Yeah, I figured looting might not be so good for cash. Bargh. Well, in that case, Nick Castley finds a quest for his party to do, then goes out monster hunting in The Forest for det sweet money-experience combo.

There’s a reason bullying continues, and it’s people like you who say standing up for yourself and others is wrong. It’s never wrong.

First of all, you make it sound as if pointing out that somebody else is being rude automatically makes you better than them, when it actually just makes you sound like you think you’re entitled to not have your opinion examined too closely for your liking. Second, if anyone deserves to be ripped on for the bullsh!t they’ve pulled over several years, it’s developous. Yes, he has very occasionally come up with some novel concept for a game; he’s also proven time and again that he’s a bad GM with a worse personality, up to and including delusions of grandeur, and I honestly would not feel sorry for him at all or feel that anything of worth had been lost if he were to abruptly die.

Sure, party request accepted. And by the way, I don’t think buying things or forming a party should take several hours in-game to accomplish. That seems a tad silly.

Yeah, uh, you’ve kind of screwed up my character data, Gio. I added two defense and three attack, not four defense and one attack. Please fix ASAP.

Well, i tried adding stuff to my sheet, but I don’t have much inspiration skill- and personality-wise. Is it at least acceptable, now?

Most of it is fine now, but I’ll state that draining magic with just Sand magic isn’t actually possible. You’d probably need Energy magic to pull something like that off without being a bogus. Remove Draining Dust, or modify it and your available magic appropriately, and then I’ll accept your character sheet.

Alright, seems reasonably not incomplete. I think Behemoth already accepted your character sheet, but since you’ve added to it, let’s say you’re accepted, uh, again. Yes, “again” seems reasonable.

Hmmm, well, is this updated sheet any better?

That’s… probably fine, I guess, though aside from the hopefully-obvious note that all abilities can be resisted in some way or another, it occurs to me that you might want more of a personality on your character, and that you didn’t really add any other skills… I suppose the main bit of advice here, then, is “don’t play as a murderhobo”. Nobody likes a murderhobo.

Oh, I’ve been assuming that as long as it makes sense, a character will be able to do it. Can I not do something if it’s not a spell? I don’t want to have to make the spells “kick in balls, punch, run away, make fire, jump farther, land softer(wind), taunt, heat area, etc.”

I’m pretty sure you’re not mar, but I think in theory, you can do just about anything that makes sense with your magic, with spells being those effects that you’ve trained yourself to accomplish – you could do stuff outside your given spells, but in practice, there would be a good chance of those not being effective, or not having the effect intended, especially if you’re trying to pull off something complex like altering somebody’s mental state.

He has no soul, only a core of pure, vicious hatred against the Mighty Empire of Good.

Yes, he does, in fact, have a soul, just the same as literally every other living being in existence that can use magic. R.T.F.C. next time, but since it wasn’t necessarily clear in the Codex, I’ll explain this in plain words: auras, and thus the ability to utilise and increase the strength of one’s own magic, are generated from one’s soul; it therefore follows that anyone who can use and improve their magic via practice has a soul, including void spectres.

And with the power of character sheet confirmation granted to me, the following people are confirmed as accepted into this game: Blood_Shadow, with Adam. Other than a minor detail with his character sheet that needs to be fixed, Helltank, with Arkfurionsk Inferfurie, is also accepted. Regarding aeviternal’s character, I’m waiting for her Possessions, Biography, and maybe a few more spells; regarding mar’s character, I’m expecting quite a few more spells, as well as a Possessions section, even if that contains nothing.

@mar:
1. Well, you didn’t need to change him into a Sand elemental to add new magic elements, but sure, whatever floats your boat.
2. Most of your abilities are reasonable enough, but I’ll state that for Petrification Dust, which is apparently a powder that needs to be breathed in to take effect, the petrification would start from the lungs and spread outward from there, which would probably be very painful and inhumane towards anyone affected, given that the very first problem that’d arise for them is an inability to breath at all; for the same reason, it’d also be ineffective against anything that doesn’t need to breath, including other elementals and, to an extent, spiritual beings such as angels. Also, petrification is something that can be resisted, undone, prevented, etc. by magical means in the same way that other long-term magical effects can be resisted, assuming that an appropriate counter is utilised, so don’t expect it to always be effective against a target.
3. You may or may not want more spells than just the ones you already have. Four is not a lot of spells for a primarily magical being, after all.

If any regular was toxic and making bad posts, he wouldn’t be approved for regular. That’s why nobody approved ConstantProgress.

Your reasoning is flawed, by analogy ~ we can claim that there’re no corrupted politicians.

Every politician is corrupt, or at least enough to allow any number of extra corrupt politicians to enter the field of politics whenever they like. Also, what Helltank said.

[Sigh] I’m really sorry I don’t have my sheet done yet, guys. Time has not been my friend lately. Hopefully the weekend will provide some relief. I’m still tossing ideas around for my character. At first, I thought I was wanted to be a Grey Elf dhampir vampire, but then I thought that maybe I should be some kind of Xian vampire (assuming there’s not rule about Fae being vampires)… Which, brings up a question of mine; my character is a Xian, could I just basically make up a race of Xian?

By the way, I think I read something about elf genes being recessive? Does that mean there are no half-elves (half human and half elf)?

Lastly; HAPPY ALMOST FRIDAY!

Spiritual beings unfortunately cannot become undead of any sort other than banshee, so you couldn’t have a fae vampire. That being said, you could absolutely play as a type of Xian not listed in the entry for them, though I’d rather it were one that does actually exist in the real world, and it’d have to not fall under any other categories listed too; also keep in mind the personality exaggeration that your character is likely to possess, for which gamma’s character is a good example of such (serious to a ridiculous degree). As for elf genes, no species is able to interbreed amongst itself other than elves with other types of elf, though what you may have actually caught is the overwhelming tendency for forest elves breeding with any other subset of elf to have children that look far more like one parent than the other, with only a few traits inherited from the other parent, so that’s a thing.

This is a valid point, though I’m not quite sure that it would take much energy to heat up a small, thin beam of water. 100 C Beam is sent towards Strya’s opponents’ eyes; she is not recreating Blastoise’s Hydro Pump. Nonetheless, I will reword the last part, it seems too vague.

You appear to have fixed the ability adequately, so that’s a good thing. I’ll note that the beam doesn’t have to be sent toward specific locations, and any attack can be dodged or blocked by an opponent given whatever factors, so maybe change it so that she usually tries to aim for the target’s eyes, rather than it always aiming for that as an integral part of the ability.

I’ve also removed the
“Strya can also turn the steam into water any time.”
since apparently Water does not give you control over any other state, save for liquid.

I mean, if it’s a Steam/Water ability, it’s absolutely fine for Last Resort to be capable of transforming water to steam and back, since you do in fact possess both types of magic necessary to do that, though I’ll mention that transforming water into ice would also require Wind magic in order to be capable of using Ice magic to perform such a feat.

Once again, valid points. To adapt to this, I’ve added (Steam, Moderate) if that is not too overpowered.

It’s completely fine. As a matter of fact, I think your character could probably do with a bit of power improvement, if she’s apparently only going to possess a very small number of elements and/or relatively low magical skill. So, you could easily add at least two or three more elements at around the levels seen in your post, or elevate all three elements to Very High and add more spells to her character (though I suspect you were planning on adding more spells anyway?).

[mar’s character]

There’s… a few issues with this, to say the least.
1. So, what, he doesn’t have any skills beyond his racial passives? Come on, now, I highly doubt a 2000-year-old entity is going to have no learnt skills whatsoever.
2. Just Earth magic at an Extreme level of skill could be considered slightly UP. You could add at least one other element at Extreme level, or add a bunch more elements at lower levels, etcetera… basically, elementals are able to learn magic outside of their innate elements, so Granite isn’t restricted to just Earth magic.
3. Gravity doesn’t fall under Earth magic. So, the Gravity spell doesn’t work, nor does Burden, which would be overpowered anyway considering that it can apparently become infinitely massive with no limit. So, those both need to be removed, unfortunately.
4.

Granite then proceeds to do whatever he wants to do with the hands.

…within a reasonable limit of what giant hands are capable of doing. But since that’d be “basically whatever Granite was able to do before”, plus pick things up with them, I suppose it’s reasonable enough as long as you mention that he’s restricted to those things, as opposed to “doing whatever he wants to do”.
I’ll also mention, as a sidenote, that your character’s name doesn’t necessarily have to be based off of earthy or rocky substances if you’d rather it weren’t. It could, for instance, be a name like Jim, or Francis, or Adolf, or whatever.

Jehovael
One instance of me, the one which currently contains my soul, lounges within the Throne of God, my home, my kingdom until such a time as I can achieve omnipotence once again and return triumphant to the true kingdom.
The other instance of me, and the one my primary focus is on for the moment, wanders the Astral Sea, in search of realms to draw converts from, those who might convert to the Gathering and, ultimately, to enter my embrace as a part of my very being… at least until they can be reborn into Heaven proper.
Well, that’s not technically accurate either. I actually have three instances of myself actively wandering the Astral Sea right now; the one my major focus on is only that way for now because, quite out of nowhere, a realm has caught my attention. If I’m not mistaken, and judging by the overlarge blood-red moon residing within, this would appear to be Umbranox – a realm of vampires and werewolves, and one which I’ve acquired a surprising number of recruits from, partially due to it being relatively close to the Throne of God compared to certain other realms, though evidently not close enough that I need fear an incursion from them, especially since they seem more preoccupied with fighting one another than doing anything else. I wonder, then: will I be capable of converting another inhabitant of this realm to my Gathering? I certainly hope so. The Gathering of the Faithful of the True God always needs new members, after all. With a quick flick of my wings (two, as of current; much as I wish it weren’t so, not many people are happy with the presence of a six-winged angelic being anywhere outside of the false Paradise or my throne), I begin spiralling in the direction of the city-sized realm, in my head preparing a few speeches for use on both a crowd and individuals, in case either or both are needed.

Last Resort (Steam(Water/Fire))

Steam is a different element to Water or Fire, and spells that utilise Steam alone are different from spells that utilise Fire and Water without diverging into Steam. If you want her to utilise Steam, that’ll be its own element in the roster, though I’ll note that Last Resort would appear to be a Steam/Water ability.
I’m still annoyed that people don’t seem to understand this about Secondary elements: a Secondary element in a spell is not the same thing as its prerequisite Primary elements in a spell. This is important to understand. Seriously.

I asked Behe on PM but I think I’ll get a faster reply here, so..

Is there such a thing in this world like “being possessed by a demon”?

Aside from shoji, which is essentially youkai possession, and the few beings who can emulate that tactic via magical means and so on and so forth, not really. Demons themselves don’t have any natural capacity to possess a mortal being, and don’t typically have any need to possess foes anyway, so it’s not usually done by them. I will, however, state that since fae that are skilled in the use of their glamour can effectively emulate any other effect that a glamour might produce, it is entirely possible for non-youkai fae with extreme levels of skill in glamour manipulation to perform the same feat as youkai achieve naturally, and functionally turn their magical bodies into shells, project their soul, enact shoji on unsuspecting victims, and all that good sh!t, though as stated in the Codex (by the way, R.T.F.C.), shoji is a pretty horrible thing to do, and has no practical purpose beyond regenerating a lost body quickly or providing a way of quickly generating a new body for a kitsune-bi.

tl;dr: No, but you could in theory do it with any fae that has trained to the point of being able to emulate the basic youkai glamour, including a Xian that was once thought to be a demon, e.g. xecubus.

Also, I’m assuming characters with more specialized elements are in general more proficient in those elements than those with a “jack of all trades” element set.

Eg. A person with just (Extreme) Light is in general more proficient with that element than someone with for example (Extreme) Light (Extreme) Dark (High) Wind (High) Fire -despite both elements having the (extreme) attached to it

Not necessarily. The degrees of magical skill are relative to the power level of the character, and aren’t strictly representative of the actual power available to that person so much as their ability to manipulate the magic to meet their needs; that said, you’re likely to lose relative skill in an element if your power increases without your ability to manipulate that element increasing to accomodate the power increase. But as a general rule, since most players will probably start at the level of a demon Lord, do try to limit your skill in each element appropriately if you have a great number of them – an Extreme focus in just two elements may equate to only Moderate skill in all elements, or even Minor in some of the latter case elements depending on various factors.

Sorry, I thought that player characters were limited to the angelic rank of Power, rather than Principality, until I checked the rules again. So I’ve edited my character sheet accordingly.

Incidentally, BC made that post about Powers having more than one pair of arms. That’s not going to be relevant now, unless the hosting team decides to raise the maximum allowable power of player characters.

Actually, I’m pretty sure it did get changed from Power to Principality. And I’m not sure why, on that note. Also,

Demons/Fallen Angels past the rank of Lord/Principalities,

That’d be Minor Lord, if we’re keeping their respective ranks similar.

EDIT: Yep, just a typo. Ignore this.

My edit was seconds to late to avoid BCLEGENDS’ ’tude a R.T.F.C…

Anyway, I came up with the core concept for my character, so the sheet should probably done sometime this week.

Alright, that’s fine. By the way, fallen angel players, I should point out a notable bit of Power lore that seems to have been ignored:

It helps that they often possess at least one more pair of arms than other humanoids might do.

So… if you want to edit your profiles to give your guys multiple arm pairs, that’s totally fine.
