Hi! Wanted to let you know that I edited the last paragraph in my last post to get rid of the dogs actually attacking since that was not addressed and fits better for a response with yours overall.
Also, I want to know if I have the right mental image at the moment. Ahllasta is in a partially human form, yes? With orange eyes and a horn? Also, how is her name pronounced? The voice in my head is reading it something like, "all-AS-tuh" at the moment, but I feel like that's probably far from the mark.
It was the last sentence or two. Basically stated they lunged at her as soon as they were fully formed. Easy change. And mistakes happen. :-) It's easy to overlook things or forget you read something. Normally I'd point it out, but it struck me as a quicker change for me to make since I knew I was on and had the time. Heh.
Ooh! Picture! Awesome. Did you draw that? Thanks for posting it! No worries about not adding one sooner. I don't expect every character to have a profile picture. Reference pictures are awesome and I love when they are used (and using them myself) in RPs, but just descriptions can work just as well, if not better. I'm weird and even when I use them, I like to pretend I don't have them and still try to remember to add character descriptions and occasional trait reminders. Basically, I like treating roleplays like writing a book. Your audience wouldn't have reference pictures to rely on (unless it's a graphic novel). Keeps me in practice. But that's just me.
Thanks much for the pronunciation! Of course. Your characters absolutely mean something! I'm honored that you're sharing them and the rest of your brain-child world with me in the first place, and letting me have a small part in it all. ^.^
Wait, what? Page three... already?!
Hope you've fully recovered from whatever illness struck you the last time I heard from you! And that all is going well (or, at the very least, semi-decent) on your end.
I appreciate the change, I imagine it's going to make things a bit smoother in the long run here lol.
I most definitely did not draw that, I wish I was that good of an artist lol. I usually have reference photos for the characters I introduce or something close. I have a Pinterest account I use for inspiration. I also enjoy using descriptors though, I should flex the vocabular muscles whenever I get the chance.
Don't worry, it's fun to share it! I've been doing some D&D styled RP's involving this same world lately and it's done wonders for me on learning how to ease people into this world. My recent learnings won't show until we're a bit in but at least things should be a bit more bearable moving forward.
Yeah, we've been marching right along lately!
I haven't really but I've been feeling a bit better. I've been going through a whole lot of illness type stuff lately.
Sorry for the wait! I've been getting ready to move to a new place and put where I'm at now on the market. As a heads-up, because of that and a couple other things, the end of this month and the first couple weeks of next will likely be busy on my end. It's quite possible I'll end up with time daily to reply, but if I disappear for a few days, know that's why.
Gotchya. Reference pictures are amazing, to be sure! I have a couple folders of 'em, just in case. That's a good idea to use Pinterest for that! Do whatever you feel most comfortable with. :-)
Ooh, D&D! I used to do that with friends. We'd get together once or twice a month to play. Good times. Ever play it in person, or just online?
Aww! Well. I'm glad you're feeling a bit better, but if you feel like you need more time or anything, don't feel like you have to get a post in. I'll be here whenever if you need/want more time to recover. I won't be going anywhere. Long-term, anyway.
I understand, take all of the time you need. Moving and putting a house up for sale are always big time consumers. I hope you can reply daily but certainly don't expect it when you're that busy lol
I've primarily played in person but have recently taken to doing it online since I've been away from most of my friends/family after joining the military.
Don't worry, if anything posting here helps to distract me from being so ill. I'm here for the long run too though and I appreciate you being so patient with me as always.
I really feel bad about putting Anora with all of these super-bossy, ultra-powerful people! I'm about to change that though, thus the first part of my most recent post. I know it might have been a confusing mess but she'll be given much more space and perhaps be put in far more legitimate danger soon. Some story points are going to be explained soon ICly at the very least.
Thanks for your understanding! I appreciate it greatly.
That's cool. I've never tried it online. How's that going? Is it an odd adjustment from being used to doing it table-top?
Ha! Don't feel bad. It's fun. Well, not for her, but hey. I'm sure she'll get on plenty of nerves herself. She's a novice, so I wouldn't expect her to pose any kind of threat against her well-trained peers. Doesn't mean she won't try, though. Yeah, I definitely can't wait for that first part to make sense! Heh. It's intriguing, to be sure, and leaves me wondering.
Question, though: You've spelled it Pan and Pahn. Which do you prefer? Just asking for future reference. And it is pronounced like Pan, right? I think I remember having Anora comment something like, "Only if you count Peter Pan," and I didn't get corrected for her misunderstanding, but thought I'd ask. :-)
It's fun. Doing things purely verbally has it's pro's and cons. I enjoy it more to be honest, everything's in the head and nothing's tied down to boards and miniatures. The theater of the mind has always been more enjoyable to me.
There'll be some good developments for her as things progress. I'm hoping to get her introduced to this person because he'll likely try to help her control her magic. You'll understand as things come along but I'm hoping it'll be a fun experience for her.
I spell it as 'Pahn', but it's pronounced like 'Peter Pahn'. Maybe just with a bit more air in it to help elevate it's majesty lol
