Ok, I got inspired and talked into trying this again but first off I want to know if people would like to give it a try, I'll be using the same stat system as Kalgar's old RP but the storyline will be along the same lines as my old one/Kalgar's old one.

I am limiting what type of characters will be in it though to fantasy, steampunk(think automail) and someone from our world taken there by some strange means, I know that last one sounds cliche Razz

Anyway I will try for 6-8 players only so if you're interested please post here and once enough have expressed interest I will fill you all in further.

Any questions I will try answer quickly as well.


Confirmed Interest
Nagisa-chan
Satsuyumi
Darth Tallis

Darth Tallis, dressed like Clint Eastwood wearing a sarabe, a battered hat, and smoking a cigar, but with panties on his head and high heals, stockings and a tutu. He rides in on a stuffed horse that's wearing a Miku-esque wig with a negi in it's mouth.

Alright. I'm in.

So I have half of the minimum I wanted to start this game so if you guys want to feel free to treat this like the previous discussion threads before the actual RP started and also I should have the basic structure of the opening planned out and we all know how long just the prologue can take Razz

As I have been told by the 3 I have waiting so far they would like the information for creating a character and it is as follows.

To enter the game, a character must be created. PM me a short character bio, including a name, a short backstory, and a physical description and an image if you'd like.
Your character must also have starting stats which are 15 points to start with which you shall distribute amongst your stats with a minimum of a 1 point requirement while not exceeding 5 at least to begin with.

The stats are as follows.

Strength: Physical power
Defense: Physical defensive ability (blocking, first aid etc)
Magic: Magical attack power
Magic Defense: mMgical defensive ability (barriers, healing magic, etc)
Agility: Acrobatics, sheer speed
Charisma: General ability to persuade others

I think I'll do nightly/early morning mods but these may slow to every second night and depends on if all have posted so there's a bit more information for you guys so just send your character in via PM when you're ready.


*Oh and there will be character specific arcs though these may consist of 2 character's stories at once.

*Satsuyumi rolls into the thread and over to Zane, handing in her character, before she rolls over to a corner, setting up a small camp along with marshmallows on a fire.*

And now, I'm going to hang around here until the game starts, feel free to join me if you'd like. Razz

I'm gonna bring Rena back, because I just like that character. I also liked the change I made to her in another RP in which I made her older, more mature, and just a little bit amorous. As a certain person's character found out when I first met her. Razz

I'm also planning to make her a gun toter this time around as well as a thief. Rena with guns... Sounds scary, really. Razz

I suspect there will be much arguing about who is going to steal the invaluable treasures. Razz

Weevil wanders over to the campfire and sits down opposite the ladies. He activates one of his hidden stakes, and points it at Satsuyumi.

Marshmellow, please?

It looked like they could be waiting for a while.

Satsuyumi gave a shrug to Weevil, the newcomer. She sticks a marshmellow onto his stake.

Thar' you go, good sir.

She then goes back to roasting her own over the fire blindly, filling the thread with the smell of deliciousness.



@Nagisa - I do hope there will be some high grade weapons in this rp, it'll be fun to see how our characters use them at least. Razz

Rena swiftly yanks the marshmallow off the weevils stake.

Don't mind if I do, sweety.

Rena slowly sucks on the marshmallow, gazes at Satsuyumi and gives a wink as she gracefully lowers herself next to her.

This game could be starting tonight actually and also the opening is kinda borrowed but that was done on purpose Razz

I also advise you look out for every little shout out as something small might be a clue later on but that is all I'm saying for you guys and most of you are going to wish death on your guide Razz

Rena had taken the marshmellow, winked, then started to sit herself next to Satsuyumi.

Personal space being invaded, escape mode activate!

In a burst of speed, Satssuyumi rushes out of the thread, leaving a large hole in the wall.

A few moments later, a woman walks into the thread through the hole in the wall, gives a glance over to the camp fire then goes and angsts in the corner.

Opening is up and in a way the lack of image benefits a certain character right now Razz

Ezra has a special friend Razz

Oh Gothic please tell me Edwardo can do something with Luc regarding TWO guards Razz

Oh well have fun and also not long and a very special friend will help you all comes with a single request per person if you wish to ask any item he'll gladly offer it to you although that is reliant on your stats for success of a 100% achieved item/request

Sorry it is hard to define what this character can do for you at current but he'll provide some fun Razz

Does Edwardo lose that grin after that outcome? OUCH!

Girly combo was a really good outcome but I wonder how things will play out from here oh and Edwardo I think you should ditch your "partner" and focus on the task at hand not making love Razz

It seems to have slowed?

I am also prepared if Rena tries anything funny and Rena will be in pain if she attempts anything.

Did I miss something? Aren't Edwardo and Luc still in the cell, locked up? How can the guard be on top of Edwardo?

The guards went in the cell, Edwardo made a claim for the keys, and put the guard that's on top of him currently in a bad position, getting killed by the other guard accidentally.

It wasn't just in red text. Razz

Mod before most recent wrote:
But before any could reply their gracious and almighty captain handed over the keys to one of the subordinates whilst he had to catch his breath and so as the two subordinates enter the cell to disrupt Luc and Edwardo
