Hadn't thought about music...

...for the boss battle yet, tbh. I do like all of the choices that Rer put out there, though. I can totally see the Parasite Queen track as fitting for Adedre. Kind of liked this one, too, but I've only been looking for a minute.

I was pondering that one too

With the track from Bravely Default/Second, I probably associate it most with Morgana's puppets in combat just because they are unnerving, and so are the bosses that showed up with that music in that game...

I mean... just look at these

Bleeeh

Creepy! And that miniboss song is perfect. Creepy and destructive!

And the more I think about it...

... the more I can't help but think just how appropriate the track I'm picking for the major encounter against Morgana is named "A Beautiful Song"...

Yes!

I need to play Nier. It looks fun, I keep hearing it's fantastic, and clearly the soundtrack is as well.

Random middle of the night character concept

Suddenly receiving a feel for a kazari shaman/priestess over here... Even if Khr'a and Rrowl aren't listed in the Audalis deities section

And now I can't help but wonder what Ch'dau would feel seeing another Kazari on this side of the reefs...

Yay for halfdream delirium

Ch'dau would be floored...

...and quite possibly overjoyed to see someone from home! 

And I'd definitely be interested in seeing your interpretation of a Kazari Khr'dun (shaman).

While Khr'a, Rrowl, and Keziri aren't officially listed amongst the Audalis Pantheon, there is some information about them in the Capasha - Audalis thread in the Common Room. Or, you can check out the Of Capasha and the Kazari "sourcebook" on Google Docs. Basically the same info as in the thread, but also contains some additional notes, half formed ideas, and stream of consciousness stuff.

Also, don't forget the beta version Kazari Name Generator in case you need name ideas.

O_O

Caaaaaaan't wait for this! A Rer kazari shaman? I am oooon board

I sort of had kazari on the brain yesterday too. Not to that degree, but I just finished another Kithy background piece and it got me thinking about how much I enjoy Ara-past posts, and wishing we had more glimpses of Ch'dau's past. I'm jonesing for some Capasha life snippets 

No pressure

Oh, I think I can arrange something.

I've been thinking about some Ch'dau background posts, myself, lately. Got a few ideas sketched out but nothing that's really post worthy as yet. The one idea that's really intriguing me at the moment is probably Ch'dau's first encounter with magic... I'll see if I can't get some work done toward that, today.

Also, since I just noticed I hadn't included this little tid-bit in the "Magic" section of the Capasha/Kazari stuff - Most magic users on Capasha are Druidic in nature, an arcane spell caster is extremely rare, but there are a few. Most notably in the current time frame would be Khatun Kalani of the Blessed Claw clan.

Yeeeesssssss! ^_________^

And that's neat about the magic and magic users--I've been running my little Halfling druid in an IRL game for almost a year and I love her, so I'm preeeetty partial to druids anyway. That they're the major magic users in Capasha is just *chef's kiss* awesome.

Excited to see the world through little Ch'dau-y eyes!

Well...

...Kazari are nature lovers by design, really, so, as I was expanding on the race, I decided that arcane magic users weren't really the best fit for the culture/society. Druidic leanings, though, seemed perfect for those who weilded "K'hra's Gift." Khr'dun are typically highly respected amongst their clans and serve primarily as advisors to their khan/khatun but also function as the clan's healer and warden of the clan's range(s).

Now, those Kazari that do lean more toward the arcane are also respected but, unlike the druidic sort, this respect comes mostly out of fear and awe. Arcane spellwork, in most cases, is viewed, at best, as "unnatural" by the cat-folk; at worst, it's considered dishonorable... "Why would you fireball an enemy from fifty feet away when it would bring you greater honor to engage him/her face to face and paw to paw?"... "We are warriors, not wizards!" ...That kind of thing.

Hmm

Two schools that strike me as potentially compelling in that kind of a culture are Conjuration and Illusion. The former in the case of a person like an arcane smith, where the magic facilitates the craft of tools and weapons, and the latter as lore keepers and story tellers...

And onto an aside wherein I share the image captured in a half-dream... an older Kazari woman looking out of her tent at night, looking up at the moon-less sky; "Hrm, Khr'a sleeps..." she whispers, "I wonder, what is it that Khr'a dreams of this time? ... Best for one to be quiet this night..." and she carefully steps onward, leaving her camp to search for certain plants that are easier to find at night, or ones that hide from Khr'a's right eye, her ears twitching at every sound in the stillness around her as she forages...

I'm actually rather fond of races like Kazari. But usually they're not playable

See there?

I'm even more intrigued, now! You've got the "feel" for a khr'dun nailed down in just those few sentences!

Re: Conjurers and Illusionists - I think you're absolutely right in both cases.

In my mind, a majority of Kazari smiths tend to be warriors (kh'ur) who have become to old or crippled to fight any longer but maintain their honor by forging/repairing weapons for their clans. They often take on younger apprentices, however, and it's not beyond the realm of possibility that one of those apprentices has a leaning toward conjuration, utilizes it at the forge, etc...

Illusionist makes fantastic sense as lore-keeper and story-teller, too. While Kazari do have a written language, most of their legends, history, and such are based on the "oral tradition" as carrying around stacks of scrolls, etc, just doesn't seem practical. An illusionist would have fantastic success in that role as they could bring additional life to the tales.

Oh!

As to playable races... I am considering running a Capasha based game, at some point. Just need to do a little more fleshing out and such before I'm comfortable with doing so. I'll be sure to reserve a spot for you, Butterfly.

Okay

I got a Ch'dau the Cub scene started and, just as I started to hit a stride, I got a honey-do list handed to me. Soooo... off to take care of whatever the missus says I need to. Back later.
