    The Rules:

    Rule One:

    During posts where your character is not actively talking and/or fighting with another player character (where your posts need to be shorter and go back and forth), all posts need to be at least 12 sentences. When the character is in an active moment; the post can be 6 sentences.

    Rule Two:
    Grammar and Spell Check are your friend. If you have a program that you can type in that has spell-check, please use it if you need it.

    Rule Three:
    Please wait for two others to post before you post again. I'm the only exception to this, and it is only for NPC characters, I have to follow it for any of my own. One other exception is in a 1 vs. 1 fight. You are allowed to post after that person as long it is combat and you have something you can respond to while still following the rules.

    Rule Four:
    No godmodding. Only do the actions of your character, not anyone else's. If you have permission from another player, you may do so, but only if you have it.

    Rule Five:
    The NPCs are considered characters too for the purposes of controlling actions. You cannot have an NPC do or say something without permission from me.

    Rule Six:
    Please properly show all thoughts and plans of the characters and follow character-player separation. Character-player separation means; just because you as a player knows something doesn't mean your character does.

    Rule Seven:

    The Damage is on Unicron-Trilogy levels. It takes a lot to get hurt; and even more to be impaired by an injury. Death is rare; being impaired uncommon.

    Episodes (Sections/Plots):

    Prologue (Before The RPG):

    The Great War has lasted for nearly 100 years. Cybertron has gotten torn to shreds; and most areas are a shadow of what they once were.

    Of the cities: Iacon, Polyhex, Kalis, Tarn, Vos, and Kaon; the Autobots barely manage to hold on to Iacon and Kalis; while the Decepticons have captured Tarn, Vos, and Kaon. Mostly a wasteland from the war, neither side holds Polyhex; nor finds any benefit in trying to.

    Energy reserves are starting to drop; as the planet begins using its energy to heal itself. The drops aren't enough to worry the Decepticons; but the Autobots are starting to gain concerns.

    Episode #1: The Space Bridge
    Plots: The Space Bridge (5); The Search For Vector Prime (4) [2-Parter Plot]; Communications Chaos (3)

    Description: The Decepticons have finally had a breakthrough in scientific technology! A space bridge, technology that had been lost since the days of the ancients has now been restored. Once they build one large enough in the orbit of Cybertron; the Decepticons will have something to aid them in their conquest of the galaxy (once the Autobots are destroyed; of course).

    Due to shifting climates; energon storms in the upper atmosphere of the planet are causing horrendous communication problems for both sides. Soundwave is the only one capable of a two way link. Otherwise, no contact is possible.

    And perhaps most of all; the Autobots have learned something important. After uncovering records in Iacon; they have found out that the guardian of space and time, and one of the original 13 Primes; Vector Prime; is sealed in the area now known as the Sea Of Rust; to be awakened in a time of need.

    The Setting:

    This is a new universe based off of Unicron Trilogy, with some influences from the movies, G1, Prime, WFC/FOC and other sources.

    Character Goals:

    Now, at this point, you guys come in somewhat. Before we get started; each of you need to post each of your character's CURRENT primary goal (we'll do this before each episode).

    You have 1 or 2 sentences to describe the goal; and 2 to 4 sentences to describe how that character will attempt that goal.

    These goals can be:
    A. Episode. Be based on one of the Episode Plots (In this case; The Space Bridge, Search For Vector Prime, or Communications Chaos). Something your character wants to do in relation to one of these.
    B. Character. Be based on another character (cannot be an NPC). This might be a "I want to kill him" goal; or, something else. If you pick the character himself (see below); say how others can affect them.
    C. Faction. Be based on factions. Maybe a member of the Autobots (or Decepticons) want to create a new team for that faction. Maybe someone wants to make their own faction. Any goals that would affect a faction. Could be as simple as, "Wants to do the the best to help the Autobots".

    Once everyone has posted their goals, I'll make the first REALLY BIG post. Remember; only one goal per character.
    It needs to be a generally specific one (though not too specific); but it doesn't need to be fulfilled in Episode 1 if there's not a good time for it.

    Be as creative as you want with it. If there is something conflicting with what is going on; I'll talk to you about it. But I'd much rather you try for something interesting and me have to talk to you about it; than you try something generic.

    Here are mine (NPCs don't get listed goals):

    Megatron:
    Episode: Megatron wants to bring the space bridge online and test it to make sure it works. He'll do this by gathering energon from a reservoir in the Sea of Rust. The space bridge is located in Vos; so he'll need it transported there by a flight-enabled transport ship.

    Ratchet:
    Character: Himself. He is feeling useless; being a medic and not a trained warrior like the others. Someone needs to help boost him up and make him feel better. They can probably do this by showing him that he can fight and/or show that his medical skills truly make a difference.

    Bumblebee:
    Character: Optimus Prime. Bumblebee wants to talk to Optimus about the war. He wants to know what his thoughts are, where he thinks things are headed; and where they both fit in everything. He is worried about the future of Cybertron, and wants to know what life will bring

    Starscream:
    Episode: Starscream is trying to gain favor in Megatron's eyes. He'll do that by making sure that everything goes perfectly (or as perfectly as it can) at the Space Bridge test. He'll even help with transporting energon (as long as it doesn't endanger his well-being, of course).

    Character: Jetfire often wonders why he was chosen as Second in Command of the Autobots even though he is younger than a lot of the other warriors. He also questions if anyone really trusts him because he is a flyer, and a lot of Seekers and flyers are Decepticons.

    Shatterpoint
    Episode: Shatterpoint spends his spare time reading through the archives. Turns out he found something interesting and it leads to the Sea of Rust. Perhaps this is the time to prove himself worthy of being a Decepticon.


    Optimus Prime
    Episode: Optimus leads his troops to the Sea of Rust to locate and awaken Vector Prime. He believes that if Vector Prime was to fall into Decepticon hands, the war for Cybertron may be lost.

    (It begins! I'm doing a post with everyone to set up; and then we'll go from here)

    Episode 1: The Space Bridge

    Optimus Prime stood in the command center of Autobot HQ with his lieutenants; Jetfire and Springer.

    "Retrieving Vector Prime should be our number one objective," Optimus said.

    "I agree. The thought of another Prime, still alive, is astonishing!" Jetfire replied.

    Looking at the other two, Springer said, "Optimus, I'll get a team together for the mission. Maybe I can pin down the location a bit closer too."

    "Don't worry about that Springer, I'll handle it," Optimus said, "I was the one who found the data, after all. You just focus on getting the team together. No need to ask Ratchet and Bumblebee, they're already with us."

    Springer nodded, "Got it!" and left the main level of the command center.

    Optimus looked to Jetfire, "Status on the communications problems?"
    "Still negative. Nothing is working."

    Optimus nodded grimly, "I'll need you to remain here then; and oversee Autobot efforts. If something happens out there, the Autobots need a strong leader here."

    Jetfire nodded, but seemingly reluctant, "Yes, sir."

    ________________

    "Ka-blam! The Decepticons sure seem excited about their space bridge. Pow! I wish Prime would let us mess it up for them," Warpath announced to the main room of the HQ.

    "I'd be onboard for that, I love giv'n the Cons a bad day," Wheeljack replied.

    Ratchet crossed his arms, "There will be none of that you two. We can't spare the firepower."

    "Come on, doc!" Wheeljack called from his seat.

    "Calling me doc will get you nowhere, Wheeljack," Ratchet replied angrily.

    "He doesn't like being called Doc," Hot Shot said to Wheeljack, once Ratchet was far enough away. Cliffjumper added, "He hates it in fact. With a passion."

    Wheeljack stood up and walked off, "Whatever!"

    Just joining the guys, Arcee walked up behind them, "What's with Wheeljack?"

    Cliffjumper waved his hands around, "Same thing that's already with Wheeljack. The dude is a loner if I ever saw one."

    Arcee shrugged, before asking, "Hey Cliff; you said there was something in the Iacon library that might help us?"

    "Yeah, apparently there are some old record books that list all energon sources."

    "Should we check it out? Our energon supplies are starting to run low."
    "Sure, I've got nothing better to do."

    The two walk away. Warpath looked to Hot Shot with a laugh, "What are we -blam!- still doing here?"

    "Don't know. Hey, I think Overhaul, Sideswipe and Bumblebee are in weapons training. Let's see how they're doing!"

    "Great -kaboom- idea, kid!"

    "See ya, Ratchet!" Hot Shot yelled to the other side of the room. Ratchet raised his hand without looking at them, "Yeah, yeah, so long."

    Weapons Training:

    Springer knew where the first place to look for the toughest Autobots is. He entered the Weapons Training facility, and immediately announced, "I'm looking for someone who wouldn't mind coming on a mission with me. Courtesy of Optimus himself."

    He hesitated to continue with the details, but eventually did. "We need as many Autobots as possible to head on a mission to the Sea of Rust."

    "What?" Sideswipe interrupted, "You guys want to go the the Sea of Rust? Right now, when all these storms are breaking?"

    "I don't see a better time for it!" Springer winked. "So, who's with us?"

    __________ *Faction Symbol Rotates*

    Transport Ship:

    Shockwave sat by a holographic terminal. He wanted to make sure the coordinates are percise before entering a comm.-free area. He went over the details one last time, then
    got back up.

    Everyone seemed strangely anxious about the upcoming mission. Shockwave wasn't in the slightest. "Once you think everything through, and consider any possible outcome, it is easy to avoid complications." He thought.

    The ship was nearing takeoff. "Starscream, have you prepared everything for launch?" He asked.

    Sideswipe looked to the other two, "I don't know, Springer."

    Overhaul pounds his fists together with an excited growl, "Well, I'm game! Always up for some explorin'! Haven't been able to check out the Rust Sea in a LONG time."

    Right behind Springer; Warpath and Hot Shot walk up.

    "Did you say the Rust Sea?" Hot Shot asked incredulously. Overhaul nodded, "Yeah, Springer wants us on a mission to go there."

    Warpath nodded, "Yes! A mission!"

    Hot Shot shook his head, "You can count me out! That stuff makes a mess of my servos."
    Sideswipe nodded in agreement, "Yeah, sorry, Springer, but I'm with Hot Shot."

    Overhaul turned to Bumblebee, "What do you say, 'Bee?"

    Command Center:

    Jetfire worked on the communications, trying to get them back up.

    Sighing, he wondered why Optimus did not want him to go out with Springer. True, he was the Second in Command, but that did not mean that he was incapable as a leader. While he was younger than most mechs there, he was also just as skilled.

    Even now, Jetfire wondered if his leader did not trust him because he was a flyer. Most flyers were Decepticons, so maybe Prime thought that he was not as trustworthy because of potential Decepticon loyalties.

    It irked him to no end. Why did it always seem like he was relegated to duties off the battlefield?

    Jetfire let his head fall onto the console. The fact that he was given an important duty did not help ease his processor at all. If anything, it made it worse. How could he be so sure that mechs trusted him and thought of him as a capable leader?

    "I'm going," Bumblebee said to Overhaul. "Optimus already knows that I am."

    Bumblebee was excited about going on the mission, though a little nervous as well with the storms that were breaking around the Rust Sea. As one of the youngest Autobots sometimes he felt like he needed to prove himself to the others. Plus he always wanted to help any way that he could. If he was asked to go on a mission, he generally accepted it. He had another reason for going on this mission though. He was wanting to talk to Optimus about a few things regarding the war. He hadn't had a chance to talk to the Autobot leader recently. Hopefully this would give him an opportunity to do so.

    The scout turned his attention back to the others in the room. He could focus on trying to talk to Optimus later.

    Transport Ship:

    "Yes Shockwave, everything is ready for lauch," Starscream replied.

    The Seeker glanced around one last time making sure everything was perfect. This mission was crucial for him. It presented him the perfect opportunity to gain favor in Megatron's eyes. He knew that that in itself was quite a difficult task. Starscream was confident that he could manage it though. All he had to do was make sure that everything went perfect with the Space Bridge testing. Something that he hoped wouldn't be too difficult. Of course there was always the chance that one of the incompetent idiots would mess something up.

    That was part of the reason he was making sure that everything else was running smoothly. He would be as involved with the Space Bridge testing as he could be. Well as long as it didn't threaten his own physical well-being that is.

    Enroute to Iacon Library

    The wind blew on Arcee as she drove in her alt mode to the Iacon Library. As she drove near it she wonder if if it was better for her to let Prime know what she was about to do here. However she figured that she wouldn't take long in finding out about this record book containing information about the different Eenrgon sources they can find. She transformed into her robot mode when she got to the enterence and waited for Cliffjumper to arrive.


    Kaon

    For his large size Blackout in his alt mode flew to the most dangerous parts of Kaon in a rather fast speed. Shockwave had mentioned to him about one of his old data containing some notes and research on the Space Bridge technologly. He was ordered by Megatron himself to go and retrieve that important item. Blackout couldn't believe it. Finally a chance to prove himself to Megatron! He landed in robot mode near the arena and waited for Brawl who was ordered to go with.

    :That guy better not do anything dumb to get us both killed." He thought with an annoyed look. I've heard stories of him doing that to some teammates.

    "Well, we've got ourselves a squad." Springer nodded in success.

    "Bee, Overhaul, Warpath, you guys get ready." He ordered.

    "If you need me, I'll be at the firing range."

    Before entering the door to the firing range, he looked one last time at Sideswipe and Hot Shot, "If you guys ever wanna change your mind, just say so." He entered the firing range and picked up his sword for some training.

    __________ *Faction Symbol Rotates*

    Transport Ship:

    "Good, Starscream. At last you have been of use to me." Shockwave turned his back on him and exited the ship for a short time before countdown.

    Shockwave always had a rough spot for Starscream. Something about him just felt shadey to him. His constant complaining and fearing death and injury did not give him any extra points. Shockwave could not help but feel like had he the chance, Starscream would stab Megatron in the back.

    Weapons Training:

    "Hey, I'll fight ya, Warpath," Overhaul said, happy to have a melee opponent. Warpath gave a hearty laughed and walked with him to the melee training ring.

    Hot Shot looked at Sideswipe and Bumblebee, "The news about Vector Prime is awesome. But do either of you really think we can still win the war? We're losing more ground every day."

    Transport Ship:

    Barricade leaned back in his seat impatiently. "Let's get this slaggin' show on the road!" He yelled callously.

    Thundercracker stood looking out of the cockpit...well, more of looking at his own reflection. "Man...I do look purdy in these new collas!" (Intentional Misspelling "Collas = colors")

    To his benefit, Thundercracker couldn't see Barricade facepalming.

    Iacon Library Entrance:

    "Don't be in such a rush, 'Cee. The dusty old books filled with digitally dusty data will still be there," Cliffjumper said over his comm with a laugh. It took him a few moments to reach the Autobot; once he did, he transformed to robot mode. "Let's see. I believe it is supposed to be in the historic section. Those tend to be in the back."

    He pointed down a hallway that ran through the center of the library and began walking. "How are you doing, Arcee? Haven't been able to talk in awhile."

    Kaon:

    "I've been waiting awhile for you, Blackout!" Brawl shouted as the helicoptor Decepticon landed. "What took you so long? If we're going to get that file in time for launch, we have to hurry."

    Brawl might be as dumb as a brick; but he wouldn't get Megatron angry, purposely.

    "I don't know Hot Shot," Bumblebee shrugged. "I hope we can still win. Maybe finding Vector Prime will be a turning point for us."

    He hoped that Optimus would tell him that he believed that they could still win when he finally got to talk to him. Bumblebee was sure that he would feel a lot better about their chances of winning, if their leader still believed they could.

    "Are you guys sure that you don't want to come with us?" he asked, changing the subject. "It might not be as bad as you think it will be."

    Transport Ship:

    Starscream held back a growl when he heard Shockwave's words. At last he had been of use to him!? At last!? What was that supposed to mean? That nothing he had done in the past had been useful? The Seeker had never liked Shockwave. The scientist could be too focused on logic for his liking. In Starscream's opinion, not everything could be driven by logic. After a while it could simply become predictable. But then he and Shockwave never really saw eye to eye.

    Iacon Records

    Optimus stared at the image of the crashed flagship.

    It was adorned with the symbol of the Primes and although the writing on the side had corroded, it was still legible.

    "Chronos". Vector Prime's starship.

    On the outside, Optimus was happy. If Vector Prime was still alive, they could win the war for Cybertron.

    But on the inside, Optimus was worried. If the Decepticons also had this information they could capture Vector Prime, the gaurdian of space and time himself.

    Who knows what secrets the Decepticons could syphon from him.

    His thoughts were interrupted by the door opening.

    Decepticon Archives

    "Read it 147 times, read it 312 times, read it 48 times..." Shatterpoint said to himself as he sifted through files.

    Unlike most Decepticons, he had too much free time on his hands. Whenever he got bored, he'd go to the archives and read up on Cybertron's history.

    "...117 times, 96 times, 189 times..."

    Each file was filled with megacycles of detailed information, pictures and footage of the Pre-War Cybertron.

    Shatterpoint had never seen Cybertron before the war, from what he saw in the files: it was beautiful.

    "Hello, what's this?" His eyes had caught a file that he hadn't read before.

    It was an addendum to the file on the Sea of Rust, it was only a few pictures taken by a Sky Spy decacycles ago.

    But one image caught his interest.
