  3. Here we go again. Benbo's LT application.

    Unlike Blundermore, that's all pretty much true. Wasn't our intention to put you through that, seems like we did just let you down there but hey, we are all unpaid, amateur volunteers. I don't mean that to be a cop-out answer, but it did happen we weren't perfect and we made mistakes. I can only offer my apologies now.
  4. Here we go again. Benbo's LT application.

    You're welcome to your opinion but I will address some of the facts; that event was pre-arranged to go like that, I didn't just 'hop in', but I can see how it would be easy for you to make that assumption and tell it to the world without actually, knowing what's going on. The 'untouchable base' was a cloud temple for spooks... The Lore Team read it, voted on it and passed it... And, like the CT, anyone could go in? And no, I was given freedom to make events/build, they wouldn't have given me a GM pex just to add people... Oh, and I didn't write the Mordring Lore. And I really don't know how to respond to me wanting a 'personal antag character'. LT lead was a nightmare, it became at times very stressful and on top of uni eventually led for me to leave, there wasn't much enjoyment about it and 'playing a personal antag' just seems so ridiculous to me because I spent twice the time I spent rping - writing and building for events. I put in so much effort into that team it is upsetting to see a response like this but I do remember one thing from your LM days, I guess it's probably because you were never involved with the team.

  6. Here we go again. Benbo's LT application.

    Hi lore team, i'd like to edit my application. I've found an LM I don't like.
  7. Here we go again. Benbo's LT application.

    Minecraft Account Name(s): Wretched Discord: Wretched#6173 How long have you played on LotC?: 7 years (jesus christ) Time zone and availability: GMT (england). Available at random points depending on what uni allows. But here most days. What lore are you versed in most?: Aenguls/Daemons/Historical/World lore/Creatures I suppose. An easier question would be what lore aren't I versed in. Hey I've been here for a long time I deserve some bragging rights. Give a summary of any staff positions you have held on LoTC: -ET Actor -ET builder -Game Moderator -Lore Master -Lore Team Lead Have you ever written lore for LoTC? (this will not augment your chances at obtaining the position of LM.): Yes. I'd give specifics but, think I've got more implemented lore than any other person on the server. Fairly sure I've written so much lore I'd have a chance of claiming intellectual property of LoTC. Have you ever received a blacklist or ban?: To the despair of some old admins, no. Who do you not get along with on the Lore Team?: Nobody just yet but hey it's early days and I'm ready to pull my hair out again.
  8. Thanhic Alloys

    Not much magical about it. It's anti magic. Besides, it already exists. This is more of a compiling/clarification lore if anything.
  9. Thanhic Alloys

    As long as your character knows enough about metals and thanhium, sure
  10. Thanhic Alloys

    Idea was that completing the process would get the resources taken, and the item given by a staff member. If LMs/Staff dont think that's possible, would be happy to change it to iron instead of diamond. I just want the sword to be blue lmao.
  11. Thanhic Alloys

    Entirely up to you LMs, personally I'd limit it to just this way and have whoever was using the old way figure out that it's easier to do it like this. Otherwise, becomes more of a challenge to moderate it.
  12. Thanhic Alloys

    That was the original unspoken way, as harbingers used frostfire to forge it. So that method was the way of creating frostfire without being a harbinger. This lore aims to make the process more accessible since frostfire is long gone.
  13. Thanhic Alloys

    Quick Preface: Thanhic alloys have been a small, minimally used thing for a while. Specifically during the Anthos antagonist, Harbingers had Thanhic alloy weapons/armour for a while. An outdated lore piece did actually implement the alloy for a while, but was shelved when new Wraith lore came out that encompassed Harbingers within it, thus that segment of lore was lost. Seen Here: https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/139645-lore-rerevison-harbinger-theory/ This lore hopes to clarify the limitations, the possibilities and the power of Thanhic Alloys. This document is an OOC lore proposal, if accepted, the method of making these weapons must either be discovered in RP, or self-taught by characters that consider themselves adept in Thanhium. Thanhic Alloys Thanhium’s nature is both delicate and volatile, to shape it into anything has never possible until scholars of the unusual substance developed a means to do so. Through great sacrifice and time consuming effort, did they discover a precise procedure that allowed for the creation of weapons like no other. Such a weapon, would prove a particularly powerful menace to those magically orientated, thus is born the ultimate mage hunter’s weapon: The Thanhic Sword. (For details on the properties of Thanhium, see here: https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/142474-thanhium/ ) While a shard of Thanhium can make for an easy weapon, it is toxic, and prone to collapse/detonate if its environmental requirements are not met. On top of this it could only be used once before shattering into dust, harming anyone nearby. For this reason, shards of Thanhium alone do not make for effective weapons. The Process: It should first be noted, that the process to creating thanhic weapons has a significant chance to fail. It is a long, laborious task that is exceedingly dangerous at every step, and without protective measures anyone attempting to complete this process would surely perish to poisoning before it ended. Step 1: First, acquire the necessary materials and devices: An iron sieve (A hopper). An anvil. 2 blocks of Thanhium for forging (lapis). 4 blocks of Thanhium for temperature/humidity control. 2 ferrum ingots (iron). A Cauldron with water. A Crusher mechanism (dispenser) A large furnace. A small bowl (flower pot) The end result should look something like this, but need not be exactly the same: Step 2: After those have been acquired, the second step is to create the environmental circumstances that allow for the process to take place, and that is to bring pure Thanhic crystals into the room to reduce its temperature to the point where frost begins to form. The furnace should be extinguished whenever not in use to allow this to happen. This reduces the room’s humidity to the point where the Thanhium is essentially, replicating its own natural habitat – under these conditions it is far less prone to detonate or otherwise react unexpectedly. Step 3: Small amounts of Thanhium should then be fed into the crushing mechanism, which will then pour its content into the iron sieve. The aim here is to create as fine a powder as possible, as even small chunks can congeal together and explode. The sieve should be emptied out after every use, as frost will form from residue thanhium and block it up. Step 4: Melt down the Ferrum ingots to fill a mould, for example a blade mould. Sprinkle the fine thanhic dust into the mould while the metal remains in liquid form. Be warned, if any chunks enter the mould, it will immediately detonate, and send fiery hot metal splashing across the room. Let the metal cool naturally. Step 5: Repeat steps 3 and 4 for four days, at which point the blade will become imbued with the maximum amount of thanhium without effecting its durability. Attempting to deposit all Thanhium at once into the blade would result in immediate detonation – the thanhium must be fed in small doses to prevent it from congealing back into explosive crystals. Step 6: Reheat the sword for the last time and begin to shape it into its desired shape with a hammer. Be warned: this is the final test, if everything went to plan then you should be able to shape the sword, give it an edge, then attach whatever hilt and pommel you desire after cooling it in the cauldron of water. However, should any of these steps have been neglected, or by chance measurements were wrong, then all it will take is a swing of a hammer to cause the sword to explode upon impact. (For the final step, you must do /roll 20. Rolling 5 or under will detonate the sword, and you must start the process again. It is recommended you have a witness/staff member watching for the final step as confirmation.) (The forging takes four IRL days. RP of the forging must be provided in screenshot form as well as the end /roll 20 result, and must be timestamped (do /date ingame and take the screenshot then) before being submitted to a Lore Master, who will get the weapon renamed, enchanted with unbreaking 2, and signed after the process is complete.) Properties of Thanhic Alloy: Cutting/stabbing anything will deliver to them almost instant Thanhic poisoning, making it particularly effective against mages. See poisoning effects here: https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/150268-addition-thanhium-properties/ The blade remains incredibly durable, even more so than regular Ferrum swords. The blade is freezing to the touch and a soft mist would be seen falling from the blade. It is safe to touch the flat edge of the blade for a short amount of time, but any cut would induce Thanhic poisoning You can turn the alloy into a set of armour, but it would require significant padding in order to prevent the metal’s contact with the skin, and to insulate you from the cold it would produce. As an armour, it would be particularly resilient against spells, the specifics of which can be seen here: https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/150268-addition-thanhium-properties/. And if turning it into an armour, the ratio of ferrum and thanhium remains the same. (So a sword is 2 iron, 2 thanhium. A chestpiece would be 8 iron, 8 thanhium, etc.) only one piece of armour can be made at a time. Red lines: You must learn this process from someone, or discover it yourself if your character is considered to be an expert in Thanhium – LMs may ask for evidence of this at their own discretion. Only one sword can be made by one person at a time. Mass producing these weapons would reduce the precision with which they are made, and would detonate upon completion. You do not have to consecutively complete part of the process everyday, you can have gaps. For example, it might take a week if you only worked on it for 4/7 days.
