11/26/2005 6:52 PM

This thread is based on the show Full Metal Alchemist.
Well we're finally getting this thread started. I guarantee a damn good storyline from my part. I still haven't decided wether to play a character or simply control NPC's. I'm going to need at least one character to be a soldier or national alchemist. If you do decide to play an army character, he/she must have a rank of Colonel or lower.

Occupation: (Alchemist, Mechanic, Soldier, National Alchemist, etc...)
Background: Character bio (specify nationality ie. Ishbalite, Amestrian???, etc..)

As for reference to the show, I wouldn't like any direct contact with any of the characters but mention is fine. The setting is around at the same time as the show.
Note that i will be using a Roleplaying Skill Power rule. Your character can be as powerful as you're a good RPer. Ex: You need to be a good RPer to be a chimera. To be a humunculus, you have to be the best damn RPer I've ever seen.

I wanted to know if you could make an exception about that rule because I was thinking of being Elysia Hughes (Maes Hughes daughter). I've been thinking about this character for a while. Please let me know so I can put my character information on.

Can I be a National Alchemist specialized in plant alchemy who has wooden studded gloves, that have alchemy circles so I just have to touch the ground to use tree alchemy? The plant alchemy works by reanimating dead rotten plants in the ground but they are only reanimated for a while. When they become dead again they stay the way they are.

Name: Archer Giles

Age: 19

Occupation: National Alchemist

Military Name: "The Green Alchemist"

Gender: Male

Description: My character is tall, has red eyes, has brownish skin, and has black hair. He uses Green or Plant alchemy

Background: My charecter was born in Ishbal and was raised in Central City. (This is ver important info) my charecter was raised in ishbal until a war came (age5). When the militare got to Ishbal his mom put him in a secret passageway and all she was able to say was "go, you're brother has escaped already" the military started shooting, and his mom shut the secret door. He waited and waited while hearing his mom's wails. Soon he started walking through the dark tunnel until he hit a door he opened it, and it was a military building he was in a secret place then he found his way out. the miltary found him but they raised him because they knew he didn't know what was going on.

Kit, I'm kinda skeptical but I'll let you use Elysia. You can assume that some years have gone by since I don't believe you'd like to use a kid character.

Anime fan, please add more detail and change "wooden gloves" - those wouldn' be very flexible.

Name: Col. Aaron 'Short Circuit' Lacey
Age: 20
Occupation: State Alchemist
Gender: Male
Description: Medium brown hair trimmed around ears and neck, typical military attire, average hieght or 5'7", and appx 160 of an athletic muscular build. Handsome features with captivating grey eyes and solid jaw.

Background: Born and raised in some back water town, Aaron always seemed to have a magnetic personality. He found it interesting too when people would be struck with static electricity. Around the age of eight he assisted his father who was a bit of a scientist...well his father was a farmer but had a hobby with science. He had Aaron aid him in his research. Everything has energy, potential and kinetic each is measured in calories. Typically kinetic energy is shown in a form of fire, where potential energy is observed while something is stagnant. With this too comes many elements which make up every thing to cells and atoms. For this energy that everything holds also creates a magnetic force, this magnetic force interacts and affects every aspects of a persons being. This is what captivated Aaron and also what prompted him in his study of alchemy. With this combination of alchemy and science aided Aaron greatly in his passing of the test to become a state alchemist. He wowed the judges with his ability to create a minature thunder storm and control where the lightning struck. Since then to aid in his use of alchemy he had formed a set of gloves that have alchemy circles with miniture magnets at the tips of each finger and upon the palm. He uses the magnets to alter various forces which allow him greatly in combat to reflect bullets as well as pull weapons away from specific targets. The gloves also enable the Short Circuit alchemist to create an EMP which disables nearly any and all electronic devices. Though he has great potential on the battle field, Col. Aaron Lacey has spent much of his career doing strategy work surveying potential battlefields, and researching critical points for defence. He is also one of the few to actually witness Col. Mustang in battle, and is greatly glad that he was not his opponent. The Full Metal alchemist was an intreresting matter though, however his auto maille limbs seemed more burden than benefit...

Sorry if I started to ramble in the BIO. Let me know if he is approved, though I have not watched everysingle episode of FMA, I know the show, general storyline, and basic set up. The military is big enough so that the men would only know of each other. Also I know how Mustangs gloves are set up which is why I did mine the same way except for the magnets. LOL, if you think about it magnets and electricity have a whole lot of potential which I dont think have been touched much upon in the actual show.

Aaron and Draco, accepted.

Note to everyone: Don't make your characters TOO powerful.
I'd like if we had some non-alchemists. :/ Those only soldiers get a fire arm and specialty at using it.

Whats the point of having an OOC thread if its not gonna be used?

Anyways, if there is any wondering about the spinning thing, I got the idea from rail guns. Basically an object is magnetically spun to incredible speeds and then projected out of the barrel by use of a 'rail' system. So same basic concept, using magnetic force to spin Isa around until he either blacks or reds out. That and that with Isa spinning means that Isa would have a harder difficulty in targeting Aaron.

12/05/2005 11:30 PM

Why do I feel that I am the only one doing OOC posts in the OOC part of the thread??

Also, I wont respond just yet because it seems that part of my last post was completely ignored. Spinning around at a high rate of speed makes it difficult to focus. And if people do not know what blacking or reding out are it is when the blood is rush away from or towards ones head, respectively, thus enabling one unconcious.

So far now just assume my character is just following the Generals orders.

12/07/2005 11:41 PM

My apologies Aaron, I've been busy as of late and haven't had much time to post here. However, I did read your previous post, I simply didn't think of anyhting of importance to reply... And now I have nothing important to reply. :P

12/07/2005 11:59 PM

Its fine, its fine. Ill just post a responce to make sure this keeps moving. But like I said just take it for now as if my character had just obeyed orders and went off. In my next post Ill bring in how hes starting on his mission and what not with reference back to the incident to tie in any gaps.

Anime_fan- I didnt go off of your post stating the conversationin in the hall because in my earlier post my character had already been seated in his own office, so I just picked it up from there. Hope you understand, I dont care to backtrack my characters last few actions. Hence why I just continued as if the conversation had been held in Laceys office the entire time, the only change in actions would be your character walking alittle more.

01/02/2006 9:32 PM

Draco, please post soon or the RP will go on without you.

01/06/2006 7:16 PM

Sorry If I am late. Well my computer crashed and we had to get it fixed. Either way here is my character if you guys will accept it.

They let him go but he died on the streets from blood loss and a shot in the ribs. This struck a cord in him. For the next few years until he was 18 he played along and went on the road everyone thought he would take but as he turned 18 and graduated from school he left his hometown for good. On a mission of revenge against the Ishbalins he saught to kill their entire race. Learning alchemy since he was in middle school and refining his abilities to create. The world around him ment nothing the only thing he looked to now was the Ishbalins.
