    Really could use another GM that won't become spineless upon any pressure applied to them

    This is all depending on how the economy functions next map, I think we're expecting a bit more of a stricter system and Minas not being as inflated as it is currently

    THANIUM BOMB: Why it should be left un-voided

    This isn't me handling the event, Aesopian has been abusing his position for months. I'm just shocked how people think this is actually acceptable.

    THANIUM BOMB: Why it should be left un-voided

    I'm sorry but letting a lore breaking nuke that AESOPIAN enabled to seem 'cool' by the playerbase is absolutely ******* ridiculous. He should've went through the right channels and not abused lore, while doing an absurd amount of disgusting landscarring that followed. I'm shocked how players are enjoying this absolute mess of an eventline, I'd rather Supremacyops shove down word altars in my throat than the mismatched cult of personality that this entire eventline has generated. AESOPIAN enabled this nuke with the knowledge of knowing how bad it'd be received by staff, just so he could play the "epic staff member who protects roleplay". **** is delusional and that's even coming from me, one of the ETs who have abused their fair share of lore. This is, too much.

    I would just like to remind any aspiring or newer ET to look at this thread after the current events

    Soul Trees Remastered! Free DLC!

    I’m pretty happy the birthing thing got removed from ST’s. The only real clarification I’m confused with is Apostasy. I understand “why”, but within lore it would make no sense for the body to not just be instantly killed. As you’ve stated, it is a full commitment to the Aspects, the moment that it is removed, it makes sense that they would just succumb otherwise. The Aspects don’t actually care about druids and their squabbles, (or shouldn’t anyway). Why would something they’ve dedicated their lives to not kill them, even if the process was basically them being impaled and wrapped into a tree. If that protection goes, they’re still just impaled in a tree. (Or killed in whatever manner) I understand all the OOC drama surrounding it, but it was probably one of the better parts of ST’s that had a consequence that basically 90% of other magics didn’t. It has the potential for great roleplay, I believe anyway. Though I’m not part of the druid community so I can’t comment on how relevant my take on it is. Also why the moonlight requirement it makes zero sense. Otherwise, it doesn’t actually look that bad.

    Feedback: Events and Lore

    this is exactly not what I meant at all. By current culture I meant the people taking part and having something orientated to their own culture with things as simple as militant or exploration based things. do things that the players would enjoy was the tl;dr. Current culture was meant to reflect the event group you're handling, bad wording on my part

    Feedback: Events and Lore

    “If” a submission is made, then it should be submitted privately for the sake of avoiding any potential for meta-gaming. The idea of what you talk about in your post of using “aengudaemons” or “the void” as pivotal plot-points is what reveals both pieces as lazily written and implemented into the server. Both concepts have been butchered time and time again by either ET, LT or admins who decided they wanted to spin their own take on these things, where they have bombed out. To no avail. Race specific eventlines should be orientated to the current culture, using nostalgia and ‘history’ as a leading entry is something that should be avoided. There have been eventlines where they are race-driven, but not using the crutch of lore to reinforce their legitimacy. Instead, what they do is normally expand on a character’s experiences and give them something that the players /then/ can use as history. The September Prince eventline is essentially “lorebloat” 101, condensed into a shoddy format and rolled out with significant drawbacks. It overuses the base lore it was given, moulds it and breaks druidism while doing so, and then using something that was written this map to bolster a significance to it. This is not what eventlines should be. If you want a historic, lore based setting. You do what Xarkly is doing currently with the Vaeyl Order, things that have enough relevance to the older lore but give a fresh take that allows it to be engaging for the rest of the server. basically race driven eventlines should actually provide the ability to bolster cultural significance for later players while most bits of lore have been butchered severely enough to never be enjoyable again.

    Feedback: Events and Lore

    Current lore just doesn’t work well with creating a narrative that’s more engaging than a glorified “oh i cleared a big thing and found out something thats written on a history post.” With no lore being hidden, the ability to actually have characters discover things and be interested ooc’ly and ic’ly is non existent. LotC lore structure is fundamentally flawed in regards to its applicability in events.

    GM Update Log - November 2018

    I ******* hate this team
  15. >letting new players log out or be confused going into the mess the cloud temple is. >having an option of their introductory roleplay to be within the culture they applied to. Who gives a **** about merit, effort and competition when most of the races are going to be united next map. I include elven subraces as separate races at this point. We need to somehow direct new players towards establishing themselves in nations. Racial spawns shouldn’t be for people who already know their alignments and will go off 1000 blocks into the wilderness to RP, they’re for the lifeblood of LotC. N E W P L A Y E R S
