The Furies (Pathfinder; Harem-esque)
« on: November 29, 2015, 07:54:19 PM »
In a savage era, seemingly without shelter from danger and oppression, one Warlord
and his four sorcerous knights rise above the chaos to bring peace and hope to the world.
During that rise, they changed the lives of four women who had lost everything.

Binding their fates to his, either because of love or duty or ambition,
they grew powerful and immortal, and in time hoped to replace his masked knights
who served as his lieutenants, envoys, and lovers.
Together, these nine brought peace to the world, uniting it,
and the warlord became Emperor over this utopia.
Then it all began to go wrong.

The man who was once a benevolent monarch, turned into a dictator of the worst kind
and his celestial knights became his Furies.
Atrocity followed atrocity, and a tyrant soon became a madman.
His eyes became set not only on what he had built,
but on the world, the planes, the gods, time and space iteself.
And then he became an Un-god with the power to do so.

The four women fought back, beating back his legions and summoned creatures.
They invaded his citadel and came face to face with The Furies.
Then came the Revelation.

The Furies were unmasked and the four women and stared into their own faces;
older, scared by the years, and much more powerful.
Revelation without enlightenment and no answers.
Outmatched and outclassed, the Emperor completed his plans.

As time and space were rent asunder,
they worked great and terrible spells to save themselves.
And so they went back.
To the beginning.

Is it a chance to make things right?
A chance to to change things for the better?
Or is it merely a cruel perpetuation of a cycle?
Can one escape fate and thus defy the tyrannous stars?


Another month another Pathfinder game, lol.  Well, the above gives the general premise behind the idea for this game.  For now, I'm just going to check if this gets any traction before moving on to development.  The following are some points of clarification as to ideas I had for the game, just to give those so interested a general idea of what I'm looking for and what to expect:
  • Harem-esque: A bit conceited I know, but I don't want this to be so much a sex-fest with everything focussed on pleasing the male character so much as I'd like to explore the various relationships and dynamics at play between all the individuals, and how it affects the way they handle the challenges and trials that come their way.  On topic, not every encounter needs to be a group one and not necessarily with lead male all the time, every time.
  • Pregenerated Characters: In loosest sense of the term.  There are some pictures I'm really hoping people will fancy as their avatar as well as few key elements that define the character, but other than those, players can determine how they'd like to build the characters.  I'm not picky on RL gender, so Male players can also apply for roles if they think they can carry it off and it's something they're interested in.  I initially thought of just allowing a free building of characters as is usually the case, but I figured that to maintain a game I'll be GMing, I'm also looking to have a few things of interest even if that risks not getting any players at all.
  • Story vs. Smut: I'm aiming for something like 40% character development, 40% story, and 20% sex.  Basically, I want to develop a strong story of which sex and sensuality is a part of it, rather than sex sex sex and a bit of story clinging on for the ride.  As well, despite the seriousness/grimness of the plot outline suggested above, there's plenty of opportunities for light-hearted moments.
  • Character Build: The starting level will be somewhere between 1st to 3rd.  Tiers of play will eventually make use of the Mythic rule-set.  Over the course of play, characters will have customised variations of the Half-Celestial/Fiend applied to them piece by piece (rather than the whole template at once).  Characters will also have a unique piece of signature equipment, if I can prep it in time.
  • Adventures: Fairly varied from what I'm thinking, but then this is also globe-trekking; saving the village, dark forests and grim castles, swashbuckling on the high seas, planar rifts and tears - all up for grabs.
  • Overarching Themes: Intrigue, conspiracies, a war between demons and devils inflamed by the celestial realms, and malevolent powers that dwell in the darkness between the stars...

And so with these things out of the way, let's proceed to the make-or-break section - the Heroines:

THE HEROINES
The top of each section consists of pictures that are currently catching my interest for the character to be moulded upon, though I willing to entertain others as suggested - no point in forcing yourself to play a certain image if you like the role, but not the image.

Followed by a few brief thoughts I had for the characters, though nothing too solid.  This includes alignments, possible races, and classes.


ELEGANT BEAUTY


Something of an asian-oriented theme, with a distinct martial flair.  Probably the most martially inclined of the four.
Regal, reserved, dutiful, flirtatious or teasing at times, single-minded dedication.
In terms of 'True Companions', she probably ranks as truest of the true.

Suggested Alignment: LG, LN, NG
Suggested Race: Half-elf, Human, Vanara (with human appearance)
Suggested Classes: Cavalier, Cavalier (Samurai archetype), Ninja, or Slayer


EXOTIC BEAUTY


Another year and my love-affair with DSBs* goes unabated. ~sigh~
I'm thinking an Ishtar-like individual with splashes of Aphrodite.  Outwardly standoff-ish, passionate inside.
A fierce warrior that occasionally has surprisingly girlish moments.

Suggested Alignment: CG, CN, N
Suggested Race: Aasimar, Human, Sulis
Suggested Classes: Bard (Dervish archetype), Bloodrager, Kineticist, or Warpriest


MYSTERIOUS BEAUTY


The one that always keeps people guessing; the Lady of Mystery (is she a Lady?).
Maybe someone with a secret agenda, or just lives for today.  Peace maker between her comrades.
Although the group is generally cohesive, she can be the one that generally be considered as the glue.

Suggested Alignment: LN, N, NE
Suggested Race: Any human-looking.
Suggested Classes: Alchemist, Cleric, Mesmerist, or Occultist


TAINTED BEAUTY


The essence of this character is that of an outcast because of her tainted humanity, which caused others to fear her as an omen.  Good girl gone bad.
Highest ambition, and most manipulative of the four.  I'm thinking someone dedicated to Lovecraftian powers (the Dark Tapestry in this case).

Suggested Alignment: CN, LE, NE
Suggested Race: Changeling, Dhamphir, Kitsune, Tiefling
Suggested Classes: Arcanist, Oracle, Psychic, or Witch


Whatever disparate outlooks they may have, these four women can acknowledge that their destinies are intertwined and will stick together through thick and thin, even if they might disagree on the methods of achieving their aims - they've survived the end of the world together after all - they're a team.  Although quite powerful in their time, they lost a lot of that potence in the transition back, and their memories are generally intact though specific details are difficult to recall.  In terms of the time jump back, it's nearly 1,000 years; centuries before any of them have yet to be born, yet this is - surprisingly - the period when the madman they knew rises from simple warrior to warlord.

Although it may be a potentially world saving option to kill him and save the world, for the purposes of this game, it can be assume that they shouldn't take that path... yet.  Perhaps its too much on the conscience to kill someone who's still quite innocent and idealistic; maybe there's still some lingering affection; perhaps they don't know how bad the repercussions of doing so might be; maybe they want to find out what led them on the path of nihilism; maybe they believe that with enough effort they can change things for the better.  Stuff like that.

If any of the characters appeal to you, you are invited to padded them out and create a background and fuller persona for them, as well as choose some of the mentioned options for them, including preferred starting level.  If other people have submitted different characters, it would be advisable to see if you can coordinate with them to detail a history together; the more the merrier!


If there's enough interest for this (this game can start with a minimum of 2 characters), I'll post up the specifics of character creation soon after.  Characters will not be chosen on a first-come-first-served basis.

Feel free to ask questions or voice concerns.  Thanks for reading this far!




The character sheet is here.  Don't worry yourself if someone else has chosen the same archetype beauty as you've set your eyes on.  Choices haven't been made yet and everything can be considered rather fluid at this point.

Character Name and any Nickname

Gender: Female, Crossdresser/Transexual (note that only up to two of the latter will be considered)
Model: The Elegant, Exotic, Mysterious, or Tainted
Alignment: Alignment Here; Race: Race here
Class: The class in which your character will have the most levels in (after multiclassing)
Age: Age (and apparent age if not Human)

Physical Description: Describe your character's appearance here.  Avoid clothing descriptions and focus more their actual physique and face and any quirks, as clothing is apt to change over time.

Personality: Personality here

Background:  Things you could include are early life/origins, defining/life-changing moments; how she met up with the warlord and what was done that left such a huge impression; her ambitions and wishes; what she felt she was most valued for during her service; the proudest personal accomplishment/mission achieved before he fell from grace (achievable by someone of a character level at about 15th); how she felt about fighting against her former lord; how she felt when confronted with the fact that The Furies turned out to be older versions of themselves all along; what her thoughts are about their current predicament.

One thing to remember is that none of the women have been intimate with the emperor before now.  In addition, don't worry about the exact world you build for the future - you may be as vague or specific about things as you want.  Put simply, you have full creative control over it, and specific facts may be reconciled at a later point.

SAMPLE CHARACTER
Fillout example
Kanna 'The Wrath' Ulmar

Gender: Female
Model: The Exotic
Alignment: CG; Race: Sulis
Class: Bard (Dervish Archetype)
Age: 94 (appears in her early 30's)

Physical Description: Kanna is a statuesque woman of proud posture.  The bright golden locks of her hair contrast with her bronzed form and accentuate the turquoise of her eyes, whilst her generous bust and the curves of her body add a certain degree of sensuality to her otherwise aloof manner.  Standing at 5' 9", she tall for a woman, which, combined with her looks, almost never fails to draw attention wherever she goes.  For those who have seen her without clothes, they would know she has a slavers brand on her left hip and that the hair on her loins is as golden as that on her head.

Personality: Kanna's temper is about as cool as her appearance suggests.  She tends to speak her mind, but only when asked for her opinion, otherwise she prides herself on getting whatever task she is set accomplished.  In private, or among close friends, she a bit less reserved and more prone to acts of friendship.  She places high value on her body and will only ever be nude in private or among her sisters-in-arms; anyone else who sees her thus is due to see her shy and mortified, shortly followed by a stern beating that may take them weeks to recover from.

Her interest in most things is slight, but when something does catch her attention, she throws herself into it completely and without thought for the consequences.

Background:  Kanna was due for the life of a minor, but pampered noblewoman in her sultanate before desert raiders tore her from that life and set the shackles of slavery upon her.  Her beauty and seemingly perpetual youth subsequently became her curse as she has known the unsolicited touch of man and the weight of his body upon hers many times over decades years, which caused her to withdraw into herself to escape the torments of her life.  She did not hope for escape, knowing that the world was too cruel to provide such a reprieve.

Yet escape came one night amidst fire and slaughter, and she found herself looking up at a cloaked figure who seemed to pay her no heed as her newest captors were herded before him on their knees, where they begged for their lives.  The man assured them he would not kill them, but then came to her cage and smashed the lock.  He embeded his own sword in the sands before her and said: "But I can't say the same for her."  And he left.  Somehow, after she had butchered her abusers, she managed to track him and the four masked companions he travelled with.  Though he turned her away, claiming she owed him nothing, she was determined to pay her debts and followed doggedly until he acknowledged her.

Over the years, Kanna has fought constantly at her Lord's side, seeing him bleed alongside his comrades to achieve his aims of fixing the world and casting down the corrupt, and that he never tried to touch her as other men had, made her come to desire it at last.  In turn, she provided absolute loyalty to his vision of the world, that he might see her as a woman at last rather than one of his warriors.  Thus, it was a dark day when the person she admired the most began to slip into darker purposes,  She weathered this at first, convincing herself that these were necessary evils that needed to be done for the greater good, but it became obvious that there was no greater good to be had.  That she could not divine why he had so changed was the most bitterly infuriating thing in her life, making her realise an old axiom: "Admiration is the furthest thing from understanding."

Together with her battle sisters, it was agreed that they had stop him before he caused great tragedy, and she knew that before they got to him, they would have to get past the his four knights, who Kanna had started to believe were responsible for his corruption).  Over the various battles and intrigues they waged to get to him, Kanna became more and more convinced of this until it was an undisputed truth in her mind.  Then they assaulted the citadel and unmasked the Furies.  To face the fact that she was, or would become one of those women, was a bitter reversal.  She contemplated that the other was some sort of doppelgänger, but her Fury knew her in a way that no one else could or should.  Then reality buckled and tore itself apart - they had wasted too much time.  Everything after became a blur of desperate action.

When she awoke again, it was a surprise to be alive.  To have come back so far in time left her feeling alienated from everything she knew, but there was also a strange foreboding in the back of her mind; something that came to pass when they encountered the Emperor again in a time before he was so.  That he was actually alive so far back was also a shock, but it made Kanna resolved to find out what she could, convinced that when the time comes, she can save him from the monster he seems fated to become, whilst secretly avoiding thinking about the monster she seems fated to become.  Even though evidence suggests otherwise, she desperately wants to believe that this is a second chance (or is it a third?) to try and make it right.

I would adore the chance to play a Bloodrager. I have a few concepts for the class I have been dying to try.

Hi guys!  Thank you for showing interest in this.  Frankly, I wasn't even expecting any this early (in the past, elsewhere, pregen chars have not really attracted that much interest).  If you have a rough concept for the character you'd like to play, go ahead and type a out a fictional background and flesh out the personality a little bit (even if you're interested in more than one character).  Even if the backgrounds contradict, they can always be reconciled later.

At this point in time, I'm envisioning using the point-buy with 25 points to spare.  As I mentioned before, though, this shouldn't be too much of a priority right now, as I'm more interested to see the creative talent of prospective players.

Whilst not so keen on the pictures, I have a character in the works, a once human adventurer turned into a creature similar to a squole rules-wise.

I don't have a problem with pre-generated character concepts; one of my most beloved characters was a pre-generated character that was handed to me... The tone seems to be mainly eastern in nature and I'm not sure that any of the classes that I usually prefer to play would fit. Other not being able to see the images, I'm not sure that I know enough to actually produce a character bio to fit the setting.

I'm also confused about the levels, did you mean to say that the level will be set individually, or that the players would choose the level of the characters

Would you consider an european type half-elf LN swashbuckler for the mysterious lady?

Another question - must characters be genetic females? What is the possibility of a very feminine trap-type character in one of the roles?

  I'm not sure I know what a 'feminine trap-type' character is? 

  It sounds like you mean a cross dresser who goes out of her way to embarrass people by lying about their gender.

I'm not up on all of the slang anymore Muse, but I think it's a tans-sexual. In a fantasy setting, probably using magic toslowly transform. I'm not sure how liberally minded a warlord would be about his sexuality to embrace a male pretending to be female into his bed, but hey... who knows.

Feel free to come up with the general concept and post her up and we can see what archetype beauty she'd best fit under!

I don't have a problem with pre-generated character concepts; one of my most beloved characters was a pre-generated character that was handed to me... The tone seems to be mainly eastern in nature and I'm not sure that any of the classes that I usually prefer to play would fit.

I'm also confused about the levels, did you mean to say that the level will be set individually, or that the players would choose the level of the characters

Would you consider an european type half-elf LN swashbuckler for the mysterious lady?
Technically only one of the girls lean towards a more eastern slant of things (the Elegant one), so the others more open.  If you've got a particular type of woman in mind for the game that doesn't match those put above, feel free to post her up and we can see how well she'd fit in.  As you correctly mentioned to me by PM, if you don't try, you won't know  :-)

As for the exact starting level, as I mentioned, it will be anything from 1 - 3.  I haven't decided on the exact starting number yet, but I'm open to having players suggest to me at what level they'd like to start and then I'll make up my mind about that.

The mysterious lady was one I was hoping would be fulfilled more a sort of support-primary, combat-secondary character, but even so, I'm open to allowing myself to be convinced otherwise.  I realise the swashbuckler is a big want of yours (seen it posted elsewhere  ;D), though I would like (but not insist) that the full on martial combat role be fulfilled by Elegant one (who is purely martial based).  I've been scouring around for a few other swashbuckler-type classes and wondered if I might point you in the direction of the Mesmerist with the Vexing Daredevil archetype, which is sort of like the swashbuckler but with some magical capability and lots of feint feats.  If it's not to your taste, don't worry, we can just work at your swashbuckler  ;D

Another question - must characters be genetic females? What is the possibility of a very feminine trap-type character in one of the roles?
Certainly, I'm something of a fan myself.  Initially, I was prepared to allow up to one such character in, meant to fall into the category of the mysterious (hence why I noted in the description - Is she a Lady - though I now realised I should have said, Is she even a 'Lady').

  I'm not sure I know what a 'feminine trap-type' character is? 

  It sounds like you mean a cross dresser who goes out of her way to embarrass people by lying about their gender.

My personal take on Traps are a flat-chested girl with male parts instead of female ones, since the vast majority look practically female.  I think crossdresser is closer to the mark rather than transexual, given as transsexuals tend to have done the operation to have breast implants.  Of course, in a magical world, that's a little less clear...  :P

I've never really considered the Swashbuckler class to be a full-on fighter, but I can see the direction it would come from. My plans were to give her some roguish abilities; getting into places that people shouldn't go, some charasma based skills and keep the character mobile rather than a stand and fight type. Depending on starting level, I also wanted to add in a level of bard (Archaeologist?) for the minor buffing potential and further diversify the range a bit. With the skill points and playing a half-elf, it won't quite be a skill monkey, but can do the talking and a little supportive magic.

The issue that comes up in Eastern classes is that I've never been a fan of the Eastern classes. I'm willing to work with you though and I'll have to look at the classes suggested. I don't know much about the alternative and it looks like Chew is aiming for the mysterous Beauty as it is.

Ideally, for a level in Bard, I would love 4th level, but at least 2nd would do to build the character. I suppose that I could switch things up and do bard with a level of Swashbuckler for the flavor even.

  Now I'm confused.  Is the elegant beauty still available?

Hmmm, as far as I've seen, I don't think anyone else has posted for it.  Right now, the main one appears to be the Mysterious one.  That being said, even if someone else expressed interest in it, anyone is free to post for the spot - the spot isn't gone until I announce who wins the post.  I'm working on a descriptive character sheet right format right now, and what I'm looking for is the details posted therein.

Watch this space.

Preliminary character sheet is up.  Look to the OP post to find it.

Jennifer 'Jenn' Corrs


Gender: Female
Model: Exotic/Mysterious/Tainted Beauty
Alignment: NG; Race: Slime (formerly human)
Class: Druid
Age: 102

Physical Description: Jennifer is a five foot tall mass of blue-green and brown slime, vaguely in the form of a human woman.  The form has functional arms, however its lower torso is without definition and meets the floor in a puddle of slime.  Jennifer's green eyes are still visible, positioned at the 'head' of the mass, and are the only element not composed of slime.

Personality: Jennifer is perhaps the most active of the furies: doing whatever is necessary to make sure her Emperor has the information and resources needed to maintain his rule; and also takes the emotional well-being of her 'sisters' very seriously, working with the same dedication to make sure they are at their best.

Jenn is defined by doing whatever she feels is best for the 'greater good', even if it leads her to unsavory acts, as she quickly learned that showing mercy can sometimes lead to your undoing.  In combat, she prefers to subdue opponents, with the interest of gaining further information and possibly recruiting them to her master's cause.



Background: Jennifer struggles to remember much of her life before the 'incident' with only faint memories of her past: names, faces and events without connection or meaning; and her attempts at finding any answers only led to opposition resulting from her new form.  For years she continued to stumble, somewhat blindly through her new existence, often having to defend herself from those she came in contact with, which wasn't helped by the somewhat destructive properties her body now possessed.

The attrition from the constant abuse and failures bore their weight down on her and Jenn accepted that she would never reclaim more than a shred of who she once was, forever a monster in the eyes of others.  Eventually giving up entirely when she found herself encircled by the latest gathering of adventurers; however before they could slay the foul beast another interviewed, her Saviour, who claimed she was a harmless creation of his which had lost its way and who offered to pay a handsome reward for finding her, which was readily accepted.

It was this great and powerful man who gave her purpose, who accepted her for what she had become; and as the years passed Jenn would do all she could to repay her Emperor for that moment of kindness, for in her eyes he was a Saint... even at his worst.

  Does anyone know a monk archetype or feat that allows them to use a katana?

I'm going to assume you mean Katana + Flurry and not simply taking Exotic Weapon Proficiency (katana), lol.

Between you and me, you're not the only person to have sought out that Holy Grail; why when I was a young smeet... but I digress  ::)

Bluntly, it doesn't exist.  Pretty sure of it.  But let me look over some options and see what deal I can cut you to make it happen.  ;)



@LSWSjr: Just to note, a monk can only ever be Lawful in alignment.  Also, was it the exotic beauty you wanted? (or did you make a switch?)

Well shit... I gave up on mysterous Beauty because I thought a couple of people wanted it. Right after sending in a profile for Exotic Beauty, someone's already submitted an.... ummm... exotic beauty.

Anyway, what the helll, here's mine

Catherine Sunkissed

Gender: Female
Model: ??
Alignment: Lawful Neutral; Race: Half-Elf
Class: Bard 2/Swashbuckler 1
Age: 102 (appears to be in late 20’s

Physical Description: Standing at an impressive 5’8, Catherine is a strikingly beautiful woman with long, sun-kissed blonde hair  that falls in soft curls to below her shoulders; accentuating an oval face dominated by bright amber eyes and full, kissable lips. Straight, coal-colored eyebrows and a narrows are set off in a darkly tanned, nearly latino complexion.

A long, slender neck, feminine shoulders and perky, full breasts, caped with large, dark nipples, flow into a taunt waistline before flaring out again into well rounded hips and a lovely, rounded rear. Her long, lean legs and toned arms with callused but delicate fingered hands leaves the impression of both grace and danger.

Personality: Catherine is, in her heart, a fiercely loyal and caring woman; prone to flighty, even girlish behavior with a decidedly leaning toward the baudy with those closest to her. On the outside, however, she displays a distant, even ruthless image that only heightens her exotic allure. A dedicated woman to the causes that she endorses, she can sometimes seem too single-minded and perhaps obsessive in seeing herself and her sisters through whatever trial they must face.



Background: 

If the stories were to be believed, Sonya’s father was an elven noble who dallied with the daughter of a human merchant. After a brief but torid affair, the elf; his name never uttered, left a pregnant girl to the compassions of a family humiliated by a daughter with child that had been intended to be married off to a wealthy husband within a few months.
Her mother was removed from the family house and left to fend for herself and her unborn child on the streets of a nameless city. All Sonya knew beyond this is that her mother died of fever before Sonya’s 10th birthday and that they had lived hand to mouth for as long as she could remember.

It only took a starving Sonya a few days to begin a life of petty crime and theft to stay alive; eventually falling in, more by luck than anything, with a gang of thieves who prayed upon the merchant class. For several months, the child ran nearly wild in the streets with her adopted family; learning the ticks and skills of a burglar and falling back upon her exotic looks and bright smile to con those too taken with her beauty. By the time that she was 15, she had given up her virginity to a street-tough and was selling herself for whatever the going rate was at the time. Not an easy life, but one that kept her fed and even allowed her to indulge her love of nice clothes.

It was during one of these evening events that Catherine’s life changed dastically.  She met a man who would spend the next 10 years shaping her into the well educated courtesan that she would become… and perhaps more important to the young woman, the means to defend herself with both wit and blade. When the deed was done, Catherine had shed the rough shell of the catapiller for the colorful wings of a butterfly… more or less. When her benefactor died after a riding accident, she found herself sucked into the intrigues of the royal court and bedding a noble who thought more of himself than his king… and lacked the common sense to keep his mouth shut on the pillows after striking her… She wasn’t unhappy when the man hanged, but her own lovely neck was nearly stretched as well!

Fortune struck again as a foreign power  not only invaded, but stormed the palace and captured the king and nobles in a celebratory feast after the hanging. Catherine, chained and placed naked in the center of the throne room. Her first sight of the warlord did more than took her breath; her heart stopped for what felt like an eternity as he and 4 women in mask took the king captive and demanded the surrender of the entire court. Unable to speak, Catherine felt the first breath of her life as the man approached her and looked down at her with dark eyes. “What is your crime girl?” he asked in a deep voice; a voice that made her body humm with it’s caress.

“vengeance upon a noble who abused me, M’Lord. For daring to seek justice in the only way that was open to me.”

“And your punishment?”

Catherine swallowed, but did not look away, “To be hanged on the morrow.”

Death for seeking justice… Hardly just, is it?” He turned to the king, “Free her and I will allow you to live in exile, never to touch freedom again.”

With the chains removed, Catherine crawled to his feet and knelt before him, uncaring of her nudity, “Take me with you M’Lord, Allow me to serve and I will vow myself to you always.”

The tall man paused and gazed down at her, “The battlefield is no place for you. I will give you enough to see you secure child.”

“I beg you M’Lord, there is no place for me and I would follow.. I will follow.”

When he left, the kingdom firmly under his thumb and order restored, Catherine followed him and spent months trying to prove herself through both her blade and what little advice he might accept… finally, in an unexpected laugh, he accepted her with a hard slap on the ass and a push toward the other women who followed him. “I cannot rid myself of you girl, you might as well join the others.”

Over the next decades, the women that followed her Lord became more than friends, more than sisters and only with them and him did she allow herself to show her truths. Virtually celibate for the long years; her eyes were trained on him and him alone, her only comfort came from her sisters and dreams of being held in his arms… She knew that if she could win that part of him, she would never want for touch again.

She watched with a blind eye as he began to change; as the masked women who shared both his dreams and his bed became twisted and more and more ambitious, until at long last, her sisters forced her eyes open and she chose, with great reluctance, to join them in doing what must be done for the good of the world. The blood-bath to break into the center of his power was deep and violet; until they stood before the 4 masked women… his furies… and the secret was revealed. Catherine looked into the older, darker eyes of herself and dispared for the first time in many, many years. “What have I done!” she screamed at herself, but it all came too late as the world about them broke open…. And blackness reigned.

Then… her eyes opened again to find herself in a different place… a different time… and a younger, good man who she aleady worshipped… could she change what was to be? Could she save herself, her sisters and een her heart’s desire? Surely this second chance could not lead to the ruin of the first.

Well, I was going for Bloodrager / Kensai, but the Exotic seems to be pretty popular. So, here's my take on the Tainted beauty:

"Tainted Beauty"
Anhiri

Gender: Female
Model: Tainted Beauty
Alignment: N; Race: Tiefling
Class: Psychic (Abomination)
Age: 90

Physical Description: Although she be but little, she is fierce- Midsummer Night's Dream.

Standing at a diminutive 4' tall, with a slim, modestly curved figure,  Anhiri seems to have traded stature for pronounced infernal features. Her skin is the color of soot over steel, contrasted by a shock of pure white hair that gleams in the light. Couple this with the deep red markings that seem to travel across her skin from day to day, and the wickedly curved horns that sprout from her temples, and you have a figure that will easily stand out in a crowd.

Usually for the safety of those around her.

Personality: While Anhiri may not be evil, she's definitely not what you would call "good" either. Sure, she abides by the law (mostly), and will commit herself to those she cleaves onto... but that's mostly because these things make life easier in the long run. Generally, she's just... calm. She has goals, her friends have goals... and she will see them accomplished.

Whatever else happens is just circumstance.

Background: Work in Progress- Her psychic power is tainted by the Dark Tapestry, and her Dark Half plays a prominent role. Still writing out the specifics.

Welcome back Blue Leah, thought we'd lost you for a second there!  Look forward to seeing the rest.

Again, as a note to everyone, don't feel constrained to create characters based on roles others have expressed interest in, and on that note, don't feel constrained to make one character only  ;)

Also, if you guys would like to link backgrounds etc, based of what you've seen from another's character feel free.  Nothing is set in stone until the character is accepted, so you can continue to change them around and refine them until they've been chosen as the certified Furies  >:)

Nope, didn't lose me. Just needed to tweak the concept, rather than having a bunch of characters completing for the same slot / archetype. I know you keep saying don't worry about redundancy, but I prefer to try and fill in the gaps on games like this.
