Retsuno Eir and the Fountain of Hipsters

Post  Temo on Fri Nov 02, 2012 1:32 am

Bwaaaah, can't believe I'm doing this again. ;A;

Character Name Retsuno Eir
Race Tuathan
IC Skill Name: Fountain of Youth
Power Class: Item/Regenerative
OOC Representation: Character's body? (Or at least he's always supposed to look 14. I can't get age pots or RBs for that ALL the time. :T)
Description: One of Retsu's many adventures in his younger days, back when he actually was 14, he came across a golem in a corner of Karu dungeon who was protecting an artifact known as the Fountain of Youth. (Which was practically the same as any other fountain you'd see in a dungeon, really.) In all honesty, he'd only wanted to take a peek without actually drinking from it; but there was a little incident involving the guardian accidentally knocking him into it when attacking and...well...that's how it happened. As for the fountain, Ternock and Retsu soon discovered the golem was linked to it in a way that when it crumbled, so did the fountain, which made the whole trip a bust save for the adventure, and Retsu's unfortunate "immortality".

Basically, the Fountain of Youth was one of those "eternal life" miracles. I could write a whole essay on how it came to be; but that would perhaps be taking this a little too far. If going into the simple biology behind it though, it does a bunch of mumbo-jumbo to constantly revive and rejuvenate aging cells and keeps the body from aging as quickly as it normally would. This doesn't make Retsu live forever, but slows his aging to a turtle's crawl.

Explain relation: Basically, my excuse for why he, a Tuathan, is still so young when others seem to age weekly, monthly, whatever. I think I'm like...the only one that does it annually. I just felt like I needed some written thing for the sake of whatever continuity there was on that. Given it does seem to others like he hasn't aged much in ever anyways, not really much of a change. Just a backstory to why. :T
Notes: This only slows Retsu's age; and he is still mortal. It may take him forever to pass due to natural aging, but if he does through other causes - such as illness, poison, stabbies, beheading, etc. - he still dies for good.

My only issue is... what is a golem doing in Karu forest? O_o

Just back story. If it helps any, I'll call it a statue spider/hound/whatever. They're pretty much the same thing. :V Giant stone living statues with a chip on their shoulder. (lololol pun)

So..basically you're putting a mystical, immortality granting fountain in Karu?

And taking it out at the same time. One of those rare little things that was used once and then the effects are no longer accessible. Much like how normal IG fountains work...except this one was also destroyed. :I

I wondered if this may have been a borderline FEC, seeing how it worked and would've been broken by the end of it; but it's not exactly a major, game-breaking mechanic or something that's going to take the entire guild by storm, right?

I guess I personally don't have a problem with it, but I dunno. I just hope it doesn't turn into a big thing.

So whatever. Approval for now.

That was pretty much why I made sure to destroy it too, so it wouldn't get to be. silent

Far as everything else goes, Retsu's just the same as always. As I said, this was just an excuse to keep him from aging weekly as a Tuathan. I've never been comfortable with that, especially when there's so much development missed out on in those cases...cannot compact a year of growing into a week or month, so sorry my brain and activity does not work that way. x_x;

I don't get it. Especially the underlined-italic'd part.

Tuathan are supposed to age annually. ._. The new Tuatha children just age fast up to a certain adolescent age before starting aging annually (Makes more sense with a Milletian parent). I mean, I'm sure you haven't had that character for 14 years >.>; But yeah... That power seems kind of pointless since that long aging process is a given while playing a Tuatha character.
Also when you say you think you're the only one who does it, well... I don't think everyone can afford age potions every week, so maybe seeing the characters be super tall just feels weird when they're supposed to be 13-15 >>;

I don't know. I just feel it's kind of redundant since Tuathas age annually anyway.

Because from what I gathered in examining other players' characters, the majority's idea of an annual year for a Tuathan is just a week (regardless of their parents). For others, it's a month. As I said, I can't do that, so even if redundant to be posting here, I'm doing this just to be sure I can justify it in some way should the question, "You were born before/around the same time I was, how the hell did I get so much older than you?" come up.

Spoiler:
Personally, I think some things are better left under a veil. I rarely touch upon my characters birthdays, unless I make it a special point to for a specific reason. None of my Erinn borns get "birthday celebrations" from me, even though IC I'm sure they do celebrate it whenever it comes around. Because time is so odd between our world and erinn, I feel it's easier to just ignore some things directly, and just take an indirect approach to them.


Anyway, why not just have him guzzle age potions IC? He doesn't have to admit to it, or he can even be like "oh idk why I just never age."


This actually gives me a really good idea. :3

I'd rather not, because having him guzzle potions every week/"year" doesn't really feel like it'd have the same affect. Somebody doing that would still possibly die within a (real) year if going by the current aging thing (which also means Retsu should technically have died of old age himself by now). Or be an old fogey by the end of it and probably not going to live through the next just by age alone. So I think I'll stick to this option if it's alright with everyone else. xD;

I do what I think Soifa said. My Tuathan Elf, Ninian, stopped aging. I think I started her at 12, and it's been about 2 years maybe? My children I age to a certain point then have them stop aging. Like Isold aged to about 20 and stopped. Anyways, that's just me. Yes they age slowly, if at all (it's been some RL years since Mabi itself came out), and I kinda like to have it that way.

Also....imagination. It exists.

Well, I'm using imagination here. And now this is starting to become random conversation and repeats of stuff on the subject when I'm just needing one more approval so...anybody else? Yays? Nays? o3o;
