Well Jester, I saw this vid and had no intention of posting much tonight because I just recently got home from work. But the vid was so awesome and kindred to your character that I felt obligated to send it to ya.
I thought “THATS MA BOY, JESTER! Master of deception, tricks, unseen, misdirection, unknown, unexplained. The man who walks between realms and space. Unbound by our limitations. Time is but a word to the MockingJester. It’s concept foreign to him. He exists where only the gods could. His eyes upon the glow of life, the still grin not only on his face, but his soul. Not evil, but mischievous. The Jester seeks not destruction, only to toy.”
You know, it's hilarious how spot on you're basically being with that little window I use to filter my way here.
He's a storyteller, a clown with a visage perpetually happy. Those who meet him, kindred as they be, a jolly joke to speak. A harmless prank to act. One to sit by, tales of triumph, cautionary riddles. A sweet and plump assortment for the people willingly partaking in his false idling, a lesson for them who unravels it through the eyes of one at the heavens, yet self-bound with the rest. To others, an easy way to divert from catastrophies, be it wholly, or whimsical.
Some, however, cling to their vanity, their hubris, blinded by their state of being. To them...
An fateweaver, a jester grinning with the reflected hubris of those damned. To meet him as less, content with themselves. harrowing pranks upon them. Bound to the fate they sowed, vain to the warnings. Bitter and stale nourishment for they holier-than-thou. A last messgae of damnation as the trickster plays and pokes at one's fortune. His beloning. His reputation. HIs...life. Doomed to stalk in the valley of death, no matter what road may they seek, for they walked in the road of the damned the moment they sneered at the entity, all too human, as they are. Their death shrieks, a haunted warning to those found successor. His mask, whichever they want it to be...
What can I say Jester? I have an eye for character purpose and interruption. Your character is not god-kin but still able to alter certain realities to whatever ends he desires. But his ultimate characteristic is that he suffered prior to his obtaining of power. He was but a fool in service, but now he is a fool by choice. His decisions are now his own. And he punishes all he deems deserving much like Jorge.
Well you already pointed out that “The Jester” in his past was a literal fool. A downtrodden peasant man forced to entertain fat sloven kings and noblemen. Paid nothing for his debasement and shoved aside the second his routine was over. A sad tale indeed. Yet somewhere along the way “The Jester” gained some kind of power that allowed to manipulate reality and slide between dimensions at his very own will.
The Jester is a being who houses god-kin abilities but chooses to use them in a mischievous and mostly harmless manner. Yet, mess with him, and you could very well find yourself in an abysmal world devoid of life. The Jester is easily one of the most interesting characters I’ve come across. So much yet to learn of him, but enough had been observed to grasp his character and intentions.
Actually, that’s what he plays right now. He’s what people think they see in him. The old fool out of necessity was another type, one who played not with the strings. He was more about cutting them with a sanguine sense of comedy. A sadistic kind of clown back then.
I realized something about the summon rp and backtracked a bit back to when Spec's character commented on guns and vehicles. basically guns are allowed since i realized that weaponry cant exactly kill summons.
"Hm... A bit. We ask of you to do the Agreement Contracts for many reasons. There will also be benefits to users that only use Agreement Contracts and will be broken once a Force Contract is formed. You also may take firearms into the other world but not vehicles. And no destructive weapons such as explosives and fire. Resources you find you may keep, trade or sell to us. And finally, you may only use Agreement Contracts on intelligent beings. At the moment, we can't pick and choose which beings get Agreement Contracts or Force Contracts. We have been looking into cloning but so far more testing is needed. Oh, and make sure not to shoot any other users unless it's in self-defense. If not, we will know."
"After the rest of the introduction is done." He said as he adjusted his tie.
"Now items. We will just go over basics. So to start, Summon Contracts." He said as he took out a piece of paper with various information on it. "Place this on a Summon, commonly on the arm, to attempt to an Agreement Contract. If the creature allows it, the contract should disappear and a marking that you're free to customize will appear whenever the contract was placed and will look something like a tattoo. If the creature resists than the contract will burn up and disappear, wasted. As for a Force Contract, after defeating a creature, they will disappear and leave behind an incomplete contract. All you have to do is bring it back here, use the Contract Completer which will request needed materials to make the contract whole again. Once that is done the Summon will belong to you. If you have no desire for a Summon you defeated though, just leave the incomplete contract and it will reform to its original form. Do not tear up an incomplete contract though, that will permanently kill whatever you defeated."
"Then there's Giga. A very useful substance that can be found in Giga Fruit and Giga Ore. It's used to either increase the power of your Summons or to transmute with other resources to get new substances such as healing potions and energizers. Your gauntlets will have a list of known resources in the world and if you discover any new ones we would greatly be interested in it."
"Your gauntlets will hold all of your Summons information and allow you to bring them to you whenever you please. It also has features for trading Summons, release unwanted Summons, and a battle system where two or more users can have a brawl and bet money and resources. And don't worry if your Summon gets defeated, it will retreat back to your gauntlet to rest. As for defensive measures, there is a taser, force field, and an emergency force teleport back to the Rift which can be activated any time but will instantly activate when the force field is destroyed."
"And finally, the facilities. There's the Gacha. Basically, you take Gambit, a resource that's found in the world, and use them to gamble for powerful Summons that are pre-acquired. We've made it exclusive to Gambit too so you don't end up losing all of your resources by accident.
Then the Evolution Station. Some Summons can reach a higher form, not only earning them more power but new abilities and altering their current ones. You may notice attire and personality changes after an evolution so be warned. It also requires certain materials like the Contract Completer.
"The Training Area and shop are self-explanatory and the Alchemy Lab is where you take Giga and try to make potions. Now that is all done with..." The floor next to him would open up and a counter would rise up with multiple gauntlets and large high-grade backpacks.
"Everyone take one of each. Inside the backpack are two Gambit crystals, enough to get you two Summons from the Gacha. Don't be shy. Once done there, use your gauntlets and choose one area to head to. There will be a list of available areas and a list of upcoming areas."
(Gacha will be randomized. Already got the randomizer up.)
This was the rest of the introduction. Has a lot of important information...
Come now. This is no arguing. Arguing is having two internet users throwing inflammatory names in the name of boosing their thin ego. This is merely two different opinions on the current station. Opinions between an undead count and a plane-walking clown.
“When suppertime came, the old cook came on deck sayin'
Fellas, it's too rough to feed ya.
At seven pm a main hatchway caved in, he said
Fellas, it's been good t'know ya.
The captain wired in he had water comin' in
And the good ship and crew was in peril.
And later that night when his lights went outta sight
Came the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.”
It was an inbetween movie. They're setting up for more. Not sure I like the direction we're going though. It's a nice metaphor for nuclear power and the various potential outcomes of genetic research, but it feels like we're leaving the old Jurassic Park behind.
Nah, he sort of followed Tirush around to watch her back when he went full haywire and went off on his own.
Edit: I realize that was all too brief for an explaination. Ima try again. Basically, her request for him to 'back' her up, he followed on that, at least until she ran off in a fit of rage. Then, his...let's say other self took over. Getting him to let Tirush lick his wounds clean has consequences, as you can see. He clawed his hand off from her energy, literally while turning from lightning to fire. And went on his own, searching for things to butcher.
Seems like we are a bit confused. Jorge seems to be outside with Alburn, not with Tirush. Armata fights with T. Prad is on the move. Of which, Jester. Prad gets the Twins. You can decimate them to your liking.
Hmmm....well you could try writing it in a different direction than you send things normally? Whether you hate it or love it, it's bound to help you think of some things you've not done before, and that could help motivate some new ideas to get you out of the block?
Nah man, The Fair made it, and though you kinda got busy it did technically make it lol.
In the case of the Nezon RP, I'll take responsibility for it. Life has kinda taken over for the past few months, and it seems with my absence alot has happened and everyone has left or gotten busy themselves =/. Maybe things will turn around when everyone gets free again?
S9: It's basically a concept used in comedic edict where a female character, most of the time a virgin of some sort would shout this sentence every time an opposite gender mistakenly makes an act on their person by accident. Thinking that the male wants to claim them, they'd shout the phrase 'just like an erotic doujin', mangas known for the increasingly blatant accidents trying to get the characters to have intercourse.
Rep: Welcome to my world. Kind of why I restraint myself from joining most times.
I feel you man and what's worse is that I'm going on my AT soon and I won't have any signal at all.
Fyi Rep. The visit to the Ibrahim household was supposed to be at the end of the RP but you kinda destroyed the town and derailed most of the RP that was going to take place there... Yeah man. Your entrance was cool but come on man! Don't destroy inhabited towns man.
She wasn't in Whitemarch and you reentered from the atmosphere and blew out all the widows in town man! That's cool though. Thats cool though, I'll just come up with something to better tie up that end.
I know you guys like honey badgers, because let's face it, honey badger don't give a fuck and the entire internet loves the honey badger for it, and the hellhound is one of KCs most popular works. So take a honey badger, a hellhound, and a rhinoceros sized sabertooth wolf lizard and smash them together.
From a fan stand point? Yes. In my opinion Star Wars is dead and at this point it is beyond salvation or saving. The folks in charge of Star Wars are complete SJW’s who are using this franchise as a megaphone to broadcast their ideology and agenda. Star Wars is now plagued with plot holes, retcons, bad writing, bad acting, Mary Sues and an unlikable Luke Skywalker. As far as I’m concerned, the best course of action is to treat Star Wars like a dog that bit ya. You love it, you know you don’t want to. But if it bit you once, it’ll do it again. Best to take it out back and shoot it.
From a business standpoint? No. Star Wars is a gold mine and there is no end to the amount of dumbasses who will go see anything related to the brand, and suck it up like a ravenous slut. Practically prints money. People will complain and shout, but in the end they gather like moths to the flame to watch it. It’s Star Wars.
I don't know enought about that sci-fi nor the relation between the two to reallt declare anything. But, given the profit generated by the latest star wars movies, I doubt they'd be willing to let it die.
Not exactly Hound. Solo was actually a loss in the box office. From what I heard they didn't make enough back in theatres to make back what they spent in production. Even the nostalgia wave is wave isn't enough to keep the current trends in star wars going. Especially with how bad the prequels were. The fact is the star wars fanbase was a bit jaded going into these new movies and the mentality was that these movies would have to be pretty good to make up for it. Instead we got some preachy, mary sue bullshit with more plot holes than bad fanfiction. The fact that the market is already flooded with movies riding the nostalgia train didn't help.
Word on the street is that Kathleen Kennedy, the president of LuacasArts, is in some pretty hot water with Disney because over this drop in profits. Apparently the woman thinks that strong female characters is somehow a unique concept despite the numerous examples of such characters throughout the sci-fi genre. Ellin Ripley and Sarah Connor were both dudes I guess.
It's not too late to save StarWars, but it's losing its value very quickly. EA hasn't been helping much either.
You also have to consider the other stuff: marketing, toys and that type of shit. I mean, the marketing that goes into a movie usually costs somewhere around what production cost, so that alone makes Solo a loss considering how horrendus it's marketing is.
Also Starwars might be dead movie wise, but the comics are pretty good and Dave Filoni is apperently making a new series.
Godzilla 2014 had 160 million dollar budget it made 529 million in the box office.
The first Star Trek had a budget of 150 million and it made 385.7 mill in theatres
Oh here's anotherone that Disney has its greedy claws in, Deadpool had a budget of 58 million and made 783.1 million in the box office.
LucasArts has pulled funding for all of the anthology starwars movies and is focusing entirely on the third in the SJW trilogy. It's both a desperate attempt to repair the damage, while simultaneously preparing to abandon ship if that movie fails. The fact is, Star Wars was already dealt an ugly wound by the prequel trilogy. The newcomers had a lot to prove and a lot to make up for, they've failed. So badly in fact that not even the nostalgia built by one of the franchises most beloved characters could get them to make a profit.
Let's not judge it too early King. From what I've heard the episodes will be the ones that were left unfinished from the earlier series. All we have right now is a trailer. Besides, Dave Filoni will be the driving force behind it iirc.
Oh no it'll probably be great, especially if all they're doing is just finishing the animation they did with the unfinished episodes. It's just funny that Disney is resorting to bringing TCW back just to try and placate SW fans after TLJ and Lucasfilm's continous PR nightmare.
I saw it, Rep. Watched it thirty times. Hope it won’t focus on the humies the entire movie, as it did the last. If they are any kind of smart, King Ghidorah will be the main enemy. It will be so strong that Godzilla, Rodan and Mothra team up.
Well Hound, as it stands Ghidorah is a extinction level event in and of himself. Those storms in the trailer, Ghidorah produces them simply by being present and they get large and fearsome enough to tear holes in the stratosphere.
At present I see the plot going as such. Rodan and Mothra wake up. Godzilla fights Rodan, while Mothra is aware of Ghidorah. Ghidorah wakes up. Mothra may or may not fight Ghidorah solo, if she does, she loses. Mothra breaks up the fight between Rodan and Godzilla in order to unite them against the greater threat. The three unite and defeat Ghidorah.
Basically it's a remake of Ghidorah the Three Headed Monster.
But the unrestrained glory is to the point that I welcome that with open arms. We already have tons of easter eggs popping up as is.
I have just read one of the greatest comic battles in my life.
Humanity revolting against the dystopia forces upon them by hyper intelligent dinosaurs from another planet using the power of nearly omnipotent ghost astronauts and giant lumberjacks while two Dr. McNinjas climb the tower of the president dinosaurs fortress, all culminating to Dracula blasting the fortress from his moon fotress using his enormously powerful moon laser thus freeing Edwin Tyranoman, head of Human/Dinosaur relations, aka The Ultimate Diplomat. With a single speach The Ultimate Diplomat ended hostilities between man and dinosaur thus paving the way to a glorious future of peaceful coexistence.
Bored. Waiting on BT’s triumphant return so we can continue with Scorn’s RP. Plus I’ve been watching an anime called Made In Abyss. Holy fuck is that show depressing at times. Had to stop watching it last night cause it hit so hard. Other than that I’m fine. At work right now, wish I wasn’t.
@BTR I just finished an 18 hour shift at work. So pretty good.
@Hound The Reptile King is not the only king out there. There are many of my ilk. The Primate King, The Mollusk King, Arachnid Queen, and Feline Queen have all been confirmed Great Beast Kings. More may or may not be coming with the coming Christmas RP.
@Jester Yes, yes it will be. I brought this up this early so everybody in our merry band of men/demons/gods/eldritch abominations/harmless little lizards will be prepared for it when the time comes.
I unfortunately live in a place where there is just enough light to drown out the night’s beauty. But I do have a farm house up north to escape to when I need it. No lights up there except what you bring.
As for work, good on ya, Aro. Gotta make that zeni.
Well my parents and I went on vacation there. I found out that Hawaii is basically having the population of NYC and LA crammed into a land mass that takes up about as much space as what Kansas thinks is a large city.
Being a country boy myself I found the place to far too cramped for my tastes. It's decent to visit. Probably the best state to be homeless in. But to live there? Terrible.
I don't think I'd mind settling on the big island though. Actuve volcanoes tend to keep those pesky neighbors far away.
Don’t know about Doc. But Scorn is hard at work with two jobs and college. I barely talk to him anymore because he’s so busy. He keeps his eye on the site now and again, but he’s so buried with his own stuff that he’s practically inaccessible.
Eh, same as me, I'd merely skimmed trough the site in a couple minutes at best before either having to sleep or go to work. It's always quite livelly before the vacations, so much to do in a very limited time.
We all must move at some point. Wondering when I will reach that point, sense I’m one of the first. This site has been good to me, can’t say I’ve had more fun anywhere else on the internet. Gonna have to get ready for Rep’s RP. New Beast Kings means new waifus.
I'm finally home gents! Or I'm close to home. Just waiting to get released at this point. Hawaii was terrible. There was nothing but volcanic rock for miles around and a lot of wasps, bees and yellow jackets.
Can’t really rub his belly, What with the shell and all. Besides I know you and Rep like him so I can take pride in him.... I think.
He’s an Eastern Painted Turtle, oldest MOFO I got. Outlived every other pet I’ve have. He’s a badass and is at that point in his days that shit doesn’t faze him anymore. Wish I could personally show him to you guys. He’s an old coot that’s to badass for his own good.
To Jester and BT, you two are above and beyond. Your responses are awesome, unfortunately Tirush is dying and we must regroup. Your entries are phenomenal. But we must retreat. I’m sorry if this next entry seems forced.
SCORN’S NOTES SAID HIS PRIMAL FORM HAD A “DragonballZ mouth lazer beam attack“! RUN KING! EVERYONE RUUUUUUUUUUNNNNN! RA-RA-RASPUTIN LOVER OF THE RUSSIAN QUEEN! THERE WAS A CAT THAT REALLY WAS GONE! RA-RA-RASPUTIN RUSSIA’S GREATEST LOVE MACHINE! IT WAS A SHAME HOW HE CARRIED OOOOOOOOOOON!!!!!!
A muffin. A muffin peppered with endless amounts of chocolate chips. Cyndwella’s orders. Samia wanted to give out a DVD player, but Cyndwella pulled her Wispy charm and convinced Samia the prize would be a chocolate chip muffin.
Ha that's where he's wrong! I can totally fight him alone! I just can't win. So I won't! I'll just bug him until he gets frustrated and gives up. Then I'll follow him home and bug him some more. Like ordering several dozen pizzas to where he lives and dumping the bill on him, and putting bumber stickers that support his opposing political parties on his car! The possibilities are endless...
Pizzas that he doesn't like mind you. This isn't one of those deals where he opend the door and he's like "oh hey, now I don't have to cook tonight." It's gonna be one of those, "Fuck, now what am I gonna do with this shit?" Kinda deals.
Being prepared isn’t weird, it’s called “being ahead of the curb”. And yes, I have spare key hidden outside my home. Though nobody will ever find it cause I’m too smartest! Just like Owl Mage is too floof.
Alright ye scallywags, in case none of ye have heard, today be talk like a pirate day. Now I know some of you may be too lazy to actually talk like a pirate today, so to you land lubbers I give ye a different way to celebrate the holly-day! But be warned, for she be coming for yer booty!
Da. Me be sorry for the rough spinach. But da, got familiar with their tactics, their ideas, their shipments. The idea of their sail being their idol of pride, a uniquely good one, though one be careful, them soft-water order folks be none the wiser to set targets to those.
Hound, Jorge, within a reply or two I'll be starting the separate RP for Tirush's procedure and its outcome. When that happens, it should be able to run parallel to Scorn's RP, whomever wants to stay at the Estate or return to the castle.
Yeah...if it could all last six more months then I could return to how I was, but if everything else is like me and Flame's RP then I get that. I hope we can all keep our chins up and push on though, and hopefully return somewhere down the road and revive things when we can breath a little more.
I'm definitely alive BT. Just exhausted. Things came up, and I ended up gettin a second job. I basically work all day from 4 a.m. to 6 p.m. or so, and working every day for a week (or more in the case if this coming week) with no days off from both jobs simultaneously means very little break time.
Oh hold on. I misread your comment. I thought you were asking if my place was noticeable to outsiders.
Now I'm the dumbass.
Anyways, yeah outsiders tend to stand out a bit. The Reptile Kingdom could be viewed to be an alien world to them. Almost akin to Wonderland in that regard, though for very different reasons. The wildlife is both completely unique and utterly terrifying. In a high fantasy setting, something like a Tyrannosaurus is may as well from another world. Even familiar creatures are take on new features in this realm. Enornous snakes and lizards, terrestrial herbivorous crocodiles, dragons of all shapes and sizes, all these things exist in the Reptile Kingdom and more.
What is commonplace for a native is bizarre, wonderous, and/or terrifying to an outsider.
On top of this are the cultural differences. The elvish race of the kingdom is friendly and welcoming. Violence is viewed as a just another part of life. Harems are commonplace and often the expected norm. The list goes on.
To an outsider the Reptile Kingdom is an alien world and their reaction to that makes the stand out. There's also differences in behavior and clothing. Matetials used in goods are different, outside of the Snowy Mountains, the wearing of furs is a pretty good indicator of a person being a foreigner, or having enough money to buy expensive imports. Scales from rare and beautiful creatures are commonly used in jewelry in the kingdom so a rich lady who only has gens is likely to be foreign. I'm sure you can figure out more as you go on.
Hmm... potentially. The Hunters Guild, Dragoons, or Tyrants have a pretty good chance of noticing if the people aren't subtle. Depending on the Lord of that Lordom it may be noticed by his/her/it's army and/or police force.
Really? That is a very interesting response from them. Ok, last one and this is for my increasing want to start bringing up figures: what kind of response would a foreign tally should he wander within the kindgom with a weapon? Now, not a sword, not a projectile. None of that soft water weapon poeple carry. Something like, a super weapon, with unknown purpose.
He would likely be cause for a alarm. Even the most lax Lord is going to have a problem with a weapon of mass destruction. The Tyrants and Dragoons, whose job is to secure the security of the kingdom as a whole, would view this super weapon as a huge problem that would need to he dealt with. The Hunters Guild technically has no business with this but I doubt they would ignore it either.
Ok, that...really makes me want to try throwing one in it just to see how it'd fare. But, in a subtle way, slowly, gradually. I have guys I've worked on and I wanna start slowy putting them out, to see what can be changed and what can stick.
