Plot Summary
HUNTER X HUNTER: THE EXAM BEGINS

"Fearsome monsters..Exotic creatures..Vast Riches..Hidden Treasures..Evil enclaves..Unexplored Lands..The word unknown holds magic and some incredible people are drawn to that magic. They are known as Hunters!"



LOOKING FOR ONE REPLACEMENT. IF YOU CAN MOVE REALLY FAST YOU MAY STILL BE ABLE TO ENTER THE TOURNAMENT. THIS WILL LIKELY BE FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS. ANY QUESTIONS FEEL FREE TO ASK.

https://www.rpgcrossing.com/forumdisplay.php?f=17769


Your ambition, your sense of adventure, your desire, your rage, your greed calls out to you. You want more and whatever your motives are you know that obtaining a Hunters license opens up doors that remain closed to the average citizen. This year there was a formal application to declare your interest in becoming a hunter. It was an odd change but now and then the Association liked to mix things up. Many thought that this was a joke or a test and if you filled it out you might fail before you started. An official release from the Hunter's Association confirmed the legitimacy of the application form putting to rest any suspicions. By putting pen to paper all those days ago you took the first step on your journey to becoming a hunter!






The Train


The entire station stunk of sweat and gasoline. It had taken you almost a week to get here and you have already made it farther then most who tried out for the exam. You found the secret location or at least the transportation to the secret location of the exams. This is where the man in dark robes who called himself a navigator led you. One by one you are let on to the awaiting train. As you enter a young woman slaps a bracelet on to your wrist that when closed lights up with a number. This is your test number and how they will keep track of you. An empty seat by a window beckons you and you sit down placing your stuff next to you. There are several others around you. A few moments pass before an old man wearing a conductors uniform enters the room. "Ladies and gentlemen we will be departing shortly. I'll kindly ask you to join me to the last the car at the back of the train. You may gather your things but don't take too long. Once the train starts moving the doors will be locked and you will not be allowed entry." With that he departs.

Moments after he disappears through to the next car you hear someone shout something from outside "Man it's a good thing we got off that train. All those suckers staying on are gonna fail huh? Probably get killed or something... His friend who looked a little older then the teenager slaps him hard on the back of the head almost immediately. Shut up man! You trying to tell the whole world? The more of them on the train the less competition for us."

Some on the train exchange a few worried glances and begin to head off, a few remain seated and another few make their way the back of the train...


So this is where we will pick up with the story once the game gets going. Your first challenge will be deciding what to do on the train. Some of you may indeed fail the exam but there's always next year! However not being a hunter doesn't mean you still can't be part of the story. Dying is also real possibility. The hunters life is a dangerous one.

Hunter Exam Application
Name: Jacob Yelrin
Alias/Nickname if any: Five Finger
Description: Jacob has grey hair and a short lithe frame. He tends to keep his face covered which some consider dodgy but in truth his nose just gets cold and covering it became a habit.
 His largest other defining feature is that he has five fingers and a thumb on each hand.
Age: 15
Gender: Male
What type of hunter are you looking to be? Head or Crime Hunter. Its what he is good at.

 
Tell us a bit about yourself:
Casual theivery of those percieved as richer than he is never caused him much in the way of moral quandries, and he stuck to this for a few years early on. However the crew he rolled with moved up to bigger things, thug work and occationally making people vanish. Jacob started these jobs as a lookout, but eventually he was talked into using the knife itself. No one expects the cute little 11 year old boy to shove a shiv in your back, after all.
Such crews, ones too small to even have a name, rarely last long. His crew was hit about three months ago during a sweep. He and two others were the only ones to escape, each fleeing to find new places for themselves.
With almost all those who knew of his criminal life gone and not wanting to start again at the bottom of a second crew, Jacob decided to check out the Hunter exams. Perhaps he can use his talents to earn money a bit more legally next time? Hunters always seem to be rich as hell after all...
Question 1: Your best friend is in danger and so is the client you have been hired to protect. Who do you save?
Both if possible, friend if not. Friends are rare and precious, clients come and go. Don't have any right now so not a real problem.
Question 2: You have been chasing someone for three days. You know they are headed to a small village to deliver a dangerous package. You have lost track of them and come to a fork in the road. The sign post reads " ACE CITY THIS WAY" and the wooden arrow points left. You know that the small village is down the other path from Ace city. As you are about to leave the wind blows and now the arrow spins and points right? Which way do you go?
Well, if I knew the way before seeing the sign why would I change my mind just cos a stupid broken sign turned up? Trust my gutt and go toward the village.

Is ACE CITY written upside down? If so, go that way.

How do you feel about having someone who's fairly new to the system? By new I mean that I played one adventure on a sheet I didn't even make, and that was years ago. I might not be able to post, depending on deadline (I recently started recruiting for my own game), but I've wanted to experiment with this system for a while.

Thanks.

Hunter Exam Application
Name: Frederick Wolffe
Alias/Nickname if any: Freddy
Attach photo: Freddy is tall and lean with piercing gray eyes and unkempt brown hair. He favors tough clothes in natural colors.
Age: 16
Gender: Male
Tell us a bit about yourself:
Freddy's parents are park rangers in a large national park in the US and Freddy grew up knowing only the woods, the streams, the mountains and the animals. His father once tried the hunter exam and failed, but kept telling his son about the adventure and all the things a hunter could do. This created a spark in Freddy that later led to him seeking out the hunter exam.
As a person Freddy may come off as distant and hard to approach, but when youve grown to know him it becomes apparent that he also is loyal to a fault, very dedicated and able to withstand hardships that would make most grown men crumble.
Powers(quirks): , immunity (sleep), Overly high constitution (2 point defense tradeoff if allowed)
What type of hunter are you looking to be? Beast
Question 1: Your best friend is in danger and so is the client you have been hired to protect. Who do you save?
Loyalty is one of Freddy's most defining characteristics so he save his friend.
Question 2: You have been chasing someone for three days. You know they are headed to a small village to deliver a dangerous package. You have lost track of them and come to a fork in the road. The sign post reads " ACE CITY THIS WAY" and the wooden arrow points left. You know that the small village is down the other path from Ace city. As you are about to leave the wind blows and now the arrow spins and points right? Which way do you go?
When in doubt trust your nose. Freddy would go down the path that smelled "right".

I have no problem with new players. Just keep in mind I'm making some minor alterations to suit the flavor of the world.

@Leniyuhl: It's up to you but you can secret your three abilities if you want. It depends on how much you want the others to know about you.

Also, as far as power creation goes I will work with each of you to try and get the feel right and without breaking anything too much. So with that said would you rather find out later what type of NEN you have or at the start this way you can begin thinking and building powers earlier instead of taking time out during the campaign?

@Anael, secreted that which wouldnt be somewhat apparent to others.
As for knowing about my Nen it would depend on if knowing it would make it harder to roleplay discovering the nen. If you think it wouldnt hurt I would like to know that ahead of time.

I don't think it would make it harder since you already know it exists in the game anyways. You just wont be as surprised when the time comes to unveil your type. PM or secret in your post 3 d100 rolls.

Hunter Exam Application
Name: Gloria Mupondwe
Alias/Nickname if any: Gumshoe Glory
Description: A slight young woman who seems of average physical health, with a slightly darker shade of caramel colored skin along with sharp, hazel eyes. There is nothing which stands out about her appearance apart from the mass of jet black hair adorning her head, seemingly groomed into a thick and full shoulder length tangle. More often than not can be seen in casual clothing consisting of sturdy, well-worn sneakers, torn jeans, dark colored shirts and a patched up blue jacket.
Age: 18
Gender: Female
Tell us a bit about yourself:
Career: I'm supposed to be working on this fancy criminal law scholarship, but the classes are so damn boring! It can never compare to the feeling of actually hitting the streets and doing something with your own two hands. So to stave off the encroaching insanity, I did some moonlighting as a private detective. Always had a knack for finding lost things, so I figured I might as well start making a profit out of my little hobby. Keeps my mind sharp too, which is a plus, because Lord knows I'm not getting any stimulation from the university.
Home life: Despite living in a neighborhood of broken laws and shattered dreams, life was pretty normal for my family. A dad, two little sisters, a dog. The university's just a couple of bus stops and a train ride away from our apartment, so I still get to enjoy a nice, home cooked meal before heading to class. I try to help dad out where I can. Poor guy's always stressing about money, and even though the detective gig's been bringing in a bit more cash, things are always pretty tight budget wise. Maybe if mom hadn't decided to get her stupid self thrown in jail, things would be different. But they aren't, so she can rot in her cell while the rest of us keep on living our lives.
Personality: Fantastic, and anybody who says otherwise can take a hike. I know what I'm worth, and I don't like getting short-changed. I'd say I'm a pretty good listener too, especially when people are poring their guts out. You never know what somebody's gonna let slip if they blab for long enough. Oh, and I love puzzles, can't get enough of them. Can't stress that enough, my mind's always buzzing and I'm in constant need of something to focus it on or I go stir-crazy. Fortunately, the entire world's filled with all kinds of puzzles, especially the kind people make when they have something to hide; there's nothing I love more than pitting myself against the schemes of others and seeing through their game. I live for challenges like that, and I don't give up until I've uncovered the truth. Some people might call some of my methods 'unsavory', or say that I'm 'obsessed' or whatever. I try to ignore it, results are the only thing that matter in the end.
Motivations: I hate being kept in the dark. Absolutely, positively, one-hundred percent despise coming across something and failing to decipher it. I don't need to get lost in the tiny details like the exact number of pi, but I'll be damned if I don't know what pi is and what its used for. I always need to be prepared so that I can never let someone pull a fast one on me, no matter how innocent they claim they are. No matter how much I wished they were. Everyone deserves that certainty in their life, even if they're not capable of reaching the truth themself. That's fine by me, I'll reach it for them and make sure they have their closure.
Goals: To find the greatest mysteries of the underbelly of our society and crack them wide open. Thieves, thugs, murderers, and everyone else who thinks they're clever enough to get away with violating other people's rights, I'm going to show them all just how wrong they are, and show the rest of the world that there's no such thing as a perfect crime.
What type of hunter are you looking to be?: Crime Hunter
Question 1: Your best friend is in danger and so is the client you have been hired to protect. Who do you save?
The client, of course. Friends are nice and all, but a woman's word is her bond. I don't flake on contracts.
Question 2: You have been chasing someone for three days. You know they are headed to a small village to deliver a dangerous package. You have lost track of them and come to a fork in the road. The sign post reads " ACE CITY THIS WAY" and the wooden arrow points left. You know that the small village is down the other path from Ace city. As you are about to leave the wind blows and now the arrow spins and points right? Which way do you go?
I'd check what my map says and head in the direction of the village. What kind of question is this? What do you think I am, stupid?

What type of hunter are you looking to be? Choose one: Jackpot Treasure Blacklist
Question 1: Your best friend is in danger and so is the client you have been hired to protect. Who do you save?
Hmmm, tough question. My best friend is even stronger than I am, hard to think of him getting on trouble. Still, pick him anyday, then avenge my client by bringing whoever / whatever harmed him to justice
Question 2: You have been chasing someone for three days. You know they are headed to a small village to deliver a dangerous package. You have lost track of them and come to a fork in the road. The sign post reads " ACE CITY THIS WAY" and the wooden arrow points left. You know that the small village is down the other path from Ace city. As you are about to leave the wind blows and now the arrow spins and points right? Which way do you go?
First, have to examine the arrow and it's pivoting mechanism. It was designed to point a certain direction, so I would determine that atart point based on the limitations of the arrow's movement. Whichever direction it more smoothly locks into would be its original orientation, and would be the direction I would go

Due to the lack of anymore interest anyone who might still be interested just get me a completed application and you're in until the spots are filled.
Leniyuhl has already claimed a spot.

Finished the app.

Weird there isn't more interest. Hunter X Hunter world has a lot of possibilities.

Also: 3d100s, out of curiosity.

That should be it for my character as well.

Yeah, I really would have thought HxH + M&M would have caught more interest as a combination.
