Not just good--great! Go ahead and put him over in the Characters tab. You good with Gene approaching Peach's Castle just after the recently-concluded boss battle wrapped up? Someone (or a few someones) can spot him and head out to say hello, which will likely end in a fight that ends up with Gene free from the influence.


Alright, thanks! And yeah, that sounds good. I'm trying to catch up on the IC right now so I have an idea as to what's happened, so it might be a bit before I get a post up.

Sure thing. Seems like that's where you guys do most of your talking anyhow.

Are the bodies of Zer0 and Gaige still around? Din might want to give them a funeral if they are.

Also, for some reason, @DracoLunaris' last post made me think that an event where everyone gets shrunken and swallowed by Bowser for a "Bowser's Inside Story" adventure might be pretty fun.

No, Zero and Gaige turned to ash after their destruction. Their spirits, which are now with Ratchet and Courier 6, are what remains of them.

We need some pokeballs. If we bring back some pokeballs so each toad could catch even one of the pokemon wandering around that would quintuple their effectiveness as guards.

True. Plus if Blazermate could put down more than 1 sentry, that'd also help. Those things are brutal.

Hey @Lugubrious, I just wanted to check with you, what exactly are the limitations on "Blank Slate" characters? I was thinking of going with the protagonist of Armored Core 3, but that game makes your character a blank slate. Every aspect of your mecha can be customized, and every feature of your character is up to the player's imagination, since the game doesn't actually give you anything to work with.

Thus, the protagonist of any Armored Core game to my knowledge is going to blur the line between canon character and OC, since I intend to play mine as something other than a silent protagonist who never gets out of their mecha. It's almost like bringing in Commander Shepard: Yes, the major story beats of any individual Shepard's backstory is going to be the same, but the details--and their personality--will differ, often heavily. But this is even more extreme. Even more extreme than the Good Hunter in the characters list, since at least he's actually seen on-screen.

Well, I would prefer (and I think it's a better idea) to have far more defined characters. I've found that blank slates are often uninteresting to play as, even if traits are assigned, and that many who head in that direction lose motivation. The Courier, played by ProPro, is a mysterious figure whose past, appearance and personality are pretty much up to the player, is an exception, but ProPro has demonstrated a strong vision for what those are for Courier 6. If you want to go down this route I can't say no, but I would advise against it.

My problem is actually the exact opposite. I exclusively play characters with traits I can define, because I don't feel confident in my ability to play pre-defined canon characters. It's a matter of not being able to really do them justice.

Odd. I'd always imagined that the chief appeal of an RP like this would be to take control of a character one is passionate about. However, feel free to give it a whirl. I'd be interested in seeing what you come up with.

Okay, so I decided that my Armored Core PC wasn't going to work. Have my Warcraft PC instead! Note that it's like 5AM and I may have missed some things.

I put together a wee sheet for Kamek for when I'm using him.

Alright, terribly sorry for how long it took me to reply, but your character is accepted. He does have a whole lot of equipment, but it seems like you've done a good job limiting it appropriately. Welcome to World of Light! Go ahead and put your sheet in the Characters tab. I myself have no specific ideas for whatever character should occupy your third Kindred Spirit slot; since the others are connected to your Grandmaster, though, maybe you could pick a fun character you really enjoy either to potentially play or to take as a Spirit later on. If nothing strikes your fancy, perhaps your favorite Smash Bros character.

Since it's not reasonably at this point that your character came along like Gene in the nick of time to be affected by the dark wave, he'll still be under Galeem's influence at the start. If you like, I could collab with you and have him get into a fight with some monster or something near Peach's Castle, weakening him enough that a Friend Heart could restore him. Or, you could work with another player for an introduction fight. Any preference, or other ideas?

Thanks, glad to be here. I think I'd go with the monster route. I'd rather collab with the GM than a player (especially since the last time I tried to collab with a player it lasted an entire month and ballooned to 16 pages long).

As for the Kindred Spirit, I'm still not sure, though I'm thinking that maybe a free spirit like Dante or Sonic would be a good fit. I still have to figure it out.

In hindsight, I probably should have asked this before I was approved, but in addition, I was wondering if instead of using Enchanting alone as my third strength, I dump all of Donnie's crafting and trade skills under that one strength. WoW characters have a lot of trades, including things like first aid, cooking, leatherworking, tailoring, blacksmithing, alchemy, archeology etc. The Donnie I play in-game, who this PC is based on, doesn't have all the skills actually, but he does have all of the minor ones (WoW characters can take every minor profession), and two major ones, Enchanting and Engineering.

I'm asking because having his other professions sealed would mean that Galeem's influence also locked away his memories rather than just his abilities, since these are actual trades. That said, the amount of professions WoW characters can master over the course of the game does potentially reach Gary-Stu levels, so I'd be fine if we just keep it as enchanting and leave it at that. Or if you want we can take a third option and say that Galeem did seal his memories.

What do you think?

I'll be looking to move forward past the night and into the next step of the adventure come Saturday. Until then, I'll look forward whatever you folks might have in store. Remember, if you're wanting to explore or interact with NPC's, I'm happy to help.

Just so this post contains useful information, I'm not adding the "Linkle acquires" hider to my word count.
