[OOC] Infinity Overdrive
« on: May 05, 2017, 04:44:45 AM »
The Year is 21XX.
Technology has advanced at an insane pace. Colonization efforts have begun on planets beyond our system. Robots and androids aid mankind in their daily lives. Medical technology brings people back from the brink of death.
All for the right price, of course.
Corporations control the world, driven by profit and the advance of industry. They enforce their will through bribery and hired security and mercenaries.
Now, a single corporation has taken a position above the others as a globally known name. Ophion Unlimited, or just OphiCorp. The company that first discovered the Spark, the key to their successes and the catalyst for the events to come.

You feel light, drifting aimlessly in a gentle sea. It's comforting and warm, you feel no worries. And yet it feels like something is in the distance calling out to you... Do you reach out?



Characters
gonna get this filled out later

To summarize, this is going to be a cyberpunk-ish superhero RPG in the style of a Shadowrun game or Azure Striker Gunvolt. I'll be acting as a "GM", but I'm more than open to some collaborative setting building and integrating plot hooks tied to specific characters. Once we're past the initial introduction to the setting I'll talk to players more about their individual characters.

Very barebones, I know. It'll be expanded on as we continue.

(click to show/hide)

Once we have 3 or 4 people I'll start! Feel free to throw some questions my way.

Name: Aapeli Mannerhiem
Gender: Male
Appearance: A young, and formal man at a tall 6' 2'' with neatly kept black hair and with a heavy military background, descendant from the same man who defended Finland from the USSR in the days of old. Formally, he is often wearing a very old military uniform.

Quite close to what Aapeli looks like

Also, what is the spark?

Who says that you need to be good at games, anyway?

Name: Lillia
Gender: Female Android
Appearance: Really tall, 6'8 curvaceous android claiming she is 19 but no one believes her. White "skin" with dark grey covering her torso an neck. Parts of her glow (A power symbol between her neck and chest and her eyes). She also has vulpine-like ears and tail. You get a feeling someone designed her for things that an android really shouldnt do.
Well I am okay with a potential android character later on, for the purposes of the intro she wouldn't be around until a bit into the RP.
And personally, i'd rather you didn't play a fetish sex bot

My bad for not really specifying, but your characters at the moment have very few memories but stuff will come back to them. I'm down to talk to you about who your character was before the start of the game, but for now he should be a blank slate (in terms of history, at least). Also I'd very much prefer a character who doesn't obsess over a two century old war...
That said, the picture also doesn't work.
And the Spark is PLOT STUFF.

First IC post will be up tonight or tomorrow.

Name: Eser [Eh-saj]
Gender: Androgynous
Appearance: They are 5'9" tall, physically fit with dark skin and a fairly stoic face that seems to read "I'm having a hard time caring" most of the time. Whether that's what they are actually feeling is anyone's guess. They have dark, almost black eyes and their hair is incredibly short, being just a centimeter of dark brown fuzz on their scalp. They look to be fairly young, somewhere in their early twenties.

I didn't, say he was obsessed with it, and it's ok for him to not have his memory, and about the picture, it was a picture of when the real mannerheim was young

Sorry about that, I luckily had a secondary character if that wouldn't go though. My op has been updated. My apologies.

Sorry for slow posting right now, I should be able to post more now.

I want everybody to kinda start thinking about their powers if they haven't. Everybody is going to have a "theme" that defines their capabilities. For some inspiration check out the characters from Gunvolt (which is very admittedly the main inspiration) for an idea of what kind of powers you'll have: http://azurestrikergunvolt.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Boss

Run them by me once you think you've settled on something.

A side note, having the powers somehow tie into whatever ideas you have for a backstory for your characters is encouraged so tell me if you have any initial backstory ideas too.

Talked to Forrest already, waiting for him to write himself in so he can hop on the elevator with you.

Since you're setting up an RPG fight arena of sorts, if you need someone to take control of an enemy or something, i'm here
