The Resurrection Effect
Out amongst the stars humanity made its first contact with a sentient alien species. Unfortunately, that species was dead. But a civilization just taking its first steps outside of its own solar system was not going to let something as trivial as death stand in its way. It took nearly a century, but humanity managed to not only decode the genetic structure of this new species, but to reconstruct that structure, resurrecting life that had been dead for thousands of years.

We called them the Phaedriades, the shining ones.

The Phae have walked with humanity now for another century, but their history seemed lost to them until the tunneling expedition to Mu Arae discovered an artificial structure in orbit around one of the moons of Mu Arae b; a derelict Phae construction that would come to be known as Altar Station. With a single minded dedication the Phae began to unravel the secrets of the installation. A decade ago they learned enough to locate what could be their homeworld. An expedition was launched immediately, but no word has returned regarding those efforts until now…

The Resurrection Effect is a guided collaborative story telling game using the Wushu rules system for conflict resolution and the forums of Roleplay Online for running the game itself. The Resurrection Effect wiki on Obsidian Portal is where all of the lore and background, including eventual compilations, will reside. Hopefully the robust forums of Roleplay Online and the versatility of the Obsidian Portal wiki will mesh well together.

Thematically The Resurrection Effect draws its greatest inspiration from the Halo series of games, though the universe and its inhabitants are entirely different.  The Resurrection Effect explores a time of war and strife, against odds that seem impossible and with an array of factions and powers, each striving for their own goals.  While you don't need to be a soldier to take part in the story, you do need to be part of the war machine.

This game has been set to Adult for two primary reasons...

The first is that I don't want concerns about sexuality censoring the story.  I don't know if sex will be a part of the tale or not, but if that's where the journey takes us I don't want to have to worry what little Timmy might see.

The second reason is to try to maintain a certain level of maturity within the game.  Between building the wiki and running the game itself I've put a decent amount of work into this.  I would rather not have it derailed by a monosyllabic Master Chief clone with invincible power armor, a weapon that can shoot through a planet and the ability to see the future.  Make no mistake, players should build characters to be absolute bad-a**es, but that's only because the threats will be civilization-ending dire.
