    Will this apply to the creation of wards as well?

    [MArt] Tools of the Soulseeker

    Name of Artifact: Soulseeker’s Eyes http://i.imgur.com/lsvQGpY.jpg MC Name of person(s) currently in possession of Artifact: JCQuiinn RP Name of person(s) currently in possession of Artifact: Selina Demones MC Name of creator(s) of Artifact (N/A if not applicable): JCQuiinn, Scarlet_Sage_Rav RP Name of creator(s) of Artifact (N/A if not applicable): Selina Demones, Ravondir Effect(s) of Artifact: Allows the user to examine the structure of a soul and record its appearance by etching the vision of the soul to a lens. The artifact has four lenses already installed and a new one can be installed with a few minutes time. The creation of additional lenses is a relatively simple ritual. Red Lines of Artifact: Can only be used on a subdued or willing target. The usage of the lens requires several minutes of tuning in order to get a clear image, and cannot be used on a target that is not strapped down, unconscious, or willingly submitting to an examination. While it is possible to determine extreme modifications to a soul caused by unholy magics or deific influence, it is not readily apparent what these changes cause. It cannot be used to identify the dark nature of an individual at a glance, and while close examination might reveal a being’s true nature, a normal soulfire test would work just as well and more quickly regardless. The glasses only allow an individual to see and examine a soul, comprehension of what the viewer is witnessing requires considerable study of numerous subjects, similar to examining the inside of a human body. Explanation of effect(s) (i.e. how it does what it does - slight bending of magic lore is allowed): The glasses act as a blend of ruinous, rapturous, and lunar Ascended infusions. The Soulseeker’s eyes are activated by a continuous trickle of soulfire from the user which acts to stir the soulfire sitting within each lens. For each use the mixture of rapturous to ruinous soulfire and level of agitation must be adjusted until the subject’s soul fully comes into focus. Before this the soul would appear as nothing more than a hazy, featureless blob. Once the subject is brought into focus the image of the soul can be captured on one of the lenses with a brief burst a flame, etching the image on the glass. This image would form a clear distortion when soulfire is once again passed through the lens at a later time, slowly forming the image of the soul in question.

If so, link the app: N/A Name of Artifact: SoulSeeker’s Blades MC Name of person(s) currently in possession of Artifact: JCQuiinn RP Name of person(s) currently in possession of Artifact: Selina Demones MC Name of creator(s) of Artifact (N/A if not applicable): JCQuiinn, Scarlet_Sage_Rav RP Name of creator(s) of Artifact (N/A if not applicable): Selina Demones, Ravondir Effect(s) of Artifact: The Soulseeker’s Blades are a collection of surgical implements that allow for much more precise application of soulfire, both ruinous and rapturous. To someone who is able to ‘see’ a soul it allows an individual to dissect the unnatural parts of a soul, slowly unravelling an individual’s essence until they eventually expire. Red Lines of Artifact: Due to their delicate nature the tools cannot be used to kill an aggressive foe. They can be used to dispatch someone who is subdued or unconscious. The tools need to be recharged after each use due to the heavily refined nature of the infusion. While the tools would be able to assist in examining an unaltered soul, they would be unable to do any damage to an untainted individual (they could still be used to physically cut someone, of course). The tools are nearly useless without some method of perceiving the shape of an individual’s soul (such as the SoulSeeker’s Eyes) and useage would be akin to a blindfolded surgeon flailing his scalpel wildly. The tools are not able to permanently remove any sort of unnatural soul modification that could not normally be removed by regular soulfire. Due to the invasive nature of most dark magics any significant removal of tainted soul essence will result in the subject expiring. Explanation of effect(s) (i.e. how it does what it does - slight bending of magic lore is allowed): The SoulSeeker’s Blades are essentially a collection of other, common Ascended infusions refined to a point of absolute precision.The many knives include both rapturous and ruinous soulfire infusions in various degrees of strength and precision.. Among the collection of surgical implements are a few lunar infused items as well, for usage in moving and examining the unaltered portions of the soul.

In essence it acts similar to standard rapturous soulfire, without the weakening of the body or rendering the subject unconscious. Red Lines of Artifact: Can only be secured to the neck of an unconscious, subdued, or willing victim. Needs to be recharged after each use. The collar can be removed via physical means with some time and difficulty. This does not mean it can be ripped off with ease in the heat of action, but can instead be removed after a few minutes of struggle. Cannot be used for long-term storage. A charge will typically last for a single duration of interrogation(one session of RP). Explanation of effect(s) (i.e. how it does what it does - slight bending of magic lore is allowed): The collar is tuned in such a way that it is able to detect the minute fluctuations of unholy energies that normally indicate the casting of spells. When such energy is detected it releases some of its internally held rapturous flame and essentially ‘counteracts’ the casting. While acting in such a capacity, however, it does not physically weaken the target or render them unconscious as typical rapturous soulfire would do. The item is activated and locked by pressing a hand against the Ideogram and channeling a spark of soulfire into it. The collar is likewise deactivated with such a spark, or can be removed with a little time and effort.

  13. Currently bans work in one of two ways on the server. In the first, a player makes a player report detailing a grievance against another player. All parties involved are allowed to set out their evidence, are encouraged to settle the issue outside of the report process if possible, and then a GM resolves the issue and doles out the judgement. So far so good. The second method is where a player is caught in the act, or after the act, by a GM, and promptly banned. I've no issue with that as it stands. Now, oftentimes these bans come with no appeal stipulations. For example, if I was banned for a month I may be told I may not appeal until that month is up, or if I was banned for a week I may be told it will automatically be dismissed in the week and there is no appeal process. In example one, where I have been able to argue my point publicly and present all of my evidence, and most importantly converse with the wronged party I have, in a way, already 'appealed' the report against me and it has been found to have merit. Unfortunately, in the second instance, where a GM has banned me without having a report posted against me, it is quite likely that I will have no option or ability to argue my defense. Even then it will be in a much less formal setting that'll likely involve personal messages where it is much more easily to be ignored. So, ultimately what I am requesting is that when someone is banned directly by a GM instead of through a report they should be able to appeal the action immediately, and only afterwards if the charges stick can they be denied the ability to appeal. tl;dr: People who are banned directly by a GM instead of by having a report filed against them are often never allowed the chance to argue their case, and are often not allowed to appeal the ban until the ban is up. This is B.S. and people should be able to argue their side, either through the player report filed against them or through an appeal before any sort of no-appeal ban is applied.
