The game has just started, come and check it out!
There is a planet called Hopeful where humans settled decades ago. The planet, which has a wide, diverse range of landscapes, vegetation, and animal life seemed to be uninhabited by any other life-forms and seemed perfect as well. Humans built a city on a large plain, full of businesses, homes, a hospital, a library, a school and a transportation hub to travel off-planet. In other words, they are comfortable here on Hopeful and have invested a lot of effort into creating this home.
About ten miles away from the city, a military/scientific complex was built to study the environment and protect the people in the city and scattered across the planet, but for the most part, there hasn’t been any trouble for them to deal with. Until now. No one is quite certain what is going on here, but people, livestock, and things have gone missing, projects seem to be sabotaged or destroyed, and there are reports of disturbances, violent outbursts, and unsettling feelings.
The people in charge of the complex are trying to keep a lid on these events as they try to figure out what is happening here, but word has spread to the city and now regular civilians are worried. They believe that if the complex is under attack or unstable, then they might be in trouble, too. They want to know more about what is going on here, questioning the activities of the military/scientific complex as they seek help from outside sources.
This is where the Doctors and their companions come in. Different Doctors with different companions have received distress calls from the planet Hopeful, either from inside or outside the complex, and they have gone to investigate, encountering other Doctors and companions in the process. Despite the temporal complexity of this mess, they decide to call a ‘time-out’ and band together, not knowing what they will find.
We’re going to be using OC Doctors and companions here to be on the safe side. Please avoid mentioning specific names of familiar characters, concepts, or creatures–use generic or different descriptions. The space/time traveling vessel will have a different name as well. Basically, we’re creating an alternate, different universe here. (And the Doctors won’t be related to each other, naturally, individuals of their own.)
I am a first time narrator, so bear with me here. This will be a relatively loose, casual pace structure, but it calls for a lot of players. I’m looking for Doctors and companions, other characters will be controlled, not played. I have eight characters ready, plus the option to create other Doctors or companions if you want. I think the max here might be 12 players, unless we can handle a few more.
I will judge/accept on writing quality and creativity when filling out character bios, and remember, OC creations rule. Please elaborate, show some character, motivation, emotion, thought and maybe even bring something new to the table–some insight or understanding of the character not typical of generalized description.
I promise to do my best as narrator in terms of guiding the story, yet letting players narrate their story as well and following the direction that their stories have taken. I’ve increased word count slightly if you want to be more wordy as well.
