Still new to hardcore RPing.

Postby Nevrintik » Mon Jul 16, 2018 3:17 pm

Alright. I have an accepted character concept and I am ready to step into a new pair of shoes, but I have no idea where to start. Should I try interacting with other characters? Should I develop interactions with my faction? Or is there something that I'm missing completely?
I really love RPing, but I am still very new to it.

Right now, the Order is in the process of being forcibly recruited by our first true big bad, Bane. I don’t know if you saw, but while the Crimson Thorn (leader of the Order) was out searching for Phantom (His Nemisis) he got the shit bets out of him by Bane. My next post will follow up on that, with Bane appearing in the Order HQ and telling the Order that their leader has been defeated and now he is the leader, or at least the one commanding the leader of the Reapers. If you want to do interaction based on your faction, that’s what’s happening with that. If you want to interact with other people, I’d suggest asking around and seeing if another person wants to interact.
IVE GOT TOOOO MUCH TIME ON MY HANDS!

Seriously I have way too much time to spend on RPs. It’s actually kinda sad.


Also I’m obsessed with JoJos Bizarre Adventure (if you didn’t notice.)

Ya know, those cops probably had kids and Toyman was just offering them toys for the holidays. And here comes Carrie ruining all of that and kicking those poor guys in the balls! Well, I hope Carrie's prepared to tell those sad little kids why they won't be getting any presents for Hanukkah this year. Unless, of course, Carrie saved them a couple of AKs. :lol:

Well, it probably would be closed. But if Coyne went there, I'm sure he might find someone that might help him. ;) To help you set the scene, the place is a wreck, the front doors have been chained but the padlock used to secure it is hanging open. There's the sound of a scuffle from behind the bar, like on the floor behind the counter. Coyne can make his presence known but he shouldn't try and stop whatever's happening behind the bar.

Greater Meme Land wrote:Villain APP:
Name/Alias: Jakob Helsing
Age: Around 2,000 years old (Though physically he’s about 27)
Gender: Male
Appearance:(Image)
Personality: Level-headed, calm, scholarly, and rather eccentric. Having spent over 700 years in some form of hibernation, he is incredibly curious about the world and how it’s changed in the time he’s been gone. He is rather secretive about his past, and generally quite mysterious. He has a kind heart, though, he is quite inconsistent by nature, constant shifting in his moods, intentions, and moral alignment. He is also entirely aware of his vampiric curse, aware of his consistent need of mortal blood in order to survive. This makes him quite the risk to be around, as you can never predict when his thirst becomes too great to resist. Due to the risk he poses, he isolates himself from society to protect the public from the constant blood hunger.
Faction: None
Affiliation: None
Race: Vampire
Backstory: Jakob was born in roughly 18 AD (I know, he’s pretty damn old.), on the island that would come to be England. He was alive during the Roman conquest of the region, and served as a Roman soldier for a short time, before receiving a somewhat crippling knee injury in battle. For a year more, he lived his normal life, a carefree man. And then, came the day his life was forever changed. One night, late into dark, he was assaulted in his own home by an inhuman attacker. The beast bit his neck, and forever more, the carefree young man was no more. He was forcibly changed. He grew long and sharp fangs, his hair turned pure white, his eyes an iridescent red. He was no longer mortal. He was a beast beyond the comprehension of man. He was feared by all, thought to be God incarnate. He took the lives of many in order satisfy a constant hunger. The corpses he left in his wake frightened many. Many tried to kill him, with no success. He lived through the rise and fall of the great Roman Empire in the manner, the rise and fall of kings, the darkest ages of man, the rebirth of society, and thought, and literature. And then one day, he realized it was all for nought. He could never die, and he would outlive all he knew, and kill some for his own survival. He had grown intelligent, and powerful, beyond any mortal, and yet... what was the point of his existence. He could never complete the journey of life, for he could not die. He could never witness the final adventure of man. He could and do everything a man could in several lifetimes, except witness the end of it all. He sunk into a deep, ceaseless depression, collapsing in on himself, refusing to indulge his vampiric hunger. He fell into a hibernation, from which he did come out of for nigh on 600 years. He awoke from his slumber in the early 1900’s. He moved to Gotham from his resting place in London, and started a small retail business just before they start of WWI. He began designing his own clothes and selling them in his store due to the Great Depression that came soon after the war. These clothes became rapidly popular due to lower price and excellent make, and soon he became the prevailing brand in Gotham. As the economy grew, so did his business, and soon his brand spread outward from Gotham, becoming a increasingly popular product across the U.S., and soon to become a global craze. He bought a house in the Gotham countryside, and there he has lived for the past 100 years. He isolated himself from society, leaving his house only once and a while to hunt. He left a business partner in charge of his brand (though he still receives most of the profits he generates), and he has remained within Helsing manor for the past year or so, only ever leaving once or twice a month to hunt his full in the east end of Gotham.
Powers/Weapons/Tech:
Abilities
-Vampiric Capabilities: Jakob has enhanced physical abilities, like speed, strength, physical endurance, durability, reflex speed, hand eye coordination, etc. He can lift 300 lbs, run fast enough to outspeed a motorcycle, shake off the force of being hit by semi trailer truck. In addition to this, he is entirely incapable of dying due to age, and can regenerate damage from wounds inflicted.
-Shapeshifting: Jakob can change his form into various animals he has studied over the centuries. In order to shift into a chosen animal, he must be able to visualize and recall the physiology of what he wants to shift into.
-A massive white wolf
-An albino raven
-White rabbit
-A salamander
-Blood magic: Jakob can cast blood magic, a supernatural energy drawn from mortal blood that allows Jakob to perform multiple abilities. These include:
-Blood talon: Jakob can shoot out spikes of blood red energy at extreme speeds that impale victims.
-Shadow manipulation: Jakob can manipulate his own shadow in order to use it for a variety of long and short ranged attacks, depending on how far the shadow can stretch in a given area with given lighting.
-Blood drain: Consumption of blood gives Jakob strength, as well as allowing him to cast blood magic. He drains blood via his fangs. He can also consume blood after it has left the body, thus why he carries his knives and rapier. Direct consumption of blood does not always lead to death on the part of the mortal.
-Vampirization: Jakob can turn other people into vampires by performing the inverse of the blood drain, injecting his own blood into peoples veins via his fangs.
-Minor psychics abilities: Jakob can erase any memory of himself performing his vampiric acts. He cannot erase memories that do not pertain to him.
-Minor necromancy: Jakob can perform vampirization on corpses, allowing them to come back to life as near mindless zombies for up to 24 hours. These zombies can take orders and are deadly in large groups. They can be killed via decapitation it severe head trauma of any sort, as they do still need their lower brain functions to operate.
Equipment
-Rapier: Jakob always carried an intricately made,thin, double edged edged sword that he uses in combat to draw blood from opponents in order to use blood abilities
-Knives (You know this is a motherfucking JoJo reference): Jakob carries a set of knives in him for long distance attacks.
Weaknesses:
-Blood Hunger: Jakob will die if he goes too long without the consumption of blood, or so he believes.
-Sunlight: Jakob does not die if he enters direct contact with sunlight as people believe vampires do. Instead, it simply weakens him to the point of human standards, taking away his regeneration, durability, strength, speed, etc. He also has an intense phobia of sunlight, or at least being in direct contact with it (this includes UV light as well) as it causes ill symptoms such as coughing up blood, intense nausea, and fatigue.
-Bleeding out: Just like any being, Jakob can die from bleeding out. The mor blood he loses, the less his vampiric abilities have effect.
-Stab through the heart: A direct stab to the heart with any pointed or edged weapon will severely harm Jakob, leaving him incredibly weak, and seemingly disabling his regen, allowing for him to be killed..
-Blood Sickness: Too long without blood, and Jakob will go on a rampage, hunting until he locates a mortal and entirely drains them of blood.
-General Ignorance: Due to having been in some coma for a 700 year time period, and having woken up in the early 1900’s, Jakob is still somewhat ignorant of modern customs and technology.
Skills:
-Scholar: Jakob is a scholar and practioner of many arts. He is an expert in many sciences including biology, chemistry, paleontology, and zoology(thus why he is skilled with his shape shifting). He is also skilled at painting, poetry (and writing in general), speech (writing and reading), and other fine arts.
-Cooking: For not really eating normal food, Jakob is a masterful chef.
-Charisma: Jakob is skilled at convincing people, and has a peculiar way with words that just makes you want to believe him. He is very much a people person.
-Combat: Jakob has spent centuries mastering the art of physical combat, from swords, to knives, to axes, to spears, he can wield practically any weapon without much issue. In addition to this, he has mastered a multitude of unarmed physical combat styles.
RP Examples: I can’t really provide any good RP samples, as I haven’t really been RPing long. Therefore, I’ll write out a sample here if that’s okay
Jakob looked out the window of his manor, and sipped from a piping hot cup of tea. Snow fell in thick sheets in the lawn, coating the trees and the grass and the bushes in a sparkle that was simply dazzling, each little snowflake like a tiny star in a white galaxy. Jakob thought upon he many snowfalls he had seen, too many to count in his lifetime, more than any other living being to be sure. This set Jakob to thought. So long I have been on he face of this earth, far longer than natural. I’ve seen many a person come and many a person go. Many lives I’ve taken to survive myself, and all because why? Because some beast stuck his fangs in me, and made me the beast he was. I question why it must have been me, to be cursed by this, to little avail. Pure unfortunate coincidence? Possibly. He set down his cup on a saucer. Oh well... I suppose there’s no need to senselessly rant to myself, when there is much more I could do with my eternal life. He rose, and left his study, wandering the empty halls of his empty home. He felt a familiar sensation of hunger well within him. It appears I must hunt again...

Extra Information
Day Job: Eccentric billionaire with a heavily successful clothing brand (called BloodroseTM)
Living place: An isolated and rather large manor in Bristol county. About 3/4 the size of Wayne manor.
Voice Actor:Marc Diraison
Likes/Dislikes:
+A good cup of tea
+Pleasant company
+Reading
+Writing
+Painting a good picture
+Snow
-Solitude (though he has isolated himself to protect those around him from his vampiric curse)
-Smoking
-Alcohol
-Unpleasant and rude company
Theme Song: The Fire Emblem soundtrack is amazing.
Did you read the rules? Yes
*Fun fact: Jakob’s original name was not Jakob. It was Callisthenes (Latin for Beautiful and Strong)
*Another, more disturbing fun fact: It’s likely that Jakob has blood ties to more than 25% of the population in Europe due to the many illegitimate children he had with many women of his years.

I'm thinking late Sunday afternoon, early evening. After Bane's speech because the recruitment drive that Raven mentioned in my last post is a reaction to Bane. Penguin's on a hiring binge, trying to shore up his ranks.
