26 days until launch. On another note, a Call of Duty fan told me that Mass Effect's story is bad. I almost threw up.

27 days until rp launch!

28 days. 4 weeks. An rp will launch at the end, and I will keep saying this even though I have before, because it's a more effective advertisement strategy.

29 days. I have decided to launch an rp at the end of the countdown, which (I think) has become semi-famous in RPGuild now.

Details and Background Information

The Archangel - Psychological Description

Avacyn, The Archangel, is immensely benevolent towards humans. She was created to protect them, and she takes her job very seriously. She finds children easier to empathise with than adults - their innocence makes their mindset more similar to her own. Avacyn never smiles, despite her positive alignment, as she does not understand the point. It is believed that she can hear every prayer spoken in her home, Innistrad. She is also not above killing other angels if she decides it is the correct decision - she once killed another high-ranking angel (name unknown) and her entire flight (unit of angels) for allying with demons. It is also worth noting she fought the entire group alone. Avacyn has been described by other angels as one of the most powerful and confident of their race.

The Purifier - Psychological Description

After her corruption, Avacyn, now the Purifier, is a very different character. She believes humanity is the source of evil in the world - not the vampires, werewolves, or even the eldrazi abominations that she was made to defend against. She has commited gencide against humans in her beliefs, she did not even recognise the vampire who created her. Her fighting style greatly reflects her changed mindset: she is much more agressive and uses her speed and mobility to her advantage. She is short-sighted and hateful, focusing on the execution of humanity and ignoring the real threat.

Avacyn - Brief History

The vampire Sorin Markov created Avacyn to create balance between humanity and the various dark creatures that hunted them in Innistrad. By stopping either side from ever getting more powerful than the other, she prevented extinction on both sides of the fight. Though Sorin's method worked for a long time, it was eventually broken by the demon Griselbrand. He challenged Avacyn to battle, and after fighting for days, the only way Avacyn could stop Griselbrand was to trap them both in the Helvault, possibly forever. She did, removing the balance between humanity and the rest of Innistrad, throwing it into chaos once more. She was soon freed, however, by the necromancer Lilliana Vess, who wished to kill Griselbrand in order to free herself from the demonic pact that would cost her her soul should she fail. Releasing Avacyn involved releasing all of the demons in the Helvault, though the selfish Lilliana likely cared about neither the archangel nor the other demons - her focus was solely on Griselbrand. Upon Avacyn's return, part of her defence of humanity involved the cursemute - the transformation of many (willing) werewolves into wolfir, creatures like werewolves, but an unchanging mix of the two aspects rather than one sometimes and one others. In return for this, they were expected to protect humanity the way Avacyn did. A powerful and strange spell cast by Nahiri later planted a seed of suspicion in Avacyn's mind. Over the following months, she witnessed a number of foul acts commited by humanity which convinced her that humanity was unfit for her protection. After attempting (and in some cases, succeeding) to convince other angels of her beliefs, she made an attack on humanity, slaughtering hundreds before she was finally stopped.

Arena Information

Weapons and Gear

  • Avacynian Longspear - Avacyn's twin-pronged longspear glows slightly in the presence of evil (The Archangel) or humans (The Purifier). Its shape means that someone stabbed by it will have difficulty freeing themselves. Avacyn generally wields it in one hand, and it works as a medium for her Burning Light ability.
  • Celestial Armour - Armour forged by angels, made for fightinf the darkest creatures Innistrad has to offer. It is light, but as strong as well-made steel. Avacyn uses chainmail, with plates covering particular areas aditionally (see images for specifics).

Skills and Special Abilities

  • Wings - Being an angel, Avacyn can fly quickly for long durations. The Purifier's are heavily stained with blood, doing little other than creating an extremely intimidating and obviously hostile appearance.
  • Burning Light - Avacyn can channel a beam of light through her longspear. This is a solid, constant beam that will create deep trenches (up to one foot) even in stone. Getting hit by something like this would usually be instantly fatal, and armour or a shield would be little use. However, it cannot be maintained by more than several seconds (about 10), and it is obvious when Avacyn is about to do so, as her longspear glows brightly (more so than when detecting evil/humans) for a second or two before the attack begins.
  • The Smell of Blood (The Purifier only) - Avacyn, The Purifier, can smell a wound from dozens of metres away, making it difficult to hide from her. However, the smell also drives her into a frenzy, forgetting what little defense she was using in favour of an all-out attack.
A 1x1 arena duel between myself and @Redglade. I will be using Avacyn, The Purifier and he Mathew Redglade.

An arena has not been put forward yet, so I suggest The Shrine of Daimyos.
Amazing to see an rp actually get somewhere, I might end up regretting leaving.
Well, there are definitely some real people here, so...

Can anyone tell me about zweihanders? I'm a big fan of Dark Souls, and especially that weapon in it, but when I found out they are a real thing they just seemed, well, impractical. Can a weapon that large really be effective in battle? You would risk hitting allies around you, and every swing would leave you open to attack. Were they ever really used, or is that a myth?

(On a side note, I really wanna get a replica zweihander at some point. They seem extremely cool to me.)
