Akel was moderately surprised that her opponent didn't manage to block the third shot. However, she was irritated when her opponent started rushing because that would mean she would surely use her semblance, knowing that the rush was going to come to Akel immediately started to think about how she would strike.

Akel didn't expect Ayaka to aim for her head and took the strike, her headset getting knocked off her ears in the process and hit the ground, the sudden increase in noise caused Akel to lose focus but in the few moments that it took for her earpiece to adjust, she had put her weapon to her right to block the attack and moved to the right as Akel turned to the right to keep her focus on Ayaka, the earpieces adjusting to the pre-established settings caused everything to seem quiet as she felt the wind tickle her ears, at the same time she placed her hand against the flat of the blade as she felt the force of Ayaka's blade impact her own.

Angered that her headset had been damaged and possibly having to be replaced, she went on the attack and stepped forward as she angled her blade and trigger the transformation. Swinging the rapidly transforming weapon to strike and catch Ayaka at her iced ribs with the area between the handle and the blade, only for her to step forward again and grip the handle properly as she twisted her own body to view the other side of the arena. This attack was to send Ayaka flying into a large chunk of fire Dust. Not one to waste the opportunity she let her weapon transform back into its sword form and unloaded most of the remaining bullets into the chuck of Dust to force an explosion as Ayaka would get close to the crystals.

Hey hey, first off welcome to the site Azure ^^ and I do love me some numbered questions so I'll just add a bit to what DEXES has said.

1. Messages aren't stored in sent by default, but you can do that. Go to: My Messages -> Preferences -> Change Settings (drop-down), in there just check "Save a copy of each personal message in my sent items by default."

2. You will find everything for making profiles under Character creation ( https://rwbyfanon.com/index.php?board=15.0 ). WiP is where characters go to let anyone comment, and the main forum is where us in the staff do our reviews. The template and rules are also there so make sure to take a look there. It's also not a bad idea to take a trip to the approved characters forum and take a look at some finished profiles to see how they end up looking.

3. We are in the process of moving the forum onto an updated site, however starting that process has unfortunately broken the "spoiler" code, which would normally give more info when you press show, we are working on getting that fixed. (if there's anything specific you want to take a look at message me here or on discord and I'll see if I can't send it).

4. Harder to describe but I can say that this is the first site I've ever RPd on, so I have been in the same position. Since DEXES has pointed you to where I'll give a quick general overview. In short, you create a character, in the review we help a bit and make sure that things make sense with the world and follows the rules, then you can basically join a new [Open] thread or head over to the Teams forum and see about finding a team to join. Either case you'll eventually end up in a thread where you all take turns posting (Basically if 4 people are in the thread then you go in the order that you all first posted in). The key difference, when compared to a chatroom RP, is that you can generally write a lot more than just what your character says, it's essentially closer to writing a short story together. Similarly, with characters profiles it's not a bad idea to head over to "RPG World of Remnant" and take a look at a thread.

Hope that all helps and if there's anything else don't hesitate to ask. If you use Discord we have a server where you can usually get answers a lot faster than posting on the forum, the link and other useful info is here https://rwbyfanon.com/index.php?topic=94.0
Welcome again

Welp, I'm not good at explaining things, but I can try.

Well, number one is easy.

When you write a message, there is a box below the message window asking if you want to Save a copy in your outbox. You have to check it and then it will be stored in your inbox.
To retrieve it you simply go on: My Messages> Messages (Next to Actions and Preferences) and then on Inbox. And don't worry, I'm sure the Admin got the message.

If you forget to check off the box, it's unfortunately too late.







Number 2.

Just here: https://rwbyfanon.com/index.php?board=15.0

In my opinion, a little unclearly shown, but you just have to go on character creation and throw the character in there. But this is really only for when the character is ready and waiting for approval. Otherwise just put him in "WIP characters" so that you can still work on him and also get some tips from others.

Number 3.

Pretty much a learn by doing thing. There are a few who have never or very little RPGed before, so you should not worry too much.

And with all the Topics and Threads it's just one thing you get used to over time. Let me try to summarize it short and roughly.

You see all the different compartments on the "main page". These are bringing you to individual separate pages, each of which has further paths to other pages. Sounds confusing, but since everything is relatively well-ordered here, it works well. Most of it takes place in the RPG part of the forum (what a surprise)

Entering Threads is easy.
Let's take Beacon Academy as an example. Simply on The Vale region and then on the topic Beacon Academy (or you take the direct link) From there you look for a chat you want to join. It is important to ensure that this is also open to all and possibly active.

Hope this information helped a bit, Good Luck!

1v1 Matches / Re: First Year 1v1 bracket- Round 1: Samantha Quartz vs. Camelia Sol
« Last post by Glow on September 16, 2018, 01:19:01 PM »
Samantha grinned behind her mask as the sword impacted, blades grinding against the shield heavily as her opponent attempted to counteract the hit. The sudden burst of electricity led her to bring the chains down to bear against the shield, acting as miniature lightning rods - she'd long since done what she could to insulate the connectors, and despite the sting she'd feel it wouldn't be nearly as dangerous as if it hit directly - before following up by taking those electrified chains and attempting to stab them into Camelia, a small burst of her semblance behind the sword attempting to shove the weapon downwards again. Whichever way they moved, they should be able to get them into a trap.

The purple glow around them gave them pause, but they pressed on, making sure to divert one chain into the ground instead - sure, losing a bit of damage, but having a bit of a backup plan if they were shot like a bullet.

(Electricity: -8% aura, Downward slash: -10% aura, -3% stamina, Chain Blade: -3% aura per second in contact, Electrified Chains: -5% each, possible stun effect)

So I'm new here and I'm kinda confused about stuff so I messaged an admin and that only added to my confusion. Because after I sent the message it didn't show up it my "sent" box so I don't know of it actually sent. That's confusion point 1.
Confusion point two is on characters. So, from what I've gathered your character bios are just like a normal post. But I don't know which topic/forum to post them in. Can someone help with that? Cause out of the forums for characters, there are none for "characters waiting approval" so I don't know what to post them in. Like, I don't know where to send them to get them approved. Helllppppp!!
Number three for confusion points is that whenever something says "show" with like, a link or whatever and you can click on it, it doesn't let me click on it. And that's a huge fucking issue because a lot of my questions could have been answered if I was allowed to click on the things. Why can't I click on the things it's making stuff like 100 times more difficult! Is it just my computer/phone/tablet (yes I've tried to click on them with all three)? Or is it like the site won't let me?
4th confusion point: everything else. I've only ever role played on one other site, I usually do chat rooms roleplays not forum roleplays, so forums are still kinda new to me. Thus, I am highly confused and looking for any information I could get about anything. Because I am.highly confused this set up. Like, could someone give me a brief rundown of where to find things? Cause that'd be super helpful! Thanks!

The Vale Region / Re: Hitting the bullseye [Closed]
« Last post by DEXES on September 16, 2018, 10:54:19 AM »
Still embarrassed, Kisha gave her an approving nod. Hey, at least she was not completely creeped out by her.

As the Bullhead took off and slowly left the airspace of the academy, Kisha sat down on one of the seats and hints Anza that she could sit next to her, if she wanted to. It would be a while before they were in Gabsheim, so it was the best time to get to know each other better. So why not start with the thing they had in common?

"Did you always fought with the bow or did you had other weapons as well? When did you start shooting?" She asked, looking expectantly at Anza. She had about five more questions to ask in that same breath, but it was probably better for the both of them that she didn't.

Beacon Academy / Re: ABoat time [Open]

Kisha slowly opened her eyes as she felt the vibrations of footsteps through the jetty and looked up.

"Ah, no, no you don't disturb at all!" she said and took out the headphones, wrapped them around her scroll and then packed it away. She watched him quietly for a while. It seemed like she'd seen him before, several times actually, but she couldn't think of a place or name. And judging by his greeting, he probably doesn't seem to know her either. She stared at him for a little longer, thinking about all sorts of people she meet, but no one matched. Finally, she gave up and decided to do the best thing in this situation. Start a conversation.

"Sooooo," she watched as he threw the bait into the water "What are you hoping to catch?"

Kisha was relatively calm for her hyperactive and excitable nature and watched silently as circles shaped around the bait as it breaks through the surface of the water. Normally, a rain of questions would have already rained down on the young, pale man, but the countless questions confined to this one.
"I'm Kisha, Kisha Miles. And you are?"

The Vale Region / Re: Through rivalry and friendship... and a bunch of Grimm [closed]
« Last post by Siuwa on September 16, 2018, 05:00:16 AM »
The storm did not hinder Siu one bit, be it the wind or the rain, as she watched the two make it happen. An immobilization involving a claw dodge and plenty of maneuvering followed by two surprisingly mighty show of force, culminating in a one-hit kill of the giant Deathstalker. It's certainly impressive, but it's not time to celebrate yet. The pulverized chunks started smoking as Siu returned to play her role and do some more scouting. By the way, isn't the previous intel underestimating the horde a bit? If they have sent a team of first years they might have been in a bit of trouble. Well, they don't have recon this close so excusable I guess.

As Siu ran her mind the Cranes scattered again to recon the area and having each other's backs, giving Siu as some forewarn that just proved to be very useful.

Between Mikado and Kiro, they could each grab one claw, and that would leave only the tail.  I can probably dodge the tail.  Still, can scrawny-ass over here actually hold a claw off long enough for me to get in close enough? Smokey thinks to himself as he falls in behind Mikado.  To be frank, he has doubts about Mikadoís brute strength, and he canít help but wonder how lizard boyís going do it.  So it comes as a complete surprise whenó

Waam!

Smokey goes slack-jawed when the Deathstalker is knocked clean on its side with both its claws and tail restrained, albeit temporarily.   He canít deny it, that was smooth.  Its only when Mikado shouts that Smokey comes back to his senses.  Despite the impressive showing, its clear Mikado alone isnít enough to put the monster down for good.

Switching to volley form, Smokey reactivates his semblance and charges to the exposed underbelly.  The Deathstalkerís struggles mightily, but as long as those chains hold, Smokey can approach it without incident.  When he finally reaches the underbelly of the beast, he holds up Matchstick and jams it against (if not through) its abdomen and squeezes the trigger.  All seven rounds fire off and wreak havoc on the Grimmís body.  A fire-enhanced, point-blank blast ought to be more than enough to kill it outright then and there. 

Smokey's combat stats
Aura: 96%
Semblance:  ACTIVATED! 1ST OF 6 ROUNDS
Matchstick: 0/7 ~Fire dust loaded
7/14 Fire Dust, 7/14 Ice Dust

Action:  Point-Blank Matchstick Volley!  (If there were aura counts, this would be 140% + 35% Fire)

1v1 Matches / Re: Third Year 1v1 bracket- Round 1: Aurelia Lumen vs. Airi Okairos
« Last post by FunkyMonkey on September 16, 2018, 12:34:11 AM »
By now, Airi was at the ice dust fields.  As Aurelia blended into the forests, but failed to reappear, Airi had suspicions as to what her opponent was up to.  She had to flush her out before she could use her semblance.  As a result, Airi used some fire and kinetic dust from her gauntlet.  In particular, she combined the two, creating and launched the resulting mixture at the forest.  Fireballs rained onto the trees, igniting them and torching the treeline.  Airi then continued her bombardment by adding ice dust into the mix causing the fireballs to become firebombs.  Suddenly, the wooded cover that made the forest such favorably defensive terrain was turned into a deadly storm of shrapnel and splinters.  In the meantime, she took several of the ice dust crystals, using them to refill her own reserves of ice dust and stashing several more on her belt.  They could come in handy, especially if her tactic to force Aurelia out failed.  Airi then stepped forth from the ice dust fields, continued to pace slowly, and watched as the forest on the other side of the arena went up in flames.
