I think I have an idea for a human character now. Is it acceptable to have a cultist type who worships the kaiju as gods?

Still working on my CS. I'll probably have it up sometime tomorrow evening unless I manage to fight through exhaustion and finish it tonight.

<Snipped quote by Lmpkio>

I was thinking she might be 😅 I kinda have a bit of a tendency to make underpowered characters (I know - weird problem lol). Do you think if I just gave her more powerful, more long-range abilities I could keep her confined to Loch Ness? I quite like the idea of her being stuck there just chillin' till the humans come and are like 'WAIT! I RECKON NESSIE'S REAL!'


Depends on what abilities you want Nessie to have. Show me what you have in mind and we'll go from there.

@Lmpkio Okies - got some ability ideas that might power Nessy up a bit

- Sensory projection - can project sensations onto both humans and Kaiju, regardless of where they are in the world, so long as she knows what they look like. Although only one individual at a time. (so like, she could make someone think they're drowning, or on fire, or nice things too :) )

- Memory projection - Can make an individual, human or Kaiju, experience a memory or imagined scene, wherever they are in the world.

- Remote viewing - can spy on both humans and kaiju, wherever they are in the world

Any good?


- Sensory projection is an interesting trait. The way you describe it sounds about balanced compared to Nessie's current abilities.

- Memory projection reminds me of a fan audio-drama - revolving around an ancient "hologram" that could unleash surreal simulations of certain past events. However your version is probably better in Nessie's case. If you're interested in what the audio drama is, click the link below:



@Whirligig

An anti-hero huh? Nice! Most of the human characters I'd want would revolve around the good guys as involved with TERRA - or be that they start out neutral and then get on TERRA's radar.

There will also be some bad people too. However, I'd like if you refrain from making those characters for the moment.

I think I have an idea for a human character now. Is it acceptable to have a cultist type who worships the kaiju as gods?


This also goes for you - if said cultist is going to be antagonistic.

@MsMorningstar

Looks cool! It's very traditionally based on what's described in myths and texts, but such monsters don't need to be exactly as they are told. Again, creative liberties can be taken if you want. Like, for example, the ancient people may mistake the tail for being a snake, but rather it's say a scorpion tail or something cool. Or combine the traits into one animal but with only one head and body that invokes all three traits of the lion, goat, and serpent.

Again, this is my idea if I wanted to go about utilizing the Chimera, but if you feel like really wanting the pic you're showing, then go for it! Just throwing it out there, you don't need to follow what I said - it's only an idea for a more "naturalistic" approach. :)

@Lmpkio
Would these sizes for my creature, who's concept I've changed, be appropriate? Or are they too much?

{700 feet long, 350 feet tall/wide, with a wingspan of 1,050 feet.}


So basically:

213 Meters long | 106 Meters tall | 320 Meter Wingspan

Yeah that's perfectly fine!

Oh wow! Thank you so much! I do really like the picture and the concept of having multiple heads on my creature, but this "naturalistic" approach sounds very intriguing. I'll have to think long and hard about it. Again, thank you! You'll know my decision soon enough.

@ZAVAZggg The Egyptian God of Chaos. Horus is not gonna like him lol

Also you're the first to actually claim an outpost for a non-gm monster. And for someone of his caliber, it's best that he's in there.

He's surprisingly balanced for someone of such toxic nature - although now that I see him in nature, I do believe his height ought to be a bit smaller. He can easily swallow a large kaiju whole if he's actually that big.

I say to make his height smaller. You can keep the length and wingspan, but maybe him maybe... say 50 - 60 Meters tall. Still big width wise but not too big. Hell, if he's gonna go the extra snake similarities, he could even split his jaw to swallow larger pray. It'll definitely take effort, but again, not to the point where he could swallow creatures in one pass. Again, he makes up with his length - think of the chinese dragon kaiju Manda from the Godzilla series.

Other then that, make his history and I think he'll be ready to go.

@NorthernKraken Well I suppose she's good to go then.

I do highly suggest making a human character or another kaiju to be more involved with the storyline, but that's for you to decide.

Made some minor changes to Apophis's CS. Mainly changed some sentence structure, corrected spelling errors, added themes, and a sound effect.

@Lmpkio Quick question - but for one of my human characters, I was thinking of having her be sort of involved with tracking down 'individuals of interest' for TERRA and acting as a liaison for TERRA with said individuals - would that be okay?

@Lmpkio Awesome =D Another question (Sorry!) But do TERRA have a sort of 'home base'? I might just be being unobservant, but I didn't see any mention of it in your original post, just that they're international and have lots of outposts

Edit - This is my first hooman, I kinda left her location as just vaguely US based further to my above inquiry

Just dropping my interest for now -- This looks really cool.

Already thinking up both a potential human and monster PC.

"This wasn't just evolution... It wasn't just survival, it was a war of the gods. The gods of nature. The gods of the primal earth."
~ — Walter Riccio (Skull Island: The Birth of Kong)





June 17th, 2021.

<\\:TERRA_ALERT_:_OUTPOST_*BLANK*_ HAS_BEEN_BREACHED://>

<\\:CODENAME_*MONSTER_NAME*_CAN_NO_LONGER_BE_CONTAINED://>


After thousands of millions of years of dormancy, titanic beings once forgotten rose from the deepest darkest depths of the planet's surface in response to an unknown frequency that rocked the world by storm. The anti-monster initiative "TERRA" had long since been preparing for when this day would inevitably come. They did everything they could - documenting them, imprisoning them, studying them, even proposing projects to halt their rampage with the minimalist of casualties. They did all the calculations necessary to prepare, but they assumed this to take place far into the future...

And now they're here.

Humanity stands amidst the gaping jaws of primordial gods - creatures who had lived far longer than we had. They want their Earth back - their rightful place upon the infested world of man.

The war for Earth had just begun.







We start this RP upon that fateful day - the very second the monsters decided to break free and reveal themselves to the eyes of the public.

The player's human characters would be situated in various different locations and would find their lives turned upside down as they find themselves in the crosshairs of a monstrous invasion. They do all they could to survive before TERRA arrive at the affected areas, gathering their agents and assessing the situation. Any involved or have information about the invaders would be taken in by TERRA and asked for questioning, while they attempt to decode and pinpoint the direction of the frequency. In the meantime, humanity is now arming itself for war and TERRA is tasked to track down and take these behemoths down, dead or alive.

TERRA'S Primary Objectives:
  • 1). Document the escaped monsters and newly risen threats.
  • 2). Decode the mysterious frequency and discover its origins.
  • 3). Prepare countermeasures and contingency protocols.


The player's monster characters would find themselves in a world that had long since lived without their presence. Their world has changed, whether for the better or worse. Whether they are furious at the world tainted by those pesky humans, or otherwise simply confused or curious, their search for answers would lead them into conflict with both TERRA, the military, and even each other.

Monsters' Primary Objectives:
  • 1). SURVIVE.






~ TERRA's main HQ is located on the coast of Boston, Massachusetts, being a large building with many underground components and access to a whole monster database of contained titans. They also have remote cameras that document the containment facilities all over the world.

~ Military power is roughly equivalent to today's tech, however TERRA has access to several high-tech vehicles and weaponry in preparations for the monster's uprising. Mechs in this arc are virtually non-existent, or in early stages of development prototyping and would be more in the hands of the military. (One character mech is fine so as long as it reflects the prototyping stage)

(One character mech is fine so as long as it reflects the prototyping stage)

- As a personal request, I would prefer monsters to be more grounded in Earth's ecosystem as giant ancient monsters. Think of traditional kaiju from the Godzilla and Gamera series of Tokustatu films. Nothing too complicated yet - so keep very unique monsters of the lovecraftian type, or those that had hiveminds, to a minimal. A few of these things are OK within reason, but they ought not to be the focus of the Arc.

- (Any other answers to other questions will be documented here, so ask away!)

^ So here's the general premise of how Arc 1 is going to be like. If anyone else has questions about the arc, all answers will go up here. Like I said, I should hopefully have this RP be ready by the weekend.

I'm also thinking on taking in a CO-GM or two to help me along with organizing and also managing the RP if I'm ever absent.
