The Land of the Gifted (OOC)

Postby The Sketcher » Sun Apr 13, 2014 12:13 am

Throughout the recorded history, people, heroes in stories, had strange powers. Though these powers weren't like magic. They didn't make any sense... There were some magic that could manipulate the truth and logic. Of course, back when how to use complex magic wasn't understood yet, people discovered these powers and started mastering them by methods of try-and-fail. Some people created ways to learn how to use their powers more efficiently. As time progressed, spells became more complex and people started understanding the nature of their powers. Most villages and cities have factions and guilds filled with extraordinary people, be it to find treasure or to hunt people down.

COUNT ME INNNNNNN

Noble Family Member Application: (may only have one
power)

Name: Valdis Armstrong

Age (between 14-20): 18

Gender (Male or Female): Female

Equipment (weapons etc.): A heavy cutlass. Wears a light
plate armor and a shoulder cape. Her left arm guard is
customized so it was big enough to function as a small
shield as well

Ancestral Powers (Must be unique and powerful): Nullifying
- Capable of nullifying magical properties and power
-Trigger: (can be anything) Opening her eye patch. Her right
eye will become bloody red which signifies that the her
power have been successfully triggered
-Maximum length of use: 60 minute
-Length of time needed to reuse it:
-Consequence of use: In the first 20 minute of usage, she
will still be fine. 30 minute, and she will started to get
dizzy. 40 minute, she will get nosebleed and the pain in her
head started to become unbearable. 50 minute, she started
coughing blood. 60 minute, she will either drop
unconscious or die because of blood loss

Description (can be a picture): Suffer from heterochromia
iridum. Her right eye is red and her left one is black. She
have a ash black hair, rather long and she always braid a
small section of her hair. Tall (173 cm), and rather muscular
for a woman. Wears a dark blue colored eye patch to cover
her right eye.

Personality (must give at least an idea of the character's
personality): She understand that she can only fight for a
limited amount of time, and it was a rather short one. She
would try to avoid direct confrontation, and will only use
her power as a last resort. A sly and manipulative woman,
yet ironically a honest and loyal person. Cold blooded killer,
she only have a handful of person whom she cared about.
The type of person who's willing to stab someone in their
back, and telling the truth and lies altogether. A charismatic
person

Backstory (must be thoroughly written): Born in the noble
family of Armstrong, who wanted a boy to become the next
heir. Her mother died giving birth of her, and her father have
made promise to her not to marry anyone else when she
died. Dirk Amstrong decided to raise his only children as a
boy, as someone who can be the next heir of Armstrong
even thought she was a girl. Because of this, Valdis never
really get along with the other noble, as not many noble gets
impressed by her tomboyish attitude and the fact that she
attend royal events in armor instead of a royal dress.

Other:
1) A skilled sword fighter
2) Fast reaction speed, but hand to hand combat is not
really her thing

One per person at first :) If you want two chars, make two apps and I'll see if having two chars would be better for that specific case. (for example, brother and sister, if the RP requires them both to be there, you can use both)

Strong - If you're using a source of energy, you don't need stuff like consequence or trigger since you'd need that source to be there to use it. So you either add a trigger or a source :)

Magical is not allowed. For lightning, it would be something like electricity but that basically doesn't exist in this world. Weapons : medieval.
No player villains are allowed yet.

What about something similar to Leyden jar?
She would have to "refill" the tubes, however.

That would require a certain amount of development in technology. Here, it's more like technology is the same thing as magic. The physics are different, magic works with logic. If it's some kind of a scroll that functions that way, sure, but it would still have to have a reasonable limit.
