I added racial descriptions to the setting thread.

It is a good time to revise your character concept and post updates.

I'm not sure if you check PMs or not, SE, but I'm alerting you that I am sending you my character concept including skills and weaknesses via PM in a few minutes, so perhaps it would be best if that were checked.  Or something.

I don't normally, but I will since you've told me.

Alright, sorry that took so long--it took longer to work out than I thought it would (I had the idea in my head but I had to write it out.) It is officially there now, though.

I've decided I'll be an old [around 120? is that old?] half-elven half-Illumen female Darkmage and Necromancer. I'll take to my Elven side. Intelligence, Mental Strength, and Dark or Necromantic Magic are my strong points; not very fast, weaker body. Neutral Magics can be a secondary skill. I don't know enough to specify any more. And so, I beseech the great and all powerful E to make my stats. :'( Pwease??

ok, so... if you take after your elf side, you are effectively an elf. You'll just have family that are Illumans.

I should explain magic, as it took me a moment to understand it as I read. There are only 2 skills for magic. Arcane and Witchcraft. Arcane magic spends your endurance to replicate any given ability (you can cast it on yourself or others. The higher your level of arcane magic, the less endurance it costs (of course, the higher the level in the ability you want to replicate, the *more* it costs). The spells are harder to cast if you can't move or speak.

Witchcraft, on the other hand, lets you inflict weaknesses on others. Everything else works the same.

It sounds you want to have Magic, Witchcraft, though we can call it Necromancy or Dark Magic for flavor, if you desire.

This should be an easy character for me to make. I will do yours, and Nessa has told me her character concept remains unchanged.

I would like everyone else to let me know if they wish to make changes to their character with the information I've given.

I'm excited for the game to start.  Everybody--Everybody!  Stop working!  Stop eating!  Stop sleeping!  Stop living your lives in general!  I want to play the game now!

I just need a nod from Shrain, Seeker, Gemm, and uh... no one else. 5 players? that's a pretty good size.

That is totally and completely awesome in every comprehendable way! ;D ;D:lol: And, SE, I guessed that all half-elf meant that i'd just get Illuman ancestors, and relatives. I was putting in an option for Politic Stuff involving family members, if'n I need it.

So...uh...has anybody seen the needed players on the forum?  Like, how long are we going to wait for them?

This sounds very interesting - I DM a real D&D game every month, but I've tried this before.

Put me down for a late 30's human warrior (I'm thinking ex-knight) with a trick knee.  Maybe a drinking problem, but totally a professional down on his luck with his age gettin' to him.

weapons: standard longsword (and shield), haven't decided on decent back up
armor: breastplate, for mobility, less weight on the knee
signature item: spit-shined brass locket on a simple chain

skills: leadership, knowledge of military tactics, swordsman,and taunting

I will sort of do that
I'm revamping the game.... again. It will be essentially rule-less (mostly). I'm building it up on Gaia and I will run an instance of it here. Sorry I haven't kept you all updated.

While I love D&D, I won't mind a "rule-less" system, especially if its onthe boards.  However, can you provide a link to "Gaia"?  Is it a world, or a mechanic?

It's a web community. There's a lot of rp there. Primarily it's collaborative story telling. I want to see if I can move that here. http://www.gaiaonline.com
