  1. Felyx F. Colborn, a Voice for Reform! Simple contemporary oil painting of Felyx F Colborn Introduction Felyx, born in the Second age 64, did not come into the world in a noble household. He worked for everything he has gotten so far, and will continue to serve his Kongzem to the best of his ability. The combined efforts of House Colborn now mean that Felyx is granted a unique position to let his voice be heard. As a child, he worked to start the St. Carolus University which still exists today, has participated in medic lectures, climbed to the rank of Armsman and Officer Cadet by now in the BSK Haeseni Army, and is an avid Adventurer and Poet to the Royal Family. Felyx made many friends during his time, be it commonfolk and nobility alike, and has expanded his horizons by carefully listening to minorities such as Orcs and Elves in Hanseti-Ruska. This has given Felyx the confidence he needs to run for Alderman on this day. Aspirations and Pledges I, Felyx Francys Colborn, do so pledge to honour our community of evolving peoples in-tune with their conservative roots by working with the Duma to issue reforms that benefit the Kongzem in the long-term. I will be your elected dreamer of a brighter future for Haense and, with the know-how and tools I have amassed so far, vow to work hard to listen carefully to anyone who would give me feedback or advice, and implement reforms that I deem necessary for the prosperity of Haense to Krusae Zwy Kongzem! More specifically, I, Felyx will pledge to work on Seven primary points: Promote Crown-endorsed reforms to stimulate political interest of the People of Hanseti-Ruska. Introduce non-politically aligned Commonfolk Societies for greater multi-social representation in our Motherland. Stand for greater Diplomatic cooperation, including a Worker’s Exchange Programme between allied nations to foster more open-minded generations who are willing to accept the diversity of Hanseti-Ruska and Almaris as a whole. Promote theological debates led by the Church across various beliefs, using a novel, proposed technique, coined: “Deep Listening”. Work to integrate the aforementioned “Deep Listening” into the Duma, which will hopefully bridge divides between opposite opinions to reach compromises. Introduce a Koeng or Koenas Royal Jubilee, in coordination with the BSK, every 5 years to celebrate the efforts of the Crown. Introduce a “World Pilgrimage” with the consent of the Church, in order to become aware of different and opposing cultures and beliefs, to reinforce Godan’s virtues and learn to live harmoniously with others despite opposing views. These are just a chunk of ideas I have deemed worthy to put to paper. Being a soldier of the BSK, I find it important that we can avoid War as much as possible. However, peacetime is never a reason to stop training and drilling diligently. I will take my discipline and dedication from the Army when pursuing my goals within the Duma. With great Passion Felyx Francys Colborn stands by his values, and hopes to work alongside Duma members with his Aspirations, by the pleasure of the Electorates of Hanseti-Ruska!

  3. FOUNDING OF ST. CAROLUS UNIVERSITY Haense during the Golden Age of the Old Academy ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ TO ALL CITIZENS OF HAENSE, The Academy of Haense has seen stagnation and little use in recent decades. As I am writing this missive, to be distributed among Haense itself, I - Felyx Francys Colborn - am working to re-establish the Haense Academy to rival and perhaps surpass the Elysium University. With this goal in mind, and with the Justiciar, the Patriarch of House Colborn, and the Crown Prince himself to aid in reconstruction, we heartily invite anyone interested to attend orientation and the upcoming book club events(https://discord.gg/F3HuaCT2qR)! Those of the Child-Kingdom of Hoonseti-Rooska have already been invited, although there truly are NO enforced age gaps to be a student! There will be small, intimate events to promote learning and discussion at the Eve of reconstruction, with the final aim being a fleshed-out curriculum and graduation possibility with diplomas hopefully someday be recognised by the Holy Crown of Haense itself! I hope to see you around. The first events are already being drafted. Drop by the Old Academy on event-times if you are interested!

  4. * 15-18 Locked away in my symbolic room strapped to the bars of this comfortable prison I’ve known all my life. Confined to do what people expect of me, /confined/ to the role I am placed in on this chessboard. Locked away by the lump in my throat only wishing to speak but the air becomes still as the eyes stare, stare to me for I am different? Or stare to me because I am brave. Eyes that should be a doorway open and welcoming a door that is shut instead. Doors that keep the social “standard” to its quo, why, father, why are these eyes of winter so compelling to the soul? Mother, why is it when they glance with their winter eyes my feet freeze in place? No answer as I have neither to go to when I am sad nor to call for my achievements; it is only me.

  6. TO Sutica and its problematic peoples, For far too long have you all been plagued with corruption, soley bent on ruling over one another. Unfortunately, this uprising that your own people have fostered will change naught. I have seen this from up on high, and truly, all of this is meaningless squabbling. Each and everyone one of you is at fault for your mistakes. I remember the time I entrusted faith in Sutica, that it would one day be as prosperous as it used to be. Sadly, that has been swept clean by the current monarchy of your nation. In order for your war-infected minds to comprehend my meaning, breaking it down into simpleton words should suffice. JOHANNA I, the ruler who has done naught for her people, The loneliest person is the kindest. This, you are not. The saddest person smiles the brightest. This, you are not. The most damaged person is the wisest. This, you are not. You have failed your people. By having led the life of a sheltered damsel, you’ve not been able to empathize with the ones that rely on you for guidance. Your ‘god’ cares not for you, but whatever devil you might believe in is mocking you, showing you that you’ve sinned before your god. Instead of cooperating and coming to a peaceful agreement with those who oppose your way of ruling, you’ve declared war on them all. Your corruption for power has led you to find allies in the Canonist ways, with your beliefs that they will hold you on a pedestal solely on your beliefs in god. You’re mistaken. You’ve been playing a cat and mouse game from the moment you took power, and when your rule is questioned, you rely on others instead of yourself to defend your seat as a failed leader. VASSALS of Sutica, whom only desires bloodshed, you must learn to have peace. Rushing into a war head-on with the nation that you’re under will only leave a dent in their reputation, of which will fade into nothingness but rumors and myths. Once you come to terms with your futile movement, perhaps you shall be awakened to resting your blade. I doubt it. CITIZENS of Sutica, who watch in terror as their homes crumble, run. There is naught left for you or your families. If you keep faith with your nation's tyranny, you too, shall succumb to death. I care not for you all, but wish to see what you may do in times of uncertainty. I shall be watching this game of yours, Sutica. I look forward to seeing the result.

  8. Introduction I was digging through old forum posts about the staff destruction of Goodborough back in 2015, when I realized something. The idea of a settlement being directly destroyed by staff was not as common back in those days, yet is a much more frequent occurrence in modern LOTC. Since I’ve experienced the post-Goodborough destruction halfling race, and the final recovery from the instability caused by Goodborough’s destruction, I thought I’d make a thread talking about what happens when a community has to revive itself from scratch after being destroyed by staff. (The following information comes from the forums and not personal experience, so I apologize for any inaccuracies) Back in 2015, Athera transitioned to Vailor. Land at the start of the map was to be given out to nations, which were determined by activity. Halflings, who had traditionally been given land at the beginning of every map despite being far less active than the average nation, were given a 100x100 plot under the conditions that they became more active under it. This led to the creation of Goodborough, the first halfling village of Vailor. Some time passes. Goodborough becomes an established village. However, the staff weren’t happy with the activity of the village. The halflings were still less active than what was required for a nation. They tell them to get more active or they’ll destroy the region. The halflings try and get more active, but it’s still not enough. The staff give the halflings a new ultimatum: either become a vassal of Oren or High Elves and keep the current Goodborough region, or have Goodborough be destroyed. The halflings choose to become a vassal of Oren. There was a lot of miscommunication between the staff and halflings over this. There were some angry skype calls between the two groups. It’s been theorized that the staff weren’t even communicating properly between themselves at the time. Whatever the case may be, despite many staff promising to leave the Goodborough region alone, the final staff decision is to destroy Goodborough and leave the halflings to figure out the rest. So, what happens when a community is destroyed? A lot of things. Let me run through what might happen. A: The community is destroyed. There’s nobody who wants to revive it. There’s not enough interest in the community’s roleplay niche for there to be people who want to revive it sometime later. The community is gone forever. or B: A few players band together to revive the community. Through a lot of effort, they manage to scrape something together. Their first attempt might not work, but they’ve probably managed to gather up enough interest in the community for a second attempt to be possible. Leadership changes much more quickly than usual. There’s likely to be several settlements per map. Ambitious players might seize the opportunity to declare themselves leader of a community and gobble up its players and roleplay niche so that they might rule it for themselves. Eventually, after a long time has passed, the community achieves stability again. Leadership becomes more long-term. The community is more stable and has higher player retention. People rest assured knowing that the effort they put into the community won’t be thrown to the wind all of a sudden. The period of relative tranquility might not last forever, but the community is no longer afraid of not existing in the near future. Option B is what happened to the Halflings. It’s happened to other groups as well, I think. Why do staff destroy communities? Because they want option A or B to happen to the community. They might look at the community and think “Wow, there really is nothing of value to the server going on here. This should stop existing.” and then destroy it with that exact intention. This is what happened to a lot of less active charters during the Charter Reform. The staff just didn’t want there to be that many communities in existence, and thus they trimmed them down by destroying the ones they deemed unworthy of existence. The staff might also look at a community, think “Hmm... this community isn’t very active, but I’m sure that there’s enough interest in the niche it provides for it to exist no matter what we do to them. I think it would be wise to destroy what they have currently so that in the process of rebuilding they will achieve greater strength”. This is what happened to the halflings of Goodborough. The mentality was to destroy the village so that the halflings might live. (This reply to one of the drama threads surrounding Goodborough getting destroyed sums up the opinion of the staff who wanted Goodborough gone pretty neatly. It was phrased as though the staff were doing the halflings a favor by letting them rebuild and become active elsewhere. Also shows the tension between the staff and halflings at the time. It got real nasty. Harsh words were exchanged.) Destroying the settlement so that the community might live But does that actually work? Does wrecking a settlement hold the potential to revive the community who lived there? Let’s look at what happened to the halflings after Goodborough was destroyed. The first attempt to create a new halfling village was Petyrborough. It lasted for a little while, but eventually some dwarves terrorized the halflings of Goodborough enough for them to move elsewhere. So far, not so good. The destruction of Goodborough hadn’t done any good to the halflings yet. The second village fared much better. It was right next to the Wood Elf city, and it was called Willow Hollow. There, the halflings finally started to get active again. Halfling culture came back in full force, with Shogging Tournaments and festivals being held, halfling families reestablishing themselves, and other such good things. This boom of halfling activity lasted into the next map too. When Vailor turned into Axios, the Willow Hollow halflings created the village of Reedsborough, which shared Willow Hollow’s prosperity and had many festivals of its own. So, that’s that, right? Halflings were destroyed by staff in Goodborough, but came back to activity in a new village. The destruction of Goodborough had done its intended purpose. Halflings went from a quaint 100x100 plot begrudgingly created by staff due to the precedent of giving halflings land every map to a bustling village next to the Wood Elf city suitable for shaders videos with Concerning Hobbits playing in the background. Mission successful? Not quite. Halflings had activity, sure. They did not, however, have much stability as a community. They had recently reimagined themselves under new leadership, so what’s to say that someone else couldn’t try and do the same? What’s to say that their vision of the halfling race wouldn’t be as valid as what had already been created? Bahbou123456, the richest player in early Axios, created a charter on an island above the deserts of Tahn. There he created a village called Mellsburry. He was a good leader, at least OOCly. He also had a lot of friends, and he had all of them play halflings. Suddenly, there was more than one halfling village in Axios. Mellsburry kept growing and growing and growing as bahbou had more people create halfling characters. Soon, Reedsborough was less active than the new village of Mellsburry. Bahbou would literally go burrow to burrow in Reedsborough, /realname’ing the inhabitant of every dwelling, finding some way to contact them, and then beg them to leave Reedsborough to join Mellsburry. At first it was just annoying, and it led to a lot of tension between him and Reedsborough’s leadership, but as Mellsburry grew and grew, the halflings of Reedsborough became more and more inclined to move to the new village. This was the first halfling village I’ve ever played in, so I remember quite a lot about it. Mellsburry became a very thriving village. Bahbou even tried to turn it into a proper nation instead of just a charter, and he almost succeeded in doing so. Then he had to go on hiatus for a month or so, which was the beginning of the end for Mellsburry. I was chosen to lead the halflings of Mellsburry in bahbou’s stead, but I wasn’t fir for the job at the time. I eventually left Mellsburry ought of boredom, seeing that yet another village, Rivershire, was being created. With its leadership either on hiatus or fully abandoning the village, Mellsburry quietly fell into inactivity, never to see a halfling soul walk in it ever again (except for when persona creation got bugged and automatically put new personas inside of Mellsburry, which got fixed after a while). At that point, halflings were dead. There were no active villages. Reedsborough was a ghost town, Mellsburry was slowly dying. There were more halflings wandering around human cities than there were in any village. It was a dark time for the halfling race. It lasted for a few weeks or so, though I don’t remember it well. I mostly played other games during that time, since I had nothing to do on LOTC besides wander aimlessly. Halflings becoming relevant again was a slow crawl. It started with the creation of Pendlemere, a new village designed to bring the halflings back together again. Pendlemere succeeded in doing so, yet started to fall into inactivity as well after a while. It took yet another village, Mapleshire, being created in order to bring life back to the halflings. The inhabitants of Pendlemere wanted to end the map with a bang instead of a whimper, so decided to purposely abandon the village in favor of something they could get Limited Creative on. From there, the halflings moved into Atlas. Early on in Atlas, the halflings were going to live within the walls of Sutica. That plan did not work out, however, and a second village was created in freebuild in hopes of living outside of city walls. The drama was ended prematurely when one of the halflings asked the Admins for a region inside of the Cloud Temple and was given the ability to do so. Thus, Dunshire was created, and halflings finally, after years of constantly moving villages, sudden periods of incredible activity followed by near complete death, and general confusion, were able to become a slow-burning, stable race once more. Conclusion So, did the destruction of Goodborough work? Can destroying a community make them rebuild back into activity? Potentially. The path that a community must take to revive itself is full of drama, stress, anxiety, and instability, yet it does indeed hold the potential to generate more activity. The question, of course, is whether or not it would be better to find an alternative method to make a community more active. I personally don’t think it’s the best option. If the staff want to destroy a community for being inactive somewhere with the hopes they’ll be more active someplace else, it’s probably a better idea to just worldedit them to the new location. If the staff want to make leadership of a community active again, it’s probably better to hand over the region to the community’s current active players instead of destroying everything and hoping that strong and resourceful leaders will arise from the ashes to rebuild everything. If the staff want to make the community work harder to improve itself, it could provide a positive incentive for doing so within the current settlement instead of forcing them to spend the effort making a brand new place to live and roleplay in. Making a community rebuild itself does indeed make them more active after the dust has settled. Heck, my community has even done that to itself purposely by moving to a new village to generate more enthusiasm. It is very crude, and not for everyone. Even if it does technically work a lot of the time, it’s probably not the best way to make a community more active. It’s much easier to go wrong in starting fresh than it is in reinvigorating something old. Thank you for reading my thread. I shall now go back to sitting in Brandybrook waiting for chickens to lay eggs. Other stuff: This thread isn’t a feedback thread. Also I’m not dissing staff. The whole thing with Goodborough happened years ago and halflings are on much, much better terms with staff now. I’d like to hear from other communities that were destroyed by staff for being inactive yet managed to rebuild themselves. I’m sure they’d have some interesting stories as well.

  11. The Library An institution of scholars, scientists, and warriors alike, all marching forward in the name of the preservation and expansion of knowledge. The Grand Library of Dragur has existed for nearly two centuries, having been formalized in the land of Vailor by our founder, Orithur. Although the Library has gone through a number of transformations during its long lifetime, in the modern day, in the land of Arcas, the Library is located inside the Cloud Temple ring, just past the marketplace, which is at the base of the stairs from the central temple. If you’re having trouble, just look for the golden statue of Orithur standing amidst a small sandstone fountain (236, 52, -508). Design This iteration of the Library follows the previous division of literature into three wings. However, unlike past Libraries, the wings aren’t labeled by number or direction, but rather they are named categorically by the general theme of the contents within. Additionally, instead of having a large and central museum, the Library has two hallways adjacent to the lobby in which are displayed some of our greatest artifacts, divided into those archaic, and those modern. Beyond the threshold of our gate, you will find yourself in a cozy room offering numerous seats, free coffee and pastries, and a central desk at which you can speak to one of our Librarians or Scholars. To the left and right are the relic hallways, displaying some of our more intriguing and powerful artifacts as illusions (we wouldn’t want something getting stolen!). To the left and right of the central desk are short connection hallways bringing you into our central wing, the ‘Academic Wing’. The literature here is that which focuses on scholarly pursuits, such as: theories, studies, guilds & orders, religions, and works of poetry and fiction. To the left is the ‘Historical Wing’, in which is contained all cultural and racial history and literature. Finally, to the right is the ‘Thaumaturgical Wing’, in which is contained all magic, alchemical, and creature literature. In addition to the above, this iteration of the Library has a centrally located lecture and event room, behind the Academic Wing, free for use upon request by any guild or organization. You are free to request to have the room redesigned to fit the theme of your event, festival, or educational session. To the further left of the ‘Historical Wing’ is a private hall in which are placed the dormitories of the Library staff. And to the further right of the ‘Thaumaturgical Wing’ is the Restricted Section, a private wing of the Library for dangerous and misunderstood literature and relics. Access to this area can only be granted by the Caretaker. Services This Library offers a number of services to the general public, a few of which are free, and a few of which come at a small cost. Although in the past our services have been rather limited, we strive to grow and change with the times to better assist the general public wherever we can. Book Copying An age old service in which the dying art of bookbinding is put into place to share the vast swathes of knowledge we have within our walls. Any book on public display may be requested, and we offer two means by which to complete this exchange. You may have books copied at a cost of one thousand mina, per book, or you can offer a book for trade, per book, that we do not already have within our walls. Transcribing The art of the written word, the taking down of notes, stories, and any other orally shared information. Any Librarian or Scholar can be approached to take down a tale you have to share if you yourself lack the skill, or resources, to produce a book. After some minor revision and restructuring, your shared information will be publicized, less it is considered to be dangerous, in which case it will be put into the restricted section. Archiving A newer service brought about in this iteration of the Library, archiving is the storage of literature, temporarily, and at a cost. In the event that you are concerned about theft, war, or any circumstance in which your valuable books may be put at risk, you are welcome to come to use for their temporary storage! The cost of this service is one thousand mina, per IRL week, per five books. If you fail to make a payment, you will be given a three IRL day grace period before your books will be seized, and made our property. Guidance The giving of information about the world. Our Scholars and Librarians are very learned people, familiar with the land of Arcas and the nations within it. In the event that you are unfamiliar, or perhaps just looking for a refresher, you are free to approach any Library employee for an explanation about politics, nation leaders, wars, rivalries, alliances, locations, guilds, and most anything else! Additionally, if you’re looking for a specific piece of literature, or a relic, ask a Librarian or Scholar for help, and they will help you locate the item. Public Index For your benefit, to skip the line at the Librarian’s desk, read ahead and survey our public index to find what you’re looking for! Index. Employment The cogs that turn the machine of the Library are those most refined and studious, individuals with the highest degree of intellect and ethics. Our Scholars and Librarians are recruited from all walks of life, never a day have we discriminated against applicants, for we operate on a strict meritocracy. Those who fail, are removed, those who succeed, are promoted, regardless of race, age, gender, and health. With this in mind, there is only one position within the Library that can be directly applied for. Scholars Firstly, the prospective scholar must make way to the Library, and request to speak with a Librarian that is present. Once one arrives, they should pose their interest to that Librarian, and express why they believe they are a fit for the position. Secondly, they will be asked to provide one or two pieces of original work, in the form of literature, for quality and content inspection. If the work is adequate, the prospective Scholar will enter the third, and final, stage of applying. At this point, they will undergo an oral interview, during which they will be questioned about their past, affiliations, interests, magics, political opinions, and so on. The specific questions are different, and entirely up to the interviewing Librarian. Alternatively, you may send a letter (in the form of a response to this post), addressed to the Caretaker of Dragur Library, to arrange a meeting with a Librarian. In this letter you should discuss why you believe you are a fitting candidate for the position. When you arrive for your meeting, bring your original literature with you. Staff Hierarchy Caretaker - Darcassan Auceps Librarians - Slots - Argus Evaeros - Lockezi - Bastien - Celia Scholars - Airebys Sylric - Solirynir Ilmoriel Library Discord Although primarily used as a place to organize Dragur’s player and community-team staff members, the Discord is also open for non-staff who are friends with existing staff, and for guild leaders/members who wish to use our space for their events.

  12. [!] Posted around the lands of Arcas, whether it be outside a tavern or on a roadside tree, would be flyers advertising the Brothers of Virtue. By briefly skimming over the flyer’s contents, one could quickly notice that the Brotherhood offers good work, great pay, and even greater drinking buddies. C A L L T O A R M S Brothers of Virtue Est. 16th of Malin’s Welcome, 1782 Take up arms, Brothers! May a common purpose guide our travels, leave us walking a path undivided. Rekindle the embers of long forgotten companionship amidst a world racked with grief, tainted by violence. Offer your hand to your fellow descendant as we bleed out upon the same soil. May our bounds to one another remain everlasting, eternal! The Brotherhood shall prevail! The Brothers of Virtue Purpose Brothers’ Creed Contracts Ranking OOC The Brothers of Virtue To forfeit ourselves to our fellow descendants and to bleed for their needs - The Brotherhood offers ourselves to your needs. For coin, of course. Clad in their pennants of yellow and white, the Brothers extend a hand to those in need of them. The Brotherhood is built upon a code that all its members serve upon. Honor, security, unity, justice, and virtue. Such principles are applied when Brothers are tasked with a contract - the system that the organization operates on. The Brotherhood hears out the needs of all, and to aid them, a contract will be written. In most cases, a group of three to five Brothers will be assigned to any given contract. It will be this group’s duty to uphold the Brotherhood’s end of the contract, and upon properly completing it, the group will be compensated nicely. Purpose When a system fails to protect those it was made to serve, it is in the hands of the people to serve themselves. Take the hand of Virtue, we offer you our service. The cause of the Brothers of Virtue is quite simple, holding no beginning and no end. It is not built upon any primary goal or objective, instead created to aid those who can not do so for themselves. Our purpose is to take on contracts in exchange for a monetary payment. The Brothers of Virtue will take up arms, blade in hand, just as easily as they will oversee a diplomatic conference. Our work is not solely limited to sellswords, as Brothers serve for more esteemed, honorable causes. While we are willing to serve by blade, the Brotherhood does hold the right to deny contracts. The Brothers of Virtue are not assassins. Brothers’ Creed To serve for a cause greater than oneself is honorable, but to serve alongside those one trusts is memorable. The Brotherhood can be defined by five words, each representative of its core principles. Honor Security Unity Justice Virtue Article I - Honor Simply put, to remain honorable is to provide a hallowed respect to the contextualized subject. The cause of the Brothers of Virtue is one of deep respect, not only towards those we serve, but towards those we serve alongside. Respect is to be offered and recognized, and to be a Brother is to embrace Honor. Article II - Security The assurance of peace is a blessing, a rare fortune possessed by few. To be a Brother is to offer security to a stranger, willing to extend your aid to any in need of protection. The virtuous nature of a Brother undoubtedly compels them to offer guardianship to the defeated and damaged. Extending a hand to the unfortunate is always necessary, and to be a Brother is to embrace Security Article III - Unity Bound by our values and goals, we stand as one. Our exteriors may vary, but we fly the same banner - that of the Brotherhood! Unified as a redeemed tribe, to be a Brother is to embrace Unity. Article IV - Justice Justice is a fickle topic considering its many interpretations and subjectivity. However, Brothers mutually understand the principles of retributive justice - eye for an eye. The actions of anybody are deserving of justice, but wretched, immoral decisions are to be acted upon. Embracing the consequences of one’s actions is understanding the principles of justice, as to be a Brother is to embrace Justice. Article V - Virtue To define a guild by a particular word only emphasizes its importance in the group. Virtue is no exception, as the characteristic is a principle the Brotherhood embraces. To be virtuous is to live by your morals and to allow a well-ordered mind to direct you. Brothers understand their cause and do their work in an esteemed manner. We are not crooks or mercenaries, but instead, common folk dedicated to a cause of virtue. To be a Brother is to embrace Virtue. Contracts Unlike the common word, the price of a man is not determined by the quantity of mina he might accept. It is through the use of contracts that the Brotherhood aids those in need of their services. The Brothers of Virtue can serve a wide range of jobs (excluding murder, tortue, or excessive violence). Nearly any job will be accepted by the Brotherhood, but the Brotherhood still possesses the right to decline any contract they deem unfit. To employ the Brotherhood, a client must seek out a Brotherhood contractor or visit one of their locations. Upon finding one, they are to formally make a Contract Request with the following format. Client Name Allegiance Occupation Contract Brief Description Particular Information Other Information Following the submission of a Contract Request, a Justiciar will be arranged to meet with the client. They will convene and will discuss the contract’s details, including specific information, reason for needing the Brotherhood, and the payment for the job. If the contract is accepted... The Brotherhood will require the client to pay half of the fee upfront and pay the rest once the job is completed. The contract will be posted to the Brotherhood. There are two options in how the contract may be accepted - Either a group within the Brotherhood will convene to directly accept the contract or the contract will be assigned to a predetermined group. Following the contract’s acceptance, the group will complete the needs of the client. Upon completion, a brief meeting will be called between the client and the Justiciar to finalize the payment and provide assurance of the contract’s completion. In the event a group fails to complete the contract, it will be reassigned to a new group. The Brotherhood reserves the right to deny or disband any contracts, even after its acceptance, but forfeit the payment, of course. If a contract is denied... The Justiciar will politely refuse and send the client on their way. It is possible to renegotiate the contract following its decline. The Brotherhood will immediately decline jobs that entail murder, tortue, or excessive violence. Nearly any other job would be accepted by the Brothers of Virtue. Ranks It is not a ranking that provides for authority, but instead, the trust and honor that has been displayed. Initiate An initiate is the entry level position into the guild. Despite being new, initiates are instantly welcomed. Initiates are to accompany Brothers and Justiciars on contracts, and with enough experience, will be granted the title of Brother. Initiates are granted a gray tatter, recognizing their hazy, grayed future regarding the Brotherhood. Brother When their achievements and dedication have been recognized, an initiate will be welcomed as a Brother amongst the guild. Alongside the recognition of being a Brother, the opportunity to live in Brotherhood guildhalls is available, as well as the chance to aid in guildhall management, if so desired. To be a Brother is accepting the Brothers’ Creed and taking up arms alongside their companions. Brothers wear a yellow tatter upon receiving membership, reflective of their position as a Brother of Virtue. In the guild’s terms, yellow perfectly resembles their cause. Just, noble, and virtuous, yellow carries the properties that are instilled in each Brother’s morality. Grand Brother Grand Brothers, although holding the same status as a Brother, receive a greater title for their noble service and sacrifice for the guild. Grand Brothers are not to be held above their fellow Brothers. However, the title is used to properly recognize them for their achievements. Grand Brothers wear a bronze tatter, which still resembles their previous yellow tatter. The new shade of their tatter is simply to recognize their commitment. Justiciar Justiciars act as the leaders of the Brotherhood, being a collective group with assigned roles for managing the guild’s affairs. The roles assigned to each Justiciar may vary depending on how their fellow Justiciars see fit. The job of a Justiciar, within the Brothers of Virtue, is to aid in the management of the guild, alongside directing and leading their fellow Brothers. Although they hold a title recognizing their power within the group, Justiciars remains Brothers at heart. They are not to order their Brothers around unless leading a contract or settling a violent dispute. Justiciars may be appointed by the Grand Justiciar and the other Justiciars, but can be removed from the title as well. The politics of the Brotherhood’s leadership will not be described here, but it is important to note that new Justiciars are welcomed with a consensus from the existing Justiciars. Justiciars carry a tatter of red to discern their position from their fellow Brothers, despite being of the same code. Red, in particular, is representative of the blood a Justiciar is willing to spill for their Brothers and the cause. Grand Justiciar While formally carrying the title of the Brotherhood’s guildmaster, the Grand Justiciar is not to uphold their authority with an overbearing presence. After all, they remain as a Brother, just as their fellow companions do. The Grand Justiciar acts as the head of all Justiciars, offering guidance and direction to the guild as a whole, rather than a particular aspect of it. The Grand Justiciar may aid the Justiciars in their assigned aspects while possessing the role of guildmaster. The Grand Justiciar does not hold an absolute, undeniable word on guild affairs. Alongside Justiciars, Brothers may raise objections to decisions the Grand Justiciar might make. Regardless of the title, we all remain Brothers, each with an equal voice. The Grand Justiciar is granted the tatter of amber, a callback to their humble beginnings as a Brother of yellow. Within the deep color of amber lies the principles the guild was founded upon. OOC Thank you for taking the time to read through this post regarding the Brothers of Virtue! I will keep the OOC section brief, considering how long the other sections were. The Brothers of Virtue is meant to be a welcoming group on LotC that can create adventurous, enjoyable roleplay encounters for those looking to be involved in them! We use our contracts to initiate role play situations with other players, as well as creating private events of our own. These event-based contracts usually take form in investigations and monster hunting. To apply for enlistment in the Brothers of Virtue, reply with the following format: Username - Character Name - Proficiencies/specialities (i.e. lockpicking, swordsmanship, persuasion) -
  13. A bit of backstory, I meant to post this into the Darrowmere discord, though I was kicked/banned for no reason. Some may not know anything about this, ignore it if you’d like. With that settled, let us begin. As you all know, there's probably been a few questions about stuff with me leaving Darrow and such. I'll keep this short, and brief, if you have any questions you can just ask me in DM's, I rather not flood this chat with questions about that stuff knowing I'll eventually miss something. Darrowmere, as you know used to be run by Swifty_Sam. He left for Korvic Craft, Lost Fables after 6 or so months of inactivity and only really doing PVPing. I took over not long after that, I ran the bar, and did other things. Me, and I'm not going to say I did this alone cause I didn't and I couldn't of without the help of others, Jolfrey, Cats (Who totally hasn't shadow written anything I've made.), and Sophia. Along with so many others who helped me along the way. When Swifty came back, he expected to have everything just handed back over to him. He claimed he would stay away from Darrowmere, at least that was what I kept being told. When it wasn't (for I had refused priorly), he got angry and made jokes, insulted and hands down harassed me and my court. Norland more or less just shrugged this off, even despite my request, and the request of my friends multiple times over to cease. In the end, I chose to leave. Now there is a whole other thing regarding magic which, I think is a story for another post seeing as Athri never used her evocation in Darrowmere, simply argued for the rights of mages. Nor will I go indepth how they went over my head, making the decision (Swift and Sophia) to dissolve Darrowmere's government this map without allowing me to have a say or opinion on the matter. It took a plethora of rumors, and hints for me to learn this. Not long after I left, leaders got replaced, and the activity that once Darrowmere was known for faded out to other groups. Darrow is inactive again, good luck to those who would try to make it active again. I do not mean this in a snarky sort of way, I mean genuinely, I wish you well. My dm's will always be open if there are questions, or if you wish to talk. I am not a vindictive person. I will not be going out of my way to harrass others. Ever. That is not what I do. I would much rather be seen as a bad leader than a bad person. I don't mean to start anything by putting it out there, I simply would like to clear up what has happened over the period of a month or more. I will not poach players, or try to get them to be on my side. I won't force anyone to do anything. I swear I've said these things a million times, yet it doesn't seem to be heard. I hardly have anything against most of you, minus a few, which is an obvious given. I'd like to try and resolve everything, but that will most likely not happen. Have a good day. -Neo

  16. You wake up wearing a messily folded paper hat, you open it to a new buck news.
  17. Hello! I was playing around with MPM and realized I forgot how to change my skins for each selection! After a little playing around, I found a way to easily change it! (would still recommend changing it and reloging through mineman though, as not all players have MPM.) First step! Press F12 (or E then the head!) then at the bottom click the + icon. Next! Name the new model what ever you want. Then! Select the new model! And after that! At the bottom click edit. Next! At top left click the options button! Then! Go to https://imgur.com/ and click new post at the top left corner! Then! Go into your files and drag and drop said skin you want! After! Right click the picture of said skin! Then! Left click the “Copy Image Address” After that! Go back to the model and paste the image link! Finally! Left click the X and bam! you have your skin! Hope you enjoyed, sorry for the low quality guide. To be honest, it was rushed. But enjoy MPM! This is the link for MPM, even though it looks sketch, i Promise it works https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/669169858549645323/731627733171568782/MorePlayerModels_1.15.2-11Jul20snapshot.jar To get overlay to work you need to click “solid headlayer” in config to say no.

  19. You wake up this morning, no buck news in sight. With a sigh of relief you slip your shoes on. There’s an odd crinkle coming from underneath your feet. And one of your shoelaces are missing.
  20. _Adzy

    Strong

    Not 1... but 2 videos!
  21. Now that it's always night, buck doesn't quite know when to sneak into your house anymore. It gets slingshotted at you in a crumpled ball from the roofs.
  22. Buck news has been nailed to the ceiling over your head, so you can read it as soon as you open your eyes in the morning! How convenient(?)
  23. This buck news has been just tossed at your doorstep. Buck just doesn’t seem to be in the mood tonight.
  24. You wake up this morning.. no sign of buck news. you check your pantry, all of your food is there. No more holes in your window, all of your possessions intact. Not even a single smidge of mud tracked on your floor. You breath a sigh of relief, opening your closet for you morning coat when 50 MORE COPIES OF BUCK NEWS SPILL OUT ALL OVER YOU AND THE FLOOR
  25. You wake up with a buck news in your bed, and more food missing. For every food item missing, there is another buck news left in it's place. Unfortunate(?)
