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.
Hi everyone. I'm hoping I might be able to apply for Flamesnort. I have read the rules and fully understand that beast alternate modes are not allowed but beast like primary modes are somewhat open to discussion. I’m presuming that in all cases the alternate mode must be able hide in the open on earth, with the few exceptions created by canon TFPrime characters like Shockwave and Megatron. For the case of beast like primary modes, is this best judged as form meets function? Like if Flamesnort was before the war some sort of pest exterminator where there was a need to navigate small tunnels or even swim in mercury, would that maybe work?
Thanks for the question, gosh! Sorry it took me a while to get back to you here, things have been a little busy for the Admins as of late. As for Flamesnort though, we do take them by a case-by-case basis, I know at one point we had a Grimlock in play here, and obviously he's a giant dinosaur .
The only thing we don't really allow 100% is Predacons, so we'd need some kind of distinction between Flamesnort and a Predacon since he is a little bit Dragon-like. Also given the fact he doesn't have a traditional alt-mode, threads would be limited a little unfortunately - given he can't simply go driving or flying around Earth like other Cybertronian. Obviously we'd try to work around it where we can to keep him involved and active, but it's just something to have in mind.
Gotta say I do love the pest exterminator idea as a way to explain his frame-type!
But yeah- go ahead and send in an application if you're still interested and we'll go from there!
Thanks for the reply. I don’t mind at all that people are busy, it’s cranking up for the season for lots of us. Since Flamesnort is originally a RID Decepticon and loads of them are “different”, would it be fair to say that his form is simply that way because that’s how the Allspark made him? No relation to predacons at all ever. Or would the path of an upgraded minicon / casetteacon perhaps work better? Flamesnort is very loyal to the original Decepticon rebellion that tried to free the oppressed after all (Or least pretended to).
As for an altmode, I was kind of thinking about throwing Flamesnort into gameplay just like Skyquake’s story, no altmode simply because one has not been scanned yet. I definitely would like to give Flamesnort an altmode, something British, and probably a car since the shared body type with Crazybolt.
You can probably go either route honestly, whatever you'd like for his backstory! An upgraded minicon / casetteacon may be cool, but then you have to apply more details as to why he was upgraded - don't have to go into super detail obviously but it will need mentioning. So it's whatever you feel like doing, really!
As for altmode, that's totally fine if he doesn't have one to start out with. I'm sure Knock Out can help him pick something nice if he wants ;D

Is it alright if I give Flamesnort the job of guarding an energon deposit ala Skyquake (it's mentioned somewhere that there a few Decepticons dispatched to Earth for this reason)instead of some bomb, and if so, how much energon would be left going into gameplay? I'm working out a detail of Flamesnort's history and having an energon detonation is within posibility. I have no idea at all if there is a behind-the-scenes reason for energon aplenty or none at all.
That should be totally fine, yup! As for how much would be left, I assume all of it since that area probably hasn't been mined yet (or they would've discovered him?). Could be neat to have that as his intro post should he be accepted, though! Poor Vehicons busting down the wall because yay, Energon! Only to find Flamesnort.
