My First Year At Beacon Academy - [RWBY Game, Interest Check]
« on: November 02, 2015, 01:13:54 PM »

Students with the aspiration to become Huntsmen, whose duty is to keep the peace within the world, strive to attend Beacon. Huntsmen and Huntresses are warriors dedicated to slay the creatures of Grimm. These creatures of Grimm, as they are called, are beings of pure evil and destruction. They are made of pure malice and lack a soul and are often drawn to feelings of negativity and hate. The Grimm are said to have appeared soon after the dawn of mankind. They have targeted early Humans for as long as can be remembered, seeking to destroy them and all of their creations. At first, it seemed as though they would succeed, as Humans did not have the strength to fight them. However, Humans discovered the power of Dust; and with it, the Grimm were driven back. Huntsmen and women dedicate their lives to fighting these creatures and protecting their world, Remnant, as a whole. Beacon Academy is a legendary school, one of the finest combat academies in the kingdom of Vale, perhaps the world. Long have you aspired to walk it's hallowed halls and that chance has finally arrived. You and other aspiring young men and women will attend Beacon Academy. Some of you will pass, some of you will fail, but all of you will give every fiber of your being to become a Huntsman.






Introduction: Welcome! This is a RWBY-based game. Don't know what that is? RWBY (pronounced 'ruby') is an anime/CGI series by Monty Oum and Rooster Teeth. The story is as above; in the world of Remnant and the kingdom of Vale exists Beacon Academy, a school that trains Huntsmen. These Huntsmen uphold peace in the world and hunt down 'Creatures of Grimm', dark beings of malice and evil that seek to exterminate humans. These students are aided by their own skills, weapons that often transform between melee and a firearm, and 'Dust', a magical energy source. Additionally, students also have an 'Aura' and a 'Semblance'. An Aura is a manifestation of one's souls and, with enough practice, anyone with a soul can use it to enhance their defense, offense, or healing capabilities. Aura is different from person to person and the ability of that person. A Semblance is a more physical manifestation of this Aura. It also varies from individual to individual and usually has something to do in relation to the user's personality. For example, the hot-headded might find themselves able to channel fire, or use their rage to enhance their strength to extreme levels. Those that use Semblance are able to manipulate certain physical phenomena according to the nature of their power. Some individuals are able to use their Semblance to create glyphs that generate some desired effect. Others are able to move at incredible speeds, while still others can manipulate magnetic forces. Hopefully that wasn't too overwhelming. Basically; you have a lot of ways to personalize and customize your character! You, along with the others, will be new students at Beacon Academy and be subjected to all the classes, tests, missions, friendships and rivalries that aspiring Huntsmen and women must undergo. Expect socialization, character development, classes, missions, and maybe a little romance. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. If you're interested, please fill out a character sheet. As always, thank you for reading this.

Name: Lark Enciel
Age: 17
Sex: Female
Orientation: Bisexual
Height: Short
Weight: Athletic

Personality: She might very well have some form of ADHD. Lark wants to do something, anything, all. The. Time. She hates being cooped up indoors and prefers to be able to roam on her own. This will certainly clash with her desire to be a Huntress and kick serious ass. Even when she's standing still she's tapping her foot. She is a huge fan of competition and always gives everything one hundred percent. She hates to lose. Lark also knows that she's pretty damn talented and has let that go to her head a bit; she is convinced of her own greatness and that she will become the best Huntress that Remnant has ever known. Knocking her down a peg every so often might be good for her. While, as stated above, she appears self-centered, it is only over minor things. When it comes to things that matter and are of utmost importance, she is one of the most selfless friends you could ever have. Loyalty to one's friends is a matter of grave importance, perhaps even pride, for Lark. Pushing around one of her friends will bring down her wrath like nothing else.

Background: Lark was born and raised in the kingdom of Atlas, where she was the daughter of a mid-level robotics engineer named Roy Enciel and a communications specialist named Beverly Enciel. Both parents, like many in Atlas, were fascinated with technology. Lark's parents, more than most, were almost obsessed with the possibility of removing humans from the battlefield and from the fight against the Grimm. They dreamed of a world where automatons could wage man's wars for him and no human ever need be harmed again. That dream, sadly, is still quite far off. As is their dream of having Lark follow in their footsteps. She was never any good at studying, much less leaning complex robotics or engineering. Lark could barely make toast without setting the entire house ablaze. "Are you sure she's your daughter?" was something strangers often said to Roy and Beverly. Lark's interests always leaned to the more physical side of things. She was always running, playing sports, or getting into fights at school and was once even suspended for hoisting a known bully up on a flagpole by his underpants. This feat made her a hero, briefly, until the boy's underpants ripped and he fell, breaking his leg. Then it was slightly less heroic. Lark's parents pressured her for years to study in their field, but would often enter their daughter's room to find her miming punches from some old kung fu movie or dancing to some new music video.

Eventually, they gave up and Lark started to realize she was going to disappoint the two most important people in her life. So, after some pleading, she convinced them to let her apply to Beacon academy. Agreeing, Lark's parents tutored her on engineering and this time she actually paid attention. When it came time to craft her own weapon at Signal Academy, Lark managed to do so - without injuring herself or others. A minor miracle. Once that rough patch was out of the way, Lark actually passed the rest of the warrior training with flying colors and was off to Beacon. Her journey has just begun.

Combat Style: Lark fights with a self-taught style of martial arts that is like Lark herself; overly flashy and showy, with the overblown exterior hiding something surprising. She fights with fists and feet, using her hands and arms to deflect attacks and her legs to administer powerful counter blows. She mixes these martial arts moves with break dancing. There is quite literally no other practitioner of this insanity in the entirety of Remnant. Lark basically develops it as she goes along and sometimes just makes things up on the spot. She has yet to come up with a name for it. For it's showy nature, though, it can often catch opponents off-guard as they try to figure out how to react to blows that arrive with little to no tell. These skills combine wonderfully with her weapon; a pair of boots enhanced with Atlas tech that allow the heels to fire powerful shotgun blasts. These 'Cloud Kickers', as she calls them, can punch holes in almost any Grimm at close range and are even powerful enough to propel Lark herself into the air.

Semblance: Lark can manipulate her own weight. While this does not affect her physically (ie; it won't make her fat or rail thin), it will affect how easy she is to move. She can make herself almost lighter than air and allow herself to achieve running speed almost unmatched, or do the opposite, making herself heavy enough to nearly sink into the ground. Using this creatively, Lark can add extra force to her blows by making herself heavier, or dodge attacks and move quickly by making herself lighter.

OH I would be most interested in this as well, loved the series and waiting for season three. I have a good idea for a character as well but having trouble in how to determine his ability's. The idea is he would train his body to be very fast and high agility while his weapon (a katana) when it strikes would hit as if a thousand ton hammer or something in that way. In other words the weapon would make up for his lack of straight by giving the powerful blows while using his speed to deliver them faster. Or his weapon use dust much like how Weiss does, I doubt I could do both in that way however with what I just put down could anyone give me some ideas of how I can work this out?

I'd stay away from a katana, as I've already got a profile PM'd to me that uses that weapon. And speed as well, since that's a subset of Lark's power. If you need ideas for a semblance, you could do what I did and go to Superpower Wiki and click 'random page' until something interesting comes up.

Well, time to hit Netflix/whatever site has RWBY so I can watch a few episodes and figure out what I'm doing, cause I want in on this. But since I'm at work right now and watching TV at work is slightly frowned upon (video games? Fine. Netflix? Fuck you), do Auras and Semblances have common ways of manifesting? Basically how do people figure out "oh, you have superpowers!"

http://rwby.wikia.com/wiki/Aura

Everything with a soul can use Aura. It's a commonly known thing and only requires combat training to utilize. While all Auras function basically the same (ie; granting defense, strength, or healing), the color they manifest as and how they manifest varies from person to person. Some people have trouble manifesting it, some are naturals. Aura strength varies from individual to individual. If you want to think about it in video game terms, pretend you're Master Chief and the Aura is your shields, taking hits for you before you really start to get hurt. The more you use it, the more it degrades until you have a period to recover.

http://rwby.wikia.com/wiki/Semblance

A Semblance is like a more personal, powerful version of that. So to speak. It is a more physical manifestation of your character's soul. A Semblance is truly individual. The character Yang, for example, has a Semblance that makes her stronger every time she takes a hit. It also manifests itself in the form of a fiery aura around her and turns her irises red when in use.

And here's an example of the weapons in RWBY.

Name: Celeste Baya (Light Blue Berry.)
Age: 17
Sex: Female
Orientation: Bisexual
Height: Average, 5' 6"
Weight: Average

Personality: A bit of a slacker through and through, Celeste is just as likely to be found taking a nap on the battlefield as actually fighting. Celeste is also not one to miss a meal or snack, going out of her way to slaughter all enemies in her path if there is food involved. She loves the water, but hates the cold, as is usual with her Faunus heritage. She also hates bugs and most kinds of strenuous work, though she'll certainly do it given enough motivation.

Background: Hailing from Mistral, Celeste is a blue 'dragon' reptile Faunus, a species that is slightly rare, though not unheard of. She grew up around other Faunus children, segregated from the human population of Mistral, at least while she was a child. This lead to a distrust of humans, though not an outright hatred like some Faunus.  Slowly this segregation stopped, however, and she attended Haven Academy at a young age. before being moved to Beacon at age 17 due to her family moving to Vale. While in Vale she met members of the White Fang in person after only hearing about them in the dark corners of Mistral, and soundly denounced them as nothing more than terrorist group, though she did sympathize with their members given her childhood.

With her transference to Beacon, Celeste hopes to become a top-notch huntress precisely so that she can be as lazy as she desires. Being a huntress means freedom, and while she'd certainly like to step up and take the reigns of a noble 'dragon' who presides over other Faunus and stands as a paragon of her race....in reality she just wants to end all conflicts and make the world a safe place to take a nap in, though a goal of safety for the world just so that she can be lazy afterwards isn't really that bad of a goal, or so she thinks.

Combat Style: Celeste uses a Mechanical Katana with a sheath that is able to supercharge the blade with Dust, as well as make it sharper. The Katana blade is a high frequency blade, vibrating to the point of being able to cut through most things. The Sheath and Katana can also Transform, combining into a spear or transforming together into a heavy longbow that has to be braced against the ground. All of her weapons are also Water-proof.

She is also excellent at combat in the water, given her Faunus heritage, and can even breath underwater, easily able to move and flit about thanks to her tail.

Overall Celeste is a strong combatant, when she chooses to fight.

Semblance:
Celeste's Semblance is called "Domain". With a snap of her fingers she can expand a sphere outward to 30 feet by 30 Feet that becomes an impassable barrier. Attacks can neither enter nor leave her domain, and concentration is not required to maintain her barrier, though her Aura is slowly consumed.

The real use for her Semblance, however, is when she concentrates and expends even more Aura. By using up 1/4th of her Aura, Celeste can create a special sphere within which she has control over everything that happens within. She can redirect attacks, raise and lower the ground, shift and control gravity within the area of effect, and even shift herself and others around the area via Teleportation. This use of her Semblance is on a 5 minute time limit, however, and using it too much will lead to her exhausting all of her Aura and becoming extremely fatigued.  If she were to actually practice with her semblance, she may be able to push the time limit further, but Celeste hasn't been inclined to try.

Alright here is an idea then, the weapons I be using is a dual set of large desert eagles that together change into an rifle for long range. The guns use dust to enhanced the bullets depending of what color and have different effects. Red is a little more like getting hit with a shotgun, blue is that each shot when hit would turn the body into ice, such as if shot the leg it would coat that part of the leg into ice, say shot like two or three times the leg would be in a layer of ice. For the other two colors I have yet to decide and need some ideas for it. However when changed into the rifle mode the effect of the dust bullets are enhance to greater effects. So like for the ice one, one shot could cover the whole body other then the head in a layer of ice.

For a Semblance I have no name for it as of yet but I was thinking it be a very strong illusions to the point they seem very much real. think of it as if I were to make a illusion wall of fire. You would believe you feel the heat from it and everything that make it seem real to you, however if you were to touch it or go though it you would feel fine. Something like that if that made sense? It is also use to look like other people that my character have seen, even able to mimic other people's voice. So what do you think would this be alright?

Sure, Kalive, that sounds fine. The only suggestion I'd make is changing his semblance so he can only make copies of himself and not others. Other players might not like you 'playing' their character, so to speak, even if it is a copy. Other than that it sounds workable.

Name: Olive Hemsworth
Age: 17
Sex: Male
Orientation: Straight
Height: 6'1
Weight: Thin, kind of a bean pole.

Personality: Serious. Olive takes what he is doing here very seriously, and intends to learn to be the best. He's not a jerk, but he takes being a hunter seriously. He's more likely to spend his free time practicing then lazing about. He does recognize that relaxation is necessary, though he prefers to do it with a book. He has a hidden passion for drama, and will often hide what he is reading with another, more... serious book. Olive has a lot to live up to, and does not intend to fail. Nevertheless, he is nice enough if you approach him in the right way, and will help those around him develop their skills freely.

Background: Olive was born in Vale, the child of two Hunters, both known for being skilled Hunters. His father, Charcoal, raised him after his mother died shortly after his younger sister, Aqua was born. Charcoal was often gone for long periods, leaving Olive and Aqua first with a series of watchers, then with Olive being left responsible for his sister. He didn't mind. Olive idolizes Charcoal, and counted the days till he could enter Beacon Academy, devouring tales of Hunter's exploits with an eager eye. He has entered Beacon intending to be the best. Not by tearing down others around him, but by rising above them. In fact, he fully intends to build up his class, to make him better. He has adopted his mother's fighting style, Halberd and Shield, something that causes Charcoal more then a little disquiet. Olive's semblance has done nothing to reduce that worry, as Charcoal fears it may make his son foolhardy. However, there is little sign of that yet, Olive showing the same seriousness as always.

Combat Style: Olive is deceptively strong, and uses his height and reach to his full advantage. He uses armor, layered metal plates, preferring to be able to take a blow when it comes down to it, and push through it to strike at his foe. He is slower then many hunters because of this, but his resilience is undoubtable. His weapons support this. It is a a Halberd and a massive shield capable of withstanding any blow. It transforms into a massive Ballista, firing Bolts almost as long as one of Olive's legs. The shield provides the arms of the crossbow, and the Halberd provides the central shaft to launch the bolts. Olive's preferred combat style is to engage from long range, and then if his foe closes, absorb the first rush and strike at a weakpoint from within the Grim's reach.

Semblance: Olive's semblance is regeneration. Wounds slough off the young man, pairing well with his fighting style. Bruises and cuts can be healed with a mere thought. Broken bones and serious gashes may take longer. Olive speculates he might be able to go so far as replacing a severed limb, but he's never had a chance to try. He cannot do this indefinitely, as each healing takes effort, drawing from his reserves of energy, but if Olive isn't put down in one blow, don't count on him staying down.

He looks mostly fine but, again, I'd stay away from swords. I'd like as little overlap as possible between characters.  If you want him to be defense oriented, why not a mace and shield instead? The mace could transform into a firearm of some kind, or utilize Dust in some fashion.

Largely because a Mace doesn't work really well with the strike at the Weak points thing. The way a Mace works, it distributes its blow across an area. A spear would work, but Wolfy's character's weapon is a spear as well. I'm trying to come up with something that works with that idea that isn't one of those two, but thrusting weapons that aren't a Sword or Spear are in short supply.

What about a halbred? It's different enough from just a regular spear. Or perhaps a mattock-type weapon? I would also consider a rapier different enough, as it's at least not another curved sword and is a thrusting weapon instead of a slashing one.
