Happy Birthday to me.
Hello all. I am an experienced writer who is writing my own fiction stories on the side. I can role play any genre. What I love most is being able to go-all-out when weaving tales with other writers. It just makes the story more interesting, so I can't wait to write with you. :)
@Saren CrimsonIf you're still interested in this, then you're going to have until Sunday to get a CS going. Because we're planning on starting the Alpha missions and once these start, I'm putting a halt to anymore enrolls until the missions conclude.
For a persistent world roleplay I would like to see that any story I create has some impact or is perhaps referenced by another group of players, possibly for their own use. For example, and using Rogue One as an example, if I was to have a story where my character was to obtain the blueprints to the Deathstar, that information is now readily available for another group of players. They don't need to know the entire roleplay persay, but a short summary for what was achieved would help. If the GMs think that what was achieved was too much, then they could alter it by saying the data was corrupted or something, but that's where their expertise in balancing the game comes in.
To sum up, perhaps a thread listing an index of the outcomes/summary of each RP would be a good option.
<Snipped quote by Euphonium>
I wouldn't say that's necessarily a PW Mod/GM's role, but a player's role. You are running and managing your own individual RPs in the game, and part of that would be to give feedback on what has happened in your RP. The PW Mods can chase you up, but they should not have to write up a wiki summary on your story. Besides, I'm not talking about a 20 page submission on every fine detail, it just has to be a short paragraph similar to what you would see on the back of a DVD cover.
By offering feedback you are also opening up the opportunity to hear about other things that may affect your own RP. "I did this in that RP" "Ok, but remember there will be a patrol in this sector here because this happened in this other RP"
We're definitely going to need this. Something easy to just copy-paste and toss into a Chronology thread.
I might start brainstorming a persistent world SL with some folks I know. Therefore when this thing kicks off, we'll already know what we're going to do. :D
Actually, you know what, I'm not even going to bother. I'm going to deploy again one day and this world may move on without me lol, so never mind. I'm not "persistent" enough for the Persistent World. XD
@Weird TalesElectromagnetic Wave: This technique allows him to fire off a blast of electromagnetism that hits with a great amount of concussive force and heat. The power of this ability varies depending on how much energy he puts into the attack.
Mighty Force: Kin unleashes a wave of repelling force that hits his enemies with crushing concussive power. The size and power of this technique is depended by how much power he puts into and if used too much then he will experience fatigued.
Repelling Force: This is a defensive technique where Kin uses forces of attraction and repulsion to create a wave of force that can repel both projectiles and melee attacks depending on how power he puts into it. If used too much Kin will feel fatigue from overusing the technique.
These three abilities are almost the exact same. Two of those abilities you could probably make one ability, such as Electromagnetic Wave and Mighty Force.
Have you looked at the superpower wiki to get ideas for more things you can do with electromagnetism?
Positive attitude; no discrimination; and whatever happens in game is handled in game, and if it can't be handled in game, then the GMs need to handle it and not the peanut gallery. The only persistent world I was ever involved in was during the age of MSN chat, and the Yahoo chat RP community self-deemed Eden at the time. Every situation that happened between chatrooms, which were realms and kingdoms at the time, it was settled in game with an actual army comprised of players. The more actual players you had under your banner, the stronger your kingdom was. It was very successful because everyone stayed in the illusion of the game, and those who couldn't were simply removed.
____B I O____ Name Grisha; The White Lion of the North Former name General Oniyon (O-nee-yah-n) Age Appears to be in his early 30s Gender Male Race Saiyan Height 6'9" Weight 275 lbs Hair Color Black Eye Color Dark Grey Occupation Guardian of Kousetsu Village Appearance Power Level 910 Ki Color █████████████
______A P P E A R A N C E_______
The warrior without his gear stands tall and rather thick with his jutting muscles. His complexion is tanned and hair black with sickle-like sideburns. His personality tends to match his appearance: brutish, but he is kinder than his façade puts on. Intimidating, the warrior looks like quite the foe, which often inspires people who don't know him to leave him alone. There is, however, a charm that exists about the warrior. The impression he gives off of a big, dominating male tends to attract many a female, in which Lena is forced to keep back with a fist.
In his gear, no one familiar with Saiyans would have ever guessed him to be one. His tail is always comfortably wrapped about his hips and his short, bladed hair hidden beneath his headdress. It is the exchange of blows or the discovery of his tail that reveals his Saiyan blood.
Equipment/Clothing: Upon his head is a headdress crafted from the fur and bones of the White Devil. It is what gives him his stark mane that acts as his "White Lion" trademark. Upon his broad shoulders sits a mantle of brown fur and steel. A brown cape obscures the bulk of his power, trapping his body heat within a cloak of warmth. Beneath the shroud is a fur-lined, black vest and black trousers. Upon his knees are steel kneeguards and about his forearms are black steel and leather bracers. The teeth of the White Devil were fashioned into a necklace that rests against his collar. The boots at his feet complete his arctic ensemble, estimating the weight of his equipment to be 145 lbs.
White Devil Crown: Designed by Grisha from the dense bones of the monster yeti known by the villagers of Kosetsu as The White Devil, the headdress alone weighs 45 lbs. It is more than just a crown. It is his identity and memento of his birth into his frozen home.
______P E R S O N A L I T Y_______
Since waking from his coma, Grisha is rather free-spirited and unbound. The warrior goes where ever he pleases, when he pleases, and sometimes he won't return for days, which makes Lena worried sick. The Saiyan has learned to speak coherent sentences from Lena, but with him being so aloof, his speaking ability is still mediocre, neither entirely primitive nor advanced.
The warrior's desire to train overcame his desire to learn the etiquette Lena tries to educate him with. Grisha is simply downright barbaric from his bad manners, to his ability to smell on the level of a bloodhound, and to his appetite. The guardian often returns from being away when summoned by the Lion Horn. It is a horn carved from bone, which is blown in emergencies. It is wise for a visitor in Kosetsu village to not start trouble. If the horn is ever blown on him or her, they will face the fury of the lion. An enemy of Kosetsu village is an enemy of Grisha's "'nough said."
The Saiyan can't resist a challenge. He loves being able to throw some punches with a sparring partner or most of all, one that can give him a good fight. One of his biggest stereotypes is that the warrior is unintelligent because of the way he speaks. On the contrary, if challenged, his opponent will find that he is quite clever if not reckless.
Due to his mental deficiency, Grisha sometimes has irrational bouts of emotion in the form of rage or frustration triggered by something indefinite. No one knows what triggers these attacks, but its been assumed from witnessing certain situations that its when his brain is trying to remember or recall something to mind that just isn't there or accessible.
Overall, the warrior is a handful, and when around people, he needs constant supervision. The warrior isn't afraid to say it like it is, and is unaccustomed to the advanced technology that exists outside his home region.
______H I S T O R Y_______
Grisha was once a general by the name Oniyon in the Saiyan Elite. He was ordered to conquer a mysterious planet to transform it into a colony for the Saiyan race. During his journey, a comet nearly struck his ship. His ship was sideswiped and sent whirling into the cosmos. Several of his unit's ships were destroyed. His pod approached a planet unlike any he had ever seen before. His pod broke the atmosphere to plunge haphazardly into a snowy scape. It crashed into the base of a mountain and at the foot of a frozen lake. The chilling waters and temperature penetrated the capsule, and in his terror, the ice had taken him.
The mysterious meteor that had crashed in the mountains attracted the people of the nearby village Kosetsu. Subordinates of the village chief were sent to investigate the impact site and when they returned, they brought with them on a sled a mysterious orb. With ice picks and mallets, they broke the ice about the pod and forced open its hatch to find frozen within a man donning a uniform unfamiliar to them--and they hadn't seen much living in the mountains their entire lives. The people were unsure if their find was man or alien, but it was dubbed that the creature, whatever he was, was dead. The village chief ordered the body to be thawed in the hot spring and given a proper burial. As commanded, the body was thawed, and the still waters became disturbed by oxygen bubbles. To the people's awe, the alien had survived but was in a deep coma.
The White Lion
There was a wicked creature that occasionally attacked the village. Twelve feet with horns like a devil, the yeti would terrorize Kosetsu village, devouring their herds, children, and those vulnerable enough to be caught. The White Devil came unpredictably once a month and would consume twenty villagers before its appetite was satiated. As the people scattered in fright from the devil's presence, the alien was unguarded and became vulnerable. The alien's caretaker Lena tried to deter the devil from reaching him, but held tightly by her father, she was unable to do so.
The White Devil found him and hefted him above his jaws. Dangling the naked Saiyan above rows of blade-like teeth, the Saiyan harshly woke and unleashed an enraged scream. The decibels of his scream shook the yeti down to his cells until he exploded, having been ripped apart by the assault. Bathed in blood and screaming irrationally, the villagers thought they were observing a lion, bellowing his dominance over a kill as his tail thrashed about.
I Am Grisha
The alien responded to questions although slowly. His gaze was distant, and the villagers believed that his brain may have been damaged by the cold. When asked his name, the Saiyan responded ineptly with, "Gr...sh..." Lena thus named him Grisha and with her weaning, he became a respected and cherished guardian of the village.
Grisha, Lena, and Tobias have left the frozen north on a journey to the World Martial Arts Tournament. They are hoping that Grisha will win the tournament and some zeni to aid Kousetsu Village's survival for the winters to come.
______C O M B A T_______
Shatter (Offensive): Grisha stomps the ground upon his opponent’s charging approach, causing the ground to shatter and upheaval, throwing his opponent’s balance and opening up their defense for attack.
Faint (Defensive): The bigger you are, the slower you are right? Wrong! With Grisha’s muscles inflated with ki, he can move in short, instant bursts, leaving an afterimage of himself to fool the enemy.
Steel Thyself (Defensive): Grisha will execute a stance and concentrate on hardening his body with ki, raising his defense against physical and ki attacks.
Muscle Counter (Offensive): Grisha will contract his muscles the moment an opponent’s fist or feet makes contact. The sudden bulge of his contracted muscle sends a shock through his opponent’s limbs. An average human would risk breaking their bones.
War Cry (Offensive): Grisha’s enraged scream. The decibels are so strong that the villagers of Kousetsu say that was how Grisha killed the White Devil. His scream vibrated the White Devil’s body until the yeti exploded. Best scenario, a sturdier opponent will find themselves temporarily deaf and disoriented.
______O T H E R_______
Lena (NPC): She is Grisha’s adoptive family. She tends to take care of Grisha like a mother does her child, except she’s the younger one. Despite being a teenager, she knows how to put her foot down when Grisha gets out of hand. Her father Tobias claims that she gets that quality from her mother. Lena secretly likes Grisha, and she will become jealous of any other guy or girl who tries to flirt with him.
Tobias (NPC): He is Lena’s father and Grisha’s well…they don’t exactly see eye-to-eye. Tobias sees Grisha as a wild animal Lena brought into the house and won’t release back into the wilderness. They always butt heads, and even so, they still somewhat respect each other. Grisha will still protect Tobias if only because he’s Lena’s father.
Because the last game started with the World Martial Arts Tournament, a very cliche beginning to almost every Dragon Ball game hosted on here. I could tell my players were growing bored with the idea, and so I decided to start this game differently. The way a real DB game should start. We're going to have most of the same folks from the last game with their characters in this one, but the first Chapter/Saga will be more open world. Read below.
Meat and Potatoes
This is a role play based in the Dragon Ball Universe. There are certain aspects of the DBU that will be highly-manipulated for the sake of making this a workable RP idea. If while you are reading over this game, you decide that you are not interested, then please move on and do not cause any drama. This will be an original universe. All canon characters from the manga and series do not exist. In this DBU world, the story will revolve around what we make of it. This game will have elements of sandbox with a GM-led plot. It is highly-encouraged for players to interact and write together in order to make a nice story.
I do not plan for this game to move that fast. I expect the game to move leisurely. If you are expecting a rapid-fire game, then move along. Do not join this game because it will move in a patient manner not to exceed two weeks of inactivity. Players have 14 days to get in contact with the GM if they haven’t told the GM already about their absences. A player who hasn’t posted in 30 days will automatically be dropped from the game.
In this DBU game, as a GM, I am hoping to see some creative ideas within the limitations provided by my game. As with the DB franchise, the combat in this game will be important and players will be rewarded for participating in such scenarios. If your combat writing is poor, then you can expect it to get better in this game. While most of the combat encounters will be PVE, there will be opportunities for PVP. Players do not have to participate in PVP, but those who do will be rewarded. The PVP will not be PVP for the sake of PVP but will come around during specific plotlines in the story. I just gave you the run-down of the entire game and how it will go. If you’ve made it this far, continue on to learn more.
The planet is Fictional Earth (Dragon World), but this is an alternate universe of DBU. While all the events originally took place in Universe 7, our Universe is Parallel Universe 7 (reverse 7). In this universe, Planet Vegeta still exists and has not been blown to pieces. This universe is a clean plate, so whatever happens, happens and becomes a part of this universe’s history. Earth is modern-futuristic with its technology. Flying vehicles, robots, and compact-space technology exist; and space travel is possible though not common. Earth currently is very xenophobic and very few people who are sane or not in such a field of study believe that aliens exist or that there is even life in outerspace.
The continent in which this game exists is unnamed in the series, but for this game we’re going to call it “Kujira,” which is Japanese for “whale.” The map is oddly in the shape of a whale, and so therefore, that is the name. Below is a map created by a DeviantArt artist, and it will be the map used in this game. All canon references can be ignored. However, use this for reference for your character’s origin story.
Below I am listing only the major races allowed in this game. If you do not see a certain race in this game, then it is not permitted. OC races are not allowed in this game.
Humans: Humans are the dominant race in Kujira. Unlike how they are depicted in the DB franchise, in this game, humans stand as much of a chance as Saiyans. However, what separates a superhuman from an average human in this world is their martial arts. Martial artists possess a higher level of ki and have the discipline to transcend to a much stronger level. Other sub-races included in the human category are: magi, cyborgs, mutants, and bio-engineered humans. These sub-races may have unique qualities such as weapon programs, supernatural abilities, and magic.
Magi only grow stronger by learning new spells. Magi are incapable of sensing/using ki. Instead, magi are capable of sensing magic and paranormal occurrences caused by another magi tampering with magic.
Cyborgs only grow stronger by acquiring weapon upgrades, which they can only acquire from a scientist or engineer, thus making them dependent on such a character existing in game. They are not able to use ki. They cannot sense ki naturally and instead will have to acquire the ability by a special program.
Mutants are limited by their mutation. The ability their mutation granted them is the only ability that will grow stronger. Mutants are not martial artists. They focus on developing their mutant ability. They cannot sense ki, but they can sense other mutants.
Bio-Engineered Humans these are humans who were either artificially created through genetic engineering or had genetic engineering performed on their bodies. These humans are naturally above average and are created/designed for a purpose. They are often seen bound to a government agency. Similar to Cyborgs, these humans can only advance in strength by undergoing experimentation. Therefore, their creator must be a character in the game.
Clarification: The sub-race of Human are an option. Players can play normal humans, but if you want your normal human to stand a chance in this game, then he or she must know a martial art. The martial art can be completely made-up or inspired by an actual martial art. If you are planning to make a hybrid style of multiple martial arts, instead of listing the martial art styles, just make an original martial art. Spare us.
Beastmen: Beastmen are animals except for insects and mythical animals. Dinosaurs exist on Kujira just as normal animals exist. The Beastmen are a race who are anthropomorphic mammals and reptiles, and can be dinomen as well. The Dragon class or any mythical species does not naturally exist on Earth, and instead, is treated as a foreign species. It can also be treated as a summoned creature by a Magi. I am willing to twist some things for those who wish to have a dragon Beastman or some other mythic Beastmen—however, there will be a very hard limit on these types. Like humans, there can be cyborg, mutant, and bio-engineered beastmen. Beastmen possess the qualities of the animal whose appearance they mimic, which makes them naturally above the average human. For a normal beastman (non-subrace Beastman) to be above the average beastman, the beastman would have to be a martial artist.
Androids: Androids are a common sight mostly around populated cities. They perform several services such as cleaning, building, travel guide, interpreter, etc. They are even programmed to serve defense purposes such as assisting police officers in stopping crime or the military in combating terrorists. The artificial intelligence (A.I.) of an android can be as advanced as they are capable of human-like emotion or as simplistic as basic computation. The human or beastman types are very rare for they require tons of money and resources to create. These machines are rarely seen and if they do exist, very few people can tell them apart from anyone else. Androids can function without a creator, however, if they wish to advance in power, then they need an engineer who will grant them such enhancements.
Not all alien races are listed here. Why? Because they are not permitted in this game. If you don’t like that, then do not join. This does not mean you won't see these alien races in the game, it just means they are not playable.
Saiyans: Just a warning, if this game receives too many Saiyans, then I will limit the race. The only sub-race I’ll allow of the Saiyan race is a Half-Saiyan/Half-Human. If you do plan to make a Half-Saiyan/Half-Human, then I expect an explanation to be in your character’s origin story seeing as Planet Vegeta exists and the Saiyans are a conqueror race. If you plan to play a Saiyan period, then there better be a valid explanation for why they are on Earth, how did they get here, and what is their goal? [Race Reference: Saiyans]
Namekians: All the Namekians resemble males, and they reproduce asexually. I am not going to write a race description for them. You can read about them here. [Race Reference: Namekian]
This is a summary of the first saga of the game. Players can sandbox and will be able to see this plot gradually unfold as they play.
GM Plot Type:PvE (PVP is optional between players who agree to it) The peace of the planet Earth is abruptly disrupted by the arrival of an alien ship. The ship lands like a meteor, putting a crater in Parsely City the size of a city block. Skyscrapers crumble, people run in panic and terror, and news reporters rush to the scene. Were they attacked? Was it a terrorist bombing? Rising from the crater to the citizens awe is a green man who offers no introduction as the people silently gaze on. He instead scans the beings around him, his hand resting on a strange orange glass visor that crosses both of his eyes. Once he lowers his hand, he hold it out before the people, and in a flash of white light, Parsely City is no more than a swirling gargantuan dome of white-hot energy. In an instant, the city and all of its people were gone, and the invader nowhere to be seen. Left behind is only his empty ship and the crater it made.
The Story: Your character might have seen the incident on television just before the screen went blank or felt the sudden skyrocket of ki. There is an alien menace on Earth named Dyce, and he is seeking out Earth’s strongest fighters in order to quickly obliterate them in preparation for his race’s invasion. His race is known as the Zandols. An alien species of warriors who seek out weakness and destroy it. Only the strong deserve to exist, and so the planet is purged, conquered, used, and destroyed after they’re done. Other alien races have compared the Zandols to weeds, how they take over a nice garden, and destroy its beauty. They populate in a hydra process. All it takes is one Zandol to conquer a planet for if any part of him is split into pieces, then those pieces will grow into a new warrior. Again, weeds.
Player Goal: Your goal is to come to this Saga with a character who is not at “end game” level. What I mean by “end game” level is you don’t create a character that has nothing to learn because they know everything like a Mary Sue. Allow your character to grow and develop. Allow your character to meet other characters and don’t make too many NPCs to the point you’re writing with yourself. Do not come here to write with yourself. This is a role playing “group game.” Write together! Build stories. This saga is going to be added to your character’s back story after.
PVE & PVP
This section will explain combat etiquette for both PVE & PVP. If you are to engage in combat with GM-controlled NPCs (PVE) or another player (PVP), there is a very simple etiquette to use. The GM will not control all minions. The GM only controls mini-bosses and bosses, so if you are ever thrown into a GM-situation with multiple minions, you, the player is free to dictate their demise. However, if you are engaging a named GM-controlled mini-boss or boss, then there are some simple rules to follow:
1. Never Auto-Attack a Mini-Boss/Boss or Another Player. As mentioned above, minions are free game. However, mini-bosses/bosses and other players are not. When you are writing an attack toward a MB/B or player character, you must not complete the attack by writing the results. Here is an example:
Bob ran toward Suzie, swung with a right hook for her jaw, and shattered her jaw with his fist. Bob then quickly ran away before she could fight back.
The post above is garbage. Do not write this garbage in my game. Do not ever dictate what happens to another player’s character or my bosses. You do not know how that player will react or if your attack will even hit. Now below, is the correct way to write an action:
Bob ran toward Suzie and swung with a right hook for her jaw.
This post leaves the outcome open to be dictated by the other player. Your goal in a PVP match is to force your opponent into a corner like chess. You can do this merely by challenging their attention to detail. If they swing at you with their right fist, but you react to their left fist by mistake, and it wasn’t their left fist attacking, then you gave your opponent a hit.
This leads us to the next discussion.
2. There are only a certain amount of actions you can perform in a single turn.
You can either write an attack and a defensive move, two attack moves, or one to two defense moves. I will give an example of two.
Attack-Defense: Bob carefully stepped toward Suzie. His right arm was curled at the elbow, fist clenched at cheekbone level in a guard (defense). His left fist jabbed outwards toward her mouth, fist rotating to deliver his full force behind it (attack). Explanation: In Attack-Defense, your character not only attacks but sets up a defense in the case of a counter.
Attack-Attack: Bob hopped a foot toward Suzie, his right leg rising and tucking at hip level before it thrust out, sending his foot toward her gut. His right foot then quickly retracted, his right leg curling before he thrust it out once more, sending his foot toward Suzie’s chin. Explanation:In Attack-Attack, the character sacrifices his or her defense in order to execute two attacks in what is deemed a “chain.” A chain is tricky and should only be used as a finisher or if there’s an opportunity to take the advantage, say if an opponent is stunned or disoriented. A healthy opponent can break the chain by reacting to the first attack, which will nullify the second attack ever happening. Here’s an example of that:
Chain Break: Suzie pivoted on her right-foot and turned outward and sideways to Bob. Her left hand snagged his right ankle and the palm of her right hand thrust toward his kneecap with enough force to possibly break it. Explanation:Suzie never responds to Bob’s second attack because it never happened. Because Suzie reacted to the first attack, the second attack was nullified for Bob’s writer had implied that the following motion would have happened if his initial attack had been successful and not hindered. Suzie’s counter will more than likely be a hit for Bob didn’t set up any defenses to counter it. What Suzie used to counter Bob was Attack-Defense. Suzie also mentioned the intended strength of her strike, but didn't compromise her intentions by saying the assault, fore sure, happened.
Defense-Defense: Now a defensive move can be an evasion (dodge motions: side-step, duck, pivot, lean, dip, step-back, dive, etc.), a grab, or a stance. Defense-Defense is usually performed when a fighter is blocking the barrage of another fighter, when a fighter is being overwhelmed, when a fighter is trying to open his opponent’s guard, or when a fighter is trying to tire out his or her opponent. I will not give an example of this technique for it is pretty self-explanatory. For the example of a grab, refer to the “Chain Break” example.
3. A “grab” is a free move. Because a grab is non-lethal, it is a free move. Refer to the “Chain Break” example. When Suzie grabbed Bob’s ankle, the grab was not the attack. The grab did not cause him harm. The grab instead held him in a position where she would have an advantage. A grab can be countered just like Bob’s kick was countered in Suzie’s post. A fighter can logically counter a grab with a grab of their own and get into this grab, counter-grab, hand battle. A grab will not be considered an attack, but it is considered a defensive move. It may seem like an auto-attack because the writer has to write their character successfully grabbing the other opponent in order for the next move to make sense, but it’s not an auto-attack.
4. Chaining Moves. Chaining or Combos are a very advanced form of fighting. When you create chains such as Defense-Attack-Attack or Defense-Defense-Attack or longer, you risk the opponent breaking that chain somewhere. However, it can also be used to your advantage because it forces the opponent to focus and pay attention to each of your character's movements in order to logically break the chain. The chain will either be successfully broken or the opponent will miss a detail and fail, causing the combo to succeed. A chain break doesn't always cause a consequence, but there can be a consequence. As you get more comfortable with text combat, feel free to try using combos. Sometimes it makes for a very epic fight.
5. The GM and Co-GMs will be judging the PVP matches. I do not care too much about PVE as I do PVP. I recommend players go into PM or our discord chat (if we decide to have one) and talk out the match prior to attempting it. If players cannot decide on a winner beforehand, then one will definitely be decided in game when they do a blind fight. A blind fight being when neither player knows who the winner will be. What the GM and Co-GMs decide is final. The GM is the main judge you have to win. The Co-GMs say one thing, but if the GM says something else then that will be a win or lose for you. Understand this rule. What the GM and Co-GM decide goes. If you do not think you will be able to agree with this ruling, then do not join this game. I do not tolerate drama.
Disclaimer: Power Level is a big deal in this game, and I know that some sub-races are unable to detect it without certain spells, programs, enhancements, etc. See Power Level as a ranking in this game to tell you how powerful a character is.
A power level system exists in this game. Power level can be increased as a cash-out after every PVP match, mini-boss/boss fight, and saga completion. It can also be increased in spars between characters. The largest cash-outs are for defeating Saga Bosses and winning tournaments. The power level system may become unfair to any player joining the game months-late or even a year-late. I reward longevity. The writers who enjoy this game, who join from the get-go, and who are in this game until it perishes with the GM or Co-GM who tries to pick it up in my absence, they deserve to be rewarded. There are too many players on this site who join games and then immediately bail from the game for random and mostly selfish reasons. If an IRL situation requires you to go absent, then you are always welcome back once the situation is resolved. If you leave the game because you joined too many games or you realize that the writing level of this game is more than you can handle, then these situations are easy to figure out before deciding to commit. Any who, long-story short, I reward veteran RPers. The writers who join this game now will have the strongest characters in the game in the long-run. Any new players who join months and years later will have to be mentored by the veterans in order to catch up.
In this game, every character will start at power level 910. As your power level increases, you will be able to acquire more slots for your character's techniques. If you are playing a magi, cyborg, android, mutant, etc. See these as program or ability slots.
Later as your character levels and receives their first “transformation” players will be able to customize a super form for themselves, which will be limited by a frequency per battle. If there are two battles within a Saga and you already used the transformation in the first battle, then you won't be able to use it in the second battle. That is what I mean by frequency.
For every 4,000 points a character’s power level is above another that character will seem invulnerable. To better clarify, if Player A’s Character is power level 1,000 and they are fighting Player B’s Character who is power level 5,000, then Player A better go find some help before he/she attempts to fight Player B. Player A would not be able to effectively solo Player B.

Avoid posting pictures of famous anime characters. I do not want to see One Piece characters, Naruto, Bleach, Fist of the North Star, Jojo, etc. I recommend using OC art, drawing your own, or digital art. Real-life photography is not allowed. Also, you do not have to have a picture and it doesn’t have to specifically be in this exact spot in your character sheet. As long as the picture is sized down, you can post it anywhere in the sheet. (Feel free to use this website for picture modification pixlr.com/editor) Do not post a gigantic picture in your CS. I will ignore your CS.
This is a basic summary of your character’s day-to-day appearance. You can include clothing, tattoos, scars, accessories, hair style, etc.
Just a run-down of the personality: likes, dislikes, combat behavior, and if he, she, they have any goals.
The origin story. I want at least be 3 paragraphs.
Weapon & Techniques
This is an optional area. I’m sure most people will use their fists, but for those who want a weapon, you are free to have one. You must answer these questions: Length? Weight? Appearance (Visual or Written)? Anything special about it? How many rounds per magazine (only if applicable)?
910; everyone starts at this level. EVERYONE!
Any color of the rainbow except rainbow lol.
You are allowed Five Technique Slots at this time. With these technique slots, you can write whatever special move in here such as a Ki Projection Move. Whatever move signature to your character. More technique slots will be awarded by the GM based on scenario circumstances and character development. If you are role playing a sub-race, then spells (three spells not three different spells in one spell. Three spells), mutant ability (you can only pick one theme and then you must forever stay within that theme. Three abilities not three abilities in one. Three abilities.), upgrades, etc. would go here.

1. Do not come to this game to argue. If you read over this recruitment thread, and saw something that you didn't like, then move on. 2. No Enormous Pics/No Neon or Dark Font Colors. There is nothing wrong about using pictures. It’s when you do not size the picture down that it becomes a problem. You can use websites like pixlr or imgur (google them) to size down your pictures before you post them. If you don’t feel like resizing them, then link them or put a hider around them. Avoid using neon colors. They do nothing but hurt the eyes and nobody wants to read neon-font. Avoid somber colors that blend into the already dark background of the site. I should not have to highlight your post in order to read it. It should just be visible to read. 3. Whatever the GM says goes. I try to be fair to the best of my ability. However, I do not try to please the world nor do I care to. If we discuss an issue and we can't seem to come to an agreement, then it is best that the issue be dropped. If you remain persistent and create drama in my game, you will be reported. 4. Read my Game. I did not write this for my health. I wrote this mostly for you than for me. The number one way to get on my shit list is to show me that you didn't read my game. The best way you do this is by frequently asking me questions that are answered in the damn OP. If I suspect you're not thoroughly reading this OP, then I'm going to stop caring and you're not going to be allowed in this game. Why would I allow a person in whose hand I would have to hold throughout the entire game because they don't want to read a freakin' text role play game on a text role play site? 5. GM questions. If you ask a question, mention me. If you're talking to me, mention me. If you want my attention mention me because that is what that button is for. If it looks like I ignored you, 99.9% of the time it is because you didn't mention me and I lost your comment or question in the OOC flood. Mention me. Mention me. Mention me. I have to repeat this because people don't do it. 6. Be open and friendly. I am very big on character interaction. It is often overlooked in games. Please collaborate with other writers in this game. This game will become way more interesting if you do. 7. Romance. I like romance. Some of us do. But if you plan on walking the borderline of the Guild rules, then take it into PMs. 8. Third-Person Past Tense. The only acceptable style of writing in this game is third-person past tense. 9. Have fun. There is only so much I can do as a GM. I cannot make you have fun. I cannot make you enjoy the character that you created. I cannot make you seek out writers to collaborate with. All I do is guide the game and make sure everything goes forward and not backwards. You have to do the rest. So please make the most of this game.
Hello all. I am an experienced writer who is writing my own fiction stories on the side. I can role play any genre. What I love most is being able to go-all-out when weaving tales with other writers. It just makes the story more interesting, so I can't wait to write with you. :)
