  1. To be fair the boars quest is in south Kuiperal, while the Zkriz'ka are in the Moss Forest perhaps combining both quests to lure the Zkriz'kas toward the boards or vice versa could be an option? 1 page + 3 posts minimum should be ez pz lemon squeezy, if quest combinations are a thing Rabbit allows with his quests. 👌
  2. neat prompts! My favorites are the four-star ones. The false hydra, in particular, makes me go 👀 Since I use the Simple theme some of the posts have black text on black background (two-star and four-star and onward) which makes it hard to read. Aside from that though, they're great. Linked to the main quest and opportunities index!

  4. @DarkHorse @Meraxa While waiting for aleksei to come back shall we just go on and have a Shenanigans of Three Noblewomen segment? Medieval Mean Girls? Maybe give Janus a crash course on UM nobility drama? Talk about boys? Not gonna lie I just want fun back-and-forth character interaction. To quote our dearly departed AFV aleksei,
  5. Janus blinked as one of her lemon cakes vanished. An unfortunate turn of events, but a fair price to pay, she decided, for making a new acquaintance. The best affairs are private in nature. She raised an eyebrow, the beginnings of a roguish grin crossing her lips. "Oh, indeed. I'm sure you've quite some stories to tell." Was her new acquaintance, perhaps, privy to the private goings-on of the noble court? She certainly didn't seem like it, at first glance - wearing such drab clothing, engaging in arm-wrestling. But perhaps this was a creature of similar mind as hers. Perhaps she, too, had come to skulk beneath public notice, to enjoy herself without the weight of attention she normally bore. At the request, Janus gladly offered her glass. The answer lacked the detail she desired, but was interesting nonetheless. A foreign princess. Janus' eyes danced. "Well, that makes two of us. Though I'm no royalty, myself." This discussion was edging too close to politics for her liking. Janus returned her attention to her companion. "But, are you-" Janus caught a blur of motion in the corner of her eye. A sudden wave of grief made her shiver. Am I- what is this? CRASH. The woman blinked rapidly, vision suddenly obscured by a blurry curtain of tears. Control yourself. Janus produced a lace handkerchief from somewhere within her dress. She set about to dabbing the liquid from her eyes with an uncharacteristic frown. Tears. Nasty things. When the irritant was gone, she found the bar swept clear of its contents - what disrespect! - and her companion moving towards the cause of the disturbance - a young lass with a jar. Janus hurried after her. Two things made themselves immediately clear. The girl with the jar was named Carthage. The creature in the jar was a mourning fairy - that, to Janus' relief, explained the tears. The ever-present smile grew brittle for a moment, her blue eyes dulled in the haze of a memory. A third thing made itself clear - the name of her new, dare she say, friend. Amira Spidervalley. A disparaged daughter, along with this Carthage lass. "As long as we're making introductions, I'm Janus Dove," she said brightly. "Pleased to meet you, Miss Spidervalley" a short nod to the brunette, "Miss Carthage." another nod to the tear-streaked girl. Janus cast a watchful eye around the scene, then grinned. "Perhaps we should bring this conversation somewhere less... destroyed? Such a feat of athleticism it must've been to catch that little thing." She offered a hand (the one which held no plateful of lemon cakes) for Carthage to pull herself up. @Meraxa @DarkHorse
  6. Some minor updates to the Land of Taen main article, including the addition of @Rabbit's Hydra's Haven as a settlement. (We could have it moved into the Taen board and pinned if you'd like!) I've also finally filled in the canon section for Taen, and will probably be including only the threads canonized for the current year.
  7. Pallas followed at a comfortable distance behind M'yr, a winged shadow whose presence slipped beneath the surface of the crowd's perception. Whether it was festival's illusions, or his own doing was unclear. Nobody else paid heed to the starlings circling above. Pallas kept a watchful eye on the acolyte as they walked. He didn't know what visions M'yr was having, but they seemed to be worsening the closer they drew to the bell. A frown crossed the prince's face as he remembered the glimpse he'd caught of that odd sun. M'yr had a connection to the Serpent, the Sea, all of this. The man was a bridge of some sort, a keyhole through which Pallas could peer through to see. He didn't dare look into the man's mind once more. Might find something else looking back. The crowds thickened as they walked further into the center of Arcturon. Icarius square. It was an empty space between buildings, enclosed in lucentglass as all other parts of the city. Now, men and women in masks filled the area. Pallas folded his wings into his back, rolling a shoulder. The air around him began to hum imperceptibly. Slowly, without seeming to notice, the festival-goers began to move away, giving him a wider berth. Ahead, another man collided into M'yr. Pallas quickened his steps as the acolyte stumbled, half-extending a hand out for support. No matter- M'yr had already moved forward. At long last, the bell came into view. Three starlings circled it like vultures. He examined the object with four sets of eyes. Beautiful. It was an old thing, that much he could tell. Or perhaps, a thing that had yet to be, aged by the eons it had waited. A grating noise tore his attention away. M'yr had dropped the clapper and was gasping out his words. Pallas' eyebrows drew together. Such a fragile creature he was, really. He took hold of the acolyte's arm, and in the motion, sent a pulse of wildlight into the man's veins - a wave of energy that would reinvigorate, if the magic held. Pallas gave M'yr a nudge towards the stage. "Almost there." Curiosity won over concern as he returned his gaze to the bell. Pallas climbed onto the stage, stretching an arm out to brush his fingers against the metal. An odd sound reached his ears. Hastily, he withdrew his hand, then turned around to wait for M'yr to join him.
  8. Yeah, retconned Port Moon to have been constructed in the Eastern Stronghold and to have never been connected to Ursa Madeum in the first place. It's in the updated Port Sun article and a result of making UM more of a contained setting. If its inclusion is just flavor text and independent of vel-connected canon tho go for it 👌
  9. Linking Reno!Reverie's origins to Teresa/Titus makes more sense. I'd rather not have Port Sun involved in this since it just got revamped relatively recently and I'm leaving the canon intentionally vague to build on at a later date. That said, it's neat to see Reverie back in some way since I had no plans to have an empire holiday party/festival event.
  10. If I'm understanding this correctly, this Reverie isn't a direct "sequel" of the old Reverie which was a Vel empire event, but rather a new event some folks in Renovatio picked up via cultural osmosis from the Vel empire city there (Port Sun)? Also there's going to be an event analogous to Christmas in your Nede Demon Land™ that'd be hilarious.

    pallas @PallasParalios • 2 minutes ago The time for reverie draws near As the weather grows cold, we find the days darker as the winter solstice grows near. It's a beautiful time to huddle around our hearths with friends and family. REPLY GRUMBLE LIKE SHARE pallas @PallasParalios • 2 minutes ago Replying to @PallasParalios I hear it's become tradition to tell stories of how we've journeyed, the travels to get where we are, this land of wild wonders many have come to call home. It warms my heart that we, young nation as we are, have already formed traditions. REPLY GRUMBLE LIKE SHARE pallas @PallasParalios • 2 minutes ago Replying to @PallasParalios Despite what forces may seek to tear down the sanctuary we've built in this corner of the fractured continent, I urge you to be steadfast. Let us not succumb to suspicion and paranoia. Hold tight to the bonds we've forged - neighbors, countrymen, all who dwell beneath the shadow of the empire's wings. Let this be a time of solidarity, to stand together against whatever may threaten our peace. REPLY GRUMBLE LIKE SHARE pallas @PallasParalios • 2 minutes ago Replying to @PallasParalios Let this also be a time for action. I hear your concerns about the Argentspire. Zatrikion will be initiating a second expedition to further study the rift and search for a way to seal it, severing its bridge to Yh'mi. I will be working closely with our allies in the White Hand to close the rift on their end. Yh'mi is a land like ours, yet its darkness is one that cannot be tamed - one we cannot afford to let spread. The people of Yh'mi, too, have been abandoned by the Terran Empire, left defenseless against a hateful force of nature. It's about time we banded together. κατανόηση, πρόοδο, ιερό REPLY GRUMBLE LIKE SHARE
  13. Visions seemed to buffet the stranger, slamming across him like waves against a vessel in a storm. Pallas watched the masked man's eyes dart to and fro, focusing on things which were not there - or perhaps were there, just not on the same plane as was most of what one would call reality. Or perhaps he had some way of seeing his starlings? Outside, a small flock of black birds beat their wings against the walls of the city. Pallas' vision fractured, forming a composite of the views through a dozen golden eyes. Whatever was happening, it didn't seem to be affecting the birds. They saw nothing but the old glass buildings which housed smaller buildings. Lights within boxes within boxes. He broke the contact, returning to the present. The stranger wasn't looking too well. Curiosity got the better of him. Pallas held himself carefully on the saner side of perception, but dared to peek through the thoughtstream, through the stranger's eyes. This man had been in Taen for months; wildlight had suffused his body like any other person, and its influence threaded through his skeleton. Pallas placed an intangible finger on the wildlight cords binding the acolyte and tugged on the wisps of excess stimuli. He glimpsed a sun, and the sea, and the harsh cry of seagulls. He withdrew back into his head. "The birds are mine," he added helpfully, attempting to reassure the trembling man as he put his mask back on. The stranger gave his name. "M'yr." Oh. There was a moment of silence as Pallas realized who he was talking to. At M'yr's next words, her decided to comment nothing further, simply replying, "I'm Pallas." Nobody special either... not when facing whatever it is we're facing, that is. As he stepped outside, a starling alighted on his shoulder. Pallas stroked the bird's head with a finger as its siblings remained aloft, circling above him. He held his staff loosely, swinging it casually. He strolled out into the street, eyeing the other acolytes and the ongoing festivities. So, a bell. He took a few steps down the street. A bird swooped ahead of him, through the corridors of the glass-walled city. Another flitted in the opposite direction. Pallas turned back to Myr. "Where's this bell you have to ring?"

Martial law imminent. Riots anticipated. Citizens warned to lock their doors and stay off of the streets. REPLY GRUMBLE LIKE SHARE Caecilia Glasmann @therealCaeciliaGlasmann • 32 Minutes Words cannot do justice to how I abhor Doughy Jim and his cronies. They have not acted in the best interests of their people. Quite the opposite. The withdrawal of all federal employees from Dougton kneecaps Dougton's defensive capabilities and exposes the populace to myriad terrors that are all too common in this day and age. Recently, Tia was razed and Last Chance and Casper were attacked by formidable foes. In the latter cases, these foes were repelled by Terrenus Military forces working hand-in-hand with local law-enforcement under the command of elite Terrenus Military commandos: Peacekeepers. Furthermore, the federal employees Doughy Jim is intent on evicting will be stripped of any property they cannot carry out of the city with them without fair compensation for their losses. It is unknown, at this time, if Terrenus Military veterans and retired federal employees are also subject to Doughy Jim's tyrannical whims, but it is certain that they will be viewed with suspicion in days to come.

    I just want to briefly fangirl over this like omg I have so much love for work that feature people who aren't the usual RP adventurer/warrior/noble/powerful protagonists. This article features something of an IC reference to the Fracture name change, weaves together everything that's been happening in Terrenus (territories seceding, symposium against doom, victory) and also includes very relevant modern-ish plot elements like government conspiracies, fake news/misinformation, framing a "good" event/policy as something malicious. Terran cities vs terran cities? Regionalism? I stan so hard. Going to stalk everything this news article references now brb
