FTLRP: Pirate hunt

Postby dyno101 » Mon Nov 23, 2015 6:06 pm

Piracy has been on the rise ever since the war broke out.
It's a profitable yet risky business.
What deems more profit than being a pirate?
Hunting pirates.

"So, if you're hunting pirates, wouldn't that make you a pirate?"
"Depends on how you think of it. However, we hunt all pirates, and we're not hunting ourselves."
"How do you distinguish what's a pirate and what's not?"
"We know it's a pirate when we arrive and they power their engines."


No inappropriate content. Nada, Zero.

Our ship is called the Hexagon. Think of it how you want, I don't actually have a picture for it.

Ok now to be serious, here's my contribution.

Name: Melia Malachite
Age: 35 Vrachos Cycles
Species/Race: Rockman
Personality: Gruff, likes hitting things and finds aliens repugnant. Typical Rockman behaviour.
Skill: Can perform a lockdown of a room, much like a Crystal.
Pirate, Crew of hexagon, citizen or other?: Pirate

Melia Malachite is also known as the Missile Master to both pirates and pirate hunters. She used to work as security for the Grand Inquisition but then she was left for dead on a desolate rock. She would have died if not for a convenient cave of naturally-growing power crystals nearby which provided her with the energy and sustenance needed to survive. This also imbued her with some of the power of her ancient ancestors, the Crystalmen.

She built a spaceship out of the cave and set off for the stars to find those responsible for stranding her and to of course hit things until they break.
She is typically seen flying a pink vessel decorated with the typical squid-head insignia most pirate ships paint on their hulls, except instead of tentacles, Melia uses Hull Missiles to indicate her speciality.

Why missiles? Because those power crystals can also be repurposed into explosives (works like an Explosive Replicator in application).
For balance purposes, her Lockdown can only be performed if she eats a Power Crystal beforehand. So if on an away mission or boarding, her power is limited to how many crystals she can carry (like grenades)

---------------

Ok this is too elaborate :lol:
But hey I dunno, maybe I could be an antagonist or that exclusive bounty the Hexagon is trying to chase down but at the same time would have a friendly conversation with and help out at times.

Name: Grilsk
Age: 52
Species/Race: Slug
Personality: Greedy, manipulative, dishonest, unsympathetic and unloyal.
Skill: His telepathic powers are considerable, and he can control minds with a glance. He is a skilled bargainer, and has many underworld contacts.
Pirate, Crew of hexagon, citizen or other?: A loyal, hardworking citizen. (Kidding, he is the ruler of a slave empire, and employs many slavers and pirates.)

What's a pirate hunter without pirates?
You're in.
You could be an antagonist or that exclusive bounty, depends on what you choose to do.

Nice! Big evil score we have here.
You're in.
Just please don't mind control the entire Hexagon crew at once.
For those who are wondering, what I am will be decided once we have more people joining in. It depends on what everyone else chooses.

Well since Fireclaw's definitely going to be a bad guy, I think being the friendly bad guy is a good option to balance out the evil with... not as evil.
Like Catwoman and Batman. And I guess Fireclaw's the Penguin... or the Joker (although if the Slug starts throwing a coin around...)

I'm kinda going for the Jabba the Hutt look. Wait a second, Jabba and slugs are very similar....

...Rebels.
Federation.
War.
See my point?

Plus FTL is about a war in the stars...
See, George Lucas can't even come up with a creative name for his ripoff! I mean, Star Wars? Come on now.
