View Full Version : [New RPG] character claims


Warcry

I promised one, didn't I? :)

Here are the rules we agreed on:

New players can start out with a maximum of two characters. We'll recommend that they pick one Autobot and one Decepticon, but if they have a very good idea and need two 'Bots or two 'Cons to make it work we'll look at waiving this.
Once a player has a handle on the game, they'll be able to claim up to six characters. Current/returning players would start out here.
Veteran players who have participated in the game for at least a year uninterrupted can have eight characters.
In addition you may claim up to two human characters.
NPCs are restricted to staff and can only be used temporarily when the plot requires it.
No more than two fanmades per player.
No more than two post-G2 characters per player.
Staff can veto fanmade and post-G2 characters if they don't fit.
Staff are subject to the same character rules as everyone else.

If you're claiming a fanmade or non-G1/G2 character, please indicate where they're from.

Nope. If you only want to play one character that's perfectly OK.

Well, in that case I'm just gonna grab Sparkstalker for now since no one appears to have taken him yet. (Unless, of course, the search feature lies.....)

Sasquatch
2012-03-14, 04:45 PM
Alright I'm dropping Razorclaw and picking up Lockdown. If one of the decepticon higher ups could perhaps post a bounty for me, I'd appreciate it.

EDIT: would it be possible to pick up another con instead of a bot. If so maybe I could play the Botcon version of Overlord?

Sasquatch
2012-04-04, 03:43 AM
dropping Lockdown for Dai Atlas maybe, if no one has yet claimed him. Someone posted something about him in a previous thread not sure if he's up for grabs or not.

TLB80
2012-04-07, 02:20 PM
Well, since I now understand the game and Springer85 has a mission, I'm gonna use up my empty Autobot slot and pick up Electro.

Dinobot#1

Ok I'll take lockdown if nolonger clamed

Shine
2012-04-12, 01:04 PM
If it's cool with everyone, I'd like to play Dead End and Wildrider again.

The last time I knew, those two were at the Governor's Palace. No one minds if they pester the crap out of start interacting with whoever might be present at the palace?

TLB80
2012-04-25, 02:27 PM
Just a question, would I be allowed to claim more characters? Because I have an idea.....

If the answer is yes, I'll take Flamefeather. If the answer is no, you may all forget I ever said anything.

TLB80
2012-05-19, 11:49 AM

I'm not sure I'd say that opskids is really playing anyone right now in the new RPG, honestly. With Squawktalk in particular, I don't think he's posted in months.

At the very least, Sasquatch should feel free to send a PM and see if he's still planning on using the guy.

Ulcrain claimed him and played him for a bit. I think he's already a Decepticon and got involved in the Altihex raid alongside Thrust?

After lots of thought, and a failed attempt to post, I'm dropping Roadbuster and picking up Windcharger.

Windcharger EEEEEEEE!

We all love Windcharger!

I figure I can do what I wanted to do with that character easier with somebody I've never run before. And I love his alt mode.

I'm dropping my temporary NPC Ratchet (who had been silent for a couple of months anyway), so please don't interact with him anymore.

Sasquatch
2012-09-07, 03:32 AM
Would I be able to pick up more characters? I'd like to pick up Snaptrap, Overbite, and Seawing. If not just ignore me :p

Springer85
2012-09-26, 04:09 PM
The more the merrier lol

To increase the Decepticon ranks even more, I'm dropping First Aid (who has served his purpose) and I'm picking up Triggerhappy :D

You're welcome to him, but Unicron was killed billions of years ago in our storyline and that might have an impact on what you're planning to do with the guy.

Swapping Triggerhappy for First Aid for a bit. Need him to repair the damaged Autobots! :)

Warcry
2013-05-15, 04:43 AM
Perfect timing in my books, because I'm dropping his buddy Black Shadow now that his little character arc is complete. In his place I'll be picking up Starscream, because we can't tell a story in this era and not have Starscream running around.

I'll also be using Shockwave for a couple posts as an NPC to help establish Starscream's backstory.

Lady Quickswitch
2013-05-17, 01:15 AM
After giving it some thought I'm dropping Cutthroat, and Sky Lynx is in good hands with Blackjack.

Springer85
2013-05-17, 01:36 AM
I don't think Sky Lynx is being played by Blackjack, is he? He should be free :)

Lady Quickswitch
2013-05-17, 01:43 AM
Blackjack was temping him for me awhile ago. It was a good fit. :) If Blackjack doesn't want him I'll take him back on a temporary basis. Would that be okay with you guys?

Springer85

Warcry

Smokescreen's basically disappeared from the plot and I've got no idea what to do with him in the future, so I'm dropping him in favour of Ramjet.

Aero Blade
2013-07-11, 03:11 AM
Bah, I still had unfinished business with him with Raiku. Any chance of npcing him later when an opportunity presents itself?

Warcry
2013-07-11, 04:31 AM
It's possible, but since he's in deep space aboard Omega Supreme and all the characters who were supposed to interact with him have disappeared, he won't be back any time soon.

Aero Blade
2013-07-11, 04:35 AM
well with the way things were going, it seemed like they weren't going to get a meeting again until the planet evac. By then I figured everyone would be starting to consolidate together and there was better chances of them running into each other.

You're welcome to join the battle though it might get a bit crowded, but I guess we can solve that problem with some random Vehicons. ;)

By the way, in your post you can't write that you're crashing into to Tarantulas. You can only intend to crash into him, because it's up to the player that controls the character to allow you to crash into him. In other words, you need to give the player you're engaging some wiggle room. :)

Oh, and welcome to the nuthouse :p

If there's also something specific you ever want to accomplish requiring someone else's character, you can always PM them ahead of time and work out the details prior to a post. So long as you have their permission first, you're good to go, but drop and OOC: in it so we're aware of it and don't natter at you ;)

Gosh, I feel like a fool now for racing in making things a little difficult. My impatience got the better of me there, and I'm sorry.

Next time, I will (repeat after me: I will, I will, I will) PM someone to save myself another rather gawky moment.

I'm unaware of the status of the Autobot pretenders as I am unaware if they possess the tech. Skyjack should be fine though

correct, the Autobots have yet to encounter humans (it is immanent) but as such pretenders can't be used quite yet. This however shouldn't prevent you from using him, as certainly you could get the character introduced in their pre-pretender status, and they later become such as part of the developing plot.

yup, that makes it official. Just recommend checking out the last few posts before you pop in, get a good idea how you want to intro. Generally speaking, the Autobots are all evacing at the remains of the war academy's med center, and the cons are onboard their ships.
