    *Sigh*
    Well that short hiatus became a rather long hiatus...
    Aside from that, in the throes of finals, I have returned this winter to write once more... so...

    Hi y'all! I'm back!
    Can't wait to meet up with everyone again and do some hardcore, collaborative writing 😎.
    Let's get on to the spicy adventures, shall we?

    Hello everyone, vielle here (again)! 🙏
    So: I'm a prodigal daughter on her way back home. I just wanted to apologize to everyone for ghosting all those months ago—it's as @Csl has said: I've taken a leave of absence because I had to focus on stuff irl and also my mental health. Things haven't been the best in that latter aspect, but methinks I'm doing better nowadays. It's kinda tough, having to learn some things the hard way, but that's life for you! Now, I've kinda gotten better at handling my stressors now. 😂
    Which leads me to that elephant in the room: I'm dropping out of past threads, cutting down on new threads, and focusing more on personal plots this time around. Taking up all those past threads and keeping up with them was in fact doable, truly, but I unfortunately overestimated my capacity to stay interested in all the things. It's not that those plots weren't interesting; don't get me wrong! It's just that there's only so much my writing muse can do for me, and though some once thought it of me, I'm not a machine. 😅 So, as I make my slow return, I'll be more particular about the future plots and threads I'll be engaging in, so I can give them my utmost writing efforts to the best of my ability. It's the least I can do for my writing partners; you all deserve the best I can give. ❤️
    By the way, I have not checked Discord yet and probably will continue not checking Discord for the foreseeable future. I'm sorry if anyone sent me any messages over there; I haven't opened it at all over these past few months! 😂 But please know, whatever you may have sent me, I appreciate that you have thought to interact with me at all, even when I was, y'know, away. 🙈
    Overly sentimental stuff aside: I'm (omw) back! I've missed you all dearly. If you would have me back in your good graces, I'd be happy to write with you all again. Gonna do some spring cleaning on my thread tracker (it's a little dusty in there!) and take over handling that character/lore garage sale @Csl was doing for me (thank you so much, bestie!), and then maybe I'll have a cup of tea and look around what's changed here in my absence some more.
    It's kinda great to be back here. ❤️

    So, as some of you might already be aware, I have made the decision to phase myself out of RPing in Canon Valucre. A few different conditions, including an increased feeling that posts are more like grindy chores than fun, and the threat that my job is going to get way more busy and make it difficult to find time to post, have contributed to this decision. What does it mean? It means I will be completing my current ongoing threads, but not starting anything new. I will be working on setting suitable endings for my existing characters and plots in the next couple of months, and I am shooting to be done with everything in the canon world by about January 1st.
    I will not be quitting any threads. All my existing obligations I will see through until the end. Also, for those in Chasing Legends, I will stick with that thread however long it goes, including if we do sequels (unlike the canon threads, I feel more at ease in Chasing Legends and find it more fun, and if it is just that one thread, I should be able to keep up well-enough), so you needn't worry about me leaving there. Also, I will still be approachable for graphic design commissions, if anyone is interested in that.
    Interest checks to determine the fates of House Karradeen and the Plateau of Zuhl/Sidereal Lake will be made in probably a week or so from now.
    This is not a farewell, merely a transition to a less active state-of-being. So let's avoid getting sappy over it; I loath sadness, so let's just not give it any time of day, eh?

    Codenamed in development with the names of three of the Major Arcana of esoteric tarot, the second weapon being developed was:
    The Hierophant: A polearm-style weapon, built for use by OFM Custodes of the Greatsword aspect. With one end terminating in a deadly axe head, and the other with a counter-weight shaped for use against armor, the Hierophant is a deadly, heavy weapon intended for use only by the strongest of individuals of enhanced strength, or wearing strength-enhancing wargear such as power armor. The Hierophant incorporates a built-in energy system that allows it to fire blasts of power through a port typically placed forward near the weapon head. This energy system typically takes the form of a generator that is configured either to fire blasts of electricity, or blasts of fire, and can be charged for a more powerful projectile. An alternate mode for each enhances the bladed edge with either an electrical charge, or superheated blade. The Hierophant may also take the form of a large two-handed sword or lance, and extremely rarely, as a war hammer.
    Through the trials of events such as the Harrowing and battles against Fuererkonig's elite guard, the Kreigmeisters, revealed the need for more potent weaponry, with regular melee arms all but impotent and the vibroblade arsenal faring as ordinary against the enchanted steelskin of their enemies, it is hoped that the Hierophant line will allow a Custode to tackle and harm the toughest enemies.

    In the depths of the Dawn Komturie, James Eredas and several engineers, Custodes Militants, and scientists oversaw the development and testing of various weapons systems both existing and new.
    The variety of enemies the Order Of Force Majeure were called upon to answer to and the variety of their forces called for many specialized developments. The magical and supernatural had many advantages over the mundane and conventional, and whilst Knights were usually the ones to deal with the most fantastic threats, Custodes of all types had to be able to hold their own, or at least survive in the face of them.
    Now, the Order of Force Majeure were developing three other new lines of weapon systems concurrently.
    Codenamed in development with the names of three of the Major Arcana of esoteric tarot, the first weapon was:
    The Hermit: A powerful pistol that fires 12-gauge shotgun shells. Built as the pinnacle of personal defense weaponry, the standard Hermit comes as a double-barreled pistol that is loadable with up to four shotgun shells, two in each rifled barrel. Somewhat larger and bulky then many other pistols due to its construction, and the need for recoil compensators, nevertheless the pistol is ideally to be fired with both hands, and only by individuals of enhanced strength, or wearing strength-enhancing wargear such as power armor due to the severe recoil. The design is to be used against and be capable of stopping the likes of even a dire bear in its tracks, and its primary disadvantages are its low number of available shots, and short effective range, which can be somewhat extended with sabot slug ammunition.

    Lore Snippet: On the subject of killing daemons
    Daemons.
    The assorted students in the class before him were from multiple branches of the Force Majeure, both Auxiliary and Militant, Vanquishers and Guardians, captains and freshly graduated troopers alike. James set down a tome on the subject on the table before him. He had gone over with them the whos and whats of the subject. Now it was time to get to the most relevant aspect of them. 
    How to kill them.
    James placed two more items on the table. The first of which was a revolver-style pistol, built by a company in contract to the Order of Force Majeure. The weapon was large and weighty, a favored backup weapon for many Custodes and packed by a few Knights as well for its reliability and stopping power even against larger creatures. The second was a gladius, often used as a sidearm by Guardians and Greatswords for close-in work. The weapon had a stark, naked honesty to it, deadly in its simplicity, well-shaped for both slashing and thrusting.
    "Now, it is well documented that more advanced weapons such as firearms are less effective against daemons then blade and flame. Can anyone explain why it is?" James asked his audience, pointing to each respective weapon.
    Silence. An uncomfortable silence. To think that higher tech actually became less useful when confronting the terrors of the void made such technological advancement seem pointless.
    "Because they are not of this world, sir?" ventured one Custode.
    James nodded, "Partial credit for a partial answer. That is but one aspect of it. The truth is not fully understood, and may be stranger than any of us know, but the current working belief is that of the primordial origin of daemons lends their vulnerability to the things that first spawned them" He would proceed to expand upon the subject at length.
    "After all, what is a daemon other than a shadow made manifest? They are stories made flesh... our stories, the stories of our ancestors and descendants. It is up to you to interpret that story, and make what you will of it. You must be able to think beyond the story, and recognize that to be corrupted is to be bound by a parasite, devoid of any true sentience, and become nothing more than a hollow puppet."
    He held up the gladius, displaying it for all to see. "Thus, daemons are injured not on the physical plane, but on an ideological one. This here is a symbol, a constant throughout cultures past, present and future, familiar, or alien. The warp is a place where our reality echoes... where notable events, themes and deeds churn the primordial psyche of mortal species. The most primeval of actions, of objects, they have the most power as they are closer and more charged with the raw emotions to which the daemon is but a mirror of."
    He laid the gladius down, and gestured the pistol next. "Of course, the power of firearms cannot be denied. Perhaps in time they will be more effective as our most base instincts reflect such. But the origin still remains, and will always remain. Now... who can tell me how does this correlate to the concept of True Names?"
    One of the Vanquishers answered this time, loud and clearly. "Daemons have True Names, exactly because they are not of this realm, my lord. As the reflections of consciousness, they have no form, and therefore, no identity in the sense that we know."
    The Master Knight smiled and nodded in response. At least one of the assembly was doing their scholarly work.
