    Team JWSS was the only color team name i could come up with. Project oc is something i've been working for quite some time.

    I don't really think Jewels works as a color name. I'm pretty sure there was a list with literal thousands of color team names somewhere, so you could always take a peak at that.


    Yeh ok but what the heck is project oc???

    In fairness, Jewels is an OK if rather dull name, though personally I would have gone with JWLS for JEWL for the abbreviation. 

    as for what "Project OC" is, i'd imagine it's well, making OCs. not that for most people that needs a project name unto itself. it's just what we do.  Incedently, talking of Projects, here's a preveiw of what i'm working on right now. 


    Her hair just wouldn’t sit right in its bun. Commander Violet Braddock of the Atlas armed forces sighed as she pulled the coil loose and starting tying it again, keeping her eyes locked on the reflection in her mirror, Today was the big day, and as an officer in professional standing, she was not about to attend the beginning of her first independent commission leading a major project looking anything less than perfect by the standards of the regulation book. Gripping the pin in her teeth as she glared at herself as, behind her in the glass, she saw the door open and allowed inside Sergeant Selene Asheford, an Atlas Specialist under her command who for the time being was also filling in as her Aide-de-camp.

    Braddock had selected her for the role not only due to her being the only other woman in her unit, but also because she was the most competent. She younger woman seemed to lack any strong emotions, was polite, cold and respectful and didn’t question instructions. At the moment, her hair was already in the regulation braid, with her Faunus rabbit years also tied back in a ponytail band to match. Seeing her superior struggling in front of the mirror, she placed the computer tablet she had been carrying down on the sideboard and walked forwards “ With permission, Commander ma’am?”

    Understanding, Braddock relaxed her hands, allowing Selene to take the hairpin and, in a few quick twists and no apparent effort, getting her superiors hair into a perfect bun on the first try. Looking at herself in profile on both sides in the mirror, Violet had to admit to being impressed, as she could have been used as the textbook photograph for the regs, a comment she made as much to her aide. Selene’s response was a shrug  “It’s a knack i’ve acquired Ma’am. I didn’t have much use for my spare time in the academy, so I practiced everything in the manual”

    And indeed she had. Selene Asheford had qualified top of her class, as Braddock well knew from the service record she had received. It was an open secret that she was the illegitimate daughter of General Verdan Asheford, a bastardy made even more… tricky in Atlas high society by the fact that said daughter was a Faunus, but Selene had at the least been sent into the family trade, and had resolved to get one over on the students who bullied her for her species in a curious way; she had decided to be better than them. In her skills, mannerisms and behaviour, Selene Asheford was in many ways the perfect soldier. However her background as well as her cold personality had lead her to being assigned to work under Braddock, who had enough of a reputation working with specialists with unusual natures that all such cases for the past few years had gravitated naturally under her command.

    I don't know if neon can be a color name then jewels should work it makes you think of a number of colors but it dose bring up colors.  the team spelling is something you can really stretch as well take crdl and Jnpr.


    I really enjoy paying with in these rules I work at a call center and this is a fun mental game to play between calls. heres a new team I am working on instead of stories I decide to do a team crdl with an animal theme.


    the team is called Honey (HONY) all the team members are based on animal with honey in there name. 

    1.  inspiration Honey Bee  character name  Honey Brown  aka Honey B (yes I went for the pun)

    2. inspiration  a Pallid Honeyguide  a species of honey bird. Name: Oren Flare.  This one is a bit more of a stretch. The name oren can mean pale also pine tree,   I am using pine tree for the colors green.  Flares can be used to signal a location or guide.

    3. inspiration Honey Badger Name: Nickels ratel or nickolas Ratel,  trying to use nickel as the color so a silver gray. ratel is anther name for Honey badger

    4. Inspiration Honey bear.  name Yami Kuma:   Yami is japanese for darkness kuma is japanese for bear.

    Neon is at least linked to a specific type of color spectrum. The name is intrinsically tied to the idea of color. The color rule can't be stretched so far that you can say "Oh, this thing can have some kind of color, it's clearly a color name." because everything makes you think of colors. Most things that physically exist in this world have color, but you wouldn't see anybody try to use Team DOOR as a name just because a door is a thing that has a color. Jewels are the same. They don't make you think of anything specific enough that they could be used for a color name. Team FNKY is probably about as far as you could stretch it, and even that at least makes you specifically think of a mixture of bright colors. Jewels can literally be clear and colorless, or just about fucking anything.

    "Jewel tones." They're a thing in design. Rich, bold colors, like ruby reds, deep blues, emerald greens. Good for people with cool complexions, if we're talking fashion specifically.

    Geeze. I don't think Kuro working on his OCs is that much of a "lame" thing. Seriously, heck off with that, guys.


    Definitely post the OCs here once you've completed some of 'em. I'll give them a look.

    #33646764 - 1 week ago

    Name: Luke Darvill

    Gender: Male

    Has black hair, white skin, and is 28 years.

    Weapon of Choice: Umbrella, which turns into a Sniper Rifle. The umbrella is bullet proof. He carries it with him whenever he can in case of a possible Grimm attack or some people get a little TOO drunk.<>


    Personality: Very gentleman like and intelligent. Doesn't like talking to many people, and will avoid many conversations if at all possible. 

    Skills: Using his Sniper Rifle, he can fire from over 1200 yards. He is great at dodging attacks and is most skilled in fighting a large number of people. He uses a mix of fire, gravity, and lightning dust in his Sniper Rifle.

    Aura Semblance: Intelligence
    Luke's intelligence is above anyone else's. He can calculate the precise angle to fire his weapon from 1200 yards away in a split second. He can calculate how, when, and where someone is going to move in an instant. He is so intelligent, he can tell where someone was a day to two weeks ago by looking at their skin and clothes.

    History: Luke grew up and was enrolled in Beacon with his brother, Nathan. Their team name was NBLE (Noble.) Luke and Nathan were put into an agency to fight the Grimm, but mostly do things the government wouldn't know about. Luke stopped the assassination of the head of the Schnee company, and stopped a Grimm attack from above.

    Likes: His brother, Dogs, Space, and Cake.

    Dislikes: Jacques Schnee, many teams at Beacon (including RWBY), and the current White Fang.<>

    Hey! Just a head's up, your characters have to have some sort of color or color meaning in either their first or last names, and the team name must also evoke a color. It's the #1 rule Monty posted a few years back for OC makers. 


    I'd also suggest being more specific about his appearance. Hair length? Eye color? Tone of skin ("white" just makes me think of a sickly ivory color, try something more specific like "pale peach"), body type/build, attire, etc. 


    Your character is incredibly bare bones, and I'm not a huge fan of OCs that are in direct cahoots with the main protagonists/antagonists since we've yet to get the full story on why they're the way they are so most of our assumptions are only ever non-conforming until proven otherwise. 


    Please try to be a little more descriptive and take the color rules into application.

    Luke is a derivitive of "Lucas," which itself means "bright," "light," or "shining." So it fits the color rule. Darvill is a little trickier, but it's a variant of Darvell, which means "eagle town." Eagles tend to have brown or gold feathers (+ white if we're talking bald eagles). So that could also be a strong case for the color rule. Either way, the name still fits.
