Name: Shepard
Appearance: (old-ass sheet... does not display knife)
A girl in a wheelchair. Has a knife. Pink nightgown and pink nightcap. Curly blonde hair. Cap has an eye on it that opens up when she sleeps. Puffy face, cute and moe. Small arms.
Personality: Gentle and spaced out.
Primary element: Darkness.
Ability/Weapon: Falls asleep and calls forth dream entities. Good dream entities take the form of sheep. Nightmare entities take the form of body parts.
Dreaming also warps surrounding space.
Sleeping has healing properties to herself and allies.
Has a knife. Physically weak though.
(Entity use examples:
Spoiler for Hiden:
*Carpet of tongues that slows foes.
*Jaws that latch onto foes.
*Sheep that put foes to sleep.
*A claw that does wide slashes.
*Several arms that wrap around a foe and restrain them.
*Arms that perform rapid punches.
*Eyes that emit blinding light/darkness
*Giant hand to block attacks
*A heart allies grab to heal themselves
*Legs that sprout from her chair and carry her places
)
Playstyle: Mage/summoner type character. Disorients foes and inflicts status conditions. Entites help protect her from attacks. Heals allies. Slow and frail though.
Low END (Though END can be rectified through protective and restorative skills). She is a wheelchair bound girl afterall.
Low INT. Can’t run and sleepy reaction times.
Low ATK. Her powers just aren’t tailored to damage.
High PRB. Hard to dodge when the place has been warped to her twisted dreams.
High ENR. Literally fighting in her sleep.

Simon and Finnley
Lightning Elemental
Resists Nature, Weak to Fire


Appearance/Personality: Simon is a simple bear with simple needs. He growls like a bear, he eats meat and fish like a bear, and he walks on four legs like a bear, but if he's attending a nice dinner party he might walk around on his two hind legs. He can't do it for very long and it's much more comfortable to walk on all fours, but Simon is very polite for a bear and so he tries to use good manners around guests. His left arm is a mechanical prosthetic, but Simon doesn't really like to talk about how he lost his bear arm, or how it got replaced with a rather spiffy metal arm. Perched atop his snout is a small pair of spectacles because Simon, despite being a clever bear, does not have the best eyesight in the world even by bear standards.

On his back is his best friend Finnley. He will gladly tell you that his full name is Finneus Tarche the Second, but he doesn't mind being called Finnley as it is shorter and more convenient to say in casual conversation. Finnley claims that he is a shark, even though he only appears to be a backpack in the shape of a shark, complete with a zipper mouth and button eyes. Finnley also claims that he is a scholar, scientist, and a true man of discovery, which can be at least halfway believed considering that he is a backpack capable of fluent speech. Finnley can even understand Simon, translating his grunts and roars for his less animalistic companions.

Oh. And here's a picture, if you're into that.


Playstyle: Base stats are fairly balanced, leaning towards a tanky bruiser. Accuracy is on the higher end for most attacks, thanks to Simon's glasses and Finnley's perfectionist tendencies, though Energy is on the low end, as Finnley's devices aren't very efficient, and bears do not have the greatest metabolism in the world. As for skills, they are split into two general categories. Simon's special attacks focus on locking down single targets, unleashing grizzly attacks that enemies will have a tough time bearing. Finnley's techniques, on the other hand, are more suited for dealing with crowds or helping Simon out in a pinch. Here are some examples for skills to give a general idea.

[Simon the Bear]
Bear Hug - Squeezes the target to deal damage and restrict enemy movement, improving the accuracy of allies who target the same enemy.
Overbearing - Rushes at an enemy, knocking them to the ground. The target's defense is reduced until Simon's next turn.
Grin and Bear It - Simon stands his ground. If attacked that turn, he makes a powerful counter, and survives at 1 HP if he would otherwise be KO'd.

[Finneus Tarche II]
Hammer Head - Dispenses a sturdy helmet for Simon to wear, slightly boosting defense and protecting Simon from disabling statuses (stun, silence, etc).
Tiger Shock - Fires an electrical bolt that bounces between enemies, with a chance of stunning or slowing those struck.
Great White - Fires an enormous beam of pure white energy, striking all enemies. Its wide range gives the attack impressive accuracy.

Despite being two very different creatures, Simon and Finnley are treated as one character, sharing the same turn and using the same stats. It wouldn't make much sense for a sentient talking backpack to be able to hop around on its own, now, would it?

Alright, guys. Thank you for the applications. However, I decided to extend the signup phase for about 3 to 4 days to give other people a chance. Until further notice, good luck!

Hello there! Unfortunately, I decided to skip the individual introductions. However, I have made my decisions, so take a seat and get ready to anticipate stuff.

Hence, our 10 lucky champions who will take on Mechanus are:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Bass-Sama,
Ashie,
Simon & Finley,
Camila & Jem,
Wynn & Aspus,
Jusuke,
Shepard,
Harold,
Boarfanger Man, and
Yellow Jack

Spoiler for Hiden:
Unfortunately, Max, sorry to say, but you're the one reject. While your character is good for a quick laugh, that's that. I forgot to mention that a character shouldn't be under-powered either, unless they had a growth curve that would rectify that much later on.

That being said, good luck, champions. I'll see you in the game.
Here. Join the Discord server to get up to speed with the game. Non-players can join too!

No need. Joining the Discord group is completely optional, though I'd appreciate it if you do. It's just there for the sake of convenience.
For now, we are just setting up the game. Thank you for signing up.

Alright folks. This waiting has gone on for long enough, so let's get this show on the road!

Spoiler for Hiden:
A few days had passed. Mechanus and his army have already left a mark on Tuberus. However, back at the military base, a team of soldiers appeared before General Y in the meeting room.
Soldier: We have found volunteers for the mission, General!
General Y: Good. Bring them in! I'll need to give them the briefing.

The soldiers left the area, making way for a group of characters. General Y was left in a state of shock and amazement before getting his senses together.
General Y: Good day, people! You are here today because you volunteered for an important mission. *points at a map on screen* The land of Tuberus has been attacked by one of our most wanted criminals: Mechanus. He had recently bested most of our army.
General Y: We have called you all here because you have the talent needed to put him to justice. His invasion was only recent, so we may have a chance of saving the land. Are we clear?

Before anyone could respond, the meeting was interrupted by rushing footsteps. The door opens, and a person clad in blue appeared. His most distinctive feature is a giant helmet shaped like a basin.
???: Sorry I'm late!
General Y: No matter. The team is all here now! Folks, this is your Mission Control, Hil. He has volunteered to help us. He claims to have frequenced Tuberus for quite a while, so his knowledge might prove useful.
Hil: Hi there. I have been given these thingamabobs to help you through the adventure. They said these can scan the environment or something!

Hil presented 10 devices resembling headsets onto the table. He had one left on hand, proceeding to attach it to one of the headphone shells on his head.
Hil: Go on. These are one-size-fits-all. I think my job is to feed you extra info based on data I obtain or something.
General Y: If we are all ready, meet me outside.


I hope you guys are okay with roleplaying. To make things more interesting, players are free to write out what the characters are up to/feeling/doing/thinking in the form of mini-scenes. The only condition is that it does not make absurd deviations from the game.
Also, please bold actions that will impact the game.

Boarfanger Man's Entry
« Reply #25 on: June 24, 2017, 08:29:11 AM »
Enter Boarfanger Man;
Spoiler for Hiden:
Hunter's Hub theme.
Spoiler for Hiden:
Boarfanger Man's Mood
Spoiler for Hiden:
Another wonderful day as usual. After being slammed around by Konchu while trying to quaff his Cold Drink in the desert, rammed by Bullfango while trying to drink his Potion and getting stun-locked by pellet shots, Boarfanger Man was on the verge of losing his temper and going completely berserk. After he had drowned his sorrows at the cafeteria table, Boarfanger Man noticed he had a very strange letter in his hand.

Spoiler for Hiden:
To "Boarfanger Man"
Congratulations! You have successfully been chosen to join the fight against the Mechanus Armada!
If this message was received by mistake, please throw this away and never remember it again!
If you would like to join our fight, please sign below.
Signed, Boarfanger Man.

In fine print, it says...
"Warning: As soon as you sign this contract, you will be upswinged by an unknown Greatsword Wielder with enough force to send you to our base of operations. We take no responsibilities for wounds suffered before, during or after the operation."

An awfully fishy letter. Boarfanger Man took a while to realize his name was already written on there...
...Or maybe he did it and forgot all about it.

Boarfanger Man looked behind him and noticed all too late that he was in the way of a greatsword's upswing.
SMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASH!
Boarfanger Man was sent a rather comically far distance...
...Boarfanger Man started wondering when he'd finally land...
...Any second now.

Foreign dimensions are not kind to those who don't pay for their flights.
After landing in an unknown area; one which Boarfanger Man can't seem to make out in his daze; Boarfanger Man stumbled along, this way and that, before collapsing ungracefully on the ground...

Spoiler for Hiden:
...Boarfanger Man tossed and turned in his sleep, twisted dreams invading his mind...

...Boarfanger Man woke up with a pounding headache.
The first thing he did was walk towards the meeting room.
After seeing all the strange characters that he assumed was going to be his party;
he could tell this hunt's going to be a real fun ride.

Cue theme;

Spoiler for Hiden:
A series of dull thuds echoed through the room as a towering mech made its way toward the table.

"Pah!  You'd better hope these things are waterproof."

The tanky shark's shark tank swiped one of the headsets off the table.  Wynn eyeballed the headset for a bit before rising to the top of the water, allowing Aspus to remove his harness.  The headset, harness, and shark connected, and Wynn sank back into the depths of his tank.  He observed the others in the party.

"What a sorry looking lot!  Don't you all worry, though.  The name's Wynn, and the lovely lady holding me is Aspus.  We're gonna be the ones who carry you all to victory."

Spoiler for Hiden:
EDIT: lol wrong video
Camila: Perhaps we should ask if they know where the invaders are coming from. If this is a recent invasion and they have not fully established themselves, maybe we can block any reinforce-

Jem: Yeah, perhaps we should get us surrounded. Don't ask that.

Camina: We don't lose anything by asking. Knowing is half of the battle.

Jem: And how much of the other the other half is making sure your officers send us as cannon fodder?

Camila: What should we ask first, then?

Jem: Ask them where is the toilet.

Camila: About the war.

Jem: They don't know a damn thing. That's why they are sendin' a bunch of freaks, we're their lab rats.  Their regular troops can't defeat Mechanus using their regular strategies so they wanna know how the enemy would react to diverse opponents as an experiment to find new weaknesses.

Camila: Either that or they are really desperate and just want to fight with anything they have.

Jem: Maybe. Let's focus on surviving, and keep your eyes open. If they wanna learn more, well... That's why we are here, after all.

Camila: So be it.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Unbeknownst to the others in the room, a puddle-like shadow quietly slips underneath the doorway and settles in. From it, a silhouette slowly emerges

The silhouette takes the form of a man before features and color set in, then strikes a dramatic pose as the last of the murky black substance evaporates off his skin. The now fully formed, clad in black ruffian takes a moment to straighten his hair, which can best be described as a pompadour in the shape of a serrated knife. One could cut themselves just looking at it.

"From nothingness I emerge, bringing death in its wake! I am Jusuke, the slayer of those unfit!

woke
Spoiler for Hiden:
There was a spot in the meeting room that, for a split second, no one looked at.
The next soldier to look at it suddenly saw a wheelchair bound girl clad in pink nightgown.
That would be how she'd get here.
A soldier tried to give her a headset.
It clipped through her.
Then disappeared.
She then said "cool" on the communication channel. So it must've worked out.

"Greetings.
I'm Shepard.
You're real people, right?
Dream denizens are nice and all, but they're pretty weird.
It's nice to meet normal people for a change."

*Yawn*

"Let me know if you need anythi..."

She fell asleep.

Disembodied hands are now petting anything with fur or strange hair.
