Scar

05/01/2013 08:24 PM 

A Few Rules

(Copy and pasted from my account on Roleplayer)I've been needing to completely revamp my rules blog but have held it off for so long. Most of these rules are the same, with some additions. 1). No godmodding, autoing or any of that sort. It's common sense and you should already know this. If not, why are you here?2). Do your best to use correct grammar and spelling, I understand mistakes happen but keep in mind that spelling mistakes should be to a bare minimum. Chances are, your web browser has spell check, use it. If English isn't your first language, I will be more kind about it, since English is in no way an easy language to learn. Also, absolutely no text speaking to me whatsoever. This includes OOC chat as well. This is one of the things that bug the hell out of me. Messages/comments with text speak on them will be ignored.3). Please keep messages for rps. I can keep up with an rp much better through messages. With OOC, either format is fine. Also, distinguish the difference between OOC chat and rp.4). Rp lengths: I am mostly a para rper, semi-para if I'm not feeling 100%, and I expect the same from you as well. Sometimes I can pump out larger replies but that's not always a given. No novella rp with me please. I honestly don't have the time for that. Also, no one liners, especially one liner starters. That's not going to go anywhere. Another thing, I at least like setting up a basic storyline discussion before rping. At least then, we both know what we are getting into.5). Keep in mind that Scar doesn't really care about others, if that bothers you then don't bother with me. Also, if you don't like the way I rp as him, don't bother with me either. I have a distinct way I rp him based on everything that has happened to him during his life, even before the movie. That ties into on how I rp him.6). No stupid bullshit when rping with me. By that I mean, no hugging or any of the cutsie crap. Scar is a full grown wild lion, just keep that in mind. If such cutsie things are sent, expect them to be ignored.7). ABSOLUTELY NO DRAMA. I will not tolerate it. The moment you try to start something with me, I will delete and block you. This is the number one thing that will, most likely, be the only reason why I'd have to delete anyone. 8). If you are here thinking I am going to rp some bestiality fantasy of yours, don't even bother adding me. In fact, if that is your plan and you've added me, delete me from your list. I do not do such rps. This is another thing that will get you deleted and blocked right away.9). No, I do not have a human form/playby for Scar. I know this has become popular, for some reason. I personally hate the idea, but I'm not going to judge those who have such forms. Just keep in mind I don't have one and I never will.10). Speaking of humans, I can rp with human characters as Scar. We'd have to discuss a storyline for that since I don't have Scar leave Africa, meaning the human character has to come there. Also, things go by smoother if the human character can understand Scar.11). Do not act like a damn child and spam my inbox/comments with messages "demanding" me to do something. This happened and you know what happened to the one who did it to me? They got blocked. The same will happen to you if you do the same. Actually, don't spam my inbox/comments in general. If you sent something once, chances are I read it. 12). I understand the not everyone on here is compatible with rping with Scar but they may be a fan of the character and/or the movie. I'm alright with you requesting me and as long as you don't give me no problems, we'll be fine. If this applies to you, don't be afraid to speak to me in OOC. Most the times I'm up for talking and if not at the moment, I'll kindly inform you. If it turns out your character is compatible to rp with one of my other characters, I'll let you know of that as well.13). I understand many of the Disney based characters are part of some sort of RPG, usually one that has all the Disney characters. Please understand that I don't want to join such groups. That doesn't mean I won't rp or talk with you if you are part of one of these groups. Many I talk to/rp with are part of one of these groups. If you ask me if I want to join, I'll kindly tell you I don't want to. Don't push me into joining. That'll irritate me and cause me to delete and block you.14). I am not going to keep reminding you that you owe me a reply. If you haven't gotten anything back from me, then chances are you owe me a reply. If you are unsure, or believe I do owe you, don't be afraid to let me know or ask me. If you don't bother to let me know, I'll just assumed you ignored the reply and that the rp is dead and over with.15). Alright, this is a BIG one if you are Scar's mate. If you happen to go inactive for a MONTH (30 days), without any warning, I will consider Scar to be single. I once waited for over 4 months for a previous mate to return and she never did so a month is now the limit. If you happen to come back after that month limit and Scar isn't with anyone, then they could still possibly be mates, but if he is with someone new, oh well, not my problem.16.) Make sure you've read these rules. Once done doing so, sign on the comments section here, that you have read them. Oh, and actually read them too because if you signed them and end up breaking them, I probably won't be so kind then. I won't get that upset if you break a simple rule, I'll let you know you did, but the more important ones, the ones that can get you blocked, I'll be upset about.

TIP: Uploading Images

Here is the answer to your question "Why did my image not upload to the website?" Images with the wrong file extension (gif / png / jpg) will not upload. SOLUTION: Rename the file extension. In this example all 3 image files look fine in Windows, but 2 of them have the wrong file name extension. JPG is the correct extension. We need to rename the GIF and PNG files to end in JPG. If you run into the same problem, you may have rename your image too, however keep in mind that your image type may need to be renamed to have PNG instead of JPG, or vice versa. See the video below.

Resident Evil: Chapter 1 Great Escape

The year, 1999, one year after The Raccoon City incident. Umbrella's Albert Wesker has joined a hidden group known only to my knowledge as "The Organization" to demolish Umbrella. With the help of our informant, "Black Cat", I was able to successfully infiltrate Alber Wesker's employment as a mercenary for hire. My code name is "Vox", and these are my files. 1:42 AM May, 5, 1999.      Bang, bang, bang!. A loud crash. He looks, but sees nothing. The banging is coming from everywhere and nowhere. It is all around. The smell of wet mud sticks in his nose. His hand reached out. Something flat and hard. A wall?. His hands touch something warm, but what? Something wet. Bang, bang bang. The sounds drew closer: Gun shots? Will they hear them too?     "Damn it, I have to get out of here", he huffed.     Lights flickered on; a porch lamp. A door? He reached for it and twist the handle.     "Damn it, LOCKED!", things were grim. The door was steel.      His hand, there was blood, but not his. The wall of the apartment building was covered in it. He looked down, and then he noticed: a dead body. A solider? No. He was dressed like one, but this was no solider, that was a mercenary laying there on the ground dead. He bent down, and checked for a key. What's this? A Hand-gun?     Bang, bang, bang!. The sound was right behind him. Then a scream, the type that gives one nightmares. Man? Girl? Too obscure to tell. Then silence, the banging stopped. No. A new sound. Like countless low claps: the sound of trampling feet through mud. They were so close. Right on top of him. Gripping the pistole, he turned quickly. BANG!....      The door swung open. He shot the lock and rushed in. Fumbling through the darkness he found a heavy metal table and pinned it up against the door. A loud crash. He was almost pushed down, but kept up against the door with the table. The sounds of insane grunts and squirming low pitched yells. Those things, they were relentless. The sound and feeling of them clawing at the metal door cringed the teeth. Where they going to get in? Just then, and loud crash. An explosion? Where? Upstairs fire ripped through. The sound of wood cracking: the ceiling was giving way! He got up, and dove further inside the building. The ceiling caved in the room. Fire spilled down with rubble over the steel door. It was blocked.      Getting up, the man pulled some wooden plank rubble off his body. Did he get away? Was he safe? The fire was hot and the smoke burnt the eyes and choked the lungs. But there was light now. "Damn", he coughed, "Things are getting worser by the second."     More banging. From behind? He looked. The front door was being bombarded. The clawing moans again. They're everywhere, all around. Can't escape.     He looked around. The stairs! He made a dash for them and began rushing up. The sound of wood splintering off hinges. They got in! They're coming for him. He moved quickly to the second floor. There was fire everywhere. Using his coat, he covered his face and jumped over a smoldering support beam. They were still coming! He gripped the banister at the edge and used it to turn sharply around the next corner. He ran as fast as he could to the third floor but they just kept coming. The building shook: giving way from the fire. He ran down the hall and turned sharply again up the third flight of stairs. A hard shake. He collapse on the stairs and gripped hold to the banister. Their shadows, he could see them. They were right behind him! He moved quickly to his feet and suddenly the stair case gave way. The whole third floor staircase caved down, but the man wasn't giving so easily. He jumped and reached out. The fire roared upwards. The heat was tremendous, and the smoke was unbearable. But he had to bear it, or he was dead.     Holding tight, he was gripping part of the stairs that were left. He reached up with his other arm and began to pull himself up to safety. Was he out? No! Something grabbed his boot. Them? Again? He pulled himself up as much as he could. Pulling his free leg up, he sent it back down, and nailed whatever it was hard. He was free. Pulling himself up to the third floor. On his hands and knees he took a deep breath of smoked air. He turned and saw. A door to the roof! Taking his chances he stood up. He ran to the door and with a hard shoulder burst through it. Fresh air!     He stumbled; getting his bearings. The building started to shake, and that's when he felt it. A loud creek followed by an even louder crash down below. The fire's brush through the window of the apartment and it began to collapse. There was no time to think, he just ran forward and kept running. The door he just came from, it burst into flames. His foot came down on the edge of the building, and jumped. He went through the air and the apartment building collapsed behind him. Weightless and dropped until he felt the cold feeling of water. He plunged into a large river below. His body sank, he didn't move.       He kept sinking until his back pocket rang with a blue glow. Ring ring, ring ring,. A call? His eyes opened up and his body moved. He swam for the surface. He moved faster and more franticly. He was already light headed.     "AH!" He yelled as he brush to the surface.      He huffed for air and swam back to shore. Sliding his body onto a large slab of stone he rejoiced in the fresh air. Ring ring, ring ring. The call rang.      "Black cat, is that you?" he answered the small, flat , blue glowing, pentagon looking device.      "I thought you might find this interesting", spoke a female voice over the call. "A strange call was picked up just now. Apparently Albert Wesker is meeting up with a man who calls himself 'El Comerciantes.'"     "'The Dealer' Huh? Sounds interesting alright. Where will he be?"      "The Shard Building. You have Three hours. Get Moving, Vox"

Online People vs. Browse People

A few members have told us that they don't like the new "Browse" feature because they feel that the way "Browse" used to work was better. We want to let everyone know that the old "Browse" was actually the same thing as "Online". Some may not have realized this but until we setup the new "Browse" feature, the Browse menu forwarded you to "Online". Now when you click "Browse", you see a search page, not a list of online members. If you prefer to see only people who are online, click "Online". Hopefully this video helps everyone understand the differences and similarities of "Online" and "Browse". Contact Support if you have any questions.

InuYasha Verse Starter #1

A mother and father once met. They were always bickering with one another. but soon, that bickering became words of advise.Those words of advise became long talks. Those long talks made them best friends. Soon enough, those best friends became lovers. There was no love that could match these two. Forbidden love between a half human half dog demon man and a pure mortal human girl. They fought many battles together growing closer with each passing day and soon they had married and had a child, a beautiful little girl whom they named Akina Higurashi. This little female was full of promise, the heart of her mother and the determination of her father. She was a beautifully mixed combination of her mother and father. This female's natural hair is white and eyes as gold as her fathers, and skin soft like her mothers with the shade of her fathers. She was everything like her father InuYasha, physically wise. Except she was more balanced and graceful like a feline. Her kindness was just as well known as her mothers Kagome's. And her short temper like her fathers. Her body was an athletic build and the now 18 year old stood at 5'7". White hair fell down to her lower back, ears pointed upward and she had a long bushy white tail. Lastly, she had distinguishing marks on her cheeks and wrists. That much similar to her uncle Sesshomaru.She looked out from a window in a palace that rested on side of a mountain  surrounded by forest in the western lands. The lands that her uncle Sesshomaru rules over. She wore a mid length yukata that showed her rank upon these palace grounds. Royal blood. Her yukata's first layer that was seen from the collar and extended sleeves and her mid thigh were a crimson red followed by the last layer that was a brilliant white silk and a large red obi tied around her waist. She left her white hair flow down in it's natural waves. "Akina..." spoke a low male voice. Akina glanced across the room to see her father standing there. With a smile he said, "C'mon brat. We're leaving." and he left. She got up and walked out but took a look back at her favorite room in her uncle's palace. Despite it being empty. She walked out and met up with her mother and father near the front gates. "Goodbye." Her uncle simply said and Akina just gave a nod. She didn't talk much to her uncle because he didn't really speak to her. "We'll see you three soon." Said a cheerful brown haired female that stood by Sesshomaru's side. A little green creature came up and smiled as well. Kagome hugged the female, Sesshomaru and the green creature. "It was nice to see you three again, Rin." spoke her mother. They exchanged a nod before being off on their way. "Akina...you're awfully quiet. You're usually full of joy when we come here and disappointed when we leave." said her mother. Akina glanced over and gave her mother a shrug, "Eh. I don't know honestly...." but she did know. The only reason she was excited to come and spend weeks at her uncles was to sneak out at night to test her abilities in the forest. Abilities her parents were somewhat aware of but thought they had disappeared long ago when she was an infant. But she also snuck out to listen in on her father and uncle speak of battles. She sighed as she thought about the two day journey back home. It was now hours after they had left and her mother and father lay in deep sleep. Akina did not hesitate to miss this chance and she left their camp area for a waterfall that was 30 minutes ahead.Eventually she made it to the waterfall and took off her white silk layer and entered the cool water, walking deeper towards the deep end. she closed her eyes as a light blue glowing orb came up from the water and floated in front of her. She opened her eyes and smiled as it flew around her.

Guidelines Of The Kingdom

These are the common rules of role-play, and are the essential rules when role-playing with me. These rules will include things like godmodding, metagaming, and autohitting. One of the fundamental skills that every good role-player has is the aptitude to follow and abide by these rules. So, no excuses. Even though everybody has the occasional slip-up, that's fine. However, any kind of disregarding of these common rules will be frowned upon and result in immediate action from me. Got it? Good.   DO NOT GOD-MODE!- Let's break it down. What is Godmodding? Well it is when a character features god-like abilities, such as invincibility or mind control, or other unrealistic powers that don't fit with the lore. It's also considered godmodding to refuse death in fights or ignore role-players in scenarios in which said role-players are attempting to attack you. For example, "I can kill you with a single touch." *She reaches to touch his skin, and if she succeeds, his flesh will fall off of his bones.* Nobody's good at everything; try and keep yourself in check.   DO NOT OVERPOWER YOURSELF OR OTHERS- Related to NO. 1, being "overpowered" is more or less what it sounds like, giving something or someone an unreasonable, unfair, unrealistic, or unbalanced amount of power, especially when it interferes with the ability of players around you to have fun. This can apply in the obvious ways, like having a character who is invincible or can summon the wrath of a zombie army with a flick of his fingers, but it can also be more subtle. For example, a character who is physically average but has skill mastery of over 70% of all main skills with ease can also be overpowered and put a damper on the ability of those around him to create engaging and challenging roleplay scenarios.   DO NOT METAGAME- Metagaming is when a player applies OOC-retrieved information to their IC character, such as participating in a war that you happened to see or hear about happening on someone else thread, and knowing about a character just because you saw their information. This is the most commonly broken rule of role-play and most infuriating. Only certain individuals, the ones listed on a person's information, or canons know the character personally. An example being, after being sent a PM greeting from someone named Chad *Jeremy the necromancer teleport into the scene immediately and rushes to the corpse of his buddy Chad, just moments after the arrow pierced his heart.*   DO NOT MIX IC AND OOC- Related to metagaming, it is considered taboo to "mix ic and ooc." For me I typically encourage not to associate information, or events that occur outside of role-playing unless we've known each other a while. Most often, when players associate OOC information with their IC behavior, whether it be how they perceive another character or actually acting on information they wouldn't otherwise have, it's called metagaming. However, it's also considered poor form to take IC information and apply it OOC. That is, if character A insults character B, and player B takes character A's insult as a personal attack from player A rather than exclusively an IC attack on character B, which is what mixing IC and OOC means. Confused? Player B is holding a grudge against Player A for what his/her character said or did in character. This violates this rule.   DO NOT AUTO (AUTO-HIT, AUTO-WALK, ETC)- Auto hitting is when a player performs an action without giving the affected players a chance to respond. For example, running up to somebody and saying *Stabs in the heart* then running off would be a form of auto hitting. Auto also applies to non-combative actions to which another player might have a reaction. This includes auto walking, auto speaking, ect. Need an example? Like saying, *the black knight slips past the guards and into the castle,* so while the white knights are minding their own business guarding the entrance to the knight's castle a player slips by? This would be auto walking on the premise that, in all likelihood, those knights would stop them before the player could get past them. This can easily be fixed with a simple rewording. Add "tries to" or "attempts to" to clarify that your character intends to perform said action, but his success depends on the responses of those around him. More advanced role-players will go into detail with their actions and emphasize their attempts. This is a frequently broken rule by newer role-players. However, I've been known to overlook this rule if pre-planned. Discussing pre-planned events annuls this rule, just don't add onto more than was discussed because then we might have a problem.   WARN BEFORE YOU KILL- It is considered polite to obtain permission from a player before attempting to kill his/hers character. This courtesy is a respect for the sentimental connection that can form between a player and his/hers character. Some individual's feel that each player has the right to choose the circumstances of his/hers character's death. A common variation of this rule is to, rather than ask permission, warn the player of your character's intentions so that the player may have his/hers character make decisions to help allow or block the fatal blow. Common exceptions to this rule include characters who initiate combat, characters who have committed acts such that they know they have enemies, characters in high-profile positions like kings who should expect frequent attempts on their lives, and characters on battlefields.   ATTACK JUSTIFICATION- It is also considered polite to, if a player controlling an opponent character requests, offer legitimate justification for their character initiating combat. This is a protection against metagamers in that the opponent player wants to make sure that your character is not attacking for out-of-character reasons, like personal disagreement or boredom, and that player's character is in danger honestly. The opposite side of this coin is that, after justification is given, your opponents character is obligated not to use that information unless it is also shared in-character.     DO NOT LORE-BREAK- Lore breaking is when a character breaks lore, which is practically anything that likely affects a character or scenario that doesn't belong within the verse. The basis for these commonalities is origin, culture, and known historical events. For example, *Broaven the Rellekan sailor is an established water mage and heads into the settlement to meet up with his other shipmates and use his magic to help them on their next trip.*Lore-bending, a similar term, is when existing lore is lightly modified (Hence the term lore-bending), but not significantly or in a way that detracts from the role-playing experience. Often this has to do with ideas that are neither supported nor contradicted by existing lore; for example, one never comes across a goblin who excels with traditional magic, but it is never explicitly stated that this can't ever be done - only that you rarely come across it. There are exceptions to this rule, an example being your favorite character from a certain verse dies, or your character is the offspring to a canon, and if you are a more experienced role-player you can find ways to bending the lore into something tolerable for most individuals.   DO NOT POWER-PLAY- Power-play occurs when a player operates someone else's character without the other player's consent. The most obvious example, "Your character falls off the cliff as he/she walks up to it not paying attention." As you can see, not only is this unfair to the other player, but it's also discouraged because often players will misconstrue the behaviors and personalities of characters they didn't design. Power-playing goes into more subtle situations, however. Saying, "Sally charges Jack so fast that he wouldn't be able to react enough to avoid it," can also be considered a violation of this rule since Sally's player has controlled Jack's abilities, possibly in a way that doesn't accurately represent his character. The appropriate way to word Sally's attack would be, "Sally charges Jack so fast that it's unlikely he could totally dodge it without equally inhuman speed." This leaves it up to Jack's player whether or not Jack is actually capable of avoiding Sally.   PLAYING MARY-SUES- The definition of a "Mary Sue" is difficult to nail down, because the meaning has changed over time as the character type has migrated out of fanfiction and into canon. So, in attempt to explain I'm going to cover as much as possible. So, first a Mary-Sue is a specific kind of character that is usually considered literately reprehensible and otherwise unpleasant for others to play alongside. A Mary-Sue is any character (of any gender, age, race, or species) who fits one or more of these descriptions, a character who's too perfect, a copy of another character with a few changes, lacking realistic or logical flaws, or whose flaws do not affect them in real ways. A character who's idealized or made "better". (E.g. more attractive, smarter, given skills, abilities & powers without the flaws, quirks & limits that make them interesting and real.) There are many faces of Mary Sue, but I picked the most common of them to explain. CANON SUE, a canon sue is the corruption of a legitimate canon character within the fandom to the point that they resemble the fanfic author itself. They may acquire new powers, undergo a makeover (including the dreaded Hot Topic punk variety), they will become good friends or become enemies with canon characters that they usually wouldn't be with , or just act completely out of character in a way that makes those familiar with the canon scream in horror. However, there are a select few immunities such as the Joker. The crown prince of crime is entirely unpredictable and extremely vindictive. His insanity, which causes slight personality changes within him, can cause him to be a silly, comedic prankster one moment, a twisted considerate lover or an irrational, ruthless killer the next. But, don't be fooled. The criminal aspect of his personality will continuously remain the same, no matter what persona he takes. So, you can encounter five Jokers at the exact time, each with a slight different personality without him being a Sue.   ORIGINAL CHARACTERS OC'S- Unfortunately, countless OCs conclusion end up as Mary Sues, which is why people often stay away from OC-centric fics. It's much easier to do this than to give the benefit of the doubt that a select few original character are not just another Mary Sue. Now, it's perfectly acceptable to write a strong, intelligent, beautiful character. It's also perfectly tolerable to have them liked by the canon characters in the universe they are related with. These traits only become an issue when they're written at the expense of other characters. The original character, and the lore of the verse must go hand in hand. So, even if you love your OC to bits, don't forget about the other characters. Think carefully about their canon traits and whether it would make sense for them to act a certain way toward someone else's character. After all, the canon characters (and universe) are what drew you in to start with right? Respect the canon of the fandom you're writing for, and that fandom will respect you too.   THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE- A player has the right to choose not to role-play with a certain character or other player whose standards conflict with his/hers own. With that being said, if I don't enjoy participating in our storyline, or feel I'm having trouble cooperating with, or it clashes with my storyline, or further participation will lead to more headache than enjoyment. Then I will see no further reason to continue roleplaying with that individual. Sorry, but I'm here to enjoy my time.   MINIMUM OF THREE-TEN LINE PARAGRAPHS (500 WORDS.)- Most people understand that colorful description can add a lot to roleplaying and character development. The flip-side of this, though, is that it can be oppressive and difficult to follow if roleplayers carry on with too much narration for too long. The exact amount each individual aims for can be different, but three is a popular number. So, if your one of those people who struggle, then shoot for the three. Nothing comes effortlessly without a little practice, hard work and dedication. Of course, it's acceptable, but six, ten line paragraphs is typically a good goal. This style is also known as "casual RP", among other names.  This type of roleplay is accessible to everyone. The reason for this is that it's easy to grasp and easy to start. However, script-style roleplays will rarely offer much character development or plot advancement. So, I'm not a enormous fan.   INAPPROPRIATE ROLEPLAY- Bad words, offensive terms may be used in character in an age inappropriate manner. I have no objections to a more rated R experience when using foul language and violence. However, sex is entirely different. I'm assuming we're mature enough to talk about this, so sexual conduct is to be excepted while roleplaying. I'm not saying sexual content isn't allowed, only that some sexual contact needs to be handled in an extra, more established mature way. There will be a point in everyone's storyline that will contain graphic conduct, if you can't handle mature content then kindly let the other player know beforehand.   MUTES- Simple, we talk, we roleplay, you stay. I don't keep mutes on my friends list.   PUNISHMENT- Noncompliance to follow these rules will result in immediate action from me. All first offense will deal with the consequence of having a private ooc counseling and/or warning, and/or banishment depending on which rule you broke. I don't do second chances, if I have to warn you a second time it will result in me hitting the block button on your page.   EXCEPTIONS- Role-play is about creativity and while these rules are not just needed they can at times during very deep and important role-play points be a bit constricting. That being said, like many things in life the rules of role-play are not the be-all and end-all. It takes skill and knowledge to know when one can bend one of the above rules to affect a role-play in a positive manner, this is usually done by small groups where the individuals that are involved know each other in both IC and OOC. They know exactly what they are getting into, many are most likely experienced writers and are okay with it. This takes a long time to understand and should only be attempted by advanced role-players. Nevertheless, always keep in mind that the purpose of role-playing online is to have fun.Please be creative when signing my rules! Thank you and lets have tons of fun!

As punishment she was bound in a ring of fire until her body reached the age of 21. Odin then decided that she was to be bound to the code of the Valkyrie and recruit new soldiers for his army. This revoked her goddess status, making it impossible for her to enter some places in Asgard such as her home in Idavoll. She discovered that the only way for the code to be broken is for a brave and great warrior to fall in love with her and vow to fight for Valhalla when Ragnarok happens. Once this event happens, her goddess status will be restored and she will be allowed to return home.

Dislikes: police, people trying to shut down her operation, people overly violent Family: Mikhail Lovett--Brother Story:Rose and Mikhail were raised in a home by the sea by two loving parents. The world was normal except for the new discovery of augmenting humans. It started with just health problems; a robotic heart, a mechanical liver, things to keep people alive mostly. The blind could now see, the deaf could hear, but soon enough weapons were developed. These were deemed illegal by the government and anyone with a weapon augment was to be killed. The police and a force known as Augmercs were allowed to have weapon modifications to control the public. It was soon discovered that once a certain percent of the human body was augmented that a person began to lose their sanity. This was 60%. The government put a limit of 50% in place to prevent this loss of sanity. Anyone over this limit was put to death. This meant that Rose and Mikhail's parents were put to death. Rose was devastated and began to develop a drug that suppressed this sort of cyber sickness that people developed. She named it Cybersil. Anyone over the limit of 50% retained not only their sanity but it allowed them to slip beneath the radars of the Augmercs. However anyone under this limit merely gained a high from the drug as one would from any other drug. It was soon deemed illegal, but this did not stop Mikhail and Rose from producing it in large quantities and becoming drug lords very quickly. From the day that their parents were killed, Mikhail vowed to protect his younger sister at all costs. He is her personal bodyguard and the only person she trusts.                                 Get your own valid XHTML YouTube embed code

She had 4 older sisters and 2 older brothers. Her family lived in the middle of the city Divincan. The city was located in the Caverna Candidus. Her family was part of the Candida Dryadales, whose powers and appearance was different than those of the other elven races.  They prospered in the city Divincan living in peace and harmony for many centuries, until disaster struck. A man named Thradth appeared and cast a curse on the Candida Dryadales. A disease they called Advena Dolor struck the city and spread like wildfire. It started as a slight throbbing pain anywhere on the body. It would move around and be in different location or everywhere all at once. Eventually the pain would worsen and when the headaches got bad enough the victim would start to see things and hallucinate. The pain would finally get so bad that the victim's body would shut down and the person would die. It took anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks for a person to die. No one that was diagnosed with this disease survived. Nisirath's family was hit hard, her siblings dying within a few days of each other and her father following close behind. Her mother seemed to be a fighter, surviving the illness for a few weeks. During this time she told Nisirath of a book that would teach her everything she ever needed to know about their history, culture and abilities. Nisirath was told to find this book if she somehow survived. A few days before the New Year, her mother died. After this Nisi left the city to try to escape the disease, since almost everyone was dead or ill now. She had to find the book her mother told her about. The book of Moriccutum was said to hold all the secrets of the elven races, but Nisirath had no idea where to start. The city maybe? But it was ridden with disease and she was already suffering from headaches. But against her better judgment, she returned to the city only to find it scattered with the victims of the Advena Dolor and deserted. It seemed to her that she was the only one that survived the epidemic, but she had faith that maybe if she found the book she would be able to find others and maybe bring their race back from almost extinction.  She searched the city day and night for months with no luck. She hadn't seen another living being in almost a year and the city was being to decay. It was no longer the city she had grown up in and loved, it was now in ruins. She vowed to find the book, to kill Thradth, and to save her people. How she was going to do was still yet to be discovered.   *****Speaks an elvish language of my own design.******                                     Get your own valid XHTML YouTube embed code
