Thread Canonized: To Arm, Or Not To Arm

On 12/12/2018 at 10:57 AM, Tyler said:

Summary

Hoping to open trade relations with Norkotia, Lord Grant Knight arranges a meeting with the Norkotian ambassador in Andelusia. Upon arrival, he is met by armed guards and subsequently permitted entry, where Ambassador John Kessler greets him. Duchess Abigail Karradeen is also present, as Norkotia and House Karradeen have a treaty that requires both their participation on matters of trade.

The negotiations are relatively brief, with Kessler voicing his concerns about Senaria's connection with foreign entities and whether or not any purchased arms may be passed on to them. Lord Knight convinces Kessler that this is not an issue surprisingly easily. He also assures Abigail that he sympathizes with House Karradeen's demotion at the hands of the Taen Empire, and that Senaria only desires positive relations with her house.

As a result of the successful agreement, Norkotia conducts a one-time sale of arms to Senaria, which is followed in subsequent months with the establishment of ongoing trade of fuel and processed foods, in exchange for wine, fish and fruit from Senaria. Karradeen creates a permanent trade route for this exchange, and all three sides benefit from the agreement.

 

Notable Consequences

House Senaria acquires several hundred Norkotian small-arms pieces, consisting of revolvers and rifles.

A permanent trade route is established by House Karradeen for Norkotia-Senaria trade.

Norkotia and Senaria create precedent for further diplomatic relations.

Description

Evienne Goldcourt acquires a meeting with Quinton Swan as a result of a plot by Prescot Goldcourt; to the surprise of one and the panic of the other. Swiftly, pretentious are cast and Lady Evienne bares her true motives to this potential investor, seeing as they are both Rosendite- and seeing some potential in her, Quinton agrees to invest in Evienne's venture, in a deal they both find agreeable. Still, one should be weary of getting caught in webs when making deals with Spiders.

Thread Canonized: Constructing a Stronghold

On 11/24/2018 at 2:27 PM, Ataraxy said:

Summary: Knowing that there are factions of increasing strength in Terrenus, Emperor Titus Demetrius of Taen Empire (soon to be Veluriyam Empire) sends his daughter, Imperial Princess Teresa Demetrius, to a plot of land a few miles South-West of Ponkapoag Lake with nearly 1000 Taen citizens. Over the span of three months Teresa and the citizens built up a small outpost. The outpost has been dubbed as Stronghold due to its focus on defensive mechanisms and purpose of being the empire's first line of defense against aggressive factions. As time passed a few hundred settlers trickled into Stronghold forming a small city around the outpost. It is still relatively small but is proving to be an area of reprieve for those wishing to escape the conflicts of Tia.

Artemis notices that enchantment magic relying on Wildlight magic doesn't work to it's full potential because the Taen Loci has yet to fully encompass Stronghold. Princess Teresa decides to participate in the MOBS tournament.

UPDATE: The satellite town of Stronghold is established.

Thread Canonized: Sumthing Sumthing in the Mountains / Quest for the Chainmail Bikini Armor[S-Class Artifact]

On 1/8/2019 at 7:31 PM, Thotification said:

THREAD SUMMARY

There were stories, rumors, and myths of an artifact that is supposedly hidden within Taen's mountain quadrant. The Mistress Blackhead of the Blackspear Cartel and her merry band of misfits namely: Black Sera sera, Black Khaks, Black As, Black Sansa, Black Hoe, Black Teddy, Black Nats, Black Annal, Black Mana, Black Wallnut. Also Sammy came.

Together the whole cartel explored the lush mountain forest, in search of the artifact only to be ambushed by wolves, ones mutated by the artifacts power. Their sheer size and toughness was more than enough to overwhelm the average warrior, but two scores of them? What ensued next was a savage battle, leaving grave wounds for either side. The cartel manage to fend the wolves back with the help of Mistress' power but they have lost enough. Black Khaks, Black Nats and Black Sansa all sustained deep injuries while Black Annal almost died from her wounds. 

With the wolves scampering away with tails between their legs, the cartel set up camp to tend to their wounded. True to her personality, the Mistress makes an excuse to relieve herself but instead leaves the others to scout for possible enemies ahead. Oddly enough, she encountered a lone garantah. After a long battle, the Mistress finally came out on top.

Meanwhile at the camp, the cartel agents are distressed because the Mistress has yet to return. After a brief round of bullying, Little Sammy is forced to check on the Mistress only to find her not relieving herself but was instead smoking atop a dead garantah. The Mistress then orders Sammy to call the others while gesturing to the herd of garantahs guarding the treasured artifact which is in the form of a giant armor. The herd must have been attracted to the artifact's excessive power bleeding out of the armor. Sammy then leaves the Mistress to call the others at the camp.

Meanwhile at the camp, Black Mana and Black Teddy are healing the dying Black Annal. Black Sans on the other hand finally succeeded in waking up Natasha. Sammy then returns to relay the Mistress' orders. Suspicious of Sammy, Black Sera sera and Black Teddy follows the boy back to the Mistress leaving the others cartel agents to tend for the wounded. The trio would soon discover the Mistress gone from atop the dead garantah's body. With no one to lead them, the two agents began to bicker with poor Sammy stuck between the two.

Back at camp, a stranger named Amin happens upon the cartel members and helps in healing the wounded members. With his help, all present members at camp followed his lead towards the Mistress' possible location without alerting Black Teddy and Black Sera sera.

Somewhere outside the forest was the Mistress. At the edges of the garantah herd, she was seen escaping with what seemed like a vampire. The vampire was Merc, one of Lilith's paragons and was sent to help the Mistress. However it seemed the Msitress was doing the saving as she was trying to keep the little vampire from harm while trying to survive the garantah's onslought by the skin of her teeth. In desperation she summons all her agents.

With the Mistress' call, every cartel agent in the vicinity would drop whatever they are currently doing and rush to her side. Even Amin was surprised and in fact dejected with the recent turn of events as he followed the cartel agents towards where the Mistress' is. Finally complete, the Blackspear cartel together with Sammy and Amin began the final offensive against the herd of garantah's. Well, as bait mostly while the Msitress makes the reckless charge towards the artifact. As her hands made contact with the armor, the Mistress asserts her dominance over the artifact. Cowed, the artifact succumbs to the Mistress's will, letting her wear it as her own armor.

Armed with the powerful armament, the Mistress grows to the size of the garantahs and battle ensues. Finally she subdues all remaining hostiles and revels in the power of her newly possessed weapon. With the artifact gone, the herd then returns to their true home. Left with no more threats, the group then leaves the mountain to celebrate their success. As for the warrior Amin, the cartel will forge an item for him, one of his own choosing.

 

Opportunities

1. Mutated wolves? Investigate the cause of these mutations and perhaps find a way to reverse the changes.

2. Contaminated lands? Prolonged exposure to the artifact has contaminated some of the flora and fauna of those in the jungle quadrant. Investigate if these contamination are safe for the populace.

3. Turmoil in the natural heirarchy? With most of the mutated wolves injured, the other more intelligent species of the mountain are aiming to fill the power vacuum in the mountain ecosystem. Help the wolves stabilize their position as the apex predator in the heirarchy.

 

Consequences

The Blackspear cartel  agents are riddled with severe injuries.

Amin gains a new enchanted item forged by the Mistress as reward for his assistance.

Samael becomes more manly. Also he gets reward one pet wolf from the Mistress.

With the armor gone, contamination to flora and fauna of the mountain will slowly die out. Would new species arise from this drastic change?

Thread Canonized: Holly and her Sheathes

On 1/12/2019 at 11:44 AM, Thotification said:

FULL SUMMARY:

Holiness "Holly" Sheathe, a former member of the Black Spear Cartel, returns to her mother's hometown after the cartel's unexpected dissolution. There she meets with her uncle, Folio and his son Piezo. After a round of awkward introductions, they invite Holly into their humble abode. Inside they have a rather short meal, exchange pleasantries. After their simple dinner, Holly retells stories of her past and before she could finish she broke down crying. Folio and Piezo comfort Holly and they all went to bed after that. At night, Holly goes out to smoke and is confronted by the Madame Linda Linda who was kind of stalking her. They exchange some words, mostly about Holly being part of Linda's business group. Their conversation ends and the next morning came. Over breakfast, Folio and  Pieze insist that Holly should lead them because she is the most experienced person in the house. Also because she can read and write. With no choice, Holly becomes the head of the vassal house of Sheathes.

 

NOTABLE CONSEQUENCES:

1. The vassal common house of Sheathe gains a new head- the Lady Holly Sheathe.

2. The Hildebrands would have an educated farmer as one of their vassals.

 

OPPORTUNITIES:

1. Holly Sheathe would have to adjust to this new way of life and the burdens of a leader while being wary of the Madame Linda Linda.

2. With Holly's return, there would be major changes on the farm. Using her vast experience and knowledge form touring the continent, Holly aims to modernize the farm. For that, she would need workers and someone to give her money,

3. With the sudden changes in the farming house's head, House Hildebrand might be interested in doing a visit or a courtesy call to see what the fuss is all about.

House Sheathe established as a farming house under Major Noble House Hildebrand!

NEW UPDATE

With the help of the wonderful @Csl the UM lore article has been rewritten. The lore is mostly the same and nothing has been redacted, so no worries. It's just been cleaned up, updated, and reworded so that it's easier to read. 

However, all house ranks below minor noble have been removed (no one was using them anyways) and replaced with the non-noble elite Aristocratic families. 

Note that we're still tweaking with the formatting as the map is looking super wonky.

Thread Canonized: a funeral with no tear [pluto x hildebrand]

On 1/28/2019 at 7:37 AM, SweetCyanide said:

FULL SUMMARY:

Having been absent for two years and a half, Pluto, also known as the Golden Crow, returns to Ravenel Manor after receiving a letter from a messenger bird that tells of the death of Strom Hildebrand. And, much to his surprise, the noble family and the Izora siblings welcome him with open arms. During his absence, the manor slowly hallowed and submitted to dust and dirt, along with it a family in mourning as they grieve. Because of this, Pluto plans to accompany the Hildebrands and serve in their halls once more until it seems he is no longer needed. Along with his services, he offers them his condolence as the runaway seneschal presents to them a gift; a magnificent music box made from his own molten blood. Afterwards, he is taken to his newly arranged quarters where he would rest. Though the family and the Izora siblings has not taken notice, Pluto's demeanor has changed drastically in comparison from himself two years ago—having become apathetic, and slow to empathy.
