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...

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!

I'd like to reserve one of the BC Military guards in helicopter 3, and the SC Hunter Heli 4.

Name: Riley Anderson 

Age: (18-22): 21

What Slot are They Filling: Heli. 4 P4. 

Gender and Pronouns: Female, she/her

Appearance: Tall, athletic, with short hair that has blue and purple highlights and falls over one eye. She has one blue eye and one blind eye from an incident she doesn't talk about. (Ella/Gared, you can come up with this incident if you want to.) Her hair falls over her blind eye. She wears a black tank top with an olive-drab military jacket over it, with cargo pants and worn camouflage combat boots that have duct tape on them in various places. 

Personality: She has a temper and gets very violent when she's angry, and acts extremely brave and sometimes a little rebellious because that's how she wants people to see her. She's secretly very insecure, anxious, and kind of depressed, though she hardly ever shows that side of her. Chaotic good.

Possessions Brought: In her backpack, she's carrying her phone, a sketchbook and two mechanical pencils, earbuds (she listens to music when she's upset), her journal, a plush toy cat named Daisy (this is concealed underneath the other things in the backpack) and a water bottle. She also brought a pocket knife (strapped to her boot).

Fears, especially of animals: She doesn't show her fear, but she's claustrophobic, arachnophobic, acrophobic, as well as afraid of being betrayed (this could also be from her past, but I'm horrible at coming up with backstories).

Other: open to shipping.

Oh very cool! Great character. I like the weaknesses, they definitely balance her out.

So I think soren and Joan have both reserved the heli 4 p 3. I believe soren reserved first so Joan could you please choose a new one? There are still 2 main characters unreserved/made.

Oh, ok! I didn't see that Soren already reserved that character, so no biggy. 

I guess I'll also take the second guard then, BC Heli 2 P3. (I think that's what it was...)

So I reserve both spots of the military guards.  

Is it ok that once I create the character sheets for both of them that they're siblings?

You can reserve those 2, but please consider a villain or MC for your 3rd charrie.

What do you mean by that? 

Because I think there is only one character left....?

I belive that nobody had reserved the villains, the police detective, the survivalist, and I think the third military guard. However I'm on a phone away from my plans so its very possible I'm forgetting something or am thinking of character prompts I haven't released yet, but I will look through my notes and get a definite list tonight so please excuse any mistakes in the meanwhile.

Well, I just spent an hour on my charrie sheet... and it all got deleted. I'm really, really sad right now. Wow. Well, I guess I will get to it tomorrow. I don't know.. I'll get back to you soon but I'd really appreciate it if I could have a little more time for my reserve..

Yeah of course. I don't expect this to start for at least a week, and you can keep your reservation as long as you don't just dissapear. It is really frustrating to lose writing on CB for sure!

So I love the interest in my story but I would prefer that people selected more mcs and villains. If you want I can switch and make some of the secondary charries more important if there isn't interest in my original people. Hopefully I can learn what types of characters people are interested in to make the next wave of helicopters more interesting.

Uh, I could make an MC if you want me to. I'm bad at coming up with villains that aren't cheesy, or I would do one of them.
