Benedict here. From Battleborn.
So… this thread sort of evolved a while back from people just havin’ In-Character conversations as various people from Gearbox games to full stories and role playin’ in the Gearbox multiverse.
I should’ve probably changed the title a while back too… but I was too busy makin’ myself look pretty.

I was lookin’ up porn. This “Google” thing? Amazing… ANYWAY…
To all you ■■■■■ and hens out there who are absolutely in love with a Gearbox character, or characters, or just a Gearbox franchise in general, but are too shy to dress up at conventions… well… now’s your chance to role play and tell stories and generally just have fun with the various Gearbox franchises…
A few ground rules though… please pay attention as the rules have changed a bit.
Every post must be in character as a persona from a Gearbox game, or tell a story related to the Gearbox universe.
You MAY NOT break character or interrupt with chatter not related to yer story. The only time you may break character is if you need to say the name of your character, you know, in case people won’t get it otherwise. Keep it brief. Like just say the character name, or “As ________.”
Stories and characters must be a Gearbox owned property. It can be from any Gearbox owned property, but it must be a Gearbox property.
Original characters are acceptable, provided they are tied significantly to lore or characters from an actual Gearbox franchise. PLEASE NO MARY SUES. If ya write a Mary Sue, I’m gonna ignore ya. I mean it. Y’all have no idea how much that ruffles my feathers…
An occasional reference to somethin’ else is fine, but no lore or backstory from The X-Files, or System Shock, or Mass Effect, or other places. This thread is devoted to the Gearbox multiverse. Not other franchises. If ya write fan fiction or in character from another universe, I’m gonna ignore ya. Cuz yer breakin’ my rules!!!
Stories can be serious or silly. Posts can be serious or silly, provided they’re, and I can’t stress this enough, related to the Gearbox multiverse. I like bein’ a playful ■■■■■■■. Don’t make me go full ■■■■■■■.
HALF-LIFE - Gearbox produced Half Life: Opposing Force and Blue Shift. So characters and situations from the Half-Life franchise are acceptable.
Any questions PM me or one of the other RPers.
