    Re: Intense Struggle! (2 Slots remaining)

    Name: Trickster

    Gender: Male

    Font color: This one (#004000)

    Race: Human in appearance, but demonic spirits stir within him.

    Weapon: His signature 'weapons,' if you would call them that, are his gloves (not shown in the description) that allow him to amplify his fire magicks to extreme levels (e.g. making a giant flamethrower from his arm). He can do large spells without them, but they will overall lower his health.

    Abilities: Trickster is gifted in the fire-augmented magicks, but aside from that he cannot do much else. He is quite fast and can levitate up to about ten feet, and a little more if he uses fire like rocket-boots. Overall, he has low defense and health, but in battle his other abilities usually make up for it.

    Description:

    Trickster wears a grey-green jacket and black fingerless gloves most all of the time, and baggy orange pants as well. He has a bit of a mixbreed of a fedora and a tophat that he barely ever removes. He has a view on the world similar to most other human males at his age, a careless one with little care for the feelings and overall views of other people. He has a low tolerance and a high temper. He is not very secretive about his ablities and is quite adamant with them, in fact.

    Biography: Born of the very fire and flame that he can control, Trickster was thrust straight from birth into a world that was essentially trying to kill him, as the demonic spirits that birthed him did not want any sort of human in their ring cast him out unto the Earth. He was raised by an elderly family, but he was soon orphaned again by old age. At this time he was of about 13 years, and had a good grasp on reality. He soon found his powers when he discovered the dreadful, street-life secrets behind the big cities that enveloped them. He first discovered them when he was attacked, and mugged, and soon feeling as an outcast of society removed himself to the forested outskirts of the city where he stayed for years upon years before once again revealing himself to society. He was overtaken by a band of mysterious, sentient machines and brought to the Monitor.

    Re: Intense Struggle! (2 Slots remaining)

    I'd like to give this a go but I'm not too sure, I'm a pretty bad writer and I have a history of abandoning my projects so maybe it would be better to let someone else play. I'll think about it a bit.

    Trickster is approved. That leaves one slot; if it's not filled in the next two days, I'll just put Cross in.

    Also: Aryogaton still needs to repost Aegis' info.

    I'm making one, but I don't mind if someone else wishes to claim the last spot. There'll probably be more opportunities to join one of these later, anyway.
    ...But it's probably just me.

    Re: Intense Struggle! (1 Slot remaining)

    Name: Aph
    Gender: Female
    Race: Nymph
    Nymphs are not naturally occurring creatures. They are created via magic rituals. They fall in love with everyone that they meet, but upon leaving that person's side the love fades almost instantly. They are curious and will, if not currently occupied by being in love with someone wander off somewhere. They are not naturally combatative as they fall in love even with those that would do them harm.

    Colour: This seems quite apt (fourth up from the bottom on the far right).
    Weapon: Aph uses a sword.
    Abilities: Being a creation of magic Aph has some minor magical abilities, such as zapping an enemy with a small bolt of lightning and moving small objects with her mind. Basic magic. The kind stuff they teach you on your first day, that kind of stuff. She could probably get better if she studied it. She mainly attacks with her sword. If she goes into a rage that's when she is at her most deadly.

    Description:

    Aph is the same size as an average human, with light pink skin. She floats slightly off the ground. She has pointed ears and two hook-shaped horn things on her head. The tentacle looking things behind her are her hair (she has more than just four strands; the drawing was just to suggest the general shape and length of it). It floats out behind her.
    Aph is like the rest of the nymphs in that she falls in love with everyone she meets, but the sheer amount of love she feels for people is far more than that of any other Nymph. It is almost overwhelming. When the love she feels for someone isn't returned she becomes angry and eventually psychotic.

    Background: She was created by a lonely and rather inept magician. He attempted to alter the ritual so that she would not love others and that her love for him would be permanent. However he made a mess of it and caused her to become almost psychotic over the people she loves. At first everything was fine, but soon Aph started demanding more and more affirmation from the wizard. He was unable to satisfy her that he really loved her as much as she wanted and she held him captive trying to force him to love her more. Eventually unable to be loved as much as she wanted, she killed the wizard in a rage. She ended up living on the streets where she learned to defend herself. One day as she was swooning over the latest love of her life; some guy passing by, she vanished and reappeared somewhere else...

    Note: Aph is NOT going to be all about sex and innuendo. She feels LOVE for everyone she meets, not LUST.

    This sound okay?

    Re: Intense Struggle! (Full - Starting soon)

    Approved! We're full now.

    I'll start it officially in a bit - I'm still deciding where to set the first round, but I should be able to come up with something.

    It would be nice if Aryogaton could repost Aegis' info before things get officially started, otherwise I'll do it myself.

    Color: Red

    Inventory: Shapeshifting gauntlets (referred to as simply 'gauntlets' from this point on)

    Abilities: His weapons are of the same type as Aeon's adaptive tool in GBI, only they take the form of a pair of large gauntlets. Instead of changing into any shape he wants, they have pre-programmed weapons built-in that can be activated with very little mental input (unlike Aeon's weapon that changes into any shape, as long as he keeps his concentration). Furthermore, unlike Aeon's weapon, they store their mass instead of convert it from energy, and are thus very heavy and slow Aegis down quite a bit.

    Description: A perpetual grin. A grip stronger than iron. A nice guy, if you get past his overzealous sense of humor. Arrogant, pompous, obnoxiously loud and confident. Impulsive, reactive, and exceedingly unprudent. Of average intelligence but prefers not to use it. His moral status is frustratingly vague. Either you love 'im or you hate 'im. Ridiculously top-heavy and unnaturally strong--one finger has the strength of a man's arm. When he laughs, the entire room shakes. All these phrases and more describe Aegis Cupris.

    Biography: He comes from the same village as Aeon Ferrous (from GBI). He alone serves as the police department for the entire village, and he takes the job by the throat, wrings it three full revolutions, and snaps it like a toothpick. He knows everyone in the village as both a friend and a jackass.
    Another profile that will be relevant:

    Descriptionne of those shirts that look like two worn at the same time but not, grey and dark blue for the main shirt + short sleeve bit and long sleeve bit respectively, blue cargo trousers and a full face mask with a :3 face painted on it.
    Biography: Ok, there was this guy see who was a stage magician by trade, a conjuror to be specific, but lost everything except his talents when he found a blank, white, mask to wear for his act. Although the mask increased his talent well beyond any mortal limit, he became unable to control his talent and spent years practising to get his control of it to point it is today.and the :3 face? he painted it on so he wouldn't scare his audience while performing.
    Bae will be disguised as Cabaret (from GB2) as the game starts. Of course, the other combatants won't know this - they'll have to somehow discover it on their own.

    I've got a setting in mind now, so I'll start things off soon.

    Re: Intense Struggle! (Full - Starting soon)

    Eight beings awoke in separate glass chambers. Through the glass, they could see a figure in the middle of the room; it sat at a chair, in the midst of several complex-looking machines.

    "Greetings. I am known as the Monitor," said the figure. "I have brought you here for a simple purpose: To battle each other. I am very interested in the data such a battle will produce."

    The shadowy Monitor pressed some buttons, and a spotlight illuminated the first glass booth.

    "Participant number one goes by Larus Mutabilis, though that is not his real name. He is an outlaw with the ability to make his body as light as mist, or as hard as stone. Or anywhere in between."

    More buttons were pressed, and the spotlight moved to the second booth.

    "Participant number two, Aegis Cupris. You may notice the heavy-looking gauntlets he is wearing; he can change those into a number of weapons to adapt to a variety of situations. I've seen a friend of his advance quite far in a similar contest. It will be interesting to see if Aegis will prove himself to be as capable."

    More buttons, and the third booth lit up.

    "Participant number three, Sister Clara Jungfrau. Her appearance may surprise you - it is the result of a ritual undergone by priestesses of her world. She is still as devoted to her cause as ever."

    The light moved to the fourth booth.

    "Participant number four is known as 'B', though he may answer to 'Ben' as well. He has the ability to change into any kind of beast, even those that do not exist in his world."

    The fifth booth lit up.

    "Now we have participant number 5, D'Neya. 'She' is, in fact, a Twilight Sprite - a personification of a concept. I could give a detailed explanation, but I do not have that much time. Suffice to say that she is considerably more dangerous than she appears."

    The sixth booth lit up next.

    "Participant number 6, the masked magician Cabaret. He is capable of producing unusual weaponry from nowhere, and wielding it rather effectively."

    Behind the mask, Bae smirked. This unassuming form would be perfect for catching the others off guard. He looked forward to the reward the Monitor had promised him should he win.

    The light shifted to the seventh booth.

    "Participant number 7, Trickster. He wields fire magic, and quite well. I imagine by his name that he also has a few other tricks up his sleeve..."

    And finally, the light settled on the eighth booth.

    "Participant number 8, the nymph Aph. She falls in love quiet easily... and can be very implacable if it is not returned. Note also the sword she is carrying."

    The spotlight shut off. The Monitor pressed more buttons as he continued to speak.

    "That should be sufficient information on your competition. Now, I will send you to the first arena. Once one of you has fallen in battle, the rest shall be retrieved and I shall send you to the next round. This will continue until only one of you is victorious."

    The Monitor pressed one final button, and the glass booths filled with light, then emptied. The combatants found themselves in an abandoned military base, with bodies strewn about everywhere.

    The Monitor's voice spoke once more.

    "This base was the site of a large-scale battle. There were no survivors, on either side. However, the commander of this base had it filled with lethal traps, many of which are still active. You will have to contend with the traps as well as your competitors, or perhaps find a way to use them to your advantage."

    "That is all. The first round has begun!"

    This is what I get for not calling dibs, I guess. Ixcalibur posted and the tournament started while I was typing.

    Uh, I'ma post this anyway. Maybe I can use it in another one or something.

    Re: Intense Struggle! (Round 1 - The Abandoned Base)

    Holy fuck, you have to make an exception for that.

    Working on my part now, but I will wait for someone else to do something first so I can get a prime example.

    Re: Intense Struggle! (Round 1 - The Abandoned Base)

    B found himself alone. Wait, somebody was nearby, but not in direct view. Probably an adjacent room. Around the area were bodies. A lot of them. B hadn't seen so many since C had arrived at the lab. Speaking of labs, he appeared to be in a laboratory himself. A weapons lab, specifically. It looks like all sorts of gadgets were once built here, offensive in nature, but there wasn't anything useful left.
    After noting where he was, Ben realized that he still had no idea where he was. A battle... back when the people who ran his home were still alive there was a person who was in charge of monitoring he and A, but that man had a name, and not just a job title. Plus the voice was different. It mentioned that he was in a battle. And that he would be moved to the new round once one had 'fallen in battle'. He wanted to be hopeful, and think that just meant if one was knocked out... but from the corpses in the area, and the fact that only one would remain in the end, said otherwise.
    His brother and sister weren't here. Neither was Hal.
    B was alone, and didn't know if he could find somebody to trust that he's supposed to fight.
    B was scared.

    Re: Intense Struggle! (Round 1 - The Abandoned Base)

    Ugh, damn...

    Trickster slowly rose from the cold, hard concrete and studied his surroundings as his senses slowly trickled back to him. There was blood, and bodies were scattered around; around him stood 7 mysterious figures that he just then remembered the identities of... The memories of the Monitor and being trapped inside that bubble thing. He tried to remember something before it but couldn't muster... odd.

    He realized that he had been standing there for a good twenty seconds thinking about his previous experiences over the past few conscious minutes. Nobody around him seemed hostile at the current moment, but he knew very true to himself that looks could be decieving, decieving in such a way to make someone old enough to be a great grandfather look as no more than a teenager. He tightened down his lucky hat, and protruded his gloves from the pockets in his flourescent orange jeans. For a split second he considered stripping his pants off; such a bright color was definately not unnoticable, and to get by in this helltrial free for all with his measley skill level, he would need to slip by near invisibly and let the others do the most work they could before coming after him. He slowly put on his gloves and started warming up a fireball... he had a bad feeling he was going to need it very soon.

    Re: Intense Struggle! (Round 1 - The Abandoned Base)



    Sister Clara bit her lip and idly straightened her wimple, slowly looking around the blasted courtyard she and most of the rest of the group had landed in. Most of her competitors didn't really phase her (you see a lot of things by the time you get to Clara's now-considerable age), but one in particular bothered her quite a lot. She hefted the large, leatherbound text she'd been reading from when she had been thrust into this asinine contest and scurried across the courtyard, adroitly stepping around pools of blood and disembodied limbs without giving them a second glance.

    As she passed the scruffy youth in the ridiculous clothes, she shot him a glance that pretty obviously said "I'm sure we'll have no need for THAT, young man."; her real destination, though, was the oddly-serene girl standing by a wall and staring vaguely at nothing. Sister Clara squatted on her haunches and put one hand on the poor girl's shoulder; the very idea of putting such a young girl in a place like this, much less for the reasons this Monitor character said he had... Oh, it just didn't bear thinking about.

    The nun smiled serenely; "Are you alright, child?"

    'Cabaret' watched this B child through one of the armoured windows, if it could get through it could jump the B child and end this round. But it had to be smart, it had to stop any attempts at escape, and that meant finding the rest of it's opponents. It turned away from the window and started to rummage through the pockets of a human in a white coat, finding alot of blood and a small notepad. Looking over the wad of wood compound and the various marks on it 'Cabaret' let it's feelings shine through, causing the mask to make a grin full of teeth.
