Hence why I tend to just drop most of my RPs. There's only a few characters that'll get you noticed. Most of them not ones you want to play.

Esternial wrote:Well, time I gave this a shot.


Your NS Nation's Nickname: Esty

Character Name: Joe Quinn Jr.

Character Gender: Male

Character Species (nation personification, human, alien, etc): Human

Character Physical Description (height, weight, apparent age, actual age): Joe is a relatively tall man, towering at approximately 1m90, with a weight of 78kg - give or take. He looks like a man in his thirties and claims he's 34, though he's technically a bit older than five decades. Upon his arrival in Bielefield, he's wearing a grey suit with a charcoal tie.

URL to Character Picture, if any: http://oi58.tinypic.com/2ajvwvn.jpg

Primary Skill or Power: Smoke Manipulation (6): For a reason still unknown to him, Joe has discovered this uncanny ability to manipulate smoke. While initially this was only limited to a few party tricks and earning a quick buck or two from a bet, Joe eventually developed a much greater control of his abilities. Now, Joe can turn his body into smoke itself (or specific parts of his body) into thick black smoke. He can use this ability to avoid injuries by turning his body or the body part being targeted into smoke. As a side-effect, being in smoke form prevents ageing.

Power Weaknesses/Flaws: Aside from converting his own body into smoke, Joe cannot actively produce smoke through non-conventional means. Because of this, he is a heavy smoker. In addition, while his body is converted into densely packed smoke, a very strong gusts of wind can still dissipate it. The less dense the cloud of smoke, the longer it takes for Joe to reform his body or parts of it. Also, while some conventional methods of capturing smoke may not be effective (like a vacuum, the black smoke can escape one of those with little effort), putting the smoke in a pressurized container will prevent Joe from assuming human form.

Secondary Skill or Power: Business acumen (4): Fancy term for "con man". You might've heard of Jordan Belfort and Frank Abagnale, but you surely haven't heard of Joe Quinn. That's because he's good at what he does. He's quick to make powerful friends and a silver-tongued devil in a fancy suit.

Power Weaknesses/Flaws: His cons were stellar back in the day, but nowadays they'd likely be less waterproof, making most of his con schemes useless. Regardless, he's a man who knows how to talk the talk, which still has some value.

Character Background/Biography: Joe Quinn's Sr. was a businessman who focused on earning a living for his family. Though he brought in a good payday, senior was a strict father with big plans for his little boy. Junior's mother was a positive influence throughout his childhood, which was dominated by his father's high expectations. Quinn got into business, just as his father did, but as soon as the old man kicked the bucket he stopped walking between the lines. Call it a much overdue act of defiance. Keeping his practices hidden from his mother and everyone else, he embezzled and scammed himself into a comfortable lifestyle, though a lifestyle he led whilst constantly looking over his shoulder. When he turned 30, he was a rich man with powerful friends and connections that kept him from falling from the top. He had everything to be happy in life; everything but a dame to share it all with. Joe spent a fair amount of time looking for a woman, and he went through quite a few possible candidates with whom he might share the rest of his life with, but he never felt a true connection with any of them. Then he met Delilah. A cheesy name if you ask me, but she was the full package: vibrant personality, smile that could fell a thousand men and legs that drew the eyes of a thousand more. At the age of 34, Joe felt happy. He truly did. That's when it all came tumbling down. The last thing he could remember was just an ordinary day with the love of his life before what seemed like an eternity of darkness followed.

Skip to 2013. The modern age. Nameless stranger finds a strange, pressurised canister in his basement and opens it up. Lid flies into his face and he falls onto the ground as he stares in disbelief at the cloud of black smoke erupting from it before him and assumed the form of a naked man in his thirties. Eyes meet, awkwardness ensues and the smoke man escapes.

Now, almost one year later, Joe is getting more accustomed to the time and his strange powers, and after running his last con in New York (owing the success to his powers) he's caught word of a placed called Bielefield. With plans to pursue a more legitimate career, he travels there with the clothes on his back and a coffer of cash.

Why the character is in Bielefeld/Occupation: Officially unemployed, looking for investments and/or to start a business venture.

URL to Apartment Picture: You mean like this?

Link to RP examples: Most recent IC post.

IMPORTANT:
One paragraph that sums up your character. This paragraph is what we'll use on your player tab on the first page of the thread. This MUST be brief. Your tab will contain a link to your application so people will have full details: Joe is a silver-tongued devil with a charming smile and a face straight from the 1960s. Waking up in present, he's been forced to adapt to the information age and all the dangers that come with it, such as E-cigs. A man in pursuit of his own happiness brings him to a place were he's bound to find something. Whether it's something he's looking for yet remains to seen.

I suppose I should warn you all now that Swith's making me give up smoking next week.

Approved, Esty. Perhaps we can drag Khan back in once he's done ending life as we all know it in Elfen High. (You know, that RP I signed on for and haven't posted for in ages because RL has me by the balls.) I'll add your tab in a few moments. We have various player levels here and a few player-run stories going but nothing official running via me or our insane CoOPs. The best place to start would be the reception desk in the lobby. The only change you'd need to make is the balcony (there aren't any for any of the apartments).

Ah the lobby. It takes on the form of whatever the person feels most resembles a homelike atmosphere. The same goes for the common areas upstairs (communal kitchen, dining room, rec room etc).

There's a library containing mostly weathered romance paperbacks and a few interesting tomes left by residents but it's sadly aging and resembles nothing more than the dusty confines of a seldom-used small town branch library. There are gathering spots within the building, and outside in the back garden, and about town (Chaos Restaurant is a favorite haunt). Smoking is permitted everywhere.

Coolio. I'll get working on a post once I can allocate some time for it.

Also, hello everyone. Never had my name pop up in my "esty" egosearches this much before.

Hi, all! So, anyway:
IRL: Ok. Just had a tornado. Procrastinating on oodles of work.
Copycat: Nick has touched the leg of either Dora, Lillian (least likely as post indicating return does not state that contact occurred) Mr. NoNameGiven, or Torii. He's explained that he McKinsey he books but there is no hurry to get them. Any of you can reply to that post. I apologize first for having taken so long to get said post up and second for not promptly clarifying this.

I just spent a good while laying out a rough plot for a simple mystery event. Should I ask anyone what they think of it?

It's nothing spectacular, but I wanted to do some kind of Clue-style mansion mystery that would be short and not so violent. Maybe it could be a Teen Club thing? Scooby Doo? I would totally redo the plot to involve ghosts if needed :p

I'd love a Scooby Doo style Teen Club event, with maybe MB or Nick as the pet?

Why not have both Nick and MB?

A cat and a rabbit? Sounds like my pets.

I TG'd Min with a rough idea of a plot I was writing. Say, can any of the teens drive? If not, then maybe one or two adults could go, or I could work around that with a taxi.

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination.
