Okay this is something that has bugged me for a while now, and it's not getting better. It dawned on me when the person playing Grimlock said "Grimlock couldn't lose to Sunstreaker, pffffft!" And then I started thinking "Why not?" In the original universe I would be compelled to listen to you. In the comics, the cartoon, yeah he wouldn't lose. But in this universe? Why is that such a certainty?

In this universe how do we know he would win out right without a challenge? I started to read character profiles more closely and I realized that we're just rebooting the old RPG. New RPG, same characters. Nothing was changing. The Universe has somehow rebooted and everyone is... some how, going to turn out the exact same even with new origins? None of the characters who were on the edge of their allegiances were swayed to switch sides, they still fell in line with their original character type. Personalities are the same, jobs are the same.

Why did we start the game over if we're just going to do everything the same?

Now, that is out there I am giving people a chance to change things up with me, even just slightly! I have made a decision and it is thus: Sunstreaker and Sideswipe are not going to Earth. Not at the beginning, possibly not ever. They're not staying on Cybertron, and may never get to go home.

They're going to a different planet that was important in Transformers lore and they're going to meet aliens who become important in Transformers lore. I don't wanna go alone. As much fun as I could have with just Sunstreaker and Sideswipe, I don't want to be alone. I want people to come with me.

My idea is this. Sunstreaker is going to not want to fight in a war. He's too rich and too pretty to put himself on the line. He is going to hi-jack one of the shuttles or offer out his own personal shuttle to ferry people off of Cybertron and he isn't going to take it to the rest of the Autobots. He's going to take it to the next best place for someone like him. A place he can keep making money and keep fighting in gladiatorial fights, which is what he enjoys. He's going to do so with no care about what others want and he's going to strand them all on the planet of the technologically advanced, corrupt business oriented planet of the Quintessons, Quintessa.

Quintessa will be an economic hub of the galaxy, with the Quintessons' financial reach going over many sectors. More than just Quintessons will inhabit Quintessa, people, creatures and sentient robots of all types will be there. I'll be doing a more thorough back story for the Quintessons, but for now I want to see if there is any interest in starting to really change things up and coming with me.

So, join me won't you! Lets start doing things different and new asap!

That's not a bad idea. None of my characters are likely to follow Sunny, though...

Though I never said that Grimlock can't be beaten by Sunstreaker, only that I'd prefer for it not to happen so early in the game.

I ask again. Who wants to come to play in Quintesson space?!

If the Junkions can interact I'm all in.

It's possible Topspin could be sent as part of a small military force or something along those lines into Quint space, if any other Autobots want to go along, or I could grab another character and send him there. Either way, I'm up for sending someone that way :)

I'd like to send someone, but I can't decide who. Smokescreen or Red Alert probably.

Warpath might go, I think. Depending on whether there is incentive.

Incentive? What? Do you want a ****ing cookie?

If cookies are handed out, then I'll go. But only if there's cookies. :glance:

Do Quintessons and other assorted organics count to our eight-character tally?

They'll be there. They'll be in the Quintesson backstory when posted.


Edit- Which means you should probably take that profile down.

For two reasons. One, you don't even know what the Junkions are and two, Junkions for the most part don't even exist yet.

We are months away from even introducing them for a full time run.

I have a ton of time to write and re-write everything before I have to put it in stone.
