General:
E-mail (OPTIONAL): You already has it. :)

Alt Name: Ravion

A brief description of your character: Above average height with tan skin, a rugged face and many other things which adorn his body. Festive colors cover him(greens, purples, blue, red, and white.) all over, bells and coins attached to the sashes and bandanna he wears.

Why/How is your character in Skuldhellir: As a nomad, this gypsy has been wandering all over. Possibly, this could be a very bad place for him to have wandered across, but only time will tell.


Magic (OPTIONAL):
---Max Preps (1-10): 1

---Schools:
Gypsy specific magic - 5 (Will describe down farther)



Strengths:
---Natural:
- Quick on his feet


---Learned:
- Acrobatic.
- Exceptional entertainer.
- Fortune telling(Tarot cards)
- Multilingual (Common, French, German, Spanish, and English)
- Good liar and storyteller.
- A general wisdom of the world around him.
- Advertises his wares/goods/services well.


---Supernatural:
- Gypsy curses (This is where the magic above applies!
--- All gypsy curses are instant cast, however certain requirements must be met in order for Ravion to cast them.
--- These curses can range from a great many things. Examples are ones such as minor inconveniences like a stuttering speech or a bothersome itch. On the other end of the spectrum, he can curse those to be blind, paralyze them, or even cause death after a period of time.
--- The only way Ravion can cast these is generally the same, though can be different and will be explained.
Way #1: Ravion is dying. As he lays dying he has the ability to cast a curse upon the one(s) who killed him before death sweeps him away.
Way #2: Family is extremely important to gypsies, and as such he has the ability to avenge their deaths with the ability to curse the ones who caused that relative's death.
Way #3: Gypsies value clan members, too. If one i killed, he has the ability to lay a curse upon the one(s) responsible for the death.
Summary for those still confused: He's dying, a relative is dying, clan member is dying. The three ways for him to cast a curse.



Weaknesses:
- No combat abilities whatsoever. He cannot use a weapon, or even defend himself with one. He cannot cast any spells besides gypsy curses.
- He wears no armor
- He's loud, making him a prime target for any more unintelligent creatures as they will notice him first
- Can be obnoxious, too, which may cause people to dislike him.

There's a gypsy wagon down near the farm! It has an NPC living in it, but still.

Remember, you can't have a 5 for gypsy magic; it has to be 1 since your max preps are 1. I see where the confusion came from, since the curses aren't like normal magic at all! I'm going to consider them their own strength, rather than a magic in this magic system. :D

STRENGTHS:
- Quick on his feet: 1
- Acrobatic: 1
- Exceptional entertainer: 0
- Fortune telling: 0
- Multilingual: 1
- Good liar and storyteller: 1
- A general wisdom of the world around him: 1
- Advertises his wares/goods/services well: 0-1
- Gypsy curses: 2-4 (depending on the curse in question, naturally. How often is it something like itching spell compared to death? Does he choose?)

WEAKNESSES
- No combat abilities whatsoever: 4
- He wears no armor: 1
- He's loud: 1
- Can be obnoxious: 0

Totals:
6-10 vs. 6

Can you go into more detail about the gypsy curse? I think he's technically fine though! I'd sorta like to see one more little weakness--maybe for flavor more than anything else.

Yes, he does choose. More than likely it will be severe effects he chooses to curse people with. Blindness, paralysis, etc all the way to death will be seen surely.

Extra weakness: Oblivious to danger

I'm still confused about the magic system used here. Is the gypsy magic without preps? And if so, what's the 1 prep for in magic schools?

If you do use preps, that 1 in max preps should be bumped up or the 5 in gypsy magic should be bumped down.

I assume it's without preps, and he just didn't know how to express it in the normal magic system--so I just made it its own strength rather than trying to squeeze it into the normal magic system. XD

Oblivious to danger it worth 1-2 points to me, so he still looks fine!

Yes, it is without preps, as Heimdall has pointed out. It was confusing for me to try to find a way to express it so I just did something that I hoped would get the point across. xD

No one's saying anything so I'm just going to assume no one has any problems with this char? ;P

I was really confused about the curses initially, but since that's been cleared up I have no issues wit this gypsy. *thumbs up*
