Current Technology: can't live with it; can't live without it. Trying to make a Powerpoint presentation for Volcanology tomorrow morning, and Office 365 Powerpoint keeps crashing. RIP

Going dark for a few days. I have a major project for Paleontology due Tuesday morning, and I'm nowhere near done with it, so I'll be away until I get that done. See y'all in a few days.

@Kumbaris Still interested, but trying to figure out what I want to do for my character. I only have a couple general ideas of what I want so far. And I don't have discord.
Sounds like fun. I'm in.
Is there room for an Elezen Arcanist who is also an accomplished fisher and budding culinarian? This sounds like it might be fun.
@VitaVitaAR Edited my CS. Admittedly, the explanation (or lack thereof) of his parents' political views is a bit of a cop-out, but I'm not even really sure why it is. It just seemed right. Also, I gave Velu a limit break (since everyone else has one too).
Name: Velu Ekleros
Age: 16
Gender: male
Appearance: Velu is a human of slightly taller than average height and a moderately skinny build that nonetheless has a reasonable amount of muscle definition (no Mr. Universe, but perfectly capable of wielding a sword of decent size). He is fair-skinned, but not pale, with short platinum blond hair, blue eyes, and a small, slightly hooked nose. He wears a red fedora with a white feather, a red shirt, red knee-length cape, brown pants, and brown boots.
Personality: Velu is an adventurous young man with a strong sense of morals, which sometimes causes him to butt heads with mercenaries that have more mercenary tendencies. Nevertheless, he tends to keep more of a glass-half-full outlook on life and does his best to treat his fellow mercenaries with respect even when he disagrees with them. He owes no allegiance to any country or faction other than himself and his comrades, and his loyalty to his comrades is that much stronger because of it.
Brief Backstory: Velu was born in one of the many countries that had been subjugated under the rule of the Alvadian Empire. His parents had a deep hatred for the empire, but they had no love for Embria, the last nation to resist the empire, either. Velu never bothered to ask why this was (mainly he was too young to wonder why), and his parents never volunteered the information. Velu was still a child for most of this time, and so he had little to do with any of it, but in the last years of the war he was reaching the age at which he was old enough to understand what was happening, even if he was not in any way truly involved in it, and so he remembers much of the events that happened as the empire collapsed and the political structure of Theia was reorganized in the hopes that such a war would never happen again. Over the next five years, very little changed for Velu. He and his parents were still living quiet lives in their little corner of the world. His parents remained mistrustful of the new Republic of Alvad, and still had no love for Embria, and so offered loyalty to neither, and Velu, being his parents' son, followed suit. This sort of politcal mood, combined with Velu's adventurous nature, is what led him to join the Wild Rose when he left home to seek his own way in the world.
Skills: Velu is naturally quick on his feet, allowing him to slip under or around blows aimed at him or to get out of a fight he can't otherwise win.
Abilities: Velu is competent in both magic and physical fighting. While this versatility is incredibly useful, it has the drawback that his prowess in each of these fields is less than that of a more specialized person. His spell library currently consists of Fire, Blizzard, Thunder, Cure, and Esuna.
Limit Break: Magic Sword: Velu can combine a physical attack with any spell, dealing damage equal to that of the physical attack plus that of the spell (if the spell has a healing effect on the target, it will heal the target for that amount instead of dealing damage). This ability still requires that Velu have the necessary amount of mana to cast the spell.
Equipment: a short sword
@VitaVitaAR Okay, quick question (two questions, really, but kind of the same): What's the difference between "skills" and abilities", and which one would spells go under?
Sounds like fun. I'll get to work on a CS soon. Looking forward to playing this out.
Oh, quick question, @Emma. About what time is this set? The backstory ends in the 17th Century, but is this set around that time, or is it later on? I don't want to make a character living in the time of Queen Elizabeth I if this is supposed to be set in modern times.
Sounds fascinating. I'd definitely like to take part in this. If you take reservations, I'd like to claim Nikomedes. If you don't take reservations, I'll try to get his CS done before anyone else beats me to him.
@Zoey Boey I'm not going to say anything that might jinx it, but I'm hopeful.
