  7. As the letter is delivered to to Johan Cardinal Aquila he’d take a seat before a fireplace in the Vuillerian keep reading it over. He’d read it over more than twice before looking up from it staring into the fire for a while in thought. Time would quickly go by as he sat deep in though only escaping from it as he would hear the sound of his children running into the room. “What are you reading papa?” His youngest daughter would say “oh nothing of importance dear, I just have to decide on my vote for something” he’d smile at the both of them lifting them up on his lap finding a book to read for them. “Have you ever heard the stories of Foltest of Aeldin?” As the sun would go down outside Johan and two of his children would sit there in front of the fire as the stories went on and on.

  9. Yerug'Yar, would read the missive from his hermit cave in a place far away, chuckling. "Bah! Here they go again... Stupid infightingz... Let 'em all burn! Sepparated they are easy prey."
  10. The section you’ve quoted is written with specific diction to make clear that the trait is a completely optional part of Azdrazi roleplay. There is no reward gleaned from combat, thus no incentive.
  11. Alfred Cardinal Jorenus reviews the thesis and nods to himself. He then extends an invitation to the young acolyte to meet him in the Chapel of Reza at any time to discuss his further training.
  12. The Divinity Of Man On the problem of God’s chosen people As was told in the Scroll of the Gospel, God, in His infinite wisdom, chose from the sons of the first man a prophet. The prophet he chose to receive His word, the first of The Holy Scrolls, The Scroll of Virtue, was Exalted Horen. To the layman it may appear that God’s choice of humanity over the other descendants was an arbitrary one, unfair to the other races. However, as we know God is a just and benevolent Lord, we know His decisions are never arbitrary. It is not, in fact, God who chose Horen over his brothers, but Horen who chose God over worldly wealth. It was not Horen’s inherent supremacy that made him the first Exalted, but in fact his devotion to the Lord which prompted God to bestow upon him His eternal favor. To understand the origin of man’s place in God’s plan one must turn to the Gospel and understand the birth of our forefathers, of Horen, of Malin, of Krug, of Urguan. These four ancestors, the origin of we descendents, spread through the world with their people, and each chose that which they valued the most. Malin into the forest, to care for the creatures of the land. Urguan into the mountains, to gather the precious metals from the heart of the world. Krug into the desert, to hunt and find the strength superior to all foes. Horen into the plains and forests, to worship God and fulfill His word. This is the origin of our places in the world, of humans, elves, dwarves, and orcs. Our ancestors, valued equally in the eyes of God, chose that which they valued the most. Only one of them, however, chose to value God above all else, and that was Horen. It is from these choices we find our purposes today as the descendants of these four brothers. God informed us that “As Horen and Owyn, as all men, you suffer the sins of your father and your mother:” (Gospel 7:28). So, by God’s very own words, the reason humanity is favored to be the prophets of God is because our fathers chose God over this world, where the fathers of elves, dwarves, and orcs chose this world over God. Bear in mind, humanity does indeed carry with them the blessing of God as passed down to them by their forefather Horen, this is without dispute. This is why of all God’s prophets, all have come from the line of Horen, the line of humanity. This blessing does come with a price, however. As humans we are expected to spread the love of God to the other descendents, we are tasked to follow in the footsteps of Exalted Horen, Owyn, Godfrey, and Sigismund. This is due to our forefathers’ promise that we shall remain dutiful and faithful to His word and His plan. In this regard the word of God does not promote human supremacy, but the supremacy of His virtuous and righteous followers. There is only one supreme, and that is the Lord himself, and by this fact no man can be supreme but through Him. A non believer may rebut with a passage from the book of Godfrey; “And Godfrey set aside the Throne of Man for a holy purpose, consecrating it to GOD. Thus it was sworn that no Son of Malin, of Urguan, of Krug, or any magi shall hold it.” (Gospel 6:36-37). The answer to this is rather straightforward. As discussed prior, the sons of Malin, Urguan, and Krug chose for themselves false gods at the behest of Iblees. It is for this simple reason no non-human may rule over man, those that worship the servants of Iblees can not sit on the throne that was consecrated and dedicated to God. Furthermore, one should not become overly prideful in their status as the bearers of God’s word. This very mistake was made by Exalted Godfrey himself, in proclaiming the supremacy of humankind over the other descendent races. “So the Lord saw that Godfrey went into strange lands. 17 He spoke the word of God, which was good. 18 But he also spoke of man’s perfection, and the foreigner was made to grovel before man in worship. 19 The world lived in terror of the Lord, and not in love.” (Gospel 7:16-19). As one can read, directly from the Holy Scrolls themselves, humanity is not to be made supreme over all of the races. Godfrey was in fact chastised by God for this very display of pride. Therefore, one must take great heed not to become prideful of their own place in this world, after all we are all but mere servants to the Almighty. It is without a doubt our divine duty to rise to the expectations God has placed for the greatest among us, the Exalted, but in doing so we must not create a division between his people by spreading the idea of singular supremacy in the eyes of God. Rather, we must bring all descendents together under the loving gaze of our Creator. We must shine the light of God upon all other descendents so they too may feel His loving embrace. To conclude this work, the Scroll of Spirit recalls God’s mercy towards those who have been led astray. Each of the races, as well as the Magi, receive a warning not to fall victim to the Denier’s lies, but to find the Lord and worship Him. Therefore it is not supremacy over the descendents God has given to we humans, but the burden to bright salvation to them, to show them the lies of their false gods and guide them to the love of the one true God. I implore you, dear reader, do not be swept up in ideas of your own divine superiority, as this is not the will of God. Instead, turn inward and find yourself naught but a humble servant called upon to do your duty as a follower of God’s divine word. I reiterate, there is none as supreme as the Lord your God, do not fall victim to your own pride, that is the will of the Denier and his minions. Humble yourself before God and spread his word to your fellow creations, this is your duty as a descendent of Horen, the first descendent to receive the word of God at Gamesh. The opening up of the self to the Horenic virtues bonds together the divnity of God's salvation and the fulfillment of creation. Amen.

  14. Alfred Cardinal Jorenus sits in his office as a courier swiftly places the letter upon his office for him to read. The Archbishop then nods to the courier and opens the letter. He views its content carefully and ready it with great interest. He then nods slightly and looks forward to discussing and debating this topic with his fellow Cardinals.
  15. PETITION TO HIS HOLINESS JAMES II To His Holiness James II; And His Most Eminent Synod, The Commonwealth of Kaedrin prides itself as the most pious of subjects under Her Imperial Majesty, boasting multiple eras wherein the Kaedreni architected bustling dioceses and the modernization of Owynism. Our interests pertaining to the maintenance of a pious realm is interwoven with that of the Holy Canonist Church: who seeks to perpetually keep the Canonist flock in an intimate and obedient union. It is from this understanding that we regret the previous rejection of our petition to bestow upon a Kaedreni hero, Foltest of Aeldin, the divine privilege of Sainthood. With new historical developments and revitalized determination to do right by our most pious of ancestors: we henceforth wish to petition Your Holiness most humbly once more: Foltest of Aeldin, an enclosed painting Foltest of Aeldin remains an icon of faith and discipline within the Commonwealth: renowned for his grandiose successes in sieges on behalf of the Imperial Tertius, a Holy Order & as Count of Krinfrid. Defending the Canonism realm from heretical threats and the undead time and time again, willing to sacrifice his own life for that of his brethren and those dedicated to the cloth. Most famously is his defense of the Brelusian cathedral: wading through flames and heathens to save the innocent congregation from their demise, rescuing a plethora of children and clergy in the process. It is during this rescue that the Kaedreni believe a miracle had occurred: as Foltest did not get burned by the sea of flames, enabling him to escort every living soul from the Brelusian cathedral before its collapse. The Kaedreni firmly believe that the fact that Foltest did not burn to death during the rescue of the Brelusian congregation, is a sign of God’s intervention: allowing his most humble of servants to save his Flock. Sparing Foltest from sacrificing himself, as God saw function to allowing a man like him to continue living. These historical accounts prompted a reverence of Foltest: one where he is deemed as the icon of bastions & siegeworks. Much like his body resisting the engulfment of flames, his military career is riddled with occasions wherein he led successful resistance against sieges of human strongholds: while also leading sieges against heretics to its legendary successes. Foltest of Aeldin inspires centuries of Kaedreni youth to defend the faith with their lives, and to consider piety the most valued of traits. It is within our most genuine belief that celebrating and rewarding his pious life with this privilege would truly enrich our moral message to our congregations, and act as a proper homage to the continued piety and civility of the Kaedreni people. Yours Most Humbly, President Adrian O. Helvets; Governor-General Richard V. Helvets; Father Erasmus; Sister Anabel;
  16. When will we be told what to do with item tranfers? I want my RP items with me man 👀

  17. I appreciate your continued focus on the potential errors in our lore, but want to clarify that this “incentive” to engage in combat does not exist. Draconic wrath is a simple, flavor-adding trait that any Azdrazi can choose to roleplay. It is by no means an incentive to fight someone. You deciding to spare an Azdrazi because you do not want to be a jerk (which you wouldn’t be, they either attacked you or you had reason to attack them) is your own decision to make. Regardless of the merit behind it as a weakness, it is a long-standing facet of the Azdrazi toolkit and remains by popular demand from our playerbase.
  18. It feels so nostalgic to be checking a Hadley diary and giggling about the gossip and the fact my character was mentioned But I must set the record straight.... Celestine acquired a pin, you lousy freeloaders have to ask her to get you books, or get your own library cards!!!
  19. Its been a year.

  20. The problem isn’t that Azdrazi are overpowered, or that they have the wrong balance of strengths and weaknesses. The problem is you wrote a perverse incentive: Azdrazi are designed to excel in CRP, are encouraged to CRP by their ‘draconic wrath’ and their strength and firebreathing, but Azdrazi also suffer an abnormally harsh penalty for losing CRP. Let’s say you’re Bob the Azdrazi and you have an important date next elven day. You are ambushed by a group of bandits too large to realistically fight back. If dying means you can’t play your character for a week and you miss your date, are you going to be fair to the other players? You are encouraged to powergame in this scenario. Knowing LoTC, this is going to happen a lot. The 1 week timer isn’t fair to Azdrazi and it isn’t fair to the poor souls stuck CRPing with Azdrazi. If I’m fighting an Azdrazi and I don’t want to be an *******, I have to let him live so he doesn’t lose his character for a week. If an Azdrazi is fighting me he’s going to do everything in his power to keep me from killing his character. It’s just bad for RP, just scrap it and replace it with something else.
  21. Firstly, Werewolf is based. But I do want to say that given the current iteration of Azdrazi, an accepted article of lore, this rewrite caters to all of the complaints about the race. An entire week of not playing my main character would be a real pain, I would say that’s a giant weakness that cannot be underestimated or underplayed. It affects the encounters we put ourselves in, the combat situations more specifically, and effectively gives us a fear that we have to live with daily. If that is not a weakness I truly don’t know what is. If anything, this rewrite serves to prove that the Azdrazi as a whole hear the community, and are willing to change and adapt based on constructive criticism. Honestly, I am happy to stay strong asf and simply use the current lore, but this rewrite is necessary to us because we care, and not enforced by the lore team. I’d say compared to the current iteration that is accepted, the new rewrite is more than enough to appease those who disliked the current combat abilities. In a combat situation, an evocationist (with the exception of fire mages) would have a very fair chance of defeating an Azdrazi now, given the new weaknesses and some removal of certain abilities as a whole.
