The plot you guys can hang out and do what you will. I won't worry about anything until I get any potential power back. I dunno how bad Philadelphia will be in that area, but most of the large trees on my street are long gone; but I still can end up with power until it returns.
Also, I have the new stuff linked up to the mod account. I'll add details for the alien stuff to the FAQ a little later.
So seriously, sorry about the mix-up there guys!
Borusa along with some help from the Sixth Doctor have summoned involved parties to Gallifrey, just before the Earth is invaded by an unknown alien force. Borusa the acting President of the High Council, has placed The Master traken_master in charge of finding out who has been assassinating members of the High Council that were responsible for over throwing Rassilon. It is believed that the assassinations took place inside of the Matrix, and The Sixth Doctor has agreed to help with hunting down the one responsible.
Here's the link, I'll be filling the Torcwhood people in, but if there's people you would like to put into any of these slots post in the staff post. There's plenty of open command positions, and second in command spots so there's more room for people to have a leadership role.

I'm hoping to do that next month, once I see what happens with work. :) But do enjoy exploring the planet of the Time Lords. Question of where people will stay, they have set up apartments for the non-Gallifreyans to stay in and will be attempting to replicate human foods.
I don't care if people play on the comm or sws (just make sure to link back, and make it workable for outside the verse folk.)
Okay so before I do the post to bring him in. I need to do the post to introduce him
This is Ianto Jones!
More specifically this is the Ianto married to Tony Stark and Jacklyn Harkness, step father 1 of Meredith. He may or may not have a secret.
One for you all to discover.
The setting for these places would be Martial Law, gangs taking over the streets, but they are the king of king for gathering vital resources to survive.
The other is the smaller cities, Ei: Scranton (humming The Office theme), that have been completely abandoned, and there's going to be hospitals with drugs in them, there maybe food stores that still have warehouses full of food, and other things needed to get around in an area required for people hiding from Big Brother.
Besides making use of the land, we will have the fun of raiding places for things we need. It will be an every man and woman for themselves out here.
The school will be hidden as best as Erik can make it, so any help there would be welcomed as well since Erik believes God will provide for his new venture. *grins*
The Dalek invasion has some parts of the world, or in this case the United States looking far worse than others. The Three Families are able to exploit the lack of power, and they manage to take in political spots. The first thing they do is they do something to shut-up, and get hopefully Jack's Torchwood out of the way. They do the Non-Human Residents Act, and require anyone not from Earth or non-human to register themselves. Of course we'll give them the nice finger, and we look to go on the run. In come the Time Lords to summon us to Gallifrey, and to point out Earth's not to go terminal. We get sent back, the TARDIS/VM will be until we put an end to the Three Families tethered to Earth. We won't have them go cold, and they will serve a purpose to help pull us off the grid.
Afterwards, we end up back on Earth in a small abandoned town in the Pocono section of Pennsylvania called Promised Land Lakes. It's a real location the lake, and that picture give people an idea of what the area looks like. I'll just fill in the town layout for our own use, and just dub it Promised Land. ;)
It's an hour from Philly and NYC, there's also smaller cities in the area; Scranton, Allentown, Reading, Newark, and smaller still for people to poke at. The East Coast was one of the heaviest hit areas from the dalek invasion, New York City took the brunt of it thanks to the earlier attack on the City. The rest of the cities on the east coast have had their population halved. (Think Walking Dead or Revolution to get an idea). There's still populated small towns, cities near anything of tactical value are simply non-existent.
The town layout is small, we'll have the church/orphanage ran by Loki prince_loki, a safe haven school with Erik as the headmaster, and Boss Jack taking care of the town itself. Two farm houses, some cottage homes (nothing special), trailer park, hotel, clinic, garage, general store, pub, the lake, and some stuff outside of the town. I can stick some less than savory things on the outskirts, abandoned mills, and maybe an asylum to give those of our less savory types a place to hang out.
Well besides the Families, there's still the Rift. The spot was selected for this reason, the Time Lords have taken over what's happening with the one in Los Angeles (closed it), but there's still one here that still provides an entry point to this universe and needs to be protected. We still can keep our potential plots workable, ei: the angels become neck snapping types, Exodus Code becomes part of the main story arc, and once the Families are removed from power we'll restore time travel to the Time Lords.
The Families won't be the only thing to worry about, keeping the town stocked with vitals (food, fuel, medicine), other threats human and terrestrial/non-terrestrial, and things that will for the better part challenge our muses. There's going to be some moral issues (shooting a man with kids that's raiding our food, raiding another town that needs things just as badly..etc..things no longer become black and white.)
At the end, we keep the town and it becomes a matter of restoring Earth. We can begin to do time travel, finding alien allies..etc that would lend us technology to speed up the process.
If there's anything in particular you want me to see or tag, maybe link me to it?
They are responsible for what happened with The Miracle, and they almost did succeed in their goals of purging the Earth of the less desirable types. Even with The Blessing buried, and only two major members gone, they are still out there and a threat to mankind.
For more information.
An example: Gallifrey - We end up spending time living in the Capitol while we bring down Rassilon from The Matrix. It provides people a chance who may not want the actiony plot to do exploration along with relationship play.
Oooor, we have something happening in New York City and we open the HUB up for use to be used there instead of Los Angeles. It keeps us fresh, and on the constant go with some room between plots to hang out in the numerous cities before we move on to the next place.
I'm wondering if people would like this, or would prefer a more localized place. Torchwood would still be the same ranks, just on the move. It would make a bit of sense, especially for a world after The Miracle. The Family is still out there from what we saw post MD, so Torchwood not staying still for long might be reasonable. We can dabble with trying to track those guys down even. (We have no idea what's going on as far as any new canon outside of the books/audios for Torchwood.) The Avengers in the comics also moved around abit, Tony traveled, Bruce doesn't sit still. The eventual outcome would be more focus outside of modern day Earth with a major plot to go with it.
I won't leave us without a center area of play on Earth, I can set up something like the Avenger's Tower or Xavier's School for those who don't fit the Torchwood mold, but want to be part of some Earth based action. My only concern is people not playing outside their boxes on both sides and people being left out of stuff.
Comments! Input! Input!
Back on the home front sometime after, The Doctor's brooding loneliness has him begin searching for away to be closer to his friends. He understands that many of them cannot travel with him like the old days due to other commitments, so he takes a job as an administrator with Torchwood.
Nick Fury learns from his SHIELD contacts, that there is a blackmarket dealer in Tijuana that is selling alien weapons to the drug cartels. He has contacted Patrick and Ianto, among any other interested parties inside of Torchwood to help put a stop to this.
