It is kind of annoying when the end of every sentence has an Exclamation point!

You know what I mean!

It is a little tiresome after awhile!

But you already know that I'm sure!

RL This is nice and all but If the teams want a private training thread for their team alone, then I think thats what should be done.

Well the way I see it is, noobs teaching noobs is counter productive. If everyone trains in here then the more experienced users and give them advice and show people the right way.

Cute Devil says:

"so what do I do know Gambler?"

Hahaha, first thing, remeber to have fun :P I'll set up the fight.

Gambler vs Cute Devil

After a short talk with the leader of the Vine Villains, Gambler slowly walked out of the massive castle. The cold night air heightened his senses and soon his eyes caught the shadow of a young women.

Without hesitation the Cajun unsheathed his sword in anticipation. Not many people where brave enough to stroll up to the gates of the VV castle. Fewer still survived to tell the tale. With a twinkle in his eyes and his trademark smirk on his face he asked,

"Tis not nice to lurk around in dee shadows. State your business."

"You should not judge me too be so nice"

Cute Devil closes her eyes and Cute Devil responses by lifting up her sword and pointed it straight at the door and her eyes turned pitch black with a little red dot in the middle.

"I want to enter and destroy the mightiest foes!"

((Not bad at all for a first post Cute Devil. As you get more comfortable you'll be able to stretch your posts out. Perhaps adding more detail. Grammar and punctuation are also things you will pick up along the way. Nice first post though))

Gambler couldn't help but smile, it had been a long time since someone had brought the fight to the VV. His eyes sharpened as the stranger pointed her blade at the door of the castle. Quickly Gambler began to twirl his sword. After planting his left foot behind him took off towards Cute Devil in an all out sprint.

Weaving from side to side as he closed in, he took to the air flipping over and landing behind the intruder. Without looking, he thrust his sword backwards towards Cute Devil's mid-section.

If I may expand on that.

You don't need to stay in one area. Feel free to describe your surroundings. If your fighting in the City, feel free to expand the fight area. Take the fight to different areas and add to the atmosphere. You don't need to attack simply because your opponent did. Keep them on there toes. But that will all come as you get use to the basics.

Gambler just smiled as CD threatened VV and she was thinking that he might be up too something. She opens her eyes and the next she sees is Gambler jumping in the air behind CD with a sword thrusting to stab her in the back.

(THOUGHT: I have too get out off this situation quickly as possible)

As the blade thrust it stops, CD is using her Psionic powers too stop the blade while its still in Gamblers hand.

CD then reaches her left hand in the air snaps her fingers and a black light off electric comes speeding down on Gambler, with CD keeping a straight face the whole time.

((Does that makes sense? Instead of saying "Cute Devil is using her powers" you would say, "Cute Devil used her powers" don't worry your doing fine. I hope this isn't putting you off Rpgs. Its really simple once you get the basics down. You've got most off it already."))
