Genesaris Canon and Lore Updates

Recommended Posts

Quest Rules
Created by Supernal.

  1. PM (The Hummingbird) before undertaking a quest so I can update availability
  2. Include a [quest] bracket in your thread title
  3. Each post should be no less than 100 words. If I feel you aren't even trying and rushing through posts I'll terminate the quest.
  4. You have to post at least ONCE a week
  5. If a quest goes 2 weeks or more without a post, the quest will be made available
  6. Rewards include: canonization and inclusion in the lore, IC spoils from me and ones that you can determine, post-credits (see below), and your thread will be pinned or featured in the local board until the next canon event
  7. Given the rewards, if the quest is too easily accomplished your canonization may be denied (refer to 3rd entry). Players should keep in mind that even death isn't permanent in a place like Valucre
  8. At the end of every quest, it is a requirement that you follow the Canonization Process, especially with regards to generating a new opportunity. This submission is how players reap rewards and get their activity documented

Each is a writing prompt, and is usually either in or near one of the major cities or settings. The details of the quest are open to modification and interpretation by the players or appointed GM (Game-Master). Players are free to play the quests out however they like, allowing them to express themselves as writers while directly impacting the canon.

Valjer City: 

Wolves In SheepskinRenkor, native of the Cold South and Aelyria, a foreigner, meet. Posing as husband and wife, they plan to raise a reputation to insinuate Renkor into the political structure of the South’s Valjer City. However, after a near-fatal assassination attempt, climaxed by an encounter with an ice dragon, Renkor leaves Valjer in an attempt to draw them away from a comatose Aelyria.

Slumbering ShadowsAfter 2 year Aelyria awakens. She meets a man called Forrest, and together they go on a quest for one of the deadly white wolves. Unfortunately, a combination of weather and the increasingly numerous and savage white wolves force them to fight for their lives.  They are saved only by Valerie Valmer’s arrival, but Forrest then recalls his lie; he is actually to eliminate anyone would oppose Mr. Lyles, an underground kingpin of Union city, from moving in and taking over the area’s resources and infrastructure.

In the CrossfireOne week later, Aelyria, Forrest, and Renkor meet in Valjer City. Aelyria, leaving the hostilities rising between Forrest and Renkor, meets Baily Valmer at his manor. She learns there is a bone disease killing him, and of the blind faith to te dragon god Valjer that he uses to justify a number of atrocities he commits. Renkor and Forrest, (secretly Caliben), arrive also at the manor, but a guard attacks Renkor. The attack is defused, but later, before another wolf hunt, Renkor burns down the guard’s house, murdering the wife in the process. Aelyria learns of the arson, and that the guard’s wife was pregnant. While the gulf is widened between them the wolf hunt, with a group assembled by Valerie, is successful and they kill them. When they return with the pelts, they find Valerie is severely injured by Bailey Valmer, who has kidnaped their daughter Ysgrid. In the end, after fights and assaults, Aelyria slays Baily Valmer, which turns out to be the plan of Valerie to have him slain. She says it is for the good of Valjer Ciy and banishes Aelyeria, Renkor, and Caliben from the city forever under punishment of death. Valerie now rules Valjer City. The dragon remains in the mountains, the cult of the Forgotten God onc led by Bailey may yet have survived, and the kingpin Mr. Lyles, aims to take over Valjer’s ironwood business… of which Valerie is entirely ignorant.
