Role Play Details

  • Favorite RP Genre
    Fandom roleplays--especially Yuugiou--are what I'm doing right now. I lend myself to action/adventure stories or scenarios where there's plenty of character interaction/growth to be had as well
  • Role Playing Style
    I'm an extremely literate roleplayer and usually write at least 2-3 paragraphs. However, I tend to be a bit slower with replies
  • Favorite Character
    Several, actually, including Yami Marik and Pharaoh Atem, and my OC Yuki

    No, my handle's changed a few times since then. I think was under....Norimar? I can't remember exactly, but I think that's right
  2. Shanedan!

    Ah, thank you all~ It's been so long since I was on S*T--although, it's not really called that anymore, is it? Pft, shows how long I've been gone. Gotta admit, though, I've missed some good ol' forum-style roleplay as opposed to Tumblr or Facebook rp--it's almost impossible to easily keep track of roleplays on either in an organized fashion!

  4. And so is the Golden City blackenedWith each step you take in my Hall.Marvel at perfection, for it is fleeting.You have brought Sin to HeavenAnd doom upon all the world. They say that it's our fault, that it's because of us these monsters have appeared. It seems like everywhere you go, the peasants and slaves have renewed boldness, spitting and cursing our presence regardless of consequences. They threaten to rebel, emboldened by their preoccupied masters' lack of focus--already Emerius has shed blood in its streets, quieting the protests. But with its leadership in disarray, too preoccupied with rumors of a weakening Archon, a new prospect of power, the commonfolk will not stay quiet. The Imperium is already weak, this endless century-long war having weathered the foundations on which we once stood. You'd think that those responsible for upholding our grand kingdom would take more action to put an end to this 'Blight', but instead the fools sit and squabble amongst themselves, playing their hands conservatively to protect their holds and properties. Some even incite more carnage, using the blood that has been spilled to fuel their snatches at more power. Thedas is already going to hell in a handbasket--who can get dragged down with the most to their name? Idiots, all of them. It doesn't matter who did what or why, all that matters is these . . . darkspawn must be stopped. Horrifying, vile creatures that taint everything they touch--even dragons! For the past one hundred years, one High Dragon, twisted and terrifying, has been seen . . . rallying these monsters, like a leader of some kind. Some people think that it is one of our beloved Gods, tainted to reveal His true nature by humanity's sins. I doubt that, and it doesn't really make a damned difference anyway, does it? Nor will we, as long as people expect the magisters to do something. The world is crumbling, the Imperium is falling apart, and all anyone can seem to do is curl up in a corner and cower. Even the stout and valorous dwarves of Kal-Sharok have withdrawn--although that's hardly their fault, since these creatures supposedly came from underground. Minrathous still stands, at least, but that's hardly saying anything, given it won't stand for much longer if this continues. Sure, we've managed some victories, kept some cities and outposts from being utterly ransacked, but the people are changed. Some wind up tainted, perhaps as an effect of the darkspawn as the rumors go, and become ghoulish and mad--leaving someone the sad choice of putting the miserable creature down. No more. This Blight--as people have been calling it--must be stopped. Gods, dragons, magic, Fade, demons--whatever the source does not truly matter, and speculation and blame do not stop the fact that it is a disease that is destroying us. I will no longer wait for others to take action--it's high time someone took matters into their own hands, and that someone may as well be me. Moral Grey It's been almost a century since the Blight began, marked by the rise of a twisted Dragon people have taken to calling an Archdemon, and the world has slowly fallen into chaos as creatures known as the darkspawn ravage the lands. No one's certain where the darkspawn came from or what this 'Archdemon' really is, or even how to destroy them, for while the darkspawn fall easily enough to metal and magic, the Archdemon seems nigh immortal. With an immortal creature leading a horde apparently set on destroying Thedas, the people are thrown into a panic, and at the heart of the chaos is the Tevinter Imperium. Once a powerful kingdom ruled by blood magic that stood upon the backs of elvhen slaves, the Archdemon and its monstrous army are no doubt herald of its impending fall. Not only do slaves and peasants rebel as the darkspawn lay siege to the Imperium, the Imperium also suffers from within as magisters threaten civil war. Some wish to topple their incompetent Archon and claim the rule for themselves, others use the chaos to further their own agendas and try to 'settle' old disputes, and the rest who pledge their forces to fight the darkspawn are simply too few. But to the east, in the port-city of Qarinus where the darkspawn assaults are fewer, rumors of a strange woman looking for aid circulate. The past several weeks, as the locals will tell you, she has been going around, asking for volunteers to aid her in defeating the Blight. She claims to know a way to put a stop to it, and demands only that those who would help her be strong in their convictions. Be they slaves, Soporati, Laetans, even rebels--she calls for aid from all. But does she really know how to stop the Blight? And how can one small group possibly hope to change the world? ------------ Setting: The Tevinter Imperium, approx. -302TE (fall) Regions include Seheron, Anderfels, Antiva, and Tevinter Map of Thedas (large file) Races: Humans, elves, dwarves All classes and most specializations are permissible Elf-blooded are fairly common, though frowned upon. Dwarf-blooded are rarer, but not unheard of. Dwarves are also more virile than in Origins. Kossith not yet discovered--had one settlement in the Korcari Wilds before being wiped out during the Blight. Alamarri, Clayne, Chasind, and Avvar tribes exist Worship of the Old Gods is in rapid decline, and practitioners are met with mixed reactions. Chantry has not yet been founded, and thus templars do not exist. Circles do, though. Elves have no claim to the Dales and thus there are no Dalish elves, meaning there are no Keepers. However, renegade elves free from slavery do exist Blood magic is prevalent almost everywhere. Most, if not all mages, at least know the basics. Reavers are also fairly common. Somniari exist, albeit still rare. Their association with Archon Thalsian and thus the Old Gods have increased hostility towards them, in some cases even resulting in purging. Most, though not all thaigs have fallen. Kal-Sharok maintains minimal contact with the surface. Legion of the Dead is not yet founded. This is an idea I've had in my head for awhile now, and that I've been dying to play out. I originally intended to play it out as a story for the tabletop DA game, but I couldn't get my hands on the books I needed and then later moved to an area where tabletop gaming is virtually unheard of (the horror!). However, I still think the story has great potential, and would love to roleplay it out in one form or another, so I figure why not roleplay it here? Anyone is welcome to join, even if you haven't played the games, and I'm more than happy to provide information wherever needed. Most of the info here is based on heavy research into the otherwise minimal descriptions of Dragon Age history, and as such is taken with a lot of liberties. I believe most of it is accurate, although if someone else equally familiar with Thedosian history would like to provide advice and corrections where they're needed, it's certainly not unwelcome. Given that this is set during a time period not officially expanded on in-canon, there will be plenty of room to flex ideas--after all, given Thedas' history, much knowledge of magic, Arlathan, dwarves, the thaigs, and so much more was lost, especially after the fall of the Imperium. And since this takes place while the Imperium still retains far more power than the Imperium in Origins, it is safe to assume that much more knowledge is still to be had. The primary plot of this roleplay will be centered around founding the Grey Wardens, with plenty of bumps along the road, of course. Expect there to be plenty of magic, demons, Fade wandering (because what DA story is complete without at least one trip into the Fade), political strife, intrigue, and of course plenty of darkspawn waiting to have blades sunken into them!

And action. I'm not at all fond of realistic settings that have no supernatural or fantasy element, though I do enjoy settings like those of Dragon Age or Sleepy Hollow (TV series).

  7. Aspects of the Soul

    YUKI SHINOHARA "You know what they say about playing with fire, and baby, I'll leave you in ashes." Gender: Male (cisgender) Race: Human Date of Birth: April 8, 1988 Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5’5†(~165cm) Weight: 109lbs (49.5kg) Blood Type: B+ Western Zodiac: Aries Chinese Zodiac (year): Dragon Element: Fire Occupation: Illuminati Magus --------------------------------- Skills --Prolific with fire magic. --Agile, quick reactions --Prefers the use of dual athames to guns; has some formal gun training --Capable of utilizing portal magic, though very unskilled at it --Used to taking a beating here and there --------------------------------- General Appearance child -- adult -- faceclaim1 -- faceclaim2 -- old/alternate design Yuki acts like a rebel without a cause, and you can be certain he dresses the part. With worn-out jeans, combat boots, vintage tees, and leather accessories of every shape and size, he looks like he just stepped out of the 90s and didn’t give enough of a shit to update his style. Or to get new clothes, for that matter. Every article of clothing he owns is torn, stained, or otherwise damaged in some way, and any new clothes soon become just as ruined. Of course, as a magus assigned to corralling rogue demons and just as often sent dungeon-diving artifacts, his clothes aren’t purchased so much for appearance as practicality. For that matter, neither are any of his accessories. Though they may seem like flashy trinkets, many of Yuki’s various bracelets, belts, rings, and earrings each serves a significant purpose. Silver is the metal of protection and purity, and tiger’s eye is its gemstone equivalent, while bloodstones and amber promote power and focus. And their designs are no pop culture coincidence, either, with plenty of dragons to focus his fire spells, and various “occult†symbols such as ankhs for their respective blessings. Every piece he owns is not only symbolic in some way, but also expensive and clearly well-cared for in contrast with his wardrobe. Also well-cared for is his general appearance. In spite of its messy, unbrushed look, Yuki is a stickler for maintaining his hair—partially because it’s dyed black, instead of showcasing his natural chestnut brown. He generally prefers to cut it himself, trimming it about once every week to two weeks as part of his morning routine, and shaves every other day. Generally, he avoids growing out a beard and keeps his hair fairly short, with the exception of some impressive sideburns. This nitpicky grooming extends to his nails, skin, and teeth as well, and he uses a variety of products to keep his skin and nails at their peak. Many would never know it, but part of the reason is because Yuki has keratosis pilaris—a genetic skin condition that causes the body to produce excess dead skin cells, which clot pores and hair follicles and leads to numerous tiny, red bumps. It appears prominently on the arms and thighs, and can be agitated by dry weather, excessively hot showers, and other similar factors, and can also be attributed to persistent acne. And against his pale skin, those bumps stand out like beacons. It’s a constant source of anxiety for him, and he worries almost obsessively over whether or not the bumps are noticeable. Fortunately for him, the condition is pretty well-maintained, and the bumps are all but indiscernible. They do crop up during the drier seasons, though, appearing as sparsely scattered pinkish bumps over his upper arms and back. These bumps are not the only markings in his flesh, though they are his most anxiety-inducing ones. Thanks to his job, Yuki has several scars here and there, though most of them are faded with time. He has plenty to show off, but his most memorable ones are actually the result of incidents outside of his job as an Illuminati magus. Small, nearly invisible lines on the inside of his left arm mark his troubled past, some looking like they were deep enough to barely miss vital vessels. Another, less conspicuous one surrounds the front of his neck in a ragged, almost burn-like semi-circle, just beneath his chin, which he covers constantly with assorted collars and scarves. Another stands out more obviously on his left cheek, which he doesn’t really attempt to cover up, and his right shoulder hosts about six or seven random scars from where he got into a fight and fell on some broken glass in the process. But for all of his misadventures, Yuki always seems to bounce right back, never letting his lively spark leave his electric blue eyes, and giving an illusion of nigh endless stamina. Of course, being the adventurous bundle of trouble he is, and as a magus, it really doesn’t come as a surprise. Training both his magic and his martial skills on a regular basis helps Yuki to keep in top shape, and also to add some definition to his already girlish waistline—not to mention the boost it gives him to counterbalance his height. It’s not exactly a sore point, but when combined with his effeminate waistline and his broader hips, back when he used to wear his hair long, he did occasionally get mistaken for a girl from behind. But from the front, with his thick, bushy brows and prominent, square jawline, calling Yuki a girl is something only people with their beer goggles dialed up to nine do. Sure, he may have his mother’s droopy, big baby eyes, and her soft, small mouth, but his heavy brow, quasi-aquiline nose, and jutting chin were clearly taken from his dad. Sometimes, though, even though he isn’t really into the idea all that much, he likes to employ his younger sister’s help in accentuating his more effeminate features and prance around town in her wardrobe, generally for the sake of a few good laughs. --------------------------------- Weapons :- Armour :- Accessories :- Other :- --------------------------------- Personality There’s a lot to say about Yuki’s personality—too much, almost, to fit into a single section or summary. Driven by strong and passionate feelings true to his element, Yuki is a bundle of energy and emotion ready to ignite everything around him—for better or for worse. There is little restraint when it comes to his heart, and he has a tendency to leave people either warmed or scorched by his words with no in-between. Coupled with an unapologetic and stubborn nature, his volatile personality has gotten him into more trouble than he cares to recall, and his frequent conflicts with others has shaped him into an individual who values strength of bonds over quantity. But though these are noble enough traits to be had, Yuki is somewhat notorious for his lack of commitment to others. He never stays with any one group for long, frequently bouncing between people, and tends to leave friends and acquaintances behind if they can’t keep up. But with those whom he has developed a close bond, he’s as warm and welcoming as a homely hearth—a love and warmth that remains constant, like a second home. This warmth, of course, extends to his family, particularly to his four younger siblings. Having been raised by a single mother in impoverished conditions, there are few bonds Yuki has that can compare, even in the face of their frequent disputes. As the oldest, he takes it upon himself to act as “man of the house†and worries constantly over the welfare of his family, sometimes even coming across as smothering or overbearing. He means well, of course, but his inner nurturer can overwhelm at times. As can his pride. Yuki is a mage without peer, and he knows it. And just like his emotional overflow, his arrogance gets him into plenty of trouble. Though, as far as he’s concerned, it’s not that his head’s getting too big—it’s just yours is too small to accept the facts. And he will go out of his way to make his point in the most dramatic and impressive way possible. He simply loves all things theatric and unique, a trait reflected by his wardrobe, and finds himself drawn to high-energy individuals with interesting tastes. Honestly, though, if it’s pierced, dyed, tattooed, ostentatiously punk/scene/goth/some-derivative-thereof, or otherwise against the norm, he’s drawn to it like a moth. And he’s not afraid to go after exactly what it is he wants. It is only a small portion of the many nuances of his personality and interests, but these are some of Yuki’s more prominent traits. Honestly, I could go on for another two or three thousand words describing everything, but where would the fun be in that? --------------------------------- History It was a quiet, peaceful afternoon on which Natalie Johnson gave birth to a healthy baby boy, crowning him Gabriel Martin Johnson for his maternal and paternal grandfathers, respectively, and he was raised in a happy, ordinary home by his single mother. She remarried --------------------------------- Anything Else:

    Actually, this isn't so much an introduction as a proclamation of return, but I'm glad to be back! My computer's been broken for awhile, but now it is finally fixed~ At least until I can get a replacement for the old dinosaur, eugh. Although, at seven+ years old, I'm just glad it runs.
