  1. I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think.
  2. Oh dear. The font's getting bigger and bolder.
  3. Unfortunately, good man, I think we'll have to go with Robespierre's take on the French Revolution and the reformation of his country: It must first weather the storms of revolution.
  4. If it's true, then it's not harassment. If it's false, then give some evidence countering it.
  5. Lore Amendment: Plants Can't Have Babies

    Yes, conception, birth, and a child being formed is more complicated than that. It requires a myriad of cells, initially blank stem cells, replicating over time to form the body. Structures take shape, hormones are added, and eventually a baby is ready to pop out. But, this is a fantasy server, and some things are just allowed to happen. Something with much greater impact that can't happen on our lore is Slayer Steel. With metallurgy and alloying metals, the metals need to be of similar size in order to form a matrix which can hold each other together. This has been done before, but by using the metal of another element. One not used on LotC. A plant being able to eat meat in order to get the necessary ingredients for the body to make stem cells and form them is as realistic as gold and iron being an alloy without some sort of go between metal.
  6. Lore Amendment: Plants Can't Have Babies

    So, to those of you wondering how this happens. I've seen a few points brought up, biggest thing is how they do it. The organs of a bryophite all work the same. They aren't terribly different from Descendants, except in having a few extra needs and what makes up their bodies. More sugar, more water, sunlight, and they'll create the moss by entering a trance-like state. Flowers bloom in their hair and they leave pollen from their hands everywhere they can touch. This trance is essentially just them walking around touching things. Another point brought up, which is a good one, is how plants can make flesh and blood. The pregnant bryophite has thought of this. The character's body is craving meat, fat, and milk, for the sole purpose of providing raw material that the body can use to make the baby's body. Other than that, stop belly-aching and crying so much. It's just RP, and most of you likely don't even have to interact with the people involved in it. Stop raining on someone else's RP with something that really isn't a big deal.

    +1. Dude put on good events helping in Mordskov. Ask Once, Lathe, or ScreamingDingo to back that claim up.
  8. [Denied] ET Actor CharlieWhaleSheen

    +1 I approve.
  9. Good at building, and good at running events. +1

    Nice avatar.

    Add Goosey back. I'll also hose him down like the dirty hippie he is. +1
  12. [Denied] [Actor] Warmarcher

    Current Username: Warmarcher Discord(‘You got it’ does not suffice): Sarcof#2491 Timezone(s) you mainly play: CST, although exceptions can be made with sufficient heads-up. GMT-6 What group/nation do you consider to be your main? None of them. Have you held a staff position before? No. Do you currently hold a staff position? Also no. Do you plan on applying for other staff positions? Possibly LM, but most likely not. Have you ever been banned before? If so, how long ago and what reason? No. What style of events do you feel you enjoy creating? (Low Fantasy, High Fantasy, Quests, Dungeons, etc.) I enjoy high fantasy and running quests, as opposed to quick one-offs. However, I do enjoy the occasional quick monster's den. List three factors you feel play a part in a quality event and expand upon them. Story Without a solid story, an event is either something used to get some fast gold, with bounties, or something that doesn't capture someone's attention for very long afterwards. A one-off doesn't need a good story or any backstory, but if you want it to be memorable to a character, that means that slack has to be picked up in other sections, involving characters or rewards. However, it must be fluid, pliant, flexible to change and adapted to the reactions of the characters. Characters The characters shape the roleplay, to some extent. Setting and backstory help, but the players will be acting and reacting in according to the actions and reactions of the characters. The character might be a wyvern, a pack of wendigoes as done by Saveforthememories, a shady dealer or an illuminated priest. They'll be the ones the characters will be working with and fighting, and also the ones driving the story when they get lost. They're what the players are most likely to remember, and if they're bland, stale, or repetitive, the event becomes dull and people are less likely to continue. Motivation When I say motivation, I mean what's driving players in the event. Without a proper driving force, primarily for a long event line, players get burned out and tired and stop playing. You have to reward the players and you can never forget why the event was made, which was for their enjoyment. Which isn't always easy. Which member(s) of the team would you attempt to emulate and why? Grim, oncenoeda, Skylez. I've played with them for a good bit, done several of their events. Pretty good actors to emulate, although they're more low fantasy in their events. Provide three event scenarios, in total, of the style(s) you listed above: The Wandering Trader (1-3) A mysterious figure arrives in town, broad and robed, carrying a pack laden with various wares and holding a strange glowing green lantern held in front by a bent pole.. A tarp is unrolled, some of the more interesting wares laid out for display, however there seems to be more to be offered than just what's seen. On display are various trinkets, including a ruby necklace, a gnarled silver dagger with a shining and ornate emerald, and a simple tea set. More wares lie within his pack, which can be acquired either through speaking with the man about other items to buy, should it come up, or by attempting to kill him and take the wares. Hidden within the pack's lining is a map, carried through thick and thin, leading to a mysterious location... The Mutated Alghoul (3-7) A fell beast, the size of a chort. Elevated from it's normal state and twisted to a madman's desires, this beast is something unseen before. Standing the size of a small house, with the strength to destroy supports holding up structures nearby, and speed to rival the most fleet-footed of characters, this beast is not something to be taken lightly. Spines bristle from it's back and limbs, bones have been hardened and reinforced, the ribs have been extended and flattened, some protruding beneath in sharp ridges, and a natural carapace covers the frame of the creature. It's capable of emitting a thick, green vapor, highly flammable, as a ringed attack in it's immediate space. Spines may be propelled with a tightening of muscles, but most dangerous is it's ability to manipulate the stability of the ground it stands on. With purple arcana arcing from it's hands, the creature can make the ground seem almost liquid in it's fluidity, and can cause it to coil and ripple from it's mass slamming into the ground. This fluidity doesn't persist, however it can also shift the ground in the opposite direction, forming stone within malformed hands. The Ruined Colony (9-15) An effort in being in more than one place at once, this would be the staging grounds for further quests and events beyond the colony into hostile territory with a sinister purpose. Parts of the town lay blocked off by rubble and barricades, difficult to bypass or remove. Each section of the colony must be cleared, new dangers, threats, and mysteries being found in each of the quarantined sections. Within might be found some of the ravaged corpses of the colonists, but far fewer than there should be. Eaten by the new abominations that inhabit this place, or taken for some sinister purpose? What happened here, and what created these monstrosities? Perhaps the answers can be found in the mage's tower floating over the town, or in the old ruins nearby. Why do you wish to become an ET Actor Member? I've been doing events in an around Mordskov, sometimes with an ET supervising, sometimes without. I'd like the tools of an actor at my disposal for it. What strengths would you bring to the team? I've been told I'm a good roleplayer, and people that've played in the small events I've done have commended me for it. What are your weaknesses? Prone to obsession at times. Workaholic when it comes to events, won't stop. How much time could you give to this position in the foreseeable future? School's starting to wrap up, and I usually spend a good bit of time on server.

    +1 He was once part of the ET and performed well. Was kicked for inactivity I believe when he stepped away, as opposed to toxicity or incompetence. And therefore deserves to return.
  14. [Accepted] [ET ACTOR] Attempt number 2

    +1 Man should be returned out of hand given his reputation and history.
  15. [Accepted] [Actor] Swgrclan, 11/7/2017

    +1 Good RP'er, bit focused on spooks.
