    Welcome to the Transformers: Exploration RPG!

    As the war on Cybertron rages on, the planet's resources are beginning to dwindle. In an attempt at keeping the planet alive Optimus Prime and Megatron have sent out teams to explore space to find planets that would have resources to replenish the ones being lost on Cybertron. As the search begins the Autobot team and the Decepticon team are currently unaware of each other and are merely focused on their mission. The Autobots: to find a way to negotiate with the planets inhabited with life. The Decepticons: to get the resources by any means necessary.

    Here are the ground rules:

    1. This RPG is: [​IMG] (When it comes to swearing, just use the TF equivalent. Scrap, slag, etc.)

    2. If there is an occurrence where you want to leave the ship, you must clear it with the GM's first.

    3. Damage amounts practically rival Cybertron in the punishment you can take, this isn't the Movieverse, you can survive being shot several times.

    4. Obey your commanding officers(Ultra Magnus and Starscream) as much as it'd be in-character. Ad if you don't, expect possible repercussions...in-character.

    5. Talk with each other out of the thread, plan things and get to know each other a little better. Also, talking in-character in-game is encouraged.

    6. Have fun. A game without fun is work, and I'm sure most of us don't enjoy work.

    7. Posting order is that you can post twice before everyone else posts.

    8. If you have a question, don't be afraid to ask us.

    AUTOBOTS: Your ship is the Hope's Hand. Your ship has a bridge, a training room, a lounge, a medbay, a lab, a cargo hold and personal quarters for each crewmember plus a few more.

    Military Commander: Ultra Magnus (defers to Jetfire for science) [Part of Warrior Team]
    Scientific Commander: Jetfire (defers to Ultra Magnus for non-science) [Part of Science & Explore Teams]
    Science Team: Sireen (to be joined by Perceptor)
    Warrior Team: Whirl, Springer, Sideswipe, Maxima
    Exploration Team: Deep Dive, Bumblebee, Rodimus (To be joined by Arcee)
    Flex Member (Warrior/Exploration/Science Assistant): Smokescreen

    Springer's in-charge of Warrior team unless Magnus or Jetfire are there (and Jetfire can't directly over-rule Springer in a combat situation).

    Smokescreen is the only one who can sub for command of the Warrior team if Springer is unavailable (other than Magnus and Jetfire, of course) [And if needed, Bumblebee can be pulled instead of Smokescreen]

    Deep Dive is the command sub for Bumblebee on the exploration team (other than Jetfire. Magnus would defer to Deep Dive in some situations)

    DECEPTICONs: Your ships is the Crescent Talon. Your ship has a bridge, a training room, a lounge, a medbay, a lab, a cargo hold, an interrogation room and personal quarters for each crewmember plus a few more.

    Commander: Starscream
    2nd-In-Command: Dreadwing
    Science Officer: Ragewing (to be replaced by Knock Out when he arrives; Ragewing would just become a Science Team Member)
    Science Team: Misfire, Ragewing, (Knockout when he joins; Starscream at times)
    Mayhem Attack Squad Leader: Sharpshot
    Mayhem Attack Squad: Sharpshot, Twinstrike, Sunstorm, Blitzwing
    Ground Forces: Ripclaw, Dead End, Barricade (Swindle when he joins)

    Barricade commands Ground Forces (and is considered to outrank everyone but Starscream, Dreadwing, Ragwing, Knockout and Sharpshot; and is allowed to ignore Sharpshot within reason)

    *Incoming Transmission from Megatron*

    “Greetings, my fellow Decepticons. I wish to congratulate you for stepping up and accepting the great responsibility of fueling the war effort against the Autobots.”

    “This mission you are on is perhaps the most important thing you will ever be asked to do in your lives within the Decepticon ranks. You must go out into the stars and plunder lesser worlds of their resources. And any greater worlds to be conquered in the name of the Decepticon Empire.”

    “Failure to do so, might cost us the war, and most likely, your lives.” He grunted.

    “Now, you’re all here for a purpose, for either your skill…” Megatron says as he glances at Dreadwing.

    “Or your failures.”

    He glances and strengthens his ever present scowl at Starscream.

    “Never the less, I admire your devotion to our cause and I do hope that your mission is a great success. And that the Crescent Talon will return intact with a bountiful harvest.”

    “For the glory of the Decepticons and a reborn Cybertron!”

    *Transmission Ended*

    *Transmission from Optimus Prime*

    “Autobots, I thank you for joining this exploration mission.” Optimus Prime spoke to the Autobot exploration team that was on board the Hope's Hand through the communication device. “As you all have been briefed about when you either volunteered or were asked to join this mission, Cybertron is in desperate means of new resources – without them our planet will die. As such the future of our planet, and the hope of a new beginning once this war is over, lies in your hands.”

    “Your task is to search the galaxy for planets with suitable resources that could replenish our own. I trust that you will negotiate with the planets that are inhabited for life. We will be relying on these planets, and there is no need to cause any hostility towards future allies. I have faith in all of you that you will accomplish your mission.”

    “You are all under the command of Ultra Magnus and Jetfire while you are on this mission, and I trust that you will follow their command just as well as you would mine. I will keep in contact with you to get progress reports on how you are all doing, and I will keep you informed on what is happening back here on Cybertron as well. I wish you all the best of luck.”

    *Transmission Ended*

    Blitzwing, as usual, didn't listen. He just sat down and angrily murmured

    Smokescreen was excited, he was young, but he felt like he was ready

    Ragewing rolled her optics.
    "So long my beutyfull Bilogical protoforms i am going to miss you." she said before isniting her thrusters.
    "Sorry but mama wants to see you all burrrrrn." she smiled viciosly setting her lab ablaze there would be more time to cultivate more of her precious Germtological babies the future.
    but first to make sure no one copied her reserch.

    Whirl stopped waxing one of his machine guns as he heard the transmission from the famous leader Optimus Prime. He often doesn't listen to such speeches or lectures if they were made by someone who was ether boring or overbearing like with Ultra Magnus whom Whirl wished could just lighten up but with Optimus it was different. As much as he doesn't show it he was grateful to Optimus for even bothering to help him out and gave him a new purpose in life. As the transmission ended he got up to get some more wax thinking of doing some prank later on to one of his teammates.

    ________________________________________


    Barricade listened carefully to Megatron's words as soon as he woke up from stasis in his bed chamber. He knows full well what happens to the poor fools who even made one mistake to make the infamous tyrant go for their throats. He then got out of the chamber and started to prepare to go to the training room. As he walked to the training room he began to ponder on how he'll cope with his new teammates. Most of them made him want to hit them over the head for being either stupid or incompetant while others are well trained but have issues that clouds their judgement. Nonetheless he'll find a way to for the Decepticon cause.

    Blitzwing decided he was bored, and went to the training room. I'm one of the best here....and still no command..... he thought.

    Smokescreen was practically bouncing in his quarters. He was probable more excited than all his other crew mates

    "Rock hunt? No way, we are being sent to find new worlds, and explore the galaxy! Come on, you know that's awesome!" Smokescreen said

    Deep Dive's concentration was broken by the transmission, not that he minded, his duty as an Autobot rivaled his need for meditation. He rose from the bottom of his tank and onto the floor of his "dojo" he made for himself out of his quarters.

    He was optimistic about the journey, but deep down he had a feeling it was gonna be one of those missions.

    __________________

    Twinstrike stalked around the halls of the ship, he had been searching for his quarters for some time.

    "I said we should've picked the one on the LEFT!" The left head growled.

    "And I said we should've picked the one on the RIGHT!" The right head snarled back.

    Blitzwing saw twin strike arguing heads.
    "Maybe you should just look at the slaggin' map."

    _________________________________

    Smokescreen knew that he was going to have a mission like this. He just knew it! He couldn't wait to see the new places, the cool species, and know he is doing something important!

    "And maybe you should mind your own business...Purple-Wing-Guy!" He roared back.

    Twinstrike wasn't good with names, he just knew that there were three guys on this ship whose names ended in "wing".

    And so far, he already didn't really like one of them.

    Bumblebee intently listened to every word that Optimus said. Optimus had always been somewhat of a mentor to him, and the young Autobot had looked up to him for as long as he could remember. That was probably why he always tried to make sure that he wouldn't somehow disappoint the Autobot leader. And he was really glad that he had been assigned to the mission.

    As a scout, being on this mission seemed like the perfect mission for him. Exploring, searching for new resources, all that stuff sounded great to Bumblebee.

    _________________

    Starscream scowled as Megatron finished his transmission. How dare he punish him this way! Sending him on an exploration mission, when he clearly would be better off on Cybertron helping the Decepticons win the war. One day he would show Megatron. He, Starscream, would become leader of the Decepticons and everyone would see how much of a better leader he could be, and what a failure Megatron truly was.

    He just had to get through this first. Glancing over at Dreadwing, Starscream knew that he was going to have to be careful about what he said and did while in command of the Crescent Talon, no doubt if he tried to do anything treacherous - word would get to Megatron in no time.

    "Purple wing guy?!? Listen here you....twerps.... I have seen more combat than both of your heads combined! I am Blitzwing, strongest of the triple changers, and if you think that some freak like you scares me, you gotta another thing coming!" Blitzwing was angry, shouting, the whole ship could hear him.

    Whirl paused to listen to Smokescreen's chatter with Maxima since he lives next door to the kid. He then chuckled evilly as he thought of making Smokescreen his latest victim to one of his pranks. Smokescreen's a good natured kid but the kind that was perfect to fall into a prank. He quickly grabbed a bucket full of used oil with some string then he sneaked out of his room towards Smokescreen's doorwat and placed the bucket on top of the doorwat then tied the string to the handle then sneak back into his room quickly.

    "I'm SOOO going to get busted for this but it'll be worth it to see the look on the kid's face! " He thought with michivous glee.

    _______________________________________________

    Both Blitzwing and Twinstrike's yelling caught the attention of Barricade down the hall. He sighed in frustration and anger at the sight. Being at one of the top exploration vessels and yet he still have to put up with short tempered idoits. He walked towards them to try and put a stop to it. He knew he'll likely fail seeing how these are some of the more stubborn Decepticons but still he had to do something.

    "Will you two scrap for brains just knock it off with the shouting already?!" Barricade yelled sharply at both Twinstrike and Blitzwing. "Unless you want Starscream to find out I suggest you both keep a lid on this pointless argument!"

    Misfire paid half attention what Megatron had said. Misfire had to force himself to keep still and looking at new datapadd he borrowed from place sort of forgotten. As he walks into the science lab....

    "I guess they won't miss this has really simple logic game. OOHH Purple shiny rocks are not good for Energon hunting."

    (Is Twinstrike talking to Misfire?)

    Sireen look at the moniter and sighed he already catalog the stock and cross reference all the injuries the crew were prone to and made mental note. Looking at his new team mate Perceptor with shrug.

    "Exploration, is another word for combat. I must engage the crew members to complete their physicals."
