The Sandbox RP. Do not make OP stuff... This applies to you as well SF.

The Story: As any regular day, the Plastic "Empire" and the Royal Ant Hive/United Bug Protectorate were in their normal Cold War. Due to the tensions between them, fighting broke out near the Hive and peacekeepers rushed to stop it, but arrived late, only to find some of the Arachnos devouring both sides.
Angered at this, it sparked a war between the Plastic "Empire" and the Hive/Protectorate against the Arachnos Tribes. However, the tensions were still high, and the President Plaztec refused an alliance with the H/P. With nearly waging a war on 2 fronts, the H/P was forced to call out to their allies, to find them as well in the war. The mice newcomers, currently unknown, were unprepared to see that the cats had followed them. As if it weren't bad enough, a rogue snake joined the battle. The mice were in a war on 2 fronts, and as the cats allies with the snake and the Arachnos Tribes, the war spirals out of control...

I would almost suggest making everyone be part of the Treasure Hunters' League.

I personally will probably join either the United Bug Protectorate or the Royal Ant Hive. NOot now, though, I'm tired and have no time to make an entry.

I would join if I had time (also away for the next week)...

Maybe if I get a chance once I come back I can submit an app, but no promises.

We need at least 1 from each... I figured that SF, if he joined, would make a Treasure Hunter so he can turn on us...

WASPS CANNOT SHOOT STINGERS.

SOunds balanced, as long as it has a significant chance of devouring you while you're trying to control. Not to mention the fleas it's infested with would constantly try to drive you out of their territory.

The Giant:
Highest height recorded on these creatures is six feet.
Comes in various colors from pitch black, dark-brown, olive, tan, pale, and white.
Is extremely destructive though studies have amounted that they are weak to some really crazy things like bee stings all the way to plant pollen.

Japanese Giant Hornet


Something that big would have to be a gunship.

Maybe a Japanese Smaller-than-Giant-but-bigger-than-regular Wasp?

Just go with a muddauber or cicada killer.

If you have any questions about any insect belonging to Order Hymenoptera or need an idea for a specific type of insect from said Order, I will be happy to share my absurdly vast store of knowledge of that area.

I've already looked it up, that's why I decided it would have to be a gunship.

No applications yet?

I will, but I am still rather busy and have little time to devote here. I believe my business will end tomorrow or the day after.
