A Wild Helmet Appears -- Zahara/Helmet Introduction

What do you call yourself? The Super Amazing Sorting Helmet of Alpha Centauri -- Or Helmet for short.

How'd you find Star Army? Wolfe had messaged me or rather pinged a group of us in a Discord chat about moving to a new RP scene off of Gaiaonline, so we all sorta went "Hmm, yes. Hmm, quite. For sure." Or maybe it was just me that did that, don't know. We helmets don't tend to think.

What interested you in joining? Space Opera, a change of scene after being relegated to the Guilds of Gaia with many anime themed RPs, after being stuck in that scene for a good... decade or more... you want to get away from the chaos.

Ever done this text-based roleplaying thing before? Extensively in different forms, but I'm used to the classic third or first person RP with the back and forth, stuff like the Joint Posts -- so it'll take some getting used to. I've RPed in MMOs, many Guild "Forums" of Gaia, some one off stories etc. It's been over ten years since I been writing and don't intend to slow or stop anytime soon.

Any previous experiences you want to share? Some of my more extensive experiences are from ESO for MMO RPing, small bit of FF14 and I've written a lot in both naruto and fairy tail settings and even gone deep into it. I RPed previously on another fantasy themed site, although my time there has been less and less in recent months and even less over in Gaia. A mix of drama and the same ol' same ol' has really put a damper on motivation and desire.

Now for the questionnaire!

Do you prefer:
  • Playing male, female, or other-gendered characters? -- I play Male or Female characters, I've never written anything beside that.
  • Spontaneous or planned RP? -- Both, more leaned to just spontaneous plans and just see how it goes.
  • Military or civilian characters? -- Uncertain, this is a new setting in general to me, I don't often RP sci-fi much. Will have to see where this goes.
  • Humans, androids, anthros, or aliens? -- All of the above.
  • Being on a starship or being on a planet? -- How about an a top secret research base stationed deep within a moon behind enemy lines?
  • Roleplay via forum posts or in real-time? -- Forum Posts is what I am most familiar with, but not opposed to trying new approaches.
On a scale of 1 to 3, what's your preferred level of these in your RP -- I live on the edge
  • Language: 3
  • Violence: 3
  • Sexuality: 3
What's something cool you'd love to RP? A sentient AI that attains its own self awareness with an end goal to take over a mobile suit or mecha only to be quarantined to a helmet... I am partially serious.

Welcome to Star Army! I hope you enjoy this place for many years and if there's anything I can help, like answering questions, telling you where to find something, or helping you make a wiki page or some character art, let me know.

Thank you both for the greetings. I've been sick as a dog last week or so, I apologize for that. Going to get back into finishing a character concept.

Yeah! I've gotten over the sickness, I've just been procrastinating hard and still a little intimidated by some stuff.

I'm just waiting for some art then I'll be following up with a character to Ravenaca's Watch.
