Description

USCM RPG is a roleplaying game played over the internet using a Bullentin Board System/Forum. The setting is the second Alien movie form 21st Century Fox and the players incarnates Colonial Marines of the fictional 03batt, 2nd Regt "Easy eight" platoon.

The game is played in "turns" where the GM posts a setting which the players then reply to. The GM checks if any skills have been used and rolls the necessery rolls and then writing them out for the players.

Turn pace of the game is roughly one to two turns per week. The players normally have two to four days to reply to the turn and to each others posts before the story moves on. There is plenty of room for character development and interaction. After each mission/adventure the characters recieves experience points based on his or her performance during the mission.

The game uses a system that is detailed yet simple enough to understand even if you have no or limited roleplaying game experience. The system is custom written specifically for this game and with simplicity and ease of use in mind.
