If we could measure and harness the level of stress everyone is feeling this week, we could probably power the country for a long time.

I'll fix up this Bio later to make it real nice. For now, know I used to RP all the time but I had a few years hiatus. I'm back!

Preferred RP types: Fantasy (high or low), sometimes Slice of Life, sometimes Sci-Fi.

Edit: We can be the masked bandit gang.
Great OOC! You clearly put a lot of time into this, I hope I can create a character that will do this justice.
@Whoami Man, somehow missed your post! Take all the rest you need, falls can get really nasty on ice.
@Dark Cloud That's actually not a bad idea, on the Phoenix thing. There are two items in the game (maybe more, it's been a while since I played) that resurrect your character when you die (or bump you back up to x% hp on killing blow, but same difference). Those are pretty strong, and I think to start off with that for the RP would be really strong. So to counter that in a sense, the cardinal could just be a baby Phoenix that requires some boxes to be checked for it to fully form into a grown Phoenix, allowing a one-time rebirth.

Could be something simple like: kill x enemies with the cardinal (very difficult as it is a regular bird), feed cardinal x potion x times, or feed it x fruit.

Or rather than rebirth, it can passively give a boost in a small aura like fire resistance or extra movement speed.

But that's all just if you go with a Phoenix. If you want to stick with a cardinal of courage, I think that's good too. Maybe it can have long-term effects. Maybe it can warn the next ? room will have enemies.

A. It's really just there to annoy everyone; I'll add the stealth idea to it
B. Should I change it, or have no blessing at all?

Ultimately it's your character and your choice. I think the blessing is fine. After considering it all, I'd just move the "curse" aspect of the cardinal up into the blessing. Threatening to take you out of stealthy stuff with the bird feels like a bigger detriment than having the boon of courage, so if you're fine with it I say go for it.

Overall, a cool character that seems to go against the normal archetype (impatient rogue) in a good way.
@Reflection I appreciate it! I think I'd be better off having someone to work off of as a partner rather than making a character independently, as I don't really know what to expect. That said, I don't mind either role.

can someone help me with this? ;-;

I like the idea! What is it you're needing help for?

Things I'd like to address briefly:

A. How does the cardinal act as a curse as it sits on her shoulder? Does it whisper insane, old god phrases into her ear? Does it chirp every time she attempts to stealth (definitely a negative as she's a rogue archetype)? Is it a really fat bird and it weighs her down? All that to say without further detriments, I would just move it up from curse and add it to the blessing. Personally I don't think it's powerful enough to warrant a curse unless you want to add more.

B. The blessing almost feels redundant. My initial read was that touching the cardinal would grant courage to someone already courageous. I think I understand it now that if courage is required for a situation and the cardinal is available and amenable, then it would definitely be a boon; e.g. jumping a chasm.
Well hey, sounds like to me we're all good on that front! I really appreciate your understanding.
