READ THIS FIRST
We are playing in the universe of Starship Troopers, but are blending attributes of the novel, TV series and movies. If you want more information, try wiki or the Mongoose Starship Troopers RPG (we used the RPG as the basis for this and as the rough history).

We are using a rules light system/home made system for this. If you are interested in playing, please have a look through the rules thread. The way the system works is by putting ranks in skills. Actions will then be based on a d8 roll with modifers. It is streamlined compared to tabletop games like d20 Starship Troopers as the rules light has a higher level success in play by post online gaming.

For those starting out looking for info there is the following threads are ones to start with:

Rules and Character Creation

Settings and Timeline

Once you join, if you need help, post questions in OOC or Character Creation - Discussion

Welcome all potential recruits.
