  1. Thesis on the Nature of Divine Intervention by Brother Napoleon The nature of divine intervention is a double-edged sword. Firstly, I do not wish for my words to be misconstrued; that divine intervention does not occur. The messenger angel delivering Horen the scroll of Virtue, the agent of GOD bestowing blessings upon the four brothers, saintly miracles that occur from beyond-the-grave; miracles occur. However, many pious men I’ve seen have used divine intervention as a crutch. For instance, I was once drinking milk in an Elven settlement with the men of Lorraine. I exclaimed my fear that the Elves might poison the men of God through the milk, and the men of Lorraine claimed that God would “protect them from the poison” through some form of divine intervention. When Man does this; expects divine handouts on a silver platter rather than solving their issues with their own strength and cunning, it poisons the mind into laziness and sloth. Miracles should be a desperate cry for aid when all else is lost, not a crutch. My second point as to how man should not rely on divine handouts, is not only the effects of the reliance, but also unrealistic expectations that come with it. I am of the opinion that true, undeniable intervention does not happen often enough to facilitate a reasonable dependence on it. Miracles, such as the ones performed by saints, aren’t as explicitly supernatural compared to something such as witchcraft. For instance, one of Saint Amyas of Yore’s miracles, was that his corpse smelled consistently akin to roses. Compare that to the summoning of hulking, horned demons, the hucking of huge fireballs and blinking through space and time… and it becomes clear that miracles are far more subtle in their power. This makes it far more difficult to determine whether a miracle is truly a miracle, or the invention of superstition. However, if one looks at the canon records and looks over the instances of genuine divine intervention known to man, and how often they occur, one can conclude that true divine intervention is rare, in proportion to the population of mankind. Therefore, any instance of alleged divine intervention should be taken with a grain of salt in order to determine the sincerity of it. Most of all, however, mankind must come to a realization that their problems cannot and should not be solved exclusively through divine intervention. Finally, I am of the opinion that God would not wish for his flock to rely on his intervention. If you give a man a fish, he will eat for a day. However, if you teach a man to fish, he will eat forever. What benevolent entity would not want his subjects to eat forever? God created the world as a test for the free-thinking souls that abide in it, for these souls to prove their character through hard work, virtue, and service. Without difficulty, none of these attributes could be proven. If a man’s faith is rewarded in the form of a miracle, so be it. However, the dependence on miracles is a terrible thing. Furthermore, the number of miracles that have been proven real by the Canonist Church compared to the population of mankind proves that it’s not realistic to expect a miracle, mathematically speaking. Despite all this, there is a silver lining to this, brothers and sisters: the strength, and intelligence God has placed in every man and woman is a miracle in and of itself. When faced with an issue, do not moan and wail of how The Creator has forsaken you. Instead, think of the gifts and talents you’ve been granted by Him, and use them to solve the problem, for the cause of good.

      NotEvilAtAll

      Agreed, but only if u make Bom Tombadil into a Necromancer hobbit

  4. You're pretty cool, don't come to Holm tonight.

  5. OOC: I hate to be the devil's advocate, however I vividly remember killing your character IRP. Characters do not remember their deaths or the circumstances surrounding their deaths. You'll need to edit the part of him escaping and informing the Count if you wish for the scenario to be compliant and canon.
  6. Gonna change my user to _CoatAndTimbz_

  8. Wanted: Edward von Bergenheim, the Physician of Amberham Threat level: Hard Suggested party number: Any number of competent operatives Description of beast(s): Edward was a seemingly regular healer at a clinic in Amberham, a humble city in Aeldin. However, he had begun a string of murders throughout the next 4 years that would stir terror within the stone city. The body count was placed at 57 upon his arrest. Guards had cracked down on the merchants who had provided the plague doctor the tools necessary to commit the murders, and stormed the clinic. Within his room were various sketches and journals, clearly showing how he methodically recorded his prey's lifestyle. It is unknown as to why he committed the murders, though many people presumed it was for medical research, for the guards found the dumped bodies to be completely hollowed out of organs, brain, etc. Whatever the case may be, Edward was to be transported to an asylum for psychological study, to probe whether the murderous doctor was in suitable condition to participate in trial. After spending six months in the asylum, a mass break-out was staged, Edward being witnessed killing multiple guards as he made his escape. 25 years passed, Edward being aged around 60 at this point. Many presumed he had simply stopped killing and laid low. However, in Axios, murders surprisingly similar to those found in Amberham were discovered. Aeldinic magistrates have contacted officials of the various governments of Axios, declaring a reward for the plague doctor's swift death. Edward's Modus Apparatus is quite simple. He uses his charismatic demeanor to assimilate himself with the common folk. If he sees prey that catches his eye, he methodically observes and studies their lifestyle. When he feels he has enough knowledge to strike, he does so. Edward works quite a bit like a cat-burglar, scaling buildings and rooftops to gain advantageous access points even in his older age, as was observed by the locations his prey were murdered. His weapon of choice tends to be a syringe containing poison, the doctor being an ample alchemist. Though some crime scenes have shown Edward using a scalpel or even a knife if he is spotted. Overall, Edward is very sophisticated and calculated in his murders, therefore extreme caution is suggested. Edward has aged quite a bit from the last 25 years, so therefore a description cannot be provided. Location: Tends to flock towards major cities and hubs where prey is frequent Rewards: 600 minas, though be prepared to provide proof of the deed
  9. An anonymous letter is penned to the Druid whom wrote this fine piece of work. The person whom wrote the letter obviously had a disdain towards Druids, as the contents of letter were: "Is it true that Druids, both male and female don't shave or bathe? Your's truly, Anonymous."
  10. ((Is this still a thing, out of curiousity?))
  11. When a spell is introduced to the physical components, the alchemial signs 'fuse' with the magical energy that's unleashed upon the physical world. The spell gets 'altered' to a limited degree depending on what symbols were used in said casting. Might I argue, there have been a good deal of Magic-Alchemy related submissions in the past that have gotten accepted. Take the Draught of Incite as an example. It deals with the workings of Light and Dark, which is obviously magic related. There was also the Afflicted, which actually ended up getting accepted for an activity trial run. They would have most likely succeeded had Skylez not self-denied the lore. His lore was magic-alchemy related by clearly stating in the lore that the Afflicted parasite that resides within a person slowly but surely gnaws away at their soul. I'd like to disagree. The idea isn't to force people to make 10+ emotes with the detail of an ET/LT, but more so the theme that goes along with it. This lore, by the rituals listed above, involves a great amount a Fairy Tale inspirations, mythical ideals, and perhaps even a pinch of White/Black magic drawn from IRL. The idea is to make Magic, particularly Arcane Magic, more than just a science. Like the lore post says, most (not all) spells that involves herbs and tonics, are only truly effective in pre-meditated rituals. An example would be a group of Necromancers infusing Symbols with their lifeforce to give abominable mutations to a Ghoul or Lich. Now, there are exceptions to this. An example would be a Necromancer fusing ground down Flametongue Root dust pinched in their finger, with a tiny bit of lifeforce. Though keep in mind that with the ideal system I have in mind, every individual spell MUST go through lore in order to be used. Either way, thank you for your support. Thank you for your support, though I'd just like to clarify something. Like I said with Luxury, every spell must go through the LT at said LT's discretion. Therefore, any unfair spells would quickly be rooted out. Spells and rituals that are very powerful (cataclysmic-ally so) must go through an independent lore submission.
