[COLOR=Navy]"Would you look at that..." [/COLOR]

William Freeman, puffing a cigar, gazed in wonder at the planet that hovered before him, alone in the vastness of space. He had seen something that beautiful only once before, and that was only in a picture. He owned his own ship, he'd traveled the galaxy, seen dozens of planets, but never had he seen one like this. He'd seen purple gas giants, red and grey rock planets, he had even seen the amber glow of the city, Earth; however, none of them compared to the whirl of blue oceans, grey mountains, green plains, and silver clouds of the planet before him.

[COLOR=Navy]"Yes, a new world... much like the young Earth, isn't it, Captain?"[/COLOR]

Next to Captain Freeman, stood a man in an incredibly expensive looking suit. He was out of place to say the least. Even though the ship, the [I]Tandem[/I] was one of the most top-of-the-line ships in all of the known galaxy, the capitalist, Mr. Kenneth Shepard, still stood out.

[COLOR=Navy]"Go through it one more time, Shepard."[/COLOR] The Captain said, still staring at the untouched planet that his ship was in orbit of.

[COLOR=Navy]"I would be happy to, Captain."[/COLOR] Shepard said, sounding glad. [COLOR=Navy]"The planet is, quite obviously, completely uncivilized. Normally, a planet would be used as natural resources but, though noone has set foot on the planet yet, there are massive life form readings down there... no technology though, otherwise the activists might actually get off of my back. All you and your crew are to do, is escort a group of people to the planet surface."[/COLOR]

[COLOR=Navy]"Who the hell are they and what will they do when they get there?"[/COLOR]

[COLOR=Navy]"A reasonable question. The group will be going to document, catalogue, and film as many species as possible on the planet. We have been given strict guidelines not to interfere at all with the inhabitants. They will also be constructing a documentary of the planet's wildlife to present to our stockholders... they will lose faith in the company otherwise."[/COLOR]

[COLOR=Navy]"And all we have to do is escort them to the planet, stay there until they've finished, and then get them out of there?"[/COLOR]

[COLOR=Navy]"Yes, my dear William, that is all."[/COLOR] Shepard looked eagerly at the aging captain for a response.

[COLOR=Navy]"All right, I'll do it."[/COLOR]

[COLOR=Navy]"Excellent! I assure you, you will be paid well for your services."[/COLOR]

[COLOR=Navy]"One last thing. Is it dangerous down there?"[/COLOR]

[COLOR=Navy]"Oh, please. I assure you there is nothing dangerous on the planet surface, just an entire world full of undiscovered species."[/COLOR]

This is an adventure RPG that puts you in the role of the first expedition to a new planet, thriving with life (it is loosely based off of a short story I'm writing). Before you start thinking itll be all mellow I'll have you know that this is a survival/action/adventure much in the spirit of Jurassic Park (and not the crappy third one). The expedition will begin peacefully, documenting and studying the unique creatures of the planet but quickly takes a turn for the worst and you will be struggling to stay alive against the creatures of the planet. You will play as a member of the expedition. There will be a lot of different animals to encounter, some of which are friendly, some annoying, and others vicious killers. The main action of the story will be surviving the elements of the planet and escaping.
I will try to get this going soon but it may not be up for a couple of weeks.

[size=1][b]OOC:[/b] Just a personal opinion, I think it'd be best if people described their characters a bit more. Leaving a character so blank leaves grounds to other people putting words in your mouth. If you have enough detail, you don't have to worry about other people "playing" your character. I speak from experience, and it could cause problems with "He said/She said" bullcrap.

And if anything, exaggerating on a few things will help others to seeing how your character is. And know what the "does" and "don'ts" are. You know? Give some insight, or people are going to be lost or stepping on toes.

Anyway, I think this could be interesting, so I hope everyone plays nice. Here's my sign up.

[b]Name[/b]- Isabelle DeNoche
[b]Age[/b]- 32
[b]Gender[/b]- Female
[b]Nationality[/b]- Hispanic/South America
[b]Appearance[/b]- [url=http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b7/anne-mae/girls126.jpg][u]Isabelle[/u][/url] normally wears worn-in blue jeans and a long-sleeved white shirt with the sleeves rolled up. Though it doesn't do much for her unusually pale complexion, it's easier to move around in; not to mention, comfortable.

[b]Profession[/b]- Animal Control, usually Isabelle deals with large animals such as mules, horses, and cattle. However, after she moved from South America to North America, her experience expanded into any animal from alligator to kittens. In the state of Georgia, where she resides from time to time, Isabelle is the most notorious Animal Control officer and is requested for every call. To this day, there?s not one animal she couldn?t control/capture.

[b]Reason for coming on expedition[/b]- Obviously, the new planet is as predictable as a dormant volcano. Life forms on the virgin planet are unknown as well, though scientists have been reporting that the life on the planet are more than likely animals. Her reputation preceding her, Isabelle was called in to help maintain animal/life stability as best she could.

[b]Personality[/b]- Isabelle was never a talker. She?s very antisocial, in fact, she?d tell you she prefers to be around animals more than she would humans. ?They understand me more than any man could.? to quote. Some call her cold and bitter, some call her other forms of racial names. She?d just as soon as throw you into a cage of wild animals without a bat of an eye, if provoked enough. It?s best to let her do her job and keep her at a professional distance. [/size]
