    Without further ado, here it begins.

    Darkness.


    Your body aches. You can barely move. Even if your body could, you sense your arms and legs are restrained. Slowly, you open your eyes.

    [​IMG]

    It's dark. You don't know where you are. Memories are hazy.
    Do you remember?

    Who are you?


    Create the character!

    To start, pick RACE
    Human, Apex, Avian or Hylotl

    Multiple people can suggest, most suggested is chosen.

    Oh, this looks like fun! I'm going to say Apex because they aren't widely used.

    That's a good idea! I think I'll say the same.

    Since the majority seems to be in favour of the Apex, I'll add my vote for the primates—even though I would have enjoyed the option to pick Novakid.

    Woo, Apex! I'm so close saying that's it and moving on to the next part...

    I like the 'kids too, but where this story is going must have a fleshy main character. So sadly Novas, Glitches and Florans are out.

    I'm gonna go ahead and be the token weirdo here and say... does it matter? Especially with an Apex, where male and female aren't so clearly differentiated. Could not the player be gender neutral?

    Unless your plan for the story requires a sex, I'm with Alkanthe.

    If the other two are right in saying so, I guess we shouldn't be so quick to assuming the Apex's gender, what if they identify as a can of tomato soup, and have no respect for the binary constructs that we, humans, call "gender". /s

    I'm just gonna say female and hope not to be kicked off the forums.

    I did specifically call for sex, not gender. Gender identity of the protagonist, whichever it might be, should be irrelevant in this story.
    The function of the protagonist's sex is mostly visual, so I could go for a degree of ambiguity... But there are the other reasons: character's name, other characters' reactions, and other races' cultures and clothing. It's likely the story runs into those in the first few parts.

    unless you get the poor ape murdered in less than thirty seconds, but that's not ideal


    Hm, I think I've got it.

    It'll take all suggestions into account. Ambiguity ahoy!


    RACE: Apex
    SEX: ???

    To continue, pick FIRST NAME


     
  16. The Purple Dragon

    The Purple Dragon Master Astronaut

    Tane, a nice ambiguous name.

    How about Giunhiedhaou8junhfiwenlwhi?

    :D


    (But seriously, I actually don't really know what a good first name would be. Perhaps something symbolic, but it also has to be gender-neutral since it seems like we're going for a main protagonist with an undefined gender)

    Also, this sounds like a great idea for a comic! A story defined by the readers' actions? Seems like something very interesting!

    A good first name would be Gielgud.

    How rude, there wasn't even a majority. Oh well, last name can be something ambiguous. What about Taneston, McTaneface, or something like Taneson? Pardon for such originality.
