Well, i have come up with an idea for a Transformers RP, with a plot like a really bad cartoon show. The idea is that, in the final days of Cybertron, the Ark was destroyed, along with the Decepticon fleet by an Ion Storm. As such, they had lost all means of leaving their dying world, The Decepticons came up with an escape plan.
Many lightyears away, they had discovered a signal... That of the All-spark, on a planet many lightyears away, Earth, where they sensed along with them, a budding civilization. Unable to transport their physical bodies, Decepticon scientists decided to transport the minds of all of the Decepticons Leaders and greatest warriors to this planet, where they will take control of key people. They will then take control of people and get the All-spark, before commandeering a ship and making their way back to Cybertron, then reviving the entire Cybertronian race using it. To help them, they have sent technology to earth as well that will allow them to construct temporary bodies whilst there for their hosts to use to crush the natives, should they attempt to interfere.
The Autobots managed to catch wind of this, and proceeded to do the same. Only sending their temporary bodies to attempt to fight the Decepticons. The plan went off without a hitch, and now, the minds and souls of Autobots and Decepticons are now heading towards Earth.
Essentially, the Autobots minds land in the bodies of a load of secondary-school kids and they are now fighting each other, the Autobot minds and souls co-exist with their human hosts, but the Decepticons have completely taken over several adults, all of them which have special pendants with the ability to transform into their Cybertronian counterparts at will. All of them are out for the All-spark.
You can easily tell who is carrying the soul of a Cybertronian as they will have a Tattoo on their body, containing the symbol of whichever side they are on. So Autobots have an Autobot symbol tattoo and Decepticons will have a Decepticons symbol somewhere on their body.
Location of Tattoo: (it has to be somewhere on your characters body)
Side: (Autobot or Decepticon)
Currently, due to the lack of players, i will ask everyone to make 2 CS' each. Also, for the moment, Optimus and Megatron are the only Transformers about, so your characters are yet to get their Partners.
Name: Robert Oakland
(Minus the sword)
Location of Tattoo: Back
Partner: Optimus Prime
Skills: Skilled Boxer
History: He grew up with a normal life in Scotland, It was just a year ago when it happened, in a strange dream, he saw a pair of Giant robots fighting. A Red and Blue robot against a Silver and Purple opponent. The red and blue robot was victorious, before walking towards him. "My name is Optimus Prime, and i am afraid that the Human Race is about to be caught in the crossfire of an alien Civil war, with your help, i can bring this war to a close quickly." Robert was caught offguard by this, and of course, he was positive that this was a dream, he extended his hand for the Robot to shake. As their hands met, a bright light shot out and Robert awoke in his bed, at first he thought it was just a dream, then he noticed a strange chain around his neck with a pendant with a strange device on the end of it. Just as he got out of the bathroom, his mother asked him how he had gotten a Tattoo on his back, rushing into the bathroom, he looked at the mirror to see the Autobot symbol on his back, although the meaning of the symbol was lost on him. Without warning, the robot from his dream appeared, only about the same size as him in the room. His mother came in asking what the commotion was, she said that she was unable to see the robot that he was prattling on about and left.
Optimus then explained the situation to him and that due to a miscalculation, he was off-course, he was supposed to land in America. Robert was late for school and went. It was when he was there that a man from the F.B.I. asked to speak to him. Robert was especially confused by this, but went to meet him. The Agent revealed that he was in fact Megatron. This quickly led to a fight, with both of them transforming into their new robotic bodies and fighting.
After the battle, Robert spoke with Optimus, who said that they needed to go to America to meet up with the other Autobots that were supposed to land there. Robert quickly packed up his things and set out, he knew that Megatron would continue to hound him, so he couldn't stay at home or his family would undoubtably be caught in the crossfire. He is now searching America for any Autobots, and the All-Spark, so Optimus can return home.
Name: Optimus Prime
