Announcements / Canon Limit Increase?
« on: May 28, 2018, 10:31:05 AM »

The staff have been discussing the possibility of increasing the canon limit from three to four characters per player, and we figure the best way to decide is to ask you lovelies!  An increase means we could see more canons in play, but as cast sizes grow it's possible individual characters might be a little less active. 

Whatever your feeling, please place your vote now - the poll will run until the 4th of June!

Announcements / Roll Call #05!
« on: May 05, 2018, 10:58:54 PM »

It’s that time again!  Roll calls only apply to folks who aren’t known to be on hiatus (either by posting in the absences board or by contacting staff directly) and who have at least one approved character in play.  To be marked as present, all you need do is respond to this thread.  No post requirements, no stress, no fuss. <3

Because I’m late in getting this up (as per usual) it will run until the 14th of May inclusive.

Announcements / Site Update #04
« on: March 14, 2018, 03:19:34 AM »

This is a follow-up from Site Update #03 and, once again, its purpose is to report on important changes and outline developments that have taken place within the community, as well as shine the spotlight on you lovely members!


‹ Assault on Utopia ›

Assault on Utopia is well under way and its aftermath will be shaped by the actions and decisions of the characters involved.  Once the event draws to its close, Season 4 will be launched and the third year cadets will be ranked.  More information on graduation will follow in due course.

‹ Staff ›

I’m delighted to report that the wonderful, enthusiastic and creative Draco has joined our staff team as a moderator! <3

‹ Ask the Staff ›

Courtesy of Draco, we have an Ask the Staff thread to help with board maintenance.  If you need a topic moved or archived - or if you have a quick, non-personal question to ask - feel free to post in there so staff can assist.

‹ Training Roles ›

‘Mechanics and Engineering’ is now one of the subjects that cadets will study during their training and, as such, there is a corresponding instructor position available.  Feel free to check out the complete list of Training Corps Instructor Roles.

‹ New Boards ›

Training Corps Barracks & Grounds in Wall Rose has drawn together many of the cadets’ threads.  Out of character, you will find a shiny new Graphics & Fan Works board, as well as Character Development and Worldbuilding boards.

‹ New Membergroup ›

You may have already noticed that we have introduced a Deceased membergroup.  All characters who die in play will be moved to this category, and listed in this thread along with their date of death.  Deceased characters will still be able to post however, allowing them to continue creating threads set in the past.

‹ Discord ›

Two bots have been introduced to our Discord: Tatsumaki and RPBot.  We also have a tagbox channel, as suggested by SilverWings.


‹ New Events ›

‹ New Characters ›

‹ Wanted Characters ›

‹ Open Threads ›

That’s all for now! <3

Chat, Games & Banter / Prompt Game!
« on: February 24, 2018, 11:52:20 PM »
Okay, so the purpose of this little game is to inspire development and generally allow us to get to know one another's characters - as well as our own - a little better. ^_^

Basically, you respond to the prompt in the post above with how/why it relates to one of your characters (or, alternatively, with a headcanon or drabble) then finish off by providing a new prompt for the next person.  The prompt itself can be vague or specific, from a concept to a tangible thing to an emotion or a personality trait.

Sound good?  Good.  I'll start:


Chat, Games & Banter / Character Alignments! ⚔
« on: February 19, 2018, 11:12:05 PM »
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:

If you're not familiar with alignments, you can find more information on them here!

Chat, Games & Banter / Character Anthems / Playlists
« on: February 10, 2018, 03:20:18 PM »
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

Questions, Suggestions & Support / Ask the Staff
« on: February 10, 2018, 09:52:10 AM »

Need a thread archived or moved?  Found a bug that needs squished?  Got a quick suggestion you want to make?  You’re in the right place!  This is where you post should you need something taken care of or clarified by staff, assuming it’s not a private or critical matter.  Basically, use this thread to help us with board maintenance or to ask quick questions.

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.


‹ New Events ›

‹ New Characters ›

‹ Wanted Characters ›

That’s all for now! <3

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.
