  1. No, seriously, where is Telos?

    Lup'Zagbal [The Eastern Jungle, Circa 63 SA.] Darkness encapsulated the Eastern Jungle, faint corsucations of light danced wildly across marred bark and rotten soil; The Bear looked out from beneath her cowl, forged to resemble the countenance of an Orc, muttering incantations in a language thought long lost to the annals of history. Thick mists coiled around the Bear’s masque, rising up from a small censer in her lap, embers spanning a strange herbal concoction. “Zagbal: dâg ob Freyguuth, Ilzgûl ob ghaamp agh gazog - horn agh isl.” The Bear rasped again and again, inhaling the wafts of vapor with each breath. Thin columns of light shined down, illuminating portions of the site; The tell-tale reds and oranges of fires dance against a great monument, verdant hides dangle from its length. The remaining leaves rustled with the breeze, and the distant call of birdsong echoed throughout the jungle. “Zagbal, dâg ob Freyguuth: lat blûg grazadh, lab tau iz darûkûrz. Kinul, Goth ob baga, darg-tab snagas n’u’lab tau.” The Bear bellowed, chalky fumes amalgamating about their worldly facade. A solemn pause, seizing a moment to reflect. The voices of the Ilzgûl had all but been null for the former Uluamirzgai, shunned for their past transgressions; Having damned plenty of Zagbal’s ilk into her Ismuth Anchor, the Bear grasped that her efforts could be in vain, a wasted effort. “Brus’izg sharr-lab rulum uzg, skûm’lab grazadh - krailab nûl. Izg golm izubu naakh, Zagbal; Ilzgûl ob ghaamp agh gazog - horn agh isl, dâg ob Freyguuth. Amirz'ub ghûlb’lab uzg? Amirz'ub atish’lab ghaamp roz? Lab ghaam gull? Amirz'ub ghûlbtau'slaiûrz?" She’d begun stoking the embers within her censer, guiding the miasma beneath her cowl. Expulsed with each exhale, plumes of smoke ran down her physique, spewing forth from behind her masque. "Lab uzg kulthagûrz agh asht, amol much tik kramp lat nargzab u af'kraat ik lat mauk'krut?" She had cracked, a thunderous tone sent rolling across the jungle floor, reverberating off of sullied timber and moss-stricken stone. "Lab matûrz naakh kramp'nar snagh, agh zatal izg zaug’golm izubu tabz. Izg golm lat za bûth." She'd return the censer to its rightful place, filling her figure as she rose. Silence. This revelation was not foreign to the Bear, having sought absolution in the past, only to be left wanting. Perhaps, this time, things would be different; a weak Spirit requires all the allies it can muster, and Zagbal's influence is fleeting at best.

    A breeze weaves its way through vine and branch, carrying with it a faint echo of unknown origin - "...Lup'Zagbal..."
  4. A message has been left upon various loose sheafs of bark, drafted in the blood of a jungle creature. "This Jungle will not die. You may distort it, your works may bring change to it, but you will never kill it. You require its resources to sate your needs, much like the bee requires sustenance from the mountain-laurel. You wrought a fungus that has already begun to spread, an expanse of fungal wilds from which a new forest will grow."
  5. "Who remains for you to be heard?" Questioned a figure of yore, draped in age-old fabrics. They scanned the missive for a few moments longer, ultimately ripping it from the very bark it was pinned to. The figure crumpled up the missive, stuck it in their satchel, and continued on into the twilight.
  6. @Telanir Can you take me to Christmas Land?

  7. No. Sorry, but it’s already been sullied by the previous community.
  8. Riklaumeth, a blind prophet of yore awakens from the caress of his of slumber, sweat painting his visage. That which was painted across his subconscious workings had, oddly, disturbed this rather calm and uncaring half-blood. He rises from the comforts of his leafy spread, and equips himself for the journey ahead. It took only moments before his den was empty once more, the moonlight guiding his way. Bel’ra, a once fallen shaman of yore, appeared rather preoccupied with her prayer to an undisclosed Spirit, however, fleeting imagery and gnarled sounds made waves across her senses. She stared off at the center-mass of the gargantuan totem of which she found herself regularly, the entirety of her being frozen as she watched the events play out before her. This vision, it came about suddenly, and fled without notice – She sat idle for a time, even after the prophetic vision faded from her cerebral workings, no verbal response was ushered forth from her core. She remained in a state of deep thought, hoping that this was the work of a Spirit of Knowledge that she had been in service to.
  9. Bel’ra looks to Varan, “Called it.”
  10. Honestly, the way I see it is this: This seems like a play from the Community Team to further eradicate a player-made guild and its lore. As Dingo said, “The Wilven Monks were inevitably hijacked by 501 to be utilized as a ‘proper’ staff run mentoring guild”. While that happened a long time ago, I think it’s clear that the Community Team, since taking hold of it, has done very little to disassociate with the original Wilven Monks that were, of course, a player run group – In fact, it seems as if the Lead, LotsOfMuffins, is bent on making the current Temple-Monks something they’re not, Wilven Monks. I don’t think that’s very cool, in fact, I saw something similar with the whole Dragur-Library debacle which, is under the supervision of the World Team as a ‘staff-project’ and has been since the beginning of this map, if you haven’t noticed (you can debate me on that, but I still have screenshots of Luka, the former Dragur lead, stating exactly that Dragur is now a staff-project). I’m honestly not a fan of any staff-team taking control of player-run guilds and factions, for a lot of reasons and, especially without the permission of said players that were involved in the past. It just seems like a scummy move to do something like that, which, perhaps might just be my opinion, but I certainly wouldn’t want any staff team on this server walking in and taking control of any faction or guild I’m involved with. I don’t think it’d be too much to ask for @LotsOfMuffins to change the name of the current iteration, since she had literally 0 involvement in the original guild and, as we can tell, there’s little reason for the temple-monks to be taking up the ruse of a once formerly player-run group. Though, I am doubtful she will do such, especially with the current state of things, namely her freaking out at any criticism for the most part because it’s deemed some form of affront to her very existence on here. tl;dr: change the name, don’t steal the lore, don’t retcon already pre-established groups without permission and for a personal agenda.
  11. Hasn’t the uwu-squad locked this post yet?
  12. I take it back. What in Krug’s name compelled you all to massacre the blessings?
  13. Woke up, and it donned on me that most cases of Admins stepping down, especially in recent times, have been a direct result of some scandal or integrity-destroying event that ultimately leads to their removal through Telanir and or an Admin-Vote. Now, I’m rather curious if there’s ever going to be a change on that, will the players ever have a say? Or will we just have to wait for another scandal or intervention for notably ineffective members of the Admin-Team to be removed? Is anyone interested in a community-vote on the matter, a democratic decision made not just by four – five individuals, but instead each member of the Admin’s respective staff team? Is there already such procedure in place? I feel like a topic on the forums may be just what we need.

      imagine thinking of lotc as the first thing after waking up

      I doubt you could keep any admins around if you just had to do thing to survive votes to remove you constantly. You have to do things that are unpopular for the good of the server and we would be just worried about PR and keeping people happy. Might sound cynical coming from an admin but must people don’t really understand if an admin is doing a good job or not and definitely most would vote to remove after every little bit of drama. LotC is also not a democratic community, but a minecraft server developed through volunteer cooperation by the staff and the server owner. None of us have to play at the end of the day and we choose how we engage with it.

      lmfao the community also worshipped ski_king



      don't think the players are the voice of reason on this server. Neither are the admins but it's better to have them duke it out against one another than having the players also weigh in on drama and decisions

  14. Apply for ST.
    who am I kidding, you don’t even need to apply. Accepted.

  15. Sorcerio strikes again.
  16. Isn’t there a sub-team of the Community Team meant to do this and more? What’s it called.. Content Creation, I think.
  17. You know, I have to admit.. I really like it. Nice. Accepted.
