OOC System Bugs

    SsnakeeTheDragon Brain of Cthulhu

    Hello! Welcome to the System Bugs roleplay OOC. I have never hosted one before, so thought I'd give it a shot.

    IC - System Bugs

    A few groundrules.
    1. Democracy; events are not held like that of a dictatorship. Everyone has a say, and can present their side of the argument on why/why not an event/other thing should occur.
    HOWEVER, and I know this will annoy people, so sorry, I do have say over all, and I don't plan on abusing this power. I will only overrule decisions if I think they are completely outrageous.

    2. Fairness; unless you want to intentionally create a weak character, all characters are equal in their respective ways. This means a big no-no to basically deities being allowed to ruin the roleplay.

    3. No ridiculousness; sure, you can have a laugh, but nothing that may hurt the roleplay, or anything that is completely uncalled for. If there really must be something like this, rule one is in effect.

    4. Common sense; yes, pretty obvious, but just a tiny few people do not possess this skill... So others, make sure to call out this behaviour so they realise in future.

    Hey you! Are you interested in helping out making an extended and helpful wiki for this roleplay?
    Here is the link!
    Terraria Forums Roleplay : System Bugs Wiki

    Now, onto the story!

    Welcome to the new world; a world of surveillance, and one of distrust. The governments are now one massive superpower ruling the population. You are apart of a resistance; fighting for freedom. Be careful though, as they have many ways to track you down.
    Before this tragedy occured, aliens have made contact with humanity, and fearing and distrust created movements that ultimately lead to a supergovernment, hellbent on destruction of all aliens and their allies, and anyone who dares to oppose them. (YES! THIS ROLEPLAY HAS A CONCLUSION!)

    Anyway, we plan to overthrow them (obviously).

    Now, character template:
    Nickname: (N/A if none)
    Species: (default human)
    Weaknesses: (Yes, you do have to. Check rules)
    Traits: (N/A if none)
    Tendencies: (N/A if none)
    More can be explained along the way.

    Meanings of Symbols
    Brackets show posts that are related to the current situation, but not in character; narrator conversation, if you will.
    (Are the dolphins sentient or not?)

    Double brackets do not relate to the current situation, and should be in OOC, but for one reason or another, isn't.
    ((On page 3, were there pickles?))

    Quotation marks show the speech of a character.
    "What is your favourite type of cookie?"

    Pairs of backquotes are thoughts. They are not said aloud.
    `Man, I need some sleep.`
    Curly brackets are for dumb comments and jokes.
    {It happened because life.}

    Double arrows show radio communication.
    <<Sector 7, no sign of them yet, over.>>

    A healthbar should meet some basic requirements. 1, consistancy. 2, readability. 3, contains a text based counter.

    SsnakeeTheDragon Brain of Cthulhu

    Name: SsnakeeTheDragon
    Nickname: Ssnakee
    Species: Draco Serpans
    Gender: Male

    Ssnakee is calm, somewhat suspicious of others, and rational, however his personality can change rapidly when provoked.

    His species sucked at governing. Humans are worse.

    Technology, science, reason, lethal bite.

    Limbless, weak.

    Fast learner, has big interest in learning new information.
    Logical, makes decisions always on probability and reason.

    Thanks for the tip!
  5. Animus Viral

    Animus Viral Retinazer

    Name: Cabot C.
    Species: Human
    Gender: Male
    Lives in the now, usually living for the rushes of combat. Other than that, has no hope for anything else much. This is derived from his youth being unable to get a job other than being in the army, so he sees himself as almost useless. So, he no longer thinks of social interaction, other than with those who he has fought along side.

    Nihilism. He doesn't believe that there is a purpose of life, so he believes living for himself is the best way to live.

    Strengths: Hellfire Power Armor operator along with a very devastating Plasma Rifle, Gatling Laser known as Aeternus, and a Sonic Emitter that just make robots resonate with sound then implode from the resonance. Skilled with these weapons and knows how to properly maintain them.

    Weaknesses: Human. (Can be shot and killed, limited by what all humans have.)
    Power Source and Ammo - Needs power and ammo to keep using their weapons

    Wild Wasteland Trait. (Yes. This is a trait.)
    And of course: Bloody Mess (trait)

    Battle Theme:

    To what extent is trait number 1 applied?
  7. Animus Viral

    Animus Viral Retinazer

    "It adds (and in some cases changes) random encounters and locations with humor."
    "Events that are modified/triggered by Wild Wasteland are indicated by an "alien-esque" tune of the rattling of maracas and hum of a theremin and an on-screen message displaying "..." with an image of the Vault Boy with spirals for eyes, identical to the Wild Wasteland image."
  8. SsnakeeTheDragon

    SsnakeeTheDragon Brain of Cthulhu

    So only by random chance by every encounter. Okay, let's choose a fair 1 in chance.
  9. Animus Viral

    Well I'd say 10 as chance.
  10. SsnakeeTheDragon

    SsnakeeTheDragon Brain of Cthulhu

    Given the significance, perhaps we could make that 1/15?

    Otherwise, character approved.
  11. Animus Viral

    Animus Viral Retinazer

    Ok then. So, let's see how long this will take until the IC appears.
  12. SsnakeeTheDragon

    SsnakeeTheDragon Brain of Cthulhu

    Progress will probably pick up I hope when more people are online
  13. SsnakeeTheDragon

    SsnakeeTheDragon Brain of Cthulhu

    I think I'll just start it now. People can join over time so as to not overload it.
  14. Defure

    Defure Golem

    Well, it's not likely that the IC will receive much activity yet. Also, I'm thinking of joining, but not right now at 23:55.
  15. SsnakeeTheDragon

    SsnakeeTheDragon Brain of Cthulhu

    Thanks so much for the tips! It is really appreciated. It would be really cool if you joined. Perhaps see you tomorrow at a better time.
  16. Defure

    Defure Golem

    I have two characters I'm considering for this, not sure which to use.
  17. SsnakeeTheDragon

    SsnakeeTheDragon Brain of Cthulhu

    Take your time, and you could even use both, if you cannot decide.
  18. Defure

    Defure Golem

    And then there's characters I should use more.
  19. SsnakeeTheDragon

    SsnakeeTheDragon Brain of Cthulhu

    It's all up to you. Take as long as you need.
  20. SsnakeeTheDragon

    SsnakeeTheDragon Brain of Cthulhu

    Have you had time to further think about it?
    I am sorry if you feel I am rushing you.
