    A New Look at Nation Rules

    15 man raids feels a bit much. Like yeah you said "defenders have no limit" but the limit will be "who's at school/work/otherwise busy and can't get on right now to deal with goons" so like.. upping the limit is only going to make people saltier.

    Enough is Enough.

    GMs warned another player for toxicity, when they were attempting to explain their side of a story. The player made no insults toward anyone and although they were frustrated, they were not rude throughout the discussion of the issue. The other party however, called this player a ***** oocly and said they wanted to kill them iRP for OOC reasons. He received no such warning. Please just sort it out, this is beyond a joke.

It is essentially the ability to reach out into the nature surrounding a Druid and to communicate on an intimate level. This initially requires deep meditation to utilise, whereupon the newly-Attuned may listen and reply to flora. After practice and development, less time is required to connect and the ability extends to animals as well, though the communication is limited to the intellect of the target and how advanced the Druid is in Communion. Control builds upon the foundations laid by Communion. With the ability to speak to nature, the Druid makes requests of it to perform certain interactions, the intention usually being to aid in their duties. One may request that a seed sprout, for vines to retreat, to sooth the fearful rage of a wolf. The scope of this ability is likewise tied to its development by the practicing Druid, with the ability to have a tree move for example, requiring an advanced level of Control and likely demanding a great deal of effort on the part of the Druid. This Gift never guarantees absolute control over nature, its name being something of a misnomer; instead it is most powerful and successful when used in harmony with nature. Write up a lesson that your character would give to a student: The Autumn Druid sits amongst the long grass of the Grove, a light breeze passes through the canopy overhead. Opposite her, another Mali sits cross-legged and mirrors her posture. “Do you recall the sensations of standing within a Fairy Ring, Mal’onn?” comes her voice, serene and peaceful. Her eyes are closed, her breathing gentle. “I do.” His eyes are also closed, meditating deeply. “Ayla.. then as you find yourself reaching a place of peace and balance within yourself, I’d like you to push outward. As if you were melting down and spreading out amongst the soil and the grass. As if you were no longer the Mali sitting before me, but instead merging the world around you.” The student’s face flickers with concentration briefly, before his expression becomes one akin to realisation. A single tear trickles down his cheek. “Marayla. This is Communion, Brother.. When you’re ready, I’d like you to push out further against the wall of noise.” After a moment to gather his strength, the Mali’s features reflect his concentration as he hears the surrounding whispers become clearer. Individual voices, rather than an indistinct hum. “You will discover that this is exhausting for you right now, Brother.. Fear not, your strength will grow with time and nurturing,” she dipped her head with a small, but proud smile. “Now, I’d like you to move your focus unto this seed here,” she continued, moving her palm to rest against the ground, before tipping a tiny granule-like seed onto the soil. “It’s.. hard to find it.. Uh, see it?” “Do not look for it as if with your eyes, instead listen for it.. Feel for it.” The newly-Attuned Mali’s brow furrows with increased concentration. “It’s.. small.. Tiny. Sleeping?” “Ayla, the life within slumbers. Listen to it. Ask it what it will become” His head dips, eyes screwing up a little. “A tulip.” “Ti, very good.. Now then, I’d like for you to usher it into growth,” Autumn replies, carefully pressing the seed into the soil with her fingertip. “It is time for it to awaken and bloom.” The Mali’s expression tenses as he struggles to push into the seed. “Hold it in your focus, as if you held it gently in your hands. Whisper to it.” Beneath the soil, the seed stirs. “Sulian.. Keep going.” The soil parts, making way for a small fresh green shoot. “I- I can’t it’s,” the student gasps. “Breathe Mal’onn.. Carefully pull away from the seed, and gather yourself.” After a long few minutes of silence, the Mali opens his eyes with a weary expression, his shoulders slumping. “I’m sorry Sister.. I tried but-” “Worry not, you have many years ahead of you to practice and nurture your Gifts Brother. You are but a sapling.” The Druid interrupted with a kind tone and a small smile. “Thank you Sister.” Do you have a magic(s) you are dropping due to this app?

    LaffenOutLoud's Application Team Application

    Good bean, always very pleasant to talk to and has a lot of enthusiasm for roleplay. Always asking questions about how lore or magic works, to better his understanding of things and improve his roleplay. I feel Laff's attitude is something that all players could learn from and which new players would benefit from greatly. +1

    Amending Spriggan Shelving

    I've only seen Spriggans become more popular in the past few months. To shelve them for "barely being played" seems like there's been an oversight somewhere.

    The Maelstrom Circle

    The Autumn Druid nods gently while reading. "I see many of these tenants and intentions mirrored in my own teachings and understandings... There is more work still then, to bring peace and Balance to the Order."

  11. ~*~ Flowing through all things, there is Balance ~*~ ay'salum Brother Koi, Your recent writings certainly make for an interesting read. I am woe to point out however, that several things appear to have escaped your attention if only through the deepness of your thought. For you are correct that Drui must not fear extremes, nor violence and that there is both much joy and energy to be found in passion. I fear however that your concentration upon passion alone has led you to a misguided conclusion. For us to guard the Balance, we must first understand it. That there is passion in nature yes, but also peace. After the thunderstorm comes the quiet and stillness, rejuvenation after destruction. After the passion of the hunt, there is the peace and reverence. When the quarry escapes the hunter, it retreats and knows peace again. This peace soon gives way to passion once more. There is chaos, the fight for survival is a tangled web of predators and prey, but there is order in nature also. We need not look far to see the way in which ants or bees organise themselves, the wolf and its pack, the meerkat who rear their young collectively. Chaos and hunger are not constants, we can see this in the lion or the wolf who does no harm to the deer or gazelle when its hunger is sated. Order is born from chaos, and will be consumed by it, only to rise again. Least of all, would I dissuade you from the power of your emotions. Among my Seed, we know of the torture suppressing one's emotions inflicts upon the Spirit, but that discipline is also necessary. Our Gifts respond well to the invocation of our emotions, but without the serenity and calm afforded to us by meditation, we could not develop our Gifts at all. We Drui are all wardens of the Balance, and we must therefore understand the Balance within ourselves also. There is passion, yet peace There is serenity, yet emotion There is chaos, yet order igne ito, ehya hileia leyun ito, ehya ayilun Tiuth ito, ehya Heial You are quite right, that to fall to stagnation is to surrender to the comforts of a city, where nature struggles to dwell. That to protect without teaching one to protect themselves is irresponsible, is to teach that there will always be help when this is not always possible. We must also remember however, that there is a diversity of strength. That your strength is my strength, and my wisdom is your wisdom. Cooperation is natural also and to forsake it for individualism alone is short-sighted. We are to serve, that is the purpose of our Gifts and Attunement, and to pursue victory without the guidance afforded us by peace and serenity is to forsake the peace that the Aspects grant us also. To listen only to the absolute primal. When there is no absolute in nature. Flowing through all, there is Balance There is no peace without a passion to create There is no passion without peace to guide Knowledge stagnates without the strength to act Power blinds without the serenity to see There is freedom in life There is purpose in death Nature is all things and we are Nature I would not have you walk from the path you have made for yourself, but I would have you meditate upon it. To open your mind to the passion and the peace, the serenity and the emotion, chaos and order. il'hileia maehr'ehya Sister Autumn, Nivndil Duskhollow

    Same happens with seeds w/r chickens. You get wheat seeds back, regardless of what you used to breed them with.

    This is actually a cool way to introduce antagonistic forces for Drui to have to contend with. I'll be preparing my anti-draoi bat though. ;)
