WHAT'S RPG?

Role Playing Game, at least in a Forum version, is a game in which you use your imagination and a character sheet to tell and play your part in stories, either devised by you or by another player. It comes from the Pen and Paper RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons. In the forum we played on a joint Universe we call Viceverse, that is basically like our world but adding every trope, stereotype or genre that the players use for their characters. Its Anime Styled, so the characters are more akin to Anime Heroes or Villains than Western Super Hero, but there are exceptions. We play through text, no dice, no points, just pure narrative, there is a tight set of rules to avoid any injust advantage for any player.

Main Blog

Welcome to the first edition of Animevice RPG Weekly News! I’m Kuma_from_Argentina, I have been an RP player here for 3 years and member of the 2 Class of the Hall of Fame. These blogs will serve to showcase the talents of our resident writers and invite more to join up as players. Let’s start today with a kick rundown of the World of the Vice or Viceverse, the shared universe by all the players to fight, live and have adventures on.

The Current Viceverse is the Third one, after two different reboots. Most of the characters are what you could call street-level, or at least started that way and through a year of threads, fights and character development some got stronger. One of the main concepts in this incarnation is the Hidden World, what is the Hidden World? Is a term to classify all super or inhuman events and individuals in the world, like Yokai, Demons, Angels, Aliens, Martial Artist with Ki, Mages, etc.

There are some groups handled by players that serve as the cushion between the Human World and the Hidden World, like FABLE operating in USA, MI13 operates in UK and the JHWAB based on Japan. There are also organizations like the BHA that serve as another focus points for player that want to serve as bounty hunters. We also have a Magic School and a Martial Arts School to cater to every taste. Yet these organizations are optional and you can have your own wandering warrior, mage, gunslinger, etc, running around and causing mayhem. You can also create your own groups with their own specific goal and theme.

We have a small yet tight community of players that are constantly connected and improving the overall experience of the forums, as I write this we are working on a new achievement system for the threads. We have several threads open filled with awesome writers and awesome characters, and surely more to come. All you need to know is that with every passing month our canon grows stronger and more organized, allowing new players to get into the action quite easily, we indexed all the threads that are part of the canon here, and we are organizing all the information of current events here.

Just swing by to check out the threads and stay if you ever wanted to write your own anime styled character, with amazing powers and even more amazing stories to tell. From this week onwards, every Sunday I’ll post a new edition of this blog, with all the news and all the info you need to do, we will include character and writer features so you can know the characters of the world and those who handle them. Any doubts you can PM me or ask your question in the comments below!

Height: 6' 5''

Origin

 Orphan at young age, Batsu was raised in a secluded Dojo (see img 1) he was trained in the way of the sword, as the others orphans and disciples that lived there. He wasnt the best, or the worse, his only field of specialty was the brute force, even in his young age he could do featsof strenght that were even more awesome that the ones his sensei made.  
 Even so, he wasnt the best in techniques or speed, so his overwhelming strenght was much mis-used or not focused enough when he attacked. Even more he always tried to control it, but he always went from restraining too much, to using his full strenght, that destroyed a lot of training shinai. 
 If he wasnt the most advanced of the class he was the one who represented the ideal swordsman, a honarable and gentle warrior who fighted not only for winning or power, he fighted for the sake of learning and improving his skills, so he could not only control his strenght but to enforce in the worlds his ideals of honor and loyalty with his sword.

     Img 1: Batsu's Monastery
     Img 1: Batsu's Monastery
When he reached his late teenager years, he started to feel more and more uncomfortable in the monastery, his strengt was so inmense and he lacked so much control that he was scared of hurting someone. He decided to travel throught the realms that were near his monastery to search for a cure. 
 He travelled for two years,  and worked as a bodyguard and served as mercenary in some battles of the feudal lords of his country, but he didnt finded a way to control his curse (he thought of it as a curse), but when  he was about to quit his journey he found a old man called Gohei, he was a blacksmith, and his whole life he searched for someone capable of wielding a sword he made, he called it Kyotasen (Giant Edge). 
 At first Batsu laughed at the name of the sword (it wasnt so big) and the ridiculous way the old man was carrying it, the sword was resting alone in a cart pulled by two horses, and the hold man walked along the cart carrying his tools in a backpack. But when Batsu tried to lift the sword up, he felt something he didnt expected to feel, the sword was heavy, he was shocked, since he was a kid anything he tried to lift seemed light as feather, he even had accidentally swinged a shinai so hard that slipped from his hands a flied over 1 km. 
 He lifted Kyotasen with one hand but with a lot of effort, and Gohei was even more shocked than him, hundred of warriors tried to lift the sword, but the only that could do it (and with one hand) was Batsu. Suddenly he begun to cry, seeing his wish fullfilled, finally finding someone that could lift his best work. 
 The sword was heavy, but Batsu lifted it, he knew that this sword was meant for him, so he wanted to know more about it. He asked Gohei, who was crying in joy of seeing his dream come true, Gohei washed his face and started talking about the Sword. -When I was younger I worked as weaponsmith of a powerful warlord. He always wanted me to create a sword that was only meant for him, a unique sword he said. My attempts were futile, each of my creations were rejected without even testing and he throwed them to the fire-.He cleared his throat and continued.  
- One night all the people in his camp saw a star fall of from heavens and crash near. We rushed towards it, only to find a giant lump of charred metal resting in the crater, the Warlord was amazed, and he told me to create a sword with the core of that Star. My helpers brought the lump of metal to my workshop, they thought it was too light to use it for a sword, but I was compelled by my honor to fullfill the wishes of my lord-. He stood up and moved towards Batsu while he drawed with his finger a circle around the lower half of the blade, showing the shield of a Feudal Lord. 
 He sitted again and continued, - Like my helpers said the metal of the star was too light, so I mixed it with Iron, then it started to be easier to work on it. I Finally finished the blade, I was in such a hurry that I finished of uniting the sword and the handle even before it cooled. The sword was finished, and I was instructed to not even sharpen it, becouse my Lord wanted to do it himself-. 
- The Warlord was a strong man, but surpisingly he couldnt lift the sword. He tried with both of his hands, but he couldnt. So he taked this a insult, and exiled me until I found someone capable of lifting the blade-. 
 
After the story, they went to his all hometown and Batsu showed the proof of Gohei task being completed, they splitted ways, and now Batsu roams throught the land with his newfound sword to follow his principles and protect the innocent.   
 
He now enjoys fighting and not worried anymore about controlling his strenght he re-started his training by lifting gigantic boulders or swinging tree to enhance not only his strenght, but his control of it 
 
Batsu is  very loyal if you are his friend and if you need help he will run to help you, but if you backstab him, he wont ever forgive you.  

Dont mess with his food, he gets very pissed...

Once he sets his mind in something he will fight until death and even beyond for that...  

 Slasher Smile

 Not truly a power or a ability, take it as an indicator that Batsu is not only enjoying the fight, but he also is going all-out on your ass...

Equipment

  

 Kyotasen

 The sword forged by Gohei, it weights 5 tons, and Batsu is the only one that could wield it, the sword isnt sharp, but just the weight of it falling from one meter could give serious injuries to a normal human, Batsu only uses it in special ocassions, while most of the time he uses his Katana "Nanashi" 
 

 Chouin Yori

 Gained after serving in one war between two lords,  is a versatile and middle weight armor, protects his vital spots but doesnt hinders his movement. After Meeting with Gohei he covered it by a extra plating made of the same alloy of his sword to increase its weight.

He wont refuse a challenge for a duel.
