Eep, this picture appears too large when posted

You may need that if your post count gets too unstable from spamming. Anyway, congratulations!

I have found where Sixus is hiding, but the problem is...once I get to him, he commits suicide. Is there any way to prevent this, or did I mess up royally somewhere?

Oh, there are also some questions on the side:
1. Where may I acquire an onyx scepter?
2a Which are stronger: Vampires or Liches?
2b Which are stronger: Drakes or Ice-Drake?
3. Where can I find the stolen Crystal Souls?

Suggestions for G4 creations in Geneforge Series
Guardian

I would like a cat-based creation...like some sort of venomous tiger...or a pseudoCheetah with a high Quick Attack. But I'm just throwing out some ideas.

Basilisks would be interesting, and the kill spell may fit them well, but then there would have to be some sort of distinction between them and Gazers. Or maybe an entirely new spell could be invented for them that paralyzes the enemy...and then just say it turns them into stone.

I would also like to see a shapable creation make use of the Acid Shower spell. Or even better...have Oozebeasts be the advanced form of Ornks! I would love to see that!

As Tobias approached the flyer, it performed several maneuvers and flew off. Tobias spotted a glider launch pad. He dived down a little to get a closer look. Even though the launchers were damaged, they had managed to launch one last glider. Tobias imediately shot an arrow at the glider's wing, and then another. This distracted the pilot, and made him accidently swerve the glider right at the ground. The pilot survived, but the glider was crushed. Several shots were fired at Tobias, and one bullet sliced through his left shoulder.

"They never get tired of shooting at me!" Tobias said. He gripped his hurt shoulder for a moment. After pulling his hand away, he saw that he was bleeding. Tobias loaded 3 arrows in his bow, and fired them all near the R.D.U. launch pad defenders, and Tobias made his escape while they were scrambling to avoid the arrow volley.

My character's new name, Tobias, is the Greek (and thus European) form of Tobiah (which has Hebrew roots). Is that acceptable?

I found a list of the ranks I believe that is the one being used (British army, perhaps? I did find Brigadier on it, just below Major-General. Please consider the fact that I am American, and not familiar with these Ranks), and I believe Captain or higher may be an appropriate rank.

I'm afraid I do not know how my character's name violates rule 2. I am not familiar with the origins of almost all names.

Changed it. Would you count "vulnerability to magic based attacks" as a weakness?

In order for me to decide on a rank for my character, I would need a list of ranks for Wyvern riders.

May the wyvern retain the name Ailre, or does it have to be completely generic?

IC: A dark figure slid across the sky, moving up the mountain. With a longsword strapped to his back, Tobias was observing the ground. With his Recurve bow (a very good bow for mounted archers) aimed at an R.D.U. soldier at the ground, he drew back the arrow, and let it fly. The arrow struck the soldier's torso, incapacitating him. But then another nearby R.D.U. soldier ran to the injured one and tried to carry him to safety. Tobias let another arrow fly, and it finished off the injured soldier.

Suddenly, a shot was fired at Ailre, the wyvern Tobias was riding. Several more followed, as the R.D.U. soldiers made out Ailre's shape from the clouds. Many shots were fired at Ailre's eyes. Ailre swung his head around wildly, and Rey nearly lost control. Tobias tried to return fire, but he didn't get enough time for a good aim, due to Ailre being startled. Tobias made Ailre pull up, and he rose higher into the sky, preventing any shots from the ground or himself from being accurate. He saw a flyer in the distance, and he moved closer to see if it was a wyvern, or a glider...

OOC: I hope I may join this RP. Here's a description of my character:

Name: Tobias Rautoul'An
Wyvern's name: Ailre
(the following is information about Tobias)
Age: 24
Height: 6 feet 2 inches.
Rank: Captain
Preferred weapon: Recurve bow
Side: H.W.E.
Advantages: Skilled archer, decent swordsman, wyvern rider, sharp eyes, quick reflexes.
Disadvantages: Vulnerable to magic based attacks, unskilled in the use of a shield, a bit fragile, unable to cast spells.
Other traits: Prefers not to speak, bloodthirsty, often uses feints and ambushes in his battle tactics.
Description: He wears gray leather armor, and prefers to let his actions speak. He often stays quiet and follows orders, and rarely objects to killing, especially if he has to do a lot of it.

I rarely dream at all. And "accurate" doesn't always mean 100% accurate.

And I am not very suprised that you said that, Thuryl.

I am stunned about how accurate this is. Except for the 'her' part. I am male (but it's not like they can predict gender based upon the birthdate. I do not blame them). Wow. Although I try not to care too much for my looks.
The info about my name that it gave me was also accurate as well.

It makes me feel...strange. I wonder how it could be so accurate.

I sincerely hope that guy who had all those notecards was actually playing a prank on Dubya. If not, then I am really worried about him.

And making him talk all "folksy" has only made him sound unintelligent. At least in my eyes...or ears, perhaps.

If you had actually known my history on these boards, you would know that I only wanted my character to be involved. That was why I did things that seemed to warp the plot and attempt to draw attention to my character.

If you wish...I can edit the 'dramatic' encounter between Caecus and Orloki to make it less strange.

I had known before that RPing is writing a story, not playing a game! I know what overpowered is! You have just jumped to a conclusion about me, and you are wrong. I have NEVER gotten any chance to practice writing stories such as my part of an RP. What you wrote has seriously offended me, in short.

I'm out!

The ceiling had collapsed. Not even Aerdiu, with all of his might, could stop from collapsing. The spirit of Caecus rose from the rubble, free from Orloki's taint.

He looked back, and remembered all of the pain Orloki had caused him over the years. True brothers would never cause so much harm to their kin. Orloki was the one thing in life that always made me miserable. He is not my true brother. We may have come into exsistence in a way that would cause most to see us as brothers, but Orloki never played the part of a brother, he pondered. A horrible cold covered him, causing him to shiver. The pain of death. I almost cherished the tainted moments without it. he thought. But he suddenly felt a warmth within him.

As he perceived himself, he saw that he was clearly visible. He floated over to a clear spot, and felt himself get anchored to the physical world. He was still a spirit, but he still exsisted in the physical world. He didn't feel any of the strength he once had, but he still felt a sort of power surge through him. I remember this power. It's MY power he thought as a smile found its way onto his ethereal face. He wiggled his fingers as small sparks jumped between them. His physical powers, the power of his tainted self, were gone...but his priestly powers, the power of his good side, had found its way to him again.

He looked back at the rubble, and saw some rubble shift about. The body lives. The Tainted Aerdiu
will obviously hunt me down.
Caecus thought. He felt himself become even closer to the physical world as his spirit became almost completely solid, and the feeling of life flowed through him.
He found a small space and crawled through it, hoping to escape his evil half, smiling as the he realized that he no longer felt the desire to have a body.

The world suddenly became black to him as he became too anchored to the physical world to perceive. He snapped his fingers, and a small light flickered between them. He kept snapping them, and a solid, white flame appeared, and it floated before him. I am out of practice. My priestly powers won't help me as much as they once did. he realized. Being able to see with this new source of light, he continued struggling through the small hole.

OOC: For those of you who are confused, I still wish to participate in this RP, and the Evil Aerdiu and the Good Caecus are now completely seperate. I hope that I may still be in the RP.

No, Hu is not at first base. Hu is in China.

This joke is from Funny2.com:

Boss's fast new CD burner needs the right media, so tech assistant asks the office secretary to order some recordable CDs rated at 40X. "Imagine my surprise later in the day," assistant groans, "to hear the water-cooler discussion about my trying to acquire 40 X-rated CDs for my department!"

And another joke I have heard, and I have hardly grown tired of it:

Our top story tonight: Convicted hitman Jimmy "Two Shoes" McClardy has confessed to being hired to beat a cow to death in a rice field using only two small porcelain figurines.

Police admit this may be the first known case of a Knick-Knack Paddy-Whack.

Aerdiu has, or perhaps had if anyone complies with the following post, four arms.

And here I was, hoping everyone would stick through with this RP, but no one seems to be willing to edit the RP to fix the confusion and instead they COMPLAIN AND DO NOTHING. I am very disappointed with how this is turning out. If you want change, just ASK, please!

Perhaps knowing that Aerdiu/Caecus was originally an embodiment of Wisdom and Judgement would make the vulnerable heart (representing the fact that emotions can get in the way of judgement)would make it seem more natural.
