Heavy Metal (looking for all)
« on: June 26, 2010, 12:40:56 PM »
One of the most iconic movies for adult-based science fiction and fantasy was Heavy Metal, which was itself based on the adult illustrated magazine.  It consisted of several short stories that ranged from horror to post apocalyptic fantasy and everything in between.  Each story was linked to the others through an overarching plot, which revolved around the source of all evil:  The Locknar, a glowing green globe.

This is checking to see if there's any interest in getting a group together to do rps of any and all kinds, linked together by the appearance of the Locknar and how it's dealt with.  All setting and genres and pairings work for this, since heavy Metal Magazine runs the whole gamut of ideas.

In general each thread would be it's own self-contained story, with a definite end-point; however, characters could freely jump to new stories, across genres and the like.  Perhaps the old-west gunslinger falls through a rift in time and space and finds himself in the middle of a futuristic war after dealing with the Locknar, only to find that it has once again entered his life.  Or maybe the Amazonian warrioress wakes up to find herself trapped on an alien planet at the Locknar's bidding.

There are countless possibilities.

Players would need a pic of their characters (or some good description), and maybe even some theme music for them.  A short background, including name, gender, sexuality, genre, as well as personality and history would also be helpful.


Example of Character:



Name:  Claudius Rhavion
Gender:  Male
Sexuality:  Straight
Genre:  Science-Fantasy

Personality:  Enigmatic and quiet, Claudius is a man who laughs little.  His thoughts are usually kept hidden, and he tends to digress when he speaks, his mind always working on three or more topics.  He can be personable if he tries.

History:  Born as a serf under the rule of the Technocratic Dominance, Claudius grew up in an almost feudal society where the ruling class possess technology comparable to our own current level, but the lower classes are not allowed to even handle it.  Glittering research labs can be found next to field still plowed with horses; warriors in armour are led by officers with machine-guns;  techno-shamans use modern medicines and a good deal of showmanship to treat ills.

Claudius is tired of the way his people are treated and has joined a rebellion against the Dominance, seeking to make their wondrous technologies available to everyone.

So, anyone interested?

I actually watched this movie on Netflix a while back and it kicked ass.  I'm game since my Megaman RP seems to have bit the dust before it ever got off the ground lol.  I'm a fantasy nut but I do sci fi from time to time, so this would be right up my alley.  Tell me, are these all Original characters or will you allow canon as well?  I'm just asking before I pull any of my old favorites lol.

Sounds like it could be fun.

Any character that you can think of is perfect, since between the movies and the magazine every genre has been covered (or at least the vast majority of them).  The only requirement for the stories is that they must interact with and find some way to deal with the Locknar.



That said, I realize that the subject it pretty broad, so I'll throw this out there:  Do people want a certain number of pre-made settings, or does everyone want to create their own between them and their partner(s)?

Either way works for me and I'll get a character up momentarily.  I just hope this gets up and moving because it shows a lot of promise.

Appearance; 

Name:  Soki, Oni of the Ash
Race; Onimusha/human
Gender: Male
Sexuality:  Straight
Genre:  Fantasy/horror depending on your definition
Personality:  Honorable and not afraid to face off against even the might of a God.  With his sword in hand, Soki, or Hideyasu of the Toyotomi Clan carves his own destiny as he sees fit.
History:  "One has fallen, without realizing the final hope.  One has fallen clinging to
his fate.  One has fallen leaving the fate of the future to his companions. 
History is riddled with the waves of destruction and rebirth.  These waves roll
onward far into the future.  Much has been destroyed.  Many have perished."

When the Age of Warring States finally came to an end, Soki, the reincarnation of the God of Darkness went on the war path to stop his step father from destroying the world.  It was a long and brutal fight, cutting down enemies as they rose up to meet his broad sword and his awesome strength.  Feudal Japan was being ravaged by the Genma Legions, and the ruler of Japan sought to use the demonic legions for his own evil ends.  Soki swore to do everything in his power to stop the chaos that was ravaging the land.

Music:  Shin Onimusha dawn of dreams themes - Soki's theme
