Arrow Antagonist's Anarchy: Magically-Deviant Mental Asylum (or OOC)

Welcome to the third thread of AA's OOC chat. By now, people really ought to know what an OOC thread is...

As before I'm asking that no one posts until the character sheets are up. In addition, I’d prefer said character sheets in spoiler tags. For the sake of saving scrolling space.

Incidentally, the ruleset has been ‘upgraded’ so please adjust your characters to the new one. It should be more ‘streamlined’. (Important: Existing characters - those that are being rebuilt get 200 points to use, not that 150 points new players get)

Index of currently active characters
Isokla
Ydalon
Nivram
Telryn Gale
Jason

Because I’m lazy, here’s a copy and paste job of the five basic rules.

– No posting with sigs, please. If you do, just edit it out.
– DM's ruling is final
– No controlling another person's character without his/her permission (including the DM's NPCs/Villains)
– No uber crazed actions or killing five plus people in a row without taking a scratch... I'll let you decide your own damage for the most part, but there will be times when I'll "force" a character to take damage.
– Basically summed up: Common Sense & Courtesy

Feel free to use colours for speech, action or general text, but please, no eyesore colours... people have to read it after all.


Spoiler for Character Creation Rules...:


The premise of this system is a tier-based (1 to 5) “point-buy” where a set number of points (or XP) are allotted and the character ‘buys’ the abilities he or she wishes. (Note that only third tier is permitted at character creation; once s/he is awarded XP in-game then s/he may raise to a higher tier)

As a rough guide:
A Novice is 1 in 10
An Expert is 1 in 100
A Master is 1 in 1000
A High Master is 1 in 10, 000
A Grand Master is 1 in 100, 000 (there are perhaps five or six of these in the entire world)


There are several categories:

Core rules:
Attributes (your basic stats)
Skills (skills of what your character knows and what your character can do) Weapon Mastery (Weapons your character can use (well))
Magic (A form of energy that is supernatural, but still follows laws. There are five categories)
Signature Techniques (Signature techniques (attacks or defensive) known to the character – also includes ‘innate powers’)
Essence Pool/(Essence Points) (This fuels/allows your abilities)
Currency (the amount of cash your character has on hand)
Equipment (your character's inventory!)

Optional Rules:
Disadvantages

Other Rules:
Character Creation: The Costs (What you start with)
In Game Costs
Level Up Costs
Character Sheet Template


Core Rules
Spoiler for Attributes:

Your key, primary stats. There are eight attributes and they are ranked on a scale of 1 to 5. Everyone starts with a single tier in every statistic. The ratings are as follows:
1 is below Average
2 is Average
3 is above Average
4 is Genius
5 is Superhuman

Strength (Gee, if I have to explain this...)
Agility (Your speed, dexterity, etc)
Endurance (Your Constitution) Intelligence (Somewhat obvious, but your ability to learn, retain knowledge)
Perception (I'm not sure how to explain it other then "your perception and ability to notice things)
Aura (your "charisma" and force of will)
Spirit (Your “magic”, “supernatural”, “innate energy” stat; the ability to control and resist it) Luck (How lucky you are - increases the chance at succeeding at impossible odds or gambling)



Spoiler for Skills:

Skills are fairly self-explanatory, and though I've tried to keep the list fairly simple, if you want to add more, feel free to. I've have absolutely no objections to anyone adding additional material (provided they clear it with me first).

Skills have three levels of expertise to them: Novice, Adept and Master



Acrobatics
Animal Handling (& Training) [Domestic]
Animal Handling (& Training) [Wild]
Animal Handling (& Training) [Exotic]
Appraise
Armoursmith (inc. repair of armour)
Blacksmithing (inc. repair of blacksmithy items)
Brewing
Climbing
Crafting [..] (anything you want to "make" that isn't already listed)
Dance*
Disguise
Fishing
Flight (winged critters only)
Forgery
Gamble
Gem/Stone/Rock Cutting
Haggle
Herbalism (using herbs to treat wounds/infections)
Hunting
Jumping
Knowledges (Pick something, like Diplomacy & Negotiation, Astrology or Forests or...)*
Instruments/Music
Lock Picking
Persuasion (inc. influence, intimidate, manipulate, seduce, etc)
Pickpocket
Read Lips
Riding
Sabotage (disable devices and such)
Sprinting/Running
Stealth
Swimming
Tailoring
Tracking
Traps (disarm/set, etc)
Weaponsmith (inc. repair of weapons)
Woodworking


Spoiler for *A note on Knowledges (& Dance).:

Dance:
Dance is divided into styles (example being country/empire name then high/classic, folk and unique, (the first being for royalty/nobility at balls; folk is country used by commoners/rural nobles and unique is a dance unique to that empire.)
Certain dances do not go under "skills" but rather under "Weapon Mastery" due to their nature as doubling up as martial arts. These dances can be learned by characters who cannot ordinarily take 'Weapon Mastery' (Check with DM)

Knowledges:
Music: knowledge of that empire's music
History: First the empire/country is chosen, and then the skill is divided into two categories: Ancient and Modern.
Mythology: the empire/country/racial(in certain cases) name is chosen


Spoiler for Martial Abilities (or “Weapon Mastery”):
As previously noted, Weapon abilities have five categories: "Acolyte", "Expert", "Master", High Master & Grand Master. Mastery is the best you can be and Acolyte is proficient - or "able to use". Expert is somewhere in between. It's really that simple.
The list is unfinished and you can apply it to almost any weapon (within reason - no Far Eastern style weapons please in a medieval 'pseudo European' for that matter and likewise, no scimitars in a European setting. Each weapon must fit the background of the realm the character comes from.)

Unarmed Martial Arts (boxing/wrestling, etc)
Bow
Crossbow
Sabre
Short Sword
Spear
Sling
Quarterstaff
Short Lance
Dagger
Whip
etc


Spoiler for Magic:
The long and short of magic is this: Magic is an extension of nature. It's supernatural, but it still follows laws. It's a form of energy tapping; manipulation & wielding of energy. It comes from within the user. External sources are sometimes tapped, but they have dire effects. Magic is not 'nuke' style, although it can be, but it always exacts a cost on the wielder. The more magic used, the greater the cost.

There are five tiers per magical discipline, and each tier must be purchased in sequence.

Here are some examples of spheres of magic.

Blast of Air (channel air into a focused punch; or focus it form an "air bubble" around you that can block some attacks)

Weather/storm
Influence Rain
Manipulate Winds
Control Lightning
Call clouds (to an already cloudy area)

Spoiler for Signature Techniques:


Signature Techniques are innate or learned abilities, so to speak. Special attacks, or special defensive manoeuvres, innate powers – that sort of thing. There are three tiers of these: Lesser, Greater and Unique. Naturally, as the name suggests, the last is unique to the character, and cannot be taken by anyone else.

Below are some examples of attacks.

Greater:
Cutting the Wind: (A powerful sabre attack performed from horse that has potential to deliver a critical or crippling injury. On lesser opponents there is a small chance of an insta-kill.)
“Skewer” – Impale: (Impale an enemy (usually through the throat with the sabre tip reversed). This may also be used with for a "Slaying downwards thrust" style attack –used to slay a downed enemy instantly by thrusting the sabre into him)
Backstab (can backstab opponents for increased damage)
Sunder: (sunders an opponent's weapon or armour, damaging it.)
Cut-throat: (sneaks up on an unaware (mostly behind) a target and cuts their throat)
Silent Kill: (sneak attack from behind using a knotted cord for strangle attack, or a knife for cut-throat)
Dismember: (destroys/cuts off a limb, or severs a joint.)
Critical Strike: (breaks through defences and deals severe damage)
Rapid precision shot: (as name)
Whirlwind: (a series of highly concentrated and focused blows in rapid succession)

Minor:
Trample: (When on horse, may select the option to rear and trample adversaries underfoot.)
Ride Through/Overwhelming Charge: (From horse: Can elect to attempt to break-through a formation or those blocking the rider’s path. (may result in scattering/breaking the formation))
Disarm: (can attempt to disarm an adversary)
Deflection & Parry-counter thrust: (deflects an incoming attack and counters)
Bull’s Eye: (can throw a knife to an uncanny accuracy from a medium to distance range)
Camouflage: (may hide in natural terrain, adept and move more easily than most others. (not an actual attack per say))
Claw-kick: (brawling combo with brass knuckles or claws. Scratchy-catty.)
Careful Aim: (takes longer to aim, but gets a more precise shot)
Thrust: (stab attack that penetrates defences)
Sneak Attack: (when catching an opponent unaware, may choose to use a signature sneak attack for extra damage)
Street-fighter: (dagger and brawling in combination - eye-gouge and whatnot)
Steady aim: (can fight as normal during rolling seas or drunk, or otherwise movement impaired)
Bar fight: (can use improved weapons while fighting with daggers, such as tankards, chairs and generally rowdier weaponry)
Low blow: (hit vital areas on targets while in close combat)
Brawling: Grapple & Trip - unarmed combat; as name


Spoiler for Essence Pool/(Essence Points):


The Essence Pool is the sum of the character’s power; it is their inner energy, an innate source that fuels all their powered abilities, from magic to hypnosis to meditation techniques to signature attacks – it is what gives a character their power.

Simply put, the Essence Pool is a metre of Essence Points. If say, our character “Bob” has an Essence Pool of 10 EP (essence points), he may choose to spend those points on anything that uses Essence Points to power it. We’ll say that Bob has fire magic and his first spell costs five essence points to use; that leaves him with five to spend on other spells or signature techniques. Next Bob swings his sword (because Bob uses both magic and swordsplay), and spends three points on a lesser signature attack – that leaves him with two essence points left. Bob has been hurt in combat, and so, uses hypnosis on himself to speed up his recovery rate for as long as he’s in a trance. That costs his last two essence points and his pool is empty for the day, until he rests. He will recover one essence point a day, and by the end of ten days, his metre will be fully charged again. Until then, Bob had better be careful. (The values in this example are not set and should not be viewed as ‘accurate’.)

A character starts play with five Essence Points in his pool.


Spoiler for Currency:


There is a simple three coin type tier system (though the last is rarely seen):
Crowns & Pennies

(10) Ten Pennies (CP) is worth a (1) Single Crown (SC)

Pennies come in copper
Crowns come in silver


There is a third, final coin – a golden sovereign (GS).

A golden sovereign is worth (50) Silver Crowns (and subsequently, (500) five hundred Pennies)

Pennies tend to be smaller than their counterparts, being 2.5 cm in diameter.
Silver Crowns tend to be the highest form of currency that anyone aside from Merchants, Minor and Upper Nobility and of course, Royalty will use. It's rare to see gold coins in use, as gold tends to be valued a lot more highly in this world than in ours. Copper tends to be regarded as the lowest form of currency, and some 'classier' merchants won't accept it. Generally, its regarded as the currency of the peasantry - so even if you have bagfuls, it may not buy you anything within the upper regions of a city (unless you know where to look). Likewise, most peasants won't accept gold - usually because its too valuable for them to use.

You can assign yourself however many coins you wish, but as a general rule of thumb, I personally wouldn't recommend you take more than 5 Silver Crowns at the very, very most and even that may be excessive. Two SCs and a few Pennies should be more than adequate. Unless you're a noble, in which case, I'd suggest no more than three Gold Sovereigns


Spoiler for Equipment:


Equipment is pretty much left to the player's discretion but bear in mind there are no magic items or weapons. Although weight isn't taken into account, don't go over the top. The character still needs to carry everything. Check to confirm with the DM. Aside from that, you've pretty much completed your character stuff, save for the background and the like.


Optional Rules:
Spoiler for Disadvantages:

Fore word: these are optional, and it is not necessary that you take it.

How they Work:
As with the rest of the system, you ‘purchase’ disadvantages. However, disadvantages work a little differently: rather than pay XP for your disadvantages, you are awarded XP for taking them based on the severity of the disadvantage. There are five tiers of severity of Disadvantage, which each one growing increasingly in ‘deadliness’. The more severe (and how common/rare) the disadvantage, the more XP you're granted. Simple, eh?

Disadvantages may include phobias, allergies, vendettas, addictions, psychotic/compulsive disorders and the like.

A general scale to go by is:
Tier I: Will do everything within the legal boundaries to obtain objective/minor allergy/slightly annoying to others

Tier II: Will consider breaking the law for objective/prolonged exposure will make you sick/annoying to others

Tier III: Will break the law, steal – will betray friends’ trust for objective/can tolerate a small amount of exposure before being ill/people will go out of their way to cause you misfortune because you spoke to them

Tier IV: Will kill/mass murder for objective/a small exposure will make you seriously sick/you’ll be beaten, and they’ll do their best to bring about your ruin and downfall for inflicting your annoyance others

Tier V: Will do whatever it takes to obtain objective (would sell your own – and your mother’s soul)/The slightest exposure may kill you/people will kill you for speaking to them


For rare disadvantages you will get only a small amount of XP**:
Tier I: 1
Tier II: 2
Tier III: 3
Tier IV: 4
Tier V: 5

For common disadvantages, it may be a lot more – between:
Mild:
Tier I: 2
Tier II: 4
Tier III: 6
Tier IV: 8
Tier V: 10

Severe:
Tier I: 3
Tier II: 5
Tier III: 7
Tier IV: 9
Tier V: 12

Examples of common disadvantages: an allergy to nuts, heyfever, pollen, fear of the dark; vendetta against the Lords of Vision(you’d be surprise how common that is), obsession with a specific person(read: stalker); needing to bathe every day, annoying personality: arrogance – you know, that sort of thing.

Examples of rare disadvantages: fear of hornbilled toad, hunted, necrophilia(com’on, it’s not that common), allergy to a specific fruit/nut* - I’m sure you can think of some unusual conditions

There is a limit of 30 CP awarded for disadvantages. If you feel your character is some poor depraved soul who must suffer horribly – speak to me and I’ll consider it. The absolute maximum is 50 CP, however, and it may never go over that.

Finally, disadvantages may be redeemed*** and bought back over the course of the game and new disadvantages may be added. Currently, I’m thinking a straight cost exchange: a rare Tier 1 advantage would cost you 1 CP to buy out (just as you paid 1 CP for).

*Note I: this sort of thing may net you even less XP depending on how rare it is.

**Note II: the reason that 'rare' disadvantages bag a character less XP is this: the rarer something is, the less likely you are to encounter it, therefore, the less XP you receive. The more common it is... well, you get the idea.

***Note III: you can’t cancel a disadvantage unless you have XP to buy it out with though.

---

Spoiler for Character Creation: The Costs:


The first part of Character Creation covered what each section consists of. The second part details the costs:

New Characters start off with 150 Character Points(CPs) to spend. Up to an additional +25 Character Points may be granted in exceptional circumstances (check with DM)


They may spend these on any aspect of their character up to and including Tier III of any attribute, skill, martial ability, magic, & signature techniques. Use the “Level Up” thread for the cost of purchasing upgrades.
All attributes start at base 1 and may not be lowered. A character with a “0” in any attribute cannot exist and therefore, is deemed “dead”. A character may not raise any attribute past ‘3’ at character creation.
Signature Techniques “Unique” abilities cost 20 Character Points and must be justified in the character’s biography as well as approved by the DM. Unique abilities are generally more powerful than their lesser and greater counterparts.

Essence Pool/(Essence Points): A character begins with a base ‘5’ Essence Points (just as a character has a “1” in every attribute). This may be expanded at the cost of additional character points in character creation.


Spoiler for In game Costs:


Costs using the Essence Pool/(Essence Points) (per usage/charge) are as follows:

Magic:
Tier I: 1 EP
Tier II: 2 EP
Tier III: 3 EP
Tier IV: 4 EP
Tier V: 5 EP

Signature Techniques:
Lesser: 2 EP
Greater: 4 EP
Unique: 6 EP



Spoiler for "Level Up Rules"...:


The DM decides how many points a character is awarded at any given time, but usually XP is given after a task is completed, or the chapter ends - or occasionally for outstanding roleplay.

Usually though it is when a 'quest' is completed that XP is given and this is often in the realms of between 3 to 7 points, depending on the difficulty of the task and how well the characters succeeded at it.

In order to "level up", a character is awarded XP in the form of Character Points with which to purchase “Upgrades”. These may Character Points be spent on any of the items on the character sheet found below (Equipment & currency are the exception, which is bought/acquired by more conventional means - i.e. money, theft, or rewards and the like.) The costs of purchasing upgrades are listed below:

Attributes
Skills
Weapon Mastery
Magic
Signature Techniques
Essence Pool/(Essence Points)

Important: Just to clarify everything must be raised in tiers; you cannot jump ahead and buy the mastery rank from nothing. Each tier is bought and paid for separately, in order.


Upgrades

Attributes:
An attribute costs are as follows:
6 points to increase to 2
8 to raise it to 3
12 points to raise to 4
16 to raise to 5

Skills:
A skill raised to Novice level costs 2 points
A skill raised to Expert level costs 4 points
A skill raised to Master level costs 6 points

Weapon Mastery
Martial skills raised to Acolyte cost 3 points
Martial skills raised to Expert cost 5 points
Martial skills raised to Master cost 7 points
Martial skills raised to High Mastery costs 15 points
Martial skills raised to Grand Mastery costs 20 points

Magic

Tier I – costs 5 points
Tier II – costs 7 points
Tier III – costs 10 points
Tier IV – costs 15 points
Tier V – costs 20 points

Each tier grants a single spell per ‘type’ of magic. Each tier must be bought in order before the next rank of tier may be bought.

Signature Techniques

Each Lesser Meditation Technique purchased costs 10 points
Each Greater Meditation Technique purchased costs 15 points
Each Unique Meditation Technique purchased costs 20 points*

Essence Pool/(Essence Points)

A character may purchase additional (or extend) Essence Points for his Essence Metre/Pool. Obviously, this increases the amount of times he can use his powered/charged abilities.

It costs five Character Points to extend the metre. The metre is extended three EPs. This may be bought multiple times and each time, the metre increases.

Note: No more than fifteen essence pool total at startup for mortals, and in-game above twenty requires DM permission.
*Unique Signature techniques may only be bought once and must be cleared by the DM.


Final Note
Any left over or unspent character points are added to the XP header - example: Bob has spent all but five of his character points. He now puts those he has not used on his sheet:
XP
Current XP: 5 Character Points
Spent XP: - Character Points
Total Awarded XP: - Character Points (+ reminder 5 from creation)

Weapon Mastery (15)
Mastery: Dagger (thrown & melee)

Signature Techniques: (55)

Greater: Cutting the Wind: Thrown daggers/knives return to her hand after striking the target with deathly accuracy. She can pierce with precision accuracy, striking anywhere on the target's body - though she normally aims for a nerve point. Recalling the dagger is optional.

Greater: Fan of Blades: Isokla can throw multiple daggers at once, in a 360 degrees arc around her if she so chooses. Up to three daggers may be thrown per 90 degrees arc. In addition, for this one attack, if Isokla is using her 'fan blades', she can have her daggers split off at the hilt into three shards and reform them after the battle is over. These daggers do not return unless 'called'.

Greater: Meditation: – restore essence points equal to Spirit & Aura attribute divided by two, rounded down. It takes an hour per essence point regained and the character is in a trance all that time; he feels what is going on around him, but he cannot act unless he breaks concentration, meaning he has to start over. As such, he is more or less helpless.
(e.g. If Spirit & Aura together were 5, 2 points would be regained over the course of two hours - bearing in mind the cost of using the Meditation technique is 2; thus only making this effective with high stats. Ordinarily a character regains 1 essence point a day)


Lesser: Isokla can recall any of her daggers at any given time, as long as she is within range. The range varies, but as long as she has a clear line of sight, or knows where they are, she can recall them easily. If they are close to her, but she cannot see them, she may also recall them - if they are further away and out of sight, she cannot.

Background

Appearance & Personality:
Isokla is a striking young woman with elegantly refined features, a slender form and flowing silvery hair. Her eyes are pale blue, often compared to 'water opals' and if not for a shade lighter, would be counted as 'grey'. Although not one for physically prowess, she is strong in mind, soul and spirit, if not body. Despite this, her nature seems warm though not entirely open. Certain events in her past have made her wary and guarded against strangers, but to those she in need, she offers her aid freely.

Attiring herself in a simple, yet elegant dress of creamy-white, Isokla appears at once, both regal and graceful, but at the same time, common. Her dress hugs her trim form snugly, but is of a tasteful cut, giving her an aura of refinement. In addition, she adorns herself with a cloud-grey cloak and scarf, the former of which falls almost to her sandals. At her left side is her satchel, which hangs down from her shoulder and at her belt, two pouches and a dagger sheath.

Her only visible jewellery are a single silver sapphire stud in her right lobe and a long, dangling fine silver chain ending in a etched disc in her left, and a slender silver necklace studded with two grey sapphires and ending in a pendant. Both the disc on her earring and the pendant on her necklace are round circles, as big as her thumbnail, each intricately etched with crescent and planetary rings and comet designs. A seven pointed star is the focus of each disc and a tiny blue-moonstone-sapphire is set within the centre of each.
Although she does not wear it, she also has a ring with the same insignia upon it wrapped away in velvet within a pouch she keeps carefully concealed.

Spoiler for Biography:


Biography:

Isokla. In order to understand this young woman, one must know of her origins first. They begin with her mother; the daughter of a princess, though she herself was merely a bastard child. She was exceptionally beautiful, and so, was given to the local monarch as a concubine. The seventh of many more to come. Because her mother was a concubine, Isokla herself, could never amount to anything more than a bastard daughter. It did not matter her grandmother noble raised to a princess by marriage; her daughter, Isokla’s mother, was illegitimate, and so, it did not matter what her father was. As it so happened, her father was none other than the head of a temple order. He was not the one her mother was promised to; not the one a concubine belonged to. The master her mother belonged to was a monarch – the ruler of that region, and his reputation for ruthlessness was unparalleled in the neighbouring provinces.

An illegitimate child born of a concubine would never have been tolerated. It was an irony, perhaps, that this lord kept his neighbours in check by close ties with the temple of the region. A temple that had a dark underside and a cult of temple assassins at their command. These assassins led double lives, and it was of no coincidence that the leader and head priest of this section of the temple was the man who assigned Isokla’s father to run messages between himself and the monarch. It was perhaps, inevitable, that being a go-between, spy, and out-of-sight ‘shadow’ that her father would one day bump into her mother. Her father at the time was the cult master’s protégé; his youngest and best out of his other apprentices. The monarch of course, had no idea of his ally’s behaviour, but grew suspicious in time. When Isokla’s father first met her mother, she was in the presence of her rightful lord and master; serving him with several of his other concubines. Their eyes met, and he vowed she would be his; she was more beautiful than even Isokla would become, and such a challenge to take her from under her lord’s watchful eyes. Her own brilliant blue eyes were saddened; like those of a caged animal and that was the one thing Isokla’s father could not tolerate; a lotus flower should feel the air and breathe fresh before it wilted. And so, he snuck into chambers in the dead of night when he visited and befriended her. Over time, a relationship grew between them and before long, they became lovers.

He could have changed things, had he chosen; he could have made her his heir. He chose not to. It was a shame, really, for it would have changed the entire course of Isokla’s life. She never knew he was her father. However, some small mercy was for his child was shown. Instead of killing her off at birth, she was placed within the local temple. Her mother later paid for this with her blood.

While studying at the temple as a priestess as she was raised from the cradle, her father also kept him under his wing and in secret, she was trained as an assassin; she became his protégé, for by now, her father’s old master was dead – by her father’s own hand and he usurped his master’s place as head of the assassin cult. He still answered to the high priests, but he was more or less free to do as he willed. Convinently, the death of his master was blamed on his in-house enemies, as he had intended, and they were removed for the murder of their master. He had personally slain them.

Isokla knew none of this though; but as she spent her childhood training and studying, she would steal moments of peace within the temple gardens, under the blue sky, vines, trees, and flowers. Her favourite was also the name she was gifted with – after her father saw how much she loved those flowers. It became her code name. “Isokla – the Blue Lotus.”

There was a coup in the temple, though it was unknown to the girl. Although her father was unharmed, he worried for the safety of his now beloved and precious daughter; though she never knew who he truly was. In truth, she both hated and adored him; he was hard on her; harshest of all his disciples and students, but he also showed her kindness. The sort that brings out loyalty in anyone. He set her to studying the ancient prophesies and histories of the land… of the Capital. It was this coup that sparked her journey; her master and unbeknown to her father ordered her to leave; leave her home, leave her life. Give up her ways as an assassin and walk the world as a healer, as a priestess. She was to hunt down the source of the prophecy.

Shortly after she left, the temple was ransacked by the monarch. He had learnt of her father’s activities with his concubine, and he had slit Isokla’s mother’s throat. After storming the temple with his troops, the assassin cult leadership met a violent end. Isokla was spared only because she was not there.

Not two weeks later, the monarch and his entire household lay dead, slaughtered by a mysterious assassin. At the burnt-out scene was only one indication of who it might have been; a single flower, a white lotus, in honour of her mother.

By the time Isokla left, she had bloomed into a young woman and was a competent assassin, having removed many targets at her master’s and her monarch liege lord’s command. Once she left her life, her home, her wars, she left her violence behind and outwardly sought a path of pacifism – as her temple had outwardly taught. Her cover was complete.


~~~
Spoiler for In-game Clues to her personality:

In-game Clues to her personality...
- Isokla seems a traditionalist when it comes to gender issues, firmly believing that women should not fight in battles nor wear armour as men do
- Isokla has a strong sense of duty, responsibility and dedication to those who consider her their mentor/master and will feel slighted if she feels they show her up, subsequently apologising to those they are rude/abrasive to. She feels that her students should follow her lead, set by example, and if she feels a person is worthy of being 'leader', then her students should acknowledge that too, whether they agree or not. Isokla believes that what she does is for her student's own good, and feels that she has failed them if she does not maintain a sense of decency, however harsh it may appear. Because of that, she will insist that her students maintain a certain level of standards, such as dining properly, basic manners and if they are noble-born, then acting as such.

Spoiler for Background:
Spoiler for Appearance & Personality:
Ydalon's straw-blonde hair is irregularly cropped about an inch above his shoulders. His blue eyes speak of determination, and the boyish bravery grants him a posture of confidence. Indeed, if he carries doubts he hides them well. While he's obviously not used to harsh toil, he seems eager to spend the day's energy running ahead, climbing rocks, looking out over the path ahead of them. At night, worn out from the day's adventures, he typically prepares a meal from what's handy, then sneaks away to a private spot to perform an equally private ritual involving leftovers, stargazing, and bloody equipment.
Only when he feels he has regained enough energy does he return to what company he is keeping, always in good spirits and with a plan for the morrow.


Spoiler for Biography:
Ydalon is fairly new to the wandering life, but has used his past few months picking up helpful advice from those he has met. He will not often speak of days gone by, claiming the future is far more important than the past shall ever be. Yet while he gives no reasons for living as he does, it is clear to the more perceptive observers that a girlfriend was almost certainly involved in his decision to leave his family behind.
The skills that Ydalon possesses suggest that he is not a violent individual, and that he enjoys some level of education. He is a quick learner, and enjoys practicing new skills. These days, he typically makes his living by charm, opportunity and a bit of unlawful conduct.

All Telryn’s other items are still in what was the prison.


Spoiler for Appearance and Bio:

Appearance & Personality:

Telryn is fairly tall for a human. The way he leans over people as he talks to them gives people the impression that he is intimidating. This is far from the case, but it does make his life easier.

He has short, ruffled, black hair and dark brown eyes.

He can be quite jovial if people are friendly in return. He is, however, extremely cold towards magic users, no matter whom they are.

Telryn has a scar across his left cheek from a bar fight which broke out in the town he was working in. They soon regretting throwing bottles around, as Telryn threw them out onto the street in their birthday suits.

If someone pushes Telryn, he will push back, usually twice as hard. He is the one who, in fights, causes the most pain, but also gets the most injuries if the fight isn’t over quickly.


Background

Telryn was born into a poor family in a large city, the city of Port Fallenham. He worked his way up until he became Captain of the Guard. Unfortunately this led to many problems with gangs, groups, especially one group involving fire-based wizards. As Telryn did not let them get away with things the last Captain of the Guard have, the group burned down Telryn’s home, his family. He spent the next three years hunting down every last one, which gave him a hatred of magic. Being exposed to such a vast amount of magic has given him a high resistance to it. Most basic spells will hurt him very little. Fire spells, however, will cause great damage to him, as he has a phobia of it ever since the incident with his family and the wizards. A campfire will not bother him, although he will never be the one sitting close gazing into the dancing embers, but an uncontrollable inferno will terrify him.

Telryn will work for the greater good, but if it is needed he is not afraid to stoop below moral boundaries to get the job done.

So far this is just a copy/paste placeholder, still needs modifying according to new rules.

Spoiler for XP points:
Ok, here goes counting the points the character currently has:
Attributes: 0+6+(6+8)+(6+8+12)+0+(6+8+12)+6+0 = 78
Skills: 3*(6+4+2)+2*(4+2)+6*2 = 60
Weapon mastery: 2*3 = 6
Magic (I'll convert what was previously major to tier IV): 15+10+7+5 = 37
Signature techniques: 0
Essence pool (let's make it 15 starting points): 25
Disadvantages: -7-8 = -15

Which gives a total of: 191 used of a total of 229 (200+15+14), giving 38 unused points

None

Special Ability

Manically Depressed

Background and biography

Born in a poor family living in the countryside, Nivram could look forward to a bleak existence, doing exactly what his father had been doing and what his grandfather had been doing before that. Due to not having any friends, he developed depression in his mid-teens, and in his early thirties this even turned into manic depression. In his opinion even plants, and inanimate objects like chairs are happier than him.

Around the house he learnt what his father taught him and potent healing magic from his sister, who had married a mage and visited occasionally.

When Nivram was 16 a band of outlaws attacked their home and killed his parents and two younger brothers. He went to live with his sister, who was 11 years older than him

His sister's husband taught Nivram much about the human psyche and the ways in which the human mind worked. These studies gave Nivram an even better opportunity to come up with wild theories as to why he was depressive. At the age of 25 he left his sister's home and wandered around, looking for a purpose in his life. But he did not find one. Three years later he returned to see his sister, but was told that her husband died due to an illness and she moved away with her infant son.

Seeing all the misfortune life piled on top of him and his family Nivram became even more depressed and set out to find his sister.

He has been looking for her for the last 9 years.

Apperance & Personality:

Although he looks physically charming as soon as most people get to know him and see his manically depressed side they turn away from him most of the time. However if someone would have managed to see through his outer shell they could have spotted a very fragile, caring person inside. But that side had been long hidden and only his sister had ever managed to see it.

Your posts - in the first one, you say that Jason plopped himself on the ground - how can he then take a step backwards? I'm kinda curious to see how he'll pull this off with Nivram on top of him, as it were.


To everyone else: I forgot to mention IC that you don't have any of your inventory. In case you were wondering

Do mention though that we still have clothes. Common decency dictates it that no one wants to see the others (except maybe the girls) naked.
