Sounds like a lot to work with. Have fun.
I'll add more suggestions with time if you wish.

Um. I'll go with a tiger shark and name him Rezu. I'm guessing we're going to need nicknames for graffiti tags, stencils and such, so that'll be "Salt", like my old tag.Ok ok it seems we got everything together so about characters...
Sounds cool. If you do plan to go through with this idea, please do contact me later.(Would've replied earlier, but I was still having that weird glitch keeping me from posting) Well, I'm planning on setting the world within a dystopian future (possibly an underwater city) with an 80's flare. I intend on there being a bit of a Jet Set Radio-like plot (coming from someone who's never played the game) where it's just a bunch of teenagers to characters in their early 20's that live their lives in warehouses, abandoned buildings and wherever else they can in the streets. Everybody has a reason for living like this whether it's lack of parents or parents kicked them out, or maybe they live like this to join this lifestyle of spraypainting, shoplifting, pickpocketing cyberpunks. Though, unlike Jet Set Radio which has characters with roller blades, (Here's a reply for your magic use, Lekamo) I was thinking of momentum-based powers where characters speed and jumping is increased while neon streaks drag behind those that use the power. Limitations or lack thereof is still up for debate.
The police are all varying robots and drones that replaced traditional law enforcement, meaning the characters have to adapt to new competition.
This is all I got.
Yeah, that's alright. I can see it malfunctioning as a plot point. Wasn't @Simo acting sort of as an inventor type? He could be the one that stole the tech from a hospital or something and applied it to whatever limb.Yeah I also agree to no mutations policy, but how about cybernetics? Like only having a missing limb replaced with artificial one? I I'll shortly come to for my char info once I get back into my PC
I am already coming for a idea of having mobile phone and paint spray gun integrated to the arm with changeable spray cans or something simpler but possible to do (only suggesting and throwing in the ideas)
Sounds solid, I wrote a very small bio for Rezu a few posts back, pretty sure some other people are making characters though. I'll probably write a more full bio soon, today's gonna be sort of busy for me.Yeah, that makes sense, but what I was thinking was that instead of moving through the ink, was that you moved the ink itself, stretching it so you can reach your destination. Like the shadow stitching Jutsu in naruto almost, except used with ink and paint instead. Then again, havin a mark on your skin rather than a non organic addition seems more natural, so I think that your idea sounds a little better. I'd be happy to start writing a side bio if I can get some characters... yknow, like a prologue
My friends bug me to write quite a bit XD.Sounds solid, I wrote a very small bio for Rezu a few posts back, pretty sure some other people are making characters though. I'll probably write a more full bio soon, today's gonna be sort of busy for me.
But I also really dig the Mirror's Edge approach, originally the characters were going to start as practically ruling their part of the city to having to live in hiding after the governments discovery of their powers. But a motive that puts themselves in danger for the sake of more than just themselves could work too... but what bugs me is they're also thieves that live off of shoplifting and heists for a new couch or TV, which is the lifestyle that brought them all together in the first place. It's a weird transition from fighting for themselves to fighting to show the truth to the people they steal from; in a sense, they live off of the governments lies.
well i was planning to be also a part of the story so i am willing to volunteer to give info. since i am not so good at writing long stuffsYeah, that makes sense, but what I was thinking was that instead of moving through the ink, was that you moved the ink itself, stretching it so you can reach your destination.

Sure thing. Problem is, I've got to go for a little while, and I'm a little sporadic with my online periods, so if I'm not online again today, I'll be online around 6-7 pm London GMT timeyes and i think its probably a best option to do it in PM? and then post the bio here when its finished?
heh no worries i am from Europe also (Finland) and the PM:s wont disappear from forum as far as i knowSure thing. Problem is, I've got to go for a little while, and I'm a little sporadic with my online periods, so if I'm not online again today, I'll be online around 6-7 pm London GMT time
i am also a bit loss at what animal my char should be based off.I am at a loss of what animal my character will be based off of. But what I do know is that I want my character to be named Carol and for him to be short with a fat build. I want him to be a character who struggles with being courageous and has a history of being bullied. Carol is bisexual and leans toward men but he tells everyone he is straight when he really isn't. Everybody usually goes for the cool/badass character but I want Carol to transition into a hero/good person not begin as one. Problem is that I don't know what to base his design off of. I would really like suggestions as to what sea creature he should be.
That sucks. Ok I'll try to help brainstorming.i am also a bit loss at what animal my char should be based off.
That'll do. You're really taking it for the team here, that's awesome! ^_^Also I was thinking that the cause of the underwater city was the government attempting a anti global warming movement, to reduce the levels of CO2 in the air, but it failed, flooding the entire west side of the world in a catastrophic series of events. The aquatic sealife found the wreakage and actually evolved to the city, forming hands and building an entire city. Eventually, divers found the city and work was done to encase it, as a last ditch for survival. Now it's like a giant bowl, and because of this, they had to build multiple levels to make as much room as possible, meaning that it became a literal underwater planet.
All 7 of my faces are running wild with this... it's been a while since I've gotten into something like I have here...
Well, it started as just rebelling for the sake of rebelling, but perhaps as more and more information surfaces about... something... we can change our direction to that specific thing. I'm still on board with the government finding out about our powers and then the governments violent true colors show, and later on more and more is realized and it turns into an effort to break out of the city and a new arc would begin.My friends bug me to write quite a bit XD.
But what I mean by the characters, is the generation before the rp. What was the government, who ran it? Why are we fighting it? How did the non conformists form together? Was there an old leader to them? Why we're they labeled terrorists? That's what I wanna write. Fir now at least.
