The Story of XM-01

Post by Gamma V on Sat Sep 21, 2013 3:44 pm

I'd like for my first RP to serve as an introduction of XM-01 to the canon.

XM-01 is an experimental Metallix-type Badnik who was meant to be Dr. Eggman's ultimate fighting robot and the successor to Metal Sonic.  Unfortunately for the bad doc, XM-01 ended up with a couple flaws that made him unsuitable for combat.  The first was a Program Configuration Error, a glitch in the robot's programming that caused his data-gathering protocols to be overly dominant and dwarf out his combat protocols.  This glitch, naturally, caused the robot to be extremely curious.  This curiosity resulted in XM-01 just wandering away from Eggman's base to explore the outside world.  An eventual encounter with a non-Anthro dog that resulted in the animal's accidental death caused XM to develop a disdain for death, rendering him pacifistic.  Another fatal flaw was that his Chaos Reactor, a component that would allow him to harness Chaos Emeralds, was unstable.  Overuse of Chaos Energy or too many Emeralds had the potential of overloading the robot's circuits and potentially destroying him.

XM will be introduced as a wanderer who is on the run from both Eggman and GUN.  The former wants him back for repairs and reprogramming, while the latter wants him destroyed.
Above is an image of what XM-01 looks like.  Many people are deceived by his fearsome appearance, believing him to be no different from other Badniks.  Still, there should be someone who can look beyond his appearance and status as a Badnik and see him for the gentle soul he really is.

Feel free to discuss further details of XM's story in this thread.

As I said, I want to both help you out and to see more RPs that last, so I'll be in on this for sure.

Since all RPs happen one post at a time, my first suggestion is to plan out how you're going to begin the story, since you already have a basic plot thought out. One too many times, I've personally had a good idea without a way to start it.

Second, you may want to put a profile for XM in the Character Bios section if you haven't already. It'll be easier for people to respond if they know as much as possible about him.

Sorry if I seem to be treating you like a first-timer, by the way. I'm just not sure exactly how much experience you have at this.

I'm wondering if we could bring in a character who is essentially a walking Eggman tech database.  She could be a key in helping Team Rebel find out more about XM-01, as well as maybe helping XM-01 find out more about himself.  If it's alright, I'd like to write this character as Nebula's creation.

Okay. But just a heads-up: Nebula always gives her robots acronym names. Linda is the most obvious, but some more examples are:

-Smart House And Retriever of Occupant Necessities (S.H.A.R.O.N.)
-Robotic Ultratemporal Frequency Utility System (R.U.F.U.S.)
-Portable Electronic Personnel Profile and Evidence Recorder (P.E.P.P.E.R.)
-Multifaceted Intralingual Translation Software Utilizing Knowledge Integration (M.I.T.S.U.K.I.)

...plus T.R.A.C.I., L.E.R.O.Y. (those two don't have acronyms yet) and a ton of others that I made up a long time ago and never used. So pick a name and I'll try to make an acronym that fits.

I just came up with Intelligent Robotnik Information System or I.R.I.S.  I'm thinking Iris could be a fairly new creation, and maybe she could be a true android.

Wow, I forgot to post for a while. Yes, I believe that will work. I'll do my next post for the RP and see where it goes from there.
