    Who here would want to do a RPG on here? We could each be a few characters. It could be really fun. I've run RPG websites, and RPGs on other other sites before, so I have experience with it.

    Any thoughts, opinions, ideas?

    I'll probably go with Soundwave or Thundercracker.

    Undecided. I also do Prime pretty often, but I think I'll let someone else bear the Matrix for a while.

    Well now that there are 4-6 of us, let's start working on when it's set.

    For me, I can pretty much do any timeline except for Beast Wars/Machines, Animated and most comic lines (Only because I don't read the comics and thus don't want ot have to rely to heavily on Tfwiki)

    My main idea was like an updated Gen-1 stemming from WFC/Classics with maybe some Movie/ROTF influences.

    Are we going to construct an original story, or sort of re-vamp an oldie-but-goldie? What's the ruling or thought's on OC's? I perfer to be as original as possible, but if I have to pick a pre-exsisting character, are we caping which characters we can or cant be?

    i think we should construct an original continuity with cues from g-1 that way we can still have establised caracter to draw from but we can also make the characters our own. btw i still call sideswipe...

    So pretty much this is the time frame, according to what we all said.

    Updated Gen-1 stemming from WFC/Classics with a little Movie/ROTF influences, and a large amount of Original/Fan-Made content.

    I was picturing both actually. We'd revamp an oldie (Gen-1) up to a point, and then we'd go from there.

    Well, I figured that each person at this time can have up to four characters. (Omega Supreme counts as two for being such a huge guy, and Combiners count as three, since they are big and you have to control five/six guys.) So up to three out of your four can be OC's. I would kind of perfer if at least one of everyone's characters were pre-existing but at least for now you don't have to have one.

    Now, I don't want to make this complicated so I'll keep it simple. There are a few that are obvious (Unicron, Primus, The Fallen, Fortress Maximus, Metroplex, Scorponok, and Trypticon), but I'd say the rest are a case-by-case basis.

    One last thing about characters before we start selecting them, use common sense as far as your four go. Your first one is okay pretty much no matter who they are, but after that just keep in mind your characters in relation to others.

    So, don't try to do Optimus, Megatron, Starscream and some random powerful dude. That's too powerful for one player. So, I'm just saying, keep your characters balanced. It shouldn't be too much trouble.

    Okay, now let's get started on selecting characters:

    To be fair to everyone, let's do a pick order. Meaning we can pick/create one at a time. Since I'm here I'll go first. While we pick one one at a time, we can pick again after two other people have picked. Edit: We are no longer following the one at a time rule, but we are still following the four maximum rule.

    Oh, and one last thing, you don't have to do the character perfectly, just at least 80% In-Character. I personally claim Megatron aka Mr. Iam A. Some

    Already Selected (This list will be updated frequently):

    I'm No Hero: Sideswipe, Sunstreaker, Shockwave, Punch/Counterpunch
    MattoMogwai: Mattotron (WFC: Decepticon Scout, Black And White)
    cybertron2006: Starscream
    Magmatron22: Wheeljack, Warpath, Rumble
    Galvanitro: Megatron, Ratchet, Larensa (WFC: Autobot Arcee, Blue)
    RIDUltraMagnus: Ultra Magnus
    Thunderchild: Hound, Cliffjumper, Wasp (Movie instead of Animated), Primo Prime (OC)
    Trans+Crazy: Barricade
    Ironarm: Ironhide, Springer, Wildrider, Blitzwing
    Sage o' G-fruit: Octus
    Prime_Directive: Soundwave, Thundercracker
    Crazymadman: Blurr, Prowl, Skywarp
    The Veteran: Hot Rod (Quite possibly Rodimus Prime), Grimlock, Wheelie
    Autobot-Girl: Slipstream
    Challenger: Bumblebee
    Tf rocks: Air Raid, Jetfire, Mach Dart (OC)
    Tyrant: Mirage
    Mr. Soundmeister: Towline,W.A.R.S, Whirl, Drivedraft (OC)
    Takeout: Bludgeon, Dirge
    UnicronFTW: Devastator, Lockdown

    EDIT:

    As submitted by Thunderchild, if you all can use this format for any non-WFC custom characters, that'd be awesome.

    Name:
    Faction: (Autobot/Decepticon)
    Position: (like their man job or function)
    Alt Mode:
    Profile: (a brief explanation of the characters personality)
    Pro: Either there main strength, exceptional weapon, or ability
