Player - [Silverbullet]
Name - Byron "Ballast" Boursair
Race - Human
Sub-race - Rysallean
Class- Shaman
Allegiance - Pirate
Appearance - Tall and lean, yet muscles spider around his body like thick vines. Due to an unfortunate spellcasting incident, he's now bald. He has a small scar where an arrow whizzed past his head during his youth, located over his right eye. His eyes are of a deep forest green. Has also grown a small goatie (about an inch long) that he ties in a braid, to uphold the old pirate tradition. A few vine-shaped tattoos climb around his right bicep. He also has a hawk with spread wings tattooed between his shoulderblades. Shaman glyphs can also be found around his body, if someone were to look. Like the rest of his old pirating crew, he never wears a shirt, preferring to feel the sea-winds blow across his chest. He wears a pair of green pants that he sometimes rolls up into shorts, and prefers to walk around barefoot on his ship. Needless to say, he has more than one scar on his body. He wears two Kukri knives at his belt, always near, cause you never know when they'll be needed.
Age - 26
Personality - Byron is a born leader, knowing when to take control and be tough, and also when to be a friend. Byron follows a sometimes-strange code of conduct, but will always put duty over pleasure. He has an ever-present sense of honor, which is also why he wouldn't stoop to stealing or sabotaging while in port (once out at sea was another story, though) during his pirating days. This doesn't mean he doesn't like a good laugh, though. Whenever the crew gathered around supper with Eve (their resident hooker) dancing her number in the center, Byron would be among them, sharing the cheer and often joining in on the dance too. Back in the day, the pirate could easily be cowed by threats, but he's overcome the handicap and now is prone to jump into conflict as readily as any other hardened fighter, sometimes even more so. Byron's sense of duty has always struggled against his huge urge to explore and his enormous curiosity... which can sometimes result with him naming 'pleasure' as 'duty'.
History - Byron grew up as any other Rysallean would, being taught about nature and even taking part in gardening at a young age. He made friends with Enu (a Tiger-brother from his old crew) at the age of 7, often running around the forest, trying to catch Enu's brother, Kato, offguard. Byron had a younger sister who never seemed to stay in one place for long. However much he and the Tiger-brothers tried to track her down, as it was considered a game for them, she always seemed to be one step ahead.
By this time, their freedom had grown to the point where he and the Brothers could leave home for weeks without their parents worrying too much. They used these weeks to go exploring. One of their explorations brought them to a secluded bay, where they found an old Byblos ship that had crashed against some rocks. The ship was in bad shape, but they took on the ambitious task of repairing it in the hopes of some day sailing away to explore even further. The project lasted a couple years, as they had to both make enough money for the materials and also bring the materials to the ship, which was no easy task. Am'ttai (an old Eolan) was at the lumber market one day when he overheard the overzealous teenagers talking about their project. Curious, and also more than a bit skeptic, Am'ttai decided to ask Byron to show him the boat, which Byron gladly did, after asking to touch one of Am'ttai's wings... Am'ttai, who had originally accepted to help the younglings because he had foreseen profit, eventually got close to Byron and the Brothers and became more involved, becoming the treasurer of the little band and making sure they paid the right price and got the right things. Needless to say, word slowly spread about our four friends' task, which attracted the curious. The first of these was Eve, a young rysallean beauty, who offered to keep the workplace cheery with her dancing if they promised to take her along once they sailed away. She was tired of living in the same place all the time, not to mention that she rather liked Byron. Work on the ship was going very well, yet they soon realised they'd need more help once they needed to put up the mast. It wasn't very long after they'd realised that that Soren and Oba poped their curious heads into an oarhole to have a closer look. Soren, a rather lean lochmorian, was immediately drawn in by his attraction to Eve, and Oba, a panther and slightly older than the others, eventually broke down under Soren's neverending nagging and joined the group.
Everyone had been sailing for some time, getting into bar fights, delivering cargo or passengers to make money and any other anecdotes you can think of. Kei'ria, a Hydran, was among one of those passengers when Byron's ship got boarded by enemy pirates. The crew fought the pirates off, but sustained numerous injuries while doing so. Kei'ria offered to help afterwards, by healing everyone. Byron then asked if he'd care to sail around with them for a while, as a healer always came in handy. Years followed Kei'ria's integration to the crew, and things were finally starting to warm up between him and the others when disaster befell them all. Byron doesn't talk about the event, nor what followed, but short time passed before he was thrust into the Arena.
Weapon of Choice - Two Kukri Knifes that his father had given to him when he first started exploring. Even though years of wear and tear have left their mark on the knives, they're still as sharp as the day he got them.
Others - Although he isn't with his crew anymore, his crew is always with Byron.
Ze Azure, Byron's old ship, was always kept clean. Some legends about Ze Azure involve Byron running along with his Kukri knife in one hand, and a kerchief in the other, wiping up the blood of the foes he (or anyone else) killed seconds earlier, while he battled.

2006-08-15 [Silverbullet]: oi, i've just noticed that the whip byron won from ometla isn't in his inventory yet *pout*
Also, the number of battles fought/won hasn't been updated, nor has his score..

2006-08-25 [Silverbullet]: ...And the modifiers his Tribal necklace give him aren't in effect either! Durh, you've been lazy! XD
Could you maybe set Byron's stats/equipment in order? Or maybe just give me the password and I'll do it myself ^______^

2006-08-25 [Duredhel]: The modifiers are there... -_-'
I'll put the whip in now.

2006-08-25 [Silverbullet]: ..that means Byron started with 4 car? Oo

2006-08-25 [Duredhel]: No you dumbass XD, those are your base stats, they don't change with your equipment, the modifiers are in parenthesis next to the equipment.

2006-08-25 [Silverbullet]: X'D
Ha.... makes sense enough ^^"
Just that i've been seeing base stats with parenthesis next to the stat where the gm add what equipment did what. So Byron here would have had Car 5(6/5) and Dex 6(8/6) or something. That's why i was confused and pestered you ^^'
My appologies, Great One.. and thanks ^_________^

2006-08-25 [Duredhel]: Ah, that happens when the base stats are temporarilly increased by a spell or something like that.

2006-08-25 [Silverbullet]: aaaaaaah, i get ^^

But that would mean that Byron is indeed faster than Ometla? Provided that she doesn't use her lightning speed skill during the race.. Byron: 6+2 Dex vs Ometla: 6-1 dex.. right?

2006-08-25 [Duredhel]: Yah

2006-08-25 [Silverbullet]: Huh.. and even if she does use her lightning speed, Byron is still faster XD
Funny how someone slower than him can (hopefully) teach him to be faster ^^

2006-08-26 [Silverbullet]: Huh, just like that? Lightning speed is mine? All mine? ^_____^
WHOO! Thanks!

.....Now for the nitpicking, kinda ^^'
I never paid any attention, but I'm going to have to change Byron's bio a bit, aye? He's no longer on a ship with his crew... or does it not really matter in the arena?

2006-08-28 [Silverbullet]: Eh Durh, does the special skill to create a glyph cost anything?

2006-08-28 [Duredhel]: Nope, but ye can't use it till you get to Lv5

2006-08-28 [Silverbullet]: got it ^^

2006-09-23 [Silverbullet]: Once Ol' Byron gets his level, will he still keep his 175 Exp?

2006-09-26 [Silverbullet]: Whohoo!

..wouldn't his stats go up too though?

2006-09-26 [Duredhel]: check you messages XD

2006-09-26 [Silverbullet]: ...hadn't gotten to that yet ^^"

2006-09-30 [Duredhel]: Oi.. now that I think about it, how did Byron get all those skills if he's only Lv 2?

2006-09-30 [Silverbullet]: well.. um. Let's see.. ^^'
Lightning speed he learned from Ometla. Handle kukri knife and claws were originally there (though staff instead of knife, we exchanged those two). Hadle bows is from him being rysallis. Glyph writing is from being a shaman and those two glyphs of his are from the skillpoints he used up when he leveled up to Lv2. ^____________________^

2006-09-30 [Duredhel]: AH ok, all I wanted to know ^^

2006-09-30 [Silverbullet]: haha, goodthing i keep track of what's happening with my chars :P

2006-09-30 [Duredhel]: Yup ^^ yer actually a darn good player... who would've guessed? XD

2006-09-30 [Silverbullet]: Whee!

2006-10-05 [Silverbullet]: Just a question, when will that rice get through Byron's belly and give him some hp back? ^^

2006-10-10 [Silverbullet]: muneh!! ^^

2006-10-22 [Silverbullet]: Eh! Seeing as Elyse (party7) is a leader, wouldn't Byron get a leader badge (seeing as he's my only RoLA character)? ^______^

2007-05-29 [Blood Raven]: why is he still at 10 HP? That's impossible at 3rd level...

2007-05-29 [Silverbullet]: ...... >_>

Hell if I know. I've never touched his stats, so it's not my fault XD

2007-05-29 [Blood Raven]: fixed it for ya

2007-07-02 [Silverbullet]: Why his MP at 6? Oo
Doesn't Wind Slash only take 5 MP?

2007-07-03 [Sturmi]: you're right, sorry >_<

2007-07-03 [Silverbullet]: Hehe, no harm done ^___^
Just that I had all of Byron's Mp planned out, so seeing it down at 6 made me go "uh-oh" :P

2007-09-22 [Silverbullet]: might want to add those necklaces too :P

2007-09-22 [Sturmi]: shoot I had forgotten about them already lol

2007-09-22 [Silverbullet]: Haha, that wouldn't be fun. Byron gets back to Emilia.
Byron: Here ye be going! *hands needle over*
Emilia: I asked for necklaces!
Byron: Arr... Doh!

2007-09-22 [Sturmi]: Lol XD

2007-10-05 [Silverbullet]: C.C. would be 35 too, yes? <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

2007-10-05 [Sturmi]: would be 42, actually...

2007-10-05 [Silverbullet]: .... >_>
Where has my math gone to?! T_T

And now to find how to spend the rest of mah money!

2007-10-05 [Sturmi]: did you pay Rizzo already or not?

2007-10-05 [Silverbullet]: Yep, you just deduced the money, when you changed the stat.
Otherwise I wouldn't have had enough money :D

2007-10-05 [Sturmi]: yeah that's why I was asking...

2007-10-05 [Silverbullet]: hehe, indeed ^^
Rest assured, I checked he had enough before buying the training.

...which makes you wonder what to do to people who don't have the money, but have already been trained? Do we break their kneecaps? :D

2007-10-05 [Sturmi]: I should have asked before, right?
well I'd give the dude a job to pay for it, like when you go to a restaurant, eat and don't pay, you end up washing dishes...

2007-10-05 [Silverbullet]: Yup yup, sounds good.

Of course, our players are (for the most part) honest, so that wouldn't happen. And, I usually check if a character can pay before I give the training/stuff ^____^

2007-10-05 [Sturmi]: yeah I saw you had more than 400 gp, but I didn't know if you had paid Rizzo already or you were going to pay him later

2007-10-05 [Silverbullet]: Hmm, well in the RP, he paid first, but you deducted the money after.. No trouble either way ^___^

2007-10-11 [Sturmi]: How much MP must I add? half the MAG stat?

2007-10-11 [Silverbullet]: ...I'd guess. I think this is the first time someone brings up their mag stat by training.. Go with your instinct ^_____^

2007-10-11 [Veltzeh]: If someone ups their MAG, MP doesn't increase. MP can only increase when leveling.

2007-10-11 [Silverbullet]: Ah... phuck.

2007-10-11 [Sturmi]: But it says that "Warrior classes gain MP whenever they increase their Magic stat". Shaman wouldn't be a warrior class... but this puzzled me a bit.

2007-10-11 [Silverbullet]: Maybe there's a loophole for warrior classes then...
But warriors probabl won't be paying for mag training anyways..

2007-10-12 [Veltzeh]: It still only happens when they level up, I'm thinking.

2007-10-19 [Blood Raven]: With warriors, it only happens as they increase their stat, because they can't increase their MAG stat by levelling. From support and mage, it only goes up when levelling.

2007-10-19 [Veltzeh]: They can increase MAG when leveling. Usually that's a racial thing. It can't rise when not leveling as far as I understand.

2007-10-22 [Blood Raven]: I do remember reading warriors can raise their MP by upping their MAG. Otherwise, there's no way a Warrior class can increase their MP, which would be mean, because Knights want to be able to cast White spells occasionally, as well.

2007-10-22 [Veltzeh]: There is a way, and that is by increasing MAG as a racial stat, as I just said. :P In any case, we need to make that clearer in the rules, whichever way it is... Also, some melee classes do have MAG as an option for increasing.

2007-10-22 [Duredhel]: Any time a warrior increases his base MAG stat, his MP increases.

2007-10-22 [Veltzeh]: Only for men, apparently. :P

2007-10-22 [Silverbullet]: Remind me why we're talking about warrior classes here? Byron's a shaman, thus mage :P

2007-10-22 [Duredhel]: Yep, only for men, now go play Kil'rei and Y'meana.

2007-10-22 [Silverbullet]: Aye aye!

2007-11-11 [Silverbullet]: Oh, is byron going to get some XP? ^_____^

2007-11-11 [Sturmi]: that's what I was thinking to do now.

2007-11-11 [Silverbullet]: Haha, thanks ^_^

2007-11-18 [Leonox]: typo on strength glyph

2007-11-18 [Silverbullet]: Hmm, thanks ^^

2008-08-01 [Sturmi]: awesome drawing!

2008-08-01 [Silverbullet]: <img:stuff/yurispirateemotionarr.png>
Arr, he be a handsome lad, ain't he? XD

2008-08-04 [Sturmi]: aye. Baldness suits him, lol

2008-08-06 [Silverbullet]: <img:44166_1164144892.gif>
I say thanks, cause that's my head I used as reference XD

2008-08-06 [Sturmi]: you've a handsome head XD

2008-08-06 [Silverbullet]: X"D
And now to work on the body! Only a couple more crunches and I'll be where he's at, for sure!

2008-08-08 [Lepellier]: I like it, SB. I think the dumbfounded quizical look on his face fits him very well!
