Good job, on that btw.

Just to recap, what does Silros do again?

I thought I would try to develop my character a bit, going a little more into his origins and such.

EDIT:

LF, did it have to be Solaris? Could you pick a town any closer to Sliros? :P
Probly. I suppose I'll have to remedy that eventually. Perhaps in a day or two(in game) I will.

"I suppose Kirkwood will do," Noric replied. With that said, James teleported with Noric to Kirkwood. "Again," James said, "I'm sorry things turned out the way they did. I wish you luck in your future endeavors. Perhaps one day we'll meet again and during better circumstances." "Perhaps," Noric responded. Without any further dialog, James teleported away, leaving Noric alone to ponder the recent events...

In his overly-flashy way, James appeared in an open field, a few miles away from a fortress town known as Solaris. "She's nearby," James said to himself. After about an hour of walking, he had finally arrived at Solaris. He quickly surveyed the area, observing that the majority of the town guards were female, all were surprisingly beautiful, and many of them wore what appeared to be leather outfits made from the skin of lizard people. "What an interesting choice for guards. This will be even easier than I thought," James muttered to himself. Unfortunately, it wasn't low enough to escape the attention of a nearby guard, a woman with black hair and red eyes, who approached James. She looked him over and said, "I haven't seen you around here before. Who are you and what is your business here?"

"No real business," James replied, "I am simply traveling. My name is... um, come to think of it, I can't remember my name." "Oh my," said the guard, "We should take you to the temple right away to remedy that." Before James could even respond, he found himself under attack by the guard. "Fool," the guard shouted, "Like anyone would believe that poorly thrown together lie! Surrender now or feel the fury of Serena, Captain of the Guard for the Holy Order of James." By this point, James was tired of fighting and the attention this little skirmish was getting him. James lifted his arms in the air and said, "Okay. I give up. Please don't... Um, yeah, I give up."

"What is that," Serena said, "You're going to resist arrest and make me have to use deadly force?! As you wish..." "Are you insane," James shouted, while dodging the orbs of black fire that Serena threw at him, "I'm giving up!" "What? You're going to use the most powerful black magics in the universe to destroy this entire town if I don't stop you," Serena responded, "I guess that means I have to stop holding back, hoping to subdue you without killing you...." Serena then conjured another of her black energy balls, only this one was far bigger and looked like it could take out an entire building.

"For the safety of Solaris," Serena shouted as she threw her massive deathball. As soon as it came near him, James simply knocked it towards the sky, where it ultimately dissipated as it reached the end of its range. "I'm impressed," Serena said with a smile, "It would appear that I will have to use raw physical force to crush you." Serena began running towards James with all her speed. As she reached him, she drew her sword and swung it at James, who casually dodged the attack. James quickly grabbed Serena. "No," Serena shouted, "The evil man has me in his grip! I must escape before he does something horrible to me!"

"Okay," James whispered in Serena's ear, "I was just going to knock you out and be on my way, but if you insist..." Before Serena could react, James kissed her, then let go of her. She tried to move to attack him for doing that, but found herself incapable of moving her body. Soon she found herself smiling for the first time in her life that didn't involve her killing a man. Taking advantage of Serena's incapacitated state, James quickly walked off, leaving her standing there, dazed. James managed to escape from the sight of the amazed crowd who had witnessed the fight.

"Wow," James thought to himself, "Just wow... Someone should get that woman some therapy. Oh well, enough dwelling on that. It would appear that it would be best for me to use my stealth magics to continue my little mission." James quickly cast a spell, rendering him invisible to most mortals and proceeded towards the temple in Solaris.

No, I believe you are mistaken. However, clearly there is no reason to have a debate on the issue.

I legitimately would like to know who Polydegmon and what he does. So, if it isn't too much trouble, I would ask that he PM me to tell me a bit about himself. With that said, I'm withdrawing my complains/rants/attention/ect. from this topic(and its related topics).

I participated in some RPs and topics back in the day. Also, as I recall, I wasn't very well liked('specially with the Desperance crew). My lack of popularity wasn't without merit.

While we're on the subject... Who are you?

That's why Jeff needs to do the adventures of Suki, the ninja, and Kitten, the barbarian, on their epic quest for some hot-pockets and a sword that can kill a god. In that game you can pick up wonderful extra characters(such as Yumi the Overly Cheerful Butterfly Lady, Morgan the Succubus Paladin, Fluffy the Crystal Dragon, and actor Kurt Russell) to make your party even more obscenely strong than it already is. For the Villain slots you have to fight a wide array of foes such as U2(the band), random demon lords, actor Julian McMahan, and, ultimately, James the Deity.

To defeat these formidable opponents you must utilize powerful techniques such as "Rapier Storm"(Kitten fills the sky with rapiers because they suck), "Umbrella Fury"(Suki stabs someone with her umbrella rather than the sword in the the umbrella), and "Butterfly Swarm"(Yumi summons a swarm of butterflies who thoroughly maul their target in the most brutal way imaginable)

I haven't really had time to keep up with this stuff, because I was too busy being an American, but thanks to the find function, I know there was a movement to cut Lone Flame off the list and that most people don't know anything about Lone Flame. Go away for a couple of years and no one remembers you...

All I have to say about that is this...

Lone Flame: "I am not a freaky fish guy. And I'm not talking to myself. I'm talking to the ocean. The ocean and I are getting married isn't that right Ocean?"

Ocean: *sounds of waves crashing on rocks*

Lone Flame: "The ocean says yes."

Meh... There are enough variants for the d20 system to get some nice variety. When the BoE source gets released(and I can get the rest of the tools and experience I need for my little project), I'm going to try to make a loosely d20-based scenario-orientated game, just cause I like the system, and have a good enough understanding of it that I can make just about anything(with less balance issues than any other player in the area I know).

Ironically, I'm currently toying around with the idea of a d20 character class based(more or less) off of the old Exile character system. It should be a lot easier than that time I tried to turn Paragon(Epic Lv handbook) into a base class... and be a lot less broken.

In all truth, though, as far a settings and game mechanics go, I think Jeff knows enough about what he's doing to come up with something we'll like and actually buy.

Something I never really see enough of the a good mesh of technology and magic. Most of the games I've seen with both of them in it didn't do a very good job of making them seem like they actually belong together. A Post-apocalyptic setting similar to the one in Korgath, but with technology in there as well would be pretty nice.

In a bright, fiery flash, James and Noric appeared in an open field near one of the first towns James had been to during his stay in this realm. James quickly healed Noric to the best of his abilities. "Noric," James said, in an uncharacteristically serious tone, "You're a good person. You stuck with me and I appreciate it. However, while I really could use your help, I can't in good conscience get you into any more trouble than I already have. It's best for you to lie low for a bit. I'll take you anywhere I've been before, and then we'll go our separate ways. So where do you want to go?"
