  1. A man who is probably in his mid fifties strikes is seen on a camera. He appears to be in deep thought, ignoring the camera entirely. It's clearly a small space of some sort with chemicals in bottles and test tubes covering the entirety of the walls. Behind the man is a door that is slightly ajar. You can see into it. There are cyborgs. Cyborgs are being built and you can here the sound of drills and machinery. Bubbling noises begin to fill your ears and every so often you hear a scream. After several long intense moments, the man gets up to shut the door and then begins to speak to the camera. A black cat appears on the screen and makes room for itself on the man's shoulder.

    "Hello all. Let me be the first to welcome you to Project B.R.L.A.C (Ber - lack) Bio technologically Repaired and Lethally Armed Cyborgs. I am the founder of this project and my name is Nomura, Hideki. I go by Dr. Nomura to my Cyborgs and by Hideki to my family. If you're here, I have some terrible news. You're probably almost dead. In fact, you're so close to death, that doctors have probably given up hope on your survival, but not me. No certainly not me. I am here to help you reclaim the life that was almost taken from you. I have saved you from a situation that had been deemed hopeless. I've given you enhancements that will allow you to do death defying things on a daily basis. You're armed. You could easily wipe out an entire block if you so chose to. What you do with all your power is up to you now.

    On the other side of the spectrum, you could have come to me on your own accord. In which case, that is marvelous. Healthy humans seem to react to enhancements a bit better than someone who is nearly dead. The only down side is that it's considerably more painful to healthy subject.

    Now I'm sure you're wondering, what's the goal of Project B.R.L.A.C? Well, as an inventor, I've created several things, but something I've created has gone awry. It's entirely robotic and has a mind of its own. Her name is FI and she's constantly learning. I created it years ago, but now it's come to its prime. It wants to wipe out the human race as it sees robots as superior beings to humans. As its creator I know how to destroy it, but if I get anywhere near it, it would destroy me.

    I need the subjects of Project B.R.L.A.C to find this robot and bring her to me so that I may destroy her. I fear that she may have armies of robots that she created herself. Unfortunately, they are not as successful as their creator, but each day she is getting closer. If she creates an exact replica of herself, I fear for humanity. She could be anywhere, but do not worry, I will keep in contact with you whenever I get a hunch on where she might be, but be careful, her robots are actively looking for you and they will kill you any chance they get. Try to minimize casualties, I'd like it if humans continued to donate to my cause.

    Lastly, it's the year 3049 and the date is Thursday, December 24th. Technology has advanced considerably as far as entertainment is concerned, but the medical field has advanced considerably, but very slowly. There's been an increase in murders and no culprits to show for, but we know it's the work of FI and her creations. She's going for an all out Genocide and she's doing it quickly. Please, if any of my cyborgs are seeing this, help humans survive..."

    The camera cuts off and the screen turns black.

    SOOO, in short and hopefully easier to follow explanation, you're a Cyborg created by Dr. Nomura either by choice or because you were almost dead. There's a highly dangerous and highly lethal A.I. Robot by the name of Fi that's out to eliminate the human race as it stands. Since you are part human, you don't exactly have to do what Dr. Nomura says. You have your own free will and if you wanted to ignore the turmoils of the human race you could, but there would be repercussions as Fi's robots would still try to actively search for and kill you.

    This RP begins in Japan, but as the story continues, Fi becomes more of a worldwide problem. So your character could be from any country you wanted them to. I'm not sure how far or how great this RP will be as it's still a work in progress and I'm continually working out plot holes and designing a world for your characters to interact in. That being said, expect the start time of this RP to be one week at the EARLIEST. Well thought out characters will flourish here so if you've got a character you LOVE and know really well, this would be the time to bring them out.

    Something else, each cyborg is designed for a specific purpose. For example, is your cyborg designed to be a weapon or a mechanic. Some cyborgs are even designed to help humans recover from injuries sustained from skirmishes with Fi's robotic minions. Later on, I will explain the significance of these designs.

    In your character sheets, there will be something known as a requested enhancements, meaning you can request something to be added to your character's arsenal. For example, you could request to have more speed. You could request to have more strength, intelligence, have a jet pack, etc. Whatever your mind can think of and Dr. Nomura will either reject or accept your enhancements. You get a maximum of three extra enhancements.

    All cyborgs are waterproof.

    Character sheets will look a little something like this:

    If you're interested, just post down below. Character Sheets are not to be posted here as this is just an interest check.

    I stole @Kestrel 's character sheet format. So I'd like to give them credit even though they don't know I used it.
     
    • Love Love x 1
  • This sounds awesome! ^^
     
  • Sounds interesting but I'm a little confused as to why there's more than one character sheet. We're only cyborgs, right? I'd imagine there'd only be one character sheet for that. What point of view are we writing in? What's the writing level going to be? Do you have any writing/posting expectations (i.e. posting speed, minimum paragraphs or sentences, proper grammar and spelling, etc.)
     
  • Potentially interested as well, but I agree with Alexa on the multiple character sheets. It's confusing and does seem like it'd be quite a hassle, especially if someone wants quick reference when they are role playing.

    Otherwise it seems intriguing. I suggest you come up with a set of rules just to show everyone what might be expected of them. Amongst other things the writing style and requirements.
     
    • Like Like x 2
  • I agree with the questions of what skills are required and such.

    However, I believe it's just one CS split into different sections.
     
  • That could be possible, but still unnecessarily complicated. Since we would only be playing in cyborg form, it would be unnecessary to have to state and find a picture for an appearance that won't ever be used. Only an opinion though.
     
    • You Get a Cookie You Get a Cookie x 1
  • It's all one character sheet. Those are just the sections. Because if you only filled out the cyborg portion, I would know almost nothing about your character's history or human life.

    It will be written in third person and the writing level is intermediate. As far as writing/posting expectations, at least one post every five days. I would prefer there not be one liners. I encourage proper spelling/grammar. The minimum number of paragraphs is one, but more is always welcome.
     
    • Thank Thank x 1
  • My point was to have an in depth character. The reason it's split into sections is simply for organization purposes.

    Without the sections it looks something like this.

  • What are we supposed to put down for the cyborg's biography? Wouldn't the biography of us, as a cyborg, be played throughout the roleplay since we, as humans, became cyborgs? Or have we been living as cyborgs for a long time? How would the personal questions accommodate to creating an in-depth character?
     
  • There's only one biography portion and it refers to your life before you became a cyborg. As in what made your character who they are today? I would assume that unless you specifically note in your biography, you haven't been a cyborg for much time at all. I don't think I put down anything referring to a cyborg biography.
     
  • Oh, my bad. I got confused somehow. Do you have an idea of how the personal questions would accommodate to creating an in-depth character?
     
  • By personal questions, are you referring to the "You" section? That in particular helps better the Roleplay itself. It helps me as a GM, understand the players' wants/needs and the players themselves. It's technically optional, but both parties would benefit by filling it out.
     
  • Can I join in this? I have always loved doing scifi RP like this. I wanna play a cyborg. I already have a name in mind.

    Appearance: 6'1 and 185lbs (Before Augmentations)

    Birthday and Age:2973

    Nationality: Russian

    Personality: He's a fighter and a rule breaker, but he has a good heart. His goal is to survive but make friends along the way. While he may seem cold on the outside he's practically a teddy bear when you get down to it. He will select the under dog in a fight and battle it out until he cant fight any longer. While he has little regard for his own life he appreciates the lives of those who have befriended him.

    Likes: Alcohol, Danger, Fire

    Dislikes: Major Religions, People, Bunnies.

    Why you're a cyborg: Drunk and playing with explosives got him where he is. Lost the majority of his entrails, left arm, left leg, right leg, and severe spinal damage.

    Biography: Born to none and left on a doorstep he grew up in an orphanage in a rough part of the country. He grew tough from beatings from the older boys in the orphanages and eventually grew to the size that he was the one giving the beatings, and it was around this time he started noticing he was slightly different from his bunkmates, he was more dangerous. After he reached the age of 16 they were legally no longer allowed to keep him in their care and he took to the streets, stealing, pickpocketing and fighting for money just to get a good meal in. Eventually he grew very fond of the under ground, and started making more money fighting. He attended parties with people that he had no doubt the women at the orphanage would not approve of, he found himself turning to alcohol often and waking up with bruises he couldnt remember getting.

    He soon took to getting tattoos, each detailing things from his life, it ended up that he was getting a new one nearly everyone week. It became him fighting just to finish the masterpiece, just to make himself something that someone would give two glances at if they found him on the side of the road. Soon he ran out of room on his body and shaved the sides of his head in order to put more tattoos on his head, he couldnt help it but it was therapeutic to him.

    The next day he was in the tattoo parlor again, touching up the tattoos that had been damaged by the cut. He thought back to the man and was still confused about it, he asked the owner of the parlor for a drink and the man came back with a bottle of vodka and shot glasses. Nikolai graciously accepted as was the custom in Russia even in the worst parts, he gladly drank many shots and got a phone call from a friends of his who had found a shipment of fireworks. He got in his friends car when he came to pick him up, and alcohol and fireworks mixed, one lit off more and the whole car went up in fire, then an explosion, then cyborg.

    Date of Creation: 3000

    Cyborg Description: [​IMG]

    What do you expect from this RP and from me as a GM?
    A fair GM who doesnt take favorites in arguments, A good time and room to exert my writing ability.

    Are you looking for more Action or Romance or both?
    A little of both but not too much of Romance.

    I like to put a fair amount of work into each post provided I have plenty to work with.
