    Isaac is about 18 though does it count if you go about two centuries back in time? Does that make him -190 something years.

    @tal Aah, gotcha.


    @ariella-newheart
    You’re good! Yeah, so basically Dharin and Jaylin left the girls back in the hall, and now they (the guys) have run into Isaac and then Luke. Issac is masquerading as a Frenchman, and Dharin is by now almost totally convinced that this whole thing is an experiment that’s being run by a team of wizards. 😀

    Hope that’s helpful lol.

    M’kay, I’ll have to write Dharin’s response tomorrow 🙂

    Oh yeah and in response to someone’s question about who all knows whose names… Dharin knows Jaylin and Luke’s, and Isaac and Jaylin know Luke’s. And then Jaylin knows Dharin’s. But nobody knows Isaac’s, and Isaac and Luke don’t know Dharin’s.

    Hey guys, I completely forgot about this. Don’t worry about waiting on Connor. I don’t want to fully pull him out yet, cause I don’t exactly know what is going to happen, but my grandmother was just diagnosed with advanced liver cancer and they don’t know whether it has spread. She might not have long to live, so I probably won’t be on here much. However, there is no telling. I will continue to lurk and may post every once in a while.

    @christlover I’m so sorry about your Grandmother. I will be praying for her.

    And, to everyone else. Hope you don’t mind if I just randomly jump into the middle. I was noticing that we may be lacking a couple things, especially since Emory dropped out. So I’m bringing in a 10 year old girl from Iowa, 2020.

    Her name is Liberty Casey, but she prefers to be called Libby. She’s freckled, brown-headed, talkative, and wears glasses, but hates them. She wants to play professional American Football when she grows up, is super competitive, and dislikes pink.

    I’ll put her into the story in a bit.😆 Hope ya’ll don’t mind.

    Not all those who wander are lost.

    She was trapped.

    Libby pressed her back against the wall, and shoved a couple more rounds into her clip. Orange Nerf bullets whizzed past, bouncing against the end of the hallway. Her brothers were getting closer. It was two against one, now that Asher was down.

    He always takes too many chances. Libby frowned and pushed her glasses further up on the bridge of her nose. The firing stopped for a moment. Hopefully they’re out. Libby cautiously stuck her head around the corner. She saw a flash of red as her twin, Ryker ran past.

    “She’s coming out!” He shouted.

    No, I’m not. Libby darted across the hall on all fours. She yanked open the cleaning closet and ducked inside. Nerf bullets pelted the outside of the door. Then they stopped.

    “They’re probably sneaking up on me.” Libby dug some foam bullets out of her shorts pocket and filled her gun. She squinted up at the crack of light that surround the doorway, waiting.

    Nothing happened.

    “Great. I guess I’ll just have to run for it.” Libby made her way to the door, switched her gun to her left hand, and flung it open. The door clanked against the wall, echoing in a wide, stone-walled room.

    Libby stepped into the light, padding barefoot. “Uh, guys?”

    Not all those who wander are lost.

    @christlover, I’ve been on the road. I’ll pray for the best. Drop in when you can. Good luck and good hunting as they say in the sub service.

    Hello, everyone. This thing sounds interesting. I don’t know if i’m gonna join or not, but if I do, I will be using the main character from my current book. A few things you should know before I describe my character: first, the names. The names of my characters change in the book. This is not a super complicated process. So, the character are given normal names, but after they gain their powers, they choose their own names, and these second names are usually a name that Identifies what power they have.

    Second, my characters have powers. These powers are elemental powers that allow my characters to control elements of nature. My character in question is a fire.

    Ok, now that that’s out of the way, I am now ready to reveal my character.

    Blaze Elliot Phoenix was born Blake Elliot Frost to James (Commander Griffin) Frost and Sarah (Snow) Frost on the distant planet of Ninjarika, found in the Silveronian galaxy. He was born to two ices, but he was born under a blood moon, which allowed him to gain a different power than his parents. He was taken from his home when he was ten yons old (A yon is one million earth years) and he was put in a fire training base to hone his weaponry skills. After nine yons of practicing using his powers on his own, the events of my book take place, and he becomes the leader of Fireteam Alpha, an elite strike team. Fast forward seventeen yons, and we have Blaze at the time of knights, kingdoms, and castles of earth. He is now thirty-six yons old, and he still wields his fire sword. He is loyal to anyone who he finds to be trustworthy, and that loyalty is something that cannot be broken unless the person he is loyal to really does something evil. He is a natural-born leader, and he is a perfectionist. The only thing he fears is failure. He is selfless, almost to a fault. He puts himself in harms way if he knows it will save someone he trusts. He is trustworthy, honest, and he will not compromise his faith in order to gain power. He is basically the character I want to be, the character I strive to be. Anyway, that is Blaze. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    Jominkreesa. If you don't know what it means, then it's not for you.

    @arindown I love Libby! Funny, my brother and I and some friends had a Nerf war just a few days ago XD


    @thedarkninja03
    And Blaze sounds awesome! I like your naming process, too 🙂


    @ariella-newheart
    We seem to have a pretty good turnout here. Do we want to discuss making a second thread so this one doesn’t get too clogged up? And maybe moving one or two of the people who just joined over there? I’ll try to make a list in a second of everyone who’s active on here right now. That’s your call, though! 😀 If that sounds reasonable, would you mind if I was the one to actually start it, and have another of my characters in that one? Just as a self-indulgent type thing lol cause I’m really wanting to see how one of my other OCs does with this XD Feel free to say no or whatever though lol cause like I said, your call!

    @ariella-newheart

    Just counted. We have, as of Ninja and Arin joining (if @thedarkninja03 and @arindown don’t mind the nicknames 😛 ), and counting @christlover still, 9 people total. So we’re still good with the 10 character limit that was set. But yeah, another thread might be something to consider soon if we have more recruits 😉
