AAAA (Ask the Author Almost Anything)
« on: September 13, 2016, 05:56:37 AM »
You realize you're standing in front of the door to a small house. You have absolutely no idea how you got there, but that's where you are, so to hell with it. You turn around to try and see if the place is familiar. A road is nearby and a large swath of land is visible to the left, an open field. To the right, about 15 meters out, stands the edge of a forest old enough to have thick, spaced-out trunks. Closer to you, the land is covered in a random mixture of freshly cut plants, from clover to grass and moss. Turning back towards the door, you press down on the handle and it effortlessly opens. The first thing you notice is a rather average-looking boy, seemingly 16 or 17, sitting in front of a computer monitor, with headphones on. Another desk is also visible from where you stand, covered in paper with what seems like schematics and drawings of various natures. The boy swivels his chair to turn to you, taking off his headphones in the process.

'Sup.

I'm not much of a storyteller, so ask away.

Also for the heavy WiP Islium 3.0.

I'm actually the IRL Edgelord McFuckstain. I'm not kidding.

I had just finished watching RWBY and really, really wanted to make myself a character. When I was randomly browsing, I came across RPG and RWBY written on the same page. I then clicked a link, I believe, which brought me to the first RWBYFanon board ever, which I then followed to the second one, and then I found the post-reboot one, signed up and made my first ever character who was, as Xarias and Kaliot can probably attest to, ridiculously op.

I think I vaguely remember that character, and even debating the mechanics of the semblance or something.

And now for a question: why make an author avatar character?
Seek Justice, Love Mercy, and walk humbly with your God.

Character List:
Spoiler: show
Marlon Murk-Leader of Team MRKD (Marked) "The power of the night, the press of the storm, The post of the foe; Where he stands, the Arch Fear in a visible form, Yet the strong man must go..."-Prospice, Robert Browning

Cheri Chanson-Team AFMC (Afirmacion) “The people who were trying to make this world worse are not taking the day off. Why should I?” -Bob Marley

Jack Pettibone-Leader of Team JCRA (Jackrabbit) "In my body, where the shame gland should be, there is a second awesome gland. True story."-Barney Stinson

Cherry Chainsaw "Wake up, I'm a bullet loosed Into the heart of a wretched age, I breathe just to beat and bruise, an evolution of the burnin' rage!"-Miracle of Sound, Hell to Pay

Professor Siobhan Clannad-Personal Finance and Home Economics Professor at Beacon Academy "We can do no great things, only small things with great love."-Unknown, often attributed to Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Professor Feltch Hatterly Criminal and International Law Professor at Beacon Academy "Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere."-G.K. Chesterton

Professor Scarlet Vandal Weapons Engineering and Design Professor at Beacon Academy "Perfection has one grave defect: It is apt to be dull."-W. Somerset Maugham


Character AMA here, Personal AMA here, Character/Plot Timeline here, Descent into Madness here

If you ever need writing advice, be it for a post, a plot, or a character, don't hesitate to ask, I'm happy to help! PM me if you need someone to DM Grimm or NPCs, or need my Professors in your threads, though my ability to help with that depends on my free time!

Let's say there existed a weapon, or weapons, of unimaginable power. The power to reshape reality and maybe even have a will and voice of their own. How would your characters react to the discovery of this information?

Gus: Well, it's, umm... already somewhat a thing in Islium, what with the Kryal and such - especially if they happen to merge.

Otherwise, they'd probably treat said weapons as entities with 'people rights' and communicate with them as they would with everyone else. Maybe they'd walk a bit more on eggshells, but that's about it.

Rex: 1) I had never roleplayed anything before, so I figured it was the best way to get into it while screwing up as little as possible, since I know myself pretty well. 2) It's the character I happened to have in mind.

OH GOD WHY

1. I suck at telling others about myself without the subject having been narrowed down by asking a question.
2. I'm 98% incapable of accepting compliments. Instructions are burried in the Shitload of People thread.
3. I have no IRL friends (people I've actually physically met, that is).
4. I can simulate sensations, like how it'd feel to have tentacles for arms, with surprising accuracy.
5. I'm not that hyped about myself.
6. I really am a good listener.
7. I don't think I've ever had an adrenaline rush.
8. Given the right conditions, I'm capable of taking a human life without remorse. I'd prefer not to, though :P
9. I'm heterosexual. And starting to run out of ideas.
10. I have bones which are more dense than average - they're probably the main reason I weigh so much while having so little muscle.
11. I am capable of fully grasping the concept of infinity.
12. Apart from on here, I've only ever had 2 people give me a nickname. Literally everyone calls me Nathan.
13. I haven't swum in over 5 years.
14. I have very precise ideas on how much you should care about a potential love interest's looks.
15. I'm fucking ridiculously wise about some things for my age, and already was when I was 14.
16. I absolutely hate unnecessary lighting.
17. I adapt freakishly quickly in a variety of ways.
18. I determined most of my convictions through recursive deductive reasoning.
19. I know that the only way to deal with omnipotence and omniscience is to not use them unless absolutely necessary.
20. I don't really celebrate my birthday anymore. It's just another normal day. My mom still forces me to, though.

There. I've done my best, which is admittedly fucking horrible.

Shouldn't have double-posted, but I did.

Anyway, this thread is now also for asking questions about Islium 3.0, which is currently getting worked on.

Not familiar with Islium so can't really ask about that, apart from what it is?

Now that I finally have some real downtime I've been going through the HTDG posts before Diana joined the team in detail, trying to create a mental picture but I've been struggling with the voices should go with each person. So I was wondering how you would describe your characters speech and mannerisms (Rough? musical? Loud? emotionful/less? use of gestures? etc). Obviously I'm most interested in Brock but wouldn't mind hearing about your other characters too.

Islium was denied once and nuked twice and therefore no longer even exists at the planning stage until further order.

And, uuuuuh, that's a tough one. For Brock, I'd say mostly loud and rough.

Nathan would be... unusual, I guess. Not quite certain. Camelia would be overly friendly or pissed off. Anna would be mostly shy or quiet. Helena would be amicable at nearly all times.

Why the fuck is Camelia so annoying?

Jk, jk. Why do you think she's getting on Bianca's nerves so much though? Also, does Camelia know why?

Also also which 2 characters of yours would you pair up if you had to? Current relationships don't matter.

1) I genuinely have no clue. Maybe she's too good at socializing and it's putting Bi off?... Or maybe she wants to socialize too much for Bianca's tastes? Again, no idea.

2) HHHHMMMMMMMMMMMMM. AS IF YOU DON'T ALREADY KNOW THIS.

No, I genuinely do not know, please educate us ignorant people here Natendo. Don't know a thing, nope, nada, not at all... definitely not just me wanting to hear you say it.
