    [New Metal] Deep Iron

    Deep Iron Rarity: Rare Color: Matt black with waves of shiny black Value: Valuable Note: This mineral cannot be obtained via standard mining, this is purely a lore mineral. Obtaining this metal is costly and dangerous as you need to mine the ores from the deepist depths you can possibly go. It is a very tough and very light metal and can retain a sharp edge for a very long time. The durability of this metal makes it great for tools but very good for armour and swords Founders The smithing guild of agnarum Gimli "Gimler" Metalfist Balrog "Tunnelrat" Grandaxe Tesel Silvervein Hammerforge Bwelch Azaghul Aridan Grandaxe Belestram Sylvaeri Vagronda anvilaxe Origins The dwarfs of the smithing guild of Agnarum noticed just how some of the iron from deep in the mines looked off and didn't behave like the common iron we all know. This iron would normally just get thrown away but this time they decided to look in to it. They tried to work it like any normal metal but noticed that it seems to compact itself down thus needing more ore just to make a single ingot. after noticing that i will take a lot more than a normal forge to make this ingot they began work on a better forge, when they were able to finally make a ingot it took 10 ore chunks just to make a single ingot and extreme heat but once in a ingot it became extremely resistant to heat and surprisingly light thus making it hard to reforge in to items. Forging To forge this metal it required extreme heat to the point where the smith doing it would have to wear a protective suit or treated leather as well as having someone apply water to cool them down often. Once the metal is up to heat, A new piece of equipment that Agnarums resident inventor. (Bwelch Azaghul) had made a "Power hammer " needs to be used to draw out the metal in to blank or armour piece or tool head as no-one can stand close enough to forge out the metal. Sword use Once in a blank form the smith will grind out the sharp edges with a pure quartz grindstone turning at high speeds, the smith then go about tempering the blade the water used is brought in from the top of a mountain where it is very cold and contains little to no impurities the blank in. The blank which now can be classed as a blade is heated back up and tempered. It then goes back to the grindstone to finish off the sharpening as well as polishing the blade. The blade now has a very unique look being matt black with waves of shiny black running through the blade also the blade is also very light. Armour use Once the armour plate is formed the piece is reheated and placed in water from a top a mountain to strengthen the piece one last time the piece is then polished to reveal the unique pattern in the metal (thus cannot be formed in to a solid breast plate as the metal don't flex much and would restrict movement too much) Tool head Once formed in to the tool head it is then ground down on a grindstone at high speed to sharpen the edges and then tempered in water from on top of a mountain. It then goes back to the grindstone to polish and finish sharpening this will reveal the unique pattern of the metal.

    Land Allocation (Freebuild vs Charter) [Your View]

    A more relaxed charted system Have it so the amount of land is dependent on the amount of people, a single person wont need the same amount of space as 10. Example: 1 person can claim 32X 32 5 people can claim 64X 64 Ect Basicaly enought room for a farm and a house that can sustain the population and maybe we could see formings of new nations that way as more and more people band together to get more and more land. Maybe even seeing the groth of cities like irl

    [Lore][RP] Airship

    Im not creation new tech all im doing is useing a furnace a verry popular tech and insted of adding a water tank to make steam im adding a balloon to hold hot air, also my clan "Azaghul" is open to all races and so will the guild if it is accepted i belive in equality for the races (plus my old persona was kicked out of a hold for marrying a elf lol ) So whats the status of this then???

    [Lore][RP] Airship

    I dont know magic but i know machines and if i can level the field between magic and machine i will lol Im not good at the whole gods and lore thingy but i think staff could come up with a reason why not meany could exist at once I said in the rp area that the balloon in not impenetrable as it can be cut with pointy weapons like a arrow or sword and since we have ballista siege weapons all you got to do is aim up not down

    [Lore][RP] Airship

    A okay amount lol and the guild lock will limit the ships plus the event team could come up with a event that the gods only alow 5 ships There were a flying ship in lord of the rings lore due to it being blessed lol i dont think the gods on the server will bless a boat for me lol https://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Vingilot

    [Lore][RP] Airship

    a cannon is much more destructive than a airship that can crash at any min plus i thought rune cannons were a thing i always thought that funny that on the old maps they had fast travel points like the boats and carts we already have steam engines and steam boats that’s what the dwarf paddle boats are i think i remember reading that back in the day lol Any other questions or comments?

    [Lore][RP] Airship

    This is a RP and Lore post in one for a airship to be granted access to be built on the server, i am proposing this as there is a current stale feeling for current tech that needs to be shook up and since we have a new map coming this it will open up opportunity for more RP as well as maybe make wars and trade more fun. The RP: Bwelch Azaghul was studying the designs for the steam engine in his study one cold lonely night in his house just outside the hold, after discussing with Throri 'Warmheart' Stonemace a way to implicate it in to the wooden ships he makes, Bwelch thought to himself that he may be able to not just create a way to stop fires due to heat on wood but even compact it down so even smaller ships can have the advantages. He started work on a small model for use to work out his equations (image below) He not only came up with a compact engine but also a "water reclamation unit" to try and reclaim the water turned in to steam. As a side not he thought maybe he can make a new forge that will benefit a steam engine but that is a project for a later date But during all of this he noticed how a leather cap left on the pipe above the furnace unit would rise and fall, so he told Throri 'Warmheart' Stonemace of a possible new ship that he will need help with but first he needed to work out the way to lift it. And it came to him one day as he was eating a pig that he just hunted, he thought to himself that the badder was tough and would need little to make fit the pipe on the furnace, so after fashioning a small ring to go around the neck and making sure that no holes except the one he wanted was there he place the bladder on the furnace. With a big bang the bladder blew up causing him to fall off his stool and landing on the furnace burning his lower arm and his upper face scaring him and limiting his use of his one arm, but that didn't turn him away he looked for help and once healed enough to go back to work he vanished once again in to his study. Trying to work out why the bladder failed he decided to make a way to release the pressure and heat via a small flap on the side of the bladder, that seemed to do the trick but knowing that he could never get a bladder big enough he went out and spent alot on leather scraps and wax. When he got back he made a larger balloon out of the leather after he treated it with wax and started testing just how much he could lift with this new balloon. He tried to lift some animals but the dung was a problem if not to say messy, then he attached a chest to it and up it went but slowly, taking down note he had a row boat dragged to his study to test tho it did become lighter it didn't lift. He went back to his drawing board and tried to work out the maths and all and noticed that to lift a row boat the balloon would have to be the size of the boat at least and tied down with leather straps turned in to rope for security. Having made the bigger balloon and leather rope he tested it and it raised up and a good rate but with all discovery come failure the balloon hit the roof and tore wide sending the boat and furnace down hard on the floor spilling hot coals everywhere, tho he did have a water bucket on hand the hot coals did catch his wardrobe on fire and the sudden thump to the floor had made loads of cracks in his floor, He now had to work on a way to protect the fragile balloon from any unnecessary damage, noting that iron would be to heavy as well as stonecladding and wood would have worked but cost alot to cover a full balloon so he thought that another leather skin around it may help but that would cost way to much then a idea hit him wool, wool was cheap at the hold and easy to work with. He began sewing the leather together with a wool outer skin and began testing, this time the roof and other objects didn’t make the balloon brake but swords and arrows and anything pointy shot at it would tear it easily, now his balloon was as good as he could get it he contacted Throri 'Warmheart' Stonemace for his help in designing a sloop sized vessel to test out the balloon. Throri 'Warmheart' Stonemace came back with several designs with the dimensions and weight of each, bwelch chose a small light singeing and went to work figuring out the size and shape of the balloon to be able to lift it. Now he had the design he went to the hold to beg for the materials and money to make the first prototype. https://imgur.com/a/wiAiwX6 The OOC: The airship will be slow and hard to control as weather is a bigger obstacle.This means to rp using a airship you will need to have at least a crew of 5 (1 pilot 2 stokers 1 water boy and 1 navigator) upon taking off will all need to do a roll of 10+ of a 20 roll to make sure nothing goes wrong with lift off. Then they will need to rp a event that a member of the event team chooses (high wind/lost/fire/man over board/ect) if passed they will then have to rp the landing of the ship again rolling to make sure no damage during this process. The knowledge on how to make this will also be locked behind a air master guild at the hold where to be able to own a ship of your own you will need to join and climb the ranks Novice (water boy or stoker on ship , 5 events to leave up) Adept( learning navigation of the sky, 3 events needed to level up) Apprentice (learn to pilot the vessel, 5 events needed to level up) Expert (captain a ship under the control of the guild, 3 event to level up) Master (given the license to own a ship of their own, 10 event to level up) Elite (learns how to build the ships) Grand masters (this rank is only obtainable by elites that prove themselves to be worth of the role to the guild) Having it this way means it isn't going to be easy to have a airship and it will be a long time before there would be any significant change to the current meta of using sea going vessels the Prototype will belong to the Azaghul Clan and its chosen allies. Okay so to do some damage control before the comments get agree. 1) this is a reuse of current steam tech introduced by the halfling wheat engine and the dwathen engine which was made by my RP ancestor in part (troopermatthew and i was part of his family and worked on the steam ship. 2) it will not brake RP as it will be locked behind RP progression up the guild ranking and behind events (people complained saying the steam boat would kill the rp and server and it haven't. 3)for those who think well we may as well bring trains and full on blimps in then. No the design i’m proposing will have event determine the success of the take off flight and landing which means that the crew could all have a permadeth scenario happen to them. 4)the reason i’m suggestion this is because there is no major advancements for a long time and now a new map is on the way we need something to shake up RP okay now everyone can go to town on me in the comments
