    Default HALO 183: The Not Remotely Gritty Reboot

    HALO

    Heroes
    Adventurers
    Liberators
    Organization



    HALO, an organization of holiness, light, fun, and roleplay! Well… The last two, definitely. Three out of four if you count those new energy saving LEDs installed last year. All of the above if you’re working with a strict definition of “holiness” that focuses on quantity of deities over quality… Suffice to say, HALO is the longest continuously running faction that focuses on fighting evil, protecting the innocent, and bringing interesting people together socially in this FreeForm RolePlay.

    The base itself is a physically undefined complex deep under the ocean and it takes exactly as long to get from one part to another as you’d like, whether out of convenience or for the sake of Narrative. That said, over the years we’ve ended up defining several rooms, creating new ones as needed, and even utilizing locations that aren’t in the main base but are still considered part of the organization. We’ve tried to list as many of the frequently used or otherwise important areas in the spoiler below.

    Spoiler: Locations
    Show
    Entrance Hall: The base's atrium, with the shuttlepod airlock at one end, the hallways on the other, and teleporter rings and portals lining the walls.

    Hallways: When a bored character is looking for interaction, they'll just walk around the labyrinth of corridors hoping to literally bump into someone. Notable features include, but are not limited to, neutral carpet, neutral drywall, neutral drop tile ceiling, huge windows to lookit all da fishies, potted plants at strategic intervals, and security cameras with microphones.

    The Pool: For when you want to go swimming without dealing with crushing pressure or the Deep Ones.

    The Training Room/Gym/Place People Practice the Fighting: From friendly sparring to training montages, even the edgiest characters need to stay honed.

    Kyrian and BR’s simulation room: Built by ancient members beneath the training room, this X-Men/Star Trek ripoff can get you as close to the Real Thing as you can get without actually having to be in the Real Thing, for any Real Thing you can think of.

    The range: Pew pew! Bang! BOOM!!!

    Labs: HALO members who are inclined towards the sciences, mad or otherwise, can customize labs however they want to support the more combative members. Or just make fun stuff.

    Library: HALO members who are giant dorks can be found here, reading books like a bunch of nerds.

    Strategy Room: When a mission is being planned or an operation is being supervised it has to happen in a room with one big screen, lots of computers at desks, and dramatic comms.

    Security Room: A small nook with a desk and a wall of monitors, with computers and servers stacked along the back. Used for watching and recording all of the security feeds as well as running the base defenses.

    Armory: Stocked with all the weapons and equipment needed or wanted. Members can store the specific gear they use in lockers between missions.

    Infirmary: Health potions, high-tech scanners, modern medicine, and really comfy beds.

    Kitchen A: Many scenes happen in the kitchen!

    Kitchen B: So many, we have two!

    The Dorms: Every member has a room to themselves that they can decorate however they want.

    THAT Room: You know the one. When you need a setting for a scene. Not THIS room, but THAT one.

    Aerial Base: Floating high in the air over the ocean is a giant island kept aloft by magitech. There are several buildings and structures on one side, including multiple hangers, air traffic control facilities, and secure storage for ordinance. A couple runways are paved on the other side. Prometheus Securities contractors work with HALO's DRD caretakers to keep the whole place running. When the Organization needs some extra airpower, whether it's just to get everyone to a plot or to help end the plot with explosions, they teleport up to the Aerial Base and use one of several aircraft.

    Fort Itude: A portal inside HALO's base proper connects to a Vulpanian military base located in Outside. HALO has many personal ties to Vulpanian citizens and quite a few mutually beneficial professional ties as well. Paladins of Civiron and Special Operations Teams can be called on to help out in rare situations. The Royal Clandestine Agency station inside the Fort is also willing to provide HALO members with intelligence on Nexus affairs, for a price. More of a plothook generator or barracks for supporting NPCs than anything.

    Visiting HALO
    HALO is located Under the Sea! However that doesn't mean you can't visit...
    1. There are Shuttlepods providing arrivals and departures on a regular schedule. The docking bay is located on a beach right next to a Riftline station, so just about anyone in Inside or Riverside can come.
    2. There are no active anti-teleport wards!
    3. If you can't teleport yourself, there are Ring Transporters, which link to (among other places) Mallside, Nexus's premiere shopping center.


    Joining HALO
    Joining is simple! All you have to do is...
    1. Walk into the base (see our “Visiting HALO” section above).
    2. Tell a Senior Member you want to join (Currently Felandria or Reinholdt?, but we’re looking for more people willing to take on the grave responsibility of accepting new members. PM Felandria if interested).
    3. That’s it! Welcome, new member! Please help the Organization out as much as you’re comfortable with and listen to the Senior Members.


    Helping HALO
    Now that you’re a member, you may be interested in contributing to the Organization’s mission. A few good ways to pitch in are…
    1. Plots! Whether you’re joining a plot or running one for other members, it’s hard to go wrong with fighting bad guys. Felandria keeps a whiteboard that lists all of the current plothooks with room underneath for members to sign up. Go ahead and find a problem somewhere in the multiverse that looks like your particular flavor of cool can solve.
    2. Interaction! While there is nothing stopping a member of HALO from ignoring all other members of HALO, it’s a lot of fun to make two wildly different characters hang out and learn more about each other. Civvy had a poster-board hung up with the names of all current members and the rooms she’d usually seen them in. Go ahead and ambush someone just to ask for their life story and favorite things.
    3. Represent! When you’re looking for something to do outside the base, think about what sort of plots and events are happening in the Nexus as a whole. There are all sorts of opportunities for community service and Org promotion to be found if you ask around. Go ahead and pop into public threads so you can work on HALO’s relations with other groups and the common person.


    Fighting HALO

    Villains, please read this...
    1. Conflict is great! It's the heart of any story, and there isn't much to roleplay without it. However, there is an important distinction between “In Character” conflict and “Out Of Character” conflict. In communal roleplay, it is considered polite to check in with the players who are active at any given time before launching an attack.
    2. Not everyone wants to roleplay combat scenes, and sometimes there are other things going on that players don't want to interrupt for a random fight. Either a PM/IM to players, a short post in thread to say (Mind if I introduce a villain here?) or a longer post in the OOC thread if it's a larger plot is appreciated.
    3. Also bear in mind that HALO is home to a considerable number of high powered PCs. Just because they are used to more social RP doesn’t mean they can’t or won’t put up a stiff resistance to any attackers. You may find Nexus players more willing to scale their characters’ power levels if you raise the subject ahead of time!

    Reinholdt manages to pull himself away from the fish watching window somehow and make his way over to here where he knocks on the door. Naps are better, but he's gotta get to business sooner or later.

    When Reinholdt knocks, the door swings open and reveals Felandria looking out of her window, watching fish.

    Reinholdt!

    Come on in.

    Glad someone’s here.

    Another fish watching window? Rein remembers why he likes this place. Regardless, he winces as he steps inside the office.

    "Achachaa. You can't phrase it that way Felandria. You're a leader now. If what you say sounds defeated, bitter, or downtrodden, people will question the value of joining an organization where that's the norm. Image is everything after all. Instead of 'glad someone's here' go for something like 'glad you're here'. Much more upbeat!" Reinholdt rambles his suggestions on how to properly PR.

    "Moving on though, I was wondering what your plans were." Gotta get a feel for the environment.

    Oh.

    I didn’t mean to sound defeated, I just meant that I was glad to have company, besides the fish.

    Plans.....

    Well’ I’ve been going through the paperwork and such, hoping to find all the stuff we need, hoping to maybe find a letter from one of the others.

    I do know that we need some staff for specific important roles.

    Medical staff, for one, at the very least a nurse.....

    "Huh. Well I'll keep that in mind when talking to people I suppose." Did HALO have a nurse before? Ah well. It needs one now.

    "But I recommend against paperwork and recruitment. It's been done before and I guess it works. A better strategy though is to just do things. People will see you doing the things and then they'll come to us." People coming to them is the ideal situation.

    "Fortunately you're in luck and I already have two ideas of things we need to do."

    Reinholdt tilts, then shakes his head. "Well the first thing to note is that Magtok is back. That's great! Business for us. He'll break a law eventually if he hasn't already. So we should probably get him a welcome gift of various furniture and things. He'll need the furniture and we get to bug his lair while we're there. Of course, some of the furniture will be bugged a little too. Not all of it though. I mean, we're adversaries, but we still want to actually welcome him back after all."

    That sounds awesome, I’d love to get him some new furniture.

    I’m glad you’re being civil, I would like my two closest friends to get along better.

    Is it weird that you two are my closest friends here?

    "Hmm... A little weird. We're both terrible people to befriend. I guess you just have a type." Reinholdt shakes his head in bafflement and holds up his hands in defeat.

    "I can be civil and still take that menace down. Honestly, Magtok's not malicious, he just plays with things he doesn't fully understand and gets in way over his head. And he's the type to keep going even when things are crashing and burning around him rather than admit it and back up." Reinholdt says as he describes himself.

    "You'll have to pick out the furniture though. I know nothing about matching furnishings or what looks good. All I like is a good bed and a pile of gold to go with a hot meal."

    Front Door

    And upon the front door, there is a knocking!
    Kind of quiet, as though the person on the other side is maybe a bit cold.
    "Hello?" Comes the muffled voice from the other side of the door. "Hello hello?" More knocking.
    "It- . . . it is very cold out here. Wherever here is. May I come in please?
    It's very cold."

    "Sounds like a plan. I guess pretzels are ok." Rein's more of a carnivore. Bread with salt on it didn't make much sense to him. "You focus on the furniture and I'll shop for discreet camera products?"

    [Front Door]

    A Reinholdt dressed in a butler suit opens the door. "Come in. Please, come in. Make yourself warm." For whatever reason in one hand he is holding a silver platter. There is nothing on the tray under the lid. But it's important he balance the valuable looking platter all the same.

    Excellent, then it’s settled, we’re going shopping!!!

    Felandria riffles through her desk, looking for her monies, because it’s time to spend.

    "Thank you thank you thank you~" Kin, the one-eyed lamia says, quickly dashing through the door into the warm. She breathes a quick sigh of relief, before spending the several seconds dragging loop after loop of very colorful tail inside after herself. After she gets her lower half inside, she sighs again, finally warm.
    "Thaaank you very much." Kin says, offering a polite bow of greeting. Her shoulder length blue hair, loose and unkempt, falls about her face, and she spends a moment straightening it out, before shifting her weight to one side, crossing her arms, and looking around. "Sooo. If you don't mind my asking. Whereeee are we?"

    "How are you money wise? Should we be concerned about funding?" HALO's always been fairly self-sufficient, but even so there are costs.

    [Front Door]

    "Ah, you are in HALO miss. You've been here once before. I was sleeping by the pool and was startled. Do you remember that? Do not concern yourself if you do not. It has been going around lately." Reboots, remakes, and reimaginings. Though as far as Rein knows it's just been some amnesia epidemic that's hit like three other people before Kin. Hmm. Maybe he should investigate the source of this epidemic. Surely it must be related to the Vault of Discarded Concepts.

    Felandria’s eyes dart around nervously and she rushes over to close the door.

    About that....

    I don’t really like to talk about it too much, cause I’m worried about people finding out.

    But I’m actually..........

    Rich as heck.

    The business at the Olympian has been strong, I went to space and found a buncha treasure with a new friend of mine, I’ve made some wise investments.

    Like, I’m actually worried that adventurers are going to break into my house to get at my monies.

    So if anyone asks, just say it came from the HALO discretionary fund, ok?

    "Oh! HALO! Yes of course! I'm sorry, I thought you sounded familiar. I'm just . . . Very cold." Kind admits, still shivering slightly.
    Curse her cold-bloodedness! "You are . . . Reinholdt, yes?" Unlike Civvy, she actually pronounced his name correctly! "A-a blanket would be lovely, please. If that isn't too much of a hassle."

    "I see. I mean, I kind of guessed. You have a very big home and those cost a lot. Not to mention starting a business takes a lot too. I just wasn't sure if things were prosperous or if you were overextending yourself for appearances. A lot of people do that for whatever reason." It's good to know it's the former situation though.

    "I'll keep it hushed for you."

    [Front Door]

    "Yes. We met here. And then in space. Anyways, please follow me. We'll get you warmed up." Reinholdt will lead her to a comfy living room and direct her to the couch, after which he'll fetch her a particularly warm blanket and drape it over her. Finally, he'll get to work on getting a fire started in the fireplace once she's settled in a little.

    One of the shuttles delivers a visitor to the base!
    It looks like it's Felandria's housemate, Honeysuckle, a woman whose key features include the blindfold, the black-furred fox ears, the two tails. She's holding in her left hand a darkly glowing orb about the size of a grapefruit, and steps out of the shuttle carefully, like she expects the dome to collapse and flood the place at any moment. It's so disorienting, having water all around except below, but not touching you.

    "Hello?"

    Scritches are made available.

    Now, off to shopping and pretzels!

    Not yet, we’re working on it.

    I figure maybe a potluck and a board game night might entice some folks.

    Can I get you anything, dear?

    "A potluck! I didn't think that was your kind of thing."

    'Dear'? Does she call everyone that?

    It means I have to do very little cooking.

    I would be delighted to give you a tour.

    Where would you like to go first? The pool, the range, the library?

    Well, she's not enough of a nerd to go to the library.
    And she didn't bring a swimsuit.

    "Range, I guess. I figured that you had better ways to not cook. Given how well-off you are."
    Seems like Felandria could afford it, certainly. But apparently she does things more personally.

    Cool, follow me.

    Fel will escort Honeysuckle to the

    Range

    Where members can hone their aim with their various weapons, wands and other aimable things.

    Felandria casually fiddles with a crossbow.

    Anything you’re particularly proficient in?

    "Yeah...no."
    "I am as harmless as a mouse."


    "In the militia they tried to teach me to shoot pistols, but I wasn't any good."
    She doesn't really remember the make, caliber, anything specific.
    "But...where are the close targets? Over there, right? And how tough are the walls? You know. Just in case." Seems like a great way to lead to a flooded base.

    She does correctly point out the closest tier of targets.

    From what I was told, the walls there are extra super thick for safety.
