Since the dawn of time indeed, since the sun first rose and cast its light on the darkness around it the gods have watched. As matter began, planets were formed, life was bred, humanity was born, civilizations were raised, empires were crowned, and wars were waged, they have watched. For every major event, every minor event, and everything in between, their eyes have been upon us. Their role has been minor; they have been the watchers and the keepers, never interfering except to right major wrongs and stop things from getting too far out of hand. Forever and beyond, they have watched.
But the gods have grown weary of watching.
Today, the gods stand up, stretch their legs, rest their eyes
and flex their muscles. Today, the gods search the planets indeed, they search all of reality for worthy warriors. They reach to the ends of the cosmos to find a group fit to amuse them. These warriors will not simply be men of impressive strength, but a group of varied personalities and abilities, for their sole purpose is now to make for something interesting to watch.
When found, these select few, these unlucky chosen ones, will be plucked from the fabric of known reality and placed within the realm of the gods, where they will have no choice but to play a game. A cruel game, devised by the gods for their own fun, which will put the lives of the players on the line. A game which leaves no choice but to play, or face the very wrath of the gods. A game of survival, with the demented creations of the gods themselves being the opposition.
OK, people. I realize this plot is a bit
odd. Suffice to say, this RP will not always be a simple matter of maiming everything in sight. Some opponents will be hard, some will simply be confusing, and some might be flat-out invincible. Do not enter unless youre willing to take some losses in this one, because well have to. Anyways, a few notes (because Sotek keeps asking me questions on MSN). Sorry there's so many; things keep occuring to me that need to be mentioned.
1. There will be violence. Obviously.
2. Im allowing up to two characters per member, though Ill only be using one myself. If you enter two, they can be completely unrelated and plucked from different parts of the universe. And you don't have to enter them both at once, either.
3. Try to keep from entering characters with abilities similar to those of other characters that have already been accepted.
4. Because our characters are coming from all over the universe, there's not much restriction. You can have highly advanced weaponry, magic, pets, or whatever, as long as you have some way of limiting it so that you can't spam anything too powerful. For instance (and I'm talking to you, Sotek), you can have a plasma cannon of some sort as long as, for whatever reason, you aren't capable of firing it every other post. Basically, guns are fine, swords are fine, grenades are fine; just be ready to limit yourself
. If you aren't willing to limit yourself, the gods might just do it for you. ;)
5. You don't have to be human.
6. This RP could get a bit hectic. Be ready for weirdness. In fact, it may end up being the oddest role play in the history of SC. The gods are going to be messing with us, and being that they're gods, there's no limit to the ways we'll be messed with.
7. Follow my bio format. History section is optional, seeing as were just going to be warped off to a different reality anyway.
8. Yes, I do realize that, in addition to being a word for an apparition or elusive supernatural being, Sprite is also a soda. Stop pointing it out. :P 9. I want you guys to understand: in this role play, we're dealing with the Gods. They are going to screw with us. Our characters are going to be toyed with and practically violated of their rights, so if you have a problem with that, do not join. You're free to leave at any point.
Without further ado, heres my character. Name:
Sprite (Real name Ricky Solomon) Age:
132 lbs Weapon:
His primary weapon is a specially crafted dagger, which he refers to as Ghostfang. Its hilt is made of silver, with a grip fit specifically for his own right hand, a simply designed cross guard, and a small diamond set in the pommel. The blade, only about 15 inches in length, is crafted from pure quartz, with both edges having been sharpened . He keeps this weapon in a sheath at his left hip whenever he isnt using it. In addition, each of his boots hide a simple silver knife, for emergency situations where he loses his dagger. And, finally, he is very proficient with throwing darts; he keeps ten of them, handcrafted from a lightweight metal, in a small pouch which is attached to his belt. Magic:
Sprite is an expert indeed, a master in the art of portal magic. That is to say, he can create openings in the fabric of reality and connect them to one another, effectively creating gateways in space. It is a complex form of teleportation. There is no real limit to the size of the portals he can make, although the size of the portal dictates the amount of his energy he uses in making it. He is effectively capable of being in two places at once, by moving only a part of his body through a portal. For instance, he could create one portal near himself and one near an enemy, then punch through the hole and hit the enemy, even though the rest of his body remains on the other side of the portal. Additionally, he is not the only thing that can travel through his portals he can use his magic to teleport inanimate objects, or even enemies. It is also important to note that sound can travel through his portals.
The only real restriction to his power is that he cannot create a portal anywhere that he has never seen for himself. That is, he could create a portal in a different country from miles away, but only if he had actually been to that country before. Skills:
Sprite is, indeed, a formidable opponent in combat. His fighting style is extremely complex, as he incorporates his magic into it regularly. He needs not be incredibly good at dueling, because when facing an opponent who is more skilled than himself, he can simply use his magic to stab them from behind, even while he is in front of them. His magic also grants him extraordinary stealth skill. He is a renowned spy, for he can hear conversations from miles away by creating portals near those he is spying on. Also, he is naturally quite quick and agile, even for his small size. Appearance:
Sprite is physically fit and in good shape, although far from being muscular; he is relatively skinny. His eye-length, jet-black hair is intentionally unkempt, giving him a slightly impish look. He wears a sleeveless, tight, grey undershirt, comfortably fitting black pants, black leather boots, and simple grey gauntlets, made only from sturdy cloth, on his wrists. His belt, also of black leather, is fitted on the left hip with a sheath for his dagger, Ghostfang, and on the right with a pouch to hold his darts. Over his undershirt, he wears an untarnished white vest. Several sizes too large for him, it hangs so loosely that it regularly falls from his shoulders to his elbows and needs to be adjusted. And, lastly, he wears a simple but elegant silver chain necklace. Personality:
Sprite is a very fun-loving individual, even if in an extremely twisted way. He sees killing as a sport. He isnt exactly evil, though, as he never kills anyone without being provided a good reason for them to die. However, when he does kill, he takes pleasure in finding creative ways of doing so. Despite this dark trait, he is generally a fun person, easy to be around and with a good sense of humor. He fancies himself something of a prankster, and uses his magic to come up with practical jokes that would otherwise be impossible. He tends to take nothing very seriously. He is adventurous, and always eager to try new things. History:
Since he was old enough to walk, Sprite has lived two very different lives. His gifts in the art of portal magic have constantly pulled him in different directions. As a child, he attended normal school with normal children, adopting the role of class clown. But unlike the other kids, he spent his free time taking much more serious schooling; he began his training in various dojos at age five. In these dojos, he was taught how to fight, how to remain unseen, how to master his magical abilities
effectively how to be a warrior. In one life, he was young Ricky Solomon, mischievous youngster with an aptitude for amusing pranks. In another, he was young Master Solomon, combative prodigy and tactical genius.
His double life continued into adulthood, although in different ways. Now, he is Ricky Solomon, fun-loving man with a distinct wild side, the first to try something stupid and the last to regret it. But he is also Sprite, renowned spy and assassin, hired by many people for many purposes. He is perfectly willing to break the law in any number of ways, but he is unique in that he will only kill if there is good reason for it, or in self defense.
Lets see yours.
