The premise is simple.
Your character is your avatar.
They have the same powers, personality etc.
You have to contribute to the plot in some way.
Either by adding to a conversation, fighting, or getting past obstacles (picking locks, hijacking cars etc).
You control your character ONLY.
You can't use other players' characters. UNLESS: the character is plot-necessary, but the player is unable to post (must act in character. If you are in this position, it would help if you asked another player beforehand to take over your character).
No Over-Powered Characters
-Characters can't instant-kill other characters (killing should be pre-decided)
-Characters should be weakened if they attack too often
-Characters shouldn't have too many different combat moves.
And please try to explain powers simply. You may be a genius on your character's universe, but other players mightn't have even HEARD of them before.
Certain players will have certain roles
Every game needs a villain. Therefore, we will need a villain. The villain needs to have a plot vaguely lined out, and should guide the other players (either by accidentally leaving clues, letting them spy on them or even pretending to be a good guy (I'm looking at you, Diablo1099).
Villains (and the good-guys) should be in-character. Jesus shouldn't be causing nuclear war (I don't think you should be RPing as Jesus anyway, but still...) and Freddie Krueger shouldn't be leading the charge against him.
No excessive posts
"Dave opened the door and turned on his torch. He looked around and saw the desk, with the plans on it."
is good enough. We don't need a few paragraphs about his thoughts and feelings, and an accurate description of the room and plans.
This is a strange rule. If your avatar shows a crowd of people, pick one to play as. However;
-You can have a sidekick. Batman has Robin, Sherlock has Watson. Your character can have their Robin.
-You can call in other characters to either add to the plot or help in combat (though try to keep it within the OP rule).
-Your character can have minions. Your character may have a vast network of homeless people, or government agents, or soldiers at their disposal. They should be kept to a strictly 'spy' or 'mook' level. We shouldn't be having a police officer hunting and killing the Big Bad (unless you're RPing a police officer).
One little note:
This RP is probably going to contain at least minor spoilers from character universes, like references to who can live or die in Mass Effect or what happens in the most recent Bourne book or film. Please don't react negatively: it might affect the character in a big way, and you could end up confused as to why the character is acting 'out of character' from your perspective.
But that's not what I want to talk about. USE SPOILER TAGS FOR VIDEOS, PICTURES (Unless they're small) AND LARGE AMOUNTS OF TEXT!
Things you should know
-OOC means Out Of Character. Use this if you want to ask a question or make a suggestion.
-Use @[player name]: to address a character specifically.
OP means over-powered.
-Use italics for thoughts. [*i]text[*/i] without the *
-If a player missed a few pages, please give them a summary (a few lines explaining what you did since their last post).
-If you have to leave, either kill your character or put them On A Bus (give a valid reason for them to leave, ie they fell into a temporary wormhole).
-My word is law. If you think a character is OP, take it up with me. I will make a judgement. I may display bias to certain players; this will most likely be because they were around during We Are Our Avatars I, and I know about this character/player.
Posts MUST Make Sense
-If it isn't from your character's universe, they don't know what it is.
-We're on Earth. Remember that.
-If you break this rule, the nonsensical post is retconned.
Have Fun Guys!
Sherlock Holmes looks around. Hmm. Where is this? England? Maybe. France? No, not enough sunlight. Germany perhaps? What's that? An airport? Flughafen Hamburg? Yes, Germany. he thinks.
A woman wearing an ornate set of polished silver armor rolls out onto the street in front of Sherlock Holmes. Landing on her face, an exasperated sigh could be heard from her helmet as she slowly tried to stand up.
Alastair awoke to find Joel on the floor not breathing. He looked around. "I thought the world was but then how?"
A Blonde man in sunglasses awaited for the clock to ring out the hour, to compete his objective.
T-Virus at a Train Station, can see the headlines now, 'Umbrella involved in Zombie outbreak Wesker thought to him self as he put his coffen cup on his suitcase.
@Jag it's a new world, and none of us remember the previous world.
OOC: Hey guys so here is plot for now till i think of better.
Camreon was in Canada with Carlek. "So Carlek this is the labrynth?" He asked before snapping his fingers and a vision of Alastair and Sherlock and 2 others appeared. "Our victims." He grinned.
OoC: I Like Infinite Stratos too much... Plus this thread needs a few female characters....
Charlotte Dunois sat back in her office in France, sighing. At 26 years of age, she was spearheading the advancement of Infinite Stratos mech armors for France under the Dunois Corporation ever since he father died. Though she never really knew him, he handed her all the rights to the business.
Life just can't get any better huh? she thought.
Deciding to get some fresh air, the former Cadet Representative step out of her office, trying to adjust her eyes to the sun outside.
The woman stood up and brushed dirt off of her armor. She placed her spear into the ground and groaned as she stretched her aching muscles. Where have I managed to end up now? She thought. She was on a street and saw only one other person (Sherlock Holmes) she pointed her spear at him and said, "You there! What is this place?"
Alastair stood up and watched Sofia do the same. Alastair remained shady and hasy of the memory of the past world or nightmare?
"Ma'am, we have a Super sonic jet ready for you for traveling to Germany. Laura Bodewig of the Schwarzer Hase is awaiting for you with treaties."
Charlotte sighed. It had been some time since she had seen Laura.
"Very well... We'll be in Germany rather quickly, won't we?" Charlotte deployed her new IS armor, the Raphael-Revive Custom Mark IV, a 5th generation IS, and took off towards the airport.
Camreon clicked his fingers and ended up next to Sherlock and the woman. Ah a fight? Oh well good guy time "Hello im so sorry i lost my way. Please help me i live in Canada." Camreon pleaded and tried his best not to burst out laughing.
AFTER SOME TIME
Charlotte stepped out of the Supersonic Jet, eyeing the landscape. Seeing no escort, she decided to walk around lazily waiting for the Schwarzer Hase escort to arrive
OOC: I know im making a plot to help but Trilby you know what i want. So im off for bed (DAMN Exams!) So Trilby take over.
Wesker checked his watch as a strange group of people began to show up.
He decided they were not worth his time.
"Hello. You speak English? Good... This is Hamburg airport. In Germany." Sherlock says to the woman. "I take it from your armour that you are either a LARPer or work in some form of acting job."
Charlotte notices a man talking with a woman in strange armor. She decides walk towards them, because heck, why not?
And the woman in question was rather... interesting, her armor and spear being completely out of touch with today's interest in mech armors and new technology
"Germany? What is Germany? And how far is it from Lordran?" The woman asks as she brings her spear back to her side. "I know nothing about this 'LARPer' you speak of, and I am certainly no actor."
Charlotte approaches the group.
"Germany. A country in the center of Europe. Very powerful manufacturer of Infinite Stratos Armors." she pauses for a second.
"Sorry, I haven't introduced myself. Charlotte Dunois, CEO of Dunois Corporation, 3rd leader in the production of the IS Armors." she says, holding out her hand at the mysterious pair
"Interesting... What country is Lordran in?" Sherlock asks, intrigued.
Another woman approaches. "Sherlock Holmes." he says. "What is Infinite Stratos armour?"
The clock hit's 1'o Clock.
Wesker starts to get up and walk pass the group.
Charlotte eyes the mysterious man that passes by, but quickly gets back to Sherlock's question, raising an eyebrow.
"Have you been living under a rock? Infinite Stratos Armor are powered exoskeletons. They are what destabilized the world as this technology was far beyond any military expectations in the centuries to come. They are also the reason why women had started becoming more predominate in the world's politics." She takes out her necklace, which houses the matter transport system that summons the armor.
"Would you like to see one?"
The woman holds out a gauntlet-clad hand and shakes Charlotte's hand. "I am Dalia." she said.
Responding to Sherlock, "Lordran is a country. A country I seek to return to."
The information shocks Sherlock. He turns to the suited man. "Entschuldigen Sie bitte, sprechen Sie Englisch? Wenn nicht, was Datum und Uhrzeit ist das?" he asks. "Date and time?" he repeats in English.
Wesker nears an imcoming Train and drops his suitcase near the waiting bench.
The Cookie Monster poked his head out of the bin ever so slightly. He was scared, because something didn't appear right...this was definately not Sesame Street.
He could hear some people talking nearby but he kept quiet. Perhaps if he ignored them things would go back to normal.
I sit on a bench from afar... wondering whether the strange group of people in front of me are also going to the convention I am dressed for, or if something more sinister is arising...
I decide to lay low and observe... some of them look dangerous, and I am just a man!
Charlotte looks really confused, however she understands Sherlock's question, as Laura did teach her some German.
"It is year 2032, roughly 1 o'clock... Where are you from?"
OoC: To be honest, IS never really did say how long into the future... But it says its relatively close... I based this on a Fanfiction I made for Infinite Stratos
"London, England. 2012. And I think it was rather later than 1pm..." Sherlock replies. Curious... twenty years have passed, and I've travelled to Germany. He rubbed his face. No outward signs of ageing... "My pupils... Are they dilated?"
Charlotte starts shaking her head, utterly confused. How could this man have time-traveled?
"No, they are not... Do you exactly when? Like month and date?"
Wesker sets a timer for 5 minutes and make his exit, going pass the group again.
I don't think any pony has ever flown this far from Equestria. There are so many strange creatures here. They all walk on their hind legs. What was that strange female (I think was a female) doing inside that loud metal dragon? And what is that small group of creatures down there next to that giant building? I guess I should go down and introduce myself.
Edit: Oh look Applebloom, I think I'll go play with her instead.
Applebloom peeks head into room and notices a bunch of crazy people, she decides to quickly make break for Ponyville.
"15th of January... So, I haven't been drugged." Sherlock replies. "YOU! In the suit. What is the date?"
