Aradis Chronicles: Quest for the Sacred Gems

According to legend, a long time ago there was only gods who lived on the world of Aradis. There were three major gods: Terra, the god of the earth, elements, and all things physical, Anima, the goddess of magic, morality, and all things ethreal, and their father, a being only known in lore as "The Original". After The Original created Terra and Anima, they then created the minor gods. Terra's creations were Ignis, god of fire, Aqua, goddess of water, Ventus, god of wind, Solum, god of earth, and Tonitrui, god of lightning. Anima's creations were Lux, goddess of light, Nox, god of darkness, Mentem, god of the mind, and Tempus, god of time.

And yet, even after creating the minor gods, the two major god were still not satisfied. And so, is it said that they created life on the world of Aradis, and along with it, the final two minor gods, Vita, the goddess of life and nature, and Spiritus, goddess of spirits, death, and the afterlife. They were happy..for a time. However, they soon came to realize that these creatures were not ideal, as for every good deed that was enacted was a sin that countered it. So, Terra and Anima left the world and put the minor gods, now known as the Patrons, in charge of looking after the world. But when they left, as a parting gift they created the Divine Gems, which had the power to either bring a golden age of properity or thrust the world into chaos. Of these gems, there was also the Sacred Gems, which held the power of the the god themselves; however, they were sealed away, for generations far in the future who are much more prepared for their power to use...

At least, that's what the history books say. The land of Aradis as it is now is a land inhabited by four races: The Humans, Gaians, Psyclos, and Velox. Aradis' technology is mostly similer to that of Earth's in the mid-1800's, but many advancements have been made over the past few decades thanks to the Divine Gems. These gems come in many different colors, and are used for three main purposes: a power source, enchanments, and direct magic. Some gems are used essentially as batteries to power steampunk technology, except unlike batteries they never run out of power (they can give something a certain amount of power at a constant rate, but never give any more, or any less). Others are expended to give items special powers related to said gem. While lastly others are used more directly for spell casting.

Recently, there have been rumors of geologists descoving a large Divine Gem some where on the edge of Aradis. Some belive it to be one of the Sacred Gems spoken of in legend. Due to the rumors, the Parliment of Aradis has hired several able-bodied mercenaries (or anyone else willing to go) to investigate this. You, as the player, are one of the people who either was hired or volunteered to go and investigate this large gem at the edge of Aradis. Little does either you or the Parliment know, that the events that will take place there will change the history of Aradis...forever.

The Continents:

Naku: The center continent in Aradis, and home to the capital, Aradine. Aradine is a large prosperous city, home to the Aradis Paraliment, which rules over Aradis. Besides Aradine, most other towns on Naku are small fishing towns along the coasts. Overall, Naku's population is fairly diverse, but Humans still hold the majority of the population here. Naku is mainly either mountainous or forested, save for the tundra on the nothern coast and the plains on the southern coast. North of Aradine lies a large volcanicly active region known as the Scourged Lands, which most people tend to avoid entering at all costs due to it's danger.

Amaratsu: The northeastern continent in Aradis, and the second largest, only being slightly smaller than Rukon. Amaratsu has the highest population out of all the continents, including a large population of Verox. Most of the continent is flat, from the Lancer Grasslands to the south to the large Lucana Tundra to the north. The eastern part of it however, is fairly uneven, containing both the lowland Bangan Swamps and the tall Andreso Mountains. The town of Ridgepoint on an island off the coast os Amaratsu is a popular rest stop for sailors who've been traveling across the seas of Aradis for prolonged periods of time. The largest city in Amaratsu is Corusco.

Rukon: The southeastern continent in Aradis, and the largest of them all. Rukon may have a smaller overall population than Amaratsu, but it also has the most diverse, and is the place you are most likely to see some of the half-breed races. The large Jadewing Plains dominate Rukon, and because of it's rich soil and many farmers willing to utilize it, Rukon has become the biggest producer of agricultural products in Aradis. Surrounding the plains though on all directions is terrain unsuitable for growing crops, with the Windslash Desert to the north, the Silver Mountains to the west, the Coldstone Mountains (which also happen to be the largest mountain range in all of Aradis) to the east, and the expansive Frostwolf Tundra to the south. The largest city in Rukon is Shirazon.

Kamax: The southwestern continent in Aradis, and the second smallest. Kamax is an interesting continent, being the only one without any arctic climate, so it stays warm year round. Almost all of Kamax is either tropical rainforest or desert, with the exception of the mostly man-made Semter Plains, as well as a small portion of the Janzek Peninsula near the tip. Kamax has a high population of Gaians, as they tend to prefer warm climates. The largest city in Kamax is Sorento.

Ramdyne: The northwestern continent in Aradis, and also the smallest out of all of them. In contrast to Kamax, Ramdyne is a continent that is entirely in arctic climate, so it tends to be pretty cold there. Due to their resistance to the cold, Psyclos find Ramdyne to be very hospitible, which is why the tiny continent houses the largest population of Psyclos out of all the continents. The continent is fairly flat for the most part, but becomes more hilly as you progress inward until it becomes moutainous towards the center of it. Off the coast of Ramdyne is the Combine Islands, which houses the giant city-sized prison named The Frozen Condemmed. The largest city in Ramdyne is Erebor.

Oceans and Seas:

Angelwing Ocean: An ocean inbetween Naku from Rukon and Kamax. The Angelwing Ocean is fairly calm waters, and makes for smooth sailing; quite conveinent for the freight ships constantly shipping crops from Rukon and exotic goods from Kamax heading towards Naku.

Razoredge Sea: The apply named Razoredge Sea lies inbetween the continents of Kamax and Ramdyne, as well as the west coast of Naku. This sea gets it's name from the rocky shores that lie on the southern coast of Ramdyne and the western coast of Naku, as well as from the fact that storms frequently ravage this sea, especially during the late summer.

Cyan Sea: A sea far to the north, lying to the east of the Combine Islands and west of the Lucana Tundra. This sea is generally dangerous to travel; not because of storms, but because of the many icebergs that drift along this northern sea.

Outer Ocean: An Ocean to the east of the eastern continents. Not much is known about this ocean, as it is rarely traversed, hence why it was given the name Outer Ocean. From what is known about it however, it appears to be a relatively safe ocean to cross, but it is rumored that pirates live in fortresses they built on islands in this ocean.



There are a couple different races in Aradis, each with their own traits.

Humans: The most common race in Aradis, Humans are fairly versitile so their biggest advantage is that they can do pratcially anything. However, Humans in particular are the best race at using life and death based magics, such as restoration magic or necromancy. Human pray to both Terra and Anima equally, and their main Patrons are Vita and Spiritus.

Gaians: Gaians are the most diverse race in Aradis, with there being five different kinds of Gaians. Universally, Gains are an anthromorphic animal race, with what kind of animal they look like depending on their sub-race. Fire Gains are reptiles, Water Gaians are aquatic creatures, Wind Gaians are birds, Earth Gains are hooved mammals (such as goats, cows, deer, etc.), and Lightning Gaians are pawed mammals (such as dogs, cats, and monkies, etc.).

A Gaian child is always the same as their parents if both are the same, but if each parent is different then the child will be the kind of Gaian that the parent of the same gender is (for example, if a Fire Gaian male and a Wind Gaian female have a daughter, the child will be a Wind Gaian). Wind and Lightning Gains tend to be slightly smaller than Humans, Earth Gaians tend to be slightly larger, and Fire and Water Gains tend to be about the same height. Gaians are fairly versitile like Humans, except they tend to not be that good with magic besides elemental magic, and even then only the kind that their sub-race is associated with (for example, a Water Gaian would be good at water based elemental powers, but not others). Gaians pray mainly to Terra, and their main Patrons are Ignis for Fire Gaians, Aqua for Water Gaians, Ventus for Wind Gaians, Solum for Earth Gaians, and Tonitrui for Lightning Gaians.

Half-Gaians: Interestingly enough, breeding between Humans and Gaians is actually quite possible. The end result is a child who for the most part looks Human, but has a few animal features similer to their Gaian parent. Half-Gaians are versitile like the races of their parents, but they tend to be good with elemental magic in general rather than just one kind of it, although if they are a Fire Half-Gaian for example they are likely to be better with fire than other types of elemental magic.

Psyclos: Psyclos are an odd race, who has a special affinity with magic. They tend to be slightly taller than humans, but are very thin and frail so they are terrible at physical combat. They have skin that is a pure pale white, that doesn't change color (so Psyclos don't get tans, they don't blush, etc.). Their hair color is always a color of the rainbow (either red, yellow, orange, green, blue, purple, or pink), and their eyes have no white, no pupils, or anything. They are completely blank and are the same color as their hair, and they glow like headlights (unfortunately though they aren't bright enough to illuminate dark places). For unknown reasons, Psyclos have an extreme tolerance for the cold, so most Psyclos live close to or in the artic regions of Aradis. Psyclos cannot breed with any race besides themselves. Psyclos can use psychic-like powers by using Pink Gems, and are the only race that can do so. Due to their abilities with magic, most fortune tellers (or users of Clear Gems in general) are also Psyclos. Other then that, they tend to also be good at other forms of magic, although ther other races tend to outclass them in the forms they specalize in. Psyclos pray to both Terra and Anima, although some only pray to Anima, and their main Patrons are Mentus and Tempus.

Velox: Velox are a proud race that is very light and swift. They are fairly shorter than Humans, averaging at about half a foot to a foot shorter. They have naturally strong muscles and keen senses, so although they are short, they are also strong, fast, and perceptive. Velox have pointed ears, and their hair color is the same as humans, except it is possible for Velox to have white or silver colored hair as well. Although Velox are well suited to physical combat or stealth, Velox are absolutely terrible with magic with the exception of light and dark magic, which they tend to be fairly good at. Their light frames also make them just as easy to hurt as Psyclos, even if they are stronger than them. Velox Pray mainly to Anima, and their main Patrons are Lux and Nox.

Half-Velox: Like how breeding is possible between Humans, it is possible with Humans and Velox (oddly enough though, it isn't possible between Gaians and Velox). Half-Velox are often hard to tell that they aren't full-blooded, but there are a few differences. First, Velox have pointed ears, but they aren't as pointed as a full-blooded Velox. Second, they only have hair colors possible with humans. And lastly, they are taller than Velox, and are usually right about the size of Humans. Half-Velox are sturdier than Velox thanks to their humans blood, meaning they tend to make the best warriors, but at the cost for their skill with light and dark magic.

These are all the Divine Gems in the world:

Orange Gems: The most common gem. These gems don't give much besides basic energy, so they're good for general use.

Red Gems: Red Gems hold an essence of fire, and as such are used for fire magic or enchantments, or in technology that would normally require burning something to run, such as coal trains or furnaces.

Blue Gems: Blue Gems hold an essence of water, and are used for water like Red Gems are used for fire. These gems work best for powering things that use water or are underwater.

Grey Gems: Grey Gems hold an essence of wind, and are used for wind like Red Gems are used for fire. These gems can give the power of flight, and as such are used to power vehicles such as airships.

Brown Gems: Brown Gems hold an essence of earth, and are used for earth like Red Gems are used for fire. This gem is commonly used to power heavy machinary or mining equipment, as it gives a ton of power.

Yellow Gems: Yellow Gems hold an essence of electricity, and are used for electricity like Red Gems are used for fire. This gem gives off a strong electric charge, so it is mainly used for devices that require electricity.

White Gems: White Gems hold an essence of light. This gem is useful for illumination, and is said to work better for those with pure hearts.

Black Gems: Black Gems hold an essence of Darkness. This gem is good for shadow based magic and illusions, and is said to work better for those with closed hearts.

Pink Gems: Pink Gems hold an essence of a strange magic, that can be used by the mind. These gems are sacred to the Psyclos, who require these gems to use their powers.

Green Gems: Green Gems hold an essence of nature and life itself. This gem is commonly used in hospitals and by doctors, as it is good for casting healing magic.

Purple Gems: Purple Gems hold an essence of the soul. This gem is good for magic involving death such as necromancy, and it is rumored that it is possible to trap one's soul in this gem.

Clear Gems: Clear Gems hold an essence of time, and are the rarest of gems. This gem is the least often and hardest gem to use, however it is said that fortune tellers can use these gems to predict the future.

There are five main classes to play as: Warrior, Mechanist, Marksman, Wizard, and Rouge. Although characters have to choose a sub-class of these main classes, they can choose to have two classes, and they are given a good amount of free range to make what they want with it.

Warrior: The main fighters of the group, they are the ones who charge into danger with melee weapons. Strong and resiliant, Warriors tend to be the hardest to take down. As Warriors don't rely on Divine Stones at all (unless they have enchanted weapons, which by the way you are ENCOURAGED to have), they are not hindered at all in the event that none are avalible. The sub-classes for you to choose are:

Knight: A Warrior who fights with heavy armor. A shield is recommended (make sure it can stop bullets too!), and a knight is likely to use a weapon like a sword, spear, or halberd.
Berzerker: A Warrior who fights with large and powerful weapons. Berzerkers are a force to be reckoned with, and are likely to be the most physically strong of the group. A Berzerker is likely to either use a two-handed weapon or duel wield two one-handed weapons.
Ranger: A Warrior who is knowledgable of the land and is an excellent scout. Rangers tend to use bows or crossbows, but can choose to use something such as a sword if they wish. Rangers are usually Velox, but they don't need to be.

Mechanist: Mechanists are good with machinary and Clockwork/Steampunk type technology, and often use Divine Stones to power their devices. Mechanists usually aren't direct fighters, although they can be. The sub-classes for you to choose are:

Engineer: A Mechanist who specalizes in building machines and robots to fight for him. Engineers also can build machines to pilot themselves to use or fight with. Although they aren't forced to, they can fight themselves if they want to.
Augmenter: Mechanists who turn themselves into a weapon. This can range from characters who have gadgets they can use to fight with (like Batman), or grafting or wearing mechanical gear that improves their ability to fight (like Iron Man).

Marksman: Marksmen are fighters who used gunpowder based weaponry. They have an advantage of being ranged and not needing to rely on Divine Gems like Warriors, but they are fairly easy targets for melee fighters up close and instead need to rely on ammunition. The sub-classes for you to choose are:

Gunslinger: A Marksman who fights with guns (obviously). Remember that technology is for the most part like the mid-1840's, so instead of things like assult rifles or machine guns, you should be using things like lever action rifles and revolvers.
Demolitionist: A Marksman who specalizes in explosives. Obviously, you need to be very careful if you are a Demo, as one wrong move and you accidently blow a friend's (or your own) arm off. One again, this is mid-1840's technology, so you should be using stuff like dynamite.

Wizard: To put it basically, a Wizard is anyone who uses magic. As such, there are a ton of sub-classes for Wizard. In general, Wizards either use their magic to fight either in melee combat like Warriors, or in ranged combat like Marksmen, or support their allies with magic. The sub-classes for you to choose are:

Elementalist: A Wizard who specializes in elemental magic. The elements are fire, water, wind, earth, and lightning. Elementalists are often either Gaians or Half-Gaians, but they don't need to be.
Illusionist: A Wizard who specalizes in using light and dark magic to trick and deceive. This includes things like blinding enemies with light or invisibility.
Psychic: A Wizard who uses psychic powers, like telekinesis, telepathy, etc. ONLY Psyclos can be Psychics, but a Psyclos doesn't nessesarily need to choose Psychic as their class.
Cleric: A Wizard who specalizes in healing wounds and curing ailments. Clerics are usually Humans, but they don't need to be.
Necromancer: A Wizard who specalizes in summoning the undead or using the power of spirits. Necromancers are usually Humans, but they don't need to be.
Monk: A Wizard who fights in close combat, and uses magic to enhance their power and skill. Monks generally use quarterstaffs or fight with martial arts.
Custom: There are a ton of different things you could potentially do with magic, so if you can have the choice to make your own Wizard. If it's good and balanced enough, I will most likely accept it.

Rouge: A deceptive character who uses his charm, guile, or stealth to his advantage. Rouges aren't the best of fighters generally, but often have a big advantage over their allies in one way or another.

Thief: A Rouge who is good at sneaking around, finding traps, and of course, stealing. Thieves will often use shadow magic from Black Gems to help keep them hidden. Thieves will often use small weapons such as a hatchet or short sword, or throwing weapons like throwing knives and shurikens.
Con Artist: A Rouge who is an amazing speaker, who can get anything he wants with as much as a few words. They think on the fly and are amazing liars, and will often use their charm or wits to beguile their foes. Con Artists aren't really much of fighters, but they will often carry something like a hidden knife, in case they need to protect themselves.
Bard: A traveling musician whose instument is enchanted with magic power. Bards are often fairly deceptive, but their main skill is to use their instrument effect those who hear it. Most Bards also carry a weapon such as a sword with them for defense.

Rules:

1. All standard Serebii rules apply. Redundant to say, but whatever.
2. No godmodding, or bunnying. It ruins the fun for everyone else.
3. PLEASE avoid making a Mary Sue character. Characters who only have positive traits and are perfect in every way are just boring.
4. If you are a duel class, you shouldn't be as effective in both classes as someone who's only using one class.
5. You are allowed to have up to two characters. No more than two though; don't want there to be too many characters.
6. Posts should start with this:

Yaaaaay~ We final get a Discussion thread!


So, what should we talk about first?

Monster Guy
13th November 2012, 2:21 AM
From stalking VM conversations, I found out we'll be splitting into two groups (One with Richter, one with Harvey.) How will that work out? (Meaning, who's going with who.)

I'll likely have Leo and Lirea in seperate groups.

Lost™
13th November 2012, 2:22 AM
Yuri's either going to follow Leo or Feli. Depending on which Relationship develops faster.

Billy Mays
13th November 2012, 2:24 AM
I've contemplated on it, and I think Avenger is probably right about splitting the cast. It'd be easier and be for the best. By the way, I (finally) posted so you guys can all post now.

I'd like to keep the girls together but... that may not work out well. xD

13th November 2012, 2:28 AM
Yea, it might not, and if Yuri's in an all guy group...

THing's wont go well.

Billy Mays
13th November 2012, 2:28 AM
Well ultimately you are the one who decides where your characters goes. Also in case you haven't noticed I added the TVTropes pages to the top of the front page of this thread for easier ascess to them.

Avenger Angel
13th November 2012, 2:38 AM
Yeah, as I mentioned to Billy before, character interaction is key in an RP. But I just feel cramming everyone together makes for a mess. I had this issue with an RP on another forum where it was expected for the entire cast to travel together. It was a nightmare. It's great to have maybe a group of three or four together, but anything higher means people either aren't going to move anywhere, or they're going to have to rely on one of two options: bunnying people into moving along with them, or just plain separating from the group entirely.

I think Billy's idea of splitting the group into two should work fine.

Lost™
13th November 2012, 3:21 AM
Yea, that's the most reasonable.

No idea which group Halt will go with, maybe the one lead by Harvey. Also, on a slightly more needed note, how do I trope? On the TV trope page?

*Jean Grey*
14th November 2012, 2:35 PM
Heh, pretty easy actually. XD You go to the "edit" page first (You need an account to actually edit), then to add a trope, just put a "*" then a space, followed by the trope you want to put, but sticking the words together, the first letter of each word should be capitalized. For instance, soemthing like this:

* PlayingWithFire

Yup, one line for each individual trope. XD

As for Feli...would be funny if Cynthia were in her group. XD Girl's in deep trouble and the facade has to be exposed sooner or later so there will still be time to trust her. XD

On tropes...I think we have enough people for two Four-Temperament Ensembles...one for the girls and one for the guys. XD Who's who? XD

14th November 2012, 2:44 PM
Sanguine (blood):Yuri

Choleric (yellow bile): Richard

Melancholic (black bile):Harvey?

Phlegmatic (phlegm)*:?

My Guesses for the guys... I don't see any Phlegmatic characters yet IMO.

*Jean Grey*
14th November 2012, 2:45 PM
There could be a Leukine though. XD

14th November 2012, 2:49 PM
Sanguine (blood):Yuri, Leo, Emna?

Choleric (yellow bile): Richard, Halt?

Melancholic (black bile):Harvey? Ian?

Phlegmatic (phlegm)*:?

My Guesses for the guys... I don't see any Phlegmatic characters yet IMO.

:P

I haven't either. None of the guys are that shy. :/

Lost™
14th November 2012, 2:51 PM
Oh wait! What about that Ranger kid! He could be Plegmatic.

Well, here's what Sanguine is: Extroverted and people-oriented. Exhibits optimism, compassion, good cheer, a love of fun, enthusiasm. On the flip side, they may be impulsive, self-indulgent, wear their hearts on their sleeves, or even be a space case. Corresponds to the element of air. Can often be a Genki Girl / Keet, The Pollyanna, or if female a more plucky/out-going Proper Lady.

I think that fit's Yuri the best, he is the Keet after all. Though, I do see traits of both Leo and Enma in their.

Delta Hunter
14th November 2012, 3:33 PM
Coleric? Excuse me? I must be missing something here...anyways, I should post tonight. if not, tomorrow morning

*Jean Grey*
14th November 2012, 3:57 PM
Heh, Phegmatic is the problem among the guys, huh? XD How about the girls...I got the strange feeling that most, if not all of them, are Choleric to some extent. XD

Also...we don't have Ms. Fanservice yet! Is it Lirea...just to make the fanservice duo Mon's characters? XD

Billy Mays
14th November 2012, 10:42 PM
Richter (Not Richard CandleReaper, Richter) would probably fit Choleric the best, although I think he'd also be a mix of Leukine as well. As for Harvey, I don't know. I guess he is some what Melancholic, but I think he is a bit of Sanguine too.

So for best fits, I think it'd be:

Sanguine: Yuri, but I think Leo and Enma could probably qualify for this too.

Choleric: Richter, but he's more of serious tempered than arrogant.

Melancholic: Ian, and possibly Hawke too.

Phlegmatic: Uh...Cynthia maybe? That's the best I can think of, and she isn't even a guy.

14th November 2012, 11:08 PM
Well, not having gotten to TVTropes to read up on definations and what have you, I have no valuable input right now. Will post soon however.

By the way.....when did this thing get here?

Why's everyone forgotten about Kareena? ;~;

She'll open up a lot more, once she gets used to everyone. She's definitely a Sanguine.

Billy Mays
14th November 2012, 11:27 PM
Because Kareena has a vagina. We're talking about which guys would fit, not girls.

SoulMuse
14th November 2012, 11:28 PM
^ AS I understand it that sums it up nicely.

That wasn't exactly my point, but... thank you. Couldn't you have been nicer than just saying "BECAUSE SHE HAZ VAGINA TROLOLOLOL"?

*Jean Grey*
14th November 2012, 11:38 PM
Yeah, I said both guys and girls. XD

Billy Mays
14th November 2012, 11:52 PM
Hey, I didn't say it like that. Besides, since everyone mentioned before was a guy, I was certain that we were discussing which guys would fit it, then once done with that we would move on to the girls.

Just so you know, I would've said Kareena would fit Sanguine otherwise.

*Jean Grey*
15th November 2012, 12:23 AM
Kareena is a Sanguine? XD How about Lirea, Feli and Cynthia...strangely, I can't see a Phlegmatic here either. XD

Kareena is a Sanguine? XD How about Lirea, Feli and Cynthia...strangely, I can't see a Phlegmatic here either. XD

Yep, I intended to make her a Sanguine from the very beginning (read the sign-up). I suppose she'll have some trouble breaking through the class barrier at the start, though. So... she needs friends!

SenorLaughsaLot
15th November 2012, 12:30 AM
I think Cynthia is more Choleric. But Jean already said that most girls may be.
And Flame, she always has Lover Boy!

Billy Mays
15th November 2012, 12:38 AM
I have a feeling that Richter will be no one's friend, where as Harvey will be everyone's friend. Despite being imposing in pretty much every sense of the word, Harvey's a pretty nice guy if you get to know him. Richter...well, what you see is what you get pretty much. :p

Lost™
15th November 2012, 12:46 AM
Well, Phlegmatic can also mean Supine, which is Tears.

SenorLaughsaLot
15th November 2012, 12:51 AM
@Mays - Cynthia could/would be his friend, due to her high respect towards him. Plus, they're sort of alike.

Billy Mays
15th November 2012, 12:54 AM
@Senor - Yeah, there's likely to be exceptions. There will probably be a few people that Harvey doesn't like, and a few that Richter might actually befriend, but for the most part Harvey is going to be the friendly one.

@Senor: As long as he doesn't flirt with her, I'm sure Kareena can be good friends with Enma. =)

Monster Guy
15th November 2012, 1:03 AM
As anyone who's been in other RP's with him can attest to, Leo will pretty much try to befriend everyone. xD

Lirea on the other hand, well... I can tell you that she already doesn't like Halt. (For some reason, Lirea doesn't like fire. xD)

SenorLaughsaLot
15th November 2012, 1:03 AM
@Flame - He was mainly complimenting Kareena, cause she seems like a little girl. He would leave her alone, going after the women. x]
I see him protecting and treating Kareena as a little sister. c:

Lost™
15th November 2012, 1:23 AM
Well, I can see Yuri just casting Magic on Leo's shoulders, well, be on his Shoulders almost the entire RP.

He is old, so walking long distances might not be good for him (Unlike Kareena, who can practically fly)

*Jean Grey*
15th November 2012, 2:23 AM
As for Feli, I'm not sure if she's Sanguine or Choleric or both. XD

I swear, Feli is definitely nice, but...yeah, you know that she's bi and may go Les Yay. XD Just don't think of her as primarily a criminal in your mind after you find out her identity and you'll definitely get along with her. XD

BTW, I made some corrections to Feli's real name. Her real surname is actually spelled with a "k" and not a "c", according to more sites I researched on. I just read one faulty name site, that's why. XD Of course, her entire name has references to "luck". XD It's now "Łukaszewicz" and not "Łucaszewicz". XD Yeah, I was misinformed. XD (SenorLaughsALot, take note of this and edit accordingly.) XD

As for teams...she may go either way. XD Cynthia has to be with her so she could be outed. XD

Azran Flame
15th November 2012, 7:48 AM
Kareena... can't fly. She's only a Half-Gaian. And a mostly human one, at that.

Also, is it weird that I immediately thought of Fransizka Von Karma upon reading Sulzbach's History? =p

Monster Guy
15th November 2012, 12:18 PM
^ Well, Lirea can use her Trident to "bring out her gaianess" :P

Although, I think she's more accustomed to using it on herself.

*Jean Grey*
15th November 2012, 4:15 PM
Heh, Feli can definitely run very fast, considering the Lightning Gaian in her. XD Plus...just something strange about her, she definitely has a howl to her laughter. XD

Wait...do we have a Three Faces of Eve and a Three Faces of Adam? XD Who's who? XD

SenorLaughsaLot
15th November 2012, 11:31 PM
Three Faces of Eve :
Wife - Not sure
Seductress - Feli
Child - Kareena

Three Faces of Adam :
Hunter - Enma?
Lord - Richter
Prophet - Yuri

And what do you guys think about Character Alignment and where the characters belong?

*Jean Grey*
16th November 2012, 3:16 PM
Well, Cynthia is obviously Lawful something, as well as Richter perhaps. XD Feli is either Neutral something or Chaotic something. XD Kareena seems like a Neutral something. XD

Monster Guy
16th November 2012, 3:28 PM
Leo is Neutral Good

Lirea is Chaotic Good... I think.

Billy Mays
16th November 2012, 10:30 PM
Richter is Lawful Good, easily. Harvey would probably also be Lawful Good, if only because he doesn't like the idea of getting punished for breaking the law.

Azran Flame
16th November 2012, 11:00 PM
Kareena is definitely a Neutral something, though she tries to be Lawful so that 1) her father's reputation doesn't get tarnished and 2) she doesn't get arrested.

*Jean Grey*
17th November 2012, 4:02 AM
Well, Feli has shown herself to be pretty unlawful, but I don't know if she falls under Neutral or Chaotic, and Good or Neutral...the one thing I know is that she's definitely not Evil! XD

kacqn
17th November 2012, 4:14 AM
I think Kristoph lies somewhere in Good or Neutral. Lawful Neutral or Neutral Good maybe?

SenorLaughsaLot
17th November 2012, 4:51 AM
Cynthia seems more Neutral Good to me, and Enma just Lawful Good, I guess.

*Jean Grey*
18th November 2012, 4:25 AM
Well, what I definitely know is that Feli and Cynthia definitely do not share the same alignment, considering how they clash. XD

18th November 2012, 6:01 AM
Alright then. Here's some questions I have for you guys!

Who would voice your character/ who would they sound like, and what would be their Leitmotif?

I think Yuri would be Neutral Good...

Well for my question, if I decide to unseal Yuri at one point or not, Yuri would have this voice (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZh9SsoReu0&feature=related) (Just listen to Gig). If not... I don't know a good little kid voice to fit him.

Well, for the Leitmotif, I would have to say Perfect Trap (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I37AICDNogI)

Azran Flame
18th November 2012, 8:57 AM
Is it weird that I immediately thought of Yuri Lowenthal voicing Yuri? =p

As for Kareena's leitmotif, it needs to be something cheerful, upbeat, and slightly sparkly all at once. *goes leitmotif hunting*

EDIT: Okay, so this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXP-dQTnGb8&feature=youtube_gdata_player) was the first thing that came into mind (ignore Mr. Pumpkin Head there) but then I heard this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47-235S987g&feature=youtube_gdata_player). So that it is.
Now that I look back at it, the first one doesn't really suit Kareena that much at all. =/ Give it a listen anyway, though.
EDIT: WAIT WAIT NO, this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbSfUXR2tFU&feature=youtube_gdata_player) is great as well. Ahhhhh can't decide ;A;

But... but Coconut Mall is my favourite MKWii track ;A;

I'll wait for more opinions, then.

18th November 2012, 6:18 PM
For Kareena I thought about Iris' Champion Theme because of your avatar, I think it sorta fits ( http://m.youtube.com/index?&desktop_uri=%2F#/watch?v=G1kHPeGqSw8),but I agree with Trucy's theme out of the three.

And I think Yuri's leitmotif is great.

For Enma I have some ideas, and considering the influence I had when I made him, I went with Naruto. x]
I was thinking the theme (http://m.youtube.com/index?&desktop_uri=%2F#/watch?feature=related&v=kYpySN0SwAY) of the person he was partly based on, or this ( http://m.youtube.com/index?&desktop_uri=%2F#/watch?feature=related&v=-0YsqDV-qdM) one.
I don't have one for Cynthia yet, might come up with one later.

Monster Guy
19th November 2012, 1:48 AM
You may now rejoice! Mon has posted! xD

I have no idea what his or Lirea's lietmotiff would be. :/ Leo's would be something cheerful and upbeat (One song that fits is Smile Smile Smile from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. xD), while Lirea's would be something dramatic and action-y.

Delta Hunter
19th November 2012, 1:58 AM
I don't know what a lietmotiff is, but I assume it's a theme. I can't think of one exactly for Halt, but something bombastic and powerful, in your face and slightly dark. Maybe firery. I was think Animal I have Become by Three Days Grace, but that's a little too dark for him. Anyone have any thoughts?

SenorLaughsaLot
19th November 2012, 2:23 AM
I think Nightmare by Avenged Sevenfold could be a possibility for Halt, well, the part after the lullaby-ish tune x]

Azran Flame
19th November 2012, 2:48 AM
Heh, I only ever choose video game OSTs for my chaeacters' leitmotifs... I dunno why, I just don't like leitmotifs to have lyrics, do that they're free to the listener's interpretation (and classical music never fits anyone =p).

The first thing that came into mind was the first theme I posted for Kareena (the one I ended up not using at all), since its lyrics fit her nicely... but I'm sure there are more out there, we just need to look. The second thing that came into mind was casino music. XD

*Jean Grey*

Heh, Cynthia's theme for Cynthia. XD I swear, when I first thought of Kareena, Route 216-217's theme came to mind for some reason. XD If our characters had Pokemon counterparts, Cynthia's is Cynthia and Kareena's is Iris. XD Feli...not sure, but definitely a sexy one. XD

19th November 2012, 2:25 PM
If we're using pokemon themes, then...huh. Still no idea. I'm thinking a faster paced version of the pokemon tower theme, but again, that's too dark for Halt. I was thinking a gym theme or the gym leader theme from Red/Blue, but not sure. Elite Four Hoenn theme comes to mind.

*Jean Grey*
19th November 2012, 3:04 PM
ARE YOU READY? XD I actually like this one route theme for Lirea...the one when you pass certain seaside routes in Eastern Unova (Do you get what I mean?)...sounds very "underwater kingdom-y" to me (If you look for Maplestory music, "Shining Sea" also works well). XD As for Halt, I strangely like the Hoenn Legends theme, considering I kinda associate Halt with Groudon for some reason. XD

Now...if each character had Pokemon...what would each of them have? XD One normal and one Legendary, just for the kicks. XD

Monster Guy
19th November 2012, 3:12 PM
But Leo has tons of Pokemon. D8

Luxray
Togekiss
Gallade
Arcanine
Zoroark
Victini
Ho-Oh

Lirea would have to be Milotic. Legendary... Kyogre?

*Jean Grey*
19th November 2012, 3:22 PM
Pick one of each then, or else, I'll have to draw from a hat. 8D I kid, I kid. XD Considering he's a Monk, Victini makes sense as his Legendary...and I don't know why but this Leo seems to be a Gallade or a Togekiss. I kinda see him as someone having incredible luck, in comparison to Feli's terrible luck. XD

What do you think Feli's regular Pokemon and Legendary should be? XD Dialga? Considering it has pretty striking eyes? XD

Azran Flame

Funnily enough, I thought exactly the same thing for Kareena. XD

Kareena would have an Ice-Type, probably Glaceon. Articuno or Victini for legendary, maybe?

Oh, by the way, I'll probably get a post up tonight, since I don't have any homework. Sorry for the wait! ^^;

SenorLaughsaLot
19th November 2012, 8:12 PM
I think Cynthia would have a Darmanitan, it's strong and looks like it can have a temper. x]
A Blissey is another good one. As for a legendary, Shaymin is a healer, sort of.

Enma would definitely have an Infernape, they look similar.
And then Meloetta is his legend. She transforms when she's ready to fight, like Enma changes his attitude.

And Feli should have a Loppuny, the playboy pokemon XD

Delta Hunter
19th November 2012, 8:14 PM
Charizard. Halt's pokemon. Its a fire breathing lizard with a temper to boot. Nuff said. As for a legandary...harder to say. Myabe Grounden or Entei

Great minds think alike...it's so cute and wintery at the same time. XD Glaceon is definitely her Pokemon...most elegant Ice-type off the bat. XD For her Legend...Articuno looks like the better choice. XD I bet that Kareena's team may have an Altaria too. XD

Strangely, the kind of healing Pokemon I see Cynthia with is more like...not Blissey, considering Blissey...*shudder*, yeah...fat and pink. XD I think that Cynthia's Legend can be Cresselia if you're going for a healer, as Shaymin is just...teeny, but that thing has, like, no attack. XD How about Zekrom? XD

Yes, Enma is definitely Infernape, no question about it. XD

Whenever I think of Halt...I think of Groudon for some reason....XD

Feli as a Lopunny? XD Image-wise, hell yeah, but that thing is...good luck...y'know about the "lucky rabbit foot", right? XD Feli's Pokemon should definitely embody bad omens, with no lucky connotations or the ability "Super Luck". XD The only possible Legend for her is probably Dialga, considering that it looks like it has the blue Hope Diamond on its chest and has pretty striking eyes. XD Besides, I think Yuri is more of a Celebi than a Dialga. XD Or should Feli's be...Darkrai, as it also doesn't look it it could be good luck either, and it's also really fast like she is. XD Which is the better choice for Feli...Dialga or Darkrai? XD

But when it comes to turning the 4 girls into the "feminine Pokemon" for Enma's/Leo's harem...yes, Feli would be probably be Lopunny, or perhaps Cynthia? XD

And no, no Jynx for Feli just because it's big-busted and blonde and has unlucky connotations in its name...Feli is not that hideous. XD

Azran Flame
20th November 2012, 7:58 AM
@JG: Actually, Articuno was my second choice. XD I think it fits her better, now that I think about it. Flying-Type, and feminine, too... Glaceon and Articuno it is, then.

SenorLaughsaLot
20th November 2012, 9:57 PM
How about Ninetales for Feli? If you touch one of its tails it results in a 1000-year curse, it can control people with its sinister eyes, and it's also beautiful.
Plus it learns moves like Hex and Nasty Plot. And I think I like Darkrai more.

Halt and Groudon do seem to go together.
Kareena's are also great.

Cynthia can have Latias, it heals, and Gallade? It can heal and has good attack as well.

-Darkrai
-Ninetales
-Houndoom
-Zoroark
-Shiny Hydreigon (Guess the real-world reference here. ;))

Celebi
Shinx
Shiny Litwick
Anorith
Ralts
Solrock

Final Team:
Dialga
Luxray
Armaldo
Shiny Chandelure
Gardevoir
Solrock

Reasons for them:
Luxray has adapted through time so it can have X-Ray Vision. It shows how through time, things adapt to their environment.
CHandelure, it is the bringer of death, and time is the ultimate thing that decides your death.
Armaldo, the fossil of the team, showing those for ancient ruin can come back strong as they were, like Yuri did
Gardevoir, it can read one's emotions, one of the things that change over time, and decides who one is.
Solrock, to represent the sun. It is a star the will flicker forever, and will only end when we are gone.

Kareena's Team:
- Glaceon
- Altaria
- Empoleon
- Togekiss
- Azumarill

I have no particular reason for any of them - they just correspond to Kareena's Elemental Magic and background (Air/Water and Ice, respectively). Also, all of them are graceful in one way or the other, barring maybe Azumarill, who's just really cute.

Billy Mays
21st November 2012, 5:33 AM
Gah, haven't been able to post in awhile. And STILL waiting for SoulMuse to post.

Anyway, for lietmotifs, Richter's would probably be Proud Soldier - Gage's Theme, Advance Wars: Days of Ruin OST (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuL8yuN3vkc). The song is very proud sounding, a theme fit for a strong but honorable knight like Richter. Harvey's would likely be Ride!! - Madworld OST (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InchB6U5FG4). For whatever reason, I feel that a rap song really fits Harvey.

As for teams, Richter's would probably consist of:
- Escavalier
- Gallade
- Bisharp
- Sceptile
- Haxorus
- Cobalion

And Harvey's would be:
- Tyranitar
- Golurk
- Tauros
- Nidoking
- Slowking
- Terrakion

All of Richter's Pokemon either use blades or are/appear to be honorable. Harvey's Pokemon mainly just fit with who he is (like Golurk being big and mechanical in nature, or Tauros simply being a large bull), while Nidoking and Slowking also fit because his last name is Kingrock and they both have king in their name (as well as Slowking evolving with a King's Rock).

SenorLaughsaLot
21st November 2012, 6:05 AM
I really like Richter's team, and the leitmotifs are cool.

Also, for some reason, I thought of Cynthia when I heard this ( http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=ya0lOQsvedc). Especially at the 2:22 mark, like she's in Berzerker mode or something. x]

Now...how about...starters? XD If they all had starters as their first Pokemon, which starter would each character have? XD

A few guesses, based on attack styles and general...vibe? XD The types don't exactly have to match, so you can have an Earth user with a Fire Pokemon. XD

Richter: One of the badass ones, definitely.
Harvey: Torterra? Emboar?
Enma: Infernape
Cynthia: One of the heavier ones? her hammer is pretty heavy...
Kareena: Empoleon
Leo: Blaziken
Feli: Something with good offenses that can use slashing moves, I guess...
Lirea: Swampert? (dem ears!)
Ian: Serperior? Feraligatr?
Halt: Charizard
Kristoph: Blastoise? Something that shoots and blasts...XD
Yuri: Typhlosion? Serperior? Meganium?

21st November 2012, 2:05 PM
@BM: I'm also waiting for SoulMuse in Persona. I ended up posting without him. :/ It had been two weeks already.

As for starters, I'd have to agree with the choices made.

Leo and Lirea's actual first Pokemon though would likely be Munna for Leo, (For no reason. xD) and quite possibly Feebas for Lirea. xD

Delta Hunter
21st November 2012, 2:12 PM

Azran Flame
21st November 2012, 7:02 PM
Kareena is definitely an Empoleon person. I think a skill where she summons a penguin to do something will be fitting. I can see Kareena as a very penguin-y person.

I think Yuri would be a good Serperior, since he probably thinks he's "superior" to the others, because he's older. //randomlogic//

SenorLaughsaLot
21st November 2012, 7:19 PM
I think Torterra suits Cynthia. It knows Wood Hammer and Synthesis, but then again, it also suits Harvey.
Then there's Meganium, a great healer, but not the best attacker.

Lost™
21st November 2012, 7:24 PM
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

Yuri will not be even thought of next to the MOSTROSITY. (THe only Serperior I will ever love is mine, because Iris is a boss)

rant aside, It doesn't fit as he isn't Regal, and it's not a Bastard.

Also, Snvy isn't cute and childish, it's serious and hard-working.

Shinx works better, as it fits Yuri, and Luxray fits Yuriko

EDIT: The only regular starter I do see fittign Yuri is the Oshawott line....

Azran Flame
21st November 2012, 8:43 PM
Yeah, well, Shinx =/= starter. And he doesn't seem very "childish" to me, considering his thoughts.

Billy Mays
21st November 2012, 10:08 PM
Sceptile fits Richter pretty damn well (hence why it was on his team), but Samurott fits him well too. I guess I'd pick Sceptile since I think the whole Treecko evolution line fits Richter better than Oshawott's line.

As for Harvey, I'd probably go with Emboar due to his bulk and size, as well as the fact that how the Pokedex describes Emboar's personality kinda fits Harvey's personality. So I'd say Emboar = Harvey, and Torterra = Cynthia.

@Flame Mistress - Candle was looking at the starters for the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games. In Explorers of Sky, Shinx is one of the options (only for male characters btw though).

Azran Flame
21st November 2012, 10:14 PM
@BM: Yes, I know what he was talking about, however the starters in the PMD games aren't considered to be the 'official' starters. Otherwise we'd have about thirty starters to choose from, including Gen V.

Billy Mays
21st November 2012, 10:16 PM
Well they ARE starters in their own games, but not in the main ones. I agree that it's different, so asking what Mystery Dungeon starter your character would be would be a different topic alltogether.

*Jean Grey*
22nd November 2012, 12:03 AM
Now that I think about it...wouldn't Richter be more of a Samurott type than a Sceptile type? XD I mean...it's more...him. XD When I was looking at the starter options for Feli...there are no dog-like starters, so a slashing offensive one was in order. XD Sceptile has the most Thief-like movement and speed, with a lot of slashing moves to boot. XD

Hey, what about Avenger Angel's character? Speaking of which, we haven't seen much of him around here...

Dunno, I don't really think there's a Pokemon out there that really resembles his character in terms of a badass, cowboy guy that doesn't take crap from anyone.

In the meantime, I was wondering if it's okay for Hawke to start getting serious leads on the location of the Scared Gem. I'm not sure if Billy Mays would be okay with that, or if he has other intentions and events he'd like to address first. If so, I could have Hawke just chasing a misleading rumor, but come across something else.

Well, for Hawke...there's always...Garchomp. XD I think it's a cool, strong 'mon that fits him nicely. XD

Now...I somehow got myself into this...birth chart thing and I found it quite fun to do. XD I can do this for all the characters. XD Just fill out this form. XD As there was no year specified for the RP...I just assumed 1858. Correct me if I'm wrong, Billy. XD

Name:
Birth date:
Time of birth (24-hour format):
City/country (imagine where your character would probably be born in the real world):

Example:

Name: Felicja Milena Łukaszewicz
Birth date: 11 November 1835 (If we're following 1858)
Time of birth (24-hour format): 23:44
City/country: Krakow, Poland

Here are their certificates.

Name: Cynthia Viridian
Birth Date: June 27, 1831
Time of birth: 19:19
City/Country: Munich, Germany

Name: Enma Sarutobi
Birth Date: April 19, 1833
Time of birth: 8:26
City/Country: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Name: Kareena Evelyne Aslantin (yep, Evelyne is her middle name)
Birth Date: January 13th, 1841
Time of Birth: 23:07
City/Country: Glasgow, Scotland

Okay, let me correct myself: Kareena has a half-Scottish, half-London accent (yes, there's a difference between the two) - she picked up the Scottish accent from the servants and the London accent from her father... or something. Her mother is also the Aradis equivalent of Scandanavian.

Name: Leonardo Valentino Silverstone
Birthday: July 23 1840
Time: 12:00
Country/City: Milan, Italy/London, England/United States

Leo's ancestry is a strange one. He's part Italian (First and middle name, though I might change the middle name later...) and part British, (Silverstone is British. I had no idea until now) both from his father's side. Yet, his accent is of neither of those countries.

I'll do Lirea's later, when I decide on it. :/

If the calender was the same in Aradis, I'd like to think it is right about that time, so you are pretty much right on that one Jean. Maybe a few years later though, like during the American Civil War perhaps (1860-1865). But yeah, 1858 will suffice.

Uh...might as well do this I guess. Seems a little silly to me though. :p

Name: Richter Ralleigh Redheart (Mmmhm, his Middle Name starts with an R too.)
Birthday: January 7, 1830
Time: 01:57
Country/City: Oxford, England

Name: Harvey James Kingrock
Birthday: August 11, 1836
Time: 18:12
Country/City: New Orleans, United States

EDIT: By the way, if SoulMuse doesn't post by tomorrow I'm just going to move on, we've waited long enough for this to start.

And here's the first batch. XD I can't post the pics because they're big....but you can click the links to view them. XD Look at the tiny dots to see where the planets really are. The glyphs and black lines just help you by pointing to their locations in the wheel. Look at the side key to see where in the Zodiac the planets are. XD

Richard: Pretty crowded around the Capricorn, with 3 planets in there aside from the Sun.

Harvey: Pretty crowded in Leo. In terms of Sun and Moon sign, he's seriously a double-Leo. XD

Cynthia: Despite not having the sun in Leo, she does have 3 planets in there too. XD What's with Leos? XD

Enma: Double-Aries right here. XD Also, 3 other planets in Aries aside from that. XD

Leo: One of the more spread-out ones here. Two planets in Leo aside from the Sun.

Kareena: Also pretty evenly-spread, though more towards the last 4 signs.

23rd November 2012, 11:36 PM
Heh, there's a corresponding meaning to the planet in each sign. XD Just google it. XD It shows her sun sign and moon sign too, just look for where the crescent (moon) symbol is and where the circle with a dot (sun) symbol is. XD

How do you guys think the groupings will go? There should be two groups of 6-man squads, the leaders being Richter and Harvey.

Richter


Harvey

Lemme know what you guys think and where you guys would want your characters to go. (I'll just keep track here)

Billy Mays
25th November 2012, 3:53 AM
I think you're getting a little ahead of yourself. We can think about who is going where when the time comes. Besides, it's ultimately the choice of each person to decide who goes where.

Halt is definetly going with Harvey. Again, he hates half-breeds, so even if he went with Richtor, he wouldn't be able to stand taking the orders from him.

Feli's going with Richter. XD I want to portray her as kinda foolish and surrounding herself with authorities? That's tempting fate. XD

Probably not. And even then, he'd consider her safety more important than his opinion of her. If anyone would get on his nerves, it's Felicity or Halt. He hates criminals.

Richter can be a father figure for Kareena, then, right? It'd be interesting to see Kareena and Halt in the same team, though. Halt probably won't realize that Kareena is a Half-Gaian unless she ever takes off her hat, though.

It's not so much that is it is people waiting on other people. Take my advice, don't wait on anyone to post after three days of waiting unless it's pretty crucial (as in you're fighting them, which obviously isn't happening in this case, but in that event, VM them).

Breaking away from someone is not that hard to do it either. If you're engaged in a conversation with a person who isn't replying, have something suddenly distract your character or simply just pretend the conversation ended and move along with the rest of the story. If that person comes back, they can always catch up later, but waiting and waiting around for someone to post when it's clear they're not posting is a bad idea, because people wait on you too.

I actually agree. I can't tell you how many RP's I've been in that died because everyone's waiting for a key person to post (Sometimes that Key person being me), and nobody wants to move. >_>

I'm just gonna wait until we move along before posting. I don't have much to do besides the obvious. :/ (Read: Restate what's been said, then get on the ship, which you already know is going to happen.)

Actually that was unintentional that I used the first and last name of two of the most famous U.S. presidents, so that's amusing.

How about Herbert Nixon? Or Theodore Jefferson? Or Andrew Reagan? I could do this all day.

*ahem* Anyway, since were all still grouped together, I feel like I probably shouldn't wait for everyone to post before moving on. I mean, I think I'm still waiting on probably about 5-7 more people right now.

I'm hoping people are still interested in this RP. Especially Billy himself, since a lot is riding on finding out what the Sacred Gem actually does, how its role is incorporated into the storyline, and I feel doing anything with it without his okay on it may break and ruin any kind of interesting plan he had for it. It does sound like he has something interesting in store for when people actually come across it, but it's just getting to this point that seems to be a struggle.

I think we need a means to get people split up, at least for a little bit. Having an entire group of people travel together tends to really bog things down. Either that, or we need to have this game-changing event happen right now, as in making this event take place in the next post (I can understand if finding the Sacred Gem in the tundra was meant to be a challenge, but I don't think stalling any longer to hit a vital turning point is going to help). Things are slowing down too much and I'm already seeing people that were in this RP and claimed they would post soon are now signing up for other RPs. That's a surefire signal that lack of free time isn't the issue here, the fact they've lost interest is.

Anyway, I think we need to ultimately decide what we want to do and what happens. As much as I'd like Hawke to actually find the Sacred Gem and discover something cool or fascinating about it, I don't want to ruin Billy's plans. However, that kind of puts me in limbo at the moment, since while I can have Hawke adventuring through the tundra, it's meaningless if I can't ever make anything come out of it with regards to the Gem. And for him to never find it and then just go home empty-handed pretty much ends his story.

Billy Mays
12th December 2012, 12:26 AM
I'm REALLY sorry about not posting. I've been procratinating alot, and have had a bit of writer's block. I still have interest in this, and am going to move it forward today (for real, this time). I am actually pretty stoked for when the team actually gets to the Sacred Gem, as I have some good stuff planned for that.

As for Hawke, I certainly don't want Hawke to just accomplish nothing and leave with nothing to do and nowhere to go. I'll PM you and see what we can work out for him, since I plan on the team finding the gem.

EDIT: Erm...scratch that, make that tomorrow. Turns out I didn't have any time today. Drat.
