They were right. They were right all along. The "hippies", the "scaremongers", all of them were right. Climate change proved to be no sham. Within 120 years, the Earth went from 70% water to 85%. Some took to boats. Some stayed on land. It became clear that the only solution lay in space. You were one of those picked to live aboard the ship.
All of humanity's best and brightest took to these ships. Yours set off for Sirius. Today, you have woken up.

Fill out the sheet, delete the stuff in [] brackets and I'll give you a scenario. I might give you a group of scenarios. Heck, you could even suggest one and if it's good enough I'll give it to you.

1) If you read this, put "keeps a purple goldfish" in your bio.
2) No cursing, flaming or explicit content.

(10) There are no more rules.

I grab the tools and practice repairing a drone before attempting to fix the others.

The drone on which you practice splutters, gives out and drops a weapon of some sort before dying. Perhaps after you finish using the tools you could rewire the (laser) weapon to one of them?

You break around five of them before figuring out the trick. Then you notice a camera drone floating next to you, presumably recording your technique for later use. It seems to have a microphone and a screen attached.

It notices, apparently. The writing on the screen says "Just get a few more fixed so we can do it ourselves." and then "It'll be easier for all of us if you do them now".

After a while, the door opens and the camera drone says "That's enough. Oh, and here's a sidearm." An intimidating-looking laser pistol pops out of a chute some way away. "Go fetch," says the drone's display.

If there are any more broken drones and they allow me to take one, I grab the sidearm, the laser weapon I put aside and a broken drone. If not I just grab the sidearm and the laser weapon then head outside.

Apparently, they don't mind. You now have a broken combat drone and a laser attachment in your inventory! Also, there's an alien with a gun right in front of you

If I picked up the side arm I shoot it if it does any suspicious movement related to killing and/or harming me. If I did not pick it up and the alien tries to harm me I try to grab the the aliens gun while I try to punch at its face. If it does not try to harm and/or maim me I say hi.

Oh, it shoots at you. A lot. You lose 20 HP and successfully shoot it in the foot.
Also, mind trying to get more players? It's kinda dull.

I try to shoot it while also trying to swat its gun away.

Did I pick up the sidearm?

You could always post in the new rpg announcement board and add a better description than the one you put there already. Or you could ask the old players if they would like to continue playing.

Bio: 2125. Verax was a professional basketball player, being one of those highly intelligent, and being a descendant of Paolo Lulu. But a year later, a bone in his arm broke and it was permanent.

Unfortunately, he couldn't continue his career, being too strong. He chose to pursue a magister in science so he could continue working.
