    Yeah, we should probably make it so newcomers are forced into tutorial island, or make it more easily accessed.

  5. [✓] [Lore] The Origins of Druidism

    Well, I mean, it's better, sure, but I meant more along the lines of God being the supreme creator of all things. The aenguldaemons, be they aspect or otherwise, are merely the caretakers of creation, not its ultimate creators. I mean, if God really was some sort of master creator, wouldn't he have made creatures able to reproduce? Rather than have them be things made by the Aspects. I mean... what else are the descendants going to eat, if not plants and animals? My own version of yours would roll something like this: In the beginning, the Creator gave birth to all things, and most precious among them was life. The power of lifeforce. A gift so sacred that three Aenguls took notice of this mortal realm and descended down upon to watch it flourish. Three of them were chosen to become its curators. The plants and animals brimmed with life and energy. They would reproduce, and adapt to new environments. The kind and gentle Cerridwen was taken by this sight, and entranced by the beauty of new life. She became the curator of birth and growth -- hers was the blessing of beginnings. The Aengul Cernunnos observed life flourish, becoming abundant, and witnessed its ultimate end. Animals and plants would succumb to to the harsh realities of nature, the whipping winds and tearing waters, even the ravages of time. It became a piece of him. His would be the blessing of endings. Finally, there was the Aengul Nemiisae. She saw the beginnings and endings of nature collide and shift about in a chaotic manner. The rise of predators and the exhaustion of prey. The starvation of hunters and the expansion of the hunted. A crude balance formed at first, slowly becoming steady with time. A hardened, darker truth to some; to others a necessity. Toxins, claws, fangs, defensive attributes and predatory tactics to cull out the weak. This touched the deepest parts of Nemiisae's soul, and to hers became the blessing of Culling. Thus, with this final piece in place, the trio of Aspects were complete, and they would work forevermore to maintain the natural order of creation. This is no skin off you again, Delmo. It's just I really goddamn hate the Mathic cycle lore.
  6. [✓] [Lore] The Origins of Druidism

    I still don't think you should be having all this 'dying god' crap. It's worthless garbage which does nothing but overcomplicate the server when a new player is trying to apply. You know what is simple? 'ah, the backstory is the same as Christianity'. It's that simple. One sentence is literally all you'd need for the creation story. Look. You can have your neo-spiritualism bullshit, but put it AFTER the creation story. Maybe Iblees killed him, maybe he fell off a cliff, maybe god had a stroke after eating too much beef, idgaf, but the creation story itself should be incredibly simple. Everything else is good though -- no skin off Delmo, this lore is of admissible quality. It's just this paragraph below I goddamn loathe with a passionate hatred. I'd post an edited version, sure, but it'd change it to be inline more with the traditional ancient history, rather than the mathic cycle bullshit, so I can't really do changes to help.
  7. [Accepted] [Actor] SquirtGun's ET Application

    Babe why u do this to me It will happen soon, just some trouble finding a weekend where we aren't already having other big events. I can very well do as a weekday event, but then you will only be able to buy things from it once. Tomorrow, I guess.
  8. [Bounty] Cervant (Moderate)

    Wanted: Cervant A cervant on the left. Threat level: Moderate Suggested party number: 3-12 Description of beast(s): They are strange creatures. Some ecologists and druids say they are forms of chimera, made of elks and snails. They have no heads, instead wearing a skull, fit with enormous bony tusks, horns, and antlers. They are the size of moose, and incredibly challenging to kill. Beware their sticky vomit! You can attack them with as few as three people, though the chance of success with such a small group is limited. Many more will guarantee your success. Location: Any non-populated area. Rewards: 300 Mina Message Aesopian to schedule this event.
  9. Awaken My Hate

    It's still ongoing. No one person has collected all the books yet.
  10. [✓] Mani - Demigods of the Wild

    To be fair, we do already have a crapload of nature stuff. the real answer I want from @吳憾戰士14 is what the nature guys think of March Ash also, weather control, /finally/, @Delmodan cannot stop us now!!
  11. [Contest] The Return of the Wiki Competition! (Closed)

    Someone do a March Ash page so I don't have to maybe you'll get a free clue or something. I'd have to ask finalhazard
  12. MC Name: Aesopian Character's Name: Juniper Brambleblood Character's Age: 90 Character's Race: Halfling What magic(s) will you be learning?: Communion and Control Teacher's MC Name: Mitt0 Teacher's RP Name: Valor Caerme'onn Do you have a magic(s) you are dropping due to this app? If so, link it: No Do you agree to keep the MT updated on the status of your magic app by using the Magic List Errors topic?: Yes Have you applied for this magic on this character before, and had it denied? If so, link the app: No
  13. Minecraft Name: AesopianDiscord: GE #1655Time-zone: ESTDo you, or have you held, any other staff positions: Event Team on Rise of Kings. Where do you grab inspiration from: I mostly draw inspiration from old forum roleplays and random D&D resource packs (Goblinpunch and that ilk). To a lesser extent I draw inspiration from old RTS games, such as WCIII and Starcraft.What are your current list of characters, and are you willing to sacrifice any: Current characters are Ti'gobser, Imatul Ordl, and Juniper Brambleblood. I'd sacrifice Imatul for pretty much whatever. Juniper would be replaced under particular circumstances. Ti'gobser, is, of course, off the table for PK. What race, or group, do your events best cater to: My events cater to the public at large. I would especially like to run some for Halflings, and to the nation-groups generally left untouched (e.g. Haria or Sutica). I tend to shy away from Kharajyr events since I can't get their accent. What do you believe are the key factors for a successful event: The key factors to a successful event are mystery (usually), challenge, and reward. Barring the conclusion of an eventline, mystery should always remain about the story's future, and its principle characters. This drives exploration. Challenge and reward, as factors, are very intertwined. They make the players feel as though they have overcome something, and feel as though, beyond just pride, they have achieved something for it. Challenges don't necessarily have to be through combat -- puzzles or roleplay tasks also work. Rewards don't have to be functional -- relics or simple trinkets of times past can also be offered.What strengths would you bring to the team: I have multiple years of minecraft event team experience. I'm very dedicated when it comes to ensuring events come off high-quality, and are accessible to most. I have a decent understanding of a few types of lore, but my largest knowledge-base is probably for those lore pieces I wrote myself.Why do you want to be part of the team: So, right now, when I help with running any events, I need to screenshot the permission of the event manager I'm helping so that the GMs will do things I tell them to do. It'd be nice to not have to do that anymore. Create three distinct event scenarios based on the servers lore that you would organize: As per my discussions with Final and aerial, my first and second event scenarios consist of the Awaken My Hate and travelling merchant events, which I was closely involved with the creation of. My third event scenario deals with the enormous skeletons scattered in eastern Asul, though it can be adapted to work in Tahn's deserts or mesa as well. Simply put, this is an excavation. Players can provide resources and labor (likely through a warp sign to the mines), which contribute to progressing the excavation. At certain thresholds of labor and materials gathered, the excavation site can be deepened into the earth, with the addition of scaffolding and other flavor structures. Over time, players may begin to uncover ancient ruins, battlegrounds, etc. This provides the opportunity to deliver to those players event item trinkets or ancient texts, offering background to other ongoing eventlines, or for Axios at large. How long do you plan to be able to work on the team: I plan to be able to work on the team over the summer. This is during the weekdays from 5PM onward, and during the entire day on weekends. I may be sporadically active during the semester, but less so than during the summer. Tell me a joke: arockstar is the ET lead.
