    Random killing happens, then The Moffgical princess turns up, the Gordon makes an arrival and fires missiles at everyone.

    So ... much ... godmodding ...

    Actually, the reasons Raz hates the Cult aren't too petty. They attacked him and his girlfriend. The reason why the Cult hates Raz are petty. Well, sort of. He sold them a diamond with a pretty discription (it was black!), his spell went wrong and (I think) released something from the diamond, making it white and not worth as much. In the meantime, the 'something' drained Terrowin's magic, nearly killed one of the cultists, drained all of the cultist's magic, and so on until eventually it was killed/banished/destroyed. Then Raz proceeded to take the money spent on such a unique diamond, although now it was not so unique and therefore not worth as much. Terrowin disagreed, and Raz tried to kill him and the cultist. Fortunately, the cultist was saved by healing magic after both fatal wounds.

    At least, that's how I remember it.

    It's funny in a lot of ways Ory is totally a Sue/Stu I made him to have the most fun/cool lifestyle I can imagine. Then he started acting all emo...

    But I'm sure Vance being a Wizard would score higher due to his shapeshifting/blasting specialty.

    Protip to self - start using the herald.

    That's basically right - it was a powerful abyssal diamond that reacted badly to magic. Terrowin cast the (healing!) spell that actually summoned the thing, although IC it would be very hard to establish.

    Raz resented the idea that it was his fault (which it kinda was), and took the money and shot the gnome in the belly cause he threw a knife. He wouldn't have killed him. Although of course the cultists didn't know that.

    This was all before I learned the best way to introduce a new character is *not* to wreck the BDD with a huge monster

    Raz shot someone in the belly that he didn't mean to kill? I know healing magic makes light of all wounds, but gut wounds are Srs Bsns.
    In times like these, it's helpful to remember that there have always been times like these.

    He'd seen Terrowin heal just earlier, and assumed anything non-lethal could be fixed. Also, it was my first or second day here

    Not that much changes. Raz shot Raril's legs off thinking they'd heal easily >_<

    They'd also just been drained of magic. Wouldn't that have caused him to think that maybe they didn't have any magic left to heal with?

    True. But between his horrible curse, dual-katanas, constant fight to control his mind, tragic backstory AND angst..... Yeah, stupidest character ever.

AMEN was an RP setting all to itself for the longest time, and had a sort of lazy "Godmodding is allowed, but it has to be silly" policy that was typically usually cited and abused to murder the newbies and smack them around for whatever spelling, grammar, or ego issues we decided had earned them the death penalty.

    Later on, when things were finally starting to improve and get less ridiculous with the introduction of GLoG, someone irrationally decided that AMEN was to be a "plot-free" zone, and that none of that icky, interesting, engaging RP going on between AMENites and GLoG members could go mentioned in the base, for fear that plot pixies would eat us all in our sleep or something.

    After that no plot nonsense, it died out completely, until Gordon came along with his UFO and helicopter and stuff, and turned it into something I could stop being ashamed of, which is around when Maggy waltzed back in and instantly got promoted to second-in-command. I'm not sure why, but my guess is it's because Gordon saw his reflection on the side of Maggy's head and immediately fell madly in love.

    THE MOFF

    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Human, at least outwardly.
    Age: Twenties. He lost track.
    Alignment: Pretty much chaotic evil, but not to the extent others might take it.
    Class/Profession: Layabout/Rogue
    Power Rating: B-
    Description: The Moff is on the short and wiry side of average. He has unremarkable brown hair and eyes, but his hair does tend to be a tad long and shaggy. The Moff wears a grandiose, if faded, grey uniform, complete with medals. If anyone asks what army it's from, he stares at them blankly and says They call me The Moff, don't they?
    Personality: The Moff is lazy. He doesn't particularly like extended physical exertion, and will go to great lengths to avoid it. Mental exertion is fine in his book, though, and he seems to gain a good deal of pleasure from debating and bargaining. He's cheap, but his flair for the grandiose and appreciation for artistry has him spending plenty of money. Since returning to Nexus, he's gone, as it were, off the deep end. Not all there. Bat-sh*t. Whatever you want to call it.
    Equipment: The Moff always carries several concealed knives on his person, just in case. "Just in case" happens to him more than he would care for. Recently, he acquired a pair of Objects. The Cost is an unremarkable looking butterfly knife, but there is not a substance or spell on earth that it can't slice through like warm butter. Synchronicity is a battered old harmonica that facilitates, essentially, the rule of awesome. The Moff doesn't understand how it works, really, but it allows him to get away with all sorts of shenanigans.
    Abilities: Despite his aversion to physical effort, The Moff is very fast, and can sprint fast enough to make Rincewind proud, though usually only when someone is chasing him. He's also fairly handy with those knives... he's picked up the ability to travel via the Yellow Road recently, and between that and Synchronicity, he's capable of all sorts of mind-bending or otherwise unlikely feats.
    Backstory: The Moff has been loitering around Nexus for a few years; no one knows (and neither does he, to be entirely honest) where he was before. He tends to disappear for months and years at a time; no one has bothered to find out where and why.

    You know, doing that test for the NEXUS is pretty near impossible, since when you're in the NEXUS nothing is really unusual, so it doesn't warrant being ticked.

    And this is why I recommend people not do a Character Registry until they've given their character a chance to settle in.

    In other news, I'm experimenting with a new style of Digest Post - a long first person year end update. The first one is by Charity. I'll probably do one for Sunny too, and maybe another character or three. Definitely not all of them though.
    In times like these, it's helpful to remember that there have always been times like these.
