Wild West + Anything RP Sign-up/Ideas:

Prepare your poke balls.
It is here: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13168633450A17860100&page=1#1

Discussion here: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13168787150A87420100&page=1#1

We have started. Positions are still open. Post your profiles here and wait for my approval and instructions before you post.

Basically, anything is allowed. Do you want to be a cyborg? Go for it. Want to be an angel, demon, werewolf, vampire, alien, ninja, robot, zombie, ghost, spirit? Anything is OK as long as it's based in the Wild West.

Maybe I've watched too much Trigun or GUN×SWORD (The latter -is- my favourite Anime), but it seems we can have lots of freedom, and anyone can join. No prior knowledge needed, just a simple character plan and then off we go.

The planet is unnamed for now (You can discover it's name while playing), but the starter town is/was Little Frontier, a small paradise of criminals, cut off from most of the world. Everyone just wants to survive, and the criminals there are happy. However, the characters of this RP are not happy, and will do whatever it takes to escape, and accomplish their individual goals.

When you make your profile, instead of using the term magic (Which does not exist), instead give some other explanation or how they can they do what they can. If they can heal people, then it comes naturally and from within, not because they're using the magic in the air. If you want them to just be able to do magical stuff, then don't give an explanation but don't call it magic.

Profile to start off:
  • Name:
  • Age:
  • Gender:
  • Race:
  • Appearance:
  • Personality:
  • Nationality: (Optional, but helps)
  • Weapons/skills:
  • History: 3-4 lines should be good.
  • Miscellaneous: Whatever the hell you want to add.

The World is ruled by a Government, created by one of the first settlers James Perdition. Everything reaches him, and no one can stand against him. He is our villain, and if you want your character to have some grief with him, mention it in your history.

Have fun, and enjoy.

  1. Name: Kyrio Streika
  2. Age: 24
  3. Gender: male
  4. Race: human
  5. Appearance: A black haired young man with blue eyes, Kyrio stands rather tall at six foot two inches, and is rather thin and wiry. He prefers to just wear a jacket, a button up white shirt, slacks and boots. He is almost always wearing a little smirk on his face.
  6. Personality: Kyrio is at a first glance a very kind and helpful individual who is always polite to everyone, no matter how they first acted to him. He is devoted, resourceful, determined, and he generally feels he has a sense of honor and commitment to his allies, and he definitely loves his ten year old son Matthew. He is also a manipulative Chessmaster who has a million plans spinning around in that head of his, he is a Well-Intentioned Extremist out to make the world a better place, ostensibly. He is more of a Hidden Agenda Villain, though, so not many people know what his agenda is exactly.
  7. Nationality: He will not say. Its probable he doesn't even remember anymore.
  8. Weapons/skills: He mainly uses a single katana, though this is far from his only weapon. Kyrio is an Evil Sorcerer who specializes in multiple elemental spells in silos. His real talent, though, is in the higher level spells and his special magic. Its called Perfect Illusion. By this, he can create illusions so realistic that its near impossible to tell what is real. The weakness to this is that the spell is concentrated in the sword. Touching the sword breaks the spell, and it will never work on you again.
  9. History: Kyrio is at a first glance an oddly unprofessional assassin usually hired by the big corporations who want someone out of their hair. As a leader of the elusive organization of assassins, Phantom Claw, he takes a lot of involvement in what is going on. He seems to have a plan going "for the good of everyone". The validity of this is debatable. Phantom Claw as an organization is mostly a private military type company with a hidden agenda. Much like Kyrio himself, there is a lot people do not know about Phantom Claw, fitting with the name. At the present, they are trying to stabilize the setting and reduce the amount of violence much of which they instigated...
  10. Miscellaneous: Despite his formidable talents, Kyrio prefers not using too much effort in dealing with people. Brute force is the last resort for him. He claims its very unpleasant when he has to kill people too directly. He usually prefers misdirection and cunning.

[up]Too powerful. Either give him some more weaknesses or remove few things (Such as being able to reflect attacks. I like the illusions bit, but reflecting attacks has nothing to do with it. If you want to give him a mirror shield or something (Ala Zelda) then sure. However, I presume you mean magical attacks, as it is too powerful to just reflect -every- and -any- attack). But in general, tone down the powers. Everything else seems fine, can you add in a bit there about what his organisation is, what it does, and so on?

Deranged X-Mas Figure
  • Name: Ashi Kyo
  • Age: Appears to be 9. In actuality, he is 99.
  • Gender: Male
  • Race: Human
  • Appearance: Black Kimono, Wooden Sandels, Wears a Sandogasa on his head, (A Japanese hat, here's a link here , ) has black hair. Carries a sheathe at his right side; looking as young as he does, (and in turn being short, ) the sheathe is shorter then normal size. Wears a simple leather belt on his waist, with a small bag carrying currency tucked in.
  • Personality: Generally cheery and optimistic, is eager, likes to relax and have fun, and also enjoys a good fight.However, when necessary, he'll show a more experienced, more serious, more mature side, with years of experience backing that. He can also show signs that he's much, much older then he looks, in that he can be rather lazy at times, have the occasional short attention span, engage in Old Man Rant's, and other such traits, but these generally don't become major hindrances.
  • Nationality: Japanese.
  • Weapons/skills: Master of the blade, specifically, the Katanna. His sword is longer then it's sheathe; the blade itself is normal size, but it magically changes size when going back into the sheathe, and vice-versa, in order to fit. If the blade is broken, it will disappear, and reappear back in its sheathe, good as new. The blade is also capable of cutting through inanimate objects, including armor... except for other blades/swords. Ashi himself is rather quick and agile, even for a boy his physical age.
  • History: Ashi Kyo at first glance appears to be nothing more then a 9 year old Japanese whelp who wandered into a country he didn't belong, but he is much more then that. Due to circumstances he cares not to disclose, (magic was involved, ) Ashi is, in reality, an incredibly experienced warrior, (with a rather incredible sword, ) but who had been vastly reduced in age — and until further notice, he is forever stuck at that age. He now travels the Wild West, for reasons known only to him...
Miscellaneous: Be careful when calling him 'kid, ' or any other similar name, or treat him as such either. He can tolerate it once or twice, perhaps more if he's trying to maintain a low profile, but don't push it, if you know what's good for you...

He means that link is crazy-long, so it elongated the page. It's really weird to look at. Just put it in some text and the problem'll be solved.

Anyway, interested. Would a Frankenstein's Monster gunslinger be alright?

@D Acriznips Take you're time. We need a good basis before we begin. Stuff in your profiles can be changed later (Like say you want his little sister killed rather than his little brother) but not things like powers unless you give me a REALLY good reason why (Justify it).

@Heavy DDR This is what the thread is for. We can toss around ideas for whether it is set on Earth or another planet. Start up the ideas generator, gentlemen, and tell me your preferences. Maybe we could even do a sort of inter-planetary thing similar to Cowboy Bebop? Who knows!

@Bindlestick That would be abso-fucking-lutely perfect. Go for it man, I beg of you. C Ome up with some awesome story, like how he ended up there. Origin stories can come later, but how did he end up in the wild west?

@Kkhohoho When I said race, I meant what creature is he. Human, angel or whatever? Japanese would go in nationality. If you think human would be too boring, then how about you make him an Oni (Or Demon) Human hybrid? Possibilities are endless remember. However, i did notice some spelling mistakes. I'm not going to go grammar nazi, but so long as we know what you're typing/saying, it should be fine. You're character is accepted as soon as you put in a viable race (Human/Oni/Demon whatever).

I can't help but be a little curious about this RP so I'm going to see if one concept I have would fall into the overpowered category.

My character owns a Magitek Tank.

[up][up][up]Hmm, instead of making the Claw the whole Government conspiracy, as it were, behind the RP, how about they're just an organisation saying 'WE'RE HERE TO SAVE YOU' while going 'But we might as well do whatever we can to do it'. There were complaints in the One Piece RP about how overpowered you were, so I'll be in charge of the government or big force that drives the plot. Can you remove the deflecting shield completely, in that case, as well?

Illusions are still a powerful weapon which you can use to great effect.

[up][up]Go for it. Put details about the tank in the Miscellaneous part of the profile if you want to. Really though, as a tank, the firepower I expect (Within reasonable boundaries) is obviously a main cannon, maybe some gatling guns, and just tricks to help it survive (Mechanism to flip it upright if it gets tossed on it's side/top, tires that can turn into wings, or shit like that. Don't just give it enough weapons to destroy a planet, and try to be creative). Welcome aboard (i will also accept Transforming Mecha, or if it comes apart to act like armour for him).

[up]I like that show too (Unless you mean a literal bird of thunder, in which case, that's fine also). I guess you would either be the Transforming Mecha or just... well I'll leave the details to you. If you just want ot take the characteristics of a Thunder Bird, and make it into a human, also fine. Good to have you.

Yeah, The Phantom Claw is the type to say that they are going to save you, but will do just about anything to make sure either that you need saving, or that certain events occur.

And I removed the shield thing.

[up]Accepted.

  • Name: Angel Six.
  • Age: Unknown
  • Gender: Male
  • Race: Angel
  • Appearance: Caucasian skin, brown eyes, black hair. His most striking feature is the pair of white wings that appear on his back. He wears a dusty yellow coat, stetsons, spurs, boots, black trousers, and a white shirt beneath a black vest with suspenders. About five foot seven, has a lean build, stubble and dirtied face (Most of the time, because of numerous sandstorms).
  • Personality: Aloof, but vigilant. Doesn't mind causing trouble, and has no quailms about being left alone. If someone picks a fight with him, he'll beat them bloody. A well balanced individual, although he is wary of everyone.
  • Nationality: American.
  • Weapons/skills: Two revolvers, one of them the size of his head. He uses it to cause big damage, enough to take down a small house. His other gun is smaller, and is a six shot, modified for quick usage. It can hold 30 bullets rather than just the normal six. He also uses his wings for combat in a myriad of ways, such as throwing up sand to blind enemies.
  • History: The last thing he remembers is a year back, and waking up with something like a hangover on the edge of an oasis. He knows he's an angel, but that's about it. After a month of just wandering, his mind soon came back, and he defended a few towns from bandits. Seeing how everyone used guns, he went to a gunsmith, and got himself armed. His clothes are modeled on the man who taught him to shoot, a sheriff of a town that is now desolate. He just travels, sometimes gets slightly drunk, and enjoys himself.

  • Name: James Perdition
  • Age: 27
  • Gender: Male
  • Race: Human
  • Appearance: Not alot is seen of him. He always wears the same black trenchcoat, and the same black hat. His hair is black, but no one rarely sees it. When he has opened the trenchcoat, a black vest and a white fine shirt can be seen. His trousers are black with furred trim, the hems lined with gold. Two gold cufflinks rest on the end of his sleeves, shaped to look like small horses.
  • Personality: Bored, bullying. Expects everyone to do what he says, although whether you obey doesn't matter to him. He'll just note it down, and pass it along to the authorities. Quiet, but not shy, and is aware of his presence whereever he goes.
  • Nationality: American (Texas)/English
  • Weapons/skills: Although it's rare to see him fighting, those who have remember seeing him going toe to toe with superhumans. He once took down a zombie that had light speed regeneration, by shooting it with bullets (He uses a two rifles slung over his back, and two revolvers, one in a chest holster, a smaller one attached to his foot.)
  • History: One of the first families to settle on the location the RP is set in, he was surrounded by richness, and used to servants. Once his family were gone, killed by an accidental fire, he goes around the world, instilling the fear of his family. The sheriff's office and marshals take his orders without question, and he is considered a hero among the people (Regardless of his personality). Anyone threatens the lands he own, they will pay.
  • Miscellaneous: Everything reaches him. He always knows what is going on, but most of the time doesn't care. He just wants the planet to remain turning, and to safeguard what his family gave. Hates Unnaturals.

  • Name: Ol' Stitches
  • Age: 12, though the majority of his parts are substantially older than that.
  • Gender: Male
  • Race: Frankenstein's Monster.
  • Appearance: At first glance, stitches is an abnormally tall human male, standing at around 6'11. He's bulky too, about as wide as two men, with musculature to match. His features are broad, jaw like a stone sculpture, and his black hair is coarse and burned off in some places. As one moves closer, however, they start to notice something... off. His eyes are two different colors and one of them bugs out of its socket, like it's too big for his skull. One of his thumbs is on backwards. A metal bolt juts out of the palm of his left hand. His skin is an assortment of colors, all of them deathly pale. The man's body is crisscrossed with stitches and bits of copper wire can sometimes be seen poking out of his half-dead flesh. He manages to hide most of his monstrous features with a pair of boots, a broad-brimmed hat, a pair of thick gloves, a bandanna, a pair of natty trousers, and a coat he stole off a cattle russler that he always keeps buttoned up.
  • Personality: Stitches isn't exactly a people-person . Most of the time, he's a bitter, angry thing, worn down from a life of wandering and abuse. A bit of a philosopher, too, though it's mostly just explanations as to why it's okay to punch out belligerent drunks. He has fear of fire as well, which is entirely justified.
  • Nationality: American. Mostly.
  • Weapons/skills: Being made of stitched-together corpse parts has its advantages, appearently, as Stitches is possesed of strength and endurance beyond most men. The limit of his strength is around the weight of two horses, at which point his semi-living muscles give out on him. He feels no pain, able to take a bullet in the gut and keep going for the rest of the fight . The bullet still damages him, sure, but he doesn't feel it. In addition, electrical attacks do not damage him, instead healing him. As an alternative to healing, he can store the lightning and release it as a projectile attack later on, turning himself into a walking battery. Damaged or mssing body parts can easily be replaced with access to a corpse in decent condition, though this procedure could be considered unethical and somebody else would have to do the sewing, since Stitches isn't the most dextrous of folks.

There's also some drawbacks, though. Stitches shouldn't be alive, and it shows. Animals hate him. Dogs will bark and growl, even attack if he gets too close. Vultures will sometimes land on his shoulders and tear the flesh from his face. Horses... well, long story short, it's best to not let him ride one. He inspires a similar, if much more subdued, reaction in ordinary humans , making social interaction more than a little difficult. He's also deathly afraid of fire, and with good reason. Fire attacks do more damage to him than normal, the flames spreading over his clothes and burning his body at an a greatly accelerated rate. To be able to heal with lgihtning or redirect it, he needs to be hydrated, which means he requires much more water than your average man. If he's dehydrated, he can't use his lightning abilities and he becomes substantially weaker.

In terms of equipment, he carries a double-barreled shotgun with the name "Clementine" carved into the stock with a screwdriver.
  • History: Contrary to the name of his kind, Ol' Stitches was not, in fact, created by a European madman. Rather, he was crafted by a frontier doctor by the name of Mad Doc Henderson. Now, Doc Henderson was an ordinary man, though his medical school degree was a obviously forged and some of his practices were questionable at best. The good doctor only aquired his nickname after he created Stitches. See, the town that he'd decided to settle in was the target of repeat attacks by a rather unpleasent group of bandits. One night, June 14th it was, after the bandits had left* , something came over ol' Doc Henderson. He snuck into the local graveyard, shovel in hand and whiskey on his breath, and dug up more than half of the dead, all men. He kept some parts and left others in their proper places . He worked for days and nights on end, body parts all sealed up in jars in the back room of his clinic. Once he'd finished his creation , he needed only to wait for the bandits to arrive.

And arrive they did. Doc waited for a few minutes, let the bandits get on with the usual routine. Then, he let it out. Ol' Stitches tore those bandits apart, screaming bloody murder all the while. When the ruckus finally died down, silence fell over the town.Neither Ol' Stitches or the doctor remember what happened next very clearly, but it involved lots of shouting and waving guns around and torches . They townsfolk chased Stitches away and locked the doctor away. Ever since then, the monster has wandered the West, looking for a new purpose. Or to die, he's not really sure himself.

And there we go. Let me know if it's overpowered, I tried to balance it out with the weaknesses and such.
