Vacuo.

Kingdom of harsh weather, and harsher people.

Once a verdant paradise, now laid waste by greed and exploitation. The Great War changed everything... and yet nothing.

There is no true law here. No government. There is only The Rule.

"If you can survive here, you belong here."

Those who survive make the law. And no one is better at surviving than you...

For you... are a Hunter.

Or at least you will be.



I shouldn't have to go really in-depth with rules here. Just follow the standards of the forum, don't be a jerk, and write for fun, and we should all get along fine. The RWBY Name Rule will be enforced. In addition, I would prefer, but will not overtly require, characters to have some form of allusion to or inspiration from characters or individuals from literature or history. I may, however, allow this to be extended to games or music if the character idea is interesting enough. If you have any questions, just ask me beforehand. Also, consider the source.


Shade Academy

The only thing even close to resembling authority in Vacuo's wide, empty desert is The Huntsman Academy of Shade. Here young warriors, trained in any of the various combat schools around the world, including Vacuo's own Oasis Training Camp, gather to obtain the next step of knowledge and training, in order to become Huntsmen and Huntresses. Situated on what was once a thriving bed of resources, it can look rather foreboding from a distance. Home to the Vacuo CCTS Tower, and the only plot for airship landing for miles around, Shade is a little slice of everywhere in the middle of nowhere.


The Forge

Run by Maroon Awit, Core's Hammer is an oasis for the creative Huntsman or Huntress. Supplies can be gathered from all around, making for the finest built weapons, armor, and armaments this side of Sanus. At least as far as Maroon is concerned. Core's Hammer consists of a fenced in front area hanging containing a sign, a decorative anvil, several weapon racks, and two large quenching troughs- one on either side. The shop's entrance way serves as the main work area, where those with the Lien can rent tools for work, trade metals, and order armaments. The back wall is covered in a haphazard array of lock boxes, crates, and lockers, all for holding the belongings of various clients. Behind this wall, cordoned off by thick hanging cloth in two doorways, lie several work areas of more access and detail than those in the shop's front. While the ones in the front are mainly set for touch-ups and material tests, stations in the main room are equipped with the tools and materials needed to perform a standard job, complete with vertical quenching troughs, small ovens, anvils, and a stand of tools. In the back of Core's Hammer, there are special rooms for those with more involved projects, or projects that involve somewhat more dangerous materials.

Please follow the format of the Character Sheet. If you think of something to add, great, go ahead, but leave most things in the location for where they're asked. It just helps me know where to look for things, instead of them being in different places for different characters. If you think of something new, but aren't sure where to put it, the 'Other' section is a great catchall. You don't need to leave the Character Sheet centered, it's just easier to show you that way. I would, however, prefer that the categories remain emboldened and a visible color be picked for the text, thanks : )



I hope you find this interesting, and are willing to go along with me on this. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions, please, don't hesitate to ask me. I'm more than willing to help in any way I can.

Query:
The sections labeled "GM Only". Are we (the players) to leave that blank?

EDIT:
Also, how does this mesh in the show's timeline/plot? Before or after Vol. 3, an AU?, etc.

No, you're to fill them in and PM that information to GM's as part of the process for the character being accepted.

It's removed enough to the point where the characters and events of the series RWBY won't have that much of an effect on the RP.

Just going to chime in with my interest in making a character, if that's alright. I've gotten that certain itch to roleplay, and RWBY roleplays are always a jolly old time.

I've written some concepts already on the character sheets and have a pretty good idea of the character I want to play. I'm considering playing an android character, but I've just got a question about that. Would it be acceptable for my character to not have a Semblance - but an ability that makes use of technology instead? I'm sorry if this is a bit of a silly question, though - I've just been wondering about it.

@AGenericUser That would be fine. In fact, that would sort of be required. Androids don't have Aura*.

Hi hi, I've been itching for a RWBY RP again, so I'll be writing up a character for this.

Rightio, nifty - and thanks for the clarification. I'd been thinking about how androids didn't have aura in the show, but I was a little thrown off by the aura and semblance parts of the character sheet. In the past I'd been in roleplays where androids could use them, so I was a little curious on how it worked here. Sorry about that!

Again, thanks for the answer! I'd been hoping that was the case.

Wow, Raye and Saffron have some real strong parallels in their backstories. It's like a distorted mirror. Would you mind terribly role-playing with her in the future?

You ask that as though I’m gonna say no. Of course I’d love to roleplay with you~

Question: I noticed most of the characters that have been posted in the Characters tab don't appear here in the OOC tab. Were they submitted and approved through PMs and if so, is that the expected submission procedure for everyone interested?

@Nyahahameha Standard procedure is A.) posted in the OOC tab, or B.) PM’ed to any one of us GMs. The choice is yours.

@EnterTheHero Phew, good to know I'm still okay then. :)

Another question, then: Since I decided to post it to this thread, does that mean one of the GMs will PM me once they've read it to discuss the "GM Only" sections, or will I still need to contact a GM myself for that?

@Nyahahameha Cut the “GM Only” sections and PM the details to one of us.
