Rated M: Gore, Horror violence, horrifying imagery, dark atmosphere, shit your pants scary [I hope], blood, and lots and lots of motherfucking swearing
You know, out there, in all that space debris, in all that space dust. Out there somewhere, in the big vast sky. Out there in the big, expansive universe, past everything we know. Is a world of unknown. Are we ready to embark in that world? If we barely even understand our own world. We were just idiots, perhaps fools, to have dried up all our resources before we even got the chance to explore the unknown of our world. We endangered species and wiped out others before we even knew they were endangered or extinct. If we barely understood, if we were fools in evolution and creation once. Do you think that we will live those same repeated mistakes? How are we ready for the unknown, if we destroyed the unknown before we knew it was known?

*Scott: I don't understand what your problem is Tom
Tom: It's not just My problem Scott-It's everyone's problem. We can't just go along the way we are. What makes us think we can strip-mine planets to their cores? Or harvest whole species to extinction? Or transform entire ecosystems to suit our whims?
Scott: Be Realistic, Tom--Everyone knew Earth's resources wouldn't last forever. What are we supposed to do, ignore the other resources available to us because a million years from now they Might Be of some us to an emerging life form?
[Muffled Sounds of talking]
Scott: ...As I was saying, do we just tell everyone 'Hey show's over everything we need is on this other planet over here--but we can't use any of it because it rightfully belongs to the single cell organism that live there?
Tom: You're taking this argument to a ridiculous extreme
Scott: No, I'm not. I'm just pointing out how irrational it is to compartmentalize your ethics, Tom
Scott: It's wrong to harvest Dolphins because they're intelligent creatures--but it's okay to eat Chickens because they only have a brain the size of a pea?
Scott: Ultimately Every distinction is subjective and any line you draw is artificial. Who's to say what potential lies within a Chicken--or Even its Egg?
Tom: That's exactly my point, Scott
Scott: Except you're forgetting one thing, Tom, we're all living creatures and all life is a struggle--no matter where you or anyone else may wish to draw the line, it still, ends up as Darwin's 'Survival of the Fittest'
Tom: Darwin never said 'Survival of the Fittest', Scott, that was an oversimplification that was used to sell his theory to the public.
Tom: What you're talking about is Manifest Destiny.
Scott: You can call it whatever you want, Tom.
Scott: The fact remains that if the Human race Needs to do something to survive--and the lower orders Don't have the power to Stop us--we'll prevail. It's not right or wrong--it's just the way things are.

Commercial Ship Lecter.....Lost....|
Were we just idiots? Were we simply fools? Prometheus, Riyishi, LV-426. So much loss. So much death. Out there was a graveyard of the people we lost, ships we lost. Did we simply not care? How had we not learned our lesson? Why would we send another ship out there into the unknown? An unknown we could not tame, yet we would try to understand it, simply due to human ignorance and pride. Did we think we could tame it this time?
There seemed to be an ignorant amount of human mistakes floating out there or buried into the dust of other planets. Yet, we looked upon those mistakes as not human error, it was all just a series of unfortunate events. We are idiotic to believe that this was not a mistake on humanity, simply a minor setback. Back there is no hope for Earth. They sent another ship to explore deeper into this unknown world. Blindly dive into a scope of life and death. In another unknown, untamed wild. And we still do not know what happened. We will embark once again, in an eight man team on the Destiny-F56V, to the planet Cordelia, the moon of Kailana.
Follow all of RPAs rules, I don't feel like I have to explain myself on this one, you were all ask to read them beforehand and agree to them when registered.
So a side note, I am taking some creative liberties in this RP, as you know there is no moon named Cordelia in the universe, nor a planet called Kailana. However, they will be used for this RP.
Please Communicate With Me. I understand things can happen. I can understand when people have to work go out and do other things. But If you Do Not Communicate These Things To Me, I am not going to be able to read your mind. By signing up this RP you are giving your word, you will be Actively Communicative with your fellow RP Members and GM
GM word is Law
I Do Not have a Post Count. Make sure You can At least spare the time to write at least two paragraphs Once a week. This RP pace will be determined on the activity of the members. Faster if everyone is interested in going. Slower if members are slower.
No God Modding
You will be Allowed Up to Characters. However. Your second Character will be a backup, who will be written in as a Stasis character. We will have frozen sleeping second characters in their cabins. Remember Your Characters CAN and Will Most Likely Die.
Otherwise despite all those heavy handed rules, Please Enjoy Yourself, That's the Fun Part, and Please Have creativity with the genre.
The CastI will most likely be playing the elements, events, the Xenomorphs, and all the background stuff. Do not worry about that. I am accepting Eight Characters into this RP.
Some Background information, during your 20 day journey to the planet and you're still on course the Captain died of illness.
There is Two of Mostly Each Job
*Bio Research: You are a scientist, one of the best, chosen to explore the flora and fauna of Cordelia.
*Guards: Self explanatory, you guys are the ones with the most militant training. Though it should be noted most of you are hired and paid Space Mercs.
*Geo Research: Instead of exploring the flora and fauna, you explore rock formations, create maps, navigate the planet, etc.
