I just like monkeys because I sorta see them like humans, with fur and tail. And that's the main ideal for me, heh.I hardly see any primate sonas! What inspired you to choose such an unusual species?
He considers it more an art form. And, he avoids conflict and combat, as in he won't fight. But ! He'd still provide support for others.Pretty cool concept you got going here, I love primates and bigger guys! What kind of storyline are you looking at for him? I see a lot of potential in a journey/adventure to become good at a craftsman/artisan type of role like a blacksmith. If he's avoiding conflict and combat but making weapons there's always that underlying relationship of the job to conflict.
Thanks, hehe. I wanna try something much more simple than the mess I have with my mammoth, so I don't get indecisive all the time.Interesting....you went with a monkey sona of the similarity of the Great Ape from DBZ?
Awesome concept! I love how he looks! Keep up that amazing work, because it only gets better from here on out!
Wondrous story and character idea! Top marks!
Indeed, but granted, I'll miss the mammoth form, but this is a welcome change! Also, what made you change the name as well? He used to be Cosmos, but now Sol?Thanks, hehe. I wanna try something much more simple than the mess I have with my mammoth, so I don't get indecisive all the time.
In fact I would simplify the mammoth too. A lot.
Oh no, the mammoth is still there, still named Cosmos. This monkey is just a different sona.Indeed, but granted, I'll miss the mammoth form, but this is a welcome change! Also, what made you change the name as well? He used to be Cosmos, but now Sol?
I like the name, but what made ya change it?
He considers it more an art form. And, he avoids conflict and combat, as in he won't fight. But ! He'd still provide support for others.
In fact, I'm working on his "gameplay (or RP) mechanic" right now, so stay tuned
Oh I already got the tools of the trade for crafting weapons down, heh. Straight up from my other sona... like this :I'm a sucker for support characters. They're always the ones I gravitate towards.
I main a gunsmith in non-furry setting I RP in who hates factional war but loves guns and making them and so he has that passion he considers a cursed dream, I think there is a lot of great thematic potential for smiths or anyone who makes weapons in settings that see plenty of conflict.
Look forward to the abilities! I'm trying to figure out what my sona's abilities will be too atm.
How to keep the temperature and intensity consistant and stable, for melting, hardening, cutting and welding the materials, yeah.So I guess getting good at using halo light is about learning how to cut precisely with it?
I'm guessing there's a catch to utilizing those other cosmic forces that's tied into the shamanism?
For that, I'm kind of thinking that he'd have to be possessed by eldritch cosmic entities so he can actually use those powers. How's that sound ?I don't really RP the class often but I really enjoy RP sessions where the Shaman have to negotiate with the elements and make personal sacrifices or go through tribulations in order to use their force, so I think it's a good comparison point.
But yes, if it's like that, then I think you got a great relationship between force of nature and career/craftsmanship! Abilities look good.
The setting sounds fun btw!
I'm not exactly a religious person myself, and don't wanna have my chars devote to religions either. If it's in a no-magic setting, then my guy would just be a standard blacksmith without those fancy cosmic forces.As it stands it seems like the cosmic forces are a focused on as resources with how you are describing them, but a resource he finds spiritual connection to his world through, so if he were plopped in a more realistic setting for example you can have him be a type who would use all the resources available to him to become good at his craft while associating with it in a way that fills that need to have a spiritual connection with the world, asking what religions they have and picking the one you think his current spiritualism would translate into the closest.
Alright, I'll see how it goes... I certainly do like stuffs to do with weapons though, so that's one confirmed.Can just figure the setting out via RP, if that's why you're worried about it. RP is forgiving for anyone who is indecisive, I mean, retcon is a term in RP for a reason, sounds like this is a character retcon. Flexible medium.
It's okay to change a lot it's just you exploring your preferences, things will become more decisive with time, if by disaster you mean a failed experiment, all experiments have results!
If you are often figuring out what you don't want then you're still on a path of finding what you do want by process of elimination.
As long as you let your RP friends know you're experimenting with your setting and you may change things their characters get defined by, and they're fine with that, should be alright.
I'm gladThe entity possession sounds like a good start btw!
Mostly just him not as good as any of the others. Everyone's good at fighting, hunting, gathering plants, or making herbal remedies, so on and so forth... while he never even knew what he liked. Those of his age disrespected him, made fun of him and/or just left him behind, while his parents were pretty disappointed in him.Maybe figure out what those specific conflicts he had with the tribe too, that kinda backstory definitely influences motivations, yeah?
Oooh, I get it! Nicely done then!Oh no, the mammoth is still there, still named Cosmos. This monkey is just a different sona.
His name is Sol Wacom right ?
Sol means sun, and Wacom is the brand of drawing tablet I use.
Sol Wacom also sounds like Sun Wukong... kinda.
