    SOOOO! I finally cosplayed for the first time ever and I had THE MOST AWESOME TIME at Florida ComicCon! I went as my elf Inquisitor from Dragon Age: Inquisiton. I'm hoping to reappear at DragonCon ❤️
    Here are a couple pics of me and some of my favorite cosplayers.



    There were TONS of Kingpins, but this was my favorite one!

    Childhood right here

    I saw this and laughed! He was a great dude.

    Miraculously … Yes, it was almost as a miracle appeared before his eyes - as fascinated as he appeared though at the same time, as Shushou over the New Moons Ozu had somewhat a responsibility to hold, he was entitled to maintain a grave outwardly appearance. Especially, during a time of a ceremony for the Dojo. Yet, as he no longer felt bothersome by Mikazuki's presence or the arrogant Gin he couldn't help but to glance and find that little Kaori was down at his side tugging on the robes of his wear. The fact that she somewhat teleported, or plane-walked was unbelievable for the young Okami whom had no clue the toddler possessed such a feat. He actually felt the one to be a fool, of course she had special abilities too she was indeed, the Heika's daughter why not? Strangely enough, out of all the time he spent watching over her in the domains of the Emperor's pagoda he had never witnessed once, even a sliver of magical ability from her. However, there she was, down by his legs urging his attention he simply could not refuse to give. His little Shimai. 
    As her Hogo-sha he took the kneel to her level, there was no trouble he'd get in for this even though he now had many an eye staring him down that he could feel unnecessary attention boiling upon his form. Neither was there any embarrassment, she was like a little sister in one way or another that knew how to capture his attention. In fact, she was a master at doing so. Running a hand through her the top of her silky dark hair playfully messing it, she instantly forced her forehead onto his which was strange for the fact, he had no idea of what was coming next. Yet, he trusted that perhaps she had wanted a word with him or something. That was when he felt a sudden surge of energy flux through his form, it was obviously foreign because his own yoki opposed it upon entering. However, the reassurance and warmth caused by it allowed his involuntary defense to back off and allow it to take course. The scent of sakura filled the area around him, then he knew that she had somehow infused a bit of her energy into him. A kiss from her soft pink lips sealed the deal shut and momentarily he had blushed, this was the first time he had ever been kissed and strangely enough by a little girl he considered to be his sister. 
    "Is that so?"
    He had no idea what she meant by a little gift, though his form felt rejuvenated and almost new. Watching as she wobbled back to her father the Emperor he stood back to his full extent and remained idle for the rest of the speech before recess broke for students and audience alike. One thing was for certain, Ozu was starving. Dishes were being passed out and whatnot as the final stroke from the gong was rung, relieving himself from the party of his students with a slight bow Ozu headed off for a bowl of that red rice and some tea for a seat in the bleachers with the crowd that remained there.

    It would appear that the whole operation has gone without a single bump in the road. She was a little awkward in some places and could work on her presentation, but so far she has meshed in well with others who have done this more than a few times. Sincerely speaking, it was a wonder watching how Jack and Cerebri worked the room with so much calm. Eliza had put little thought behind her actions, only going with the flow of the room and adjusting to the atmosphere as needed. Her lack of tact appears to have worked well enough, but she hopes to reach the level the other two are at. 
    As the tavern moved to celebrate the couple's fake engagement, Eliza caught her faux husband's smile, and it made her laugh loudly. Such a brooding man shouldn't smile so sincerely, how a man shouldn't easily slip his charm into a natural conversation. Something was endearing about his slip-ups; it made her want to get to know what else he is hiding under his brooding demeanor and why. Though that would mean she would have to confide in him and she's not entirely sure that is safe; being so careless could be hurtful to them both.
    "Well, another round before we leave or should we pocket this for later?"
    She picked up the money with a smile spread across her face. Their little charade had almost distracted her of the real reason why they're here; Jack providing them money, the tavern giving them congratulations, and Cerebri fitting the mold of the perfect husband-to-be, how could she not forget what they're doing? Her naivety peeked through, and she wasn't quick enough to suppress it; thus, she was a victim to the entire mood, and it made her blush a bit to be so transparent. Scooting the money towards her partner, she grabs her mug and slowly sips her drink while she gets her ducks in a row. 
    "You should probably smile more often. I think it would make you a little less, mm, frightening? I guess is the word I'm looking for."
    Her compliment was meant to help herself get through the strange awkwardness she had created. Plus, she wanted to make sure he knew she was there with him, paying attention to what he was doing and saying. The last thing she needs is him thinking she is not capable of doing this job or that her head is always in the clouds. She can be serious, and she can be very aware.

    @supernal !!!! The hype is strong in you, I like it. 
    I am super DUPER EXTRA HOPING YES PLEASE that there will be some amazing ramifications behind the Gods being killed, especially because Renovatio has some heavily religious roots that are deeply embedded into its history. I hope there are some people who go all angry because of it and try to do something about the loss of the Gods. What is being done is not a small thing! So if there is a group of people who want to come on out and defend the the memory of the Gods then please do. I am sure that there will be all kinds of Zodiac Knights very unappreciative of what is happening ;x
    BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, all the Gods are gonna be dead and/or cut off. So no more of these Gods, they gone, done did in, ded, pushed away, etcetc.

    Eliza took a moment to properly look over the notes and such, an attempt to see if there were any specific clues as to why the District was a point of interest. By its name alone, she can see how come anyone would find it to be an exciting place, but there was nothing within the notes that struck her odd or unique. That only made her more curious.
    "I don't think it would hurt to get a peek at this place."
    Initially, she had openly worried that going near the area would be bad for business, but perhaps they can carve out a niche there. Not many people in this world are scared of ghosts, goblins, and all other forms of unnatural beings. She can't say she is ultimately one of those people, but she is far too curious to worry much about such things. Having lived in a world that shunned the abnormal, she can't help but be drawn to the intricacies of spells, hexes, and the creatures that often hone them. 
    Already her mind begins to work how they can associate such an area with their current dealings. Maybe they will be able to rope in a few lingering spirits to join them or perhaps wrangle a couple of specters to keep the place civil. Perhaps they could be led to unique treasures or other little trinkets that could be useful to them. 
    "Maybe we'll find something interesting?"
    The elf guides her employer outside and locks the door before they begin their little walk towards the mysterious district.

    Aleksei reacted to Thotification in [GS] Cialo   
    Summary:
    Prompted by Khakina Khatun and Serraida Mavajo, the Mistress Blackhead/Madame Linda/Middy Ochre heads out towards the first god her friends had located. Deep within Nahalen was the God Cialo. The flying Mistress spots the god from above and she swoops down to hunt the rampaging deity. Meanwhile, the flying Shishi Ravenbush and old man Lord Suzy finally caught up to see the fight between woman and god. Back on the ground, the Mistress' dive was blocked by the hollow hill Cialo created. Using her light ability, the Mistress bore a hole through the hill but her descent was stopped as Cialo asked the question 'Why?'. The sudden change in tone put the whole fight in an impasse. The two conversed briefly then Cialo began attacking relentlessly. The Mistress manage to survive the onslaught and then turned the tables with her own all-out assault. She manage to land a clean punch to the face but the god did not need a head to survive. It countered with a pair of slamming walls which the Mistress evaded. Cialo then proceeded to summon an earthquake forcing the Mistress to jump but the god delivered a mean uppercut. The god was lucky that a sliver of its divine energy returned and its size grew to a colossal scale. The Mistress was hit and her body launched high up into the air. High in the clouds, the Mistress had an epiphany. Shedding off her personal shackles she returns back down to swoop into the god's chest in a suicide attack. The god's efforts to stop her were rebuffed by the Mistress' special magic fueled by the nameless goddess' essence. When she reached the god's chest, the Mistress released her final attack. Using the nameless goddess' essence, she tuned tuned both divine entities essences allowing her to reach out into Cialo and they converse like two reasonable individuals. There, Cialo confesses that the god is slowly dying, its energy whittling down due to the Kommandant's machinations. The Mistress uses reason to make Cialo concede and the god relents. In the end, Cialo accepts its demise and even remarks that the Mistress is more than capable enough of killing the god outright, recklessly challenging the god just for a conversation is a stupid action. Finally, the god requests that the Mistress kills it. The Mistress does the deed and absorbs the god's essence as well, converting the essencr into a second 'core of the god' relic. Thus the fight ends, a woman wins and the landscape has greatly changed. The next day the Mistress can pays respects to Cialo's grave, one she had set-up overnight. The Mistress then leaves with her group into a portal in search for more gods to hunt with Cialo's essence belonging to her cartel.
    Minor Summary: The Mistress Blackhead/Middy Ochre hunts the god Cial and eventually kills it thus obtaining its essence.
    Notable Consequences:
    1. The Mistress kills Cialo and obtain's the god's powers, knowledge and experiences all stored within it's godly essence.
    2. A mountain range, a basin and a valley were created after their fight.
    Opportunities:
    1. With the recent changes in the land, be the first to explore these new formations.
    2. Within the valley lies the grave of the god Cialo. Visit the grave and perhaps gain insight on how the god met its demise.

    Aleksei reacted to Csl in [GS] Ophiuchus.   
    Full Summary:
    A mysterious stranger named Arende recruits two individuals -- Samael and Ephah -- to kill the thirteenth zodiac, Ophiuchus. Later using oneiromancy, she locates Raine, a dream-witch, and asks her to join them. Initially, Arende attempts to persuade Ophiuchus to peacefully give up his life. The god refuses, fights Arende, then fleea. After a brief rest, the group of four come up with a new plan. Raine locates Ophiuchus through its dreams. Ephah, disguised as Arende by Raine's illusions, challenges Ophiuchus once more, and appears to become hurt by its attacks. Ophiuchus gives chase, shrinking its form as it follows the illusion into a mountain. Arende appears, steals Serpentus, and traps Ophiuchus into its mortal form. As Arende takes the god's quintessence, Samael comes out of hiding and shatters the god. He, Ephah, and Raine take shards of the Zodiac Materia left by the dead deity, gaining the remnants of his powers. Arende removes Samael and Ephah's lunar marks.
    Consequences:
    Arende (Rozharon) gains ownership of Serpentus, the cosmic serpent previously owned by Ophiuchus. She also binds the god's quintessence to herself, taking the conceptual identity of Ophiuchus. Samael and Ephah gain shards of Ophiuchus' Zodiac Materia, also gaining some of the god's powers. Samael and Ephah are freed from the lunar marks and leave the cult of power. Raine also takes Ophiuchus shards and gains some of the god's powers, awakening an old past. The province of Avylon is pockmarked with craters from the meteors, with huge swathes of the jungle destroyed. Opportunities:
    The meteors left in the god's rampage may contain strange minerals from whatever worlds he pulled them from. @Aleksei

    Kaori instantly melted into a pile of loose giggles, playfully shaking her legs away from the tickling at her ankle. All these familiar faces and voices made the little girl excited and not at all satisfied being high above the events unfolding between everyone. To avoid the tickles and the remove herself from her lofty perch, the little one shifted and instantly disappeared, leaving her father's shoulder empty.
    The trick was one she had learned when a group of older children was teasing her, and in a moment of childish emotions, she just disappeared before her assailants and stayed that way for hours before her mother found her. It had taken her mother some time to calm Kaori down, so she returned to being visible; the emotional effect upon her abilities had then been noted. In time, she learned to use her skill to hide from people or play silly tricks on the adults, often landing herself in trouble. Now, she wanted to remove herself from her father's shoulder so she could reappear right in front of Ozu.
    Impatiently she tugged at Ozu's leg, demanding that he kneel to her height so they could speak. Once he followed her orders, the toddler smashed his face between her small hands and held him close. Not a drop of shyness within her tiny form, the little one stared at him with wide-eyed wonder; his reflection happily embedded into her golden hues. 
    "For you!"
    And with all the strength of a toddler, she forces his forehead against her's, pressing the floral note on her forehead to stamp itself upon his skin. A small puff of flower petals would erupt from the content, leaving the heavy scent of a blooming garden behind as they disappeared from sight and touch. Pulling his face away, she examines the red mark on his forehead with a critical approach. Assured that he was now blessed, she kisses the mark, forcing it to disappear and once it does a trickling of warmth would flow through Ozu's veins. It was a blessing both from Kaori (unbeknownst to her) and Celine (the motivator behind this moment). 
    "A gift for Ozu!"
    Releasing him from his hold, she patters back to her father's side and takes his hand.

    Ucissore | skilled revolutionist (assassin)
       -- l'art du liberté [the art of freedom][1]                                 
           ◥ Description: is a form of acrobatics in which PRIDE Ucissore [assassin] pledges learn, using their landscape to perform intricate maneuvers to overcome difficult obstacles/structures. Freedom tecnica [techniques] emphasizes efficiency, and embodies complete freedom of movement, such allows inclusion of many acrobatic maneuvers often simply for aesthetics and or a challenge. Assassins can climb up any wall if its surface is not too flat, and possesses anything one can possibly grab onto [windows, cracks, ledges] through use of the following techniques:
     
    Equilibrio (fundamental; balance) ultimate balance! (not available in combat situations)
     
    Altalena & Laché (fundamentals; swing & drop) is a tecnica where one swings on a bar and lets go in order to grab another object and or to drop to the ground from a hanging position.
     
    Montare-muro (fundamental; wall-walk) is the climbing of a tall wall by running up its surface quickly, using steps/kicks to propel oneself upward.
     
    Planche (fundamental; muscle-up or climb-up) is the act of climbing an obstacle from a hanging position into a position where your upper body is pulled above the obstacle, supported by the arms.
     
    Roulade (fundamental; roll), often called break fall, is a forward roll where the hands, arms and back are all used upon falling to the ground primarily to transfer the momentum from jumps, and to minimize impact and prevent a painful landing.
     
    Saut de bras (advanced; arm jump) is to land on the side of an obstacle in a hanging position, the hands gripping the top edge, stabilizing the body for a smooth transition to a Planche.
     
    Saut de fond (advanced; jump) is a jump from a high height, usually followed by a roll or parachute.
     
    Saut de precision (Precision jump) is a static or moving jump from one object to a precise spot on another object with a small surface such area.
     
    Presto (advanced, fast climb) Assassins climb much faster than using this technique. However, the scheme of the ledges one must grab onto must be simple.
     
    Impossibile (advanced, climb leap) Assassins are now capable of grabbing a potentially out-of-reach handhold by performing a vertical jump while climbing.
     
       -- l'art du coscienza [the art of awareness][2]                              
           ◥ Description: is a mental discipline taught upon entry to PRIDE, allowing the user to hone the mind, sub conscious, and active conscious to work on a higher level to perform feats of mental agility to match their physical agility. With these technique, a man becomes more than a man, he becomes a true assassin.
     
    Sense of Danger with this technique, the user is passively attuned to their surroundings, enough to feel when something isn't right; an effect that can be triggered by anything from killer intent, to the aiming of a magic spell in their direction. While unable to pinpoint exact locations and situations, the user does have a vague idea of direction. As befits an assassin, this makes it incredibly difficult to sneak up on or catch the user off guard.
     
    Lock on Target simply put, a single personage can be singled out to focus the brunt of awareness on. The user becomes hyper-aware of the targets being, their breathing pattern, heart rate, particular footsteps; and thereby able to track them in a city, a crowd or the wilderness with high accuracy out to a hundred foot radius.
     
    Increased Five Senses through harsh, unrelenting training, a new recruit is trained to elevate their five senses to extraordinary heights. They can taste poison in food quickly enough to spit it out, see clearer and further, hear beyond the range of average humans, smell can be focused to near animal like efficiency and touch able to discern the lightest touch.
     
    Accuracy with a need to utilize thrown projectiles and deliver pinpoint precision in strikes, an assassin to trained to achieve flawless accuracy on a repetitive basis. The more one concentrates, the higher their chances of pinpoint success, whether the target is moving or standing still.
     
       --  l'art du artiotto [the art of eight limbs][3]                                 
           ◥ Description: is a combative sport from Babylon (post-ayenee) that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. It is referred to as the Science of Eight Limbs because it utilizes eight points of contact as opposed to two points (fists) in boxing and "four points" (hands and feet) used in other combat sports. In order to be successful, one must first learn to tap into his/her life Lifeforce (natural energy), whether it be through the darker side, that which manifest all that is negative within you, or the brighter, positive side that is pure and righteous. The side effects are grave, for one's humanity could be lost as they descend into the darkness, where some of the stronger beings dwell. For simply wanting to be the victor to your natural hume instincts to survive, could blaze trails to and through the darkness, changing one into a Demon overtime.
     
    Natural energy practitioners can learn to draw the energy of nature inside of them, blending it with their Lifeforce/Life Energy (created from the spiritual and physical energy within them), creating a new dimension of power. Upon doing so, one can then use the sacred arts of l'art du artitto, one's strength, celerity, dexterity, stamina, and durability dramatically increases. The users innate also become more powerful, though more importantly: one can harness the natural energy surrounding them, turning it into an extension of their body, increasing the reach of their physical attacks.
    Disadvantages: drawing in too much energy, being a result of greed, they risk transforming into a demon; a process that cannot be reversed. In order to gather a substantial amount of natural energy, one must remain completely still. These advantages can be negated if one uses a Clonare to conjure said energy.
     
    Clonare is an actual copy of the user by evenly distributing their Lifeforce/Life Energy into it/them, giving each clonare an equal fraction of the users power. Clonare are capable of performing basic and sophisticated technique on their own and can even bleed, but usually disperse after one or two solid blows. They can also disperse on their own and are created in the same condition as the original. Clonare can not be distinguished from the actual person, for they are created with the same lifeforce. This ability requires knowledge of natural energy and a prep per clone.
     
       --  l'art du oscurità [art of stealth][4]         
           ◥ Description:  is set of skills rooted in umbrakinesis, chosen for it's stability of use and being less susceptible to dispels, disjunctions and other arcane counters. Through a rigorous training process, which includes opening the mind of non/unawaken psions, these technique allow an assassin to operate under the cover of darkness, with stealth and secrecy.
     
    Silence just as the name suggestions, this technica thickens the shadows on the ground underfoot, walls that one may brush against, or any surface, to negate any sounds picked up in passing.
     
    Assimilation pools of shadow on a man's face can work wonders for his anonymity; with this, an assassin operating in a crowd can cleverly blur, shadow or shade his face in a manner that leaves an observer with no clue to features.
     
    Cloaking in a similar manner to Assimilation, an assassin can pool shadow around him (most useful when in larger shadows) and seemingly melt into it, nearly disappearing completely from sight. Upon mastery, one may also wrap a shadow around a physical object and hide it from sight, i.e. a metal blade, so as to not be given away by light.
     
    Shadow Warp an incredibly taxing skill, but equally frightening, this technica allows the user to pass through shadow itself, a complex technica that can be used to travel medium distances in nearly blink. It is suggested one not use it in combat, as it requires intense concentration (can only be granted by a Herald).

    Hot boulders were thrown against the tall buildings, knocking them down with ease and killing anything and anyone inside. The city has burst into flames, and the lingering fighters are trying their best to evacuate who they can and save what they can. Rifornire growls in agony, throwing himself around in a frenzy and prompting wildfire and stone to rain down.

    A small pang of jealousy rose when the beautiful elf leaned over to the lieutenant and whispered in his ear. He caught himself, and slowly surpressed the feeling. This was not the time to let feelings dictate the following proceedings, and time was a more important factor than ever. Quickly swiping the phials from Jack, he walked over and obscured the second lieutenant's view of the first, and while the first was being enthralled by the beauty of the elf, he slipped the liquid into the first mug. One down, one more to go. He then quickly passed the second vial over to the elf to settle the second mug of ale.
    Turning around, he picked up the tainted mug and walked over to the second lieutenant. Extending his arm, he offered the man a shake, apologising for the 'blunder' he had caused. Eyeing it for a short while, the lieutenant finally raised his own and took Cerebri's hand and shook it once. Placing the replacement mug on his table, Cerebri tipped his hat to the second lieutenant once again, and then beckoned for his 'beloved' to return to him. While waiting for her, he sat down to his own mug, and readied it to raise a toast to the tavern in celebration of a happy event: his apparent engagement. A small smile crept into the corner of his mouth as he said those words, but quickly again he caught himself and descended back into his brooding nature.

    Killian had known Delaney spoke with Milorian about allowing an outsider in. She believed it was an inappropriate move considering the call for help was a rather delicate one, but because there were no limitations on assistance Aolis was tolerated. He held no grudges against the elf, and neither did Delaney, she was simply looking out for the Mythal name, and it's delicate reputation - as is her job. 
    Thankfully, Del is not the sort to be sour towards someone who has done nothing towards her and has been very courteous and curious about the other elf. A master at discussion, she picked his brain, forced him to entertain her though he didn't look too annoyed by it so maybe force isn't the correct word. Nonetheless, Aolis has meshed into their party with subtle ease, and it's with high hopes that he will stay that way for the entirety of this investigation. Killian doesn't want to do Del's dirty work, and the last thing she'd like to do is send a notable partner of the Mythal House home. 
    When they were handed the letter, he peeked over Del's head and looked it over. He noted her gloved finger tap the initials; then he watched her straighten her shoulders and look forward - there it is. She and her Lord are connected to the mind; the moment she saw the initials, she asked Austere if it rang a bell who would then ask his wife. It was easy to tell when the Seeker is having a mindful conversation, she goes silent and still, almost uninterested in the events. Hopefully, Austere's wife can say something about all this.
    "Do you think she'll know?" He finally spoke up, interested in the silent conversation.
    "We will know soon enough. I had passed the initials over to Lord Austere; he believes his wife may know the initials."
    Suddenly the room erupted with activity, peppering this entire event with the right amount of gravitas fit for a dramatic play. They followed Illyana to the courtyard, but Killian and Delaney did not get manipulated by the rushed maneuvers and the high of hope. 
    "We'll be too late," Delaney said.
    "Ask about ships that have left with any precarious cargo. The person may have been smart enough not to use their initials again, but maybe they let something else slip."
    Killian spoke after Delaney, filling the space before they all rode off.

    Kaori instantly melted into a pile of loose giggles, playfully shaking her legs away from the tickling at her ankle. All these familiar faces and voices made the little girl excited and not at all satisfied being high above the events unfolding between everyone. To avoid the tickles and the remove herself from her lofty perch, the little one shifted and instantly disappeared, leaving her father's shoulder empty.
    The trick was one she had learned when a group of older children was teasing her, and in a moment of childish emotions, she just disappeared before her assailants and stayed that way for hours before her mother found her. It had taken her mother some time to calm Kaori down, so she returned to being visible; the emotional effect upon her abilities had then been noted. In time, she learned to use her skill to hide from people or play silly tricks on the adults, often landing herself in trouble. Now, she wanted to remove herself from her father's shoulder so she could reappear right in front of Ozu.
    Impatiently she tugged at Ozu's leg, demanding that he kneel to her height so they could speak. Once he followed her orders, the toddler smashed his face between her small hands and held him close. Not a drop of shyness within her tiny form, the little one stared at him with wide-eyed wonder; his reflection happily embedded into her golden hues. 
    "For you!"
    And with all the strength of a toddler, she forces his forehead against her's, pressing the floral note on her forehead to stamp itself upon his skin. A small puff of flower petals would erupt from the content, leaving the heavy scent of a blooming garden behind as they disappeared from sight and touch. Pulling his face away, she examines the red mark on his forehead with a critical approach. Assured that he was now blessed, she kisses the mark, forcing it to disappear and once it does a trickling of warmth would flow through Ozu's veins. It was a blessing both from Kaori (unbeknownst to her) and Celine (the motivator behind this moment). 
    "A gift for Ozu!"
    Releasing him from his hold, she patters back to her father's side and takes his hand.
