Let's try this again, shall we? This is an RPG with many of the elements encountered in MMRPG Prototype. Teams will be formed (and thus different stories ongoing all at once), to research the effects of Starforce on the denizens of the Prototype. Some beings only wish for the very best for everyone, some seek to use the power of Starforce to conquer the Prototype and make it their own, while yet others keep their motives a secret. As the adventure unfolds, characters along the way will reveal their true intentions, and it becomes clearer whose side everyone is on. This is also a Choose Your Own Adventure. While you will be working with others to progress in the stories, ultimately you decide your own actions, so your decisions could have a big impact on the story! Do you wish to save the Prototype, conquer it, or do you just simply want all the Starforce for yourself? Whatever your intentions are, let it be heard through your actions!
The gameplay of this RPG is a simplified version of the battles in the Prototype. Your characters grow in strength as you battle more. Instead of the typical experience system, robots will automatically gain levels, and get points added to their stats, after winning battles based on said robot's performance. There will be no criticals to deal with, but the presence of Starforce and Field Modifiers will affect how well you perform. The battles themselves may have some twists to them, but you will know what the gimmicks are to the battle prior to the first turn. This will include my own interpretations of the future additions to the actual Prototype, like Dark elements and Bosses.
You will also interact with the various npcs in the game, and some may join you in battle (though these will be controlled by the game)! Of course, you won't be alone...other players can be in the same battle as you. Instead of having one active robot per side...everyone performs on their own! Items can, of course, be used once prior to an action, and these items can be used on allies as well! You may also get the ability later to hold an item for yourself...but more on that when the feature becomes available! Cooperate and destroy the teams opposing you...even with the possibility of said team having other players in it!
So, how to join? Just simply register any characters you want to use. You can register more than one character if you so desire, though do keep in mind there can only be teams of up to eight characters per story! You just cannot register the following characters since they may be involved with the story in some way (or just in general boss characters are not selectable):
Mega Man Bass Proto Man Roll Disco Rhythm Trill Slur Enker Punk Ballade Quint *any boss characters*
You CAN, however, choose to bring your own "original" character into this (I am bringing mine in, though as an npc). If you do that, I'll need the following information:
Name: Type: [Only single cores allowed]
Elements (no more than 5 total) Weaknesses: Resistances: Affinities: Immunities:
Stats (Distribute how you like, just no more than 400 total points) Energy: Attack: Defense: Speed:
That is all you need to get started. As far as abilities, all robots start with the Buster Shot ability, but will gain more abilities quickly during the first story and also throughout the game. You may carry a total of 8 abilities into battle at once (you can set up your abilities prior to a battle or at any time during scenarios). As you progress through the stories, you will get your Tier 1 through Tier 3 abilities (if you're using a custom character, you may create your own, but I will be making sure your ability isn't too weak or too powerful!).
Has the game already started and you're creating a new character? Not a problem! Just join any story with open slots...if you can survive the battles currently being done, you'll catch up quickly!
That's all for the intro! I'll start the prologue and set up the stories once people sign up. Let me know if you got any questions or need something cleared up. I tried to make this game a little simpler to understand this time.
Name: Crash Man (DaCrashBomber) Type: Explode Weakness: ShieldWind Resistances: CutterExplode Affinities: None Immunities: None Current Story: Chapter 1 Dr. Cossack

Registered Crash Man and ZeroDXZ, though I had to adjust the stats since level 1 robots are only allowed 400 points total. Let me know if you want some values adjusted.
I'll go ahead and begin the game, but I will wait first to see if more people will join. You may pick a story you want to do in the meantime, though. Now then...
Prologue: The Never-Ending Peace Suddenly Ends
After the defeat of the Master to save the Prototype, there came a time of peace for the residents of the Prototype. The effects of Starforce are still unknown to many, but many yearn for the power it provides. Some robots believe that Starforce can benefit the entire Prototype by producing strong robots that can protect the powerless from those wanting to control the Prototype. Others, however, feel that Starforce is a dangerous tool and should be left alone. The debate of Starforce continues on as advancements are made, and the Prototype is now able to "save" the data of its many robots and retrieve the robots' information at any time should the robots themselves cease to function for any reason. With all robots working to better the Prototype, the scientists trapped inside have eventually found their way out of the Prototype, and continue to monitor the robot data while living their regular lives back in their world. The peace does not last as long as everyone wishes, though, and hidden forces have begun to make their moves to regain control of the Prototype...
...Meanwhile, inside the area of Final Destination...
*the two mysterious robots battle each other fiercely, though one clearly has the advantage and counters*
*the smaller robot is sent flying into the wall, and places his hand on his chest in pain*
...I was just starting to get interested in this battle. You are the only individual in this part of the Prototype that has actually given me a slight challenge.
*an evil laugh is heard from the larger robot*
...But, you seem to have used up your full power. I will let you live since you show promise...but I will not be so merciful next time we meet.
*the larger robot disappears in an instant, and the smaller robot is heard panting*
...I have never felt...so helpless...in battle before. I must...gather more Starforce...
*the smaller robot slowly walks into the shadows*
Chapter 1: The Adventure Begins
The three doctors continue to debate whether or not to continue studying Starforce when they receive reports of attacks on neighboring colonies of robots. All three doctors set up teams to investigate with their most loyal robots and the local robots. The doctors themselves have their own missions they address to their captains as well. The story begins!
Choose a story!
Dr. Light: 0/8 Main: Find out the purpose of the attacks and fight back! Secondary: Determine where the attackers came from.
Dr. Wily: 0/8 Main: Find out the purpose of the attacks and fight back! Secondary: Study the effects of Starforce.
Dr. Cossack: 0/8 Main: Find out the purpose of the attacks and fight back! Secondary: Investigate reports of "Starforce Fever".
Choose what story you want to do (you don't have to be in the same story as other players unless you want to). You will get more abilities just before the first battle. The first chapter will begin a little later today.
EDIT: Also, for those making a new character, also mention what story you want to enter at the same time you submit your character.

Rev up those fryers, 'cause here comes two new characters!
Type: Cutter Weakness: Earth & Explode Resistance: Shadow & Flame Affinity: None Immunity: None Energy: 100 Attack: 121 Defense: 111 Speed: 68 Motive(?): Wishes to do away with Starforce in hopes of returning fights to a more "honorable" state.
Type: Electric Weakness: Space & Shadow Resistance: Wind Affinity: None Immunity: None Energy: 100 Attack: 82 Defense: 109 Speed: 109 Motive(?): Wants to analyze the energy that gives Starforce power.
Despite this not being canon, both robots will be under Dr. Light, if that is okay.

Beginning a quest, our opponents lack honor, The beetle dies first. Yamato Man uses Cutter Shot on the Beetle Borg.
On only the first encounter, these enemies display signs of Star Force delivered enhancements. Those pesky Fleas always seem to be hopping about, so let's eliminate that variable first. Gravity Man uses Electric Shot on the Flea.

Bass, I just got word that another robot is quickly approaching here, sent by the Doctor. ...Does Wily think we are not able to handle a few worker robots? His many defeats with Mega Man must have driven him crazy.
(Ninja Man has joined the battle! Get your Swift Shot and Wily Buster ready, Bt Man!)

It's a shame I cannot examine any of your core- *Peng performs attack previously mentioned that misses Gravity Man* - but you seem to only desire slaughter. So be it! Gravity Man uses Electric Shot on Peng.
A first step near done, How will this path continue? Time will soon reveal. Yamato Man uses Buster Shot on Spine.
