Heavenly Journey of the Second Soul: Set-Up Thread

10 Apr 2010, 22:57

Hey everybody! Post if you've been accepted, lets get talking!

As an ice-breaker, tell everybody about your concept, or better yet, post what you're working on! And then we'll figure out past relationships (either prior to exaltation or from previous incarnations) and how everybody might know one another.

Yay~. I am not very good at explaining concepts all of a piece, but I am playing a pair of Secrets.

The First Age character is Saeta Heavenfang, a somewhat flighty, nosy little archer/hunter type who wants to be a biomagitechnician and learn things and fix things! They have a lot of personal toys of that kind, including a Stone of Gender-Changing that... gets used a lot. Their backstory's probably gonna take me sitting down without distractions for an hour or two.

The Second Age character is Coyote Hides In Roses, an "information retrieval specialist" from An-Teng. He's a tall, strong, prettyboy with a way of blending into the scenery who often gets mistaken for dumb- and in Exalted terms, he's not all that smart (Int 2/3), but he doesn't really have to be... He's an up-and-coming member of the Convention on Essence-Wielders and wants to cleanse Creation of corruption.

'allo allo. I will be playing your resident Abyssal this evening.

Meticulous Watcher of Silent Roads is a Dusk Caste under the Eye and Seven Despairs...so no one at all, basically :P. Originally from a small village in the South, she worked as a guide for caravans through the desert. This got her into a bit of a bind when a group of Dune People attacked the caravan, leaving her mostly dead. She agreed to the Black Exaltation more out of a desire to not die quite yet than a desire to see Creation destroyed. Since her liege has basically given her jack to do, she continues to act as a caravan guide, albeit now in the dark deserts of the Underworld.

Meticulous Watcher was a Solar once, of course. The second Solar to hold that shard (the first died after the Primordial War due to wounds sustained during the fighting) is a man by the name of Shining Obsidian. Shining Obsidian was born in Rathess, serving as part of the honor guard of the Raptok priest Tabiy Kinich. While his own Exaltation as a Dawn was celebrated, he much prefers the company of the Dragon Kings that he had served his whole life. He is a skilled martial artist, knowledgeable in styles common to the Dragon Kings as well as those better known by the Exalted.

Depending on the era in question (and mental state of the character), I will either be the resident mad scientist or medic. Details follow:

Wonder-Crafting Prodigy is a flashy magitech engineer with a number of assorted toys and geegaws and a half-dozen minikin technicians to keep them in working order. He grew up in the Eastern sticks (no pun intended), where you had to walk three miles to get to the nearest I AM terminal. ("Uphill, both ways! I'd always assumed it was lingering Wyld energy.") When he saw the wonders of Meru, he dove right in. His passion for airships and automata is exceeded only by his admiration for his elder Solars and an almost unhealthy fascination with Essence projection weapons.

Anya Valson is a much different person. Born in Whitewall, she wandered the outer edge of the Inland Sea, offering her limited skills as a chirurgeon while searching of her one true love: books. She received her Exaltation as she read the journal of a First Age engineer, and with it came a flood of memories, a voice in her head, and an indelible setting sun forever stuck on her forehead. Now, her medical skills are vastly improved, but compared to the First Age memories she has, they feel like a dollop of hand sanitizer in a world of filth. She seeks to revolutionize the medical capabilities of Creation, and neither she nor her switchklaive are constrained by anything like the Hippocratic Oath.

I was kind of wondering where the hell the other two people went myself.

Edit: I guess since they haven't posted we should start working out relationships and stuff, huh? Well, either of you folks want to be friends with the token Sid :3?

Yesss. I can see Saeta and Prodigy being nerdbuddies, and Quicks is good with Coyote and Watcher having met... so that works.

Please forgive the long delay.

The characters I will be playing are:

In the first age Hidden Waterfall is a Waxing Moon caste. Born in the south, Hidden Waterfall stands just over 5' with dark skin and red hair. With a powerful personality and a love of the flute, she is inquisitive to a fault, yet can talk her way out of almost anything.

While in the Second Age, that Exaltation came to a young man named Blazing Dirge and Silken Frost, a Full Moon caste. A tall, narrow man, he received his Exaltation after his sister was kidnapped and murdered. In his revenge, he slew those responsible, but lost his left arm and almost bled to death. Now he works as a bodyguard for hire out of Nexus, always wearing a glove and long coat on his left side to cover his Moonsilver prosthetic.
