So, I'm gonna go work on my weird airship furry pirate world and than on making an RP for it. Anyone think "Queensland" is too on-the-nose for a nation meant to ape the British Empire?

Aw man, do I have to fight to be the token Zorua? Naw, I'll keep eyes on. It's a bit non-commital in my case mind (my life is a bit upsy-downy atmo, it's hard to know at this moment how much free time I'll have) and a lot of it depends what standard this ends up in.
Leonard L. Leonard

("Leo")

Age
19

DARK Dorm would be my preference.

Appearance:
Leo looks like a ruffian, through and through. He’s tall (6’3”), lanky and skinny. His hair is long, just short of his shoulders, brown and usually tangled. His uniform is usually kept in rags as well, although not unwearable (yet) all of it has noticeable tears and damage he’s never bothered to repair or replace. He has deep blue eyes (which lose their colour when his psychic dueling is in effect) and usually has just a touch of facial hair that he won’t shave off as he should.

Note:
I couldn’t find anywhere this kinda fit in very well - at least not to explain in detail, but it’s an important pillar of the character. Leo is a Psychic Duelist, as they appear in 5Ds, meaning he is able to deal real, physical damage with duel monsters in proportion to the Life Point damage dealt to the player. He does have some grasp on his power, mind. He’s really not likely to seriously hurt anyone unless he invokes particularly powerful monsters (the only time he ever did cause a serious injury was the first time his power manifested. Then, he put a school bully in the hospital, mind) although he has before caused some minor cuts, bruises and burns still. This is part of why he’s at Harmonia - to help him better learn to temper and control his power. He does have a psychic inhibitor - his is a golden-looking earring that curls around the back of his earlobe. (Think like Akiza Izinski's hair accessory in 5Ds. If he takes it off, shit goes *down*.)

Personality:
Leo seems to be the only student at Harmonia who has the astounding ability to seem like he doesn’t even remotely want to be there. This is mostly a half-truth borne out of his homesickness, fear of his own power and ultimately the feeling that amongst Harmonia’s student populace, he feels as if he’s very much alone, even in the largest crowds.

Leo has been demonised by some of the other students - at least the ones who found out one way or another that he is a Psychic Duelist and to an extent he welcomes it, although he’s nowhere near as unfriendly as one might believe - he is unbelievably serious about his Dueling, given both his status and ability but he still tries his best to maintain an indifferent, chilled demeanour otherwise - lest the constant pressure drive him insane of course. He outwardly projects that he’s not interested in making friends, although the truth of it might not be the case.

He has had a few problems integrating into the local culture and has had a tough time learning the local language - although he’s just about competent as spoken, he’s hopeless at reading and writing.

History:
Leo had always been a strange child, but he could never really perceive why. Sure enough he went to an average school in his average hometown of Leicester, got average grades and played Duel Monsters with his friends and siblings, at which he was average. Just about the only abnormal thing about him was his name, which certainly didn’t help a young Leo not get bullied, but wasn’t even remotely enough to justify that feeling of ill belonging. When he got his answer, he immediately wished he had never learnt.

See, one particular brute at the school also played Duel Monsters and he was pretty damned good at it too. This boy, by the name of Alexander had a particular thing against Leo, if only because he wanted Leo’s rarest card, “Sophia, Goddess of Rebirth”. He hounded the young boy for weeks until he put the card up in an ante duel. All seemed normal for the Duel. Alexander pushed Leo into a corner with his abilities but he left too many special monsters on the field, which allowed Leo to summon his precious Sophia with his opponent’s cards. But that’s when it got weird. This was just a duel with cards on a table but.... Sophia appeared and more than that, she attacked Alexander. The result was not pretty. It was one school bully spending the next few weeks in the hospital, half of the school population traumatised from watching and property damage that the school had to claim was an act of a god. Once his powers surfaced, Leo lost his chance at a normal life - and with Duel Britannia, the pre-eminent dueling school in the UK, ill-equipped to handle a Psychic student, he had to board a plane halfway around the world to one that was.

He bade farewell to his family and friends, at least for now but he realised at least one positive of the situation. Once he did arrive at Harmonia, he flourished. Finding out about his power and having the responsibility to control it finally gave Leo the drive he had been lacking for as long as he had. During his first year at the Academy, he was still fairly regular, sometimes threatening the tops of the rankings but only barely - and with his grading continued into his second year, he couldn’t quite break the glass ceiling placed above him by his first year’s grades. But the third year carried a fresh start...

Hell & The Unknown

Leo brought his “Burning Abyss” deck with him, which are far more common in the West, although he has supplemented them now with a series of “Entities” - almost unheard of back home but far more common here in Japan.

Leo’s deck does not feature on raw power, given his distaste for causing harm with Psychic Dueling. Instead, he uses powerful effects like his Viruses to control the field and disable his opponents from getting to their own power cards, or to easily remove them from play once they have hit the field or even to use his opponent’s cards as nothing more than common material. He often presents significant obstacles for the opponent(s) to overcome and rarely fights back from behind himself, although he’s capable of doing so if he needs.

Thank you merrily. ^_^
I only just found out these were a thing lately. But still, in the 2 years I've been away, my tag's acquired a small, but notable change in that I've gone from "Plumbum" to "ThePlumbum" (formatted thusly), so I'd really like to go by the latter, if that's at all possible, please?
I mean, we might as well flip a coin for all the information we have on the matter right now. :/
Sorry I've been away so long guys. I happen to have spent the last half week knocked out by either the flu or something else viral and nasty. I'm (mostly) back in action now though, so normal service should be resumed shortly.

I'll get caught up tomorrow morning and see what's going on and bring in Elena.

The 4 NPC's



<Snipped quote by Plumbum>

*Burning Abyss... isn't broken its just strong, Also fight me for the dark attribute dorm. Fight me I say!*


I appreciate they're not broken completely I just have bad memories from the time when they first came out and I was still attending locals with Heraldic Beasts. Everything is broken when compared with Heraldic Beasts.
Yeah, I mean I wouldn't be personally opposed to Link Monsters but Master Rule 4 is like having to breathe through a gasmask in terms of writing. I may or may not be making my character use Broken Abyss and I may have NPCs that use other decks where it sucks to have MR4 in play (Hello, Ghostricks!) but having to be sure you have the correct arrows in play to go for more than one ED monster is just busybodying I don't need. Imagine if one was trying for like a Sophia play, that would be crazy to try to keep track of already, without having to add Links to the affair as well.

N.B. I am writing a character, I was just at work all day yesterday. Bear with.
I'd personally create a skeleton on something like etherpad/gdocs/whatever (think how duels are summarized on the YGO wiki, if you go look at an episode synopsis) then RP the actual character work as would normally be done PbP so that spectators can still in essence see the duel unfold.

That's my two of the smallest currency denomination.
