Lurker in Darkness



Disaster among the stars! The first explorers of unsullied VENUS have descended below the planet’s impenetrable clouds - and disappeared!

Fearing the worst, the fledgling Global Space Alliance has recruited its TWO FINEST AGENTS to embark on an emergency expedition. Their mission: to discover the fate of the missing crew, and unravel the secrets of the mysterious planet.

Strange beasts roam on the world of mists and jungle - and stranger still within our hearts!

Welcome to a retro-futuristic raygun-gothic science fiction planetary romance adventure, set in a solar system just a tad more interesting than ours!

The great Space Race culminated in the five year Lunar War between the Soviets and the Americans. Five years later, tensions are still high, but peace feels possible. To avoid another violent end to good intentions, the future of space exploration is tucked snugly into the united hands of the historic Global Space Alliance. But this future - and a fledgling global peace - are thrown into question when their first mission - to explore the yet-unknown surface of mysterious Venus - is met with disaster, its crew of five disappearing beneath the heavy clouds without even a goodbye.

Desperate to grasp victory from the jaws of defeat, the GSA recruits its two finest agents from across the world to be dispatched on an emergency mission: recover the lost expedition, and unravel the secrets of Venus.

Unfortunately, these agents haven't seen each other in five years - not since they faced off as rivals on opposing sides of the Great Lunar War.

The three month trip to Venus, cramped in a hastily-made rocket, was awkward. But the strange and steamy planet of intrigue and adventure may be a little too hot for even our fine heroes to handle.


  • The below expectations are for an ideal scenario. If this interest check excited you and you have a different experience to offer than the one I've laid out below, please contact me regardless!
    • Length -->
      • I'm not a stickler for length - quality over quantity. My own style aims to never include unnecessary details, while always including something actionable for my partner (eg. dialogue, action, or an intentional lack thereof).
      • Average 100-200 words, with possibility for far shorter posts in dialogue/action and far longer posts when our characters are separated.
    • Frequency -->
      • At least one post per day between the two of us. On days where an in character post isn't possible, an OOC post (just to keep communication going, to let each other know when we'll be able to post in character again) is preferred.
      • I also really enjoy rapid-fire RP, especially for dialogue/action where posts tend to be short any way. If we happen to both be on at the same time and manage to exchange 20-30 posts over an hour or two, I will be a very happy roleplayer.
    • Ghosting -->
      • If you need to disappear for a little while, you do you, and know that so long as I'm still around when you return I'll probably be happy to jump back into the RP. A heads up or a check-in is always nice but I understand that sometimes life catches us by surprise.
    ...but if you can churn out high-quality 1000 word posts on the daily, more power to you, and please don't hesitate to reach out.



If you're interested, send me a PM or respond to this thread. Try to include the following elements in your message:
  • Some notes on the character you might want to play​
  • Some specific plot ideas/scenes/worldbuilding/tropes that came to mind while reading this interest check​
  • Maybe some media you'll be inspired by?​
  • Any expectations you have for your partners​
