    I am indeed going to teach this nerd
  3. With the vote for Sohaer passed, the votes have been counted and the valid ones picked from the invalid. With a record low participation of seven votes of which only six are valid, the vote has ended in a tie. With that I, Athedil Acal’elor announce my loss in the vote. While it cannot come as a surprise that I had hoped for an outcome in my favor, I cannot say that I am too surprised. I wished to appeal to the purest of our people, the ones who truely cared about our ways, but as might have been expected, those have long since left Haelun’or. Our people have been declining for an age, while I served as Maheral I tried to slow the degradation, but a single ‘aheral can do little when he stands against a flood. I saw this as a last attempt, a way to change things for the better without having to convince others who were less willing to take the needed steps, as I could simply take them myself. Now we stand here at the other side of the bend, walking into an unknown future. I wish Mister Laurir’ante the very best of luck with restoring our people, while it is true I have many doubts about the man, I hope that he will be able to succeed where so many before him have failed. Should he fail however, I have only this to say, Haelun’or is but a nation, while it may hold many tales of old, and many traditions to its name, it remains just that, a name. The mali’aheral who follow Larihei’s path have long existed elsewhere in this world, and they will continue to do so long after Haelun’or is but a memory. Maehr’sae hiylun’ehya is ever enduring, perhaps in an age a new group of mali’aheral will find the eternal college like we once did in Asulon, and from them a true Haelun’or will rise once more. It is one of those many matters that only time has the power to prove right or wrong. For now I wish my people the very best, may an age of silver be upon you. Athedil Acal’elor.

    The Election for the Sohaerate

    Athedil Acel'elor Athedil Acal'elor [x] Abstain[]
  5. "And here I seem to recall that the Golden Butterfly had no offspring, thank Larihei for that, it brings one to wonder what this individual really is, claiming to be a descendant of the mali who started our downfall." Athedil sat there shaking his head lightly, “I mean this man even has trouble spelling the parts he hasn’t simply copied.”
  6. In adherence to ancient tradition, I Athedil Acal’elor challenge Cenwall Maeyr’onn for his position as Sohaer. For years this child has reigned by false ideals, unable to understand the true path Larihei envisioned for her blessed people. He along with his incompetent council have let you astray, he has taken our people away from wisdom, away from knowledge, away from silver. Under his reign he has killed mali’aheral in acid, he has cast people in gold, he has shown that he is cursed with violence, much like the curse that rested on his ancestor Nelecar the Lion. Instead of teaching his people he has lead you to war, wasting your lives for a pointless dream of power. Much like Kalenz the Butterfly he is cursed by gold, more focused on the affairs of lessers, than the development of his own people. He attempts to return us to a time that ultimately lead to the world seeing our kin as a sickness to be cured or cleansed by fire, seeking us out to do us harm and bringing us ever further from our ideals. It is time to look back my fellow ‘aheral, back to a time where we were true to maehr’sae hiylun’ehya, to a time where those words were set as a standard driving our people towards ever greater heights, instead of being used as an excuse for why we should rule over others. The road forward from where we are now is full of hardships, unworthy ‘aheral and mali’ata have left our nation and its people in chaos and disorder, and it will take time to restore Haelun’or to a time where we were truly a beacon of scientific progress within this world, a time where we valued our neutrality and did our best to remain out of the destructive politics of the outside world. Lucion the Worm once spoke of blessed neutrality, a state of politics where we sought relations with the outside world, yet stayed out of their wars. Was this not a better alternative to the needless deaths and suffering, caused by partaking in affairs that should have nothing to do with our people. Larihei taught us to shun violence as it was the weapon of lesser minds, we have no stake in their infighting, nothing to gain, nothing but a way to prove the impurity of this nation, and why it needs a change in leadership. May we find purity through isolation Maehr'sae hiylun'ehya

    The Pitiful Snake

    A simple note was found in reply. Is this not saying, those who speak out against the pure dare not even put their name on their ridicule. I spoke up against a man who lead you to war, who time and time again have proven his impurity. I explained why I believe Cenwall to be unfit to rule, we shall let a debate prove who is right and who is wrong - If Mister Maeyr’onn honors tradition and shows up -.
  8. "An impure Sohaer and council cannot be allowed to rule, I challenge him not by right of our laws, but in adherence to ancient tradition." Athedil would write in reply, continuing with a small side note. "But I do not expect a banished impure murderer to understand such matters."

  11. MC Name: Talias_ Character's Name: Athedil Acal’elor Character's Age: 455 Character's Race: High Elf Link to your accepted MA: https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/155089-arcanema-talias_-athedil/?tab=comments#comment-1465597 What magic(s) will you be teaching?: Arcanism Summarise the Lore of this magic(s): Arcanism or arcane evocation is in a way the very basis of the voidal evocation, the manipulation of pure arcane energy, and the process of giving it shape and purpose. Unlike the other elemental evocations, arcanism doesn’t take the form of a natural material, instead you call upon arcane wisps and guide them into your desired shape, because of this, it can be harder to study and learn, as you are no longer working with something you already have some knowledge about like the other elements. The color of the wisps is dictated by the aura of the caster, however remain translucent to the naked eye, meaning that all spells that would be cast are see through. Arcanism is broken down into four main sub-genres: Projectiles: The main form of ranged weaponry of the arcane mage, projectiles can take a multitude of shapes and sizes, ranging from things such as small but fast fist sized missiles, to beams of raw arcane energy and calldown spells. The bolts usually take a gas-like form, making them easier to cast than full solids. Arcane projectiles are rarely a one hit wonder, usually taking a multitude of attacks to whittle down your opponent. It is to be noted that projectiles always use concussive force, as shaping the wisps into sharp edges takes tremendous skill making it near impossible. Weaponry: The close combat arsenal for the arcane mage, the weaponry spells take on a more solid form than their projectile counterparts, however still shrouded in a thin veil of wisps. The weaponry is weightless to the caster, making it easier to handle, they do however still have the force behind them to carry out a proper blow. Much like projectiles, the weapons are most often blunt, as shaping a sharp edge requires immense skill and is near impossible to maintain for more than a few hits. The weaponry can also be used as tools, such as hammers and chains to hold individuals in place. Shielding: Ranging from small disc shields, to bubbles forming around the caster, or even others if that is what he desires. What truly sets the shields apart from the other aspects of Arcanism, is that they take the shape of true solids, formed into a translucent barrier. The barrier can ward off physical attacks, however does little to stave of things such as mental magic. Shields require a constant supply of mana to be maintained, the mana needed depends on the strength of the shield and its size. Art: Seeing as arcanism is able to take so many different shapes, using it for art carries an almost endless range of possibilities, limited only by the skill of the caster and their imagination. Seeing as there is no need to shape the arcane into solids, it is possible to make rather expansive creations, without expending too much mental effort and mana. This does however also mean, that the art creations cannot be used to harm anyone, as they would most likely dematerialize upon touch. Write up a lesson that your character would give to a student: Athedil stand in the empty room, the stone walls offering no decorations, only a few lights hanging from the ceiling to keep the room illuminated. He hands would be folded neatly on his back, and his chin held slightly aloft. As the student walked in he would gesture towards the center of the room, “Please approach, and stand within the designated area.” He would wait for the student to take his place. “Seeing as you have overcome the basic steps of connecting to the void and drawing forth wisps, we shall be moving on to the next aspect of arcanism. A great many people would bother you with having to write poetry to open your mind to new possibilities, or perhaps observe nature and, perhaps even ‘feel’ it, as if that would do you any good. No, here under my tutelage you shall learn to use that pretty little head of yours, if you prove to be mentally able to handle it that is.” He would hold his hand out before him, opening his palm and facing it upwards. A faint twitch moved through him, and moments later light-purple wisps started materializing over his hand. “To use arcanism is to see, to imagine, and to convince your mind that anything is possible.” As he spoke, more and more wisps gathered, creating a formless shroud. “You need to be able to imagine the shape you wish to create, visualize it before you, and then shape it into being.” He slowly started tightening his hand into a fist, and as he did so the shroud he had created started taking the shape of a sphere, floating in the air above his hand. The sphere floated for a moment, before Athedil lowered his hand to his side, letting it dematerialize. He’d once again fold his hands on his back, taking a few steps towards his pupil. “Now I want you to visualize something simple, whatever you feel like, I want you to see it clearly before you. Keep that image in your mind, examine it from different angles. Take a moment to do this.” He’d stand still, simply observing his student as he gave him time to prepare, and soon as he got a que that he was ready, he would continue. “If you have the image clear before you, I want you to do as we’ve practiced, call upon a few wisps from the void, feel their presence and your control over them, then imagine them taking the form you visualized before, and slowly guide them into shape.” Do you have a magic(s) you are dropping due to this app?

    On the topic of quartz

    Seeing as the response to this came in a Status made by Aythyinae, I think it'd be reasonable to further the point and make a little request. In the beginning you had set the price for quartz at 3 minas, but later raised it to 5 making it even harder to get in the large amounts needed, can we atleast see about getting the price lowered a bit so we won't need upwards of 50.000 minas just to finish our builds, you have to agree that that is quite frankly an unreasonable ask. Setting it at 1 mina a block, or even just the original 3 would make the idea of ever finishing our builds possible, instead of just some distant dream that will never actually happen.
  13. In response to this: https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/170018-put-quartz-in-the-mines/?tab=comments#comment-1604254 While I can see the upside of getting people voting, quartz is basically used as stone in some builds, specifically Haelun’or and seeing as Aeldrin was the one who originally posted about this, I’d assume the Snow Elves are in the same boat. We have already based our designs around an access to quartz, in the belief that like last map, it would be obtainable outside of GM stores. So by restricting access, you are basically screwing over a few specific groups massively. We use more quartz than you might think, a single house of a small/medium size easily takes upwards of 270 blocks of quartz to build, meaning we’d have to gather 1.350 minas per single building, at 5 minas per block, and that’s only for the small builds. Meaning that anything larger would be a massive undertaking, which would only involve waiting around to vote once a day. Because as Sporadic said, there is no other way to optain minas, outside of trading of course. I can see the point when it comes to things such as sea lanterns, neatherrack, glowstone and sponge blocks, which are used in smaller quantities for more specialized things. But not quartz, as when quartz is actually used to build with, it is in large amounts. Perhaps making quartz available, and to replace its spot in the GM store, start selling endstone, and purpur blocks, so people have access to those, while also continuing to vote. @Sporadic @Aeldrin
