Sorry Captain, I directed Sharky to come here and jump in... Since we don't yet have a visitor's thread.
Speaking of which, I'll go make one now.

Captain, do you need me to post an action now? Or am I waiting on you to see what the rolls did? I'm not sure I understand what the symbols mean...

New Player: Sharky

So far we have
Dawn: Field Marshal / Sword Prince : Melee
Zenith: Warrior Monk / Sorcerer : MA
Twilight: Crafty Monk / Lore Master : MA
Night: Merchant Prince / Assassin : MA


What we need:
RANGE!!!!!! (Bows are great! Flame Pistols have less range than just about anything else that has range! Also, Flame+City = Bad!)
CHARISMA! (While the Night has social skills, he is manipulation based, and meant for the more underhanded side of life and not for giving rousing speeches and such.)

Oh, and I insist on every character having a minimum of 1 dot in stealth!

Oh no, another role player! Role players are awful. They look funny, have odd senses of humor, and are online all the time. I vote no more players! Let's all leave and join sports teams!

(ie. I'm fine with Sharky joining)

I can go with the alchemist concept, that could somehow make me pick up bows.
Yet without the investment in strength its going to be funny at best so a skinny professor needs to grow some serious muscle, and find the time to have picked up archery as some mayor hobby or necessity.
I definitely dont mind growing into archery.
As I said I want to master all ranged combat.

I never quite saw eclipse and archery go hand in hand easily, they always work with their hands.

It still brings up what times you guys usually play and how Im going to fit into it.
I can look up what times you post but this is a fresh game.

How long what days what times, just need to know the intensity of play so I can fit.

As far as I can tell its not so time bound.
OKay sorry for the confusion just needed to get a general idea lots of stuff to absorb this fast.

OK let's back the crazy train up about 6 or 7 million stops shall we? First off all 4 players have voted in favor of Sharky joining the game, so WELCOME SHARKY! Second, Sharky you are aware that none of the players have exalted yet correct? Third, I have seen minimal effort to confer WITH the other players in your character development (that's bad voodoo mon). Last, Please for the sake of my sanity clean up your character sheet so as to make it more quick reference friendly, please refer to the other players' character threads for formating.

On another tangential note you will need to add reasoning or possible reasoning for how you have arrived in Jades to your story.

As for posting frequency there is no set time we post as there are a few of us who live in different time zones how ever you are expected to post AT LEAST once every two days. more frequently helps progress the story just don't go over board.

Final note: PLEASE DO NOT POST IN THE STORY UNTIL I HAVE APPROVED YOUR CHARACTER!!!!

Erm, I actually did not 'accept' Sharky, sorry for the confusion. I did give suggestions on what kind of character skills/abilities would be the most beneficial to the party.

I would certainly like to see much improvement in his posts. IC posts need to be neat, clear, and make reasonable sense.

No offense to anybody is intended, just my wishes for ALL players in the game.

Actually, I agree with Thanos here. Sharky, and I mean this in the most constructive way possible, much of your writing is hard to understand. If I may suggest having someone else proofread them first?

Leopard is a professional mercenary, and has been for years. You don't hire the likes of him for his good looks or easy going personality.

Besides, I enjoy characters with rough edges.

Yeah, see, I just thought you were being snarky about out-of-character posting time.

Thanos just OOC FYI I'm not trying to be an ass an ST just the Corporal is a bit of a snob/elitist due to being a professional soldier not just one of the many mercs running around town (inspired by a book i'm reading sorry they tend to bleed into my DM/GM/ST roles).

I have no problems. If I did, you would certainly have gotten a PM from me. I don't hold back unless your one of our fighting troops overseas...then I bend over backwords to try and have fun!


EDIT IN:

If Sharky is going to join, then his character is NOT an Eclipse through any means of the imagination. I would be willing to alter my character from Night to Eclipse with a change from Manipulation being a 4 to Charisma being a 5. Almost all of the 'roll' I have made already can be retconned to use Charisma without much issue. I am not convinced I would change any charms, being stealthy is always a nice thing to fall back on! Especially if you just can not be caught somewhere!

If I did change the charms they would almost certainly be into Presence charms or Beauro charms.

Hey Captain, my Captain, I'm sure you stated, but where did you state that we had not yet exalted?

Many many posts ago in a land called Character Acquisition a captain named Gavis imagined a land wherein 5 mortals were about to ascend to godhood yet had not already and thus was where the story was intended to begin.

I'm jones'n, but my character is stuck doing a dramatic action, so it may take a bit before my next action.

I am not quiet sure what you mean by that. Generally the reason Twilight and Eclipse go with ranged/sorcery is because their base skills are not all that great for combat. Dodge, Resistance, and Melee/MA are the main methods of not taking damage and the T/E Castes got none of that as favored to start off with. Characters that are not front line material, but that still want to make a contribution in a fight (outside of taking damage and becoming a liability) need to engage the enemy at range. By, at range, I am also suggesting that it take more than a full action to get to the range user, allowing the front line characters to at least try and protect the people 'in-the-back'. That means that most thrown weapons used at full dice are not 'ranged'. Using thrown weapons is for highly mobile dodge based characters, IMHO.

Thrown has some great charms and great combo possibilities the likes of which Melee and Archery do not have. If you go down the road of thrown you either go MA with Air Form to get the Chakrum bonus of doom or straight dodge stuff.

I said I wanted to grow into ranged, and master ranged combat as a field.
Just because I like firewands doesnt mean I cant do anything else, I havent had that much time to post.
Ive posted my character and you have not commented there, any constructive help would be appreciated.

The story I made reads as a self revealing story, its not clear cut for that reason.
The name he yells is the the offspring of adorjan that rages through malfeas consuming all that is made of stone.
It is meant to be enigmatic.

No indication of how to weave into the story, captain gavin expressed interest into how I would play out my character with the slave background I did.
I already stated I dont have that much experience, I dont understand why its suddenly like I havent said this.

Anyway, Ill look into some changes tomorrow been having a very busy 2 days.

I understand the need for range and charisma but help me out then, I had a pretty fixed idea of a character and Im drawing a mayor blank as to how to give any adequate excuse to know how to use a bow let alone have decent strenght to use it.
Charisma might be manageable but think about how physically intensive archery is and also how much you sacrifice on that not to mention an eclipse his main attributes.
I mean if social is secondary or primary which does one make tertiary?? mental or physical.
If you want to help me how not to fail spec plz give suggestions.
I cant make a character with 1 in all social accept charisma and make everyone go "Ewwww such a nice guy but his face..."
Help me fit it into the slave concept or Ill have to remodel.

I thought so, just couldn't find it in the game forum was all.

I really wasn't expecting such individual drama targeted at my character so soon. "You are the key." "Search within yourself for the answer." I can taste my exaltation. - Wait, maybe it has something to do with that painting of Jupiter that I'll need to sacrifice to activate my sorcery?
