-----The Story-----

July 1, 2012: Construction of the International Space Station is completed. Call goes out for employees of all nationalities to man the station: astronauts, physicists, chemists, doctors, etc.

July 30, 2012: After undergoing a series of intensive physical and mental tests, you are hired as an astronaut for the International Space Station.

August 2, 2012: Artemis 16, the manned flight to Mars, is successfully launched from the I.S.S. On September 7, 2014, astronauts Joseph Arlington(of the United States of America) and Jian Guo Li(of the Peoples' Republic of China) become the first human beings to set foot on Mars.
August 21, 2012: The I.S.S. launches a series of satellites and robots destined for Venus. These objects all reach the planet successfully, and unprecedented amounts of information are gathered about the second planet in the solar system.

September 19, 2014: Dr. Dietrich Beckenbauer, Sc.D., acting director of the I.S.S., announces the intention to launch another, highly ambitious project. The I.S.S. intends to put human boots on the planet Venus by the year 2019 at the latest. This project is dubbed Dionysus.

January 11, 2015: You are selected by the I.S.S. as one of the astronauts to be sent to Venus. You begin extensive training for this mission.

April 16, 2018: Five astronauts that were selected for the Venus mission are sent into space on Dionysus 4.

April 30, 2018: Dionysus 4 sustains serious damage to its fuel tanks and is ordered to return to the I.S.S. immediately. The mission is aborted.

May 7, 2018: Dionysus 4 is unable to reach the I.S.S. as it is captured by the gravitational pull of a large nearby meteoroid and driven far off course. By the time it recovers from the meteoroid, it has lost its bearings.

May 21, 2018: Dionysus 4 has lost the last vestiges of its fuel by this point. Communications from the shuttle and her crew have all ceased, and the crew is given up for dead. In the public uproar following the incident, Dr. Daniel Lancaster, the longtime head of engineering sciences at the I.S.S., is forced to resign.

May 29, 2018: Dionysus 4, which has been drifting in space for the last week, is caught in the gravitational pull of an invisible black hole. It crosses the horizon line. The shuttle and her crew are nearly crushed before, by some chance miracle, it is ejected into space when the massive gravity of the black hole suddenly shifts.

June 8, 2018: The Dionysus 4 and her crew are caught once again in the gravitational pull of an alien planet, and bail out into seperate escape pods before crashlanding on the surface.

Its good. Just added in your bonuses from the skills.

You've managed to survive impact, though some sort of fog is blocking your view out of the pod. You're still strapped into your safety harness, and your instruments are beginning to flicker, and die.

What do you do? (Though from now on, let us understand that you should always react after I post ^^)

I unlatch myself from the safety devices, then search the pod for anything useful (weapons, food, water, etc.).

Theres not much in the pod. It was designed for survival, after all. You check a few instruments, but most are dead, or clearly malfuntioning. For example, one says the date is '26 July 2659'. Your radio spits out a few lines before dieing:

Sieg Heil to the President, Gasman.
Bombs away is your punishment!
Pulverize the Eiffle Towers,
Who critisize your goverment!*


It must have caught a stray frequency from a tower before you entered the wormhole. Doesn't really matter, seeing as its stopped now. As you unstrap yourself, you hear a light tapping sound. Something is tapping your escape pod.

This looks quite interesting. Well, not like your other RPGs weren't, it's just that (as snowguy13 knows very well) I've been really busy, and an RPG now has to be exceptional to make me join it. I have to say I was surprised to see so little participation; then again, it's only been two days.

I've noticed that large OPs have a tendency to scare players off sometimes.

But, yeah. I just wanted to check up on the thread. I'll be representing a pretty important organization in the game, so you'll see me later. Just not now that Mav is just starting.

You touch down onto the planet, and hear a loud spash as you land: You've landed in some body of water. Your craft is stable though, so the body must not be too deep.

The Escape Pod is fairly waterproof, though the materials will eventually let water in as they degrade. You should have a few minutes before you need to get out.

What do you do? (Just saying to indicate that you should always reply with a reaction after I post. ^^)

[Sorry it's been awhile. D: ]

I take my small knife in hand, and cautiously sneak toward the originating point of the tapping.

You're inside your pod. I'll just adapt it accordingly, assuming you want to see whats disturbing your craft.

You attempt to open the hatch to the pod as quietly as possible. However, as you open the hatch, a hiss of gas escapes, and the tapping suddenly stops. You clamber quickly out of the craft, and wheel around to see what the source of the noise was.

You turn around to discover a shadowy figure hunched over ontop of your pod. It stares at you with its large yellow eyes. It stands up to meet you eye to eye, and you notice that its only a few feet tall. You're a few feet away, so you can't make a good guess, but it looks faintly like some sort of bi-pedal cat.

[I just can't keep from making myself look dumb, can I? Sorry about that. D: ]

Startled as much as the cat-like creature, I gawk for a while. Then, I slowly reach toward it, intending to test whether it is benign or hostile.

"Well, mama always said 'Stupid is as stupid does'." +1 Internet if you get that reference. :P

You stare open mouthed at it, and it stares back. You slowly reach your hand out to touch it...

It immediately tenses up, and growls. You hear a rustling sound, and suddenly find an uncountable amount of eyes staring at you from all around. You look back up to find the metal barrel of a pistol pointed in your face.

"Who. Are. You?"

I have heard it, but I had to cheat to find its source. It's a line from Forrest Gump and one that he himself commonly declares when asked of his intelligence. It was adopted from the saying "Handsome is as handsome does." I'm still a cheater. :P

I shift to a passive position to show that I'm not an aggressor, then say, calmly and slowly, "I am an astronaut, commissioned by the people of Earth, to explore this planet. I have been stranded by an unfortunate series of events."

[I never liked those books.]

'Cheaters never prosper', as mama always said. Nice reference of your own, by the way. :P

You back off, and put up your hands in a non-threatening gesture. The creature speaks:

"Astro-not? Sounds like some sort of Triad trap. Who else walks around in fancy helmets like you?"

Theres a murmuring of aggreement from the crowd; The beginnings of a mob.

"I say, we kill him. Right here, right now. Quick and easy like."

The crowd furthers its aggreement, and begins to become exited. The creature loads its weapon, and takes aim.
