I really didn't have any tests in mind. I'm really just bored/trying to breathe some life back into this place.

We meet in the Dojo, knowing absolutely nothing about each other except what we can see** (and, as far as we're aware, have never even been on the same plane before, let alone the same room). The fight will be "to the death" but also understanding of the Dojo's functions*. Both combatants begin able to clearly see each other, including exact locations. No outside help (animal companions, cohorts, summoned monsters, etc. We start 30' away from each other.

*For those that missed/don't remember the explanation, anything that dies in the Dojo is ejected from the area as if nothing happened, up to and including the return of things like scrolls, potions or other limited-use items.

**Your last uploaded picture of the Margravine is still accurate, right? And she's Human?

As for mine, think of one of those bat creatures I've been having you draw, but this one's wearing half-plate and has a bastard sword at his side. It's a homebrew race, so go ahead and roll Knowledge (Nature) if you want/can.

Also, finding ways around these rules is simultaneously frowned upon and encouraged (just be ready to explain yourself if the other guy calls BS).  :P

Anything you'd like to add?

Not much to add. yep, the portrait is still accurate, and she appears to be human. let's get ready to rumble  !
"-Lady-Captain, we detect 20 hostile vessels against us,  and Erasmus Haarlock's Spear of Destiny ! What are your orders ?
-RAMMING SPEED !

final result : 6 slaughts vessels, 4 imperial frigates, 2 imperial cruisers destroyed. Haarlock sent into the warp. 0 losses. Flawless Victory.

Okay, so I'm getting a character together for another game. It's Gestalt. My goal is to have one side be some sort of Bard/Diplomancer/Politician type and for the other to be Cleric (or maybe Druid) and Geomancer. The point of the second side is to maximize the number of different natural weapons I have, because I'm going to be getting some rather good bonuses that I can apply to all natural weapons. (It also has a Drift option that gives an untyped +4 to Diplomacy; always nice.)

Would anyone like to help me with the build?

Natural Weapons the Geomancer can give you:

Just dropped by to say hello.

Almost forgot about this game. Again. It's hard not owning my own laptop where I can place bookmarks and no one fucks with my browser history. :P

On the plus side (?), it seems I haven't missed anything still.

Okay everyone, the DM of another game I'm in has arbitrarily decided my character has a brother (who, near as we can tell, isn't actually Evil so at least it isn't going that route... for now), so I thought I'd take a minute to clarify the families of the characters I have here in Jewel. I've hinted at some of this before, but now it's explicit. Keep in mind that I'm not complaining about a family member being relevant to the plot. I'm complaining that I didn't get any say in whether that family member existed. MM and SirP are free to use them so long as they talk to me about things like personalities. (There's also the fact that I've played at least half the Fallin family in D&D, so most of them even have Classes. Yeah, they're kinda my go-to.)

Halt O'Carrik (And yes, that's the first time I've mentioned his last name here. None of you even know it IC. Honestly, that wasn't even intentional.)

This guy is an actual character from a series of books, so this may change at any time. As of the most recent book (that I've read; I'm at least one behind) he's got a wife and that seems to be it. His most recent (?) apprentice Will Treaty is basically a son to him, and his brother was both introduced and killed off in Book 8.

Debatra Fallin - The Kaedan I'm currently dueling Moira with, and will be playing in the actual game...eventually. You know, if we ever get this shit moving.

This guy is also a non-D&D fictional character, but from my own fiction. I've been working on this stuff, including some things that I wouldn't even try to get into this game, for the last decade or so. As a consequence, the Fallin family is a little more fleshed out. And by "fleshed out", I mean I went overboard. Details about individuals have been established (though not with our DMs, who are finding out at the same time as the rest of you that these people even exist) and will be provided on request or as they become relevant.

Debatra is the son of Sarandas Fallin and Fenura Sortalir. Has an elder sister in Erinde and a twin brother Adeak. (Don't bother with the "evil twin" jokes. They've already made them all. And lived a few. They're not even identical twins.) He has a wife (Mara) and daughter (Galina).

Adeak was once involved with a woman called Aeirthir. They had a daughter called Reldi, but Aeirthir abandoned them shortly after the birth.

Other than the Fallins, Erinde has no family at the moment.

I don't even want to consider it after all these years...

But I think it might be time to call it. What say you, remaining players? D- *flinches* ...dead game?

Um...HI!

I stooped logging in for years and came back to reminisce about Vir and Sheerak.....and i saw you were active again?!

Then i saw I missed it by 6 months?!

So what's new? how did the swarm of death parrots work out?  Last post I had, Vir had convinced the little big bad that he was the scion of the big big bad, or something, some of our charcetrs were sucked into other existences, and we found that the enemies were actually the other PC's.  I assume the story is convoluted by this point. :P

Well... it's actually been over a year, and at this point I doubt the game will be coming back...
