Happy Wednesday! Hope your middle of the week is going well so far~

I thought this would be a good chance to talk about the Saera. :) I should be able to add the information of saera to the Races page once this chapter is over!


If you can spare a dollar, please consider pitching in to help my sister save a cat she rescued. In my sister's words:


The surgery cost quite a hefty amount, but I'm sure every little bit counts. My sister is offering to do a Nemi mini-game if the kitty's surgery funds can be raised in time! So if you'd like to help save a poor kitty and get some more Nemi out of it at the same time, please consider donating. Thankyew! :D

Yep, this is the place the saera fly :D

Definitely a peaceful place. Would be a shame if some evil villains came along and attacked it now.

Usually a thing that happens in RPGs when you least expect it.

And I was just thinking that these Saera look like bird people and some bad Kijini might be following our party! :C (see page 261)
rufiangel 6th Aug 2015, 3:21 PM edit delete reply
Awww Digi~! The saera didn't do nothin' to Jaguar... yet. ;D

(jk XD)

Actually, since it always happens right after, during or before a visit by an adventuring group of players, it should be expected.

Good advice for any peaceful community of npc's: You see or hear of pc adventurers coming your way? Post additional guards!
rufiangel 6th Aug 2015, 3:21 PM edit delete reply
Now that you mention it, that's excellent advice. Don't let them anywhere near, seriously! :'D

*amused* This is what people said when I introduced the hidden village, Angora Falls. XD Why do people want to give me ideas to destroy my peaceful settlements?

*points at Kori village* comment... ^_^
rufiangel 7th Aug 2015, 12:53 AM edit delete reply
*amused* No one actually saw Kori before the Aquafall hit, though.
Lukkai 7th Aug 2015, 3:51 AM edit delete reply
Well: "Right before"?

So really: Additional guards. If the adventurers turn away, good. If they don't, stay on high alert until at least several days after they're gone. And no festival while they're in town! Now that is just asking for trouble.
rufiangel 7th Aug 2015, 5:17 PM edit delete reply
The Millenial Fair in Chrono Trigger hasn't invited too much trouble, has it? :)

(... To be FAIR, aha!)

I'm leaving this one here for any German speaking roleplayers. I know other people will not get it without an explanation:

Gauklerfest in Kunchom.

(Kunchom is a city in the world of the German rpg Das Schwarze Auge. The Gauklerfest is an annual festival for jugglers, showmen and the like in that town. Any adventure that starts with "You're in Kunchom for the Gauklerfest" will turn out to be about the worst things you can imagine.)

Ooooh I LOVE the flying people! :D Rufi Rufi Rufi this makes me want to create a Saera OC soooo baaaaaaad! X3 They are so pretty! *_*
Lukkai 6th Aug 2015, 5:43 AM edit delete reply
They're cool, but not necessarily low profile, if you know what I mean. So depending on the campaign might not be the best idea for a character.

Okay, this definitely is the roleplayer speaking out of me.

And yes, I did create a People of the Air character in Exalted.

Because winged people are cool.
rufiangel 6th Aug 2015, 3:23 PM edit delete reply
Winged people are cool! X3

Though for sure, when it comes to keeping a low-profile... well, I suppose you could disguise your wings with a massive backpack that's actually a wing-cover in disguise? :D
Lukkai 7th Aug 2015, 4:04 AM edit delete reply
My chara used a big cloak. That worked halfway decent. Good enough for anyone not taking a closer look.

Was an interesting character. Abandoned by her own kind and adopted by an influental member from Lookshy's higher families. Preferred weapon was an artefact sling.
I had way too few opportunities playing that chara.

<333 thank you Alicia, that's super kind and sweet of ya! XD I'm very happy the saera are being well-received <3 ;3;*

I'm allergic to saera... Can't get too close to their fairy dust.
rufiangel 6th Aug 2015, 3:24 PM edit delete reply
Lol! Don't worry, that's not fairy dust XD

Updrafts via song magic. Reminds me of Ar Tonelico.
rufiangel 7th Aug 2015, 12:53 AM edit delete reply
Hmm? Ar Tonelico?
CiciEnixa 6th Aug 2015, 3:45 PM edit delete reply

Also, Saeren <3 Do they have shifty-colored wings or are they just naturally purdy colorful?
rufiangel 7th Aug 2015, 12:55 AM edit delete reply
Well, in a relative sense, they are closer to Jem Citadel than they were before... XD

It's one thing to wonder, why they're not running off to Jem Citadel right now, eh? ;)

And their wings are naturally coloured like that, the colours don't shift XD; (though I wish I'd thought of that so I could change the colour of their wings every panel without caring for consistency :'D)
Saber 6th Aug 2015, 4:02 PM edit delete reply
Shouldn't there be exclamation marks above their heads? :P

As long as they don't have any rare valuables on their loot table that might tempt a certain adventurer! >.>

Saera strike me as the type to ask if what John Smith means by 'gold' is corn... XDD

Please don't hurt the pretty winged people Rufi. My RPG senses are tingling. X)
rufiangel 7th Aug 2015, 5:16 PM edit delete reply
XD Ahaha D~

They're already a pretty hurt race, as you'll see. I doubt I'll be doing much to these ones. XD;

XDDD ahahahaha Saari-niii <33333

Allow me to put together a reasonably priced saeren flight package and send you the details. Should be around 10,000 Goldra per hour, what a steal, eh? ;D
Jarvi 9th Aug 2015, 10:36 PM edit delete reply
Horrible steal :D Sooo.. how do I earn for this stuff? I'm not gonna kill things D:
