Blind River Discussion Thread


This storybook has no set plot. You merely have characters. Wherever your character has come from, it matters not. They can come from the future, the past, a mythical realm, the end of time. It’s your character.

Please post characters here and ask any, I cannot stress that enough,
any questions you feel you need to ask.


---

Example of a character profile (not real):

Name: Azrael Linx
Gender: Male
Personality: Charming and mischievous.
Weight (kg): 75
Height (cm): 175
Appearance: Brunette with blue eyes.

Choice of attire:

6 - Tunic Armour
Speed - 6
Defense - 3
Mana Absorb – 3
Weight – 15kg

Choice of weapon:

8 - Rapier
Speed - 2
Attack - 2
Mana Bonus - 8
Weight – 12.5kg

Choice of potions:

9 – Change Attire Potion (CAP)

Just a heads up:

Any attack from your weapon is added to your Attack attribute, same with speed for both attire and weapon and defense only for the attire.

Mana absorb is added to your mana and mana boost is only added to your Attack attribute when you are using magic.

Also, only base attributes are considered when changing other details, as seen below in the Health, Mana and Stamina section.

Attributes:

Speed – 6 + 6 (attire) + 2 (weapon) = 14
Attack – 6 + 2 (weapon) = 8
Defense - 5 + 3 (attire) = 8
Mana – 6 + 3 (attire) = 9
Physical Skill – 6
Accuracy – 5
Charisma – 7
Health – 5

Health: 300/300
Mana: 302 (from attribute)/302
Stamina: 320 (from attributes)/320
Gold: 100g

Capacity (Height/Weight)*: 2 to 3 = 85 + 2 (from attributes) = 27.5kg/87kg

---

At Level 3, and up until you get to a specific level, all your attacks take away the same amount of stamina as your attack power*7 is equal to.

Thus, if I were to attack with my example character, Azrael Linx, after one attack my stamina would come down from 302/302 to 246/302.

If you do get magic spells, mana will act much the same.

---

To get to Level 4, you need 100 experience points or XP. To get to Level 5, you will need 150 and so on so forth.

---

I have included a template so that if you wish for the bolds, underlines and colours as seen in my example character's profile, you may have it.

---

If you have any immediate question, try looking in the Chat. Sometimes I'm there, sometimes I'm not. Talk to me in Chat Room A, if I am there.

:idea: Lightbulb! I get it! I am joining!

Name: Elira Aalkin
Gender: Female
Personality: As an Elvish full-blood, she is a trained fighter with weapons and magic, is gifted with very keen senses, fun to be around because of her Elven class and charm, is quite quick and agile, and can think well under pressure. She is quiet towards those she has not befriended but is kind-hearted, caring and loyal to her companions and those she trusts. Elira mostly only reacts when necessary, has but when something makes her mad or upset and her heart's really in it, she is difficult to tame.
Weight: 65 kg (mostly muscle)
Height: 172 cm
Appearance: Elira Aalkin, being Elvish, looks young and gorgeous, tall and slim for running and fighting, and very muscular. She has the iconic pointed ears and slightly high cheekbones of her ancestors, along with the full lips, long braided blond hair, the beautiful light blue eyes, and long legs built to run and a great smile.
She makes the guys want to fall in love (not on purpose, of course), the animals do what she wants, and the girls befriend her. Elira honestly doesn't particularly like this trait, but has learned to live with it for the past three hundred years.

Enchanted armor... Crafted by the Elves themselves: (Ha! It rhymes!)
Speed- 3
Defense- 6
Mana absorb- 3
Weight- 25 kg

Elvish Silverwood bow: (Made especially to fit Elira)
Speed- 5

Health boost potion

Speed- 6+3+5= 13
Attack- 6+5= 11
Defense- 6+6= 12
Mana- 6+3+2= 11
Physical Skill- 5
Accuracy- 6
Charisma- 6
Health- (has potion) 5
Health: 300/300
Mana: 302/302
Stamina: 330/330
Gold: 100g
Capacity: 31/88 kg


I hope I did this right, and if not just tell me! :D

It’s come to my attention that the character profiles might be tad complicated. Thus, I’ve decided to write a tutorial.

TUTORIAL

Spoiler! :
First of all, open up Blind River (the actual SB).

Now, scroll all the way to the bottom.

Open the spoiler underneath the word “Template”.

Copy all the text in that spoiler by selecting the word “Select All” and then pressing either “Copy” after right clicking or pressing Ctrl+C.

Once you have done this, please go to the DT.

Now, press the full reply button. Once there, paste the text. You can either right click and press “Paste” or use Ctrl+V.

Now, the easy part: figuring out what your character is going to be like. Feel free to add a history, if you wish. I will be using my example character to help.

Name: Azrael Linx
Gender: Male
Personality: Charming and mischievous.
Weight (kg): 75
Height (cm): 175
Appearance: Brunette with blue eyes.

Attire, weapons and potions seem to be fine as well. Choose what you wish. These were mine:

Choice of attire:

6 - Tunic Armour
Speed - 6
Defense - 3
Mana Absorb – 3
Weight – 15kg

Choice of weapon:

8 - Rapier
Speed - 2
Attack - 2
Mana Bonus - 8
Weight – 12.5kg

Choice of potions:

9 – Change Attire Potion (CAP)


The attributes appear to be where everyone starts getting more and more confused. You are allowed to spend 6 points on the attributes. As seen in my example I’ve already spent the points, but I’ll break it down for simplicity. This is what they look like when you’re done:

Attributes:

Speed – 6 + 6 (attire) + 2 (weapon) = 14
Attack – 6 + 2 (weapon) = 8
Defense - 5 + 3 (attire) = 8
Mana – 6 + 3 (attire) = 9
Physical Skill – 6
Accuracy – 5
Charisma – 7
Health – 5


Onto the first step, I’ll start with a blank canvas.

Attributes:

Speed – 5
Attack – 5
Defense – 5
Mana – 5
Physical Skill – 5
Accuracy – 5
Charisma – 5
Health – 5

Now, I would like my character to be charming, a little bit faster, a little bit of knack with the locks and with attack and magic. Thus, my choices affect that:

Attributes:

Speed – 5 + 1
Attack – 5 + 1
Defense - 5
Mana – 5 + 1
Physical Skill – 5 + 1
Accuracy – 5
Charisma – 5 + 2
Health – 5

Notice how the accumulation of these points is equal to 6 (1 [Speed] + 1 [Attack] + 1 [Mana] + 1 [Physical Skill] + 2 [Charisma])

Now, my base attributes will look a little more like the end attributes:

Attributes:

Speed – 6
Attack – 6
Defense - 5
Mana – 6
Physical Skill – 6
Accuracy – 5
Charisma – 7
Health – 5


(Remember some points you spend will affect your Health, Stamina, Mana and Capacity.)

Onto the addition of attire and weapons. My example weapons and attire look like this:

Choice of attire:

6 - Tunic Armour
Speed - 6
Defense - 3
Mana Absorb – 3
Weight – 15kg

Choice of weapon:

8 - Rapier
Speed - 2
Attack - 2
Mana Bonus - 8
Weight – 12.5kg


Notice the Speed, Attack, Defense and Mana, which attributes and weapon/attires have in common. Now, there is a discrepancy between Mana Bonus and Mana Absorb. Mana Absorb is added to your Mana and Mana Bonus is only added to your Attack attribute when you are using magic. Adding together the common details, your attributes should look something along the lines of this (which is your end product):

Attributes:

Speed – 6 + 6 (attire) + 2 (weapon) = 14
Attack – 6 + 2 (weapon) = 8
Defense - 5 + 3 (attire) = 8
Mana – 6 + 3 (attire) = 9
Physical Skill – 6
Accuracy – 5
Charisma – 7
Health – 5


Now, that’s done, the next part is also quite complicated. This is what the last bit of your details should look like, without changing it as affected by your attributes:

Health: 300/300
Mana: 300/300
Stamina: 300/300
Gold: 100g

Capacity (Height/Weight)*: (Any)

I’ll go through it step by step.

Health: 300/300


Have you added any attribute points to Health? If you have then for each point you have added, add 10 points onto your Health. For example, if you have spent 2 points, you would add 20 to Health, making it look like this: 320/320.

As I have spent nothing in my Health, mine will remain the same: Health: 300/300

Mana: 300/300

Have you added any attribute points to Mana? If you have then for each point you have added, add 2 to the power of the number of points you have spent onto your Mana. For example, if you have spent 2 points, you would add 2^2 to Mana, making it look like this: 304/304.

As I have spent 1 point on my Mana, mine will go up by 2 (2^1=2): Mana: 302 (from attribute)/302

Stamina: 300/300


Have you added any attribute points to Speed, Attack or Defense? If you have then for each point you have added, add 10 onto your Stamina. For example, if you have spent 3 points, each separately in each Speed, Attack and Defense, you would add 30 to Stamina, making it look like this: 330/330.

As I have spent 1 point in Speed and 1 point in Attack, my Stamina will go up by 20: Stamina: 320 (from attributes)/320

Gold: 100g


You cannot change anything about your gold. As seen by how mine is the same: Gold: 100g

Capacity (Height/Weight)*: (Any)


Scroll back up to your character’s information. Get the height and divide it by the weight. Your answer should fall into any of the ranges provided in the initial information. That gives you your Capacity.

However, have you added any attribute points to Speed, Attack or Defense? If you have then for each point you have added, add 1kg onto your Capacity. For example, if you have spent 3 points, each separately in each Speed, Attack and Defense, you would add 3 to Capacity, making it look like this: Any + 3kg.

As I have two points, one in Speed and the other in Attack, mine will look like this: Capacity (Height/Weight)*: 2 to 3 = 85kg + 2kg (from attributes) = 87kg

Onto the last part, how much you’re currently holding. Add together the weight of your attire and the weight of your weapon.

15kg (attire) + 12.5kg (weapon) = 27.5kg

Therefore, mine will look like this: Capacity: 27.5kg/87kg

And that is the end of the tutorial. I hope this helps.

Also, Griffin, yours is nearly perfect! :D

Name: Declan Runestone
Gender: Male
Personality: A bit more on the mysterious side, since his overall personality is calm but quiet. However, there are some sides of him that he tries to control. Mostly he has a hard time trying to keep his vile temper under control, since it clouds his judgment more than it gives him strength. He also has a sensitive side that he tries not show. Believe it or not, he's very like a gentleman when he's in a crowd of women.
Height: 180cm
Weight: 90kg
Appearance: In the beginning, he's hiding under a long black hooded cloak with a crimson dragon clip where the neck is. Underneath the cloak, he's moonlight-pale with sapphire eyes and dark chocolate brown hair. There's a scar on his right cheek that looks like a cross, which is a mystery to anyone who ever saw him without his hood on his head.
Choice of attire: Dragon Armour
Speed - 1
Defense - 10
Mana Absorb – 1
Weight – 45kg
Weapon of choice: Throwing Daggers
Speed - 8
Attack - 2
Mana Bonus - 2
Weight – 5kg
Potion of choice: Speed Boost Potion (SBP)
Attribute: Attack
Speed – 5 +8+1= 14
Attack – 5 +2+3(AP)= 10
Defense - 5 +10+1(AP) = 16
Mana – 5 +1+2= 8
Physical Skill – 5+2(AP)= 7
Accuracy – 5
Charisma – 5
Health: 300/300
Mana: 308/308
Stamina: 340/340
Capacity: 50kg/79kg

That's as good as I can get in correction.

I'm going to have to put a time-limit on this, Redfang.

I really want to get this started.

So, please have your character profile corrected by Monday, or please retract your character.

Thank you.

Also, please find below, an attribute table. The skills only go up in threes, however, you have to work out your stamina, mana, health and capacity increase from the points you spend.

Actually, you know, blow my last comment about the time-limit off. Redfang, if you still want to be in this SB, please correct your character and I'll PM you about when to run into the main party again.

Anyone still wanting to join is allowed to, but will only be allowed to come into the story at specific times which I will PM you.

For everyone else already done, I'm starting the SB. :3

So, once your characters get over your initial shock, Alick is going to ask you what your classes and fighting styles are. Depending on how you react, you might or might not get some free stuff or you might not. Besides, you have 100g to spend.

Here is information on them:
