  1. Avagis prays that this receives more attention than the considerable number of upvote-farming posts that have been clogging the Forum recently.
  2. A moment of silence for all the hopes and dreams of every person in England. One day, it will come home. 

  3. STOP THE ******* REP FARMING 

  4. Listen to the people - 134 people said to keep the doors the same, and another 146 said to keep the redstone doors the same. Why is it necessary that the Moderation team implement the changes to please the extreme minority when the current large majority are satisfied with the system as it is? If it ain't broke, don't try to fix it. NOTE: I actually do think we should make the doors the same in terms of their rolls to get into, just for aesthetic's sake, so we can eliminate iron doors in their entirety cos they're ******* ugly. But I'm not trying to shove that down other people's throats. Not saying you are, just saying it may be perceived that way, since you're making a second poll when the first poll already gave a clear answer.
  5. put this one back in the docs and work on it a bit more i reckon also PASTE IT ON FIREFOX AND DO NOT USE BULLET POINTS THEY ARE HORRIBLE ON THE FORUMS hmu on discord if u need any help with more formatting jazz it's myholyland
  6. “A disciplined mind brings happiness.” The Five Ablutions are an integral part of the Ingesøn’s way of life, for they, within themselves, are multifaceted, with their greater purpose being the total and absolute purification of every man who participates within them. They are typically seen during times of war, wherein each man and woman must prepare himself to fight, or in preparation for the rise of a new Rei, through means of combat or the handing down of the Arian. They may also be done in times of mourning, when a kinsman is lost from the Tribe, either by means of death, seen as an honour, or, worse, by means of Gandevna, the total banishment of that member from their blood and their tribe. However, the Five Ablutions, otherwise known as the Khuti Abdva in the traditional, Aeldinic tongue of the Ingesøn, may be called upon at any time by the current Rei, at which point all members of the Tribe are required to gather in order to complete them, side by side. A step that is typically practised ahead of the Five Ablutions is that of the shaving of one’s head, in the case of men, or the removal of the ends of one’s hair, in the case of women, being both practical and traditional in concept. Bloodbrothers of Ingesøn typically keep their hair on the shorter side, so that it may regrow quickly thereafter. The First Ablution, Tskhvari, may be translated as “Sacrifice.” A singular member of the tribe, traditionally the youngest member, is tasked with the retrieval of a young lamb, which may then be prepared for utilisation in the cultural ritual. It is cleaned in the brine of the northern seas, and then humanely slain by way of a ceremonial blade, used only for the purpose of the Tskhvari and that alone. The carcass is then separated, and much of the blood removed for later usage in the Second Ablution, Evkarist’ia. What follows, whilst altogether grotesque and unsanitary, is a representation of the very tribal and burdening nature of the ways of the Ingesøn. The raw carcass is divided into parts, before each member of the tribe is provided with a piece of flesh, which they must then proceed to eat entirely. The lining of the organs is removed and spared for the Third Ablution, T’reningi. This ordeal represents the innocence of the lamb itself, and how this irreproachability may be channelled within the stomachs of every member, granting them the fearlessness of children within what is to come. The Second Ablution, Evkarist’ia, may be translated as “Liturgy.” The still-warm blood of the young lamb is purposed toward the filling of the familial artefact of the same name, so that all members of Ingesøn may sup upon the blood within this chalice, one by one. Whilst purposed toward the same cleansing purposes as the remainder of the Ablutions, the Evkarist’ia is one of the most important. This ritual is said to bring forth divine inspiration from within the spirits of those of the tribe. Many are said to have felt a litany of whispers in their ears and their very mind, a deathly melody of their ancestors themselves, a choir found deeply within their own blood, inciting actions driving beyond those of the Five Ablutions, encompassing the purging of internal vice and the strive toward total purity. The rumbling chants and songs of their internal choirs are said to aid in coming battles, bringing forth fury and judgement from within every man unto his enemy. In special cases, the Evkarist’ia may be altered so that the blood of the Rei is utilised instead of the blood of the young lamb. Little has been spoken to of what has occurred when this special form of The Five Ablutions has been called, though it is said to be fated to occur when a time of great change is required within the depths of the tribe itself. The Third Ablution, T’reningi, may be translated as “Trial.” Each and every member of the trial will choose an opponent to fight in combative training, and may elect to fight by means of any weapon, or armour, though these means are typically avoided, with the purest and most honourable form of combat being the barest, martial form, where each member possesses neither weapon nor is clad in armour. The goal of this combat is not death, but, instead, to train and incite combative inspiration within the other, as this is said to bring peace of mind and body to each member of the Ingesøn, a necessary aid during their process of purification. The most necessary step in the Third Ablution is the utilisation of the organs and remaining blood of the sacrificed lamb, wherein each member is painted and coated in these things before they engage in the ritual itself, so as to both emphasise the purity of the lamb and inspire strength within each fighter, due to the strange and profound tribulations they must find themselves overcoming throughout the ritual itself. They must sacrifice and throw away their pride and dignity so that they may only fight - neither man nor woman holds any shred of these egotisms, and these things must be seen to be burned away in their entirety. Silence is mandatory throughout this ritual. T’reningi is only performed with the cacophonous beat of drums wrought of the stretched and cured skins of the sheeps of past Ablutions, played throughout, and is typically performed within the grounds of nature, amongst the soil, shit and soot. The Fourth Ablution, Saretskhi, may be translated as “Washing.” One may only be dirty before they can become clean. Saretskhi, the Fourth Ablution, encompassess this concept in its entirety - for whilst many believe that the cleansing of water might cause one to be clean, the definition of “clean” is turned upon its head within this very ritual, for only the Fifth Ablution may truly clean and purify the members of Ingesøn. The most ideal environment for the Fourth Ablution to occur in is by the northern sea, the original home of those of Ingesøn, replicating the conditions of the Fjordem Island of Aeldin, the home of their ancestors. However, if this cannot be feasibly achieved, a large barrel containing brine and the clay of the northern rivers will accomplish the same effect, as now, the combined blood and entrails of the lamb, alongside the sweat, tears and blood of each and every member, will be cleansed from them in the freezing waters of the sea itself, the salt desiccating their skin and preparing them for their fifth and final Ablution - Tskheba, The Anointment. Art made by thequeennadine. [TBA] The Fifth and final Ablution, Tskheba, may be translated as “Anointment.” The amalgamation of every trial and tribulation that those who have endured the Ablutions arrives at this singular, final point - wherein the anointment of blood will bring about the total purification of every man’s mind, body and spirit, internally and externally. The Tskheba is less of a ritual and more of an event and an achievement within itself, and is typically performed publicly, for all to see, after the Fourth Ablution has been completed. It is both customary and mandatory for all members of the tribe to perform a part in their ancestral chants as the anointment is performed, chanting and calling out against the very world itself, and The Absolute in the skies above, the grounds below. For this Ablution to be performed, the blood of an enemy of the Tribe must first be drained from their corpse, collected and laid within a stone mound so that it might steadily be diluted by way of rainfall, and thus, the ritual requires a storm. This blood may then be gathered in bowls and utilised by the Elders of the tribe in order to anoint all members between their eyebrows with a thumb-mark dipped in the blood. Once the Elders have completed this task, they may then stand at the front, and simultaneously anoint and be anointed by the Rei. Members of the tribe are required to maintain this anointed mark upon them as long as they possibly can, though this mark is known to last a long period of time, as even rainfall does not wash it away. In times of war, the anointment, known by the same name, is worn with pride and exposed to the world, especially during times of combat. [OOC NOTES]:

  8. The Venerated Cardinal Armand, once the Auditor of the Tribunal himself, smiles the sun's smile, knowing now that a true successor to his duties had been chosen. Callahan had, after all, been the man he had desired to take the mantle thereafter his death. ".. Humanity rests. He will do well."
  9. "This man's skills with his blade shall never compare to his skills of the tongue. I have heard more false crap from his mouth than from the very arsehole of a horse itself." The Ingesøn muttered, knowing they would win this war. "His head will be displayed for all to see."
  10. ".. Shut up, liberal. You are a foul demon-spawn." So too did the Ingeson mutter.
  11. “Before the wretched Most High, we reject our blood; and so it was, that the sins of the father shall not be visited upon the sons.” The Ingesøn (pronounced Ing-eh-seun, translating to ‘The Sons of None’) are a tribe wrought of the remnant blood of the Øhlson Clan, headed by Alaric aep Øhlson - a wretched father who, above all, was a warlock, fanatic to a pagan Creator, and so fierce in his zealousness that he sought to unify his children with his ideals and faith in such ways that no child could bear to brunt. Those borne of this brood bear upon them the many curses of their father’s actions, knowing within their hearts that they must reject their blood, for with that blood comes immense sin. The Ingesøn reside amongst the folk of the Ilmurin Vanguard as one of the first tribes of the new age to arise within it, consisting entirely of the proto-elf children of the Øhlson brood, who were ultimately rejected, and so too did reject, their blood, their father, and everything that they came from. They possess an innate understanding of the ways of the Clan that had brought them into being - a preference for the lands of the north and the arctic oceans, and a deep connection to the land beneath them, alongside, primarily, a militaristic order to those who stand within the Tribe, binding themselves to their blades and their brawn, their tactics and their trials, above all. What is sought by the Ingesøn is neither war nor peace, but a figurative land, not bound by location nor geography, known as Athaulf, where they might settle and be amongst one another. This place is where they may reside in unity with the land, the sea and the skies above, and every other man, woman and child. They bear a distinct distaste for the ways of the cities and the strife of every nation, knowing themselves to be beyond it. The Ilmurin Vanguard The Ingesøn Tribe possesses within it a hierarchy based primarily upon equal standing - all members of the Tribe of blood relation to one another will stand equally, no matter what. There is a singular exception to this, he (or she) who stands as the leader of the tribe, the Rei. A singular individual [at present: Avagis Ingesøn] who shall lead the tribe in all things - whether it may be in the location of Athaulf, the trials and tribulations of the tribe itself, or the very oral rules that lie between every member. The Rei is symbolised in their power by their bearing of the shining blade, Arian, a Seax wrought of alien metal, smithed and wrought by the hand of the First Rei, Avagis. He who is of blood descent who claims this blade by means of a rightful duel with the current Rei will be known as the new Rei - alternatively, it may instead be handed down from old to new. The Ingesøn, whilst still having rejected the blood of their fathers before them, have developed their own rich form of cultural heritage. This revolves primarily around the wisdom sought out from the many tribal rituals that those of Ingesøn blood engage in - whether it be to make contact with the land itself through trial and tribulation, or to unify with the skies by way of journey, and finally, to unify one’s mind and body by way of the blade, or the fist. The Ingesøn seek to control their emotion in every regard - though, when they engage in battle, it is customary to engage in the various chants of their mother tongue, that of the Fjordem Island of Aeldin, whether it be in a musical fashion or in a fashion akin to that of Mysticism, granting one a unification with The Absolute, believed to be the creator of the blood of Ingesøn, through altered mind and body. Every member of The Ingesøn Tribe possesses amongst them a certain set of features that will allow a keen eye to distinguish between them with ease. Though not all are the children of Alaric, they are all of the descent of his Clan, and thus, possess the dead, grey eyes that were once infamous amongst those of the Ohlson Clan. As well as this, they are typically paler in appearance, even when borne from individuals with darker features, and extremely tall, with all of them being proto-elves, between a range of 6’ and 6’7”. Many of them, having been raised with the capability of militaristic action, have the capability to grow and maintain decent quantities of muscle - if well-trained, they may be able to fully maximise their combative potential, though not all members of the Tribe are inherently militaristic. Many prefer to take upon themselves various other roles within the Tribe, such as Artisans, Scribes, Apothecaries, and any other roles, so long as they are of use to the greater collective. The naming system of the Ingesøn is one that is clear-cut - all members of the tribe must have names beginning with the letter A, originating in meaning and description from the mother tongue of the previous island their ancestors had once occupied. Distinctly, the most well-known feature of those within the tribes is the scarified marking that may be present anywhere upon their body, known as the Hringur. It is the symbol that binds everyone together, for it represents the all-seeing eye of judgement that might bring upon them great pain were they to engage in misdeeds. [OOC NOTES]:
  12. The vagabond could've sworn he'd seen words of praise and promises of assistance from the Lurinites and their leader but days before, in alternate times of alternate events within the forum square of the CCC. He chuckled to himself, knowing them to bear their cowardice haughtily upon their breasts, as though their own cowardice was pride itself. ".. Funny, really."
  13. A vagabond rears his head, raising it from the pages that he did read, before laying out a singular utterance. "An alliance of four nations .. no .. four people .." He called out to his fiancé. ".. Have you heard of anyone living in any of these lands?" She shook her head. ".. Neither have I. Strange."

      I don't think dissing someone's build contributes to good rp.
      Complaining about the cut down forest is already a nice RP reason.
