Charron Adhémar de Lyon
Atishamis of the Erasem clan is an Elvhen Dreamer, like Solas or Fen'Harel. But it was only when he joined the Herald's vanguard as an accomplished warrior that this realization happened. His focus and skill with two short swords could not be reached by many, and although he is or was a Dalish elf, therein lay his source of "strength," which was not born of sheer physicality, but of finesse; graceful, flowing movements that seemed to be inscribed in him like smooth etchings in rune stones. This enabled Atishamis to move quickly like a whirlwind. He could bypass blocks, dodge parries, and outflank shields in an onslaught of motion that was almost incomprehensible even to the most seasoned of fighters who had borne witness to a plethora of combat in their time during the crisis of the Breach.
However, all this fighting was an outlet for him to explore the Fade; the past, the present, and even glimpses into the future, simultaneously. His movements were not solely his own but an amalgamation of spirits guiding his limbs to move and sway as if wading in the water. Floating there and letting the tides pull and shove him. It was their experience as warriors that facilitated many victories. One can even watch it happening as he almost dances around; his eyes unfocused in the here and now, lost somewhere in a battle taking place on some distant field of war. But being a Dreamer has its price: Demons. Perverse abominations of their former selves always seek out Dreamers, and many find themselves driven mad before long...
Rules & Obligations
1.) Be respectful at all times--no objections.
2.) Follow all Iwaku guidelines and rules.
3.) I have certain expectations when it comes to writing, but I'm not going to be a complete jackass and hold you to every grammatical error that you might make--that isn't my place or my job. I will let you hold yourself accountable for being a creative, inventive writer--or if I feel we wouldn't mesh well, I'll ask you to leave--politely, of course.
However, that being said, there are some particulars I would enjoy seeing in building this concept. This will need to be a team effort after all but I will reserve my right to do what is best for the story, the characters, and so on. Furthermore, I will always ask and cooperate if I feel what I might do or be planning, will impact your character in some major way. Be that character death, romance, or anything smut related. This will be an adult story and your actions--for good or ill--will play a part in how I may see this story playing out. I don't think that is an unreasonable thing to declare, and I will with my authority, be generous and nurturing so that we may foster the right ambiance.
Some things I expect are:
[*] Past/ Present Tense. Know which one to use and when to use it, please.
[*] Functional and detailed posts.
[*] I am looking for adept, adaptable, and advanced writers.
[*] As far as paragraphs go--I am looking for a pretty well-structured and detailed individual who can help drive the plot forward; my character might be the "hero" but I want your character(s) to shine and have their moments of growth as well. For this, I am mandating that paragraphs be 5-7 sentences each and that at least two paragraphs must be constructed and push the story along. If you find yourself struggling, Private message me, and we'll talk about it; brainstorm until you can perform adequately.
[*] You may play up to THREE characters of any gender you so choose. But again, I'd like to see a modicum romance and desires. Call me old fashioned but it is what it is. I will probably be playing far more than just three characters--what with all the side characters.
[*] Speaking of romance; I prefer MxF. I have nothing against bisexuals, gays, transgenders--but it is MY preference. Dragon Age has never shied away from the debacle of hook-ups with multiple partners, or same-sex consummation. I just prefer a man and a woman, though, in reality, I am bisexual myself so I know what it means to play for both sides. So, if you want to be what makes you feel comfortable. I'm not going to make you be anything that makes you uncomfortable.
[*] As for smut scenes themselves, they will be placed in named spoilers for the benefit of the whole group. I realize not everyone is crazy about sexual content, and that's okay. I just see it as a way a character can grow and evolve emotionally, mentally--even physically to a degree. Sex is definitely emotional, especially if you are doing it 'right'. It can leave a profound alteration to who you are. That's an aspect I find crucial in building lasting bonds. In the same order, don't be one of those people that writes a sex scene every other post. That's just a bit overkill.
