In the 1950's, United States naval vessels rushed to a relatively unknown island in the northern Atlantic, well within the arctic circle. Soviet Union vessels soon followed, but when they arrived, for one of the first times in the Cold War, the sides both decided to blockade the island. Soon, researchers and reporters investigating the island began to mysteriously say that there was no cause for alarm relating to it, and it was for routine training. 

Soon, the island began to disappear from cultural memory, possibly to never be heard of again. 

However, in the year 2024, a Swedish fishing boat's lone occupant swore to have seen a massive sea monster rise through the thick mist around the island. She was generally discredited publicly, but major world governments soon grew uneasy. 

On February 8th 2024, a party flew by way of helicopter to the island and were only told to investigate, quote, "unusual wildlife activity pertaining to crustaceans, molluscs, arachnids, avians, and potentially mammals" It was top secret, and some members of the expedition fear it to be some type of clandestine espionage mission. But if you've guessed by now that something very strange was happening on the island, you would be right. 

The party of helicopters landed in the centre of the island and set up a base. And then the story began...

What Slot are They Filling:

2) Avoid any kind of stock characters or cliches, please.

3 Try to make the cast of characters as interesting and diverse as you can.

4) For the second question on the charrie sheet, see below. Say helicopter number and the number of their prompt in the helicopter. 

5) Up to 3 people, but only 1 main character or villain. You can create more if a second or third wave of supplies and characters joins the story.

SV= Secondary Villian 

Helicopter 1: 

-1 MC. Final year biotechnology student. Socialist activist. Lives in London.

If I somehow manage to fill up these 16 slots, there is a 5th helicopter that will arrive during the story so you can always join that if you miss these.  


Hopefully this makes sense! As always ask me if you have any questions!

Wow, cool! Could I reserve the SC for Heli two, the general? OR if that is taken than the SC for Heli one, who likes birds and is a world traveller.

Name: Kiana Santos 

Age: 19

What Slot are They Filling: SC 2 - Helicopter 1

Gender and Pronouns: Female; she/her

Appearance: Kiana is Brazilian, and therefore has the dark skin and hair characteristic of her nationality. Her hair is cut in a chin-length bob; it's curly and requires a lot of product to not look absurdely messy. She's short and stocky, and wears light (white or tan), button-up shirts, tall brown lace-up boots, leather, almost elbow-length gloves, and loose cameo pants. She has brown eyes.

Personality: Kiana is the one who will stay to the back of a crowd and listen to what everyone else is saying, taking careful note of it. She's adventerous and interested in learning everything she can about anything she comes across - this can lead to recklessness, as she also has an independent streak that leads her to separate from traveling companions and has gotten her lost more than once. She's very passionate about the things she's interested in, mainly birds and photography, and will quickly correct anyone that she knows is wrong.

Possessions Brought: Her trusty camera; a backpack; spare clothes; toiletries; various bird food; cell phone; a number of books on birds and a few novels; and her macaw, Pepper.

Fears, especially of animals: She likes pretty much all animals, but can recognize which ones are dangerous (and will be reasonably afraid of those). Terrified of vampire bats. Also not fond of needles.

Other: Aro/ace

Great character, I don't really have any questions! Just one thing, if you wouldn't mind, could you just talk about the macaw's personality and appearance a little bit? Just anything major so I can describe it a bit better. 

Thanks for submitting, the character is really detailed and well done!

Fair warning I am posting this before the majority of the comments so far have been loaded, only Agent Winter reserving H. 4 #4 and tops, but as some people have expressed concern that they might make a character and not have seen the reservation comment before them, I have some rules and fine-tuning specifications for the characters.

1) If you make a charrie and someone reserves it but that comment loads, your character stays and the reserved person must find a new one because I don't want to turn away full characters as sometimes people reserve and sadly never post. Now, if you see or know that someone has reserved, this doesn't apply of course.  

2) Only reserve if you intend to make the character eventually. So if you reserve and then don't interact for a few days, such as ask questions or give a reason why you might have to post later, then I will give the character to someone else if it is an MC or important SC. If you are going to be without wifi or have to wait, please let me know. I can also delay the entry of your character, as there will be more groups/helicopters of character arriving later, and your character can be on one of the later ones. 

3) There is a possibility that I may ask you questions or ask for you to augment or alter your character's sheet. I want the very best character I can for this so I can have a story with rich characters. Please keep that in mind, and having fewer characters might be easier because you can make each one better. 

4) As new character prompts come up, please give priority to people without characters who have followed the plot and wish to join, and people without MCs. If you have one of the 4 main characters, including the main villain, these characters will probably be edited/critiqued the most so I make sure I am having the very best characters running the story.

Thank you for your time and patience reading this admittedly long post, I've got a really cool story planned and cannot wait to start!

Name: Karl Thurnson

Age: (18-22): 20? Final year of college.
What Slot are They Filling: Heli 1, 1 MC. But, could I add that they have a degree in zoology? Fine either way.

Gender and Pronouns: M, He/Him.

Appearance: He's very Norse-looking, with plae skin and blue eyes, but his mom was native american, so he has dark hair. He wears his hair long, not bothering to tie it in any way.

Personality: Flip-de-flop. Um, he's quite vain, and adventurous, and is fiercly loyal. However, he also falls into a beserker rage when angry, and as he's not strong, it does not end well.

Possessions Brought: A bunch of books, his toiletries, a satellite phone, a machete, a notebook, a camera, and a sketchpad.

Fears, especially of animals: He's arachnaphobic, and he's abibliophobic

Oooh, great character! Just a few things, I would like an idea of what kinds of clothes he might wear, so I can be able to picture him a little bit better. Another thing, could you maybe give me an exact age? And finally can you flesh out the personality just a bit more, I have a good first impression but are there some more detailed points that I could maybe use? 

I'm so glad that you submitted a character and I cannot wait to get started!
