On a fateful night, Hamato Yoshi-- martial artist and former Foot Clan affiliate-- discovered four abandoned infants on the steps of his dojo in New York City. Their origins and parent's whereabouts unknown, the old man adopted them as a surrogate father. Under the watchful eyes of the sensei, the brothers were disciplined in the shadowy art of guerrilla combat known as "Ninjutsu," wanting them to learn self-defense and the virtue of controlling oneself. But more importantly, the wise master did not want his sons to repeat the same mistakes he committed many, many moons ago. They were mistakes that formed mortal enemies, and forced him to escape his homeland, Japan.
Now teenagers, the Hamato brothers each lead lives of the average variety, attending the predominantly Japanese-American public school, Geki High , in Little Osaka. Hamato Leonardo-- the responsible; Hamato Donatello-- the keen; Hamato Raphael-- the valiant; Hamato Michelangelo-- the kind. However, that all changes, when they stumble upon a genetic-altering substance. Well, you know where we go from here.
This Rpg is open to anyone interested in joining. All four turtles have already been taken, but feel free to join as anyone else. This is a Vice revision of the TMNT mythology, so if you want to roleplay as an original character from TMNT, go ahead. Or, if you like, you can create your own custom character. Just make sure to leave a summary of your character on the Ooc thread, so we'll know who you are. And make sure it stays relevant to the story. Thank you :)

Regular Rpg Rules Apply
I designed this Rpg to be casual and user-friendly. One or two paragraphs per post is encouraged. But if you want to go all "essay" on us, by all means, go for it :P There are no real pre-planned scenarios in this story, except for the turtle mutation. All in all, I want this thing to move along naturally. However, plot hooks are encouraged to be formed by players. That's it. Have fun.
