No. I don't want to improve my gaming experience and thus I'm selecting this option because you've pretty much boxed me in to it. I know I don't actually have to select anything anyway but I'm compelled to cast a vote. I know I can go to viewtopic.php?f=31&t=268404 if I really wanted to voice my opinion.

Night Tasarinan!

Cerillium wrote:Tilt, that's nearly as bad as mine. "ah" is ingrained in much of our sentences on top of the odd pronunciation. I've noticed some speakers replace some of our honorifics with it. Tilt-ah rather than Tilt-san. I don't know why. Some do it, some don't. It's also added at the ends of words. Why??? There's bound to be a linguistic reason.

Swith hates it when people mispronounce her name. Everyone does. She answers to it if you call her. She's too shy to correct them. :roll:


Weird. I want to say it's a Chinese influence, but that would sound really Sinocentric of me. Plus we'd put it in front, such as Ah Tilt (阿Tilt) - this is also the source of Swith's "crispy" nickname, by the way. Hmm. This fascinates me.

*le sigh*

Everyone says aut-TREESE. If you click on the little speaker in the Italian box, it gives the pronunciation: this.

Cer, I'm not shy. Americans don't trill their 'r' sounds so it gets under my skin worse than aut-TREESE.


Oh. Yeah. You mean by Italian phonetics. Yeah, I was confused about that when I first saw your name in print. I wondered which way to pronounce it, and then you told me to use the AmE pronunciation.

So really, any mistakes I made are on you. :p

I interpreted that any attack on his that was physical, including arrows and shotguns could be redirected..... but it seems a bit annoying to not be able to punch him....

Paradox is sinister and cleverness is evil. For example...

Swith throws an attack on him knowing he can turn it back. So, she throws a massive attack at him and simultaneously drops a sphere over him. The force of that attack rebounds on the sphere's interior and tears him to shreds as it bounces around.

URL to Character Picture or a few sentences about what they look like: WIP (for if still open)

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

Character Powers/Special Abilities (if any): Force manipulation: For example, if he wanted to and you threw a punch at him, he could turn the force from the punch towards you, and his own force. HOWEVER, he can only reverse force direction and he has to know it's coming. If you punch him from behind and he does not know it's coming, it will cause damage equal to the force of your punch. Can use this for extreme jumping, which gave him his nickname.

Character Weaknesses/Flaws:
Arrogant as hell
No long range abilities
No long range resistance
Things illustrated in power explanation

Character Background: WIP (same as last WIP)

Additional Notes: THIS STILL OPEN?

URL to Apartment Picture: WIP (for if still open)

Link to RP examples: (this MUST be a DIRECT LINK to your IC post in an RP, NOT a link to the RP itself. If you don't have examples, make your biography good.) same WIP

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:

There are many forms of Force Manipulation. It looks like he's capable of Kenetic Energy Manipulation. I'd need to know if he was capable of other forms of force manipulation (cosmic, dark matter, etc.) There are some characters who are capable of dark matter manipulation and, like fat spiders on a web, they'll pick up any changes made and come investigating.

Bear in mind: we already want to kill a few arrogant bastards - Yuri, Yoshi's cousin - so having another arrogant character will just mean the already-circling wolves have a new target. I'm expecting the cousin to die by October (Naomi kill).

As for our current players:
You guys are playing personifications that can only be truly harmed by nation-related issues. You're also playing demigods, vampires, time cops, etc. We give all players a chance. I'll take a look at his RP links when he posts them to see how he runs his game stuff.

I'm playing APB Reloaded anyways. Just got back in, it's a bit of a time-intensive game.

Your Nation's Nickname: Gal

Character Name (can be different than nation name): Michael Manis (a.k.a. Jackrabbit)

Character Background: Michael Manis resided in Manhattan on 74th street. He mostly used hs abilities for showing off in sports or such, but he has been known to fight what are seen by some as villains. He is a member of a group called the Talents (not going to appear). He pretty much gets what he wants when it comes to recreatoion and housing as his parents are nearly millionaires.
Additional Notes: Not really

Michael is known as Jackrabbit. He redirects or stops physical attacks. He is cocky, but not a complete asshole. He is American and from Manhattan.[/quote]




Just physical attacks, nothing else. Bullets might be stopped/redirected, but you would have to be obvious about bring up the gun and shooting at him. His arrogance is mostly just knowing that he dominates most physical tests, so he is cocky. It isn't belief he is a better person.

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.

I've done things like that before. High five for ridiculously time-expensive character creation!

And now, I'm soon for the shower. How late are you all staying up?

Also, NA, I don't know the layout of the city. *bites wristband, laughing* So, I don't know what's near the group.
