It began when radio telescopes around the world picked up strange radio signals coming from the outer Solar System. Space probes and orbital telescopes picked up large circular shapes passing Saturn.

Three days later, huge alien ships appeared in the skies above Earth. A message greeting the people of Earth is broadcast. The message is broadcast in all languages. One of the ships lands on the roof of the United Nations headquarters in New York City, and the Visitors reveal themselves. They look like us, and they claim to come in peace and as friends. They say they need our help to save their dying planet. In exchange for that help, they will share their advanced knowledge with us. Then they will leave us as they came.....in peace. Or so they say.

The Visitors have deceived us. They are not who or what they seem to be. In reality, they are a sinister reptilian alien race from the Sirius star system that rules a vast interstellar empire. They have come to conquer Earth. Their ruler is "The Leader", whom they regard as a deity.

The Visitors will do everything in their power to keep us from discovering the truth. But small bands of humans from all over the world discover the truth and band together to form resistance groups to fight the Visitors.

The fight won't be easy, but we do have allies in other alien races whose planets are also under Visitor occupation and Visitors opposed to The Leader and his invasion. We will also be developing new technologies and weapons. This is the story of that fight.

This rpg is based on the two "V" miniseries instead of the ABC TV series. Resistance leaders and Mothership commanders will create their own characters for whatever city they choose.

Positions Available:

1. Visitor

2. Resistance Fighter

3. Human Collaborator

4. Viaitor/Human Hybrid

5. Fifth Columnist

The rpg will be based on the two 1980s "V" television series and ignore the TV series and the ABC TV series. If the worldwide setting is too broad let me know and we'll narrow it down to just one location.
