This is actually a prime candidate for the Flesh It Out forum...

So we have an actual ocean composed of water, and then a second, thicker ocean, called atmosphere, because it is composed of what we usually percieve as gases. Their thicknesses should differ a lot, so they simply don't mix.

(But this looks like a mere scientifical distinction, there likely are many layers in-between.)

Is there any "real" atmosphere above it all? Probably it is only a thin layer of hydrogen, helium and other light gases, not very suited to life as we know it.


How about life?

- the planet's body itself, also not suited to life as we know it (bacterial life possible though).
- the "atmosphere", the thick ocean with oxygen. Plants live here mostly, but other life forms can be imagined. Only slow movement is possible however. The area may be shielded from dangerous radiation thanks to the sea above it; but much of the usable light is also lost.
- the ocean, the top layer shields the radiation, it may contain life similar to the marine life of Earth. However, the light comes from above, and oxygen from below. Thus the animals would sink upwards for food (where the sea-grasses grow), and stay mostly down to breathe.
- the thin pitiful thing resembling an atmosphere, noted before.

The plants on the surface would be gigantic trees, possibly ranging up to the very surface of the second ocean. Mighty plants indeed!

This whole strange setup might be caused by Life itself, by the way. Go to Comment

Scientifically impossible, but I can deal with that.

What do you mean by:
"Due to the high potency of the intermittant atmospheres and the raw energy of the young planet, any thoughts by intelligent beings on this planet would result in reflections through environmental changes."
Are you saying that intelligent beings could think something into being on this planet, or change the terrain with their thoughts? Explanation please.

Also, clarify this:
"he plants growing on the surface of the planet must pull water to themselves through long roots, which extend upwards, and somehow mysteriously draw the water of the atmosphere to them."
By "surface", do you mean the inner "roof" of the air shell below the water, or what?

You're saying that the atmosphere is water and below it is air? What? Explanations?

So...
What is there to this character?
No real backstory to speak of, except for a very vague one that I'm not sure I quite understood...

Well I'm sorry, but your explanation of the backstory is almost as nonsensical as the actual story itself. Go to Comment

This is the poster child for "We don't care what the character knows, tell us what is going on." The character has no purpose or reason to exist, it has no reason to be included in a game. It is not even good "color" material. This post remains as a warning to all those who would do the same.

Oh admins and mods, if you find similar bad things, make sure to edit their free-text to " Bad Example " Go to Comment

Hm, 3 hits and a 5 vote...

An interesting character, though I don't think its worth a five.

Is there any reason that he was skipped to another planet? Perhaps an enemy wanted him banished? I think this character needs a bit more depth

Exactly. His past he doesn't remember because he died when he was transported to the new planet. Eventually, he gets bored with death, and comes up with, with his imagination, a way to get back to Earth: the machine. Go to Comment

Lancid is. Lancid does. Lancid cares not. Lancid is boring.

This almost feels like some sort of art piece. He could become something, but right now I get a very vague idea of him. Though I know more about his shaving practices then most NPCs I know of.

And I'm very ambivalent on the whole Bad Example freetext. It feels like the equivalent to a dunce-cap to me.
