    Aye, I'm Acidic. My friends know me as 'that weird girl who has a gundam in her purse' cause I always carry around a Burning Gundam MG with me. I got into Gundam and mecha in general with G-Fighter, it had been my favorite series until IBO came out. I've only built a small amount of gunpla (Three HGs; Char's MS-06S Zaku II, RX-78-2 Gundam, a Guard Frame and my Burning Gundam. And a Haro). I'm primarily a writer, words are my strong point and I'm in school specifically to hone that skill. My vocabulary is my strongest trait, I've been told, and when engrossed in my work I craft such beautiful sorrows. Also I'm that kind of trash to put a selfie in an intro thread.

    Well, hello everyone! It was a bit of a shock to see an email from Advent Destiny after all this time. I've heard of thread necromancy, but this is the first instance of forum necromancy I've heard of. Not complaining, though! 🙂 I'm DragonDaimyo, though if you've seen anyone on the internets named Hobbles or Hobbles 1822, that's my usual screen name these days. I got involved in the old Seed RPG way back in 2005, and had a blast of a time with this and other RP sites, mostly Gundam related. I had first watched Gundam Seed a few months before I found the site, and it was what got me into watching anime seriously (as opposed to whatever was on Cartoon Network). Don't watch nearly as much as I used to, but Seed still holds a special place in my heart because of it. That said, I am now very much a fan of Sword Art Online (Must. Watch. Alicization.), Attack on Titan, and a couple of others. Life itself has been crazy, though, as it's wont to be. When I started here I was studying computer science. Now, I'm a licensed CPA and I got married a year and a half ago. A lot of my gaming effort has gone into Star Wars Armada these days, though I still play some computer games like Battletech and Total War: Warhammer 2. I also play a lot of mobile games these days, with Fate Grand Order and Azur Lane being my mainstays. So yeah, really fun to see this back up and running! I'm looking forward to reconnecting with the old crowd and with some new faces! Fun times! 😃

    Hello I'm Andy. I used to be obsessed with Star Wars and we all know what a heap of burning garbage it's turned into. So hobbyless I went for months until I remembered I used to love Gundam when Wing was on toonami. I woke up the day after my birthday (no one got me anything) and decided I'd go buy myself a Gundam model. I grabbed Barbatos Lupus Rex because I thought it looked badass and absolutely fell in love with gunpla. I had built a tallgeese when I was about 12 but was to young to understand how to properly build it and I'm sure I did an awful job. So I wanted to learn more about the Rex I just built and found ibo...then watched it. Then freaked out because it was amazing and ever since I've been vacuuming up everthing Gundam for tge past year. I've built 30 or so Gunpla and recently got an airbrush rig so I've finally made it to the big boys. I don't really know what else to say....I'm dyslexic and bad at spelling so I'm sure that will come up. I went to film school to become a writer/director but that didn't pan out but I love creating stories and using my imagination. There are several Gundam series I can't stand SEED, OO, G, Build fighters ect. I really love the UC and a few outside of it....uhmm.....if you want to know anything else just ask ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ here's me in my normal suit

    Several people have indicated a keen interest in joining a Gundam RP. We are starting a new timeline here so jump in and let us know which you prefer. I would like to aim to start AND end the RP within a reasonable time frame. I propose that we give ourselves a deadline of 3 to 4 months to finish the arc, and then we can work on developing it further. But at the very least, we have to deal with the series of events within this time. This gives us a very visible end point and to drive the RP forward. This requires participants to be relatively active. I hope you are able to commit and sprint towards the end. Of course, the suggested time frame will be discussed and decided. We might even do a one month sprint if the group is committed to that. I plan to start a Cosmic Era RP as a continuation of the legal Advent Destiny RP, and also an RP in a separate timeline. My preference is towards the Universal Century timeline because it is more developed and we have a larger range of time span to choose from. For each RP, we will start once we hit 5 participants. For now, I won't do a poll but rather I want to hear out your preferences. Then we'll proceed to discuss the individual RPs in separate threads. CE RP: https://play.adventdestiny.com/topic/1482-cosmic-era-rp-planning/ I suggest we start post SEED and pre Destiny, maybe with some of the early events of Destiny such as the Armory One incident. I think we should avoid devastating events like the Break the World disaster. Starting post SEED reduces the advantage of ZAFT's mobile suit power since the Earth Alliance has developed its own mass production units by then. And the sceptre of the First Bloody Valentine War would be a useful backdrop. Characters could have been affected by the War to do or not do certain things. And instead of just a clear two-sided war between the Alliance and ZAFT, we could have smaller factions within each that contradicts the goals of the factions. Think Titans or Zeon rebels. UC RP: https://play.adventdestiny.com/topic/1483-universal-century-rp-planning/ For the UC timeline, we have a larger scope to work with. There's the One Year War, Gryps Conflict, the two Neo Zeon Wars, and the LaPlace Incident. All of which are great material to play with.

    Hi guys! I'd much prefer Cosmic Era since I'm more familiar with it (and nostalgia factor for the old AD things).

    I'm more inclined towards CE, for sure. I know nothing about UC.

    If able I'd like the UC timeline to be a few years after Char's Counter Attack but before LaPlace (UC0095). Also I'm only halfway through SEED but I can probably finish it in a couple weeks if I try.

    Yes I did mean Post Disaster, sorry. I'm actually only interested in doing UC (possibly PD) so anytime that's going count me in.

    Hey there @Acidic! Welcome to Advent Destiny. You have a pretty big purse. Or does your gunpla do yoga often? Glad you found your way here. It's always great meeting Gundam fans who are into writing.

    Hello. I'm Terra aka Tina. I love writing and role playing. I saw a post about this site and decided to come take a look. You guys have stuck around for some time huh? I'm not that familiar with mecha but it's a genre I want to try and explore. Looking forward to making new friends here.

    What a story! With the rise and fall of many great sites, it is rather encouraging to see independent sites like this making an attempt to stay true to their identity and preserving the content.

    This looks impressive. How many of you are still active though? I only see a few of you.
