clar380 : Do you know what just crossed my mind? RPG, what does it satnd for? Im sorry for not knowing but I didn't think to ask until now.
Please, Clar as well as the rest of you. Don't apologize for asking a question. Everyone is in their rights of asking about stuff they don't know. At least - such is my humble opinion.
RPG means, as Perodious says, a Role Playing Game, meaning that you for example play the role of a made up character.
Please - feel free to ask anything you desire - and that goes for all of you. Questioning is the only way of gaining knowledge - Those are my words of wisdom for today
EDIT: Okay - as i spoke of in my previous post, i'd like some profiles about our RPG-characters.
Therefore, i'm making a profile scheme eveyone can copy/paste and fill out. Just so everyone is left with their desired character - which was the original idea to start with (With explanations), thus giving the authors a better insight.
Name: Your characters real name (e.g. Paul, Bill)
Nick/Aka: Your characters nick/also-known-as (e.g. The Beast)
Race: Human or something else.
Gender: Male or female?
Age: Your characters age?
Hair: Your characters hair color (Add in hairstyle if you desire)
Eyes: Your characters eye color (e.g. Clar being this Shadow form, might grant him purple eyes?)
Height: How tall are your character? (Both metres and feet is appreciated)
Weight: How much does your character weight? weight (Both kilos and pounds is appreciated.)
Build: How's your characters body build? (e.g. Slender or strongly build)
Notes: A horn in your forehead? Wings?
Melee: How good are your character in hand to hand combat? (Swords, knives etc.)
Ranged: How good are your character in ranged combat (Guns, bows etc.)
Force: Does your character have any special abilities? (e.g psychic, demonic or magical powers.)
Skills: Does your character have any special skills? (e.g. knowledge of explosives, fast fingers etc.)
Strength: How strong are your character? (e.g. Being big an strong he might lack agility)
Dexterity: How fast and agile are your character? (Opposite of above)
Weakness: Even Superman got a flaw - which is yours?
Experience: How experienced are your character? (e.g. A tough veteran, or a young rookie learning his way?)
Traits: What are your char's charcteristics like? (e.g. Calm/considered/temperemental/kind/hateful/shy/humorous etc.)
Quirks: Does your character have some peculiarities/oddities? (e.g. Likes blood, smokes, "bad/weird habits" etc.)
Flaws: Does your character have any personal flaws? (e.g. Fear, short fuse, nervous, traumas, bad concentration, etc.)
Note; if you have got ideas, you're welcome to make a suggestion!
Furthermore: If you have got any questions, feel free to ask.
When you make your character, try not to make it too overdimensioned (i.e. add some flaws, keep your character balanced; both raw strength and agility/melee and ranged combat often don't mix together.). Balance between both all of the characteristics and other players are essential for a reasonable game.
I'd suggest keeping everything at a minimum, thus allowing your character to evolve and develop throughout the story.
NPC's (non-player characters) such as 'the Dark Lord Behemoth' may be kept overpowered, godlike and nearly immortal - just for the thrill.
