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.

"...you may not connect a character to any canon characters not in play. That would unfairly bind future players who might want that canon character to a history on which they have no say."
I have a question. What constitutes that? My character decided not to kill Orion Pax because a political rival said to. Since this doesn't affect Prime directly, is this allowed? And since Prime is in play, do I need to contact his player?

Optimus Prime Excuse me. I was wondering if my OC could have minimal involvement in Prime's backstory. I was thinking that as the corruption in the government surfaced, a politician could have ordered his bodyguard to kill Orion Pax, the only bot challenging the system. The bodyguard would refuse the job.
I'll just edit it out if you don't want it. It's fine. Thanks!
Primarily what that rule applies to are cases where individuals want to work specifically under another individual, or be a partner on a mission, or other such things that force a character to KNOW the new character should they meet face to face again. It can also force a certain historical event to be canon to them, when it may not have been in the other players plan. We don't like that to be done without the character in questions consent for obvious reasons.
That said, knowing of and scheming behind scenes about a rather universally recognized character, is another tier all together and is alright! It does not force Optimus to recognize said character should they end up on the forum. Just don’t link it to a canon politician and you should be golden.
If you have any further questions, feel free to holler!
