View Full Version : Halo RPG - Covenant Ship Masters (Captains)

ok, so the idea is if theres enough popularity, I'll have this thing run, otherwise I'll just shrug and let the thread die basically..

the RPG takes place with you as whats called a Ship Master, or Captain. Ship Master is the Covenant rank from the Halo novels. I would be the Fleet Master, or Admiral. The plan of the RPG is basically, you take control of a ship, give me the ships class, ships name, your name (I can help those who need help getting an Elite-like name), and any history behind the vessel. If you want to know what the armaments are for whatever vessel, feel free to PM me. There are Battleships, Battlecruisers, Cruisers, Super Carriers, Carriers, Destroyers, Frigates, and Corvettes. If this option is also popular, I will allow you to control 2 vessels, but then again like I said, depending on the popularity. If this does lift off the ground, please people, dont all choose the Battleships.. seriously.. each ship class has a number of advantages and disadvantages, so choose wisely!

as far as the plot goes, Im open to suggestions, but so far I think I've got a rough idea of the time frame of when this will be taking place, perhaps where as well, we'll see. One more thing, I would Like to have between 4-6 people (including me) for this RPG.

well for example;

a Battleship wont have the speed as say.. a Cruiser, just like a Corvette wont have the firepower of a Destroyer, or even the shields of the different vessels. An Assault Carrier has more powerful shields than say.. a Battlecruiser. As well as other things, such as the amount of Plasma Turrets the vessel may possess, or even the armament in general, and its destructive power.

for example;

the main weapon on a Flagship-class Assault Carrier is something called a Particle Cannon. This weapon targets the Fusion Reactor from a UNSC vessel, and destroys it, and can slice threw several meters of solid Titanium-A battleplate armor, and destroys the entire ship. Firing that cannon, however, also reduces plasma power to the vessel, and takes time for it to recharge for another shot. This leaves the vessel depending Heavily on its 7 Plasma Turrets along its hull as defence.

Could I have a vessel desgined for boarding ships?

28-11-2005, 21:19
there are boarding crafts that use anti-matter charges to enter a vessel, however, you would need to force the occupants of the vessel you wish to invade to abandon the vessel for whatever reason, and as their lifeboats leave, your boarding craft enter through the empty lifeboat slots. Vessels that have this ability to my understanding include; Cruiser, Battlecruiser, Destroyer

".. follow to PoW" ?? lol are you trying to refer to the PoA (Pillar of Autumn) ?

and for all of your characters' names, heres an example for an Elite name;

Zuka Zamamee (hes not a Ship Master so dont bother trying to use that name ;))

sorry thats what i meant.

Can you give us a list of names for use to pick?

29-11-2005, 00:30
Covenant Elite (Sangheili) names, and their equivilant Human ranks

Am'hu Voramee
Mirta 'Artolee

Ryu 'Itairee
Orna 'Fulsamee - taken by Bmaxwell
Zona 'Ullimuee

Alk 'Adonae - taken by GM

please forgive the lack of a large list of choices to you players; these names are and were taken from actual canon, however, so the list is indeed short.

can we just keep our fictitious non-official names?

29-11-2005, 21:01
the names that I have provided can be used for your characters' names, or you can simply use it as an example as to what a name would look like, its really up to you :)
