Title: Team GOLDN OOC
Post by: Greybender on October 14, 2013, 11:56:03 PM
Your OOC thread, hope you like the rooftop access rooms.


Linna Cero (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1CFTvn0quB3R25ST1FGYTVVdms/edit) (Created by Rokku): Lich Sage, Just Blade/Lich/Necromancer
Just a sweet girl filled with sinister eldritch power, delivering her attacks from up close and personal, the most intelligent freshman so far.
Spoiler
Linna Cero
Lich Sage (Necromancer/Just Blade/Lich)
Trained Skills Vigor, Arcana, Medicine, Nature, Perception
Notable Feats Dartmuth Secret, The Sun Grows Dim, Telekinetic Adept, By Will Sustained
Combat Style Staying within Close range and wailing on targets with SLAs channeled through Grim Heritor attacks. Even if enemies close to melee, Linna can quickly swap over and has solid immunities, damage reduction, and temporary hitpoints to keep herself going.

A sweet girl from the Grimm Forest, Linna's life would likely had been quiet and uneventful had she not been forced to take shelter in an abandoned cottage during a terrible storm.  Trying to start a fire, she found long black wooden needle she thought might work as kindling... that immediately sprouted thorns when she touched it, biting into her tender fingers. Trying to throw the needle away was fruitless. as the thorns dug into her fingers and seemed to drink up her freely flowing blood.  Then all of a sudden the needle twisted in her grip, and burrowed into her hand, vanishing.  There was searing pain, then darkness.

When she woke, the roof of the cottage was gone.  Everything was soaked -- except for Linna, who was bone dry.  And changed.  The breath of life had left her, turning her once-rosy skin icy blue.  Strange stitching ran all over her body. And the needle -- she could feel it in her.  She could feel the threads extending out to the stitching on her skin.  She knew she couldn't go back to her village.  She was one of the dark things in the forest now.

She's still a sweet girl though.  Just a sweet girl filled with sinister eldritch power.

Dani Geiss (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9a0YlLwqAOxNk5vUlZTdmdGWDQ/edit) (Created by sakuuya): Ghost Sage, Arcane Lore/Ghost (http://www.ruleofcool.com/smf/index.php/topic,875.msg17058.html#msg17058)/Force of Will
Dani the quiet ghost girl with a bit of amnesia and a couple of numbers off by a bit, or at least not consistent.
Spoiler
Mordann "Dani" Geiss
Ghost Sage (Arcane Lore/Ghost/Force of Will)
Trained Skills: Stealth, History, Diplomacy, Intimidate, Perception
Notable Feats: Dread Secret, Shadow Blink
Combat Style: Support, support support. A little ranged damage? I guess, but only in service of further support.

Dani doesn't remember how she died. And she's okay with that--she figures that, if whatever it was was traumatic enough to bring her back as a ghost, she's probably better off not knowing. As a living girl, she was a mousey nobody, but becoming undead has given her a new lease on life, so to speak. She's still quiet and contemplative and tends to defer to others, but she's much more willing to stand up for herself if she feels someone is mistreating her. She had been trying to get into Legend Academy for a while before she died, to try and make something of herself for once, but the school was only interested in her once she was eligible for their undead program, which has soured her opinion of the place a bit.

Nate Reaver (https://www.dropbox.com/sh/vzo4koch821zp4d/mhWkaXiQS-/Nate%20Vampire.pdf) (Created by munchlord): Vampire Paladin, Vampire/Smiting/Judgement/Fire Elemental

Spoiler
Appearance: Medium black hair, Blue eyes
Home Realm: Equin
Home City: Layonara
Age: 21
Adventuring Cliche: Orphan

Abridged Version: Ohmy Merical helped his father Gallows find a cure to a mysterious plague called The Ash spreading rapidly back at home. The Ash had taken Ohmy's mother, his hand, and much of his body, but the father and son finally found a solution which they quietly poured into the water supply. Gallows passed away peacefully shortly after and Ohmy received his father's invitation to Sigil. Since Gallows wasn't going to accept and Ohmy had no other plans, The Necromancer's Apprentice went in his father's stead, eager to learn more and help others as he embarked on his own adventure.

The staff of Beacon just know that Jeaune's self-confidence is so low he'd never even CONSIDER making a move on one of the girls.

And the other guy is just too stoic.

True, but I wouldn't put it above a certain one of the girls in that room to make a move on one of the boys.....

Aaaaand now you've met Linna.

Ohmy completely approves of either possibility. While he waits for the door to re-open he checks out the "peculiar  peculiar looking square shaped ooze" that I sorely hope is a table and not a monster.

(OOC Parenthesis: would this require a roll of some kind?)

The underlined part made it sound like Ohmy is into shy girls.... at least it sounded like that to me.
Title: Re: Team GOLDN OOC
Post by: Brightside on October 23, 2013, 09:04:35 AM
That's what I assumed also. He seems like a nice guy, but we haven't come across a tavern yet. And how can you know what your character is like till they've hit up at least one tavern?
Title: Re: Team GOLDN OOC
Post by: munchlord on October 23, 2013, 09:51:53 AM
Well Nate is a refitted version of one of my staples, so across his various incarnations, he's seen his fair share of inns, tavers, bars, pubs, hotels and watering holes. Even so, I didn't need him to visit either to get a good grasp of his tastes in that department, I just needed him to fall in love a few times.

How would a tavern trip work when most of the team can't get drunk and a good chunk of it is incapable of talking to the opposite gender? It sounds like kind of a disaster.

We should do it as soon as possible.

Well Nate's Exile Day is coming up :P (to explain, Nate celebrates him being exiled from hell, seeing as it was the best thing that ever happened to him. He does, however, not celebrate his birthday (nor even remember it) as he doesn't really consider the circumstances of his birth (particularly the location and parents involved) to be something to celebrate.)

It's okay!  Linna is not looking for a wingman.  She just forgot boys would happen.

A few scattered sentences can be made out on the surface of the odd construct - "DIRECTIONS," "RIDDLE," "DANGER," and "KNOWLEDGE."

Odd construct being the Book/Scroll about Wailing Dustmen, or odd blue ball? I just want to make sure I'm not running after the wrong plot hook and forgetting to read the whole message.

That was a "One thing, or another thing that is likely not part of the first thing" question.

As the team files out the door, Dani raises a spectral finger in comment.

"Shouldn't we, um, unfold..." she says, barely audibly. But she floats along after her teammates anyway. Ohmy probably knows what he's doing.

He totally doesn't, but if anyone has any better ideas...

Well, my OOC suggestion is unfold the note.  :P Dani's just bad at making suggestions.
Title: Re: Team GOLDN OOC
Post by: Brightside on October 30, 2013, 09:18:36 PM
I assumed it was already unfolded, since it probably had "Danger Knowledge" on the outside of the letter, and "The Dustman Lurk" on the inside. I may be wrong though, current GM's are kinda dicey with the word play (probably intentional). It'd still be good to know who sent it, either someone in charge for askin all them questions to or something else, perhaps more sinister.

I hear ya. (Part of) the reason it took me so long to post because I was trying to figure out whether I was interpreting Valixes' post correctly. I'm pretty sure that the floating words were on the sphere, not the paper, but the antecedent of "these" in "these initially visible letters" is unclear. But since "and lurking where the dustmen wailed" is indeed a brief phrase, I assumed it was the brief phrase being referred to, rather than the whole.

Ohmy's hand reaches easily through the semi-intangible ball, which floats peacefully away after the script is removed. The parchment has a texture comparable to dried wood - a very dense brownish paper that speaks years for its age, and it carries with it the distinct smell of an old book. A scrawling of ink - though the mixture used for this particular penning appears to contain traces of crushed glass to lighten the hue - wraps halfway around it's topmost side. These initially visible letters form a brief phrase, and appear to be of a larger whole to be revealed upon unfolding the note: and lurking where the dustmen wailed.

Please note that I'm not trying to say, "I'm right and you're wrong," because pfft, who knows? I'm just trying to say "here are my reasons for interpreting it how I did."

Ohmy seems to be genuinely a good guy, but he comes on a little too strong. He's probably just eager to finally meet some new people. Feels like his goals are to meet new people and help them out, as long as their goals don't involve manipulating those underneath themselves or Ohmy.

Is that about what Knowing discerns?

I assume that Nate would also know that it isn't -him- it's directed at then? Seeing as he got in on a scholarship in his Bio (unless that was a Hoax, which is fine by me if you want that.)

Just so you know what the hell I'm trying to convey; Ohmy's natural weapon from Battleforged is his hand, and it has the Variable enchantment. It's currently set to [Brutal 2, Throwing].
He also has his other, regular typed weapon drawn, which is a wacky mix of passives [Guardian, Scything, Deft] attached to his shield (simply fluff in being attached). Both of the weapons also have [Reach] and [Magnum] from Abandoned Arsenal.

Anyway, wanna take this thing, or haul ass?
