ok here is a character i have used before in the past

name: Draconious (drakus) hurag-ketur
occupation: mercenary
race: draconeai (sort of like a half dragon)
class: spellblade
element: lightning
wepon of choice: bastard sword
secondary wepon: throwing knives
armor of choice: a full plate mail without the arms
sheild: no
helmet: no
cape: yes usually black
apperance: Drakus is a tall pale skinned man with a face that looks like it belongs on a teenager. At least if it was missing the big scar that reaches from his left ear to his nose. He is usually wearing his black cape which covers the dull steel armor he wares underneith. The only thing more startaling than his outer apperance is his eyes. His eyes are shaped like a reptiles and have the look of pain and suffering in them. With a dark blue and blood red pupil to back this up. his hair is messy and never wears a helmet or hat.

current wepon
reisakin blade of shock
apperance: A rather large bastard sword that has a faint blue glow to it thought barly noticeable its hilt is crafted into the shape of a lightning bolt.
history: reisakin was given to drakus at his coming of age cermony by his father (age 25)
abilities: will shock opponent on touch (very little though) can be used to create lighting spells or abilites much easier due to the fact that the weilder does not have to use energy to creat the lightning on ly to control it.

spells or abilites
lightning control lvl 1: ability to create and intensify lightning in a small amount. can shoot it from a sword or hands in a straight path only.

lightning control lvl 2: ability to create and intensify lightning in a moderate amount. can shoot it from a sword hands or call it from a metal object can change directs and have nearly complete control of path one target only.

lightning control lvl 3: ability to create and intensify lightning in a larger amount. do everything previous and can chain it. aslo ability to control natural lightning in a small degree.

special attacks

ligtning spear: creates a spear of lightning and hurls toward enemy, can also be used to cancel out many low lvl spells.

lightning claw: by using his sword he can create multiple paths of lightning on the ground. this causes a sort uf claw like patteren as the lightning bolts spark out from the point of impact and spread in different directions

dragon claw: by using raw energy drakus can create a feild around his hand allowing him to do massive damage but take a massive amount of energy to do (peirceing) this attack can be stopped by no conventional armor and many magical ones. can peirce solid bedrock up to 20 feet.

and other generic abilities

raistlin36 - Hi and welcome. I'm Luni, one of the RP Sages who helps mod the FFRP section here. That's an interesting character you have - though being IC character outside of whichever story(ies) you're RPing in at the time is not necessary, so don't worry about that. :)

As for RP rules? Just follow whatever rules the Thread Master's set in their RP's and you should be good. Never jump into an RP without asking first - and always check out the OOC section of a thread first. This is where character sheets, rules, and any OOC questions/comments for each RP go.

Other than that, feel free to ask Kalia_Majere (the RP Excutive Producer) or and of the RP Sadges (purple badges) if you have any questions.

And, have fun! :D

hey raistlin ( he was a cool mage, but magius was better)
I'm pretty new too although have been rping for about 3 years now, have you ever played using the Dungeoneer rules, the one by Steve jackson and Ian Livingstone? (also co-founders of games Workshop)

It works on same theory as most FRP, with designbing charaters and getting basic stats for them and using dice to determine outcome. But this is the daddy, this was the first one all others after it are based on its rules and its ideas, if you haven't read through the system i advise you to, every Rper should
