(somewhat cool title) RP Thread Hiya! If you haven't met me yet, I'm Cup. I like roleplaying and avalis. But mostly avalis. If you do know me, you'd know that I've made a lot of roleplays in the past, most of them being thrown together messes that only lasted a couple dozen pages before fading into oblivion. After stalking some of the many roleplays that have been popping up recently, I've decided to make this. A lot of my roleplays relied on players making their own story and finding creative solutions to a problem, which I've had a lot of trouble getting people to do. Despite those failures, I've decided that this roleplay will also rely on player participation. This is kind of an experiment, and I'm curious to see how people can solve their objective. Backstory A powerful group of mercenaries that call themselves the Guardians have been terrorizing the surrounding solar systems for years now. Their sadistic actions have affected you (in some way), and they need to be stopped before any more harm is done to the innocent inhabitants of these worlds. You've met a group of strangers who are ready to fight against them. Character Sheets This helps other players get to know your character. Adjectives are key here. Post this when you are done filling it out. Things to keep in mind- This is the future of the future. You can have some cool gadgets or guns, but don't make them overpowered. Races must be related to the SB universe in some way. PM me about custom modded races not listed before posting. Your backstory must involve the Guardians in some way. Maybe they killed someone close to you. The picture of your character is not required, but can include art or a character sprite from in-game. Starter items are items your character will have at the beginning of the RP. These can be lost throughout the roleplay. Don't join if you have a busy schedule and cannot post at a normal rate. This takes place a fairly long time after the fall of Earth. Try not to make a character directly related to said event. Your character MUST have some sort of combat experience. You're a fighter, not a kindergarten teacher. If you plan on joining late, know that it may take awhile before your character can be included. Physical description includes things like height, feather color, hair color, clothing, etc. Format (items marked with a ^ are optional) Character name: Race: ^ Picture: Physical Description: Backstory: Personality: Traits: Flaws: ^ Starter items: Currently allowed races: Drozolians Avali (of couse) More on Guardians (for backstories) Soldier's armor/clothing is often black and red and can vary. Some may wear masks. Some may wear hoods and assassin like clothing. Some might just wear full-body armor. Settlements are often attacked at night, soldiers carry the same standard issue assault rifle that resembles an HK416. Many civilians are shot on sight, with a select few to be executed in the center of the settlement before the whole thing is burned to the ground. Da Rules Yeah yeah, we all hate them. But you gotta have something to keep people in line, Don't go OOC in the RP thread. Try not to go too off-topic in OOC. We don't want mods invading the thread. Your character is not god. Don't be god. That's not nice. Try not to kill more than one person in a single post. Get permission from someone before killing their character, if you really have to. A GM may do something to push the RP forward. Feel free to dispute anything that happens, but do it in a PM. Keep it PG-13. Normal forum rules still apply. No more than two characters at a time. Don't let anything in OOC influence your character's thoughts or actions. Remember your main objective. Put some detail into your posts. Aim to make each of your posts a full paragraph long. -- Some things to keep in mind- Some NPCs may know something you don't. Ask around! You should get to know other characters. Make your own story. I'm not always going to show you what to do next. At the start of the RP, you will be placed on a ship with the others. You decide what you do next. If you just want to sit on the ship and talk/mess around for the sake of character development for 15 pages, then do it. If you want to go explore a nearby planet, then do it. Characters (character / owner) Nomad ko / zeskorion Surge / Roland Weiss Hawk Novablast / Hawk Novablast Kasuli - MIA Kane Abellion - MIA Lilah Korbinian - MIA Hopefully this works out. If I made any mistakes, please point them out. Took me an entire day to come up with a name, and I'm still not happy that the best I could come up with was the "Guardians".
