Ragnarok (Non RP)

Recommended Posts

We are going easy on him DeSylva. And I do see that he promised to correct mistakes.

I for one, and I'm sure the others, appreciate that.

Just trying to keep the integrity in roleplaying that you and others have strived to achieve and attempt to maintian.

I'm just glad you guys (or the SC) didn't decide to bloody ban me from the forum, or something similar .

Oki doki, lets hurry up and figure out these rules so that the RP can continue... geeze, i'm going to have fun re-writing it (not).

And now my hero can't go out in a blaze of glory... or maybe he can?!?

3027 IS A GOOD YEAR TO DIE

Ok doki, I think i may be able to re-write the story before the rules come out (I reckon it'll take you guys a while to agree on them all and write them down).

Here is how Ragnarok is going to be re-structured:

1. Get rid of the new technologies (Rangarok, time travel etc.)

2. Undo DeSylva's Death

3. Undo my Death (may do that, 3027 is a good year to die)

4. Ask this time what DeSylva would say in the conversation.

Some things which are important for the thread which I probably won't change but might if you guys insist enough.

1. I put the fleets there for a reason, namely so that people from all the fleets can join in.

2. The insurgency attacking sol is essential to the story, SO FAT CHANCE THAT IM REMOVING THAT!

3. I'm now calling the Insurgent forces attacking sol the "Ragnarok Taskforce". For those of you who don't know, Ragnarok is the noorse (or viking) word for the Apocalypse... I think it means "End of Time". It's where the world is supposed to go into an ice age, with the gods verse evil in this big battle... and the remaining god/gods get to shape the new world.

4. The prelude is still going to be the battle at IO with the ragnarok taskforce... and after thats done, most of the roleplaying thread will be about the events that lead up to the battle... how it comes about, and why.

Seeya!

Geeze, the internet is sllloooowwww... today, it took me 20 minutes just to get to post this message, once it speeds up a bit for me i'll make the changes to the thread... although, still no one join in until I give the go ahead, I don't want accidently step on anyones toes.

Mostly because if I step on their toes, they'll step on my toes... then we get into a stepping on toe war between the galcom commanders. That wouldn't be pretty.

In the future, if it looks like i'm starting to rant on about nothing in particular... just skip ahead a paragraph, hehehe.

I'm redoing the info on my bridge characters, it remains essentially the same except there is more detail. And it it says a little about what happens to them and the GCV Myrmidon in the 12 year period 3015-27.

So far I've done three profiles, including my own:

Cast of Characters (Year 3027)

Name: Jerold Ryan Keenan

Rank: Fleet Commander

Species: Terran

Gender: Male

Age: 51

DOB: 9th September 2976

Assignment: Commanding Officer, GCV-Myrmidon

Physical Description: 6' 4.5", 95 kg, has dark brown/grey hair, beard and blue eyes.

History: Jerold Keenan was born in London, England on Earth. He went to St. Paul’s school and graduated in the 98th percentile. Later he attended Galcom Academy (Mars) in the year 3003. Graduated from the academy in the 97th percentile on the 27th January 3009.

Served on the Solnar-class GCV Delacroix as flight officer for two months until its destruction at the hands of pirates. The commander put him in for a promotion because of his skill as a pilot and was promoted from Ensign to Lieutenant Senior Grade. He later served on the GCV Dionysus as flight officer.

During a patrol of the space around Pluto the GCV Dionysus picked up an SOS signal coming from a civilian cargo barge, under attack from pirates. The Dionysus intercepted the pirates and drove them off to Pluto. The Dionysus pursued them however the only sign of the ships once they reached Pluto was their wreckage on the planets surface. Commander Samuel Cain, Lieutenant Keenan and a squad of marines transported to the surface to inspect the wreckage. 2 squads of pirate troops ambushed them, and the Commander Cain was knocked unconscious and wounded. Lieutenant Keenan took command of the squad and with his help they managed to fight off the pirates. For his skill in combat Lieutenant Senior Grade Keenan was promoted to Lieutenant Commander and was assigned as Combat Officer aboard the newly commissioned battlecruiser GCV Myrmidon.

The first mission of the GCV Myrmidon was a patrol through the Polaris system. During the mission, the ship was ambushed by Insurgent vessels, and then boarded. Commander Henry Moneo and Lieutenant Commander Caitlin Vern were killed in a firefight in the bridge. After their deaths, Combat Officer Jerold Keenan took command and so the Myrmidon managed to reach Polaris-1. Local Galcom forces destroyed the pursuing Insurgent vessels.

Because of the GCV Myrmidons lack of a Commander and because of how well Lieutenant Commander Keenan handled the situation, he was promoted to the rank of commander and made commanding officer of the GCV Myrmidon.

In the late 3010 Jerold Keenan given the position of CIOPS director, which he held until the ISS fleet was later restructured in the year 3015. In 3015 Jerold Keenan was made head of Intelligence Command.

In the year 3022, a insurgent taskforce consisting of 2 megarons, 5 Battlecruiser Mk 1 and several supporting cruisers, managed to sneak past Galcom defences and lay siege to the science station Gazer 1 inside the Pluto region. The station defences were quickly overrun. Intelcom’s Chimaera wing was undergoing repairs after a classified operation in Credian space. Chimaera wing, lead by Jerold Keenan managed to retake the station and hold it until Prime fleet reinforcements arrived. For his long service and command skill during this rescue operation, Jerold Keenan was promoted to the rank of Fleet Commander.

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

Name: Cassandra Dee Flemming

Rank: Lieutenant Commander

Species: Terran

Gender: Female

Age: 37

DOB: 6th December 2990

Assignment: Tactical Officer, GCV-Myrmidon

Physical Description: 5’ 10", 58 kg, has long brown hair, which she usually has down one shoulder, and piercing hazel eyes.

History: Cassandra Flemming was a gifted child. She was born December 29th 2990, in Seattle, America. She grew up with only one parent, her father. Her mother died in a shuttle accident in the year 2992. She went to the Galcom academy on Earth in the year 3008. She graduated in January 3010, and because of her high grades and way above-average piloting skills, she was awarded the rank of Lieutenant junior grade.

Cassandra Flemming was assigned as the GCV Myrmidon’s Flight officer in early 3010. She was present when the ship was boarded and the first commanding officer, and tactical officer were killed. If not for her excellent piloting during the ambush, the ship and all hands would have been lost.

In the year 3018 the GCV Myrmidon was escorting a convoy of medical supplies, munitions and food to the planet Sygan, where Galcom was attempting to rid the planet of all Insurgents present. The convoy was attacked immediately after they exited the Jump gate and entered the Sygan region. The Myrmidon and supporting craft engaged the Insurgent raiders, if not for Cassandra’s quick reflexes and timing, the Myrmidon and a third of the convoy would surely have been lost. For her bravery and determination in the heat of battle, Cassandra Flemming was promoted all the way to the rank of Lieutenant Commander.

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

Name: Charles Douglas Henry

Rank: Lieutenant Senior Grade

Species: Terran

Gender: Male

Age: 45

DOB: 3rd October 2982

Assignment: Flight Officer, GCV-Myrmidon

He went to Watsonia High School were he achieved fairly good grades. He also has an older sister, Jessica Byrd (Previous surname: Henry) who was once assigned to the GCV Myrmidon as Chief Engineer. After his graduation he signed up for Galcom at the academy on Earth.

There he met his wife Loren Henry (Previous surname: Anderson), they went through the academy together until they graduated in the year 3009. They were fortunately assigned to the same ship after they graduated from the academy, the ship they were assigned to was called the GCV Myrmidon.

In the year 3019 they married, and have purchased a home in Brisbane, Australia on Earth.

Actually Chavik, when DeSylva was not ever killed. I think there was either an attempt on his life, but he escaped and went into covert ops or the attempt on his life was a trick to make everyone think he was dead.

Either way, he's still alive and kicking!

I'd link you to DeSylva's "Fragments", but your link on the ISS Database isn't a link, and the old link (in the RPG Forums, there's a thread) is gone now.

Here's a quote from his Fleet DB Profile:

quote:

Flt. Cmdr. DeSylva was KIA late in the year 3000. An Insurgent bomb planted in the EarthCOM station where he was a visiting dignitary was detonated, killing both himself and his wife.

Command of the GCV First Light passes to its first officer, Commander Gary Renwick, a veteran of the First Gammulan Conflict.


And a quote from the story, "Territorial" from "Fragments":

quote:

ÔÇ£WeÔÇÖre here to brief you, Renwick. We felt now would be as good a time as any,ÔÇØ

Renwick nodded. ÔÇ£Certainly, sir. We will move to Operations immediately.ÔÇØ

Jeehun shook his head. That wont be necessary, Commander. We can handle the formalities here. Im sure that youve been having somesecond thoughts about your commission to the First Light. Im sure it has occurred to you that your promotion has been somewhat fast-tracked.

Renwick nodded slowly. ÔÇ£Sir, yes sir. I understood it was because we had suffered losses from our command staff.ÔÇØ

Jeehun nodded. That is, indeed, true. However, as you can see, he continued, gesturing to indicate the ship around them, this is no ordinary ship. It is a fleet flagship. The First Light always has been.

The rest of the sentence remained unspoken. It didnÔÇÖt have to be uttered. The First Light had always been an ISS Fleet Flagship because it had belonged to the founder of the ISS Fleet ÔÇô
Gareth DeSylva - before his death, at the hands of the Insurgency, in 3008, just before the Second Gammulan War broke out.

The latter was correct. Heh, I didn't know he "died" twice, until I read Fragments again. He did go into covert ops, right after both times he "died". Hm... If I'm not mistaken, then my assumptions that Scholar (from "Into the Fire"), is DeSylva, was right.

Hm... I guess I musta missed something, because I really didn't know he "died" in 3008. I am so overworked and out of the loop right now... Heh.

Then again, there is a slight conflict (if I haven't missed anything), because I don't recall DeSylva ever coming back after his "death" in 3008.

*sigh* I'm sooo tired right now.. need..... sleep....
