BACKGROUND

Education or Training: Mostly either self-taught or taught by family members and the local school house, some additional training was also given by employers.

Character Background/Biography: Coming from an alternate Earth's deep subterranean, the Nevidus were a rather peculiar folk. With origins rather unclear and speculative, and relations with the rest of humanity on the surface having been detached for at least 2 millenniums. It was stated that in an age of prophetic level of strife among the Nevidus civilization, that the underground people shall Return to the surface to reunite with their surface dwelling brethren and grant them salvation from the strife that they endure. At least that was the wishful thinking, as the surface of Earth was one that they would then find to be just as bad as the world they had departed from.

Nivea was born to a small family in the Nevidan city of Bisith (found below Las Vegas), in a household with her parents and grandparents. Though it became more fractured when her mother had died tragically of illness when Nivea was age 4. Which forced her father to work very long hours in the shipping and packing business in the city's canals, so long in fact, that Nivea hardly saw her father enough to have really felt his parenting. Though that didn't mean he didn't loved her, she knew that part to be quite true.

Instead it was her grandparents that ended up parenting her the most, telling her plenty of their own life experiences, and teaching her what they knew while at it. She was of course educated a tad more formally but what education the city provided, and she has made plenty friends and acquaintances throughout her life. She eventually left her childhood home at age 19 to move more inwards towards the city's proper, to start on her own and be independent as a freelancer, just as she had wanted.

After a few years of working in and out with various employers in the City, doing various kinds of honest freelance jobs, she did eventually find stable living. Though as 6 years went by, she had slowly witnessed the decay that was happening in her City, the same kind of decay that was affecting every Nevidan city at that point. It had gotten so bad that she was becoming concerned about heading out anymore, knowing what kind of people were now prowling about. On a fateful night though, it was finally announced by the highest authority in the city that it was time for the prophetic Return to begin commencing, and it was on that same night that Nivea had gotten an mysterious and troublesome job from her current employer.

Unbeknownst to her, her employer had set her off to deliver a package for the Secularist Movement that has been causing trouble for the City's radical inquisition. And in an intercepting struggle for her package, she had left two inquisitors slain, having known that they would've likely killed her anyway for the trouble. And after still delivering the package that she never gotten to learn anything about, she was eventually apprehended and quickly set on her way to the chopping block the following afternoon of that day... At least until the mission team for her arrives.

She'll never know what would become of the Return, nor of the surface. There were bigger plans in mind for her.

@Gio. Excellent.

@Ched. New character added to tab.

@Torsi. You mentioned bringing in a concept character? Do you want to app them now so we can work them in?

But here it goes.

PERSONIFICATION LIFE
CHARACTER APPLICATION


PLAYER INFORMATION
NS nation nickname: Tori

Skill Level (beginner, intermediate, advanced): Intermediate?

How often can you post? Frequently, often multiple times per day.



CHARACTER PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS
Character Name: Johnathan Montressor

Character Gender: Male

Species (nation personification, human, alien, etc): Human

Age: 26

Appearance: A pale man with deep, blue eyes and well-groomed brown hair. He has a seemingly eternal serious face, and is rather muscular despite his average size. His person is often concealed under the outfit of his trade - long boots and trenchcoats, capes and face covers, and criminally stylish caps.

URL to Character Picture, if any: Face and Outfit.

Character Occupation: Hunter of Beasts, seeker of Eldritch knowledge.


OBJECTIVES
Primary Objectives are your character's main goals. This should be the thing that drives their part of the plot. When not engaged in stories, these are what occupy your character's thoughts or keep them busy. Examples include: acting on a desire to become a powerful and respected leader; attempting to overcome some horrible thing in the past which hinders the character on a day-to-day basis; seeking to break out their shell by overcoming profound shyness (getting involved with stories); comping to terms with a major flaw that inhibits the character from reaching full potential; etc.

Secondary Objectives are minor goals. These should be an undercurrent for your character when they are engaged in stories or on their free time. Examples include: acquiring weapons and becoming proficient with each one; improving sundered relations with a companion; improving their reading comprehension; mastering news spells; researching a cure for a plague; etc.

Objectives such as "making friends" or "finding love" are NOT acceptable. Please put much though into your character's objectives - they are what flesh out your character and one of the most important aspects necessary to portray the character as 3D.

Primary Objective: To learn...to put it very bluntly. The existence of Great Ones and other plains of existence is not unknown to the Healing Church of Yharnam, Montressor's home. Nightmares and Dreams are just as real as the Earth, and it is theorized that an infinite number of realms exist. Few men have seen such things, however, Montressor being among those few, and not because he held some great knowledge or ideas on them. His knowledge came from many near-death experiences and a brush with insanity, which inspired him to pursue knowledge further. His objective, simply put, is to study his surroundings and gain knowledge, either through investigation or by chasing danger for answers.

Secondary Objectives: To pursue the path of ascendance to a higher existence - whether it be in godhood or immortality. In his day, many sought immortality through the blood of beasts, and in invoking Old Gods to draw them into nightmarish realms of existence in which they would hunt and wallow in blood for all eternity; others sought to become gods, by studying and communicating in the tongue of the Old Ones, and attempting to transcend Human existence. He does not necessarily want to shed his Human form, but to know the true way to evolve Humanity and to take that knowledge with him.


MUNDANE SKILLS
These do NOT require points. These are the average, daily things your character can do. Examples are "drive a car", "speak one Foreign Language", "play a guitar", "write poetry". Some mundane skills come from your bio and are freebie. A soldier has gone through Basic training. However, Medic, martial arts or sniper would be a Specialized Skill or Talent.

List Mundane skills here
- Acrobatics, from jumping and rolling quickly about, to traversing dangerous areas, climbing, and maneuvering around obstacles.
- Cartography
- Marksmanship
- Playing string instruments; he fancies the cello and mandolin.
- Horseback riding
- General first-aid
- Melee combat
- Dancing


SPECIALIZED SKILLS AND TALENTS
These are specialized skills that set you apart from the average person. You have 7 points to spend here. Examples are swordsmanship, sniper, coercion, medic, wizarding, piloting etc.

  • Ability 1 and Points Spent: Marksmanship (Guns and Bows) - 3
  • Ability 2 and Points Spent: Melee Combat - 3
  • Ability 3 and Points Spent: First-Aid - 1
  • Ability 4 and Points Spent:


OPTIONAL SUPERNATURAL CHARACTERISTICS
You have 7 points to spend here on supernatural skills or abilities. Sonic Scream, Levitation, Spell Casting, Shape Shifting etc. Superman MUST have his kryptonite thus weaknesses are things which inhibit the ability. Restrictions are what can't they do with their power or what balances it. They can only use it when they genuinely need it? They can't use it for more then five minutes without serious side-effects? Some things are allowed without points. A pegasus has wings thus it can fly. A raptor is fast thus no points are spent in speed. These "natural" abilities should be listed here, however. What isn't allowed: teleportation beyond a few feet; the ability to alter or go back/forward in time.

  • Ability 1: Blood Infusion
    Power Level: 4
    Strengths: A hunter's weapons and tools are infused with their blood. Guns and arrows fire quicksilver projectiles, infused and created with blood, and their blades are made deadlier as they are fed blood. Blood is what makes a Hunter's world go 'round, and whether cautious or completely blood-addled, a Hunter owes their strength to their blood. If blood is low, a Hunter may even consume and infuse the blood of fallen foes for their work.
    Weaknesses: Drawing too much blood slowly hurts the Hunter, and therefor the Hunter must attack even more viciously and violently in order to draw more blood to use and stay alive.
    Restrictions: Blood infusion is restricted to the Hunter and their weapons and tools, which are made specifically for Hunters to wield.

  • Ability 2: Insight
    Power Level: 3
    Strengths: Those with vast insight can see Eldritch truths and comprehend the knowledge of The Great Old Ones. With enough insight, one who would be driven mad by such ghastly sights could see them for what they were, and face them head on.
    Weaknesses: The more wisdom one gains, the more they see; such a gift is also a curse, and often drives one to insanity if left unchecked.
    Restrictions: Even if one were able to comprehend forbidden knowledge and power, the ability to properly utilize it is not guaranteed.
MAGICAL OR SPECIAL ITEMS
If it's not on this list, your character doesn't have it. Magical items are rare and hard to come by. Please list what they can/can't do - treat them like a supernatural thing. Items not allowed: anything that can alter time; anything that allows a character to teleport beyond a few feet.

List:
- Hunter's Blunderbuss (high-impact, little skill needed)
- A Bowblade - sword which quickly transforms into a longbow; arrows seemingly produced from thin air (conjured via hunter's blood or blood of prey), when not transforned, it appears to be a normal longsword; forged after inspiration from another bow-blade wielding hunter.
- A small hand lantern, able to be fixed to a belt
- a small break-action pistol fitted with peculiar "silencing blank" rounds.
- A small and large hand bell
- A leather-bound journal


BACKGROUND
Be detailed please. You must explain how your character aquired their skills, talents, abilities, and special items. Wrap your primary and secondary objectives into it.

Education or Training: Service to the Healing Church of Yharnam, Foreign service as a Hunter.

Character Background/Biography: Johnathan Montressor was a Yharnam native; Yharnam was a labyrinthine city, once built on blood; literally, the city was built on blood, specifically the blood of the Church. Yharnam was the home of Blood Ministration, and healing blood was known to quickly mend wounds and cure disease. Yharnamites were crazy for blood, so much so that Blood-based drinks were more common than alcohol. For as blood-addled as people were, however, they knew that the miracle substance was not as wondrous as it would seem at first.

The blood was known to drive those who lusted for it mad. It was from the blood that the plague of the best came, affecting those who became too lustful of it, and the plague nearly destroyed the city several times. It was from these plagues that The Hunt began, and that Hunters were created to dispatch of the beasts. It was in the midst of these hunts that a young boy, hiding in the safety of his home in central Yharnam, witnessed the work of the Hunters done from an attic window, and was stricken with such curiosity that he would one day be driven to become a hunter of beasts himself.

He started small; as a townsman, recruited out of necessity, and took to the hunt with mild success. His career, however, eventually led him from his home city and out to explore the world, where he took to the hunt in other towns and lands, and learned through trial and error as he slaughtered beasts and protected the innocent.

Hunting beasts was not his only expertise, however. The Church came about from a split in the pursuit of finding Humanity's next evolutionary step, and in both the religious and academic circles, the knowledge of Greater Beings was well known. Some, like the Church, pursued the use of Blood of the Old Ones, hoping to ascend by consuming it - the side-effect being the plague of the beast. The old faithful scholars who did not commit to that path, however, sought to understand the language of the Old Ones, and to line their brains with runes and converse with the Eldritch beings in order to transcend - the dangers coming in insanity and the knowledge of nightmare realms.

Montressor had recalled his first encounter; the sight of the Amygdala, lesser Great One, and the truth behind the research of scholars and the church. Hunters were the branch of the Church tasked with protecting the people and the secrets of the Great Ones, though Johnathan was interested in more than hunting, as thrilling as it was. He knew that to commune with a Great One was to speak to a god, and to live on the edge of insanity, and it was known that those who wished hard enough, would find themselves inevitably drawn to a nightmare, a realm of existence formed by those Great Ones and entered as much physically as mentally.

He was determined to study this phenomenon. Just where would he end up if he entered another realm?

Primary Objective: To learn the knowledge of The Great Old Ones, and learn the truth behind their existence and role in the universe.

Some mundane skills come from your bio and are freebie. A soldier has gone through Basic training. However, Medic, martial arts or sniper would be a Specialized Skill or Talent.

List Mundane skills here
- Acrobatics, from jumping and rolling quickly about, to traversing dangerous areas, climbing, and maneuvering around obstacles.
- Cartography
- Marksmanship
- Playing classical guitar
- Horseback riding
- General first-aid
- Melee combat
- Dancing


SPECIALIZED SKILLS AND TALENTS
These are specialized skills that set you apart from the average person. You have 7 points to spend here. Examples are swordsmanship, sniper, coercion, medic, wizarding, piloting etc.

  • Ability 1 and Points Spent: Marksmanship (Pistols and Bows) - 3
  • Ability 2 and Points Spent: Melee Combat (blades) - 3
  • Ability 3 and Points Spent: First-Aid - 1
  • Ability 4 and Points Spent:


OPTIONAL SUPERNATURAL CHARACTERISTICS
You have 7 points to spend here on supernatural skills or abilities. Sonic Scream, Levitation, Spell Casting, Shape Shifting etc. Superman MUST have his kryptonite thus weaknesses are things which inhibit the ability. Restrictions are what can't they do with their power or what balances it. They can only use it when they genuinely need it? They can't use it for more then five minutes without serious side-effects? Some things are allowed without points. A pegasus has wings thus it can fly. A raptor is fast thus no points are spent in speed. These "natural" abilities should be listed here, however. What isn't allowed: teleportation beyond a few feet; the ability to alter or go back/forward in time.

  • Ability 1: Blood Infusion
    Power Level: 4
    Strengths: A hunter's weapons and tools are infused with their blood. Guns and arrows fire quicksilver projectiles, infused and created with blood, and their blades are made deadlier as they are fed blood. Blood is what makes a Hunter's world go 'round, and whether cautious or completely blood-addled, a Hunter owes their strength to their blood. If blood is low, a Hunter may even consume and infuse the blood of fallen foes for their work.
    Weaknesses: Drawing too much blood slowly hurts the Hunter, and therefor the Hunter must attack even more viciously and violently in order to draw more blood to use and stay alive.
    Restrictions: Blood infusion is restricted to the Hunter and their weapons and tools, which are made specifically for Hunters to wield.

  • Ability 2: Insight
    Power Level: 3
    Strengths: Those with vast insight can see Eldritch truths and comprehend the knowledge of The Great Old Ones. With enough insight, one who would be driven made by such ghastly sights could see them for what they were, and face them head on.
    Weaknesses: The more wisdom one gains, the more they see; such a gift is also a curse, and often drives one to insanity if left unchecked.
    Restrictions: Even if one were able to comprehend forbidden knowledge and power, the ability to properly utilize it is not guaranteed.
MAGICAL OR SPECIAL ITEMS
If it's not on this list, your character doesn't have it. Magical items are rare and hard to come by. Please list what they can/can't do - treat them like a supernatural thing. Items not allowed: anything that can alter time; anything that allows a character to teleport beyond a few feet.

List:
- Hunter's Blunderbuss (high-impact, little skill needed)
- A Bowblade - Undulating blade which quickly transforms into a longbow; arrows seemingly produced from thin air (conjured via hunter's blood or blood of prey)
- A small hand lantern, able to be fixed to a belt
- a small break-action pistol fitted with peculiar "silencing blank" rounds.
- A small and large hand bell
- A leather-bound journal


BACKGROUND
Be detailed please. You must explain how your character aquired their skills, talents, abilities, and special items. Wrap your primary and secondary objectives into it.

Education or Training: Service to the Healing Church of Yharnam, Foreign service as a Hunter.

Character Background/Biography: Johnathan Montressor was a Yharnam native; Yharnam was a labyrinthine city, once built on blood; literally, the city was built on blood, specifically the blood of the Church. Yharnam was the home of Blood Ministration, and healing blood was known to quickly mend wounds and cure disease. Yharnamites were crazy for blood, so much so that Blood-based drinks were more common than alcohol. For as blood-addled as people were, however, they knew that the miracle substance was not as wondrous as it would seem at first.

The blood was known to drive those who lusted for it mad. It was from the blood that the plague of the best came, affecting those who became too lustful of it, and the plague nearly destroyed the city several times. It was from these plagues that The Hunt began, and that Hunters were created to dispatch of the beasts. It was in the midst of these hunts that a young boy, hiding in the safety of his home in central Yharnam, witnessed the work of the Hunters done from an attic window, and was stricken with such curiosity that he would one day be driven to become a hunter of beasts himself.

He started small; as a townsman, recruited out of necessity, and took to the hunt with mild success. His career, however, eventually led him from his home city and out to explore the world, where he took to the hunt in other towns and lands, and learned through trial and error as he slaughtered beasts and protected the innocent.

Hunting beasts was not his only expertise, however. The Church came about from a split in the pursuit of finding Humanity's next evolutionary step, and in both the religious and academic circles, the knowledge of Greater Beings was well known. Some, like the Church, pursued the use of Blood of the Old Ones, hoping to ascend by consuming it - the side-effect being the plague of the beast. The old faithful scholars who did not commit to that path, however, sought to understand the language of the Old Ones, and to line their brains with runes and converse with the Eldritch beings in order to transcend - the dangers coming in insanity and the knowledge of nightmare realms.

Montressor had recalled his first encounter; the sight of the Amygdala, lesser Great One, and the truth behind the research of scholars and the church. Hunters were the branch of the Church tasked with protecting the people and the secrets of the Great Ones, though Johnathan was interested in more than hunting, as thrilling as it was. He knew that to commune with a Great One was to speak to a god, and to live on the edge of insanity, and it was known that those who wished hard enough, would find themselves inevitably drawn to a nightmare, a realm of existence formed by those Great Ones and entered as much physically as mentally.

He was determined to study this phenomenon. Just where would he end up if he entered another realm?

I like the adaptation. Nice! My primary concern is that Bloodborne lifts from Lovecraft, and Prim's canon takes precedence due to tenure with it. Have you two of you discussed any potential conflicts?

Check with him first to see if he minds, please. It would be the same were a player to bring in Fae, Star Wars, 40K etc.

PL checklist, in no particular order of importance:

- Drum up responses for Prim/Cer and Mon/Tilt + Background posts
- Voice meme for "Nuke McBadass"
- Finish "Human!Willow" oneshot that Mon wants
- Continue on PL site profiles
- Continue on NPC factoids for OSF

Hmmmm I CAN DO THIS.

That's alright. Considering how things are moving, you probably won't miss much.

A one-shot riffing on a TG discussing RL events. Quoted TG used with permission.



Acdemicianer Bela thumbed the holo-projector and waited for the image to stablize before returning to his lecture:

It's all good. I'm glad you can appreciate that an individual's actions do not necessarily reflect the goals or methods of a group.

That being said, the BLM, like all movements, must engage in self-criticism to succeed. Core members and allies like myself have to be on the lookout for reactionary behavior and correct it. Unfortunately, decentralization means I can't reach that far but I'll do my best where I am.

Regardless, you're a hero today, Swith. I hope that woman comes to realize it in time, as her kid probably did.

Get better soon! :)


"The inclusion of Revolutionary jargon in the middle of this personal note reveals it to be from the Pre-Republican Period of the Inclusive People's Democratic Libertarian Green Republic of San Diego. Some archeo-historians refer to the same period as Late American IX. By the Early Republican Period, the jargon would have occurred prominently at the begining of the message." Sandy paused his lecture to allow the students to impress that on their mnemonipads, for sure as summer followed spring, that would be on the exam.

The last of the slow thinkers eventually returned their attention to him. Time to give the more clever of his pupils a reason to consider entering his profession. He waggled his fingers, and the in-holo cursor moved to emphasize a tiny bit of the message. "While the trigraph B-L-M appears in a great many surviving Pre-Republican texts, we are still uncertain of its meaning. Perhaps a future archeo-historian will be next Champollion, recognizing the meaning of the cartouches."

A few pairs of eyes in the seated crowd lifted to study the holo more closely. Good, good, there was some hope for this timestream. He was the only of the Chosen in this timeline; this had better work.

A chime sounded, and Sandy hastily brought the class to an end. "Chapter Four for next time. Expect a quiz." Over the groans of his students, there was an ostentatious cough from a dark corner at the back of the lecture hall. Sandy automatically brought his hand up in a ragged salute. "Hail, Profit!"

He sighed audibly, and muttered something he knew the Minder in the back wouldn't understand, even if he caught it. "The only thing we learn..."

Seems good to me, everything else is just humor, my favorite kilt wearing samurai. :p

iNod. Nationalism!

@Gio. Reply done though it's weak. Sorry 'bout that.

@Agy. Swith bitched because she didn't get to post for Meps. I'll wait for that.

@Min. Too drained today to write something fabulous. See lackluster Marcus reply as evidence.

G'nite all!
