It’s been a while!  As always, 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.  Given that we’ve been through a quiet spell recently, and lockdown lethargy is real, there are no activity requirements.

Wanted Ads / Mitabi Jarnach: Garrison Team Leader!
« on: January 17, 2020, 10:00:01 AM »

There is a whole host of Garrison soldiers in play, including Ian Dietrich and Rico Brzenska - and we would love to see the Garrison Dream Team Trio complete!  Mitabi is a 6’3” gentle giant and an immensely capable and brave team leader to boot. His top skill is his top skill is life-risking.  Seriously.

If he joins the 88th Cadet Corps (May 829 - August 831) he will be training alongside Nanaba, Ian, Rico, Gustav, Anka and Arkin. There would be a host of plotting opportunities between aptitude tests, classes and downtime, all laying foundations for some lifelong friendships. That's to say nothing of the site's current season, with the Utopia event.

You can read more about Mitabi on the Wikia.

Wanted Ads / Wolves of Wall Sina [The Valdeze Siblings]
« on: January 03, 2020, 12:05:53 AM »
When Laurel and Ianthe exchanged vows, two ambitious minds forged an alliance that transcended mere marriage.  An immensely wealthy couple, they have sought to produce as many heirs as possible, orchestrating their brood's rise into positions of prominence and power.  Laurel inherited much of his fortune from his own father, and has further bolstered it by expanding his mining company, offering loans, and investing in his children's projects.  Not one of them has had what could be considered a normal or healthy childhood and they are bound primarily by blood and ambition.  They have dirty hands, fire in their hearts, and intelligence to burn.  Individually they are formidable, together they are an empire. 

Face claims are flexible, as long as they generally fit the Valdeze image.  All of these characters will have been expected to take up suitably noble pastimes and to attend university - their degrees and interests can be tweaked.  Names can also be changed if required.  Their outlines are vague, you are welcome to expand on them or suggest your own!

Sephor
the weight of the world

suggested face claim // Seizaki Zen from Babylon
► Firstborn. 39 years old. Married with children. Studied Law. Intense, serious, weary, overburdened, committed. Set to inherit the lion's share of the Valdeze mines.

Lysander
spare to the heir

suggested face claim // Kousuke Ooshiba from Hitorijime My Hero
► Secondborn. 37 years old. Studied Mathematics. Lurks in his elder brother's shadow. Owns and operates a number of munitions factories, and has contracts with the military.

Elys
build them up, break them down

suggested face claim // Sebastian Michaelis from Black Butler
► Thirdborn. 36 years old. Studied Civil Engineering. Manages numerous construction companies and has some renown as a town planner.  If Utopia is saved, he will be vying for the contract to rebuild the district.

Alein
they almost look alive

suggested face claim // Kiyotaka Yagashira from Kyoto Teramachi Sanjou no Holmes
► Fourthborn. 35 years old. Studied Biology. Works as a taxidermist and is an avid hunter. Breeds hounds. Focuses on acquiring as much land as possible, particularly farmland and areas with natural resources such as forests, quarries and reservoirs. Supplies raw materials to Elys. - Taken!

Lucille
love me and despair

suggested face claim // Elsa Granhiert from RE:Zero
► Fifthborn. 34 years old. Studied Art. A talented sculptress and portrait painter. Widowed several times. Inheritances from her previous husbands make her the wealthiest of the Valdeze siblings. Runs a number of brothels across Paradis through proxies.  Deals in secrets and rumours.

Galeran
life and soul of the party

suggested face claim // Hirato from Karneval
► Sixthborn. 33 years old. Studied Architecture. The gregarious wild card of the Valdeze family. Owns a number of racehorses. His parties are famous amongst the nobility. Gatsby has nothing on Galeran.

Lyra
yeah, science bitch

suggested face claim // Akiko Yosano from Bungou Stray Dogs
► Eighthborn. 29 years old. Studied Chemistry. Intensely focused, obsessive, highly intelligent, literal to the point of being almost humourless. Outwardly contributes to medicinal advancements, but behind closed doors develops illicit drugs. There is potential for her to have connections to Anzai Engelbrecht.

Jarin
cut from the same cloth

suggested face claim // Yu Kanda from D.Gray-man
► Ninthborn. 26 years old. Studied Textiles and Materials. Talented dancer. Finds employ as a tailor to the very wealthy; this work is scorned somewhat by his father, but it allows him to make numerous useful connections. Interested in swordsmanship. - Reserved!

Artor
the rising star

suggested face claim // Seiya Ryuuguuin from The Hero Is Overpowered
► Tenthborn. 24 years old. Studied Music but dropped out of university. Excels in swordsmanship, equestrian tournaments and archery, his dramatic performances earning him something of a fan base. Currently under pressure from his father to return to university and complete his studies.

Meera
the people's princess

suggested face claim // Ueno Naoka from Koe no Katachi
► Eleventhborn. 21 years old. Studied Medicine. Charitable and seemingly sweet, her charm and apparent innocence makes her the most widely beloved of the Valdeze. This contrived, pristine image and reputation means Meera is capable of damage control should her siblings ever allow their masks to slip. There is a possibility of an arranged marriage plot/engagement in future. - Taken!

Announcements / Site Update #06
« on: January 01, 2020, 10:52:54 PM »

This is a long overdue follow-up from Site Update #05 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!



IMPORTANT NEWS

‹ Assault on Utopia ›

The Assault on Utopia is still ongoing!  Although there is no conclusive end in sight, the event will not run indefinitely, so we would encourage everyone to post in the respective threads whenever possible.  In order to keep the storylines moving forward, the posting orders do not need to be maintained, and participants are instead invited to post whenever time and muse permits.

‹ 104th Cadet Corps Rankings ›

We now have a thread detailing the 104th Cadet Corps Rankings.  Cadets can sign up for their placement and chosen regiment ahead of graduation, which will take place once the Assault on Utopia event ends.

‹ Cadet Corps Through the Years ›

Similarly, we now have a thread outlining the Cadet Corps Through the Years.  You are welcome to sign up existing characters as well as important NPCs, so we can easily keep track of who graduated in which cohort and who their fellow cadets were.

‹ Guides & Tutorials ›

Courtesy of Webs, we now have some wonderful Guides & Tutorials available on-site!  These aim to offer guidance and advice on a range of roleplaying aspects.

‹ Rules Update ›

There has been a Rules Update.  Furthermore, per excessive gore, violence, and other mature (but still within the realm of AoT themes) threads, we’re going to permit them on any main forum provided there is a bolded and very clear warning for such themes. The Mature Board will remain strictly for 18+ characters and may have this content as well, if you are more comfortable putting it there - just send through a membership request if it’s needed!

‹ New Membergroup ›

We now have a Government Official membergroup, to include the likes of Darius Zackly and other characters who do not sit within the military regiments.

Claims / 104th Cadet Corps Rankings
« on: December 29, 2019, 02:43:35 PM »
This is where characters from the 104th Cadet Corps can sign up for their rank! Previously, cadets were trained in four separate divisions (Northern/Eastern/Southern/Western) each with their own top ten. The 104th brings together conscripts and enlistees from across all regions, meaning we instead have a top forty. All of these cadets qualify to join the Military Police, if they so choose.

For canonical reasons, the top four positions will remain the same as in the southern division, as there are factors to explain why these characters excel. If you play one of these canons (Mikasa, Reiner, Bertholdt, Annie) and wish for them to place differently, you are welcome to either post below or contact staff to change their ranking.

Other positions will be decided randomly, using our ranking system. The ranks are as follows:

Rank A: 1-20 (eligible for the Military Police)
Rank B: 21-40 (eligible for the Military Police)
Rank C: 41-60
Rank D: 61-80
Rank E: 81-100
Rank F: 101-120
Rank G: 121-140
Rank H: 141+

Choose one rank per character and post it below (e.g. Jaylen Ponsen - Rank C). You have the further option of specifying whether you would prefer your character to place in the top half or bottom half of their selected rank (Higher/Lower). Cadets will then be randomly assigned a position within that bracket via dice roll. Please also include the chosen regiment your character will graduating into, if known (e.g. Jaylen Ponsen - Rank C - Higher - Garrison).

We advise ranking your character fairly, in a way that realistically reflects their performance in threads and events alike. If a cadet has consistently struggled with aptitude tests, or continually failed to apply themselves during lessons and exams, they are unlikely to place highly. Similarly, cadets who achieve Rank A would be considered exceptionally proficient, and are the crème de la crème of the entire intake.

Note: Characters who perished during the Assault on Utopia will still be included in the roster and should be ranked. Their chosen regiment is not required.

If you are unhappy with how your character(s) have placed, or wish to request a specific rank for plotting or canonical reasons, please contact staff.

We will be rolling as and when folks sign up! ^^

1. Mikasa Ackerman
2. Reiner Braun

Chat, Games & Banter / Manga Chapters 1 - 34: Discussion
« on: November 04, 2019, 10:38:23 PM »
Whether you're revisiting the series or reading it for the first time, this is the place to discuss your thoughts pertaining to Volume 1, Chapter 1 - Volume 8, Chapter 34, which equates to season one of the anime. You can view the manga at Read Shingeki no Kyojin Online.

We're hoping to make this something of a book club and are planning on following the below schedule:

➤ Season One (Volume 1, Chapter 1 - Volume 8, Chapter 34):

November - December 2019

➤ Season Two (Volume 9, Chapter 35 - Volume 13, Chapter 51):

January - February 2020

➤ Season Three (Volume 13, Chapter 52 - Volume 18, Chapter 72):

March - April 2020

If you've seen the anime, are there any differences that surprised you? Who are your favourite characters and what were your favourite scenes?

Please don't spoil anything from other chapters/seasons in this topic!

Plotters / Horsemanship Event Plotting
« on: October 27, 2019, 05:39:27 PM »
Okay, so this for the Horsemanship Aptitude Test.

There was interest on Discord for a roulette to randomly divide the participants into pairs, so here we are! Post here (or DM me, webs or Guards) if you want a cadet added or removed. ^^

  • Claude
  • Ollie
  • Jean
  • Armin
  • Sebastian
  • Darcy-Jo
  • Dalton
  • Marco
  • Struna
  • Layla
  • Hilda
  • Krista

Feel free to simply plot and pair characters in the traditional way, if that's what you prefer, the roulette is just a bit of fun. :)

The randomisation will take place on Tuesday!

(Y'all better hope your character isn't paired with Struna. XD)

EDIT:

I should probably add that you're free to use this thread for general plotting around the event.

Announcements / Rules Update
« on: April 09, 2019, 08:24:02 PM »

Hey everyone! This is just an announcement to draw your attention to a few new rules that are being introduced. They relate primarily to activity and hiatuses; we have tried to ensure they are achievable for everyone and in keeping with Reluctant Heroes being a slow-paced site. The canon limit has also been removed. If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to reach out to staff. <3

Here are the additions:

  • The structure of application templates should not be changed.  Additional headers or lyrics may be added, but no sections or images can be removed.
  • There is no limit on how many characters you can have (it is up to you to judge how many you can manage).  In the interests of fairness, we naturally ask that members please refrain from choosing more than 1 main or pivotal canon. We currently classify the following as being pivotal: Annie Leonhart, Armin Arlert, Bertolt Hoover, Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman, Reiner Braun. This list is subject to change but amendments will never affect characters already in play.
  • Canon characters are expected to make at least two posts per activity check (two calendar months), while original characters are expected to make at least one post.  The relevant threads/posts should be linked to when responding to a roll call. In the event that you are going to be inactive for a time, please let us know via the absences board.  Your post should include an estimated return date. Where a return date isn't supplied, a hiatus will be considered lapsed after two activity checks (four calendar months). At this time, character claims will expire.

I’m delighted to report that Guardsman93 has joined our staff team as a moderator, and that Webs is now an administrator!  They are both friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, so please don’t hesitate to approach either of them if you have any questions or suggestions. <3

‹ Prefixes and Tags ›

We have introduced a prefix modification, that allows threads in certain boards (namely the applications, events and in character boards) to be marked as ‘Open’, ‘Complete’, ‘WIP’ or ‘Event’.  Tags are also fully functional, and now appear listed at the bottom of threads.  These can be used to add trigger warnings as well as tag other members and/or their character(s).

‹ Canon Limit Increase ›

As a result of this poll, our canon character limit has increased from three to four.
