      Enforce a system where you only have a certain amount of lives. If you die too much, both in pvp and crp, you must pk. Stops people from being heroic real quick

      Honestly if you don't push it and don't do silly things your characters barely die. Like, none of my characters ever died - besides those I actively sent into their own death.

       

      But that's because my characters value their own life and don't raise the sword thinking they can win alone against two people. No smart person would take up a fight against an enemy without outnumbering them in a world where frost witches, powerful mages, undead and other kinds of creature commonly run around.

  2. The Way of Lomahnihsm _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Called are we, to the sublime. Infinite, is our potential, and to overcome, is our charge. It is the conviction of our Silver Soul’s that will lead us higher. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Table of Contents Purity Lomahnihst Rites _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Purity What is Purity? There have been many interpretations offered regarding the nature of Purity, though there has yet to be a definitive answer given, from which we can teach our youth and go forth. I shall, in this treatise, pronounce the ultimate interpretation, if my analysis of what Larihei Lomahnih is, holds. If indeed, as I have previously argued, Larihei, is of divine nature, and our souls are that of thilln, then Purity is a metaphysical construct- it is not something which can be empirically studied, nor can it be weighed, nor can it be counted. Though, being Pure demands that you belong to the category of Mali’aheral, for it is only those who have souls of silver. Historically, the question “Thilln ito nae’leh?” has been premised upon two things; Blood and Mind. Are you of Pure Mali’aheral lineage? And do you subscribe to the teachings of Larihei - maehr’sae hiylun’ehya. This is premised correctly - being of Pure lineage and being of Pure mind are necessary to one being Pure. However, Purity in and of, by definition, cannot just be those two things. Rather, Purity is the condition of one’s soul. Following maehr’sae hiylun’ehya provides us with many benefits. Firstly, it is the best philosophy by which to live our lives. Secondly, and more importantly, it is what maintains the thilln of our soul. It is what keeps it thilln. The Impure of the world do not live by our philosophy, as such their calling towards perfection - towards Larihei is diminished. They care not for her nor our ancient ways. As a Mali’aheral slowly begins to withdraw from our lifestyle, they grow more and more accustomed to lesser ways and vices. Whereas when one resides amongst Pure kin, pursuing a Pure life, one's Silver Soul is in its Purest and healthiest state. Given the immaterial nature of the Soul, its ‘thilln-ness’, is not observable or knowable to us, though when our fates are decided at the end of our lives, it is The Silver Maiden alone, who will see us for what we are, whether we have lived a life worthy of being graced by Her presence. To be Pure, is to have an untarnished Silver Soul. Purity then, is the endeavor to maintain the Thilln of one’s Soul. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Lomahnihst Rites Given the utmost importance of maintaining all aspects of our Purity; The Soul, The Mind and The Body, it is important from youth, that we engage with a culture that emphasizes these very things. As such, I have devised several Rites which all Lomahnihsts are obligated and required to undergo - to both maintain their Purity and to continue to live out a life of Purity. The Rite of Sanctification Upon reaching adulthood, all Lomahnihsts shall undergo The Rite of Sanctification, to be observed by their fellow Society members. This Rite is a requirement for all expectant Avernan, wherein following a ceremony, they shall be submerged in pools of Gold, effectively placing them in a state of ‘renewal’. As Larihei offered the gift of rebirth to our ancestors, we shall offer all initiates the ability to cleanse themselves of previous transgressions against the Lomahnih way. This Rite shall conclude the initiation of the Avernan as full members of The Silver Society of Larihei Lomahnih. The Rite of Marriage As one meanders throughout life, having come of age, one naturally has the urge to create a family - to continue the ancient legacy of one's ancestors. It is without question that the familial unit is the fundamental unity within our blessed society. Therefore, both culturally and civilly, one is obligated to continue our way of life, and so when two wish to become one, they shall be wed in ceremony, before their peers, receiving the pools of Gold together, serving as both a renewal of their promise to be pure, and as a promise now to each other. The Rite of Dying To die, is a consequence of having lived, and as one nears the end of ones life, the last act of purification is granted. A ceremony, presided over by the Masaneyir, and attended by the family of the one who’s time has come to an end, shall be held wherein they shall be purified once more, by the blessed waters. Then, their bodies shall be cremated and laid to rest within the crypts of our ancestors. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Maehr’sae Hiylun’ehya Masaneyir Braxus Ni’leya

  4. The Lomahnihst Tradition _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ It was in Great Caverns deep, that the greatest bounty of the ‘thill would be found. Laden in pools of Gold, were callings of the divine, a means to a greater purpose. A higher way to live, granted to us by the Silver Maiden. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Table of Contents Divinity Apotheosis Haelun _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Divinity Mali’thill do not hold the view that there is no deity, but rather that it is irrational to worship an invisible deity. Furthermore, Mali’thill believe in the existence of a creator, and so the idea of a deific figure is not one of controversy. Reason speaks to another tradition of the Mali’thill, that of worship and veneration. Though today, we shun the worshiping of deities, this perhaps, was not always so. As a son of the Mother of Thilln, I hold that Larihei Lomahnih is not merely mortal, but of higher origin. I do not hold this lightly, nor have I reached this conclusion with ease. I shall lay out my reasoning for this belief here in what I consider to be feats of divinity. A painting depicting Larihei amongst the heavens Foresight Larihei was Malin’s most senior advisor, having aided him greatly in both the defeat of Iblees and in the founding of his Kingdom, and it was she who warned him of the impending danger of the Word Altars, which eventually led to the warping of forests and the dangerous magics of the Fae. The forests would grow wild and feral, killing many elves. Malin, horrified at this, outlawed and buried deep, these Aspectic altars of power. Creation It was Larihei, already bearing the physical and mental characteristics of a Mali’aheral - though they did not yet exist, who led our ancestors to the Golden Pools, where they would eventually become the first of the Mali’aheral - reborn in the image and likeness of Larihei Lomahnih. Gifts Larihei gave to the Mali’aheral, many great gifts. The most senior of these gifts were received by the Mali’aheral upon their bathing in the pools - their Silver Soul. Secondary to this, were the powers of the Void. Thirdly, she gave to our ancestors, the very code and philosophy which guides us still, to this day, after millenia - maehr’sae hiylun’ehya. Sacrifice It was the mother of Thilln who sacrificed her mortality - her physical and worldly presence, in the creation of the portals which would save our kin from certain doom, leaving behind the mortal plane - separating herself from her children, so that they may live. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Apotheosis Lomal the traitor led an assault upon Larihei and her flock, as such the mother of thilln ordered her kin to retreat, not wanting her children to suffer more bloodshed. She created for them, a portal to a new world, where they would be safe from Lomal and his mutants. Half of her children followed, the other remained behind, though Larihei was not to be found in either realm - she had vanished. A painting depicting Larihei’s apotheosis Larihei had suffered enough. She had fulfilled her worldly purpose, though unaware of her nature, her flock were safe and had her teachings to live by - it was her time now, to return to the Creator, one of his finest instruments, a divine extension of Purity, Perfection - Grief. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Haelun In her creation of the Mali’aheral Larihei wept, grief stricken - for in their endeavor of attaining perfection, her children would suffer the ills of a lesser world. A painting depicting Larihei weeping Larihei, kae'len cruan sulier, ay'kae vallumer'ehya Larihei, Behold my pain, and weep for me Elihnsil, Elberr, kina'ehya, The Spear, The Bow, and death, laean kae wynne myumiereyae. these bring me no joy. ay'nae'leh sirame k' taliiyhe, ay'elcihil k' cruare for your honor I bleed, for the city I suffer il'iylkarim, mirueln thill'ehya ito kae'leh With this day, I am of silver and red. This is the Ancient Creed of the Sillumiran - the Weeping Blades of Haelun’or, invoking Larihei’s attention to their suffering - a mother to weep for the losses she would endure. A mother is one who creates, who gives birth to new life. A mother is one who suffers greatly, so that her children may live a better life. Larihei, creator of Blessed Haelun’or, she who gave birth to elMali’thill is the eternal mother, and to her we owe our lives - to her, we give praise and worship, for without her, we are nothing. When at last, we are fated to meet our end, as Larihei embraced us when we emerged from the Golden Pools, born anew, she will embrace our Silver Souls when we are relinquished from our mortal coil. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Maehr’sae Hiylun’ehya Masaneyir Braxus Ni’leya

The Silver Society of Larihei Lomahnih Est. 3rd of The Amber Cold, Year 85 - S.A _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The denizens of Malinor brought fire and ruin to the homes of the Mali’thill. Violence became the language of those Mali who were bitter and jealous, and they were quick to greet their Silver cousins. Thus the path became clear - it would be an Exodus of the Thilln, that would seal the fate of Larihei’s flock. No more, would they hail Malin, No longer would they suffer the ills of Malinor.

Thus, when Larihei bathed in the Golden Pools, through her very being and will, she willed it that all who bathe within these pools, shall be born anew, in her image - the transformation of their vulgar soul into that of a Silver Soul. The Mali’aheral, therefore differ in kind as opposed to degree from other Mali. It is this Silver Soul, which directs all Mali’thill to Larihei and her teachings. To quote Ellir’siol; “It has called to us. A dormant power, a soft undertone of purpose, faint but wishing to be stronger, has awakened beneath the skin of the pure-blooded High Elves.” Though unknown to her at the time, this ‘dormant power’, was indeed the instruction of her very being, as willed by her Silver Soul, which ultimately led her to Haelun’or in Asulon.

They shall live by the teachings of Larihei and should it be necessary, die in defense of those teachings.

      You've always been in Hnor right? Its definitely been far more of a cesspool in the past for human nations. 2012-2014 you would have people literally show up at each other's houses after doxxing them. One person was stalked onto a train to have their picture taken by another lotcer. People would ddos each other even up until 2018-2019 when the booting sites were taken down or w/e happened. Hnor might not have been exposed to it but the server has been in a far far worse state than it is right now. Actual death threats, pizzas sent to houses, would not be surprised if people were swatted. 

       

      OOC schemes have anyways been the backbone of human rp, though I cannot speak for elven or other rp.

      I always come back to Haelun'or, but I've been around since Aegis, was with Courland for a few years too. I agree with what you're saying, but the spirit of the server has changed. That kinda stuff went on back then but never really affected the larger server, whereas now, all of this "I don't like your community, I'm going to destroy them" shit is mainstream.

      Twi's big mistake was that she never tried to take over Haelun'or RP'ly, it was always just "Give me what I want or die". She never RP'd with us outside of that. She went about it the completely wrong way and aligned herself with the wrong people.

      Also, everyone has OOC aims and schemes. The difference between what Twi did and your average OOC plotter is that Twi was hellbent on destroying the Haelun'orian community, as was Kiwi, as was Ryan, and this - is what the staff appears to have taken issue with.

      Well, I'd like to see Nor'asath crumble, doesn't mean I will act on it in RP. It's just gonna happen eventually anyway. (Atleast with the current 'leadership')

  8. Literally was just forced into a discord group where I am now being once again, forced into an action - that being to give my support via comment and + 1 to this submission, which I do so happily and freely, of my own accord.
  9. I can only really speak to the Haelun'or conflict from my own perspective, but it was clear from day one, that the motivating factors in taking over Haelun'or were entirely OOC'ly based, with a sprinkling of RP to justify those actions. While this isn't necessarily a bad thing, it turned into one when it was made clear that Twi was going to stop at literally nothing to become the PRO of Haelun'or, even if that meant the destruction of a 10 year old community. Twi could've went about things so differently, and I recall being kind of shocked at her willingness to straight up try to brute-force her way through to what she wanted. At an IRP debate that was scheduled, not only did she show up late, but she then refused to debate (now, everyone knew that this debate would work out in favor of Haelun'or, but that's not the point) and the only words she spoke icly were "Surrender", before she ran without RP'ing and SS'd out. From day one, it was either "Give me your Nation or Die.". This kind of thing, in my 10+ years of playing on this server, never really happens icly, unless there are OOC factors involved. Never did she try work things out diplomatically or peacefully, it was always "Give me what I want or suffer", and this of course translated into the OOC smear campaign against not only myself, but the entirety of the Haelunorian community. It was often said to me that I, as NL at the time, was responsible for the actions of my community. If this is the case, then the same applies to Twi, and I can guarantee you, that we received enormous amounts of abuse and harassment. While I am not against a hostile takeover of a nation, it must be done irp'ly and it should be motivated irp'ly - with the RP being more than just a means of justifying an OOC plot. Unfortunately, this response is entirely accurate in its portrayal of how Twi acted during the Haelun'or conflict.

      I dunno if this is widely known or not, but I remember when I was on WT some pastes would be far more complex and time consuming than others. We even had to take the entire server down to do some. Perhaps the difference is in that? I am not sure, of course, but try to be understanding to the staff. It's a tough job.

      @DisheartenedAbsolutely, my only gripe is that we've had a warclaim declared on us whilst actively being in one, essentially stun-locking us, whilst at the same time being told that we could paste our new build in, only now to be told that we're not allowed to. It's the lack of consistency that bothers me.

  12. To Decry Madness An Announcement to the Silver State of Haelun’or 2nd of Sun’s Smile, Year 83 - S.A _____________________________________________________________________________________________ MALI’THILL, Laurir Usamea An’asul has put a question to elmalauriran and by extent, to the Blessed State of Haelun’or, and this is a simple question based on two simple premises. “Should Homosexuality be legalized in Haelun’or, provided that one has reached the age of infertility and has contributed offspring to the State?” While at first glance it may be appealing to consider this question seriously, I urge you to disregard these grievous ramblings for reasons that I shall now make apparently clear by way of logical argumentation. The argument as presented by Laurir An’asul explicitly suggests that homsexuality, which is unmistakingly regarded as impure, ceases to be so when an individual has both reached the age of infertility and has provided children to the State. This individual, is now free to engage in homosexual acts and relationships. This is absurd and it is quite clear that Laurir An’asul lacks in abundance, even a basic understanding of our philosophy on Marriage, Love, and Sexual Relations. I recommend to you, a book entitled ‘The Dichotomy of Lewdness’, written by none other than Malaurir Lucion Sullas. It is beyond the intellect of any Mali’thill to seriously consider whether or not Homosexuality ought to be legalized, and by extend, accept as something ‘good’ or indeed ‘normal’. Given this, I shall not waste my time arguing against it. All I aim to do is expose the absurdity behind the logical argument presented by Laurir An’asul. I must apologize to you, dearest reader for what I shall now lay before your eyes, however it is a necessary evil to expose the danger which Laurir An’asul wishes to place our blessed society into the hands of. ________________________________________________________________________ Consider the following three scenarios. An individual has reached the age of infertility and has provided two children to the State. This individual has an attraction to an Uruk. In fact, this individual would go even further, claiming to ‘love’, this Uruk. Why should they not be allowed to marry? For this Mali’aheral has reached the age of infertility and has provided children to the State? Are they not entitled now, to engage in any and all acts? This reasoning leads to an acceptance of Interracial Relations. An individual has reached the age of infertility and has provided two children to the State. This individual has an attraction to their sibling. In fact, this individual would go even further, claiming to ‘love’ their sibling. Why should they not be allowed to marry? For these two Mali’aheral have reached the age of infertility and have both provided two children to the State? This reasoning leads to an acceptance of Incestuous Relations. Two married individuals have both reached the age of infertility and have both provided two children each to the State. These individuals, though married to other people, have an attraction to one another. In fact, these individuals go even further, claiming to ‘love’ each other. Why should they not be allowed to marry? For these Mali’aheral have reached the age of infertility and have provided children to the State. This reasoning leads to an acceptance of Physical Fraternization outside of Marriage. ________________________________________________________________________ It is thus, that I request the immediate summons and subsequent trial of Laurir Usamea An’asul for knowingly and willfully encouraging other Mali’aheral to violate both elMAEHR’SAE HIYLUN’EHYA and THE SILVER LAW Maehr’sae Hiylun’ehya ________________________________________________________________________ Signed, Malaurir Braxus Ni’leya
  13. "Absolutely NOT" States the Malaurir Ni'leya with disgust as he concludes his reading of the missive.
  14. A missive is propagated within the Capital of Haelun’or To Prophesize 3rd of Sun’s Smile, Year 75 - S.A _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ MALI’THILL, Silence will deafen the streets of our city as darkness envelops the once roaring hearths of our homes, and in memory only, shall laughter and cries of joy dwell. Ruin and decay shall come swiftly when the scowling winds mock our once great Bastion of Silver as the sands draw closer, blinding those who had not the sense to shield their eyes. Unnumbered, shall the tears of our people be and the world shall set its back upon us. No sound nor echo of our demise shall be heard. Quietly, shall those wicked with ignorance go into the night, vanishing under the light of distant stars. Their triumphant glee will turn to horror - though too late is the hour of their recognition. And when at last the gales subside and bereft now, is our Haelun’or of life - YOU will have made a crypt of my home. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ AND IT SHALL BE SO _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
  15. The former Maheral of the Silver State of Haelun'or, Malaurir Braxus Ni'leya shakes his head.
