Shrooms! Out of Character

Shrooms! Out of Character

Postby DeadPigeonGolem » Wed Dec 22, 2010 2:12 am

First post!!

Onto business:

Two new applicants. Y'all know blackshade10 and there were no objections. Eltharrion also wants to join, and here's his character sheet.

---

Name: Elh'vir Da'sutra

Race: Drowussu

Age: 61

Equipment:
Clothing and armor: Long, almost complitely shredded and multiple times fixed dark-grey cloak (mostly his own blade's fault), long & loose black hakama-like pants covered with scale armor over thights and hiding short armored boots (pants are shredded and sewed multiple times quite badly in parts where armor doesn't cover them), dark red shirt covered with sleeveless chest plate and waist scalemail (again, shirt is shredded and sewed in parts where there is no armor) and really heavily armored right-hand gauntlet reaching elbow.

Weaponry: Long dagger, shortsword and 2 throwing knives at belt. Elh'vir's main weapon, snake-blade (a 1,5 meters long cord with multiple different-sized and -formed blades attached to it's whole lenght, excluding the handle, and a longer dagger-blade at end, meant to be either whipped or throwed at enemy and this way pierce armor or to be coiled around armor joints and even cut limbs off, or to just simply pull target off-balance so that user may move for a kill. Also extremely deadly against unarmored parts of body. Nearly as deadly to user as it is to target, hence Elh'vir's ragged clothes and multiple scars), is tied around his waist.
Other items: Small pouch containing basic medical herbs meant for first-aid, kit containing 5 rolls of bandages, extra blade peaces for replacement, sharpening stone set, emergency ration pouch (dried saltmeat & nuts), sewing equipment (needles, different kinds of strings & buttons). Also has 3 ada in his pocket (last job's remaining money).

Magic: Air element sorcery & basic mana arts
Elh'vir can use basic air magic, but he can only use it to create uncontrolled gusts of wind, or to craft winds to give him some limited degree of control over his weapon's movements. Has had only the most basic training in magic.

Beginning city: Chel'el'sussoloth

Clan: Da'sutra, subhouse of Dutan'vir

Background: Born into a far side-branch of the Da'sutra house, Elh'vir gained the basic training and way of living trough his childhood. His mother was a sergeant in Da'sutra army, while his father was former field medic who had lost his other arm and eye and thus shocked with the impact and quitting the army. Elh'vir's father was closed person, never really talking to anyone anymore, just doing his job, so Elh'vir grew fast away from him, instead spending more time with his mother. Being bit sad with getting only a son instead of daughter, as Elh'vir was the only child, Elh'vir soon gained the impression to please his mother. He wanted to succeed in something for her.

Due to the fact he was only a minor branch's son, he wasn't even sent to Orthorbbae, but instead trained in combat and magical arts by his mother and Da'sura army trainers. During his training years he gained quite a lot of friends and passed classes with good rankings and grates. However, at the same time he got into trouble multiple times for being a bit loud-mouth and rash thinker. His mother punished him many times, sometimes lecturing him about clan honor, sometimes physically. Still, he yearned to please his mother, and aimed to claim higher and higher in skills his mother was a professional, magic and combat.

In the study of magic he got crushed quite fast. He just couldn't catch the more complex techniques, and instead just inherited his mother's air affinity in form of great air-gusts. In combat arts, however, he made good progress. One day, after harsh training and another good-graded compliment to him, Elh'vir's friend challenged him into a friendly duel. They would go to storehouse eyes blindfolded, and use the first item they find as a weapon. When Elh'vir went in and grabbed something, it appeared to be a short rope. First thinking he would surely lose, he still tried the duel against his friend. He lost this duel, but actually managed to last quite long with his rope. Then, he had an idea. One way he could surely impress his mother. He would create a new type of weapon, one that Da'sutra hadn't really used before. He was around his 30 this time. It took him years, but slowly the "snake-blade", as he called it, started to take shape. Finally he managed to create a combination of blades and cord that would actually move and cut as easily. He started training with it in secret, but the first tries were horrible. He managed to cut his face and body multiple times quite badly, and managed to even lost a pinkie from his right hand when trying to catch the blade. Nevertheless, finally he managed to cut practice targets without hurting himself. Proudly he went to his mother, who actually praised him for his invention. Elh'vir could clearly see his mother was lying and thought the idea was stupid, but still he continued his training among his everyday life. He was sure he could succeed in this.

Around Nidra war, Just the beginning of the battles, Elh'vir was sent to escort mission on one of the Lo'shack field operation on extremely dangerous territory. Their mission was going on well, when the word came from Chel'el that Nidra wars had begun, and Elh'vir rushed back home. He barely missed the great battles, but was just in time to see her mother. She had been stabbed trough the lung, and was dying. Faintly, she said that she was proud of her son, and really meant it when she examined the snake-blade. Then, taint took over her, and she nearly killed Elh'vir that moment. He took away, watched his mother transform into a demon, then spun around with his blade and cut her head clean off. At that point, his mind broke in some point. He had saved her mother, but at the same time he had killed her. He ran away, not wanting to believe his own mind and doings.

Next 15 years, Elh'vir spend around Chel'el's criminal- or demon-infested areas, looking for reason to kill anyone and practice his blade more. He didn't really care what happened at that time, he only wanted to master his weapon, the one thing he could have made his mother proud. By some fate, he actually didn't become tainted during this time. At some point he was a burglar, thief and beat-robber. then people started to see his power, and he got to be a hitman, protector, fighter and many other jobs. Always hired for one thing, and one thing only, paid in cash enough to sustain him until the next job comes around. Then he started to come back to his senses. He met other Da'sutra survivors, and started to understand that his clan was still alive. All the guilt of not doing anything for his clan or other Dutan'vir washed over him at that time. He tried to regain his connections with clan, but just couldn't anymore. All his former teachers were dead. Most of his friends had become tainted or were dead. So, he tried to continue his life the same way, while at the same time helping the clan from afar. It has worked this far, but who knows what comes next.

Combat abilities: Elh'vir has gone trough the standard training for Da'sura, meaning he has mostly practiced to fight alone or with few allies quite efficiently, and as natural left-handed person can fight in mirror-ways of normal fighter. Also, he has practiced with his freetime, studying the use of his snake-blade. This gives him quite good rank in skills, as he is really accurate with the blade and can even use a bit of magic to guide it to coil around target or impact them with more power. Downside, his attacks are quite wide movements and can easily endanger people around him, and if his blade's movements are hindered or his rythm of attacks is broken, in most cases he manages to cut his own body as the blade recoils back. Elh'vir has practiced to use mainly his left hand for holding the blade's handle, using armored right hand to cach the blade itself and spin it around with better control.

Description: Wears torn clothes that he himself has sewed back together just to be cut again in the next fight. Multiple deep scars run over his face and neck, and he misses a piece of his right ear. His right hand gauntlet is scratched more from the palm-side than from outside due to the constant grabbing of his own blade cord. Wears a little smile on his face, but also carries the darkness, pain and deep grief on it. Almost all the time quite rag-looked, most people might think he doesn't shower at all. Which is sometimes true.

Quite thin, but agile-like body. Flexible. Withstands pain quite easily, being cut by even his own blade and all. Withstands mental pain, too, especially fear caused by demons and similar things. He rather rushes at them, believing he will help his clan and mother with every demon he kills. Bit too aggressive against demons, might run into them without thinking. Can't really stand tainted in the end, unless they can REALLY prove to not be just demons in disguise. Extremely loyal, but doesn't care about lives that aren't his close friends or on his clan's or his job payer's ally list.

Height: 173 cm
Weight: 59 kg
Hair: Most of the time brushed harshly back and hold in ponytail-like style, cut in random length from different spots. Other times held openly, when you can really see the random cut-lengths of his hair. Almost gray-red from dust and dried blood he hasn't been able to wash off properly. Natural color light brown-grey.
Skin: Natural light-grey, but again it is most of the time covered with dirt, ash and blood spatters.
Eyes: Almost black with a hint of silver or gold in the back of them if looked deep in.

Thoughts? Also, any thoughts on Eltharrion and Blackshade's ways of jumping in? I recommend an "ambush the ambushers" segment, where they flank the enemy and we demolish them between us.

Is Eltharrion's character already approved? Just so we know if we are reading the final version.

I think the crucial point here is for both characters' players to find a good reason to be on their way to the surface (since we already went past Machike) and tag along. With that, the way they are introduced can be figured out more easily.

Seeing as both are skilled warrior, seems a rather unlikely scenario. : p

For the sake of logic, I think that DeadPidgeons idea of the mercenary warriors popping out and ambushing the ambushers is more fitting. : p

Another Drowussu eh? Another character to be rude and discourteous to. :D. lol. Okay, I have no problem with Eltharrion joining. But I really think that we should put a cap on the rp now. The more people in a thread the less cohesion and the more chances for that thread to drag because of an unresponsive members.

Yes, Eltharrion has been approved. I think he just never got a chance to use him.

I believe that blackshade10 mentioned that Elk, his character, is part of a mercenary corporation? Since Elh'vir also is a mercenary, perhaps they're "initiating" Elh'vir into the "order" or esting his skills?'

Also, have y'all who've responded posted in the RP? ((Rhetorical question))

Hey guys. I'm on my grandma's house right now so it's kind of difficult to access a PC all the time. I'll try to keep with the daily posting, but I'll likely be the last one to post on the order.

Now, excuse me, food is looking delicious over there! :w

Heh... Clearly everyone got nice Christmas time, considering how little life we have around here.

No, not saying this is more important than you family, friends and well-deserved holidays. Just saying it's nice to see people having fun and travelling and stuff. =9
