IGN ExplorerEze IRP NAME Alfonso Trastamara SKYPE [email protected] (yo yo yo) TIME ZONE US Central IRP RACE Human (farfolk) In was a cold day in winter when Alfonso Trastámara, a simple man, could be seen trudging in the snow from the Tahn Docks to the Gates of Adelburg. A random man in the snow? How is that interesting to any? To understand, we must go long before this incident, around 6 years ago. I, Alfonso, spent years exploring the practical basis of alchemy, magic, religion and matter. For years, I lived a simple life in Adelburg as a bartender and city guard. In my small apartment in Adelburg, I experimented with various substances and liquids. Combining my scientific work with academic research, the basis of my research was set and formulated. Devising many new hypothesizes and theories, I felt I needed more space to perform experiments. I moved to the Island of Asul on my family's estate. There, aside from living alongside my family, I spent time working on my experiments. Not living too far away from Adelburg, I would arrive there once in a while to maintain my apartment, study in the library, and work in the tavern for money. I aimed discover more about the mythical atom, the inter-molecular forces that give matter its general properties, and the interactions between substances through chemical reactions to form different substances. I explored the scientific method of experimenting and rational thinking. Aside from this, I believed magic and religion could perhaps play parts in alchemy and the physics of the world. I found it necessary clearly defeind the line between magic and science, for a practical basis must be applied to find the truths of society rather through simple lore and belief. e
As an alchemist, I am looking for more expansion and explanations about the other "scientific" and metallic parts of alchemy. Alchemy, I feel, is lacking on lore concerning metals. A huge goal of alchemy is the transmutation of lead into goal, and finding the Philosopher's stone, while the server is much more oriented toward potions-making, the elixir of life, and nature. Don't get me wrong, those parts of alchemy are essential and worth it (how else would we make potions and drinks?) but at least some sort of more information - or lore or something - on transmutation, the philosopher stone, metals, and chemical reactions would make it better. My character, for example, is much more interested in turning lead into gold than creating the elixir of life. I'm not saying that transmutation it has to be possible, but it would be nice to flesh out the philosopher's stone and metallic aspects more. Currently, blacksmithing and metallurgy is the only way I can learn about metals, etc, and I can''t really sadly consult alchemist lore for that. Alchemy was the medieval forerunner of chemistry ... so

In-Character Information Character’s name: Alfonso Trastámara (Full name: Alfonso López Horen-Trastámara y Ivrea) Character’s sex: Male Character’s race: Human (predominately Farfolk, and a mixture of Heartlander and Highlander) Character’s age: 37 Biography: Personality Traits: (what are your character's quirks?; habits?; likes and dislikes?) Ambitions: Short Term: Alfonso Trastámara wishes to establish himself on safe footing and adapt to his new life. He wishes to set up a steady income, and find a new home in Adelburg. Long Term: Alfonso wishes to explore the practical basis of alchemy, magic, religion and matter. It is necessary to discover more about the mythical atom, the inter-molecular forces that give matter its general properties, and the interactions between substances through chemical reactions to form different substances. He also wishes to explore the scientific method of experimenting and rational thinking to help in what he considers the pseudoscience of alchemy. Magic and religion could perhaps play parts in alchemy and the physics of the world, which, Alfonso wishes to pioneer and make advancements. However, it is important to know not everything is simply magic, and a practical basis must be applied to find the truths of society rather through simple lore and belief. Tinkering, or what he likes to call Engineering, is important in the advancement of society. To advance society, he insists it is necessary to know what it is and differentiate between magic, religion, and true facts. A lost man can not enlighten others, so it is important for society to advance in sciences and be open-minded to knowledge. In summary, Alfonso embarks on a journey to discover the world, specifically chemistry, physics and composition through alchemy, magic, religion, and matter. Strengths/Talents: [+] Wise - Alfonso is a wise man and has great knowledge in various subjects. Although he did not get a education in a real school, his father thought him Alchemy and Engineering. His father's words of wisdom would enlighten him. He can be considered intelligent as well, but wise fits him better because he shows experience, knowledge, and good judgment. He would learn more about philosophy, religion and history independently. He can not be considered totally intelligent in all subjects, but overall wise. His wisdom guides him, helps him understand, and make him make good decisions. [+] Compassionate - Alfonso is compassion, and morally righteous. He cares for everyone, and is not one to neglect, abuse, or hurt another. As a religious man, compassion comes naturally for him. His religion, father, mother, and philosophy all shaped him into a compassion man. [+] Fit - Alfonso is a fit and healthy man. He maintains a good diet, which was passed on through his mother. He also exercises regularly, believing it good for the mind and soul. His family traditions of a noble, knightly man further inspires him to maintain in good shape. Although his father is no longer alive and he does not need to prove himself to him no more, being healthy and fit comes naturally to him and it is tough for him use to lay around and be lazy, provoking him to become slothful and sin. Weaknesses/Inabilities: [-] Complicated - Alfonso overly complicates things, which is a great weakness and hindrance. He can not follow his heart, but must use his brain first to think before what he is doing, which by then, it could be too late. A simple and humble life is best, because a complicated mindset will stress the individual out. By overly complicating the simplest of things, he can confuse, mislead, and chase away the average man. [-] Silent - Alfonso is more closer to socially inept, but to be specific, it is his silence. Growing on farm for most of his with limited human interaction besides family, Alfonso lacked the social skill. Trying to adapt to civilized life, he finally decided to be silent instead of awkward. However, his silence in some cases is awkward. He makes having a hearty conversion with him very difficult, as he likes to keep to himself and response with short answers, largely because he just doesn't know how to response and have a conversion with someone. [-] Perfectionist - Alfonso is a bit of a perfectionist. Nothing too extreme, but it might annoy some that his ideas of a person are perfectionist and that he himself aims to become the most perfect person. His causes some sort of minor pride, ego, and selfishness, but his compassion always erases it and reminds him to stop these sins. He must remember to be humble, as his father and mother taught him, although his perfectionist ways always cause a internal conflict inside him.
