Hello! This is the OOC for Summoner's spirit, an open enrollment RP. no matter how far into the rp we are, we will always be accepting new members!
Now let's get started!
Summoner's Spirit is an experimental RP i came up with to test some ideas. a lot of details will change as i work bugs out, so please be patient.
the idea is that each player will have a spirit partner, and the spirit's power is based on their name. all names come in a A|B format, and either A or B can be switched out to change the powers. for example, my spirit, Orihime has the powers of thread magic as her name suggests (Orihime being Japanese for "Weaving Princess"). Orihime is separated into two parts, Ori and Hime. i can exchange either part for the part i have in backup, Kiba (Fang), turning her name from Weaving Princess into either Fang Princess or Weaving Fang.
Next I will explain the different sections of the RP.
any text colored blue will be a post for the Supernatural Police Force. people who need to pay attention to this text are Criminals and Citizens, not to mention fellow members of the force. generally, these posts will involve Police work, such as tracking and apprehending Criminals. when off-duty, officers of the Force will change their text to Cyan! this indicates that you are not acting on the clock and are not subject to the rules or benefits of being on duty, with a few exceptions. when you are off duty you can bluff people to make you think you are still working, and an off duty officer still maintains higher authority than a normal citizen.
Red text indicates that you are a criminal! a criminal often works outside the bounds of the law and cannot enter a tournament or hold a job without disguises. anyone who is not in a tournament match must read red text, and if notified, anyone in a tournament as well.
Anyone using green text is designated a tournament fighter. only other tournament fighters need to pay attention to these posts, unless they are affected by the tournament.
Anyone sporting this fashionable yellow text is a normal citizen! a citizen is a neutral player, only loosely affected by other people. a citizen may change their text color if approved.
there are benifites and drawbacks to each style:
Police cannot earn name pieces normally, but instead can take one of the names from a criminal they caught when they are promoted. Police have a much higher authority however.
Criminals take any name pieces they want from their victims, but if they are caught that character cannot be played again and the player must make another to continue. the spirit on the other hand is free to be used again.
Tournament Fighters must give the winner of the fight one name piece if they lose. if a fighter has no extra name pieces left, they can fight once more. if they lose again, they are removed from the tournament until the next set.
Citizens have the lowest authority, and they must be inactive for a period of time designated by their job. but they are the safest group, and can earn money to buy name pieces from auctions.
the Character sheet is like this:
Spirit Partner: Name (Meaning) - Description (Extra name part)
Personality: (of your character)
Each spirit gets one extra name part to start off.
My Co-GMs will be Jared414 and BrujaLuna. you will take everything they say as if i said it, unless i tell you not to.
