    Please make backstory for Ice Mage. I did it for Demon Thing in OP and necromancer and Plaquemaster.

    The Mages of ice are interesting at best. These mysterious mages have studied and crafted a form of magic based on ice and the power it lies. They are quite the opposite of pryomancers in almost every regard and have little respect for the flame or fire in general. However that very dislike of fire makes the ice mages hated as well, one of few things they and pyromancers have in common.

    The magic of ice stems from souls magic. How was that even possible is something only the ice mages themselves know as they worked to create it. It can be said to be a new magic but ice magic is a powerful type to wield. The spells themselves can be said to be counters to pyromancy and shares a bit in common with soul magic. How many spells of ice there are is unknown but rumors spread about how the best mages know of the strongest and...coldest spells. One thing is for certain, Ice magic was made for both offensive and defensive use, as well as environmental uses.

    Frozen mages are the best known as they are the most basic users of it, the graduated class of them. The real ice mages are almost unknown and may not even exist. The reason is that the older and more experience ones are like shadows. They prefer secrecy above all and blend in perfectly with the outside world. The frozen mages are known for their cyan shrouds but mostly for their icy aura they have. Common belief is that the higher ones have that aura perfectly concealed and can it use it as an actual attack cold enough to freeze weak beings. All ice mages are known for being everywhere in the world, even where Pryomancers are. Perhaps to study their enemies of the element of ice...

    Compilation of backstory ideas:


    Demonic apostle:

    Will magic. "A unique source of power that lays dormant in all human beings". This powerful inner force can be utilized to channel spells, usually chaotic in it´s nature, but not always so. Will magic was only recently discovered by scholars, but further studying shows that only a few individual can use it.

    Usually having a wicked mind, these "Demonic Apostels" usually associates themselves with demonic being, following an unnamed demon located deep with their temple. Utilizing their will to fulfill their goal, they strive forward, growing stronger as they take damage, making a fight against them feared by all sane creatures.

    There is a downside though, being closely linked with Demonic creatures make their minds and bodies, making them very unstable. As they are hit their bodies degrade, making them more and more feeble until they eventually fall.

    Perhaps their power can grow on par with the gods if they are determined enough?

    Plaquemaster:

    In the deepest parts of the Great Swamp, many kinds of vile arts where born, an example being the infamous "Toxic Cloud", created by a now exiled pyromancer.

    There where a few that followed his teaching, but when their master got exiled they where spread thin, roaming the world in search for a purpose. Their heritage from the Swamp forces many of them to live in poverty, practicing their arts in secret. Because their master where banished, their magic art are slowly dying, with only a few of them practicing it today.

    Most of the remaining practitioner have embraced the filthy art of their former master, now searching to perfect it. Utilizing deadly diseases and plaques, these so called "Plaquemasters" are a feared opponent.

    Necromancer:

    The darksign brands humanity, forcing them to be reborn at the nearest bonfire every time they fall in battle, but not all humans are cursed. This takes away the purpose of life itself. Some individuals want to unlock the secrets behind life, and in turn the darksign itself. These study the art of the dead, Necromancy, and many of them are unstable humans with feeble minds.

    Learning about life has forced them to learn about humanity itself, unlocking the secrets behind sanity and life. Using neither faith nor the soul arts, the necromancers pray to a long forgotten god, using a bastardization of miracles to fulfill their twisted needs.

    Even though necromancers are twisted people, perhaps they might be the ones that unlock the secret to immortality without the darksign, or maybe even the secrets behind the darksign itself.

    Really well done! I liked it.

    Me to, Soris, it´s not that I thought anything bad about it.

    Rather I was preoccupied with thinking about ideas for my Covenant.

    I think an assassin class should be done, being similar to thief but also using smoke bombs and poison.

    Assassin
    Starting Weapons:
    -RH1: Agent's Sword, slightly curved jagged sword. Very fast, inflicts bleed, and has high critical boost.
    -RH2: Wilted Rose, a weapon only capable of critical attacks. Though it barely inflicts damage, a successful critical attack means certain intoxication to the target.
    -LH1: Dueler's Buckler: A small shield with a strange engraving, perhaps of a secret order? Very well with parrying.
    -LH2: Faerie's Bow, a small bow with a very fast draw speed. This strange bow looks like it was made for a child, as such only special arrows can be used with it.
    Starting Gear:
    -Stalker's Cowl, a hood shadowing the wearer's face, but in a world like this, why hide your identity?
    -Shadow Cloak, a cloak that can not be well spotted in dark areas.
    -Black Satin Gloves, elegant gloves that conceal the sense of touch.
    -Assassin's Footpads, stealthy sandals disguising the sound of footsteps, common with thieves and assassins.
    Staring Spells:
    -None
    Starting Miscellaneous:
    -Velvet Ribbon, a thin red strip bound to the wrist, signifying ties to the ancient assassin school. Only the most accomplished are branded with this bracelet.
    Starting Stats:
    -Same/similar to thief.

    -LH2: None.
    Starting Armor:
    -All monk gear. Thin robes with little physical protection.
    Starting Miscellaneous:
    -Pure Heart: Through a life of devotion and purity your soul resists the temptations of dark magic. All dark magics damage is cut by 50%, whether you cast it or another.
    Starting Stats
    -Similar to cleric.

    There are some people on this planet skilled in the arts of unfair combat... and then there is Assassins.

    Usually employed by by royalty and noble folks, the assassins employ deadly poisons and vile tactics to finish of their enemies. Stealthy warriors, the assassin works from within the shadows to strike where the enemy is most vulnerable.

    Most assassins are trained in a loosely connected organisation called "The assassins school". They´re taught to finish of the opponent before they´re even noticed. The school provides the assassins with some basic equipment after finishing their period there. These armaments are strange in their appearance, looking childish and something most adults would never wield.

    A few of these people are only assassins in title, preferring to wander the world, searching for excitement, a purpose or maybe something as simple as a normal life?

    Assassins does not feel like something that is noble.

    I just made a new thread here: http://soulswiki.forumsrpg.com/t22340-compilation-of-backstory-elements#462297

    As a new "Crazy class" idea, sure. But I think it does not fit the assassins idea.

    Instead of "Assassin School", possibly something like Goddess' Hand? It doesn't seem like assassins would go around telling people that they were part of the assassin school. But something like Goddess' Hand would have a similar shock factor and would sound more secretive/elegant.
