Thanks Omnii, that helped a lot to hear. I didn't mean for anyone to actually read that thing on my user page. I was testing a feature thing that shows one random option out of several you type in, and happened to be in a really, really dark place while I was doing it. Uh, I guess I'm lucky that's the one that it showed you. Others were a bit more... overt :\ Thanks for the support, though. I know I'm lucky to have such good friends. I guess I just lose track of that once in a while, and your reminder was exactly what I needed.
HIIIII goe laang. Also, if you don't mind kung keri mu can you indicate kung why may kamukha sya? sorry if my response is unlike yours huhu sabaw ang first day ng second sem :c
uy cute yun! why not and let's rp them after (bc we don't rp alot). Thank you btw! Please pray for my entrance exams din HAHAHAHA

Insert Sound Effect
It's okay. You didn't have to. I don't think it needed one? I'm glad your deattaching and relaxing is working. I don't think anyone realizes how much a small gesture to a new person actually means. He did nudge. I said maybe I'd join, twice. Next thing I know we were writing characters. Karmagician (talk) 16:13, November 22, 2017 (UTC)
We're still on for that? I thought the owl from DARP included CHB. I'm so confused. xD
edit: still i/m 11/10 game for this shit so link ur hom(o)ie up xoxo
I have a question, which I thought you'd answer best. So, I'm fairly certain I heard from someone that the gods could technically be able to procreate with anyone, regardless of the mortal's sex, since the gods could take on forms of the opposite sex. I'm not sure how true that is, though. I wanted to apply it to Donovan's history, but I don't want to make myself look like an idiot, so I figured hey, why not check in first with someone who should know?
You Never Knew
It's that, definitely. But it's something else too? Probably a whole mess of things I don't know how to name. That click is what I think a biological clock sounds like. It's really hard to ignore. I can't believe people have been here that long (or longer). It makes me feel like a kid again when long stretches of time are just too damn long to comprehend. I might pop on. I've wanted to so I'll try, When there're tons of faces and 5, 6, or 7+ people it might take me a few tries to get mentally ready for that. Karmagician (talk) 16:21, November 23, 2017 (UTC)
The Theia Bizz
Yo Omnii, just saw your message. Regarding Theia not being used, there is actually another Theia kid already - Harmony Spall. James and I just collabbed at length as he made her, to make sure her history and Nyxil's lined up. I'm open to another Theia kid being made, to a certain extent, but it's just a really obnoxious task to keep them from contradicting anything. I'll tell you a rundown of everything about Theia then, and you can decide if it's worth the effort to follow.
So Theia is in a bit of a unique situation among gods and Titans - the cosmology of Diodorus Sicilus (probably butchered that trying to type it from memory) provides a strong basis for her being a genuinely good and caring mother. In Diodorus's cosmology, the titans were originally born in a mortal form and only became gods after death. Theia's children Helios and Selene were murdered, and Theia was so griefstricken that she basically went insane. She wandered off into a thunderstorm after spouting prophecies of doom about the people who killed them, claimed that she was going to be reunited with her children in divinity, got killed by a lightning bolt, and ascended to godhood.
Now, obviously Diodorus Sicilus's cosmology isn't the one used on the wiki, but I used it as inspiration when filling in the gaps in canon. In actual canon, she has three kids: Helios, Selene, and Eos. However, both Helios and Selene faded in the Riordan-verse due torelative obscurity in later generations, and their roles being passed along to other figures.
Come the present day according to Nyxil and Harmony's histories, Theia herself is fading as well. About fifty years ago she hit it off with a demititan and had a son, Dale. But Dale couldn't accept being a "half-blood freak of nature that shouldn't exist", tracked down his mother, and got her to perform a rite that locked away his powers and effectively made him mortal. Then Dale unknowingly hooking up with Nyx and had a demigod son of his own, Nyxil. When Dale realized his son was a freak of nature too, he was outraged. He abandoned a six-year-old Nyxil without a second thought. So Nyxil grew up alone in the mountains outside the town he was born in. He only survived at all because of Theia. She ignored Zeus's rules against direct intervention, trusting that her fading status would keep her from getting caught, and appeared to Nyxil frequently when he was young and alone. Perhaps because of her pain at losing Helios and Selene, Theia was one of the only immortals to truly care about her mortal children. Nyxil was only her granson, but she cared about him all the same. She guided him frequently. She explained his parentage and the mythic world, gifted him weapons, and helped him survive. Over the years, though, her visits grew rare. She was fading, and knew that it was only a matter of time before she was too weak to appear to him. Instead, she created a wolf from light and had it watch over her grandson in the mountains.
By the time Nyxil found his way to camp at age 16, he hadn't seen her in several years. A few months after arriving, he learned the vows of priesthood and immediately pledged himself to Theia. Ever since, he's concerned himself with her safety above all else. He and the wolf, Daybreak, have devoted themselves to finding a way to stop her from fading completely.
Back when Nyxil was still in the mountains, Theia had told him on several occasions that he - and his father, before he died in a housefire - was her only mortal descendant, and that that was why she doted on him so much. In truth, she actually did have a daughter, Harmony Spall. Harmony was born mere months before Nyxil was abandoned. She quickly realized that she wouldn't have the energy visit both of them, so she made the hard decision to prioritize helping her grandson. As Nyxil grew up and started to understand his grandmother's situation, Theia came to understand that he would stop at nothing to save her. She had already accepted her fate. She was prepared to leave this world, and see if something lied yet further beyond where she might get to see Helios and Selene again. The thought of Nyxil wasting his life on such a tragic task for her sake devastated her, and though she couldn't keep him from trying, she could stay quiet about Harmony's existence. She knew that if Nyxil discovered her, then they would both try that much harder. Instead, she didn't tell him about her daughter.
For the past few years, Theia has been so weak that Nyxil's direct telapathic link to her has felt empty. However, for the past few months, he and his wolf (Daybreak) have begun to sense another aura - something that feels distinctly like Theia. That something was Harmony, who found a place at the Spire. Pretty soon Nyxil will track her down to the Spire, and when he learns that Theia has a daughter fighting with the CoO to bring her back, he might join up as well.
So yeah, fitting in a history to not contradict with the timeline of events from Harmony and Nyxil's stuff, and to match the motivations Theia has had throughout their stories, yada yada, and also to not mess up plots with Nyxil being able to sense Theia kids and only sensing one at the Spire... would be very tricky and obnoxious.
I went stalking
Ok, I just saw the doc about your Theia kinda char. If you give me a rundown on how you wanted Harmony be connected, so I can see if it fits and if it doesn't, I can always try to think of ways to get around it.
Yeah, Nyxil is 22 currently. I've mostly stuck to the birthday April 1st 1995 for him, if only because it's right after the date I joined the wiki, which makes it convenient to keep track of. It's coincidentally also the aniversary of the wiki's creation. He was six when he got forced out, so that'd mean Theia first started appearing to him in 2001. Since Harmony winds up at the CoO shortly after her 17th birthday, then theoretically we can just use the date of her claim to work out her age. Unfortunately somebody must've been really off their game because James made her claim page in February, but didn't get checked and approved until July. Huh. Her birthday is somewhere between February and July of 2000 then. The year before Theia first starts appearing to Nyxil.
... I've had this typed up in an edit page in a random tab for days. I have so many tabs open usually that I can't even see the icons. My bad :c
You're right tbh!!
Like I based it off the BC claiming so the most you need to do is just leave a note at the bottom saying it needs to be approved by a councilmen (though if you really want stuff claimed and shit, you can always use Kingston's template.)
Gold Soul long overdue

Beep bloop I am (not) Groot
Aaaaaaaaaaaa Omniverse my MTCDLNGIT this is so thorough and there's honestly not much more I can say about this! Solid plan, though it would certainly be a big change to the wiki, so it'll take a while to clear this with the other users. A couple of things below:
- How exactly would users RP The Affecteds figuring out Variations for their powersets? Since RPs are typically between 2 people, would this mean that the character would only be able to develop new powers by grabbing a buddy and practicing with them? Is there a precedent for doing single-person training RPs (e.g. a single user RPing a single character practicing archery in the arena alone)? If you want to have your character develop the power in-character but not have to fill a RP forum by yourself, it might be more efficient just to write a description of your character's thought process/training methods and attach it to your application for making a new Variation. When the admins/powerset makers check it, they can read the description and see if it's valid right there in the application, which would streamline the approval process.
- "Some variations can save one character's life, but severely impair another's fighting style." What do you mean by this? I'm just confused by the wording
- How do we keep track of Variations? Should there be some kind of forum or template (like the Cabin Counselors tracker except a separate template, 'cuz the counselors may change, but once a Variation is developed, it remains)? Should they be added to the bottom of the existing powersets in a new section (might be confusing for new users tho)? We'll need a unified way to keep track of Variations.
- How do we differentiate between creative uses of the existing powerset and full-on new Variations of a powerset? For example, if an Astraeus kid makes a plasma sword using their Offensive 1, it's assumed that they can control the plasma's shape and color (e.g. one day they make a purple lightsaber-esque sword, another day they make a golden broadsword). Would this be considered a Variation or just part of the powerset? If the latter's the case, then the Iris kids having signature colors idea (which I am a giant fan of btw) wouldn't technically be a Variation, just a creative application of their powerset, right?
- About only letting the Heads and Lts make Variations among campers... I understand that this change would be an incentive for users to keep/care about their counselor positions, which I am all for! However, since you've paid a lot of attention to in-character development and applications of this change, I find it a bit unfair for users who have non-counselor characters that canonically train hard to improve their powers. For example, Toxy's character Nyxil has spent a lot of time outside of Camp honing his powers, so in-character it would make sense for him to develop Variations. However, since he isn't a counselor, he wouldn't be able to make any. Should there be a way for extremely active users with hardcore trainer/fighter characters to get credit for their own Variations instead of passing them through a counselor?
I like this idea because it gives our powerset makers an ongoing role in the wiki's development and keeps things interesting! (Also I'm super-flattered that A) you took the time to read Rory's history and B) his little spiel about how lame campers are was actually able to inspire someone to create something)
Anywhoooooooo I gotta study for 2 tests and finish 1029479325 lightyears of homework (you can interpret that either as me erroneously using lightyears as a unit of time or as me having so much homework that it spans 1029479325 lightyears across the universe) and catch up on some sleep. Please keep me updated with this idea of yours! I'd love to see it become a reality on this wiki :D

Totally not a robocaller I swear I'm not here to sell you insurance
My dearest MTCDLNGIT,
(I know u also stalk edits and have probably seen the other messages I've left by now, but even though the format is similar, the personal message remains! :D) Haven't heard from you in a while, so I just wanted to check up with how you're doing. Is school going alright? Have you had any more near incidents of bombardment by cosmic pineapples launched by the long-extinct origami crane civilization in Cassiopeia? Has anything exciting happened recently? Chat's been pretty quiet as of late, but if you wanna chat, hmu at my email (I think you have it) or on my talk page!

Hi! Character Page
Hi! Sam here! I have a character, Sadie Anis, that I’m working on. I think she’s done and am waiting for her to be claimed. She has not been yet, so I am wondering if she has been looked at yet at all. Also if there are any problems with the page. Two people contacted me with problems about my character that I tried to fix, but since then I have had no comments. I also asked someone about age, and they didn’t answer, so I’m asking you. Originally I had my character be 15 when she gets to camp, because I read on a page that most people Roleplay between the ages 15 and 21. Then someone said that 15 would be to old for them to get to camp. I said I could change it if necessary, and make her 13 when she arrives. Is the age they get to camp different then the age they are when you Roleplay? Also, do characters age every year, or will they always be the age you made them as? If the first thing I do in Roleplay is have her walk into her cabin for the first time, would that mean she would still technically be 13 when I start, even though I want her to be 15? Please let me know! Thanks! (My character page) https://camphalfbloodroleplay.fandom.com/wiki/Claiming:Camp/Sadie_Anis Samirah ara(Talk) 20:57, July 29, 2019 (UTC)Samirah ara
