You are going to Pandora or Earth II in the year 2030. This is a intermediate roleplay for people who are committed and ready to play. Pandora is almost twice the size of earth. It is orbiting two suns. One little that is orbiting a much bigger one. The little one burns hotter than the smaller making it redder. Pandora is 60% water, much like earth.
Pandora. The place you will call second home. It is a planet in another galaxy close to the Milky Way. We found this galaxy when monitoring Pluto. White monitoring it we watched as it seemingly disappeared. NASA was baffled. Using a new telescope developed by Same E. Peters NASA found that Pluto had not disappeared but merely went through a worm hole. Scientists believe that this is what was dragging Pluto from our course around the Sun. In that Galaxy Pandora is the planet we have chosen for you to live on. It was the closest to the worm hole, that was inhabitable, though still far enough away that you wouldn't have to worry about it.
Some information about Pandora. It is nearly twice the size of our home planet Earth. It lives by two suns. One a miniature red sun and the other a red giant. The miniature sun is closer to Pandora giving it an appearance to be bigger when in actuality it circles the red giant next to it.
You have been specially chosen to inhabit this planet. We will send you in, in small groups of 3-7 to prevent mix ups. When you land on your planet you will be greeted by your new leader. Me. I will be the first one onto this new planet. As of now we don't know if will be hostile or hospitable. Most likely hostile. And we chose you for this planet because we thought you were the most capable of surviving. You will discover new plants and animals. You will discover new elements never before seen by humans. You will raise your children and grandchildren into a new world. And you will become the first citizens of Pandora.
No god-modding, like making yourself invisible.
No meta-gaming, like knowing things you character wouldn't have known.
No power-playing, like taking control of others characters without there approval.
This is an intermediate roleplay so we expect you to use proper grammar, punctuation, and if you can, when you post, post more than one line of text.

As I sat in the room he rubbed his palms. I was nervous and excited at the same time. My palms were sweaty with anticipation. I heard a rustling and his head jerked up. It was just the secretary rustling a paper. Calm down, man, its just a another planet, I though sarcastically. Suddenly the secretary called my name.
"Seph Wintre?" I stood up. "Follow me." I walked after her, seemingly not in control of my body. Snap out of it. I shook himself angrily. You are a soldier, and the second in command! You can't be getting the jitters. The secretary led him to a room and sent him in. Inside he found a professor going over paperwork with some minor colleagues. I cleared my throat. The professor stood abruptly and turned around. He looked like Albert Einstein.
"Oh hello, you must be Seph Wintre. Welcome." He looked around and noticed as if for the first time the colleagues. "Out, all of you now!" The underlings scurried out. He smiled at me. "I'm sure you must be nervous. Don't worry." He patted me on the shoulder. "It will all be fine, We've tested this before!" I nodded my acceptance.
"Let's just get this over with." He nodded several times
"Yes, yes of course. Follow me." I followed him to an adjacent room. Inside the room was a pod almost shaped like a pea, must more pointed. It was the size of a medium sized horse. I gulped. "This is you pod. ANTRO 18. You will be secure in here while going through the worm hole. Please step in." With that he pressed a remote button and the door lifted up. I stepped in. He said, "Ah yes, you must take off your shirt, almost forgot that." That was in no way comforting, I wondered what else he forgot. He started connecting cords to me saying "This is to keep your molecules in place, no worry, just don't want you to come out as a mutant... or dead i guess." I glared at him.
"Please just shut up and get on with it." He glanced at me and the next wire he put in was a little sharp. I yelped out of surprise.
"Oh, sorry my bad." I merely growled. "Okay now i'm going to inject you with this." He held up a fair sized syringe. "This will knock you out till you get to Pandora. It also contains the fundamental nesecities for survival, food, water, you know those things. Anyway next thing you will see is your new home." With that he jabbed the needle into my arm. He pushed all the light blue liquid in me, pulled it out and slammed the door. I could feel my muscles stiffen up. I remembered some words from the doctor who briefed me before i could come here. Just breathe through you nose and let it out your mouth, in and out until you are asleep. In and out. I breathed. In and out. Breathe. In and... out... In a... Black.
((Well lets see, energy weapons probably will be developed on a clean energy eventually, so lets say solar. Meaning that energy weapons would have a battery that would be charged by the solar energy, and of course can be removed and charged faster if solar is unavailable. Since it runs off a battery it will also run off a limited number of shots before it needs recharging.
By the way most of this is what i would expect in the next 17-20 years. Hover cars are on Earth, though won't be on Pandora for quite a while i believe. On Earth hover cars work off of magnets in the road and in the car, with a wheel that adjust the magnets in the car accordingly so it will fly above the ground without polluting. If there is anything else if haven't covered directly please ask and i will try to develop a story or an answer. If i cannot than i suppose someone here can. Maybe you could.))

((One thing... Change the year of departure, as for that age we could only reach Mars... As for what year it should be... 2153... As for that age we might have perfected space travel and many things more....
((I'm getting a better view of things, gradually, though let me go back to the robotics for a moment. Are robotic limbs (Not eyes, organs and such, just limbs. Like prosthetic limbs after losing one, but more advanced) possible at this time? Or is that still many years away from being perfected? Not the kind of things that'd have tons of advantages, but limbs that'd provide somebody missing one with one that is just as good, controls just as well but, of course, since it's metal it's somewhat tougher and has a stronger grip. Would probably still look inhumanly robotic though...
Alright, I'll just come straight out with what I've been considering and you can judge whether it'd be acceptable or not. I was considering using a character who is a career hunter and lost a limb sometime prior to this expedition, and not has a robotic arm in its place. Also considered her weapon of choice being a 'tech-bow', which I was a little apprehensive about since your character has a bow and the thing I'm talking about would essentially be a more 'high-tech' bow with greater standards of arrow speed and power than a standard bow. Now that that's out there on the table, you're free to judge.))
If we have now bionical hands, why not in 17 years we have perfected bionic limbs... As for organs, stem cells are the key for them, in 2013 we could make a kidney with them, also we (almost) cured Diabetes... So all that will be possible in 2030 and if we change the age to 2153, it will be more than possible...))
((Also, in 2153 you could make skin all over your robotic arm, or just make a new arm (I think that you will choose Robotic...) So thats on the table for Grey...)) ((Also, gray, do you want an moderator, i saw that you werent so much online. And you know that im online almost always (Not in Thusdays and Fridays as i got job.))
((Oh and also multiple departures to Pandora, as the ships would be called Proeliator I , Proeliator II , Civis I ,Civis II and Imperator I (Proeliator means Warriors, Civis means CItizen and Imperator means Emperor.) I would think that Juliet came in Proeliator II (The Third Ship to come to Pandora... And i would have came in Proeliator I, The first ship to come, along with Gray(?)) (I said the order because of the people that came (I was first (not counting the creator duh) Hammer was second and juliet was third...)) ((Like the idea?))
((Okay time to go over some things. First from bottom up. Kokolo yes i do need a moderator and am appointing it to you if you want the job. you are right that i can't get on as much and since you were the first to apply and i know you the best you are the one i appoint. and yes i agree with your idea. We get in pods loaded into a ship full off supplies we might need on the new earth.
next Juliet look at my intro post and my IC post they should give you an idea of were to start, i need to get going on my own IC so i can greet you there, that seems appropiate.
so for the 2153 thing, right now they are saying the could go to mars next year, though it would take three years to get there. I'm saying that everyone was so excited to get to the new planet that they put all the smartest scientists together and got them to work as fast as the could for a fast compact way to rocket a pod through the worm hole, register the time than activate the backup boosters to push it to Pandora.
Now for the bionic part. I'm think OK. But it has to have a drawback. It shouldn't have skin covering it, but i would say its fine. Limit yourself though we don't want any godmoding. Also my bow is going to be a higher tech kind of level. Though not to the level that its not made of wood))
((Nope, the closest date to Mars is 2023 (2026 they will arrive...). Its a returnless trip... http://applicants.mars-one.com/ here you have the website with the application to join the Mars trip... And the worm holes are inaccecible because of their tiny size and the estimated date to have Worm hole travel is 2084. Also Worm Holes are throught Spacetime and are impredictable, even if you took EXACTLY the same time as the other ship you might arrive in 3000 after or before. Also if a ship comes 1 year before the signal for supplies come, it would be a paradox as if the ship with supplies is already there they wont need a ship with supplies and they wont call one so the ship would have never existed. Essential Time travel rules..))
Dark, thats the one word the would be used to describe what i was seeing. Though its still not quite appropriate. It was like the dark was sucking up any sort of light and making it blacker than black. I realized that that was a thought! I was waking up. But why couldn't i see anything? As soon as that thought popped into my head i saw a red light. I tried to move closer but found i couldn't move at all. I couldn't even see my body i realized! Than, POP! Bright white light in my eyes. Than the light left my eyes. After a moment when the flashing stopped i could look around. I was still strapped down in my pod, without my shirt. It was next to me hanging on a hook. There was a woman in a white cloak infront of me putting away a small flashlight. She must have been shining it in my eye to see if my eyelid would contract.
I smiled to myself. I was here on Pandora. I struggled at my bonds. Looking over at the nurse i cleared my throat. She glanced over at me, than smiled embarrassed that i was just stuck there. "Sorry dear, let me help you out of that." She clicked the button holding the strap retracting them.
"Thanks!" I almost shouted that. I took a couple steps than fell down. Must be from no use, I stood up again, and grabbed onto the bod wall. Grabbing my shirt and pulling it on i started walking towards the exit. The nurse trailed behind me.
"Wait i need to take more tests!"
"Later i need to see this!" She smiled.
"Exits that way." She gestured the other direction. I nodded my thanks and sprinted for the door as fast as i could with my cramped legs.
((I would say that the can shoot more acuartly and faster. Basiclly as long as you can explain it to me i will exept it. For example Bow has a target sensor right were the arrow goes so it can direct the arrow mid flight using the tail fins so it can hit something better. Also for harder, new more flexible thats also stronger such as spider web. You get the ghist of it, use it if you want.))((hmm problem suggestions to time travel thing? I'm thinking they some how developed a machine within the ship to keep its particles in place and restrain the time?))
