PostSubject: Rydelus' Mount, Arjax   Tue May 10, 2011 12:32 am

The domesticated mountable lions called Leona, are staple mounts of generals and commanders of the Arkose Army. They are twice the size of regular lions, and are twice as vicious. But are extremely loyal to their owner. more will come just visualize Rydelus riding a massive lion. Epic.

The name is scheduled to change but whatever.

The Leona are an ancient breed, having been around since the creation of Silica, these beasts were the top land predator, usually only rivaled by the ancient dragons inhabiting the mountains of Turast. These beasts usually feed on horses or small game. The leona live long loves, usually living somewhere between 120 to 150 years old. They only recently became domesticated around 100 years ago, now being used as mounts and carriage steeds, they are a very reliable and loyal breed. There only a few wild Leona plaguing the Countryside of Silica, the last band of un-domesticated breed, they are exceptionally ferocious and savage, and The Leona Trainers have given up all hope to ever catching them.

Leona are said to be superstitiously known for both good and bad luck. A Leona seen at sunrise is said to bring the seer good luck all month, while seeing a Leona at night is said to bring death, or horrible illness.

Arjax, is Rydelus' personal female Leona, having received one when he first gained General. Since then, Arjax has had over 15 years of service with Ryde, having seen over 200 battles, she is a battle hardened Leona with protective metal armor made specifically for Arjax. She has saved Ryde's Life countless times, and Ryde has also saved her. Since the loss of Brynn, Arjax has become one of the only things Ryde has cared for so much. Arjax is his Partner, Arjax is his Friend.

Soso word on the street is shawn can't take a joke, I was never gonna make it alhk or whatevers sizee. The same size as those magic the gathering lions. And if I can't make it magic resistant. Then there is specially made armor for it,the armor is slightly magic resistant then. Btw next time you shoot someones idea down, don't jsut say no. Actually add some critique to it. Just saying no is just SOOOOOOO helpful right?

why you trying to be like shawn and i and have a pet?

and i still think that magic resistant armor is stupid. In fact resistances of any kind are stupid. In reality magic resist is just a d&d thing that works well on paper! It doesn't work in this kind of free form combat where nothing is governed by armor class, spell power or resistances. This is raw, unrefined story.

If i set your lion on fire, it still burns. Its fur catches flame, and it still hurts. The armor may be ok, but its still goling to hurt.

If someone froze Dyllan in a block of ice, his resistance don't do shit to stop it. He gets frozen.

If you stab Daeden with a magically enchanted sword, it still makes a wound, he still bleeds an d it still hurt a shit ton!

The list goes on. Magic resistance in RP is the equivalent to the cake in portal. A LIE!

I think magical resistances would work, it doesn't have to be a to a particularly high degree, just either A, reducing severity of attack or B, reducing the pain to it- my personal suggestion is to allow it, except to just only a few things and very toned down
