I think in such an instant we have a character that is walking in two paths. His actions mark him as a force of good attempting to use his abilities for the betterment of others. However that very action taints his soul and marks him for the depths of Hell. I think a similar thing happens when a general gives orders that wins the war and saves millions of people but at the cost of a few dozen soldiers knowingly sent to their deaths. This is why in a comprehensive RPG Alignment isn't always useful. Alignment calls for a somewhat black and white view of things but life is grey.

A hero that uses Necromancy, for example, would definitely be the kind of character to push those boundaries. A hero hounded by Demons for a soul blackened by dark magic and doing good deeds to keep those dark forces at bay.

This is going to be a challenge the next time we roleplay a different campain. i always love necromancers, i tried to stay away from them cause people usually shun them and it might cause a problem if the wrong person notices what i am. im trying to up myself by becoming a better RPer. i want to be put in situations that i cant handle so i can force myself to the next level.

You want to be in situations that challenge you not situations you can't handle. I get into arguments with NoNo all the time because she thinks I put them in impossible situations but that's not my job. I challenge not immobilize. Its so hard to explain the difference to some people. As a GM I want you to succeed in the end. I just determine the level of difficulty needed to do so.

i feel its something i need , i dont want to be at "this level" anymore. i felt that with other roleplayers in our group im just the tag along. i want to be more of an asset to the team instead of that guy that was there. im reading alot more books for inspiration and in a sense a guide to what i want my character to be. Axel his destiny might be bigger than his fate but its his resolve that will carry him through.

I'm glad that you want to step up your game. I say think back to when we were playing Against the Giants with James. You spent a decent amount of time trying to achieve goals other than hitting a monster. What I say is create a background that encompasses some sort of goals and motivations for your character and whenever you are not sure what to do you look back at those things as a moral compass for your character.

always have an unattainable goal. Also have that same goal as a priority, all you want is that.

you tend to get bored. If you keep your toon fresh all the time you will remain interested.

This is also why Lem usually make you the leader.....hint, hint. grow bitch grow!!

Too narrow minded, something grander that you can put some time into. Gromwold wanted a grove and to bring worship of the Earth Mother to the masses. All of my work outside of adventuring was geared toward creating and tending mt grove or subverting the people's religion. Aim high and always be moving towards your goal.

My evil Mage character that sacrificed everyone With Sean, wanted an artifact for my god. The artifact was the eye of Vecner. Everything he did was geared to obtain it. The drow side quest...yes the eye.... sacrificing everyone...yes the eye.

He was obsessed.

Leetin McBeatin wanted to bring back the old gods, make his religion strong again.


Also sorry to hear about you impotence problem...haaa

You guys will need to establish your alignment soon. I have been negligent with that specific mechanic because ti doesn't exist in DQ. I need to know where you stand so that I can give more experience for proper roles played...(that should get people to pay attention, exp the currency of tabletop rpgs)

I would say Xavros is either Chaotic Neutral or Neutral Evil.

Juan was Lawful Neutral. Ryoku (even though its Rioku on the sheet) is True Neutral.

Dryden Cether Cos is Chaotic Neutral.

So Xavros and Cos are both Schitzo and don't know how to play with others... but plays with others. Welcome to the world of CN, mental deranged since the 1970's.

Well Cos got shunned for a good part of his childhood so he has a reason. I don't know about Xavrooosssesdd. It could be drugs when it comes to him.
