Full Description

BESM: Nexus Prime
Earth is always a focal point in all things, Finally, one man figured out why this is, and as such, attained the power of God, taking on the moniker, GameMaster.  What he has done since is simple.   Gathering together a group of teenagers from various walks of life, each with a unique quality of their own, he has Given each of them a portion of Nexus Energy, empowering them to travel to other worlds, Setting to right things that are wrong.
That's where all of you, the Players come in.  Each of you was a normal teenager, between 17 and 19, and now you have each been given extraordinary traits.   For example, you might now have a personal mecha (something no larger than 50 feet) and the knowledge to service and pilot it as an Ace, you might possess a magical weapon, or even cybernetic enhancement.  You could maste the elements, or know true magic.   The possibilities of the Nexus, and since its power flows through each of you, you the players, are endless.

Yeah it's a short premise write up.  This game is meant to be fun, and set like an anime, expect it to run like one.  We could end up in most any type of setting  Though I will say now, the first story Arc will be a mecha-centric setting.  Each Arc is going to be called a Level, and once you clear the challenges of the Level, some you may know beforehand, and some you may discover in the Level, you'll be returned to Earth to meet with GameMaster, and receive a boon.   Death is permanent in the Levels, so if you die you die, excepting a level where a means to revive someone actually exists.  Players should still look human, regardless of what form their extraordinary qualities take on.

Max total attack and Defense value to begin is 10 (factoring in all non-circumstantial bonuses)
If I feel a power is broken, I reserve the right to ask you to change it, or remove it as needed.  I will refund points if we discover it later in game.

--Decree of Fate--  I may have a character Fail a particular roll, or for some reason a power misfires at an inopportune moment, If I do this, please don't argue, I'll have story related reasons.  Each time I have it happen, whoever it happens to will receive a bonus cp award from 1-3 points depending on the severity of this Decree of Fate.

Tough and energy bonus give you 10 hp and10 ep respectively, and each rank costs 2 cp, you may only have up to 10 ranks of each at game start.

Regeneration can be used for EP or HP, but must be decided at Character creation, You may have both kinds.

This last rule is an important one, The game is supposed to be fun for everyone, don't be a dick.  if you've got a problem come to me, I'm a pretty accomodating GM.  We're all adults, and I'm being as upfront about what the game's gonna be like as I can.  If you need help, ask, I'll do what I can.  

  1. What's new in this game
  2. Ryougi Yuuki

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Ryan wasn't alone for long, Yuuki turning her focus from the bullet-riddled corpse of the bone-plated monster to the smaller beasts swarming her teammate. For a third time, she called out the words that caused her weapon to surge with living magic even as she snapped it at a outlier of the pack, sinuously homing for the gibbering horror. With Vesper doing as well as she was, Kami willing, they should be able to finish these lesser spawn easily...
  3. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Entangled once again, the rhino type was held fast, long enough for a seemingly endless hail of autocannon rounds to shred its unprotected rear. Ryan moved forward, wading into the smaller hatchling creatures, which proved no match for him, as he took down 3 in a few swings of his sword. Vesper and therion's assault on the queen was starting to harm her, and vesper felt little resistance to her psychic assault, though the normal draining effects didn't seem to fire. In response the remaining hatchlings went after Ryan, as the queen tried to swat down therion to no avail, though her tail had lashed out and only narrowly missed crushing Vesper flat, leaving a massive imprint in the rock where it had struck.
  4. Vesper

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    "Keep on the queen!" Vesper called to the Therion, as the spectre wrested the spike out of itself and flew up to avoid the smaller creatures. From above it twirled the scythe, slashing twice across the queen's thick hide. Meanwhile, Vesper glared across the cavern at it, trying to flay its mind with her will!
  5. Tori Cannon

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Tori darted forward the Mechas feet slamming the ground shaking her surroundings as she closed the distance on what looked like a frontal charge she suddenly hit her jets and launched herself into the air twisting and flipping she fired her jets again to soften her landing behind the monster. Tori gritted her teeth and lined up her shot on the beasts butt and triggered her cannons.
  6. Ryougi Yuuki

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Ryan was clear. Good. Now she just had to keep this thing focused on her while Tori got the pleasure of looking at it's ass. The glimpses of it's mouth behind the shield was gross enough, reminding the shrine maiden of worms and bark beetles that had brought down one of the big old trees near the school, hardwood splintering into choking dust between her hands. Her gaze hardened, molten gold fury at the thought of these things doing the same to sacred Mount Fuji. "Rooting! Strike!," She called, snapping her whip straight up and back down at the monster, weapon blooming into a second entangling mass in the moments before potential impact with the brute, her posture tall and confident in challenge. Maybe this was what it felt like to actually want to do what you needed to do?
  7. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Yuuki's attack served to momentarily restrain the massive Armored rhino like creature, even as the the almost incessant hail of shells from Tori struck the armored prow. While they did manage to blast small chunks from the armor with nearly a dozen strikes, Everyone could tell that it really wasn't hurting the entangled behemoth, mostly just pissing it off as it burst free of the vines rooting it, turning again to Yuuki now and preparing to charge. Therion's attacks hit home, but the queen was far from unprotected, her armor taking much of the strength of the spirit's blows, and illiciting a change, The Queen began to sprout dozens of razor sharp quills, and in an instant sent them flying. Due to the Angle, only therion and Tori were targets, the blast of quills pitting the armor of the mech, but mostly bouncing off. One did impale therion, rendering him visible, and doing considerable damage. Ryan, awake now, called back his sword, Just in time to hack down two of the juveniles who'd closed in on Vesper while her attention was on him. The other dozen or so were closing in too, soon they'd have a real fight and be overwhelmed. He called out loudly "Shoot it in the Ass it doesn't have armor there!" A quick look showed the truth of his words, while the front of the creature's head was like the armored prow of a battleship honed to a knife edge, the rear of the animal was simple flesh, with odd lumps of hair sticking out. Meanwhile the queen was following therion, made visible by the impaled quill, and moving to swat him down with a massive hand.
  8. Vesper

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Vesper reached out, her eyes narrowing in concentration. "Keep on the queen!" she shouted, and the Therion's dread presence did indeed stay near the 'leader' of the alien hive. Meanwhile, Ryan found himself slowly starting to lift off the ground. It felt as if gravity was easing away, letting him float dreamily upward. Then he was falling...falling backwards though, away from the battle towards where the girls were struggling to fight off the monsters. Abruptly, yet with very little sense of movement, he came to a halt in midair near Vesper and lowered gently to the ground again. "Be more careful," she said tersely. (Using TK to pull Ryan out of immediate danger; Therion's Attacks)
  9. Tori Cannon

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Tori watched in horror as Ryan was nearly splatted like a bug on a windshield she was relieved when he moved at least showing that he was alive. "Yuuki! See if you can get to Ryan!" She shouted her voice amplified and broadcast by the towering Mecha. Twisting back to face the entangle monster she cut loose with her autoguns, stitching the beast with round after round!
  10. Ryougi Yuuki

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Golden eyes going wide with the sound of fleshy impact, Yuuki didn't think twice about darting out of ring of spectral foliage protecting her and the others. Her whip uncoiled from her side, sprouting the beginning of new leaves and vine along it's entire length even as she came to a halt between the bone-helmed horror and Ryan. He knew how this all worked, and if he died when she could have done something, was tough enough to distract the monsters from him long enough for the mission to succeed... No. "Rooting Strike!" she called, lashing out with her weapon. It shifted as it hurled at it's target, forking and sprouting into a living net that hungered to anchor this horror in place for another blow to destroy.
  11. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    The twin blasts from the mecha's canon did serious damage to the trio of warriors, With the mental blast from Vesper Finishing off the first of the trio, even from behind the shield Yuuki had erected. Therion moved in on the queen, and the scythe sliced deeply into the massive monster's right arm, getting a eardrum splitting scream from the beast, as it whirled around trying to find its tormentor. Yuuki found no plantlife within the chamber, from the looks of it, these creatures fed mostly on meat, of all kinds. Ryan moved with impressive speed, Cutting through damaged flesh to cut the heart out of first one Warrior, then The other. With the trip gone, he was turning to head to the queen when an even larger bug burst from the ground, looking like an armored tank, and charging him. The Impact would have exploded most any other living thing, but Ryan was sheathed in a blue energy, as well as the forcefield, which was battered down by the impact, and he was knocked int the wall of Nest area, Into a not that small crater. The first sign he wasn't okay was the amount of blood he coughed up after the hit, and the way his sword disappeared, even as he sagged in the crater.
  12. Vesper

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Vesper brought her hands up, crossed at the wrist, and the hive around her trembled slightly. The tough, resinous walls cracked slightly, and bits of dust and debris started swirling around the pale-skinned girl. She said aloud, "Kill the queen. Don't let them catch you out." As the Therion swooshed invisibly towards the Queen, Vesper turned her baleful glare on the nearest of the guardians. Malice lashed out, tearing at the creature's mind!
  13. Ryougi Yuuki

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    The black-clad shrine maiden braced herself against the force of Tori's jump and the thunder of gunfire, enhanced muscles going taunt as her verdant whip held true to it's task as an anchor. She dropped to the ground between the mech's feet in a single sleek motion, one hand clenched tight and blazing green with her magic. "Sacred Bamboo Grove Ramparts!" came the by-now familiar incantation, Yuuki casting the spellseed at her feet. Mech and maiden were surrounded by a leafy, spiritual fortress in seconds, a flaring challenge to the monsters of the cavern. Yuuki's mouth was open for another call even as her body flared like a green sun in the dark, hair flaring up from her head in the grip of a second surge of power. "Bounded Field Blooming," she incanted, gold eyes flashing around the chamber to take in all the details. The magic glare flashed out in a wave along the floors, walls, and ceilings of the cavern, rushing out to try and claim all green and growing things in range as tools for the shrine maiden.
  14. Tori Cannon

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    The Banshee's rockets propelled it into the cavoernous chamber , flying low Tori saw what Ryan was doing and as soon as he was clear flared up fired off the buster cannon twice at the clumped monsters and landed before the shots even covered the distance
  15. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    The summoning of the Mech, drew the adult's attention, and Ryan summoned his sword again, and looked to Vesper and Yuuki. "i'll draw the adults until Tori gets going, you two knock off the hatchlings, and try to move closer to the queen." With that he leaped over the side down into the cavern, headed straight towards one of the adult warriors, his sword ringing against the armored claw, even as his feet hit the side of it too, where he jumped off, dodging the other claw's swipe and tearing a deep furrow down the creatures back. It vomited acid towards him, but it missed, etching the cavern wall, and now all three warriors turned to engage him as he landed in a crouch, rising and brandishing his sword. He'd drawn them in, and close together too. Meanwhile the queen was starting to turn to them, and the hatchlings already moving underfoot.
  16. Vesper

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    "Okay, so...I just stand in the, uh, trees and have Therion hit the queen?" Vesper asked. She hadn't lit up in here, wary of the smoke attracting attention through whatever Ryan was doing...but she was holding her fingers as if she had one out of sheer habit. She made a mental note to herself not to count 100% on the 'tree' stuff Yuuki could put down. She had some defenses too, after all. "Alright, lets get this over with." Three of those things were pretty close, and who knew how many weren't much farther off. All the ones fighting the natives would probably break off and come straight down here the second the attack started. They'd need to get this messy work done fast.
  17. Ryougi Yuuki

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Yuuki nodded once before unfurling her whip with a crack and flung it at the mech's leg. It stretched and wrapped around the massive metal limb before tugging it's wielder up with the faintest of clangs. She took care to double check that her grip was secure before looking down at Vesper and Ryan. "Going to drop my grove around the mech when it lands," she called, looking like someone's idea of a belt ornament, "Give Cannon a bit more of a fighting chance while you get in place. At least to start." Her grip tightened on the seed pouch gifted to her, trying to look more certain than she felt. Hopefully 'hive queen' in this case meant more fat and helplessly pregnant, not epic monster to make her 'children' look cuddly. Yuuki wouldn't bet on it though.
  18. Tori Cannon

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    "Guess it's time to suit up." She pulled her key fob from her pocket. "I''ll charge in and draw the fire from the warriors you guys hit the queen. Lets do this." Tori thumbed the button on the key and the tiny sliver disc flew away from it's place growing and unfolding to it's full 20 meter height. "No going back now!" she said as she lept into the cockpit and started flipping switches
  19. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    They went in, and with Therion's warnings, somehow they were able to avoid detection, even when creatures passed within ten meters of them. As they went deeper into the hive, they could feel it getting warmer. Another trio of the large bugs wandered by, without seeing them, and they noticed that unlike before, Ryan was sweating. When Tori went to move away from the rock wall but he shook his head. looking at the wall there was a faint glow from his hand connecting them all where they touched the wall. Finally the creatures were gone, and he withdrew his hand, and exhaled. "holy shit that takes alot of power." Ryan had been masking them, keeping them from being detected, but the effort cost him. Therion reported that below them in a cavern or crystals were the queen, and roughly five dozen eggs. There were three grown warriors there, tending the queen, as well as a dozen hatchlings. "You ladies ready for this?" Ryan whispered.
  20. Ryougi Yuuki

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    The shrine maiden brought up the rear as they had worked out, one hand on the handle of her living whip, the other clutching the bag of seeds that Ryan had helped her find. Being in a forest with her powers active was... strange, like words she couldn't quite understand no matter how much she strained or a flashes of something out the corner of her eyes that wasn't there when she turned her head. It was frustrating, something her subconscious told her she should already know how to do. If you asked someone to help you, you should be able to understand their answer, especially with kami and their charges. It chaffed at her sense of stewardship, the presage of future guilt. And with the lightshow her powers put out turning on, off, and every time inbetween if she were to practise... Maybe next world she could go wilder with her powers. Just a little. For practice. Her very best social mask was in place, emotions cloaked. When trouble found them, Yuuki would be there to ward it away. That was what she was here to do, right?
  21. Vesper

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Vesper sighed and ground out her last cigarette on one of the boulders piled near the opening into the mountain. It was one of those days. Her eyes focused on a spot in empty space ahead of Ryan and she said, "Go ahead a bit and watch around us. Don't let anything take us by surprise, but if something IS coming, come and warn me BEFORE you do anything. The less these things know about you, the better. Clear?" The Therion was as taciturn as ever, his eyes concealed behind the gloom within his cowl, but the weight of his invisible gaze pressing down on her nonetheless. "Okay," said Vesper, unsure that it was really that. "Do it then. Go on." She relaxed a little when the hovering specter did as she bid, flashing down the corridor ahead of them, though not far. Never far. To Ryan she said, "Alright. Lets do it."
  22. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    "They wouldn't believe me if I told them." Ryan nodded. "Pretty much how it is in our world regarding us too. Don't worry, we'll make good use of the opening." The rest of the plan was worked out, and with a highspeed run they brought Ryoko back to her base, and left, laying low, camping as it were in the woods. it was somewhat boring, roughing it, but Ryan caught fish from a river, and with Yuuki, they found other foods in the forests. He slept outside, giving the trio of women privacy, such as it was, sleeping inside the mech's roomy cockpit. Ryan had found an oak tree and taken some acorns from it for Yuuki, along with some other seeds he found once they'd set down. Finally the time came, and three bright green flares. "There we go. they're engaging. It's time for us to head out. Vesper, I'll lead, but have your friend go out before us, Tori, you're behind Vesper. Yuuki you bring up the rear, since you're the best at protecting us." Once they were in formation, they head out. The hike wasn't hard, but it was fairly boring. Surprisingly they encountered no enemies, and soon reached the mountain, which had come to resemble a massive anthill, with many new tunnel like openings, all of them easily large enough to have Tori's mech walk through. They could hear the rumble of explosions from the other side of the mountain, the attack was progressing in earnest, and this was their best chance to get in and clear the level.
  23. Ryougi Yuuki

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    She didn't like it. She didn't agree to it. But she could accept it. What choice did she have? It annoyed Yuuki that she hadn't thought of the seed pouch idea. But given what happened to the plants she augmented as she withdrew her energies, falling over into the sundered pits that they used to tower from... It made the caretaker in her squirm unless she had a way to flawlessly locate the seeds after she used them as living grenades. "Would it help if we spent a little time demonstrating you aren't crazy, or are your leaders an imprison and interrogate first bunch? Depending on how long it'll take us to get to Fuji from there, might even help to see what we're asked to kill," the shrine maiden added, glancing up towards the driver's seat
  24. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Ryan nodded. "We'd have to approach on foot, which means a hike, and no mechs, It's doable, so I say lets give it a shot." He looked to Tori and shook his head. "We will need you inside. Since you can call your mech the way you do, it's the one mech we can get in past their defenses for sure. I'm betting the queen is large, and needs to be moved around, and so do those monsters we fought, so it might me tight quarters, but your gundam oughta fit just fine." He looked to Yuuki. "We need to get you a bag of seeds or something. I saw what you did to the tree." His gaze fell on Vesper, and he nodded. "And you're gonna be on the spot abit, As I need you, or at least your buddy, to serve as our recon and early warning." He looked at the local pilot, and nodded. "Do you think your people will go for this?" Ryoko shook her head. "Not right away, but they'd probably not believe any of this. I know the attack will happen as soon as they reqpair from the Okinawa mission." Ryan nodded. "Then we need to get you to your base so you can fill them in, we'll set up a signal, and then head out for where we'll infiltrate the base"
  25. Tori Cannon

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    "Well if the plan is to get in undetected then I'm not going to be much good at that int this," Tori patted her mech, "but I can run interference and draw their attention while you three get in and do the queen"
  26. Vesper

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Vesper blew another puff of smoke and glanced up at nothing again. "So...I'm not a general or anything, but it seems like if you've got their attention, they may not notice us us coming. Or they might not care. Once we're inside though...then what? How do we find the queen before they figure out what we're up to and..." She makes 'spider hands' and wriggles them around.
