Dis gear be da shissnizz, ya dig, home-brah-ton?
Unfortunately, my crazy characters have a tendency to be reckless and violent, which sometimes makes the situation worse. A lot more fun, though!
I guess you could say the only winning move is to not... *sunglasses* pay.

Well, thank you! .gif is where it's at yo! *makes horrible imitation of gang hands, fails miserably*
What fun are stable characters?! Give me crazy or give me death.
True... So my poorness is somebody's way of telling me not to waste money? What a cruel game...
December 30th, 2012 6:29 PMLilizuki
D: Well, it looks good! You can't go wrong with .gif, am I right?
It's easier for characters that are a bit more...mentally stable, though. I'll probably be stealing from the Joker for this one.
Well, it's a good thing we're poor, else we'd be wasting money on books we couldn't read. :v

I have disarmed you! No defense allowed! This old thing? It's just something I've thrown on. :3
Haha, that's a good idea. It also sounds like something my character would say. Almost.
I know what you mean. I never have enough time to do all the reading I want. That list just keeps getting longer...
December 30th, 2012 12:29 PMLilizuki
In my defense, I didn't have any fodder for witty remarks. d: Your avatar looks nice today. Did you do something with it? :v
I find it helpful to search for quotes that fit what the character would say, though I don't include them in my sheet. "Now this is what I'm talking about! Ooh, come to Oghren, ye long-limbed goddesses. The pride of Orzammar is in the house!" ;P
My list of popular books to read is far too long. And includes everything Terry Pratchett has ever written.

Oh, definitely! Woot! Sci-fi!!!!
This has degraded into an exchange of smiley faces.
We shall see. I can't make any promises as to the quality of it yet.
I should probably read that too... I hear its pretty great.
December 29th, 2012 11:06 PMLilizuki
Maybe in a sci-fi setting next time? d:
I've honestly never heard of calling half-races halflings, hah, thus my confusion. I'm sure you'll be able to come up with something good before time runs out. :3
I hadn't until about two years ago, so you'll get no animosity from me. d: I've also yet to read A Song of Fire and Ice, unfortunately.
December 29th, 2012 6:21 PMClaire*
Yeah, I want to reroll...
Well, that is another use of the word Halfling... I'll have to see where my Dwarf takes me. I haven't had as much time to write him as I'd like.
Don't hurt me, but... *never read or seen a single thing from Harry Potter.*
December 29th, 2012 2:30 PMLilizuki
Being poor sucks. I regret choosing this background at character creation. :v
Huh. I...don't think those are what halflings are. d: Halflings are short humans that were "inspired" from Tolkien's Hobbits, except they don't have hairy feet. Maybe you can make your Dwarf be a little bit of a failed Han Solo? Trying to be charming and witty and just...failing. d:
Phew. I had enough trouble escaping from those Priests in a Ferrari back in Jamaica... I don't normally get obsessed with fandoms, except in a select few cases where I fangirl over one character for no raisin. Like Bellatrix LeStrange, from Harry Potter. :3
December 29th, 2012 12:54 PMClaire*
Yes. I don't enjoy being poor, but it is the way of things. :s
Ah halflings. The best of both worlds. With some one who is half and half, you can really do whatever you want with the backstory. I guess that's a benefit. And yes, Han Solo is glorious and so would have been my Elf... xD
*puts away torch* Since you asked nicely... Okay, I think they are just okay books. I never got obsessed like other people.
December 29th, 2012 12:49 PMLilizuki
I think the biggest issue would be the money it costs to buy the sourcebooks. Those thangs are expensive. :s
Stop looking so closely! ;P
Those darn humans, always getting in our way! The popularity of half-elves is kinda surprising, but I guess it's a good point between alien beauty and the familiar... Han Solo is glorious. :3
*has never actually read/watched The Hunger Games* Don't burn me at the stake!
December 29th, 2012 12:38 PMClaire*
Yeah, I might have to do that. I'd rather not jump right into one at a convention... ;
Yes, I do see.
Haha, human bias! Join the minority mystical creatures association! We demand equality now! It was good idea to keep it vague, I've tried doing that to an extent. I was thinking about a magic using, Han solo type, female elf at one time. But, plans change. :3
December 29th, 2012 12:33 PMLilizuki
I hear they sometimes run them at conventions, but they're apparently really expensive regardless. Maybe you could ask at your local gaming store, if you have one?
And you can see where Mimi's boldness comes from. :v
Yeah, it was. Elves have about two hundred words and a single nation, while humans have more lore than Tolkien's sock drawer. I mostly kept the specifics (Form of society, type of homes) vague and focused on the character's pre-game arc. But, I had to check with Raikiri about the brand of magic I was planning to use. He was pretty amiable about it.
An archer would have been my next choice, though. There's something fascinating about bows, but I can't quite put my finger on it. d:
December 29th, 2012 12:25 PMClaire*
I must try it some day, I've always been meaning to do so. *sigh*
I guess you can see where Anna's awkwardness comes from. lol
A little. I've taken some liberties, however. Hopefully I can get them passed for approval. How about you, was it troubling for your character?
December 29th, 2012 12:22 PMLilizuki
It can certainly wander into extreme nerdiness (This is me pretending to be an expert, despite having only played it online), but it's just some good fun, in the end. More social than reading a book, at least. :v
Are you having any trouble coming up with a decent background for your dwarf? There's so little information for dwarves and elves compared to the humans...
