This could be your wriggling day, just as well as it could not be. It doesn't matter.
Tonight you and seven other young trolls will be playing a game. A game that'll change your lives forever.
A so called SGRUB.
Maybe you got the files sent to you by one of your friends. Maybe you were one of the trolls who helped program the game mechanics. But all of you happened to not be alone upon joining the chain.
Be it because you had a visitor, you were said visitor, or you just had a robber invading your hive, you were not alone. None of you were.
Unlike many other sessions that have surely come and gone before yours, you have a different challenge. Learning how to work as a team. Your natural troll instincts won't work well with that of course. You're a violent creature, you don't need help. But you have no choice.
In the Medium, you and the other players will find yourselves scattered across only four lands, in pairs. You either learn how to work with your partner, or keep him out of the way somehow.
Yep, yet another SGRUB chain. As if there weren't enough of those already out there. But as you've already noticed, this one has a new twist to it. Players have to go in pairs. For some reason or another, paradox space set this session up for that to happen. So trolls, the most violent, loner, and nasty race you can think of, will have to work together from the very beginning. Or not, who knows.
Because of that, we'll need to make a bit of planning before the RP actually starts, if only to settle who'll go in with who, and the order in the chain. I might end up making a separate IRC channel for that, I'm not sure. There's also a few specific spots that'll have to be filled, but I don't think there'll be much of a problem with that, not with the sheer ammount of fantrolls this fanbase's produced.
Anywho, let's settle a few rules here before anything else.
-No godmodding: this includes overpowered characters. Be reasonable with how you make your troll. Sollux could shoot huge laser beams out of his eyes, sure, but that always looked painful to me in the comics. Make sure your character is balanced. They can have a strong power, but if they do they also need something to balance that out so they're not too powerful.
-Stay active: I don't want a post every day, no, but I don't want people that'll join and then just disappear without a word after a week. If you're gonna have to stay away for a period of time, say so in a post here. If you stay unresponsive for too long, and doesn't even answer to PMs or anything you'll be cut off the RP. I don't know how much time will be necessary for that to happen, that's a worst-case-scenario, but I'm already telling you it can happen. If you think you can't keep up with the RP, quit instead of disapearifying away.
-Be nice: since in this RP we'll need a bit of coordination between people, don't be an idiot. That sounds harsh, I know, but better safe than sorry. If you can get in with someone you already know, even better, it'll be one less pair we'll have to make. But if you don't, I suggest getting to know the other RPer, out of the RP, so you two can plan things better and easier.
-Posting and stuffs: this RP won't be fully text or picture based, it'll have a mix of both. So, you can keep it mostly text, but for important moments, like a sprite prototyping, someone entering the Medium, or other things you might deem important enough, get a picture to go with their bit of text. Oh, and a picture of your trolls room would be nice too, for their introductory post. You don't have to make a text wall for every one of your posts, but try to make at least one decent paragraph. For an easier time coordinating the two trolls's actions, you and whoever else you end up with should use a Sync.in or equivalent, to write the post together. That's your best bet for a fluid post, with both characters actually staying in-character. Also, if you don't have Pesterchum for whatever reason, I'm sorry to say you can't participate.
So, yeah, eight players spots, two are already taken, one by me, and one by a friend of mine, but the other six are free and open. If you're interested in joining, send me an application via PM like the one down there. If you want your troll to fill a specifc spot, please say so in the PM you send me. You can add a land and consorts and stuff too, but that'll more likely get changed to suit both your troll and whoever they enter the Medium with. Your title and moon are also subject to change, so that there are no repeated titles or an uneven ammount of dreamers on each moon.
Don't worry too much if your spriting skills aren't that great, I'm willing to make you at least a base sprite, just so that everybody has one. And you can just draw all of your images on your own, so there's no need for sprite edits.
Once your app is accepted, just post your troll here, minus the SGRUB bit.
