((OOC: That's right, the Demon also known as Cindertanin is back! Aswell as me ^_^, but more importantly this adventure will have 1, maybe 2 experienced people only, Newbies (committed ones only or the characters shall be most ironically killed off) will get all the fun/experience they need to show them all the little tricks and tips.

Note: This is a flame-free environment, there will be no harsh reprimands, only gentle correctiones, I'm, willing to be completely and utterly sweet with my advice, not a rare treat, but a needed one.

We all post characters in OOC's first, then when it's set up, I'll drop in the setting and we all begin to work together, Alrighty everyone? Here's Cindertanin for those of you all who do not know his idiosyncracies.

Name: Cindertanin

Name before he was turned into a Demon: Simon

Age: 1,366 as he entered Krynn

Age before death: 17

Physichal Age: 17

Class: Sorcerer-Rogue (Assassin), (if you play D&D)

Level: Sorcerer (10) Rogue (5) Assassin (10)
(Yes, he is an Epic D&D Character, but he started at level 1 like everyone else as Simon the Human Sorcerer, only great roleplaying and a 2 year game made him as godly as he is now.)

Preferred Weapon: Prefistine Assassin Dagger, (Also transmutable into a sword)

Demonic Clan: Prefistine, Sect: Cinder'Rillati

Attributes:
Strength: 16
Dexterity: 22 (Gloves of Dex +6)
Constitution: -- (Prefistine Demons have no con, because they must die to become what they are)
Intellegence: 16
Wisdom: 14
Charisma: 6

This means that my black haired, shades wearing demon is strong, very agile, has no real reation to poisons and illnesses because demon's don't get sick, is clever, wise, and crude and morbid.

Weapons: Prefistine Dagger of the Cinder'Rillati Clan, (Can go from +2 Dagger (Enchanted with Soul Leaching ability) to a +4 Bastard Sword on command, (full round action).

Armor: Arm Bracer of the Cinter'Rillati (As "Ring of Force Shield" creates a magical barrier around that arm in the shape of a large steel shield when active.

Reinforced longcoat, +2, Heavily Fortified, Major Spell Resistance (SR 19)
(Treated as Masterwork Leather Armor, but, looks like a trenchcoat to our world.)

Armor Class: 23 (+6 Dex, +4 Armor Bonus, +2 'shield' bonus, +1 for the 'Dodge' Feat)

Armor Class in Full Defense: 29 (+6 for Expertise and 5+ ranks in tumble)

I think that's enough info, we're not doing D&D rules with this, just playing around, but I figure it shows well.

I hope you all have a lot about their personal stats, I'll post his bio when everyone who is here signs up)) "I'm going insane and I'm taking You with me!" Geristadt the Tinkerer, gnomish inventor, engineer, deigner, and merchant.

OOC:

Storyline, Cindertanin is seeking his creator to ask of his creation and potential destruction, this will require one Black robed mage, on Cleric of Paladine, and yes, you intellegent people this means that we're going to the Abyss!

Other characters would be nice, take note that Cindertanin is a Plane Crossing Prefistine Demon, in all truth, the odds are that this won't stay on Krynn, but it will begin there, so mwahaha, bending of guidelines ^_^.

Cindertanin will begin his entry on saturday, because at the moment I have a 5 page Research paper due tomorrow, as well as a set of 11 journal entries for World Literature, a 6+ page report on the practical application of living in space for Astro-Geo, and finally 2 essays for the college I am applying towards and 1 college Ap to fill out.

So as you can see in the next 28 hours I'll go insane... Yay for me.

See you all later,

OOC: I'll join in, I was hoping on finding a story where I could use Ayeka and Touga. :) hmm...perhaps I can introduce Kiyomi Seimiya ;)

Characters:

Name: Ayeka Drache
Age: Apparant: 24 Actual: 75
Race: 1/2 pureblood vampire (for more information click on the link at the bottom of the page)
Height:5'8"
Hair: golden blonde
Eyes: an odd Violet/Blue

History: Parts of Ayeka's history are posted in the link at the bottom of page :) Her bonded is a white wolf named Jennah


Name: Touga Daren Drache
Age: Apparant: 25 Actual: 98
Race: Full pureblood Vampire
Height: 6'1"
Hair: dark reddish-Auburn
Eyes: Ice Blue

History: Is Ayeka's Half-brother. His bonded is a black wolf named NightShade. Prefers sword as weapon, and can be cold at times...he has a pure heart, but will do anything to protect his sister.



Name: Kiyomi Seimiya
Age: (Apparent) 17
Hair: Dark, soft black.
Eyes: Blue
Height: 5’6”
Weight: 120

Nickname: Kiyo

Human form: Kiyo is very pretty, has her mother’s beauty and her father’s skin tone and shape of his eyes. She wears a short blue Kimono with a pale blue dragon on the right side. The sash at her waist is silver and a silver pin binds part of her hair in a bun at the base of her head, allowing the long tresses to brush her back.

Dragon Form: Mostly resembles her father....though she is more silvery than blue. She has silver-feathered wings that are more decorative than functional... Her breath attacks are short bursts of sonic sound....

Abilities: Kiyo can also use dimensional travel.... Though her dimensions usually transcend Time more than Space. And as far as traveling through space, she is limited to Krynn alone, she cannot travel to other planets (on her own that is).

(Hopefully that will work out well.... :) and don't worry I think I can handle all three :))

OOC: well Sly, Hope you don't mind if I start this one out :)....and what better way, with an Inn and a Song....

BIC: The tavern bustled with activity as the last light faded from the sky. several patrons nursed their mugs of ale or spirits, all but three....

the first being a young woman sitting nearest the hearth, the glittern held in her slender hands, her elvenish eyes intent on the instrument's strings as her fingers danced across them. Her voice was sweet and haunting as she sang.

Shadow lover never seen by day
Only deep in dreams do you appear
Wisdom tells me I should turn away
The love of mist and shadows are unclear

Nothing can I hold of you, but thought
Shadow lover, mist and twilight wrought
Shadow lover, comfort me in pain
Who I love although I never see your face.

All who'd have me fear you speak in vain
Never would I shrink from your embrace
Shadow lover, gentle is your hand
Never could another understand

Shadow lover, sooth me when I'm worn
Mourn for all who left me here alone
When my grieve to be born
When my burdens crushing great have grown

Shadow lover, I cannot forget
Help me bear the burdens I have yet
Shadow lover, you alone can know
How I long to reach a point of peace

How I fade with weariness and woe
How I long for you to bring release
Shadow lover, court me in my dreams
Bring the peace the suffering redeems

Shadow lover, from the shadows made
Lead me into shadows once again
Where you lead I cannot be afraid
For with you I shall come home again

In your arms I shall not fear the night
Shadow lover, lead me into light

The song drifted through the room, making people more intent on their drinks than the girl herself.... she wore a simple silk tunic of deep blue, her black hair shone in the firelight, her dark eyes sheilded from its light. Embroidered on the right side of her tunic was a silver dragon, serpentine in form, exotic in every aspect.

The only others not affected by the song and the girls enchanting voice where two closest to the door. A man and a woman, the man tall and as lithe as the woman, his dark auburn hair pulled back in a single tail at the nape of his neck, his ice blue eyes watched the girl intently.

"Kind of a sad song to play in such a place...." He commented. The woman shook her head and turned her violet eyes towards the girl, and a smile touched her lips as she ran her fingers through her blonde hair.

"She speaks of death, and of those who long for it's embrace in the end...." The woman said, her eyes dark as if lost in memory.

Touga looked at his sister and frowned. "Ayeka....This grief isn't healthy.... Kiri wouldn't have wanted you to grieve so much...." He reached out his hand and rested it lightly on Ayeka's shoulder.

"I know...but sometimes I cannot help myself... She followed Jenovan when he died....she didn't want to face her remaining years without him... She changed so much over the years..." Ayeka said softly.

"Such is our lot Ayeka... our lives span the ages, we can outlive the elves, and even the dragons.... some could be considered Gods in their own right... it is rare, but it could happen..." Touga said.

"Yes, if you where to lock yourself away from the world, and do nothing to stop what suffering we see around us every day...."

Touga sighed, and nodded. "Exactly... Kiri did many things.... so have you... but our task is still incomplete remember that."

Their conversation lapsed as the girl by the hearth continued to sing...

OOC: Sly, is this Post WOS?
IC:

A young man, with thick brown hair, puilled back into a braid by a leather thong entered. His brown tunic, while not elegant, was well made, and a cut above the norm for farmers and laborers.

His belt held several pouches, and with his skinniness, he could pass as a tall kender. His green eyes gleamed with a friendly light, and he bore himself with a cheerful manner that added to the kenderish impression.

He located a table , near the door, and sat down. He snagged a passing waitress, and ordered elven wine.

Genaim Arkean was 21, and looked slightly younger than he was. Added to his skininness, as well as a slight almond shape to his eyes, his friends had often suggested that he might have elvish blood somwhere in his heritage. He turned slightly, so that the gleaming object that he took from a pouch on his belt was hidden from view. The blue jewel gleamed in the firelight. He smiled. A gem for Gen. He shoved it back in it's pouch, and focused on the people around him.

A woman sat near the door, extremely odd in her appearance. Her eyes were an unusual shade of violet blue, and she was speaking to a man man with reddish auburn hair and ice blue eyes.

In 1 day, the king will return to the forgotten throne, and the final war for Middle-Earth will be decided......

Ayeka sighed and settled back in her chair. under the table, a white wolf stirred. Mismatched eyes peered out from under the table, one blue, one green, an empty bowl lay next to the large carnivor.

:Must people stare? It can be unnerving at times:

Ayeka heard the creature's comment and smiled...

"Let him be Jennah...you should feel flattered." She said softly.

:He wasn't looking at me, I don't think he even noticed me yet.... He was looking at you: The wolf sneezed as she mind-spoke.

Ayeka only smiled and shook her head. then turned back to her brother. "Where's 'Shade?"

"She's outside near the stables, making sure the fools they call stablehands keep away from 'Hart, wouldn't want anyone to loose their hand or their life with that crazy mare of yours..." He said.

12/21/2003 10:11 AM

Gen jumped slightly as he noticed a wolf underneath the table. It was pure white, and ,oddly enough, looked familiar, as did the woman. He rose and walked over to the table.

"Excuse me Madam, but I swear I've met you before, and your wolf. WOuld you be from the Palanthas area? Or perhaps Sanction?" He scratched his chin.

"Gods, but you look familiar. Sanction, I'd swear." In 1 day, the king will return to the forgotten throne, and the final war for Middle-Earth will be decided......

OOC: I didn't particularly want to be female, but if the black robe is going to be male, then I could swap (or be gay ^-^)

Name: Calen
Sex: Male
Race: Human
Occupation: Cleric of Palandine
Hair: Blonde
Eyes: Blue
Alignment: Lawful/good
Age: 22

Local cleric of Palandine, regular to the inn, and well respected in the village. He was taught by the head of the Clerics of Palandine personally, as he was his nephew.

He doesn't believe in edged weapons, but will carry a club, which can be concealed in his robes

BIC: Calen walked into the inn and was immediately greeted by most of the regulars in the inn, he walked to the bar and looked around slowly as he saw a wolf looking in his direction; he turned back and ordered a glass of red wine from the barkeep.

Calen, then sat down at a bar seat and watched the assembled crowd in the inn.

Tinker, the kender

Ayeka looked at the human, and she nodded. "Near sanction yes... about a days' ride east actually." She added. Touga didn't say a word, but watched the man suspiciously.

"would you sit?" Ayeka asked, ignoring the look that Touga cast her way.

The girl near the hearth had stopped, setting the glittern by her feet. She watched the crowd with her blue eyes, her dark hair falling loosely over her shoulders. She reached for the mug of water beside her and took a drink.

OOC: Oh hell.
Name: Xreona "X" Majere
Race: half-human, quarter god, quarter elf.
Age: 18
Hieght: 5'9
Weight; 140ish
Eyes: One gold, one black
Hair: Black with silver streaks
Alignment: Chaotic Good/Neutral

Other: X is the only daughter of Karina and Raistlin, hence she has divine blood. She as has passed her test as a Black Robe, and is more dedicated to arcane magics rather then using her inherent divinity. She is smart and sarcastic but is a loyal friend. She is mostly dedicated to the good cause those at times she can get nasty, given her grandmother is the Queen of Darkness.

BIC~
Xreona was drawn by the interesting music, into the tavern. She looked around curious at the couple, then the one with the dragon sash, and sat down at another table. Her steel-toed boots made little sound as she looked around wither her mistmatched eyes. SHe shrugged for a while and leaned back in her chair, looking around.

12/21/2003 8:57 PM

OOC: PoD, what was the "Oh hell" about?

Trebor: Welcome, Welcome, Welcome! We people at the RPGC are only slightly crazy, and don't worry. The cannibalism only occurs on the third weekend of each month;) I guarantee you, in a month or so, you won't even notice our insanity, as you will also be madder than any pansy-assed hatter.

You're also welcome to join any of my threads, as both Krackah and I work well with about anyone, newcomers or not.



Ayeka looked at the human, and she nodded. "Near sanction yes... about a days' ride east actually." She added. Touga didn't say a word, but watched the man suspiciously.

"would you sit?" Ayeka asked, ignoring the look that Touga cast her way.


"Thank you." Gen said with a smile, and sat down.

"Excuse me, I don't believe I introduced myself. Geaim Arkean, of Palanthas, most recently. Sanction, not long ago."

He smiled.
"Where are you bound for?" The day where all races must unite and put aside all their feuds is here.Chaos's forces will pick you off, until krynn is his. Unite or fall. ~ Avenging Angel

12/22/2003 4:06 PM

OOC: SLY?? What happened to ya man???

"Where are you bound for?"


"No where in particular..." Ayeka said. "My name is Ayeka, this is my brother Touga.... and here by my feet is Jennah." The wolf stood and looked up over the table at Geaim, her mismatched eyes studied him for a long moment before she hid back under the table.

The girl at the hearth had taken notice of the newcomers, the three closest to the door, the woman with the one gold and one dark eye.... and the other man who had clapped at her singing.

Kiyo smiled and picked up the glittern, she tuned it quickly, her slender fingers moving deftly across the tiny golden keys. This song was just as slow and softly sung, her eyes lingered on the woman with the mismatched gold/black eyes.


I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

You used to captivate me
By your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

I tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along**

BLue threads of electricity began to crackle around the room, as the very air itself began to shimmer like boiling water. A small purple hole began to grow out of the center of the boiling mass, making the crowd in the tavern pull away from it in horror.
The small hole began to glow into a shifting aray of purple and blue light. The feint outline of a man could almost be made out amongst the shifting mists.
A man, elven by appearance walked out, his silver eyes piercing. Turning around he waived a hand, and the portal closed almost as suddenly as it had opened.

"You okay?" He whispered into his pocket.
What appeared to be a small squeeking could be heard, but that was all.
"Good." He said, nodding his head. Turning around, realizing people were staring he smiled sheepishly.

"Go on about your buisness! The shows over!" Walking over to Ayeka he smiled.

"I heard your song.. It was quite beuatiful." Did you know that the recording industry can search yoru hard drive without a search warrant?

12/23/2003 1:56 PM

X looked back at the woman who sung, a tinge of recognition flew through her body, as if she knew this girl from somewhere, and yet nothing about her seemed familiar. She swept her glance over the woman again, agreeing with her outfit, the deep blue with the dragon sash and the dark hair...

...wait a second....

She peered again at the dragon...the serpentine figure...exotic...unlike anything on Krynn.....

Hiaku......

She stood up and sat at the table with Kiyomi, smiling slightly, "You remind me of someone," He eyes lingered on the sash. (http://www.deviantart.com/view/3653881/)

12/23/2003 2:25 PM

Kiyomi looked first at the man who addressed her, and smiled as she set the Glittern back down by her feet. "Thankee Sir...." she said before turning her dark blue eyes towards the woman.

Her shaped eyes closed for a moment and then opened again. "yes... I should... though you do not know of me yet....Xreona, Crossing of paths..." Kiyo smiled and gestured with a slender hand to X, inviting her to share her seating.

Ronin watched the goings on with interest, smiling. Truthfully he was glad to be back in krynn. Snuggling down in prehaps the coziest spot in the inn, he snuggled deep into his navy robes.

Kiyomi smiled and motioned for one of the barmaids to bring her guest a drink. "My name is Kiyomi...Kiyomi Seimyia" Kiyo said, her dark blue eyes never leaving X's.

"I noticed your reaction on seeing this..." She said gesturing to the embroidered silver dragon on her tunic. "So I must assume that you know my father."

The barmaid brought a glass of wine, and Kiyo tossed the woman her payment and then turned back to Xreona.

12/29/2003 7:13 AM

OOC: Something I forgot to mention about Kiyomi. Yes she has an innate ability to traverse time... but she cannot change the course of events, the normal flow of time seems to slip by her like water around a rock in a river. it will move around her and continue as it did before. Just to clairify a few things ;)

Also if she takes anyone back into time with her the same effect surrounds the other, unless she happens to leave this person there.
