We are a literate, intermediate to advanced AU Transformers RPG Based off of the first season of TFP with dashes of other incarnations sprinkled here or there. Characters from any continuity are welcome however must be restyled to match the TFPrime universe.
Active, with ongoing plotlines, we are always willing to integrate new characters into storylines once incorporated into the setting.
So I'm a bit nervous bringing things up on this but hopefully the concept seems decent enough to run with. So just to give a little background on the concept itself: The idea was to have a former Cadet from one of the Tarn military academies desert in order to leave for the lifestyle of glamour, lights and the speed in Iacon.
Now for my questions most are pretty simply and tend to run along what I'm going to with the character in building.
1. So for the first question is the one of would that sort of backstory and set up be alright? Just double checking on this bit before I go into writing the history.
2. My second question is optimally which side tends to allow the flashier alt modes/what I'm allowed to get away with >_>. Or if both allow them I know there would be some definite conditions for rolling around in one.
3. Thirdly and finally would there be anything going on in the plot currently that I'd need to know coming in that is not on the timeline?
Either way thank you for looking over my questions and hopefully I haven't been too much of a pest!
First off thank you for your interest in the forum, and for taking the time to ask some good questions.
1: That sort of back-story framework is perfectly ok, though we will need more details of course in the actual application. What lead them to make such a big choice, if it was easy for them... etc etc.
2: When it comes to alt-modes, and what is too far over the line, things can be a bit difficult to pin down. A good baseline is to ask yourself if this vehicle is something you would ever see out on the open roads in your lifetime? If it is a one of a kind multimillion dollar car with a custom paintjob that was manufactured overseas, chances are that alt-mode will not be accepted as a viable option. The point of Alt-modes is to blend in, not be the best of the best custom spectacular beast, unless that flows with the character's personality ((Knock Out, Mirage, etc)).
3: There are multiple plot points to keep in mind for when you arrive to Earth.
Autobots: Energon levels are exceptionally low, to a point people are on baseline rations that are borderline starvation. Harboring MORE newcomers is a scary thought, and more and more desperate measures are being taken in order to try to survive.
Decepticons: The Nemesis has crashed at the bottom of the sea upside down, and they are scrambling to try to regroup and stabilize once again. Megatron is missing, and rumors are flowing around like wildfire.
Both Factions: There is currently a truce to try to fend off MECH who has shown exceptional skill in capturing and dismantling Cybertronian.
I hope this answers your questions. If you have any further ones, feel free to ask them here, or throw them up into the C-Box.
