[Interest Check] Twisted Metal RP [Always Accepting!]
« on: December 10, 2010, 05:27:47 PM »
The Better Explanation: Recruitment Thread

You 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.

2. Hengler 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.

I'll go ahead and say I'm interested. This looks like it could be a great RP if it's handled right. I love being able to have both outlandish character designs and serious characterization at the same time.

I'll be RPing a male character, unless you end up with too many of those, in which case I don't mind making him a her.

Welcome aboard! I don't think we will get as many males as we will females because most males want to RP females on this site.

Edit: I made changes to the front page. You can have a visual or written description of your character's vehicle. The visual is optional but the written description is mandatory.

Never have played this game, but I am so interested in this. Consider me in.

If you get too many female characters I'm willing to play a pretty boy male character for this. I'm incredibly versatile if nothing else.

Okay, I'm getting excited to create the Recruitment Thread for this whether I get enough people to run this or not. I am feeling very creative, and I just have to let off this energy. I will let you know when I get the Recruitment Thread up, if you don't see it first. If you think you'll be interested in this RP, feel free to post your interests. *goes off to work on the OOC*

Okay, I'm working on my character proposal. It sounds interesting.

Name: Verona

Nickname: Vera

Age: 23

Gender: Female

Weight: 144 pounds

Height: 5'5

Appearance: Verona has long hair of a blood red color and bright green eyes. Her skin is fair and heavily freckled everywhere. She had has thin pale lips. Her hair is not completely straight as it has a wave and a bounce to it. Her body is simply smooth and voluptuous as she has large breasts, a slim waist, and wide hips. There are no piercings but she has a small tattoo off a rose on the top side of her bum, left cheek. She wears glasses to correct severe nearsightedness.

Personality: Verona is calm and analytical. She has a tendency to over think things and to attempt to see through everyone she meets. Sometimes she tends to come off as vague and her minds seems to wander. For the most part she is easy to get along with. Somewhat lazy, she has a habit of leaving things wherever she has them when she finished using them. There doesn't seem to be much of a killer instinct and she is slow to anger, but don't push her over the edge because she becomes downright insanely viscous.

Likes: Books, sleeping, bitter foods, jazz music, sweat suits, playing mind games on others, cars, and guns.

Dislikes: Getting sweaty or overtly dirty, sex, wearing anything scanty or seductive, sweet foods, country music, having people play mind games at her, cleaning, manual labor, any work involving dirt.

Quirks: Vera doesn't pick up after herself and refuses to clean. Her dwelling will always end up a mess if no one picks up after her but she seems to like it that way. She can ask a lot of personal questions or get into a philosophical debate with people very easily. For some reason she can't avoid a discussion on world politics. If someone goads her enough she can lose her temper, though it is rare, it is usually devastating for everyone involved.   

Talents: Vera is actually very skilled in several form of self defense, most noticeably karate and taekwondo. She's a speed reader and has an almost photographic memory when it comes to anything she reads. This strange skill gives her an ability to do wide range of things. For some reason, she's actually quite talented with a gun and a quick mover in any kind of a fight. She can see through most people rather quickly.

Not to be insolent or anything, but you're seriously rewarding us based on the number of words we can put in a post? That's not going to stimulate better writing, that's just going to make people cram in useless details whenever they post so they can hit the 1,000 mark every time. I'm all for reward for good writing, but more words doesn't equal better writing. Just look at The Stranger.

Ah, whatever, it's your game. I'll have my guy's bio up later today.

Nazora Looks good, don't forget to PM me her background.

Lisabeth You're welcome to apply. We're going to be accepting for awhile. Oh yeah, I was surprised I was able to make it into a game myself lol. I was playing Twisted Metal 2 weeks ago, and then I played Black for awhile. Because I enjoy the franchise so much, I was thinking: "Hm...this can be a RP."

Revenent I use this system on another forum site, and I don't have any issues with it. The reason is, I had written a rule that said, if I feel that you are writing just to write, and if I feel your post isn't productive and moves your character along, then I will personally deny you the points. I really haven't had anyone abuse this system and I'm not worried. It becomes exhausting posting 1k words each time, so people eventually wind up not caring about the points. But I will add the rule to the RP since there is worry and uncertainty.

Edit Never mind. I can't make the recruitment thread the character thread because it's in the Group Wanted and not in the extreme section. I can move it over there, but blah. If I have to, I'll just make a replica over there. Also, I'm going to bed, so I'll wake up several hours later to answer any questions and handle applications. I just need to sleep. I was playing a game all night v_v.

Name: Elijah Gallanby

Nickname: Eli

Age: 35

Gender: Male

Height: 5'10

Weight: 170

Appearance: A thin, black man of medium height with a shaved head and light blue eyes. His features are closer to sharp than broad, though not noticeably so. Wears an expensive black suit with a white shirt, black tie, and silver tie tack in the shape of a British flag. Very well-groomed overall.

Personality: Almost always acts kind and innocent to those around him, often times being the center of attention due to his great sense of humor, but deep down he has no real sympathy or respect for life. He'll often be the kindest to his enemies so they do not expect when he works behind their backs or manipulates them in helping him. Has great pride for his home country of Great Britain.

Likes: Great Britain, outsmarting others, seafood, punk music, clever comedies, people with good manners, poker.

Dislikes: Americans, a deceit failing, overcooked/blackened foods (such as burgers and steaks), tragedies, people who don't get sarcasm, people who drink too much, children, having to drive fast.

Quirks: Pretty much has no problem inviting himself into a conversation, though he'll back out of one if the tone becomes too serious or philosophical; he doesn't want to share his real views on things. Likes to keep things neat, but is still able to have fun. Will never have more than two alcoholic drinks on a given night.

Talents: Obviously is quite good at putting on an act and making people trust him. Is also a decent dancer and can cook some great food, although he rarely does because he doesn't enjoy it that much. Very good at turning people's words around on them, although he doesn't usually do it in an insulting or malicious way.

Nazora I'm still awaiting your PMed background.

Revenent Okay.

Lisabeth I was hoping you would try and avoid making it obvious what kind of person your character was. Even though it's not said in your profile, there isn't going to be much situational irony later when she reveals to the reader what they could already guess. Your character has amnesia so she doesn't remember anything and that would affect the personality. I did say that they will still retain their personality, and I may add this to clarifications so everyone can understand what I mean, but what I meant is if they killed someone and the fact that they killed someone didn't bother them, then it can be assumed by the reader that that character might have seen death or killed before. What she might have been would be vague. So, yes, I'm hoping you would make some changes.

I hope everyone gets what I'm saying, and I'm glad someone actually used the profile code for once.

I am still looking for players for this RP. Just be sure to make a personality for your character that is different from what you think their personality would be if they remembered who they were. Players unable to do that, I will have to ask them to remake their character, and if they can't do that, then I will have to deny them because that's not what this game is about. You must keep your character's true identity hidden from other players, so when it is revealed in game, there may be some situational irony. I am hoping to receive some creative and just awesome backgrounds from any of you who decide to try this game.
