    The factions are coming OOC

    Let someone else at it, sir. Long and short, RL first, Val comes second, and RL is currently attempting to stage a coup, so... Meh. >~<

    Interesting and cool articles

    I think this video fits the theme for this thread... https://www.linkedin.com/learning/alex-mcdowell-world-building-and-narrative/world-building-and-narrative

    The factions are coming OOC

    Soooo... I'm going to need to take a bit longer to reply, (Again!-Again!-Again!-Again!) 'cause fuck me, RL is a miserable needy unforgiving shite. Had a cable short and catch on fire, melting the side seat in the work van. Don't know how long that puts me out of flooring work, but that's half my rent in the dumpster fire I call "my life." I'll uhh... I'll come back tomorrow when I'm not a mental health meltdown waiting to happen and update y'all as I'm able. @supernal CHAOS!

    Doing floor work this mornin'/afternoon so probably won't be getting anything done today, but I'm waiting for your feedback anyway, ya goof :P Depending on what that feedback looks like, I might be requesting another body to help fill the pages, but I'll let you know for sure.

    The Revival of Tazarek

    I do believe Drakon was indeed what they were called. I've seen the name mentioned but haven't had the time to read up on what was written in regards to them, but if you're cool with doing a bit of footwork and linking me to threads that deal with them, I'd be happy to trudge on through and do my best to make sense of the underlying stories and themes in play with them. As far as what that means for Canon influence and the stories involving the Drakon, I'm 100% sure that I'm 100% uncertain what that's going to look like. ~laughs~ Part of this whole thread is weaving together all the pieces already in play to create a semi-cohesive setting of Tazarek as it would be six months after most of its major changes. I'm certainly going to be waiting for as much feedback as possible before proposing any major ideas going forward.

    The Revival of Tazarek

    @Tyler @Pink Fluffy Cutiefly @Pasion Pasiva @Trexasle @ODSTDRAGON @Soldat Tenaille @jaistlyn @LightningBolt @Twitterpated @Godspell @Secretary @Moonbay @LorSanTekka @Prestississimo It's fair to say that I have potentially, maybe, quite possibly missed some names here, but I believe this is the bulk of those actively involved in some major development in Tazarek and it's operations. If I DID miss someone, I do apologize. Feel free to berate and shame me endlessly for my unforgivable behaviour. Otherwise, do pop on in and pipe up if you feel like you have some valid discussion to be had here. Just remember that this is as much a way to correct or update any invalid or missing lore from the Stronghold as it is to brainstorm and propose a common view of how Tazarek should currently be. Keep in mind that I've been gone for just about six months, and Valucre time runs about concurrent to that period. A lot can happen in approximately two seasons! >~<

    The Revival of Tazarek

    Alright, so it's no secret to Valucre that Tazarek was at one time a bit of a thing. When Warlock was about, the last bastion of Valucre centric Dwarves was a thriving idea with a hell of a lot of passion behind it, and I don't think anyone can really deny the effort that went into it. When the dreaded Real Life raided Valucre of Warlock, I offered to take up the board and to organize and edit many of those ideas, culminating in the most recent and up to date canon version of it. When my own RL issues came to light and I had to step away, what remaining passion for the location faded as well, and eventually, as one would expect, Tazarek's sub-board was removed, though as was made clear, the location would still exist for those wishing to take part in its development. In my absence, it looks like a few attempts from several parties was had to drive some more RP in Tazarek's borders, and so I'm to believe that people still have interest in developing its stories and setting further. With that in mind, I'm opening up the floor to mutual discussion for those interested in reviving and solidifying Tazarek's presence in the context of "current" Valucre canon. Now, before I begin tagging a batch of names I've found in my search for bringing the Stronghold back from the dead, I want to make it clear what this thread is and isn't for. All posts in this thread are to help shape and bring to date Tazarek as a location in the greater context of Valucre lore. I'm not interested in any sort of drama with each party involved in its creation and maintenance, and posts that head that direction will be swiftly reported. We're not here to badmouth or villanize people in their actions OOC, got it? That said, I can understand and sympathize with communications that were behind the scenes that may have painted a different picture of what would happen IC. The expectations of those communications are important to me, however, and while I can't promise that I'll uphold any promises made or pursue any ideas had, I do promise that I will communicate with those interested in continuing to pursue their stories in Tazarek from here on out. I'm a huge fan of thickly weaved collaborative storytelling and I think that every character's own personal stories should be as important as the greater whole. Give me a chance to work with you at the very least, yeah? Dramatic monologues aside, here's the list of folks I've found who had some mention of story and interaction within Tazarek around the time I left on up to my return: Gonna have to be in another post, sadly. The tagging system and I never really got along. >~<

    Still thinking about the post for the Sturngraen... Between switching from the typical 9-5 of the dish job off to the contractually obilgated malarkey from my own personal business, I've also been trying to enjoy the birthday this last week (The 12th) and St. Paddy's day (Compared to most "Irish-Americans" I've actually been raised by a directly Irish household, so support of the holiday is dedicated to JUST Irish imports {A double shot of Jameson and a Guiness, for reference of those that know I'm "far more rambling than normal and know they're not all there"}] it's been a... Hectic time. So far, I'm off this Sunday so I'm planning to have something up that day (12ish PM MST to ... 3-4 AM MST).

    The factions are coming OOC

    As is the very epitome of my very Valucre experience, IRL has taken the brunt of my time this last week. Switching to full-time Freelance work has meant 90% of my day is advertising and writing up proposals for potential clients while always keeping small throw-away jobs on the backburner. Today and tomorrow I've got work completely unrelated to the Freelance stuff just to keep funds rolling in and myself out of the streets (At least for now!) All that said, I'm hoping to have some time after the job tomorrow to settle down and do something fun, like you know, roleplaying on my favourite forums and the like. @supernal If you find yourself with some free time, I'd love to pick your brain about Ponkapaog's lore article and the interaction of the Sturngraen with what I've read already! Toodles, lovelies!
  11. Fun Fact: An hour of dialogue between two different parties in English is just about 14 pages.

  12. Thought here for you. Rather than recent status updates, why not highlight the new faces coming into Valucre? The introductions sub-forums? You could nestle it in below Roleplay Checks and above Recent Roleplay? Helps us as old hands figure out new faces?

  13. Ooooh... Not at all a fan of this change. @supernal Not that one opinion means much! :P It reminds me far too much of built in chat rooms and how those always go terribly with the Val crowd...


    BUT! While it's here, I might as well moan listlessly about audio transcription and how I've got 59 minutes to parse through and I'm only 11 minutes in. It's terribly boring work >~<

      The Roleplay checks, on the other hand, are nifty and I think I could easily back those sticking around on the side. 

  14. @supernal Here's the start of the thread for the Sturngraen. As far as a ... Thing. A thing that's like a summary but meant to catch attention (I seemingly am out of words. Grand!) You could kindly put: A Stone-like species rises from the depths of Ponkapoag Lake near it's Southern Shore. Previously unknown to the Terran people, the Sturngraen claim fealty to nothing less than the power of the very stars, a core of which they say exists in each and every Sturngraen soul.
  15. It’s a tale amongst my people that we once held mighty kingdoms amongst the stars, well before the age of Terran men. Memories common in every mind, a shared experience, we had it in our very souls that we were beings grander than any ruler yet to walk the ground above us... And yet, we could offer no proof to our non-terrestrial claims. So, silent we sank, deep beneath the tides, pondering when again we’d rise, our cries of passion, pagan and proud echoing in the very earth those above us worked and worshipped. Pebbles on the Ponkapoag shoreline trembled as heavy, angular beings rose from the Lake in-masse, a shambling horde of people not yet known rising from the depths of homes deep beneath ruins once thought to be empty, a time and place forgotten hiding the secrets of the Sturngraen, a species coming from amongst the stars. Waves stirred, broken by living history, giving birth to hundreds as the Sturngraen slowly and methodically organized into rank and file, the pounding of massive feet rending the sand and soil beneath them into finer grains and dust. Soon, the lake bore no more, and every body seemingly meant to be, lined into place, a sudden silence replacing the rumble of their movements, eyes locked into place and drawn to a solitary figure before them. A voice, sharp and gravelled, like stone scraping across glass, cracked across the silence, filling the void around each and every one. “Today, we rise to be known. To take what is ours. To once again rule over kingdoms outrivalled only by the grand and glorious universe. We are Sturngraen, the core of every star!” A roar of voices grew, shouts proving their passions strong and true, as rank and file system surged towards the trees, Sturngraen working quickly to establish a foothold along Ponkapoag Lake’s Southernmost shores. We didn’t know it then, but we were coming into the world at a time most tremulous. Our presence would soon be known, but it wouldn’t be for the reasons we had come to expect... Sometimes I wonder if I should’ve kept my silence... Maybe if I had, she’d still be with me.
