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 (click to show/hide)

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.

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.

Autobots, but not part of the Great War.

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. :)

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
