Okay,  sounds good.  Do we have an eta on character sheets?  I still needed to hammer out the details of my power set and thing as well.  Who should I talk to, if I have questions on powers?
Either post them here (no doubt others have questions too... and probably the same ones... so this is just helpful to everyone) or send them directly to Elysian Radiance and myself. Elysian and I should be working on our character sheets either today or tomorrow and post them as examples along with the template.

We have not decided on a set number as of yet.

Oh. I've seen her before.

-thinks-

Nadezhda Neyasova



Also, tentatively withdrawing Derek Theler claim.


Claiming Channing Tatum for a dragon, paired with Flower.

Yep, that certainly does look like her.

This is the list of unpaired players we have at the moment. If you still don't have a partner, I would suggest taking a look at this list and PMing someone to try and work out something. Again, keep in mind that you DO NOT have to be romantically/sexually involved with each other. Since we seem to have more dragons than riders, the two that I have marked with asterisks have stated that they can swap to riders if need be. This may be the case, as we have double the dragons to riders.

Riders
Tsuunade
VioletPanda
Thorne

Dragons
Aida Rose
Skyre
Alcandre
Aribeth**
Relikai

I think I'm drooling a little. Excuse me while I wipe this up real quick...

I'm interested in being a Green Dragon that turns into an elf. So, Lady Dragon here who would be looking for a rider.

Edit: My dragon will be a lesbian. Just fyi for any interested.

Seeing as this is where we sit, I can switch to rider now :) Alcandre, will you have me as your lawfully bonded dragon rider?

Well let me put my ideas down.  So my character is entirely magic based and completely useless otherwise, unless it's in the bedroom..Heheheh. but anyways,  his power I think is a bit stronger then the norm,  well.. maybe.  He will have full stats on magic but also be a bit young. He won't be that strong at first but grow and learn quickly.

Minor: Like the Dnd spell alter self.  A real utility spell. If he needs to he can give himself gills,  or anal wings enough to glide down from a fall.  Maybe if he is quick enough strengthen his skin to reduce damage a bit. Or as simple as changing hair color,  having a tall,  or small cosmetic changes.

Minor: Not sure about these minors... maybe a small telekinesis?

Minor: A poket dimension. Basically a portable bag of holding.  Unlimited storage space.  Nothing huge,  but for all those knickknacks he loves to collect.  *demon voice* AND THE TROPHIES OF ALL THE FOOLS WHO DARED OPPOSE HIM! Just kidding lol. 


Major:Crystal-mancy. Like the name, basically the manipulation and creation of diamonds like crystals.  Able to manipulate they're deity and structure even maybe their refraction index to try and reflect things more.  Is mostly going to be defensive like building walls around a campsite,  armor for my dragon,  a big sword,  maybe be able to throw shards? Or for building decoys.  Not game changing but would be semi permenant. Like after a battle the landscape would be covered with broken crystal pillars and shattered crystal statutes that will last for many years or until he dies.  It's going to be his basic main power.  It's really versatile so he could create a tiny necklace for someone with little drain or create a fortress and pass out for several days.  Still trying to figure out the balance.

Major: Some sort of healing.  Not sure if I want to do martyr heading where the wounds must go somewhere,  or since this is a major slot,  it could just be a really strong heal.

Supreme: not really sure... was thinking about maybe some he learns so well, use this as a kind of ability to learn others powers.  Never as strong as the original but an ability to grow his arsenal.  Not sure about this one,  this is mostly what I had to ask about. 

Or this supreme could be like animate life.  In die situations be able to create a bunch of knight statutes with his crystal ability and then animate some of them to fight with his supreme.


So yeah,  need to decide on the minors and supreme still.  What do you guys think?  My rational for the strong majors are because he has max in magic.  So yeah... feel free to comment and give feedback.

Be my bonded rider! I would love that!

Perhaps I am thinking too deeply about this, but what do the Dragons get out of the deal?  They are large immortal creatures and can look Humanoid if they wish.  So other than having this bond, which amounts to possible magical slavery, why do they tolerate it? What do the humans bring to the table?  How does the dynamic really play out?  Does being bonded to the dragon provide any longevity to the Humans?  What happens to one part of the pair if the other dies? 

I'm sure more questions will come to me, and if I missed any of this please point it out to me.  I'm working on my rider now and these questions came up.  Thanks.

Maybe it has something to do with their power for starters.  They only can achieve their maximum potential with a rider.  Like for example most of my powers are compliments to hers and to support her.  I'm probably weird being submissive to my dragon but still.  Maybe with a rider they believe they can do something more.  Or even is like an unspoken law in the nature of the dragon that they have a need to find their bond mate.

Those are just off the top of my head.  If I really had to,  I could probably come up with a decent argument.  Though it's not really my place as is not my world.

I have an interest and would need a partner seeing as I didn't bring one myself.  I just need to ponder the character creation bit a little more.  Planning a Human Mage, Rider.  Not much more beyond that yet though.

The Inner Flame
The bond between Dragons and Riders

It's a bond on both a magical and spiritual level; a force that brings two distinctly different souls together and links them. In many ways the experience is like finding ones soul mate. For a rider it grants a companion who can teach them and enable them, it opens opportunity to them unlike anything else that could be naturally achieved. For a dragon, however, it is so much more. The legends of the bond are shrouded in mystery, but there is a universal truth. To have the Inner Flame ignited within you is a sacred honor among the dragons, it elevates them to a whole different social standing. It is said that the Inner Flame is fueled by breath of life given to the world by Mu, of the Sky - the first dragon.

  • Bonded individuals may telepathically communicate across any distance with their partner; this communication does not allow for transmission of senses or inherit knowledge of the other, rather pure communication.
  • Riders of the bond have their lives enriched by the essence of their draconic counterpart, enabling them to live longer natural lives; bonded Humans have been known to live upwards of 250 years, while Elves climb to closer to 1000.
  • Both Riders & Dragons are empowered by the Inner Flame; while it is not 'supernatural' they are stronger, faster and more resilient then others of their kin. They're given an edge, so to speak. Further those bonded never fear natural illness - no rider has ever been grounded due to a cold.
  • Once sparked the Inner Flame can not be quelled outside of death of one half of the bond. In such cases the remaining half is not out right killed however it is a fairly traumatic experience to have part of oneself, essentially, obliterated. This often leads to great bouts of depression or self imposed exile.
  • For the dragon, to have their Inner Flame ignited is quite the honor and triggers a very primal sense of fulfillment within them. More importantly the dragons are able to do more with this bond; to have the Inner Flame is the first step on the draconic path of ascension - the details of this are largely hazy, but it is a fairly big deal within their culture to have it (though that does not mean that everyone who has it particularly is glad that they got it).

What do the Dragons get out of the deal?
Hopefully this is cleared up in the section about the bond itself. For the dragons it's a path to something more - they are immortal beings, but to become greater then they are, to unlock the true secrets of themselves is something only attainable by having the Inner Flame. This is, actually, a subject I hope to touch on during game play itself.

How does the dynamic really play out?
This is largely something that is unique to each rider pair. How one Dragon Rider and their companion handle and work together is usually going to be very different then how another set does it. Typically - though it has been known to take years to work out - they come to some sort of agreement, since they are more or less stuck with one another, about how to handle their situation. While it's possible in some cases this is out right domination - one way or the other - it is far more typical for some sort of partnership to be formed.

No one wants to say this will happen, but what happens if during game play a player leaves. What happens to the bonded person?
This is, unfortunately, a reality of group games. It's particularly difficult given the nature of this game and how important pairs are. However we are prepared to handle this. In such cases there is an in character precident for new bonds being formed between one half of a previously bonded pair and someone new who does not yet have a bond. Unfortunately there's no good way to get around the traumatic experience for the character left... But in such a case we will address it then and handle it in a way that is most appropriate at the time. Suffice to say we have methods of making sure someone is not left behind, and if it does come up there are a number of options we're prepared to offer to ensure the remaining player isn't just out right shafted.
