Aaaaand that person was Iron Claw. The 'Iron Claw' monicker is actually referencing to his prosthetic forearm. In his initial design, he just wore gauntlets, but I figured it'd be cooler to take one of his forearms off. He will still be one of the more powerful fighters in the story, which says a lot about his skills despite the missing limb.
I like the character, I really do, but I've been absent for so long that I don't really feel right keeping her around in the story while the original creator can do so much more with her in her own. So at the moment I'm trying to create a character that can take her place. Not much difference will be made aside from name, design and some bits of her personality though. That, and the flying cat will be missing. We shall miss you, Mushi (... which I believe was its name).
As for other characters, I haven't decided on which ones will stay and which ones will go; I've seen so many of my friends here moving on to bigger arts that these kind of changes will be inevitable. It will not affect anyone in a big way, but it does help the others who are still interested. That, and I've 'buried the hatchet' with some others who I've had altercations with and may be thinking of bringing some of their characters back into the story.
Now... for something different:
The S & M Guild
I am not sure if any of you know this but aside from Iron Tail, I've been playing around with this idea: it's about Abby, a swordswoman, and Xia, an elven ranger, and their adventures and misadventures while being hired swords for an infamous guild called 'S & M', which stands for 'Swords and Magic' - though many characters would think it means something entirely different. I think I may need opinions on these two:
Abby is the swordswoman, whose nickname 'Bloody Abby' comes from the fact that blood tends to splatter all over her in battle. She's also known for her crimson-red hair, and wielding a sword twice her weight and height. Her fighting style is very much unorthodox so if you expect graceful sword skills, look elsewhere; she will throw punches, kicks, headbutts, and will even throw in some wrestling moves - mostly anything to get the job done. Now here is where I am mostly torn between: she possesses monstrous strength, but I am not sure if it's something she's cursed with or because she's wearing something enchanted. Why I give her this trait is because I want her to be that character who literally charges into the heat of battle... and raise heck.
Most swordswoman I see are always about grace and speed, why not the opposite and go with strength and brutality?
Xia is Abby's elven comrade and friend, but unlike most elves who are always well-mannered and gentle, Xia is playful and enjoys listening and making sexual innuendos. In fact, she's more dwarf than elf in that sense. So this will be a sensitive question and I know I may get a LOT of heat for this: is it alright if Xia is a character who likes to 'flirt around' (sugar coated!)? I know what a lot of you are thinking, but then I see male characters who do that and they're called 'playboys' (Tony Stark from Ironman, Joey from Friends, heck, even Batman... sometimes). BUT I'm not doing it to sexualize the character or anything, but as weird as this may sound, it... just makes sense considering her personality. It's not like she'll be constantly hunting for men or does it with just anyone, but just that she's open about it - plus, it's just to make her funny and give other elves more reason to resent her.
But what do you think? This will just help me in online roleplays.
What kind of person I am, I would have to go with what one friend of mine described me: |
"A good guy when he needs to be; a harsh guy when necessary."
My little rule is simple: respect what I do, and I'll respect you back. I can be harsh sometimes, but rarely do I have any ill intentions behind it.
I'm an active online RolePlayer (RPer) who RPs for the sake of story and development, so I tend to be picky who my roleplaying partners are (usually aiming for the ones who can provide a memorable session or a style that fits with mine). I RP in various mediums, but most especially IRC since I can write as much as I want there. Also, I'm also a vivid gamer, and more often than not will go on maaaaaaany days of hiatus to focus on a game!
... because I'm the type of guy who can only focus on one thing at a time if I want to give 100% <_<;;
Oh, I'm also subjective to ideas/inspirations that pop right out of nowhere.
