BIG RECALL!

If you are STILL Interested in making part of the RPG, There are two things you must do:

First, reply to this with your USERNAME CONFIRMATION and your CHARACTER SHEET

Secondly, add me via my skype, "unnamed.ender" (Ignore quotes)

I'm reworking the flapparounds of the RPG and planning ahead on the plotline, the only thing is that we yet do not have enough supporters to begin an RP.

See ya, quackos, Captain Halno/Heiro/Hanzz (God, i have so many names!) out!

Also, New rules, since GM's actually are the ones who play NPC's, they can't have 'proper' characters, that means that all characters made by them fit into the NPC section.

Here's my character sheet:
Basics

* Age: 39
Place of Birth: Rebel HQ 6 (before it's destruction a year later)

Social Class/Community Status: Was the son of a high-ranking rebel commander, but is now a captain in the ranks of the enforcers.
Language: Human

Physical Description

* Height: Slightly taller than average.
* Weight: Slim
Hair: Black
Eye Colour: Blue
* Limb Dexterity: Right Handed
* Detailed Physical Description: Average-ish height, has a scar on his left hand from a mantis attack, and the mark of the enforcers is tattooed onto his back. He is kind of muscular from training when he was younger, but is not that strong.
* Typical Clothing/Equipment: Black military outfit, black cape, smart attire. Has a long black katana that he carries around in a sheath, which has been strengthened many times to make it resistant to even the attacks of mantis. He also carries around a enforcer mini-hacker, a device which enables him to unlock hacked doors.

Personality/Attributes

Personality: He is slightly arrogant, and vain, but less so than many of his colleagues. He always is very calm and collected, even in the middle of battle, but has been called "emotionless", by many people. He tends to consider himself as superior to everyone, but treats those under his command fairly, and doesn't disrespect his commanders. He has little empathy for non-humans, and considers them lesser species(but he is less xenophobic than some enforcers), but tends to be more lenient towards humans.
* Skills/Talents: He is a excellent commander, and is very good at encouraging people to fight for him. He is also quite a talented hacker.
* Favourites/Likes: He likes being in charge, and having power over people.

* Goals/Ambitions: To become like his father, and command an entire fleet.
* Strengths: He is a quick thinker, and can devise a plan for most situations. He is also good at encouraging people to join him.
* Weaknesses: Hates mantis, and may act rashly against them.
* Fears: Paranoid about mantis, and is worried about the growing power of the federation.
* Hobbies/Interests: Likes reading, fencing and marksmanship.
Regular Routine: Wake up, plot course, instruct crew, study, make decisions about trade and fighting, report to enforcer base 8, read, fight, trade, go to sleep.
Philosophy of Life: With power, comes happiness.
Attitude Toward Death: Blocks the idea from his mind, and doesn't acknowledge it.
Religion/Beliefs: Non-Religious, believes in the superiority of humans.
Fetishes/Strange Behaviors: Has occasional flashbacks, but they are rare.
Education/Special Training: Taught by his father, trained to be a leader, spends large amounts of time studying.
Place/Type of Residence: Captains cabin, Enforcer assault ship.
Occupation: Captain of an Enforcer Assault ship.
Place of Work: The Astrukal, (Enforcer assault ship.)
Past Occupations: Has worked as a helmsman, for the enforcers, and spent a while as a hacker.

I still need you to add me on my skype for future communication, my skype address is 'unnamed.ender' (ignore quotes)

You know what? Holidays are coming up soonish, so why not? Heck I'll even get Skype (I have Teamspeak).
So here's a physical-oriented character. And by physical, I mean a freaking Rockman.

Basics

Name: Melia Malachite (Mel-lee-a Mala-kite)
Age: 35 Vrachos Cycles (Problaby a lot longer in Human years like a hundred or so)
Place of Birth: Vrachos IV
Gender: Female
Species/Racial Origin: Rockman
Social Class: Soldier, Commoner
Language: Vrachos Tribe, Basic Galactic
Family: Mother, father, brothers, sisters, knows a few people on Vrachos IV but nothing special.

Physical Description

Height: 2.7 metres
Weight: Average
Hair: Patches of short green moss on head
Eyes: Glowing red
Limb Dexterity: Right
Physical Description: Made up of grey rocks. Some symbols have been carved into her chest which are the equivalent of tattoos one gets when they don't actually read what the symbols mean because they look cool. Her left hand has been replaced with glowing blue crystals.
Equipment: Wears a non-protective pink vest and pants and a pink glove for her left hand. Carries a sharpened stone club on her back.

Personality/Attributes

Personality: Rather brutish, gets excited by combat or prospects of combat. She reluctant to help those who are not Rocks but when it comes to a fight, she'll never betray her team; mostly because they led her into a fight.
Skills: Apart from hitting things really hard, she can grow crystals from her left hand and throw them. They're about as effective as rocks being thrown by a Rockman. So they hurt. A lot.
Favourites/Likes: Hitting things. Throwing things. Killing things that fight back.
Most Hated/Dislikes: Non-Rockmen. Finds them repugnant as typical Rockman behaviour. Killing things that don't fight back - no point.
Goals/Ambitions: To become the Pirate King and find One Piece! Actually, she wants to find the members of the Grand Inquisition who betrayed her and fight them to the death.
Strengths: She's really strong?
Weaknesses: Doesn't think plans through in combat and hardly ever considers a tactical withdrawal or retreat from the fray. Her crystalline powers also require a steady diet of special crystals which are frequently consumed by Crystalmen.
Fears: Galactic Peace. The Grand Inquisition finishing the job of killing her before she's exacted revenge.
Hobbies/Interests: Hitting things and practising to hit things.
Regular Routine: Wakes up, has a meal of various rock types, checks weapons, works out, has lunch, more exercise, dinner, exercise and passing out on the floor to wake up again the next morning. Except she works on a different part of her routine each day. Note there's nothing in it about plotting revenge or even finding out where her targets of revenge are. She believes it'll happen eventually.
Philosophy of Life: If you can fight, fight to win. Otherwise, don't fight and support those who do, weakling.
Attitude Toward Death: It comes for everyone. But not today.
Religion: The only religion allowed on Vrachos IV.
Fetishes/Strange Behaviours: She secretly admires the Slug and Mantis forms.
Education: Rock Religious education, and of course an extensive workout program from Rubitite Rock's Big Rock Gym
Place of Residence: Starship quarters, with more rock and crystalline decorations.
Occupation: Mercenary
Place of Work: Wherever the main cast will be working at.
Past Occupations: Former bodyguard for a Grand Inquisition excavation team

Skill Sheet

This might be the best/awesome part of the character or the worst.

Intelligence: 2 (+5) (She knows the basics of life and how not to hurt herself when swinging heavy things)
Wisdom: 2 (+5) (If you shout loud enough she might remember not to get too involved in a fight)
Charisma: 1 (+5) (Her fists tend to do the negotiations)
Dexterity: 5 (+5) (She needs some precision when throwing rocks at people)
Strength: 10 (+5) (Laying down the smackdown)
Constitution: 10 (+5) (She's a Rockman. They're built tough)

In summary, Melia used to be a bodyguard for the Grand Inquisition of Vrachos IV, then during a mission involving Crystal artefacts, she found something she shouldn't have and was left to die on a desolate rock. She spent years on the planet, sustaining herself with crystals she found in a cave before finding her way off and into space with revenge on her mind.
Naturally, to pay the bills and to sustain her special diet of crystals, she became a soldier of fortune. If you have a problem and you need someone of brutish strength to solve it, you may call upon... Melia! *cue mix of A-Team and Rockman combat theme*

This sounds hella fun. One question though: What's the opinion on swearing in the actual thing? Don't care what, what just wondering so I don't offend anyone.

Anyway, I noticed we didn't have any repair crew, so here goes.

Basics

Name (& pronunciation): Weapons Unit 5327. Given name Arsenal (AR-SEN-UL).
Age: 342
Place of Birth: Constructed in Engi Creation Sector 17
Gender: None (responds to any pronouns)
Species/Racial Origin: Engi (no duh)
Social Class/Community Status: Traded between pirate ships for 72 years. Started as little more than a repair slave but slowly climbed the ranks to weapons specialist, weapons master, and then weapon lord. Now regarded as one of the best specialists in the galaxy.
Language: Has a translator chip in his throat, can speak any language in known existence
Family/Friends/Pets/Etc: Building grounds were strafed by pirates after he was stolen, so anything that could be considered "family" died. Due to his abrasive personality, no friends to speak of. He had a pet attack drone, but it was sold to buy a glaive beam.

Physical Description

Height: 6' 3" (1.9 meters)
Weight: 264 lbs (120 kg)
Hair: None
Eye: Red (the pirates tinkered with it because they thought it would look cooler)
Limb Dexterity: No limb preference
Detailed Physical Description: Arsenal is tall and very heavily built, created to take a lot of hits. His exterior is darker than usual due to repeated burns when his system was damaged. There are 746 tally marks covering his left arm: one for every time he was killed and cloned back again. There are 163 on his right arm: one for every time he was traded between ships. He is run down, jaded, and has arms blackened with marks of the dark times in his life.
Typical clothing/equipment: Due to his mechanical nature, Arsenal does not wear clothing. This grosses some of his companions out. Arsenal doesn't give a [message redacted]. He carries nothing more than a multitool for weapon repair and a pocket beam for self-defense.
Personality/Attributes

Personality/Attitude: Arsenal is a sarcastic and jaded Engi with serious antisocial tendencies. He doesn't like anything or anyone that isn't his weaponry, and hates universally. Even the kindest residents of the galaxy find him hard to stomach. Skills/Talents: As before stated, Arsenal has a spectacular mastery of weapons, as well as very fast repair skills.
Favourites/Likes: weapons, being alone
Most Hated/Dislikes: Life-forms, getting ioned
Goals/Ambitions: To live continuously for over a year and retire in peace to tinker with building his ultimate five-hull damage work-in-progress weapon: the scythe beam.
Strengths: weapon skills, quick thinking, repair
Weaknesses: combat, making friends.
Fears: after 392 years of piracy and combat, nothing can scare arsenal anymore
Hobbies/Interests: tinkering with new weapons, basking in hatred
Regular Routine: power up, hate everything, charge up, hate everything, tinker, hate everything, go to sleep.
Philosophy of Life: Life is pain. Make sure your enemies' lives are even more painful. By killing them. With ship-destroying weaponry.
Attitude Toward Death: It is cold and impermanent. He has experienced it and been cloned back so many times that it bores him.
Religion/Beliefs: There is no god.
Fetishes/Strange Behaviors: none.
Education/Special Training: Was never officially educated, but downloads the stores of every ship his pirates conquer to expand his knowledge base.
Place/Type of Residence: Wherever the pirate who have him live.
Occupation: Weapon God.
Place of Work: Pirate Fleet 237 in the Olympus cruiser.
Past Occupations: Repair Slave, Weapons Assistant, Weapons Specialist, Weapons Master, Weapons Lord.

Skill Sheet

Distribute 30 skill points between the following

Intelligence: 8 (+5 Base)
His life in the fleets has made him a quick thinker and great problem solver.
Wisdom: 8 (+5 Base)
His extensive data stores allow him to think through almost anything
Charisma: 0 (+5 Base)
Universal hatred doesn't make many friends.
Dexterity: 6 (+5 Base)
Weapon repair requires quick hands.
Strength: 3 (+5 Base)
As a weapons specialist Arsenal never learned much heavy lifting.
Constitution: 5 (+5 Base)
Over the years Arsenal learned to take some hits.

Can't wait to start this!
