Hello world.

Postby Benacer on February 21st, 2010, 5:45 pm

My name is Fábio, though I rarely am called by my name in the Internet (mostly because I rarely reveal it in the first place). I am 20 years old. I've had several different aliases already, thus I am used to being called for different and unusual names. You may call me Fábio, Benacer, whichever you prefer.

I admit I don't have that much experience when it comes to writing/role playing, but I've always wanted to give it a serious try. I've tried role playing in MMORPGs, though it never ended up well, plus such games have certain limitations and are much faster paced, hence I found it better to look for a place like this in which we can write and elaborate on our stories a little more.

I found Mizahar by looking for a good play-by-post role playing forum through Google. When searching I stumbled upon several other interesting webpages, but Mizahar caught my attention the most for the large amount of lore and for trying to bring a new alternative to the fantasy genre, by avoiding the already overused themes. I have been reading the wiki for the past couple days to grasp as much as I can to start playing, though I guess I still have to study the lore some more to get started. Every single page on the wiki gets me more and more excited about getting started already! :)

I still haven't decided about most of my my character's story, but I already have a few main ideas and concepts in mind. And I am of course trying to come up with a nice avatar, seeing as most of you have such amazing character portraits, unrivaled by anything I could design myself, as I am unable to start drawing anything of the sort from scratch. I really have no idea on how to find a good one, so any suggestions are always welcome. :D

English is not my first language, though from reading the other introduction threads it seems like I am not the only non-native speaker here. :) Although I have been practicing my English in the past years, it is still somewhat flawed, and I may commit a few mistakes here and there when writing, which won't be a big problem, I hope.

Aloha Fábio! It is a pleasure to meet you and welcome to Mizahar.

deviantart is a good place to brows for character pics, Avis, etc. Just make sure you get the artist's permission if they require it. (some do, some don't). There are also quite a few photoshop savvy members who you could ask for help modifying anything you find

Aloha,
Mika

Hi there! I guess I'm not the only one putting language disclaimers in their introductions :D.

Oh, thanks for the tip. I will browse Deviantart a little bit, I know there are great artists there who could help. I can handle editing them with photoshop to some extent, the real problem would be finding a base picture to start with. I will see what I can get on deviantart. :)

Oh, I realized that! There is so much involved on creating a character, and I find it most enjoyable. I definitely don't intend to rush it, I will try to think everything through. And I find it amazing how Mizahar's system gives a lot of opportunities for us to express our creativity on this field.
