Skye Prower added a topic in Free PlayWelcome to Free Play (Please read this first)Hello!
And welcome to Free Play. Free Play is a Sonic RP that anyone can join, set in the Pre-Reboot world of the Archie comics. It is a lighter RP than those in the main Role Play Section, but a bit more formal than the Light RP Section. Players are free to create their own storylines and plots.
The RP is set in the Pre-Reboot era. In order to start with a blank slate, the major hanging plot threads will be resolved. Which means Sally is no longer a killer Robot, and Naugus is no longer in charge of New Mobotropolis. Exactly how both these occurred will be left vague for now. Should these facts need to be explained, they will be then.
So how to join? There’s two stages. First off, post here with which characters you wish to play. You can have up to three characters, which can either be existing characters in the Archie Pre-Reboot era, other existing Sonic characters, or your own Original Characters. Obviously, you can’t take the same character as someone else. Original Characters should be around the same power level as regular Sonic characters. No overpowered characters. For original characters, or non-Pre-reboot Sonic characters, they will need to have a profile filled out. Non-Pre-reboot characters should be altered so then can fit into the Archie world. A blank profile is below. Your profile has to be on SCANF, either in this topic, or in the Character Chest section.
Second, make a post for one of your characters in the Introduction Post section. All the rules for doing so are there, make sure to read them closely.
Once you’ve done that, we’ll PM you to let you know if you’re in. If we haven’t gotten back in touch within 24 hours, feel free to bug us about it! Once you’ve been accepted, you can then post in the game.
Rules for the Game
All the standard Forum and RP rules apply to Free Play. As mentioned, you can create your own storylines and plots for this games. However, please make sure these plots don’t mess up anyone else's. If you’re unsure, you can ask in this topic. Keep one thing in mind, if your plots need a specific villain such as say Dr Eggman, you will either need to have that character under your control, or ask the person running the character if it’s alright for them to work with your plot.
In addition, Free Play is a fast paced RP. Posts don’t need to be super long. Just a few sentences could do. But please try to have proper spelling and grammar. While the posting order should follow that each player waits for the others before posting again, if there are no posts within 2 days, anyone is free to post again. Gotta go fast!
On a similar note, if you leave the game, you are free to rejoin at anytime without needing to make another Introduction Post. However, if you leave for two months, any existing characters you control are freed up for others to choose. Of course, original characters remain in your control.
If you leave in the middle of a plotline that you are either controlling or key too, the other players can change that plot in order to keep the game running, so please keep that in mind.
Alright, that should be all the rules. Have fun everyone. Character lists and profiles are below.
Wait! Where’s the game?
As you have seen, right now, there is just the Welcome and Introduction sections up at the moment. There’s a couple of reasons for this. First is the obvious, it makes sense to have a couple of confirmed players before starting the game proper.
The second reason, if depending on what characters players chose, and what plots they come up with, will change where and how the game starts. In this game, the plots are in the players hands just as much as mine, so if someone has an idea for a plot to open with, we can begin with that.

Skye Prower added a topic in Free PlayFree Play Introduction PostsHere’s where you make an Introduction post with a fixed scenario. It doesn't need to be excessively long, but unlike the normal game, it can’t be just a couple of sentences. At least a couple of paragraphs. Spelling and grammar need to be correct, or the most part. Small mistakes are okay. You don’t need to make a post for each of your characters, just for one of your choice.
Taking a cue from the old Free-Play game, the scenario is the immediate aftermath of a battle with Metal Sonic for possession of a Chaos Emerald in an old ruined temple, in which your character has come off worst. In this instance, there are no reinforcements that can arrive to stop him, and your own character is too injured and weakened to be able to defeat Metal Sonic, regardless of what abilities they have. If you try and attack again, there is a good chance you could die without stopping him. So the question is, how does your character react?
Skye slumped against the wall, her breathing fast and ragged. There was a light, almost tingling sound as shards of broken Power Crystal fell to the floor from her damaged gauntlet. The sound was drawn out by the noise of mechanical gears, and the clink of metal on stone as Metal Sonic strode over. His glowing red eyes surveyed the fox for a moment, before dismissing her and picking up the Chaos Emerald where it lay on the floor between them. With it in his grasp, he turned to walk away.
“N-no..” Skye groaned. “I have to stop you. Heroes always win.” She tried to step forward towards Metal. The robot’s head snapped round, and with a rush of air, his jet activated and he shot towards Skye, grabbing her by the throat and slamming her back into the wall.
All the breath was knocked out of the girl, and judging by the pain, it felt like there might have been more damage than just being winded. Metal opened his hand, letting Skye drop roughly to the floor, the fox gasping desperately to fill up her lungs. The robot turned away again, not considering Skye worth the effort of killing. Skye watched as Metal left the temple, before her vision faded as she passed out from the pain.

Skye Prower added a topic in Character ChestSkye CrystalDespite being role-playing for over a decade, and Sonic Role-Playing for around half that time, one thing I don't have is a definitive Sonic OC for myself. Skye Prower has sorta taken that role. But I felt it was time to have someone else, so here we are. Still keeping the first name of Skye though!
I have had art done of her, but this version isn't quite finished yet. And as well as the profile, I've even done a script for an introduction adventure for her.
Name: Skye Crystal
Species: Fox-Lynx Hybrid
Skye is slightly shorter than the average Mobian, standing between the fox and lynx of her mixed heritage. She mostly resembles a fox, however she has the same face markings as a lynx. Her ears are longer and thinner than a foxes (or thicker and shorter than a lynx’s) and end with the same dark tufts as a lynx.
Skye’s fur is a gingery orange colour, while her hair is a slight shade darker and redder. It reaches down around her mid back, mostly straight with a very slight wave in it. She has a single thick front fringe, though it’s slightly messy and sticks out in bits. As she usually has her goggles pushed up on her forehead, this keeps her fringe off her face.
Her eyes are a turquoise colour, as are the crystals, force fields, and her magic.
As well as her gauntlets, goggles, satchel and quiver, she wears a dull green jacket with a darker green trim. Usually open, but closed depending on the weather (and the censors!). She also wears a pair of shorts in the same colours. Skye goes barefoot.
Powers/Abilities: Skye’s abilities, such as speed, agility, resilience, intelligence etc, are all above the Mobian average, but not by any significant degree (With the exception of her common sense which can be lacking). For example, if abilities were rated on a 1 to 10 scale, with 3 being average, and 9 being say Tails’ IQ or Mighty’s strength, Skye would have 4 and 5’s across the board.
Slight Magic – Skye has a very slight magical talent, able to manipulate it to create a few small sparks, but that’s about it. She could maybe create a constant light if she focused.
Archery – She is a decent shot with a bow, but certainly no Rob O’Hedge/Legolas/Hawkeye etc
Close combat– With her natural abilities and her gauntlets, Skye is capable in close combat. But she lacks any real skill in fighting, so a skilled opponent would not find her a challenging foe.
Artificer – Her main ability. Skye is able to use prepared crystals to store some of her magical energy, and then use these crystals as a power source. And she became quite skilled in building small/medium inventions using these power crystals. However, being magic, the power can be unstable, and these devices could have side effects, have a chance of overloading, or simply not work. The exception being the devices that produce energy fields, as Skye has now worked out (most of) the kinks in those systems. Because of the unusual power source, and the fact that Skye doesn’t actually know the basics of electronics, these inventions of hers would not work with any regular power source.
Skye’s goal is to one day be able to build robots of her own, though she currently lacks the skills to do so,
Weapons/Equipment: Bow – Her main weapon. This bow has an energy forcefield ‘string’ and can either create its own force bolts (which loose power the further they travel) or can fire regular arrows if needed.
Gauntlets – Skye wears a pair of gauntlets, each capable of projecting force fields of various shapes, allowing her to create shields or simple weapons. They also have a built in grapple hook. (I’m a sucker for grapple hooks!)
Goggles – A pair of goggles used when Skye’s working on her inventions, which she wears pushed up on her forehead the rest of the time. While they are regular work goggles, the right side has an attached lens which can fold down to assist Skye in aiming her bow.
Multitool – A penknife by any other name, which can project small forcefields to act a blades, screwdrivers, clippers, files, etc etc.
Satchel – A simple tool satchel, which hold Skye’s tools, spare power crystals, and a few other gadgets. Most are kept inside the satchel, but her Multitool is slotted into a pocket on the side.
Quiver - A small quiver worn on her back with a handful of arrows that have different specialised heads.
Personality: At first Skye is very shy and awkward around those she doesn’t know. However, around her friends, on her own, or if anyone shows even the slightest interest in her inventions, Skye is very enthusiastic and talkative. She is also slightly naive about how the world operates.
This also extends into wanting to be a hero like others, but her enthusiasm can get her into trouble. However, she will defer to those who are more knowledgeable or skilled than she is. The exception is regarding her inventions and experiments, where she will be pretty stubborn about what she is doing, moreso if there is any implication that what she is doing is risky.
While she enjoys puzzles, Skye can miss an obvious solution while trying to work on a more complex one. She can also panic if out of her depth without someone to help her.
She also has a slight temper, which is under control most of the time. Unless someone makes fun of her inventions.
Background: (Note – This background is designed to be flexible enough to fit into any version of the Sonic franchise, though it may result in a few tweaks)
Skye’s home was an isolated forest village, where the inhabitants had chosen to live a ‘technology free’, almost tribal lifestyle. They weren’t isolationists, at least, prior to Dr Robotnik/Eggman, and would welcome in other Mobian’s who wished to live a technology free life. Most of the inhabitants were Lynx’s, but many other species were present.
While they don’t have any technology, many of the Lynx’s have developed a talent for magic. A unique aspect her is the storage of magic in small prepared crystals, almost creating magical batteries. These tend to be used to enhance spellcasting, or simple illumination.
Skye was born with a slight aptitude for magic. She could fill a crystal, and cast a simple light spell, but that was it. But what Skye was drawn to were the bits and pieces of technology that sometimes were found around the village. They were almost always broken, but Skye developed a fascination for them, wondering how they worked. At first, the villagers allowed her to collect them, seeing it as a phase she would grow out of.
But Skye didn’t. She spend more and more time with her collection, taking them apart and trying to understand how they worked and put them back together. Then one day, she realised what was missing was a power source. She charged up a crystal, and with some work, was able to get the device running again.
Proud of what she had done, Skye showed it to the village.
Only to be cast out, for using the village’s technique to fuel the very technology they despised.
Now, Skye has been left on her own to wander, and to build. She has managed to create more devices, and she is starting to learn about the wider world she’s found herself in. The one thing she has learned is about the various heroes who help defend the world from evil, like something from the campfire stories she listen too as a child. And Skye wants to be one of them.

Skye Prower added a topic in RP OOC SectionPokemon: Drake and Wyvern OOC*Insert your favourite Pokemon theme here*
We are now returning to the world of Pokemon! This is a reboot of the previous Pokemon RP, but given how detailed the region was that Dylan and I created, we didn't want it to go to waste.
Welcome back to Ganlo!
An island Region located just north of Kalos, Ganlo used to be a major power in the world. But for over half a century now it influence has dropped to almost being a forgotten relic. The mind-set of the nation sort of reflects this, as the Region does focus a lot on its history, such as its towns being named after ancient weapons, and its gyms often located inside historical structures.
According to legends, Ganlo was once ruled by a race of Dragon Pokemon who enslaved the humans and weaker pokemon before they were overthrown, and likely driven to extinction. After this, the people of Ganlo began spreading out and forming an Empire.
There are two unique aspect about the Pokemon in Ganlo. The first being there are no fixed starters for the Region. Instead, when potential Trainers register, they may select a starter from another region and have it shipped in, or they may take one of their own Pokémon, if they have any.
Second, there are no known unique Pokemon species in Ganlo. Any that were unique have either been spread to other regions long ago and found there as well, or are so rare to be close to extinction and never seen. Conversely, there are hardly any (currently known) Pokemon Species not found in Ganlo. With the exception of the Alohan region, as the climate of Ganlo isn’t best suited to the more tropical Pokemon.
The population of Ganlo are also very keen on Contests. One vs one contests are almost as common as battles (with another trainer asked to judge). And every town and city has contests every Saturday, though only the contests in the cities can hand out official Award Ribbons.
Ganlo is split into four sub-regions. North, South, Central, and Island. Transport is manly handled by the extensive train service. Every town and city has a train station and routes to all nearby settlements.
As well as the usual RP rules, there are a few more given the setting. I have tried to keep then to a minimum as much as possible.
First, this resource will be INVALUABLE! http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Main_Page

The Legendary Dragons
In the ancient History of Ganlo’s Dragon Wars, three powerful dragons are named as siding with humanity, and eventually convincing others to do so; Galeas, Lamhcalad and Gauvain. Some sources say they were dragons who felt pity on the enslaved humans. Others that they were humans who found a way to become dragons themselves. Their fate is equally conflicted. Most legends say they were slain when the humans turned on them after the war, but some accounts talk of them fleeing Ganlo, and others hiding somewhere within its lands.
(These Legendries can be claimed like any other, but WILL tie you into the metaplot of the RP, so can’t be used freely until a certain point in the story)

Amber on the other hand wanted to stay at the Centre, but she didn’t want to leave her sister either. And when her parents pointed out that going out in the world might help her learn more about Eevees and other Pokémon, she decided to go along too. Kimberly chose her starter Pokemon because it was the “cutest and cuddliest” from her point of view, while Amber was gifted an Eevee egg as a thank you present from a grateful customer after she nursed the customers sick Eevee back to health.
