    A short tutorial on how to make simple HTML tables in the Valucre editor. I came from an html-enabled jcink forum before I came to val and I am here to spread a tiny bit of coding knowledge. Disclaimer: Am not professional coder. In any way. Note: I normally use Chrome for this, but I believe this also works in Firefox 1. Start a new post/thread OR edit an existing post. Leave one line of text in the editor. 2. Right click, then click "Inspect" OR hit Ctrl+shift+I 3. This window will pop up on the right side of the screen. Click the icon that looks like a box with a cursor on it (highlighted) 4. Click the line of text in the Valucre editor. You'll see the devtools jump to the <p>text</p> element. 5. Right-click the <p>text</p> element and click "Edit as HTML" 6. Edit the HTML. Or, paste one of the simple premade codes I've posted below! After you're done, press Ctrl+Enter and the Val editor will display the code you've inputted! After this simply click Save or Post and the post will retain the formatting you've given it via devtools. Yay! I'll add more tables later but here are a few super-simple ones. <div style="width:75%; margin:auto; border-top: 1px solid; border-bottom:1px solid;"> <p>This is a table with 75% width for skinny posts. It also has borders at the top and bottom.</p> </div> <div style="letter-spacing:2px; font-family:Georgia;"> <p>This table has a e s t h e t i c letter spacing</p> </div> <div style="background: pink; color:white; margin:auto; width:75%;"> <p>This table has a pink background and white text because reasons, I guess.</p> </div> Feel free to ask questions below and/or test tables!

    Necessity and a healthy dose of ambition are driving Akako, the current Regent of Port Caelum, to expand her territory. With the immediate threat that the Datsuzoku Empire presents, Akako is amassing power and allies to take down the potential threat. Beyond that, she seeks to spread her influence far beyond the Port City she currently governs. Since arriving in Valucre, the daiyokai had been satisfied to take a supporting role; however, everything has changed with long-standing allies failing her by either neglecting their duties to lead appropriately or by betraying her trust on a more personal level. It is finally time for the rumored Yokai Queen to solidify her status and rise to power befitting someone of her station. Upon joining Akako’s ranks, you will be exposed to a roleplay experience that is unlike any other offered in Valucre. What we offer is a unique prestige rank and influence tier system that will reflect upon in-character accomplishments, which will allow you to earn character and player privileges respectively. I am currently looking for a group of dedicated long-term players that are ready and eager to be involved in both PVP and PVE conflicts in the forms of espionage, diplomacy, war, and much more. Q&A Section: 1. What do you mean be "earn character and player privileges?" There are roles that I have already set, however, they are NPCs which can be controlled by people within the organization depending on what influential tier and prestige ranking you've acquired. Basically, it isn't the position that is of interest to you or any other RPer, but the authority to use a certain level of power within the empire as it expands. For instance, say a higher ranked RPer was writing with a lower ranked RPer, the higher ranked RPer would be able to exercise the most influence over the NPC's regardless of who owns the thread. So, when you first start you would be tier 0, so you have no control over any of the NPC's, but as you rise in ranks you basically have access to more. That being said, there is a cap on how many "cooks" there will be in the kitchen. And to get to the highest tier, there needs to be a substantial amount of work put in.The reason for that is the influence tier system is basically a symbol of trust in you (or another player). Basically, if I am going to let you drive my car, I need to trust that you're dedicated to my cause. 2. Can you explain a little more about the influential tier, and prestige ranking? Like how do you earn them, which one does what, and what exactly I would need to do to increase either? The influential tiers are the overall control you will have in a setting over NPC's, so this is for the player. The prestige ranking basically is how much sway you will have with Akako ICly with your OC. An OC with higher prestige will have an easier time asking her for something or making suggestions than someone that doesn't have that prestige. Prestige rankings can pretty much give an OC minor celebrity status which can be used in other ways aside from how they interact with Akako. So, someone with a high enough prestige ranking could theoretically get a guard to overlook them committing a minor crime or they might be able to eat at places for free. I know a lot of tabletop games and even video games include a Charisma stat. I would think of prestige as something akin to that. So influence tiers are for the player, while each OC has its own prestige rank. (Ex. A tier 5 player may have one OC with 30 prestige points and another OC with only 10.) So here is how the Tier system looks and the requirements per tier. Influential Tiers: Tier 0 - No special privileges Requirement: N/A Tier 1 - Minor control over basic NPCs and some guards. (Ex. If you're following Hanami, I am doing just that when we see some of those staffed by Akako coming and going from the estate and when they watch the interaction between Koji and Akako. You will notice that they do not directly interact with anyone at this point.) Requirement: 350 points, 10 prestige points Tier 2 - Control over basic NPCs and some guards. At this point, you can control them to interact with others aside from your character. That means, you can have them interact with other OC's at this point. Requirement: 700 points, 15 prestige points Tier 3 - Can control mid-level diplomats. Requirement: 1050 points, 30 prestige points Tier 4 - Basically control anyone within the town/city that is under Akako's influence. Requirement: 1400 points, 50 prestige points Tier 5 - Able to declare war and broker peace treaties. Requirement: 1750 points, 100 prestige points The point system comes in two parts, points earned by completing quests and earning “extra credit based on the amount of work and thought put into the quest. The second part is prestige points awarded by the class of quests completed. Obviously, the harder the quest, the more prestige points you can earn. Again, the point requirement to move up in tier includes the prestige points earned. (ex. 345 accumulated quest completion points + 15 prestige points = 360 points)

    God Slayers [OOC]

    "I will show you how the mighty fall." ☾ The Grand Kommadant of Nehalen has begun the process of removing the mighty Gods of her land. The balance between these Gods of the people of Nehalen is being disrupted by the Kommadant's blasphemous actions. By erecting a nullifier in the form of an invisible veil, Primera begins the process of pushing these powerful beings back into their own world, sundering them from the land they have called home for eons. This has sent the Gods into a frenzy, their powers are being siphoned from them the more they fight against the push, weakening them immensely, and their minds have begun to dwindle into psychosis. Once revered and fondly feared, the Gods are now looked upon as a disease in the eyes of the Grand Kommadant's followers who believe the time of Man has finally come. ☽ Welcome! I'm glad you all could drop on by to my little event I've got here. Things are pretty straight forward around these parts: Nehalen (formerly Renovatio) is going through some changes and this event will be the spark to said changes. I'm asking you all to affect my lore by joining the threads offered to kill a God and properly canonize them. The Gods are scattered across Nehalen and I will provide you those locations. Kill a God, become a hero (or villian)! Q&A: How many pages do the threads need to be? I am looking for at least two pages. Can always be more but can't be less! How many Gods can I kill? As many as you want but you can only go after one at a time. Can I do this alone? Absolutely! If you want to solo kill a God, I see no issue with that. Do I need to use a specific character? No. You can use whatever character you want but I do expect some sort of fairness from you all. Please keep to mild powers associated with the forum. Do I need to use a specific combat system? No. I am allowing everyone to go kill crazy with this but, again, I do expect some sort of fairness from you all. Please realize this isn't supposed to be easy; I expect damage not only to the area(s) you are fighting the Gods in but also damage to your character. Can I contain a God? Go right ahead! Contain it however you want, doing whatever you want, just keep in mind that it is a lesser, weaker version and it will be that way forever due to my character cutting said God's will off. Can I absorb the spirit/essence of the God? Of course! Do I need to use a storyteller? If you feel it is necessary, go right ahead! I don't know how to start? No worries! I will be creating prompts for all the Gods that need to be killed and you can follow that prompt however you wish. Just post in the thread and have fun. How long do I have once I start? I would appreciate 1 post per 3 days. This will keep the thread going with hopes it'll be finished at an appropriate time. If I see a thread has stalled for more than two weeks, I will assume that God is up for grabs again. If you need more time, reach out to me! I understand how life can be a bit hectic. I'm done, now what? Tag me in your summary for the thread with opportunities (example: killed the God, ended up destroying a city/village/town, how will this affect the area? Was something unleashed during this? etc.) for future role-players. I need some extra help! Never hesitate to reach out to me. I am constantly available on Discord, making it the quickest way to get answers. No Discord? That's okay, just send me a pm or tag me in the OOC for this event. How long is this event? Until all the Gods are killed off or just enough of them are killed.

    Vanora Rising

    Art by Joon Ahn A new world rises on the shores of Thraece. . . Hello everyone, it’s ya girl Vielle here ❤️ A new city rises, brimming with promise: a coastal paradise on the shores of Thraece, one of the three islands that make up Ursa Madeum. With the arrival of House Hildebrand, the once-sleepy fishing village has turned into a bustling hub of commerce and potential, ripe for new stories and adventures to take root in. Shape this city, or let it shape you—either way, Vanora is open for business! A foreword of sorts: So what does Vanora have to offer? ► Business Opportunities! — Wanna get rich? (Spoiler: of course you do; don’t fight it 👀 ) Take up the helm of preexisting businesses in Vanora or make your own, and watch that sweet savory pile of gold flow through your bathroom pipes and into your shiny tub. What’s money for if not to swim in? ► Notable People (that could be you!) — Become the stuff legends are made of: take up a preexisting NPC or work your way up to fame (or infamacy) as your own character! Either way, they’ll be writing tales about you for centuries to come. ► Exotic Adventuring Locales! — Exploration is the name of the game here; there is so much to discover not only within the borders of Vanora, but outwards to the sprawling wildlands and turbulent waters beyond. You never know what you’ll find hiding around the next corner! Just be sure to take a map: we won’t be responsible for any gruesome unfortunate incidents that may occur lest you get lost. Don’t say we didn’t warn you 😂 ► Quests Ahoy! — Urban navigating? Treasure hunting? Seashell collecting? Giant crab wrangling? Deep sea diving? Religious scheming? Seaweed socializing? Vanora has got tons of adventures coming up soon, with many quests building on prior IC events! Make your own quests (if applicable) or pursue any listed on the Vanora Quest List. @Wade and I are brainstorming up a multi-chapter quest line coming out very soon that would hopefully whet some appetites looking for some good ‘ol dungeon delving amongst other things 👀 ► Loremaking! — Wanna make something new you haven’t currently seen around that could fit right into Vanora, like wondrous flora or fauna the world has yet to see, or strange locations to tempt bumbling adventurers to explore? All ideas are welcome here; we need only discuss it and/or check it for approval, and then it’s off and canon to the city lore! ► Persistent Plotlines! — When I say persistent, I mean long-term, inter-connected, and consistent plotlines that can ultimately shape the face of the city, the region, and even the very oceans of UM. We’ve got heavy storm clouds of ideas rumbling in the horizon we hope to bring about, and hopefully you all will love them as much as we do ❤️ Last, but most certainly not least: ► Coconut People! — Sentient tribal coconuts, guys, come on! 'nuff said, says Moana. If you find yourself looking for a new sandbox to play in (with some waves thrown in for good measure), don’t hesitate to stop by and look around: maybe you’ll find something you like 😉 Let me know if you’re up for some coastal livin’ and beach lovin’ here or in a PM! ❤️

    Maps of Ursa Madeum. My Adobe Illustrator skill remains pretty low so this was made in Photoshop. Took me a ridiculously long time figuring out the scale and matching it to the Terran map. Overall am satisfied with it :D Considerable improvement/art style shift from my first ever map two years ago, Taen:

    Expeditions sponsored by the Illyrian government Backstory: With Illyria’s horrific introduction into Valucre, it has taken some time for the nation to adjust to its new environment and its presence as a sister island to Orisia. There is much they do not know about what makes Valucre…Valucre or the many wonders/horrors that inhabit this world. This absence of knowledge is something Illyrians cannot stomach so at the behest of their king, several members of the Scientific Division will be initiating expeditions to collect data on a variety of places/things throughout Valucre. OK big deal, where do I come in? This is a recruitment post for either a character you can conjure to be a part of the Illyrian Scientific Division or any of your personal characters to embark on a quest (see below). I am looking for some members willing to play an Illyrian scientist and take ownership of completing a quest in the name of their king/nation or for some adventurous characters to join others on completing a quest to help Illyria gather its bearings within Valucre. Should you decide to create a character to be a part of Illyria, then just post a character sheet here or feel free to PM me to discuss character creation. I have only provided a general sense of how Illyrians are in the lore posting solely because I want others to build off of that and make their character their own. I love collaboration so don’t hesitate to message me with ideas for anything. All other characters are welcome to join as well. Just let me know which one you wish to use. I need more details! I have combed through some quests that I would like to complete for my own purposes. The quests I wish to tackle are the following: 1. The Sinking Island Rises Again – Within the Ild Pass that lies between what is now Illyria and Orisia, a massive beast rumored to have created the Orisian Isles has been detected once again by Illyrian sonar devices. The rumors of a bed of viable vegetation along its back as well as a mysterious artifact embedded within its tough skin has warranted an investigation by the Scientific Division who is calling on experienced seafarers to go on an expedition to retrieve specimens and possibly the artifact. The creature only surfaces for an hour or two at a time for air according to historical records so time is of the essence. 2. Learn the Ulway – Both the Illyrian Magical Division and the Scientific Division are interested in collecting samples from Amalia (specifically the Yellow Calquartz trees) and perhaps establishing some sort of trade relationship with the Ulway. They are contracting diplomatic personnel and prospectors to join them in this endeavor. (tagging @amenities for visibility) Summary for those who skimmed through the above: 1. I am looking for people who want to create an lllyrian character and join me for one of the quests above. 2. I am also looking for anyone else who wants to have their character join up on one of the two quests above Possible Participants: @Sanonymous - VCF Minions? @Anon - Abe @Thotification - Linda Linda (Explorer Extraordinaire) @ticklefarte - creating an Illyrian (Possible Scientific Division member) @HollowCipher - Dan @Rabbit - Asura

    Tookie's Tantalizing Tales

    Now you see, Tookie was a masterful storyteller. His one and only book, Tantalizing Tales, has stayed atop the bestseller charts eons before they existed. It tells tales of a world horrible and beautiful, it fables the monsters that have come and gone and will come again in due time. The future and the past of the world has already been inscribed into its pages. But unfortunately, it seems the world has forgotten of it’s essence, at the word of 80 year old bearded virgins. Though if one wishes to drink of Tookie’s wisdom, It is never too far. It sits on the shelf of any child worth their salt, clad not in leather but in magic in awe. So are you ready to discover the wonderful world of Valucre through new eyes? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) -x- I want to create an official in-world book full of fairy tales. We can do this through an assortment of roleplays throughout all of Valucre (mostly in the past). We can experiment with timelines, races, settings etc (eg: Create a floating town 500 years in the past inhibited by walking tomatoes) We can add to the lore or build and strengthen existing lore. We can create fabled characters in Valucre canon! (WOOOAH! Have you heard about the treasures of Dudely the dudewrecker?!) Any genre goes. We can have lots of fun. Once we’re done with each thread, we will water it down and glorify it’s events and turn it into a nice little fairytale or a really dark one! Who knows? And though I can’t promise if I have the time I will do some cool graphics for it. This is an all out experimental endeavour, I want to break the conventional rp structure and see what else can we do. All ideas, questions and criticisms are welcome! I’d like to start off the first tale with 3-4 other people. Anyone interested in helping with the overall project is also welcome and should DM me. *Name of the book is subject to change. Let's go! :D

    Time will tell

    He had his opinions about Hildebrand's decision. It would mean that they would become outsiders, in a sense, and whoever followed would now be beneath the rule of that House: their laws, their order, and their decisions. Whatever assistance the House may need will now come at a price. Those choosing to stay beneath the decided government have the responsibility to work around this pebble. Whatever reason behind the decision, malicious or not, the Hildebrand House has now caused more issues than what is necessary. Considering how the whole meeting has gone, Milorian really can't be all that surprised. Thankfully, it is not a failing House. He believes they will flourish enough and probably go about their way, before quietly slipping the knife between the new ruler's ribs. The elf won't make them out to be enemies just yet, but they have now earned a cautious title. Scheming is the flavor of the day when it comes to such grand decisions being made concerning change. Comfortable with marking the Hildebrand House a possible threat, Milorian returned to the rest of the conversation. And then the words were taken away from him when the suggestion of King was planted with his name. He understands the implications of this title, especially the lack of power it came with underneath the new proposed government. Though it isn't power, he finds himself yearning or needing, it is an opportunity and with opportunity comes wondrous benefits. Right now he is being handed a broken system where it was a struggle to get any of them to agree on much, and a few have already shown they can't "play" nice. This disfigured farce of a rule will surely be his undoing. Above him, he heard Primera smother a laugh; he wonders if it's at him or the situation. "My brother Austere Mythal will take his place a Lord of our House." King? Well, he has been called worse by better people. "If there are no objections, I am happy to take the seat as King."

    Valucre and Discord - feedback

    I'm far from active on this site anymore but I wanted to chime in both from Valucre experience and experience on a separate roleplay site that did have an active DIscord channel. Like with anything, there are pros and cons either way. I don't think a Discord channel is necessary or vital to a roleplay site. If we single out Valucre, which we are, consider how much effort has paid off without a Discord channel. People still communicate; they have OOC threads, WC threads, PMs, a means to contact each other through Discord and elsewhere without an official Discord channel. I've been in both worlds and in my experience there's not a whole lot of gain or a whole lot of loss with a Discord channel. What a Discord channel does for a roleplay site is offer every single member (who has applied for it, and that is key, because not everyone will) uniform and immediate communication with each other. Good and bad, they can share ideas and discuss events but also lose time by doing nothing but talking nonsense lol. Even that isn't inherently bad, it builds familiarity, but balance is indeed what I'm driving at. The site I went to was barely active in its OOC sections as a result of the Discord channel and, I don't know, it always affected me and I wondered how it would affect newcomers who came to the site for the site but saw minimal use of its OOC sections. Granted, we're primarily on a roleplay site to roleplay, so IC, but OOC is no less vital. It's a given. So, just my cents on the matter, whatever they're worth. I offer my input from someone who has been on Valucre for some time, a roleplay site without an official Discord channel, and someone who has been on another roleplay site with a Discord channel. I like more than one roleplay site, nothing wrong with that, but ultimately this matter really does boil down to pros and cons, and what is most feasible for the site runners.

    Time will tell [UM noble house meeting]

    So, to recap: GOVERNMENT Noble Houses each select a representative for a council. The council votes on national issues. A monarch is elected by the nobility to be the chairman of the council, mediate disputes, break ties in terms of gridlock, act as figurehead of government and spokespersn for times of crisis. The chosen monarch voted is Milorian Mythal. Dali, Karradeen, Kholin, and Uldwar can either select a council representative, which we can do OOC, or we can assume the reps are the current noble house heads. if there are other changes (removing houses from council standing, adding houses to rep to the council, etc.) they can happen in the future. For now, this meeting just aims to set the foundations for the govt moving forward. OATHSWORN Rozharon will propose the following IC Oathblade wielders must keep their identities public. If an Oathblade is owned by someone under a noble house, thr blade can be said as belonging to that noble house, and not specify it's owner's identity. This is to keep each wielder accountable to whatever they do with their blades. Oathsworn are obligated to defend against threats to the *people* of Ursa Madeum as a whole, as much as it's in their capacity to do so. Oathblades will not be allowed to be used against other houses or to further political agendas. They also cannot be used for crime, evil, all that. This won't be proposed by Roz in the meeting, but she'll be telling Crowley later to act as an IC banhammer and take back the blades if their wielders abuse their power. Lenore will likely help him. Essentially what he did with Sunscar and Marrow during Misral on Fire. Of course, breaking the above rules for agreed-upon plots doesn't mean instantly getting them yoinked by Crowley/Wade. Things like Crowley failing to defeat the rule violator, the violator escaping, etc., can be arranged. Collaboration is supreme, just run things through Wade when it comes down to it. NON-UM LAND EXPANSION There are a *lot* of things to consider when making a system for land expansion in this new political context. By outside entity, this is non-UMain political entity: Hildebrand, Senaria, Port Moon, etc. I don't think things have to be too complicated since collaboration is supreme. Existing outside entities keep the land they already have. Senaria and Port Moon, since the land they're on is considered UMain land, will pay taxes to UMain or a similar arrangement. since Hildebrand is a separate govt, it doesn't pay taxes to UMain Non-UMain land expansion still follows the page to square mile ratio of regular land expansion threads. The IC process will differ on a case by case basis. There are too many scenarios to make a system for that covers all of them and I'd rather just talk it out OOC > agree on an IC outline and specific requirements > do the thread IC We use the aforementioned requirement list as a loose guideline for IC requirements for non-UMain land expansion (involving a UMain rep in the thread, whether an NPC or PC, for at least one post) Is that all good? EDIT: Now for specific things I need OOC input/confirmation on Have the council reps automatically be the house heads, or be different people selected by the house heads? If its the latter, we can do it OOC and say the selection happened after the thread IC. @Tyler and @Aleksei and @Infernal, if he wants, are up next with their IC votes for monarch. Supposedly after that Roz proposes the Oathsworn rules. Since the monarch is essentially decided, we could skip that part and end the thread with Roz proposing the oathsworn rules and leaving the council to discuss the rest of the issues. The remaining 4 nobility present (feat Senaria) can timeskip to after a discussion on the issues above (maybe including senaria and port moon), and post their exit posts. If you'd like to stretch the thread after Roz exits that'd be okay, but I believe the important issues OOC and IC have been decided on.

    Who would have thought that the very first person I would meet from this little role playing world of ours would be Dana? Definitely not me. I still cringe when I think about how many years I wasted shutting this wonderful person out of my life, and for what? I am still not even sure. We use to live very close to each other and I could have so used a friend like her. But it's silly to think about that now. I am just happy and giddy that I was able to help her celebrate her birthday. And I can't adequately express how much fun it was to sit there giggling about role play while we drank sangria and ate sliders, nachos, and octopus. @Narcissa

    Akako Akari

    Town Hall Meeting | Port Caelum

    How many had Akako saved over her lifetime? It was something Jun often wondered. It seemed like mere months ago when Akako took her in after the murder of her parents, but it had been a few years at this point. More recently, the daiyokai had saved a new face amongst those loyal to the Yokai Queen. Rin was her name, and she was quiet and unassuming, at least from what Jun had observed. "Rin?" Jun inquired as she approached, careful not to startle her. The avian yokai came to stand beside Rin as she too observed where Akako stood and the strangers that approached. Whatever Jun had planned to say was swallowed by silence. Owlish eyes watched Legion's emissaries with her brow furrowed. Her beak opened and closed rapidly, clicking as Kru'Gorah came down the aisle. It was a nervous habit that she'd yet to break along with shivering to ruffle the copper feathers that dripped down her head and fell to her shoulders. "Trust her," Jun said. It was hard to tell if Jun said it more for herself or Rin at her side. __________________________________ Meanwhile, Akako seemed unperturbed by the arrival of The Legion despite the way the air soured with the scent of unease that the crowd emanated. She recalled the wraith on the night of the Festival, and she had wondered how long their King would wait before appearing before her. It was fortunate that she was a patient woman, or the kitsune would have gone hunting for him. Instead, she busied herself with other tasks leading up until now, nearly forgetting about the fated meeting altogether. There had been a veiled threat tacked onto the end of what the wraith told her, a threat she found wasted. The demoness wouldn't hide from anyone, certainly not someone that made a point to find her. It seemed their King deemed that it was time to move things along; however, he hadn't come himself. Part of her wondered why, but she assumed he had his reasons. So, she was left looking down from the stage to the three strangers that had come on behalf of their leader. Each of them unique in appearance, but none so unusual that she was startled by them. There weren't many demons or monsters that she hadn't been exposed to over her lifespan. Still, there was a glint of mild intrigue in her vulpine eyes for a brief moment before vanishing. Beyond that, Akako remained impassive, her mask of indifference carefully placed. It appeared that the reputation of her taking in strays was widely known at this point. A slender brow rose a fraction as she listened to Kru'Gorah concisely explained their need for asylum only to be followed by speaking the name of her enemy followed by an ally. It was clear this creature was well educated based on how articulate he was, and that was something Akako appreciated immensely. It was also very telling that this Dark Lord they followed possibly valued such things. However, it seemed as if they weren't very knowledgeable of Akako's friends and foes. Remaining silent, the demoness turned her cold gaze to the well-dressed goblin. An awkward fellow, he was, but he spoke the name of their leader, Dredge. It wasn't a name she was familiar with; however, she had gathered information regarding The Legion and what had happened at Last Chance. It was unexpected that they had chosen this method to approach Akako rather than using more violent means. It was that very reason that Akako didn't trust that legitimacy of this suggested alliance. Finally, a woman stepped forward to say her piece, and Akako's eyes fell to her. She was the most normal of the three; however, it was abundantly clear that she wasn't human. Both scent and appearance gave her away. It wasn't until she spoke that Akako realized that the woman known as Lilith was not with Kru'Gorah and Privo. She offered the daiyokai another obscure name, Altre, and a mysterious business proposition. What was fascinating to the Regent, was Lilith had called her Queen. Perhaps the rumors of being the Yokai Queen had reached the ears of Altre. With the new faces quieting themselves, Akako looked up to the rest in attendance. Her nose twitched as she discretely took in the hundreds of scents that filled the auditorium. It was easy for the vixen to deduce that emotions were running high, not that she could blame anyone for that. The sour scent of worry, notes of citrus, and a hint of spice that wafted from above. Vulpine eyes remained forward, not lifting to find the source. "First, thank you all for coming today. There is plenty to cover, and This One will address questions." Akako addressed the crowd then Akako's focus returned to Kru'Gorah. "Kru'Gorah and Privo, This One will meet your King... Dredge," she spoke the name as if to commit it to memory. "However, This One will advise you not to assume the relationships that This One may or may not have in the future. Rafael is no threat to you or your people so long as the discussion with Dredge goes well. Inform Dredge that he is to arrive at my estate as the sun rises tomorrow. Negotiations will commence then." Turning her attention to Lilith, Akako addressed her as well. "Lilith, stay after the announcement. We can discuss it further." The Lady of the Void returned her attention to her people and this time she did offer a ghost of a smile, her lips tilting just enough to afford them a glimpse of something akin to kindness on her features. "As all of you may know. Port Caelum has been a sovereign nation under not one, but two empires. We have been inundated with policies from two entities that are unfamiliar with our economy, our society, and our way of life. As of today, Port Caelum will only fall under the Carmine Empire's rule which will lessen the burden of taxes and allow more flexibility to place regulations that make sense to you, the people of Port Caelum." "As a result, This One will no longer be the Regent of Port Caelum, but Queen of Taiyōmichi. We will not be restricted to this plot of land we currently inhabit; we will expand which will provide more resources and jobs. This is an opportunity for all of us." "To all of you that wondered if and when we could change, this is your answer. We can. We can be the example, the presence that is necessary for the extraordinary transformation that we will bring about in Genesaris. This One thanks all of you for the sacrifices you make each and every day for the good of our city. We will be so much more than a city. We will rise no matter your race, no matter what god or god's you worship. We will draw strength in our diversity and rise."

    'We are at the precipice for restoring order to our country.' He wasn't exactly sure why that statement ruffled his feathers, but it certainly did. Each house has done their part in their way to provide a better life to the people left on Ursa Madeum, all the while giving themselves some foothold above the rest. Mostly as an outsider, the Mythal House has possibly been the least active of them all, but they have provided aid here and there, shown they accept all with open arms, and a variety of other humanitarian things. As far as the elf is concerned, order was already established, it's now a fight to keep it there. 'We can't just have a Monarchy anymore, the temptation of power is too great for any one man or woman to handle on their own.' It can't be denied that anyone would not love to have their chance to show what they are capable of, and when given enough power and freedom to do so, they certainly would. But it's not power that should be feared or sneered at, it is the person holding it, and that therein is the main problem. A person should be responsible enough to understand the power given to them and use it responsibly, not abuse it or misuse the opportunity they've been given. Ursa Madeum has seen the abuse of power, how it can change the people, and the histories they hold so dearly. They've seen how a single person can be an extreme issue to the health of their home. Ampelos spoke next, laying out their proposition clean and comfortable for them all to understand. Clear, simple, and expressing a matter that will make some at the table shift uncomfortably in their chairs. They are offering a change, something that Godric has painted a necessary thing if Ursa Madeum wishes to go forward and not be stagnant. 'And how are you proposing these positions are filled? If there is no king to make appointments, and if you likewise desire to ween the nobility from their rightful places, then I must assume you have something else in mind?' And that and the few other questions started things. A few more back and forths were exchanged between the few speakers at the table, giving promise to both their suggestions that made it somewhat challenging to stay in one's lane. He did not have the right expertise for these kinds of conversations; the rest have shown they've done their homework and are here to change things for good or bad. Milorian wished he could tap into the elven pride you hear so much about, but he hasn't the energy or the care to exchange barbs over this situation. Instead, he weighs what's been said and remains quiet until he has gathered all his thoughts and noted every opinion. "A sovereign who reigns but does not rule. Someone who has the right to be consulted, a right to encourage, and the right to warn." He finally spoke, hoping he wasn't interrupting anyone. "Instead of a hereditary monarchy, an elective monarchy would be more fitting. This sovereign would exercise their authority following a written constitution, with executive power while holding numerous reserve powers. Overall, their everyday use would be performing ceremonial functions." Unlike Godric who had handed out them all some reading material, Milorian spoke to them all with calm inclusiveness. "To include other suggestions, we can break this down a bit. There can be a section of bodies that will approve laws and another section that will represent the people, both having speakers to keep things relatively reasonable." If that's even possible, he can't honestly say. A few seem to be going high and low with what they're feeling, which he can't blame any of them for doing so. "Or we break down more. There is our Sovereign; after them, there is our Premier, then stemming from them is the body of our entire government, led by the Premier. In our case I see the Premier being more of a representative for the body of government, who will ensure that customary authority, privilege, and immunity of a constitution are exercised appropriately by the Sovereign - if needed." He is only adding more to the entire mess, but these are his thoughts. A mix of both worlds in a way, leaving the primary factor of acceptance or denial lying in whether a monarch will be removed or kept.

    The Oathsworn was a matter that could be handled later, Godric thought. What was truly important was the center of their entire reason for being here in this place. A new government was required of this country was going to go forward. After taking a faint moment, Godric spoke, taking out from a pack on the side of the wheelchair a stack of papers. "Lords and Ladies of this council, we are at the precipice for restoring order to our country. This will be the moment recorded in the history books, but we must insure that this moment is considered our greatest triump, and not our greatest folly." Passing the papers to the either side of him so they could be distributed to the others. "We can do better, better than Damien, better than even the Queen before him. With this new government, we can usher in a new age of prosperity to Ursa Madeum." "We can't just have a Monarchy anymore, the temptation of power is too great for any one man or woman to handle on their own. Checks and safeguards must be put in place, or else the cycle will start all over again. With this, I believe we shall achieve that goal." When each of the nobility had received a copy, he elaborated further. "We will have a monarch, but they will serve more as a figurehead, a catalyst of the council that serves underneath. Each member of this council will be in charge of a separate sphere of influence that they will be in charge of. Defense, Agriculture, Magic and State. These spheres will be headed by one of us, with the monarch also chosen by one of us. We will do away with bloodline succession, with this monarch being chosen by who we believe to be the best candidate." "With this system in place, we can ensure that no member has too much power, for it is divided amongst the others members of the council. Our king and queen will hear the councils words, decide on a course of action, and put it to a vote within the council itself. No one has the power to overrule the other, and conflicts are decided by the ruling monarch." He sighed, hoping to have caught their attention at the very least. Those who had seen it before will have likely recognized it as the altered works of his father before him. Oscar had fallen far, but before the worst of his madness came to him, this was perhaps the only thing he had which could redeem him. Now Godric took up the task of trying to have it passed, even if it meant his father would never be credited with the idea, if it passed.

    Valucre and Discord - feedback

    I believe that creating a discord chat room is a bad idea. The idea seems good on the surface, but in my experience such chats tend to shift the focus of a roleplay group away from roleplay and toward chat clique dynamics. The fun of the chat becomes the fun of chatting, and not the fun of whatever subject the chat was made to facilitate. Chats are also passively exclusionary because users without regular access to the chat are at best relegated to noncontributing observers, and at worst simply absent from the fast moving culture of inside jokes, offers to start new plots, and general camaraderie that develops in such an environment. What is the purpose of a chat? Is it to allow fast and efficient communication between the majority of the site's roleplayers? If so, it will likely not accomplish that for the reasons I stated above. Nor do we particularly need a faster mechanism for the purposes of interest checks, they are functional on the forums, where they benefit from a level of slowness which allows people of all time zones to peruse them at their leisure. In the end, chat rooms are good for certain people, like me considering I work from home, who want to socialize because they're bored. They do not seem, however, to contribute overmuch to the efficiency or cohesion of the larger site. Take a look at the Valucre chat we have right now, which has become the hangout grounds for about 7 specific people, who mostly use it to, I don't even know, stare off into the distance a lot. It's not a productive place, and its flurry of activity conceals the truth that it doesn't really serve the larger community much at all. On the flip side, my Coth discord contains only Cothite roleplayers, and it's an extremely efficient way of marshaling the Coth writers toward events, keeping them active, and creating a fantastic sense of community. Discord is great for small groups, and that's all that ever really seems to develop in them anyway.

    Valucre and Discord

    Due to a combination of impressive feature enhancements on multiple platforms, my staff and I have reconsidered supporting an external chat client for the site. The primary driver is the existence of an integration which did not exist at the time that we tried Discord previously: https://invisioncommunity.com/files/file/9287-brilliant-discord-integration/ Picking through it you'll see that it costs money as a premium plugin (and is covered by donations), but isn't very expensive up front or for subscription support, and that it provides a very tightly coupled integration with the forum software. The single most important feature that this provides is Identity Management. This is a keystone for security and community management. Roles and access can now be tied back to Valucre accounts. Previously, the way Discord users worked added considerable overhead. Further to that are the improvements Discord has made to its platform. The ability to nest channels did not exist when we ran the original Valucre Discord (at least not until the end I don't think), their automated NSFW filter has greatly improved (we are not an 18+ site), the number of advanced Discord bots (which can do things like log deleted messages to help avoid members who try to obscure their malice) has proliferated, and things like that. We are excited to try these new features and offer them to our members. Additionally we'll be applying Lessons Learned and automatically denying access to anyone who has had action taken against their accounts either on the forum or on the original Valucre Discord subject to our discretion. At the end of a to-be-determined amount of time we'll re-evaluate any blocked accounts for good behavior. Would you use this if we implemented it? What would you use it for? Any other thoughts?

    Le roi est mort, vive la reine

    Pallas thought of the worldrift weapons in Kuiperal. “True.” Tynes’ statement changed, edging slightly towards agreement. That would do. “Excellent.” Pallas smiled. “They’re Petrolem-based, aren’t they?” Rozharon had seen them, and swept her sight over them, and shown him their construction and make. Interesting weapons. It’d be even more interesting to see what Khartes’ engineers could make of them. In his periphery, Pallas caught a glimpse of Orisia’s Black Queen arriving. Should I-? At any rate, it was time to make his leave. He extended a hand to each of the Norkotians. “Anyway, it was a pleasure meeting you three.” Off he went, making a beeline to the counter for a drink. @Tyler Two strangers arrived; Lenore was surprised to see Hyperion’s empress and her son. “Greetings Empress Raveena,” he directed a short bow to her, then to the man at her side. “Sir Grant. You’re not intruding at all,” he added with a smile, returning his gaze to her. After a moment of pondering the emergencies of Hyperion, he nodded in agreement to her question. Golden eyes settled on the paladin once more. Spare no detail, indeed. @jaistlyn @Malintzin @danzilla3 Koji had been at Tia. He was one of those rulers who involved themselves in these matters. Rozharon listened quietly as he spoke, taking note of his dismissal of the attackers. The event was devastating enough; it was doubtlessly caused by a well-organized, well-equipped group. Perhaps another detail to be brought up at the next summit of the allied nations. The corner of the Empress’ mouth turned up in a bittersweet smile. “A loss is a loss. The deaths of a few shouldn’t be trivialized in the wake of a massacre. All deserve to be honored. But, I’m glad to hear their efforts were not in vain.” She mulled over his proposition, weighing the risks and benefits of accepting more refugees. It was a good opportunity, and opportunities could branch out infinitely. “An agreement could certainly be arranged,” she repeated. “Taen is vast; its cities continue to grow, and there is no shortage of resources. They could be distributed between the four cities under Veluriyam rule, or if necessary, a new settlement be constructed to house them. If they are hesitant to enter the pocket dimension, I could recommend relocating them to Everrun. It’s a small town under Veluriyam’s protection, though it’s less developed than our cities.

    Her heart is about to give out any second now, she reckons. The free hand she’s placed over her chest does little to help settle it down, much less the choice she is about to make. Varda looks about the table, the empty chairs and the uneasy glances hidden behind masks of formality, and sees nothing but chaos in their future. In this regard, she finally concedes to the written note her brother has laid out for her in the meagre parchment that she has in her hands; perhaps this is what Jasper had meant, when he had told her that she would be the one to lead them into a radiant future, all those months before in the direct aftermath of their father’s death and her subsequent ascension to headship. Varda looks down at the words half-shadowed by her own fingers and gains the courage she needs to voice out this resolution. There is none fit to rule us but ourselves. If you cannot be Queen, then we shall make a kingdom of our own. “I would like to declare,” the Lady Hildebrand begins with a voice that threatens to give out but continues unsteadily on through, “that House Hildebrand will not stand with the decision of the majority in this assembly.” Her wandering gaze pivots to the seated Empress as she speaks her next words. “We will be forming a kingdom of our own, a realm under the dominion of our House, with myself as the acting ruler. Our way of life sees no need for change that would otherwise threaten the delicate balance that fuels our peace and prosperity, and so I reckon we are better off ruling over our own.” Somewhere in the night-sky shadows of the balcony, Varda swears she can see the shattered half moon of her brother’s smile.

    The harpies eyed Fidelitas warily, the child-like faces variously displaying grief and rage. Kana and Kyla approached the anchor ropes, but stayed their claws, waiting for someone else to speak. "Eight of ours have fed the jungle to save our chicks," growled Kiernan. Her pixie-cut black hair shifted in the wind and her green eyes narrowed. "We're going to have eight fewer clutches next season, even if we can find mates for all of us. So if you want three to cross, you must also offer three to stay and be our mates. The rest go to the jungle. They can either jump, be pushed, or simply live alone on their barren rock until the jungle comes and takes them. Don't take too long to think on it, walker."

    I like to keep my introductions tl;dr so I'll keep this brief. I'm really into what I've read about Valucre so far. Loving the variety it offers. The new member guide was helpful. I'm not sure where I'll start just yet or what sort of character I'll create but I've got my sights set on eventually making my mark in the canon. Check put my profile if you're interested in seeing some of my hobbies and interests. I'll be back in about a day. Until then, feel free to leave any questions, opinions or ideas you might have.

Might have to update Abby a little in the coming months, but I'll get to it when I get to it. Excelleeeeent. 👌 And thank you! More stuff! So this is my own drawing "style", or whatever the hell passes for a drawing style. To be fair to myself, I was drawing without any references, but doesn't change the fact that the proportions and shit suck. But whatever, was just looking for a quick depiction of the cast of cretins I threw to their doom in Yh'mi: Now, this next one I can only claim partial credit for. The art itself was done by the ever hilarious @zackrobbman, I just made a colored vector version of it. What you see here is the finale of Chasing Legends, a super fun RP organized by the also super fun @jaistlyn . From top left to right and then down: The Cursor (me), Trey Tyrrell (@Laughingmad), Clive McTeague (Zack), Erin Hale (me), Ignus (@Hurttoto) and Meritio Rivas (Jaistlyn). Of course, outside of those of us in that RP, none of you people are gonna understand what the heck the context of all this is, but trust me, it's weirder than you think. Disclaimer: Clive is wearing underwear under there, thank goodness. Zack's original art: Also a JoJo reference:

    Hopefully I don't get in trouble for bumping an old thread like this, but I'm repurposing this as a general showcase for other shit I make too. So, some logos. First here's my Norkotian Union Flag: Though, I'm sure everyone's seen this by this point (uh, because it's in my frickin' avatar), so this is not really showing off much. I'm thinking on doing a couple redesigns too, one for the pre-Union confederation, and also for the next phase of Norkotia, since my current trajectory has been altered. But more on that later. Next comes a company I created early-on in Norkotia's history, and which I intend to use increasingly in the future: I'm honestly pretty proud of this one, given how many things you can read into the name, logo and color scheme. And then for something more humorous. Norkotia is, in many way, Valucre's own version of America (just with a lot more German naming). And you see, no America, real or parody, could possibly be complete without that wonderful thing we call "Fast Food".

    Tsukimi Ceremony

    The little one was quiet, a strange change to one so full of curiosity that nearly spills from her very being. She had wanted to see the whole goings on due to the hum about the ceremony. There was so much to be said about it, making the adults get all dressed up in celebration and the commoners itch with anticipation. There was absolutely no way she was going to allow her father just to enjoy this moment without her being there, not when she can learn so much about these parties adults fear and enjoy so much. Within the shadows, the little one lurked, weaving through the legs of bystanders and slipping by hovering forms with too much ease. Not a day of training, but already she was allowing the natural flow of the world around her to push and pull her. The intricacies of what she is have made the little one aware of how much of the worlds magic and life flows through her, but the understanding of such eludes her sweet mind. What matters, according to her mother, is how wide she smiles, how loud she laughs, and how proud she makes her father. Everything else will come in time, and with that in mind, there is no need to rush to become a more magnificent piece to the puzzle that's her family lineage. Beside him, the shadows shift to reveal the delicate form of Kaori who had a ready smile pasted on her face. Dressed appropriately for a child with high honors attached to her name, and not like a child who had rolled in mud hours before or stomped through flower gardens chasing frogs. Grabbing handfuls of the delicate fabric, the child climbed into her father's lap with as much grace as a toddler can ever muster. The flower charms attached to the pin in her hair swung back and forth, creating a small tune as she gets comfortable in her proclaimed seat. "Pèrtè!" The Renovatian word for Father slid past her lips with ease, and the proud achievement was exemplified by a small giggle followed by a kiss to her father's cheek. Celine had been teaching her both languages, but Kaori found the Renovatian lilt to be more fun in comparison to her father's language. He had yet to say anything about what he'd prefer her to say, what language would better her as his child and make him proud, so she followed her mother's advice under otherwise told. Happy, the toddler sat up to look over the edge of the balcony. The entire scene of wonderment was unfolding before her, yet the little one did not appear at all interested in any of it. Maybe living a rather luxurious life has dampened her excitement towards anything this grand, or perhaps her childish mind was far too occupied by something else. When she found what she was looking for, her honey-colored eyes became bright, and the excitement she had withheld was soon released. "Ozu! Ozu!" She waved her arms excitedly, thinking he'd see her wave at him with all her might.

    Acrophobia (Nightmare Realm 2:2B)

    Weirdly, it seemed like the herpes harpies listened to Dan, and chose not to attack him. Instead they very wisely chose to run back to their nest to protect their harpy spawn. Dan was not complaining here, he didn't want to have to genocide-ify harpies for one team member's fuck up. Hold on, hold on, he didn't say that. Doesn't matter, fourth wall broken. Continue. Umm... what? Don't worry about it. While Dan did not at all like the idea of retreat, He liked the idea of ending up fighting loads of harpies with the others out of range even less, especially with dice combat in place. So, he began floating backward back across the bridge. Well, not really across the bridge as he was still floating above it like the most epic boss of all time, so fine he floated in the direction of the reverse of where he was initially headed. So he floated backward. Congratulations Hollow, another simple point said long.

    Misral on Fire

    pallas Fireline. Fire line. Fire. Line. Pallas decided against flying. No, the flames were spreading too fast, and despite the regeneration wildlight granted him, feathers were quite flammable. Guzon leapt into his hand. Pallas felt the Oathblade's strength crash into him like a wave, and he grinned. He ran into the forest, chasing the heat of the fires spreading northward. One hand gripped the Oathblade, another was held out to his side, fingers splayed. Trees turned to dust in his wake, burning embers breaking down into ash. The ground sculpted itself before him, growing even, creating footholds. This is fun, Pallas thought. lenore That takes care of the lava, I guess. Lenore sat before the crevasse, watching the golden-orange river of molten rock below. He inhaled, letting wildlight wash over him. The relief was immediate; the fatigue faded away in seconds. A strange euphoria burned in his veins. Not too much, Lenore reminded himself. The prince climbed to his feet, breathing heavily, and unfolded his wings. Soon, he was a fleck in the sky, making a beeline towards the volcano and towards his brother. And then, the elemental died. Pallas fell to his knees, gasping, as the wildlight in his system was snuffed out. Lenore found himself on the ground, his wings heavy as lead. What happened? Pallas asked, coughing. The fires were all but extinguished. Thick smoke filled the air. Lenore watched an elf making channels for the lava flow. His thoughts were thick as syrup. Didn't I already make a canal? Pallas tightened his grip on Guzon and managed to stand. Wildlight's gone. Almost gone. He felt out with his awareness, felt the faintest tinge of magic buried deep underground. Well, what do you know. Lenore dragged himself to his feet. He blinked hard. Guess that's one way to wound a Genius Loci. The world was dark and cold and empty, and gone was the familiar golden glow of life that once threaded through every living creature. We have to get out of here. Pallas drew on Guzon's strength and started running. Agreed. Where to, though? As one, they turned and looked towards the mountain, at the shadow-wreathed figure making its way down the slope. Mom's going to want to know what that's about. Definitely.

    The was a dejected feeling in Abigail's chest as she heard Ampelos's explanation, not because the idea was bad or disappointing, rather, the opposite. It was the realization that Dali may have a point, and that she had been out-of-line (at least to an extent) in her first salvo (she still felt that Dali ought to have sent their leader). In any case, there was a rational behind the Dali proposal that she understood and appreciated, especially given her own experiences with her uncle and aunt, cousin and half-brother, all of whom were victims (if such a word was appropriate) of the complacency brought on by the comfortable certainty of their social position. Meanwhile, she herself had to fight tooth and nail to assume her spot as head of the house, even having to go as far as assassination, in order to ensure House Karradeen was not left in the hands of the undeserving. "Perhaps I was a too hasty in my initial assumptions, sir. Forgive me." she spoke first, a bit coldly, but crisply, "I see that your proposal is not without merit." But that being said, she had no desire to see all that had been built by her forefathers be reduced to nothing by central government with major exploitable loopholes. Knowing as she did that corruption was inevitable, she still wanted to be certain that the rights of her house (and those of her peers) would be assured under the new regime. And indeed, Godric went into a spiel about the dangers of a republic and racism, or perhaps, the dangers of other races themselves within a republic. Abigail figured she understood the jist of the potential problem, she also figured that it did not automatically disqualify a republic if it were set up carefully. And she could already feel the wheels turning in the mind of the Dali representative, as he was no doubt preparing a rebuttal to Godric's assertion. She instead decided to make a move first. "Considering both proposals, I believe there is an opportunity for a compromise." she spoke again, neutral and professional in tone, "First, to be clear, I believe it should be considered a requirement of any governmental charter that the current holdings, rights, regional powers and wealth of the Houses be assured and undisturbed. Such was already implied, but I believe I speak for all of us when I say we would like that laid out clearly and without question. I then, do not see issue if the Houses act as the selectors for both the representatives of the proposed council, as well as a monarch to act as... shall we say the presider or chairman over the council. It would be their task to mediate disputes, or break ties in times of gridlock, as well as act as the figurehead of the government, as Godric suggests. I believe that central figure, even if they do not hold great power, can remain useful as a spokesman for the state, particularly in times of crisis." She slide her hand across the documents Godric had provided idly, whilst collecting her thoughts, while her eyes turned again toward Ampelo. "But as Lord Uldwar suggests, there is a risk that over time, or perhaps even very quickly, we could be overtaken by a variety of non-human races. How can we can be assured our government won't soon be ruled by goblins or fae or vampires, all of which have colorful histories, at best, when it relates to humans. And while we are on this subject, I have an additional inquiry to put forth: What would be the mechanism to enforce accountability within the houses? If the representatives are selected by us, and likewise the hypothetical monarch, what entity is to determine if a house is no longer the greatest house in their particular field? Who or what determines what new houses can come into being, if any, and what houses may or may not be punished for transgressions against the whole?" That could be a dealbreaker, depending on what the man from Dali answered...

    Abigail clinched a fist at her side, but otherwise held back the anger she could feel boiling up inside her at the condescension shown to her by both the representatives of Kholin and Dali. Indeed, had this been a more private setting, she may have elected to shoot the Dali peon for calling her a "dame", a title meant for a knight's wife, rather than her proper title of duchess. But as it was, she held all the rage in. She couldn't, after all, speak counter-points to their republic idea itself until she heard what exactly they were proposing with it. Still, the options they may propose were all problematic, no matter how one sliced them. The lesser evil would be to simply have the heads of the houses, or an appointed representative, sit on the council permanently (until death or relief by the head of house), thus ensuring a sense of continuity. But even then, the dithering that would result from such a council would be debilitating toward any matter of progress, and the houses would likely just continue handling things on their own in order to get things done, while the council argued and debated on in the background. But if they actually intended to turn power over to the commoners though, that was another matter entirely... "The monarchy is no less prone to shortcomings than republics and democracies, based on what few have managed to survive elsewhere on Valucre. And the fact that so few have risen and lasted ought give us pause on the matter in and of itself. Regardless, I will hear your proposal before I speak further on the matter." She then held her peace as she waited for several others to speak in succession, Godric offering his modified version of Oscar's constitution, which was acceptable enough, though it still seemed that king or queen may not be strong enough to resolve conflicts decisively. Then Dali spoke again, suggesting the figurehead was unnecessary altogether, then laying bare their true colors. Indeed, it was a plan to gradually phase the houses out of power and replace them with commoners. Perhaps they thought that education could produce people with the capability to govern, but such a thought was absurd to Abigail. She had been raised since birth to lead, given the finest education, exposed to all the nuances of politics, business and personnel management. While it was true that many in the nobility were unsuited to lead, like her late half-brother or her lazy cousin, that did not automatically mean there were commoners who were better. These were people who were good at their craft, but little more. To expect a blacksmith to understand how to handle management of his business from a governmental perspective was foolish, for he would be looking at it from the perspective of a common blacksmith, one who didn't have the capacity to see the bigger picture. But more than that, this form of government was sure to impede efficiency even further, if the proposal for two-year terms was to be taken seriously. How could one expect to get anything done with such rapid turnover? "And how are you proposing these positions are filled? If there is no king to make appointments, and if you likewise desire to ween the nobility from their rightful places, then I must assume you have something else in mind? And further, if the term limit is to be a mere two years, with a maximum of four, how are you intending to alleviate the instability created by the continuous turnover? It will be far too easy for new representatives to overturn the edicts of previous ones if the change of power is done in such a short period of time. And further, one who has not been raised in politics as nobles are will need considerable time to gain experience in the field, but by the time that happens they may already be out of power." She had no doubts that she would be opposing the idea either way, for she was not going to let the house that her forefathers had built be reduced to irrelevancy, not after she'd poured so much blood, sweat and tears into obtaining her rank and trying to restore Karradeen's lost wealth and prestige. The questions she now asked were a matter of making clear Dali's stance, so that she could oppose what they actually represented and not what she thought they represented.

    " . . is no republic." Ampelos brought his hand to his mouth again, stifling most of his laughter before it managed to erupt into the open air. "Of course not, dame Karradeen. Were that the republic was already formed there would be no need for any of us to be meeting now. Astounding how far a little logic can carry one, is it not?" Meanwhile the inflated Abigail made earnest her attempt at dressing him down, Ampelos busied himself with buffing his nails. He made it a point to look up from his task and lock eyes with her, so she couldn't possibly confuse his blatant disinterest with anything even remotely resembling anxiety, and graciously allowed her to conclude without interruption. It was directly after her final word that House Kholin stepped up and laid her flat. Meanwhile Alexandros spoke, Ampelos folded his hands one over the other and laid them to rest on the table, his eyes locked onto the speaker without variance. He nodded in agreement and put the final stroke on it himself prior to their collective movement into discussing Oscar's fate. "My Lady informed your Empress Rozharon both of her opinion and her disinclination to personally attend a meeting such as this one. My Lady's house was still invited to sit at the table, and I have been sent as a fully vested party capable of speaking for my Lady's house. If you take issue with this, I suggest you request of your Empress for an aside and discourse privately. For the time being, let us respect the Empress's agenda." # # # So much for that, Ampelos thought to himself, smiling for all the world to see. Full in its warmth, years of politicking had given him the requisite veneer he had to let only that authentic satisfaction shine through while muting the contempt which kindled it. Ampelos laid his hand on the stack of papers after rifling through their contents meanwhile Godric spoke of them. "There is much good here Godric. You are a credit to your house. Our vision of Ursa Madeum's future aligns in many ways. Where it diverges, Dali's blueprint accounts for any shortcomings. It does not concern itself with the unnecessary ceremony of a figurehead, for example. It does not assume that every person who sits at this table currently is entitled to the responsibility of public office, for another example, doing away with the concept of inherited succession at all levels. What's good for the goose is good for the gander, no? "To that end Dali's value proposition is that our nation should shift its governance structure to that of a technocratic[1] republic[2], with two 2-year term limits for representatives. Spheres of influence such as Godric has proposed as well, but more granular: Commerce, Justice, Transportation, Education and the like, to name a few. We anticipate the first four terms will be exclusively occupied by members of noble houses by sheer virtue of generational wealth, refined resources, organized personnel and infrastructure, and education. "But the goal is to break that for-granted chain of succession such that the whole of our citizenry can be expected to produce potential candidates of requisite quality within one, no more than two, generations. "We can no longer afford to compete amongst ourselves and must instead become competitors to others operating at grander scales. We must remove ourselves as pieces on a board and become players. Or eyes sharper than ours will invite hands stronger to try and take whatever appeals. They may not all be so . . . generous as Veluriyam has been." 1: "a proposed system of governance in which decision-makers are selected on the basis of their expertise in a given area of responsibility, particularly with regard to scientific or technical knowledge." 2: "a form of government in which the country is considered a “public matter”, not the private concern or property of the rulers. The primary positions of power within a republic are not inherited, but are attained through democracy, oligarchy or autocracy (in this case by technocracy). It is a form of government under which the head of state is not a hereditary monarch."

    Aveline just leaned back, stunned, and disgusted at herself for just doing what she often accuses Thurgood of: acting without fully appreciating the concequences. It had been before Thurgood even thought about helping Ursa Madeum recover, and it's the kind of merc job that seemed perfectly suited to her abilities. Of course there's a pistol holstered on her belt, there always is, which likely went unnoticed due to its constant presence. Aveline starts thinking of how the fuck she's gonna get herself out of this one. The mag in her new 1911 and the two in the pouches only have 32 poly-capped hollow-point rounds among them, but each one has a charge of nitricellulose, which some magical bullshit in Terrenus makes shooting a dangerous risk, but dying while fighting doesn't seem as bad as rotting away in prison waiting for a kangaroo trial to find her guilty of everything Damien Gilluck did, Analea Decameron's murder, and a fuckton of bullshit that never happened.

    @Praetorian Hue hue hue... I am glad you asked! There are roles that I have already set, however, they are NPCs which can be controlled by people within the organization depending on what influential tier and prestige ranking you've acquired. Basically, it isn't the position that is of interest to you or any other RPer, but the authority to use a certain level of power within the empire as it expands. For instance, say a higher ranked RPer was writing with a lower ranked RPer, the higher ranked RPer would be able to exercise the most influence over the NPC's regardless of who owns the thread. So, when you first start you would be tier 0, so you have no control over any of the NPC's, but as you rise in ranks you basically have access to more. That being said, there is a cap on how many "cooks" there will be in the kitchen. And to get to the highest tier, there needs to be a substantial amount of work put in.The reason for that is the influence tier system is basically a symbol of trust in you (or another player). Basically, if I am going to let you drive my car, I need to trust that you're dedicated to my cause. Hopefully that makes sense.

    Valucre and Discord - feedback

    I’m not an active chatter, I might pop in once in a while but notifications will be muted in general except for direct mentions. That’s the one thing I believe Discord has an advantage over the current Val chat - the ability to get notifications when someone wants your attention (even if it’s just for casual stuff). A whole Val chat would move too fast for plotting purposes I believe. I would use it just for informal chit chat.

    Acrophobia (Nightmare Realm 2:2B)

    The notion of mating was ridiculous, but the structure of the bridge put them at a severe disadvantage. If only they were fighting on flat ground, then they could clinch an overwhelming victory. However, as it was now, the harpies just had to cut the bridge and there would be no way for the full numbers of their forces to reach their enemies. Murray’s suggestion was bravado, but it was just a quick way to ensure all of their deaths. “I accept your proposition. We will discuss who crosses and who stays,” Fidelitas said loudly, his gaze never leaving the lead harpy, although the words were meant for Murray as well. The harpies had no objections to that, so the paladin tore his gaze away and levelled it on Murray. “We go back and let the rest know.” ((OOC temporary note: the below paragraphs may be edited if people on the bridge resist going back to the plateau)) The harpies did not molest them on their way back, and Fidelitas was at least a little glad when they finally set foot on the solid ground. He was not able to take much of a breather however, not when so many eyes and faces were fixated on him, expecting explanation and instruction. “There’s a door on the other side,” he said. “These bird ladies will let three people cross-“ he paused here “-If three will stay to become their mates.” The second condition sounded even worse than the last one. “The rest will have to stay on this piece of land and look for another way out.” A longer pause here, as he let his words sink in. He hoped that there weren’t anyone dishonourable among them who would attempt to push anyone off so that they could be the ones to cross safely. “I will be willing to put myself among the harpies.” He was sure the harpies themselves were listening to their discussion, so he couldn’t be blatant. But if he lived among them, he would have a chance of tearing them apart from within, therefore opening up the plateau for the rest of them to arrive. The three who would be moving through the door risked not knowing what lay ahead, but if they selected the correct people, perhaps they could bring help as well. There was still a chance they could all survive.

    Oscar Ulwar’s (well what’s left of him) lover, Riha Carthrage has gone missing! Stolen from Port Mars, directly from the Uldwar house itself. She’s vanished without a trace. The only clues left behind - a threatening unsigned note previously in Riha’s possession. Perhaps she is of significance, perhaps not. But locating her could provide just about anything - revenge on house Uldwar? Blackmail? Useful information? Leverage over the soon to be Lady Mithal (Riha’s Twin)? Another third party is offering a great reward for the return of his wrongfully taken and sullied daughter - Vector Carthrage himself. Regardless, be the first to find her - dead or alive - and it could provide advantageous. @Infernal

    Soon you'll see

    @Tyler "Soon, I will witness my people withdraw from their religious beliefs and be limited to perform immense magical feats." Primera allowed the conversation to idle there when the ruckus down below picked up in tempo. Relaxing a bit, she tips her head to the side to listen in on what is being proposed between the individuals at the table. This kind of drama is fascinating to her as it kept you on your toes, you don't know if someone is going to concede peacefully or if someone is going to end up getting shot in the end. Her council was not as lively as this one, and it made her wonder why. In the end, Milorian's proposal had her turning her blind gaze downwards. The body of government he had suggested was painfully close to what Renovatio has. It has always been that way back home; they were never given a reason to change the government, especially since none of the bodies on the council have done anything against the people. Well, there was that one time, but it was that one person some years ago and they had been acting mostly alone. Other than that small blemish, the sovereign and council have worked together seamlessly, giving her a somewhat privileged life. "I can praise such a system," she said, tapping her chin. "Though, Renovatio has never had a situation where a Grand Kommadant, Sovereign, or council member needed to be removed from power." Not until herself, that is. She understands her plans mean going against the very heart of what keeps her people functioning, and it will mar her name further, but the benefits outweigh the risk. "Well, things have certainly taken a turn." Her comment was on the gentleman leaving the council with all the flare and kindness of a gentleman. "What do you think of this meeting so far, Joseph?"

    It would be incorrect to say that he is dressed in shadows. Truth be told, it’s rather the opposite. The interior of the capitol building has no dimly lit corners, nor shadowy crevices to hide in. Although he sits on a chandelier, just beneath the skylight, his attire is only the slightest shade off from being as white as the vaulted ceiling. While it is completely impossible for him to be undetectable, he is banking on being unnoticeable. Not because of any one thing that he has done or will do, but because when compared to the Djinn… there is no reason to notice him. Those that distract, are in fact, the best camouflage. “Hmm.” The sound is an inaudible murmur thanks to the dull roar of the people below. He had, for the briefest of seconds, considered trying to put a knife through the fox lady’s eye. However, the more he watched, the more he realizes that it is an impossible task. Not that he thinks he is incapable of delivering an attack and escaping, but rather that the situation would not permit him to deliver a meaningful attack. There are simply too many people…. And that fucking Christmas tree looking monster thing, some kind of yuletide tree ent. “Maybe it’s not an ent.” Another murmur as he considers the distinct lack of bark and foliage. His knees are pulled into his chest, his arms plopped atop them. His chin drops down to rest on his arms, as he continues to analyze the situation. If he were to strike, it would have to be a decisive blow, dealt from afar, delivered with unbelievable speed. He’d probably need to take her head. Anything short of that would see him contending with who knew how many people, and the not Christmas Tree plus its wig wearing elf… all while Akako escaped. Any attempt to neutralize them first, would see her escaping. All roads appear to lead to her escaping. Within this line of work, Shi understands that you either wait for an opportunity or create one. In this particularly situation, the assassin concludes that his only choice is to wait.

    Le roi est mort, vive la reine

    An air of solemnity and bittersweetness hung in the air. Sweet that Titus was surrounded by people whose lives he had touched, and bitter that he was no longer with them. Titus was a good man, and that much was obvious by the touching eulogies delivered by those who had gathered to see the Emperor to his final resting place. Videntia had not had the privilege to meet the man when he was alive. It would have been a pleasure. Presently, she entered the refreshments room, having taken a short stroll in the gardens. The greenery and the smells of fresh food were nostalgic to her. She had given up daily comforts ever since she took up the mantle of a paladin of the White Hand in Yh’mi. The barren, decayed land did not lend well to the growing of crops or green plants. A slight pang of guilt assaulted her as she thought of her brothers and sisters back in Inns’th, who were either fighting for the fort at the Furthest Point, or organizing logistics for the newcomers. However, she was glad to be reminded of the lives that people lived outside of her battle zone; a testament that what they were fighting for was worth it. Videntia’s white armour clearly marked her as a representative of the White Hand, though her appearance differed greatly from Chastity’s. Where he was tall and sturdy beyond his age, she was lithe and agile, and where he was stern and serious, she carried a gentle strength. It was only proper that the White Hand came to pay their respects. Titus had founded the A.N.T. Nations, which provided much-needed resources and contributions for their ongoing efforts in Yh’mi. Some of the leaders here had sent forces to aid. She supposed that they would appreciate a firsthand update of the happenings, but it was difficult to recognize the leaders based on her memory of their descriptions alone. She knew Roen as he stood on the podium, and suspected that Gabriela would not be far away, but she had not met any of the rest before. The leaders were free to approach her, but her stay would be brief. She planned to leave soon after she had a chance to offer her condolences to Empress Rozharon. It was a long way back to Inns’th. Inevitably, her eyes fell upon the petite form of Raveena, even though the paladin did not recognize her. The Gift.The Empath’s power resonated with her own, for although they were ultimately different, they were similar in many ways. Videntia’s Farsight compressed space and time, and allowed her a window to events happening far off. Unfortunately, she did not have full control over it - most of the time, the visions happened unsolicited. The gift was also a curse, and she knew instinctively that Raveena felt the same way.
