We need one of these threads again; a place to talk character stuff and bounce ideas off of each other. So I'm making one, especially since it coincides with...

I totally rewrote my character's past, and redid a lot of her family and powers as well. I have a whole new profile, and Dragopedia page. 8DDDDD

Let me know what you all think. I'm posting my profile soon, and then I'll put my Dragopedia page up.

For those of you who can't be bothered, here:

It's wayyyy long, not for the easily bored.
Draca    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:15 PM
Your profile, it is hot. And awesome.
I honor your profile writing skills.

It's very nice though, and not too long. I like it. *Thumbs up*
Glic    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:16 PM
I shall go to check it out :o In the meantime I am sure you shall most eagerly be awaiting my response :P
Lightwingk'Sheyna (moderator)    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:19 PM
Thank you. <3

Dragopedia page is up nao.

Edit: -is waiting- =D

10 points to anyone besides Keiet who knows without using Google what the Echelon really is. 10 points and an explanation to anyone who doesn't know what the Echelon really is.
Glic    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:23 PM
Awesome :o

I scanned the dragopedia page for like, two seconds and decided I am too tired at the moment. But it looked like it will be fun to read lol.

Yay for simple histories, is all I have to say for me xD

Edit: Do other search engines count? *shifty eyes*
Lightwingk'Sheyna (moderator)    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:26 PM

Lol, like I said, it's wayyy long.

Yes, they do count. No cheating. If you don't know, you must ask.
Draca    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:29 PM
Does it involve a large white sphere thingy?
And does it have something to do with signal intelligence something something.

I saw something on TV about it. And the name sounds familiar. o:
Lightwingk'Sheyna (moderator)    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:31 PM
It's an intelligence gathering thing, I think. I really don't know much about it. XDDD

It's the name of a military formation.

It's also the name of a fan club of one of my favorite bands. xD

-hands ten points-
Draca    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:32 PM
Then why did you ask us? xD


*Noms on the points*
Lightwingk'Sheyna (moderator)    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:33 PM
I have no clue. 8D
Draca    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:38 PM
Echelon is also a formation in aerial combat, tank warfare, naval warfare and medieval warfare to be exact.

The Echelon formation is a military formation in which members are arranged diagonally.
Lightwingk'Sheyna (moderator)    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:39 PM
I knew that. -shifty eyes-
Well, sort of.
Draca    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:41 PM
I spend too much time on Wikipedia. D:
Especially on aircrafts that can go over 2 Mach.

Anyway, anyone else who's feeling like a character revamp?
Glic    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:48 PM
Yeah, even cheating it didn't really help.

I don't really like revamping my characters, I feel like I betray them lol. I'm happy with all mine Well, actually, I've recently been developing Angus a little more, as he doesn't actually have any history xD But I've spent no time on it lol.
Draca    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:53 PM
I revamp my characters once in a while or change them a little, thought I've kept my characters how they were for a while now.
I'm pleased with them. =3

Glic, you shouldn't betray your characters, they'll start to hate you. D:
Glic    Mar 1, 2009 at 01:57 PM
Precisely my point D: I don't want them to hate me. They could kick my @ss easily - even Glic Dx
Kei-chan    Mar 1, 2009 at 02:01 PM
I need to rewrite Keiet's profile. She's gone through a lot of character changes...
But I don't have a long enough attention span.
Draca    Mar 1, 2009 at 02:02 PM
*Pats Glic* If they come for you, I'll help you stay safe.

Well Keiet, then you have a problem.
Glic    Mar 1, 2009 at 02:03 PM
I have the attention span... but not the inspiration when writing.

But you live too far away ;o;
Lightwingk'Sheyna (moderator)    Mar 1, 2009 at 03:21 PM
I won't let my characters hate me. =D But usually I don't hang on to them long enough to make lots of changes.
Glic    Mar 1, 2009 at 03:43 PM
I never even had any characters before I came here :o
Lightwingk'Sheyna (moderator)    Mar 1, 2009 at 03:45 PM
I did, but they were just for school assignments. I didn't have anyone epic. ;.;
I wasn't very epic when I first joined. XD

Oh, and in case anyone ever wondered exactly what Lemon looks like, here:
Use your imagination to add the wings.
Glic    Mar 1, 2009 at 03:47 PM
Is he that long too? Its very cute =D
Draca    Mar 1, 2009 at 03:56 PM
He looks like candy. I could just eat him up.
But I won't.

I had a few characters before I came to the site, but all of the site characters were created after I joined.
I never added my old charries like Tristar. o:
rydon    Mar 1, 2009 at 04:05 PM
I was going to transform Rydon into a werewolf-vampire hybrid but I'm sort of going off that idea now. I'd like him to have the powers he would as a hybrid but dont you think It sounds a bit generic? (bitten by a vampire and a werewolf?) I'd like to bring an animal element into it but also an immortal side. I was hoping someone could help. Any ideas?

Draca    Mar 1, 2009 at 04:08 PM
Well Rydon, learn your little Elf the skill of shapeshifting and you'll be able to transform into an animal.
And perhaps you could limit it to forest animals so you can increase your power over less forms.

Plus, Elves already live long so you don't need to be immortal.
Lightwingk'Sheyna (moderator)    Mar 1, 2009 at 08:36 PM
Glic: Lemon is five and a half feet long. No idea about that snake.

Draca: You may not eat Lemon. D<

If I were you, I would look at an online encyclopedia of mythical creatures that sort of match what you like. I think a werewolf/elf/vampire mix could get pretty outlandish (especially since vampires can't breed and it would be hard to come up with a logical story for the combination), but if you find a creature that you really like, you can modify it to fit your story and background.

And I agree, elves, vampires and werewolves are pretty generic fantasy characters these days. But if you find something unique, I guarantee you'll have a good starting point. (:

Lemon is hot. And I cannot be arsed to read your profile tonight, maybe some day. ;o;

I cannot stand to write something unless I am really into it at the moment. And if I stop all my muse dies and I never finish. xD

Rydon, be a freaking narwhale. The unicorns of the sea. c:

I like Tengo just how he is, he is simple yet epic. xD And I have to many characters, around 80 if you count all the humanish ones you guys know. [Taylor, RD, ..ect xD] But I punted all but ten into storage.

A harpie is somewhat unique. I got the idea from my friend Black, she just made two harpie-like cahracters. Valq is hot too. |D He is omnomnom.
Lightwingk'Sheyna (moderator)    Mar 2, 2009 at 02:05 AM
Lemon's hot? XD
And that's fine, you can get around to it eventually if you want.

A narwhal. xD

Yeah, harpies are cool. There are lots of options for you, Rydon, just look around. ^^
Glic    Mar 2, 2009 at 05:50 AM
Narwhal is totally Futurama =D So sweet =3
tengo    Mar 2, 2009 at 09:45 PM
Yes, yes he is!

And well I have no more to add. D:
Seth_DragonFury    Mar 4, 2009 at 12:41 PM
Rydon, be a Dragonian. We need some of those. XD
No, but if you come up with a cool combination or other mythical beasty, let us know. =D

Lightwing, I love your profile now. It's special.
Lightwingk'Sheyna (moderator)    Mar 4, 2009 at 01:35 PM
Thanks, Seth. =D
I worked hard to make it special.
Seth_DragonFury    Mar 4, 2009 at 01:40 PM
*hugs back* And your work really shows in your profile.
skywing    Mar 4, 2009 at 06:56 PM
Meh, Sky can't stay the same for more then.... well until I happen to get bored of her. We seem to go through a lot of epic chari changes here though.

I dunno, that's my controbution from a tired-from-obsessing brain.

tengo    Mar 4, 2009 at 08:28 PM
I skimmed through your past, I just don't really have any muse to read about anything unless it's about Silent hill. |D

And I doodled lemon:
Lightwingk'Sheyna (moderator)    Mar 4, 2009 at 08:49 PM
Haha, I know the feeling.

Awwwwww! -huggles Lemon- That's so cute! =3
tengo    Mar 5, 2009 at 12:11 AM
I've been really obsessing with SH lateley..hmm. I need a life. Hurhur. But I'm sure the past is epic. 8D

Thank you. c:
