All right! Make it happen, world! I know I'd play!

Username: Hebishadow (Hebi as character name)
Class: Spellcaster
Power: Ophiuchus

Weapon: Snakes
Sub-weapon: Hidden Dagger

Skills:
Snake Summoning
Malleable Body

Shed-Form a new body inside of the current one, and crawls out from the old body's mouth, disabling status effects.
Curse-By sacrificing some HP, any opponent's attacks do equal damage to the opponent.
Illusion-Opponent frozen, gains Fear status (if something like that exists).
Intrusion-Enter an opponent's body for a small time, taking control of them.
Thousand Snakes-A huge amount of snakes come from within Hebi's mouth, restraining opponents and dealing damage.
Eye of the Predator-Gains a damage bonus on a selected opponent, effect ends when damaged by another opponent.
Massive Summon-Summons a huge snake as a pet, in return for half of Hebi's current HP. Snake has triple the sacrificed HP, so it is good to use in the beginning of a battle.
Bite-Stretch out Hebi's neck to bite the opponent, draining their HP slowly. Effect ends when damaged.

Appearance: Average Male shape. Medium height, long pale gray hair. Skin is pasty and pale, almost light blue, extremely smooth, without wrinkles. Eyes are dark green, with snake-slits as pupils. Wears a black robe with a red snake pattern wrapping around it. Glove-less, wears several rings, silver with various black patterns. Straw sandals on feet.

Personality: Quite avid with roleplaying, not so much as Nylock, but close enough. Hebi is very studious, looking to understand the whole world as a whole. He lets off an eerie aura, only strengthened by the fact that many attacks involve him stretching out limbs or spewing things from his mouth. He enjoys reading and lore, and absolutely hates hackers, doing his best to put them in their place. Quite shaky with the good/evil thing, preferring to sit on the sideline of morality, holding an ideal that the world belongs to the one who takes the initiative, and such things as moral decisions are for the weak and indecisive.

Playability: Hebi is very suited to single combat, due to his powers being focused on single targets. Also, he relies on powerful moves in order to end battles quickly, as many of his effects require him to sacrifice his own health.

Stats: Low on speed and strength, but high magic power and an exceptional endurance, to make up for the large loss of HP that comes with his powers.

I'll come in a while with art of Hebi. I'm away from any kind of way to draw digitally, but once complete, I'll post.

MAN, I WANNA PLAY NOW!

I thought this, as per usual, was a wonderful masterpiece.

In addition, I was wondering how much support there would be for a pen and paper RPG system for TOME. I have some experience in d20 systems, and others, so I may be willing to craft said system. However, I would rather not if there isn't at least some support for it.

So, how many of you would actually use a system, were it built?

Hehe... What I wouldn't do to play such a game. Wish it were real.

Username : AceOfShades
Class : Spellcaster
Power : Gambling

Weapon : Hidden Blade
Subweapon : Cards

Skills :
Basic Hidden Blade Attack
Basic Card Throw

Card Defense - Summon a Card and Use it to guard attacks from the front
Party Defense - Summon Cards and use them to guard attacks for the party except for me
Party Shuffle - Randomly switch Positions of players affected after using Party defense
Card Reading - Summon a card before any player with random effects
Card Door - Summon a card and use it (like a door) to transport anywhere within a battlegrid. If not in a battlegrid, anywhere within TOME. Hidden Blade can be used together with this skill.
Deal - Summon a deck of cards to quickly randomly target enemies or one specific enemy. Has a chance to activate Card reading.

Appearance :
Pale, thin and tall. Brushed-up black hair with graying highlights. A long, black trenchcoat buttoned only once at the middle, revealing a ruffled tunic, with ruffles on the cuffs, fur on the collar. Black slacks and long Black dress shoes.

Personality :
A confident outgoing party person. The type that everyone wants to be with. A pickup artist who knows how to deal with guys, girls and crowds. He sets himself as the prize, thinking that TOME is a dating game(humor intended).

Stats : Balanced, with a tendency to increase luck before all others.

I already drew the character, but if TOME could really provide a better look then ok.

TOME is just awesome. Anyone who has ever played an MMO should watch it.

They WILL LOVE IT SO MUCH TO DESIRE IT TO BE AN ACTUAL GAME! I know I do :)
