There will be no killing unless you decide to be a ginormous jackass. That's when me and Josh step in. :P

I'm not exactly sure what you'd hope to accomplish with that beyond pissing off the RPG directors (read: Kody and myself) for derailing things for no reason.

It sucks going 0-5. You lose all 4 of your bot fights for the week and you also lose at life.

I feel like it's worth pointing out that I hold no real-life animosity towards you, TNS. my character just doesn't like yours very much :v:

It was funny at first, but I really don't appreciate some of the characters trying to kill others off. :v:

Then he shouldn't've told me to jump in the river&#33; But yeah, no animosity towards you either.

Gonna re-iterate what I said in TNS' RP.

I'm unavailable 4pm-midnight (EST) on weekdays because of my work hours. Weekends are fine. Because it's via an agency, once in a while I might get a day or two off a week, so I'll let you know if that happens. Case in point: I won't be around to update this until the morning or early afternoon. :v:

It's about that time again&#33; Stat update number 2&#33; As of entering First Commandment:

Characters who have not revealed their names: Benzine/Benjamin, Smoke/Casey, Electro/Bryan, Kadius, Draktar
-No change from last time. Nearly 200 posts in, now, it's only a matter of time before some more names are dropped.

Enemies defeated: 5
-Shortly after the last stat update, we ran into a group of trolls and, well, they died. I'm not counting the guards that Keldar knocked out.

Crimes committed: 1
-Knocking out the Ekram guards/Illegal entry to Ekram.

Incidents caused accidentally by Kadius's magnet: 0
-Against all odds...

I lost the file I was using to keep track of everyone's speaking lines. RIP that section, I guess.

<div class='spoiler_toggle'>Character analysis (these are my opinions, don't kill me over this :v )</div><div class="spoiler" style="display:none;">
-Drew: It seems like he's toning the attitude down a bit, perhaps out of fear of Nexios. At this point it's hard to predict how he'll act from here, or if his decision to not kill Heddwyn was sincere. At any rate, if he can keep himself alive (ie. not piss off the Daath) he'll be invaluable in combat and the party will likely respect him for that, even if they don't particularly like him.

-Heddwyn: Initially a reasonable fellow, Heddwyn's use of his magic has taken a toll on him mentally and his behavior is now comparable to Drew's at the very start of the campaign. Taking into account his recent interaction with Casey, I think we can expect some major character development for one or both of them soon. As long as he can control his temper, that is.

-Benzine/Benjamin: He hasn't done or said anything significant yet except force-feed a troll some fire. Hard to say where he'll go from here, mostly because of the lack of events he's involved in. Maybe we'll see more from him soon?

-Smoke/Casey: She's decided to go for the long con and work with the party to achieve her own goals. Seeing Heddwyn in his weakened state has led her to try and wrap him up in her plans. She's not completely unshakable, though: Heddwyn may be able to change her mind, but if she changes his first... well, we'll see.

-Rustahg: The evil psychologist and her faithful demon present an interesting moral dilemma for the Daath. She's also the only one who's noticed anything off about Casey. Even more interesting, she seems to acknowledge and embrace her own evil tendencies. Her analysis of people's morality will be very useful for the party, but may also land them in trouble with some higher-ups. I think she might also be able to bring Casey over to the good side. Does she want to, though?

-Electro/Bryan: Another character who hasn't done much yet. So far, he seems like your typical 11-year-old with electric powers, but surely his backstory will come into play eventually. He has the potential to bring out best (and worst) in the other characters.

-Kadius: I see a more restrained Drew. Speaking of which, I can see the two of them butting heads in the near future. Considering that a good portion of the group makes use of metal weapons, he may be forced to play the role of peacemaker with his magnet if infighting becomes a problem.

-Draktar: Yet another character who has done next to nothing. From what I can tell, he seems to just be along for the ride. I'm curious to see how he'll act when things start to pick up.</div>

Username/Alter-ego: Kyraxa
Real name: Kyraxa
Gender: Female
Race/Species: Korgoxian Battlelord (see History and Description for details)
History: Eons ago, the Korgoxian Empire - the very first Great Empire of the Universe spread across dozens of Galaxies, conquering systems with abandon, and right at the front lines of these myriad wars were the Battlelords. While the Korgoxians themselves were masters of sciences still not remastered, they created the Battlelords as their mightiest warriors, the ones who would break the lines of their enemies and crush their mightiest defenses. Each was created individually using genetic engineering and immense cosmic powers to create beings who could go toe to toe with the strongest the Universe had to offer, sterile so they could not reproduce but sustained as immortals through the life support in their armour. However, following the Dark-Star Great Rebellion, the Korgoxians were annihilated from the face of the Universe, as were most of the Battlelords. The few that survived, now masterless, wandered aimlessly through the Universe. Kyraxa was one such, working as a mercenary for many millenia, she is gradually gaining some greater sense of her own being and now at least has some very crude moral code that she operates by.
Description: Around 9 foot tall and built like a tank and covered almost entirely in bulky Jack-Kirby esque Battle-armour that is never removed: in this case near-black with turqoise markings which shift to red when using more energy.
Power(s): Although prodigiously strong in her own right, much of her current power level is derrived from her Battle-armour which contains life support systems that have features including preventing aging, fixing poisons and disease, accelerating healing and have back up systems to keep food energy and water supplied for several months and even provide enough air to survive in a vacuum for up to 24 hours. The armour itself needs some fairly heavy ordinance to get through, but once out of combat it uses nanotechnology to repair any damage it have sustained.
She also carries a customized Ythlaki Storm Cannon - normally a piece of artillery mounted on medium sized ships - without a space-engine to power it though it requires a very sizable battery for each shot, and only has 3 such batteries right now. More usually in combat she uses an enormous but mundane two handed mace.

Strength: 16
Will: 2
Stamina: 12
Speed: 4
Intelligence: 4
Perception: 2

How's that?

Seems fine to me, Alex. :)

I'll resume the RPG on the weekend. Current state of mind is not one for creating updates and it likely won't be until Saturday. :P

Okay, this is why I was loath to begin the RPG in the first place. I mean, YES, I really want to complete an RPG, but there has to be interest.

Guess what?

There's not much interest anymore.

Only 2 of the remaining guys are really active, and the guy I had to kill off refused to follow the plot. What do I need to do here? Do I just go on with Gabe and Brad (and Alex when I include him), and that'll be it? I don't know how I feel about that.
