Oof, what a ride. I didn't have a lot of plans in mind when I made Adelaide, I just wanted to play with the new magic missile colors so I made an eccentric color mage. And boy did the world rock her around.

A little tease to start... Her self-buffed only HP.

The question that probably most people have... was she crazy? Well the answer is complicated. She was very eccentric, but she wasn't really -crazy- when I made her. Her speaking in colors was inspired by the real-life phenomenon of synesthesia, where people will hear colors. But instead of sounds, her mind translated certain abstract concepts to colors. Some people did a pretty good job finding out what those associations where, but for the rest (or to confirm your suspicions)

Yellow - Luck, Wealth, Greed

Orange - Misfortune, Rot, Ill-will (not violent)

Red - Anger, Violence, Battle

Green - Honor, Courage, Growth, Constructive

Pink - Love (All kinds), Good Will

Blue - Calm, Study, Academics, Learning

Purple - Mystery, Curiosity, Unknown


However, she was an Unpredictable, so soon the innocent, eccentric idealist Ticker Refugee was confronted with the powers of the planes running through her... and it broke her mind even while it strengthened her body and her powers. She became not just crazy, but impossibly naive, believing anything that was told to her and doing anything asked of her, seeing even the worst monsters as her friends. She was cared for by the Glitt PCs at the time, her friends who took her in, and eventually they went on Zelia N'dare's epic planar quest to find miraculous waters that could restore her. A lot of them died for it... and then when Zelia delivered her the goods, she instead gave her a potion of raw Planestuff that fucked her up even more, altering her body and mind even further. The results....

Do you even min-max bro?

Luckily, shortly after she came into possession of a chromamantic artifact that could keep the madness at bay, and she embarked on a quest to master each Color of magic so that she would never be at the plane's mercy again. Thus started a long (and very fun) conflict with the druids as she hounded them and hunted them to try and force them to give her their Green magic.

While I had a ton of fun on her (Special thanks to Ironside who really supported me on this PC), all good things must come to an end, and with the failed attempt at pivoting to a leader of magical characters and things slowed down a lot for me, I decided it was time for her to retire and find her last colors somewhere in the planes beyond. Or probably going mad again trying. We'll never know.

Definitely the most kitted out and powerful PC that I've played on EFU so far, pretty ironic considering I didn't plan out her build at all and mostly just picked spells based on which color they where. Also my first level 10 PC. Wooo. Good times.

Slapped with almost every color of the rainbow and still looked fly as hell.

Adelaide was a real one. Good hustle, bud.

Oh we will know, oh the annals will know for all time what became of 'Maddie Addie the Rainbow Bridge', muahahahaha!

With that mandatory self-inflated maniacal reaction out of the way, you are certainly due congratulations! You've created and defined a specialisation in magic: chromamancy and that's quite the achievement. Just look at that loot, dedicated to chromamancy! I hope to see it continue to filter through to those who might pursue the same focus one day--should such a thing occur. You know, it would be something in the vein of how loot descriptions reference some forgotten name or history, it could instead be a homage to Adelaide Einhardt the Chromamancer.

Well done, well done. So sad and too bad about failing to rise to a leadership position amongst the Initiated, but leadership's not something just anyone is cut out for (I should stop now and save this stuff for an IC publication XD). All things said, the character looks like she had quite the journey and I think your decision to retire her is a fair one - especially with how it makes sense for Addie, going out to find the rest of her colours out in the Planes and whatnot after failing to find what she sought in the City of Rings. Retirement in style.

Getting to confirm what "pink" was, I see how my PC was the Pinkest now  ;D

Adelaide was such a fun PC to either be beside or just to hear about her zany antics, she was so great!

I loved the character, and thought it was brilliant how you portrayed her. Well done!

Amazing. Sad to see her go while I'm sidelined.
