Original Characters only, most likely. ^0^
Also, I'm kicking around some ideas as far as what we could be going for or what the over all goal of the roleplay is.
Recently, I've been wanting to write a story with things based upon the Chinese Zodiac.
With that being said (And take into consideration this DOES NOT HAVE TO HAPPEN so I don't want it to kill interest in the game. >.>) I was thinking that our little band of pirates would be from the North or West Blue, and are known as the Zodiac Pirates.
They have something special about them, and that each member (Not starting out but eventually) has a Mythic Zoan level Devil fruit, each based upon an Animal of the Chinese Zodiac and displaying some sort of powers that matches up with that Animal.
These would be known as Star Animals, or, for example, Inu Inu No Mi: Model Hoshi Inu, or Dog Dog Fruit: Model Star Dog, which gives the user not only the traits of a dog (Enhanced smell, hearing, etc) but also a much longer life, 7 times that of a normal...whatever they are. (User could be a Fishman, Giant, what have you) (Average lifespan of this fruit user, if human, is 75x7, So 525 years), and....something else. (Specifics can come in later, this is just an example)
Our Roleplay would be about them starting out on a Journey to find these legendary fruits, already being in posession of One or Two, as it's said if all Twelve are brought together the crew who manages to do so will have untold riches and sway over the entire world.
Just....a thought. T-T Please tell me if you hate it... T0T
