As a DnDer, it was only a matter of time before this thread appeared... XD 

It's quite simple, share what alignment you believe your cast to have!  Not all of my characters are accounted for yet, but here are some of my li'l goody two-shoes:

I know a lot of writers tend to make playlists for their characters.  Even if not, maybe there is a song that you consider their anthem!  This is just a thread for us to share them. <3

Chat, Games & Banter / Character Voices!
« on: February 04, 2018, 02:16:51 PM »
It recently occurred to me that just because an OC has a particular face claim it doesn't mean they actually sound like that character.  So this is just a bit of fun, to share with everyone your charrie's voice as you hear it, and to share some related headcanons if you so please!  Canons are welcome too, should you fancy showing off their dulcet tones - or maybe you have a preference between their Japanese and English voice actors. ;)

I'mma come back with others in due course but, for now, just to get the thread started, here are my lovely canon boys:

♢  ELD JINN | Related headcanon:  Eld doesn't much like his voice.  To his ears, it sounds nasally, like he's always on the verge of a cold.  He is musically inclined, and as a boy he sang on street corners for coin, but once he joined the Survey Corps his songs are seldom heard.  Eld also has a tendency to speak quietly, born of a childhood spent trying to go unnoticed.  He calls his friends and colleagues by pet names and other terms of endearment.

♢  IAN DIETRICH | Related headcanon:  Smoking has roughened the edges of Ian's voice.  He reads a lot, which shows in his diction, and helps disguise his lowly roots.  Over the years, he has tired to reduce the amount of swear words he drops into conversation, as well as attempted to iron out some of his impoverished Krolva accent.  He uses a lot of colloquialisms, some of which are off and specific to his home district, and isn't afraid to raise his voice.

♢  MARCO BOTT | Related headcanon:  Marco thinks before he speaks, choosing his words carefully, which gives his sentences a measured pace.  His voice will deepen a little more after graduating, levelling out into his adult cadence.  As of the present day, he harbours an undiscovered flare for dirty talk.

Chat, Games & Banter / Random Headcanons!
« on: January 03, 2018, 11:34:13 AM »
This is just as thread for you folks to post your headcanons or small details/quirks about your characters.  Little things all add to a bigger picture. <3

Eld Jinn

•  Years of abuse in the family home mean he sleeps in a defensive position, with his head either under his pillow or his face hidden in the crux of his elbow.

Ian Dietrich

• Prefers to travel on foot rather than on horseback.
• His lithe build, general fitness and years of thievery make him an impressive runner.  He’s one of those rare breeds of people that is capable of brilliant bursts of speed, as well maintaining a steady pace for many miles.  Not bad for a smoker.

Plotters / Utopia Event Plotting!
« on: January 01, 2018, 03:48:03 PM »

If you haven’t seen it already, go check out the Assault on Utopia event!  Basically, it would be amazing to get enough cadets involved to have a roulette to randomly set the teams, with the size of the groups depending on how much interest there is.  Kind of like the winter aptitude event all over again. ^^  Of course, there’s nothing to stop you guys deciding amongst yourselves who your character(s) are with, this is just a randomised element for those who like surprises!

It might also be worth talking generally about the strategy that’ll be employed, and what role each team will have in the overall mission.  I may even see about getting a Discord channel set up for folks to specifically discuss and plan for this event.

Announcements / Site Update #03
« on: January 01, 2018, 03:32:06 PM »

This is a follow-up from Site Update #02 and, once again, its purpose is to report on important changes, outline developments that have taken place in the community and shine the spotlight on you lovely members!


‹ Season 3 ›

Season 3 has launched!  Be sure to read over the Season 2 synopsis, which has been updated to reflect this progression.  Past threads are still very much encouraged and they can even add to the overarching plot of earlier years, as long as it doesn't directly affect the present-day storyline.  If you have any doubts, queries or suggestions, please don't hesitate to reach out to staff.  We love to hear your ideas and are more than happy to help.

‹ Assault on Utopia ›

Assault on Utopia is a staff-led event that marks our first major divergence from the canon.  Being an alternate universe retelling of Attack on Titan, the plot on Reluctant Heroes will differ to what we have seen in the anime and manga.  Artsy and I are laying the groundwork, but member and their characters will still have the power to influence and shape the storyline!

‹ Important OCs ›

Following the above developments, a cast of important original characters (including Titan-shifters) will be listed for adoption in the near future.  Keep your eyes peeled!

‹ Staff ›

Our lovely moderator, Rose, has decided to stand down from her staff position.  Luckily for us, she's sticking around as a member, and will be here to continue writing and plotting.

Season 3 / Assault on Utopia
« on: December 31, 2017, 12:23:43 AM »

‹ WHEN ›

August, Year 847


Utopia District, Wall Rose


Cadet - Civilian - Garrison - Military Police - Noble - Survey Corps - Training Corps


The unthinkable has happened.  Shortly before midday, on a warm August morning, a man dressed in Garrison garb ascended Wall Rose at Utopia District and entered the barbican.  There, he methodically dispatched the soldiers acting as watchmen, barricaded the door, and engaged the gate mechanism.  The rumble and creak of the rising portcullis was the only warning the citizens had of impending doom.  These details and more have yet to emerge; first and foremost, the region must be defended, its civilians evacuated and the gate closed.  This is a deliberate assault on humanity by humanity and their choice of district is no accident.  Titans most often appear in the south, where they are drawn to the bustle of Trost, or even to Krolva in the west or Karanes in the east.  As the northernmost and arguably safest district, Utopia operates on a skeleton crew and has minimal military presence.  Yet, as witnesses to the disaster will later attest, there appear to be an unnatural and unexpected number of Titans pouring into the settlement.

As flares paint the sky and calls for aid are sent out along Wall Rose, it must fall to those few stationed in the district to act as the first line of defence, until support arrives.  Just a few miles from Utopia’s inner gate stands the Training Corps barracks, where the cadets are enjoying the last few days before their graduation.  Today, they will be mobilised, and asked to offer their hearts to humanity.

Season 3 / Internship
« on: December 29, 2017, 05:46:44 PM »

‹ WHEN ›

April, Year 847


Utopia Dictrict, Wall Rose


Cadet - Garrison - Military Police - Survey Corps


The cadets are in the final few months of training, soon to make the life-changing choice: which faction to serve?  In April, for two weeks, all cadets will undergo a placement with the regiment of their choice.  They will not operate as full soldiers (those with the Survey Corps would not be permitted to go on an expedition beyond the Walls, for example, nor would a cadet with the Military Police be authorised to make arrests) but it is hoped the experience will give them a taste of what their choice would ultimately entail.  Each faction is keen to recruit, so whether the experience is authentic is up for debate.  All placements will take place within Utopia District, with the cadets staying in the barracks of their chosen regiment.

« on: December 29, 2017, 01:58:50 PM »

Still in progress...

The cadets are in their final year of training, now stationed near Utopia District.  In August, the top ten will be announced and they alone will have the option of joining the Military Police.  All others will make their choice between the Survey Corps or the Garrison Regiment.  In some circumstances, some may choose to remain with the Training Corps as instructors.

Announcements / Year 846: Cadet Barracks?
« on: December 20, 2017, 08:28:38 PM »

As many of you lovelies know, our cadets will be based in a different region for each of their three years of study.  Year 845 saw the soldiers-in-training stationed just north of Trost District, but where would you like to see them situated in the current season?  All of the options pertain to Wall Rose, as space in the interior is so highly valued.  Rather than be within the crowded Districts themselves, the barracks will be nearby, in the countryside.

Place your votes now, the poll will run until the 28th of December!

Announcements / Roll Call #03!
« on: December 08, 2017, 10:23:18 AM »

After a quiet spell, we’re back and ready to rock ‘n’ roll!  This roll call is just to check who is ready for the great Reluctant Heroes revival.  To be marked present, either post in this thread or nudge a staff member on Discord.  As always, to make things interesting, feel free to reply with a gif.

This will run until the 31st of December inclusive, allowing everyone plenty of time.  We will then revert to the usual pattern of roll calls in February 2018.
