{This is an idea I decided to throw down in honor of the recently released "Dead Space 3". It isn't going to include any zombies or necromorphs, but it will try to have a dark and grim storyline that invokes it and other series such as "28 Days Later". The plot summary is below, and the rp specifics will be at the bottom.}


The Imperial Army Biological Warfare Division has been hard at work since the beginning of the war with the Republic, creating weapons of possibly planet-wide destruction in the name of the emperor. When the Cold War began it gave them time to continue their research, led by the mad Sith Lord Infirmos, until they finally reached the apex of destructive capability with their newest creation; Formula X-28-C.

Known to the team as the "Madman Plague", it would turn the infected from an increasingly paranoid person into a raving lunatic with a desire only to kill a normal humanoid in a span of 12 hours. Able to infect from ingestion or a mingling of liquids, it was meant to be put in an enemy's drinking supply and allowed to destroy the local populous, allowing the Empire to show up, destroy the infected, and recolonize the planet. A strategy only a Sith could come up with...

Finished on a large research/prison vessel where prisoners were being used as test subjects, Lord Infirmos has ordered the ship to head towards Alderaan, in what would be the first testing of the virus on a planetary-wide scale. Unknown to almost everyone some of the guards and crew have become mysteriously infected, and the 12 hour mark has been reached. Just as the infected began attacking the rest of the crew, someone shut down most of the ship's power, opening all of the prison cells and making the escape pods useless until power can be restored.

Now the ship is in chaos, and only a small group of survivors will be able to uncover the reasons behind the incident, try to save Alderaan, and hopefully escape with their lives...
This is a survival RP where only the most basic tools and weapons are available, and where clever thinking is the only thing that can save you. Any Republic characters will start in the prisons just as the cells open up and the riot starts, and any Imperial based characters will start off in their personal rooms.

Here are some of the rules of the RP:

1. There will only be about 4 or 5 open spots so that it is easier to manage, but if someone fails to post a response after two or three days their character will be killed off and their spot will become open to others.

2. I know this might make a few people not want to join up, but no one can be a force user. The plague turns them insane at an even quicker rate, and a few crazed captured-Jedi and Sith will be the big bosses of the RP.

3. Spelling and grammar are important so try to write accordingly, but I won't be a jerk about it if there are some errors and its able to be read. If it's too crazy I might ask you to make it more readable.

I'll post up my character sheet soon, but basically the sheet has to have the basics (physical description and a short bio). If there is something I need to know then I'll just ask, and if anyone needs to ask me anything just PM me. We can start once at least 3 of the spots are filled.

I hadn't read that this was for dead space 3, Now I feel honored So, will we all start infected? I could see Zusat dying like the deputy did in the Crazies, walking in to the fire to cover the others escape.

Here's my char sheet

Species/Race: Human
Name: Zaltura Rux
Gender: Male
Place of Birth: Corellia
Age: 21
Height: 5'11
Weight: 142 lbs
Hair Color/Style: Short red hair, unkept from his time in prison
Facial Appearance: a gaunt face, with an unshaven 5 o'clock shadow
Eye Color: dark green
Body Appearance: thin, and starting to lose his toned physique thanks to (once again) his time in prison

Allegiance: Republic
Profession: agent-in-training

Armor/Clothes: a white tank-top with orange pants (the usual prison uniform)
Primary Weapon(s): None
Secondary Weapon(s): None

Personality: A very down-to-earth person who prefers to keep to himself and sometimes lacks drive, but becomes very determined and ambitious when motivated to complete a task. Always loyal to the Republic, and caring enough to give aid to even his enemies.

Biography: Raised in a Republic orphanage, Zaltura immediately chose to sign up for the military as soon as he became of age, hoping for a life of excitement that he was denied growing up. Once enrolled, his ability to blend in and socialize with almost anybody made him a natural candidate for the Republic's Agent program, but right before he graduated the empire found their training facility and attacked it, taking many of them prisoner and sending them to the infamous prison ship to be used in experiments.

We don't start infected (unless you want to be lol), but there will be many situations where quick thinking is the only thing that will save you from death or infection. If you want to go out like a boss in that manner then sure

If we one or two more peeps we can start up our little carnival of horrors!

If you tell me why you think so then maybe I can change things around to make you reconsider.

Species/Race: Human- Caucasian
Name: Risec
Middle Name: N/A
Last Name: Astucia
Nickname: Ri- but only to family or extremely close friends
Gender: Male
Place of Birth: Nar Shaddaa
Age: 23
Height: 5’6
Weight: 140
Hair Color/Style: Bright orange hair, cut a bit short and left to do its own thing. A little messy, but nothing major. Sometimes it is in a comb over to the right side, but only when Risec is feeling fancy.
Facial Appearance: Peach fuzz (never really had much facial hair, and that is shaven and waxed into oblivion). Slight baby face, somewhat chiseled chin.
Eye Color: Green with flecks of silver
Body Appearance: Thin but muscular.
Home Planet: N/A
Current Residence: Prison cell/ The Survivor (his ship)
Allegiance: Neutral
Profession: Smuggler/Tracker/Sometimes a bounty hunter
Armor/Clothes: Prison garb
Primary Weapon(s): Pistol with several illegal modifications (these are his normal weapons, he does not have them during this rp)
Secondary Weapon(s): Martial Arts (more of a street fighting form though), knives (see above)
Miscellaneous Item(s): Holocom, datapad, hyrdospanner, binoculars (confiscated goods by warden)
Biography: Born and abandoned on Nar Shaddaa, Risec spent most of his life here, until a bounty hunter rescued him and his brother*. From her, they learned more about fighting and merged their knowledge of thievery and con artistry with combat. Risec returned to Nar Shaddaa and began smuggling for small gangs and Hutts until he finally stole a ship from pirates**. This was years ago, and he now smuggles for anyone with money in their pockets. He loves adventure, so it was obvious he would accept the job that ultimately landed him in the prison ship.
“*”- His brother is a Chiss operative. They banded together on Nar Shaddaa to survive, but now share a bond of brothers.
“**”- long story about the pirates- it is an idea I have for a fanfiction of Risec’s beginnings. If only I would continue to write my original fanfiction…

This will be my first rp- I hope that won't be a problem. If I need more experience, please tell me and I will hopefully be able to acquire some.
STATEMENT: I'm just a simple assassin...I mean bodyguard, master. You have nothing to fear.
