I am looking for permission to play a demon-kin. That’s, ah… pretty much it.
Her demonic form differs in much the same way a commoner might think; goat-like horns sprout from behind her ears, a spear-headed tail snakes out from just above her trousers, her eyes glow faintly; a pair of large, black, bat-like wings emerge from her shoulder blades, her already long nails stretch and harden into claws, and her canines sharpen to fang-like points.
Permission granted. Feel free to make a character thread for her, and I'll give you her currency numbers.
I'd say that she should have an appearance consistent with the kind of demon-kin she is, like with her eye-color and stuff... but Scorp was the one in charge of deciding those details about succubi, and I'm not even sure we're holding to the whole idea of certain demon-kin having certain eye-colors, except in specific situations (like I know all Malice demon-kin have red eyes...)? So - this is fine.
Just a heads-up: I'm going to resume work on this now that I'll have internet for a while again. Those of you who are still working on/planning characters, please start doing so as soon as you can. It's no rush just yet, but I do plan to start this hopefully by next weekend at the latest.
I'm stuck on mobile for the time being, so apologies in advance if my messages sound terse.
Yo, Wolfy. Wanna make a duo? I think I'm gonna make a gruff half-dwarf dude so if I post him will you make a character to match, then I can edit accordingly?
I'm not really sure how that'd work out, since I'll also be DMing and controlling Caiden. But if you want to make a duo, you can; my rule is just that they don't spend too much time interacting exclusively with each other.
As for everyone else, I'll get back to you when I can.
Sounds good, Cappy! I do have a few comments, though:
The wind sent her bolt astray, and the cat was startled from its perch and ran around in confusion, only to slam into the nearest human leg, clinging to it and pleading for protection. The naive creature had no idea it had taken shelter with its would-be murderer, but luckily for him, Kate was now equally bewildered. ... The cat kept clinging to her leg all the way back to camp, despite a great deal of threats, bribes, shaking, and kicking.
Honestly, this sounds way more like a dog. Not saying that dogs are stupid, but they are the ones more likely to run up and cling to and trust a total stranger (if the cat knew her well and trusted her already, it'd be different). The cat would've just disappeared the very second she missed and she'd never have seen it again.
I do also feel the need to say that cats are much more perceptive than people give them credit for. But that's just nitpicks and comments. It's a story, after all.
As they feasted on filched plums, the two youngsters saw smoke emerging from the forest, in the direction of their house. Kate rarely speaks of what they found upon their return, though she takes great pleasure in recalling how she saw the orphan boy fleeing the scene, embers spouting in his wake, before she retrieved her father’s old crossbow and quiver from the smoldering house, to stop the magical perpetrator with a well-placed bolt. The boy’s pained cries for mercy fell on deaf ears, until another bolt between the eyes stopped them, too.
The only issue with this part is that mages are exceptionally hard to kill - even the youngest, because their magic naturally protects them. It's the instinctive and defensive lashing out that mages have to learn to control in order to blend in to society at all. And it'd be exactly that that would lash out at Kate - even if the magic didn't protect him from the first bolt because he was unaware of it, it would never have given her the chance to get close enough to shoot him in the head or let the second bolt through. That's one of the main reasons why the Inquisition is needed, as their void iron bolts would've pierced through any barriers or attacks the magic would have performed, and then killed the boy anyway.
If any of that made sense.
The carefree girl she once was died in magefire with her parents and her innocence...flames that still burn within her eyes.
Nothing. I just love this sentence.
