    Aquarius Solum surveyed its competitors.

    Its strategy was clear. Most of them would, eventually, require something to drink. And if it cut off all other sources, they would be at its mercy.

    In the distance, Aquarius spotted a well... Its first target. It carefully fell onto its side so that it would roll towards the well...

    We're getting overbooked, I guess I'll move up my plans of starting my own.

    Just a moment while I type up the intro.

    Don't worry, the water bottle may not be entirely serious.

    Nah, one Grand Battle at a time is enough for me. I just couldn't resist.

    Anyways, Intense Struggle is now open. If you don't make it into this game, resubmit your character there.

    Re: Pitched Combat [2 Remaining Spots]

    Like I said, I give preference to new people; Lap Otter has a reserved slot, Baphomet can join this one if he so chooses (and I'd like to see him do so, for the sake of having more first-time player), and Red and Starburst are approved.

    I'm really sorry to any of you I have to boot for new players (which I'll be doing randomly for the sake of fairness); I recommend you join Intense Struggle with the character you submitted here. Again, sorry.

    Re: Pitched Combat [Fullish; starting soon?]

    Okay, look, this is kind of cheating. I'm cheating here. If this is impermissible, I understand, but I think it might be interesting. Actually, on further contemplation, I have so little free time and another project that deserves it more. I'm out. I'll leave my entry up because it would feel like a waste of a lot of bits and bytes if I didn't, but I'll shove some spoiler tags on it and add an ending.

    Oh, Baph dropped out, for better or for worse. One more guy, then?

    Re: Pitched Combat [Fullish; starting soon?]

    Username: I'm never quite sure. Lap Otter or Lap_Otter or lap_otter or something like that.
    Name: Lainey
    Gender: Female
    Race: Shapeshifter
    Color: #00BF40 (fourth down, second from the left)
    Inventory: Zippered folder containing one mechanical pencil, several lead and eraser refills, a composition book, and loose notebook paper.
    Abilities: Lainey does not shift into any shape she likes. Each of her forms comes with a new name and a new personality. Some of these forms have sharp bits. Her Voices, muses, minds, personas have a quasi-physical existence in the Souzou, where they live as a community, trading Lainey's body between them as needed/desired. Each persona grew from a part of Lainey herself, yet each one is separate--they are a part of her and she is a part of them, but each individual is a discrete individual. When she changes, it is instantaneous and not always dictated by her.
    Description: Her "base" form is a young human female with no strength to speak of. She's short, skinny, dark-haired, and rather spotty, with no real distinguishing features. She is not particularly outgoing and there is nothing about her to be noticed, so she often blends into the background. She certainly does not appear threatening in this form, and in fact she is not. She's agreeable, friendly, gentle, and that's all you'll really see of her except through the various forms she takes.
    Biography: Lainey acquired her first additional personality, Yume, at age twelve. Her parents were overjoyed, since this (while not an unusual age) is a little long for a static child to remain static. Almost at the same time, Yume's twin sister Niko appeared. Over time, a small community--like a family, but closer--grew up in Lainey's head, each person representing some aspect of Lainey herself, and then growing beyond.

    Name: Yume
    Gender: Female
    Race: Catgirl
    Inventory: Nothing not already mentioned above.
    Abilities: Yume has two forms, each of which is still her; one is a quasi-human form, and the other is an ocelot. The ocelot form is a fighting form, which she does not inhabit often.
    (Physical) Description: Yume spends most of her in-body time in her human form; she finds that most humanoids find conversing with an ocelot unnerving, and anyway it's easier to speak with a mouth designed for the task. Over time the claws of her human form dulled and went away, leaving her only with fingernails; she is not a fighter and doesn't have much use for claws. Her human form is tall, with faint tabby patterns on her skin which, if you look close, is a thin layer of fur. The hair on her head is long and straight, left loose. She wears long, flowing robes in dark neutral colors.
    Biography(/Personality): Yume began as a personification of love. By the time she was fully formed, she also encompassed sadness, despair, death, and hope. She has a knack for understanding the emotions of others and can act as a peacemaker or mediator--often with Lissa's help. Despite having been betrayed and hurt, she still trusts easily and has not become bitter or jaded; pain is part of who she is and she accepts it uncomplainingly.

    Name: Niko
    Gender: Female
    Race: Catgirl
    Abilities: Niko also has two forms, each of which is still her; one is a quasi-human form, and the other is another ocelot, also a fighting form but one that Niko actually inhabits every now and then.
    (Physical) Description: There are not many differences between her and Yume--physically, anyway. Niko's hair is short, her clothes are functional and loose-fitting so she can fight if necessary, and she holds herself more stiffly. In shape, height, coloring, markings, they are identical.
    Biography(/Personality): Despite having been born/created/appeared after Yume, Niko is the elder sister. She is something of the opposite of Yume: she has never trusted outside the Souzou, so she has never been betrayed; she has never loved, so she has never been hurt. Yet she is bitter and jaded where Yume is not. Yume is the only one Niko loves, and she is very protective of her, sometimes ruining Yume's attempts at peacemaking with an angry outburst or even violence. Niko is anger, hate, violence, protection--a warrior and mercenary.

    Name: Lissa
    Gender: Female
    Race: Humanoid
    Abilities: Thinking. Logic. Scientific observation. Philosophy. Religious studies.
    (Physical) Description: Lissa is blonde and willowy, with pale skin and simple white clothing. Her features are perfectly symmetrical and exactly of the scientifically ideal proportions, which makes her look plain and uninteresting rather than beautiful.
    Biography(/Personality): Lissa doesn't spend much time inhabiting the corporeal body, and when she does it's usually alone time spent reading or studying. She was fully formed long before she was noticed by the others. She rules those things cerebral: science, logic, and learning, but also finds herself enamored with the arts and (her secret pleasure) fiction. Her impartial observations have several times helped Yume reach a successful conclusion to her mediation. Lissa's cool head and calm demeanor would make her a good diplomat if she could see the emotional side of things--which she can't.

    Lainey does acquire new personalities, and with them new forms, but they appear slowly and are rarely corporeal during their "birth." There are currently two (or maybe three) others in the process of being born. One is a child, of indeterminate gender; the other is a man. More than that, Lainey is not yet sure of (or at least, it's not public knowledge).

    Re: Pitched Combat [Fullish; starting soon?]

    i'm pretty sure you are supposed to have one person.
    MalkyTop got away with it cause his guys are fused.

    Re: Pitched Combat [Fullish; starting soon?]

    Lainey is one person. She's a shapeshifter, and each of her shapes has a new personality. They all exist in the same body. You'll only ever see one of them at a time. I thought I'd made that pretty obvious; do I need to go edit it to make it more so?

    Re: Pitched Combat [Fullish; starting soon?]

    Yeah, I thought you might be going for that, but it's not as clear as it could be. You might want to say, "Her prominent other personalities are..." or something like that.

    In general - if you have more than one character, they have to be "linked" somehow. There's a lot of flexibility to this rule, though - Lutherion was allowed an entire army, after all.

    Re: Pitched Combat [Fullish; starting soon?]

    I dunno, I figured Each of her forms comes with a new name and a new personality. was pretty clear.

    Or Lainey acquired her first additional personality, Yume, at age twelve.

    Or Lissa doesn't spend much time inhabiting the corporeal body, and when she does it's usually alone time spent reading or studying.

    Seems pretty obvious to me, but then again, I wrote it. I could be wrong.

    Re: Pitched Combat [Fullish; starting soon?]

    no, it was my mistake, read too fast.

    do old shape-shifters basically become legion? like 100 voices talking amongst each other?

    Unfortunately, only ONE OF US is going to be in this game.
