Zaer's got the right idea, you'll notice that my tier 2 limit breaks both involve Rachael retaliating against something the enemy does, so perhaps your could be the same concept.

You mean limit break which works like a trap? Well his concern was that limit breaks should be bursts of action or adreanline mostly. But our demolist expert has time ticking bombs....so not sure would needle trap be okay or not. Perhaps if you make it so that when you use limit break then enemy's next attack towards you triggers it (so it's hastily made trap).

Yeah, this mostly. I don't mind if its a counter, or relies on the enemy to do something, but sitting down and setting up a trap just seem a bit too... passive.

Hey, if anybody's struggling for a limit break, I can help with creating 'em. Of course, you wouldn't need to use them as-is, just something to stimulate the creative juices.

Winds are starting to get heavy here. From what I'm hearing things aren't gonna get seriously bad until tomorrow, but I can't be certain how long power will stay up, so if you've got questions, ask them now!

I've edited the Needle Trap! It is now Stealth Strike! Anymore changes?

Name: Joshua Beckett
Age: 19
Gender: Male

Rank: Private First Class
Position: Melee

Weapon: Carries a longsword called "Bella." Also carries an array of poisoned senbon needles.
Bella
Materia:

 
Appearance
Backstory:
While Clive was learning about guns, Josh was taking various sword-fighting classes. Considered a prodigy at a very young age, he held his skills highly. Joshua never understood what the big deal was with guns. He always thought sword-fighting was better than fighting with guns because it was much more personal.

When Clive left for Shinra, it was around that time when Josh developed an interest in poisons and throwing needles, called senbon. He went to various experts, over a span of time, learning about different poisons and their uses. He taught himself how to throw the senbon and practiced with accuracy. He did this by hunting small, quick animals, like birds, rabbits and lizards. He then spread out the uses of the senbon by applying various poisons onto them, which enabled him to take down larger targets, like elk, deer and bears.

Out on a hunting trip, a bear ambushed him. Josh ran away from the bear. He suffered damages to his right eye, which had to be removed and replaced with a glass eye. Josh, however, covered this eye with an eye-patch, disliking how the glass eye looked like.

Josh eventually followed in his brother's footsteps, enlisting into Shinra. The Shinra command gladly took him and placed him in the field despite his injured eye, all thanks to his brother, Clive.

Joshua is intelligent, witty and funny in social environments and during combat situations, he is calm, decisive and strategic. Special expertise in guerilla warfare. 

Limit Breaks
1.1: Slash Bella comes down onto an opponent, slashing the torso
1.2: Needle Shower An array of needles gets thrown from higher ground to lower ground. The needles are tipped with poison.

2.1: Impale Bella impales an opponent, causing the target to bleed profusely.
2.2: Stealth Strike! Josh camouflages into his environment, moves around the target and strikes from behind, using either Bella or a poisoned barrage of senbon. 

3.1: Counterstrike! Attacks by swinging Bella at a targets critical locations: head, torso, legs.
3.2: Paralyzing Needle Josh throws a needle tipped with poison that does little damage, but inflicts Slow, Poison, Imperil, Pain, Daze, Deprotect, Deshell, and Defaith

4.1: Final Chance to Win! Buffs self with Bravera, Protectra, Shellra, Vigilance, and Haste. Targets up to two opponents and they both suffer a flurry of poisoned needles inflicting Poison, Slow, Pain and Deprotect. Targets one of the two, Slashes and Impales target.

Unfortunately not, as much as I like the idea, we're all full up right now. Thank you for your interest, though.

Edit: also, the limit breaks look fine now :o

I don't think so. Large games tend to stagnate and die easily.

Hmm, what would be a workable rank for a young Mighty Grunt? Is there a minimum rank necessary to pilot the suits?

I'd imagine they just train them to do that instead of/in addition to regular combat training, so it's probably just the same.

The worst of the storm's passed, but I might lose power again. Lots of people lost power around here, so they're still repairing, and there's still scattered storms and heavy winds.

But, while I do still have power... -reads posts-

I'm gonna say Sergeant would be good for her to be a new pilot. They're heavy and expensive, so I think they'd want potential pilots to prove their dedication and loyalty before giving them one. I don't think there's a set rank minimum, but Sergeant seems like a good spot.

Yeah, that was my last one.

I'd love to accept more people, but I'm really trying to keep this one smaller.

Also, I apologize in advance, but there might be a delay before I can actually start this rp, as there's a hurricane hitting my area (Long Island, New York) in the next few days that will most likely knock out my power for at least a few days. I've managed to luck out with the power situation before, but I'm not really counting on that happening this time. I will try to get this up and running ASAP once the storm's clear, but just be warned that you might need a little patience before we get this one running.

There's no need for that.

If you want to drop out, I'd appreciate if you did so now. But if you want to keep playing, I'm more than happy to have you.

And yeah, I'll try to get it up soon, just let me recover from this hurricane first xD

Just another quick question: Should my official position be called Pilot? Since yeah, she pilots a Mighty Grunt suit, but I figure she'd also be checked out on piloting those little personnel carrier trucks and stuff as well?

Hmmm... not sure. I mean, mecha armor is fairly different than a truck or a helicopter or something. Though she could definitely drive a car or truck or stuff, but just because she has the ability to pilot a Mighty Grunt doesn't necessarily qualify her to pilot anything.

I figured it would give her a more concrete 'role' in the unit other than just piloting a grunt suit. You know, like there's a Demolitions man, and a Medic. Wouldn't Pilot be an acceptable role for her?

Edit: All that's left is deciding on any cosmetic tweaks to her Mighty Grunt suit (That she can get away with), copy-pasting my background, and deciding on her limit breaks! So I'm gonna grab some breakfast! lol
