PostSubject: All The Lights In The Sky   Thu Sep 19, 2013 9:34 am

I figured I should get my own RP up.

The Story so far:

In the year 2042 of the Common calendar, the Space Race on the planet Thasis ended and commercial space travel exploded. While it had once been limited to a select few, space was now available to everyone.

You, a humble (ha, ha) little Thassyn entrepreneur, have been given some start-up money to begin your own corporation. Whether you build, launch, fly, or fuel the rockets and spaceplanes that go up, not even the sky is the limit.

Year 2050. The new Mass Driver launch system now allows the launching of craft without the need for super-heavy boosters. Available to anyone, for a hefty price. Private corporations and groups are everywhere.

Rules. Aside from the standard rules (which are in every RP),
1. You start small. Regardless of how you plan to operate, you can't start launching colony ships and God rockets right off the bat. You have a maximum of 5 rockets and 2 spaceplanes.
2. You can't play a government. The planetary government (Thasis Coalition) will be played by me, and serve as the moderator faction.
3. You want weapons in space, you need to go through the government paperwork. The main weapon is a laser, and even those are extremely rare.
4. You may not lay claim to any planet or moon. Ever. At all.

The Star System
Spoiler:
 

NOTE: It's assumed that when you design a ship, it's purpose-built to get to the planet you intend to send it to, and cannot go to another without refuelling or refit.

Accepted, but FYI: There's no real formal application. If you want, I can rez one, but just go by the limit of spacecraft in the OP (5 rockets, 2 spaceplanes).

If you want to expand your fleet, ask. Razz Money isn't really an issue, given that Thasis has no formal currency- it's done mainly with trade goods.


If you think this needs a formal app sheet, say so.

If they don't state a company name, CEO name, and fleet within their first 2 posts, they're ignored.
*sigh* applications are so mainstream.
Accepted, Daynel. Post yer fleets, guys?

----Thasis Coalition Announces Extrasolar Colonies----
//Today at the Thasis Space Center, government officials announced their intention to construct an extrasolar colony initiative. This project would place several "space cities" beyond the orbit of the furthest planets in our system, giving them an excellent location to research the effects of zero-gravity and many other scientific questions.

//The first colony vessel, Sky Sailor, will be launched in on year, said Minister of Space Jebediah Kerman. The vessel will carry 600 colonists and 200 scientists, and may well become our first interstellar spacecraft.

//A number of corporation, including Red Tail Industries, have applied to produce engines, hulls, and other equipment for the vessel. as of yet, the government has no reply to these groups.

They're accepted, Fen.

@Tiel Pretty much.

@Proto There's no limit on how many boosters a corporation can own.
