Colony builder:

Earth is doomed. Sign of alien life had at last been detected. However that detection was of a massive asteroid being pulled by a solar sail towards earth.

As expected this did not really thrill the populace in general with the the whole imminent death and all.

With an estimated 16 months before impact the goverments went together to create arks. Meant to take the best and brightes. The healthiest and most diverse of mankind to new worlds. Equipped with the most advanced technology of 2047. An advanced SI, genetic labs equipped with embryos and incubators, Suspended animation tubes to keep the crew and populace of 50 dormant for the journey and most of them for the early stages of the colony. Weapons were added with the realisation of the existance of outside threats. Massdrivers and lasers on the arks and Lasers, explosives, coilguns and Oh so many non-lethal weapons in the ark armoury.

The project did not go flawlessly and conflicts arose regarding who would send how many people on the arks and it all came to a point with the nuclear annihilation of Brazil when they held one of the launch sites hostage.

But as the asteroid approached the arks streaked out to solar systems deemed potentially life-sustaining. 6 Arks in all driven by solar sails and Ion engines.

After 43 years of travel the ark is waking up the necessary crew to prepare for landing. Contact with all other Arks has been lost. Wether it's due to catastrophy, equipment failure, distance or something else is unknown.

You are the crew. Thoroughly vetted and choosen for your ability to fill an important role on this new colony. (I won't accept lolrandom characters. they have to have a chance of getting on the ark).

First we vote on:

1. What kind of planet is it?

A. Frozen planet.

B. Arid planet.

C. Barren planet.

D. Volcanic planet.

E. Oceanic planet.

F. Desert planet.

All of these planets ARE possible to have a colony on and have different advantages and disadvantages. if there is life on them is unknown.

2. the arks had slightly different focuses to try to get atleast one to survive. what was the focus of this one?

A. Military.

B. Genetics.

C. Industry.

D. Botaniy.

E. Zoology.

F. Academia.

3. Who is captain?

4. Who is Head of security?

5. Who is chief engineer?

Each turn you roll 2d100 for actions and if you have 1 of the superior positions you can roll a 3rd d100 to do an action in that area.

the success scale is 50+ success with potentially MASSIVE bonuses and penalties to the action. The goal is to make it a somewhat realistic simulation of the success rate of a person with your training and abilities.

for example a person shooting a rifle at 30 meters range with a little bit of trainig at a target would get +-0. while someone with NO TRAINING at all would probably get something like -30 or 40.

Think through your actions. Interact with eachother and be reasonable. Nobody wants to die because nobody wanted to repair the air-scrubbers.

Before the world was threatened with apocalypse, Amari had just finished her third degree. Some would have called her a professional alumni, dedicated more to theory than to practice. She had majored first in Biology, then Paleobotany, and lastly a custom major she referred to as "Xenology", but which most preferred to call "theoretical biophysics". The coursework revolved around speculation, to be sure, but Amari insisted it was based within core biological fact. Her theories on the origins of life are somewhat controversial, pointing to the many asteroids and comets that impacted earth in its formative years, leading to the first bacterial life. The correspondent to Earth life, she said, was somewhere out there in the stars. Her academic success also lead to positions as president of the Student Scientist Union and later the Alumni Organization of Boston University. Her talent for managing groups was remarkable, and won her some local fame for the organizations' works.

Then the asteroid came, and Earth looked to the stars for its future survival. If colonies were to survive on alien worlds, they would need people with an understanding of alien life. Fortunately for Amari, her renown won her a place upon an ark ship, someone who could study and monitor the conditions of their new world. The thought of an alien paradise, untouched by human hands, excited Amari. She would finally get to observe the principles of xenology with real, tangible evidence, and could prove her theory correct!

Most remarkably of all, Amari was chosen to LEAD the expedition as captain! She was uncertain if she was worthy of the role, but the administrators told her that the ship's SI would handle most of the day-to-day relegating. She would just be in managing personnel and making the final call on decisions. Still trepidatious, Amari agreed. Anything to get the chance to explore new worlds. Perhaps under her leadership, humanity could make use of its second chance, and treat this planet better than they had treated Earth. It was unlikely others would have the same respect for nature that she did, but she had to try. What else was this expedition than a trial in hope?

Character:

Name: Yuri Kuznetsov

Fluff: The last great pilot of the Reformed Soviet States of Communist Powers (RSSCP) Yuri was trained on the only "prototype" model ark, and as such was one of the few people to have adept experience flying one of these beasts. Yuri, as a astronaut, was well acquainted with space, and in a joint UN mission had flown as far as Titan, and even walked upon its alien surface. Obsessed with space from a young age, Yuri was not as surprised as many others on Earth when the first sign of intelligent alien life appeared several AU's from Earth, and even less surprised that it was hostile. The universe was a hostile place, much like the very world that humanity evolved on. Such hostile environments necessitated the utilization of scarce resources for survival, and when more then one party, or even others in the same party, desired the same resources, conflict occurred. If everyone you met was more preoccupied with their own survival (which they should be, evolution and instincts ensured that) why would you even give peace a chance? Better to wipe them out when they least suspect it and keep yourself alive and safe. That being said, he still hated them for it, but at the same time relished the chance to finally leave Earth behind and explore the stars, beyond the bounds of this solar system, and maybe even touch foot on alien worlds, and make them a new home for humanity. When Yuri was selected for the Ark Initiative, he was slightly surprised, but very hopeful and excited. Even moreso when he found out that he was to be trained on how to pilot on of these massive ships, the first of their kind ever built by mankind. As an astronaut he was able to skip most of the initial training stages of both survival and piloting, but like many others had to sit through the very rushed but massive courses on all of the new cutting edge technology that made the Arks tick. When he was merely an astronaut, and not one of the last, best hopes for mankind, Yuri specialized in chemistry, more specifically as an organic chemist. Yuri was also picked for another reason, the path he followed before he became a spaceman. Yuri spent 3 years in the Russian military, as a test pilot of the last great jet fighters of the Soviet Air-force, and 2 before that as a conscript in the 4th Chechnyan War. He could handle himself, he had his whole life, from the trenches outside of Grozny to the Methane lakes of Titan.

Fluff: Oliver was always inspired by the stars and a huge technophile. Even as a child he was able to reprogram basic robots to due much more complex tasks and as he got older was able to make many modifications to them. When his talent was recognized he was able to get into university at the age of 12 and had spent 10 years claiming degree after degree in things like computers, robotics, ships, materials, and cybernetics, ballistics, etc… During this time he made many minor improvements to things, but never created anything truly unique. When he heard about the asteroid about to hit earth he immediately volunteered to help design and build the arks that could be humanity's only hope.

In youth he was not particularly smart, but through hard work and passion Gabriel was able to make the most of what he had and eventually achieved his dreams.

Despite his struggles getting into the field he wished to, Gabriel improved as a Doctor over the years with experience and soon become rather knowledgeable. He had never expected that he would reach the level of work he had when he started, but when it was announced that the world would end Gabriel was picked out among many for his talents and effort.

Taking all the hours he could in college he quickly gained a doctorate in robotics and did research on nanorobotics and their use in manufacturing. In the following years he joined his friend in starting a manufacturing company using methods he devised, sadly the nanorobotics were still too archaic to be used effectively. Yuri researched into materials, chemistry, and a tad bit into engineering to help and soon many products had the Arcadia Manufacturing Co. stamp on them. Some would call Yuri 'obsessed', especially those that knew he did experiments in his free time, but Yuri likes to call himself 'dedicated'. When it was found the world was going to end Yuri was nearly instantly brought on the ark as a scientist and back up engineer, as well as aiding in the programming of the ship's SI.

"'Ahem, ah… Attention, Staff and Crew of the Ark-2 Preservatory Vessel. This is your Captain, Dr. Amari Umberman, speaking. I hope you've all had a pleasant sleep. We have a lot of work ahead of us though, and I need everyone doing what they're supposed to. If everyone could check in at the nearest comm station with your name, rank and station, we can get started. Uh, thank you."'

Fluff: Oliver was always inspired by the stars and a huge technophile. Even as a child he was able to reprogram basic robots to due much more complex tasks and as he got older was able to make many modifications to them. When his talent was recognized he was able to get into university at the age of 12 and had spent 10 years claiming degree after degree in things like computers, robotics, ships, materials, and cybernetics, ballistics, etc… During this time he made many minor improvements to things, but never created anything truly unique. When he heard about the asteroid about to hit earth he immediately volunteered to help design and build the arks that could be humanity's only hope.

Name: Jarred Leinos

Fluff: Jarred was a low ranking state diplomat who rose in ranks rapidly and became an ambassador for USA at Germany at the age of 22. It was soon found out that he advanced in ranks through blackmailing and manipulating holes in the system in a brilliant way, but not brilliant enough not to be discovered.

He was fired from his job as diplomat, but was secretly assigned to the CIA as an intelligence officer. He made fobidden connections with high ranking officers at the CIA and found out about the secret Ark project and managed to sneak his name into the waiting list.

He was very low on the list, there were 12 names on the list of personnel who should have come before him and get on that Ark.

Sadly, none of those 12 personnel could be found at the day of reckoning. With a lack of other choice, Jarred was called to the Ark and serve. His bag was already packed when the Ark representatives arrived, as if he knew that he was going to be picked…

Fluff: While not nearly as high flying and famous as the rest of the crew Anton is in charge of what he considers the most important part of the ship next to the life support systems, The Hydroponics bay. While the crew might be able to live on nutrient paste for a period they'd still need his systems to produce the water they drink and help convert excess CO2 back into clean oxygen and his expertise in interacting with any plant life the crew interacts with on wherever they land.

Not to say Anton is without accomplishments it's just that groundbreaking pharmaceutical research or being the source of a new kind of super high yield breed of bean sprout just doesn't get you in the newspaper headlines but it does get your file on the recruiters desk for a chance at being part of an ARK crew of scientists and engineers with the goal of keeping them all fed and watered and ensuring that any food production in the new world won't have everyone dead in a decade from mercury consumption because the plant that looks and tastes like a cucumber is inundated with the stuff.

Fluff: Born and raised in Germany, a boiling pot of many world cultures in the early 2020's, Emma found the human condition very interesting from a certain age. Her favourite childhood memories are of her and her father sitting on the curb outside an ice-creamery watching, people watching and analyzing the behaviour of all the passer bys. Mr. Braun, Emma's father, was a lecturer on Sociology and Psychology at the Freie Universität Berlin which is where she believes her interest in the interactions between people comes from. Her mother was an English teacher from Britain but she died when Emma was very young when an immigrant drove his car onto a sidewalk, striking and killing multiple people. At the age of 17, Emma was accepted into Columbia University on an international scholarship where she studied for 6 years before getting her PhD in Psychology. Before the launch of the Ark, Emma was the head of her field globally as a world renowned Psychiatrist, trying to find what makes a human "righteous" by global standards. Recently, she's turned her attention to SI, helping programmers with the decision making of a righteous intelligence. Her current goal is creating mankind's first artificial intelligence.

Physically, Emma is of average stature standing at 5'4. She's of a slim build with dark brown hair which contrasts against her fair skin. Her eyes are as big as saucers and are a vivid hazel. Most people would find her very conventionally attractive. Biologically, she is 25 years old.

Name: Jonas Barthule

Fluff: Jonas Barthule was once a simple man from the U.S. with an ordinary middle-class upbringing with a bachelor's degree in robotics and a mechanic's license in heavy machinery. This all changed once he was drafted to fight in the war against North Korea in 2031 as a pilot in the new Steel Legion program, which involved the use of warmechs - 10 foot tall powersuits built more like bipedal tanks but far more mobile and versatile, with interchangable weapons and parts to suit the job. Jonas emerged from the war as a distinguished war hero, being part of the operation that killed Kim Jong Un and won the war. He would serve in many later wars, from the many spats with the Islamic State to the Brazilian war before the departure, and in between he acted as a consultant in mech design, helping to design and test the first flight units for warmechs along with gradually making sleeker, less bulky units with greater range of motion and mobility without sacrificing protection or functionality. In recognition for his piloting skill and contributions to mechanized weapons technology, he was assigned a spot on an ark. Now his new mission is to help keep this crew safe by using not only his piloting skills but also by continuing to invent cutting-edge weapons with the materials he has to help defend against the aliens, and maybe someday to take the fight straight to the bastards.

Name: Gregor Adolf Furst

Fluff: Gregor was born in the United States to a rich family of noble descent. Before the Second World War, the family sold their estates to Hitler and moved to america to start a company. They quickly formed a multi millionaire company and bought their estates back a couple decades later. Born during a golden age of technological progress and into a rich family, Gregor was afforded most luxuries and took advantage of it, attending some of the best schools in the world. Born a second son and not really interested in the family business, Gregor focused on studying Exoplanetology for many years until something happened that changed his life forever. In a boardroom coup, Gregor's family was ousted from the company and soon after, his Father and Grandfather murdered and made to look like a suicide. Through the life insurance money, inheritance, and crafty investing by his older brother, they were able to keep the estates in Germany and stay afloat, but Gregor soon fell into depression. Gregor's hair turned from Pale Blonde to fully White from the trauma and after awhile of staying home, he turned to God. While continuing his previous courses in the Exoplanetological field, he started studies on theology as well and became part of a parish near Rome. His intelligence, money, and devotion to the church soon earned him the attention of The Vatican and he was invited to come study there. The Vatican's treasure trove of knowledge and thousands of years of discipline gave Gregor an even bigger advantage, allowing him to finish degrees years before at most other schools. Gregor's advances in the field enabled the discovery team to find the Asteroid before it was too late and he was put on the Ark Project in an advisory role. Though he doesn't know if the rest of his family was allowed onto the Arks, his intelligence and connection in the church secured him a spot on the Ark and he hopes to make the best of it to secure the existence of God's Children.

Character:

Name: Yuri Kuznetsov

Fluff: The last great pilot of the Reformed Soviet States of Communist Powers (RSSCP) Yuri was trained on the only "prototype" model ark, and as such was one of the few people to have adept experience flying one of these beasts. Yuri, as a astronaut, was well acquainted with space, and in a joint UN mission had flown as far as Titan, and even walked upon its alien surface. Obsessed with space from a young age, Yuri was not as surprised as many others on Earth when the first sign of intelligent alien life appeared several AU's from Earth, and even less surprised that it was hostile. The universe was a hostile place, much like the very world that humanity evolved on. Such hostile environments necessitated the utilization of scarce resources for survival, and when more then one party, or even others in the same party, desired the same resources, conflict occurred. If everyone you met was more preoccupied with their own survival (which they should be, evolution and instincts ensured that) why would you even give peace a chance? Better to wipe them out when they least suspect it and keep yourself alive and safe. That being said, he still hated them for it, but at the same time relished the chance to finally leave Earth behind and explore the stars, beyond the bounds of this solar system, and maybe even touch foot on alien worlds, and make them a new home for humanity. When Yuri was selected for the Ark Initiative, he was slightly surprised, but very hopeful and excited. Even moreso when he found out that he was to be trained on how to pilot on of these massive ships, the first of their kind ever built by mankind. As an astronaut he was able to skip most of the initial training stages of both survival and piloting, but like many others had to sit through the very rushed but massive courses on all of the new cutting edge technology that made the Arks tick. When he was merely an astronaut, and not one of the last, best hopes for mankind, Yuri specialized in chemistry, more specifically as an organic chemist. Yuri was also picked for another reason, the path he followed before he became a spaceman. Yuri spent 3 years in the Russian military, as a test pilot of the last great jet fighters of the Soviet Air-force, and 2 before that as a conscript in the 4th Chechnyan War. He could handle himself, he had his whole life, from the trenches outside of Grozny to the Methane lakes of Titan.

Your things are all stored in your cabin. After checking up on them you pull up the commlogs. The five other Arks at first sent regular reports. The first anomaly is from the Industrial ark where there was a critical failure in the suspended animation. Many died and the ships life support couldn't handle the stress from the survivors. The situation was dire when they stopped communicating. their current fate is unknown but presumed lost. After that the Arks dropped out one by one. The closest one, The military ark.

Name: Yuri Petrov PhD

Fluff: Yuri is a headstrong and focused man. Of Russian decent born in the United States Yuri was raised to study hard and learn. When he was young he learned to do basic programming to help teach his friends who were having trouble with classes, so he made simple games. This turned into a love of robotics in his high school years. Taking all the hours he could in college he quickly gained a doctorate in robotics and did research on nanorobotics and their use in manufacturing. In the following years he joined his friend in starting a manufacturing company using methods he devised, sadly the nanorobotics were still too archaic to be used effectively. Yuri researched into materials, chemistry, and a tad bit into engineering to help and soon many products had the Arcadia Manufacturing Co. stamp on them. Some would call Yuri 'obsessed', especially those that knew he did experiments in his free time, but Yuri likes to call himself 'dedicated'. When it was found the world was going to end Yuri was nearly instantly brought on the ark as a scientist and back up engineer, as well as aiding in the programming of the ship's SI.

Right. Shit. Now ideally this is the sort of information that wouldn't get out to panic the crew, but evidently Williams didn't think about that. Oh well, it's okay. It's alright. We're still here, we're going to survive. We'll set up a proper comms tower at the base, try to re-establish contact. And if that fails, well. Then it's just us out here.

1/2 - On that sobering thought, Amari sends a couple of surveillance drones out to investigate the 'bright spot'. Good or bad, they're better off knowing what it is.It could even be a better spot for them to land. Is there any energy output that would indicate inhabitance?

>>41644

>Name:

Amari Umberman

>Fluff:

Before the world was threatened with apocalypse, Amari had just finished her third degree. Some would have called her a professional alumni, dedicated more to theory than to practice. She had majored first in Biology, then Paleobotany, and lastly a custom major she referred to as "Xenology", but which most preferred to call "theoretical biophysics". The coursework revolved around speculation, to be sure, but Amari insisted it was based within core biological fact. Her theories on the origins of life are somewhat controversial, pointing to the many asteroids and comets that impacted earth in its formative years, leading to the first bacterial life. The correspondent to Earth life, she said, was somewhere out there in the stars. Her academic success also lead to positions as president of the Student Scientist Union and later the Alumni Organization of Boston University. Her talent for managing groups was remarkable, and won her some local fame for the organizations' works.

Then the asteroid came, and Earth looked to the stars for its future survival. If colonies were to survive on alien worlds, they would need people with an understanding of alien life. Fortunately for Amari, her renown won her a place upon an ark ship, someone who could study and monitor the conditions of their new world. The thought of an alien paradise, untouched by human hands, excited Amari. She would finally get to observe the principles of xenology with real, tangible evidence, and could prove her theory correct!

Most remarkably of all, Amari was chosen to LEAD the expedition as captain! She was uncertain if she was worthy of the role, but the administrators told her that the ship's SI would handle most of the day-to-day relegating. She would just be in managing personnel and making the final call on decisions. Still trepidatious, Amari agreed. Anything to get the chance to explore new worlds. Perhaps under her leadership, humanity could make use of its second chance, and treat this planet better than they had treated Earth. It was unlikely others would have the same respect for nature that she did, but she had to try. What else was this expedition than a trial in hope?

Character:

Name: Yuri Kuznetsov

Fluff: The last great pilot of the Reformed Soviet States of Communist Powers (RSSCP) Yuri was trained on the only "prototype" model ark, and as such was one of the few people to have adept experience flying one of these beasts. Yuri, as a astronaut, was well acquainted with space, and in a joint UN mission had flown as far as Titan, and even walked upon its alien surface. Obsessed with space from a young age, Yuri was not as surprised as many others on Earth when the first sign of intelligent alien life appeared several AU's from Earth, and even less surprised that it was hostile. The universe was a hostile place, much like the very world that humanity evolved on. Such hostile environments necessitated the utilization of scarce resources for survival, and when more then one party, or even others in the same party, desired the same resources, conflict occurred. If everyone you met was more preoccupied with their own survival (which they should be, evolution and instincts ensured that) why would you even give peace a chance? Better to wipe them out when they least suspect it and keep yourself alive and safe. That being said, he still hated them for it, but at the same time relished the chance to finally leave Earth behind and explore the stars, beyond the bounds of this solar system, and maybe even touch foot on alien worlds, and make them a new home for humanity. When Yuri was selected for the Ark Initiative, he was slightly surprised, but very hopeful and excited. Even moreso when he found out that he was to be trained on how to pilot on of these massive ships, the first of their kind ever built by mankind. As an astronaut he was able to skip most of the initial training stages of both survival and piloting, but like many others had to sit through the very rushed but massive courses on all of the new cutting edge technology that made the Arks tick. When he was merely an astronaut, and not one of the last, best hopes for mankind, Yuri specialized in chemistry, more specifically as an organic chemist. Yuri was also picked for another reason, the path he followed before he became a spaceman. Yuri spent 3 years in the Russian military, as a test pilot of the last great jet fighters of the Soviet Air-force, and 2 before that as a conscript in the 4th Chechnyan War. He could handle himself, he had his whole life, from the trenches outside of Grozny to the Methane lakes of Titan.

Name: Jonas Barthule

Fluff: Jonas Barthule was once a simple man from the U.S. with an ordinary middle-class upbringing with a bachelor's degree in robotics and a mechanic's license in heavy machinery. This all changed once he was drafted to fight in the war against North Korea in 2031 as a pilot in the new Steel Legion program, which involved the use of warmechs - 10 foot tall powersuits built more like bipedal tanks but far more mobile and versatile, with interchangable weapons and parts to suit the job. Jonas emerged from the war as a distinguished war hero, being part of the operation that killed Kim Jong Un and won the war. He would serve in many later wars, from the many spats with the Islamic State to the Brazilian war before the departure, and in between he acted as a consultant in mech design, helping to design and test the first flight units for warmechs along with gradually making sleeker, less bulky units with greater range of motion and mobility without sacrificing protection or functionality. In recognition for his piloting skill and contributions to mechanized weapons technology, he was assigned a spot on an ark. Now his new mission is to help keep this crew safe by using not only his piloting skills but also by continuing to invent cutting-edge weapons with the materials he has to help defend against the aliens, and maybe someday to take the fight straight to the bastards.

Skills: Operating (Superior), Engineering (Average), Shooting (Strong)

1-2: Jonas sets aside an empty place in the Robotics Bay to construct a weapons foundry/warmech hangar, or in his terminology, "The Office". The world below will likely be rife with danger, if not from the beasts and inhabitants then by the alien shitheads who will inevitably find us. With proper warmechs and armaments we'll be prepared to face such threats. The practical testing will have to wait until we reach the planetside, but for now the ship is thankfully equipped with ample supplies and equipment needed to get started.

Name: Gregor Adolf Furst

Fluff: Gregor was born in the United States to a rich family of noble descent. Before the Second World War, the family sold their estates to Hitler and moved to america to start a company. They quickly formed a multi millionaire company and bought their estates back a couple decades later. Born during a golden age of technological progress and into a rich family, Gregor was afforded most luxuries and took advantage of it, attending some of the best schools in the world. Born a second son and not really interested in the family business, Gregor focused on studying Exoplanetology for many years until something happened that changed his life forever. In a boardroom coup, Gregor's family was ousted from the company and soon after, his Father and Grandfather murdered and made to look like a suicide. Through the life insurance money, inheritance, and crafty investing by his older brother, they were able to keep the estates in Germany and stay afloat, but Gregor soon fell into depression. Gregor's hair turned from Pale Blonde to fully White from the trauma and after awhile of staying home, he turned to God. While continuing his previous courses in the Exoplanetological field, he started studies on theology as well and became part of a parish near Rome. His intelligence, money, and devotion to the church soon earned him the attention of The Vatican and he was invited to come study there. The Vatican's treasure trove of knowledge and thousands of years of discipline gave Gregor an even bigger advantage, allowing him to finish degrees years before at most other schools. Gregor's advances in the field enabled the discovery team to find the Asteroid before it was too late and he was put on the Ark Project in an advisory role. Though he doesn't know if the rest of his family was allowed onto the Arks, his intelligence and connection in the church secured him a spot on the Ark and he hopes to make the best of it to secure the existence of God's Children.

1. Fixing people is just as important as fixing broken down systems. Try to find a doctor willing to teach Shadoo some basics so in case they get sick or need operations he can deliver some basic assistance.

2. Run a last check on all systems before engaging in landing procedures. The start and landing of space vessels were some of the most dangerous maneuvers and could certainly put a strain on the ship's systems. Shadoo would ensure the ship was in perfect condition to go through with it.

Character:

Name: Yuri Kuznetsov

Fluff: The last great pilot of the Reformed Soviet States of Communist Powers (RSSCP) Yuri was trained on the only "prototype" model ark, and as such was one of the few people to have adept experience flying one of these beasts. Yuri, as a astronaut, was well acquainted with space, and in a joint UN mission had flown as far as Titan, and even walked upon its alien surface. Obsessed with space from a young age, Yuri was not as surprised as many others on Earth when the first sign of intelligent alien life appeared several AU's from Earth, and even less surprised that it was hostile. The universe was a hostile place, much like the very world that humanity evolved on. Such hostile environments necessitated the utilization of scarce resources for survival, and when more then one party, or even others in the same party, desired the same resources, conflict occurred. If everyone you met was more preoccupied with their own survival (which they should be, evolution and instincts ensured that) why would you even give peace a chance? Better to wipe them out when they least suspect it and keep yourself alive and safe. That being said, he still hated them for it, but at the same time relished the chance to finally leave Earth behind and explore the stars, beyond the bounds of this solar system, and maybe even touch foot on alien worlds, and make them a new home for humanity. When Yuri was selected for the Ark Initiative, he was slightly surprised, but very hopeful and excited. Even moreso when he found out that he was to be trained on how to pilot on of these massive ships, the first of their kind ever built by mankind. As an astronaut he was able to skip most of the initial training stages of both survival and piloting, but like many others had to sit through the very rushed but massive courses on all of the new cutting edge technology that made the Arks tick. When he was merely an astronaut, and not one of the last, best hopes for mankind, Yuri specialized in chemistry, more specifically as an organic chemist. Yuri was also picked for another reason, the path he followed before he became a spaceman. Yuri spent 3 years in the Russian military, as a test pilot of the last great jet fighters of the Soviet Air-force, and 2 before that as a conscript in the 4th Chechnyan War. He could handle himself, he had his whole life, from the trenches outside of Grozny to the Methane lakes of Titan.

1. Requisition several crawler drones and any crewmembers willing to assist and armor up the shuttle and the the less sturdy parts of the arks. As it sits this material is just taking up space on the ark and we should be able to strip and re-purpose it once we land.

2. Yuri would spend the latter part of the week plotting the best course for the ark to take through the atmosphere to land. Since the ship lacks any proper chemical engines and retrothrusters it would be difficult to slow the massive vessel down enough to land softly, so Yuri would find a ample stretch of water to "skip" the vessel across to afford it as soft of a landing as could be obtained. After slowing the vessel down enough, it should be able to "coast" to its planned landing site. Yuri would do this by plotting a course that would allow the captain to choose one of several of the already proposed landing sites.

Name: Yuri Petrov PhD

Fluff: Yuri is a headstrong and focused man. Of Russian decent born in the United States Yuri was raised to study hard and learn. When he was young he learned to do basic programming to help teach his friends who were having trouble with classes, so he made simple games. This turned into a love of robotics in his high school years. Taking all the hours he could in college he quickly gained a doctorate in robotics and did research on nanorobotics and their use in manufacturing. In the following years he joined his friend in starting a manufacturing company using methods he devised, sadly the nanorobotics were still too archaic to be used effectively. Yuri researched into materials, chemistry, and a tad bit into engineering to help and soon many products had the Arcadia Manufacturing Co. stamp on them. Some would call Yuri 'obsessed', especially those that knew he did experiments in his free time, but Yuri likes to call himself 'dedicated'. When it was found the world was going to end Yuri was nearly instantly brought on the ark as a scientist and back up engineer, as well as aiding in the programming of the ship's SI.

Name: Jonas Barthule

Fluff: Jonas Barthule was once a simple man from the U.S. with an ordinary middle-class upbringing with a bachelor's degree in robotics and a mechanic's license in heavy machinery. This all changed once he was drafted to fight in the war against North Korea in 2031 as a pilot in the new Steel Legion program, which involved the use of warmechs - 10 foot tall powersuits built more like bipedal tanks but far more mobile and versatile, with interchangable weapons and parts to suit the job. Jonas emerged from the war as a distinguished war hero, being part of the operation that killed Kim Jong Un and won the war. He would serve in many later wars, from the many spats with the Islamic State to the Brazilian war before the departure, and in between he acted as a consultant in mech design, helping to design and test the first flight units for warmechs along with gradually making sleeker, less bulky units with greater range of motion and mobility without sacrificing protection or functionality. In recognition for his piloting skill and contributions to mechanized weapons technology, he was assigned a spot on an ark. Now his new mission is to help keep this crew safe by using not only his piloting skills but also by continuing to invent cutting-edge weapons with the materials he has to help defend against the aliens, and maybe someday to take the fight straight to the bastards.

Name: Lawrence Craft

Fluff: Lawrence was a Logistician and Technical Engineer, and a member of the Human-Synthetic Ascension Movement. The Movement emphasized the use of cybernetic augmentations not merely to enhance the human body, but improve the human mind and allow it to interface directly with machines. For many years he devoted his life to studying and applying ways to integrate his own mind into computer systems, acting not through his body of flesh but through robots which were the new extensions of his mind. A man can only perform research with his two hands in one place at at time, but a man connected to a computer can research across different bodies in different places all at once.

As a Logistician and Technical Engineer, Lawrence spent a considerably amount of time preparing for this very event, using his brain augments to simulate highly accurate colony building scenarios and practice how to manage robots and resources in them.

Video games make it seem easy, when you need power, you build solar plants. When you need food, you build farms. But they leave out the most important details. What is the design of a solar plant, and how do you build it. What parts form it, how do you manufacture those parts. How do you manufacture the machine that makes those parts. What about the raw resources for them? How to find them, refine and use them? These are questions Lawrence has ensured he has the answer to, studying designs for parts replicators, assemblers, and advanced R&D and Construction robots.

His job here is to apply the designs from Earth's databanks into practical application via skillful control of robotics and advanced computer interface through cybernetic augments. He can speak to the AI on a level far beyond voice as others do, and see and work through the robots themselves.

Name: Gregor Adolf Furst

Fluff: Gregor was born in the United States to a rich family of noble descent. Before the Second World War, the family sold their estates to Hitler and moved to america to start a company. They quickly formed a multi millionaire company and bought their estates back a couple decades later. Born during a golden age of technological progress and into a rich family, Gregor was afforded most luxuries and took advantage of it, attending some of the best schools in the world. Born a second son and not really interested in the family business, Gregor focused on studying Exoplanetology for many years until something happened that changed his life forever. In a boardroom coup, Gregor's family was ousted from the company and soon after, his Father and Grandfather murdered and made to look like a suicide. Through the life insurance money, inheritance, and crafty investing by his older brother, they were able to keep the estates in Germany and stay afloat, but Gregor soon fell into depression. Gregor's hair turned from Pale Blonde to fully White from the trauma and after awhile of staying home, he turned to God. While continuing his previous courses in the Exoplanetological field, he started studies on theology as well and became part of a parish near Rome. His intelligence, money, and devotion to the church soon earned him the attention of The Vatican and he was invited to come study there. The Vatican's treasure trove of knowledge and thousands of years of discipline gave Gregor an even bigger advantage, allowing him to finish degrees years before at most other schools. Gregor's advances in the field enabled the discovery team to find the Asteroid before it was too late and he was put on the Ark Project in an advisory role. Though he doesn't know if the rest of his family was allowed onto the Arks, his intelligence and connection in the church secured him a spot on the Ark and he hopes to make the best of it to secure the existence of God's Children.

Name: Dr. Emma Braun

Fluff: Born and raised in Germany, a boiling pot of many world cultures in the early 2020's, Emma found the human condition very interesting from a certain age. Her favourite childhood memories are of her and her father sitting on the curb outside an ice-creamery watching, people watching and analyzing the behaviour of all the passer bys. Mr. Braun, Emma's father, was a lecturer on Sociology and Psychology at the Freie Universität Berlin which is where she believes her interest in the interactions between people comes from. Her mother was an English teacher from Britain but she died when Emma was very young when an immigrant drove his car onto a sidewalk, striking and killing multiple people. At the age of 17, Emma was accepted into Columbia University on an international scholarship where she studied for 6 years before getting her PhD in Psychology. Before the launch of the Ark, Emma was the head of her field globally as a world renowned Psychiatrist, trying to find what makes a human "righteous" by global standards. Recently, she's turned her attention to SI, helping programmers with the decision making of a righteous intelligence. Her current goal is creating mankind's first artificial intelligence.

Physically, Emma is of average stature standing at 5'4. She's of a slim build with dark brown hair which contrasts against her fair skin. Her eyes are as big as saucers and are a vivid hazel. Most people would find her very conventionally attractive. Biologically, she is 25 years old.

>Fluff: Harper has spent his life roughing it. The rumor that he himself started states he was was raised by a pack of Dingos in the Australian outback and that they nursed him with the venom of an Eastern Brown Snake. He's climbed the highest mountains, trekked across the Antarctic, and has killed and skinned more endangered animals than the most prolific African warlord. So when people came looking for someone to help a bunch of eggheads survive on a new and potentially dangerous world, Harper was the first to get the call.

Name: Dr. Emma Braun

Fluff: Born and raised in Germany, a boiling pot of many world cultures in the early 2020's, Emma found the human condition very interesting from a certain age. Her favourite childhood memories are of her and her father sitting on the curb outside an ice-creamery watching, people watching and analyzing the behaviour of all the passer bys. Mr. Braun, Emma's father, was a lecturer on Sociology and Psychology at the Freie Universität Berlin which is where she believes her interest in the interactions between people comes from. Her mother was an English teacher from Britain but she died when Emma was very young when an immigrant drove his car onto a sidewalk, striking and killing multiple people. At the age of 17, Emma was accepted into Columbia University on an international scholarship where she studied for 6 years before getting her PhD in Psychology. Before the launch of the Ark, Emma was the head of her field globally as a world renowned Psychiatrist, trying to find what makes a human "righteous" by global standards. Recently, she's turned her attention to SI, helping programmers with the decision making of a righteous intelligence. Her current goal is creating mankind's first artificial intelligence.

Physically, Emma is of average stature standing at 5'4. She's of a slim build with dark brown hair which contrasts against her fair skin. Her eyes are as big as saucers and are a vivid hazel. Most people would find her very conventionally attractive. Biologically, she is 25 years old.

Name: Yuri Petrov PhD

Fluff: Yuri is a headstrong and focused man. Of Russian decent born in the United States Yuri was raised to study hard and learn. When he was young he learned to do basic programming to help teach his friends who were having trouble with classes, so he made simple games. This turned into a love of robotics in his high school years. Taking all the hours he could in college he quickly gained a doctorate in robotics and did research on nanorobotics and their use in manufacturing. In the following years he joined his friend in starting a manufacturing company using methods he devised, sadly the nanorobotics were still too archaic to be used effectively. Yuri researched into materials, chemistry, and a tad bit into engineering to help and soon many products had the Arcadia Manufacturing Co. stamp on them. Some would call Yuri 'obsessed', especially those that knew he did experiments in his free time, but Yuri likes to call himself 'dedicated'. When it was found the world was going to end Yuri was nearly instantly brought on the ark as a scientist and back up engineer, as well as aiding in the programming of the ship's SI.

Name: Jonas Barthule

Fluff: Jonas Barthule was once a simple man from the U.S. with an ordinary middle-class upbringing with a bachelor's degree in robotics and a mechanic's license in heavy machinery. This all changed once he was drafted to fight in the war against North Korea in 2031 as a pilot in the new Steel Legion program, which involved the use of warmechs - 10 foot tall powersuits built more like bipedal tanks but far more mobile and versatile, with interchangable weapons and parts to suit the job. Jonas emerged from the war as a distinguished war hero, being part of the operation that killed Kim Jong Un and won the war. He would serve in many later wars, from the many spats with the Islamic State to the Brazilian war before the departure, and in between he acted as a consultant in mech design, helping to design and test the first flight units for warmechs along with gradually making sleeker, less bulky units with greater range of motion and mobility without sacrificing protection or functionality. In recognition for his piloting skill and contributions to mechanized weapons technology, he was assigned a spot on an ark. Now his new mission is to help keep this crew safe by using not only his piloting skills but also by continuing to invent cutting-edge weapons with the materials he has to help defend against the aliens, and maybe someday to take the fight straight to the bastards.

Huangdan Wong was put on the Ark because he was, as far as the Chinese government could tell, the best fucking driver in the Eastern Hemisphere. He's driven cars, bikes, trucks, tractors, boats, planes, tanks, APCs and even a mech or two. He's driven on grassland, ice, marshlands, deserts, forests, and war-torn urban sprawls. He does not brag about his impeccable driving record and skill behind the wheel, though this is partly because outside of his native Chinese he barely speaks any English. He reads it well enough, though, and knows directions when he hears them. If it's got tires, treads, feet, or repulsor-jets on the ground, then Huangdan can drive the sumbitch into a tarpit and back out the other side before you can say "ni hao."

E: I may have been poking around but it doesn't seem like any harm was done? If that wasn't a part of the plan, why did it lock people outside the control room out?

A: Doesn't seem like any harm was done? The ship went into maintenance mode because it was trying to repair itself! Right when we needed it to actually land where we wanted! We could be thousands of miles from the suited landing zone now? And who knows what the hell was lost in the SI when it was damaged?

>Name:

Amari Umberman

>Fluff:

Before the world was threatened with apocalypse, Amari had just finished her third degree. Some would have called her a professional alumni, dedicated more to theory than to practice. She had majored first in Biology, then Paleobotany, and lastly a custom major she referred to as "Xenology", but which most preferred to call "theoretical biophysics". The coursework revolved around speculation, to be sure, but Amari insisted it was based within core biological fact. Her theories on the origins of life are somewhat controversial, pointing to the many asteroids and comets that impacted earth in its formative years, leading to the first bacterial life. The correspondent to Earth life, she said, was somewhere out there in the stars. Her academic success also lead to positions as president of the Student Scientist Union and later the Alumni Organization of Boston University. Her talent for managing groups was remarkable, and won her some local fame for the organizations' works.

Then the asteroid came, and Earth looked to the stars for its future survival. If colonies were to survive on alien worlds, they would need people with an understanding of alien life. Fortunately for Amari, her renown won her a place upon an ark ship, someone who could study and monitor the conditions of their new world. The thought of an alien paradise, untouched by human hands, excited Amari. She would finally get to observe the principles of xenology with real, tangible evidence, and could prove her theory correct!

Most remarkably of all, Amari was chosen to LEAD the expedition as captain! She was uncertain if she was worthy of the role, but the administrators told her that the ship's SI would handle most of the day-to-day relegating. She would just be in managing personnel and making the final call on decisions. Still trepidatious, Amari agreed. Anything to get the chance to explore new worlds. Perhaps under her leadership, humanity could make use of its second chance, and treat this planet better than they had treated Earth. It was unlikely others would have the same respect for nature that she did, but she had to try. What else was this expedition than a trial in hope?

Not to say Anton is without accomplishments it's just that groundbreaking pharmaceutical research or being the source of a new kind of super high yield breed of bean sprout just doesn't get you in the newspaper headlines but it does get your file on the recruiters desk for a chance at being part of an ARK crew of scientists and engineers with the goal of keeping them all fed and watered and ensuring that any food production in the new world won't have everyone dead in a decade from mercury consumption because the plant that looks and tastes like a cucumber is inundated with the stuff.

Name: Armian Brochlev

Fluff:Armian was born into the lower class and ended up working as a miner so that he could afford to pay for school. He earned his bachelors in Demolition Engineering and oddly enough used it to further his mining career. He specialized in removing resources fast. Giving up the larger amount of resources from a slow mine in return for quick and destructive mining. He quickly became immensely popular among many mining companies (while ascending to almost enemy #1 to most eco-groups). Eventually he was recruited to join the ARK.

Well shit. Considering the bumps that just woke me up it was a hell of a lot sooner than 6 weeks did I wake up late or something? why did no one wake me up….or even notice me missing…..dicks.

1. Well fuck it we must be on planet now. No time to waste lets go see leeroy and see if he has any preliminary scans for possible mineral deposits. Judging by the loadout when we took off getting minerals will be a top and early priority.>>41748. If he has scans now I can look over them immediately if not then help him get some scans done maybe my geology knowledge will help out.

2.Let's also go visit that "Logistician and Technical Engineer">>41713 or the overglorified quartermaster as I prefer to think of him. See what explosives we can make offhand. I can make some from scratch if need be but its not my expertise I am much better at using them creatively and effectively than actually making them.

To think that I'm going before a tribunal without being allowed to make my case is disappointing

I understand what happened was a danger to the lives of everyone on board and, if done maliciously, I would expect nothing less than life in prison. However, what happened was not intentional nor done with any malicious intent. I helped program the SI. Granted, I was not, in anyway, associated with the computing of trajectory, or lifesupport, or anything of the like. It was my job to make the system more accessable. To allow it to communicate with the people on board as another human might. It was my understanding that even during the most crucial points of our trip, the SI would have more than enough processing power to do it's job in case of an emergancy. I was informed that we would be landing in the next few weeks, I was not aware that the trajectory of landing or any of that space-flight jargon was happening the moment I accessed the SI to help me further my studies into replicating human intelligence inside a machine. What's more, we landed safely with no loss of life or injury and, from my understanding, with minor losses in data. If I were to be sentenced to do menial labour, I believe that to be not only an extreme punishment, but also a waste of my presence. I have the upper body strength of a toy poodle. I know how people think and, I do not wish to brag but, I know it the most.

"If you helped program the damn AI then how the hell didn't you know that it was in its damn landing sequence? It's not about processing power, it's about the fact that you tried to fucking act cute and REPROGRAM THE DAMN THING MID-PROCESS! And stop making light of the situation, we're far from our ideal trajectory in a forest with giant fucking monsters whose teeth can chew through MILITARY-GRADE STEEL, on top of whatever else this place has waiting for us.

I spent a month trying to plot the ideal route for our ship to land, in the most suitable spot on the planet for us to survive. YOU threw all of that hard work away in an instant to pursue some childish fantasy and quite frankly, endangerment to us all. We keep our computers as the level of SI for a reason, yet you would gladly push past those well-founded barriers in a moment of paramount vulnerability for the ship and very well possibly be the last of humanity. What's more, we're now stuck in the middle of a jungle with giant lizards who's skin is made of STONE that we can barely scratch, are down several drones and possibly the only real piece of military hardware, and our SI is liable to further system damage from your "attempts" at altering its code.

Character:

Name: Yuri Kuznetsov

Fluff: The last great pilot of the Reformed Soviet States of Communist Powers (RSSCP) Yuri was trained on the only "prototype" model ark, and as such was one of the few people to have adept experience flying one of these beasts. Yuri, as a astronaut, was well acquainted with space, and in a joint UN mission had flown as far as Titan, and even walked upon its alien surface. Obsessed with space from a young age, Yuri was not as surprised as many others on Earth when the first sign of intelligent alien life appeared several AU's from Earth, and even less surprised that it was hostile. The universe was a hostile place, much like the very world that humanity evolved on. Such hostile environments necessitated the utilization of scarce resources for survival, and when more then one party, or even others in the same party, desired the same resources, conflict occurred. If everyone you met was more preoccupied with their own survival (which they should be, evolution and instincts ensured that) why would you even give peace a chance? Better to wipe them out when they least suspect it and keep yourself alive and safe. That being said, he still hated them for it, but at the same time relished the chance to finally leave Earth behind and explore the stars, beyond the bounds of this solar system, and maybe even touch foot on alien worlds, and make them a new home for humanity. When Yuri was selected for the Ark Initiative, he was slightly surprised, but very hopeful and excited. Even moreso when he found out that he was to be trained on how to pilot on of these massive ships, the first of their kind ever built by mankind. As an astronaut he was able to skip most of the initial training stages of both survival and piloting, but like many others had to sit through the very rushed but massive courses on all of the new cutting edge technology that made the Arks tick. When he was merely an astronaut, and not one of the last, best hopes for mankind, Yuri specialized in chemistry, more specifically as an organic chemist. Yuri was also picked for another reason, the path he followed before he became a spaceman. Yuri spent 3 years in the Russian military, as a test pilot of the last great jet fighters of the Soviet Air-force, and 2 before that as a conscript in the 4th Chechnyan War. He could handle himself, he had his whole life, from the trenches outside of Grozny to the Methane lakes of Titan.

3/4 - With the creature being taken into the ark, Amari immediately sets to work dissecting and analyzing it as best as possible before it can decay. Body structure, nervous, respiratory, circulatory systems, dermal composition, musculature - almost too much for one girl to manage. She takes plenty of samples for storage as well.

Name: Gregor Adolf Furst

Fluff: Gregor was born in the United States to a rich family of noble descent. Before the Second World War, the family sold their estates to Hitler and moved to america to start a company. They quickly formed a multi millionaire company and bought their estates back a couple decades later. Born during a golden age of technological progress and into a rich family, Gregor was afforded most luxuries and took advantage of it, attending some of the best schools in the world. Born a second son and not really interested in the family business, Gregor focused on studying Exoplanetology for many years until something happened that changed his life forever. In a boardroom coup, Gregor's family was ousted from the company and soon after, his Father and Grandfather murdered and made to look like a suicide. Through the life insurance money, inheritance, and crafty investing by his older brother, they were able to keep the estates in Germany and stay afloat, but Gregor soon fell into depression. Gregor's hair turned from Pale Blonde to fully White from the trauma and after awhile of staying home, he turned to God. While continuing his previous courses in the Exoplanetological field, he started studies on theology as well and became part of a parish near Rome. His intelligence, money, and devotion to the church soon earned him the attention of The Vatican and he was invited to come study there. The Vatican's treasure trove of knowledge and thousands of years of discipline gave Gregor an even bigger advantage, allowing him to finish degrees years before at most other schools. Gregor's advances in the field enabled the discovery team to find the Asteroid before it was too late and he was put on the Ark Project in an advisory role. Though he doesn't know if the rest of his family was allowed onto the Arks, his intelligence and connection in the church secured him a spot on the Ark and he hopes to make the best of it to secure the existence of God's Children.

Gregor sat there quietly, waiting for them to all speak their piece and consider their viewpoints. He unconsciously started rubbing his crucifix before speaking. "Dr. Braun's good intentions, I believe, are key here. She would not be here if not for her skills, certainly the Captain has seen her profile and would concur, so, since we're all here to save humanity it would be in our best interests to use all assets to their fullest. I agree that she has made a mistake, her good intentions being ruined by her vice, but there is still room for redemption. I would recommend we imprison her, but, give her a closed network computer and provide code and data for her to analyze and improve upon. We can then cross examine her work and add it to our own conclusions if it seems valid. She can stay where she cannot harm the colony, while still providing for it. I pray you have some forgiveness in your hearts."

"While I would have agreed to more lenient punishment if she had only had poor timing in a desire to better the colony; she did not show this. I did a review of the code for Sia and it seems that she altered the code so that the SI would respond to the name Felix as well as speak in a masculine voice, as you have no doubt noticed. She also created some chat bots, simple learning programs, to speak to each other and the SI. The strain of the time and the code change caused the SI to go into maintenance mode, and you all know the rest. As well, unless Captain Umberman gave her permission to perform these changes, she made these changes to a key ship system with no authorization. She has shown a complete disregard for proper procedure, a willingness to abuse SI access to be used in emergencis, and has put the entire mission at risk for nothing more than her own pet projects and desires. While we do need everyone we can get I do not trust her to do her job if she is just going to work on pet projects that have no benifit in the current situation. At the very least we should remove her computer access."

Three fliers are sent up to act as a triangulating system. and using that system another flier starts scouting the area. It spots many strange plants and creatures it conveys back through its comms. The creatures range from as small as your thumb and insectsized to one giant that was busy munching on a tree. The beast was 25 meters tall and twice as long. it had the width of several trucks and the earth shook as it walked. Most of these creatures seem to have 6 limbs and sensory organs where you'd expect them for earthlife. maybe the strangest creature was what looked like a giant bulbous mantaray that nudged one of the LPS fliers with its wing as it flew past. The plants mostly aren't much larger than those on earth but they do seem sturdier. There is a surprising ammount of radioactive particles in the soil. Not enough for to worry but more than expected. It could be a result of the frequent meteor showers. The atmosphere is breathable for a few minutes at a time without any protective gear. After that you could expect a rising headache and blurriness of vision. Followed by hemmoraghing from the capilaries in the eyes and nose as well as unconciousness and eventually death.

The SI has exited maintainance mode and been reset to the latest backup

See >>41748 for drone survey(he had taken that action anyway so just pointing it out for you) From what you can tell the creature might have been surprised and then enraged or scared after the shooting started.

Fluff: Yuri is a headstrong and focused man. Of Russian decent born in the United States Yuri was raised to study hard and learn. When he was young he learned to do basic programming to help teach his friends who were having trouble with classes, so he made simple games. This turned into a love of robotics in his high school years. Taking all the hours he could in college he quickly gained a doctorate in robotics and did research on nanorobotics and their use in manufacturing. In the following years he joined his friend in starting a manufacturing company using methods he devised, sadly the nanorobotics were still too archaic to be used effectively. Yuri researched into materials, chemistry, and a tad bit into engineering to help and soon many products had the Arcadia Manufacturing Co. stamp on them. Some would call Yuri 'obsessed', especially those that knew he did experiments in his free time, but Yuri likes to call himself 'dedicated'. When it was found the world was going to end Yuri was nearly instantly brought on the ark as a scientist and back up engineer, as well as aiding in the programming of the ship's SI.

Fluff: Oliver was always inspired by the stars and a huge technophile. Even as a child he was able to reprogram basic robots to due much more complex tasks and as he got older was able to make many modifications to them. When his talent was recognized he was able to get into university at the age of 12 and had spent 10 years claiming degree after degree in things like computers, robotics, ships, materials, and cybernetics, ballistics, etc… During this time he made many minor improvements to things, but never created anything truly unique. When he heard about the asteroid about to hit earth he immediately volunteered to help design and build the arks that could be humanity's only hope.

"Right! Campbell, you've got the drones under control. Make sure they've got constant visuals on the creatures. Get all living personnel inside the ark at once! If any of you have any ideas to divert those things, now would be a good time. But don't start shooting! We don't even know what they're doing yet. Only start firing if they attack!"

1/2/3 - While the rest of the ship busies itself preparing for another potential fight, Amari cloisters herself in the laboratory. She sets to work dissecting and analyzing it as best as possible before it can decay. Body structure, nervous, respiratory, circulatory systems, dermal composition, musculature - almost too much for one girl to manage. She takes plenty of samples for storage as well.

>Name:

Amari Umberman

>Fluff:

Before the world was threatened with apocalypse, Amari had just finished her third degree. Some would have called her a professional alumni, dedicated more to theory than to practice. She had majored first in Biology, then Paleobotany, and lastly a custom major she referred to as "Xenology", but which most preferred to call "theoretical biophysics". The coursework revolved around speculation, to be sure, but Amari insisted it was based within core biological fact. Her theories on the origins of life are somewhat controversial, pointing to the many asteroids and comets that impacted earth in its formative years, leading to the first bacterial life. The correspondent to Earth life, she said, was somewhere out there in the stars. Her academic success also lead to positions as president of the Student Scientist Union and later the Alumni Organization of Boston University. Her talent for managing groups was remarkable, and won her some local fame for the organizations' works.

Then the asteroid came, and Earth looked to the stars for its future survival. If colonies were to survive on alien worlds, they would need people with an understanding of alien life. Fortunately for Amari, her renown won her a place upon an ark ship, someone who could study and monitor the conditions of their new world. The thought of an alien paradise, untouched by human hands, excited Amari. She would finally get to observe the principles of xenology with real, tangible evidence, and could prove her theory correct!

Most remarkably of all, Amari was chosen to LEAD the expedition as captain! She was uncertain if she was worthy of the role, but the administrators told her that the ship's SI would handle most of the day-to-day relegating. She would just be in managing personnel and making the final call on decisions. Still trepidatious, Amari agreed. Anything to get the chance to explore new worlds. Perhaps under her leadership, humanity could make use of its second chance, and treat this planet better than they had treated Earth. It was unlikely others would have the same respect for nature that she did, but she had to try. What else was this expedition than a trial in hope?

Name: Armian Brochlev

Fluff:Armian was born into the lower class and ended up working as a miner so that he could afford to pay for school. He earned his bachelors in Demolition Engineering and oddly enough used it to further his mining career. He specialized in removing resources fast. Giving up the larger amount of resources from a slow mine in return for quick and destructive mining. He quickly became immensely popular among many mining companies (while ascending to almost enemy #1 to most eco-groups). Eventually he was recruited to join the ARK.

Already we are under attack by natives. This will go wonderfully. Wait a minute. Those hides are made of rock formations. Very interesting. They would likely need to hide in a natural cave formation for much of their early life to form rock patterns, and natural caves generally mean natural resources. Could be metal could be some good crystals. Watch the battle closely but safely paying all attention to it. Watch where the animals run to. The preliminary scans failed so we will have to find these creatures nesting grounds as the next most likely area of mining.

Fluff: The last great pilot of the Reformed Soviet States of Communist Powers (RSSCP) Yuri was trained on the only "prototype" model ark, and as such was one of the few people to have adept experience flying one of these beasts. Yuri, as a astronaut, was well acquainted with space, and in a joint UN mission had flown as far as Titan, and even walked upon its alien surface. Obsessed with space from a young age, Yuri was not as surprised as many others on Earth when the first sign of intelligent alien life appeared several AU's from Earth, and even less surprised that it was hostile. The universe was a hostile place, much like the very world that humanity evolved on. Such hostile environments necessitated the utilization of scarce resources for survival, and when more then one party, or even others in the same party, desired the same resources, conflict occurred. If everyone you met was more preoccupied with their own survival (which they should be, evolution and instincts ensured that) why would you even give peace a chance? Better to wipe them out when they least suspect it and keep yourself alive and safe. That being said, he still hated them for it, but at the same time relished the chance to finally leave Earth behind and explore the stars, beyond the bounds of this solar system, and maybe even touch foot on alien worlds, and make them a new home for humanity. When Yuri was selected for the Ark Initiative, he was slightly surprised, but very hopeful and excited. Even moreso when he found out that he was to be trained on how to pilot on of these massive ships, the first of their kind ever built by mankind. As an astronaut he was able to skip most of the initial training stages of both survival and piloting, but like many others had to sit through the very rushed but massive courses on all of the new cutting edge technology that made the Arks tick. When he was merely an astronaut, and not one of the last, best hopes for mankind, Yuri specialized in chemistry, more specifically as an organic chemist. Yuri was also picked for another reason, the path he followed before he became a spaceman. Yuri spent 3 years in the Russian military, as a test pilot of the last great jet fighters of the Soviet Air-force, and 2 before that as a conscript in the 4th Chechnyan War. He could handle himself, he had his whole life, from the trenches outside of Grozny to the Methane lakes of Titan.

Name: Jonas Barthule

Fluff: Jonas Barthule was once a simple man from the U.S. with an ordinary middle-class upbringing with a bachelor's degree in robotics and a mechanic's license in heavy machinery. This all changed once he was drafted to fight in the war against North Korea in 2031 as a pilot in the new Steel Legion program, which involved the use of warmechs - 10 foot tall powersuits built more like bipedal tanks but far more mobile and versatile, with interchangable weapons and parts to suit the job. Jonas emerged from the war as a distinguished war hero, being part of the operation that killed Kim Jong Un and won the war. He would serve in many later wars, from the many spats with the Islamic State to the Brazilian war before the departure, and in between he acted as a consultant in mech design, helping to design and test the first flight units for warmechs along with gradually making sleeker, less bulky units with greater range of motion and mobility without sacrificing protection or functionality. In recognition for his piloting skill and contributions to mechanized weapons technology, he was assigned a spot on an ark. Now his new mission is to help keep this crew safe by using not only his piloting skills but also by continuing to invent cutting-edge weapons with the materials he has to help defend against the aliens, and maybe someday to take the fight straight to the bastards.

Name: Gregor Adolf Furst

Fluff: Gregor was born in the United States to a rich family of noble descent. Before the Second World War, the family sold their estates to Hitler and moved to america to start a company. They quickly formed a multi millionaire company and bought their estates back a couple decades later. Born during a golden age of technological progress and into a rich family, Gregor was afforded most luxuries and took advantage of it, attending some of the best schools in the world. Born a second son and not really interested in the family business, Gregor focused on studying Exoplanetology for many years until something happened that changed his life forever. In a boardroom coup, Gregor's family was ousted from the company and soon after, his Father and Grandfather murdered and made to look like a suicide. Through the life insurance money, inheritance, and crafty investing by his older brother, they were able to keep the estates in Germany and stay afloat, but Gregor soon fell into depression. Gregor's hair turned from Pale Blonde to fully White from the trauma and after awhile of staying home, he turned to God. While continuing his previous courses in the Exoplanetological field, he started studies on theology as well and became part of a parish near Rome. His intelligence, money, and devotion to the church soon earned him the attention of The Vatican and he was invited to come study there. The Vatican's treasure trove of knowledge and thousands of years of discipline gave Gregor an even bigger advantage, allowing him to finish degrees years before at most other schools. Gregor's advances in the field enabled the discovery team to find the Asteroid before it was too late and he was put on the Ark Project in an advisory role. Though he doesn't know if the rest of his family was allowed onto the Arks, his intelligence and connection in the church secured him a spot on the Ark and he hopes to make the best of it to secure the existence of God's Children.

Name: Yuri Petrov PhD

Fluff: Yuri is a headstrong and focused man. Of Russian decent born in the United States Yuri was raised to study hard and learn. When he was young he learned to do basic programming to help teach his friends who were having trouble with classes, so he made simple games. This turned into a love of robotics in his high school years. Taking all the hours he could in college he quickly gained a doctorate in robotics and did research on nanorobotics and their use in manufacturing. In the following years he joined his friend in starting a manufacturing company using methods he devised, sadly the nanorobotics were still too archaic to be used effectively. Yuri researched into materials, chemistry, and a tad bit into engineering to help and soon many products had the Arcadia Manufacturing Co. stamp on them. Some would call Yuri 'obsessed', especially those that knew he did experiments in his free time, but Yuri likes to call himself 'dedicated'. When it was found the world was going to end Yuri was nearly instantly brought on the ark as a scientist and back up engineer, as well as aiding in the programming of the ship's SI.

Name: Oliver Krantz

Fluff: Oliver was always inspired by the stars and a huge technophile. Even as a child he was able to reprogram basic robots to due much more complex tasks and as he got older was able to make many modifications to them. When his talent was recognized he was able to get into university at the age of 12 and had spent 10 years claiming degree after degree in things like computers, robotics, ships, materials, and cybernetics, ballistics, etc… During this time he made many minor improvements to things, but never created anything truly unique. When he heard about the asteroid about to hit earth he immediately volunteered to help design and build the arks that could be humanity's only hope.

Dice rollRolled 30, 72, 42 = 144 (3d100)

Name: Jonas Barthule

Fluff: Jonas Barthule was once a simple man from the U.S. with an ordinary middle-class upbringing with a bachelor's degree in robotics and a mechanic's license in heavy machinery. This all changed once he was drafted to fight in the war against North Korea in 2031 as a pilot in the new Steel Legion program, which involved the use of warmechs - 10 foot tall powersuits built more like bipedal tanks but far more mobile and versatile, with interchangable weapons and parts to suit the job. Jonas emerged from the war as a distinguished war hero, being part of the operation that killed Kim Jong Un and won the war. He would serve in many later wars, from the many spats with the Islamic State to the Brazilian war before the departure, and in between he acted as a consultant in mech design, helping to design and test the first flight units for warmechs along with gradually making sleeker, less bulky units with greater range of motion and mobility without sacrificing protection or functionality. In recognition for his piloting skill and contributions to mechanized weapons technology, he was assigned a spot on an ark. Now his new mission is to help keep this crew safe by using not only his piloting skills but also by continuing to invent cutting-edge weapons with the materials he has to help defend against the aliens, and maybe someday to take the fight straight to the bastards.

Other:

1. I should attempt to increase the range of the mineral scanners in order to find resources in the area. We'll undoubtedly need them if we want long-term survivability here.

2. After that I think I'll go try to set up some electric fences around the perimeter to protect our base from those shelled things and whatever else might be lurking around.

3. Brochlev has been missing for some time now. Send a flier to locate him and lead him back to the base. Hopefully he hasn't gotten himself eaten.

Name: Armian Brochlev

Fluff:Armian was born into the lower class and ended up working as a miner so that he could afford to pay for school. He earned his bachelors in Demolition Engineering and oddly enough used it to further his mining career. He specialized in removing resources fast. Giving up the larger amount of resources from a slow mine in return for quick and destructive mining. He quickly became immensely popular among many mining companies (while ascending to almost enemy #1 to most eco-groups). Eventually he was recruited to join the ARK.

Well shit I am lost. Normally you are supposed to stay put I here. But those fucks didn't even realize I was still in stasis for 6 weeks if I wait for them to save me I will be dead long before anyone even realizes I am gone. So I have a plan to grab their attention.

1.2.(not sure how to split them up) Climb a tree and set one of the charges to go off via remote detonation. Then climb down and find a place to shelter decently safe away. once I am in shelter signal the explosive to trigger and they will know damn well where I am.

Name: Gregor Adolf Furst

Fluff: Gregor was born in the United States to a rich family of noble descent. Before the Second World War, the family sold their estates to Hitler and moved to america to start a company. They quickly formed a multi millionaire company and bought their estates back a couple decades later. Born during a golden age of technological progress and into a rich family, Gregor was afforded most luxuries and took advantage of it, attending some of the best schools in the world. Born a second son and not really interested in the family business, Gregor focused on studying Exoplanetology for many years until something happened that changed his life forever. In a boardroom coup, Gregor's family was ousted from the company and soon after, his Father and Grandfather murdered and made to look like a suicide. Through the life insurance money, inheritance, and crafty investing by his older brother, they were able to keep the estates in Germany and stay afloat, but Gregor soon fell into depression. Gregor's hair turned from Pale Blonde to fully White from the trauma and after awhile of staying home, he turned to God. While continuing his previous courses in the Exoplanetological field, he started studies on theology as well and became part of a parish near Rome. His intelligence, money, and devotion to the church soon earned him the attention of The Vatican and he was invited to come study there. The Vatican's treasure trove of knowledge and thousands of years of discipline gave Gregor an even bigger advantage, allowing him to finish degrees years before at most other schools. Gregor's advances in the field enabled the discovery team to find the Asteroid before it was too late and he was put on the Ark Project in an advisory role. Though he doesn't know if the rest of his family was allowed onto the Arks, his intelligence and connection in the church secured him a spot on the Ark and he hopes to make the best of it to secure the existence of God's Children.

Name: Huangdan Wong

Fluff: Huangdan Wong is not a lucky man. Huangdan Wong was not chosen for his intelligence, his warrior's spirit or his good looks, all of which are in dubious supply. Huangdan Wong was put on the Ark because he was, as far as the Chinese government could tell, the best fucking driver in the Eastern Hemisphere. He's driven cars, bikes, trucks, tractors, boats, planes, tanks, APCs and even a mech or two. He's driven on grassland, ice, marshlands, deserts, forests, and war-torn urban sprawls. He does not brag about his impeccable driving record and skill behind the wheel, though this is partly because outside of his native Chinese he barely speaks any English. He reads it well enough, though, and knows directions when he hears them. If it's got tires, treads, feet, or repulsor-jets on the ground, then Huangdan can drive the sumbitch into a tarpit and back out the other side before you can say "ni hao."
