  1. Holy Sir David shook his head. "This is it. I now hate all art. This has ruined art for me. Good job."
  2. Holy Sir David's ears perked up as his aide-de-camp read him the missive before his morning constitutional. "A dark beast attacking Canonists? I shall message the Lord Marshal and Knight Paramount myself to see if they wish the Order to join them."
  3. In Defense of the Faithful A Call to Arms In truth, I never saw myself as a knight. I was just a soldier, one of many in the shield wall, content. And yet GOD has a way of guiding you on a path you never expected or even thought you wanted, and making you realize that he had placed you on this path since the moment of your birth. My name is David Invitus. That is, David the Reluctant, for I pushed against GOD this entire journey up until the moment I was anointed with holy oil and felt His presence as I swore the oaths of knighthood. Now, I am Grandmaster of the Holy Order of Saint Nicolas the Martyr, wholly devoted to Him and His faithful. I urge you, brothers and sisters of the faith, to ask yourselves if you feel His call to holy knighthood as well. There is evil in this world, spawned from Iblees, spawned from Daemons, and spawned from the hearts of men. Where there is evil, there lies a hatred for the GOD and His faithful. We stand as a bulwark against the darkness, a sword against evil. Where we go, the Canonist need not fear danger or persecution. Where we tread, evil cowers in the shadows. Raised against the forces of Iblees, our holy light purges the wicked. The Host of Light serves a greater calling that transcends all temporal. We walk into a valley for which there is no path, yet we know that our fellow soldiers stand by us as brothers, emboldened by the Wrath and Justice of GOD. If we falter, our shields will turn to ash, but we shall not falter. And so now I call upon you, members of the faithful. Rise up and listen to the words GOD bestows on you. For many, you will be called to serve family, kingdom, or creed. But for those who know that GOD calls you to serve as His sword and shield, I call upon you to come to the Holy Order and swear the Oratio Fidelis with us. You are already our brothers and sisters in faith; become our brothers and sisters in arms. LUX IN TENEBRIS LUCET ET TENEBRAE EAM NON COMPREHENDERUNT OOC INFORMATION
  4. THE AURUM CODE OF THE HOLY ORDER OF SAINT NICOLAS THE MARTYR THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND HE ALONE IS WORTHY OF WORSHIP. A BROTHER BESTOWS HIS SPIRITUAL ALLEGIANCE ONLY TO HIM. THE HIGH PONTIFF OF THE CHURCH OF THE CANON IS THE VICAR OF GOD, HIS VOICE ON EARTH. A BROTHER BESTOWS HIS TEMPORAL ALLEGIANCE ONLY TO HIM. A BROTHER WILL STAY IN COMMUNION WITH GOD AND THE CHURCH. HE WILL RECEIVE THE RITE OF ABLUTION AT LEAST ONCE PER YEAR. A BROTHER WILL NEVER EVADE ECCLESIASTICAL AUTHORITY, FOR IT COMES FROM GOD. A BROTHER WILL NOT SEEK FOR HIMSELF OR FOR MATERIAL GAIN, FOR HE IS A SERVANT OF GOD. A BROTHER SHALL GUARD THE HONOR OF THEIR FELLOWS, FOR ONE CANNOT FALL IF OTHERS SUPPORT HIM. A BROTHER HAS NO COMPASSION OR MERCY FOR SIN, BUT REMEMBERS THAT GOD IS COMPASSIONATE AND MERCIFUL TO THE PENITENT SINNER. A BROTHER WILL FIRST SEEK THE REDEMPTION OF OTHERS, FOR THE PAIN OF PENANCE IS NOTHING COMPARED TO THE PAIN OF THE VOID. A BROTHER SHALL ALWAYS SPEAK THE TRUTH, FOR IT WAS IBLEES THAT TAUGHT MAN DECEIT. A BROTHER WILL NOT RETREAT FROM THE SPAWN OF IBLEES UNLESS TO SAVE ANOTHER, FOR THE LIGHT BANISHES THE DARKNESS.
  5. This appeal has been claimed. You will hear back from us in three lines of blank text. Your appeal has been denied for: 1) Posting in the wrong sub-forum 2) Not using the correct appeal format 3) Being from Louisiana
  6. I, for one, tend to appreciate a good bourbon.
  7. Holy Sir David Invitus looked to the Nicolite sister who bent was bent over the High Pontiff, checking for a heart beat through the horn she had pressed to her ear. There was silence in the room, and all was still. Finally, the sister shook her head and David gritted his teeth. "Mortuus est Papem," he said softly, a tear rolling down his cheek. David had always been the reluctant soldier, but Tylos II had truly shown him his path. He would miss him.
  8. Nothing is stopping the parties from choosing PvP if they both want.
  9. The rules are not arbitrary. In each instance, the rules were designed in line with the portion of our mission statement which was about giving players the tools they needed so they wouldn't need to call for a staff ruling as often. As to your worry about keeping track of things, I don't fully get how this is more difficult for you. You already had to keep track of distance. Now you still do. The only thing you have to track is ten minutes, which is there to make sure you don't feel too rushed when making your emotes for fear of incoming reinforcements. And there is no character text limit. You just can't have your character recite Shakespearean soliloquies during a single sword swing. There is no emote length restriction. The restriction is on how much your character can speak during a single action. Is this a common thing? I've never fallen any number of blocks in a CRP before. Again, this is designed so that players do not have to always call for staff intervention. "Burnsider, this guy just fell like 6 blocks. He says he can parkour it but that sounds like powergaming." Well, now you don't have to have an arbitrary mod ruling. When CRP default was first established, everyone complained that it would grind all combat to a halt specifically because there were no specific rules and mod intervention would be regularly needed. In response to this overwhelming feedback, rules were established to prevent that. Yes. That's a good thing. Not just for staff, but for players.
  10. What? It's literally the opposite. We are already dealing with people delaying to get reinforcements. Now, if they do so, they don't get rewarded for it. Whereas in the new ruleset, the reinforcements are not slowed down by emoting because they are not yet in CRP. They either make it in ten minutes or not. If the do, it doesn't matter if the person was delaying or not, they still can join. If they don't, it doesn't matter if the person was delaying or not, they still can't join. Yes, that's the point. Now people don't have to race through typing and do shit emotes just to ensure that they can get away before reinforcements inevitably show up. And if there's no cap, they will eventually show up.
  11. I'm having fun.

  12. That is actually the whole point. Most fights in real life last less than a minute. Most cinematic fights last less than three minutes. Why should someone be able to join a combat 30 minutes after it began when the fight would have been over for 27-29 minutes if it happened in real time?
  13. That is correct math, but given that is more than double the normal cooldown, I don't know how you can call it "only" a 7-day cooldown.
  14. Yes, but larger raids have longer cooldowns.
