Alright, I've got a question concerning the conditions in general quarters. Do the usual, generic quarters have computers in them? Or is it just Captain's quarters? I'm wondering if a character could have searched the web and accessed databanks while in their quarters.

Also, since data pads are the equivalent of paper documents, is it possible to draw on them? Could you draw and doodle on a data pad instead of writing stuff on it?

A military frigate like the Guardian or Ultrax could be compared to SSV Normandy SR-2 of Mass Effect 3 in terms of layout. Captain and officer or two may have private quarters, the rest of the crew have to share living areas. There are no private computers for the crew but there should be several public computer access points within the lounge and crew quarters. So, yeah - characters can access various networks from these terminals within limitations generally associated with military.

Datapad is a mere display. TFs can control the datapads directly with impulses sent by their brain modules, thus they can 'draw' or 'write' on the pads - they just don't need their hands to do so.

Up to you. You can target your post to a specific character or, as you said, leave it open.

As to your second query, you can make such a request in the chatterbox if you want, but the players around here are pretty good at picking up on a character/location and weaving in if they can, so it's usually not too much of a necessity.

If your application has been approved, but the character roster list hasn't been updated yet, should you wait for the update?

They're the same thing. Personally I tend to call the 'Bots' repair area the Medical Bay while I refer to the 'Cons' the Repair Bay. *shrug* But that's just me.

So... What if I told you that I made an application for Sideways that could actually work in the game...

*Puts on overly-reflective sunglasses*

Would you let me apply for him?

If not, I did just have an idea for Astroscope as a character.

Your reaction.

My reaction. < If you understand German, then I don't think that this will be well-suited for younger audiences.

I know this is a G1 RPG, but..since Transformers: War For Cybertron was originally a prequel to G1, do the events in the game count in the RPG?

Was thinking about posting a dream for Steelhand while he's recharging if I've got some spare time, but I wonder;

If it's a dream, and thus not the real world, is permission still required to write someone elses character in it?

Nah, since it's a dream, it's just your character's subjective experiences and interpretations of whatever character might appear in the dream. Since it has no bearing on a player's actual character, you're fine.

Answering to this pretty late but better now or never I guess. It is case specific. Generally events in the TF games do not count in the RPG. But some of their ideas might be possible to add to the RPG timeline after moderator review.

Hello, new here!

Registration is always open. In fact registration will always be open. As far as how frequent we post...well that depends on a couple of factors...like how active the thread is, how many players are involved, where(as in location of the story), whether you're involved in a side story. I could go on, but I think you get the idea.

So, yes we want new players...and if you're interested in joining in please feel free and throw up an app *cough* canons are fun *cough* and we'll see if we can't get you in.

Hope that helps, new here. :grin:

I moved this post to this topic because the application thread should be used only for the applications of characters. If you have any questions pertaining to the RPG please post them here.

As for your request...I'm sorry but Blackstar is a fanmade and therefore belongs to the character's creator. You'll need to choose a canon character...the list of available, NPC and taken characters can be found Here or you're more than welcome to create your own fanmade.

Welcome :D

Just to reiterate what ember said above, poking through the character list is always a good idea when one is canon browsing. We try to keep it pretty up to date with who's playing whom.

Blitzwing, as you'll see, is taken, but there are plenty of others waiting for good players to take them on.

As for Unicron, I wouldn't hold my breath :D
