The Highway [Only took 18 years]
« on: May 04, 2015, 02:19:43 am »
The Highway

"Backstory Notes"
All your life you've lived in the town of Hamshire, a small settlement that was built after the 2013 Crisis. The years there were peaceful until a large organization from the west moved into town, bringing with it all the commerce and prestige of "The Deliverance Company" some weird mix between a courier service and guns for hire. When they hit the scene nearly everyone signed up to see some action, including you, now it is going on your second year with the company; you've seen plenty of action and violence, as well as most of the east coast this side of what they call the Mississippi.

The company itself is built upon and out of a local roadside church that most of the town ignored, or blamed for their misfortune. They have a pretty sizable wall built around a large radius that contains the church and some extra land to house soldiers and cars.

Outside of local events, you really have no knowledge of the outside world or the history of it. You're like a bear cub in a large city, confused but still pretty dangerous.




The rule of thumb here is to not be a massive faggot, treat your fellow man how you'd like to be treated, and I probably kill all your characters at some point.

No Fun Allowed!

Yeah I know it don't look to pretty, but neither did the original Highway, once we get this started and enough people are invested. I'll upgrade the front page without telling nobody. [[Note: The first IC post will have a butt-ton more color, font style, etc... then this.]]

Oh, I didn't see the years. Found them now.

W.I.P.

Name: The Speshulest Snuflook Drake Ashford
Age: 20
Gender: Male
Race: Cheese Mutant Human.

Weapon: [Fire Axe] [Crowbar w/strap*] [Two random stones] [Spiked brass knuckles (worn at all times)]
Uniform: [Standard Issue Deliverance Company Armor] [Leather longcoat] [Gas mask] [Balaclaba] [Kevlar gloves] [Kevlar boots] [Black cargo pants] [3 black shirts] [Tactical helmet] [Hiking backpack] [Duffel bag**] [Rifle scope w/strap, used like binoculars] [Makeshift shoulder sling] [clown mask]
General Inventory:
-Medical kit carried inside his backpack. Contains: Clean rags for bandages, antibiotics, strong/mild painkillers, and a plastic bottle of whiskey (for disinfecting wounds)
-****loads of string which he carries around for no reason.
-Dirty rags which he'll clean in the case that he needs more bandages.
-A lighter
-A glass shard with a rag wrapped around, making a shiv. Used for cutting items, rather than people.
-A plastic bottle of bark tea.
-A bunch of tarp.
-A few handfuls of twigs.
Perks: [Athletic]
Traits: [Myopic] [Hoarder (Why the hell else would he carry all that random ****, and have an abnormally large amount of pockets/containers?]
Skills: [Botany***] [Melee: 5] [Medical: 3]
Backstory: He lived in the ass-end of nowhere in Washington until he was 12, where his parents and him ****ed off to the east coast. His parents died at some point during that travel, but he doesn't particularly give a ****.
One day on his travels as a Deliverance Company member, he came across a church containing a crazy priest. The priest, somehow convinced him that Drake was a reincarnated priest of the Giant Cheese Monster cult, and it was his job to do the Giant Cheese Monster's bidding, and convert others to Cheesafarianism. (Don't worry, this is just for the sake of being silly and to continue the legacy of Giant Cheese Monster worshippers. I'll keep it from making him a SPESHUL SNOFLAK.)

*Carried over his right shoulder.
**Carried over his left shoulder
***So useful /sarcasm.

8. Have fun or my self-insert Mary Sue god character will turn you into a being made out of Cheese Wheels
As a Giant Cheese Monster believer, I would like this to happen.

So, I created a character who is amazing in melee but is absolutely ****ing useless in ranged combat, in a RP where nearly everyone else will have some form of ranged weapon and varying skill with it. His armor and medical supplies are probably going to be damaged beyond repair and entirely gone, respectively, by the end of the RP.

Also, I'm assuming Deliverance Company armor is basically just repurposed SWAT armor.

Can I be a goo-person? I felt like I should probably ask before making my sheet.
There is probably no more terrible instance of enlightenment than the one in which you discover your father is a man with human flesh.

CAN I USE PRODIGY

FUCK YEAH MANG!

And The Deliverance Company armor is basically repurposed SWAT armor, if anything think of the Talon Company armor from Fallout 3; thats what it looks like.

Sure. But you gotta have Asimov's Rules (but you really don't, just don't let the crew see you doing unauthorized killings).
