The Legend of the Bunker - OOC - Signups open

Discussion in 'ROLEPLAY GRAVEYARD' started by Andalais, May 2, 2014.

  1. Signups open - Two open spots to replace drop-out players
    Talk to someone of the legend and they'll probably dismiss it right off the bat. An urban myth, they say; a hopeful dream to give people something other to think of than survival on this nigh-barren wasteland of a planet. That's what most people will tell you. But I don't know, maybe more people believe in it, and just don't admit it. Who can blame them? Most fellows who yap about the legend are crazed coots and fools with no home and no coin in their pockets. But what if I were to tell you that the legend of the Bunker is more than just crazed jabbering? What if I were to tell that somewhere out in that unending, scorching, unforgiving desert, there is a great bunker, a magnificent structure, not built by human hands? And what if I were to tell that within that structure, deep within those dead catacombs, past long sealed doors, there really is a treasure, greater than in your wildest dreams? Well...you would dismiss me as another yapping madman, would you not? Or would you perhaps search for it, as so many fools have done in vain? Would you head into that dry wasteland of bandits and savage beasts, and be known as the one who found the legendary Bunker and claimed its greatest treasure?

    Backstory
    You are a descendant of the humans of Earth. Yet you have never seen that world, not even on picture; all you know of it are the stories told to you by your parents and grandparents. You live on planet Vespin - a large, barren, dry, hot world of sand, stone, dust and salt. It was once a colony to the great nations of Earth, you have heard. The stories tell that Earth was becoming severely overpopulated, and in an act of desperation, it's people took to the stars to seek a new home. Even after decades of searching, only a precious few worlds were ever found where they could settle down at all. Vespin was one of those places. With no other choice, the people settled down on Vespin 200 years ago. They built settlements by mountains and oases, built great walls to protect against storms and local predators. Vespin was as rough and unforgiving then as it is now. But it was home.

    But things soon changed for the worse. Rival nations on Earth, desperate for colony rights in order to ensure their own survival, started fighting wars over the new worlds. Vespin is today littered with the wrecks hundreds of thousands of warships that were destroyed in the many wars for the world. Then, a hundred years ago, everything went silent. Ships stopped arriving from Earth; those that were already there quickly left. Attempts at communication were fruitless. The wars ended, but they had left their mark. Technology, society, culture - all had been ravaged by the wars, and were reduced to a shadow of their former selves. The only pieces of the old technology found on Vespin today is found on the shipwrecks that dot the planet. The only form of any nations or governments that exist are independent settlements with surrounding farms, bandit clans, or wandering nomad tribes.

    A few years after Vespin lost contact with Earth, rumors started going of a great bunker built by alien lifeforms thousands of years ago was to be found deep beneath the sand somewhere on the planet. A bunker filled with unimaginable treasures. These rumors grew into myths, and the myths grew into the Legend of the Bunker. Many have searched for the bunker. All of them have failed, either died of starvation or killed by bandits or predators, or simply given up and returned home.


    Story
    Most people no longer believe in the Bunker and its supposed treasures. You are some of the few who still do. You are all childhood friends, some of you have known each other almost since birth. You live in the independent city of Makin. It is officially a democracy, but you all know that is not true. In Makin, the name of God is Mayor Garro Solomon. For the past twelve years, he has been the only available candidate in the elections, and his predecessor was the only one before him. Anyway, you have all dreamt your entire lives of becoming Rangers of Moro, the desert-dwelling superheroes of Vespin who scavenge the great wrecked ships in the desert and bring food, medicine, weapons and technology to the cities. Yes, you would all become Rangers, and you would be the greatest Rangers in history - you would find the legendary Bunker, and with the riches found there, you would be able to make life better, in your own city if nothing else. There will be many dangers and obstacles in your path, but you are confident that together, you can take on whatever this world can throw at you.

    Will you seek the Bunker and its riches?
    Right, so I believe you've understood pretty well what this game is going to be all about. This is going to be a group RP, with a minimum of 3 players, and ideal and maximum of 5 players, including myself and my friend Nathchi whom I reserved a spot for before starting all this up. So I am searching for 3 other players to join us in this game. Shooting bandits and hunting treasure with new friends, ho!

    Rules:
    - Decent spelling and grammar
    - Don't be an ass
    - Minimum main character age is 17; maximum is 22. Side character age is completely free.
    - No godmodding, of course.
    - Common sense
    - One main character per player. Players are allowed to have side characters, but these characters are not allowed to have any major impact on the story. Exceptions can be agreed on with the GM if you have an acceptable reason.
    - What I say goes; feel free to ask questions.
    - If I'm not around or a player otherwise has need of an NPC and wants them to behave in a certain way, they're allowed limited control over them. Just don't have them act drastically against their established characterization.
    Other than that, all global forum rules apply. Players are encouraged to discuss and plan things OOC. Not a rule, but I think everyone would appreciate it.


    Character sheet:
    Name:
    Gender:
    Age:
    Ethnicity:
    Appearance:
    (image and/or description; include both body and clothing)
    Personality:
    History:
    (optional)

    Please note that this sheet will represent how your character is in the main stage of the game. There will first be a prologue stage set five years before the main story. Another thing to keep in mind when creating your character is that they live on a desert planet, so they will want to have clothing that can protect against sun and sand. Dress skimpy and you'll get blisters and sand in your hair and eyes.

    Also, feel free to be creative when naming your character. People from all major Earth cultures moved to Vespin, and the planet has been more or less isolated for over 200 years, which means that pretty much anything goes. You can have a real, existing name, a name derived from such a name such as Garro (from Garry) or you can have a completely new name.

  2. Area information
    Will be expanded in the future

    Factions
    Republic of Makin (open)
    Type: Independent City
    Area: Red Rock Flats
    Leader: Mayor Garro Solomon
    Approximate population: 10,000-11,000
    Dominant languages: English
    General information: De jure a free democratic republic, de facto a military dictatorship. In Makin, the name of God is Mayor Garro Solomon. It is not terribly suppressing, however; as long as you follow the law, you tend to be fine. Makin is the place where you were all born, and the place where you all grew up. It's cramped and crowded, and sandstorms regularly sweep in despine the mountain behind you and the wall in front of you. Still, it's home.


    Hansa (open)
    Type: Trade federation
    Area: Red Rock Flats, The Saltflats
    Leader: The Hanseatic Council
    Approximate population: 80,000
    Dominant languages: German, English, French
    General information: A centralized union of 9 cities, from largest to smallest - Graustein, Dorman, Fairview, Seine, Alhausen, Ranton, Pendrick, Aust, Roncevaux - run by the Hanseatic Council, based in the city of Graustein. Starting as a trade union between the cities of Graustein, Fairview and Alhausen, it later evolved into a military alliance and later on a full political union, effectively creating the only known real nation larger than a single city. Although Hansa's main concern is trade, it is the largest nation known in this part of Vespin, and by Vespin standards is the local superpower. Its resources has allowed the Hanseatic cities to gain access to larger amounts of Old tech than any other people, which in turn has allowed them to field the most well-trained and well-equipped military force around, not to mention also the largest due to their large population. Despite this, Hansa has never openly sought conflict, and has maintained neutrality and open trade with most other cities, and sometimes even help other cities fight local bandit clans.


    Ripper clan (open)
    Type: Bandit clan
    Area: Red Rock Flats
    Leader: Name unknown; goes under the alias "Khan"
    Approximate population: 300
    Dominant languages: English
    General information: The Rippers are the only bandit clan in this part of the Red Rock flats, and the only clan that is a constant threat towards Makin and its outposts and caravans. Their own numbers well enough make up for the lack of additional clans, though. Having set up their main base inside the wreck of the cruiser USS San Francisco, the Rippers are currently deemed impossible to get rid of, as they are too numerous and well defended for even Hansa to clear out without enormous casualties. Rippers are easily recognized by their blood red vehicles as well as their tendency to wear home-made armour and weapons made from scrap metal found aboard the San Francisco.



    Character Sheets
    Main Characters
    Danil Junke (played by Andalais) (open)
    Name: Danil Junke
    Gender: Male
    Age: 19
    Ethnicity: Caucasian
    Appearance: At 180cm in height and of the average thin body built, Danil doesn't really stand out from other people his age. He has dirt-blonde hair, dark green eyes, a slightly gaunt face and not much facial hair to speak of. Like everyone else of his social class, he gets enough food to stay healthy, but not enough to build any real body fat, and so he is quite thin. He most often wears a white t-shirt covered by a thin khaki jacket which can be sealed by the wrists by the pull of a string. On his legs he wears a pair of loose-sitting, light green pants held up by a dark brown belt with an old iron buckle. On his feet he wears a pair of light brown shoes. Around his neck he always has a pair of dark goggles as well as a light blue shemagh which he wears as a scarf, and which he uses together with the goggles to protect against the sand whenever he happens to get caught in one of the sandstorms that often sweep into the city.
    Personality: Danil can be described as your typical restless teenage rebel. Where others are frightened by the stories of what exists outside the walls of the city, Danil is excited, and incredibly frustrated that he is not allowed to go out into that vast world of action and adventure that he has heard so much about. He is hot-tempered, impatient and cocky, but kind at heart and only wishes the best for the people he cares about. He is not interested in the riches of the Bunker for personal gain, but rather to make life better for himself and his family, and maybe even for all of Makin. Getting rid of that mayor would be one thing he'd like to do, definitely.
    History: Danil grew up in a common lower middle class home in Makin. His father works in the docks, where he takes care of the trades cargo coming in from other cities and from the Rangers, while his mother stays home and takes care of him and his siblings. Danil went to the local school like all the kids did, and got a decent education, at least for Vespin. He will have to work at the docks with his father if he can't find any other work soon, but he always dreams of becoming a Ranger, an adventurer. A hero. He has dreamt of finding the legendary Bunker, but he would be thrilled just to get to go outside the city walls, and he would be overjoyed to get to see one of the wrecked battleships he had heard so much about, even if it was just the lonely Warsaw wreck a few kilometres from Makin.

    Name: Bongani Abrim

    Gender: Male

    Personality: When first encounter with him, he seems like a very strict and serious person, this kind whom you don't want to fight with but when times goes on you'll find out he's a rather nice, calm guy whom just seems to be misunderstood. He can joke but that's very rare, only sometimes to take up the mood a bit. Other then that he's a serious person whom is just wanting to get his goal done.

    History: When he was younger he wanted to be just like his brother whom was a ranger, his brother was like a father to him as well as an older brother but when he died (or so people said) out in the land of sand he almost wanted to take revange at the Rangers, but when he got older he got to know more about them, what they really did and he understood better. His father encourage him while his mother told him not to but he've made his mind clear. He will take his older brother's place and make things happen that he couldn't do.

    Clothes:
    He prefers lax soft pants and a big T-shirt when he is at home and in general loose clothes when just strolling about. However when out in the wild. He puts on a set of rough boots and set of multi-purpose pants. Completed by a trenchcoat that is surprisingly airy and comfortable in the desert heat. Helped by the tight t-shirt he keeps under that. He brings with him two protections along side the hood sewn into his coat. A pair of protection googles that look slimed and a rebreather mask the last one in dire need of some maintenence.

    Personality: A bit a of a dreamy nature about him. He is a tinkerer at heart. And for his looks a surprisingly smart kid. He doesn't mind jokes about most things and likes to have a good time foremost. However once assigned a task he sticks to it to the end. The more he gets to learn the more interested and serious he will be about it to. Often a bit distant almost in his work as he gets into it.

  3. Oh dear, it seems I accidentally created two of these threads. Would an administrator be so kind as to remove the surplus thread?

    Thank you kindly.

  5. Since we're not sure what to do with these two yet, I'll just put them under side characters for now, okidoke?
     
  6. Okay! That's good enough for me. Shall I do another character just in case though?
     
  7. It sure wouldn't hurt.
     
  8. Bloo.jpg
    Name: Bloo Regard
    Gender: Female
    Age: 18
    Ethnicity: Hungarian/ Caucasian
    Attire: Due to Bloo being the same height as her brother, which is around 5'8, she is able to wear his clothes. Mostly being old button up shirts that are baggy on her. Yet she keeps a tank top underneath so that when she is out of the sun's harsh gaze, she can cool off easier. Her light brown cargo pants allow her to place many of the interesting things she finds in the many pockets. The brown combat boots that her great grandfather had gave to her for her birthday have been more than well cared for. They are her most prized possessions. A constant item on her is her brown cloak and teal tinted goggles.
    Personality: This girl is not one to piss off. Even from her days as a child, she was known for getting into fights with anyone who deemed that messing with her friends and family was worth their shins. When someone does not piss her off, she is relatively pleasant. Curious as a cat, but pleasant. Everything piques her interest. If it comes from beyond the walls, she is doubly interested. So much so that she gets in trouble. Despite how trouble seems to follow this klutzy girl, she is always wearing a large grin.
    History: Bloo's father was a struggling merchant within the walls. Yet, he always made the effort to do small things to brighten his two kids day. He came home with a smile despite how a client yelled at him. He was also the one who encouraged her to become a Ranger. In exchange, she had to get good grades, and when she finally reached her goal. Bloo would come home. No matter what. With that promise in mind, she had the convict to make the first part come true with ease. It also helped that she was very talented in the way of knowledge. Just like her grandfather was.​
     
  9. Welcome to the game, Angel. I'm glad to have you an Bloo here . 3.
     
  10. It's a pleasure to be here. :3
     
  11. [​IMG]
    Name: Naromi (nay-row-mee) Zair
    Gender: Female
    Age: 19
    Ethnicity: Hispanic
    Appearance:
    Clothing
    She wears a white tank under a light blue long sleeved shirt. She also carries a layered and hooded jacket in her bag. Their is a veil attached to the hood of the jacket, so she can protect her face. Her pants are light brown and baggy at the thigh area as to have proper air circulation but skinny at the bottom to prevent sand/insects/snakes from crawling in. Her boots are light brown as well and the laces are secured with strips of cloth as to prevent anything from crawling inside. Often times she wears gloves when dealing with rough terrain and prickly plants. She carries a several blankets in her bag so as not to succumb to the desert cold at night.

    Personality: Quiet and a bit gruff with a side of sarcastic. Naromi is all work no play. She wants to get to the top and live a good life. When she was younger she was a happy kid who was always either laughing or causing mischief with her friends. That all changed when her parents died and left her eldest brother in charge of her and her sister.

    History: When her parents died, Naromi's brother was left in charge of her and their younger sister. It's safe to say that he didn't do a good job. He didn't like them going out and basically kept them on house arrest until, their younger sister got fed up and ran away. After that he got even more anal about safety and tried to come down hard on Naromi. By that time Naromi was no longer the happy child that she used to be. The kid who was willing to follow her brother around and always do what he said. So she too, ran away and never returned to her old home. She looked everywhere for her sister but never found her and eventually gave up.

  12. Hello, Princess, welcome to the game. Before I add in your sheet, though, there is thing I'd like to say, and that is you will have to find other clothes for her. I'm sorry, but not only do they look fancy and expensive enough to be grossly out of place, but they are also thick, black, and have lots of places where sand can get stuck. In short, they are horrible desert garments. That red jacket on the top picture is not an option, either, as it also is far too hot. Sorry, but you'll have to find something else.
     
  13. @Andalais

    Okay and the picture at the top is just a face claim. ^^ The clothes weren't considered at all.
     
  14. Also the cloth are thick and black because deserts tend to get extremely cold at night. But I'll change it. ^^

    Edit: Plus she could just take the jacket and hood off when she got hot?
     
  15. Okay fixed it. ^^
     
  16. A fair point, though black doesn't help against cold, it just makes it worse in the sun.

    Speaking of which, I had actually completely forgotten about nighttime in deserts. Ah well, good thing I was reminded of it so early on ^^
     
  17. Added in your sheet, Princess. Welcome aboard.​
     
  18. By the way, Nathchi, have you made another character yet, or do you want to use Rick and Rei after all?
     
  19. Yaaay *Salutes* Thank you capn! (crunch)
