Welcome to The New TV Tropes Western! This is a reboot of The Great TV Tropes Western.
This thread takes place in a fantasy version of The Wild West, where all sorts of animals and creatures live alongside humans. We will play a Ragtag Bunch of Misfits who go on an adventure together. Our goal is to defeat B.O.S.S. (Bountiful Outlaw Shared Syndicate), a Nebulous Evil Organization of the most dangerous outlaws in the west, with members spread out across the world. Here you can submit your player character, as well as a B.O.S.S. member as an evil NPC, and any other major NPCs you want to establish before the thread starts.
I plan to start the thread sometime in the next few days. Have fun signing up!

I'll probably hash out further characters (like any BOSS characters) later.

You don't want characters' personalities or back stories on these sheets? Huh.
Well, I'll get started on mine later, after I get home from work.
Oh, you can absolutely add those! I may add those to the template, though I haven't thought about my characters' backstories much yet.
Oh, also appearance is another thing I would've included, if I were GM. I don't really have any idea what your character looks like, and only sort of what your B.O.S.S. member does. No idea what kablammin45's character looks like either. EDIT: And age, too.
Anyway, I'm gonna start working on my sheets shortly, and will hopefully be done in just a while.

Alright, here we go. I tried not to make it too long, but I was inspired and wanted to be thorough.
Now, why would a monster hunter want to go against B.O.S.S.? Well, around a year ago, he was hired by a doctor to come to a small town threatened by a large bear monster. Oddly, the doctor wanted Kason to capture the bear monster rather than kill it or drive it away. With much difficulty, Kason did, but it was only after capturing the monster that the doctor revealed his true intentions. He didn't want to get rid of the monster; he wanted to use the monster's blood in an experiment on the townsfolk, intending to hybridize them with the monster to make them stronger, believing that this was for the best for everyone in the long run. Horrified, Kason put the monster down, and warned the townsfolk before trying to catch the doctor, but unfortunately the doctor got away. Kason has been after the doctor ever since, and has learned that the doctor has fallen in with B.O.S.S. for funds, resources, and test "volunteers" in exchange for him helping their endeavors with his various "experiments". So, Kason is working against B.O.S.S. because he fears what could become of the doctor's experiments if he isn't stopped.

Edited in a drawing and Heidi's age into my post.
I know my character isnt such a good guy, but I simply chose him because 1) I love me a redemption arc and 2) I've just always loved making characters that kinda toe the line morally. sort of a chaotic-good-with-hints-of-chaotic-neutral situation.
@Omega-Z: I'm curious, when you say "emotional manipulation" as a skill/ability, what does that mean? Like he's just good at getting under people's skin or something actually magic?
To me that's the main thing that sticks out, since messing with other player characters' emotions seems unfair if they didn't want their character feeling that way.
But, I'm not the GM, so.
oh, its not an ability, hes just a manipulative person when he needs to be, and is generally good at getting to people with thinner skin. basically he's just good with words.
(me hoping this doesnt die already cus it sounds promising)

Here's my character so far. Note that I don't have a backstory in mind for him yet.

Is the GM supposed to approve each character before the players can join? I'm still a little unfamiliar with this subforum.
Either way, I approve all characters so far. You can join the roleplay whenever you're ready, if you haven't already.
@Dr No Puma: Yeah, traditionally the GM responds to let them know if either they're approved, or if they're not approved and why so that the player can possibly address the issue. The character being overpowered/Mary Sue-ish, the character just plain not fitting in the setting, or the character seemingly having no motivation/reason to go along with the plot/party are the main reasons someone's signup wouldn't be accepted.
You could also delegate the responsibility to others that you trust, but you'd want in mentioned in the first post somewhere who has that authority so that people won't be confused by people other than yourself making those responses.
I have decided that Edmund is a little too serious and edgy for me to play. I don't think I could play that kind of character well enough, and I also don't think I'd really want to. I'm going to make him an NPC, though I don't plan on using him after the beginning once we leave the town. My new character will be his brother, Ben. I have updated the first post to show this.
