We’re a load o’ da zealest zealots dis generation o’ descendants ‘as ever seen - and I intend to remind da lot o’ dem o’ dat. “Now, dis -” Start drawin’ - “- Dis is what I likes to call, ‘Da Stretcher’.” DA STRETCHER [PICTURED: Exemplary ‘Stretcher’ in action] “Anyone got a guess for what dis skah ‘ere does?” INCOHERENT MUMBLES “Exactly. Dis is used on da HUMANS and ELVES dat like keepin’ their mouths closed ‘bout who dey worship, and who’s worshippin’ who. Set ‘em here, pull dem levers and watch ‘em scream.

Dat’s how we get ‘em - just wait ‘till they break, and they’ll give us all da info we need! They’ll start speakin’ eventually.” “Now, it’s a rare thing, dat HUMANS don’t start speakin’ at dis point - they’s not as tough as us Orks.

  4. As a direct quote from a post earlier that was removed,
    ”As much as I’m gonna get called out for this, I will say it nonetheless. I don’t know whether I’ve just been more aware of the staff’s actions as of this map, or if the staff has just gone that far downhill, but past late Axios staff has been a [REDACTED]show. Call it bias, call it whatever you want – but the iron fist of the staff has only gotten tighter, and their bias has only gotten stronger.”

      And I’m sure Wolfkite AND Veist won’t receive any form of punishment, even though the evidence is clear. Will also be surprised if orcs receive any form of compensation, but apparently admins are speaking of that matter.

      Similar; not quite the same in my eyes, though

      And, I fully agree, playerbases don’t inherently hate playerbases. What they do is dislike people within those – which is only natural. The only shame is when this dislike, along with liking other players, gets in the way of fair judgement.

      Sure, harassment has become more prominent, but that’s no excuse to police everything as closely as it is. Not only did my post to that thread get removed, despite the fact that I honestly expressed myself in the most collected way I could, I also got warned for “Consistent attempts to rouse fights and cause toxicity amidst other players in the community.”

      Let’s not forget how much people complained when the duel originally occurred – now sure, people should let go of it after a while, and I mostly have, but it was brought up because while the two involved were allowed to continue playing, even now that this evidence has surfaced, whereas another player has been permabanned for accountsharing, despite a lack of evidence. Why? Because they were account-sharing with a player that staff (rightfully) dislikes.

      One last note, since I’ve only now seen your reply, Pieman, it may be so, but as I said, I’ve only been paying real attention since late Axios.

    [Clan Lak] Spiritual Crusaders

    The Spiritual Crusaders [A CHOSEN SON OF LAKLUL BASKING IN THE GLORY OF HIS ACTIONS AFTER PILLAGING THE ELVEN CAPITAL AND TAKING THEIR WOMEN AS CONCUBINES] “For seasons unending, the shamans of Krugmar were without enforcement. Their hands stood idle while the Spirits behind their abilities grew restless with the growth of their enemies. Orgon seethes as da great Wood Elven forests expanded beyond their puny walls. Krug howls in fury as the creations of Iblees, who he sacrificed so much to destroy, grew in number and strength.” “No more, I say! The time has long passed that the humans’ heretical beliefs in Canonism would be crushed under the ruthless palm of the mighty Spirits - that the Cleric, and Ascended, and Paladin alike renounced their deities, whom altogether are no better than Daemons - than IBLEES himself! “And lest we forget the Dark Shamans that plague our own beliefs - those that believe themselves to be greater than the Spirits! My brothers, I urge you, rise up not against our human, agh Elven oppressors. No, rise up against their faith! Uproot their beliefs, that the Spirits may cleanse their minds, and bring them to true nirvana!” -Drûtram’Lak, First of the Spiritual Crusaders Equipment Armour “With all these magic-users walking around, we can’t be risking any harm to our boys, can we? That’s why we got armor on us - ain’t nothing getting past this skah here!” [The SWAMPGOTH outfitted in his crusading gear] “Now, as you can see, we’ve got those leather skirts to keep you light on your feet, and some chainmail under them in case the enemy strikes low. Got a belt to keep your loincloth from slipping down, a gauntlet to keep you free hand protected, and that shoulder-plate to keep your sword-arm protected. Apart from that, you’ve got those nice thick boots to keep mud out of your feet. We don’t have too much armor, so you ain’t trippin over yourself. ” Plants “Ah, but we can’t just be using brawn to convert these heretics. We gotta use our brains, too. That’s why we use these.” [A depiction of what is commonly known as ‘Mandragora’] “Now I don’t have a name for these yet - but what I know is stuffing one of these in some human’s gob makes them stand real still. Now, I’ve been reading up - apparently, the humans call dat ‘paralysis’. I reckon it’s the Spirits reaching down and cleansing their souls. Sometimes, they die after eating too much - that’s just the Spirits telling us we’ve got no way of saving them - they’re putting them out of their misery. “Anyways, ya always got to carry some of this around. Without it, you ain’t converting anyone, that’s just how it works.” Mantras “you ain’t meant ta’ jus’ beat da spirits into dem, dough. you ‘as ta’ try persuadin’ them first. That’s why I’ve come up with some skah to tell them, instead. “This first one I like to call, ‘To Bless Those Humans’ “Oh Laklul, bless these humans, So they become immune to those Canonist lies, And those attacks of priests, Which torment them on their journey to worship you. Let them stay loyal and strong, As they continue to worship your greatness, And never fault in their struggle to spread your worship Nau.” “If that doesn’t work, you can try screaming in their faces instead. This one doesn’t have so many words, so it’s easier to scream. I call it, ‘Bless them’. Goes like this.” “Laklul, Spirit of the swamps, Fill them with your power, Fill them with your strength, Fill them with your wisdom, Fill them with your will, Fill them with your courage, Fill them with your passion, Nau.” “It doesn’t always work, of course, but that’s when you get the reinforced persuasion tools out.” Enhanced Persuasion “These are used when persuading them with words ain’t quite enough to make them repent and accept the spirits as their true Gods. Time to introduce you to some of my friends.” “The Respecter. One swing with this, and you can rip the skin clean off a halflings back.” “This one speaks for itself. You can almost hear the heretic’s screams.” “My personal favourite - the Pilgrim. One strike over the head with this, and you’ll be gone for three days, and wake up enlightened.” “A skahin’ drill.”

    The September Prince Eventline

    Decent eventline; one thing I will say I especially enjoy is the dynamic-ness of the whole thing. The outcomes of the next event aren’t dictated solely by the performance in the last one, but they can be affected in a number of ways.

    The Zealots March On

    The Zealots March On Among the dusty roads of Atlas wandered a hobgoblin, coughing as dust from riders’ trails forced itself into his lungs. Having been evicted from whence he had called home, he now spent his day paving the roads of Atlas impatiently. Drûtram desired not what he had received - the loss of his city on multiple occasions, to humans no less. He spat at the ground, cursing Renatus, its inhabitants, and their ancestors before them. He would, as was inevitable, happen across a messenger of Krugmar in his travels. “Rex Gurukk? ‘e ain’t in power no mores. Stepped down, ‘e did. Lak ain’t gots no Wargoth no more.” With a knowing nod, the mongrel set off back on the road. Arriving at Cloud Temple, he continued southwards, past the roads of Belvitz, as a few of the tavern’s patrons perked a brow at the sight of such a descendant near their settlement. Continuing to dip past Holm, after hours of trekking, he finally arrived at his destination - north of Santegia, in the great swamps of Atlas. This was not an environment he had grown used to - despite the swampy conditions of what was once his clan hall, he had grown far more accustomed to the dry, cool airs of Krugmar. Trudging through unknown plants, fungi, and scaring off a number of smaller beasts, he continued into the watery landscape, drawing in great breaths of the dank air. The orc had not often been drawn to herbalism, or alchemy for that matter. But the colours around him - blues, violets, and reds - the likes of which he’d never seen before drew him forward like a moth to flame.In this trance, he acted not as himself, but as the swamps wished him to. Soon after, he found himself gnawing on the crimson caps of a handful of mushrooms. The next hours were a blur - stumbling throughout vines hanging, leaning on trees, maddened visions of greatness and whispering voices seemingly of the Spirits themselves, crimson fluid expelling itself from his maw. And then - darkness. For almost three days, the orc lay in a coma, leaving the beasts of the lands to do as they wish with him. As he rose to sitting upright, head throbbing, he noted a number of scars dotting his body - a particularly bad one forming behind the torn fabric of his trousers. But during this time, it would seem his mind was not as inactive as his body. He began at once scribbling hundreds of notes, demanding to use every aviary present - pigeons littered the skies, bringing parchment to each corner of the world, all with a single message. “I, Drûtram’Lak, proclaim myself Swampgoth of Clan Lak.” And so, he set off throughout the roads yet again. He knew, when the time came, his brothers would know to find him. For if the spirits stood with him, who could stand against him? Frûm Ulmakh-izishu

    this server is in shambles

    And because it’s a privilege, that means that volunteering folks can remove posts outing others on a whim, despite the fact that these break no rules? Staff members should realise being staff is a managing position aided by the PEX they get, which should not be used to police what they do and don’t want on the forums depending on who it talks about.

    Apologies, I did mean Xalid. The point was the same one as wolfkite was attempting to push – that he himself doxxed someone, while attempting to ban someone for doxxing that same person. My final question still stands – why is he being held to a different degree to wolfkite, and more importantly, why can’t a normal BR act against a human error that any other player could make? Correct me if I’m wrong, but under the Staff Report FAQ, it is stated that the reports are, ‘for unprofessional behaviour, violating conduct, or other infractions.’ To me, that very much pertains to their behaviour as a staff member, rather than as a player – i.e infractions they may make through the use of their PEX, such as Shalashask when killing everyone online on the server. EDIT: Might I add that I have nothing personally against Xalid. From what I’ve witnessed of him, he’s a dead on guy, and in no way am I targeting him with this thread. I am instead targeting the abysmal reaction of the other staff members both in this situations and others like it.

    Why should it be so? Because players get riled up and start harassing the person in question? Because players’ opinions might affect the result of the ban? That’s all well and good in a perfect world with non-corrupt governors, but just as players are salty, toxic, and to some extent ruthless in their actions against someone they dislike, staff is not infallible. They have their biases, dislikes, and downfalls. The idea isn’t to make all staff reports public, nor to abolish the anonymous report system. But have you noticed that while an anonymous report will take upwards of a month to be fully carried through, and this one BR on a GM was addressed nearly instantly? Tell me, how long do normal BRs against ordinary people last? Certainly not upwards of a month. Now, I don’t know about you, but as much as I might be biased, and as much as I like to give people I like the benefit of the doubt as often as possible, that doesn’t mean I will take nearly ten times as long to look over their case as I would looking over another person’s. And, as a final note, might I add that the BR made on Xarkly, which I will fully admit is the reasoning behind this post, was not on abuse of PEX, nor anything to do with actually being a GM – it was a BR on the player themselves, over something completely detached from their volunteering. It was something that a normal player also got banned for – what is the difference between the cases, when they both did what they did accidentally? Why does one require an anonymous, detached ban report, and the other needs only the use of a /ban command?

    this server is in shambles

    the staff team are in a constant state of either jerking each other off or banning people for the tiniest reasons, which could easily be talked over or fixed with slaps on the wrists, while putting off dealing with, or outright ignoring blaring issues in the server, such as an online child predator which they took an alarmingly long time to actually ban it doesn’t help that each new FM is provided with a handbook to deal with dissent in the forums, while GMs ignore, deny, or remove evidence of any issues that are brought up to them personally. how to babysit staff members 101: force players to make anonymous staff reports that take a month+ to look at and are usually left on “feedback noted” this server is in shambles and the staff are to blame, change my mind.
