Modern Day Alchemist is a Play By Post Game set in the modern day Fullmetal Alchemist World. It has a vast range of characters from a Kid Hero to an Ax Crazy Maniac with Insane Troll Logic. The plot is mixed up into arcs with main plot... Stuff happening in missions. Revolving around the Amestrians, mostly the Briggs Brigade in their endeavors, while everyone else get their chance for a spotlight. Occasionally.

Each of the countries have real world equivalents. Amestris is Germany, Drachma is Soviet Russia, Carraig is Ireland/Switzerland, Creta is England, Aerugo is Japan, Xing is China, the Ciel Dominion is a conglomerate of Italy/Scandinavia/Canada/Austrailia and Esparia is the Hispanic nations tossed together.

Modern Day Alchemist provides examples of:

  • Affably Evil: Ayden Derocha and Aurelius count as some, they certainly know how to charm their way through the masses, while murdering them at the same time.
  • Alliterative Name: Subject AA/Akiha Akihiro.
    • Einherjar Egil
    • Angelika Arnwald
  • All Your Base Are Belong to Us: That's how RIOTE, the resident anti-villain organization, popped up. In a blaze of explosions and an announcement to Amestrians and the alchemists by Aurelius, after a betrayal by the Fuhrer Hild and some explosions in some major Amestrian cities, such as Central City, and even the President's palace.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Anyone who holds a position of power usually got it because of their ability.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Anyone else who holds a position of power without establish how Badass their character is, becomes this. The Generals of Amestris fulfill this trope AND the one above. How, you ask? They kicked enough ass to get their positions, and started kicking even more asses after that
  • Badass: Just about everyone on this forum who can hold their own in a world filled with chaos, multiple organizations and/or nations trying to control the world.
  • Barehanded Blade Block: Nearly every character with automail, some form of bodily enhancement, many homonculi, and those who catch swords.
  • Barrier-Busting Blow: It happens quite a number of times, usually not for the sake of horror but for the sake of fun and sheer ridiculousness. Until Hei does it on some poor Amestrian NPCs . . .
  • Big Eater: Salazar Masu or 'Sal', otherwise known as the Homunculus 'Gluttony.'
  • Body Count Competition: Without a doubt, Hei and Nikolaus in their many attempts to outdo each other as bitter rivals.
  • Break the Cutie: Subject AA, despite having her body already experimented on ONCE, was recaptured into the Project where she was borne from and completely redone. Add to that the influence of Sloth beginning to weigh in on her mind...
  • Critical Psychoanalysis Failure: The character, Red, has his character app Personality exemplifying this trope; he sends three different psychologists into the madhouse, by talking them to insanity, and attempting to kill one of them. And he's a creepy-as-everything psychopathic doll from the 1800s.
  • Combat Medic: Nikita Cora, of Briggs. She can heal you and kick your ass at the same time.
    • Anyone who uses Alkahestry could possibly be The Medic, but more often than not, those who can use Alkahestry can usually kick a fair amount of ass.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: Lots of it
  • Crazy Awesome: Oh dear lord. WHERE DO WE EVEN BEGIN? Let's start with Spade Aeries. Then we progress in JET BLACK. Move over to Creta to see Dietrich Von Vermont, and his Royal Task Force. We then head up North to Drachma to find Vanity and Ivanka Kolokovsky. But all this pales in comparison to Nikolaus Stuka of Amestris
  • Crazy Survivalist: Alisa Donnikova tends to plan to survive most incidents, and gets out of things that would be exceptionally difficult to survive with little to no worries.
  • Fundraiser Carnival: An entire arc of the story was based around one of these. Ended with an F4 Tornado, the fairground being razed, a fight on top of a Ferris Wheel, and loads more FUN! And a Dragon . . . Okay, a Draconian Chimera, but still.
  • Hardboiled Detective: Menoitos, though he tends to suffer Cuteness Overload whenever within sight of a kitty!!
  • Hates Being Touched: Isabella Galicia will most likely force a pole of some kind through some place if you touch her. Please don't touch her.
  • Ice Queen: Boy does Reila exemplify this A LOT. From scornfully lambasting Daigoro for his faked betrayal and recklessness all the way to shooting down Spade HARD. Doesn't help she leads Briggs, the coldest place in Amestris.
  • Immune to Bullets: Not so much immune, but Daigoro and Reila are able to catch said bullets in midair with magnetic forces.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Present and alive. Brigadier General Tataki Masu is an Amestrian example. The others are from Aerugo. (And elsewhere.)
  • Kill It with Fire: Every fire Alchemist on the site embodies this trope.
  • Kill It with Ice: As above.
  • King Arthur: Not just a reference, Sablya actually BELIEVES herself to be a reincarnation of King Arthur. She even has the swords and everything.
  • The Lancer: To Dai is Murazar, compared to his honor bound altruistic ways, Murazar is sociopathic and malevolent in comparison.
  • Large Ham: Jet Black tends to make the occasional speech. No, he tends to make a LOT of occasional speeches. EVERY. TIME. HE. SPEAKS.
    • Arguably, anyone who makes a speech in the latest mission concerning RIOTE's re-emergence to power in Drachma: They're usually long-winded motivational speeches from people on ALL THE SIDES IN THE WAR. It's gotten to the point that the event has been called "MISSION: Braveheart" as an in-joke by members.
