When you go from walking around at 5am like a half shut knife to bouncing out your bed 10 minutes before the alarm goes off within a month of early starts at work. Self-improvement, ho!

Best feelings as a GM #1 - Sitting at work cackling because a player has literally set up an amazing plot hook without realising it. *evil chuckle*

Bio

Well, where to begin?

I found my love of roleplays through a brief block of sessions of D&D when I screwed up enough and brought an class from an entirely different plane to join the main party. After following the plot to the end - which involved our dwarven pilot flying a gunship while simultaneously controlling 4 cannons by tying string around them - we ended up crashing through a portal onto a different plane. When attempting to formulate a plan, one of the PCs delivered a line that has stayed with me ever since.

"Ask the artificer, he's already done it once."

Since then, I've done a 3+ year RP between two players - using the FATE system - in which we created an entire city through creating mentally unstable characters and callus cold-blooded killers. One particularly nasty NPC came about by a sheer accident, when the melee-build character out-snarked the diplomat. Which was much more fun than it sounds. Had a bad experience with this site before, in which the GM didn't plan far enough ahead to include any NPCs whatsoever, and the other characters had no interest in Player-to-Player interactions outside of their own 2-man group. Needless to say, it died with incredible speed, which was a shame.

But I was tempted back by a friend to play a Pokemon RP despite having no knowledge whatsoever of the topic outside of Gen 1 stuff, and even that was years ago. Despite everything, I've not only been holding my own, but coming up with a completely separate sub-plot from the main plot, and making the GM's life a misery. (Sorry Zan!)

My writing style draws heavily from the likes of Worm and The Dresden Files, which means I can do a great deal of two things. Snark and Escalation. Outside of that, I like to think i'm a dynamic roleplayer, but I prefer sticking to High Fantasy sort of settings. Anything Slice of Life-y doesn't do it for me. Unless i'm slinging magic, psuedo-magic or demons (while snarking at whoever is unlucky enough to warrant it) I feel as though I could be doing something more entertaining with my time. When it comes to RP systems, I enjoy FATE or narrative based things.

My first RP which I am GMing on this site is themed around Dragon Age as carried on from the far superior (in my humble opinion) plot of the first game.

That's pretty much all there is to know about me that people would actually care about. I'll update it as I do with important changes or epic moments. Until then, feel free to PM me if you have questions or invites to stuff, and i'll respond as soon as I can. ^.^

@thewizardguy I'll accept her, but ask you to self regulate the potential ridiculousness she's capable of with the finer details of her powers. Don't start shunting room fulls of oxygen in an attempt to kill everyone, for instance :-P

Will try get a post up tomorrow at the latest ^_^
That downtime, though, eh? Nice to see the place finally back. Meanwhile, I've been utterly run down with the flu, so will work on catching up on the backlog of stuff to deal with in the next couple of days. ^_^

“Because they’re used as a horror story to keep people in line,” Marwa declared.

The only male in the room snorted. “They aren’t bloody Slenderman.”

Kairi nodded. “Exactly. I’ve seen some of the damage they’ve caused first-hand.” A wicked grin appeared. “Think of how much recognition we’d get if we found and took them down. Probably a pipe dream, though.”

As the solid shadows lanced for Ifrit, he suddenly flipped off his perch and landed in a skid down towards the attacker. Leaping into the air, the power armour moved to kick Zabaniya. Shadows welled around the woman readying themselves to skewer him.

Over the comms, he yelled. “Knight! I’ve got her attention. Take her!”

The shadows unleashed.

@SkinnyTyIf you ever want to come back, let me know. No need to tie things off, I'll take over control of Ifrit from here, if you'd like ^.^

@Old AmsterdamCurrently, Talion's only plan is to stall you =P
@Old Amsterdam That is probably a good sign for me, in combat :-P

Will be getting a post up over the next few days ^_^
At last, got one up =P

@PlatinumSkink I'll let you narrate the specifics of the effects of your attack, since I didn't want to presume exactly what your intentions were ^.^

Kairi looked aghast, before a hint of recognition dawned. “Oh yes, you’re new here. They’re-”

“-an urban legend,” Marwa interrupted. “Nothing more.”

Aedan chuckled. “That’s bull, Mar, and you know it. The Sisters are a pair of powerful aero-kinetics that supposedly work as hitmen and bodyguards for the highest bidder, right here in Boston. Of course, there are no eyewitnesses willing to back up the story, but there have been a number of otherwise inexplicable reports.”

“No idea how strong they really are, but estimates usually put them on Endbringer-tier levels of destruction.” Kairi nodded with a sagely look. “Which is why people here often use them in place of the regular Endbriger-y doom and gloom curses.”

“Despite, as I say, them being nothing more than a myth,” said Marwa with a sweet smile.

Muffled laughter wisped out from underneath the mask. “Come on, now. You don’t truly believe that, do you? I was giving you a little more credit than that.”

30 seconds. His grin grew wider.

“Do me a favour - well, if you both survive. Compliment your friend on his sleep dart. It’s surprisingly powerful. My own preference is for chloroform, but don’t you just find it so hard to get the right dose?” he asked, producing a glass bottle. “Too much and oops. People end up dead.”




Her opponent moved with a sudden and jarring turn, something that with her size and durability should not have been possible. Lost in her black rage, Kaze collided hard against the frozen block of time, and sparks flew across her vision.

Teleporting into a wall fucking hurts.

The disorientation couldn’t have come at a worse time, because before her senses began to return, the armour moved and wrapped around her. Suddenly finding herself restricted and unable to move, she howled in a wordless furor.

“We… shouldn’t,” Marwa said with a lack of conviction. If they went to help, would they make things better or worse? How much trouble would Praetor get them in, especially if they got in the way? “Some of the more powerful heroes in the city are there. If anything were to happen, Praetor should be able to handle it. Doubly so, alongside Vector.”

Kairi furrowed her brow again. “But some of the most powerful villains in the city are there, too. Vulcan, Caustic, Pipeline, Sickle-Cell,” she said, counting on her fingers. “Basically everyone that people here tell stories about and treat like boogeymen.” With a pause, she corrected herself.

“Well, except The Sisters.”

Talion fiddled with the watch on his wrist while keeping an eye on his opponent. Now that his power was taking effect, he’d estimate around 40 seconds before this ‘Gamble’ was out of the fight. All he had to do was stall for time.

Basically, what he’d been doing all his life.




There was a dark flash of emotion in Kaze’s eyes as she watched the armour-clad hero. It was rare for someone to still be standing, even after one attack. She wasn’t a Brute, was she? The attack connected, but did no damage whatsoever. That armour - whatever it was - appeared a damn sight thicker than most materials she’d ever come across. Even tinker tech.

She should focus on a weaker target. That Gamble looked promising. She doubted his ability to dodge an almost infinite number of strikes in all directions. Bringing her knife to the side, she focused on the space just past him and prepared to teleport.

But didn’t.

Who does this bitch think she is?, she thought as her glare fell back upon Knight. It’s bound to break eventually, and when it does…

Her mind raced with possibilities. While she couldn't be sure how much the crowd has seen, if even one person had view of this damn hero making a fool of her, it was one too many. She’d happily restore their fear in her - by opening up her opponent, and gutting her like a fish.

Maybe she’d mount her outside the PRT base.

Catching her knife in a backwards grip, the teleported again. Not away from Knight, but directly past her, unleashing hell as she did so.

vehicle troubles.
Funny you should mention that. Experience here has been much the same. Been darting back and forward between having 0, 1 and *2* working cars for the past week as the family swaps motors =P

Plus i've been working every day the past week and have a funeral to prepare for. Every time I get a glimmer of time it just vanishes before my eyes =P

Regardless, I can't leave this any longer. Will get a post out tonight, although if it is shorter and less coherent than usual, you'll know why =P

There we go, lemme know if I've mis-interpreted or missed anything ^.^
