Gwenton Sci-tech Repository
GSR is a state of the art learning institution backed by one of the most advanced military tech companies in the world. Their school is a self sufficient, self contained series of buildings complete with their own private, secured servers. Dorms are available on site to allow students and staff the ease of travel from class to class.

Each student has a VR set installed in their private dorms. Connecting them to the server in their new avatar body. This is mostly for hanging with other students, shopping, studying, and Gearframe training and maintenance. Each student that logs in spawns in Central City. The main hub for all activities available to students. Outside the city, access to each of the battle maps used in competitions are available to explore and train within their Gearframes. Three bases can be found, one for the Orange Spiders deep in the Swamp battle map and one located within the castle walls of the Medieval battle map.



In addition to training with their Gearframes, students are encouraged to challenge each other in official matches for points. Points that can be used for upgrades for a student's Gearframe, but are also collectively gathered by each faction to fight for the right to be at the top of the hierarchy. Students receive a number of perks related to their ranking. Special privileges that seem to just appear with no known sender.

- "Here's to another great year at GSR!" -


Factions
To emphasize the strive for a better world, Gwenton divides their student body into three groups. In hopes this would push for friendly competition among the students to incentivize them to work harder; Gwenton has, perhaps unexpectedly, created a ruling hierarchy that has taken over the school. A flawed system that remains in place thanks to the overwhelmingly success it creates; only a few of the school's staff actually remember when all students weren't bound by their colors alone. When their factions represented more than the darkness in their leaders hearts.

Purple Ravens - 0pts Orange Spiders - 0pts Green Snakes - 0pts







Gearframe Styles and Models.
Gearframes come in three styles; Sword, Gun, and Shield. While any gearframe can equip any of the three; their specialty will be in which ever style they choose. Sword style benefiting close combat maneuvers, while Gun style charges and locks on easier. Shield styles known for having the higher defense while sporting more utilitarian options. To complement the styles, each Gearframe is designed with one of six models as a basis of its build. Each with a special Overdrive ability to aid in the virtual world.

@Keyblade87 Frankly, either/any visual is suitable with the virtual limitations. Just so its a robot that goes boom :3

Though, I may personally stick towards western style for generic enemies or what have I. The leaders of the factions for example have more anime-esque mechs.

@ everyone

Also another small change from one of my goofs. Overdrive abilities are given one charge per official match and recharge when they defeat another student.

[b][color=E6E6FA]• Overdrive Ability:[/color][/b] Standard starting ability based on Gearframe model. May be changed IC through special means. Overdrives hold one charge at the start of any official match; only recharging after defeating another Gearframe.

@KoL • Drive 1 [A-Bits]:

Looks mostly fine. A question or two though. What exactly do you mean by "support funnel"? Like drones or turrets? I feel like 24 might be a little much turrets to deploy at once, though better clarification might be alright.

@TheWendil • Second Drive [Cocytus]:

5 miles in all directions is a rather large area; especially if you're trying to freeze everyone in the area. And are you saying you can see out but other machines can't see in? I might suggest to make that low visibility for all; again, especially if it covers 5 miles.

Building models of them as a boy he eventually got to go to his dream school and has done everything he can to exceed the expectations set for him given his background as an orphan. He had managed to land a scholarship through a simulation program and good test scores. Now he is driven to be the best he can be in his second year wanting nothing more than to change the landscape of the school and make a splash.

Considering how big the battlefields tend to be I assume, 5 miles isn't a large radius. I can make it 3 if you like. As for the effects, it's not an insta-freeze, rather being built over time. However, I never suggested other machines can't see inside the mist. Being a mist, it'd be low visibility for everyone, though given the source is the Desperado, it'd have some natural sight advantage.

Yes, they are drones. Funnels is just an ubiquitous way of calling out semi-independent drones launched from mechas (cuz' that's how they are named in Gundam, and anime fans just adopted the terminology for anything that looks even similar) that I used it as a default. Generally the idea with these things is to be used as support weapons for saturation tactics, this is why the number may seem large, though I actually went with a very small load to say the truth.

They are a battlefield control weapon that require quite a bit of skill to use efficiently, mostly because they are quite weak when not used in great numbers.

Just an example of what these things are meant to be:

@TheWendil I see. I was mostly just asking for a little clarification:
"acting as a means of concealment by the machine."
Making sure it wasn't just pure blindness/invisability. But as for the radius, I suppose 5 is fine. Accepted.

@KoL Thanks for the explanation. Google wasn't any help with that term, but then again; I was in a bit of a rush and should've added 'gundam' along with it. Again, I didn't watch the show. So I may be a bit slow a few concepts; sorry. I was just making sure you weren't deploying Death Stars or more mini Gearframes. Accepted.

@Keyblade87 Accepted.

You all can put your cs's into the tab. Have a happy Easter! :3

• Faction: Green snakes
• Appearance:


• Name: Kaizen Karasawa
• Callsign: Black Glint
• Age: 17

• Background: Kaizen was a delinquent who secretly ran underground battleframe fight clubs. At first, the only motivation he had for fighting was for the money as he came from a financially challenged background but pretty soon he grew a passion for this gladiatorial sport. He eventually left that life due to the lackluster opponents and absence of standards to pursue more legally safe options. Despite his questionable past activities, his skill in battleframe combat is undeniable. Seeing as it was one of the few things he was actually talented at, Kaizen decided to enroll in a school where he can pursue his passion to his heart’s content, the GSR. His old self would have joined the Purple Ravens without hesitation, however he seems to think that joining the underdog faction of the Green Snakes will prove to be a much more interesting experience.

@TreasureSniper

Just a heads up. None of the images in your CS work here because of the DDoS protection of the site they are hosted. You probably should change the link to some other host like imgur or even the guild itself.
