    Brief Overview of Player Concentration

    I think if you account for people squirreled away into their family halls and guild halls and other more secluded areas within their city you'll find more people there. Just hanging out in the main square areas may not be the most accurate way to gauge whose in the cities. With that said I don't like freebuild.

    On Lotc Villainy and Solutions

    PVP being used as a means to facilitate RP = Fine RP being used as a means to facilitate PVP = Not fine Basically if you're PVPing because you want to progress an ongoing RP, that's fine. If you're doing your token 3 emotes and HALT RP just so you can initiate PVP, that's not fine.

    The Seven Years War: Forum RP

    Will the North American theatre of the Seven Years War be incorporated? I'd love to play a Native American faction like the Mohicans or Hurons

    I don't expect rewards from an event, but I am factually speaking a mongoloid

    [ ET ] Nepotism, Repetition, and Timezones

    While I can't speak for the rest of the ET, I've been quite happy with the effort Keefy and Aesopian put into their events. They do feel like ongoing stories you can be invested in, and not just one-time boss fights like so many events end up being. While I haven't attended any of Malgonious's events, its obvious he has put a lot of investment into his latest eventline with its forum presence alone. Besides these, I don't see much ET activity.

    I sympathized with the first part but you lost me the moment you said in-character cultures needed to change to accommodate people oocly

    Does Blah put you off?

    I think Blah, being literally just clumsily pronounced english words, isnt really a language. Its a dialect at best and inherently cartoony. I think the Orcish language should probably be more unique than just mispronounced english (Which as I understand Old Blah is its own language).

  13. ARTIST CREDIT: @Trinn Ilmyumier of Standing Elven Status Tattoos The Elves are a colourful people, who care deeply about beauty. This is no exception when it comes to possibly the eldest of the Elven people- the Mali’ame of the Old Seeds. For Millenia, the Wood Elves lived wild, tribal lives in the deep forests, separated into Tribes they called Seeds. They scorned the indulgences of civilization that their high and dark elven cousins came to embrace, and kept to a fiercely naturalistic lifestyle, devoting their worship to the Aspects of Nature and the Spirit Princes of Beasts. Yet, that innate elven instinct for colour and expression did not pass over the woodland peoples. The mali’ame came to develop a ritualistic system of vibrant skin-markings, all revolving around the core facets of their identity as individuals, and as a society and culture. First came the Seed Ilmyumier (old elvish meaning “To Carry”), where each wood elven tribe endowed themselves with a specific marking or crest, inked into their skin, to indicate their affiliation with that Seed. Next, came the Ilmyumier of Standing. Wood elves began to brand themselves to indicate their status, and the role they had taken in life. These brands originally had little cohesion or consistency, but through many Omentahu (great meetings of all the Seeds) these status tattoos slowly became standardized across all seeds. So all wood elves, no matter from which tribe, would be able to look at the markings on any fellow mali’ame’s skin and be able to tell their rank and role within their Seed. Much of the ancient ways of the mali’ame have been lost to time. There were once hundreds of Standing Ilmyumier in a deep, intricate hierarchy of ritual and status. Now, much like the old elvish Aspectist prayers, and the names of many Mani Spirits, most are lost. Most, but not all. As the bloodlines of many old Seeds still runs strong within the modern Dominion of Malin, the tradition of status tattoos continues, no matter how diminished. It is one of many surviving mali’ame traditions that the forgotten folk will not let go of. Here are some of the known Standing Tattoos. Cerridwen’s Vines Healers, Caretakers and Mothers The Vines of Cerridwen, otherwise known as the Mother’s Mark, is one of the two most important standing ilmyumier of the mali’ame. For it embodies the spirit of Cerridwen herself, and holds the spirit of the gentle, nurturing side of nature. This ilmyumier is worn by those who embody the spirit of the Green Lady’s gentleness. Mothers, Healers, and Caretakers. The mother’s mark is teal, like spring water. It may twist like a river or bloom into floral patterns and pomegranate domes, the sacred symbol of the green lady Cerridwen. The mark must be worn either upon the face or upon the hands of the healing touch. To wear the mark of the Mother is to honour the lady of life. To display your allegiance to your people and your people’s faith by desginating yourself both as a worshipper of the old Aspectist rite, and a healer. This mark is to be worn either on the face under one’s eyes, or on the palm of one’s hands. Horns of Cernunnos Warriors, Hunters and Fathers Along with the Vines of Cerridwen, the Horns of Cernunnos (or the Father’s Mark) is one of the two most important ilmyumier of the old Aspectist tradition. It represents the father’s side of the balance of nature, and indicates one's status as either a warrior, a hunter, or a father- all roles that require strength, bravery, fortitude and a protective spirit. The father’s mark is crimson, like blood. It may either curve like a blade, or bare the jagged outcroppings of the stag’s horns, the sacred symbol of the huntslord Cernunnos. The mark must be worn upon the face, or upon the hand that does the killing. To wear the mark of the Father is to honour the lord of the hunt. To display your allegiance to your people and your people’s faith by designating yourself as both a worshipper of the old Aspectist rite, and a warrior. This mark is to be worn either on the face under one’s eyes, or on the palm of one’s hand. Morea’s Teeth Kings, Princes, Warchiefs and Archdruids A king wears a crown and dresses in finery, it is known. Yet the ancient wood elves scorned such luxury, and honoured their chiefs in the way they knew best, ink upon skin. The ilmyumier known as Morea’s Teeth is named for the Mani Prince of Wolves, the patron of leadership. It is one of the highest status tattoos- and is only to be worn by those in a position of leadership, or revered mentorship. Princes, Seed Cheiftains, Archdruids, Oracles and Military leaders are eligible for this mark. Morea’s teeth are golden in colour and feature jagged, sharp patterns much like the maw of a wolf. They wrap around the flesh in order to emulate a crown. This mark is to be worn upon the forehead, around the wrist, or the forearm. Only a Prince or King may wear the mark upon the forehead. Lower ranking leaders must wear it upon their arms. A King/Prince may also display his higher rank by adding extra parallel rings of ‘teeth’ to the tattoo. Meracahe’s Tail Craftsmen, Builders and Creators The craftsman has long been an honoured tradition among elvenkind, for they provide for their people the essential things in which they need to live. Ancient wood elves honoured their ame’lie growers, basket weavers, canoe carvers, bow-makers and tailors. In the modern day, this tattoo has also come to embody the architects, blacksmiths and any other profession that embodies ingenuity in the creation of things. It also honours Merchants and wealthmakers who provide for their Seed and community. Meracahe’s Tail is a standing ilmyumier that honours the Mani Prince of beavers, Meracahe, the patron of builders, work ethic wealth. It features a pine green cross thatch pattern that resembles an abstract beaver’s tail. This standing ilmyumier is to be worn upon the forearm, the palm of one’s hand, or the tailbone on the small of one’s back. Hamatsa’s Dorsal Fishermen, Whalers and Sailors Wood Elves are no stranger to the sea. Many of the ancient seeds plied the coastal rivers, or even braved the open ocean, making a name for themselves as fishermen and whalers. There still remain some wood elves in the modern day with that oceanic heritage, such as the Torena Seed. For these seafaring mali, there is Del’phin’s Dorsal. This standing ilmyumier is in honour of Del’phin, the Mani Prince of Dolphins. He has long been associated as a patron of the sea, and all those who make their livelihood off of it. It is to be worn by fishermen, whalers, swimmers, sailors and anyone who embraces the rivers and the coast. Del’phin’s mark is to be worn on the forearm, shoulder or legs, and depicts a bottleneck dolphin breaching water. Siss’siru’s Grip Atonement Seekers, Strayers and Those Beginning Anew Unlike their common perception among other cultures, the snake is not depicted as sneaky or two-faced. Infact, the Snake is a symbol of cunning, power, and great fortitude. Siss’siru, the Mani Prince of Serpents is often depicted as a patron to those who have done bad deed, sinned, and strayed from the Aspect’s path. But Siss’siru does not condone these things. He bares toxins in his fangs to punish the wicked and the oathbreakers. Siss’siru’s grip is worn by those in elven society who have committed crimes, betrayed their culture, seed, or religion, or otherwise done harm to their people. Among those who have been re-accepted into society, it is a reminder of their past, and also a display of the second chance they have been given- to begin anew. Siss’siru’s mark is both a brand of shame and a brand of redemption. This standing ilmyumier circles around the wrist or the neck, and depicts a serpent biting it's own tail in a traditional ouroboros-esque design. Ohowaki’s Crest Scholars, Teachers, Keepers of Knowledge As in all civilized societies, knowledge and history is valued extremely highly among the woodland elves. And naturally, there is a standing ilmyumier to present one’s status as a preserve and a seeker of knowledge. It is named for Ohowaki, the Mani Princess of Owls, otherwise known as the Great Moonlight Bird. This tattoo is to be worn by those whose main occupation in life is to accumulate, preserve, or obtain knowledge. As such, teachers of all trades are encouraged to wear Ohomak’s Crest upon their flesh, be they a teacher of history, lore, faith, or practical crafts. Librarians, book-keepers, and tellers of Oral Histories also bare this mark. Ohowaki’s crest is to be worn upon the palm of one’s hands, or on the back of one’s neck. Kwakwani’s Wings Faith Leaders, Scouts, Pioneers, and Artists The great Raven Kwakwani is a powerful Mani, and among the most prominent in wood elven folklore. He is known as the trickster, deliverer of the sun, and the dealer of fate. He is the patron of freedom, as well as spiritual and emotional needs. And as such as become a symbol for Priests, Explorers, Artists of all forms. To wear Raven upon your flesh is to proclaim that you ply for the soul, and that you are unbound and free. As Raven is the patron of Spirituality, it is seen as a duty for the Naelurir Priests to carry his mark. Musicians, Painters, Authors and Poets are also encouraged to take on his patterns so they may be identified as artists. Kwakwani’s standing Ilmyumier depicting a full bodied raven of pitch black feathers, whose wings must always be outstretched, ready to soar. It is to be inked upon the upper back, upper chest, or under the eyes.
  14. So why not allow currently existing freebuilds to remain but not allow new ones to be made, give each active freebuild its own region
  15. Things don't get done on this server until people go public about it, no matter how much the admins want to claim otherwise. There were admins that did not diminish their playerbases concerns or attack them with aggressive sarcasm (I.e ever, rittsy, flam, etc.) and who generally were much more well received than many of the admins we have now.
