<cracks knuckles> <grins>

ok - your height needs to be in "peds"

3 feet = approx 1 ped = 1 meter + a little bit <looks at Bahran> :\  right? - Maths *isnt* my strong point, but I'm trying!

Combine all your additions to your character in to the top post. There is an "edit" link at the top left hand side of your *post* not the *screen* but your post... Copy and paste your extra's in to there, and make any alterations in there. It makes it easier to read rather than having to read through the entire description, and then have an "oh yeah and this" post.

You say that he's a traveling wizard, but doesn't know much magic. The magic that he does know, is it "party tricks" which, by entertaining for money he survives? It's a little unclear.

As is your history, if you could elaberate (expand - go in to more detail) with the history since you've got 73 years to fill there should be a little more there. Did he ever fall in love, any children, when he left his teachings, how he came to where he is now, what's hurt his back - or is that just old age.

These *little* things will improve your character adding that special "touch" to it! ;)  Glad to see that your not a young beautiful character with no personality! :lol

I'm here for the magic.

1.)You mention he's pretty good at healing and Peace magic. There is no healing magic.

2.)Too much magic. You say he's weak in all fields. Even if you have like 2 weak spells in each field that's over 30 spells. Please, just pick 3 or 4 fields. If you want to be good at just one, take one and work towards mastery.

Oh! Your Pic, Landor. If you send it to Uragel's email, the Santharian site can hold it for you, so you can see it.

I've read your work here. It looks good now. If you could run the Long one through the Spell Check, I'll be happy. Also, most humans do not believe in anyone else but Ava, that's what I've always thought. Was there a way he was intoduced to the other gods?

Other than these, good deal. I'll see what I can do about a title.

Viresse, you got it completely backwards. Most humans have no idea Ava exists, a vague idea of Coor as chaos that spawned the world, and worship the other twelve.

right. Looks like this little Jhellerhim fool needs to Study some MORE.

This area is desert... There arn't any "woods" only "sand" :\  

Tarq mentioned that you need to "narrow" down your field of magic. So I'd suggest going in to more detail....  I think that you are confusing Cleric with Wizardly magic.... Do you want him to be a "healer" or a "wizard" with herb lore?

It's doubtful if one could learn Necromancy or Demonology to any use. Demonology takes difficult summoning rites and such, to bring the demons out. It isn't just saying a word and making a demon appear. And with Necromancy it takes... well, dead bodies, ingredients, and such as that.

Nice interesting character. You should run it through a spell check, and take a look at your wording in places.

You can't edit the first one because:
1.)You didn't have an EZboard account when it was posted
2.)You weren't logged in when it was posted.
The name isn't underlined and isn't a hyperlink to the profile, so that means it's just a guest thing.
