Ruthless Galaxy: The Paradox Machine - OOC

Post by Vara Lord on Thu Feb 13, 2014 10:12 pm

The aline whimpered in terror. His experiment had gone horribly wrong.

This alien, named Jacs, was a scientist in the field of temporal physics. He had devoted his life to cracking the secret of time travel. Until now, the idea had been nothing but a hypothesis, and one that was not taken very seriously. But, now, after years of work, Jacs was ready to overturn that. Everyone had laughed at him, told him he was crazy; now they would see his true genius. All that was required was a quick test run before the great unveiling.

That's where things went wrong. Instead of time travel, the machine seemed to cause some sort of vortex to open; or was it an explosion? Having blacked out, Jacs was never sure. But there was no mistaking the trouble he was in now.

Jacs shivered as something that looked like a tentacle stroked his leg. I voice seemed to form itself inside his head:
I am so grateful to you. Your little experiment has given me life and this small pocket dimension to live in. But I hunger now, and I must feed.

"Please don't eat me," whimpered Jacs.

Fear not, said the voice. I have no intention of consuming you. I have special requirements. I need the unique energy that comes from a paradox. You will help me create them with your machine. If you do not cooperate, however, then I shall kill you.
_______________________________________________________

Welcome to The Paradox Machine, a roleplay with a twist. In this roleplay, rather than create a new character, select your favorite character(s) from other roleplays on the forum and bring them into this one. However, instead of having just one version of your character(s), here you will have two, a past version, ad a present one.

Enter your characters in the following manner (if you'd rather make up someone new, then just submit a standard sheet):

1. Character Name:
2. Character Image: (optional)
3. Future Version: at what point of this character's life were they taken? Was there anything significant about this point in their life we might want to know about?
4. Past Version: at what point of this character's life were they taken? Was there anything significant about this point in their life we might want to know about?
The basic roleplay rules apply. Have fun!

1. Character Name: Prince Vey Churim
2. Character Image: N/A
3. Future Version: Ten years after the current events in the Disruption. He is now 66 years old, and his back condition obliges him to use a cane.
4. Past Version: About thirty years before the current events in the Disruption. Vey Churim is about 26, and has just ascended the throne of Daro. He has not yet received the injury that resulted in him wearing a Dark Energy Convertor attached to his brain; as such he does not at this point possess any telekinetic abilities.

1. Character Name: Aarin Tiirmot
2. Character Image: N/A
3. Future Version: Ten years after the current events of the Disruption. He is about 55 years old.
4. Past Version: Thirty years before the current events of the Disruption. He is about 15 years old.

1. Character Name: Mott Gatiir
2. Character Image: N/A
3. Future Version: Ten years after the current events of the Disruption. He is about 65 years old.
4. Past Version: Thirty years before the current events of the Disruption. He is about 25 years old, and has just begun his career as a mechanic and engineer. He has not yet invented the Dark Energy Convertors.

1. Character Name: Jiiran
2. Character Image: N/A
3. Future Version: One year before the current events of the Disruption. He is the supreme warlord of the Imperial Despot bearing his name, and has just conquered the planet of Daryssan. He has not yet openly declared himself.
4. Past Version: Twenty years before the current events of the Disruption. He has been living on Vathoris for two years, and is a loved and respected member of the community. The Liirlith have as yet not begun their manipulation of him, so he shows no hint of who he become.

EDIT: glad to see you're in, Whoster. I'm kinda hoping VU will submit Ravage to this. That would bring a ton of dimension to the story.

I'm wondering if we have to say our characters remember all of this in Disruption, but I can only imagine Ravage and her past self, Scree, won't get along at all...

Actually, I was thinking that two characters, their future versions that is, would end up being the only ones to remember, and just wouldn't mention it. Everyone else, afterwards, would just go on with their lives as if nothing happened.

1. Character Name: Theranis Ra'agus
2. Character Image: N/A
3. Future Version: 5 years after the current events of the Disruption, Theranis is still a Sentinel at 54 years old. However, his injuries from current events forced him to be augmented with minor cybernetic enhancements.
4. Past Version: 25 years before the current events of the Disruption, Theranis is 24 years old. He works on a Krathunian frigate performing covert operations against the Dominion. However, the ship crashed, leaving him stranded on a planet.

Theranis is the only character I'm adding for now, will get more later.

Inside a house I guess. That's where I started mine out. The two versions should be in separate houses though.

I think we're waiting for you to specify how exactly to start out and what the guidelines for the beginning are.

Here's my sheet.

Character Name: Ravage (Future Version), Scree (Past Version)

Character Image:
(Only have a Future Version)

Future Version: Having once again vanished without a trace from the perspectives of others, Ravage was patrolling the generally calm outer-reaches of the galaxy. There wasn’t much notable about her life at this time other than the fact that she had become a decorated hero in the UCN, although she never seemed to retain any sort of desire to remain on one planet for too long. She developed a strong tendency to stay for a short period of time in one place, and then grow restless, due to the fact that many of her assets were solely related to combat and survival, the former not present on UCN homeworlds, and the latter too easy, and not challenging enough. Ravage, considering herself an active officer, despite her high rank being classified as an office job, did not stay on Caverna for very long. The last female Krylonian in existence, as well as a powerful mutant that does not seem to age, yet rapidly heals from severe injuries, she is a highly unique individual, and despite most being interested to know her, she retains the incredible ability to retain about herself an aura of secrecy that can take ages to break. She travels with a gigantic male alien predator called a Spiromander, which she has affectionately named Xenos, who serves as her animal companion as well as a mount on some occasions. Although she is in reality 41 years old, she still appears to be at the physical age of 21, and she retains the very high military rank of Major General (Major, for short). Stubborn, and harsh, yet retaining incredible wisdom, she remains secretive, and possesses an incredibly high level of intelligence. She has multiple violent and aggressive tendencies, which can be triggered by various subjects, although for the sake of others, she often restrains them. Standing at a towering 5'8", she is above average height.

Past Version: At the age of 19, Scree is a young Second-Lieutenant that, despite being fresh out of the academy, has somehow managed to obtain a promotion, making her one step above the lowest rank possible, Officer-Cadet. Friendly, social, and somewhat naïve in her belief that the Dominion, a powerful warmongering empire, will leave Krylon alone, she tends to rapidly gain the affection of those around her, simply for the pure innocence of her beliefs. A pacifist, she doesn’t like to fight, and generally prefers a peaceful solution to problems. She can generally retain a logical thought process in a tough situation, but overall, concepts such as violence, and the sight of death, deeply disturbs her, and she is likely to feel ill at the sight of blood and gore. Although she works to maintain a good physical level of strength, she has never fought in a battle in this time of her life, and therefore does not retain any sort of skill in combat other than generic techniques. This leads to older, more seasoned warriors easily beating her. A normal Krylonian, her feathers are a bright sky blue, with no iridescent quality to them, with darker blue stripes. Her wings are slightly larger than average, as is the length of her mane, but at a common 5'3", she isn't that big.

@ViperaUnion Would you mind having Scree meet the older versions of Vey, Aarin and Mott first while Ravage meets the younger ones first? Thanks.

1. Character Name: Unit 8164392/Unsilenced Retribution
2. Character Image: N/A
3. Future Version: 6 years after the current events of the Disruption, Unsilenced Retribution remains a highly regarded member of the Federation military forces and society as a whole. He retains his abilities though the organic side of his mind has nearly completely uprooted the logical drives of the machine.
4. Past Version: 89 years before the current events of the Disruption, the Ryun-Wreae Federation is still scarred by the Metan Wars. Unit 8164392 has just become an officer in the new conglomerate military, very skilled at commanding ground forces though it has talents in space command. Like all Wreae at this point the machine is sentient though it thinks in a way AIs do. However, the Wreae tends to be slightly more irrational than others.

It may be a good idea to note that machines don't exactly age in the sense that organic beings do. I'll post his stuff tomorrow.

Alright, that's fine by me, should be interesting. I'm glad that they go by different names, it will make life much easier, and the simple fact is Scree isn't going to know Ravage is her older self when they run into each other, because the difference in appearance is so dramatic, but Ravage is going to be completely positive Scree is her younger self.

Should we assume that older versions of characters know each other even if it hasn't yet occurred in the Disruption?
