  1. "Some say Timothée was the best bard alive." The Bardic Spirits Present In order to honor our fallen bard, the Bardic Spirits of the Amphitheatre have decided to hold a celebration, one of song, drink, and dance, three vital ingredients in our remembrance of a true master of the arts! Everyone is invited to pay homage to this great man, whether it be through performance or your role as an audience member! As long as the air is filled laughter and joy, the fields filled with food and drink, and the echoes of song in the air, hope and passion shall remain in our hearts ever-strong! WHAT IS THIS? Our late friend and musician, Timothée, was always fond of improvising tunes on the spot, whether they be about his beloved wine bottle, or his grand travels! And so, the Bardic Spirits have decided to hold an improvisational tournament in his memory. The Flyting Tournament will consist of a simple competition. Much like a Bard-Off, musicians will be challenged to improvise a quality, lyrical, and rhythmic song on the spot! However, there is a catch: we will be asking audience volunteers to shout out a word and, whatever the word may be, our bards will be required to include the topic in their tune in some way, shape, or form. Judging will be based solely on the reaction of the crowd (for to a bard, the only judgment that matters is that of the audience). Whoever garners the best reaction will be deemed winner of that round. And whoever ultimately creates the most impressive music shall be praised as musician of great talent, blessed by the late Timothée himself! May the best bard win! WHERE IS THIS? In the Amphitheatre, on the road to Aegrothond and near Siramenor WHEN IS THIS? 4PM PST /7PM EST on Saturday, 8/8/20
  2. Upon hearing the news of the esteemed bard’s death, the Songbird was filled with shock and disarray. He shook his head in denial, softly whispering, ”I had just spoken to him... just the other day... We shared a drink, a tale, and a song...” With little else to do but accept the death of an old friend, the elf took out his harp, the very same with which he played his last song for Timothée, and strummed a melody, the same wistful, bright tune he played for his friend at the tavern. ”♫ The death of a poet, so full of life ♫ ♫ Hits hard in our hearts, in times of strife ♫ ♫ But sing, ti, we shall, in great memory ♫ ♫ To our great friend, our muse Timothée ♫” Wiping the tears from his eyes, it could be seen there was no frown upon his lips. No, there was only a smile, one last display of appreciation for his friend who blessed the world with so much happiness and joy. Long live the bard, forever in our hearts.
  3. When I first joined years ago, I know the monks were a thing but they never approached me. I know it’s important to reach out, but lots of players are too nervous to bother someone they don’t know. So, especially in WS chat, it’d be pretty useful for monks to directly approach new players who seem confused, even with just a /msg. Secondly, the monks really are super mysterious and confusing. They live at Cloud Temple, but they have little to no lore or reason for being there or for knowing the lands. I think this adds to the issue that most monk guidance has ooc chatter; there’s little to go off of irp. Thus, I think it’d be helpful to establish a more structured base for the monks, give them some more intriguing lore, and have them be more involved in the world itself. They can retain their neutrality and even have that be enforced ooc, but I personally believe that players would feel like they’re actually learning to participate in the server better when they’re interacting with a people who are involved. Likewise, it would give monks more of an incentive to rp as their characters and generally be around for when new players need help. A third idea, that could be more flexibly changed and would probably require more thought, would be a volunteer system for established players to guide a new player. Some sort of sign-up or mentor system located near the Cloud Temple (or in the forums/Discord) that new players could voluntarily sign up for themselves. I think that would take a load off monks who don’t have all the time in the world, and allow new players some more freedom in the kind of help they receive, especially since they’re already interacting with grounded members of the playerbase. The volunteers could focus on general info or be nation specific, allow the new player to establish themselves in a community, and the new players would have square choice in who guides them, to avoid any nation pressure or bias. By all means, this system may not be perfect and could use much refining, as most of it is just thoughts spewed from my mind within the last five minutes, but I think something of the sort would open up the resources a new player can access and encourage many to explore the world alongside someone who willingly introduces them to what they’re most familiar with. The monk guidance system is flawed, but it’s a concept that could grow into something great. I appreciate the concern and efforts to improve on it, so keep it up!
  4. Yesss, bardmancy! Love the lore, love the magic effects (and frazzle), and love the Amphitheatre
  5. Revin Songbird glances at the note, during his occasional visit to the halfling village. ”A drinking night? How have I not attended one of these yet?” The musician made a mental note to pop in at the designated time.
  6. Revin peered intently at the flyer, scratching his sideburns. ”Ah, so this is the competition I’ve heard about... I’m a little rusty, but it could be fun. For the practice.” He gave a firm nod as he wrote a quick reply, sending it off through his colorfully feathered hawk.
  7. Revin Songbird chuckles at reading about the Fountain of Eternal Elderness. "Seems like such a fountain would serve quite useful to quell the arguments between the 'aheral and 'ame."
  8. Revin Songbird scratches his sideburns in thought. He had traveled Arcas and made himself a living for a decade before his current age of 40. To set a concrete minimum age to represent maturity of adulthood was foolish. "We've got to rely less blindly on law and and tradition, and instead use our own judgement," he muttered. "Besides, just because one attains legal adulthood does not automatically merit them any leniency should they demonstrate incapability to express maturity, just as many above 50 still struggle to act civilly. It only allows those who have proven worthy of respect to aid the nation accordingly."
