Please move your lovely stuff to the Character tab kthx.





Partnerships are separated, leaders are highlighted. Teams were chosen by opposite character traits overall in an attempt to make things as interesting as possible. Any questions or concerns are not only accepted by appreciated- this kind of got cobbled together with me and an index card, so it's not necessarily the best, but I think these teams and pairings best promote that good ol' RP drama/growth thing we all love.

I had a gut feeling Sol and Russel would end up on a team but I did not expect Russel to be the leader. Russel trying to give Sol orders...those scenes are gonna be a treat to write xD

Cassius and Indigo as partners with Cassius as the leader, didn't see that coming but it definitely adds something interesting to this. It's funny, Cas and I were talking a bit in DMs about their interactions, and if that brief little talk is anything to go off of this is gonna be a wild and fun trip.

It's going to be that much worse because he is the leader who is literally. "Keep yo Drama for yo mama."

As well as if a Character like Cardin Winchester touched him -- not sure if he is in this setting, but you should expect for him rip a new one if touched in any manner akin to how Velvet was touched.

He would quite literally grab him by the balls in retaliation to being grabbed by the ears and tail

"Cardin, Winchester... if you fucking touch my ears again... or any fucking part of my body... I will kill your balls and your dick with my semblance. And because you have such a firm warning... Do not try to down play as a lack of fairplay... now you fucking waste of sperm... get me a rag and clean my hand... you repugnant fuck."

Edit: Ya know, I should probably include the fact Cas is very Stand off ish.
I'm going to edit that in the Personality. It also just makes sense with what is established.

Edit 2: And done.

Oh god, you have just set Team RSTC on the worst possible course. You have literally picked someone who is going to climb into a high cupboard and peer out of the cupboard door.

All in all, I'm not sure how I feel about Russell being a leader. He's not really the leadership type, it doesn't really fit with his character, and wasn't really the direction I wanted to bring him. He's more the type to get lost and then realise he's lost, get worried, and run around in fear, getting even more lost.

The GM did state he picked who he felt was the least qualified for the sake of chemistry and growth.

If we are being Technical, even in current RWBY, I do not buy Ruby as a leader and feel Weiss is more qualified.

I would say just take it. I think it works fine because it means Russel cannot be selfish with self preservation in mind as a leader.

I wouldn't worry too much, think of it like Jaune. He's definitely not the most qualified leader, especially when he first arrived to Beacon. You could use Russell being the leader as a way to gradually grow him. Sure, at the start he may be entirely lost, but maybe he could develop into the role with time?

Eh, I do see both of your points. But the problem is that he is built to break down, and to lean on people rather than have them lean on him. Sure enough, he can grow into the role, but one of the issues I'm having is that he's a character made to be simply one thing, and that's a flaw in the team, someone the team has to look after and encourage him to go on. As a leader, I feel he'd be completely incapable of this and break down from the stress.

I guess it's also the fact I haven't gotten to really play him yet. If it was within IC, and during a ceremony it was announced he was the leader of the team, I'd roll with it, because I'd have a real feel for him and a real connection with him. Jaune was chosen to be a leader because he was a leader, and showed leadership traits. Ruby was picked for her silver eyes, and because she burned with a courage to be a huntsman. Russell? He just doesn't fit, in my eyes.

Well, have to see how he does with Cyan then. I see her as the sort that actively attempts to support and bring out the best in those around her, she is ultimately a very supportive individual. A born Lieutenant rather than a born leader. She's too single-minded to big picture well enough to lead, she likes to get in and up close with her ideas and passions ( ironic for a largely ranged fighter huh? ) I am now quite curious what Russell will manage with a supportive individual like Cyan around.

though I suppose only time will tell.

It's not just if he will do well as the leader and such, it's just that I'm not sure I'll like playing him as the leader. Again, it's not my intended direction for him.

I feel terrible now. Like I'm a drama queen or something.

No, your concern is warranted. You wrote your char to fill a particular niche and playing a role so drastically outside of that niche would more than likely require writing that is out of character. I'm sure our GM wouldn't mind changing the leader if it will really hinder your enjoyment otherwise.

As of yesterday, the project was axed. 3 people seemed to refuse to post, and a few of us got quite frustrated, so the GM declared the project over.
