  1. (Just a note that the LGBT and Sexual Themes tags are there just because stuff like that is okay. Doesn't mean you gotta be gay or wanting to bang everything. Of course anything past "PG-13" should be moved to PM. Also, at least initially, all of our characters are part of the same group of scavengers. Just come from town and meet up with Exclamation.)

    The OOC for the RP with tons of info is here!)

    Optional Character Sheet (open)

    Exclamation Point (open)

    Name: Exclamation Point (Even as a child she was pretty loud and excitable.)
    Sex: Female
    Concept: An excitable girl with a knack for machines and the burning desire to find a working tank because holy shit, that'd be cool.
    Appearance: A tan skinned woman with her black dreads tied back. She has brown eyes. She wears a tanker helmet, heavy duty boots, a bomber jacket, and patchwork pants, sewn from several rags. She also wears her backpack with her toolbox clipped to it.
    Equipment: Wrench, crank rifle (with bolts), toolbox, backpack, cool lighter, half a pair of binoculars,

    Exclamation Point sat at the edge of town waiting for her companions to join her. They were a group of scavengers and adventurers, exploring the Junkyard Earth to find whatever scrap they thought would sell or was interesting. Most of the time they found mundane things. Those strange handled helmets, (though some people decided to cook with them. Weirdos, right?), metal boxes with slides and two slots (what the hell do you put in there?), reflective disks that make pretty good jewelry but nothing else. Still, they occasionally found something cool. Like that glass ball with the snow inside it! Or the flat book that was actually many books!

    Exclamation stood up from the little dirt pile she' been sitting on and looked back towards the town, holding her hand above her eyes to block the sun. They should be out any time now.

  2. Top Kek (open)
    Name: Top Kek (His parents found an old ad....)
    Sex: Male
    Concept: A slightly naive yet hardened young man with a knack for improvised weapons and traps.

    Equipment: Duffel bag, an old cattle prod, made after the Collapse and covered in crude wires, a 'boombox' (Small metal suitcase, stuffed with gunpowder, needles, and thumbtacks, with a crude string fuse shoved into the top), flint and steel, heavy metal spray canister filled with cleaning fluids and old pre-Collapse bug poison, primitive oil lamp.

    Kek sprinted from the small village, running at full speed down to his compatriot. He waved as he got closer to Point (As he called her. Her full name was a pain to say....), finally stopping about ten feet away and holding onto his knees, catching his breath. "Hey....hey Point! Sorry I'm late......couldn't find my......I still haven't thought of a name for this...." Kek says, pointing at the spray can on his side. He really wanted to find new components on this run.....more boombox items, or new things to spray in people's eyes with the canister.....stuff like that!

He is usually shy but having met his friends he has opened up, revealing a childish demeaner and out look on life. Adding to his child like personality he loves keeping unique treasures he finds.

    Allegretto ran on all fours, he knew he was late! He hated that he was easily distracted but, those plants just looked to pretty and not to mention they can help if one of them got sick.

    He sighed as he saw Exclamation and Kek "Guys!! Guys you'll never guess what I found!" He said slowing down and skidded to a stop in front of them. He stood up and reached into his bag holding up a white flower with a yellow center "This called Feverfew! I collected a bunch of these, they are good for headache relief and joint inflammation!" He said as his voice quivered with excitement.

    Solar slowly made her way back to the groups meeting point. She was especially taking her time because there were rumors that this site was where a building that held thousands of books once stood. She wanted to search every detail of the place but she knew they were waiting for her. She grudgingly picked up her pace vowing to return. She spotted her group a couple of feet away and yelled to make her presence known. "Hey guys, i'm back sorry it took me so long, I didn't find any books this time, just this stuff." She jogged the rest of the way to the group and pulled out a dust covered glass bottle full of liquid, then she wiped off the dust from the label using her hand. "Apple... Cider. I didn't open it, I wanted to show you guys first. I don't know what it is, but it might be juice, it says apple, what do you guys think?" She held out the bottle for their inspection.
  8. Allegretto awes at the little cat as his tail flicks happily "Yah, I found a bunch of strange planets but I have yet to look them up." He adds, he suddenly turns facing Solar as she run up to them.

    When she reached them and showed them the bottle "Do you really think it taste like apple?" He asked looking up his nose twitching at the smell of dust.
  9. Solar squinted her eyes. "I don't know but we should try it when we get home. What are we doing next?"
  10. "Not sure, I think Ex wants us to wait for the others some more before we head out." the fox says in a thoughtful tone.
  11. "Probably." Chevron says, picking up the cat.

    "wait up you guys" said Couch as he jogged up to them "its hard for me to keep up when im lugging this thing around".
  13. "WE're not goin' anywhere. No worries." Chevron says. "Found a Cat! gonna name him Oliver."
  14. "I think Oliver is a good name!" Allegretto said happily as he tugged off his violin.
  15. "Just hope we can feed the poor guy..."
  16. Allegretto gave his friend a smile "I'm positive we'll be able too."
  17. "Good. I haven't had a pet in ages..." He says, rubbing the cat between the ears.
  18. Allegretto smiles as he finished tuning his violin "Oliver is lucky to have you for a master."
  19. Chevron giggles, nuzzling the cat. "As he should be. I'm Exelent!"
  20. "He's a cute little guy" Observed couch as he lightly pet the cat "all i found is some scrap metal, but we could potentially sell it to a craftsman or something to make something off it"
