  1. Come at me...

    For the sake of fairness, I deliberately chose a grounded ship, so there is land just beneath the ship. Idk her reach, but I didn’t want to deliberately give myself a big situational advantage.

    I’m in. 👍
  3. Fierach vs Radioactive

    Sollie had not expected him to actually move fast enough to catch her fist in mid punch. He knew what he was doing. The twisted arm hurt, but it was pretty minor pain for a seasoned warrior. Fortunately, he underestimated the agility and flexibility of the elves, not to mention the physical durability afforded to her by Solariamelosalia. Sollie performed two actions in unison, one physical and one magical. 1She twisted her entire body around in a flip, using the arm he held to hoist herself, and twist in the air, forcefully pulling her arm from his grasp. 2At the same time, she summoned forth the creeping and crawling creatures she had reached out to before the fight began. All manner of vermin such as rats, mice, roaches, and spiders crawled up from the dirt floor or ran in from the stands. With the vermin rushing in to surround James’ legs, and begin clawing and biting, 3she quickly spun and threw a practiced kick at his chest. If it landed, she hoped to knock him off balance and put him to the ground. 1Quickdraw defense: Ariel flip to pull arm free 2Prep[1] attack: Summoned vermin to attack and distract 3Quickdraw attack: Kick to chest
  4. What do you hate to see in a post?

    While I can see the appeal of avoiding character sheets, since actual people can’t check a character sheet upon meeting someone, they do have some advantages. For instance, if you’re character, who had no character sheet, suddenly reveals that he is god in the flesh, and we are all just pawns in his cosmic game, my only possible response is “Okay. I guess that’s that.” Because how do I know if that was true or not before he said it? IRL a mechanic can’t suddenly reveal that he’s actually a brilliant mathematician, because he typically won’t have the education or expertise to back up the claim. In an RP, you can just say you have the expertise, and you suddenly have it, unless your character has a recorded past. Maybe no one here would do that, but plenty of people would. I don’t usually read any part of a CS except the physical description, but it’s good to have just in case it’s needed.

    Stealing from another RPer is something else I can’t stand. There are really obvious ways of doing this, like seeing that my character is a demon disguised as a human, then suddenly revealing that your character is also a demon disguised as a human, despite making no mention of this in a CS or any previous post... (That’s a general “you” directed at no one). There are also more subtle ways of doing this. I know I mentioned this in another post, but I once did an RP where my character was an outlaw seductress being tracked by a Sherriff(or bounty hunter, I forget) who was secretly in love with the seductress. They would meet, fight, play cat and mouse, and usually end up in bed. I described all of this, and the person I was RPing with went on to describe almost the exact same situation with her own characters, despite having character sheets that made no mention of any of this. It wasn’t overt, but I could clearly see that she was hijacking my character dynamic, even if no one else could. It completely turned me off to RPing with her, and I dropped out (which I don’t often do).
  6. Come at me...

    I’ve done exactly that. If anyone wants to know who I am currently fighting, look at the first post.
  7. Come at me...

    Good idea. 👍
  8. Come at me...

    I believe @Deus Ex Aizen was next in line.
  9. Come at me...

    I’m going to allow at least two of my current commitments to wrap up before I commit to anything else, but I’ll use your beta rules on the very next fight.
  10. Come at me...

    You drive a hard bargain, but I accept. 👍

    I love the gift for Helianthus. Great idea! 🖤

    @Praetorian Would you mind judging this one as well?
  13. Fierach vs Radioactive

    Sollie ignored the man’s disapproving comment. She had fought plenty of battles with and without the benefit of Solariamelosalia’s blessing, and she had nothing to prove. She did, however, respond in kind when he disposed of his sword. Rather than tossing hers to the side, she replaced it in its sheath. 1Before they met in the middle of the ring, she quickly drew her bow and fired a trip-arrow about six feet behind James. She only fired one, and it would stay there and do nothing until she fired the second one. She replaced her bow on her back as they met in the middle of the arena. 2With her weighted gloves, she took up a fighting stance and immediately threw a jab at his throat. He was taller, had a longer reach, and probably more raw physical power, but few could match the agility and grace of a highly trained elf. If she connected, it would give her the chance to follow up with more devastating attacks. 1Prep[2] Trip-arrow strategically placed behind James. 2Quickdraw attack: Punch to the throat. 3Persistant Advantage: Sollie is blessed with double physical durability

    Right, that’s basically what I was saying. It’s like the difference between saying “Jane was the most beautiful woman in the world.” And “Men stared and catcalled as Jane walked by. Even the women stopped and stared in either envy or lust.” The point is, don’t just make your character a useless piece of scenery. If he’s preoccupied or just cold-hearted, that’s fine, but make that apparent somehow. Dont just say, “There was no emotion on his face.” That’s either lazy writing, or it’s a poor attempt to make a bland character look cool for being bland.
  15. Hanami - Flower Festival [OPEN]

    Helianthus said nothing as the dramatic series of events played out. The would-be assassin failed miserably, left impaled on the end a sword. The crowd of bystanders began to panic, but an odd wave of comfort seemed to force them to calm down. Helianthus felt like she could have given into the strange sensation, but she resisted it. Now was the time stay alert. Then things took an even more intense turn. The demoness displayed her great power. Terianthus immediately dropped to the ground and began chanting something that Helian did not understand. Helianthus let out an embarrassingly girlish squeak and ducked behind the elf-god again. She peeked out and watched as the demoness restored the assassin to life. “Ah.” She said to the elf-god. “She will force him to give up his pack. This is good. The insolent crétin should know to not attack a reine.” A queen, love. Terianthus corrected as he stood back up. “Yes, a queen.” She looked to the demoness as she introduced the man as Xartia and the Scarlett Queen. “I would have dispatched this crétin myself, had your man not acted so quickly.” She gave the man, Xartia, a respectful nod. Then she looked to the Scarlett Queen. Yet another figure of great beauty and power. Helianthus knew nothing of proper etiquette around royalty, but she felt as though some gesture of respect was expected, so she did the only thing she knew. In her hometown, thousands of years ago, they had a gesture reserved for their parents, or their most respected elders. She raised both hands to her mouth and placed the tips of her fingers to her lips. She kissed her fingers and held them out to the queen. She’s not likely to understand the meaning, my love. Terianthus said. Your people have been gone a long time. ”Je ne sais rien d'autre.” She replied.
