Seriously Revan this is getting worrying. Its been like 2 months if not more since the last update
Its only been a month which is what ARTGAC was before i updated it. My original plan was to get it done today but CoB has taken me all day to get done due to interuptions and now that is currently at 9 pages long even though i meant for it to be a normal update >.<

Ill have CoB done tonight then im going to work on AoD tomorrow and I will make sure I have it done by 11-11:30pm which gives me 6 and abit hours from when i get home to get it done and then after that ill have AoTA done by the end of the week.

Think you will be ok with that Santaire? Ill use CoB update to distract you while i do AoD.

Hey guys, looks like I'm joining :tongue:


Name: Endras Amlugon
Race: Wood Elf of Ela’Amnor
Gender: Male
Age: 127

Physical Appearance: Endras would be tall for a human, but amongst the elven races he is relatively average at 7 foot, with the fair skin of his race. His hair is a deep, chocolate-brown colour which reaches past his shoulders. His eyes are amber and deeply intelligent, whilst his mouth is usually upturned slightly in a smile, equally at his comrades and with them. He is very lithe, but that belies the wiry strength that lies beneath.

Personality: Endras can be very solitary when he doesn’t know a group well, but when he’s regularly around people, he can open up to them. He may argue with people, or create contention between the group, but will usually stop before it comes to blows. If he takes a disliking to someone, then he will stick to it, and it could be years before his opinion of them changes, whilst if he becomes particularly close to someone he will back them up as much as he can, despite the odds. The only time he will not intervene in an argument and take up sides is when it is two friends; then, Endras will attempt to be the negotiator and end the disagreements. When it comes to a battle or skirmish, the Elf is very focussed and puts differences behind him. He tends to think of himself as a fair person, despite his tendency to form opinions quickly and is too stubborn to change them. A prime example of this is that, despite having forgiven dragons as a whole thanks to his connection with Jadeus, he would still dearly love to take his retribution against the dragon who destroyed his home and killed his parents and two of his siblings. He would deny it, some of that anger completes him and he subconsciously knows that he would feel less capable, without it driving him to become better and more skilled. He pursues anything he really wants with a single-minded determination that pushes other things into the shadows until he has completed it.
Endras, despite a long-seated hate of dragons, now cannot imagine life without Jadeus and will happily injure or take the life of any who threatens the life of his now-constant companion.

Background and How you met Modeus: Endras was born into one of the now-destroyed cities of the Wood Elves, and grew up as a normal elven child. He often trained with his father’s weapons from the age of ten, and soon proved he was a rather exceptional bow-men, but he was always less skilled with melee weapons, capable but the lesser fighter in his many training bouts.

When his home city was destroyed by one of the Green Dragons, Endras and his youngest brother were in one of the other cities, in the home of some extended family. Both brothers were distraught upon hearing the news of the cities destruction, but whilst Endras’ brother lost his mind with grief, he worked through his grief and poured all his passion, his anger and grief into his new life-path - that of the Ranger. He spent years wandering the forgotten pathways and the changeable animal tracks, hunting down dangerous animals and perfecting his archery. For years at a time he would wander between settlements, alone with the beasts of the forests, only coming into the major cities for the most elusive of supplies and for the latest news.

A seething anger against dragons had raged inside Endras during all this time, and when he heard rumour of the location of a Green Dragon, the ranger immediately joined a group, made up of warriors, rangers, druids and mages who were determined to remove this particular threat. It took weeks for them to finally arrive at the cave which the dragon used as a lair, and they cautiously made their way inside, arrows knocked and swords drawn. Endras found the dragon’s nest inside the cave, and the scene shocked him; two eggs, one still as stone and the other cracked and split, the wyrmling already gone. Eyes hardening, the ranger scoured the rest of the cave until he found it, sword already in his hand. The creature, just over two feet long, stared back at him for thirty seconds, head cocked. A feeling, almost of empathy, seemed to radiate from it as if it could read Endras’ anger and resentment, before it bared it’s teeth and launched itself at him. The elf barely managed to get his dagger in position and use his hand to force it’s jaws away from his neck before it died. He didn’t, however, feel the vengeance he thought he would have after killing it, instead feeling slightly sick. He carried the body back to the others, who were arguing over the fate of the remaining egg - destroy it, or take it to the Riders. Many of the elves had joined the hunt for the Dragon due to a need for vengeance and were determined it would be destroyed, and only three others stood with Endras. In the end, the discussion was cut short when the mother returned, and Endras stole away with the egg and two other elves, determined that it should be used to help the lands of Em’Ralden. He sometimes still hears the cries of the mother in his dreams. He never found out the fate of those he left to fight the dragon, he only heard the faintest clashes of battle before even they disappeared into the distance. He split up from the other two, retaining the egg, and made for the home of the riders.

He travelled for weeks, all the time taking exquisite care of the egg and moving in absolute secrecy, staying nowhere for more than half a day. By the time he arrived at High Dragon Hold, the egg was close to hatching, moving ever so slightly in the bag he had so carefully placed it. Having presented his ‘prize’ to Modeus, the First Rider, Endras had determined he would return to his home-land and continue in his role as Ranger, leaving his days of anger and an unsated lust for vengeance behind him. However, Modeus spoke with him, and it was decided he would wait to leave until the dragon was hatched. And when it did, he felt an instant connection, like the feeling of empathy he had with it’s sibling, but so much more profound. Since then, he has resided at High Dragon Hold, with Jadeus, although he does miss the forests of his birth-lands.

Class: Ranger

Equipment: Endras carries a longbow, his main weapon, and a quiver full of long, footed arrows, made of cedar and oak wood. As well as this, he wields a straight-bladed short-sword and dagger in case it’s truly necessary, and he wears leather armour over a fine chainmail shirt, and over all of this he wears a cloak. All of his armour and clothes are in shades of muted greens and browns, the better to blend in with the woodland nature of Ela’Amnor. When he leaves High Dragon Hold, Endras takes supplies with him, reminiscent of his days as a Ranger, such as food and other essential provisions.

Dragon Name: Jadeus (pronounced Ha-de-us)
Dragon Gender: Male
Dragon Colour: Green

Name: Gribeard Shattersheild (No-one knows his birth name so he has everyone call him by this name)

Race: Mountain Dwarf

Gender: Male

Age: 85

Physical Appearance: Grimbeard is stocky and has his rifle normally strapped onto his back. He also has long ginger hair with a long ginger beard which goes down to his waist. His cloak is purple with a chainmail put over it. His helmet is silver with a gold stripe going through the center. His belt is covered in pouches filled with gunpowder and bullets. His eyes are brown and his skin is quite fair.

Personality: Grimbeard is jolly and a good friend especially with a pint. However he hates people commenting about his sise and he will become aggresive and will take a lot of time (and drink) to calm him back down. He takes great pride in his beard and it is kept clean and groomed to perfection.

Background and How you met Modeus: Grimbeard was born in the mountains of Kel'Karadorn amongst his fellow dwarfs. Growing up his father was always proud of his beard and told his son oftenly about how his father and his father before him where always well known of their magnificent beards so growing up Grimbeard was always reminded of it's importance. Another great hobby of his fathers was shooting. The sound of the gunpowder igniting and the vibrations of the kickback was a thrill in his fathers eyes.

So when he was finally strong enough to pick up a rifle his father began tutoring him in the ways of the firearm. How to:Arm,aim and fire the weapon and over the years Grimbeards expertese with the firearm was becoming quite well known amoung the lands around the mountains. One day a group of bandits assaultedtheir small village located just outside the main mountains and although the bandits lost many men they did manage to get off with one of Grimbeard's family treasure. Seeking to reclaim what was his he packed up his rifle and pistols and began to search for the treasure

It took a year to track those bandits down. They hid their tracks very well and took a lot of 'convincing' people to give up their information about the group. He finally got a lead when he heard that the bandit group had enough members and where planning to steal from a place known as high dragon hold and with that information Grimbeard made his way their. By the time he got their the bandit raid was in full swing with the sounds of men shouting out orders and them trying to get inside. Then all of a sudden a winged beast flew down from the sky breathing fire and burning many bandits in it's wake. On the back rid a man. A dark elf by the looks of things. Seeing that he would get none of his treasure as all of the bandits would be dead.

Ashamed Grimbeard could not go home. He made a promise to his parents that he would not return without the Gold they had stolen and so decided to make it up by earning the gold himself. However Grimbeard could not do most jobs very well and was fired from most of them. So he decided to explore the nearby mountains for something worth selling. Here he felt at home. He spotted the ocassional ore vein but other than that their wasn't much worth any thing.

One day he was exploring a cave when he found a Gold stone on the ground. It was shapped like an egg but weighed too much and it's colour obviously meant that the thing was worth a lot. He picked it up and polished the surface. It didn't do anything but make it a bit warmer. Then all of a sudden a black object lashed out at him and he was flung into a wall. Panicking he grabbed the Stone and ran towards the mouth of the cave knowing some creature was behind him wanting to kill him.

Bursting outside the sunlight offering a tiny bit of refuge he turned to see whatever was after him. The beast came forward with scales of gold and a size that would dwarf a gaint. The thing snarled and breathed fire towards Grimbeard. He dived out of the way skidding across the bumby ground barly managing to keep hold of the stone. Grimbeard suddenly realised that it was a dragon. Dragons according to popular legend around his village always kept a stack of treasures one of which Grimbeard realised he was holding. Pulling out his rifle Grimbeard aimed down the sights. The dragon turned towards him and Grimbeard pulled the trigger. The bullet whized through the air and landed into the dragons left eye turning it into a gooey mess. Writhing around in pain Grimbeard took the chance and ran with the treasure hoping to sell it in a nearby village.

Selling the rock was not as easy as he thought people offered too low for it and said 'this isn't even real' Stroking his beard he brought up a mug of ale and sipped it slightly. Apparently someone he met knew someone who would have it and at this time Grimbeard was desperate. The door opened and Grimbeard turned his head slightly towards the newcomer. Seeing him Grimbeards eyes went wide and he struggled to not gasp as the person who had came through the door was the dark elf he saw all those months ago flying the dragon burning the bandits. Shocked as the Dark elf asked a question at the bar and the bartender pointed towards Grimbeard. Cursing at his luck Grimbeard watched out of the corner of his eye as the drak elf approached him.

He sat down opposite Grimbeard and for a couple of moments their was an awkward silence. Clearing his throught Grimbeard asked "What do you want?" Trying to keep the tinge of fear out of his voice. The dark elf smiled and leant forward. "Someone told me that you had something that might intrest me." Gulping Grimbeard pulled out the egg shaped ornament. "This is it." Grimbeard said hand shaking slightly as he placed it down on he table. The dark elf picked it up and looked at it turning it ever so carfully. The dark elf put it down and asked "How did you aquire it?" Breathing deeply Grimbeard explained the whole story of how he got the stone that was before them. Smiling the dark elf asked "Tell me how do you feel about becoming a dragon rider?"

Shocked answers to the question came whizzing through his mind. Him a dragon rider? Impossible! Still the idea of being high in the sky above all the idiots that called him short and the look on their face as he came flying down and landed beside them made him like the sound of the idea. Smiling he replied "Sure why not." As he gulped down the last of his ale and wiped his hand across his mouth. happily he stood up with the dark elf as they headed for high dragon hold.

Not trying to sound rude/mean/anything really though you may want to invest in some capital letters at the start of every sentence. And maybe break up the text into a couple more paragraphs.

How is your left eye two different colours? Also dual hammers and dual axes? Overkill much?

I am going to have to agree with Ramo. Wereas I am glad that you are interested in participating, it was very difficult to read your entry. That amount of weaponry is not only unwieldy, but completely unnecessary. Final call is revan's though.

Was Salas's mother a deep dwarf paladin? If so that is highly unlikely as only human, mountain dwarf and high elf orphans become paladins.

Also wondering why a paladin would marry a deep dwarf in the first place, so care to explain that in your background?

@Tyranno

First of all this is a big improvement on the kinds of characters (and post length) that you were posting when you first started on the rp threads, so well done.

Your character seems fine (though in my opinion one can never have enough in the personality section. Does Gribeard have any particular likes/dislikes, quirks for example? How does he think of himself, his race, his family, dragons, Modeus, the current state of the world. Would he want to be a dragon rider, how would he handle being one. What makes Gribeard tick? You don't have to answer all of those of course, it's just something to think about).

The only serious issue i can see is in the background. The gist of it is fine, a young hotheaded dwarf going out to recover his familie's stolen gold is great, dwarfs and grudges and all that. It's just that why after 50 years would Modeus come calling on him?

Perhaps instead you could have him be recruited by Modeus in the tavern, after he hands the egg back. Modeus could be impressed by Gribeard's attempts to get his family's gold back, his facing down of a dragon and freely giving over the egg and offer him a place as an apprentice.

Or keep it as is, but you need a compelling reason as to why Modeus would seek out Gribeard after 50 years had passed, especially if he didn't recruit him then and there.
