    As I've said before, if someone wants to start one again I'm in. If nobody will step up, I could moderate it.

    Alright, good, I'll start up another thread and we can all get our characters down again and I'll put up a roster. We'll finish the mission we were on before the last one died so we can just put it all to rest. Unfortunately, I've totally forgotten where we left off and what was happening, lol. I'll look it up and read it so I can get a good idea of where we left off so it'll still be somewhat coherent.
    Hopefully we can start right off in a day or two. I'll try and find my old tabletop RPG dice and we can have a pretty authentic experience.

    I cast Phoenix Down.

    @ Tet: If you can, please change the title of this thread to “The Off-topic Crew’s RP OOC Discussion”. I don’t want to make a new thread for the sole purpose of discussing our RP, so I’m recycling this one. Hopefully you don’t mind.

    ^Anyway, who starts things off? Is anyone interested in going over the characters last moment, or do we start off in the room of the black ball right away?
    Off: MGB do you have a tabletop RPG dice too?

    ^ It’s up to you. If you want to go over your character’s last moments in detail, go for it. Personally, I believe the more complex the character, the more satisfying the role-play experience.

    As for the dice, no, I don’t, but I found an online program yesterday that should work all the same.

    Gonna post my sheet here again just for sure:

    GANTZ name: Fucking poser

    Sex: M

    Height: 168cm

    Weight: 75kg (150pounds)

    Hair Color: - Black

    Eye Color: - Black

    Language(s): - Japanese and a few words in english.

    Career: - College

    Appearance: Suit with his white sunglasses/red belt.

    Strength : - Kendo experience of his childhood. LGun-arcade shooter. Medium experiences in gang brawls.

    Weakness: - a damn show-off poser. No high aspects about woman fighting. Not easy with complete strangers

    Personality: - Still a good and helpful guy, depends on the situation, but on the other side he's silent and introvert.

    Background: His father is a shinto priest. He lives alone cuz' they don't have much in common. Mother died early. He's torn due his father's spiritual life as a shinto and his daily existence as a college gang member and commercial addict. Though his current life's not spiritual, he's still a believer of shinto principles.

    Death: Being crunched to pieces when he fell into a garbage truck's refuse chute (had a scooter crash before, during a hunt down of another gang group) <-- Does anybody recall that death scene with "Once upon a time in America"?

    Time outside of Gantz: - You can find him around Shinjuku places, where he's around with his gang. Quarrels with his gang members bout priorities in life already started
    I hope Ura's gonna post his huge sheet - I wanna read that...

    EDIT: K', I'm the first contestant entering, hope I don't fight alone lol... But still strange to play a noob, when you already know all the stuff about Gantz. Well, let's see about the story development...

    EDIT2: Btw, how many players has the other Gantz rpg? Would be nice if we can merge their rpg and ours later after this arc... if we survive lol.

    Okay, character sheet is here. Oh yeah, I favor the past tense when writing, so bear with me okay?

    Age: 21
    Gender: M
    Height: 1.88m
    Hair: Black
    Eyes: Blue
    Ethnicity: Japanese/Caucasian (More Japanese than Caucasian if you ignore height and blue eyes)
    History: Legally Adopted Son of Catholic Priest, Yuki does not remember much from his early childhood. A priest in training under the direct tutorship of his father for most of his life. He is a genius pianist with a strong creative sense (hasn't played since his father's death)
    His father ran afoul of a small time Yakuza boss when Yuki was 18, and was shot, and dumped in a bin. Yuki found out, walked into the den of the boss with two guns and shot everything on sight - The yakuza boss was a woman, but he did not hesitate when it came to pulling the trigger.
    He broke ties with the church afterwards, and found himself a job as a barman. Is very good at it. He takes an occasional smoke, but what has survived of his moral code keeps him from becoming a heavy smoker. Invariably wears a plain white shirt, jeans and sneakers, unless the weather absolutely demands something warmer.
    Occupation: Barman
    Cause of Death: He grew tired of living with his guilt, but couldn't bring himself to commit suicide, so instead, he walked right into the middle of a shootout.

    Strengths: Has Killed humans before, so killing aliens shouldn't be too hard for him. Is familiar with the use of guns under live fire, so won't panic when things start getting edgy. Has been following the story of the guys in "black suits" ever since they gained prominence, and has obtained a number of low rez mobile phone vids on the oni mission, and osaka (assuming the mission is post osaka, of course.), so has a general idea of what to expect, at least as soon as he sees the suit. Excellent sense of observation, and an exceptionally good judge of character (result of his priest training). Knows the bible by rote (lol)
    Weaknesses: Not necessarily an introvert - he has good people skills, considering he is a barman - but outside of his job, he has kept to himself for the better part of the last three years, he'll have problems going beyond the small talk. Has a decided preference for guns, and will favor them over any other weapon in any circumstances. Smokes. Has a habit of always saying what he thinks on people without any toning down or embellishment, which can result in very frictional relationships.
    Inventory: White Shirt, Jeans, Sneakers, Pack of Cigarettes, Lighter.

    weight:180 pounds
    height:5ft, 7in
    language:japanese(asian)
    occupation:clerk, college student
    hair color:brown
    eye color:black
    appearance: clerk apron, street clothes, sneakers, medium build, short hair, brass knuckles.

    death: While the store was being robbed, he was shot in the head due to the robbers not knowing he was mute, and thought he was makign fun of them.

    weakness: Can't talk, not good around others, tends to overall not care.

    strength: Surprisingly strong despite his appearance, and slightly agile in comparison to the average person, with medium knowlege of hand to hand combat.

    background: Was born mute, due to complications in birth, as such Taki was bullied more than normal, and took up learning how to fight because of it. Due to general scumbaggery kept brass knuckles on him in emergency situations. Parents are normal people with nothing out of the normal in their lives other than their son. Because of which he tends to feel disconnected from people in general and doesnt work well with others.

    personality: Tends to keep to himself, also has the affinity to not give a damn, even in the most high stress situations. Doesn't work well with others mainly because of the encumbering effects of being mute.

    inventory: Brass knuckles(for protection), street clothes, clerk apron.
    (btw does anyone know if gantz would cure muteness?)

    Sure, I'll post mine up. The irony is that I gave the char too many features but ended up making an incomplete sheet

    Age: 19
    Gender: M
    Height: 5'10
    Hair: Black
    Eyes: Brown
    Race: Asian (Chinese) & Caucasian (Italian)

    History:
    Born an only child to an aristocratic family. Due to the political nature of the family, Luca Benneduchi was born into a fractured family-his parents only married for political reasons and the family's power forced them to constantly move (lived in Paris, Venice, Shanghai, and Tokyo) and live under strict protection. At age 12, his family was betrayed by his uncle, resulting in their execution before him and the seizure of his estate by his uncle. Assumed dead after a severe beating, Sawamura was found and nursed by a nearby orphanage, where he took up the pseudonym Sawamura Sousuke.

    After two years of shuffling homes and forming a close relationship with fellow orphans, Sousuke was sold into a circus troupe, where he was raised to be the head clown and inheritor of the circus.

    Sousuke intends to become a famous clown and bring his troupe fame, with a major side goal being to seek revenge for his parents without changing his new lifestyle.

    Profession: Clown

    Cause of death: Sousuke had snuck into his uncle’s mansion disguised as a bodyguard and cornered his uncle in his bedroom. Shocked to see the man reading to his son, Sousuke was shot twice from behind by his aunt.

    Strengths: Sousuke can be characterized as incredibly intelligent (strategic, and knows 5 languages -French, Italian, English, Mandarin, and Japanese) , calculating, athletic, persuasive, an excellent actor, and very loyal. He was recognized as a genius in his youth before his parents’ deaths for his strong deductive abilities. The way his parents died left him very bitter, and he intends to avenge them by killing his uncle after gathering the necessary resources. The care and friendship he received at the orphanage made him loyal to his friends and caretakers, and his experiences at the circus have made him a socialite and an excellent actor. He can read peoples’ emotions very well and is excellent at persuading them. The demands of being a clown have also made him very powerful and dexterous.

    Weaknesses:

    Sousuke’s loyalty and intelligence tend to get in the way of each other. He often chooses to mislead his own allies in order to achieve his and their purposes and safety because when he is forthright with them, they either feel degraded or stupid before him when he shares his insights. He also comes off as elitist or pompous if he fully shares his insight.So he is often initially mistrusted for lying or for being too intelligent, though he tends to gain his allies trust after achieving results.

    His loyalty also occasionally makes him reckless in his attempts to rescue his allies.
    I based this guy's character off of Hisoka from HxH and Pierrot from Yakitate!Japan!! (who was also based off of Hisoka).
    Stolen Sig Count: 26

    ^Nice, He was my fave character from HXH.

    Name: Victoria Vicelli
    Age: 17

    Gender: F

    Height: 5'6

    Hair: Brown

    Eyes: Brown

    History: Born in middle-class suburbans. She came from a family of sisters.
    She is known for being very fun to talk to but a little empty-headed. She is very popular without trying to be and oblivious to most gossipers, yet is still sucked into the school drama scene. On the inside however, she is really a considerate girl with her own insecurities. She is more aware of her situation than most people realize and a lot more intelligent than most people realize.

    Profession: Student

    Cause of death: Was hanging out with some friends. The driver and his buddy went and got drunk without her or her other friend knowing. Without realizing that he was piss drunk, Vicky got into the car and of course the asshole flipped it killing everyone except himself.

    Strengths: Has amazing social skills and has the ability to charm men (though she is also kind enough not to take advantage of them.) She is also pretty atheletic due to cheerleading.

    Weaknesses: Even though she may be a lot smarter than most people give her credit for, her emptyheaded personality sometimes gets the best of her. She is also too trusting and unused to change or disasterous situations (naive).
