Band Humor RP Sign-up:

I AM ALREADY HERE.
Alright everyone! I've got an uber-wacko idea for the maddest roleplay I can think of! It's....

Personified musical instruments. You should be rofl-ing or facepalming or both right about now.

Simply put, the RP is basically slice-of-life, except it features characters who personify and exemplify the stereotypes associated with various musical instruments and the people who play them.

Lasciate ogne ragione, voi ch'intrate.

Sign-ups here... for those who are daring enough.
Um, well then, if you don't mind, dance a little more? Kalinka? Malinka? Just play the darn chords!
Behold the power...of READING!
Sounds quite interesting, though I think IŽll wait for an example sign up sheet before I make a character. Thinking of piano/organ. [lol]
Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark, and professionals built the Titanic.
I AM ALREADY HERE.
Character Sheet Template:

Name: *no overly long names please*

Sex: M/F (however you may add details on whether character is LGBT or others)

Appearance: *up to you, but please for the love of Mozart, no Mary Sue-ish types*

Instrument: (which instrument is this guy/gal representing? There are six major groupings... Strings either plucked or bowed, Woodwinds, Brass, Keyboards, Percussion, and Others)

Personality: (this must be related to the perceptions, stereotypes, and ideas regarding said instrument and its players)

Let the cacophony begin....
Um, well then, if you don't mind, dance a little more? Kalinka? Malinka? Just play the darn chords!

Any and all instruments are welcome, of course! XD Now then, who wants to sign up first? Any brave souls?

I'm interested! Even though I don't play any instruments as I am musically challenged xD

Welcome to Purgatory!
Right now, I'm on the line between whether I should join this, or if I've already signed up for enough R Ps and would be spreading myself a tad thin. If I do sign up, I think my character would be a major slacker with no work ethic. It would be easy for other people to get on his good side, but it might not be wise to work with him, since he can be a real pest under the right circumstances. His clothes would be baggy and usually unwashed, showing that he would always take the shortest and sloppiest path from start to finish, even when it comes to basic survival.

The instrument he's based on, you ask? Why, the triangle, of course.

Hurr
If this gets up and running with enough people, turn tables.

I AM ALREADY HERE.
So, since no one's posted their character sheets yet, I'll just go over which instruments have been claimed by which tropers:

ckretaznman: theremin, KSPAM: electric guitar, Endark Culi (tentative): triangle, Saturn: turntable

Welcome to Purgatory!
You know what? If most people are waiting for someone else to sign up before they can muster up the will to do so themselves, I may as well officially join. After all, even if my other two R Ps suddenly pick up their pace, I think my previous gaming experience has given me the skills to manage this situation effectively.

Name: T, or if that's a tad too short, Tee (full name Thaddeus Threeps)

Sex: Male

Appearance: Take this kid, make his hair black, and presto! It's a pretty good likeness of T!

Instrument: The Triangle (Percussion)

Personality: T's defining trait is his laziness, as perhaps the greatest stereotype of the triangle is that it's simple enough for anyone (especially slackers hoping to pass music class) to play it. He's never the most prominent voice in a crowd, nor does he want to be, but T will always contribute to a discussion if expected to. Really, the only time one would see T take charge is if his superiors were in life-threatening danger, and even then, it's mostly because he'd have to inherit some of their responsibilities. That doesn't mean he only sees his peers as mere tools, though; T does try to make friends with others, despite knowing how all of his flaws could dampen the relationship.

I AM ALREADY HERE.
I'd sign up right here and now... I just need to decide whether my character's going to be embodying the clarinet, the oboe, or the recorder. For sure, though, my first character will definitely be a woodwind.

Name: Maki Buvelle

Sex: F (Asexual, as in not very concerned with any sex. If love/like happens, then it happens.)

Appearance: http://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=552595

Instrument: Theremin

Personality: A weird and foolish person. She's quite airheaded and her mind wanders off into strange places. Maki loves adding background music to her life. She has the ability to sneak up on people without notice and has fun frightening others. Although generally a nice person, she is avoided by much of the public because of her eerie aura. It's because of this that nobody really knows what she's interested in. Though friendly, she does not take well being touched by others. Maybe more on this later (this must be related to the perceptions, stereotypes, and ideas regarding said instrument and its players)

This is just a placeholder.

Can-I-Bus
Name: Deej

Sex: Male

Appearance: Fat and tall with small buttons.

Instrument: Drum Machine.

Personality: Deej is a geek. He lives for two things, computers and video games with zero interest in anything not related to these things, as a result he has very little social skills despite a strong desire for popularity making him very annoyed at the slightest sight of bullying towards both himself and others.

The smartest idiot you will ever meet.
I AM ALREADY HERE.
Name: Randsell

Age: 50-ish (a reference to the instrument's very long history)

Appearance: [1]

Instrument: Recorder

Personality: He has a tendency to clown around quite a bit. This is mainly because he's around children a lot, unfortunately this does lead to accusations of childishness and immaturity. In fact, nearly everyone else finds him unbearable, and it is widely accepted that he's never serious about what he does. They couldn't be more wrong.

Name: Sadie Black

Sex: F

Appearance: Dark haired and pale skinned. Looks a bit like a banshee.

Instrument: Flute

Personality: Cheerful and talkative. Can easily talk for half an hour straight due to her large lung capacity. Nice to everyone, but a bit lost in her own thoughts. Despite this, she is smart and practices regularly, aiming to be the eat flautist there ever was.

Ah, now this is getting interesting... because as it transpired in history, the reason the recorder was relegated to second-class status was because the flute displaced it out of the orchestra.

Ooooh! Bit of rivalry then?
ಠ_ಠ
I AM ALREADY HERE.
[up]Not really... as history shows, it never was much of a contest between the two. Once the flute got popular, it began taking more and more of the role in the orchestra once given to the recorder. Eventually, the recorder was ejected from the orchestra, fully replaced by the flute. The only way it survived to this day was by being used in elementary music classes, and only then as a "starting instrument" for more "serious" endeavors like the violin, clarinet, etc.

I'd think he remembers what she did to him, but she never really gave a f*** about it. Of course, she probably shares the general attitude of everyone else regarding him....

This looks fun! I wonder how this character would fit in with all the crazy awesomeness...

Name: Antonia

Sex: Female

Appearance: Good evening ladies and gentlemen.

Instrument: Violin

Personality: Antonia is serious and focused, to the point of being aloof and, if you'll pardon the pun, highly-strung. She remains humourless even in the most ridiculous of situations. Though she can be a bit stuck-up, she is capable of warming up to others. Just don't expect her to be amused by their wacky antics.
What's the point in giving up when you know you'll never stop anyway?

Hey kind of new to R Ping in this forum. Just here to enter a roleplay.

Name: Floyd Morrison

Sex: M

Appearance: Dresses just like his namesake a multicolored glow in the dark keyboard. Switches colors of his shirt all the time and for some strange reason changes his playing tone accordingly. Green might mean dubstep-esque mash up cover, while black might be a 1970s style organ solo. Long hair, cleaning habits of a stereotypical stoner and a space cadet glow in his eyes. The usual.

Instrument: Moog synthesizer (the electric keyboard that invented acid and progressive rock.)

Personality: Floyd is the stereotypical high school stoner. He likes listening to out of this world compositions to tickle his keys: something only he can provide but is often too high/ drunk to play the melody he needs. When sober is meticulous to detail and is known for inserting 20 minute solos of himself into other peoples productions just because he feels like it. A bit of a bohemian and a mad visionary.
