It may seem like a lot, but it really isn't. Rule Two: Grammer 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. Rule Five: DO NOT POST if you are not on the player list. That's the way we keep order in the RPG. If people were to let in people on the fly this RPG could get really messy, really fast. Just look for a topic that says "More Than Meets The Eye Recruitment #2" which will be appearing within the next two weeks. Thanks for understanding. I'll repeat, please do not post in the RPG topic if your not a member of it, it disrupts the play flow, send me a PM if you are interested, and I'll immediatly reserve a place in the next recruitment for you. Thank You. The Plot: Prologue: In the year 2009, a large starship called the Nemesis crash landed on Mars. It contained several evil robots, the Decepticons. They had meant to land on Earth but their engines failed. They created a space bridge and traveled to Earth, attacking power plants, and stole energy. Only a day later, a small shuttle carrying a small squad of Autobots landed and they fought back the Decepticons for now, though who knows how long they'll stay away. The Autobots are consdiered heroes, and a combined human and Autobot taskforce called N.E.S.T. has been set up. The Autobots have also made friends with the town in which they saved and are currently located in. It is now 2010, and the Decepticons are gearing up for war, a war that Earth is not prepared for. Episode 1 Summary (Posts #2 through #159): The Decepticons performed a scouting mission, but the Autobots found out and chased them out of the town, capturing Drift in the process. Drift was able to escape from the Decepticons, along with doing some damage to Barricade and Megatron. At the same time, a Transformer named Lockdown appeared and was chased by the police until he was cornered by three police cars. The police attempted to arrest him when they realised that he was Transformer, and not a friendly one as he destroyed one of the police cars, and badly injured one of the higher ups, an attractive 27 year-old named Laura Walker, the older sister of Matt Walker, one of the soldiers who worked with the NEST Alliance. Lockdown then proceeded to be chased by an Autobot named Jetfire, and through the course of their fight, and bomb was dropped, blowing up a large part of the city. Lockdown has dissappeared however, and now the Autobots have been blamed for the attacks. The United States army came to arrest the Autobots, but with help from their new teenage allies, Sara, Chad, Paul, and Aaron, along with a distraction by Matt, the Autobots escaped. The Autobots base camp is now in a clearing in the middle of a large forest near the city. Matt Walker has been taken into custody by the army, and freeing him is near the top of the Autobot priority list as is finding Lockdown. The Decepticons on the other hand are nearing the time to begin a series of global strikes, beginning with attack San Deigo just in time for the SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con), when the city is at it's peak population level. Episode 2 Summary (Posts #171 through #307): An autobot shuttle crash landed, and was investigated by the U.S. Navy and members of the Autobot Car Team. Combined efforts of the Car Team and the shuttle team fought back an attack by the Decepticons on San Diego. The Decepticons repeatedly blew up parts of the city, and the Autobots were barely able to keep them back. And that was when the U.S. Army came. They had jets, tanks, helicoptors, hummers, humvees, jeeps, guns, soldiers, everything. They attacked both the Autobots and the Decepticons, blowing them up good. The Autobots and Decepticons began to retreat, but not before Optimus and Megatron both got captured by the Army. The Autobots regrouped, and after repairing themselves, are preparing to seperate into four groups to try and clear their names, and save the world, Optimus and Matt. The Decepticons on the other hand have reactivated 20 soldiers. That could hurt a bit! The Setting: This is based off of Classics/Updated G1, with some influences from the movies and Unicron Trilogy. Other Notes: You guys are allowed to make some human characters, just post a bit about them, before using them. They are in California. Go!
