Info on skills will be on your character sheet and shown upon leveling up and aquiring a new skill. NOT EVERYONE WILL GAIN A NEW SKILL ON THE SAME LEVEL AS ANOTHER. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

You may Dual Class the instant you level to level 2, but be warned. Skills rely on levels, and the max is 100. Every class, advanced or normal, have a 100th Level Skill of uniqueness. Be warned with Dual Classing, with your amazing set of skills, you will not gain the most powerful. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Standing alone in the waiting room, the blue-haired youth sat waiting to see if any other young adventurers would arrive to take hold of the challenge known as "The Ancient Cave". Youth? Nah, he looked around eighteen to twenty-seven, but he didn't seem that young!

The Ancient Cave underwent minor changes over the years. Level 1, No Spells, No Equipment besides a minor set given to you. He was already set up for this journey.

-Anything after these are your stat with boostings. Make your own base stats but keep them on par with my own/with your characters growth rates. Don't be stupid. A wizard will NOT have 200 STR or 1000 INT at level 1.

This Roleplay, for combat, requires you not come on the boards for five minutes and leave. Combat will take weeks to finish then! Please try to dedicate more time, like I am, to this board!

Updates (June 23rd)

Added MP to Spells

Added MP to skills.

Added Classes to weapons/armor who may use. MS for Magic Swordsman, W for Warrior, etc..

Added a Bow for the list of newbie weapons.

Added IP Gauge and Skills. Skills are aquired through Items/Scrolls found in the dungeon. Every character is allowed ONE Unique Skill they may bring into the Dungeon.

Added a new monk skill at level 1, Dual Wield.

Changed my mind. Just post your character sheet, AKA Stats and Equipment. I'll handle Skills/Magic and will reply it. If you have any special skills/magics/IP requests, post them with your sheet. I'll consider it.

Please try to keep all the RP info in one post. Thanks. -DBAM

Because this isn't an official RP, I'm going to close this for now, but this may be reopened once we decide to go with it. Hopefully that's okay with you.

(BTW: Posting to get people to post doesn't really help. :P)
