What is Mobile Suit Gundam :: Valkyrie?Mobile Suit Gundam :: Valkyrie
is an RPG that takes place five years after the conclusion of MSG: Char’s Counterattack. The year is UC 0097, and relations between the Earth Federation and Republic of Zeon are growing steadier for the first time in years despite past hostilities between the two.
Though fractured with the death of Casval Rem Deikun five years ago, remnants of his Neo-Zeon movement still remain with enough manpower and equipment to pose a threat to the shaky peace. In response, the Earth Federation ordered the formation of the Ten Autonomous fleets to deal with those remnants; although granted wide jurisdiction and being given similar tasks, they do not have the same powers as previous autonomous groups such as the Titans or Londo Bell.
While Char’s ghost haunts the Federation, the scientific community has taken a broad interest in the psychic torrent used by Amuro Ray to push away Axis. But by overlooking the role played by the piece of psyco-frame carried by Chan Agi, any attempts to replicate the event haven’t been realized. Now, out of a joint effort between Anaheim Electronics and the Lisardgy Institute (a company based out of Side 3 made up of former lead scientists of Flanagan and Zeonic Company personnel) has come Project Valkyrie, something the Federation believes will herald the next step in the evolution of the Mobile Suit.
The Federation has put so much faith in the work of this project, the EFF has assigned the 6th Autonomous Fleet to Side 3. This act would prove beneficial as the Neo-Zeon Remnant’s Sonnenuntergang Fleet, returning from the shelter of the hidden Mars Zeon, had turned its burning eyes toward Side 3 supplied with inside information from unknown sources these loyal followers of Casval Rem Deikun have placed capturing the work of Project Valkyrie at the centre of a scheme to see the genocidal vision of the man once known as Char realised years after he himself failed to see the cleansing of life on Earth.Who, what?
MSG Valkyrie is an board-based play-by-post RPG set soon after the Mobile Suit Gundam movie, Char’s Counter Attack, shortly after Gundam Unicorn and several years before F90 and F91 – although the shape of things to come is hinted in the presence of the Mars Zeon movement that will not show its public face for several more years in Universal Centaury canon, the RP has the potential to be guided into an alternative timeline if the actions of the players so lead it that way.
The players themselves are the protagonists the Earth Federations 6th Autonomous Fleet, be they Officers, Crewmen or Mobile Suit pilots – or civilian’s and those of other alignments who just have the misfortune of becoming embroiled in the events of the story and end up getting dragged along, for better or worse, with the tidal pull of war.Don’t be afraid to come along and see for yourself at: http://operationbritish.ipbfree.com/
