1, 2 and 4.
So yeah, he's got a boyish appeal to him.
Although in terms of pure looks Ciar's taking top rank in my book.
Arune's got the dark and buff and good body but probably has a septic tank for a personality kind of look to him. (No offense Rotburn)
Jimmy's got the 'guy you could be friends with, or have hot sticky sex with and then be awkward around' look to him. Kinda boy-next door. (Although I hate his hair.)

Hahaha~
Arune's got depth. He's just going into a game where everyone except The One is supposed to die. Personality is the lowest thing he's concerned with. Plus, the skull and distant look is sort of in his caliber as being a closed-off sociopath. <3

It's not if you die, it's how you die.

True, the Nordic Vikings believe that to die in battle is the highest honor because that way they may join Odin in Valhalla. That's almost how the Widdershin's raised Arune as well... but you'd have to guess at his age that Arune was almost free of joining the Hunger Games. So he had hopes and dreams of his own to escape the family trade. He's just a jaded and twisted individual now. :P

Opinions now everyone...

Current pic for Jimmy, or this one from my collection of face-claims in my request thread?



I like this one more, but I wonder what everyone else thinks?

This is the issue with the system largely being in my head and none of you guys being telepathic. ::)
But seriously, I keep thinking I've written down everything and then realise that, nope, most of it is still in my head.

So anyway, you add identify plants/insects to your natural medicine score to get your final score, the same with knot tying and complex item making.

"Dex is 5 and her Int is 3. Her skills with either Identify Plants/Insects or Knot Tying are the minimum, 1s.

Thus, her initial base with Identify Plants/Insects is 4 and her Knot Tying is 5.

For simplicity, her skills with Natural Medicine and Complex Item Making are also the minimum, 1s.

Natural Medicine1 plus {Identify plants/insects1 PLUS Int3} = 5?"

Yeah, that's it. Natural Medicine: 1 + id plants: 1 + intl: 3 = 5 +3d6 = roll.

Sorry if the OP was confusing guys. I'll go edit it with some &s.


I like the second pic of Jimmy, wander. Although I like the original pic of Jimmy just fine too. ^.^

So lurking.... Is there a coup de grace mechanic? For example, Person A sneaks up on person B while person B is sleeping. In real life A could kill B with 1 sword or Axe hit. In your system there is currently no way to account for that to my knowledge.

Huh - um... an Ambush plus per Lurking's approval? I mean, no one wants to lose their character due to a single blow, but if given the Perception chance to notice a surprise attack coming (at severe minuses), then maybe all those minuses they lost by are added damage to the ambush attack. This would be completely situational, but it is an interesting addition, Ritsu.

I think personally, it's a bit of a shitty way to kill someone off, killing a character whilst they're asleep. I know it happens and all, but that's such a dishonourable tactic even I'm balking at it...

Well we're not starting in the arena.
We're doing that pre-area training jazz first.

Make alliances, lose virginities, show off to the spectators how awesome you are so you get some fans.
Not necessarily all at the same time

True that~ Although I'd probably just make my character skip all that. I don't see him making many friends, lovers, or fans. If he dies off fast, 'eh' that's the luck of the dice. (Apathetic)

HERE'S JOHNNY!!!
Name: Johnathan "Johnny" Greene
Gender: M
Age: 20
District: 7
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
On & Offs: https://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=170360.0
Appearance:Johnny is 6'2 and weighs in at 185 lb. With brown hair and brown eyes, Johnny looks slightly tan due to his line of work. Johnny is pretty cut, muscle wise, from working as a lumber jack. His hands are rather callused from working all his life with plenty of small cuts going up his forearm could be seen. His hair naturally slicks back, keeping out of his eyes as he works with an axe all day. Rarely does he shave, leaving a five-o-clock shadow on his face most of the time. 
Personality: Johnny likes to work smart more than work hard so he tends to know how to cut with an axe without exerting energy. Johnny tends to explore and likes adventure as well as coming up with imaginative scenarios of a better world. It was that type of mindset that had Johnny self-teach himself on how to throw axes accurately. All in all, Johnny is a good guy who has never killed before. He does not know what he would do in a life or death situation though. No one knows what the Games could do to such a noble mind and a good heart.
History: Johnathan grew up a lumberjack like his father with his mother's kindness. Johnny grew up learning the value of kindness in a world where death could take him any minute. He never wanted to be part of the Hunger Games. He figured he never could win nor bring himself to kill someone. Most of his time was spent trying to not be picked by proving himself a valuable member of society as a hard worker. It was a senseless illusion, but one that kept him sane throughout his life. He picked up a hobby of throwing axes and even made it a game with his fellow co-workers as they use axes as darts. "Give Johnny an axe, and he could throw it at any target" his co-workers would always say.

Health: 48/48
Hunger: 10/10

So my take on a character who'd either probably die first because he's too nice, or live long enough to see himself become a villain. Thoughts?

Looks good to me! :)

I'm going to try and sort out my Jim's history later on now... I know I was going to do it hours before, but the day was a busy one. Unfortunately Adulting doesn't seem to want me to catch a break today either...

@ChaNeko in particular (only because she likes the first pic of Jim) but also everyone else; What's your opinion on the new pic?

Whenever there's an attack the target will always have a chance to respond. So person B will be able to wake up and perform a defending/attack/dodge roll. Stealth would allow person A to approach person B without being noticed if person B is asleep and can't roll a high enough perception skill to detect person A, but it wouldn't allow them to perform an attack without a response. There would be benefits to that approach though. If a tribute falls asleep without having a weapon equipped to their hand then they wouldn't be able to equip it in time to defend themselves, so they would be forced to use a dodge roll, and their dodge skill might be less then their weapon defence roll. Or if they're equipped with a weapon, like a bow, that can't be used to defend against up-close attacks. Or you could use a range attack (but they would still be allowed to respond). Or you could just steal their supplies or something. But, yeah, killing someone while they're asleep isn't possible in this game.
Neither is killing someone during sex, while I think about it. You're not allowed to attack each other during sex. Just so you guys know. :P


I glanced over Johnny and he looks great, Fate! I'll look him over, and the other profiles, properly as soon as I get a chance.

I will try to get some threads up today. I might not get the IC threads up, but I'll try and get an ooc and character profile thread up at the very least. :-)

Guess that's another game I won't be able to donkey-punch in...  ::) j/k

Okay, I have a little bit of time so I'm gonna do a brief history for Jimmy. I'm also replacing his pic. :)

EDIT = Character sheet completed!

I liked the idea of Tesserae, so decided to include it in my character's history. I'm debating on reducing his age to give it more an impact, though eh... I think he's okay as he is, unless people like a younger guy. ^^
