Hi, all. If you've been wondering where I've been, there was this thing where my sister got kidnapped and I had to go rescue her from a mortal enemy from my days as a time-travelling hitman, except there was this village where kids were disappearing and it turned out this crazy guy was controlling their minds, then ripping their hearts out to sacrifice them and—
Anyway, school's been kicking my ass lately, especially since I have to work as well as attend school plus 3-4 hours of homework each night.
With our first plot post winding up (I'm going somewhere with this guys, I swear!), feel free to post in the comm yourselves with big events of your own design. I'm really happy that you guys have been active in your own journals, as well. Sorry that I haven't. D:
Also: Mod(s) needed, since it is becoming painfully obvious that I do not have the time to devote to this comm as needed. PM me if you're interested and have the time.
Feel free to reply to this post with any concerns.
(OOC: I got tired of waiting for more people to join. We can have fun with only a few people, right? Right.
Plot: Robots are attacking Times Square! Even if they are suspiciously easy to defeat, they have laser firing optics, deadly weapons for arms, and plenty of civilians to attack. People are going crazy, buildings are being set on fire by lasers, and not everything is as it seems.)
Patriot ducked as another laser fired off near his head. Whatever happened to the time when killer robots had bullets, not lasers? Bullets wouldn't blast holes in him like he were tissue paper. He rolled out of the way of yet another blast and threw his shield into the chest of a robot. Patriot kicked in the head of another, causing it to crumple to the ground, useless.
This was absolute chaos. Usually, 47th Street was so crowded you could hardly breath, especially this close to Times Square, but now it was swarming with robots and panicked civilians. People were running everywhere, screaming, trying to avoid the lasers and random sharp appendages that some of the robots had. (He thought he saw one with a chainsaw arm earlier.) Speaking of...
Patriot hurriedly ducked another sword limb and looked around for his shield. He was running out of throwing stars, and there didn't seem to be any end to the flow of robots. Even if they were easy to destroy, one lonely super soldier vs 200+ robots with lasers were not good odds. Sure, Eli didn't doubt that he could defeat most of them, if he got creative, but there was no way he could keep people from getting hurt.
He swung his shield into the chest of another robot, destroying it, then used its arm to cut another in half.
Come to think of it, why were these robots easy to defeat? They didn't even have good aim. Almost like they were made to—
"Holy—!" He jumped out of the way just in time as a laser meant for his heart scorched the ground behind him.

comment with an RP sample. This is required for both canon and original characters. The RP sample should be 2-5 paragraphs long (though, for OCs, I recommend that it be longer). Anything is allowed so long as A) it isn't explicit content, B) it is a good example of who your character is, how you'll be playing them, and what the character is like. :D( Under the Cut!Collapse )
