Just to be clear, your OP suggested we put some RP posts in the dome of the starry lady thread right? Looked like I was the only one there so I wanted to be sure.

right-aligned image
Natalia Von Arcotosh

Bloodline: Draconic
Age: Veneable
Role: Wise and Charismatic Face
Combat: Pure Damage Dealer
Alignment: Riding the fine border of CNChaotic Good
Skills: Bluff, Diplomacy, Knowledge: Arcana, Perception, Spellcraft

"I have been alive for far to long to deal with impatience men."


Natalia Von Arcotosh
right-aligned image

Description: Like a ghost she floated into the room. Her face was pleasant with a smile accompanied by numerous wrinkles. The black dress she wore showed very little skin. Almost symbolizing the end of that part of her life. It had no ornate designs, just simple dark silk. At the hands her the gown broke into a lattice mesh exposing her long purple gloves. They mirrored the collar's trim. Her hair was dressed down in a waving white curl, without being lost or matted. Her face was nearly lost of all pigment, yet still holding to it's faint pinkness. Her lips again matching her simple style of dark purple. Natalia's only visible possession was a large opal ring. It hue of brass and green echo'ed against itself, creating a near swirl of natural colors.

Personality: Often elderly woman are given certain characteristics. They tend to be nice with readied sweets. Natalia is not that woman. To counter, she is often ruthlessly direct. Saying what she considers needs to be said. Her sentences are constructed in thoughts long before given breath. She has a flare for the dramatic, without being overly long winded. All of this fails to cause conflict with her good-hearted nature. She may be the lady that calls your pie rubbish, but she will often be the only one to listen to your troubles till dawn.

Promise/Downfall: In her sense of confidence, she has found serenity. Which others seem to flock to. This, not her magic, is her greatest strength. Even under the pressures of dissipating arcanaic prowess, Natalia still finds energy to be the folk hero others need her to be. However, despite all this her sense of realism is warped by her past. If a difficult choice is to be made she will take on that mantle, knowing the strife and weight of haunting decisions. She bores her past, weighing it constantly. Natalia secretly devotes her thoughts to regrets, non of which she can change.


Background:
Being of noble birth, Natalia was priviliged. Some girls are forced into marrying old ugly men. She married the love of her life at twelve, to a similarly youthful boy named Klaus Arcotosh. It was an arranged marriage, one that empowered two separate houses. He had the same drive for adventure, the same love for life. The two consummated much later, when appropriate. Yet still, the pair were nearly inseparable. They played in their woods for hours, spent long nights gazing upon the stars. Even hiding in the stables together at the expense of their panicked servants. They were in love. Both had innate power over the arcane. Despite the ever fading winds of magic, they even learned from the same tutors. Always wondering how they had been so lucky.

Years past, the couple had a child naming him Varyian. A plague swept through and took Klaus' parents, leaving him the plantation. When the boy was old enough, the pair decided to travel the world. Again, the estate was passed down to the next generation, He married for love and produced an army of children.


 
DM NoteRP Note: Hope that wasn't too bleak.
Post Rate: 1 per day
Character Goals: Figure out what is draining her powers, making them unreliable.

Meta: If selected I would like to build her using primarily evocation spells, as that school didn't fail her in her time of need. I think I'd like to do the Prestige Class: Soul Warden. Lastly, I wouldn't want to play her as some new recruit. Maybe some sort of civilian specialist, or a Knight of Justice middle ranking member/leader.

Deborah Vilanni
So that my people may, once again, be proud.
left-aligned image
Deborah Villani





Name: Deborah Marie Hildegard Vilanni Rommenbach de Grasse and Bearington of Fallhold
Race: Human
Age: 17
Concept: Idealist, based on old books from the order, daughter of the corrupt imperial minister of finance
Alignment: LG
Class: Wizard (Spell Sage) 4
Combat Role: Buffer/Debuffer
Non-combat Role: Brains / Utility

Appearance

right-aligned image
Deborah in action


Deborah definitely does not look posh and noble as one would expect from her last name or from her parents (a villainous and corrupt imperial minister and his astoundingly snob wife), but something of her education still shows in the way she walks and (even if a bit) in her wording.

She is a young and not-so-tall human female with light brown hair and eyes, pale skin and thin overall features, usually sporting practical clothing and having her hands full of books, samples of some unknown substance or tools. Her gestures are gentle and feminine, her voice is soft (but her screams are terrifyingly loud and treble when she is desperate or truly scared) and she will move with grace enough to set her apart from most scholars, who usually seem clumsy.

In terms of adornments, she keeps a thin braid falling off her shoulder and a few golden chain necklaces adorn her breast. One large bronze bracelet is constantly seen around her left wrist and nothing will make her remove, save for force or the direst of situations.

Also, despite the fact that she uses her hair relatively short, a bow is usually seen on top of her head, giving her a somewhat technical or servile appearance at first glance, something that usually vanishes after a few moments of observation or conversation.

For clothing style, as already stated, she prefers practical pieces with a few decorative elements and has a tendency to use discrete colors, such as brown, black or beige, although dimmer shades of red can easily be seen on her.

In fact, it can be said that the one single thing she inherited from her mother is the taste for the change of clothes, as, most usually, people keep variety away from their closets.


Personality

left-aligned image
Even the most forbidden of tomes...


Bright in a scale of intellect, high in a scale of literacy and off of any scale of curiosity, Deborah lives, breathes and dreams of books... literally in the last case.

Her inquisitive mind simply cannot accept unanswered questions, loose ends in bodies of knowledge or hidden truth and that is what forced her into her parents' library: the pull towards answers, the need to acquire the next bit of information, the urge to unveil and expose, even if only to herself, whatever was hidden.

That is also what placed her in the dustiest par of the library: that which held the old arcane books nobody used or cared for anymore It was from those crumbling piles of paper that she added experimentation to her set of passions.

Outside the realm of intellectualism and the arcane, Deborah (or "Debbie", as she allows herself to be addressed by friends) is usually pleasant, polite and cheerful, always trying to make people comfortable and happy, constantly caring for those she cares.

Violence is not her way and not of her liking, but even being a pacifist, she understands that sometimes a blade must be drawn. It is only the reasons and the frequency that separates her from a militaristic person.

That is the main reason why she resorts to team work in order to fight, when fighting is inescapable.

Debbie does not feel comfortable with animals of any kind and will not actively engage in plays with dogs or cats, even not being truly afraid of them.


Background

right-aligned image
Her father's humble summer home


Debora Marie, as her mother calls her, was grown in her father's luxury estate, in the shore village of WetStep-South-Linbledon, a paradisiac location favored by the noble and the very wealthy merchants who could afford its high lifestyle. She did not grow in Fallhold, where her father lived, because he believed that children would distract him from his duty as a minister... and from the profitable maneuvers that he mastered with time.

She was born the youngest in a line of six children and her parents were already of relatively mature age when she came.

From her first moments, her mother, Lady Fedora Catherine Elisabeth Rommenbach de Grasse and Bearington, gave her to the servants for caring, as she was always too busy with matters of beauty and gossip. In fact, to those of some age, her mother is considered the very apex of beauty and her father the luckiest (or the most hated) of men.

left-aligned image
Lady Catherine, when younger
As she grew, her parents, following the tradition of most families, gave her to a tutor (or rather several tutors) to educate and it is remarkable that none of them actually left a significant mark in her life. Indeed, what they taught her was not what she learned, as she would learn from books, not from men.

Indeed, her older brothers and sisters, all left to their own devices and to those same tutors, almost all died or left home very early, the oldest having become pregnant from a blacksmith and then denied by the family, now living a happy life in a village nearby, only taking care not to attract too much attention and embarrass her (former) parents, who could decide to take action to get rid of the shame.

It was when she was four that she entered the manor's library for the first time and it was precisely there that the already utterly curious girl first heard that those interesting objects were called "books" and held words in their pages that could be read, if one was old enough to know how. Her desire to learn how to read was so immense that she kept staring at the books for hours, trying to make sense of the strange symbols until one of the servants, who took care of taking the dust out of the books decided to try and see if the girl could actually learn how to read, despite her age.

It took her a year, but the girl started to understand the contents of the books to the amusement of her tutors and the pride of her mother (yet only for she could tell her friends that her little girl, despite not so radiant in beauty, could do something that other couldn't).

In those old books, Deborah discovered what the Empire once was, what the ancients thought and felt, what they dreamed of and what they feared. In those books, she found ethics in all its glory, shining brighter than the Sun in face of the lack of principles she saw in her house. It might be because of her personal inclinations, it could because of the absence of reverence for her parents or even because that new reality seemed much more seductive than the one she actually lived, but the young girl held firmly to those words and, night and day, she peered through the window they opened to a past of glory and meaning, of real heroes, of knights and virtue.

With the coming of youth, he mother was intending on giving her to a temple (in fact, ANY temple...), but her father thought it would be better to place her in a university, where her taste for old paper would keep her away from trouble and could even earn her some respect, producing a daughter they could finally show off (or, at least, speak of) in a party. So, at the age of fifteen, she entered the Imperial School of History, focusing on the Old Arts.

At the university, she finally encountered a mother figure, professor Rosalyn Bennett, a researcher obsessed by the idea of bringing back the power of magic and blaming the deterioration of the Empire on the lack of stimulus caused by the fact that magical wonders could no longer be created and depended on.

So much she adhered to her teacher's ideas that she became her assistant researcher before one year at the school.

The professor was wife to a man who was well-placed among the ranks of the Knights of Justice and, because

The dome is actually the sky...
of that, had free access to the order's resources, when it came to books and laboratories. It was frequent that she would travel to Dome of the Starry Lady in order to use the place's now mingled magical resources. Whenever that happened, she would take her assistant to carry the books... and "devour" them!

A certain night, Prof. Bennett was walking by the lake, trying to make sense of her latest findings, when she disappeared from sight, never to be seen again, only leaving her old bronze bracelet behind, at a place in the lake's shore.

Deborah insisted in staying and attempting to find out what happened to her teacher, as she believed it had something to do with a magical phenomenon. For two months she stayed and investigated, but no actual conclusion could be reached. At that point, the leadership of the Knights suggested it was time for her to live.

Decided to remain and continue with her investigations, together with her extensive study of the newfound books that exposed new and formidable facts and principles of the old times of the order, Deborah protested and refused to leave. Since the knights could not simply toss the daughter of an imperial minister through the window, they offered her a position as a scholar among the knights, stationed permanently at the Dome of the Starry Lady to conduct research on the behalf of the Order... without much supervision, as the order did not actually care about anything she would be doing there.

And that is how Debbie joined the ranks of the fabulous Imperial Order of the Knights of Justice, defenders of the Empire, paragons of justice... and gluttons, and mercenaries, and unoccupied handwavers... but owners of the seed of virtue in their history and faded principles, a seed that seemed to have died those days.

assuming I was interested in playing cleric, which domains are available?

I like the idea that the powers granted a deity is not 100% predictable...

Question, if I want to play as a monk, can it be unchained or do I have to play the weaker version? Also are occult resources allowed to be used? Because I have interest in being a chakra-focused monk. Otherwise they are a ki-based caster.

I'm writing a different concept, but yes it is a basic rogue with a focus on diplomat.
