(Hi all, our main info thread seems to have gotten lost in the Abyss accidentally so I've done my best here using a 2007 archived version to recreate it. It should serve as a temporary fix until Greg can take a look at it.)



Aftermath RP
(Originally the GWRP)



~For all who are playing in the Gateworld RP PLEASE read the Rules and Regulations before you start.

Rules n Regs:

1. Even though this is a roleplay, you must adhere to the Gateworld Forum Rules (http://forum.gateworld.net/faq.php?faq=faq_cat_basics#faq_rules).
2. Even though this is covered in the Gateworld rules, I will say it again: Please no offensive language even if it is IC. I think the limit is up to 'crap' for any word 'above' crap please just edit it out. (ex: "oh @#$")
3. Please refrain from using chatspeak IC
Bad: Colonel Sharp walked in 2 the commissary, he grabbed a plate of food and went 2 sit w/ the other peeps. "Hey guys wats ^?"
Good:
Sharp walked into the commissary. He grabbed a plate of food and went to sit with the other people. "Hey guys. What's up?"
4. Please use 'proper' role-play format. When your character is thinking to him/herself please use italics and an apostrophe (') at each end.
5. When your character is talking please use quotation marks (")
6. If you do not know how to rp please do not join and possibly disrupt the other RPers. Just give me a PM and I'll explain it to you. :D
7. Please be kind and courteous to other RPers, don't make me go telling a mod on you!
8. Please do not RP until you have submitted your character here and it is approved.
9. No controlling other people's characters.
10. One of the most important rules: Your character canNOT be in two places at once! If you are leaving one area and going to another please post that you are leaving the mess hall and going to the gateroom. (or where ever you are going to/coming from)
11. Do not make RP threads, it is not an official RP thread unless a GM (Gen Blue or I) is the creator, or I said the person could make it.
12. The language of the RP is English and proper grammar, spelling and punctuation is expected. (Of course if it is your character speaking feel free to use improper grammar if it fits the character.) Note: There are many spell check programs available for most mainstream browsers. If you are having trouble finding one, just let me know. Also note that we have players from around the world who's first language is not English. So don't feel intimidated!
13. HAVE FUN!

I will do my best to enforce these rules and get Darren or a moderator to help if it gets out of hand.

RP Info:

The storyline:
The year is 2005 and operations seem to be going fine at the SGC. With the replicators defeated and the Goa'uld weak, the SGC is now going back to exploring. They have completed the new off-world base known as the Alpha Site, as well as a few off-world factories on the same planet. The Alpha Site has been code named: Gaia and General Nicholas Blue has just assumed command.
It's July 10th 15:00 hours and SG-7 is late half an hour, but that's nothing to worry about, it's just half an hour. The gate suddenly starts dialing 'Off world gate activation!' the voice rings as the wormhole establishes and the iris closes. General Landry walks in and looks at the computer as an IDC comes through.
'It's SG-7 sir.'
'Good, open the iris'
Nothing happens for a few moments and there is an eerie silence.
'SG-7 come in!'
Suddenly a giant grey metallic object comes through the gate.
'What the hell is th-' *BOOM*

The naquadria bomb explodes and takes the Stargate with it, with the bomb and the gate combined the explosion is enormous and Earth is destroyed. (Along with The Prometheus, which was in its bunker on Earth). As standard procedure, all off-world teams report to the Alpha Site and a new adventure begins.

History of what has happened so far in the RP can be found here. (http://forum.gateworld.net/showthread.php?t=61100)

A Nice Weapons Guide For The Most Common Weapons We Use (http://forum.gateworld.net/showpost.php?p=10481973&postcount=14768)
(Made by our very own in-house real-life military expert: Dragongate :D)

Saluting:
Over the years of Stargate RPing, I've noticed that many people do not salute correctly, I have most likely done it more than a few times too, but if everyone could read the hand salute section under this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salute#Hand_Salutes


Player positions. (http://forum.gateworld.net/showpost.php?p=4966562&postcount=47) (Look at when determining what team you want to be on)

How to Join:

1. Learn / know how to RP. (If you haven't RPed in this online style before, don't be intimidated, just let me know! )
2. Take a look at the biographies thread (http://forum.gateworld.net/threads/17234-Biographies/page17) to get a sense of what writing a biography entails. Then, once you've come up with a compelling character that you would have fun writing for, PM a biography to me and/or Gen Blue.
3. You and I will go back and forth discussing edits to the character's biography, and eventually it will be approved!
4. Once approved you can post your bio in the biographies thread, and start looking on the player list for an open team. Contact a team leader and request to join their team. Note: a team leader might require a few edits of their own.
5. Enter- your character! Start playing/interacting with other characters!


Biographies

Here is a template format, please adapt yours to match:

Character Name:
Character Age: (see rank/age chart below)
Character Rank: (Given by GM. BUT your preference will be looked at. It's recommended that your first character, if military, be an enlisted personnel.)
Character Position:
Appearance: (May post a link to a picture.)
Personality:
History: (Please include if the Character has the ancient gene, the history should be from beginning of schooling to arriving at the Alpha site.)
Other important facts:

Age/Rank Chart:

Here is an average rank/age chart, so we don't have any 20 year old Colonel and so I don't have to keep bugging people :D :

From the information of a useful chart located here:http://www.fas.org/irp/agency/aia/cyberspokesman/97aug/demo.htm

I've come up with this chart:
Average Age by Grade: (Enlisted)

Airman Basic 23.5
Airman 20.6
Airman 1st Class 22.5
Senior Airman/ Sergeant 25.7
Staff Sergeant 31.9
Technical Sergeant 36
Master Sergeant 38.3
Senior Master Sergeant 41.4
Chief Master Sergeant 44.8

Average Age by Grade: (Officer)

2nd Lieutenant: Around 26.6
1st Lieutenant: Around 26.9
Captain: Around 30.8
Major: Around 37.3
Lieutenant Colonel: Around 42.8
Colonel: Around 47

Remember this was based off of a chart showing averages so don't be compelled to make your 1st Lt character exactly 26.9, just around make him/her around 27 by a couple of years.

HAPPY FOUR YEARS OF ROLEPLAYING!


Hey everyone,

August 25th probably is a special day for most people, be it a birthday, a first kiss, or a holiday, but for me, it's the day that I (we!) started the RP.

Though very few of you have been with us since the beginning, and some of you know us as the GWRP, I've had fun RPing with each and every one of you who has been apart of this amazing game, and I'm proud to be involved with such a great group of people.

Four years ago when I rallied for an RP section, I never thought this RP would be so successful, and I had no idea it would last this long. We've had a lot of fun, and I think we have a unique quality that is rarely found in RPs.

I want to thank all of you who have been apart of this, for no matter how long, and I especially want to thank Gen, who's been a great help in managing the RP with me. Finally, I want to thank Darren, Sky, and Tame, for helping us out a ton, and making this RP possible!

It's been going kind of slow recently, but I'm determined to get us on some missions soon, and move us back to the bustling hub of roleplayers we normally are!

I know I'm having a great time, and I'm ready to have another fun year!




Unfortunately, I'm still in the process of determining what exactly happened to our 'big thread', so PARTY IN THE OOC THREAD!

Everyone who posts gets an Anniversary Green, and, pssst.

Someone told me Ainty's bringing cake...

According to Darren, he's gotten a message from a woman claiming a copyright for the name 'Lotarian', which AT2 had come up with here:
http://forum.gateworld.net/showpost.php?p=4571152&postcount=101

I've given the mods all the IC threads which mention the 'Lotarians', and I've asked them to change the name to 'Loratians'.

Well, at least someone thinks we're a threat of some kind! :P

Hello, I would like to join and begin rping. I have a couple of questions though.

1. I need someone to exsplain all the technicalities for this rp because I haven't rped in a rp as complex as this.

2. What positions are open as of now? (can I be a scientist? If not, what is the rank i start at?)

Announcement:

Over the last five years I have had the pleasure of participating in this amazing Roleplay with all of you. I have made new friends, improved my own RPing, and had a lot of fun. It is time, however, that the RP must be shut down.

I do not make the decision lightly, but I think it is for the best, and leaves the spirit of the RP to stand unaltered. As you all have noticed, I'm sure, we have just received our own folder to play in. What you have not seen, however, is the discussion behind the scenes. In order for us to play in our new folder, Darren said that we must now ("somehow") include the candid Stargate SG-1 characters. Just because the RP is taking place within the Stargate universe, that is not enough. He wants something new members feel comfortable in joining - with characters that they already know. You can imagine my response.

In order to keep the spirit that has thrived in Aftermath for all these years, I respectfully declined Darren's offer, and I hope that I can say I had the support of all when making the decision.

And so, within the week, the RP will be shut down.



Alright Sharp,

If that's the decision you have made then I'll be closing down the sub-forum and archiving the posts by the end of the week.

Darren


I've had a great time RPing with each and every one of you, and I'd love to further discussion of future plans within the OOC box if anyone is interested in moving off site.


~Colonel Sharp


PS: Please do not bother Darren or any other members of the moderating staff over this decision.

If you like people of Aftermath, I can setup a forum for us to continue. I know it won't be Gateworld but five years of roleplaying gone... I hate to see it all gone to waste.

Please PM me for the forum url. I will create your accounts for you if you like, just PM me your username, desired password and email address.

No I didn't. After I finished school and had more time Anubis (Steven) had Stargate Omega and offered me a position to help run it. A few from GateWorld joined me on their own after we got talking about starting up a RPG there in the Mirror Universe but yes it failed as we all didn't have time for life and jobs got in the way. Unfortunately Stargate Omega also went under so that ended it all.

HAPPY FIVE YEARS OF ROLEPLAYING!



Hello Everyone!

Today, August 25th, 2010, marks the FIFTH anniversary/birthday of the Aftermath RP!

I am extremely excited and surprised that we've made it this far. I know I say this every year - but WOW. I couldn't have imagined five years ago that I would still be playing this wonderful game, with some truly wonderful people, half a decade later!

I've had the fortune to be able to play with some great RPers from around the globe and I must thank you, the members, for helping make Aftermath into the RP it is today.

When, five years ago, my petition was finally accepted by Darren, and the Roleplaying Folder was established for the GWRP (That's the old name for Aftermath) I was both elated and honored. Today, I feel the same way.

It's been a wonderful privilege to be able to do this for so long, and so I must thank some of the people who helped make this happen:

Darren, Tamefarrar, and Skydiver - thank you so much for your help over the years! From creating an entire folder, to slightly less noticed tasks such as moving, editing, and renaming posts and threads, you all have been extremely helpful and I know that Aftermath would not be here without you.

I would like to especially thank Gen Blue.

Gen has been an amazing help to me. Gen joined just months after the RP started, took on the character of General Blue and, more importantly, helped me run things by reviewing biographies, answering questions, updating the player list...I could go on and on. She's my right-hand woman and I know I couldn't have done it without her.

Thanks Gen. :)


In honor of our 5th Birthday - I'm going to be editing the "Big Post (http://forum.gateworld.net/showthread.php?t=68048)" to include many new things including:


A Guide to RPing.
FAQs.
A history of the RP (IRL).
A list of common RP lingo (I know we had that in there before our original "Big Post" got eaten by the forum...
And much more!

There also might be something coming to base... ;)


WOOHOO! PARTY IN THE OOC BOX!

As well as an additional rule explaining language:

12. The language of the RP is English and proper grammar, spelling and punctuation is expected. (Of course if it is your character speaking feel free to use improper grammar if it fits the character.) Note: There are many spell check programs available for most mainstream browsers. If you are having trouble finding one, just let me know. Also note that we have players from around the world who's first language is not English. So don't feel intimidated!


More to come when I have time....including an additional edit to the timing of when this thing actually started within the stargate universe...originally I went by syndication date, but then something got screwed up some time...so I'm going to change it back based on US original air date. Now I need to do research and find out when exactly the Daedalus left for Atlantis...

Hi all!

It looks like I managed to find net access before I'm gone for a week, which is a good thing because I need to post this:

Starting Today, both JynJyr and SilverRider are being named to the Aftermath Staff as "Senior Members". Both members have been with the role play since its creation and I feel that you are both extremely knowledgeable about how things work around here.

As Senior Members, they will be responsible for helping Gen and I out with the hustle and bustle of the RP. More specifically, their duties will include:

Answering questions from members/prospective members that don’t require Gen or I.
Helping prospective members develop a biography if they ask.
Giving new members advice/guidance on how to go about things.
Helping enforce the rules by letting players know when they have violated them, and offer suggestions to help them stay within the rules.
Pointing out problems/concerns to Gen and I.
Maintaining order in the RP.
Helping with various things. i.e. organizing threads, helping with the player list/info post, etc.
...and much more! :P


That being said, Gen and I will still be the sole GMs of the RP and have a final say in how things are run (Also - we still hold exclusive power on biography approval :P).

What this means for now is that Silverrider is in charge until Gen returns - so make sure to behave ;).

Finally, note that Gen and I have the utmost confidence in both Jyn and SR's judgment, and will likely stand behind most things they say. They should be treated with respect and kindness just as Gen and I are.




Note that I know there are a lot of veteran members who might be wondering why they were not picked for "promotion". All I can say is that 1. I couldn't pick too many, two seemed like a good number. 2. Now you can help out when you want (as you already do) by directing new members, answering questions, and offering explanations - which Gen and I both appreciate - instead of having it be your "job" to do that :P.


So that's that! I'm off on my LOA, see you all soon! :) (And sorry sorry sorry for all of those who are waiting on me for things :o).

*jumps in since none of the GM's are around to reply this weekend ;) *

Firstly: Welcome! :)

Secondly: Check out the first few posts in this thread where you find the rules and the set up of this game.
To read a few pages back in some of the actual "game-threads" on the first page of "Aftermath" is very useful too to get a grip of the style, tempo and what kind of characters there are around here. I think you'll also find the thread called "Game update" useful, and last but not least - the Biography thread can be worth a look before writing your own one.

Once you've come up with a character that you think will be interesting to play; Write a bio according to the sheet in the first post of this thread and send it to the GM's: Sharp, Gen Blue, Jyn or Silverrider for them to have a look at and to give you some feedback.
Since you're on Probie status, I don't thingk the PM system works for you just yet, so try and e-mail them instead.

Don't hesitate to ask here, or in the OOC-thread if you run in to some problems.

Good Luck! :)

It's that time of the year again!!!

And no, I don't mean all the pretty colors from the leaves changing, or the ice cold rain that I've been trying to avoid all day, I mean.....



ROOMS


If you have a character that doesn't have an assigned room that is on the map- send me a PM telling me the room you want/have been using. All rooms on sub-levels 5,6 and 7 that are unmarked are available. Keep in mind that those rooms that are a. bigger b. more close to the center are often for characters with higher ranks (not that it actually makes that much of a difference within play). :D


(((Also, if my PM box gets full, VM me or e-mail me)))

To all those who have characters that you think might want to have join a team:


SG-2 is now back to active status and because many of the previous members were inactive, there are a lot of spots open :P

If you're interested, PM me with which character you would like to have join it.

Hi Everybody-

So you probably noticed that the RP is in a little bit of a slump right now, and I'll admit that this is primarily my fault. Starting about right after the 5th Birthday of Aftermath last August I started to be much much more busy in my personal life, and started having less and less time to come on Gateworld. Similarly, Gen has been extremely busy as well. Unfortunately, I do not see any immediate cure to my problem of lacking time for at least the next few months - and I don't want the RP to be slowed down just because of me.

Thus, Gen and I will be having a chat tonight regarding the direction of the RP moving forward.

All ideas / suggestions / comments / questions / thoughts are welcome. We will be having our chat at ~7:30/8 EST (about 5/5.5 hours from now) - so let me know before then via PM.

Thanks. :)

Dear RPers,


I am writing you today to tell you some news that pulls my heart two completely different directions.

I will start with the good news first.

After long talks involving Darren, author Sabine C. Bauer (of transitions (http://www.gateworld.net/books/transitions.shtml)), and MGM (well, Darren's done most of the talking), MGM has greelighted Sabine to put together a first chapter of a new SG alternate-reality book entitled "Aftermath".


Now, I'm sure you're as excited about this as I am, and I have talked with Sabine and she said she would certainly be interested in contacting all of you that are around in order to learn more about your characters, so that she can more accurately represent them.

For one, I'm really looking forward to this - it will make our characters live on forever and have remnants of the Aftermath RP (GWRP) live on forever!

Unfortunately, this brings me to the flip side of the coin.

Within this agreement we decided that it would be best to shut Aftermath down. You all can admit that we haven't been very active lately, and there are only a handful of us left. Initially I was apprehensive towards the idea, but as time went on, and we all had less and less time for the RP, I realized that it was the best course of action.

Believe me, this tears my heart open choosing to put to rest something I created over 5 years ago. But instead of trying to drag this out - I think it is for the better.


What this means for you:

Although all the RP threads will be closed, Darren and Sky have agreed to keep the OOC box open so that I can update you with what's going on with the book, and keep you all involved. You are all wonderful people and I hope this isn't the end of our interactions with each other.

So, again, I'm sorry my fellow RPers, but we had to move on at some point or another.

Best,



~Sharp

Hi everybody!

As many of you know, for about the past half a year or so I haven't been around as much as I should have been. This was due to some changes in my life, and I ended up much busier with other activities and commitments. Unfortunately, I have to admit that Aftermath has suffered as a consequence.

And so, over the next few weeks I'll be rolling out some plans to get Aftermath back on the map, whether or not my personal busyness is ready for it or not.

The first change I will be telling you about is also our most major change. Gen and I have talked and thought long about this, and so I am happy to announce that we are adding SilverRider to our Admin team. SR has been here since the beginning and has been with us through thick and thin - we love her and we know that she loves the RP as much as we do.

So wish her some congratulations and look forward to some more announcements coming soon.

(And who knows - maybe I'll even get a post in >.<)

:D

*dies* YOU were serious???? I thought you were pulling my leg when you asked about it. I though you wanted my input on how to make the changes, not add me to the Admin Panel :lol:

Buuuuuuuuuuuuut I'm not complaining........Thanks :D

HAPPY SIX YEARS OF ROLEPLAYING!

Hey Everyone. I know I'm a day late, but I still managed to find an internet connection! (I'm traveling abroad for a couple days). I know the RP has been extremely slow, quiet, etc., but we're not dead yet, and so I wanted to wish us a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Don't have a lot of time so I'll make this short and sweet.

Thank you to all of you who have been with us for so long. 6 years and 1 day ago I could not have imagined the fun and memories that would spread out from these series of threads. So thank you to each and every one of you who has ever been apart of this RP.

Thank you, of course, to Darren, Sky, Baggie and Tame for helping us out :D.

And a big thank you to SilverRider and Gen Blue. Fantastic players and fantastic admins.


As for what our next steps are, we'll have to see. But for now, let's eat some cake in the ooc ;)

I get that, but you still need permission from the RP's GM as well. If Dillon wants to this RP to pick again or taken over by someone else that's up to him. And him only.

As it is, I haven't seen in years now any new Stargate RP's popping up. Anywhere, if there are...chances are they are dead too. Just sayin'.

Hi, I'm new. Well, new to this RPG. I've been on Gateworld nearly three weeks already, but I've been lurking here for a week/a fortnight of that time. I admit, I have to agree with you on the point that there are very few RPGs for Stargate (or any sci-fi fandom) new/still alive. From the few I've seen, only 2 were relatively active (OOC or RP) - one started newly on a forum of my own, and here. And that wasn't just Stargate, it was all the fandoms I searched under.
