Title: Yggdrasil: Online Epoch: Sign up!
Post by: Scorpio on October 19, 2013, 06:47:17 PM
In the world of Zephyus, the ballance of power is shifting. A war is theatening to engulf the continent and plunge the world into darkness. But which is worse? The Dark or the Light?

 The known world is only the continent of Zephyus because sailors do not travel away from it. If they do, they can never find their way back.

 The elements you can choose from are Fire, Water, Air, Earth, Dark, and Light, but only if you're a mage. Most characters are not magical.

 The classes are:
 Swordsman -> Duelist: Skilled sword fighters that value speed over strength.
 Mage -> Magister: Users of elemental magic who seek ancient knowledge.
 Cavalier -> Paladin: Horse mounted lance users with a sense of justice.
 Corsair -> Captain: Sea-fairing, axe weilding warriors.
 Archer -> Marksman: Bow-using, hawk-eyed hunters.
 Guard -> Knight: Heavy-armored lance users.
 Healer -> Justice: Staff using healers who gain a blade when the advance.
 Sorcerer -> Necromancer: Users of the Void magic. Dark and deadly. (NPC)
 Mercenary -> Brigadier: Lightly-armored swordsman. Fast and strong.
 King: Users of all weapons. (NPC)
 Chancellor: Users of all magic. (NPC)
 Mage Fighter -> Magister Knight: Magic-using, sword-slashing warriors. (Nyran.)
 Chaotic: Master and creator of the Void magic. Uses a cused blade. (NPC)
 Blade Fighter -> Blade Master: User of unkown magic and a powerful sword. (My character, Zeth.)

 The countries you can choose to be part of are:
 Helios: Kingdom of the Sun. They are valiant warriors and the sister-nation and ally of the Kingdom of the Moon. They believe in warriors and stories of heroes. They always fight with honor and serve their King, King Solomon, with pride.
 Diana: Kingdom of the Moon. A proud nation of mages and ally to their sister-nation, Helios. They prize magic over might and Queen Stephanja is beloved by her people.
 Velge: The nation hidden in the mountains. It needs no walls, the mountains are all they need. They do not interact with other countries often, they prefer to be left alone to do what's best for only their country. Their King, Syrus, is cautious to a fault.
 Lyris: A nation that prizes knowledge above all. Great Magisters call this place home. The High Magister Serena is spearheading a cultural revolution to try to bring their knowledge to the outside world.
 Aether: Noble nation of fighters and the only country that has not seen war for 1000 years. The Emperor Sevros is known as the "Iron Emperor" because he doesn't change his views easily. People try to advance their culture before they die out.
 Sicilia: The Country that loves the sea. The finest of Zephyrus' captains have come from Sicilia. The people are know for their ships, their food, their winw, and their unique swordsmanship. They have no king, but are ruled by the Grand Admiral of Sicilia, Roran Marelli.
 Takayama: An island nation off of Zephyrus' coast. Known for their blades. They are ruled by their emperor, Kisuke Narukami. He is young, but wise beyond his years. He tries to listen to hi; people more than lords.
 Erebus: A once-great utopia of a nation now lost beneath the sands. Some ruins still stand. (N/A)

The sign up sheet should look something like this.

Name: Zeth.
Class: Blade Fighter.
Country: Aether.
Weapon: Steel Sword.
Age: 19.
Appearance: Zeth is a pale, young man with white hair, blue eyes, and a happ personality. He looks slight of build, but he actually is well muscled. He wears a dark blue tunic, grey pants, black boots, a black belt, black finger gloves, a black cloak with blue insides, and a steel chestplate beneath it.
Bio: Zeth never really knew his parents, so he grew up alone since age 4. He was taken in by a mercenary company and trained with them since he was 5. He left on his 19th birthday to journey across the continent looking for any leads to who he really is. He is very happy-go-lucky, and always tries to think his way out of situations before using force.

Weapons must be basic at this point in time. You will get good ones later.

It's good. I'll go edit the Mage Fighter and countries.
Title: Re: The Sacred Swords: Sign up!
Post by: Aether on October 20, 2013, 05:00:35 AM
Well at least I can add the bio here. Nyran took the mage fighter sooooehehehehehe

Name: Fairy Veene
Age: 16
Appearance: Fairy has light green short brown hair, parted on both sides. She seems to always have a worried look on her face, happy or sad. She usually wears a dark blue buttoned shirt and a black skirt, black socks and white shoes.
Background/Personality: Fairy's a pretty shy girl, but that just brought more people to like her. Throughout her whole life, people she never even talked to tried to ask her out. She ends up getting accepted in any environment, and everyone is cool with the activities she likes to do, which range from trying out cooking to playing rpgs. Fairy tries to help people out if they're in a bad situation; if she can't help she just motivates them one way or another. Despite her innate likeability she secretly envies the other people able to converse without any fear of making mistakes, "confident people" if you will. That with having a bunch of random admirers is the reason she escapes into the virtual world, where she can play well enough that nobody hates her (not that anyone ever did but you know, mind tricks).
Name: Leo Nomia
Age: 15
Appearance: Leon has slightly pale skin, and dark hair going down to his shoulders. He requires reading glasses. Leon usually wears a dark green coat (unzipped). Under it is a plain white T-shirt. Of course he wears jeans and sneakers too.
Background: Leon used to be an average middle school student, until his 8th grade. He built up courage for 5 months to ask out a girl he liked. However, she said she couldn't because she was moving to another state. That wouldn't have bothered him as much, if a group of kids saw him ask her out and laughed at his face when she walked away. This continued for a week, when he just got tired of their bullying. He refused to go to school, or even leave his room for that matter. He did find a joy in RPGs, where he could craft his own perfect people, and jump into a community that knows nothing about him. He's been doing this for a year now, mastering the art of being a shut-in.
Personality: Leo is self-reliant, preferring to play solo dungeons and stuff. Leo's developed a dislike of meeting other people in real life, referring to anyone who wants to know more about him "bullies". However he does like it when he's just acknowledged as a good guy or a good player. (Bit confusin aint it. Yep it is). He does feel softer against girls, so far they haven't done anything to him.


Name: Nayami
Class: Mage
Element: Fire
Country: Takayama
Weapon: Aside from the magics, Nayami owns an orb that can be sent out to damage or can bring a fiery aura to an ally
Age: 15
Appearance: Long braided brown hair slung over her left shoulder, blue eyes, wears a light blue off-the-shoulders dress and liy tiger armlets and boots.

Bio: Nayami once went to training for the sword, but she could never fully appreciate it. Why swing a metal stick at someone? What's so cool about that? However her grandfather saw potential in her so she kept at it. She was at the top of her class, in fact, but on the final examination day, something strange happened. Nayami hadn't known that the final part of the test was to duel with someone else, to the death. The boy was Alfre, a boy weak in body but strong in mind. There was no way she would fight this talented boy, she would kill him too easily. She threw down her sword, to the shock of everyone around her. But to her shock, Alfre did the same thing. The instructor was angrily about to expel them both, but the headmaster stroked his beard and nodded. He stood up, to get the attention of all in the room. "THESE STUDENTS HAVE DECIDED TO THROW THEIR WEAPONS AWAY," he shouted. "BUT WHAT YOU SEE AS STUPIDITY AND COWARDICE, I SEE AS HONOR AND BRAVERY." Nayami and Alfre looked at him with curiosity. What was he talking about? What's going to happen to them? He motioned for them to speak at his office.

The two children sat down. The headmaster spoke, "I think you two are far more than worthy for a different style of combat I have been testing out." He put down two orbs, one a ruby red and the other a sapphire blue. "These orbs can be manipulated through the willpower of it's wielder. Go on, put your hand on one." Nayami placed her hand on the ruby orb and Alfre the other. The orbs glowed for a few seconds and faded back. Nayami felt power surge through her. "You see, doing what you did has proven to me you two are destined to learn the ancient magics. Combined with this new technology, we feel you can be an unstoppable force to protect those who cannot protect themselves. Nayami, you have chosen the power of the sun. Alfre, you have chosen the moon. Together you are the celestial mages we shall in time learn to revere and respect."




Name: Alfre
Class: Mage Fighter
Element: Water
Country: Takayama
Weapon: Alfre wields an azure crystal ball to perform his magic with, and a rapier
Age: 14
Appearance: Alfre has dark brown hair that's sorta like Felix's, I guess. He wears leather pants, a cotton shirt, and boots. Over his clothes is a green and gold robe, passed down from his father.

Bio: Alfre, as the eldest boy in his family, had to practice swordscraft to protect the (king, leader, evil dictator kim jong, whatever). He fell in love with the grace and style put into his practices, and held his own weekly mini-lessons to help tutor others to his style. His teacher heard about this, and was jealous of the students learning from Alfre just as well as they learn from him. So he filed Alfre as the top student in his class, so Alfre was to be the fight the other top student in another class, where surely he will be killed.

Alfre heard he was the top student, and didn't feel worried. He must have been the best for a reason, and now he gets to show his style to all of his village! He walked up to the stadium, and to his surprise, he saw a girl there. For some reason she was equally surprised, and stood there. Why would I kill a girl to pass the class? I don't need this. I'm not killing her. He dropped his sword, but was once again surprised when he realized the girl dropped hers first. Alfre's instructor booed, starting everyone to be a hater on dese poor children (hue). Alfre's eyes widened as the headmaster silenced the crowd. "Can't they just get off the stadium and move on to the next round?" "Dat chick got a man?" "What is the old man doing?" "Is... is Alfre going to be executed?" Questions arose from the crowd, and Alfre was asking similar questions. Then, the man spoke. "THESE STUDENTS HAVE DECIDED TO THROW THEIR WEAPONS AWAY," he shouted. "BUT WHAT YOU SEE AS STUPIDITY AND COWARDICE, I SEE AS HONOR AND BRAVERY." He motioned for the two to come to his office.

The two children sat down. The headmaster spoke, "I think you two are far more than worthy for a different style of combat I have been testing out." He put down two orbs, one a ruby red and the other a sapphire blue. "These orbs can be manipulated through the willpower of it's wielder. Go on, put your hand on one." Nayami placed her hand on the ruby orb and Alfre the other. The orbs glowed for a few seconds and faded back. Alfre felt a rush of energy flow through him "You see, doing what you did has proven to me you two are destined to learn the ancient magics. Combined with this new technology, we feel you can be an unstoppable force to protect those who cannot protect themselves. Nayami, you have chosen the power of the sun. Alfre, you have chosen the moon. Together you are the celestial mages we shall in time learn to revere and respect."

Why'd you slash out the orb?

It doesn't seem very basic
Title: Re: The Sacred Swords: Sign up!
Post by: Scorpio on October 20, 2013, 05:34:24 AM
It can be a very basic version that doesn't do as much. That way, you can upgrade it later but still have it now.
Title: Re: The Sacred Swords: Sign up!

How would you upgrade a ball :/
Title: Re: The Sacred Swords: Sign up!

By getting a better one later, duh. Haven't you ever upgraded a ball before? (I love our community.)

Name: Kareth
Class: Swordsman
Element: N/A
Country: Takayama
Weapon: Kareth carries a short, throwing knife, a long dirk, a single-handed short sword, and a long sword. She is pretty much a walking weaponry for blades.
Appearance: She is of slim stature and low height, but with a major fire in her heart and she is unafraid to speak her mind. She wears a simple chestplate and leather pants. When not wearing the chestplate, she is dressed in a basic leather outfit. She has long blonde hair and sparkling, hazel eyes.

I like it. You made it very not modern, which I enjoy because it works without me trying to fit it in. It's really good. I like it a lot.
Title: Re: The Sacred Swords: Sign up!
Post by: Aether on October 22, 2013, 10:16:39 PM
Do you think I should add Alfre as another character, or have him go his seperate way?

Post by: Ivan Strider on October 22, 2013, 11:56:52 PM
Name: Xyrus
Class: Mage Fighter
Country: Lyris
Weapon: Steel Sword
Age: 17
Appearance: You never know what age Xyrus truly is, because he can make himself look ages 12-23. Depending on day and mood his personality will change and the maturity in his face changes. He's in an awkward stage of his muscle build. He doesn't wear much to cover himself, besides his clothing that covers the lower half of his body. Good shirts his size that aren't making him 'swim' in them are hard to find, and he can't really pay for custom made shirts. This means most of the time he's wearing a shirt that's a bit tight, and if unlucky, they will rip. His dark red hair isn't too long and he has hazel eyes.
Bio: Xyrus was once weak and scrawny. He was that way for 15 years of his life. No matter what he did he couldn't make himself even a bit larger. He was said to be forever weak. He was abandoned by his parents at age 14 because of his condition. They were walking toward a large town one day and Xyrus noticed that his parents were acting a bit strangely. They had always wanted a son who would grow up to be a strong swordsman who could wield even the heaviest of blades. They got the exact opposite and thought that Xyrus would never change. So during the walk Xyrus' father stopped in his tracks. Xyrus' father was a fast walker and he was far ahead of Xyrus. Xyrus had ran to catch up to him and his mother took her time. Xyrus' father said something to him, turned around, and punched him in the head, knocking him out. Xyrus never knew what happened to them afterward. Xyrus had woke up with an older girl standing over him. She helped him up and began to talk. He told her what happened and the girl felt terrible. The girl had a horse to ride on so she helped him up onto it, got on herself and took hom home with her. The girl had a kind mother and a boy about Xyrus' age. Xyrus lived with them ever since. The girl taught him how to use magic in order to protect himself since he wouldn't be able to protect himself with his strength. Xyrus and the girl's brother trained together. They made a strong bond between them. Nobody exactly knows how Xyrus became to be the size he is now, and Xyrus can't remember either, but in truth, it didn't happen overnight. Xyrus thought himself at one point, during his early 16th year of life, able to protect himself with his strength and began to train with sword instead of spirit. As well he and the girl's brother trained together with sword as well.

________________________________

I might make another character that is the girl's brother later. Sorry for not naming people other than Xyrus, but the name Xyrus was hard to come up with. I wouldn't know what to call some of the other's I mentioned, so no names for now.

Post by: Scorpio on October 23, 2013, 03:38:56 AM
Well, he cannot be a mage fighter, if you look at the top post, Nyran took th one spot.
Title: Re: The Sacred Swords: Sign up!
Post by: Ivan Strider on October 23, 2013, 10:01:19 PM
you never said that there was only one per class...I read your posts thoroughly and nowhere does it state that. If you want people to know that so you don't have to keep telling them, you should put it in there somewhere. I find it very unfair to so somebody can't do something when you haven't even told us that it was in the rules.

This actually makes me unable to use Xyrus and I bet all of you are tired of me constantly using myself, but if I must, I must. Lately my creativity with coming up with another character has been put into the drain and I don't want to resort to altering one of my OC's again just for this RP.

I will come up with something if I must, but I doubt it will be as good as this one (and I admit it's not the very best either)

Aether was making a character for me to use. Which I I am thankful, but even if you didn't lift it it wouldn't be MY character it would just be me RPing YOUR character and it doesn't seem right to RP someone else's character just because you can't think up your own.

Oh, OK. So, I'm thinking this will start next year, after Odyssey of Light and Chaos Rising finish. This will give everyone ample time to do what they need for their character. I'll try to keep adding updates.

Name: Scarlette Novarosarum (latin for "of the new roses")
Age: 19
Appearance:
A tall, 5'7", slightly below medium frame at 127 pounds. Scar is a natural redhead beauty, with straight, copper-kissed, auburn hair which  naturally falls slightly past her collar bones. Her face was heart shaped, with a small, button-nose, and slightly large, round, blue eyes that seemed to be imbued with water of the most clear-blue oceans. Looking into them would give away two of her consistent emotions: pensivity and lost-innocence.
She often dresses in neutral colored clothing, such as whites, grays, dark blues, and reds. She almost always wears jeans and sneakers.

Background and Personality:
Scarlette is a very quiet girl. She has seen some of the worst the world has to offer, and, sparing the details, witnessed the brutal murder of her mother at the age of 11. Her father, who was out drinking, came home right in time to save his daughter from a similar fate.
As a result of this life changing event, she has developed to be introverted, and relies on herself only. Her father is overprotective, justifiably. As a result of his wife's death, he is usually drunk. However, he would never, ever hurt his daughter in a drunken state. He now works from home, and usually never lets his daughter out of the house. However, she usually doesn't want to leave anyway. Her and her father are very close, as he is the only person she feels she can rely on, and her father would do anything to keep her happy.
She has night terrors of the trauma, and as a result screams and cries in her sleep. Her dad will then wake her from her night terrors, and hold her until she falls asleep once again, feeling safe.

Throughout her schooling career, she always kept to herself. She had one best friend in which she trusted, and was always picked up and dropped off by her father.
Many people knew of her mother's murder, and so the students mostly left her alone. Some tried to become close with her, but she often pushed people away.
(more to come later)

As a result of her trauma, she often escapes into the gaming world, playing many RPG games. She often takes the role of a strong, heroic male, tough enough to take down any evil person that would harm an innocent; wishing someone of similar caliber could have saved her mother.
She also travels every corner of the gaming world, seeing everything in the world; making up for her not being able to do so in the real world.
Her most recent character is a strong and brave character named Skydbladnir Xytamnis, who travels the world with his family; something that Scarlette will never be able to bring herself to do.




Name: Skydbladnir Xytamnis (pronounced sky'd-blahd-near zahy-tAM-niss)
Class: Corsair
National Affiliation: Sicilia

Personality: Skydbladnir (Sky'd for short) is a no non-sense kind of guy. He is confident and persuasive, but also practical, down to earth, and, if he thinks you're worth it, altruistic. He always demands the respect of those around him, and gives it back in turn. He also has a very high sense of honor, and is a man of his word.

Age: 25

Backstory: Sky'd was born in one of the biggest port cities of his nation. His grandfather was one of the best captain's of the nation, and his father works with the Grand Admiral (if this is acceptable, Scorp). His family is also well known for it's fishing and trading business.
His uncle and great uncle are involved in military affairs, and they taught Sky'd almost everything he knows about fighting. He often participates in military training to keep him sharp. He is able to use a wide variety of weaponry as a result of his extensive training, but chooses to use two weapons: an broad axe, and a weapon he found on one of his trips - a beautiful trident that bears the inscription of "Kongo". He keeps the latter sheathed on his back, as he is not trained to use this weapon yet.
Upon his time on the seas, he has become highly superstitious and a seasoned sailor. He has heard every rumor, every legend, and every myth known, as he trades and works with people from almost every nation.
As a sailor, he has good navigational skills, knows how to use the stars as navigational tools, and has a good sense of direction. He also knows many people in many different nations as a result of being a trader. He has sailed the outline of the continent many times.
He has continued on the family line of expectations, and is an admirable captain and leader.
He obtained his ship from his father who no longer needs his own, and often sails with his two younger brothers. His shipmates have given the ship the name of "Poseidon" as an ongoing joke since Sky'd always has his trident. Although it is a trader ship, it is fully armed for full-scale assault and defense.

Appearance: At about 6'3", 205 lbs, Sky'd is a very large, muscular man who wears a light, long sleeved white shirt and tan cargo pants. He also wears a black bandana on his head. When wearing armor, he tends to stay on the light side, only wearing chest and forearm protection, with greaves.
He does not wear an eye patch.
He has a set of masculine, deep-set eyes that are the color of hazel.
He keeps his long, black hair in a pony tail and usually doesn't do anything with it.

Equipment: As a captain of a ship, he carries various equipment to navigate and do various captain things. When outside of captaining a ship, he keeps a belt of which he keeps his axe and money. He always keeps his trident sheathed on his back.

UPDATE!!!!!!!!

CHARACTER SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED!!!

You now have to post real life bios for your character. NOT your life, but the characters' lives. The story has changed, and now your characters are playing (?) an RPG. The RP will take place in the game, but the characters need real lives in case they get asked a question or feel like sharing experiences they've gone through.

I have got an immense ammount of time off coming, so this will be happening soon.

I will not be posting my characters or their bios to keep everyone guessing who's on what side.

Correct. The story changed since I posted this. That's why I never posted the RP's story; because I knew it would be a bit and stories change.

I'm confused. Are we creating characters who play as our characters? So like I will play as a person who is playing a video game as Sky'd?

No, I have a real story that's not just lazy writing disguised as "artful, though-provoming cinema." Go ******* yourself, Nolan.

Probably one of the saddest stories I have ever created... I hope to change her personality as the story goes on.

Although I do find it humorous that i'm a guy who will be playing as a girl who will be playing as a guy. That's definitely inception. lol.

Nice, Legend. I can't wait to start this.
Title: Re: The Sacred Swords: Sign up!
Post by: Aether on March 11, 2014, 09:10:24 PM
Man, how could I explain someone playing two peeps at once. So I just decided to make the character first, ask questions later.

OH WAIT I GOT IT

EDIT: That took a while. Think I need to modify the backstories but for now I think I'm done :/

Good. This will be starting soon, Ax, so it's really cool. I like it.

Aye, although I do not think Ivan or Soltur will be very active.

What kind of game is this? Are we using just regular PCs?
Or are we using special equipment that submerges your mind into the game?
Title: Re: The Sacred Swords: Sign up!
Post by: Scorpio on March 12, 2014, 06:04:57 AM
You all will be beta testing a new game called "Yggdrasil Online." You will recieve a headset it the mail along with a disk. Other than that, you'll be using your PCs.
Title: Re: The Sacred Swords: Sign up!
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on March 13, 2014, 06:02:07 AM
I like the name.

And by a headset, what do you mean? Something that goes over your eyes, or a helmet kind of headset, or just a communicator that goes over your ear?
Title: Re: The Sacred Swords: Sign up!
Post by: Scorpio on March 13, 2014, 03:52:40 PM
It goes over both ears and has a microphone on the left side.

Hopefully there'll be some way for other's to join later, I dunno about an rp with just the three of us

Post by: Scorpio on March 15, 2014, 04:26:15 AM
Well, It'll make it weird, but One Piece started with only three main characters and built from there.
Title: Re: The Sacred Swords: Sign up!
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on March 17, 2014, 12:57:28 AM
Nothing wrong with that. It'll keep the story tight and we should respond quickly.
Title: Re: The Sacred Swords: Sign up!
Post by: Scorpio on March 17, 2014, 01:15:45 AM
OK, UPDATE: It's most likely going to be named "Yggdrasil: Online Epoch" after the game itself.
Title: Re: The Sacred Swords: Sign up!
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on March 17, 2014, 04:27:58 AM
that's a thing?
Title: Re: The Sacred Swords: Sign up!
Post by: Scorpio on March 17, 2014, 05:05:40 AM
No, that's what the game is named in the RP, so that's what I'm naming the RP.

I look forward to Y:OE

Either late tonight or tomorrow I'll post the RP, so long as I'm not busy.

I hate to ask but, would it be troublesome if I joined  ?
I'm pretty inexperienced at RPing, so it's totally fine if it's bothersome.
I liked the concept though and it gave me an idea.
Plus, I think you guys need a healer don't you ?
Title: Re: Yggdrasil: Online Epoch: Sign up!
Post by: Scorpio on April 14, 2014, 02:27:54 PM
Again, you may join, but you will have to wait until the story opens up in the next town.

Cool beans. Should I post up my character ?
Title: Re: Yggdrasil: Online Epoch: Sign up!
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on April 14, 2014, 06:10:32 PM
Absolutely!
In regards to the story, the "game" changes everyone's appearance into who they look like in "real life" outside of the game. If that makes sense.
Scorp can tell you more. I'm not sure if he wants you to make two characters or not like we did, since we started the game. Since it's farther in the story now, I'm not sure if all players in the game have changed by the time you join us.

If any of that made sense.
Title: Re: Yggdrasil: Online Epoch: Sign up!

You can easily make your character be an inexperienced gamer who happened to get the game's beta.

That's sort of one of his points. I'm having trouble coming up with how to characterize the in-game healer though.

Here's what I got so far, I'll probably edit it a bit still and definitely once I figure out his character's stuff.

Clinton Dalton
Age: 26
Appearance:
Lanky and average height. Clint's face is stern with a strong masculine jaw that looks out of
place on such a skinny man. The long dark brown mullet hanging off his head is his pride and
joy and leaves his rather large ears exposed. Wearing his favorite trucker cap at nearly all
times, he usually wears his work boots and a simple t-shirt or beater in it's stained glory.

Background and Personality:
Clint was the black sheep of his family. His right leg doesn't work very well on account of
an accident when he was a child that he describes simply as "mower hijinks gone wrong". Due to
this he prefered more indoor activities than his four brothers. Getting heavily into RPGs
to fantasize about being able to explore the world on just his feet.

In school Clint disliked authority and slacked off throughout until he could drop out.
As a result Clint has trouble with math. Soon after he dropped out Clint had a dispute with
his mother leading to his brothers kicking him out. After this he decided he would try and
make his way in a more urban area. He moved a whole state away and lives ...in a trailer park.

He has severe authority issues and can get angry about inane things, but he is usually cheery.
How Clint makes ends meet is a mystery as he never seems to hold a job for very long, he usually
gets into arguements and walks out. How he keeps getting hired is an even bigger mystery.
He spends a lot of time tending to his terribly unssuccessful youtube game review channel.

Clint dislikes many things for bizzare reasons. He dislikes cellphones, since he believes they
are designed to emit mind controling signals. Weiner dogs since they are shaped too unnaturally.
Pickles on account of food isn't supposed to be so bumpy. Butterflies for reasons he will not
explain to anyone. Clint thinks of himself as especially intelligent, however he is not.

Clint tries his best to stay in character, but his out of place southernisms make it impossible.

Post by: Scorpio on April 14, 2014, 10:14:56 PM
You'll need to put his in-game appearance, but he sounds good. Also, you'll need to put his class.
Title: Re: Yggdrasil: Online Epoch: Sign up!
Post by: Aether on April 15, 2014, 03:16:24 AM
And you can't use the classes we've already used.

I shall wait to experience this Clint and his Clintiness
Title: Re: Yggdrasil: Online Epoch: Sign up!
Post by: Ailanthus on April 15, 2014, 07:14:23 AM
How's this ?

Demetrius Bellwether
Age:20
Class:Healer
Nationality:Lyris
Weapon: Wooden Healing Staff
Appearance: A tall thin man, Demetrius takes his appearance seriously. His face is femininely shaped,
his smooth skin is caked with white makeup. Dark eye shadow complimenting his blue eyes. 
His black hair is feathery, short with a slight curl to it.
Fond of wearing embroidered robes, prefferably in purple. Usually wearing black gloves that go up to
the elbow and beige fur scarf of an unknown beast. When he is interested in something or embarrassed
he will use the lorgnette* that he carries.

*Glasses on a stick
I figure his personality might be apparent, just a one-sided snooty narcissist.

I'm kind of confused about the appearance thing, but it's a penalty for being late I guess.
Wouldn't he just be Clint in fancy robes by this point or am I yet to transform ?
Title: Re: Yggdrasil: Online Epoch: Sign up!
Post by: Aether on April 15, 2014, 03:29:47 PM
You probably will just look like Clint, but not like Clint made it look like himself, maybe.
Title: Re: Yggdrasil: Online Epoch: Sign up!
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on April 15, 2014, 03:42:01 PM
I was confused about that too. By what the RP is doing, we have already changed. Why wouldn't you?
Title: Re: Yggdrasil: Online Epoch: Sign up!
Post by: Scorpio on April 15, 2014, 03:52:51 PM
Yeah, he'd be Clint in the white makeup, robes, and such. I just needed to know what he looked like to describe him when it's time.

Also, has Ivan poster his RL character's bio yet, anyone?
Title: Re: Yggdrasil: Online Epoch: Sign up!
Post by: Aether on April 15, 2014, 04:12:27 PM
Don't think so
