So I was thinking about an introduction RP for Aarin so she could meet with some other characters.

I could go directly with something that dives into her backstory but I would prefer a more "generic" rp.
The problem is that I've got almost no idea and that I currentmy don't know the state of the timeline or the one of other chars.

I've thought about something like assassinating a VIP or something like that but that's all I got for now.

So yeah, it is to see if anyone is interested or have any ideas. (I will think about it on my side of course)

I'd be up for it, though I'm not 100% sure what time period either.

Latest RPs (that aren't "Legacy Era") are around 16-19 years post-fusion, and range from that maximum to the origin of my prime (Character) at roughly 2 years post-fusion, good estimate for time-frame.

When you say you have no idea, are you saying you don't have any concepts for what you might want to do for an intro RP with your character, or were you referring to a lack of knowledge about the timeline and relative time-period?
If it's the latter, well, that's at least a little clearer for you now; if it's the former, then just start throwing whatever pops into your mind at the wall in short posts (don't worry about the "don't double post" rule) and see what sticks, I.E: what garners the most interest in the other members and snowballs into the most viable, fun seeming concept (through "community" conceptualization, where everyone puts in their two-cents to their big hundo to build the most fleshed out idea).

You could also start from the potential character interactions. For example: my primary character (Espera Nota) was once human, and for the most part still looks the part, but he has long since abandoned his humanity. He started a large intergalactic organization that stands firmly against ANY racial supremacy (species type), scoffing at the concept of any species being capable of being "supreme" for the idea that there is always room for improvement, which they constantly strive for in a wide variety of ways. I can see this leading to a wide variety of interactions between these characters, most of which wouldn't be too friendly I imagine, especially if she were to learn (or knew from his reputation) of his interactions and relations with the space-pirates. There are MANY people who would openly despise him for this, I'm willing to bet she would (or at least could) be one of them.

In short, two fairly solid individual methods that work even better together: spitball tiny ideas with the group, and look through the available character roster, see who you think could have the most interesting interactions and think about possible situations where they could meet. I hope this helps.

I'd probably play as Talon Hawke since she's generally my favorite character to play, plus she can fit a lot of time periods as long as it's post-Prime 1(which the only game set before that is Metroid 1).

If you want to get her into something while you can't think of anything, you could join a bar topic and RP her to get her out there while you come up with an intro proper. The only active one currently is "In a Bar on Daiban", but bar topics are the easiest to start because of their "Half-in/Half-out" approach to canon, and the fact that they don't actually have a purpose other than letting people RP a bit. With no definite story or intended ending, they are easy to pick up and drop whenever. Jumping into one or starting one would be a good way to get some RP before you can come up with this stuff.

That's not a bad idea at all, I might do that.

Besides that, I've thougt about that proper intro thing and I think that a contract about assassinating or escorting a VIP would be interesting. (Maybe the escort could be an evacuation from some kind of war zone, but I don't really knows if it's a good idea)
For the timeline, I think something around Super Metroid might be good even though I don't know if you have chars active during this period, Sivus.

A couple. I think the most personable of them would be Rose, the other two are 1. an Asshole, and 2. f**%in crazy AND an asshole. Also, they're both OP as hell (when not in the proper crowd). So, Rose would be the best bet. What kind of VIP?

After fleshing out this idea a bit more on my own, this is what I came up with:

A secret agent of the Galactic Federation infiltrated a gang led by a notorious local crime lord, managed to recover intel about the location of the said crime lord and is now waiting for extraction by federation police on a space station (some kind of trading hub). Aarin (and maybe other bounty hunters) is hored by the crime lord to eliminate the agent before he is extracted.

You and Pinkest could either be members of one of the 2 "teams" or even just be caught in the middle of all of this, what do you think?

I could see Talon Hawke working with that.

Rose would be part of the "Caught in the middle" group. Though, if Talon Hawke is the Talon I'm thinking of, it's possible there could be stuff going on between the two of them aside the main events.

I made the first post.

Sorry, I know I took a long time before making it but I had some RL stuff to manage.

I'll get on posting once I get my character's new suit all written out.
I got all the concepts ready just gotta put it on her profile.
