MaskedRider Posted March 5, 2008 Share Posted March 5, 2008 [B]Story[/B] Shocker... a terrorist organization that works from the shadows. Based primarily in Japan, the organization was secretly formed shortly after World War II by former Nazi agents. Over the years, the organization has developed highly advanced technology, including cybernetics and genetic amplification. They have developed creatures known as Kaijin, modified humans who were combined with animal DNA and cybernetics to create living weapons, and Shock Troopers, brainwashed humans with slight genetic enhancement. However, Shocker is developing a new weapon... the Masked Riders. The Masked Riders are genetic super soldiers, having combat abilities far beyond that of the average Kaijin or Shock Trooper. A Maked Rider is armed with an advanced suit of armor with highly destructive energy attacks. Once the Masked Rider project is perfected, Shocker hopes to create an army of super soldiers that will take down the worlds governments one at a time, and enforce their reign of terror on the world. However, their ultimate weapon may turn out to be their own undoing... [B]General Idea[/B] This is an RPG based on the Japanese tokusatsu show, Masked Rider (aka Kamen Rider). Shocker attempts to create Masked Rider soldiers, however many of these soldiers turn against the organization. Shocker often sends out Shock Troopers and Kaijin to defeat the Masked Riders. Now the interesting thing is that I'm going to give a lot of room for creativity. You can create your own rider, and you can do what you want to. Want to fight Shocker? Go for it? Want to stay a member of Shocker? That's cool too. Want to just fight the other Riders? Anything goes. You can be good, bad, or whatever you want. Just have fun. [B]Character Sheet[/B] [U]Name[/U] Your characters name and the name of the Rider. Rider names kind of work like Gundam names. Examples are Masked Rider V3, Masked Rider Kabuto, and Masked Rider Stronger. [U]Rider description[/U] Describe BOTH your character and their Masked Rider form. All Masked Riders should be based on an animal, preferably a bug/insect. Here are some examples of previous masked riders to take a look at.

This is what they use to transform (henshin) into their Masked Rider form. The most common device is a belt, but there have been others, such as bracelets, guns, swords, and even cellphones. When in Masked Rider form, the device must be visible on the suit. Also, describe how they transform. All transformations require the person to shout "Henshin". (think morphing in power rangers) [I][url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZqeyntTnQM&feature=related]Examples of Henshins[/url][/I] [U]Finishers[/U] A Masked Rider's final attack. If you're hit by it, it's all over. In the Masked Rider series, each major enemy has to be defeated by a Finisher (not including the Shock Troopers). Name your move (you will yell it out while performing it, kind of like DBZ) and how it works. The name should have part of your Rider's name in it. (Rider Kick, V3 Punch, Rider Shooting, Stronger Charge). If your Rider has any weapons, they can be used in a finisher also, as long as the Finisher is named. Riders usually have one Finisher, but will often make up new ones when teamed up with a partner (When Rider1 and Rider2 work together, they will often use "Double Rider Kick"). [U]MotorBike[/U] The word Masked comes from the suit, while the word Rider comes from the fact that EVERY Masked Rider must have a motorcycle, even if it's not used in combat. Some bikes have armor or weapons on them, some have special abilities (underwater travel), and some even change form (Masked Rider Kabuto's bike transformed into a 4 wheeler with a battering ram). [U]Weapons[/U] Weapons are optional, and if you do choose to use one, then keep it to one or two. Just remember that you cannot defeat Riders or Kaijin with a weapon unless it's part of a Finisher. However, weapons can do damage to Riders and Kaijin, and easily defeat Shock Troopers. [U]Story[/U] Probably the most important part of any superhero (villain?) is their origin. Who were you before you became a Rider? Why did you become a Rider? And now that you are a Rider, what are your goals? Are you good or evil or undecided? Remember that most of Shockers creations did not choose to become a Kaijin/Rider. It's very common for Shocker to kidnap a random person and turn them into a Rider. A lot of Riders also agree to become a rider just to turn on Shocker when it's over. And I'm sure there are a lot of Riders who side with Shocker. Try to be original with it. [B]My Character[/B] [U]Name[/U] Shoen Hongo, aka Masked Rider One (Male) [U]Description[/U] Shoen Hongo is a male, who is 6 foot 3 inches tall. He is neither skinny or muscular looking. He has thick black hair and is about 21 years of age. Masked Rider One is a silver colored Masked Rider, based on a grasshopper. He has large red eyes and two antenna on his head. He has panels on his chest which not only provide extra armor but also release heat exhaust. His back also houses two red small red fans that take air into the armor. His belt has a large oval on the front with a red fan in the middle. Around his neck he wheres a flowing red scarf, which tends to stand out quite a bit. The character design is largely based on the original Masked Rider, but a bit more high tech. [U]Henshin Device[/U] Masked Rider One uses the Typhoon belt to transform. When Shoen is ready for combat, he reveals the belt and strikes a pose, calling out the word "HENSHIN". The fan on the belt spins and he transforms into Masked Rider One. [U]Finishers[/U] Masked Rider One uses the most common finisher of all: Rider Kick. He leaps into the air, and the performs a powerful areal kick on the opponent, calling out "RIDER KICK!" If the move connects, the target usually becomes unstable and combusts into a large explosion. [U]MotorBike[/U] They Cyclone is Masked Rider One's bike of choice. It's a red and white bike with high speed and defense, but has no offensive capabilities. It can however launch One into the air to start his Rider Kick. [U]Weapons[/U] Perfect Zecter is an unknown weapon that One stole from the Shocker base when he escaped. It looks like a high tech sword, but is not sharp at all. One just assumes it is an incomplete experiment. [U]Story[/U] Shoen Hongo's life was going great. He was in college and was with the girl of his dreams, Katherine. However, life changed fast for Shoen, when him and his friend Hayato went for a bike ride one day. They were ambushed by a group of strange men and a bat creature. The last thing Shoen herd before he was knocked out was his friends screams for help. When he awoke, he was no longer the man he once was. He seaked out his loved one Katherine, only to find that the same bat creature had gotten to her first. His once kind heart had been filled with hate and sorrow. He had been the part of an experiment of an organization called Shocker, but they had failed to control him. Shoen Hongo was no more. He was now Masked Rider One, and he swore to avenge his loved one. The red scarf he wears around his neck was once given to him by Katherine. He wears it to try and hold on to what little humanity he had left. [B]Summary[/B] You don't have to know anything about Masked Rider to participate. Actually, I'm expecting most of you won't. Create your characters, and have fun with it. If you have any questions, just ask them. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
