Character/Player List and Sign Up (Rome RPG)

Post by Piero on Thu 14 Feb 2008 - 12:33

If you wish to sign up, please post your character profile or say which canon character you want to play here. Note that non canon character profiles will be subject to an open evaluation and approval process in which all current players may take part. Characters who have previously appeared in fanfiction are discouraged due to the difficulties of trying to incorporate fanfic backgrounds.

Character Creation Guidelines

-The sheet that should be filled out for new characters is below.
-Keep in mind that this RPG is set shortly after the end of Volume Five of the manga.
-Consider the setting. Your character should not seem like they’d be out of place in the canon GSG material. They should ‘feel’ like they fit in the setting.
-Keep it simple. The less of a stretch it is for others to believe your character’s history, the better. Down to earth is better then far out. It’s also probably best not to have your character be some sort of next generation super cyborg or something like that.
-Players will need to find a balance between fitting in easily and being unique. Characters who are too different from the norm may seem out of place, but those who are too similar to the established cast may seem uninteresting.
-Nationality is an important consideration. The SWA does have some foreigners in its service, but it is an Italian agency, and as such a large proportion of the staff are probably Italian.
-Consider why your character was chosen to be part of the SWA. If your character is an adult, why would the agency want them? What do they have to offer? Are they an elite operator? And intelligence analyst? A specialist with unique skills of some kind?
-By the same token, also consider whether there’s anything about your character that would prevent the agency from taking them. I consider GSG a reasonably realistic series. Skills will only get someone so far in the SWA, if the higher ups think they’d be too much of a liability, they likely wouldn’t get in.
-Consider your character’s age. This is a biggie for any character who is ex Special Ops. Front line Special Forces operators are often pretty young due to the physical requirements, but at the same time they often aren't too young because of the experience requirements.
-As far as weapons go, consider not just what you consider ‘cool’ but what would make sense for your character to carry given their skillset, background, etc. If your character was a member of a maintenance unit in the Italian Army, he might tend towards the Beretta pistols and rifles he was trained with rather then anything else because of familiarity.

You have profiles for these characters, right? Could you post them here so that we can take a look at them?

I have to admit I'm probably more comfortable with you using a female OC cyborg then a male one. It's not like it's impossible that the SWA has male cyborgs, but all the canon ones thus far have been female.

As for the entry posts, I'll probably leave them up for now, but I think that how best to incorporate your characters into the RPG given its current status is probably a topic that should be considered for discussion.

Thanks for showing interest. Its good that you're eager, just slow down a bit for now okay?

Other preferred Weapon: H&K Series weaponry, variety types of grenades

A Generation 2 operative, Anna is a fast and agile girl. Her accuracy in close-quarters is unquestionable, and her tendency to carry grenades to the battlefield adds the sheer terror she could unleash.

that's the girl...


Name: Frederick H. Koch
Gender: Male

He is known for his short temper

this one's the boy Very Happy

I'll develop the girl character...I think. Its new, so I guess development is nice? Laughing

There might be a boys' dorm somewhere on the Agency grounds, all we know - perhaps they want to keep the boys and girls seperate. Or maybe they have another set of premises elsewhere where all the male cyborgs are (more plausible). The Agency's name says it's a public corporation for social welfare, after all, and not a home for orphaned girls.

ive been looking out on the About Three Hours Outside Rome... (RPG Thread Six) thread for a while and i see that not much is happening. im just asking if i can sign my OC in the thread. however, he won't be on the Girl's side he will represent a 3rd party. just another assassin who has a hit and is now crossing paths with the girls. how's that?

O yeah biodata

Name: Lance Kane

Profession: Assassin, spy

AKA: DarkShot, Black Heart, teenage superweapon

Age: 16.

Hair: Black.

Eyes: Tinge of Blue.

Nationality: Spanish, American, Asian

General appearance: Same as Raphael, likes wearing a jacket or polo over his clothes.

Primary Weapon: Modified FAMAS (fittable with bayonet, grenade launcher, magazine can "organize" bullets), M40 sniper rifle

Secondary Weapon: Desert Eagle, ACP tactical, .50 Magnum revolver

Other Weapons: Combat knives, throwing knives, modified short sword (fashioned like a combat knife)

Combat Style: "eyes at the back of his head" quick reaction time. Shoots before being shot. Mixed martial arts, grapling. Mind play (expects the opponents moves)- Mass killings, ruthless towards hired thugs.

Quotes: "Efficiency over everything else." "Death is the ultimate solution, and the ultimate waste of time." "What is death/dead? It's what I'm not and what you're about to be." "A bullet is a period in a sentence... in every sentence." "Emotions are like those plastic things on our shoe laces, we have no idea what they are for." "Yes, you can try surrendering, but that will just mean I can kill you with my knife instead of my gun." "If I don't shoot you in the head, you better wish I just missed." (might consider torture if did not kill the person out right)

Mind set: Light hearted, careless, Sadistic, Sociopathic tendencies

notes: discovered at the age of 12 by his sponsoring agency, Lance has been killing for about 4 years now. For those who are aware of his serivices, a hefty price is charged for his hits, he has not failled a hit yet but is known as a loose cannon in most occations.

my notes: i like to refer to him as a "boarder line sociopath" showing no sense of emotion but is probably still capable of them. Sadistic yet reserved about it and will hesitate to fullfill his desires. My fanfics would say he is capable of still loving but im leaving that hanging for now.

scenario: since he has been in action even before the writing of my fanfic i guess im staging this before my fanfic it self, anyway that will fall into a better prespective since that way it will be closer to your time frame. However, this will mean that he has never met the girls at all

Panzer: Okay, as far as Frederick goes, even aside from the whole gender issue I have a policy of discouraging characters who have already appeared in fanfiction. I prefer not to have to work their fanfic backgrounds into things.

As far as Anna goes, she's an original character, right? If that's the case, do you mind making a few edits to fit the RPG continuity better?

First of all, can you make her a generation one cyborg rather then a generation two? My character (Diana) is a generation one, and she's supposed to be fresh out of the medical ward, so it would be kind of difficult to incorporate a generation two cyborg.

Secondly, can you provide some detail on her handler? If you're going to be playing both of them, then its important for us to know about him as well.

Thirdly, we need to consider the method for your entry. Is your cyborg straight out of the medical ward? Or has she been around the agency for a little bit? Both routes have potential issues, although the first one might be the less complicated of the two.

West Nile: I'm somewhat leery about trying to incorporate a fanfic character even considering that you aren't planning for this to be the same continuity as the fanfic. The unknown organisation he works for is a bit of an issue. I really prefer characters who slip easily into the existing world of Gunslinger Girl. Have you considered trying to come up with an OC specifically for the RPG? (Also, sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not sure this RPG is the best place to look if you're looking for player characters versus player character combat, at least at this point.)

Also, the thread you're referring to doesn't have much happening yet. I have definite plans though. Smile

Oookay! Right on, right on! I don't mind Very Happy

Just tell me what to change senpai!

Ok, Anna as generation one...check that!

On handler: Klaus Falman

Information
Once part of Germany's GSG-9, Klaus Falman was fired after sending 2 of his squad to their deaths. Known to use ruthless tactics against terrorists and was commonly disregarding the safety of civilians and friendlies alike.

Had participated in 5 major GSG-9 Operations.

Upon joining the SWA, Klaus Falman hoped to fix his old self and begun caring for young children--that was what he expected. What he received is different. Anna was given exceptional conditioning; slightly above average, a little more to Triela. However, he is known to beat her up if she tends to foil.

Weapon he use: MAC10
Side Arm: M92F Beretta

im thinking about a cyborg Pinochio back from the dead

I wonder about Triela's reaction...

Triela: You! I thought I killed you!
Pino(?): No you haven't! I'm standing here FYI!

Panzer: Sorry its taken so long to get back to you on your character.

There's a variety of points that I think we should discuss, but can we address one major issue first? I'm wondering what your intentions are with participating in this RPG. Thus far, a lot of your posts have seem to be describing particular things your characters are doing, but haven't seemed to have much to do with what any of the other characters are doing. Are you trying to interact with the other characters? Or are you trying to write what your characters are doing seperately? Interaction between different characters is supposed to be a core part of roleplaying.

Piero-sen, for now I'm rather 'laying-off' since I haven't got a single clue on how things are going in the RP. I'm just here for the fun of it^^.

I'll try to interact with other characters later--if provided. My OC is new anyway Very Happy

Okay, thanks for clearing that up.

At this point, integrating a new characters would be a little bit awkward, but hopefully the RPG will move on to a point where it can do so soon. I'm going to actually suggest that we introduce Anna as a new character a little later on rather then right now. Its kind of busy right now, and I think its important that Anna be a newcomer so that the other players can establish how their characters interact with her -if she's supposed to have been at the agency for a while already, then people have to worry about how their characters are supposed to act towards her.

The extra time will also give us a chance to fine tune your characters and ensure their are no problems in their profiles.

My other suggestion would be that we get someone to help you with your posts due to the language issue. Is that all right with you?

Thank you.

Alright then, I guess at this point we move on to fine tuning Anna and Klaus to make sure they fit in well when they join. All players are invited to take part in this discussion.

As I'd mentioned earlier, Anna probably needs to be changed from a generation two to a generation one cyborg due to the time period the RPG is set in.

The events of the RPG begin after the ending to the Pinocchio arc (essentially the end of volume five) so Elsa is um...well... dead. Sorry.

Panzer: Okay, before we start looking at some of the minor details, I have a serious concern about Klaus. Supposedly he was discharged from the GSG-9 for ordering two of his subordinates to their deaths. However, units like GSG-9 carry out high risk operations, and casualties are something that are a definite possibility in those sorts of missions.

About the only reasons I can think of why they would discharge Klaus for that incident would be if the orders he gave were reckless and/or tactically unsound. Which seems like a distinct possiblity given the way that you'd described him as being reckless. However, if this was the case, would the SWA really want him? Heck, if that were the case how did he get into the GSG-9 in the first place? The screening processes for units like that one aren't easy to get too.

Well, that was what it was going to be at one point. It later got switched to the end of Volume Five. There was some discussion on the issue in the discusson thread.

As for the characters, do you mind posting them here so that people can take a look at them? At this point I think it would be a good idea to make it Standard Operating Procedure for OC characters to be subject to an evaluation and approval process that all active players may take part in.

Although I guess in a way that makes it seem kind of unfair that I got my OC fratello involved without ever going through much scrutiny...

yours was created specifically for the RPG, though. Mine are in a fic, which is why I only wanna do short cameos.
I posted their dossiers here (first post after the thread started up)

It's possible I might be able to accomadate some cameos after I take some time to read through your fic (it seems short enough that I can do that). However, it's generally my policy to discourage appearances by fanfic characters. I'd kind of prefer not to if possible.

As for my characters being created specifically for the RPG -yes, that's true, but the evaluation and screening process is something I plan to implement for all characters, including the ones specifically for the RPG.

BTW, on another note, 3klicks said he can't play Jean/Rico regularly and has given me permission to find a replacement. When I asked if he had any suggestions for a replacement (I often find I get better results approaching specific people then asking for a volunteer from the population at large) he said you came to mind. Are you interested?

West Nile: Why don't you start looking into trying to create an OC fratello or support character? I'll admit that it would probably be a while before they could get involved, due to having to wait for a good moment to introduce new characters, but that way you wouldn't have to worry about rules against characters who have already appeared in fanfiction or whether or not another player was interested in a character.

Also, as far as Jean/Rico specifically, they're important characters, and I'm a little nervous about giving Jean to a player who I think may really dislike him (maybe that's not the case, but the fact that your OC fanfic character despises him suggests that). I think he's got some dislikeable traits too, but I think he's an interesting character with an important role in the series. LOC has an interest in the Jean/Rico fratello, and there are also other factors that make me think he'd be a really good person to play them. Given the Jean is something of a big shot at the SWA, I think that's important consideration.

So yeah... if you want to get involved, why not work on an OC fratello or support character? (Well, other then the fact that I haven't posted up some new character development guidelines I'm planning to do up -I'm hoping to post them soon though.)

Everyone else: Yeah, I'm going to do up a list of guidelines for OC characters in the interest of trying to smooth out the application process. I want people thinking of characters that will fit in smoothly without too much trouble early on. Anyone got any suggestions for good guidelines? (Keep in mind that since the guidelines may be something of a work in progress, you can also make suggestions after I've put them up.

Character Creation Guidelines have been added to the first post of this thread, along with a Character sheet to be filled out. Please note that these are different from the General RPG Rules and Guidelines that are contained in a seperate thread.

I am thinking of starting another thread that will contain character profiles for already approved characters. This will give players a way to quickly access character profiles without overcluttering this thread. (And it will also give new players some example profiles to take a look at.)

But LOC is already using Triela last time i checked, i make fun of Jean because i like his character Smile my OC hates him because to a large degree Jean is himself... ruthless, thieves hate thieves.

making an OC would take too long for me, sorry

Well, if you think you can do him justice, then I guess we could give it a shot. LOC is actually playing Claes, not Triela, but he told me via PM that he's a bit too busy to keep up with both Rico/Jean and Claes.

Keep in mind that you'll be playing Rico as well (unless the fratello gets split between more then one player) so you'll need to be able to handle her personality as well.

I'm a bit worried about whether you'll be able to handle playing a key player like Jean if you don't have enough time to create an OC though.

One additional thing -if you do end up playing Jean, I'll probably need to borrow him for the rest of the mission thread, and potentially at a few points later on as well due to his rank. I have plans for whats going to happen at that thread, and because of that Jean is going to need to issue certain orders at certain times.

Panzer: The most serious issue that needs to be addressed with your OC fratello is the handler's history. You say he was expelled from the GSG-9 because he sent two people to their deaths. Now, I don't think this would happen unless his recklessness was at fault (serving in the GSG-9 is not exactly low risk after all) in which case the question becomes 'why the heck would the SWA accept him?

Thanks to one of the other players, I do have one suggestion on how this could be fixed. A fair number of military units don't like to openly aknowledge that one of their members did something wrong even if they feel he did. For this reason, your handler OC could have been pressured into resigning rather then simply being kicked out. Thus, they may have kind of got rid of him without making a big deal about his actions around outsiders.

Oook then!

Name: Klaus Falman
Nationality: German
Age: Undefined (early 30s)
Appearance: Blond hair, blue eyes, good posture
Common Equipment: MAC 10 + M92F Beretta. Sometimes carry smoke grenades, HE grenades, and flashbang
History: Once part of the GSG-9 Team in Germany, Falman was forced to resign after an incident involving a hostage rescue in U-Bahn line. He joined the SWA in hopes of returning to the GSG-9.
Character: Impatient, rather rough on the edge. Has almost no experience with young girls.
Additional: Aside field duty, Falman is also trained as an interrogator of the GSG-9. His tendency to use the method to discipline Anna is imminent

I'm going to need a profile for Anna as well. BTW, I finally made a thread for character profiles for approved characters -you might find taking a look at the character profiles I put there useful as examples.

Realistically, Klaus probably shouldn't be joining the SWA in the hope that it will get him back in the GSG 9. The SWA is an Italian agency, so they probably don't have a lot of pull with the GSG-9 (which is German). Futhermore, didn't you say earlier that Klaus got a couple of his subordinates killed? Under those circumstances, I doubt the GSG-9 would take him back under any circumstances. Joining the SWA might simply be a way for him to ensure that he has a job of some sort.

Also, the weapons you chose for him seem a bit odd given his background as a member of the GSG-9. From my perspective, weapons more similar to those he picked for his cyborg would make more sense. The MP5 is basically considered the gold standard of submachine guns for counterterrorism work. As for sidearms, the GSG-9 has used a variety, including some rather interesting ones like the H&K P7.

Also, how exactly would his skills as an interrogator relate to how he disciplines his cyborg?

On a seperate note from the discussion on Panzer's characters, does anyone have any objections to the basic concept for a new character I'm thinking of playing in the RPG in the future?

There's a story behind said character, as she relates to my current ones. I've been planning to develop Piero and Diana partly via character interactions, but also partly via preplanned events.

One of those preplanned events (that's likely to be a while coming) occurs when Piero's 'little' sister Miranda comes looking for him. She hasn't seen much of him after what happened to his family (should clarify here -Piero was married before joining the SWA, so when I refered to his family being killed in a botched hostage rescue operation, I was not referring to his parents and siblings), and she's somewhat concerned. She's also a member of the Carabinieri specialising in undercover work (she pulled some strings to figure out where her brother had gone to) and is really, really determined. Not to go with too many spoilers, but Piero was deliberately trying to distance himself from his old family, and him and Miranda don't exactly get their reunion of on the right foot because of that.

But they eventually manage to work things out a bit, and that's where the relation to this topic comes in: Miranda ends up deciding that her big brother needs someone to watch over him in his new workplace and decides she's the one to do that job. As such, she decides she's going to join up.

Now, Miranda is actually pretty well regarded for her undercover work, and she's pretty damn set on her goal, but do you guys think its credible that she might be able to swing a job with the SWA as part of the support staff? I think she could be a quite interesting addition to the ranks, but do you people find the story of how I plan for her to get in credible?

BTW, as a note, Miranda and Piero share some common traits, but they also have some very major differences. They are most definitely not two slightly different versions of the same person.

His use of method from interrogating into disciplining. Strict, torture included at most part just to keep Anna 'perfect' that sort of way.

On the weapons, I just think he needs a small reliable weapon instead of the MP5. Maybe the MP5K would do the job?

I'm pretty sure there are rules against Police torturing prisoners during interrogations in modern day Germany. Also, while I'm not an expert on the matter, I'm under the impression that a lot of the really good police interrogators know how to vary their game -sometimes they'll act hostile, at other times they'll act friendly. It depends on what they think will be most effective.

The MP5K is fine, assuming you don't mind that Klaus wouldn't be the only person who might use one. If you're looking at that one, then you're planning to have your character use it for concealed carry, right?

ping-pong!

Yep.

I'm looking for something that could substitute a handgun and is easy to conceal but packs a decent punch. The MAC 10 is the reason why.

...then MP5K came across my mind and I think: Hey, why not use that instead?

I don't know if there are other small, concealable weapon around that could substitute sidearms.


On his methods, lets say he use either physical, or mental. Depending on the circumstances. He'll use mental terror more often than physical--much more effective.

MP5K -there may be, but an MP5K has the advantage of being able to swap magazines with Anna's full size MP5.

Something I wanted to check here: you do realise just how strong a word 'torture' is in English don't you? It doesn't just refer to hurting someone, it refers to hurting them really, really badly.

Post by Piero on Thu 20 Mar 2008 - 12:16

And here's a profile for the character I've been thinking of playing at some later date. Thoughts, anyone?

NAME: Miranda Contiello
NATIONALITY: Italian
AGE: 25
APPEARANCE: Medium/tall, with long blonde hair (which is actually natural) and green eyes. Tends to be very stylishly dressed. Would be considered ‘hot’ by many people.
COMMON EQUIPMENT: Usually carries a Beretta Model 85 Cheetah. This is sometimes supplemented by a Model 93R machine pistol or other, heavier weapons.
HISTORY: Miranda was the second child in her family to join the Carabinieri, following in the footsteps of her older brother Orlando. While she served a brief period doing general duties in the force, the fact that there were so few woman in the Carabinieri quickly led to her being offered a chance to try undercover work. Thanks to her intelligence and determination, she quickly excelled in this field.
It was while Miranda was doing some of her undercover work that her brother’s identity as a member of the Carabinieri’s elite GIS unit was exposed and his family killed. While she was rather concerned for her brother at the time, the combination of her work responsibilities and her brother’s desire to be left alone kept her from doing much for him at the time. It was later on that she decided it was time to check in on him. By this point however, he had also become difficult to contact due to his changing his name and beginning work with a highly secretive government agency. Nevertheless Miranda remained determined to find her brother, and managed to track him down in part due to some strings she managed to pull within the Carabinieri.
Her initial reunion with her brother did not go smoothly, however the two of them did eventually manage to settle things down and communicate on better terms. Nevertheless Miranda’s brother is probably a little less then thrilled by his sister’s decision to join up with the SWA (as a member of the support staff) so that she can ‘watch over him.’ Her opinion however is that it would be to his benefit to have her looking out for him.
CHARACTER: Fiercely intelligent, with a generally casual demeanour that hides just how serious she can be when she gets down to business. Also known for being extremely determined when she has her sights set on a goal. Has strong family loyalties.
ADDITIONAL: Quite good at unarmed combat, and also a surprisingly good pistol shot. Proud owner of a red Alfa Romeo Brera. Has somewhat mixed feelings about the use of children by the SWA, but this is counteracted by her strong family loyalty towards her brother (who is one of the handlers). In spite of her abilities, her brother is somewhat protective of her.

For some reason, I see Alessandro gettin' it on with her, and Petra killing 'em both. Wink

seriously, though... the only issue I see is getting the details worked out as to how she manages to get into section two.
