      Helm

      Greetings folks.

      At the prompting of others I have decided to host a roleplay. The formula will be very similar to Siиdяed's famous Anti-heroes. I have his permission and enthusiasm so I'm going to milk this for all it's worth.

      The formula is as follows:

      - People will submit their characters here. The more the better.
      - I will write a chapter roughly every week.
      - After each chapter you should PM me with whatever you want your character to do. If it's a choice to travel somewhere, tell me. If you want to fight someone, tell me. So on.

      I have high hopes for this. It is going to be a mixture between Gantz, Battle Royal, and my own twisted head. Survival and alliances are going to be key, as I'm telling you now that there is a high chance that not all characters that start this in the beginning are going to make it through, alive, in the end. Also I am going to make character interaction a priority and hopefully not get people spread out alone, unless they want it that way of course.

      I will let you in on the story now. This is not set in stone since this hasn't started yet, so feedback is appreciated.

      (Very sorry for the lack of quality here. Didn't mean to put 5 twice either, but eh.)

      Key:
      1) Helm's volcano. Holds all the secrets of your predicament, but four keys are required to open the steel door at the base.
      2) Some farm houses
      3) These three circles are island the south of the "small country". Who knows what secrets they have there.
      4) Beaches along this shoreline.
      5 - bottom) A large amount of abandoned houses
      5 -top) The gray = either ancient ruins or a labyrinth.
      6) This ocean goes on forever as far as you know.

      Your character is going to wake up on a "small country" with moderate memory loss. You will each have a dream that informs you that you have been taken here as punishment for some great wrong you have done and that in order to atone you must kill the others. Only once you are the last person alive will you be granted freedom.

      There is an alternative, however. That alternative is collecting the four keys, entering the volcano and killing the one responsible, Helm.

      There is a complication. that will prevent you all from simply allying up and seeking the keys together. Two to Three players will be randomly selected to be agents of Helm. If the agents get a hold of the four keys they can use them to summon Helm at full power and slaughter anyone they wish. These agents will have slightly improved battle abilities and have a decreased chance of death. I would advise the agents to keep their identity secret as long as possible, for once people know you will no doubt be hunted down.

      Also if you are selected to be an agent please tell no one on AIM or anything apart from here. If you wish to kill and reveal your identity in-game, than so be it.

      So, in summery, it is your choice. If you wish to try and kill everyone on the island, than you can try. If you wish to ally with people, than you better be sure of who they are for you could be allying with an agent. Trust will be something hard to come by in these lands.

      Questions, comments, etc. appriciated.

      Now then-- make characters:

      Name:
      Gender:
      Description:
      Personality: You can include if you would be willing to kill or not, etc.
      Weapon of choice: Guns not included. There will be guns, but those will go to those who find them.
      Talents: Are you good at making fires? Cooking? Tell us all about your character's talents.

      Finally, choose five non-lethal items you wish to have on your person at the start. This can be a hammock, a can of beans, a water bottle, a fishing rod, so on. Use your imagination.

      Sounds vaguely Lost like, though with a relatively Zelda-type quest feel to it.
      I like.

      Name: Nathan Aki
      Gender: Male
      Description: Tall, pale-skin, mid-length dark brown hair, blue eyes, average build
      Personality: Logical, emotionally dettached and thus able (if required) to kill
      Weapon of Choice: Prefers to use his mind or others to fight
      Talents: Building (bamboo huts, rafts, traps, whatever )

      Thick raincoat (), bag of marshmellows (there might be a campfire sing-a-long ), hammock, iPod, firelighter.

      If this works, it works. It'd be a nice distraction until Anti-Heroes starts again, of course.

      I might just do it... it does have a Zelda feeling to it... Does the non-lethal stuff include small rocks?

      I suppose you could include a small rock, though I don't see much use for it.

      Its setting is more or less modern times, though since you are on an island without mainstream civilization you won't find the same convenience. There could be automobiles found, of course pistols, rifles, sniper rifles, assault rifles, etc are a possibility if you find one.

      The world is the mystery. If it is even part of the Earth is also unknown, but the "small country" is only two to three days running distance from one side to the other. It is partly tropical, some desert, some sandy shores. Plenty of dangerous creatures running around to be sure.

      I admit Zelda isn't what came to mind, since I expect there may be a great deal of gore involved in this, but there are dungeons so I guess so. In order to work we need more players. I have one so far. Someone go fetch me nine more?

      Nice to have you De-loused. Choose five non-lethal items to have on your person at the start of the chapters.

      Okay people. A lot of you I expected to join, but you haven't. If I don't get three more players by the end of today than Helm is cancelled and in the trash as far as I'm concerned.

      I'm more than a little irked that someone else decided to do exactly what I'm doing without heed to how it would effect an all ready rikety system. Also it seems some of you would rather join that than this, which I guess I can understand given the more radical fantasy setting here.

      So there you have it.

      I would've expected a generic character to submitted into this RP so far. Why don't we go for a more softer character to contrast the personalities of the ones we have so far?

      Name: Alex Denman
      Gender: Male
      Description: Born and raised in a middle-class family, Alex has a mediocre background. Coming in 5'10" and 165 lbs., this 23-year-old bachelor with mahogany hair and green eyes is quite fit, but not exceptionally. After all, he is average Joe.
      Personality: He's your average Joe. Sure, he's not some ex-con, emotionless killer, or some bloodthirsty psychopath: he's just normal. He's also not really comfortable with the idea of killing people.
      Weapon of choice: Blunt weapons. Not much of a fighter though.
      Talents: After watching the whole series of Survivor Man, Alex has a couple tricks up his sleeve when it comes to surviving in the wild. All-in-all, he's just an amateur outdoorsmen.
      Items: Bottle, pocket knife, lighter, and two things you can choose.

      Name:Charlotte Briggs
      Gender:Female
      Description:Aged 22. 5'4 mid length auburn hair. Relatively attractive facial features. Slim form.
      Personality: Incredibly selfish and cowardly. Willing to kill to preserve her own or someone she loves skin. That said she would most likely fail at killing as she is generally incompetent.
      Weapon of choice: Entirely unexperienced with any kind of weaponry.
      Talents: Persuasion and an extent of manipulation. Not alot else.

      She's a common type of character.


      I get bored of "Male 19 year old/24 year old well built with a dark secret and dark hair. a bleak history with practice in fighting; preferred weapon is twin combat knives and a large shotgun. Thinks logically and is cold towards emotion"

      Gender: Female
      Description: aged 16. Normal sized. like 5'8". Asian features (she's Korean), black hair. Attractive facial features,
      Personality: Calm but friendly, has a sarcastic sense of humour. At present would not be capable of killing, but this could change.
      Talents: Quick reactions, very fast runner. No martial talents whatsoever (therefore not similar to Jeta Morgan!). Good at mathematics and computer programming.

      You can change your char if you'd like. [Edit: but not too much. A bit late now.]

      And nice. Welcome Toast. We have 5 players so now I AM SPARTA.

      I mean, I'll write the first chapter, 'kay? Hopefully I can make it a little more exciting than my first post indicated, but I'm making no promises.

      As long as there is a small black ball in the volcano I'm satisfied.
