@Vytanni_Throttlenight @Xonos_Darkgrate1 - Hello, Vytanni aka Skyhawk. Thanks for offering your thoughts. Always welcomed!! So, let me try my best to chime in. I'm sure, this being a Christian based forum, we're aware (or should be) that blood is not only a main Christian theme throughout our bible, (skip past the Precious Moments cute fluffy angel children to our actual bible, lol) In fact "without the shedding of blood, there is no remission (of sins)" (Heb. 9:22) It's of course most likely known that a major overall, extensive, exuberant topic is why blood is the only reason we have atonement for our sins. On that note, blood should not even be an issue unless used in overage or showing gore, or horror, or pointless focus, etc. (think um, Freddie Kruger, Friday 13th yada yada)
Anyhoo, that being said, I've noticed that the topic of blood being barely discussed at all seems to be an issue (As a minister myself, I could jaw on for hours about the blood of the Lamb, the blood of the sacrifice, Abel's blood crying out, etc. you get the point hehe) but - I won't! LOL. Instead, I am more than happy to aqueous to remove whatever those references because they seem to be issues - and to avoid that being pulled into some type of focal point. After all, these incredible role plays should be a great, exciting fun and intense opportunity for everywhere to participate and let their creative juices flow, (and we certainly do that! Woot!) and I certainly don't want a mere mention of dried blood from an intense battle to be some type of focal point. If that's the case, then the story becomes moot, and loses it's flavor, power and point altogether.
So I am asking @Hanna_Brassheart to kindly modify those few references of blood. Here is the replacement text "looked like dirt and sweat" - " - "and what looked like shards of some type of weapon" The rock, the dirt, the loss, the overwhelming feelings of struggle."
