RWBY ((OOC discussion+sign ups))

2,191 posts in this topic

In the world of Remnant, creatures known as the "Creatures of Grimm" roam the land. Mankind had battled with the creatures of Grimm for survival since the beginning, but because of their resourcefulness, mankind had discovered 'Dust' which evened the odds against the Grimm. Since then, mankind was able to fight back and survive, using the Dust to power magical abilities and weapons. Now, young Hunters and Huntresses are trained to protect humans from the creatures of Grimm from cornering them into extinction.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We'll be in the city of Vale, attending Beacon Academy. We will be a team of four (i'll figure out the name once we know the characters). We'll be paired during the first test, where we will be launched into the air and land in the forest of Grimm and the first person we see will be our partner.

I'm not sure whether we should be ponies or humans, it seems to be weird to hold weapons with hooves. It would be handy if you know the series, somethings would be difficult to explain if you haven't watched it. Everyone would be 17.

App:

slash_claw_ref_by_symphonicfire-d7zkx6t.png

Name: Slash Claw

Gender: Male

Race: Faunus (cat ears)

Appearance: Slash is quite tall and quite muscular, but does not have the body of a body builder. He has short, messy brown hair that his ears poke out of and emerald eyes. He wears brown cargo pants that are rolled up to the bottom of his knees wit a white belt and a chain hanging from the belt loop on the right side of his pants. He also wears a white T-shirt with his symbol (cutiemark) on the bottom left of his shirt and an orange plaid shirt over it. He wears sports orange and brown sneakers and wraps his hands in bandages.

Weapon: Auralynx. Slash has orange gauntlets (like Yang's) that go from his wrist to his elbow. He can shoot bullets and explosive rounds from his gauntlets, they can also enhance his strength. Inside both his gauntlet, he has a rope kunai that he uses to keep his foe from escaping or to draw himself closer to things (by shooting at the ground or trees and pulling himself towards the target). When he is not in battle, it is retracted to his wrists.

Fighting Style: Slash specializes in close combat, mainly boxing or kickboxing. Even without the enhancement from his gauntlets, he is really strong as one punch can sent a man several feet in the air and through a wall. Slash uses the rope kunai to maneuver around the forest, but is not as effective in a town or building. He also uses the rope kunai to pull back his foe to keep them from escaping. His gauntlets reach up to his elbows so he could block attacks with this arm. Since he is a Faunus, he also has night vision and good hearing, he is also part cat which makes him agile and acrobatic.

Personality: Slash is a mischievous, aloof, and an unpredictable sort of person. Away from the public eye, he is actually very talkative and at times stupid. Although he is acts as if he doesn't care, he's actually really protective and cares about the people he knows. Even though he seems like a regular guy on the outside, he has many hidden skills and talents that he rarely speaks about because of the many different jobs he had. He also doesn't like to brag or people who do.

 

1: Tehengu (PyroBlaze)

2: Midnight Blossom (Shadowbolt0)

3: Andrea Indigo (DreamySunday)

 

Hoping to get joiners! I'm so excited that i'm going to do a cover art for this!! :catbug:

(Anthro would be an alternative if you wanted it. To me that essentially means ponies with the proportions of humans, meaning they still had their tails and their horns/wings, and hooves for feet(or regular feet, whichever), though they would have hands. Anyways, I should be get an app up pretty soon.)

I guess, but that takes away the option of a Faunus. Since my OC is a hybrid, it makes sense to make him a Faunus.

Yeah, makes sense. RWBY races it is, I suppose.

Name: Tehengu

Gender: Male

Race: Human (unless you're willing to let him be a Faunus with wings or increased eyesight from having bird eyes, since he's usually a griffon)

Appearance: Tehengu has a large build, bigger than most anybody else he meets. His musculature is well developed as well. His brown hair hangs naturally, though he keeps it out of his functioning eye. He has a bandanna going over the ruined eye in a way that still leaves his working green eye uncovered. He wears a set of light armor painted black.

Weapon: His weapon is a large bow that can shoot arrows over very long distances, essentially making it a silent sniper rifle. It can also collapse into a large blade for when his enemies get into melee range. He is best at picking off his enemies at range, hitting them where it hurts and not letting them get close enough to fight back.

Personality: He is generally laid back when he's not on a mission, nice to his friends and allies. He is fiercely loyal, willing to do what is needed of him. He will not abandon or betray his friends and allies. When he is on the job he becomes serious, focused on getting the job done while not letting his friends and allies die.

Wouldn't it be more beneficial to have fully anthro (fingers and toes) be the stand in for humans. Semi anthro (leg hooves and other animalistic traits?) For the faunis

It's better to keep it full anthro with both since having more than one animalistic traits would make them more animal than human. They also do this in the show.

Name: Midnight Blossom

Gender: Female

Race: Faunus

Appearance: Small for her age, she has long dark blue hair that her ears come out of, along with amber eyes. She is lithe in build, her arms looking like they don't possess much strengh, her legs the same and herself looking small to the general observer. She'll often wear a black shirt, with a long trench coat and tight pants, and boots, all in black. Other times she changes her outfit, but in the field, she'll always wear the same.

Weapon: Midnight carrier two large blades, that she has the holsters for on her back under her coat. The first one, Judgement, is a long black blade with a hilt that is extremely advatagious in use of combat against other blades. The second one, Requiem, has a modified blade, allowing her to use it in assoaition of Dust if she has access to it. The blades can be connected to form a duel-hilted weapon, or held in each hand seperately.

Midnight doesn't believe in carrying a form of firearm, instead simply having a whip and her own abilities to get close to her enemies and finish them off. If all else fails, she can use Dust attacks from her second blade to attack her enemies from a distance.

Fighting Style: Midnight doesn't carry a weapon that allows her to attack from range (Outside her blades, Requiems dust attacks) meaning she relies heavily on her own speed and agility, plus her weapons, to get in close to engage. She is extremely powerful with her blades, but her hand-to-hand fighting technique is custom and very powerful. Often times she'll think about her engage, when she has the time or isn't emotionally invested, going from a stragtegic position. If left with little choice, she will use Dust to engage her enemies at range, but often uses it as distractions to keep her enemies occupied in order for her to get in nice and close and finish her enemies.

Personality: Known for often keeping to herself, Midnight enjoys the company of books and herself. She doesn't make friends easily, and hence often doesn't bother trying to make them in the first place. She'll often never do something without personal gain, and never usually on a whim. Unknown to many, she loves to sing and take care of wildlife, animals and plants alike.

True! To be honest i didn't want more than one faunus in the team, especially when they are half of the same animal. I guess it's okay for the first time, i'll mention that next time.

Name: Andrea Indigo.
 

Gender: Female
 

Race: Hugh man.
 

Appearance: Being only 5' even, Andrea is quite short. Her hair is a little longer then shoulder length, and is a light shade of pink. Her eyes are turquoise. Traditionally, Andrea wears a smokey gray hooded robe that goes down to just about her ankles. Under this robe, Andrea will usually wear a pair of black leggings, a white mid sleeve shirt. a dark blue cardigan, and a pair of blue sneakers.
 

Weapon: Andrea keeps a concealed blade attached to a small gauntlet that she wears on her arm under her shirt(think hidden blade). Along with the this small blade, She keeps a mid sized straight sword for open combat. She can channel her magic from both of these weapons.
 

Fighting Style: Andrea does not like to fight in open combat, She prefers to take her opponents by surprise, usually from above. When forced into open combat though, Andrea prioritizes escape. Using her polarity semblance in attempt to unbalance her opponents and run. Using her sword to deal with anything that tries to give chase.
 

Personality: Andrea is brash, arrogant, rather smug, and a tad aggressive. She sees others as nothing but a hindrance or an audience to impress. Andrea will usually fight with a lot of showmanship and flamboyancy when allies are present in an attempt to show off her perceived superiority.

It should be fine. Usually there's only one Faunus on a team. If there was to be two, They would be half of different animals. This is my first RWBY RP, so it won't matter.

I'll do the cover art once we get started. I'd probably draw them as humans instead of ponies, so I won't be able to upload. They'd probably look cooler as humans with their weapons XD

Okey dokey! Very sorry to others on the wait lists since Dreamy is now in.

Right! I'll start the RP soon and figure out the team name! Feel free to leave suggestions if you know how it works.

T M S A

A for Andrea, S for Slash, T for Tehengu and M for midnight.

From what i remember, team names are composed by taking the first letter of each team mamber (Hence why RWBY is is Ruby, Whice, Blake, Yang)

So we have TMSA (Unless we bend the rules to make a better name)

I can't think what it makes right now, but that's what (I think) we have to work with.

I'd very much like to see this picture.

I'm not sure about the team name thing.
