Front Mission: Retribution of Jericho [OPEN!]
« on: August 05, 2012, 12:10:14 AM »



Original Post: This is an interest check for a Front Mission-based RP. For those unfamiliar with the series, it takes place in a future where 'wanzers' (mechs, from the German word, 'wanderpanzer', walking tank) are common place. Wanzers are used for civil, construction, and military purposes. They come in a variety of types, from spider-legged to hovering to bipedal, all the way up to absolutely enormous city-wrecking superweapons. Each is usually highly customized by it's pilot, outfitted with different weapons and settings based on combat ability and personal preference. The world is rife with conflict, especially between the OCU (Oceanaia Community Union; Japan, Australia, southeast Asia) and the USN (United Continental States/United States of New Continent; USA, Canada, South America). So, naturally, the players in this little story will be from both of these nations (anywhere in the world, really) as a crisis threatens the entire world and forces everyone into cooperation to confront a larger threat to global peace. For now this is just an interest check, so I'm looking for people who're up for a good 'ol time piloting giant robots. Knowledge of the series is not necessary.

Syopsis: The year is 2092. Mechs now fight on the front lines alongside infantry, tanks, and other weapons of war. Called 'Wanzers' (from the German word, 'wanderpanzer', walking tank), these machines are common enough to be used for both civilian and military purposes. Wanzer pilots often customize their mechs down to the tiniest detail based on personal preference and fighting style. Technology in the field is rapidly advancing and often, such advances (and the resources that create them) are responsible for conflict. A new conflict is about to be born, the result of advancing technology, greed, and revenge.

Jericho Durai, born in the OCU, was raised in a secret government facility that was developing super soldiers in secret. Wildly expensive and hardly successful (9 out of 10 candidates went insane or died of mysterious causes), the project was scrapped and the living soldiers were disposed of. Or so the OCU thought. Jericho survived and made it to the USN, a rival supernation. Hell bent on revenge against his tormentors, he vowed to use his skills to destroy the OCU. Little did he know that treachery cares little for borders. Durai was increasingly unstable and, though he met with success in a number of missions for the USN, he was deemed a risk and abandoned by his team mid-mission, left to die. Twice betrayed, the remains of Jericho's sanity snapped and he vowed revenge against both the USN and OCU; this time, however, he would do it on his terms. With his own army. With his own wanzers. With his own hands. Now, all the data on the OCU's super soldier program is missing and a top secret wanzer prototype has been stolen.

Jericho Durai has just announced his demands: Blood for blood.

I played the hell out of the first front mission on my SNES Emulator and again with the translated version for the DS. (Also Gun hazard if that counts :P) Haven't played the newer ones, but I'd love to be in a FM RP.

Oh man, oh man, oh man! Oh oh! I have GOT to be in on this! I so totally love Front Mission.

Likely going to play a Zaftran Mercenary of some sort.

Question! Do we have to play a generic mech, or can we customize bits and bobs from the ones you listed? I.E. Suppose I wanted a Grapple Body, Kyojun arms, and Calm legs?

Also, any restrictions on weapons use? Should we try to stick to typical roles, or would a missile using machine gunner be okay?

Stick to the 'generic' mechs, no mixing and matching. Reasons for not having fully custom mechs will be explained in-game. You can pick whichever weapons you like, though sticking to the archetypes makes more in-game sense. Just don't overload it and give it one of everything.

Pilot Info:
-Name: Rudvitch, Dimitri, "Habar" (Russian slang, means "treasure" "loot" or "swag")
-Rank: OMON officer
-Age: 31
Gender: M
-Ht: 70 inches
-Wt: 220 lbs

Appearance: Dimitri posing with an AS VAL sniper rifle


Bio: Dimitri comes from a long line of Spetsnaz (His father and grandfather both bearing this title), and while he was interested in pursuing such a career, he ultimately ended up in OMON, a counter-terrorist organization, in its Wanzer division. Because of the fact he is in OMON, most of his civilian records are blacked out; nobody really knows who or what he is. Zaftra, even when it was once Russia, has had a habit of creating "ghosts" like him. However, he was born in Moscow.

A natural with a rifle, he had initial difficulty with the Wanzer pilot training, but managed to prevail. He has been assigned this mission to represent Zaftra as a sniper specialist. Because of part of his training, he has been conditioned against traditional forms of torture, as well as being well versed in how to pry information out of people... off the books, of course. As an OMON officer, he has personally been in four actual Wanzer battles in his entire life.

He hates the state of his country, how it rots and is on the verge of failure. He does not blame the EC, like many, however; he knows that they're just doing what is best for them. Rather, his hatred is directed more towards the old fools in his own country, who let pride or a fear of new ventures keep them bound to an outdated approach. He does not approve of optimism or idealism, nor childishness. He is a cold, harsh realist, and many have often times described him as a bitter cynic.  His strictness in all aspects of life is just a byproduct of his training, and is very common amongst his fellow OMON agents.

Skills: Long distance weapons (Sniper rifles, bazookas, missiles), recon, interrogation, interrogation resistance,  human sized sniper rifles.

Wanzer Info:
-Type: Vyzov (Urban camo colors, has an OMON emblem on the shoulders)
-Weapons: Glowtusk (Sniper rifle)
-Backpack: BP-S02
-Items:
RF ammo MAX
Remove All
Repair 200 (2x)

OMON emblem

It's been awhile since I've played any of the games.  Can snipers use missles as well as their usual rifles?

Yes, though in this game you can only equip one missile pod, where as someone who's playing a dedicated missiler could equip, say, two and a grenade launcher.

The bio could use just a little more and the formatting needs some work. Too many line breaks. Other than that, s'okay with me.

Pilot Info
-Name: Olliver, Andrew, "Albein"
-Rank: E-8 or First Sergeant
-Age: 27
Gender: Male
-Ht: 67 inches
-Wt: 187

Appearance: Andrew

Bio: Born and raised in the USN, Andrew was always a cocky kind of person. From when he was a little kid doing the dares other kids would give him all the way up to high school and beyond when he would always aim to take out the bigger man, Andrew grew up being a sort of risk-taker. It was no surprise to everyone when he joined the USN armed forces, thinking it would give him the rush he seemed to yearn, and indeed it did. As a common soldier Andrew was always nominated by his CO to do the most dangerous of tasks, establishing explosives, demolishing hostile weapon stockpiles, ...all the tasks that seemed to fuel his need for adrenaline. His all-or-nothing attitude eventually saw him promoted numerous times, being told "only a soldier who is willing to sacrifice everything, can be victorious," and he was eventually granted the honor of piloting a wanzer. Even when behind the controls of a wanzer Andrew displays his cocky nature in the actions that he does, but his weapon loadouts are always on the explosive side of things with at least a grenade launcher in the sortie.

Skills: Observation, Demolition,  and precision marksmanship

Wanzer Info
-Type: Calm
-Weapons: Type 82 (grenade launcher)
Piz 3 x2 (Missles, both shoulder)
RP5-Interlude (repair pack)

Here you go Hanged, this is a little more visually pleasing;

Well if you wish I can switch mine over with ease, one sniper is enough for the squad and I wouldn't mind switching at all. Besides, IMO, assault's can be a little more fun than a sniper.
