Big Things Have Small Beginnings is a neo-noir scifi RPG, based on the works of Ridley Scott (think: the brilliant mind behind the films Alien, Blade Runner, and Prometheus). We're set in the year 2093, thirty years before Ripley's ship took off. Weyland Industries, the face of new technology and advanced space travel, funded Project Prometheus. They set out to discovered the origins of mankind...and found so much more. Mankind is now reeling with the new discovery. Meanwhile, infections are spreading in other colonies, the military outpost is training in the event of an alien attack, and rescue ships have been sent out to find Prometheus. The space race is over; now, it's a race for survival.

We are an advanced, LITERATE roleplaying site. Although we do not have a minimum word count, per se (we only want quality work here, rather than our writers pushing themselves to churn out words, words, and more words), we encourage our writers not to write less than 500 words per post. This, we believe, is reasonable. After all, you are writing your characters thoughts. Movements. Personality "quirks."
Please apply with a first name and last name ONLY. No middle name. No middle initial. The character name should be in all caps. Ex: JOHN DOE. If you're signing up an an Android, sign up with the Android's name and model number. Ex: DAVID 8. If you mess up, it's fine. PM a mod, and she will fix it for you.
This board is rated M for Mature. We allow language, violence, and sex on this board, but each thread that involves excessive violence, and/or sex, must be clearly marked with an [M] somewhere in the title.
Do not god-mode. No one likes someone else moving their character around. Do not steal another person's work. If we discover any god-moding, or plagiarism, we will deal with it as we see fit. This, more than likely, will include either a warning (for the prior offense), or expulsion from the site (for the latter).
If you are creating an original character, the ONLY play-bys allowed are actors, actresses, singers, or models. No Myspace queens. No people who are famous just because they sat in front of a webcam. We reserve the right to deny any play-by, for this or other reasons.
Be nice to one another. Drama should be kept OUT of the chatbox. If you have a problem with another player, don't work it out with insults. Either PM an administrator, or deal with it yourselves. No spamming. Do not suddenly flood the chatbox with links to your site, and do not whine about, "Ooh, no one replied to my open thread. Wahh."
Avatars are a maximum of 200x300. Signatures have a max width of 500. Please do not stretch the board. We will PM you if your graphics are too large. DOHTML is enabled for signatures, so feel free to use it. Avatars are required. Signatures are not.
We don't expect you to be online every single day. That's just impractical. We would, however, like for you to log online at least three or four times a week. Four is preferable. We would like to see you return at least one comment a week, though more is preferable. If you are going to be gone for more than one week, please post in the "AWAY" board, located in the "OFF TOPIC" section. We will have regular activity checks. We will give fair warning, so you can make arrangements in case you won't be here, for whatever reason.
