    The two kittens I am fostering, Arya and Sansa. Note, I do not watch GoT but these where names suggested by quite a few people. I figured names from such a popular show might help increase their luck in finding a home.

  6. Its been an insanely busy last few months for me but I should be coming back soon. I know I owe at least one reply to someone, but feel free to pm to remind me.

    Also I just went to the book store today, the first time in years since a family member of mine got a gift card and I found a book. The last mage, a book about a mage who is a thief just like my main oc. Haven't read it yet but when my brother finishes it...now I want to do some comparisons lol

    @Ashe If we do make it group role play here are some thoughts to keep it less hectic as I have had that issue in the past where people go off on a wild tangent and the original role play is lost to their posts. First I would limit the amount of role players to say no more than 3-4, two I would limit the characters they start with to 1-2, perhaps allowing another later on if needed for the plot. Three, generally I would try to keep the amount of characters even, that way every character has another character to interact with so that person doesn't get bored/ let out. Four I would try to keep the posting a turn based one, so we would have to wait for the others to post after us before we post again and I would ask for a minimum of one or two posts from each person a week, since people do have a life.....sometimes lol. It makes the role play slow but, I do have a counter attack that might work.... Basically my thought is since in most group role plays people tend to pair up characters and since everyone should have more than one, those that have a pair that are working well together can continue working on the role play via pm while waiting for the others to post. That way they can keep up the interaction of their characters/ role play at their leisure while not having to wait and loose interest, while at the same time giving the others a chance to post. They couldn't go too far, but at the very least they can role play out some of the basics such as character meetings ect and just copy and paste those posts in a spoiler once the others post and they can rejoin, that way if anyone has any questions they can check the hidden role play in the spoiler for details of what happened. That and should other people drop the role play then you still have a role play going in your pm and you can just finish the role play with whomever you got the pm going with, if that makes any sense

    Hmm, nothing is wrong with cliche if its fun and I like the last two suggestion as they both seem interesting and it doesn't have to be witch trial specific, rather just something that revolves around beings with magic being feared/hunted ect. Perhaps it could be some sort of combination of the last two such as the king has a specially trained group who hunt non-human beings under the guise of killing them to protect the people who are terrified of them. For centuries they where actually hunted and the whole world feared them however the current king/queen is far different from the rest. He/she recognizes them as intelligent beings and wants to make a change but also needs their help? As intelligent non-human types are incredibly rare and powerful, the king/queen doesn't actually want to kill them but rather has their men try and recruit them. They just put on a show to make the locals feel better since they feel that the locals aren't yet ready to give up on their old fears? During this time king/queen has become aware of some dark force looming near the content and has learned it involves things non-human, magical in origin and also seeks their help? My idea is a bit jumbled as I only had a few minutes to jot it down while on break but it could either be a onexone or even a group role play where people can play a special force member and a non-human type each and one could play the king/queen?

    @Ashe Any sort of relationship is fine we me friendship/romance/rivalry ect and I wouldn't say they would know eachother given my characters history, as for the plot I am really not picky though I am not familiar with league of legends I can learn if you prefer that or any other role play really. All I would be looking for in a world would be a dark one where magic is feared, maybe witch hunt type stuff as his history is pretty much based on dark things, torture, murder ect so if we can find a way to make that work for an anime setting, league of legends ect that would be fine with me.

    Sure, I am pretty much open to anything as long as it sort of fits along my characters bio

    My main OC, my mage thief and I are up for another role play. He is the first one on the list under the link below
  13. Creus stared blankly after the female, when did he speak so highly of the human race? All he had done was merely state the original reasoning behind burying the dead and that yes, humans did sometimes use memento's to honor the dead. Was that speaking highly in her mind somehow? As for the whole killing thing he was well aware, he had experienced it himself countless times. He hated it but he had also seen the peaceful side to humanity as well, not everyone was evil. In fact most of the evil he had seen had been ruled by fear and desperation, terrible yes but one could argue that such a thing was not true evil. Humanity needed help, someone who could set things right but where the qunari any better? If those beings with the sewn mouths he saw earlier where their mages then how did that make her race better? Humans killed or enslaves mages, qunari enslaved them, sew their mouths shut and robbed them of free will? If that was the case, then what did they do to the ones who did not submit. What about their religion? Surely not all of them followed it with unquestionable loyalty What happened to them? "Um, speaking of experiences have you actually stepped foot in any one of the countless peaceful human settlements in this country? You know, the places where woman, children and men all live and work together in harmony as they have done for thousands of years? Places where murdering innocents other than mages is illegal and could earn someone some seriously heavy punishment? Has your people taught you about that? It is true they treat mages badly, they where taught to fear and revile, if they can't control and enslave them they will kill them but what does your people do to the mages whom won't submit?" Why was he even bother trying to defend their actions against someone like this anyway? It wasn't like he had much love for them but he had often witnessed the peace and longed for a simple life like that. If he wasn't a mage his life would probably be far different, far kinder. "Every rose has its thorn and where there is light, there is darkness. Its just a fact of life." The mage thief made no attempt to follow the woman, instead after glancing down at the weapon he still held he retreated to his horses side and climbed into the saddle. He had something useful so what reason did he have to follow this person? In fact why would he? It made no sense for him to follow her into a camp full of people whom apparently all hated humans and she had already stated wouldn't be so diplomatic? She had mentioned gems and things but hadn't made any attempt to actually prove what she said was true and he could always search for them himself. As for the weapons she mentioned, the only worth they held to him was their possible monetary value but since he wasn't a weapons expert they could hand him a crappy blade or two and he would have no idea. He didn't much like the idea of holding onto such a memento that someone might use to honor the dead but playing nice and just giving it back would have unpleasant consequences for himself, unless he could find or steal something else to help him once winter set in but a good chunk of that was luck which was not often on his side. "If you want to trade for this, listen for the wolfs howl tomorrow night at this time and come with no more than two others of your group with whatever you have to offer. If you come with any more than that I will know and leave before you arrive." He called after the woman before he nudged Shiro into action and the stallion turned and raced up the beach in the opposite direction the woman was walking. The mage thief had a meeting place in mind already and he felt that allowing her to bring more of her kind was some show of good faith but far better than facing an entire horde of them should things get ugly. (I have work early in the morning tomorrow so I am going to have to end it here tonight, will be back tomorrow)
  14. "There is a distinct difference between not fearing death and actually dying, far too many warriors boast about the same damn thing but in the end few actually want to die and those whom actually do must have quite the miserable existence." The mage responded rather dryly to what seemed to be the classic response of a warrior. Tell them of the dangers ahead, listen to them boast and watch as they suffered should they choose not to listen. It seemed the same all around but that wasn't his problem. He never understood such people or the seemingly silly belief that there was glory in death. As far as he was concerned the whole glory in death thing was just another tactic for leader to coerce their warriors to give up their lives willingly, With enough brain washing any species could fall victim, while their leader pursued whatever it was they where after their pawns could die in droves beneath their without ever stopping to question why. Those few pawns who dared to stop and think where either killed, exiled or dealt with in some cruel way. He had seen it countless times on small scale, just within humanity and he was already coming to suspect that these giants where the same. Worse yet, the more cunning leaders where able to trick their pawns into thinking those whom the leaders themselves made into enemies where to blame. All they had to do was spread the word, start rumors of how horrible their target was and soon widespread hatred of said people would consume their own and it would only be a matter of time before some where willing to fight against them even if the targeted group had actually done no wrong. That or they could incite their target in some way or form to attack and use that as leverage against them. Those where just a few of the numerous ways people started religious wars, almost all of which started and ended with those who pulled the strings behind it. Countless lives lost with the simple difference in view points seemingly at fault. At the same time if the leaders behind those groups sought peace instead of war chances where that was exactly what they would obtain. Spread hate and they obtained war, spread understanding and they obtained peace. "All you humans, your kind, both words spoken in reference to the religion most of my kind follow while directed at me certainly seems like an assumption of religion to me. If you want diplomacy, you should probably drop that notion, at least verbally anyway. That would be like me saying all you qunari disrespect the dead by not giving their corpses a proper send off. I am sure that would be a good way to anger or upset members or your race, no?" Yeah, it was dangerous saying that directly to her face and that he knew even if it was only meant to be an example, not what he believed. "Besides, a large reason behind humans burying and burning their dead is to prevent the spread of disease. Religion came after words and it was used as a means to convince people to do so for way back when many people didn't understand the link from improperly buried dead and the continued spread of the plague. All it took was one person to fall ill with an infectious disease, their body would get dumped or partially buried some where and then rats would feed on it and return to town transferring the disease over and over again. Its written in our history though now a days few connect that to their religions who demand such actions being taken when it comes to the dead. They simply assume that they need to do that without ever stopping to think why, as is the case with many other aspects of their beliefs whether they be for good reasons like preventing the spread of disease or bad reasons such as making it so people are easily manipulated." "Also it is not necessarily uncommon or humans to keep an honor mementos of their fallen family members. Walk into someones house and you may just see a sword on a mantle that once belonged to someones grandfather, they may keep armor or other weapons as well in which future generations may take up and use in battle. Likewise they may also hold on to other keepsakes should their ancestors not be a warrior, the hammer of a blacksmith, the jewelry of a mother and many other things they deem of importance in remembering those that passed. Of course not everyone does this and I am sure its different from what your race does but similar things do happen amongst humans." The mage calmly added in response to the females sarcasm, it as as if she thought humans where barbaric because they didn't honor their dead in the same way, yet quite a few humans did something that seemed similar? Though he of course didn't know what the qunari did with those weapons once they retrieved them from the dead. Did they give them to future generations to use, keep them somewhere or did they do something else? "Beyond all that, I question the wisdom behind me accompanying your people. How do I know you won't turn on me and crush me like you did to those people back there? Furthermore what do I have to gain for it? Also about those gems and precious metals you offered in exchange for this weapon of yours..."
  15. "I can wait" The mage stated calmly in response to the giants angry tirade. "I have no idea what a Saarebas is but if it helps you find them that sounds good to me, I don't have a battle to fight or anything so I've got plenty of time. I am, sure if your species is truly diplomatic and wish to avoid blood shed it shouldn't be a problem." The way he spoke it was as if he hadn't even heard the rest of what she had to say but the reality was he really couldn't care less how a group of one religion viewed another. They always hated each other, always called the other savage or barbaric or some other thing and that was even between various human religions. What she said was literally no different from what he heard out of people, however it seemed that she was mistaken to think that he held that same values as other humans. If a corpse had cash on it, he would take it another human might not in fear of angering the dead or something like that. Furthermore there was also the point that humans quite literally hunted his own kind, if his own species did that to him under various beliefs like mages where evil and out of control and he had most certainly heard the word barbaric directed at them as well. So what did it matter if a giant of another species entirely say the same thing? "I must say though, if your speaking diplomacy you aren't very good at it. You won't generally get very far by assuming a religion and calling one barbaric based on assumed religion let alone calling another species religion things like that. Certainly it makes sense that one disrespecting another religion would upset them? As I am sure your people would not like for others to do the same?" Speaking of disrespect, she was telling him that her people honor their fallen by their weapons, which by him holding that weapon and not giving it back would certainly be a sign of exactly that. Which just so happened to be exactly the same thing she was doing by calling the ways most humans followed disrespectful. "Don't you think that would kind of be lie a pot calling the kettle black scenario?" "I don't intend to be disrespectful of course but with winter on its way I need as much money as I can get. I don't know about where you come from but here winters are pretty rough. We get nasty storms, everything gets buried in snow and ice, it becomes next to impossible to forage for food, the fish all retreat into deeper waters, prey animals go into hibernation or stay on the move in desperate search of food which means you have to track them down and it can take days, even weeks before you manage to do so. Surely even your people need to eat? Its not easy surviving out here in those conditions, a little money can make all the difference between survival and starvation. Speaking of which, if you people intend to stay here for any length of time you might want to start seeking out a place to winter and if you go around insulting the religions of locals...well best of luck too you." He knew next to nothing about these people but he understood the basics of how life worked, people need to take in energy in order to expand it and he doubted these people where free from that burden. There was more reasoning behind his words than that, one of the intentions behind them was to distract this giant from her obvious anger even slightly with basic reasoning and a reminder that life would not be easy here. They where a relatively small group on a continent owned by humans, unless they had a way off this land right away he doubted they would get very far if they went around insulting people and if they just tried to stay out on this beach or camp out somewhere they would have a hell of a time trying to feed themselves and survive nature at its worst.
