  1. A Letter to Clan Grandaxe In the early hours of the morning, an ashen feathered raven is seen flying through the great gates of the dwarven capital of Kal’Omith and into the Grandaxe clan hall, a small rolled parchment strung to its right leg. “To my cousin, Fimlin Grandaxe, Lord of the Grandaxe Clan, In recent years, the kingdom has become suffocated by inaction, the manner of which you are no doubt aware. Where once the Grand Kingdom of Urguan commanded vast swathes of armies, we have since grown dormant. No longer do guards patrol the halls of our great cities, nor do our once honest councilmen strive to work for the greater good of the people, but for themselves. Gone is the merriment of ages past, the unified purpose that bound our people as one. Amidst the upper echelons of the clergy, the sanctity of our gods is forsaken, their words corrupted and moulded for the malignant purposes of the few who lord over us. Amidst this flagrant inequity, we have forsaken what it is we truly are. Long forgotten are we that while we may not have always seen eye to eye with Clan Frostbeard on all matters home and hearth, we still remain kin. Sons of the mountains of old Aegis, Kal’Domhain and Jornheim, together stalwart defenders against the servants of the Archdaemon, Khorvad, and the bringer of the Eternal Cold. Now, we would sooner turn blade on our kin than accept the reality that stands before our very eyes. That this nation is not what it once was, that corruption festers at the very heart of our hallowed halls. Gone are the days where we could truly look upon our people’s actions with pride. No longer invested are the assurances that whether by means of word or action, we can bring about the positive change our people need. In self-serving paranoia of what was framed as an alliance, a senseless pact was formed with the Holy Orenian Empire to protect those who lord over us from the people they were sworn to serve. I intend to fight alongside House Romstun and Clan Frostbeard today, because Axios deserves better than to be subjugated by the same enclaves of power that have repressed them for centuries. I beseech you, as a cousin, a friend, a sworn brother in arms. Withdraw your support for Gror Ireheart and his ungodly coalition with the Holy Orenian Empire, and pave the way for a new era of dwarven enlightenment and unification. Fail to heed these words and the Blackaxe shall fly once more.” At the bottom of the letter, a name is signed in black ink, its letters bold, imposing, yet intricately scribed across the page. “Wulfgar Grandaxe, son of Morgrim, son of Valen."
  2. I miss King Algrim.

Have you worked on the, or any wiki before?: Yes, I used to have wiki access and worked on a number of dwarven articles. Which lore are you most familiar with?: Dwarven lore, general server history from Aegis onward. Please provide an example of a wiki page you are not satisfied with and list aspects that could be improved: https://wikia.lordofthecraft.net/index.php?title=Kal%27Urguan Minimal description and lacking details of important defining features and events in the city’s history. Some information is incomplete, inaccurate or has clearly not been updated since Aegis. Lacking use of any images. Inappropriate use of a copy/pasted font and format from another document. No wider framing of the city’s importance in the context of dwarven role play. Please provide an example of a wiki page you see as a model example and list your reasoning: https://wikia.lordofthecraft.net/index.php?title=John_I,_Holy_Orenian_Emperor Clear layout, use of paragraphs and introduction, containing important details of the character at the top right. Contains appropriate use of images to illustrate the content being discussed in the text. Displays well written and extensive knowledge of the subject. Proper use of in-text signposting and quotations. Please showcase your abilities with either: A. A short writing on the subject of your choosing. B. An example of an 'other' (Already completed wiki pages are a plus!). Linked below is a piece of writing I did to further explore dwarven lore and create the basis for future event lines. https://wikia.lordofthecraft.net/index.php?title=History_of_the_Ironborn
  6. I have to agree with Fimlin, as well as Joey, deregulation of RP + responsible leaders who don't get wound up in OOC grudges is what the server needs, and has done for some years now. If the current generation of leaders can do that, LotC would be much better for it. Let conflicts happen in RP, end this culture of people sniveling and plotting in skype and teamspeak chats.
  7. As an outsider to the elves, this is a very impressive and from what I can tell, accurate summary. Nice work! As in real life, history tends to shape current events. I wish we had more of this on LotC. Two slight things I noticed, however: - I believe the Wardens had already been officially disbanded by the time Kal'Urguan fell to the undead. - From what I recall, this took place during the world war between Urguan & Oren vs Krugmar & Malinor, which occurred some months prior to the end of the map. - Secondly, the Treaty of Zion didn't break down, to lead to war between the humans and dwarves. Zion was actually the capital of the Conclave in the Fringe, and Darius as the treaty's proposer, chose to name it after his city. It acted as a defensive pact between Urguan, the War Uzg, the Conclave and Alras. Here are the sources if you need them: https://wikia.lordofthecraft.net/index.php?title=Great_War https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYvHtMNPykM
  8. In some ways, I actually feel that'd be an even bigger case of retconning, as it'd mess with the other race's dating systems as well. On the other hand, just scaling the dwarves' age back a bit seems a lot less consequential.
  9. Sorry for the misunderstanding - when I say Aegis, I mean when the server started out in Aegis, which I assume was around the year 1300. I wouldn't even say this is really retconning as most of the dwarves who decided on the 800 maximum age around Asulon time are still here on LotC, some of which seem to agree we raised it too high. Not to mention, I don't recall it ever actually being role played that anybody had knowledge prior to the server beginning, beyond the small bits of lore we've released over the years.
  10. As I said in the original post, I created this thread more to generate discussion on the topic than to suggest a straight up solution. For the dwarves at least, it makes very little sense from a lore perspective as to how a dwarf could have lived that long and still not remember what went on before Aegis. Not to mention, due to the Ironborn and Great Collapse lore, we intended knowledge to slowly stream through at a steady rate, as opposed to one individual simply appearing and saying they were alive throughout everything. This is certainly one solution and one that we've used in the past to explain why most dwarves don't live until they're 800. I'm a little lost on the timeline myself but if that's correct, 400 or maybe even 500 would be more suitable. (I believe 500 is the current maximum that in game personas allow.)
  11. Perhaps an LM will have to clarify this but my understanding was that although the humans were cursed with extremely short lives, this didn't make the other races completely immortal.
  12. Hello LotC, I wanted to create this thread in regards to a long-standing issue we’ve had in dwarven lore for some time now, though one we’ve never really seriously addressed; The matter of dwarven aging. The current aging system, which places the maximum age at 800 years, poses a number of different inconsistencies: Firstly, if a dwarf is currently 800 years old, he’d have quite possibly been around at the same time as Urguan, or at least one of his early successors. Furthermore, he’d have lived through both the Great Collapse and most of the Ironborn’s reign, creating a problem in that the collapse was meant to have destroyed most dwarven knowledge at the time. Secondly, if a dwarf and his father lived the full length of their lives, they'd almost be as old as the world itself. Therefore, I propose that we lower the maximum age to something around 300 years, so to allow players to continue playing characters from Aegis if they wish, while forming some sense of a finite lifetime, and thereby creating a greater sense of generational awareness within dwarven society. On this basis, dwarven aging would therefore look something like this: Infant: 0-20 years Adolescent: 20-30 years Adult: 50-200 years Elder: 200-300 I’m sure there’ll be some who disagree or have different ideas to add to what I’ve proposed. My principal motivation in creating this thread was simply to get this discussion off the ground, and therefore any feedback you can give would be much appreciated.
  13. Nice to see you're finally achieving your dreams.

      from vip on a orc raid to grand king of urguan not too shabby huh?

  14. Even if it's just a deformity of some kind and not even a sub-race in its own right; If it's something you think you'd enjoy, I'd encourage you go ahead and see what you can make of it.
  15. Zezimus. I just want you to know that my heart was broken after I didn't see Wolfie_Seekar in any of those screenshots.
