I think there's an easy solution to resolve this built into the setting that Ty550 has outlined so far.  It looks like the whole sword/arrow thing is very similar to the Quincy's stuff in Bleach, except their sword/arrow things are made of spiritual energy rather than actual physical objects.  Basically, it's magic.  So why not describe it the same way?  Ordinarily, yes, you'd have to have a quiver of arrows and a sword at your hip.  But with a contract, one of the magic abilities gained is the ability to manifest eldritch arrows and swords, and they can change form as needed.

I could get behind that. And as for improbable arrows in  fiction, their's a reason I avoid most most of it. When the laws of reality just go flying out the window, I lose interest; but, when magic, which by its very nature bends the rules of reality, is involved, it becomes palatable for me.

I figured it'd be the easiest way to solve the issue.

Also, MzHyde, what's your thoughts on my knight and your demon?  Interested or not your cup of tea?

I posted up a familiar in the character thread, contracted with Siereis' character, after speaking with her in PMs about it.

If you mean in comparison to the contractors, I kind of imagined that was the point of the contract. The humans form these contracts specifically because of the awesome might the familiars wield.

If you mean in general, or particularly in response to my character... eh, I tend to shoot high to see what the limits are xD if the GM says my character is too powerful, I'll gladly scale her powers back. I tried to balance her powers somewhat with the others, and make sure they weren't overkill, but perhaps I didn't do a good enough job with that.

Hey people...just a heads up...I can't figure out how to delete my profile, so instead it is just going inactive with me changing the password to something I can't find out.  Best of luck to you all in the future and sorry for the confusion and misleading.

Well... so much for that then... guess I'll be dropping out unless anyone else is interested in working something out with my familiar...

Hello, Finn! And aww, I'm sorry to see you go, Siereis... and you,  too, Finn. Though someone else might come along, wanting to play a Contractor, so not all hope is lost for you, buddy.

Yeah... I probably didn't word it perfectly, I'm not running off from the rp, but I'm sort of out of a contractor to work with now.

Shizuru would probably be better off with another female. She generally doesn't listen to anyone unless its in her own interest. So, if she's going to help anyone it would probably be another female.

I also still need a contractor, though I guess I can switch my character to a contractor, if need be. I realize I can play more than one, but I only prefer to play one character at a time. Also has the GM been on and checked this recently?

I dont mean anyone's character in particular, first off.

But yeah, I mean in general it feels like we made them to strong. But maybe I see this whole thing differently than everyone else. I know they're gonna be more powerful than the average man, but not so powerful they could decimate an army. I mean you know what I mean. I think we should have the chance to be able to overwhelm a Familiar wtih something less than a battalion. Maybe I'm misreading the powers we've given to our Familiars, maybe I'm overreacting. But like I told someone, the more weaknesses a character has the more fun the character and rp is.

That's all.

Fuck...I have no backbone.

First of all...I said I 'quit' the website because I wasn't enjoying myself

However.. I am back.  I just can't seem to stay away.  Sorry for the drama and it won't happen again!

Personally, I'm glad to see you back, and I hope whatever it was that made you want to leave in the first place is gone.  :-)

Thanks!  I mostly wanted to leave because I had some haughty thought that I would be productive in life if I was not online as much.  Sadly my ambitious attitude did not last.  Oh well, at least I get to hang out with fun people on here.

I don't know what's going on. Ty hasn't been on in five days. I assume he ran into some trouble.

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to drop from this game, I can't find any further inspiration to work on my character and my muse is not cooperating at all. Good luck to you all with the game. :D
