@Lurking Shadow I think including serpent people would be fine. Go ahead and send me some more details (either here or in pm, whichever you're more comfortable with) so that I can see if we'll need to make them a separate race or if they'll fit well enough as a subset of the other beast races.

Also, I'm glad that you like the idea of healing magic being able to animate objects. :D It always seemed to be a natural way to extend the idea of healing magic to me.

@MojaveCourier That's a pretty sweet coincidence. :3 I went back and forth about whether to detail them further, but ultimately decided that it could at least wait until later. If you want to come up with something, however, feel free to do so.

@Compulsive86 Thanks for the encouraging words! It means a lot! :D

having an occupation of animating things makes kind of makes me want to name my character after a certain scientist *cough cough*
but that wouldn't really fit the nomenclature I've been sticking to so far among a few other reasons. A good lesson in 'Just because we can, does not mean we should' though.

You did not really specify what details you need (physiology? culture? a brief history of thier existance and what they as a race have accomplished?) So I'll just have a quick summary of a few of the things I think would be important in no particular order. I am willing to budge a bit on anything to make it fit better for the RP if needed.

Serpent people are essentially very large snakes with limbs and share many traits including venomous fangs and a keen sense of 'smell'. Culturally they are fond of alchemy and have crafted all sorts of manner of potions and poisons for nearly any purpose. They are carnivorous and, only possessing fangs, are incapable of chewing and swallow prey whole to digest over several days. Normally they eat something nearly as large as they are and can go a few weeks before requiring any more sustenance. As a society they value hunting above nearly all else and are all taught to abide by a set of ethics valuing stealth and a clean kill. They are generally friendly to those of other races and may help others if they are able to.

That's all I can really think of right now, if I missed something let me know.

Well, I'm sure as every culture is different across the world; every tribe would be different if the space between them was sparse and far enough. So I think i can only speak for one tribe

Okay guys, I managed to finish putting together the information on the various races (kudos to anyone who checked and saw that they were finished already). I also managed to put together a more aesthetically pleasing character sheet. There are a few differences from the previous version, but nothing that should require significant rewrites. :D Also, I touched up the Evocation school description to make it a little clearer advanced users can combine elements to create new effects and eventually manipulate local weather patterns. It was always my intent to have nature magic be a part of Evocation (as it's really just elemental magic), but the description didn't seem to indicate that. I'm going to repost all of the information here so that you don't have to go back and forth between pages until the OOC is up. :P












@Lurking Shadow I was mostly asking about the culture that you had in mind for them because the picture you provided gave me a pretty good idea of their physiology. I think that they'd work well as a particular ethnicity of the Tosuri (probably with an Enuri version as well). If you would prefer that they not be meshed with the Tosuri, go ahead and fill out one of the race forms and send it my way. :)

I'm not going to lie, the thought of using Animancy to reanimate corpses never really occurred to me. I suppose that it would technically be possible, though it would probably be too messy and inefficient for many people to bother trying it. Not to mention the taboo would make most people hesitant to really consider the possibility.

@MojaveCourier That's perfectly fine. :D I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

I'll probably go with that for the sake of simplicity as long as you are fine with me having a few things different about the culture which I'll justify them by maybe being separate from any 'main' tribe, . I'm at a convention right now so I prob won't get a sheet filled in till early next week after I get ba k home on Sunday.

This seems really interesting! Can I start making my character for this?

Kind of interested, especially after reading through the schools of magic.

Sorry for disappearing for the last couple of days guys. I've been getting ready to move to a different state, and it is getting rather hectic. I plan on having the OOC up sometime this week, though I'm not going to be able to get more specific than that right now. Feel free to work on your character sheets in the meantime. I can't really think of anything I could include that would require you to radically alter your character sheet. As always, don't hesitate to ask me any questions you might have about the story or setting. :3

@Lurking Shadow That's fine. I'm not expecting that every ethnic group in a race has the same traditions anyway. :D I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with for your character!

@FurFox@Hashih I'm glad to hear that you guys are interested! :D Please let me know if you have any questions!

I was just wondering how are our characters going to meet and such also are there going to be a session in which where each character shows off what they can do to the others?

@OrkytheOrc I figured the characters would meet by arriving at the guild. There, everyone would be able to show off what they do as a part of introducing themselves to each other.

I'm sorry again for the delay everyone. With moving several states away to go to grad school, moving in, and orientation over the past week, I wasn't really able to find any time to work on the OOC or give an update about my lack of progress. Now that I'm moved in, however, I should be able to find more time to spend on this. :D

All that said, I did spend most of the day today putting things together and I managed to get the OOC up! You can find it here!
