I'm rather interested in what Brian has up his sleeves... My vote is for present purely because it'd be easier for me to make a character for that but if we go past then so be it. Research is always fun anyway!
hum... how about a dramatic opening on a toad ship to get used to things. we could be some kind of assault squad taking the ship for some purpose or another... a party which answers to a higher authority seems to be a good way to start running. gives the gm the ability to steer things if they feel the need but stays in context.
This I might be able to join. Free form, I'm tapped outta time for, hence why I have to drop that. Something moderated though... I should be able to squeeze out some time for.
The whole problem I'm having with freeform is that people like Norris and Psyko (and sometime Koosh) are able to post immeditly after each other. I, on the other hand, am stuck at my job for 8 hours, and busy with many other duties weekends and evenings. Not 24/7, but enough that sometimes a whole new page will be posted and I'll have to backtrack and read what happend and try to catch up.
(No offense to you three, just stating an observation)
Up or down. Left or Right. Good or evil. All is irrelavent when you look at the big picture. Some things can't be answered, but that don't mean you don't try and answer them.
A scenario ... well, shoot. I'm short of new ideas, but the vigilante/privateer suggestion I made earlier is presumably still on the table. Someone who fights the good fight, but plays by their own rules.
Excuse me while I calmly invent the nuclear banana.

A mercenary group, based on a frigate. A UAC group, based on a frigate. A marine group, primarily ground based. A merchant ship with a variety of character types. Any of the above set in the recent past. I thought it might be interesting to set it during the first Toad war or the rise of KOMPLEX.
Suggestions in by the end of this week, votes by the end of the next week.
All is not lost: the unconquerable will And study of revenge, immortal hate And courage never to submit or yield And what else is not overcome?
I'm still doing my research but i'd probably go for the merchant ship for the variety on offer. Being a toad could also be interesting... based on a fighter or similar. very restricted on character choice that way though.
