MONBOUND 2.0 [Currently on Hiatus! Watch for the reboot, Summer 2012, bipches.
This RP will be a Troll Session of SGRUB, with a little twist- rather than have any normal entry item, you will simply obtain an EGG, which you must hatch in order to enter the Medium. From this egg, our young trolls will gain their own personal ally, which reflects their personality, and grows along with them. The character’s every action will be reflected in your monster, evil deeds making it looks more twisted, and acts of generosity leaving it with a more peaceful and serene look. When your troll enters the Medium, his or her egg will hatch, and from it will emerge the monster, in a smaller, globular form, its colour matching that of the troll’s blood. Each character will have their own title and powers separate from their monster's, but keep in mind your monster when thinking of a power- and how you can combine the traits of both to complement each other.
However, we will also be using the two-team aspect in a new way; the two teams will actually be rivals, fighting against one another for supremacy. Their entry chains will be separate, but their divisions will reach far beyond this. Beyond that, we will have to find out.
1. Please, remain polite! Or at the VERY least, civil. I don’t want any arguments or drama to interfere with the RP.
2. No godmodding, auto-hitting, etc.; this includes Mary Sues and Gary Stues, don’t put them in this RP (even IF they are meant to be a parody, I’d rather not have them here). If you have any questions about your character and think they may qualify as a Sue/Stu, PLEASE ask me. If you send in an application I find too Sue-ish, I’ll be sure to notify you, but I can’t accept it until I’m sure they’ll work in the setting of the RP.
3. PLEASE, PM me your profile (which should be written in common MSPA style), as well as using the HTML button, to make it a little easier(and quicker) for me to put it into the OOC. I’ll be sure to update the OOC Thread as frequently as possible.
4. Remain ACTIVE! If for some reason you are going to be unable to access your computer, I understand, but I must be notified somehow beforehand! I understand that some things happen, but I have to keep the RP active. So, if you are gone for longer than 2 WEEKS without contact (meaning, no one’s had contact with you of any sort) and have had no indication of leaving beforehand, I will have to kick you from this rp; No malice, honestly, I just have to keep this RP moving.
5. Please, use common sense and remain respectful of other members in all of your interactions, I certainly don't want any sort of drama to arise, and certainly no one needs that in their lives. Unlike many people, I really believe in this fandom. I've seen lots of roleplays, wonderful art and amazing music come from it, and I want to continue to see that in this RP.
6.All Trolls should have 6 letter first names and 6 letter last names, to keep consistency, as well as being somewhere near 6 sweeps- not terribly young to where they would be the equivalent of little kids, and no older than about 8 sweeps to where they’re an adult. Thanks everyone!

You cannot be the emo troll, since that would be lame, so instead you are the apathetic troll. Your name is THESPI MACROS and you feel NOTHING. The only emotion you may happen to experience nowadays is MILD CURIOUSITY. In the past you were a COMEDIAN. However, that's all over now. You lost all your humor when your SUBJUGGULATOR MATESPRIT WAS MURDERED. He was your only true matesprit and life isn't as fun without him.
You are and ORANGE BLOODED TROLL. However, you type in A MUCH COOLER COLOR in honor of your deceased lover. Your low rank in the blood caste blesses you with THE POWER TO KNOW SOMEONE'S WANTS AND FEARS. You used to entertain yourself with this in your younger days, but have since lost interest in the sport. You cull your enemies with your BATONKIND, which is very much a joke specibus. You equipped it on a dare.
Your interests include ASSASSINATION, COSTUME DESIGN, and EXPLOSIVES. You have an intense interest in MATH AND THE SCIENCES, 4nd 73nd 70 74p3 1n 4 v3r4 num3r1c m4nn3r. Your trolltag is stylishShtick, you live in a castle overlooking the sea with your Griffin lusus, and your title, unbeknownst to you, is Prince of Mind.

>Be the silent one.
You are now ERETAS CARAIN. It was seven sweeps ago you were given life and in that time you have begun learning how to live with your problems: Namely, you are completely mute. You cannot and have never been able to speak, and so have developed your psychic powers from a young age. You can communicate telepathically, though only with one person at a time. Your power also automatically seem to translate between you and whomever you speak to, which has been useful in communing with your lusus. However while learning it was nigh impossible to hide anything, and you are still a horrible liar, only capable of lies through omission. You are an avid follower of digital media, particularly video games, and take active efforts to maintain powerful technology. Unfortunately high-end systems are cripplingly expensive, but you make do with what can be afforded. You've recently discovered a new game called SGrub and are hoping that you can run it without to many problems.
On the Internet you go by the name of silencedWorlds and y_u _ccasi_nally f_rget s_me letters... y_ur speech is als_ interrupted by strange pauses...
>Be the one left in the dark
Your name is LESEDI SKULLE and YOU CAN’T SAY YOU REALLY MIND.
In fact, you don’t mind much at all, which, is likely caused by the lack of things to mind.
Simply put, you live so far deep in the ocean that the only light you’ve ever seen is the BIOLUMINESCENCE of your somewhat-indifferent-but-hardly-apathetic lusus, who is most easily described as a rather MASSIVE ANGLERFISH. You put a special emphasis on the MASSIVE part, because she truly is enormous (you are personally not even the size of her eye, and her eyes are small in proportion to her body. You’re certainly not short, either) , and frankly, the only reason you’re still alive. You actually live on your lusus, and live because of it. You’ve managed to live an entire SEVEN SWEEPS.
If you haven’t been able to put two and two together already, you’re a SEADWELLER, or rather, DEEP-SEADWELLER. Whether or not you’re informed of the lifestyle of deep-seadwellers is hardly a big deal; typically, not many trolls suddenly decide to live as far down into the ocean as possible, in absolute darkness and where practically everything wants to eat you. Ordinarily, most trolls that reside down here are extremely cautious of others and dislike any form of social interaction, which likely has part in why deep sea-dweller isn’t particularly known. You have also never seen a regular sea-dweller come down so far; actually, you can’t say you’ve ever seen a regular sea-dweller ever. You think it likely has to do with the fact that it would probably be very physically straining, since there is NO NATURAL LIGHT, and the HIGH PRESSURE IS PRETTY INTENSE, especially to those who AREN’T ADAPTED TO IT. Vice versa, you think you would likely have difficulty adjusting to natural light and the lack of high pressure.
Most deep-seadwelling trolls usually have strange mutations to cope with the absolute darkness and brutality, much odder than YOUR OWN. On the small positive side, you don’t need to worry about being CULLED BY IMPERIAL DRONES, because they don’t seem to come down this deep. Unfortunately, all the other trolls trying to cull you kind of cancels out that bonus.
Like all higher bloods, deep-seadwellers have violent tendencies. If you pair that with the need to 1.) feed your lusus (they run large in the deep sea; smaller lusi will inevitably be eaten), 2.) find food and resources, and 3.) establish territory and reputation, you have a recipe for the violent, thuggish, homicidal, average deep-seadweller troll. There is no room for the weak in the deep sea.
Despite the description of the average disposition for the common deep-seadweller above, you’re no savage, and in fact, are PRETTY DOCILE for a homicidal vandal. You try to not contribute in quarrels, though you are HARDLY THE HERO. You simply have aspirations, and reaping lives hardly contribute to said aspirations. Instead, you prefer to defend yourself when necessary and not purposely engage in conflict. That’s not weak, right? Of course not. After all, you’re LESEDI SKULLE, MIGHTY DEEP-SEADWELLER OF THE MASSIVE UNDERBITE.
You are HIGH ON THE HEMOSPECTRUM, but in specifically seadweller terms, YOU’RE PRETTY LOW. However, you don’t really care for the hemospectrum since you’ve only ever interacted with other highbloods (in combat, usually), and haven’t actually ever seen a lowblood, since that’s physically impossible. Because of your ABSENCE OF HEMOSPECTRUM HEED, you have been known to break the barrier a bit. You try to learn of average troll culture through the INFOBAHN (internet), and do try to persist the mundane norms and habits, in an attempt to maintain the guise of an ordinary troll to your cyber peers. You have difficulty with pop culture and keeping up with trends, but you try your best, even if you sometimes have to pretend to know about things you really don’t. Just nod and smile.
Regrettably, you do have things that you’d rather hide. Adaptations, you’d like to call them. You find the word “mutant” a little bit harsh, nor particularly accurate. Then again, most trolls don’t have STRANGE OPPOSABLE FERN-LIKE APPENDAGES for audioholes. You call them fins anyway, but you’re not entirely sure it counts. Still, that’s hardly the weirdest thing you’ve seen down here. Regardless, you’re pretty wary of what your peers might think. They’re PRETTY USEFUL, though. Your “fins” are very sensitive, and detect movement in the water. They also curl up nice and neat against your head. It helps make up for barely being able to see. Speaking of seeing, your EYESIGHT IS SHIT. You’re lucky you have eyesight at all; you have your lusus to thank for that, yet again. You’re FAIRLY SENSITIVE TO LIGHT, but not as badly as the rest of the lot in the deep sea. Because you’re used to your lusus’s luminescence, you can perceive light, whereas other deep-seadwellers have to deal with the absolute darkness and frequently go blind or hypersensitive of any form of light. You can still see better in the dark, though. But, as mentioned before, YOUR EYESIGHT IS STILL REALLY, REALLY BAD. But you’d rather keep it that way, wouldn’t you? Yes, you would.
Even though you possess glasses, you purposely don’t wear them.
Why, you may wonder?
Because they block your VISIONS.
Well, you don’t really believe that. Visions, you mean. It’s all good fun, but you don’t really, actually believe in that sort of thing. But you play along with yourself, because you’ve managed to somehow justify your STRANGE HABITS with self-doubt and boredom. You believe it’s connected to your NARCOLESPY, which spurs random naps. You do pretty weird things in your naps, too. You never remember what you dreamed about when you wake up, but you’ve been known to wake up in places that you weren’t in when you literally fell asleep, as well as write weird things on the wall or floor. IT RARELY MAKES SENSE, though. Your narcolepsy is also pretty dangerous; you have to be very careful where ever you go, because otherwise you might just have a spontaneous nap on a pile of glass. Your lusus, yet again, saves your life constantly here. No matter were you go, she has odd, miniature growth-like tentacles that constantly catch your fall.
In addition to your pseudo-liking fora all things psychic, you have many other INTERESTS. You enjoy GARDENING on your lusus’s head, even though it often gets ransacked in STRIFES. You also must help take care of your lusus, meaning a SHITON OF CHORES. In your free time, you enjoy playing on the INTERNET, as it is the only way for you to connect to the outside world.
Your STRIFEKIND is your beloved 3PƐARKIND, made from one of your lusus’s teeth. Your fetch modus is the TOUCH MODUS. Meaning you identify the object by touch.
tldr; Lesedi Skulle, seven sweeps, deep-seadweller, lusus is a giant anglerfish, self-conscious and insecure, narcoleptic, possibly psychic, enjoys gardening, strifekind is 3PƐARKIND, fetch modus is TOUCH MODUS.
Yep! Female available for both, you can take your pick!
Also, just looked through the old OOC and saw a few people who didn't talk to me about reapplying so I temp-reserved for them, and now I bumped the team numbers up to 10 and 10.
However, I gotta hear word from the people in the old MonBound, I reserved a bunch temporarily here but if I haven't received any word by now I'm stuck in a really junky situation so I may have to drop you guys out if I hear no word, because I don't know these people and don't have their usernames to contact them.
For now, anyone who hopes to sign up for spots after this, be wary that I have no idea what the current actual reserved list is, so wait a bit before reserving, because at this rate I have no clue at all whatsoever. /= Will update when I've gotten more info, but that probably won't be able to get that before tonight. Those two spots may stay open or may go, so just give me a PM if you're at least interested so I can give you some info when I know it.

Also, to try and repair gender ratios the open spot left will be male. Of course, I still need to hear from Reaver, so I don't know if that spot is still reserved or no. Keep getting those profiles in, guys! I definitely want some more before the IC thread goes up.
Uh, I suppose? I'm not sure if I can be totally clear on this subject, but yes, you would design the character and then create a profile around it. However, because there are so many people in the RP, there's a select number of male and female slots, so at the current moment there's only one male slot available. PM me if you have any more questions or for clarification!
