    For years the countires of Kortuganor and Rurikan have fought against each other bitterly. Neither side gaining any advantage over the other. Recent;y bot side have begun using magic, yet neither is using it properly, destroying innocent villages and ravaging entire neutral countrysides. In their folly they have even turned to necromancy. You are all part of an age old order known as The Crusadres of The Open Palm, a strict military operation. The Crusades of the Open Palm have been approached by three seperate advocates at different times, all in secret. One from Kortuganor seeking help to demolish Rurikan, or at least give them the edge. Another from Rurikan seeking your assistance to disable key points in the Kortuganor Empire. The last comes from the neutral surrounding areas, just looking for an end to the war, with as little destruction as possible. You commanding officer, a temorary specialist recruited for this mission, known only to you as May. Shes not the toughest commander around, but she knows undead like the tips of her wings and the back of her hand. Once she finishes gathering up her squad, she moves out. Shes allowing the desision of which group to assist up to the majority of her squad.


    I'll wait until 5 more join, after that, you cannot join until after we return to a semi-permanent base of the side we are fighting for, or a town of the neutral side.

    my character is as follows:
    Name: May

    Weapons:
    The Holy Avenger (extremely powerful Holy longsword)

    Equipment:
    Several small trinkets and the symbol of The Crusaders of the Open Palm

    Abilities:
    Undead Turning: can strike fear in undead, also can destroy (one hit KO), except its a bit harder

    Detect Undead: uh, the can detect Undead within a mile to their exact location

    Divine Soul: If she dies, she cannot be raised through necromancy, only a pure soul with good intentions can bring her back, and only with her permission

    Holy Weapon: grants Holy energies to her weapon, hits better and harder (stacks with bonuses already on weapon) (unlimited)

    Holy Touch: Any touch by the Avenger (or if the undead strikes the avenger) causes light damage as if Holy Water were thrown on the undead. Also, the touch of the avenger can be used as a laying on of hands to heal damage on allies. This is a supernatural ability. (unlimited or 5/day)

    Holy Countenance: The Avenger may spend one round praying to activate this ability which only works against undead. The Holy Avenger gets a bonus against all undead and necromatic spells. Lesser undead are automatically turned if they reach within 10 feet. Greater undead are not affected but become much slower and weaker. If they come into contact with the Avenger, they must make the same save or suffer heavy damage. (3/day)

    Holy Purity: Any special attacks made by evil or undead creatures, such as Level Drain or Mind Control automatically fail

    Angelic touch: Has a wide range of effects
    Fear the Reaper: Gives large bonuses against undead
    All divine spells

    Ultimate: Divine Intervention: Her God acts through her directly, she gains a huge bonus damage, damage reduction, and resistances. She basically becomes the ultimate fighting machine, most Divine spells become at will (no casting time or spell use). The only downside is that she is left in a comatose state for 24 hours afterwards and remembers nothing of the entire battle.

    Appearance: Tall slender female with (odd for a heavenly being) dark brown hair. Her hair is lined with small diamonds, as are her wings. Usually wears a pure white dress that comes down to about her knees, usually has her hair in a ponytail.


    Does The Art burn within YOU?

    I'll let you choose:

    Lunaster or Ryu

    ~EDIT~

    Due to popular demand: I will choose Ryu. He has, by this time, regained his emotions and has full(er) control over the Shadowhawk Wings (up to 4--five if he's lucky--wings).

    History Regarding:

    Thanks to...various reasons, May recruited Ryu to aid her. She believes his excellent judge of character may come in handy, and he is a free knight.

    Name: Hero

    Weapons: Splice, a powerfull black sword of some sort made of foreign metal. Its origin is unkown.
    a Splice Stick, a small needle-like attachment to splice that, when fused with splice, makes it a ranged weapon of lesser power.


    Equipment: Splice Stick, Sapling (An attachment to splice, that when fused, creates a black gooey unbreakable substance that coats the users body. Greatly reduces speed, accuracy and mobility.)


    Abilities:
    Tap: Taps into the inner power of the darkness of Hero's heart, or the pureness of his soul. Both are nearly two people, both are just as mysterious



    A tactical expert, Hero, as he is called, joined the war out of no where, and was soon recruited for the cruesades. His militant genious is uncanny, though most dont know it. He does not talk, and keeps to himself. His large black shiney metal weapon is of a forgein technology, powered by his blood lust and hunger. It is a sword of powers very few can control, and when fueled by the darkest of hearts, or purests of souls, it becomes a weapon capable of almost anything

    ooc: I'll be starting now, but we won't be leaving Teh Crusader's home base,... yet

    BOT:
    *The three of you are waiting in the barracks as a stunning female Angel walks into the room, the light coming from the windows gelaming off the diamonds that line her hair and wings*

    May: I am May, I will be your Commander for this mission. The Crusaders of the Open Palm have recruited me for a special mission, and I in turn have recruited Ryu. You are the first three that have the honor of joining me in battle. TCotOP have been approached by advocates from an Empire known as Kortuganor, a country known as Rurikan, and the neutral surrounding area that has banded together to stop this war, which is ravaging their lands. I'll leave the decision of who we go to, to give aid. You have until I can round up the at least two more members for our squad. If you need anything, go to the armoury and tell them that I sent you.

    [color=royal blue]Ryu remains to sit in silence, watching as Hero and [punk's character] get up. He watches as May walks to the door. He then gets up and walks to her. They begin to converse quitely.

    Ryu: I don't like this.
    May: I heard. What is your opinion?
    Ryu: I believe the nuetral lands require the most aid. The other two... I don't trust them.
    May: I see. And of those we've gathered?
    Ryu: I've worked with both. I trust them.[/color]

    *May walks around the rather large facility, talking to several officals, and going in and out of the Elder's Hall quite a few times. She eventually makes her way to the Armoury, seeing The Dwarf, and the smith reforging his weapons and armor to be be stronger, adding a slight magical quality to them, which has a anti-trigger which will deactivate the magical properties once TCotOP have no more need for him.*

    May: *to The Dwarf* Ah, I see you've heeded my advice and have come to our Armoury. *to smithy* I'm going to need a few special items, recent events have changed the situation a bit.

    *May hands the smithy a long list and walks out*

    *the dwarf grabs the breast plate, puts it on, and begins swinging at the air with the sharpened blade, and soon after wanders back to hero*

    OOC: Or just ask me. I say yes. And, punk, what's your character's name?
    BOT:

    [color=royal blue]Krislimith is seen wandering around by Ryu. He recognizes him, of course.

    Ryu: Ah! Krislimith! Well met, friend.
    Krislimith: Well met... You seem different from last we met.
    Ryu: Well, I was able to...reaquire my emotions.
    Krislimith: Ah! I remember! You seemed so cold. Wasn't Tri...
    Ryu: Ssh! Yes. He was with us.
    Krislimith: What are you trying to hide?
    Ryu: Must I forbid you to mention...that Guardian?
    Krislimith: You would?!
    Ryu: Only in this case. Please, it's only a favor.
    Krislimith: Very well. Who am I working with, this time?
    Ryu: An angel named May is our leader. There's a warrior named Hero here as well.[/color]

    [color=royal blue]Reyan: Uh? Hello.
    Krislimith: Where'd you come from?!
    Ryu: *turning around* He simply used the door. Though... I don't recognize you.
    Reyan: You can call me Reyan. I am a swordsman.
    Ryu: *seeing his sword* I see. Well then, perhaps we should go to the armory. There are some things we may want to pick up. *using psyonics* Well, May, we have two more guests.
    May: *responding with her mind* Recognize any?
    Ryu: *psyonics* Only Krislimith. Both will be of help. Reyan is the other. A swordsman with a strong aura.
    May: *responding with her mind* Good.
    Reyan: Why so silent all of a sudden?
    Ryu: No reason. Let's get going.[/color]

    And so hero, after smoking his cig dry, walks into the armory, where he hands the smith a small piece of paper with words etched on it in blood. With a look of disgust he starts to scream at hero, "NO! I WILL NOT DO THIS! GET OUT NOW! BEFORE I DO SOMETHING YOU'LL REGRET YOU DEVIL! YOUR A BLOODY DEVIL!"

    And so hero crumples his note up, puts his hands in pockets and walks out. His eyes flare a deep red as he walks out.

    He walks up to may, and holds Splice out at her. It morphs and mutates into a small head on the hilt, which screeches in an almost devilish tone: When do we leave, the master asks! Answer now mortal...

    May, a little startled: When i say so... (while trying to concentrate on an identification spell on the strange foreign sword) What are you!!

    Splice talks no more, and morphs back into a sword. Unable to find out what this man or his weapon was, May gives up and goes back to her duties.

    *May returns to the barracks, seeing that not everyone is assembled, she has Ryu reach out to the rest of the squad with Psionics. As they all assemble she stands at the end of the long hall that makes up the barracks.*

    May: Now! I have assembled you all here for one reason! We are to move out in five minutes! Gather your things and decide who it is we are aiding. I will return.

    *May leaves off towards the Armoury to recieve the items she requested*

    *the dwarf yells jokingly back at may*

    the dwarf: all my gear is right here can we go now!?

    *the dwarf puts down his hammer, pulls out his sword and begins swordfighting the air, swishing it back and forth ignoring everyone around him. but soon turns around impatiently*

    the dwarf: aye you damn bastards! ive been sitting here waiting for this adventure for some time now, what the hell are we all standing around for!

    *the dwarf picks up his hammer and slams it into one of the walls impatiently, jolting the whole room slightly.*
