  2. A Blind Boy's Light The Sun broke the horizon in Athera, and the god rays cut through the dense moistened air. Young Yohei Khen'aum was already getting ready for his first day of Monk training at Ramza Mantisuku's Home by the Big Tree Tavern. His adoptive mother Alirya put together his uniform and tightened his blindfold. The tiny blind boy shot out the door, grabbing his wooden branch he used for walking, but only held it at his side as he made for full speed down the grand Athera Highway. After bumping into many close friends, and strangers, with great excitement the young Yohei eventually made it to The Cloud Temple. He cut to the side road, kicking up much dust as he sprinted to the Altar to meet with his beloved teacher, Spike Vondar. Spike to Yohei was already turning out to be a fatherly figure Yohei had yearned for in the past, and a very wise master of the Triumvirate. "Mister Spike! Yohei reporting for my first day of real training!" The young blindfolded boy turned to face a closeby tree, and saluted it with the straightest posture. "Over 'ere Yohei!" Spike shouted at the strange boy from a distance, chuckling to himself behind the altar. "'e have a big day today, Yohei." The young elf rushed to the altar, and faced his teacher with a curious look crossing his face. "It took me all week to meditate through your cold water tricks! Now what..?" Spike walked from behind the altar "You will have a vision..", he took the young boy's wrist. Yohei is slightly surprised, but followed his teacher into the Temple, regardless of not knowing what exactly a vision was. Inside the Temple, the young boy sat between three stones placed on each side of him. Lapis Lazuli, Gold, and Pure Diamond, To both Spike and Yohei this represented the trinity in which they believed, the Triumvirate. Simply Spike instructed; "Meditate." And then left the temple. Leaving Yohei completely alone. This took a moment to register in the young boy's head. He decided to follow the instructions however, and crossed his legs, gripping both his knees slightly, keeping his hands in place there. His breathing slowed down, and that was what he focused on, nothing else. Many hours strained the young creative mind, Yohei in the back of his thoughts wanted to leave, and wanted to go home. But He was scared to, thinking if he did he may not be able to return to the Monks and try again. He figured something would happen if he waited long enough, so he continued. As the morning quickly turned to night, Yohei remained sitting in the temple, unmoving and silent. The night became dark, and Yohei cold. The Robe was light, and provided little protection from such conditions. He understood now the struggle the Monks had in store for him. He understood it was not a fun job, but a mentally challenging job. One that would constantly put him through pain, and struggle. These ideas became understood in his mind completely, and he began to challenge the cold, and the dangers of the night, trusting in the wards of The Cloud Temple for his safety during his mental adventure. The Night was long, and Yohei's struggles only continued. However soon, the sun would break the horizon once again. As this happened, in the depths of his meditation, Yohei heard a soft voice. It was quiet, and speaking like it did not want to be heard. However the more he focused, and wanted to hear, the louder the voice became. And it said with a very humbled, male voice; "Yohei, you will be chosen for a great destiny. The Monks will need your guidance, Keldrith's light is upon you now. Use this wisely, for these words are greater than any magics we can provide you. For the light is your strength now, your faith in me will be all you need." This was strange for the boy, and it took him some time to register. But he noticed something else that only shocked him more. In the deep darkness, he spotted a faint light. As if it was calling to the young boy, blinking to entice him. The light remained after the voice stopped speaking, for only a few moments while Yohei looked with awe. The light soon faded however, and once Yohei understood this is what he had been waiting for, he stood up slowly with broad shoulders. He raised his blindfold to his forehead and opened his eyes wide. He felt a strange hand on his shoulder as he did that, and jumped slightly. "Ye did vereh well. Now, 'e have some more training to do. But we'll save that for tomorrow aye?" The Abbot Spike grinned down at the young apprentice, proud of his student's success. "Aye." Yohei stood there as spike walked off, still soaking in the event that had just occurred for a moment. Eventually, he bolted off to tell his mother. --------- Just a small thing I kinda wanted to do to show I still live. To update the rest, the Monks will be returning soon. Stay tuned.
  3. where go?

  4. Monks need a new wiki guy. Anyone on wiki team down?

     

  5. I think we should remove this. Non player monks don't exist as far as I'm concerned and this is failed roleplay that takes a lot from our monk roleplay. Now, people will get mad because of the 2 week rule we have. Maybe we should talk about extending the healing timer for Monks to make up for this.
  6. As a Monk teacher, I like to review all the bans or appeals made by my applicants. It can help sort the good from the bad, and with them all public it gives the mods one less chore to do from me. I can simply click their profile, search 'ban' and I will see something. There are already warning points in place, if you post on an appeal that you are not involved in, the post will be removed. But with that said; ban appeals and reports have been a big source of drama and exclusion for many different areas of lotc. If you have a ban in the last 2 months, likely you will get trolled about it or even hated/bullied on lotc. I see it all the time unfortunately. I don't have a better solution however, and bullying is definitely more important than me recruiting monks into my guild. I'd say I could live with reports being hidden.
  7. Im sad to see the sweet spawn temple go, goodbye spawn
  8. Yeah I heard something like this too.. -edit- Oh it's accepted? Nice!
  9. No cloud temple this time?

    1. Kinslayer

      Kinslayer

      I thought the whole spawn was cloud temple.

    2. Yohei

      Yohei

      Monks revive people in one place, we call it the Cloud Temple. There is usually always a temple at spawn made of sandstone.

      Mayhaps these ruins predate the CT monks. They may have to build their own CT.

  10. Since I've watched this whole thing go down, I can't help but feel a lot of the community is being hypocritical and unfair to Kowaman. Do I think he should be the team lead? I think we should at least give it a try. Telanir made it clear that he would not actually be in charge of everything that passes through, all his future updates to the server will be reviewed by staff first, and he will be watched more closely. He is doing us a service and not one he has to do, he has a skill most of us don't care to learn. He isn't going to blow up the server, he isn't going to have the server taken down, and if he did, I'm sure it would be back up in no time, and he would be banned forever. So what's the issue with him leading the team? The development team supports him, the Administration supports him, I think it's very selfish for the community to just hate on their decision like that without giving them a chance. If they listened to the most of you, he would never have another chance at being the team lead again which is in my opinion incredibly unfair, and I know if pretty much anyone here was in his position and made a mistake that got you banned, but you really wanted to try again and make up for it, you would beg the staff to let you back. I sure would, unless they just kicked me out for no reason. He admitted what he did was wrong, and he is ready to move on, so are the staff, just go with it this time and stop being like this, it really makes me question why any of the staff members bother doing what they do, at least the development team at this point.
  11. See, this was the idea.. but what happened is new players joined the server, and lost interest because they didn't exactly want to join a nation. Some people like being independent, I did when I started, many of us did. It's silly to take basic freedoms away just so your nation can have a little more roleplay. Lotc isn't a factions server, people have a right to do what they want and create their own adventures with their friends or whoever outside of a nation, and freebuild lands might make it possible for them to do that and have a good or at least better start in lotc as a new player. Vailor did it wrong, I think it is the idea you mentioned that made it like this for new players. It doesn't work, trying something different is ideal.
  12. hey did you get your character's name from the movie Seven Samurai?

    1. Yohei

      Yohei

      Nah, I can't remember where I got it. I think I just used google to search up names lol. 

  13. I hope everything works out. Just remember what happened in the Fringe with freebuild. Small towns were fine, but people had these HUGE castles that went inactive 2 days after they were built. Even the small towns cluttered lots of the land when they went inactive, but the community was much more open to new players.. When new players had freedom they could be creative, being a hermit is only interesting for so long, eventually the new players that will likely settle in the freebuild lands would find their place among nations and guilds respectively. So I'm hoping see that back in the community with this, at least. I was one of those hermits with a really small rp group long ago , then I found the Undead and the Monks after that. I like that nations are presented as hubs for rp, and that those are not freebuild. No matter how it goes, it is good that you are trying to make changes that will help the server. As a new player, nations were really daunting. I didn't want to get involved with any of them until I had a good sense of what was going on in the server. I notice that lots of new players will end up joining the server and never end up playing again after they play for a few hours. At least in Vailor this problem has been larger than it was before in previous maps, I figure freebuild zones will give these players some kind of freedom to get started up in the world, I like this a lot.
  14. Any support is appreciated, I'm sure this road we are picking is going to be a struggle..
  15. Looks like I missed a little something, I will make a quick edit. -edit- I hope that is better, I honestly think I will always feel uncomfortable with my ideas when it comes to Resurrection. Still open to changing this but so far this is the best I've got.
