The Human Race has always been strong. They have always been the type to go to hell and back. Commander Jacob Keyes operated a UNSC ship and personally destroyed 4 Covenant Cruisers. For this he is seen as a hero. Despite his skill in the ship, he does not notice a Covenant Beacon attached to the ship which the Covenant use to track the ship back to the UNSC's Training Planet... Reach. The Covenant followed the Beacon back to Reach and it is there, that the battle began. The Covenant's victory was swift and easy, moving over Reach like a knife through butter, killing off humanity one by one. Though the Human Race fought back, they were not enough. Before long, The UNSC abandon Reach. The Human Covenant War on Reach has been lost. However, not all hope has been abandoned with it... Soon after the departure of the UNSC Ship "The Pillar of Autumn", another UNSC Ship comes into view. The ship is named... "Forever Night".

The Ship's Operator, a Lieutenant Major Cross, orders the crew to move into the planet's atmosphere, near the surface. They scanned for survivors. His plan was simple... Locate all surviving UNSC Soldiers and give them a choice. Die alone on the abandoned Planet or Join his crew and become a member of the resistance. The Rogue Ship, "Forever Night" spends only little time inside the Planet's atmospheres, gathering all abandoned personnel for his own personal use. After scrolling over the small section of the planet, the ship redirects its course and pushes back up from the atmosphere, moving back into space to formulate a "New plan".



~Rules~
1. No Godmodding
2. No "All Powerful Spartans"
3. Disobeying a Command from Lt. Major Cross multiple times can get your character dumped in the atmosphere. You can keep playing... If you survive.
4. This is a Military Type tactic. You have increased natural abilities but no Super-Type abilities. That means no telekinesis, no teleportation, etc.

-ODST: A special class Marine soldier. They are 10x better in all aspects than a Marine would be. They lack in comparison to a Spartan however.
-Ship Crew: They never leave the ship aside from death. Typically they assist the Spartan's for assistance with their equipment. The basic residents of the ship.

Matthias Fenris
Name: Soran- Spartan 060.

Gender: male.

Age: unknown.

Rank: Spartan 060 held the rank of lieutenant grade 2 during his operational time under the UNSC.

Special traits: Spartan 060 is a Spartan II, with a Mjolnir mk VI powered armor, E.V.A. permutation suited for combat in vacuum as well as in an atmosphere. being a Spartan II he has greater strength, speed and (arguably) training than the Spartan III's. his armor and bio-augmentation also allow him to carry and utilize a shipboard A.I. within his armor. his physical size is also much more imposing than the Spartan III's standing over a foot taller than them. his body was also cybernetically and genetically augmented during his Spartan training.

Battlefield roles: 060 excels at ship to ship boarding assaults, acting a shock trooper to break through the toughest fighting. he can operate very well boarding ships via airlocks, or even by planting charges on ship hulls themselves from the vacuum of space. as such, close and intense firefights are his strongest area of expertise. while on the ground, 060 takes advantage of his extra strength and power to provide heavy support for his team. and in keeping with this fashion, he provides strong anti-armour/ anti-vehicle support.

Preferred weaponry: 060's tactical load out differ depending on the mission given to him, but generally he is seem most commonly with a Spartan laser on his back, an MBA5 assault rifle with extended 60 round magazines in his hands, and a magnum semi-auto pistol on one hip, with 2 to 3 grenades on the other. he also likes to keep a small supply of explosive charges around his waist for breaching duties. extra ammo mags can be found on tactical magnetic points of his armor, and sometimes within additional pouches strapped onto his chest and waist.

Psyche evaluation: Spartan- Soran 060 is, from a military standpoint, an outstanding soldier with a positive preference for battle unlike other soldiers. he is seen as level headed, and as having a gift for battlefield tactics on the fly. and very skilled at bringing down hard targets. from a Spartan standpoint, Soran is outgoing and headstrong, with a preference for close zero G combat and hard target demolitions. this often results in soran tinkering around with existing weapons and ordinance in an effort to create an explosive result that is often unnecessarily large, but very efficient in resources and application. his affinity for blowing up hard targets has a close second in Soran; ship assault. he positively excels in narrow corridor fighting and using walls and angles to his advantage. this coupled with the fact that his suit is air sealed, often results in him blowing new airlocks into the corridors of ships to "vent" his opposition into the vacuum of space. were it not for he fact that Soran is focused on achieving mission goals and is happy blowing up only the enemy military, the UNSC would have ad a very large problem on their hands with him.

Notes: spartan Soran 060 "sixty" to his former squadmates, was first encountered by Lt. Major Cross' crew amungst the debris of a covenant carrier in high orbit over reach. when Lt Major Cross and his crew found soran, the spartan was found adrift in space, in the midst of a massive field of debris that could only come from a carier sized ship. the entire field was awash in high levels of radiation, and sorans oxygen supply was nearly spent. this left the super solider unconcious while drifting in the vacuum. once pulled into the ships medical bay, they realised soran's armor suffered massive concussive force trauma, his entire shielding drained from explosive force and high dose radiation exposure consistant with covenant technology. and some of the armors systems were offline as well. there was nothing they couldnt repair in time, and once they ran a scan of his systems they found yet another surprise. as it turned out, soran had within his armor a "smart" A.I. with him that was unable to communicate to the crew due to damaged speakers in the armor. it may take the crew a few hours to safely transpot the A.I. to the ships systems, and to revive their newly aquird spartan II. he has lost all of his former friends, as well as his home. only time will tell how he reacts once he wakes up from the medical bay.

Appearance; (out of armor) Soran -060 is a very tall, well muscled man with sharp features to his jaw line. short stubbled facial hair over his jaw and chin, electric blue eyes, and extremely pale skin (due to being in his armor constantly) his hair color is very dark brown and cut short. out of his armor his body seems to be covered in scars, and his face is peticularly crossed diagonally over his nose and cheek with a long sence closed gash.

I'm interested in playing a non-standard character, Pheo. Would that be possible?

Matthias Fenris
sigh... i hate conformity...

Type: Spartan II

Name / Service Tag: Soran -080

Company: Bravo

Gender: Male

Age: 34

Race: Middle eastern origin, exact country classified

Primary Weapon: Spartan laser

Secondary Weapon: MBA4 assault rifle

Job Type: Heavy Support Expert, Heavy Shock Trooper

Personal Abilities: Explosives Expert

Bio, Extra Information: Soran 060 was part of the original batch of spartan II's, and is an expert at eliminating hard targets. He consiters any enemy vehicle or stronghold a hard target, from the smallest of mongooses to the heaviest super carriers in space. And suffice to say, Soran excells at finding ways to crack them all open. Some other Spartan II's who have worked with him on missions get a feeling of unease working along side Soran, due to his zeal for defeating his percieved enemies. While he has never compromised a mission before, it has led to an avoidance of him by many other spartans.
Before Soran could begin his next mission, the covenant made landfall and assaulted Reach. He and a team of specialists were given a top priority mission in low obit involving a covenant carrier. Sorans team were soon lost to radio contact, and not long afterwards, the entire covenant carriers engines overloaded and detonated. No survivors were expected, and no radio contact could be made with Soran or his team. He was officially listed by the UNSC as MIA soon after the battles of reach ended.
Alone and drifting through space, Sorans unconcious body drifted through the field of debris and radiation from the destroyed covenant ship. His locator beacon, smothered by the high radiation interfearance was not able to draw the attention of the UNSC ships as they fled the dying planet, but as the radiation spread out and drifted from him, it caught the attention of the pilot operating one last stray pelican in orbit. The small transport was drifitng relatively close enough to soran to pick up on his signal, and soon it was able to position itself enough to open the back passenger hatch. there was only one other solider inside, a single ODST equipped with full vacuum suit. the trooper pulled Sorans body inside with them, closed the hatch and activated their own locator beacons.
Shortly afterwards, the pelican pilot picked up the readings of a human ship appearing in the area, and after a brief exchange of signals, they found themselves docking into the ships transport bays. The ships crews rushed Soran to the medical bay and proceeded to make sure the Spartan was alive. after making sure he was simply unconcious and may be suffering a concussion, they made another discovery. Spartan 060 had an A.I. within his armour. the blast which left Soran knocked cold in the void had seemingly taken its vocal programs offline, and they needed to be repaired. the details of the exact mission, and the reasons for this Spartan to have an A.I. to begin with are something that the captain of the ship would be sure to want to find out.

Appearance: Spartan 060 was found wearing Mjolnir Mk VI E.V.A. powered armor. ( http://www.bungie.net/images/News/InlineImages2007/BetaBeyond/Renders/Halo3_EVA_Spartan-steel-01.jpg ) this armor setup was prefered by him for space operations, giving him the highest degree of visibility. and protection against his suit being breached. it offers extra shoulder, arm, chest, and back armor, with a full face visor lacking hardened defensive armor to protect the visor.
His physical appearance suggests that of a hardened veteran of countless battles. his skin is pale and jagged with scars all over his body and face from previous missions. his eyes shine an electric blue that stares through people when he speaks, seemingly not to focus on them all. his hair is kept a dark black stubble atop his head, and jawline. and his facial structure marks a sharpness to it that some might call handsome, were it not for the crisscross collection of scars.

Matthias Fenris
good enough?

Phoenix3068
lol, you didn't have to get rid of everything else you just had to at least have the stuff I said in it.

Anyways...

Soran-060 Approved.

Phoenix3068
By the way this pretty much goes without saying but this RP will include no flaming or bashing, no arguments, and all discussion on the RP itself will take place ONLY in this thread. I don't want to see people asking questions about it in the RP thread itself.

Phoenix3068
<.< okay then, well tell Xan to post his Character. I did see his post, but I need to see an example.

XanatosForever
I plan on having two characters, Pheo. One standard (an ODST which I will be posting soon), and one non-standard. I'll see how I can make it fit with the current character sheet.


Also, because it's kind of habit with me now: http://xat.com/The_SSBB_Universe

And yes, I'm online right now. stick out tongue

Well you can make a Spartan-III but unless you have good enough conditions such as full knowledge on the Halo series you can't make a Spartan-II sense I want to keep those as limited as I can.

As far as being a pilot goes, you can pilot really any UNSC Vehicles or hijacking Covenant vehicles. Sense we are on the ship "Forever Night" you would be one sent out in another Flight-type vehicle to protect the ship during a combat situation.

i think you can be a dropship pilot from the forever night,s crew, or you can be the pilot that picked up my char with xans ODST in the pelican.. either way is good, i suppose. but what kind of pilot would you be? combat? flying a longsword or a sabre intercepter ship? or a dropship pilot that flies through hell to drop off and pick up and resupply the troops?

basically whatever offers the most challenge to my guy, so probably the dropship flying through hell thing, or just being a team pilot, flying whatever the hell the job called for

and as for my knowledge of the Halo verse, i've beaten halo a few times and (surprisingly) taught all my friends who were far bigger halo nuts than me a huuuuge glitch in the level where you go through the swamp that leads toyou fighting the covenant for the first time, haven't played all of halo 2 (but read the plot summary on a wiki somewhere) beat halo 3 a few times (mostly for achievements and the joy of going apeshit melee badass on brutes who use a bubble shield) played through ODST a couple times and have yet to touch Wars or Reach (dont like console RTS games, would have orgasmed over it had it been on the pc, and Reach i can only find the legendary edition, seriously, its ****ing everywhere where i live, and i dont have 149 dollars to drop on the game, hell i only bought the 100 dollar version of ODST cause it came with a controller, and thats like paying 1/4 price for one of the two things in the box) but i've read up on alot of halo stuff and also watched legends, read the graphic novel, watched the live action ODST anddddddd seriously ****ing want them to do something that picks up where halo 3 ended, whether a movie, game, graphic ****ing novel, hell even a radio drama

Matthias Fenris
heh.. sounds like you have a good grasp of the game.. halo wars happens before the events of reach, and only really matters when you think of it while reading ghosts of onyx. halo two happens after reach, and is therefore in the future of this rp.. SO! the only stories and games that matter to the plot are reach, and maybe first strike... everything else just backs you up on lore, weapons, ships, and protocol..

but halo wars, despite being a console rts, was petty interesting in seeing just what happened all over the outer colonies.. ive read all the books.. played all the games. (still need to finish the reach campaign, but im hving too much fun on matchmaking) the only thing im lacking is the halo legends dvd... which i saw a clip of via preorder and having the new halo reach xbox, and i gotta say... i hated it... but eh..

(>^^)>
some were good, some were garbage, i did not like the one that made the elites feudal freakin japanese samurai

1. I'll school both of you in Reach.

2. Come on, I know this is a discussion thread for it as well but it's meant to be about the RP not about the game, let's at least get all the basic's in order before we start off on random stuff. I want to start the RP before December lol.

(>^^)>
sorry i got a little over excited i guess...

Matthias Fenris
uhh... O_o.. the sangeili totally live their lives very similar to samurai.. its in the books. and the comics... kind of what makes them badass..

and xan is lagging bad on the whole putting up his char sheets thingy.. and! we culd use a resident dropship pilot... some of those bad boys are laded with guns and missiles of their own.. could lay down some nice cover fire while dropping off and picking up... aaaaand now im thinking of starship troopers, when dizzy gets shanked and they all meet up on the dropship... aw..

Well excuse me for taking pride in my own creations. I'm suffering minor writer's block, but I should have both characters up by the weekend.

it seriously bothers me that they do, there is extremely low chance of them having a couture that really resembles one of ours at all, let alone is exactly what it's ideally thought it was

and halo in general was heavily influenced by Starship Troopers, the powered exo-skeleton for instance is very similar to the spartan armour, even looking almost exactly the same in the tv show, which came out before the planning of halo

halo was influenced by EVERY space marine type thing before... they ll go back and back and back until 40k, or whatever...halo even takes from starcraft... just look at the elites hands and the protoss hands... and the flood? zerg. or starship troopers bugs, or the tyranids, or the xenomorphs...

and theirculture isnt exactly like samurai, is just closely similar... there are key differences.. blood and honor are the same thing.. if your blood is spilt, you lose honor. if you spill anothers blood, you gain honor. teir leadersare even called kai-dons... and they're so purely a military species, its insane. what other earth type culture can you attribute them to be similar to?

oh, and pheonix... if you're ever online on reach, bring it on.. ill make you look like raditz..

actualy bushido was created on 1905, same dude hpribly screwed up when writing a book and yhe emporers went with it cause hey, they now have soldiers who fly planes into shit for them and just wont surrender

which is exactly like the elites. they dont surrender. they fight down to the last man.. i dont see whats so bad about it. its all about honor and glory in battle.

(>^^)>
whats bad about it is that instead of coming up with a more likely culture, thats unique or different from something earthly and primate, they cloned almost exactly a distinct earth style and culture

Matthias Fenris
i wouldnt call it a clone.. theres alot of key differances.. like their polotics, religion, breeding rituals, society views, their concept of what shame is, and quite few other things. read the rest of the books, dude. its only influenced by japanese samurai, not a total clone. and lets be honest here.. there are no original ideas in the world anymore.. im guessing you're basing this alot more on the halo legends dvd, right? ive only seen a few clips from it, but i can tell you that it is very non cannon.. its people taking the ideas and stries and recreating it for animation to suit their perticular style. so you shouldnt hold TOO much stock in that.

i dont think theres any game or story where aliens or creatures culture is different from a type of human culture that exists or alrady as existed. maybe.... MAYBE lovecraft... but thats all im coming up with...

(>^^)>
stick out tongue i was talking about the dvd, not them in general, but you raised another point, one that annoys me every damn time i hear it "there are no original ideas anymore" "you cant have an original idea anymore" you most absolutely can, just nobody tries anymore,
edit; imagine it like colours, there are colours humans cannot see, but because we cannot not see it we also cant imagine what that colour will look like

also, spartan-IIIs, would any of them be earth orphans? if not could i get a little list of planets they could be from?

Type: ODST

Name / Service Tag: Richard-R565

Company: Bravo

Gender: Male

Age: 30

Race: American

Primary Weapon: M41 Surface-to-Surface Rocket Launcher

Secondary Weapon: M6D Magnum Sidearm

Job Type: Demolitions

Personal Abilities: Superior Accuracy

Bio, Extra Information: Richard was born in the United States of America. His early life was filled with deliquent activity and pyrotechnics. He enlisted with the UNSC at the first opportunity, where his love of large explosions was put to good use. He received top scores for marksmanship with UNSC standard sidearms, showing special proficiency with the M6 series, and of them the M6D. He was also shown to have a knack at using heavy ordnance effectively against infantry, and favored the Surface-to-Surface Anti-Vehicle/Assault rockets. He also seemed to have a talent for utilizing the TR/9 Antipersonnel Mine to maximum combat effectiveness.

In short time, he found himself among the top of the Marine dogpile, the Orbital Drop Shock Troopers. He saw many of his fellow Helljumpers perish, either from the very likely chance of a failed jump, or brought low by the covenant hordes they faced. Over time his destructive urges waned, giving way to smoldering determination in the line of fire. He'd made a small name for himself during the invasion of Reach, when he'd managed to destroy an incoming Phantom from high altitude with two superbly placed, manually aimed rocket hits. It gave his unit an opportunity to pull out of the hot zone before they were overwhelmed by Covenant reinforcements.

Richard was one of the last troops to pull out of Reach before its annihilation by Covenant forces. Together with the pilot of the Pelican, they were able to keep out of notice until the Covenenant had begun pursuit of the UNSC Pillar of Autumn. It was some time after that the pilot noticed a beacon among the wreckage of one of the destroyed Covenant carriers. The pilot flew in, and Richard stepped out, pulling in what looked to be a Spartan. The pilot activated the Pelican's own beacon, and they were eventually picked up by the Forever Night.

Appearance: With his specialty in demolitions, Richard favors the Close Quarters Battle variant of the standard ODST Battle Dress Uniform, making good use of defensive permutations. The optics device allows him to both accurately relay data to friendly units, and has served a surprisingly effective baiting tool to lure enemies. He also carries a low weight rucksack, finding the magnetic attachment useful in carrying his beloved rockets, while the sack itself is a perfect storage unit for ammunition.

When going civvy, Richard tends to let his shoulder length black hair hang loose, framing his strong jawline and sharp cheekbones. He has green eyes that he likes to use to scan for good mine placements. He has an large frame, though is on the tall side measuring at 6'2", making his appearance not very outlandish. His muscles show the fatigue of near constant use, and his skin sports a number of scars, but he is not horrendously disfigured. When not in dress, he tends to wear short sleeved tops with denim jeans.

Type: Crew (Special)

Name / Service Tag: Xain-X41N

Company: Alpha

Gender: "Male"

Age: 5

Race: N/A

Primary Weapon: Spartan 080

Secondary Weapon: UNSC Forever Night

Job Type: Support

Personal Abilities: Tactical [email protected]^&error1001101101

Bio, Extra Information: Xain is a "smart" A.I. formed from the mind of a child genius born to a Corporal Grade 1 Martin Reed. During an surprise assault on human colonies by the Covenant, Corporal Reed gave his life to get the colonists onto one of the few shuttles launching off-world before the glassing, his family among them. He was posthumously promoted to Sergeant and awarded the Medal of Honor. The shuttle took fire during its escape, and was found dead in the water sometime after Covenant forces had moved on.

Life support had failed at some point before the shuttle was recovered, because only the pilot and Reed's son were found alive. They were recovered and placed in critical care. It seemed the pilot would survive, but young Reed's body couldn't handle the shock he had received. To the medical team's surprise, he instructed them on the spot through the Cognitive Impression Modeling process. After AI was "born" it explained to the horrified medical team that the child suffered from a rare, incurable disease that attacked the brain near death, and would have ravaged his intelligence, leaving it unusable postmortem.

Designating himself "Xain," the AI remained with the crew until they returned to UNSC space, where UNCS Command quickly processed and transferred him to the Spartan II project. He found himself paired with Spartan 080, and the two made a remarkably good team, with Xain's tactical foresight allowing the Spartan to find himself at the right place at the right time to be the most combat efficient. Their latest mission had problems, attempting to bring down a Covenant carrier over Reach, but even with the difficulties, Xain was able to get Spartan 080 where he needed to be. Ironically, Xain found himself once again suffering during an escape attempted, then the released explosion sent a concentrated electromagnetic wave through Spartan 080's MJOLNIR armor, causing it to lock-up and damaging the AI's vocal programming, though if more extensive damage has occurred remains to be seen.

Appearance: Xain favors a fantastical avatar, taking examples from various lore. His standard appearance is of a young man in his early twenties, donned in casual short sleeved shirt and slacks, with a cloak attached at his neck. He hair just past shoulder length, and his eyes lack any appearance of iris or pupil. He has a pair of feathered wings to complete the avatar, giving a very unusual mix of modern and fantasy, likely a result of the mind he was born from.

FINALLY! and yeah, he can be an orphan from earth. the III's were mostly made up of orphaned recruits anyways. dont think it matters what planet their from. the biggest ones would be reach and harvest, though. and at the same time...

if we could never see those colors, whats to give our minds the image in out head of what possible new color combination to create? it would be like the people who claim magenta or maroon as a color... its red... its all red... light red? dark red? still red.

Matthias Fenris
so... im guessig phoeix is waiting for everyones profile before we start this? (oh and by the way.. totally almost beat the reach campaign on heroic.. gunna have a big party pretty soon to go at it on legendary with crazy skulls on soon.. yay for dying alot!)

XanatosForever
I guess. I'm just hoping she'll accept both my characters.

Matthias Fenris
i dont see why she wouldnt.. frankly, im surprised she aproved a spartan II... me thinks she had a soft spot for jorge.. <.<..

XanatosForever
...What?

Matthias Fenris
hes a spartan II thats part of the team of spartan III's in the halo reach campaign... awesome guy.. totally died...

Phoenix3068
I'm about to read Xan's characters, I've been gone for a week lol, "Fall Break, yay!"

and yes I have an Uber soft spot for Jorge.

As far as your Halo Reach Legendary Skull Campaign goes I'll join Matt.

Yes I'm waiting for at least 5 of the 6 people who signed up for it to join. If Marie ever got on -.- lol.

Finally, yes most Spartan-III are orphans. Unlike the Spartan-II's they weren't kidnapped from home but rather orphaned due to the war, afterwards they joined the Elite rankings of the Spartan-III Project. YAY FOR POOR PUBLIC MANAGEMENT!

Matthias Fenris
sweetness, so far its just me and my bud miles... could also use a fourth... know anyone hardxcore? and is marie the only one we're waiting on now?

Phoenix3068
*claps* ^^ I like them Xan, both.

Richard seems like a modern badass though I can't really get through with his tone, I guess because that part wasn't really described. Anyways, I give this an "Approved" marking on it! Hehe.

As far as XainX41N...
I can tell that you worked a bit on this but you said 080 O.o did I view it wrong, which Spartan is 080? >.< your making me go back to read. Anyways, its good enough, I guess I see this one as being somewhat like Serena from Halo War's XD

... *stamps both with an "Approved!" seal*

Phoenix3068
No she's not, go look back at the list. We have at least 6 people on there, though some of them are inactive right now so we might have to wait a while but I'm not giving up! >:]

Matthias Fenris
he means 060... soran...

Phoenix3068
thought so XD I didn't know if you changed your character's tag without my knowledge >.>

Matthias Fenris
O_o... and if i do?

Phoenix3068
then you have to announce it >.> other wise... YOU GET THE HORNS! *an elite with an energy sword jumps Matt* lol nah, okay so we only have 3 active people right now including myself?

Phoenix3068
Double Post :3 anyways, scratch that we still have the (>^^)> guy so that's 4 including myself. 2 more and I'll start it, we should have those 2 who are already playing it though D: where are they!?

Matthias Fenris
*pulls a sgt forge and neck shanks it to death* blarg! ya honk bag! *kicks the elites dead body* O_o...does that count as a bulltrue medal?

Matthias Fenris
no idea... and i call that guy kirby...just because it looks like it...

Phoenix3068
Guess so.

(>^^)>
i prefer either, God, man formerly known as thebigeh, almightly symbols!, Great One, or Fred

Phoenix3068
Will you join this RP too Mr. Fred? :3

(>^^)>
yes, been working on the characters...and jesus you respond quick o.O

Phoenix3068
again I know I do >.> but still, I'll wait to approve characters big grin After everyone else is done I'll post my characters ! ^^

I don't suppose we can 138 to 338 can we ^^; most Bravo tend to have numbers in the 2 - 300 radius (actually I think only above 300 lol) >.> I have yet to understand the numbers for them.

(>^^)>
meh i dont care, i would have made it 1138, but too many digits

Phoenix3068
Spartan-1337! AT YOUR SERVICE! XD

Anywho, *pulls out my stamper and stamps upon the stampee mark*

"APPROVED!"

wasnt 1337 in the halo legends?

Phoenix3068
Yes he was lmao

XanatosForever
Glad to see my characters got through, sorry about the mix up with the spartan numbers.

Phoenix3068
lol it's nothing Xan, I'm glad to have you in my RP :] perhaps you can create some crazy adventures for the Spartan's!

http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss198/mr_winkles/character_concept_mh_by_hokunin.jpg outside of armour totally forgot his special abilities, basically he can think really fast and do calcuations in his head really efficiently and quick, this helps his eye from knowing trajectories when he has to calculate a lot of factors

and if we are having armour powers, totally using hologram

Phoenix3068
^^ wow, 100 points to Kirby for his amazing abilities and use of pictures (unlike someone *cough cough* Matt) *again stamps* Approved!

Matthias Fenris
eh.. im not used to rp where you can be lazy by adding pictures to your chars... *shrugs* i used to have to discribe the thought in my head in detail...

XanatosForever
Aww, c'mon Pheo. You mean to tell me you prefer pictures over the elegant details that come from the minds of people like Psy and myself?

Edit: Sniped by Psy. *respawn in 5*

Matthias Fenris
HAH! ninja! w00t!

Phoenix3068
lol no, actually I prefer Picture/Detail. I want you guys to work twice as hard, give a visual image and a mental image. that shows dedication ^^

XanatosForever
The problem with that is the fact that, unless I draw it myself, I'll never find a picture to accurately represent my character...well, for the most part. Given this series has such established mythos, I might be able to find something.

Edit: New page! http://xat.com/The_SSBB_Universe

Matthias Fenris
uhh.. it doesnt show dedication... it shows you searched for a pic, then created a discrip to discribe the picture you found... else the two would contradict one another..

Phoenix3068
not if your dedicated enough to create a kick ass Spartan on Halo and then use a screen shot of your own spartan! big grin anyways, you don't need a picture, but you should have a description. If you don't have a pic, have a descrip. If you don't have a descrip. have a pic.

Matthias Fenris
yeah.. and i was fairly sure i did both, didnt i?

Phoenix3068
eh

Matthias Fenris
...kay. i forget... did YOU pu up a spartan?

(>^^)>
Originally posted by Matthias Fenris

i tend to find pictures, literally taking days or hours, then often use photoshop to change it, seriouly, i have galleries of that shit, not lazy, and i would have taken a screen shot if i had Reach two days ago...just bought it today
edit: to add to the awesomeness of previously buying a new pre-order copy of farcry 2 8 months (atleast) after release, this copy of reach is a launch day/pre-order, i got the recon armour

Matthias Fenris
yeah, im not really stoked on recon.. or the multi-threat armour... theres already an armor with the same plates and grenade belt in the game if you dont pre-order... and if all it takes to get recon is a pre-order, it isnt special anymore.. like the heads on fire... you see that alot. the people paid 150 bucks for it.. but its not special anymore.. now its all about the inclement weather and haunted helmet, dude.. O_o..

also.. even when recon was hard to get, i never liked how it looked...

(>^^)>
not saying its special, just that i got it over a month after your not supposed to get it, without spendin 150 dollars
and wow, kat got sniped

Matthias Fenris
i know.. rather cheaply, too... where the hell were her shields? ghay...

Phoenix3068
1) No I haven't created my Spartan yet, I wanted to wait until other's joined. I'll post mine after we get those last 2 people in here ><
2) Yes, she was sniped. By a Needle Rifle no less. She's like a grunt = Bam, HEADSHOT!
3) Everyone but Jorge dies cheaply.
4) If you want my opinion, you should describe your character out of armor and then use a picture to show them in armor.
5) Do you like Waffles?

Matthias Fenris
i did put in a discrip of him out of his armor.. and emile dies like a badass... sgt forge style... but he shoulda watched his motion sensor.. and yeah, but pancakes are better..

Phoenix3068
He died because he failed to shoot down the phantom with the gun and then forgot to check his motion sensor 0.o died like a nub.

(>^^)>
death due to bad situation awareness, and ive noticed this game is kinda like a giant pissing contest, the humans do this crazy shit to destroy a pylon, bam! that ship gets wrecked in one hit, they then do a crazy awesome scheme to destroy the massive ship in which a spartan dies, like dozens more show up, immediately

Phoenix3068
Jorge died like a hero.

(>^^)>
he did, but it was immediately invalidated

Phoenix3068
yep

XanatosForever
By the way, this place does have spoiler tags. Y'know, for us poor folk who can't afford to enjoy the experience...

(>^^)>
Originally posted by Phoenix3068

actually, now that i've beaten it, i'd say noble-6's death was the most badass, jorge's was the most heroic, (although invalidated immediately) kat's was weak, but in the nature of war, carter took out a ****ing scarab which i would have hated to have to take out, and emille had a good "f*ck you" with it, however, jun's death, now that was freakin bad ass
also, how does one take a screenshot???? my spartan's appearence will not upload onto the bungie site like it's supposed to :/
edit: *faceplams* nevermind, just remembered how to do it

Matthias Fenris
hey pheo... post your char already...

(>^^)>
pheo?

Matthias Fenris
i got lazy.. pheonix... pheo... durr?

phoenix...

XanatosForever
It's a nick I originally gave her, because I kept seeing her username and hearing "pheo" (prounounced as Fio).

i got the connection, just trying to be a dick....your making it hard >.<

Phoenix3068
lol Kirby all I heard in that sentence is "dick" and "hard" which this is a M Rated Thread :3 lmao

Matthias Fenris
ditto to xan.. and fail on being a dick...

Phoenix3068
I was wondering, would anyone who knows a lot about Halo be interested in making a post detailing all of the weapons available? I would do it but I have to log off and with the new system implemented at my school its a bit hard to in the morning (The TEACHERS watch the screens now, not just the admins, so I'm getting criticized by my pervert teachers who are watching my messages)

Matthias Fenris
i volunteer.. gunna go with link to appearances, and discrips of fire rates, ammo count, effectiveness and types...

covy weaps COMING SOON!

Phoenix3068
lol thanks Matt.

Matthias Fenris
UNSC Armoury:
pistols; The UNSC has three variants of handguns available to its forces. They all operate the same, but variances in ammo count, and optical zoom capability.
This is the variant used by the ODST forces, comes with a 12 count ammo clip, and 2x zoom.
http://gearmedia.ign.com/gear/image/article/102/1027345/weapons-locker-halo-3-odst-20090922011414650-000.jpg
This variant is used mainly by navy personel, also comes with a 12 round clip, but lacks the 2x zoom.
http://cdn1.gamepro.com/global/radar/blog_images/95673-1.jpg
This variant is used by UNSC army personel, and comes with a smaller 8 round clip, and 2x zoom.
http://www.haloreach.com.au/images/reach-pistol.jpg
you'll note that theres very little physical appearance differance from the army and navy issue handguns. all types are considered magnum class.
All handguns operate well at medium to close range conditions.

Automatic rifles; The UNSC uses many variants of automatic, high fire rate weaponry.
This is the army issue assault rifle. it has a 36 round clip, a high rate of fire, and is the backbone of the UNSC military weaponry.
http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs18/f/2007/136/5/7/Halo_Assault_Rifle_Revamped_by_OutFoxedTW.jpg

This variant is the navy issue assault rifle, and offers the same rate of fire and ammo capacity, but there are some models that house a 60 round clip.
http://www.freewebs.com/worldinacup/Assault%20Rifle.jpg
both models operate well in close to medium range battles.

This is the UNSC sub compact machine gun, favored by the navy for ship boarding and defense.
http://www.techarena.in/files/image/guide/092009/Halo_3_ODST/halo_sniper_rifle.jpg
It comes with an extremely high rate of fire, and an extendable stock. and a strong 60 round clip that is easily and quickly expended due to the high fire rate. accuracy is low on full auto, but the weapon truly shines in close quarters. Can be dual wielded at a considerable loss in accuracy.

This is the UNSC battle rifle. is holds a 36 round clip and fires highly accurate rounds in a 3 shot burst. high stopping power. This rifle is very effective at medium to long ranges. Aim for the head.
http://xboxmedia.gamespy.com/xbox/image/article/562/562670/4_1099367312.jpg

This is the designated marksman rifle, now exclusivey used by the UNSC army branch. It holds a 15 round clip and fires in single shots every time the trigger is pulled. High stopping power. effective and medium to long ranges. Aim for the head.
http://pr0gaming.com/images/halo-reach-dmr.jpg

Sniper rifle;
The UNSC has many varients of the popular sniper rifle, but all of them have the same rate of fire, ammo capacity and stopping power. They are very long built rifles tha house a 4 round clip and fire high velocity, armor peircing rounds. The rounds are capable of penetrating multiple targets and can even puncture through vehicle plating. they are effective and long and extreme ranges. HIgh recoil.
http://forcedisconnect.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/halo-snipe.jpg

Heavy support;
The UNSC has powerful heavy support weapons, capable of anti- personel and anti-armor functions.

The UNSC rocket launcher comes in two varieties. Both house dual launching tubes capale of firing two rockets before needing to reload. One varient locks on to armoured targets, and the other vairent simply dumb-fires the rockets straight. Ammo clips house the rockets and are loaded from the top left side of the launcher. They are the disposable after use, but the launcher and tubes can be re-used. There is no physical differences to both variances, and all rockets have extremely high explosive damage in a large radius. Effective vs hard targets and clusters of infanty.
http://www.freewebs.com/halo2dictator2/rocketlauncher.jpg

The UNSC army also deploys a single shot, burst propelled grenade launcher. It has high personel damage, and medium anti-armor capability. Fires one shot before needing to reload, and the trigger can be held down to delay grenade explosion. Grenade explodes on impact, but only after its traveled a safe distence away from the user. Grenades explode with an added E.M.P. burst that disables shields and vehicles. Effective vs vehicles and heavy infantry.
http://www.gamejudgment.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/Halo-Reach-Grenade-Launcher-Preview-12th-April.jpg

The spartan laser is a high density, concentrated laser weapon. It is battery operated, shoulder mounted high damage anti-armor weapon. To fire it, it must be charged up for a few seconds before the charge is fired. can safely fire 5 bursts before its charge is depleted and the weapon becomes useless. The lasers effect fires in a continious beam for a short duration that pierces multiple armoured targets and is capable of massive damage. Effective vs any single target.
http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090221045203/halo/images/5/5f/Page_spartan_laser.jpg

The UNSC missile pod is a large stationary multi-missile launching system. It is too large and heavy to be used as a mobile weapon by any non-spartan troops. It houses 8 small homing missiles that lock on to armoured targets and have the capability to track and follow targets past evasive manuevers. Usually found in stationary defensive struts to be used against airbourne targets. Spartans can heft and carry the detatched pods with a considerable loss in mobility. Effective vs arial armor.
http://xbox360media.ign.com/xbox360/image/article/800/800896/halo-3-20070701114857029.jpg

The flame thrower is a heavy anti personel weapon used to flush out bunkered emplacements. It is very heavy, and its operators suffer a large loss of mobility. Fuel is all self contained within the system. Heavy damage to infantry, as the flames are a napalm base, and cling to targets. The flames continue to burn afterwards. Effective against clusters of infantry.
http://www.gamerhelp.com/images/content_images/129360-5.jpg

Stationary turrets operate as fixed defenses as anti-infantry measures. normal troops can carry and deploy a stationary turret quickly and effectively in most battlefield situations. Stationary turrets can be redeployed again, and house a large drum of ammo, belt fed into the gun.
http://media.teamxbox.com/dailyposts/halo2bios/14turret.jpg
Other types of stationary turrets are bolted to their placements, and must be forcable detatched by spartan forces to carry. These are high rate of fire, high stopping power drum fed weapons that highly reduce mobility, but give a great offensive capability to infantry and lightly armoured targets.
http://media.monstersandcritics.com/articles/1304409/article_images/halo3spartanredturret2tifjpgcopy.jpg

The UNCS finally has a standard fragmentation type grenade. Soldiers simply have to activate the fuse and throw the explosive. Detonation happens 2 seconds after the grenade hits any object after the fuse is lit, or it will detonate in the air after 10 seconds. Very effective against infantry, as well as inside vehicles.
http://media.teamxbox.com/dailyposts/halo2bios/26grenade.jpg

Matthias Fenris
wow, that took an hour and 20 minutes.. jesus.. should i do UNSC vehicles next? or just jump to covy weapons?

(>^^)>
vehicles

(>^^)>
can i make a second spartan, after playing the games, i remembered how much i love cqc, smashing them with my gun, or grabbing a turret and mowing shit down, but also love sniping, so second spartan?

Matthias Fenris
ill do that tomorrow, maybe... or later tonight... or something..

Matthias Fenris
oh and.. im pretty sure you can make another char... xans got 2.. im only going with one because i hate having two of my chars involved in an rp... always creates a conflict of interest and one ends up killing the other... or others...

Phoenix3068
>.< I'm very much against making two Spartan's because they are the omega's of the UNSC Force. Especially sense there are very limited Spartan-III and Spartan-II are mostly out of commission. What do you think Matt, if anything I'd say a Spartan from Gamma Company sense they were last ones commissioned and sense they should still have some left.

Matthias Fenris
hmmmn.. there ARE still "spartan II's" that wee made outside of dr. hasleys batches. like the spartan team black.. there were about over a dozen of them.. and their variants of mjolnir were a bit more advanced (if more fragile) than dr. halseys, too. but they werent on reach.. and as far as spartan III's go, id say there was quite possibly a large number of them on reach when the covies attacked. if not on planet, then o the massed fleet that came to back reach up. and onyx happened months afterwards, so during reach there would still be relatively fresh spartan III's coming out into the field.. and sense alt of them were sent in as very large groups often, the chances are high that SOME of them survived to report back to duty on other ships. SO!

id say its not a stretch to believe theres more than a few spartan III's around, even after the events of halo 3, so why not have a few more just after reach? *shrugs* its the II's that are in SHORT supply.. remember, the III's were made to be cost effective, and expendable.. there were ALOT of them...

Phoenix3068
that's not what I'm saying, there are spartan-III but...

Alpha Company = Almost all K.I.A. The ones that survived (Jun, Carter, maybe Emile? ) were misplaced lol.
Bravo Company = 300 Commissioned, 298 were presume killed. The ones that survived (Kat, 312, etc) were all pulled out but there weren't many of them.

We're pushing the storyline by making too many Spartan-III's and I don't want to interrupt it so much as make a "Filler" lol. Making more Spartan-III's from Alpha or Bravo then we need seems a bit like we're pushing it. That's the main reason why I only wanted 1 Spartan per character. But Gamma has a vast supply that was not K.I.A. and even a lot that were M.I.A.

Matthias Fenris
so... make an ODST, then? O_o...
(and im pretty sure everything i said coincided with what you just said, but in different wording, but it doesnt matter..)

Matthias Fenris
OR! make a johnson/ forge char!! how badass would that be?! if they were any better, they'd be spartans, themselves!

Phoenix3068
.... Johnson = Spartan 1. Forge = Sergeant Badass. Buck = The True (If he were any better, he'd be a Spartan)

Matthias Fenris
buck never really came across as badass... just a good leader.. johnson is quite possibly the most legendary character in all of the halo universe.. far outshines the master chief.. and forge did something no other human ever has... killed an arbiter... in close quarters combat.. and made a sacrifice that was only a hundred million times more effective than jorge's... or johnsons, for that matter... <.<.. too bad no-one really knows about it..

Liberator
Keep this alive! I'll be making a Marine later today. Cheers.

Matthias Fenris
....i approve of that man.. i really do.. i shall dub thee... hector.. O_o

Phoenix3068
Buck was a good soldier, unlike most ODST he took on a large Covenant force solo through the first flashback sequence of Halo 3: ODST XD (Yes, I killed the marines). Forge did two things that no other soldier has ever done. Wielded an Energy Sword, and Killed the Arbiter (Something only other Covenant have ever done lmao). Finally, Johnson wasn't all that badass. Halo 1: He survived. Halo 2: Semi-badass, got his butt kicked by the Arbiter and never really showed up! Halo 3: Got his ass kicked by a Brute Chieftan, Got his butt kicked by some brutes away from the bomb which John cleared in 5 seconds, got his butt kicked by another Brute swarm at the Shield, couldn't do anything when Miranda got shot in the back, and got his butt kicked a final time by the Oracle. And to those of you who criticize because of him kicking ass outside before the Oracle, he had a Spartan Laser and was sitting on top of a mountain 30 feet off the ground! If he didn't kick ass then I'd have to kick his he's a Spartan for god sake!

Matthias Fenris
O_o... go read contact harvest, and first strike. and the flood. in game, the master chief is unstoppable juggernaught. in the books, hes not.. then come back and try to tell me johnson isnt a BAMF. and for the record.. miranda got herself killed.. she was supposed to be the rescue team, but thats what you get for letting a woman drive.. O_o killed by a prophet, no less... tsk. at least johnson was still fighting every time he got captured. did you see th beating he took while still laughng in their face?

it takes balls to punch something in the gut that could easily rip a silverback gorilla in half and devour it. plus, hes the only human with enough badassitude to ever get swarmed by the flood, and survive due to sheer badassedry.

Phoenix3068
... =.= 1. Insult women again and just see if I don't go medieval on your ass. 2. Johnson was TRYING to get himself killed so that they couldn't activate the rings. 3. He's a Spartan, his augmentation made him immune to the flood (Just like every other Spartan).

Matthias Fenris
hes actually NOT immune to the flood... <.<.. andit still makes johnson that much more badass...

philisophical moment.. all those "women belonging in the kitchen" jokes... i find it interesting.. women have milk and eggs inside their bodies... O_o...

(>^^)>
Johnson survived because of a genetic flaw called Borens syndrome....

Phoenix3068
-.- no, that was actually a lie that was built to protect Johnson.

Matthias Fenris
uhh, no? he got that because he stole a massive case of 2,000 plasma grenades from the covenant and then USED THEM ALL to stop a covy assault force.. (they all died) go read the flood again.. the flood totally almost got john.. cortana saved his pale bionic ass.. think of it.. be woulda been the strongest flood EVER... O_O

(>^^)>
Originally posted by Phoenix3068

how would that protect him? as far as protecting him goes, wasnt itJohn was given a datapad, file (whatever it was) from Halsey, about johnson's boren syndrome that kept him from being infected and wanted it to reach some organization science place, where they would then experiment, cut, disect, and kill johnson to try and figure out how to use that to protect other humans, but there was like a 1 in 1000 chances they would succeed, and master cheif basically said "**** that" and destroyed it, to protect Johnson...or did i get that wrong?

Matthias Fenris
he was totally going to hand it over to top brass, actually... then johnson showed off his badassitude, and john was like.. "we need more badasses in this world" and said "your cool..im not going to get you killed", then they fist bumped and the resulting badasserdy killed every grunt within 117 light years.. <.<...

Phoenix3068
>.< This is the last that will be said on the matter or go to a free discussion thread sense this is used for the RP and not the story of John and John(son)

I know what I read people, Johnson was immune to the flood and the Boren's Syndrome was supposed to be a lie that was created by Halsey to avoid them digging in his body to find out what it was that made him immune and mass producing it.

It was a believable story because it was contracted due to his stealing of the crate that held 2,000 plasma grenades which came from the extreme generation of plasma residue.

EDIT: And YES! SPARTAN'S ARE IMMUNE TO THE FLOOD BECAUSE OF THE AUGMENTATION THEY GET! (it wasn't meant to be that way it was a side effect) =_=

END OF STORY! >.< If you'd like to continue this, do it on a new thread, because this is off-topic.

Matthias Fenris
i demur. post your char? gather those people who said they'd join and make them post their char? (and id like to see where the info about spartans being immune came from..)

(>^^)>
makes sense spartan-ii's were immune because they were hardcore cyborgs, but spartan-i's (johnson) i dont believe got any cybornetic upgrades, mostly chemically induced enhancements, like super steroids for the muscles kind of thing, and the spartan-ii being 'immune' to flood might just be (what i like to call) the "can't touch me" effect, where theysimply kicked way to much flood ass to get infected.
further, i still dont see how the borens syndrome was a lie to prevent them from being digging into him, they were going to dig into him because of it, the only debate i've read about is whether he's immune, or just never got infected
edit: they might have been one or two implants, when i was reading it, it was fairly technical terms, didnt understand one or two words

Matthias Fenris
oh, and this is incredibly on topic, because what if we run into the flood via rp? O_O.. we've GOT to know if some of us are immune or not...

and no-one, not even cortana or hasley really knew if the spartans could be infected or not, because no spartan ever got killed by the flood. (take THAT, covenant!) plus, the flood avoided johnson because the disease is highly degenerative.. he honestly didnt have very much time left to still be a badass, because he was technically dying.. genetic disorders woulda carried on to the flood and potentially killed alot of flood.

whereas the II's enhancements would seem to make them a very valuable target for the flood. imagine new flood combat forms that are stronger and faster because of the altered spartan DNA.... its scary..

and i think all UNSC forces have some form of implant, just nothing augmetic. possibly like subdural dog tags, and transponder signals or something.. not sure...

>.< I want to wait for the others but if your that insistent on it, if none of the other guys post by tonight I will post it okay?

(>^^)>
they have something that monitors their life signs, and its possible that the implants are what made them impossible to control or infect, imagine if your body was composed with cyborgnetic parts, but you couldnt control them, have you seen the flood? they barely run with regular bodies right stick out tongue

Phoenix3068
My characters... I'll probably make 3, just cuz I feel like it >.> though I'll control about 5,0429,146 due to having to control the crew XD lmao (i'll honestly just mention them but not control them)

(>^^)>
wow, power hungry much? stick out tongue

Matthias Fenris
yaaaaaayyy... and dude, i think alot of those things come from their BDU's.. or in the case of spartans, their power armor. and i like to think of the flood like that kurt russel movie "the thing" and i dunno what games you were playing, but the flood are FAST, and pants crappingly scary to face.. the "cortana" level of halo 3 still makes me shiver...

and as far as the enhancements.. its not a cyborg type of thing... i would put them up similar to space marines from 40k..

Okay enough on this subject, let's discuss other aspects of the RP.

-'Forever Night' Crew.
Sense nobody officially wants to MAKE a member of the crew, everyone can use in their posts the crew to their advantage but there can be no one specific crew member unless you decide to create them.

-Dead Soldiers
Yeah... "I found one in my drop pod! I Didn't appreciate it!"

-Ghosts
We will NOT be running into: Master Chief, Johnson, Miranda, or basically any cannon characters. The RP is based on the side. That is why we are part of the "Ghost Crew". Never seen in game or in novel :P

-Covenant
Remember you are permitted to make a Covenant Character but these are an absolute must be approved. In other words, you better make it good >.<

-Pilots
Also must be approved, but they will be important. I would like volunteer pilots for this RP ^^

<More will be posted later>

(>^^)>
flood are the only zombie thing to scare me, short of that one time a tanker snuck up on me in left 4 dead, dont ask me how, one second there was nothing, then bam, ****ing ninjad by a tanker!

Matthias Fenris
though i lawled a bit at it, im confused at the dead soldiers line...

Phoenix3068
Oh yeah...

-Flood.
After we work out a bit of the details and actually start the RP I might feature the flood.

As for all the thing's I posted, please give idea's on what you guys think of each.

(>^^)>
also, i will total make a pilot, a crew member, and another spartan or ODST if you prefer

Phoenix3068
@Matt: We're still technically in the Halo Universe, so we will find dead soldiers. For instance, the slipspace in New Mombasa. If we go there, we will see the damage. We will see the left over damage from battles fought by the UNSC and even some of the left over scraps of the Chief. But we will not actually encounter them as they follow the story.

(>^^)>
also, i cant get the screenshots of my guy off my x-box because i'm not a gold member >.<
