    Oh, I see. Thanks for clearing up my misunderstanding. I would actually prefer that you make a form specifically for this thread.

    I will use this form that was used originally in the roleplay I was in before on which this one for Restoration is somewhat based.

    Character sheet categories to fill:

    Character Name

    Age

    Race

    Gender

    Description

    Racial abilities

    Skills

    Personality

    Dislikes

    Likes

    Backstory

    Equipment

    Other

    Here is how my character's description has been filled out.

    Name: Arapegol

    Age: 26

    Race: Human, mantype mostly, a trace (a quarter at most) elf by descent

    Gender: male

    Description: tall and slim, with muscular arms and agile legs with strong feet that would never need footwear if they are not available

    Racial abilities (limit-4): perceive things in the dark with infrared and ultraviolet vision, up to 50 feet distance, hides much more easily than other human people, great agility at climbing beyond normal ability, highly dexterous

    Skills (anything not general. limit-3): highly proficient at archery, charming easily with skillful songs, knowledge to thrive traveling on water, with devices or vehicles or needing to swim

    Personality: shy at first but bonding with others after exposure to those who are trustworthy

    Dislikes: any food not from plants, including fungi like mushrooms, offensive people, and aggressive wild carnivores among the wildlife

    Likes: any sweet fruits, nuts of various kinds, salads, vegetable soups, good social times, or solitary time, good music, also gentle animals which he likes to befriend

    Backstory: In the land of Tenoba, a gang was hired a couple of years ago by a wizard, Diragusher, who meant to have the control of that city Erpedoben continue, in the wake of divisive challengers causing instability to it. Those in the gang had passed tests, that limited their membership to the most agile and athletic in the community. When that was found to not be enough, that wizard selected those most trusted to his cause to carry small powerful artifacts, orbs, or rods, each with defining ability for those using them. And they were trained for supernatural activity. But lately there was more trouble heard of abroad. Some would have to be sent off from that community, for dealing with these things, including Arapegol with his friend Eyriconer.

    Arapegol carried a medallion of exotic metal on him which identifies his order, that appointed gang. He carried a rod, with a glowing tip, freshly acquired and useful for alteration, and a glowing orb, freshly acquired and useful for teleportation. He had his bag of coins on his belt, the bow and arrows with him, and carried the bag with the orb, the rod, a few food items, and a blanket adequate for comfort wherever he might stop.

    Arapegol left that city of Erpedoben mostly under control with the supervision of that wizard, commissioned by him and accompanied by Eyriconer of the appointed gang, a slightly younger though large and wider man, in their travel out to where the main road went by the Primal Forest with deep dark spaces within it where no people had ever gone. Here there had been disappearances lately, and they were actually the second two sent out from the wizard this way. They would both need the devices they were trusted with, to deal with whatever danger they found in that area.

    A monster surprised them on the road where it went along the edge of the forest, shooting a tentacle out and withdrawing Eyriconer before either could react, but Arapegol shot at the monster presumably killing it. But Eyriconer did not respond to his calls and came out no more from there.

    After a journey some way beyond the Primal Forest, Arapegol came to another city. He saw an inn, and came to it. Arapegol came in, looked around, and walked to the bar, letting out his grief. He came to some sense, he inquired and received directions to where he could by maps, to help him get his bearing. At this time there a was an attempted robbery on a carriage as it was pulling out. As Arapegol heard noises from that as he was coming to the door of the place where he had bought maps, he saw one of the gang there about to attack a female elf riding her mount from behind, he used the teleportation to cast that attacker far away. He ran to where the robbers were surro the carriage, and he cast more far away with teleportation. But just then as one who was leading the robbers held up some crystal gem claiming it was a powerful artifact he would threaten those there with, there was another there with a weapon that shot right at that artifact, and it shattered, and that other shot that robber until the robber fell. Other robbers had fallen too. But at the shattering of the artifact a supernatural event happened right then, and the minds of a number of people in that area were swept into others bodies whose minds had also moved to others. The mind of Arapegol went to the body of the woman within the carriage where the robbery was attempted. Others there were affected, some of them the player characters in that unfinished roleplaying scenario, who with their minds in new bodies had to find their original bodies. And so the party of player characters, after the deputies of the law came and there was an account of the events and a reward for dealing with the leading robber, needed to find a safe place for where they would spend the night. They were going to choose a place for themselves. Arapegol though had used the rod of alteration to make a duplicate of his own body on the woman's body his mind was in, and went quickly on to hurry back on the road to his home city Erpedoben, after the rod of alteration was stolen away from him by a fiend that was kept as a familiar. Along the way he found his friend Eyriconer who had been knocked unconscious but had recently crawled out from that Primal Forest, where he lay along that road, and he helped him up and along the way where he returned to their city, where he was brought to his home. Arapegol went to see the high wizard Diragusher who had appointed them to go.

    The wizard Diragusher told him he had information on the artifact that could reverse the exchange of minds, which could be found, and gave instruction to Arapegol for going with more power he would hold. He would have to go back north past the Primal Forest, on his way to seek and acquire that artifact for the reversal, and where he would likely find those characters who had also been altered. Others might go with Arapegol to accompany him.

    Equipment: Arapegol carries a medallion of exotic metal on him which identifies his order, that appointed gang. He brings a bow and quiver of arrows. He carries an orb, freshly acquired and useful for teleportation. He has his bag of coins on his belt, and carries the bag with the orb, a few food items, and a blanket adequate for comfort wherever he might stop.

    Other: Arapegol is useful for recognizing edibles which grow around the land. He can sing well, skillfully charming others. He can commune with spirits, and know things about places, and things about the past, and have limited ability to know some things yet to come.

    @Sabes; I was thinking you remain interested in this, and even that it would be nott just for us, as I hope. I put a new thread up for this. I meant for it to go in the OOC forum, but I was looking around in the IC forums, to see what would be in the Fantasy one, and the Mature Fantasy one, which I decided would be right for this to be placed in, and forgot to go back to the OOC forum when I posted for the new thread. Since it is now in the IC Mature Fantasy forum, I will leave that as the IC roleplay thread for us. This thread here can work well enough functioning for an OOC thread for us, when we still need it.

    @Sabes; @Enigma; I thought better of it, and have an OOC thread put up in the forum for that, where you can put your character submissions in, following after the one for my character that I put in. There will be other characters, some I introduce, and I permit introducing another character while role-playing, while any other character introduced is not role played exclusively by any of us, but would be more on the sidelines.

    @GodlyD&D; These characters on the sidelines would be Non-Player-Characters (NPCs) created by yourself? Or would we be able to add a few NPCs with your permission?

    Haven't seen @Sabes; for a week.

    I mean that we each essentially roleplay one character. It would not show many individuals in this world that way. So characters that are introduced will not be individually roleplayed, if we each introduce one, which may appear in a scene, that any of us might interact with in such scene. They would not be involved in the same quest for the restoration that our characters would be. I already have a few anyway, but it is fair to have any other in this also introduce a character that is not being roleplayed into a scene. Our roleplayed characters are the main characters.

    I notice your character submission is the witch elf you used in roleplaying with me and others in Highland Sniper's roleplay thread previously. In this place for the restoration, that character has been altered, with her mind in another body, and the mind of Highland Sniper's character Jaydeen in her body. In this place where I pick up with the quest for the restoration, Jaydeen's mind in her body is with my character Arapegol at an inn in Quadick, and with another who came with him, where others would find them at the start in this. Your character's mind in the other body is somewhere else, and I can have that one brought back into the story. But that character is not intact at this point in the adventure, with all who were at the critical event having been changed, until it is rectified.

    Even Arapegol is changed. His mind went to the body of the woman in the carriage that was being attacked to be robbed. Arapegol just appears to be in his body because he used the supernatural power he had brought to duplicate his body from the other on to himself. And he was going to put the duplicate of that woman's body on to her with his body then, but she killed off the duplicate of her body that he was going to use for that. The problem to Arapegol still is that this duplicate is not as stable as the original body he had. Some other supernatural effect around Arapegol might have that duplicate body revert and he would be in that woman's body again.

    You might be willing to work with those circumstances, and you would be welcome to, as it can have restoration described for these characters with it being accomplished, or you might use another character, if that would be what you prefer.

    This is still nothing like a modern civilization, with everything being more simple and never coming to any industrial revolution. But there are great supernatural powers that come into play. It will be different in ways from Highlands portrayal, though I am indebted to ideas from that described setting. There will be no advanced weapon such as from industrialization any will have to use. There are weapons of supernatural effects though.

    I just checked on Sabes' posts, the last one was on February 24, it was then right before I first responded to Sabes' last post in this thread. I can just hope we see Sabes return here, as I was expecting that involvement.

    Okay, I am confused.

    I thought this was a different world, so a fresh start for this character without the mind-swapping.

    I was thinking it was understood, with this roleplay about the quest for restoration, and there being the description in the backstory of the character I am roleplaying, that the alterations to characters had happened and were going to be dealt with in this adventure. I did change things from the original roleplay this is based on, but it would be with the same people in it, with those affected being the same way in this. Highland Sniper's roleplay thread seemed to be for satisfying interest in people's switch to another body, which all happened to be some body of the other gender, and it being resolved, which interested me, was not as important to that thread. As Highland Sniper expressed no further interest in this after being originally interested in further pursuit in it, I rewrote things making this world more one of my creation, which it is, with enough the same to have resolution to that change. It would serve nothing to back up to roleplay up to where I would have it continue now after the change needing resolution. But this is for a resolution I will have it come to, yet there will be more things coming into this fantasy, that would not have it end with that one resolution.

    If your character that you wanted to roleplay does not suit you after the change to which we will have resolution with the restoration of characters' minds going to their own bodies again, I hope you will still be interested in this, as you may introduce a new character for it, though the restoration that will come will have that character you suggested already restored too.

    I am accepting your character in this roleplaying, @Enigma; and if the other who was interested; @Sabes; returns and responds showing a character to roleplay; I want to accept that too. The story of the thread is for restoration of characters in it, and I want to get to that right away, this does not mean there would not be more things to resolve, there will be a lot more, but then through those things we will have our characters, restored already to the way we had them in description to start with. This initial quest would come to that right away to account for that restoration.
