    Sorry I'm taking so long! Between my lack of creativity and beating lots of French peoples with my nightstick, it's taking awhile.

    EDIT:
    Name: Arthas Menethil
    Race: Zombie (Human),
    ½ undead construct
    Gender: MalAge: 17

    Appearance: Medium build. About 5’9”. Mostly human-like, but
    tinges of decayed flesh are strewn across the body. At different times of the year, at random,
    these defects are more noticeable. When the skin in is the more decayed state,
    shining metal can be seen underneath the skin.

    Personalities: He is
    a friendly fellow just trying to find his place in the world. He is a very loyal person to people he thinks
    of as friends. He is laid-back and
    somewhat careless; he has already died once and survived, giving him a powerful
    fearlessness in the face of death.

    Skills:

    ·
    Range Attack Deflection 3: The magical auras given
    off by all the magic material inside of Arthas gives a good protective shield
    against ranged attacks (spells, arrows, etc.)
    However, this does nothing to help against melee attacks, and being
    undead, certain attacks like bludgeoning are very effective against him.

    · Communication with Spirits / Dead 0: Due to coming back from the realm of
    the dead, Arthas gained the ability to talk to those who were less fortunate
    than him, those who left for the Realm of the Dead.

    Powers:

    · Raise / Command Undead 3: Arthas’s main use of force. Arthas can use his magic to animate
    any dead being or creature within a 50ft. radius and use them for combat. Also,
    being somewhat new in the arts of necromancy, Arthas can only summon up to 3
    creatures (For the time being.)

    · Soul Orb Ammo 3: Arthas can absorb the souls of the fallen into his metal body
    that acts as a capacitor, which can be created into slight power-ups later when
    he needs them. The powers below are all based on the amount of souls stored up;
    can be used little bits at a time also.
    1. Soul-cast Healing Aura: Can be used to heal a
    target of choice
    2. Soul-cast Health Drain: Can be used to drain the
    life out of others (Different than their souls.)
    3. Power Boost: Can give a target a boost of
    strength for a certain period of time.

    [Maybe more to add later..]

    · Whisper in the Ear 1: Arthas can create a voice projection that comes out as a whispn a target’s ear, only that person can hear it. It can be used to scare or
    even influence a target into doing something they normally wouldn’t. Has a 25
    ft. radius, and works better on people with lower intelligence.

    History:
    Arthas was put into a magic academy at a very young age;
    magic and discipline is all he ever grew up with. There was never any time
    given to just be a kid. However, the
    elders at the temple noticed much promise in Arthas. They knew he would be a very valuable asset
    in their civil war with the rival temples. As time went on, Arthas was trained
    in all kinds of magical arts, but he became very fond of necromancy for some
    reason.

    After years of training, the day finally came for Arthas to
    graduate from being an apprentice. In order to be promoted from the academy he
    had to cast the most powerful spell he had learned in the academy to
    perfection. As he readied his spell, the academy was attacked by the rival
    wizards. A spell shot out and hit Arthas’s prepared spell causing a huge
    explosion, almost like a mini supernova.

    Months later, Arthas wakes up to find he has been buried. He
    digs himself out of the ground only to find the academy he was training at to
    be completely destroyed. He finds a
    broken mirror shard on the ground and picks it up. As he looks into it, he sees
    that his face is burnt, rotting, and very disfigured. Underneath the skin, a
    grayish color shows, glistening in the moonlight. It’s hard like metal. He sits
    down in disbelief and looks up to the sky with tears on his face, wondering how
    this could have happened to him..

    Well, when the enemy’s spell hit his prepared spell, it
    cause a major disruption. If the bolt that intended to hit directly had
    actually struck him, he would surely be dead.
    But the disruption of the spell that caused the explosion turned Arthas
    instantly undead. Everything else
    was destroyed.. or so it seemed the scouting party that ended up burying him
    and his comrades. The heat from the blast also fused together many of the
    magical items in the academy into his flesh, turning him into a sort of magical
    construct.

    With no one else to turn to, Arthas goes on to search for
    thing he never had before.. someone to call a friend. Of course, that is why Arthas fancied
    necromancy so much; with his ability he was able to conjure up friends, whether
    they were zombies or skeletons. It was just someone to keep him company. His travels take him to a big place, with a
    large gathering of people. The sign above the gate says, “The Bloodgate.” In
    hopes of finding a friend, someone like him, Arthas joined up with the crew at
    the Bloodgate.

    To clarify, Grand and Finik are in the same squad. Vash is with up to four people of Loki's choosing. Loki and I will work out her activities once he returns from Berlin. Assuming there is Since there is an upcoming character he will be a last minute addition to Grand and Finik's squad, find himself in the Safron province, or begin in some other unmentioned way. Please edit your posts to account for all of this.

    I would also like to mention that I expect you to take a bit more control (at least for this campaign). For instance, Grand could post about whats happening in the mess hall, or Finik could post his discovery at the training grounds. If you want me to define setting or create something for you, let me know via PM. If you don't want me to interfere with something (ie if Elite wanted to direct wholely the mess hall) also let me know. In that case I'll PM if I have issues. Also, you can run things by me to see if its cool (<-- you should do that alot, to get the feel of things). Create your own stories within the story (The changlings having a deep bond with minotaurs is a good example). If you have any ideas about the main plot, let me know.

    I will try to post don't do's as they come to mind. For instance, right now, you may not end the day and start tomorrow. I reserve that right.

    All in all, I'm trying to see how we work with this type of open playing. I also wanna try a strict DnD campaign (you enter room, DM explains, you try something, dice rolled), a larger scoped campaign (I am working on), as well as multipule PvP systems. In regards to PvP, and even PvE, I want to see how we handle defeat as well as how we recognize it.

    My character jumps into the fray of the battle!!!!!

    Name: Samuel L. Jackson
    Race (includes description, if applicable): African American
    Gender (if applicable): Male
    Age: 63
    Appearance: Black
    Personality(ies): Black
    Equipment: Purple Lightsaber, Eye patch
    Skills: Basketball Proficiency, Sleight of Hand, Hand gun proficiency, Speaks 'Hood'
    Powers: The Force
    History: Jackson was born in Washington, D.C. He grew up as an only child in Chattenooga, Tennessee with his mother, Elizabeth Jackson (nee Montgomery), who was a factory worker and later a supplies buyer for a mental institution, and his maternal grandparents and extended family. His father lived away from the family, in Kansas City, Missouri, and later died from alcoholism; Jackson had only met his father twice during his life. Jackson attended several segregated schools and graduated from Riverside High School in Chattanooga.

    Is your idea of vampire a Virus or its own race?


    Vampire is its own race but they attempt to be civil as not to cause conflict with the otehr races of the world. They are kind hearted and prefer to be called Elderborne as they are all born from the wombs of the first vampire able to control her bloodlust. To be called a Vampire is equivalent to saying "JUDEN SWEIN! HEIL HITLER!" in a jew's face.

    @Rockem & Loki:: Awesome.

    @FrenchPopo:: Arthas, as in Prince Arthas Menethil of the Alliance? Lol, anyway, I need a bit more clarification on abilities.

    1: Can Arthas raise the bones of a 2km dragon as one of his 3? How capable are his animations (they keep on without their heads and whatnot?), and do they retain anything of their former life (a animated wizard keeps his powers?).

    2: What is the effect of health drain on the target? How does it feel to have "life" sucked out, or sucked in (if the drain returns "life" to a friendly).

    3: Potency and capability of Soul-cast Healing Aura (healing will be under high scrutiny, btw).

    4: Is Power Boost physical strength? Additionally, considering that 3 points are divided over these 3 powers they will likely be weak, their only saving grace being that they require souls.

    Feel free to post IC even if your character sheet isn't completely rounded out yet. I will set you up IC shortly. I have PM'd you concerning how necromancy works with the Bloodfort.

    Incredibly foreign to this land, Its recommendable that one should even recognize a humanoid as an Elf. Native to a Continent Far far away from our own, the Elf's flourish in there primal magic and hardly ever venture out from there clan.
    @Everyone:: Areia is the only known continent to any given soul inhabiting it. Intercontinental travel, thus, is not even a concept that occurs to many inland peoples. Ocean-faring boats are above Areia's tech level, and magic transport to another land has not been discovered. I apologize for not making this apparent earlier.

    @Rockem:: I control most NPC's, and will share control of lesser ones. One's you create are yours to control, though I may use them from time to time (let me know if I'm not to touch). I will use this post to list characters that are under my explicit control, and will edit it time to time.

    Any named Safroni I introduce (Sezzoru).
    Any named Ravilian I introduce (Remes, The Five).
    Any named Imperial/Cythian I introduce (Tzu, Honlo, Ponto, Raichu).
    Any named Greighbaughite I introduce.
    Any named Northeasterner I introduce.
    These Cadkisi:
    Bullwinkle, Janthir, Leo, Lea, Mileen, Kav, Areol, Min.

    Mark is a shared character. You may use the man when and if you need him. He is a concerned healer, and serves as an instructor for Cadkisi recruits.

    Size is definitely a factor in what he can raise up. So at most 3 medium build creatures is what I should've posted. Which can equal to maybe 2 large creatures, and the 4 or 5 smaller ones, depending on what needs to be conjured up. If it happens to be remains that he able to physically work on, then yes, the creature would obtain it's powers it had when it's alive, but this takes up more slots of the other conjurations because of the power it takes to bring a creature back that way.

    Health drain and Healing Aura are both similar but are opposite effects. Basically, he holds out his hand and within 10ft. of himself can either drain the health essence of another and use it for himself. Or he can do the opposite to heal another person. But they all require soul absorption first. The more souls absorbed from the battle the more potent.

    Power boost is physical strength, yes. So he can use it to make himself with a short burst of agility, or can use it to help an allies strength when attacking. Also depends on the amount of souls.

    And exactly; the 3 points in that category is to the basis of absorbing the souls and converting them into attacks or healing. All those abilities depend on the amount of souls or life essence drawn out. Smile

    P.S. the name was given by Rock'em. I liked it, so I used it. I have horrible creativity when it comes to that. XD

    @French:: where did those skeles come from? Its not really a big deal though...

    @LokiLeader:: Oh shoot, just realized. 1 point in 'Agile' is not enough to catch an arrow flying 180 feet per second, which is average I believe for a wooden longbow (Areia arrows on average would likely fly slower, but still)

    Once everyone posts their char sleeping (minus Vash), tomorrow will begin and it will be your duty to report to the outside training grounds.

    It was the part of the Necromancy course that he took in the academy. But after the accident, all the magical items inside him kinda beefed everything up. haha

    Good enough explanation? Yeah, no? XD

    Edit: My character had a staring contest with the bunny until he fell asleep. I guess the bunny won, unless it fell asleep also. Lol Arthas doesn't need much sleep. XD

    Sorta expected people to sleep IC, but this works just as well. Sorry if you had any plans, but I just sort of moved everyone's characters for expediency. You will have some time to discuss strategy as you walk to your flag, however, I will butt in randomly and say you've reached it and the battle is starting.

    As a side note, I don't feel much like typing right now so I will likely add another section to the first East Training Field post later. Or just post a random, unrelated topic in the middle of the fight.

    @French:: don't you need bodies to animate?

    Team one?:
    Me
    E1337
    French

    Team Two?:

    The other squad is Kav, Areol, and Min. I guess I didn't outright say it, I just sorta thought is was apparent.

    Combat between Loki&Rockem was a good example, you'll figure it out pretty easy.

    Yay, Loki's back! How was Berlin? Anyway, I'll throw you in, right after I put up the first half of the East Training Ground post (another Black Bluffs).

    ok.
    Alright Rabbi, it is time to come up with a genious plan of action and teamwork. The plan must be so brilliant and cunning that people will talk of it for years to come and write books on this new and awsome stratagy.

    Berlin was awesome. I was kinda sad though when i found out that you need a reservation 3 days in advance to go up the Reichstag. Also... public bathrooms cost money to use them. ITS SUCH BULLSHIT!!!
