PostSubject: Mechanical Gods OOC (always accepting)   Sun Sep 28, 2014 9:54 am

*lazily copy-pastes from roleplex*



There was a room full of a large assortment of computer equipment.  Wires from various devices were spread across the floor.  The wall farthest from the entrance to the room had several computer monitors that had been lined up.  Each monitor had a person’s face on it; most of the people on them were between 13 and 25 years old.  All of the pictures had at the bottom of them written in bright red letters, “deceased”.   In front of the monitors was a large metal apparatus of some sort that looked like a large metal desk with various buttons, switches, and lights built into it, along with a keyboard in the very center.  

A young woman of slim physique who seemed to be around 23 years of age tapped away at the keyboard, her perfectly manicured nails darting from one key to another at remarkable speed.  Her hair was strait, holding a light blond color and had been cut to cover her right eye and went a few inches past her shoulders. There was an unusual atmosphere about her, as the gleam in the woman’s eyes seemed to be that of a mad-man’s (or in this case, mad-woman) and there was a constant grin on her face that would make one think of her as a complete sociopath.  Of course, such a statement would be close to the truth.  Her clothing consisted of a pair of plain, faded boot-cut jeans, a black tank top, and a white lab coat.  Many would have found the garb simple and normal to see in today’s society- maybe the outfit choice of a doctor who had an emergency and had to rush to the hospital on their day off- if it weren’t for the blood stains that were appeared in various places on the lab coat.  The most unnerving thing about the blood stains that riddled the white garment is that many of the stains seemed to be from different times- some stains were almost impossible to make out as time and worn them to almost oblivion, and some of the blood stains seemed almost as fresh as last month.

The woman wearing such attire was none other than Ran Clarkson, a no-name in the government and every-day society.  In fact, no one probably even knows of her existence.  She paused from typing to look up at the computer screens.  “My, my, so many interesting contestants,” her voice came out clear and strong.  It even seemed to hold an intelligence of some sorts in it, despite its holder’s looks.  She was looking from one deceased character to another.  So many had been the ideal contestants and yet still lost.  She smirked.  At this rate, none of them will have a chance against her.  There was a young girl who seemed about 15 years of age with a dark blue sweatshirt on.  Her picture was one among the several deceased.   Ah, yes.  Ran had quite a bit of trouble finding her.  She kept resetting.  Eventually, though, Ran realized that the girl never went anywhere without the blue sweatshirt, no matter what form she was in.    Several innocent people in blue hoodies may have gone missing, true, but she caught her eventually.  The girl threw her own cube right down the river before getting shot in the head... tragic.  The cube was never found, so that made the searching Ran had done for the girl pointless.  There was a picture of a boy of about 19 years.  He was a smart one.  He found out about Ran- he even found out about the items she had.  He didn’t know of her goals, though, when he demanded for everyone to forget him.  She granted his wish, of course.  The boy also became invisible, though.  Not to mention the fact that she eventually caught him despite this fact and so his face was among that of the deceased.  Ran continued grinning, observing her handiwork before standing up from the black rolling chair she had been sitting in and heading out of the room and into a hallway that was lacking in colors aside from white.  Its architectural design is comparable to that of a hospital’s.

Ran passed several doors in the long hallway before finding the one that was her destination and swinging the door open.  Inside the room were several small cubes- each one small enough to fit easily into one’s palm.  Each cube was the same color- a metallic, silver sheen that reflected the light.  The only difference in each cube was that on each cube was someone’s name.  The name of whoever originally had the item.  There was no exact name for the cubes, but Ran had found a name she thought fitting for the cubes.  Mechanical Gods.  The items that could give any normal human being a power of some sort.  Ran smirked, grabbing a random cube (her own cube, to be exact) before heading out.  In the hallway stood another person.  It was an African American man of about 25 years of age who was in a lab coat, as well.  The rest of his wardrobe clashed with the lab coat, as under it he wore a business suit that was a charcoal black color.  The man’s head was shaved and his face was expressionless, making Ran’s expression seem all the more wild and his own seem all the more emotionless.  This man, as you’ll discover later, is also a cube holder.  

“Are you ready to go?” he asked, his voice calm and collected.  “Of course I am, Klark.  There is one city in particular we are going to for our next, ah, victims,” Ran grinned.  The man, whom you now know of as Klark, cracked a small smile that seemed cold and vicious.  While only a small smile, the smile Klark gave seemed just as malevolent as Ran’s wild grin.  “You know when this is over I have to kill you, as well, right?” he asked. “We’ll see who kills who,” Ran smirked back as she led the way.  Her studies showed that in the city of Kellinsville there were several holders of the mechanical gods.  Let’s see if they’re ready for her.

Welcome to the roleplay, “Mechanical Gods” created by the one and only Celo.  Okay, so first let me clarify a few things before getting to the character sheets and such.  You will probably need to read these before deciding if you should join, as they may explain some rules for the roleplay.

-
The Mechanical Gods
-
Okay, so each character in this rp (Aside from a few side characters I’ll probably add for the roleplay’s convenience or if I give you special permission) will be a holder of a cube that looks like the ones described earlier.  Each of these cubes gives the owner a special power or ability.   The place these cubes came from is unknown.  Each cube only grants one power.  No more, and -of course- no less.  These cubes are indestructible, but the holders of these items aren’t.  Also, whoever owns the cube, the power the cube gives them will not work unless they are with the cube- whether it’s in their pockets, in their hand, in their shoe, it doesn’t matter as long as the cube is with them.  As soon as the cube loses contact with the person’s body, the person loses their special power granted by the cube.  However, to make this all a bit more interesting (and so that no one can cheat by having their character put their cube in a safe or something) the longer and farther a person is away from their cube, the weaker they feel.  Why?  Each cube is somehow connected to the original holder’s life force.  If they are away from the cube very long or too far away from the cube, then they begin losing their life force and slowly but surely die if they aren’t brought in contact with their cube soon.  

By the time the rp takes place, the characters should have had their cubes for about 3 years or less.  They will not know where the cubes came from- for some of the characters they may have just found the cube lying there with their name on it and a note explaining it to them, others may have had a dream explaining the cube and woken up with the cube in their lap.  The possibility is up to you.

Note- as stated earlier, the cubes are indestructible.  There is no possible way for the cube to run out of power, but people can still grow tired from overusing their power, just like in any superpower rp.  Please remember this is to prevent g-modding and metagaming.

-
The Setting
-
Kellinsville- This is the city where the story will be taking place.  It has the types of businesses and places you would see at any small city: a mall, parks, restaurants, a handful of proprietorships, etc.  It has a high school and middle school that has about 200-someodd students in each grade.  
The rp is based on the present with normal, everyday technology.  The time will be about a week after the schools have closed for the summer. (First of June, in other words)  
-
Rules
-
-First and foremost there is a rule for the OOC.  Whenever people send in character sheets, me and Dragonbud (the co-GM) will decide if the character sheet is acceptable.  It’s okay to suggest ways to improve, but don’t be a rude critic and judge the sheet, say it’s stupid or anything like that.  If you behave in such a way, I may give you a warning the first time but will not permit it the second time.

-Please keep things PG-13 rated or less.  Please bleep out cuss words with a few *’s.  I’ll allow a few cuss words that aren’t bleeped out, but please don’t do that constantly without putting in at least one *.

-Please don’t have your characters be able to do a crazy stunt not related to their power.  What I mean is don’t do something like, “Then Bob by some crazy chance realized Timmy was lying and even though he was only 13 was able to do a ninja-kick and sent Timmy flying into the wall even though his super power is a super brain” you get what I mean.  No overpowering your characters.

-basically, no metagaming or g-modding

-Keep in mind that the characters in this rp are normal people (mostly ages 13-25).  There will be no one who owns some huge arsenal of guns.  The best you could ask for is maybe one or two hunting guns since the family’s family goes hunting or something.  And, to make sure you’re reading the rules right now, be sure to include the words, “oppressing the natural” somewhere in your post. (Don’t ask where I got that statement, I just made it up because it sounded cool XP)

-It would be appreciated if the posts in this rp are at least a paragraph long least a paragraph long. (4-5 sentences) 

-at the moment, there are no restrictions for the amount of characters you can make.  It can be anywhere from 1-100.

-There may be a few characters created that the rules make exceptions for (such as Ran) please keep in mind these exceptions will be for the sake of the rp, to keep it rolling.  No complaining on these, okay? ;3

-Basically, this is a sandboxy rp and the entire plot (while I already have the basic problems formed) will be discovered by you guys as you go along.

Ah great Very Happy
Also I edited the character vault that's after the op to show a few characters I used earlier
If any of you guys don't like something about them, maybe if any seem too overpowered or something, just tell me and I will try and fix it

Name: Nathanial "Nate" Orwen

Age: 17

Nationality: Caucasian American

Height: 6'1"

Weight: Varies (explained later). Supposedly 143 lbs for "normal".

Appearance: Nate is slim and of average height with a stick-like frame. His face is also pale and narrow with grey eyes, large black eyebrows and a tired expression. Nate's thick hair is black also and typically unkempt (once earning him the nickname "birdnest" in preschool).
For clothing Nate generally wears jeans, shabby sneakers and a thick grey coat over a shirt. He also has a blue knitted scarf wrapped around his neck, a gift from his grandmother. Nate's cube is wrapped up in this scarf.

Talents: Nate is a middle-ground achiever and is typically a C to C+ student. He is intelligent though in non-academic ways and has a knack for noticing overlooked things. Nate can also cook well thanks to his knowledge of his grandmother's recipes.
He is terrible at sport. Kind of like an anti-talent.

Personality: Nate is calm, collected with a dry sense of humour. He prefers to spend time alone or with trusted friends rather than in a group and can seem distant because of it. He dislikes loud and overly excitable people as well as small dogs. In combat and competitions Nate can get a bit cocky, although he can reel this in if things go pear-shaped.

Mechanical god power: Density control, enabling Nate can effectively make himself lighter or heavier. Nate's strength and agility seems to adjust alongside his weight, allowing powerful attacks and resilience in a heavier form (but is slower and can't jump very well) and greater speed, agility and jumping height in lighter forms (but is weaker). Nate can also become light enough that he can float, although he is at the mercy of air currents. His stamina is not affected at all by his power.

Weaknesses: Density requires some focus to manipulate so Nate cannot change mid combat, meaning an opponent can easily defeat him with the appropriate strategy. Nate still feels pain when in a heavy form so that while he can run through a wall, it's still gonna hurt. Nate is also not very stealthy unless lightened, and even then he is prone to giving away his position accidentally.

History/bio: Nate was born in Kellinsville and was 5 when his parents died in a car accident. Since then he has lived with his grandmother on the outskirts of the city, where he takes the bus to school, works at a local department store and has a typical life.
Nate received his cube three years ago when it unceremoniously dropped out of the sky while on an errand for his grandmother. It wasn't until he had taken it home that he had noticed the deep depressions his feet had left in the asphalt and dirt. Quickly thinking the cube was the source of his gained weight, Nate left the cube in the garden, vowing to look at it better in the next morning. Needless to say he returned earlier to stop the weakness and dizzy feelings.
Nate typically uses his power for fun, although only with lighter forms. It is common to see him jumping from building to building, crossing gaps he shouldn't with ease, parkour style. When alone Nate also likes to float while listening to music.

Other: Nate has a healthy appetite for bacon and other pig-related meats.
His favourite colour is royal blue
His favourite music genre is electro, although he likes varying other kinds as well.
His favourite sport is...parkour? I guess?



I hope his power isn't too op or something.
