Steam Profile: http://steamcommunity.com/id/NeverForgetTheVarfu/

Time on server:  Since Classic KWG.

Is this a character application, or transfer: Transfer, I guess?

If transfer, what previous roleplay has occurred(Gist of it): Uhh..  Didn't get much use, pretty much just talked to a bird-man about life and death, got stalked by some brotherhood members, socialized with some people.  Server died in like a week or two, so there wasn't much time to really develop.

What OOC items are you requesting? pet flags, maybe.  If we use PAC3, wW flags.  I'll also need a model (or clothing item if we've got those back), the guns and other gear themselves if any exist and placeholders, of course, for those that don't, and then the knife, which I'm almost certain needs a placeholder item for.  I'll hook up with someone if it's authorized, no sweat.

What IC-Only items are you requesting?
- A backpack
- KA-Bar
- .44 Magnum Revolver (With a speed-loader, because gotta go fast)
-Brush Gun
-Standard DR Outfitting.  Duster, type 3 Kevlar vest with ceramic plating, and, of course, the helmet.  Quoth the wiki, "A military-issue armor boasting a desert camouflage pattern from the same manufacturer as the L.A.P.D. riot armors, worn with a matching military helmet with built-in low light optics, a combination IR/white light lamp and gas mask, a green duster and a set of military khaki pants. The owner's data is printed on the collar and includes rank, name, service branch, and blood type, to facilitate easy identification and possibly treatment of wounded or dead soldiers." (Will PM the helmet data if required)

Roleplay experiences?  Yes, I have experiences with Roleplay.  If you want me to really list servers and such, ye' can just ask.

Why should you have all this?[One paragraph required]  Because it was already authorized previously by you, only a few months ago.  I should have all of this because I want to contribute to Roleplay.  Could be giving jobs, could be taking jobs, could be providing a sense of danger that isn't in the sense of White Knight labor, could be showing the great people of the wastes what a desert ranger does.  Maybe, just maybe, I'll show the people of the wasteland how to tie their shoes.  Who knows.  It's just a suggestion that I have it, as with all applications.



[ThreeTen paragraphs required]Backstory:
 
   Oscar Leach was born mid-day in Minnesota's burnt-out Rochester Hotel, some time in the 2260's.  With no medical equipment readily available, and with no medically talented individuals around, Oscar's mother, miss Rylee Leach passed away.  At a young age, he began to notice the world around him, more specifically, the turmoil surrounding the Rochester area, with a nearby power plant leaking radiation and the nearby Mayo Clinic attracting raiders and bandits.  With a small town forming of scavengers and other wanderers, it seemed clear that the town needed protection, with some of the ex-militants stepping forward to take guard posts and reinforce the lightly-barricaded outer walls of the town.  
 
   Oscar's own father stepped forward as the head of the guard, though did not expose why, being a man adorning a dark outfit with seemingly no weapons aside from a simple hunting rifle, where some of the more hardened individuals that had come forth for guard duty seemed to all be wearing leather or metallic armors and using assault rifles and what their caps could afford them in sidearms.  When questioned further, he simply shrugged it off, mentioning something about how it's "the man behind the gun" and not the gun in actuality.  Years passed before any activity was spotted.  No one got a good look at exactly who it was when he took a bullet to the head.  No time to scream, even, before the raiders on the outside of the town were set upon the walls, clambering over and onto the previously downed guard's post.  
   
   Oscar, loitering at the refurbished Mayo Clinic while his father was on guard duty, was quickly met by the gunfire as they rushed inwards towards the center of the town, took respite in the back rooms of the facility.  After hearing it dim down and checking the front of the store, he noticed a man start to try the door.  To ready for his entrance, Oscar would pick up a multitool knife in the back of the clinic, proceeding to take place by the door until the man came through the door.  After stabbing him in the leg and taking a glancing blow from the rifle to the side of the head, with the man readying to blast him down, Oscar reached over and pulled the sidearm from the raider's side-holster, taking a bullet to the chest and firing off a few blind shots towards the man as he fell back towards the doorway from the wound.  With one of the blows catching him in the shoulder, another in the neck, the latter bringing the man to his knees as the fourteen-year-old staggered off, dropping the pistol and clutching at the bullet wound.
   
   Moving out of the building, he would have been blinded, a bright white smoke sprouting, followed by a loud crack, as the raiders no matter where they're facing would become momentarily stunned, as tiny *Tink* noises were heard, hitting the jugulars of the raiders at a semi-fast pace (one round every second), taking out the assault rifle wielding members first, until all but one are shot, the other one not being shot as a Uniformed Ranger would approach, holstering his .223 and drawing an east coast variant of combat shotgun, loaded with slug rounds, and likely take his gear and force him to go back to whatever raider camp he was in to inform them to stop being such pricks and doing raiderous shit.
   
   While cleaning up and giving a light search to the dead bodies for any specifically branded items or noteworthy things, the ranger would notice the injured kid laying on the ruined sidewalk, presumably gone into shock, and pick Oscar up, taking him back to his house and patching him up.  After fully recuperating and waking up in the ranger's home, he was asked a few questions about the incident, stating that it was probably due to rumors that the Rochester Mayo Clinic held supplies of drugs and antibiotics, most of which were ruined by the bombs, the rest looted or expiring and being discarded before the town's refurbishing.  Going briefly over formalities, the man revealing himself to be named Bill and Oscar telling his own name, before asking about the townsfolk, namely his Father.  Plainly telling Oscar that his dad was dead, with Bill giving the full truth, he was broken with no family on the earth anymore and still injured from the bullet taken back at Rochester.  Deciding it best to be left alone and rest for a bit while contemplating how things went (Keep reading, I swear it's not edgy.)
   
   After several days of chatting with Bill and eventually asking about the remaining raiders left alone and whether or not they could or should be targeted, he surprisingly was met with positivity of the idea.  After resting for a few more days until being fully healed and ready for such an adventure, he received a makeshift set of leather armor and an assault rifle.  Shortly after a small plan was made, the two snuck into the camp after a bit of scouting and proceeded to eliminate them, with all of the kills to Bill, Oscar only providing "suppressive fire" in the sense that he had only ever used a gun once at point-blank many days prior.  Bill, being impressed with the bravery from Oscar to go against an entire camp of raiders and using an assault rifle with no prior information, not mentioning it once, along with lacking a father would bring him to the decision that would direct the course of Oscar's life: to train him.
   
   Training would start with the simple basics: How to survive in the wastes.   Things such as finding water, testing water to make sure its pure enough to drink, and how to cook animals.  Survival training would also include small injections of various poisons to make his body more resistant to them, so that a radscorpion sting can be shrugged off.  The process would be "like medicine", however, as explained by Bill, instead of it healing your body it hurts your body a tiny bit so it can build antibodies to fight against the poison and make you VERY resistant or outright immune to it, however, only working against animals that don't solely focus on poison, but do use it.  Once having been taught the basics of survival, Oscar would start to get taught about medicines, specifically herbal remedies, Bill commenting that "if the legion/tribals knows it, the Desert Rangers likely know it too."  Then Oscar would learn about poisons, such as Cazador poison, and how to create a weapon that can take acidic items such as a non-corrosive material like bronze or copper, for example, pouring stomach acid over it, mild enough to not melt it outright, and not exactly as corrodible as iron or steel.
   
   Afterwards, Oscar would be taught CQC, which would "probably be the hardest part" for him to learn, Bill would probably take a few pages from how other rangers like himself were trained and would start a sparring ring betting, where he would find random contenders to fight Oscar to unconsciousness, and would get people to bet so that during the training, not only would Oscar get some experience, but Bill would get some money.  After that, Bill would begin to pit Oscar against CQC animals to the death, starting with dogs, but before Bill sets him against a live dog, he teaches Oscar a special move he was taught, to stop a dog. It consists of cramming your arm down the dog's throat and using your other hand to cover its nostrils, it will stop trying to bite, and will begin to suffocate, as it tries to get your arm out, if you keep this up for long enough the dog will suffocate and die.  Of course, Bill explained, he would still have a bite wound on his arm and it will need to be treated, however Oscar's survival training already covered that so there is little to worry about.  

   After Oscar learned his way around murdering dogs, Bill would pit him against ghouls in unarmed combat, knowing his experience with the finesse of humans and the ferocity of dogs will aid him with fighting ghouls.  Once Oscar learned how to fight ghouls, Bill decided to give Oscar a test of sorts, while Oscar was sleeping, he slipped into a yao guai costume of sorts (it was a taxidermied yao guai with a bunch of fluff inside of it) and wake up Oscar by kindly rubbing his paw over his face to see how he'd react, which was by rolling to the right away from the "yao guai" and keeping his eyes on it at all times.  Bill would at this point remove his yao guai head, telling him that it was a test of his fight or flight response, and is glad that he picked correctly, only a fool or a man with nothing to live for would attempt to attack a 1 ton yao guai with no weapons. As a reward for his properly attuned fight or flight response, Bill resumes his training, moving on to teaching him how to fight multiple people at once, to do this, he decided the best method was to send him against a pack of 6 regular gecko hunters that were de-clawed and de-teethed, if he was sent to the ground by the pack he had failed, and he kept giving him this test until he succeeded.  

   For the first attempt, he would try to gouge the eyes of the geckos out, and in the time it takes to affect one gecko, the others would bring Oscar to the ground.  For the second attempt, Oscar would try to use surrounding sand to blind a few geckos and kick the rest back, dealing with the non-stunned before moving on to those unable to fight back, though only stunning 3, leaving himself open and proceeding to be tackled.  For the third attempt, he would firmly place his heel behind himself in a linear fashion, reaching out quickly as the first gecko moves up, grabbing it's neck and snapping it as the others draw near, smacking one out of the way, and when pushed against his heel, throwing the gecko down at the rest, before kicking sand up as in attempt 2, getting three of the four and using the fourth as with the first, beating down the rest of the hunters with it's body.  From there Bill would then pit Oscar against geckos with teeth, however he knows for a fact it will change nothing over the prior duel and he'd win effortlessly like before.  From here Bill would decide to mix and match things as he would pit Oscar against multiple humans with dogs, giving him SPECIFIC directions to take care of them all NON-LETHALLY, which would be heeded with great care.  

   For the first attempt, Oscar would kick sand like crazy towards the dogs until they neared enough that the humans could start to come at him, at which point the dogs would not be phased, instead leaping and tackling him  to the ground early, causing him to hit one mid-air, but be sent back due to lack of proper footing, and tackled.  For the second attempt, Oscar would move his back heel behind him linearly, sending a foot into the first dog's snout, stunning it, moving on to the next dog and repeating the process until the humans got close, Oscar would move back, retrieving sand from the ground and throwing it as soon as it would be a guaranteed hit on at least 2 of them, moving back away from the swings of those blinded, trying to kick the closer person towards the one behind them, or get them near each other, hitting the man in the solar plexus, resulting in him passing out, repeating this kick on the other blinded man, narrowing the fight to a 1v1, though the last fighter would run away, seeing as it was a 1v6 with clearly unfair odds, and Oscar, the minority, won.  

   For Oscar's final unarmed test, Bill decides to really test Oscar's potential, and pits him against a yao guai WITHOUT claws nor teeth, telling Oscar that he has full permission to kill it and it has full permission to kill Oscar.  As soon as the battle began, the yao guai would roar, and start running towards Oscar  in an attempt to crush him against the barrier, resulting in him leaping to the right as it charges, causing the guai to stand on it's hind legs and attempt to stomp on him, Oscar rolling away before it can, and getting a moment of brief reaction before it turns to get some distance between himself and the beast, getting caught in the back of the head with a paw as it moved closer, turning and quickly moving his footing into proper alignment and sending a foot into it's snout, momentarily stunning it, and then repeating the attack until the Yao Guai would attempt to bite him on the sixth try, getting his leg caught, making him punch it in the nose several times, before crushing the Guai's eye sockets and causing it to simply force itself upon Oscar, using it's girth in an attempt to crush him.  Oscar would kick off with the foot not in the Yao Guai's mouth whilst prying the mouth open with his hands, freeing himself and sending himself back as the Yao Guai falls.  Oscar would get up quickly as the Yao Guai would be doing the same, albeit much slower, due to having a messed up sense of smell and sight, moving to it's side and proceeding to unleash a flurry of attacks aimed at it's underbelly, dodging a paw batting at him from the beast, quickly leaping out of the way as the Yao Guai attempts to charge him into the wall, instead hitting the wall itself and developing a concussion, causing Oscar to begin to hit it in the head several times, the yao guai having had its brain hemorrhage by now, and dying moments later.  
   
   After Oscar's foot healed up from that confrontation, he was awarded a desert ranger duster, however none of the gear to fit with it, and was given a dagger, 6 inches in length, and chrome, oddly familiar to Bill Conor's knife, before being taught sharpening, cleaning, and polishing the knife, before the "fun part".  Bill would start by sending Oscar against a single gecko hunter, teeth and claws included.  Oscar would use sand, as the same in the unarmed-training against geckos, before simply hitting it in the head with the hilt of the dagger.  Next would be a single FIRE gecko, though the same trick as used on the Gecko Hunter would work, sand to it's eyes, then circling around and stabbing it in the head.  Bill decides, for the sake of comical relief, to send a pack of 6 german shepherds against Oscar, all of which with a pink bow on their tail, their mission being to kill him.  Oscar would take his footing linearly, and, like the legion mongrels, kick each dog in the snout as they near, stabbing those that evade the kicks.

   Bill would take note of Oscar's rather quick progress and decides to throw a curve ball at him, a protectron.  He would run around the protection and come close, stabbing it in the optics and sending it into a frenzy.  Bill would watch this, mad at himself that he threw such an easy challenge, decided it may be best to give Oscar a REAL test, so, with hesitation, he decides to give him his trial to mastering the CQC portion, as he unlocks the whole cage of fire geckos, containing 6 fire geckos.  The geckos would get as far as Oscar stabbing the first one before realizing that he was using a human shield, attempting to pounce on Oscar while spewing fire.  Oscar would, using the first gecko as a human shield, use the knife as if it were a sword, cutting the geckos as they pounced, trying to use the inertia that they had to impale them.  One would get impaled, leaving four more as they would attempt to circle him from all directions and pounce him, leaving Oscar to then try to pull the knife out, simultaneously using the human shield-gecko to bunt them out of the way, as with the first CQC adventure with geckos, just like a flail.  One would be knocked to the side, stunned as the three would attempt to breathe fire on him, causing him to cycle back, the fire singing his duster slightly, at which point Oscar would try to use his knife to stab the first one that pops up (if charging) or throw the fire gecko still in-hand at the first one and then stab it and use the first one again, the chivalric tactic working to finish off almost all of the geckos, leaving one attempting to set Oscar on fire, resulting in him diving towards the side of the gecko and stabbing it in the neck, arising victorious, the only mark of combat being a bloodied blade along with a dusty, singed duster, and first degree burns to the ass.
   
   Oscar having passed Bill's trials considers him as to have passed all his CQC trials, and moves on to make him learn gun-play, as Bill would teach him all the types of weapons the DR use.  He would, like the knife training, start off by teaching him how to clean, polish, and maintain the guns used before the "FUN" part.  Bill would start by training Oscar in accuracy against living and non-living targets alike, as well as testing his gun drawing skills.  These weapons used would include just about every form of ballistic weaponry except for mini-guns.  After explaining how to field-strip the weapons and providing demonstrations, as well as getting Oscar comfortable with it, he would begin to get Oscar to do it with more speed than previously.  As a test of his mettle, Bill would make him field-strip and put five guns back together in two minutes, barely making it and being shoved, firearms in tow, in the direction of a far-off horde of cazadors passing by, Bill instructing him of his mission: Kill all of the cazadors.  Sneaking up within range, Oscar would proceed to take stock of the guns, setting up the guns beside himself and taking a Brush Gun from the group, proceeding to target the wings of the cazadors and firing to pierce, taking down three cazadors with every magazine and finishing them off before they could get close enough to do damage.
   
   Passing the test by dispatching each cazador, Bill would move Oscar on to Survival training past the basics from earlier.  Teaching him how to make simple medicines off of herbs growing naturally and which would be edible, making a clear point about which would be poisonous and which would be used to cancel out the poisonous herbs in case of an emergency.  That night, Bill would proceed to strip Oscar of his weaponry and armor, leaving him in an unmarked location with just a note explaining how he had been poisoned the night prior, and how he would have three days to cure the toxin.  Checking himself over for any visible sign of a wound, and finding none.  He would quickly set out to collect a small amount of xander roots, as well as collecting broc flowers in patches, then proceeding to seek out a radscorpion pack, singling out a lone smaller scorpion in the back of the pack, proceeding to grab it by the tail and stomp on it's head until the shell breaks and it dies, ripping off the tail and a small portion of it's broken shell's meat, as well as diluting the poison from the glands from the tail into a flask, crushing up a few of the Xander roots and broc flowers and placing them inside, shaking it and leaving it to set for a while before taking a swig of the bitter drink, and going to rest, a bit more time bought for himself with that concoction.  Setting out the next night, the same three ingredients in tow, he would meander until nightfall, quickening his pace upon spotting a cave's entrance, staying beside it, on a rock.  Staying alert, he would wait until the nighstalker pack had descended from it, lowering down a portion of the Radscorpion's meat as bait.  Upon one of them moving in to eat the meat, Oscar would jump down onto the nightstalker, grabbing it by the head and quickly twisting it before it would have a chance to yelp.  Draining the blood from the nightstalker with his teeth and letting it into the flask of diluted poison and crushed herbs, he would add a few more xander roots and broc flowers to the mix, filling it to the brim and taking a deep gulp of the bitter antidote.  
   
   After Oscar completed his trials, he would have to make his way back to Bill's house, once he returns Bill would be nowhere to be seen, however there is a table with a cubbard above labeled "FOOD", on the table being a duster, type 4 ceramic plated Kevlar vest, and his 5 guns he chose, as well as the 6 inch dagger.  Oscar would ignore the items on the table for now, instead searching the premise top-to-bottom for Bill, finding him nowhere.  Upon walking to the "FOOD" cubbard, two feet kick out from the cubbard, slamming into Oscar's head and sending him flat on his ass, as Bill exits from it, saying "Final lesson, watch out for traps".  Bill would then bring his hands up, and says "Now, show me what you learned, CQC's clearly your strong suit" as he places one foot back, and one forward.  Oscar would move back to his feet, placing his feet back into position linearly, saying "But there's no sand here." to which Bill would respond, "M'boy, you will fight every person in just about every kind of environment".  Oscar would nod slightly, keeping his eyes on Bill and replying "Start?".  

   "Of course" would be the response, prompting Oscar to begin to move closer, attempting to send a kick into Bill's side, causing Bill to send his elbow into Oscar's shin to elbow block it, attempting to counter with a punch to the solar plexus, causing Oscar to duck and take the punch to the face, Bill taking two steps back.  Oscar would move forward, footing back into place, and attempt to kick Bill in the ankle, Bill moving his front foot back and being driven on his back heel.  Oscar would follow up with another kick, this time aimed at his shin, causing Bill to move back again, bumping into the cubbard, Oscar repeating the kick, landing it but Bill charging forward and attempting to tackle Oscar.  Oscar would, being caught off-guard, attempt to push Bill back, managing to do so.  Bill, regaining his footing, would then receive a side-kick and then proceed to use his destability in an attempt to push Oscar over, saying "You kick too much.", being met with Oscar's reply of "Maybe!" and Oscar attempting to use the momentum from Bill to push him behind himself, however, Bill would let himself be grabbed, attempting to crush Oscar.  Oscar would move around to the side and bring his left hand up, delivering a quick blow to Bill's head.  Slightly stunned, Bill would slam him against the cubbard, prompting Oscar to bring up a leg and kick Bill back.  Oscar would then rush forward, attempting to hit him in the jaw, but Bill would duck down and attempt to shoulder-charge him to the floor, Oscar grabbing him by the head and attempting to slam him into the cubbard, however Bill would drop his weight in an attempt to force Oscar to the ground before he can get slammed, Oscar doing the same and them both being taken to the ground.  Bill would then attempt to punch him about the face, Oscar grabbing his wrists and trying to go for the headbutt, however, Bill would simply lower his head and grab Oscar by the waist, getting punched in the face but retaining a strong grip, and supplexing Oscar.  Oscar, being stunned, would then roll away and regain his posture and footing, Bill allowing him to do so.  

   Oscar would then move back into proper footing alignment and...wait.  They would have stared long at each other before Bill would suddenly try and charge forward, however juking to the left and trying to send a spin-kick towards Oscar's side.  Oscar would move into position with ducking as Bill would charge, attempting to shoulder-charge him to the ground as Bill had done prior, taking the spin-kick to the side.  Bill would be shoulder charged, as he is hit to the ground he attempts to bend his knees as he is sent to the ground and use the momentum to throw Oscar several feet behind him.  Oscar would be countered and thrown off, hitting the floor and moving back into position with the same footing, now on the opposite side of Bill.  Bill would proceed to move back onto his feet and regain his footing, Oscar allowing him to do so.  Another staring contest would occur, broken with Bill attempting to charge Oscar with a shoulder charge. Oscar would then punch Bill square in the nose, aiming as he nears, using his other hand to grab him by the shoulder and stopping him, Bill being thrown on his ass and starting to fight dirty and send his boot into Oscar's groin.  

   Oscar would be caught by surprise and, not wearing any protection due to still being in his clothing from being left in the desert, stagger back from the blow, stunned.  Bill would then kick at his shins, Oscar moving back and bumping into the wall, quickly fleeing the household through the door.  Bill would then stand, saying "We're not done yet Oscar," Oscar calling from the doorway, turning back "I know." and proceed to walk outside, Bill charging him while his back is turned, Oscar running outside and taking a handful of sand, turning and trying blinding Bill with it.  Bill has sand thrown at him, however he would be hardly phased, years of fighting through pain and relying on his senses has rendered him highly resistant to the sand pocket tactic, and being Oscar made no attempt to dodge he is bear-charged outside and tackled.  Oscar would then go in for the headbutt, not being able to do much else, landing it as Bill releases him and goes in to punch him about the face, Oscar grabbing hold of Bill's wrists and promptly taking a headbutt.  Oscar would tough through it, being stunned slightly, throwing Bill off to the left and rolling away after a difficult struggle, Oscar would then get up after rolling, re-placing his footing and beginning to brace himself again for more combat.  Bill would then rush forward and attempt to shoulder bash him to the ground, being punched in the face and grabbed by the shoulder, his nose bending at a sickening angle, though himself seeming unphased and sending both of the men to the ground.  He would be pushed off, Oscar rolling out and both of them standing up, Bill snapping his nose back into place with a slight yelp and using the distraction to charge Oscar to the ground, being met with Oscar rolling onto him, trying to punch him in the face but missing and side-toppling, following through and rolling away, but being met with Bill uppercutting him.  Oscar would fall back and kick Bill in the shin, Bill gasping and throwing a punch towards Oscar's nose, blood coming out as Oscar tries to return the favor, Bill ducking and hopping forward, sending a flurry towards Oscar's chest, landing two punches before being kicked in the chest, Bill  letting out a heavy wheezing noise, nearly being sent to one knee as he shakily brings his fists up, trying to slam both of his hands into either side of Oscar's head to discombobulate him, landing it as Oscar hops back dizzily, falling on his back, Bill walking over and waiting until he got up.  Upon pushing himself up, the last effects of the previous hit leaving him, he would turn to Bill and ask,

"...Good?"
"Hm?"
"You said CQC was my strong suit...Were those skills used well, and was the duel good?"
"Am I unconscious yet?"
"Nope.", continuing, "Do you really wanna have an injured battle now, to see who can land the first punch and knock the other one out with it, though?"
"Do raiders call it quit part way through a fight? Do geckos decide "Fuck this man" and run away part way through a battle just because of a few punches?", continuing,
"Finish this, we're both pretty fucked up anyways"
"Yet...neither of us is a gecko or a raider, and the fight was just finished.  Why add more injury to a friend, when you can save that ferocity for the actual geckos and raiders?"
"Because this is a test, your final one, we have time after all this to mend to our wounds"

"...Fine.", Oscar would reply, pushing Bill lightly.  Oscar would then step forward and take a deep breath in, delivering a quick elbow to Bill's solar plexus, the blow being blocked by Bill bringing his hands up.  He would repeat the attack, being this time met with Bill punching into his elbow, successfully fracturing it.  Oscar would then let out a small cry of pain and moving back, Bill saying "You use that move too much," and repositioning his hands.  Oscar would then reposition his footing, taking in a deep breath, grunting as he brings up his non-injured arm.  Bill would then attempt a high-kick towards Oscar's neck, though Oscar would duck under it, moving in to deliver a blow but being met with Bill's leg wrapping around his neck and bringing him into a choke-hold, sending him to the ground.  Only having one usable arm, he would quickly think and bite into Bill's thigh, screaming out in pain and bringing his leg back, breaking off of the chokehold.  Oscar would then use the surprise to propel himself forward into Bill, hitting him in the side of the head, Bill being sent into a daze and kicking randomly, hitting Oscar in the stomach before he leaps forward again and hits Bill square in the nose, his nose being mildly crooked at this point, himself being stunned.  Both of the men would scramble to their feet, Oscar kicking him in the gut, Bill then charging forward and both of their fists meeting, bloodying them a bit, Bill sending a fist into Oscar's chest to weaken him a bit, Oscar gasping and sending a kick into Bill's lower chest, his eyes watering, done in by continued hits...  Oscar would give a short laugh at the whole ordeal, shortly falling over and succumbing to his wounds, passing out.  
   
   Bill would help treat Oscar's wounds, and Oscar would help treat Bill's, shortly after taking a day to celebrate the completion of so many trials over such a long time.  Being geared and walking with a bit of pep, much to the amusement of Bill, Oscar would travel with him for several years hereafter, separating after a long time to walk his own path, hoping the best for the old finely aged man who taught him everything.  During his travels, he would come back to the area of his birth and take a walk around, eventually coming to the outskirts of a strange town and come upon a little girl scavenging outside of it.  Asking her what she would be doing, she would jump back a bit, then continue, saying "Oh, I'm just looking for something I left here awhile ago."  He would crouch down, asking "What would that be, if you don't mind me askin' ?".  

"A small bag of pencils, colored and not."
"Need help?"
"Nah"
"Do you have a house out here?"
"Not here, this is a long-walk from it."
"And your parents just-uh...let you go off alone?"
"...Yes."
"Would you mind if me and your papa had a sit down and chatted for a bit, just a friendly conversation?"
"He's not uh... Here. I mean--. He's not Here-Here, in the area."
"Where might he be, then?"
"I uh... I don't know."
"...And where might your mum be, then?"
"..."
"...Then...Who takes care of you right now, and can I speak to them?  Or are they...not in the area?"
"Rylee used to, but uh... He kinda just left..." she would hesitate, continuing "Or... She..."
"So no one takes care of you?"
"Well...", continuing, "When Rylee left, I kinda left Anna and Aurelius. So..."
". . . Where do you live?"
"In a town, not a lot of mean people there."
"Where might this town be?"
The girl would stand up.  "It's over there... Can we stop the twenty questions?"  
"Sure...thanks." would be Oscar's reply, moving out towards the area she pointed out...


What are your perks/skills?  Simply put, Conor-Grade Desert Ranger training and many-much wasteland experiences.  If you want, I'll put a wall of text here and for the following questions.

What are your faults/flaws?  I'd rather PM them.  Take your guesses and call your bets from the backstory if you want, they're probably obvious.

Character traits:  Not sure if that's the same as Faults/Flaws/Perks/Skills, but I'll PM them too, because hurr durr secrecy.

(Optional)Character Description: Something like "A man in dusty leather armor with a trench coat and gas mask.".   If I remember the description I used last time, I'll do it.

Notes: App was created on 12/13/14, and hasn't been changed other than just to fit the new format.  Also, I changed that 'three paragraphs required' to 'ten paragraphs required' due to the fact that I consulted Snyder before I started, and he said that Desert Rangers, seeming to be overpowered as they are, need a really good story behind being, essentially, a legend.  It probably should also be a note that all interactions with characters (Bill Conor & Unnamed little girl #257) were done with real people for the sake of making a good story.  Oh, and the Rylee Leach & actual Rylee that's an actual character were coincidental.  It was a reference to a different person entirely.
If you have any questions that you REALLY want answered, just drop it below, or add me.  Steam is http://steamcommunity.com/id/NeverForgetTheVarfu/ just as it is above.
All feedback is welcomed.

Okay, so while I would love to give you paragraph upon paragraph of opinion, I unfortunately do not have the time. So, I'd like to say that while I would absolutely love to see this character again, I do not believe he'd fit in any way, shape, or form in the current RP setting. Like it seems as though he would be absolutely broken in the situation he was allowed, considering it would seem that there is a lack of guns and training. Also, on the other hand, the town will need something like this to defend against mutants such as Mancore, should he even be allowed that is. I'd love to plus support this application, but I'm going to give a friendly, happy

heu:
Made me giggle a little bit because of two reasons:
1. He only got about an hour of playtime on the only day that I was available during that reboot, and there were only maybe 2 - 3 people on the server at the time, all of which I barely interacted with.  It's also why I had a hard time naming this, because it's not REALLY a transfer, but he did get that hour in.
2. You're not the first person to say that.  I passed it by some people outside of the community before I posted it oh-so long ago, and there were a few people that said the same thing about him not fitting in with the RP.
So I spent about a week making an application/getting it prepped and, against all odds, got it authorized only to RP for an hour before I had to go and the server died.  It's funny to look back on it, but maybe that's just me.
Okay, spoiler's over.

People can apply for guns and training.  You just have to come up with an application that makes sense- the main reason, as far as I can tell, that it seems like very few people will have guns or knowledge of how to use them is because there are few applications.  You can't hop on a server, say "oi, this is an old character, load me up with some gear" or expect to find that stuffs all over, just laying around on the floor.  I'll be vague because it's hush-hush, even though you already know about it, but with the loot/item system we're using, it encourages applications rather than jumping straight into the action, it seems.
He's also a neutral party with the people.  Not exactly the kind of guy to just start mugging people with his big guns or go flaunting them around, but not really the guy to hang around town waiting for some threat to arrive like a town guard would.
All of that said, yeah, he's partially broken until people decide to start applying for characters with whatever they can think up.
Before that, he's just the first guy to snag some sweet loot and know-how, if authorized.

Well the thing is - We were told we're not allowed to start applying for whatever we want. We were told to be practical, and to avoid heavy armour and weaponry, sooo...yknow.

Noone said that you couldn't start applying.
The only thing said about applications was that the staff team reserves the right to deny items from applications if they're too OP. You can't bring a deathcannon into the game, but you surely can apply for things like Guns, Armor, Medical equipment, etc, within reason. Whatever you can think up, within reason, you can apply for. Heck, you can apply for things outside of reason, but that doesn't mean it'll get accepted.

Character's backstory is well explained and was fun to read, but the items you are asking for are simply too much.

<insert witty title>:
Thanks, I tried to make it better than the last few backstories for my characters because they were a bit lackluster.  Less fluff, and more action in this one while trying to remain within the realm of character development and staying outside of Fist of the North Star.
As for the items, no traders messes up the brush gun and revolver (because they need ammo that isn't replenishable atm due to the player-based economy), and the rest of it isn't really a big deal (as far as I can tell, at least), but maybe opinions will change after the first few lootgrab events.  That said- and I don't mean to come off as rude- but I'm not gonna change it, due to how severe that hindrance with the ammo is.  After all, they become one-trick-ponies because of how vendorship works now.

I can respect you standing behind what you're asking for, and perhaps my opinion and that of others will change once the ball starts rolling.

However as good as a point is that ammo will be hard to get, Ranger armor is very powerful in a server that will never have power armor. Almost THE strongest armor as a matter of fact. And by the way it sounds, Oscar will be on the 'good guy' side, correct me if I'm wrong. and the Slavers will need to overcome someone inherently better armed, armored, and trained than them, as well as the other expected sources of people who hate EVIIILL (and no I don't plan on being a slaver if that opinion seems biased).

You're entirely correct with the assumption that Oscar will end up on the side of good rather than evil, due to innate dislike of raiders, marauders, bandits, and, as you mentioned, slavers.  I was gonna have him follow a different path than the lolwhiteknights that are seen all too often, but ultimately, it's just the same side.

As for the armor, I see what you mean with it being powerful, but I would like to point out that there will be Power Armor used on the server.  It's just that it will be event-only.
On the same topic, much like the guns and their ammunition, the armor will be hard to mend once it gets damaged by <insert danger here>, meaning that it's just a matter of time before it's worn down and effectively useless, unless we get a good craftsman character on the server.
 
As for slavers overcoming this character and whoever decides to go in the direction of good rather than evil as well, it's just a matter of how they go about it.  If they choose to go head-on into a battle with a really tough group of opponents, then there's a high chance they lose.  If they decide to plan out a strategic attack or do some espionage action, then they might win.  All up to them.

Fair enough. So long as you avoid lolwhiteknighting and asspulling ammo and armor repairs like I've seen some less reputable people do, I change my stance to +support. Seems reasonable enough, if used properly.

Here's what I say.
I'm not really impressed with this application at all. It's kinda of... Tedious to be honest. I haven't even rped with you and I can kinda tell I wouldn't want to.

A) RP is about Development. Not the weapons. Not the items. You were here since Classic Kiwi Weed Gamers? Then you should be able to rp what happened to your equipment. Transfers are sort of an annoying way of not being behind the curveball. Especially when the server is fresh and new. Servers that start with people having guns, are the ones that.. Nevermind.

B) Your responses are seemingly requests to justify yourself or an immature meme. AYEEE LMAO. This makes my willy soft. If this is about a transfer, and people are uncomfortable with you having a certain gun or an armor piece that will be seen as over powering? It shouldn't need to be justified. You should know this.

C) You are literally building a greeding pot. You want kevlar, 2 guns a knife and a backpack. AND THE LIST STILL GOES ON
-Standard DR Outfitting. Duster, type 3 kevlar vest with ceramic plating, and, of course, the helmet. Quoth the wiki, "A military-issue armor boasting a desert camouflage pattern from the same manufacturer as the L.A.P.D. riot armors, worn with a matching military helmet with built-in low light optics, a combination IR/white light lamp and gas mask, a green duster and a set of military khaki pants. The owner's data is printed on the collar and includes rank, name, service branch, and blood type, to facilitate easy identification and possibly treatment of wounded or dead soldiers." (Will PM the helmet data if required)

Do you want a fucking blow job armor cock piece too? Or a dog companion?

/Neutral.


I change my vote.

-Declined.

I haven't even unpacked, c'mon...  Oh well, here we go with a short explanation of why it took me so long to reply because judging by the date you posted, you're going to wonder: I was on vacation.  Went down to Del Ray, had a quiet time in a relative's condo, it was pretty nice overall.  I even got some pictures of alligators from the trails, but that's some stuff for another time...  Now let's get to the actual response.

In the same nitpicky format, I'm going to reply, but just as you did, I'm going to have a bit of general information at the top.  Now, I don't mind if you think it's tedious or you don't like the application, but lying to people isn't cool, man.  You've got me on your friends list on steam because we met on a ROLEPLAYING SERVER.  At least check out the application before you reply- my steam name and profile link are at the top!

A) Again, read the application.  This character was in the most recent reboot that died, not from the beginning of classic KWG.  So you know what?  I will rp what happened to the gear- absolutely nothing.

B) It seems like you just skimmed over this application and the responses, really- but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.  I attempted to justify usage of the weapons and armor, that's true, yet I did so in what I thought to be a respectful manner.  If people are uncomfortable with a certain gun or an armor piece, yet there is an unseen aspect to the certain gun or armor piece worthy of redemption, or they simply have had bad experiences with the item in question, you can explain yourself rather than being standoffish and ignoring them.  You should know this.

C) I'll be honest with you, I had to look up 'greeding pot' because I didn't understand what you meant by it, and I still don't.  Searching it just comes up with a bunch of yu-gi-oh stuff, and greeding isn't a word.  And yeah, I am asking for kevlar- which you restated by copying and pasting the last item on the list, the outfitting-, two guns, a knife, and a backpack.  If you want to give a compelling reason as to why this is bad, then please, do so in a follow-up comment.

As for that last note, you sound angry.  Or maybe you were angry three days ago.  Either way, please, reply in a collected manner if you choose to do so.

Your equipment is overpowered for the current point in the server - We don't need a second Desert Ranger, as one is enough - and the combination of the armor and weapons would immediately make you the second deadliest - if not the deadliest - character in the server on Day FOUR.

Get outa' here with this - Transfer apps are duuuumb - especially since all the backstories are pretty much just 'I went that way and then this way and then did that and now I'm somehow in this exact area with these exact people.', which is pretty much just 'I'm here because i said so.'

I had more to say but I forgot...

We've got another desert ranger? Whaaaat? There wasn't even an application posted! How?!
And please, read the application before you judge it by the title, my man. It's only a transfer application because I used it for an hour. Otherwise, it'd just be a standard application, and nothing really transpired in that hour aside from edginess and getting stalked.

Oh. Sorry for assuming you didn't. If you don't like the gear, and even with what I explained of it's drawbacks when I commented with Scrat, then I'm sorry, but I'm not gonna change it.
Also, who the hell is this second desert ranger?

Snyder - And it's got much less gear than this Ranger, so obviously I prefer it over this one. - And no need to apologize, you want what you want, it just won't make me want this character around.

Since the server is small and every non admin and non NCR character is the only armed presence in the immediate area, I suggest just rolling a new character with his own unique bits of story attached until the server actually takes off both player and economy wise so perhaps until then you could wait with the character application because at this current moment it seems a little unfair to us all. I have played on KWG earlier as well so I could just as easily make an application for a ghoul that has a hunting shotgun and a set of medical equipment, but I will not because this is not the right time for such additions. We are going through a "hobo phase" and so far I am enjoying myself actually working for a single box of insta-mash and scavanging wood for two hours just for a pack of cigarettes and some 5.56 rounds.

1. That video is...pretty accurate.  Once we get a final verdict from Snyder, the fun stops (sadly).
2. Were you pizzaface(/pizzahead or whatever his name was) the ghoul?  That ghoul was awesome.
3. I still plan to make a standard character due to how being the overpowered desert ranger 24/7 gets boring, yet just want to get this one in first.  That, and because I doubt I'll be able to snag the character I really want after this one, as well as how it might destroy every bit of credibility I hold.  
It's really bad:
I wanted to make the character I mentioned above in point 3 beforehand, but I remembered how screwed up he was, so I'm going to have to find a way to both implement him and FIX him so that it becomes viable to have him around.  I doubt I'll be able to get him in fully and have to do exactly what you said with having unique story bits attached without any of the gear for that second guy, but I'll try my hardest to get 'em primed before posting an application or doing it in private.
I'd also mention a name, but hey, the garden is famous enough.

Post by Noahleahy on Wed Jun 24, 2015 5:10 pm

After many years of planning and coordinating..it is finally done!

In other words I've finally decided to make a review on this application, time to write!

The Transfer and the items

1: Regarding the transfer, i'm fine with transfer apps and such, it doesn't really matter that his app is a transfer or not, it's still an app for a character.

2: You're asking for a KA-bar, backpack, 44. magnum revolver, Brush Gun, and set of desert ranger armor. I'm gonna start with the KA-bar and on from there.

KA-bar: A lovely combat knife, I think it's fine to apply for and completely fair.

Backpack: The infamous backpack, I don't even need to comment on it, most people just IC it so it's more than fine to apply for.

.44 Magnum revolver [w/ speed loader]: A rather powerful revolver, it's even below the Desert Ranger standard issue revolver so it's not a problem.

Brush Gun: A favored weapon among the desert rangers and nicknamed the Brush Gun due to it's reliability in no other than Brush, fair since it's used by normal Desert Rangers.

Standard D.R outfitting: No Desert Ranger would be complete without it, people may think that it's powerful but everything has a weakness or two.

The Backstory

1. The backstory is large enough for an app of this sort but it was kinda hard to read.

2. HOWEVER the story has a lot of actual roleplay involved, that makes the app so much better cause he spent time and effort to make it by writing AND roleplaying.

3. The story was a rather good read, I loved how you added some details on how you fought things or how you resisted poisons and such.

I'll +support this, I've known Dusk for awhile and he knows best that everyone has a weakness, you just need to know your enemy.

You knowing him should never be a functioning reason to +support, but I'll reiterate the issues with his gear.

The brush gun from Fallout fires .45-70 Gov't - This is one of the most powerful rounds in the Mojave and server setting , making this gun rather ridiculously strong for the stage the server is in.

The magnum he's asking for fires .44 - Practically just one, or two, steps down from .50 AE - Making it, again, one of the most powerful rounds in the Mojave and server setting.

The backpack I don't care about, same for the knife.

The armor is a serious problem because it's a duster coat filled with bulletproof plating thrown over an already-bulletproof set of armor - Did I mention it's 'bulletproof'? - Far too powerful for a character at this stage in the server.

The gear is too overpowered, unnecessary, and generally just an obvious way for the guy to get an upper hand against ANY other character. Seriously, this app needs to be denied.

You don't need that gear.
Implying you need gear to make your character 'work' is fucking ludicrous.
Get over yourself. The server just began and you don't need script items like that to put you so far above everyone else that you can play god.

If you're a true and legitimate roleplayer, all you should want is your character, not the script items they possess.

If you can't accept having the character but not the gear, you quite frankly don't belong on this server.

Me knowing him isn't the sole reason for my +support, thats why I had written about the equipment and the backstory.

-You are right, the Brush gun does fire rather powerful rounds, but these rounds are extremely rare and expensive to purchase.

-The .44? it's the same answer, it's rounds are rather powerful, yet they're still very rare and expensive.

Note: Dusk also sacrificed his starting ammunition for these weapons, rendering them mostly useless for the time being, especially since both of the rounds are rare and expensive, you get it.

-The armor is Ceramic plating over a Type 3 Kevlar vest, ceramic plating can take a shot, then the vest can take a shot or so, depending on the round. It's not really bulletproof at all, toilets are made out of the same material that they use in ceramic plating. The reason why I don't like using the term bulletproof vests is cause kevlar vests can only take so many shots depending on rounds and people will just shoot the shit out of someone else anyways.

I don't really find it to be an upper hand to ANY kind of character, I mean I have had a character clad in power armor and I already know several ways people could of taken him down with ease.

Sorry that I didn't make these details clear in my full review.
