  1. I’ve been toying with the idea of cybernetic talismans (think a ghost from Destiny). These little constructs of magic and science that would bind with an individual and allow them particular feats. I was initially thinking ability wise it would be on par with the DC power rings ie. green represents will power, in addition to being able to conjure whatever you imagine via energy you’d have a type of Jedi-mind trick ability. These are definitely not the droids your looking for. yellow - fear - energy conjuration, instill fear (some scarecrow level shit) red - rage- energy conjuration, manipulate someone’s rage, you could easily turn a party into a bloodbath with a few words and never lift a finger.
  2. Correct and/or suggest an artifact that you feel isn’t represented elsewhere in Valucre.
  3. The old artifact thread can be found Here. Given that this is woefully out of date and the revamp of the artifact system, I’m looking to slim down my current artifact list to 13 items. Of the current list the following have made the cut, i’d Love input from you folks on 1) if any others should be included or (and preferably) 2) What sort of artifacts would you be interested in hunting in a Alterion. This is not only an opportunity for you to create some unique and cool weaponry but to directly alter the lore of Alterion as all artifacts will Have a substantial lore connection. decay blades fenrisulfr the highwind jormungandr the minotaur radiant mantle riva's greatsword
  4. Treason is not something that is birthed overnight. Like anything worth doing well, it demands time, patience and (above all else) discretion. The Blood of the Light began as little more than a cult of personality, centered around the High Mason, Ocelot Royce, and devoted to seeing his agenda established throughout all of Alterion. It was a subtle shift in power, with the elder Masons more entrenched in religious dogma relocated to outer territories. The militant figures within the Masonry already stood steadfast with Ocelot, many having served alongside him during the ork wars. Winning them to a cause that shone a deific light upon proved a simple task and with the faith militant at their back the Blood of the Light soon found themselves the Majority within the halls of the Cathedral. It was worth noting that the Masons had not been worth serving for several decades before Ocelot came along. Their devotion to religious dogma gave way to the greed and corruption typical of those so accustomed to power that they couldn't fathom losing it. His rise to power merely brought the corruption to light. It occurred without warning, absent the pomp and circumstance accustomed to most happenings within the Cathedral. At no particular hour of no particular day, the Crystal spoke and all of Riva’s children felt it in their bones. Word spread from within the house the Masons built as far as the remote Izrali hovels that a terrible creature of staggeringly impossible dimensions eclipsed the sun and darkened the sky for a full minute before disappearing into the Skar. In that brief span of time, nations rose and fell; those territories considering rebellion against the Masons either committed to the Church or made ready for a fight of biblical proportions. With the ‘end of days’ having come and gone, the Masons found their stranglehold over the Alterion populace, a far more precarious grip than anticipated. Viktus Gallin, heir apparent to Ocelot Royce and formerly a figure in open rebellion against the Masons was welcomed by the Blood of the Light as their messiah—for he, amongst all others, had been hand picked by Ocelot as his successor. The schism within the church was only further complicated by Viktus’ reappearance within the Cathedral —many of the clergy having called for his execution only a short time ago. At the very least Viktus’ rise to power was no less controversial than that of his foster father’s own. Now in a position to seize the throne,Viktus and his allies seek to oust the church of any traitors have begun to ‘purge the heretics’ from their ranks. The blood of traitors must feed the earth.

  6. Ocelot has a clone of himself (Chapter N. Verse) and an adopted son Viktus who is actually the illegitimate child of Richter Grievous!

    Alterion is very artistic with most of their works being tied to Masonism. Stylistically it’s very baroque, with the more ‘modern’ renditions (and Ocelot’s favorite) being more align with Rococo. So if it’s a museum I’d assume it would more than likely be some dark religious piece akin to ‘Saturn devours his children’ there’s no doubt statues and we can say some of them were carved by Riva the Masonress. As for a well known Painter...why not Alejandro Bluesky the VI with his key masterpiece ‘Riva’s Folly’

      In a way, kind of! I work as an insurance consultant and over the holiday breaks I got pulled in by my firm to catch up on a ton of work for this government project we’re part of. 


      Sorry for ghosting ya ?

  10. Yes, it applies to organizations/groups as well as individuals.
  11. Still interested! I missed that I owed @Aleksei a post. Curse my blasted eyes!
  12. @Grubbistch @Garion @Zashiii I’ll tag everyone in the first IC thread once I post it and will try to remember to link it here, as well.
  13. Class B: A local merchant seeks a group of adventurers to recover a relic from cultists hiding out somewhere in the city. From the Terrenus Quest Index. My thoughts are that we go with a blend of 1 and 2, the statue on its own is not enough to remove the curse from the amulet, but if the merchants recovered relic is used to sanctify the relic beneath the statue, enough joo joo is mustered to rid Howl of his feathers (to some extent). We could even gain information on the Genesaris Cult from these cultists? Maybe they’re an off shoot of the main cult?
