    Well the mini black hole to a real black hole is like a mini burger to a normal burger. If you were to see a mini burger on those buffet tables you're like "Oh damn! It's a burger!" but it doesn't quite pack the same punch as lets say a Big Mac.

    I've read the changes and I quite like Ranger's one bout pushing and all that. Seems coolish~sci-fi-ish.

    And for some reason, when I think of Castle's character, I think of Optimus Prime. Perhaps it's because I've just watched a Transformers Marathon but yeah. Cuz Optimus Prime is like a robot and all, so he can't really die of old age, but if he were to get stabbed at his "core" he'd fall over like a wooden plank. Maybe Castle should have some sort of Core which is weakspot. Meaning if he gets blown apart anywhere else but the core, he can just regenerate it, but once his core gets blown apart, it's bye-bye Castle's Currently Nameless Character.

    Here is a direct quote of what I intended my roll to be.

    Roll: Group Mother. Cooks, Takes care of the sick, Listens to whoever needs some one to listen, gives advice when needed, Kicks butts that need kicking.

    Do you see any thing in there about fighting on the battlefield? If my abilities are not easy to use on the battlefield then don't use me for the battlefield sheeeesh. I am not going to change them just so they are convenient to use. They are what they are.

    I don't really see why using my bombs would be hard to use in the first place. EVER HEARD OF GRENADE CHUCKING ANY ONE?

    I will contemplate on other problems my character has such as where the bombs come from and why she is in the group. But I will not change her abilities. (I really don't see how a world of bombs makes less sense then pure plain magic).

    At first I thought this story was gonna be about a magical world where just about any thing happens. Now there needs to be a reason for every thing (except pure magic).

    I will probably regret posting this but oh well. I will deal with any responses in my own ways.

    No, no. Point taken, Gloria, and you're right. But logic is something I personally don't want to ignore here.

    It's not the bomb thing per sé, and one might just say, for example, that this thing is enchanted and reassembles itself every time after or something like that. The thing is... yeah. Magic... Well... Of course "magic" means you can just come up with things, but I try to bring some logic into it. The thing is that I want to avoid the "it's magic, I don't have to explain anything!" way of writing.

    The idea of magic in this story would be more "tinkering and/ or tricking the laws of physics (fireball spell, magic missiles, levitation, Arcane circles and enchanted items) based on a system of resistances. Some have extreme magic resistances, some extreme physical ones. Things like wings and a portal power - so things that not everyone should have - are, in my eyes, something that should come with an explanation and/or a lot of training in the field. The world, as I imagine it should have it's fair share of demons and youkai/ makai, who often have special quirks and usually have inherited some abilities. That's a cheap way of writing yourself out of a corner but still at least allows me to live with my sense of logic.

    By the way, D&D for example has a bunch of fantasy races and characters and spells and dragons and whatnot, but everything follows a set of rules, most things are properly explained and you can die if you mess up. Boundaries, ye know...

    I actually watch angry movie and game review videos quite often (AVGN, TGWTG, Spoony, Linkara, Phelous), and while these give you a lot of fun they let you notice the flaws in things. I couldn't go with the whole "reasons for things are stupid, so let's do something equally stupid" attitude; that's just not my style. But everyone's opinion here is quite welcome and I hope you know that.

    Your role in the group sounds interesting. The thing is that since people will have to deal with their character's dialogue, it might not be a perfect smooth ride, if ya know what I'm saying. Lenra pretty much does her own thing, Dave is highly intelligent but lost and Castle just hides a lot of the things about him somewhere. And I don't know if anyone will connect to NKDZ' character so fast.

    TBH, I'm annoyed that we can't start already, but Ranger has gone off somewhere.

    Bummer bout ranger :-/

    Here is something on the logical side of why my character would join the group. Imagine yourself as her.

    Would YOU want to be a hostess at a small tavern the rest of your life?
    What if a bunch of interesting people came along and formed a sort of group right in front you, and it looked like they were going to have some adventure?

    I still need to think of the way she approaches the group.

    Well, Ranger still logs in and looks at the site regularly, kinda. :/

    Ah, okay. The guy has two broken wrists. He actually went through all the trouble to get on the chatbox and try to type with these bandage things pretty much covering his hands and arms.

    o.O

    Any Idea how he managed to break both his wrists? I have managed to get through my entire life thus fare without breaking any bones or getting sprains bad enough to make me completely immobile. So to me it is amazing when someone breaks both their wrists.

    The dude was biking downhill and used the brakes. It was to steep tho, and he had his wrists caught inbetween the handlebars. 'Cept for that, he broke nothing.

    Anyway, spider map? Do tell me what you mean, and I might be able to supply you with it.

    As in you know those maze like quizzes that you see in those magazines where its like "Do you like _____" Then there is a yes and no path which leads to different questions and eventually comes to one verdict.

    So if we were to make one of those, but for our characters, we could divide them into different "groups" such as who'll be the bad guys,good guys, tsunderes, traitors etc.

    Or another way is that you could make make a huge spidergram with everyone's characters having their own original points(circles,plots,bubbles whatever you call them), and just....write about your character, and with each new sub-bubble being more detailed. Such as if I were to write about Strafe I'd go:

    Code:
    Strafe'Dante'Kayoz
     -> Reasons to join group
          ->No particular reason
     -> Weapon
          -> Medium Range
              -> Magical
     -> Personality
          -> Dislikes large crowds
          -> Calm
          -> Devious

    You catch my drift right?
