WiP Characters / Re: Emile Antiqua

Well in his combat behaviour you have fast characters being able to get around his Emile's wide swings as a weakness So if he doesn't have/usually use wide swings then there isn't really a point to that passage

If I misread something I apologise.

Some points are fully appreciated and will make edits on.

Others are unjustified; nowhere have I written that Emile struggles to use his blade, nor have I said that he solely uses wide swings. Unless I am missing some line which does say so in which case please enlighten me as to where it says so.

Otherwise the remaining points will be changed.

[EDIT]: Added negatives to Emile's height, modified his story to make it more realistic per your suggestion, added further description to Semblance.

(This is as a user, not a mod so do or not do at your leisure)

7í9 is getting into giantism territory which has a whole host of health negatives attached to it. If you really want to keep it keep it but it is likely to raise eyebrows.

Bullies being turned around through banter is a little silly, not terribly relevant to the story but it would make more sense if Emile formed a close bond with other people which no longer made him a tempting target.

You should describe what the counter-attack looks like.

To be blunt if Emileís combat style consists solely of big broad swings Iím surprised he has lived this long. Pommel strikes and half-swording are incredibly important aspects of the art of two-handed swords and it doesnít really make sense for Emile to ignore them.

Also if Emile visibly struggles wielding the sword in its base form removing the counterweight isnít going to trick anyone into thinking he is more dangerous duel wielding.

1v1 Matches / Re: First Year 1v1 bracket- Round 1: Samantha Quartz vs. Camelia Sol

There was a slight whine from where Samantha was laying in the crater she'd made on impact. She didn't seem to be particularly responsive, but enough to at least give off that in response. She'd landed on her heavier side - the metal side of her body - and though it had shielded most of her actual body from harm, there were several small shards sticking out from a damaged back implant and, more urgently, the wiring and plating down her right arm seemed to have been damaged along with the arm underneath, if the small trails of blood and the odd angle it was at were anything to go by. The rest of her was still in rough shape, but it looked like the remaining aura shielded the fall somewhat - she'd be flat as a pancake otherwise, instead of broken ribs and an arm. Still, it wasn't exactly pretty - but still better than being caught in the centre of that gravity well.

One way or another, though, she was down for the count.

Both your symbols are remarkably similar.

Kin shrugged, not bothered by the dark past, "Makes sense to me. It seemed like a good idea to get rid of excess weight. It was literally the world's first ever death game. So, who's dealing?"

Saffron Biel needs a team. I'm alright with both joining an already existing team, or creating a new one.

Giving a small smile back to Janna she simply responded "That could be nice, but yeah, don't expect me to eat like you two."

As the conversation moved to strategy Diana really wanted to just defer entirely to Zaffre as she really was the expert, but figured she should say something at least since she was supposed to be leading. Absentmindedly she shook her head in bewilderment wondering, for what felt like the hundredth time, why she was chosen to lead.

"I do really appreciate you looking out for us Janna but you are an amazing fighter, and you should fight to your strengths. Besides Iím pretty agile, I can avoid most of the trouble that comes my way." she said whilst making sure not to rub her ankle as she had been for most of the conversation.

She looked from Brock to Zaffre as they talked about his ranged capabilities but didnít really have anything to add, the sniper like rounds she used would certainly not work with his weapon. She did pick up on the change to Zaffre as she mentioned her dad, Diana looked on with eyes that were partially piercing with curiosity but were mostly caring with empathy. She desperately wanted to be there for her with whatever it was, but knew better than to force it. She made a mental note to ask Zaffre if there was anything she would like to talk about when the two were alone at some point.

Beacon Academy / Re: ABoat time [Open]

"Hey, being a mood killer is your job now, Captain!" Kisha replied with a big grin on her face, then continued to beg for another presentation of his semblance. And her wish was granted. Overexcited, Kisha happily clapped her hands together, like a small child that had just seen a magic show for the first time. Hopping, almost jumping, she made her way to the boat's rear, just as Calen advised her to, "Don't hold anything back, kay?" she called to him as she held on patiently and waited for the push. The patience gnawed at her as it took a little longer than before. Well, it didn't take THAT long, but with the excitement going on inside Kisha, it felt like an eternity. She swayed from foot to foot as she just stood there and waited for the boat to be turned and ready. Just before the launch, something flashed in Kisha's eyes and her grin turned into a smirk. This will be great!

When the boat finally launched forward Kisha did the unthinkable. She lets go. Just a shrill "WWwhhhiiiii~!" echoed through the air as she swiftly bypassed gravity and flew through the air and out of the boat. She stretched her limbs out, enjoying the wind and the water coming towards her and completely embraced the feeling of weightlessness. For the short time she had. Barely a second after she left the boat's airspace, she opened her eyes, which she had closed during her 'flight', forming one circle each with her two hands, one facing the boat, and the other centered under her. The second she made contact with the portal underneath her, she came out of the other and straightened up directly, arms stretched out to both sides as if she just finished an acrobatic performance. She even bowed at the end of her presentation and let the portals behind her disappear shortly after.

Kisha looked up from her bow, "Again!"  she called out, but this time with a silly laugh. That was just as great as she had imagined it, but she didn't miss the obvious exhaustion on Calen's face, which is why she quickly added, "just kidding!"

She trudged through the half-submerged surface of the boat to Calen, soaking everything down to her ankles. Yep, she's going to have a cold tomorrow. "Augh, Captain!" Kisha began with a faked indignant voice, "I've already told you to refrain from politeness, Miss Miles sounds so important, Kisha is totally fine!" With that, she turned away from Calen again, but didn't stop talking, "Ever heard of the word 'Yolo'? Personally, I don't like to use it, but the meaning describes me quite well. You only live once, Damn it! I knew what you do with the boat the second time, but I still made it exciting. Knowing what's going to happen is not bad, don't get me wrong here, but let me tell it to you again, live a bit riskier. Besides, you're here in Beacon, you can't get through this if you're planning everything." She paused for a moment to take a deep breath, that topic was going on long enough, "But okay. Either way he wants." She finally finished. As she spoke, she had crouched down and looked at the water inside the boat. She reached out her index finger and stuck it in the water, marking a small circle on its surface. Like the portals before, a blue disc-like creation appeared where she had painted the circle in the water, but nothing happened yet. Kisha straightened up and walked to the edge of the boat, repeating the process, placing the second portal well out of the boat's reach. As soon as the second portal appeared, the water inside the boat drained. The boat was not completely freed from the water and the entire surface was still slippery and damp, but it was better than nothing.

"Black." Kisha said out of nowhere as she watched the water drain, "I always liked this color," she added. Her clothes were about 95% brown and beige. The only black on her were the gloves and pants. Well, maybe her brown hair looked black in the darkness of the night. With the water largely back in the ocean, Kisha closed the portals with a quick wave and turned back to Calen, "What about you? My money is on gray," she said as her eyes scanned his clothes from top to bottom. "Well, if we're already on a question-and-answer session, favorite animal? Oh, no, wait! Favorite mythical creatures!?"
