I was under the impression she usually took on a humanoid form, though it's obvious she isn't human (the claws are a dead giveaway...) I wouldn't put an artificial cap on her altitude based on level; rounds are kind of loosely-defined, timewise. I would be willing to say that for travel, outside of combat, that she can fly for a minute for 1 TP (this is still not very efficient). In combat, the stress on her body is greater because of the rigors of fighting, and as such, it is difficult to fly in a controlled manner. Take out the altitude limitation; she can fly for 3 TP per round. The altitude issue is still meaningful because if she flies up too high and runs out of TP she's going to drop like a rock and end up dead.

Archmage wrote:If you want to work out some kind of level progression for Miang's innate talents (which is the fairest way to balance them) I think we should tie it to a skill of some sort, perhaps "Longese Dragon Abilities" or whatever. It'd be a standard skill, base stats <Cou> sounds good to me, and as she advanced in the skill she could unlock more of her potential as a powerful dragon. I'm not sure how old/experienced she is intended to be, but she seems a bit much for level 1 if only because of the number of innate abilities with no serious drawbacks.

Haak Ling basically turns Miang into a spellcaster. She has minimal magic to begin with, so this is not of great benefit to her, but the spells specific to Haak Ling can make all the difference. If you're looking for a dmage on Blood Reunion, I need to have some base ranks available. Does Haak Ling use Miang's shadow magic rank, or does he have his own? I don't think that Miang should be able to spend 12 TP to become a character who is too much better at magic than she is normally, but I think we can work something out.
Archmage wrote:Miang, it would seem, is a very complicated character. This is totally fine, it just means it's going to take some careful thought to put her in Philsys in a way that accomodates her. I'd love to chat with you about it via AIM; please feel free to IM me at any time.
