We're not really hitting children. A little bit. Okay, a lot. Fuck it, call CPS and a SWAT team. Anyway, it might be worth noting that this RP is rated MA 18+. For what you ask? Oh, just a few things. Drug and alcohol use, excessive violence and gore, liberal sexual content (do as you please in this particular category. If you prefer not to distract others from your main writing with sex, you can avoid it entirely or do a fade to black. But then again, if you're into hardcore threesomes, I'm not stopping you there either. Just keep in mind your age), language, and everything else illegal under the Sun. Hitkids Plot: Where are we? New York City, 2020. Whose story do we tell? A group of 6 children, teens, and young adults, all orphans with no idea who their parents were, many of them simply not caring. All they know is safety in numbers. And survival of the fittest. Collectively, they are in the list of the Top 10 list of assassins in the world, half of them cracking the Top 5. They work separately and together, depending on the situation. Recreationally, they participate in gang operations, drug dealing and cooking, smuggling, and the educational system. These "Hitkids" (my mix of the Boondocks, Maximum Ride, and Saints Row) spend their days balancing their criminal careers with their social lives. And being forced to live with each other in the Safe House, an abandoned warehouse located off the grid outside of NYC (travel managed by relying upon the elder drivers). But now things are coming dangerously close to the edge. The FBI is closing in, rival assassins seeking to advance themselves hunt for them, and to be honest... Prom is intimidating. Setting We will exit NYC at some points, but only temporarily. Otherwise, you're stuck in the Big Apple. CS Name: (No last names. We don't know who we are beyond the names we gave ourselves) Age: (12-21) Appearance: (Photo please) Personality: Pseudonym: (Who takes a kid seriously? Each assassin has a false name that is presented to employers to hold the knowledge that they are children secret) Specialty: (All of the Kids are skilled martial artists and are highly intelligent, as well as being reasonably well-rounded with most weapons. This asks what exactly do they favor? Guns? Knives? Bombs? Fists? You decide. And note: Once someone chooses a specialty, no one else can have it) Signature: (What do they leave behind when they kill? Decapitation? Mutilation? This is tied to your specialty) Some Basic Rules: Relationships: No roofies. If you want to ship your character with another person's, get their permission first, don't just throw it on them. Sex is allowed, fade to black is optional. No sex involving under 16 year old characters. 16-17 is a necessary fade to black. This rule doesn't apply for a secondary character or NPC (Sex still does, but you can do whatever kinky stuff you want with your characters). Writing Skill: I'm sick of being subliminal. WRITE WELL. Remember your punctuation, paragraphs (at least 1 per post, 5-8 sentences. This doesn't apply in PvP posts in order to avoid puppeteering), grammar, etc. It grinds on a lot of other people (namely me) when we have to read poorly written stuff on something I want to look and turn out good (I'm not talking content. Not everyone can come up with really, really good posts on the spot. But PLEASE. Punctuation, spelling, grammar, the works). This might seem bossy and jerkish, but how would you feel if I did this on one of your RPs? Posting Speed: I'll be a little lenient here. One post per week, more if you care to. But don't start doing massive chain posts and exclude everyone else. Death: There will only be 6 of us (Check it. SIX. SLOTS). Be very careful if you plan on getting injured. If you die, we will weep for your loss. But otherwise, you'll be gone. High-risk. Rule-Breaking: In any cases of breaking the rules, both parties (or one if only one person is involved, either perpetrator or victim) must appeal to me directly. No comment fights. But here's a list: A) Relationships: Breaking the mentioned rule will result in an immediate command to either end the attempt or officially okay it with the writer behind the other character. Failure to do so results in a ban. B) Writing Skill: This is an absolute no-no. If you know that you can't write well [and I'm not talking content wise. We have different capabilties when it comes to writing a story. Some just aren't too good, while others are Literature Gods (most of the admins)], don't bother applying. It would just end badly. C) Posting Speed: Prolonged absence (over a week) will result in a PM warning. Failure to reply and explain absence will result in banjection. You will receive the PM 24 hours after absence is noted (one week of no posts), and will have 48 hours to respond. If you are likely to be gone for a long period of time, PM me and leave yourself in a position in the RP that would explain an absence. You'll be free to rejoin upon your return. Oh, and if you are banned, either we kill you off or erase every trace of your existence. D) Death: I may reconsider (if I decide to allow in a new character) kicking out the dead and allowing them to write a new character. Might. Might.
