  1. Just to reiterate what everyone has said: Well done on your first piece of lore; while its not perfect it would have potential! If, that is, there wasn’t a similar magic in place! But you seem fairly okay with this. I’d say, like the others, look at the current accepted lore. Both to find a good basis on how magic currently works on the server (point based systems are a little archaic atm) and what current lore is around. Remember: Lore can be little things too, so don’t fret by making a new magic and CA!
  2. Fallen Cherry Blossom 色は匂えど – Even the blossoming flowers 散りぬるを – Will eventually scatter 我が世誰ぞ – Who in our world 常ならん – Is unchanging? 有為の奥山 – The deep mountains of karma— 今日越えて – We cross them today 浅き夢見じ – And we shall not have superficial dreams 酔いもせず – Nor be deluded. Iroha, 1078 門前の小僧習わぬ経を読む。 ‘An apprentice near a temple will recite the scriptures untaught’ The wind whistled through the small village of Okura, the smell of a freshly put out fire drifting through the open doors of the Kawahara home. A samurai stands at the entrance to his abode, surveying the semi-abandoned homes. His head shakes in despair, the thought of what could have been fresh in his mind. ‘The village reflects its master, abandoned and despairing…’ The bushi warrior mutters to himself as he watches the Matsuda family start their day, the sole residents of Okura, the only exiles that have remained. Nobusuke reflects on the predicament of Okura, resigning the ghost town to memory as he steels himself for a voyage away, before Matsuda Koko barrelled out of her home. The child, a smile plastered on her face, started to play with the stones on the path with childish abandon. S small wry smile appears on Nobu’s face, as he internalises the moment. His mind made up, Nobu enters his home and bows to the blade of his ancestors. His eyes trace the lines of the katana blade, a ripple of lighter steel beaten into the dark spine of the blade. Memories reminisce of the last time that blade was used, the previous year during the Oyashiman Rebellion that had led to the exile of his people. Following the young lord… The absent lord. 雲散霧消 ‘Scattered clouds, disappearing mist’ The armoured samurai prowled the path to Okura Castle, the home of the Ishikawa clan. Nobu’s hazel eyes look out on the village, the fog slowly gathering over the buildings. Pausing on the steps upwards, his breath streaming from his visor, Nobu reflects on his training and teachings. What he is contemplating is the greatest shame that an Oyashiman can perform, one that makes his life forfeit. However, Nobusuke is prepared for this, for the sake of the Exiles. He has almost trod that road before. The samurai looks upon the closed gates of his master’s castle, great steel bound oak beneath the tiled arch. With a push, the unbarred door opens with a large creak, the hinges screaming with disuse and rust. Stepping through to the courtyard Nobu looks upon the overgrown flora, neglected like the rest of Okura. A sigh escapes the helmet, breaking the creaking and footsteps as the warrior approaches the keep’s door. Opening the keep’s door, Nobusuke looks upon his young master, the man looking back at his steely eyed samurai. Nobusuke slowly draws his katana, stepping towards Ishikawa. 雨降って地固まる ‘After the rain, earth hardens’ Nobusuke slowly removes the armour from his form, the Ishikawa tanto resting on the shrine before him. The blade, cleaned, sits on its stand, reflecting the disheveled warrior after his momentous morning. The man stands, going to the nearby window of Okura castle, watching the Matsuda family come alive, seeing his friend Fujiwara Mutsuhiko walk the steps upto the lords keep. Brushing down his kimono, Nobusuke descends the ladders of the keep, the bamboo creaking under his weight. “Did you do it?” intoned the visitor, looking past Nobusuke to the empty keep. “He is no longer with us… And my honour intact.” came the reply from the tired samurai. “Then our lands are lordless, we-” “I will rule as Daimyo, we cannot suffer the same fate for a second time.” Mutsuhiko watches Nobu, looking for something in the mans character, “Its unprecedented Nobu.” he states flatly. “Yes it is, but it is what is need.” came the reply, curt to match the tone, “Let us announce to those that are left… And to the world that we have our second wind.” [!] A notice is pinned to the tavern in Oyashima and is spread to various locations around arcas. “To Residents of Okura and Dignitaries of Arcas, Due to the passing of Shogun Ishikawa; The lordship of the Oyashiman Exiles has fallen to Kawahara Nobusuke. Due to the nature of our exile, Lord Kawahara has decided to abolish the usage of Shogun in these lands and instead take the mantle of Daimyo of Okura. You are invited to the investiture of the new Daimyo at the village of Okura, Four Elven days from now. Signed 川原信介 Kawahara Nobusuke” [!] Attached is a map to the village of Okura:
  3. ((No the ST here are clowning on an Ex-ET member for his eventline that was very controversial for what an event should be.)) Nobu happens along this anonymous poem, his face glazing over as he reads it. “The thoughts of those twisted minds are... Confusing at that...” Nobu shakes he head, letting the poem drop to the floor from his hand, ”It must matter not, for the author has no clarity of what we truly must live with...”
  4. Thats my point Alaric. The only instance of being a white kha SHOULD be to either BE a tlatanni or imitate one. Its like walking around dressed the same as jesus and going “Oh no, I’m not pretending to be jesus I’m just doing me.” as you walk around in robes, bearded and long hair as your crown of thorns dig into your head.
  5. Also people who are ‘bleaching’ their fur do so with the limited technology of LOTC, I mean what are they using? I understand people who bleach their Kha’s fur and I actually think they should be allowed to, it’d create interesting RP as long as the person doing it is FULLY aware of the implications. Kha who bleach their fur would do so (I can imagine) to impersonate a tlatanni. Any other reason is... Well it kinda spits in the face of Kha lore from its inception and they really don’t understand the race that they are playing. Possibly edit the redline to ‘No bleaching to white fur except for the explicit reason to impersonate a tlatanni’. At least then people would recognise the gravity of what they’re doing in roleplay. Just a thought, otherwise ban white kha completely.
  6. Voting gets you lootboxes? Lord of the Fortnite?
  7. It looks good, and acceptable lore; I hope a community can be built on it.
  8. I think he meant that the 5k was useless, not the animated banner.
  9. I didn’t even get to pay my bribe in
  10. Whats the hate on canonism? It has no magic, doesn’t conflict with lore, and just permeates academic writing rp.

      mogroka didn’t start it, he just encouraged it to finally be rp’d and taken seriously.

       

      all the scriptures and dogmata and stuff were defined long after his time, and the basic premise of it(monotheism, the four brothers, etc.) was literally the server creation lore. al’khazar was built with a cathedral with a giant cross on it before the server was even released – and you had priests since basically day one

       

      that’s one of the reasons why it’s rly dumb to **** on canonism being too unoriginal or not fitting in with the rest of the server etc. – we just took the server lore and ran with it. not our fault that everything canonism was built off was later retconned.

    This looks brilliant, and the quality of the trailer is better than the main LOTC ones! (No stuttering framerates!)
  12. 音楽 He kneels upon the deck of the ship, watching the lines of the waves in the distance. En-robed with a simple kimono, his hands resting upon his thighs, the man seems at peace with the world. The man’s eyes are drawn down to the wake of the ship, the frothing water curdling upon itself. A pattern within a pattern, at great contrast with the bulk that surrounds it. ‘We bring chaos to this world.’ the young samurai ponders. He takes a deep breath inwards, closing his eyes to savour this moment. As the bushi exhales, he opens his eyes once more. The scene he was gazing upon had changed subtly, but it would never live upto the moment he had reflected upon. His mind wandered down the tortuous path of the previous days, and his personal failure in protecting his shogun. He looks down upon his daishō, his twinned katana and wakizashi, tracing the lines of the Oyashiman steel. His eyes close as he bows to the blades, motionless for a minute as he gives respect to his soul represented there. The bushi sits up, before reaching to the tantō to his side and he contemplates the blade. The bushi is young, barely past his genpuku, yet he contemplates the life he has lead upto this point, the tantō resting upon his hand. He closes his eyes once more, placing the blade to his side as he resumes the position he took earlier, his hands resting on his thighs. Kawahara Nobusuke ponders the futility of his situation, other bushi have committed seppuku for the failure in the coup, yet Nobusuke took ship with his young lord. The young man reminisces upon a tune he remembers from court, quietly humming along to the tune. He sighs slowly, as he gathers his blades and returns to his quarters, prepared to serve the young Ishikawa.
  13. Proceeds to steal the build
  14. Just for pure LOTC history this needs to be pinned. Rocky also made a decent rep farm here, just sayin
  15. Bartholomew reads over the message, nodding grimly. “The Princess Imperial was the best choice here, hopefully the citizens head the advice and stay away from the demonic menace.”
