Current Starting class tomorrow, so my activity will taper off for the next week or so, after which I intend to hop in an Advanced RP or start Futility Chapter II! Looking forward to it!

I love cyberpunk too much, and I'm finally GMing a cyberpunk RP. Come check all that juicy lore out!…

As much as writers vilify the idea of any sort of formulaic approach to crafting a story, I'd highly recommend Vogler's The Writer's Journey to anyone struggling with a lack of ideas for a story.

I am a writer and poet aiming to create surrealistic and abstract imagery in my work. I also greatly enjoy worldbuilding, roleplaying, and collaborative writing in general. I also work as a writing advisor, so I enjoy working with, critiquing, and supporting writing in most of its forms. If you would like to work with me with any piece of prose or poetry, let me know.

If you have roleplay concepts, questions, or ideas I'd be happy to listen. I should be able to respond to activity on a near daily basis, but my posts often come at much longer intervals (every other day or something similar). I suddenly enjoy GMing roleplays. I've started two larger collaborative worldbuilding RPs and I intend to create more in the future. For those that enjoy the projects I GM, contact me as necessary. PM at your will.

Contact me on Discord at Opposition#4407.

At this point, I think I'm going to temporarily cancel Coins with the possibility of a reboot in the future. It seems most of the potential players have lost interest. I'm sorry to those of you that were looking forward to it and put in the effort to make characters. I'll keep you updated about future RPs.
Haha, you're alright. Just edit your character into that slot once we go through and accept it.
Everything looks pretty solid with Phil, though is it possible that you could elaborate a bit more on the idea of 'Malice' as his vice. I like the idea you're working with, but because Virtues and Vices are going to play a significant role in what situations your characters encounter, I'd like us to each have vices that can be put into play in a number of situations. If you were to add what sort of effects trigger his Malice and what he often does in the face of this anger, that would be awesome. Other than that, Phil is alright to be moved to the CS tab. I'll try to get your secret out to you tomorrow.
@OppositionHey welcome back, my boy! How's that secret for Esra going?

I'm almost done with the write-ups for yours and Bork's secret files. I'll try to get them to you by the end of the day today!
No worries Myst! I intend on opening up applications further on in the story, so you'll definitely have a place if you want to hop in at a later date.

Also, I'm back early which means I'm around once again if anyone needs any help. Applications are still open if any newcomers are interested as well!
Everything looks alright. The character concept should fit rather well into the team. You can move your sheet to the character tab when ready. I'll PM you about a secret in the next coming days. I've got a few ideas for what Esra's might be.

Good to hear from both of you! I look forward to seeing what you create.

Applications will be open for a while longer as everyone finishes up their sheets and gets their secrets before we begin. You're welcome to join in!

I also have some news I must let you all know of, as a family emergency has arisen and I'll be absent from the 24th to the 31st. I may have very limited contact with RPGuild, but I'll otherwise be unable to confer with you guys. As such, I think that may be a good deadline to get sheets in completely. I'll get any revisions and comments I can to you guys before that date, and we'll begin promptly on the following days after I return.
I hope this doesn't discourage some of you, as I still intend to proceed with Coins as planned. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience!

It is! We are still in the character creation stage. More information can be found in the OOC here. I'll be on standby if people need help with any drafts or have any questions.
I've dictated all the main notes I had to your first draft in PMs. I think everything is pretty solid, including the backstory you've added. In terms of selecting a vice, I suppose I'll try and elaborate on that a bit. The Vice is meant to be something of an idea which points out the deepest flaw in your character that will essentially let them walk the line between the dark and light sides of the coin.
Diana has 'anarchy' listed as hers because I imagine she will have to be closely monitored lest the operation may start to take precedence over order and societal standards that other rely on. She'll essentially gravitate towards chaos unless stopped even if that prompts danger for the team or civilians. (But more on that as the story progresses).

For your Vices, I encourage you to pick a sort of flaw that is less of a physical thing and more of an ideological concern that is deeply rooted in their psyche. Your Vice, then, is in essence the evil portion of your personality. I can't think of any specific ideas for your character, though I encourage you to come up with a few ideas of your own and then just continue narrowing it down until you find the one that you'd like to play most.

VIRTUE: HONOR - In spite of his inability to be sensitive nor handle social situations with a great deal of care, Jonah is the very model of what it means to be an honorable man. Jonah will not be swayed by any means to negotiate doing morally ambiguous actions for the 'greater good' nor does he take part in lying to his close friends or family. Throughout crises or difficult situations, he will always maintain his moral compass, no matter the cost. He ultimately believes in doing the right thing no matter what and believes in treating his friends as well as his enemies fairly in return. Jonah can always be counted on to be the first man who acts as a check to those who would propose solutions that would be deemed....questionable.

It's always good to have a paladin in the group to stop them from going straight to the morally depraved, villainous route.


Of course, I'm already thinking of ways Diana is going to mess with his head.

I really like the character concept here. It's really unique with the nature of Jonah's physical disabilities, so I'll be interested to see how this sort of 'Enforcer' differs from the usual GI guy who punches people on spy mission. Overall, everything seems solid. I can't seem to point out any real flaws at the moment.
Perhaps if you're looking to make some edits, you could mess around with skills and flaws. At the moment, it seems like most all of your skills and flaws are fighting related, and we aren't always going to be throwing hand as much as some of us may want to.
I'm struggling between 4 different character concepts and I've got no idea which one to choose, arrrgghhghdhgdsfjh.

As @Atrophy said, you're welcome to throw ideas up here, and I'll also talk through concepts with anyone that's struggling via PMs. Let me know!
As I work through some character ideas, I was curious if you had a specific age range that you wanted us to shoot for? Would it be ok to go with a more mature character (maybe 50s or 60s)? He wouldn't be as physically adept as some of his younger counterparts, but I could still see him contributing to the group, perhaps as the negotiator or the chauffeur.

That would be perfectly fine! I didn't have any age in mind. In fact, if the characters were more varied and different from one another, that might add intrigue to the story.
