PostSubject: Proserpine   Thu Jul 08, 2010 9:54 pm

E-mail (OPTIONAL):
(edited at request of player)

Alt Name:
Proserpine (changed from Alicia E.)
A brief description of your character:
She was somewhat of a cook back in Northkeep, and before that she'd been.. Something in a place far behind. Since then she'd become exiled from Northkeep and had left it.

There is information yet to be gathered on the time between then, and now.
Why/How is your character in Skuldhellir:
Wanderer, but then again it could be chance, or perhaps not. Maybe there is no such thing as.. 'Chance' Only Fate.

4. Very strong stomach: 2
5. Scentless: 2
6. Monster form: 5 (I will score this at a flat 5 for now, but would you kindly put up a smaller sheet of additional strengths/weaknesses Ali gains when she is in this form?)

7. Fishing/hunting: 1
8. Cooking/gathering: 1
9. Two languages: 0
10. Good fighter: 2
11. Tracker: 2

14. Knows hunting commands: 0

15. Resistance to cold: 2
16. Long life: 0

1. Poor eyes: 2
2. Compulsive: 1

10. Over-assertive: 0

Strengths Total: 28 (+summoning)
Weaknesses Total: 11

Extraordinarily unbalanced, I'm afraid. But that's alright--add some more consequential weaknesses, take off or weaken a strength or two; usually does the trick!

Now, about her summoning! Does she have any limits to what she can conjure? Will the items always be permanent until their page is destroyed? Summoning/conjuration is kind of a touchy subject here, because it'd be so easy to completely overturn the setting accidentally with that kind of power. >< Like, you said conjuring food would be pretty inconsequential to her--imagine if a plot based on famine came along? Her skill wouldn't be taken into account, and she would probably single-handedly be capable of nixing the hardship--if not for the whole town, at least for friendly PCs, even if their players might want to participate in that plot.

So if you could set up some parameters and limitations to that skill, that'd be great. Maybe she can't summon real consumables--potions, foods, drinks and so forth could maybe be drawn and conjured, but eating or drinking them would yield no effect besides, perhaps, providing the taste. And maybe, unless she puts in a lot of her energy, her other summonings only last for a little while before they disappear. Real permanence might take a lot of effort, or something.

Hmmm...I would say, maybe the rather warm weather and the whole lot rain is not doing good for her?
She does need more weaknesses I think. Espeacily something more phyiscal?
Or that she needs ALOT food. And thats why she is food aggresive?
Well, obviously, a bit change...
And whatever Ed said to summoning x3

Well lets see.

Oh yeah! I did forget about that.

Added weaknesses.

  • Easy heat exhaustion
  • Fast metabolism
  • No modesty
  • Seasick easily
  • Claustrophobic
  • Greedy
  • Pushy (To get her way)

Now about her summoning, something horse sized is about the limit, so long as something is summoned its draining energy from her.

She cannot heal with these (it will make her very sick), she also waists double energy trying to make food with it. If in a sketchbook and the ink begins to run it will also destroy it so likely cannot do it in the rain or in the water. Using her power also drops her immune system. It lets her get sicker easier for longer periods of time.
So she will rarely use it. (Because who likes being ill)

Removed strengths:

  • Digging

Strengths and weaknesses in Monster form.

  • Improved strength
  • Improved senses
  • Sharp claws/teeth

  • Draining
  • temporary loss of self
  • aggressive
  • weighty (Shes fat yo.)
  • Short attention span
  • food motivated

Its very draining to go into a full form, and when shes there sometimes she gets 'stuck' there. Staying in it for days at a time. While it could be able to be used as a puller of things or mount of sorts she can be rather dangerous in this. The first change of the month warrants an aggressive change. And her eyesight is only marginally better in this.

Hmmm...I think I can say a yes to that. :3
The monster form gives some good and bad stuff, hm?
Maybe cutting a strength, and I bet others say yes to at once, I'm though happy with it :3

Thanks for the changes, Aliderps! If I may say so, though, on the subject of her summoning, I still think she should have to put in some extra effort to get her summons to be permanent.

Let us look at the new additions, then:

1. Heat exhaustion: 2
2. Fast metabolism: 1
3. No modesty: 0
4. Easily seasick: 1
5. Claustrophobic: 2
6. Greedy: 1
7. Pushy: 0

Added to original score: 18

1. Digging: -2
2. Monster form: (being tallied separately) -5


Added to original score: 24

Now let's look at her monster form:
1. Improved strength: 2
2. Improved senses: 2
3. Natural weaponry: 1

Total: 4

1. Monster form is draining/temporary loss of self: 3
2. Aggressive: 1
3. Weighty: 1
4. Short attention span: 0
5. Food motivated: 1
6. Gets stuck in this form sometimes: 1

Total: 7


Edit: EDWARDS ARE DERPS. Got some numbers wrong. Still approved and accepted though!
