01/29/2005 9:15 AM

This is based loosely on the soon to be released predator: Concrete Jungle. The back story is, a predator gets banned from earth because his technology was stolen by a crime lord. He is exiled and not expected to live. But theres nothing worse then a pissed of predator whos been left to stew for a hundred years. He returns to earth to kill the crime lord. As well as the hit movie AVP.

THIS story is situated in Los Angeles, the sity of lost angels. A small group of predators on a hunting expedition arrive on earth only to find their hunting grounds infested by the ultimate prey. The humans are doing an exceptional job fending off the tide of xenomorphs, yet they are still losing. The young hunters were not equiped with bombs because they felt no need to bring them. And the story will drift along as according. Please dont think because the predator is one of the most advanced creatures in the universe it is invincible. The Predator can be killed.

Heres what i want to see for charachters.

Race: Human/alien/predator.
Weapons: (five each, alien is limited to claws, tail, and teeth. humans get six because they themselves are comparatively weak)
Class: (heavy gunner, assault predator, preatorian etc.)
Appearance: try to make this vivd and include scars.
Equipment: (stealth tech, nightvision, pheremone vision. etc. limit to four.)
Innate ability: (alien only) The alien is incredibly stealthy, can stick to walls, can regenrate health by eating stuff(that makes up for the lack of weapons.)
Innate ability: (predator only) The predator can climb walls, although its difficult, and can see four vision modes. your choice of which.)
Innate ability: (human only) Humans are crafty and cunning and can make a weapon out of anything.

And now my charachter.

02/01/2005 7:00 PM

ooh a plasma rifle. good idea. your good. Just a note though, usually electronic weapons are hooked into the predators power system that runs the shoulder cannon, so you dont need charges on the rifle.

02/01/2005 7:05 PM

Breastplate more acceptable? lol, just a crazy idea I just got, tell me if I need to change it.

02/01/2005 7:17 PM

its all good. armors all extra appearance as most aliens and humans can dig right through it.

02/01/2005 7:20 PM

Yea, the only purpose it serves is to keep any acid spills from going right through his torso, that would be a most horrific way to die.

02/01/2005 7:29 PM

oog *big shudder* id rather get infested by the things.

02/03/2005 12:12 PM

Just to let everyone know, that's a different predator. I'm not gunna take over anyone's character :D

02/03/2005 7:54 PM

oh now ya tell me. ok edit time.

02/03/2005 8:01 PM

oops, i forgot to add this. Predators can charge their enrgy by plugging their blades (wrist claw, grievs whatever) into an electrical outlet or other electrical thing.

02/04/2005 8:25 AM

oh now ya tell me. ok edit time.

My bad. :p

02/06/2005 6:11 PM

what'd everyone die?

02/10/2005 9:38 PM

((MWAHAHAHA I just recently watch AVP and LOVED it so I hope you boys dont mind if a female joins the fray)) :D

Name:Zalya Stitch
Rank: Lieutenant (Field Medic) of the USMC (USMC ROCKS!!!)

Weapons:Swiss army knife, (with all sorts of little gadets for picking locks, and other sorts of useful things), stolen predator staff with the acid proof double blades, the now 'standard' Jungle Eagle with extra ammo that she found on dead soliders bodies, Dual automatic pistols with specialized acid filled bullets (that she devised when she was trapped in a collapsed building with a dead predator and alien), discarded shot gun and excess shells she picked up in her travels along the streets of LA (after the beginning of the attack), and a highly modified tazer, it can be used as a weapon to shock aliens or as a defribulator(when the electrical output is adjusted)

Equipment:She carries a medical kit with scalpels, gauze, bandages, ointment, hydrogen peroxide, needle and thread (for stitches), slings, burn treatment ointment, splints(smaller size), andvarious other medical facsimilies needed for feild work against the Aleins and Predators. Slightly big body armor that was issued to a fallen comrade before she picked it up, the I.R. helmet, the modified tazer(the same one as in weapons), heavy duty black back pack for carring med kit and equipment.

Appearance:Zalya has long, naturally black straight hair (went let down it goes to the bottom of her back) that she usually keeps in a braided bun under the I.R. helmet, her eyes are a green-gray color in a half circle pattern one side green the other side gray. Caucasian with very tan skin from long hours spent out doors as a field med. She has an accidental crecent moon scar on her face from her encounter with the fighting Alien and Predator, and a scar from her shoulder to the middle of her back from running away from a Predator's double sided staff. Under the soot blackened armor she wears dark blue denim jeans and a tough leather jerkin (dyed red because of her position as a medic).

Innate Ability:She can depict how her patients got their injuries and best how to treat them. She can think quick on her feet and learns by osmosis(meaning if she sees someone do it she usually can copy them), thats how she knew how to operate the Predator's staff. Her quick wits keep her alive for the battle.

02/10/2005 9:46 PM

very nice, good to see a medic occasioanlly. your good.

02/11/2005 3:39 PM

Did you like...physically mark her so that like..she can see and other humans can see and stuff or was it a predator mark?? o.O

02/11/2005 7:40 PM

Blacks on the run from most of the hive and most of the humans, so all he did was basically point at her and send a 'shes mine'to the rest of the predators.

02/14/2005 3:15 PM

Aarooooooooooon...........Laaaaaance Where aaaaaare you guys?!?!?!?!!? o.o;;; Pleaaaase come back

02/15/2005 6:24 PM

lol, yeah this thread did kinda die. whered everybody go???

02/16/2005 3:14 PM

YAY YOUR BACK!! WOOHOO! sorry bout that.....Heh...

Zalya would be even more scared if she knew that Black was going to do. She stole the staff off a corpse...and has no clue about Predator culture....so she didnt really realize that she put herself in danger o.o;;;;;;

02/16/2005 9:07 PM

predators live on an honour clan system, even if she didnt know, taking black's ancestors stuff would be an insult to Black's line.

02/17/2005 11:49 AM

It great to be back...

02/18/2005 2:35 PM

04/09/2005 6:47 PM

hmm, maybe he was stoned at the time? :D

04/13/2005 1:43 PM

Hey guys (and girls) I saw this, and I thought it looked pretty cool. Since no one else seems to want to be the aliens, I decided I would be, but on a couple of conditions. You can find them in the description of my characters. (if you hate my characters, I can remake it or just drop out or something.)

Name: Lak'tar (Queen) All Other Units: called upon using a specifically pitched scream. They can be extremely similar and the creatures will still understand when being called upon.

Race: Alien

Age: Varies. Anywhere from 0 - 1000 (The hatchlings from the queen are newborns, and can mature instantly if they have a host. The aliens reach maturity at age 5, and fight at that age. The queen is a thousand years old or so, and thats the reason.)

Weapons: Claws, Tails, Teeth, Acid Blood, Horns (queen only)

Class: Mainly small hunting/fighting packs. I will also control the queen.

Queen: About 8 times the size of any predator. She has a head much like a normal alien, which flares out to become a large shield with several protruding small at the back of her head. She has four arms and two feet, to compensate for her large size, and an extremely long tail. The tail has evolved a little to become much stronger and sharper than a normal Alien's. Her hide is black, and her teeth are white. Inside her mouth is a second mouth which can extend to eat the insides of a creature without her having to get her face dirty. Her head starts out very thin and long and fans out, as I said before.

Fighter/Hunter: Much the same, but his head stays long and thin. His tail isn't as sharp, and he is only slightly larger than the predator. Both of the creatures have black hides that look like armor, but it is extremely tough.

Equipment: Pheremone vision- The queen has the ability to lay eggs, but they need a living host or it takes them several years to mature. The creatures that hatch can attack anything that moves, but are easy to kill.

Innate ability: Pheremone vision, wall walk (very easy for an alien) bloody body - they can attack the queen hundreds of times all over the body. Since the queen is so large, it doesn't hurt it much, and its acid blood covers it, making it impossible to physically touch without being burned. This only works with the queen, as it would be too much harm to any other Alien. Also, the aliens can secrete a substance which they can use to stick a creature to the wall as a host for the hatchlings. This is inescapeable unless someone else frees you.

Weakness: not too smart, few weapons, don't communicate as much as other races. (The queen is able to speak all languages through reading the mind of a creature and understanding it. She is the only one that can be negotiated with)

If any of this is too god-like, I understand, but you must realize that I will rarely use the queen, mabye at the end or something, and probably only once. The little hatchlings are extremely easy to kill - just shoot or cut them (they are just fairly hard to catch, as they are fast). Also, the Aliens are easy to dominate, thats the reason for the packs (2 - 4). If you need any changes, let me know.

04/13/2005 5:53 PM

oh good, someones playing the entire hive instead of an individual drone. Its all good.

04/13/2005 6:31 PM

ok. I just wanted to make sure you weren't against me controlling the entire hive. I've never done something like this before, though, just to let you know, so you can keep rping like you have been until I jump in. Im just looking for an opportunity to jump in.

04/13/2005 6:37 PM

jump in any time. as for never done this before, keep your eye out for a playing god thread in Dragon Lance forums. I crashed the last one, but I didnt know it had been dormant and not ready for war. Next time I'll be nice.

04/14/2005 11:27 AM

finally! aliens!! welcome aboard!

04/14/2005 1:39 PM

Well, not quite yet. I am going fishing this weekend, since It's the first week of fishing season. You can continue controlling my guys until I get back. If someone else comes along and wants to play as them, let them. I would not mind being a human or a predator. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up.

04/14/2005 4:10 PM

Welcome to the game very cool dude (assuming thou art a dude) xD Yay for fishing!!! Woohoo! Catch big fish :D

04/15/2005 1:00 PM

05/09/2005 10:24 PM

said the MIA. any ways, I have purchased my self a copy of Concrete Jungle. Not quite what I was hoping for, and I'm sick of xenomorphs, but still an awesome game. I enjoyed hunting pimps and hookers.

05/10/2005 5:40 PM

nice. I'm back though. Oh, and, damn you all to hell, post again so I can get my 100th exp point. thanks :)

06/12/2005 1:32 PM

06/12/2005 3:25 PM

I think its just a crappy thread oh well. *kicks thread* yup, its dead. *gives hug* there there.
