      I'm good, you? Wifi got knocked out by Ex-Hurricane Ophelia nearly two weeks ago, and the company have yet to fix it. I'm also in Germany at the end of next week for five days, so it's looking like I won't be on for a good while yet ?

  2. Hey guys, so I have my Leaving Cert starting tomorrow (finals for you non-Irish), and it's going to last a week. I'll be on from time to time, but my activity is going to drop significantly. Don't worry, I'm not dead lol, and I'll see you all properly again once I've finished.

  3. The guy underneath me is a smelly townie, don't listen to him

  4. It's nearly St. Patrick's Day, and I'm Irish, give me rep and I'll grant you the luck of the Irish! (My ratio is horrendous)

  5. Just a notice about the inactivity; I'm in the middle of doing my Junior Cert exams so I can't be online much. Sorry for any inconvenience caused :)

  6. Sorry to the dwarves for my inactivity, a combination of family deaths, important events and homework has meant I can't get online. I'll have the Remembrancer Guild thread up ASAP, and I'll be logging in as much as possible from now on.

      RL > RP. And, sorry about the deaths in your family. :(

  7. Have you always wanted to play as a dwarf, but something about the race has turned you off? Perhaps it is the lack of RP? Perhaps the prevalence of PVP? What if I told you there was a new dwarf clan with rich culture and traditions, as well as less PVP? Would you be interested in playing as a member of the clan? Then maybe the Wakebeard Clan is for you! http://www.lordofthecraft.net/topic/110388-wakebeard-clan

      They're not related to dark elves in any way. They're unique dwarves who adapted to life on the coasts :)

      Yesssss xD

  8. Like I said, this is not a subrace. As Lago explained, it doesn't work that way. It is, as you suggested, more of a unique clan or culture. I'll take your "unknown founding father" idea; I hadn't realised the "no more sons of Urguan" discussion was had. As for the evolution thing, this is what I wrote in the lore. The founding father wasn't physically akin to his descendants, but he had their love for the sea and cliffs. The physical traits only appeared after years of adaption to life on the coast.
  9. I wouldn't call a new dwarf clan with a unique culture a "big surprise." We've already established that this is not a subrace, just a prototype culture. If we get a few players, it'll be a unique clan. If we get a few more, it'll be a unique culture. But, let's be honest, the chances of this becoming a subrace are quite slim.
  10. Ah, I understand now. Thanks for clearing this up Lago. If anyone reading this thread is interested in playing one of these characters, shoot me a PM. I'll make things more official later, this is just to get started up. ((Written on a phone, sorry for any mistakes ))
  11. I had the same idea with the boats and all, I'll add it later. As for the playerbase, I could try and get non-dwarves to play as the Cliff Dwarves, and to have some sort of road or railway connecting their land to the capital. This way, the dwarf playerbase would be increased rather than split off. I'd love to see this happen, but that's up to the LM's, I suppose. We'll have to wait and see, but thanks for the advice. Can I ask why?
  12. Actually, this works out well for the Cliff Dwarf idea. Considering they would be so isolated from the other dwarves, there would only be one Cliff Dwarf clan, so minimal members would be needed to play them.
  13. Before we begin, I'd like to just mention that I'm not sure whether my Cliff Dwarf idea would be considered a subrace or a culture, but I'll let the community give their own opinions on the matter. ~=~ Cliff Dwarves ~=~ In the early days of The Fringe, a selection of ancient dwarven legends were rediscovered by the Remembrance Guild. One legend, which many thought to be mere fiction, described the story of one of Urguan's lesser known sons. Aumi Wakebeard, a son of Urguan, was strange compared to his other brothers. He was intrigued by water, and loved to wade in the cool shallows of a river nearby his mountain home. He earned his name from the way his beard grew: curls reaching down like waves crashing on distant shores. Urguan often scolded his son for his "exotic" behavior, but Aumi refused to listen. He relished the feel of river-smoothed rocks beneath his feet, of the refreshing water lapping his knees. One day, as he wallowed about in the shallows as usual, he smelled a strange thing. It was salt, borne down the wind from the sea far away. Even though he had never heard them, Aumi imagined the cries of gulls over the bays and beaches on the coasts. His blue eyes sparkled with delight as he pictured the beautiful scenes by the sea. He took a step eagerly towards the tangy, salty smell, but his foot caught on a loose rock. The unfortunate dwarf was soon fully beneath the water, floundering like he was stark. He could not fight the mighty power of the river, and before long, was being carried along on the current. Urguan heard the young dwarf's wails and ran out of his underground home to locate him, only to see his son as a black dot in the distance. He sobbed and begged Yemekar to save Aumi, but it was too late. His son's terrified screams filled the air as he was cast over the edge of a thundering waterfall. The Father of The Dwarves fell upon his knees, tears streaming from his eyes and becoming entangled in his beard. The legend ends here, and was originally thought to be a warning for the dwarves against the dangers of water. Little did anyone know that it was actually a true story, until Aumi Wakebeard's descendants arrived in Kal'Arkon. ~=~ Introduction ~=~ What are Cliff Dwarves, and what do they have to do with this legend? As you read above, my idea is to have Aumi Wakebeard, a long-lost son of Urguan, establish a new kind of dwarf. But he must have died Soggy? Wrong. Aumi was carried by the river down to the sea. What happened then? Well, Aumi was immediately in love with the sea. He built his home into the side of a cliff (The first Cliff Dwarf), with windows opening over the water. He became an excellent fisherman and swimmer and, over time, his lifestyle and that of his descendants adapted to life on the sea shore. Nobody is sure how his children came to be. Some say he met a female dwarf on one of his rare travels inland, others that he fell in love with a beautiful sea creature. Though Aumi is long deceased, his kinsmen continue his way of life. ~=~ Appearance ~=~ Cliff Dwarves are quite different to their cousins. They have broader chests, which house larger lungs that developed to allow them to hold their breath longer underwater. They also have much larger arms, used for swimming against the powerful waves of the sea. Cliff Dwarves generally have black hair, which becomes snow white in old age. They often die it a deep navy colour by using the juices of berries that grow on bushes on the edges of their cliff homes. Most male cliff dwarves are bald on the top of their heads, probably because of the long years their ancestors spent working with the hot sun beating down on them. Their beards are shorter than those of their cousins, which stops them from interfering with swimming. They are very curly like Aumi's, and years of contact with salty water has left them stiff and wiry. Their eyebrows tend to be very bushy, which keeps the salt water from stinging their eyes. Their eyes are usually light blue, deep blue or sea-green, because they prefer to marry dwarves with these characteristics, as it reminds them of the sea. Their skin is tanned from exposure to the sun, and often tough and care-worn because the salt has dried it out. Cliff dwarves are shorter than mountain and cave dwarves, which is thought to be because of their diets. They live mainly off fish and bread, into which they add seaweed and sea salt. Their ale can barely be stomached by the other dwarves, because it generally contains an immense amount of salt. ~=~ Architecture ~=~ Cliff Dwarf architecture is a sight to behold. The wealthier dwarves burrow into the inland sides of cliffs, opening windows overlooking the sea. Poorer Cliff Dwarves build homes on the land above the cliffs, using sandstone and oak logs as their main materials. ~=~ Occupations ~=~ Cliff Dwarves tend to stray towards jobs as fishermen, brewers and bakers. As mentioned above, into their food they incorporate the characteristics of the sea; most of it containing salt and sometimes seaweed. They also make very talented sailors; their experience as fishermen and swimmers allowing this. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well, that concludes my lore idea for Cliff Dwarves. I'd be happy to hear your opinions, positive or otherwise. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I know this lore is quite short, but hopefully I can add your suggestions and beef it out a bit. Thanks for reading, -Soggy365
