Veluriyam Canonization Guidelines

Hello, friend. Do you want to carve your mark on the history of this growing empire? Your deeds written out in our lore? Build a city? Discover a new species? Assassinate a governor? Unearth a buried alien civilization?

You’ve come to the right place.

The Veluriyam Empire board follows the Valucre Guide to Canonization, with some modifications.

Requirements for Canonization
  1. Posts in the thread should be no less than 80 words
  2. The last post of the thread should include a thread summary containing the following:

    Full summary: A full summary (1-3 paragraphs) must include all important details. Anything not included in the full summary is not considered approved.

    Minor summary: A minor summary (2-5 sentences). This is what will be included in the Timeline articles. The board leaders may edit these in the Timeline forfor brevity and clarity.

    Consequences and Opportunities:  A list of the consequences of your thread, or the changes caused by the events of the thread. Include at least one opportunity so everyone who contributes gives others a chance to contribute as well.

    Examples: Digging to China and Not just area, but distance


After completing a thread for canonization, send a PM to @Csl and @danzilla3 with a link to the completed thread.

Note that canonization requests may be rejected for a variety of reasons listed in the Guide to Canonization. It’s best to consult with the board leaders (especially Csl) when planning to introduce dramatic changes in Veluriyam lore, either through PM or the Veluriyam Empire AMA

Backdating

In some cases, backdating a thread may be necessary. Threads are listed on the Veluriyam Timeline according to the date they were first created, regardless of how long they take to complete. A backdated thread takes place earlier in the timeline than the OOC thread start date.

Backdating is allowed if:

  • It has been discussed and approved with the board leaders.
  • It does not impact other users’ lore/threads without their permission and creates no inconsistencies in canon.
  • It does not provide anyone an unfair IC advantage for other threads.

Include the date you wish to backdate your thread to in the canonization post.

What threads can be canonized?

Any thread that has an impact on existing Veluriyam lore can be canonized.

To quote the Guide to Canonization:

Examples of actions that you can canonize:

  • Completed quests. This is the most common method of canonization. When completing quests, you must still generate an an RP opportunity for other members.
  • Assassination of a canonically significant figure, which would require board leader approval and likely canon defense.
  • Destroying, rebuilding or renovating an established business or organization.
  • Amassing an army, making preparations for war, or other large-scale actions that would reasonably draw attention and likely canon defense. 

Examples of actions that you don't need to canonize:

  • Most slice of life type threads with no impact on lore outside the thread
  • Assassination of an important figure in a personal plot (i.e. your character's mother where the mother is not a governor, etc)
  • Your character's death (unless your character is an important figure).
  • Destroying a ready-made (NPC made and destroyed at players discretion) town or village. 

Feel free to post any questions or concerns in the Veluriyam Empire AMA
