    ~ Before reading just know. I joke around a bit with the dates. This is a human RP if you ain't into that I recommend reading as this has been a long time planning ~


    It’s the year 2069 the world has plunged into chaos . Mechanical mayhams rise and give birth to droids and drones. Large hives of wire and metal amalgamations sending these mechanical war devices .

    In 2068 a technophile rose up in the ranks. He showed his inventions that could change the world. A little droid that when placed in water will spray a special serum purify it and dissolve plastic. He quickly was questioned and his face was scattered in the newspapers. Dr. Eldwitch Van holm.

    He showed off his inventions almost monthly. However in December of the same year while showing off a machine that could swirl the air around and collect any debris in the air and cleanse it. It worked perfectly till the clock struck midnight.

    When Midnight hit the bot seemed to twitch and shake. It flipped itself upside down and started to shoot sparks around. The Debris it picked up from the air solidified and merged together into a limp mushy doll of dirt and dust. It attempts to move and falls apart. The droid starts to spark more and more before it starts letting out a message

    “H̵̛̝ḛ̴̂'̵̣̿s̸̩̍ ̸̺̋ģ̸͘ŏ̸̲n̸̪̾ǹ̶͎a̶̛͈ ̸̡̓s̷̗̓t̵͉̾a̴͙̾r̵̲̆t̴̯̊ ̷̲̑a̸̹̾ ̷͈̀n̵͖͝e̴̅͜w̶͖̐ ̵̻͠r̸̩͠e̴̥̽v̵̛͕o̷͉̐l̷̹̑ů̴̱t̸͎̚i̵̙͂o̴͂͜n̵͓̏ ̵̝͗i̴͔͌n̴̤͂ ̵͂ͅa̵̕͜ ̴̺̌b̶̳̑a̸̻̐d̴͈͂ ̵̣͐w̵̺͠a̴͔̕y̸̥͛ ̶͚̌R̸͙̀u̴̡͠n̸̡̈́ ̷̨͂w̴̖̌h̷̹́e̷̫̍n̶̛͜ ̴͇̓ŷ̴̺ȏ̵͈ụ̷̈́ ̸̝̃c̶̭͂ȧ̶͈n̵̟̊.̸͉̎” The droid started to spaz out before letting out more ghastly dolls. It lets out a large audible pop as it sends the debris all around the audience

    The robot continues to spit more out as Dr. Eld uses a shovel to bash it in half. The Audience gasped at the sight as Dr. Eldwitch picked up the remains of his once perfect invention.

    Newspapers flooded the streets of his name. Called a Traitor, a fraud, a liar. He walked the streets and looked at the people who used to trust him. He didn’t show off an invention for January or February but in March he walks back up on the podium holding a large ball.

    “As you all know, my last invention had a fault in it. This invention should fix it all. All your trust will be regained in this hopefully.”

    He holds a button down and the ball lets out a chime. It floats up into the sky and opens it up on the bottom. It starts to gather air and a box filled with screws falls out of the sky. Dr Eldwitch grabs it and takes the screw out of the box.

    “This little droid will make any resource you need and because it can make more of it. I’ll be giving these away. It can make food, water, anything! The Deliverbot!” He flicks his hands into the air.

    People line up to grab them as fast as they could as a sly grin goes across Dr. Eldwitchs face as he leaves.

    Weeks past people are making colossale buildings with ease and humanity is growing faster than ever. Until April first comes around of 2069 The droids only have been sent to around the city and nowhere else. The droids activate at 3:00 am and start to float . The extend little arms out that crack open windows, pick door locks, unscrew vent shafts to get out of the home they lived in. They float out like a large amount of balloons taking to the sky. The drift upwards to the middle of the sky where the Podium that Dr. Eld once stood.

    They all start to spin and let out a large motoring sound. They start producing lots of metal that melds together and most the drones break apart and fly off. The ones that stood at the podium start producing more Deliverbots as they make more metal making an amalgamation of metal that produces more and more drones.

    People wake up to see the hives and start to freak out. Some grab guns and try and shoot it to no Avail . “Look on the Podium!” A male calls out. People look over to see Dr. Eldwitch with a large maniacal grin on his face. He was wearing a white trench coat covered in wiring and motherboards. He was wearing black gloves.

    He spoke and his voice echoed around the buildings with the megaphones attached to his shoulders. “Hello Civilians! As you all can see . I’ve started my world domination and none of you are able to stop me! So let’s all just sit down and let these drones take you hostage.”

    People booed as he spoke but he showed no care. He started to laugh. “If you think any of your boos has a care for me? You’d be wrong !” He laughed endlessly as the drones slowly spread these large hives around the world.

    This message got sent out to the world to start preparing for these things. Militaries prepared and were standing on coastlines. This was the rise of the Techromancers. People who used technology to take out these droids.

    Back in the city of Yutopia the hive finalized and it started to pump out more robots to fight. Some big and some small. Some human like some not. They pillaged the city and brought it to the ground. They started to build new buildings and captured any humans that lived in the onslaught .

    The Techromancers started to gear up and this is where you start your journey. In the same continent of the Hive of Yutopia. (Not in Yutopia) to start gearing up and get ready to take down the hives of these robots and shut down Dr. Eldwitch.


    This is where mother bird leaves the nest.

    ~ This rp has a special thing called Techromancy. You'll use technology you break and kill to form your own unique weapon. This could be floating knives that dance around you, a large spike that breaks through enemies. But always thing of balance. You'll have to say about how much scrap and wiring you need to make it work. Same with if they have special uses like a flying portable rocket . That'd need something like propellers.

    ~ A flying scout will have 4 propellers, 27 scrap, 29 inches of wiring, 2 batteries. ~ These are the smallest type of enemy . Not all enemies have propellers and some have other unique items so think wisely of what you need. How they're grabbed will be shown in story. ~

    We start off in the same general area.

    History: He was a mortician and loved but hated his job. When the hives started forming he dressed up in his plague doctor outfit in case there was any way for the robots to take pictures and scan people for their identity. He wanted to keep on the low side. While adventuring the town at night he finds himself exploring the parks and found a lantern laying on the ground . It was cracked and it seemed to still have some flame in it. He picked it up and felt his hand start to burn. He attempts to let it go but the lantern lets out a large purple flame that engulfs him. He feels pain all around his body . He fell to his knees as the purple flames swirled. A black figure forms in front of him and hugs him before vanishing.

    Neat, 'tis like an rpg~!

    Name: Lichte
    Age: 17
    Gender: Male

    Appearance: black haired, fair-skinned, moderate build, wears a black jacket and black pants wih lots of pockets and carries a large machine that kinda looks like a vacuum cleaner with wires connected to his pants
    History: unknown; lived in a village near Yutopia
    Personality: energetic and outspoken, cheerful and lax, but when using his Techromance becomes serious and composed

    Strengths: versatility; can create nearly anything
    Weaknesses: speed/reaction; techromance needs a lot of concentration and preparation especially for more complicated actions

    Techromance:
    Disintegrator: a vacuum-cleaner, anything sucked into it turns into Entropic Dust which is sent into tubes in his pockets; the tube isn't large, however, so only small items/parts can be absorbed
    Staff of Reversed Entropy: a mysterious rod that can be charged with sparks from robots, it emits shocks that can transform Entropic Dust into anything inanimate; it takes a while to make large things, though

    Non-techromance weapons: staves and daggers, many formed from Entropic Dust

    Special Powers:
    Weak Telekinesis: has a weak control over the Entropic Dust and things formed from it
    Entropy Bomb: a bomb made from Entropic Dust that can be activated using electricity of a certain voltage

    Special Techromance:
    True Entropy: the ultimate power of Reverse Entropy; everything a kilometre around the staff when it is activated will disintegrate save for itself and its wielder; using it will cause the staff to be unusable for five days

    This looks good, Sign me up (if you can/want, that is).

    Name: António

    Age: 23

    Gender: Male

    Appearance: António is a tanned skinned, well built individual. He's always seen wearing an LED mask/headgear, and an indigo hoodie with some dark cargo pants and a big back pack. From the neck down, he has visible lightning scars.

    History (Sorry if it's too long. Got inspired while writing): António been a cyber criminal since his younger teens. He's a skilled hacker, when it comes to tech and computers. After many years of hacking servers and pulling a few strings, he was finally able to get his hands on a special Virtual Reality headset. What made this headset special, was the fact that it was capable to uploading the users own consciousness into the internet. The headset was yet to be released to the public due to it's many flaws, terrible ideas, and easily corruptible systems, and it's manufacturing was quickly stopped, never to be finished. After tinkering with the headset and fixing most of it's issues, he finally decided to test it out for the first time. Once everything was plugged in, he turned it on... only for the headset to overload, and electrocute António. For a whole 30 secconds, António was a victim to a fate similar to the electric chair; nonstop electricity coercing through his body, and making every single muscle spasm. Once that was all done, he fell right onto the ground unconscious. Once he woke up, he immediately noticed two things: One, he wasn't dead, and he was no longer in any immediate pain. And secondly, the head set actually worked. He was able to access the Web with the headset as if it was an actual computer. Feeling accomplished, he wanted to take off his headset and show it off to his online friends, only to flinch in pain whenever he attempted to remove his mask. After a while of trial and error, he'd come to the conclusion that the Headset was stuck to his head, and that it wouldn't come out. Seeing this as a problem, he wanted to call over a friend to see if he could help with the head set, but when his hands were inches from his phone, lightning shoot out from his fingertips, into the phone. Quickly pulling his hand away from the phone, and the lighting was gone as fast as it came. He tried to grab the phone again, but was meet with the same results. Not wanting to fry his phone, he attempted to grab other things, that's when he realized that the lightning would only appear when he'd try to grab anything metallic, or capable of conducting electricity. That's when he'd figure out a third thing... he can conduct electricity, and that it didn't harm him anymore.

    Personality: Outgoing and honest to a fault. He doesn't really care what strangers think of him, and is very full of himself when if comes to computers.

    Strongside: Strength and is immune to anything electrical.

    Weakside: Mobility and Magnets (electromagnetic pulse)

    Techromance

    1* Can contain electricity within himself via many means, and utilize it while fighting or in other situations. However he needs to prevent himself from holding too much electricity otherwise he'll fry any electronics he touches.

    2* He's able to super charge his weapons with electricity. The more electricity he charges his weapons with, the more destructive they become.

    3* He's able to plant a 'Worm' into an enemy robot to make them slower. It takes a while, but if left long enough, it can cripple a robots speed. This requires very little electricity to manage, since he really only needs to do it once.
    (if you don't know much about hacking language, here's some info on what a worm is: [Similar to a virus, a worm is a destructive self-contained program which can self-replicate. A worm doesn’t need to be a part of a program, but instead, it can transfer itself to multiple systems on a network without user intervention. A self-replicating worm can consume hordes of memory and bandwidth while drastically reducing the speed of your system.])

    4* He's able to use 'Malware' on robotic enemies to steal important information. This process takes a while, and he needs to place a most of his focus in extracting that information. This requires a lot more electricity than the 'Worm', and it'll take even more electricity on bigger robots.

    Non-techromance weapons: A Metal Baseball Bat, A Stun Gun, and a Silver Chain (Fun fact, Silver is one of the most conductive metals for electricity).

    Special Powers:
    Rootkit Hacking: Utilizing his rootkit, António is able to force himself into a robots mainframe, gaining temporary control of the robot. Once a robot is hacked, he can only give the robot basic commands. This requires either batteries, or a lot of built up electricity, for him to power up his internal programming.

    Upload consciousness: António is able to push the limits of his abilities by uploading himself into any computer or robot. This comes with a big draw back, and that's that his real body becomes unconscious, and he has no control over it until he returns to it. Effectively leaving him very vulnerable. This requires a lot of wiring and few scraps to achieve, depending on what he's uploading himself too.


    Special Techromance:
    SubPerona AI: António is able to create an that big metal box that houses a superhumanlike artificial intelligence, in which he dubed, Mimi. The AI is able to deal with computers and look up information at an extremely fast pace. Combat wise, it is able to hack enemies as well, but much faster, and more efficiently. It's also António best friend. However, to build it, it takes up a ton of wiring, scraps, and other hardwares to build, and it's built to not last long.



    If any of you guys every played 'Payday 2', think of 'Joy'. His head set is similar to her's with an LED mask that can change appearance. The only difference, is that it has a hatch that can open to reveal his mouth.

    Seems very technical. If you explain the costs of his abilities than Green Lit.

    There, added some ability costs to some abilities. Forgot to add them in the first time. I would've preferred to add more wiring and scraps into the costs, but since most of it is hacking, it'll mostly take up batteries and some wiring. Just tell me if anything else needs changing.

    Edit: If you post something after this, I Probably wont be able to read it until much later. I need to turn off my wifi for a bit and do some stuff before heading to work.

    Alright, we still have 3 days till closure. 2 days till the start. I want to add one more character. To make it so that we use more scrap as not many of us use it.

    Name: Cozbi Hammerlock
    (Fun fact the name Cozbi means Liar getting away)

    Age 14

    Gender Female

    Appearance: A short slender girl with short brunette hair, freckles scattered around her face, purple eyes, tanned skin, a cracked tooth, long elvish like ears, a black kimono with red roses scattered around it. wearing black high heels, a white kitsune mask on the back of her head, Long cybernetic claws on the edge of each fingertip . Her fingernails were painted yellowish orange, you could almost see every bone in her body.

    History She was raised in a small village not far off where our adventure begins. She was taught by her parents at a young age to not trust the ones above. The people that her parents spoke of were, religion , the police, rulers, and far more that the eye could see. She was trained at the age of seven to know how to use a knife and fend herself off of any Hierarchy like a police officer came after her. She was taught how to steal at the age of fourteen. Being told to wake up at random times and go to sleep at ungodly hours she could work on a sudden ambush if needed. She has a small stomach which allows her to eat little and get nourished enough to move on little stuff like berries. She can live on less food than most but needs to eat in certain time frames. At the age of fourteen she was told to run away and hide as the town was invaded by a wild tribe of cryptic robots. As she runs in the forest she finds an old stump with an old hatch . She examines it and pries it open falling back at the sudden unlatching. Standing up she finds an old cracked black obsidian knife. Noticing she left her knife at home she grabs it. Raising it out of the stump she notices the weight it has. She twirls the knife around and jabs the air. She tosses it in the air and grabs it by the handle. Walking to a tree she stabs it and the knife punctures the tree with ease seeming to poke out the other side. Taking the knife out a hole is made in the tree and a large chuck of log sticks to the knife. "This'll do well." She mutters flicking the knife to launch the wood. She attempts to throw the knife in the air and it flies before quickly reappearing in her hand.

    Personality A close minded trickster of a kid with a low expectation. She seems to be tired but is really just bored . She often is expressionless. She will only show a soft spot if something detrimental happens she is very numb to pain with how her parents raised her using leather whips on her almost daily.

    Strongside Waking up fast and moving quickly with high endurance. She can lie with ease as well

    Weakside If she hasn't had food within five hours she starts to move sluggishly feeling ill making her almost useless in combat. Her small body also adds to enemies hurting her more than it would Valheart.

    Techromance -
    1* Blade of the wicked, she will use a little bit of scrap to extend the length of her blade for a strike on an enemy just out of knife range. Uses 12 scrap

    2* Drone setup, She can setup a variety of drones each costing different materials.

    Scout - 4 propellers, 27 scrap, 29 inches of wiring, 2 batteries. (yes it's the same cost as what it gives)
    Gunner- 4 propellers, 29 scrap, 34 inches of wiring, 2 batteries + 1 automatic gun
    Support - 4 propellers, 53 scrap, 73 inches of wiring, 4 batteries + 1 fission coil
    More to come.

    3* Memories of the past, her sanity drops and she starts to go mad. She will go rouge and fight anything like a wild animal even her own teammates. She will swing faster and also giggle uncontrollably. This'll make her very hungry afterwards and will need an actual meal instead of just a couple berries. *no scrap or anything required*

    4* Mask for the lost tears cried, the mask on her side will move on its own covering her face. This allows her to hide her face with ease allowing for her to lie easier Uses 2 wire

    Non Techromance weapon Deavolt - Her obsidian knife that seems to be bounded to her . She will use her heels to kick at her foes if need be. She also has her cybernetic claws on her hands allowing for quick slashing. Hidden in her belt is a syringe filled with a liquid only she knows about.

    Special powers

    *1 Feral lonesome- She allows herself to become Feral much like she used Memories of the past. She has some control over it and allows her to use her claws more effectively
    *2 Overdrive - She uses scrap to make a pair of prosthetic legs that allow her to make sharper turns and move quicker. Costs 100 scrap - 40 inches of wire - 4 springs - 12 hinges

    Special Techromance
    Lone wolf - She charges at her foes with her knife in hand her claws extended. She combines her blades and starts spinning around striking her foes over and over again. She can combine all her abilities into one and make it so that she can move at a much faster rate and strike down more people.
