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.
Heya! I'm looking into the board with two friends of mine, and we love it! It's rare to see a board with so much obvious love put into it, and it's a real treat to see!
Something we'd love to be able to do, but are unsure if it's permissible, is to form a combiner team with the three of us together. We understand that, in terms of the lore, combiners are very very powerful, and are willing to make whatever adjustments would be required to scale the power down, such as making them much weaker individually, or whatever staff would believe is appropriate.
We are all experienced roleplayers, and even have experience managing a roleplay forum, and understand that members may try to take advantage of certain things. We're not trying to do that; just to try out a really cool idea in the Transformers universe!
We would love to see some players try to take on a combiner! While they ARE powerful, so long as you check and balance them properly in the application it is something that could potentially find a home here. The entire issue really comes down to how you three make them applicable for a community setting, and what checks you can have in place to make it fair so that you can't combine, and just rofl-punch one hit kill anyone who so long as looks at you cross-eyed ahhaa...
To be able to apply, you will need to write individual applications, showcasing each as their own character, and then effectively a second application showcasing the Combiner's skills and limitations.
Some things to keep in mind- -What conditions must be met to Combine? -Can a character stop this? -What can an average NOT combat oriented toon do to not die? -Do they have individual Alt-Modes, or only one when combined?
A combiner in the Transformers Universe can be seen as a huge 'boss battle' type of thing that makes anyone on the opposite faction cower if they were to rock up to the scene. We don't really want a hulk who could just sit on Megatron or Optimus XD That said, the emotional and psychological effects of such a troop of characters could be really intriguing! And a focus on that is what Administration would love.
Hopefully this covers what you are looking for, but if you have more specific questions on what would be a red flag or not? You can always feel free to contact us again. -salute-
