Well, Eruraina's definitely got some traits of a Mary-Sue--strikingly beautiful, unusual marks, uncommon weapons/armor <=also a trait of a Mary-Sue (in this case, the mithril vest, because that's really rare--in this case, it seems like copying from Frodo).

Now, I know this is for SG's characters, but I'm going to make another comment on Eruraina, in this case, it's about the timing.

Eruraina wrote:
She traveled and helped in all the battles of the War of the Rings. From then on her History matters were the rpg is set...


That is impossible, since several battles occurred at the same time (in the North and in the South). But that's just when I get really, really picky. It's not that big of a deal.

hm... *looks back over character* I never said anything about her being strikingly beautiful... I never mentioned the mithrim vest in any rpg... so I guess I can get rid of that... and the last part about the battle, I guess you're right I shall change that too... I like criticism(sp?)... it lets me know what I should change if it doesn't make sence or anything... hm... mind looking over my other characters? *grins* I've got a thread for them, but they'r only on the first two pages at the moment! *wishes she could delete some of the now useless posts*

:lol: Its fine, Aerandir! And thanks for the feedback! And yes... I agree that my both my Eragon charrie and my.... Other 'dragon rider' are QUITE MS, but... I honestly couldn't think of any dragon-y type names that wern't... Pet-type names. And really, I am kinda embarrassed by the Eragon one. I would change it (and probably will, later) But I don't want to bug Sam the Brave about changing my by bio, as he/she ( :confuzzled: ??? ) already has alot to do.

ANYWAY... Thanks for the comments on Aearion! Actually, now that I think about it, he was my very first LotR charrie to write out... But if its not to selfish, I think he's quite good myself. I like 'im too. :D

*sigh* And yes, I have to admit, many of my charaters are not that original... Many of the ones that are either random, or some of my first to come up with here. *coughTynelcough* And the way I RPed them..... PLEASE don't read my old RPG posts... they make me want to run and hide, then make me feel sick.... ugh.......

Lol, SG. You shoud've read my first RP posts (well, they weren't really bad, but I did a lot of powerplaying and stuff). 'Course, you'd have to go to another forum and back up four years to find them, but....

hm... my first posts ever were in lotr-rpg section... Eruraina was my very first ever character... hm... got any good dragon names, SG? I'm sure I can think of a good one... I came up with Orlinos, which I think is a good dragon name... lol...

SG, do you have a trademark for your characters? Like something they all have in common? Mine is they're all redheads....

Most of mine have black hair. And they're all guys.

Hmm... Trademark? Eh... Probably that they all have the same sense of humor, if nothing else. And although I have a couple girls, all my characters are guys... I hate to say I'm horrible at acting out girls. Even though I am one.

I'm not bad at acting out guys, but I always add a fimanine touch to them, that shouldn't be there when I do play them. I'm better at playing the tomboy female! (I refuse to play girly girls!)

Thats just it - I would play a tomboy-ish girl, but it seems a bit MS to me, and its much more natural (in a medieval setting) for men to act that way. So, its easier for me to play guys.

EDIT: btw, got all the Charries I didn't bother posting up here up! :P

Yeah, I know, but I'm not one to play a good male... like, once I played a female disquised as a male during a civil war rpg, that was okay, because there was some slight femanine to it, but was still boyish enouph it was comfortable for me... (I actually get a little... uncomfortable in girlygirl settings...)

Hmmm.... Haven't seen this page in a while. I think I REALLY need to revise some stuff. Not to mention start joining/making RPGs again. I haven't done one in FOREVER.

Ai, Elbereth, how long has it been since I updated this thing?!?! Well, I think I must revise it. Yes, I think that is the best way to go... *REVAMP*
