Gantz

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby belthazar666 on Fri Sep 28, 2007 2:25 am

THIS IS NOT MY IDEA, I got it from another forum I am on and like it.It seems to work out really well so here it goes.


The time is present day. The place is Tokyo

When people die in the normal world they have a chance of being transported into a small normal apartment area with a large black ball named Gantz.
Gantz is like a video game almost.. Gantz gives you a target (Aliens) to kill
and he gives you points for killing them. When you die and you are transported to Gantz Apartment you are still in the real world. But you cannot be seen or heard by anyone unless they are dead like you and your Gantz Comrads. On each mission you are given 60 minutes to eliminate a Alien target with standard issued weapons (Note that the time limit work take effect in this RP)
Image
Image
Image
first gun:X gun
Second gun:X rifle
Third gun:Y gun

If you do not eliminate the target everyone on your team looses their points.
Why are points so important you ask? well if you get 100 points you are given the choice to...
1.Leave the game forever and have never died
2.Get a new stronger Gantz weapon
3.Revive a dead player
If you die in the Gantz world you are sealed inside Gantz Memory bank untill you are revived..
Each time you win a mission you are sent back to the normal world alive and well. And everyone can see hear and talk to you. But when a new alien arrives into your area Gantz will call you back.

Each time you are called back Gantz gives you a Gantz Suit that looks like this
Image
The Gantz suit makes you stronger faster and gives you the ability to take more hits from Aliens.
If you take to many hits when in the Gantz suit it looses power and you loose all the abilities of the Gantz suit- you can take the suit with you to the real world.. but if you do this and forget to bring it back you will be without a suit for the duration of that game.
(Based of the Gantz Anime and Manga series)

You may discover you have special abilities when your suit is on.Such as moving water or turning water into ice. You must have gone through tough training with your suit on to do so.

Now shall we begin? You may start your character as a live person that dies. Or you can just start as a person who is already in the Gantz world and has been there for awhile.

You decide..
Image
"Your are all dead and your life is in my hands you bastards. What you do with your new life is up to me"
-Gantz

Profiles should look something like this.
Name:Your name
Status: Gantz Veteran or New to Gantz
Info: How you died.
Appereance: How your character looks.
You may add all info you think is necessary.
Here is my profile.
Name:Belthazar
Status:Gantz veteran
Info: 9th grader killed in a school shooting one day, when a kid brought a gun to school some girl took it and shot him.
Appereance:Kind of short with short hair

Only 6 people will be able to be in the RP at once. All others will be put on a waiting list. The waiting list is for those who become inactive, they will get replaced.(If you are not going to be on everyday, you won't be accepted since this RP can go VERY fast at time.You may come back in 2 days and see 50+ pages at time.) (If you are not going to be on for awhile and your already in the RP (if your going on vacation or something) PM me so you don't get replaced.)

I'm going for this one.. just one small detail:
"Each time you are called back Gantz gives you a Gantz Suit that looks like this" - you can take the suit with you to the real world.. but if you do this and forget to bring it back you will be without a suit for the duration of that game. Not sure if you want that rule changed... but if we're going with the original ones that should be stated.
Oh yes... and i can be around everyday... depending on the hours of course, but should be able to keep up with a fast passed RP.

Profile:
Name: Angellina
Status: Gantz veteran
Info: Senior on an high school, was involved on a car accident and died instantly. Since she got into the first game she stayed on the farthest corner, not talking much or sharing any theories... her eyes just analyzed the situation.
Appearance: Long red dyed hair, usually tied back, with fair skin and green cold eyes. She's wearing a black tracksuit, with a ocean blue shirt underneath.

OOC:Thats fine. I forgot about that.There is another thing that I am adding at the first post.I don't know if in the manga/anime that they get powers in there suit after intense training. (Since I haven't finished the manga and never saw the anime) but this is how we do it on the original one, you train and after a lot of training your character may discover a new power.(1 person on the forum is based around wind, I was based on fire and earth)Basically, if your character goes through intense training, and has a reason for learning that skill,(I learned the ground moving one, when I was bashing rocks with my hand it got stuck and eventually I move the rack around my hand) you can't just be walking down the street one day and flip a building over.However you can only use the powers with your suits on.

OOC: Sounds interesting, hehe... what i read on the mangá's was more connected to the reality. The suits enhanced, speed, strength and toughness mainly, being highly influend by the user's state of mind. Could be fun to add some more supernatural abilities thou.
Oh... just one thing are we waiting for the other four to join? Or will we start this soon?

OOC:We can start now.

Belthazar gets up a knocks on Gantz.

"You teleported us here.. we have a mission don't we gantz?? give us the mission specs and our suits.."

*At that moment a old 1960 war song plays and a picture appears on the front of gantz*

"Well well it seems we have a target.."

-The Taku Aliens
-Features:Strong fast
-Appearance:Tall blue hunched over with a bug face
-Catch Phrase: None

The side of Gantz opens up revealing a huge rack of weapons and Belthazar's and Angellina's Gantz suits.

Angellina was leaning against the farthest wall when Belthazar yelled at Gantz, a sly smirk running across her lips. As if he would let any of us give him orders... Yet.. the song started, the same song that she had heard the first time, the same so annoying sound "A new morninnng as comeee... a neww morning..."
"Annoying" she said almost to herself, walking to the black ball's side and pulling the suitcase with her name. After that she grabbed one of the Xguns and walked back to the hallway, eyeing back for but a second.

Passing by the door she started to get changed into the suit, the... hotaku suit as she once had called it.
What a joke it seemed on the time, and how awfully real it was now. Several missions to go, and so many that would get killed still. But now, it was not the time to think about existential things, now it was about time... to be transported to the battlefield.

Belthazar hurries to put on his suit then grabs 2 X-guns watching Angellina being transported. "My turn." he says with a smirk while getting transported. Belthazar pulls out a small black device and opens it up. "The aliens are north, theres three of them." He says walking.

"Three of them uh? This will be fun."
Her eyes darted from one side to the other, analyzing the surroundings... urban zone, no visible civilians. The roads went up north and down south as far as she could tell, surrounded mainly by old buildings, still everything seemed clear just like he had said.
"Let's stay close? At least until we know what those things are capable off."

"One of them seems to be running, or maybe chasing something.We should take care of the two that are in one spot then go after the third one." Belthazar says "look out!" He shouts as on of the aliens jumps toward Angellina the claws growing huge, while the other stands on a rooftop.

Her heart starts to race as the adrenaline is pumped into her veins, eyes narrowing as she jumps back, using the suits abilities for faster response. The claws pass just an inch away, and soon the alien is facing her while getting ready for another attack.
The grip on the gun handle gets tighter as she mumbles something not so pleasant to herself. With no more waiting she starts to walk back, almost teasing or mocking the fiend... daring him to attack again.

The beast jumps at Angellina again, slashing at her face. The other one jumps down from the room. He launches himself at Belthazar with his huge claws. Belthazar jumps back and pulls out his X-gun shooting at the beast.The beast jumps up onto the roof top again. "Damn those things are fast." Belthazar mutters pulling out his other X-gun.

She took a breath as she saw him coming, charging in. The motion of the air as the claws made their way through, leaving the body mostly exposed on a frontal attack. It was risky yes, and she knew it.. but all that mattered were the points, were they not?
Angellina tossed herself into the ground, falling on her back as her right hand fired the Xgun.
Yet nothing happened, nothing ever happened. And so he followed her movement jumping onto the hair for the last strike... One... two... three... ... and BAM! The left side of the alien swelled and then exploded with a loud noise... arm tossed aside, blood spilling all over.

But it kept going, screeching in pain. Blood tears coming out from it's dying eyes as he babbled senseless words until he fell over her, piercing one of her legs with the sharp claw.
Again she pressed the trigger... but was too late as the pain rushed through her back making her scream and curse against her own lack of judgment.

OOC:From now on, can you let me control the aliens form now on.(even killing them) Because some of them might have special abilities.

"Are you alright?" Belthzar asks Angellina. Before she can answer, an alien comes rushing right at him. He shoots his X-gun madly at the beast until it finally blows up right in front of him.Guts going all over his face and body."Are you alright?" He asks again walking over to Angellina "Still one more, you up for it?" He asks

"Yeah..." she pulled herself up, and smiled trying to forget the pain rushing through. "Where is he?"

OOC:Were just in a city, it will be the surroundings for all the missions. Lots of buildings, traffic, pedestrians, that sort of thing.(But we can't be seen or heard by the people.)

"He's that way." Belthazar says pointing "He seems to be moving pretty quick, faster than the other two that is for sure.Lets hurry and get him." He says walking in the direction he pointed.

OOC: Well, this is a forum based RP... it is supposed to have the format of a book. Hence descriptions will enrich the story... not to mention that the actions being more detailed would also help me avoiding/reacting to them. Anyhow... enough of the subject, too much OOC talk for my taste.

She eyed him before pulling herself together and giving a few steps. The pain rushing through was enough to make her flinch from time to time, as small droplets of blood slided on the suit onto the ground.
The silence around them made the scenery even more uncomfortable... yet it could be useful to pinpoint the fiend when he attacked. Briefly she eyed the watch... still plenty of time it seemed.

The passage of each second then seemed to take an eternity, her instinct warning her that something bad was about to happen, and Angellina's eyes darted from one side to the other. Could it be invisible? Her heart raced, as her mind got pestered with all series of questions to which she didn't had the answer.
"Common you freakin' alien... show yourself" she said between breaths.
