GUIDELINES:
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Act out your violent fantasies elsewhere. We keep it PG-13 here.
  • Please message Swith Witherwward or Cerillium 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

ACTUAL RULES:
  • HAVE FUN!
  • OP is GOD. Co-OP are GODS.
  • NO godmodding.
  • There will be NO structural changes made to the city without full permission of OP and Co-OP.
  • Citizens of Bielefeld are not there to be spindled, mutilated and torn apart. City officials (to include police and military) are OP/Co-OP NPCs.
The most common topic I encounter during my leisurely crawl through other P2TM threads is:
PL doesn't have a plot!

PLOT
PL does have an over-arching plot that has slowly built over time.
It's an undercurrent rather than an overt objective.
Most players unknowingly contribute to it; some players are fully aware of it.


EVENTS
Our RP is best described as "a series of unfortunate events".
Major Event - affects the entire thread.
Minor Event - only affects the characters that are part of that campaign.


OVERARCHING CONCEPT
Daily life, peeps!

Characters go about their life just as people do IRL.
The problem with life is that SHIT HAPPENS!

We can't always predict when shit will happen.
It sometimes happens at the worst possible time.
When life throws you lemons, make lemonade.
When life throws you Eldritch Abominations and evil forces attempt to invade,
Pull yourself up by the bootstraps and go kick some ass.

You, a Resident or Guest of Bielefeld, partake in all that
Bielefeld has to offer. You have it all, man!
You live in a magical Building own by O.C. Demens
(it's rumored that he's a Greater Being)
Where anything and everything can happen.

Bielefeld itself is a magnet for all sorts of things,
None of it necessarily sensible,
And sits at a crossroads for seemingly everything in the known omniverse.
And everything, dear readers, seems to arrive at that Building.
It's Fate, or Kismet
Or just a black hole with an event horizon orbited by hilarity.


FREEDOM!!!
PL allows you to play any genre that's near and dear to your heart.
You breathe life into that genre, finding balance with other genres
already in place.

PL allows you to play whatever your imagination dreams up
(other than godly beings so powerful that serve little purpose
except to masturbate the player's ego.)

PL's longevity is due to the OP and CoOPs allowing people to be creative
While helping them adapt that creativity to fit in
With the world setting. Players create their own
Smaller stories which intertwine with the bigger picture.
The IC OP is Cerillium. The IC Co-OP are Bone Fort, Swith Witherward, Tiltjuice and Zarkanians.

The OOC OP is Swith Witherward. The OOC Co-OP are Bone Fort, Cerillium, Tiltjuice, and Zarkanians.

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.

Current PL Game Mentors: Giovenith. (PL Game Mentor description here)
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced.

New or inexperienced players are welcomed to join as long as they keep an open mind and desire to improve their skills.

Common sense things for beginners:
We don't use multi-colored or oddly formatted fonts for dialog. We also don't use asterisks to denote action.

P2TM (Portal to the Multiverse) does have Mentors. Please don't hesitate to drop them a telegram if you have questions about RP in general. We're very nice folks: G-Tech Corporation and Nightkill the Emperor and Swith Witherward.
PL is a place where new players can learn the basics of RP. The majority of our members are people looking to advance their skills or to learn more about RP in general. We offer RP workshops on our OSF. Veteran players are always welcome as well.

We provide players with a safe haven. We have minors ergo our IC and OOC are kept PG-13.

We are a diverse group comprised of agnostics, atheists, Buddhists, Christians and other faiths. People of all sexual orientations and gender associations are at home here. We have members from all political affiliations and ideologies. We have mixed ethnicity as well as minorities. We respect each other and we respect each person's right to hold their beliefs. We are the family.
We have our own Region (The Apartment Block) and an 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.



HERE'S HOW TO JOIN

Want to know how to join? Simple. Read the rules. Look at the data on this page and the first page of the IC. Submit an 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 established canon takes priority.

If you sign up and are approved but don't post, your character is dropped from the roster.
    Aperture Science, Inc.
    Cthulhu
    Cyborgs (40K themed)
    Cyborgs (Drones, somewhat like Borg)
    Judeo-Christian Pantheon
    MLP:FIM
    Star Wars
    Time Cops (including Chronos and Fate)
    Vampires
    Velociraptors
    Vikings (Norse)
    Warhammer 40K

Gods/Demons run by current players or OPs: Beelzebub, Pride, Envy, Wrath, Loki, the five Chaos gods, Anubis, Satan, Elohim (Christian God).
IMPORTANT
PL is not a "superheroes" game. It's not a "gods" game. It's a game about daily life. There needs to be balance because mortal/average characters are just as important as everyone else. Characters are given 12 points to spend in whatever attributes, skills or powers they want. No more than 8 points can be spent in a singe skill. 0 points spent means the person is average.INFO. Powers MUST be balanced by a related flaw.

Character Physical Attributes
INTelligence: How smart you are. How quickly you grasp on to new ideas and concepts.
DEXterity: How nimble you are. How quick are your reflexes or your sense of balance.
ENDurance: How long can you go before resting? Your stamina.
STRength: How strong are you.
PERCeption: How much do you notice?

Balance: High strength doesn't mean agility when carrying large objects. The body is still subject to broken bones, torn muscles unless points are spent countering it.
*note: some species automatically have points in these skills. Contact the OP for details.

Character Unique Skills
Unique skills are what set the character apart from the mundane. Is he a master swordsman? Is she an excellent pilot? Does he speak multiple languages? Is she excellent at diplomacy or negotiations? Unique skills such as languages, piloting, master swordsman do not cost points if they are something a normal person would have if they applied themselves to learn. That's why they're LEARNED SKILLS.

Powers
These are the things that set someone apart from a normal mortal character: time manipulation, ESP, forming fireballs, healing, telepathy, magic use (mage, necromancer etc), resistance to toxins, odd physical powers (nocturnal vision, heightened smell, ability to become a werecreature) and so on... all powers that normal mortal characters don't have. This includes "mana manipulation" for spell castors.

Character example: Ninja.
Ninjutsu (skill): 6
Dexterity (physical trait): 4
Endurance (physical trait): 2

Character example: Necromancer
Necromancy (skill): 5 - this is his knowledge of the subject
Reanimation (power): 4 - this is his ability to use magic and his specialty
Endurance (physical trait): 3 - this is good to have if he's casting complex spells that need extra effort
Flaw: corpses may turn on necromancer, character is left feeling drained after major spell used - this is what keeps him from reanimating things for shits and giggles.

Character example: Bat Boy (anthropomorphic bat)
Skills: none
Dexterity: 6
Endurance: 4
Strength: 2
Flaw: webbed fingers make grasping some items difficult,
OP adds to application for free: Flight.

If in doubt, send Swith Witherward a TG.
Power Scale
In an effort to even things out, characters with powers/magic are allotted 12 (twelve) points to spread through whatever powers they desire. A listing can be found here. A more in-depth guide to what some powers are can be found here. You can not have more than 8 in any one power. You don't have to use all your points. You don't have to have a character with any powers at all, if you so wish.

Power Equivalence Levels (borrowed from Nightkill and adapted)
Note: having the power level and being trained well enough to use it are two different things. Goku trained his ass off. Airbenders needed time to learn how to bend.
    0 – No Powers
    None. Nothing. Not even the potential. You're average. You might even be below average.

    1 – Whoopty Doo
    Magic: We're not impressed. Maybe you have a better sense of smell, or can heal a zit if you focus hard enough. You might be able to set things on fire with a lot of effort but, honesty, it would be quicker to use matches. Your power sucks hind tit.
    Physical: Yeah, you can run a marathon just like all the other physically conditioned mortals in the world.
    Skill: what? You want a gold star for having this level of knowledge?

    2 – Meh
    Magic: You call this a power? It's very low-tier. You might be able to slowly regenerate, teleport yourself a little bit, do some decent shapeshifting, or maybe actually create more than a match-head of fire. Still not that impressive, to be honest.
    Physical: You can run a marathon. You'll still end up with bleeding, chafed nipples at the end.
    Skill: You have a basic knowledge of the subject. Pizza Maker Level 2 means you can make the pizza without looking at the pictures above your station to see what goes on it.

    3 – Low Superhuman
    Magic: This is decent. Maybe you can launch a hadouken every once in a while. Your power is still "enhhhh".
    Physical: Your dexterity lets you load a magazine quickly. You can compete in Weightlifting in the Olympics, and might actually win the Bronze. It'll wear you out afterwards.
    Skill: Meh. Commercial airline pilot. You won't be landing a plane on the Hudson.

    4 – Below Average Superhuman
    Magic: Alright, this is your average magic user. Think an average demon's fire power (assuming we're talking about demons that have this type of power). You can manipulate at higher rates, produce stronger attacks, stuff like that. If you have a healing power, you should be able to heal most minor injuries in thirty seconds, and major in minutes (Cannot start regenerating until damage has stopped, AKA if you’re being burnt or electrocuted you can’t begin the regeneration process until you are no longer being attacked.). Things like regenerating a lost limb would still take almost a day and would be impossible in a battle. At this point, you might be able to do a bit of illusionist-type stuff, perhaps a little bit of transfiguration, pretty decent shapeshifting, okay elemental powers, stuff like that. You're a bit lower than the average wizard.
    Physical: Your keen eyesight allows you to hit targets at a distance without a scope. Your Endurance lets you run a distance without tiring quickly. Four points in Dexterity lets you move quickly.
    Skill: You can land that plane on the Hudson and know how to properly fill out the forms afterwards. You're a damn good sniper. Your smart enough to work spells out of your magic book. (AH! Yes, wizards need points in knowledge!)

    5 – Average Superhuman
    Magic: Alright, this is a pretty damn impressive power. You can shoot fireballs out of your hands, teleport a pretty decent distance, control elements pretty well (think like, one of the better benders in Avatar, because there isn't really a better way to describe it), things like that. Your power probably won't be too useful against higher-tier supernaturals, but you can slice through your basic human/demon/angel pretty quickly. You can summon a demon - you need a means to contain it because he'll kill you if he gets a chance.
    Physical: Not bad! You could jump onto a second story balcony from the ground floor.
    Skill: Very impressive. You can man a Gundam. However, you' need at least a 4 in Dexterity to fly it well. You have a bunch of spells memorized from your spell book. You can easily identify types of demons.

-Paradox Danger begins here for non-physical powers/skills-
Paradox is that nifty thing your OP keeps track of. The more you use a power in one situation to alter reality, manipulate things, fuck with atoms, tweak dimensions, etc the higher your paradox number goes. Too high? POOF. It's like building up a static charge. Paradox dissipates over time. There are ways to wick away paradox but you'd need to be fairly powerful to do so. An example, for those who remember it, was Ogoti's shield over the restaurant during the Drone final assault. He dealt with Paradox by dying and rapidly reanimating. Three skills used, all were at a 12.) Paradox may also manifest itself in an unintentional result. Healing a large group for a sustained amount of time? You might find your patient's body suddenly and uncontrollably mutating into a hideous blob. Paradox does not apply to physical traits or skills.

    6 – Above Average Superhuman
    Magic: You are a damn good wizard. If your power is healing, you have an amazing healing rate. Your hand is gone? Pfft, that's not a problem. It's back within a minute. Most higher-skilled wizards/supernaturals have this type of power. Your power is dangerous. You might even be able to project, reanimate, etc...your power is pretty decent.
    Physical: You're pretty good. You can lift a car. You might be able to dodge a single bullet. You'll need points in endurance for that car, and points in dexterity for that bullet.
    Skills: Wicked! Aragorn can track the orcs at a dead run. You can fashion your own spells.

    7 – High Superhuman
    Magic: You're better than your average wizard, but you aren't, like, godly. Your shit's impressive, though. You can summon a demon and maintain a bit of control over him. He'll still kill you if you give him a chance.
    Physical: Remember that car? You'll be able to throw it.
    Skills: You're ready to take on apprentices, if you're a wizard. You can calculate complex mathematical formulas and understand the principles behind them.

    8 - Master Superhuman
    Teleport is easy for you. Group teleport is a cinch. You can rip holes in dimensions/universe with ease. Energy manipulation? Think along the lines of the Avatar - you can do some seriously awesome shit. You could probably make a tornado if you wanted. No, screw that, it would be easy for somebody like you. However, the cost is high. Ripping holes in dimensions would occur a fuckton of paradox. Chances are good that paradox will rip a hole through you right afterwards. Use your powers at full strength very wisely. Very wisely. All things in moderation.
    Physical: you can lift that battleship or airplane that's just landed on your friend. You can dodge multiple bullets if you blow the rest of your points in dexterity.
    Skills: You're Hawking.

    9 - Someone's feeling a little demigodly
    Magic: No one operates at this level except OP/CoOP characters and one grandfathered character. You can summon a demon and bend the motherfucker to your will. You can fashion paper birds and use them as deadly weapons. You can breathe life into a golem and it functions independently of your will.
    Physical: You can throw that battleship at your foe.

    10 - Kamehameha!
    Magic: You can fuck with time. You can fuck with the laws of physics.
    Physical: throw that battleship at your foe!

    11 - Fuck Yeah!
    Magic: You're a god. You fashion demons.
    Physical: lifting a skyscraper size structures and being capable of moving mountainous figures at top strength. You probably have other powers to support this.

    12 - Chaos God

But that's tempered by limitations:
  • - Balance, gravity, and mass still affect the user.
  • - Users are still susceptible to Newton's Three Laws of Motion.
  • - Having one power doesn't mean having all powers. Strength does not equal durability. If a user were to attempt to lift something extremely heavy over their head, their bones and joints could snap.
  • - May damage environment/other people without meaning or noticing.
  • - There may be a limit to how strong a user can become before it's dangerous for themselves to use. (Ex: Gentle.)
  • - May be limited to certain limbs.
  • - May land the user in serious trouble, such as telepathically "reading" a Daemon will result in succumbing to the Daemon's will/insanity, etc.

That's where other powers come in to assist the character. Structure Weakening, for example, allows for a bit less effort (and lessons risk of injury for larger structures). Enhanced Durability allows the character to pick some things up without bones snapping.[/box]

Flaws
These aren't social traits (antisocial, bitchy, alcoholic). Flaws apply to your power. Superman has his kryptonite. Kei is easily winded after using her magic, and may grow weary in the middle of battle. Blythe the Succubus becomes more feral and may lose control of herself mid-battle. Flaws are built in to give balance to a character. Even the gods have flaws. The flaws tie in to paradox. ALL powers which are NOT physical are prone to paradox.
New Players: Fill out the short application by clicking "select all" and pasting into a new post. Cer will be along shortly to approve it. OP has final say on applications.

Some 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. Do not sign up to play a god or god-like being without first talking with Swith Witherward.

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 link.

Returning Players: This RP is much different that PL Classic. It's evolved. There's an OP and game structure.

APPLICATION
This info is used for your character tab on the IC page. Give us URLs to pictures. We don't want the actual picture posted here. Your "Nation nickname" is what you (the player) want your tab to read. It needs to reflect your nation name. This is what readers click on when they want to know more about your characters. Do not put your own nickname here. (Example... my nation nickname is Swith and not Fractal Hacker.)

Do NOT change or add anything to the formatting in the application, please. It pisses me off because then I have to take out all your fancy coding when I work my own coding magic. Spoilers aren't necessary.

If you don't have any RP examples from prior games, make your character's bio very good so we can see your writing style and creativity.

We reserve the right to deny any application.

Vital Information - Cast

Postby Swith Witherward » Sat Nov 02, 2013 8:51 pm

Dramatis Personæ
Image

Abel Lee a.k.a Iridescent
Abel has a really calm and cool attitude. No matter in what kind of situation he is in, he will always have that care-free, tardy, "go with the flow" kind of behaviour. But make no mistake. Abel often does this to trick his opponents and make them underestimate his true skills & value. From day one he would have already carefully cross-examined & analysed his new friends, allies & rivals......figuring out multiple different possible ways to counter them emotionally and physically should he face them in a battle/challenge. Abel never really shows his true weaknesses and feelings to anybody. Although he might seem really friendly, shy and awkward around people, he is in-fact really apathetic to their lives and problems. Yes he is honestly a dependable character who would always remain loyal and and faithful to his 'friends' & family. But..........when the greater good is concerned, he would never hesitate to stab them in the back or sacrifice them to eliminate a major threat. Full Details.


Ayumi
Shy, gentle and really bashful, Ayumi is the perfect example of a pure virgin girl who is somewhat new to the ways of the cruel and modern world. She doesn't know how to properly react to compliments and sarcasm and often hides behind Abel like a timid 8 year old kid when meeting new people. But do not underestimate her to be a very weak and easy-to-beat opponent during a battle. Her character and personality totally changes during a fight and she becomes very serious, solemn and focused. Full Details.
Raka Rahmandi
Raka Rahmandi was a Densus 88 officer, 30 years old, trained and hardened in a few clashes with terrorists. He's relatively friendly to people, except with a bit of schizoprenic, although he does have some hostility with the ones of Jewish, since he's a faithful follower of Muslim. Other than that, he's perfectly fine. Full Details.
Bones
[UNAUTHORIZED - ACCESS DENIED] They do have a lovely apartment, however. Full details.

Totenkopf
[UNAUTHORIZED - ACCESS DENIED] Full details.

Herr Doktor
[UNAUTHORIZED - ACCESS DENIED] Full details.

Eva
Naomi's adopted daughter. Back story here and here. Her hair is black and she has odd glyphs on her face and arms.
Branson "Bran" Nikanor
A Branriech Airforce mechanic who was born in the Capitol city in 1988, a few years before the collapse of the Soviet Union. He grew up most of his childhood with his sister until the Branriech Civil War, he was also one of the first generation of young boys conscripted into the reformed military at age 15. After a few years of distinguishing himself as an exemplary mechanic, he was eventually marked for death by the current High General. He escaped through an experimental teleporter and ended up in the Fallout shelter of the apartment. He married Amaryllis Volkova (Now Nikanorova) in the winter of 2012, and is now the father of Rachelle and Tolya. He runs a Non-Lethal weapons company in the city, providing non lethal solutions to cut down on needless deaths. Full details.

Amaryllis "Rylli" Nikanorova
Born in 1989, Rylli grew up in a rural village. Her father was killed in the Soviet-Afghan conflict and her mother was killed in an auto crash a year later. Rylli then lived with her older brother who was shot down and killed in an Airforce skirmish. Having no other family, Rylli joined the Branriech Airforce and was trained as a Fighter pilot, she met Bran and fell in love with him her first year of flying. She would later defect from the Branriech and has taken up residence with Bran. She has since been kidnapped by the drone empire where she took in Rachelle Baines, a child who's parents were both killed by the drones. She has married Branson Nikanor and then became pregnant with Tolya, who was born in the summer of 2013. Full details.

Natiya Nikanor (on left, in link)
Bran's older sister was born in 1986. She was nearly conscripted into the Branriech Military along with Bran, but a quick descision from their parents saved Natiya from what would have been frontline service. They sent her to America just before their untimely demise at the hands of a firing squad, she went to college for a few years riding on the Nikanor's vast fortune before dropping out and joining a PMC before quitting that too. Now she leads a quiet life in the upper floor of the apartment. She currently lives with Aleki, although she barely sees him anymore, either just because of timing, or other causes. Full details.

Rachelle Baines
Born in 2006, Rachelle and her family were captured by the Drone Empire. During testing, her mother was presumed killed while her father protected her afterwards. During Rylli's escape, Rachelle and her father tagged along while all the other subjects were gunned down behind them. As the trio was making their way to salvation, D4 killed Rachelle's father in a fit of rage, leaving Rylli and Rachelle to board the shuttle and escape back to Earth.

In small doses, they came out from time to time, and some day they would all break free, in one great nervous breakdown that who knows what it will cause.

Vital Information - Sovereign-State and City of Bielefeld

Postby Swith Witherward » Sat Nov 02, 2013 8:54 pm

Image

The Sovereign-State of Bielefeld

Bielefeld has its own government as well as a city government and stands independent much like Monaco.

The City of Bielefeld

The City of Bielefeld was constructed after the third Drone invasion devastated the old city (Vaffelhelm).
Image
  1. Location of Building. It's bordered by the woods and near the ocean. There are parks and schools, a bank, and a small pizza joint nearby. Neil and Gretta's house sits next door.
  2. Market Strip District (aka The Strip or Market District) - upscale and multicultural, with a fine arts gallery and various top-of-the-line stores.
  3. Industrial District - location of most of the industry. This area has docks, is near the airport and is the access point for the small yacht club's island. The river is a working river for shipping trade inland.
  4. Cerillium hill. Bielefled Observatory is located there.
  5. Bielefeld International Airport.
  6. Bielefeld State Park. Good spot for relaxing.
  7. Lake Pearlelei
  8. Agricultural district. Foods Conglomerate can be found here.
  9. Bielefeld Military Installation. Contains barracks and the sub base. The airfield and training centers, and other installations, are not on this portion of the map. It is off limits to civilians.
  10. Primordials' coral reef.
  11. Vaffelhelm ruins. Wasteland. A land barrier prevents the curious from entering. It is still smoldering, and the undercity contains many of the deadly traps that Chaos hasn't bothered to remove. There are rumors that the cultists use it as a playground.
  12. Downtown. The Catholic Cathedral, financial institutions, and other major businesses are located within. The seat of the government and city hall sit in the heart of it. Museums, theatres, fine arts galleries, zoo and aquarium.

Waitstaff are all NPCs (demons, succubi, incubi, etc) in human disguise. Staff include a Head Chef (Cuisine) as well as a bartender (Superbia). The building is indestructible given that it's in its own little pocket universe. It's a neutral zone; magic and combat inside is not allowed. Description here.
Sometimes seen, but often not, these provide delivery service to the Building. They also provide deliverymen who end up eaten by certain residents.
Owned by Pryfyn, this shop contains various droids (mainly military) which are designed and created on site.

The ACF, or Aksarben Containment Foundation, is an ultra-secret organization under the direct control of the Aksarben government. No one besides the Royal Family, the members of the organization, and the uppermost levels of government know of it's existence. It's purpose is to contain and/or destroy things that would go against understood physics and things that have extremely anomalous properties. They begun transporting some of those objects to the Earth that the Apartment exists on, using a secure containment facility underneath their fronts in that universe, the Foods Conglomerate of Aksarben. That includes both their farming complex, and their HQ within the city itself.
An odd shop where mysterious things can be found and bought (or sold). Some items are cursed. Some items are bizarre. Some items are just regular household items. Located in the Market District near Mama Toussaint's, it is NPC'd by Cerillium.

A small board sits on the door right above the sign listing the operating hours of the store, which held chalk writing that listed recent additions to the store's supply. Details
Run by Marie-Claire Toussaint, a "voodoo" seer. "Sometimes I see things beyond sight. Sometimes I see only de heart. I know where you go and where you come from." The glass window outside the shop appears caked with smoke. The main room is always cast in warm light, and scarves shroud tables and lamps. Everything seems to be shades of red, or shades of black, but other colors find their way in and stand out in sharp contrast like dandelions on a manicured lawn. The thick smell of incense and spices hangs in the air. Small rodent and cat skulls and beads hang in garlands from the ceiling and doorways, and festoon table tops. The shop is only open for business when Swith is online. It is located in the Market District.

Vital Information - The Building on Subabsurdus Street

Postby Swith Witherward » Sat Nov 02, 2013 9:00 pm

The Building
42nd Subabsurdus Street, Bielefeld
Image

Current location of our madness. All characters (except the Raptors) live here.

It's bigger on the inside than on the outside and it seems to heal itself. The interior construction appears differently to each resident (tile vs wood floors vs carpet, metal staircases vs concrete vs wood) etc. Rent is paid via a small box in the lobby (near the reception desk). No one knows where your envelope goes once you slip it into the box. The landlord, O.C. Demens, hardly ever makes an appearance. New tenants will usually find their contract and a key at the reception desk.

Common Areas
This is where everybody seems to flock, including those with apartments that have kitchens. Breakfast is usually waffles and omelets.
A full description can be found here. It's right off the communal dining room and kitchen, on the opposite side of the hall and easy to reach once someone came up the stairs from the lobby. The furniture was appropriated from a warehouse store, the decor came from various portals, and the massive 90" Aquos LED TV was affixed to the wall in a fashion that didn't permit it to be stolen (or stolen back by the cultist that Naomi had borrowed it from.) There was a piano, plenty of leather couches, an extra table for workspace, comfy leather chairs and a bar area. (Residents would need to provide their own booze.) A smaller tv is on other side of the room for game consoles.
These are the front and back yards. Used for Zalgofests, combat, snowball fighs and who knows what else. It has a shed in the back which most residents avoid for good reason.
Recently discovered by NVE, the gym is off the lobby on the first floor. It's a communal area where people can work out. There's an indoor pool, spa and steam room.
Hallways. People roam them. Some people lurk in them. They have shadows to hide in.
It has books. Donate some.
Ground floor when you first enter the building. It has mailboxes by the front door (we never see the mailman but there's mail), a check in desk, a bench, an alcove with a payphone booth. It leads upstairs to the communal kitchen/dining room and rooms.
There is an in-ground outdoor pool located in the backyard for summer fun as well as an in-ground indoor pool inside. The entrance for this pool is on the first floor.
It's a roof. It's at the top of the building. It's used for gazing at the night sky, defending the building (weapons seem to change at the drop of a hat), housing Bran's helicopter, and a quiet place to drink. Stairs lead up to it from the inside.
Image




Not So Common Areas and Other Information
Rooms: Some residents are cheap bastards and only rent rooms. They use the communal dining room and kitchen for their meals.

Apartments: Units that have full kitchens, bedrooms, and living space.
Cunning residents build secret labs in all sorts of odd places. They really aren't secret since everyone knows about them.
For whatever ungodly reason, some residents utilize tunnels and air vents to get around. Expect them to drop in anywhere at any time.
Some apartments exist in their own little universe and can not be penetrated by outside sources. These would include Bones & Co's apartment, and The Chaos Dimension (security system begins at the stairwell entrance door in the lobby). Don't try. You'll only become frustrated... or die.
Things your characters would know since they live in the building...

The Chaos Restaurant is heavily protected. The outer appearance is just a thin veneer mixed with illusion. People walking in the front door enter a pocket universe. When under attack, the door closes and the restaurant pinches off from the current universe. This is a neutral zone.

The apartment Building heals itself, but some apartments inside also skip out of the current dimension and can NOT be entered.

The building rooftop is set up to defend the building (Tsu and Dab have put guns there before so I'm sure those are still in place). There's a massive rail gun in the back yard that GT's tech priests built for the last invasion; it doubles as an organ. A force field can be quickly placed to further protect the building. (It defeats magical/god powered attacks. It defeats nano, mechanical and supernatural infiltration. This came into play during the last invasion. It forms a sphere around the area, roughly ten blocks wide but it can be scaled back so it doesn't hinder a story too much. Conventional weapons won't affect it.)

Various characters have close ties to their nation's military. Tsu and Bran have both called in their forces for support in the past. Ceril's nation is backed by CSMs and Dark Mechanicum... FT, with all the firepower found in 40K plus Chaos gods. Bones also has an advanced military. Swith's is bio-based FFT; they destroy planets instead of wage ground/air battles... no one here wants them to spore!

There are more defenses... you'll encounter them as you go.
Wait until a player is online before breaking into their character's apartment.

Other Haunts
Image

These are established areas outside Bielefeld where players RP as a group for holidays or vacations.
Gliese 581g


The Planet:
Gliese 581g is the Germanic Templars home world. It's set in a future timeline and not in the same solar system, obviously. It was used to house all characters after the Drone invasion and we might return there as a group at a future time.

Here is GT's description...

The Setting:

Throne Room
Equivalent of the Lobby, where you would enter with a throne in it. Did I mention there was a throne in it? Stay off the Emperor's Thinking Bench.

Library
Located off to the right of the Throne room. Specifically past the first door on your right. Books vary between old paper and leather back to modern pads that read the book to you (now your child too can read and listen to Shakespeare's Macbeth). By the way, it's a huge library with tower stairs leading up to the second floor as well as a balcony that over looks the lower part of the library.

Palace Dining Room
Not much other than it's a huge frikken dining room with plenty to sit. On the left side of the building (assuming if you were looking at it from the front).

Recreational area
In the back of the building. Includes a dojo and from there it breaks off into a pool/spa area off to the left, weight room to the right, and Virtual Simulation room directly across the dojo.

Living area
Right side of the building where there are a labyrinth of hallways and rooms.

Strip
The place that is two miles long and lays out front of the palace pass it's walls. With it are a Ch'as, a few kiosks and stores, and directly across is a parking garage for air vehicles.

Side note
Doors are automatic unless locked. Lights tend to come on down the hallway or room you enter, and kitchen is pretty much off limits since food is either brought to your room or to the dining room (And by food I do not mean the people bringing it). In the far back of the building there is a nice garden.




The Background:
Gliese 581 is the Templar's home world. Cornelius Thriller is their emperor. The people know him in his mech suit form. This is a fully-fleshed planet, meaning the player has taken the time to set up culture, areas for fun or industry or various religions whatever. You can only visit with GT's permission.

The Rules:
1) No tech stealing. You can ask to trade tech. GT has to agree to it.
2) Absolutely respect the property of the nation.
3) ASK GT before doing something that can change Germanic Templar canon.
4) Big one... it's a future setting on a planet far away. No bringing in militaries.
5) GT functions as a Co-OP while players are on his planet. His decisions on what can or can't be done must be followed. He has the right to ask people to REDACT if they do something that violates his canon, culture or concept.
The Island

Image

The island is located far off the coast of [REDACTED]. The shoreline has pristine beaches although there are cliffs on the opposite side. The majority of people have huts along the beach although the raptors claim the volcano base and Swith has her compound offshore (it can be reached by wading through the shallows to her atoll. There is a large pavilion near the huts (Bran and Rylli were married there) and the Germanic Templars have a small factory of sorts. There is also a large fire pit area where the group gathers for luaus or music (or ghost stories) in the evenings.

The interior of the island has dense vegetation. The ground rises steadily upward to a small, dormant volcano.

The island is used as a holiday getaway and for other vacations.

Tsu first suggested we make one to get away from the 2012 winter doldrums.

Descriptive post from PL IC IX
The Island haunt was extremely familiar to many, but for the newer Residents, this was their first glimpse of paradise. It loomed ever nearer as the aircraft made their approach. Their first view was of the steep and ominous cliffs on the far side of this ocean jewel, and the top of a volcano. These rose up from the sea at a steep angle. The surf crashed heavily at the rocks and boulders which protected the shear wall from eroding away.

The aircraft banked and circled around the island, allowing those on board to see her full glory in the rising sun.

Sunlight glistened upon the crystal clear waters beneath them. The rays kissed the pristine beaches and then warmed the dense vegetation that served as a backdrop for a row of huts perched between jungle and shoreline. Those huts were a welcomed sight for so many. They were the holiday homes of the Residents. Some stood vacant in anticipation of new owners.

A large pavilion had been erected on the beach last year. Each night, it was lit by thousands of twinkling white lights. Outside, multicolored Christmas lights would illuminate a path that forked into two directions. One led to a large fire pit set up for roasting marshmallows and other things on sticks, and the other path led to a small grotto used for prayer and meditation by some of the Residents. The bonfire pit had been the place of so many fond memories, but it had sat vacant for a long while. The sitting logs were still there, but it lacked firewood. Someone would have to beachcomb for it.

The glint of metal revealed the Germanic Templar’s cluster of buildings amidst some trees. Somewhere down there was the entrance to an old bunker that served as a base for Bones and his brothers. Also there was the remains of the Monfroxian compound, although it had been heavily damaged during the Drone Invasion; no weapons were left and the building itself was a husk.

There was an odd rocky outcrop just off that main beach, and a strange cottage nestled atop it.

A small, perfectly round atoll sat just off the main island, its watery center an intensely deep blue in contrast to the white beaches and palm trees surrounding it. There was a compound of sorts… more a series of open buildings interlinked by covered walkways… that faced the island huts. It could only be reached by a thin pathway from beach to atoll, and the visitor would need to wade through ankle deep water if using it. A yacht rocked on the light waves. It would be very familiar to Superbia and Swith.

Also visible was Mer Lagoon, a secretive place cherished by the BranRiechians Rylli and Bran. The crystal clear waters there revealed the massive form of Pookie the Leviathan swimming from it, craggy spines breaking the water and casting up spray in his wake.

A short distance away from all this were wooden platforms constructed right on the beach. These were new, and served as a travel platform. The aircraft would be able to hover down here, their massive engines far enough from the main structures so as to not cause damage.

Tributes, Quirky Stuff and Nonsense
Image

You helped shape us. For that, I'm grateful. ~ Cerillium
Swith Witherward wrote:The evening sky on Gliese was peppered with stars. Swith, who had gone on vacation with her mate and children, slipped from bed and opened the French doors leading out to the balcony. The palace below was still in celebration. Swith's eyes weren't on them, though. She looked up at the stars and drew a shuddering breath.

It was a silent keen that traveled on a plain that no mortals could hear. It was a greeting and a goodbye wrapped in a gossamer strand that couldn't be broken by mortals or gods or even the Greater Beings. It was a patient and gentle understanding buoyed by her gratitude and admiration for a foe who had, in a sense, become a cherished entity in her world.

She stood silently amongst the sounds of revelry and joy from below, and she wept tears that were neither sad or happy. They were simply tears, and they fell from her eyes and landed on her chest without any further preamble.

"Farewell," she whispered to the stars. Her mind reflected upon octopus and pizza parlors, replicants and tea with scones. She sighed and her head tilted as she keened again. And then, because there wasn't anything left to do, she stepped inside and closed the door to block out the noise for a while.

Transgravitas Directorate wrote:The strains of Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C# Minor echoed throughout the darkly lit ether of Cuisine's apartment. He and Luce sat together over beers, toasting an honorable acquaintance and an enigmatic mind. They spoke of Aetherians and shards, of yachts and cars, and of sand and sea. Conversation intermingled with the hopeful beginning, haunting progression, and chaotic climax. Dim blue and green highlights from the wall panel displays gave them tranquility, however, and the hope that things would someday be better.

And finally, as the closing notes brought the piece to an end, the pair sat in silence.

Cerillium wrote:Ceril navigated the business end of the soldering iron between fine wires coupled to an old circuit board. The white hot light flared and briefly illuminated his face and the face of the servator next to him. He sighed and examined his work.

Not bad. Needs more. Possibly -

He yawned and removed the iron from the confines of the cabinet. "Needs more later. It's late as it is."

The servator, a replica of the D7-N1-X8 blinked stupidly at him. She could never replace the actual thing she was copied from. "It is late," she said.

"No shit. I just said that."

"Yes."

Ceril rubbed the skin under his optics and groaned. "Go dock, Mavis 12."

He watched the drone clone gracefully cross the workroom to join her "sisters". He'd done many things with those clones - dressing them in hula outfits or programming them to sing show tunes - but he'd never lost respect for the beings who fashioned the original Mavis.

The old cyborg checked his work a final time and walked from the workroom. His hand paused on the light switch. "Goodnight ladies."

"Good night," they replied in unison as the overhead flickered off.


From OP Cer:
Thanks, man. Thanks for making our world richer. It's been a pleasure and an honor gaming with you. You're gonna be making a difference no matter where life takes you. Good luck in Basic.

From Co-OP Tilt:
You've been a solid sort here in PL, and you'll be a solid sort in Basic - so no need to tell you not to let the bastards grind you down. You've got that covered already. Stay frosty and you'll be back laughing it up with us 'fore we know it. Best red.

From Co-OP Swith:
*crying* Can't type. Can't see keys. Seriously, though... we'll miss you. I'll miss you. You've been a good friend and it's always hard when friends ship out. We made a lot of good memories together and shared a lot of laughter. So, this isn't goodbye. It's just "farewell until we meet again." And remember... you don't want to eat BT mud. It's nasty.

Cerillium wrote:Ceril sat on a rocky outcrop and bid silent farewell to the raptors. They'd been part of this madness far longer than he. It had been his honor to track things over the years. He recalled the story of the day Neil (as NVE) first stepped into the building.



"Can I come in? I have cake!" NVE had shouted before affixing a large fake mustache to his snout. "Can sombody let me, a completely ordinary person, in? I lost my keys, not in a fire!" He just was about to move into this building because his last apartment building was vaporized by the small nuclear reactor he built.

Perhaps he would have been left out in the cold were it not for Dabfia. Dab (the normal Dab and not evil Dab) had let the velociraptor in and, after making Dab promise to not mention the initial offer of cake, the raptor had scampered off to steal a stranger's an occupied room in order to plot a means to own the first building thus forgo the necessity of rent payments. The most logical (for a raptor) conclusion was to build a nuclear device of some kind and use it somehow.

(*cue evil laugh*)

Sadly, the only thing NVE had available was what was available. He slipped into the basement, unfastened the heavy water heater and then ran afoul of Bones (whose room he had stolen.)

Flassshback!

Bones was staring out the window when he heard shouting. He looked down and saw a talking velociraptor knocking on the door. Dabfia let him in.

Interesting. This is something worth looking into... My, my, there's some interesting characters moving into here. He clasped his fingers together and smiled. Things will definitely be getting interesting around here... Excellent...

Bones watched the strange creature drag the water heater.

"You do realize you don't have a room, right?"

"Of course I have a perfectly legitimate room that exists. Otherwise I just stole a total stranger's room. I definately didn't not do that!" NVE replied. Of course, that is exactly what he did.

Bones wasn't convinced. "Suuurrreee... and what are you going to do when that stranger comes back and finds you in his room?"

"Ummmmm...I AM HIM! Don't you reconize me? I got a haircut and grew a mustashe!" NVE replied and pointed to the fake mustache.

"Riiigggghhhhtttt... what's your room number?"

"Ummmmm...Pi times R squared divided by zero!" NVE said hoping to confuse him. "I wasn't expecting some kind of Spanish Inquisition!" he added.

"Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition. And that is my room, by the way."

"Oh really? Then prove it!" NVE said as he made a dash for the door and locked it behind him. Then NVE locked all the extra locks he added.

"You missed one," Bones said, pointing over NVE's shoulder. He turned around and walked into his bedroom, locking the door behind him.


"Dammit!" NVE cursed after discovering that he was now locked out.

"Fine! I'll just find another better room that doesn't smell bad! Crap, I left my suitcase in there!" he added. NVE didn't want Bones to touch his suitcase, he needed to get in there fast. NVE looked at the water heater. "BINGO!"

The velociraptor scampered outside and grabbed a car battery out of one of the parked vehicles on the street. He ran back in and wired it to the water heater, then smashed off all the safety devices with his wrench. He positioned the water heater in front of Bone's door.

"If it worked on Mythbusters, It'll work here." NVE muttered to himself.

Bones heard loud noises coming from outside his door. Looking outside, he saw that the dinosaur had positioned an improvised explosive right outside his door. Bones grabbed the water heater and dragged it inside, disconnecting it from the battery in the process. He locked the door again behind him.

"Dammit!" NVE had been thwarted.

His next course of action was to run to the hardware store where he 'legally purchased' some rope. He climbed onto the roof of the apartment building and tied down one end. With a firm grip on the other end, NVE jumped off the roof and smashed through the window of Bones' apartment.

"Ta Da!...I mean...Hand over my suitcase and nobody gets hurt!" NVE threatened and held out... his empty hands.

"Wait a second." NVE opened his suitcase and pulled out two Uzis.

"Much better," he said and closed his suitcase. "Now hand over my suitcase before I fill ya full of lead fiery death...something!" NVE threatened.

BUT......

The room was empty, save for the water heater, which had been hooked up to another battery. The suitcase was strapped to the bomb. There was a note on it:

Here's your suitcase.

"Dammit! Well at least I got my suitcase back..." NVE was interrupted by the water heater exploding.



The old cyborg's laugh was softly huffed breaths that escalated into thunderous laughter. Those were the days, my friend! Those were the best days: the salad days when everything was sparse and absolutely nothing was sacred.

He hadn't a glass to raise in toast to the raptors. He lifted his eyes to the heavens and named a constellation in NVE's honor instead.

The BranRiech wrote:Bran, simply humbled to be in the presence of his friends (And evil genius'), was already shedding tears as the Raptor's left their presence. Whether it was venturing into Neil's mind to save him from himself, or venturing up to a Moon prison to once again save them, he always knew he'd have loyal friends in them, wherever they were. There was of course, the share of bad times as well, but hell, all friends went through them. Bran had long since forgiven them for that. "Farewell, old friends." He whispered as the house vanished, Rachelle watching from atop his lap (Which she was getting way too big to be sitting on!)

Rylli too, was thinking the same things, and Natiya too.

Giovenith wrote:Giovenith was more than a little confused at the disappearance of the raptors' house and household, spinning and tilting her head toward the now-empty space, momentarily entranced by how it faded like a state of consciousness on the brim of twilight. Which one, though? Awake, or asleep? Suddenly, she felt silly for trying to guess which... of course the raptors would never allow themselves to be that simple. They danced on the edge of that which was known, in their own way. It was a rather magical thing, despite that Giovenith knew they preferred science, the smart cookies... magic, science, it was all a talent. It took talent to the spin the world round in a way you wished, to make the glass half full and half empty, or to knit riddles that were only satisfying with no answer.

Pressing both hands to her mouth, Giovenith set a kiss down in them, then stretched out her arms theatrically to send it flying on the wind toward the spot the house had once been.

"Buh bye!" she called out without sorrow, stretching one hand to wave widely at the sky. "See you soon! Love you! Don't forget to come back home and play again!"

They wouldn't forget. She didn't know where they had gone, why, or how soon they'd be back, but that didn't matter. One of the most important lessons friendship taught you was how to say good-bye, to not feel heartbreak over the sunset... and to be confident that, like sunrises, there would always be another hello. Reminding herself of this with a deep breath, Giovenith folded her hands in front of her and began to walk off from the remains of the party. She wouldn't go home just yet; sunsets were just as lovely as sunrises, especially on a place as Eternal as an island beach. The land would assist in nurturing her reflections.

Swith Witherward wrote:Swith watched Torii run off to her hut. A sense of peace settled in her chest. It was good to see spark from the girl again, and even better than she'd returned to join the group in cooking things over the fire. That's how it should be... community, family, kinship.

She nodded to Cuisine and helped herself to his thoughtful drink.

The stars were twinkling overhead now, and Swith lifted her glass of liver towards them and towards her first friend. Somewhere out there, raptors zoomed along in a House. Somewhere out there, a Velocidoctor sat in a Construct's kitchen and sipped tea. Somewhere out there, their handler perhaps sat in a quiet room and longed to return.

"It was a lovely dinner, NVE," she whispered to the sky. "It's a lovely friendship."

They'd return. She believed that in her heart. She'd hunt them down if they didn't. It would be her personal quest, of course, to bring back a bit of non-Chaos chaos to this universe. Swith chuckled.

"Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible. I think it's in my basement... let me go upstairs and check." She spoke the words of M.C. Escher with conviction, relishing the twist in thinking. "And rabbit holes really do lead to Wonderland, my dear. So everyone move over, get a clean cup, and if the dormouse gets finicky, just dab his nose with jam."

Swith finished her beverage and handed the cup back to Cuisine. She wanted to visit Thriller's old hut, but someone had completely redone everything and she doubted even the factory was the same. She couldn't walk down memory lane there. It was just as well.
Yes, we have one.

"I Can't Decide"

It's not easy having yourself a good time
Greasing up those bets and betters
Watching out they don't four-letter
Fuck and kiss you both at the same time
Smells-like something I've forgotten
Curled up died and now it's rotten

I'm not a gangster tonight
Don't want to be a bad guy
I'm just a loner baby
And now you're gotten in my way

I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride

It's a bitch convincing people to like you
If I stop now call me a quitter
If lies were cats you'd be a litter
Pleasing everyone isn't like you
Dancing jigs until I'm crippled
Slug ten drinks I won't get pickled

I've got to hand it to you
You've played by all the same rules
It takes the truth to fool me
And now you've made me angry

I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride

Oh I could throw you in the lake
Or feed you poisoned birthday cake
I wont deny I'm gonna miss you when you're gone
Oh I could bury you alive
But you might crawl out with a knife
And kill me when I'm sleeping
That's why

I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride

(Thank you, NVE!)

These posts are ones which are profound, moving, or otherwise phenomenal. length is not a factor: content is everything.



Temporary parking spot for inactive players. To be transferred once new thread opens.
Nocturne
A puppet who used his strings to strangle his puppeteer. Embraced the darkness that consumes, then ate it. Full details.
Dab
Dab is the personification of Dabfia. He is ex military though he still has connections in it. He appears to be 25 but he is really 178. Though he was in the military he prefers to use his katana after he learned to use a sword. He is a skilled engineer as well (that's what he did the military.) Full Details.
Virgo
Virgo is a wealthy young lady who had an extensive education journey. She mostly keeps her feelings to herself and would rarely express her personal opinions on any particular thing. Also, Lady Luck is smiling upon her. Full details.
Michael Manis
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. Full details.
Lee Hyunsik
Lee was born in 1996 where until the age of fifteen he lived a normal life until a hideous creature murdered his loved ones. His Uncle then became his legal guardian where he was taught the tricks of the trade of demon hunters before graduating. On the outside Lee seems to be excellent student who tries to help others, but most of them just keeps to himself. In reality he is a deadly demon hunter who handles demons assigned to him by his Uncle's organization. He possesses genius-level intellect, and can create plans at breathtaking rates. Full Details.
The Delegate
The Delegate is a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey, who's a morally just scientist, with a passion for all things technological and timey-wimey.
Full Details.
Jack Davids
An introvert that constantly battles for his own sanity and prefers solitude, being awkward when it comes to people. Full details.
Daphne Fey
A very naive 18 year old girl with the power to summon any elemental monster or spirit. She would rather fight than flight; but despite her tough exterior, she is sweet, friendly and social. She would do anything for her friends, and would do anything to gain the respect and approval of her peers she desires so much. She could be swayed to go either way: good or bad, but she considers herself neutral.Full Details.
Lance
Lance is still just what he once was - a spoiled prince. In the time he was gone ruling over his nation in the distant past he learned many things such as responsibility and how to temper his overconfidence and arrogance, but this does not mean he has mastered the art. He is still overconfident, and still arrogant, but he does not force his rule onto others as he once did. He is wiser, but still young with a lot left to learn before he is ready to return to his own time and rule for the rest of his days. While some find it hard to stomach him he is very loyal those he calls friend. Full details.
Anya Veldt
A veteran of three militaries from different eras, Anya Veldt is quick to anger, slow to forget, and most importantly, a good shot with an assault rifle, so try not to get on her bad side. Like talking, long walks on the beach, and toying with heavy machinery. Is also very much attached to her adoptive son, Phillip; don't touch him. Full details.

Phillip Veldt
A clever teenager (read: smartass who's been reading more books than's good for him) who nonetheless is pretty good at reading people and generally tries to get along with everyone to the maximum extend allowed by being a teenager. Full details
Volker
Volker has shown interest in developing relationships in organic beings in order for it to either use them to its advantage or to make them believe that he won't consume them. Its Hunger Form is only used when it has been starved for 5 days. You do not want to meet Volker when it is in its hunger form. It shows an alarming amount of pleasure whenever it dresses up like Tim Curry from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", and shows increased pleasure when singing the song "Sweet Transvestite". Did we mention that you don't want to meet it in "Hunger" form? Last, if it tries to have sexual intercourse with anything use every available means necessary in order to prevent said sexual intercourse.Full details.
"Fred"
Fred is an unknown being which is disguised as plague doctor. It almost doesn't talk and It's obsessed with science and black magic. It never has hurt a living being because it wants to "Cure, not to kill". Full details.
Finduin
Finduin is a female High Elf who has lived her whole life in the bliss of Valinor. She is a daughter of Finarfin, Prince of remnant of the Noldor in Valmar, and Earwen, Swan-Maiden of Alqualonde, who was born sometime after the departure of the Exiles from Valinor. She is wise for her age, funny, generally friendly although she is somewhat withdrawn, she loves all living things, although her strong emotions and fiery nature sometimes make it difficult for her to get along with other sentient beings. She enjoys language, poetry, song, music, horseback-riding, sparring, swimming, and dancing At least, she was and did all of these things, until a temporary rift in the fabric of her world caused her to be warped into another time and place. At the moment of her arrival in this universe she was completely terrified and it took her a while before she was able to overcome her fear of her new surroundings and sadness at the loss of her home and family and to take an earnest interest in life once more. Full details.
Ate Dupont
A calm and collected man, if a bit mysterious. He claims to reign from the Teepot Kingdom, though no one dares confirm it. He also seems to stick to the shadows, as it seems that he can materialize close to anywhere. As for his ego, it is rather small, and he would much rather absorb the atmosphere of a party rather than be the life of it. Lastly, he owns two pets: both a crow and a raven, whom are allowed to roam as they please. Full details.
King Cerril El Estafador
King Cerril El Estafador is a changeling (Insectiod unicorn with perforated legs, essentially), and the king of an obscure, somehow wealthy nation named Tinell. He's generous, although a bit prone to anger if too many things go wrong for him in succession. He is also quite susceptible to panicked breakdowns, where his behavior becomes unpredictable or outlandish, to say the least. Still, when it really matters he'll get over his fears and rise to the occasion, doing whatever needs to be done. Full Details.
Jody Tachibana
As an experienced county hunter, she not only has skill in terms of capturing bounty, but also has an almost boundless information network. Although quite formidable as an opponent, she often overestimates her own ability leading her to make a potentially deadly decision. When she’s not involved in a job, she’s often very relaxed and enjoys a wide variety of activities. These range from board games to biking, cooking to doing brain teasers. She is also typically very cheerful and would do much to help those in need.Full details.

Message from IC OP

Postby Cerillium » Tue Nov 12, 2013 2:52 pm

It's an honor to be your IC OP. I'm proud of our group and the harmony we maintain.
Thanks for your outstanding creativity.
- Cer
The IC is now marked "Semi".
Part of my role is to balance our group.
Good grammar, proper formatting and attention to details are important.

Not all who apply will be accepted. You don't have to be a world-class RPer, nor write like Stephen King.
What you do need is a basic grasp of language, the desire to learn, and the understanding
that this isn't a one-liner RP that you join because you're bored and have nothing else to do.

Wonderfully made, great job Swith 'n Cer! I really like the distinguishing icons.

But in any case, I feel that Swith's current flag means that we'll be under the authoritative eye of the Fennec regime. It looks scary.

This OOC is so beautiful. My tired, almost-bleeding eyes are soothed by the very sight of it.

Okay, so maybe that's not physically possible, but if it were they would be. Great work!

I especially like the little graphics at the top of each box; if they were there before I didn't notice them, so regardless, those are awesome.

Also going through the just-locked OOC, and noticing a few things I feel I should mention to help you guys improve.

-Collabs. Don't forget these exist. They're really fun to do, too, as working with other players gets you more used to looking closely at their posts and thinking of how to write replies.

-Items/belongings. As in here for example. And Jacob's magic carpet, and whatever items Bran and fam got from the bazaar, and such. It's easy to forget, but there's the Characters thread on the OSF to note things down so you don't have to waste effort on remembering who's got what, unless you want to. :p

Your NS Nation's Nickname: Yieston

Character Name: Jody Tachibana

URL to Character Picture or description of what they look like:
Appearance
Frequently wears this without the overcoat
Frequently wear this overcoat along with the previous
Weapon of Choice
Only that she doesn’t have the circular wrist guard, everything but the circle part.

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

Character Unique Skills(if any): Master Swordsmanship, Peak Human Strength, Peak Human Speed, High Intelligence, Hand to Hand Combat, Ability to Speak Several Languages (Japanese, English, Mandarin, Cantonese).

Character Powers (if any): (12 points to spend, no single power over 8 )
Enhanced Condition: Despite having a high number of points in this category, her physical abilities are not as impressive it seems. She has the ability to do flips and the like, quickly accelerate for a quick dash, have slightly above normal strength, and to jump to a maximum of about twelve meters. However, her enhanced condition also increases her reflexes to the point in which she can dodge bullets. (7 points)
Flash Precognition: Ability to detect danger to herself a second before it happens (1 point)
Regeneration: A nanobot generating organ allows the production of nanobots with in turn allow here to regenerate basic wounds. More serious wounds will take more time to recover. If the brain itself sustains serious injury, it cannot be repaired. (4 points)
Total points: 12[/quote]

Character Weaknesses/Flaws: Overconfidence, Poor time management (Frequently late).

Character Background: Born as the daughter of a Yakuza official, the concept of ‘justice’ was deeply set within her: to punish those who did wrong, no matter the means of doing so. When a mercenary of a rival gang group attacked the apartment in which she lived, her father sacrificed his own life to buy time for Jody and her mother to escape. Swearing vengeance, she aimed to one day bring the criminal to justice. With rigorous training, her skills improved day by day.

After many years as a bounty hunter, her information network had grown to allow her to access almost any information necessary to catch her next bounty. Along with that, her circle of friends also increased. With her network of friends, she managed to get a hold of a seemingly indestructible blade of not only high strength, but also high heat resistance. A blade which she has now grown close to.

One night upon entering a restaurant at the top of a skyscraper, she overheard a conversation which had drawn her suspicions that a certain man at the table must have been the one who had murdered her father. She tailed him into an alleyway where she introduced herself to her target. After her target admitted to his deeds, the two engaged in battle, blade against gun. Despite being nearly evenly matched, her opponent’s stamina was much higher than hers. As she tired, her attacks began to lose power, speed, and form. Taking advantage of this, her opponent managed to land several shots on to her at fatal arteries. As she gripped her wounds and prepared for death, with her fading vision, she caught sight of a second man running into the scene.

She woke up within her own bed, completely bandaged up. It was not long before she recognized the room and deduced what must have happened: a friend of hers most likely had passed the alley by chance, saw her in her condition, and rescued her. She was later informed that in order to save her, a close friend of hers had injected into her experimental nanobots which he had recently developed. With that, her body was able to repair the wounds she had received. Now that her close encounter with death had shown her vulnerability to a similar senario, she pooled in much of her savings into helping her friend develop an organ which would be able to produce those nanobots. Upon completion, she had the organ implanted to ensure her not only survival next time she would meet such a difficult opponent, but to also victory next time she met the assailant to avenge her father’s death.

Why he/she/it is in Bielefeld: She is here to set up a new base of operations in search of bounty.
