Okay, so, I've recently been writing a lot of MechWarrior crossover stories on FF.net, and thought I might try to get one started here! I think all you BattleTech Fans (And some who aren't BattleTech Fans) Will get a kick out of this.
THE STORY: (For you non-BattleTech People)
It's 3050. There is only war. In this shattered and torn galaxy, there are people who are on the front lines of conflict, putting their lives on the line for what they hold dear. Suited up in their 100 Ton killing machines, called BattleMechs, these people fight day in and day out, the next day no longer certain for them. They are; MechWarriors.
THE STORY: (Of the Role Play)
It's 3070, the clans have been kicked out of the Inner Sphere and the day to day backstabbings within the Great Houses continue. Great House Steiner and Kurita are at each other's throats over a land grab the Draconis tried, and something's up with the Federated Commonwealth. You don't really much care about politics though. The only thing you do care about is the great and mighty equalizer, that which has been your idol, your GOD... since the day you left your mother's womb. The Almight C-Bill.
You will be taking the roles of hardened (Or newcomers, the choice is yours) 'Mech Pilots, Mercenaries... more specifically. I'm looking for about 5-7 'MechWarriors, and maybe (If we feel up for it) A financial advisor and a ComStar Representative. Here's the kicker, though. If you caught the meaning of the introduction and thread title, you'll be choosing ANIME, VIDEO GAME, or MOVIE characters to put into the roles of your 'MechWarrior. That's right. No OC's here. You'll be picking a person who isn't used to piloting a 100-ton killing machine, and making them do just that.
REGULATIONS: (Because we all need them)
There are a few regulations I must implement though. No characters from other Mecha series will be allowed. No Gundam characters, no Evangelion characters. No Break Blade characters, et all. Seeing Ryu Hyabusa from Ninja Gaiden trying to fly an Atlas 'Mech is funny. Seeing Shinji from Evangelion doing it... not so much. Now, if you want to edit how the character looks (Minutely) or their personality a little, be my guest. If they've got some kind of defect that would make piloting a 100-ton killing machine nigh impossible, you can lessen\remove it with permission (If you wanna be Lily from Katawa Shoujo, and remove her blindness, by mah guest.) But the character has to remain more or less in tact.
This is the base Character sheet for your characters.
Player Name: This is you.
Character Name: This is your character.
Character's Origin: Series your character is from. For all those people who wouldn't probably know. Like me.
Age: 16 and up, please. Keeping in mind that most potential 'Mercs go into Tri-M at 16, the younger they are, the less experienced they'd be.
Basic Description: This can be either verbal or pictoral
Preferred 'Mech: This can be anything from the 20 ton Firemoth to the 100 ton Atlas. If it's a Clan 'Mech, make sure they have a reason behind why they have it.
Mercenary Unit Affiliation: I haven't built the Mercenary Unit yet. I will when I get some peeps. Leave this blank for now.
Facts About This Person: Call this section what you want. Here, I basically want a few interesting things about this character. Do they lock up in times of extreme stress? Are they Alpha-Strike crazy? Do they push their BattleMechs to the edge of overload before shutting down? You know, things like that.
For now, don't start posting any characters. If you're interested, let me know here, but let's hold off on characters for a bit yet.
That should about do it. For all of you non-MechWarrior fans out there who got interested in this, I have a surprise for you.http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Main_Page
. Ta-daa! The BattleTech Wiki! Feel free to read on some of the mechanics, or, if you'd rather not read that, PM me, and I'll be happy to give you the basics.
