Dinosaur Island RPG

Where good and bad RPGs and E-wars go to die.

Dinosaur Island RPG

Postby dinoman666 » Wed Mar 09, 2011 8:00 pm

In the year 2010, a secret branch of the U.S. government known as the Office of Biological Studies (OBS) had discovered one of the many tiny, unmapped islands in the Pacific Ocean. After establishing a military outpost and research base here, OBS began to look into the ever-elusive subject of resurrection of prehistoric creatures, specifically dinosaurs. These reborn creatures would serve as biological warfare weapons that few could stand against. The so-called “Project Resurrection” was highly successful, and lasted for five years.

However, communication at this point was abruptly cut off from the island. Following procedure, the U.S. government refused to send any investigation teams for at least 6 months because of the sheer secrecy of this project.

Now, six months after the event, in 2015, a single aircraft carrier is sent to the island, carrying a squad of hired mercenaries and a single employee of OBS to investigate what has happened, and to see if the operation can be salvaged...

Rules:

1. No powerplaying (no characters who are incredibly powerful and capable of killing everything in their path). Hopefully, since the characters will be almost exclusively modern humans, this won’t be a major issue.
2. No single sentence posts will be allowed unless they are useful to another player (ex: conversations that need the player being talked to to respond).
3. This RPG is more lenient about the killing of player characters. Some will die, that much is for certain, and characters can even kill each other, but only if it is realistic to do so. No slaughtering characters whenever you feel like it.
4. When writing in OOC, you MUST include some in-game writing about your character as well.
5. If you control a mercenary character, you are NOT allowed to control dinosaurs. If your character dies while on the island, or you are late to join the RPG, then you are free to use whatever dinos you wish to terrorize the humans (within reason, of course).

Species:

Carnivores:

Velociraptor mongoliensis:

Length: 7 ft
Height: 2 ft at the hip
Weight: 30 lbs

Velociraptor is one of the most common predators on the island, traveling in large packs of 10-20 individuals. While small, they are remarkably intelligent and use cooperative pack-hunting techniques to bring down much larger prey. The sickle claw on the second toe of each foot is used primarily for piercing instead of slashing (though it can cut through thinner flesh in exposed areas on a prey item’s body). Velociraptors, like all theropods on the island, are territorial and very vicious. They do not shy away from large animals, and will attack humans on sight if hungry enough. Their bodies are covered in a coat of downy feathers, and they have more well-developed feathers on their arms, used primarily for display and insulation.

Deinonychus antirrhopus:

Length: 11 ft
Height: 3 ft at the hip
Weight: 160 lbs

Deinonychus is, in many ways, identical to Velociraptor in terms of physical features and behavior, but is far larger and more dangerous. Deinonychus live in packs of 5-10 and hunt on the more open plains of the island, compared to the forests where their smaller cousins dwell. Deinonychus’ snout is shorter and stockier than that of a Velociraptor, giving it a far more powerful bite (equal to that of an American alligator). They have a feathery covering similar to Velociraptor.

Utahraptor ostrommaysorum:

Length: 23 ft (reports of a Utahraptor with a length of nearly 36 ft are unconfirmed)
Height: 6 ft at the hip
Weight: 1,100 lbs

Utahraptor is the largest dromaeosaurid created on the island, and by far the most deadly. They are rarely found in groups, and are usually limited to pairs or simply alone. They hunt on the same plains that Deinonychus do, and the two species often come into conflict over territory. Their feathery body coverings are less ornate than those of Deinonychus or Velociraptor. Utahraptor is, for the most part, identical to its smaller cousins, but exponentially more deadly. The foot-long sickle claw on its toe can pierce through a human’s skull.

Dilophosaurus wetherilli:

Length: 20 ft
Height: 5 ft at the hip
Weight: 1,000 lbs

Inspired by the Jurassic Park franchise, OBS genetically altered the Dilophosaurus when they resurrected it, giving it the ability to spit a paralyzing venom to blind and subdue prey. The Dilo specimens adapted to this trait remarkably well and use it to great effect in hunting. A Dilo’s jaws are rather weak, used for feeding rather than capturing and killing struggling prey, and it primarily relies on its clawed hands, long tail, and venom for attack and defense. Its double crest is used for display, not combat. Dilophosaurus is somewhat rare on the island, mostly limited to the coastline.

Ceratosaurus nasicornis:

Length: 25 ft
Height: 8 ft at the hip
Weight: 1,500 lbs

Characterized by a large nasal horn, spiny osteoderms down its back, and a long, flexible body with a crocodilian tail, Ceratosaurus is an unusual-looking, but otherwise standard, theropod. The horn is used for display and the occasional headbutting contest with rivals, and the long, flattened tail allows it to swim and catch aquatic prey to some degree. However, Ceratosaurus prefers scavenging and small dinosaurs, to avoid competition with the larger theropods on the island. Its teeth are particularly large for its size, and it has a very powerful bite. Ceratosaurus occasionally form small groups, but they do not possess the pack mentality of the maniraptorans.

Allosaurus fragilis:

Length: 35 ft
Height: 12 ft at the hip
Weight: 2,200 lbs

Allosaurus is one of the larger predators on the island, possessing a powerful bite and large, slashing claws on the forelimbs. Its jaw can unhinge like that of a snake, and the teeth are bladelike, giving the theropod the ability to slice through prey, using its upper jaw like a hatchet. Occasionally, Allosaurus will form packs to hunt down much larger prey, like sauropods. However, for the most part, they are solitary.

Carnotaurus sastrei

Length: 30 ft
Height: 10 ft at the hip
Weight: 3 tons

In another Jurassic Park-themed inspiration, the OBS genetically altered their specimens of Carnotaurus, giving their armored skin a chameleonic quality, allowing them to blend in to their surroundings during a hunt. This comes in handy, as the Carnotaurus' upper jaw is robust, but the lower jaw is surprisingly thin and weak. Its arms are tiny as well, little more than wrists and smaller than even those of T. rex. Its main weapons, other than camouflage, are its thick, conical horns and powerful upper jaw, which can used in a hatchet-like fashion similar to Allosaurus. Carnotaurus' armored scales are also exceptionally durable, and the animal itself is surprisingly fast on its feet.

Tyrannosaurus rex:

Length: 40 ft (“Sue” is closer to 45 ft)
Height: 15 ft at the hip (“Sue” is around 20 ft at the hip)
Weight: 6 tons (“Sue” is nearly 7 tons)

Almost the largest carnivore on the island, Tyrannosaurus is also one of the most rare, with only a few individuals actually having been made. The largest, a female nicknamed “Sue” by the OBS staff working on Project Resurrection, is considered the apex predator on the island. T. rex in general is a very territorial and aggressive animal, defending its home with a fierceness unlike any other predator. Its bite force is unbelievably powerful, and is likely to compensate for the puny (but extremely strong) arms. Tyrannosaurus is not a particularly fast runner, however, only able to reach about 15-20 mph. Nonetheless, this is still faster than most of its prey. These massive beasts only have enough room to hunt in the more open areas of the island. Tyrannosaurus, while not particularly smart, appear to have long memories and can hold grudges. They have been known to pursue the same target for several days until they are finally successful in killing it.

Spinosaurus aegyptiacus:

Length: 50-60 ft
Height: 20 ft at the hip (nearly 25 ft at the tallest point on the spine)
Weight: 5-7 tons

The largest predator on the island, Spinosaurus is remarkably agile and quick for such a massive creature, but is less bulky than Tyrannosaurus. It lives in a similar manner to a grizzly bear, with a bias towards fishing, but still opportunistic enough to scavenge and go after small and medium-sized prey. Its long, crocodilian snout is suitable for these roles, and it is able to swim in the wide rivers of the island to hunt for prey. Its powerful arms are its main weapons in a battle, however, as the jaws are not particularly robust. Its sail is used for a variety of purposes, including thermoregulation and intimidation. The OBS has reported as having only created a single Spinosaurus. Whether or not this is actually true remains to be seen.

Compsognathus longipes:

Length: 3 ft
Height: 1 ft at the hip
Weight: 8 lbs

This little theropod is a fast, agile hunter of small vertebrates, such as lizards native to the island, and insects. Its sharp vision and quick reflexes make it well-suited in this role. However, Compsognathus (often referred to as "Compies") are also valuable to the environment in that they are opportunistic scavengers, picking clean any corpses they find after any other nearby predators and scavengers have eaten their fill.

Microraptor zhaoianus:

Length: 3 ft
Height: 1 ft at the hip
Weight: 2 lbs

One of the first theropods created by OBS, the Microraptor is an arboreal hunter of small insects and reptiles. Its feathery coating on its body provides insulation, and the advanced flight feathers on its arms and legs allow it to glide and even fly short distances. Mostly harmless to humans, but can deliver a nasty bite or scratch.

Deinosuchus rugosus:

Length: 40 ft
Weight: 8 tons

Only one specimen of Deinosuchus was created by OBS, as a test to see if it would be comfortable in salt water or not (and therefore be capable of escaping the island and causing potential havoc). As it turns out, it does not like saltwater environments, and was therefore released onto the island, where it lives in the rivers. More were planned to be resurrected, but communications ended before this could happen. Essentially a massive alligator, Deinosuchus prefers to lie in wait on the edge of a river and wait for prey to approach, before lunging up to grab it in its powerful jaws and drag it into the water to drown it.

Troodon formosus:

Length: 8 ft
Height: 3 ft at the hip
Weight: 110 lbs

Troodon is a particularly unusual and dangerous predator that was secretly resurrected by the project's on-site lead, Dr. Andrew Jenkins, without informing Lewis Dodgson. Though they were not genetically altered in any way, they are still some of the most unique theropods on the island. Unlike, the similar-looking Velociraptor, Troodon does not have a feathery covering, instead protected by pitch black scales. This allows them to hide in the darkness with ease, with only their eyes giving them away, which glow yellow in the dark. However, these dinosaurs have another weapon besides camouflage: their unique teeth provide a delivery system for an unusual venom that is both hallucinogenic and paralytic. While not lethal to humans, a single bite can leave a fully-grown man helpless for several hours, and Troodon rarely wait for their prey to die from blood loss before eating. However, this venom seems to possesses an even more horrific effect: one bite to a smaller animal (it takes two or more for this effect to appear in most healthy humans) will, after only 24 hours, send the victim into a catatonic, paralyzed state, not quite alive, not quite dead. Helpless and frozen, these poor souls are used as nests: the Troodon lay their eggs in the animals (usually in their ragged wounds) and bury them in decaying plant matter to provide a proper incubation temperature. The newly-hatched offspring will then have plenty of fresh meat to subsist on when they emerge from their eggs. These grisly nests are concentrated in the center of the island, near the densest areas of forest and a geothermal power plant used to maintain power to the rest of the island's facilities.

Herbivores:

Parasaurolophus walkeri:

Length: 30 ft
Height: 10 ft at the hip
Weight: 3 tons

The most common of the three hardosaurids on the island, Parasaourolophus is a peaceful grazer that wanders in herds. Its long, curved head crest is partially hollow and connects to the nostrils, allowing the herbivore to produce a trumpeting call. This call can vary in pitch, and has several functions, such as a mating call and several warning calls for different predators. Parasaurolophus is most comfortable on all fours, but can run on two legs if necessary (its only other defense is its thick scales).

Lambeosaurus laticaudus:

Length: 50 ft
Height: 18 ft at the hip
Weight: 10 tons

The largest hardosaurid, and the most rare on the island, Lambeosaurus is a relatively typical herbivore, other than its large size, which is its primary defense against predators. Its hatchet-shaped crest is capable of producing calls like those of Parasaurolophus, but much deeper in pitch.

Edmontosaurus regalis:

Length: 40 ft
Height: 10 ft at the hip
Weight: 5 tons

Another typical hardosaurid, Edmontosaurus lacks any sort of head crest, and relies primarily on eyesight to detect predators. Unfortunately, Edmontosaurus is also relatively slow, even having trouble outpacing Tyrannosaurus (which hunts Edmontosaurus regularly).

Apatosaurus louisae:

Length: 72 ft
Height: 15 ft at the hip
Weight: 22 tons

One of the largest dinosaurs on the island, Apatosaurus is a massive sauropod with few predators. For the most part, it is a gentle giant, content to feed all through the day to fuel its enormous body. The whiplike end of its tail is an effective weapon and can produce a cracking sound of over 200 decibels.

Brachiosaurus altithorax:

Length: 85 ft
Height: 60 ft to the top of the head
Weight: 35 tons

An impressively massive creature, Brachiosaurus has no predators on the island other than natural disasters. They are often seen traveling in small herds across the plains, devouring the plant life around them. Fortunately for the island's ecology, there are only a few Brachiosaurus on the island.

Amargasaurus cazaui:

Length: 33 ft
Height: 10 ft at the hip
Weight: 5 tons

Amargasaurus is the smallest of the three sauropods on the island, but is by no means defenseless. The bizarre double rows of spikes along the back of its neck makes it an extremely difficult target for even the largest of predators. Like Apatosaurus, it is mostly a simple grazer, wandering in large herds.

Triceratops horridus:

Length: 30 ft
Height: 8 ft at the hip
Weight: 12 tons

This heavyweight, aggressive herbivore is by far one of the most rare, with only a couple small herds known to exist on the island. With a thick, bony frill and a trio of long, sharp horns, no predator dares to attack Triceratops from the front. With a similar temperament to rhinos, Triceratops will not hesitate to charge at any nearby creature, whether or not it is a legitimate threat.

Stegosaurus armatus:

Length: 30 ft
Height: 14 ft at the tip of the tallest plate
Weight: 5 tons

Another armored dinosaur, Stegosaurus is relatively rare on the island, similar to Triceratops. It is equally dangerous as well, and is particularly unintelligent, even for an herbivore. In addition to the fantastic thermoregulating plates on its back, Stegosaurus possesses armor around its throat and four tall spikes on the end of its tail as a defense against predators.

Ankylosaurus magniventris:

Length: 30 ft
Height: 5 ft at the hip
Weight: 6 tons

Nearly completely covered in armor plating, Ankylosaurus is a walking tank, and possesses a bony knob at the end of its tail that functions like a gigantic club. A single swing can break the legs of a Tyrannosaurus. Needless to say, Ankylosaurus are rarely perturbed by the predators of the island, though Utahraptor is known to lure Ankylosaurus into lethal traps that usually involve flipping it over to expose its soft underbelly, or even forcing it to fall to its death off cliffs or into rivers.

Hypsilophodon foxii:

Length: 6 ft
Height: 3 ft at the hip
Weight: 120 lbs

The most common herbivore on the island, Hypsilophodon is a speedy and skittish creature. Unsurprising, as it is the main food staple for many of the island’s theropods. Its only defenses are the ability to hide in forested areas (thanks to its green and brown patterning) and its sheer speed.

Pachycephalosaurus wyomingensis:

Length: 16 ft
Height: 5 ft at the hip
Weight: 2 tons

Pachycephalosaurus’s skull, which is capped with a dome of bone 10 inches thick, makes an effective weapon against smaller predators, capable of brutally smacking away maniraptorans and even larger predators like Dilophosaurus. However, this is a temporary defense at best, and Pachycephalosaurus is more likely to run than fight, unless its young are threatened. This bony head is also used to push against rival members of a herd to establish dominance (it is not used in a charging headbutt against another Pachycephalosaurus, as the round dome can slip to the side or miss completely). Younger Pachycephalosaurus have differently-shaped domes, starting out flat, with more ornate spikes, and rapidly growing in size while the spikes shrink into small, spiky knobs.

Thescelosaurus neglectus:

Length: 8 ft
Height: 5 ft at the hip
Weight: 450 lbs

Thescelosaurus is a fairly basic ornithopod dinosaur, and is relatively common in the forested areas of the island, feeding primarily on ferns and conifers. Like Hypsilophodon, its primary defense is speed.

The USS Boxer, a Wasp-class amphibious assault ship of the U.S. Navy, was drifting across the serene, calm waters of the Pacific Ocean. Currently on the flight deck, Lieutenant James Barnes carefully observed the mercenaries that had been hired for this operation, near a single V-22 Osprey. He crossed his arms, glancing down at the suited, far thinner man seated on the ammo crate beside him, who was leafing through a stack of papers he had just pulled from his briefcase. "I don't know, Dodgson," the Lieutenant said. "Why isn't this just a military op? I mean, mercenaries? Really? Are you sure this is a good idea?" Lewis Dodgson didn't bother looking up at Barnes as he spoke, he eyes fixed on his work. "Lieutenant, we have been over this. We don't want this operation released to the public in any form whatsoever. Mercenaries don't get attention, and a single aircraft carrier in Pacific waters isn't exactly a cause for concern. As far as anyone knows, we're on a routine patrol. We're just dropping in, checking out the situation, and leaving. The OBS will decide what to do after that, depending on the status of the research base on the island." Barnes didn't respond, instead sighing with resignation and looking back over at the mercs...

Riley sat down on a small crate near the rest of the group, cleaning off the barrel of his rifle with a small, white rag, some water on it. On the other hand, he was for the most part paying attention to what his superiors had to say, pausing for a moment to pull a cigarette from his mouth and puff out some smoke. "Eh, we best be getting a good pay for this, if anything," he thought, before putting the item back in his mouth and continued the maintenance of the gun...

Maxwell sat on the floor next to an old dirty barrel. The man pulls out his knife and cleans it with a rag. Surveying the area, Maxwell clears his throat before replying to Riley's comment, "Well, good sir, if my time in this buisness has taught me well, I'd say we're looking at a good amount of cash for this little..... expedition." Maxwell spits. "Let's just hope where we're heading doesn't hold any unfortunate surprises...."

"Just one of your many unexpected experiences in life-just meant to mess you up when you least expect it, eh?" Riley responded with a slightly muffled voice, his focus not moving from maintaining his rifle as he started to finish cleaning the barrel...

Maxwell nods slowly. "If there's one other thing I've learned form my time in this buisness, you must always be alert. After all, you never know who.... or what.... might be following you." He clears his throat again before gonig back to shining his knife.......

Riley nodded in agreement, lowing his weapon down onto the surface of the carrier, before pulling out a brown wallet and opening it, a folded picture seeming to fall out seconds later...

Hiero stood away from the others his back turned to them. On a crate was his supply bag, full of survival gear, ammo, and other supplies. On the side was the sheath for his Machete which was out and placed on the crate, it's highly clean and maintained blade reflecting his image back at him. He sorted through his supplies and then organised them to fit comfortably and efficently. He ignored the prattle of the others focusing on his own business, but that diddn't mean he wasn't paying any head to his assignment. What was the job, why did he need to work with others, and why so secerative about the details. He wasn't too concerned, but in his experience when a client is limited with details and in a business suite it tended to mean that something hadn't gone right for that man and it was Hiero's job to go in blind and try to clean up the mess. Hiero had gone through this as well many times but this time was different, he felt his instincts telling him something just wasn't right.

"Mr. Dodgson! A moment alone please?" Dodgson looked up curiously, and saw the Captain of the aircraft carrier, Leroy Matthews, standing a short distance away. He waved Dodgson over, and the man stood up, placing his papers back in his briefcase. "Keep an eye on them, Lieutenant, will you?" Barnes merely nodded, his eyes fixed on the distant mercenaries. He didn't necessarily trust them, but he was hoping that wouldn't be a major concern of his...

As Dodgson approached Captain Matthews, the man led him over closer to the ship's control tower. "Remember, Mr. Dodgson, if anything happens--" "Yes, Captain, I know the rules. If we do not radio in for evac in 12 hours, you contact us. Until then, you maintain radio silence. We don't want unnecessary attention. And then, after 2 days, if you get no response on the situation, you leave and don't return for another six months." Matthews furrowed his brows. "You don't seem to be taking this very seriously, Mr. Dodgson." Dodgson shrugged. "What do you want me to say? I was the project lead on the island for the first year. I know everything there is to know about Resurrection, so please, let me do my job. I highly doubt we'll end up taking an extended trip on the island anyway..."

Jacob sat on a pair of stacked supply boxes, making sure his equipment was set, having spent the previous day doing maintenance on his weapons to make sure they were in perfect condition, and adjusting a few things on his newest weapon, an H&K 416. in addition to the scope that he installed, and the taped twin-clips, he had also adjusted the trigger sensitivity slightly. his handgun only received minor maintenance, being one of the oldest weapons in his inventory and kept in almost mint-condition. the man straightened once he was sure he was ready, awaiting the order to move, pushing his sunglasses up the bridge of his nose and glancing around at his companions, silently weighing the chances of survival for each of them, trying to figure out which one would likely be the first to fall...

Rick sat silently on a bench, thinking to himself while awaiting the order to be given to move. His thoughts were about his past life before he had joined the army. A small smile formed as he thought about the day he had graduated from high school, a day that he couldn't help but find to be the begining of the events in his life that had led him to the job he had now...

Maxwell sheathes his combat knife before checking his S&W. Rolling the revolver part out of its place, the mercenary loads it. Unless something went wrong, there really was no reason for him to do this. But there was no reason not to play it safe, since a knife can only reach so far......

Soon holstering his sidearm, Maxwell checks his combat shotgun. He pulls out a cartridge of ammo before jamming it into place and slinging it back onto his back...

After a few moments, Riley folded the connected pictures up and closed the wallet before putting it up in his pocket. The mercenary grabbed his rifle a moment later and checked if it's trigger was locked as well as pulling out the ammunition clip to see if it was fully loaded like the few others he carried...

Barnes vigil was interrupted when Dodgson approached him again. "So, what was that all about?" he asked. Dodgson shook his head and picked up his briefcase. "Just a little debriefing. Speaking of which, I think it's about time you debriefed the mercenaries, Lieutenant." Barnes nodded. "I'll get right on it, Mr. Dodgson." The two men walked over to where the mercs were concentrated, near the Osprey, and Barnes shouted, "Alright kids, gather round! We've got some things to talk about!"

Maxwell turns to Barnes and repies, "Yes, partner? I would like to know just what exactly we'll be doing on this adventure of ours....."

Rick immedietly snapped out of his thoughts when Barnes spoke and said to his superior:"Good. I've got a few questions that I've kept quiet about for awhile, but now would like answered."

Hiero sheathed his machete, zipped closed his bag, and slung it over his shoulder. He then turned around to face everyone but kept quiet his face a glum frown of bordom.

"All in due time, boys," Barnes replied. "I am Lieutenant James Barnes of the U.S. Army, and this," he waved his hand at Dodgson behind him, "is Lewis Dodgson, from the... FBI. We will be accompanying you on this trip. Now, before I explain anything, I want all of you to know this: I am NOT your babysitter. For all intents and purposes, though, you are under my command. You will follow my orders, or you won't get paid. If I tell you to jump, I expect you to ask how high! If I say run, I expect you to ask how far! If I say sh*t, I expect you to say 'what color, how much, and where should I put it!' Do I make myself clear?!"

Hiero raised an eyebrow at the American's crudness and attempted to respond, but decided not to. He stood straight at attention but now his eyes scanned the room, he was viewing his compatriates determining their value if they had any. The comannder appeared stern and capable but in his face he also seemed... concerned. Then again Hiero rarely understood other people and their emotions, everyone elso who were also apart of the assignment seemed capable but time would tell.
