The Ender's Game Relationships Discussion
Greetings all of ender_ships. I confess to not knowing how many people here may perhaps be interested in online journal roleplaying, but if so, allow me to humbly present the following:
The premise of the game is rather straightforward:
It's the twenty-second century, immediately following the Third Invasion and the League Wars. Earth is in political turmoil with each country pre-empting the first strike, usually with dangerous consequences. The most precious commodity in existence are the select brilliant minds from the now-defunct Battle School formerly under command of the I.F. More specifically, the elite once under the command of Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the military mastermind who brought victory to the human race at the close of the final campaign of the Third Invasion against the Formics.
Though recently children, the plague of puberty is the last concern on their sharpened, well-oiled minds. Each having returned to his or her native country, the desire is to lead a peaceful, uncomplicated life. No such thing would be afforded them, however, as one by one they begin to disappear from the map in a series of carefully constructed kidnappings, beginning with Petra Arkanian. Of course, it would take a dramatic explosion in Ithaca to stir all rebel forces into action -- including those political and intellectual, both secular and clergy.
Their beloved Ender, however, has gone off to begin his own journey at lightspeed among the stars. There isn't any telling where it will lead, or end. The identities of Locke and Demosthenes, the voices of the common intellect and their intersteller rabble-rousing, remain undisclosed. The world is on the brink of a different kind of colonisation war, and Peter Wiggin is slowly, and swiftly beginning his ascent to power.
The game will be launched by August 2005, and running on the LJ sister site, GreatestJournal. An applications community already exists here: http://www.greatestjournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=thefantasygame for ease of convenience. (Information and instructions are also located there.)
We are also currently most in need of the following characters:
Any and all members of Ender's jeesh, including:
