  2. Japanese

    I've had a course Japanese in my first year studying animation about 5 years ago (how conciderate of them) but because it wasn't mandatory and on the final period of our Friday it wasn't very popular and was dropped by the second year. Still, I kept the books and know some of the speaking basics; introductions, basic phrases, counting to 100, some of the honorifics, how "something 'no' something" works and how important it is to present your business card correctly and respectfully one day I'll pick it up again and learn to read/write too, but it's low priority now. btw, coolest thing about Japanese class was being introduced to ghibli movies and Fairy tail, from time to time we could spend the last half hour of our 90 minute class to show something cool from Japan.
  3. I need some RP, and you.

    Good, we can approach this from 3 ways i think; setting, characters or plot. did you have any specific ideas you wanted to try out?
  4. I need some RP, and you.

    well, as I find myself in a similar situation I'll offer my help. Lets see if we can build something from scratch?
  5. Yeah I'm in the mood to make some RWBY characters here. I don’t have many ideas for an actual RP yet, it might even be just a retelling of the first volume with our own team. I hope others can help on that part while we make characters. Because there isn't that much known about the rules of the RWBY universe I'll set some guidelines based on what we do know. 1: characters in RWBY are (loosely) based on characters in literature or other fiction (mostly book character but there have been historical/mythological sources and I’ll allow TV and other media) I don’t mind newer characters like a Song of Ice and Fire character and you can veer pretty far from the source character (it is even encouraged). 2: all names (characters, teams and most likely even weapons) have to be based on a color, this can be the actual color in English or another language or it can be something associated with the color. (more info from the man himself) 3: you can go nuts with the weapons and Aura skills but the usual godmodding rules still apply and this is still based on the RWBY series so try not to stray too far from established lore. Also I'm a big supporter of work in progress posts and constructive criticism so you don’t have to make it perfect before posting here, I want this to be a discussion leading to at least some roleplay, it can even be just a short battle between characters. Let’s start this off with my RWBY character. Name: Jericho Corey Based on: Prince Corwin from “The Chronicles of Amber†books by Roger Zelazny & Major Thalric from “Shadows of the Apt†books by Adrian Tchaikovsky Race: Human Gender: Male Age: 17 Color Theme: Silver/Moonlight & Black Emblem: a silver burning V on black. General Appearance: A slender young man of slightly above average height. He has raven black hair about 3 inches long overall, a handsome face and distinct green eyes. He wears a smile nearly all the time. Although it is often genuine, you have to look at his eyes for any clues on his actual state of mind. He is deceptively strong and has a surprising amount of stamina and endurance. Clothing/Armour: Jericho prefers to wear a combination of t-shirts, jackets and jeans in various shades of grey black and white, with occasionally some print on his shirts. His armor consists of lightweight shin protectors and knee armour worn over his jeans, a lightweight metal banded chest piece with room at the shoulders to give him better maneuverability and two gauntlets. All his armor appears steel grey with silver accents on the edges. Personality: Jericho is a calm and respectable young man who is loyal to his comrades and treats even his adversaries/rivals with a friendly respect (although that would not stop him from completing his mission). Behind his polite nature Jericho holds a beast locked up that is his ambition and ruthlessness. He keeps a firm grip on his temper and ambitions and uses his deep wells of willpower to channel these stronger aspects of his personality in a proper course. Short Bio: These days Jericho hardly even recognizes the boy he was when he started training to become a huntsman; brash, stubborn, arrogant and filled with romanticized views of being a Huntsman of legend. Of course when he started his career at Haven academy it did not take long for him to be shot down by reality. Jericho had to face the fact that there were many students better than him. Although Jericho had a talent with swords he knew far less than he thought about being a huntsman. The first years were not easy for him, with his stubbornness and pride making sure he didn’t fit in with the other students. Only in the last months of his second year did he find a place at Haven; standing across from the star swordsman of Haven in The Circle. Jericho had always been a prideful young man and wasn’t shy about voicing his opinions, this sometimes would get into trouble but that did not mean much to him. Except when one day after he made a remark about Eric Bernstein, the top ranking member of the Haven academy duelling society 'The Circle'. Eric had wanted to knock some sense into Jericho and found a chance to humble the younger student in a duel. Jericho did not even last a minute against Eric. Afterwards Jericho would train and try to beat Eric in a rematch, only to be beaten again. It became a small routine at haven where every week or so Jericho would demand another rematch against Eric and Eric would comply, beating Jericho with little effort. However during this strange ritual of vengeance Jericho started to care less and less about his honour or pride and more about the duel itself, with every rematch he would last longer and learn better to defend against Eric’s style. At some point, and Jericho still can’t decide just when, he and Eric became friends and he found his place in The Circle. The following years Jericho would greatly improve both his social skills along with his combat skills. With the Circle he managed to find friends and grow out of the prideful petty child he was in his first years. A year ago, in his last year on Haven, Jericho and some other students were caught in a riot when returning from the city. A group of White Fang agitators had gotten some dust weapons in the Faunus rights protest and after they had started shooting the riot police intervened, causing panic and more violence. Jericho and the other students became cornered by a part of the mob and had to defend themselves. Jericho was the first into the fray and held his ground long enough for the other students to either get away or join him in holding their ground. The Faunus mob was quickly dispersed after the students stood their ground, but not without many injured on both sides, only Jericho seemed to come out of it untouched. Now Jericho has left the familiar halls of Haven behind him as he has been accepted at Beacon Academy to continue his training to become a Huntsman. Aura colour: Silver, although it shifts to a silvery-gold colour if he goes into his more ruthless survivalist mentality. Semblance: Soulbound Jericho's sword Wintermaan is bound to him and as long as he is in fighting condition he can summon the sword directly to his hand. Usually this is only noticed a moment later when someone notices that they never actually saw him draw his sword or that he even had it with him. For years Jericho has been trying to summon his revolver Dageraad in the same way; however he has not succeeded to this day. Weapons: Wintermaan: A Side-sword with a simple hilt and crossguard with a slight S shaped curve and a simple basket guard. A fine lined, curving pattern is etched in the blade but the design appears to be only a fragment of the full design. When Jericho summons Wintermaan to his hand the pattern glows faintly blue. Jericho has modified the hilt to hold a small dust cartridge to imbue the blade with a magical charge. Dageraad: A darkened steel and silver accented revolver (A customized version of the Avalon Armory Mk. 6 Dust Revolver) bearing the same curving pattern as Wintermaan on the barrel and frame. Instead of firing bullets it uses a dust charge and is capable of loading 6 different types of dust and to freely switch between the 6 cartridges. Jericho built Wintermaan to compliment his sword fighting with a one-handed ranged weapon. While the weapon is functional and very effective he is still is busy to improve the design. (Based on the Mateba model 6 Unica autorevolver) Combat Stats: (not sure if we should use this but i've seen charts used on other original RWBY characters) Speed: 5 Armor: 6 Ranged Weapons: 7 Melee Weapons: 7 Aura/Semblance: 9 Dust proficiency: 7 Combat style: (not sure on this one either, but it could be fun to make a synergy between characters) Jericho is a jack of all stats, although not as fast as others he has deep wells of endurance when it comes to his aura. Using his aura to enhance his armor and combat skills he can stay in the fight for extended periods without slowing down. He fights centralized, keeping the action focused on him, rather than on his target. He doesn’t move around the battlefield as fast as others, but is still agile enough to traverse the battlefield at his own pace. Although at first he practiced a traditional style of sword fighting, Jericho has developed his own style to make use of his semblance in combat. Because of his semblance Jericho can always make a surprise strike, this is only practical in a fight against other humans, like a duel. After his opening move, he proceeds to keep distance and let his enemy come to him, should they keep their distance as well then Jericho will distract them by throwing his sword (either aimed at them or away from the fight to draw the eye) allowing him to quickly draw his revolver and fire a few shots with both hands for accuracy. Against large groups of Grim Jericho has practiced throwing his sword accurately while surpressing larger groups with his revolver until they get within melee range.
  6. I apologise for my inactivity, a series of long days followed by a flu left me a bit behind on the events. for some reason i am not getting much activity on skype for the past 2 weeks so if you want to contact me you might have to do it more directly through PMs and this discussion. I am still willing to go on and fortunately I aleady intended Cirith to be a less active character, sort of like a Gandalf for the story. tomorow when I am hopefully feeling better I'll read through the new posts and get a post done. I got plenty of ideas for Cirith's personal story and his interactions with the others so lets do it.
  7. NC-17 War of the Millennium[OPEN]

    Cirith awaited Seyerna at the entrance to her encampment within the mountain, under the uneasy watch of the guards. After the first guard had done his part and relayed the message he returned with two more guards, all four had their swords at the ready and with a wary eye on the stranger. The five figures at the entrance spoke not a word, the dragon waited and the men watched. After standing at the entrance for a little while, Cirith could not remember how long, the leader of this rebellion emerged from her little kingdom in the mountain. She was the first demon Cirith had seen in person, and a remarkable example at that. Her eyes spoke of power, her body language spoke of control, of domination of the situation, and a small voice in the depths of Cirith’s mind warned against great danger, for this being was strong and as he was now Cirith could not be sure of his own safety when faced against a power like this. "I am Seyerna, and I hear you have a message for me." Cirith replied with a calm tone, preparing for her reaction when he would reach the bad news he was bringing. “Not long ago you sent out a call for aid, to join you in your battle against the queen Saori. Your message managed to reach our elders. After long consideration my Elder and the Elders of the other Lines have sent me here to inform you of their decision. I regret to inform you this but the Elders have decided not to aid your war. Although we understand your reasons for fighting, many of my kin would not risk leaving their lands while on our northern borders two kingdoms are preparing for war. You can expect maybe a few dragons to join your cause but I wouldn't count on it. My kin are-" Cirith heard a deafening crash from outside and the whole mountain shuddered violently under his feet. several soldiers stumbled or fell to their knees during the first shock. Cirith looked at his host, who was quickly back on her feet and already calling her soldiers with her as she went out to investigate a brief exchange of looks with Cirith told him enough and he followed her outside to investigate, the rest of his message could wait for now.

  9. NC-17 War of the Millennium[OPEN]

    A robed man walked down the mountain. Over a narrow path through rough terrain and past steep drops he went down the mountain. Towards the tunnels and the rebels who called this mountain their home. Although the entrance to the tunnels was hidden from sight there were other ways the man could find his destination. In this case the sense of power was enough. Within the mountain now resided a being with power and possessing power himself the man could use his arcane skill to find her. Rumors had been going around in the western reaches of the kingdom that a dragon had left its hold in the Burning coast and had flown westward. Although he had been seen crossing the narrow sea the reports of a city burning never came. People were mystified where the dragon had gone as it had not been seen for days, and yet the explanation was simple enough. Dragons have a keen sight and can fly at night without difficulty; the fact that they so rarely fly at night is because they never had needed to fly at night. And this morning, after days of travel, the dragon had landed high on the mountain that hid the rebels and as the first rays of light revealed the brilliance of his copper scales and vermillion red wings the dragon crawled out of sight, a few moments later a robed man began his descend down the mountain. As the man in his gold and red robes reached the edge of the woods on the mountain slopes he found another path leading further east towards the entrance of the tunnels. This path had been used more recently and more often from the looks of the tracks. No doubt they had patrols that would keep an eye on the entrance of their base and the forest beneath. If a patrol would come they would see a man with a pale complexion and with the jet black hair reaching past his shoulders. Clad in the scarlet and gold of a pyromancer, and wielding a staff like a wise man from Soron, an appearance worthy to hide a dragon. The reason he took on this disguise was both for the practicality of the size and for discretion. He did not doubt the reaction of the rebels would be amusing if he appeared before them in all his majesty and power, but it would also complicate his tasks when they would become hostile. And if rumors of a dragon sighted on Voltus would reach the capital there would be dire consequences indeed. Although he knew where to start looking for the rebel base it still took him a while to reach the entrance. In the rugged terrain of mossy rocks a lot could be hidden from sight. However from here the smell of man was easy to track, and soon he found the opening. At the entrance two guards held watch and began with the ritual of their trade as usual. That’s far enough! Who are you? Why have you come here?†one of the soldiers called out to him. The two held their bows at the ready, suspicious of this stranger who had come from not from the forest below but from the mountain. With a calm tone the dragon in disguise responded. “I wish to speak with the one called Seyerna, you will find her and you tell her Cirith has come to deliver a message†In that moment when he spoke his true name a whisper went through Cirith's disguise, and for the briefest moment an amber eye too big to belong to the man standing before them looked back at them. It sent a shiver through the two and they complied. Normally the man would have denied he had even heard of Seyerna, the two soldiers would have captured this stranger who had found their secret hideout. Although they did not realize why, they were on some level aware of the danger if they refused this man. They exchanged a hesitatant look at each other and one of them hurriedly went inside to find Seyerna, still thinking he saw something very dangerous in that stranger, but never remembering what.
  10. Red's Scraps and Archive

    Ok, it took me a bit longer than i had wanted but here's my character. Name: Cirith Species: Dragon Gender: Male Appearance: A dragon with copper red and gold scales, with large wings and two legs and a long serpent like body. His wings span reaches 20 meters when fully stretched and from head to tail he is 25 meters long. (Based on Smaug's design from the hobbit) Personality: Like most dragons, Cirith is a proud and noble creature, but also greedy with a love for rare gemstones or precious metals. However Unlike his kin, Cirith is also patient and calculating. He tends to plan his hunts in advance and learns the weaknesses and strengths of his foe. Strengths/Abilities: As you would expect from a dragon, Cirith has a powerful claws and deadly teeth. Sharper senses than most mortal creatures. His hide is harder than armour and his wings are strong enough to make trees creak. With every beat of his wings he sends a wave of hot, dry wind and his fire has been the end of many humans brave and foolish enough to challenge him. He also has some magical ability, however not on the level of a skilled elven or human magician. most of his magical power lies in the telepathic link he can make with other dragons and his control over fire. Human form: A magical technique seldom used, a dragon can take the appearance of a human. when Cirith uses this ability he takes the appearance of a lean tall man in his early thirties, wearing gold and red robes, with a handsome face and long black hair slicked back. although his physical abilities are limited in this form Cirith can still use some of his magical power to control fire. History: Born in the ruins of a human made castle on a peninsula now called The Dragon Coast Cirith was raised amongst his kin for years as he grew and learned the lessons from his mother and his history from his father. When he got older he left his father’s domain and had to find his own place in the realm. From time to time the lands bordering the realm of dragons are attacked by adolescent dragons who try to carve out their own domain. Some remain in these lands and expand the reach of the dragon realm, others fail and either flee their claim in shame or die by the blade of a hero. Cirith was crafty however and instead of seeking out a rich land or a powerful kingdom to sack he chose for a strategically placed peninsula Over the years Cirith defended his new home and managed to gather a small hoard of his own; Trophies from battle, treasures from human cities or even the odd armour of a knight who fell against him. Cirith grew in name thanks to his patient planning of his goals. In his search for unique treasure he would wander the lands, concealed as a wandering human sorcerer, and learn the weaknesses of his target. This behavior did not go unnoticed amongst his kin and although they found it odd how careful Cirith acted they could not argue with the results. It was for his patient nature that Cirith was selected to represent the dragon clans of the Dragon Coast and Burning Isles. His official task is to convey the neutrality of the dragons in this attempted rebellion, however unbeknownst to his kin and the representatives he also has a secret task laid upon him by his patriarch…
  11. oooh, I was going to have the dragons be difficult towards humans for being little upstarts trying to take dragon lands but this could give for some real fireworks... I wonder how it will all play out.

  13. Zombie Apocalypse Weapon of Choice

    *looks to his left* ... Well at least i can have a peanut butter sandwich before i join the hordes of the undead... so close to the X-acto knife too.
  14. This certainly got me interested. I have a few ideas, including a dragon and a Marid (type of genie), but I'll try to contact you on skype or something to discuss the details.
  15. POKEMON

    So? anyone still playing X or Y? I'm keeping myself busy with preparing for a 'new game plus' reset by recreating my RP character team I got a mudkip and a ralts ready with good IVs, a spare speedboost torchic and now I just need a decent magnemite, drilfoon, and bagon. As a result of this I got some spare Mudkips from trying to IVbreed so I can trade a few if people want them.
