  1. Have you ever wondered what is like to live inside a computer/video game? What would change and what would stay the same? What if you had a chance to become the person you always wished you could be? To show others your prowess and skill? Well now you can. But once you are in, will you be able to get out?

    The story i have planned is in the same vein as the anime Sword Art Online and the manwha The Gamer. A group of gamers are transported from the real world to a virtual one. Once in the virtual reality, they must use their respective gaming skills to survive and win. There is a large variety of gamers. Ranging from first person shooters to MOBA style gamers. Feel free to be creative and make a unique gamer.

    -No godmodding or metagaming
    -No Hijacking posts or scenes
    -Be respectful and courteous.
    -Post length must be at least 1 paragraph, preferably 2

    History:
    Born in America, Erik grew up in a normal family household. When he was 14 he was introduced to video games by several of his friends. He immediately fell in love with them and developed a special affinity with first person shooter games. As he grew older, Erik became even more engrossed with FPS games. He got the latest console and played both classic shooters from his youth to the brand new FPS shooters that had just been released. Now in college, Erik spends his days between studying for school and playing FPS games. But mostly playing games.
    Personality:
    Erik considers himself one of the more rational FPS gamers. This means that he only rages every once in awhile. Otherwise he is cool and collected, along with the occassional instance of immature humor.

    Real Life Gender: Male
    History:
    Alexander was introduced to strategy games while young, Not online or digital ones, but games like Risk and chess. He very quickly took to them and after some time found that Real Time Strategy on the PC and the Turn Based Strategy were far more in depth and interesting. Winning the Starcraft world championships several times in a row set him apart from other gamers. though he did his best to remain down to earth and avoid making others feel 'below' him. Having dropped out of collage to become a full time gamer he is comfortable with his life.

    Personality: Alexander is calm, calculating and analytical. At least while in game, while out of game he's calm, warm, and kind and thoughtful, He enjoys a combination of classical music and heavy metal as well as daydreaming up new (somewhat crazy) strategies for his games.

    Made for Maps: The buildings, and Minions, change size to suit the map or area that they are in.

  4. Real Life Name: Kyrie Bryant

    Real Life Age: 19

    Real Life Gender: Female

    History: Born into a family of four, three boys, one girl, Kyrie, the youngest was pulled into the gaming life to keep up with the others, starting off with roleplaying games and strategy games that the four used to play into all hours of the night in turns. This small start transformed into a love of roleplaying and strategy games, that really hid Kyrie’s love for fighting and leveling up. Around high school, she was moved in with her oldest brother for personal reasons, and all that she really managed to take with her were clothes and games. Now in college, Kyrie somehow maintains games and clothes in her collection of personal things, a bookshelf of RPG games being the centerpiece of her room. And a small basket of clothes somewhere nearby that get washed daily.

    Personality: can have a more domineering, stoic, lonely personality, often straying off and keeping to herself seeing that interactions as only needed when mandatory, that’s her outside of the game though. Inside the game, she takes a more open, warm, motherly persona, trying to get everyone to work as a team, and all together, and fight as one. She does carry a more reckless abandon for herself though.

    Game Name: Leoda

    Game Title/Type of Gamer: RTS, Adventure, RPG, Open World

    Game Gender: Female

    Appearance:
    7c39ec6b642c92dca53ad142c5dcdf19.jpg

    Weapons: Often relies on either dual-wielding blades or Larger longswords, this serves to allow her mobility and range when getting up close with the enemy, or having to cover her weaknesses

    Abilities:
    Berserk: in exchange for stronger hits and more chances for critical hits, she takes more damage to herself
    Graveyard tactics: With a boost in speed, and in exchange for strength, every hit can give health to Leoda, for a short period of time.
    Shark-bait: Can lure enemies and bait them to take heat away from others.

    Drawbacks:
    Reckless Charge: often charges into battles as first offense, either tactically or out of solo habit
    Zero Defense: Never a defender, often takes hits and powers through, worries only about health when its low
    Bait: Due to reckless fighting style, often becomes target for enemies, loses health too often, too fast.

    Ultimate Ability:
    Shadow Dance: One time, one use, able to enact series of at least five critical hits or more(depending on magic levels) to either multiple enemies or main boss enemy.

  5. Alright looks good so far. I am trying to get one more person then we will start.
     
  6. Ok guys, after giving it some thought i am going to change the CS sheet a little. Passive abilities will now be renamed to just abilities and you can have 4 of them. Since i realize that certain types of games have multiple weak abilities and one ultimate.

  7. I'm interested in this and I think I'll give it a go, though I'm afraid I'm not certain how my Activity will be. If I feel like I'm not able to focus too well I will back out with no issues, since I wouldn't want to hold up the RP for my own sake.

  8. Alright sounds good
     
  9. Sadly I've decided that I cannot invest enough time into this to make it worth it for the rest of you, with activity requirements of at least one post a week and only 2 days free time usually per week and other RPs occupying my time. Though this RP looks really good and I hope you have a good time with it, thank you anyways.
     
  10. Alright, thanks for the interest
     
  11. ok guys. I am going to make a healer then start the rp. i will leave the signups open in case anyone else wants to join.
