    Ki Masters OOC/Recruitment

    Roll up! Roll up! Roll up! If you're into action, martial arts and fun, then this RPG is for you.

    If you like to join, please feel free to write character profiles in this recruitment thread.
    Questions, comments and suggestions are welcome here as well.

    Read on for story, rules and profile setup.

    KI MASTERS

    Story line: Set in an age not very much different to ours, is a world where Martial Arts play a vital role in lives of many. Of all the techniques performed, Ki or life energy manipulation became the most exploited. Wide was this ability, that every martial artist can wield it by hard training, both for healing and for attack.
    Ki must be not used constantly in a single fight, as being the lifeforce of an individual, it could have fatal effect on that person.

    In this world are seven major cities, each bearing a name after an animal of shaolin roots:
    Hyo City (Leopard) Suki Natikaro(Student),
    Tsuru City (Crane) Tsuroken:Suzakuyo Benjiro(Student),
    Tora City (Tiger) Toraton:Arthur(Sensei), Callen (student),
    Saru City (Monkey) :Hotaru Wu(Student)
    Hebi City (Snake) :Amano(Sensei),
    Kamakiri City (Mantis)
    Ryu City (Dragon) Ryuton :Anon (Sensei), Xikru (student),
    Each city has a Dojo, where one of seven sensei teach. Their students are taught not only in anything goes style self-defense, but also in the training of manipulating their ki, based on their will and thought. Such moves include channeling ki into harmless items like cloth and wood to make them razor sharp or solid enough to break bones, create illuminations like attacking beasts or even self-healing.
    Another aspect of all the dojos is that each one, not only has their fair number of students but also ancient sacred scrolls placed in their care.

    The dojos are at constant war with each other due to a long history of rivalry between them. Because of this and the fact that the scrolls should not fall in the hands of a seemingly immortal renegade sensei, Annual Trials are held one generation after another, pitting the schools against each other.
    The students and sensei will fight until their individual dojo becomes victorius, in which they would fight among themselves until one is left standing as the new sensei or as some students affectionately call Ki Master.

    But every story has to have a villain and that is the renegade sensei who seeks power, which can be found in the scrolls that the seven schools have.
    Planning on killing the sensei and their students to achieve this power, the villain runs a dojo of his/her own, located five kilometers under the earth's surface. The scrolls alone harbour a very dark secret.
    The students would deal with their coming of age life stories, as they prepare for the 6th Annual Trials.

    Dark Dojo:

    Here's the profile:
    Name:
    Age:
    Dojo/City (Dark Dojo for Dark Sensei Students, who can live in one of the cities):
    Height:
    Weight:
    Side (Good/Neutral/Evil):
    Ki/Chi/Aura colour:
    Appearance:
    Personality:
    Hobbies:
    Martial Arts Moves (up to 5 made-up moves, but no magic. Keep it human. Names and Descriptions required):
    Weapon (if any, could be anything within reason):
    Ki Technique (up to 3, 1 for healing and 2 for attack, Names and Descriptions are vital):
    Bio:

    Characters that can be chosen are Students and Sensei.
    Also, recruits that post the name of dojos in their chosen city first would have that as the official name of the dojo.

    RULES:
    1.No spamming or unnecessary chat.
    2.Human characters only.
    3.Characters may have a history, but still need to be in tune with the story.
    4.No use of magic or supernatural powers. Ki is the only acceptable power.
    5.Be creative in moves, whether Ki or physical.
    6. Imaginative (Anything Goes) Martial Arts styles are allowed, though keep them human so it physically can be possible to perform.
    7. Objects can used as weapons depending the character fights with them. But instant kill weapons like guns and arrows are not allowed, which makes the game more fair.
    8.NO GOD-MOLDING OR INVINCIBILITY!! Characters are human to the bone and could have their weaknesses and would pain whether hit, kicked or struck by a Ki Fireball.
    9.No killing off characters unless permission is granted by that character's creator. The bad guys would do most killing. But if a character is going to die, make it look good.
    10. THE GOLDEN RULE:Have Fun.

    All right folks, have fun and send those profiles in.
    I'll come round to mine once I thought of the character.
    I'll edit this as characters are accepted.

    Re: Ki Masters OOC/Recruitment

    I'm interested in joining a RPG, but I'm not really sure what to do. I have listed a character in the Characters Compendium, at the bottom of the page, which is believed to be human. I designed him so I could throw him into any situation. I was wondering if he would be alright.

    Since this is my first RPG, I dare say I'll be mainly using his manipulation techniques, prefering not to get into a direct fight. If he does get into a fight, he tends to keep it on the same level as his opponant. Hey, you could even use him for plot advancing, by PMing me what you want him to do. Perhaps keeping to the shadows, testing some hero's nerves.

    I guess that's all I can say here. I'll let you decide whether or not he's OK.

    The Madman previously known as Daniel219

    Wish I could get on here more often. *Sigh* The down side to night shift...

    Daniel219, if I well understood the concept of this RPG, you will have to try to make him fit in one of the cities and have him at some point in his life be an apprentice/student of one of the dojos, so you can always adapt in your background story the passing of your character in one of these cities and have him grow from this experience, though you can always have him join afterwards another RPG and use this experience to your advantage, or leave this part of his life out if you think things didn't go well enough.

    Though the RPG creator has final word, so I'll let him word it out

    Thank you Soldat for the well-made points.

    Anyway Daniel219, after looking at your mentioned character's profile, I have to be honest. He would not really match as a character in Ki Masters because although he's belived to a human inside a suit, he pocesses some spell-like powers which is a no-no in the rules.
    I don't think the suit thing would cut the mustard here either. No offence.
    He also manipulates events which would be confusing.
    He also sounds like a one-man-army character, which is also not allowed since I think it's fair that every character should at least mortal and definitely human.

    The conclusion is that this character is much better off in another RPG or better yet, his own rpg.
    If you can think of a human character that can fit in Ki Masters, you're more than welcome to post the profile. Your selection includes either sensei or student.
    Don't worry, this is a first for me too.

    Ketaro, you have the right idea. But there are improvements that I think can be made.
    Such as the role of your sensei character. Is he the Ryu City Dojo Sensei or the Dark Dojo sensei (who is seemingly immortal as I've mentioned), that has lived or resides in Ryu City?
    Descriptions are needed for your fighting skills, like for example, a double legged high kick somersault or your char doing a mid-air spinning kick and puch combo.
    The same can be said Ki moves. Now these moves can take many forms like whether your char shoots a single ball of ki or the ki takes shape of various things like arrowheads, daggers or even animals like dragons, birds, lion heads etc.
    Other Ki moves can be like the following examples: A single shot Ki comet that multiplies into three in mid-flight or a hot Ki shot that changes to freezing temperature to trap or disable an adversary.
    Please let others know what your fighting is like, as fighting styles can identify an individual, much like fingerprints.
    To my knowledge, the bad guy wants everyone else out the way, the most. The school rivalries are not really like a bloodfeud, but more like "we're better fighters than you and we shall prove it, even if we do some serious damage". Know what I mean?
    I'll add the neutral choice in for Sides.
    Also, please give detail into the character's appearance and personality. Simple descriptions like Average, very handsome or very fat won't do.
    Distinctive features, hair, skin & eye coluor and clothing are very important, so anyone playing, auditioning or just reading would have an idea of the character in their heads.

    That is all. I hope more people get intewrested in this. I know I am.

    Re: Ki Masters OOC/Recruitment

    OK then, I might just see what I can do. I'm interested, it's just I was hoping not to have to create a new character. Knowing me, I'd most likely start thinking out his entire life in about 1 hour of madness...

    By describing our fighting styles, do you mean our entire fighting style, or more specialist techniques? I'm guessing you'd at least want a basic description of their techniques (rapid, continued strikes, mid range damage), but do you want more detail about it in general, or just the specialist moves?

    Just thinking, would something along the lines of KI-Dash (character seems to slide through opponent, appearing behind them allowing the character to attack them from behind), Ki-drain (drains Ki energy from all people nearby, friend or foe, recharging him by how much he drains) & Ki-dome (creates shielding bubble of Ki energy around character. Drains Ki energy slowly normally, but stronger attacks take more Ki energy to block. Can protect multiple characters) be alright with you? I think I'm coming up with a character as I write this, & these look like good Ki moves to me. See what I meant. I'm not even trying, & already this guy's coming together rapidly...

    Congrates!! You're in. Nice profile.
    Question: Is student or sensei?
    Advice: More on bio if you can

    Daniel219, Some characters can wear masks whether you want to remain on or can be taken off, it's to add some mystery to a character.
    If you don't want to come up with a new character, then recycle your own as long as you can make fit into this universe, then that would be OK.
    Technique description is vital since anyone can have an idea of what is happening. The specialist moves only really need the describing. Check out char's MA (Martial Arts) moves and you'll see.
    Nice Ki Moves BTW.

    OK Folks, here's my char:
    Name:Suzakuyo Benjiro
    Age: 17
    Dojo/City:Tsurokan/Tsuru City
    Height:5'9
    Weight:213 lbs
    Side:Good
    Ki/Chi/Aura colour:Emerald Green
    Appearance:Lavender eyes, Short smooth light chestnut hair with little crest sticking at the front and streaks of yellows at the side, pale-skinned in face, long-legged and normally has a pleasant smile, which turns determined when in battle. His clothing includes a golden ring around the neck sporting five feathers, A white long-sleeved shirt with a small orange phoenix logo on the left side of the chest, dirty orange fingerless gloves, dirty mint green trousers and black sandals..
    Personality:Usually laid back, nature loving and pleasant, but when in battle, he can be focused and very ruthless especially when gaining the upper hand.
    Hobbies:Orinithology (the study of birds), Martial Arts training and hanging out with fellow students.
    MA Moves: 1.Crane Foot Jabbing (runs and leaps at opponent either from front or behind, and delivers fast stomping)
    2.Talon Takedown (runs and dives at opponent from front or behing, the arms and somersaulting over the body, taking it along and ending with a slam.)
    3.Graceful Bluff (Caporiaia like movements delivering kicks and punches that don't connect, confusing the opponent. However, a real kick or punch occurs midst in the confusion)
    4.Crane Spiral (Leaping in the air and performing a downward drilling double kick)
    Weapon: Feathers around his neck. Though they're used for healing.
    Ki Techniques:Screaming Eagle Flash (Creates a Ki ball which takes the form of an eagle of energy, roughly the size of a normal eagle, which is shot at the opponent)
    Flock of the Arrow Birds (An advanced version of Screaming Eagle Flash, where an even bigger ball of ki (the size of a truck's wheel) is produced and a swarm of bird-shaped arrowheads fly from the Ki ball, decreasing size as it empties the arrows)
    Angel Pelt Cure (Takes a feather from the ring around his neck, channeling Ki into it. Then, taps the feather's point onto the injured body parts, injecting the Ki to heal the injury)
    Bio:Originally from a wealthy family in Tsuru City, Suzakuyo' father feared that his son would be spoiled rotten and not become a better person, so he entrusts the Tsuroken senshi to take the boy under his wing and train him as one of his students and prepare for situations such as the 6th Annual Trails were the school's honour would be at stake. Whilst there training, Suzakuyo maintains his still friendly nature and fascination for feathered life.
