Thread: JX350 RP OOC (Out-of-character) chat and information

    Default JX350 RP OOC (Out-of-character) chat and information

    Please Read This First


    Well first of all, another first-to-read - FEISAR is in charge of these threads and as such his rules for Role-Playing are law and must be followed as such. (http://www.wipeoutzone.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7840)

    Welcome to the first WipEout RPG I'm running with the blessing of MetaKraken and F.E.I.S.A.R. I've not had a huge amount of experience in this particular field, but I do confess to having run a Star Fox RPG back when I was a lot younger, so I have some experience with sci-fi settings, barrel rolls and female pilots in jumpsuits just a leeetle too tight for them. I've done more non fan-based ones since as well.

    The idea for this RP, if you didn't quite follow the introductory post, is that there will be a season run for junior pilots (age 16-25) alongside the FX500 (Fury) league using FX350 (HD)-ready ships from a number of manufacturers, some with a large presence in the FX500 and some as privateers using old chassis designs built up to legal specifics.

    I will take two characters in this play - one being a pilot and the other being Krystian Atkinson, the man organised by the AG-racing commission to organise the JX350, with the result that I will be making most of the announcements on the races - but if needed I can fill a slot for the pilots necessary as well.

    Given that there are people here of higher rank than me, all moderators can assume the role of any important member of the AG-racing commission as one of Krystian's superiors to tell him to please desist, or if I'm away for a long while, to take my role.

    Races can be organised either by simple 2d6 rolls over a common chat such as on the WipEout rankings site, or by actual races on the tracks in question. This will be limited to HD ships for those wishing to race, not negotiable. Certain ships or teams on the tracks will not be available as actual HD choices, so substitutes may be made. Custom teams (if you are making one) should indicate which ship chassis is being used. Note that for monetary reasons, Qirex and Icaras cannot issue their ships for private use.

    All pilot profiles must be posted here in the same form as my own. Doesn't need to be too long, but try and do at least two or three paragraphs. Also avoid making too 'perfect' a character in the form of a mary-sue. Make sure there's something not quite right about your character, that'd make him dislikeable.

    During the ongoing RP, I'd like to try and keep as much out-of-character chat to this thread as possible. Big questions about the plot should be here, though feel free to add clarifications to your post using the square brackets. []

    This isn't meant to be a one-liner RP, so do not post in stage directions form, particularly not with actions outlined with stars *indicates how so*. Please put your post into at least a good paragraph, with good spelling and grammar with some decent description. Don't feel you -have- to meet the previous poster's requirements, but if they're posting two paragraphs to your two lines each time, it may be worth having a re-think and trying harder.

    We need eight pilots to begin the RP at least. The more the merrier, of course. We can organise who goes into what event, but I'm thinking keep eight pilots to a series, which will keep it easier. Of course, there's bound to be some problems, so if the case is with difficulties connecting, take it to me or do 1-on-1s in the specified format, and record your times. Best time wins.

    *wipes brow* Ok, all that's over with. Now onto some profiles.

    Pilot Profile:

    Name: Mercutian De Gautet
    Age: 22
    Nationality: German
    Team: Van-Uber Racing
    Personal Details:
    Mercutian was born on the Swiss border with Germany to an enterprising father with his nose in AntiGravity Racing. A fan since the F9000 days, and sad to see the season go, he began to enrol his more athletically inclined son into local AG-kart races and academies where the young man from outside Stuttgart slowly began to impress. Teachers often said he didn't have the raw talent that the best AG-racers were made of, but he learned well and would be a good pilot none the less.

    Mercutian is a very quiet man with an adversion to loud noises - hence why he tends to wear his helmet at all possible times, though he at least makes sure to raise his visor to talk with people eye-to-eye. He is a big fan of Zone events, though his actual racing lines can sometimes be poor. His determination has seen many comebacks from poor position, but it seems the top slot has almost always been just from his grasp.

    Racing History:
    After a victory at the Swiss National AG-kart championships he was given an offer from Van-Uber racing during the start of the FX250 league to stay in as a backup pilot behind Yves Touati and Loralai Sventa in the main league. When FX300 arrived with the mention of a junior league, Mercutian got the #1 seat at Van-Uber alongside a young Korean pilot who'd missed the cut for an AG-Systems entry. Unfortunately for De Gautet, Park So-Gun took the first ever JX200 championship and was instantly snapped up by Goteki 45 for FX350. It didn't help that with EG-X's arrival in the main league, Van-Uber got pushed down into uniquely fielding ships for the junior leagues. V-U's pilots either took the valuable junior seats or moved onto other forms of AG-sport.

    Mercutian got close last year when he ran Ishak Bin Yusof very close indeed to the final win, but he failed at the last hurdle when the Van Uber caught a lucky rocket from the Tigron ship and he was left with no points for the final round. He recovered reasonably quickly from this setback though, and began practicing even harder for this season. He looks like he will be a formidable force on the track.

    Personnel Profile:

    Name: Krystian Atkinson
    Age: 53
    Nationality: Danish
    Occupation: JX350 Organiser
    Personal Details:
    Always a man with a habit for trying to prove himself, Krystian used to be a marshal at Cubiss Float F9000 track, helping to organise the quick rescue of ships in the treacherous and unpopular ice caves when few others would take such an offer.

    The F9000 board of executives began to see the promise in the young nordic and promoted him more and more to senior positions around Cubiss Float, keeping him occupied with the smooth running of the event. It paid off, as before long more people became eager to go to Switzerland for the events that Atkinson put on. Another oddity about this man in he F9000 was that he was completely and utterly unable to be bribed. He would turn down any offers to fix races and reported them to the Commission.

    Though this lost him his job quickly thanks to Overtel's meddling, the elder members of the Commission didn't forget his work when they came to re-start AG racing twelve years later, and hired him as a chief event organiser. By the time FX500 rolled around, it was decided that he would organise the JX350 event, much to the applause of everyone save the Tigron runners.

    PILOT PROFILE

    NAME: Lucas Watt
    AGE: 17
    NATIONALITY: Australian
    TEAM: Xios (EG-x juniors)
    BIOGRAPHY:
    Lucas was a typical boy, albeit with some the highest marks in computers at the MAGEC prelim test, he never really wanted to be a race pilot execpt that if he did get in the FX-350, he'd be the only Tasmanian in the pro leagues. His friends and his father pressed the point by buying a Race Simulator from the commision for his 13th birthday.
    After a few years of playing with it the link from this particular Simulator was posting record times with EG-x sims to the race comission, and EG-X observed this, finally sending a message upon bootup saying that he was invited to the JX-350
    PERSONALITY REPORT

    Lucas is a bit of a headstrong boy, trying to prove his point when he knows he is right. Lucas is also quite likable, having quite a few friends and quite a intellect

    Pilot Profile:

    Name: Adrianna Zachowitz
    Age: 19
    Nationality: New Zealander
    Team: Triakis Junior Squad
    Personal Details:
    Zachowitz was born in a small island, but has recently moved to Wellington and has participated in most AG Racing series, making her an all-around pilot. To date, she is the only team who has been part of the 'Boot Camp' team and the New Zealander never takes no for an answer when it comes to participating in races, including tournaments.

    Adrianna is one of the most determined pilot and is also enthusiastic, albeit her mistakes she commits when navigating through harrowing corners, thus costing her win. Despite this, that has never stopped the New Zealander from attempting to grab first place, since she could acheive the win at any cost.

    Racing History:

    At the AG-kart racing exhibition for the first time, Adrianna was off to a rough start, nearly losing her first win. She was dissapointed for her efforts, but that didn't stopped her from trying again. Her second attempt was the same as her first time, but she did managed to gain her confidence and finished third overall in the AG-kart race.

    She was invited to join the Triakis Junior team, which has also boosted the young woman's confidence when she was pitted into a racing simulator. When she first participated the JX350 league, she overwhels everyone in the race by performing nearly perfect barrel rolls, and even though she did not win, Adrianna never lost confidence, especially when competing in Tournament events.

    I have WipEout PulsE (No DLC Bought yet) and HD with the FURY DLC Tracks if you needed to know Challenger 1. I also made a XIOS EG-X Junior Squad skin: http://postimage.org/image/141i82p38/ http://postimage.org/image/2lqtkeq3o/

    Pilot Profile:

    Name: Marek Al-Khal'ed
    Age: 24
    Nationality: Jordanian
    Team: MAGEC (Mirage Junior Squad)
    Personal Details:

    Raised by grandparents from Aqaba, who had recently watched the F9000 series before the season collapsed, Marek was taught and learned by his tutor in the AG-Kart, which had helped him acheive better skill and "luck", in which he relies on the most.

    The Jordanian is also an oddity on the grid of every race he partakes; while he is a novice pilot around the JX350 season, he is known for his sudden aggression when it comes to taking part in Eliminator events and is not kind towards other pilots, knowing that he has a short-temper attitude. Strangely enough, he is calm after he has finished the event and isn't afraid to speak during the conference. He seemingly dislikes Mercutian De Gautet of Van-Uber Racing.

    Racing History:

    Marek's first AG-kart in an exhibition race at Amman were above-average after taking his second place in the FX250 race. However, he was attacked by aggressive pilots in an Eliminator event, which has caused him to snap and retaliate by "returning the favor" for the other pilots. Despite inflicting such damage against other teams, Marek was unable to claim his first win, although fans were shocked to witness the Jordanian's sudden raw aggression right after the race.

    The MAGEC team found him to be an interesting pilot and that his switch of emotions would help him benefit his first victory at the JX350 league and its no doubt that Marek will do whatever it takes to claim his first victory, no matter the cost.

    I think it'd be easier if we all just took one pilot each for now. We need eight before the RP can really start going.

    Pilot Profile
    Name: Ben Denso
    Nationality: Scottish
    Age: 17
    Info: Born into a decent sized family Ben Denso is grandson to allstar pilot Jake Denso of the 2097 series. So far from his family there are 3 pilots (all his siblings) and he hopes to join their ranks. However he has been told numerous times that he is only good enough for the amateur ranks and as a result he was forced to train himself up...then he got the chancwe from FEISAR STUDY...
