  1. "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. I will also put up these rules on the first post for easy reference. The current positions of everyone are: Top Left HollowCipher (Dan Palmer) ChaosLord (Noah) AthenasFire (Maria) Zashiii (Blackspear Cartel) Top Right NotMuch (Challara) zackrobbman (Charlie) Akiris (Ed) Grubbistch (Sir Darius Yorefield + men) Lawman (Kristall) Bottom Left Sovereign Lady (Astride) Tyler (Sgt. Murray) Fierach (Sheryl) Garion (Azytzeen) EpicRome23 (Gormaric) Metty (Arashi) Bottom Right SelenaNicole (Selena) P.N.See (Vlad) Moon Owl (Cedric Dermont) sorainvoked (Aryssin) Dolor Aeternum (Soryn)
  2. Assume that the following (tentative) letter is readily available alongside a some sort of letter-of-introduction-ish device (posted in town squares, on quest boards, etcetera) for the benefit of all characters across all forums. While the letter calls for characters who want to better Valucre, evildoers/neutral-parties may be able to sneak in as long as they aren't too conspicuous. Esteemed compatriots and foreign VIPs, It is my great honor this day, [Insert IC Date], to invite you to an enchanting evening at my ancestral home nestled in the arboreal spires of Hell's Gate on [Insert Second IC Date]. Though the first killing frost of this inhospitable season has already claimed its lot, my heart is not hardened to the suffering of our people and the plights of our neighbors. I trust you shall pardon my candor, for I must confess that this year was exceptionally unkind to this world we share. From the manifold tragedies Whsipernight wrought to the disconcerting fragmentation of Terrenus through which a psychopath ignited a full-fledged race war, our people, the people of Valucre, have experienced loss of such magnitude that we, despite the variegated powers, clout, and prestige we wield, will struggle to make them whole. I wish I could assure you that our fortunes are secured by the favor of the divine, that their light would guide us through our dark hours and deliver us from the evils that besiege us, but mere platitudes make poor bandages for a gushing wound. So it is that I welcome you to my house. So it is that I entreat people of every nation to come together under one roof, to gather around one hearth, to break bread together and forge lasting ties to one another. I am confident that together as one people, as one Valucre, we can trounce what misery fate foists upon us. This offer extends not only to those of a venerable bloodline but to petty nobles, soldiers, warriors, industrialists, scientists, engineers, merchants, and any other parties that are willing to breach the artificial barriers that divide us in pursuit of a far better future for all. For those that lack the means to travel to Hell’s Gate, my staff shall make all necessary arrangements upon receipt of your RSVP. Lodgings at the Glasmann Estate shall be provided for VVIPs. Formal, tailored apparel shall also be provided as necessary. The format of the event shall be as follows: [Please note the similarities between the format of this event and speed dating. The intent of this format is to cause characters and players that might not otherwise interact to engage with one another in the hopes of facilitating further rp. This is also why the IC qualifications for entry are so general.] Each guest shall be randomly assigned a number. Each number shall be associated with a collective and rally point. [Each player rolls dice in the dice roller. Each player’s character will be placed into a group depending on the range in which that number falls. Dice that are rolled and the predetermined ranges will depend on the number of characters involved in the event. Suggestions regarding the quantity of characters in each group are welcome.] Each guest shall congregate at the rally point and await the arrival of the other members of the collective. Once a collective is assembled, the members shall remain in each other’s company until the bell tolls. [The event will be divided into rounds. A round will end after a set amount of RL time has elapsed. Again, suggestions are welcome regarding the RL length of each round. Rounds may be extended as players see fit, but characters must be “cloned” in doing so as all participating characters are technically required to transition to the next group when a round is called.] When the bell tolls each number shall be assigned to a new collective. This process shall continue until the bell tolls twice consecutively, signaling that all guests should begin to prepare for the formal dinner that will be served. I urge you to join me for this momentous event. Very Respectfully, Lady Caeceila Glasmann Round 1 Pairings (Updated 11/18/2018):
  3. Legion of Doom S2 Legion of Doom Season 2 is here! I first want to apologize for the delay. Our promo artist was swamped with work, and I went from working 30 or so hours a week to 50 plus. But we’re out here now! So without any further adieu, here is Legion of Doom Season 2. Months have passed since the sacking of Last Chance. While the bodies of those lost have been buried and now lay cold in the earth and ocean, the war is not over. Dredge and the remaining army and civilians of Legion have taken to the sea and have vowed to return and raise Armageddon once more. A thick blanket of fog consumes and shrouds the seas surrounding Terrenus. Slicing through the fog there sails a massive ship. Adorning its sides with gruesome and vile decorations were the corpses of the fallen and captured. Humans, elves, dwarves, all those who dared to hold themselves hire than what Legion comprised itself of. At the forward bow of the ship stood Dredge. Armor beaten and scarred from the previous battle with a mix matched piece of enchanted iron where the original left side of his helmet’s faceplate once was. Rage burned inside the man and even the frigid and cold air around him could not quell the heat that boiled off his form. ”My Lord. We’re a day out from our target. Shall we ready the men?” Approaching the overlord was a spindly drow dressed in a thick winter jacket with ritual scars in honor of various demons of the nine hells covering his face. ”Prepare the men and have them fed with the remaining rations and be ready for battle.” Dredge’s voice was absolute and his resolve was unshakable. ”Yes My Lord.” The drow said with a deep bow afterwards. ”It’s going to be a red Life Day- wait. What do you people celebrate?” Stern deliverance was now replaced by uncertainty as to what this region celebrated as their winter holiday. ”Well my people celebrate the rising of-“ The drow would prattle on some long and unpronounceable name of some patron saint of demons as Dredge would rather of listened to nails on a chalkboard. ”Oh thank god it’s over” He said under his breath only for the Drow to list a following holiday that proceeded after the original one. ”You know what? It doesn’t matter, the point is we’re going to kill a lot of people.” Dredge said in a hurried manner to shut the drow up. ”Of course my lord. I’ll prepare the men.” and that was it. War is coming once again. War that would not only consume the land in darkness, but test the resolve of Terrenus. Seas will bubble. Cities shall burn. The civilized races of Terrenus shall be slain, and a new age of monstrous races will reign supreme. Probably. As the fog begins to clear, and light upon a frozen shore start to shine. They have returned. We have returned. We are Legion. Details! Legion of Doom Season 2 has been a challenge for us and especially me! Deciding what to do and how we can make a fantastic sweeping story as we did the last go around. We’ve debated and we’ve discussed at length how we can make the most interactive fan and community based event that we can. I feel as if we have landed on something that gives us a lot more free reign to tell a large and sweeping plot without sticking our fingers in the pies of too many people and their stuff. I do need to promptly apologize for the delay once again, I was hit with a crazy amount of hours and it’s killed my motivation to do much of anything. However the show must go on! So Legion of Doom Season 2 will be held at Shawnee! Yes, that’s right! The frozen north of Terrenus. There will be all the normal actions taken by legion that you have grown to enjoy, senseless slaughter, emotional moments of loss and heartbreak, and growth of characters through the lens of interactive storytelling. We encourage everyone to get involved be it for or against Legion and just have fun with the whole affair. We don’t take ourselves very seriously over here and if you want to kick back and watch for the luls or get invested in the story. Hard Release Date 11/25/18
  4. The Official Event Thread is Open! Darkness and Havoc A truly unfortunate union has taken place in Orisia, as Tenebre and Havoc have joined forces for the sake of causing the most amount of damage as well as claiming the maximum number of lives. In a sweeping move, the likes of which have never been seen in Valucre before, these two ancient and powerful deities have pulled and twisted the very fabric of reality in order to introduce the physical manifestation of another landmass in order to literally drop it atop of an already existing location, without the slightest regard for any living being. Ceyana is under attack, and there isn’t a warlord alive or enough mystic magic to stop the impending doom. As a new reality is forced to push and shove its way into Valucre’s existence, pockets of empty space have begun to open, sucking in and tearing apart anything and everything that happens to fall into them. There are clouds of darkness, like a dense black smoke, rolling across the newly forming countryside, choking and suffocating whoever gets caught breathing it. With no hope of salvation, all that is left for those who are able bodied and mentally strong enough to endure the horrors that will unfold all around them, is to try and escape. Come and join our open event, play a brash and selfless hero who tries to save as many souls as possible, or look out for number one, and make sure you get yourself the hell off the island before it’s too late. Setting While the events that are currently destroying a huge portion of Ceyana take place all over the island, for the sake of our event we will be concentrating on Antigua, the biggest city under the jurisdiction of the Black Queen. Antigua skirts the edge of one of the most robust and gorgeous rain forests of the island, and the city streets melt seamlessly from civilization to lush and totally wild greenery. People here seem to live harmoniously with nature and all that it has to offer. Some streets are paved, and still many more are open canals that flow naturally through the cityscape. The city is densely populated, which means it will be in a total state of anarchy and chaos as more than two hundred thousand people try to find a way to escape. Transportation will be near impossible to come by, so if you’re planning to survive, you’ll have to get crafty or sneaky. City Map City Key A. Evaton Castle B. Lowlands -- Primarily a transportation hub for people and goods, this area of the city is mostly defined by high industry sectors, densely crowded residential blocks, and a distinct lack of recreational locations such as parks, gardens, or plazas. C. High Gardens -- A residential area for up and coming middle class citizens, High Gardens is recognizable by its wide streets, plethora of green open spaces, and beautiful mid sized homes. D. Tranquil Heights -- Three distinct areas located on the highest parts of the city grounds, Tranquil Heights is home to the richest citizens of the Antigua. Houses here are palatial, with huge amounts of space dividing each along with ample country roads. E. Garden Groves -- Fruit tree groves, primarily avocado, apple, orange, lemons and limes. F. River’s Crossing Financial District -- Home to open air markets, stores of all kinds, and artisans of nearly every discipline. G. Arena of Thorns (inside the walls) -- The place where Antiguan’s go to de-stress and be social. A literal melting pot, where rich and poor come together to cheer on their favorite champions. Dangerous creatures are housed here, expect them to go free and roam the city streets once the event gets going. G. The Ancient’s Cemetery (outside the walls) -- A strange, massive mound of earth with tombstone-like protrusions. No one really knows what this place is, but legend has it that the dragon’s once buried their dead here. H. The Bread Basket -- An area of heavy agriculture, where the less visually appealing crops are grown and where livestock is raised. Objectives Evacuate the citizens of Antigua or save yourself. Tend to the wounded, if so inclined. Fight off the dark creatures that will emerge from the random pockets scattered around Ceyana. The tougher creatures may drop sweet sweet loot. (List of creatures to come) Bonus: Attempt to find and confront Havoc and Darkness to stop prevent further loss by engaging them. This will not stop the success of this catastrophic event but it could modify how or make things worse. They are hidden deep within the rainforest. Good luck! Rules -Open event, anyone and everyone is welcome. -No posting order outside of established individuals that are obviously interacting with each other. -Completely cooperative role play. Feel free to discuss with others what you would like to happen to your character. If you decide to kill off your character, it doesn’t necessarily mean they succumb to either Havoc or Darkness. They could just as easily be killed by someone or die as a result of any number of things, be creative! -Combat with lesser creatures does not have to be DM’ed by anyone though we may introduce elite level monsters that will require collaborative effort to take down. Be stylish and descriptive with how you deal with them. Come together to save innocent lives! -This event’s ending has already been established. There is no saving Antigua, or the rest of the affected areas within Ceyana. However, the size of the affected area can be lessened should the bonus be completed. -@Dolor Aeternumand I have final say in what occurs should any conflicts arise or any resolution is needed. PM for serious conflicts or concerns. Who Can You Play? While you are free to play whatever character with whatever background you like, I thought it would be fun to include a little list of common species that might be found around these parts -- just in case you want to create a brand new character for the event. -Orisian Human -Illyrian Human (you'll have to PM @Dolor Aeternum for more details). -Vampire (not to be confused with Orisian Vampyre) -Dragon Folk ( while Solum Irae is one of the few areas that will not be affected by the event, it is not far-fetched to say that there may be some dragon folk visiting Antigua while this is all going down). -Rainforest dwelling Elf -Any foreign visitor
  5. Do you want to die? Do you want everyone to die? If you answered "No!", then you should probably attend a round-table to discuss surviving the inevitable apocalypse. The Terran Empire is calling on citizens and their allies who have the means and the wits to discuss solutions for problems facing the modern Terran: the Unnatural Dilemma, the Body Snatching Menace, the Genius Loco, and more. Join us at SAD today, or you'll be really sad tomorrow! If there is a tomorrow. SAD will be held at the First Temple in Ignatz. All high-ranking members of the clergy and military will be present to observe the conference. IC Link: Symposium Against Doom. Thread has started and is closed on a case-by-case basis to future attendees. Hi everyone. 😃 I'm looking for characters that might be able to help solve many of the crises facing Terrenus today: diplomats, scientists, engineers, wizards, soldiers, neutral foreign nationals who want to survive, etc. SAD will be a dialogue driven thread. Since dialogue should keep moving, we're going to follow brevity rules (300 word max, 3 day turnaround) and characters should have something to say about the topic on every turn. The Terrenus government will implement sweeping changes based on the points raised at the Symposium. The way I imagine it proceeding: a Terrenus official will open with the 😲dire😲 facts of life in Terrenus, and we'll circle through the round-table to present experiences, theories, thoughts, concerns, questions and most importantly how to deal with it all. Be prepared to be famous or infamous depending on what solutions you suggest. Disclaimer: any hostile or evil creatures that come within 10 miles of Ignatz during SAD will be destroyed. Attendance List: 1. Grubbistch - Elsera Elludoria (Diplomat - Terrenus) 2. Lilium - Capria Belvardi (Diplomat - Terrenus) 3. Ataraxy - Saturn (Reporter) 4. Tenkai Matsumoto - Tenkai (Order of Force Majeure) 5. Deus ex Aizen - Raveena (Regent - Hyperion) 6. supernal - Evelyn DeLamprey (Engineer - Handymen) 7. Paroxysm - Renata (Peace Keeper - Terrenus) 8. Grimmholt - Audric (Count - Grey County)

    The T.H.R.I.V.E. Initiative

    After the fall of the Tyrant Regime, the Taen Empire and it's noble houses established themselves across the islands of Ursa Madeum. The island of Thraece is in dire need of arable land and healthy water to rebuild business and establish Port Thea and it's Consulate ties to Terrenus and Genesaris proper. As the only noble family on the island, House Senaria is spearheading a Conservation alongside the Thean Consulate to help restore the land, and protect and preserve it's ecological integrity, as well as provide an institute for studying, collecting, and breeding new flora and fauna across Ursa Madeum. Certain to be quite the task, she's enlisted the help of other Taen nobility and beyond to assist her in Thraece's renaissance. Thus she proposed THRIVE. Thraecean Headquarters for Rehabilitation and Innovation of Vital Ecology Phase 1: Restoring Coastal Integrity - The coastal waters are rife with dead zones. As areas suffocate from a lack of oxygen due to explosive algae growth triggered by nutrient poisoning from the mainlands, flora and fauna alike either die off, or relocate beyond ideal reaches, a notable reason for Thraece's economic suffering. Extract these suffocating sea beds and help revive the oxygen levels in the water. Introduce new species of floral and fauna (open invitation for lorecrafting!) so that the biome and begin to balance itself out! QUESTS FOF PHASE 1: Phase 2: Restoring the Mainland Integrity - Stripped of nutrients and life, Thraece is practically barren, but holds enormous potential. Having made a deal with the local leyline, Raveena is keen to make the land arable again. Introduce new flora and fauna with the help of House Hildebrand, House Senaria hopes to revive the agricultural business for Thraece, as well as the future Port Thea's economic boom. Phase 3: Building the Conservation - Once the land and sea have been returned to a healthy state, the Thrive Conservation will be built as an open Hot Spot for Port Thea. People will be able to study lore, create lore and invent new species of flora and fauna to contribute or borrow. I like the idea of an IC think tank, where people can study for medicinal purposes whether it's to heal someone or poison them. Of venturing to Port Thea for a quest to find or breed a unique species that is a key component to something else. Of finding the scale of a rare fish for artifact creation. I personally have an apothecary I'm adding to the city so I'll personally get plenty of use! I think the possibilities are limitless, and having everyone's ideas pooled in, invites a wealth of knowledge and information sharing. One component of Thrive will be something like a group that is responsible for traveling outside of UM and collecting species, studying them and reporting back and if any would be vital or may thrive in UM. Some may be quests, others may be Slice-o-Lifes. I'll flesh out more details based on interest. I thought it'd make for a really great project that people could help contribute with. Anyway! Look forward to more details on that once I get caught up with posts I owe.

    Members of a Noble House

    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 And the stuff that I'd like to do and need help with: Cleaning up that vineyard and opening it for business. I have another member setup to manage it but that doesn't mean your character can't come in and help out, either as a gardener/botanist, as marketing/advertisement, or whatever else comes to mind. They're close enough to Aspyn to open up business prospects Gain an additional 5 square miles with another expansion thread Forge more alliances inside and outside of Ursa Madeum Do something with the Goldcourt line of the Dali branch which has to do with fashion and culture. Think it'd be super cool to have someone become a fashion designer and start trendsetting fashion in U.M., then Terrenus, then internationally 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)
  8. Kaess Festival of Lights: The Atrium of Lights Hyperian Funerary Ceremony
  9. In celebration of the legacy of the legendary and ancient Order of the Sword Saints, the most noble and well respected House of Dali is organizing and hosting a Festival of Blades that is going to be held in Ursa Madeum. The event serves to praise the beauty and art of sword fighting in the form of the clashing of blades and spilled blood in heated combat. Word has been sent far and wide at great expense to invite the most naturally talented and renowned warriors both within Terrenus and surrounding continents. The festival will be divided into two acts, all with different types of challenges for the participants to conquer. Should you not wish to partake in the combat there will be a place where people attending the spectacle will be able to socialize during and between the acts. The fighting and the socializing will be in different threads to avoid confusion. You can also apply to be part of a pre-selected jury for each Act. The jury will act in character to vote and give reasoning to their vote to settle disputes and other matters that might rise up. Note that because the jury need to be as unbiased as possible you cannot fight within a act that you are also controlling a jury member for. Please post below if you want to partake in the fighting, be in a jury or just want to attend the event to give homage to the legacy of the Sword Saints, partake in conversations or just watch the fighting. This event will also lay the foundation of the return of the Order of the Sword Saints. Should you be interested to join the order then please tell me here or PM me in private and we can discuss it in more detail. ___Act I___ Singles Exhibition The ultimate showdown to settle superiority. Keep your wits about you, to read your opponent, take advantage of their mistakes and outmaneuver them to claim victory. At the end of the day there can only be one, the question is do you have it what it takes to claim victory against your opponent? Rules & Regulations Victory will be achieved by points in best of three rounds. For each round a maximum of five posts by each participant is allowed and the winner of each round will be decided by who has the advantage after said moves. If nobody has advantage after five moves the round will be draw. Should the final round be considered a draw, an additional sudden death round will be had where the winner will be determined. Should any participant not post within a reasonable time they will be given a 24 hour warning to post or be considered to have yielded and their opponent will be victorious. Any disputes or other matters that might rise up will be settled by a pre-selected jury.

Survive and claim glory or perish and become lunch food. Display your skills in combat while you compete against fellow warriors to slay the most beasts before the last creature lays dead on the ground. But be careful or the hunter may very well become the hunted. Rules & Regulations Victory will be achieved by the participant with the most points at the end of the a classic exhibition of horde mode. Outsmart your fellow participants to prove yourself at the superior hunter. Injuries to beasts will grant points between 1-3 due to severity of the injury inflicted to the target. Kills will always grant 5 point to the participant striking the killing blow. Should two or more participant strike a killing blow together they will all be granted 5 points. Any disputes or other matters that might rise up will be settled by a pre-selected jury. Participants Iyalon Izora (House Hildebrand) @ourlachesism Mōmoku Akuja Kenshi @Etched in Stone Jinsoku Hayabusa (Order of Force Majeure) @Twitterpated Makiel Thorend @Fennis Ursai Should you want to join as a fight please also post a link to any character sheet and also if you are representing any land/organization etc. Please note that this event is to celebrate the aspect of sword fighting, therefore any weapons that are not bladed ones are not permitted, nor is the use of magic or other similar abilities. Although Valucre is mild power, this even shall be in the Enhanced Realism power scale, meaning that your character will be limited to that scale during the fights. Below you will find some basic info regarding the power levels allowed. Allowed Enhanced Strength Enhanced Speed Enhanced Reflexes Enhanced Agility Any skills or techniques based on the above will be allowed. Not allowed Magic of any kind Telekinesis or other mental powers Elemental manipulation Any skills or techniques based on the above will be not be allowed. These are not fights to the death but rather exhibitions so you can use that to explain why your character would hold back. If you have any questions feel free to post them below and I will answer. More info will come regarding the event itself. Rules and other content might change to better cater to the enjoyment players. While the fights will be in T1 style the idea is that it will be quite the casual event, the main goal is not to determine the most skilled individual in T1 combat but rather the fun aspect of each participant.
  10. The Current State of Things Approximatley one week after Buford's disappearance, thick white mist of unknown origin has suddenly appeared along vast stretches of Terran soil (Casper, Forgotten Wood, Coconino Marsh, a stretch of the Ponkapoag River). The mist has amnesiac effects. The longer one is inside or surrounded by the mist, the more memories and context one loses (skills and motor-functions remain). This is a temporary effect, as leaving the mist will eventually return the afflicted to normal, but it takes time and there is no known rapid cure. Other areas are afflicted by randomly and rapidly growing black spires, hundreds of meters tall, with hollow interiors which can be ventured into (Gaian Academy, Last Chance). These spires generate an oppressive and unsettling influence. Anyone within a 25-mile radius of the spires, both sapient and animal, find their aggression and anger gradually building to critical mass. Some areas (Tia, Weland, Blairville) suffer under the curse of both. The Spires and Mist work in concert, erasing memories, increasing aggression, and inducing visual and auditory hallucinations. The Players How does this influence my character? Passively - If you're creating a new thread in the affected areas, incorporate the Mists or Spires and their influence. You reap rewards for immersion; the longer you play in a mist-covered area, the stronger your character's mind becomes (. . . to a point) Actively - Participate in the shared events to destroy the Spires and save Terrenus from this sudden disruptive phenomena. How does my character learn about these events? The Backstory and Exposition can be pieced together by your characters, starting with a moderately publicized Missing Person's report on Buford which covers his recent venture into Yh'mi. The environmental effects are obvious and attract notice. All information under Current State of Things can be learned through the Daily Weekly as a plot device. Where should I go to interact with this event? You interact with the Mists by roleplaying in any the affected areas. You interact with the Spires by posting in one of the threads made to relate to Spire locations. All threads are considered Open but group size may be limited by storytellers or anyone acting in that capacity in the interest of the collective tale. Threads will be released in staggered fashion, with the first thread taking place in Tia and being released in the next 24 hours. IC threads below, updated as more get added: [to be added] Closing Notes Mists cannot be dispelled. If you post 5 times in a mist-affected area and incorporate this element into your roleplay, every 5 posts you make will earn you a Bottle of Amnesia (erase a memory or mental/psychic trauma). Every 10 posts (for which you do not trade for a Bottle) has permanent tiered effects: 10 - Become sensitive to psychic intrusions (mind-reading, mental illusions, memory alteration, etc) 20 - Become sensitive to other psychics (detect those with psychic abilities or potential) 30 - Become capable of stopping psychic attacks on self BUT ALSO gain mental disorder (roll for 1-5: schizophrenia, anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, PTSD, ADHD) Mists will disappear on their own Mar 2016. Spires can destroyed. Each Spire can be destroyed by a specific method, which information can be found in the Spire itself by visiting the portal at its heart. Snow can be seen on the other side of the portal, and the method of destruction will be written in the snow. Spire One (Blairville): Into the Silver Dream | OOC thread - Completed! Spoils include an extremely tough shield that makes the wielder's skin hard as granite - but also highly flammable with a vulnerability to flame. Spire Two (Last Chance): The Great Last Chance Spire | OOC thread - Completed! Spoils include boots that can stick to any surface, unless it is covered by snow or ice. Good for 5 uses. Spire Three (Weland): In the Misty Moonlight | OOC thread Spoils include a mask that enhances vision and enables night-vision and ability to see through illusions and invisbility but wearer becomes vulnerable to loud/sudden noises Spire Four (Gaian Academy): Public Safety | OOC thread - Completed! Spoils include gauntlets that can multiply strength in any body part but which will also damage it. Good for 6 users. Spire Five (Tia): Conspiring for Fame | OOC thread Spoils include a spear that can regenerate as well as deal injuries that cannot be properly healed, but which makes the wielder much more sensitive to pain Mist - Coconino Marsh: Requesting Backup! Each Spire has one-fourth of an encrypted message and one of them has the key to decrypt it. Communication and teamwork is encouraged and necessary. Use the Daily Weekly for communication. I suggest personal ads or something! Though the Spires and the mists will need to be dealt with individually, players can gain valuable clues concerning their origins and weaknesses by heading to Yh'mi and finding/replicating Buford's research.

  11. Let me bring you down a particular street in Andelusia. It’s out of the way, it’s secluded, and the stone tiles crackle under your footfalls, smooth and sun-warmed. You hear the birds chirping in the air, the breeze rustling through the prismatic leaves of the trees, the distant sounds of laughter and civilization just over the edge of the buildings. Can you picture it? You’re good? Now, you see that white door over there? It’s on the left, the building with the barred windows, the shards of painted glass on the ground (don’t mind those; they’ll sweep them up soon). The signage isn’t readable from this distance, so come on, let’s take a closer look. There’s—wait, there’s a woman coming out. She’s placing a colorful sign on the door; can you see it? Oh, look, see what it says: BARISTAS WANTED (we're reopening, dearest citizens! we need baristas: love for tea required! see the manager for more information) Hello all! Vielle here 😊 I've a new project coming up in Ursa Madeum: welcome to The Andelusian High Tea Society hub! A teahouse in Andelusia that caters to all walks of life, including the noble elite to which they provide seclusion and luxury within the city. Despite being a friend and partner of House Hildebrand (in particular, as the house provides uncommon herbs and plants for the teahouse’s special brews), the Andelusian High Tea Society is ultimately considered neutral ground, where commoners and adventurers can enjoy a little of that magic liquid goodness, and where the nobles can meet with each other somewhere they are considered equals. Now, this is a unique teahouse. The baristas are good listeners to people's problems, as well as good people readers, and if permitted, will serve customers the tea that they believe suits them best (they usually get it right 😉). The owner is a tea specialist and a herbalist, also a personal friend of Nairne Hildebrand, and can, for a certain price, weave magic into brewing the tea, which fuses the brew with magical effects. For example: need a dash of courage to propose to your loved one? The owner will brew you a blend that fills you with a little bit of that needed push to do it. After getting shut down during the rule of the Tyrant King, they're now reopening with bigger, better, and more elaborate facilities—thus, they'll be needing new baristas to replace those who have relocated to foreign countries when the teahouse shut down. What does this mean for you, dear reader? 😊 If you'd like to take up the call and become a tea sommelier for the Tea Society, look upon the information below: First, you'll need a barista character! When you've made one, please post your barista's profile on the Tea Society's organization thread. As the teahouse will be a hub thread, any time customers come in, you may be asked to serve them if you are requested to do so. Deep character interaction is one of the founding pillars of the Tea Society, so let's make it so! 😊 I imagine the hub to have a fairly lighthearted atmosphere unless the overarching story calls for it, so if you'd enjoy a little slice of life or casual chats with other characters, this is the place for you. ❤️ Aside from looking for baristas, let me all invite you to The Andelusian High Tea Society's Grand Reopening as well! Every noble house in Ursa Madeum is invited to come celebrate with us, and of course, this event will no doubt allow for social interaction between the houses and so forth. The letters are to be sent soon, stamped with an icon of an ornate tea cup and scented with the faintest hint of mint and lavender. We look forward to seeing you there. 😊 Adventurers and so forth are also invited to come! Now, don’t be late; tea’s at four. ❤️
  12. Thread: Players: @Aleksei @Grizzly @danzilla3 @Alexei @Garion @Grubbistch @Maverick @EpicRome23 Posting Expectations: 1 per 3 days. I am going to be very stringent on this! You will be skipped if you don't post within those time requirements. I am wanting to make the success of this quest canon, so I'm going to be pushing hard to keep this thread on track and 100% completed to The Hummingbird's standards. I will tag you when it's your turn to make sure you know when you're up. Where: Whispernight Ruins - Kuratel. Kuratel This leader in innovation left behind an airship filled with magically-enhanced rifles among a ruin of stone, steel, and dead bodies. Two dragons guard the city against intruders hoping to do good, one a Red Dragon and the other a Black Dragon. Both are lich lords and highly intelligent despite rotted brains, though they are more animalistic in nature and can barely talk. The airship was known as Heaven’s Mercy and is still operational. Warriors from afar have discussed grabbing the ship and fighting the dragons in the sky, suing the ships; powerful firearms to kill them both, then flying away with the ship’s army-full of rifles and guns in hand. The problem is fighting their way through the horde of geists that surround the airship base itself. There are other airships – Warrior’s Soul, Paradise High, Hellion Sky, and more – yours to keep if you can down the guardian dragons and their army of undead. - By @The Hummingbird What: A woman named 'She' has pasted flyers anywhere and everyone for people to see. She is looking for some hardy adventurers to go with her to the Whispernight Ruins in Genesaris, and get the airships - Heaven's Mercy (+ the magically enhanced rifles inside it), Warrior's Soul, Paradise High, and Hellion Sky. If you join her she expects all the ships and the extra goodies to be delivered safely to Aelindra or else no one gets paid and she will make sure you get punished (IC you won't be killed or anything, but you will be hunted down). Goodies: Your characters will be rewarded for their services retrieving the ships and their goods, and delivering them back to Aelindra. This opportunity is for characters looking for wealth and constant flow of work. After the success of this quest, your character will have an income that could sustain a reasonable living for the next 3 years. You will be on a list of people who will have first dibs on a job, which you can deny or not, you're not strapped to take every quest. I will be your DM for this quest, so your characters will have countless opportunities to get other goodies, like weapons, enchantments, etcetc in the quest. Hello everyone! Hope this Interest Check grabs you This is open to everyone. With me being your DM I will make sure to ensure to accommodate everyone the best that I can, but I will say this: This won't be a walk in the park, nor will it be a sprint across lava. It'll be difficult considering there are all sorts of things in the way to a successful completion of the quest. Expect your character to get injured and a little lost. No deaths unless you want me to kill your character, then that's cool, just let me know. If you have questions or concerns, post them here!
  13. Well, if the other Noble Houses in Ursa Madeum are doing it... House Singlance is the newest of Ursa Madeum's noble houses, its only two members right now were raised to nobility by Empress Rozharon Parálios, and now seek to modernize Ursa Madeum. A few problems though: They've made an enemy in House Uldwar in a move they saw as loyalty to Taen. They've so far been unable to establish themselves in Ursa Madeum The people generally hate them They have no history They aren't really all that noble They have few if any allies right now So, as a major noble house, Aveline is calling minor noble houses dedicated to STEM pursuits, education, and infrastructure development under their banner. House Tankred has, to her knowledge, pre-declined. Thurgood however, is aligning the house with John Wilder, an organized crime boss, and is calling for other criminals on Ursa Madeum to either work wih them, or die. Also, he's offering support to skilled labor guilds and specialized laborers if they choose to struggle for better working conditions and compensation. Who this is for: Those who want to play a minor noble house in Ursa Madeum, either new, already existing but struggling, or reforming after being disbanded by Damien Gillick's rule, that seek to improve the quality of Ursa Madeum through science, technology, industry, education, and/or infrastructure Those who want to play a criminal element in Ursa Madeum, such as a street gang or smuggling ring, that wants the backing and outside connections that John Wilder can offer, and the "legitimacy" of aligning with a major noble house Those that want to offer political, trade, intellectual, or other support Characters interested can speak with Thurgood or Aveline Singlance, and at least one of them is at the Mil Dot Lunaris lately. The message can either get to a character by either rumor, or officially in either a political circle or the criminal underworld (depending on which side you're responding to). Players interested can post below or send me a PM (but title it appropriately).

    House of Choisel, BEWARE OOC

    To begin, my character is not from this world but from Gaia Primus. There are seven pureblood families. I encourage more Houses to come and play along and join us as a Society of Purebloods. However, I think starting with one which would be Choisel, would be a good start until we find more followers. I was kinda' shaky about this one, seeing as I don't know how Valucre and you all are going to take the idea of a totally new race of vampires here. For the most part I feel, people generally don't like vampires, but we all know how cool these undead beings actually are. These pureblood families are the first of vampires and are considered as the highest ranking from a lineage far, far away. I've looked at the vampires of Valkohyr and we share common abilities for the most part, but this is a different breed of vamp from a totally different world. I have information on the pureblood in my profile if you'd like to look. As for goals I plan to take some things over with time. Primarily I want this to be a unification of Purebloods. Let me know what you think, guys!

    Sovereign's Fury

    "You've never experienced the Whispernight when it first came, have you? No, I can tell from the look in your eyes you haven't, or else the very memory of that event would leave you numb and shaking." “Oh sod off with your theatrics. No fool in their right mind would just venture to the Ruins. Only knobheads and the desperate go there, seeking their gold and glory and what not.” - Orion and Artamese -- Artamese Prewitt loves the safety and comfort of her books and magical artifact research at the Enoteca: Wine and Workshop. As a Scrivener who only excels in the past (an obsolete subject according to the Chapel Alliance), she's quite passionate about historical artifacts and dreams of the day that she can go exploring into the world, embracing danger in the name of history and magic. Plunging into the depeths of Kuratel on the Queen's orders was not her idea of a first rodeo. Raveena has commissioned an expedition in the Whispernight Ruins of Kuratel for magical firearms, and Alethea's Air Force can always use another ship. Relying on Arty's ability to handle magical artifacts, she has explicitly requested the Artificer to be a part of the expedition, much to Arty's dismay. Despite her fears, she hopes this will be the adventure that allows her career to take off faster than before. She just simply cannot do it alone! That's where you come in. Join Artamese as she uses her resources to track down the long-missing Adand Withund and unearth the truth behind the mysterious artifact known as Sovereign's Fury. -- Dibs on this quest go first to: @carrionjackal @danzilla3 @Frostbinder as they defacto work for Rae in some capacity. So prepare to work with them! Ideal characters for this quest: Mechanics and/or engineers, in case the ship has problems before, during, or after taking off. A lich or a necromancer in case Frosty can't join in would be nice. Soldier prospects for the Hyperian Imperial Military, the Aralim. Wizards, witches and/or magi of any affinity would be fun to have too. A weapons specialist! Can't have too many of those! Another Artificer that can talk shop with Arty. As usual, I hope everyone can play nice and have fun with this. The general plot line I have is that there was a well known family of pilots, captains and aeronautical engineers, and supposedly one such family member survived Whispernight, but went into hiding due to some terrible secret. But the jist remains, "Find the clue. Find the clue and find the dude. Find the dude and get to the goods. Don't die." Also Lich Dwagins, yeey~ ^o^

    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))
  17. Greetings! Vielle here 😆 I lovingly represent the bountiful House Hildebrand of Ursa Madeum! To put it simply, we style House Hildebrand as the Queen’s Chalice, with jurisdiction over plentiful farmlands, crop research, and somewhat-most of the food supply of Ursa Madeum. We’re all about that plant life. 😉 Now, there is a Game of Thrones occurring in our fair nation, and to increase our wealth and power as a noble house, I'm inviting some lovely people—and by that I mean you, yes, you!—to take part by taking control of one of the lesser farming houses of Ursa Madeum under House Hildebrand! Definitely more fun to write together than alone! 😃 Now, of course, you can play the farming houses however you want: the name, the house members, the land, the crops you control, everything—except that the houses will either be under House Hildebrand’s jurisdiction or partnership, or in negotiations to obtain better ties with our noble house. We’ll also be doing threads to gain more Land, too 😅 (You can also do diabolical stuff. I'll pretend I never saw you 👀) This interest check also extends to anyone who'd like to make a character and be a part of or mingle with House Hildebrand. If you'd like to get in on our very own Game of Thrones through connections with our noble house, that will be quite lovely as well! If these ideas interest you, please leave a comment or send a PM my way so we can plan out our, ehem, plots of intrigue 😆 House Hildebrand welcomes you, and may your lands be peaceful and your fields be prosperous, as ours are. For Peace and Plenty! 😉

  20. From the creator of BE A GOD rp meny months ago in times when the creator knew almost nothing of rp (mostly cuz he was newb).... we bring you.... BE AN ALGAE ! Have you ever sought to wonder what it is like to rp not as an individual character, an entire empire, or as a supreme entity with little background, but as a microscopic organisim that starts as an algae. Have you ever questioned wether such a rp was even possible? Start as a single algae that pops up in Renovatio , eastern Oo'xora and find your way to the sea to thrive. Take by the waters or by air even, find and Murder other organisims that get in your way and survive!.
  21. Two if by Sea Legion on the move! Spurred by the dark overlord Dredge, Legion forces have finally made their first large scale attack against the good people of Terrenus! Under the cover of dark and false distractive peace talks by the dark lord Dredge. Legion has taken their fleet of landing and boarding craft to the Terrenus city of Last Chance. However the men and women of the Terric Military have taken precautions for such attacks against Legion and their brutal tactics. Stationing men at the cities of Ashville and Last Chance, the Terric Military hopes to ward off any attacks set forth by Legion. For in the morning, darkness will descend upon Last Chance. Objectives Objectives One (Saving Private Ryan Reference): Landing one and a half kilometers away from the ports of Last Chance, the Legion army must fight their way up through beach fortifications in order to reach the ports. The Terric military must defend the ports and beach at all costs. If the Legion breaks through then the primary objective is not to raid the city itself, but board, steal, and sail off with as many ships as possible. Objectives Two (Prison Break): The various dragons of Legion carry drop pods of elite commando squads. Dropping down within the very walls of the prison itself with enough explosives to release nearly every prisoner within its walls, Legion intends to do just that. The primary objective is to release the prisoners onto the people of Last Chance. Though there is one task that Dredge has personally asked of his men. Within the deepest and darkest reaches of the prison lay the most vile and evil men and women to ever walk Terrenus. Free them and extract them to join Legion’s ranks. Rules New Rules: 1: POST HEADER!! I can not stress this enough!! To make things easier on everyone as this will more than likely be a large thread. Put a header on your post with this template. This is MANDATORY Character Name: (Who is your character) Affiliation: (What side are you on?) Location/Objective: (Where are you?) Allies: (Who are the allies who are next to you and writing in your storyline be sure to @ them) Enemies: (Who are your enemies that you are fighting be sure to @ them) 2: You will only be allowed to command two squads of twelve. That’s twenty four men at your disposal. If you want to control a War Beast or something of the sort, be sure to ask your faction leadership via the OOC thread so faction leaders can make a judgement call on it as all large scale troop movement will be handled as background noise by leadership. This is a character focused thread and not a game of Risk. 3: Have fun! Original Rules (still in effect) 1: Wheaton’s Law aka don’t be a dick 2: Treat your opponent with respect 3: All OOC squabbles need to be settled via a pm. Don’t drag your drama to the OOC thread 4: If an agreement can not be reached then faction leadership will decide. 5: If faction leadership can’t reach an agreement then and ONLY then will site staff will be involved. These people have better things to do than deal with our disputes. 6: No writing damage, character death, or mass NPC death in your post as a fact without the express permission and consent of the other writer 7: Doing a power move that can violate the Mild Powers ceilings is fine. We all love a dramatic moment. But doing so needs to come at a cost. Losing all your strength, injury, death of comrades, etc etc. pay to play baby. 8: All are welcome to partake 9: Really, just please don’t be a dick. The IC thread will drop tomorrow
  22. Hello all. I've started a thread in Aelindra, the sole purpose of which is to steal a prototype for my character. My plans for the thread are pretty low key, and open to everyone. I imagine there will be some infiltration, some fighting, and a speedy exit from the town (see: fleeing from the authorities). For a more in depth breakdown of what I plan on doing please scroll to the bottom, otherwise, here are some keywords to give you an idea of what this thread will be like. Cooperative storytelling Mid level fantasy, with Magitech. Mild Powers (important!) Casual Thieving/Heists Low Impact - no/minimal killing, emphasis on low property destruction. Strategic - Not just a fight, I hope. If you are interested, check it out, here is a link. Otherwise keep reading below if I haven't captivated your interest yet. This thread is open to all, but will be low/no turn order. I wanted to try a new format, I will be the 'anchor' so to speak. I'll be posting a minimum of once every three (3) days, sometimes more often (but no more than once a day). Everyone and anyone else who would like to participate is encouraged to post in between these times, pushing the story or interacting with characters however they want. I think this might either provide an interesting freedom of choice and action, and I can bring everything back together to drive the story when necessary. My only request is that you don't post multiple times between my own posts, to prevent the thread from derailing, or stepping on other people who want to participate. No runaway trains here. From what I have read on Aelindra I imagine it to be a rather modern city, bustling with an enormous amount of people, and driving innovation. My character, Tad, has come to Aelindra in search of a piece of prototype technology. He is resolved to stay in the town until he has taken it by any means necessary. He plans to first steal the security plans for the building that he wants to burgle, followed by burgling the building itself, and finally escaping with the prototype. Since this will be illegal activity, our characters will be actively hunted by the town guard, and unable to use any of the more regulated means of public transportation, such as crossroads, airships, etc. So long as nobody kills anyone, the risk should be pretty minimal, no risk of character death. Mild powers are required for this thread, preferably the lower end of mild powers to keep things interesting. Magitech is more than welcome. Since I will be posting on a regular basis, and anyone can join at any part of the adventure, anyone who shows up will be part of my characters premeditated plan. This is just to help gloss over any awkward timings and introductions, that way we can keep the story flowing. Nothing like joining in the middle of fleeing the town guard to make things awkward/difficult to write. If you need or want to leave, feel free to write yourself out, anybody who doesn't return will be assumed to have contributed their part to the plan and have returned to whatever they were doing before. Again, this is just to keep things flowing. I'm not a fan of when threads start to stagnate as you wait on one person who might have another obligation or doesn't have time to post for a while. Genre: Mid-Fantasy/Magitech. Location: Aelindra, Genesaris. Idea: Stealing a prototype from a heavily guarded building. FAQs: None yet. Feel free to post any questions, as I am sure I have missed some detail or made something unclear, or jump on into the thread. Constructive criticism is always welcome.
  23. The Red Festival The small city of Tormo has been raided of all its gold and valuables. It’s people dragged into the night by a goblin horde lead by mysterious and powerful evil figures. Tormo itself nearly being burned to the ground with very few survivors of this horrific event. Roughly two weeks have passed since the villainous event, and shortly there after small bands of goblins have spread to into the countryside bearing invitations. Envelopes stained with drops of crimson blood. All of them giving the message of an event called The Red Festival written in both common and under-common. ”Demi-Humans, Monsters, mobs,thieves, murderers, all those who have been cast down into the dregs of pecking order just because you weren’t born with smooth skin, or without horns, or that you’ve always been a little different. You are not alone, my children. You are not scum or trash, you are simply a product of your environment. One that was crafted to keep you down. The moment these beautiful smooth skinned and self righteous son’s of bitches showed up and said they get to be humans and elves and in charge, and you get to be mobs and Demi-human (and that’s the nice name they call you) that was it, your fate was sealed. But fear not, for you and your tribes and people are invited to the Red Festival. A place where everyone can be themselves. There will be free food and drink to feast upon, and there will be entertainment and gold to be given out to the rightful people of Terrenus. We can’t wait to have you there. - D What is the Red Festival? The Red Festival is the New Legion of Doom thread for the Terrenus community following the sacking of Tormo aka Fright Night. It’s a large open party/social thread with an air of danger to it. This is due to the festival’s guests. Trolls, orcs, kobalds, goblins, etc etc. very savage monster races. This thread will consist on the members of the Legion talking, recruiting, and building their forces and creating unity between races in order to create a larger army to ultimately have their plans of burning Terrenus succeed. The Legion isn’t going away anytime soon, and will only grow stronger and stronger as they build themselves up. Am I invited? Can I crash it? All are invited to the Red Festival. From an IC standpoint the knowledge of it has spread across Terrenus. However it’s not front page news. It’s more of hushed whispers inside the taverns of even major cities in Terrenus. People gossip about it in the streets from the shadows. So people do know about it. Now I’m sure you are asking. What if my character is in the military or apart of an organization that’s against the Legion and I want to attack it with a force or army? That is perfectly acceptable. Though you should certainly put serious thought into it before you do. We at the Legion love organic story telling and are happy to face whatever is thrown at us. So Revenge or do gooding is your game. It’s all cool with us. Festival Rules 1: Humans and other races are allowed safe passage into the festival and can participate. 2: Murder is allowed only in honorable blood duels or in self defense of a life or death situation. 3: If you are caught murdering outside rule two, you will be drawn, quartered, hung, and then eaten. 4: Have fun and socialize. Details & Info This thread will be going live Thursday in the evening that way people have all of Friday to formulate a post for the weekend or whenever they have time to jump in! We welcome everyone to join and we want to have a great time! live thread
  24. Battle of Last Chance Introducing for all of you haven’t heard of the us. Legion, aka The Legion of Doom!! So a month or so ago I dropped a thread that said “I am here to burn your world.” Now when I say something, I mean it. SO! Allow me to drop Legion’s first macro level thread. The sacking and burning of Last Chance. We here at Legion have decided for our first foray into the larger parts of the game is to be a raid. Rather than the large and intense three part invasion to take the city, which lets be honest. Sounds exhausting. We want to deliver a more intimate and character driven thread than the large scale chess and tactics game that detracts from a good story. We want to keep our focus on the characters rather than the battle itself. How will this work? The thread itself will have various objectives and storylines laid out for people to join or to simply do their own thing. All of which will be laid out in the official OOC thread when it drops this weekend. All characters are encouraged to join an objective and work together to weave a story that will not only be a great read, but will allow yourself and your opponents to have fun. While you can go off and do your own thing around the battlefield, we do recommend working with your fellow writer. Also anyone is allowed to join. You don’t need to a part of the factions who are fighting. Combat & Troop Movements So as far as macro level troop maneuvering goes, all of that will be background noise which will be decided by faction leadership. This is to provide everyone with a fluid sense of a shifting battlefield and setting from an official source rather than five different guys with thousands of troops between them all doing different things. We want to provide a very seamless and cinematic experience when it comes to the macro combat for the thread. Characters will be allowed to command two squads of NPCs each for flavor and fun. Rules 1: Wheaton’s Law aka don’t be a dick 2: Treat your opponent with respect 3: All OOC squabbles need to be settled via a pm. Don’t drag your drama to the OOC thread 4: If an agreement can not be reached then faction leadership will decide. 5: If faction leadership can’t reach an agreement then and ONLY then will site staff will be involved. These people have better things to do than deal with our disputes. 6: No writing damage, character death, or mass NPC death in your post as a fact without the express permission and consent of the other writer 7: Doing a power move that can violate the Mild Powers ceilings is fine. We all love a dramatic moment. But doing so needs to come at a cost. Losing all your strength, injury, death of comrades, etc etc. pay to play baby. 8: All are welcome to partake 9: Really, just please don’t be a dick. Details We will be dropping all the official OOC thread this weekend and possibly the actual thread as well. Faction leadership will be working together to create the best experience for everyone.
