Namechange because of reasons and as a way of entering the new year with a bit of change.
But then again when you combine terrier breed dogs and space travel, two of my favourite things, it doesn’t take long before the name grows on you.
Also, no the name isn’t going to be attached to this RP in anyway.
Over the course of the past month Heaven underwent some of the biggest modifications and changes in its service yet. Decks were re-purposed the rank structure of the military was scrapped and the purpose and function of the ship was changed completely.
*Thanks to the cybernetic crew these changes were carried out with lightning speed and precision…
The Pyrrhic Victory
*The fighting continued long after the disappearance of the team of hero’s, hundreds more lives were lost as the army strenuously gained ground at a snail paced, gore drenched rate.
It wasn’t long that Sam became dissatisfied and angered by these constant failures. He ordered a single and almighty final attack targeted at the heart of The Corruption with the primary goal of wiping out the source of the Signal, routing together the remaining Tengu Elite he created a incredible counter attack force that was further bolstered by the full support of the Four Prophets and several hundred militant Fabricators, a rare sight indeed…
Rolling through the decks as one giant mass of troops they rushed forth into the Corrupted area of Heaven and deep into the bowls of the Necromorphs territory…communications were lost as the biggest fight yet broke out…The Necromorphs acted in self defence, pitting everything they had at this sudden and unexpected attack…but with willpower, discipline and loyalty the Tengu pushed on and mercilessly cut down the abominations…
After several more days of non-stop panic filled battling and a rise in the death toll they had finally arrived at the source of the Signal, the heart of the infection….bloodied, battered and mentally destabilized they marched forth…into the finale….
It was a Nexus..
The Signal Source was a Nexus….
A gargantuan Necromorph composed of thousands of corpses, a living work of evolutionary art. This beast possessed the unique ability of receiving the Necromorphs Signal from an unknown source lightyears away and relaying it onto the environment… With this ability it assumed the role of a command and control unit, directing Necromorph movements and attacks about Heaven….
The battle began and it only took a few minutes for the Nexus to proves itself as the most powerful and destructive Necro yet….hundreds more lives were lost as the fight went on for hours. In the end, 2 of the Four Prophets had been destroyed, a few hundred Fabs had been devoured and the Tengu’s were all but nearly wiped out….
It took the additional aide of the Sundowner to finish it off and bring an end to this chapter
With the the Black Marker sealed away and the Nexus dead the Signal was all but no more, the remaining Necromorph straddlers were exterminated and disposed of. When word had reached high command, Sam wasted no time in ushering in the next phase of Heaven’s rebirth….
When The Corruption was finally cleared and the corpses dumped and disposed of the crew were left looking at over 100 decks of mangled destruction and wreckage….Hallways had collapsed, tram systems were blocked, entire areas crushed….The Corruption had grown throughout the place like a great unstoppable root network, jamming and destroying everything in its way to allow ease of movement for the Necromorphs. The scale of the damage was astronomical and took a lot of brain power to fully comprehend…
Due to Heaven’s crew being entirely cybernetic they require only electrolyte paste as a form of sustenance allowing them to work around the clock with no breaks or pauses. After forming a plan of action they got straight to work and for 2 solid weeks didn’t stop for a moment…
Long story short the Habitation decks were stripped out and rebuilt from the ground up, in the end not a drop of blood or scratch could be found to show proof for the chaotic fighting that had taken place only a few weeks prior. The cyborg crew were well celebrated for their gratuitous work and received longer break period as a reward for the outstanding work
Heaven looked brand new…Sam was pleased…
I need you to zoom in….and enhance
(OOC: I’d say the chart is an organised mess, I have MS Word to give my thanks to for that. (will probs just remake this in an image editing program soon))
The personnel structure of Heaven was redefined altogether and ordered into a coherent command chain. But the newest addition to the ship was the establishment of a military academy. When the ship underwent its repairs the Habitation decks were repurposed for that of education…only students were permitted to live aboard Heaven as civilians were also forced into the academy for training. Refugees were no longer welcome unless they wished to enrol within the academy…for Sam it wasn’t enough to be simply recruited into the Heaven military, you had to be taught the values and develop you own understanding of what being a soldier meant and the pride that goes with it. Soon enough the ranks of the military will be replenished with a fresh graduation of new soldiers…
At one point everyone aboard the ship was stripped of their rank bringing about a rather peaceful period of anarchy, nobody held superiority over anyone and so they were all on the same ground as one each other. From this pool of soldiers people were plucked out depending on their actions during the Necromorph outbreak, The most loyal were rewarded with officer ranks and positions of power within the ship whilst the people who previously occupied the positions were shamed and dumped at the bottom of chain of command. This effectively built a rank structure where only the most loyal held the highest positions which in turn made them role models for the undisciplined troops who fought poorly during the Necro outbreak
A number of Battalions were born from this reformation, each one being lead by a selected Colonel who answered only to the General above them. These new officers are fiercely dedicated and will openly kill a man who questions their authority or the actions of Heaven
With so much time spent in flight above the clouds of Charity, GW had built up an accurate map of the surrounding regions, pinpointing locations and marking down areas.
After the reformation period was over Heaven finally landed and took up home near the cities of Fuyuki and Misaki
With the ship no longer in flight the Chief Officers were retired and the Bridge was closed up as it was no longer needed. Sam, eager to begin rounding up new students for his academy immediately made the presence of Heaven well known amongst the 2 nearby populaces…
The Recruitment Campaign
The streets of the cities saw vast parades and leaflet drops as the military rolled through, showing off every piece of their technological might and worth in the process
Recruitment teams begin setting up stations about the streets of the cities in an widespread attempt at gathering together new students. They promise things such as exciting military careers, new and highly sought after skills for trades, accommodation aboard Heaven and vast pay and support for their families back home. It soon became apparent that a divide was starting to take form between those who entered the academy and the general population as students were beginning to ascend the social classes as they were practically drowned in pride and honour for work at the academy. Students are easily identifiable as they all wear a basic RIG which they must have on at all times, whether aboard the ship or not.
At this current point in time Heaven has become generally accepted amongst the two cities and is known partially as a place of promise. Due to this success the academy has become overflowed with students as accommodation aboard the ship fills up. Around 2 thirds of the students live aboard Heaven whilst the remainder make a daily commute from their homes.
It is around noon and the academy is on break, students roam the streets before heading back to the ship.
The Military are stable once more
The Fabricators are shacked up as always
The SPARTAN Program continues onwards with Dr. Halsey at its helm
The Winds of Destruction are currently walking the hallways of the academy
Sam is busy inside his private room, finishing off any left over issues from the reformation
I’m still trying to recover from new years so I apologize for my shitty writing
