UPDATE: The official release date for the RPG is now postponed to June 25th for more time for the contest (And until I can learn to draw a map! ><). Though the RPG itself will be released on the 15th of May, to get a before plot line feel.
Put your entries here! Any entry not here will not count.
Current Round: 1, This is Me!
Round End date: May 20th
POLLS AND PROGRESS:
I am stuck on the title for the new RPG, so to entertain everyone who is waiting for R1 results I am going to put up a daily poll here, and post the progress on the RPG.
Poll #1 CLOSED
I am having trouble with the title for the RPG. Without any knowlage as to what it will be about I am putting up the cooler names I've thought of. The name that gets the most votes will be the title (Don't worry these are all fitting for the concept):
Now here is a random question, What is your favorite weapon out of these?
Poll Number 2:
What in the world is your guiding Virtue?
(I am just putting up a few)
Poll Number 3:
Best demerit ever:
-Kid randomly slapping another kid.
-Drinking chemicals in the science lab and surviving.
-Saying yolo 15 times in class for no apparent reason.
Poll Number 5:
Forgot this >M<
Poll Number 6:
One of the character classes that hasn't been explained yet is the trait. Before the release what do you think this is?
-A trait is the offspring of a human and a Virtue; that has the negative quality's of both, and a few of the good quality's.
-Duh. A trait is obviously like a Virtue, but doesn't have a positive significance! Why are you asking this Cure?
-I could care less until I know what it is. So. Meh.
Progress Report 1:
I started writing a brief description during Creative Writing Class, and it turned into a 7 page monster. And its not done. Thus I am revisiting the description, and modifying it. So the idea IS close to finalized.
I have decided on character classes though (But at the moment they aren't getting any description). Virtue, Hunter, Trait (Not sure about this but I have a prototype character for it), Civilian, Vice, Vice Root, Host Vice, Sandstroke. These will all be explained on later updates for it!
Progress Report 2:
I am working more on the classes, and the setting. Just so you know the city it takes place in will be created by me, and doesn't actually exist. Yup. It will be called Altruistic City; and its home to the Virtue CORE. The Virtue CORE is a company dedicated to the fighting of Vices. This will be explained later!
Progress Report 3:
This one will be a bit more detailed then the last ones. The idea for this came after hours of watching Soul Eater, listening to my Speech Teacher go on and on about Virtues, and drinking about 3 gallons of cranberry juice (Over the past few weeks I've drank about 3 of the industrial sized bottles, and 25 of the mini sized bottles. I looooove Cranberry juice~ It helps me think). So the basic core of the plot is that as long as there's been humans, Virtues and Vices have came along.
A Virtue is the best things about humanity, and the Vices are the worst. Both can dramatically change human society, though Vices can destroy it.
Over history there have been people descended from a Desert Tribe that left no record behind called the Sandstroke, that can Intertwine with Virtues, forging a partnership with them. In some societies Intertwining was considered the same thing as marriage, as Virtues appear human, but they never age. Those who Intertwine with Virtues are known as Hunters, and they dedicate their entire life to "Purifying" (More like neutralizing and taking over) Vices. Many Hunters ended up ruling large parts of the world (For the better. People like Louie the 14th, George Washington, and the Zhou Dynasty of China. All Hunters.)
During the Grecian Empire the first organization for Hunters formed, and was known as Areti Prynas (Αρετή Πυρήνας (I could only get modern Greek on translate)). The formation was to combat the stream of Vices created from Cultures that had been separate colliding. Every major world power had one, up to our (Mine at least. Don't worry when it was The British Empire you guys on the other side of the pond would've had one too.) own World Power America.
This takes us to the Virtue CORE.
It had been so long since the Sandstroke were a tribe that many roots were buried. Thus they search out young people with Guiding Virtues (Their main personality trait.) that were working with them, and had the ability to become Hunters. They then use subliminal messaging in their commercials (As they work like a corporation) to get them on the wrong bus, and into the city. Then they go and try to find help getting out from someone, and end up in the building, where they get a job, and start their lives as a Hunter.
Other Notes on this progress are: Its mainly the history. I am making a word document for my reference that way everything can remain aligned. Yep~ ^^ Tomorrow I'll talk about the villains.
Progress Report 4:
Ass promised today I am talking about the villains, known as Vices. These Vices were the embodiment of the worst of humanity, in a gaseous form. As cultures that had remained separate started to mix and interact more Vices were born than Virtues. As they could cause massive amounts of harm to humans, Intertwined Pairs started to hunt them. A Vice doesn't have a human form, but rather has to take over a human by laying its roots in it. A Vice Host can use a Vice's weapon form in combat, and is able to lay weaker vice roots in other humans. The most powerful Vice is Despair, followed up by: Regicide (Regicide also encompasses Infanticide, Homicide, Xenocide, and Genocide), Mistreatment, and Murderous.
Progress Report 5:
Gah! I forgot to post this yesterday! ><
Progress Report 6:
I finally have the description done, and I am releasing the RPG early! But no actual plot stuff will happen until the planned release date cause that's when the contest will end. Any character not apart of the contest can RP right off the bat. When it is released tomorrow at 7:25 am Eastern Time anyone may join with new characters. So I am hoping that there are some epic ideas ready!
