Current Two New Contests are now live. Check out The Twelve Labours Series Two as well as The Final Hazard, both in the Writing Contests subforum.


I have been writing as a hobby for around seventeen years now (wow does that make me sound old). I have been a regular member and roleplayer on no less than eight different online forums during that time (including the old RPG), five six of which no longer exist.

I was previously a regular on the Homestuck forums, but I became so sick of thread turnover there that I asked around and eventually found the Guild. Since joining, I have exclusively only participated in Advanced RPs. Before Mahz gave NRPs their own subforum, I used to be an NRP regular in the Advanced Subforum.

If you ask anybody who has written with me in previous RPs, they should tell you that I have a generally open schedule, I post regularly and in a timely fashion, and I never drop an RP once I join unless the thread dies. Some of them may tell you that I have extensive expertise within the realms of Biology, Psychology, and Physics, which I will make no effort to validate since there is no way I can provide hard proof of aforementioned alleged expertise to anybody over the internet (though I am happy to try and answer any questions you send my way).

My favorite fandom is the Myst franchise, which seemingly nobody other than me has ever heard of.

I have been quadruple secret banned from the guild chat. That is not a joke.

In A New Contest? 21 May 2017 5:02 Forum: Writing Contests
I will still also write reviews for various submissions in other contests, if people find them helpful. I did not stop out of convenience or choice, so I still have all the time needed. Look out for those.
My concern with the character would be that of the Semblance ability, not in the way it works but more when they would have the opportunity to use it. It feel somewhat situational as I don't have any human fights really planned out (Mostly Grimm), meaning that it would more likely be used against other players. Do you plan on having some PvP banter with other players, or would this info change your views on what ability you would like?

A reasonable concern - I had not planned on Charis picking many if any fights with the other posters. She is caustic, but not disturbed or a lunatic. That said, I think back upon the RWBY series proper as well as the circumstances described in the OP and cannot help but feel we will be encountering Human foes at some point. If that is not the case I apologize for making the assumption.

I will say that Charis is an adapted character - she has a kind of template which I have adapted to the roleplay, and part of that template includes a Nullifying ability similar to how her semblance currently functions. I carried it over both because it seemed like it might prove helpful on top of being a normal part of her character. Even in light of the fact that we may not be facing any other Humans, I feel it would be best to keep the Semblance as-is. If you feel it would be better for me to change it in order to better synergize with the other characters/the overall theme of the planned encounters/story though, I have no problem doing so.

Your thoughts/verdict?

Edited Charis' profile to include a skill elaborating on her ability to repel and attract Grimm.

Hey I have a question. Been going back and forth with deciding if I wanna be a part of this. I know you had a good amount of interest and only want 3-5 people. Is this first come first serve or merit based acceptance?

Just wondering. I've been wanting to join a RWBY RP since my last one ended.

Listed below will be a topic guide on the details that should be included in the character sheet. I will be selecting sheets based on the quality of the writing; the balance and correlation of their Skills, Weapon and Semblance; and the level of passion for the project. Due to this the "First Come, First Served" expectations don't apply, nor do "Hold my Position".

So you still wanna join? Then show me something that you are proud of!
Posting a character sheet here for your review and approval. I have been watching the interest check since it went up and am glad to see it finally have reached official status. I am open to constructive feedback and suggestions as to changes.

Kael wasn't caught off guard by the transition, not as such...

He just had essentially no options. He maneuvers himself as best as he can to take the shot in the same spot he took the last one, that way the metal would spread the same distance and merely coat metal with more metal, instead of spreading to cover something vital. At least if that worked, he would have access to the solvent now. He memorizes its relative position to him in case it doesn't work...luckily he'd gotten some out of the bottle before.

The last surprise of Kael's life was the revelation that the metallic coating spread across surfaces like a liquid when more of it was added - even if it already appeared to be solid. The cylindrical bolt exploded in a burst of iridescent light, a warm, burning mass of silver pouring across his chest and armors as the already existing mass spread further out, completely encompassing both his arms and enveloping the entirety of his head.

It did not even truly hurt. In fact, although he could no longer even move his arms or head whatsoever, Kael nonetheless felt fine overall.

Until his lunges started to twinge.

The sword landed on the tip of its blade on the ground behind the pavise knight, the impact and strange angle of landing causing the blade to shatter in a storm of deadly shards, peppering the back of the knight's legs. The last trace of Fortune De Worde broken and no more.

The pavise knight glanced at their own feet in confusion as the sun bled back into being once more, the ground becoming recast beneath them for the second time.

"...You waited a third day? Why? They were already-"

Fortune de Vigny's sword shattered into fragments against the ground directly behind the pavise knight. By some twist of chance, a single fragment of the blade shot nearly straight back up from the angle of impact. The pavise knight was wearing even lighter armor than the first opponent the passengers had encountered in New Nemean had been adorned in. Demonstrably just as if not even more physically resilient, but altogether providing less coverage. In particular, the pavise knight lacked any kind of gorget, which had been supplanted by the low-hanging front of the helmet's transparent visor. Which left a single strip of exposed skin just above the helmet's rear lip, obscured from sight but still technically exposed to air, with the chainmail below it ending precisely where the helmet began.

The single fragment of Fortune de Vigny's blade shot straight up into the gap between the helmet and the pavise knight's head, carving a neat and surgical tear into the back of their neck. That alone may not have proven fatal. However, the sudden burst of the remaining fragments across both of the pavise knight's knees surprised the knight, forcing him to reflexively take a single step forward and crane their head to look down, even though none of the fragments could either penetrate his chainmail, or even stagger him from their impact.

The pressure exerted by the pavise knight's indestructible helmet, with the man's final jerking motion, buried the intrusive fragment fully into the back of his neck.

"...Me too?" The pavise knight muttered as he fell, further, and all motor control abandoned him. "Why did I have to-"

He never spoke again.

The cold sun shone upon the scene - the broken allineator, the pavise knight fallen on his face, and Kael's form - arms, head, and chest wholly ensconced in metal.

I hope that even with the changes going on in your life that you're doing alright man. Take care of yourself.


What changes?

There have been no changes in my actual living situation or life. My being forced to abandon The Twelve Labours and The Final Hazard was due to other events, outside the scope of this subforum but within the scope of the actual site, which preclude me from operating as a contest moderator. I am still an active roleplayer.
And that, as they say, as that.

The Iteration cannot deteriorate any further - omission at this point would be instant death. So The Final Hazard, and by extension, The Twelve Labours are now over.

May You All Live On In Song and Story.

...And the world devolved again, the sun vanishing once more just as the pavise knight fired his crossbow. Kael was left hanging in the air as gravity abandoned him and the traction afforded by having his two feet planted on the ground vanished, with little in the way of moving in time to evade the attack.

If he had been expecting the ability to transmit from one place to another to return, he was left disappointed. If he were to recall the epiphany he had discovered upon his initial exploit of the ability, he may have remembered that it was independent from the state of the world itself and tied instead to some aspect of his own being - which the Allineator had somehow altered.

"If you want this to end, return me to where I came from. Tell me how to return, give me a clue of what I was and am supposed to do! Otherwise, I'll fight against the end for as long as I'm alive. No matter how bad things get, the consequences of what could happen can't get enough worse than they are now for me to stop trying to make things better."

"What I wanted..." The pavise knight said as they leveled their crossbow yet again. "Was to use the Allineator for myself once all of you scum were dead. Now even that is denied me. I am a creature of its own nature made - even having lost everything, I will still destroy you."

The crossbow seemed to twitch-
