"Space. Boundless promise. Limitless resources. A brighter future.
It's here that hard workers like you, the backbone of civilization, will help us pave the way to the universe.

I am Amadeus Hearthwright, President of HarpsiCorp's recruitment division.

When my great, great grandfather, Exeter, founded HarpsiCorp, he foresaw a remarkable opportunity among the stars.
His vision eventually brought us the railgates.
Spanning all the way to the outer-reaches of the Milky Way, these are the veins connecting all of modern civilization,
and the people flowing through them are its lifeblood. The railgates reinvigorated humanity, and are key to our continued progress.

You have been selected from among thousands of candidates to join the HarpsiCorp family!
This is more than just a job - it's an opportunity to be a part of the largest, most successful, and most pioneering company in human history.

Your dream may be to forge your own destiny one day.
Well, work hard, heed your superiors -- believe in the HarpsiCorp vision -- do this, and you too will get your chance.

Your first step is to join our Everwork program, the greatest gift we give our employees,
turning death into an ongoing opportunity for learning and growth.
With HarpsiCorp, death is a fresh start.

Good luck!
And remember: together, we sing the song of progress!"

WELCOME TO HARPSICORP. GET TO WORK.




And so, it is that time again.
That lovely time of year when I, RpN's resident Egg Boy, get itchin' to whip up a new RP. This time, from my favorite genre of all: Evil Space Corporationβ„’!​
This could just as easily be classified as a Fandom RP, but I'm putting it as Futuristic, because I feel like it.​
The primary inspirations for this RP are (with an asterisk denoting a major influence):​
Hardspace: Shipbreaker*​
Deep Rock Galactic*​
Borderlands*​
Slime Rancher​
Portal/Half Life​
CoD: Infinite Warfare​
Star Wars​
Titanfall​
And any other Evil Space Corporationβ„’ media that I decide to pick from as we continue.​
The Gist
This RP will revolve around (see what I did there?) the struggles, relationships, and rare victories of a team of low-level grunts, all heavily indebted to the interplanetary conglomerate, HarpsiCorp, as they perform their duties and, perhaps, fight for labor rights in whatever way they see fit - if they see fit at all. The RP will take place in a myriad of locations including but not limited to, our characters' home Space Rig, a multitude of alien planets, orbital scrapyards, trading posts, and various space stations. You will have the option to choose which department your character works for - Mining, salvage, transport, trading, R&D, etc, and can choose from any number of positions and skillsets. You can be a fresh recruit or a salty dog, but regardless, you will be indebted to HarpsiCorp.​
Not even death is an escape from debt - quite the opposite, in fact, as should your character perish for any reason, an additional charge will be added to their account. But fear not! HarpsiCorp's Everwork program ensures that, alive or dead, you'll never be late to work!​
Live complacently, sandbag your shift, or actively sabotage the corporation (at your own risk) - the choice is yours.​
The Rules
-All applicants must be 18+. No exceptions. Violators will be removed immediately.
-No god-modding/metagaming/powerplay. That means no controlling characters besides your own (unless explicitly allowed), no magically making your character always succeed at everything, no miraculously overhearing a whisper across the room, no omniscient characters, etc. Especially no impossible survivals of doomed characters (i.e. surviving getting sucked into space or something). Death is not permanent in this RP, use this to your advantage (Though, not necessarily your character's advantage)!
-Any decisions that may affect multiple characters and/or the overarching plot should be run by myself beforehand.
-If you're wondering whether or not you should ask about something, ask it.
Violations of these rules may lead to your post being "sent back" and/or deleted. Repeated violations may result in termination from the RP.
The Rest
I'm still cooking up the specifics of the plot and all that good stuff, but I wanted to put out some feelers here to see what kind of group I can muster up. I'll be working diligently to create lore pages, and soon after, a CS page if enough people are interested.
Absolute maximum is, we'll sayyyyy.... Eight people including myself.​

This is giving me major Outer Worlds and Severance vibes, and I am super here for it. Count me in!
 
Lore page is up! Much more to be added soon.

 
hey, who the fuck put henry ford and andrew carnegie in charge of space? get them the fuck out of the stars.
hi, local communist here. not sure if i have the time for a full commitment for a full charictar. but if a revolution happens and you need a morally fifty shades of gray revolutionary leader (Hi kids, do you like Propaganda of the Deed?) or two, i can provide.
 
Beautiful interest check, really well written. Super interested!

Those terms and conditions are craaaazy
 
Alright everyone, we've got quite a few bites here, so here is the CS page!


You can look for now, but I would ask that you please wait to post your CS until I have posted mine. I just wanted to get this out there so you all can start brainstorming.
Happy trails!

My CS is now up, feel free to begin adding yours!
(The only time after this I will tag you is when I create the main page, don't worry.)

Also, do you guys want a very simple discord server for organizing OOC or would you prefer to keep it all local? Reply here or tag me in OOC.

I'd always prefer a Discord for OOC but I could do on-site if need be πŸ’ͺ
Ditto ✌️
 
Also, slightly off-track, but would you mind sending us the code for the cs sheet if you would like us to follow that style Hard Boiled Hard Boiled ?

I don't care if you follow the style or not, but it's cool if you want to.
