Okay, so I tried this idea out once a few months back and it kinda crashed on take-off. However, I'm still into the whole idea of an RP in which characters explore the wide world of One Piece, mix-matching devil fruits and allegiances to create our very own story. This time, I'll try to be a bit more prepared. Now at episode
643 now, I am starting to get a good knowledge as to what people will eventually want to get to. I honestly dont really know how to go around forming the crew and such, I'm still open to ideas. However, I am aware that there's gonna have to be a common goal, a struggle in the beginning to tie everyone together for a proper lift-off. I invite anyone who's actually interested in creating this world with me to post interest and even start forming out characters.
I entice detail, description and some amounts of dedication, as I do not wish this one to flop like the last one. I'd expect in the bare minimum, a post every week, or warning will come. After 3 warnings (One will be sent after 7 days of inactivity and so forth), your character will either be ignored, placed on 'auto-pilot' (someone will take over until your return), or, in the case of abuse/too many warnings/exceed 6 weeks of inactivity, your character will be archived or even killed. Terms can be discussed. Posting amounts should sum to a good 3 paragraphs, preferably. 5 full sentences per paragraph doesnt sound too torturous.
Now, for the story, ideas are still up in the air. But we can outline scenarios that we might like to follow.
- Bar Bust:
A group of pirates cause trouble in a bar-full of rowdy misfits, some with large bounties, some with bad pasts with the Marines, state your story. It was al fun and games until a bad crowd mixes in and turns the fun into a wild fight; the opportunity the Marines had been waiting for to crash the party. With the white caps flooding the place and capturing anyone who had pile of money over his head, the lucky runners depart in different directions, causing mayhem on their path to slow their pursuers before ducking into a hide-out, where they all bunker down for the rest of the night, until things simmer down. With a crazy night and a nice social rest, the new party depart on a fresh start for adventure
(Its pretty much the first scenario, or what it would have been. Shame things died before they actually got exciting)
- Clashing Crews:
It isnt common for pirates to cross each other's paths and take each other down. This was no different. 2 crews clash ships in a fight on the open seas. With recognizable bounties on both sides, each desire to take the other down and reap the spoils. The victor ends up tangled into a mess with opposing enemies, having made more than one enemy that day without their knowledge. As things culminate, the crew decides to take matter in their own hands and see the source of all the problem and end it once and for all.
- A Wild Stranger Appears?!:
Simple concept, a stranger with a devil fruit on him washes unto the shore, unconscious. Upon his awakening, the man has no memory apart from his name. After searching through his things to find a clue to jog his memory, he decides to eat the fruit from hunger, forgetting what said fruit was. Along with the crazy ride of learning to use his brand new powers, the man sets on the quest to find his memory back. (Possibility of involving him in troubles of nearby citizens and forming new alliances and friendships)
You are free to share ideas you have for your character with everyone. The story isnt only decided by myself, it's everybody's decision. It's really up to everyone to decide what they really feel like doing. Because that's how a pirate crew works
Simple enough, dont be shy to spritz up your profile, but remember to keep it in a spoiler so it saves page space. Here's a short description of what to put in/how much to put in.Appearance
: Obvious... An image that gives the closest idea to what you want people to see your character as. If there are any differences from the image, write them under itCharacter Name
: Is that Captain Obvious? Nicknames written after the name, in quotation marks. Age
: Thank you Captain Obvious, you can go home now.Sexuality
: What attracts your character? Male, female? Both? Okama?Ability/Power/Weapon/Fighting Capabilities
: Anything that related to fighting or special abilities that make you different from a normal random citizen should be mentioned here. If there are special moves that might be a game-changer, it should be here. If you're a zoan type, a good description of your forms and what you can do that is different from other forms is demanded. Logia is almost a wild-card, as they have control over their given form and can do a lot of things. Well, we wanna know that. A small description of different styles you use with your logia will be mentioned here. Paramecia is probably a more simple one, as their abilities tend to be less complex and flamboyant. But same rule applies. You use Haki, swords, flying harpoons, mantra, some other form of special huzzah? It's gotta be here or you cant do it.Personality
: Keywords or phrases to describe what kind of person your character is. Lets try and stay away from repetitive characters; there's a huge variety of personalities to choose from so dont be shy to be original. History
: A few paragraphs to give us a good idea of what your character went through, so we know they were thought out and constructed.Quirks/Other
: Likes? Dislikes? Phobias? Pet Peeves? Anything you think that will make your character more the way you want it to be that wasnt mentioned earlier should be mentioned here. This section is rather optional and more for the fun facts. If you got a theme song? Put it here.
