VAMPIRE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT QUESTIONS
YOU & SIRE
Where you were embraced? Into what clan? What was your sire's reason for embracing you? Was it love, vengeance, pity, your talents or simply a coincidence or bad luck? Did you know your sire before? Were you embraced voluntarily or violently?
How is your relationship with your sire? Do you hate him or are you grateful? How does he treat you? Does he manipulate you, guide you or ignore you? Or maybe he did abandon you completely?
How is your sire? Is he respected, hated or feared among others? Why?
What's your name? Is it real or fake?

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT QUESTIONS
CONCEPT: Here you input brief (mostly two words or max one sentence) description of your character. The concept should somehow flesh basic mood of your character. Some people use combination of adjectives and professions.
STORY/CHRONICLE: Choose his role in your story. Is he main protagonist? Ally? Antagonist? Important Side Character? If you are creating roleplaying character for your chronicle then decide if he is player character or storyteller NPC. For interviewing minor characters you can cut off most of the questions and let them ask only questions relevant to their role in your st
Malkavian Roleplaying GuideMalkavians are by far, the most difficult Clan to roleplay. It's not easy to pull off a convincing Malk, avoiding clichés and ridiculousness. Yet, there are a few simple and easy guidelines I'd like to share with you to help you create or improve your character.Malkavian Roleplaying Guide1 year ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
The tips aren't arranged in any particular order. And they are by no means stiff rules. Instead, they should be treated as advice from the cranky old aunt who has been roleplaying with varying intensity for about a decade.
Shall we get started? We shall.
Malkavians are diverse. What makes this Clan so wonderful, is that virtually anyone can be a Malkavian. Their Embraces may s

(Ideas: Does your character panic or assume it was a misunderstanding? Will their feelings change as they "cool off"? Will they storm out without a backwards glance or seek resolution? Would they forgive their partner?)

Foxtrot Jones was a binder, one without a creature in his service and he was searching for the right one. A lot of binders see the creature they tie themselves to, to be a commitment and not one to fall into lightly. He knew he wanted an elemental as they were powerful creatures and intelligent. He always felt a draw for them and wanted to find one to be his.

When considering Demonkin you first must ask yourself what is a Demonkin? The truth is only they are certain about their nature and we only know what we have observed over the centuries of contact with them. Demonkin in general appear to be a form of spirit that possesses the bodies of insecure people in order to spread chaos and devastation in their wake. They appear to have a compulsion to lie and manipulate even if they have no desire to do so. They are capable of performing feats of magic that seem to reflect of either their personality of desire of the

For some reason people are curious about my tastes in animes recently O_o
It's a short list because I have the same peripheral experience with animes as I have with video games. I have seen a few in my time and I've enjoyed them, but I'm not likely to be up on the most popular animes. As such this list reflects my own tastes and little else, but that's hopefully what was asked for
5: Justice from Afro Samurai
-This is mostly because Ron Perlman's voice makes for a wonderfully snide and sneering villain, but also Justice is special because of his ideology. To Justice the necessity is in his own words 'One man taking ultimate power to secure ultimate peace' and although he clearly enjoys battle he's never seen to attack or even disadvantage anyone who does not attack him first. He also apparently has the ability to decapitate people with his pistols which is one of the oddest abilities I can think of for an antagonist, even in anime.

10: Rosario + Vampire
-Yes it's a fairly trashy harem/school/comedy anime but after a friend of mine tricked me into watching this I found myself actually enjoying the characters. Rosario herself is the rare instance of a charming female character: not an empty-headed bimbo or a depressed warrior girl, but instead an outgoing slightly off kilter person who tends to resent her violent alter-ego which is an absurdly powerful vampiric monster. It was a rare instance in which the love affair felt more like a genuine friendship to me as opposed to a purely physical relationship or a melodramatic one.

He was in love with a woman fair.
He showered her with compliments,
But she didn’t even know that he was there.
So John has himself a solution,
A way to win the girls heart.
He decided to serenade her,
And made the whole graveyard take part.
Decomposing backing singers,
Aunties, uncles in a line.
Forming Butcher shop quintets,
Dead as mutton,
But they still sing fine.
John was in trouble,
Where do I begin?
He’d gone to all that trouble,
But she wasn’t even in.
Now the torches are burning,
And John’s out of town.
“Better luck next time,
I’m Plymouth way bound.”
World Building vs Set DecorationI recently saw two productions neither of which I had high expectations of enjoying from what little I knew about them.World Building vs Set Decoration3 months ago in Personal More Like This
One in particular I ended up greatly being entertained by, but the other turned out so poor that it went from mere general interest to outright dislike and irritation.
Ironically both productions revolve around the concept of world building. One is devoted to the idea and bases its premise on trying to fabricate a franchise around a premise. The other production embraces world building but taken at face value it wouldn't seem to have anything to do with the idea, in fact world building logically might seem like the last aspect of the film in question.
Those two productions were the film The Man with the Iron Fists and the pilot episode to the television show Revolution.
And of the two I ended up really enjoying Man with the Iron Fists, and I nigh hated Revolution.
Revolution for those who don't know is a show built on the idea of an alternate future in which al

When Mr Blue arrives the city will fall. Though do not despair I have good news and bad news. The good news is that this does not happen very often as it is incredibly unlikely for all the Gods both old and Banished to arrive in a city at the same time.

top ten cartoonshey everybody, ETSS here for another review. This is something I've been planning for a while now, so I might as well get it out of the way. I'm going to list the top 10 greatest cartoons of our childhood. And yes I know, the nostalgia critic already made this list but here's the thing; Doug Walker is 10-20 years older than me, so his opinion and mine most likely differ greatly. Now I'm not going to be listing many anime on this list, because I just recently became a major otaku.

"Before humans were created, there were three races: Angels, Demons, and Nephilim. The Nephilim were the ones that could walk between worlds, unlike the Angels and Demons, for they were born of both and stronger than them. As time went by, humanity was born and advanced to present times. The Nephilim lived amongst them, but were then wiped out by Demons and a faction of Angels led by the Angel, Pyriel. Loathing the Nephilim for their abilities and their hybrid status, Pyriel allied with the Demon, Mundus to wipe them all out. Pyriel from that da

Abilities: Expert at throwing and fighting with boomerangs.
Daughter of ex-con, George "Digger" Harkness and Tess Mercer, Rowena's mother abandoned her with her grandmother to go work for Lionel Luthor while her father was in prison. Her father only came to her after her grandmother's death, even though he had been released from prison from a few years. They didn't have any way to relate to each other until her father decided to create some common ground by teaching her how to throw boomerangs. She trained initially to be better than him out of spite, but eventually came to love the pastime as she was a gifted natural. He taught her a few other not so honorable traits as well as how to fight...the hard way. After she had been adequately schooled, he decided he was comfortable enough to leave her on her own while he went to do a job to earn so
