Ethaefal & Webbing

Postby Ruroc on February 17th, 2014, 3:17 pm

I am considering creating an Ethaefal Webber. An Ethaefal Drykas was technically a full-blooded Drykas at one point, and the Ethaefal do retain some memories of their past life.

At the moment, I have two questions about this combination.

1) Would an Ethaefal Drykas be able to recall the art of Webbing and begin with experience in it, provided it was significant enough for them to remember in their past life?

2) Do Ethaefal Mortal Seemings keep tattoos from past lives?

Ethaefal & Webbing

You cannot be an Eth and have webbing at the start of your play. Eth do not retain their full past life memories. They get glimpses and snatches of their past. In order for you to learn Webbing after the fall, you'd have to have been taken in by Dyrkas and taught webbing. They would NEVER do this. It is against their culture. If you'd like to play a webber, please create a full human drykas and then you'll have no issues. :)

It might be possible to find someone to teach you IC, but that'd be a really rare happening.

1. No. Never.
2. No. Never.

Ethaefal & Webbing

Goss is dead on of course regarding webbing and eths. I'm confused by your second question, however. In an attempt to clarify -- eth forms have no markings (tats, scars, whatever) from their last past life. But their alternate form of their past life can have those markings. NO GNOSIS, of course. But tats or scars are fine. Caelum has windmarks for example at night when he is in his Drykas form. Hope that helps.
