    -Desiderata- One girl, two guns (Intro)


    Many people's lives had been ruined by the war that sprang years ago- the war that was still going on under people's noses. It threw all of Earth into chaos in a span of a few days. Lives and adventures were torn apart and lost- but for 6 adventurers, it had just begun. The evil had to be stopped- and they thought they were just the ones to end it...

    The tunes of the Spanish guitar filled the saloon; old and tired fingers lightly plucked at the strings, judging by the look on the man's face you could tell he was putting his heart and soul into the music. As though he was describing every precious moment in his life for the drunken audience. A large cowboy hat was placed on his head; weather beaten and dusty. The only thing you could see was the man's chapped lips, curled into a slight smile. He didn't stop playing as the door next to him was slowly pushed open, revealing a black cloaked figure. Just minded his own business, that's what he did- and that's what he had been told to do so many times.

    He wasn't going to die today. That's all that mattered.

    Worn-down black boots clicked on the wooden floor as the figure made it's way to the bar. Slowly the person took a seat on the bar stool, holding up a hand and asking for two shots. Two shots of what? That was for the bartender to decide. Tequila was set down in front of the stranger, and even as they drank- only the lower part of their chin was visible. Of course, he had tried to get a better look- only to be reprimanded with a snap of the stranger's fingers.

    Two more shots.

    Whoever this person was- they were drinking tequila like it was going out of style. Time slowly dragged on, and by the time it was noon- there were about twenty empty shot glasses strewn in front of the stranger. No mortal man could down five glasses of that tequila and even see straight. Twenty glasses was almost like a death wish. Quickly the bartender discarded the thought that the stranger could possibly a bounty hunter. No arm of the law would go that far- and still have a job.

    "I'm looking for Ryan Silver." The request was whispered so softly- only the man behind the bar could hear it, and when he did- he still couldn't tell if it was a male or female. He took a few steps closer to the stranger, a cleaning cloth in one hand and a freshly cleaned glass in the other.

    "...You mean Ryan "the silver" Snake?" The bartender replied, trying once again to get a look at the person he was talking to. Strangely, their breath did not smell of tequila- but there were twenty glasses empty before him. Something wasn't right. The figure nodded slightly, and he took that as an opportunity to continue.

    "Ol' Ryan doesn't come by here much anymore. He went to the cities. BIG cities. We hear all kinds of things about him being the one who released those murderers on us years ago. They say he was the one who helped along the change of our time. Say that he did it all for the love of-" He was cut off by a loud slam- the figure stood, a black-gloved hand lay down on the bar.

    "Thanks." Quickly, the stranger pulled back the hood of the cloak, dropped a wad of cash next to the glasses and turned to leave. Surprised at the amount of money, the bartender looked in awe from the cash- up to the slender and tanned face of a female. He raised an eyebrow as she walked to the saloon doors; leaving another wad at the feet of the guitar player.
    "Be careful," She said, flashing him a caring smile and then going to face the exit.

    "strive to be happy." After that she was gone; and the man simply nodded back to her, pocketed the money and continued to play. He had been playing there for years, ever since he had lost his family in the war that broke out across the world years ago. Now there was nothing left for him- but to play as entertainment for the drunkards that came daily to his brother's bar.

    Since the war, most of the animals alive now were half-machine, a mad scientist's creation gone horribly wrong. He had mass-produced horses and cows, not really noticing that they would consume a whole field of grass in a matter of minutes. They were nothing but high maintenance lawn mowers, and soon all of the plains of Earth were quickly destroyed. Horses were practically free to buy and to use under your own expense. That particular mad scientist lived in Nino's old town- and made her a horse of her own for saving his life.

    This horse was unlike any other. Silverglide was tall and black, most of it's strong body had been consumed by machinery. Speed was ten times greater, as well as agility and loyalty. That god forsaken thing would follow Nino to the flaming pits of hell if it had to. The way she was going- they were going to get there fast. Silverglide didn't have to eat- therefore it was much easier for them to travel for days without stopping.


    Nino ran a hand through her hair, licking her dry lips and looking across the desert ahead of them. They had been riding for days- since she last stopped in Mexico. There she stocked up on food and drinkable water, as well as potions and pills. She had been getting hurt all too often lately. Lightly patting Silverglide on the back of the head, the girl hopped from it's saddle and stretched her legs.

    "This desert is lonely, Silverglide...." She mumbled, holding onto the reins.
    "...nobody out here for miles." The horse simply neighed in response, also looking out at the desert. Yucca plants, sage brush and all kinds of dead, dry plants were strewn across it. Deep down, Silverglide fought back the urge to eat them. He once -was- a horse, of course and it was like second nature to him. No amount of metal could take away instinct.


    Desiderata: Resurrection

    Ryan Silver enjoyed two things in life; his girlfriend and building robots. As years went by, his skills improved , but his girlfriend's illness worsened. Her name was Lana... In his rage, he destroyed all of Vaha- only a few remained...

    Nino West takes the role as protector of those who have built refuge of what's left of Vaha and rides the barren land after ten years. A Legendary bounty hunter, the girl travels the land in search of the man who destroyed her home.

    Vaha has turned into a dystopia; Magi, elves, robots, and mythical creatures have struggled to rebuild. Upon noticing that the inhabitants of the land he destroyed, Ryan knows exactly how he wants to react. Kill them all.... When one of his generals return with news of being attacked by a gun-slinging woman with a robotic arm- he starts to wonder...


    Right about now, we are working on all of the cities and whatnot, but he told me to put this up first, to see if anyone would be interested...!

  2. Yes. Yes?
     
  3. Plot:

    Years after the Great War, Ryan is still in control. Without really preparing her friends, The legendary Six, for battle, they rushed in to end his tyrrany. Nino watched in horror as the heroes fell around her, and eventually she was the only one left. Ryan thought he had killed her, and left her alone in the burning rubble.

    Ten years after the battle, Nino and The Six have slowly disappeared into the pages of time and gossip.

    Older and wiser, Nino emerges from hiding and prepares herself for war. Her old friends have not died in vain and she will make sure that Ryan knows that. Not only will she find a new six, she will try her hardest to build an ARMY.

    Key Characters:

    The Six: Nino's orignal band of warriors, whom were also her friends. After they stormed into Ryan's fortress and fought against his Titanium Army, they fell protecting thier friend. (Deceased)

    Rachel West: The young and frail wife of Bean, she specialized in healing magic.

    The Titanium Army: Ryan's skilled half-human, half cybernetic assassins. They are lethal and exact- in one night, they can completely obliterate an entire city.


    Key Locations:

    Vaha: Once considered the largest and most bustling city on Earth, the entire area was mostly destroyed ten years ago. Now, it has regained it's status- but is crawling with the Titanium Army. Ryan controls most of the cities and towns, except for a select few. Vaha is a lush, yet cybernetic city- filled with mines, factories, as well as forests. It is also the only place on Earth that has changed it's name.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: Charlie had a normal life; going to school, parents, friends, even a litte pet dog. All of it normal until Ryan began his purges after the final battle with the six. His parents and everything he was tied to, like so many others, was lost to him forever. After wandering and living off of what he could steal he met a group of revolutionaries, like minded individuals who had all lost something in those times. At first he was to young to fight with them, but he was tought to do other things. As time past, he got older and realized that the group was to weak to fight on their own and they knew it. So he left them to their squabbling to go out on his own.

    Present Life: Charlie has been searching for an artifact from an older age that was rumored to be hidden in an underground vault. It was said to be some sort of powerful weapon, one he hoped to turn against Ryan and his army. Not to mention he realizes that he will need help and money so he has been working as a gun for hire in the mean time.

    (More to Come. Do we have to use this sheet though? It seems a bit over kill is all.)

    Species/Race: Human (Magi)
    Age: 16
    Birthplace/World: Vaha
    Occupation/School/Grade: Vaha City High School, 11th Grade
    More:

    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    General Appearance: She is slightly taller and somewhat more lean than other girls her age. Her skin is a light olive shade and her eyes are a light jade green. Her straight hair is a purple-black and falls just below her shoulders when not put up in a side pony-tail, a side bang covering almost half of her forehead falls ends just above her right eye. To most, she seems to be more graceful than people her age, and thus appears attractive amongst the awkward girls she is associated with.
    Strengths: fast (physically and mentally), intelligent, great magical potential
    Weaknesses: less physical strength than other races, can have trouble working with others, not skilled with her magic, yet.
    More: She is a novice mage and is able to summon small plants such as flowers and grass over a small area, and can make objects up to 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms) float a meter above the ground for up to thirty seconds at a time without much of a problem. However, she can also attempt to move heavier objects up to 50 pounds (about 23 kilograms) if she concentrates her magic for long enough.

    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Current Goal/Purpose: To be free from the tyranny of Ryan's rule.
    Talents: Singing, track (short-distance/sprinting), mathematics, fist-to-fist combat
    Inabilities: standing up to people, using a gun, fighting more than three enemies at once.
    Fears: That Ryan will continue to rule, and that further opression shall come because of his rule. However, more shallower fears include socializing with people and dealing some of the girls in her classes.
    General Personality: She is quiet and graceful. She tends to speak very little, and tends to cut back on words she deems unnecessary, often not stating what is or already has been implied. This can confuse some less intelligent people when she speaks, and often leads to misunderstanding between her and other people, which may make her seem mean or unsympathetic at times. She only hangs out with a few people, and sticks to them loyally. She tends to push people away without knowing it.
    Inner Personality: On the inside, she is really shy and kind of scared of the people around her. She is rather intelligent, but wishes to be nice to even those that are much less than nice to her. She is loyal, and clings to the few friends that are willing to be with her. She tends to get scared easily, but tends to not confront those fears until somebody else helps her do so. She wants people to be with her so that she can confront the unknown and what she fears.
    Secret: Secretly knows and protects the identities of some people planning to try and overthrow Vaha.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: Leila is the sole child of her parents Clara and Richard Rubiarda. From a young age, Leila has been aware of the city of Vaha, and has heard from her peers about the things that have happened and "The Six" who tried to defeat Ryan and his army of partially mechanized super-humans. Leila, sympathizing with Nino and the deceased members of "The Six," began to dislike Ryan for killing them off. Furthermore, she began to gain fear of Ryan's Titanium Army when friends around her started beginning to dissappear without ever saying good bye. Presumedly, the Titanium Army assassinated them all for being rebels.

    Leila picked up singing when she was six, singing at the store that her parents owned. Most of the people that came in were impressed with her voice, and some would even throw a small amount of money in her direction as she grew older. Eventually, she got into her middle school's chorus and began to practice singing more often. Leila had even began trying to get gigs during her 9th and 10th grade years in high school, allowing her to earn a little bit of money. Another talent of hers, sprinting, was acquired during middle school, in which she was on the track team for all three years of middle school.

    Leila discovered her magical potential when she hit puberty. It was weird to her because neither her mother nor her father were able to cast magic, but she could make objects float across the room and make plants randomly grow in places with ease, causing her mother and father to become concerned. Not wanting their daughter to be taken away by the Titanium Army, they forced her to limit her magic use and keep it a secret to everyone except between the three of them.

    Present Life: Leila seems to live the life of a slightly privileged teenager to some because of her parents' decent economic standing as compared to most of the other people in the city. She attends school regularly and does well academically. However, socially, she is not doing so well, and is dealing with misunderstanding girls and boys who pick on her and spread rumours about her. She has no friends at the moment, and she typically finds herself dashing off from school to her home about two miles away. When she gets home, she tends to go to the basement to practice singing and sometimes even secretly practice her budding magical skills.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History:
    Daisi recently broke away from her father and mother, who were angry and scorning when they learned that she had met with Ryan. Until this incident, she lived a life of boredom and distress, worrying that she would die a faceless creature and keeping very few friends due to her overly honest tendencies. She lived with her sister, sharing a bedroom but never being close with her magically talented sister, who did not possess Daisi's eerie beauty but instead the golden locks and feminine softness that others found attractive. Daisi has forever been envious of her elder sister, Gale.

    Present Life:
    Daisi lives alone in a small apartment, working part time as a mechanic to cover the costs while she finishes schooling. As of yet, she is unaware of what she must do to appease Ryan and gain the benefit of his promises and lives her life now simply imbued with new hope.
     
  12. The magic is based on the persons "sign" as well as their attitude. XD If they come from a specific clan, then only that clan and members of it can use the power. And, I would prefer abilities be "gained" over time- so the older they get, the better types of magic they can use! Sorry about the delay everyone, my internet was down and once we paid the bill I'm going to get as much finished as possible!
     
  13. ok, but what is magic used for, how is it used, etc? also, what makes magic dark? Because I plan on making a Dark magi, but I want to know what he should be able to generally do and what things he can do because he's a dark magi.
     
  14. GENERAL CHARACTER STATISTICS

    Character Name: Nino
    Gender: Female
    Species/Race: Human, other than her cybernetic parts.
    Age: 27
    Birthplace/World: Vaha
    Occupation/School/Grade: Mercenary


    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    General Appearance: Ten years later, Nino still looks like a child. Her skin is tanned from the sun, and her once-red hair has been sunbleached orange.Most of her cybernetic parts are covered, including her arm. She tries to hide it as well as she can, but after riding across the land, she has decided to wear things that are a bit more weather-friendly. Nino is tall and slim, but she can pack a mean punch whenever needed.
    Strengths: Her iron will and the cybernetic enhancements that were given to her.
    Weaknesses: Children (since she's too afraid to have any of her own) and people who need help.


    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Current Goal/Purpose: To build her army, and end Ryan's rule once and for all.
    Talents: Other than her skills in combat, she can juggle as well as cook.
    Inabilities: Before, she wasn't so great at planning OR being a leader. Second time around, she has learned from losing her friends- but she still lacks patience.
    Fears: Her past.
    General Personality: Nino is now damaged, after the loss of her friends. Sullen and quiet, she normally comes off as someone who is to be avoided. Once she does open up, she is fun-loving and kind; a person who loves her friends like family. Hard-drinking and slightly random, she WILL speak to strangers only after she's thrown down a couple of shots.
    Inner Personality: The carefree and kind Nino from ten years ago is gone, and as much as she wants to revert back to it- it's not going to happen. The only thing at the MOMENT that is on her mind is killing Ryan and letting the people live fear free lives.
    Secret: She is Lana Silver. After she "died" her body was found by a resident of Vaha and he rebuilt her; implanting her with cybernetic parts.She says that she can't remember her past life, but she does; always avoiding the subject when people actually figure out exactly WHY she wants to end Ryan's life.


    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: Ten years ago, Nino woke up from her coma and realized that she had new parts. Her memories weren't completely returned, but she couldn't help traveling around to help the people she encountered, against Ryan's will. Along the way, she met the Six: a group of vigilantes who joined in the fight against Ryan. Time went on, and without proper training or leadership, she led them into battle. As her friends died, one by one, she stood there in awe as Ryan ran her through with his sword.
    She let her friends down, and as she thought she took her last breath, she ran his sword through even further...

    Present Life: Finally coming out of hiding, Nino is once again traveling to Vaha to find a new Six. Only this time, Ryan won't know what hit him. She isn't the impatient teenager she was last time; now, she wants to create an army to end his tyranny once and for all.
     
  15. Everyone is accepted, I have FINALLY had my electrical problem in the house fixed so YAY! We are doing great with the good guys, but some baddies will be needed, but then again- we could always NPC the ones we need until other people join! And Kamikaze, add me on scype or whatnot, so we can get into the usage of magic. XD Unfortunately, it's still undecided.
