Armored Core: Pray for Power

Armored Core terminology/history:

Armored Core- AC - Mech - NEXT
Lynx- Pilot of the AC
Operator- Computer voice that can be used instead of the Lynx's voice
Kojima- An advanced energy, used in NEXTs and some modern technology, very dangerous to humans.
Normal- An AC/machine that trys to assume the role of a NEXT, but does not come even close in combat ability due to outdated technology.They do not use kojima technology.
Arms Fort- Giant machine like monstrosities, some being the size of a very small country.

Background

More than ten years have passed since the National Dismantlement War. The League of Ruling Companies has taken over the world. To escape the pollution that poisons the surface of the planet, the League has built massive floating platforms called Cradles. Only there, 7,000 meters (4.35 miles) above the ground, is the air clean and safe. Already, half of humankind lives in the skies. The planet's surface has become a battlefield, where armies fight to control the resource plants that feed the Cradles.

As the Lynx War came to a close, NEXTs enabled the League to firmly establish its rule of the planet. NEXT pilots are called Lynx. Fearing the power and independence of these NEXTs, the League left them behind on the surface. The Lynx now work as mercenaries for an organization called Collared.

Factions

The League of Ruling Companies

A group of corporations that have banded together to control the world's economy. On paper, the League seeks to preserve peace and order within the corporate society, but the grim reality does not match these aims. Under their rule, the planet succumbed to rapid over-development, giga-industrialization, and pollution. 'The Cradle System', the current solution to the problem, is developed by the League in order to house and protect millions of civilians from the nearly uninhabitable surface. However, many people see this as only a temporary solution, as the surface-based facilities known as 'Arteria', which power these Cradles, produce more Kojima pollution into the atmosphere. It is only a matter of time before the pollution reaches the Cradles floating 7000 metres up in the atmosphere.Although this information is not public and only a few know of it.

Collared

Not much to be called a faction, but an organization under full jurisdiction of the League which manages and controls the mercenaries, LYNXs.This organization acts as an intermediary between the LYNXs and the League, setting up contracts and missions for the mercenaries.

LineArk

The largest surface-based power on earth. Line Ark is a maritime city-state formed by those who oppose the League and their Cradle system. They advocate freedom and democracy and appears to be fighting for a just cause. However, their motto of 'accepting all who wish to enter' has attracted a large number of unfavorable and undesirable types, which has led to slow decay of their government and society, leaving little of their original ideas and dreams remaining.

ORCA

A mysterious group that operates outside the League's rule.They are against the league's "Out of Sight, Out of Mind" approach of solving the pollution problem. They believe that the pollution will kill millions of people on the ground, and it will eventually become so bad that even the cradles will be affected. They believe that forcing humanity into outer space is the only way to keep them alive. They are composed of several top-class LYNXs and seem to possess a military strength that can match the League's.

Corporations

Bernard and Felix Foundation: An integrated military company that has an adversarial relationship with GA. Characterized by highly precise and sophisticated armaments, they traditionally enjoy close ties with Rosenthal.

Eqbal: An industrial integrated enterprise. Eqbal is known for their solid mass-production system and for unique and unconventional weapons. As its name suggests the corporation is based somewhere in the Middle East.

Global Armaments: The greatest integrated military company in the Pacific Rim economic region. GA has a solid reputation for practical and stable armaments and their arms are characterized by simple strength, and have a strong military favor. GA has an adversarial relationship with Bernard and Felix Foundation.

Rayleonard: An emerging energy company based in Northern Canada that occupies an important place in the development of the Kojima Technology, which is an essential technology of AC units.

Rosenthal: A military company that was derived from a huge industrial conglomerate.

Interior Union: A European Company that focuses mostly on power and enegry based mechas.Their mech types are very energy efficient.They also produce mostly plasma and laser oriented weapons and are competing with Omer Science and GA in this industry.They also built a water based armsfort named Stigro, an assualt armsfort.

Torus: Torus a comapny that focuse on kojima styled engines and generated heavy parts, They have ties to GA and have supplied renegade members -Orca- with technological devices for NEXTs, Namely the "Assualt cannon" a powerful tool that takes up all back space and focuses an assualt armour burst with more damage.They are a small company and not generally well known.They fell behind other companies and are not in a very good position as they once were.

Couger: A company that builds mostly engines and rocket based items along with boosters


Subsidiaries & Minor Companies

Akvavit: A new company in strong partnership with both Rayleonard and GAE. They are in strong competition with Omer Science Technology for the development of Kojima technology and weaponry.

MSAC International: Considered by most to be a complete subsidiary of GA, MSAC International is currently the main manufacturer of Missile-type weapons for Nexts.

Technocrat: A small company with Eqbal, the main manufacturer of rocket-type weapons for nexts.

Omer Science and Technology: A newer company that is a partner with Rosenthal, They side with GA in order to eliminate their Kojima technology rival Akvavit.

You may use some of the characters as a basis for creating your own, but it cannot be the exact same.You can use their names, maybe their NEXT and operator but nothing more.I will post my own as an example soon.I also wanted to design the RP in such a way that your character can be destroyed and can no longer post after his/her 'last words', but I do not know how to go about doing this.Any suggestions on that/anything, please post.

Edit: I forgot to say that you wont get in with a bad application.

Lynx name: Leonhardt
NEXT name: Noblesse Oblige
Operator name: Janette
Operator gender: Female
Faction: The League, Omer Science and Technology
NEXT Info
Weapons: Standard medium range machine gun on left arm, experimental custom kojima/laser blade on right arm made out of titanium.Specially given to him by Omer Science for being the top ranked and only Original in Omer Science.The weapon is difficult to control but suits Leonhardt's playstyle.It has three specific modes.The most common being the laser blade, being easily one of the best, it can slash through most materials like butter.The other mode is a kojima blade, Leonhardt has never used this as it causes heavy kojima contamination because of how powerful it is and considering civilians safety first hand he hopes to never use it.But Omer Science continually reminds him about it, as if trying to appeal to Leonhardt's lust for power.Even once they threatened to take the blade off of him for not using its third mode which lets out small amounts of kojima radiation.The third mode is like a sort of circular disk that flies towards where it is aimed, it gives off a sapphire blue like appearance.On the NEXTs shoulder is a standard, but mini sized version of a missile launcher, quick firing missiles being his missile of choice.
NEXT Weight Type: Experimental Featherweight
NEXT Leg Type: Biped Legs
Other NEXT Part Info:
NEXT Physical Appearance/pic: Image
Lynx Info
Lynx Gender: Male
Age: 21
Lynx Physical Appearance/pic: Image
Lynx Personality/background: Leonhardt tries to uphold his NEXTs translation of "the obligation of the nobility" but in French it literally means "nobility obliges, or performs service."Leonhardt shows as much respect as he possibly can to everyone and always puts the lives of innocent bystanders before making any decisions.But this is ironic seeing as he always uses the Operator when radioing in with other people in the area.It is rumoured that he is a mute and that is why he does this, given that using the operator all the time is quite impolite.Although no one but himself and close friends know of this, even Omer Science is unaware.It is difficult for him to tell other people, and Leonhardt finds it uncomfortable when people ask him why he uses the operator all of the time.If a person persists, it can get him angry.

Leonhardt is a young lynx, and as such most other lynx consider him to be less experienced, but as Omer Science say "He always does have the last laugh...when they lie there motionless."Leonhardt mother is French but she lives on one of the cradles and that is why Leonhardt protects their power source and works for the league.He is unaware that the pollution in the atmosphere is growing every second, he believes ORCA is a criminal organisation, just working for their own interests of money and power, Lineark also.Leonhardt's father was a scientist, but died from kojima radiation when Leonhardt was still just in his mother's womb.His mother told him how great his father was, and that is why he always aspired to be lynx.Omer Science told him that his NEXT is one that his father designed years ago.That is for the most part why he is in Omer Science.Oblivious to the fact that it is actually The League and the corporations which just crave their own desires.Leonhardt is a very trustful man, but people know very little about him, as the first time a fellow lynx meets him is usually their last.He is well know for his skill and always using the operator, but besides that they know little personal things about him except if they know the true meaning behind Noblesse Oblige...of course that is if they believe he is like that.Leonhardt speaks fluent French and English.
Lynx Rank: #5
Lynx Flaws: Leonhardt considers himself a noble lynx.His NEXT is very difficult to control, as is his main weapon.Any inexperienced pilot would most likely kill themselves within the first few seconds of piloting Noblesse Oblige.Sometimes it can get to his head that he's far superior to other lynx because of this, but he rarely shows it in his words and as such others dont notice it.A good way to describe Leonhardt would be "Too damn proud."In the past ORCA lynx have tried to reason with him, but he would just consider them liars or say that they were twisting the truth, claiming that "You have no evidence that the pollution will spread".He fights for his mothers safety and sometimes it can seem like he wouldn't even care if the whole world had to suffer, just aslong as she remained safe and that is his biggest flaw.Despite this, Leonhardt always has good intentions.

Other: Leonhardt's operator has been said to be one that is unique in a way that is unlike any other.The operator talks to him inside his NEXT, as does he to her.She senses his emotions and what he is thinking and that is the way they communicate.From time to time it's said that she will act out of her own freewill and say something that Leonhardt had not intended.It is obvious though when the operator is doing this, as her voice turns from a normal robotic like tone to a very human like one.Many lynx are baffled when they hear this, and Omer Science has offered multiple times to have the operator removed, to which Leonhardt refuses.Although the operator does do this, she only does this rationally and never does anything that would compromise or endanger Leonhardt.Usually she is just trying to look out for him.

(I know in actuallity this AC would be EXTREMELY OVERWEIGHT, but oh well. If you have AC2: AA, try putting this AC together. Its fun to play with when you have the Non-Overweight code on.)

Lynx Info

Lynx Gender: Male
Lynx Age: 18
Lynx Physical Appearance/pic: Image
Lynx Personality: His NEXT was handed down from his father to him, and he contiuned to gather parts and restore them and custimize them the best he can. Even though he is very young, he learned how to activate and use NEXT's from a young age, as he had to help his father at times gather destoryed ones when he was short on help. Being raised this way, he has always hated the war and such going on and wants to put an end to it as soon as he can. Being a mercenary, he has yet to join any sides of the fight for now. Wanting to prove himself, he wants to simply work for cash and buy upgraded parts when need be if he cannot gather it from the scraps on the battlefield.
Lynx Rank:
Lynx Flaws: Usually, L wants to get in there and get out as soon as he can. Even though, this rarely happens. His AC is just left over pieces re-moddified for his uses. Though he wanted to stay a loner, he reluctantly signed up with the Interior Union faction because he need their uses and ability with energy based weaponary. Though he tries to keep a level head, he is easily upset and looses focus when in a heated battle if pressured enough.

That aside, being so young, his mind tends to wonder sometimes in battle but it usually doesnt affect his ability to operate his Mech. He usually ends up thinking about the love of his life, his operator Rachel, back at home. Even though they are deeply in love, the always keep it business-like over the comm-link. Well, except for a few times that they absolutely needed to... attend.. some subjects that are better off left unsaid. That aside, he usually tries to keep focused on the missions at hand, but sometimes thinks off course.
Other: Uses his Fathers NEXT and wants to make it better. He had changed it since he recieved it at the age of 16. He had replaced the heavy machinegun on its right arm with a Sniper and kept the laser blade. Replacing the backpack from two sets of missle launchers to a radar system to help out his Sniper abilities with a smaller rocket launcher. He still has the parts stored at his complex and can/will exchange parts when the time calls for it, but untill then he will use what he has attached now and enjoy it.

Ah.A armored core Role Play. It was only a matter of time. I love armoured core, I can't stop playing for answer even though I have completed it like six times...I know..I am a nerd-Okatu. Whatever word you preffer to use.


Name: Imis Harmony-A play on words, Meaning I miss Harmony-True Name is Rioko Emba but is known as Imis Harmony To enemies

Next Name: Mountain

Operator Name:Imis Harmony

Operator Gender:Digital-No exact Gender

Fraction: Interior Union

NEXT Info-

Weapons: Use a heavy gattling gun which was devoloped by the GA, Earning it in his mercenary days after doing a mission for them, It's a old type that has extra ammunition barrles attached to it's beginning so he can lay down a barrage of bullets that can take down any charging next or do heavy damage atleast. It fires heavy armour focused rounds and is rather primitive as it was made a few years ago, However it still shows reasonable effectiveness. His other arm is attached with a heavy duty shotgun that sprays fourteen bullets at a time and is designed specificly for next battle, Making it good at dismembering body parts with little accuracy required. Has a top of the range radar attached to it's back that was given to him to honour his aligning with Interior Union, Considering he does not use power weapons but has excellent enengry abilities that allow rapid boosting and long flight times-Permanant if not forced to boost around-His final weapon is a barrle like holster full of missles,Acting just like the gattling gun in Relasing a stream at one time,All going into the air before downing on their target, Sadly, Even though it's a new-Expiremental product ,it has insulting reloading time.Having to place one missle in at a time, like a revolver.

Next Weight: Middle

NEXT leg Type: Bipede

Next Physical Appearance:-I do not have a picture-The unit wears a head that looks at it's enemys by a face covering phyzor, Going down like a waterfall but stopping at it's chin which is guarded with a triangle peice of metal that pokes forward, Making him almost knightly in appearance, The rest of the skull is lined in a smooth material apart from the very back that has two long radar aiding horns to help sight targeting,Appearing long and jagged with tiny devices. The body is a massive display of of overall armour that starts at it's chest then ends at it's stomach. The stomach area being thin but supported with a number of joints and pipes that are in coated in scorpian styled steel so he wont be vulnerable.His legs are biped, Two human oriented crafted walkers in stature, The two limbs are light in amour but appear to be chunky at the waist to support weight for heavy-Middle lynxs. The joints all the way down are rather rough for Interior Union design, Look'ing like a hybrid between Interior Union and GA's styled mecha's, However the emblem that been stamped on them that says Interior Union clearly states it's a stand alone design. His arms are skinny-Most likely to not over burden the weight of a middle class mecha that it already has with the gattling gun and missles. The joints are coated in the same metal,Going across it and then cutting off,Acting like ribcages around basic looking parts.Is painted compeletly black apart from a yellow carving on knee's and elbows as well as it's head's very tip.

Lynx Info:

Lynx Gender: Male

Lynx Appearance: Imis Harmony. A man who is generally considered moderate in weight and size, Reaching one meter and five inchs so he does not appear too short or too tall. His eyes are said to be fake, Being cybernetic implaints after he lost the use of his own when on a mission a year ago and one of his test mecha broke down and short circuited,Letting loose a pipe that sprayed violent chemicals into his eyes. Since then he refused any testing applications. The fake eyes he has instead now are two blue orbs that shine up when in sunlight,Both having a tiny camrea that is no bigger than a normal mans iris to let him see. The rest of his body is coated in pipes and wires from where his body was exposed to the chemicals, Wearing a belt with three lunch box like devices that are connected to the wires and pipes that surge in and out of his flesh. His skin is a pale white from his affliction of a semi-Ill state and artificail implaints to keep him alive, Look'ing almost vampiric in tone due to it, Anyone who had seen him would reffer to him as a vampire actually due to how pale he is or the "Snowman" as a cruel joke. Wears a set of metal boots to protect his feet from slamming into things when making sharp tops in his NEXT. has a set of matching blue gloves that are just as dim in tint as his depressingly blue uniform.Finally Upon his head lies a assortment of messy, Black hair that spikes off in different directions, Look'ing stressed and annoyed that only adds to his sick posture, Threads string out in crooked lines and spiraling threads.

Lynx Personality: After his accident he became determined to show that he is not some "Cripple" and shows his opponents and sometimes even freinds a eager desire to enter combat, He does this in a sometimes humourously forward way as it can be un-expecting for deep thinking strangers, Randomly cutting in sentences to say "Stop nagging and blow up already" or things in that fashion. Is generally polite though otherwise, He only really cuts in if the battle is aggitating-Very important,Massive pay depending on it-He acts forward to his desires ethier way though but how he states it depends. Acts polite and gentlemen like but lose it if put under too much pressure. He is overall considered a more than decent pilot among his asociates and tends to appreciate the values of other peoples opinions along with his own, He shows little or no real greif over the political scenario in honesty. "A drone...that is what I am...as long as I remain a drone..be a good boy,Do what I m told..kill who they point at and take what they want me to take, They won't press that pretty red button at their chairs that makes my body shut down..."
The operator he uses seems to be in a connection to his broken vocal chords, Allowing him to speak in a very fake and electronic voice although hints of human detail are in the undertone of the vibrations and robotic like behaviour.

Lynx Rank:..You decide that ,right?

LYNX Flaws: This middled aged LYNX could be said to be a damaged item in the worser way to say things. After the accident and his newfound appearance he grew more and more withdrawn from people and more attracted-emotional- to his NEXT, Interior Union turned a blindeye to his strange affection to NEXTs. Beleiving he understand meachinary on a un-ordinary level. Lives in fear of his asociats who are not NEXT pilots due to the jokes and riddlecue, in a pyschological counseling session he was deemed "Stable" and there for still usable. He shows he is very aware that he is now a tool and speaks this freely but is cast off as mere eccrentic behaviour,Being ill-properaly diagnosed with Paranoia. sane enough to self peserve he does not take any action or nudges Interior Union too much, However in his Mecha words are not heard which would explain his withdrawal to it and sudden treatment of it's body as companion. Good person in whole but maeltreatment has put him into a sense of moral guilt-However he's been forced to adopt to a "Save yourself" view to stay alive.The only true flaws he has is being a victim as he hold too much fear to be rude,Obnixous or aggresive to the people who have that "shiny red button at their chairs"in the end this "human" chilvary get programmed into him. Just as before , Because of his already large sense of overwhelming pressure he can break down rather in fights or extreme socail scenarios, Espicaily if he repeatively is claimed to be lieing,Making him more rude and angsty, Although the more and more pressure applied he can end up having full blown panic attacks that lead him to erratic speed boosting to "escape". However he never leaves a fight.Never.Rarely loses his cool as he has adapted in some sense.

OOC: I just noticed Interior Union was not included, I should not just assume. Thought it was since all the others are there. So, Torus and Interior Union are none existant in this Role Play?

I have run thourgh this once again since i am such a bad proofreader. I hope that most of the mistakes and errors have been minnimalized to a respectful level,Thank you for taking the time to read my character sheet.

I havent read all of your application yet, But I saw that you edited your post for faction and then asked a question.Yes they will be included, I just dont have any information on them to put into the RP.I mean I got most of the companies and I know theres even more im missing, but I just couldnt find info on them.If you wanna use one thats not listed or know of information about others, please just post it and ill include it in the RP.You can be interior union, just try and find something about them.

It would be nice if you could do this because someone may join the RP who dont even know what armored core is, and it would be kinda lame if they are not enjoying it as much as us because they dont understand some little bits and bobs, ya know?

Postby Statement on Sun Dec 20, 2009 2:46 pm

Well,I am not really up to date with all the history of Interior Union but this what I do know from the Game Armored Core: For Answer about the two Companies I have mentioned.

Interior Union: A eroupian Company that focuses mostly on power and enegry based mechas- In For Answer there peices are great for middle mech capacity along with enengry cost-They also produce mostly plasma and laser oriented weapons and in competing with Omer Science and GA other more main corporations.Their designs normally appear smooth what I have seen and somewhat stylish,Nothing like GA's boxman designs.They also built a water based armsfort named Stigro a assualt armsfort-Also in a playthourgh you offered pay to attack a naval base which would suggest they have good enough navy to fuss about-



-Sub-Companies, Ones that hide behide bigger corporations,Torus is a lumped with GA useually but is technically a independant branch-it proved this by selling the assualt cannon to Orca-
Torus: Torus a comapny that focuse on kojama styled engines and generated heavy parts, They have ties to GA and have supplied renegade members-Orca- with technological devices for NEXT, Namely the "Assualt cannon a powerful tool that takes up all back space and focuses a assualt armour burst with more damage and fires it-They are a small company and not generally well known.They fell behide other companies and are not in a very good position as they once were.

Couger: A company that builds mostly engines and rocket based items along with boosters-I do not have any more info on them-

-Lone group-
Lilianna-Not sure if spelt correctly-: This is a very small and not greatly known terroist group that claims to stand for the same values or at least roughly the same values as ORCA. They are mainly known for taking cradle 21 but was wiped out by a Lynx-However who says we can't say one or a few got away and recruited a lynx,Huh?-In their current state they only have normals and next based drones.-Next based drones by the way are no better than normals but can weild laser blades and are very stubborn to die compaired to other normal units-Oldking also uses these I beleive, More of a terriost choice than a league-

-Off the record NEXT mercenarys-
Blue Irregulare: A blue Irregulare is a mercenary that has no real specific alliance to any major organisation and all generally NEXT's or LYNX's. These are basically collards but at no point do you face a Blue Irregulare in the orderd Matchs this would suggests that these are un-official, Not on paper and off the record nexts. They tend to be acually rather powerful as it comes along with NEXTS, Showing aviablility to Kojama Missles and being reffered to as "First Class NEXTS" By Obless Oblige-The pilote in the game, Not our host of this Forum- in the defence of a cradle enengry plant which would assume they vary from ranks like Collards NEXTS.

-Regiment,Sort of like special ops NORMAL'S for Algebra-
Bharat Squard: Bharate Squadron is a entirly focused NORMAL team of pilots. From what is suggested by the dialogue in the game this squadron is serious despite being a NORMAL set of troopers. So serious infact that you are paid to target them as a part of your mission obejective. These NORMALS can stand up to a LYNX and take it down if it makes the wrong moves when in teams, They use basic and predictable NORMALS but are good at all round tactically taking someone down-Even I, In a raylonard got into the wrong turn when fighting these,Stunned and was cut down into half my health-They also have a NEXT with them in one account but if this NEXT is actually apart of this unit or a hired-Or affliated with the unit's company is un-clear. On a side note however when th NEXT shows up he says this-"GA scum" and then"Hunt them down.Drive them into the dirt..."-He gave orders to the squadron and tended to jump and have reveresed legs like the rocket based NORMAL'S in the unit. This would suggest he may be a member of the squadron but the title of lynx is but a commando-Seargent,Commanding figure-to them.This unit is a member of Algebra's Garrison.NEXT'S involment to the unit confirmed.The unit after I re-run to kill him spoke the words "Danm you. You dare to go against Algebra" showing passion-?-to the company.So if you are on Algebra's side as a NEXT and NORMAL's Role Player's join, You may have the choice of assuming command.Over Bharat Squadron.By lore anyway.

That is all I know. I am sorry if the information I have provided is not very helpful, I will edit the couger slot later when and if I manage to cacth more information on them. Thank you for replieing to my question.

((I edited My character sheet slightly adding a battle history, it explains how he obtained his nick name.))

Application

Lynx name: William Loguidice AKA New King
NEXT name: Black Star
Operator name: Lisa Peacecraft
Operator gender: Female
Faction: The League, Akvavit

NEXT Info

Weapons
Main Weapon: A Double barreled Kojima cannon mounted on the right arm.
Secondary Weapon: A long laser blade mounted on the left arm, The blade seems to be made of a black condensed energy. The blade is extremely strong as well as unstable.
Back Mounts: The Black Star has been fitted with two prototype boosters granting it the ability to move at ineradicable speeds, but the G-force from the acceleration puts a horrible strain on the pilot. This is why William has been givin a custom made pilot suit so that the G-force form the intense speeds do not knock him unconscious or worse kill him.
Shoulder Mounts: A countermeasure system (Heat Flares) designed to prevent sensor-based weapons from acquiring and/or destroying a target. Countermeasures that alter the electromagnetic, acoustic or other signature(s) of a target thereby altering the tracking and sensing behavior of an incoming threat (e.g., guided missile) are designated softkill measures. Measures that physically counterattack an incoming threat thereby destroying/altering its payload/warhead in such a way that the intended effect on the target is majorly impeded are designated hardkill measures.

NEXT Weight Type: Light
NEXT Leg Type: Bi-Pedal
Other NEXT Part Info: The Black Star has it's own custom made VOB (Vanguard Over Boost) system that grants it the ability to accelerate at an even faster rate when needed. VOB can be seen in the upper left corner of Black stars picture. Black star is also capable of using assault armor, assault armor is a large release of Kojima particles causing a large scale explosion in the area surrounding the NEXT.
NEXT Physical Appearance

Lynx Info


Lynx Gender: Male
Lynx Age: 28
Lynx Personality: William is a very cold, callous, dispassionate figure, and is rather aloof, brooding, and indifferent, He refers to anyone he does not find interesting as "trash" and treats them as expendable. Despite this, he is not particularly violent, and will only fight when provoked or ordered to.
Lynx Flaws: William has been diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder from combat stress or other wised known as shellshock. The League had finally found a way to surpress his PTSD using Nano-Machines, although he still suffers from episode's from time to time. These episode's will send William into a fit of madding rage making William lose any regard for his own life.
Lynx Rank:
Other: William has been a pilot since the National Dismantlement War stepping in to his first NEXT at the young age of 14. The constant bloodshed that was his life turned a young loving boy cold to the world, his mind torn asunder by the horrors of war. Now it is all he knows he breathes it in with every breath he takes, war has become him, killing is the only thing he knows how to do and he does it well. Killing has become a part of his daily life but despite this William doesn't seem to be a particularly violent person. The Dismantlement War took his family from him as they died when his home city was destroyed by Kojima weapons and the radiation they give off. His little sister being the last of his family members to die, after suffering for two years with Kojima poisoning. She died on Williams 20th birthday in his arms.
Battle History: After the National Dismantlement War William was given an assignment, he was to destroy a small government facility in Asia. William had seen his fare share of battle and was known to be a seasoned Lynx at the time. William was told that the facility was guarded by a small array of automated turrets and outdated Normals. When William arrived at the facility he was greeted by a Ace Lynx Known as Old King. Old King led the former armed rebel group Lilliana. Old King was also rumored to be working with ORCA at the time, the 16 year old William was facing a monster.

It seemed the government was made aware of The Leagues orders to destroy them from a leak on the inside and hired a Lynx of there own. Old King thought of William as nothing more then an insect, William was ordered to abort the mission by his Operator Lisa but ignored her and prepared for the first real fight of his life. Old King was unprepared for what would happened next, William hit his boosters with full power and blew right past Old King as he fired his shotguns at William but it seemed Old King was to slow and didn't have the range to hit William. William made his way into the facility Old king hot on his trail, William cut through the the bulkhead doors with his Kojima cannon and headed right for the facility's Kojima reactors. William made it to the reactors and fired he then quickly redirected his thrust downward and flew right through the facility's ceiling before it exploded. Old King however was to slow and unable to escape the blast radius in time and died in the explosion. William looked down on the dieing King as he was blown to pieces and muttered "Sleep well King of Kings, This place shall be your tomb." From that day on The League took great interest in William, he was then on known as the New King.

You can have two characters but that doesnt mean they will be accepted.I havent accepted anyone yet.Im waiting for more applications and then choosing from the best out of those, depending on numbers.Also I am going to be restricting operator use because it seems way too many people are going to be using them.The only ones in 4 and for answer who used them were like the protagonist and white glints lynx.If I accept you, il say if you can use your operator or not.You have to clearly state whos talking and I dont want it to end up in a mess, so im going to limit it to myself and maybe a few others.Its why I added in that its disrespectful to use one consistently, to discourage its use/using it at all.

Thanks for the info Statement.

You are very welcome,Dacookie. I hope it was useful to you in some way or another.

Liike I previously stated if I come across more information on the companies or the historys of certain said companies then I will edit my post in accordance to my findings- If I believe they are not fabricated or mislead-

I understand your desire to cut down on operators, You seem to have a better eye than I. I never really noticed the other next not using Operators, I was normally too focused on what they where saying to be honest. May I add that my character operator technically is him as his throat was damaged along with his body in his testing accident, However if you deem it that I have to adjust his history so he can talk I will more than happily comply to your desires.-Too be honest I always thought a operator was a mentor-Partner who sorted out your missions and lead you,Like a manager-

Yes. It would most likely be that way, It would seem like a basic blueprint for mechas to have but what I think he was reffering to was the ideal that it would be messy and skecthy if everysingle or a very large majority of role players where to use a operator and their own voice. Note that it would also be a personal choice-If not forced by mutism like Obliges background would suggest-so the idea that all lynxs are shy enough to use a operator-if a operator is a voice muffler-would be a bit silly.

I dont think all NEXTs have an operator, because in the mission with Old King in ACFA your operator leaves you, so I think its actually a physical person/partner or something.Also when your doing missions, why does every NEXT that resembles a male, speak like a man?And the same for females.Im pretty sure its because they dont have an operator.The only people we know of who have one for sure is like white glint and the protagonist in ACFA.

It is kinda unclear what an Operator is in Armored Core.But for this RP we will just say its some form of AI, which can talk for you.

You can use an operator Statement, because you were helpful and I thought your app was good, would be a shame if you had to change it.Mind the spelling mistakes though, you make a lot.But the quality of your writing is good.

Thank you you very much,Dacookie. I appreciate the compliment.

I agree. It is properly best just to say it is a A.I otherwise people will most likely just argue about that on the forum-Debate even-and go slightly off topic. Yes. I can not proofread for the hair on my head, I useaully end up realising my mistakes after I post. I think I fixed them now, For anybody that like to read character sheets.Do not feel shy to point out my mistakes, It's the only way I will learn. I will try and not desecrate your Role Play with poor spelling and punctuation,Dacookie. I appreciate any paitence shown though.


I would also like to add that I have put more data on the smaller fractions and less known units from For Answer in the information I have provided up above. I included Bharat Squadron-So, People can be NORMALS that can actually survive- and the Blue Irregulare-I am still looking for Couger.If anyone has confirmed infomation on them, Please send it to me and I will post it on the slot to keep the thread more neat, I will reference the given information is from you though. So you will recieve credit for helping.Thank you.

Like I said all League owned NEXT pilots have an Operator, The ORCA pilots however do not. An Operators is a living person there to provide you with Mission info, your NEXTS status as well a morel support. Simply because some of the pilots speak for themselves does not mean they do not have Operators you just don't hear them.

Hope I cleared things up a little.

Ok I didnt know that.But we will still leave it as what I said above because I am generally against a lot of people having more than one character, and thats what an operator basically is if we define it as a human.It just makes it much much easyier if we do it that way.

And Operator, in this RP, could be one of two things. And by the way, this is just a simple suggestion and nothing more. Either it could be an AI system integraded into the CORE of the NEXT's or it could be a simple in-comm link from the factions they are with. Like someone sitting at a miltiary base controlling a predator over head and survying the battle, giving tatical advise, or just a simple tactician. Crappy example, but its the best off the top of my head.

It would most likely work the same way as it being AI because they only talk to you when your in your NEXT. So it really wouldn't matter if it was a person or AI as it wouldn't count as a character. It's not like the Operators hang out with there Lynx. So yea it doesn't matter if its AI or not the only time you should even hear them is when your in your NEXT any other time it should be like there not even there.
