May the odds be ever in your favor!

Welcome to the 57th Hunger Games!

If you are unfamiliar with the Hunger Games, I strongly recomend visiting this site (http://thehungergames.wikia.com/wiki/The_Games)and read up on it a little bit. (:

I suggest going to the link and read up more on the Hunger Games if you do not know what it is. If you do you can just skip this little part and go to “Plot".

A Little background on The Hunger Games if you are brand new:

There are 12 districts; and 2 tributes from each district go to the Hunger Games
The Hunger Games isn't a game but more of a fight to the death in a private enclosed arena. Last one alive, wins.
Each district will have mentors. Mentors are winners from previous Hunger Games. They are your life line in the Arena. They direct your flow of sponsor's gifts to you.
Sponsors are people who pay money to help support you in the games. If they feel you have a chance to win, or they want to help you, they will donate a certain amount of money the certain district. From there the mentor will purchase the needed item and send it to the tribute in need.
The Hunger Games is more than just a killing game. It will broadcasted live to all of Panem for everybody to watch. It is entertainment for the people in the capitol and they treat it as something great.
The following happens before the actual games begin. (I will go deeper on this further down.): The Repaing, Opening cermonies, training, training scores, interviews, and then you get placed in the arena.
For the reaping: A district escort will draw the names randomly in the giant crystal ball. Once a name is called they will ask for any volenteers. *Note that districts 1, 2, and 4 are "careers" and will most likely volenteer for the games.
Careers are well-fed and trained all their life to compete in the games. They are most likely to volenteer to go into the arena. They usually band together in the begining of the Games and work as a team to weed out the weak ones before actually compete against each other.
Mutattions are genetically altered animals to make them more dangerous. They will appear throughout the games and often used. The short hand reference for muttations is “mutts”.
Training scores range from 1-12. 1 being awful and 12 being great.



Plot:
The feeling of dread looms in the air in some households. In other households the feeling of pride and excitement dwells. Today is like no other day in the year. Today is reaping day. You go on with your daily activities before getting ready for the reaping. You slowly make your way over to the roped off area with a number on it. The number of the age group you’re in. You slide your way through the crowd of kids. Making eye contact with each sad and sullen eyes. You dully listen to the Mayor speak about the dark days before the district escort comes up to the podium. Her hand dips into the giant crystal ball with your name carefully written on it, along with the hundred other kids in the roped off area. Her hand clings onto a tiny slip of paper before being pulled out. She taps on the microphone to check if it’s working before carefully reading off the name. As the name escapes her lips your heart stops. It’s [your name or a friend/family’s name. Or if you’re a career then it’s some random person’s name and you volunteer anyway.]. This is the beginning of your story from entering the arena to leaving it, dead or alive.

You slowly make your way up to the stage before standinf before your district proudly. The escort reaches her hand in the crystal ball for other gender. This person would be your district partner. She pulls out a clean white slip of paper and begins to read off the name. You look into the crowd and could tell who the person is immediately. By the shocking gasps and the people moving out of the way. The person makes their way to the stage and stands next to you, equally nervous. You both exchange a quick glance before the Anthem Plays and you're rushed out of the scene. Now is the time to say your good-byes to your loved ones. It's like getting your heart ripped out as they are torn away from you. They helplessly watch at home while you are thrown in an arena to kill, or be killed. You haven't given up on hope yet. If you’re going to die, you’re going to die fighting. You haven't accepted death and you will try your best to win it all. To return home to the fortune, the fame, and most importantly, your family.

This RPG:
Will mirror the books as closely as possible. Once the RPG starts it will start like this. We will be going by sections rather than chapters. How this will happen:

First we will begin (after the RPG offically starts) with your character getting ready for reaping. Then somehow your character ends up being a tribute. Say your good-byes and etc.

Once thats done, move on to the pre-Hunger Games opening ceremony. You will be transported to the Capitol where you reside in the training center until the Hunger Games begin. You then meet your prep crew and prepare for opening ceremonies where all 12 districts parade around the Capitol in chariots and costumes representing their district. After that you spend the next 3 days in the training center, getting ready for the actual games. On the 3rd day you each meet with the Game makers and privately perform your talents to them. From there they give you a training score that will be broadcasted. This is for the opponents and any sponsors to get a feel on how good you are. For this portion you will post whatever you present to the Game makers, and me and other co-GM's will give you a score. DONTover power yourself. I don't want everybody to be receiving an 11 or a high score. Be reasonable, this score doesn’t affect how you play in the games at all.

Right after that will be your interview. This post will be smaller with a quick back and forth banter with Caeser Flickerman (http://thehungergames.wikia.com/wiki/Caeser_Flickerman). After that, the games will begin.

From there I don’t want a blood bath at Corncorpia. (If we have any NPC's then most will perish at the blood bath. If we have 24 tributes who are RPGers then there will be no blood bath.) The games start and then you run in and grab a colored backpack. You determine the color and run off. After evrybody has posted me and the other co-GM's will disclose what was inside that specific backpack, which was pre-determined.

Thats all you need to know for now, just to get a feel of the RPG.

We will all decide on how the killings will work. So its fair and there will be no complaints.

Where are you in this RPG?
You play the role of the unlucky soul who is entered into the Hunger Games. You will play as your own character or 2 characters. Certain districts might have certain talents from living in their district. A few examples would be: District 4, fishing. Naturally they would be better swimmers and fishers. District 11, agriculture. They would know more about plants or edible foods. The Hunger games takes place FAR into the future. But do not expect to find any guns or high tech weapons in the arena. Everything will be as basic as a sling shot to a sword. Sponsors might buy you some high tech things that you need like certain lab made medicines but no weapons thats more high tech than what you naturally find in the arena.

The Tributes:You [can] play as 2 tributes, one boy, and one girl from one district. The tributes from districts 1, 2, and 4 typically are better fed and prepared for the games. You can have your character volunteer to go to the games. Districts 1, 2, and 4 also tend to team up during the games until the opponents thin out. They are the most likely to win, due to them being prepared. For those districts please mention if you’re a career or not as well. The districts are as follows:

District 1; Luxury Goods
District 2; Stone mining and nuclear bombs
District 3; Electronics and technology
District 4; Fishing
District 5; Furnishing and Housing
District 6; Medicine
District 7; Timber and paper
District 8; Cloth and clothing
District 9; Metal Work
District 10; Livestock
District 11; Agriculture
District 12; Coal Mining

Sign Ups:

*You can play as two characters of the same district if you want. Or be one character of the district and have another RPer to take the place of your district partner, if it comes to that. Any untaken characters from a district become a NPC who I will kill off more easily than players. If you have a second character their SU doesn’t have to be as long as your first one.
*Two Characters from 1 District means two sign ups. You don’t have to have 2 characters.

Name: First and last.

Gender:

Age: 12 – 18 only.

District: (What district do you hail from?)

Appearance: (What does your character look like? Go into detail. Clothing, hair, eyes, etc. I want 1 paragraph since I understand how hard appearance can be as there isn’t much. 2 Paragraphs is recommended. Once in arena your clothes will be determined for you.)

Personality: (What if your character like? Two paragraphs, but I’ll be lenient if I feel you explained enough or so.)

History: (Now here is where I expect a lot. Dwell into your history. How was life in your district? Family? Friends? Any special skills you developed as you grew older? I want to know everything with your character. 2 full, beefy paragraphs.

*If you are a career tribute (districts 1, 2, and 4) then tell us how you trained and stuff like that.)

Weapon: Are you capable with using a weapon? If not, leave blank.

District Token: (This is your token you are allowed to bring into the arena with you. It must not be able to be used as a weapon and is your last piece of home while your in the games. It can range from a button to a necklace. Something small. Think hard about it, as it will represent yourself and your district.)

Strategy: How do you plan to win the games? You dont have to answer if you don't know yet.

Rules:
1) All forum rules.
2) This is rated PG-14. Minor cursing is allowed.
3) If there is romance then keep it to a minimum. (By minimum I mean you only have a minor crush. Nothing else. Make note of this rule.)
4) Don’t over power yourself. If I see this, I will give you a warning and talk to you about it. If I see it again then a GM will somehow kill you out of the games.
Over Powering consist of:
-Magically finding a needed weapon
-You didn't die when that should've killed you.
-Etc. If I see overpowering I will VM you as a warning. I will be the judge of it.
5) Respect anybody in this RPG. No fights unless its IC and relevant to the story.
6) As GM, I have final word and say in anything. No arguing. Other GM’s also have a say in things.
7) As of right now, Martin_ and I are co-GMs. Any questions PM or VM us. Hopefully I’ll open a discussion thread.

In-Character Rules:
1) Once you died, you either become a sponsor, or mentor of your district. You can only become a sponsor if both of your tributes are dead so no favoring.
2) No killing within the first 2 posts. Once the gong rings out you don’t kill anybody. No blood bath.
3) Once the games begin you are expected to go to the Cornucopia and retrieve a colored backpack. You decide on the color (but once the color is taken it’s off the list and another character can’t take it.) Us GM’s already decided what’s in every colored bag, and you test your luck with taking one. Once everybody retrieved their bag we will reveal the contents for every color. Once again, it is pre-decided. Some may be luckier with what they get; others not so much.
4) At the top of your post please tittle this:
Format: District #, Gender, Name, Area of Arena you’re in.
Example: District 4, Male, Bobby Joe, Area C
If you have 2 characters then do the same when you switch to the other characters. Keep both characters within the same post, even if they aren’t near each other at the time.
5) If you encounter another district you have options.
a. Run: You attempt to escape.
b. Fight: You stay and fight. It’s turn based. 2 paragraphs per post when you’re in a fight. Explain how the fight is going, how you react, what you do. You can maim them but don’t direct kill them yet. Us players will have a vote on how the killings take place.
c. Team-up: You ask the other district if you want to team up. If yes, then there you go. If no: see options a. and b.
6) Explain how you’re surviving with your limited supplies. They will eventually run out if it’s food or water. You can get natural water from streams or ponds. Food you’d have to hunt or find berries or roots or plants.

My Sign-Up:

Name: Dekk Torey

Gender: Male

Age: 16

District: District 7

Appearance: Dekk isn’t tall, but isn’t short. His height is around 5"7. He is thin but not skinny, and slightly built. He wears contacts on his green eyes. His hair is light brown and styled to be spikey in the front, and rest of his short hair is plain, strait, and untouched in the back. His teeth are strait now, as he got his braces taken off 3 years ago. His skin is tan from working outside, making it a golden brown. He has a small scar on the back of his ear from an accident when he was younger.
Dekk wears a thin light blue t-shirt and baggy dark black jeans. Dekk has a necklace with a symbol of a light blue humming bird on it. On his wrist is an alarm watch that matches his shirt. He has white shoes that’s dirty from being outside too often.

Personality: Dekk is really friendly. He tends to over think things a little bit, and that can be good sometimes. He’s VERY protective of his friends, and family. Dekk's curiosity usually gets the best of him. He isn’t afraid to ask questions, and can be nosey at times. He is a helpless gossip, and will talk about anything. Dekk is shy around new people, but fairly confident with meeting others when he is in a group of friends. He tries to be optimistic, but sometimes he can’t. He dwells on mistakes and past experiences that haunt him. He has no trouble sleeping, and is usually tired. He dreams about whatever he feels at the moment before bed or recalling past events, sometimes dreaming for the future. He is quirky and ignorant. He does not wish to know the truth of something’s because he thinks ignorance is happiness.

Dekk really enjoys company, and hates being alone. He is scared of things and let things get to his mind. He wants protection and comfort, and even the protection of people around him. When it’s quiet his mind never stops thinking, he can never sit still. He tends to be anxious and worrisome. He enjoys going outside to the fresh air, as he thinks it freshens his mind, and it’s a nice feeling to have.

History: Dekk is an only child and he’s glad for that. He would hate to see any of them being sent to the Hunger Games. His dad died when he was 12 leaving him and his mom alone. Dekk’s mother quickly re-married a year later to a lumber worker. Dekk hated his new dad as he was rude and a terrible human being all together. Dekk often would just leave the house because he had enough of him. Dekk’s family never really struggled with money or food after she married the new dad. Dekk’s mother worked in the paper factory so she brought in income. His step-dad was a lumber worker and often forced Dekk to come along with him to work to help out. Even though Dekk was still too young to actually work with the lumber his step-dad brought him anyways. Dekk despised going and thought it was a waste of time. He’d often break off from the other workers to play in the forest. He had experience with throwing knives before. After his dad died his mom and he struggled for a while with food and money. Dekk would slip into the forest and kill rabbits or squirrels throwing knives at them.

Even after his family became stable again with food and money he still went into the woods and practiced. Often times he’d catch a mysterious animal leaping from the trees. Of course it was too fast for him to bring down with throwing knives. Dekk is still at a young age being brought into the lumber forest. It quickly shows how useless he is considering he is very incompetent with an axe. Which is ironic because he is from District 7. He hides his talent with throwing knives from the others as its illegal. Dekk’s friend’s sister was entered in the 50th hunger games. That was when he was aware of how somebody so close from home could be ripped away from their family’s and thrown in an arena to die. He watched intently with every second of it until she finally perished by inhaling a flower’s poison. Dekk grew up with a secret hatred of the games. Of course, it could never being publicly spoken.

Weapon: Throwing knives.

District Token: His necklace

Strategy: Stay alive.

Name: Isabel “Izzy” Payne

Gender: Female

Age: 12

District: 7

Appearance: Isabel is small and scrawny. She is 4’10 in height. Her strait blonde hair falls a little past her shoulders. She normally doesn’t let that happen though as she puts them up in a ponytail or pig tails. She has big round blue eyes that always wander and spark with her curiosity. Most of the time you will catch her wearing her light blue school uniform. The light blue uniform consisted of a white t-shirt and a thin blue jacket over. She had a light blue skirt underneath. The skirt is seperated from the white t-shirt at the middle by a big ribbon exploding into a bow behind her. She wears running shoes everywhere. Her skin is a pale olive color since she doesn’t spend too much time in the sun. Her teeth are straight and white. She looks like pure innocence and usually walks with a little skip.

Personality: Isabel looks all sweet and innocent but she personifies the saying "looks can be deceiving." She is very mischievous and sly. She is always on the hunt for an adventure and gets in trouble often. As a trouble maker she is always on the run and just itches to do something bad. She has an attitude and is manipulative. Depending on whom she is talking to or what the situation is she could be a nice angel or a living devil. She finds a way to get what she wants but is never satisfied. Some believe the reason for her behavior is because she is orphaned. She is kind to younger children and nasty to her elders. Normally shy when meeting new people she is quiet. She isn't one to talk often.

Isabel prefers to be called "Izzy" and hates being called Isabel. She has been described as a loner with little to no friends. The only person she truely cares about is her older brother who protects her. She is a tough individual and rarely will be seen crying. She grown up with nobody but her brother and this hardened her at her young age. She is careless and reckless. She has a distinct talent for screaming which the orphan care takers often hear. They say her lungs are powerful, which they are.

History: Isabel's parents died when she was 2. They were in an old library in District 7 when it caught on fire, burning it down along with them. She was too young to understand and her brother hid her from the truth even though he was young as well. They ended up being put in an orphanage for most of their lives. Isabel was a wild child and often couldn't handle it. She'd often run away from the orphanage to the forest where the workers of District 7 worked. She'd always come back to the orphanage no matter how many times she attempted to escape and run away. As she got older she continued to journey deeper into the forests of District 7. She was allowed in because she always managed to slip past the worker's gate. Due to her small frame and nature she'd always scramble up the trees and sit up there. Occasionally she'd try her luck of swinging from tree to tree. She got better and better at tree jumping eventually making a game out of it. She was small and it was perfect as she soared from tree to tree. Whenever the first sight of anything potentially dangerous happened she immediately headed back to the orphanage.

She grew up watching the hunger games with hatred. She hated watching the the teenagers dying for enjoyment. When she was 10 her only friend in the orphanage was 14 and had been unfortunately entered in the 55th Hunger Games. She had to sit back defencless watching him die. She was at school when the news was announced over the speaker that the boy tribute from District 7 died placing 8th out of 24. She was mortified and hated the Capitol for murdering her friend. Since she was at an orphanage she never had any issues with money or food. She was fed but not well-fed. She'd often steal some pastries from the bakery anyways. After the incident with her friend dying in the Hunger Games she decided not to get close to anybody in fear they would just be thrown into that arena. She doesn't look back at her life as sad, just shocking. She ignores anything bad that happens in her life. Her brother and she don't have much money but they still try to get nice things for each other. When she turned 9 he made her a light blue bracelet that went with her dress. When she got called to be a Tribute in the 57th hunger games she began to think of a strategy. She remembered in the 50th hunger games a tribute used blow darts dipped in poison. She decided this was the way to go since she had the lungs to blow the darts for longer distances.

Weapon: Blow Darts

District Token: The light blue bracelet

Strategy: Find trees and hide out. Make a blow dart or find one to use. Find some lethal poisons to help out.

Name: Rosalie "Rosa" Reed

Gender: Female

Age: 18

District: District 1

Appearance: Rosalie is statuesque and slim, though not skinny or anorexic, standing at about 5'9". Sh has long, strawberry blond waves reaching down to her waist, smooth, alabaster skin and bright emerald-green eyes framed with long lashes. Both her ears have two piercings each and her navel also bears a piercing. Her long-legged figure is slim and a bit curvy, with a generous bust and a flat stomach.

Rosalie likes wearing revealing, black clothes, and dislikes pink, frills and flowers with a passion. Her usual outfit is a fitted, short-sleeved black leather cropped bolero jacket over a tight, cropped, low-cut, black lace zip-up corset, a black leather miniskirt, fingerless black gloves, and black, heeled, lace-up boots. She wears four diamond studs in her ears, one in each pierced hole and a choker with a single diamond hanging from it. She usually wears dark eye shadow and kohl around her eyes and has a tattoo of a violet butterfly on her hip.

Personality: Rosalie is a proud and arrogant individual with an evident superiority complex. She does not hesitate to make snide remarks about others if it helps in boosting her ever-growing pride. Extremely vain, she cares about her looks and what she wears, often to a fault. After the death of her boyfriend, Pierce, she became a well-known player who enjoys having her way with teenage boys and even adult men. She knows how to use her looks and natural allure to her advantage, whether in fighting or in just plain flirting. She is blunt and straightforward, even rude at times to most people she does not know, never hesitating to give her opinion on anything and everything, even if it may hurt some and get her into trouble with others.

Rosalie finds it very hard to trust most people, especially girls, she considers "not on her level", usually looking down on them. She keeps herself cold and aloof towards said people, making it hard for her to warm up towards them, but if she does warm up, though it's extremely rare, is compassionate and friendly. She is one who treasures the bonds she has with her friends and those she considers close. She prefers to be called "Rosa" among those who know her well.

History: Rosalie Reed was born to a wealthy family in District 1. Her father owned one of the luxury factories in he District, making Rosalie's life very comfortable compared to most people from other districts. For the first eight years of her life, Rosalie had it good. Everything was served to her on a silver platter, she did not have to do anything by herself, her parents loved her, and the Hunger Games was the least of her concern. This all changed however, on her eighth birthday. Taken against her will to train as a "Career Tribute", Rosalie was forced, against her will and her parents' will, to become a fighter destined to volunteer for the Hunger Games before she turned nineteen. Upon entering District 1's training grounds, Rosalie was forced to choose a weapon from several laid out in front of her for her to specialize in. In defiance to the guns or crossbows she was suggested to take, Rosalie pointed to the scythe, one of the biggest weapons laid out, mentioning that shooting from afar was for wimps.

Though she did not have to stay full-time in the training grounds and was allowed to go home after every 8-hour training session, Rosalie disliked her environment, claiming it to be inferior to her mansion. She however, made friends with some of those training, one of them who would eventually become her boyfriend: a boy one year older than her named Pierce. Every time she was at the arena, their trainers would always show footage of the past Hunger Games, making examples of all winners from District 1. This did not change Rosalie's attitude towards the games. All she wanted was a good life, taking over ownership of her father's factory later on and living her life the way she wanted, and to her, the Hunger Games was just about to ruin her plans. She, however, went on with her training, still retaining some hope that none of the trainers would approach her anytime or that if ever she was chosen, she had the chance to win, and soon became adept with her scythe, having grown to a height considered tall for a young woman. When she was sixteen, the then-seventeen-year-old Pierce was instructed by the head trainer to volunteer himself as the male Tribute for the upcoming Hunger Games. This was the first time the normally brave Rosalie refused to watch the Hunger Games, fearing for her boyfriend of eighteen months. He died close to the end, being the third-to-the-last one killed. Though initially grief-stricken, Rosalie only trained harder after the incident. Shortly after she turned eighteen, the same head trainer approached, telling her to volunteer as the female tribute for the upcoming 57th Hunger Games. She reluctantly accepted after weighing between Pierce's death and what could possibly happen to her should she decline. At the Reaping, doing as she was forced to do, she volunteered herself as the Female Tribute before the female's name was even chosen.

Weapon: Scythe

District Token: A diamond navel stud in the shape of a skull that Pierce gave her after a year into their relationship. She wears this on her navel and never takes it off in memory of Pierce.

Strategy: Undecided

Name: Viktorija Pacunaitė (pronounced "Victoria")

Gender: Female.

Age: 16

District: Six.

Appearance: Although her district's industry might dictate a soft and empathetic personality, Viktorija is none of that, and her appearance shows it. Her hair was once-upon-a-time a light chesnutty red, waterfalling down her back, until she chopped it short and dyed it a frosty orange. Then, having nothing else around the house, the whole district really, she spiked her locks using some medicinal ingredients; her hair was really the only thing she could change after all. Viktorija's face is broad, high cheekbones, low forehead, almost with a heart-shaped dip on her hairline, with a peachy complexion. Her nose is small but snub: she wishes it were pointier, as then it might have more of an effect with her mine-cut forest-green eyes that dully shine instead of sparkle, and her lips, which are short and mildly bee-stung, painted over with a darker tone to conceal the reddish-peach colour they were originally. Black eyeliner (made from some sort of forest herb, she would always note distastefully) and a soft gray are brushed over her lids every morning, and black mascara (it "makes more of a statement") touch up her short lashes.

Every morning, Viktorija's routine doesn't consist of much: get out of her (sack) bed, throw on something, then run downstairs. As part of this plan, she doesn't usually pay attention to what she's wearing. Most of her wardrobe consists of things one might consider grunge-steampunk: pinstripe belly-exposed-length vests, ripped miniskirts, belts, gear jewelry, loose white blouses, ragged corsets, even a pair of goggles she wears everywhere she can. Usually she'll end up donning a mix of white and bronze, like wearing a shirt with off-the-shoulder puff sleeves underneath a short vest, baring her midriff, a ripped knee-length skirt with random bronze gears hanging from the belt. Her arms are decorated with belts, and her ears with, in fact, eyepiece earrings. It's a unique look. Viktorija doesn't think anyone else in Panem has it. Luckily, her stature, which is slightly shorter than the average girl at her age (and not too well filled-out) can pull it off.

Personality: Seeming to have a mix of hot and cold running through her veins, Viktorija can lapse into frosty silences or heated arguments at the flick of a wrist. As a result, she doesn't garner too many friends, but that's okay, as she doesn't really know how to treat them well anyway. She understands fairness and equality, but she's never socially sure of herself and prefers to keep her pains hidden and not share herself - she's never trusted anyone before, really. Keeping up an indifferent air around her no matter what happens, Viktorija seems rarely fazed, and if she is, never lets it show through her facade.

Being reserved and totally independant can be helpful, however. Viktorija never liked being held down in an agreement. She doesn't have to share what she knows, or who she's allied with, and can easily double, triple, or quadruple-cross someone with seemingly little regard for any parties involved, including her. She's smart: a natural at strategizing, and, unbeknownst to probably anyone, actually paid attention when working at home. She knows lots about medicines and can probably find some in the arena.

Ignoring all these terrible qualities, Viktorija is witty, snarky (oh that's still bad isn't it), and surprisingly hospitable when asked nicely. She'll cooperate with you if she decides your worth her time, although you'll never know, and although somewhat brash, she actually thinks through most of her decisions, going over many different scenarios. The truth is, although she doesn't seem to care, it's all tearing at her insides. She might have some sort of breakdown in the arena at all the hurt going around her. Why the turmoil? Look down...

History: Explaining the uncommon-sounding name, before North America collapsed into rubble, Tori's family line descends from Lithuanians (they also have different surnames depending on whether you're married, a man or woman). Her family lines has a history of individuals like Viktorija, and how they ever married is beyond me. Luckily though, they seem to warm up when married, so everything's good and golden. What isn't so rainbow-happy is really, their childhoods. A long while ago, Viktorija was in fact a docile girl, who was eternally happy and probably eternally naive. She was mild-mannered and compassionate, and generally trusting of everyone. She lived with her two siblings, Daina and Paulius, and her only childhood friend, Kristjana, the one person allowed to call her "Tori". Their friendship was almost sisterly, the comfortable sort where the other person doesn't mind sleeping in the same bed as you or being in the same room while changing. When Viktorija was twelve, she realized that, however, instead of crushing on boys like Kristy was always going on about, thoughts about her same sex were invading her thoughts all the time, and, more often than not, it would be her own best friend there.

After she came to terms with her sexual orientation (it took several years), Viktorija had already known for a long time homosexuality wasn't accepted in Panem: she had seen what had happened to a gay couple in District Five, in fact, it was broadcasted on live television when she was ten. Knowing there wasn't a single way to be accepted that was within her reach, Viktorija became reserved and the way she is now, changing herself to accept whatever fate had to throw at her. Instead of taking walks around town, she would throw herself into whatever she was learning, and became rather knowledgable of random things. Viktorija also fine-tuned many of her fine motor skills, and prided herself on being probably better at small metalwork than even those in District Nine, as well as stitching (more destroying) her own clothing. Her family, also, was slowly going bankrupt, as her brother went to work in the Capitol and Viktorija wasn't exactly helping in the business.

When she had just turned sixteen, however, she saw a way out of her chaotic life. The Games. Viktorija could escape everything she had known and dwelled in, and be lifted out of the fog. If she won, she wouldn't have to deal with poverty or her previous life, and if she died, well, she still didn't have to deal with anything. And although she still retained that nervousness of killing and death, she figured it was a small price to pay for a way out. Nobody in her family knew about this, and she volunteered to go.

Weapon: Not really, but she doesn't usually need one: she's well-versed in medicine and killing others with

District Token: Her goggles, but as the original ornament was too big, she fashioned it into a choker.

Strategy: She doesn't plan to win. Like, might as well if I can, and she's still a little apprehensive about dying, but she won't delay it too much... smarts, if anything.

I loved the Hunger Games series. I cried when Rue died, though. ;.;
Name: Saira Feramine
Gender: Female

Age: 14
District: 11

Appearance: Saira has long, curly dark brown hair and green eyes. She also has short bangs. She dresses simply, a white tank-top and jean shorts are a favorite, as she is usually working in the fields. She uses a pink scarf as a "belt" whenever her shorts have belt loops. She usually has a pink rose pin in her hair, but removes it for the actual Games.

Personality: She is usually shy and quiet, only speaking if spoken to or if she has something intelligent to say. She hates any type of violence, and instead likes to solve things by talking them over. However, if you tick her off, she is a very ferocious fighter, using skill and evasiveness to tire the opponent out, then striking. Though she has a couple aquaintances, there is no one she can actually call her "friend", as no one can get past her outer shell. She instead prefers the company of the animals and other wildlife that are around her garden, and the songs of the mockingjays. She herself has a very melodic voice.

History: Saira was born in District 11 on April 17, and has had a love for plants since she was a newborn, always toddling around and smelling the flowers in her mother's garden. Since then, she has grown up always surrounded by many different plants and knows the uses of each one, and whether or not they are edible.

Saira began her schooling at 5, and has been at the top, or near the top, of her class since. Her vast knowledge will also come in handy during the Games, to calculate the exact angle of which something needs to be thrown, and the angle of what is being thrown at her, so she can dodge. She is shunned because of it, so she's always been on the outside, sitting alone at lunch. The only person who ever really talked to her was (insert male character's name here). When they both were chosen, she was shocked. She hated violence, and she especially didn't want to hurt the only person who tried to be her friend.

Weapon: Pocketknife ("trained" by using it to trim bushes), and a bow and arrow (she learned from her father, who taught her how to as a sport to do in her spare time). Also, her sheer knowledge and skill.

District Token: A braided choker necklace woven from various stems and grasses.

Strategy: Evasiveness, avoiding the fight until necessary, building up strength.

Comments are in bold. I need it to be a bit longer. Take the first 3 SU's for example, they all had an excellent length. Your character is a little too similar to Rue for my liking. It's fine, as I can safely assume most of the District 11 people would be like that. Over-all I like it, but would like it a little bit longer :)

You are pending.

She usually has a pink rose pin in her hair, but removes it for the actual Games.

Go deeper in her appearence. Skin color, teeth, how does she do her hair. Glasses? Contacts?

Out of those options make them sentences. "Her skin is a deep chocolate color." That's a good example of what I mean.

She hates any type of violence, and instead likes to solve things by talking them over.

She instead prefers the company of the animals and other wildlife that are around her garden, and the songs of the mockingjays. She herself has a very melodic voice.

Expand on this just a little bit more.... 3 more sentences and you'll be good. Here's some examples. "She follows the golden rule, treat others how you want to be treated. She prefers to stay out of mischief and trouble. Saira follows a daily schedule and doesn't want to stray from it. Change is hard for her to adapt to. Her whole life revolves around her district as she never seen anything outside the district except the hunger games." --Like that. Try something like that, and don't directly copy what I said. (:

When they both were chosen, she was shocked. She hated violence, and she especially didn't want to hurt the only person who tried to be her friend.

Interesting twist with the male character. Although, you'd have to ask whoever is signing up for the male character if thats OK. If nobody signs up for him, he will just end up a NPC. Anywhom, expand on this. How's your family? If you had any? Are you orphaned? Food and money.... any issues with that growing up? Any older brother and sisters that grew up and then died in one of the past games? Describe life working out in the field and harvest. At age 14 you should have been in the field often now since Rue was. Give me more of your life before you where reapeded. Review my SU, and the other 2 SU's to see good SU's as an example. Think back to your own past for inspiration. How is school life? Why are you such an outcast? Is there a reason in the past that made you shun anybody? Is it because your afraid to see loved ones taken away in the Hunger Games? Did she grow up watching the hunger games? (well everybody did, but how did she react to it?)

Weapon: Pocketknife ("trained" by using it to trim bushes), and a bow and arrow (she learned from her father, who taught her how to as a sport to do in her spare time). Also, her sheer knowledge and skill.

It's a little chiche. Sound's like rue and katniss morphed together. You will most likely end up with a pocketknife in the arena though, as its more common. :)

District Token: A braided choker necklace woven from various stems and grasses.

Name: Jess "Techno" Brisk (I love Brisk Iced Tea!)

Gender: Female

Age: 17 (*Wolf Whistle* XD)

District: District 3

Appearance: Jess is pretty good height for her age, a bit tall. Her height is around 5"9. She is actually pretty skinny, like one of those skinny supermodels (she looks like one too). She wears light blue contacts to see better and because the colors are pretty. Jess' hair is dark brown and curled. It naturally comes like that for her, curled without help. His teeth are just a tiny bit crooked on the front, but as white as pearls. Jess' skin is pale from being holed up, working on experiments (Will be explained later). Jess wears a high cutoff ***-shirt (pink), baggy white jeans, and yellow sneakers.

Jess is very attractive to people. What I mean is that they are attracted to her. She is very beautiful. But, she doesn't care. How do I put this, Jess is more attracted to machinary...yea... The only scratch/scar/mark, or however you say it, is a scar on the palm of her hand. It appeared when she was making something and it literally blew up. The scar doesn't hurt her anymore though, and it gives better grip when mountain climing :D

Personality: Jess is pretty friendly. A bit shy, but friendly. She tends to be a bit overprotected, and that can have mixed results. She was also once thought to be crazy, but people rejected it. Jess isn't that curious of a person, letting mysteries pass by her head, unless of course, there's a machine involved. Jess believes in everyone giving their two cents in a conversations, and she never spreads rumors or gossips about people. Jess is shy around everybody, no matter how long she knew them. She tries to be realistic, but sometimes it sounds like pessimism (Is that a word?). She dwells on mistakes and past experiences because in reality, Jess was lucky to get out of them alive. You don't know how a rogue machine acts. She has trouble sleeping at times, and is never tired. At the rare times she does sleep, she dreams about whatever machinary ideas she has, and sometimes a new one pops in her head. Jess is pretty intelligent too.

But, as we all know, there are two sides to every story. Jess other side is a bit scary. A bit intimidating. Kinda like when Justin Bieber tries to act sexy *Snicker*. Jess' other side, is dark. Of course, she still loves the light colors such as pink and hasn't turned goth, but her personality transforms. She actually turns into the crazy person that has been rumored she was. It is true. She turns into this outgoing person...but that's not always good. Jess is smart no matter what, but in solitude, she's sly, sneaky. Which is why she was able to hide the fact about this flip side from her parents. Another thing about this side is her technological geniusness...if that's a word. A scrap of metal is a supercomputer after she gets through it. A broken remote is a phone (Verizon and LG FTW). But the scariest thing about this side is...her bloodlust.

History: Jess has two older sisters, one 19 and the other 18, and a younger brother who is 14 years old. Her mom should get a life xD. She would do anything for them, because she needs to hold up her nice image. But in reality, she hates their guts. Her mom died in the factory she worked in. It...um...exploded. Jess' dad never got over it. He described her as "Aphrodite on Earth". Jess' family often struggled with food and money, but Jess would just ship away a new invention and get paid, so it's no big deal. But sometimes, her invention is hated and they have to go a while without food. Practice for the Hunger Game, kinda. Jess would often stay in the basement so she can be herself. She had build a pistol and taser out of scrap metal and she practiced using them. The work wonderfully and Jess loved them. Even if you weren't a natural like Jess, who wouldn't like sending 10,000 volts of electricity to a rabbit?

Jess pretty much lived in her basement, and when she wasn't there, the nearby forest was her second home. Of course, there was an electric fence, But if you do not know how to shut one down, you are not from Distric 3. Many times, she would shoot a bullet or throw the taser into the darkness and see what she hit. She would mostly hit nothing. How can you hit something that's not there? Very few animals roam in the forest. Her dad tries to get her to come with him to the factory. She always refused. Jess didn't want to die the same way her mom did. Even with her bloodlust, she shudders at the thought of dieing. Jess hides her gun and taser from people, because she knew quite a bunch of sexist people. Jess' older sister has been in the 55th Hunger Games. She should be 19 years old. Yea...it's that sister. Jess' sister was the first one killed. It happened in the bloodbath in the Cornucopia. At the reaping, Jess was quick to volunteer. This surprised everyone, as this was not a Career district. But Jess did not volunteer to avenge her sister. She did it for the bloodlust.

Weapon: Long Rang-Gun
Short Range-Taser...oh yea. Hater gonna hate

District Token: A ball of scrap metal

Strategy: Use the Capital's traps for herself

He also has a flaw though he goes into states of craziness where he just wants to kill and attack and bring misery and pain to everyone because of hatred he has suffered from his family
History: As a young child vosok was abused and hated by his family so he took off wanting only to bring pain and misery to others he trained to be in the hunger games and to be well equipped with knives and bows but more so the knife. He decided to spend a year in the woods to test himself he came out a viscous murdering man.

I'm good, just thought I would change myself up if you know what I mean.

Name: Alex Morgan

Gender: Male

Age: 15

District: 9

Appearance: He's short for his age at 5'4" and due to his skill at the metalworks, he isn't as thin as some of the other workers. He has developed strong upper body strength from carrying peices of metal all over the workshops. He has his brown hair cut short and a tanned face from dealing with many torches and forges. He has many scars from sharp metal and sparks all over his body.

When working he always wears heavy gloves and goggles which it more protection than more other people in the workshop. When not in the workshop, which is very little, he wears a heavy jacket and jeans, which though old, again better than most other people have. He also wears an old steel watch which is a family hierloom and still works.

Personality: In a word, he's a loner. He hardly ever talks to others and when he does, it mostly because he has to talk to finish the job. He doesn't have any friends and the only person he's close to is his father, Ian. Work at the metalworks is hard and someone is seriously injured every other day but he endures it. He knows he's privlaged compared to the others but he just keeps working, interacting with the others only when needed. His father earns enough money to support both of them while Alex saves up his money. He interested in the world before the districts and the uprising and he just wishes the peacekeepers would stop breathing down thier necks. He's also somewhat of a peacekeeper, the orginal type of peacekeeper. He won't stop to break up a fight between workers amd won't hesitate to use his fists.

History: His mom died from sickness when Alex was young and his father is the only family he has. His father is the foreman of the shop he works at and other than his father getting paid slightly more than the other workers, they still have to do the same dirty work and get 'respected' the same way by the peacekeepers. He was in a school when he was younger. While in school he has heard the history of the districts and the capitol and some of the origens of them, but he's always wondered about the time before. He told the teacher that he wanted to know more and when he did, he was whipped. He has kept his mouth shut ever since. When he was old enough for the reaping, his father took him out of it and put him to work. He never complained seeing as while was only entered once each year, people were reaped with worse odds. Also, being smart in a district where most people rely on brute strength wasn't the best way to do things.

He has never went outside the fence and has no intrest to. He follows the peacekeepers' rules so not to attact attention and so they wouldn't harm him and his father. He and his father agreed that if he was reaped, that his father wouldn't spent all of his saved up money on him. If he would win- and that's a huge if- he would wish to use the rewards to learn the history of the world before the games and the uprisings.

Weapon: Any heavy blunt object he can get his hands on. If not, just use fists.

District Token: His old plain steel watch.

Strategy: Stay away from everyone. Survive as long as he can until the end.

this is all i've got so far...

Appearance: A tall fit man who has long brown silky hair with brown eyes. He has a good tan and has scars on his arms from a abusive dad. He has a small build and wears a necklece with a red rock that is a good luck sign.he also has nimble fingers and small feet.

This is way too short for my standards. Please, review the other Accepted Sign-ups for a good reference on the length I want. You could go deeper on what your character wears, skin color, teeth. Etc.

Personality: He is very protective of friends and very fierce of foes he likes to sneak and spy and is a good climber of trees. He is usaly the quiet one but not dumb very smart
He also has a flaw though he goes into states of craziness where he just wants to kill and attack and bring misery and pain to everyone because of hatred he has suffered from his family

Way too short again. Review other Sign-Ups for reference.

History: As a young child vosok was abused and hated by his family so he took off wanting only to bring pain and misery to others he trained to be in the hunger games and to be well equipped with knives and bows but more so the knife. He decided to spend a year in the woods to test himself he came out a viscous murdering man.

Ok. That whole part starting from "Wanting" to "Machine" was a run-on sentence. And it didnt make sence. I'm sorry. You'd need to expand on this.

Why did he get abused? Any friends? How did he train? What did he do to train? Any siblings? Did he want to be a career? Did he ever see a therapist for his obious pychological problems?

Weapon: knife and bow

District Token: a necklace he found while in the woods a second time he thought of it as a luck charm being he found it and after word he became so much smarter and readier for the hunger games

Run on sentence, and it would've been better if this was in history and then just saying "Necklace" so we'd know.

Also, "readier" would be better as "better prepared." or "More ready."

Strategy: allies that is the only way to win
Sorry Lawnmaster, but for now, you are Denied. Lengthen things up a bit. Learn to write a little better, and then your good! :D

He has developed strong upper body strength from carrying peices of metal all over the workshops. He has his brown hair cut short and a tanned face from dealing with many torches and forges. He has amny scars from sharp metal and sparks all over his body.

You can add a little bit more to this. What does he normally wear? For theese things you can expand on them by saying stuff like "He typically wears simple blue jeans over a big white shirt. He wears thin glasses over his eyes to see better, and walks around in sneakers.

Like that, go ahead and expand a little. (:

Personality: In a word, he's a loner. He hardly ever talks to others and when he does, it mostly because he has to talk to finish the job. He doesn't have any friends and the only person he's close to is his father, Ian. Work at the metalworks is hard and someone is seriously injured every other day but he endures it.

His father earns enough money to support both of them while Alex saves up his money. He interested in the world before the districts and the uprising and he just wishes the peacekeepers would stop breathing down thier necks.
It is barely fine. But fine. I would just love it if you expanded it with 2 or 3 more sentence though.

History: His mom died from sickness when Alex was young and his father is the only family he has. His father is the foreman of the shop he works at and other than his father getting paid slightly more than the other workers, they still have to do the same dirty work and get 'respected' the same way by the peacekeepers. He was in a school when he was younger but when he was old enough for the reaping, his father took him out of it and put him to work. He never complained seeing as while was only entered once each year, people were reaped with worse odds. Also, being smart in a district where most people rely on brute strength wasn't the best way to do things.

Review the other SU's for some inspiration for your SU. This history is good but it could be a little longer, and better. You should mention how he responded to the hunger games, how he watched it and such. You can mention if he ever had any friends in his life before he became a loner. Heck, talk about if your going to try and have an alliance. Dwell deeper to why your father, Ian, is so close to you. You can mention how he always protects you, and yet doesnt. Like so,

"Alex and his father where always close. He always knew how to raise Alex just right. He'd protect him best he could but also strengthen him. Whenever Alex had a problem or issue, he'd make him figure it out himself. This helped Alex tremendously. Since Alex's dad took him out of school he was a little bit slower. But Alex didn't care, he was going to work with metal all his life. He won't need math, and all he needs is basic reading. Alex strays away from others. He doesn't try and get close to anybody and form a relationship. Alex never minded the Hunger games. He felt it was only 24 kids dying each year. If a rebellion happened more would die each year. Even though he was taken our of school Alex still read up on the history, even if it wasn't much. Any book he read always mentioned the dark days and how the Hunger Games was born. It was vague and left him curious and wandering."

Like that. See what I did there?

Weapon: Any heavy blunt object he can get his hands on. If not, just use fists.

District Token: A plain steel watch.

Strategy: Stay away from everyone. Survive as long as he can until the end.

this is all i've got so far...

Dont rush yourself. You can improve this greatly. I've been in a few RPG's with you so I know your a good RPGer so I'm a little lenient on you right now. Just add the necassary things, and you'll be approved. Show me you are willing to take the extra step in this RPG.

Try and capitolize the first letters of names please.

Age: 17
District: district 2
Appearance: A tall fit man who has long brown silky hair with large brown eyes.

He has a medium tan. He has a hollow stomach and hollow cheeks. He has a chiped tooth that often causes pain. He has scars on his arms from a abusive dad.He also has nimble fingers. He has a small slim build and stands about 6 ft 2 inch and wears a necklece with a red rock that is a good luck sign.

Ok that whole thing was just stating things about him. Make it into sentences, RPGs should be like stories.

"He has a medium tan from training outdoors. Even though he is a career district his family never bothered to feed him properly, resulting in a empty stomach and hollow cheeks. When he was younger he tripped and chipped his tooth. This normally wouldn't have been a big deal but the tooth pushed upwards in his cavity hitting a nerve so it occasionally caused random pain. The scars on his arms where from an abusive father. His fingers where nimble, yet able. He is tall in height, at 6'2. During his training he recieved a slim build, but not massive like other fellow careers. This is because of the lack of food his father supplied him.

See how much better that is? It also expanded the appearence section, and described your character better.

He also has a belt with knives and wears a feather in his cap literally the feather from his first kill.

Once again, your just randomly stating facts. I don't want to re-write this one for you, so please try and make it like the way I re-wrote it.

Personality:vosok finds people quite annoying and usualy makes quick mean remarks. Not caring mush about others he does what he wants wears what he wants and follows no rule.

Eh, erm. Fine? Well, this is fine, I get the jist in what your saying. Just try and re-write it better, please.

"Sometimes thought cosok will find somebody that he isn't annoyed by. He is very loyal and will protect the person with all his strength and do anything to stop them from harm." << That flows SOOOO much better.

Erm expand. You often forget periods. your characters parents are insane, which is fine I guess. From your desctiption though, Game makers will most likely just kill you off to prevent having an insane victor, since thats how your character was described.

Hmm, she is kinda like a Rue/Katniss. And the funny thing is, I came up with her off of the top of my head. I'll remove the bow and arrow thing, though. Also she's more reserved than Rue. I'll put that in too. I also realized that the whole "song of the mockingjay" thing is dangerously close to Rue. I haven't read the Hunger Games in a while, and can't remember much about how Rue looked or acted. *looks up Rue in Wikipedia as to exclude similarities and to bursh up on Rue*

Name: Saira Feramine
Gender: Female (pronounced SAY-ruh fer-uh-MEE-nay but her surname is hers made up only for her to feel normal, as District 11 people are not allowed surnames)

Age: 14
District: 11

Appearance: Saira is one of the few caucasian females in District 11. Her hair is a waterfall of long, chocolate brown curls with short bangs that she she wears down. She also sports hazel eyes. She has a slight sunburn due to being in the sun all the time, but also because one of the unlucky people who sunburns easier than they tan. She dresses simply, a white tank-top and jean shorts are a favorite, as she is usually working in the fields. She uses a pink scarf as a "belt" whenever her shorts have belt loops. She usually has a pink rose pin in her hair, but removes it for the actual Games. Her teeth aren't the whitest, but they're straight and she has all of them. She is also very scrawny from the poverty in District 11, and having to share food with her three older brothers, but has feminine muscle as well from working in the fields.

Personality: She is usually shy and quiet, only speaking if spoken to or if she has something intelligent to say. She is mainly pacifistic and hates any type of violence, and instead likes to solve things by talking them over. However, if you tick her off, she is a very ferocious fighter, using skill and evasiveness to tire the opponent out, then striking. Though she has a couple aquaintances, there is no one she can actually call her "friend", as no one can get past her outer shell, even though she treats everyone with respect. She is certain that it is because she is caucasian, while the majority of District 11 are African-American. She instead prefers the company of the animals and other wildlife that are around her garden, and the songs of the mockingjays. She herself has a very melodic voice, not good enough to become famous or anything, but still sweet and pure nonetheless. She also trys to avoid trouble whenever possible, as it makes her more noticed, and gives the other kids something else to make fun of.

History: Saira was born in District 11 on April 17, and has had a love for plants since she was a newborn, always toddling around and smelling the flowers in her mother's garden. Since then, she has grown up always surrounded by many different plants and knows the uses of each one, and whether or not they are edible.

Saira began her schooling at 5, and has been at the top, or near the top, of her class since. Her vast knowledge will also come in handy during the Games, to calculate the exact angle of which something needs to be thrown, and the angle of what is being thrown at her, so she can dodge. She is shunned because of it, so she's always been on the outside, sitting alone at lunch. The only person who ever really talked to her was (insert male character's name here).

Growing up in poverty, and three older brothers plus her father to feed (her mother died from an undefined illness), she was the only girl in the family, but also the hardest working. Her brothers slacked off, while Saira worked hard in the fiels day in and day out. Often times, she worked slightly past the end of the day, as to get more done. Her father also forced her to give part of her share of food to the boys of the family, which also explains why she's so scrawny. She willingly did so, however, out of care and love for her family. She also did some of her brothers and father's work because they were so lazy.

When both Saira and (insert male tribute's name here) were both chosen at the Reaping, she was shocked. She hated violence, and she especially didn't want to hurt the only person who at least attempted to be her friend.

Weapon: Pocketknife ("trained" by using it to trim bushes, but she can also throw it will pretty good aim, hitting her target nearly every time) Also, her sheer knowledge and skill will come in handy.

District Token: A braided choker necklace woven from various stems and grasses.

Strategy: Evasiveness, avoiding the fight until necessary, building up strength.

Other: Here is the color (not style, but color) of Saira's hair. (http://i470.photobucket.com/albums/rr65/LilDivaGal/SS%20Charrie%20Pics/penelope_cruz_makeup2.jpg)

name: Vosok Vesselius


Gender:male
Age: 17
District: district 2
Appearance: He has a medium tan from spending almost all his life outside. He has a slim body build from lack of food due to running away. This also resulted into hollow cheeks and a hollow stomach. He eventually gained height from all the stretching exercise in his daily routine the therapist made. As a kid he chipped his tooth when running the tooth wouldn't have caused pain if it hadn't run into his nerves. Also as a kid he received a scar on his arm from his abusive father

My character preferred to wear his brown jacket and black t-shirt to sneak up on animals for a meal. He also wore jeans so there wasn't any loose clothing to trip on. While he wore his cap to insulate the heat and to hide his glossy brown hair. The feather of his first kill for show. His boats are designed for running and climbing.

Personality:vosok finds people quite annoying and usually makes quick mean remarks. Not caring mush about others he does what he wants wears what he wants and follows no rule. Because of this he pretty much loves the feeling of trouble the rush of just knowing that you are ruining a humans life. Due to his hatred of people he doesnt have any crushes.
sometimes though vosok will find someone not anoying and will protect them with all his might and kill any who try to harm that person in any way. But vosok can very quickly find this person annoying again and put a end to them


History: As a young child vosok was abused and hated by his family because of his likings to nature. So he took off wanting only to bring pain and misery to others. He trained to be in the hunger games and to be well equipped with knives and bows but more so the knife. He decided to spend a year in the woods to test himself he came out a man who had many problems. The people helping him hurt him more because of his current state he was full of hatred as friend showed up to help he automatically attacked and tried to kill them. Eventually he settled but when he did there was no one to love or like him even.

Wanting to be in the hunger games as soon as possible to gain friends with the fame. He was going to volunteer only he was called at 12 only to have a volunteer. Watching the hunger games that year he realized he wasn't good enough so he trained more. He studied wildlife learned edible plants and practiced killing on dummies while building his speed and strength. As he trained he became smarter faster and thought soon realized he was ready for the hunger games and so he volunteered .

NOT FINISHED. I didn't get to work on it much, just saving it so that I can edit tomorrow.

Name: Markus "Ninja" Flynn

Gender: Male

Age: 17

District: District 1

Appearance: Markus is the exact opposite of what you (usually) think when someone says "ninja". You think all black, can't see their face, solemn, etc. But no. Markus has blonde hair that isn't long, but isn't, like, a buzz cut either. I don't know how to explain it. Like, it's long enough to not be buzzed, but not long enough to be considered "long". Anyways, he also has dark blue eyes, the color of sapphire, but they sparkle brightly, like the gemstone itself. He often wears a T-shirt the same color as his eyes, and a pair of jeans to go with. He also sports a pair of white sneakers, making the overall effect... well, un-ninja like.

Personality: His personality is also not like that of a ninja.

History: (Now here is where I expect a lot. Dwell into your history. How was life in your district? Family? Friends? Any special skills you developed as you grew older? I want to know everything with your character. 2 full, beefy paragraphs.

*If you are a career tribute (districts 1, 2, and 4) then tell us how you trained [if you’re a career. You can still be in districts 1, 2, and 4 without being a career.] and stuff like that.)

Weapon: Are you capable with using a weapon? If not, leave blank.

District Token: (This is your token you are allowed to bring into the arena with you. It must not be able to be used as a weapon and is your last piece of home while your in the games. It can range from a button to a necklace. Something small. Think hard about it, as it will represent yourself and your district.)

Strategy: How do you plan to win the games? You dont have to answer if you don't know yet.

Other: I care more about Saira than Markus, so... don't kill him off right at the beginning, but I don't mind him going. Just make sure he has a chance to talk to Saira and form an alliance before he's killed. Also, he's a Gary Stu on purpose. Because he's a career Tribute. So... yeah.

20th April 2011, 3:35 AM
Name: Ezekiel "Zeke" Doon

Gender: male

Age: 16

District: 11

Appearance: Ezekiel is of African-American heritage, like most of district 11's population. He is average height for his age, and skinny but muscular enough to have an edge in most fights where he's able to make the first strike. His eyes are a bright green, with a slightly yellowish tint. His hair is jet black, with a small red-dyed streak in the front, from a bottle of dye given to him on his last birthday. His hair is somewhat long and surprisingly straight for someone of his heritage, hanging just below his eyebrows in the front and down to the base of his neck in the back. His face is fairly attractive, with a chiseled nose and chin, set off by his youthful-looking eyes.

Ezekiel isn't one to obsess over what he wears, but he likes to look good. He prefers bright-colored plain shirts and black jeans. Ezekiel doesn't get cold often, and usually doesn't wear jackets or coats.

Personality: Ezekiel is a very easygoing type. That isn't to say he doesn't try, but he always has a certain slouch to his stature, and appears calm and unconcerned in the face of tense situations. He enjoys having fun, and tries to see a bright side to unpleasant situations. To most people, he seems a little bored with life.

In reality, Ezekiel is much more sensitive than he lets on. His easygoing appearance is a cover, due to a paranoia of letting his emotions show, bred early on my his abusive father's treatment of him. Another reason for this is Ezekiel's own anger issues. Ezekiel used to be a brawler in school, and didn't stop causing trouble until one painful memory of a night involving his drunk, angry father and a long, splintered piece of plywood. Ezekiel doesn't really avoid people, but avoids opening up to them until he has already established a friendship with them. One of the first times a friendship lasted long enough for this was with Saira Feramine(the female district 11 tribute), a long-time friend. Ezekiel is a quick thinker, good at improvising.

History: Ezekiel was born to a loving mother, Sasha, and a hating father, Micheal, who felt forced into marriage after getting Sasha pregnant. At first things were okay; Sasha wouldn't let Micheal near baby Zeke when Micheal was drunk. Then Micheal began coming into work drunk, and had to be fired, so Sasha had to begin taking extra shifts to make up for it. This would leave Zeke home alone with his father often, and his father's ways began to rub off on him. Until age 7, Zeke caused trouble wherever he went, picking fights and calling names, throwing bricks at windows. This ended, strangely enough, because of his father. One night, when Ezekiel's father was in a rare state of soberness, he told Ezekiel not to learn from his old man, that he should try and be better than him. For the first and only time, Ezekiel saw sadness in his father's eyes.

After this point, Ezekiel began changing how he acted. He controlled himself better, and began to make more friends. He became happy, but still resentful of his father. The two didn't fight anymore, and Zeke would simply ignore Micheal if he was drunk. Ezekiel's teenage years became his best, spending his free time with friends, and occasional girlfriends once puberty completely set in. He kept his friends close enough to keep, but was somewhat wary of them, as a possible effect of wariness of his father. At age 14, Ezekiel began signing up for tessary, so his mother could take a few more hours off a week without too much worry for food. Although his mother voiced objections, it was, surprisingly, his father who was more actively against it. In the end, though, Ezekiel was let to take the tessar, for the small amounts of relief it gave.

Weapon: No, but he is very adept at using his hands for disarmament.

District Token: A silver and bronze bracelet of Zeke's mothers, with engravings in the shape of apples along the sides.

Strategy: No clear idea yet, but as stated above, Ezekiel is good at improvising.

Badda-boom.

Blargh, I'm out of practice.

Name: Fleece Saire

Gender: Male

Age: 13

District: 10

Appearance: Perhaps the most noticeable part of Fleece is his hair – while at a glance his name may seem silly and uncreative, it’s his hair that labelled him as such (but it’s still a silly and uncreative name). Soft, slightly curly and almost white (but actually blonde in the correct light), it’s nearly identical to sheep’s wool (except not filthy). Beneath this, on a rounded, tanned face are two large, watery brown-red eyes. A small nose dusted with freckles and thin lips complete his whole facial ensemble. Coming from one of the wealthier families of District 10, he’s not nearly as thin and malnourished as he could be – but naturally, he’s not plump either. He’s reached a pretty good equilibrium of muscle and fat, but he’s naturally rather thin and weedy, and stands only at 5’3”. He normally dresses as if he were out on the ranch, even when going to school. At a basic level, he wears a surprisingly clean white polo shirt and short jeans, rolled up to his knees. Over his shirt is a slightly worn leather vest with brass buttons. It’s not particularly fancy or anything but it’s his favourite garment and almost refuses to take it off. On his feet are thick woollen socks and hardy leather boots. He usually has thick leather gloves on his hands.

Personality: Fleece is quiet, unassuming and alarmingly prone to bursting into tears. He doesn’t like talking to others and prefers to company of his sheep. He’s sensitive and hates conflict, and rather obedient and submissive towards others because he’s not very confident in himself. However, one fact people don’t expect about him is he’s quite open to killing, and has already done so himself – to livestock, of course. He can be quite cold in regards to mercy. He is also quite capable of fighting. He’s bright but doesn’t like admitting so, and is rather observant when he needs to be. He has a sort of attitude which seems to calm animals – well, it’s not like a raging mutt will start simpering but he is able to approach some placid animals and they won’t startle and run away. He’s not a very good talker and tends to stutter and murmur in public situations. He’s also a very modest person. Incidentally, he is terrified of cows.

History: Fleece grew up the third and final child to the wealthiest shepherd in the district. His elder brother, Cashmere, and elder sister, Angora, tried to break free of their caste and go beyond sheep, but Fleece was happy with his lot in life. Ever since he was little he loved to just sit out with the flocks and daydream. His father, disappointed with his two older children, took a disproportionate amount of interest in his youngest. He taught the boy everything he knew – traps to catch foxes and wolves, how to wrangle sheep and shear them, and even how to wrestle, even if his son was short and weak. Fleece developed a good relationship with his father and sheep, but was shy and quiet around others. He was resented by some, and taken advantage of by others due to his submissive nature. He’d take sheepskins and lamb and give them to others, thinking he was being a bit of a hero and making friends. Unfortunately, his father thought others were stealing them and had the Capitol look into it. Fleece said nothing, and instead just retreated to his flocks and hide away, refusing to talk to others for a long, long time.

Fleece never really paid attention to the Games, especially since he never needed to put his name in extra times. He tended not to watch, simply by hiding away in his flocks. He never knew anyone who was reaped. Even when it was broadcast in the air, he was having too much fun chasing the sheep with his father’s dogs.

Weapon: Staves or any long stick. He’s also pretty handy with an axe, but it’s unlikely he’ll find any.

District Token: An old whistle on a string around his neck.

Strategy: The element of surprise. Try not to panic.

I haven't roleplayed much since last summer, hopefully this isn't too far off from what you were looking for~

Name: Cosette Larimore

Gender: Female

Age: 17 years old

District: 12; coal mining

Appearance:

Cosette’s frame is slender with slight muscle tone and of about average height, 5’ 7”. Her black hair shines blue under light, straight and kept short to prevent knots. It ends just at her shoulders, where bones protrude unhealthily from cream colored skin. Cosette has a heart-shaped face with a small, straight nose and lips that are full and pink. Her eyes, once bright blue, are now a faded grey blue closely resembling the grey eyes of most of District 12. She does not require glasses or anything of the sort.


Her clothing is mostly hand-me-downs, worn out and patched up by her mother. These consist of oversized sweatshirts and loose fitting jeans. Her sneakers are falling apart at the seams, faded to the point that it’s impossible to tell what color they once were. The one wearable item she has that is in good condition is a small locket given to her by her mother on her sixteenth birthday. It contains a tiny piece of coal from the District 12 mines.


Personality:

She is very withdrawn and introverted. Cosette is quiet and very, very seldom speaks. Her personal preference is to avoid human interaction if at all possible. The only emotion she shows is in her eyes, otherwise her expression remains constantly bored. Inside, however, she feels pain all of the time. Cosette misses her father terribly and does not want people to know how much it bothers her. Many people die in the mines in District 12, so she feels like she shouldn’t let it constantly bother her the way it does.

History:

Cosette was born to Leonel and Myrtie Larimore. Leonel was a coal miner. Myrtie helped her elderly neighbors with errands to get a bit of money here and there to help support the family, but shortly after she discovered she was pregnant, Myrtie began to stay home most of the time. For most of Cosette’s childhood she was relatively happy with her life, they had little money for food and clothing, but she always had optimism. Her bond with her father was always far stronger than the bond with her mother. He would sit and talk with her for hours after he got back from the mines. Even after starting school she made friends and was outgoing and kind to everyone. Not long after she turned fourteen, things changed.


Leonel was involved in a coal mining accident and struggled to live for a few months before dying. Cosette was devastated and from that moment she kept to herself and barely spoke to anyone. Her emotions slowly began to disappear and the only way to tell how she was feeling was through her eyes. She kept one friend in her life, Erica Luick, and ignored the rest. Months passed, and slowly she drifted even from Erica. Myrtie tried to keep her home as much as possible besides during times when they were forced to leave their home. Myrtie worked again to get money to support their family, but it wasn’t enough, so Cosette had to begin to enter for tesserae. Cosette liked to climb up a tree or go for a run to keep herself distracted from thinking about her father, so she eventually gained a bit of muscle. Her mother was afraid that she would become lonely from never being around anyone, so she got her to help bake dinner and paint with her occasionally. This gave her skills with using a knife, climbing, and painting.

Weapon: Slightly skilled with a knife

District Token: Her locket with a small piece of coal contained inside. It represents her father who died in the mines and it represents the coal mining in District 12.

Strategy: She plans to hide and avoid conflict until the very end.

I would like a little more in personality, but your History was fine. So I guess it balances each other out? *shrugs*

You are Approved!

May the odds be ever in your favor!

Oh, and your signature, it's from the last book. When

Peeta is asking Katniss what's real and not. :') awwwwe....


IMPORTANT: If you are reserved, it most likely will end tommorrow. (With the exception of one, who will end on Friday.) Please get your SU's in so we can quickly begin the games.

It looks like we will have 8 NPC's. Which is fine. (:

YES im district 2

Ditto123
21st April 2011, 2:39 PM
Name: Sam Brisk

Gender: Male

Age: 14

District: District 3

Appearance: Sam is actually a bit short for his age, 14. His height is around 5"4. He's not that skinny, but not fat either. Actually, he's like a bodybuilder, with bulging muscles (I find that discusting). He wears no form of sight helper things as he has 20/20 vision. Sam's hair is dark brown and straight, just a bit short. His teeth are just a tiny bit crooked on the front, but as white as pearls. Sam's skin is tanned from being outside alot, playing sports. Sam puts on the first thing in his closet.

Sam is one of the beautiful people. Other cannot help but fall for him. He is a hunk all the way. But, he doesn't care. How do I put this, Sam is gay *Crowd gasps and a baby crying is heard* Sam has scratches all over his skin as a result from sports. They come and go whenever he plays sports. But he has gotten used to it, so they never hurt anymore. In fact, he wants more scars so he can show off how brave he is.

Personality: Sam is the most amazing guy out there. He's confident, brave, and hot. He is the apple of everyones eyes. That is what the females think. He is so conceited that it isn't funny. His only thoughts are to save himself. He has to butt into conversations, and not let others have their moments. His motto is that if it involves anything but himself, it sucks. While his family is thin, he is well fed. That is because he always steals the food for himself. He is selfish, and unkind. He also contributes nothing for the district. Why, he's incredibley stupid. He is the stupidest kid of District 3, of Panem, you can run into.

Also, Sam is gay. Something in his past turned him gay. Of course, I will cover that later. Sam is in love with men, not women. He thinks that women are horrid beasts and men are the true beings of nature. The amazing one. He doesn't get straight people. Only one other person knew about him being gay. His sister. The 19 year old one. But she died in the Hunger Games. Sam doesn't know why girls love him so much. They should love other girls, the cycle of life, right? At least, that's how Sam sees it.

History: Sam has 3 older sisters. One is 17, one is supposed to be 19, and the last is 20. His mom should get a life xD. Sam could caren't less for his family. He hates their guts. At the first chance, he would slit their throats. His mom died in the factory she worked in. It...um...exploded. Jess' dad never got over it. He described her as "Aphrodite on Earth". Sam's family often struggled with food and money, but that was because of Sam. He hogged all of the food and his family never had anything for themselves. But sometimes, Sam's obnoxious 17 year old sister, Jess, would turn up with money to buy food. But then she would wonder where to disappeared to. All Sam's doing. Sam goes outside a lot to play sports. He is really athletic...and dumb.

Sam lives in the outdoors. It's pretty much his second home. Many times, he would find a stick and kill anything that passes buy. His dad tried to get him to come with him to the factory. Sam actually went, but the workers kicked him out when he caused an explosion. It wasn't that big. It only took out half the building. And no one was there. Sam was actually trying to kill his dad, who always favored his sisters. Sam's older sister has been in the 55th Hunger Games. She should be 19 years old. Yea...it's that sister. Sam's sister was the first one killed. It happened in the bloodbath in the Cornucopia. At the reaping, Sam thought it odd that Jess, his sister, volunteered. Then he realized that this was the perfect chance to kill her. So he volunteered next.

Weapon: Any heavy weapon

District Token: Skin from his football

Strategy: Team up with Careers/Brute Force (I changed it, loco)

I won't be killing the RPGer's characters. You guys will kill each other. But if you have 2 characters then one is more likely to die. So you have 2, it's unlikely they both will make it to the finals. But yes, the odds are favoring Jess right now for district 3.

(halfway into writing my SU, I realized that my character's first name is the same as another character here; but I also saw that you said they have a higher chance of being killed, so I kept it - if you want it changed, let me know :3)

Name: Sam Eldahart

Gender: Male.

Age: Eighteen.

District: District 12, coal mining.

Appearance: After working hard throughout his life, Same has become a rough, solid person both in personality and appearance. Cleaning and working all the time has put Sam through enough physical labor that he has a good bit of muscle. He has a defined jaw, and semi-muscular arms, though not enough that it's completely noticeable all the time. He keeps his hair short, since working in the mines is not something you'd want to have long hair for. Not only have the mines made his hair be but often, but it's also made his face look dirty and smudged, and his eyes gray.

Clothing-wise, he's not picky. Jeans and whatever kind of shirt or sweatshirt he can put on to protect himself is fine. All of his pairs of jeans have at least one hole or rip in them, and any clothing he has is plain, and mostly char-colored. He keeps an old pair of sneakers around for when he doesn't need to use the dilapidated work boots he received after his father left. In fact, most of what he wears used to belong from his father.

Personality: Everything in his part has lead Sam to be an impassive person to almost everyone. His childhood ended abruptly when he had to start working and providing for his family. This all happened when he was nine, and a nine-year-old boy obviously can't do much "work." But he managed to do little things to get some food and small amounts of money. As he grew up, these grown-up things he had to do only increased, and ultimately made him grow up and mature very quickly. He does not know the definition of "friends" or "playing," only survival. He has done nothing but work for his family to keep them living, and it's hardened his emotions to the point where he just does things to get them done, not stalling or taking long.

He rarely smiles, not because he can't or doesn't want to, but because he doesn't have a reason to. His day consists of getting up early, working, getting the essentials to live, and continuing to do this over and over without question. It's not in his nature to care for many other people besides himself and his mom, because that's who he's living for. No one else keeps him going, so he's indifferent to any events that happen to those around him.

History: As much as Sam's history has changed and morphed him into who he is today, he doesn't think about it much, hardly ever. His family was "normal," as normal as they could be living in poverty. He lived with his mom, dad, and his dad's sister after he was born. His aunt died shortly into his life, so it didn't change him much, but it completely changed his dad. Although he wasn't old enough to remember very much back then, his dad used to be happy with his life, and a great person - after Sam's aunt died, he became reclusive and unresponsive to Sam and Sam's mom. The family struggled more as that happened for a few years, and as each one passed his father grew even more distant. Around the time Sam was eight, his dad left altogether. He doesn't know if his dad died or just ran away, and at this point in his life, he doesn't care.

Right after turning eight and his dad leaving, his mother started working more. Eventually, she hurt her foot one day, which lead to an infection, and ultimately her losing the ability to walk - the other foot became infected as well from being used so much. She seemed to age thirty years after that, becoming weak and unable to take care of herself. Sam took over getting food and what little money they got until he could work in the mines. Ever since then, each event in his life that has happened has shaped him into who he is now.

Same never talked to people in the mines unless he had to. Other people weren't his thing. He preferred to keep to himself and just get his job done. He often works in parts of the areas where there are less people, which ended up with him finding his weapon on one occasion and what would later become his token on another. No one ever talks to him, and he never hears anyone talk about him. Eventually it became normal to him, and didn't bother him at all. The only thing he cared for was bringing in anything he could to help him and his mom live. Each year, Sam doesn't get bothered by the Games. He doesn't care to be in them, though he also doesn't care if he got picked. His mother's health gets worse each day, and he figures that she'll either die from bad health and cause him have nothing to live for, or he'll die in the Games and cause her to live with nothing. He has accepted death, and anything that the Games may bring to him.

Weapon: He owns a semi-rusted dagger that he found while working in the mines.

District Token: A silver ring he keeps on his right ring finger. Like his dagger, he found it in the mines. It has some charred marks on it, and wasn't in bad condition when he found it, so he assumes it fell off of someone during an accident. There is a tiny pickaxe inscribed on it.

Strategy: Like how he lives everyday, he just plans on surviving, as lame and non-specific as that sounds. Whether he has people with him to further his game or not, he just plans to go through and keep living so that he can win.

Can i reserve district 4 female? I'll either edit this post with my application or post a new post

here is my post:

Name: Sarah Kegan

Gender: Female

Age: 16

District: 4

Appearance: Sarah is about 5' 4 and weighs about 120 pounds. People have called her a twig, showing no muscle or fat. This bullying hasn't fazed her at all. She has long flowing blonde hair. She has bright blue eyes. Sarah also has straight clean teeth. She has small cute freckles (as people have told her). She also has a small nose and wears glasses while reading.

Normally she wears typical bikini top common in district 4. Most of the time Sarah is wearing cut off jeans to maximize her comfort. She always has a light orange tan from spending so much time under the sun. She also always wears sandals.

Personality: Sarah is an optimistic, charismatic individual. Sarah currently lives in a quiet neighborhood less then a mile from the beach. She spends alot of time surfing on the beaches near her house since she's legally to young to work alone. Her and her parents are still mourning the death of her little brother from last years hunger game. She is always looking at things on the bright side. She is good at making people laugh and trust her.

Her friends usually go to her if they need to vent to someone, knowing she is a great listener. Most catagerize her as the "dumb blonde" but she has never failed a class all throughout school. She also has street smart to take care of herself in times of need. She's clever and persuasive and can get her out of most trouble or fights. People describe her as funny, charismatic, and bubbly.

History: Not many people know about Sarah's deep depression. She hides it by laughing with her friends and trying to avoid touchy subjects. After the death of her brother, she lost the trust in most of the adults in her life. Including her parents. Despite all this Sarah is always surrounded by a large group of friends from school. She has been working since she was young as most of her other friends have. She is surprisingly smart and fast. All the time working with her dad have given her the endurance to swim for hours at a time. While working with her dad she has began developing a trust in some adults close to her. Every year she has been terrified about being thrown into the games. Although she has never signed up for tesserae and the odds of her going in are slim. She has a gut feeling that her "luck" may be over.

The thought of this upcoming Hunger Games sickens her. Knowing that she has to applause the people that killed her brother last year. After her brother died, her family has been heartsick. The months following, there were many nights of quiet dinners. Finally therapy helped a bit. During her life in District 4 she has been fairly well-fed. Her parents both have jobs that supply them with enough money for the 3 of them. She never had the thought to train illegally before a reaping because 1. ITS ILLEGAL and 2. She never thought she would be in the game. The day of the reaping she wasn't very surprised that nobody took her place; knowing that going to Hunger Games is like signing a death note.

Weapon: A handheld knife used for gutting fish.

District token: A coral shell necklace.

Strategy: currently none

Can i reserve district 4 female? I'll either edit this post with my application or post a new post

Age: 16

District: 4

Appearance: Sarah is about 5' 4 and weighs about 120 pounds. She has long flowing blonde hair. She has bright blue eyes. Sarah also has straight clean teeth. Normally she wears typical bikini top and shorts common in district 4. She always has a light orange tan from spending so much time under the sun.

Okay, I know appearance is kinda hard. Since it's like, yeah. lol. But, here. Try to make 2 paragraphs like this. Make 1 pargraph dedicated to natural appearance, then the 2nd paragraph to her clothing.

It can be a little hard, but just give it a shot, and I'll see where you go! (:

(Is she skinny/fat? Muscular/weak?)

Personality: Sarah currently lives in a quiet neighborhood less then a mile from the beach. She spends alot of time surfing on the beaches near her house. Her and her parents are still murning *Oh, spell check, its "mourning" I think you forgot the "o" (:the death of her little brother from last years hunger game. She is always looking at things on the bright side. She is good at making people laugh and trust her.

She has been working since she was young as most of her other friends have. The sentence in red should be in history. Most catagerize her as the "dumb blonde" but she has never failed a class all throughout school. She also has street smart to take care of herself in times of need. Three words to describe her are funny, charismatic, and bubbly.

Okay, you got a basic skeleten of what you want in her personality. How about this; (feel free to take it, but it'd be a whole lot better if you re-wrote it yourself. I don't mind either way)

"Sarah is a bright young individual. She's optimistic and enjoys making people laugh. She is a trusting and caring person, and in return people trust her. Most people judge her by her appearence and wave her off as a "dumb blonde", but she never failed a class throughout school. She also has street smarts to be able to take care of herself. She's clever and persuasive, (okay, I added that part in.) and usually manages to get out of trouble when she can. She is described as funny, charismatic, and bubbly.

She is easy to talk to and a great listener. Her friends often go to her when they are in need of somebody to just... listen to them. She is understanding and sympathetic of others. She is a kind spirit and often brings nothing but joy to others. She enjoys surfing and going to the beach, being too young to actually work yet. Sarah lives up every second of her youth not wanting to waste it."

History: Not many people know about Sarah's deep depression. She hides it by laughing with her friends and trying to avoid touchy subjects. After the death of her brother, she lost the trust in most of the adults in her life. Including her parents. Despite all this Sarah is always surrounded by a large group of friends from school. She is surprisingly smart and fast. All the time working with her dad have given her the endurance to swim for hours at a time. While working with her dad she has began developing a trust in some adults close to her. Every year she has been terrified about being thrown into the games. Although she has never signed up for tesserae and the odds of her going in are slim. She has a gut feeling that her "luck" may be over.

These two paragraphs, I combinded together to form one. It's a good solid. Go on how she feels about the games. How she deals with the death of her brother. What was her family like? Is she well fed? Is she one of the richer families? She isn't a career? Why not? She was randomly chosen, but nobody chose to volenteer that year in a career district?

Weapon: A handheld knife used for gutting fish.

District token: A coral shell necklace.

Strategy: currently none

Overall it's pretty good. With a little help it can be better though. Go on, and edit, and we will see.

Have you read the books? Just wondering! (: Good luck!

Name: Eris Dis

Gender: Female

Age: 16

District: 9

Appearance: There is no way of getting around it: Eris is hot. Don't let her age fool you: she's a fully developed and *ahem* very well gifted young woman. About 5'9 and around 110-120 pounds, Eris has a slim, sexy figure. Her straight, jet black hair extends past her shoulders and her bangs are kept trimmed to a perfect length just off her eyebrows, giving the effect that her whole face is framed in ebony. Her eyes are always full of playful emerald fire; her skin is unblemished but rather pale on account of the thick smog constantly hanging over her home district. Her features are rounded and accentuate her beauty: small nose, full lips, the works.

Eris chooses clothing which shows off her natural physique: a tight tank top and skinny jeans usually, but a dark-colored short dress when the occasion calls for something a bit nicer. Her shoes are usually just a pair of work boots, practically the only shoes one can find in District 9. Around her neck is always, formal or informal, a silver chain, the only memento she has left of her mother.

Personality: Coldhearted, manipulative, and sadistic, Eris enjoys two things in life: getting what she wants and stepping on others to get it. Eris is a smart girl, a heartless, shrewd young lady who sees other women as obstacles and men as tools to get around obstacles. When those tools run out of usefulness, Eris gets rid of them. And sometimes for her, getting rid of them is the fun part. Eris is a black widow, but still men just can't resist.

Around others Eris is always charmingly playful, always trying to toy with people's emotions. If her target doesn't play along, she'll just convince somebody else to get the unwilling soul out of her way. Eris is a girl who just loves the world at her fingers and all the men around them. It worked on the foundry heads. It worked on the Peacekeepers. And it will definitely work in the Hunger Games. Eris is also confident; she has just about every right to be that way.

History: Eris grew up through hell. With an abusive father and a loving but scared and weak mother, Eris quickly hardened herself towards humanity. When her mother committed suicide when Eris was nine, her father turned his abusiveness towards his own daughter. The man was almost always drunk and treated his child like the worst kind of trash. Nobody cared, however: the poor girl faced her devil alone. Fortunately, nobody was suspicious when her father "hanged himself." Young Eris got away free.

On her own at the age of fifteen, Eris quickly learned how to use her beauty to her own advantage. Using her body for money and sustenance, Eris quickly had everything she could want. But her warped mind could never be properly satisfied, and the girl soon realized only one way existed to alleviate her bloodlust: the Hunger Games.

Eris quickly shifted her goals (and demands) to match her new scheme: "convince" the right people (even a few capitol personnel) to get some things in the games, some things out. After all, District 9 provided the majority of weapons and such for the games. She worked her body to perfect fitness. After all, a girl can get anything she wants as long as she plays her cards right. Eris happens to have all the right cards.


Weapon: A chain. Eris can wield a chain like a whip with incredible skill.

District Token: Her silver chain, which originally belonged to her mother. the chain is made of silver, about two feet long. A small latch attaches at the back of her neck.

Strategy: Is it not obvious? Charm her male opponents, charm the sponsors. Get what she wants. And when that fails... she'll just have some fun.

(Naturally I can't delve to deep into the abuse just so you can avoid an older rating. And at least she's got a personality which really fits the plot well.

all and all, fix't)

LokiTheGengar: You have a very interesting, manipulative character. I like it. :) But, you are pending.

I would like to know a little more in personality, and a pinch more in history.

You're character sounds like a mary sue, but I don't care about that, as long as it doesn't influence the majority of the games. You can seduce male opponents and kill them... thats a strategy... hehe.

Okay, for those who are reserved, please get them to me soon.

Tommorrow is the last day for SU. From there, I will take LSU's, but you will miss out on some of the RPG.

Name: Jason Zai (Jason means "to heal" Zai is Japanese for "drug/medicine"

Age: 15

District: 6

Appearance: Jason appears rather Asian, and is very slight. He is rather pale, as he doesn't spend a lot of time outside, preferring to spend most of his time indoors reading. He has black hair, and different colored eyes. One is black and the other is pale white-blue. This was from an accident during the eye-surgery he got, to get rid of his glasses. The artificial tears were replaced by a mild acid. He saved his eye, but it killed the melanin-production in his left eye, turning it a pale blue. He keeps his hair fairly short, and keeps it windblown to the left. He short for his age, only 5' 4".
He is fairly thin, and one of his ears is lopsided, where he was bitten by a rat whose leg he tried to set. Foolish... His eyes look lifeless, and he appears somewhat unhealthy, from drug abuse.
He has thin brows, and very white teeth. He could be handsome if he smiled, which he rarely does, preferring a sarcastic grin. (Imagine... Artemis Fowl/Sai (Naruto)) Born left handed, Jason practiced until he became ambidextrous. He does everything with his right hand, but is actually better with his left.

He usually wears a doctor's coat, with comfortable clothes underneath. He keeps a sharp scapel in his pocket, and wears a thumb-bone around his neck.

Personality: Jason is a very indoor person, almost never entering any form of wilderness. He helps his parents in their surgery, and has very steady hands. He spends most of his free time reading his father's questionably large collection of books, and therefore knows a lot about survival. In theory.
Jason is very intelligent, and comes across as bossy, which often gets him in trouble. He hates unintelligent people, and doesn't know where to stop with sarcastic comments. He has very few friends, but has read several books on human psychology. One wonders if he can actually pull off anything in his head. He is also very competitive, hating to lose.
Jason is selfish, and tries to be cold and heartless, but he was a good person, and is broken inside. He is very self reliant, but genuinely cares for his mother, and his deceased father. His little sister also died, during a surgery performed by him. He blames himself for it. He buried all of his pain so deeply, he lost it even from himself. He has even deluded himself into believing he doesn't care, but without the calming drugs, how long will that control last? His mother fondly remembers the days when her son was 7, the happiest child in the world, before his father died, and he changed. She misses the awkward boy with huge glasses. She has noticed her son's addiction, but hasn't done anything, wishing that he would be free, even for a few moments.
Despite his dislike of human beings, Jason loves animals, from arachnids to reptiles, he would save one over a human life. According to him "animals are simple beings. They won't lie to you, they do everything to survive. And when they die, they can be replaced." Perhaps the Games can bring him about.

History: Jason was born to a pair of surgeons in District 6. His parents were able to make their lives better than the average citizen in the districts, and he grew up somewhat spoiled. Ever since infancy, Jason was very curious, and would go out and try to help wildlife. From a very young age, he began training as a surgeon, to help support the family when his father fell ill. His world became one of blood and death. After his father died, he hated everyone, and more of his patients had... accidents. (Wow, I love Italics)
After his father's death, he became addicted to Morphling (morphine I guess?), and has been trying to wean himself off it. With enormous strength of will, he has fought the addiction, but still feels some withdrawal.
He had one sibling, who died during surgery. Jason had to perform the surgery, and this time, he genuinely tried to save her. She still died, which gave him a fear of death. After two losses, he shunned human companionship, and raised a large spider, who could easily be replaced upon death.
He has a great sense of self-preservation. He never took tesserae, and would never have signed up for the Games. He was horrified to have been selected.

Weapon: Needles (thin sharp jabbing things then. Stiletto?), pressure-points, small knives. Live surgery is... fun. Good knowledge of chemicals and natural plants. Poison.

Token: His father's thumb-bone on a string.

Strategy: Join up with the strongest group that will take him. A medic would be very useful to any group. Betray them later. (Hope no one reads this. Lol.)

Geh, characterization. I'm a plot person, my characters are never good. It's why I don't write fan-fics anymore.

... hey, since I'm co-GM, I guess I have authority.

Heh. First of all, be accepted before you post your RP post... ^-^;;;

While I can't approve/pend/disprove you, I'll point out a few things.

1. It's too short. Much too short. Appearance needs more things - hair style? Face structure? Some stuff you can put in, whatever works. In Personality, any quirks? Anything to balance out the currently-flat personality? Something shocking that nobody should know? A soft side? And in History, anything else exciting?

2. You won't find needles, syringes or any other medical equipment in the area.

3. As for your strategy, the Careers likely won't let you join them lol. A pharmacist is probably going to be more useful in the long run since you can find plants in the area but not needles or bandages; I'm one though...

*swoons at Asian kid* I'm so weird; I need to stop watching Asian dramas/anime.

Out of curiosity, read the Hunger Games before?

Ok, here it goes ^-^:

Name:
Cilae Rowse.


Gender:
Female.


Age:
13 years old.


District:
10, Livestock.


Appearance:
Cilae has a pimple sprinkled forehead which she hides underneath her Van Dyke brown fringe. She has long, layered hair she ties up into a ponytail to keep her from roasting and sweating under the thin layers of ever insulating locks. Her eyes are large, black beads hammered into her head. She has thick, almost male eyebrows and a stubby nose where some pimples have sprouted. Under her giant eyelash protected eyes sit deep bags that show days of hard work and insomnia. Her pinkish-nude-coloured lips are slightly plump and are always curved in a Mona Lisa-like smile. She has pumped up cheeks that help support her round head. Her rounded, sphere-like chin has at least a dozen red speckles dotted around it, just like her nose and forehead.

She has scars, scratches and scabs all over her pale body from handling livestock and unprotected falconry. She has long, lanky arms that may not look very strong, but from day-to-day lifting animals and equipment she must have some strength in her. Her body is thin, with a few, painfully deep scars from lashing (from thieving) on her back. Large, muscled legs from 13 years of footwork balance her skinny body. She has short fair hairs sprouting on her legs and arms and her elbows and knees are knobbly and scarred. Her calf muscles are shapely and large, proving her kicking skills. She has flat, wide feet supporting her legs which are a bit misshapen, as are some parts of her tough hands.

Cilae wears two thick leather gloves that remain permanently sewn onto her arms. On occaisions, she wears a white space-suit hat, but instead of glass and metal, there is black mesh and a neat white cloth. She removes this and replaces it with a black and green striped bandana when she isn't looking after the bees and honey. Her clothing is usually a pair of custom-made, insoled, wool insulated, leather boots that zoom up to just above her knees (this hides her feet and keeps it in shape), a worn-and-torn pair of black, denim-like material trousers and an ill-fitting plain dark green cotton t-shirt that gets layered over by a black long-sleeved wool hoodie. Usually in her leather-protected hand lies a beautiful, grey-blue peregrine falcon named ‘Anya’ or a long oaken staff and toolbox she uses to collect honey with.


Personality:
Cilae is quite a sly, sneaky girl. Not only because she breaks the law by sneaking around stealing peoples livestock to sell on the black market for money, but also because she has over a dozen places to hunt unlawfully with her falconry. She remains quiet and doesn’t trust anyone since her father fled from the recession when her family was most in need, thus making her unfriendly and unpopular. Cilae has only two friends, Anya and Floss (Floss is a bear that leads her to where the liquid money is (honey)) if you count them as friends. Cilae hasn’t got great social skills, and with usually mumble or run away if someone attempts to spark a conversation with her. She’s very timid in front of strangers and crowds; she doesn’t co-operate much and in schoolwork, she's always working alone. She is very logical and smart in puzzles and real life dilemmas such as getting the hell out of trouble and escaping from an angry man that’s continuously ranting at you for stealing his potatoes and chickens. When she isn't silent, she is very witty and careless when making a comment (comments are a rarity, mind). In other words, she offends people easily and usually gets herself in trouble whenever she opens her mouth, which explains certain lashes on her back and her ever growing shyness.


History:
Life in district 10 is no different from much of the other districts. Life is hard taking care of animals. Fortunately, Cilae doesn’t have to worry about taking care of cattle. She uses the wild animals to help her. She likes to run around with wild creatures to help her steal helpless ungulates from the richest farmers in District 10 without being noticed. She’s tip top at activating, deactivating and dodging traps that clueless farmers set when they notice something or someone is stealing their livestock. Sometimes, Cilae does fail and gets snapped up by the traps, but she always has time to deactivate them before any severe damage is caused, which may or may not explain a certain number of reasons why her body is so deeply scarred. She shares a bond with wild animals, using an ‘I scratch your back you scratch mine’ method to obtain help from them. At the age of 9, in the bleak mid-winter, Cilae went to scavenge squirrel nuts from the ground as a desperate resource for her family. Once, she saw a squirrel and planned to hit it with her wooden stake. Before she could knock it dead, a bird scooped it right up and started eating the inners of it. Cilae noticed this was too fast for a normal bird. This was a falcon. She befriended this bird and began training it to defend her and help her. Cilae, as fairly as she could, split the winnings so half of it went to Anya and her family, the peregrine falcon and her chicks, and the other half went to Cilae and her own family. Then there was that sunny hot day when Cilae had not hope in finding honey for her family, when a bear, in the same situation, magically appeared in front of her. They trained and befriended one and other and soon, Cilae had nice jars of honey to sell and Floss, the bear, had perfect knowledge of how to dodge traps and Floss also got about a jar’s worth of honey as well.

Cilae Rowse’s family aren’t the wealthiest lot with only Cilae working and collecting the family income by merchanting. Ludwig and Lusaia are Cilae’s 5 year old brother and sister. The two are a cheeky pair unless their mother is at hand to keep them sane. Cilae considers them somewhat of a pain, a spare two mouths to feed and bathe. However, they aren’t really a pair of rotten eggs. Cilae loves them to shreds but wishes they wouldn’t stuff their mouths as much as they do. Staziea, the mother of the three kids is an unstable, shocked woman that does nothing but keep Lud and Lus (this is what Cilae calls the twin twosome) in the house and safe out of harm’s way. Staziea is a weakling because her husband, Alamo, ran away as soon as the recession began, shortly after Cilae's 7th birthday, leaving Staziea and Cilae with nothing but the clothes on their backs and a small house. Ever since, Staziea had a weak posture and required the 7 year old Cilae to bathe her, feed her and keep her decent. If it wasn’t for Cilae's job, Ms Rowse would belong in a mental asylum and Cilae in an orphanage. Now, you may wonder how Lud and Lus came along. Lud and Lus, the pair of children that Cilae found in the meadow, the two tiny, pinkish squirming human larvae that were just plonked inside a sheep’s white wool skin with no protection in the fields when the pitch black night of autumn had cursed the dipping valleys and rising hills. Of course, Cilae had no choice. She had to save the pair of poppets before the wolves came to snap them up. Cilae took them back to her astounded mother. Immediately, Staziea was the happiest mother in the world and Cilae got a thousand kisses. Staziea had the first responsibility she had gotten in ages. Recently, Staziea had actually swept the front porch all day until the little ranch gleamed. This was such a massive improvement from the absent minded mental asylum Cilae had to feed years back.

From all this experience, Cilae had grown skills of hunting animals with certain tricks that the experts told her, the experts being Floss and Anya. Cilae has learnt how to protect and defend herself with crude weapons that Mother Nature provides. She likes the use of javelins; it reminds her a bit of using falconry. Sharp, quick and flies. She can climb trees like an expert –after half a dozen years of climbing up and down trees to collect eggs and honey- and see great in the dark from all those sleepless nights she was out stealing sheep and cattle. Also, she collected the great, effective skill of lying, stealing and slipping out of sticky situations.


Weapon:
Cilae is skilled with throwing javelins or whipping with ropes (since her previous experience with whips, she has practised and learnt a bit about how to use them).


District Token:
The exquisite hairband Staziea, Lud and Lus worked on for 2 days. It has Anya’s smallest wing feather pierced into it and one of Floss’s extremely blunt teeth (It has now deteriorated into a small yellowish pebble tied onto a string to put in the plait) carefully plaited into the stretchy leather plait band.


Strategy: Cilae is planning to use her surroundings to help her. She relies on the animals, the stealing, the cornucopia, her running, her hiding, her climbing and her slyness to get to a crucial point in the game, and then go in for the kill by taking to the trees and tall grass.

I'd like to start out with I LOVE these books!

Name: Eric (I don't know my last name my history explains)

Gender: Male

Age: 15.

District: 6 (Medicine)

Appearance: Eric is average build, however taller then most of his age group. (6 foot, 130 lbs.) He has pale skin with a deep scar on the left side of his chest. He has blue eyes, medium length black curly hair. He wears leather armor made from old welding jackets that he found while scavenging. The only new clothes he has is a pair of Military combat boots that his "father" gave to him before Eric was sent off.

Personality: Eric is a loner, never having many friends. He prefers to be off by himself then with others. He is quiet, but when he speaks his words are very thought out and hold meaning to them.

History: Eric was found in the wreckage of District 13 as a small child when the head doctor of District 6 was looking for survivors. He could not believe that this small child has survived. Eric had a gaping wound on his chest from a falling I beam, almost hitting his heart. The doctor, Lloyd Anderson, cleaned up Eric's and took him back to the medical van.
Lloyd noticed that Eric had an amulet around his neck. He looked at it closely and saw a phrase in a language that he did not know. Eric was taken back to District 6 and raised as Lloyd's child. Lloyd taught him medicinal skills ranging from splinting a broken leg to treating for dysentery. He was also taught the wild plants that had medicinal properties.

Weapon: Two short swords.

District Token: Eric's Amulet. It reads "Den fornnordiska kommer att stiga igen." Which means "The Norse will rise again." in Swedish.
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41aIm4pUkHL._SL500_SL160_.jpg

Strategy: I run solo, the whole time, waiting for my time to strike, like a predator.

This is my first RPG, so don't kill me if this is a little too short. I know that someone already signed up for this spot, just pick the one you think would fit best.

Name: Jack Rolloski

Gender: Male

Age: 13

District: 6

Appearance: Jack is tall, about 6' 5". He has dark brown hair, light blue eyes, and has about a dozen freckles on his face. He has big ears, although about an inch off the to of his right ear is missing due to an accident when he was 9. His nose is normal size, and has a few freckles on it. His cheeks turn bright red when he gets cold, which is somthing he hates to be teased about.

Personality: Jack acts very confident in himself, even though he truthfully doesn't have much real confidince in himself. He hates it when people say he doesn't know much, because he is gifted in science and math, though know one in Six seems to care. He loves jokes, but he often laughs too easily, or at inoappropiote[man, I stink at spelling...] moments. Because of this, he doesn't take much seriuosly.
It takes a while for him to trust anyone, as he has had bad experinces. He doesn't accept people as "friends." He loves food, especially fruits. He hates to sleep, so he often is up late.

History: He loved his dog, Rusty, more than anything in the world. This is why he was crushed when a Peacekeeper shot him when he was 11. Rusty was one his few friends. His father was gone by the time he was a month old, and his mom died when he was 5. He and his brother were then sent to live with their aunt. Unfortanutly, his brother, Sam, started to..."hang out with the wrong people", and they where both rejected by their aunt.
Jack made friends in the town he ran away to. The reason that Jack doesn't trust people is because his first friend, Victor, beat him up for fun, and his second friend Leo, spread lies about him. He does still have one friend, Amanda, who is the only reason he bother to try to win.


Weapon: Jack is good with knifes and swords, but is bad with almost every other weapon.

District Token: Jack's token is a chewed up purple sock that was Rusty's favorite toy.

Strategy:

I am really excited for this RPG because I LOVE the Hunger Games!

NAME:Patrick Fitzgerald
GENDER:Male
age: 14
District: 6
Appearance:Patrick is an average sized white kid, about 5'7". He has short dark brown hair, brown eyes and a perfectly white smile. Most people make fun of his height, but if he gets in the arena he will prove that height is not the best feature.
Personality: He is one of the bravest people in district 6. Most people in the district would not trust leaving anything by him because when they come back it will be gone and so will he. Most people fear him because of his ability with a knife.
History: Patrick has a lot of ground to cover with the capitol. When he was 5 years old, his older brother was drafted into the hunger games. His brother was Patrick's hero. When He watched the ambush take his 12 year old brother out he was crushed. Patrick swore that he would get his revenge.
Weapon: Patrick can throw a knife a mile with dead on accuracy, he can slice things with it and he can easy use a bow, but put a sword in his hands and he will die in an hour.
District Token: Patrick's token is an action figure of a dinosaur that was given to him when he was 3 years old.
Strategy: Sleep, eat and hunt.
