    Interesting we now have some Yoma's characters now. Also fixed up my special skill back on page 2. I hope it's exceptable now. Phantom Arrow is now pretty much an extension blade which produce a sonicboom that has knockback and/or momentary stun effect depending on opponent being hit.

    that might be quite interesting - will it be Yoma v.s Claymores or Claymores co-operating with Yoma - my character can do both, as long as he gets some profits

    I like the changes and explaination Kenjmg. Although, how long was the range? I was kinda confused and I thought I read 3 meters? If it is that then maybe you could extend the range a lot more. 3 meters is more of a mid range attack more than a long range attack.

    Also, don't be afraid to use different weapons, Claire has shown basic training with short daggers, so using different side arms (dagger, bow and arrow, cesti, polearm etc) aren't out of the question.

    Just keep it western, no katana's or other weird foreign weapons (although, I might be contradicting myself by suggesting cesti, but you get the idea).

    I was considering to play this but if claymores and awakened are the only then no thanks. Don't get me wrong claymores and awakened are cool but we need humans to be strong and defend themselves and not relly on claymores all the time seeing fist of the north star and playing mortal kombat inspired for such a human. Still cool idea
    Lol... Fist of northstar and mortal kombat is completely different. You should maybe try to make a group of you to open up Fist of northstar thread and make your own RP thread than playing a human here. Humans can be strong like Galk but nothing stronger than that making them infinitely inferior to Claymores and Awakened Beings. Its just how it is. I believe we can't change this

    It could change like in my fan fiction. You just have to think about it well enough( one of the changes is that really strong humans are not protected by the org law of no killing humans the claymores can do what they want with these types of human strong humans=bad for business as far as the org is concerned)

    For people like that...you'd be surprised what you can live through.

    One of the distinguishing traits of the organization is that they're not wholly evil, they're taking care of humans. No exceptions barring those who screw them over by not paying for the services they provide. So I don't think that modifying that rule would stay true to the claymore world.

    Sorry. Bit of a purist.

    Way I see it, for humans to match up against the average yoma or claymore is proficiency or combination in one of four things.

    1.) Possesses a skill that isn't reliant on yoma energy.
    2.) May depend on technology.
    3.) Extreme training.
    4.) Wits.

    An example of the first is, say, herbal lore. There's no such thing as nicotine sulfate in claymore because such a technical name doesn't fit the medieval/renaissance setting, but poisons that act like it under a different name could work ala deadly nightshade and stuff. Trouble would be describing how to extract it. (If I recall it right, it takes as little as 100 milligrams of nicotine sulfate to kill a human. And you only need to brush it against someone's skin.)

    Second is a little more tricky. Gunpowder is a no-no. But naptha--napalm--and phosphorous fires probably aren't. The Greeks had their fire, didn't they? Whose to say some idiotic human hasn't brewed stuff like that. And even if the enemy's a claymore with regenerative powers it's going to hurt being eaten alive by flames.

    Crossbows would fit too.

    Third would need rigid limits. Think of the soldiers who fought with Clare in the church and on the rooftops. The best and key advantage is somehow being able to surprise the opponent and land the critical first blow. They would obviously stand no chance against an awakened being.

    Last is wits. No need for explanation.

    I can't say luck, because that's completely in the way the dice is rolled. If the character's perpetually unlucky, though, and the player keeps tossing snake eyes...

    No elemental stuff. Stick to being human and what humans are good with: jobs.

    And Elcura, I'm fine with your character since its got a weird sort of logic. A character three-fourths yoma and one-fourth human. The human part is attached, not digested, so it works. My only gripe is for a darker past.

    btw Saikudoh I think you misunderstood me when I told you about that bone sword thing. Heres the pictures where I got the idea from.

    Remember how Duph pulls out iron bars like out of nothing? You could try a condensed version of it in that you can pull out a shoulder blade and use it as a weapon or have bones sticking out of your body like a porcupine etc.

    Theres some conflicting elements. Humans aren't that strong I know you want to be human but you have to take note the plot will start off with male awakened beings hunting. Male Claymores one by one have run amok and the organization is sending out their Claymores to slay these beings. I can to a degree understand if you made a human character that is barely on par with a regular yoma but the npcs we'll be faced off will be male awakened being class of creatures which are supposed to be stronger than a average awakened being. One of the biggest law a Claymore needs to abide by is the law of never harming a human being. Theres just no acception to this rule regardless of whether a human being is a trash or warrior actively seeking for a fight with a Claymore. Once they hit a human in a duel they're signing a death warrant. The fact that your a human means they cant touch you. But you wont stand a chance against a awakened being either. For the organization to life the law of not killing humans just strays too much from the series and I mean like by alot. While I chose the setting for the role play to take place in the past in order to be more versatile and allow creativity to take place amongst users I think straying too far will just mean it will no longer be Claymore but something else. You are free to play as a human but it won't be anything like from Fist of the North Star or Mortal Kombat (I'm highly skeptical about the connection you're trying to make with those two and Claymore and I question just how far have you read on Claymore).

    Eitherway, the end result is I don't mind you RPing a human character but remain as a human with human like powers that does not exceed the boundaries of your mortal capabilities. If you cross over this line and make Kamehameha possible I'm going to be very very displeased.

    I understand. But I don't want to use an idea too similar from something out of Naruto, so I wrote out the fusion thing. Seems it won't work unless the blade can be attached wherever there is a flesh wound. I'll just go with Ignition of Ankh since the concept's more related to Deimos' history and personality. (I believe he'll become a dragon-type monster if awakened.)

    Actually, I think it'd be more fun to play as a human. Tighter situations--life-and-death, basically--higher tension, fast pacing, and an excuse to mutter, "Oh crap" "Well, I had a good life" "Nuuuooo!" kind of lines.

    Just, yea, no spells or anything too cliche fantasy. But I guess you can say "kamehameha!" while firing a burning arrow from a longbow. For uber-lamer effect.

    One good thing about Claymore is that I've never heard anyone yell out their techniques. Others make the observation or point it out. EDIT: Well, they don't do it too often. :P Just realized the arrogant wench who dismissed Clarice during the mission up north said it aloud.

    We're not going to yell out "kamehameha" or "bankai" in this rp, are we...?

    Name: Cecily
    Gender: Female
    Rank: n/a
    Race: Claymore
    Type: Defensive
    Alignment: Good/Neutral

    Likes:
    Silk and velvet cloth, Street performances (dancing, juggling, card tricks, fire breathing)

    Dislikes:
    Interruptions, Smell of alcohol, Long-tongued yomas, Traveling alone

    Personality:
    Cecily has a sort of split personality. Normally Cecily has light and bubbly personality. She is open to her fellow claymores even if they are oblivious of her. She is childlike when it comes to street performances such as magic tricks and traveling jesters. When its time to take things serious she becomes a totally different person. Her speech pattern changes with a cold and unforgiving tone. Either way, she is a very cooperative team player and resourceful fighter.

    Symbol:


    Appearance:

    Take a guess where I got this... it fits my 80% of my criteria as to what my character looks like so I used it.

    Special Skills:
    "Masquerade"
    Cecily is capable of copying yoki signatures that are well within her capacity. She is capable of making her yoki near-flat to the point that her eyes turn to normal, as well as make it appear that she is a yoma. She uses this as deception as her aggressors can mistake her as a yoma or a helpless human within the vicinity.

    The skill is still strenuous to Cecily as she has not yet mastered it. She can maintain her false yoki for as long as 6 minutes and can be do it most three times a day before experiencing fatigue.

    She can still be detected by efficient yoki readers (Clare, any 'Eye'). She can't copy yoki signatures beyond her current limits, meaning she can't copy extremely high yoki patterns from superior ranked claymores as well as Awakened Ones as of the moment.

    "Blind Grace" - Subskill
    Being more efficient with handling small weapons especially daggers, Cecily employs a critical strike to her victim currently confused by her Masquerade.

    She has a habit of going for the eyes... literally blinding the victim.


    History:
    ~ Before becoming a Claymore ~
    Cecily's family and friends was a band of traveling performers. She was the youngest member of the group. Cecily was a knife gypsy in training, one who would juggle daggers while dancing to the rhythm of musical instutruments. The band would travel from place to place to brighten the spirits of the townsfolk, especially during these dark times.

    On their way to their next destination, the traveling performers ran into a caravan headed south to the next city. Being a friendly group of entertainers, the band decided to accompany the caravan on their way. One night, camping in the outskirts of a nearby town, the band was attacked by several caravan members who turned out to be yoma. To escape the ambush the band scattered from the campsite and into the woods, hoping that the yoma wouldn't be able to take them all. Unfortunately there were enough yoma to track down each member. One was assigned to follow Cecily and her father. After a while, Cecily's father placed his guard down, assuming they were no longer followed. Suddenly, Cecily's father chest blew up sending guts and all flying. The yoma was able to catch up to them. When the yoma was about to strike Cecily, its arm was suddenly cut off, and before the two was a claymore, with human intestines for a scarf. "I don't think using intestines for a scarf is a good idea," the claymore joked as she started cutting the monster into pieces. Shortly after the yoma was killed a man in black came to see what was happening. He too was covered with blood. "Now that you've gotten rid of the interruption, let's go back and continue discussing your next mission," said the man. "What do we do about the little girl?" asked the claymore. The man rubbed his chin. Cecily was shaking in fear while covering her ears. Screams could be heard throughout the woods. "It seems there are more," said the claymore. "...your mission is to find a caravan said to be carrying yoma with them, make sure you get to it after you rid of those. I'll take care of this lost child."

    ~ As a Claymore ~
    Cecily is a prodigy in controlling her own yoki. She was already capable of fluctuating her yoki during her first year as a claymore. However she ended up having bed rest for a week after her first try. She is known to be able to reduce her yoki to minute levels making her almost undetectable, even to the point that her eyes change back to their normal color. She is naturally nimble as she was training as a gypsy. Her sword skills are below average, this maybe due to the fact that a large claymore isn't the right blade to dance with. However, she is deadly-accurate when it comes to hurling daggers; hence the organization has allowed her to carry such weapons. She is also resourceful and will use practically anything as a weapon; from amputated limbs to broken glass.

    Misc:
    Aside from daggers, Cecily also carries a deck of cards which she uses to do magic tricks to entertain children in towns (assuming the parents of the children don't mind), but most of time she uses it to entertain herself during her free time.

    Cecily hums a song when it rains. She claims to have heard it hummed by someone during a rainy day.

    She has the childish habit of closing her ears when irritated during a conversation. This habit stuck to her ever since the yoma attack when she was young.
