The music in Battlefield 1 is beautiful. Especially the Russian civil war DLC, that music is haunting in such a gorgeous way. o.o

I love the orchestral melody that starts like halfway through this song, it reminds me of the original Battlefield theme but more peaceful.

Guild Recruiting / Re: Rp guilds?
« on: 06/05/18, 07:12:53 AM »
Imp-side there's the Dark Chorus, and that's about it tbh. As far as I know there aren't any other RP guilds which care about member quality and lore friendliness, there's just not enough people left.

There are still quite a few people dedicated to RP here tho! You can likely find at least one or two to do stuff with regardless of what you're interested in.

Yas, raptor friends are so adorable! Jurassic Park probably has the cutest raptors, but GW2 lets you pet them and feed them bugs which is also adorbs. And you can ride one! I think there's also another game that lets you mount guns on your raptor Safavid-style.

First time drawing without a reference pose (for the raptor), I think it actually went pretty well!



Desert Stygian


Raptors are a common type of carnivorous reptile-like creatures farmed and domesticated across the galaxy, primarily as mounts or hunting companions but also sometimes for their eggs. The average raptor has a good deal more strength and endurance than a camel or horse, allowing them to run for much greater periods of time without rest, though their bipedal nature somewhat limits their maximum speed and their predatory diet makes acquiring food somewhat more difficult.

Raptors show a large amount of physical diversity, with some species like the Ciemięzca or Yeş being almost insectoid in nature while others such as Sheikha raptors appear closer to dragons. The raptor pictured above is a Desert Stygian, widely known for their bony armoured carapaces and frilled neck.



Order of Wali Aaleyah
(الأختية من ولي العاليه)




The Order of Aaleyah, formerly known as the Order of the Emerald Oasis, is an exemplary Aegis of Valora sect. Aaleyah was a wali and a Celestian who once led the Order, known for being one of the few humans to befriend a living dragon. Aaleyah and her dragon became martyrs in the year 121 SK, sacrificing themselves to kill an extremely dangerous greater qarinah set on carving out her own empire in Dominion space. The sect was later renamed and a dragon's head was added to its insignia in her honour.

I've been experimenting with using multiple dyes/colours per outfit a lot more recently. This one (honour guard dye + black/red dye) is probably the best so far, but simpler stuff like black gloves with a white outfit is also quite good. And brown pants with any sort of civilian attire! I encourage people to try it if they want a more unique looking outfit!


Here is another, none of the colours are unified and the gloves are dyed black.




I've also been trying out some different Jedi styles, my current one actually uses Sith boots and Imperial gloves and it works quite well imo!

Captain Lyara Idros


Captain Lyara Idros is a Force Reconnaissance commando operating under the Republic SIS, as part of the 251st Special Recon Regiment.

Lyara tends to favour a more standard loadout than many other Special Forces troopers. She primarily wields an H-411 rifle, the Republic's standard infantry weapon, with SOPMOD kit including an ArmaTek scope and a high-power gas conversion enabler. She also carries a Merr-Sonn MX-2, a common shoulder-fired missile suitable for use against armour and low-flying starfighters.

I finally saw TLJ a few weeks ago and quite enjoyed it. The pacing wasn't awful like in TFA, and those space B-17s Resistance bombers were cool af. I'd have preferred to see upgraded Y-Wings, but anything with a ball turret is automatically badass, so what we got is fine.

Really enjoyed the throne room scene in particular, and the design of the throne room itself.

And I did the Praetorian Guard look six months before the sequel trilogy even started. Pay me, Disney. :P

Legionary-Corporal Iset Al-Fasi


Mantle Legions are extremely varied in customs, armour designs, and origins. The 43rd Legion shows off this heritage quite well, being one of the Dominion's oldest non-ceremonial military units at nearly 600 years old. They paint elaborate "flowing thorn" designs on their armour to commemorate Pious Sultana Aisha Inaam, a heroic queen who personally led the unit when it was created and wore similar designs on her platemail.

This is a good idea I think! I never know what to do myself, but I can offer up a wide variety of obsessively lore-friendly characters to use in other people's obsessively lore-friendly stories.

edit: except Zakuul things, if it involves Zakuul to any degree don't ask me lol.


Republic

Special Agent Serama Lirus: SIS spy and master of sass. Could work as a quest giver, a very well-informed contact, a tactical advisor, an arms dealer/quartermaster, or even a strike team member for any sort of pro-Republic spies, police officers, anti-Imperial rebels, and military strategists.

Master Qelian Saida: A Jedi diplomat. If anyone wants to do Jedi stuff that isn't related to fighting the Empire, she can certainly give missions to help out locals in various ways. Like training the militia on Tatooine or helping stop gang warfare on Coruscant.


Imperial

Darth Nefret: A spooky sorceress obsessed with force-sensitive artifacts and forbidden knowledge. Would definitely work as a sithy quest giver for anything involving evil power, or she could loan out some artifacts/knowledge to other characters if anyone happens to be in need of scary dreadful artifacts/knowledge for a story.

Moff Csa'lir'idi and Lieutenant Colonel Vasilla Alo: A Moff with a little bit of everything under her command and a Darth's favourite special forces officer. They could both give quests to military characters, help a Sith Lord with planning something big, or coordinate joint operations with other Moffs/Sith, among other things.

Captain Kiriaan Camille: A Medical Corps doctor. She could work as a medical vendor pretty much anything where a doctor might be helpful, primarily in a military context but elsewhere would work too! Especially treating wounded people, that is a very doctor thing.

Captain Kiriona Aki, Alonni Lumiere, and Lord Zamara: An ISF trooper and two Inquisitors. They can all act as strike team members, quest givers, etc in anything relating to traitors, heretical Sith, Jedi infiltrators, quarantined planets, or pretty much anything else where a Sithy police force would fit in.

"It's Occam's Shuriken! When the answer is elusive, never rule out ninjas!"

Midnight Sisterhood Agent


The secretive Midnight Sisterhood is generally described as the Dominion's secret police and intelligence agency. Their operatives conduct espionage, perform assassinations, silently gut impious souls, and feed information to other important groups or people within the Dominion. Their members are pragmatic and ruthless, favouring martial skill and acrobatics but never being above the use of dirty tricks.

Axis-pattern Stealth Pistol


Plasma weapons are usually a little bit softer on the ears compared to archaic ballistic weapons, but are still ear-piercingly loud in most cases. Any plasma weapon can be quieted through the use of a magnetic silencer, a long device which magnetically slows down plasma bolts to subsonic velocities. This slowing saps energy from the bolt, however, and can rarely drop the weapon's volume below ~80 decibels due to the inherent noisiness of what is literally magnetized fire.

Some pistols are designed specifically for stealthy operation. They generally fire their bolts at a subsonic velocity by default and generate a much more coherent magnetic field around each bolt. This can reduce noise levels even further, making the pistol nearly silent at the cost of increased power usage. These stealth pistols often mount more traditional suppressors as well, diverting excess gas and preventing the shooter from blinding herself in a dark room.

Cantina / Re: Roll Call - How active are you?
« on: 05/11/18, 08:35:17 AM »
I'd like to keep being active, but it feels pointless when I can't find any of the kind of RP that interests me. It seems like nobody is interested or able to help make some either. Heroics and such are nice to do on the side, RP is honestly the only reason for me to play an MMO though, and if it's sporadic at the very best of times then what's the point?

That's all it is for me. Nobody will tell me what's going on with drama so I have no idea about that, and i've just been ignoring all the story developments after Ziost both ICly and OOCly, so those don't play into it for me.

Kinda neat if Trant was actually in-game for once tho. I'm just going to continue assuming he's still alive, but I think the SIS is loosely organized (and underfunded) enough that there could reasonably be some IC confusion about his status.

Celestian Superior Farah Al-Dimashqi
(السماوية استراتيجي من الأرض فرح الدمشقي)


Farah Al-Dimashqi is one of the Dominion's most renowned warriors, currently sitting upon their Empyrean Council as the leader of the Aegis of Valora and a representative of Valoran beliefs. She is known for her usage of a beam halberd, a fairly unique weapon which mounts a heavy particle lance at the tip of a bladed polearm.

Jasmine Tookes is a good match for Ivahra Kinali, aka Darth Nefret.




Also Gal Gadot for Jedi Master Qelian Saida. Don't ask me how she looks that young after 30-something years of Jedi-ing.
