      U N F O U N D

      There's been a break since Anti-Heroes finished, and we've seen a vague hiatus in Helm and Taiba, which vaguely encouraged me to take up the mantle and try again. Partially because I want the community entertained, and partially because I like being in charge of stuff. A vague partiality mix.

      Unfound will run on the same principles as Anti-Heroes, Helm and Taiba, with the exception being that instead of chapters posted for all to see, players will get an update on what their character is doing through pm.
      This essentially means that we don't get players knowing too much of what they shouldn't, ie, what other players are up to on the other side of the world.
      Unfound will also feature 'flashbacks', which will explore the past of the player's character. You will have no control over these, and thanks to an amnesiac plot device will be learning your past as your character remembers it. Whether this affects gameplay or gives you clues as to the general scheme of things is up to you.

      Unfound is largely based on two cult television programmes, the first - and most obvious - being Lost, the second being the Prisoner (a show from the '60s, with very Lost-esque plot twsits and intrigue, as well as a few vaguely similar premises). Helm features heavily in some areas of gameplay and setting (Gestalt's a genius, I'm stealing it all while I still can). There are other cultural inspirations and references - whatever I'm reading or watching invariably seeps into my creativity sooner or later - but there should be the occasional spark of uniqueness as well.

      T H E P R E M I S E

      A modern setting, 2008.
      The players are all the survivors of an unknown incident, who all begin washed up on a beach on an Island.
      They do not know how they came to be on the Island, what they are the survivors of, who the other survivors are, or anything about their past. Gradually they will experience 'flashbacks' as to their past, possibly revealing secrets and explanations as to their present situation.
      There will be challenges and intrigue on the Island...'cause it would be a fairly shit game otherwise, really. There'll be guns and stuff, I promise.
      Survival, escape, or perhaps finding answers are all valid objectives for now.

      C H A R A C T E R S U B M I S S I O N

      If you want to take part, just fill this in and post it here. I might start limiting it if there's too much interest (I'm both ambitious and vain in my predictions) but hopefully there should be at least some interest. Player interaction, especially as you only know what your character knows and may come to rely on others for information as to what's going on, will be tantamount.

      NAME Should be modern, first and last names, avoiding fantasy. Names like 'CHIDE WOODGRASS' will be shunned and mocked.
      GENDER Male or female, I suppose. Let's not go too far into roleplay.
      RACE/ETHNICITY You're all human. White Caucasian, for example. Not that I'm saying you should be white. I'm just...it was an example...
      COUNTRY OF ORIGIN Uh...England...Wales...Scotland...Ireland...there may be more countries in the world. Check Wikipedia.
      PERSONALITY Generalised details.
      ARCHETYPE See Archetypes below.

      Don't try and suggest backstories. The point is that you learn your past as your character's amnesia fades. It adds to the fun. Probably.
      That or you end up hating yourself for what you've done in the past, and that you can't change it. Welcome to reality.

      Spoiler for ARCHETYPES:


      This should work out nicely. Updates will be sent through pm weekly. Should I happen to be in such a good mood I send them faster, then that's nice.
      Should I not get actions returned on time, they will be late. Which isn't nice. But also, not my fault.

      Since there are no chapters to be posted, this thread can serve as general discussion about Unfound, or whatever...oh, assuming people are interested in joining in. Which, after such a long post, they surely will.
      Surely?

      ...that's it, feed the power-lust. It won't end nicely if you keep that up.

      Sure you can play. Just fill in the character submission and post it here and you're done.

      ...obviously not done, done. You still have to do the rest of the game.

      OK I'm in, but some questions.


      Archetypes; compulsory?

      Also what would the archetype of a character like "Sawyer" be. Yeah we all know its LOST, I'm just sayin' it.


      Also for example someone like Hurley? I don't see him as any of those particularly.



      I'll post character sheet once I destroy 20 Metal Gear RAYs.


      It's not even the damn last boss.

      Latino, Hispanic, it's all the same to me. That'll do, Kromoh.

      Yes, Omega, Archetypes are compulsary, but they don't necessarily fit everything. Hurley wouldn't fit them, exactly. Neither would Charlie, or even Sawyer.

      There are reasons for this.

      I'm not even going to pretend it's not Lost.
      Though also Prisoner. Maybe other stuff too.

      So I can't have a charlie-esque character?







      Also; did ABC work well?

      Bleh, you can have a Charlie-like character if you want. The Archetypes play a fairly minor role in the grand scheme of things, all the characters will have fairly mixed flashback backstories.

      The Archetype is similar to the Alignment in Anti-Heroes, except far better defined...or rather, will be. Eventually.

      I understand why you might dislike it, though. It prevents the more realistic average-Joe characters that very few people want to play emerging so well, but there is a reason behind this.

      I'm almost up to date on season 4, Omega. ABC worked reasonably.

      I might join the only problem is I have a terrible habbit of not sending in actions for anyone's arcane arena roelplays.

      Bleh, take your time.

      Since there aren't meant to be new people turning up all over the place, I'd like to start Unfound with one large batch of players, and then kill them off until we get a nice usable number.

      Something like that would be nice. Essentially, it'll be difficult to join after it's started.

      Do it on extreme now.

      I've come to terms that I will join under the condition that this giant golden dome is included somewhere in the UNFOUND world:

      We just call them black in England, Grod.

      Six characters so far? That's good.

      I'll see about the golden dome. It's...vaguely entracing...

      Maybe a few more characters, then I'm starting the game. Finally worked out a - vaguely - comprehensible and logical backstory, that wavers vaguely from Lost. Which is good.
      Everyone likes originality.

      Then this thread will be used for discussion, updates on rules or whatever, and maybe a few extra things to keep you all interested.

      In each update you'll get your character's chapter, you'll get a time of day, an inventory, a map (that'll be revealed more as you explore more), and a health status.
      That's right, I steal ideas.

      I'll explain them more when we come to it. Right now I'm pretty happy with how it's all going and vaguely can't wait to start.

      OH. I vaguely might have forgotten a few addtional things for the profiles. If you've already done a character, add these on here, or I'll remind you later. If you're just submitting a character, fill this in instead.
      Sorry.

      NAME As in original post.
      GENDER As in original post.
      RACE/ETHNICITY As in original post.
      COUNTRY OF ORIGIN As in original post.
      PERSONALITY As in original post.
      HAIR Hair style (curly, long, short, cropped, straight) and colour (brown, black, blond...which is the only English word I know that is spelt differently when feminine, blonde, see? You live and learn).
      EYE COLOUR Well, what colour the eyes are.
      HEIGHT Tall, short...average. That's about it.
      DISTINGUISHING FEATURES Scars in humorous places? Abnormally large nose?
      ARCHETYPE As in original post.

      Anyway; hair; White. Long and in a pony tail. Bear in mind this guy is like Locke-age.

      Eye colour; brown

      Height 6'0


      Distinguishing Features; small scar on left eye. The look of an old well built guy with white hair and a russian accent and a ponytail is kinda distinguishing in itself. One arm seems to fit oddly, almost as if it wasn't his.
