    @ShinyD: There are two spots left. I'll be done with my SU soon, however, so mabye one.

    Name: Neddard Connerly. His in-game avatar is called "Golden Bear"
    Age: 18
    Country: Britain

    Appearance: Neddard is about 6'5 and weighs 190 pounds. He usually wears a black tee shirt and dark blue jeans. He has long, dark, ashy charcoal grey hair that hangs down to his shoulders and gets in his eyes when he doesn't blow it out of them. His face is generally serious. He always has a grim expression, even when he is extatic, and his grey, sad eyes and hooked nose don't do anything to help. He has the scrubble of a beard that he shaves weekly that covers his square-set jaw and a light mustache that covers his flat lipped mouth. Ned has a scar that leads down the length of both arms. When people see him, they either steer clear or ask him what he's depressed about because of his sad expression, which he responds too, "I'm not depressed. I'm serious." in his dark, serious voice.

    His character in game avatar is just as large as Neddard is, but more muscular. He wears a scaled bronze breastplate with his emblem displayed on the front: A black grizzly bear with two grey greatswords crossed behind it. The armor has pauldrons that cover his shoulders and biceps, and a skirt type thing that hangs down to his upper calves. His greaves are plain bronze and go all the way up to his calves. They have a break at the knee joint that's covered with a padded cloth to promote flexibility in his joint. His gauntlets cover right up to his elbow, allowing it to move freely, and they are also made of bronze but are scaled at the hands. Neddard's helm is...unusual. It is made of bronze like the rest of his armor, but it has no ordinary shape. It's in the shape of a bear's head, from which he gets his nickname. His greatsword, which he named Fang, is bronze as well. It is six feet long. He has its sheath slung across his back.

    Personality: There isn't much to say about Neddard's personality. He is as serious as he is bold. His face reflects how he acts. Connerly is extremely smart, but tends to spend a majority of his time gaming and playing SOA. He is very awkward around girls, so he tends to travel with his fellow guys. The Bear tends to think out of the box when it comes to strategizing, so his ideas come across as crazy win-proof, but they work. Ned is unhealthily brave and will charge the toughest monster without hesitation if one of his companions is in danger. I'm gonna say again, he is DEAD serious.

    Life before SAO: Neddard was born in London, England.His mother was an airforce technician, and his father was a pilot in the airforce, so he moved around a lot. The grim little boy never had very many friends, so he was a loner. He moved from Liverpool, to New Hampshire, to Stratford Upon Avon, to Greenwich. In an average year, he would attend fifteen different schools. When SAO came out he was living in Manchester. He realized that this would be the perfect oppurtunity to make friends that he wouldn't have to leave in a week, so he bought it first chance he could.

    Current Level: 10
    Weapon: Greatsword
    Non-Combat Skills: Alchemy and Taming
    Summary of first month in Aincrad:
    • Entered Starter City and purchased the best gear he could while holding enough money for certain things like potions and herbs, then entered the first dungeon. He excelled on the first floor. He joined in on the boss battle and helped defeat him.
    • On the second floor, he had a bit of difficulty, but prevailed over the boss, going one on one.
    • He stayed on the third floor for a long time to help fellow gamers with some monsters.


      Roleplay Sample: <First week in Aincrad, not including the lock-in>

    Reserve me a spot please! I am so glad I found a Sword Arts Online around here~ :D

    Name: Kamui Ozora
    Age: 17
    Country: United States of America

    Appearance: I'll start from the top. Kamui's silver hair is a short-layered, shaggy kind of style. He has dark gold eyes that people question about. There's a little mole under his left eye, which looks cute to some people. Kamui wears a chain necklace with a key pendant. Nothing special, really. He wears a plain white shirt with a stuffy black jacket, his arms stay inside the sleeves...he hates the cold. At the bottom he sports brown, baggy shorts & Nike sneakers. For armor & such, he wears silver shingards, metal gloves for combat, & a red cape. Weapons can be described on the Weapon section.
    Personality: Kamui is a gullible kid who will believe in anything someone tells him, good or bad. He usually likes eating sweet things, nothing spicy, since he never gets mad. He's a little bashful around anybody, whether he's known them for a long time, to a stranger that creeps him out. He's actually a bright kid who wants to enjoy a normal life, but I'm afraid that's not the case for the situation he's in now. What makes him really sad is when someone is near death or anything like that, due to being traumatized when he was young. He enjoys gaming a lot, but he does have social skills.
    Life before SAO: Kamui's story was just as simple as that. He was a regular kid who mostly kept to himself. His friends weren't into games very much, mostly just causing trouble around the neighborhood. Kamui was an indoor person at best. This reason being for the trouble his friends cause. Almost everyday they would try to convince Kamui to join them for their plans, but Kamui always refused. He didn't want to cause any trouble for anyone. At best, he stuck at home doing whatever, playing games like Liberation Maiden, Pokemon, also online computer games. I forgot to mention, Kamui lives with his mother & sister. His dad abandoned the family a long time ago. Kamui can't even remember his face, but he didn't care.

    One day, at age 12, tomorrow was Kamui's birthday, & his friends tried to convince him to join them for a great little trip. They explained there was candy involved. Kamui was uneasy about this, but he did love sweets. Finally, he agreed to come along. That night, they broke in to an angry neighbor's backyard. The plan was to throw eggs at the house so the neighbor would come out, then two kids would sneak in behind him & get as much candy as they can. What they missed, however, was that the neighbor had gotten a new dog, one that doesn't show mercy. The first egg was thrown, & the dog immediately came out. It attacked the group, scratching Kamui's left arm hard. The dog bit one boy's shoulder ferociously, shaking back & forth. The boy screamed, while the group tried to get the dog off. After they escaped, Kamui saw his arm injury, & then his friend. He was losing blood too much, it freaked Kamui too much that he fainted.

    When Kamui awoke, he was at the hospital where his mom & sister were. It was daylight, he was now 13. His arm was bandaged, it still hurt. When he saw what became of his injured friend, he almost puked. They were told his friend needed medical surgery. That day traumatized him for life. Never again did he want to see something so gruesome. It's heavy gore that freaks him.

    4 years later, Kamui's sister got him a new game to try out. He was quite excited for it. Immediately, Kamui set it up, ready for the adventure through his character's point of view.

    Current Level: 4
    Weapon: Sword/Shield
    Non-Combat Skills: Alchemy & Speed
    Summary of first month in Aincrad: Kamui enjoyed his time in Starter City. Before he ventured to his first floor, he first got some weapons, a sword & shield; the usual. It was then that he began his first floor, gaining a few levels slowly. Afterward he stopped at level 3 & decided to head back to Starter City to learn some skills. Since he didn't like to die, a lot, Kamui began training in speed, which was very useful for him. He could feel the wind flow by him, not sweet though. Craving sweets...! Afterward, he tried Alchemy. Not bad, really. It took the rest of the week for Kamui to reach level 4. Now that that was done, he was ready to log off. However, the creators neglected to install a log off option. Fearing death itself, Kamui has stayed in Starter City for a month, having plenty of game money to strive for survival. There was no way he was going to fight, no way! If he dies here, he dies for real. He's found a place to live in Starter City. It's so lonely, some of these people he can't trust...right?

    Roleplay Sample:
    Spoiler:
    "This is amazing!" Kamui cheered, clearly astonished. It was his first time in a game like this, Aincrad. What could he do first? Their were many new players & strangers here. "Let's see..." Kamui thought. "First I'll get some equipment."

    With a sword & shield equipped, Kamui headed off to the first floor. "Where is my first victim?" Kamui looked around for a monster, & bingo he found one.. Immediately, he charged at the monster & stabbed it. He slashed left, dodged right, & finished it off downward. "Oh yeah." It was quite enjoyable for Kamui. After fighting more monsters & reaching level 3, he decided to head back to Starter City.

    "Could I learn to enhance my speed?" Kamui was getting training done right now. Speed that is. If he was gonna survive, he needed to run fast from danger, especially against aggressive monsters. He also wanted some healing items, so what other class could he take? As he was resting, Kamui noticed Alchemy. That could be useful, he can create potions to heal when they were needed urgently.

    "This is complicated," complained Kamui, trying to figure out the items. His teacher for this took his time with him, afterward getting the hang of it. It would take him a little getting used to, but it was a success. After learning his new skills, he decided to try them out on some monsters.

    "Can't catch me!" Kamui cheered as he swiftly dodged left & right, thrusting his sword into the monster. Since this was just a game, the monsters were just game enemies, so this didn't bother him. It's monsters that don't mean harm that does, of course, so he's only going after the ones that cause trouble.

    "I've reached level 4! Nice!" Kamui cheered quietly to himself. Like he wants to get attention. It took him a whole week to reach that level. "Yawn~ I'm tired," he exclaimed. He went looking for a bed to sleep. In the morning, he'll log off & do other stuff in the real world, though this game world felt so real. After finding a place to sleep, he got ready for rest, setting his items & weapons carefully aside, somewhere where they won't be stolen. Just like that, he was out cold in an instant.

    I've avoided using the term 'switch' due to a general lack of understanding, I'm not even fully sure whether it's a process/skill or just a general fighting technique. It was never really explained much so I think I'll leave it XD.

    (For anyone interested reading this post: Switch is basically when a second player jumps in to continue an attack).

      I hope you're doing fine if you're caught in the hurricane, SkyisUmbreon ;;


      Elise and Krissu are going into a cave/dungeon thing on Floor 4 now. If somebody is in a cave there and wants some company, we can stumble upon you :3 If Claire is ok with that.

        Fester and Rose are in the cave as well, simply killing everything that is. I'm sure they wouldn't mind company

        If you can, SwiftSign, can you look over my latest post? It has a lot of exposition, and I don't want it to be overpowered or be too descriptive for a non-GM.

          I have a somewhat similar question...I already mentioned it in my post, but would there be such a thing as unidentified weapons in SAO? Or should I take that out of my post?

          The description (making up your own items, etc.) is all well and good. Try to avoid double-levelling, especially when you're soloing, as it could be deemed overpowered if it happens often. Otherwise all good!

          It's ok, I know lots of RPGs have 'unidentified' items that need curating. I would suggest that it's just a high level weapon and the details emerge next time you level though For easiness sake.

          Thanks! This'll probably be the last and only time I double level, the golem was a one-time time thing in terms of EXP gain.

            A very weak post on my part, which I apologize for.

            I gave another reply, though without Fester, Rose wont follow much farther, (and Fester may be a little worried to not have her around)

            Wow, 5 people are in here -.- This better be some boss we face at the end, if any.

            Also, for those of you who want to know more about SAO (how things work and the like), check out this wonderful article from the wikia:
            http://swordartonline.wikia.com/wiki/Sword_Art_Online

            It's incredibly informative, and even explains a lot of things that were only implied in the original show without the restraints of being merely theory.

            I wouldn't mind a boss, it would group up the players so that they know each other when Swift starts a story line.

            Finally got around to posting. Put my character on Floor 4 with everyone else. If anyone wants to be "friends" feel free to bump into him. Otherwise I will move him up to Floor 5.

            So my guy is currently chilling near the teleportation portal on the fifth floor if anyone wants to come talk to him for a lil bit (preferably female characters.) Lets not forget his unique eyes!

            Also Swifty if possible could you write up a list of items that can be gained and monsters that are there to kill and there drops because I can never think of anything for these kind of things! Itd be super appreciated!

            I'm probably gonna have Leila move up to the fifth floor on her own after this next post. The monsters at Floor 3 are too easy for her and she'll be leveling up like crazy. xD

            I won't write them up now, since some people have already made up their own, but I'll bare this in mind for the next floors/events.

            If you have any other information recommendations to make life easier than let me know In the mean time I would just copy something another player had made up or... whatever suits you.
