Ok, I moved this to the projects corner for a reason. I'm picking this back up at last, and I have some things to mention as well.
I have the concept worked out quite well now. It'll cover a large time span, with a few years between each session. Basically, at the start, humanity is just trying to walk for the first time when it comes to space travel (Efficient space travel, that is, much unlike what WE have now). from this point on, the story will keep advancing in time, steadily. I haven't worked out exactly how long each session will take, but I guess that's something that comes into play as we progress. Basically, each session, I will sketch the situation a bit, and what's wrong with it. It's up to you to solve it in whatever way you damn hell please, but I'll be steering you just slightly, you won't even notice it if you take action rationally.
I will not be taking part directly in the RP. It's sad, because I would have really wanted to, but I really should be in the position of the narrator for this one. And since I am in the position of narrator, taking part in the RP as well suddenly becomes very empty. (because I know exactly what's going to happen)
The entire 'story' (you could see yourself as a main character in a science fiction book) is set in a world that I am currently still busy making, (This is a very time consuming process, sadly...) and it will be set in a solar system with a diversity of planets and moons. I'll describe each planet in detail, and I'll try to make up a history that will make each planet unique. (I strongly reccomend using the background I provide in the creation of your character, as it will make it much easier to RP your rol.) I didn't describe any of the moons so far, as I am still in doubt of leaving them as lumbs of rock circling around a planet, or actually giving them a function/story. Most likely they'll be used as military practise grounds, but I'm not sure.
Don't post any charaacter details yet, as I am going on vacation soon and it's nowhere near completion yet. I'll try to post the correct format for you to use before I go away, so you can create it while I am away.
A breakdown of things I still have to do and have done:
Creation of the world 2/6
Rough sketch of the solar system - Done
Rough timeline of major events - Done
Rough description of the terraforming process of each planet - 60%
Brief history of 'the empire that has yet to be named' - 0%
Brief history of each planet - 0%
In depth history of the home planet - 0%
Starting the damn thing
Who's in and who's not.
Session 1 story arc - The idea is there, though unrefined
Session 2 story arc - 0%
Session 3 story arc - 0%
And... yeah. That concludes the most time consuming part of the project: Determining what's to be done, how to do it, and what I want for a result.
