Modest Beginnings
His story begins in the mountains of the far north. His earliest memory is that of strife and division. Who cared who was to rule? What did it matter to those living like him? They all wanted taxes of some sort, or some kind of contribution. What did it matter who was in charge? Yet men and Jotun fought wars over it. Wasn't his problem. Growing up in the chapel he spent most of his time in communion. Yes he learned to fight, as his order was a militant one, but no they did not involve themselves. The Paladins of Drantia didn't get involved. They helped those in need, they hunted the occasional vampire, but overall they focused on order. All of that was soon to change, when Chaos struck their home. He was just a boy not quite yet a man when it happened. The smell was terrible, the smell of something burning without smoke. Brimstone and sulfur filling his senses he turned to his teacher to ask what was going on to a look of horror. Turning to follow his gaze he saw it. A towering demon easily as tall as two of them along with a horde of bat winged apelike demons cracking whips. Where had they all come from? Who had done this? None of that mattered as many rushed to battle to defend their lives. Picking up his weapon to fight as well, his teacher denied him. "Take the woman and children into the mountain, escape. Protect them" Opening his mouth to argue he was not given a chance. A bitter taste in his mouth he rushed to do as he was commanded calling on Odoacer to strengthen their light. Not a one of them returned. Weeks and weeks of rushing deeper and deeper into the mountains trying to escape eventually found them skirting a mountain range filled with an even bigger evil. Few of them were left when they reached Seringale, and the boy now a man did not know what to do. It wasn't long before they were pulled in by the watchman to find out what they were about. This is where his true story begins...


Description:

As you near closer you feel a sense of peace and radiance. You can't help but look for the source. Towering up and up, the bluish figure before you is impossible to miss. He is so large that he cannot fit through many doorways without crouching. Large, sea-green eyes peer down at you from a face that seems almost square in shape, and is accented by a large, bluish scar across his left cheek. His hair, if it can be called that, looks like a bed of icicles as it rests atop his head, refusing to be ruffled by even the strongest wind. His massive frame is bulging with muscles earned from a period of hard training.

    Killed by two Paladins? Wth? I was never killed by a Paladin... haha. Anyway, This was me. I wasn't great with Paladins when I played them before, and I wasn't great this time. I had fun but I wasn't really enjoying Paladin. Sorry Ked, I didn't want to delete this soon after you gave me this chance, but I wasn't really having fun. After a short break, I will roll something else, something that hopefully I will be better at!

      I've had that happen before where somehow I cause my own death and it shows up as that class killing me. On Thedius I died twice because of the hp cost of rend life and had two deaths by necromancers when I had in fact not been killed by any.

    Anyway, pretty sure only 3-4 of my deaths were one on one. All of them against either Taor or Veromos when I was in basically guild issue level gear.

    1. A ring I sought, a shiny band
      I knew at once, when you took my hand
      I'll chain you up, though you are through
      That's okay, because your corpse will do

        Interesting. Self-inflicted deaths shouldn't count in your killed by class. I'll make a note to fix that.

          I'd assume it's when that diamond skin fades for Jotuns?

          it would have to go to the last person to strike you then, within reason. like rocket league own goals

          imho the important statistic isn't captured - total kills, no penalties, all levels, vs total deaths, no penalties, all levels

          mobdeaths and self-kills obviously included in the above

      2. Well, it was fun fighting alongside you... Between you and Adrierra there were plenty of times I got involved in group fights of tag-team size (2 people) per side.

        On another note, this means yet MORE work needs to be done on the Mystique... I keep adding revisions in the hopes of actually publishing one and then stuff like this happens. *sighs*

            Good job here. It was nice being able to hand it over to someone that's as competent as you were, so I could focus on other things and not worry much about what would happen in cabal.

            Very active for the a good period of time which was nice. And as I said in game, be prepared for more than enough odd numbered fights as Commander. Good thing you did make friends with a person or two to help at times. Unfortunately it seems everyone typically bails out of their Justice characters once a new commander is picked so you got left alone to deal with things through pretty much your entirety of leading.

            Now make a someone who follows me, so i get to play with religions more. Thanks.

                As if. Shamans are super buff now. wish i had of remembered no weapon ward sooner would have destroyed more of your weapons.

                simplification of some of the weapon type/style mechanics should help with that
