Gantz (Recruiting!!!)
« on: June 21, 2012, 04:29:33 PM »

"Welcome to the Toronto Ontario game of Gantz, I am your host Gantz. Ha Ha Ha. You have died, you are dead Your lives are over, you bastards. What you do with your new lives is for me to decide. So there you have it."

"Here are the rules."

Across the black orb appears a list of rules for the players of Gantz.

1) Try not to die
2) Kill as many targets as you can before the time runs out.
3) Get points



OOC:

Wow so you're still here, wonderful!

This game is what I am going to call extremely unique in the sense that the game does not revolve around our characters, but Gantz is what matters, your characters will exist within it and if your character survives long enough it will become something important within the world alongside the entity that is Gantz.

Now for all you people who dont recognize the title, I expect that will be the majority of you Gantz is a game; a giant black ball plucks you out of the world as you die at a random interval of Gantz's choosing as long as you're not about to die of old age Gantz upon the death of your body creates you a new one, every major city has a Gantz, so he only plucks people out of that particular city.

Here is the important part, most characters will consistently die. Humans completely clueless are expected to grab weapons suit up and fight aliens for the amusement of Gantz and whoever controls Gantz. There is an underlying more important role but your charries probably wont live long enough to witness that.

this is a game where I am hoping death for the pcs becomes a fact of life and those who do make it through more than 3 rounds of Gantz can be really proud of it.

Characters

You can create between 1-3 characters, please expect your charries to die, I want to write out deaths and destruction and general craziness. I will be working out as an ST how it will be done, but it will involve dice so that its completely fair for everyone and your choices have a very direct impact on making it.

I dont want a bio, I want the character to involve after the events of Gantz and I dont want players to write up extensive bios when they could lose the character.

Storyline

Your character(s) dies at 3 AM (You may rp the moments before your death) As your body dies instead of moving on you are suddenly transported to a small apartment filled with all the other characters playing, none of you know what is going on or how exactly you ended up here all you know is that you cannot get out you are locked inside and a giant black ball made of a strange metal you have never seen is opening up.

I have to put my hat into this one as I've read a majority of the manga and saw the anime.... Is it going to be free form or system?

For you freeform, for me system. :P Basically the choices you make all lead to a single roll to decide whether you die or not in each Gantz mission adventure, the system is incredibly simple when I know whether your charry lives or dies ill PM you and you rp it as you like to that point, I need the players to be willing to accept the fates of their charries I am hoping from that eventually we will get a hardcore crew together and create a really unique game here on Ell.

Well if we can make another character after the first one bites the dust that would be awesome.

Added Feature

If you play at least one normal/average character through at least two rounds of Gantz (Or play 2 characters who live through one round each) I will allow you to create a psychic or advanced martial artist. I will expect a more explained bio since none of those powers just spring on someone. However I need to see some very serious flaws in the powers to allow it.

For instance a telepath can easily lose concentration hear everyone and be left unconscious.
A pyrokinetic can only set one "target" aflame but it takes a great deal of concentration and if he loses that he sets himself on fire instead.

those are just a few examples.

I used to dig Gantz actually. You still looking for new players? If so do you have a summary of what has happened so far so I don't seem to be copying anyone.

We have just started the first "game" we have 5 characters all of them are posted above. I have designed it so that feeling of violent random death is prevelant, so its more about the experiance of gantz than the importance of the characters. I want charries to start out one dimensional, overly normal/boring working stiffs and Gantz shaping (Or killing) them becoming the center of their world.

That actually sounds pretty awesome. Are you intending for the rounds to last for a set time? Rr when it's during a game, should people have pretended to be playing along the whole time? I say this becuase of abscenses and newcomers (Like myself) who are joining mid game when there's that crucial time to suit up/get weapons before a game starts.
