Posted by Shard the Gentleman on Yesterday, 05:56 PM

             My name is...

 

             Well. I can't really tell you- not yet anyway. Even if I do, it'll probably be a fake one. What I can say, though, is that you're in danger-especially if you continue reading this. If you don't turn away now, they'll find you. They're everywhere.

 

             The principle of your school, the guy who drives your bus, your sibling- they could be one of them and you wouldn't have any way to know. They climb inside of you, become you while you're trapped inside, forced to watch from your own eyes as your body becomes theirs.

 

             These parasites, aliens, are called Yeerks. We don't know how long they've been here, or what their next move is- but we do know this: They won't stop until we've completely succumbed to them.

 

             We are here to fight back. Someone- an alien war hero- left us a weapon, something to fight back against these Yeerks. A blue, glowing cube called the Escafil Device. If you touch it while it's activated, you can gain it's power: the power to become any creature you touch.

 

             Once you acquire an animals DNA, its yours to keep. It's instincts might overrun you at first, but if you stay mindful, you can master your form. Be careful, though. If you don't morph back into your original self within two hours, you could be stuck forever as a nothlit- someone who is forever trapped as an animal they've morphed into.

 

             This is all a secret. The world doesn't know about the Yeerks, or about the people trying to fight against them- and we hope to keep it quiet as long as possible. Maybe we can eliminate them before they become too numerous and too powerful.

 

             Will you help us?

 

---------------------
             Starting before the team acquires this "weapon", this RP will hopefully tell a new story separate from what it's base is.

 

             A group of people- be they friends or strangers who happened to be walking in the same group- discover something odd as they walk along the sidewalk at night. When they decide to go see what it is, the adventure begins.

 

             Here are some things to note:

 

             - You have to have touched an animal before you can gain the ability to become it.
             - If you stay morphed for more than two hours, you're stuck in that form forever.
             - Anyone could be a Controller, a Yeerk infested human, so be careful who you trust.

--------------------
             Here's some basic knowledge on the Yeerks, the Andalites, and other races you'll come across.

#1976598 Book/Novel suggestions?

Posted by Shard the Gentleman on 21 March 2018 - 07:49 PM

There's a quite decent series by James Patterson you might like; Maximum Ride. It's about these teenagers who are part bird, and used to be laboratory subjects under experimentation. It's among the darker side of things, but certainly not too dark! 

 

I will forever enjoy the Animorphs books, by K.A. Applegate! If you like animals and science-fiction, then I highly recommend you give these books a read!  These kids, with advanced alien bio-technology, can turn into any animal they touch. The good and bad alien species are very interesting too. The Hork-Bajir (fearsome looking reptilians but not dangerous and eat tree bark by nature) and the Andalites (blue and tan centaur aliens that created that bio-technology) have been my favorites. Towards the end it gets realistically dark, such as how perpetual war badly affects soldiers... I didn't like how it ended on such a cliffhanger, but I've reread the entire series at least twice.

 

There's this cute fantasy adventure novel by Tad Williams, that has primarily cat characters in it. I thought it was adorable. It's titled Tailchaser's Song. It's about this ordinary cat who goes on a journey to search for his lady cat-friend. It's a tad lighter than the two series I've mentioned. Very good. I'll want to read this book again someday.

I actually LOVE animorphs! I've been reading a crap ton in the last few months!




#1975768 PCGen Help (Oracle, Pathfinder)

Posted by Shard the Gentleman on 10 March 2018 - 06:09 AM

I'm using PCGen to create a level 5 Oracle character, but I'm having an issue. It won't let me teach my Oracle any Class 1 or 2 spells, despite being level 5. Any help?

 

I'm having this issue with Sorcerer as well, along with not being able to level a familiar since it's "Class" (Animal, Magical Beast, anything) is supposedly an Invalid option.

#1967091 Book/Novel suggestions?

Posted by Shard the Gentleman on 25 November 2017 - 07:37 PM

Hi everyone, I'm looking for some good reads.

 

What I'm looking for is something that takes the reader more seriously. I guess kind of like...

 

Remember Pooh's Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin?

THAT was a great movie, because it was dark, but still very much an adventure you'd believe Pooh and his friends would go on. That's kind of what I'm looking for in a Disney book.

 

Dark, but not "EDgELORD" dark. Just reality dark I guess? Doesn't pretend adult things like self harm and such don't exist, yknow?

 

Of course I'm open to darker and lighter things.

Will you eventually say actual predictions? Roll the dice my dude!

*9*

Maybe, but most likely not.

Wow, off to a great start.




#1966248 The Roll of my Dice

Posted by Shard the Gentleman on 10 November 2017 - 11:32 PM

Using a D20 (a 20 sided die), I'll figure out what's going to happen if you do a certain action.

 

"Will I get a job tomorrow?"
*rolls a 10*

"It's possible but don't press your luck too much."

 

Shall we?

 

*this is for fun, not for actual predictions*




#1965947 Interest Check: What kind of Role-Play does everyone want to do?

Posted by Shard the Gentleman on 06 November 2017 - 02:34 PM

When I've seen your interest checks, I'v e noticed really one thing thats most common:

They're kind of bare.

 

You don't really give a ton of details about what you have planned for your RP, so a lot of people don't want to say "yeah I'll sign up" if there's not a lot known about it.

#1965084 ~The Happy Journal~ (Roleplay)

Posted by Shard the Gentleman on 24 October 2017 - 08:15 PM

=SUNSET=

 

~James Harper~

 

              James blushed a bit at the question- he wasn't sure if he should respond playfully, or in defense of himself.

 

             "I uh- I don't uh... well, I don't know anyone. Well, I mean, I know everyone, b-but not on a personal level or anything." James stuttered, realizing quickly he should've responded playfully. Maybe he still could?

 

             "I mean, what would I even say to such a person? 'No cloud, no squall shall hinder us?'" James threw his arms at the setting sun with a welcoming gesture, acting as if he himself was Marcus in "I Want to Be Your Canary." The line was said almost simultaneously with a man on stage, who was assuming the role of Marcus himself.  James laughed, heartily. More than he had in awhile. He'd been stuck in his room alone, only ever visiting town to shop or see plays. He never realized how without friends he was until he had met Vanitas, who offered to go to the stage with him.

 

             Vanitas was a good guy. James was sure. He was scared at first, worried that Vanitas would attempt to convince him to ignore his Journal completely, and submerge the world in chaos.

 

             The Journal.

 

             James had almost forgotten. The smile left his face, his laughter died off.

 

             "Vanitas. Thanks for coming with me."

MEANWHILE

 

             Hungry. Hungry. Starving. Starving. Eat.

 

             The thoughts repeated in their heads. The pack together had been traveling the woods nearby the village for quite some time- a long time without food. The occasional rabbit or hawk was not enough to satisfy an entire pack of Wolves- much less the Keepers.

 

             This group of seven lumbered through, breaking twigs, their black, melted ears twitching with every sound. Their dark blue eyes, shimmering even in the dark, could see every weak point on every animal near them- but with the village taking more care of cattle and sheep, eating was getting harder- and that wasn't the only thing making them hungry.

 

             They continued, each molted leg of coal making a small stump with each step. Their faces were the same as all of their body- black, almost cooled lava texture. Their middle sections were made of an elastic none would be able to describe- they could turn their upper half completely around, as to attack with their clawed hands.

 

             They were the realms toughest predators- and probably the most dangerous. That confidence carried in them. They could beat anyone. The could eat anything.

 

             It was just ahead. A big, meaty creature, with a mane of grace. They could hear it's heartbeat. They could see through its skin, their eyes accessing every possible one-hit area. They grew impatient. They started huffing with anticipation, and began running, now on all fours instead of their usual two. The creature was a horse- a creature they didn't see often.

 

             And they were starved.
