Character Submissions

Post by Corsenna on Tue Sep 06, 2016 3:49 pm

This is how I want characters to be submitted (Please be mindful of power-scale. If anyone's character gets too Overpowered or out of control an Admin character will go god-mode and take care of the problem. You will however be informed and given a chance to go back and edit any posts before that happens in the interest of fairness, but the easiest way to prevent such things is to keep your characters at a controlled power-level before that happens. The general scale right now is based on Exalted characters but some people may not be aware of what that entails so there will be a Power Level topic where you can ask any questions you may have before submitting a character) Also be mindful of your character's appearance, remember this will take place in a universe where supernaturals/divines do not exist, all characters of those types will be pulled in from other universes. Feel free to use a character that is obviously inhuman but you will want to come up with a way of concealing your inhuman nature. Any inhuman character will have the option to have been pulled into this universe up to (but no more than) 12 years ago. Anyone that wants to be a completely non-supernatural, totally normal human has the option to have been in this universe from birth as long as they want to be native to this universe, otherwise even if they're a plain human they still follow the rule of having been pulled her up to (but no more than) 12 years ago.

Name: Your Character's name, easy.
Universe: Where your character is from, less easy. If you character is from an existing RPG system or fandom add that here incuding if it's an RPG, anime, movie, book, and so on. Otherwise provide a brief 2-3 sentence explanation of where the character is from (yes I know how hard that is)
Type: What is your character? If your character is from an existing tabletop this is where you would put race and class, otherwise use a simple descriptor like 'dragon' or 'vampire' you probably get the idea.
Physical Appearance: In addition to filling out the following information you may add a picture. Please include the following information (where applicable) about your character - Eye color, hair color, skin tone/type (by type I mean anything other than regular skin, like if your character has scales, fur, feathers, or anything like that), Height, Weight (Not necessary to use actual an actual number - you can leave it at descriptors like heavy set, overly thing, anything like that), Distinguishing Features (does your character have scars, tattoos, piercings, or anything else), Style (How does your character dress?), Posture (How does your character carry themselves? Are they rigid or relaxed?), Other Notes (Anything that might be missed to help us build a mental image of your character)
Occupation: How does your character make money?
Specialties: What is your character good at? This is separate from combat abilities. This would be things like hunting, sewing, farming, languages.
Distinguishing Powers: Does your character use magic? Shapeshift? Fly? Tell us those things here.
Combat: Does your character fight? If so this is where you'd put in any special abilities that help with that. For example do they use martial arts, guns, swords...
Personality: How does the character act? Try to keep it reasonably brief, most of this can be learned through in-character actions, this category is more for helping others understand the types of characters already included so we can avoid too much clashing - though a little drama is always great.
Background: This is the history of your character. I understand how backstories are, but please try to keep it reasonably brief.

For Example

Name: Woneyi Roxil (Roxil)
Universe: Exalted (RPG)
Type: Lunar Exalt, Changing Moon Caste
Physical Appearance: Eye color: Green/Silver. Hair: Black, little longer than shoulder length. Skin tone/type: In Human True Form-medium/dark tan, otherwise it's variable. Height:In Human True Form-6 foot 4 inches. Weight: Slim but muscular. Distinguishing Features: Covered in Moonsilver caste-fixing tattoos, has a few very faint scars from burns,abuse, and injuries, also has three stones implanted directly into his body. Style: Roxil is very rarely fully clothed, sometimes not at all. Posture: Very relaxed and easy going. Other Notes: Roxil is unreasonably attractive (in Exalted terms the average person has an Appearance score of 2, Roxil has a 5) He also has a tell-features unique to Lunar exalts related to their spirit forms, other people may not be able to see these (That can be discussed in the OoC forum) his tell is a 2-parter, he has cat ears and a gloriously fluffy tail.
Character pictures in the spoiler box.
Spoiler:

And another picture showing more of the tattoos. Beware of nudity! (Don't worry, none of his manly bits are showing), And yes I know the coloring of the hair and tail are really poor quality but my black marker is dry and I was impatient so I used a charcoal block. I also forgot (hurray me) to color the visible hearthstones before coloring his skin and didn't even realize it until I started working on his tattoos.
Spoiler:
Occupation: False God? Aside from being a Steward of Creation Roxil used to be a thief, now he hangs out in his own personal temple enjoying the praise and offerings of hundreds of humans. Best. Job. Ever.
Specialties: Thievery and being pretty, pretty is a skill now because Roxil.
Distinguishing Powers: Roxil's most distinguishing power in this setting is the one intrinsic to being a Lunar - Shapeshifting. He learns new shapes through the Sacred Hunt and drinking the Heart's Blood of a desired creature, from that point on he can take that shape. He has several knacks and charms that enhance this ability. For those who are already familiar with this character I did add 3 knacks after he was retired from the Exalted campaign; he now has Twin-Faced Hero, Prey's Skin Disguise, and Lunar Blood Shaping Technique - for anyone that isn't familiar with those things ... you'll probably figure out what they do eventually Razz
Combat: Roxil uses hand-to-hand (hand-to-claw?) combat, never weapons ... unless you count teeth and claws.
Personality: Incredibly confident and stubborn. He loves everyone as long as they're good people, if they aren't good people he hates them and has no reservations about saying so. He loves taking naps in the sun, drinking, sex, drugs ... he's pretty much a vice kind of guy. Roxil does not know how to read or write and beware, this particular character also seriously has the dumb.
Background: Roxil was abandoned by his parents as a baby and instead raised by slaves as a slave. When he was about 9 the owners culled their workers, burning them all alive so they could replace the whole lot of them easily. Roxil escaped and lived on his own wandering across Creation stealing what he needed to survive. Along the way he ran into other orphans and the like teaching them the skills he had so they could work together stealing what they need. He and his thieves eventually settled down in the east even founding a village for anyone that wanted to escape the poverty and/or injustice experienced in the cities of the Realm. His little village was attacked one day and he nearly died trying to save them but Luna saw his love for Creation and Humanity giving him one of her Exaltations and all the power that went with it. From that day on the people of the village started to worship him even going so far as to start 2 other small villages with temples devoted to him.

Re: Character Submissions

Post by Lenso on Thu Sep 08, 2016 10:37 pm

Hello! This is my submission for my character, Dr. Lenso.
Name Dr. Lenso
Universe Mass Effect
Type Salarian Scientist
Physical Appearance Green Gold eyes, no hair but two horns, Yellowish Green smooth reptilian skin,5'7", Slight and slender build, Lenso has a living backpack on his back; it is organic and can unfold to a surprising size, Lenso wears bulky clothes gloves and obscures his face with a low hood, Lenso appears as a shiftless bum pushing around a cart mumbling to himself unless he is revealing his true self, in which case he's a hyperactive maniac with a living Dr. Oct style backpack, Backpack's true function is that of a mobile lab
Occupation Currently Lenso doesn't make money, he's busy collecting samples of all the neat specimens he's just discovered. He'll grow some food if he gets really hungry, but dumpsters also have all sorts of things to catalog anyways...
Specialties Lenso is the greatest genetic engineer in all of Salarian history. It was his groundbreaking work in viral genetic mutology that allowed the development of the Genophage, and subsequent use. If it has dna, Lenso can manipulate it.
Distinguishing Powers Lenso's incredible genius is his best asset, he is a legendary intelect. Also he has an organic abomination for a travel lab that he attatched to himself.
Combat Lenso is not much of a fighter, but he has a genetic lab with sharp legs and teeth on his back, so he has a plague up his sleeve about at all times
Personality Lenso is curious about the world to a fault. If he comes up with an experiment on the fly, hes doing that with his next breath. He won't directly harm anyone he considers a friend, but he also considers anything he could fix couldn't possibly be harm. (aka, he'll put bubonic plague in your bed if you got on his bad side but he still likes you and will fix you right up in a day or two, definitely before you die)
Background Frozen for generations, after finally being awakened Lenso went out to fix his works wrongs. Along the way he made some friends, and was just getting ready to say "Hi" to them after a long time when, BLAM, he's on some sort of alternate Earth with no idea how to get back.

Alex Crofton

Post by Phantomzaber on Fri Sep 09, 2016 5:09 pm

Name: Alex Crofton
Universe: Palladium Rifts - Earth.  CIty of EAS (Pronounced like ACE)
Type: Human Mech Pilot
Physical Appearance:
Eye color: Brown
Hair: Dark Brown
Skin tone/type: Tanned caucasian man from working out in the harsh sunlight in his home town.
Height: Six feet One inch
Weight: Rather physically imposing, While most of the work on his mech suit is done by his twin sister who is an accomplished engineer, he does his share of deadlifting mechanical parts into place for field work.
Distinguishing Features: Large scar over his right eye and a roughly trimmed, but close cut beard.
Style: Alex will probably be confused for a long distance truck driver in current times.  His clothes are generally some sort of denim pants and flannel shirt or stained t-shirt.  It's hard to do your laundry after the apocolypse.
Other Notes: In his pack he will be carrying a large green scaly egg.
Occupation: Mercenary / Hired Gun
Specialties: Extremely knowledgeable about technology. He comes from a future where the cityscapes have been turned to rubble, and yet unbelievable technology was wrought from the wreckage.
Distinguishing Powers: None
Combat: Fantastic gun fighter, but also proficient in hand to hand combat with balded weaponry.  Heavy weapons trained, and capable of piloting aircraft, watercraft, and land craft.
Personality: Alex is very protective of characters whom he feels are vulnerable.  He usually prefers to plan and calculated odds before taking actions, but has definitely been known to shoot first and ask questions when startled.
Background: Alex grew up in a post apocalyptic wasteland.  His mother, sister and he were on the run through most of his childhood.  He doesn't recall meeting his father, but he looks up to him as a hero. Piloting mechs is in his blood, as both of his parents were Chi-Town mech pilots as well.  He is very protective of his pack and the egg inside of it.

Name: Yukiyama Izumi (雪山イヅミ)
Universe: Adeptus Evangelion
Type: Evangelion Pilot. Outside the Eva, regular high-school girl.
Physical Appearance: Eye Color: A deep blue, almost purple in the right light. Hair Color: Jet black. She wears it down, not quite to her shoulders in a bob. Skin tone: Probably lighter than you’d expect. Height: 5’ 0”. Weight: Waif-fu. Distinguishing Features: Despite her small size, one can make out her muscularity quite easily if looking for it. No tattoos, no scars. Style: When outside of school, you’d probably find her in a black halter under a t-shirt and skinny jeans, with a pair of ribbon pins in her hair. Posture: Reserved, arrogant, and sometimes menacing, unless you can calm her down.
Occupation: Well, she was getting a stipend from NERV for piloting, but in this new universe…
Specialties: Izu has an incredible intelligence; she’s a quick thinker and picks up new topics with ease. She has a bit of an interest in the sciences, and will sometimes throw out facts and formulas to show people why they’re wrong. Her perfectionism has led her to be athletic. She practices Kendo, Karate, and Aikido.
Distinguishing Powers: What? She’s just a regular human when not in the Eva. Why would she have powers or magic? Next question.
Combat: She’s strong and quick enough that she can knock out a regular person in a single punch.
Personality: Izu is a perfectionist, and can be very high-anxiety because of this. She suffers from depression, even though she’d never admit it. She can be haughty and disdainful, especially to those weaker or stupider than her (by her measuring, at least). And if you’re deformed in some manner, well, don’t expect any favors…
Background: Izu is well aware of the fact that she is an artificial human created for the sole purpose of piloting an Evangelion, and will absolutely keep that a secret. Much of her life and training has focused around both regular schoolwork and skills for piloting, which can leave her a bit naïve about how much of the world goes on, especially in a world she’s never seen before.

However, in reality, she is…
Spoiler:
DID YOU REALLY THINK
YOU'D GET ALL THE ANSWERS
JUST BY CLICKING A BUTTON?

Will change if people want. Many thing are copy from Spikes description of Kaytee. Sara help me with other things.

Name: Kaytee (Is really 7 people, oldest is dormant. Kataleina (Cat-a-lay-na), Kieran, Amalaya, Yazish, Tiore (Tee-or), Smiles (Em-ill-eh), and Ezekeal)
Universe:
@Corsenna wrote:giant sentient space tree
Type: Alien plant
Physical Appearance: Eye color-changes between Blue, Green, Red, Purple, Orange, and Black. Hair color-Black. Skin tone/type-changes between Blue, Green, Red, Purple, Orange, and Black. Height-186 centimeter, Weight-very thin, Distinguishing Features-skin shimmers very faintly, color of eyes and skin shows where light shines on hair. Style-Prefer very simple uniform of home job (in picture), Posture-Relaxed, very loose. Other Notes-Reason colors change is based on dominant personality at the time. Color is usually Blue from youngest sibling.
Spoiler:
Occupation: Al hired her as bartender/security.
Specialties: Good at politics and magic of many kinds.
Distinguishing Powers: Copy and paste from Spikes description - Kieran uses Nature magic, manipulating the world around him. Amalaya is their best at glamour magic altering their appearance, and that of others. Yazish uses no magic, instead he focused all of his dominant time on training their physical strength and unarmed combat. Tiore focused on fire magic. Emilea has learned the techniques of every weapon she can get her hands on. Last, Ezekeal is studying ice magic.
Combat: Is very good a physical combat but prefer magic.
Personality: Is very cocky about physical and magic ability and intelligence.
Background: She was an Enforcer, one of the lawkeepers, warriors, and politicians of her people. She was being sent away to negotiate peace with the people of a nearby planet but her Seed was taken off course by an asteroid that nearly destroyed her. Over 300 years after she should have arrived at her destination she crashed instead on Earth. Kaytee refers to herself as female and has a female body due to her oldest sibling, however the oldest is actually male now as Kataleina's personality was sealed after an incident in which she committed the taboo of connecting her mind with the Mother Tree's and went insane.
