    Before Time Began, There was the Cube. We know not where it comes from, only that it holds the power to create worlds, and fill them with life. That is how our race was born. For a time we lived in harmony, but like all great power, some wanted it for good, others for evil, and so began the war. A war that ravaged our planet until it was consumed by death, and the cube... was lost to the far reaches of space. We scattered across the galaxy, hoping to find it, and rebuild our home. Searching every star, every world... and just when all hope seemed lost, message of a new discovery, drew us to an unknown planet called... Earth.

    But we were already too late.


    The idea of a Live-Action Transformers RPG is a means for us to play out the films in our own way - fix the plot holes, change-up game plans, and play around with the characters a bit to see what we might do instead of Michael Bay.


    Usual RP rules apply


    • No god-modding. Even the Live-Action robots aren’t invincible

    • You MUST have a full bio written before you can play as a character in the RP. This is so other players have something to refer to when interacting with your characters

    • If you want to talk OOC, be sure to use ellipses ((Like this))

    • When fighting another player, give them a chance to have their characters react to your actions. Optimus didn’t punch Megatron. He attempted to punch him.

    • This works both ways though. Back to the god-modding, your character isn’t invincible. Take damage as is appropriate. Bumblebee won’t survive a shot from Brawl unscathed

    • For the time being, the limit is 3 robot characters and 1 human character per player. Please, for the sake of fairness, don't let all three of your characters be from the movie cast itself. As stated in the rule below, you have full access to the entire first movie toyline. If you've already got say, Megatron, don't go for Jazz too, go for someone like Landmine instead.

    • Also for the time being, only characters from the first film (Film and Toy-line) are eligible for play. We don’t want to see anyone trying to claim Sentinel Prime or Lockdown just yet

    • If you’re taking a leave of absence, be sure to let us know. It’s all good, just don’t leave people hanging

    • If you’re playing a spy, make sure you play them collecting the information. Frenzy can’t just known Ironhide’s battle plan out of the blue

    • Try and make your posts beefy. One word replies slow things down, which no-one enjoys

    • Except in certain circumstances, when there’s multiple versions of a character in a toy line (ie. Dead End, Mudflap) the on-screen version takes precedence (You play ROTF Mudflap, not Movie Mudflap). If the character doesn’t appear on screen, the choice is yours. But there can only be one Dead-End

    • Warnings will be imposed on those who fail to comply with these rules. Multiple warnings by RP mods will result in you being reported to the site mods

    • The RP mods are Wars, Megatronski, and GingaMagnus

    If you’re designing your own versions of characters, we obviously can’t expect people to be drawing in the movie style. Feel free to drawn up designs based on Generations figures, Prime characters, and other areas of the franchise with similar but simpler drawing styles


    The usual bio template will be made use of here as well (Human bios obviously don’t have to include speed, strength, firepower, etc.):

    Name: Optimus Prime
    "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings..."

    [​IMG]


    Faction:
    Autobot

    Function: Autobot Leader

    Personality: Optimus has seen the war at its worst, and for it to come to Earth saddens him greatly. Now, more than ever, he feels the weight of his responsibilities on his shoulders. While on Cybertron he was able to grant some mercy to the Decepticons, no such pacifism can exist on Earth. Optimus knows full well that in order to protect this young world and its inhabitants, the Decepticons must be destroyed once and for all - especially Megatron

    On the battle-field, Optimus is fierce and ruthless. But outside of that, he's rather withdrawn, mostly keeping to himself. However, he isn't afraid to speak his mind when he disagrees with someone, and is more than willing to stand up for his fellow Autobots against any menace, be they Decepticon or otherwise

    Weapons and Abilities:
    The fuel tankers of Optimus' truck mode can each convert into hand-held concussion blasters, capable of firing powerful, one shot rounds, or several weaker, high speed rounds, depending on his chosen setting. In his fore-arms are retractable durabilium swords that he can utilise in close quarters combat. Optimus isn't shy about using his fists either, should the need arise for it

    Strength: 9

    Intelligence: 8

    Speed: 6

    Endurance: 10

    Rank: 10

    Courage: 10

    Firepower: 8

    Skill: 8

    Name: Starscream

    "Sometimes Cowards do survive..."

    Appearance:

    Starscream.png

    Faction: Decepticon

    Function: Decepticon Commander (presently) Decepticon Air Commander (formerly)

    Personality:
    Starscream finds himself in a tight spot. Ever since Megatron disappeared, he has lead the Decepticon forces.... Unfortunately, not on a war against the Autobots, but on a hunt to find their missing leader. He's surrounded by idiots, loyal to Megatron to a fault. He believes that we'd all be better off without Megatron, who became so short-sighted, so obsessed with the Allspark... but he's going to bide his time, he doesn't expect to find Megatron, and if he were to find the Allspark before he found his leader... Well, he could sway those idiots under his command.

    Weapons and Abilities:
    Arm mounted null-missile launchers, and there are two retractable blades on his right arm

    Strength: 8

    Name: Brawl
    "If it moves I crush it!!"

    Appearance:
    Movie RP Brawl.png

    Faction: Decepticon

    Function: Combaticon/Demolitions Expert/Weapons Specialist

    Personality: Brawl is a great soldier. He might not be the smartest one at times but, he makes up for it in strength. He is loyal to Megatron and admires his determination and power. He can't stand Starscream for being a coward. Yet he will respect that Starscream is cunning.

    High Score 100

    "Master Chief, Ryu, Banjo and Kazooie... I learned from the best."

    Appearance:

    high score 100.png

    Faction: Autobot

    Function: Close-quarters combat specialist

    Personality: To many, video games are brain-rotting fun. To High Score 100, they are the ultimate teacher. The result of Allspark energy mutating an ordinary Xbox 360 controller, this robot has studied game after game, taking into account every move that the player makes in the game, every quarter-roll of the joystick, press of the button, click of the triggers, and press of the D-pad accounted for. By patiently studying how these behaviors affect the characters in the game, High Score 100 has been able to accomplish moves that most other 'bots can only dream of, including lightning-fast reflexes for martial arts, precise aim with most (diminutive) firearms, and a general mastery of a wide array of possible weapons. His personal regret is that, due to the nature of his alternate mode, he can only learn directly from what Microsoft can offer him, and he can only see what knowledge Sony and Nintendo (along with any previous console inaccessible to him) can offer him through the internet. In spite of this, he remains a fearsome robot, whose intimate knowledge of combat should not be underestimated by any Decepticon, large or small.

    Weapons and Abilities: The buttons on High Score's left shoulder enable him to project a shield to protect himself from harm. He is able to project energy beams from his wrists in the form of a "Hadoken", the likes of which are seen in the Street fighter franchise of games. Due to his training in a wide array of martial arts, he's incredibly fast and agile, surprisingly so given his gorilla-like stature. He's a surprisingly durable little bugger, able to walk off getting run over by a pickup truck.

    Intelligence: 7

    Claims:

    Autobots

    Grindcore

    Decepticons
    Swindle
    Thundercracker



    Name: Grindcore
    "In the end, when the war is over, we will need to be able to build up what the 'Cons have scrapped!"

    Appearance: 350px-Movie_Grindcore_toy.jpg

    Faction: Autobot

    Function: Construction

    Personality: Grindcore was originally an Autobot Construction worker, having a servo in much of the construction of many of Modern Cybertron's Architecture, and was, believe it or not, a bit unhappy when Megatron and his Decepticons began destroying a lot of it. Ok, unhappy is a bit of an understatement. Eventually, Grindcore got a bit sick of it, and joined up with Prime and his Autobots. Also, Grindcore really likes loud noise, like the noise of an alternate mode, a construction sight... or him ripping out the spine of a Decepticon.

    Weapons and Abilities: Grindcore has a large cannon, and in alternate mode can activate blades out of his heavy duty wheels.

    Name: Swindle
    "I have what you need."

    Appearance: 16e205e80.jpg

    Faction: Decepticon

    Function: Warrior/Arms Dealer

    Personality: Often forgotten due to his seemingly endless bodies, Swindle was the original design used for the popular 'Swindle' Class Drone, the popular military drone used by both fractions. This allows him to often catch enemies off guard with his surprising intellect and unorthodox tactics. Often mistreated by Megatron, Swindle has earned favour with the new Decepticon Leader, Starscream, by providing him with specialized weapons, armours and other tech from 'mysterious sources', trying to get in close with Starscream so the former Air Commander can take over the Decepticons.

    Weapons and Abilities: Swindle has a highly powerful chest cannon, which can disintergrate smaller Autobots on its max settings.

    Name:
    Thundercracker
    "As you command, Lord Starscream."

    Appearance: thundercracker__film_by_marble_v.jpg
    Faction:
    Decepticon

    Function:
    Seeker/Second In-Command

    Personality:
    Autobots cower in fear when they hear Thundercracker 200 miles out... just the way he likes it. Where is the satisfaction in killing an unprepared enemy? Another Starscream loyalist amongst the Decepticon ranks, Thundercracker hopes that Megatron remains undiscovered, so he may keep his rank. Other then experience, Thundercracker is very much similar in skill to Starscream, and both of them know it, although Thundercracker does appear to be (and is) satisifed with his second-in-command. Ironically, Starscream only wants a competent second-in-command, so Thundercracker is constantly tasked with operations and missions that have his rank hanging in the balance, but he happily accepts the challenge, not wanting to fail Lord Starscream.

    Weapons and Abilities:
    Thundercracker has an array of Missile Pods and Energon Blasters at his disposal, as well as a deployable Buzz-Saw, which he uses to tear apart smaller Autobots. He can project sonic booms that temporarily deafen any who are unprepared, allowing him to be a great distraction and strategic asset.

    Claiming Sam and Bonecrusher.

    Name: Megatron

    "Those who fight for the weak will inevitably lose."

    Appearance:

    [​IMG]

    Faction: Decepticons

    Function: Decepticon Commander

    Personality: Once a proud brother in arms to Optimus Prime and the appointed commander of Cybertron's Defense Forces, Megatron eventually became resentful of Prime and his more advanced position in life and the system that had been established, leading to a revolt inspired by one of the ancient Cybertronians known as The Fallen.

    One of his more recent schemes led him to Tyger Pax in an effort to claim the Allspark, a powerful object capable of restoring the planet and bringing life to inanimate machines, just what they needed to restore their now war-torn planet. Megatron failed to intercept the cube before it's launch and followed after it to Planet Earth, disappearing for several years. It is said that he was eventually discovered by humans and used to reverse-engineer some of their more modern technology, keeping him hidden away in stasis, just waiting for his soldiers to come and free him so that he may exact his revenge on the humans and finally claim the Allspark.


    Weapons and Abilities: Megatron carries two different Minicons with him at all times, one that converts into a powerful flail and another that can convert into a forearm mounted fusion cannon.
