Hello everyone.

There is a "Character Profile" section of the OOC and I would like all profiles to be put up in that section.

Thank you.

If you have any questions about the RP please don't hesitate to ask.

Birth Name: Haku Yukimura
Character Alias (If applicable): Haku
Written appearance: Haku wears the exact clothes above, except they are White, and the parts that are beige are Red. The robes he is wearing fall to his feet, and he wears Shinobi Tabi. He has a white Katana strapped to his waist, and hidden pockets filled with poisoned Needles all over his body. His face too is in a picture above, except he has
Sex: Male, Despite his feminine appearance.
Home Nation:
Current Location/Residence: He lives in a small Pagoda Style house in a Forest close to Cre'Est
Age: Twenty - Three
Height: 5'5 Feet
Weight: 95 lbs
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Dark Brown
Complexion: Pale Whiite
Body Type: Slender
Blood Type: A Positive
Fighting Style (*Hard or Soft?): Soft i suppose. He focuses on doging and then using Acupuncture to his advantage.
Adaptability Ratio**: Very High. If he were in a fight and someone were to pull out an extreme weapon, he would quickly adapt to fighting it. Maybe an 8 Out of 10
Personality: Haku was a good-natured, compliant, and eager shinobi, believing that a person becomes truly strong when they have someone important to protect. Despite his talent for battle, and incredible abilities, Haku disliked needing to kill others in his role as a tool, and avoided doing so whenever possible. When forced to face an opponent, Haku did all that he could to avoid inflicting great harm, even putting them into a death-like state to prevent them from fighting further, Despite this, however. He is an Assassin, and sometimes is able to push past his weakness and kill.
Quirks: His mask and overly feminine appearance.
Likes: Peace and quiet, Silence, Harmony, Stealth.
Dislikes: Noise, War, Pain, Having no purpose.
Special Talents/Skills: He has a skill for evading and countering. He uses these needles hidden in different parts of his clothing to wound and kill enemies.
Weapon/s of Choice: Needles, White Katana.
Weapon/s of Last Resort: Senbon Poisoned Needles.
Weapons you avoid: Maces, Hammers and anything of the sort.
Weapon/Training History: He has undergone Mental Training more than anything. He has learned how to fight and evade from living on the streets as a child. He does Acupuncture as a hobby, so that adds to his Senbon arts, and it's just common knowledge in his family to know how to fight with a sword.
Biography: Orphaned, Haku became a child who was wanted by no one and was forced to take to the cold streets and rummage through trash bins for scraps of food, even sometimes having to fight off the wild dogs that roamed the streets. In time, he was confronted by Zabuza Momochi, a man who had "the same eyes" as him. Zabuza later asked Haku to become his "weapon," which meant to become a dedicated shinobi for Zabuza. Haku readily accepted this role, due to the purpose it gave him, and devoting his life to becoming the ultimate tool for Zabuza to use. Zabuza then trained Haku in the ways of the shinobi, as well as every fighting technique that he knew.

Eventually, Zabuza died of Ilness, and left Haku on his own. For three years he has been searching for a purpose, and being a Tool - A weapon in the war could be his purpose.
I guess that makes me the LUCKY one.

Literally back and forth, taking care to include as much detail as you can about interpretation of what is said and including any changes in body language or tone of voice that you can detect. But yes, since it's currently a 1x1 RP until I can get some new characters, feel free to continue on as you have been, and treat Shadow as an NPC. When I respond, I will do the same.

Any of the folks from the first Assassin's Pledge still around? Would they be interested in a second round? No offense intended, I just think that a few more people would help the story develop a bit. Especially if they're as good as you.

By the way, I thought I'd ask: Is there any tips you could give me? I can't really tell if I'm doing well or poorly. It's all sort of new to me.

The old AP crew are too busy with life to get involved (that and there's one I don't want involved because they kind of killed the first one anyway). So yeah, no luck there but I'll keep looking.

I'll be honest with you, I thought you were pulling my leg when you said you were new to this. You're a fantastic writer from what I can tell, and are a much better RPer than a lot of others I've been involved with. So just keep doing what you've been doing because it's really great stuff and I'm very pleased with how you've handled yourself and your character.

I don't have any advice for you but I do have a request: When you use Shadow's words in your post, put them in italics. This tells me that the words are not those of your character, though do be careful because any inner thoughts of your character should be in italics as well. The only thing that distinguishes them are the quotation marks that go around quotes.

Anyway, thumbs up!

I would adhere to that, but the problem lies within what's available to me, rather than what I can remember to do. As of late, I've been typing these out on my mobile, being thrown between houses like a ball in a battery. I can see what's possible, but most of what I post is unedited and spawned from my notes section on my Ipod, which doesn't offer much beyond a rudimentary keyboard set-up.

Like I said though, I'll see what I can do. If nothing else, I'll find a word-esque app and use that.

...and if you don't mind me asking, who derailed the old RP and how?

It's not a problem. I can't expect you to post every single day, you know. You have a life to live and I don't expect you to change it just for the sake of something as simple as this.

Excellent news MaxStokes.

I sent a pm to Kaede so I hope to have an answer to the question soon and I apologize for the hold up. When we have this sorted out I'll give up an update on what we're going to do to continue.

Okay, it's been twelve days since Kaede was online so I have to assume that something extreme is keeping her away. I will still give her the benefit of the doubt and the chance to catch up later, but for now I am going to continue the RP.

I'm really REALLY sorry.

I won't go into the boring details, but I've had a pretty effin' hectic past few weeks. Between visits to my dementia ridden grandparents, school finals, out-of-town trips, and computer problems; I've been swamped. I should've taken the time to of sent you at least a message explaining my absense, but I couldn't find much time to do it...and I felt pretty guilty.

Again, sorry.
