The Monolith is to transport cruisers what the Titanic was to passenger liners. It’s massive. It’s a marvel of modern engineering. It’s luxurious. It’s the ship that everyone who’s anyone wants to be on.
The Monolith is also unique in one very special way. The upper hold is meant for the travelers: the rich elite, the middle class who couldn’t really afford this trip, and the poor average Joes who won their tickets through one of the many intergalactic contests.
The lower hold, however … that’s the part that’s interesting.
It’s meant to store cargo. Any kind of cargo. For the Monolith‘s maiden voyage, that cargo is livestock. Not just any livestock, though. These creatures are owned by Weyland-Yutani.
The upper and lower holds aren’t meant to mix. The passengers of this marvelous cruise ship don’t know that beneath them are large, noisy, lumbering herbivores. They aren’t meant to know. As far as they’re concerned, the Monolith is an instrument of their leisure. As far as Weyland-Yutani is concerned, the Monolith is a cheap and convenient way to get the livestock to one of its fledgling colonies.
What nobody knows is that the livestock is infected.
What nobody knows is that in a matter of a few short hours, something very bad is going to happen in the lower hold.
What nobody can even possibly imagine is that when the Big Bad happens and the captain finally puts out a distress call, it’s going to catch the attention of something even worse.
Welcome aboard the Monolith. We hope you enjoy your flight.
*Note: This based off the AvP shared universe (comics, movies, videogames). Looking for 6-ish full-time players. I’d like some variety in character natures, so take a look at what’s already been done when you’re creating. Feel free to create your own natures/strengths/weaknesses, as long as they fit the theme. For the sake of keeping an even playing field, no xeno, marine, synthetic, or Predator natures will be allowed. Humans only, folks.*
I’m also looking for players who’d be interested in just playing a scene or two before their characters are killed off (probably in gruesome ways), as per the nature of the AvP universe. I’d like one per scene, ideally. If you’d like to be a temp player, just state as much when you’re filling out your application. Invites will be open permanently for this reason. Gameplay probably won’t start until Monday night, as it’s a long weekend here in Canada and I won’t be able to devote much time to it before then.
One last thing: there’s a strong probability of mature language being used throughout the game, as well as graphic depictions of violence. I’ll mark it NSFW, but all ye who enter here should consider themselves already warned. :)
PLEASE NOTE: If you’ve applied but I haven’t declined or approved you yet, it’s because you’re going to be a temp character in a future scene. So please hang on–you’ll be accepted as the game progresses. :)
