While not required, the fastest way to reach me and my goblin brain is always going to be @ing me on Discord.

Here's my CS, with some of the alterations we discussed via PM. If I still need to change anything or if something could use improvement, please let me know! I also welcome feedback/critique from other players!

I would like to join, but for now, what is the goal? Basically rebuilt whatever clan our character choose or is aligned with? And what is the limitation (I.E Can we create our character in any of the factions involved?).

@Zeroth i will fully review this later today (within like 16 hours)

Characters would probably have some kind of personal goal they're working towards. It could be rebuilding their clan, it could be getting revenge for the death of someone from the war, it could just plain be exploring the world. The overarching goal of the story hasn't really been finalized since I plan to work around the initial group of characters, but it would generally involve accidentally becoming embroiled in a conspiracy about the war and figuring out some answers about the war.

In regards to faction, Almost, yea. You can have your character be of any faction. Martial alliance, recusant, scattered Heavenly Demonic Cult, independent. The only limit is probably currently being aligned with the Devil Clans, since that would paint a massive target and be a little unwieldy. Former Devil Clan is fine though. The main thing is that your character should, in theory, be able to wander in a theoretical neutral zone within the Jianghu and not be iced on the street.

No real changes; it's good. You're free to put him in the character tab.

The only thing for clarification for everyone (it's not really that big of a deal) is that jianghu, gangho, wulin, and murim are all interchangeable terms to describe the martial world, not necessarily like a branch type deal. It's pretty much just Chinese vs Korean versions of the same word, with wulin/murim having the more flowery connotation. Part of this is honestly me not wanting to keep track of 4 different words for the same thing.

I'd like to apply with a character in similar theme with Condor Heroes' Xiaolongnu, how would you rank her at the beginning of her story, and possibly reasonable age for her in your setting?

Here's her profile if you're not familiar with the lore

Condor Heroes came out at a time where being ambidextrous was a full on martial skill you had to learn, so it's a little weird to place it on more modern power scaling.

I would probably say as a general rule of thumb that your character shouldn't be a master and they should generally be pretty specialized. IE, one main art (at the beginning, at the very least) and any additional technique should seek to enhance or work alongside it. Basically, you shouldn't have both jade bee control (even then, I would hesitate for living bee control; it would have to be a character that impresses me) and skilled swordsman.

Reasonable age is pretty much do not play a literal child unless you have a really good concept that only works if they're a child, don't play a super old man (unless you have a really good concept) because that would either mean you're a master (which I would rather not have) or a martial dead-end (which limits the future, but is funny). No going past the natural human life expectancy since that would also imply being super deep in the master tree, also no immortality because I don't want to deal with timelines.

I saw that a 0th post is already present in the CS tab, but did you want me to wait until you added your own character in a 1st post or anything like that?

Alright. I think I've finally got this working. Apologies in advance, everyone -- this is probably the most ridiculously extra CS I've ever made on this site. XD

She's good. You can put her in the character tab.

She's good and you can add her to the character tab, just a few things for everyone's posterity:

The Iron Concord isn't specifically a faction. It's a general treaty between the recusant and the martial alliance. She would still be a recusant (or independent?), since recusant is pretty much shorthand for someone on the unorthodox path. The unorthodox path basically being any clan not following the general tenets of honour that the orthodox follow. It is good to know that she supports it, though.



To the both of you (since you guys had relevant clan information), I did some writeups with the information you provided and a little bit of my own work. Tell me if that information is good, I misread it and got something wrong, or if you had something else planned for it. I should probably add more to the write ups, but I am very bleh right now.

Old man incoming. Do tell if there's things I still need to change or adjust.

Here's my main thoughts on it.





This is also a message for everyone.

I know I called ranks things like peak master and this requires a bit of specific knowledge into different wuxia series, but words work a lot better if you shuffle things around a bit. You reach the position of peak master, you breakthrough to the peak realm, etc. Also capitalizing every single title is kinda ugly. I'm not the most consistent with it, but you don't need to capitalize things like qi, peak master, etc.

Also, the IC will probably be late-Friday to some time Saturday.
