AMA Section / That one guy who keeps injuring adversaries
« on: April 17, 2017, 04:03:49 PM »
NOTE: This is only addressed to characters that were around during the Tourney/actually watched it.

What do you think of the competitor Nathan, as of now?

Anna was reading a book in a quiet corner of the Academy's library. She looked mostly normal, apart from the fact that she had her eyes closed and that her right hand was covering the pages.

Her leisure was interrupted by the vibration of her right Pocket. Taking the scroll out and flicking it open, she moved her left hand over it. A teacher was telling her to "get her ass over to the airpads" for her first mission. She'd be airlifted to the middle of Forever Fall forest, where she had to rendez-vous with her freshly selected teammates before getting onto the main objective. Sounded simple enough.

She quickly trudged her way over to her bags & things back in the main hall, putting her book back and taking out her weapons. After fully equipping herself and putting on her coat, she went straight to the airpads where her transport awaited her. Soon, she was off.

Plot Zone / Initiation DM position [closed]
« on: February 11, 2017, 09:54:48 AM »
Hulloh all. Team ASTC is looking for somebody to DM their initiation.

So far, the plan is for the team to be messaged on their scrolls, get airlifted to the Forever Falls forest where they''ll meet up and head towards some ruins, which may or may not contain fun relics. After the ruins have been thoroughly pillaged, they start heading back, only to receive a distress call from some nearby civvies. Stuff ensues.

Further details will probably be provided. Open to all (glances at the mods).

General Discussion / Random thing I made for other random occurrences

So I created a phonetic alphabet on my own. The lexicon, that is. It should be able to handle most sounds from most languages. I think.

Hit me up if you want to put an alien alphabet in one of your IRL works.

I'm not sure if I read Gus right in a WiP post.

We'll be actually changing year? Our characters are going to get older?

You know, that post from Vox saying not to post in General Discussion from the RPG side of things because things are weird. We apparently need one of those in Introductions & etc., too.

« on: November 22, 2016, 01:02:39 PM »
Again, mostly got her figured out. However, plan's for her to come from Islium, so she'll probably be an empty shell for a while until I finish actually writing up the damn thing, submit it and somehow don't make another series of ludicrous blunders like only I can.

General Discussion / PSA + suggestions
« on: November 08, 2016, 05:04:53 PM »
So this is a semi-continuation of the previous one. Therefore,

Asterisk: :D

Also, the main purpose of this thread is for us to figure out some sort of replacement for this, as the database is apparently agonizing.
As Gus suggested, there's Discord: however, from what I know about the thing, it's less a forum and more of a chat. This means that the posts/messages would be FAR more numerous and while I don't know about you guys, I don't think I could keep up with that many things over the day.

In any case, suggest courses of action here. While we're figuring this out, you can still talk about stuff as usual.

Approved Characters / Helena Chlophyll
« on: November 07, 2016, 06:03:00 AM »
CHARACTER

Name: Helena Chlophyll

Age: 17, born 21st of Amare 63 AC

Species and Gender: Female human

Symbol: A bright, shining Sun the same colour as her Aura.

Occupation: Beacon Academy student, first year

Appearance: At 1.75 metres/5'9" and 63 kilograms/140 lbs, Helena has defined muscles. Her shoulders are slightly wider than average and her chest, while nothing to write home about, isn't too shabby either at a C cup. Her features tend to be on the soft side. She has a warm, smooth voice that could easily lull you to sleep. Her most defined muscles are her shoulder and upper back ones, mostly due to using Artemis. She has fair skin and straight, light blond hair that goes down to her shoulderbones as well as very pale blue-grey eyes. She is right-handed.

Helena's 'casual' attire consists of a black, fitted dress shirt with slightly golden buttons paired with a navy, tea-length circle skirt and golden heels. When the weather is too frigid or rainy, she'll also wear a burgundy princess coat with white buttons and a hidden hood. She wears her school uniform as prim and proper as possible. Her formal attire consists of a white, knee-length dress and white heels. The skirt is made of a twenty or so thin, light swaths of textile, seemingly sown onto a common base. The skirt also has a slight colour gradient: it starts white at the top and becomes a very pale lilac at the bottom. Her pajama consists of a maroon-coloured silk nightgown. She can sometimes be seen with a small, brown leather sash slung around herself, which is where she likes to keep her pet garden snake when on the move in a safe environment.

History: Helena was born in Vale to two equally Vallite parents. She grew up in one of the poorer parts of the city. But even then, her parents were something special: they helped out everyone they could with all the time they could spare, even if they worked most of the day to make ends meet. They tried to communicate this love of people to their daughter, and boy did they ever succeed. Even at the ripe age of 4, Helena would go to others and speak to them in a friendly manners, even those that could be regarded as bullies - which rarely remained that way. If she saw another child - or even adult - cry, she was pretty much guaranteed to be found hugging them within 10 seconds, asking what's wrong and doing her best to help. She got it bad, sometimes, when someone went aggressive, but even then, she refused to stop helping.

When she was 8, however, something changed - drastically. As improbable as it may seem, her parents won the lotto. Thankfully for pretty much everyone involved, it didn't change them or go to their heads: they dressed a bit fancier, but still very simply and, above all, kept on helping others, spending even more time on that as they had stopped working. Now, they distributed food and clothing to the homeless, provided shelters, helped families in need, arranged for doctors to consult those who couldn't afford it. When she wasn't at school, they brought their child along, watching her bloom into a ball of sunshine with seemingly infinite stocks of love for all.

When she was 11, Helena was seriously wondering what she would do later in life. Would she be a doctor? A humanitarian worker? A police officer? There were so many options that were good ways of helping people! After giving it a lot of thought and asking her parents, their friends and her own friends for advice, she settled on becoming a Huntress. Not everything about the job was chasing monsters, but also helping those who were too far away from the main settlements for the usual help to be of any use. This made her take up archery as a pastime and, furthermore, as practice for her future job. When the time came, she therefore enrolled in Signal.

Mere days after arriving at Signal, during the first live exercise she took part in, one of her fellow students injured themselves rather severely, blood escaping the wound at a dangerous rate. Doing, as usual, all she could to help, Helena ran to the boy and pressed both hands on the gash, wishing for the bleeding to stop. Which it did. About thirty seconds later, when the nurses arrived on the scene and asked that she remove her hands so that they could evaluate the damage, the bleeding had completely stopped. Helena had just used her semblance for the first time. Realizing this, she began to consume as much information as possible about biology and anatomy. Therefore, most of her time at Signal was spent on using her semblance by swinging by the hospital every day. She got into Beacon with average scores all over the board, ecstatic at the idea of being one step closer to becoming a healer Huntress.

Personality: Helena is just about as bright as the Sun can be, bordering on the excessive. Relentlessly joyful and happy, she refuses to see people as only evil, claiming that there is no such thing as pure evil: there's always a reason behind it, one that she seldom understands. As such, even though the White Fang's recent activities are... of a rather questionable nature, she is entirely convinced that they believe they are doing this for the greater good. Her willingness to help with almost anything anyone can ask, as well as try to help those who seem to need it, can lend her to be marginally - okay, not so marginally - naive and prone to fall into traps. She usually prefers to hang around outside, amidst large amounts of greenery which may or may not have been grown via her semblance, either just enjoying the sights or reading a book under the shadow of a tree, and is quite happy if anyone decides to join her.

Aura and Semblance: Helena's Aura is a bright, warm solar yellow (#FFFFE5).

Her semblance is, in one word, Life. It allows her to use her Aura to heal animals and people. Healing done with her semblance will leave no scar tissue behind. She is only capable of healing relatively recent injuries and, to a much lesser extent, sickness. The amount of Aura needed depends on the size, nature and complexity of the injury. For sickness, it basically gives the immune system a boost.
Spoiler: Examples • show
She can fully mend a large, broken bone (femur, etc.) for 80%. Hemorrhages, due to the rather localized nature of blood vessels, can be healed quite easily - 10% in extreme cases. Muscle tears are rather exhausting, a large muscle group necessitating about 40%. Nerves, due to their very local nature, can be healed for less than 15%, in most cases. The most extreme thing she can pull off, however, is that if someone's had a limb sliced clean off, she can reattach it over the course of 3 days, starting with barely reattaching the bone along with repairing nerves and blood vessels and sealing the skin.

Note: Aura can be exchanged for stamina, where 0% stamina = fainting from exhaustion.

Combat Behavior: Helena considers herself as more of a support than anything else, usually preferring to stand far behind her allies and snipe with Artemis. However, should the terrain or situation prove to be unsuitable to such an arrangement, she will dual wield her knives and rapidly flit about her foes, stabbing and slicing with strangely graceful, rapid and fluid movements, but is still far from impressive and struggles to inflict damage, being somewhat unused to close quarters.

WEAPONS

Name: Artemis

Primary Form: Artemis takes the form of a large, reflex flatbow and its 24 accompanying arrows, along with a quiver. A large strip of light, silvery, unpolished metal spans its entire length and thickness and the rest of the flatbow itself is completed by carbon fibre. The draw string is a thick nanotube wire. The entire thing was treated to be fireproof since, y'know, carbon burns. The arrows - most of them - have a shaft made of carbon nanotube reinforced polymer, black polymer fletching and have tungsten carbide heads which are the nightmarish child of bodkin points and broadheads. The broadhead part is situated just below the bodkin point, within the shaft, and deploys on impact - optimally, after it penetrates the target. The arrows are also treated to be fire resistant. The bow is capable of shooting its ammo at just over 150 m/s when fully drawn. Its maximum range is what you'd expect for such a bow - about 400 m. This is a far cry from the effective range, though, which is about 80 meters.

Dust Functions: Small Dust containers can be clamped onto the shaft, right after the bodkin point. These containers are stored in pockets on the quiver. Helena likes to have two of each on hand at all times. The effects have an 0.6 metre radius unless specified otherwise.
- Fire: Creates an explosion.
- Ice: Freezes stuff or creates ice around stuff.
- Lightning: Zaps things.
- Kinetic: Drives the arrow forward with immense force (basically quadruples the arrow's ordinary momentum).

History: Helena had Artemis custom-made for her while she was at Signal. She named it Artemis because of, well, Artemis.

Name: Seikatsu & Shi

Primary Form: Seikatsu and Shi are two daggers/knives which are only special in their looks. Seikatsu is of a vivid green with yellow reflections, while Shi is black with red reflections. Seikatsu's sheath is attached on the left side of her belt while Shi's is symmetrically placed.

Spoiler: The goddamn colours, man • show
Seikatsu colours: #14A900 & #D9DC00
Shi: Black is black, red is #C20000


History: Helena made these weapons herself while attending Signal as a close-range solution.

Beacon Academy / The Proverbial Hurricane [semi-open, ask before posting]
« on: October 19, 2016, 10:03:32 PM »
Nathan was sat at his computer. Someone had linked him a vid of the recent news bulletin. Patiently, he listened as the people spoke, not really caring what they thought of him. What he did care about, however, was the face of the obviously manipulative douchenozzle that was somehow catalyzing the mass into believing his lies. He just couldn't believe they didn't see the obvious.

Sighing, he got up, walked over to his bed and threw himself backwards onto it, landing perfectly sprawled on it. I can't wait for that hollow-hearted prick to get what's coming to him.

The Vale Region / Encounters of the Third Kind [Closed]
« on: September 24, 2016, 12:00:00 PM »
A woman, 6'7" and built like an Amazon, was laying in a lounge chair in front of the Yulind residence, her feet bare and some beige cargo pants accompanying her dark gray sleeveless shirt - which had an orange 4-point star on it. Her long, rather curly black hair was, for once, loose. Her green eyes were intently focused on the words of the book she was in the process of reading.

Max raised her eyes off the ink-riddled pages and gazed at her surroundings, enjoying the warmth, the wind and the songs of nearby birds. This place reminded her so much of home. Sure, the lake was bigger and she could see ground that stretched way further, but everything else felt the same.

She had been supposed to meet with Ophelia at this very house. However, when she arrived, all she found was a note that pretty much said that the family was gone for a few days and to make herself at home in the meantime. Max had been rather outraged at that, but had managed to calm down after about half an hour of formulating inventive ways to destroy the building. Since her Aura had been registered within the security system, she wouldn't need to break in like last time.

Sighing, she plunged back into the book. This wasn't so bad after all.
