I did. But to be honest, that's only because I crossed paths with some Aussie Military types in the service and saw the flag on their stuff and said, "Oooohhh! So that's what their flag looks like."
Nice App Neqq. Welcome to the game. You make "5" out of 5 so far, hope to get 6.
Jump over into the game forum and build your character sheet and start conversing with the others.

Place holder!

This looks awesome. Full disclosure though, I have zero experience with this game system.

Character Name: Ethan Hall
Sex: Male
Age: 25
Physical Description: Standing at 6’2’’ and weighing 200 lbs with his buzz cut blond hair, piercing blue eyes and sporting an athletic build, Ethan looks more like a male model than a Viper pilot (a subject of endless teasing from his brothers in arms).

Callsign (and how/why you got it): Icarus. Once in flight school his Viper was disabled du to a solar flare. The flight instructor said that in thirty years in the Colonial Fleet he had never witnessed such a random freak accident.

Personality: Ethan could best be describes as good-humoured and carefree. He is the guy who still has a smile on his face when every one around is in panicking. He’s the guy who organises the weekly poker game in the crew quarters and always has some cigars and booze hidden away in some stash for when the occasion calls for it.

Although he never received a formal reprimand, he does have a tendency to be a bit lax with discipline. Though it would be easy to label him as a joker that would be a grave oversight, for when the chips are down there are very few other pilots you would want in your squadron. His light heartedness diminishes in nothing his professionalism and efficiency in the cockpit.

Birth Colony: Libris

Background: Ethan comes from one of the wealthiest families of Libris. His father is the President & CEO of one of the planet’s largest banks and his mother comes from a wealthy family of resort and casino owners. Life was easy for the young man, and growing up it mainly consisted of private school, sports cars and lavish parties. However instead of spoiling him, the exposition to these excess, left Ethan feeling empty. He knew he wanted to do something meaningful with his life but he didn’t know what.

Growing up, it was expected that Ethan would go business school and then either go into banking. There fore he was groomed by his parents from an early age so he could one day take his rightful place in the family business.

Never having been interested the world of business Ethan shocked his parents by enlisting in the Colonial Armed Forces. This lead to several heated arguments with his family, but in the end, the young man had made his mind. The idea of serving in something like the Colonial Fleet appealed to him, it gave him a sense of doing something more important than just making more money.

After officer training he applied and was accepted in flight school. Flying came naturally to the young officer and although he wasn’t top of his class he always maintained himself in the top five.

After recieving his wings, Ethan was assigned to the 71st Battlestar Group where he shortly made a reputation for himself as one of the best pilots in the group and even the entire Colonial Fleet. It was therefore logical for him to be assigned to Red Squadron when Admiral Nagala decided to create it.

Welcome Fin!! You saw this at the right time. Got five wanting in, four with completed character sheets. Once you give me something to look at, you should be able to get right into the game.
as for zero experience I thinks this system is the easier to use I've ever RP'd and the most forgiving. Everything is in increments of d2 dice and level determines points to spend. Most rolls are an ability + skill with plus or minus d2 increments for assists or complications. That's pretty much it. With a twist or two.

Fin, go ahead and move over to the game forum and post your character in the right thread, and jump into the Game thread if you like. Create a character sheet based on the site's "Serenity" template as it is almost the same and will do. Here's the link.

Here's the full roster of Red Squadron!

Lostwynter: Playing Callsign: Ghost
Hextor: Playing Callsign: Blitz
Masternate: Playing Callsign: Mono Deceased - KIA
JaredSyn: Playing Callsign: Asper
Neqq: Playing Callsign, Hunter
Finrod Alcalimon: Callsign, Icarus Decease - KIA

Game NameBSG: Acts of Treason
Game SystemOther Roleplaying Games
ThemeBattleStar Galactica RPG
FlavourNear the Colonies - Shortly After the 2nd Cylon Attack
Plot SummaryGame is set immediately after the Cylons attack the Twelve Colonies.
The current characters are elite Viper pilots who served in the 71st Battlestar Group (BSG) under the command of Admiral Nagala. They were assigned to Red Squadron, Atlantia’s elite Viper squadron that consists of BSG 71’s best pilots and best fighters. Admiral Nagala brought this squadron into being, personally selected its members and reorganized Atlantia’s Red Squadron as a group of pilots without a set mission profile, allowing the squadron to accept almost any mission. While attending a presidential Address, the members of Red Squadron foiled a plot against President Adar and then went on a secret mission to fight Sagittaron terrorists who had seized a tylium mine on an asteroid outside of the boundaries of the Twelve Colonies. They had just completed their mission when they received a badly garbled message that said that the
Colonies were under attack. The foiled plot was all over the media, so you may recognize them. As for how they came to be where they are in the game now, your character will just have to ask them.

Your GM: I've been GMing/DMing games for over 25 years, and online play-by-post since 2001. I've RP'd in and GM'd several Serenity Cortex games (have two running on this site right now), and a few BSG Cortex Games.

# of Players: Accepting 2-3 players. Anyone I recognize from previous games I am in or have been in that is a reliable poster may get precedence.

Rulebook: This game will be using the Battlestar Galatica RPG Cortex Rulebook. I also have the book 'Thin Blue Line.'

Starting Level: Veteran

Time to Submit An Application: I'll keep this open until I have at least 2-3 players, and a bit longer. If necessary I'll RP an NPC character.

STORYLINE: The 2nd Cylon war just started. See "Starting Game location" below for information. The rest of the Background is up to you the player. You can be almost any type of character you want, but be advised that it would be wise to have a skill set that is "of use" or you may have a hard time fitting in.

APPLICATIONS: Since no rolling is required to create a character, please use this Site's "Serenity" character sheet Template as it is almost the same. Go ahead and create a character with the 48 point Attribute buy, 68 point skill buy, and 4 point trait buy. No Cylons, and no Canon Characters please.

If your character is, or was a pilot type in the Colonial Military, you'll need to come up with a Callsign. Here are some Callsign Examples (Bear in mind that Pilots never get to pick their Callsign) -
-Hera
-Bullseye
-Cobra
-Argus
-Maelstorm
-Hector

Use this rough template to put forth your submission -

Character Name:
Sex:
Age:
Physical Description:
Callsign (and how/why you got it if you have one):
Personality:
Birth Colony:
Background:

Before I go any further, I should have asked if it was okay to play the ship's Chief Petty Officer. Or did you just want pilots?

Application
left-aligned image
Character Name: Liam O'Connor
Sex: Male
Age: 54
Birth Colony: Leonis

Callsign: N/A, known to most as simply "Chief", or even "Warchief"
Rank: Chief Petty Officer
Current Assignment: Chief of the Deck, Battlestar Atlantia

Physical Description: Work in progress

Personality: Chief O'Connor has generally been subject to rather polarizing opinions aboard Battlestar Atlantia. His deckcrew view the old man as a stoic father figure who genuinely cares for people he has been placed in charge off. It's everything, from little things like remembering birthdays or the names of their children, to greater acts like smuggling medicine or punching out the uppity officers that talk down to them, that makes O'Connor so beloved amongst his men. The latter behavior is also the reason that O'Connor is so unpopular with the brass and most other outsiders. Most Viper pilots dislike O'Connor as well, put off by his explosive temper and frequently racist nature. However, those that make the effort to get on his good side, or at least not piss him off, reap the benefits of his years mechanical experience, his black market contacts, and his infamous ability to pull stings within the ship. It seems that the only thing sustaining O'Connor's military career is the fact that he seems to make friends just as quickly as enemies.

Background: Work in progress

Very interesting. So happens I'm in the market to add a new game and have a ... hrm ... unusual BSG character concept. Whether or not it can be used will depend on what's happening in the game, though.

Suppose I ought to go read some of it and find out.

So... looks like Hack is the only one expressing real interest so far.
Hack, go ahead and create the character sheet as mentioned above and shoot me a link to it.
