The Better Explanation
: Recruitment ThreadYou do not have to have played Twisted Metal to participate in this RP. Twisted Metal, in a nutshell, is a game about cars driven by crazy people, who just destroy each other in numerous ways, and the winner gets a wish from Calypso. The wish is always twisted around and sometimes that wishee may not get the paradise they hoped for. If you ever need more than that, you can go on youtube and type in "Twisted Metal" to see examples of any of the games. You can also type in "Twisted Metal 2, Black, etc. Endings" and see how Calypso is evil and screws people over in the wish department. (Sometimes the people screw him over lol)
I have a hankering for writing up an OOC for a Mature Twisted Metal RP. Before I explain, I was unsure whether to do this RP like Twisted Metal Black where every character will be a patient in an asylum or I do my own spin on it. My plans currently revolve around my own spin since each of the TMs were different.
1. The beginning of the RP will be focused on you making your character and nothing else. So this RP will run at a moderate pace. You will not be worrying about your vehicle or needing to mention the kind of vehicle your character drives. None of that (for now). This is just about your character for Part 1, him, her, his and her personality...your character will wake up in a bedroom similar to that of a cheap motel: single bed, bathroom, desk & lamp, and TV. The room has no windows and the door isn't exactly a welcoming piece of work for it is crafted from metal, and so your tiny room may feel like a comfy prison. Your character doesn't remember much about themselves. He or she will remember his or her name and retain their personality, but as far as who they once were whether a serial killer, cop, grocery store worker, mother, etc. They won't remember. Your character will eventually venture out of their room and find that outside their room looks like a night club. Music is going, there's several people, everyone is dancing, etc. This is Part One of the RP and this is how the IC will go.
There will be an elaborated explanation of the setting so you will know what's on each floor of the club and will be able to have your characters guide around it comfortably. In Part One, your characters may meet each other and talk, have some chit-chat or notice other characters involved. Once everyone has at least met or "noticed" each other, the RP will move on.
will be playing the role of Calypso. He is the ringleader of the entire Twisted Metal tourney. In this RP, he is a man that was able to steal the powers from a djinn, who had originally hosted the tournament. Like Calypso, he is sadistic and has the power to warp reality and grant the winner of the Twisted Metal tourney any wish he or she desires.
Hengler is the mysterious man who appears in Part One illuminated by spotlight as he stands upon a stage and welcomes everyone to the Twisted Metal tournament. He explains what the tournament is all about, which the whole point of the tournament is every man for him/herself. Because I felt that death for an RP where people are supposed to have fun developing their characters was a bit much, I was going to run the tournament in a story line and non-tourney fashion (which was my original intention from the start). When you make your character, other players will not know the past of that character. I will know since I won't be an active player in this RP (I honestly haven't decided if I wanted to be or not). I was planning to RP Hengler and the enemy NPCs your characters will encounter in the derby (though if you want to be an enemy, let me know).
Any who, you, the player, have the option to secretly team up without letting Hengler know of your intentions and destroy the enemies in the derby or you can actually have your character go against others. It is entirely up to you. I think the game would be more exciting if there was some drama in it such as death, injury, crash, maybe one of you will save another, etc. For the RP, your character will eventually discover what kind of person they were, and that may be a dangerous/lethal awakening or a good one. It depends on what kind of a secret background you wrote for them.
Back to the Part One discussion, Hengler explains the game, and the rules. Everyone is then issued a contract they must sign in blood because your character really has no choice but to participate or die. Once your character binds his or her soul to the game, then Hengler bids everyone good night and tells them it all begins in the morning. Your characters will be free to roam the club and continue some story development or building character ties until you put them to bed. Once everyone's character is in bed, Part 2 will begin.
3. In Part 2, the TV in their rooms cut on on their own and wakes them up. It instructs them to get washed up and that there are clothes in their rooms. They are then to meet outside the club, and during Part 2, the OOC will open up the code for the vehicle. You will be required to have a visual and written response to describe your vehicle. The visual is not mandatory, but the written appearance is. The reason why is I want you to be creative and to write vividly what your character's vehicle looks like, and what its special is, and what it's name is. All vehicles have the Gatling Gun as all the vehicles did in the game. The weapons in the game are going to be allowed in this RP, but here's the catch. You must buy the weapons and the med. kit with the points you are awarded for how much you write. I don't like to award quantity over quality, but they kind of go hand in hand, so if you don't write enough to describe to the reader what you're talking about, then you're going to see that in your points. Allowing players to buy weapons for their vehicles also limits the player to a certain amount of missiles instead of them just having all weapons with infinite ammo. The only weapon that I will allow to have infinite ammo, is the Gatling Gun because it has infinite ammo in the game. If your character uses up all his or her missiles, napalms, etc. before the battle is over, then he or she is going to be in danger, which makes the RP more climatic, intense, and fun because then you'll have to use your brain to figure a way to live (you better pray your character has some friends lol).
Any who, once your character is assigned his or her vehicle, they are free to go wherever they want in the fictitious city that will more than likely be an original city because the derby will take place in the realistic cities like Paris, Moscow, etc. They can go eat and do whatever, but once the call to battle is summoned, which you will know because I'll post it in red, I will give you time to have your character drop what he or she is doing, say goodbye, or whatever, before they are teleported to the city where the derby of destruction will begin. Not everyone will go, so some of you will be still in the city. There will be six characters per battle. Three of the characters per battle will be controlled by me, the other three will be you and two other players. It will be a random selection that will swap, so once everyone has done at least one battle, then you might be in a match with other players you might not have been in a match with originally. I will have a total number of participants in twisted metal that you guys will have to destroy, and there will also be two bosses that will just enter the battle with the sole purpose of freaking you out, making you crap your pants, and just to be so annoying with his or her seek and destroy attitude.
But that is my idea for this game. If you are interested, then just post here that you are. I do not have a limit of how many people I want in this, and I'm not expecting too many. If I don't get at least 4-6 people (can't decide whether four or six I really want at least six), then I'm not going to do this here.
I label this RP as Mature
and not adult because though sex is allowed in it, it is not a porn. There is story line, and I want the players to put story line and character development forward. So these are things I hope to see: romance, sex, hot/sexy drivers , gore, brutality, the works. The bad guys I will put you guys up against are not going to be the cleanest dudes you've ever laid eyes on. They're going to be some trashy people (but not always...dun dun DUN). They may be people you'd love to have your character kill or people that will make your heart ache because they may not be bad at all. It all creates serious drama that makes a story worth Rping. I only want dedicated players.
This RP will not be rushed. It will move when you guys make it move. Of course, I will be helping it move but only when the storyline is shifting. I more than likely won't be starting the IC instantly until I have profiles and a good amount of people, so I give that two weeks or one week and a half from now, so during now and until then, I'm going to be accepting applications and setting up the code for part one (as soon as I get a decent amount of applications). If I don't get enough applications, then I'm not going to start this game here. I will more than likely take it elsewhere.
I will be making several threads that I will help you keep track of.
I want to mention also that even though I said this is a non-canon RP, please do not base your character off the canons of Twisted Metal. I will not be allowing a Sweet Tooth rip in this RP. If I was going to allow canons, then psh, I would definitely snag Sweet Tooth o_o. But this is not a canon RP. I want everyone to be as original as can be.
Every character will be human in this RP as they are in all the twisted metal games (except Minion). Being human just makes things more challenging and thus as I said, more storyline elements.
But yes, if you are interested in this just let me know and tell me if you'll be role playing a male or female character so I can get a good head count.
