Jifel added to player list. Only a few slots left now.
Btw, I have made the prologue, and I will add it to this thread when this game is allowed to start. :thumbup:

Greetings,
JD

Hmm. I will probably use a racer head with goggles, and HP or normal black hair. Those sound alright? I don't have the agents head, which looks rather nice btw. :wub:

Well, it looks like we are getting together quite a nice number of players for this. I hope this means that the game will be approved. :thumbup:

I'm still working on my character, but I have a few questions. This takes place during (or towards the end of) a nuclear war, right? So this must be a distopian future? Cause that sentence about Skyscrapers and flying cars makes it sound somewhat Utopian. Explain please?
Also, can we have some more info on the nuclear war? Was it caused by the humans? If so, who is/was fighting?
And are there any specifics about how the aliens and robots are supposed to look like? It might be a good idea if there wasn't so that players can use any figs they want in their MOCs.

Looking forward to the start of this game! :classic:

Hopefully Robots/aliens will be varied to the point that any could be used. I predict lots of Exo-robots.

I think that a most of the planet is a smoking wasteland, but with a few super technological advanced cities dotted around. (that survived the nuke/rebuilt)

i'll probably use silver droids from the battlepack and super battle droids as heavy versions. dunno about aliens how about the ones from the cheaper SPIII sets?

i'll end up being Garviel again i think, but with all new background and costume!

1.This takes place near the end of the nuclear war. That sentence was meant to emphasize how far into the future we are and how advanced our technology is. Those skyscrapers are destroyed or damaged now, and the flying cars are almost gone.

2. It was a war over resources. After mining one side of the moon, the different countries all started bickering on who would get the other half. Instead of sharing, one country wanted all the power. Then a president was assasinated, people think by a rival diplomat's hired assasin. Then there was more fighting and someone pressed the red button. Then everyone else panicked and set of their nukes too. Really it was caused by the robots who took advantage of the situation. They were so loyal and obidient they were not considered suspects. :wink:

3. The aliens are the ones from the UFO theme. You can use the Mars Mission ones if you don't have the UFO aliens and you want to make a MOC. :thumbup: Just as long as they look the part. :classic: Urm. I am not too sure about the robots. Perhaps the astromechs from SW? :laugh: Nah, they could look like anything becuase robots all have different functions.

There is still some heavily damaged cities left, and there is one city unaffected by the war and unknown to the inhabitants everywhere else on the globe. I suppose some could be slightely rebuilt too. :thumbup: The war is still going on, but it has almost reached its end.

Yeh, SPIII aliens would be good too. Not sure about the SBDs, but the assasin droids would look fine. :thumbup:

Ah. Thanks for that info, JD.

And yes, I was thinking about using EF robots too. But as JD says, they could be any brick-built ones. It'll be hard for some to include UFO aliens since it's an old theme and not many had it, but since they always wear helmets, I guess it should be easy for everyone to make characters with helmets and shoulder protectors of some kind. :wink: (As for me, I do have some UFO aliens :thumbup: )

@ computerbug: I don't have that hairpiece either and nothing similar to it. :sceptic:  Perhaps you could give us an alternative?

Btw, how about we call this game Apocalyptica? (like my Block Block contest entry :laugh: )? I think it sounds a bit more interisting than just Apocalypse. :wink:

I have plenty of robots, but not aliens. I could a few SP. III aliens, but I think anything without a Human head should work. (or Yoda!)

My sigfig is ready, I will wait till this is approved until I post all though.

Don't have that head either, but don't worry.

I have one from the Arctic Mission sets that would work just fine with sunglasses. I do have the blue hair though...somewhere...I'll have to go dig it up, on the double.

C.C (my initials) C.C or "Chris" is avery talented inventor soon before the apocalypse he designed mechanical arms that would come out of his backpack at the shout of the word "TOOLS". In a freak inventing accident that involved a bucket of gears and a high voltage A-63 unit with an artificial intelligence meltdown caused his hands to become useless but soon afterwards he developed some three fingered metal hands that were fire proof and had rubber cushions on the inside so he couldn't get electrocuted. He is always wearing goggles is pretty quiet and is very paranoid. He always has a tool belt or tool-box and is not very fast when it comes to building but he makes amazing creations if you give him the time.
Aww, I wanted to be the scientist. You can be the inventor?

My character is decal'ed. I have a replacement.

Anakin hair.
Double head from Stone Chopper
Decal. (White tie and suit) Replacement is any suit torso.
Light tan pants

Or when in battle armor:

Same hair and head.
Epaulette (blue)
Brown cape (epaulette goes on top of cape)
Orange Exo-Force armor (Ryo torso)
Dark green pants (found in Pirate impulse)

Pic(s) soon.

Marcus "Smart Ar$e" Nickstill is a 42 year old scientist. He was one of the designers for the robots that soon took over the Earth in 4015 (A.D) He is usually depressed due to his state of guilt because he almost killed the Earth. He trys to find away to kill the "immortal" aliens that invaded Earth in 4017 (It is currently 4022.) He has invented what he calls a "lightsaber" (whackjob :tongue: ) which is a small black rod that emits a red beam of light that can cut through almost anything. He lives in an airtight bunker. His wife was killed in lab that the robots first went haywire. His daughter was beamed into an alien ship and Mark still has no idea where she is. He lives in the bunker with a robot that he reprogrammed. He calls it "YG-49" :wink:

Name: John Aximand.
Age: 39
Height: 5'11"


John was a corporate trillionaire before the Apocalypse. He ran the worlds largest energy company, specialising in Nuclear Power. When the bombs fell, most of the Power Plants were destroyed, releasing radiation that killed millions. The rest were harnessed by the Robots, to power the factories that produce more and more machines. John is held accountable for this by some of the survivors, so he often works alone, and even when with others he will distance himself somewhat. He still wields enormous power and has huge amounts of money. He uses this to further his own needs, which are to disable all the remaining factories, and take out as many robots as possible. He lives in the ruins of his city, where he has an underground bunker full of weapons, wealth, and dissassembled robots. He is determined to shoy down the factories if it's the last thing he does. Jifel wields a pair of semi-automatic pistols, with armour piercing rounds. He is proficient with a sword, but doesn't use it because "If you're that close to them, you're already dead."

Name: Garviel Loken ( :tongue: )
Age: 27

Garviel Loken is one of the few survivors from the Moon Mining ship "Grey Dwarf." After the incident he joined the Resistance against the increasing number of machines, he currently lives in the wasteland surrounding the ruins of what used to be city 23.

Edit: "Classic" Garviel hair and head, any torso with armour or battle damaged (i've been using the TFU apprentice torso) for my sigfig, pics will be up sometime

Yep I'm supposed to be the freak with no life inventor that is not to strong or brave but is an extremely dexterous inventor that knows all the inner workings of the robots and believes that the screwdriver is mightier than the sword. So your guy can be a chemist or something. And I don't have Ani hair so would any other types of hair or a helmet work?

Thanks for all those profiles. :thumbup: I'm thinking that several of you should be in 'City 23' where simonjedi is, so Zach can recruit you. Then we move on to another city and get the rest of you.

New profiles being added.

Ok, I am in city 23 than!
(simonjedi, I was SO tempted to name my character Torgadon, but I decided on Aximand for a las name.)
Anyway, my thoughts on what City 23 should be like:

City 23 was halfway decimated by a nuclear factory on the outskirts of the City. The Power Plant was relatively small, so Irradiation is relatively low. While the other half was at first undamaged, the Robots quickly crashed through to seize control of a much larger Nuclear Powerplant. Half the city is irradiated and mostlty ruined, so is inhabited by robots, aliens, mutants and the very rare human. The other half has battle damage from the Robots, and is now heavily guarded by the mechanical killers. A thin belt between the two halves is where many of the humans live, including John Aximand. The robots are trying to wipe out the last resistance, but nothing is more dangerous than a hiveboy in his city, especially when he knows where you are.

JD, can you update my profile with Aximand as my last name?

I meant Clone Wars Anakin hair. In armor, he can have a Clone helmet with antennae. (And he's going to be in armor a lot of the game :tongue: )
Though, when normal, he can have Mutt hair.

Lol. That's the sort of role I played back in the SWCG. :tongue: I think I'll be the opposite this time: the tough guy. :devil:

Btw, with all the nuking going on, are there mutants or people with superpowers of some kind?

@ YG-49: Clone helmet? Endor bunker? Sandcrawler? You know this isn't a SW game, right? :tongue: Seriously, I think we should keep everything star wars related out of this so that it doesn't get confusing. Except for blasters.
