    ((Not sure if I should point it out a second time. Is this going to be the norm?))


    Even while swimming Miles was able to keep track of the various people around the pool with relative ease, his casual pace giving him regular glimpses of others who came in and out, or otherwise lounged around. There were familiar faces scattered around with newcomers, or people he just didn't see on any kind of regular basis. Six months should have been more than enough time for him to memorize all of the other tenants, but as it turned out many just didn't leave their rooms very often and others, still, now had to take on a human guise where before they could be more free with their natural appearances. It must have bothered some of them; this new policy, letting humans in meant they were now less free to be themselves. Not really a concern for Miles, sure, but he couldn't deny it had been nice to be less cautious.


    With time passing by more and more people were showing up at the poolside; pretty soon it'd probably be as noisy as it usually was. Miles swam to the edge and picked himself out of the water, slicking back his dripping hair and taking a seat on the edge for a short break.

    ((Careful Ultra, you already broke one of Ally's rules. "No one-sentence posts."))


    With hours still to go until he had to even begin getting ready for work Miles, resident of the seventh floor of the Haven Complex, was determining what to do with his free time. He'd been awake for hours- well, no, that wasn't right. He'd been awake for years, being incapable of sleeping as he was, and had just finished the book he'd been reading for the better part of the night and morning. Checking his phone told him that nobody had contacted him or asked for any assistance, so he didn't have to deliberate for all that long before deciding what to do next.


    "Ain't been down to the pool for a couple weeks..." He mused, taking a moment to book his book back on the shelf before grabbing an already packed swim-bag from where it rested just inside the bathroom and headed out the door, making his way down the corridor to the elevators. There didn't seem to be many people out of their rooms, though that wasn't any kind of surprise; many of the inhabitants were nocturnal. Still, he shared a passing greeting with those he saw along the way, though the elevator ride down was made alone, and headed towards the back of the first floor where the pool's locker rooms were located. Miles slipped inside and swiftly changed into his swimming trunks, shoving his clothes and towel into a locker before making a beeline for the pool itself.


    It was more active down here than on the upper floors; the pool was always a popular activity for the residents here, or at least those who could make contact with water. Although having only been living in the complex for the last six months Miles had become quite used to seeing a variety of sights around the building, most notably here in the pool where it was near impossible to hide any additional appendages or unusual body parts; for those who couldn't shapeshift them away that is. Now though everyone swimming around or lounging by the poolside looked entirely normal, what with the complex's recent decision to allow ordinary folk inside many residents were now unable to swim at all, less a human walked in on them when they were using six arms to breaststroke.


    But that was enough thinking about that. Miles stretched a little, unnecessarily, before climbing onto one of the few diving boards and springing off of the end, performing a not-too-graceful dive into the deeper waters. The heated water was pleasant; though the chlorine stung his eyes a little it was a miniscule issue, and after doing nearly a full lap underwater he surfaced again, breathing deep for the sake of any onlookers. Fourty years of fake breathing had made him quite good at it, he thought. From there he started to swim some casual laps around the pool, relaxing for a while.

    That's... Not exactly informative, but great i guess?


    Anyways, Ally, when were you planning on starting this off?

    Its practicly something or a spell made into a rune and rune creation allows me to just create em it takes some time if theyre strong if theyre weak its easy. And the rest is just allowing me to use em. The manipulation allows me to move them around or enlarge them to make them into monoliths which i can use as turrets.


    Spells? So it's like... You can create a rune that does, basically, whatever you want it to do, as if it were some kind of magical spell? So making a rune that explodes into a fireball, or make a rune that projects barriers, or a rune that turns someone into something else? I'm just trying to get a general idea of what you mean, it's not exactly a common concept.

    Also, thanks Ally.

    I'm curious, what do all those rune powers involve? I imagine Ally will ask the same question, so what kind of stuff can "rune transformation", "rune casting", "rune summoning", "rune manipulation" and "rune creation" do? There isn't really any way anyone can tell what that stuff does, or what limits there are.

    Name: Miles Grayson.

    Age: 63, died at age 23 leaving him eternally young.

    Gender: Male.

    Species: Supernatural - Revenant. (Exceptionally rare Undead beings who, instead of being raised by another's magic or by blood, have raised THEMSELVES from death through nothing but their own indomitable willpower. This strength of will manifests itself as a bright core of energy that replaces the heart of the risen Revenant, and can be manipulated by the Revenant to perform a variety of deeds. Aside from this energy a Revenant is indistinguishable from an ordinary member of their race, but being Undead they do not need to eat, drink, breathe or sleep. Most, once risen, are driven by a singular desire that stems from life or the circumstances of their death; usually revenge, hate or fury. This drive consumes them and becomes all they are, fueling their will, and making them indiscriminate in their rampage to destroy the target of their drive. However a minority of Revenants, after rising, are not consumed by a drive, instead leaving them capable of mostly ordinary lives... Aside from being dead, of course.)

    Boyfriend / Girlfriend: None.

    Powers: Incredible superhuman strength. Extreme durability. Strong self-regeneration. Heightened reflexes. Exceptional willpower versus mental assaults. May channel the energy of his will into physical form, effectively allowing him to manifest weapons, tools or objects made from sheer willpower.

    Personality: To be roleplayed.

    Bio: Again, to be roleplayed. Has only been living in the Haven Complex for the last six months or so, however.

    Appearance: Miles has medium length black hair that he slicks back in the morning, allowing it to lose its form over the course of a day and gradually revert back to its standard, messy state, the process coming across as very natural and good looking. He is a conventionally attractive man, to keep things short, and he knows it. Good features, strong jaw, high cheekbones, the works. His eyes are bright blue that, upon close inspection, have a noticeable steel grey tint around the pupils. Around his jaw he has a light shadow of facial hair, kept neatly trimmed, and has a charming smile.

    Miles is quite tall, about 6'2" total, and has a medium build with a considerable physique that, while not the biggest or strongest, is definitely a beach body you could be proud of. His lightly tanned skin is marred by a few scars here and there, mostly hidden away under clothes but a couple stay on display, as minor as they are. A nick on the thumb of his left hand is a reminder of him almost losing the digit to a kitchen knife when he was a child, and a graze on the right side of his forehead is the only indication of a car crash he was in when he was sixteen.

    Miles has always had a taste for business casual outfits in day to day life. He likes slightly more formal clothing, and is usually found wearing button ups, dress shirts and the like. For now, he is wearing a rather smart white button down shirt with a black vest over the top, the last button at the bottom left undone. Along with this ensemble is a pair of black chinos, and a pair of black leather shoes. Slightly formal looking.

    Other: Works as a pianist for a local high-society club, and he's pretty damn good at it. However some high society brat keeps flinging gummybears into the open case. He's also recently become something of a handyman around the complex.

    Speaking of DEX, does it affect accuracy with all weapons or merely ranged/finesse ones? It'll be good to know since I'm going for a true brute.


    The character isn't the magical sort, so definitely a no to the rock stuff. I'll figure something out for his abilities, just tell me if they seem too strong/weak/whatever when I've made the character.

    Yes, couple of other things. First, what kind of limit is there on 'special items'? Because it seems UltraCraft has a significant number more than anybody else, and some of them seem especially valuable. 2HP per second passive recovery, for example? That seems more like a special ability than a magical item, and an incredibly powerful one that feels like it immunizes him to all damage. One round is presumably at least a few seconds, maybe 5-10, so that's a potential 10-20 HP restored between each round. Maybe that's just me picking holes at something that was probably settled ages ago, his character just appears to have a number of things that seem distinctly stronger than others.


    As for abilities, well, I know exactly what kind of character I'm building, I just need to figure out what I can give him. I'm effectively going for a low intelligence, somewhat clumsy brick-hit-house. Effectively a tank who hits like a truck. WITH HIS FISTS! Suggestions to turn him into a true glutton for punishment, ability-wise, are welcomed.

    I'm... Actually really interested in this, but can I just ask if I'm missing anything before I throw up a character? I'm not entirely sure what's "good" when referring to the damage of, say, a weapon or ability. If a human's average HP is 84, the axe that does 3D6 would do, at most, 18 damage. That feels pretty negligible from a big axe hitting an unarmored human.


    Although, maybe I'm missing other factors that aren't mentioned. I'm just a little confused as to where all the numbers are going, plus there's mention of gold and I have no idea what's a suitable amount to start off with, or what it can really be spent on. Maybe I'm looking a bit too deeply into it, I just feel like I've missed some conversations or something.

    Okay; another question; How strong and agile is 'inhumanly strong and agile'?


    Let me see if I can break this down...

    For a start, 'inhumanly strong and agile' obviously means beyond human level. That's clear. How MUCH stronger and more agile is the question, but it's hard to answer because it's difficult to give exact statistics for something like this. Any kind of strength or agility based task the best human in the world has performed, you can do. I.E: Run faster than the world record holder, lift more than the top weightlifter, etc.

    The physical strength of the Unchained is roughly equivalent to the strength of the Warrior, but the Unchained is faster where the Warrior is more durable. The strength and durability of the Berserker is beyond either the Warrior or the Unchained, while the speed/agility of the Abyss Walker is beyond even the Unchained. Since these are the four boxes I listed physical attributes for I'll be using them in comparison with one another.

    As the 'lowest strength' of the strength boosted boxes, both the Unchained and the Warrior set a precedent. They can perform feats of superhuman strength, but the Berserker can perform far greater feats of physical strength. I would say that the Unchained and the Warrior could lift a standard five seater car relatively easily, then, say, throw it through the window of the building across the street. Agility-wise you are certainly not the Flash or anything similar, at an assumption I would say at full tilt you could perhaps manage 60MPH, but that is a dead sprint. In regards to quick movements and the like I can't think of a precedent. All in all, I'm mostly willing to leave the extent of your capabilities up to you, so long as you don't claim to be able to do something the stronger/faster box could not do.

    Admittedly these are just estimates based on my thoughts at the moment, so it may not necessarrily be set in stone.
