    I'm okay with that. Although I need to think of a reason why she would be at the base and not at Volk's lab.

    I've got a few basic arc ideas, I think something short and sweet would be appropriate and after that they'll head to the Grand Line. It'll depend on what you decide to do with Ten, is she on a mission and what is her current status?(As in is her self awareness already causing problems/suspicion)

    I figured that as she tries to discover her humanity, she'll run into a members of the UC. While this happens somewhere else a few other UC members stumble upon the execution site of Yuki.

    Decided to join this so here is my character
    Spoiler:
    Name: Alex the trouble Monkey

    Age: 16

    Starting Location/Current Location: West Blue

    Appearance: Alex stands at a minuscule 5 foot, 8 inches tall and certainly isn't the most muscular teenage boy you've ever seen being rather skinny though he does have some muscle. His eyes are a deep grassy green and his scruffy mop of hair is a fiery red color (think Luffy's hair but red) and his skin is a light tan color. His most striking physical feature however is the long tail about half the length of his body wrapped around his waist, a result of eating a devil fruit. He wears an ocean blue, sleeveless top sowed on to the belly of which is a laughing monkey face with two bananas in a sideways x shape below it, Alex's Jolly Rodger. His lower body is covered by Black shorts which due to Alex's small stature stretch down to just below his knees. His feet are bare as he has never been able to acquire footwear not that he would get any as he has grown used to it

    Personality: Chaotic good
    To say that Alex is playful and a bit of a troublemaker would be the understatement of the millennium. Growing up if he wasn't seen playing pranks on random villagers he was at the Marine base boasting of the feats he would accomplish when he became a pirate traits which only seemed to become more prominent after eating his Devil Fruit. This playfulness even finds its way into his fighting style making a game out of a serious situation is just how he is. He is perpetually cheerful and helpful to anyone in need of it. He seems truthfully unafraid of potential consequences and won't shy away from a fight. His ambition is to have the ultimate adventure and so he sets his sights on One Piece and the Grand Line

    Dream/Goal: Form and lead a crew of pirates on the ultimate adventure though the Grand Line and obtain One Piece.

    History: Alex's parents left him at an orphanage almost immediately after his birth so he has spent his entire life as an orphan. Alex didn't mind so much though as it was a nice orphanage, the people who ran the place were genuinely kind people and the other kids were fun to be around. Then maybe it was Alex who was the one who was fun to be around with his constant antics. Never one to let a place become dull Alex would tell everyone fantastic stories of what he would do when he became a pirate.

    At the age of 8 Alex started playing practical jokes on, kids in the orphanage, citizens of the village and even occasionally on the Marines though the latter usually led to the Marine lieutenant who Alex quite friendly with over the years coming to speak with the owners of the orphanage about Alex's behavior. He would just brush the scoldings of the middle-aged man and would come back with better pranks as time went on.

    When he was 10 years old pirates came to the village and burned many a building to the ground including the orphanage in their raid before the Marines drove them off. In the wake of the attack Alex discovered a small chest the pirates had dropped when they were running from the Marines. Opening it he found a strange looking fruit. His hunger overcame him and he ate the fruit although he would later discover that it was in face a Devil Fruit, a zoan to be exact which afforded the boy the ability to change his form to that similar to a monkey.

    With the orphanage destroyed and the owners dead, Alex led the other orphans that he would come to call his baboon platoon as something of a play at being a pirate. With his new abilities and cunning mind they were always able to "acquire" the food and other such things they needed to survive. Of course this led to Alex having more scoldings from the lieutenant who in a bid to teach the young boy discipline tried to train the boy to fight.

    Since then Alex has became quite the formidable opponent, what he lacks in strength and toughness he makes up for with speed, agility and acrobatics especially in his zoan form which thinking it cool in his childish mind saw fit to stay transformed most of the time and it was his monkey like form most of the villagers would come to recognize and he saw himself as something of a protector for the orphans. The lieutenant tried to teach him a rokushiki technique known as tekkai to compensate for his lacking in toughness. Alex is still trying to learn the technique but has bigger things on his mind as he wishes to leave and start his adventure he promised himself he would go on and sometime very soon he will leave the island forever.

    Crew: Baboon Platoon - as of now it is only Alex's make believe pirate crew with himself as captain but soon he shall attempt to make a real crew under the name with adventure in mind for all.

    Ship: To be updated

    Specialty/Profession: Pirate captain/Thief

    Rank: N/A

    Fighting Style: Alex carries his playful personality with him into the heat of battle. Combining the superhuman speed, agility and acrobatics that come from his Devil Fruit abilities, Alex likes to play with his opponents, taunting them when they miss and using his monkey like body to his advantage with some rather unorthodox moves

    Pogo tail punch/kick - uses his tail like a Pogo stick to propel himself into his opponent delivering a swift punch/kick to the face of his opponent

    Propeller kicks - Positions himself in a handstand and outstretches his legs in a n upside down splits-like stance then starts to spin using his legs like the propeller of an airplane to kick opponents in a wide radius or to deliver a barrage of kicks to a singular opponent

    Flying monkey headbutt - Jumps high into the air and crashes down on the opponent head first like a torpedo butting heads with the enemy

    Monkey wrecking ball - positions himself in a ball shape then uses his tail to set himself in motion using his body as a living weapon to trip his opponents

    Weapons: Now what fun would that be?

    Devil Fruit: Monkey Monkey fruit - zoan type fruit that transforms the users body into a form resembling a monkey. In this form Alex's body becomes covered in a thin layer of dark brown fur, his hair starts to stand causing two large turfs of hair to spike up on either side of his head and his nails turn black and sharp. In this form Alex's agility and speed rise to superhuman levels adding to his already agile frame. He can hang from trees and other objects using his tail and is capable of all manner of monkey-like feats. His strength while still not that impressive rises to the level of a full-grown man.

    Items: N/A

    Bounty: To be updated

    Color: Come on up, the game is just getting started

    I guess I'm just waiting on TFAJ to meet up with TFIJ. I'll get up a Ravenbeard post next.

    Are there any characters I need to add to the front page?

    Cool character, I have something of a fondness for monkey characters so obviously I like this one a lot. He's also very One Piece, a trait I have trouble giving to my characters. Anyways accepted.

    For starting advice, a lot of new users come in with the desire to make their own crew but for various reasons I'd' have to advice to at least initially take it slow, and tag along with other people/crews first.

    There are a couple of reasons why, but primarily people tend to overlook that it's not just all benefits to being a captain and that it brings a lot of responsibilities. Also as you could imagine, you might need to prove yourself in the eyes of others first. People don't know if you're going to stick around or if your style will match theirs.

    Finally though, could you do me a favor and decide on a specific type of monkey. So that other people who desire to make a monkey Zoan, would be able to chose a different type of monkey.

    Should I have them flashforward and head towards the TFAJ or whichever island this is going to take place? (Can't recall ATM)

    I believe so, at least one character of mine but I believe more. I'll go look them up for you.
    BTW thanks for unlocking that thread.

    Also Ten and Dapper are currently placed in different locations, but they'll be joining officially in the near future.

    So basically I should have Alex join one of the current crews for a while before I have him strike off and make one of his own. As for the type of monkey thing, not sure exactly what you mean, do you like specify if he's a baboon, orangutan, chimpanzee or whatever. Didn't exactly have a specific type in mind when I made the profile.

    That's an option if you want to do it like that, but we were more recommending that you create a character with the purpose of joining another crew. If you're dead set on forming your own thats all well and good, but you'll need to find a bunch of other people to create characters to join your crew too otherwise you'll be RPing all by yourself.


    As for the specific type of monkey, yeah I think that's what he was asking. It just gives the reader a more clear picture of what to imagine. It'd probably be a good thing to add.

    Example: If it's a chimpanzee, then he's probably going to be a more agile and speedy fighter whereas if he's a gorilla then he's going to be more based on brute strength most likely.

    The owners will need to confirm this but for the TFIJ it will most likely be.
    Shin
    Sendo
    Gumi
    Grani
    Kenneth
    Zell
    Possibly Riza

    I think that would be for the best, also the type of crew you seem to be after is a model that's already very popular. The Chaotic Good kind, I don't think we have enough of those characters to fill 3 different crews at this time.

    Alex's adventure will probably go a lot smoother if he builds a reputation first.

    That's what I meant. :)

    Not quite what I meant initially, he doesn't need to change Alex or make a different character per se. It might be easier on the RP as a whole, but I'll leave that to him.

    What I meant to say was that at least that at this moment, I don't think he should make his own crew at this moment. It's not something I recommend a new user to do, besides we also need to diversify a bit. I can't imagine seeing that much more Chaotic Good pirate characters, at least to the point that we could fill 3 separate crews with them.

    :hmm this might conflict with my statement that we have too many crews currently, but there actually happen to be some waiting lists for joining currently. Actually I think all of the (most) active crews already have quite a few characters waiting in line to join so that might be a problem.

    :hmm maybe we do need another Chaotic Good crew? It might be better for the balance. Though still, not right now.

    Anyways, I think it'll probably work out for the best if you stick with Alex ATM and get settled with him. You could always change your plans later but I think my initial advice to have Alex tag along with a crew for now will be the easiest method of getting settled in this RP.

    Yeah I can see what you mean because even in the manga, good pirates are pretty rare really in comparison to the ones that are bad so I can see why having 3 full crews of good pirates doesn't seem right.

    As for the monkey type thing, he is a Chimpanzee.

    I don't know both seem like good ideas. I may make a character specifically to join a crew. If I do it will be either an evil pirate or a Marine (good or bad) but I haven't really decided yet. So would any of the current crews be willing to have Alex join them for a while?

    Well my crew is recruiting, but luffy no haki is currently going slow with the updating, he got things on his hands. But things should pick up once Sheen and Helen joins. So I'm following Shin's advice with the waiting in line with crew members.

    Then again, you can get more people in the Grand Line, no need to get everyone now.

    Alright, just about to post again as Pazzo. The pirates are storming the main command deck, with all the marine elites there bar Nagger and the doctor, Yuri. Whoever was fighting Yuri has been sent by Pazzo to acquire the scientists research information for another part of his future plans. When Yuri is beat, Pyros chap can come to the Command deck to take part and witness the twisting finale.

    :hmm not sure if I should rework Saber or if I should instead go with my 12 rings character. I think going with both might be too much with all of my current characters.

    So either Saber is going to be my last PC for the time, and my 12 Rings character will be an NPC and won't be an infiltrator or I'll drop my plans for Saber.

    For the Ravenbeard Pirates
    Spoiler:

    Name: Alexander the II

    Age: 23

    Gender: Male

    Starting Location/Current Location: Grand Line, Reverse Mountain

    Appearance: Alexander is a young man whose appearance strikes fear into the hearts of others. He has spiky black hair and dark red eyes. His handsome face is marred by a challenging expression, as if goading others to give him their worst. He wears a sleeveless black shirt that displays his bulging arm muscles. Criss-crossing his chest are two sashes with 24 artillery shells each strapped on, ready for easy removal. He wears dark green pants and is of average build and height.

    Personality: Alexander is a man who believes the strong should yield to the weak. He is boastful and arrogant, believing himself superior to everyone until proven otherwise. He cares little for the company of others, preferring to seek out challenges for himself. He is a self centered, simplistic man who only wishes to fight. Despite this, he does have a sort of honor code. He never challenges someone he has outmatched and never resorts to trickery or groveling in a fight. He holds those stronger than him in reverence.

    Dream/Goal: To become the strongest man in the world

    History:
    History: Alexander the II was born to an Alexander that bore the title of "The Great" for his famous strength and kindness. He worked as a bounty hunter, defeating a great number of pirates in the Grand Line. He died a premature death, leaving Alexander to be raised by his mother. Alexander was the stark opposite of his father. Like his father he trained doggedly to become strong, but not to serve others. He sought strength purely for strength’s sake. He was constantly causing trouble, picking fights with grown men. Soon after his father died he set out to sea in search of stronger opponents. He is currently docked at the end of Reverse mountain, filling his days with fights against newly formed pirate crews and living off the supplies he takes as spoils.

    Crew: Ravenbeard Pirates


    Flag:


    Ship: The Savvy Singer


    Specialty/Profession: Jack of all trades/Brawler/Gunner (expert Marksman who mans and maintains the cannons).

    Weapons: Alexander brands a pair of brass knuckles and carries 48 six-pound artillery shells.

    Fighting Style: Alexander bases his technique on power, using devastating punches to debilitate the enemy in seconds. He has brutally fast reflexes; he’s able to deflect bullets with the brass knuckles on his fists. In close combat he’s like a demon, but he’s slowed somewhat by the ammo he carries. However, this inconvenience is made up for by the utility of his bullets. By tossing up or holding a bullet he sets it up for a punch that sends it rocketing forward like a cannonball, putting a hole in his opposition.

    Devil Fruit: None

    Bounty: o beli

    Sees what CT managed to write in little over an hour, thinks at how long his own posts take, goes to cry in a corner.:cry

    Accepted, this is one of those characters that make me hate we don't have our own anime. That whole bullet punch firing skills seems like it was made to be animated.
