This RP is based on the mythos surrounding the very popular video game series, Halo: Combat Evolved. If you haven't heard of it, I have no idea how you heard about the site, considering the most popular machinima is based on the Halo series.
Twenty-eight years have passed since the very first encounter with the Covenant on Harvest. They havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t stopped. They havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t relented from the destruction of our worlds. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve done our best to fight them off. Dr. HalseyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Spartan-II program has helped, but so far nothing has been able to stop them.
Spire was one of the UNSCÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s only hopes left.
The most heavily armed Outer Colony; Spire was nothing more than a military outpost with civilian colonization having taken up a small fraction of the population. The defensive capabilities of the planet were considered one of the best under UNSC operation, second only to Reach.
In a split second, though, all things can change for the worst.
A few months before the Fall of Reach, many of the colonies within a slipspace jump began to fall to the Covenant armada, unyielding to the fleets attempting to protect them. Spire became a center of attention for the UNSC because of its importance to the defense of Earth. Many of the colonies that were falling led along a direct path to Spire. A mass evacuation was put into effect as many of the planetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s refugees fled for the Inner Colonies closer to Earth.
With that, reinforcements were sent to Spire. One of the first groups to volunteer was the much-regarded ODST Whiskey Company.
This is their story.
--You aren't God, don't try to be him.
--Yes, you have to be an ODST, no Spartans are available on Spire.
--This is an Halo-based RP, please keep everything in the confines of the Halo mythos, except for maybe a few obscure pop culture references.
--The RP is about warfare, not sex. Feel free to let your characters grow bonds, but please don't go as far as some people.
--Any weapons from the Halo series are fine, no matter which game.
-- PLEASE: Respect these rules, the other rpers, and myself. If you respect everyone, everyone will respect you and this will make things much easier.
