Postby Terintania » Sun Feb 16, 2014 1:27 pm

The first thing I will clear up is that this RP is NOT based off the Thief games

So, this RP is based in modern days, and you will play as a member in a 'Guild' of thieves. You will be presented with jobs, and you will have to plan accordingly to successfully accomplish them. I will be a sort of overseer. I'll have a character, but they will mainly serve to make sure no one does anything too stupid, or makes any decisions that will get the whole group arrested. They will also be the one to present your characters with jobs.

The jobs will start out small, but as time goes by, they will grow to become more complicated, more dangerous, and much more valuable. Will the Guild make a name for itself? Or will it all end in disaster? This all depends on how well you can plan and work as a team, using everyone's abilities to complete the missions unnoticed. Make a slip-up, and things could go badly. I won't always be there to catch you if that happens.

This RP will be located in a town made up by me. It's neither small, nor large, and contains many targets for a Guild of thieves looking to hit the big time. From houses, to stores, to mansions, to castles, you will have many jobs and many opportunities to make money.

The App: Remove everything withing ( and ) before posting your app
Name:
Nickname: (All the Guild members have Nicknames that they use when on a job, so that if they do happen to be overheard, their real names won't be revealed. Each person's nickname is given by the other Guild members, not self-chosen, so give a reason why they might have earned their particular nickname. Not necessary for new members)
Age: (Something reasonable. Chances are, not many teenagers would have the skill to become a part of the Guild)
How long have they been in the Guild:
Appearance:
Personal Items:
Skills: (Anything they're good at beyond the normal skills required to be a thief)
Position: (What position they have in the guild. This can either be rank, or something such as Tech, or some such. Leader rank will be taken by me)
Bio:
Extras:

Rules:
1. Use proper grammar, punctuation and spelling.
2. No one-liners.
3. No god modding.
4. Listen to the OP (Or any co-ops who might exist in the future)
5. Remember, your characters are only human. Don't go making them do things that don't make any sense for normal human skills.
6. Try to keep it as realistic as possible.
7. Be nice to your fellow RPers.

There seems to be a slight conflict here :P I don't think any human could ever possibly open a vault door by opening it. Beyond that, it looks good.

Something I see wrong with this already, but not really your fault. I should have mentioned that the rules of the guild involve absolutely no killing, so the grenades and knife wouldn't be allowed. Especially the grenades. If he had a different use for the knife, it would be allowed.

But yeah, if he kills someone, tries to kill someone, or even so much and intentionally hurts someone, there's a good chance he'd be kicked out of the guild. Well, if he kills anyone or tries to kill anyone, he'd be kicked out and possibly turned over to the cops. If he intentionally hurts someone, he may or may not be kicked out depending on the exact reason it happened.

Also, in the IC when it comes up (Assuming you change your character to fit), please use proper capitalization.

One last thing. Could you describe 'able to disappear'?

Name: Lilian Mayberry
Nickname: None yet. She's new
Age: 22
Appearance:
ImageImage
Image

Personal Items: Stuff you would probably expect from a thief. Nothing really overly noteworthy.
How long have they been in the Guild: Uh...a couple of minutes?
Skills: Nothing of note yet, since she is new.
Position: Um...new recruit?
Bio: Lilian grew up with her parents, being a perfectly normal girl for a long time up until a point in high school where she got in with some questionable friends, and they got her into things she probably shouldn't have gotten into. This being the habit of stealing, and breaking into places together. They weren't exactly a great group of thieves, though, but she quickly found that she actually...enjoyed the stealing. But one day, all of her friends ended up getting themselves arrested and she was the only one to escape, and ever since then she has dreamed to be a part of a better thief group than her worthless group of friends. Her dream eventually came true at the age of 22.

Even though she has been stealing for a while, and despite being better then her 'friends', she is still pretty average overall. And with exceptions here and there, she hasn't really done a whole lot of stealing since she was a teenager.

If you do that, and it seems fine, accepted.

There's only really two differences, and one doesn't matter for you, since you don't have a nickname yet :P

I know this isn't an RP based on the game Thief as is specified in the OP, but could you have a thief kind of like that? I mean just use a bow and a wide variety of arrows to help with heists.

Name: Kaya
Nickname: Shadow
Age: 24
How long have they been in the Guild: A month.

Personal Items: Lightweight compound bow, lightweight quiver, different arrow types to help with heists, combination of grip and spiked climbing gloves, boots with retractable climbing spikes, lock picks, skin tight rubber suit that's pitch black in color with some leather padding and muffled boots, locket with her parents' faces in it.
Skills: Archery, stealth, and parkour, though with a quiver and bow it's significantly harder.
Position: Thief. (Not sure what the ranks are or what I'd qualify for).
Bio: Kaya grew up poor on the streets of the city, she never really knew her parents and only has her locket to remember them by. She had to steal for every meal and at first always got caught but quickly learned the 'tricks of the trade' or used her slim figure to out maneuver any pursuers. She only has a basic education, not ever having set foot inside a school, but knows her way around a heist. At age 12 she learned from stealing from an archery school that utilizing specialized arrows can allow her to take her thieving from a whole 'nother level. She then stole money and joined the club to learn archery. With the skills that she learned, she quit and uses these skills to pull heists.
About a month ago, she heard that there was a guild of sorts of thieves and she nearly jumped at the chance to join it.
Extras: None.
