Just an announcement,

To whom this may concern,

Those persons that were present in the interest check for this roleplay get priority pick. I'm right now looking to fill four or five other spots before starting. Once they have submitted their characters and if there are any spots left available, it will be open to the rest of the public. The reason for this is that they were present during the early stages of development, and it's only fair that I reserved their spot if they wished to join.

Also, it's getting very lonely in here. And awkward since I'm...talking to myself.

If anyone has questions feel free to ask.

Several people have pm'ed me about some confusion and difficulty with the character sheets, or lack of.

So to compromise, I'm going to write up a standard conventional character sheet to help you guys get started. Of course, the other stipulations that I put out will still apply afterward. I'll probably have to fix that part in the introduction page.

I'm not gonna get everything right the first time around so bear with me guys.

To the people who already sent in characters, you'll probably have to go back and edit things, as will I with my character.

Sorry to anyone who had issues with that.

Got most of my sheet worked out except personality bits. Could probably have written more but I hate sheets as it is. Sure I'll be adding to it a lot throughout the course of the RP.

Alright guys, I'll be having internet on and off, so my replies might be far and few since I'm traveling this holiday.

I just want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas as you work on your character sheets. I'm excited to see how things are shaping up. We've got an interesting number of faces so far. We'll talk plot briefly after I come back before I get the ball rolling.

Well, Antius is finished for the most part. I just have his magical level and resistance left, but I left it blank since magic and magic resistance is still to be officially determined. :)

Hey guys, I'm baaaaaaack!

@Weilacca and Noremac

Feel free to submit some characters. I'm going to cut this off on Thursday for submissions. If you are lurking, this is your 2 day warning.

@Everyone else

I'm on my phone right now, my computer access is limited. I'm reviewing your characters right now, expect PMs coming soon, but maybe not soon enough.

The following two points will apply to everyone, because I don't want to have to individually nitpick at you guys for these little things

Please make sure you give the general CS a look over and your WIP a look over. Some people are missing categories that I listed. I promise you that the CS has only changed once so far. If that's you, and you know who you are, get to fixing. Ask questions, can't stress that enough. I might not have all the answers all the time, but I at least appreciate someone bringing it up.

Secondly, make sure you've got your character's thumbnail inserted. The 100x100 that will be the face of your character when someone comes to that page of the roleplay? Yes that one.

Now, I also know that we are all missing information for certain categories in our characters, that's my fault. I haven't updated the Magic and Flow thread, expect a small info dump soon on that in the thread.

So far the characters look promising, that much I'll say.

Let's talk plot, all of us are starting in or around the colosseum of Opynonias, is everyone clear on that? If you are not, then you need to look over the introduction page to freshen up.

Edit: Someone asked me what the strongest metal of this world is. I personally haven't established that, I figure it might be something that mortals don't come by. For something that is ubiquitous, durable, and simple, steel might be a good choice.

We have to ask what is meant by "strong" because any piece of metal can rend flesh, I think? If we have any combat buffs in the house, feel free to chime in with your thoughts.

Personally, I don't focus on things like power levels and weapon details because this is not and will not be purely a fighting roleplay. All fights will be pre-planned like a cinematic fight scene rather than a video game boss battle.

To the combat buffs, sorry.

Magic and Flow have been given a brief info dump, sorry for the rather late dump.

I'm kind of suffering from a headache right now.

Hope it clears things up. I wanted there to be some level of parity between the two forces.

The map is taking some time, because I'm a GIMP noob. If you have trouble establishing a place of birth and describing your character's geographical history. I would advise not to make any specific mentions on directions that you don't know of and you will be fine. Generally speaking, we are somewhere in the continent of Dessor, and populations tend to be somewhat mixed.

Here's a preview of the map.

http://i.imgur.com/nBOijwV.png

Dessor is the large middle continent. Syakh is the continent to its southeast, Jilel is to the east, and Norcuma is the one far to the west. Opynonias is somewhere in that strip of land jutting out from Dessor to the south and lying just across a narrow sea from Syakh. That's what I'm aiming for, as the general locations.

Looking forward to writing with you all. I work long hours doing nothing but I can't bring a computer to work so my posts might be shorter at times due to having less time or I may post from my phone. in the case of the latter please be a bit forgiving if autocorrect makes me its servant.
