  1. As the woman entered through the gates of the afterlife, her feet landing on the Ethereal plane of the Seven Skies, she would be greeted by a familiar albeit considerably aged face. The man extended a decrepit, tired arm to to rest his hand on her shoulder, gripping it with the firm consolation that only a former lover could. ”You did good, you know. I’ve watched every step of the way and you’ve done very good.” Were the only words the hoarse voice managed out, finally releasing his grasp on the woman. ”Shall we go home now?” He asked, turning his back to her and walking towards the blinding light before them.
  2. “As the shepherd’s of His Flock we are more than obliged to hold ourselves to a standard of humility and poverty that far exceeds the expectations of the flock themselves.” Father Bernd agreed, giving the letter a proper read. “One of the Church’s greatest strengths has been its capacity to reflect internally upon itself, and I hope the past sins of our forebearers are not again repeated.”
  3. I think the anti-gun community is just in favor of more stringent gun control on LotC to prevent the populace from rising up given current tensions. Wake up sheeple it’s a way for the admins and nation leaders to trample on your rights and put you in political reeducation camps where you’re forcefed the idea of Helven supremacy over the lesser races.
  4. Father Bernd raised his fist, giving a hearty cheer. “REJOICE! GOD’S FAITHFUL TOIL NO LONGER!”
  5. As a side note I’m one of the people primarily responsible for assisting with the Lore we were presenting for the loremag and I’d like it noted I’m a certified Range Safety Officer and helped teach people on a range for six months of my life I think I’m at least somewhat qualified to discuss firearms, their manufacture, and their use. (Take a lil bit of offense to the person saying people repping for the firearms don’t know how to manipulate them)
  6. The same way you stop someone with a crossbow or bow, you stab them with a sword or shoot them yourself. They’ll more than likely shoot you, but if you’re wearing virtually any protection you’ll be fine minus probably a bruise or a broken bone or two, and then when they start trying to reload you stab them. It’s no different with a crossbow
  7. We have an entire structure devoted to that happening. You need to have people who actually know what they’re talking about steer the discussion so we can cut out the bullcrap. I understand your concern with powergaming and steering the lore somewhere you don’t want it to be and that’s totally fine it’s a valid concern. I just think we’re getting ahead of ourselves and speculating about something that might not happen. I personally have faith in the LT to be able to say “how about we don’t have sniper rifles and lever actions and revolvers”, their techlock works even now. The techlock won’t be removed, the boundaries would be pushed just a little bit farther to give everyone the opportunity to RP something new and unique to their nation states. Also as a side note I’d be far more concerned with someone propelling a fireball at my head to light me on fire and choke to death than someone shooting me when I’m in full armor from a musket, in fact I’d rather take a shot to the stomach from a musket than have a fireball thrown at me EDIT: I said the S word and that’s a no no changed it to crap
  8. Well the problem was more that it became cheaper for a centralized government to just arm people with guns instead of having feudal lords train for years and years and years on horseback. Centralization and changing political climates resulted in the loss of knights, because they weren’t economical in any capacity for a modern government at the time. If you took a knight and plopped them down 1800 on a battlefield you’d still be hard pressed to kill them. Logistics killed the knight, not the combustion mechanism of the firearm. That changes in the late 1800’s when you get smokeless powder and guns can have WAY more pressure in the chamber and bore. There’s this misunderstood notion that there’s a huge leap between the effectiveness of a matchlock and a flintlock, when in reality they would’ve used almost identical powders. In fact most of the early flintlock guns were just matchlocks that were refitted to take a flint on the cock.
  9. The LT have regularly retconned things that start getting out of hand, that was the entire original point of the Techlock. They have the authority and power to reverse it if they feel like people are abusing it. We have an entire system of moderators whose job it is to catch people and prevent them from powergaming things. Not to mention the massive leap you have to make in metallurgy and technology in order to actually get to a point where you have things like lever actions, spitzer type ball ammunition, and even tube loading firearms
  10. That’s not why knights became extinct as a social class and it isn’t why warfare was changed forever, muskets and armor coexisted at the same time and armor of the era proved effective against them
  11. For the record, I’ve been working with the LT actively to discuss and come up with ways to make Muskets something fair and scalable within the context of LotC and roleplay as a whole. The making of them would be a feat that you’d need an application and a teacher for There would be limits to how many you can make each week (all firearms would have to be signed by LT for approval through the use of RP and then logged somewhere) And I cannot stress this enough, Muskets of any sort are not as strong as you think they are. There’s a strong case to be made as people have listed before that things like crossbows and muskets coexisted on battlefields specifically because of the fact that unless you have a lot of gunpowder and the technology to make it, you won’t receive an intrinsic benefit of using it over a crossbow. The end result is effectively the same with either of them. Naturally I vote yes
  12. His Holiness, Everard V, frowns from the Skies. He is unable to comprehend the intolerance of the current church and their breaking from tradition.

  15. OATH NAME (and house if applicable): {Selrik Wick | House of Wick } DEGREE OF KNIGHTHOOD (Arma Patrina, Crow Knight, Marian Knight): Crow Knight AGE: 27 LIEGE LORD: King Andrew IV CHAPTER/ORDER (Order of the Crow or Marian Retinue): Order of the Crow Do you, Selrik Wick swear now upon the blade of Gaius Marius, the first Hochmeister of our earliest order, that all you say now is true, and that you have come to receive your knighthood? Response: It is. The truth is the burden of all knights, one that only the diligent can bear. Will you be true in all things, even if it may lead to your demise? Response: I will. To bear this burden, a knight must be strong. Will you be strong of spirit, and resilient to all forms of temptation? Response: I will. In order to be strong, a knight must be brave. Will you be courageous against your enemies, and to defend the helpless, even if it may cost your life? Response: I will. In order to be brave, a knight must have honor and loyalty, lest he fall to sinful ways. The knight must be above reproach, his honor and allegiance unquestioned. Will you be honorable and loyal to your king, your people, and above all else, to God? Response: I will. When you take this oath, you will no longer be a man. You will be a knight, invested with holy responsibility by God himself. Do you accept this burden that God has placed upon you? Response: I do. Now for your oath. Do you swear to be brave, strong, and true, as all knights must be? Response: I so swear. Do you swear to be honorable and loyal, to never forsake your vows nor your allegiance? Response: I so swear. Finally, do you swear to uphold all which is holy and good, and to honor God in all your actions? Response: I so swear.
