RP is here: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13500581760A08460100&page=1#1
The RP has started but you can still join.
- NOTE** Enough time has passed now that I am allowing a new member of the main crew to be created. Apart from that, you can still supply NP Cs to interact with the players. These differ from player characters in they do not need profiles, they just need a short summary of what they do and what they are in your post. Is your character the Marine in charge of the island, or is he the mayor, a shop owner. You can have multiple, but I don't want people rping with themselves. NP Cs may or may not also be taken control of by me when the original poster is needed but isn't available. Again, we will see how it happens.
Story: One Piece
. The treasure found by Gold Roger and now goal of pirates in the millions. One of the biggest challengers to the name, Monkey D. Luffy, has vanished, along with his crew, following the War of the Best. They were last seen on Sabaody but apart from that, nothing is certain. A month later, a new crew of pirates decide to find One Piece
, and enjoy all that this journey entails. However, the war threw the world in chaos, and people now rebuild their reformed lives. For better or for worse, the world is changing, and the Marines are riding their victory in the War over the Whitebeard pirates.
The problem is, while Blackbeard is off rampaging in the New World, he has unleashed a new threat on the unsuspecting Blues and first half of the Grand Line, known as 'Paradise'. A group of special Captain Colourbeard
pirates all vying for control over the ocean his own team of special pirates to seize control of the entire sea. Greybeard was the first attacker, raising up spirits of the dead who died at sea to take over the Blues that way. He failed, defeated by the first incarnation of the crew, and was succeeded by Greenbeard The Rotten
, who encountered the new crew as they refueled in Loguetown.
Narrowly defeated by the main characters, and finding out Blackbeard's plot, the crew has continued onwards into the Grand Line, unknowingly facing off against their next opponent, the richest pirate in the Grand Line: Goldbeard. A venerable Mafioso type leader with his sights on total domination. Unfortunatrly, Foxy the Silver Fox has hijacked the crew for a game of Davy Back fight.
But behind all this, the shadow of Blackbeard falls over the One Piece world with his terrifying machinations. He's proven his conniving skill, so who is being manipulated, and who is genuine? Who can you even trust? Time will tell.
There are also positions open for permanent marines too. You can make anyone up to Vice-Admiral level. The crew currently is not ready for Admiral level, lol.
IN ADDITION: Many chances to make NP Cs
of Foxy's crew. The current arc is known as a Davy Back fight, two pirate crews fighting a tournament style game in order to win crewmembers from the other. Foxy's crew is stolen from lots of other crews so there is ALOT of variety.
We're a third of the way in the Grand Line on Platinum Island, an island made entirely... of platinum. After this we go into the islands Goldbeard controls.
Up next after this brief (Or long) lull is the next Beard's island, Goldbeard, a man with the ability to turn anything he touches to gold, to either monetary or horrific and cruel effect
. He has some crewmembers, but it's possible to slip some in. There will bne future beards too, I intend to either go for Bluebeard next or Redbeard. W
You can have Shichibukai now but they are premade ones, of a sort. No Warlords yet as we have no way of interacting with them. No bringing in canon characters.
The RP has now started but more can come. If you are unsure, please message me. I will do my best to accomodate you, and it won't be hard!
After the massive events during the Whitebeard War, the Straw Hats vanished and the world was thrown into chaos. The two years that followed were certainly wrought with turmoil and revelations. Near the beginning of it, however, a group of pirates decide now is the best time to go on a journey!
The only problem is, while Blackbeard is off in the New World causing chaos, he has assembled his own team of special pirates to seize control of the entire sea. Ghostbeard was defeated by some semblance of the original crew in one of the Blues, but this attracted the attention of Greenbeard the Pirate. As the crew docks at Loguetown before moving to Paradise, Greenbeard, bolstered by Greybeard's loss, is about to set his own plans into motion for East Blue.
Narrowly defeated by the main characters, and finding out Blackbeard's plot, the next opponent is Goldbeard, a rich man who controls the first quarter of the Grand Line. Or it was, but Foxy the Silver Fox has hijacked the crew for a game of Davy Back.
But behind it all, the shadow of Blackbeard falls over the One Piece world with his terrifying machinations. Who is being manipulated, who is genuine? Time will tell.
This is the third, i think, One Piece RP that has been attempted (Not counting the desert version one), so... third time's the charm! All characters can be brought back, and all non-canon Devil Fruits are up for the grabs (The movies are considered non-canon in this sense, along with promotional materials like games and some tv specials when applicable).
I will be your GM. Saiga will roleplay the Captain of the ship.
Here is the profile. You can make a Marine, Pirate of miscellaneous. There is a maximum of 2 fishmen characters at this time, and 1 giant race character. If you want to make a villain, then post him in a profile. Preferably I would like villains and NP Cs
to be done by people who DON'T have main characters.
If you would prefer to instead just supply NP Cs
or some other 'add to the fun' role, just make ure you propose any potential NPC in this thread, or the discussion one. Perhaps people will wan to involve them in stories/plots.
As always, we're searching for One Piece. We will begin at Loguetown to take on supplies. You can be from the New World, Grand Line or Blues. Fishman Island is also possible. This is a... moderately intensive RP, being that we'll expect some quality to the posts therein. Not paragraphs of stuff but definitely no one or two liners and a bit of descriptiveness.
Without further ado, here's the profile to use.
Red Baron: Title or Nickname.
Allegiance: (Protagonist, Marine, Pirate, Warlord, etc).
Appearance: (Don't go into Mary Sue
details but we would like to know what he looks like. You may or may not want to include clothes. That's up to you. You can link pictures to what they look like too.)
Role on the Ship: (Not needed if Marine, instead put your rank here).
Personality: (Length of your choice, but be fair and logical)
Nationality/Race: (Alabastan, made up, fishman, mermaid, human, skypeian, iunno)
Devil Fruit power: (If they don't have one, leave this blank. If they do, please do not use canon ones. If a fruit you choose ends up becoming canon then you will still be able to use it. I don't want 5 people with the mera mera fruit, for example.)
Skills: May or may not be related to DF powers. Put rokushiki and other 'skillsets' including newkama kenpo and the like here. Custom styles will need some explaining to avoid New Powers as the Plot Demands
History: (Spoiler if you want, but give a basic definition of your character's background. Why they are what they are, how they got to where they are, etc. At least a paragraph (4-5 lines) please.)
Items: (What do they have with them at the the start. You can have up to 6 items but there is no hammer space in this RP! Be realistic in your character;s item use please unless their Devil Fruit power involves hammer space >.>
Extra/misc: (What it says. Stuff that doesn't go anywhere else.)
As GM I will be playing a side character who will be writing this all done.
Name: Max Saccharine
Red Baron: The Legend Writer
Allegiance: Protagonist pirate.
Appearance: A cowboy hat, cowboy boots, casual jeans with normal belt and an open shirt. He wears a light pink jacket over it and has short spiky black hair.
Role on the Ship: Chronicler, Historian.
Personality: A bit aloof, very relaxed. Good at making quick decisions and good at reading people. Prefers to avoid combat when possible and either hide (If Marines) or stand back and let Koya his pen do the main battle. Sociable but wary of Marines; he doesn't want them to know what he does currently, and keeps his history 'You Never Asked
' where his Marine history is concerned.
Nationality/Race: Sabaody Human.
Devil Fruit power: None, but his pen ate the Neko Neko No Mi model: Panther. It has many panther and pen/ink related abilities, such as being able to shoot jets of ink, make ink fountain cages, and grow wings consisting of feather quills. It's very loyal to Max but also self-reliant on it's own judgement. Can become a panther or a pen depending on what Max needs, and as long as the panther is fed regularly, he never needs to refill it for ink. It growls every now and then in pen form.
Skills: Basic marine combat. Very basic. An expert at improvised weaponry and 'Indy Ploy
' fighting tactics. Mostly works in tandem with Koya or other crewmembers. Will often disassociate himself from the party and act as a 'civilian' to gather intelligence, but is a general normal guy. Mostly likes using wooden planks, sometimes with nails in them, to fight, or anything that comes to hand.
History: Born on Sabaody, he joined the marines at an early age and rose to the rank of Captain before deciding it wasn't for him. He became a non-combatant, becoming an administrator to the marines and eventually rising up. He then joined a reporting team in Sabaody and soon was reporting on stuff around his area of th Grand Line. When Luffy fought Blackbeard and the Marines at Marineford, he decided he would be the one to write about this epic drama. He'd be a legendary writer. To this end, he went around travelling a bit, got into some trouble, ended up taking a fake alias to hide from his marine buddies and now goes jaunting with pirates For the Lulz
and meeting interesting people.
A journal made of Vivre Card.
An encyclopedia on Devil Fruits.
A blue Den Den Mushi.
One machete for when in jungle or forest.
A letter he won't let anyone else read.
Extra/misc: A reporter first and foremost, can be a bit oily at first like a used cars salesman but genuinely nice and patient with people. Loses his temper rarely, and will skip battle lots of times. He makes up for it with some degree in cooking and being the most educated of the gathered party.\\
