  1. Welcome to Beacon Academy, you are all here for one purpose. To learn from the best how to protect those who cannot protect themselves. You are the top one percent of all combat students in Vale; the best of the best. We'll make you better. Here at Beacon, you will receive the best training to combat the worst horrors of the Grimm.

    We will begin exactly where Volume One did, on the airship beginning its descent into Beacon. All of our characters will be in the same class as the main characters of the series. Some sequences will be longer than they appeared in the series. Beacon staff, antagonists, and other NPC characters will be present, but the main story of teams RWBY and JNPR will not exist. We will be following our own story. Teams will be decided randomly by me.
    My co-GM will be Kakumei.

    Please follow this character skeleton for creation.

    Pairings:
    Carmine-Michael
    Rusty-Mizuki
    Individual Characters:

    Michael Chernya-ShatteredSkies
    Michael Chernya (open)
    Name: Michael Chernya
    Nickname: N/A
    Age: 18
    Appearance:http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140114024851/halo/images/e/e9/Fred-104.png
    6' of wiry, rugged muscle. Short black hair and dark eyes. He has a few facial scars, and several others all over his body from training. Slashes, gunshot wounds, the medals of hard training. Just below his collar on his neck is a tattooed barcode and serial number. He wears dark gray cargo pants, spitshined rubber-soled leather boots, a black tee, and a gray tactical vest.
    Weapon:
    Asynchronous Linear Induction Sniper System (ALISS)
    Form One: http://i.ytimg.com/vi/P8jUf-yTlCQ/maxresdefault.jpg
    A high power railgun, effective to up to three miles. Devastating to soft and lightly armored targets. He carries the scope and rifle assembly on his back when using ALISS as a sword. The swords are the barrel of the weapon, conducting the electromagnetic current and launching the projectile. The weapon has a 5 round capacity, with magazine and battery having to be replaced at the same time. Due to the high weight of the batteries, Michael only carries three reloads.
    Form Two: http://i.imgur.com/S5q9jOL.png
    The barrel of ALISS ejects to become two longswords made from a dense, superconducting material.
    Semblance:
    Michael can disappear from view. His Semblance is not invisibility, per se, but simply an ability to be unnoticed.
    Strengths:
    One Shot, One Kill: Because of his proficiency with his weapons system, he can achieve quick kills over long range.
    Field Commander: He can take control of a situation easily and direct his teammates to a quick victory, hasty retreat, or any maneuver as needed
    Ranger: He has been trained to lead, and employ all the assets he has in order to win.
    Weaknesses:
    Emotionally Broken: Emotions not related to survival or combat are hard for him to grasp.
    Brutally Honest: He is incapable of lying
    Jumpy: When confronted with a situation he has never dealt with before, he will fall back on his training. A well meaning joke can end up a trip to the hospital.

    Brief Biography: Michael was born in Atlas, and at age six was abducted by a scientist. She believed that the Atlas strategy to take humans off the battlefield and replace them with robots was misguided. So, she kidnapped several dozen children and put them through a brutal military indoctrination and training program. At thirteen, the program was discovered, and shut down. Authorities in Atlas could not let such an inhuman program come to light, so Michael and the other thirty six children were separated, underwent chemical treatment to clear their memories, then removed to the other kingdoms. Michael was dropped in Vale, and was homeless for a couple months before earning a spot in a combat school.
    Other information: He carries an old picture of a snow covered farm, something he was given but never knew what it meant. He also carries a baggie of coffee beans, which he chews on for alertness. His last name means "black" in Russian.

    Rusty Burns-Xytheus
    Rusty Burns (open)

    Name: Rusty Burns

    Nickname: Sledge Hammer

    Color: Red

    Age: 19

    Appearance: Comment #33 added by thereasonableperso at thereasonableperso's profile
    Minus the sword and ornate designs on the armor. He also has a large straight scar down the left side of his face. (I experienced problems getting the link to work. It should work now. If it doesn't I don't know what to do.)

    Weapon: His weapon, Double Down, is a heavy hitter. Its first form is a large black backpack with a machine concealed inside. It weighs around 130 pounds and he swings it at any foes that dare come close. The second form gets a little more deadly. The machine within the backpack unfolds into a double-barreled 40mm bofors anti-aircraft (or in this case anti-grimm) cannon, that he holds over his shoulder.

    Semblence: Strength. He can lift around 1000 pounds.

    Strengths: Incredibly strong, knowledgable on just about any weapon and master of many arts of war.

    Weaknesses: Not very smart, rash, clumsy.

    Brief Biography: Rusty was born in Vale but he grew up in a small settlement outside the city, you know, the ones that have a habit of disappearing. It was the rough life from day one. As soon as he was old enough to carry a weapon he was fighting grimm and hunting wildlife. He was 18 when the settlement was sieged by ancient and powerful grimm. He was the only survivor. Now on the day after his 19th birthday he starts his first day at Vale.

    Other information: Rusty is a very warm hearted individual despite the recent tragedy he survived. He tries not to let negativity get to him. He also likes to carry a few sticks of gum with him

    Combat Outfit:

    (On the Left)



    Casual Outfit:



    3) Characteristics:


    Background: To be discovered



    Personality: Carmine can easily be described as an overly Fiery individual with a personality and emotional state to go along with it. She is an unpredictable as the element she adores so much. Outside of this she is an overly loyal individual who seems to be as easy going as they come. Although she appears giddy most of the time she can easily fall into horrible fits of depression hinting towards a possible mental issue.

    Cats (Loves Cats)

    Extreme Heat

    Belligerent Individuals

    Plasma (Shes terrified of it even if her claws are made of it.)


    4) Weapon


    See second picture.


    Name: Talons of Horus

    Maker/Smith: Carmine and Prussian

    Type: Experimental

    Weapon Derivation: A cat with claws.. ?

    Holstered/Sheathed Appearance: Appears as a normal set of metallic gloves.

    Form 1: Two large gauntlets consisting of clawed fingers. Although small and not far reaching it is capable of rendering most armor and flesh useless for defense. The speed at which it is swung and used greatly affects the durability and cutting edge of the weapons making it almost required to move fast.



    Form 2:


    Twin Suns (open)


    This form of her weapon is especially deadly. Combining the durability of the Dust with her familys technology to create a Dust powered monstrosity. (This will come into play sporaticly) based off of a plasma concept.


    Features/Capabilities: Dust infusion allows for a far stronger resonance once in Twin Sun's fighting stance. Outside of this the blades of the standard form are durable enough to block blows from a grim.



    Planned/Possible Upgrades: To be seen.



    Notes: (trivia, name meaning, etc)


    5) Semblance:


    Name: By Fire be Purged

    Type: Elemental Stemming from Aura

    General description: Allows for creation, Manipulation and destruction of flames within a thirty foot radius of her. Is equally as dangerous as her touch can melt metal if she wanted to. She can also use it to propel herself around in bursts of speed in directions around her


    This can be divided into three parts. Red, Blue and the Currently unreached White heat.

    (She doesn't know she can reach White.)


    Each Step is a step up of the heat prodcued, controlled and manipulated by her.


    Red: During Red flames the heat produced by her can heavily burn regular people and unarmored grim. Also have a tendency to burn grass and dry leaves under her feet.


    Blue: Intensity tripled. Heat given out is capable of burning people standing nearby and can catch dry material on fire for five feet. The flames she wields are blue in color and burn through regular Armor.


    White-

    White heat's intensity is not measure. The heat given off on this can ignite trees within five feet of her and burn through almost any known armor. In this form her body seems consumed but her blows connect more often. (Think of a beserker rage.


    Most often can be found singing while using her semblance.


    General limitations: Although immune to almost all forms of heat she can be severely injured by exposure to the cold for to long. The more intense and heated the fire she makes the harder it is on her physical body.



    Visual effect:



    Passive ability(x): She is immune to most forms of heat. Can get very sick if in to cold of a room.



    If entering a room with no lights she seems to give off a slight glow.


    6) Combat info:


    Position/Class: Sun Dancer

    Landing strategy: Use flames to make herself hover for a period of time.

    Fighting style: Sun Dancer


    Strengths:


    Dancer:

    Carmine is able to adapt much of her dancing knowledge into a combat situation. That being said it takes the form of a hell bent dancer. She can be seen moving around an energy or dodging blows in ways that would make a man cringe in enormous pain.


    Jerry-Rigger:

    Throughout her life Carmine has had to develope things with the least amount of parts available to her just so her parents could check her progress. Due to this Carmine is very skilled at building useful objects out of randomlly found electronics, objects and even.. foliage.


    Sun Dancer:

    This strength alone is what makes Carmine a dangerous individual. Entirely immune to any type of fire, lava, heat or plasma she can wield her own weapons without having to worry about harming herself in any way. Considering her semblance this strength alone can prove to be a deadly one.. since she will never burn herself and can keep the field up until she passes out.


    Weaknesses:


    Common Sense:

    Some call Carmine a Ditz and a moron due to the fact that she has trouble with the simplest of things. Having been raised around a formidable education she was never taught many of the basic aspects of life. She can't cook, she can't figure out basic math easily... such as Division.


    Horrible curiosity:

    Driven by a unknown force Carmine can be often found trying to get her nose into places it doesn't belong. Much like a cat... she predicts one day that this may be her large undoing.. but she cant stop as she wants to know more and is willing to sneak into places to get it.


    The Cold:

    The single most life threatening thing to her life. Carmine needs to stay warm no matter what. If she is out in temperatures below that which is common in the summer she may begin to get sick. If it is winter and she is not bundled up she could die within an hour. She needs to stay warm as her body can not handle the cold.



    7) Trivia:

    Known for having a band in the past. The band had risen in popularity before disbanding due to her going to Beacon.


    Relationships: None yet

    If I have to post the full here I will, however it will be with a great shed of tears.

    I also did change things on the character sheet to make it work properly with your skeleton. (The 3 strengths and weaknesses)
     
  7. Alright, I have a love-hate relationship with your character.

    I like tanks, and especially knowing whats ahead, it would be a lot of fun to have a tank on the team. I like the fact you are trying to bring in the second best AA cannon in existance into play.

    On the other hand, he just seems way too OP. With his superhuman strength possibly (might need to do some Googling and fact checking, so dont quote/scream at me) akin to that of the Hulk or greater, he doesnt need a BOFORS cannon to be exceptionally lethal. I mean, he can basically melee one shot everything short of a Goliath. He has way too high strength in proportion to his flaws. My max strength I usually cap for normal, unaugmented humans is Yang. 20-30 tons just seems excessive. On another note, I cant see the BOFORS, no matter how strong, being an effective man portable weapon. Its recoil is way too high for anything over two or three shots, its rounds, if going to be carried in a meaningful quantity, are incredibly heavy. The heavier you are, the slower you can react to threats. So something jumps out from behind you, by the time you get that cannon on target, youre A) Dead B) Near dead and unable to bring your weapon to bear, C) The rest of the team has dealt with it, and you now have to turn back around to continue your advance. Thats why those heavy cannon systems are typically placed either in fixed locations or on ships.

    Like I said, I like him, but he needs some nerfing. If youre looking to scale down weapons, I can help. As you've probably seen and can tell, I'm a gun nut.
     
  8. I understand, and 30 tons does seem a bit OP in hindsight, but I feel like you're losing sight on the fact that this is based on a cartoon. Alot of the weapons in the series are very big and would normally be unwieldy, espcially Rubys scythe. Technology is also quite advanced so I imagine that modifications can be made to reduce recoil greatly. I'd also like to point out that the characters seem to pull a limitless amount of ammo out of nowhere.

    I see you're point in the strength needing nerfing but I think the gun is fine.
     
  9. Ruby's scythe is only effectively wielded by her and her uncle, Crowe. The reason she can effectively wield it is based on her Semblance, and the way she moves creates the momentum needed handle the weapon. Technically, she launches it with herself and lets momentum do the work. If you notice, she tends to get that thing stuck and has to muster strength to pull it out when the blade is caught. She also is effectively worthless without her scythe, while your character would be able to still handle battling.

    Don't get me wrong, RWBY is basically anime or cartoon. But I knew Monty well enough to know that everything he did was based technically on a physics engine. Every action and reaction fit within that realm of physics. Yang is probably the strongest physically within the cannon so far, at top peak strength with her Semblance, but she would easily punch herself out within a mere 5 minutes if she couldn't hit a target (like the battle with Neo), and still remained taking damage.

    If my math is accurate, Yang punches with about 30k lbs of force. Based on that, she could probably dead lift about 1200lbs with her Semblance at full strength. (MMA fighters punch with about 1600 lbs of force, and deadlift about 4 to 6 hundred on average.)

    Being able to deal with 20 to 30 tons of weight would probably have punching force somewhere between Goku and Superman.


    The only time characters seem to have limitless ammunition is when the ammunition is Dust-based. Ruby's scythe uses traditional ammunition, which is not dust based. While she has never exhausted her supply in battle, she has only every seemed to have a ridiculously unlimited amount of ammo in the RWBY- Red Trailer. In traditional battles, I don't think she has ever used more than 20 to 30 rounds of sniper rifle ammunition, and it seems to be somewhere between 6 and 8 rounds per cartridge. Dust ammunition seems to hold quite a bit more volume of usable ammunition, it does seem to be effectively weaker, nothing truly piercing like Ruby's sniper rifle. Yang's Ember Celica have never pierced objects, instead they seem to create concussive force upon impact.


    While I understand Ruby and her group tend to be particularly special and adept in the RWBY universe, we should be able to play comparatively to them. However, I don't think any of our characters should particularly exceed the canonized characters, except through perhaps rare uses of character specific Semblance.

    All in all of course, ShatteredSky has the final say. I just wanted to put in my input and analysis as I have a bit of an invested taste into the RWBY universe.

  10. As I said the strength will be nerfed. But I disagree on the physics part. There is a realm of physics but it is noticeably looser on the rules. For example the warthog that attacked the two robots in the season finale. That thing spun midair with no airspeed at one point, if I recall correctly. Of course that is probably magic.

    As for the ammunition. Ruby fires (I actually went back and counted.) a little over 12 rounds without reloading while fighting the Nevermore. She works the bolt but never changes the magazine. Nora also fires more than 8 rounds against the Death Stalker. Although, her weapon might be dust based. And I think dust might be more effective than you think. Mercury fires his shoe guns (I don't know what else to call them.) several times in the match against pyrrha. Definitely more rounds than the small mechanisms hold so it's probably dust ammunition. And in the last episode it only took one hit to the head for him to kill a small ursa.

    Just my thoughts on the matter.
     
  11. H Christ, I feel like I'm way over my head suddenly. Nah... Ill allow the BOFORS, just no bottomless clip.
     
  12. Roger that.
     
  13. Its loose if you are comparing it to physics based in our reality. Since we are talking about physics based in the RWBY universe, characters tend to have pretty basic methodology behind their movements. I doubt the warthog spinning in the air without proper momentum is probably explained more as an oversight than magic.

    Ruby firing 12 rounds might be just a maximum per magazine. It also might be more. But we know she does not have bottomless clips, as she is seen replacing magazines in the Red Trailer, which is the point I was making.

    I didn't say that Dust-based ammunition was ineffective. I said that they don't usually have piercing properties when being used in some way as projectiles. Mercury's shoe guns seem to create concussive force on impact more than being piercing as far as I can tell. Dust may also be a substitute for gunpowder in this universe as well. Perhaps why magazines seem to hold more ammunition than one would expect.


    The biggest point I am trying to make is everything seems to have an explanation for it. Penny is absurdly strong because she is a robot. Yang is as strong as she is because of her Semblance. Magic is somehow limited by Dust as well. All I am trying to look for is balance and explanations. Just saying things are the way they are because "they are" doesn't seem very reasonable or even interesting to me. But that is just how I feel personally.
     
  14. Is this still open? I have a CS for a character I can re-work to fit your CS.
     
  15. Im waiting for another response, but if I dont get one Ill let you have the last spot.
     
  16. Ive got this character we can use as a bit character if you want, or if we expand the amount of people we have participating we can use him on one of the other teams. Its up to you, he doesn't have to be in this at all. I just had him here to have him. Lol
     
  17. Sure, if we do decide to expand the RP. I have one maybe, and we just need to see how it goes.

    Oh and soonish Ill send you a PM with the plot info, twists and such
     
  18. @ShatteredSkies Feel free to give my spot to Angelic, i'm not as active on this site that much and i'd rather not just lose motivation in this. Angelic has proven to be more active and interested in RWBY RP's than i am, so go ahead and give it to them. Sorry for making you wait for nothing ^^
     
  19. If thats what you wish. But just know there will be a place for you if you want it here.

    That being said, go ahead and post a character. I will begin work on an IC.
