  1. And that children, is how the azure dragoon got a yeast infection. *ba-dum-psh*
  2. Oh for the love of...I will try to delete the double post when I get home. But on another note: WEAKNESSES. Do NOT make yourself immortal unless you have some serious weaknesses to go with it. Like..I can trap you in a butterfly net level weakness.
  3. Is this a troll thread? Entirely possible. However that doesn't negate the fact that a question was asked and that question might be shared by others. RPers can be an introverted lot so I would not be surprised if lurkers outnumber the outspoken. For those who might be reading this thread in hopes of an answer I will TRY to give you the best one that makes sense to, at least, me personally. Let's be real for a moment here: there's a pretty big stigma on vampires thanks to twilight and a number of other twists on the vampire dogma. So you have that stacked against you /including/ the si
  4. Alright, back on topic people! I'm really enjoying the discussion but lets keep it that way okay? Just a discussion on rping a 'villain' character. That's it. No more no less. Here's something to get folks back on tract: NPC's. I notice a lot of people who play criminal characters have a LOT of NPC's. On one had it makes sense, can't run a criminal empire without minions. On the other hand though when is it /too/ much? I knew one person who had a whole criminal enterprise that theyloved to lord around. However not one member of this group was an actual PC. So where do you draw the line?
  5. TWelp, his 'criminal cover' is that he's an Ishgardian who was exiled from his house after being caught helping a number of heretics escape Ishgard. One was captured and turned him in so now he's gota grudge a mile wide and hopes to find the specific heretics that lead to his discovery as a heretic sympathizer. He hopes doing so will get him pardoned and if not...well at least the bastards will burn with him. Above that is his Civillian cover. He's a civilian coroner for the Maelsrtom and is based in Limsa. Generally his job is to investigate suspicious deaths. He also helps hunt down a
  6. *points above* that about sums it up. Though I haven't run into the issue of someone having too many powerful friends (though that is something to consider) I have been told upfront that no, my character can't really do anything. Which is fine, really. My character might be an ass but I'm not. It's kind of rude to kill off someone's character but again, as said, rock and hard place. How do bounty hunters get around this? I see a lot of people rping that.
  7. Hmmmm....considering all this I might make an alt. One who is more the 'bad guy just doing his job' while the other is all about that mustache. Its something to consider. Honestly I'm just enjoying the conversation ^^. Its interesting to read the viewpoints.
  8. Hi! I have a relatively new character I'd like to find some connections for! On the surface he has a normal, every day job. However, he also belongs to a rouge militia group called the Faces of Mercy. They are a lore based organization that can be read about in 1.0 quests. My character specializes as a 'cleaner.' He hides bodies, makes murders look like accidents, and gathers and provides information. In return he asks for intelligence on heretics in Eorzea and help bringing them back to Ishgard. And if you can't do that then coin works too. In short: He's a spy for Ishgard w
  9. First I would like to thank everyone for their posts. Truly, it means a lot that the community has come together and offered help on the subject. It all certainly has given me some food for thought. The consensus I seem to be getting is: A) Don't be so obviously evil that your mustache twirls itself B) Don't throw it around that your character is on the darker side of things C) Be careful who you rp that aspect of your character with. There were a lot of other good points but these three seem to be the most agreed upon. That being said, If I can't twirl my mustache, talk a
  10. Do you mean 'types' of summoners? There really isn't a 'type'. There's just one school of thought for summoning. We simply aren't entirely sure if it's an Ascian art or Allagan. What we DO know is that the art itself requires you to have defeated a primal or been in the presence of one's defeat. After that you use the residual aether from the primal in a ritual to summon an egi. Defeat the egi and you can summon one from then on. Some primals produce egis that are simply too strong for some people to summon. That's why summoning a Ramu egi doesn't work. (I demand we try with a mog egi).
  11. I would also like an invite if that's alright ^^
  12. This is a discussion my friends and I have often. Because I'm still avoiding productivity, I figured I'd try bringing it here. How hard is it for rpers to rp 'bad guys?' I see a lot of Robin Hoods but very, very few 'true' criminal characters. At first I couldn't figure out why until a friend tried rping one. People do NOT like their characters being tricked. I didn't realize how much till a friend of my tried rping a 'villain' character. Even though Icly no one had any reason to be wary of him, oocly they saw that he was a criminal via his character tag. You could see the ch
  13. I'll throw my two cents here since I have another hour before my next class and refuse to be productive. I always ask myself these questions: Can someone (Who is not an NPC but an actual character played by another person) kick your character's butt on a regular basis? Yes? Then you're good. Can someone kick your butt through skill alone, not by using some odd weakness? For example a lot of people make the mistake of saying 'my blind character's one weakness is his blindness.' Nope. Got to have something else. A handicap is not an excuse to remove all other weaknesses from your
  14. She could definitely have an accent. I'm from Canada but spent most of my life in America. However my parents are Canadian and because of that I carry their accent with me. I still say 'eh' and hold my 'o's' because my parents did. My accent isn't as strong as theirs but other Canadians always seem to pick it up. There are also cultural slips you can sneak in. Every area has a different way of talking. For example you'll find that Canadians use a LOT more sarcasm than Americans. Brits also have this really dry kind of humor. Americans, meanwhile, I find are a lot more bold in their word
  15. I don't personally rp an Au-Ra but a lot of my friends do. Honestly, the bulk of them treat the dark scaled ones like miqo'te - as in tribal and somewhat feral. Considering that there is lore stating that a clan of dark scaled Au-Ra were killed by some Ishgardian knights you could easily say your character is seeking revenge. Or maybe they want to team up with the Little Ala Mhigans to help take down Garlamald and learn the ways of the monk. There's a lot of places you could go with it but it's all for not if you don't have the right people to rp with. Look around, try to meet some new f
