So, in effort to maybe get things to pick back up again...I thought I would try out this RP exercise that I saw in one of my TSW cabals. I modified it a bit to keep in more simple. Basically, a question gets posted and you respond with information about your MXO character. For example, What is your character's favorite color? Green! Purple! Black, like my soul! ..... You get the idea. =) If you are feeling particularly creative...you can respond in character! But no pressure. This is very low commitment, no plot...just answer some questions when you feel like it. Also, feel free to post questions! Otherwise, you will be at my mercy!
Question 1: What is your character's favorite weapon? Why? How did they realize it?

Telemancer started out "bare knuckles", eschewing weapons in favor of Karate. As he moved up in rank and began to encounter stronger and more creative foes he found that relying solely on Karate was limiting his value to Skyscream and the rest of his crew on missions. Though worried about upsetting Skyscream (who was an ardent defender of the use of Martial Arts in the Matrix) He begun to study as a Hacker and soon found he had a natural ability to manipulate and change the code of the Matrix. He soon focused on becoming a Virologist and achieved some renown. He was often found using his Vector/Ravager and Howitzer/destroyer skills in battle to great success.
Very cool! I didn't realize that Telemancer started out as a MA person. Learned something new! =) Thanks for posting, Tele.
For Karaa, she started off as a dual submachine gun wielding badass = p. But, there was a few times when guns just didn't cut it. They jammed or ran out of ammo and then she was up a creek. So she started to learn MA. And as her mind became more methodical (because she started to fully realize the machine experiments that were done on her), she relied more on strategy and tactics, MA became a bigger part of that. Though, as you see in the RPs, she still uses guns, its just not her primary. Basically, she uses whatever gives her an edge in combat and easily accessible.
EichDee was a weapons specialists. Using dual silencer pistols. I don't know the exact story behind it, but I believe it was because of her training in the FBI as a blue pill.
Alright, maybe weapons aren't your thing. Its ok, no one can be as crazy as Karaa and Tele. Probably a good thing. lol. So here is another question, if you would like feel free to respond to any questions that get posted in this thread, regardless of whether they are recent or not.
What does your character like to do in their free time? Read? Party? Soul-search? Let us know!
Telemancer posts poetry on BBSs...he is amazed that the rest of the world is seemingly so illiterate, awakened worst of all. He immerses himself in literature and from time to time worries that the experience of reading seems SO similar to jacking into the matrix; it takes him to a virtual world that he often likes more than reality. This realization perhaps keeps him from constantly wanting to take the road Cypher tried to take...
Very cool, Tele. I think that adds another layer to your character! I like it!
I asked the question without really an answer for Karaa lol. The Karaa from ATS, i think would tinker with projects that EichDee left behind unfinished or maybe trained/workout to improve her skills. And, do side missions or something. For the Karaa before ITA, probably hanging out with her fellow operatives, getting a drink, dancing and generally having a good time.
Ok, I'll just keep going with these questions. If anyone has any ideas for threads they want to start, feel free to have at it.
Next question, favorite article of clothing or accessory? Why? Is it lucky? Super comfy? Hella stylish? Let me know!
Weapon: Skyscream preferred Aikido mixed with a bit of kung fu mixed in but had no problem with using a submachine gun on occasion to clear out mass amounts of weak enemies when required. During Sky's time as an active operative she was often considered one of the top MA users in the Matrix with an unique style.
Freetime: In the Real Skyscream liked to hang out on the docks and just watch the flow of people while she thought. She also loved to work on her ship. In the Matrix her 'downtime' hobby was watching cartoons.
Favourite article of clothing: My red sparkly 'trenchcoat' thing. Can't remember the name of it. The stats weren't very good but man, did I ever stand out in a crowd. heh.
"I'm the operator. She's the Redpill. How hard is that to understand?"
Phevr started out doing Kung Fu but after realizing how cool dual weapons was, he decided to give that a try. While not the best shot out there, he does hit the mark with most large, stationary targets.
Most of Phevr's bluepill time was spent in his room on his computer or working at an office in Tabor Park. He was initially a very solitary creature, wishing for companionship but never feeling it was something he deserved. It wasn't until he was awakened that everything changed. He realized that his whole miserable life was a lie and that something far greater existed and that he had a new chance at life. He altered his selfish goals to be more humanitarian and dedicated his life to help find a balance between the Machines and Zion.
Redpill phevr enjoyed viewing the sunset from the roofs of tall buildings as well as visiting places with cool sounding names like Club Succubus. Just because you could then say, I was at this really cool sounding place last night and people would be in awe.
Favorite article of clothing would have to be a black fedora.
Awesome! Loving learning more about everyone's character's. Haha, Sky, I remember that coat. And Phevr, Black fedora. Very classy. I approve. =)
Karaa has an old shirt of Danny's that she couldn't bring herself to part with. She had it before the events of ITA. And, she also had a pair of white gloves in the matrix that she was quite crazy about. =)
Ok. Another question. If your character had a theme song, what would it be? Feel free to link videos!
I am not sure what theme song Karaa's would be. I think if i had to pick, I would say Comes and Goes by Greg Laswell.
And because I couldn't help it, I also did a song for Danny and Caius.
Danny - Blinding by Florence and the Machine
Caius - Leave out all the rest by Linkin Park
Ok, next question. You know, I thought of a good question last night and now that i am sitting down to write it...can't remember. /sigh. But, onward and upward! What are some of the defining moments for your character? What events shaped who they are and how the interact with people, approach situations, etc.
Sephiroth X: I'm shocked this forum is still up and running. I got super nostalgic for MxO and somehow found my way back. I miss you guys.

Rycus: Merry Christmas everyone. I haven't read any books and lately only game I've played is Ark. Pretty sad when I'm not even up to playing Magic which I've played for 25 years. And this place isn't ever going anywhere.
