Hello everyone! Right to the point of this thread, I have yet to see an interest check or roleplay that fits a craving I have had, a shape-shifting roleplay. Thus I reach out to see if anyone would be interested, but what exactly would I mean by this beyond changing forms?

The main idea is a group of people capable of turning into ONE animal. An animal currently existing, or recently extinct (within the last 100 years). No mythical creatures or dinosaurs would be involved at this time, but in the future they may become available, but do not set your hopes upon it. I would want there to be a diverse amount of animals, meaning please don't all dive straight for the tigers and wolves, I know they're amazing but so are others!

Now the plot; what are they doing and why? What's the problems, what's the goals? This is meant to start as a slice of life, everyone has their own thing they are doing. A college student, a CEO, a babysitter, newlyweds, whatever you have the heart for! And this is assuming we even go a modern, present day route, which if the majority of interested feel otherwise, won't necessarily be the case; but regardless a sense of "everyday" life is how we start. Then something throws a wrench into everyone's plans, damn universe! This is also up for discussion as is our setting. Is it the government who has become aware of shifters over the years and now want to exploit their ability for power and gain? Is it an opposing clan, group, neighbor who seek to capture and pit them against each other for entertainment and more? Are they hated for being something beyond human and finally hunted like the mutants from X-Men? More than likely we'll have a combination of conflicts to stir up our characters from their relatively livable lives. The ultimate goal for anyone's character would be to survive and preferably live freely.

I tend to enjoy and appreciate gore and realism; and therefore I will caution such when you place your interest. You will be expected to know the animal your character can change into. A dog cannot lift 10 tons of weight, etc. If you aren't someone who wants to throw your character into a fight, that's fine, but there will be fighting and possibly torture (really depends on what all we decide). This does not mean go overboard, nor violate the rules. All face claims, ethnicities, sexualities, genders will be accepted. You're characters and NPCs are allowed to have problems with these, but if you yourself have issues, I don't know what to tell you other than please leave. Please don't be a dick to one another, that includes bigotry, again your character is allowed to have problems because I don't put a characters beliefs on the player, everyone is accepted here. I will also ask you to place trigger warnings where appropriate, and if someone else asks you to do so, please do it; reminder this may become a mature (18+) thread.

What other rules or expectations might I have that I don't care to bend on? I really enjoy character development. I want to know about your character and how they'll interact, no matter the range of negative or positive, with other characters and face their challenges. I'll expect basic and necessary information from your character. I will also expect you to write 1-2 paragraphs and have decent grammar. Frankly I don't like to put on a timely expectation, but I would enjoy it and think it best if the minimum of a post a week occurred from each player/character. I understand real life, and I think anyone would want someone to take care of themselves first. but please try to communicate with me. Move on's may occur if I have not had contact from you or the roleplay is held up, but I intend to catch you/anyone up and help work your characters back in if you come back and express interest again.

well, I think this a good place to start. Any questions, ask away? If you're interested, go on, tell me!

Hey there! This looks like a lot of fun and I would love to join but am overcrowded with things to do. I am curious, though: is this an Animorphs kind of thing where you turn into a carbon copy of said creature or is it more like the characters become similar but are still anthropomorphic?

That's ok! I'm not familiar with animorphs, but yes, you tur into a carbon copy of the animal. In some things you may be able to take on traits of the animal. Examples; if Tony's animal is an Ant, he might be able to lift ten times his weight while still in human form. You would not however grow animals parts of your animal except for maybe claws/nails, and eye changes.

Ooh, I like this. You get the traits of animals in some ways while also being able to shift. Ant and animals of burden like horses and mules would be incredibly burly, while hawks would be swift and strong-eyed and owls have exceptional hearing (at least, from what I think which can easily differ from your idea). I could see this going places.

I will be working on the lore/CS, but I have but one question for all those who still have interest! Would you prefer this be in modern/today's time setting or alternatively in a setting where there are no guns, the technology is more medieval, or at least not as developed as today's technology?

Medieval with me! I feel that would be simpler.

Hey I'm super interested in this! I'm also a lover for writing fighting and gore scenes. I think a period piece would be an interesting concept, especially if characters are used for fighting against each other and such.

Interested! And also I call dibs on being the bad guy :D

I think it'd be fun to play as a force of authority and oppression, but it'd be very difficult since I wouldn't have technology on my side (Seems to me everyone is interested in medieval so I'm content with that), so under this medieval setting I'd most likely be an enforcer of the empire, sent to detain or "take care" of these troublesome dangerous individuals, with much resources and manpower, cannon fodder if you will.

I'm not much for being special, but being human I do very well. You cool with that, catdog catdog ? :D

yes! There is something of a role that I think you would enjoy Sanonymous!
There will also be a colosseum part that I think will suit your interest Fern.

I am still working on the thread and lore; I have been working but should have a day off soon ~
I'll tag everyone when it's up

Awesome! Sorry I was a bit wrapped up so I could only react, not respond, but I'd be glad to take anything where I'd be able to interact with everyone :D I enjoy playing that role
