      Dominion

      Dominion
      (The Sequel to Helm?)

      Spoiler for Basic story:

      Sindred style RPG. If you don't know what this means, search around the arcane arena until it becomes clear.

      This is more or less a red verses blue type of roleplay, all of it taking place on a space station between the two warring planets. There will be money, levels, equipment, skill points and one special power.

      NOTE: Please do not let the size of this post intimidate you. If you wish you can skip down to the bottom and fill out a character sheet right away. The rest you can figure out with time.

      Factions

      You are either with the Apians or the Psycians. The former has the home field advantage and can often use parts of the station to benefit them. (example: medical chamber, readily available shops, internal security, equipment lockers, key cards, etc). The Psycor agents have none of these advantages, but as a staple will start with slightly better equipment.

      Four for each side, eight players total. Will accept no more.

      Spoiler for Players:


      Equipment and Stats.

      There are only four stats: Hit Points (HP), Attack Power (AP), Armor Grade (AG) and Special (S).

      Hit Points: How much damage you can take before death.
      Attack Power: Effectiveness of attack, be it a weapon or fists.
      Armor Grade: Effectiveness of armor, or protection. Will be different for head and torso.
      Special: Number of times you can perform your power. Will regenerate if you sleep.

      When your AP is SIGNIFICANTLY MORE than the opponent's AG, you have a chance to kill in a single strike.
      When your AP is MORE than the opponent's AG, you do extra damage.
      When your AP is THE SAME as the opponent's AG, you do normal damage.
      When your AP is LESS than the opponent's AG, you do less damage.
      When your AP is SIGNIFICANTLY LESS than the opponent's AG, you deal almost no damage.

      Items that will raise one or more of these stats can be found around the station, as well as drop off of NPC enemies. If you kill a player you assume all the items that player has. These stats will also rise slightly after each level.

      Money

      New equipment and items can also be bought, including healing items, for a price. The currency on board is Munata, which can either be used at the main human-run store on F1 or at various shop terminals. Apian soldiers may use any of these at any time. Psycor agents must first hack into a shop terminal. Anyone who hacks into a terminal, however, gets a slight discount.

      Munata is dropped by NPC monsters as well as found scattered around. You could try selling stuff, too.

      Monsters

      Yes, the Apians have a bit of a monster problem, specifically on B1 of the station. Seems mad scientists aren't worth the paper of their check. These guys, be it mutated rats or lizard-men with broadswords, offer a decent opportunity to better your character with experience, equipment and money.

      The Psycor agents will have easier access to these guys since they start out on B1, giving them possibly another advantage. Assuming they don't get killed by them.

      Skill Points

      You get to distribute 100 points into the following categories in Oblivion/Fallout style. You will get an additional 20 or more points to distribute every level.

      Mainly these determine if you fail/succeed in certain situations. Want to set up a bomb? Better be good in demolitions. The heat generator blow and now everything's icy? Cold resistance, please. Need in that top-secret door? Lockpicking. Want in a store terminal or access to turrets? Well, hacking...

      Spoiler for Skill points:
      Levels and Experience

      There are a total of six levels. Of course, you all start at level one.

      Level/exp required/skill points/stat boost

      Level 01/0/100/+10HP+1AP+1AG+1S
      Level 02/50/20/+5HP+2AP+1AG+0S
      Level 03/200/20/+10HP+2AP+1AG+1S
      Level 04/500/20/+15HP+4AP+3AG+0S
      Level 05/1100/30/+15HP+4AP+4AG+1S
      Level 06/2000/50/+25HP+8AP+7AG+2S

      How to gain experience.

      Kill the following:
      Player Character - 150xp
      Large monster - 45xp
      Small monster - 10xp
      Non-player human - 60xp

      Do the following:
      Successfully hack - 10xp
      Successfully open lock - 10xp
      Dodge an otherwise fatal blow - 10xp
      Put together a bomb or other explosive device - 20xp
      Convince an NPC through charisma - 10xp
      Deal significant (more than 50&#37 damage to a player-character - 30xp
      Heal from less than 30% to full - 10xp

      Special

      Yes, there is magic in a sci-fi. Let's just get over that fact and get on with it. Your special gauge (everyone starts out with 1/1) determines how often you can use your power. To regain Special you must take a small nap, assuming you're not in a situation with enemies nearby and cannot do so. Thus it's a good idea to include taking a nap in your actions if you're in a safe location.

      You can choose one power out of the list:

      Spoiler for Powers:


      Map

      Pain in the ass to make. We have B2,B1,F1,F2 and F3.

      Spoiler for Map:


      Character Sheet.

      Wanna play? Fill it out. Better act quick if you don't want one side or the other to fill up.

      Nice to have you, Grod.

      Just to clarify, though, with the superior skill power you have to specify only one from the skill point list.

      (For example:
      Power: Superior Skill, Sneak.)

      Unfortunately it doesn't give +50 to every skill. Everyone would love that power then.


      edit: I made superior skill last 3x longer than before.

      Hmm. This is kinda different. I like it.

      Name: Broet Mantane
      Sex: Male
      Age: 24
      Appearance: A bit over average build, not much, and a bit over average height. He's got plain brown hair. In fact, he looks like he should be doing paperwork somewhere, not being a soldier. He's really quite boring, and he knows it.
      History: He was part of a rich family when he was young. He grew up pampered and well educated. He didn't really like the other rich kids much, and his parents wouldn't let him, uh, socialise with anyone else. They were really trying to force him into a life he didn't want so he joined the army, partly to get away from them, and partly to spite them. He's been in the army for four years now, and in that time became all right at demolitions and using weapons.

      Name:Alucard Sepet Dalv III

      Sex:Male

      Age:25


      Appearance:Youthful feminine features; deathly pale. Long bright white hair. Blue eyes, Tall and thin, with almost no muscle mass, but surprising agility.


      History:

      Futuristic earth style: From a long noble family blood chain, reaching back centuries. Raised under the supervision of a mysterious servant who has served his family bloodline longer than anyone cares to remember. His mother died in childbirth, his father's whereabouts have been unknown since then. Alucard devoted his time on Psycor to finding his father and seeking revenge. He blames him for the death of his mother, and knows his father was one of the most ruthless nobles in their bloodline. Controversially a soldier in the face of his family's tradition of nobility, he seeks primarily to try and repent for his notoriously cruel, blood soaked and mysterious family line.

      Name: Hugh Galahad
      Sex: Male
      Age: 37
      Appearance: Tall, mid-length dark brown hair, blue eyes, average build, rough tanned skin.
      History: A drifter, who wanders aimlessly with little purpose beyond escaping stability and settlement, which he sees as both entrapment and boredom.
      Somewhere along the way he found his talent in gun-craft, and has looked to hone it ever since, treating his skill with a sense of pride that he cannot muster for much else about his character.
      Worked hard to join the agentry with little reason beyond needing a distraction. Little committment beyond that, loathe to become a permenant feature anywhere.

      Name: Moses

      Sex: Male

      Age: 29

      Appearance: Standing at 5'”11, muscular. He has short, dark brown hair that barely reaches his dark brown eyes. His legs seem to be quite defined. Skin is nearly pale.

      History: His history didn't begin until he was diagnosed with his cancer. Smoking was something he always needed, and it continued to be. Knowing he only had around six months to live didn't stop him. Instead, the diagnosed life-span of six months only fueled his feeling of purpose once news of the Apian attack surfaced. For a week he drove his body to it's capabilities, so he would be ready. If he was to know how long he had left then he was to use the rest of his body's life to fight.

      Edit:

      No-name is sneaky. he edited his post for his character sheet. I can't tell who posted first since you can edit your post as many times as you want, etc. etc.

      The point is one of yous needs to go Apian. NAO. Sort this out.

      You wouldn't want to be with Psycor anyway. I don't think any of them have enough hacking yet to get into a shop terminal. (besides no-name, but, ye know).

      The point is one of yous needs to go Apian. NAO. Sort this out.

      You wouldn't want to be with Psycor anyway. I don't think any of them have enough hacking yet to get into a shop terminal. (besides no-name, but, ye know).
      I can honestly say Deloused was in before no name. I saw.

      Also the editing times hold testimony to this.

      Well we're waiting on the final two. Starting new chapter anyway.

      Oh and I don't intend to let anyone other than the initial eight to join, even after a few players have been killed off. One big goal of this RPG is to actually end it one way or the other.

      Keep in mind, Psycor agents, that finding a way to blow up or ruin the station while escaping alive is a good idea.

      Apians, taking out the ship the Psycor agents came in is also a decent plan.

      I chose Psychian, because I feel like the team protecting their own home planet is going to have more willpower to fucking beat the living shit out the fucking assholes.

      Also, since this is more serious than I thought, I changed up my skills to please my team rather than just me.

      I was planning on choosing smarter skills, but then I said fuck it Gestalt is just going to kill off my character first chapter anyways.

      I can no longer edit my first post. I hate it when that happens.

      Anyway I'm reserving a slot for Abra, so that leaves only one open slot left.

      And yes, De-loused, I am going to kill you off. But be happy that for the short time that you're alive you can hack into and use the Apians' own turret guns against them.

      You mean the whole two of us, one of which doesn't even want to be there?
