  5. It's time for another voting drive! As with previous voting drives we will be sending out voting reminders once a day for the first week of a new voting cycle. This helps to get a good position in the top rankings early on. For people wanting to help out around the site but who can't necessarily contribute in other ways, this is a great way to help out. I can't understate how important voting is. Almost all of our traffic comes from TopRPSites, and when we aren't in the top rankings, we don't draw in new users. So get on in there and vote for Storyteller's Circle!

    You aren't sure who sent it, or how it arrived to you. Perhaps you were on an expedition or adventure of some sort, or off inventing sone grand machine, or maybe you were just enjoying the comfort of your own home for a bit. Whatever the case, you find a letter nearby on your workbench or table. A beautiful white envelope, sender by the name, "P. B. Whitmore." The stamp is interesting, too. Some sort of crest?

    [​IMG]

    But what really matters is the content of the envelope. Inside you find a little pin of the same design as the stamp, and a letter:

    Hey there! You've received this letter due to your love of science, the arts, and most importantly, adventure. I've been looking to revive an old program a friend of mine once belonged to: The Society of Explorers and Adcenturers, or S.E.A. for short. Back in its heyday, this group went on all sorts of expeditions, finding artifacts only thought to be legends. They preserved paintings, scientific gadgets, and discovered all sorts of ruins and other things. And I wanna start it up agai-with you as one of the founding members! You want in? If so, go on and put your pin on, and I want you to look at the picture enclosed in this here letter.

    Sure enough, there is a picture enclosed. Of an old fortress by the sea.

    [​IMG]

    You see that? This is gonna sound crazy, but I want you to imagine you're there. Trust me. Close your eyes, and put yourself there. Do you smell the saltwater? Hear the crashing waves, the seagulls? Feel the Italian sunlight on your face? Once you do...open your eyes.

    You do so, and, as if by magic, you're standing right there, in front of the fortress in the picture. You glance down at the letter, looking for an exploration, but all you find is one line of text:

    Welcome to Fortress Explorations, friend. Come on in.


    ---

    Hello! This is a side-story to establish a new organization into Convergence lore, the Society of Explorers and Adventurers. Once this group is officially established, it can be used by anyone for character memberships, side-stories, missions in a hot spot...just as long as you double-check with me first. I myself will be looking to run a few side-stories with this group, possibly a main event or two down the line...but for now, this will be the starting point.

    The character requirements are that you character must be one or more of the following: an explorer, an adventurer, an artist (such as a sculptor or painter), an inventor, a scientist, or an engineer. There's a lot of room for character choices, so I'm sure this won't be an issue! Plus, I'm going to be lax on it all, so if you just run someone by me, we should be fine.

    This side story will not start until Thursday, May 24th. As I have finals coming up, I won't be able to do much until then. So for now, take plenty of time to choose a character!

    Shockwave has a great scientific mind, achieving great scientific achievements in the fields of chemistry & biology alike. He uses this great mind to create genetically modified Cybertronian beasts of all kinds that he carries with him. His main pets are certain 'genetically altered juvenile Predacons' that he can deploy in a similiar fashion to Minicons in RID2015.

    Other Info:
    Some of his greatest scientific achievements include the creation of the Dinobots by tearing the five members Lightning Strike Coalition Force apart and putting them back together, the genetic modification of Insecticons to be used in combat & war, the cloning and breeding of Predacon fossils, the invention of the Cortical Psychic Patch, the discovery of the hard crystal material which makes up Crystal City and the completion of the lost Synthetic Energon formula(with aid from Ratchet).

    This isn't everything.

    Name: The Doctor (Fifth)

    Age: Unknown. Likely around 700-900 years old.

    Canon: Doctor Who

    Occupation: Adventurer, Explorer.

    Powers/Abilities: The Doctor is a Time Lord, and thus has the ability to regenerate, although this incarnation is on his last one. Aside from that, Time Lords are very long-lived, and are naturally more powerful then humans. Not to mention, The Doctor is a clever person, although he doesn’t seem like it at first. He also, due to his old age, has lots of knowledge, which will be helpful.

    Other Info: None.
