Default L O S T - The Role-Playing Game (OOC Thread)


Welcome to

L O S T
The Role-Playing Game

This RPG is similar to almost all others on the Superhero Hype! boards, except this continuity centers around the world of the wildly popular television show L O S T.

Oceanic Flight 815 from Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles, California crashed 1000 miles off course, somewhere in the Pacific. 43 survivors found themselves stranded together on the island, awaiting rescue. The days passed and, slowly, they learned to come together. The 43 castaways of the crash must fight to survive, both each other and the many hidden dangers that lurk in the island’s lush forests. Set in the popular world of TV’s L O S T, now you can take part and unfold the mystery of the island for yourself.

How will the survivors learn to live with each other? What dangers will the mystery of the island reveal? How many heroes and villains will emerge?

Welcome to L O S T, The Role-Playing Game.

Gamemasters: Matt Murdock, SenseiofCheese

RULES
  • For the start of this season, you may choose any fuselage survivor from the world of L O S T, or create your own. OTHERS AND TAIL-END SURVIVORS ARE NOT PLAYABLE FOR THE TIME BEING.
  • All characters can interact with each other.
  • Characters from alternate time lines are allowed but must be approved.
  • No Killing. Unnamed, faceless NPC's may be killed, but not major characters, or taken characters. Someone else may want to take up the character, or they may be important to another story.
  • You can go anywhere on the island. That's about it.
  • You are your character, so act like it. Talk like them, use their dialouge. Do not exaggerate your powers, or pop-up here and there without explanation. BE Your character.
  • Several stories can be going at once, and you have the freedom to interact with other characters.
  • You must post at least once every two weeks, though it is preferred that you post more. If you go two weeks without a post without prior notice, your character is up for grabs.
  • Be serious, no slander, or impractical actions from your character. Example; "I found a crystal and now I own the world! You're all my slaves!"
  • All regular rules of the Hype apply.
  • Have fun.

A few house-keeping points to get things started:
  • The game currently has a one-character limit. Since there are not yet heroes and villains, this seems like the most sensible choice.

Default Re: L O S T - The Role-Playing Game (OOC Thread)

And here we go! WOOO!

Screen Name: SenseiofCheese, you douche.

Character you would like to play: Sawyer

Is this a pre-existing character or self-created?: Pre-existing.

Brief history of the character up to the point of the crash of Oceanic Flight 815: As a child, Sawyer was forced to watch his father murder his mother and then himself. He has spent the last years trying to hunt down the man he believes responsible, a nameless, faceless con man. His search took him to Sydney, Australia, where something happened that would further damage Sawyer.

Three reasons why you have chosen that character:

1. He's a scoundrel. And if there's one thing I love, it's a scoundrel.

2. He's a very conflicted character, and I can't wait to play around in his head.

3. He's a jerk. And hopefully I'll get in lots of fights with the other survivors.

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar explaining what you think you can bring to the RPG: A dedicated poster who is determined to make this game survive. Frequent posts written to the best of my ability will ensue. Yes, ensue.

How many times do you intend on posting a DAY IN the RPG: Most days I can post quite often.

Please provide a sample post in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least 1 line of dialogue):

"당신은 나의 물을 가지고 갔다!"

Sawyer's eyes lazily wandered from the book he had been enjoying to the enraged Korean man running towards him.

"당신은 나의 물을 가지고 갔다!" the man shouted over and over, almost falling over as he angrily treked through the soft sand.

"Woah, woah woah." he dropped the book onto his blanket, making sure not to close it completely so he wouldn't lose his place. "What'n'the hell are you talking about?

"당신은 나의 물을 가지고 갔다!" the man, whose name was Jin (The only reason Sawyer knew this was because he had found it extremely amusing when Jin tried introducing himself in broken English, and tried to listen in as often as he could), kept repeating the same phrase over and over. Sawer could only assume Jin was angry over his bottle of water.

Sawyer knew this, of course, because he had taken it.

"Listen, Mr. Myagi, I don't speak gibberish. I'm gonna get back to my book now, and you best leave me to it."

No you're not. You're wasting everyone's time by writing that meaningless statement, but you aren't applying.

Wow!

I know the RPG's are so slow, but we've gotten to the point where we're RPing about confusing storylines where nothing ever happens!

Sorry, I'm just not a fan of LOST. Best of luck with the RPG, I just wanted to get that out as I start my vow.

OMG! The villain is black smokez!!11 LOLZ!

Christopher Eccleston so needs to be in Lost.

Screen Name: Climperoonie

Character you would like to play: Andrew Wilson

Is this a pre-existing character or self-created?: Self-created

Brief history of the character up to the point of the crash of Oceanic Flight 815: Andrew was an employee of the BBC, and was head of foreign location scouting. On one journey, he had to catch a connection from London to LA to Sydney. Although it was BBC financed, he was travelling on a public plane. The scout was successful, and he caught the fated Oceanic Flight 815 back to Sydney.

Three reasons why you have chosen that character:

1. ‘Coz I’m holding out for Tailies.

2. BBC rulez.

3. I bloody love Lost.

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar explaining what you think you can bring to the RPG: A non-druggy English person! A non-druggy English person with a video camera!

How many times do you intend on posting a DAY IN the RPG: Depends on how much interaction I’m involved in.

Please provide a sample post in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least 1 line of dialogue):

The first thing Andrew saw was sand. It took him a second or two to catch his bearings, but the next sense that returned was taste. And he tasted sand. He pushed himself up and spat it out, rubbing at his tongue. This effort was in vain, however, because his hands were also sand covered, so he was just rubbing more sand in. Touch, smell and sound all returned at once, and what he heard made him swing round quick.

“Now there’s something you don’t see every day.” Was the sentence he found himself uttering. In front of him was plane wreckage. Red and blue stripes on the fuselage indicated it was his plane. There was metal and flames everywhere. Suddenly, ahead from the trees, he heard rustling. A man in a suit emerged, and ran over to the crash site, helping the injured.

Wait, trees? He stood up and surveyed his surroundings. He was on light sand, and to his right was blue sea. To his left was thick, dense jungle. He was on a desert island. Even though desert wasn’t the correct name for it. Maybe jungle island. Then, he found his legs carrying him towards the crash site. Next thing, he was helping people.

Character you would like to play: John Locke

Is this a pre-existing character or self-created?: Pre-existing (surely GM should be able to figure that one out?)

Brief history of the character up to the point of the crash of Oceanic Flight 815: John was crippled when his father pushed him out of a window. A few years after this whilst he worked for a box company, he booked tickets for a walk-about in Australia. When he wasn't allowed on the trip because of his disability, he took Flight 815 back from Sydney.

Three reasons why you have chosen that character:

1. He has a lot of depth.

2. Someone has to play devil's advocate.

3. I like the character.

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar explaining what you think you can bring to the RPG: A character and a player. Pineapples.

How many times do you intend on posting a DAY IN the RPG: As many as I remember.

Please provide a sample post in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least 1 line of dialogue):
The trees joined together overhead, filtering out the light and casting shadows over the jungle floor. Twigs and foilage crumpled underfoot as Locke stalked through the undergrowth, hunting knife clasped in his hand. He heard birds chirping above him and the buzzing of insects.

There was a thundering sound as the young boar crashed through the trees and shrubs. John moved swiftly to the side as it sped past him, lashing out with the knife and catching it with a glandcing shot on the belly. It turned around, snorting, beady eyes flitting around crazily at the source of pain.

Locke crouched, then rolled to the side as the boar charged, thrusting up with the knife as it went past and stabbing it in the gut, using it's own momentum to slice it's stomach open. It growled and snorted, flinging it's head around with razor sharp tusks. Locke brought the knife down again in it's neck, violently severing it's blood flow. He looked up as rain started to patter down through the leaves and hit the jungle floor. He smiled.

"Today is going to be a good day," he said, grinning.

Oh ****, sorry about that Sentry. But if you're very, very interested in going with Desmond, you need to talk to either MM or me and work something out. Not promising anything, since it'd be really hard for Desmond to work at this stage, but there's no harm in discussing it.

Or, you know, go with Sayid. That way I can call you all sorts of racial slurs and you can punch me. A lot.

Screen Name: Matt Murdock

Character you would like to play: Doctor Jack Shephard

Is this a pre-existing character or self-created?: Pre-existing

Brief history of the character up to the point of the crash of Oceanic Flight 815: A successful Doctor prior to the crash of Oceanic Flight 815, Jack Shephard could be considered an everyman. He sticks to his principles, and, what's more, his guns. His greatest influence has been his father. While Jack is a man who appreciates the work his father does in the medical community, he, indeed, has a guarded reservation about allowing himself to become like his old man, a drinker.

Three reasons why you have chosen that character:

1. To be honest, the group needs a leader. Jack facilitates the ability to lead the narrative as a GM and, at the same time, I can actually take a part in the story.

2. The game needs a Jack, and I'm not sure there's anyone else who'd want to play him. He's the stereotypical hero.

3. I like stereotypical heroes.

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar explaining what you think you can bring to the RPG: I think I can bring a good roleplayer with a decent amount of experience. I can also bring a new, but avid, fan of the series.

How many times do you intend on posting a DAY IN the RPG: Depends on the action.

Please provide a sample post in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least 1 line of dialogue):



Breath shallow. Heart racing. Pulse gotta be at least 130.

Doctor Jack Shephard was not a man prone to panicking. And, as he listed the rough, approximate figures and facts in his head, none of them seemed to be of much concern. Quick breathing and a fast heart rate were hardly things to be worried about. What was, however, a cause of concern for Jack was the fact that he wasn't just how this unworrysome factors came to be. His condition could be explained by any moderate physical exertion. But, that was just it.

"I'm lying down," Jack thought, blinking several times, realizing that he was flat on his back.

He squinted and rose to his feet bracing himself with a hand on his knee.

There was a beach just outside of the clearing in the forest that he found himself in. He didn't know where he was, exactly. Or, more importantly, how he got there.

Character you would like to play:
Sayid Jarrah

Is this a pre-existing character or self-created?:
Pre-Existing

Brief history of the character up to the point of the crash of Oceanic Flight 815:


The son of an Iraqi war hero from the Iran–Iraq War, Sayid served as a communications officer in the Iraqi Republican Guard. During the Gulf War, Sayid's base was captured by the Americans. Sayid is made to act as a liason between the American forces and his former commanding officer. Eventually (after learning of a planned attack on his home village) Sayid proceeds to torture the officer in order to gain information for the Americans. He swears never to do this again.
However, Sayid begins to use his skills as a torturer for the Guard. It is in this role that Sayid re-encounters a childhood friend, Nadia. As he spends more time with her, Sayid comes to fall in love with her, and goes so far as to shoot his commanding officer and himself in the leg to allow her to escape.
After leaving the Guard, Sayid searches for Nadia. He is approached by representatives of the CIA to help identify a terrorist sect in Australia, one which they believe includes his old college room mate. Sayid convinces his friend to become a suicide bomber so that the CIA can take possession of stolen explosions in the possession of the sect. At the last minute Sayid tries to allow him to escape, however his room mate kills himself as he realises what Sayid has done.
In return for this, the CIA honour their end of the deal and provide Sayid with Nadia’s location and a plane ticket to Los Angeles. A plane ticket for Oceanic Flight 815


Three reasons why you have chosen that character:

1.
Sayid is a complex character. Complex is good. Complex is fun to write and hopefully interesting to read.

2. I want to be the baddest mother on the Island. This is one way of doing that

3. He’s a character that interests me.

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar explaining what you think you can bring to the RPG:

I’ve previously posted in the DC RPG, and am currently active on there, so I’m no stranger to the concept of RPG-ing. I love Lost more than is naturally acceptable. I have a degree in Creative Writing and Media Studies. While that may not seem linked with this application, I did my dissertation on Lost. This combination of show knowledge and degree level writing should hopefully add a layer to my posts, as well as the RPG in general.

How many times do you intend on posting a DAY IN the RPG:
At LEAST once, depending on activity of others. As a teacher, sometimes my workload may be intense, but I’ll check in with a status update if nothing else.

Please provide a sample post in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least 1 line of dialogue):


I look at him. His lip bleeding. I want this. I never wanted it before, But I want this. I want his red neck to blister in the sun. For what he did… what he’s done.

I throw what’s left in the water bottle over him, and toss it to one side. He splutters.

“Well, ain't you the brave one? Jumping a guy when he's nappin'…” His southern drawl… the arrogance…

I move to the side, so he can see Jack. While they glare at each other, I grab a branch of bamboo.

“Huh. Well now we got ourselves a party. Couple more fellas, we can deal a little stud.”

I’ve heard enough. I snap the bamboo in my hand.

“Uh oh. I'm in trouble, ain't I?”

I’m almost aching to use it. I want him to hurt. He stopped us getting rescued. He stopped us being safe because it’s more convenient for him. And now he doesn’t provide Shannon with medicine that will save her. Medicine of no use to him. No use except to sell. I almost can’t control it, I almost lunch at him. Then Jack speaks.

“We gave you every chance to do the right thing, Sawyer. All we wanted was the asthma medicine. Just tell me where your stash is. Where the medicine is. And we'll stop.”

Sawyer just smirks. “Stop what, Chico?”

He just smirks. I snap the branch again.

“It doesn’t have to be this way.”

The two of them look at each other. There is a pause. Then he speaks. “Yeah it does,”

Whatever he is running from back home, he’s not running now. I don’t know why, but I need to explain what is going to happen next. It helps the process. Breaks the prisoner before you’ve even laid a finger on them in some cases. In others, it is just a curtosy. I kneel down to his level.

“We do not have bamboo in Iraq, though we have something similar. Reeds. But their effect is the same when the chutes are inserted under the fingernails”

He turns away from Jack and half smiles. “Know what I think, Ali? I think you've never actually tortured anybody in your life.”

I grab a hold of his arm, and I force the fingers back.

“Unfortunately for both of us, you are wrong.”

With a sharp thrust I force the chute under his fingernail. He feels it. He feels it and he knows. This is only the beginning.

Please post a picture of your character for use on the roster:

For the record, that is the real lines from the show. I wanted to do a scene people would know, so you could get a feel for how I'm going to play him. Hopefully, it worked?
