Operation Etheria [RP Signups]

Post by BlazeZeroThree on Tue Sep 27, 2011 11:50 pm

In a world where magic fights alongside technology, where starships cross paths with airships, where utopia seems to be in our grasp... you find yourself valiantly risking your life to defend the humble Solarian town of Etheria, one of the last bastions of ancient arcane culture in the known galaxy. But as you fight against the terrorist forces of the Modernization Union, you will soon discover there is much more to the galaxy just underneath the utopian surface...

This is my attempt at starting up a text-RP for the good people of our server. For those of you who're unfamiliar with text RP, it's basically just what we do on our server, except... done in text. This means I as the GM provide descriptions of actions, create consequences and locations, and so forth. All your actions are to be reasonable and done in text as well. For those of you familiar with text RPs or roleplaying in general, I will point out that I am not using a concrete damage system or random rolls to determine outcomes. In fact, I generally outline my RPs with vague plans and checkpoints, and essentially improvise everything in between, so I apologize for whatever inconsistencies or plot holes arise.

This RP won't take place in the Minecraft server's chat, mainly because of how much it'd crowd out regular chat and the restrictive character limit. Because of this, I will be hosting the RP over IRC, which is essentially a lightweight chat room system. For those of you unfamiliar with IRC, I will help guide you through the steps necessary to access the server and room information I will be eventually disclosing to accepted players.

If you wish to join, I will be happy to take your Bio as your character. To apply, simply state that you wish to join the RP and post a link to your Bio. Alternatively, you may fill out a simple character sheet:
Name:
Age:
Species: Solarian
Appearance:
Personality:
Equipment:

IMPORTANT NOTES:
The RP sessions will most likely take place from 7-12PM PST on days when I feel capable of GM'ing. I realize this is very vague, so I will be posting expected times in this thread on the day or prior to the RP sessions. I would still encourage idling in chat so I can highlight your name in IRC to catch your attention when the sessions start. I can make do with progressing the RP with not-everyone-present, though I would prefer not to.
Please roleplay responsibly. It's not much fun if you act out-of-character, or decide to cast magic nuke.
If you have any questions on the universe, broad or specific, I will be happy to answer.

I'd try to participate but I couldn't be around for the first half of your time range most days of the week. Good luck. :)

I'll try to be online... But I really can't promise anything, I think I'll use Falgor- WAIT... IDEA... Nvm. Is it alright if I made a Solarian character though? As in, on here, if I was Chat-RPing, and I wanted to change the character?

Bio Link; [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (Scroll down the page and you'll find it, Not the first one, the second one. The first one is a bad copy, could an admin delete that? Note: I removed the bio in that post and put that it was a bad copy, and to delete it please).

Thanks.

I'll probably create a Bio and participate soonish, when I'm not quite as busy.

I am thinking about having the RP happening sometime this weekend. It will possibly be between 10AM to 10PM on the weekend days; I will try to be more specific when I send out the confirmations to those I've accepted.

Okay. I just worked out 7-12PM PST time into my timezone's time. Turns out it's around 3AM... I definitely won't be participating. XD Sorry, I would've really liked to do so though.

I have done something like this before on a forum, and just 3 of us have managed to rack up about 5000 posts in under a year. (In our 4th book :D)

However there's slight variations to this one you are suggesting:

1. It's pokemon
2. There's no need to be online all the time
3. You can have multiple characters (3 people doing a forum based rpg would be rubbish with just one character per person!)
4. There's no such thing as a GM however there are cetain boundaries.

I can link you to it if you would like and you can read through it. There's romance, battles, evil, good, total mentality, random events that make no sense, powers that break the fabric of reality and some fun loving guys over there that know how to rp!

As far as using an IRC at a specific time goes, I wouldn't be able to participate :(

Worked it out and found out it'll be 10PM-12AM EST.

Edited because I thought it'd be rather awkward to have Richards in a time/place where he really shouldn't be. :P

Name: Kain
Age: 20s
Species: Solarian
Appearance: Kain is tall, even for a Solarian. And has long black hair and dark eyes.
Personality: He is naive, inexperience, and hot-headed.
Equipment: Basic pistol and assault rifle.

Should be fine for me as long as it's a weekend, and since everyone else is using their bios: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] One up from Levok's.

This looks like fun, I'd be happy to join. Hopefully my schedule would agree..
Name: Tychus Lynch
Age: 35
Species: Human
Appearance: Looks somewhat like a 250 lbs, 6"1 tower of muscle. His face is known for it's stern look, and soldier-like expression. (Looks like a standard Warhammer 40k Ultramarine)
Personality: Tychus is an angry, stubborn, hate filled man, not the sort that she be trained to be a killer.
Equipment: Tychus' heavy suit of power armour and assault rifle almost never leave him.
