X-Men: E341 OOC - STILL Accepting!

Postby Hana » Sat Apr 06, 2013 1:29 pm

X-Men: Earth 341

Not to step on Imenak's toes, but we all love X-men. We all love academy-style games. We need another X-Men academy-style game.

This one will be based in another alternate universe, at the Jean Grey Institute for Higher Learning. Characters should be high-school to college aged and newly-discovered mutants. There will be action, but it'll be less about action and more about interaction and character development.

I don't think I need a creative writing blurb to pique anyone's interest with this one, and I don't think we need to be super-complicated with creation and whatnot like I usually am. This one should be more low-key and fluid of a game, so as not to be stressful to anybody.


Character Sheet:

POST THIS PART IN THE OOC -
Code: Select all
[b]Name:[/b]
[b]Desired Codename:[/b] (you can leave this blank if you want)
[b]Age:[/b] (Let's try to keep it between 16 and 22-ish? Discuss with me if you want outside that range.)

[b]Physical Description:[/b] (Physical Description. Be thorough enough that others can envision your character. Pictures are okay, but must be accompanied by words, please)

[b]Personality:[/b] (Give me an idea of who they are. What they like. How they react to things. What they hate. What sets them off.)



PM THIS PART TO ME -
Code: Select all
[b]Mutant Power:[/b] (Pretty self-explanatory, I think. Make it cool. I'm open to negotiate for things.)

[b]Special Plot Hooks:[/b] (Any special things I can use to make the game more interesting using your character. Ideas for furthering their character development based on your initial plan for them. Do you want to be a Summers child from another dimension? Let me know! Awesome ideas are awesome. Gimme awesome stuff to work with.)




ADDENDUM
Hana wrote:Oh, yeah. I forgot to say this. If anyone wants to play one of the teenaged mutants from the comics (Hellion, Pixie, DJ, Icarus, Wind Dancer, etc) feel free.

If you want to play someone 'adult-aged' canon, but want to regress them (Gambit, Beast, Jubilee, etc) PM me first and we'll see if we can hash it out for this universe. The only ones I'll definitely veto on that angle are Scott, Emma, Xavier, Jean Grey, Logan, and Eric...Pretty much. There may be a few others that -have- to be adults that I'm not immediately thinking of, but not everyone by far is locked into it.


BIG RULE 1: Godmoding gets 1 warning, then you get kicked from the game.
BIG RULE 2: Arguing incessantly with the GM will get you kicked from the game.

Name: Cassandra Delacruz
Desired Codename: Midas
Age: 16

Physical Description: A fiendish array of diabolic deviations expose heavy mutation within this short, slender female figure, twisting a visage of humanity into something altogether other worldly. A fragile frame is clad in bright red skin that seems to scale near the beginnings of her ankles and wrists, a shade of colour far too close to blood for comfort and a fitting coupling to the slightly curved demonic-looking horns protruding several inches long from her forehead. A swathe of messy, shoulder-length, curly black hair parts about a pair of pointed ears, that when viewed with her sharp facial features gives her an almost sylvan appearance. Her eyes lack pupils and gleam a malevolent luminescent yellow beneath spiny-ridged brows that make her look perpetually cross. Her figure is thin and slightly smaller than would be expected from her age, with a relatively flat chest and narrow hips, though the exceptionally long, spade-tipped tail flowing out the base of her spine seems to make her appear far larger than she actually is.

Her usual accessories are a series of slender golden rings pierced through her long ears, a stud upon her belly-button and a set of specialised heavy leather gloves baring a government seal. A set of sharp fangs give her speech a slight slur, though her voice carries a clear Latin-American accent.

She has been fitted with an appearance changing device that she wears about her wrist. While keeping the shape of her face the same, it conceals her true skin colour with a light caucasian and paints her eyes with irises and pupils. Now lacking the spined ridges above her eyebrows, the dagger-like horns upon her forehead her tail, Cassandra would appear as a normal girl of her age, albeit smaller. In this 'transformed state' she possesses a surprising beauty that merely serves to illustrate the cruelty of some mutations.

Personality: She possesses a manner that suggests she was forced to grow up far too quickly, acting with maturity without much experience of adulthood. This can lead to her appearing petulant to her elders and aloof to her peers. Though certainly not a loner or anti-social, she shows a dislike of group activities and believes she can perform her assignments best without outside interference by her peers. Paradoxically she becomes easily attached to any elders who show kindness towards her, even going so far as to pretend to be less intelligent than she actually is for further attention. She is an academic student, avoiding sports where she can.

She chooses flight over fight and will flee from any avoidable conflict. Those she cannot avoid she will still prefer to retreat and try to think of an escape rather than a victory. She hates loud voices and being ignored and adores attention. She has an obsession with fruit and rarely eats anything else.

In short she could be described as a skittish, attention-seeking, world-wary teenager.

So, uh, if this is the Jean Grey Institute, does that mean this is supposed to be going down after the whole World Civil War Phoenix stuff? Or is this another unrelated Jean Grey Institute?

Yep. Just...basic normal stuff, without any of the world-wrecking crap like House of M. We're going to start fairly clean-slate-ish with some comic history to fall back on. If anyone want anything super-different, I am up for negotiations, though. ^_^

Name: Kal Elton
Desired Codename: Solaris
Age: 16

Physical Description: Kal’s a pretty beefy guy. He’s 6’1” and doesn’t seem to have stopped growing, teetering awkwardly over most of his classmates. A lifetime punctuated with frequent bouts of physical labour has filled him out well, broadening his shoulders and detailing his musculature in the manner one would expect from constant lifting, towing, and ploughing. He doesn’t tan easily but has a healthy complexion. His palms are rough. He has a wide, strong jaw and a reassuring sort of face. His eyes are bright crimson, like the light at the edge of dawn, and glow softly (or brightly, in certain circumstances) in the dark. He has very slightly curly, dirty blonde hair that he parts to one side.

Personality: Kal’s father once told him that his name means ‘strong’ in Finnish, and he tries every day to make sure that he lives up to what the word implies. Raised on a farm in Kent, Kal is no stranger to hard work, and after a short while in his company you’d think he might have a mild phobia of complaining. He’s a bit of a dreamer and tends to drift off to elsewhere during strenuous activity (which has lead to many a silly accident), and despite his constant self-reminders to be dutiful to others, he feels a profound pull towards greater things – he often fantasizes about himself as a traveller or some other kind of Indiana Jones-ish figure. Kal is soft-spoken and tends not to object to anything if he doesn’t have to, though he often to feels silently frustrated when others don’t meet the high expectations he holds himself to. He believes that all people have the capability to be good.

Name: Jaime Stark
Desired Codename: Thermos
Age: 18

Physical Description: If someone were to tell you ‘picture a surfer dude’ the first thing that would pop up in your mind would resemble something like Jaime Stark. He has a very tan and lean body, stands at a respectable 5’11, and is all around someone that could possibly be on the front of a magazine somewhere. He has a very handsome and thin face, powerful green eyes, and dark eyebrows. His hair is long and black, normally being tied into a ponytail that reaches down to the middle of his back. Jaime’s usual clothing consists of nothing more than a plain red tank top with blue swimming trunks and open toed flip flops.

Personality: Jaime is a very bright and friendly person, he’s very good at giving value to others and has a nack for assuming leadership roles. He is the kind of person who is always looking forward, looking to challenge himself and those around him. An adventurous person with a boyish sense of humor, Jaime can find it hard sometimes to crack down and handle a situation in a serious way. Jaime loves to talk and does so very often with whoever piques his interest. There is a serious lack of fear and inhibition in Jaime Stark, sometimes this can result in putting himself in very troublesome or dangerous situations. He’s the kind of person who would rather reason with a person than just fight with them, he always tries to see both sides of an argument but will defend his opinion to the last breath if he still feels right.

Name:Edger Harrison.
Desired Codename:Hedge (you can leave this blank if you want)
Age: 18

Physical Description: Tall and stocky, 6 foot 2. Stands tall and straight-back, unlike some tall people who tend to stoop and loom. Typical build of someone who'd work on a farm all day. Vary dark green hair, dark to the point that it would take some convincing to realise it's actually dark green, more long than average, and messy, as if he's just gotten out of bed. Green eyes, the shade of which varies from light to dark with respect to day and night. Wears thin jumpers over plain t-shirts, thick trousers with, typically, worn and ragged ends at the legs. All his clothes are quite patchy too, his own patchwork visible as different fabrics have replaced the originl cloth over time. Typically his large hands are dirty with earth, ragged fingernails too, he's a nail-biter. Some dark fuzz is growing around his chin, from sideburn to sideburn. He's going to have an impressive beard some day. Slightly yellowed teeth with a gap where a far incisor got knocked out on his upper jaw. Slightly tanned skin and a stern, serious expression.

Personality: Slightly stoic. Doesn't have much truck with fancy wordplay, believing more in actions than promises. He doesn't make serious promises easily but stands by his word unless necessary. Is more of a worker than a player and holds himself responsible for any problems he sees. Tends to pick up stray bits of litter, or be the one doing the washing up, or help tidy up after class. He's okay at most of his studies, but that's only because he makes sure to put in the work outside of class to make up for a lack of learning ability. Has a live and let live attitude to a lot of people's personalities and opinions, only because he views a lot of hose kind of issues as "trivial", "that's your opinion" and "important to you, not me." Likes practicality and for things to work. If it's not broke, don't fix it. Has a soft spot for the great outdoors and nature. More of an animal-lover than people.

Name:Maxfield Hunter
Desired Codename: Drake
Age:18

Physical Description: Maxfield (you can call him Max)
is 6'1 with an average body physique. While not particularly toned, he is by no means flabby or out of shape. He is white, with a minor tan. He has short brown hair and hazel eyes. His clothing usually consists of some kind of t-shirt with a dragon design on it, and either jeans or shorts of some description. He is fairly attractive, but not drop dead gorgeous.

Personality: Maxfield is friendly, silly, sometimes childish, and loves to just have fun. He likes to interact with others and likes to be liked. He values and is loyal to his friends, and even gives his foes the benefit of the doubt. Overall, he is just a nice guy. However, he is prone to mood swings, usually in relation to his mutation. When angered or upset he can be vicious, rude, cynical, even violent, and reclusive. These cycles usually pass quickly and Max will return to his normal, bubbly self in no time. He does not normally take a leadership role, tending to follow orders with diligence. He was raised with foster parents and sent off to the Academy when his mutation was made known.

(Might add more to this if you deem it necessary to do so)

Oh, yeah. I forgot to say this. If anyone wants to play one of the teenaged mutants from the comics (Hellion, Pixie, DJ, Icarus, Wind Dancer, etc) feel free.

If you want to play someone 'adult-aged' canon, but want to regress them (Gambit, Beast, Jubilee, etc) PM me first and we'll see if we can hash it out for this universe. The only ones I'll definitely veto on that angle are Scott, Emma, Xavier, Jean Grey, Logan, and Eric...Pretty much. There may be a few others that -have- to be adults that I'm not immediately thinking of, but not everyone by far is locked into it.

Just a heads up...If you want something like, say, flight, I'm going to be asking all kinds of specific questions like
  • How fast?
  • Can your character carry any weight?
  • How fast can your character fly while carrying varying levels of weight?
  • What level of aerial agility do they have? (Do they make cumbersome wide turns, or can they do awesome tight loopdeloops and evasive maneuvers?)

This is going to be similar for any of those powers that have a bunch of limitation questions that usually come up in game.

Telepath? What's your range? Receptive only, or projective as well? Empathy attached, or only thoughts? Surface thoughts only? How easy is it to bypass normal mental shielding?

Magnetic control? Ferrous magnetic, or atomic magnetic? etc, etc, etc...

So far, people have been pretty cool about answering my follow-up questions, but these are the sorts of things that you'll want to keep in mind.

Maxfield is accepted.

The way this is going, I might have to girl-i-fy some canon boys. Can you imagine a Jillian Julia Keller? *snerk*

Edited, 'cause I like "Jules" as a nickname better than "Jill".

I could certainly imagine Julie Keller, considering that Hellion was a total bitch to begin with.

She'd probably be pretty hot, though. I'd give her    a hand   , if you know what I mean.

I think DJ'd be cute as a girl, too. I'd have to give her some dyed hair streaks.

Umbra as a girl? Wither? Spectre?

I suppose I could change up Icarus into a chick, too.

That's because you were precise enough in the levels of what your power does. *chuckles*

Don't worry about it. I've got plenty of NPCs. Canon girls, canon boys that can be turned into girls, and original mutants.

And who knows, some of the male PCs might hook up with other male PC's, too. I'm equal-opportunity like that.
