Mature Content Tweak
January 11, 2018
Mature content now depends entirely on the birth date listed in your profile. It will automatically decide if you're above 18 and start displaying mature threads to you. These are highlighted yellow, so you can still avoid them if you'd rather.
New Year, New Theme!
January 5, 2018
Wow it's weird to be typing 2018... anyway, we have a new theme with some fancy stuff, but some of it is still broken. Also the email field for guests appears again, I'll fix it eventually.
Introducing Battle Suite 4.0 RC2
October 24, 2017
We now have a working version of an early write-up of Battle Suite 4.0 available for use. This system completely automates tabletop functions, and is very user-friendly.

Embers // Afterlife Fantasy

Welcome to the first day of your new life. Embers is an afterlife fantasy cyberpunk RPG, running since 2006, first under the name War Chain, and then under the name Tamashii no Chikai, originally as a Bleach RP. Some Bleach influence still remains, but it is all presented differently and features new elements. The recent 2016 reboot under the name Embers follows a very similar standard and focus that War Chain and Tamashii no Chikai did, and we hope Embers will grow into its own free of its fandom ties. Here's to 157,000 more posts!
Mature themes, half the board is gay. Not recommended for bigots or individuals under 16 years of age. You must be 18 or older to gain access to the mature boards.

Skills
Dákrya tou Foínika
Foínix ( 1050 / 1300 )
Level 18 [ 875 / 1300 ]
If Alexios concentrates for a moment on his own wounds, or the wounds of others, he can force a small patch of fire to appear over the wound. This fire restores health.
Blinking
Force Control ( 1000 / 1100 )
Level 19 [ 925 / 1100 ]
Teleportation, yes. It may be slightly uncomfortable but it beats having to run through all of Asgard on the off chance he has to go down there. No thanks, he'll take a short cut. It's also nifty to just appear behind an opponent sometimes, no lie.
Defensive Sorcery
Force Control ( 1000 / 1100 )
Level 16 [ 750 / 1100 ]
Alex is occasionally not the greatest at remembering to actually use defensive tactics instead of just trying to out offense his opponent, but he does have some skill in here.
Defensive Swordsmanship
Swordsmanship ( 1050 / 1100 )
Level 19 [ 900 / 1100 ]
Alex tends to use his sword to parry slightly more often than he uses defensive force. ... But he still prefers to out-offense an opponent if he can.
Flertárontas ton Foínix
Foínix ( 1050 / 1300 )
Level 16 [ 750 / 1400 ]
Alexios points Foínix at a target and a projectile shaped like a bird made of fire launches towards them. It can and will follow them if they change directions, but will detonate and do its damage on the first thing it hits - barrier, target, or tree, for example.
Foínix
Level 22 [ 1050 / 1300 ]
Foínix maintains the form of a xiphos in release, though the upper portion of the blade gains the phoenix design etched in bronze on both sides. The sharp edges of the blade turn crimson while the rest of the metal maintains its normal steel sheen.
Foínix Tragoúdi
Foínix ( 1050 / 1300 )
Level 17 [ 800 / 1300 ]
As a fight begins to look bad for Alexios, he can sometimes trigger the Phoenix Song. The haunting melody can be heard for quite a distance. It can be memorizing, and completely distract the enemy, depending on just how focused the individual is. Further more, it can be used to call for aid. (25% chance to cause confusion when successful)
Force Control
Level 21 [ 1000 / 1100 ]
Force control is an art that Alexios has mastered more as a function of training other things than because this is what he focused on personally. Still, it has its uses.
Kataigída
Foínix ( 1050 / 1300 )
Level 15 [ 745 / 1400 ]
A whirlwind of flames materializes around an opponent serving to injure them and attempt to obscure their vision for one turn - this lowers their accuracy by 5.
Lámpsi Fotiá
Foínix ( 1050 / 1300 )
Level 21 [ 1000 / 1300 ]
Brilliant flashes of quick-burning red fire flare towards the target. They cause minimal damage, but can be fired very quickly and repetitively without draining Alexios's power too quickly.
Lightfoot
Force Control ( 1000 / 1100 )
Level 19 [ 900 / 1100 ]
Right, running. Okay, actually movement skill in general, and it's useful. Not his favorite pass time, but it has probably saved his butt a few times so he knows better than to neglect it entirely.
Offensive Sorcery
Force Control ( 1000 / 1100 )
Level 18 [ 850 / 1100 ]
Alex doesn't rely very much on sorcery, at the end of the day. It's something he's learned to use because it has its uses, but he prefers fighting with Foínix and the occasional hand to hand exchange right than using Sorcery.
Pyrkagiá
Foínix ( 1050 / 1300 )
Level 16 [ 780 / 1400 ]
The ground under a chosen target erupts into flames dealing damage with a 10% chance of trapping them in place for one turn.
Swordsmanship
Level 22 [ 1050 / 1100 ]
Well, at some point in here he had to learn how to actually use Foínix in sealed and released forms. So... he's had a long time to get the hang of it, honestly.
Thálassa ton Fomáton
Foínix ( 1050 / 1300 )
Level 20 [ 950 / 1300 ]
Blood red fire washes from Foínix's blade, spreading in a wide arc towards the target. Can strike multiple targets.
Unarmed Combat
Level 20 [ 950 / 1100 ]
Sometimes the weapon gets lost somehow. It happens to everyone from time to time. And when it happens, you should probably be able to survive, yeah? Yeah. And so, the art of punching things is at least sort of important. He doesn't use it quite as often as he uses his sword though, for obvious reasons.
