Synopsis by Thread - Key Events, Settings, Character Origins
Special thanks to Tiltjuice for compiling this stuff!




Attention Players!

This is a gentle and loving reminder: please keep our OOC on topic. We are not Wombat. I urge our players to join TET for play chat.
Thanks guys! You're all awesome!


The Sovereign-State (and City) of Bielefeld. Also, select characters on the BranRiech Tour
  1. 24 April, 2013: Bio/Chem hazards scrubbed. Environment restored. City Planners meet to discuss rebuild. Other nations beginning to send construction materials, etc. (Ideas for structuring in OOC.)
  2. 26 April, 2013: Construction begins on underground areas; utility, roads, railways mapped out by city planners; supplies begin to arrive in tent city proper. It is decided (OOC) that the city will be modern rather than futuristic.
  3. 27 April, 2013: Underground construction completed. Buildings soon to go up. Military base and airport construction starts.
  4. 14 May, 2013: The Residents return to the Building.
The Co-OPS for this RP are Cerillium and Tiltjuice. Their word is law. They function as RP moderators for this thread. If you have a problem with a player that can't be solved via TG, take it to them. They serve as mediators. They have the authority to ask any player to leave for just cause. They also approve applications.
  • Ceril has over twenty years of RP experience. He's served as OP for multiple genre to include 40K, Steampunk, Battle Tech/Mech Warrior, AD&D, and other genre-specific games. He ran "FreeForum" for five years.
  • Tilt has many years experience on NS in various forums. He's served as OP for multiple genre, although most know (and love) him best for the NS RP "Walking Dead".
Apartment Block Nations, go here to figure out your economy. 1 USD = 1 Bielefeld Dollar.
Well, we can start with Torsi's Fascist Ants... and the list can grow from there.




HERE'S HOW TO JOIN

Want to know how to join? Simple. Read the rules, review the Building and Characters Lists, put in your application here.

This is a mixed genre RP which allows you to play things that are near and dear to your heart. Other players may currently have characters that are part of your favorite genre... bear that in mind when you apply. Their establish canon takes priority.

If you sign up and are approved but don't post, your character is dropped from the roster.

We have rules? Well, only a few. They're guidelines, really...

  • HAVE FUN!
  • New characters get an apartment to themselves. You can stay there or eventually find a roomie to share an apartment with.
  • You can play your characters as either serious or light. We're a mixed group.
  • Got a problem with a player? Take it to that player in TG to resolve it.
  • It's a fast-moving thread. It's okay to ask "where is everyone and what happened while I was gone?" in the OOC thread.
  • Please save earth-shattering adventures until the weekends. Earth-shattering would be any side-story that affects the entire house (blowing up the building, planet-wide invasions, world destruction, etc). Minor stuff (zombie attacks, localized plagues, genderbenders, etc) can be ignored by players who are offline.
  • You don't have to play everyday. Play as you can, according to your schedule.
  • What kind of character can I play: We have anthros, velociraptors, gods, demons, angels, cyborgs, robots, magic users and mystical beings, warriors/soldiers/super soldiers, average mortals, A.I.s, thieves, spies, emperors, mad scientists, and whatever Bones and his brothers are. Anime seems to be a big theme, followed by offshoots of various pantheons and fiction.
  • Please don't be a God Mode Sue. We have several powerful characters. They've evolved over time. They will kick your ass if you come in like gangbusters and try to dominate the thread. Look through the character tabs in the post below to gain an understanding of everyone's characters.
  • Please message Swith if you plan to play a god. There are specific guidelines in place to keep things in balance so non-god characters are treated fairly
  • Don't piss the OP off.


New Players: Fill out the short application by clicking "select all" and pasting into a new post. Dabfia will be along shortly to approve it. Most characters hail from their own nation; your character does not have to be the embodiment (personification) of your nation. We need to know: species, a bit of background, what sort of abilities or powers, and reason for moving into the Building. Please refer to these rules if you intend to play a god, demi-god, demon, angel or anything supernatural.

Current Players: You still have to wait for approval if you want to bring a second character in at a later time. Please fill out the form for them so the character can be added to your IC tab. Send a TG to Swith or Cer with the OOC page number. Caveat: if you're playing a god or powerful being, please contact Swith to establish some boundaries to keep things smooth for all players.

This info is used for your character tab on the IC page. KEEP IT BRIEF. We only have only so much space. We reserve the right to deny any application.
Code: Select all
[b]Nation Nickname:[/b]
[b]Character Name (can be different than nation name):[/b]
[b][u]URL[/u] to Character Picture or a few sentences about what they look like:[/b]
[b]Character Background:[/b]
[b]Apartment (full apartment w/kitchen) or Room (glorified dorm room of sorts):
[b]URL to Apartment Picture:[/b]
[b]Link to RP examples:[/b] (this MUST be a DIRECT LINK to your IC post in an RP, NOT a link to the RP itself.)



ABOUT US

We're a fun group that accepts new players all the time.

We have our own Region (The Apartment Block) and a brand new off-site forum that's dedicated to role-playing. You must be a member of our Region to partake in the off-site forum. Our Region does accept *ACTIVE* puppet nations for that purpose.



Thanks, Dab, for creating the whole Personification madness.

~ Love, Swith

CROSSOVER (not the one by John Edwards)


We're looking into doing a crossover with another P2TM group. It would be an encapsulated event on different IC/OOC threads.

REF: Nightkill.
LOCATION: (possibly) Our current dimension/Bielefeld.
DETAILS: planning stages at the moment.

Who can go?
We obviously can't send everyone. Players will be limited to two characters at the most. Characters that are omnipotent must have their powers pulled back, so those currently at half-mast (you know who you are) would need to fly at quarter mast. Many will apply, few will be chosen.

How come?
We're representing PL. I won't recommend any player who can't behave himself IC and OOC. Applicants need to be able to write more than one-liners. They also have to demonstrate that they can follow a busy thread (reading posts that don't belong to their scene).

Who gets chosen?
Interested players will be asked to show us their paces. We'll open up Deux ex Machina. I'll give more details on that later.
Our off-site forum contains a bunch of RP advice. Every tip and trick we have listed there will be brought to the table in this crossover. If you want to participate, you'll need to follow basic RP player guidelines. Break that Wombat habits, peeps. If you can do that, you'll be participating in something awesome:
  1. No omnipotent one-upping bullshittery. If you think you're a badass and you want to showboat your sorry self, PL Co-OPs will send your character home. This isn't a contest to see who the top dog is. The OP is ALWAYS the top dog.
  2. Players will have to read other people's lengthy posts and react to them accordingly without metagaming.
  3. I will NOT allow multi-colored fonts. Period.
  4. No one-liner posts. Even dialog can be expanded upon to include the character's name and some sort of physical reaction.
  5. Punctuation. Nix the *action* asterisks. Thoughts are usually italicized, bold is for grabbing attention, CAPS LOCK BOLD is really really LOUD!
  6. Players may have to wait a while for an IC response. This will be a normal-paced RP thread that may only have one or two posts per player per day.
  7. Every post needs to count towards the overarching story. You'll need to use the OOC thread to actually discuss stuff.
  8. Couples will not be allowed if they can't go an entire day without cooing, simpering, snuggling, shuddering, groaning, grunting or whatever fucking nonsense they do to isolate them from the group. Couples will need to be actively engaged in the story in the crossover thread. Yes, you can have romance while still kicking ass. Our Fade to Black rule will be in use.
Prim: Primordial
Swith: Minerva, Swith
Cer: Klaus, Ogoti

Does building a giant Death-Ray capable of disintigrating the Moon in a suburban backyard without any permits count as illegal?

I'd say its about the same amount of illegalness (I know that isn't a word) as literally bombing the city from space in a very crude attempt to destroy something.

So, what's happened. Also will be making new character.
"Quod Vult, Valde Valt"

Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the V.P. is such a V.I.P., shouldn't we keep the P.C. on the Q.T.? 'Cause if it leaks to the V.C. he could end up M.I.A., and then we'd all be put out in K.P.

Whatever you want Bran. You're in charge of your country. We're in charge of ours. See Swith's post.

But grammatically, your sentence should be "and", not "or"... oh god, it's taking over! I CAN'T STOP IT, ARRRRGHG-HURK!... MEIN FURHER! I CAN VALK!

Also, everything that's happened can't be summed up in the 3 minutes between your posts. Especially when we're all doing other things.
