[/FONT]“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.”
-H. Jackson Brown Jr.
The time for adventure is upon us. With new tools, and new things to discover, the universe is more alive than it ever has been before. Out there, among the stars, lie planets waiting to give up their secrets to any explorer willing to make the journey and make that journey we will.
As a member of the Geology and Organics Department you will be tasked with uncovering these places of beauty and mystery and sharing them with the rest of the galaxy. You will spend your time locating planets with high geological and organic potential and then make your way to any candidate for further mapping and study. To do this there are various roles, as follows:
Scout: The scouts job may be simple but it is very important. You will be tasked with going ahead of the Mappers, Specialist and RPers and finding those juicy planets with good geological and organic potential. Using the appropriate sheets you will submit locations with high Geologic POI's and Organic POI's to help facilitate the various teams in quickly deciding what sites require further study.
Mappers: Using the data provided by the scouts, you will be landing at these sites and capturing images and data (IE: Lat & Long; Type of Planet; Type of Organic or Geologic Type; Images & Video)
Organic Specialist: You are all about life and it's many possibilities. You will use the data gathered by the scouts to find planets with awesome organic potential. You will then map these sites and gather data similar to the mappers but pertaining only to Organic sites.
Geology Specialist: You're best friend is a rock, simple as that and you are always out to find more. As a specialist in Geology you will use the data provided by the scouts to choose sits of high geological activity. Using the same criteria for the mappers you will then collect data and map these sites.
Jacks of All Trades: Well aren't yo special... You like to do it all. From scanning and hunting down POI's, to mapping and data gathering. So, go at it. Do as you please and enjoy the journey!
Light RPers: You like to get a little bit more personal. Here you can meet up with other RPers and as you travel the galaxy finding various organic and geological sites you can theorize on how they may have come about. Use data you gather to form reports that back up your theory and share them with the community. Live the life!
Feel free to come along just for the ride as well. You are not required to take on any of these roles and are free to just join the Geology and Organics department as a traveler, looking for discoveries and enjoying an adventure of a life time.
Also, to go along with this thread there will be a companion website. This website will be a more interactive way of experiencing the Geology and Organics Department. It will house video and screenshots, site showcases, event details and times, ETC.
Thank you for being a part of DW2: A Journey of Discovery and thank you for choosing to sign up for the Geology and Organics Department. Our goal is to make sure this journey is as stress free and fun filled as possible. You can also take pride in knowing that your discoveries will be shared with the community for all to enjoy and you just might uncover things never before seen.
