Wasn't it a wolf tail?


At first it was, but that was one thing I chose to change when retconing him. Besides, a fox/Kitsune tail is almost the same as a wolf tail.

Edit: Holy smokes, I didn't know that doing so would spark such discussion.

Stats completely reworked, including elemental resistances and status rates. Finally happy with them, I think.

Purequestion is incredibly capable offensively. His attack stat is sky high, and his magic damage is very good. He has a high enough speed to often go first, but is not impossible to outrun; at least, until he freezes you in your tracks with his time powers. His defenses are poor; His health is pathetic, and he has no magical defense whatsoever. However, his mastery of weapon combat (and thus knowledge of anything his opponents might be using) gives him considerable ability to block physical damage. His luck is mediocre at best.

But yes, that was the original plan, and it can still occur in a way. Some bizarre mix between SaGa and Live-A-Live.

Yes, that's exactly as insane as it sounds.

I know, it kinda sounds far-fatched, but then again, this IS a demon who pulled off the prank. Especially if the saying of his real name is the only thing which can reverse it. It could just as well be a curse put on him as a prank. But, if you have a better idea for why he can't say his real name (barring the fact that he can't remember it - that's not what I want the reason to be until maybe nearer to the endgame) then tell me it.

You know, not to be offensive or anything. But that character premise sounds like something I would have come up with 10 years ago.

When I was 10.

There is just that fowl air of mary sue following him. His entire motivation is summed up as "Goes around doing good", his reaction to being there is "not surprised".
His weapon, armor and accessories do not lend to any sort of realistic character, bur rather an author avatar. Which is good, in a sense that thats exactly what it should be, but bad, because its a terrible example of an original character.

As such Im taken aback by you trying to redeem it by giving long-winded backstory explanation which sounds like you expect everyone to suddenly understand what you mean exactly.
I think I will just say it here, as it's something you should understand and come to accept.

Your character is not special. Your entire mythology of that character is not special.

This is true for pretty much any fictional character made by anyone. In order to impress people with your character you have to damn earn that. Having a superpowered character with super-special powers be a heroic savoir and a dashing rogue will not net any of this, because you take those feats as granted.
A true character is well-rounded, has real issues instead of any sort of furry identity crisis, any conflict that would actually be expected of a real person.

Think about it. Think hard.

So skill decision.

The default way to learn skills will be as before, and most skills will be unique to the character. I'll simplify weapon skill leveling to only a single exp bar instead of three to keep things straightforward.

Stemming from this, however, if people want a unique spin on their skills, or way they learn skills, feel free to add it.

Already said in SB, but I'll say it here too.

I'd hesitate to have fists and clubs in the same category, since they're a totally different fighting style. OTOH, if you're committed to having 16 weapon categories, Glaives could probably be merged with Axes. Also, how do books even attack?
