  • About Us
    World of Remnant is an AU, post-Volume 3 roleplay. Opened in February of 2016, World of Remnant diverges from the Volume 3 storyline around the Fall of Beacon, with storyline changes that drive our site in a different direction. We constantly update with new canons as they are revealed in the RWBY series, as well as lore updates as we learn more about Remnant's world. We boast an expanded lore and a dedicated administrative team that gives depth to Remnant for a roleplay perspective.

    With an 18+ community, World of Remnant boasts an atmosphere of 'quality over quantity' in our apps, posts, and plots; we have no word count, though it is expected that members will post healthy and thorough posts without being locked down by the dreaded 'word count' of their post. With a simplified combat system that uses no stats, World of Remnant remains a story-focused, alternate-universe timeline with RWBY canons and a plethora of original characters.

The newsletter has a lot of information that was added, so if you haven't checked it out, make sure you do so you're up to date on things!

    06.07.2018: After much long and arduous work, World of Remnant has finally revealed its newest skin, called Let's Just Live. The new skin is part of a fresher, more advanced layout compared to our old layout, while still retaining the readability and contrast our other layouts were well-known for. There are three more skins planned for the next series: This Life Is Mine, featuring Weiss Schnee, Like Morning Follows Night featuring Blake, and Armed And Ready featuring Yang. We do not have any tentative release dates for these upcoming skins, but stay tuned for them regardless!

    The second term has begun at all academies, and after a short break between terms, students are gearing up to attend the 41st Vytal Festival. This year, it is hosted on the neutral island of Vytal, as opposed to being hosted in one of the four Kingdoms.

 Rusty Barkins Combat & Semblance Abilities

Combat Abilities (4x basic, 3x advanced), Semblance Upgrades


Basic Abilities

- Bayonet Strike
Rusty changes Quicksilver from rifle to sword mid-strike, allowing him to move from ranged to melee combat without breaking pace. Usable by Rusty | Solo Ability | Basic

- Concussive Slash
Rusty rapidly releases concussive blasts from Quicksilver's blade form, providing the weapon a burst of speed for a slash more powerful than he can achieve with pure strength. Usable by Rusty | Solo Ability | Basic

- Elemental Slash
With Quicksilver in sword form, Rusty triggers the current dust enhancement and gives the blade a quick flick, releasing the energy in the form of a short-lived blade of energy which travels 2' before dissipating, allowing him to strike an opponent positioned just outside of his reach. Usable by Rusty | Solo Ability | Basic

- Disengage
While engaged in melee combat, Rusty makes use of repeated concussive blast created by red dust to create distance between himself and his opponent, propelling them in opposite directions and preventing his opponent from giving chase. Usable by Rusty | Solo Ability | Basic

Advanced Abilities:
- Suppressive Fire
Rusty opens fire upon a single target, filling the air around them with bullets using either blue or yellow dust. Doing so, he hinders their movement at the cost of direct damage in order to create an opportunity for he or an ally to close for melee combat. Usable by Rusty | Solo Ability | Advanced

- Take Aim
Rusty sacrifices rapid fire for accuracy, placing several rounds into the same position on an opponent. By focusing his aim in this way, Rusty is able to build up on the influence of red and blue dust, either knocking down the target or further numbing the target area with a thin layer of ice. Usable by Rusty | Solo Ability | Advanced

- Recharge
Rusty takes advantage of his red dust rounds to unleash a hailstorm of concussive rounds directly at Davina, allowing her to rapidly charge her semblance's stored energy while temporarily holding himself in place to minimise recoil from rapid fire. Usable by Rusty and Davina | Duo Ability | Advanced

Semblance Upgrades

One-Man Party:
Rusty has become familiar enough with his semblance to summon and manipulate two clones simultaneously. While the clones may act individually, only one clone can be summoned per individual, and each individual has its own recovery time.

One-Man Team:
Requires One-Man Party and one other Semblance Upgrade. Regular practice manifesting his semblance for both combat and mundane purposes has enhanced Rusty's ability to make use of his semblance, allowing him to manifest a third clone, allowing him to approach the combat potential of a full team, if only for a brief instant.

Familiar Fighter:
While Rusty continues to control his clones with minimal conscious thought, having the subject present at the time provides a more detailed understanding of their fighting style, allowing the clones to act more effectively when acting in conjunction with the person they are based upon.

Cooperative Clones:
A deep understanding of the workings of cooperative actions Rusty has practiced allows him to carry them out with a clone of the counterpart as well as he could with the actual person. While he understands his own role in the attack and how his allies interact with him, though, his knowledge of the interaction between others in the process is lacking, limiting this to team attacks with only one partner.
