    The Day Alderyn Burned

    A clarion procession of Ithelanen kin strode through the city, their faces lit by torchlight against the darkness of the night. Lead by through the city by Aneir’in Ithelanen, foremost among this band of Lupine brethren. Shouting like demons in a strange dialect they set fire to everything in sight. A dead city for a degenerate people. Forward still, this reaving continued until the city swiftly lay burning in the background; houses of oak and birch aflame like campfires, reaching to grasp the heaven. There they stood as migrants, all settled ominously; whomever remained fled out into the countryside, to Aegrothond. Standing against the tide of refugees, Aneir’in Ithelanen held his arms outstretched and his gaze wide; he was happy. BY THE WILL OF FANG AND FURY WE WILL LEAVE NOTHING FOR THE ENEMY; POISON THE WELLS, BURN YOUR CROPS, SLAUGHTER YOUR LIVESTOCK. LEAVE NOTHING BEHIND. MOREA PUNISHES HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE. THEY ABANDON THE OLD WAYS AND BETRAY HIS PACT. LET ALDRYN BE A SACRIFICE, THE HUNT SUSTAINS.

  6. A very old man watches over the burning city from afar, his memories drifting off to days of the past. “They were burned once and there was hell to pay.” he’d note to himself manifesting the words, a prayer that they might become realized. “Good luck, for you’ve woken the sleeping giant.”

    Playable CA Race Lore - Drakul, Serfs Of The Stone Serpent

    If this is how Striga are to be rewritten they should just be shelved outright. The middle ground is more like a hijacking of the original piece and fundamentally changes the pillars that made being a Striga compelling. This lotc medium is high fantasy, Striga lore was written in low fantasy; the two perspectives are at odds with each other. They they don’t mix, and if you’re going to use someone else’s work you should at the least honour the source material and use it effectively. That means no dragons no ties to blood magic, no levitation, and no vampires WIELDING magic. The use of Aeldin and Anthos interchangeably is also confusing, travel and the way it’s implied in this lore piece is really vague. A dragon across the ocean hundreds of kilometers away shouldn’t be able to just ‘take an interest,’ the way things progress and the time it takes them to do so is actually important if you’re just going to continent hop like that. Lore should be localized when dealing with massive landmasses instead. Last thing I want to touch on is the way this piece seems to trade off development and independence for flavour. Along with the low-fantasy focus, the second most important aspect of Striga lore is the character interaction. All the overlords of Strigadom act essentially as absentee landlords, Gedym aep Helgraen and the Unseen are hands off and thats how they should be. Striga are the outsiders and server-side, only really reprehensible by their peers. It’s a cringey to me that the progenitor of all Striga is being tossed around server lore just so you can check off a box. The priority here is on flashy powers and mandated bloodline traits which seems kind of redundant, with Striga the focus is instead on how your character develops in relation to others and how they reconcile the change within themselves due to their turning. This as opposed to getting tossed one of these archon vamp archetypes and levitation as a free appetizer. It took a long time for vampires to become a thing on LOTC, and it wasn't because people desperately wanted to rp a bloodsucking cliche. This server has magic and monsters and gods and demons; avenues for creativity without relying on tropes, which is why for the longest time they weren’t a thing. It’s also why werewolves failed, because when all that matters is the ‘niche’ it isn’t enough. The reason why Strigae worked was because story, character, and simplicity were prioritized. I appreciate that you guys want to put the old stuff to bed and come up with something new so please do that. Vampires don’t need to be convoluted to be fun. Just come up with something fresh and leave the old men out of the picture. So preferably no references to the original lore piece, apologies for the rant.
