Post subject:  Pet Friendly-Old OOC

(Note: This is Brittles' original OOC. As time went on, the players decided we needed a new one...that new one is Here. This OOC is kept for archives sake. Feel free to browse through it if you wish.)

Ok then! It seems my first little game idea here was a little too serious... soo lets try something more silly, more on topic, and more newbie friendly shall we?

Basic Premise
"Pet friendly" is a role play that follows the theme of the comic:A silly tale of domestic pets getting into trouble in the suburbia of the northern united states. Newbie friendly the point of this game is.. well.. to have fun! There are no major restrictions, and anyone can join at anytime taking the role of a pet in this little bit of chaos. If you become busy, and can't play.. that's fine too! You're free to join again at anytime. There is no set story teller either...everyone is free to change the world around them as they see fit, the only thing you can't control are the other players characters. I'd like to note PF takes place in a different neighborhood then HP, populated by forum users characters... not the cast of Ricks comics.

There is no 'sign up' for this game. Simply come up with a pet in your head, and go post in one of the in-character threads that has room! It's that simple! There ARE some character creation rules bellow that put some limits on what everyone can, or can not be, so I suggest reading them. There's no need to actually MAKE a sheet though, but posting it in this thread will give the other players a better idea of who your pet is ehn? You're allowed to have multiple characters if you wish... though I would recommend most people focus on one or two. Minor NPCs created simply for the current story, or your characters background, do not need to be included.

-Character rules-

Name:Anything within reason. Keep in mind pets tend to take the last name of their human owners.

Species:Most people, keeping in with the theme of the game, should be a Dog or a cat, breed included if you so wish. As this is a light hearted game though...ANY animal that can be domesticated legally is allowed within reason. Certain creatures will suffer from limitations though (see Special rule #1).

Age:Will be put in Dog years. 1 year=7 years. Most pets should stick to being somewhere between 10 to 35 years old.

Gang:Ok, so, "HP!" has this big old club full of dogs right? Well our game has things like that too! Two of them in fact:Marty's gang (The Cats), and Dany's Gang (the Dogs). The two share a friendly rivalry (Sometimes not so friendly) and any player is free to be part of either group. Feel free to skip this part all together if you want. You can make up your own gangs, but keep in mind they will most certainly be SMALL. No more then ten or so pets, and more likely only four or five.

How you appear, and any bits of clothing you're often seen wearing. For most pets this is just a collar though. One to three lines should be enough for most.. but no more then two paragraphs

Also simple enough. Keep the setting in mind! Gritty dark avengers generally won't work... unless they're a parody there of. Keep it at the same length as appearance

-Other Notes-
Any other minor details you want to add about your character. Character Backgrounds are NOT required but if you want to bring up a few important details this is the place to put them.

Nerd time! S.P.E.C.I.A.L is a simple system I'd like people to use to define their characters abilities:How strong they are, how fast they are etc. Don't panic, it's very simple, the numbers are only here as 'guidelines' of sorts, we will never actually use REAL rules. All you need to do is take 42 points, and spread them between the seven attributes bellow. You must put at least 2 points in each one, and the most you can put in one is 10, with 5 being 'average'. You need not spend all 42 points if you don't want to.

Strength-Easy to explain. Your pure muscle power. How much you can lift, and how much force you can put out

Perception- Your awareness of your surroundings. Your ability to sense what's going on around you, along with what's going on in the minds of others.

Endurance-Your physical health. Your resistance, and stamina.

Charisma-Your characters ability to influence others. To get them to agree with you, and listen to what you say.

Intelligence-Your 'book' smarts. Your technical knowledge, and problem solving skills.

Agility-How fast you are. You dexterity, and coordination.

Luck-Self explanatory:how lucky your character is! Trust me this is more useful then it sounds, and might even save your life. Can represent just plain luck, insight, resourcefulness.. or anything else that leaves your character in the right place, at the right time.

Extra rules

Special rule #1:Small animals (such as rodents) cut their strength, and endurance scores in half after spreading their points out(Rounding down). Animals that have natural abilities that put them at an obvious advantage (such as a Birds Flight, or a wild cats claws) only get 36 points to spend rather then 42.

Special rule:#2:I'M THE WEATHER WIZARD!

Ok then! here's the situation! you're bored to death with modern day pets who have no magic powers or super skills or anything! What do you do? You have your pet pull out the mighty Axe:Exlaibor (a broomstick) and lunge at the vile evil sorcerer Jeffery (the neighbors cat) to free the fair damsel Dia (The toy said cat is holding).

Confused? I'd hope so! Basically if you ever feel the need for a different kind of story simply have your pets (childish creatures that they are) to imagine they're something more! Changing the mundane world around them into something fantastic. Yes, that's right:we're going to be pretending to be pets, pretending to be knights, pretending to be heroes. Cool huh?

Naturally the above shouldn't be the norm:Most of the game should focus on the shenanigans they get into in the modern world.... but a little break never hurt anyone! Whenever you make an imaginary post put all of your text in italics, so people know it isn't really happening.

Special rule #3:What's the hold up?

Ok with people jumping in, and out of a game... there will be times that you'll be waiting weeks, or even MONTHS for someone to respond! This would be BAD. So here's what we're going to do:If you're waiting for more then three days for a person to respond feel free to take minor control of their character to keep the story going... keeping in with what the character would do of course.

Example characters
So then. Here are my two characters for this little game. They'll also act as examples so everyone knows what I'm looking for.

Name:Dee-Cafe Snow ("Dee")

Species:Dog (Heinz 57')


Gang:Defenders of Suburbia (Role playing group that gets together on Wednesdays.)

Looking at Dee the first thing that you're aware of is how content she looks. Her Blue eyes almost always half closed, a simple little smile always across her lips. The Dog almost always looks like she's on verge of falling asleep, and this may very well be the case.

The dog sports a slightly long snout, and droopy ears. Her fur color is a mix of things; blotches of Black, brown, and orangish-Brown going down her back, shifting to a pure fluffy white on her underbelly, including the 'underside' of her arms, legs, tail etc. She wears a grey-blue collar with a miniature 'eight ball' hanging from it.

Dee is a 'serene observer' type. Despite her lazy appearance she's very much aware of everything going around her, and has great insight into human behavior, and the patterns of the world. So much so that she might even know more then you know about yourself if you spend enough time with her. She could also be called a 'childish philosopher' often thinking about random ideas, and concept in her head. From time to time she may blurt out a long rant on what she's currently thinking about, and is more then happy to talk more lively with someone who has interest in the subject. Most of the time though.. Dee simply tags along, helping others where she can, never speaking more then one or two words at a time.

Other Notes:
-The Eight Ball on Dees Collar actually works!
-Dees high luck is not so much Luck as it is insight. Knowing where to stand, what to bring, and what to do in most situations.
-Runs a small blog that talks about various philosophical ideas, and things going around in the neighborhood.
-Lives with Espresso Snow, and views him as a brother.
-The two of them live at the coffee cafe called "The Wall" which sits within the neighborhood, a default hang out spot for many of the older human inhabitants.


Name:Espresso 'Express' Snow.



Gang:THE PRESS (Espresso acts as a 'reporter', often being allowed places he shouldn't be by just waving a card he made around)

Exaggeration seems to be the motto of the day. BIG eyebows, BIG eyes, BIG ears, and a tail long enough that some say it's impossible to ever see the entire thing at once. The black cats expression is almost one extreme emotion or another, and his tails twitching never seems to stop. His whiskers are quite long, straight, and white allowing the cat to slide his paws across them while thinking about his sinister plots. He wears a dark blue collar, from which a miniature camera hangs.

Ex's personality seems to vary from day to day, but his key trait is his need to scheme. He always must be plotting a way for himself to get 'something'. Power? Woman? Fame? Money? It doesn't mater which. As long as it improves his life it's good. He has two main masks for himself. The reporter:Always looking for that one 'big story' which will make him famous. Or the master-mind:Some silly Saturday morning cartoon show villain who has the perfect plan to defeat his enemies, and rule the world (or well city block). Lucky he tends to lack the patience needed for his plans to actually work, running into them without thinking.

Other Notes:
-Deep down? Espresso Express isn't really a bad guy. If one of his evil schemes actually succeeded he'd feel really bad! Most of it is really just a childish game to him.
-The Camera on his collar is more then just a decoration! It actually works!
-Espresso lives with 'Dee' the dog. Typically he'll either treat her as his arch rival, or lacky depending on his mood. Deep down he thinks of her as one would a sibling, which is quite common among pets who live in the same house.
-Has an online 'News' site, that reports things going on around the Neighborhood. Having more in common with tabloids then real news papers it's well known among the pets, and is particularly popular with Dany's gang.

Post subject:  Re: Pet Friendly-OOC-Always Recruiting!

Woo hoo! This seems like a fun RP to do.

Since I'm (extremely) lazy, I'll just transfer my original character from the first RP to this one with maybe a few edits here and there.

Name: Jumplion
Gender: Male
Appearance: Scruffy brown fur with 3 "lucky spots" on both of his sides and stomache. Wears an orange collar with a little engraved fang with the words "Keep on truckin'!" for some reason. Floppy ears.
Personality: While he is lazy at times, if he wants to do something he'll do it. At any time he can he puts in a snide remark or a sarcastic retort and sometimes even saying "That's what she said!" if only to put the spirits of his friends up. While he may be imature sometimes, he will do anything to keep his friends happy even if he has to get off the sofa. Because of this he is very knowledgable about his friends and know when they're unhappy. Sortof a 6th sense if you will.
Species: For irony's sake, I'm a dog.
Gang: Jumplion is part of Dany's Dogs and is usually one of the more vocal pets of the group. He even threated to seceed from the Union if they didn't upgrade the toilet water treatment that the dogs diserve. How that would be possible, who knows, but his dog-darnit, his dogs will get the treatment they diserve!
Other Notes:
-Jumplion's name actually originates from an anciet indian tribe that has since sold it's many lands for casinos. Infact, the owner of one of the richest casinos in the world is named Jumplion!
-His secret passion is animating, and whenever he gets the chance he jumps on the computer and starts animating. Usually, though, he scraps the whole thing.
-Jumplion is afraid of stairs...odd

Strength: 4 (lazy)
Perception: 7 (knowledgeable with his friends, knows what’s upsetting them and how to cheer them up, ect…)
Endurance: 5
Confidence: 5
Intelligence: 8
Agility: 3 (lazy)
Luck: 10 (lucky spots)

When I introduce Jumpy's girlfriend (Jessica?) I'll put up her character sheet.

Post subject:  Re: Pet Friendly-OOC-Always Recruiting!

Just a quick note:I've changed 'confidence' back into 'charisma' for this game. In a horror games one sanity is extremely important... while talking skills was less so. Now the reverse is true, so this might require some changing for your SPECIAL stats.

Keep the following in mind though:Charisma is not appearance. Charisma is not how 'nice' you are. It's how good you are at influencing others, to get them to do what YOU want to do. A Low Cha character could simply be shy... or simply unassertive: letting people 'do as they please'. Maybe just overly childish, or eccentric so people don't take them seriously? Naturally it isn't the end all social stat though, things like int, and per take part... but yeah, you get the idea.

Post subject:  Re: Pet Friendly-OOC-Always Recruiting!

Well, I suppose it's about time I got in on this.

Name: Zeppelin

Species: Dog

Age: I suppose this is human equivalent so... 29

Gang: None

Average brown mutt, basically. Medium length, well kept fur with pointed ears and an oddly bushy tail that he's secretly quite proud of. Dark brown with white front paws (hands?), chest, and tail tip.

Prefers wearing a pair of leather goggles his dad made him around his neck instead of a collar.

Likes to think of himself as a loner, but also enjoys being in small groups. Large groups of people just tend to frustrate him. Prefers to stay quiet and make occasional quips about whatever the situation is, though he's also good at improv humor. He flourishes in front of a crowd- if you can get him in front of one, that is- and will defend his beliefs fervently. However, since he really doesn't like speaking, this has rarely occurred.

Believes in chivalry, honor, and self-reliance. His only real fear is saying something stupid.

Other Notes:
-Very steampunk, hence the goggles.
-Loves black and white movies, especially anything with Jimmy Stewart, and reading, especially romances (though he'll never tell you that.)
-His best friend is Sarah, his family's 14 year old daughter. She was the one who picked him out at the pound three years ago, when he was only one-and-a-half/ sixteen.
-Also likes to hang out with Kayla, another neighborhood dog. Might make a character sheet for her later.

CHA-8 (When he decides to use it)

I'll wait until Brittles posts. We wouldn't want him too far behind the adventure, would we?

Post subject:  Re: Pet Friendly-OOC-Always Recruiting!

Still waiting for me to do everything for you huh?! Hmph the nerve of some players!

Hahaha, but really I WAS waiting to see where you two were going with that. I was waiting for the right moment for our sneaky reporter to move in to get his picture! You did say the cat-girl friend would be around eventually but I figured something equally embarrassing would happen thanks to the twins. But right:I'm in a campagin right this minute, so once we're done for the night I'll come here, and post for reals! This is getting a we bit.. dull I'd admit. Story isn't going anywhere! hmm I think I'll pull a weather wizard if that's alright.

Author:  Jumplion [ Sun Feb 15, 2009 11:12 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Pet Friendly-OOC-Always Recruiting!

Ohhh! Could you make a potential storm loom over the horizon? That would be perfect for me to introduce the catgirl person whatever her name will be!

Fun Fact: whenever I plan a story of some sort, I always think ahead of the story and work backwards. So basically I think of the ending, and think up what leads to that. It's a weird way to make up stories to be sure.

Author:  Brittles [ Sun Feb 15, 2009 11:41 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Pet Friendly-OOC-Always Recruiting!

Well.. actually I was referring to special rule #2 not an actual 'weather' change. Though making it stormy is certainly possible... though so suddenly? Haha we'll see give me a bit.

As for the fun facts... a lot of people write stories like that heh. Its the in-between stuff that's hard! :lol:

Post subject:  Re: Pet Friendly-OOC-Always Recruiting!

How's that? Super long post to make up the fact I've only had very few thus far! Now lets see if we can get this story moving huh?

Author:  no space [ Mon Feb 16, 2009 10:52 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Pet Friendly-OOC-Always Recruiting!

Alright Jump, it's all you. Though I suspect that, despite the arguing and the twins, if it's pouring down rain Zeppelin will be a bit hesitant to go outside. The rain could ruin those awesome leather goggles rather quickly. Besides, he wouldn't want to show up muddy: he'd never hear the end of it.

Everything alright here? There hasn't been a post for a while, so is anyone caught up in school work or something?

I'l special rule #3 a bit if needed, it's no big deal.

Sick, in my case. Brains mush the past few day when I haven't been sleeping... enough to check around, keep track of things but uh... don't expect much posting from me until Saturday or Sunday haha.

Wow, sorry, been completely out of it. I actually spent the past couple days thinking that I did post a new thing. I can guarantee that I'm not going to get much accomplished when I post though. I suppose Zep will just be heading back home.

Author:  Jumplion [ Sat Feb 21, 2009 6:29 pm ]

That's fine, I'll wait till Brittles posts so he won't be too far behind. No man left behind, that's my motto! :D

You would actually have 28 left to spend, but yes. Just put them wherever you want- if you wanna be big and dumb as a man can come but stronger than a country hoss, put them all in strength and endurance. If you wanna be a pool shootin' boy named Willy McCoy, put them in intelligence and agility. If you've ever played Fallout, Elder Scrolls, or pretty much any RPG, it's just the same as that.

Post subject:  Re: Pet Friendly-OOC-Always Recruiting!

Ah a new player haha. A nice surprise. Yes the in-character IS still going on HERE. Keep in mind this IS a forum RP. There will be slow weeks, plenty of them: as people get sick, and busy among other things. Welcome to the game regardless. If you're looking for a place to join.. I'd say giving Dee, and Zep a wave would be your best choice (give me a chance to post though), I get the feeling Jumplion has a 'story time' of his own planned in the back yard hahaha.

I will say your characters fine, I did notice his SPECIAL stats seem rather low (adding up to around 25, when everyone else has... 42) but there are no rules saying that you HAVE to spend all 42.. so I'll just assume that's the case here. No complaints on the race:they're practically just dogs who look kinda like foxes at this point. I honestly assumed someone would eventually show up with a domesticated fox or raccoon.. so yeah~.

Heh, don't know if you know there Jazz but uh... every post you make has an 'edit' button on its upper right corner. If you need to make changes to a post you can simply press that rather then reposting the entire thing over again with the errors fixed.

Post subject:  Re: Pet Friendly-OOC-Always Recruiting!

Yes I've read it. Quite a good system, as is the comic series itself haha. I'd say the comic doesn't waste too much time talking to itself... while the system puts ten pounds of fluff in our ears before it gets into real rules hahaha. Regardless a very 'role' focused game I'll say that much, giving you rewards based on how well you portray your character, and help out the story. Never actually ran a game with it though, not sure how smoothly it'd go... but ehn.

Post subject:  Re: Pet Friendly-OOC-Always Recruiting!

EDIT: As my character developed more, so did his story, prompting a rev-vamp of his character sheet. I added various things that really flesh out personality and backstory.

Name: Venison
Original Name: ? (currently unknown)
Other Names: Buck, Vince
Species: Dog
Age: 17 (about 7 human years, based on what we now know about pet lifespans; I think others should adjust their ages as well)
Gang: None yet...

Nutshell Description: Stray honorable thief dog with a troubled past and trust problems.
Personal Quote: "No, I am not a feral. Nor am I a pet. I am a stray and I'm just trying to survive."

His fur is colored a simple gray, but he has somewhat of a mane/ridge...Starting just above his eyes, he has ragged, dark brown (?) fur that sticks up slightly and runs down the center of his back. His tail is still gray, however, and his belly sports a lighter gray. He's got emerald green eyes, which are usually half-open and sleepy looking. His muzzle is a standard length. He's got pointy, erect ears. Finally, he's slightly shorter than most pets. It's hard to say what breed Venison is, due to his odd coloring.

However, as time passed, the gray coloring left his fur...turning, instead, to a dusty brown color. However, his tail and lower legs remain gray.

What's interesting is his clothing. He wears army cargo pants, dirty, worn and mud-stained. They hold most of his supplies and belongings. Also he has no collar, but rather a necklace like leather strap, with a carbon-steel lockpick hanging from the end.

A very analytical stray dog with a troubled past, he’s got one simple goal: Survival.
Fiercely independent despite being so weak, he accepted help from little, being shy and horrible socially otherwise. He's extremely blunt, and views almost everything in an analytical fashion. However, what let him survive regardless was his human-like intelligence, and inhuman reactions and dexterity. His good perception and luck contributed to his survival and freedom as well.

Being too smart for his own good caused constant friction between him and his family, and then after particularly nasty incident involving his human parents work, Venison decided it was time to get out of dodge before something even worse happened to him. He walked away from a tarnished golden cage with a rather cynical outlook on life and the human’s control on the world, but was able to keep his sanity intact by rationalizing every action as "survival"…whether he was breaking and entering to steal food, stunning a rent-a-cop with his invented, expertly made "Balishock," and occasionally breaking a bone. But fair as fair; he also rationalized his heroic actions, such as stopping muggings, saving other pets, and "repossessions" as "survival" as well.

As a couple years pasted by, his cynicism and anger were replaced by feeling run down. Worn out from dealing with street-wise city people, (and being occasionally shot at) he decided to begin picking on small towns and suburbs. However, this latest suburb, Richardson Valley, threw him a curveball…in the form of friendly pets and humans. He’s temporarily residing with Sara and Rav Ligerr as he recuperates and figures out what to do next.

Other Notes
-Venison makes frequent use of the lockpick hung around his neck, usually when digging around for survival supplies.
-His cargo pants hold a multitude of supplies, from duct tape, to food, to oil for maintaining his lockpick.
-He's got horrible eyesight! What he wouldn't give for some glasses...
-With such high intelligence, Venison has access to knowledge that astounds pets and humans. He seems to have extensive knowledge on a variety of subjects and trades, such as locksmithing.
-His agility is what kept him alive the most: People can't touch him. His dexterity is extremely stable as well.
-Venison has a non-lethal, homemade, electroshock weapon: The Balishock. It's basically a Balisong (a.k.a. Butterfly knife), but instead of a blade, there are tazer probes set in place. It's got two settings: A small shock setting for fighting people off, and a strong shock setting made to temporarily knock people out. However, Venison only uses the weapon in cases when he would otherwise be down and out; worse case scenarios like when he gets captured, incapacitated, or gets shot at. But in a place like Richardson Valley, the weapon is a hindrance since he has no use for it!
-Being a particularly smart stray with a weapon had the police on his tail, but the police gave up hunting him long ago when they became frustrated and decided they had bigger fish to fry. Not to say that they would be very happy if they did find him.
-Being fiercely independent, it's hard to persuade him, unless it's in his interests.

I think I'll join in, hope you don't mind if I use two characters
Family Name:Burke






Appearance:Slightly taller than most pets, Cier has medium length, gray-black fur except for his ears and muzzle, which are a much lighter shade. Cier has blue eyes. Wears a blue collar with a celtic cross hanging from it

Personality:Amiable and very patient, he prefers to observe, only speaking up about things after he has given it some thought. Enjoys helping his owner with his hobby, which is fixing up old broken-down cars

Other Notes: Both him and Endellion are often home alone, as their owners job has him travelling alot
has slightly impaired hearing in his right ear(see below)

Strength:8 (usually helps his 'dad' push old cars into their garage)

Name: Endellion 'Del'



Age: 32 (mouse years)


Appearance: Del is pretty typical of a common mouse except for the large dark gray spot on her back. Del is usually wearing a tiny labcoat, in which she keeps the megaphone she uses so that others can hear her easily.

Personality: Del is almost the definition of mad scientist, she is highly intelligent and is more often than not thinking up some new invention (none of which ever work, or they explode when she turns them on), she enjoys reading; mostly scientific texts (imagine a mouse reading a physics book thas twice her size)

Other notes:Del enjoys riding on Ciers head and that is where she is most often found when they are outside
She has a habit of yelling into Cier ear (mostly the right one) with her megaphone when she thinks he's not listening to her


Hope that's good
(EDIT: Added luck stat)

If we ever get any posts, yes. We need a new story arc, any ideas?

Aren't we in the middle of a story arc right now? I'm waiting for the area around the doghouse to vacate before my character moves (and I think that Jump would as well...just a hunch). Trust me, something is going to happen, and I will have my character make sure of this. Also, the fate of Venison's binocs are in your guys' hands, FYI. Oh, and you guys should have your chars be ready to think on their feet... another hunch. :D

Post subject:  Re: Pet Friendly-OOC-Always Recruiting!

alright guys, I'll finish up what's going to happen and make a character sheet for....well, whatever her name is going to be. Just be patient for now, I'm still working on my *coughcough* own webcomic. [/shameless advertising]

That, and I'm lazy, so I'll post the rest of it sometime today.

Hang tight for the explosive finale!
