Im-im-impossible!!



Premise
Gotham City. A dead-end town. It's the crime and corruption capital of the world, but its home. Whether you're a crook, a cop or just caught in the crossfire, Gotham City has been your playground since every since you left behind your playsets, and you've spent your whole life trying to either clean it up or make it that little bit dirtier.

From the outside, Gotham looks like another town that's about to cannibalize itself, clearly unable to keep its gangs and nutjobs in check. Someday soon it'll pass the point of no return and just fall apart at the seams. By the looks of things, that day will come sooner than you think.

But as its residents will soon find out, not all is as it seems in the Bat's City... and soon, things won't be so cut and dry...

Mechanics

In this RP, characters from other canons will find themselves in Gotham, stripped of their powers, equipment and memories. As part of the Illusion, they now believe themselves to be part of Gotham, and that they always have and always will be. Each chapter, one citizen will regain their memories of their lives before Gotham, using their experience to help unravel the source of the Mad Town. They will have to keep their new memories secret, however. Should they start telling stories of another world, they might find themselves in Arkham...

Rules
  1. Standard STC Rules apply​
  2. Try to keep things Civil. As GM, I will have final say in all disputes, but I doubt I'll need to​
  3. Players of all abilities and lengths are welcome but try to avoid image spamming. No more than 3 images/gifs per post​
  4. Try to post once per chapter. If your character falls 2 or more chapters behind, they will be killed off to keep things moving. The only true law in Gotham is the law of the battlefield, and he who falls behind is left behind.​
IMPORTANT

This is an Illusion game. In order to keep your characters 'true canon identity' secret, please PM me your application before posting it in the thread. Once approved, you can post the 'Gotham Resident' information in this sub, but you must not reveal your character's true self until the plot allows it.

"..."

Gothan Resident Name:
Charlie Chaplin Scotts

Gotham Resident Age:
Mid-30s

Gotham Resident Biography:
Charlie Scotts was a brilliant mechanic & programmer. One day, he was blamed for stealing ideas of technologies from Wayne Enterprises, which caused him to have a bad reputation and be scorned. Since then, he has had a grudge for them, and has began to talk less and less, even after such news subsided.
Penguin recognised his talents and recruited him. He worked his way up and eventually became the Communications Officer for organised crime, developing great loyalty towards Penguin in the process. He seems satisfied with working behind the scenes, because he knows that he's more dangerous on the inside than in the streets.

Faction:
Penguin's Criminal Empire
(Communications Officer)

Gotham Res. Skills:
He possesses great mechanical aptitude, capable of creating lifelike animal drones to spy on every nook and cranny of the city, their programming allowing them to act like actual animals. His animals of choice are cats and ravens, the former preferably black, but he branches out into other fur colours to avoid suspicion and broaden things.

With the above trait comes a great hacking ability. As communications officer, he does need to tap into as many voices as possible.

He has great skill in hand-to-hand combat, but he does prefer weapon usage, possessing skill in dual-wielding many weapon types.​

Gotham Resident Name: Harry Thomas Edwards

Gotham Resident Age: 33

Gotham Resident Biography:

A rich man with an intellectual mind, Harry was unfortunately a victim of a many robberies due to his gentlemanly, polite personality and big wallet. Although initially, he only put up more security and decided to hide away in his house drinking tea and reading books alone, eventually, he decided that enough was enough. Harry joined up on the police force, and became determined to clean up the city and keep his money safe once and for all.

Nowadays, although he is polite and competent at his job, he always seems a little distant from others, sometimes even ignoring orders and doing what he think is right. Although he hasn’t quite failed yet, this meant his co-workers and even the crowds are usually a bit suspicious of him.
Faction:

Gotham City Police Department (Detective)

Gotham Res. Skills:

Disguise, spying and other stealth fields are his most competent, although his deduction and investigation skill is quite good as well, since he’s a detective. Due to his clothing being quite restrictive, he is generally bad at unarmed combat, but is skilled with melee combat and is familiar with firearms. Also quite smart.​

Gotham Resident Biography:
Makoto was born to Middle-Class Gothamites, in a family who always wanted a son. As such, despite being a girl, she is often forced into dressing as a boy by her parents. Forcing soon became subconscience as Makoto learned to live with it. Deep inside, she still does want to live as a girl, but Makoto will soon learn that such desires are small in the grand scheme of things.

When she entered Gotham Academy, she found herself joining the Soccer Club, where she fancied herself one of their best players, while maintaining great grades, the face of a star student. One day, she stumbles upon an unapproved, underground school Club - the Detective Club. This club was bent on solving mysteries in and out of the Academy, which peaked her curiousity. Makoto wanted to delve in, and she soon corrupted herself into becoming a closet Conspiracy Theorist. After learning about tales of a Detective from another part of the country - a man known as The Question - she decides to adopt his name and design motif to spread conspiracies through the deep web.

These days, Kid Question, as we shall call her to avoid confusion with the actual mantleholder, is actively lurking out in the night of Gotham, trying to see conspiracies with her own eyes.

York

Just a newbie...
Resident Appearance:
A rather well built, but slim woman with long, braided blonde hair and piercing blue eyes. Her skin is a pale white color, making blending in more difficult had her figure not been shrouded in dark, red clothing. She is often carrying around at least one knife openly, with who knows how many others hidden away.

Gothan Resident Name:
Kidd Wilder (Better known as 'Kid')

Gotham Resident Age:
18

Gotham Resident Biography:
Kidd Wilder grew up on the streets, raised by Vagrants to become a Vagrant. Thus, she did whatever she could to get by, whether it be swindling or begging for cash, or sometimes pickpocketing those who seemed to have pockets too full for her tastes. However, as time went on, making a living this way, as a scavenger became more and more difficult. Gotham's streets, as unfriendly as they were had begun to swarm with gang activity, and those who were potential targets for her pickpocketing or swindling tactics would often carry a more oppressing aura about them. They had the kind of protection she would have difficulty evading if she were caught.

Thus, she began to seek out work amongst the streets of Gotham. Naturally someone with her record and background couldn't get a legitimate job, at least one that was legal. In the end, it ended up doing small-time muggings, dressed in a blood red cloak, using hit and run tactics... Namely involving cutting away valuables with knives, either up close, or eventually... Throwing them, once she got the hang of it (she would often practice on her downtime... Aiming for fluttering bits of newspaper, or leaves... Becoming frighteningly profficient in her arts overtime).

She made enough to get by, to live off of... But it was hardly a lavish life, as she was often forced to move from place to place to evade any prying eyes set on her... As she knew how dead she'd probably be if she drew the wrong kind of attention on herself in a place like this. Inevitably though, she did catch the eyes of one such gang; the Red Hood Gang. However, instead of eliminating her, they recognized that she had no prior affiliation, and eventually took her in as a recruit, realizing her skills could prove to be usefull to them... If given time to hone and develop.

Faction:
Red Hood Gang (Recruit)

Gotham Res. Skills:
Kidd is skilled in espionage, disguise, stealth, and assassination. She is infamous around Gotham for her frightening skill with knives, not just in close quarters combat... But throwing them, lots of them, as if they were mere darts. She is also known to be quite the pickpocket, lifting wallets, and other items from unsuspecting passerby with little effort. However, naturally, size matter when it comes to her uncanny pickpocketing abilities. An item more sizeable is less likely to be stolen in this way, without some help of course.​
