@Lucky Your backstory is yours to determine. Obviously, the Prototype will be a complete rookie, since the newly-fielded Queen Unit is their Dragon, and the Veteran is self-explanatory, but it’s free game for anyone else- be a rookie, an ace, whatever.

Possible interest! As an Evangelion fan, I might join this.

In fact, I even made a drawing of my own custom Dragon-gellion just for this RP down below =:

@Lmpkio Hey, that’s pretty good! Yeah, that’s generally the aesthetic you should be going for- giant bio-metal cyborg stuff. Very Eva.

Hey! @EnterTheHero

Posting some interest cause...it's an interesting concept?
Full Disclaimer: I've never tried a sci-fi mecha RP , but this seems unique enough that I might be able to add something to the narrative.

Few Questions:

Are the dragons our characters bonded with defeated enemies of the humanity? ( I would assume this is why there is an artificial intelligence override system necessary to bond pilots with the mechs)

Can you tell me more about the Shard? Like... Does my character know of them/hate them by default? What are the motives of the Shard?

Is this a story with a clear beginning, middle and end? Or is there no specific plot involved?

Thank you so much! Great idea :)

EDIT: you answered one in the OP derp~

@Inkjar Welcome to the RP! Don’t worry about not having played much of this ilk before, we’re here to help. Now, to answer your questions:

Dragons are cloned from salvaged Shard bio-material. The AION is an artificial intelligence each Dragon has, to give them activity and autonomy, since plugging them into the Shard hive-mind is all sorts of bad. You’d basically just be cloning more enemies, whereas with the AION, you now have your own personal robo-kaiju.

Anyone from the Red Line to the Origin knows who the Shard are in theory. The accuracy of what you know, however, is greater depending on how close to the frontier you are. Most information in Origin is heavily filtered through propaganda, to keep recruiting up. If you’re on the Red Line, you don’t need propoganda to motivate you- you’ve seen them burn enough worlds to know they must be stopped.

No one really knows why the Shard do what they do, only that they are bad news. From the foot soldier “Locusts,” to the living supercarrier “Leviathans,” to the “Patriarchs” that the Dragons are based off of (and built to counter), the Red Line has their hands full, keeping the boundary where it is until they can start pushing back.

This is indeed a story with a beginning, middle, and end. It’s gonna be a wild ride.

Hope that answers everything!

@EnterTheHero Yeah perfect!

I like all of the things you have hinted at so far, so I'll keep an eye out. I'm brainstorming a character-probably a bit of an archetype in the genre, but alas, my anime/mecha knowledge is pretty limited. I want to play a cocky sort of over-achiever with a chip on her shoulder and a condescending attitude. Why she is motivated to behave that way? Who knows yet. She wants glory tho...and probably at a high cost. Thanks for the reply!

@Inkjar No problem, happy to help, and happy for your interest. And yeah, a cocky go-getter would be fine as a character. It just makes it all the more fun when they break later on~

I'm gonna play a battle maniac

With probably an Egyptian themed solar dragon-bird thing.

She'll be great.

@Cultural Titan The smallest Dragons are roughly 20 meters tall, with the average height being around 40-50, and the largest being around 90 meters tall.

Are we looking at internal weapons like breath attacks or will we carry weapons into battle like an eva?

I'm under the impression of varying abilities and equipment.

@Cultural Titan@Lucky Dragons have their weapons built in, but there’s some variation in abilities and capabilities. There’s a few handy classifications for Dragon archetypes:

Rooks are close-combat specialists. They either have powerful short-range weapons, increased durability compared to other Dragons, more powerful shields, and so on.

Bishops are best at range- laser or particle beam batteries, a powerful breath weapon, enhanced vision and targeting, things like that.

Knights are tricksters, assassins. Camouflage, stealth drives, increased speed, anything that helps them be a better scout/assassin.

Then, breaking the chess metaphors, there’s Jokers. These are the “wild cards,” the ones whose abilities can’t be easily categorized into the other three archetypes. A well-known example is the Dragon codenamed “Sakura Blossom,” whose presence greatly increases Metalflesh regeneration in its vicinity, thus acting as a sort of “healer” Dragon.

Sounds good. Hopefully the last questions. How fast are they? I'm sure there's quite a bit of variance in miles or kilometers per hour, but I also mean to ask about input delay. Are these sluggish machines that we need to predict ahead of time how they will need to move or do they act as quickly as we can?

Adding onto his question, are pilots located directly inside the dragons and is it primarily in the head or torso?
