2005-02-09 [Grengo]: Another 'it', eh? :p
2005-02-09 [Veltzeh]: But of course. I mostly play androgynes =P
2005-02-10 [Veltzeh]: How do you like its past, by the way? XD
2005-02-17 [Veltzeh]: I forgot the tattoos.
2005-02-17 [Grengo]: Its past, hm? Not bad. Still thinking it as 'him', though.
2005-02-17 [Veltzeh]: =) Him? Dang, why so?
2005-02-17 [Grengo]: The portrait :p
2005-02-17 [Veltzeh]: Aaargh! Have I lost my edge of drawing androgynes? >_< Or is it just because I'm overenthusiast
2005-02-18 [Grengo]: The guy has a freakin' boner for God's sake XD
2005-02-18 [Veltzeh]: Lol, you noticed... And boobs!
2005-02-18 [Veltzeh]: Besides, androgynes generally do have both genitals you know... so it does have a penis... =P
2005-03-03 [Veltzeh]: Okay, does it look more ambiguous now? =P
2005-03-11 [Duredhel]: he looks gay now... but he still looks like a guy... in fact ^^' now that I think about it most of your chars look like guys, Ker'odre kind of looks like a girl though.
2005-03-11 [Veltzeh]: Oh gee argh XD Darn... Seriously, I've never been good at females XD
2005-03-11 [Duredhel]: hahaha i think I see the problem though :) i'd be happy to give you some pointers.
2005-03-11 [Veltzeh]: Please do! ^_^
2005-03-11 [Duredhel]: hahaha :P well as a general rule I am better in drawing females than males :P, ok so first thins first, the jaw is kind of strong, for a female try to make it more round, then, i've noticed you mostly draw with straight or semi straight lines, try to use more curves when drawing females, then, females in general have thinner eyebrows, unless it is an old female try to avoid facial lines, the way you do noses is good for males, but for a female it makes it seem as if she had an overly pronounced forehead. I'd recommend you check some female characters (even some of mine) and try to redraw them in a different position, the Jessica drawing i made in my request page would be
2005-03-11 [Duredhel]: good for that since she is not wearing any clothing :)
2005-03-11 [Veltzeh]: Lol well if you'd like to see drawings by me in which the characters have no clothing ...um. XD Eh, they're all androgynes, unsurprisingly
2005-03-12 [Lunnie]: 3 -eats Veltz's drawings-
2005-03-12 [Veltzeh]: The bolded ones are the equipped ones, right?
2005-03-12 [Veltzeh]: Hey! My drawings!
2005-03-12 [Duredhel]: What I need you to do now is edit the page and write (E) next to the items you have equiped
2005-03-12 [Veltzeh]: For the expendables as well?
2005-03-12 [Duredhel]: nope, just weapons, armor and accesories, aye there is a problem here, your char seems to have 6 weapons equiped and only 2 hands XD (and keep in mind that some weapons require two hands to carry)
2005-03-12 [Veltzeh]: Can't the weapons be on holders on its back and belt?
2005-03-12 [Duredhel]: Yeah but those are being carried, not equiped :), your inventory is all you are carrying with you, what tyou have equiped is what you are usin at the moment, with armor and accesories you can equip several things (as long as you dont equip two hats or stuff like that) but with weapons its only one or maybe two if you have two weapon fighting. You can switch your equipped weapon for any other weapon you are carrying during battle, but it takes one action.
2005-03-12 [Veltzeh]: Ohhhhh. Yeah, I knew that but apparently I didn't know what you meant by "equipped" XD
2005-03-12 [Veltzeh]: Where do I put the items I'm not carrying then? Do we add a stash section? XD
2005-03-12 [Duredhel]: You leave them in a particular placed, we erase them from your inventory while you are not carrying them, and then when you pick them up we put them back in your inventory. Hey Vel, two things, one, have you checked the new stuff in [Grengo]'s char? and two, could you help Key out with her stuff so she can finish quickly? thanks :P
2005-03-12 [Veltzeh]: Yes I have checked his stuff and yes I will help Key. X) How do we know what Vineg has in the stash then?
2005-03-12 [Duredhel]: We write it down in a small wiki page or a piece of paper next to our desktops :)
2005-03-12 [Veltzeh]: Lol. Well it basically could be a little section on this page too, don't you think?
2005-03-12 [Veltzeh]: You know... I looked a bit at your pics of women and I'm thinking I do about as much curves as you do when I'm drawing something feminine. X) That said, I'll edit the personal info a bit to include Vineg's items.
2005-03-16 [Duredhel]: I just thought i'd make this clear before we begin RPing, your one shot kill skill does not work with enemies that have no clear vital points and you still have to do an attack roll.
2005-03-16 [Veltzeh]: Okay... is it a passive skill or do I have to say it every time I try it?
2005-03-16 [Duredhel]: say it
2005-03-16 [~Angelo~]: Wow..Veltzeh is good at bios. I'm inpressed. Three thumbs up!
2005-03-17 [Veltzeh]: Actually I think I'll just replace the last part of the history with the backstory Dûr wrote... I think it has a better feeling to it somehow and I missed how to reprocduce that. Well. >_>
2005-03-17 [Duredhel]: Hhehe ^^ its just the literary feel thingie :P i'm very influenced by latin american narrative and that's sort of the feel I gave your backstory
2005-03-17 [Veltzeh]: Lol... I'm not good at describing stuff (at least the right way) even if I could make a decent story... maybe. My specialty is being correct, haha! Which reminds me that I didn't fix the typos XD Hah, fixed.
2005-04-02 [Veltzeh]: Hmm... I guess I have to say when I'm using the magical ability of the saber, right? Is there any other catch?
2005-04-03 [Duredhel]: Not much else, i'll try to clarify anything which might spawn some disagreement later though, Cocktail's six shots don't mean six shots in a turn, but six shots before having to reload, Annie's skill (as all one-move-kills) works only with creature with defined vital spots, plants, constructs, energy-based beings and most undead, are not affected
2005-04-04 [Veltzeh]: YAY!
2005-04-04 [Duredhel]: I'll assume you like it ^^
2005-04-04 [Veltzeh]: Oh yes, a lot! ^_^ I'd also like to have the original non-compressed colored one, if you could send that... better experience without the jpg compression, hehe ;)
2005-04-04 [Duredhel]: the .psd file?
2005-04-04 [Veltzeh]: Yep... or then you could flatten it and make a .tif, that'd be smaller XD
2005-04-06 [Duredhel]: i thought you'd want the .psd one to see all the layers, blending and stuffsies, but anywho, i'll do the .tif thingie.
2005-04-06 [Veltzeh]: Well, I'm pretty sure I know them anyway =) And .tif is smaller, easier to send.
2005-05-14 [Veltzeh]: I thought we decided that one pistol shot takes 2/30 uses from one parchment and musket takes 3/30. o_o?
2005-05-14 [Duredhel]: oh, yeah, then change it :)
2005-06-01 [Veltzeh]: Hmmm... would the range of the windlash saber be doubled too? XD
2005-06-01 [Duredhel]: Nope cuz its range is not weapon-based, its demi-magic
2005-06-01 [Veltzeh]: Righty. Ever gonna send me the file though? :P You could send the psd file too, by the way. To gmail...
2005-06-01 [Duredhel]: aye aye, what's your gmail address? (i'll leave a lot of stuff on hold till I get to Peru ^^)
2005-06-01 [Veltzeh]: Guess. It beings with 'v'... then there's 'e'... :D
2005-06-01 [Duredhel]: :o :O! lemme guess! uhhh.. uhhh... email@example.com?? :D
2005-06-01 [Veltzeh]: Tsk tsk, I thought a GM of your level had a bit more functional braincells ;) ...Ehehe >_> Well, technically it could've been just "vel", but nah. veltzeh is better :P
2005-09-14 [Veltzeh]: What did you do to the skills? O_o
2005-09-14 [Grengo]: Didn't ya' read the skill points thing, hooligan!? :p
2005-09-14 [Veltzeh]: I did, but a few skills, some essential ones disappeared, so I was wondering if that was really necessary :P Also, the black magic is cone and instead Vineg has Sonic Blast...
2005-09-14 [Duredhel]: Well, he doesn't have the black magic skills right now, you'll have to get them for him with your skill points, and all planetarii get a spell of their element as a racial skill.
2005-09-14 [Veltzeh]: Even if IT didn't know lvl1 yellow magic at all? How about ITS Handle firearms?
2005-09-14 [Duredhel]: yep, and you'll have to get it, but you'll have to get handle pistol, though.
2005-09-15 [Veltzeh]: I'll have to get both of those? >_> And what, you mauled the stats too! I can't change those, can I?
2005-09-15 [Duredhel]: you can change them but we'll have to go through each of Tylien's levels individually :P we can do it tomorrow via msn if you want.
2005-09-15 [Veltzeh]: Yes please :P I have no idea when tomorrow is though :P
2005-09-15 [Duredhel]: hahaha, for me its 11:33 pm right now.
2005-10-27 [Veltzeh]: Does the lamp work or do I need oil or something? >_> Good that I think of that right now... unless I asked and forgot, of course. :P
2005-10-27 [Duredhel]: Yep, you need an oil vial to work it.
2005-10-27 [Veltzeh]: Why didn't I ask this when I was getting Vineg's items? XD
2005-10-27 [Duredhel]: well you know, sometimes you buy 10 packs of cigarettes and you forget to buy a match...
2006-07-29 [Veltzeh]: Lol! XD Now that face was a hilarious thing to see as the first thing in the morning.
2006-07-29 [Duredhel]: I did it basing all the facial features off your drawing ^_^ so they actually look quite similar.
2006-07-29 [Grengo]: I roffled
2006-07-29 [Veltzeh]: Heheh. Well, the chin is kinda different (when comparing to other characters), but that's because we have a different style, heh.
2006-08-27 [Veltzeh]: No HP from sleeping? :o
2006-08-27 [Duredhel]: Yeah, he got 21 I think.
2006-08-27 [Veltzeh]: Who? Where's the HP from the healing potion?
2006-08-27 [Duredhel]: I think I added it a while ago, he went from 27 to 47 (Potion, mebbe) and then from 47 to 67 (Resting). If not I probably forgot teh potion ye were talkin' about.
2006-08-28 [Veltzeh]: Who?
2006-09-11 [Veltzeh]: Hey, I'd almost forgotten those 3 SP. Improved awareness? :D No wait, Vineg doesn't have awareness. Awareness then, I'll get the improved one later.
2006-09-22 [Veltzeh]: Prod. See the skill there. Camouflage is missing too. Also, how about that Acid fog on the cloak?
2006-09-22 [Grengo]: Add 'em yourself. That's what I do with my characters and I don't think Dur cares too much. <(--<)
2006-09-22 [Veltzeh]: Well, I thought of doing just that but I don't think I can do the acid fog. unless he finished those bits. Damn, I gotta go see now. I forgot what element that spell was -_-
2006-09-30 [Veltzeh]: So yeah... Vineg is a lvl 21 Shadow Warrior, ey could've had those Rogue skills already a level ago. From Ri'hane's case, I'd draw the conclusion that a char only needs to have the prerequisites.
And where's that acid fog on the cloak! X)
2006-09-30 [Duredhel]: Ah ok ^^ I'll do the cloak.
Yeah you can be a rogue. However this here is a RPing chance, since the rogue class really doesn't suit Vineg, nor its history.
As for the class thing, yeah, you only need the prerequisites however I doubt players will exploit that much for a few simple reasons,
1 - It spreads your SP too thin, just look at Vineg, all of its skills are relatively low level skills, it has no specialization
2 - Stat versatility, you might've noticed that Hybrid, advanced chars have more choices for class stats.
3 - Level cap. Only monsters can bo beyong Lv 40 ^^ so there is a limited number of levels you can take in anything.
2006-09-30 [Veltzeh]: Oooh. Well, for the first point I was mostly thinking that Vineg for example could now have all special skills of Rogue and Ninja and still it could level up in just one of those two. It'd just have all the special skills... :D Unless a character can only have some limited amount of those special skills? Do the characters even retain the special skills of all the classes they've taken? Which reminds me, Vineg doesn't have any of the special skills... X)
I'm a bit confused about the Rogue class not suiting Vineg too. Sure, it's certainly not a perfect match, but I think it fits Vineg way better than Wind Bearer fits Tylien's personality for example...
2006-09-30 [Duredhel]: I'm thinking of setting the limit of special skills to 4, and then you can pick ones you want to have/keep as you multiclass or add base classes.
2006-09-30 [Veltzeh]: Goody. Can the special skills be changed, though? Like, at level-up the certain class's special skills could be exchanged for those that the character has or something.
2006-09-30 [Duredhel]: Nah ^^ you would pick'em upon attaining a class. Say for example, you're a rogue, then you add ninja, you can pick some of the rogue specials to replace with ninja specials, then you add flame bearer (just an example) you might pick one of the specials to replace with the FBs special, but can no longer regain the rogue or ninja skills you discarded.
2006-09-30 [Veltzeh]: Yay! I'm less confused now!
2007-11-30 [Veltzeh]: I forget how many special skills characters could have. Was it 4 or 3?
2007-11-30 [Duredhel]: 4
2008-01-01 [Veltzeh]: That better be good.
2008-01-01 [Duredhel]: 's good.
2008-01-01 [Veltzeh]: Woohoo!
