SRSS Yggdrasill

“Search, Rescue, and Salvage”

SRSS Yggdrasill Posting Expectations

  • Players were expected to keep up on their own.
  • Players were expected to be self-driven, not requiring constant prodding to post. The RP was far more free-form than a military plot.

SRSS Yggdrasill OOC History

Running from July 14, 2006, the SRSS Yggdrasill was originally a one-person plot in the General Roleplay section, started by Toshiro, also known as MM007. The RP grew once it was realized that the salvage niche had enough potential to sustain a full-scale plotship, which spawned a Visual Basic program to assist in determining salvaged items, and other things. The most recent version of the program used with this plotship can be downloaded here.

While remaining as a plotship for a while, the plot component was closed on December 2, 2008, and returned to a General Roleplay plot two days later, due to months of player activity issues and IRL issues on the part of its GM.

SRSS Yggdrasill RP History

Yuki Toshiro, a person informally trained as a technician/engineer, had been left the ship in the will of his elder brother, Yuki Kenichi, who went MIA in the Battle of Ralfaris in the year YE 26. When Toshiro turned eighteen in YE 29, he obtained the ship and rebuilt it into the SRSS Yggdrasill.

The Yggdrasill went on three adventures before taking on a crew, the first a salvage run at Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia, and the second a salvage run at Albini, during which Toshiro found a Nozomi-class Scout from the 6th Fleet named the Akina, which had been lost a year prior. After securing the assistance of the YSS Ayaka, Toshiro turned the ship in, obtaining 200,000 KS, and proceeded to Taiie, obtained storage space, and received a distress call. He rescued Yukisato Mizuho of the YSS Seion from dying in an escape pod near Xyainbor. He brought her back to Taiie, obtained chocolate for her, and united her with Ketsurui Kotori-Taii of the YSS Miharu. Toshiro got a 5000 KS reward for saving Mizuho.

He then departed Taiie, clearing his items from his warehouse on planet, moving everything to a storage location orbiting one of Planet Yamatai's moons, Midori no Umi. He then went back to Nepleslia, and met his first crewman Ken Miller, and hired him as a pilot. The broken-down No-L1-1a - Equine Small Cargo Ship that Ken piloted was given to Toshiro, and it eventually will become the SRSS Alucard. Ken and Toshiro want planetside to sell their excess salvage, at which time they found the ex-soldier Shaun Phillips and his Savtech JANE AI unit, Eve. Afterwards, wanting to use his 5000 KS reward to do good, Toshiro and his crewmen bought the freedom of a Neko slave named Tohoe Kairi, who was originally captured trying to answer Toshiro's want-ad for crew. Shaun became the Weapons/Offensive bridge officer, and Kairi became the Senior Engineer under Toshiro, as well as the Power Armor pilot of the Kylie recovered on that salvage run.

They then went to Yamatai to pick up Kairi's posessions, at which time the musical duo of Lain Irokawa and Reis Ivelian joined the crew. The crew then left for Lor, where they found the Helashio slave Serenity, who was from the Fyuunen House of the Lorath Matriarchy, as well as Miyoshi Remi, a former Star Army Doctor. Also at this time, Toshiro selected Ken, Kairi, and Shaun as Senior Crewmen, and started training Ken and Kairi to compete for the position of Executive Officer, an Elite Crewman posting.

The Yggdrasill was destined to find more than her new crew, as they encountered a pair of alien ships engaged in combat, in a war that had not yet reached this galaxy. One ship was damaged and the other left, leaving the Yggdrasill to initiate contact with the vessel. For its efforts to befriend the ship, the Sourcian vessel, Maras, copied a basic version of its base configuration into the Yggdrasill, giving it faster response times and a sentient status. Without understanding the issue, Taisa Ketsurui Hanako uploaded EIES to the Yggdrasill to commandeer it for the safety of all involved, though the Sourcian OS has since reclaimed control. The Sourcian vessel was soon the object of dispute between Yamatai Star Empire Taisa and Princess, Hanako and the Lorath Government. The Lorath eventually were proven to have a superior claim, as the commander of the alien ship, Ambassador Rebeka of Retana, wished the ship brought to her on Lor.

After being rewarded, the Yggdrasill crew was rushed off planet, due to the pending evacuation of Lor, and traversed Mishhu-invaded space successfully to return to Midori no Umi. After Lain, Reis, and Kairi left for Yamatai; leaving the crew for the time being, the YSS Yui docked with the Midori no Umi Storage Facility and inspected the Yggdrasill, rumors of its actions having reached home in some exaggerated form.

Offered with a chance to tour the famous Star Army ship, and with the mention of a mysterious presence on board, how could Toshiro say no? He, Serenity, and Remi all took the offer, while the others did their own business, and uncovered not only a Chiharu clone who would become Koharu, but also met Chiharu herself. Meanwhile, whilst wandering the base, Ken found an exotic pet shop. With in was an intelligent penguin named Kurio, who was instantly bought.

New faces joined the crew between here and Nepleslia's Ayenee Space Station, and Eve finally got her upgrade–a rather busty android body. On a tip, Yggdrasill went to a shipyard where Toshiro purchased a Sojourner-class ship, a Forin, Equine parts, and managed to recruit an Elysian scientist named Lyshana. Upon his command, Kairi dramatically arrived back into active participation by bringing the upgraded Alucard, the critical salvage from Midori no Umi, and five prototype IronMen, which were be used to repair the Alucard's final set of problems. When it was brought into active action, Toshiro promptly became a Commodore, now commanding two active vessels.

No sooner than that occurred did they find debris from a wrecked NAM Warship, and an escape pod. The escape pod, however, contained pirates who stormed the ship. After some finesse by the command staff, as well as some neck snapping and needle plunging by Serenity and Lyshana, the threat was neutralized, and they returned to Yamatai for some R&R.

During that time, repairs were made and the SRSS Leviathan was completed, with Shaun in command. The Leviathan carried the Alucard, as well as the SRSS-003 through 005 “Thor”, “Freya”, and “Loki” aboard as it followed the Yggdrasill to sour the Northern Frontier for star systems rich in materials. The six-vessel fleet soon found a system which they named Kenichi's Star, but Hanako arrived, stating that civilians could not claim star systems, and they would have to settle for mineral rights.

It didn't end there, however. The Yggdrasill detected a 35 year old alien radio signal indicating sentient life, which made Hanako pounce. The Eucharis and Yggdrassil followed the signal, unknowingly followed by two stealthed Nepleslian warships. After using the radio signals to make their own translation systems, Yggdrasill and Eucharis both began to establish contact. Toshiro elected to initiate contact with a primitive space vessel, while Hanako charging the planet itself, much to Toshiro's dismay. When the Nepleslian ship entered the planet's atmosphere to follow Eucharis, it was promptly obliterated.

As the Yamataians and Nepleslian massed forces in the system for a face-off, the Azoreans finally answered, wishing to meet with Hanako and Toshiro. The Yggdrasill and Eucharis descended to the oceans, as Leviathan was left with the alien vessel in space. They then began to tow the slow vessel back to orbit around their home planet.

While initially received well, the two alien vessels caused political unrest in the water world's government, spurring a mass assassination which nearly left the Viceroy dead. On top of that, Hanako spontaneously departed and took her military presence with her, leaving the job of ambassador to Toshiro. With no protection from his home government, Nepleslian ships looming above, and possible murderous intent below, the Yggdrasill's Commodore prepared for the descent into the sea.

Toshiro and Lyshana descended into the ocean to speak with the Azorean government, while the Leviathan left to explore Kenichi's Star…

After that was done, they went to the edge of Elysian space to pick up two new crew members. Their paths briefly crossed with Remi again, who had obtained a Wazu 4 of her own. After that time, they all went salvaging at Albini, and the two Elysians, Melissiel Parthenopaeus and Agrael Abdiel introduced themselves. Agrael promptly went into labor and gave birth to a pair of twins. Four MORE crew joined at this time, the engineer Kaosu Dasanteki answering a want-ad, Noelani having been found as a stowaway aboard Yggdrasill, while Otomo Suzune and Fleshmender Tsura Four Two 42-9518-6673 arrived looking for work at Pisces Station in a chance encounter.

Suring the Pisces Salvage Run, the group encountered a Geshrinari Light Freighter, which was playing dead in the presence of Yggdrasill and the two SAoY escorts dispatched to observe. When the Yggdrasill deployed Power Armor to claim the seemingly adrift ship, a Crooked Demon emerged and attacked te Yggdrasill crew. After defeating the Crooked Demon, the frieghter was discovered to be a Neko Slaving ship. Those responsible were arrested by the SAoY, and the Yggdrasill Fleet was promised the Frieghter…after the trial.

The Yggdrasill was sent to the UOC for upgrades to allow it to defend against enemies, and a shipyard was sold to Toshiro in exchange for an asteroid mining ship design. The ship's armor was gradually upgraded to Yamataium by “seeding” the hull with multiple huge Yamataium chunks, which in two years have not only completely replaces the ship's frame and hull, but also have resulted in a seperate culture and a secret Yamataium cache at the shipyard, which has steadily grown for two years. The Yamataium is stored along other materials, mined by the Hikari-Class Mining Ships constructed at said shipyard over the previous two years. They have since obtained the light Frieghter, though it is yet to be modified in any way.

Ranking System

Toshiro has implemented a ranking system on his ships to keep track of the crew. The ranks are as follows:

Admiral

Commodore

Captain

Elite Crewman

Senior Crewman

Junior Crewman

Honorary Crewman, Temporary Crewman, Emergency Volunteer, Passenger

Not all ranks will necessarily be filled. Commodore and/or Admiral will only be filled if Toshiro is forced to increase his rank due to administrative arrangements, and promoting others to the ranks of Captain and/or Commodore becomes prudent.
