PostSubject: Torn and Mangled (Game mastered)   Mon Jan 03, 2011 1:57 pm

This is a dystopian sci-fi RPG; it concentrates strongly on roleplaying as in establishing your character's opinions and thoughts and acting according to them. The setting and plot are given by the game master (see this for further information), and you react to this.
Also, the world we are playing in is our world, only 90 years in the future; technology has advanced accordingly, but we concentrate more on society and the dystopian character than this. (not to the rather "high tech, low life" cyberpunk genre). The events at the beginning take place in Africa. (more detail provided soon, perhaps database)
Let it begin!

Torn and Mangled


You counted the days till your leave started; the few days that freed you from the terror of the battlefield, the civil war that had been raging for years now. Granted, it was almost over by now - the rebellion against the authoritarian regime was nearly extinguished - but you were filled with joy when the helicopter that would bear you back to the city took to the air at last. And anyway, much work would will have to be done after the war's end, and a break before that would be welcome.
General Moroe - one of the leading commanders in the war, a patriotic man who is dedicated to the army - is with you in the copter, heading to a meeting with the heads of state or something - you don't really know much, were only told to bring him back to the airport as soon as possible.

Kellan (ET8000)
The flight was calm and without event - as you soared along beneath the blue sky, it could even be described as enjoyable. The weather was hot and sunny - no clouds or rain impeach your vision.
Suddenly, a flash of orange beneath you. Instinctively, you tear the machine around, but too late. A loud crack resounds through the cockpit as the helicopter's behind rotor is blasted off by a missile. The change is imminent - you can hardly control the copter, struggling even to keep it level.
This far behind enemy lines?
And how did they know?


Cyrano (Deza)
"Damnit!" The general leaps to his feet, a hand on the ceiling for control. "Parachutes! Quickly!"
"But sir, we'll land right on out attacker's head-" Joseph, a man in your small group, protests.
"Bloody hell! We're dead meat if we stay in here!"
The parachute rucksacks are neatly stacked against the wall.

I grab the parachutes, quickly passing them to my soldiers. I notice that one of them doesn't look at me exactly, keeping his head bowed while I pass him his lifeline.
"Okay everybody" I shout, over the blaze of the fire.
"This is going to be one heck of a night, so get yourself mentally in-sync, its only going to get worse"
And with that I jumped out of the helicopter, hoping that my small group of soldiers would follow me, they would be foolish not to.

My day was going fine. Just fine, I think, trying hard to stop the craft from tipping over.
"Things might get a little rough!" I shout to the others, unshure if they even hear me.

Kellan
You manage to keep the craft stable enough so that Cyrano, Moroe and the other two soldiers can jump out; your own parachute is lying at the door, swung open and creaking in the wind.
The flames are licking at the back of the room, not far from the rotor blades; though their inflamement would mean that you would have no control whtsoever, the prospect of the fire reaching the fueltank is even more scary, as you are in a relatively old machine.
A violent lurch almost sends you out of your chair. The copter hardly reacts to your adjusments.

Cyrano
The rush of wind against your face greets you as you leap out of the helicopter's door, still pulling the parachute rucksack over your arms. The soldiers follow, jumping to the sides and preparing to unfold their parachutes. Kellan is late, but it was good that she kept the helicopter stable while you escaped.

I try to stabilise the craft, but it is impossible.
I do what I can to keep it 'stable' as I go to exit.

OOC: SQUEEEEE! FIRE IN MEH EYEZ!

Watching my fellow soldiers I open my parachute at a hight of 2000 feet.

Kellan
Grabbing a parachute, you dive for the door, flames already licking at you greedily. Only visible as black specks by now, your fellow soldiers are descending quickly toward the ground.

Cyrano
The parachute unfolds without a problem and slows your fall to a comfortable speed. You can breath freely again, and the rush in your ears from the fall goes and is replaced by pressure - the hight difference is taking its toll.
You see noone on the ground, but you're still too high up to really judge.

I slowly watched the war torn landscape pass by perhaps I opened it to early?.

I looked out at the spinning world as the chopper lurched again.
Staying was scuicide.
So, I jumped.

Cyrano
You glide towards the ground; noone is noticable even at a hight of 900 feet. Luckily, noone attacks you and your men either; but this is just as disconcerting.
Then, as you slowly approach ground level, you see a number of people - looking like ants from this hight - moving on the ground. They seem to be gathering around the place where you will land, as far as you can tell.

Kellan
You jump, gaining speed as you fall rapidly downwards.
Above you, the copter burns, then sways and is capsized. Surely the fire will have penetrated the fuel tank's protective casing soon, you know, but you are safe from that danger now.

They've come to torture us... I quickly yank at the cords to my parachute, hoping to change the direction somewhat.

Once my wobbling had steadied I quick unequipped my pistol and emptied the content of the clip into the crowd. After reloading I then made a quick SOS call on the radio, and waited for the response.

I waited untill I was low enough, then activated my own chute.
I could see the others lower, and something even smaller below.
I tried to radio the others.

Cyrano
They are very far away, and the angle is awkward, but you think that you managed to hit at least two of the people on the ground. A soldier not far over you follows your example, but notice that the General Moroe does not. He seems deeply troubled.
The attempt to change the direction is rather fruitless - though you manage to sway around a little and achieve some minor change, it is clear that the people waiting for you can move sidewards quicker than you can.

Kellan
You establish a connection to your comrades as you drift downwards.
You hear Cyrano's voice - he seems to be calling for help.

Shouting at the top of my voice I scream "WHAT DO YOU WAAANT?!". Then I un-equip my communications device, checking for response from the SOS call.

I heard some screaming, fuzzy in it's sound.
I could see them, too.
"What is going on down there?" I asked, half-rhetorically.

(ET - why fuzzy? There should be no problem in the connection Deza, your calll should be transmitted to Kellan as well as being normal shouting to the people down there)

Kellan
Cyrano's voice sounds, loudly, in your headset. "What do you want?"

Cyrano
A minute or two later, you are close enough to see more detail. The people, a group of about thirty, are not wearing the army's uniforms, and as you suspected, they seem to belong to the rebellion. Noone makes a movement to shoot at you, even though you see that they are carrying several weapons. One of them is looking at you with binoculars. You can see his mouth move, then hand it to another man.

(Any actions before landing, next post please)

Cyrano
You land in the midst of the group, which assembles itself around you, some with drawn weapons. You do not seem to be of much interest, though, after a quick examination of your face; they seem to be waiting for someone else from your group - you assume it is the general.
Kellan's voice crackles in your headset: "Who are they?"

Kellan
You transmit the message, all the while sinking further towards the ground.

I squint down at Cyrano below.
"I'm no genius... but I don't think they want to give us cake." I mutter.

Cyrano
"Off with the communications device first", one of the men with levelled guns tells you.
Kellan's voice, transmitting her last message, sounds in your ears.

Kellan
You are very far down now - only about 200 feet seperate you from the ground - squinting towards Cyrano and the others, you can see that Cyrano has landed and is surrounded, with the others being gathered up even as you look.

"This one?" I said, pointing towards my personal phone. I hoped they would fail to notice the difference, I hoped.

Cyrano
"Here." One of the men holds out his hand and takes the phone.
"Which one of you is the general?"
General Moroe lifts a shaky hand.
"Right. All of you, follow us."
The men take you into their midst, making sure that everyone is with them.

Kellan
As you land, you are forced to follow Cyrano and the others. In a group together with your fellow soldiers, you are led through the savanna.
