    Default Star Exodus: A Mecha RPG

    In the year 2818, Earth is dying. In search of a solution, a lifeship called the USS STAR EXODUS has been commissioned by the UNDF (United Nation’s Defense Forces) and with the help of a contingent of the alien race known as Argonians, set out to find a new homeworld. However, conflicts abound, inside and outside the ship. On the journey through deep space, encounters with the Prima Goetia, wondrous, yet monstrous beings that occupy the farthest reaches of space and plague the ship’s journey. The inside of the ship, a floating nation, has religious figures of the Argonian people clashing with the views of the Earthling military and the seedier elements populating the ship. As a UNDF Titan pilot, your mission will be to brave a path to this new world, and decide for who it should be for...

    WELCOME TO STAR EXODUS: A MECHA RPG! Think Knights of Sidonia when it comes to the titular ship in the title. Each person playing will be the pilot of a mech, classified as a T1XTN, with customization based on the player’s own ideas. You may choose a character from three factions:

    UNDF : Career soldier, member of the Earth’s premier fighting force now guarding the Star Exodus, the first Space Raft. Generally structured and responsible people when it comes to decision making in the battlefield and varying degrees of order outside of it as well. Headed by Admiral Jayson Maxus, a man respected by many for his efforts in the Unification War of 2807-2811, with General Broadus “Brutus” Larkin as your field commander, a man driven to win and stomp out all opposition. At all costs

    Order of AR : The alien faction on the ship. Having arrived on Earth two decades before the Star Expdus was crafted, the contingent of Argonians on Earth worked with the humans to craft the ship, albeit for their own purpose: to begin their pilgrimage to the holy star ISO-8 and the promised planet, Noble. Taller, age slower and stronger on average than a human (2X at least), they generally keep to themselves and at best, mix with humans only when it comes to a goal or business. A pilot from the Ordee of Ar is more than likely raised in the religion but has only information from people who lived on the home world, not any interaction with the home world. Secondhand informations nd traditions passed down out of a sense of routine. The leader is Angelo-1, one of the first to arrive on Earth and the High Priest of Ar. Is never seen without his bodyguards who are two of his numerous(biological) children. The Argonians forsook war centuries ago but still have some of the same instincts in their DNA.

    Underbelly : The criminal, seedier element. Big money backers, private contractors. Unified under one specific rumor of a leader known as “Ghost” who many suspect to be Armond Ngetutedi, the head of Revival, the leading weapons manufacturer on Earth who went along to provide for and watch his profit in action.

    The creatures you encounter, the Prima Goetia, bear resemblances to various beasts in the mythology of Earth. No human has an explanation other than maybe the trip is a journey towards Hell, as some fanatics have described, while Angelo-1 considers it as the great beasts testing those who wish to approach the motherland and if their aims are true and will is just, they will be allowed passage. That’s what he believes. That belief does not necessarily make it true. The beasts range in size, from as small as the head of a Titan mech in a swarm (Beezles) to the size of one (Flaurosso) to reportedly as large as a moon (Baalindrome, Cernunnosferatu, Ananta-7). Depending on the size, the engagement threat levels will range from low (one pilot), medium (three) to high (EVERY PILOT) and each mission will be coordinated with the admiral watching you all and General Larkin providing support from the bridge. Engagements are broadcasted across Star Exodus, as a tactic to boost morale. How questionable that is, would be a question for the general.

    Next, Character Sheet with examples!

    Character Sheet Template

    Name:
    Age: (Youngest for each faction is as follows: UNDF is 20, Underbelly is 19 and that’s with EXPLICIT MENTION OF FORGERIES and Order of Ar is twenty)
    Bio: Backstory of how your character was chosen as a Titan pilot and/or made it onto Star Exodus, plus their motivation
    Personality: 2-3 adjectives to describe them, and they would have to pass a psych evaluation so keep that in mind
    Skill: one skill they have unrelated to piloting
    Appearance:


    NEMESIS TECH: The idea was the way Nemesis Tech works is that while you may want to specialize, you’ll need to balance or at least lever yourself. Tying speed to other stats because if people just dump into speed then they’ll tear themselves apart first time they thrust in battle is the idea. Like anchor stats

    If you get High in speed need to tie it to two stats, the points increase as more are added.

    Mecha: What is their Mecha’s name and what type is it, CQ (Close quarters) or LR (Long Range). Each Titan must work with one of a different type to build rapport between them and their pilots.

    EX MOVES: abilities granted by the Nemesis System, it allows the pilot to craft unique weaponry for them and their Mecha. You can make two special moves at twelve points. Once you hit 24, you can add a third. Five will be the max. A special move must last for a certain duration and be explicit in what it does.

    STAT POINTS: You will start off with 12 points, and the places you can allocate them are

    ATTACK (ATK): Includes the physical capabilities of your frame and also the power of long range frame’s projectiles.

    INT: intelligence, awareness and strategy. This stat helps improve the handed of battle plans working. Any questions feel free to ask.

    The NPC’s, Part 1

    Name: Redana “Red” Murray

    Age: 23

    Bio: The lead technician, head mechanic and all around gadgeteer of the UNDF Titan Project. Daughter of Miguel Murray, former academic turned mad scientist and the man who kickstarted the Unification War with his FORCE series robots, 42 in total. Dangerously powerful and destructive AI’s set to rampage across the globe and only stopped by the intervention of his daughter, Jayson Maxus with his Covert Action Team (Slayton, Cash, Cray, King, Chang) storming the compound he had made in the clouds. After his imprisonment, Red became a ward of the state and then, adopted by Maxus. People wonder why she keeps her name but if you ask her she’ll say it’s to redeem the Murray family. In 2817, she proposed the Titan program and the crafting of the USS EXODUS, then received funding with Maxus’ backing, proud of his daughter. While she did not get to pick the pilots, Maxus and General Larkin assure her they’re the best if he best. She believes her father. Red is also eager to meet he pilots and see how the tech of the Titans responds to their styles and psych profiles.

    Personality: quirky, overeager mad scientist type with a dash of social awkwardness.

    Skill: gifted mechanical engineer.

    Appearance: Wild mane of red hair in a bun, yellow goggles constantly around her neck, green jumpsuit with green gloves, brown skin and green eyes. Constantly present backpack as well.

    Age: 21
    Bio: Born and raised on military bases, Micheal is the consummate professional soldier. He did well in school, but never broke a B average. He excelled athletically, always on one team or another depending on the season, but had pregnancy scares with three different girls and now doesn't date much casually. He enlisted at 18 rather than go to college, something his father, a major, opposed vehemently. Micheal volunteered for the Exodus, and pushed hard in Titan training to be the best he could.
    Personality: professional, collected, focused
    Skill: Piano



    Iron Will, designed for close quarters combat, a versatile chassis combined with weapons that both damage & disable the enemy at the same time.

    EX MOVES:
    Adaptive Thrusters: Iron Will features a complex array of propulsion systems, allowing it to augment movement in any direction, counter it's own momentum, and accelerate it's limbs to attack.

    EMP Claws: Focused, directional electromagnetic pulse generators built into Iron Will's claws. Triggered a picosecond after impact, they are designed to wreak havoc with internal systems in the damaged area.

    ATTK: 8
    INT:4

    Some (a couple, to start) questions:

    How alien are Argonians? From what's said, it appears like they're human-like but 'better', if more restrained.

    Will the Star Exodus already be on its journey when the game starts or will there be time to do things on Earth/elsewhere before the departure?

    Think of Yautja from Predator but not as tall, with green skin and instead of the strange mouths they have, the teeth are sharp and not from the sides. Very tall, limber species with a religion stemming from their days of hunting and now extending into a theological hunt for meaning. Will eat their elders as a way to pass on their knowledge and have them live on in the people once they get infirm/body starts failing them. Heightened senses but also an overwhelming appetite moreso than humans that requires twice as much food for them to operate. On the Star Exodus there are cattle and other creature in the zoos for them to hunt, made as a compromise by Admiral Maxus for their aide. Despite being on Earth for some time, have not truly integrated or assimilated due to a disdain for certain things Earthlings do.

    The Star Exodus will already be on it’s journey

    Name: Jayson Maxis
    Age:40
    Bio: Admiral Jayson Maxus was formerly Covert Action Team 7 Captain Maxus during the Unification War. Enlisting straight out of high school into the newly formed UNDF, he rose through the ranks at a lightning quick pace due to an equally quick mind and knack for strategy, along with impressive physical fortitude. A man renowned for his ability to get volatile personalities to work together, most heavily on display during the Unification War when his ragtag team of commandos manage to come together and siege the stronghold of Miguel Murray and shut down his forces/FORCES with the help of his daughter Redana. A number of accolades were given to Maxus who refuted the claims hoisted upon him but instead became curious about the young child they had found and who’s care they would be under. Through some finagling with his contacts in the government and what was formerly the Pentagon, Maxus became Redana’s legal guardian and with her help, proposed the idea of the USS STAR EXODUS to find a way to save Earth, or well at least it’s people. Known for his people skills, Maxis was chosen to be Admiral if the ship and oversee not just the military effort, but also the community efforts, making him someone who deals with the Order of Ar and the businesses on the ship, as well as the more reckless types. When he does get time alone, he can usually be found in the hangar marveling at the Titan project and wondering about his mission
    Personality: stern, levelheaded and charismatic
    Skill: Painting
    Appearance: Think Marc Slayton crossed with Jimmy Woo

    Forgot to add that thanks! I’m hoping it gets a decent turnout after a few weeks of preparation

    Short opinion: Why?

    Slightly longer opinion: I'd imagine that a world with known extant transhuman entities would most likely also not be dying, as the Earth of Star Exodus's 2818 is. Given some meanings of posthuman, I can't imagine any such being caring about the Earth dying outside some lingering attachment to its ancestors.

    The Unification War of 2807-2811 eradicates the small sect of those beings known as Prototypical Earth Transcendental Entities (PETEs) when Miguel Murray fried their brains with his fail safe.
