Burokun City plays host to two equally unwelcome groups:

The Oni, who are eternally hungry, and violent. Known to take over entire neighborhoods, demanding tribute at the threat eating the citizens and their children.

And the Ronin. Roving street thugs whose only redeeming quality is that they kill the Oni when possible. Local opinion is far more mixed on the Ronin. On the one hand, they terrorize the streets and demand unconditional respect and fealty. On the other, they're human, and rarely actually kill the citizens.

The entire situation is made worse by the reality TV show, Street Samurai, which follows the Ronin and their fights and lives for views and ad revenue. The show is very popular outside of the city, and particularly in America, but is basically taboo to those who live in Burokun. The producers of Street Samurai act as middle men between the Ronin(who for obvious reasons tend to keep anonymity) and sponsors, who seek to capitalize on the Ronin, who will gladly wear their logos in exchange for a nice sword, or fancy gadget. It's the cheapest advertising available, all things considered, and hits a fairly wide audience.







So aside from this framework for the story, basically anything goes for this game. Bring me your Mary Sues and self inserts. This here is just for everyone to have some fun free of judgements and restrictions.

The only real rule is to be nice to each other, and as explained below, there is a system in place to make sure the outcome of pvp fights is fair.

Name:
Alias:
Appearance:
Alegiances: this can be blank for now, as these will probably appear during the course of the roleplay.
Style: Fast, Strong or Tough. Explained below.
Weapon(s):
Special Abilities:

Because characters will likely clash, I have a simple system to make sure that deciding the winner is fair. There will be a rock-paper-scissors style stat. Fast beats strong, strong beats tough and tough beats fast.

Unless the two players mutually decide who will win in a fight, the two will have a die rolled to represent them, and the higher roll will win. If one of them wins the rock paper scissors stat thing, they will have advantage, in which their die will be rolled twice, and the higher value will be used.

So if a fast fights a strong, the fast will get the advantage. If a fast fights a fast, they will just roll normally.

Once a winner is decided(either by mutual agreement, or with a roll of the dice) you just RP the encounter as you normally would.

Lemme know what people think, and feel free to voice any concerns.

There's a list of gangs and NPC Ronin at the bottom of the opening post, now. Feel free to use them in your own post, with the exception of members of Orob, who may be important for plots.

Also, I have a giant ass pinterest board I made for this, so if you have any trouble coming up with a chracter or just finding a picture, feel free to peruse

EDIT: I messed the board up really bad, I'm trying to fix it, but I guess it's not super important.

Name: marionette Tanin
Alias: dragoni
Appearance: img.roleplayerguild.com/prod/users/cc…
Has another appearance to revealed later when relevant
Alegiances: none
Style: Fast
Weapon(s): whatever she picks up or gets from her dealers
Special Abilities:is rumored to have powers but she has never addressed the rumor, rumors like that are good for business.
Bio: very little is actually known about her. She is rarely seen. She is hard to find unless you know the right people. Has connections to almost all over the entire city. She can get you pretty much anything. Weapons, substances, information. All for the right price. She is dangerous and killing her would be a bad idea as there are many people who would love to get revenge on you.

@GingerBoi123 Do you have a link to the board? I know Gisk want's to tidy it up a bit but I'm really teeming to find a picture to use.

I fixed the link, very sorry about that, and unfortunately I lost a lot of photos. I'm not sure why or how, Pinterest was being weird.

@Gisk Sorry for all the flip-flopping. Bones is my final submission. Question- Can PCs join some of the existing Ronin Groups? 'Cuz with Bones's style, I can imagine him being 'Black' for the Neon Nights.

Feel totally free, and have multiple characters if you want, and think you can handle following all of them.

@Gisk Ah I'm not very good at having multiple characters going xD But it's a free RP so maybe. What do you think of the Neon Night thing?

Oh, that's what I was saying feel free to.

I'm working on an opening post, so we'll be starting pretty soon. I'll probably include them in, if there's gonna be characters from them.

Okay! Post is up.

Feel free to intervene, or to start your own trouble somewhere else. I'll make sure the action keeps on moving either way.

You all also might be interested to see that I've added a section for swords to the pinterest board.

I feel like such an idiot. I was waiting for the IC post counter to go up before checking and I sat here waiting until I remembered there's a 0th post lol.

Mmm, my thinking is that due to how combat works it's beneficial to party up. Would anyone be interested in starting a gang with my character?

Name: Roger Romero
Alias: Destructo
Appearance: I'll find one later.
Style: Tough
Weapon(s): Baseball bat + explosives.
Special Abilities: Is skilled with pyrotechnics. Can create and safely use grenades, molotovs, smoke bombs, etc. By default carries 3-4 baseballs with explosives hidden inside of them, keeps more in his ice cream truck. Seeks to claim the power of the Oni for himself.
