Wow.

"Throwing the book" at someone just got a whole lot nastier.

Indeed, of course I'm not going to start with that. That seems more like a mid-level book. He'll probably start with something like the "D&D Monster Manuel". And his ultimate weapon is probably going to be something like "Complete Guide to SBURB" Now THAT will be a big book.

EDIT: Or this will do

 

Working on my character and a paper and studying for one of my last tests of this semester so I will hope to have Him up by the end of the night.

And darn you Carnival, I was going to do scissors! Though I may pitch a weapon you could possible find/make later in the game, if your interested in hearing it that is.

Well I guess I am going to have to choose between Yoyokind, Stickkind, and lcrsstckkind ( lacrosse stick kind )

decisions decisions....

I would go with Yo-Yo kind personally.

Aaaaah Lily and Jack are both great! ;D
Also, thanks so much for helping Crystal understand the inventory nonsense

Only one question: how is Given Name different from Full Name as far as this character sheet goes?

Basically just whatever your characer is most commonly referred. It could be his first name or a nick name or whatever.

What sort of character pics are you expecting (other than tall and thin)? Art work? Photos? If you want original art, then I'm going to respectfully submit a picture of my character wearing a white suit with her face painted white out walking during a blizzard!

Also, do you specifically want PG15 safe pics or are you going to create a thread to post them in, or should we PM them to you?

Haha, no art skills required here :P
Photos and illustrations are both fine, but completely optional like I said. A regular portrait would probably be more appropriate than something steamy since sex won't be a big focus of the game, but we're all adults here so if that's what works best for your character that's fine too.
Profiles should go here for now. I'm actually looking into using the Wiki to host bios and setting information but if I can't get that figured out I'll toss up a reference sheet thread along with the OOC.

Working on my character now. He's going to be a Dogkind, so I'm really looking forward to weapon progression for that one.

Haha, THAT is going to lead to some very odd "weapons" (Like dogs with bees in their mouths so when they bark they shoot bees at you?) but I look forward to seeing how you use it ;D

Sorry. I hope it doesn't mess with your character concept, too much!  :( I'd said on the first page, pretty early...

"I saw 'scissorkind' on the strifedex list when Egbert first equips his hammer and it has totally occurred to me to app a paper-crafter hobbyist. <_< Because ohgod combat-scissors seem so silly and yet possible in outrageously tweakable ways."

Not a 'called it,' just a 'Didn't mean to be a surprise?' Or, oh, dammit, that was in a spoiler, wasn't it. T_T Okay. Well, sorry about that!

We could get a themed trio with rock and paper! Rock could get some pretty amazing weapons...

I bet...Paper is a little harder to think about. Combat origami specialist?

Sorry for taking so long, I was having trouble deciding on several things. Here's a to-be-completed version until I get back from my last Organic Chemistry lecture for the semester. No pic yet, unless I draw one later.

Marty

Full name: Martin Storstrand
Age: 19
Gender: Male
Appearance: A tall, thin boy, about 5'11" and 150 pounds, with short blonde hair that he brushes to the right, a single strip of it dyed light blue. Wears thin-framed glasses over his green eyes, and usually dresses in warm colors (red or orange shirt with yellow shorts, mostly). When it's cold out, likes the look of a long, black coat, even though very few other people like the look of it. Smooth but slightly pale complexion from spending a lot of time indoors.

Screen name: [soundHound]
Associated color: Red
Associated symbol:

Strife Specibus: Dogkind



Fetch Modus: Wave Modus - Items in the Sylladex alternate in High Amp, Low Amp settings, each new item Captchlogued pushing all previous items into the alternate state (the newest item starts at High Amp). Only High Amp cards can be used at any time. When the Sylladex is full and the user tries to add a new card, instead of the last one being removed, the Low Amp card with the earliest alphabetical placement is removed, and then all cards before it move into place.

Background: Born in Norway, Martin was brought over to America by his father at a very young age, after his mother passed away and his father went to America to explore new career opportunities there. Since he didn't even reach school age before coming to the new country, very little is foreign about Martin other than his name, something that puts him at constant cultural odds with his father. Growing up, Martin indeed had very little closeness with his father, though this could more be accounted for how busy his father was at work.

On top of this, his father's love for fragile Russian nesting dolls meant he could not allow Martin to have a pet dog, which was the one thing he wanted the most, as a dog would easily break any of the dozens of dolls his father kept around the house. All of this put together meant Martin was extremely satisfied when he reached the age to go off to college, though it took quite a lot of reasoning to convince his father to rent a house for him rather than make him live in a dorm, where they wouldn't allow pets.

In his new little ranch house, Martin set up a sound studio to start creating less shitty music in and immediately rescued two dogs from the shelter; an old Rottweiler named Brutus and a feisty West Highland terrier named Nikolai. So began his new reign of terror on the Skain Scions BBS forum, where hardly a day passed without him posting a thread with some new sample track he composed or "funny" stories about and/or pictures of his dogs. Thankfully, though, he's nice enough that most people find him more likable than annoying, so he manages to get invited to online games from time to time.

Personality: While not exactly a social butterfly, Martin does better than most Internetaholics at talking to new people, though only if the appreciate at least one of his two favorite subjects. He really isn't a fan of stat-based games, preferring things that let him be open or creative, but as long as he has friends to play with, he can enjoy just about any game. To his friends, he's an exceedingly nice and sacrificing kind of guy, meaning he can be taken advantage of, although he does have his limits.

Current residence: Two-bedroom tenant house near Michigan State University.
Sexual Orientation: Hasn't tried either, but will give either a try.
Strengths: Good at earning the trust of animals. Can make okay music, but is much better at remembering important tunes and the like. Fairly good at making desserts.
Weaknesses: Making music that anyone would qualify as "really good." Gets too caught up in his hobbies to make it to class or do work. Very little forward planning skill, so putting him in charge of building could be a disaster.
Notable hobbies: Writing and synthesizing music (especially dubstep), studying and/or caring for animals, reading urban myths and horror stories, sharing his music online, pastries.
Likes: Animals (especially dogs, snakes, scorpions, octopi, and rabbits), dubstep, people who like animals and dubstep, classes that don't acquire much attendance or work, cakes and pies, playing cards, chances to apply his hobbies, games that are creative and wide-open instead of focused.
Dislikes: People who hate animals and dubstep, popular music artists, people who ask for too much and give too little, boring courses like math and economics, board games that move you along a single path, people who take games too seriously.
Fears: Birds, large fires, alcohol poisoning, losing his precious laptop and/or Internet.

I probably would, if there were anyone else in the game who didn't know what was going on, and had the default inventory, and didn't have a hand-drawn character pic of their own making.

There is nothing worse than being "the poor relation".

I don't have a character pic, I've only read the first act of the comic, and you can basically just do whatever you want for inventory, though. Just try to make it match your character somewhat (then again, it doesn't even have to).

And for the record, you'd probably do better than me, since I have absolutely no idea how Carnival's character's Modus works, even after carefully reading through it a few times.

Okay, well, in that case I will submit a partial character sheet and ask for help with the bits I am struggling with.

Incidentally, I actually have a good idea for a fetch modus, but there are other bits I'm struggling with.

I think I will have to work on it a bit at a time...

Because of the focus on this, I feel obliged to point out to anyone who is worrying about 'not having something special' that in a purely Meta context, what we're talking about amounts to 'How does my inventory system inconvenience and irritate my character.' with an available default option of 'It doesn't.'

It's inviting opportunities for humor/sudden obstacles at the expense of additional bookkeeping (having to actually TRACK how your inventory is handling items you acquire...Which might be tedious).

I have to agree with goat here. Don't worry so much about the inventory system stuff. The comic itself more or less dropped it, save every now and then for the sake of comedy.

Really the important thing is the character themselves, Which is 1000x more important then any small gimmick.

And if things get a tiny bit confusing at times, don't worry too much about it, being confused about things is just part of the experience, and something you will no doubt share with your character.   ;D

I guess, according to the most recent post, that being confused is all part of the experience, so this should be rather interesting... Where exactly should I start? Are there any basic ground rules that I should know before I accidentally create a character that breaks the rules of the universe that this RP is set in?

Breaking the rules of the universe is the other half of the experience  ;D

Kidding aside, there isn't a lot you need to worry about. Your pretty much an average 18-20 year old. You can live anywhere in the world, it really does not matter. Your an only child, with a single guardian (Comic has John and his Dad, Rose and her Mom, Dave and his Bro, and Jade and her Grandpa).

The Fetch Modus, while it seems complicated, isn't really something that is all that important to the story. its used for a few jokes and too add some flavor,  but in especially dramatic moments, its really best to ignore it.

Other then that, your pretty free I think. You know the rest of us online, in some manner.  So just pretend your making any average adult teen, and take it from there. The majority of the fun comes after we all start playing anyway.

Leo Rewood

Full name: Leonardo Redwood, Leo to his friends
Age: 19
Gender: Male
Appearance: Leo is 5 foot 5 with an lean build, His skin has a nice tan to it from a lot of time out in the Austin sun, His hair is a dark brown, straight, and about the length of his shoulders. It's often combed back and held in place by his favorite hat . He is normally wearing a dark orange t-shirt with a black jacket-hoodie on or tied around his waist ( more often than not around the waist ) and a well used pair of faded blue jeans. Wears black skaters shoes and black fingerless gloves, as is the style of hard core yoyo tricksters.

Screen name: [ artisticTwister]
Associated color: Orange
Associated symbol: Fucking Spirals Man  
Strife Specibus: Yoyokind
Fetch Modus: Abstraction Modus. The items you capturelog are filled away in your "portfolio" and stored as "ABSTRACT RENDITIONS" of the item. The pictures are so abstract that even for an artist such as yourself you have trouble telling what exactly your grabbing, to use the item you have to name what the painting is of accurately. ( If this is unacceptable let me know and I'll change it to the default modus )

Background: Leo grew up happily in the wild city of Austin, Texas. City of hippies, music, bars, and artists. He grew up with his cousin, she is something of a local musician and owner a bar that is also their home. He admires his Cousin who often plays rock music with her band on the stage inside the bar. She was the one who inspired his love of the arts, though he found he had no musical talent what so ever he eventually found he had a love for the arts and has been practicing for quite some time.

Leo has always had sort of a daredevil in him and it has gotten him into trouble more than once. Most notable would be the time he went to the great bat bridge with his cousin. While his cousin was distracted by a street performance, the young Leo was growing impatient with the massive horde of bats that were supposed to fly out at any moment and decided he was going to try and wake them up, He climbed over the railing to the side of the bridge to get a look at them. He slipped and ended up hanging for dear life off the side of the bridge, his helps for help stirred the 1.5 million bats to take off in a big black swarm that  practically engulfed him for a few terrifying moments before his cousin pulled him back up. While he never lost that recklessness he did end up developing a deep fear of the bats and the dark.

Leo has yet to go to collage, he fully intends to at some point, but he doesn't see the rush. He has plenty to do to keep him occupied like street perforating with his yoyo's, doing abstract paintings, working multiple part time jobs, mostly ones delivery and odd jobs; His favorite being as a volunteer stray catcher. more often than not he'll take a stray dog or cat home to live with him for a while before finding an owner for them.

Personality: Some people would describe Leo as a HIPPY, and while it's not untrue it's not actually entirely accurate. He is a bit of a...let's say FREE SPIRIT? Growing up in AUSTIN TEXAS influenced him in various ways, making him a what can only be called an "AUSTIN ART BOY", which simply means in tastes are eclectic at best. He has a rather RELAXED OUTLOOK ON LIFE and is something of a HOPELESS OPTIMISTS. Though one of the reasons for all this optimism is due optimist comes from being OVERRCONFIDENT in his abilities. While he is not a violent person he LOVES METAL MUSIC for the EPICNESS and PASSION it has. He is very friendly, and somewhat TOUCHY-FEELY, but doesn't always realize he's making people uncomfortable till they tell him. He has an obsession with SPIRALS and SPIRALING PATTERNS.

Current residence: Leo and his cousin live in a 3 story building where the bottom floor is a bar and the upper 2 floors function as their home.
Sexual Orientation: Bi
Strengths: Quick with his hands and light on his feet with a impressive amount of stamina
Weaknesses: tends to overestimate his abilities, is no stronger than your average man, and has a crippling  fear of the dark.
Notable hobbies: playing with yoyo's, street performing with his paintings and yoyo tricks on weekends, drawing and painting abstractions, Health food.
Likes: Bright colors, flashy art, spinning things, Loud music, his pet pug: Doodles   
Dislikes: White chocolate, the dark, things that are to monochromatic, Smooth Jazz
Fears:Bats, unclosed spaces, being smothered.

PHINE

Full name: Josephine Hawksman
Age: 19
Gender: F
Appearance: Phine has shoulder length brown hair and brown eyes. Her face has a slightly far-Eastern appearance in spite of her having no known ancestors from that part of the world. She is 5'2" tall, weighs 113 lbs. She tends to dress comfortably rather than fashionably, usually wearing jeans and either tee shirts, hoodies or tank-tops.

Screen name: [musicofMaths]
Associated colour: Chocolate
Associated symbol:

Strife Specibus: Woodwindkind - Plays a lethal Saxophone...

This isn't really what I had in mind, but we can discuss that later

Fetch Modus: Fibonacci Sequence.

The captchalogue has an infinite number of levels, as follows:

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144...

Each number is calculated by adding the the two previous numbers together.

The top level (1a) is where an item that is Captchalogued goes when it is picked up. This is a temporary holding location and the item never stays there. Instead it drops down to the LOWEST level where it and the items below it will COMPLETELY FILL that level.

Example: The modus is completely empty and an item is picked up. It will drop into level 1b. The second item picked up will drop BOTH items into level 2. The third item will drop all three items into level 3. The fourth item, however will remain in level 1b until a fifth item is Captcha'ed at which point all FIVE items drop into level 5.

Removing an item from a level causes all items in that level to move up, to the lowest levels that they can completely fill.

Example: The Captchalogue contains 8 items in level 8. An item is removed. The remaining seven items are expelled from level 8 and five of them move to level 5 while the remaining two move to level 2. Which item goes where is random or at the choice of the GM...

The rule is, a level may only be completely full, never partially full.

Items may only be retrieved from the topmost level with any items in it. This means that, to retrieve one of the lower five items in the above example it is easiest to pick up an eighth item - even if it is just a rock, to drop everything into level 8, in order to take the item desired.

Background: Phine was raised in England by staunchly CofE parents. She herself has more or less rejected their religion. In school, she discovered a flair for Maths, a liking for jazz, and a dislike for boys. Exploring this, she realised that she was gay. Her parents were horrified when she told them, but slowly came to realise that there was nothing they could do about it. Her father still hopes that she will "grow out of this silly phase", but her mother has more-or-less accepted her daughter's orientation.

As part of her school curriculum, Phine needed to take a musical instrument. To be awkward, she chose the Alto Saxophone, only to learn that it was almost the same as the clarinet. However, her love of Jazz caused her to keep up with the instrument until she became rather good. However her first love is Mathematics.

Phine is currently at Teacher Training College, where she is hoping to qualify as a mathematics teacher.

Personality: Phine is actually quite shy. She spends far too much time chatting with girls on-line, and was shocked to discover that a lot of the girls in chat rooms who claim to be lesbians Were actually men or boys! Her shyness comes across in her dealings with people she meets in real life, but on-line she feels more confident. Her one hope is to meet a woman on-line who actually IS a woman, who is gay, and who lives near enough to actually meet up.

Current residence: Student lodgings, Brighton, West Sussex, England
Sexual Orientation: Lesbian
Strengths: Very intelligent, good with numbers, very loyal to those who earn her trust
Weaknesses: Not good with people, can be gullible, tends to sulk if things dont go her way
Notable hobbies: Playing the Alto Sax, collects Charlie Parker memorabilia, likes to do integral calculus for fun!
Likes: Numbers, maths, girls, computers, Jazz, The Original Bird, playing the sax, KFC, fish and chips, chocolate.
Dislikes: Pizza Hut, pop music, punk, boys - especially pushy boys, homophobes, smokers.
Fears: Dying of cancer, date rape drugs, heights.



Yay! I did it!

Are there any basic ground rules that I should know before I accidentally create a character that breaks the rules of the universe that this RP is set in?

Just to add to what Who said, when you create your 18-20 year old, I strongly suggest you work from the middle of the character sheet out towards the top and bottom: think up a personality and background you will have fun with, attach some hobbies you think can be used to do crazy things, THEN worry about finding a symbol that fits them, picking a color, and a screen-name based on their hobbies or interests.

The GM will be creating a sandbox that has a lot to do with the hobbies, likes, dislikes and fears of the characters, so do NOT worry about whether or not something will be 'relevant' or 'useful'. Your strife sylladex should also probably have something to do with one of your hobbies. If you decide your character is going to be sillyputtykind, then sooner or later Meliai will have to think up some kind of epic, hyper-powerful silly-putty that your character might quest for. There's nothing WRONG with having a character who is a fencing nut with a sword collection and a bladekind strife sylladex. There's a character like that in the comic, also another who is riflekind.  But there are lots of silly possibilities, too, so if that appeals to you, try playing with them! There will be opportunities to change or add to your strife sylladex later with other weaponkind.

The fetch-modus can also say something about your character (I.E., a musician who uses a fetch modus based on musical notation, or a cook whose fetch modus is based on recipes) or it can be a bland array (which in a way says something, too. It says 'I have better things to do than dick around with my fetch modus').  So again, I'd recommend picking your fetch modus later after you have a good idea of who your character is and what they might find amusing to use!

And everyone continues to look great! :D

Two small issues:

Winds: In the first paragraph of your bio you mention a sister who plays in a band; is that a third character or was it suppose to be Leo's cousin again?

Chrystal: Oriental, when used to describe people, is considered outdated and kind of offensive. It's not a slur, but it's sort of like calling a black person "Negro" - there's nothing inherently wrong with the word but it's heavily associated with an era where people were very bigoted and it still carries a lot of the connotations it held back then, so you might want to change that to Asian.
Captcha decks can't technically be infinite, but the cards themselves don't seem to be too valuable so I don't have a problem with Phine just having a fuckton of them

Uh... oookay. Asian to me means Indian, Pakistani or Bangladeshi. What we have here is a culture clash. Oriental simply means "Someone from the Orient" - literally, "Easterner".

Negro is technically offensive in English because of the way it was mispronounced, but it is the Spanish for "Black". Would a black person take offence at being called negro by a Spaniard speaking Spanish?

(As an aside, Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger has an interesting surname in that it translates roughly into English as Blackblacker...)
