Sounds good to me. We can always have the Kaiju poke into the Jaeger's head and have a mid-fight snack if someone doesn't post after a week or something.
I'd give them longer than a week and actually pm them before killing their character off. Character kill off should only be used in extreme cases, in my opinion. NPCing their character for at least a couple of weeks first is always best.

Better ideas than mine. Please excuse my brashness, I'm a bit too willing to have us all die heroic deaths.  ;)

On a side note, I may be thinking too far ahead but when using our Jaegers, will we be able to use the already established names like Chrome Brutus/Solar Prophet and attach them to unrelated machines?

And a side benefit of the Player 1- Kaiju-Player 2-Kaiju rotation, as opposed to the Player 1-Player 2-Kaiju-Player 1-Player 2-Kaiju rotation is that if Player 2 suddenly stops posting, Player 1 can just take all the Jaeger actions, and if they're not back by the time the fight is over/the next fight is started, they can be dropped and replaced.

Yeah. The remaining player can decide if he or she will shoulder the neural load alone or NPC the actions of the other half. Keeps it interesting either way.

I'll be playing a female and can play bi, straight, or lesbian. 

I could play a gay or straight male, I just usually don't on E because of the possibility of sexual content and my inexperienced playing males beyond flirting and kissing.

Rev, you wanna partner with me since we know each other?

Works for me.

I'm willing to play either gender of any orientation, so I'd be willing to just wait and see what other people do first. And I'm agreeable with the ideas stated so far about people who disappear, though if we do go for an in-fight death at any point, remember, only two Rangers were ever able to control a Jaeger solo. :P

*nods* I was thinking about that too, and one of them was left with problems because of it.

What country did you wanna be from?

Nuts. I forgot about the only two rangers ever thing. Also, this may be handy for you guys.

http://pacificrim.wikia.com/wiki/Shatterdome List of Shatterdomes and their brief descriptions. I don't know how close to canon we want to stick, but this has the locations and jurisdictions. ... On that note, I wonder if we should all be based on the same base? We do have eight people, and if we're all Rangers then that's four Jaegers. I think we could stretch it for one base to hold all of us, to let people interact with each other regularly.

No.

Good idea. I rather like being based in Australia. Opinions?

On another note, CS is in OP. Also people might enjoy:

You can use the above to design Jaegers! Its a touch basic, but you know.

I'd vote for Los Angeles, mainly cause MURICA. :-) I'm not ardent about it though, the only Shatterdome I don't think I'd enjoy would be Anchorage. Too cold.

Worth noting that Hong Kong, Anchorage, Vladivostok, and Sydney each hosted at least one canon Jaeger from the movie, so if we want to really tell our own story without the 'hero' Jaegers looming over us, going somewhere else could be to benefit.

I'm fine with any country, Ember.

And I'm leaning toward LA or Tokyo if we don't want the main four to interfere.

I can't recall the last time I did an RP in Tokyo. I'll amend my vote to Australia as my prime, second Tokyo.

On another note, randomised Ranger pairings incoming.

Not Anchorage or Vladivostok for the same reasons as Glyphstone - too cold! I don't think there will be much fun things to do outside the base either. If we do go to Australia, I don't think we'll have to worry about Striker Eureka's achievements running around ours as it was deployed November 2019, and our story begins in 2018. Plus, we don't have to be from Australia ourselves and it could be fun being tourists having to protect the Sydney Opera House.

I vote for Australia or Tokyo!

Teams are up in the OP, if people want to switch or organise something different just let me know.
Votes for Shatterdome location also in.

Sydney would be fun and different, but I'm kinda leaning towards Tokyo because I like Japan and the whole "cannon interference" thing. Either way, I'm leaning towards an Asian character. Although I've never played Asian outside of anime settings o.o

I'll put down a vote for both locations, as two votes appears to be how it unfolded. Tokyo is currently in the lead, with Australia & America tying in second.

I might want to be on a different team then PalidanZenaku's. He only seemed to ask one question in the thread and hasn't had another post in it. In other words, it makes me question if he's actually showing interest to join.

Fair point. We'll give it a little time to see if he confirms one way or another, we'll continue recruitment regardless and if he doesn't get involved we'll put the next person to join on your team to replace Palidan.

Well, at least I have a good guarantee my partner won't vanish...or if they do, it means the whole thing is over anyways. :D


EDIT: Oh, and to obliquely try and make a case for LA, Onibaba did wreck the crap out of Tokyo in 2016, a few years before current-day. So whether it's a good choice or not depends on how much off-base activity we want to be doing...I don't doubt there are people still living there, but it's likely still devastated to some degree.

So Japan has pumped out pretty sweet fan-art of Pacific Rim. Quite a few involving cool redesigns or originals that I think would fit the RP as designs we could use for Jaegers. Click the image for the link to the original art, and click again there for higher resolutions.



#1 - SuwaLake Rim by Zounose.


#2 - Pacific Rim by sys.


#3 - KNIFEHEAD Level5!! by 珍緑@C84日曜M-43a委託.

He'll be here. I'm with him in another RP, and he's quite reliable there.

Excellent. On another hand I'd advise Drift-Partners to start PM-ing to work on coming up with a Jaeger.

When you are considering which Mark you want your Jaeger, later models will likely be faster/stronger, but the older models will have more experienced pilots and (likely) Kaiju kills.
