Somniumstasis
« on: September 04, 2011, 07:34:48 pm »

Something happened to you. An accident that permanently paralyzed you, leaving you staring, unable to even try blinking. The doctors thought you were simply brain-dead. You wish you were. It was some sort of horrific version of locked-in syndrome, where you couldn't even blink, couldn't even try communicating with the outside world. You silently waited for someone to kill you, just to get out of this horrible mess. That's when you started to dream. You dreamed with your eyes open, seeing a shadowy depiction of the world. They were nightmares, but it was good to be able to move around again. That's when they started to blur between reality.

Righto.

It'd be interesting if every time you made a character with amnesia you got movie-style amnesia.

Name: Raeol
Age 16
Accident: The wrong medicine
Personality: Optimistic, too trusting
Back-story: was doing really well at school, though not much of an athlete he made up for it with his studies, specifically he enjoyed chemistry and physics. Unfortunately when he went to hospital for a cancer operation, they gave him something he was deathly allergic to.

Name: Desmond Gray
Age: 24
Accident: Overdose
Personality: Melancholic and sarcastic. Pretty friendly to most people. Supressed anger. (<--real life feelings IMHO :'( )
Backstory: Desmond Grey started going down the drain a long time ago-maybe it was when his mother left him, or when he gave up trying to better himself, embracing bitterness, apathy and self pity-perhaps it was something in his genetics, or an act of a fickle, laughing God that made him the way he was...He eventually decided it was better down in the dark and the cold, rather than the light...and one day, he went too far down, and didn't come back up.

Why not, it never hurts to have another GM doing hard work for you when you're bored. :P

Name: 'Tarran' Johnson Williams Smith.
Age: 23
Accident: Shrapnel from dysfunctional ammo exploding.
Personality: Brave, friendly, likes jokes, trusting, calm.
Backstory: During a war, Tarran temporarily took a job as an artillery ammo loader (the previous one having bit the bullet from a enemy artillery round). Not being experienced (he is a infantryman), Tarran didn't notice something wrong with the round. This was a horrible mistake, because as soon as the round was fired the artillery battery exploded, killing most around, and maiming the rest, including Tarran.

Quote from: Phantom
Unknown to most but the insane and the mystics, Tarran is actually Earth itself, as Earth is sentient like that planet in Avatar. Originally Earth used names such as Terra on the internet, but to protect it's identity it changed letters, now becoming the Tarran you know today.
Quote from: Ze Spy
Tarran has the "Tarran Bug", a bug which causes the affected character to repeatedly hit teammates while dual-wielding instead of whatever the hell he is shooting at.

Name:  Larry "Toaster" Davis
Age:  31
Accident:  Close-range explosion (see backstory)
Personality:  Loner, dangerous, anti-social
Backstory:  Larry lived by himself with no friends, working part time at a farm supply store.  The main reason he took that job was so he could steal fertilizer to make explosives with, for he was a serial arsonist.  His hate for people manifested in buring down buildings.  He intended to make one big final explosion, but an accident in preparing the bomb left him in this condition.  It hasn't helped his outlook on life.

HMR stands for Hazardous Materials Requisition, not Horrible Massive Ruination, though I can understand how one could get confused.

Name: Mortimer LeChance
Age: 32
Accident: Bitten by a diseased wolverine, contracted mad wolverine disease.
Personality: Unstable, Insane, Noble, Heroic
Backstory: Mortimer is a long time student of the Arkham university (which apparently exists in his basement), though after a getting into an argument with his professor (who apparently doubles as a mop) he stormed away, never to return. Instead he decided to carry out his long hidden goal of becoming a SUPER-HERO! To this end he covered himself in meat sauce and sat around a nuclear reactor (which apparently looks like a big tree) until something bit him and gave him powers beyond imagination. Apparently frothing at the mouth and severe tremors are powers beyond imagination.

Seven is a bit much...

Sorry, but I gotta limit it a little. Draignean, you are out, and Toaster, you are out.

That brings us down to five people, which is acceptable.

I'll be writing up a turn.
