- THE CD FORUM POSTICON SYSTEM -

Below is a summary on the posticons used for the character description approval process. The posticon of the first post should always be edited according to the current state of completion of the character description (either by the player, a Moderator or an Administrator).
1) PLAYER - CD is incomplete. Use this posticon if you have not finished your CD.  4) MODERATOR - CD has been approved by one moderator. A second mod's approval is needed.
 2) PLAYER - CD is completed. Use this if you have finished working on your CD.  5) MODERATOR - CD has been approved by two moderators. An Administrator should soon take care of the titling.
 3) MODERATOR - An expert's opinion is needed. The specific field in which the expert's help is needed should be added to the title.  6) ADMINISTRATOR - An administrator has titled the character, and the thread will soon be moved to the CD Archives.

I miss the dark elf concept...

Oh well. Revisions are fine by me. As always, who am I to find issues with your magic section, dear Dru?

First re-approval! Nod

And if Azhira has no problem with your magic section, I'm happy enough with that as well. I read through the rest of it, and didn't see anything that can stop me giving you a second re-approval!

Wow, that was faster and with less complications than I thought.

:P


Thanks!

Minor Quibble that has nothing to do with your CD, just my own personal pet peeves with CDs I'll be reading from time to time.  Your signature.  Did you know.... that if you go to to your first post (the actual CD) and click on the title, you can then C&P the HTTP address into your Signature.  This way the link will lead to that post rather than to the end of the thread where you still need to go rooting through the different pages to find it.

Feel free to completely ignore me... has nothing to do with your wonderful CD.  Tis only me being lazy in the knowledge that I shall need to reference this CD often in the next few months. :P

I blame you! You're the one that made me decide to add a new weakness. ;)

Thanks for bringing it up. :)

Done with updates.

Most significant changes were an addition of more history and a revamping of dates (pushing the Ximax training back and then detailing out the 200 years between then and now), and an alteration of her strengths/weaknesses.

As a result of some talks with Altario, I have added a very major weakness, Mage Grabber Disease. This essentially limits her most powerful strength quite severely, so I also bumped her level back up to 8. Despite being level 8, however, she can pretty much not cast Sphere 3 spells, I chose to make her level 8 due to show A) the amount of time she has had to train and it shows she was once very powerful, and B) so that she can have excellent theoretical knowledge even if she can't actually use those spells anymore. Even her Sphere 1 and 2 spells are more difficult to cast. This also has the effect of making her very wary on casting any magic at all.

As a result, I have added the addition of her being good at archery. I had taken this out before due to her high level, but now that her magic strength has essentially been cut in half or more, I figured it would be balanced to add it, considering her long age and other weaknesses.


Oh, and I also added even more pictures. <.< Mostly 3D art renders this time.

Longest. Entry. Ever.  Shocked

I was reading the history and was totally engrossed in the various ups and downs of Drustai. I often simply skim CD history (shocking!) but I like Dru. She has to be the most widely traveled character I've ever seen.

Quote
Drustai, on the other hand, had stayed with Azthudan, part of a renegade network of underground wizards who practiced arts forbidden by Ximax. Expelled students, rogue cults, insiders, and so on. Few gave their names, aside from nicknames and monikers.

This network of magi just screams Everbright Cult.  evil The cult has their fair share of necromancers...strictly secret, of course, but not all of them. I would say some Ximaxian administrators are cult members, too. They all participate in covering it up. Someday I'll get that entry written.

Quote
During these years, Drustai traveled to many far-flung locations on the Sarvonian continent, including the dark spires of Thalambath and the cold streets of Remusiat. In Thalambath, she learned what little she can of Thalambathian Arcanistry, and purchases a Thalambathian Scroll Tome while there, but being a foreigner, woman, and elf barred her from receiving any true knowledge. Indeed, she faced rather severe persecution while in the city.

At Remusia, Drustai was seeking information on the ancient Dark Chosen, Alteth. Though she found much in the way of Remusian lore and myth, she was not able to locate what she really wanted—an avatar, a beacon of the Chosen’s powers, knowledge of his spells, or anything else that she could use. Like her studies of Krean Magic, however, there was nothing for her to find.

I'm disappointed Dru never thought to visit Osthemangar. The ancient orcen and dark elven ruins scattered about there would surely hold many arcane secrets waiting to be rediscovered. Mostly temples to Coor for the elves. The orcs slew their gods, according to myth, so their ruins would likely hold ancient nature type magic (not druid).

Anyway, it's about time you weaken ol' Drustai. Mage Grabber...ouch. You couldn't have chosen a worse weakness, I must say. Unless you take Mist taint into account. That will mess you up and drive you to talk to inanimate objects like your staff. And make you think(?) you are possessed by a demon. Loony!  :P

I now bestow my second first re-approval!

Haha, yeah, I was giddy when I saw I had crossed over into two-page CD land.

And thanks. Older elven characters really have tons of history you have to account for. Even with all of this, I still mostly just summarized a good 100-150 years worth of it.

It could have been. Though she would have avoided the orcs. She hates them. :P

Who says she didn't? ;)

As I said, I summarized that section. There's a chance she visited Osthemangar, and I might write something about it eventually. Possibly before this goes down to the archives again. :)

Heh. Yeah. I basically told Alt that I was a bit worried about Dru's strength in Destiny. He suggested finding a way to semi-permanently limit her powers. So I figured adding Mage Grabber, which also finally gives her a real reason why she's helping Denrykmar/Altario (I couldn't really think of one prior to that) would fix that. Plus, it's a major character development piece.

Thanks for the re-approval. :)

Added mention of the Everbright Cult.

I started doing an Osthemangar section but decided against it. I'll leave that as a future destination she might attempt immediately after Destiny.

The Everbright Cult is mostly humans and Volkek-Oshra. Very few elves are members, or even associated with them. The reverence of Anilya contradicts the elven reverence of Foiros. Clearly, the cult has many enemies among the religious body. Clerics of the fire deities especially hate Anilya's memory. However, the cult does have half-elves and even half-orcs, too. As for Anilya, it is not known what race she was. Most agree she was human/orc, but that is only a compromise agreement made long ago so neither humans nor orcs could claim her one of their own exclusively. The cult has practicing necromancers and demonologists as members (My Malexia, Dek's Phlegah and my dev side researcher Vekarn being a few of them). Although most members are fire magi, a few are members of other elemental schools like water. The general dogma is the practice of magic in destructive, powerful or manipulating ways.

Okay. I expanded and fleshed out the mention a bit. You can now count Dru in that list of members. :)

Sorry to butt in here but I just wanted to say that though I haven't seen many CD's, I can honestly say this is easily the best and most interesting CD I have ever seen and will probably be for a long time. Just incredible!

Btw, where'd you get those amazing renders from?
