Title: The TestDrive RP OOC (Post Characters and Comments here)
Post by: Darth Grievi on October 10, 2009, 01:21:39 pm
The RP itself is here. (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=16705.0)

As I posted in the RP Planning Thread, I feel we need a thread for both newbies and vets to try out new characters and hone their RPing skills. The goal here is to create a place that will allow any character to exist, from mage, to half-alien hybrids, to your Spore Creature, to Joe Average. Thus, plot will be minimal, and the story, if any, will be driven by character interaction. Though there are no official "villains", your character doesn't have to play nice. The more "heroic" characters will likely try to thwart you if you try to make everyone miserable, though, so be warned! :)

Basically, this RP is for you if you...

a) Are relatively new to RPing and want to practice or prove your skill.
b) Have a new character you want to play as a bit before you enter him/her in a more "serious" RP
c) Just want to have some RPing fun without having to slot your character into a certain "ruleset" (steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, spore, etc.) or read a bunch of backstory.

NOTE: This thread also services the Spore RP section. Spore races are allowed, but only as long as they have a thread in the Spore Creation Corner.

Now, on to the rules:

Characters: You can have any character you want in this RP, including Non-humans (cats, dragons, spore races, etc). Just make sure they are able to communicate with the others.

Rules: In general, refer to the General Guidelines for Role Playing at Gaming Steve (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=9398.0). Other than that, you can post multiple characters, but you can only play as one, maybe two at a time. When you are ready to switch characters, please don't leave them hanging. Some suggestions include: passing him/her off onto another player, making him/her a minor character that anyone can control (like a shopkeeper or a guard), killing him/her, or having him/her leave the town.

Setting: Planet Earth, a small town, time period unknown. Strange portals have been opening nearby, rips in the fabric of reality. Occasionally, an intelligent being will be ejected. Sometimes, they remember comming through, sometimes they don't... Either way, the portals and newcomers have scared off the original inhabitants, leaving the town deserted. You are one of these newcomers. Will you try to escape back through the portals? Band together with the others? Or maybe try to rule them all?

Character sheet:

Name: Your character's name. If he/she has a nickname or alias, put them here as well.
Age: Your character's age. If he/she happens to look much older/younger than they actually are, make a note here.
Species: If your character isn't human, please use this section to say what they are.
Bio: Anything important about your character. Post backstory, personality, or anything else you want the other players to know here.
Abilities: List and explain the skills/powers of your character. For any character that isn't perfectly human, such as a superhero, mutant, or a wizard. If your character has no abilities, you can either put "none" or omit the section all together.

The story so far...

The first few characters find themselves in an abandoned town, initially alone and confused. As they explore, they gradually group together to try to figure out why they are here. Many remember what they were doing prior to their teleportation, but a few draw blanks about the event. Some suspect that they were hand-picked, brought here for a reason. They're quite the eclectic group, but they decide to band together for now, which is fortunate, because not all of the town's new inhabitants feel like playing nice...

Besides the main group, two other beings have entered the town. One is an agent native to this timeline, Waverly, and the other is a demon-like being who calls himself Derav (realy by the name of Fenrir). Just as the Newcomers have started to organize themselves and plan for survival, they encounter Derav. He demands that they bow to him, but only a few comply. This is when the agent, Waverly, finally shows himself, dealing with the entity with an air of experience. A skirmish seems inevitable, but Derav dissappears in a column of flame, leaving the Newcomers in peace for now...

Having some time to themselves, the group begins to plan for the night. While Waverly and Schnippendip investigate the house Derav had appeared in, a small group led by Jaden decides to search for a place to sleep for the night. They think they've found it in a two-story house, but soon discover it is a trap laid by Derav. While Jaden and Cain fight off the ambushing zombie hoard, Drara comes to assist. They try their best to help defend the others trapped inside the house...

This is a good idea! I just have no idea what to use...since most of the time I do cat RP's, I'm just going to use a cat...with a secret.

NAME:Featherdream, called Fluffy by her old owners.
AGE:About 8 moons(Months)
BIO/ABILITIES: A seemingly average silver Somali kitten with blue eyes, partially color blind. She has long fur, dark gray markings on her back, face, and tail. Loves the water and the moon, often seen at night. She has no clue how she got her abilities and just roles with the flow. Is very aggressive or shy, as she was hunted in thought of being cursed. She seems to be emotionless at first, but then will change. She often states out random things, such as poems, then unaware she had even spoken. She is smaller than a usual cat, but not kitten sized. She keeps to herself and isn't the most normal person in the world. She often travels in a cloak when in crowded areas and when trying to disguise herself as a person.Usually stands on her hind legs, a real life personification. She can swim quite well and can talk, her voice melodic. She has the skills of any other cat but also some human abilities. She had a special loathe in her heart for random things and will often attack.((You'll find more about her as the story goes along.))
PIC(Just because I don't want to go through trying to make sure everyone knows exactly what she looks like.=3)

Name: Oscar Foxtrot
Age: 30
Bio: In the year 2670, a method of sending, receiving and recording information through time was created. After some preliminary testing, it was decided to attempt to record information about the big bang and the seconds afterward. However it proved too difficult to receive information from before a certain time for a mysterious reason. Some kind of static was messing up any chance of receiving signals.
     This strange phenomenon sparked the curiosity of the researches of the lab. Research into the static eventually revealed it's nature, as some kind of weak point in space-time. It was obvious that research would have to be halted until they could somehow get around the curious static.
     52 years later a method of "slingshotting" a capsule about the size of a coffin was devised. It would be one way and could not be repeated, as the slingshot could only be sent to the moment of the portal's creation in the past. Obviously, a second slingshot would end up occupying the same space as the first.
    Oscar Foxtrot was an AI created specifically for the mission of research into the nature of the portals. It's objectives are to send information back to 2722, and possibly close the portals.
   Oscar appears as a wholly unremarkable man, with no clear memorable physiological traits. Underneath his skin he is a seamless humanoid, coated in a smooth shiny metal.
Abilities:
Robot: Being a robot, Oscar is far more durable than a human, with a photographic memory and an analytical mind.

Technology: Oscar is armed with technology specifically devised to make it's mission easer, but not to interrupt with the flow of time. Non-lethal weaponry, a confusion gun and a host of research tools.

Post by: Darth Grievi on October 10, 2009, 02:26:27 pm
Name: Jaden Talbot (formerly Edgar Talbot)
Age: Unknown, but self-aware for 5 years (looks about middle-aged)
Bio: Due to the highly unlikely string of events leading to his "birth", many suspect that it was pre-planned, likely a deal between a biotech company and Edgar Talbot's wife. No proof has been uncovered though... Somehow, a sample of a parasitic, slime-mold-like organism was able to find its way into Edgar's coffin, whether through a crack or by being purposefully injected. The organism consumed him on a cellular level, replacing his cells with its own. The organism took on his form, and more importantly, his brain structure. While true memories were long gone, the new being inherited his grasp of language, abstract concepts, and the basic functioning of this new body. Its first emotion was panic as it realized it was having difficulty breathing now that it had used up most of the air in the casket. It promptly clawed its way to the surface, and was witnessed by several pedestrians breaking through. Having nearly caused a zombie mass hysteria, the new being, ID'd as Edgar Talbot, was taken to the local hospital for testing.

The Talbot family was called in to confirm the ID, and they did just that. They were joyful at first, but grew increasingly worried when "Edgar" seemed totally unable to recall who they were. The tests that came back then told them that this being wasn't even human, much less their relative. Confused and upset by the family's anguish over loosing Edgar a second time, the new being changed his name, to prevent any further complications.

Several years later, Jaden has lost much of his resemblance to his "father". For one, his facial features have smoothed and become more generalized, now that he has also taken the DNA of several other people. Secondly, since he has not consumed a human in some time, his cells are much truer to his origin: his skin, eyes, and hair (what little is left) are an iridescent black-violet, much like the original sample of parasite. Also because of this, he is slowly loosing fine control over his form, now that the human body plan is slowly being "forgotten"... He tries to interact with humans, but often has difficulty due to his appearance. Because of this, he has become something of a loner.

Abilities:
Resistance: Because his cells are not human and easily mutable, he is able to heal from most injuries. He is also more resistant to damage from blunt forces, such as falling.
Consumption: Due to his nature as a parasite, he is able to directly convert any cells into more of his own. This can be used to kill, heal himself, increase mass, or as fuel.
Fluid Lifeform: Though he must keep his brain intact, he is able to change his form, such as to flow through small spaces, slide under doors, and glide short distances. Though he is technically capable of taking the form of another person, he has not tested this ability.

((Any and all similarities to a certain Alex Mercer are cooincidental, I swear! :D))

EDIT: Because I've noticed that he's slightly overpowered, I'll post up his weaknesses

Weaknesses
Headshot: While he is able to heal from just about any other injury, the one part of his body he can not repair is his brain. An accurate marksman can take him down as easily as any other human target if he's caught unaware. Note that the parasite itself will not die, just the intelligent being of Jaden Talbot. If one was so inclined, one could create another, similar being much the same way as the original was "born".
Ultraviolet Radiation: For unknown reasons, the parasite that composes Jaden's body is unusually susceptible to UV rays. The levels in normal sunlight are not particularly dangerous, just causing a gradual, painless die-off of surface cells (easily repaired by a good "meal"). However, as levels increase, his reaction does so exponentially. Low-level sources such as black-lights and certain types of electrical lights will cause general discomfort and can completely kill him over the course of about a week of constant exposure. High-level sources such as tanning beds and other specialised lights cause intense pain and will kill him in anywhere from a few moments to several hours, depending on intensity.

All right! The RP will officially start once we have a total of five characters (or one week from today, whichever comes first).

Remember though, you can enter at any time, so don't be afraid to start late!

Yeah, it seems fair. This thread can also cater to those planning on spending most of their time in the Spore RP section, rather than having one for each board. I'll add that to the OP.

Name:Xure (pron: ZUR)
Age:20 Vykusi, 17 Earth
Species:Vykusi, F
Bio:To escape the Agents of Wi whilst they were razing Vyku, she and her finding mother fled to Beyon.  Several years later, a rogue Supara vessel had crashed into the city near here home, causing its reactor to go critical.  The explosion made everything go all white around her, but she did not die.  Shapes formed around her, and twisted into the familiar shapes of the Before Time's Wormhole.  While it was going on, she dropped to her knees, and prayed to Om to protect her.  All of a sudden, the twisted shapes elongated into a blink, and she was standing in a field of green grass and some derelict buildings.  At first she thought that a weird time dilation happened, and that she was on a past version Beyon.  She discarded that theory, as the Wormhole did not effect time.  Vyku was her next theory, but the architecture was wrong.  She was bewildered, and then the wormhole's effects caught up with her, and she fainted.
Abilities:Swimming, Confusing Appearance, Small Size (Meter tall from feet to top of the "head"), Personal Super Computer (Standard Issue), Heat Sense (Stalks on the head)
Detractions:Needs Moisture, Completely Tonal Language (only a problem if the PSC is lost), People fear her appearance, Akward Body

Abilities:
Zombie Control/Summoning: Self Explanatory
Lord of Daemons: Fenrir often employs lesser daemons as slaves in battles. Can't let your hands get dirty with blood now can we?

Name:  Augustus Waverly
Age:  47
Species:  Human
Bio:  While only rumors exist about his life prior to his thirties, for the past thirteen odd years Waverly has been quite well known in the right circles.  An attache to the rich, powerful, and morally ambiguous, Waverly has been the right hand man of several infamous tycoons and devout service such as his is much sought after.

He is currently in the employ of Alex Harington.  With the wealthy man's interest piqued by the events in the town, Waverly has been sent to investigate and divine what profit can be made from the event.

Abilities:
The Gentleman's Gentleman:  Well dressed and well mannered to a T, Waverly is nigh impossible to fluster and always one step ahead of his employer's needs.

Resource Management:  With the resources of a multinational corporation at his back, most anything is just a phone call and an airlift away.

Body Guard:  While his other skills are desirable, Waverly would be nearly useless to his clientele if he couldn't defend them.  He is well versed in fire arms and various martial arts.



Decided to throw my hat in the ring.  Is it okay that I used a character native to this time and universe?

Post by: Darth Grievi on October 13, 2009, 07:37:07 am
There's no rules saying you can't. However, I'm not sure I want to tie the town to any one specific time period. However, since your character fits into a broad range of times, he'll work just fine. My only request is that you don't mention "current" events outside of the town, to prevent us from narrowing the time down to a specific year.

Added.

Its your decision. Realy, the portals will never totally shut down, even if we find a way to close them somewhere down the line. That means that you could have a character come in at practically any time with few questions asked. :)

Post by: Darth Grievi on October 13, 2009, 06:21:22 pm
I'd prefer it if you didn't tie him to Star Trek. Some characters may have actually watched the show (including my own). This might lead to more than a few complications. Imagine finding out that the entire world you knew was realy a TV show! :o The only way that could happen is either by cooincidence, multiple universes (but still realy cooincidence), or somehow Gene Rodebury and a few other key players knew "the truth" (ie, they were told by either visions of the future or aliens...)

You can keep him, everything else about his bio is fine. Just replace "starfleet academy" and "the Federation" with some random names (or remove them), and remove the reference to Star Trek.

Besides, I'm sure it would be much more satisfying to play as someone all your own  :)

That's great! If you need any help, just ask here or PM me. I'm sure you'll do great, since you've allready got a storytelling background.

Also...

Since we now have a total of eight characters, I'd suggest holding off on new characters, at least untill we get everyone sorted out in the RP. Its a little chaotic now, since everyone is confused. Just check back in a few days to see if things have clamed down. :)

Yay. I like making posts in this RP. Very unprofessional feel. Like when I RP on ZT2 forums. Thats a good thing.
Title: Re: The TestDrive RP OOC (Post Characters and Comments here)
Post by: Darth Grievi on October 14, 2009, 07:26:20 pm
Well, that's the point. I want this RP to feel as unintimidating as possible, so that people can join and post easily without big worries that they somehow did it "wrong." Tips to improve will be given out, but I'll try to remain as helpful as possible. :)

I was going to suggest we try to get this RP moving a bit faster as well.

I can post in the RP, I just didn't want to spend 3 or 4 hours straight updating my meta game today.

I know! Every time I come to post, DG's all like "No. Wait for [INSERT NAME HERE]. They haven't posted yet." If it was up to me, I'd be posting every other time someone else posted.

While vampires are much stronger and faster then humans, they can not go out into the sunlight.

Appearance: 5'9, pale and slender with dark hair and bright green eyes. Her face is mesmerising with beauty.

Abilities: Vampire by nature: Twice as strong as a human and can move at incredible speeds.
Vampric bite: Can bite in to an enemy draining their blood and instilling a poison.
Phase: Can transform in to a mist like smoke to move through objects and avoid attacks.

Post by: Snork on October 20, 2009, 04:19:58 pm
Name: Drara Mak'rala.

Age: 18 Human Years, 25 Traeponis Years, so lets just say 18. :P

Species: Traeponis (Remember them? No longer a GS Spore race btw)

Gender: Female.

History/Bio: Drara was born into an elite group of Traeponis Soldiers that serve as Outer-Colonary law enforcers and Peace-Keepers (Like from Farscape), that enforce the word of High-Priest Vershuima-Para'doxai IV, as her mother and grand-mother did before her.

Considered to be Rude, Hard-Headed and abrasive, Drara shows little respect for rules and would rather be out shooting things with her Rifle than following her commanders strict orders (Though she has a rabid devotion for her Religion).

She was investigating a possible slave rebellion on an colony world when her cruiser got warped through some bizarre portal and landed not far from the town. She dislikes following Orders from strangers, and is highly distrusting of any other race, or gender for that matter.

Appearance: She resembles a Regular Looking Traeponis, with four thin, spider like legs, and two arms that end in sucker like tubes.

She wears a Gas-mask (As is her races signature) and won't be taking it off until she feels she can trust the others. Her armor and Gas-mask are a black color, typical of her group, with a light-blue ensign in her chest and some other...Alterations.

Abilities: Drara is armed with a Pulse-Pistol that can electrocute most targets, and, if the need arises, she might resort to using her highly-dangerous Acid Rifle (It's low on ammo though, so she will rarely be using it much). She is able to move quickly thanks to her four legs, and her skin allows her to stick onto objects and even other creatures.

That's about it really :) My connection is poor however, so I can't guarantee my activity, but I'll get to starting tomorrow or later. Here's a link to the Traeponis topic so people won't get lost, though I've changed most of the Details of her species.

Hey Kenotai and Pie, feel free to post more we will make sure to include you guys.

Snork i quite your character  :D.
Title: Re: The TestDrive RP OOC (Post Characters and Comments here)
Post by: Darth Grievi on October 22, 2009, 07:17:00 pm
Due to some recent trouble with Kenotai's internet acess, I am moving his character, Xure, to the minor characters bin. From this point forward, we will assume she is simply following along and not dying. You can make light conversation, but do your best to keep her in character, concidering both her personality and species.

Kenotai, if you're reading this, you can pick up again at any point when you can :)

Post by: Darth Grievi on October 31, 2009, 10:29:31 pm
Not to doubble post, but someone has to move here.... Either:

A) Badger posts his response to Jaden/Drara's attacks,
B) Neo/Detox responds to the skirmish (there were gushots people!),
or
C) Someone else mentions being inside the house. (I didn't specify who followed Jaden...)
Title: Re: The TestDrive RP OOC (Post Characters and Comments here)
Post by: Cyst on October 31, 2009, 10:35:45 pm
I'll post.
Title: Re: The TestDrive RP OOC (Post Characters and Comments here)
Post by: Darth Grievi on November 01, 2009, 07:40:38 pm
Added two bits:

Firstly I edited Jaden's bio to explicitly state his weaknesses, since he's seeming a touch overpowered in the RP.

Secondly, I've added a "Story so Far" section to the OP, for anyone who needs to catch up.

I'll probably be updating it as we go along, though I can't say how often... You can't realy schedual these things since the story moves at such an erratic pace.
Title: Re: The TestDrive RP OOC (Post Characters and Comments here)
Post by: Gorman Conall on November 01, 2009, 08:32:24 pm
Every 5 pages might work well.
Title: Re: The TestDrive RP OOC (Post Characters and Comments here)
Post by: Cyst on November 01, 2009, 08:36:08 pm
Maybe 7 pages. 5 pages is too often in my opinion. Especially since if everyone often we could go through 5 pages in three days.
Title: Re: The TestDrive RP OOC (Post Characters and Comments here)
Post by: Gorman Conall on November 01, 2009, 08:38:51 pm
7 might work better since we are page 6 and she already made an update.

However the RP started the 11th and and were only on page 6 now  :P

Title: Re: The TestDrive RP OOC (Post Characters and Comments here)
Post by: Darth Grievi on March 24, 2010, 05:27:09 pm
Well, if anyone else wants back in, I'm here.

Another option, if anyone new wants in, or if most of the older players drop out, is to start a new arc. All we'd have to do is negotiate the outcome of this little skirmish, or start again entirely with new characters. A reboot.
Title: Re: The TestDrive RP OOC (Post Characters and Comments here)
Post by: Gnoll on March 25, 2010, 05:24:54 pm
Yes, I would like in. Please wait while I get the character sheet. I will edit this post with my entry.

EDIT: Name: Nafru "Ilpis" Kafain
Age: 40 Human, 33 Kuuruk
Species: Pentekonterus
Bio: Growing up in the Nation of Kings, he apprenticed under a veteran warrior. He knows every battle tactic in the Pentekonterus repetoir. He is distinguishable from most other Pentekonterus by his recessive grey skin and blue stripes, as opposed to the dominant red skin and yellow stripes.
Abilities: None, except for being an expert in Pentekonterus combat.

You might have to wait a bit until either this conflict ends or we start a new arc/reboot. Otherwise, it looks good :)

Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days.
Unless you're sure you want to reply, please consider starting a new topic.

Yes, I think we should continue with this so I have less free time. Either we can start a new arc or we could restart the universe. Either way, not much changes.
