Role Play Details

  1. Card Games

    Ahhhh yes, Munchkin. How many different genres does that game cover now? I like that you can combine all of them, though I think it requires a supplement called Munchkin Blender. Cards Against Humanity is great fun, so long as no one is easily offended. It can get pretty wrong. I also like Apples to Apples, which is the family friendly version of CAH. Well...friendlier, anyway. XD Dominion is another fun game, but it's more politics and commerce related. Oh! And SPANC! Space Pirate Amazon Ninja Catgirls. XD
  2. Card Games

    I play MTG pretty much exclusively anymore. I used to play Yu-gi-oh, but then everyone around me stopped playing it, so I ended up selling all my cards. I've always wanted to try out the Digimon TCGs, but none of the shops around here carried the original run, so I have no clue if they will bother with the new cards. I might have to buy them online or something. At any rate. As far as MTG goes, I usually run R/G Steamroller decks, R/B Demon/Ogre Handmaiming, or straight Green Elven Stampeding. This is my EDH deck. http://www.mtgdeckbuilder.net/Decks/ViewDeck/edh-deck-298325 It got me to 5th place in a local shop tournament, about four or five years ago. Someone told me recently that it's not fully legal anymore, which sucks, because at the time I built it, it was. So, I'm going to have to figure out how to get it back to legal play status. Regardless, it's still a good deck. Oh. And speaking of R/B Demon/Ogre Handmaiming...http://www.mtgdeckbuilder.net/Decks/ViewDeck/despairdemise-298281 Enjoy that one too. :D

    So. This is where I will be sticking things I wrote. I used to have them up on deviant art, but I was concerned about some of DA's policies on submissions, so I took them down. I hope you all enjoy these small musings from the depths of my creative mind. EDIT: I feel I should note, my inspirations come from bands or songs I enjoy. Black Veil Brides, Blessed By A Broken Heart, Taking Dawn, Shinedown...just to name some of the bands I draw from. Sing Out (Your Heart)© CrimsonCrescendo Sing to me,A song from your heart.Make me feel,That your soul cries out. Cries out for that mercy,the same mercy you never showed.That same mercy,that you held over peoples heads.A lure for the outcasts,the sweet tease of notice. But I will not listen.I will not fall.I will not be silent.I will sing out my heart,rasie my voice like a beacon.So that all who hear,feel hope rise again. Sing out your heart,let your soul shine through,in every word,every note a clarion call.Calling forth hope,igniting the fires of the heart,and fanning the flames. We will not fall!We will not be silent!We will sing out our hearts!So that those who hear,will know without doubt!We are not outcasts,but brothers and sisters,friends and lovers,Compatriots, one and all! Hear our voices sing out!WE WILL RISE!
  5. Sticking around for now

    Well, due to a rather surprising public and private outcry of displeasure at my prospective absence, I've decided to linger about for now. I'll likely be more or less observing for a while though. Thanks to everyone that poked at me. It did help. ^.^
  6. Uh.. Hello..

    I'm older than every single one of you. XD I was born in '82. Anyway, welcome Serena! Hope you have good luck finding RPs to jump into.
  7. Leaving

    In light of some recent events, and some irreconcilable differences, I'm leaving the site. It's clear to me now, that I should have passed this place by. Thanks to everyone who did make me feel welcome. Unfortunately, there were some...others among you, whom I won't name here, that don't feel I belong here. And honestly, considering the massive post lengths here, I'm inclined to agree with them. I've been out of forum RP for too long to just jump right back into the multi-para part of the pool, and it was stupid of me to attempt it. Sorry to anyone that was looking to RP. I just can't ignore the drastic differences in skill any longer. It was nice to pretend for a while, and I'm grateful to those that showed me kindness. I hope you all enjoy yourselves, and I wish you all the best. See you.
  8. ...and it made me frown

    That feel when you realize you don't belong anywhere after all. v.v
  9. R Digimon Universe: Ignition Factor

    LOL It's fine. I can at least get a general idea of your character from that. I'll go ahead and post my characters here, for easy reference. Character: Xilthanas Roleplays He Is In: Digimon Universe: Ignition Factor Human World Name: Damien Sumeragi Age: 22 Tamer Guild: Knights of Ophanimon, Leader; Leader of the White Dragon Guard Team Knight Designation: Virtue Crest: Courage Description/Characteristics: He is around 6'0", 325lbs, though most of that weight is because of his 3 cybernetic limbs, both legs and his left arm. He has pale skin, blonde hair, violet eyes, and normally wears loose black leather pants, black tank top, combat boots, leather gloves, and a seven pointed star around his neck. He also has his utility belt which has various gadgets, tools and small weapons, as well as his modify cards and digivice. He wears a large sword on him, named Exodus. Exodus is taller than he is by a foot, and so he wears it at an angle across his back. Now that he is a knight of Ophanimon, he also has a suit of white half-plate armor, with Ophanimon's crest embossed in gold across the chest, bestowed upon him during his knighting ceremony. Background History: Leader of the Knights of Ophanimon, Xilthanas enjoyed a much deserved sense of accomplishment and happiness, once things had quieted down compared to his younger years. He is also the leader of the White Dragon guard team, based out of Ganymede city on Server continent. An evil monster, known as Tanaquil, nearly changed all of that. Changed nearly everything he knew about the digital world, really. Xilthanas never knew if Tanaquil had ever been human, but the monster wore a human's shape and face like someone wears a new coat, so it mattered little. He had lost his physical body long before Xilthanas had first encountered him, but he somehow remained as an infectious evil soul, taking over the lives of innocent people and using their bodies as vehicles for his evil. But that was nothing compared to the thing he called his digimon, a horrible monstrosity that kept itself shrouded in shadows and illusions. During a mission to track down the card form of the Digi-egg of Creation, Xilthanas and his White Dragons stumbled upon Tanaquil, who had also been searching for the card. His team never knew what hit them, it was over so quickly. They tried to put up a resistance, but all they managed to do was give Xilthanas enough time to get away and try to complete the mission, though he was so badly injured, it is nothing short of a miracle he made it back to Ganymede. The screams and cries of his friends as they were slowly, painfully taken apart chased him all the way back to the gates, even though he knew that they were long dead. The next thing he knew, he was waking up in a hospital in Ganymede, three of his limbs missing, with IVs running to each remnant and into his good arm. He only noticed Reina when he tried to lift his good hand and caused her to jump to wakefullness. After spending a few minutes hugging him and telling him how sorry she was, she explained to him what had happened while he was unconscious. The gate guards had found him, barely alive, his legs and arm maimed beyond recovery. After they stabilized him, they brought him to the hospital, where doctors had worked quickly to try and save him. They managed to keep him alive, but unless they did something to replace his missing limbs, he would likely remain in this bed...forever. Not willing to accept this fate, Xilthanas willingly agreed to an experimental procedure that would replace his missing limbs with digital world cybernetics. The only reason it was experimental though, was because it had never been tried on a tamer before. They had no idea what exactly would happen when they attached the cybernetics to his human body. He didn't care. Deep inside his heart, a burning hate and anger slowly began to grow from a small candle to a blazing inferno, a desire for vengence against the being that caused this. Tanaquil. He swore within his soul that he would hunt that monster down and destroy it, even if he died in the process. When the procedure was done, Xilthanas spent a few weeks getting used to his new legs and arm, testing to make sure they would stand up to what he needed to do. After recovering sufficiently to travel on his own, Xilthanas slipped from the hospital and stopped by his old flat in the city, opened a hidden compartment in the wall of his room, and grabbed the hidden stash of equipment that he had found during his previous missions. His outfitting done, Xilthanas made his way toward the gate, wanting to leave as quickly as he could, to hopefully prevent Tanaquil from heading to Ganymede. When he exited the city though, he came across a bearmon that was badly hurt, in almost the same way he had been, though the injuries weren't as severe as his had been. As Xilthanas looked down upon the frail digimon, his anger turned to self-less concern, stopping him in his tracks. The death of his partner still fresh in his mind, Xilthanas bent down and gently lifted the bearmon in his arms, then ran as fast as his new legs could carry him back to the hospital. Xilthanas spent the next few days staying with the bearmon, watching him heal and regain his strength, talking with him and telling him about his former friends and partner, letting the small digimon know that he had a friend and kindred spirit in Xilthanas. Once he had fully healed, Xilthanas and the bearmon walked side by side toward the city gate, originally intending to part ways. When they got there though, Xilthanas and the bearmon looked at one another, Xilthanas posing the question of, "do you want to be my partner?" When the bearmon nodded, Xilthanas asked if he had a name already. He wasn't suprised when the digimon shook his head, having already decided on a name as he asked the question. "Then I'll call you Stride." Digimon: Bearmon Name: Stride Roleplays He is In: Digimon Universe: Ignition Factor Type: Vaccine Planned Evolution: Bearmon-Grizzmon-Grapleomon-SabreLeomon Attacks: Bearmon-Bear fist, Bear roll; Grizzmon-Crescent Dawn, Volcanic Claw, Saintbeast Slash; Grapleomon-Cyclonic Kick, King of Fist, Lancing Blaze, Volcanic Strike; SabreLeomon-Twin Fang, Howling Crusher, Rending Plasma Defining attributes: Stride has a very chipper attitude, but he can be quick to anger, especially in defense of his friend and tamer Xilthanas. Instead of the normal baseball cap most of his species has, he has a black bandana with silver flames on his head, and his gloves and straps were made from black leather with silver studs. He also had a pair of combat boots, though the toes were sheared off so his claws were exposed. Background History: Like his tamer Xilthanas, Stride had wandered the digital world in search of an old nemesis, but instead found another friend to aid him in his quest. Their travels brought them back to the ruins of Ganymede, the city having been destroyed by Tanaquil a few years after he and Xilthanas had left. He found out during their long quest that the monster Xilthanas sought, and the one that had taken Stride's former tamer from him, were in fact one and the same. This only further cemented their bond as Tamer and Partner, and inspired Stride to dedicate himself to growing even stronger. To protect his new Tamer, his friends, and the whole of the digital world! Character: Starfall Digimon: Pagangemon (champion form, Original Alternate Angemon path) Rolplays He Is In: Digimon Universe: Ignition Factor Type: Data/Vaccine (Yes he is a hybrid. Will be explained in a moment.) Planned Evolution: Elvamon-Pagangemon-Oberomon-SacredSylvamon Description/History: Starfall is around 7', eight black feathered wings, midnight blue body suit, silver pentacles in place of the studs a normal angemon would have, black loincloth. His face is fully visible since he doesn't possess the normal helm that both Angemon and Angewomon wear, looking like something out of a bards song, with his flowing black hair, silver eyes, and sharply angled features. Starfall is what is considered a rebirthed digimon, one who had been digitized and then reassembled, though he was also reconfigured into an alternate form.Originally he was an Angemon, but due to a fatal encounter with Tanaquil, he 'died' and his data was scattered. Ophanimon found him because she had been flying along nearby a few days after it happened, his data screaming in grief to her ears. So she used her divine digimon abilities and reassembled him into what he is today. Attacks: Elvamon-Leaf blade, Star Beam; Pagangemon-Hand of the Stars, Luminous Volley, Ether Blade, Flare Slash, Gate of Destruction; Oberomon-Blade of Stars, Burning Sun, Lightning Wave, Astral Lance; SacredSylvamon-Photon Star, Inferno Crash, Light of Truth, Eternal Sylvan Destroyer Transcendic Digivolution: Pendragonmon (Combined form of Xilthanas, Starfall and Stride, Divine level digimon) Clad in shimmering mithril full plate, ten black feathered wings fanning from his back, silver hair reaching to just above his ankles, his head bare, finely boned features, black eyes that contain starscapes, holding a blade 18' long, two feet shy of his total height of 20'. Attacks: Phoenix Gate Transcendence, Catalytic Cannon, Aurora Blade, Saintbeast Slash, Gate of Destruction, Silver Star Storm, 7 Virtues Slash

  12. NC-17 Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters Discussion

    Better late than never! XD Civilian Name: Damien HaphestonHero Name: SilverflameAge: 18Affiliations: NonePowers: Pyro & Photokinesis (Fire & Light manipulation)Weapons: Mag-lite flashlightWeaknesses: Darkness. Personality: Confident, calm, precise, aloof at times. Knows how to get what he wants. Can be seen as arrogant by those outside his allies and friends. Chivalry is a big thing with him. Courage comes easy for him. Fear causes an interesting reaction in him, his instinctual response being one of hot anger rather than one of blind terror, striking out at whatever it was that threatened him. Short Bio: His powers flared into being because he fell victim to a villain whose powers were to cause deep shadows to coalesce around whatever they wished. This happened while he and his mother were at a bank near where they lived, the entire bank being held hostage while the villain went about their business of pillage and terror. Damien was terrified of the creeping darkness that he saw manifest around his neighbors, this terror only increasing as the darkness enfolded him next. He was barely covered for more than a few minutes before he felt something inside him...Ignite. It was like the sun had manifested in his chest, filling his world once more with warmth and light, his power bursting forth and driving away the villains shadows long enough for people to flee and the X-men to arrive, the heroes making short work of the villain. He was 14 at the time. Over the next four years, he trained extensively in secret, doing his best to cope with his new-found powers. Until his parents finally caught him practicing one night. That's when everything got thrown out of whack. His parents, of course, flipped out and immediately called Xavier's. For his own good, they told him. "It's better this way," his father said. Damien couldn't help but wonder if it truly was. Other Notes: The flashlight, with just a little help from his photokinesis, easily becomes a focused blade of searing light and heat. Also, the color of his fire is silver. He has no idea why its such an odd color. Being in a dark place for too long will start to make Damien fidget and sweat, soon followed by hugging himself as if cold. He will make his own light/fire if the need is great enough, but it takes a bit out of him. Its easier for him to use pre-existing sources of fire and light.
