[REQ] Shoot The Moon (Still Accepting apps)

Post by Hilo Takenaka » Wed Jun 06, 2018 10:48 am

Icarus Prime
The planet of gambling, neon glow and good times.
It is the hub of criminals, wanderers, playboys and people without hope. All looking for a bit of coin.
Sure as Hell ain’t a special place. Tonnes of places like it. But this is Humanity’s second colony. And although EFIC thrives and acts as a galactic hub of culture, Icarus Prime grew quicker than the hundreds of years EFIC did due to... a “few missing credits.”
That being said; there’s supposedly this really important man in Casino; a dude named Kelliope Dryar. Rumour says that he has something worth checking out. I have to find out what it is. If I fail, then I’ll play my cards right and shoot the moon.
♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️

Welcome to Shoot The Moon!
Players will come from all different walks of life, whether they be rich or poor, native or foreign, they soon end up in Stranger Hotel for a way to get rich, get richer or enjoy themselves, only to be caught up in a plot to ruin Icarus Prime.

NOTE; This isn’t a total list of alien species that you HAVE to choose from. These are instead species that are the most frequent or notable across the galaxy, and many more will appear during your travels.
  • Humans- Originally from the Milky Way Galaxy, these settlers have proven themselves to be more than capable when it comes to adapting to new areas, and are already immensely important to Cronos Eye Galaxy.
  • Luparis- A species that resembles a bipedal form of man’s best friend. Their culture is highly spiritual and tribal, despite their advancements in technology.
  • Eucharis- A bipedal species that has a crystalline crust due to living in their planet’s mantle. They tend to be stronger than the average human.
  • Millimen- Millipede and Centipede-resembling aliens. They tend to act as hired guns and bounty hunters. One such is the infamous Sixer.
  • Chimeras- Draconic-looking folk that hail from the gas giant Kirtan-III. They tend to hover and are hooked up to a tank of chlorine gas. Their singing can be used peacefully and aggressively.
  • Soloids- Sponge-like beings with no facial features on their skin. They can absorb carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses, releasing oxygen.
  • Oberii- A species that’s in the process from an ant-eating diet to an omnivorous diet. Their lips are elongated as a result, yet they’re not taken for a joke.
  • Warriors- Chorus was the moon orbiting the arid world of Tartarus. Able to control dark matter and light, the inhabitants of Chorus lived peacefully until a giant asteroid destroyed it. A large fragment of Chorus crashed into Tartarus, with those people surviving and evolving into the Warriors. Unfortunately they had lost their ability to manipulate light and dark matter, but still carry unique and impressive weapons. They resemble humans with warm-coloured exoskeletons, glowing eyes, clawed appendages and needle-like teeth.
  • Betrus- Hive-minded collections of microscopic bacteria that form in the shapes of splatters on the ground. They live in suits to socialise with other sentient races.
  • Geldmen- A species of reptilian humanoids with frilled necks that convey emotions. The colours and patterns on the frills reflect the person’s dominant bloodline.
  • The Prodigies- A group of watchers that each hold dominion over one world, and although they rarely interact with their planet’s inhabitants, they ensure that their world isn’t poorly looked after. The Prodigy of Icarus Prime is The Gambler; a risk-taking, charismatic figure that disguised himself among the public.

  • Casino: The hub of commerce and gambling on Icarus Prime. Despite being prone to crime, it’s the second-least criminal city on the planet.
  • Redd: A shady city that is ridden with criminal activity. Redd is generally off-limits to the public, although many go there to enjoy themselves more freely than at Casino.
  • Luxuria: Large, spire-like building complexes dominate this city. Although a lot of it is dedicated to shopping, many of its buildings are used as homes. Those that live at the top are generally wealthier than those that live on the bottom.
  • Insignificance: Like the name suggests, this land is full of workers of the barren land, growing lush vegetation on what was thought to be infertile soil. Despite its name, the government running Icarus Prime cares greatly for Insignificance.
For those that wish to come from a different planet, feel free to do so and make up your own. (However, do NOT change anything that’s already established.)

  • Follow all RPF and Casual Rules
  • This RP is PG-13. Even though it’s on a Las Vegas planet, don’t go overboard.
  • Ask permission of other RP’ers of relationships and the like before commencing them.
  • Also do the same for plot events
  • Everyone hates a Mary Sue. Don’t be a Mary Sue.
  • Don’t try and change established lore.

I honestly prefer descriptions, but if you’d rather, here are some pictures searches:
An example of what a Luparis can look like are the dogs from Lone Digger
And as for something that resembles Eucharis, think of Korg from Thor Ragnarok.

I’ll also post my own app
Name: Eisly Kah-Blancus
Age: 23
Sex: M
Species: Three-quarters Human, one-quarter Warrior
Homeworld/City: Redd, Icarus Prime
Appearance: Eisly’s height and weight is somewhat pathetic; 1.4m and 66kg respectively. Due to that, he has earned the nickname “Runt” among his mates, though he wears it with pride. His skin is incredibly pale, and although he is mostly human, traces of his Warrior heritage are still visible in him; the whites in his eyes are a dark grey, with fawn-coloured irises that glow lightly in the dark, and his knuckles, kneecaps, elbows and shoulders are covered in a fawn exoskeleton. His face, although boy-ish in appearance is still kind of masculine, especially due to the light moustache and chin scruff forming on it. His hair is dyed white with mint-green highlights and often contains several cowlicks. On his belly he has a tattoo of the four suits in a deck of cards.
Backstory: Eisly was born to a poor-working class family in Redd’s living district. His mother was a tourist that decided to settle down in favour for her love; Deak Kah-Blancus. Deak was an excellent gambler, whom spent his money on helping the poor out if they were left in crisis. Eisly’s older brother, Kirk, was three at the time of his birth, and quickly grew up to be an excellent fighter. Eisly admirered his older brother, and aimed to be a lot like him; attracting women, defending the poor, rich... it was all a dream to Eisly.
And that dream started to look like a reality when he turned 18; old enough to hoverbike.
Kirk had formed a hoverbike Gang with his mates, and Eisly wanted to join. Due to his short stature, he was called “Runt” among his peers, although Kirk told his gang members to treat him as one of them. The Whitecloak gang would race around Redd, beating up criminals, go drinking and just enjoy themselves. Even so, rumours of something big happening in Casino caught their attention, and so they headed to The Stranger Hotel, eager to learn more from their contact.
Personality: Eisly’s behaviour is reckless, albeit one of honour. He respects the laws and rules that Icarus Prime have, but instead of being a stickler to the rules, he prefers to have fun. He is a massive flirt and generally can’t comtain himself around women, especially if they’re attractive. Despite his perverse thoughts, he can still focus at the task at hand, and is clever enough to pick up many gambling tactics.
Weapon: Eisly’s weapon is a replica of his grandfather’s weapon, Shōkutso; a man-catcher he created as a guard to the Warrior Council.
Other: he enjoys to chew on nicotine gum.

Ambrosia Sterling

24

Female

Born on Luxuria
Lived in Redd for Two years
Moved to Casino

Ambrosia stands at around 5'7", with a sturdier and curvier frame than most. She has dark red hair that cascades down to the middle of her back, which is always kept loose or in a simple braid tossed over her shoulder. Her face is angular and slightly sharp, but still pleasing to the eye as her facial features exude a sort of 'mysterious lady' look. Her eyes are a little almond shaped, and are a light brown that could be mistaken for red in certain lights. Her skin is pale and fair, but in certain clothing you can see small scars on her neck, back and chest from various fights and run-ins with thugs. Ambrosia often wears simplistic and form fitting clothing, opting for a simple shirt and pants rather than any sort of fancy dress; though she isn't opposed to prancing around in a skirt every now and then. She often wears one earring that covers the outside ridge of her left ear, but you can sometimes find her wearing a locket necklace from time to time.
Image

Ambrosia was born to a prominent business man in the city of Luxuria, and she had the luck of living on the upper levels of the more prominent home buildings. She didn't quite know who her mother was for most of her younger years, as the woman had quickly fled the home and the marriage a month or two after she was born. Despite being born into luxury and riches, Ambrosia was often neglected by her father, resulting in her being mostly raised by a Nanny named Talia. Ambrosia had a closer bond to Talia than she did her own father, who was too busy to even speak to his own daughter most of the time. As Ambrosia grew up, the resulting neglect from her father made her more and more rebellious, doing almost anything to get the attention of her father. She'd often sneak out during the bleak dark hours to party with friends and run about the streets of Luxuria, but despite this her father continued to brush her off as less important than his constant phone calls and business meetings. Shortly after Ambrosia was caught vandalizing the side of a building with a bunch of friends, Talia was fired from her job as nanny. In a fit of anger at being dropped, Talia confronted Ambrosia and told her the truth; Talia was Ambrosia's true mother, and Ambrosia was born from an affair that her father had with Talia. Heart-broken and feeling betrayed, Ambrosia confronted her father on the truth of her birth. He brushed her off, but the constant neglect and anger issues finally mounted and Ambrosia took it out on everything. She destroyed precious business files, broke pictures and award statues, and shattered windows in her fit of rage. When she was done she realized what she had done, after seeing her father holding his head. She had hit him with glass in her little tantrum, resulting in him being cut above the brow and in the eye. Afraid of the consequences, Ambrosia ran from home to avoid being sent to any sort of delinquent program that her father might find after his recovery.

Luxuria had no room for a young runaway, so Ambrosia found herself travelling to the next city; Casino. She was terrified, alone and completely poor with nothing but 50 cents to her name; but an opportunity arose. She was offered a job in a casino as a show-girl of sorts; her beauty had caught the eye of a particularly popular casino owner. Despite not being all too interested in parading around in a flurry of feathers, Ambrosia accepted the offer. She would be stupid to refuse a chance to make money, so she allowed herself to be dragged into the world of Gambling and Shady deals as a Show-girl and 'statue gal' of sorts. There was no dancing for her, really, as she mostly stood around and looked pretty for those who frequented the casino. Occasionally she'd perform a show or two with the other girls, but most of the time she stood around at the entrance welcoming businessmen and middle-class folk alike. She worked as a show-girl for quite a while, before finally having enough money to purchase a small apartment-type home on the eastern side. One night, after performing a typical show, Ambrosia was approached by a shady woman who offered her a once in a life time chance; a way out. It was no secret that once you became a show-girl, it was extremely difficult to get yourself out of such a lifestyle. Ambrosia took the opportunity right away, and was told to meet with a 'Kelliope Dryar' at the Stranger Hotel, to finally get a taste of freedom.

Ambrosia is a woman who, despite her younger age, seems all too wise about what goes on in the shady part of the streets. She's very upbeat, but seems to have a problem with focusing on her own happiness; She puts others far ahead of herself. She's prone to bouts of terrible anger, resulting in violence and aggressive behavior towards others. Ambrosia is very flirtatious and likes to play with people quite a bit, and although she'll never tell you, she's a hopeless romantic. She can be seen as a bit harsh, as she often speaks her mind on certain things without having too much of a filter on her mouth, but her truthfulness about some things is a welcome change from the normally manipulative tongues that seem to be everywhere. Ambrosia is quick to spot lies, as she's amazing at reading body language, and will automatically call you out for it if she catches you. Ambrosia herself is pretty good at lying, and often uses her 'silver tongue' to get in and out of situations as she pleases. She can be a bit overwhelming, as she's extremely free-spirited and stubborn, but something about her whole attitude can be quite alluring. She has a lot of barriers around her emotions, but once you manage to push past the spiked walls she has around her feelings, you'll find she's a good friend and an even better person.

Ambrosia has one large scar just below her eye, but won't say too much about where it's from.
