    Clan Va'eylul

    ❢◥ ▬▬▬▬▬▬ ◆ ▬▬▬▬▬▬ ◤❢ Clan Va'eylul ❢◥ ▬▬▬▬▬▬ ◆ ▬▬▬▬▬▬ ◤❢ ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ History ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ Formerly known as clan R’ikarth , clan Va'eylul history is a lengthy one. Emerging from humble beginnings as hunters in Esbec among the swamps of Arcas they followed Zirath R’enar pilgrimage and embarked on a journey when they ventured into Urguani lands. There, they delved into the depths of the earth, honing their skills in metallurgy and forging a deep bond with the mountains and rugged landscapes that became their temporary home. Their mastery of metallurgy became renowned, and as they returned to their elven kin, they carried with them a reputation for crafting exceptional weapons and armor. Settling in Stygian Hollow, they contributed to the construction of the first buildings and were rewarded with their first clan house, finally transforming from a simple hunters’ family to a fully fleshed out Maehr clan thanks to Zirath’s guidance, solidifying their place within the growing community. The Va'eylul clan, known as R’ikarth at the time, shared their metallurgical knowledge generously, enriching the collective craftsmanship of their Maehr kin. In later years, the Va'eylul clan played a significant role in historical events as their founder emerged as a central figure. After assuming a leadership role in Stygian Hollow, he spearheaded the establishment of the first recorded Nor'asath principality in the Nordic lands. With the support of fellow maehr and mali'fenn, he became the prince of the maehr alongside Prince of the Mali’Fenn, Vytrek, holding this esteemed position for several decades. This period marked a defining chapter in the clan's history, solidifying their influence and contributing to the shaping of the maehr society. Despite their growing expertise in metallurgy, the Va'eylul clan never forgot their hunting heritage and continued delving in ambitious hunting expeditions. And thus their forged weapons became synonymous with their exceptional craftsmanship and prowess on the battlefield. The Thulun branch, born from the deep bond between the clan founder Zirath R’enar and his sibling Anerian Thulun, brought a new aspect to the clan's structure and spirituality. Anerian played a vital role in fostering discipline, organization, and harmonious coexistence within the clan. Their influence extended beyond their own ranks, as they became respected advisors sought after for their strategic thinking and guidance in matters of order and structure. Following the temporary disappearance of the clan's founder for a span of several decades, Anerian Thulun stepped into the role of clan leader. During this time, Anerian successfully led the clan, ensuring its stability and continued growth. Even after the founder's eventual return, Anerian Thulun retained the position of clan leader, continuing to guide and govern the Va'eylul clan with wisdom and dedication. Anerian's steadfast leadership has played a vital role in maintaining the clan's unity and upholding its cherished traditions throughout the years. ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ Recruitment ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ The clan Va'eylul warmly welcomes recruits into their fold, extending their embrace beyond blood ties and recognizing the value of diverse perspectives and talents. They understand that true strength lies in unity and the contributions of individuals, regardless of their lineage. The clan actively fosters an inclusive environment where recruits are encouraged to express themselves and contribute their skills and talents. They understand that each individual has their own strengths and areas of expertise, and they provide opportunities for recruits to showcase their abilities. Recruits are offered guidance and support as they navigate the intricacies of clan life. Experienced members act as mentors, providing insights into the clan's traditions, values, and practices. They take the time to share their wisdom, ensuring that new recruits feel connected and informed about the clan's rich heritage. Recruits in clan Va'eylul are provided with a ledger to document their thoughts and reflections. Meditation and self-reflection are valued practices within the clan. New members are expected to write down their aspirations and reasons for joining. Journaling serves as a tool for personal growth, accountability, and shared understanding among clan members. It fosters self-awareness and the cultivation of purpose.… For new members it is a direct expectation from the Patriarch that the aspirant must have in writing their aspirations and reasons for wanting to join the clan. ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ Marriage ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ Marriage is considered to be a deeply personal affair in Clan Va'eylul. Still an exchange of material gifts between lovers is expected, these can range from anything from simple rings to magically imbued artifacts. Mutually received tattoos are also considered a valid form of gift exchange. Regardless of the approach the Patriarch will have the gifts exchanged and the marriage ceremony on record. There are many traditions and practices that are held during a marriage, such as ceremonial spars, blessings from the patriarch and more. ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ The Thulun branch ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ Formed shortly after the construction of Kher’lomi in Athera, the Thuluns were a Maehr clan of revered scholars, teachers, hunters & Shamans of some renown. Founded by Xypher , first the of Thuluns, the clans bloodline goes back five generations and has a long history both with and away from their fellow maehr depending on the political climate. The Thuluns are thinkers at heart and despite their stoic disposition are considered to be the de facto ‘caretakers’ and guardians of the clan. Their insights and teachings are highly regarded, shaping the clan's understanding of the world and influencing their decision-making processes. In times of uncertainty, the Thuluns provide guidance and counsel, drawing upon their wealth of knowledge and experience to navigate challenges. They meticulously record the clan's history and safeguard its most precious artifacts, ensuring the preservation of their ancestral heritage for future generations. As scholars, teachers, hunters, and shamans, the Thuluns embody a multifaceted role within clan Va'eylul. Their dedication to preserving knowledge, passing down traditions, and connecting with the spiritual realm is deeply ingrained in their identity. Through their tireless efforts, the Thuluns contribute to the flourishing of the clan, ensuring its continued prosperity and the enrichment of its members' lives. ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ To be a paragon of Thulun values Xypher often emphasized the importance of balance in temperament. And to achieve these ends he laid out several core tenants that family would be expected to structure their lives around. If you bear knowledge then temper it with wisdom. If you bear wisdom then pursue Knowledge.. If you are prideful, seek out humility. If you are too humble, take pride. Pursue your vices. Do not become your vices. If you are hateful, seek out temperance If you are selfless, learn to be selfish. If you are selfish, learn selflessness. ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ The R’enar Branch ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ The R’enar clan, with their deep roots stretching back to Arcas, held a rich tapestry of traditions woven from the ancient hunting customs of Esbec and the profound knowledge of metallurgy gained during their time in Urguani lands. Their journey from a small hunters' village near Helena, Esbec, to becoming an esteemed presence within maehr society serves as proof of their determination. This branch is a distinguished lineage that embodies the pinnacle of martial prowess and loyalty. Originating from the clan’s founder and his ancestor, this branch has forged a reputation as the epitome of warriors within the clan, specializing in the art of war, monster hunting and strategic combat. R’enar warriors are renowned for their unmatched skill and proficiency in battle. Through rigorous training and dedication, they have honed their physical abilities, mastering a wide array of combat techniques and tactics. Their disciplined approach to warfare and unwavering focus allow them to adapt swiftly to changing circumstances on the battlefield. This branch holds deep respect for the arts of metallurgy and hunting, these practices are honored by the R’enar warriors and embody the perfect harmony between the forging of exceptional weapons and the skilled pursuit of prey in the wild. Beyond their martial prowess, the R'enar warriors exemplify values of honor, integrity, and loyalty. They adhere to a strict code of conduct and each member of the branch understands the importance of trust and unity, forging unbreakable bonds among themselves and the wider Va'eylul clan. The R'enar warriors are respected and revered within the Va'eylul clan for their dedication to protecting their kin and upholding the honor of their lineage. ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ After the clan founder created the R'enar branch, he laid down this creed, basing it on the ideology and lessons learned during his time in Esbec, where he founded it alongside fellow hunters. He also drew inspiration from the teachings left by Zeclas R'enar. We uphold integrity and dignity, acting with honor in all we do. We are steadfastly loyal to our kin, clan, and cause. We embrace discipline to strengthen our skills and strive for excellence. We face adversity with courage, defending our kin and upholding our lineage's honor. We forge unbreakable bonds, supporting and uplifting one another. We treat others with respect, honoring traditions and beliefs. We accept the weight of our actions, taking ownership and being mindful of their impact. Each branch of the clan requires submission to one of the sacred spirits. Jevex for the Scholarly path, Votar for the huntsmaehr and Genthurz for the craftsmaehr. All paths entail the clan member picking up a trade or practice that benefits the collective. Be it practical skills such as Metallurgy or magic.(i.e Shamanism. Blood Magic and other forms sanctioned by the Ashen state) ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ Cultural Practices ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ Gurzka Onuul Laybuaeth (forging Ritual of Unity) Every five years, the Thulun and R'enar branches gather in the clan's forge. Led by the master smith, they collaborate to forge a special ceremonial weapon, armor or utensil of their choice. This creation represents the shared heritage and strength of the branches, symbolizing unity within Clan Va'eylul. Once completed, the clan's Leader offers the weapon to the spirits. It is then prominently displayed in the clan hall. Onuulaeth Aeylul (Ritual of Knowledge) In the library or study area, Thulun members gather surrounded by shelves of books and ancient tomes. Led by a designated Thulun elder, the ritual focuses on the pursuit of knowledge. An in-depth lesson on topics such as maehr history, Spirit worship, and other cultural aspects is conducted. Although Thulun members are expected to attend, it is open to participation from R'enar branch members and even outsiders of the clan who share a thirst for knowledge. Following the lesson, each participant follows their intuition and selects a book or scroll. Passages from the chosen texts are read, leading to lively discussions and reflective conversations on their deeper meanings and practical applications. Together, the Thulun members and other attendees delve into shared wisdom, reaffirming the immense value of knowledge and the inclusivity of the clan's intellectual pursuits. Ma’lelaeth Urezduk (Trial of brotherhood) The R'enar warriors assemble in a designated training ground, prepared for a physical and spiritual challenge. Led by the patriarch or matriarch, the ritual highlights the importance of brotherhood/sisterhood within the branch. The warriors form pairs or small groups. The challenge consists of physical tests, such as combat simulations, hunts, obstacle courses, and team challenges. Through collaboration, leveraging individual strengths, and fostering teamwork, the warriors overcome the obstacles. The ritual concludes with a celebration of their accomplishment. This is much more than a simple training as each warrior, upon passing the rituals, receives a new carved symbol on their armor, serving as a symbol of their skill and commitment. Ma’lelaeth Gehexel (Trial of the sacrifice) Thulun clan members partake in periodic fasting for a month. During which members will not indulge in any food or drink from the crack of down to the edge of dusk. The purpose of this is to create discipline and a sense of introspection in the clan members. The Maehr of the Xypher Thuluns time were a hungry, scrappy bunch that would ration food to last days if need be. To feel oneness with their struggles is to carry through the most of a month feeling the pain of hunger. Ayleaeth Szyr’mozhel (Fire of the Ancestors) The Ayleaeth Szyr’mozhel is a sacred ceremony that takes place every four years in front of the Szyr’mozhethe Ayle (ancestral fire), situated within the family's shrine. This flame, diligently tended by members from both the Thulun and R'enar branches, symbolizes the eternal presence of the clan's ancestors. During the ceremony, clan members come together to pay their respects to the ancestors, whose names and stories are chronicled in the clan's Olanuaeth Szyr’mozhel (book of the ancestors). They offer prayers and make requests for blessings from the souls of their ancestors in the realm of Stargush'stroh. This deeply spiritual ceremony not only honors the memory of the ancestors but also strengthens the spiritual connection between the living and the departed. Through the Ayleaeth Szyr’mozhel, the clan reaffirms their gratitude for the guidance and wisdom bestowed upon them by their ancestors. It serves as a reminder of the clan's ancestral lineage, instilling a sense of belonging and preserving the ancestral traditions that form the foundation of their cultural identity. Vudaeth Cernunyrel (Feast of the Hunter) After a successful hunt or noteworthy accomplishment, Clan Va'eylul comes together in their clan hall or outdoors to enjoy a lively feast called the Vudaeth Cernunyrel. This festive event celebrates the clan's hunting prowess and offers a chance to savor the rewards of their achievements. The feast is the centerpiece of the Vudaeth Cernunyrel, featuring the meat from their triumphant hunts, if it's edible. If not, they creatively prepare dishes using meat from previous smaller hunts, ensuring the spirit of the hunt is still present. Savory dishes like venison or boar take center stage, showcasing the clan's ability to thrive in the wild. During the banquet, the clan members who participated in the successful hunt are honored. Their courage, skills, and contributions to the clan's accomplishments are celebrated through stories and toasts. While Clan Va'eylul cherishes their strong bonds, the Hunters' Banquet extends beyond their clan. It embraces neighboring clans and allies, fostering unity and camaraderie. The festive atmosphere is filled with laughter, storytelling, and joyful conversations, creating lasting memories for all who partake. The Vudaeth Cernunyrel, while centered around hunting, extends to various joyous occasions within Clan Va'eylul. It celebrates victories in battles, new alliances, births, marriages, and other festive milestones. ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ Ancestors ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ Across generations, numerous ancestors have emerged as key figures, with Zeclas R'enar and Xypher Thulun standing as the primary pillars of Clan Va'eylul. However, there are other esteemed ancestors who hold significance for both the Thulun and R'enar branches. These revered ancestors, along with the spirits, are deeply respected by the clan members, and it is customary to offer prayers and pay homage to them at the clan's ancestral shrine. -=-Zeclas R’enar-=- “FEAR NOT THE BATTLEFIELD, FOR WE WERE BORN TO PROTECT OUR BLOOD. FEAR NOT THE WOODS, FOR WE WERE BORN TO TAME THE FIERCE BEASTS WITHIN. FEAR NOT YOUR ENEMY, FOR IT IS A WORTHY AND HONORABLE OPPONENT” -Zeclas R’enar Zeclas R'enar, the respected ancestor and grandfather of Zirath R'enar, was a formidable and imposing figure within the clan. Known for his remarkable long life, exceptional weapon skills, and fearsome hunting abilities, Zeclas commanded both respect and fear. Zeclas R'enar's origins are shrouded in mystery, with rumors speculating that he sought refuge in the secluded lands where he eventually married Ramiel R'enar. These rumors suggest that Zeclas had been banished from his previous family during his early thirties, leading him to carve a new path and establish the first generation of the R'enar lineage. As the first to bear the R'enar name, Zeclas played a crucial role in shaping the early family members. To the once small family he taught the art of monster hunting, leaving a lasting legacy of expertise and a deep respect for nature. His presence continues to inspire and guide the R'enar warriors through the texts and stories that tell of his life, fueling their pursuit of excellence and commitment to the clan's traditions. In addition to his formidable skills and legendary accomplishments in monster hunting, Zeclas was known as a powerful and protective family patriarch. He commanded loyalty and respect from his loved ones, though some may have feared his imposing presence. Zeclas's devotion and love for his family were evident, leaving a lasting impression on future generations. Visually, Zeclas is depicted as a dark elf with obsidian skin, adorned with golden tribal tattoos covering his body. His long, pristine silver hair, piercing gold eyes, and jewelry added to his imposing appearance, matching his reputation as a skilled hunter and protector. Zeclas R'enar's mysterious origins, powerful presence, and significant impact on the clan's traditions solidify his position as a respected and feared ancestor. His teachings to the early R’enar family live on, inspiring generations to embody strength, passion and dedication in their own lives. -=-Xypher-=- “A LIFE WITHOUT SELF-INDULGENCE IS A LIFE NOT LIVED WELL, PURSUE THAT WHICH ADDS MEANING TO YOU ,BUT DO NOT MISTAKE YOUR VICES AS THAT WHICH IS OWED TO YOU” -Xypher Thulun Born on the streets of a wood elf village in Athera, Xypher was the first of the Thuluns. He precedes Anerian by five generations of Thulun leaders and is the progenitor of it’s core ideals.His early life was one marked by poverty and hunger. Spending his childhood in orphanages that would cast their oldest members out once they were set up with simple trades. Be it farming, cleaning or fighting. He was described at having combed back white hair, a nearly groomed beard and full black robes. His eyes shined blue like the early hours of dawn and he wielded a long cerulean staff forged with bamboo and leather. He was a prolific reader and pragmatist, picking up any textbooks he could find on business and trade, eventually taking on mercantilism in his early twenties. Xypher was often stated to have had perfect recall and could memorize complex trade networks over singular voyages. He was among the fewest of Maehr in his region and would often find his carriage a target for vandalism and theft, shaping him into a loner at a young age and is noted to have struggled to endear himself to more experienced merchants he could learn from, his strong work ethic being the only thing that maintained most working relationships. For reasons still not fully known he would abruptly close down his merchant life to pursue a Maehr education in the great Libraries of Ker’lomi. Within these walls he would become a scholar of history and write a great deal on philosophy. Spending long hours of the day in the Library in relative seclusion, often pondering the nature of existence and beyond that, hoping to make sense of the hardships of life. Why was it that the Maehr suffered so much indignity at the hands of all folk, be it Morri, humans or High Elves. Most of his writings pertained to Ethics and the metaphysical. Becoming a strong critic moral-relativist in part due to his harsh upbringing but also because he believed that the absence of any guiding moral axis would necessarily lead to a society defined only by anarchy and hedonism. A convenient philosophy for those seeking to act on their worst impulses with none of the moral baggage. ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ Armor ⋅•⋅⊰∙∘☽༓☾∘∙⊱⋅•⋅ The armor of Clan Va'eylul is crafted from strong blackened steel plates, giving it a formidable appearance. It is adorned with golden borders and intricate designs. The helmet is a central piece of the armor and features a golden mask on the front. This mask, made of shining gold, is a personalized symbol that represents the wearer's individuality. Each warrior has the freedom to customize their mask as they see fit, allowing for personal expression within the clan's unified identity. To add a touch of elegance, the armor is decorated with a cloth in the wearer's chosen color. This cloth is wrapped around the helmet like a hood, draping over the shoulders and neck. Another piece of cloth, in a matching or complementary color, is wrapped around the waist like a skirt. It is secured with a symbolic golden rope, symbolizing the bond among clan members. The combination of blackened steel, gold accents, and personalized cloth creates a striking and recognizable look for Clan Va'eylul warriors. The Clan Va'eylul armor holds great significance within the clan, and it is frequently worn by its members during various occasions. It is considered mandatory attire during ceremonies, clan events, hunts, battles, and other important gatherings where the clan's presence and appearance are important. While the armor is often preferred as daily attire by clan members, they do have the freedom to choose their own outfits for everyday wear. However, even in their daily attire, clan members usually incorporate elements of golden jewelry to pay homage to their heritage and showcase their connection to the clan. They may wear golden rings, bracelets, necklaces, buckles, headbands, belts, chains, earrings, piercings, circlets, and other accessories that add a touch of elegance and symbolism to their personal style.

  2. (Credits to Xepphir) Genesis- Trozet Clan Loa'chil or the Serpent Born in Vel’luah, Are those who practice a balanced path of a Warrior and healer; they are followers of a way brought about by their Ancestor Waenia Loa'chil. Waenia began her life as a vengeful brigand lingering in the swamps of Axios. Waenia and her kin lived violent lives within the harsh marshlands boasting themselves as the mightiest of Mali's kind due to their isolation and proficiency in their thieving craft. Often Mali travelers found the lands inhospitable and would often find an unfortunate end through the poisonous plant life if not robbed by the residents. The deep snakes and crackadonks would take travelers by surprise. Waenia's tribe challenged and bested all of these things, bringing a sense of overwhelming pride. The clan lived by the tenant of survival of the fittest. Survival was integral as the clan soon challenged the marshland territories surrounding Axios. The Maehr, an order of warriors led by Velulaei, Malin's wisest daughter and commander in the war with Iblees in the effort to uncover the mysteries of the surrounding world through their travels, dared to enter these lands. The armed force, fresh from their visit from Krugmar and on the way toward their inevitable fate, was met with Waenia’s followers. Waenia was undefeated then and challenged the Maehr. Axe in hand, she asked for a challenge in return for their weapons and valuables. Uradas raised his glaive and took the challenge confidently. The two stared at one another as tensions grew – debating each other's next moves. They would finally clash; within just a few seconds, Uradas defeated Waenia, his blade both severing her hand and marking a sizable wound across her chest. Uradas would leave his felled foe to their end as he continued. While he remained merciless, his wife, the Primarch Velulaei, showed mercy toward the warrior. In front of the wounded Waenia, an enormous winged serpent was called upon; gracing the fallen warrior with that she was unfamiliar with, mercy. Velulaei utilized an art learned during her journeys. Waenia stood up, realizing her life was spared, and her hand returned to her figure. One who once believed in nothing grew enthralled by the serpent and its summoner. Waenia saw true might before her. Waenia and her tribe would then follow Velulaei, becoming Maehr in their own right. The rest of the story would be that of the rest of the Maehr, the overwhelming curse and madness. Waenia and her tribe rampaged various Mali cities until they finally obtained their freedom. They were finally waking up from their nightmare. Waenia, whose actions were founded on the madness brought about by the red mist, felt sickened by their blood stained hands. The former brute found a distaste for what had occurred and silently followed Velulaei during their mountainous domain's establishment and creation. The warrior remained troubled throughout the design of Velulaei's lands. Still a student, she never adjusted to the more civilized Mali, often feeling better off elsewhere. However, she truly enjoyed the simplicity of her former life, though still a fool, and believed herself strong for the sake of being strong by simply defeating all that passed her old home. Waenia requested residence within the most untamed lands, a peculiar underground lake full of treacherous marshes and the worst of Mangralins wildlife. Many of Waenia's tribe and children lingered within the territories. The wildlife proved dangerous with sickness and disease within the depths of these caves. It became more and more prevalent an issue for the wild Mali’ker As a student of Velulaei, Waenia quickly came to both a realization and infatuation with one's ability to endure stability and discipline. Waenia recalled how Akezo returned to her what she valued, now making a pact that her clan would grow unstoppable, her children unshakeable, free from sickness, and a way to live with the firm might of the Python. Within the deep lakes, Waenia’s clan named themselves after the lake called Loa, meaning Serpent. Those born within this lake were known as the Loa'chil. The locals believed the spirits gifted this lake and built perfect souls to prepare the Mali’ker for the afterlife. Wild Mali’ker established guiding principles to better themselves as offerings to Death through preparation. The lake lurkers were known for their spiritual and practical combat and healing abilities. Their experiences in unreached lands battling chaotic beasts and unforeseen foes lent them the skills to heal, fight, and feel connected to the spirits. Not long after establishing their domain, the fated dreaded civil war. The one who insisted on swearing off violence among their kind found her kind perpetuating such—a more incredible monster using her lands to conduct dark rituals in secret within the illusive wilds. Ancient Loa'chil warriors’ accounts remained vague though they spoke of the horrors infesting their lands. What Waenia swore would turn into service toward Uradas, having been first to learn of her mentor Velulaei’s demise, she vowed to be a Vindicator to eliminate the Azul rebellion. As the flame of her old violent nature succumbed, Waenia drew her axe and left behind the Vindicator’s armor, to Uradas dismay, favoring being light on her feet. Waenia took her tribe from territory to territory, lurking like a cloud and emerging like an explosion. The last of the Azulites fled, terrified by the mark of Python scales upon dark, bloodied warriors. With hardly any Azulite’s left breathing, Waenia returned to her dominion, shredding any sickness that may linger within her people, her quest not ending until her inevitable demise in battle. The Loa'chil saw little reason to flee from their homelands after the Azulite war remained until the descendants returned to Axios. Inevitably the lower city proved pointless to stay within, most of the local’s knowledge scattered and the remnants seeing little progress within their lands. The Loa'chil thought to follow behind the many Mali’ker who departed in ages past. A following of Mali’ker dressed in leathers and lurker chiton stepped into the open cold, biting at the scarcely prepared warriors accustomed to their lush depths, retreating in following of the descendants from a distance until the eras. Synopsis Loa'chil are a mix of tribal warriors and wild shamans typically adorned in charms and the hides of subterranean or aquatic beasts. Loa'chil often feels more at home within milder climates. The clan's most notable feature beyond their malachite eyes is the elaborate art on their bodies. Modern Loa’chil continues to follow Waenia’s way of life. They embrace and live amongst the chaos of nature's spirits, praising and paying respect to malicious forces to test their kin. A Loa’chil does so in hopes of becoming headstrong in both the body, mind, and spirit for life’s challenges. Notably, Loa'chil are quick to adapt or enjoy more open spaces such as forests, isolated marshes, or mountainous highlands, often spending their free time training, learning the art of survival, or zealously following the spirits all in the name of growing their connection to their roots. The clan is uncharacteristic of most Elves. Maehr can be described as rugged, appreciating simplistic familial values. On values, Loa’chil often like sentimentality over materialistic values, holding higher weight on items they crafted or obtained. Often will display affection through creating these gifts or physical means, some saying being ferried around by a Loa’chil is a significant display of love and a source of jealousy should another do it, for one exception regarding their marriage ritual. Almost all members of the Loa’chil are obsessive over their health, most often boasting the pinnacle of Dark Elves regarding sheer physical prowess and athleticism, often treating what would typically be intense physical training as a fun pass time. A Loa’chil prides themselves greatly in their physical prowess, constantly finding means of flaunting their physique whenever or dressing as a means to do such. The Loa’chil mentality is prideful companionship. They have a superiority complex regarding their clans. They often see themselves as the strongest, though in a strange twist, they want to elevate those viewed as weak. Those who join the Loa’chil will be welcome to an inviting pack of warriors and hunters and will themselves be comfortable as another component of strength to the Den. Appearance Blood Loa’chil has characteristically dark skin, exceptional height, and hair color ranges between Black and White. They are both natural and trained to have athletic builds. However, the most notable feature is the clan's trademark malachite eyes, often remarked as providing a mysterious nature to the line of warriors and shaman. (Clan head of the Loa'chil) (Art by Unnibear) Clothing, Charms, & Aesthetics The Loa'chil traditionally wear garments that reflect their rough upbringing in the less-than-welcoming marshes they called home. Their attire is usually made of up hides and scales collected from the various marshland beasts they would slay. Occasionally, however, one may find a Loa’chil adorned in silk pieces. Typically, the Loa'chil will carry a more rugged look to them. Their attire is more liberal, sometimes tattered, but usually minimal if not in full armor. However, it is common to see them donning a piece or two of armor with their more casual clothing. While meant for the harsh terrain they lived in, their garbs will often be accented with gems, spiritual charms, and precious metals they have collected in their travels. Additionally, the Loa'chil will always keep whichever limb they decide to play their family 'scale' tattoo upon fully exposed so that their mark can be openly seen. Of course, this only differs when they are forced to wear a proper armor set. Tattoos Akezos scale A trademark of the clan are Akezos’ scales. Upon the arm of a Loa'chil are serpentine scales drawn on after a Loa'chil sustains an injury. A wound healed earns one a scale, scars received, and close calls. Glorious acts of healing are celebrated through these scales as a badge of honor for a Loa'chil. Snake Taming (Credits too Matias Cabezas) Following the common trend of the Loa’chil snake, taming is a common practice. What Loa’chil tame may vary between Pythons to even more venomous breeds of snakes. Loa’chil traditionally train serpents to use their venom, though also as a pet or an aesthetic to themselves, to discipline a serpent to rest upon a warrior, fearlessly being something of a feat to most clan members. Often the shamans of the clan may be accompanied by one or multiple serpents wrapped around their bodies or one wrapped around their shoulders. How they keep them still is a mystery to most, though they are notably always on their best behavior. Warrior Culture | Devotion to Kor The Loa'chil clan directly worships and follows Kors's principles and fights in his honor. Kor is the spirit and keeper of the dead; he allows mortals to join the spirits within his paradise. Loa'chil believes that within Stargush, one is rewarded for their life. The Ambition of a Greater Ancestral is to live in a way worthy of the prize and die with life behind one worthy of song and tale. A Loa'chil’s devotion to Kor is expressed through zeal; in destroying the undead and praising the mother of the Loa'chil Waena in her prior ardor. Loa’chil expresses their acceptance and willingness of death by adorning a war paint. These war paints are typically light gray and symbolize the Loa’chil’s devotion to their values and integrity. Remnant culture Far and few know that Loa'chil are the most recent departures from Magara'lin. Their tribal demeanor and characteristics are rooted within the culture of the Maehr, known as the remnants. Leaving Magara’lin after Velulaei's demise was not unanimous. The Loa'chil were among those clans that remained until an expedition of Mali'ker shamans arrived. After a party of Loa'chil led by one known as Orion, the Loa'chil exited from Magara’lin, carrying the newly formed tradition. The remnants were isolationists who roamed the dangerous caverns in small migrating packs. The Loa'chil did the same despite all paths leading to their deep marshland-like homes. Those of the deep caverns forgot the seasons. The depths were forever humid, and resources scarce. Hunting any creature to extinction would prove dire for not just the Loa'chil clan but the entirety of the cavernous domains to survive. To avoid extinguishing valuable chiton and resources, Loa'chil would often travel from place to place to gather various crops, mainly harvesting mushrooms and hunting lurkers for all materials the creature would provide. Loa’chil rarely settled and never found themselves attached to any particular lands. Instead, their strength drew ire, love, and tribute as they went through Magara’lin. Even after he passed, Waenia’s sons, daughters, and followers mastered this lifestyle far before the lavish lords of the upper levels. The chaos in Magara’lin was grounds for a challenge for all who remained. Only the most skilled who mastered the terrain found themselves thriving. Amongst those were the Loa’chil – hardly phased by the landscape's precarious state. Following the simple laws of the modern Magara’lin, survival of the fittest, the path of the Lunar Wells, glimmers of Luara’s divine light within the eternal darkness laid throughout Magara’lin, inadvertently enforcing the balance of resources within the land depths. Spirits Loa'chil are traditionally spiritualist. However, they emphasize the collection of spirits relevant to the themes of survival. While the Loa'chil praise Luara as all good Mali’ker do, they have their own more minor pantheon of which they share their distinctive beliefs and interpretations. Taluhny aeth lynaarva (House of Serenity) (Loa'chil depiction of Akezo) Akezo- The great winged serpent is an icon of the Loa'chil. The Spirit of healing and vitality has a dual purpose and significance within the eyes of the Loa'chil. Waenia's return was lost, and the wounds endured no longer allowed the former brigand to live on and mature. Akezo is fundamentally the Spirit of healing; in the Loa'chil's eyes, they are the heart of survival in one's vitality. Kor- Death is inevitable for all, and survival is denying death. As such, the Loa'chil's veneration of Kor is one of service. Undead or anything that the Loa'chil consider an offense to their final destination is often hunted by the clan. The clan also believes each of its achievements throughout its lifespan to make themselves more valuable of a soul to Kor upon their inevitable end, enabling themselves as a proper final offering. Jevex- Hard work and self-sacrifice for the pack is something the Loa'chil must take to heart. Laziness is frowned upon, and self sacrifice is a righteous act favorable in the eyes of the pack and any other spirit worthy of praise. Dazkur- Protection and loyalty should go without explanation; clan Loa'chil acts like a pact for those worthy of such or those who can bolster the clan's stride. Dazker is a standard that extends to the clan and those under their protection. Votar- Loa'chil are known as the wild clan. As such, the Spirit of the hunt is given as a subject of adoration. However, beyond the simple act of hunting, the philosophy behind Votar is pragmatic, at best, the natural order of survival of the fittest. Laklul- Is A patron of their old home and favored swamps. More recently, the Loa'chil have paid more homage to the great Frog for its significance in their ancestral homeland. Sigurzurz- Is a celebrated lesser of Leyd appearing as a bison naturally embodying endurance. Sigurzurz is a great bison man of untold resilience. To a Loa'chil, having the will to endure and resolve to succeed is the purest form of strength. Vulka- The lady of war is one beloved by the Loa'chil. Wisdom in battle is as essential to a warrior as raw power, as a wise warrior can overcome any climb, any greater struggle, as Vulka embodies the mind of a true warrior. Vulka to the Loa’chil is often portrayed as a Ker warrior holding both a spear and shield. Kaas- Despite being a lesser of Vulka, they hold the respect of the Loa'chil; subtlety is a means of peace and not to be mistaken with cowardice. Waenia prayed to the python Kaas to conceal herself during the civil war in Mangralin, cleansing her deep jungles through the use of the terrain. To hide oneself is a means of rest and security. Taluhny aeth trukretzh (House of Troubles) Weania was one of many demons; they were violent upon meeting with Velulaei yet grew calmer upon the beginning of their new life within Magara’lin. The various shamans looked upon most of her studies with fear, often leading to her being referred to as a Witch. Through Waenia's studies, she discovered her view of the spirits. "They are as they are; some deserve praise, others respect, a few scorned." The concept of the House of Trouble is one of necessity for the Loa’chil. While other Mali complains about the world's limitations, be it hunger and despair, the Loa’chil acknowledge these struggles as factors that drive life. To leave one on their feet, challenge, and give purpose to life are all values and tenets that hold true. While considered harmful, these spirits are held with respect by the Loa'chil, not worshiped. Kinul- Disease, Pestilence, and failure are the foulest of all tastes. The disease is a test of will, and the foul taste of failure brings one to life to pressure them to become their best. Kinul, unlike the others, is also seen as a foe yet one to be respected in eternal war with Akezo at all times. Enrohk- The lady of blood lust and savagery. They are what the Loa'chil believe to be a baser nature of all things savage, wild through order; any being may be able to become orderly. First, however, one must reflect on their baser nature in troubled times. Krathol- Hunger, pain, and despair are all things that drive one to move. Hunger causes one to move, appreciate food, and inspire challenges. Avoiding pain is the greatest motivation of all who wish to achieve greatness, protect themselves, or allow safety within their ranks. Veist- Illusion and Tricks are regularly used to sharpen one's wit perception and wisdom. The wise are those who strive, and experiences bring forth insight; overcoming tricks is an experience and path toward such to empower one for their future struggles. Ogrol- Despair, sapped strength, and entrapment are Ogrols spheres for the Loa'chil. He is a reminder of what it is to be weak, a lesson to cherish one's strength. Rites of Passage While the days of Waenia are gone, the Loa’chil praise Akezo in what they refer to as the Python’s Path. A common theme of the Loa'chils trials revolves around proving endurance and resolve within lands that breed strength. Offering to Waenia- Most ancestors are open about what offer is granted. However, Waenia often prefers spoils of the hunt, typically those of more incredible difficulty. After receiving an offering, Waenia's test proceeds as the Mali’ker are tasked within the ancestral realm to seek her out within her ancient proving grounds. Honor Seeking- Loa'chil often seeks out means to find an identity for themselves and a combative challenge. Should they not be within their lands, a Loa'chil may follow a vague quest to perform a service to slay something to aid a city, be it offering a mercenary service or challenging a powerful foe. (This trial, however, cannot be acted upon should it go against the interest of the Clan Lord, typically that of the appeal of Nor'asath and the Maehr) The Proving Grounds- In ancient times, the Loa'chil belonged to the proving grounds of Mangra’lin. These lands were deep jungles with glistening lakes, towering and stout mushrooms, and the roaming presence of beasts. Walking within such a territory is for one to walk with Death. New Loa'chil are instructed how to survive, though they are forged within the Proving Grounds. Proving Grounds are often prayed upon and blessed before usage, whether real deep wilds or alternative means. Serpents Kiss- As something of a baptism for members and Blood related Loa’chil reaching their teens one of the many serpents is utilized in a ritual to bite and inject venom into the host. After a few prayers and moments of undergoing the snake venom, the host is immediately treated, thus earning their first scale and made into a Loa’chil Marriage Customs Proposals typically begin in a simple exchange of words between both individuals, akin to other traditional marriages. A simple proposal between lovers rarely, however, do the Loa’chil bother with arranged marriages, often seeing no benefit to such. Pre-marriage involves several encounters between both sides of the family. First, there is an exchange of culture, understanding, and gift-giving, and the two who are to be wed must exchange three gifts before marriage. To begin the tradition of gift giving, a gemstone that matches each individual's customary eye color is gifted to each partner; for a Loa'chil, they would provide jewelry with malachite origins, whereas another may be made with amethyst to represent the other eye color. Secondly are trophy exchanges. Loa'chil creates bonds through collective might. Both parties will exchange a trophy of a great foe to affirm that bond in strength. This may vary. Lastly is the bonding totem. When families join the Loa'chil, the family members of those to be wed will carve or forge a unique two-headed, two-faced totem to represent both families in an image representing their ancestors and a favored spirit. The totem appears during the wedding ceremony and remains within the newlyweds' home. Finally, after these exchanges, a ceremony is planned between both parties, traditionally at night under Luara's gaze. A torch-lit procession leads the ceremony. The bride is carried to the proper location by the selected carrier and said individual is one with much trust held by the clan due to the somewhat taboo nature of ferrying another partner. After the bride is carried to the ceremony, there is a wild affair followed by a rite under Luara and a blessing granted to both to celebrate their bond. Finally, the bride and groom both have their capes tied together as one under the sight of their bonding totem ending with a simple kiss. At the chosen location, a grand feast would be held with roaring fires and a wide selection of game meats. Music is a customary must, along with dancing. The afterparty is typically led by the clan with the expectation of extraordinary energy around the fire-lit festival grounds ending the joyous occasion in exhaustion before the couple takes the totem together to their home. Clan Laws & Code of Conduct On Magic Loa'chil refuses anything that may prove defiant of a spirit's wishes or that which may diminish their vitality; Void Magicks, Necromancy, Mysticism, or anything regarding the Undead, is met with disdain. Should Loa'chil harbor Voidal Magicks, they will be disconnected or exiled from the clan. They will be exterminated if Loa'chil holds abhorrent Dark Magicks that insult Kor. On Conflict Disagreements between clan members are often judged upon merit. Trials between clan members are up to the clan leader; these can vary based on the degree of the conflict. Should it be over an object or a hide, other hunters can testify who struck the killing blow, or each can simply duel one another in unarmed combat if the matter requires a more substantial resolution. Honorable Roles Clan Lord- This individual is the head of the clan and remains as such until they step down or are challenged for said title. It is not an inherited title but one earned through the Loa'chil's meritorious values though it is often given to a blood family member. An individual can challenge this title by proving their usefulness, making a case for why and having the support of the rest of the clan. Vulyza- A role was given to the partner of the Clan lord. However, this remains a flexible role as a caregiver to the clan or anything the partner desires. Taul Aegur- This is a title given to one individual with the talent to cut the hunts, preserve the trophies, cook, and cater to the clan with remarkable skill. This culinary knowledge is passed down from several generations of Loa'chil chefs. The Cook Master, in particular, is trusted with the ancient understanding of Magra’lin cooking and recipes of yore. lyeotAegur- A role given to the Veteran warriors of the clan, acting as both a champion and trainer to the new members, often guiding the newcomers. Generally, they assume the mentor role, sending Loa'chil on great journeys worthy of stories. Should anyone wish to join the clan or may be interested in a character, DM ColonelKuehl#6302
  3. The Bloodline & Clan of Valin’dar “In times of darkness, honour. In the face of evil, courage” Overview The bloodline of Valin’dar is an ancient lineage of dark elves that traces their history back to the reign of Malin, though many records of such an ancient time are lost, or incomplete at best. Over the centuries the bloodline has gone from a once proud line of dark elves, well known, and respected; to a lesser known family of ‘ker. Many of their records have been lost to the sands of time, or scrubbed from the history books from the family’s enemies; and as time marched on, the noble line was thought to be all but forgotten about by its few living members. It is said that the progenitor of this bloodline (who is known simply as Valin) was a revered warrior in Malin’s forces, accomplishing many great deeds upon the fields of battle against man and beast alike. It was not until late in the second millenia of the First Age, where the name Valin’dar became more than just an old tale. Over the past few centuries, the family has been brought back to the status of a humble noble house, currently led by Sevrel Valin’dar; though it is far from the high status the name enjoyed in its glory days. As is the consequence of losing one’s historical records, much of the family’s culture and practices have passed from knowledge. However, after centuries of searching, the current members have managed to scrape together a number of tomes that have begun to shed light on the family’s past. Valin's Tenets To live a life without discipline is to walk without ever knowing your true path - the members of this family know this all too well, and such they follow a strict code of honour and way of life that governs how the conduct themselves. 1. Always keep your sworn word - to go back on your word is to disgrace the memory of the family’s progenitor. Loyalty to your kin is everything to a Valin’dar, and one would not dare forget it. 2. Respect thy elder - with age comes wisdom, and that wisdom should be heeded whenever possible. This does not give the elderly authority over others for example, but they are to be revered and heard. 3. Protect those who cannot protect themselves - a true warrior will not allow harm to come to those who are too weak to defend themselves, whether this be a child or elderly folk. To allow such to take place in your presence is to paint a black mark upon your soul. 4. Venerate the ancient ones - all those in the family are expected to revere the ancestors, and at the very least respect the spirits. Strict spiritualism is not absolutely mandatory, though adherence to a religion or actions that would offend the spirits is strictly forbidden. 5. Defy evil in all its forms - senseless murder, dark arts, evil deeds, and other such actions are to be opposed by a Valin’dar at all costs, lest Valin’s teachings be forgotten. 6. Revere the traditions of old - remembering the history of Valin’dar and 'ker all together is very important to the family. To forget where you came from and ignore the ancient teachings is to walk blindly forwards with no path. Breaking Valin's Tenets: Aesthetics and Visual aspect Many of the ashen folk dress very similarly, and those of the Valin’dar bloodline are no exception; though there are aspects to them that make them stand apart. It is rare you will find a Valin’dar sporting something other than garb of deep dark purple or black, with varying degrees of ratio between the two colours, being the family’s banner colours. Many of the members of this bloodline choose the path of a warrior, and hence it is not uncommon to see them wearing armour; ranging from a simple brigandine and gambeson, to full plate steel. The women often opt to wear flowy dresses that highlight the natural beauty of the body, but not to the point of being un-tasteful; they range from blue to purple hues, with accents of deep and dark colours. Jewelry is a very common sight amongst the family members. The men often opt for multiple golden rings along the length of their ears, and sometimes their eyebrows; where the women are seen with single piercings in their ear lobes, often carrying some sort of gemstone. Necklaces, bracelets, and other types of jewelry are also seen being worn by its members. Most of the bloodline’s members are born with deep blue eyes, and silver white hair, with rare exceptions. Those of Valin’dar blood are usually very thin and tall, above average at that, and breaking 6 feet tall on most occasions, sometimes even taller. They struggle to put on much weight at all however, more often than not possessing a very lithe, but toned frame. It has also been noted that those born of Valin’dar have longer than normal ears. Traditions The family holds a few very highly revered traditions, some of which that are dated back to time immemorial. Those traditions are: Ah’iller Valinleh’sil’al, el’lent oem’ii pra’igne, and llir’onn fi’talonnii Ah’iller Valinleh’sil’al - The Passing of Valin’s Blade El’lent oem’ii pra’igne - Tempering the Flame of Youth Llir’onn fi’talonnii - Ritual of Kinship Trials of Entry As mentioned earlier, it is extremely uncommon for an outsider to be allowed into the Valin’dar family, and unheard of for it to be a non-dark elf; only one non-Mali’ker has been offered such an invite, and they turned it down for personal reasons, though no ill will persists. Anyone wishing to be a part of this clan of warriors and artists must complete these three trials, under the watchful guise of the Aheparron’ir. Ah'narn Oem As Valin did himself upon the beaches of Magaralin, the aspirant must take up a spear and slay a great beast. They may accept no help, use no other weapon than the spear, and wear nothing but robes. The specific beast is chosen by the Aheparron’ir, based on the strengths and abilities of the aspirant - it would not be fair to send a child to fight a crackadonk by themselves, and it would be no challenge for a seasoned warrior to face a lone wolf. Upon slaying the beast, the aspirant is to present the pelt to the Aheparron’ir, who will take it and keep it till the end of the trials. Ah'narn Niut After slaying the beast, the aspirant must compose an artistic piece detailing the battle. This can be a painting, a song, a dance, a poem, or whatever artistic medium the aspirant chooses. They then present it to the family, and if it is deemed that the aspirant is well enough connected to the arts, then they may proceed to the final trial. Ah'narn Hael With the help of a Lutamancer (ideally one who is a Valin’dar, though it is not necessary), the aspirant shall travel to Ancestral Realm, and present themselves before Valin himself in Goth’stroh, the Grey Haven. There, they ask for his blessing to walk the lands as a Valin’dar. Should their heart be of virtuous nature, Valin will sanction them as a member of the clan. Once they awake from the spirit walk, they are officially considered a member of Clan Valin’dar, and are presented with a cloak which shall have been fashioned from the pelt of the beast they slew. Afterwards, a grand feast and celebration is to be held under the moon, and the new member is to be welcomed with loving open arms into their new family. Faith While the faith of Spiritualism is not a total requirement, it is strongly encouraged that Valin’dars take up the worship of the immortal spirits. With that being said, members are forbidden from saying or doing things that would offend the spirits, such as worshiping dark entities or the practice of the voidal arts - at the very least, if they do not take part in the worship, they are to respect the faith and the spirits. Members are, however, required to learn of the ancestors that paved the way for the clan and the Mali’ker as a whole; there are few of particular note for the family, though any self respecting ‘ker ought to know and understand the teachings of more ancestors than those listed. Valin, The Warrior Poet - The progenitor of the Valin’dar bloodline, and patron ancestor of the family. A mighty warrior and renowned painter of his time, he laid the groundworks for the clan’s very culture and ethos. Uradas, The Vindicator - A ‘ker of unparalleled discipline and courage. Valin’dars look to his teachings for strength to do the right thing, even if it not the easy choice. Delilah, The Mother - The epitome of home, hearth, and family. The family is reminded of the importance of family and being there for one another through her teachings. On the topic of spiritual worship, Valin’dars are free to worship any spirit that they find personal connection with. However, all members of the family hold Kezt in particularly high esteem. As such, he is the chosen patron spirit of the Valin’dar family, representing the warrior ethics that those of this clan choose to walk by. Regular prayer and offerings to him is encouraged among the members, and take place at almost every gathering. Notable Deeds of Valin’dars During the ancient travels of the Maehr, Valin single handedly bested a voidal creature that crawled from the ocean, slaying the beast upon the shore of an island - he did so with naught but a spear in his hands. In turn, he saved some few dozen wounded Maehr from near certain death, and was awarded with a place at Velulaei’s side in her personal guard. Sometime in the first millennia of the first age, Venefkar Valin’dar led forth a contingent of warriors against a sprawling swarm of undead invaders during the Azul Heresy. It was a hopeless battle, and only intended to give the citizens of the city more time to escape; but under the leadership of Venefkar, the soldiers sallied forth into the horde and fought with such ferocity that the enemy forces were destroyed, allowing countless citizens to flee to safety. During the Inferi wars of Arcas, the enemy forces launched a siege of unfathomable magnitude against the great city of Aegrothond - outnumbered at least a hundred to one the valiant defenders were, yet Sevrel Valin’dar stood fast against the foe, felling enemy soldiers by the hundreds with his own hands; one of which being a commander of the Inferi horde, whose head he severed from it’s body and proceeded to lob it into the enemy line, causing them to route and turning the tide in the battle below the city. Valin’dar Artifacts Valinleh’sil, The Blade of Valin - This weapon is the sword held by the current Elder of Valin’dar, and it never leaves their side. It is crafted from Moon-steel, and bears the inscription of the Valin’dar's family motto along it’s blade. The Spear of Valin - This spear is often said to no longer exist, though some of the older Valin’dars are steadfast in their belief that it is still out there. Unfortunately, no member of the bloodline alive is known to have ever possessed the item, but it is rumoured to be imbued with immense power - blessed by the very spirits and ancestors who watch over Valin’s kin.
