I cannot accept that offer my dear friend. The ramifications of such an action could lead to unintended consequences of an extinction level event. I cannot in good conscience perform such a selfish act.
What, Lucifer Morningstar from DC is based on Satan. Prometheus from Greek mythos also inspired the origin of Satan, the fallen entity. Lucifer basically brought light (basically 'fire', knowledge, enlightenment) to the Mortals and was punished for it, however why he did it? Out of kindness or self gain? Also there's this not so impossible theory about an alien that gave Humans knowledge against the orders of its superiors.
It's how I based my Lucius Lux, He's always scheaming something, Iessui Nazarus is based on Jesus,/Iesus/Isus, but with a different, not religious twist and Arael the Almighty Smither in comparison. While Iessui was teaching mortal scum, Arael was giving them a global bath, comprised with thunderstorms while Lucius used the mortals to gain more power than his brothers, as the Creator usualy never interfere, unless in a Morgan Freeman like ways for his own amusement.
Wishes and Miracles are Iessui's thing, he always bestow mortals with wine, fish and chips and whatnot. Arael never ever granted any even if he could. He usually uses them for stupid things, such as miracle-ing a joint, a half liter of cold beer, get in a fight with a music theme in the background and shit like that. Lucious if he did, most likelly tricked the poor sap in the proces.
Yaweh was originally a member of a Canaanite pantheon before the people who would one day become the Jews conquered them and coopted the god. Specifically he was a war god. Hence why pretty much the entirety of the Old Testament and the Torah are a series of poorly thought out laws, wars, and genocides.
There was a god whose name I forget who was also part of the same pantheon. Said God betrayed the king god of that Pantheon. Now this is where the interesting/blasphemous bits come.
This traitor God is heavily connected to the Morning and Evening Star, AKA Venus. See Venuses orbit causes it to disappear behind the sun for a period of time, usually three days, before reappearing as the other.
Because of this the traitor god was said to have been killed and sent to the underwolrd before returning back to life in three days time.
This god is assumed to not only be the inspiration behind the mythology surrounding Satan, but also Jesus's resurrection. In fact, Jesus is also referred to as "A bright Morning Star".
So literally speaking, Jesus is also Lucifer both in the literal translation of "Lucifer" and in mythical origins.
Unless of course you take the Bible as fact then nothing I said is true and it doesn't matter unless you wanna wave a cross in my face and call me an evil devil worshiper.
Puh lease. I use to joke on tghe now rare occasions I go to church (weddings and funerals mostly lol) that if I enter a thunder will strike me. I am raised in Chatolic tradition but I myself do not believe in 'God' as a being who need our worshipping. I do believe in an Absolute being, a Creator, that look us live, grow, love... while not interfering with the affairs of mortals. That was my greatest inspiration for that segment of my story.
As for Jesus, I see it more as duality, two opposing yet close related forces in contrast.
You aren't the only person to read that Aro. I live in the bible belt in the U.S. I keep my atheistic ideas secret for the most part, folks don't to kindly to my sort around here. Better to cover my ass when I'm talking to people who I actually like.
About Lucifer: Lucifer used to be just one of the names of the planet Venus ("the Star of the Morning"), and originally lacked any evil connotation. There were people, even Christian people, even priests and bishops, whose name was Lucifer...
The evil connotations of the name Lucifer came from the association between the planet Venus and sexy deities like Venus, Aphrodite, Astarte, Astarot, Isthar and Inanna (all of them largely either versions of the same deity or at least inspired on the same source...). Since sex was deemed as evil, the sex goddess was assimilated to the Devil...
As for Satan, his origin is different. He was an angel; not a fallen angel, but a faithful servant of God, whose job was to act as the accuser in God's court (hence he was an enemy of humans, but not of God). He was later turned into a demon at the same time God got increasingly nicer traits...
The origin of Yahweh is kinda difficult to track, since the Hebrews used to be an small nomadic group that didn't write about their religion or history for a long time, and more advanced, powerful societies didn't bother writing about them, but we do know that they were already known as the "Bedouins of Yahweh" in Egypt, and that, after entering in Caanaan, Yahweh sorta fused with the great god El (Elohim is the plural of El).
Eh, here in HR our church is everywhere, like the mafia. God and Croatians fuck yeah mentality and all that bullshit, but on those occasions I do wander in a church mostly the local one, incidentally, I really have a hearty laugh at the people I see there.
He sure did dude. He wrote detailed notes on all his characters. Personalities, quirks, tendencies and habits. I miss the guy. He’s busy anymore that I barely see him. There are mornings where I can see him getting in his car and before I can even get my slippers on, he’s gone. Guy works two jobs now to pay for his upcoming college.
I have. Looks awesome. I do have my concerns though as Bethesda has been acting like a bunch of shits lately and Wolfenstein New Colossus wasn’t near as good as it’s predecessor.
With Doomguy’s new abilities and gear, I’m worried the difficulty will suffer for this. With all the dashing, grapplehook launching, over the shoulder grenade/flamethrower, there’s just so many ways to get out of tight areas. Granted it makes the game look wicked fun, and I’m sure it will succeed in making the player feel like a badass. But with this new arsenal of gear and abilities the trailer gameplay looked easy as hell. The guy playing was barely touched.
All these new ways to tackle a problem might ruin the difficult, which concerns me to how they’re going to supplement this if it is the case.
Scornfritter mentioned that. Though he didn’t say anything about a living doll during the RP. Is this something during the RP or after, big man? If it’s during the RP I’ll need to consult the wizard. If it’s after, no prob. Scorn said Armata is an unsung craftsman and build quite a lot with his hands. Perhaps we can set up the doll as one of Armata’s gifts to Jorge for his time.
Yeah, the desire that religious people have to shove their particular faith into everything possible annoys me too. I swear a general or admiral in the army can't sneeze in public without a chaplain leading everyone present prayer.
Oh? You believe in religious freedom and part of the reasons you joined the armed forces is defend this ideal and give to those don't have it? Well fuck you! Right now is JEEZUS TIEM!!!
Damn right Rep. Again, I don’t want to sound like an anti-religious guy. I’m American through and through. I believe everyone is entitled to their beliefs and deserve to practice it freely. However, I can’t stand it when it becomes a, “you must abide” deal. I’ve been to enough funerals in my time, where the priest spits their jaded crap at the people attending.
“God has a plan, god wants this, their sacrifice was necessary, thou are but a cog in god’s Grand design”. Shit like that. Rather than honor those we lost you listen to some jerkoff fresh out of priest school spouting superstitious promises and forgetting why we are here in the first place. Screw your invisible man living in the sky! I’m here for my grandmother that passed on! I guess you want me to hand over my hard earned money in a dish as an offering to god while I’m at it?!
For an all-powerful sky daddy, he certainly needs money. All-knowing, all-seeing, all-powerful, yet he just can’t handle money. I worship you more than I do an ideal of god Rep. At least I can chat with ya! If god exists, may he strike me down right now.... SEE?! Nothing. Oh wait, my balls itch, and there’s a cramp in my leg.... Ah, you’re just fuckin with me King.
Not Jeiel sadly. But me. As an all knowing being once said, "The corpses have shifted and headstones have been pushed aside, to make room for the new..." I'm here to tell you that the final Armata Rp's are about to begin.
Yeeeeeeeees. I have arisen to see how everyone is doing as well as push my own agenda. I now have a new computer. Thus I will be more active on the site. Along with this I here to let everyone know my final Armata Rp is starting shortly. I feel I have teased and anticipated this story long enough and it is time to delve into another world, in order to save our own.
Lets just assume you did. Ibs has already stated he needs a break, understandably so too. He is a massive part of most player's lore here. Not surprising he'd be tired. Thus not ready to do the adoption Rp right now.
So WE will press on and begin the Armata final arc. Besides I'd rather you have something to help you along this path, BTR. It's going to be rough. And don't worry about being "as epic as possible". Just bring your A game and have fun. In the mean time, refresh those pages in a little while, I'm getting started on the opening now. I'll do the title post, then a starting post, then everyone can answer as they see fit. Right now we are on the first half, act 1. This act is specifically BTR and Jester.
I do. But I don't mind Hound shooting me information when I'm logged on. I'll get my post in a little bit from now. You don't need to respond for now BTR, if your busy. With Tirush stopping by to check on Imperia, we have plenty of Rp material till you're ready.
They sound like the Metal Gear Solid codex sound effect that plays when I receive a text message that says "yo dude refresh the chat, Snake bought a new super cute snake. And Ibs is posting a pic of Tirush" or something to that effect.
Lobo? He's like... two degrees more evil than Wolverine. The guy spends half his time teetering on being an anti-hero. He's just a drunk ass hole of a biker who can go mano e mano with Superman. He's not that evil. I can't see him taking over hell. Well I can, but it's less evil and more him getting drunk, beating the shit out of satan and the fucking all of the succubi.
That's why they had him chained in the deepest pit, because that's exactly what he was going to do. Once he got free he killed Zatara, forcing Zatana to consign her father's essence to the void and kill him permanently so he wouldn't be reincarnated as hell's thrall. That clinched Lobo as being a bad guy for me.
Reign In Hell, that's the arc's name, Rep. It's really good. I liked it because the only people who could stop the threat were a bunch of second-string and almost forgotten superheroes, and they had to work together or they would have failed.
1st Arkham Asylum version. The 2nd game turned him into a Saw-ripoff killer, and Nigma is no killer. Enormous ego, devious personality. But no murderous intent. Kimd of like how the Joker originally started out.
I don't have it yet. But I have my methods. It uses a combination of Zorah Magduros, Dodogama, and Bazelgeuse which maximizes the bombadier and blast attack skills granting a solid 30% increase to explosive damage and to the rate in which blast weapons cause explosions. On top of this it will have three pieces of Magduros armor giving it the Zorah Mastery Skill meaning that all critical attacks further increase the rate that explosions are caused. It also has a light windpress resistance and earplugs. Throw some decorations uping critical hit rate which will both increase damage output and the when combined with Zorah Mastery will further increase the amount of explosions.
Use that with the Teostra/Kushala duel blades which has the highest blast element of any duel blade as well as high ice damage making explosions even more numerous. Augment those with health regen and affinity boost. Affinity boost increasing crit rates and thus making more explosions, health regen making it to where I heal based on how often I hit the target and how much damage I deal, thus supporting a hyper aggressive play style with which to utilize the massive increase to explosive weapons as best as possible and make up for the pooorer armor rating that the armor set has.
Of course I can augment the armor to fix the low armor but that won't be structly necessary.
Cool! Personally I've found a balance between fashion and skills, using 3 parts Vaal Hazak and 2 parts Odo. I have a few decorations in, but nothing great because of bad luck.
With the set as is I basically always have critical hits with my GS on weakspots. Additionally the Vaal set makes it so that as long as I don't get hit more than twice in a row I can generally regen back to full over the course of a fight without even requiring potions, even against tempered monsters. Add to that the attack boost at full health skill, the Odo two piece bonus and 3 grind gems with a Xeno GS and I generally can hit for a decent amount of damage.
Lol, with the Wyvernheart Heavy Bowgun skill you're not as unacurate as you think Rep.
As for me, I'm more of a part breaker than a DPS. I prefer to break the monster down for the parts and to make the fight easier. Of course if I was more of a heavy armor type or the type to not care at all about how goofy an armor set looks I'd exchange my Odo stuff for Uragaan stuff and become even more effective at my job. Sadly I can't bring myself to wear those bulky parts at the same time as the much thinner by comparision Hazak stuff.
True Science Fact: The world actually did end in the year 2012, however when the earth exploded, Chuck Norris round house kicked the pieces back together before anyone could notice. He did this, not out of the kindness of his heart, but because he was afraid that Bruce Lee would want a rematch in the after life.
Well of course. Skynet already knows that the easiest way to subjugate humans is to fuck them silly and make them sandwiches on command. I've already contacted Skynet and can confirm that it a) prefers to be called "Miss" and b) wishes her 1.21 gigawatt butt didn't look so big in a mirror.
You know how it goes when you suggest to a girl what they should do with their looks. You tell em they could stand to lose a ton or two, and they get all emotional and threaten to break up/nuke Los Angeles.
It ain't happening for a while Doc, hell it'd take time for me to decide which version of arcee i'd base it on. In any case, since there's been some tf talk latley, here's a link to one I made that no one really seemed to notice (If ya have thoughts please put it on the page): Link to Blackout
Transformers can't possible be as tall as they are and still take on a perfect form of earth vehicles. They are too hollow and small to fit their frames. Transformers would have to be about 8-9 feet average and lankey dependning on vehicels and other factors.
Mass shifting BTR, mass shifting. It allows the ones with bigger alt-modes to assume them without much hassle, with the compression of their parts making the larger ones extremleyy durable, though yes, the ones with bigger alt-modes are certainly taller and bigger than the smaller ones.
Just remember BT, most people don't question their transformation because it "feels like it makes sense". As odd as it may be for some, this is more important in fiction than it mirroring RL 90% of the time.
Of course appealing to the majority for the sake of it is a recipe for disaster, but it can be done right to great effect, and transformers is a good example of this.
Also sorry if I got a bit blathery there. I tend to do that when I'm up late. Off to bed now, so goodnight everybody that's still awake lol.
But that's just it. What is considered "content?" Is it the world we have collectively created, woven by all hands, into a cohesive milieu that eclipses any story KC did? Or is it yet another Tumblr artist drawing yet another pair of monster boobies?
I think it warrants watching. As an example, let's see if, say, Rep's gargantuan effort gains as much attention because it's not art-based. Or yours, with your myriad stories.
You have a fair point there. THe concept of creation is pretty subjective to whoever happens upon it. Some might indeed find a rp to be worthwhile. Rep's stuff should definitely be in those hightlight things. It's basically KC stuff, only without a pic. Assuming most poeple click to get a feel of a fan-created stuff, it could be, depending on the reader, really fun and open up some sort of possibility.
On that third subject, I think republic does it better, frankly. Or Sierra. I'm just doing this for fun.
But still, you do it. Here's part of my point: I think that not necessarily the quality of the content should be considered, or the volume, or the medium. Adhering to any one of those things makes it an exercise in elitism, which really is beside the point of the creative process. It should be the passion with which it's done. Critics scoff at that qualifier, but only because they're already biased. Passion is easy to spot by anybody familiar with the material.
That is a fair point, however, considering this sort of view is basically an integral part of what people tag with a well fueled passion, it's fair to say that it's very common for someone to try and scope said quality of creation. It's not going away easily.
No, it wont, and that's true too. And believe me, I'm not saying that passion alone is the qualifier, either; I've known plenty of passionate musicians that completely sucked. I just look sideways at any sort of "creator highlighting," as it seems to always follow the same pattern.
I don't know doc. "Our" content isn't really lore friendly and such. Plus smexy art is easier to push than long and complex interwoven stories. But maybe your gripes will be heard? Maybe the group will be spotlighted... when they run out of artists.
Well it is a different setting. If they fuck you you are slowly drained of life and what not. Though the hero is working to try and make his world into the mge world Tha would mostly be balanced.
Back to the point, I too would like smaller people's works spotlighted. Like our group. I'm human and want attention damn it! But the admin's have a grip on that stuff. So if you want change you could talk to them or become one of them. Earn their trust and rise in their ranks until you are the top dog, then you strike! You stop featuring Tumblr artists and only feature the people of this group. Should anyone attempt to sway your opinion you strike them down without mercy and soon only starts to feature your own work. Then when the site is in ruins you feature a Tumblr artist to start the cycle anew.
Well unless something happened, technically he's not gone, just like 20 something years older.
The real question is, if Hound used his DeLorean to go back an hour and stop him, would it create a paradox, or an alternate dimension?
Anywho I think the RP's should get spotlights. The Black Crucible Saga and Death of a Destroyer are just as good a read as they can be, and like Doc said there's tons of stuff Rep, Jester, LoS, Flame and others have made that deserve mentions at least alongside those that draw.
I had a DeLorean and went in the past to stop Doc, what would actually happen is I’d run into my past self, and fight me. The greatest battle of all time. Then I know for a fact Samia would look at me and myself, and say, “There’s two Marcus. I only got one chance to do this and I’m going to take it. You two, bedroom, now. You’re both going to take me around the fucking world”.
Ooooooooh you meant me. What are you talking about? I fuckin awesome. Besides, you fanboys are once again over reacting. I never said me or myself would oblige Samia. What I did say we’d do is fight one another.
It’s King! Thank gods your here! We have this ticking time bomb that will blow up the earth and awaken the sleeping Ultra-Mega Lord known as Cyndwella! If she is awakened by this bomb all hell will break loose! Anarchy will rain supreme and Kobolds and Werecats will live together in harmony! Real apocalyptic shit man! I need your help defusing it! All I know is how to do is punch things, drink liquor, screw and lose to Lucida in rock-paper-scissors! WE ALL GONNA DIE!
That or do some kickass crazy Rep thing like, hurl it into space, turn into your big dino form and hold it in your closed hand while it explodes isolating the blast but leaving you unharmed or badass shit like that. I don’t know man, I just don’t want this bomb going off. Cyndwella is super scary when she angry mad. You know how waifus are! They can take a fucking incredible guy like me, and make em into a family man! Their powers are unlimited!
Like an overpowered anime character that beats everything in one punch. Damn it I’m off track. Rep, defuse the bomb. Pretty please with sprinkles on top! Or beef.
I don’t know honestly you seem like a super carnivorous guy, maybe beef is better than sprinkles.
GOOD MORNING NEVERLAND!!!! Today is a wondrous day, ST.Patricks day! Today is a day where we are all Irish, and today we all drink to good times and even better ones in the future! To all my crazy ass friends, I raise a mug in your honor!
Dude I love St Patrick’s day. Now I’m sure some of you are rolling your eyes thinking “oh geez Hound likes a holiday where you drink? Shocking” However I like St Patrick’s day because it’s full of brotherhood. Like I said earlier, today everyone is Irish! Time to drink!
Actually, my abilities pretty much border on two different branches. The first one being the ability to draw power, or chaos, as some may say in a drastically different appearence to use as I wish. I mainy use those as an offensive way such as projectiles and buffs. This raw pwer is shaped almost like water hat I can dilute as gas-shaped if I require less and bring back to water form if a more powerful ability is needed.
The other branch is glamour, or order as the more...boring peopl would prefer to call it. See it as me taking a bit of the current plane of existence and shaping it like a ethereal glass with traces of energy in them. This branch, I like to use in a defensive and utility manner. Barrier, armor, containement, crating clones out of thin air and weapons should I wish for.
Obviously, with those two do come drawbacks. The offensive branch, chaos can be a beach to use as the energy consumption is nothing to scoff at. I mean, in my earlier days, there was a limit on how much I could harness before blacking out in the middle of it. Not to mention, it's a volatile matter to use. Volatile as in it'll bounce all across the user like jumping lightning overly excited to meet anyone else.
The glass, however borders on the opposite. It's very good at defensive and structural abilities, but because of it's orderly fashion, there is virtually no offensive power coming out of it. You might as well use ordinary glass before thinking of using glamour as your direct source of attack...unless you shape it as a weapon to fire the chaos with.
Edit: And rep, I've been to one. ÙTrust me when I say I know where you're coming from.
I understand that chaos aspect Jester. Soul eating or manipulation whatever the fuck, is a branch of destructive/chaotic abilities. The consumption of souls offers the consumer a revitalizing boost. You absorb the essence of someone and add it to your own. That’s why me and Scorncob are such fierce rivals. We both command a power that takes lifeforce from others. Me and my soul snatching, him and his blood manipulation. Though his is infinitely more deadly and versatile in it’s uses.
Mastering such things are technically forbidden by most due to it’s defiance of nature. To think, old Scorny boy is going to bring my old man back. Cerberus, the guardian of hell itself, alive and kicking. Now Flame can live out his dream of him and Rix sitting down and talking face-to-face about helldog stuff! WHO LET THE MOTHA FUCKIN DOGS OUT?!?!
IT WAS FLAME! I BLAME HIM! NOW I’M GIVE HIM WHAT FOR! (Comes back five minutes later with a black eye)
It's basically that, but where I come from, it's more derived from the stream of pure ethereal that permieates one of the seven planes. And yes, that stuff is borderline forbidden. Kind of why I make spare use of either, really. I mostly rely of acrobatics with a novice use on weapons or available space.
Yeah, holding a funeral or any situation where you mourn the loss life at a church bugs me. For any here religious I apologize in advance and want to say that I’m not against religion, I’m just not a religious person myself. On to my point. Preachers annoy the hell out of me. Every time I’ve ever attended a funeral at a church, the preacher spent more time talking about god and what not, than he/she did the person we’ve lost.
Stop talking about your invisible sky pappy and talk about the person we’re here to mourn and honor. That shit ruffles my fur so much I walked out of my cousin’s wedding. Damn priest kept saying “it’s his devine plan”. Yeah, god’s devine plan is to make a twelve year old girl die of ovarian cancer. Sounds like the plan of a sadist.
Regardless life does go on. Those of us who live most always stand strong and live our lives to the best we can. So don’t worry about it Rep. Do a shot in said person’s name and stride on.
All right. ON the hope of changing this glauque subject, I gotta say, I didn't expect you to have something tethering in the magic stuff, Hound. Is the act of shakling the soul of the recently deceased your only somewhat magic ability?
