Severe Threat Action Response Force (STAR Force) Recuirtment and Planning Thread

Recommended Posts

***Potion activates with pre-recorded message***

 

"Hello Everypony. If you're reading this message, then you've been selected as a potential candidate for an elite force. A force that will put all of your knowledge and training to the test. A force that nopony will ever see coming. A force that will forever keep Equestria safe. A force that Equestria itself will never know exists. If you're hearing this message then I believe that you are like me. Tired of living in the shadows, waiting for the next force to threaten us. Tired of having no information on what's coming, and being completely defenseless when it gets here. That's why I need you. I need all of you. This force will be the answer you seek. I'm done waiting.

 

If you are interested in being a part of this elite organization, I will need you to fill out the form that was included and send it back to me. I will then reply with a time for you to meet me in a location yet to be determined that I will include on your interview letter. However, once you step through my door, there is no going back. I am building an army for Equestrian Defense. A force to be reckoned with. By accepting the interview you are accepting and acknowledging all risks involved. There will be combat, and you must be prepared to do what is necessary to keep Equestria safe. Take comfort though, No pony gets left behind. I make sure everyone goes home when the job is done. If you cast your allegiance to me, your allegiance to Equestria, you're your family, and all those you care about will be rewarded, and you will have the reward on top of everything else of knowing that you helped keep them safe. More details will be covered during the interview.

 

I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Black Ice, signing off."

Name: Yoru Arashi/In'ei Tate

 

Bio: 

 

 

Skills: Between the two of them, they hold mastery over lighting and shadow magics, as well as the ability to use many other spells and the knowledge of how most every spell works. Only one may be truly active at any one time, but the switch between them is nearly instantaneous.

 

Previous Combat Experience: Yoru herself has basically no true combat experience, but In'ei's many years in life of fighting to protect what she cared about, as well as the bit of fighting she has done on Yoru's behalf since joining together more than makes up for it.

Name: Loose Cannon

 

 

Special Skills: Loose Cannon adapted to her condition by learning echolocation at a young age. This gives her navigational skills in conditions which may impede eyesight, which she does not have. Her lack of sight may seem to many as an impediment, but to her, it's more of a neutral trade. 

Previous Combat Experience: Loose was rejected by the military due to her condition making her a 'liability' which she thinks was a stupid reason since they never gave her a chance. Recently she has applied for a new role of Everfree Ranger due to her growing interest and miniscule fear over the Everfree Forest. The government hasn't approved of this yet and most likely won't for the same 'liability' reasons. 

Any other relevant Special Training: Martial arts training.

Pony Name: Sombra

Link to Character: King Sombra

Special Skills: Dark Magic: The only brand of magic Sombra is capable of using. Its source is rage, and Sombra employs offensively or defensively when it's required of him. It is most often used in doing one of the things he is best at, casting curses, as well as creating traps that target a pony's greatest fear. Along with that, he can make doors open up onto small rooms or serve as a portal to another spot, so long as it's in the same area or building.

Crystals: Perhaps an addition to what he can do with dark magic, Sombra can make strange, black crystals grow from the ground. Spread by his corrupting influence, or used defensively as a barrier between himself and others.

Sombra can also turn himself into shadow and blend himself in with them, but never in sunlight.

Previous Combat Experience: Solely within the Crystal Empire against the two sisters.

Any other relevant special training: None! He has never had any special training; he's good at tactics and being crazy prepared.

Name: Jijing Fengbao (Silent Storm)

Bio: 

Skills and Combat Experience: I have trained under the best masters in the Fenghuang Valley, fought single-hoofed to keep the peace in the region, taught students the secrets to martial arts, and even opened a school in the region. Yes, I am aware that I am older now and my moves are not as fluid as they had once been, I can still fight. I see now that  despite separating myself of the past and settling down, I am bound to it. So once more I will take up my arms against the threats of Equestria. 

 

Other Skills: I have mastered the arts of Quigong, a technique that allows ponies and Quilin alike to heal faster and increase their stamina so they can fight on. This skill can also paralyze parts of an assailant's body to weaken their attacks and immobilize them.

Primary: Stormstride Cloud

Both have been accepted. Stormstride will be granted the rank of Commander, and Thunderbuck will be granted Lieutenant. Stormstride has a lot of combat experience, and Thunder has been trained by her, but has had little experience in combat however has potential for promotion.

You'll have to get an approved character in this section first. I suggest going though this thread to get yourself started.

If you do intend on roleplaying as Sans, the Free For All section is best for you.

Sorry about randomly butting in guys, carry on~!

Name: Miles Nigrum

 

Bio: 

 

 

Combat Experience: Being Sombra’s right hoof throughout his rule gave him plenty of experience fighting as an enforcer, guardian, and more. After waking from the seal, he gained more experience as he wandered the land looking for the one he pledged himself to. 

 

Special Skills: Between his weapon skills with swords and short bows, as well as the magic inherent to his species that he further boosted by pledging himself to Sombra, he is a formidable opponent. That is, if his appearance doesn’t take the fight out of someone on its own.

There's just not enough enlisted in this world.

Help spread the word around! We are open to all who want to defend! I've just been getting a lot of characters that are officer candidates or have established relations. I will agree we need more enlisted, so ponies that are good combatants that have little training would be perfect!

Kinda of reminds me of the old MI6 in the James Bond books. Bond did a lot of field work, but his offical rank was Comander James Bond, British Navy. All the 00's were an officer if I remember correctly.

Might as well try this :
Name : Tongue Twister

 

Special Skills : speak and read most languages (even extinct ones; she works in a museum as a translator of artifacts), and technical writing (not afraid of paperwork)

 

Previous Combat Experience : VMN (Vicious Mean and Nasty); spends months at a time in jungles, and family was from Las Pegasus.  Does whatever needed to get an opening to escape - feather rake across the eyes, punch to the throat, whatever.  Rather primitive self defense, but works surprisingly well against single targets.

 

Other relevant special training : none.  Unless being a cardsharp qualifies

Accepted. Due to the lack of actual training, and having basic combat skills, you will be an enlisted.

So, this is something that looks very interesting to me, but I have to ask, is there any non-combatant roles possible, like logistics or Intel or such? My char, while being a natural born fighter, dislikes being forced to fight, and would prefer to show their support elseways. To potentially head off a point, I know the majority of these would be field missions, which she wouldn't mind, and she can and will defend those around her... best way I can describe it would be like Dr Jackson from sg1...
