My friend bought me a Betty White t-shirt that asks "Who's your Betty?" on it, along with a Betty White 2012 calendar.

 

I don't really like Betty White, but I like that t-shirt and calendar.

 

If that counts.

I wrote my post under the influence of Skyrim's theme song… and the flu.

 

Nevertheless, happy New Year's Eve everyone! Go out and party if its not too cold. Stay in and get liquored up if it is.

 

HAPPY 2013 !!!

Just checking, but did you guys get permission to kill the Yeti? In the ooc at the end of the Yeti bit it says they are "absolutely not autokillable".

And Patches was simply ignored. :<

 

But, uh, no, I don't believe there was any indication that they could be killed. I dunno, I wasn't gonna post anything until Rogue posted a reaction from them or something. ._.

Ok. Finished reading the previous ooc. 

 

@ Rogue, concerning some of the questions you brought up about my character

I wish I could quote your post, but I can't. The thread is locked and tatati-tatata. 

First... I'm sorry for the gun. On the other hand, it is about as archaic as it gets. Its basically a hand cannon.

It's fairly preposterous. But also versatile. It also has, for the most part, an absolutely shitty aim and some serious kick.

Like the coffee she drinks.

It's more akin to a blunderbuss than modern ordonance. It also doubles as a grappling hook/harpoon gun. That shoots rather straight, actually.

Mostly because the projectile doesn't have any space to bounce around in the barrel.

It also takes a bit of time to reload. She can wing it, but since it involves explosive material, it can be a bit haphazard. In dire moments she may just stick some explosive mixture along with rocks or whatever is laying around. It may still rip your head off even if it isn't conventional artillery fare. 

 

As for the seeker tattoo, since your magic section is actually sketchy as hell (I mean, there isn't actually any info on how any of this stuff works), I am going thematically with it. 

Planet has several key characteristics, which are rather obvious.

She's a wanderer. It's in her name. An adventurer. Kino via Indiana Jones. Also with a touch of Nier (magic talking book instead of a talking motorcycle)

She is a storyteller. Ties in with the first one a bit. She is an avid collector of stories. She is particularly in love with the story of the Ancient Gods. 

This is also why I gave her a seeker tattoo. I found it thematically appropriate and intriguing to have a storyteller, a dashing lady of adventure to boot, to have her own life tattooed on her own body. What it actually does I have no idea. I also hope it might hold some punch since, let's face it, she's a bit of a lightweight compared to some of the other characters. 

But that's okay.

I wanted a character who was an adventurer, a scholar, a wanderer and a bit of a poet.

The other main aspect of her character is her own weird obsession with the aesthetic. That I picked from a book called The Secret History. My character is quite simply in love with the world. And with the past. She is deeply romantic. She rejects the Gaian creed because she feels it robs its followers of that feeling of being in the world. She also rather hypocritical about this mostly because as character goes, she is also quite absorbed in her own weird little fantasies. They are simply oriented at different things. She is both at home in the world and yet feels oppressed in it, mostly because she disagrees with the current trends (including universalism). She hopes to find complete contentment in restoring the old gods, synonymous with a lost golden age to her.

I did mention in the previous ooc that the gun is probably made by Zhao Ran, since he invented it lol. Thankfully, your description is pretty accurate as to what the Chinese hand cannons were like, me gusta mucho.

I am absolutely cool with that. 

This will make for an interesting piece of backstory or anecdote.

@Vaf
I didn't really have any issues with the char. I mentioned the gun like that more as a note for others so that it didn't become a thing.

As for the seeker tattoo I don't have an issue with you having it I just was looking for the story behind it's acquisition since I imagine it might impact future developments for your char and involve npcs I'd made to tie in with your char. As for the magic section I just wanted to make the foundations and framework and give you all room to fill in within that setup which people have been doing and I've sort of been setting up some rules and stories supporting it behind the scenes.


@All
I'm reading over posts now and probably will be throwing up reaction posts tomorrow. Nobody should of killed a Yeti or really have managed to do any actual damage beyond cosmetic at this point.
