"I was originally from Mistral, and I attended Haven Academy until the end of my third year. If not for a certain...incident, I would probably still be in Haven with my old team. I guess, if I couldn't have gotten into Beacon, I'd still be in Haven. However...let's just say things were awkward back then, and I do not wish to elaborate any further on why."
Question for you: do you prefer creating characters over RPing with the one(s) you currently have?
« on: March 23, 2017, 09:11:36 AM »
If I respond with all my characters I'll fill the whole page, so I'll choose from my cast. If you don't hear from them, assume they're off on something or can't be bothered. "Oh, sport? Does e-sports count? Because that would definitely be my favourite. If not, then, well, um...I'd say netball. But please say e-sports counts!""I don't really do much sport. Much prefer to spend my time in the gym, better way to build up muscles in my opinion. However, I have to say, rugby seems VERY attractive. A legal way to knock people's heads into the ground? My kind of sport. Otherwise...something that builds up endurance/muscles will do."
Currently my preferred sports are swimming and badminton, both of which aren't major sports where I'm studying (Scotland...Rugby/Hockey/Cricket are the 3 main ones). I would love to actually do E-sports as a career, but those who do are INSANE. Have you seen their APM (actions per minute?)
Question for Diana: If you didn't go to Beacon, which other academy would you go to and why?

Going to make some decisions here. I'll wait for a couple more options before making my pick, I think.

Good to know, I always think mods ask for more details so that's the reason I included it. Don't suppose it's too late to change that to "assault rifle rounds" and "pistol rounds"?
Edit: Changed anyway.

Holy Mother of Christ on a stick. Definitely AE rounds.
I'm wondering, do we absolutely need to specify what caliber the gun uses when describing the weapon? Because so far this is the most trouble I've had with a weapon profile. I'd prefer to maybe keep it a bit simpler and remove the caliber, but I'm not sure if that would pass.

Added "charges" system to Semblance to act as cooldown.
Rewrote small amount of history to match up with further edits, like:
Complete rework of weaponry
Removal of any irrelevant information
Clarification of Semblance (Yes, it appears in the chamber, no reloading required)

Well, we've posted on the Team List. Now what? I'm going to assume JJB's gonna start the thread off with his usual Oberon overview?

XD (whole site turns into nuclear bomb)

Are you authorised to put our new team up on the Team List, or do you have to wait for Kallot to do it?
« on: March 18, 2017, 06:20:07 PM »
Good ol' Nathan. Thanks for the correction

I found a shade of white on the internet by the name of whitesmoke with the code of #F5F5F5. It isn't exactly white, but most people won't know the difference. Just go with it and call our color Stark White or something?
Some kind of challenging mission suitable for 4th years. We don't have to ask for Oberon, I'm assuming, because you've been the DM before?

"I personally don't care much for what people call 'modern art' these days, although I suppose everyone has their own opinion. Bits and bobs of random color, materials and whatever the artist can lay their hands on, really. I much prefer 'art' in the old sense of the term, where you can actually see the complex design of the painting or picture, layers of colour over each other, multiple lines criss-crossing to form the perfect sketch."
"U-um, contemporary art? I'm not really sure what you mean...Like one of those wonky-looking sculptures that everyone seems to be going on about? Uh...they're....interesting, I guess? I'm sorry, I don't really know what to say...Can I go back to playing now?"
"Contemporary art? That utter rubbish? Where you throw a shoe on the ground and suddenly you're swimming in a million Lien? You've got to be ****ing kidding me! Can't believe anyone with half the brain of a mouse even wastes their time looking at the stuff! I mean, it's string wrapped around nails! There isn't even a pattern to it! What, was the artist smashed when they made this?"
"I don't really mind it, as long as people appreciate art. The calligraphy I draw attracts strange looks sometimes when people walk by, as it is a complete strange language, but it does help improve my Semblance. Can't say anyone else can claim art helps their fighting. I don't think I'll be doing any of that contemporary art any time soon though...Maybe I might give it a go after Beacon."
Games? Oh boy. For the past few years, my opinion on games has vastly differentiated, but I've mostly stuck to F2P games, only buying one or two that cost money. My favourite game probably has to be Starcraft 2, something you have to have heard of, since you use Battle.net. It's a real-time strategy game that has you building and controlling a sci-fi army, and it actually helps your reflexes, I reckon. TF2 has to take a close second (I spent over 700 hours on that game) but I'm sad to see Overwatch "overtake" it. Not to say Overwatch is a bad game, quite the opposite. (Hog and Ana ftw) Oh, and laugh at me all you want, but Pokemon Sun is definitely third. The way they seamlessly changed the format the game had been running on for 20 years with nary a complaint is absolute genius.
Well, another question. Favourite sport for both of you? (And yes, I'll count hunting Grimm as an answer for Diana)

Some sort of white from House Stark, from Game of Thrones maybe. Or grey, because stark normally invokes a bleak color.
I know Oberon and Savas have met before, and you mentioned Ribeiro knowing Savas. Kei hails from Mistral, and Acero Atlas, so this would make the other pair interesting to act out.
For the initiation itself, I personally feel that a FFA wouldn't exactly work if we were trying to introduce ourselves to each other, since all we would be doing is combat. Perhaps, being 4th years, we could be assigned a mission (Search-and-Destroy/Rescue or something of the sort) right off the bat, instead of having to go through initiation tests. However, that "mission" would act as our unorthodox initiation.
If our other members disagree with me, though, I am perfectly fine with going along. It saves us the time of needing a DM, apart from the beginning, because simple fighting between each other does not require such a member.
« on: March 17, 2017, 09:12:34 AM »
Well, the consensus is that Savas is leader of Team SARK, which is convenient for the leader's initials as well. I assume that we don't really need a DM, as JJB does that on a daily basis and can do that for us?
Otherwise I think we are good to go for initiation! Oh, and maybe get registered on the Team List?
« on: March 16, 2017, 04:24:22 PM »
My vote is for Savas. Sorry Acero, but I feel Savas has been through more stuff than the rest of the team. Not putting Kei up because he simply isn't suited for the role. (Totally not currying favour here... jk)
