At first I was like O_O, then I was like "sshheeww!"
I'll work on it today and try to have it up by tonight sometime. It's a bit more extensive then I'm used to, as I'm a complete freeform kinda gal, but I can handle it! I got stuff to do before work, so I'll do some in between chores, and I'll work on it at work as well. Hope I get picked after all this work lol!
I'm a little lost on the abilities part. For dragon are we supposed to pick one special one too? Or just stick to the basic abilities dragons have? And for weakness, can it be like a small spot upon their body that can be penetrated easily? You have 'opposite' of their element. I'm lost on what the opposite of 'metal' would be as a weakness. And what does 'Mastery' mean exactly? I apologize if this is a lot of question, but I have absolutely NO CLUE when it comes to D&D stats, or stats of ANY kind.
I've always just winged it with my Anishal. I've had her since 2000, so I have who and how she is in my mind. Like... she has a sword called Godsbane. Pretty spiffy sword. Could that be her 'treasure'?
This might be too extensive for me to be able to join...
Ooh, it's not a system game, I just like going into detail, it makes sure people really think about character building, since I can't stand receiving profiles that look like it took five minutes to fill out, with little to no thought. So I'll help you navigate it :) I'm here to help anyone who needs it, so no worries.
For abilities, the common ones, are powers all Dragons have, the special ones, are powers that are unique to each Dragon. I listed examples, so it can give you guys ideas of what their main power would look like. So Blue dragons, would have one special ability that resembles their element, so blue is water, so any power that has water attributes would work, you can make it up. As for weakness, I'll give you an example. If you were to create a Red Dragon, their element would be fire, so you can say their weakness is water. But it's not a necessity, you can choose something altogether different for it. Maybe your character is a glutton, and can't stop itself from going over board with extreme eating, maybe, your character has an anger problem, and can go into terrifying rages when bothered. Think of it as a major flaw, instead of anything fatal, I'll have to go and change the wording. Mastery means, they would have mastered the ability to manipulate their element. You don't have to worry about D&D stats, since this game isn't using any, I only took the names of some of the powers.
As long as you take what you know of her, that's in your mind, and put it on paper, where I can get an idea of her as well, we're all good. Her Godsbane would go under weapon. Her treasure would be something she treasures, maybe a locket she received from a parent, a comb she got as a present, or maybe it's a favorite cloak. We all have something special we value above everything else, what does Anishal value?
So all in all, try not to feel intimidated, this game is a freeform game, but I'm just a little more involved in it, than what other people would expect.
I believe I can help answer part of your question, Bubby.
Your dragon is silver, correct? Silver is an extremely conductive metal - even more conductive than copper. While she might not literally be made of silver, you could use the same symbolism and say that she is vulnerable to electricity.
Yup, I was thinking that to lol. Although this game is not as strict with the weaknesses, so your Dragon could love lightning, it's really up to each player.
