    I'm introducing a new villain who can definitely be described as "ambitious and power-hungry". I'm not sure how much use a sword will be to him, but maybe it's worth a try.

    Ambitious? Oh, Doctor Jones is definitely ambitious. Any power he can get his hands on is a worthy goal.

    I have a character(s) who fit that. They run the evil organization Massimo Incorporated (which is an open group to join). As a matter of fact, their Main Office is in Skyside. I volunteer if it's open still.

    You know it's been a long, long time since I've been here.
    I want to apologize for being a little brat during my time here. I was a 15 year old kid struggling through his emotions and it reflected in the quality of my work and roleplay.
    I want to thank you all though for the memories you gave me, there was a lot of good times.
    It's good to see that all the people I loved RP'ing with are still around. I know this might not be the thread for this sort of thing, but I'm cutting it short here.
    Thank you all!

    Hey, zefir and Recaiden? I think we might have to split groups at the riverside party as five people is a bit too much for one scene, especially since Zefir only can post once a week sometimes.

    I'll have Ryhe (edit: and Celestel) join them and the others can keep talking (with the same post order).

    Default Re: OOC 50: Over The Hill

    Edit: I made some thought about my chars for that.

    ambitious and power-hungry
    - Arkant sure fits both, thought he isn't in any way a sword user.
    - Mia can fit in, too. lett power-hungry unless it has to do with her religion. She learned to use swords.
    - Zefir would go too, but he is allways against magic. (if the weapon is an enchanted one)
    - Fade got no Ambitions, but power hungry and a sword user. With a third one he needs to learn from Zorro.

    greedy and ruthless
    - Arkant again, but still no sword user. he is really an evil type character.
    - Fade is ruthless, but not greedy at all.


    shadowcaller. Sorry for that, i just thought it's best. And i know my posting shedule. I have to admit the last times nothing catched me and I sucked at evolving my chars.
    I know there is still the fight scene up and I have to say I don't know what to do there right now.

    Mayhaps Doctor Jones could start his maniacal quest for the Greedy Cutlass? Unless other people want to claim, and if so, it's a race!

    Looks like there's quite a few characters who might be interested. I'd have my villain show interest in them, rather than the sword, but I wouldn't want to overshadow Earl's plot.

    I don't mind who goes for them, I just posted their arrival a few weeks ago, and they attract some traits that are pretty common, so I figured it was a lack of readership that led to their remaining undiscovered. And... I guess it's a plot? Really I just had an idea for a sword, then duplicated it several times to multiply it. More like a weird random encounter.

    It also doesn't particularly matter whether they're claimed by a sword-wielder or not; owning one grants some abilities. And yes, they are enchanted. That's how they've set up their magical lures, after all. Recaiden, Shadowcaller and Lord Deathkeeper already have one, and the abilities are similar. Had I planned it more, I'd have changed it so each one better fit a single colour from Magic: the Gathering, but I only realised the numbers were the same a few days after they arrived.

    EDIT:
    Not sure if you do it, but how do you all handle the same character in different areas... Such as if I were to have Liadi go to an inn, while she is fighting the skeletons elsewhere? Do you do that, or do you just make another character?

    'ello. As for plans for her? Not quite yet... Waiting to see what happens honestly, so I'm just rolling out something as I go... Although I do have a slight idea, I am going to think a while before I decide to definitely go through with it.

    I'm back! Seems it was a bit early to say I had escaped the hospital, then got caught up with RL stuff... I'm back now though.

    So would you mind if I lobbed a character at her? I don't know who yet, but I have a few ideas. Maybe even someone new, or someone old.

    I don't use the Registry; ask for a description if you don't know what my character looks like.
