  1. This Lore has been denied. Self denied. Topic moved to Denied Lore forum.
  2. It would theoretically be reviewed along with all of the other lore that must either be submitted or face actual shelving.
  3. Y'all can stop using shelf as a buzzword to incite outrage over such a minor issue that is being addressed to bring it up to standards. I’m very sorry that Jandys submission wasn’t addressed in a time frame you find acceptable. But the fact of the matter is that Braduk break the racial lore for Orcs without having an accepted lore piece of their own to justify it. Height/weight issues are things we deal with daily in the other player bases, but Braduks have been able to skate by with no flags thrown at them. Their lore isn’t being messed with at all. To being Braduks in-line with the current standards all they need to do is make a lore submission following the new criteria that essentially outlines their history, origins and provide redlines for the bloodlines. If they don’t want to do that, then they can pick from the options outlined in the initial post.
  4. The reason this was brought forward in the first place was as a result of a conversation I had in the main orc chat (Yes, with actual Orcs. Not a bunch of randos), in which very little was offered up on the side of the Braduks being allowed to continue as is. The issue you raise here is one of the main reasons the Lore Games are being held in the first place. A formal lore piece with quantified, hard redlines is needed and to be publicly posted. In writing this post I looked around the forums for information on the Braduks and I was unable to find this information in any capacity, let alone formal lore capacity. I cannot really speak to the concerns you raise as to the direction and drive of the team without Delmo as I was only brought onto the team rather recently. However, I think what you link in the google doc is a step in the right direction in terms of the new criteria. It’s my personal opinion that despite the lore you link being good, if people wish to continue playing Braduk to their full extent as you outline then it should be submitted alongside your own as a separate lore piece that officially details the history, origins, etc. of the Braduk bloodline to ensure that no aspects of the bloodline are overlooked or cut short.
  5. Regarding the Braduk Bloodline The status of the Braduk Bloodline has been a source of contention for quite some time now. What is considered acceptable roleplay for those from this bloodline has changed over the months, and even years. The Braduk bloodline in its current state is a thinly veiled attempt to min-max a character by allowing them to have (near-)Olog level strength without having to RP the decreased intelligence and primal nature an Olog possesses. In attempts to bring this lore up to date, it has been decided that the Olog influence on this bloodline must be retroactively shelved until a formal lore submission for the bloodline following the new lore criteria is accepted. Any existing bloodline Braduk characters must either submit a valid Creature Application and roleplay the full standard effects of an Olog, or modify their character and roleplay within the standard constraints of the Orcish physique and intelligence. Anybody who wishes to create a new bloodline Braduk must adhere to these options as well; Olog Creature Application, or Standard Orc physique and intelligence. We are keeping it so that half-ologs do not require CAs for the time being as outside the Braduk line we have not received any reports regarding them. However, it cannot be stressed enough that if you roleplay any of the positive attributes of an Olog in your half-olog, you MUST roleplay all of the negative attributes of an Olog. Full Ologs will still require a creature application though, which can be found here.

  7. I’m not gonna sit here and argue, especially with you Flam as I have absolutely no issues with you and I think you provide some good insight on the various situations, but I will say just one thing. I do not feel that my screenshots regarding the aftermath of the Siege were taken that out of context. Not to throw shade at him, but at that time of the Warclaim I felt like Fireheart was not particularly active. Pun already seemed to be the one calling the shots within the moderation team. So when she swoops in right after and seems to state there will be no redo, that’s what you then think is going to happen. Now granted she should not have had to worry about a staff leak, and shame on Joel, but my perception of the situation was that she was making a call and that she did so hastily and without real authority.

  10. Krug-Urguan Peace Accord of 1725 The great questions of our days will not be settled by means of speeches and voting, but by steel and blood. Both parties have met steel with steel and shed the blood of one another. This has not been the first time, nor will it likely be the last. However, for every battle where their swords and shields clash against the others, there has been a battle where they have stood side by side against the greater threat. As such, both parties agree to bring a white peace to their nations, in the hope of protecting their people from senseless bloodshed. The Terms, agreed upon by both signatories, are as follows: The Rexdom of Krugmar and the Under-Realm of Urguan do hereby agree to cease all hostilities, of either a physical or political nature, between them. Both parties agree to a strict pact of mutual non-aggression between them, refusing any and all calls of war against each other. Both parties recognize each other as the sole bastion of their people, Dwedmar and of Krugs Blood respectively, and as such agree to these terms for the mutual benefit of their people. The pact shall last until either signatory is no longer in power, at which time the successors of either signatory may choose to resign this pact within 2 Cactus weeks. Signed, REX, Hargurr'Gorkil, Farseer and Lutauman of the Iron Uzg, Devotee to the Spirits, Elder of Clan Gorkil, Protector of Krugmar and of Clans Gorkil, Lak, Yar, Lur, Shrogo, Weaagh and Gurmazg, Warden of Orcs, Goblins, Ologs and all followers of Krug. His Royal Majesty, Atandt Irongrinder, Under-King of the Under-Realm of Urguan, Grand King of the Grand Kingdom of Urguan, King of Agnarum, Kaz’Ulrah, Az’adar, and Ord, Lord of Kal’Varoth, Kal’Azgaryum, Kal’Omith, Kal’Nikaer, Kal’Akash, Kal’Karaad, Kal’Agnar, Kal’Klad, Kal’Arkon, Kal’Ithrun, Kal’Azgoth, Kal’Karik, and Kal’Urguan, Jarl of Avar, Defender of the Dwedmar, Beloved of the Brathmordakin, Elder of Clan Irongrinder, Longbeard of Grand Legion, etcetc.

    The Response

    The more I see happen under these new conflict rules, and the more I think about it, I struggle to see how these rules promote dynamic RP. Yes, super nice that the various staff teams will provide what support they can to allow for interesting conflict. But that is derailed by the fact that these new rules PROMOTE OOC AGREEMENTS AND SCHEMING. At least with the disaster that was the unfinished rules Joel was forced to push through you had to have some semblance of RP; Valid CBs, appropriate war goals, etc. Were OOC agreements and schemes still happening? Yes, but they were a bi-product of the players attitudes and not a result of the system itself. By encouraging people to engage in “good faith conversations” about wars this new system actively encourages people to bring OOC into RP, and shows utter disregard for the fact that war is not an even playing field.
  13. A Call to the Faithful Rex Hargurr’Gorkil, looking badass as always. *The below notice has been pinned to any notice board within Krugmar, The Pax Orenia, or city with lax gate policies.* By Decree of the Rex, Hargurr’Gorkil, All who follow in the path of the Spirits shall be welcome in Krugmar. They shall suffer no harassment or enslavement as long as they prove and hold true to their faith in the Spirits. Should one find their knowledge of the Spirits lacking, they may be re-educated in what it means to follow the Spirits provided one of their kin is willing to vouch for them. Krugmar shall protect those who seeks its shelter from whatever whips and chains may chase them with the utmost fervor. We must stand together in unity, as devout followers of the Spirits, to ensure that their will is done upon this mortal plane of ours. We are stronger together than we are apart, separated by mortal customs and boundaries. I implore all who wish to ensure the mutual survival of our like minded people to come to Krugmar and seek refuge in her walls.
