It saddens me to hear this news. Austin, you were the closest thing to a mentor I had. You inspired me, as you did to all of us, with your works. Though you're not here any more, the world is a better place for your impact on it. I'll carry on without you, but I'll remember what you've done, and I'll carry your wisdom to try to help the world in your place. Rest in peace, Austin.
I've never taken the time to plot out an entire game, it seems like it would be A LOT of work. I'll definitely keep it in mind though, unless there's more that I can do on the wikii than that, then I may consider hopping in ^^
Nothing much. Except for one thing that I was going to talk to you about. Now, you might think of this as selfish or me using you for creating my characters, but I need your help with Ominous again. I don't know how to come up with some unique powers for him that match his personality in anyway, so I could use some advice on how to do it myself so that I won't bother you or others about it. Thanks again and sorry for saying all those things about myself and for asking you too much.
Unfortunately, I don't really know what to tell you in terms of powers. I'd have to learn more about his backstory (since you never posted a finalized version on his page), what he looks like, and the world he's in before I could come up with any suitable powers.
What'd I'd reccomend though, is researching some of the villians or things that you took inspiration from to come up with powers or weapons. That's how I do mine. Normally, I'll find a cool object or design element and take that and expand it for a character.
Hey, Austin. As you can see by the title, I sort of need help coming up with a backstory for Ominous. I also have a suggestion that I wanted to show you to see what you think of it if you want. If you have any advice or ideas on what Ominous' backstory should be, be sure to reply if you want. Sorry if this is asking too much again and for apologizing too much.
[The suggestion that I was thinking of was a young Ominous having only one parent and a brother that was inseparable until something happened to him that made him selfish and cruel. After seeing what has became of his brother, Ominous decided to reason with him, but to no avail. He decided to kill his brother in order to stop him, which ended up shocking his mother and himself as well and lead to him getting kicked out of his house. After figuring the realization of what he just did, he came to the conclusion that this world and beyond needed to be destroyed in order to save it, including himself.] This was the suggestion that I was thinking of. It's a bit of a work in progress and it might be a bit too dark but I'd like to see what you think of it. Thanks for reading.
It's servicable, but there really isn't enough info for me to decide whether his "turn to evil" was justified or not. Family is family, and you'd have to screw up really badly in order for that to turn into hatred. It also doesn't really explain how he got into the position of power that allowed him to become a threat to the world.
It's obvious that he had built up an unrealistic, ideal standard for both him and everyone else, but what made him form that standard? What pushed him over the edge and made him think that the world should be destroyed because it could never fit his moral ideals?
Hey there, Austin. I have another idea that I want to show to you. I hope you enjoy it.
[Another idea (or suggestion) that I came up with was that 10,000 years ago, before Ominous was who he is right now, he lived among a race of an unknown species. (this was before he was called Ominous, though I haven't thought of his original name, the species name, or design yet.) Some time ago, his species went into war with many other species in the world and beyond. (I also haven't thought of the war's name and cause yet.) After seeing the suffering of others through anger, hatred, greed, etc., Ominous tried to reason with them to stop, but they refused to listen to him. After seeing his family get caught in the war and died, he lost control and grew furious, killing others in the process until he realized what he was doing. After being horrified of what he had become, he grew a huge degree of self-hatred, and viewed himself as just as heartless and evil as the others in the war. So he decided to use the ancient object (I also haven't thought of that yet.) to get rid of all evil in existence for good. When it didn't work, Ominous had no other choice but to use it to destroy everything in existence, including himself. This, however, slowly corrupted him into a bitter and nihilistic being of dark energy. Horrified by this, the gods decided to seal him away to the Mystic Ruins forever, preventing everything from being destroyed.
I know that it may have some plot holes that I haven't ironed out yet and it may seem too long, complicated, and dark, but It's still a work in progress and I'd be happy to hear your opinion on it if you want. I hope you still like, though. Thanks
Hi Austin. Over at Depths of Dimensions/Part 2J (SR), people are considering removing you from the roleplay soon if you don't do anything there. I understand that you're busy and may not be able to respond to this, but if you can give us your input on this issue, that would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for the help!
Remember when, over at the Freijus Ceralnjir page, I was talking about this Quinn the Bat character who I wanted to add to Alchemia? Well, the version of her with her original backstory is now up. You can find her backstory (the part of it that would be modified if we wanted her to fit into Alchemia) as the first paragraph of this, and her general description page (which would also be modified if we wanted her to fit into Alchemia) on this page. Hopefully, that should help you figure out if Quinn would be able to be modified to work into Alchemia. Alternatively, I could create an alternate version of her to work into Alchemia, if you're intrigued by the general concept of the character, but it wouldn't work to have this exact version of her fit into Alchemia (if she wouldn't be able to have the same events happen in her life, have the same or similar beliefs, etc.) Anyway, whatever you wind up doing with this, I hope that this information will be helpful!
Hi, Austin. I came here to let you know that I changed my mind about joining Channel Mobius, as I believe I won’t be able to make time for it. With my own roleplay, a friend’s roleplay, a fanfiction, and a crapload of school, I won’t be able to have time for it. I’m sorry...:(
