Early exploration

Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leόn, governor of Puerto Rico, was the first outsider who is known to have happened onto the peninsula of Florida while searching for an island with rejuvenating waters. Others probably came before him, especially Spanish slavers, but their accounts are not recorded. It is thought that Ponce de Leόn sailed into Florida south of Cape Canaveral near Melbourne Beach around Eastertime in 1513. He named the land La Florida - “the Flowery Land.” The Spanish and French led several more expeditions after this and attempted to settle Florida. In 1565, Spanish Admiral Pedro Menendez de Aviles founded St. Augustine, the first permanent European settlement and oldest city in the continental United States. St. Augustine had a church, seminary, hospital, fish market, and about 120 shops and homes long before the Pilgrims came ashore at Plymouth, Massachusetts. La Florida was much bigger than our state is today and stretched from the Keys north to Newfoundland and west to Texas. St. Augustine was the capital of a major chunk of land that is now the United States. The English grabbed much of the territory over the next 200 years. But other than a period of twenty-one years under British rule, St. Augustine carried the Spanish flag for nearly two and a half centuries.
Many other explorers and expeditions searched Florida for gold and other precious resources. Hernando de Soto sailed into Tampa Bay in 1539 with priests and settlers. They soon found another Spaniard, Juan Ortiz, from an earlier expedition, who had been a captive of the natives for several years. Ortiz served as an interpreter for de Soto as he passed through Florida (including Dade City, Gainesville, Lake City, Tallahassee, and other modern- day towns). De Soto was cruel to the natives and they resisted him with their primitive weapons - bows and arrows, knives, etc. But contagious diseases left behind by de Soto’s march through present-day Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, and Arkansas continued to kill tens of thousands of American natives for years to come.
Florida was a drain on the Spanish treasury and never provided much reward for their efforts like the lands of the Inca and Aztec had. They never found gold, gems, or minerals or anything else of much value in Florida. Florida soil never produced great crops. St. Augustine was of limited value as a fort in protecting the Bahama Channel through which Spain sent its treasure fleets. Ponce de Leόn died at Charlotte Harbor, de Soto died on the banks of the Mississippi, Dominican friar Luis Cancer de Barbastro was slaughtered at Tampa Bay as he held up a crucifix. The only successes in Florida were probably the work of the Franciscan missionaries with the Apalachee Indians around present-day Tallahassee and their cultivation of maize, wheat, beans, pumpkins, tobacco, and cotton. The missions converted many natives to Christianity, but the cruelty of many Europeans often negated the missionaries’ work. A thriving cattle industry developed later around present-day Gainesville. But much of Florida remained a wild domain of buffalo, deer, wild cattle, and ungoverned human runaways - natives, black slaves, Englishmen, and others.

Callout post for OnyxPath theft

Art theft is always a problem.

When popular blogs, and when CORPORATE Blogs like @theonyxpath do it (I can’t tag because they’ve blocked me, it’s also why I can’t reblog) do it about fanart of their own games, it’s just disgusting, insulting and plain unacceptable.

Exibit A


(with a screen, just in case)

There’s not even the name of the artist nor a link to the source. Not even a HINT. Also fucking tag your spoilers!

This is disgusting and this shouldn’t have to happen in the VTM community, nor in the VTMB one. We’re very few and we all know each other by first names.

Onyx Path, you’re insulting us. And it’s not the first time. 

A link and the name of the artist wouldn’t have asked you for more than half a second on google. 

Credit given where credit’s due, Psykerscum made that awesome Tremere-lol, as well as a few others. And here’s the original: http://psykerscum.deviantart.com/art/Neonate-257009547

What is their name? Do they go by the same name they did pre-war?
• Wade Russell, [ “Wade” is: “To Wade in Water; wanderer” ]
• born July 28th, 2045 in Boston Massachusetts [mother Margery Cook; secretary & stepfather James Sanders; former Captain of the US Army
Russ’ never met his biological father

What was their relationship like with their spouse?
Wade met Nora on an exibition in Boston, love at first sight, dating regular, very much in love *g*

What are other people likely to notice about them first?
The scar and the burned skin on the left of his face. And his voice.

Are they introverted or extroverted?
Uhm. Extroverted.

Describe their voice:
He’s no man of many words, but when he opens his mouth his voise is usually low, almost husky. On the other hand his tone can be rough and booming, for example when he’s barking commands at someone or he’s about to start fight. When he’s trying to hide his feelings his voice is often toneless.

Describe their most fond pre-war memory.
The day he met Nora. It was a rainy summer day in Boston. They both were visiting an exibition about something so boring he doesn’t even remember what it was. They ran into each other outside for a cigarette break and shared an umbrella for way more longer than one cigarette takes to be smoked. He was 26 and she was 21. 

Describe their smile.
His what? 

Describe their general appearance, post a screenshot or draw them.

What were their hobbies pre-war?
Sports, basically. Running in the morning was one of his routines pre-war. Baseball was his love, he played it himself and enjoyed watching the game in the Boston stadium. He often helped out fixing cars at the Red Rocket Station with his best friend.

What is their weapon of choice?
A combat rifle or shotgun, and for really close combat he’s carrying a combat knife as well.

Do they get attached to their weapons sentimentally, give them names etc?He’s got a 10mm pistol named “Nora”

What is their sexual orientation?
Straight? …but it’s the wastelands.
Who gives a shit about sexual orientation anyway.

What kind of situations are they likely to avoid?
Everything involving talking to people, especially being nice to so said people.

Do they have any fears or phobias?
Russ’ is usually a pretty tough guy. But he’s issues with claustrophobia. He avoids small spaces as best he can and checks for exits all the time. He was against the idea to live in a vault, but he gave in to please his spouse. Being in a small room and having no escape is itching his nerves. Cause of this fear/phobia are burried in his early childhood when his step father locked him in a closet.

Describe their morality. Is it black & white or are there grey areas?
Russell’s morality became flexible in the Commonwealth. He’s loyal to those he trusts, which are few to be honest. Non the less his all over view of the situation in the wastelands match those of the BOS in many ways. He doesn’t trust Synths because he witnessed various events that proofed him right that they are not to be trusted. Non-Feral-Ghouls he’s not fond of either, but he can accept that they were human once and as long they don’t hurt anyone he’s fine with them.

Which faction/group(s) are they affiliated with, and why?
BOS, because the way he’s seen the Commonwealth so far, he believes that military order is everything that can safe the people. He might change this point of view… 

Which faction/group(s) do they dislike, and why?
He doesn’t understand the Railroad. Because the are rescuing machines???

Did they find romance in the commonwealth? Who are they with?
Friends with benefits. So far he get’s down on Piper…

What do they love the most about their romantic partner(s)?
He’s all physical. He doesn’t want to get emotional connected to someone. So his ‘relationship’ with Piper is more like friends with benefits… He loves how her lips felt around his cock and the noises she made when he came in her mouth. Since that night he has wet dreams and sometimes even daydreams about him fucking her.

Do they suffer from any mental health issues?
Due to his experiences during his military time he suffers from PTSD. His disturbing thoughts, feelings, or dreams related to the events haunt him. This is his main reason for him to avoid larger groups of people such as settlements or bigger cities. What most people confuse for his hot temper is in most cases his self-defence mechanism kicking in.

Do they partake in anything that could be considered escapism?
He runs off to somewhere quiet to get his head straight. The only company he needs during his escapes are his favorite weapons and some booze.

Do they have any (pre-war) memories that make them physically cringe with embarrassment?
He had an on/off relationship with someone while his first years in college. When he felt feelings for this 'someone’ got stronger, he planned a romantic date, which never happened. He ended up crying at the doorstep of that someone because their feelings weren’t mutual. End of the story was that the father of 'someone’ had to chase him home for the whole neighborhood to see.

Describe their butt. You heard me:

You’re welcome…

What are their insecurities?
Talking to people he doesn’t like.
Taking orders from people he thinks aren’t able to lead.

What boosts their confidence?
Headshots and shots at the bar of the Third Rail.

What makes them angry?
People invading his personal space. Sometimes people in general. 
Synths. Mostly the fact that he doesn’t know if it’s a (gen 3) synth or a human he’s talking to.
Preston’s ability to avoid taking the rank of General himself and lead the Minutemen.

Do they cry easily? What’s likely to set off the waterworks?

How do they cheer themselves up, or how would other characters cheer them up?
The lonely nights out in the wilderness do it.
And Piper’s attention when they are alone.

What do they miss the most about pre-war life?
Showers! And diving into open water without being eaten or puke up his guts from radiation sickness.

Who is their bff post-war?
Andrew and Mike – they lived in the same street when they were kids and kept a close friendship until Russ’ was sent to the front line. They shared the same hobbies and interest. Mike was usually his wingman when they went partying. 

Has the post-war commonwealth changed them physically?
He lost weight at first because he didn’t eat enough. He was disgusted by everything. After he finally joined the BOS he put up weight an muscle. He started playing baseball with Danse and random soldiers of the BOS at the airport.

Has the post-war commonwealth changed them mentally?
Yes… The issues he had pre-war are still present and sometimes effect his behavior in a more than bad way.

How do they react to being humiliated, intentionally or otherwise?
“Wait, what?” *sound of cracking knuckles and shoulders*
“Russell! NO!” *companion darting out to hold him back*

Do they/did they dance? Describe their funky moves.
Russell isn’t a dancer. Though he was sweating blood and tears not to step on her feet and the song seemed to be going on forever, the only dance he ever really enjoyed was his wedding dance with Nora. They danced to 'My Girl’ by The Temptations.

How do they feel about ghouls?
Ferals: Kill.
Non-Ferals: OK, but not too close. And if they make the wrong move they catch a bullet.

How do they feel about synths?
“Toast, anyone?” …machines. Creepy as fuck when you can’t tell the difference between them and a human.

They’re in a bar fight. Did they start the fight, are they getting beaten on, or are they trying to break it up?
He probably started it.

What ’S.P.E.C.I.A.L’ stats do they value/embody?
Strength, Endurance, Agility
Fist fighting, barely dying, action boy?

When the going gets tough, your sole survivor….
…is not the one who runs away. He would definitely take a bullet for his companion to protect them. He takes his stand and defeats his opinion. He would never dodge just to please someone.

OK, I wrote this down a month ago… so many things I’ve written down here changed. Mostly because of the RP between @the-general-shadow-rose and my OC @russell-2045 … but yeah, that was Russell. :D
