Sandbox

Yogitchalondu

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call "The Sandbox".

In the sandbox, there is no defined starting plot or theme. You have the chance to create a character stemmed from your own imagination or get inspiration from from books, movies, lore, etc. The story takes place on a generic planet or planets during no specific time (meaning that someone from the medieval era could exist in a world populated by machines). There will be two or more defined teams of the characters that we create. The characters on a team don't have to have anything in common except a common goal. Also, both teams will have to meet at some point and conflict with each other. The story will begin once we have two players on each team.

Rules:
1. NO GOD-MODDING!!!!! This means no invincibility, no constant avoidance of damage, and no obvious advantage over the other characters. One character can not win every fight, and they must get hurt sometime.
2. Your character must be mortal and tangible. This stems from the first rule. Immortality equals invincibility.
3. Characters can not be killed. Hurt, yes. Defeated, yes. But not killed.

Name: Loki the Trickster

Bio:Took his name from the Norse god, just because he liked the sound of it. Evil by nature. His ambitions don't rise to conquest of the universe, but it would be a nice bonus.

Lord Regal

The West Team
Sheriff
Name: Lord Regal
Gender: Male
*Required info*: Controls water with ease. Can use it as a weapon, but also can make a very refreshing drink by combining pure water with the taste of pure air. Cannot drown. Uses an axe-lance (axe on one side, LONG shaft with lance head on the other side.) and a shield.
Appearance: Blue skin, blue eyes, blue clothes and blue cloak. Weapons are also blue. (shows alignment with water)
Side: Fights against anything he believes to be evil. Firmly on the side of good.
Bio: Regal started out as a normal kid. However, a strange occurrence turned him into a force of nature with the power of water. To protect himself, he stays on a planet covered in water in a tower he made on the one dry island on that planet. He lives a life of solitude, but will not hesitate to fight those considered evil at any time.
 

Justin Michael

Name: Mr. Jones
Appearance: Tall and strong, yet thin. He wears a three-cornered hat with a long trench coat. His half-buttoned shirt is thin and dirty, it once was white. Several necklaces adorn his suntanned neck -- one of sea shells, one of gold, and another of small stones carved to look like skulls. He wears ripped trousers and goes without shoes. His hair can only be described as a mess. Some of it is braided, some of it flails wildly all over the place, some of it is short, most is long. A whiskey bottle might be found some where in its mass.
Power: Reality Perception (can only control within the radius of a planet), One minute your goal in life might be to conquer the world in the name of nasal hair, the next it might be to worship shoes.
Location: The Cellar (a.k.a. Mr. Jones' Planet) is a planet on the edge -- if you think there is an edge. Nobody leaves if Mr. Jones don't want 'em to: just wait for reality to set in.

The wind felt good now. It was the best thing in the world!
"Faster!" commanded Mr. Jones. The two men pumping the handcar pumped faster. They reached the top of the hill and let the car coast down the rails.
"Whoooooo!" yelled Mr. Jones. The car coasted for a long while before it came to a stop.
"Let's go to the station!" said Jones. The two men sighed in relief. The station was about two yards away.
"Now we drink!" yelled Jones. Two waitresses took the queue and brought out wine glasses filled with beer.

(Later portrait)
Side: Alligned to Parliamentary Forces, people who want oligarchies in power, generally good, unless the Oligarchy or Parliamentary forces are on evil side. If oligarchies or Parliamentary forces are not available, will join what he thinks is good.
Bio: Born in the general time period of the late 1500s to early 1600s, to what would generally be called English parents, Oliver Thompson grew up and matured fairly quickly, from being with his father, Charles Cromwell Thompson, a lieutenant of a calvary unit. Forming military doctrine at an early age, developing it to near perfection, along with how to form militaries, Oliver eventually brought the proposals to the lord of the area, the Lord Michael of Lancashire. Lord Michael was so impressed, he gave the young Oliver a commission of Brigade General on the spot, at the age of 20, making him the youngest general officer in the country. Immediately afterwords, he formed the New Model Army. A few years later, the neighboring country of Ireland tried to invade Lancashire, the New Model Army, using new doctrines, mostly involving better use of firearms, artillery, and calvary, defeated the Irish, and allowed Lancashire to expand to include all of Ireland. Later, Oliver would be sent with a few of his New Modelers, as they were called, a company of Carbine Dragoons (http://www.napolun.com/mirror/napoleonistyka.atspace.com/img/dragoons_garde.jpg those guys, only armed with the M1 carbine). That is where we start Oliver's story.
