Ok guys. First off, allow me to introduce myself. I am Boodums90. I came to AS at the recommendation of DeaconPhenix, author of "Battle of 4 Dragons" and "Alone with the Revenant".
Alright here's the scoop. I have been going back and forth with this story for five years now. I had scrapped it but have recently been encouraged to rewrite it. The story is based in a galaxy called Sistema Estrella. There are seven planet in the solar systems, each planet being the home to a different type of creature: Gabstrea'el- elves; Barlognauria- aliens; Bestia- aninoyds (animals that can walk and talk and are human-sized); Tierra- humans; Falto de Sangre- vampires; Destino- werewolves; and Fuego- Dragon/Dragon Riders.
There was a peace treaty stating that for at least 7 years there would be no wars or rumors of war in the galaxy. Each planet signed. The aliens broke the treaty about 6 and a quarter years later by blowing up the elfin planet. The main character, Perazon, is supposed to be the only surviving elf.
Now, here is a brief generalization of each creature type.
Elves- intelligent, wise, pompous, they are the eldest creatures in galaxy. Weaponry- medival looking items with technology and magic to vamp them up. Age ratio: 1 to 10 human years
Aliens- Evil, self-serving, manipulative, they live for gradification of the senses. Weaponry- futuristic weapons with plasma bullets and such.
(their look is like this ) Age ratio: 1 to 4 human years
Humans- thought of as weak, for the most part ignorant of the other creatures except for the governments and a select few. Weaponry- much like what we have now in the "real world". Age ratio: normal
Aninoyds- can be any creature, I focused more on ferrets. Weaponry- anything can apply. Ferrets have sup-ed up medival weapons like a boomerang with knives on the ends. Age ratio: 1/2 to 1 human year
Vampires and Werewolves and Dragons/Dragon Riders- I am open to ideas on these. The planets that the vampires and werewolves live on were once human colonies but I will tell more in the story. Age Ratio: I am thinking immortal for all of them to time, can be killed tho.
So here is what I am looking from the ASers. Characters:
Facial Hair? Tatoos, Ear rings, piercings, etc.?:
I am opening any character idea that you think would fit into my story. For now, I ask that you limit one character per person. I am looking for five dragons, five dragon riders, ten humans, 4 elves, 4 aliens, 3 vampires and 2 werewolves. For aninoyds, I am looking for any ideas you have. They have to be "real" animals that are "humanized". Submission is open til I have chapter 3 up.
I am also open to questions and comments. I will be posting my first chapter within the next week, so please look at for it. In the mean time, you can also check out my boy DeaconPhenix's stuff.

First, I would recommend editing out your age. You're not supposed to post any personal info on the boards, names, ages, locations, etc. The mods are strict about that and I'd hate to see you get banned.
Second, how long are you leaving submissions open?
Third, how many characters can someone submit?
Fourth, Is there a limit on the number of characters for any given world?
Fifth, I'll get started on making a character...and I'm calling Dragon Rider just incase there is a limit.
Glad to see you can make threads now

I like her. Very sexy. Very much like what I had in mind for her. Thanks.
I am hoping that more ppl will post some more characters soon. I am starting to gather my ideas into chapters and I would like to start including whatever new characters are given.

I know the excitement of starting a story and the need to write/start posting chapters, but you might want to be a little patient with character submissions. This folder has been slow for awhile now and it might take a week or two before the users who check in here find this. I've noticed that character submissions have been a little slow in here as of late.
Now, on to my question. Are dragon riders and dragons two different characters? I'm sure there are probably a few dragons on that world that don't have riders...but I was kinda tailoring my rider with her dragon. Since, and I'm not sure why I assumed this, I was basing the rider has having formed a bond with her dragon at the dragon's birth. Because of this, I was making a dragon too. I kinda assumed the two went hand in hand.

You will have to forgive me Ms. Witch. Patience is not one of my virtues. I will wait tho.
You are correct in your assumptions. Dragons pick their riders at dragon's birth. In fact a dragon is not birthed until it feels the presence of its rider. They are birthed from the earth. Riders roam the entire planet searching for their dragon. There are very few dragons without riders. Only those dragons that their riders died are roaming the planet Fuego freely. Each dragon is unique to its rider. It matches his or her personality, thought patterns, techniques. No other Rider can communicate with or ride another's dragon. Dragon Riders are not human. They look like humans. but they are much stronger and faster than humans, and their senses are much higher than human. Taste, smell, sexual desires.. everything is heightened.

Don't worry about it, I've seen it work both ways, those making characters waiting patiently for the story to be published
Yay! I was right...and a little wrong. Don't worry...it's just the birthing process. I'll change it up. Quick question though...does the dragon come from an egg or just burst through the dirt? Also how does the "earth" affect the dragon...i.e. calmer dragons coming from watery places, quick to anger from firy, etc?
Edit: spelling is not my strong suit today

The birthing of a dragon comes from anywhere. They could fall from space in a meteor (those are rare), be born of water, fire, dirt, ice, electricity or metal. Each is based on, not necessarily what they rider thinks his personality is but what the dragon senses in his heart. For instance, a rider may think he is an agressive, angry person and look for his dragon in fire but the dragon that is born to him is one of ice.
heres the breakdown:
fire- aggression, angry
metal- dark, mysterious
water- fun loving, pure
dirt- down to earth, "normal"
ice- firm, leader
Colors vary and are not based on anything.

Just throwing it out there, if anyone needs me to break down a certain creature type like I did for Witch with the Dragons and Riders, I will be more than happy to do so.

Thanks for this. I should have the character done by the end of the week.
Edit: Does the dragons gender need to match the riders?
03-20-2012 02:04 PM
No thank you. I appreciate you doing this for me. You have no idea.

You are more than welcome to do a dragon and its rider. I need 5 of them.
03-22-2012 03:53 PM
Witch, I just realized that i did not answer your question. No the genders do not have to match.

I very much look forward to meeting your dragon and rider.
03-26-2012 12:26 PM
Hi, me again. Sorry, I'm not quite done with my character yet...I have a few more questions.
How do dragons age? Do they have a childhood, teen years, young adult, etc.? Would you expect younger dragons to behave slightly differently than older ones? LIke more childlike? Or are they born completely formed?
Appearence for the rider: Do you want real world appearances...hair color, eye color, etc.? Or are any colors a go?
03-26-2012 01:36 PM - edited 03-26-2012 01:39 PM
Hey Witch. Good to hear from you again. Dont sweat not having it done. I am being patient just like you told me to.
To answer your questions, dragons grow as their riders do. Riders go out in search of their dragons at about 8 years old. They usually find them no later than 13. In that time, the two become more and more familiar with one another. If a rider finds his Dragon by say 12 in human years, then they are both "adults" by 25. How quickly they mature also depends on the personality types. Fire born dragons birthed to angry ppl tend to mature slower than say water borns because the riders tend to mature slower. Riders and Dragons stop aging at 40. Their immortality fully develops by then and, save for being killed, they are no longer really effected by time. So the riders and dragons do mature. there is a childhood, teen years, young adults, etc. They do act differently with age. However, they born looking about the age of the rider. A 8 years old's dragon will look younger than a 13 year old's even if they are found on the same day. This is due to the fact that they were made for one another.
Riders look like humans as far as skin tones. but everything else can be any color.
Any other ?s let me know. And be sure to comment on my prologue under "Perazon". I will be making some changes soon cus I had DeaconPhenix edit it.
03-26-2012 01:50 PM
Thanks. That's all the question for now. I'm going to have to change some things...so it might take me till the end of the week to get this to you.
I saw it and plan on reading it soon
03-26-2012 02:25 PM
Take your time, I appreciate you doing it at all.
And I look forward to your thoughts on it.
