I could imagine Raiden, Alastor, and Alderon dancing barefoot on a table together. xD

Stats and appearance added.

Gah! I missed the boat!

Oh no! :(. The good news is that Heart may open this back up later.  It's also a trial run, so maybe you can join the later RP.  Sorry!

Is there a character limit that you had in mind, or could we make more than one character?  I had some ideas for another that would be fun to add to the fray.

Oooh. Interesting.

I'l make a sheet when im home.

@Mystics and Thundaga.

Neither of you are getting rid of me!

Wouldn't dream of it.  More characters to have verbal wars with. :P

That would be four people which would be nice and at my current max till i understand how you guys roleplay here

I'm pretty sure that Vaude would want in on this, as this is right up his alley.  Might I reserve a spot for him?

Name: Tibarn Llang

Age: 27



Background: Raised by an oriental family on the planet of Nuu, Tibarn left for space as an exporter, hoping to support his aging parents.  When he returned one summer he'd come to find that his mother had passed away by a disease that had swept through, filling the young man with grief.  He didn't return to his job and instead drew inward, conversing with few and relying on many trips to the bar for comfort.  It wasn't until a trip to death's door that finally snapped him back into living again.  Tibarn left home for space again, this time as a pirate.  He considers himself a pirate with morals, however: he won't take from orphans or the poor, and won't often kill for spoils unless he felt the person deserved it.  Tibarn travels with the crew in search of his sense of self and purpose.  But will he find it?  That remains to be seen.

Position: Gatherer of intel and skilled assassin (also the ship's bartender xD)

Personal Ability: Thievery.  Has a knack for breaking out of almost any cell, and is known for stealthy pickpocketing.

Skills: Great with knives, but thrown and close-up combat.  Great agility and speed, and, again, has thieving abilities such as lock picking and pickpocketing.

Race: Human

Augments: None

Equipment: Jeweled dagger that his father gave him, along with throwing knives lining his vest.



Strength: 10

Dexterity: 15
Intelligence 10
Wisdom 8
Charisma: 15



Overall this looks pretty neat.  I did notice, however, that you didn't give us a place to add the appearance of our character in our sheets, which I think would be a nice addition.


By the way, I wasn't sure what origin planets we had to choose from for our backstories, so I invented one.  If it's a problem, though, I would happily replace it with your selection of planets.

#1984527 Roleplay Preferences?

Posted by Mystics Apprentice on 20 June 2018 - 09:47 AM

I think it should be quite alright here. :). Welcome to the site!  I do hope that you enjoy it here.


We have a few members who are roleplayers, myself included, though this forum is admittedly rather slow at present.  It'll be great to have some more RPers enter the fray, especially vets such as yourself.  I think a lot of the old RPers retired and moved on with their lives, sadly, though there are still a group of us that enjoy it.


Personally I enjoy original worlds and storylines, as well as a good structured RP.  One that has sufficient planning to make it last is highly favorable to me.  In terms of themes, I enjoy a wide variety, though fantasy of any sort is always up my alley.  I have never participated in a D&D RP nor worked with a particular set of rules, but it sounds interesting and I may be willing to give it a shot.


Good luck, happy roleplaying, and I look forward to seeing you around!

#1983016 Marvel: Infinite Multiverse (Sign ups/Discussions)

Posted by Mystics Apprentice on 11 June 2018 - 08:40 PM

Well...I can't promise that because life can throw us unexpected curveballs.

I think what Awesome Sauce is wondering, which I too was wondering, is whether you have a story planned for this, as you didn't provide much of one in the sign ups. Often times when there's no story mentioned the RP lacks direction and kind of dies, something that most people try to avoid. I too would be interested in knowing more of a premise, as this doesn't really cover much.

#1982844 (Interest Check) Marvel: Infinite Multiverse RP idea

I may give it a shot.  It sounds like it could be interesting.

Just so people don't prepare their pitchforks in order to linch me, I will be posting soon. Either today or tomorrow, but I've ideas in mind regarding all my characters, namely the continuation of the Living Armour fight and something to actually do with Soren and Nergal, though speaking of the latter...

Was Yevgeni motioning for 'Mr. Messenger' to sod off earlier? I've actually something in mind for him in response to all he's hearing.

No worries at all; your post will be well worth the wait. :) As for Yev, nah, he was just acknowledging him. Feel free to add whatever you wish. I very much look forward to seeing it.

#1982136 Overworld Sign-ups and Discussion [CLOSED]

Posted by Mystics Apprentice on 05 June 2018 - 02:11 PM

If it is a diplomacy fight you want Mystics then I am more than happy to oblige :D

Bring it on.  :cool:


How long as it been since the world below was destroyed? I don't think there is an exact date.

I don't think it was ever specified how much time had lapsed, though in my mind I was thinking that it hasn't been long.  Yev and Nergal would likely try to pursue the Source of All Life shortly after its creation, so I'm guessing that probably not more than a few days to a week has passed.

#1981877 What other Disney villain should get a movie?

Posted by Mystics Apprentice on 01 June 2018 - 06:03 PM

I would love to see a movie based on the Evil Queen from Snow White.  I loved her depiction and backstory in Once Upon a Time and would be very interested to see what Disney would do with a movie dedicated to her.  I'm sure that she's not just plain and evil for the sake of it, as roughly depicted in Snow White.


A movie on Hades, though, would admittedly be very awesome. :D

#1981852 In search of some good anime recommendations

Posted by Mystics Apprentice on 01 June 2018 - 09:25 AM

That's quite a range o.o
But all immensely gold choices. I'd say if you like Gundam, you may be interested in Eureka Seven. It's a more lighthearted mecha anime, but still quite emotional especially towards the end. However it's quite slow at the beginning, but once you get past maybe the first five episodes it's an incredibly sweet story about a boy trying to make his mark on the world

Also this is quite an old one, but I feel Pandora Agent has a similar vibe to Death Note. They're both quite psychological in a way, but it's been a long time since I watched it so i don't have all the info.

Edit: here's one out of left field for you, but if you enjoyed death note you might like Bakuman, which is made by the same duo. It's a completely different anime series, it's a slice of life about two aspiring manga writers, but it's so firetrucking good.

Yeah, I apologize; I probably should've stated what I liked about these series and what I'm looking for in a new one.  I loved the aforementioned series for their suspense, intrigue, and the way that they make you think.  I also loved the story and (for the most part) their characters.  Pandora Agent would probably be right up my alley, though I'll try to give Bakuman and Eureka Seven a look over as well.  I'm not usually one for Slice of Life, but considering it's written by the creators of Death Note I feel that it might have some potential.  Thanks for the suggestions!


Great choices, great choices indeed!


Oh, and trust me, you've entered a wonderful world which I'm sure you'll fall in love with even more as time goes by! There's so many amazing anime series, and more keep coming out every time, so there's no end to the boundless and countless stories there are to experience! Off the top of my head, let me at least mention three I'm sure you'd like!


My Hero Academia: This anime is about a young boy named Izuku Midoriya, who wishes to become a hero, despite not having powers, which in the anime are referred to as quirks. 80 percent of the population has quirks, but he's one person that didn't end up having one. But even so, he believes that without powers, he can still become a hero, and he always looks up to All Might, his hero and inspiration! I won't say anymore for the sake of keeping you curious, but let me just say that this anime is pure gold, and it's been said that this might be one of the next big shonen anime series of this generation! And rightfully so, because the animation, voice acting, story, characters, music and overall quality are top notch, and I'm sure you'd love it! Oh, and it's a super hero genre kind of anime, so there's that, too! You should definitely give it a watch! :D


Your Lie In April: This is a slice of life anime about a young prodigy named Kousei Arima, who is skilled at playing the piano, but for specific reasons, he fell out of love with playing the piano, and he slowly drew away from it. But when he meets Kaori Miyazono, he finds in her a kindred spirit, one whom loves music, and she plays the violin. She spurs Kousei on, encouraging him to play the piano again, and what follows is an emotional, heartwarming journey filled with feels and the most gorgeous music you'll hear in anime! Seriously, the soundtrack this anime carries is god tier level! X_X


Death Parade: Oh, this anime is one I highly recommend! It's one I'm sure you'll love, and one you'll probably digest and analyze deeply, as it deals with the concept of death and the afterlife! You see, this anime is about a place called Quindecim, a bar that is a sort of limbo for people who die. But here's the catch! The people that come into this place have no memory of dying, and Decim, the bartender, invites them to play a series of games, and through these games, Decim silently analyzes them and sees how their true colors unfold. Based on the results of the game's outcome and how it leaves the two people in question, they are either reincarnated or sent to oblivion. It's an anime that's psychological in the sense that it'll leave you thinking a lot, it'll make you think about life, and the different pairs of people that come each episode really stick! They have relatable situations that could strike home! AND THIS ANIME HAS AN EPIC ENDING SONG THAT SENDS SHIVERS DOWN MY SPINE EVERY TIME I HEAR IT! <3


But yeah, these are just three among more or less 70 to 80 anime series I've watched! Hope these I mentioned pique your interest! :3

Thanks for the suggestions, Key!  I am very impressed by the expansive library of anime that you've watched.  That should earn a medal there. xD


I realize that I should've been a bit more specific in my original post, which I will probably edit to reflect what I liked about each anime and give an example of some genres that I typically dislike.


I've heard of My Hero Academia, though I don't much about it, sad to say.  It sounds like it is well-loved, from what you're sharing, and it might we worth checking into. :). I'm not normally one for Slice of Life and I actually have seen bits and pieces of Your Lie in April, but it sounds like it has a sweet story if looking beyond some of the more slightly cliche moments.  Death Parade sounds very intriguing and very much up my alley--I'll have to check this one out!


Thanks again for taking the time to give some recommendations and to describe each one!  I found this very useful. :)


I might recommend Jyu-Oh-Sei, Ushio to Tora, and so on.

I looked up both, and they sound quite interesting.  Jyu-Oh-Sei sounds like it has a bit of mythology intertwined, and Ushio to Tora just sounds unique.  Kind of reminding me of Samurai Jack in the way that it's episodic in nature and centralizes on different battles.  Thanks for the recommendations!


I am not that into anime so on top of my head I can reccomend only One piece (even though I stopped watching it years ago) that should keep you busy for a long time. My other woulde earth girl arjuna its a beautifull anime (13 episodes sadly) about earth and the problems of modern civilisation I would say you should watch it for the soundtrack alone could not find any digital copy of it but thank god there are CDs of the entire album. My last recommendation its on netflix and there is only one season as of now and they are taking their sweet time but I think it cant take that long anymore until int continues.

I have heard of One Piece and decided to take a quick look at it after you mentioned it, and good gosh, this series is HUGE!  It's on its I think 17th season, each with 32 or so episodes, and has been airing since 1997.  Talk about wow!  As you said, it would definitely keep me busy for a long while, though I'm rather intimidated by its sheer length.  Earth Girl Arjuna sounds like it might be quite interesting.  What is the series on Netflix that you were referring to?  I wonder if it's one that I tried.


All-in-all, thanks for the suggestions!


Not sure if you enjoy animes for their deep plots or for the action,but here's my list:

(it's a bit long and the plus is not very deep,but it's a lot of fun and the action is great)

-Hunter X Hunter
(Those two have a really good balance between a good story and great action and fun,Hunter X Hunter is not too long,but Naruto is very long)

-Code Gease
(These are the ones with a great and deep story,Parasyte is very short and Code Gease is not very long too,is really awesome,you should try to give it an other chance if you can,it gets really good

I really should've elaborated on why I liked the above anime and what I'm looking for in a series.  I apologize for that; I'll probably edit my original post to reflect this.  Essentially I love the deep plots and characterization, as I feel the storytelling can be far better than a lot of Western media.  Action is sometimes nice but I'm not real big on it.  I've seen a bit of Naruto, though couldn't fully immerse myself into it.  I also did try Inuyasha and did like what I had seen of it, especially the fact that it's a real old-school anime.  Maybe I should delve back into that one sometime. :)


Does Code Geass get more involved with its characters over time?  I'm on episode three or four, and I just couldn't feel myself developing a connection with the characters or its story.  Everything felt so impersonal and on the surface.  I'm wondering if I would indeed like it once I get past more episodes, however.  I've heard so much praise for the series, and it does fall into a category that I typically like.  Parasyte sounds very interesting, though definitely creepy (which makes sense, since it's classified as a horror series).  I'll try to give it a go at some point!  Thanks for your suggestions. :)

#1981805 In search of some good anime recommendations

Posted by Mystics Apprentice on 31 May 2018 - 05:25 PM

So let me start by saying that I didn't used to like anime for a long time, but then I came across some gems and am now quite the fan.  I really love anime for their immersive stories and incredible casts of characters, and would be fond of any series that plays to these elements.  Here are some that I like, to give you an idea of my taste:


Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (just everything about it, really, from its storytelling to its suspense, and I loved the characters)

Death Note (I loved the suspense and immersive story)

Erased (It was very intriguing and similar to Death Note in a lot of ways.  I also found the characters to be especially relatable)

Aldnoah.Zero (I enjoyed the political intrigue as well as the storyline, but it was also amazing in terms of soundtrack)

Gundam Wing (for essentially the same reasons as Aldnoah, excepting maybe the storyline.  I liked the politics and the characters)

Fate/Stay Night (and rest of Fate series, though Stay Night is my favorite.  I love how beautiful this anime is, from its graphics, music choice, and overall storytelling and emotion.  I felt that this was a well-rounded series that I just enjoyed immensely.)

Yu-Gi-Oh (nostalgia reasons)


Things that I typically dislike in an anime:


High-school settings

Slice of Life

Anything too oriental


I've tried Fairy Tail and didn't really care for it, and while I somewhat like Sword Art Online I feel that it has its fair share of problems.  I've also tried Code Geass but I just couldn't get myself into it, though I know that it is popular and well loved.  Does anyone have some suggestions on what I may like that is similar to the ones that I mentioned enjoying?  Thanks!

#1981721 Some computer help or something to play an older game

Posted by Mystics Apprentice on 30 May 2018 - 03:48 PM

I think it's going to take some experimenting to decide what method works best to play it on.  Do you already have the game disc?  Personally I would opt for an option that will cost as little as possible.  Building a new computer just to play one game doesn't sound like it would be worthwhile to me.


I favor the advice that Sigrun proffered and just get an external disc driver so that you can read and play the game on your netbook.  Does your Netbook run reasonably well?  If not, I would probably try to contact support to see if you can get the other version of the game.  It might be a one-time hassle, but it looks like your other options will be problematic as well, or at the very least expensive.


Good luck!

#1981210 Overworld RP

Posted by Mystics Apprentice on 24 May 2018 - 01:40 PM

--King Alderon -- Mystras: Preparing for the Final Battle--


The human king stroked his beard while Soren spoke, contemplating what sort of challenges awaited them in Isopolis.  If what the former Sentinel of Isopolis said was true, then much was at stake in retrieving this Source of All Life.  They didn't pass any trials upon exiting Isopolis during their arrival into the Overworld, but perhaps it was within different chambers of Isopolis that this threat lived.  Much mystery shrouded the shrine, after all, and anything was possible when it came to magic.  Despite the risks, Alderon was determined to venture into the heart of Isopolis, for he felt any amount of risk was worth the gain of his revived world and daughter.


"I am with you," he informed Soren with a nod, before turning to leave the study.  "Raiden--"


He turned to glance at the ruler of Mystras over his shoulder, gray eyes softened.  "We may have our differences, but we are much alike, you and I.  We hold close to our hearts that of which we find precious, and will stop at nothing to attain our dreams.  We are not defeated yet, so let us not throw in the towel just yet.  Fight this final battle with me, Friend.  Let us see our dream of unity come to fruition after all."


With that, Alderon left the study, his cloak of Mystran blue trailing behind him.


--Elia Cabret and Yevgeni Malachite -- Kilkis Seres Foyer--


A satisfied smile crossed the young fairy's face, turning to Henry with smugness.  She entered the palace at the dreadnaught's side, neither speaking a word.


The palace was very much as Elia remembered it, on that fateful day when their adventure first began.  The marble floors were no longer frozen, however, so that difference was significant.  The same stained glass windows remained intact, depicting histories long past, while the spiral staircase hugged the outer wall and lead to the upper floors of the palace.  The foyer was magnificent, and it was there that they met with the regent himself, having been summoned by Nergal's cry.


"My apologies, good sir," the elf murmured to the Queenslayer.  "I was seeing to a matter concerning the young human king.  What can I do for you?"


He then caught sight of Elia and Henry, causing him to draw in a sharp breath.


"I see . . . .  So these are the visitors that you brought me."  It was a statement, not a question, to which Yev pursued with: "So,  if it isn't my sweet fairy admirer and this so-called human Dreadnaught"--he turned to Henry and offered his gloved hand--"we meet again.  It is good to see you under better circumstances.  Might I get you anything?  Tea, coffee, wine?"


He turned to face a set of doors, clasping his hands together charismatically.  "But how rude of me; allow me to offer you a seat, where we can discuss whatever business you brought me."


The blond elf led them away, and as they followed Elia hissed in Henry's ear: "I hope you have a good reason for wanting to see him."  The disdain that Elia carried for the regent seemed misplaced by many, though within her heart she still blamed Yevgeni for the death of her sister.  It seemed that Yev potentially felt responsible as well, for why else would he give Elia such high regard and proffer her special treatment at every turn?


--Everyth Castanova and King Alderon -- Mystras: Raiden's Villa--


"I do not think any of us could've predicted what happened down there."  Everyth wasn't the type for self-pity or to comfort those in need, yet she found herself fulfilling the role more times than she could count at present.  "You did what you thought was right, as did we all.  No one foresaw the death of the queen, or the corrupted takeover that led to the death of billions.  What more do you really suppose you could've done?"


It took all of the raven-haired woman's willpower not to break down whilst discussing the loss of their world.  It was doubtlessly hard on them all, and yet it struck the hearts of the humans the hardest.  It was their mother planet.  It was home, and no amount of pretending or integration could ever replace it, regardless of how pleasant the Overworld may be.


Down the hall she heard a door slam shut, followed by heavy footfalls shortly thereafter.  Everyth glanced over to find their king walking past, which instigated the sorceress to sweep down into a curtsy upon the cold stone floor.


"Your Highness--" she started, but was interrupted as Alderon rose a hand.


"Please, not now," Alderon interjected, glancing between Everyth and Arthur with a look of weariness.  "We have important matters to see to.  It will be dangerous, but if you desire to serve your country, now is the time to do it.  Prepare yourselves to join me once more.  We might've just found a way to restore what has been lost."


At this Everyth's gaze danced from the floor and to the wrinkled face of her lord.  "Restore?" she repeated.  "Is what you say true, milord?"


The king was silent, turning his gaze to Arthur.  Taking in a deep breath, he recounted the tale that Soren shared, finally explaining his stance and determination to set forth.


"Well, count me in," said Everyth, rising from the ground at last, as though forgetting that she had been there all this time.  "If I can save the princess and our world, I will gladly lay down my life if I must."
