  1. Happy new year, a week late!

  2. This 'event proposal' is my idea drop. The scale of this is unrealistic and I have no expectations that it could be achieved at its most awesome level in the current timeframe, however scale down or leave it for next year. If a team of Event people really wanted to run with this, something could be put together in time though. I believe in you. What is important in this event is reminiscence as an opportunity to invite past players back to the server, even if only for a few days, anticipating that some will convert to playing again. So the event setup is just as important as keeping players informed about what is to come, particularly in the form of a mailout to all email addresses of LotC forum accounts. @Tythus probably needs to be on board for that to happen. Hence the intentional tie in to this time of year as distanced past players won't mind so much being invited to take a look at LotC again if its a festive celebration of our past. 12 Days of Christmas The concept is super simple. Every day there is something new to take a look at. Its like an LotC advent calendar. The IG setup is the sudden appearance of a mushroom house which has little inside it but many locked doors that appear not to lead anywhere. 12 to be precise. And at a designated time each day one of the doors closes and another opens, revealing a portal traversing space and time. Each day players can come and travel through that day's portal to a multiverse location. Some suggestions for destination will come later. An explanation is not entirely neccessary, though in this community it it usually sought after. So I'll happily get specific using someone that I know well, Elindor The Volatile. However a wizard from another realm altogether could be used instead, as Rasmot was introduced all that time ago. Seen as a return for me is at about 1% likelihood, this is a good opportunity for me to explain away what's happenned. Elindor dissappeared some time ago to traverse through time and space to another moment in the Universe which he believes requires him. Note: I have been playing Elindor as wholly believing himself to have travelled forwards through time previously, but in a manner as to call into question his grip upon reality. If LT decide that there is no way ever for someone to move through time, that's cool. [Stole this pic from an amazing artist on pinterest. I have no regrets] ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Once a scholar, teacher, winemaker; a master of minds continued to press upon the boundaries of magical possibility, ever challenging the Void to rend his form assunder in an effort to overcome Time. Thrusting himself through centuries in an instant, the highly fortified mind of Elindor began to fragment. The wizard clung to memories with vivacious desperation in a bid to claw back his identity. His hermitage abode progressively reflected the intentional compartmentalising of his own consciousness, housing little more than bookshelves and doors. Until his will could withhold no longer and he abandoned his home to once again become a philosophical wanderer. Inexplicably the mushroom hideaway appeared out of the Void without any trace of its inhabitant. A sign hung upon the door reading "Merry Krugmas". ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Twelve Doors Each door contains a portal that leads to a location within 'memory'. These can be memories of past and future, as the timeline Elindor was last in may be centuries in the distance. So not every area would need to be from a past map, but obviously having many of them honouring the past of LotC creates a warm nostalgic vibe. Perhaps the last door could be a snapshot of a future realm...? Whether the portal is transporting travellers across realms (and through time) to a past location, or if the area has just been created like a vivid memory is not fully explainable. But every area is absent of the original inhabitants. It might be interesting to throw in an event creature or dragon here or there too. But mostly the intention would be to copy memorable areas from old maps and allow our players to explore them once again (or for the first time). The area sizes should be limited so as not to ditract too much from the server's normal roleplay. In terms of locations, AlKhazar in Aegis was very important to Elindor's emotional past. Aside from that I really don't mind where the other doors go. Practically just use whatever maps there is easy access to old backup files for.
  3. [✓] Manite, Void Gems, and The Galvanized - An Expansion of Hollows

    Do you have a separate explanation for the previous Hollows that created random structures and entities by telepathically reading those who entered its presence? Is there a situation in which this happens, rather than the Hollows which you have detailed? They were typically from Nodes upon which Mages had established themselves so it could have something to do with the tampering of the energies put out by the Node prior to it resulting in a Hollows.
  4. I like having side writing projects. Coming back to an unfinished sentence that reads "The darkness within quickly grew impenetrable". Story of my life! #JK #notdepressed

  5. This is how i imagine you

    1. Kinslayer

      Kinslayer

      no this fits better:

       

  6. @Kinslayer was in some RP on Saturday afternoon when he shared the excitement for LotC that the server was no longer blacklisted. He immediately took a screenshot of his servers page to share it on the forums. Shortly thereafter he reported in LOOC that he had been banned on the forums which was quite the surprise and he didn't know why. Soon he disappeared in front of our eyes with a 1 month ban. The reason for his ban is 10 warning points on the forums. Which is fine and part of the rules. The grey area exists in the ability for players to appeal warning points that is not widely known and, if you had a history of intentionally or unintentionally violating forum rules, could save you from an unexpected and rather long temporary ban. I don't know the details of the previous warning points or the time that they have been attached to Kinslayer's profile; and I can preempt that the official argument would be that the player should have appealed themselves if they were worried, however I know from what I have seen that the use of warning points can often go without oversight. Some staff whack on numerous points because they feel a player is trouble and should be put on a short leash. And as there is no public forum for players banned by staff or through warning points, unless they have personal connections to staff or a community of people to fight for them, it is as if they died altogether. Which does not send a message of transparency and welcome and exacerbates the distance of "us and them" between staff and the community. Ban Report/Banning GM (if applicable, please provide a link): Not known by me Minecraft Name(s) (at the time of your ban): Kinslayer Rule Broken/Disputed (multikilling, Griefing, Xray, ect. Be specific): Receiving 10 Warning Points Character Witnesses (Name(s)): No witnesses. Which is the problem Event Details (reason for actions, apology, ect): If the player had any ability to create a response they would have plenty to say. But as the ban was blanket, swift, and with seemingly no pause for justification they are forcibly silenced until someone remembers to lift the ban after a month has passed. The outcome sought here is that the banning of a player be made plain and visible, and the banned person be advised how to go about making an appeal or contacting server staff at the completion of the ban. This instance requires a statement that the ban is official, by what terms, and how to facilitate a return when the period expires.
  7. [Illusion][TA] Elindor

    I'd rather not debate on a TA that an illusion mage does in fact see what they are doing within their own imagining. They are just overtly aware of it being false.
  8. [Illusion][TA] Elindor

    I like to teach and practice magic with definitions and understandings that are roleplay based rather than dragging ooc names into it. If any MT beleive that I lack an understanding of how illusion works, having been practicing on and off for four years, they can address me upon it.
  9. I have previously taught illusion. MC Name: Jerry_Man Character's Name: Elindor Character's Age: Unknown Character's Race: Elf Link to your accepted MA: What magic(s) will you be teaching?: Regular Sensory Illusion Summarise the Lore of this magic(s): Creating a 'broadcast' falsehood (whereas mental magic is to one person only) with the senses, most commonly sight. The Illusion is projected by the mage from their imagination by connecting to the void and pushing the image (or sound, touch, smell, motivated emotion), and can fool those nearby to believing something exists when its image has been created from the void. The mage does this by having seen, and studied to some extent, the appearance of the thing in reality, recreating it mentally as any evoker would, and uses their mana to bring this apparent creation into existence through the void. As it gets more complicated, or as others attempt to interact with it and the mage needs to alter what has been created, and just with the passing of time; the mage's mana continues to drain. The limit on Illusion is both the caster's mental ability to reimagine their experiences, and in what they create to be logically plausible. For, where logic seems to faulter, the minds of those perceiving it immediately pick holes, generally resulting in the illusion disappearing. Write up a lesson that your character would give to a student: Elindor has had previous experience teaching illusion. Here is one as best I recall it. Artimec creates plumes of smoke falling out from his pants that covers the floor very thick. It reaches to the walls and begins travelling up them. Elindor watches thoughtfully and then begins to wander around the room. Artimec grins, thinking his efforts impressive as he darkens the smoke, and candles within the room grow dimmer. Elindor walks behind a bench and looks down. The smoke doesn't know how to react to the legs of the seat and in some areas moves around it, while in other areas it drift straight through. The illusion begins to crumble under the defying of logic. Much of the smoke disappears. Elindor kicks up his feet, attempting to shift a pool of smoke. When it doesn't move in reaction he chuckles. "You attempt to create the grand in an effort to awe and earn respect or fear. But what you create is still weak. You will be undone immediately. Artimec gives up and the failing illusion disperses. "Then what would you do, old man?" Elindor reaches deep inside his coat and withdraws a large red apple. He tosses it at Artimec. Artimec does nothing until he feels the hit of the fruit against his chest. His hands instinctively move up to catch it. He looks at the fruit for a moment and then queries the wizard. "You want me to eat more fruit?" "I wish you would" Artimec takes a bite of the fruit. It is perfectly ripe and tastes delicious, but as he masticates, the fibres of apple seem to melt strangely in his mouth and upon attempting to swallow it becomes clear there is nothing there. He looks at the apple inquisitively. There is a clear bitemark. "You did this? It is incredible. But... What good is an apple?" "It is small, Art. That is the point of what I am trying to show you. You do everything so big that the details fall apart and you cannot possibly take into account how someone might see through what you're doing. That means that your confidence is misplaced. You have to get back to basics and really look at what it is you're making. If you want to make smoke then study it even /more/ closely. Simplify the visuals of what you are making so that you can keep an eye on who you are trying to fool and adapt to what they are doing. The apple is good because it is so simple to create each element. But when you piece together vision, touch, taste... that makes it more than just an illusion. It is virtually unquestionable. /That/ is where you should be trying to get to. "But this doesn't help me in a fight. I can't use fruit." Elindor rolls his eyes. "Fine. You create something more convincing and I will give you your reward. I have a tip in mind that will compliment your methods perfectly. Artimec positions himself to create another illusion. "Well it had better be good" Artimec focuses on the table besides them. He envisions a book he had just been reading, re imagining the feel of its cover, the weight of it, the way light is absorbed by the leather's texture. Elindor nods examining the book. It is quite intricately decorated. A slight chuckle escapes him as he picks it up and flips to a page. He flips to another. Each one is blank. "You've got to watch out for books, Art. To some people they are just too tempting. And I wouldn't claim to have the mental capacity to fill every page of a book with writing. But! You have been a good boy and so I will give you your treat." Do you have a magic(s) you are dropping due to this app? If so, link it: No Do you agree to keep the MT updated on the status of your magic app by using the Magic List Errors topic?: Yes Have you applied to teach this magic on this character before, and had it denied? If so, link the app: No. I do have a successful TA for Mental Magic.

  12. Item Idea- Mana Burners/Wards

    I like the idea of eating someone's mana though. Like punishment for casting a spell in the vicinity of something. Though it would no doubt get extraordinarily abused. HOWEVER, capturing a shade should essentially be able to do that. If you can rehouse the shade inside something that is receptive to mana, then it would eat up whatever it can get. Like a pendant that prevents the wearer from ever having enough mana to cast a spell. Or a pillar from which the few blocks surrounding drain mana when it is used, also weakening any spells. The aboose possibilities are horrifying to consider though

    No no my friend. No finding. It is called pocket MT. I'm technically capable of overseeing Mental Magic. I won't have time to teach in-game, but you can PM me your app.
