Yes, you read the title correctly.

This is the fourth run through of my "The Encroaching Shadow" RP. The first one was several months ago, and it finished up, but I never really continued. Then I tried re-doing it in January, and a third time a month or so ago, and I never even finished on either of those occasions.

Now, I have been contacted by JCaedus, and asked to start up another RP that he would be able to participate in. Not only was I willing to oblige, but this will hopefully provide a chance to finish up the story once and for all.

OK, so here's the set up:


Premise: One month has passed since Klingon Warships attacked the Civilian Passenger Liner Repercussion (This event is detailed in my Fanfic, "Flashpoint - The Events that lead to War", which I am now in the process of revising). Tensions between the Federation and the Klingon Empire have been steadily intensifying since then, especially with the revelation that Ameena Leffeld, daughter of a Federation Councilman, had been a passenger on the Repercussion and had been assassinated using a Klingon Dagger during the attack. Councilman Leffeld has begun calling for an escalation in the war with the Klingons, seeking revenge for the death of his only daughter.
However, there is a very distinct possibility that Miss Leffeld was not assassinated by the Klingons themselves, but by someone who wants the Federation to think that the Klingons were behind her assassination. Investigating that possibility is Section 31 Special Operative Tieria Erde, requested to do so by a Starfleet Captain who had answered the Repercussion's Distress Call. Tieria's search leads him to the Arcus System (a system within the Triangle which is close to where the Klingon and Romulan borders meet), where he detects unusual power signatures coming from the fourth planet in the system. Sharing his findings with his Section 31 Superiors, Tieria is ordered to investigate, but to gather a small Federation Task Force to assist him. Using Starbase 234 (the closest Federation Outpost to the Arcus System) as the Rally Point, Tieria has sent out an anonymous message over the Priority Channel for any Starfleet Vessels otherwise unoccupied to gather there......

Type of RP: This will be a Fed-Only, PvE RP. The GM will control the primary villains, known as the Shadow-Mirrors.

Dramatis Personae:
GM: The GM will control the Storyline Events. I'll take this role myself, but the only way I will dictate combat is to introduce any enemy ships. I'll also designate a sub-GM for any segments I won't be able to deal with.


Starfleet:
Section 31 Special Operative Tieria Erde: Human Male, Age Unknown. This will be my Primary Character for this RP. Tasked with the investigation into Miss Leffeld's death, the results of that investigation so far have caused him to request any and all otherwise unoccupied Shadow Fleet Vessels to gather at Starbase 234, on the edge of the Triangle Region of Space.

Fleet Captain Alexander "Alex" Yamato: Human Male, Age 24. This is my STO Main, and is the one who first asked Tieria to investigate Miss Leffeld's death. Alex will be joining the action on his ship, the Gryphon-Class Fleet Escort Vessel Maelstrom. (NOTE: Fleet Captain is a rank I am assuming exists in Starfleet, and is a rank that Captains would take if given command of ships that are normally commanded by Admirals)

Starfleet Captains: I'm going to want 4 other Starfleet Captains to join Tieria and Alex in their investigation. Feel free to use your best characters if you want to join me. At least one of those Captains should be female to provide Tieria with a possible Love Interest. Oh, and please use ships that exist in STO and are appropriate for your character's Rank. I don't want to see people using Sovereign-X vessels, and I don't want to see a Commander in charge of a Prometheus. However, if you're like me (content to be a Captain, yet commanding an Admiral-level Ship), you can simply call your character a Fleet Captain.



I'm going to wait to start the RP itself until Saturday or Sunday (so that more people who want to join may do so before we begin), and I'll see about creating a Soundtrack Thread for us as well. Please post here if you want to take part.

I hope to hear from all interested parties soon!!!!!!

EDIT 4/24/2010: RP Thread is up, and can be found here.

My primary character will be T'mas Jarus. He is a Kintaga (Alien Species I created for STO.) His people were conquered similar to how Bajorans once had the Occupation, but he led a resistance group and ultimately was able to over throw the forces holding his people captive (The Kintaga have a long lifespan similar to Vulcans, so although it sounds like this happened over night it really took decades for him to do this. Also he did not start as the leader, he inherited it, but that story is for another time )

Ive envisioned him to be a disciplined individual with strength of mind, not as logical as a Vulcan though. He is a formidable fighter, with a variety of weapons skills and covert operations knowledge. New to sitting in the big chair, he has risen through the ranks quickly and is now a Captain in command of a true Defiant-class starship. Her designation is USS Anubis.

Glad to have you aboard, J!!

Don't forget to swing by the Soundtrack Thread and select your character's theme music.

My character will be Fleet Captain Joshua Vincent commanding the Sovereign Class Assault Cruiser the USS Bloomington. He is a young human who specializes in engineering. He is an exceptional space combatant, and he can hold his own on the ground. He has a non-combative personality, but he can hold his own against even a Klingon negotiator if he needs to. He is rather intelligent and will opt for a technological solution to conflict (ie-sabotaging defenses, etc.) instead of direct combat in most situations.

He heard Tiera Erde's call for assistance and set in a course for Starbase 234 immediately and should be arriving shortly!

EDIT 4/25: Changed the name of my ship to the USS Bloomington.

Captain Gideon "Stormy" Daniels and the assault cruiser USS Kettle Creek reporting per the Priority Channel call for ships in the area. Daniels is a liberated Borg human, 41, originally from Big Timber, Montana, who struggles to maintain his humanity after an extended assimilation with the Borg. Battles with the Borg have been extremely conflicting for him as, although liberated, he still feels he can hear the Collective giving him commands. Despite this ever-present feeling of loss and beckoning since his liberation, Daniels commands with a calm and assured demeanor, betraying the turmoil underneath.

Glad to have the two of you in.

Also, the story will begin with Tieria arriving at the starbase and sending out his message summoning everyone there--I figure that gives you guys the chance to make an intro post or two before arriving.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with for your Themes!!

RP Thread is up, and can be found here. Those participants who haven't chosen themes yet should do so sooner rather than later.

Yamato, good to see you with another RP.
If I may I would like to continue with my character cpt Brizza Hun'ett. She is in comman of the USS Venom. This is a Tarantuala class super dreadnaught used by a race caling itself the sisterhood. She and her crew were given commissions in starfleet following their actions against the klingons in their atack on DS-9. Since that time they have been stranded this side of te wormhole.
Please let me know if she is accepable. Can give specs on her ship if needed.

Sorry, gothhillbilly. I remember you from the second go-around, and honestly, I kinda found your performance lacking. You have potential, but you need to learn how to harness it properly.

I'd suggest looking over this thread--it contains some very handy tips. But for now, I'd have to say that you'll need to sit this one out.

Again, I'm sorry about this.

No prob Yamato. I know i'm a rookie at this and mmo's as well. Been far too long since any creative writing. If you would, could you PM me if you come across a RP where I might be able to get in? I'm completely open to playing help. I think I was playing 3 RPs at one time. That's over extending and not doing as well as I could for any one.
