Hello all and Welcome to the RP! To start off with the story will mostly be a wild west adventure story but I plan to add some Steampunk elements later on. So if you are interested read the story and make a sheet.

Okay then that should be it. Any questions you may have I'll be happy to answer. Also I won't be taking reserves so if you want to be apart you should make a sheet ASAP.
Edit: I have received help with skype, so I'd like to use that but I shall see what the rest of the group wants to do when I select the members.

Edit: I have created a user group for the RP you can find it Here

Accepted Characters


I'll take a swing at it.

EDIT: I edited the sheet a bit.

Holy shit, this idea is just like the one I'm planning. How did you get in my brain?

Broken Orange:

I have those powers O.O

It came to me yesterday when I was thinking of an idea to post in the RP building thread and I liked the idea the more I thought of it so I made it.

Can you save me a spot? This sounds cool but I am a little busy at the moment.

Viking Incognito:
Can you save me a spot? This sounds cool but I am a little busy at the moment.

I can't save you a spot but I won't begin accepting characters for another week or so. so you have plenty of time.

Edit: If needed I might hold off accepting people if you need more then a weeks time since I'm such a nice guy :P

Just to let people know I will begin accepting characters in about 4-5 days. Just in case you were wondering.


changed the weapon sorry if it is a bit late in the deciding time to do that

I'm very sorry, I was thinking of accepting characters today and getting the story started but something's come up and I won't be able to start this RP until the weekend. Again I apologize but I haven't forgotten about you guys and I will try my best to get this RP started ASAP.

Sorry if I made my sheet a little too late.

29th and only one Accepted Character?
Might actually get in this one...


Ok, still new to this, so let me know if I get in and if not gimme some advice so I might get into another thread.

Diablo1099:
Snips

Well I'm accepting all the characters I want at once on the 29th that way I can take a good look at what the characters people come up with look like. I will be judging on how much I like the character not the quality of the character sheet.

pyroguy86:
Sorry if I made my sheet a little too late.

You made it on time, I won't be accepting characters till somewhere around this time tomorrow. Also as a note the story will start out with us still as humans and then the vision and us turning into half demons happens a little after that. You don't have to change your character sheet though, I like it how it is.

what'ca think?

Diablo1099:
Snips

Sure thing, Since you said you were new to RP's I'll give you my full criticism on your sheet. Note that it won't affect your chances of getting accepted but should help you in the future.

1: Your Bio's a little short. A lot of GM's like around 3 paragraphs in length as a good size. It doesn't bother me because I judge by the character not their backstory, but the backstory does help.

2: He also seems a little overpowered to me, The ability to hit something at a mile away with any weapon is kind of pushing it, if you made it so he was only able to do it with his main weapon then it would be much better. Also If you could add some weaknesses he has like he doesn't do good at shorter distances or is physically weak that would help since you don't want him to come off as a type of person who has no weaknesses.
Edit: Note that you don't have to blatantly say "He's bad at close range" You can drop subtle hints to it such as what I did with my character when I said his weapon had good medium to short range accuracy but bad longer range accuracy. That also works.

Those were my two big things with your sheet. but you shouldn't worry about it since my first sheet was much worse than that and I cringe every time I look at it. Just try to stay away from overpowered characters and the other type of undesirable character traits and you should be good. Also if you haven't already try reading this it's very helpful to get you acquainted with Role Playing. If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them.

YES I KNOW TO SNIP AT LONG LAST

1: Never was any good at loooong winding backstories, why 10 words when you can use 8?
2: Fine I'll limit that to his normal weapons, but seeing as i didn't give him anything else, I think that balances it out, every-one else got much more powerful demon ability (Earth powers, nigh Invicablity,Etc.) while my guy boils down to being a really good shot.
Think of it that way and he seem's kinda underpowered
Thanks for advice and I hope I passed the audition.

Who puts a scope on a pistol besides Fallout New Vegas game developers? Seriously?
I just wanted to say that short comment.

No problem, and I know first hand how hard it is to write a long backstory for someone but GM's usually take those into account when accepting people and there are some who are much harder to please then me and will pick apart peoples sheets. As for the accepting I will quote all the people I take and will tell them that they are in. So just look out for a message in around 15 hrs maybe, really depends on when I finish my opening post.

People who play Fallout New Vegas a lot? 'sides, He's a sniper, why not?

Okay the time has come, I will now pick the characters for the RP.

TheIronRuler:

Welcome!

PrinceOfShapeir:

I also welcome you!

Khedive Rex:

Very nice character sheet. Welcome to the RP

figment of mind:

You're in as well

N_of_the_dead:

I choose you as well

ImSkeletor:

Hi, welcome!

pyroguy86:

I pick you too

Diablo1099:

Welcome, be ready for your first RP ^-^

Okay since I couldn't pick one person to exclude I chose all of you. I will post some notes so please read them over and I will begin work on the Opening Post. you can expect it soon.

Notes

1: The story will start off with us still human and we will act out the beginning part of the story. So please do not act like you are a demon yet.

2: When you want to talk to each other out of character use a spoiler tag and make the title of it OOC. I made an example for those who don't know how to make one.

3: Please read all of my OOC's because I will make maps of the area and tell you guys important information through them.

4: I am open to ideas so if you have one don't be afraid to PM me them and I will take a look at it and make a decision on it.

5: I am the GM and whatever I say goes, I am open to criticisms but do not "demand" I change something as nothing gets on my nerves more than that.

6: I am not a fan of kicking people out so if I find that you are doing something wrong I will PM you what it is I want you to fix. That being said I will kick people out if I deem it necessary.

7: Big one here, NO RACISM!! I know the setting is one that is filled with it but I do not want any racist remarks because the thread could get locked because of it. I will give you one and only one warning if you make a racist remark and I will want you to edit it ASAP. This also includes anything that can be taken as blatantly offensive. If I catch you saying something like this twice I will be forced to kick you out to keep the RP from being locked.

Edit: Forgot one point: We will be writing in third person past tense. Also I won't force you to make your characters talk like a cowboy but if you want them to go right ahead.

Opening Post

All talk out of character goes in OOC tags from this point on

It was a hot day as the group of bounty hunters were heading to the town of Cedar Falls to collect on a bounty. The man at the front was Lance Matthews and he was carrying a sack with something in it. Lance brought his hand up to his face to wipe of the sweat on his face, they had been riding for about two hours in the blistering heat. "Damn it's hot" Lance thought as he brought his hand up to block the sun. Squinting to see in the distance he saw a building in the distance and he deduced that it was most likely Cedar Falls. "Hey guys I see Cedar Falls, lets get there fast I can't stand this heat anymore." Lance announced as he smacked his horse causing it to gallop towards the town.

After about ten minutes of galloping the group made it to the small town. Lance looked around for the sheriffs office and found it at the edge of the town, he tied his horse to one of the posts and hefted the sack off of the horse. "Okay guys I'm going to go collect on the bounty you guys can stay here." Lance said as he walked over to the Sheriffs office. Walking into the sheriffs office he saw that it was pretty worn down and there was a lone prisoner in the cell that glared at him when he walked in, Lance looked over to where the desk was and noticed that the sheriff was sleeping.

"Hey, Dumb ass sheriff! There is a guy here to see you!" The Prisoner shouted at the sleeping sheriff causing the sheriff to wake up. "Shut yer yap! Don't make me execute you, that get you out of my hair forever!" The sheriff snapped back almost unaware of Lance's presence. "And what the hell do you want boy?" The sheriff asked turning his attention to lance, he had a hint of annoyance in his voice. "Well sir, I am here to collect the bounty on Sammy the Snake." Lance responded as he put the sack he was carrying on the ground. "So yer meanin to tell me that you defeated Sammy the Snake's entire crew and then him. Excuse me if I don't believe you." The sheriff responded with a nasty huff. "Well I'd hate to know you would believe me without proof." Lance exclaimed as he threw the sack on the Sheriffs desk.

Lance opened the sack and picked up the item that was inside, it was the severed head of Sammy the Snake. "Believe me now?" Lance asked with a smirk on his face. The sheriff took the head and examined it, after about two minutes of looking at it he threw it back in the sack with a scowl on his face. "Dammit, who would've thought some no name like you would bring him down. Wait a second let me get the money." The sheriff responded in an angry tone. "Heres the bounty of $200, now get yer face out of my sight!" The sheriff said angrily while he threw a stack of money at Lance. "Why thank you kindly." Lance responded after counting the money.

Lance left the Sheriffs office and heard the sheriff and the prisoner arguing on his way back to the group. "Okay guys I got the money." Lance stated as he started to split up the money. "Here's your guys cut of the money, since I have no desire to go back out there for awhile why don't we just rest here for today." Lance said as he handed out each persons cut. "We'll move out tomorrow morning but for today you guys can just enjoy the rest of the day here." Lance stated as he looked at the sun and deduced it was around mid day.

As the group started to split up Lance went over to the saloon and took a seat at the bar. "Hey bartender, a whiskey if you don't mind." Lance said to the bartender as he handed the bartender some money. The bartender handed Lance his drink and he took a sip of the drink. Lance was happy just relaxing like this and sat there enjoying the music that someone was playing from the Piano. Lance noticed some guys playing poker but decided to stay out of it since he was not particularly good at it.

Diablo decided to invest his share in future supply's, the Army nearly got him a few days ago when he was scouting Sammy the Snake's hideout, he couldn't afford to stay idle.
He strolled into the general store and talked to the young child at the till.
"Howdy Mister! what can I do you for?" asked the dirty red-headed child.
"Well young man, I just came across some money and decided to stop in this here fine establishment" he said in a cheery fashion, "your folks around?".
He slowly stared down.
"oh hell, ummm... sorry kid didn't know" (Well this day is off to a great start) he mumbled under his breath
The child looked back up "It's alright Mister, so what I can i get c'ya?" he sighed.
"uhhh... just some food... oh! and ammo..." Diablo said in an embarrassed manner.

[Some time Later]

"That's 15$, Mister" the child said.
Diablo reached into his pocket and found his last fifty.
"Oh god don't make me do this..." He thought.
"Here you can keep the change"
"Gee, Mister, you sure?"
Hell No.
"Yes I am, kiddo, Yes I am"
"Golly, Mister thank you!"
"Anytime, kiddo, anytime" Diablo said on his way out.
Once again, the power of love and compassion has screwed him over again.
Maybe that British fella would cover him for a shot of Whiskey...
Thus he stayed at the saloon waiting on Monty to walk in.

Osmund made his way from the group, money in his pocket, and made his way around town, checking what they had. He eventually decided that the best thing to do would be to get some supplies from the General store, getting tired of trying to hunt for a while and wanting a few days break.

"Maybe i'll listen to the others next time and buy more food than just some jerky...something to fill me up."

He passed by Diablo on the way there, nodding to him as he walked by, and headed in, picking up some ammo for his repeater while inside, some paper too, and some food for the road, mostly some jerked meat, forgeting to get more filling things.

So...now where should he go? He could get a drink but chances were the others were there and he wanted a bit of time to himself for a while. Maybe he could hang out in the casino...nah, he wasn't going to bet away his money this quick, unlike certain others...

In the end, he sat up against the casino, staying out of the sun and watching the town, too tired to act brash for a while.

Samuel walked through the small town and eventually made his way to the gunsmith's. Upon entering he saw a middle aged man standing behind a glass top counter show casing many fine weapons.

"I need some lubricant and cleaning material for my side arms, can also go for new trigger on this one" Samuel said putting one of his revolvers onto the counter top.

The older man nods after putting a small bundle with two tiny bottles, a cloth and some other parts before grabbing a replacement piece from the back. In five minutes Samuel had left the gun smith intent on buying more tobacco and bullets.

Samuel's last step of the day before he would head to the saloon was a quick prayer at the church out of habit.

Samuel sat at a table in the saloon thinking over why he stopped for a prayer staring into his glass.

"Maybe the answer is at the bottom of this glass." Downing it Samuel signals for another.

Viendr woke up to the sound of horses neighing, and the town already awake and going about their business. Viendr looked around his darkened room, and sighed, slowly pushing himself up off the couch he had fallen asleep on, and onto his feet. He wiped the sleep from his eyes and moved over to the window to open it and let the sun flood into his room. He had bought a house a little way away from the actual town, but the area around his house was quickly filled with other houses. Viendr sighed and grabbed another set of clothing, his favorite set actually, a black cloak over darker clothing. He hadn't worn it since his mother had died, but for some reason today seemed like a special day. Viendr slipped the clothing on and walked out his front door, finding himself bathed in sunlight.

Viendr made his way to the town center, walking between the saloon and gun store to get to the main drag. Viendr saw a few faces he didn't know, flashing them a few weird glances as he passed by them.

Probably more bounty hunters... Viendr thought walking over to the church and peeking inside to see an almost empty building with the exception of the priest. He didn't know what he would pray for if he went inside, so instead he turned around and walked back to the gun shop, walking inside to admire the many guns on display.

After about four hours of lounging around in the saloon Lance thought it was a good time to feed the horses. Lance got up and felt a little light headed since he was a little buzzed from the alcohol he had just drank. Walking out of the saloon Lance took a good look around and noticed that the sky was dark and that there were not many people out and about now. "Damn I guess I lost track of time." Lance said softly to himself while walking towards the horses. "Okay fellas it's time to eat." Lance stated pulling out a sack of feed for the horses. Lance began feeding the horses when he started to hear shouting to the right of the town, curious as to what was going on he walked in between the General Store and the bank and saw the sheriff talking to a group of men who he couldn't make out clearly.

"I don't care who you fellas think you are, I'm not gonna let yer kind into the town Ya hear!?" The sheriff shouted angrily as he started to reach for his pistol. The group of men lance finally made out to be Native Americans, but they looked strange to him as if they weren't human but lance thought it must have been the alcohol. The group of native americans just looked at each other and out of nowhere lance heard a shot and the sheriff was launched backwards. "What the hell I didn't see them reach for a weapon." Lance said under his breath as he heard another shot and a bullet hit the ground right in front of him.

Lance jumped backwards a little shocked by what happened, he looked back up to the group and noticed the rest of them now had weapons and they were all pointed at him. "SHIT!" Lance shouted running back behind the general store while bullets hit the ground around him. Lance ran to his horse and grabbed his Rifle as he saw some of his group run out of the different building towards him. "Hey guys we have hostiles! They're over there and there are about ten of em." Lance explained as he loaded his rifle and grabbed some ammo.

Lance took up position at the edge of the general store and spun around the corner and took three shots at the group. He saw that he hit one of them but it didn't look like it affected the guy at all as they kept moving closer to the town. Lance spun back into cover as he heard bullets hit the ground where he was just standing.

Diablo yelled "Aw shit, it not the Army, Is it?!" as he pulled out his rifle and rolled over to the side of the bank. He peered over the the edge and yelled "FUCK SGT. HARTMAN AND FUCK YOU TOO!!."
He took aim and a single shot, square in the head of the one standing in the middle, who recoiled a bit, but stayed standing.
"what in the world?...." he said, unsure of how the unknown figure could survive that.
He took aim for him again, this time for the leg, and shot again, with the same results.
"how the hel-" a shot barely missed him, he retreated back into cover, "FUCK!, WHO ARE THESE GUYS!?"
