Vector Sigma's Masterplan [OOC] Transformers RP
« on: July 23, 2015, 10:01:32 AM »
Been mulling over a Transformers RP for a while now. Got a good chunk of story down, that hopefully isn't riddled with too many glaring plot holes :P

Mainly basing it on the G1 Continuity, but also including elements from more recent adaptations.

The group would be a GMPC and hopefully three to five Player Characters. The PCs are going to be newly created characters, so not knowing much about Transformers isn't a bad thing.

I'll post up character creation rules once people have shown interest :3

[Update]
Each character has four stats:
 > Body - Indicating the transformers size, strength and resilience.
 > Mind - Intelligence, training, and specialisation.
 > Spark - Roughly the psychological aspect, such as independant thought and mental resistance.
 > Cog - The characters Agility, and transformation speed.
Each Characters' health is the total of their stats.

Each character starts with three points in each. Players can then share two points into the stats (whole numbers only)
Lastly, the character then needs a base identity:
 > Medic (+2 Mind)
 > Warrior/Soldier (+2 Body, +1 Cog)
 > Dinobot (-1 Mind, +3 Body)
 > Triple Changer (+2 Mind, +2 Body, +1 Spark)
 > Mechanic/Engineer (+1 Mind, +1 Cog)
 > Racer/Flyer (+1 Mind, +1 Spark, +3 Cog)

Each character is assumed to have two hands. Each character can have up to two weapons e.g. Two Pistols, Two "blades", or Pistol and Blade.

The GMPC is Draliant: Triple Changer (Tumbler/HK-VTOL)
Body: 6 (3+2+1)
Mind: 5 (3+2)
Spark: 4 (3+1)
Cog: 4 (3+1)
[spoiler=Bio to be added later][/spoiler]

There isn't any Transformer Character makers, so if you want to find a piece of artwork to represent your character thats alright. Make sure to link back to the artist if you can :P Or just link what the alt/vehicle mode looks like and we can all imagine it ourselves :3

Well, I entered the old Mass Effect RP without any knowledge of the setting and ended up as the most well respected member of the council, so hopefully a complete lack of Transformers knowledge won't matter too much. Then again, I don't have nearly as much free time as I used to (as the players of the RPs I'm running can attest).

Put me down as a maybe. I'd like to, but I'll only join if you need another player.

Thats fair enough, especially as you GM two RPs yourself :P



Post repurposed to Character Index

Draliant (GMPC)
[spoiler]Body: 6
Mind: 5
Spark: 4
Cog: 4
Health: 19

Forms:
As a Triple Changer, Draliant has two Alt-modes. The first is a High Mobility Tank with a low profile. The second is a Twin-engine Gunship capable of VTOL.
In Robot Mode is is tall, armoured, with wrist mounted flame cannons, and two swords on his back.

Biography:
Draliant is, or was, a Decepticon. One of the rarest few with any sense of honour, besides Megatron when the muse struck him. Over his career in the Decepticon cuase, he has ensure that every conflict he forght was at the front, to fight his foes face to face.
Any autobot he defeated one on one, he let escape, but made sure to damage them enough that they'd be out of the fight for a while. He'd rather the chance to fight a foe who has gotten stronger, over having a list of dead.
As the fighting wore on over the decades, Draliants' empathy with the Decepticon cause began to waver, as he had been reassigned under the ruthless yet creative commander Bludgeon. Bludgeons tactics, and strategies made it difficult for Draliant to fight with honour, and he confronted Bludgeon repeatedy, every time ending up with some part of him needing serious repair.
As the Energy crisis worsened, and the vision from vector sigma resonating in his spark, he threw down his alliegiance to the Decepticons, and set out alone to be a real part of saving Cybertron.[/spoiler]

Cataclysm (TMTCJ)
[spoiler]Body: 6
Mind: 4
Spark: 3
Cog: 3
Health: 16

Forms:
Cataclysm's alt-mode a heavily armoured SPG
In Robot-mode, he is a towering cybertronian, bristling with point defense laser arrays and armed with 2 massive shoulder mounted energy cannons.

Biography:
Cataclysm was created as all Transformers are. This tale is nothing new. What was different here was an unusual "flicker" in his Spark. Outwardly he was as normal as any other, but inwardly he was damaged, broken even. He thought little and acted much.

Intitially he was almost drawn to the Decepticon side of the war, his easily led nature and incredible power a big lure. But the Autobots reached him first. Since that day, Decepticons have fallen in droves before him and will continue to do so.

He specialses in wholesale destruction and damage, either over a large area, or against a single target. Should a target somehow manage to reach melee range, he carries a large Energon Mace, which he will happily use to crush anything that poses a threat, or might pose a threat, or is in the way at the time. While he is more that happy to brawl with anyone, getting him to stop on the other hand can take a little effort.

Cataclysm prefers to engage targets at extreme range. Not out of any from of cowardice, but because the longer it takes someone to stop him, the more he gets to destroy. There are those who suspect that he has Decepticon sympathies with his love of destruction, however they are wrong. Cataclysm is loyal to the cause, because this cause allows him to bring his weapons to bear of those who deserve it.
[/spoiler]

Trenchgrinder (KOM)
[spoiler]Body: 7
Mind: 3
Spark: 3
Cog: 4
Health: 14

Forms:
Alt form is a large Trenching machine.
In robot mode Trenchgrinder is a hulking warrior with a massive chainblade arm on his right side and a large laser pistol holstered on his left leg.
His yellowish paint and with black hazard stripes is worn in places showing unpainted metal underneath

Bio
Trenchgrinder is built for heavy work he takes satisfaction in a job well done. working mainly in construction and mining putting his massive blade to use grinding through rock and metal alike. Trenchgrinder often works more dangerous construction jobs building fortifications and military complexes for the Autobots. Dismantling the occasional Decepticon saboteur is just another perk of construction work on Cybertron.[/spoiler]

Hellblade (Mkoll)
[spoiler]Body: 4
Mind: 5
Spark: 4
Cog: 6
Health: 19

Bio:
Hellblade is relatively young, and earned his name for his proficiency with his twin blades. He could have been faster than he his, but he preferred to train skill rather than speed, arguing that it was pointless being able to strike quickly if you didn't know when or where to attack your opponent. His speed makes him a useful scout as well as allowing him to close quickly with his enemies.[/spoiler]

Updated the OP with some Character creating info.

Weapons are often tied directly to their users so currently no special stats.

When I say each character is assumed to have two hands, i'm referring more to the fact that you're likely going to end up being in a melee, and that some cannon characters have guns instead of hands. If you do that, please only swap one hand :P

Linked to some random characters to help you imagien what your character would look like, and what kind of vehicle would work best.

Could be a good one.

I would probably something along the lines of a heavy hitter. Slow, but very very tough and packing a huge punch. Probably stays on the back lines and snipes/uses some kind of artillery.

For that kind of setup you'd be best using the Dinobot type, and increasing your Mind with your two points.
You'd essentially be playing on of the various iterations of Grimlock :P


Found a Transformer OC "Guide" on DA that might be usefulto people :3

Indeed, though you could argue Engineer, as the canon Constructicons were fairly intelligent, and not just bots that smashed.

I'm thinking relatively nimble, kinda like a Warhound to Optimus' Warlord, so I'd probably be best with  Racer/Flyer type. :)

By the Primes!!

Warrior and two points into Body would make you the largest and toughest of the group :P
And yeah, one arm who have to be that big chainsaw O_o
