    Want to join a noble house?

    It's been over a month since the bump in the last thread of this nature I posted and am posting a new one to take advantage of the widget House Dali is my noble house in Ursa Madeum. I have a lot of plans for it, some already done, some in the process, and some still just aspirations. Everyone is pretty engaged so the answer is, get more people! You can learn more about Dali here: https://www.valucre.com/topic/40402-lost-house-of-dali/ Some previous accomplishments, to give you an idea of things you can do which benefit both your character and the overall House Arranged marriages and / or formal trade agreements between other noble houses or external entities Aided a noble house in investigating a suspicious death - the Wyrmalkers of House Dali are experts in intelligence Established Faux-ton fast travel posts between Dali estate, Casper, Biazo, and have now connected Andelusia and Misral via their estate connection and a connection in Qrill (a town in Misral) Established a vineyard in Biazo Established a museum and art gallery in Misral Trendsetted some fashion standards and social networking at high class events And the stuff that I'd like to do and need help with: The vineyard is a business - make it more successful Gain an additional 5 square miles with another expansion thread Forge more alliances inside and outside of Ursa Madeum We have a lot of transmutation characters but could use more for the other guilds: Abjuration, Enchantment, Divination, Illusion Replace Tansy Wyrmwalker - in this case the existing character would transfer to you as a player rather than making a new character I'm specifically looking to grow the Dali house so your character would either be a Dali from blood or marriage, whether recent or long past. You would also pick one of the sub-families/branches to be a part of (Wyrmwalker for intelligence, Goldcourt for fashion, etc)
  2. Setting: The island of Corinth, Andelusia City, Near the Beginning of Spring, two days after the death of Amelia Silverheart. Genre: Mystery, Horror Objective: To investigate the strange killing of Amelia Silverheart and discover the culprit of the crime. Danger Level: (Medium) Something had scared the victim so terribly that their heart gave out from fright. If the perpetrator is still in the area, then whoever is looking into the death may themselves be in danger. Reward: A monetary reward of a modest sum as well as political favor of small proportions for anyone who has any information that leads to solving the peculiar case of the death of Amelia Silverheart. Preferred Story Arc: The preferred Story Arc for this particular thread is for the various writers involved to be part of the investigation regarding the death of Amelia Silverheart. During this time, three people of interest are named that may have more information about the death or even responsibility for it. From a descending order there is Elsera Elludoria, elven diplomat from the Terran Empire of Odin Haze, come to Ursa Madeum to establish an embassy within the city. Then there is the medicine woman name Olga Earthblood, a witch who had recently moved from the wilds into the city to sell special herbs and potions to those looking to enhance their lives through magic. Finally there is the old knight Sir Darrell Bodinger, a veteran of the war for Ursa Madeum, who spends his days drinking at the local taverns. Through deductive reasoning and searching for clues, the writers will figure out which of the three people are in fact responsible for the death of Amelia Silverheart. Once that is done, they will be rewarded and sent on their way, all the while the true killer is revealed, and the mystery is truly solved to the audience instead of the characters themselves. What roles am I looking for?: Characters more suited to interaction than combat, preferrably. This is going to be more of a whodunit instead of a fight, so I'm definitely looking for those who chose charisma as their main Stat. Expectations: Good communication, cooperation and civility amongst the writers who are willing to join. It certainly won't be a very slow thread but I also don't want people bugging each other for posts, either. Aiming for at the very least two pages Created Opportunities: With the killer gone, the people of Andelusia can feel safe again, but there are still questions left unanswered. The greatest and most perplexing of all being, how does the gnarled old tree near the palace fit into the mystery itself?
  3. This is hard. This is so f-ing hard. Am I going to die here? - Location: Yh'mi; Furthest Point, fledging battlement. It has been weeks since we made it to the Furthest Point. We have been holding well, better than I expected. The group that arrived a week after us brought fresh supplies, which alleviated our desperate state. We have managed to retrieve a smattering of building supplies and tools from the two wagons that had been destroyed, but a lot of them are damaged, and all the food and has been stolen by our enemies. The creatures of Yh'mi made scattered attacks, but we have managed to hold them back. There have been casualties, those who had been taken down by surprise in the dark. A low wall has been built, reducing the chance of surprise attacks. But we cannot rest. We are vulnerable until the fort is completed. There will be many more gravestones on the ground before we reach our objective. May Gaia fold those who have fallen and will fall for the cause into her warm embrace. -- Fidelitas, paladin of the Order of the White Hand. - Claiming the Furthest Point Thread 2: Nightmare Descends Background (for context, optional reading) Plot of this thread A group of adventurers, warriors, mercenaries as well as fearless builders have been building the foundations of the fort at Furthest Point. However, the next wave of attacks are coming, and this time, the attacks are not merely physical. Expect to be plunged into a realm of nightmares, hopelessness and despair. You will be fighting nightmare monsters, and trying to escape from your greatest fears. Broad Mechanics (Read this carefully!) There will be dice rolls for fights. Similar to the first Furthest Point thread, I will be using the Roll12 system, but enhanced with changes. (You can see the Roll12 rules of the previous thread here, but some of the rules will be changed.) This thread will be based on nightmare realms. Some players will get the chance to create their own nightmares that the rest of us play in and try to escape from. There will be monsters. Death can happen to your characters, but maybe not in the way you expect. I promise there will be no permadeath (unless you wish it to), but your character runs the risk of having perma damage, like lost body parts or madness etc. When you join the thread, you are agreeing to this! Characters continuing from the first Furthest Point will have a perk, that will be announced later. This represents their experience gained from dealing with the first wave of monsters. Who can join? Any player can join, and I will take any number of players, but take note that your character should not be expressedly evil, or undead (if they are in disguise, or don't act outwardly evil, that's fine). The Order of the White Hand are Gaianists after all, and they will not work alongside characters who are evil or Unnatural. Mercenaries, justice heroes, anyone from the ANT nations are good examples of characters who would fit in nicely. Thread Pacing and Length Each round lasts 2 weeks (sometimes extended to 3, over holidays and stuff). If you don't post by the end of the round, you will be skipped. Our last thread lasted for 4 months, I expect this to go on for a bit longer than that. When will the thread start? End of March or beginning of April. Rewards There is IC gold given from the Order of the White Hand, but there are also opportunities for loot and weapon/armour upgrades if you stick till the end. - This is still considered an initial interest check, I wanted to see how many people will be joining, before I finalize the dice roll mechanics! So if you would like to join, comment! If you are interested in being one of the players constructing the nightmare realms, do let me know that too! I might select people (to run the nightmare realms) if there are many of you interested in doing this. It will be selected based on activity and reliability of posting. I would not like to have to pick up GMing from someone else who disappears halfway. There is no limit to the number of regular players though. Let me know if you have any questions! 🙂 Tagging everyone active from the previous thread. New players are also welcome!

    Naughty.... Or Nice? (OOC)

    Notice from the Carmine Empire: An unidentified being has been flying across Genesaris, violently massacring town after town. The subject has been described as a very large man in a red suit, in what appears to be a bobsled pulled by what appear to be abnormally large deer. His methods of flight are unknown. His methods of killing vary from witness to witness, though all reports have one thing in common; He always seems to say the same cryptic phrase before he begins: "You have been very naughty." All attempts made by the Imperial Guard to capture or kill this monster have failed. Therefore, we send an open invitation to any who will listen. Calling all mercenaries, adventurers, monster hunters, and anyone that can adequately wield a weapon. The Carmine Empire requests your help in putting an end to this monsters murderous rampage. Any who accept, will be greatly rewarded upon the job's completion. To any who may perish while on this hunt, your reward will be sent to your family. We thank you in advance for your cooperation. Okay so real talk, Santa is evil, and brutally killing anyone he doesn't deem as 'Nice'. Which is everyone. Is anyone -truly- nice? All the time? This will be a raid boss fight taking place in the city of Umbra, in which there are several enemy phases to get through before we take on the final boss, Santa himself. As for what they are... Hollow will be keeping that a secret until it is time to fight them. Upon finishing the event, all who enter will receive rewards from Santa, as well as the Carmine Empire. If you are unconscious when the fight finishes, you will receive less rewards from Santa, but the Carmine reward will be unaffected. There will not be a combat dice system for this event, it will be pure storytelling. However, know that like Santa, Hollow will be both participating, and watching. No god dodging, no unavoidable attacks, and no staying conscious after taking hits that would have you out cold. That being said, dice rolls will be used to dictate a few things. Secret things. Worry not, Hollow is not biased. My character will be having just as hard a time as you, and he will not receive more or better rewards. If your character is knocked out, they are out for the rest of the event unless someone revives them. The amount of people required for this event is flexible, but the absolute max is 9. You may only have one character involved at a time. If you wish an organization be involved, you must pick one representative. Hollow wishes for this to be canonized as well. Please mind the character requirement for canonization. Character sheets for those participating will be an immense help in speeding things along. Current roster of murder victims brave individuals to undertake this task: 1- HollowCipher: Dan Palmer 2- Thotification: Maiden Ravenbush 3- Mr. Optional: Caelus. With Robot Eagle 4- Lawman: Alice Schrodinger 5- Hurttoto: One of Their Newest Characters
  5. "United we stand, divided we will fall." Interest check: Roll12 rules Post summary to track things To keep easy track of things, write a summary at the bottom of your post. An example would be: (*Note: Monster players, do this for each of your monsters too! Name them as well, e.g. xxx A, xxx B, so it would not be confusing.) Posting order You can post multiple times, but you can only roll dice once per round. Extra posts can be used for narrative purposes. But don't put up spitfire posts! The round ends when everyone has posted, or when reasonable time has passed. You can post before the first monster post too, but that would be a narrative post, and you will still need to post again later for your attack. IC thread: Summary of everyone's positions and statuses: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1w6oi2m7C7JDcY1iJE6R31ukrGqhX_Tsj8ZvqX46Pcao/edit?usp=sharing

    The Plague: Weland (Open)

    In the city of Weland, on the Continent of Terrenus, an event would happen which would make World News. That said, it is not something big, like a war or immediate mass deaths. It is not something that can be fought by swords and spell, at least not mainly and not effectively. No, it is something so small....yet so deadly. And it is starting now. A Virus....a Plague...has occured... The setting starts at night. The hospitals had recently getting some excess activity, and requested some help from various doctors groups hoping they would send doctors to assist their overload. After all, they understand the dangers of having an overworked hospital staff. After some work, or maybe resting from their travels after just arriving in the city, a group of individuals arrives at the Saezaeshita Hot Spring and Onsen, a popular and well known establishment with well known healing and rejuvenating powers. Perhaps they desired to take a dip to cool off after work, or to prepare themselves for extended work hours, or just wanted to rest up comfortably, but this social envirornment is considered safe and healthy. And while they are bathing and resting in a safe place, unaware at first more and more people are falling to some new sort of disease. And soon enough, in the middle of the night while everyone is asleep, a messanger arrives delivering an urgent report to one of the doctors staying there: An Illness has been confirmed, and its spreading through the city. Stage 1 of the DIsease: Fevers, running noses, coughing, some paling of the skin, and dizziness are the main symptoms. Stage 2: After a few hours to an entire day, they will begin expereincing hallucinations, have headaches, and in some cases their body produces a strange parasite inside their own bodies. Stage 3: A few more hours to another day later, and they will begin to enter psychosis while any magical or supernatural powers they have may begin to run amok. Many give into darkness and strangeness and will assault, normally and otherwise, any other non-infected being they find. IF a parasite developed, they will actively try to beat down and infect the healthy. The parasite has to be removed through emergency surgery mainly, with alternative methods maybe being possible. Stage 4: Once they reach this stage, they begun to convulse and have major Organ Failures. If a parasite exists, it takes over and fuses with the body, absorbing as much of the memories and information the host originally had as it can. However, they quickly lose their ability to be infectious after this stage. Please note that as they do not rise from the dead, this is NOT a zombie plague. The virus can spread through fluids or skin to skin contact. It can also be spread through coughs and sneezes. It is possible to take measures against being infected, but one has to work quickly and ensure that the methods remain fresh and operational. Additionally, the virus is immune against being cured magically, but is less resistant against anything that helps prevent the spread of viruses in the first place, like a purification field. Here are the Phases I have in mind for the RP: Phase 1: Social gathering and get together where the characters can meet and talk to each other before the action starts. Phase 2: After being woken up and alerted to the situation, the characters all try to work together to help identify, analyze, and deal with the infection, teaming up with the authorities and hospitals. Altercations with panicked people and rioters as a Quarantine begins to be established. Some more rowdy or heavily infected people begin to get violent. Phase 3: As the situation gets more stressful and tragic, and some of the Quarentines fail, the virus causes more people to go out of control and those with the Parasite mutation actively try to undermine the protagonists and their allies while also trying to spread the infection. Phase 4+: Most likely, it will end with the situation contained in Weland and the virus being stopped. However, in consideration of player choices and possible outcomes, there are different endings, such as the Virus spreading to other cities and so on. There is a need for Doctors and anyone with medical knowledge, as well as Adventurers who can help keep the peace and protect the doctors while they work. Please note that due to the direness of the situation, even if they arrive late any help would still be appreciated and it is open to join.
  7. Freedom in the Innocence of Avarice ouse Dali emerges ever farther from the sands of history, golden family roots finding light and thriving in the cracked dirt. Word of seamless Northtrail leadership and culturally privy Goldcourt tongues spread like wildfire. Attributes, members, and associates of the family’s branches were soon to be found in almost as many places as word of them could be. With growing recognition of the family, as with growing recognition of anything, came a swell of those who held house Dali in ill rapport. While reception of the family was largely well met, the world must always pockets of dissolution. The culturally privy could be mistaken for conniving, the air of leadership snide. What is this? Avarice Goldjest, considered a connoisseur of fashion in his circle of family and friends, had taken liberties with his father’s small fortune and gone travelling the Terran countryside with a couple friends. Well, he had come to village outside Dougton when he found himself accosted for his effeminate attire. Avarice stood up for himself boldly, flavoring his rebuttal with a couple spicy words he thought might add to his masculinity. Unfortunately for Avarice, the person he had exchanged verbal fisticuffs with was the village elder. His friends were not of enough fortitude to defend him when a group of luddite farmers in a recovering village called Tormo had locked him up for the slew of pompous insults; they were, however, man enough to return to House Dali and request help for their friend’s unfortunate blunder. In addition to a warning about the happenings upon Avarice, his friends tell of a large wolf prowling the area that attacks Tormo at night. Belos Titansinger, high priest and lawman of House Dali, answers the call to trial for Avarice’s freedom with two apprentice attorneys or journeymen he finds along the way. Together, the three will venture to Tormo and, do trial with the primitive folk village’s high counsel, and do what it takes to get their loudmouthed cousin back. Just how they will accomplish this feat may entail more danger and surprise than first meets the eye. What do we need? 1-2 people: Join Belos and save Avarice to advance in legal standing in house Dali; see what you can find in the blossoming village of Tormo; attempt to gain favor with the high counsel of Tormo, with Avarice, or Belos. @Diremast @KittyvonCupcake @ethela penna @Witches Brew (All other Dali family members tagged just in case they want to participate)

    Nu Martyr Goes to War

    Shall we go to war once more? Long ago in times of strife and conflict long forgotten, a crown was lost. It wasn't a crown of royalty or a tool to demonstrate a particular bloodline. Rather it was one forged of blood and fire, thousands of lives falling or rising at its will. Though the crown itself could not be destroyed despite hundreds of powerful sorcerers and intellects working laboriously to decimate the relic, they weren't able to inflict so much as a scratch upon it. So they hid it away, deep in the underground where not a single person would ever be able to hear of it, much less find it. Or so it was believed. For centuries the crown was guarded by a secret group in Renovatio that spread throughout Nu Martyr and beyond. The faction, originally sailing to Renovatio from Terrenus, was the Church of Three; a near cult like religion which believes in worship of all three gods: Gaia, Time, and Space. It was always their solemn belief that, unlike in Gaianism or the preachings of Odin Haze, these three were merciless gods. An ideology said to be deeply influenced by the religious conflicts of Tellus Mater. Those who are part of the Church of Three but of Renovation ancestry view the God of Time much the same as they would the All-Creator. One in the same, in fact. Thus when those in charge could no longer bare the risk of having Asteria's crown fall into the wrong hands, they turned it toward the Church of Three. With the Church's extreme secrecy and unwillingness to bend before those they considered Heretics, such a godly relic was considered safe in their silent possession. It was a common belief that the Church of Three was an indomitable group throughout history, a stance recently challenged in modern Terrenus by a necromancer named Lilith Reiter and her cult of power hungry warmongers. The necromancer's desire to obtain lost pieces of armor previously belonging to the Witch King Zengi proved to be the Church's downfall in Terrenus. Upon retrieving the chest plate of Zengi's armor from an underground labyrinth hidden under the city of Tia in Terrenus, Lilith Reiter also took a single living prisoner with her; one who ultimately was unable to resist her power and told of their most valuable treasure. The crown of Asteria However, Lilith was not the only one who has heard of the crown. In fact, news of the Asteria's crown being found has spread throughout Valucre like wildfire. It's corrupt power infamous for the destruction it brings in its wake and the monsters it makes out of those who wear it. Upon hearing the news and its rumored location being within his land, the PRIME of Nu Martyr, Ardon Dallas (character sheet TBD), led a small army to the Church of Three's location. After a few small skirmishes, he came out with the crown. Ardon Dallas, PRIME of Nu Martyr, now has enough power to act on his ambitions. He may have even turned his eyes upon the Grand Kommadant, his ambitions were so grand. But then another word spread. This one striking fear in even Ardon, bearer of Asteria's crown and PRIME of Nu Martyr. "The Commander is one her way to Nu Martyr for the crown. All who stand in her way will perish." Will you stand in her way and risk death for glory, or join her for power and glory? OOC Do you stand with Ardon Dallas to protect Nu Martyr (both the province and the city), or do you join the attacking party for riches, wealth, and power? Let me know so I can mark you down and keep track of all the sides! I don't have a specific player limit in mind and I don't know how many people this will attract (don't wannt be cocky :p) but I'll definitely cap it if I start feeling its getting out of hand. You CAN do miniature T1 fights, but I don't have time to settle random cat fights. So make sure you have character sheets, an agreed ruleset, and a judge before you start doing it. Narrative fights are preferred. What happens to the crown is already more or less established (PM me and Aleksei if you want to challenge my claim I guess), but the fate of Nu Martyr relies a lot of on character interactions and decisions. While the actual city of Nu Martyr is limited to a few buildings of damage (don't want to ruin a major city my first real time RPing in Tellus Mater lol) the province itself and outskirts of the capital city are essentially war grounds. As are little towns surrounding it and whatnot. So what YOU do and what YOU decide will have a major effect on how this thread plays out. I will be GM, so keep me in the loops of character interactions such that I can best orchestrate stuff within the thread. @Aleksei being the BL of Renovatio, however, will have the last say on anything she decides need her attention. I'm new to TM so if I'm doing something you guys know goes against some part of the lore or rules I missed, let me know ASAP. THIS WILL BE A BIG BATTLE. It's not a little skirmish. The crown of Asteria is a hella powerful Renovatio Relic that used to belong to the daughter of a Titan who was powerful enough to defeat a past Grand Kommadant. It's very important and PRIME Dallas isn't going to give it up easily. Nor should he. To give an idea, I'm thinking there will be about a million "soldiers" one each side. More or less. No idea how many threads this will be. Most likely one because this is sort of Lilith's/ my introduction into Renovatio so I don't want it to be too long. But a few threads will hopefully result from this. If @Aleksei is up for it, I'd like for her to take up the PRIME role for this fight. If she's too busy (cause busy busy bee she is), I can double unless someone else wants to step in. You are also allowed to "join" the attacking forces without necessarily being on Lilith's side. An example of this would be if the Dead or the Legion of Doom wanted to take advantage of this opportunity to bolster their infamy. *There shouldn't just be ONE large clash. Nu Martyr is a huge province. Make this story fun. Communicate with the other side and set up fun scenarios. Don't be afraid to lose a battle because there's more than one in a war. Clashes between player forces should be talked about before hand and planned accordingly. 🙂 Let's affect some lore you guys! TO WAR!

    This Land is Your Land....

    The land of Seinaru Forven is a survivor of the Elendaron "Spirit Wars" (as the locals like to call it). The event is very fresh in the people's minds, with lost friends and loved ones. They are afraid of what had happened, even though it seems to be over for them now. The land became a floating island, and ever since everything had seemed to calm down to common life again.... Everything except for the cities, and villages that have disappeared without a trace. There are forests and unexplored land there now, with no sign of the cities that had once resided there. This is where our story will begin. Virgin lands bring all kinds of ideas to mind... bottomless pits, strange creatures, man eating plants, and spontaneous earthquakes.... the possibilities are endless. Instead of me just making something up, I believe it will be more fun if I create a thread or two where the RPers can create something new (or old depending on the idea) to add to Seinaru Forven. There is the possibility of adding it to Seinaru Forven's canon, but only if it's a thread with a beginning, middle, and an end, more than just a few posts, and something interestingly new to add to the lore. The more creative, the better. All that's required is to bring your character and your imagination. Here are a few links to better acquaint yourself with Seinaru Forven, and their recent unfortunate events: If there are any questions, feel free to PM me. I'm hoping to make more than one thread out of this, if enough interest is shown.

    Yh'mi: Lirrey Lines OOC

    Many mysteries of Yh'mi have been explored, though answers have been rare. One of the more enigmatic elements of Yh'mi remains nearly untouched, travel unfairly discouraged by the Order of the White Hand for reasons they can't even properly elaborate upon. The Village of Lirrey. Entrepreneur and adherent to science, Doctor Xeyal wishes to fund an expedition to Lirrey to properly investigate the strange village and open up a possible trade route. I will be sending Doctor Xeyal's pet monster Sasha to accompany the group and @jaistlyn and potentially @Dolor Aeternum will be joining in and as well. I am looking for two other players interested in traveling deep into southern Yh'mi to investigate this strange town. A standard 72 hour post rate will apply. This is a canon thread, so any creative contributions made to Lirrey (within adult reason and following theme) is very likely to become lore. Now's an excellent chance to carve your name into horror history. Are you brave enough to accept? Current Roster: 1. Sasha - Reinholdt 2. Lunara - jaistlyn 3. Agony - Dolor Aeternum 4.

    Terrenus military sign ups

    Terrenus is in a state of flux. The civil war has seen the lightning rails and warp gates knocked out of commission, the wastelands turned to shawnee tundra as the genius loci fight among themselves, their losses and victories causing sweeping changes across the face of the nation, and city-states with a claim to sovereignty have been popping up like acne. And that's not even to speak of the various cults rising and plagues disseminating at the hands of a lunatic few . . . and the body-snatcher peril which has already infested many of the mega-cities. Join the military's tireless efforts to keep the darkness at bay. Fight enemies of Empire, go on diplomatic missions to strengthen alliances or forge new ones, join HERB or PETAL to catalog some of the exotic flora and fauna which either remain a mystery or are even as-yet unheard of. Research and engineering roles abound too. Note of interest - joining the military is a necessary step for citizenship and a great toehold for political aspirations. More information and available positions can be found in Terrenus Military - Hierarchy Information on open and taken assignments in Terrenus Military - Assignments Chat with your fellow military mates in the Terrenus Military OOC If you're interested or have any questions, post here or send me a PM.
  13. IC Teaser: Breaking News: The City of Casper has succumbed to a virulent plague. Prior to the enactment of a city-wide quarantine in hopes of impeding the spread of the contagion, thousands of citizens perished in agony as the plague ravaged victims' bodies and tore them from this world (see A Great Plague Comes to Casper in the Relevant Threads section of this OP). Yesterday, Casper's plight grew exponentially as the internal disruption posed by the plague exposed the city to a precipitous external attack. Assailants, whose identities have not yet been released to the public, engaged military forces within the city (see A Levee to Stop the Flow in the Relevant Threads section of this OP). While the assailants were driven back, estimates of the casualties suffered from the combined effects of the plague and the battle were estimated at five thousand persons with several thousand infected still quarantined within the city. Until further notice, government officials have declined to release more detailed information about the battle or the current status of the plague. Travel to and from the City of Casper is prohibited. However, sources at the boundary of the quarantined zone have reported a fleet of airships bearing the House Glasmann seal and the Glasmann Cryonics logo have arrived on the scene and, after a brief delay, passed through the quarantine and into the city proper. Does the collaboration between the Terrenus Military and one of the continent's premier medical firms guarantee a happy end to this catastrophe or does the involvement of the most infamous member of the Glasmann line, Caeceila Glasmann, imply a darker final solution to the epidemic? To find out more, lets go live to eyewitnesses at the scene... 15,000 infected individuals remain in Casper. Courtesy of Peacekeeper Zeph, the spread of the virus on which this arc centers has been halted for a time. Glasmann Cryonics is moving in to assist military forces with neutralizing all traces of the plague, analyzing the vectors by which the plague spread, and developing a vaccine against the plague so it will not pose a threat in the future. While members of the general not permitted to enter the city for their own safety, individuals supporting House Glasmann and military operations and a couple of individuals with special connections are allowed to enter secure, decontaminated zones within the city. Individuals with special connections could include reporters, medical personnel, emergency relief personnel, representatives of humanitarian aid organizations, and others who would like to be involved in this effort. Others might gain access to the city by busting through the quarantine or from having been trapped within the city once the quarantine was enacted. Shortly after this scene begins, certain individuals will begin to vanish from the city with little to no explanation. It's up to your characters to uncover the common link between those who have disappeared (if any), shed light on what has become of them, and take action in accord with their moral compasses. Other mysteries may be explored as well at your discretion. I'll be furnishing the opposition for the duration of this plot. A slot is reserved for @LastLight, but I'm not setting a limit on how many players can participate. If you would like to be part of the opposition or do something else related to what I have planned, please notify me of that somehow and we'll work something out. This will be a canon thread will have direct effects on how well a certain scenes I have planned for the future will proceed. Relevant Threads:

    Liberating The Slaver's Alcove

    After a run in with some local Slavers in Genesaris, the aspiring Slayer known as Jinsoku has decided to take it upon himself to raid and dismantle the Alcove, ultimately freeing the slaves that are already there, and hopefully stopping more from being created. While he very well could do this job on his own, things always go a lot smoother with the right team having been assembled. As a note, Jinsoku affiliates with The Order of Force Majeure whom affiliates with the Scarlet Regions as it's base resides in Predator's Keep. He also affiliates with Hyperion in the Rising West. These affiliations should not be mistaken as the source of this quest, rather this man Jinsoku himself simply couldn't bother to continue turning a blind eye to such a terrible operation happening presumably with the government's support considering the lack of response to the activity. A large group could be ideal, though it seems that any time the involved parties include more than 3-5 people, things start to get a little lost in translation, or the wait time between posts becomes so wide the activity never finishes. For that reason I'm open to a larger or smaller group for this job depending on who is involved and how those of us involved decide to go about the "quest". Also, in the case of larger interest, don't be surprised if I break one huge group into two or three small, fair sized groups for just that reason. This plot is intended to be submitted for canon. It'd be nice to get at least two volunteers to join me, though I definitely wouldn't be going beyond nine additional participants. (Max Party Size = 10 (Including Jinsoku))
  15. Try-outs for Bad Guy Infamy mysterious and powerful criminal syndicate is hosting a try-outs of sorts; a trial mission into the land of Taen for the chance to be inducted into this immaculate trade. Taen, too peaceful? Nonsense! Or at least, that’s what someone might have said 2 years ago. Today though, there is a certain constituent of the criminal class who searches out people and places like this. Someone who is too complacent, too inactive or inattentive, can get their whole world shaken up like a snowglobe! Even some who keep their fingers wrapped tight around their wallets can find themselves shaken up and broke any day. Mortimer's Research Laboratory of Extradimensional Matters and Magical-Affected Physics in the land of Taen fell under a certain someone’s scrutiny when it accepted the yolk of much of Taen’s main city, Lunaris’s scientific innovation. Furthermore, Mortimer’s established itself as the city’s lead apothecary. His advances in medicine and the distribution of pharmaceuticals has attracted the attention of a doctor named Theodore Alexander Roxyer-Rollins Amantis. He has come with four associates, representatives from a pharmaceutical firm called Catalyst Medicinal Corp. in search of employment at Mortimer’s and a contract between Mortimer’s and Catalyst. Good fortune willing, Amantis and the Catalyst representatives hope to establish a pharmacy supplied exclusively with Catalyst medicine. @amenities and @-Lilium- pose as pharmaceutical representatives from Catalyst while Amantis talks them up to Mortimer. What Do I Want? (any of the below) 1-2 Players: Pretend to be pharmaceutical interns with high ranking members of the criminal syndicate and scope out other pharmacies in Taen, then convince them to sell Catalyst medicine; secure permits from Taen quality control centers for Catalyst meds to be distributed in Taen; submit article to the local paper about how Catalyst medicine saved you or a loved one from illness; etc. The effectiveness of the extra 1-2 Players may allow one or both of them a comfortable rank in the mysterious and powerful criminal organization.
  16. I have a noble house in Ursa Madeum and have many plans for it, some in flight and others waiting for earlier threads to resolve. Unfortunately I only have so many hands! I'm consistent, so I know this stuff will get done one way or the other, but I'd love to see multiple things going on at once and then bringing it all together If you're interested in being a member of a noble house then check us out!: https://www.valucre.com/topic/40402-lost-house-of-dali/ Some previous accomplishments: Arrange marriage between a member of house Dali and a member of house Mythal to formalize/solidify their alliance. Both are in their early teens and are NPCs. The one on the Dali side is female Aiding House Hildebrand in uncovering details about a sinister and murderous plot in their family oh my goodness! Establishing a fast travel post between Dali and the mainland (Casper and Tia) and more importantly connecting it to Biazo Isle where they have a vineyard Also re-discovering their vineyard (this was also a land expansion which grew our holdings an additional 5 square miles) Striking a partnership between themselves and the Floracle Apothecary in Casper Vineyard has been cleaned up and in the process of opening for tourist business. Being managed by Merida Spidervalley (Witch's Brew) under Ampelos Spiderwalker Goldcourt line has made a few intriguing pieces of fashion which are gaining in popularity thanks to Envienne Goldcourt (Likelymissfortune). Envienne is also making a point to patronize various high class parties and get-togethers. And the stuff that I'd like to do and need help with: Start producing and selling the new fast-growing wine and drum up tourist business to the vineyard Gain an additional 5 square miles with another expansion thread Forge more alliances inside and outside of Ursa Madeum Goldcourt has begun trendsetting fashion. Keep pushing the envelop and make Goldcourt Dali a household name in thought leadership around fashion/art/high culture. I'm specifically looking to grow the Dali house so your character would either be a Dali from the ground up or would be your own character which you are marrying into the Dali family. You would pick one of the sub-families/branches to be a part of (Wyrmwalker for intelligence, Goldcourt for fashion, etc)

    Of Horns and Rifts

    Hello there! I’m going to make my very best attempt at keeping this interest check short and snappy, but I don’t make any promises, so here we go: There is an artifact made from the left horn of a foreign king that lies slumbering somewhere in the heart of Taen’s wilderness known for its capabilities of worldrift magic and I intend on claiming it for my character Ioreth Rhavon. What is Taen? It’s a pocket dimension located in a timey-wimey place connected to the Ursa Madeum island chain. You may know Ursa Madeum from its intrigue happy noble houses and stab happy pirates. What Taen lacks in people is made up for with trees that eat people that they do not like. I would suggest being kind to them for your character’s sake. What is worldrift magic? Think portals! Ioreth would like to be able to pop over to Hell’s Gate, grab her favorite ice cream, and pop back to wherever to share with her friends. Now wouldn’t you like to be one of her friends? Information for the Mork’Outh KIng’s horns can be found Over Here. Now that we have covered the whats, let us get into the whys and the hows. Ioreth Rhavon is a tome and artifact retrievalist for Book|Ends, a hub of knowledge both mundane and magical. She takes her work quite seriously, and I would like to say that she is a capable ally when one is out in the wilds. Her true reason for searching for an item hidden away in another dimension has to do with her current home: the growing town of Coth, where she resides in her library tower and assists with recording the high priest’s religious doctrines. Your character’s reasoning for assistance can be as simple as monetary gain or lust for adventure, or as complex as an in-depth backstory that requires further explanation. When I write a story for us to share, I try to make it so that each player has the opportunity to develop their character as much as possible. While the ultimate goal for this thread is a simple artifact acquisition, there are a few things to keep in mind. @Ataraxy requires a post once a week. If you need to be skipped, please let us know so that we can continue rolling forward. I’m going to hope that he pops in and informs us on how many pages are required, but be prepared to be writing quite a bit. If you need to bow out of the thread, we can collaborate for a way to do so without disrupting the narrative. I also have a plot line written out for this quest so we don’t do the unfortunate thing of sitting in a tavern for a page or two before launching into the adventure. There will be NPCs to interact with, places to discover, and even a few monsters to fight! If this sounds like your cup of tea, drop a link to your character and toss your ideas my way. If you have any questions, you can find me here or hunt me down on Discord. Thanks!
  18. PART 1: THE REVIVAL Winter DEATH IS COMING Zengi, the original Witch-King, is an ancient evil. A figure of lore and myths so powerful, so monumental that rumors whisper the being is beyond death. Though Jason of the Lions destroyed Zengi's physical body, the necromancer's spirit lives on. He cannot die. He cannot be vanquished. He can only be slowed. And, even then, there are no guarantees. Seeing the recent changes of loci dominance in the north, a group of ancestral Zengi worshipers have gathered at Dead Peaks. Like their nearly extinct predecessors, these evil men and women, garbed in enchanted robes so black their figures almost disappear in the dead of night, take on the title of Desecrators. It is their religion, their deepest beliefs, that Zengi was the one who should rule. Who should be above all others. Not these impostors who seek to take on his name, who have been dubbed the "Desolator" by denominations of their religion. There is only a single True One. It is not Alexander Endriel. It is not Lilith Reiter. He is Zengi. The Witch-King. Using the great abundance of magical power in Dead Peaks, a result of the Shawnee Loci winning over its thousand year battle with the Wasteland's Loci, this group of Desecrators plan to climb the Dead Peak mountains. The rumored birth of place of their Witch-King. There they will set up a ritual, one that feasts on blood and the living, in order to utilize the great quality and quantity of magic in the mountains to give life back to Zengi. To do more than summon his spectre or pulling an embodiment of his memories from his items. No, this time they will bring up back the Witch-King in his full glory. Or, at least, will try. There is no telling what might happen when dealing with Zengi. The power required to revive someone of that caliber is... incalculable. Heyo guys, Ataraxy here. A few of you have heard me, uh, planning out this storyline/ event and now, finally, I'm ready to kick off the starting thread! So for those of you who are either new to Valucre or haven't really bothered learning much about Terrenus, Zengi the Witch-King is kind of like the boogeyman of Terrenus. The big bad evil monster dude that parents use to scare their kids straight. I gave a quick summary of him above this, but that's by no means a comprehensive explanation of who he is and what he's done. He's a very big lore character that has so much lore surrounding him, making it a bit tough to nail him down. So, feel free to ask any questions about Zengi that you'd like answered. I may not be able to answer all of them, so it's possible some may need to be asked in the Terrenus AMA. Needless to say, players in this thread/ storyline should be ready to learn and ask about the time of Zengi. We're about to delve into the lore of one of Terrenus' most infamous villains! Right about now, you're either thinking "fuck this. Waaaay to much work" or you're thinking "God damn this sounds like such a fun time!" Both are right lol Now you might be thinking Well hot dog, sign me up! Unfortunately, because of how much pre-made lore surrounds this and how intrinsic it is to Terrenus, plus the GMing I'm going to have to do, I'm only going to accept 2 other players to join me. MAYBE 3 if I'm persuaded. But don't fret! This is only one thread in the storyline. It's just important this first one is done properly 😄 As such, it's NOT a first come first serve thread. Unless only 2 people are interested, I guess... hahahaha I'll be picking 2-3 players based on reliability, whether I'm currently in a thread with you, posting speed, etc. NOW! About the thread. Few things to keep in mind: All characters involved are Desecrators and absolutely worship Zengi All characters involved must be brand new All characters involved will die at the end of this The thread itself will be between 1 and 2 pages, so not necessarily a huge commitment writing wise. Zengi will be coming back, but not how you think >:) It's a surprise muahahaha
  19. In lieu of providing an IC bit to spice up this interest check, allow me, for the sake of brevity, to cut straight to laying out what I intend to accomplish in associated threads. In the very near future, House Glasmann of Hell's Gate shall endeavor to fabricate a capital ship with the singular mission of facilitating the paramilitary operations of Lady Caeceila Glasmann and her burgeoning private army. The capital ship shall be a perpetually airborne aircraft carrier capable of functioning as a mobile base and delivering heavy fire support to land and air based targets. As a leading pioneer in cryonics and advanced medical technologies, Glasmann Cryonics appears, at first glance, unsuitable for such an ambitious undertaking that diverges so drastically from its typical field of expertise. However, the direct involvement of the enigmatic Lord Glasmann and Lady Glasmann, neither of whom are known to any public entity except in name, and the judicious allocation of physical resources and favors owed has spurred this project ahead not only to the point of feasibility but to the point where designs and specifications have been stamped/approved and legally binding contracts have been signed. Wave after wave of contractors are flocking to Hell's Gate to profit from this monumental labor. An army of skilled laborers has found gainful employment in realizing a weapon which will cement the power of House Glasmann within and without the nation of Terrenus. When HGS (House Glasmann Ship) Silver Vision is complete, House Glasmann will inevitably wield military might on par with small city-states not in numbers but in sheer technological prowess. But... All is not well in Terrenus. The continent is rife with brigands, villains, and opportunists who would use Silver Vision to achieve their own, nefarious agendas. A few seek to destroy the vessel outright. Nothing would crush House Glasmann's morale quite like completely obliterating what is meant to be the key to their aerial predominance. Others would hijack the vessel once it is complete, adding it to their own arsenal and harnessing it in their own tyrannical campaigns. Still others would exploit the opportunity the construction of Silver Vision presents to sidle up to House Glasmann and craftily embroil them in wicked schemes. Upstanding forces, House Glasmann included, are aware of the threats such a tantalizing prize will inevitably draw and have taken measures to prevent the Silver Vision from falling into the wrong hands. In something approximating an alliance, they defend Silver Vision or offer their expertise to a weary House Glasmann and are rewarded in turn with shares in the final product. How will your characters influence this event? Will control of HGS Silver Vision remain with House Glasmann or will another party wrest it from their hands? This I leave to you to decide. This canon thread, and associated canon threads, shall revolve around various factions fighting for control of Silver Vision. I intend to push for canonization of Silver Vision as an S-Class military asset. While I will strive to paint a picture of Silver Vision's construction, it is up to you, and your respective factions, to impact the development of Silver Vision in some way. Your characters may, for example, attempt to assist House Glasmann, attempt to tamper with the airship, or even try to steal the airship and fly it out of the city. Attempts to meddle with this project are encouraged, and as this is a chaotic event, there is no cap on the number of players allowed to participate. Planning and preparation will, as usual, increase the chance that your faction/characters will succeed. Failure to acquire a share in HGS Silver Vision will not result in complete failure; characters who "fail" to achieve their missions will receive awards per arrangements we agree to in the OoC/Interest Check beforehand. As implied, factions/characters are encouraged to battle each other in the main thread or in associated threads, and battles needn't be physical. Please notify me of such threads so I can include link them in the final request for canonization (it would also be nice if such threads were also separately canonized). Ultimately, I, and the players of whoever allies with House Glasmann, will respond to attacks upon it, and such allies shall receive awards like gm permissions for HGS Vision in their own scenes. At the time I am posting this OP, no such alliances have been forged. Opposing forces are similarly encouraged to form their own alliances with predetermined rewards to increase their chances of success. Incidentally, conflict over HGS Vision need not take place within Hell's Gate. If all goes well, this will be a crazy plot potentially spanning multiple threads with loads of IC conflict and character development. For convenience, I'll post summaries of each participating team's progress as events unfold. The main thread will detail HGS Vision's construction and other spin-off threads, which any player can create, will be linked in this OP as it is updated. If the format sounds confusing or the scope is a little intimidating but you would be interested in participating if it was made clearer or if the groups were smaller, please leave a comment below and we'll work something out. Thanks!
  20. here, the woods are dark and deep and twisted with m a d n e s s . . . Hello all! Vielle here 😊 To start things off with the objective: I'm looking to hunt down an artifact — Persicaria's Amulet — for my noble House Hildebrand, which leads to an adventure through the Greywood, a sprawling forest of the titular trees said to have been grown by the first Lord-Hildebrand in a time where magic had been more rampant, more prevalent in the noble family's lineage. Some say that the forest is haunted, others cursed, but all can agree that one must never set foot into the Greywood: if a spark of madness does not take you, the strange creatures lurking in the undergrowth will. Ultimately, I'll be hunting down the artifact and having a grand old adventure with whoever comes along with me! ❤️ IMPORTANT — the story might pose some very real dangers for the characters involved, just to let you know before anything starts, so joining would be giving me express permission to throw some baddies and ouchies at you! 👀 For those new to this sort of thing, the narrative damage system will be implemented, with #10 lethal/death rolls included for the NPCs involved in the story, at the very least 👀 I'll be acting as both Player and Game Master for this particular storyline. Character development and the overarching story is important to me, so I'd like to discuss how your character gets roped into this thing before they actually jump in, so everything works out well for everyone! On that note, I also value intimacy and depth when it comes to these things, so I might only be accepting a select few to tango with us in the bushes! (if anyone is interested, that is, hahaha! *sad violin music plays*) 😂 As your humble Game Master, I only ask for these: Consistency! — I know real life can get in the way sometimes, and that's fine! I understand that quite well 😊 but I'd very much like to do this from start to finish with the same people, so being consistent would be very much appreciated and overall essential ❤️ Communication! — This is specifically related to the above; if you skedaddle for-a-while or forever, please do let us know so we can continue on without waiting for too long! 🙏 Respect! — Respect the storyline, respect the other writers, and all will go smoothly! Awesomeness! — Wait. I think you've got this in spades already 😎 So there ya have it! If anyone has any questions or concerns, do feel free to hit me up on that 👌 MEET THE NPCS ARTIFACT THREAD IS UP — check it out here! Will be posting to set the stage in the next few days!

    The Burning of Everrun

    Dun dun duuuuunnnnn~! You've heard the whispers. The rumors. Seen it with your own eyes. So now you ask yourself "Is this the Babylon Inc.'s revival? I've been checking out it's link in user lore which made me hella interested in it...hmmm." HAH NOPE NOT EVEN CLOSE HAHAHAHAHA GOTCHYA PUNKS Okay, story time! @danzilla3 and I wanted to participate in the super fun Terran Civil War event that's been going on now for a while, but I wasn't allowed to have a faction of my own cause I'm too cool. My boi Dan stepped up and we drafted up a rather fun idea for a faction called Everrun (click for link). Unfortunately both of us are involved in a bunch of plots that tended to be way more fun and got a lot more attention so the whole thing kind of fell by the wayside. We more or left forgot about it until a few weeks ago and we've been sort of bouncing some fun ideas off of each other. In order to shift the current Everrun to the city we have in mind, New Everrun, we first have to get rid of what is currently there. Or, at least, set up a scenario where something has to change. Essentially, to boil it down to the basics, New Everrun will be an area that has a central focus on advanced technology and will be backed by Veluriyam. Magic of any kind will be dampened to the level of Legend of Korra's pro bending matches (click of link). But I'm getting ahead of myself. This thread is where I want people to gather to BURN IT DOWN. We're gonna raze the entire faction city. Dan and I will have members of the Cult of Power make a deal with the guy in charge, the Prophet, and sort of compel him to grant their "wish." That wish will come at the cost of hundreds of lives in Everrun by Hell fire. Before the ritual is started and the fire summoned, the people of Everrun will be having a celebration of their relatively recent freedom from a group of ruthless bandits. You're free to either be there for your own nefarious reasons or to aid the cult in their desire for power. But know this, the Veluriyam Military has been keeping their eye on Everrun for quite some time. The moment things start going to shit, the clock is set. At the center of Everrun sits the Goblet of Truth. Anyone who drinks from it will be forced to tell the truth. Can you get it before the Veluriyam military arrives? Before the Hell Fire gets you? Before Lilith kills you for her goals? I challenge you to join us and find out >:) Also I know that @Veloci-Rapture wanted to be part of this and join the cult as a spy! Yeah lol even the Terran Military is beginning to quake in their boots 😄 @Higuu Thread will start in a little bit. Couple days probably. I'm not going to wait a super long time. I'd like this event to be over before Christmas! Uh, also not looking for a HUGE group. Including me, dan, and raptor, maybe 4 non-cult members. FLAME ON!

  24. Amalia is a savage land. It sits on the back of a giant hermit crab. It bears a mountain of infinite heights. It carries upon it a race of hiveminded pygmy who could destroy men in a 1-on-1 wrestling match. The Ulway are the people to discover. These infant-like creatures have just as much sentience as man, only they wield it as one racial body instead of one divided by the ideals of multiple individual minds. The Ulway work together. They are not hateful of Terran people, as they have met several of them, but they know little of them. The Ulway are, to speak respectfully, susceptible to new businesses. While they are an intelligent people, they lack understanding of the economy under which Terrenus works. The values of the Ulway, instead of lying in currency like gold and silver, lay in goods like hides and new types of foods or animals indigenous to Terrenus. Juyst as the Ulway are a new discovery to Terrenus, their island rising out of the crushing ocean depths less than a year ago, the Terrans are a wonder to the Ulway. There is so much to do here! Establish godly power among the Ulway The Ulway worship a man named the Ginger God. Go to Amalia and find the Ginger God, and challenge his position to join the pantheon of Amalia's gods. Start a Business on Amalia! Amalia is a tropical island with a massive, volcanic mountain in its center. It is a veritable paradise waiting for the picking by resorts all natures. Create your own species! Due to being fastened to the ocean floor by elaborate machinery, Amalia has evolved separately from Valucre for at least hundreds of years. As such, it has developed its own creatures and plants! The general theme for these flora and fauna is an amalgamation between biology and technology. Below are listed examples of this fusion for your own reference when creating your very own species! 1) Millibyte (insect) - Millipede-sized creatures with golden limbs and and silicon bodies that are able to carry data and transmit both biological and technological viruses. 2) Edafos Oplopanax Pagis (EH-tha-fohs oh-PLOH-pan-aks payEEss) A.K.A. Pagis (plant) - Rarely seen and unfriendly forest inhabitant. Technically a terrestrial vine, Edafos uses cleverly browned edges and cracked skin to masquerade as a dying arboreal vine. On the ground, it uses flexion and contraction to shift loose sand and earth, forming a pit, in a method similar to the trapdoor spider. Its ends dangle into the pit and, when its unwitting victim steps on the seemingly 'dead' vine and falls into its trap, typically the entire length of the vine falls atop it. From that point, Edafos' significant thorns (measuring upward of 4" when mature) puncture its victim and the vine attempts, again through its unique flexion and contraction mechanisms, to further ensnare its victim. Escape is possible, but extremely painful, and the long-term effects of Edafos' thorns are unknown. 3) Yellow Calquartz trees (crystal) - Mt. Ichthys is covered in naturally forming trees of crystal that seem clear, but at nighttime release light similar to sunlight shining through water that brightens much of Amalia. Guidelines for Creature Submission - 1+ page thread detailing the discovery of this creature - Title and one paragraph description of the created creature so I can add them to Amalia Lore!!! Do anything else! Amalia is a deveoping island. As such, it is open to any type of growth! You need not listen to my suggestions if you have read over Amalia Lore and want to do anything I didn't list. PM me or post here with any ideas!
  25. Would you like to be a town ruler in an independent nation? Do you like low-tech, magical settings? Tribal, Clan, and village warfare? Monster-slaying? Ritualistic religion? Elves? Would you like to be able to personally call forth the justice of god? If any of this appeals to you, I am currently accepting 3 candidates for a long term commitment to develop 3 new locations in the holy kingdom of Coth. Candidates will be asked to create a thread with one or two other people detailing the establishment of the town, and afterwards host threads in your new location to help build its unique traditions and history. Coth is a good-aligned Deiocracy (rule directly by a literal god) which will stand up to every sort of people or nation who rejects god's ideals of hard work, tight-knit community, honesty, equality compassion for fellow godly people and, of course, faith. Candidates must elect to be anointed into the religion. In Coth a parishioner and a civilian are one and the same. It is my intention to only accept applicants who want to grow Coth's civilization from a small size to, once day, a very large and advanced state. Coth currently controls a huge swathe of Terrenus as the religion spreads like wildfire through the land, however there is no administration over these lands. Why not let that administrator be you? Once accepted, candidates can choose any spot within Cothic lands not already claimed by another town or city. Ruler Slots Open: [1] Open [2] Open [3] Open [The Holy Kingdom of Coth]
