Ouroboros: Council of 5
« on: February 04, 2017, 02:07:37 AM »
The Ouroboros "Republic".
Really a co-dictatorship of 5, this civilization of reptilian mutants has existed for more than 20 years now.
They have managed to not just survive, but thrive in the Cataclysm.
Deep in their home of a science lab, a new council is to be formed.

(5 players will join and run this council.)


The castes of these reptilians:

Lesser: Barely mutated, they are considered peasants by the others. Often just has scaly skin, reptilian eyes, a tail, etc.

Close: Named so because they are close to breaking the threshold, they are better respected in the civilization. More mutated than the others.

Greater: The heavily mutated, they often have reached the full extent of the Lizard mutagen/serum.
Considered like nobles.


Special castes:

Half: This variety is a Lesser, Close, or Greater with bionics installed.


The application:
Name: (Often very Roman or something like a doctor. They used to be scientists, most of them.)
Gender: (Male or Female?)
Age: (Up to a normal human lifespan.)
Caste: (Pick.)
Bionics: (If you are not a half, this doesn't appear.)
Personality: (Simple as that.)


Some notes regarding the Republic is this:

1. Humans have 2 uses to the Republic: People to be converted to citizens or a food source.
Let me elaborate.
Strong humans: Convertion into a citizen.
Weaker humans: Food source.

2.The Republic sees themselves as a superior race.

3. Zombies and other nasties are obviously still a threat.

4. There is another mutant group nearby. They are called the Church of Advancement. They have abused the Alpha mutagen and serums. Beware. They are not allies.

(Edited to 5 in case of a tie during decisions.)

THE COUNCIL:
1. Dr. Markus Von Koester
2. Dr. Christopher Foster
3. Aulia Secunda
4. Dr. Parker Rutherford
5. Dr. Antony Aurelius

Council complete!

I'm also on Bay 12's forums. Look for a guy called Asin.

Looks interesting. Beyond the obvious RP effects, any sort of stats differences between the three castes?
Sometimes I think I'd have an easier time surviving Cataclysm IRL than in game.

Lessers and Closes are of average human intelligence.
Greaters are a bit higher.

Say the Lesser and Close intelligence scores were 10.
Greaters would have 12.


Lessers often are not as heat dependent as their more developed cousins because of them being not as mutated

Greaters are larger and do plenty of damage. But the heat dependence makes them shit for cold areas. Same for Closes.

The application:
Name: Dr. Howell Trololo. Dr. Markus Von Koester
Gender: Not too relevant at this stage in evolution.
Age: 60 years old
Caste: Greater
Personality:

Von Koester was a scientist stationed at the facility before the Cataclysm. He has been present since the community was founded, and also on the Council for most of that time.

He is stubborn, and prefers to spend a great deal of time plotting and debating before committing to a course of action. He is quite intelligent, but generally not open to new and risky ideas.

The application:
Name: Dr. Christopher Foster
Gender: Male
Age: 37 years old
Caste: Half, Close
Bionics: Enhanced Hearing, Cloaking System, and Wired Reflexes. [along with what is needed to power such things]
Personality:

Foster was one of the many to change, however never really able to get past the threshold he compensated with bionic augmentation.

Foster unlike his higher up is open to new ideas, not finding them to be quite so threatening, and preferring to take action as apposed to thinking things through for hours on end.

[Hope this is good enough]

(Ah. Okay. Also for me, my time zone is Mountain Time in the US. Where are the servers for the forums at?)

Name: Aulia Secunda
Gender: Recognisably female
Age: 20
Caste: Lesser
Personality: Aulia is largely egotistical, and believes that she is much more important than she actually is.   That being said, she is still slightly competent at leading, and can keep herself composed during combat situations.
Who says that you need to be good at games, anyway?

Mrnocamera. Everyone else calls him Mrno, but to me that sounds like either MRRRRNOOOO, or like he's gonna spend the rest of his life antagonizing James Bond when he finishes medschool.

I was joking that his character is plainly just himself in RP form.
