Good? What is good and what makes it good? Please gives us alittle more info there.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Well, I'm pleased you came up with an entry and your character seems to have plenty of, well, character. I was just wondering, though- might he be a Duergar? Those dwarves usually have gray skin....

Never heard of a Duergar. I just thought that maybe his skin would be a greyish color because he's a dwarf. y'know.

I'll post an actual character in a while, but until then I suppose I'll spew out some ideas.

We've already got a few Scholars, which is always good.

We could always use a blacksmith, or an alchemist. Druids and rangers are always good. And then there's Knights. Not fighters, actual full-blown Knights.

I don't think there are many good knight puns that Girly comic hasn't already done, but if you give me a panel or two I can prove chivalry is dead tongue.gif

In other news:

SQUEEEEEE!!!! THE WRITER LIKED MY IDEA!!! THE ACTUAL FRIGGIN' COMIC BOOK WRITER LIKED MY IDEEEEAAA!!! WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!



...well, he laughed. And that's all the encouragement I need deviouspiggy.gif

For his quotes, as an "Alchetect" he's just about the only character who can pull off the line "Who cares? The more buildings get destroyed, the more lucrative my job market gets." wink.gif

He also carries a few custom scrolls in his sleeve. They're multilayered sketchpad/business cards and each level rolls up like a window shade to go along with the speech:

*hands Lycidia a partially unrolled scroll*

"I'm one of the finest creators of fortresses..."
"towers, citadels, places of worship.."
"..traps..." (sketch any of these you feel like)
"..and other methods of inflicting pain..."
Petra: "oooh!" (probably better to not to show this one)
"Please don't hesitate to call. I'll have my minions contact your minions."
"You have minions?"
"Er.. not right at the moment. They sort of rubbed me the wrong way.." sweatdrop4.gif

Its one of the most commonry known facts of fan fiction typingpiggy.gif that writers will often emphasis one character to the point of author insertion
cause its FUN!

"You're looking for a plot hole? I found something like that!"
"Really?!"
"Yeah, its in my coat pocket!"
"...."
"...."
"....well?"
"...er, I kinda... forgot which pocket I put it in..."
"......................so?"
" sweatdrop.gif so there's no way in hades I'm digging around in this coat..."
... crying2.gif

Behold the first ever accidental miniboss tongue.gif Sort of highlights the fact that altough Eri-chan might be a druid or ranger (knowledge of RPG world +3) there's really no one on the party that fits the description of "theif." Guild rules, I guess.

When will we get to see our entries in action?Rmemebr that since Eeichi and crew are travleing into new realms it gives them the opportunities to meet new peoel, thouhg one hopes our characters wil not only appear gffor a few meaningless crowd scenwes alone- rather they should be opponents or allies. If you're having troubke thinking of what to do next, ask me for ideas-I can think of one situation that would be perfect for Eeichi.

Okay, why not? Might be a little late by now, but I really don't have to work on it. I made this character up for a mailing list rpg that never got off the ground. So here it is.

Name: Vael
Gender: Male
Race: Human (possibly half-human, half-unknown entity)
Weaponry: Crooked 7-foot staff and various potions
Age: Unknown
Class: Mage (specializing in herbology)
Skin: Pale white, almost translucent
Hair: Long and white
Eyes: Gray
Height: 6'8" and rail-thin
Clothing: Assuming any possible appearance would be outdoors rather than in a laboratory setting, this would be a brown leather tunic and boots, black tights and cloak (with hidden pockets, not that this would come into play), and a leather sheath for a dagger strapped to his right ankle.
Personality: Steadfastly loyal to anyone who gains his trust, but distrustful of anything remotely human due to various troubling incidents in his past. What, exactly, these incidents are have been written, but are of no importance to an NPC cameo.

That should take care of everything necessary, I believe.

I think I was in a hurry to say something and it was probably some ungodly hour of the night.... what? Only 11 PM? *shrugs* I like to spell properly, but sometimes the effort is too much an dI don't bother correcting mistakes. And Buck, I'd suggest PMing Xu to let him know you've put an entry in, since it's such along time after the original contest. And BTW, I threw him some suggestions in the hopes that our NPCs might actually be more than cameos... I mean, if we just happen to see one of our characters sitting in a bar, or in a crowd scene we're not going to be quite certian it's him, and it would be rather disappointing. Better to make sure that every single one of our characters interacts with the heroes at some point during their quest- a good way to do this is to use them to fill certain roles during a plot arc.
For example if Xu had originally had a cook whose fetch quest involved getting a certain herb, he could replace him with Pyetr. Or the architect might serve as a guard to a storehouse of some kind. If he deliberately makes them at least a little significant, it will work better.

Hmm, my mind has reverted Dylana's hair back to green in walking form, but keeps it blond with streaks in battle. Pick how you want to draw her...

Name: Oh, it's you.
Gender: Male
Race: half tarrasque/uke
Weaponry: Hands, feet, teeth, cuteness; cape.
Age: Indedeterminate, looks about 14-16
class: Minature Collosal Magical Beast.
See Tarrasque
Appearance: Dark brown eyes, and hair. ((kind of like the Haku avatar minus most of the clothing)). "Oh, it's you" only garments are restricted to a massively flowing scarlet draping kind of cape that kind of looks like tentacles occasionally that swirls over his body generally covering the "sensitive" parts. Standing at about 5', a very effeminate figure.
No ones really sure what kind of act of magical lunacy created this creature, but it must have been one hell of a love potion.
Treat "Oh, it's you." as having half the hitpoints, abilities etc of a tarrasque, taking into account the massive size differences.
"Oh, it's you" is a wondering world monster with an extremely low percentage enounter chance. Unlike at least one of his parents, "Oh, it's you" has very high charisma and is extremely attractive to almost everyone. Even stranger he has a sweet temperment and is very friendly to everyone he encounters. Only reacting otherwise when grossly provoked or attacked. This is sadly a frequent occurance do to the fact he posseses several body parts that are extremely useful in magical formula, enchantmants, and artifact crafting.

I hope it isn't too late...

Name: Luminaria
Gender: Female
Race: Half-celestial (thinks she's human)
Age: 23
Class: Librarian
Weaponry: Expired book
Hair: Brown with maybe some white streaks.
Eyes: White
Build: Lightweight and tall, built like a typical cute librarian.
Other Features: Has small (only to the middle of her back to its edge, and only rise to just below her shoulder) charcoal-grey wings. Her wings can only be seen from behind.
Personality: Very mousy and timid, she was raised by humans so she thinks she's human. She releases her powers when she gets emotional or embarassed (the latter occurs often), though she has no memory after releasing them. She is very absent minded, and forgets her glasses she wears. On the bright side, when it comes to books she has a perfect memory, including the name, Dewey decimal number, and can spew out long passages of text at will (usually causing others to shut her up).
Powers: She can teleport by converting her body into light (this sometimes happens without any warning), heal light wounds, emit light energy in a beam or in a radius around her (leveling buildings), and can extend her wings to fly. Unfortunately, control of her powers (except for the healing and flying, which she can do voluntarily because she thinks it's normal for humans blink.gif ) depend upon the knowledge that she is a half-celestial, and since she doesn't know this, they suddenly come without her being aware of them (threatening massive damage on the countryside.

Uh, I'm pretty certain it's too late as Xu said he'd finished most of the NPC comics already.. you might want to e-mail him and see if you can get your character grandfathered in.

And it's all my NPC's fault for having been a callow youth.

Though aren't all youths immature, inexperienced, untried, etc.? ^_^
