The Last Battle of the 26th Division (OOC)

Postby Suraru » Thu Nov 07, 2013 7:14 am

"Harlan stood up. His painfully bruised legs shook under what was left of his weight. He took one step forward, and then another. The moans of the nearby titans, and screams of remainder of his team gave him strength to keep walking. He almost stumbles on a limb resting on the ground, but he keeps moving. With his remaining arm, he grabs a blade off the ground. It's not dull, but it won't kill a titan, neither will it's user in this state. However, his goal isn't the kill the titan gnawing on his screaming comrade's legs. No, his final act will be that of mercy. The final titan sitting down stares at him, but keeps suckling on it's juicy, thrashing snack. Harlan is close enough now. He raises his blade, and lets it fall truthfully..."


As you may of guessed, this is an AoT/SnK roleplay. This story takes place during the futile campaign to retake wall Maria. It's been about a year after the fall of Shiganshina, and the government has just been recently expending soldiers to reduce the population. You all will start out as trainees, and I will loosely follow the manga's style of storytelling. That means the occasional flashbacks to skip some of the boring training parts to revisit them later, and build character that will be used almost immediately afterwards. The important stuff will have to be taken care of first, so you will all start off as trainees, but the entire trainee arc won't be complete till later on in the story.

For the plot I have about five arcs planed. First comes the trainee arc, which will be broken up and spread throughout the 2nd arc, which is the first battle arc, and the 3rd arc, which is the advanced training arc. After those two are done, and the RP is still going, the 4th arc will be the longest, the strategy game arc. Finally, the finale arc will be the most badass, and will be kept hidden until the end.



Rules
These are subject to change at the moment, but what I have so far are;
No extreme sexual themes, and keep extreme violence/gore to a minimum - AoT is a very graphic story, thus you are allowed to be graphic. If you're too graphic, please stick it in a spoiler box and summarize the important things (that wont make people sick) outside of it.

No Godmodding - Half the fun is failing, and a good story includes failure and imperfection. Make your character, give him or her tons of flaws, and abide by them. You don't see Armin beating up Reiner, and you don't see Connie outwitting Levi. Imperfection is what makes your characters human, keep that in mind when roleplaying, and creating a character.

No Metagaming - Metagaming is when the character knows or does something he/she shouldn't know/be able to. For example, if someone is sneaking up on you, your character doesn't know this unless the sneaker makes a mistake and you catch it. Just because the player knows information, doesn't mean the character does. Just because you can figure out something, doesn't mean your character can.

No Powerplaying - Don't control other people. This should go without saying, but it happens sometimes. If you punch someone, don't write for them that they got knocked down or if they blocked it or not. There are some exceptions, but for the most part, doing an IM roleplay is advised when you have to interact in real time with other characters. It turns 50 one liners into a single post.

No One liners - or two liners. Basically, try to keep your post at least 3 lines long. Everyone's resolution is different, but try to post longer posts. Short quick posts are total BS, lazy, and make it difficult to progress. If you're at a stalemate and can't do much, post what your character is thinking, post what (s)he is planning to do, post contingencies in case they fail to do their initial action. There should be few reasons you can't produce at least 3 lines a post.

Build/Stay In Character - Your characters need to build character. That means they need to work on making their weaknesses better, or dealing with their own personal demons, but they also need to stay in character while doing this. It should take them at least three arcs to fix something wrong with them, assuming they survive. Keep this in mind when you make your character, and make sure your character stays true.

Good Grammar/Spelling - Good god, I can understand if English isn't your first language, but please, for the love of god, grammar check your shit before you post it. A massive thing in RPs is communication and understanding what has happened. If people can't understand what you wrote, it'll bring the RP to a standstill as we all sit back and wonder what "so her drive the into pot" means.



Application
Name: (please try to match your nationality)
Age: (10 minimum)
Appearance: (include nationality, something that stands out/makes you recognizable, and general looks. Pictures can be accepted (just throw it in a spoiler), text is preferred.)
Strengths: (Remember what I said about godmodding. Try to keep this section small, but you should have at least something that makes you better than bait)
Weaknesses: (The more the merrier, but keep it reasonable. If you're not to smart, no need to add how you can't do puzzles (because they both fall under intelligence), just remember to abide by these when you roleplay. If you say you aren't that good at spacial perception, don't do any badass 3DMG tricks).
Other: (Personality, history, back story, motives, anything you feel should be added. You can also leave this part blank, but it's not recommended)

@Blackhunter: Please try to keep it SnK lore friendly. I'll allow some creative differences, but no "powers" or anything like that. So the ability to TP is a no no. The name is fine, I assume you're of the rare asian background?

@MP: I prefer original characters (due to the timeline difference anyways), but if you really want to be Erwin (or Annie), I'm fine with breaking canon, as long as you can compnsate with a reasonable bckstory, like Annie joining the military before the attack on Maria.

@Everyone, by the way, I forgot to add to the fact that you'll all be joining the military before the first attack on wall Maria. That way you can graduate in time for the attempted retaking of wall Maria. Aka a suicide mission.
Do I even English sometimes?

Yay, my first text-based rpg!
I'm really new to this, so I might screw up a lot when it comes to the silent rules of text based rpg's.
Not sure whether I should stick with my nationality. For now I guess I won't.

Name: Piotr Schmidt
Age: 14
Appearance: 162cm, 56kg, Brown hair, Hazel eyes, White complexion
Strengths: Good reflexes, Above-average intuition.
Weaknesses: Friendly but has poor communication skills, Physically weak, Weak-willed,
Other: Third child, with two older brothers. His father operated as the local blacksmith in one of the small towns dotting the vast landscape inside Wall Maria.

Piotr preferred to confine himself inside the house, always ready to listen to his mother's many tales on their ancestor's way of life before the invasion of the titans. While his two older brothers frequently helped their father's business and visited the town bars to flirt with the barmaids whenever time was free, Piotr never found much incentive to neither engage himself in the craft nor socialize. His relationship with Huss Veiner was his only friendship that lasted more than a year, due mostly to the fact that their families sustained constant contact with each other.

His reluctance to help with the family trade made him the least favorite son in the eyes of his father, and as a result, was the one to be sent to the training corps to "become a man and protect mankind." While Piotr knew that in reality he was sent away to reduce the number of mouths his father had to feed, the fact did not bother him too much. The only thing he regretted was that he would not meet his mother for the next few years.

Personality: Has no problem warming up to people and understanding what others are talking about, yet has a problem communicating his thoughts to others, leading to misunderstandings, miscommunications, etc. Doesn't have a strong sense of purpose, and as such follows orders or requests to the word as long as they stay in the boundary of (his) common sense. Often times in a troubling situation he manages to see what the problem is, although many times he comes up with the wrong solutions and ends up doing nothing/worsening the problem.

(tl;dr, your average teenager, sort of)
How long is a single arc going to be?
And are there limits on how many posts we have to make, or can make (minimum posts, maximum posts)?

EDIT: Added some details

The length of the arcs will depend on the player's post style. There is no minimum or maximum for number of posts, only content. If you're not posting after a few days, and holding up the rest of the RP, I'll temporary remove your character from the situation, just to get things going. For the most part, oeople can post at their own rates, I'll group the more active ones together, and make sure there is a steady flow to get arcs finished as soon as possible.

Ah, Alright! :D

Also, how does combat work?
No powerplaying and metagaming, yeah, but is there some kind of a rule to deciding who wins?
And how about aspects outside the control of the character? (e.g. physics, interactions with random objects)

Sorry, never played text-based rpgs. :P

Omgsomanyquestions

I guess you could write it in as Accuracy? (which could also mean that you're good at shooting 3dmg hooks)
