    "Becoming fearless isn't the point. That's impossible. It's learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.”

    We're lucky to be in the city. They say that war was terrible, that the rest of the world was destroyed. Our founders built the wall to keep us safe and they divided us into five groups, factions, to keep the peace. And then there's Dauntless, they're our protectors, our soldiers, our police. I always thought they were was amazing. Brave, fearless and free. Some people think that Dauntless are crazy, which they kind of are.

    Welcome to the Sign-Ups thread, Initiate! The following Rp is going to be based around the Worlds of Divergent, more specifically the Faction System of Chicago. The game shall begin with the choosing ceremony, where all the future dauntless shall leave both their families, friends and blood behind at the smoking coals, and enter their new life at dauntless headquarters. Next, you and your fellow initates shall have to go through the dauntless initiation, with eliminations, characters deaths and corruption at every turn! Discover the secret plans of your faction, remove Divergents from the system and qualify for the next dauntless leader. Conquer your Fears. Stay Alive. BE DAUNTLESS

    Complete Your Initiation-Score points for your completion of fighting tournaments, knife throwing, target shooting and for showing ordinary acts of bravery
    Move up the Ranks- Stay ahead or go live with the factionless. At the end of each round, those who have not reached the right amount of points to progress will be eliminated from the Rp/ will have to join the factioless thread(perhaps even join the Evelyn's Factionless resistance force?
    Win at all Costs- Pm the Gm(me) if you feel as if you need to attack another player. Perhaps you want to take down the guy or gal at the top of the leaderboard? But be careful, they will fight back if you don't fight hard enough.
    Create your Own Initiate- Design your own character with his or her own strengths and weakness. Were they dauntless born? or maybe they're transferring stiffs?
    Fair and Just- There No Special Snowflakes in Dauntless! Events such as knife throwing will be decided by the throw of a dice; this will help keep things 'clean'
    Eliminate the Divergent- Some new players will be Pm-ed about this status. As you may expect, this status makes you Divergent, allowing you to do a whole array of suspicious stuff, such as expressing traits from multiple factions, being able to resist serums etc. THERE IS A CATCH, HOWEVER! If your fellow Dauntless suspect your Divergence, you are in for a whole heap of trouble. Your fellow Initiates can: report you to a supervisor(puts you at risk of being removed from Dauntless and sent to the factionless), kill, maim or otherwise humiliate you into leaving the compound, reveal your status to the rest of the Dauntless(The corrupt Dauntless are welcome to lynch you)

    Personality trait: Austin is a very resourceful and confident individual. His curiosity is matched only by his defiance. He is not afraid to step on a few toes or question his superiors. Some people will simply walk around the wall that's in their path, Austin will build a thermal drill and cut right through that bitch.

    Other Important Information- He may seem big and tough, but when you get right down to it, Merrick is usually a pretty decent guy. He doesn't act stuck up like other Dauntless initiates.

  15. Mine is nearly done but I'll be adding onto her along the way :)
    • Like Like x 1
  16. @Shattered♦Secrets™ -your profiling is on fleek! Approved.
    @Shayla -that's fine by me
    @Dreamever - nice picture choice;Freema (I don't know how its spelled) is a great actress, and played the best 10th Doctor companion in my opinion. Got some useful skills on your character too. Aproved
    • Thank Thank x 2
  17. Got some serious Erudite skills right there that can easily be Dauntless-ified. Approved
  18. Thank you, I'll be working on it today, and hopefully get most of it finished.

    I added the Marie Antoinette because I may or may not have plans for someone changing hair colors from his stress, that and it makes it easier to have a char with white/silver hair and still having a realistic photo.
  19. Sounds like a really cool idea; his hair will be having a rave party during the simulations though! Xp
