Topic: RPG: In Space No One Can Hear You Scream - SW vs Aliens

Let's start with the usual, I have also added a fairly long intro...

The Rules:

1. You may create any character you want. However they must be either a clone trooper, clone Commando (limit of four) or a hired mercenary. Clarify their name and rank/species so others can follow their actions easily. I will be moderating.

2. You can kill characters you create but you can't kill other people's characters unless they say they have been killed in battle with you. However you can wound them... aliens are fair game, but remember they're no push over.

3. You can have any weapon you want but you can only have what your character could physically carry - otherwise they wouldn't be able to move.

4. Be consistent, eg if someone says they blew up a building, don't suddenly be assaulting it.

5. If you have sustained many wounds you will have to either get medical help or eventually die. In the case of acid splash, you will die unless misted or wearing armour.

6. Follow the storyline, sure add a few twists and turns but allow others to see where you want to go so they can help you get there.

7. If you haven't seen the Alien films please check out this website so you have an understanding of the creature and it's lifecycle: http://www.planetavp.com/al/Biology/LifeCycle/

8. Don't bring the Queen into the story straight away. Let the suspense build.

9. Have fun.

Let us begin...

The sound of sirens echoed through the Notorious Force, the ship clearly failing. Lights blinked on an off with the surging power. Steam was building as the engine continued to burn. Atmosphere was leaking from the ship and there was no help in site.

The metallic scent of blood clung to the air as Milani Gnotnae reloaded her blaster pistol with a fresh energy cell. The deep gash in her upper arm was finally starting to clot, even though her blood was pumping alarmingly fast through her veins.

She was the last and she knew that didn’t matter. She was going to die too. The ship was too far away from base and too far away from help. The core would melt down eventually even if she did manage to stay alive long enough to witness it.

Milani noticed her knuckles were white as she held the blaster pistol. It was the last functioning weapon.

It was then that she heard the faint hiss. Her first instinct was to look up, that was how many of the others had been taken. Sure enough a large alien sat coiled ready to strike. Its elongated head gleamed each time the lights flickered on. A tendril of drool dripped slowly from its mouth and its finger-length teeth parted.

Milani didn’t hesitate, she fired. However she made the mistake of aiming at the head. She must have hit an artery as yellowish blood spurted from its head. Milani immediately jumped back, knowing that the blood was as dangerous as the beast, for its blood was acid.

Even as Milani jumped back, droplets of acid touched her boots. She ripped them off as the leather toes were eaten away by the potent liquid.

With her attention diverted, Milani didn’t notice the movement behind her. A small cream coloured creature that looked like a large spider with a tail moved in. The crew had been attacked by them first. Milani heard the scuttle turned and fired but the face hugger launched itself in the air and landed on her shoulder. Milani tried to push it off but its coil-like tail was already around her throat.

Milani knew what these things did. They impregnated their victim with the embryo that later became the adult. Of course the host died during the “birth”. Milani did the only thing she had left to do. She raised the blaster to her head and fired.

-

The small moon was only known as E34-JC. From the surface it appeared untouched and uninhabited. But like most things, you need to look beyond first appearances to understand what was really going on.

Close to the Southern Pole there was what appeared to be a large crater. It was actually a cover for a landing bay and entrance to a secret base.

Darth Sidious looked at the hologram once again with hungry intent. Dooku stood at his right awaiting a response from his master.

“They found the Notorious Force, or what’s left of it, in the Corellian Sector. Nothing was left alive.” Sidious hissed, clearly annoyed.

“Shall we send a more experienced party this time, my Lord?” Dooku queried.

“No.” Sidious said simply. “Let’s leave it to the Republic to handle it. I have a feeling that a platoon of Clone Troopers and a Squad of Commandos will suddenly have a new mission, along with a few mercenaries for hire. No one will miss them if they suddenly disappear.”

Dooku raised a brow, “What will their mission be?”

“To capture the facility or more importantly return a specimen of the creature they are breeding down there.” Sidious cooed evilly.

“What exactly are these creatures?” Dooku asked, hoping for an answer.

Sidious grinned, “They are death to whoever crosses their path.”

Dooku nodded understanding, “A powerful weapon against our enemies.”

“Indeed.” Sidious replied.

-

The message was cryptic, but then they often were. Commander Cody was to arrange a secret mission for his clones. What was also strange was the fact that extra mercenaries were also to be encouraged to assist. Cody didn’t like wildcards amongst his troops. But orders were orders.

Re: RPG: In Space No One Can Hear You Scream - SW vs Aliens

Name: Gustavo Perez
Occupation: Mercenary (Bounty Hunter)
Species: Human
WOC: modified "blaster revolver " ( a blaster with 6 smaller energy cells instead of 1 larger one. Slightly stronger than a DC pistol)
Secondary WOC: toxic darts, missile, whipcord, flamethrower ( contained in Mandalorian armor), vibroblade.

Gustavo sped to the coordinates displayed on the screen of his ship, Black Venom. The contract had said that the mission was to secure the facility Notorious Force, and better yet, to capture a specimin of the alien they were breeding there. It also said Republic forces would ally with any mercenaries interested. "Funny" though Gustavo. The Republic fighting alongside scum like him. He savored the idea.

WOC:  DC-17m with sniper attachment
2nd WOC:  Dual Wields DC-17 pistols, Vibroblades hidden under wrist gauntlet

He was sent from Kamino marked.  Him and his other Theta commandos, are all marked.  After what happened to the old Theta squad on Geonosis, no one wanted to be a member of Theta.  Even him.  As he was jostled in the LAAT/i he shuddered.  He heard this mission came from the Emperor himself, but most other details were sketchy.  They were to meet Cody at an unknown checkpoint and Cody would brief.  He also had heard that they were to work with some mercs.
"Fierfek," he swore under his breath, "I hope the mercs are picked off first."

Re: RPG: In Space No One Can Hear You Scream - SW vs Aliens

Commander Cody emerged to stand before his Troopers and Commandos. There was already a clear dislike at the idea of mercenaries joining the ranks. That was somewhat surprising since they had all been trained by Mandalorians who themselves were generally guns for hire.

Cody's presence seemed to quieten the platoon, even if they were generally chatting via their coms. "Attention soldiers. It's time for your briefing. You're going into an underground facility on the moon designated E34-JC. This is no ordinary mission. You will be required to detain the staff, however the primary objective is to bring home a live specimen from their laboratory."

"The sample you are retrieveing is know as a xenomorph." Cody continued.

One of the mercs spoke up. "So is this going to be a stand up fight or a bug hunt?"

"Depends on how efficient you are. If things go smoothly, you won't even have much of a fight." Cody stated.

The merc shrugged. "Then why are we here?"

"Loyalty for us. Mere credits for you, I'd assume." Cody pointed out drily.

The merc merely shrugged but he shut up.

Re: RPG: In Space No One Can Hear You Scream - SW vs Aliens

Rolland grimaced behind his mask, which vaguely resembled a human skull. His fists clenched inside his custom made aromor gloves. This chassey had been made especially for the Xenomorphs. The outer casing was highly resistant, almost immune, to the Xenomorph's acid blood, and the helmet was facehugger-proof. Furthermore, should a facehugger latch onto the helmet, he could activate a command from the controls in his helmet & electrocute the young alien. Easy as pie. That didn't mean he was unstoppable, oh no. He'd had one run-in with a Queen before, one that left him with a severe facial scar. Regrettably, he had been forcd to flee that battle, but not before tagging the Queen Xenomorph so that any eggs she layed and any subsequent aliens could be tracked by his ship. Indeed, Rolland was ready.

Name: RC 2458 "Aarcee"
Occupation: ARC clone Commando, LT.
WOC: DC-15 Carbine with folding stock and under barrel grenade launcher
secondary WOC: Verpine Shatter Pistol

LT. Aarcee stood behind the commander as he delivered his briefing, he was never one for speeches. He preffered to let his deece do the talking for him.
LT. Aarcee was a veteran of almost every clone campaign. Starting as a grunt on Geonosis and steadily working his way up the ranks by various missions and acts of heroism. The only thing he knew was combat. Bugs, droids, wets, they all died the same in his point of view.
Aarcee studied the clones in the audience chamber. The high command had also allowed the help of mercenaries to assist the clones. He scoffed, give him 10 minutes and a pack of thermal plastoid and he would do the job himself.
This new threat was no different to him. Supposedly some sort of new alien species was discovered and killed the entire crew of a starship. No matter. He was anxious to get behind the trigger again.

"Hrgh..." Nilson grunted, the lock for his keycard quit working again. "No..." He kicked it with his boot. The light turned green, and the  door opened. "Thank the force....this place scares even me." Nilson sighed with relief.

Nilson continued to walk his security route. "Next stop, the lab." He grined, then opened the door and walked in. "How's the mad doctor?"

"Fine I guess.....I'm analyzing more data from the computer.....The creature's blood is in some ways, a primitive molecular acid. It will eat straight through untreated durasteel....But what I've found through my recent tests, is that plaststeel is surprisigly resiliant." Briony stated.

"So....Where did this thing come from?" Nilson tapped the tank with the dead Alien in it.

"That little devil." She turned and pointed to the Facehugger on the table next to hers. They jump onto the victim's face....Then they have a little tube that goes down the throat, and impregnates them with an embryo. After they're done, they just fall off and die." She said.

"Yuck. But how did it get here?" He asked.

"They send me samples." Briony replied. "But let's hope there aren't any live ones in this sector."

"Hmm....If I see one, I'll shoot it just for you....But I better get back to my route, see you at 1100." Nilson walked out of the lab, and looked out the massive viewport in front of him. "Wow. Look at that sunrise."

"This IS my signature."

The briefing from Cody ended. In his arrogance, Gustavo proceeded alone into the unknown, menacing corridors of the facility. Everything was dark and quiet. He even heard someone murmur something about a sunrise.

Re: RPG: In Space No One Can Hear You Scream - SW vs Aliens

((We should make the clone commandos all apart of one squadron.))

Jag looked for his squad the only other RC's on this mission.  He found the others and they discussed the mission.
"We are to get in throw, grab one of these bugs, and get out," he told them, "And for you that were at Geonosis, yes, more bugs."
He heard a few chuckles from the comlink.
"As I was saying, the bug is our number one priority, the troopers are responsible for the civs.  Any questions?"

Re: RPG: In Space No One Can Hear You Scream - SW vs Aliens

Name: Theta 1339  "Aden"
Rank: Corporal
Affiliation: Republic, Clone Army
Race: Human (cloned)
WoC (Primary): DC-17a Blaster Rifle (customized with a scope for better aim.)
WoC (Secondary): Merr-sonn Portable Missile System, usually carried strapped to his back.

Aden was late, as usual.  He could sleep through a war, and his alarm was nowhere near powerful enough to awaken him.  When he did get up, and by the time he suited up and made his way to the breifing room, his helmet's chronometer said that it was well past the briefing's end.  Once again, Aden missed his mission briefing.  Outside of the chamber, he saw his commander, Jag, standing by the entrance.  He walked over to him.
" You're late."  Jag wasn't surprised.  This was an everyday occurrance for them.
" I'm not even make up an excuse, sir.  I slept in again."
" Great.  I suppose you want me to give you a recap of the briefing, then."
" If it isn't too much trouble."
All official facade melted away right there and then.  Aden had known Jag all the way through their training, and had been assigned to his squad from the start.  They were good friends, regardless of Aden's shortcomings.  Jag went on to describe the mission.
" In a nutshell, we are instructed to infiltrate a facility containing a new species of alien, and bring back a sample.  They are hostile, so that is why we are being sent in, instead of a team of scientists.  Oh, and we'll be working alongside mercs."
" What?"
" The high command called them in.  No one is really happy about it, but we're soldiers.  We don't question orders; we just follow them."
With that, the two rejoined the remainder of their squad, as they prepared to take the shuttle to their attack cruiser.  Aden walked to his locker before they left, and liberated his deece and merr-sonn from the dark confines of the metal container.
" Looks like we're gonna see some actions boys," he told his weapons.
The squad boarded the shuttle, and took their first step to destiny.

Re: RPG: In Space No One Can Hear You Scream - SW vs Aliens

"That Aden," Jag thought to himself, "What a character."  As he boarded the Larty he looked back he savoured it, because it may be the last view of humanity he ever sees.

Re: RPG: In Space No One Can Hear You Scream - SW vs Aliens

(( I agree, I'll stick my character in with the other ARCs))

Aarcee sat in his private quarters putting on the rest of his newly issued armor. Plasteel was supposed to be more resilient to the xenomorphs deadly blood but he had his doubts.
Suddenly his COM chirped.
"2458 here." he said out of habit still fiddling with his guantlets, they just didn't feel right.
"Lt. this is Commander Cody." the COM replied.
"Yes sir!" Aarcee replied snapping to attention mostly out of hard drilled practice, even if the Commander couldn't see him.
"You're being reassigned. Theta squad is low on triggermen. I thought we could use someone like you."
"Sir yes sir!" Aarcee replied.
"Good. Theres a shuttle waiting in the hanger bay, I want you on it in 5 minutes. Understood LT?"
"Very good sir!"Aarcee replied grabbing his helmet. "I'll be there sir." he closed the comlink and slinged his DC-15 over his shoulder. He also strapped his pistol belt securely around his Kama.
Aarcee walked briskly towards the hanger bay and the waiting shuttle. He showed a gaurd trooper his ID and was saluted thru the door. The latty was sitting on the pad, it's engines hot.
Aarcee ducked thru the low door. Several other ARC commandos were seated inside. He quickly grabbed the closest seat and strapped in.

Re: RPG: In Space No One Can Hear You Scream - SW vs Aliens

Rolland's ship cruised along side a latty full of republic troopers, all headed to their destination. His knuckles were white inside his plasteel casing, in fevered anticipation of the extermination of more Xenomorphs.

Re: RPG: In Space No One Can Hear You Scream - SW vs Aliens

((They are launching into space))

Aden looked out through the viewport, at the countless stars streaming past.  The sight never failed to impress him.  Mentally pulling himself back to the matter at hand, he adjusted the scope on his deece, and checked his Merr-Sonn.  This was the fifth time that he had done so.  He was always overly official before facing certain death.  A textbook trooper.  Aden looked over at his squad-mates.  There was Jag farther up, and that new addition, the one that had just been assigned to the squad.  He obviously had been issued that new plasteel armour.  Yet another thing that Aden had missed.  He would have to keep on his toes if he wanted to survive.
Soon, the shuttle docked with the attack cruiser, and the airlock opened, admitting the troops to the interior of the behemoth.

Re: RPG: In Space No One Can Hear You Scream - SW vs Aliens

"Ready di'kute?"  He realized maybe he shouldn't have said that in front of the new guy, Aercee, he said.  He saw him shift uncomfortably, Jag never was a good social person. 
"Erm... check your weapons and all stuff.   And Aercee come on over here I want to have a word with you."

Re: RPG: In Space No One Can Hear You Scream - SW vs Aliens

Name: Briony Calais
Occupation: Lab Tech
Species: Human
Location: E34-JC

Briony let out a deep sigh as Nilson left the room. She was tired and sick of analysising xenomorph blood samples. She hadn't been allowed into the actual holding facility for over two months. The fact worried her. The station had originally brought in 20 head of cattle to incubate the alien embryos. When Briony had last visited they were down to two cows, yet she had received four new face-hugger samples. It didn't take a mathematician to see that the numbers didn't work out.

The station held over 300 people and Briony knew of one fatality recently. One of the Mechanical Engineers had sustained massive injuries when a crane had dropped heavy equipment on him accidentially. The man's legs had been crushed terribly. He'd been taken to the Infirmary but was later reported dead from a blood clot in the brain.

Briony was starting to wonder if he really died. Perhaps he had been taken to the breeding chamber. It would explain a lot. But it didn't make Briony feel particularly comfortable.

Re: RPG: In Space No One Can Hear You Scream - SW vs Aliens

Lt. Aarcee read over the briefing on his HUD one last time. As an officer he wanted to make sure he knew what he was getting into. He was suddenly jerked from his concentration as another trooper spoke to him.
"Ready di'kute?"  he said. Aarcee frowned slightly. The troopers ID tagged flashed in front of his eyes.  Theta 4565  "Jag" it read. He wasn't quite used to the Theta squad ways yet. His old squad always addressed him as Lt. or sir. That is before they were all wiped out during a raid on a Sep capital ship. He had managed to drag his seargent to safety, only for him to die several minutes later before he could be put in the bacta tank. The memory of that mission still haunted him. Why should he be allowed to live when his brothers died before his very eyes? His leadership was never questioned by the high command, but that didn't stop him from questioning himself. This was a dangerous mission. The death ratio was slightly higher then he was comfortable with.
Aarcee shook his head to clear the dark thoughts. He had to keep his cool. He didn't want the Theta boys to think he was soft.
"Erm... check your weapons and all stuff.   And Aercee come on over here I want to have a word with you." Jag spoke again. Aarcee closed the HUD window and released his seat harness. The rumble of the Latty's engines trembled thru his boots. The interior was a faint red. Aarcee shouldered his carbine and approached the blue glow from Jag's T visor. He took a seat next to him.
"Yeah? What is it trooper?" Aarcee said strapping himself in once more.

Re: RPG: In Space No One Can Hear You Scream - SW vs Aliens

Grov sat at the controls of the Phantom's Revenge floating in Coruscanti space. He had been hired by the Republic to recover an alien species from the laboratories of E34-JC. He had been grouped with several mercenaries and clone troopers. Uneasiness had been sown into the bottom of his stomach and he wanted to get this mission over with. He didn't want to spend too much time with this new creature an find out any of its abilities. He just wanted to go in, get the beast, and get out.

"Sorry about that comment.  I'm not really a people person, more of a shut up and shoot.  You see me and Aden were vat brothers there you used to two others but some reason something went wrong with their vat and we've been bouncing here and there and all this moving around has made us really close and we trade banter like that back and forth.  But it's all friendly stuff you know?  So I guess well either get used to it or well, you could leave?"

"I don't think I'll be going anywhere anytime soon." Aarcee replied studying Jag. "Even if I wanted to leave."
Jag sorta cocked his head in confusion.
"I'm kidding." Aarcee replied. "You know a joke? Nevermind. I'm sure I'll get used to it, Fierfek, I might even start to enjoy it. Now if we could get off this damn thing and get down to business I'm sure we'd adapt to one another very quickly. Funny thing how flying laser bolts and explosions can make a man oh so brotherly."
