Swimmer Trials RP
« on: March 14, 2016, 09:11:27 pm »
So I've had this idea for a while, to put up a Swimmer Trials RP. For those of you who've read the story, the RP will follow the same basic plot structure. The Rite of passage The Swimmer Trials is coming and Ducky is chosen for a Trial no one has survived ect.

The characters are also the same as in the story except you can take any of Ducky's younger siblings as well. (Second Clutch Younglings) You can make up any of them but not the first clutch.

For those of you who haven't read The Swimmer Trials yet. The characters up for grabs are.

Sura (Ducky's mother)
Ruphus (Ducky's Father)
Merri (Ducky's Aunt)

Swimmer children first clutch:
Rapid (B)
Opal (G)
Sandy (G)
Echo (B)
Diver (G)
Spinner (B)
Ray (B)
Ducky (G)

The Gang if seven is also up for grabs as well as the Valley elders. As well as Ali and her mother.

Other Swimmers include :

Swayer (B, deceased)
Sculra (High Elder, Antagonist)

and for the later parts. NOTE: Don't take these characters in the early parts, they come in later)
Cyrest (Trial of Destiny survivor, father to Swayer)
Jane (Hatchling, Cyrest's niece)
Bluey (Ducky's Aunt)
Grandma Swimmer or Isira (Sura's mother and Ducky's Grandmother)
Trough (Ducky's boyfriend)  

I'll add more character as they become relevant. It is highly recommended that you read The Swimmer Trials, so you have an idea of where the RP is heading.


I will be taking Sura and Littlefoot. So anyone one interested in joining?

Nice of you to join us CT :)littlefoot  I hope we'll get a few more people to join in as well. Anyway, what characters are you interested in taking? Of course I have already taken Sura and I think it is already obvious as to who has taken Ducky :p The said person has also taken Ali as well.

You can count me in as well.  :)littlefoot I will need to think about which character I want, however, as I need to catch up on developments in the story.


Go ahead and check out my fanfictions, The Seven Hunters, Songs of the Hunters, and Mender's Tale.

I should read the story first but...are antagonists like a sharptooth allowed if it goes in that direction...like something happens that ends up having characters in peril? It would be a smaller role, but it would be fine for me since I'm not a big RPer.
Formally known as Hypnobrai until Nov 11, 2017.

I'm a big LBT fan and have seen all movies and TV series episodes. Waiting for a fifteenth film to be announced.
I love sharpteeth, especially the Horned Sharptooth, the Plated Sharptooth/Plates and the original Sharptooth.
I'm an admin on The Land Before Time Wiki, particularly the "Sharptooth admin" I suppose you could say.

There certainly will be Sharpteeth but they will not immerge until later. There is even a visit from The original Sharptooth (In a dream)

The other Sharpteeth are:

Dil
Icky
Sierra (Major role)
Red Claw
Screech
Thud
Brown Fast Biter and his brother (Major role)
Sharptooth
Ozzy
Strut

The main antagonist is a Swimmer though but she does have allies in the Sharptooth community.

Looks like you got Trough before I did.  :p  

So at the moment Ducky123 has Ducky and Ali, while CT has Cera and Trough and I have Sura, Littlefoot and Echo. Has anyone else decided what characters they want? There are still plenty up for grabs. I wonder who is going to take Sculra.

Also CT , Trough is a later character and you can have him but at the moment you might want to try playing another character set in the early stages of the story and the same applys for you Rhombus so you don't have to immediately worry about catching up with the story until we reach that particular scene.  

You can also make up your own OCs for Ducky's younger siblings if you want. Just make sure you put a bio up so we know what character you are playing.

YES, I WANT DUCKY, yep, yep, yep :p And Ali too. I'll probably take another member of the gang if there are still free characters (probably either Petrie or Spike or Ruby ^^)

I'd actually prefer if Ducky's siblings stay similar in character like in your story. Your choice though :)

I think rhombus could play Sculra pretty well. He's a master at writing evil characters (*cough* Calin)  ^^spike
hmm, a signature? I'll think of something.

Right that's all the player we'll probably get so far so to start the RP we need to have taken the early characters. Including.

All of The Gang, Swimmer children (First, 2nd is optional), Ruphus and Merri as well as the Longnecks. Swayer and Sculra also need to be taken.  

Once those characters are taken we can start the RP.

I will take Ducky's suggestion, and take Sculra if no one else wants her.  Though I will need to read through the story again to catch up on things.  Likewise, if no one else wants her, I would be willing to take Ruby.

Okay Rhombus, you can both Sculra and Ruby. (I had a feeling you'd want to take Ruby anyway) I think I might also take Swayer as well if no one objects. Though we still have a few characters to take before we begin.

Give me a few days to make up my mind :p Also, posting a list of who is already taken and who is still needed might be helpful? Take a look at my RPs if you're wondering how I did that :p (However I hope your RP will be slightly more active than mine  :sducky )

Here are the bios.

First Clutch younglings:

Ducky
Echo
Rapid
Opal
Ray
Spinner
Sandy
Diver

Age: all eleven years old at present

Echo
Gender: Male
Colour: Light Brown
Personality: Echo is the most mature of the boys in his family, he is generally looked up to by his younger siblings. He is loyal, clever and very compassionate. He is also the sibling that interacts the most with The Gang. He is friendly and helpful to everyone he meets and usually has a fair amount of self control except when it comes to his brother Rapid whom he is always bickering with. In terms of swimming he is almost Rapid's equal before training began but now is just as fast as his boastful sibling.


Ray
Gender: Male
Colour: Brown-ish, red-ish hue.
Distinguishing Features: Has a scar on the left leg
Personality: Ray is not nearly as strong as his clutch mates in most areas due to a scar on his left leg which he got when he flunked a dive and cut his leg on a rock. He is not as smart as Echo or Rapid but still enjoys there games. Ray also gets along very well with Spike because he is the least sociable of the lot. However Ray is still handsome, friendly and very gentle and does not believe in violence, he is also the child who can hold his breath the longest and will often lay on the ground beneath the water for a while this makes his deep diving and observing abilities very precise and also gives him a love for underwater green food. Ray also looks up to his brother Echo and detains the pranks of Rapid but has never had the courage to tell him to stop, he never was the bravest of the bunch.


Opal
Gender: Female
Colour: Identical to Ducky except her eyes are a different more darker shade of blue
Personality: Opal was named such because of her dark blue eyes, she is Ducky's identical twin and is very fond of her. They share very similar characteristics but Opal is emotionally stronger then Ducky nor does she have Ducky's swimming skills though she is very good at manoeuvring. Opal also does not share her sisters speech and is also the most sociable of all her siblings but she like her mother does not discriminate by class or species, she even has a friendship with one of the fish in the water ways near her nest. She is very playful and like Ducky is very selfless but Ducky's absence has caused a deep pain in her and has caused her to become less sociable, she has also become more prone to night terrors.


Rapid
Gender: Male
Colour: Dark Brown
Personality: Rapid is the biggest and strongest boy in the family, he has the shortest temper of any of his siblings and is also the family prank star which has gotten him into a fair amount of trouble with his parents, his father in particular. He can be very boisterous, overbearing and arrogant to his siblings and has a hobby of scaring his younger siblings and clutch mates. Rapid does not really associate much with The Gang mainly because he secretly likes Cera but has never voiced it before, he idolises her and tries to be like her in the most subtle way he can. He also is the least trustworthy of Chomper and hates sweet bubbles but loves the leaves of small scrub. He has a bit of a grudge against Echo for foiling some of his pranks and is highly competitive with him but still loves him as a brother nonetheless.

Spinner
Gender: Male
Colour: Green hue on his belly with a brown hue on he back, looks like his father
Personality: Spinner is closest in nature to his sister Sandy, they are both the most play full of their clutch mates and at times the most immature and even childish. Spinner is very gullible and excitable and will jump at almost any idea
his clutch mates will suggest. This makes him one of Rapid's key targets in pranks. He is emotionally very weak and hardly has any care in the world until hearing about the Swimmer Trials. He is also very, very inquisitive like a youngling of half his age. He also loves being cuddled by his mother and is constantly seeking her attention. Spinner also has a very keen interest in whirlpools and tries to understand everything about them ever since he fell into one when he was young. His father rescued him but he was still very interested in the whirlpool and has been trying to recreate one ever since by Swimming very fast in circles. Spinner also has a very good sense of direction and rarely ever gets lost, though he is not very adventurous and tries to avoid straying to far from any body of water.


Sandy
Gender: Female
Colour: Yellowish green
Personality: Is very similar to her brother Spinner however she is more of the voice of reason for him and her siblings and is very logical but still the playful innocent child. She was named Sandy because after she and her clutch mates hatched they all had to be bathed to get the yoke off their bodies and she fell onto the sandy shore and after discovering that she really liked the sand she began to play and roll around in it, causing the sand to stick to her yoke soaked body so that she was completely covered in sand. She still remains her love for playing in sand to this day. She is also one of the hardest to get to go to sleep since she is so play full. She is very loving and also has a tendency to draw the outline of the things she sees in the sand. She is also very responsible and protective of her younger clutch mates.


Diver
Gender: Female
Colour: Dark Green
Personality: Diver is very loving of all things and has just as much trust in Chomper as Ducky, she is always willing to give people a second chance and is the most adventurous of all the girls aside from Ducky, she also gets along well with Spike and has a strong bond with her parents and Aunt. She also has learnt a fair bit about herbs from her mother, how to stand up to Sharpteeth from her father which has made her very strong when it comes to a fight though she tries to avoid it whenever she can. She also loves listening to Merri's stories of The Mysterious Beyond. Diver certainly lives up to her name. She is the best diver in the family and can be a bit of a show off which certainly makes Rapid jealous. She is very close to Ducky and also loves listening to Ducky's adventures. She is very well disciplined and will generally be the first to put her hand up for any task or chore her parents might ask of her. She also has a close friendship with one of Petrie's brothers (Thermal) who also likes her.

Grandpa Longneck, Ruphus, Merri and Chomper also need to be taken since I have now taken Spike. There are still 8 characters left to be taken before we can begin the RP.
