  1. She'll probably consider him to be like a brother as they get closer, but it would be interesting to see them come to realize in the future that they were both orphaned and maybe develop more romantic feelings. She's still a baby though, so we'll have to wait and see. happy.gif

  2. Ranu's eyes widened. Had Liger cured her? He did smell rather...ashy, and she didn't feel like coughing anymore, so perhaps he knew what he was doing. She was surprised though by how fast he did it and without hesitation. She didn't even seem to acknowledge that their tails were entwined which was a telltale sign that they trusted each other. But still, it felt strange for him to be so close to her so suddenly so she unwound her tail from his and looked away, as if embarrassed.


  3. Crusher smirked at Cetn's amusement and said "I'll be outside if you need anything." before exiting the cave with Mihari following behind. That left Cetn with Irah who was also focused on the mana shard. "It's beautiful, isn't it?" she commented, assuming that he was also admiring it. "Apparently, there's a lot more of them in this mountain, but I haven't gone that far down." Irah then looked up at the crystals on the roof. They were nowhere near as bright and magical as the mana shard, but she still saw the beauty in them. "Yeah... I'm going to miss this place."

     

    Quinn came up to Irah and tapped a claw on her shoulder. The sudden contact with her cold scales made Irah jump a little and look behind her. "Oh... It's you." said Irah, sounding unimpressed. Turning back to Cetn she said "This is my friend, Quinn. She doesn't talk much, but lately she's been a little more friendly than usual."

    The small blue hatchling sat beside Irah and directed her gaze at the mana shard without saying a word. The scales on her back were shiny and white with her most notable feature being the two gold stubs on her head that forked slightly.

    Ranu decided that now was a good time to rest and closed her eyes when Liger nuzzled her, but she then coughed, which startled her and she immediately put both front feet over her mouth. She looked up at Liger worriedly, not knowing what it meant. Was she getting sick?

     

    ((I have a feeling she's going to expect him to look after her. laugh.gif I'll probably add more to this later if no one replies since it's so brief. Edit: Aaaand we're good!))


  4. Alright, glad I could help. I'm probably going to have to sacrifice a character or 2 because there's no way I can keep up with 5 (or 6 if you count Quinn, but she's more of a background character who I only RP once in a while). Too many people have quit in a short amount of time. sleep.gif

  5. XoeJane told me that she was in Alaska but returned a few days ago so I don't know why she isn't posting.

    I also don't mind it being just the two of us, but I think it would be even better if Little Lost Dragon was in as well... I don't know when he'll return though if ever which is too bad because he's one of the few people on DC who won't disappear without saying something.


  6. ((I forgot to post... weird.))

     

    Ranu backed away and cocked her head to one side when Liger told her to stop. She then stretched her front legs out and rested her head on Artemis's mane, staring at Liger with big playful eyes. She was clearly comfortable with Liger and was happy to be accompanied by another hatchling.

    "Oh yeah, he's got lots of books. He found most of them further down in this cave." replied Irah, happy to talk about her father's interests. "They're mostly about magic spells and animals that live on the mountain. I think someone went to the trouble of studying them."

    Crusher then came out of his chamber with a brown satchel around his neck. Had he taken longer, Irah surely would've rambled on. "Here, take this." said Crusher as he used his telekinesis to lift an Ice mana crystal out of his satchel and placed it in front Cetn. "Mihari has been collecting these. It should give you enough energy before we stop to rest for the night."


  7. Cheese, Papers, and dinos fall under joke, my apologies for the confusion. Perhaps "joke" isn't the correct word.

     

    I don't think you need to completely revise it. For example, he could still be raised by a wizard who granted him with the ability to shapeshift, and his personality could mostly remain the same minus how easily weakened he is by stormy weather. But like I said, me and Little Lost Dragon might be willing to compromise if your dead set on RPing a Paper. Plus, I only consider it a waste of time when people show interest and then only post a few times before disappearing, but we're just getting started. smile.gif


  8. I think so? Not quite sure what you mean by "older self" seeing as Crusher used to be evil.

     

    Username: DarkDagger

    Name: Flynn

    Gender: Nope

    Type/Breed:  Paper Dragon

    Power: Can change appearance somewhat. Which is to say, Flynn's colors will be altered upon touching something that can stain paper. If spare parchment is located, Flynn can also absorb it in order to change shape.

    Personality: Flynn is adventurous, but only to an extent. They love flying and seeing different parts of the world, but this tendency to explore is hampered by the fact that they cannot travel in bad weather. Wind blows them around like a kite and rain makes it entirely impossible to fly; they will become soggy and lethargic until dry. For the most part, Flynn is solitary and will become wary around others. They do not like fire-breathing breeds at all. If another dragon can gain their trust, however, Flynn is a loyal ally.

    Appearance: Like most Papers, Flynn is small and very light; a moderately strong breeze could knock them over. Their appearance varies thanks to their power, but normally they are a pale beige color. Despite Flynn's shapeshifting, there are always distinct black splotches covering their wings, which look suspiciously like spilled ink.

    Age/Stage: Mature Hatchling (44 years)

    History: Flynn came into existence when a young human sorcerer's experiment went wrong. A piece of parchment was struck with a stray blast of magic, and amidst all the chaos, Flynn scampered away unnoticed. They lived a quiet, uneventful, nomadic life prior to encountering this group of hatchlings.

    Extra: n/a

    I don't think this is going to work seeing as Papers are on the list of dragons that aren't allowed, but if you really want to RP a Paper dragon then maybe we can work something out.

     

    And this isn't that important, but we don't use the age conversion made by Sharlykng. Mature hatchlings are 4 to 10 years old.


  9. "Good. I'll explain soon, but we need to get going." Crusher said with urgency. He looked down at Mihari and asked "Have you decided what you want to bring? Mihari seemed to have trouble speaking in front of the new dragon and just nodded shyly. That was when Irah approached Crusher again and announced "Father, I packed your books for you." Crusher looked over at Irah and smiled.

    "Excellent! That will save us some time. I don't want to leave without Artemis, however. She should be back any minute now."

    Crusher's expression of gratitude quickly changed to one of concern when he realized that Artemis had been gone longer than he anticipated. He had hoped that she would immediately return after finding out what the commotion was down by the river, but he tried not to worry about it too much. After a brief pause, he said "If you excuse me, I need to go grab my things." before turning away from the group and heading for his chamber.

     

    Irah met Cetn's gaze and shrugged. Crusher was clearly troubled by something and he wasn't very good at hiding it.

    Ranu watched as Liger's spiky red tail swung like a pendulum. She then reached down and began to bat at it playfully.

     

    ((Thought I'd take over Ranu since Jacques disappeared.))


  10. ((Um, okay a few things. Please read the rules before posting and use brackets [] () when posting OOC. I hope this doesn't come across as rude, but if you actually read the first page then you'd know.

     

    Hey gang, I'll be posting tonight.

    Edit: Oops, gotta postpone. I hope I'm not being too slow.))


  11. Please excuse my short post. I've been really tired and I can't seem to shake it.

     

    Heyo! Sorry to butt in, I've just got some questions. For a while I've been interested in joining a roleplay here, but man, 700-ish pages is pretty intimidating. How do I figure out what's been going on so that I can join in? Also, do I post the character form on this thread or somewhere else?

    Yes you post your form here. You only have to read the last few pages to get an idea of whats going on. We don't expect you to them all. laugh.gif I can also give you a recap of recent events if you still don't know how to start.


  12. Cayhatpekn? Hm...interesting name. thought Crusher.

    "You can come, as long as you don't try to pick a fight with anyone." he replied. "I know that probably sounds obvious, but it's been a recurring issue for us. I don't suppose you've run into anyone acting...strange?"

    Crusher was curious about what Cetn might know about his enemy, if anything, but he hesitated to bring up the topic after having just met him.

     

    ~~~

     

    "Um yeah, you know...The one who our clan trusts to make the big decisions." said Artemis. "But why are you doing that? Are you hurt?" she asked attentively, not knowing why he'd fallen again.


  13. "They are now." replied Artemis followed by a chuckle. "I found them abandoned by a river so I wasn't just going to leave them there."

    Liger was snoring up a storm now, but Artemis didn't find it distracting. Rather, she was much more distracted by the fact that Lucius's body began to glow. "Oh, how beautiful! But I suppose I shouldn't expect anything less from your kind." she complimented. "Anyway... we should get going. The clan leader is probably wondering what's taking me so long."


  14. Ok I just posted and you all probably noticed that I'm RPing Mihari now. Gee, I wonder why? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

     

    OP Updates:

    • Added Lucius to characters. Welcome, XoeJane!
    • Added the 4 sentence rule
    • Added RP's current time of day since there was some confusion about that.

  15. ((No prob. I've been feeling stuck lately also. I'll post soon once I'm done with work.))

     

    "That's right, we're going to the eastern desert. It's a long flight, but we'll stop to rest along the way if you'd like to join us."

    Crusher thought that perhaps he could try to persuade him to join them if he had second thoughts. A Bleeding Moon dragon could prove to be a strong fighter so long as they weren't too easily duped by the enemy like Zeditha had been. "But where are my manners? My name is Crusher and this is Mihari. The Copper hatchling you saw earlier is my daughter, Irah.

    "Um...hi." Mihari said shyly.

     

    ~~~

     

    "I guess I better not play any tricks then." she said with a smile. Artemis wasn't really intimidated by the thought of Vampire dragon coming after her (well...except for one in particular) but she would play along with it if it meant that the Spirit Ward hatchling felt safe being around her. "My name is Artemis by the way, and the two youngsters on my back are Liger and Ranu." she introduced.


  16. @Booo

     

    Sure, lets hear it.

    Years ago: It was midnight and Crusher went out into the woods alone while the others in the clan were asleep. He was about to perform an ancient spell that was said to help enhance a magic user's abilities, but it's rarely done successfully and the spell is said to potentially bring dire consequences if it fails. So magicians are against using this spell, saying that it isn't worth the risk. (Maybe Crusher learns this from a book?) Thinking 'What's the worst that could happen?' Crusher decided to do it anyway.

     

    I thought this might fit Crusher's story, seeing as he wasn't a Magi to begin with and would most likely want to possess the powers that Magi's are known for but that he lacks (like teleportation). So I guess you could say that he makes an impulsive decision and he ends up paying big time.

     

    As for the spell, Crusher begins by drawing a large circle in the soil with various runes or sigils around it. He then draws an inner circle with a pentagram or other magical symbol in the middle that acts as a sort of door that lets him summon EC on accident. Crusher would also place various ingredients at each corner. I'm thinking dragon bones and Magi mana could be 2 of them. And I actually had an idea for what type of runes he could use but I forgot. sleep.gif


  17. Just a heads up on the Sculpey - the Sculpey Original and Sculpey III are extremely brittle after baking. Sculpey Firm and Super Sculpey are both very durable, and can be mixed together to create a nice medium if Firm is too hard and Super is too soft. Those work well for figures and such, due to the durability, though they'll need to be painted since neither comes in colors.

     

    Premo has some flexibility after being baked (but not ridiculously so), and won't shatter like III will. Souffle is similar as well.

     

    Fimo Soft is a good all-around as well, as far as making small jewelry pieces. I've looked into Fimo Professional, and have found it to be too soft for my tastes. Oddly enough, if you buy Premo and -that's- too soft, you can make it more firm by Fimo Mix Quick Clay softener.

     

    There's also strategies for baking that make the clay more durable, involving baking for twice the length at -20 degrees of the recommended bake time, as well as quenching the clay when it comes out of the over.

     

    let me know, and I can send you some links to some handy resources  smile.gif

    The clay I bought is Sculpey III and so far I haven't had a problem with baking really small pieces in the oven, but I'll keep the brittleness in mind. I also just recently bought Sculpey bake-and-bend to try out an idea I had that involves wrapping it around a gemstone after baking, but it's a little harder to work with it being so soft.

    My local art store only carries Sculpey and the other types are harder to find, so any resources you have regarding those are appreciated. happy.gif


  18. Artemis didn't know what to do when the Spirit Ward snapped at her before turning away and falling over. "I...I don't mean to bite, it's just that I rarely see anyone else around here." she said as she looked worriedly down at the small dragon on the ground. He was clearly in distress and Artemis wasn't the type to pass up the chance to offer help, whether he wanted it or not. "My home is just around the corner and I doubt my friends will mind if you pay a visit. So, if you need anything..." she hesitated.


  19. "If you've hurt yourself then I can tend to it once we reach my cave. We're almost there." assured Artemis after hearing what sounded like Liger biting his tongue. She cleared her throat and trotted over from behind who she was pretty certain was a Spirit Ward dragon. "Um excuse me." she said softly, not wanting to startle him. "Where are you going?"
