    RP (Open, Recruiting) The Virus (Character Notes, OOC Discussion, etc)

    Write up your character sheets in here. You can then link this thread in your signature if you want to. I'll also be keeping game notes in this thread. I'll make a notation in the roleplay itself, to let everyone know when I've dropped something important in here.

    Well, here's my character.

    :::

    Name: Adrian Steelfang

    Age: 35 (young adult)

    Gender: Male

    Species: Dragon

    Scale colour: Midnight blue

    Eye colour: Amber with blue ring around rim of iris.

    Horn colour: Steel grey

    Mane colour: Vivid blue

    Wing membrane: Mottled pale grey underside, midnight blue upper surface

    Height: 2.13 metres (About 7 foot)

    Weight: 87 kg (about 192 pounds)

    Nationality: Australian

    Former occupation: Mechanic, Amateur Blacksmith

    Other notes: Mildly photosensitive; he needs to wear sunglasses (or a wraparound visor that he owns) when in direct sunlight, or he’s forced to squint from discomfort. His species grows at a normal rate to sexual maturity, but the ageing process slows dramatically after that. Despite being age 35, Adrian is actually still fairly young.

      Not bad, Arratra. You can go ahead and make an opening post in the roleplay too, if you want to. I've laid out what the situation is. How would you like for your guy to respond?

      Also, I've come up with a few ideas about why your guys were there:

      Arratra, your guy being a mechanic, was there doing an emergency repair on a semi when the outbreak happened. He, like everyone else, was forced to stay by martial law being declared by the governor. Your guy had his tow truck, all of his emergency-repair tools and stuff like that when he got stranded there.

      Just an idea for you. You can come up with one of your own if you want - this is just an opening suggestion for you.

      Slice, your guy was there because he was working for his dad. He was there to scout a new office location for his dad's company. It's what I've come up with off the top of my head. If you have a better one, then by all means, please run with it.

        Name: Mickey Mackarcy

        Age: 23

        Gender: Male

        Species: Dog (Labrador)

        Fur colour: Solid black

        Eye colour: Green

        Height: 1.78 metres (5 ft 11 inch)

        Weight: 72 kg (about 159 pounds)

        Nationality: American

        Former occupation: Assistant Director of MIC (Mackarcy Industrial Concerns)

        Other notes: Mr Mackarcy, Mickey's father, is one of the richest men in America, with his company providing a variety of services to other businesses. MIC is not necessarily a household name, but many office workers or investors will come across their products or services on a daily basis. Mickey's position in MIC is purely due to the influence of his father, and not due to any particular skills or experience on Mickey's behalf. Mickey is seen by many as brash and entitled, although this masks a deep-rooted fear of inadequacy and desire to be valued beyond his father.

        [Edit - I hadn't realised it had been 9 years since the zombocalypse! I amended his age to account for that, since he definitely wasn't 12 when his dad sent him to scope out new retail...]

        [Edit edit - It seems the "9 years" may have been a typo, since another post makes it 9 months and the original outline said a year. I'll revert to the original age, but let me know if that doesn't work out]

          Okay. Good deal, Slice. Now all you gotta do is make an opening post.

          We'll start you in Subtropolis, too.

            Yeah, we'll just say the virus happened a year ago. I think I was flipping back and forth on that, not remembering for sure what I'd said and being too tired to go back and check. So we'll just say it was a year ago.

              Just a quick note: Dragons like Adrian have a very long lifespan, but they subsequently also have a low birth-rate; a dragoness can have a child roughly every five-to-ten years. Twins are unusual, and larger multiples are vanishingly rare.

              As mentioned in the RP post, the longevity and low birth rate of his species (and not Denise's appearance: he cares much more about her personality) are why Adrian is wary of pursuing love with Denise (or anyone in Subtropolis), though the latter isn't entirely founded as he's male.

                Arratra, go ahead and respond to Slice's post. There's some room for character interaction there, and I don't want to be stepping on it just to be posting something.

                    Hey, perhaps this is a silly question, but with the announcement about SciFiFur closing down, are we carrying on this RP until it does, or calling it here?

                      That's up to you guys, really. Although, since it often takes you three or four days to write your posts, Slice, I don't see any point in continuing. With a post rate like that, it'll be impossible to get any momentum going or to really get into the story with the time we have left.

                      So given that, in the end, I suppose no.

                          That's going to be tricky... and the email system might erroneously flag it as spam (it's done it to me before).

                          That being said, if we can get past those challenges... maybe. Using CC would make it easy to send our replies to both participants (though I can see a potential difficulty with posting order).

                          What do you think, Rick, Slice?

                            I don't think I am going to be up for this. Once we close the site down, I am going to need to put it fully behind me. The decision to close the site has caused me a lot of emotional turmoil. It is something I am going to need to put behind me and not look back at when I do.

                              I can respect that, Rick. I don't think any of us want to make this harder than it has to be.

                              Thanks for creating it anyway, it's no easy feat putting together a world and populating it with characters. I hope you don't stop with your creative endeavours beyond SciFiFur.

                                  What's that other site you said you're on, Arratra? It's another Sci-Fi site right? I may come and check it out and say hi to you on it.

                                    Not quite: it's Spacebattles, which does, well, a bit of just about everything.

                                    I did use the same username on there, though, so you can find my work (a Battletech/Armoured Core crossover Self Insert called "Raventech", and a snippet collection, though neither has been updated in a while). I primarily hang around the Creative Writing sub-forum.

                                      Right, well with the surprise announcement today, it looks like we're back on for this! I'll definitely get a post in soon, but it's come a little late tonight for me to get a good one written - it's late here and I need to be getting to bed!

                                      I will make sure I don't hold off too long though!

                                        Name: Tobias Datton

                                        Age: 29

                                        Gender: Male

                                        Species: Horse (Appaloosa)

                                        Eye colour: Blue

                                        Height: 6'2"

                                        Other notes: Tobias has been through a lot in the recent years, having to hole up in a bomb shelter he and the rest of his former work associates had discovered. Unfortunately, his skills are limited outside of the physical realm.
