Interested!

I saw Aliens four times in the theater when it came out. This universe and setting have always appealed to me.
I haven't played the system before so I need to check that out.

Also lodging my interest! I will probably be applying for the Company Agent role.

Got to say I will always prefer Alien to the others, though obviously Aliens comes a close second. The original film is just so great, like a haunted house in space, the Xenomorph is a complete Outside Context Problem, it's almost Cosmic Horror.

Awesome! Always fun to hear from other Alien enthusiasts! looking forward to seeing your apps @ratchet and @EMIW

And you don't need to have any familiarity with the system. It's easy to pick up, and I will provide rules as needed.

Application: Rukia Strelchenko, Officer
right-aligned image

A little bit about yourself and what draws you to the world of Alien
I've been playing table-top, PC and LARP RPGs for over 40 years. My favorite genre is sci-fi.
I didn't see Alien when it came out for various reasons, but I managed to see Aliens so many times that I still look up when I enter a parking garage. It's a movie that I can't possibly see too many times. I've watched other Alien films and played PC games. What I think draws me to it the most is the relentlessness of the enemy whether there's one of them or a horde. They just keep finding a way to keep on coming...

Which role you’re applying to
Officer

Name, gender, age, birth place
Rukia Strelchenko, Female, 29, 17 Phei Phei E

Backstory and a character portrait
The portfolio of conflicts comprising Rukia Strelchenko's persona would make a psychology graduate student's day. Born on a hunk of rock in a barely airtight hab-structure where thirst and hunger were everyone's constant companions survival is a core motivation. However, co-operation and co-dependence were keys to survival so it's not just her personal survival, but that of her community. However, competition for scarce resources ultimately drove her to leave her birthplace by capitalizing on her core strengths - intelligence and empathy. This led her through online college classes and to service in the merchant fleets to ensure her personal survival. No matter what kind of rust-bucket rock or ice hauler she might serve on it was more airtight than home. However, that same intelligence and empathy set her apart from the rest of the crew and opened opportunities for officer training and command. However, her lack of contacts and sponsorship kept her relegated to a supporting role in the navy hierarchies.

If she were to reflect on this she might see the irony. Most likely she'd just say "Whatever", pat her full belly, and take another sip of water.
Born on an over-populated, under-fed colony in the Outer Rim.


Note on edits
Changed her age to something a little more appropriate for her background.
Completed backstory concept.

Gaius Breckenridge
Myself:
I love the Alien universe, it's just so compelling. I've been playing TTRPGs for I'd guess 8 years now, mostly D&D but I've branched out several times, even played an Alien one-shot a number of years back.

Role:
Company Agent

right-aligned image
Character:
Name: Gaius Breckenridge
Gender: Male
Age: 32
Birth place: (Unsure how I would know the different places to be born in Alien)
Backstory: WIP. Gaius is a company man through and through. He believes in Weyland-Yutani and their work. It isn't just a job to him, it's a calling, and everything else comes second. I expect he saw some W-Y infrastructure project in his youth that greatly benefited his family (likely at a cost to plenty of others that Gaius never knew about). It's entirely possible that, having been in the company for a good few years now, he's seen a little more of the dirty underbelly of W-Y than he is comfortable with, and is struggling with balancing that against the good he knows the company has done.

Ok, I have to apply to this! I'm a diehard fan of everything Alien. I love the lore, love the universe.

Application - Harper Durand
Myself: I'm a librarian who has only been playing TTRPGs since 2021, but I fell hard for them. I used to do old-school PBP roleplaying on really old forums and message boards in the early days of AOL. Been a huge fan of Alien since my mom let me watch it as a kid, which, in hindsight might not have been the best idea as it gave me nightmares for weeks. Even despite the nightmares I couldn't help but love the universe and love badass Ripley. My favorite genre is also sci-fi but specifically sci-fi horror, and Alien is the epitome of that genre.

Role: Captain

right-aligned image

Character Name: Harper Durand
Gender: Female
Age: 33
Birthplace: Aerodyne
Backstory: Harper was born to a no-nonsense single mother on the colony planet of Aerodyne. From a young age, she lived a hardscrabble existence with her mother taking various dead-end jobs to pay the bills. Looking for a way to escape the cycle of poverty and neglect, Harper joined up with the Colonial Marines when she came of age. After a skirmish with space pirates left her with a permanent limp, she was honorably discharged and took up the life of a space trucker, appreciating the life of a nomad that it provided her. Having always been rather taciturn and not one to make friends easily, the lifestyle suits her.

Happy to see a few folks interested in coming aboard! Also thanks for the app @Nyx89. Are you applying to join the current game? In the current game you will actually start as a crew member aboard a derelict science vessle just coming out of a long hypersleep. How about you Keylan?

I'm interested in joining a new game. If there's not enough to start a new one I'm willing to join the existing one

If there is enough interest, I would consider running a new game from the start with a fresh group. I would need at least 5 players total for a new game. This would run alongside the current one.


Spoke too soon it's among the hundreds of fully deleted ch apps. Long gone. Ohh well then.


I still have a copy of my ch app that was rejected I can drop in for a fresh new game only.

What do you mean by deleted character apps @BlackDragon0?
