    ((Continuation here. OOC thread here.

    You'll have to make an account on the Starbound forums but it's still connected to whatever site hosts both. Case in point being my profile pic somehow loaded on Starbound Forums automatically which was nice.

    I hope to see you guys there!))

    Derika has been officially revived and renewed!

    Find it here: http://community.playstarbound.com/index.php?threads/derika-land-of-the-gifted.82460/

    After you make your Starbound account, post your app in the OOC section for it to be re-accepted. All characters will be reaccpeted so we can get some rebalancing done. You guys can use this opportunity to make the changes to your character you've always wanted, provided that the changes aren't too drastic.

    Once your app is accepted in the OOC, post the finalized version in the IC.

    Hope to see you soon! ^-^

    Gift: Trick House - user can access an alternate dimension via the surface of their body. Time is stopped within.

    I have been neglecting this RP and you guys waaaaay too much over the course of the year and I've been too stubborn to admit. But now, I'll finally take responsibility.

    I promote Ryik to the position of Co-Admin. I'm going to be even busier, especially over the upcoming weeks, with the APs and SATs and Prom all happening about the same time. But I promise you I will remain. I want to continue The Gifted and see where it goes. Derika is the fifth iteration, and has been the biggest and most successful yet. I plan on being around for number 6.


    The first version of the Gifted was hosted on Runescape forums, as was the second. It was then continued at MCF, and then remade when the owner stepped down and Zamot took over, creating the City of the Gifted. I took over for Zamot and created Derika, the Land of the Gifted.
    Edit: How fitting that this became a pageclaim...

    Thank you Ryik, that was exactly what we needed to keep moving.
    MCF is dying, the RP section is barely moving now. New threads never last longer than a month, and new people never join the forums anymore. We really haven't had someone join Derika and actually stay for a long long while now. If Derika had been getting a steady influx of new members over time, it'd be going just fine. But it hasn't, and so I believe it is necessary to move to a new forum.

    I'm feeling carsick so I'm not going to post right now.

    ((;_; I hate posting on my phone I just lost everything.))
    [Jake]

    "As far as I know, he has no weakness. I can't tell how he sees or hears, he feels no pain, and his "skeleton" is resistant to heat, cold, and force."
    Fabian's voice comes one over the headset, "He doesn't need to breathe either."
    Jake continues "We'll have to chip away at him until he's unable to move. And as you saw he seems to be able to teleport away at a moments notice, but ran at us to attack, implying he can't teleport toward us, or he is somehow limited and saves it for when he only needs to use it."
    Fabian cuts in. "Nariko, can you sense your skeletons? If you can, use them to comb the forest, it'll save us the trouble for looking for them. Jake, stay with Nariko and protect her. I'll take Christophe back to Vance for healing."

    Even before he finished speaking, wind gathered around the pained Christophe, lifting him high into the air and away toward the mountain, Fabian following closely behind.
    [Liam]

    Liam jumps and raises his arms instinctively before realizing it was just David. "Dude what happened to you?! You're kinda... Missing most of your arm. And face. And body. Did you just stand there and let them shoot you or something?"

    {Fabian}

    Cruising at around a hundred miles an hour, Fabian delivers Christophe to Vance in no time at all. Christophe is slowly lowered to the ground, dust and small rocks blowing off the side of the mountain by the wind pressure. "Vance, fix him up."

    [Lionel]

    As Lionel nears Gate 6, he notices Revi sleeping slumped against the wall. "Hey man, what are you doing? Our match is coming up soon." He leans over to gently shake Revi's shoulder.

    [Jake]
    "Fabian, David just ran into the forest at high speeds."
    Fabian responds immediately saying "That matches with the sounds Christophe heard. I'm changing course to support."

    {Fabian}

    He changes directions immediately, shifting the winds to send him flying over the forest. Fabian stops far above the treetops and closes his eyes, instead using the air below him to see. Fabian quickly takes notice of the violent air currents caused by a large figure moving at a high speed. However, Fabian realizes David'd target too late to prevent Christophe from being sliced in two.
    "Christophe is down but can still be saved. Jake, engage David while I retrieve the body. Vance, prepare to revive Christophe, he was bisected through the middle. I'll get his body to you soon."
    Jake appears at Fabian's location promptly, before disappearing soon after upon hearing the distant cracking of a tree falling. Fabian focuses air around Christophe's two severed halves, preventing any further bleeding and providing it a modicum of protection. He didn't want to risk tipping David off until Jake attacked him, so Fabian prepared to lift the corpse free from the ground and fly it to Vance.

    [Jake]

    I draw my shotgun and an automatic pistol as I fall toward the treetops. As I approach, I spot David standing behind the fallen tree, a massive blood splatter painted across it and many of the surrounding trees. I teleport behind a distant tree and take cover before opening fire on myself. I fire both shotgun barrels separately into my stomach before emptying the clip of my handgun into my chest. I teleport the bullets all around David, distributed at random angles and directions to make evasion more difficult. I don't waste time watching the results and instead teleport a fresh mag into my gun and palm a grenade, one with a near-instant fuse after I had "cooked" it.

    "Yes."
    Jake taps Vance's shoulder and teleports him atop the nearest bird. A moment after, Fabian's voice comes on over the headset.
    "Jake, report."
    "Sir. I assaulted the enemy with two bombs, outcome unclear, as I retreated moments after. I then set Vance atop a bird, to presumably aid in mobility."
    "Understood. I'll be at your location shortly."
    Fabian then asks Vance what he can see.

    [Hannah]

    Upon hearing the announcement, Hanna smiles and practically jumps out of her seat, using her Gift to bypass the crown of Derikans.
    I can't wait, this is going to be so much fun!
    I agree, but for different reasons...
    Whatever, let's just go wild and see what happens!
    See what happens? No, we are playing to win this, and don't even think about saying otherwise. I will win first place...
    Hanna hops off of her platform and makes her way down to preparation room 2, still arguing in her head with Annah the entire way.

    [Zack]

    "Ugh already? Everyone on my team is so weird... and late... and lazy, they never show up to train. I'll have to do everything for them and win this on my own..." Zack grumbles to himself as he pushes his way through the crowd and walks down to preparation room 2.

    [Jordan]

    Jordan glances distastefully at the crowd standing between himself and the awaiting preparation room on the other side of the stadium. He sighs and decides that a small mana expenditure couldn't hurt. "Tom, teleport me to the preparation room, and recharge back to full as soon as possible..." Jordan orders with a sigh. He appears at the preparation room immediately, his mana reserves unfortunately quite drained.

    [Lionel]

    He walks down to preparation room 6 and takes a seat.

    {Fabian}

    He continues to form illusions, and before long, a dozen Fabians have begun to spread out within the arena.

    ((A rare, illustrious, pageclaim is now a mine!))

    But what is happening?
    Annual Tournament.
    I get it's a hunger games sort of deal but how are the teams grouped up?
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AoTtUoHlXQc0dDhtMFdwbzlHbW5oOXN6NkhLQ2J5cXc&usp=drive_web#gid=0
    About how big is the arena?
    It was described by Dcat a page back IC. I'll hash out a more detailed description with her and post it in the main for reference. Not that you need to know it, the arena will be changing.
    Are we just trying to kill enemies?
    You are trying to win. Death does not necessarily constitute a win.
    Do we have special clothing?
    Whatever you want to wear.
    Will my characters just be with their teams?
    Your characters will be on their teams yes.
    Do teams have a way to communicate?
    In the arena? Only if they prepped something before hand. Team ETG and Tableflip do, but only because Team ETG has ETG-issue equipment and Jake gave some to his brother on Tableflip.
    I know it's a bit to ask but it's so I can play fair.
    Ask away, I don't mind.

    ((I've waited long enough haha, and now it finally begins.))
    ((I did recommend that Haley enter the suit. Well, it's still possible for Edonis to save her. ))

    [Jake]

    He nods in response, saying "I can make it." Jake reaches into the bag and withdraws

    Moments later, an announcement sounds throughout the Preparation rooms. "May the odds be never in your favor!"
    On the glass partition that everyone thought were doors but actually weren't, a large holographic 10 appears. The number counts down from 10 and when it hits 1, every participant is teleported onto the other side of the partition, their position relative to were they were in the preparation room.

    Before the timer even runs out, Jake activates 2 of his 10 explosives and sets them to detonate 2 seconds after the countdown ends. Each explosive was a 1 inch cube with merely a timer on one face. at exactly zero seconds, Jake teleports Vance on top of the mountain and then himself to the other side of the arena. Positioning the teleport to place him in the air so he can see better, Jake appears 100 feet in the air and 20 feet to the right of the enemy team. The moment Jake recognizes his opponents, he teleports the two cubes in the midst of the group. They detonate. The moment after detonation, Jake teleports to the top of the mountain to assist Vance in mounting a bird if he needed the assistance.

    (The cubes appear 6 feet off the ground, each one spaced about evenly between the five figures. Each creates an explosion with a 15 foot radius, and are most certainly lethal.)

    {Fabian}

    Fabian sets up an air wall around the team and focuses on creating his illusions, forming another every 10 seconds. As the illusions form, they leave the barrier and spread out into the arena.

    [Liam]

    Seconds after Liam enters the arena, a massive flash of heat and light envelopes him. Liam survives the blast virtually unharmed, with only his clothing damaged. Ugh, Jake happened. I didn't think he would attack this soon. Unable to see or breathe due to the dust and smoke, Liam both supplies himself with fresh air and clears the air around him with his Gift. As the air clears, Liam notices his shirt is gone and his shorts are in tatters. He speed changes clothes with his Gift and looks around for Jake.
