  1. You’re right, I’m going to quickly readjust this oversight. Thank you for your contributions!
  2. GARUMIDIR’S SPEAKERS Artwork by static-ghost Origin/Backstory- For eons, descendant-kind has struggled with the ability of communication, the use of couriers and letters non-existent ever since the days where the four brothers originally fell ill to curses. Communication now is buried within the confines of druidic corruption, where birds are manipulated to break their nesting habits and to act as relays. With this, the Daemon Garumidir placed the innate ability of the ‘M-3-4-A B.I.R.D’ within every descendant, an invention which can be awakened by visions that truly sets apart the gaps of communication the descendants have had in the years they have dwelled within the Aos/Eos. Finally, the first visions of Garumidir’s influence have now rocked the descendants to their core. The absence of communication is now a thing of the past, the communication era is now. Description. The invention is a small clock-work bird that is bound to a user through a conduit of soul-connection. These creatures are linked with the enigmatic constructs of soul-stones, being able to be recalled and sent at will. It’s a serious of clockwork measures and deific runes which enable this small bird to be able to fly at speeds that are immeasurable to most, almost teleporting. Also, it carries a voice modulator which is able to mimic the owner of the bird. The constructs themselves can be customised to the owner, they are able to take the shape of any avian bird as long as it does not surpass the height of four inches. Mini-dragons, phoenixes and a variety of other creatures can be mimiced with the speakers of Garumidir. Capabilities. This ties in with the above section and you are meant to cover what the invention is capable of doing. Garumidir’s creations are able to do a variety of things. They are able to teleport anywhere across the map with an ample amount of time (one emote after sending). This is because of Garumidir’s will, his intent is to ensure that communication is never limited They are able to transcribe messages to people, it takes a single emote to have the voice modulator adjust to the message. They are also telepathic, allowing for the transmission of messages as long as someone is not in combat. They are immune to environmental conditions and are able to get through any space possible. The creatures are able to disassemble themselves and reform in different areas to ensure communication is allowed. To have these birds be made and connected to your soul-stone it takes a single emote to retrieve, then a single emote to send off. They innately know the location of every single descendant and living organism in the realm, hence being able to be sent off with a simple command.\ Even with their insane speeds, three emote rounds are needed for the bird to be sent to their respective location. For even though Garumidir wants to make communication seamless, he cannot break the pre-conceived techlock that he’s been restricted by. Red Lines/Restrictions. This invention does not require a special app. Every descendant has the ability to innately envision and recreate this clock-work structure. (Kha and Hou-zi are unable to do so. Furries are disallowed in Garumidir’s will) The rules for these birds follow the exact same rules as current messaging systems. You must follow the same emote progression. One to call, one to write and then one to send off. These birds cannot transport anything other than messages These birds cannot be used for combative purposes, the moment you do this. Garumidir himself will smite you and you will die. (PK clause attached to using these in combat) You cannot perform sexual acts to this creation, no matter the context. Even shaping your bird to be that of sexual nature will have you be disallowed from using this. (PK Clause is attached for FTB’ing with these) Purpose This piece was made to justify the bullshit that is messaging. This allows everyone to have a lore friendly way to abuse things that are not part of lore, unless they’re a druid. This instead creates an insane amount of roleplay and justification for the mess of rules we have. Citation Spoiler. https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/165192-✓-garumdir-the-daemon-of-craftsmanship-and-innovation/ Edit Log - 26/6/19 Reduced the amount of emotes required to three as in-lieu with the server standards.
  3. this is unironically going to turn in a predatory hotbed please do not do this
  4. this is why the community team is the staff punching bag
  5. Update 18/06/19 " Adventurers have been exposed to the elements and different fauna that the island has to offer. More exotic bounties have been released and creatures of common or extreme renown has been spotted. Strange reptilian creatures have laid slaughter to unsuspecting parties that have not scouted, the island is dangerous but only for the unprepared. To ensure survival, tactics must be employed and those who are of dull temperament should avoid this island. Those who do not think, will be punished. Remember descendants, your failures disrupt the local wildlife, be cautious and be prepared. '
  6. imagine even trying to reskin a blatant rip off and incorporate it into lotc's universe :^)
  7. Artwork credit to (https://www.deviantart.com/inaauderieth) ANALYSIS OF RECENT EVENTS - THE RECENT EXPEDITIONS OF THE VEIL RESEARCHED AND PUBLISHED BY CURATOR PYTROL. BASED ON THE WORKS OF CURATOR ELGAN AND TYBALT BEFORE THEIR DISAPPEARANCES. SUBJECT MATTER - VOIDAL TEAR, MORDSKOVIAN HORROR, THOUGHTFORM, THE ‘DREAMER’, EGO “ The recent emergence of the Korvassian entity has shown interest of how the void itself interacts with our world. The last time an entity of this proportion had entered the world, the consequences that followed were of horrific proportions. The recent phenomenon of the ‘ego’ and the voidal ascension are concepts that are otherwise more ancient in concept when analysing sources and material that has been compiled and released to the general public. Those of Shamantic influences utilise a way to truly travel with their ego, though in a way where the mindplane itself allows for the transportation towards an entity driven by those that are of true divinity. Though, other forms of ego-travel have been theorised and believe to be possible by many esoteric anomalies which have left corpses or madness in their wake. The void is believed to be based upon the utilisation of the ego to siphon thoughts and mana into the concept of reality, yet the void has been a concept only present with the existence of descendants. Creatures and entities of the world do not possess this ego-centric version of power, yet we are the only ones capable of utilising and harnessing this power. Many might dispute this concept with the idea of the deific influence, but those do not require ego-centric connections to explore and locate planes of existence to will things to life. Instead, the deific influence is based upon direct intervention to those that proclaim themselves divinity, they require permission and devotion. The Void is a concept that is lawless and based truly within the ego of all mortals. Though, the Mordskovian Horrors were based on the idea of the ego and mortality, does this mean that the Void and the concept of the “Thought-form” are one in the same? Have we simply utilised the innate human ability of free thought to bring something into existence? The ‘Dreamer’ proclaimed ascension from the mortal coils through the complete abandonment of the mortal vessel to reach the spiritual plane where it lay, where pain and emotion could be escaped and then turned into pure bliss and unfathomable potential. If the systems of the void themselves are challenged, if they are now fracturing along the veil? Perhaps then descendant-kind themselves is transforming the way this source of unlimited potential works. What if, we are the creators of the void? This research is granting us closer to true ascension, to whatever these occultist fanatics were proclaiming as their true salvation. We see Voidal Horrors, but what if they are nothing compared to what truly lies within the abyss. The human mind is limitless, for we create with untapped potential. Curator Pytrol “
  8. UPDATE – 12/06/19 “Adventurers have tried and attempted to cull some of the populations of the island and have been unsuccessful. During one of these expeditions, a population of an undiscovered species was found by an adventurer of the name of Pikel Boldshoulder ( @Pikel Boldshoulder ). This undiscovered species swells in numbers and true details about its behaviours and capabilities are left unknown to most. There have been noticeable increases in population of the local fauna of the island as it becomes more dangerous for adventurers to wander within unprepared. Ruins are slowly being uncovered and nests are being tracked to their exact positions. When these nests and ruins have been discovered, bounties for expeditions and scouting will be arranged and supplied to the adventurers willing to take part in these discoveries. Good luck as always, descendants. This island holds more secrets than just simple creatures.”
  9. FAILURES - I “Remember, these creatures are too plentiful to tackle at once. Tactical retreats and whittling the population down in multiple trips is truly the way to do as such. Stay safe as always descendants, monsters roam these isles.”
  10. If anyone wants to do a part of this bounty in the next few hours, lmk. I’m free and don’t have any actual requests for today. Contact me over MC or otherwise.

  12. Thank you so much for writing this. I've been here over seven years and seen the absolute scum this server has had to offer. I've seen staff defend known pedophiles because they were their friends and other despicable acts ignored because no-one wants to face that reality and deal with the situation. I just wish this server was not filled with genuinely disgusting excuses of human beings that prey upon younger and more than likely vulnerable people. Stay safe please always to whoever you are as a youngster, male or female. Predators should be shamed and shunned off the server en masse, it's not the most “safe” approach but it's at a point where people should be known of how they are. I know with a few of the cases I've heard about I warned other RP servers about their actions on lotc to at least save another community from being preyed upon. If you have younger friends who may be getting close to someone, please for everything you have in you. Check in with them and ensure they're not being groomed or being preyed upon. Considering my future career nothing breaks my heart more than seeing a community I take part in not have the true awareness for the legitimate dangers people face on the internet.
  13. The next few weeks are going to be so exciting!!

    If you thought the forums were rowdy now it's gonna be AMAZING soon :3 :3 :3

  15. CREATURE NAME OR OBJECTIVE- Harpy Nest LOCATION – The stone landmarks of the Jungle Island. THREAT LEVEL – Difficult REWARD – 150 minas per Harpy Head claimed PROGRESSION SYSTEM (IF APPLICABLE) – Time The southern islands boast a decent population of these abominations. The creatures that are half avian and half woman, a horrific scene for any hunter who has not felt their sting previously. They will swoop, eviscerate and devour any who do not approach them with caution and preparation. Do not let the population swell, for bigger threats might follow with these hellish women in tow. ((Contact myself on the forums or on discord at joel#4235 to organise a time to try your hand at this))
  16. CREATURE NAME OR OBJECTIVE- THE PREDATOR OF THE JUNGLE LOCATION - LOCATED AT THE SOUTHERN JUNGLE ISLAND OF ARCAS THREAT LEVEL - EXTREME REWARD - 15,000 Minas PROGRESSION SYSTEM (IF APPLICABLE) – Failure This creature is a horrific, unknown entity which lurks within the jungle. There are remnants and ruins of what this beast may be, but it seems to control the populations of certain threats and otherwise maintain the natural order of the island itself. There is no hard evidence of what this creature is, except it having the ability to topple the trees that litter the island. Do not take this bounty or hunt with no preparation. This WILL kill you. (With such a warning, this will require an agreement to PK on death, non-reversible.)
  17. https://prnt.sc/ny747w The unknown Jungle expanse of Arcas holds a variety of creatures within its depths, an exciting prospect for explorer and adventurer alike. These expansive forests and jungles hold a variety of creatures that roam and multiply in their own manner. For this, descendants have been allowed to explore and hunt these creatures at their own risk. With some creatures greater than others, populations fluctuate and the people of Arcas are tasked in ensuring these populations do not grow too minimal or too expansive. A variety of creatures have been spotted on this island, with many more species and different types of Fauna to truly be discovered! ???? Arcasian Bear Arcasian Cockatrice Arcasian Amber Wolf Arcasian ??? Arcasian Boar Arcasian Constrictors ???? ???? Arcasian Harpies ???? Bounties will be posted on these creatures, but be careful if they’re reoccurring. You might drive a population to extinction, or cause another species to thrive with a lack of predator. These jungles also hold secrets of its past, bounties and expeditions relating specifically to this island MAY be something in the near future.
  18. undead objectively were trash but were fun for the 13-15 year olds that took part in it
  19. Welcome, this is the introduction post on Bounty Boards and how they’re going to progress and function for the duration of the time I’m here. The threads will be posted with this format where it will explain the threat level and rewards of the said creature. With this, I’ve decided to standardise the ‘difficulties’ and give an explanation of what means what. Since in the past, people had varying opinions and difficulties of what should be considered difficult is impossible and so forth. Application - Format [INSERT GENERIC BUZZLINE TITLE] CREATURE NAME OR OBJECTIVE LOCATION - THREAT LEVEL - REWARD - PROGRESSION SYSTEM (IF APPLICABLE) - [INSERT FLUFF FOR BOUNTY. ROUGH DESCRIPTION OR HAVE IT SLOWLY UNCOVER AS PLAYERS SCOUT] Rewards - Bounties will normally have rewards relating to the context of the job, simple retrieval missions for an outside party will grant minas. Spellunking may grant you the loot inside a dungeon and for creatures, being able to harvest their parts as trophies and regents is a possibility. Though a flat minas amount is always considered at first with these bounties, a rough guide is that for every tier up to Professional, there is about 500 minas per tier jump. When you hit professional, the minas increases by normally 1,000 and extreme will have a heavy sum for completing as such. Progression - Some bounties will have progression clauses attached to them, which will relate to a certain condition being met for the bounty to get more difficult and climb in tiers. The main progression factors that will be used are Time, Failure and Luck. (Though the ET may develop their own progression systems and either express them publically in the post, or mention it briefly on their bounty post.)
