I am a little apprehensive, to be honest- both because you're fairly new to the system and I'm unable to find a sample of your forum writing anywhere in your previous posts... I'm not ruling anything out, but I do have to be careful.

A game like this, requiring teamwork and close relationships taking place only over the course of a few days.. can easily go sour quickly if one of the PCs suddenly leaves, and I do not like to take over someone else's character, even if they have to bow out of the game.

So I'm just saying I might need a bit of convincing.. I hope that doesn't sound too unreasonable. x_x

Weird. I do remember being in a Skyrim RP a few years back. And another which was about an expedition to a new planet or something. Might've gotten lost through the server reboots or something. Just a random guess, mind you. I can always post examples of my writing style from other boards or just write out a scene per demand. :P

If you'd like. It may console me. :P

Though I'm still worried about the mechanical difficulties.. this is.. not a friendly system, I understand.  :-\

The soldier marched onwards. A gait that knew no retreat. A gaze that were much like daggers; cold and piercing. Dressed entirely in black, like an imitation of night. But it was day. And this day was chaos. The infected were running about, climbing about and crawling about. The soldier spoke, as if talking to no one in particular: ''You know what they say about death. The final destination. The end of everything and so on and so forth. All of that is bullshit. Atleast in my case.'' He raised his rifle and fired, striking the infected with bullets and death as the final toll. He continued to walk about, as if nothing could kill or harm him.

As if seeking to punish the man for his arrogance, a wave of flesh and insanity came charging at him, ripping him apart in seconds, much like that of piranhas. These were the infected, former humans that had fallen prey to the virus that now plagued New York. After having devoured the man, they went on about to do mindless things which mindless things do.

------ Somewhere in New York -------

He was somewhere. In a room. A very bland one at that. Grey walls and a wooden floor. A small bed and what seemed to be a makeshift campfire of newspapers and sticks. Whomever had lived here had apparently been fairly poor. Not that currency mattered anymore. Not for the moment. People were too busy avoiding this ''plague'' that the government had so conveniently called it. Sometimes he wondered if they merely draped wool over their eyes and let it be at that. But who would really think that something like a ''plague'' could transform a human into a genetic abomination of putrid flesh and rotten bone?

He sighed. It were at times like these that he wished that he had a name. But for now his codename would do. He walked outside and as expected: A base. A base of camaraderie. Or potential sacrifices. Well, atleast they had something in common. Didn't matter. They usually died like flies anyways. He went outside and a mirror was standing in the hallway for some awkward reason. Or an awkward message. Sometimes he wondered if he shouldn't just run away from the whole thing. He had already died in their services several times now. Black hair, a rugged face like that of a thug and a wildly growing beard. Two brown eyes and lips that were dry and cracked unlike the smooth surface of the mirror. A pair of grey pants and a white tank-top. An extremely muscular body, a result from years of training and time spent in the battlefield. Time that should've been spent elsewhere, if he had to voice an opinion. But he was a soldier. And a soldier obeyed orders.

--------------------

Good enough? >.<

As for how the hell he got to that room in the first place? If I remember correctly he has this ability to spread ''spores'' that then, after his death, overwrites the body with his own. He has no way of controlling where he ''resurrects'' so there is that. And yes, I am fully aware that I am making anyone with a degree in biology or science weep. And I am not apologizing. :P

Didn't paste the entire thing as I felt it'd be a bit too long.

As for getting used to the D20 rules... well, practice makes perfect, no? :D

That should suffice. :p

What else do you need? I noticed your sheet is missing quite a few things.. I could introduce you to the team quite handily in the next few posts (though you don't know that they are your team yet :p)

I don't think Jayna will come back..

Looks like it. And I have yet to figure out how I should edit the sheet since that one are a few levels higher if I remember correctly. Or is it fine the way it is?

And that sounds like an idea. If I remember correctly genin and shinobi in general tends to be somewhat casually dressed for the most part, no? I guess that is partly due to the transformation jutsu or just inexperience seeing as Chuunin and up wears military-style clothing. Or maybe that is just a sign of grade.

So now I am sorta wondering what clothing Emi ought to have. I have a few ideas but suggestions from others would be pretty sweet. :P

The thread so far can be found here.

Also, I'm still just hazy on your character in general. I know her clan and her origins and some of her personality quirks- but what is your goal for her character's development during these exams? Other things involve a little uncertainty about your character, mechanically. Honestly, it's cool that Zaer's helping you with it and all but in the end I'm the GM and I kind of would like to know what's going on. :P Is she ninjutsu focused, genjutsu focused, taijutsu? If you wanted to round out the team, the last option might be the best.

I'd like to have the team well equipped to deal with a multitude of things and also for the fights to be interesting rather than just blasting out damage or save-or-die/save-or-suck rolls...

I build her genjutsu focused to fit for her theme to seduce and mind fuggle her targets. If want her taijutsu focused, then would need rework her entirely and then develop taijutsu techniques which emphasis grace of movement/dancing and probably use drugs or perfume to create sort hybrid taijutsu/genjutsu combat style (drug enemies by engaging them in melee/close range).

What Zaer said. The idea was to make her genjutsu focused with a lot of that Charisma to get some extra 'oomph'. And to seduce, of course.

Once Zaer is done with the edit... I am going to have a bit of trouble joining the RP smoothly it seems. :P

Well, i'll see if I can cook something up in the weekend.

Well, Genjutsu just might not work well. The exam will be split into three or more stages, composing at least;

A written phase, which is more of a puzzle than anything else.
A team vs. team phase, which will involve survival techniques and subterfuge more than actual confrontations.
And a tournament-style series of 1v1 fights, which by that point will be more of an epilogue to the game than a real substantial part of it.

At my whim, at any stage between the two phases, an elimination round which might compose of a race/puzzle/mini-tournament might be staged.

As it is, Genjutsu might not work well with the party we have- even if it fits Emi... Also, I find it terribly dumbs down fights. When I GM fights in this system, they are really more like puzzles. You find an enemy's weakness and exploit them, outthink them. Or you figure out how their techniques work and devise a counter to it. Genjutsu is... well, rather boring. Can you see the enemy? Cast a spell! Do they fail a will save? Match complete. If they didn't, try again!

I could simply give every NPC 'Iron Will' or have them burn action points to resist genjutsu, but that's not very fair if your build is centered around it. That and Yoshi already kind of covers these bases.. even if he isn't the big seducer that she is, mechanically they might fill the same role and that will lead to some rather... uninteresting encounters.

In short, I'd really appreciate if you let me in on the process a bit more... Please read over the thread before anything else and think about what niche your character might fit in best. Personality-wise, most. Both characters are kind of chaste (despite my attempts to tempt them :P) and frankly I am a little worried about a character just storming in oozing sex and throwing the entire tone set by the party so far off.

Could also make her genjutsu be dependent on perfume. Which could add in some more tactical depth to it, like position and which way the wind goes. While she is seductive, that is only when the situation requires it. Or when drunk, really. While her looks basically makes any clothing sexy, it is no fault of hers! :P

Maybe also have it have some requirements perhaps? Like the closer she is the more effective and so on. While that might not be too fitting for her as her physical abilities are fairly low, I can see her being the stealthy type. If that is even possible with the current build.

Genjutsu actually has a few layers to it and there are those that have a different medium to travel through. Like how the Sound Shinobi Girl used bells to induce them. More powerful genjutsu users can simply use handseals or point at them (Itachi).

She could also fulfill the role of a tactician what with her INT stat. Or is it wisdom? Although that depends more on my ability to think out strategies. >.<

I think I will brainstorm this a bit more. But so far, what do you think could be changed?

Well, as I mentioned one approach is that your taijutsu specialist (would need swap some scores around but keep charisma high) who uses moves and maneuvers which bedazzle foes into genjutsu and you use genjutsu enchance your melee combat prowess. Perhaps our GM allows custom feat which allows use charisma instead Str (or custom talent) with melee attacks so long their seductive or used specific manner?

I could very easily pick taijutsu techniques which could be reflavored or even make custom jutsus (which may have material component; perfume to help create wanted effect).

Aight. Currently reading through Where The Mist Settles. Would you prefer I jump over this entirely? If nothing else it doesn't seem like the right opportunity to hop in. >.<
