Right, hello and welcome to RWBYrpg! It's always nice to see new people on the board. It looks like you've got a pretty clear idea of who you want your character to be, but she's going to need to be refined before she can be approved.

Firstly, pop over here and take a look at the character template. You're gonna want to copy that and use it as the basis for your profile. Please, really do that. It's part of the character submission requirements.

Secondarily, two quick pieces of advice for Chara:

- If you want her to be a student, she's gonna need to have some degree of combat capability if she's going to get into any of the hunter's academies. If you want her to be a civilian, then a lack of combat training is expected - but the hunter's academies is where most of the roleplay action is.

- You're going to want to flesh out her profile a little more as well. Don't be afraid to go into detail! We like detail here, and length really isn't an issue.

Also, are you referencing Undertale?

Right, I left this up for a week in case anybody else wanted to sign up, but it looks like everyone who's interested is already interested.

Party participants have been edited into the original post. I'll reach out to y'all on discord soon, and throw up a starter post sometime in a few days. Keep an eye out!

All your edits look good! I appreciate the attention to detail and elaboration in his story. The added detail on his weaponry and the ability to split it into two seems pretty neat. I've got two more notes 'bout your character and then you'll have my +1.

Combat Behavior: I just want to bring your attention to a portion of the character creation rules in theappearance section that limits the flight capabilities of OCs with wings - gliding's just fine, but prolonged flying is impossible due to the sheer weight of the human body. There's a few ways around that though (flying character of my own), and that's usually through the use of his semblance and Dust. If you throw in a sentence about using the updrafts from his pyrokinesis (I think you've mentioned this) and wind dust use to stay aloft, that's good enough for me.

High agility is fine, especially if he's been training so long and is technically something of a prodigy. But he's still a big boiTM who puts a lot of power into his swings, and a first-year hunter student. If his increased agility and speed basically come from... high-focused technique and adrenaline and it isn't constant, then we're good.

Thanks for your patience with everything, especially all the edits.

Are you brave, strong, and seeking adventure? Do you wish to prove yourself as the prodigal hunter of you generation? Or are you simply exceedingly poor?

Then I may have the MISSION. FOR. YOU!

Recently, one of the rarest and most elusive Grimm on record - the elusive AMALTHEA - has been spotted on the outer edges of the former settlement, Mountain Glenn. This particular is notable for the particular specimen embedded in its back - an ANCIENT, IMPORTANT, and EXTREMELY COLLECTIBLE sword! I desire this piece for my PRIVATE collection, and will pay handsomely FOR ITS RETRIEVAL! I don't care about your age, skill level as long as the sword is in PRISTINE CONDITION!

I'm seeking a team of approximately three students, perhaps with a professional hunter escort, in order to retrieve the sword. If you care to apply for the job, simply reach out to me at 555-555-5555. The monetary reward will be approximately 100,00 lien per student.

I look forwards to hearing from interested individuals soon!

Sincerely Yours,
Mr. Mallard.

"...Right, with that out of the way, here's what we're dealing with: an Amalthea actually has been spotted on the outskirts of Mountain Glenn. For those of you unaware of the Grimm's reputation, it's a harbringer. Whenever one of those shows up somewhere, some sort of natural disaster will usually hit the area within seventy-two hours of it's initial sighting."

"Assistant Headmistress Printempts wants eyes on the ground, tracking it down and maybe taking care of it, best-case scenario. We see an Amalthea approximately twice a decade, and never in the same place. If you want a chance at making history, then I suggest accepting this invite ASAP. If you're signing up, pack enough for a few weeks of wilderness survival. We don't know how long we'll be out there."

"The monetary reward for that sword or whatever is just a nice bonus. Stupid student debt..."

Welcome to the plot signups for Historical Hearsay, a PC v. Grimm thread, aimed around tracking and (eventually) hunting down a new grimm of original design known as the Amalthea, soon coming to a Grimm catalogue near you. The thread will be written choose-your-own-adventure-kinda style with the stipulation there's a full chance that will change, depending on how the thread progresses. The theme is mystery, and your OC will be tracking the Amalthea through dangerous, generally-uncharted wilderness.

Moreso than anything, this is a thread that I want to be a story for interested participants. There's an equal chance you'll succeed or fail the mission, though I'll do my best to nudge you towards the former - and you may end up a happy medium. However, it's also dangerous. The Amalthea is a mysterious grimm by in-universe standards, with much of the information surrounding it based around rumor and legend.

Basically, you're going to be facing some unique stuff.

I'll be reaching out to those who sign up to ask about something you want to accomplish in this thread for your character (within reason, you're not going to get an auto-win), whether it's a emotional realization or simply something that'll let them get a cool scar. You'll be welcome to change this at any given time, as well.

I'm opening up slots for three poeple, because that feels like a good number to hope for given the current activity levels of the board. If more are interested, I'll open it up to four. Characters will be chaperoned by Malina Nahualli-Roth, who's been generously loaned to me by Dr. Gustave because I didn't feel like creating an entire staff character.

Slots are listed below, and they'll be updated accordingly. Please tell me the name of the character you want to enter, and link their profile:
1. Diana Farran
2. Lucas Meridiem
3. Isabella Aozora

If you've got any questions, feel free to DM me here or on the Discord. Preferably the Discord, I'm way more responsive there. Before you sign up, it's appreciated if you know you'll be able to post consistently, though I'm not in a rush to write this.

Overall, thanks for reading, and happy hunting!

Hunter's ramblings must be growing on her, because Prism finds herself smiling for no particular reason as she crosses the room to the sink. She's an pessimistic optimist on the best of days, striving towards goals she knows she may never truly reach. But with Hunter-

There's something about the professor's energy that near-infectious, putting something resembling a skip in her step and a sway in her sashay as she starts running hot water and reaching for the dishsoap. "Life-threatening, risky, and relatively safe impulses. Cleaning up for the first is difficult. Don't do stuff without at least checking in with your partner about it first, because there's a risk they'll brain you." She parrots back, including her new mentor's unspoken lesson.

...a quiet humming of a tuneless song emanates from the kitchen as she begins to scrub with mechanical efficiency, low enough that she can still pick up anything else he says. "What's next?"

Juno Vert and Prism Skylark had had exactly two interactions. The first incident took place at a distance, where she watched him throw her teammate through a tree. The second instance had been strictly coincidence, where she'd willingly taught him one of her few precious pincer techniques - her aura blade. He'd picked it up in moments, when it'd taken her a month to master.

Wandering onto the range to practice, and watching his attack just... fizzle out? There was something concerning satisfying in the vindication that provided her.

At the same time... she could admire that. He was trying just as hard as her to improve, when most of his training had come from her amateur teaching capabilities. It'd been just one lesson before they parted ways. It couldn't hurt to... try again.

Leaning on the doorway to the training range, she calls out. "...You... doing okay there, Vert? If you stare at that target any more intensely it might burst into flames, and I'm pretty sure that's what your sword is for."

Well, this character has been waiting in approval limbo for a good while, so it might be pointless to comment - but your last time active on the board was about a week and a half ago. Aethon, if you're still around, shoot me a message and I'll do what I can to get this guy approved.

Now for the actual review bits:

Cyrus has a really strong profile, especially for a first character! There's just a couple notes to make, and most of them involve his history.

Appearance: We operate by a certain degree of real-world logic here. If you're gonna have a character that's 7 feet tall (and still growing, if he's only eighteen), that means he's gonna be suffering from some form of gigantism. Our official cutoff height for that is at 6'11" if I remember correctly - so if you knock him down an inch or two, that shouldn't be an issue. Or it can be if you want! Character flavoring is always neat.

History: This part's a quick bullet-point list of fixes to flesh out a few gaps I spotted in his history.

- If Cyrus ran away from home around age fourteen, how come his family didn't make any effort to go after him? They're all highly-skilled huntsmen who're ages older. They likely have the tracking capabilities and the resources to find him.

- How'd Cyrus fair in the streets as a fourteen year-old? Was he taken in by someone, what type of place would hire a fourteen year-old? Was it under the table? Just a sentence or to can help with that.

- How'd he convince the Irregulars to take on a fifteen year-old kid? If it's honestly just a lack of caring on the part of the band members, that's a reasonable explanation and unfortunately on-par for the music industry.

Combat: You probably read our three weakness rule, and you've hit on two out of three - the thing about his wings is that they'd be covered by aura. If you're looking for a third, he probably isn't the fastest fighter out there - the sheer power and brawn he brings would make it a struggle.

Overall, Cyrus has a lot of potential. If you're looking for someone to rp with, feel free to hit me up! I've got a angsty birdie of my own and I think their personalities could clash in a really interesting way. We've also got a discord where most of us hang out, so feel free to hop in and say hi sometime. The link is kicking around... somewhere...

"Only kinda!" Prism replies. "I lucked out - my team's fantastic, even if my initial isn't the one at the start of the name."

The faunus temporarily wobbles with the downbeat of his wings but by the third gust the wind seems to blow right past her. As she huffs off his reply, there's a sudden surge of air around the two and Prism catches it - soaring in front of him briefly, before turning around to face him midair as her wings reorient themselves. "Don't worry about it! Controlling air currents is like- literally, my semblance. You can't help the wind."

Hey y'all - it's been a hot second since I've posted on site, but I'm starting to get back into the swing of things and I want to try my hand at running a plot thread again. Is there anything that y'all would be interested in playing in particular? Let me know!

Prism's grin gets wider as he corkscrews away. Her own wings flicker once or twice in the nonexistent breeze, before they snap open without any ceremony. There's half a second of blinding iridescence as the strong sunlight hits them, before they snap - and become a near-invisible blur behind the woman's back.

She follows Glas' gentle slop as the two begin to even out over the lake below. The invisible bubble of wind surrounding them follows their descent, but the faunus is no longer literally steaming out of concentration. "Proud leader of Team Casanova here! Howsabout yourself?"

Sorry for the wait! You've got a cool character here, and I spot no immediate issues. +1 from me.

The dumbfounded look on her new companion's would normally make Prism stifle a giggle, if it weren't for the severity of the situation. It almost seems like he forgot about the ground.

...though Prism can't really blame him. That's definitely possible to do up here. She's about to open her mouth to reply before something new encompasses her view.

Wings. Massive ones, dwarfing her modest 12 foot feather appendages - already oversized on a body that doesn't even break five feet. Nearly the same color as the sky, if it weren't for the natural glow of-

Aura. It was his semblance!

Her dumbfounded stare as he readjusted in the air is replaced by a massive grin, her own wings extending to their full length to slow her to the same speed. "I never expected to meet another! Name's Prism, feeling's the same! Want to take this conversation upright?"

In agreement with Reaper here- more detail in the combat session. We still have a rule about 2-3 weaknesses, and she currently only has one. Maybe something about being a short-range fighter, and having difficulty against long-range enemies?

"You flew?" Prism asks, her tone boarding on incredulous. The statement is enough to make her double-take again, glancing up past her feet. Nothing marred the clear blue sky beyond some wispy clouds. No drop ship, no jet pack, no obvious dust enhancements - he didn't even seem to have a weapon on him!

"I'm doing fine! I'm a good judge of where the oxygen limit is by now. But listen-" she adds, shooting him a matching look of concern. "Are you going to be okay? That lake's getting close, and I'm not sure I could carry you."
