Magician's Stones is an RP that a few friends and I started two years ago. During that time, we've created the world of Cecilia and explored objects known as Magician's Stones. These stones granted the user magic abilities, with certain knowledge of the stone. Each player was allowed four stones: two that they could use, and two that they did not yet know the use of.

The four of us stuck with this game for two years, and at the end of those two years, the forum that it was hosted on was shut down. And so, we have come to a new home, with a new game, and hope to gain new players and new characters.

The following plot was the outcome of our writings, and is a condensed version of what happened in our first game. The new game that we would like to create is in the same world, six years later. It is unrelated to our first game enough so that any new player could easily join. There will be a few plot elements that may still exist, but for the most part, it's a completely new game.

A sample character sheet will be up soon.

==============================

Long ago, there was a great hero, gifted by the gods with the power of great magic. He led the world alongside the other heroes of the gods, pulling it out of war and bringing in an age of peace. However, the hero became audacious, and tried to cheat death itself. And so, he entrapped the whole world in a spell, turning those who had magical ability into stones, their greatest power serving his will. He then crafted himself a stone, and hung it high in the heavens, removing himself from his physical body and residing within the stone until he could one day find a new vessel for his spirit.

The stones existed through the years, feeding the hero's power, drawing natural mana from the earth and allowing the hero to absorb it into himself.

People forgot the story of Maeon, the hero, and soon saw his stone as a moon in the sky. The stories and lores of Maeon were now common bed-time stories for children of the Good Mage and the Corrupt Magicians.

The stones, too, were lost... for over 300 years.

Once cast to the bottom of the sea by Maeon upon their creation, ocean sea currents and the pure magical drive of the stones brought them ashore, where many found their glowing properties best used as jewelry and adornment.

However, others found different uses for them.

Stories began to appear of magic once again. Whispers and rumors of the stones being used to unlock the ancient arts of magic spread through the world quickly. And the stones became even more valuable.

The release of magic from these stones fueled Maeon's power even further. Finally, his time was ready.

Though the events that transpired were unclear, Maeon lost its beautiful shine. It seemed that the gods had finally turned their favor from their hero, and he was lost forever.

Yes- it's obvious you've all put a lot of work into this and are going to run it properly, and I've already told you I'm interested ;)

I'm always good for a solid roleplay, this one looks good and it looks like it won't fail. I have so many rp characters...this one gets an original character...thanks for posting :)

Hello everyone; I guess you can call me part of the TC's group ^^; Like Dustyn said, since the old server went splat, we had to find a new place, and this is about as welcoming as any that I've seen. :)

Anyway, since Dustyn's currently unavailable (read: passed out), I'll put up the example character sheet, so you folks can get those creative juices going already:

Name: They can be as exotic or as simple as you want, but try not to get -too- crazy with them.

Age: Self explanatory, I'd hope.

Sex: Again, self explanatory.

Height: Being really short or really tall isn't a crime; it'll just add to the humor.

Build: Even heroes can be rolly-polly.

Eye Color: Wild and crazy colors are a plus.

Hair Color: Not as wild or crazy as the eyes, but again, not too picky.

Activated Stones: Here we get kind of picky. You can have up to two activated stones that your character knows how to use. These stones CANNOT be anything as broken as invincibilty, super strength, and so forth. You CAN do things like control time, but it should be very limited in its use and only last for a very short period of time. (For example, you can have a stone that pauses time for a few seconds - or if you prefer to consider it this way, a stone that makes you move so fast that everything else seems to slow or stop around you.) You can also do basic things like levitation (again, not too overpowering), fire, water, and so forth without a problem, but make sure it's not too overpowered. Also keep in mind that you can use the stones as you wish, but too much usage within a short period of time will cause stones to backfire, malfunction, or just plain not work. Make sure you give an in-depth description of what exactly the stones you've chosen can do.

Inactivated Stones: Again, you can have up to two of these, but your character will, at the beginning of the game, be unable to use them and not be aware of what powers they possess. You yourself can have a plan for what the stones do, but your character shouldn't know right off the bat. When thinking of these stones' powers, try to keep in line with the above limits.

Weapon of Choice: This can be anything you choose, but keep in mind your character's size in relation to the weapon you choose. A small little girl with a massive axe may work in video games, but not here.

Biography: A short description of your character's past (this can be as vague or as specific as you want) and their general personality. You should also describe what they're doing and how they might end up mixed up in the story.

That should be all the specifics on that end. Have fun with those creative ideas! Whiz out.

My interest is definitely peaked. This sounds lovely...I will be keeping an eye out for it. Once you have an actual thread, I will post a character concept.

Darthwedge
06/02/2007 12:56 PM

Name: Robert Halbron

Age: 45

Sex: Male

Height: 6 feet

Build: Average build. Well defined muscles.

Eye Color: Bright, almost glowing, green eyes

Hair Color: Bright red hair.

Activated Stones: Thunder stone: Gives him ability to use and manipulate lightning
Fire Stone: Same as lightning only with fire.

Inactivated Stones: Earth stone: Same as lightning only with the earth.
Water stone: Same as lightning only with water.

ALL STONES CAN ONLY BE USED IN CONSIDERATION. THE MORE AND MORE HE USES THE STONES POWERS HIS PHYSICAL STRENGHT BECOMES WEAKER.

Weapon of Choice: Has a Wakazashi and Katana, also has a composite bow with quiver that holds 15 arrows.

Biography: Grew up a farmers life. Was an "elite" farmer and knew everything that there was to know. When he was 20 years old, his father became very sick and died. With his father's dying words, he gave Robert the farm and asked him to take care of it and do not sell it. Robert followed these wishes and kept it up for 20 years. Then, one day he made a trip to a port town to sell his crops. This is when he found the stones washed up on a beach. They were colored red, green, blue, and yellow. He quickly was mesmerized by the stones and always wears them around his neck. He became increasingly interested in them and found out the red and yellow's abilitys by accident, lightning and fire. He became really proficient in these abilitys, which is when the men came. A group of men came to his farm and wanted the stones, when Robert refused, they fought. Robert's only weapons were the stones and a pitchfork. He fought bravely but was eventually defeated and he was force to flee. He spends the rest of his life as a man on the run, pursued by the men that attacked him. He Taught himself to fight with swords and bows and always tries to find what the other stones do.

Looks like I'm alive once more. My schedule's so messed up. I woke up at 8 PM last night, stayed out all night with my friend, and then came home and crashed at 7 AM. And just woke up recently, haha.

Adding the 4 original, those that have stated interest in this thread, and a friend of mine unrelated to the first game and not on these forums, that's 9 potential players so far. I'd like to see one or two more people interested before we get started. I may leave this for a few more days.

If you know anyone that might be interested in this (and actually has some slight skill and grammatical efficiency), please send them our way. We won't be accepting everyone (especially those of you that may, to put it bluntly, suck), so more people wanting to play would be wonderful.

If you have any questions, just post 'em up, or ask any of us. The other two that have not yet posted in this thread are Deathword and glenn frog knight (whom I believe has not yet posted on the forums at all).

Thanks for your interest, everyone.

Lets have fun!

Thanks for the invite Dustyn. It sounds like you have an idea here, and if the roleplay itself lasted for two years, then that shows some dedication which I applaud you for. Unless something comes up, I'll be working on a character sheet for you. :-)

06/02/2007 11:03 PM

From what i read, this should be good, lemme know if it needs tweakin, its my bio basically because hes gonna be like me, save a few things


Name: Emm Adams

Age: 18

Sex: Male

Height: 5'4

Build: Fat......prefers to be called...fluffy

Eye Color: Black

Hair Color: Blond

Activated Stones:
Defense - This stone gives him agility and stamina, the primary qualities for defense. Simple enough.
Metal - Much like magneto, he can control any metal even to the point of molecules. He CANNOT create metal though, only manipulate it.

Inactivated Stones: Haven't thought of them yet, I will reveal them at the right moment in the rp, like at a climax for instance.

Weapon of Choice: Carries a large one handed axe and various light throwing axes. Also carries a spare bow with a quiver and 10 arrows. Thinking of getting him new weapons during the rp.

Biography: His past is very simple. He got bored after finishing school and he decided to join the army. He has been in the army for one year, and was recently released after his brother was killed, as is custom where he is from. He is now a mercenary that hides his past. His father was a priest in a very old church and in it was a relic, a religious artefact that was customary to have in churches of old. On a beat up, used gold chalice was inlaid 4 stones. When Emm returned on leave from military duties for a week, he visited his father and the church. During the night, a cult set fire to the church and destoryed everything. He awoke in time to hear his father's last words, take the chalice with you, Emm, keep it safe. He has kept the chalice, and of since, he has learned of 2 of its powers.

Whizkid7
06/03/2007 10:07 AM

Looking good so far on the characters. Only problem is some of the stone powers. Adam, Emm's metal stone should be limited to only one type of metal, and you're going to have to explain what the defensive stone does exactly in a little more depth.

Darth, the two inactive stones should have much smaller timeframes. The speed one should be at most only a few seconds, and the invisibility one as well, unless you add some restrictions to the usage of the invisible stone.

Other than that, everything is pretty much a-okay. A tweak to the backstories here and there wouldn't be bad either.

Darthwedge
06/03/2007 10:25 AM

I like the back story of mine but ill tweak the stones. Maybe ill just change them.

Dustyn
06/03/2007 10:27 AM

It's not so much the story itself that we're worried about, it's the grammar and flow. Put a little more time into it, so it looks like you actually want to have an interesting character. Learn that good grammar, spelling, and punctuation can go a long way, especially in roleplaying.

Darthwedge
06/03/2007 10:34 AM

There i changed my inactivated stones, i lik it better this way.

Well, it doesn't show, to be perfectly honest. ;]



Then, a mysterious meteor shower during the night and in the morning, Robert found a rock with 4 glowing stones in them.



One yellow, one red, one black, one white.



Lightning and fire.

adamsonite
06/03/2007 11:06 AM

Well I think giving you numbers is a bit too far, i'll work the powers into the roleplay description. But i decided to change them to allow for smooth goings.

The metal stone (I didnt see anything wrong, but i change n e way). He now has holier powers, derived from the chalice. Healing maybe?

The defense I will change also, he now has the stone of Deitical Forseeing. Through meditation and prayer, he can speak to other people inside they're mind

Dustyn
06/03/2007 11:49 AM

I mean, you don't have to go changing your stones completely. Just weaken them a little. Give them a drawback. I mean, the ability to manipulate any metal? That could take out an army if you don't put limitations on it. You could always make it specific to one kind of metal, or make it so that it only works on small amounts.

Just be sure that you're comfortable with your stones, because, for the most part, you'll be spending a lot of time with them. Don't make it something that you won't be using. For instance, you don't necessarily have to make your stones be combat related. Magic comes in all forms, including increased physical strength, increased intellectual capacity, telekenesis, control over time, etc. But, again. Choose your own stones carefully. You can change them at any time between now and when the RP actually starts. But once you've got 'em played, you can't change it!

Darthwedge
06/03/2007 11:54 AM

I like mine, i just basically made them the elements, tell me if they are ok.

Dustyn
06/03/2007 12:01 PM

It's your choice. If you want the elements, you can have the elements. Just don't overpower them.

Darthwedge
06/03/2007 12:02 PM

I just asked you if you thought they were ok, I want you to tell me if they are overpowerd or not :p.

Dustyn
06/03/2007 12:24 PM

How am I supposed to know? You haven't said their powers other than "earth water fire lightninglol". To what extent do they have control over each element? What are the disadvantages? How long can the stone be active before it overheats/backfires/becomes unusable? Give me more detail about your stones, and then use your own judgment to decide whether the stones are overpowered or not. If you still can't figure it out, well, I guess then I'll hold your hand through stone creation. ;]

Darthwedge
06/03/2007 12:30 PM

I tell you exactly what they do if you read my post. Where it says activated and inactivated stones i tell you. And my own judgment was that they were fine but i don't want to overpower myself and then have the GM (you) bitch at me later for not following rules.

Deathword
06/03/2007 1:42 PM

That's why we have 4 GMs. If one of us is bitching wrongly, the other 3 will come to the person's aid. Or.... if the GM is bitching with a reason, we'll try and help resolve the situation. So please, fear not.

Dustyn
06/03/2007 6:07 PM

I simply meant that I needed more detail on your stones, Darth. Explain some weaknesses to your stones. I'm letting you know what you can do. I'm not bitching at you for not following rules, nor will I ever bitch at anyone for not following rules. I'll correct you, but I won't 'bitch' at you. I'm trying to get you to put more detail, and weaken them a bit.

A sudden release of power like that from the stones should definately have potential drawbacks. So, keep that in mind. I'm not going to directly tell you what to do, as it's your character. So, you tell me what you're going to do with it.

adamsonite
06/03/2007 7:03 PM

My stones are now strength. It has a limitation in that he is like a warrior on wow, he needs rage and will to attain his power.

I'm going back to the metal, but with stone instead, once again, needs to build berserker rage to use it.

Whizkid7
06/03/2007 7:13 PM

That's actually very good, Adam, and it reminded me of something I forgot to mention about the stones.

Generally, the stones are dormant, and their magic cannot be called on just by whim. You usually have to focus on the stone in order to use its power. However, some stones can be activated by certain emotions (for example, a berserker stone, which sends the wielder into a blind rage, is activated by intense anger or rage). What you've done with your stones is pretty much that, and I commend you for such thinking. You're gonna fit in pretty good, methinks :P

It seems so interesting I just hope I'm not too late to join.


Name: Amadis Meline Berass

Age: 25

Sex: Female.

Height: 5'5

Build: Fit, though a tad skinny.

Eye Color: Coal black eyes.

Hair Color: Shady brown.

Activated Stones:
She has two stones, the first one was gemstone with a jade texture, it is able to enhance her eyes to see unworldly things, and with more concentration she can pinpoint weaknesses of enemies. The second stone was a white marble stone when activated it glow an eerily light which can only be seen in the dark; it could give small and short burst of strength. The downside is that it can't be used for a long period of time.

Inactivated Stones:
She has one inactivate stone, it was a dark grey color with a metal texture. It is able to sharpen objects; something like paper could be as sharp as a throwing knife.

Weapon of Choice:
Assorted amount of knives, daggers and small blades. She hides them wherever she can, in her shoes, bracelets and even hair.

Biography:
Her father had named her Amadis, after the god of love. With her small smile she would charm the people around her. Her father, traveling archeologist and a widow would leave for long periods of time. She and her little brother, Admon grew up together alone. At times her father would come back and bring some artifacts. One time he bought back three stones and left the next day. She received the gemstone and marble while her little brother had the dark grey stone.
However one day, strangers came looking for the stones. Her precious brother had answered the door and was attacked in front of her eyes. She was scared and the stone activated. Everything was much more different, she could see a light leaving her brother's body and the strangers were coming closer. Before she knew it the strangers lay down on the ground dead and a bloody knife was in her hand. She was still alive, and her brother was dead. Taking the dark grey stone from her brother neck, she fled. She would find her father and kill him. He was the reason from Admon's death and he would pay dearly.

We'll probably have the thread up sometime tomorrow, or maybe the next day. I'm not sure yet. Either way, I gotta get some sleep tonight, so I probably won't be around anymore until tomorrow. Either way, keep the character sheets coming. Maybe one or two more and I'll be confident starting. :D

This is very interesting and very creative, i'd like to contribute to this:

Name: Leoraki Terran (Leo for short)

Age: 29

Sex: Male

Height: 6'0

Build: Average, young build.

Eye Color: Aquamarine

Hair Color: Short, straight and blond.

Activated Stones:
Blazing Flurry Stone: Allows the user to MUNIPULATE fire into any shape and size to strike his foes, Leo can get cocky and likes to name each shape of fire he makes and eventually boasts about them. Usually found in a gold necklace he has.

Gem Finder Stone: Allows the user to track down gems (rubies, aquamarines, diamonds, emeralds, etc...) from underground or hidden places (I chose this because of Leo's old profession, mining)

Inactivated Stones:
Animal Speech Stone: Allows the user to speak to an animal with telepathy for a short period of time, it can be deactivated if the user wishes. (Time Limit - 30 - 50 seconds)

Sonic Air Stone: Allows the user to blow or scream silently at an object to move it if it's in the way, can only push what Leo can possibly be able to push.

Weapon of Choice: Two short sabre's, one with the gem finder stone encrusted in the blade, the sabre's were made by Leo's father who was a local blacksmith.

Biography: Leoraki was born in a village just on the outskirts of a forest, he, his father and mother were always distant, his father who was a brilliant blacksmith, was always going between villages to craft his finest weapons for knights and nobles. His mother worked in the local tavern as a cook and considering the tavern was open all day and most of the night, he was left to be looked after by his aunt who had no work at all. From her he learned that nature should be respected and after she died, he begun to understand why. When he was 17 he and his father went to a village to blacksmith, as Leo was his fathers apprentice. His father, as a gift of apprenticeship crafted two sabre's for him, one with a slot in it, and this is where his father gave him the Gem Finder, a stone of which he found while in another village, Leo inserted the stone in the slot and farewelled his father and he went to a mining village to become a miner. He soon learn't what the Gem Finder was capable of and used it to much, as a result the Gem Finder Stone begun malfunctioning and he never used it again until one day it would be fixed. When mining he found the two mysterious gems which looked like the Gem Finder, the 'abilities' of these stones where not usable so Leoraki stored them for safe keeping. He bought the Blazing Flurry Stone from a noble who said it was useless and Leoraki began to know it's power. Now Leoraki works as a ship builder in the docks of another village.

If there are any problems, please let me know :)

Okay- brain's [i]still[/i] foggy (house party last night as well as STILL being ill) so let me know anything that should be changed.




Name: Iesha Rahul

Age: 27

Height: 5'6

Build: average, tending toward the nicely curvy side

Eye colour: her left is dark grey, her nearly blind right a milky white and so unnoticeable against the sclera.

Hair colour: very, very fair blonde, and worn cropped short and toussled



Activated stones:

Seeing- a translucent blue stone allows her the ability to view events and people at a distance. To do this she must have some type of reflective surface- a clear liquid, mirror etc. It requires great concentration, meaning that she can do nothing else while using the stone, and is greatly tired after its use. She must hold her breath to activate and use the stone (how about lack of oxygen affects her brain and ocular nerve function, allowing her to access the stone's power ;)), and the ability only lasts for as long as she can hold her breath. She does not hear any sound while viewing, meaning that what she sees is narrow and open to interpretation. The further the distance the more brief the viewing time and the more debilitating her reaction. If it is to scry on people she knows concentration is easier to maintain.

Speed- a clear, colourless stone greatly increases her speed relative to those around her. Straightforward enough. To activate the stone she must feel at least anxious or concerned (i.e. she couldn't just use it to get the housecleaning done more quickly unless she was [i]really[/i] concerned about what the neighbours would think). The drawback is that as [i]she[/i] is being sped up rather than everything else being slowed down so is her heart rate, breathing etc. so once she returns to normal speed she is dizzy, faint and often nauseous. Maximum time she can use this ability for is approximately two minutes, the length of time being directly proportional to the strength of the after effects (i.e. if she used it for 5 seconds she'd only feel a little dizzy).

Inactivated stones: one grey, one chocolate brown.
Haven't decided on them yet but I may have one as Heal, the drawback being the energy used to do the healing comes from her, so she's limited by what she's willing to give, and obviously unable to resurrect.


Weapon of choice: ranged weapons are obviously not her forte given the binocular vision issues, and she prefers to fight in close so that perspective isn't a problem. Usually uses a morning star combined with a sharp-edged shield. The village where she lives is on the seacoast and has in the past been raided, and so a small but disciplined and efficient militia was formed to protect it. The village is small so all able bodied are expected to join up and attend at least one training session a week- this is where she learned to use a weapon.


Biography: Iesha grew up a city girl, one of seven children. Her early life was uneventful- no orphanings, abandonments or plagues- her parents were hardworking and hardhanded but not cruel, and made sure that, although they needed to work, their children also got some education.

When she was fifteen she found a place as a nanny with a good family, the Arbels, and for a while it was a good life. The children were fond of her and she of them, her employers pleasant and fair. But after a difficult labour upon the birth of their third child Mrs. Arbel was slow to recover, in both body and spirit, suffering from poor health and depression. During this trying time her husband, Dayne, trying to cope with the strains of both his family and work lives, turned to alcohol. One night after settling the children Iesha came to his study to bid him goodnight and found him in a drunk and maudlin state. Trying to encourage him to retire to his bed she instead aroused his frustration: he assaulted and used her before passing out.

Leaving the house before the sun rose she was reluctant to go home but did so, saying to her parents only that the Arbels had no further need of her.
Four months later when her belly began to swell and harden she again slipped away in the night, making her way to the labyrinthine slums of the city.

Supporting herself by doing almost any work she could find she yet grew malnourished, and finally ill, succumbing to a sickness common in the slums. 'Ghost Eye' was caused by a parasite, and cost any infected the sight in one, if not both, of their eyes. Considering herself lucky she got back to work as soon as she was able, eventually finding regular and honest work with a middle-aged carter, Eown Bross. Initially she helped him with messengering and light loading and unloading, but eventually was able to help him keep his account books. He never commented on her condition, nor asked questions of her, and when the baby was stillborn suggested she come with him on a trip to the coast to visit his sister.

Sherra and her fisherman husband Tavin lived in a small but welcoming village, Cragaven, and Iesha's spirit returned during the stay, the strange sight of the sea enchanting her and easing the pain inside.
The morning they were to leave she woke to find a letter on her pillow and Eown already gone. In a clumsy hand he had written that he would return in a month, and if she wished to return with him to the city she could, but that his sister and her husband, having no children of their own, had said they would welcome Iesha into their home. There was no explanation for his actions in the letter, but when he returned a month later Iesha was already learning how to repair nets and row a boat.
She remained in the village, anticipating Eown's visits but never returning to the city, and in time writing a letter to her family to explain what had become of her, and that she was happy.
Two years after settling in Cragaven she found her stones on the shore while beachcombing, and she wears them always in a small seal-skin pouch around her neck.




Oh GOD that is so Mary Sue.. but with no more details about Celicia it's the best I can do, I'm afraid!

Let me know especially about the stones- I tried to make sure they weren't overpowered.

There is nothing wrong with having a somewhat normal life, with a couple of mishaps. Really, no big problem. At least there weren't any drowning children. :-p

Should I assume from the lack of comment that my character is okay?

Oh, yeah. Your character's fine, nanuk. As close to perfect as one could get at this point. :P

At least you didn't have magic stones somehow coming from space.

Joke or not, its still an insult to my idea. I take this offensivly, and how can you even say take it as a joke, you didn't even say it.

Just putting up a reminder that I am interested, and I will put up a character once the actual RP is up for your approval.

Wait a second. "Insulted by one of you 4"? I insulted you? (Aside from Dustyn, I guess I'm the only other possible suspect) I'm sorry if you found what I said insulting. I was trying to help....

You see, Dustyn didn't mean it to insult you and I was trying to tell you that. It was a joke, nothing more nothing less. He has done that to others and they have taken it fine. (Now, I am just expressing my honest opinion which could be very wrong) It seems like you have some issues with how people take your work. It's all good and all, but to be honest, not everyone will accept your work with open arms.... Please be considerate to others and their opinions.

I was not accusing you, i think your fine. Anyway, there is a differance beetween insults and opinions.

Anyway, enough of this foolishness. No petty arguments, srsly. I'm just trying to get Darth to analyze his work better. The only way he'll do so is if he knows that other people are doing it. The stones were cast into the sea by Maeon, so would likely not have come from a meteor. I'm trying to help you, but at the same time, I'm just fucking around. That's how I am. I apologize that I offended you, that was not my intent.

Everyone, the RP will likely be up soon. I'll try to get it up (hmm) sometime tonight.

Name: Brianne Nimerche

Age: 14

Height: 5.0 ft

Build: Brianne is thin and lanky, with near skeletal arms and legs

Eye colour: Sky blue

Hair colour: Her hair would be a golden blond if it were not usually dirty. It hangs just above her shoulders, descending in messy, exceedingly stringy tendrils.

Activated stones: One orange, one a shimmery blue

Shimmery blue (for lack of better color name) - This stone levitates the user when held. However it only levitates them no more than four inches off of the ground. It appears to have no other substantial power, and while it does not tax the user in any way, its use appears relatively pointless to Brianne. While inches from the ground, the user cannot move forwards or backwards, or in any direction at all besides standing exactly where she is.

Burnt Orange - The Burnt Orange stone is hot to the touch. Besides giving off heat, it has no other power. One can only hold it for ten seconds without the acrid smell of fried flesh rippling through the air, so it spends most of its time inside an insulated navy pouch.

Inactivated stones: A violet stone and a navy stone.

Violet - I think it has a temporary telekiniesis power. As in, you can project one thought into one person's brain, but it can only be used once per person.

Navy - Currently in development

Weapon of choice: Brianne carries a small knife with her at all times. Beyond that, she has nothing.

Biography: As far back as Brianne can remember, she lived in an orphanage on 17th Street, the [i]Helpless House[/i]. The name originally was supposed to be the Helpful House, but after the mistake of the sign painter, the name was forever changed, and indeed, was more fitting this way. The management of the orphanage did not tell her how she came to exist there, who her parents were, if she even had them. At eleven, she fled, unable to handle the mundane existence that the orphanage offered.

In the city she was alone, a ruffian child of the streets, a nameless beggar and street urchin that most people ignore and feel sorry for. For a short time she was the leader of a band of small children who stole and sold things to survive, but slowly they each disappeared until she was alone again. It was during this process that she met Perfidious Ralph. Perfidious was a broker in foreign and used goods, most often black market items that should not see the light of day. It was he that allowed her a job and an occasional place to stay.

One not so important day, a wild-looking man with white hair to his waist stumbled into the shop, raving like a lunatic and waving his hands around. They were charred to the bone, blackened by an apparent fire. Slobbering drunk, he threw a small pouch of stones onto the counter, red splattered eyes boring into Brianne's. She was alone with him at the time. "Maaaagical st-stones! 'et them a'ay frum m-me!" he shrieked at her, and then fled leaving mud on the floor and black remains on the door frame.

She was uncertain as to where the man found the stones, but soon discovered the purpose of these so called magical stones. At first, she was terribly excited, realising how such a wonderful find could change her life! What kind of powers would she have? The ability to make waves, create sculptures of ice, bend fire to her every thought? Such power was useful, dangerous and incredibly thrilling. It was what she had been seeking all her life. The actual powers of the Shimmery Blue and Orange stones were and continue to be a source of great frustration, anger and depression for her.

Bwahaha there it is.

Your stones are pretty limited. If you want those limitations, then by all means, keep them. But, you could loosen up on the restrictions that your stones have. For instance, your violet one doesn't have to be just once per person. I mean, those few effects (heat, floating, and transmission telekenesis) couldn't really be used in a way that could give you a disadvantage or an ability to godmod, even if you were able to move somewhat while floating, and even if it did work on a person more than once. Those wouldn't have serious drawbacks at all, I would think.

Oh, and one more thing:


This stone levitates when held by its user.

O RLY?

Other than that, it's a great post.

Oops! I definitely meant that the PERSON levitates, not the stone. My bad! I blame this on too much rum.

And as for the limitations, I made them that way on purpose. You see, Brianne is the kind of girl who wants something out of everything. If it doesn't have a purpose, then it isn't worth it. She's gifted with these stones, and the way she sees it, they don't do hardly ANYTHING for her. Its a source of amusement for me to see her struggle. Its a character development thing, because this is also sometimes how she sees people. So for now, I think I'm going to keep it the way it is, but it might expand slightly once she quits being such a jerk. Is that alright?

Dustyn

Of course it's all right. It's your character, after all, like I've said.
I'm not going to change anything that you want, I was just letting you know for your own benefit. If you want it that way, keep it. :D

Your character is fine. Otherwise I wouldn't have messaged you about it. ;]

Just go read the OoC thread and post your character sheet in there. You'll know what to do then.
