  1. heres the RP: http://www.iwakuroleplay.com/showthread.php?t=20538&p=542577#post542577

    Well here goes nothing! this is the first RP Ive ever made, and i am now giving it a second shot at life! i made this back in July, and for a first RP it went well, so now its my first RP after switching to to this site!

    ~You, your friends, your family...or maybe its just you, are on a cruise. this is a cruise celebrating diversity, because the world has finally excepted the "gifted" as equals. the cruise is going well, all seem to be enjoying themselves, however one evening there's an awful storm. though you think the storm might be the end, some people are lucky. as the ship meets with a jagged rock some people scramble for life boats, the others use their "gifts" to help them escape. those who didn't have the right type of ability, or the chance to find a life either lost their lives being swept out to sea, or find themselves carried by the waves to a nearby island. whether you have some sort of "gift" or not, you're stuck, lost on an island that could easily be mistaken for a tropical paradise, if it wasn't completely deserted. how many people washed up? who knows, and how long will you last?

    ok, as far as the "gifts" go, they are completely optional, i just thought they would add a twist to the story, and besides this is how the original was.


    ~keep the gore to a minimum, i know its survival but i don't want someone getting fed to the sharks and being ripped limb from bloody limb.
    ~ please be reasonable with your gift, no "nuke the universe" powers. XD
    ~this is very genre flexible, if you want to go on a jungle island excursion, hunt like a wild man or even fall in love and propagate a whole jungle village be my guest...just have fun!

    my biggest rule: HAVE FUN!

  12. [MENTION=4251]Georgia[/MENTION], accepted, start when youre ready!
  13. Name: Lusterless Nova

    Age(no age limits): 22

    Gift: Nova has 3 Skills that he combines for combat. Swordsmanship, Magic, and the Chaos force.
    Swordsmanship: Nova uses his own fighting style. He moves quick and slashes with his short sword in his right hand while casting spells or using chaos in his left hand. Big or slow enemies will have a hard time dealing with him. Thanks to his high speed reflexes he can ether dodge or block incoming projectiles as long as their mass is not too big.
    Magic: His magic is used mostly for defense. This ranges from shields and barriers to simple spells.
    Chaos Force: The chaos force is a energy source. Unlike energies like KI, it is not drawn from the user.
    This fact allows nova to use near infinite amounts of chaos. But the output is limited to the users stamina. If he reaches that limit he becomes exhausted and has to rest for a while.
    Chaos can be used for many different things.
    Currently known uses are Energy blasts, projectiles, beams, regeneration and even teleportation

    He likes to help others and even protects caravans and other travelers when they have the same destination. At his best times he is just and protective. At his worst stubborn and Authoritarian.
    He is often found diving into a book or spending hours working on a project. Although he trusts his own ears more then rumors he is a bit naive and will at least doubt rumors that he thinks are interesting.
    While he tends to be booksmart as opposed to streetsmart, he also tends to be a tad socially awkward, but he still somehow manages to help his friends and family with their problems.
    He cares very much for his friends and tends to hide his own problems when he knows that they would be worried because of it.

    Despide this nature he has a somewhat cold personality. It takes time and trust for him to warm up to others.

    Background: Nova grew up in a village that is hidden from civilization, and surrounded by a forest. He had a quiet life there and learned from his father how to use the Chaos force, while his mother taught him magic.
    At the age of 12 he learned how to use those powers, but he had yet to learn how to fully master them. In order to do so he left his home, after making himself a own sword, and became a traveler at the age of 15.

    As he came back 3 years later, his village was under attack. He did not pay attention for a moment and fell on the ground. His head hit something hard and made him pass out. Thanks to this he survived, since he remained hidden in the nearby forest.
    As he woke up, everything was destroyed and the villagers were dead. He searched for the house he grew up in, but his worst fear were sadly confirmed. His parents lied there dead before him.
    He remained there for a few days to give the villagers a proper burial and collect any knowledge that was not destroyed. As he was done, he destroyed the remains of his old home to leave the past behind him.

    He is a traveler who seeks a meaning for his life. Whenever he has a chance, he takes some jobs to make some money. If that is not possible he camps outside and eats what nature has to offer.
    Being a traveler taught him many things. He knows how to survive in the hardest environments, cook with nothing but a pot, and how to identify poisonous plants.

    Stuff they had when they were tossed/jumped overboard: His clothes, a amethyst necklace, his short sword, a coin purse.

    -Luckily he is not uneducated. He knows most of the stuff that is taught at school, and complex facts about supernatural powers. This makes him a good strategist and clever fighter. If the enemy has a weak spot, he will find it.
    -Instead of striking power, he relies on speed and defense. This is complimented by his own fighting style.
    -If separated from his sword, he will use chaos and magic, along with some strong kicks.
    -He might be a human but isn't sure of it himself.
    -His magic is violet and chaos is dark blue.

  14. Lusterless you are accepted, just dont over do it with all the magic stuff. i love how detailed you are in your character descriptions!
  15. [MENTION=3583]ProjectONI616[/MENTION], ive fixed my post to reply to yours now
  16. Got it. I will use those abilities to a certain extend. Since this may be my first rp, it is also a good opportunity to set my own limits.
    In case i go overboard let me know and i will ether edit or remove my post. Nothing is more fun taking then a OP character if you ask me.

    And thank you. I love it when a character description leaves as less spots for questions as possible. Glad to see that there are some users here who notice that hard work.
