Hydroponics: Alien Fauna
Stacy--Main AI
cityship
In order to create a sustainable micro-ecosystem in Hydroponics, a number of compatible species of alien fauna were collected and placed within. Each creature is implanted with a monitoring chip, which also doubles as a control mechanism. A designated "keeper" from the crew can have the chip activate, which enhances the creature's natural stress-combating mechanisms, causing them to become much more docile. Also, if the creature becomes hostile towards a crew-member for any reason, the chip will activate and cause the creature to fall into an unconscious state, which a keeper can then revive them from.

Upon the opening of the Hydroponics section, information on all of the fauna within will be available to the crew. Some of the creatures in the Hydroponics section are as follows:

Stilt Glider: Lithe, graceful herbivorous creatures, these are among the most common creatures in the Hydroponics section. They typically move by prancing around in a manner typically described as "deer-like", but the wing like growths on their backs allow them to glide for short distances as well. This gives the impression that gravity affects them less as they hop around, gliding softly to the ground. They are adept at avoiding predators, but some eventually are caught. Due to their abundance, they are the typical prey animals for predators on the ship.

Skyyrk: Bipedal avianoid creature with ape-like intelligence and movement. Long, wiry bodies were the result of the slightly low-gravity environment from their world of origin. They have oddly shaped heads with a pronounced cranium and an elongated "snout" which has a beak at the end of it. Their hands have opposable thumbs, allowing them to make use of crude tools to gather food. They are also covered in soft, quill-like feathers. A very social and friendly species, these creatures were chosen due to their generally calming effect on sentient species that find their behavior endearing. However, they can be very protective of their young, and are known to attack keepers on occasion who get too close to their children. They are an omnivorous species, preferring small insects and fruits.

Quoran Tree-Eater: A large, quadrupedal creature, with stalked eyes, an insect-like mandible, and two arm-like appendages for reaching the tops of trees. Normally these solitary, herbivorous creatures eat only the leaves of trees, but in times of scarcity (such as winter) they can also eat the actual trees themselves. These creatures are slow moving due to the lack of natural predators, but they are known to be somewhat skittish at the approach of other animals.

Rajkan Night-Runner: A nocturnal, quadrupedal predator. A solitary hunter, despite its similarities to the Earth wolf. While swift and most certainly capable of hunting small, swift prey, it prefers going after larger, slower herbivores. It typically hunts in a hit-and-run style, pouncing unseen at their prey and taking off a large chunk of meat before dashing back off into hiding, repeating the process until its prey is dead or it has eaten enough. Extensive work was done to "train" these animals to avoid sentient creatures before allowing them to reside in the Hydroponics section of the ship.

Morl: A plant-like flying creature. They originate from a jungle world, with a rather humid atmosphere. Though capable of some flight, mostly they use their wings to float on pockets of hot-air, gliding from tree to tree on leathery wings. Their primary diet typically consists of small fruits.

Leenkant: A swift predator creature with a silhouette similar to a prehistoric Earth raptor. These creatures typically hunt in packs of 3 to 4, chasing after small and larger creatures alike. It typically kills its prey by slashing at it with its four normally retracted arms, each with claws coated in a mild venom that slowly paralyzes the prey. Like the Night-Runners, these creatures underwent "training" to keep them from attacking sentients.

Kyth Grub-Mole: Small, subterranean herbivorous creatures, the size of a small house pet. They spend most of the day burrowed, but emerge when it is time to eat, typically searching for low-growing fruit and leaves. Though skittish, they are rather friendly creatures (they respond well to being rolled around, as this is similar to their way of playing with each other). Due to their endearing behavior, they are typically used as ship-pets to boost morale. However, they do have a tendency to attempt to make "burrows" out of their master's belongings, especially clothes or something else that has their scent.

Fleth Deer: Another deer-like species, especially notable for its bioluminescence. They appear to be active at all hours, but in reality this is because some members of he species are diurnal and others are nocturnal. They are shy, flighty, non-violent creatures but not terribly intelligent. They are a favored prey species.

There are a number of lesser creatures, from bird-like avian creatures, to fish like creatures, to small, rodent-like creatures, but there is little of note about these creatures.

[ooc: Newbie Helpers List | Instructions: Post your character with one post establishing them as being podpopped. If you would like to play out them talking to the AI, please send an email to the mods making the request--we do this only by request. Then move onto the big Newbie Meeting. Once your character has gotten the rundown from the old crew, you may start posting entrance posts and freely tagging.]


||Pod Release Protocols Initating|| Stacy's familiar voice sounds out to all the podmates through the ship.

In the Pod Caverns, there are the sounds of: Pop. Pop pop pop. Poppuhpoppoppop. KASCHUNKhiiiiiiiissssss.

There is condensation and mist spraying out from cracks in the pods, as the people inside slide out onto the floors, covered in slime.

Game Ratings
Stacy--Main AI
cityship
This game has a split-rating.

EDIT: Note that now ratings apply to chats as well as the game. Don't go posting NSFW material in chat.

Sex stuff is PG-13. That will actually let you get away with a lot, given how most PG-13 movies are. If you're really hankering for NC-17 stuff, take it off comm to your character journal. We request that you cut and warn if you write out smut, even in your character journal, and try not to have boob icons in the first post or something, so someone can look over their character's friendslist from work without boob icons or smutty writing in their face, but that's just a request.

In general, this game is not about the sexins, though, people. Remember where they are and how dangerous their situation is. Plus, Stacy's always watching. Sex itself will be allowed to happen under certain circumstances, and as long as it's fade to black, it can be in the main comm, but please try not to let it be the main focus of the game. We're here to pretend to be superheroes and wizards and ninjas, not to cyber.

Writing NC-17 material with Under-agers. We probably don't even need to say this, but it's good to have it down because we don't know who will come along: since we do allow a few almoooost-legal players into this game, if we find out an older person is writing NC-17 material with another player who's under 18, even in their character journals, we'll boot the older person from the game. If the younger person does it again with someone else, we also boot them too (along with THAT older player). If we find out a younger player is lying about their age, we...boot both players (the older player should know that there's always that risk that the person is lying about their age and take that into account).

That's kind of a duh. This is to maintain a safe and friendly atmosphere for younger RPers, and also, um, because it's, y'know, illegal.

We want younger RPers with skittish parents to be able to look in here and read the game and the rules and understand that their teeny is not gallivanting about with freaky internet perverts, and that they're just hanging with nerds who still pretend to be wizards and stuff (which is dorky, but harmless). And to understand that we're providing a safe atmosphere for said teeny to hang out in and would kick any potential perverts out on their ass (because we would).

P.S. Yes, we allow teenies in. Not really young people, but if you absolutely can't play in a game without writing stuff that's illegal for a 16 or 17-year-old to read, we're not the game for you.

Violence is R The Alien movies were rated R, and that's about the level of violence in this game, and it won't even be consistently that violent. We know some things may push the rating up a little higher sometimes, but just make it sometimes, please. Your fellow players would love to see your amazing powers of description, but they don't really need to see them demonstrated while describing someone's intestines getting ripped out in excruciating detail.

Language is...tricky. Some of these characters drop the F-bomb like crazy canonically. Problem is, some players--including one of your intrepid mods, check in from work when there's dry spells of boredom, and some younger players have parents that might peek over their shoulders wonder what the heck it is they're doing.

Rather than name a specific rating, players are to use warnings, and cuts if the main post has cursing. Whoever popped up the first post, edit in [R for Cussing] somewhere in the subject or the body at the bottom if it gets curse-heavy. That's for just interacty posts in the comm.

For group posts, like a mission, or podpop, or a plot post where there's a large group of people and everyone needs to be able to see the thread, we're going to request that players censor. Yeah, it sucks, but #@%$ing #@$hole still gets the message across and won't ping on anyone's work's computer monitoring software.

We know another option is "Don't RP from work," but even some of the mods pop in sometimes to help out with npcing from work or school computers with monitoring software, and if censoring isn't done in group stuff, they won't really be able to help by doing that anymore.

"Trigger" issues. Suicide, sexual abuse, rape, cutting, etc. We hope we don't see those overdone, but if they do show up, 1) test the waters and make sure what you're planning won't freak out someone who would have to deal with it because of character relationships between your and their characters or something, 2) Cuts and warnings.
