I think you'll be fine if you submit the new character and mention in that post which character you're replacing.

I know the Skylessia RP had a means of checking if your profile was rejected, but I can't find such a thread here, and I haven't heard anything about the profile I posted a few days ago. So, I guess a question and a suggestion: how would/will I find out if my profile has been rejected; and maybe a thread to post when profiles are rejected could be useful?

fensti - Got the email three times, though I didn't notice that until you mentioned it. =P

Also, wow, wasn't expecting so many familiar faces (avatars?)! Then again, I'm not sure what I was expecting. =P

Name: Zedrick Zela III
Title: n/a.
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Place of Birth: n/a; closest to Lycia, see bio.
Nation/Group of Allegiance: n/a

Class: Brigand
Level: 5
Weapon Levels: Axe: D
Weapons:
Weapons: Click Here To Show/Hide This Text
The Little One (hand-axe): Iron, Projectile
A small axe with a variety of uses; Zed usually throws it at stuff though.
The Big One(heavy axe): Steel, Heavy, Armorslayer
The axe Zed had made for hunting. It's needlessly huge and can cut through iron, neither of which are actually necessary for hunting. But he wouldn't have it any other way.


Height: 6'6" / 1.98m
Build: Large, tall, wide, built.
Appearance: The first feature most people notice about Zed is his size: he's tall and wide, coming off to most people as a fleshy wall with hands. 'Fat' doesn't quite apply here though, as most of his body weight is pure muscle. Included among his small list of belongings are two pairs of identical clothes, each consisting of: a bright-green shirt, tailored specifically with his body size in mind, and thus lacking sleeves; and a pair of similarly fitted tan pants, large enough so he doesn't accidentally rip them, and by that token, large enough to fit entire children inside.

Additionally, he has a pair of boots that look like they've been eaten, digested and spit back out by a dragon. Besides his clothes and size, the only other standout features of Zed's appearance are his mop of unkept reddish-brown hair, and his green eyes.

Overview: Zed is a generally cheery person, particularly if he's just found something new: having lived in a secluded village for much of his life, discovering new things brings out a sense of childish wonder in Zed. He was raised with a decent moral compass, having been taught that killing people is bad, but he nonetheless has little trouble killing for money, assuming it's at least somewhat justified.

While he tends to be open and friendly with most people he meets, he has few to no close friends; partly because of his solitary upbringing, and partly because he's just wandering around most of the time, moving on to a different part of the continent as soon as he gets his pay.

He rarely gets angry; however, if he does, he can get destructively violent, made even worse by his immense strength and size. If something makes him sad, which is also surprisingly rare, he any number of ways to deal with it; this is likely due to his abandonment as a child. He's pretty good at hiding just about all of his emotions, save cheeriness, and as an optimistic result of what was likely a dark childhood, he does tend to actually be cheery most of the time.

Biography: Zed was born and raised in a small community living cut off from the rest of Elibe in a hard-to-access valley, nestled in the Taliver mountains. As a young child, he was raised by his father, Jed; however, at the age of nine, Jed left Zed and the village without so much as a note.

By this time, though, Zed was surprisingly self-sufficient. The other villagers showed him compassion and tried to help, but for the most part, he got on pretty well on his own. He farmed a small plot of land for his food, built on the hunting skills he'd learned from his father, and even traded hides and meat for services from the other villagers, like tailoring and blacksmithing. He got a minor education as well, as the village had a tiny schoolhouse, but the villagers were all aware the information was far out of date, so they mostly taught the basics: simple math, very general geography, language skills, and survival skills.

As he became an adult, he continued to be a stand-out member of the community, teaching the other young men how to hunt and farm, so they could support themselves. However, the longer he stayed, the longer the question of his father burned in the back of his mind. The townspeople rarely acknowledged his father, pushing aside the subject if he ever came up. So, one day, he decided to search for him. He told the townspeople he wanted to see the world, traded his home and food supplies for weapons and traveling supplies, and he set off, planning to take mercenary work until he could find his father.

I meant less in the length of posts and more in the length of time. I mean, I'm pretty sure I've finished RPs that size in much less time...specifically less than like 6 months. (IMG:style_emoticons/blue/sealed.gif)

After a month and a half of sailing across the ocean, bouncing from uncivilized port to uncivilized port and giving each a display of his seasickness, Seamus finally found himself in a civilized (in his opinion) country: Marcellus, the nation of his birth. When he spend the last of his money paying for passage off Valhassa on a tiny transport vessel, he expected it to make a beeline straight for sunny, southern Marcellus, given it's reputation as a merchant hub. However, as the captain mentioned once they'd been at sea for a day, the ship instead visited a slew of ports from Nagarath to Azgarth to Arad'uun, regions Seamus deemed tribal and uncivilized. Not to mention, Nagarath was dreadfully hot and dry.

So, a month and a half later, he found himself in a tiny port town in Northern Marcellus, near the border of Arad'uun. It was absurdly small, but it was at least run by merchants instead of crazy cultists or tribal freaks.

Yet, Seamus's relief did not last long; no more than minutes after walking off the boat did he remember he was absolutely broke; despite his fancy new robes he was glad to parade around in, he didn't even have enough money to buy a bottle of the cheapest ale. This posed Seamus a problem; he admittedly made enough money for rehab, new robes, and transport of Valhassa by acting like a compassionate preacher of the evils of society, but he couldn't pull that here; unlike Valhassa, Marcellus wasn't known for lavish living, which is exactly what he was preaching against.

Thus, he needed to find some new way to make money -- preferably one that wouldn't become obsolete between countries if he needed to relocate. However, that would take observing his audience, and doing that would require he eat food to survive, which would require money. As much as he hated to accept it, he knew he had to take some jobs as a merc if he wanted to eat in the coming nights.

And so Seamus dragged himself reluctantly through the town until he found a large board covered in layers of old and current job postings. Scanning through them, he focused on the first really easy one he seemed to find; the two-sentence ad requested people to help gather bear pelts and pointed him in the direction of a blue cart near an inn. So, figuring it'd be painfully easy and get him enough money to eat, he walked towards where he hoped the inn was, keeping his eye out for a blue cart.

When he found it, he walked up and greeted himself, replacing his glum self with his a general characterization of how he wanted to be seen eventually.

"Good sir! I am Seamus Glenroy, simple traveling preacher, at your service. I wish to assist you on your errand gathering bear pelts, if you will have me."

The man at the cart was silent for a moment, likely surprised by the nature of Seamus's introduction, then started, "I am known as Gembel. How much experience do you have in the field of adventuring?"

"Why," Seamus said, "It is how I feed myself. Preaching is not the most profitable of occupations, you should know." A lie, of course, but no common person would know that. And, indeed, the man agreed.

"Of course, of course." Gembel replied, "Glad to have you. If you don't mind, of course, I would like to wait for any more possible applicants."

"Why, surely!" Seamus said exuberantly, "You are in charge. I'll be waiting nearby." And with that, he moved to a nearby bench and sat, reading through his tome while hoping for enough of a turnout to lift any work from his shoulders.

k kool. That's basically what I figured, I just wanted to make sure that was generally accepted. Just curious since my new character is a recently-recovered addict, and I intend to get him involved in alcohol, as well as weed and probably some magical fake drug, once he gets rich again. Actually, I gotta say, I'd like to try RPing from the eyes of a drug-induced character. That's bound to at least produce some lulz. =P

Got an S-Light and 2 S-Staves I just thought of. If you're interested. =P

Smite - This spell, said to be hidden away out of fear, has the potential to be both immensely powerful and completely useless, depending on the situation. The spell causes a massive explosion with a wide area of effect, but the effects of the blast are not felt according to distance from the blast; rather, it causes pain and damage according to the amount of evil in the victim's heart. Generally, the spell destroys zombies and other monstrosities almost instantly, though with people it can range from vaporizing the target to leaving them fully unscathed. What scares many people about the spell is that it not only effects the user's allies if they are not pure of heart, but if effects the user himself, meaning only the purest of heart can wield it safely.

Bastion - The most defensive staff known, it was crafted by a paranoid bishop afraid of assassination attempts. The staff, resembling a tower even it's looks, creates a powerful magical barrier that appears as a shimmering blue haze around the user. This haze completely blocks any physical contact, as well as nearly every known spell. It leaves the user completely safe from attacks, but if the user wants to attack, they're out of luck; not only is the user immobile while using the staff, but the power needed to create the shield is monumental. So while it's useless offensively, it's the perfect staff if you just need to not get killed.

The Timebender - This staff is like a strange combination of the haste and slow staves: it can be used to, on the single being targeted, either slow down time to a stop or speed it up as far as the user desires. If the user is powerful enough, they can both speed up an enemy so much that they die of old age in seconds, as well as even reversing time, causing a target to revert back to childhood. This staff is said to take immense amounts of power to wield, to the point of draining the user's life force in proportion to the power used. Rumor even says that users have died from the adverse effects of the staff. However, it has been generally deemed either lost or simply a myth, and very few traces of it's existence even survive.

EDIT: Got some nature-anima ideas too:

Spore - Less directly offensive than most anima spells, Spore sends a cloud of poisonous mold spores flying at the target, which can have the immediate effect of suffocation, but can subsequently cause a range of allergic reactions, from breaking out in hives to Anaphylactic shock. Not a great spell to immediately kill the target, but good to at least to distract them heavily.
Rank: C

Tree - A deceptively simple name for a devastating attack, Tree causes a nearly 30 foot tall tree (who woulda guessed?) to sprout up from under the target, growing around them until they are fully encased within it and, subsequently, crushed. The spell can be extremely effective against slow opponents, but swifter opponents can avoid the tree's grasp with relative ease. If caught unawares, however, even an agile target can be ensnared. Another upside to the spell is that, whether it misses or not, it can be combined with another spell to send it crashing down on opponents.
Rank: A

Zed - Babies? I dunno...maybe? Not until I'm retired from fighting at least, if that ever happens.
Seamus, to others - My work is too important. Maybe once I can settle down.
Seamus, to himself - Pfft, fuck babies. Unless they can make a profit for me, nooo way.

I honestly couldn't tell you. If I had to say something, probably his general observations of the world. But generally the whole thing. =P

It's certainly harder than my last RP; 1 second tier and 3 low-level first tiers. As annoying as that RP turned out, fighting scenes involving Zed shredding a ton of weak enemies were fun. =P

Name: Seamus Glenroy
Age: 28
Homecountry: Valhassa
Affinity: Ice
Gender: Male
Height: 5'9"
Build: Slightly overweight, more agile than he looks.

Class: Monk
Level: 5

Weapons: Lightning, Corona, Knife
Weapon Levels: Light - D

Appearance: Seamus is fairly average in most definitions, leaning towards general attractiveness; his face has just enough baby fat to give him a friendly, jolly look, and what fat he does have on the rest of his body is hardly notable. His face is quite easily his most striking feature, with his stunning icy-blue eyes and a rather dashing smile, complete with perfectly-kept white teeth. His hair is kept somewhat short, but long enough to give his once full mane of fluffy brown hair a look of respectable age, now receded, thinner, and tinged with gray, most notably around his temples. Being important to his image, Seamus tends to use his face to it's utmost ability, having trained himself to display emotion (usually fake) to a much greater extent, as if he were an actor (which, by some definitions, he is).

The rest of his body is average, and he compliments that average with fairly colorful, if otherwise average, clothing. He tends to wear robes of blue, lined with red. Underneath, a much simpler garb of generally grubby wool shirts and pants, which he plans on replacing as soon as his income allows. His physique is misleading; he looks somewhat overweight, but thanks to his young life, he's fairly agile and stronger than he looks, though certainly not strong enough to wield any weapons with much effectiveness.

Personality: To an outside observer, Seamus is a crusader for the people. He hears the words of his lord and knows that the world is sliding into disrepair. Not content to sit back and let it happen, Seamus serves as an alarm to the sleeping people of the world, waking them from their symbolic sleep and showing them the terrifying path Skylessia is moving down. Using his intelligence, wit, charm, and morals, Seamus is out to help the people of the world get what they deserve out of it.

But hey, everyone's an actor, right?

In reality, he could give two shits about the world situation. The only holy words he intends on spreading are whichever ones get him the most money. He's a performance artist, through and through, and he uses that to his advantage whenever he can. His greatest strength, even greater than his superb acting ability, is his ability as a wordsmith. Give him any phrase and he can twist it into some way to make him money. He has no real close friends, but he really doesn't need them, since he has alcohol and whatever illicit substances he can afford at the time. Also, in his own words, "Money can't buy you love, but it can sure buy you women!"

Overall, he's fairly bitter and doesn't like people all that much. His real sense of humor is also much more twisted than his acting humor. Despite general bitterness, he is never depressed, and manages to turn any situation into general content.

Bio: Seamus was born in Marcellus to a wealthy landowner, who moved when Seamus was still young to Valhassa, having earned vast sums of money and intending on finding a more lavish, comfortable lifestyle. As a child, Seamus quickly showed an aptitude for acting, becoming a go-to person for young parts. At the same time, he and his similarly rich friends learned the joys of alcohol and drugs, and thanks to their parents, they had a seemingly endless supply. This had little effect on Seamus's acting or general social skills until, when he was still 17, his father died in a duel with another gambler, and his mother subsequently killed herself.

This is a terrible thing to happen to anyone, but to be perfectly honest, Seamus could have made something good out of this; the money his father left him was seemingly endless. Had he taken this money and used it to live a quiet life, even until he found a larger purpose, he could have lived to see 100 and still died with vast amounts of money. However, in the ten years that followed, he used a variety of substances, especially alcohol, to help cope with the sudden and tragic loss of his family. By the time he hit 26, he was nearly out of money, and addicted to more obscure substances than you can count on one hand.

He lived this way until, while drowning his sorrows in a bottle of whiskey he bought solely with change he found on the ground, he found himself watching a (free) performance of a show he once played the lead in: in the play, a strong-willed Devlani nobleman forsakes his money and power for his faith and values and helps stir up a rebellion, in the end was rewarded with money, power, and a better world (as one might expect, this show is illegal in Devlan). Between this plot and hitting rock-bottom, Seamus had a moment of clarity. He realized that not only could he no longer do nothing but drink, but that he could use his skills as an actor (especially with acting that part) in order to implement that plot in real life; maybe not with Devlan, at least until he had some kind of following, but he figured (while drunk) that it was bound to lead to some kind of monetary gain.

So he began refining his character, slowly using it, in conjunction with light magic, to astound and scare locals into believing him and throwing money at him. He isn't completely refined, and thus didn't make a load of money, but he made enough to get himself fancy new robes and a ticket off the island.

I never really thought about this until now, but what kind of drugs are available in Skylessia? I mean, alcohol is generally established, but should we also assume tobacco, marijuana, shrooms, and other naturally occurring drugs are also available? And, in lieu of man-made drugs, should we assume that magic offers some kind of strange new twist on mind-bending substances?

Just curious on other people's thoughts.

Zed's plea was answered almost immediately, first by a young, blonde-haired woman.

"Well the best way to make a name for yourself," the woman declared as she stood, "is to take on the impossible and walk away from it." Moving towards Zed, she added, "I offer you my assistance in this matter."

Before Zed could add any expression of gratitude, another woman stood. She, unlike the first volunteer, was much more striking in appearance; her crimson hair and armor of black and red, combined with her height made Zed wonder how he hadn't noticed her before.

"I'll do it." She said, followed by murmurs throughout the room. Zed heard a few whispers of "Scarlet Reaper", to which the woman replied, "Well, that's the name people call me recently," and to Zed and his other new comrade, added, "or you can call me Zofia, whichever is fine."

Zed couldn't help but feel a little jealous that so many people had heard of this woman, but shrugged it off when he realized fame isn't always necessarily for good reasons. His jealously was replaced with a slight fear that the woman could be an assassin, but pushed that from his mind as well. Following Zofia's appearance, a tan, diminutive man with sharp features spoke.

"It's a fool's choice like as not, but I'll cast my lot in with you three. Town's too smug by half. 'Bout time this cave was put t'rights."

The room was alive with murmuring again, along with some "huff huff"s and some "rabble rabble"s of disagreement.

"Dumb'n late question:" The man added, "Any idea what kinda trials these are?"

"How should we know?" replied the old man who spoke of the cave earlier, "No one has come back alive. All's we know is that there's somethin' still livin' in there, likely what's killin' anyone dumb enough to walk in."

Realizing how little help the townspeople seemed to be, Zed ignored them all and began to greet himself to his new comrades.

"They're overreacting." Zed told them, "They just hate the idea of someone conquering their unconquerable cave. But anyway...I'm Zed Zela. Nice to meet you all; here's hoping we all make it out alive!" He added as he downed the last of his ale.

Nice! 4 is a nice number too. I started it; it's called Seven Trials. Plot in a nutshell: There's a cave with 7 trials. At the end is supposedly (and probably) endless wealth. Almost painfully simple. =P

In Arad'uun, nestled in the mountains along it's border with Alacia, a small town is nestled, large enough for a few houses, a small market, and a single inn. The town is unnamed as far as governments go, but the townspeople calls it Hell's Gate, because of a long-standing myth surrounding a cave at the edge of town. According to legend, a monk lives deep within the cave, guarding a pile of treasure unmatched by any Kings in Skylessia. However, between the cave opening and this treasure lies seven trials, to destroy simple thieves and deem worthy any warriors adept enough to succeed.

Of course, no one has ever succeeded. At least, not yet.

For the first time in months, Zed found himself wandering around Skylessia with no specific destination. Last time, it had been due to a lack of home; he didn't want to return to his old cabin in the mountains, so he had lived like a nomad. For years, he slept only on dirt and inn beds (there was no big difference between the two either, in Zed's opinion). This time, however, he had a place he could call home. What he didn't have was excitement.

It isn't that he didn't enjoy the perks of a much more domesticated life; it had it's perks, as well as it's downsides. Ultimately, though, Zed loved to fight. He couldn't sit in a comfy castle, sparring with the same two people for the rest of his life. He needed to fight. He needed the thrill of dancing at the edge of death, hearing the bones of his enemies crush beneath his boot.

He wasn't a psychopath for wanting this; it's simply how he lived. His food as a child came from killing whatever animals he could find, and as an adult came from money earned from killing. Furthermore, he didn't want to kill just anyone; he wanted to kill something that put up a fight. Something that wanted him dead.

Little did he know, he was about to stumble into a fight that would test the limits of his fighting ability.

Zed had slept the previous night at an inn at some tiny town on the Arad'uun/Alacia border. In the morning, before setting off, he bought a breakfast of steak. Waiting for his meal, Zed observed the room: it seemed to be mostly locals, with a few scattered people who he could assume were mercenaries. The men at the table next to him were having a hushed conversation. Out of boredom, Zed was trying to listen in, but it turned out he didn't need to: one of the men stood up, seemingly addressing the locals.

"The cave has claimed three more lives!" The man said loudly, causing the room to become suddenly hushed, "This mornin', I found their bodies dragged outside! Those seedy thieves who were oh-so-confidently braggin' bout their skills tried to test fate, and the cave showed 'em what for!"

The locals seemed pleased by this, with a number of cheers and some applause. This only made Zed more curious.

"What cave?" Zed asked the man as the room got quiet again, "What's in it, and why were people in there?"

The man's eyes lit up. Zed could tell he loved telling people about this.

"Why, it's the gateway to the greatest treasure in all of Skylessia! Deep within the cave lies enough gold to buy and sell a king twice over; magical artifacts surrounded by wonder and fear; weapons fit for only the greatest warriors. This treasure ain't for every joe-merc that wants some cash, though; for the treasure is guarded by seven trials, each more difficult than the last, and none for the faint of heart. No one has ever conquered the cave, and I reckon no one ever will. That don't stop people from tryin' though."

Despite the promise of a prize at the end, the prospect of this cave that caught Zed's attention was the trials. It was exactly what he was looking for: something to fight his way through, to test his very livelihood.

"Where's this cave?" Zed asked, "I'll take it on."

The man laughed, followed by most of the room. "One man, alone?!" He managed between laughs, "That's suicide! I mean, you'd need an army to get through that!"

While Zed figured this was an overstatement, he was still willing to accept the fact that he alone would have little chance, if the cave's trials were really that dangerous. So he stood, the laughing stopping as the people in the room noticed how large he really was.

"Well, I can't be the only one who wants to conquer this cave!" He said loudly, "Who else will join me?"

So I found out in my creative writing class that my non-essay writing is really rusty. That's not a good thing. So I decided to attempt to start a quick RP. Not so short that it's over in one battle, but not anything like the last RP I started and completed (so not six months =P). I don't know what the plot is gonna be, but it'll probably involve Zed and a lot of killing. Or maybe not, who knows.

What I'm getting at is that you should post if you want to be in a relatively quick, fun, possibly fight-intensive RP. If you want to be in a grand 12-part epic spanning the better part of your adult life, then I can't help you.

Finals. (IMG:style_emoticons/blue/noes.gif) I might attempt a post later on tonight, but I'll probably end up sleeping from 3PM straight to morning. Note: All-nighters are not a good thing, no matter how good an idea they seem. ._.;

The wait for aid wasn't long; no one even approached before Alyssa ran over. This was partly due to a shout and an explosion, caused by some woman on a cliff. He didn't pay too much heed; he could tell after she began talking that she was against the attacking tribe. After healing the other group members, Alyssa finally made it to Zed and, telling him to hold still (Zed found this amusing, since he was on the ground anyway), she healed up his legs, reminding him that magic was wonderful in certain situations.

Once he was healed, the newcomer asked his group, "Why are you here, anyway?" Alyssa gave a vague response, then a familiar voice said, "I've come because I heard there was something going on here, and I was curious."

The familiar voice came from James, a friend of his who he ran into fairly often, especially considering the fact that they both seemed to just be wandering the continent most of the time. "And I guess I stuck around to see an old friend," James added with a grin. Zed lifted himself from the ground, stretching his newly healed legs, then gave his own explanation.

"We were hired by Devlan. They sent some people in a while back to scope out possible living space, but they haven't come back. After that attack, I can see why. Know anything?"
