Corvette-117 - December 4, 2010 07:10 PM (GMT)
ONI Report: While the Spartan II and III programs were preparing the fight on the planet Reach against the Covenant and the UNSC prepared Earth for in case the Covenant would attack it next, a nearby star system had a habitale planet called GG-670 became a small time military outpost in, which was good because a new Spartan program was in the process. However, it closed down open communications with the rest of the remaining UNSC outposts in fear the Covenant might find them. However, within days after the Fall of Reach, a lone Covenant Assault Carrier arrived and without any orbital defenses, the Assault Carrier began to ferry troops onto the planet. With only the new Spartans and a few local militia, navy, and army personnel as the protectors of the planet, the Siege of GG-670 began…

Spartan Info
The Spartan II are consited of a Spartan II class started by the ONI in 2522. These Spartan II were made in secret and without the knowledge of Dr. Halsey. Like Halsey's Spartans, only about 40% of the class managed to become fit enough to be Spartans, but the remaining 60% who didn't were still fit enough to become ODST and marines.
Tom-313 (TheUltimateSR)
Brian-327 (Corvette-117)
Alexis-399 (she's a female just go with it) (clol7)

Most of the Spartan III are from a secret company called Zeta. These were also ONI selected Spartans and not even the founders of the original Spartan III progam knew about them. Instead of SPI armor, they're equiped with MJOLNIR armor just like the Spartan II, though they have the same augmentations as other Spartan III and as a result, all of the SIII survived the augmentation stage.

The Planet
There is only one continent that is the size of Australia and bizarrely is the same shape as Australia. Other than that, the rest of the moon is composed of ocean with ice caps at the South Pole. There are mysterious reports of recent findings of Forerunner structures that stick out of the sea, but these are rare and far to be of any use.

Training Grounds
This is where the Spartans were raised. Composed of various tents, obstacle courses, landing zones, local hospitals, and such. This is where the Spartans consider it home.

The City
The only city on the moon and was home to the non-military population. It is similar in architecture to New Alexandria on Reach. However, only the local militia and army personnel reside in the Covenant occupied city as the civilians were evacuated when the Battle of Reach began.

Mountain Chain
Formed solely by ancient volcanic activity, the Mountain Chain was once and still supports geothermal power plants that power the city. The Covenant still has yet to learn mountains are best places for recon and sniping missions.

ONI Base
Every UNSC colony has an ONI base, but this one is almost empty with its information either extracted and left or destroyed while the building stands as a fortress that offers a beacon of hope for the UNSC forces.

Along the mountain ranges lies the jungle, home to the native vegetation that is so dense that the only safe fighting methods there are is close quarters. The Covenant isn’t the only threat for some fauna here were brought here from Earth and other planets. The jungle is fed by a river that also leads to the city.

Open spaces makes room for open targets, even for vehicles. Yet the Covenant has set up AA batteries, Covenant Spires, Scarab patrols, and an LZ for the Covenant Assault Carrier that found the planet.

Prophet (only one is known to be on the moon and he’s the leader of the Covenant forces on the planet)

Varities of MJONLIR Mark IV and V armor. (you may use this chart to help make your appearance)

-Play as a Spartan wearing MJOLNIR armor
-No Godmodding
-No Power Playing unless it's something minor
-No killing other characters off without permission
-Be realistic like no finding weapons all over the place or your guy killing every living thing in some absurd way (like taking out a thousand wraiths by a pistol), no absurd backgrounds, appearances, etc.
-To help avoid confusion as of who is what, players must identify whether their Spartans are II or III.
-NPC ally characters like ODST, Army Troopers, Marines are okay as long, but each person can have no more than 3 NPC Spartans

Corvette-117 - December 4, 2010 11:38 PM (GMT)
Good, I like it though I think I should add the rule that players must identify which Spartan each character is.

Clol7 - December 5, 2010 12:09 AM (GMT)
I should edit that then.
Done. How's that?

Corvette-117 - December 5, 2010 12:15 AM (GMT)
That's good. Now at least just one more person and I'll make the official rpg thread.

Corvette-117 - December 5, 2010 04:12 AM (GMT)
Good, except the UA/FC. Those are just attachments to helmets so unless you forgot to add the helmet in addition to the attachments, please pick a helmet.

Corvette-117 - December 5, 2010 01:31 PM (GMT)
Dude, that is so awesome! Think you can pm me those pictures that are a tad bit bigger?

Also, if you don't own Vanity, how did you get it or did you mean you borrowed Bungie's Vanity?

Clol7 - December 5, 2010 07:00 PM (GMT)
Don't know but I'll try to get them bigger, I may have to use e-mail instead.

Vanity is a free program. It is available here.

130MB download.

EDIT: So Sarcasm, since you ninja-edited your post, is your Spartan in Beta or Zeta company?

Also, I shall declare clol7 and ToN can be the ones in charge of getting the Spartan images as I tried downloading the Vanity program and it didn't go so well on my computer.

Sarcasm - December 5, 2010 11:38 PM (GMT)

I actually didn't intend that, I just hit the B key on accident.

Corvette-117 - December 5, 2010 11:39 PM (GMT)
Oh okay, you're free to post.

Do you have NET Framework 3.0?

EDIT: Whew, my last post was the longest I ever did, for anything.

Corvette-117 - December 6, 2010 01:04 AM (GMT)
Tried downloading that too and it got an error message. I would download it on my school computer, but since I'll only have it for a few months, why even bother.

Sarcasm - December 6, 2010 01:05 AM (GMT)
I can't download it from this computer, either. It's not all that important, though.

Like this?

Sarcasm - December 7, 2010 12:15 AM (GMT)
Yeah, that's great!

Clol7 - December 7, 2010 12:19 AM (GMT)
Can you get Elijah to look at my head? It kind of hurts...

Class: Spartan 3

Bio: Lyra specializes in paradropping in, killing some Covenant in close-quarters combat, plant some explosives, and leaving. It was during one of these jumps that she lost her arm to a Fuel Rod Shade Turret. This has done nothing to take out her amicable good nature and done lots to increase her hatred of the Covenant. She holds great respect for the ODSTs, and has jumped with them on multiple occasions.

Error: Vanity does not support helmet attachments, yet.
Error: Vanity does not support female Spartans, yet.
Error: Vanity does not support missing limbs, and do not plan to.

Corvette-117 - December 7, 2010 01:36 AM (GMT)
Missing limbs! Like how Kat lost her arm? But wait, how can she use a shotgun with only one arm since a shotgun requires two; one to pull the trigger and the other to pump it.

Clol7 - December 7, 2010 01:57 AM (GMT)
Didn't you ever see Terminator?

Sarcasm - December 7, 2010 02:08 AM (GMT)

I assume she has a prosthetic....

Tails of Nine - December 7, 2010 02:22 AM (GMT)
Just a few questions.

1. Is the covenant presence known all around at this point? Or have they just arrived?
2. Are we going to have an AI here? If so will it be Smart or Dumb?

A Covenant Assault Carrier is over the plains, but since there was no major orbital protection, only a few such as some high ranking ONI officials, Brian-327, some high ranking Army and Navy Officials, and two marines who reported seeing a Elite patrol and they're held up in the ONI building. At least not yet.

@clol7: No I have not seen Terminator.

Quite soon, hopefully a day (rpg wise) after Brian's recon mission.
