Come on, zoncxs, you're killin' me here. You've given me another superhero anime character; I am failing to define what I mean by 'semi-realistic'...

I do admire your creative characters and your use of imbuements, I honestly do. But despite my admiration, you're giving me a Phobia about imbuements :)
I'm gonna have to be a hard-ass and just disallow them entirely.

Please remember that this won't be a DF game. Stop testing me and come up with the believable and capable character that I know darn well you can make... Pretty Please??

Never said it had to be daily. I just said it would be a bonus for posting at the required rate. If the game requires a post every other day, then posting a significant post when their character was involved in the action. If their character is unconscious, dead, on another planet, etc., the wouldn't be penalized for not posting.

Plus, the points wouldn't have to be put towards advancement every week, but they could still be rewarded.

Also, just curious, why don't you allow weekly advancement? Character points and advancements reward the player, not the character. Shouldn't a player be allowed some sort of weekly reward for good role playing? What's the downfall of allowing it? Never had a problem with it myself.

Impressive character... you've got 3 unused quirks to fill in yet.

And just a reminder that most of your gear enchantments (including cornucopia) won't survive the transition (although alchemist matches will work fine).
So... you might want to pick up some real arrows :)

Question on the limited disadvantages: Would gigantism be counted towards the 4 since it is really a zero point feature?

See this thread for some various thoughts on the subject. Don't get worried that those rules are in force for this particular game... I would have stated so at the beginning if I were intending that.

hmm.. it makes sense to call that a feature for this purpose; it won't count against your disad limit.
