      Awww, thank you so much! We here at the K.Weekli love you too. =)

  3. Mimosa Applefoot does a double take when looking at the artistic drawing of Sarah "Tha' lass used t'ae beh ah Vampire? O' Knox.... sure t'is ah small world. Glad she's bettah now."
  4. I like this. +1. Only problem is that this lore seems to only relate to elven mythos, which is bad! It should be for everyone!
  5. I technically lost but @VerminHunter thought I won so I got the top prize anyways.
  6. Halfling Event Calendar for the rest of the week is up!

  7. [!] A note is pinned to the Bywater notice tree! Events 'n Bywater! ~Malin's Welcome~ ~Ploughing the fields~ Planting o' the wheat fields o'er with new grains! This is vital for our village economy, for obvious reasons! ((8 PM EST, Thursday the 2nd of February, 2023)) ~The First Seed~ ~A totem to the Frog Spirit~ Weeding the seedlings o' the fields so as to make for a better harvest! What good is a field if all it grows is weeds, after all? It is to take care of the weeds before they grow to large. ((7 PM EST, Friday the 3rd of February, 2023)) ~The Grand Harvest~ ~A feast in the Applefoot Burrow~ Harvesting the fields! This will coincide with threshing, milling, and other vital tasks to ensure for good quality grains and flours! ((3 PM EST, Saturday the 4th of February, 2023)) ~Sun's Smile~ ~Adventurers dealing with a rather peculiar situation~ We must secure the safety of our village as well this year. I expect new enemies to rear their ugly heads. These enemies of Bywater will surely be put to justice by the loyal Adventurers of the Adventuring Guild. Of that, I have nay doubt! ((4 PM EST, Sunday the 5th of February, 2023 This will be a HalflingQuest eventline, expect action and excitement! Link to HalflingQuest rules in the spoiler below:)) Knox bless Bywater! Glory to the Wee! ~Mimosa Applefoot, local halfling and Mayor of Bywater.

      Kor'garr should join in, this seems hilarious.

       

  9. [!] A notice is spread through the wind! Shogging Night! ~The shogging logs of Bywater in their traditional setup~ An ol' traditional game dating back as far as any halfling can remember, Shogging is our national sport and something us weefolks ought to take more pride in! Let us convene next Pumpkin Day to train & practice our beloved sport and keep the tradition alive! ~Mimosa Applefoot, Mayor of Bywater ((7 PM EST, Tomorrow on Wednesday the 1st of February, 2/1/2023. Located within Bywater, the home of the halflings on Almaris : ))
  10. Ppl using this democracy debate thread as a soapbox to voice their discontent with democratic concepts and universal suffrage IRL really shows the mental maturity of the server is in the early teens.
  11. Bywater shall be free! The halflings call all adventurers to resist the evil munchkin threat!

  12. [!] A notice is spread through the wind. A copy slams into your face comically, forcing you to read it. A NEED FOR HEROES ~The peaceful lands we must protect!~ The forces of Darkness, of Evil, of Despair, of Hatred, and of Improperness have escaped justice once again! They now aim to conquer time itself, hurling the world and all of its peoples into eternal darkness! This MUST be stopped at all costs! The Quest Office of Bywater hereby declares this to be a TIER SSS quest (of utmost importance!) with a grand reward in hay, leather, meat, and iron for any adventurers willing to defeat the Time Bandits (now known to be worshipers of the Squid Lord!). Knox speed and may righteous fury be with you! Knox shall protect us, and you are to be HIS shovels! ~Mimosa Applefoot, local halfling and Mayor of Bywater ((3 PM EST, tomorrow on Sunday the 29th of January, 2023. Located within Bywater, the home of the halflings on Almaris. Directions to Bywater: ))
  13. LOTC democracies suffer from a lack of players in every nation to fulfill all of the roles in a modern democracy. You can't really pull off a full legal system, parliament or congress with representation for multiple provinces/states/whatever, and proper checks and balances without literally 100% of your nation's playerbase being senators and lawyers. In IRL societies that is not a problem as your average village has about the same daily occupancy as LOTC does, much less massive cities with millions of people. Because of this, most LOTC "Democracies" are just INSANELY STRONG, POWERFUL EXECUTIVES with ZERO checks and balances apart from "Uh, if you commit crimes against the Republic, the guards will arrest you and put you in jail for 2 IRL hours or kill you so you can instantly respawn!" And the guards are loyal to the super powerful executive leader anyways and the Democracy turns back into a Monarchy/Dictatorship/Whatever in only a few election cycles. It's not made any better by the fact that PROs are literally GODS of their regions via current rules and can do whatever they want even if a legislature rules against them. Some big empires can pull of parliaments/duma/congress stuff better than others thanks to having more players to fill up the voter base and run for office, but it's overall much more difficult to run a functioning democracy on LOTC than it is IRL. I think it's worth mentioning that LOTC Monarchies have huge problems as well. It used to be the case that old ex-NLs (le funny shadow leaders) could exert power and influence over a lot of the server by controlling succession or some NL who really shouldn't be given nation-leading powers are made to inherit the throne (Such as BenevolentManacles most notably). Overall I think LOTC democracies are better than having dead-beat do-nothing NLs given power through friend cliques but overall still ain't perfect.
