Random thought that crawled into my mind when writing a post.

How well could you describe your fellow Viners? Their character that is. I know we have a picture them as type thread. But that does not always show exactly what they look like. Or how they describe themselves in their posts. Not only can this help people learn what others actually look like, but it could help descriptive writing as well.

No description of a single person should be longer than a paragraph.

Are we sticking to physical descriptions?

Cool thread btw.

@Obi Wan Kenobi!:
Obi was a skinny guy. His mouth always fell open and you could see a pool of slobber waiting to drool out. Drool never came out, but it made him look slow. He scored straight A's on all his test. He wasn't dumb just aloof. He always stared blankly out the class window. His mouth was slightly open with the pool of saliva in his mouth. Obi didn't talk much either.

:D

That's my point though. How many people have actually payed attention to others in their rpgs. To the point that they can describe what one another look like.
Generic personalities are easier, but remembering how they look. That is a bit harder. Down to the eye color, height, weight, color of hair. Skin complexion, way the walk or carry themselves. What they have on, weapons carried. The personality could all be thrown in with it.

Gambler's trademark grin for example helps to highlight his characters cockiness/confidence.

i wonder wut people could describe DC looks like

#21 Posted by Tiamat (2087 posts) - - Show Bio
@Darkchild: I can describe old DC. But I believe you have mentioned his appearance being different now a days.

@Tiamat: only thing ive mentioned lately is hes more demonic looking in true form an to those who can perseve his real image. But other times well most of the time many of the Vine World see's DC in their own ways.

the union image of DC nowadays is a man with long black hair in a ponytail. in a business suit or tux.

So wanted to know wut u thought of him

Andferne facing off against Darkchild as much as we did. It's hard for me to envision him that way.
I've always pictured his shadowed demonic form. Large bulging muscles, razor sharp claws, etc.

I remember when I first came to the Vine and reading stuff from you and EC, and thinking your two characters to be so similar.
#25 Posted by Darkchild (40624 posts) - - Show Bio
@Tiamat: In those days we really were very similar, before he went all Kain they were damn near carbon copies. but we made our appearances different to make up for it.

and yeah i know some people find it hard to see DC as anything but what u mentioned. Specially ones who have fought him for so long like u. Those who describe him like i did above are those who are fairly new to the game, or new to meeting DC.

@Darkchild:

I did my best:

To describe Darkchild is to describe a shadow without a name. He is darkness, a walking embodiment of hopelessness. When he dares to mock humankind with their skin and hair, he appears rather gentlemanly, the proprietor of an estate perhaps, or maybe the wealthy businessman of a foreign land. Even as he disguises himself, there is an aura of unspeakable nothingness concerning this subject. He is a razor plunging into the skin, taking the breath before the cut, and so infinitely close to the flesh that it cannot be perceived as ever touching it. But Darkchild takes that dare. He spits in the face of common decency and the urge to not make the first incision. He wears the face of a butcher calmly excusing himself from any crime. His smile is contorted, as if he is not accustomed to wearing it, and his hair is thin and black, as if even the dead skin cells conglomerated there have nothing to hide either. His eyes are empty, save for the temporary pulsation of adrenaline or excitement when something he is particularly intrigued in changes. Only then does his lips curl, and a long, agonizingly slow, laugh escape his wretched lungs.

@The Dark Huntress:

She just beyond half my height, but to denounce her lean body structure for weak is to insult whatever blacksmith made her. Cass is the hardest of the hard, in a mental sense of the comparison. She is a frail woman, someone I can break in an instant, and who has been broken in such a short amount of time. Her regenerative healing factor is the only reason she is alive now. Not because of some freakish superhuman strength. Not because her skin is bulletproof or because she is invulnerable inside and out. She takes beatings like most people eat breakfast - like there is nothing else that matters in the world other than the first bite to wake a person up in the morning. If she did not have the healing factor, she would be a road map of scars. But, luckily, nothing upsets that beautiful smile of hers.

@The Dark Huntress:

Whisper

Her strawberry blond hair flowed in the wind as she made her way towards him. She was a little taller than the average girl with a slight figure, though she moved like a gymnast. Her pointed brown cowboy boots clicked on the tile floor below her and she struted back and forth with her torn blue jeans and black t-shirt that was a little too short and tight for her father's approval. The smile on her face as she started to jog towards him, warmed his heart and instantly all was forgiven. Jumping into his arms he could smell the lavender and jasmine and it reminded him of her mother. His daughter was a woman and a girl wrapped up into one.

Risky

 

Her blue eyes looked through the scope lining up the sights on her target. With a last adjustment of her dails and a brush of her short dark hair behind her ear she leaned in and readied herself. Her short compact body lay on the ground in a prone position, left knee pulled into a 90 degree angel. The tight leather pants that she wore left little to the imagination but he imagined anyways. Hawk stood just a meter behind her and watched her chest heave in her much too low cut shirt that clung tight to her body, until she held her breath preparing to fire. As she squeezed off a round Hawk noticed just a glipms of her tan skin was exposed on the small of her back. Turning over and smiling she had a slight crook to her grin as she said "Head shot....target elimated."

Final Arrow.

He whistled a song as he nearly skipped down the sidewalk. Twirling his cane in his long pointed fingers, his dark yellow and sharpened finger nails stood in stark contrast to his ghost white skin. A slight wind picked up as he moved along, blowing his long black over coat reveling a scarlet vest and tie against a white shirt. Finally she saw him as he approached with a dance in his step. She couldn't help but look into this ice blue eyes, but it really should have been his pale lips that she should have studied. Cause though he whistled a friendly tune, they were gnarled and turning into an evil grin. As he approached her his dark red tounge shot out to lick his lips. Looking her over his hunger for lust took over and he dined on her flesh.

@Warsman: 
It was hard to tell just what he was. He stood tall and ominous, plated in armor. Cold metal and sharp spikes adorned his form. As he stood still, there was a threatening calm like that before devastating storm. Any semblance of normal life signs came from the glimmer of red eyes peering down from the dark black wholes that encompassed and overshadowed them. One could be paralyzed in fear just trying to see into those eyes. One could miss the fatal instrument by his side, Warfang, it never to be forgotten again. There he stood like a fortified tower. It was hard to tell just what he was. He was fear; he was wrath. He was Warsman.
