I cannot accept that offer my dear friend. The ramifications of such an action could lead to unintended consequences of an extinction level event. I cannot in good conscience perform such a selfish act.
What, Lucifer Morningstar from DC is based on Satan. Prometheus from Greek mythos also inspired the origin of Satan, the fallen entity. Lucifer basically brought light (basically 'fire', knowledge, enlightenment) to the Mortals and was punished for it, however why he did it? Out of kindness or self gain? Also there's this not so impossible theory about an alien that gave Humans knowledge against the orders of its superiors.
It's how I based my Lucius Lux, He's always scheaming something, Iessui Nazarus is based on Jesus,/Iesus/Isus, but with a different, not religious twist and Arael the Almighty Smither in comparison. While Iessui was teaching mortal scum, Arael was giving them a global bath, comprised with thunderstorms while Lucius used the mortals to gain more power than his brothers, as the Creator usualy never interfere, unless in a Morgan Freeman like ways for his own amusement.
Wishes and Miracles are Iessui's thing, he always bestow mortals with wine, fish and chips and whatnot. Arael never ever granted any even if he could. He usually uses them for stupid things, such as miracle-ing a joint, a half liter of cold beer, get in a fight with a music theme in the background and shit like that. Lucious if he did, most likelly tricked the poor sap in the proces.
Yaweh was originally a member of a Canaanite pantheon before the people who would one day become the Jews conquered them and coopted the god. Specifically he was a war god. Hence why pretty much the entirety of the Old Testament and the Torah are a series of poorly thought out laws, wars, and genocides.
There was a god whose name I forget who was also part of the same pantheon. Said God betrayed the king god of that Pantheon. Now this is where the interesting/blasphemous bits come.
This traitor God is heavily connected to the Morning and Evening Star, AKA Venus. See Venuses orbit causes it to disappear behind the sun for a period of time, usually three days, before reappearing as the other.
Because of this the traitor god was said to have been killed and sent to the underwolrd before returning back to life in three days time.
This god is assumed to not only be the inspiration behind the mythology surrounding Satan, but also Jesus's resurrection. In fact, Jesus is also referred to as "A bright Morning Star".
So literally speaking, Jesus is also Lucifer both in the literal translation of "Lucifer" and in mythical origins.
Unless of course you take the Bible as fact then nothing I said is true and it doesn't matter unless you wanna wave a cross in my face and call me an evil devil worshiper.
Puh lease. I use to joke on tghe now rare occasions I go to church (weddings and funerals mostly lol) that if I enter a thunder will strike me. I am raised in Chatolic tradition but I myself do not believe in 'God' as a being who need our worshipping. I do believe in an Absolute being, a Creator, that look us live, grow, love... while not interfering with the affairs of mortals. That was my greatest inspiration for that segment of my story.
As for Jesus, I see it more as duality, two opposing yet close related forces in contrast.
You aren't the only person to read that Aro. I live in the bible belt in the U.S. I keep my atheistic ideas secret for the most part, folks don't to kindly to my sort around here. Better to cover my ass when I'm talking to people who I actually like.
About Lucifer: Lucifer used to be just one of the names of the planet Venus ("the Star of the Morning"), and originally lacked any evil connotation. There were people, even Christian people, even priests and bishops, whose name was Lucifer...
The evil connotations of the name Lucifer came from the association between the planet Venus and sexy deities like Venus, Aphrodite, Astarte, Astarot, Isthar and Inanna (all of them largely either versions of the same deity or at least inspired on the same source...). Since sex was deemed as evil, the sex goddess was assimilated to the Devil...
As for Satan, his origin is different. He was an angel; not a fallen angel, but a faithful servant of God, whose job was to act as the accuser in God's court (hence he was an enemy of humans, but not of God). He was later turned into a demon at the same time God got increasingly nicer traits...
The origin of Yahweh is kinda difficult to track, since the Hebrews used to be an small nomadic group that didn't write about their religion or history for a long time, and more advanced, powerful societies didn't bother writing about them, but we do know that they were already known as the "Bedouins of Yahweh" in Egypt, and that, after entering in Caanaan, Yahweh sorta fused with the great god El (Elohim is the plural of El).
Eh, here in HR our church is everywhere, like the mafia. God and Croatians fuck yeah mentality and all that bullshit, but on those occasions I do wander in a church mostly the local one, incidentally, I really have a hearty laugh at the people I see there.
He sure did dude. He wrote detailed notes on all his characters. Personalities, quirks, tendencies and habits. I miss the guy. He’s busy anymore that I barely see him. There are mornings where I can see him getting in his car and before I can even get my slippers on, he’s gone. Guy works two jobs now to pay for his upcoming college.
Hey BT, I gots a question. How big is Jorge in terms of height and mass? Is he Hoss Delgato “big” (Grimm Adventures Of Billy and Mandy), is he Reinhardt “big” (Overwatch), or is he Andre Of Astora “big” (Dark Souls)
Gentlemen, I have officially confirmed that I am a masochist and want to die slowly. “How do you know?” You maybe asking yourselves. Well I’m watching a movie called “The Nutcracker: The Untold Story”. And yeah, every minute I watch is devouring a year off my life.
It was very gross, Jester. But I’m all better now. I’m watching a Christmas Carol with Patrick Stewart.
Also as a side note, I will post for your character a little later. Sense Prad retreated to his room, we’ll kill some time with Jorge and then we’ll transition to a later hour where Roda stops by Prad’s room. This part of the RP is mainly a down time deal. Take this opportunity for yourselves to get immersed in the story. Ask questions, explore, expand upon your characters. Especially you Jester. I want to know how Prad is connected to this “Gray man”. After all Prad doesn’t seem very fond of the apparition who follows him.
It wouldn’t be shoving exposition Jester, if you give us the context we need. A certain situation doesn’t need an entire blog to understand something. Either way I haven’t forgotten about Prad. We’re just killing some time until I’m ready to transition.
Nah, the italian text is basically a draft of his past. And, he didn't. He was possessed. I can guess you know wht the man in the wall did the first time he walked a mile in poor Prad's body to those he looked at.
Thanks Jester, but to be fair, I wasn’t certain of my conclusion of his base line premise. I just know that Armata is beyond skilled at reading between lines and can piece small details together from a few choice words. Honestly you should pat yourself on the back Jester. Your dialogue was strong, yet just vague enough that I had my assumptions. I just couldn’t be sure.
But I do know that Armata has learned to value an individual life due to his love Deidre. If Armata sees strength in something, he won’t watch it rot away like he’s been. So keep that in mind. Prad has now been put on a special list.
Well, you can thank the countless blocks of text and Warframe for that one. I love writing like that, seriously. It's fun, cryptid.
Ahh, there lies the challenge. Prad can see it, considering his relentless attempt to please those around him with the little he can bring. The man in the wall, however...he has seen a lot. And I mean A LOT. Trying to show him the monster kind can change is going to be a monumental challenge. He has seen but the darkest of the beasts in the past. RIght now, he sees nothing but a fallacy to their heartfelt attempt ot mend the grievous, grievous wounds of the pld conflicts.
Well unfortunately good sir, or is it “good fool”? Eitherway I’m not a Warframe fan, so I don’t get the reference there. (Granted It isn’t because I dislike Warframe, I just never got into it. I recognize the fan base and that it looks fun as hell, so the devs are obviously bringing their A-Game. But it just didn’t interest me enough to get invested.)
Fair enough, mate. But yea, they do bring their all into this, it's respectable, especially in the cesspool of games contreversies nowaday.
EditL Either is fine, but people tend to gravite to the latter, the bells pretty much remove any hesitation.
Edit 2: Seems I have knack for forgetting to put all of my thoughts in this. But, anyway. The man in the wall, you might want to double check that bit about the term of his and Prad's little agreement. Spoiler: Prad isn't his real name.
Oh I know dude. Like I said, I personally am not invested in the game, because it did not “capture” me, so to speak. But that doesn’t mean I dislike it. The gameplay videos are fun to watch and I can definitely see the love and attention the devs have poured into the game. It’s fast paced run-n-gun mixed with RPG strategy. A concept easily fucked. Trust me guy, I’m from the age of old.
Mario was my breakfast, Zelda was my lunch, Ninja Gaiden was my dinner, Castlevania was my dessert and DOOM was the porn I hid from my mom. As games go on, they become less about the experience and more about “how little we can put in, yet charge full price”. Free to play games like Warframe are rare finds. And I applaud the devs. It’s just not my swig of liquor.
Honestly all I know about kingdom hearts is that it's the love child of Disney and final fantasy. A strange combination especially when you think about how the brick are the family friendly pacifists of Disney supposed fight at all?
A chimera-type creature from a show I know nothing about. Consumes people, immune to magic. I mean... sure that's threatening, but the Heartless are universe busters. Heartless do the whole consume people too, and than turn them into more Heartless.
I mean, this Zanaffar from what I'm reading is no threat to the Heartless, it can't use magic so it can't damage the Heartless without using some special ability, and it certainly isn't wielding a Keyblade so it can't destroy them, nor does it have the capabilities to use one in the first place.
Sure, the Heartless aren't as threatening looking, they aren't flashy, they don't go in guns-blazing, they start small, make the world to sick to go on and than it just... dies.
Zanaffar are essentially creatures of endless grrowh and potential. Their hide is tougher than dragon scale, making them immune to physical attack, and as you said earlier they are immune to magic. They are capable of didcharging high powered energy beams from their mouths and growing mouths on tentacles in order to discharge more lasers as well as being quite capable of subterranean movement.
When they kill someone, they consume their minds, bodies, and souls, adding that persons skills, memories and strength to their own. What's more is that the Zanaffars seen in the show are only days old. Weeks at the most. They hadn't even scratched the surface what a Zanaffar is truly capable of and they still rendered the full might of the most powerful militaries in the world helpless.
It is even implied that if they consume a sufficient amount of knowledge in magic, particularly knowledge pertaining to high end black magic, then a Zanaffar may even find a work around to their inability to use magic.
If nipped in the bud, a Zanaffar is nothing compared to the heartless, but only a single weapon can even hurt one and that weapon doesn't really cooperate unless used by a particular bloodline (So the heartless have zero chance of harming one.) If given time, a single Zanaffar would not only be able to destroy a universe, but outright eat one.
Well I mean, Heartless don't have minds, bodies, or souls, only driven by pure instinct. Yes I know, they techinally have bodies, its stupid, but that's how canon goes.
Also Heartless attack the 'Heart' of their targets rather than anything like a hide or anything. Their attacks could pierce the hide because Darkness is bullshit and they're basically ignoring armor to damage the soul or in this case, the Heart, they're trying to steal the Zanaffar's emotions and sense of self, which if stolen turns them into a Heartless and if the Zanaffar has a strong Soul and a strong Heart than it will turn into a Nobody, which is a whole different can of worms.
They can sense Hearts from just about anywhere, they don't need to rest, they don't need to eat, drink, or have any problems with poisons or diseases. Their Corridors of Darkness allow them to teleport just about anywhere in the world at any time. Even if it could destroy a Heartless, it would just reform in the Realm of Darkness and port back in. Mundane weapons just phase through them, its all nonsense.
I would be more terrified of Heartless, because at-least for this Zanaffar I can try to run away. You can't escape the Heartless, you can't hide, and even if you do, they don't even have to kill everybody to devour the Heart of a universe, they just have to find it and nom on it and boom! Universe collapses on itself. They're utter bullshit, and they're also in a children's game...
Merry late Christmas to whoever celebrates it. I'm here, just don't have anything smart to say or anything at all. Seems I lost my inspiration as I can't write anything but a fight scene, I already filled half a notebook of nothing but these yet my story did not move an inch.
On a side not I'm replaying the shit of my MGR:R and I love it.
And definitely, year after year my writing diminished. From procrastination, lack of ideas, boredom to loss of inspiration. I do have fresh ideas, it's I just don't use them, like for example giving sentience tol Masamune and Murasama, Aro's old swords and make them willingly into Mamono, making them something between HF blades, Derflinger and Cursed Blades.
Oh man, what a shit day in PA. Rain, rain, rain. Whatever, I just got home with some good food from my local deli, a case of beer and I’m booting up Skyrim right now. Time to relax, play a good game, eat good food and play a good game.
I was gonna let you decide. I’m not sure what Prad’s interests are in this topic he’s asking about. Plus this library was established before Armata was made the Covenant leader. So I figured he has been there long enough to know.
If I made an RP about the Heartless mamono, what do you think would garner more people?
An expedition to the Shard of Darkness, or a wave based invasion of the Heartless before they were transformed into mamono by K'eth into like I dunno... the Reptile Kingdom and Aro's realm? As well as the material plane and Wonderland.
I could do some cool stuff (I think) with the second and than neatly go off into the first RP. But the second would require a lot more set-up and getting ingrained into other people's plots, while the first I can just grab people who want to do stuff and run with it.
Probably, but you'd probably have to nerf them a bit. Between their intangibility to physical weapons, their high resistance to magic and the fact that you need a specific type of 'holy' magic to just banish them back, not too many would find fun to just have them respawn mere moment after throwing everything to find out they didn't even kill them should they come to fight.
Not so much as resistance to magic as that they just don't die permanently too it. The timer's an entire day until they reform and I'm not planning for the invasion-style RP to last any more than 6 hours.
Also they don't get banished when they're destroyed by the Keyblade/Sufficent amount of Light magic, they die, finished, caputs for them forever. Can't even get resurrected.
I mean for the expedition, it could be fun to see a potential wasted effort by the Order in an attempt to put a foot-hold in the Shard of Darkness, but like you said, that would get real boring, real quick.
And I can't just nerf them to the ground as then they just wouldn't be Heartless and that's no fun either. There's also the fact that some of the Heartless rely on their selective resurrective immortality.
I mean 'maybe' I could let them be destroyed by physical weapons but their bodies just reform quicker than if they were destroyed by magic/magical weapons.
Nah man, I didn't say to the ground. I get the brawl with a powerful entity. That is fun. I'm just saying that some people may go the 'op' button like it was on so many rps before. Trust me, some people may do that. I don't know any around here that actively do that, but, I've seen the results, it saps the whole fun.
I’m not sure if I’d even fit into that RP Agent. My guy (Marcus) is a top tier warrior, no magic to speak of. He has powers from his bloodline, but he can’t use them easily or at will. Can’t really see him making a dent on these heartless if they reform from physical attacks, unless he is just a designated wrecking ball to create time for others.
I hear you Flame. I’d tell you to join our RP but you already gave your thoughts on it I believe. Eitherway I got stuff brewing for the future. No big combat stuff, just light hearted fun for our characters to interact and be themselves. The Jaghund household will be holding holiday specials and random goofiness thanks to Cyndwella’s spontaneous attitude.
Yeah, I did. Forjod would be pretty useless. Rix, Xinderas and Dravela would be the main brawlers. That Jaghund special sounds interesting though, I'll keep an eye out for that. I may finally bring Forjod's mother Mythria into the picture.
Go for it dude! Now these specials won’t be for a while as me, BT and Jester are still on the Pramool RP (Scorn’s) But we only have two major acts left. I’m sure Jester and BT have some future stuff up their sleeves too.
Like I said, these specials will range from holidays to whatever hell I whip up. Could be birthdays, baby showers, holidays or even just Marcus shouting to old friends. Lunalight is an ever growing place.
Every year Cyndwella works hard to organize Lunalight and expand it into the swamps that surrounds it. Once Marcus is done with this Pramool business, he’ll continue to work outside building Lunalight into a thriving place for Mamono and Humans. So thorough traffic is welcome. Just keep in mind, Cyndwella warms up to people slowly and is a shit starter at heart, thanks to her terrible past. Her pokes and prods are to taken with a grain of salt, she warms up to everyone in time.
Well I’m in charge of this RP now Jester. Scorn put a lot into this and I haven’t been doing a good job realizing the vision, but he’s moved on. So I’m gonna do my best to fill in the gaps. That said, if you have ideas for Prad, let me know.
Simply put, the finale thread that the three of you in has been going on for a long time. My stuff has gone basically nowhere since S9 hasn't responded in almost a month. I'm just worried you all might be burnt out once it's over.
There you go Flame. I’m stickin to it, Jester is too. I’m pretty sure BT has some future projects in mind. Jeiel is gone, Doc is gone, S9, Snake and Aro are rare to see. So many gone, I ain’t leaving you guys.
We’re all in a slump. I was in a really bad place a while and things haven’t gotten any better. My eldest cat Dr.Gonzo passed the other week and my doctor confirmed on Tuesday that I have pneumonia. That’s life for you. I’ll look into Rep, just remember I’m hoisting an RP on someone else’s terms. Fortunately I got Jester and BT to back me on it.
Same. Before Gonzo it was my uncle. My uncle passed before Christmas, Gonzo in January, and then Tuesday was pneumonia awareness day for me.
Now I do want to make this clear, I’m not in danger. My doctor assured me I’ll be fine. I’m on medication and in front of a fireplace. He said I’ll be fine. It’s early stage shit, nothing alarming. But it still sucks that I cough constantly and I always feel cold. I just gotta ride the storm.
That means your coping mechanism kicked in and basically filtered all of that vapid excuse they call a movie as nothing more than white noise. Compared to that, having a staring contest with Chtutulu is a literal walk in the park.
They say alcohol is terrible for your liver, The Cat In The Hat movie with Mike Myers, is transplant levels of fuck. The ferryman of the River Of Styx sat beside me during the viewing and asked if I was “ready to go?!”
Hey look, NC was an idea. I heard it was bad, I know he reviews mostly bad things like the Angry Video Game Nerd. So I watched. Instant regret. Maybe I should watch shit things and post my reactions. I don’t know no more!
I have. Looks awesome. I do have my concerns though as Bethesda has been acting like a bunch of shits lately and Wolfenstein New Colossus wasn’t near as good as it’s predecessor.
With Doomguy’s new abilities and gear, I’m worried the difficulty will suffer for this. With all the dashing, grapplehook launching, over the shoulder grenade/flamethrower, there’s just so many ways to get out of tight areas. Granted it makes the game look wicked fun, and I’m sure it will succeed in making the player feel like a badass. But with this new arsenal of gear and abilities the trailer gameplay looked easy as hell. The guy playing was barely touched.
All these new ways to tackle a problem might ruin the difficult, which concerns me to how they’re going to supplement this if it is the case.
Scornfritter mentioned that. Though he didn’t say anything about a living doll during the RP. Is this something during the RP or after, big man? If it’s during the RP I’ll need to consult the wizard. If it’s after, no prob. Scorn said Armata is an unsung craftsman and build quite a lot with his hands. Perhaps we can set up the doll as one of Armata’s gifts to Jorge for his time.
Yeah, the desire that religious people have to shove their particular faith into everything possible annoys me too. I swear a general or admiral in the army can't sneeze in public without a chaplain leading everyone present prayer.
Oh? You believe in religious freedom and part of the reasons you joined the armed forces is defend this ideal and give to those don't have it? Well fuck you! Right now is JEEZUS TIEM!!!
Damn right Rep. Again, I don’t want to sound like an anti-religious guy. I’m American through and through. I believe everyone is entitled to their beliefs and deserve to practice it freely. However, I can’t stand it when it becomes a, “you must abide” deal. I’ve been to enough funerals in my time, where the priest spits their jaded crap at the people attending.
“God has a plan, god wants this, their sacrifice was necessary, thou are but a cog in god’s Grand design”. Shit like that. Rather than honor those we lost you listen to some jerkoff fresh out of priest school spouting superstitious promises and forgetting why we are here in the first place. Screw your invisible man living in the sky! I’m here for my grandmother that passed on! I guess you want me to hand over my hard earned money in a dish as an offering to god while I’m at it?!
For an all-powerful sky daddy, he certainly needs money. All-knowing, all-seeing, all-powerful, yet he just can’t handle money. I worship you more than I do an ideal of god Rep. At least I can chat with ya! If god exists, may he strike me down right now.... SEE?! Nothing. Oh wait, my balls itch, and there’s a cramp in my leg.... Ah, you’re just fuckin with me King.
Not Jeiel sadly. But me. As an all knowing being once said, "The corpses have shifted and headstones have been pushed aside, to make room for the new..." I'm here to tell you that the final Armata Rp's are about to begin.
Yeeeeeeeees. I have arisen to see how everyone is doing as well as push my own agenda. I now have a new computer. Thus I will be more active on the site. Along with this I here to let everyone know my final Armata Rp is starting shortly. I feel I have teased and anticipated this story long enough and it is time to delve into another world, in order to save our own.
Lets just assume you did. Ibs has already stated he needs a break, understandably so too. He is a massive part of most player's lore here. Not surprising he'd be tired. Thus not ready to do the adoption Rp right now.
So WE will press on and begin the Armata final arc. Besides I'd rather you have something to help you along this path, BTR. It's going to be rough. And don't worry about being "as epic as possible". Just bring your A game and have fun. In the mean time, refresh those pages in a little while, I'm getting started on the opening now. I'll do the title post, then a starting post, then everyone can answer as they see fit. Right now we are on the first half, act 1. This act is specifically BTR and Jester.
I do. But I don't mind Hound shooting me information when I'm logged on. I'll get my post in a little bit from now. You don't need to respond for now BTR, if your busy. With Tirush stopping by to check on Imperia, we have plenty of Rp material till you're ready.
