That's a perfect example of what you can do to help others understand and get a feel for your idea. It gives the reader some insight and possible inspiration with a chance to come up with a corrosponding character, theme, and/or setting. Some people can get carried away in their excitement and go into greater detailing, but so long as you're point and thoughts are clear, it will work all the same. I do more reading than posting and tend to be picky about which stories to pick up. I play a dominant, and highly stuborn female and enjoy more action and story than romance. We seem to share a common genre though. I have faith you'll easily find partners. Any decisions from me will take time.
As I was reading this, I was not exactly sure if you were talking about my post or Chelemar's so in the end, I assumed that you were talking about both. Thank you for the tips there, of course, and I will remember them whenever I write a request or ask someone if I could join in their RP. English wasn't the language I was exactly raised with so sometimes I lack confidence in how I use it and there are even times people take what I say in the wrong way so I apologize if I seem worried about what or who I write to every now and then. And yes, if you meant the medieval fantasy genre, then yeah that's be a common genre and I do in fact like female characters who don't always succumb to the stereotypical persona (that means always being the damsel in distress and what not). I hope to hear your decision soon but much like my situation, best to give that time too.
Sure that sounds fine.
for example: If I were to give you this character:
Elana Neinhold Goes by: Elana the gray (she is neither black nor white, and thus fits only in the gray worlds)
Half elf, half human
Minimal magic to her horror
Outcast by both peoples, at birth by her mother's people when it was obvious that she was elf-conceived. Outcast by her elven family when it was discovered upon reaching puperty that her human blood overcame her elven and blocked her elf magic.
Taken in by her Elven grandfather, who cared nothing for tradition and everything for the girl, he spirited the girl away and raised her in the art of battle. She might have limited magic, but she was still, as an elf, stronger than most humans.
Weight: 130 lbs
Wears a headband always to disguise her ears. Has a golden tint to her skin which helps hide her elven nature.
Thin as elves are prone to be, though more muscular as she has trained hard with bow and blade.
Weapons of choice: Long bow, long staff,
Dagger for close combat
Her minimal magic allows her to sense danger, but with only a few minutes warning.
She's walks her own path now that her beloved grandfather has died. To make money, she works as a merc, and will and does bed whom she pleases. She enjoys a good drink, a good laugh, a good meal and a good fire. Though she has a touch exterior, she also has a good heart and will often champion the underdog. And to her horror, her bad temper can get her into trouble even though she tries to curtail it.
She will hook up with a companion upon occasion if they are traveling the same path, but rarely forms long lasting attachments.
Hmm, are you telling me that if I wanted to request an RP, it would be best if I include a little info about the character I'll be playing? That would be very convenient, I admit. Your character sounds like a very interesting one as well, especially the part of her being 'gray' meaning she's not one of the ordinary elves nor is she among the dark elves - in fact, I think this is the first time I've heard of an elf character that has this trait. I cannot say anything for sure about how the characters will react to each other as that also depends on what you or your character thinks about him; in my experience in Role Playing the genre, elves and humans don't always go along with each other lol Anyways, I'll do what I can:Name:
Goraidh Cadwyn a.k.a RaidGender:
235 lbsHair Color:
Fighter/SwordsmanWeapon(s) of Choice:
Long SwordAdditional Info:Master Swordsmanship
People have called him with many names, ranging from the 'White Blade' to the 'Crow Knight', but either way, he is known for his amazing swordsmanship. He has been trained with the use of the sword for so many years to the point that his life in battle solely depends on his grip with one, and this also allows him to turn the tables whenever against any opponent in close-combat.Inability with Magic
As if a fair sacrifice was made, his great swordsmanship was balanced with the fact that he is unable to use even the most simplest of magic. This especially puts him in a great disadvantage in a fight against mages or generally those who could execute spells. He could, of course, use weapons or items enchanted with magic, but unable to work with magic itself sometimes calls for him to require the aid of a partner who can.Lack of Social Appeal
Though Raid can actually be gentle and has a good heart, a lot of people can easily assume him as someone who lacks a social life or many comrades. This can happen because of various reasons, one of which is the common: his appearance. Being 6'2" in height and always carrying his weapon around, his stern expression and his hair at his fringe that usually shadows over his eyes do little to attract people - many people can sometimes mistook him as a rogue or a bandit.Unexpected Traits
As mentioned earlier, many people tend to be intimidated by him without him even intending so, but those who come to know him always find the unexpected traits in the human. For one, underneath that usual expression that always seem to look like a scowl, actually lies a handsome frame. Raid is also apparently very weak towards alcohol and actually prefers a warm glass of milk over them on any day. Like Chelemar though, he is far from actually being a virgin and does not mind when things lead to the bed - though given how his personality is far from romantic, that doesn't happen a lot.
Hope I didn't write too little, or write too much!
