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...

Yeah, that would be great!

Okay, I may have exaggerated slightly. Most of the people have been taken, however according to my notes, there is one background character military guard open now, on Heli 3, person one, an MC, the technology specialist for the operation, the main villain Industrial spy on heli 2, and the secondary villain and mc detective on heli 4. Apart from the military guard, I really want all of these characters to fill out. Sorry, my explanation was poor early I was stuck on a phone and couldn't really edit. 

So if you are joining now and want to make a character the villian and two mcs are some of the few options as well as hugely important characters. My notes could be incorrect, so if you have reserved or made one of those feel free to let me know but other than that I hope that we can get these filled. Sorry for the confusion!

Since June dropped out, if you want me to create 1V from Heli 2, I can (try) doing that along with the 2 BC characters I reserved...

(I'm really really really bad at developing villains though....)

Yeah, if you want. That said, I don't need a high level of finish on the guards really since they aren't plot drivers. If you want you can kind of make the two BCs shallow and devote most of your energy to the villain, though I am sure that eventually, we will get all the spots filled. Just put your character building effort into the characters you can picture most. There's also the police officer and technology person, I believe if you don't want to do a villain.

Oh could I reserve the police officer? Hopefully if I get school done before I have to go and babysit, I’ll post my General earlier this evening then the police officer. Is that ok?

I'm sorry i didn't see this. I have given away the police detectives but the tech specialist is open if you want an mc, i believe.

submitted by Ella/Gared
(November 21, 2018 - 3:36 pm)

Actually the tech specialist is taken.

submitted by Ella
(November 21, 2018 - 3:58 pm)

Ahhh I was going to make a character yesterday as promised, but things got busy. I'll reserve the MC in heli 4. I'm not sure if the survivalist in heli 4 is still available? If so, then I will reserve that too. 

The charrie sheet should be filled out pronto! I love your story plot so far, Ella.

@Ashlee unless I'm deluded, I think I have the survivalist. Sorry!

I think soren reserved just before you... Maybe you could work something out if you have started or do one of the villains. Or if you want I can have a duo of police officers. The last one could be cool. Yeah i will go with that. I'm adding a second police detective MC.

I'm not sure. However there will be people up for grabs when the reservations expire. So you can wait until tonight and I will let everyone know.

If no one wants it, i'll take the tech specialist in heli 3. If anyone wants it, ignore this sheet.
