TO INFINITY AND BEYOND (Space Scifi OOC thread)
 
Space Station Oasis (temp name)
Sci-fi Space RP


Quote:

The floating station of Oasis is exactly what the name implies: It's a place for tired space travellers to rest and restock, or to trade their wares. Due to the distance from any of the major planetary settlements in the area, those who work in Oasis are all residents, many of them born to families that have been living there for a while.

The station itself can be likened to a giant hamster wheel, a giant spinning ring, pulling everyone via centrifuge, with the floor facing outwards. There are three sections in the ring, with the residential areas and the farms in the outer ring, the shops in the center ring, and the Inn and mechanic areas in the center ring. In the very center is a spire that keeps the station in place and provides a non moving area for ships to dock. The reduced gravity in the spire allows mechanics to move parts with greater ease.

Residential Population: About 200 strong, with people coming and going - Young adults and teens leaving to see the rest of the universe, Older adults who have lived here for a long time, longing to retire planetside, or new people who are tired of starflight and wish to settle on this floating paradise. Even runaways and stowaways come to call this place home.
Welcome to Oasis! This is pretty much going to be a slice of life type RP where we can all just mess around and make stories with dramadramadrama as much as we want. It won't follow a traditional storyline, but as new space ships come in, they will bring in NPCs that will bring with them Stories, small little episodes that we can do to give our little space people some fun in their lives. Maybe one day we'll have zombies. Maybe one day we'll get infested with CATS. EVERYWHERE. Hell maybe one day we'll have to throw a giant freaking birthday party. With us not being set in one genre, we can do nearly anything.

For the purpose of simplicity, we're all humans. Different planets have different countries with their unique cultures. If you want to make something unique like some weird food or music, have at it. I'm curious to see how crazy this can get.

----------------------

Note on how to choose jobs:

All Jobs other than Mechanic, Maintenance and Park Caretaker have limited slots. There's plenty of variety but it's first come first serve.

Occupations:
Maintenance crew - There's a lot of work to be done on a space station. From life support to dock work to simple fixing of lighting.
Librarian - Someone has to maintain the library.
Gardener - The ones that maintain the greenhouse.
Park Caretaker - self explanatory.
Waiter/waitress - Working in the bar/cafe/restaurant (specify which restaurant you want to work for, see below).
Bartender - Professional drink slingers employed by Blue.
Shop helper - people who help with stocking and trading at the general shop.
Mechanic - The bulk of jobs are centered around aiding travellers and fixing up their ships.
Beautician - The workers of Magnetic rose live to make you fabulous!
Inn Keeper - Working to make the inn clean and comfortable for travellers.
Nurse - Helping keep people alive! (must be older than 20)
Doctor - I'm going to stop before I make a Dr. Who joke here. (Must be at least 25 (one slot only!))
Law Enforcement - Keeping the peace!

Societal Rules:
Due to the mix of cultures and the higher quality of the level of education, the age of adulthood is now 16. On board Oasis, it is mandatory to have a job after you reach 15. The age allowed for leaving the colony in other pursuits is 16. The legal age for marriage is on oasis is 17, but the legal age for child bearing is 18, and only with permission, as there is limited space and resources. People of any age may come to live in Oasis, though children require a family to look after them.

Families and adults are given a ration of groceries, but are also given a wage for trading with offworld visitors, though much of the trade in oasis is dependant on bartering, as there are not many exports, so currency within the station is limited.

Medical jobs require studying and testing, all of which can be done from Oasis, the youngest one can be and get their liscence is 20 (assistan/nurse) and 25 for a doctor.

Oasis amenities:

Library: A collection of books -- some rare -- from all over the cosmos. Quiet with comfortable chairs.
General shop: The main trading station.
Cafe - "Stardust" : A small eatery for residents and visitors, fucntions as a socialization area. Serves snacks as well as full meals. Known to have excellent coffee.
Bar - "Blue Amnesia" : A bar. Kinda self explanatory.
Restaurant - "Aroura": When you want more substantial food than the cafe has to offer.
Park: A small park with a flower garden. Though seemingly superfluous, it's considered to be one of the more important common areas in Oasis.
Post office: Located in the General Store. Even though technology lets us instantaneously send each other letters and videos, someone has to deliver parcels.
Inn: Because not everyone wants to sleep in their spaceships. Some people want nice comfy beds, even if the rooms are a little small.
Tinkerer's shop: Need something fixed, or want something awesome made?
Ship Dock: Travellers need somewhere to park and board.
Medical Bay: Where people go if they get hurt.
Salon "Magnetic Rose" : Someone has to make sure everyone is groomed and looks good.

Resident only areas:
Living quarters: Small and slightly cramped, usually inhabited by families, though young adults will also often share rooms, same with elderly/adults without children/grandchildren, due to limited space.
Gardens: There's three different gardens, the public park, and the two private ones specially for the residents. The residential gardens are in the living quarters, dividing them into two sections.
Farms: A small greenhouse room where most of the food and oxygen is grown. There are four of them within the residential area.
Gym: If you don't work out, it messes with your bones D: D: D:

The proprietor, Shayne, is good at what she does, and in addition to serving the typical espresso and cappucinos, she also makes some more exotic choices, like turkish coffee, or even specials from neighboring planets. Stardust offers a wide selection of non-alcoholic drinks and treats, from ice cream to tortes, milkshakes to iced tea, all of which carefully prepared and made with love.

Library

Books are often brought in by travellers and traders alike, and Melanie, the head librarian, often barters her own belongings or rations for new books for the ship's collection. It's cramped, with lots of tall shelves, but it has a nice, comfy little reading area. Residents are allowed to check out books to read in their quarters. Despite the computer being very good and accurate at keeping track of all the books and their locations, Melanie makes it a point to know where everything is, which can get very difficult at times.

NPC List:


Spoiler!



Note regarding NPCs:

I'm allowing control of NPCs within reason. Stick to their personality, and if you want your character to fall madly in love with an NPC...well, too bad, someone else will have to RP him for ya (but it's still allowed, just make sure it makes sense).

For the NPCs that don't have descriptions, feel free to make up some personalities and physical descriptions. I'll most likely approve them, as long as it's not something outrageous. Don't make NPCs that are another PC's parents/siblings/lover without their permission.

You're free to make new NPCs, just make sure to follow the template.

Stars provide solar energy.
