Hey Capt'n Knox- had the pleasure of meeting you the other day in the forums- t'was a pleasure. My RL name is Landon and I'm a ravenous RPG/MMO/Medieval nut. Always play a spellcaster main with the same character name. If anyone has seen "Bermuda" in any past MMO, it was likely me.
1. Talk about yourself as a gamer, what games you played, what experience you have with PvP, PvE, and RP.
If I were to list every game I've played or been a part of over the past 25 years this would be a bloody long post. If the game is any of these, odds are I've played it: 1) Medieval/High Fantasy in nature, i.e. swords, shields, armor, spells. 2) Any form of magic is involved. 3) MMO in general. 4) on PC.
To rattle off a few MMO's off the top of my head: Lineage, Lineage 2, ArcheAge, Elderscrolls Online, Guild Wars, Guild Wars 2, World of Warcraft, Star Wars Galaxies, TERA, Skyforge, Warhammer Online, Wildstar, EVE, Everquest, Runescape, Age of Conan, Anarchy Online, Rift, Everquest 2, Neverwinter, Drakensang Online, Final Fantasy XIV, Ultima Online, Asheron's Call 2, Asheron's Call, the list goes on and on.
My single player RPG list is extremely long as well, if it's included in the 4 above criteria, I've probably played it.
Generally I'm a heavy RP player in a PVP setting. I love PVE/raids/world bosses as well, but there's something special about snuffing out another real player- never gets old. I generally play the role of a guard/advisor to someone important (guild leader if in a guild, etc) or bounty hunter for whoever pays the most, if not guilded.
2. Give an overview of a medieval character you want to play in Black Desert Online.
My character name is Bermuda Spellbreak, a Wizard that has had his soul eternally bound to his body during the course of a rather violent fight with the demon Abezethibou. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abezethibou). Wizard fits my personality well- always on a quest for knowledge and using that knowledge to have an edge over your fellow peers.
3. A short paragraph describing your character story.
Bermuda is a time traveler of unknown origins, thought to be a pupil of the great wizard of legend Merlin. Legend has it that Bermuda is a being of immeasurable knowledge from his countless ages of walking various worlds, thought to have found a way to defeat death itself. The story goes that Bermuda's soul is incapable of leaving his physical body as a result of of a 2,000 year battle with the demon Abezethibou. Abezethibou thought that this would be the ultimate punishment for Bermuda- as Bermuda's body decayed, the soul would forever be bound to it's physical remains; however, Bermuda found a way to preserve his body, not aging a day beyond it's state when the preservation was started. Despite being critically wounded in the battle with Abezethibou and being forced to flee, Bermuda knew his target's name and all he had was time.
Abezethibou is a demon and fallen angel described in the pseudepigraph Testament of Solomon. He followed Beelzebub upon his fall from heaven, and became an important demon in hell. However, after his treason, he is left with one red wing. He later traveled to Egypt where he hardened the heart of pharaoh and his advisers, and convinced them to pursue the fleeing Israelite slaves. In doing so, he drowns along with the army in the Red Sea, and becomes trapped in a pillar of water. Abezethibou found a way to escape his confinement in the Red Sea; however, he was still trapped to the realm of water, unable to leave it's expansive prison.
After 4,000 years of learning, wandering, training, Bermuda found Abezethibou's whereabouts and set off to slay his eternal foe- thus defeating the curse that held his soul to his body. The legend goes that Bermuda had a boat built, using technology from an unknown era, and trained a captain to sail the great vessel. Bermuda and the captain set sail to engage Abezethibou in the very prison that contained him- the ocean. After thousands of miles at sea, Bermuda and the Captain found their target and all we have left of the battle is a short excerpt from a terrified Captain's journal that washed up on a beach that is known as "East Florida" in the year 2016:
Page 1: "We have been sailing for days. Bermuda has not moved from his spot at the front of the ship, in a constant state of meditation- speaking in a language that I do not understand. Occasionally lightning strikes the boat and the water around him but yet he goes on undisturbed. I hope this journey is not the end of us."
Page 2: "By the Gods I've seen Abezethibou! Bermuda's chanting has been to draw the great demon to our location! Bermuda began crackling with energy and dove into the sea, his staff at hand, disabling the boat in the process! I fear I may not be able to make it back to shore, as the waves at sea depict the violent battle below. I don't know what I....." the page trails off with red stains at the bottom.
Modern-day theorists that are familiar with the story of Bermuda believe that the blood on the journal is not that of the captain, but of the demon himself, and that the captain was safely thrown through a timeshift portal summoned by Bermuda, thus explaining how the page excerpt hasn't yet had time to decay. The theorists go on to say that Bermuda and the demon continue to wage war to this day, perhaps in a dimension beyond ours, thus the unexplained occurrences in what became known as the Bermuda Triangle.
