Title: Whatever happened to...?
Post by: mirk_o_loio on July 28, 2016, 05:16:41 PM
So, I guess I'll just start a thread about asking whatever happened to that PC after you died.
Like, there sure are people who would like to know what happened to their friend after they died one ooc year ago, no?

I'll make a start:  Whatever happened to Flaire the Winrothol spymaster after tuluk went nuts?
I'm the one you hired shortly before. Gortok bit me on the way to pick you up again.

I feel like this thread will be wayyyyy too risky to have.
Some things are left unknown for funsies.
Or just because people don't bother to remember them.

Technically if it's over a year and doesn't have any bearing to current IC circumstances, you can talk about it.  Of course, giving out in-game secrets and such is a no no.  It's up to the players to really go into

From here:  http://armageddon.org/help/view/Rules
Quote
7. To allow players the chance to discover the In Character world through gameplay, and to facilitate our roleplay environment, we ask that you do not share information and logs of current or recent (within the last year) characters, or information that might be considered sensitive/secret.

If everyone knew that Bob was killed off by a Templar Billy on the Cuddler, that isn't a secret.

Now if Pat was killed off in some secret or sensitive way, that not many people know about, and could reveal some sort of IC secret, that probably shouldn't be talked about.

The idea here is we don't want to ruin gameplay for others.  It allows us to keep that "cool" factor when you are roleplaying with something you've never seen.

Good, so I can say this, an oft-repeated phrase when my character was around Flaire: "You're being dramatic, Flaire!"  ;D

If Flaire was a spymaster, then Hederai Negean was an elf.

jk I liked Flaire. It's sad because the iteration of Tuluk before it closed I thought was going pretty swell. Lots of different factions vying with and against each other. Good Leaders, Great Minions.

Flaire's player doesn't appear to be playing the game at this point in time. He was a newbie and it was only his 2nd PC.

Just keep it nice in this thread, please.

I recalled it being his first or second PC. I thought it was a strong showing in my brief time working for him.

But to answer the OP: he was killed sometime after the closure. Those who have the logs ought to think of submitting them.

This guy was a newbie? I had limited interaction with the pc but he once served and entertained me while I waited to speak with his noble and he really brought the aide thing to life.

What a shame he doesn't play currently.  :-[

I'll bite on this thread. Sujaal, I was there for some of his existence, I participated it in some of it in my newbie days and yet I don't think I've ever heard how his story came to a close. What's the deets?

Whatever happened to the two people, sorry but I forget your names....you were lesbians together in Redstorm and I was the assassin Eye that creeped you out and made you leave the town? I always wondered where you went and what you did. The only part of that I ever got was that you were scared and left town.

Also, same character...what ever happened to Mister Steak, I think was your name? I recall my Byn unit at the time actually broke into your apartment, stole your things, shit on your rug, and left a single coin in the shit. I laughed so hard. I remember you caught me once stealing your worm hide that the Byn, my own unit, had just brought to you and sold you. You left it in that apartment and I went to steal it so you would hire us again to get you some more....and you actually walked up while I was in the process of doing it (needless to say you didn't hire us to go get you more)! LMFAO I liked Mister Steak.


Whatever happened to Sis, I think was her name? You were my friend when I played Markus, the Face of the Guild for a while in Allanak. I died to a insta-gib whiran back before whirans got changed and just sort of left you there. (I thik Shaleah might have played this character? I can't recall. For some reason I'm thinking that.)


Also, same character, whatever happened to the little girl that Markus had adopted, I think I called her Pearl but she called herself Killa, much to Markus' dismay? Markus made a special Templar's Heart soap just for her in an attempt to get her to at least try and stay clean. I don't think she ever did. She did however draw a lot of dicks on my walls.


Whatever happened to Rennick/Rannick One-Eye who I left behind when Gage Gritshaw died? He was my most trusted right-hand man. I think maybe Rishenko played him? I can't remember for sure, sorry bud. I always wondered what happened to him after Gritshaw died.



Whatever happened to The Sandman? I recall this guy from WAY BACK across a few characters of mine. In general, I would just like his story, just because I would.


Whatever happened to Kyros the white-haired elf from WAY BACK in the Byn around the time of the Tuluki occupation and the battle that actually ended it?


Whatever happened to The Plainsman? I heard rumors but I don't know for sure whatever happened to this guy. I remember for a while he was like the leader of The X-Men or something.


Whatever happened to Sergeant Hooker Marek of The T'zai Byn? I can't remember how he died, if he died, or what happened to him. I feel like I should remember this, but I don't. I liked him a fair bit.

Whatever happened to Danu of Kurac? Danu was fucking awesome. He killed me with a couple of characters and took me under his wing with a few more.

I may think of more later.

Yeah, the lack of lore/history of the playerbase made PC's is what I don't like.  We seem to be too focused on the present and not remembering the past.

ETA: Yes, I know that most of the population can't read, but there is other ways to share lore/history.

Yeah so long as I'm bored at work and just bitching about random things that aren't going to change anytime soon today....give me reading and writing already. That would be such a new and interesting aspect of the game.

I know what happened to Advisor Danu:  he retired after a lifetime of profitable service to Trade Ops, was working on his never completed designs for the Silt Sea Submarine and then got a nasty infection from his black rotten teeth and had to have most of his lower jaw removed. 

Then Salarr paid a fortune to Kurac to let them finally murder him when he was old, frail, broken and helpless.  They did it in front of his kids.

I remember and loved a bunch of these. Thanks for reminding me of them. It's nice to think of the "good ol' days" now and then.

These days are good too, but as I've recently returned, I don't know which of the characters I'm interacting with have actually been around a long time, or which have just sprung up out of the dust from whence they're destined to soon return.

Legends take a long time to build.

Oh hey - I had Markus killed and regret it. I played Bashir, a Byn Sergeant who was also a secret whiran. He thought Markus was getting close to knowing his secret and had some other whiran whack him.

I don't think the 1 year softcap is long enough personally.

A pc being around from those days is kind of irrelevant, unless THEY are the ones who killed the person, or knowing about the death of Flaire somehow ruins something for them. I think people are way too touchy about this sort of thing. Look to the clan forum rumor posts around peoples deaths and you get an idea of just how little this sort of thing tends to matter.

I think the comment about who ShaLeah (maybe) played was meaning Sis, not the Whiran.  Snipping quotes sometimes makes the meaning of things fuzzy.  Not that big a deal, was just an observation though.

I've never been insta-whooshed away and dropped by a Whiran.  Sounds pretty shitty.

There are a handful of people I wonder about, maybe I'll look back in my notes and come up with a list.

She was an aide to my Tor and pretty awesome assassin. Really neatly developed character. She headed up a group of three sneaky-murder-types. After my noble died, she stayed with the house but I'm not sure what fate she eventually met.

I've been "insta-whooshed" and dropped by a Whiran, and it was AWESOME. To date, my Kurac Sergeant Tola's death has been the most impressive I've had. From what I heard, it was also one of (if not the singular) most depraved, disgusting, and deplorable "afterdeath entertainments" for the randy bunch of murderers that created Tola's unhappy ending.

No worries. I like to think Markus' death was part of the reason the summon spell was removed.

If it was....worth it 50X over.  :)

I remember Bashir and liked him. Had no idea he was a secret Whiran heh.

I was fairly certain The Byn had something to do with his death though since he had just extorted them for 3,000 coins.

Thanks for sharing the info.

Ysania.

A few of my earlier characters worked for her when she was a Kadian merchant. Then she lead a rebellion uprising and make Tuluk happen?!? She got a street named after her, but then what?

Is her player still around?

-----

There was a particular Borsail noble that, for me, was the absolute iconic noble for Armageddon. He hired my character as a 'secret' employee. Created a fake organization called Brekkin Outfitters. Ended up working with Pearl to design new uniforms, and I think after my PC died the whole 'Brekkin Outfitters' organization was absorbed into the Wyverns as a new unit or something. I can't for the life of me remember the character's name, but damn, he was awesome. Stole Pearl away from Tor. Always plotting. Made things happen. Crazy emotes the likes of which I'll never live up to.

Vadelorin Borsail (I might've spelled it wrong). Played by Clegane. Same period as Marie Tor (remember the one who hung out mostly in Trader's, usually at the same table every time, usually unresponsive but every once in awhile she'd come to life and emote hunching over the table, unresponsive, before she went back to being unresponsive :) )

Axe man. Bro. Where you at? It's Bal, the desert wandering elf that was literally always smoking even when climbing mountains?
I know you're out there, Axe man. We had some good times, huh...? Remember that time you lead me into some place we clearly weren't supposed to be and we got attacked and I accidentally near-killed all the NPCs? Ah... Good times.

And sheesh. I love this thread too.
 I forget the crazy breed's name that hung out with Drov (if anyone remembers him). Man, did I love RPing with that crazy half-elf girl. Literal insanity. xD ah. Good times.
I'll take this time to apologize and brag. Sorry to the rukkian that tried mugging Drov. He warned you. He was drov. Guess you didn't think you were actually dealing with Death himself.
- and to the dood that inspired Drov. His name was Krinkle and he was not only a throw away character, but a drunken one. He would go to the bar and drink and drink and drink. ... until one day you came down and inspired the hell out of him. You gave him the idea to name himself after Death, darkness, and a world unknown. You inspired him to fight and become something incredible. Kudos to you.
And Drov's scrawny mate. We were badasses together sort of. Miss you. What happened!?!

Genki's sort of mate who was stolen by he who shall not be named. That woman inspired a great story, but ultimately destroyed it with her very betrayal. But it was perfect. ... what happened!!?

Tiz. Well. Nevermind. *tear
But it was me, Tiz. Lin the lantern lady. Lin the wild.
That's right! It was me who sold you lanterns from the side of Caravan's road!
It was I that amused you as a crazy woman who befriended animals and did some other pretty cool things. REALLY cool things.

...I had a breed girl who knew a Genki.
Then I shall reveal to you the epic tale of Genki that was cut short because of love who shant be named at this time.

He was an ordinary man, like most of my characters. Half elf, half human, but unknown to him. Born to tuluki parents and raised in the warrens where he learned to be one tough bastard. He had planned on becoming a world class mercenary! And he was well on his way... he spoke to faithful lords, ladies and the like... and at first they all said no and had no use for him, but he never gave up on that idea of becoming number one and he practiced. And he was good and managed to get better.
Then he got kicked out of his living space in tuluk since he was actually just squatting in some hut. And because he was always a surly sort he was exiled from the city of tuluk with the words that "you should seek the light." So he moved to Luir's outpost where he made a home squatting in another hut. He started a family here, though. In hopes he could learn the lesson the faithful lord had forced him to search for.
During his time he met this breed woman who softened his heart that was hard as stone. He learned to love her with everything he had and... it seemed like no matter what he did he couldn't make her happy no matter how happy they seemed to be.
He also met a man that would become something of his father figure. They seemed to depend o him as the hunter and gatherer of the group so he went out to do just that very often.
Once he got into a game of three cut with desert elves. ... or something like it. He won the game, but it turned into something more, the bastards. (shout out to my desert tribes, what-what!!)

He was contacted, during this time of peace he had found in luir's by the same faithful lord that had made him an outcast. He told Genki to join a group of mercenaries run by a man named Hawk. Genki was down for this! ... but. His family. He couldn't just leave them. So he told the faithful lord that he would, of course join this group, but never did. Over and over again he came into contact with the faithful who not only admitted surprise of his being alive still, and casually so, but tried to make sure if he had been at least trying to join up with Hawk ... soon it was apparent that Genki wasn't going to join and templars don't like being lied to or made fools of. So to prove the point of being unamused, the faithful lord invited Genki for a sit because there were things that needed to be talked about.
Genki saw the trap from leagues away. He planned on just how to deal with this templar. He was going to ask his breed woman to cover him with a bow while he took out the templar himself and then the guard - who would meet him on the road outside of the city. He was well prepared to become an outlaw for his family.
He returned to luir's and was ready to tell her the plan when she said, before he could ask for help, "I'm in love with another man and I'm leaving you." It was like a blow he'd never felt before. Unlike the weapons of elves, the claws of beasts, the sting of bugs and the bite of monster, His stone heart that had softened crumbled away in an instant. He only had one plan then and that was to die. ... What would he become an outlaw for now? Suicide, no. Maybe. ... maybe the faithful was really giving him another chance. It was a last hope. Obviously he wasn't in his right mind. So he met with the faithful and was killed inside the city.
His last thought was - dang it. Didn't bio his last event.
Most likely as he was dying by the hands of like nine half-giant soldiers he thought of that woman. Just her smile and the old man he learned to respect. His last thought was most likely about the happiness that he thought he found. He didn't have time enough to remember his woman leaving him.

Ugh.  I was so mad that he was still going to meet this templar even though it was so clearly a trap.  There was this moment when she was thinking something along the lines of "Well fine, if you had any doubts about what you chose, this here is proof that it's the right thing.  If Genki will be stupid enough to go to this death-meeting obviously he doesn't care as much as he has said he does."  The thing is, she was never really certain about that choice, even afterward.  It was just an ongoing source of drama and uncertainty for her, right up to the day she died.
I loved the hut we all turned in to a makeshift home, that was actually -really decent- for a makeshift home, if you think about it. :)
When I come across kanjel flowers in game, or when I would be in a particular room along a particular ravine, I always have a nostalgic moment.  There were a number of unforeseen twists in her story, that particular experience that eventually led to flowers in the ravine was one of those twists.

Even being nearly certain that it was a death-meeting, Genki felt the only thing worth being an outlaw for was out of his grasp, so he went anyway.  Kudos to you for walking him into that situation despite, I'm sure, knowing you were unlikely to walk him out of it.

Edit: Her death is my most memorable PC death to date.  Because of stuff and things though (mostly he who shall not be named) it can't be shared openly on the GDB, not yet at least.  Maybe some day. *le sigh*

What happened to SailorMoon? She played Akasha the dwarf like ten years ago. I loved her.

SandFerret? FrostFerret or something like that as well? I had a blast with her, too. She played one of the best half-elves I ever had the pleasure of being around.

Cyberpatrol? Guy was kind of a dick in the real world but was a hell of a player. We had some very good times.

My Elf had Flaire pinned for a rat the moment he met him.

And
If Flaire was a spymaster, then Hederai Negean was an elf.

And Hederai Negean and the other Templars from that time were so badass they might have been elves.

jk I liked Flaire. It's sad because the iteration of Tuluk before it closed I thought was going pretty swell. Lots of different factions vying with and against each other. Good Leaders, Great Minions.

It was the best time I've had in Arm and I had a lot of good times.

Tuluk rocked then b/c Staff had shaken things up w. the how Tuluk worked.

Tuluk rocked b/c it had such a crap reputation for RP, so the players there put on their A-game and shit was blowing up.

And i'd submit logs. but they're not taking them atm.

One day I'll post Drazen's logs.

My hat!

Kiris stole Durik's hat with Flaire and there was an epic chase across Tuluk.  We were going to get Kadius to make 100 of them, pass them out to friends, and all hat tip Durik at once.

Also, same character, whatever happened to the little girl that Markus had adopted, I think I called her Pearl but she called herself Killa, much to Markus' dismay? Markus made a special Templar's Heart soap just for her in an attempt to get her to at least try and stay clean. I don't think she ever did. She did however draw a lot of dicks on my walls.

The russet-haired girl or something.
Hahahaha! I taught her to draw dicks on things as Drov.
We drew dicks on so many things.

... or maybe she taught me. xD

We had some cool times.

It was an interesting time in the Tuluki Templarate, and I think the trio of Yasir Arafat Lyksae, Hederai Negean, and Fortuna Kassigarh was an interesting dynamic, probably one never seen before in the game.

Yasir Lyksae was (if I remember correctly) pre-transition, but pro-transition sort of Die Hard Fanatic. He had a luxurious beard and liked hats.

Fortuna Kassigarh was pre-transition, and anti-transition. She held on to her beliefs before the merging of Negean, believing that the 'New Order' was weaker than the previous incarnation, but struggled with her emotions and beliefs in this regard.

Here are a couple of his numerous biography entries, which may give insight into the "New Order of the Templarate", and the insight of one Negean turned from a fat bookworm into a chiseled kung-fu dick, in the final days of Tuluk as we know it. If it appears to be too much information, let me know. I've redacted information that I believe is still 'secret', despite Tuluk being closed. It was well known (via the History page updates Nyr did) that Templars had limited psionic powers mixed with physical powers, akin to Southern Templars having sorcery and physical powers, etc.

Hederai's initial background:

Quote
Hederai Negean was born into a life of privilege, fortune, and above
all, knowledge.  Twenty-odd years of tutelage from the Konviwedu and
Driamusek Circle Masters, along with instruction by rote in the Library of
Negean, left Hederai a socially awkward boy and man, one given to long
nights of study rather than camaraderie or plot.  He learned how to read and
write easily, and voraciously devoured books -- He was often called Hederai
the Blind behind his back, because he would walk while reading and bump into
people or stationary objects, so absorbed was he in the contents.     It is
this absorption in the world of knowledge and histories that Hederai could
barely realize what was happening to House Negean before the hammer-blow
fell.  His mother and father protested loudly, even publicly, against the
Templarate takeover, and were not seen leaving the Heart after their private
conversation with a certain Lirathan.  Confused, stricken, and concerned,
Hederai barely knew how to respond to the knock at his private apartment
door around midnight one night -- The last night he would spend in the
Negean Estate.     The next few years were a blur -- After being
indoctrinated into the New Order of the Templarate, Hederai found his past
with Negean began to blur into a meld -- The knowledge he gained from his
youth remained, but his feelings about his parents and his other family
began to recede and fade, like a dream after waking.

Hederai's Personality / Quirks : Mar 30, 2015

It was late afternoon on Barani, the 131st day of the Low Sun
In the Year of Drov's Vengeance, year 24 of the 22nd Age
Hederai's personality is one of a cold bookworm, combined with the feigned haughtiness of a once-fat man now turned into a chiseled statue.

He is incredibly dismissive of 'non realistic plots' or 'speculation', being rooted himself in facts and primary sources. He labels works of literature without an author as AUTU, Author Unknown, Text Unreliable. He does not entertain conversations revolving around 'I think' or 'It could be', believing that it creates problems out of thin air that did not exist before, and are made reality by discussing them.

Hederai is a man of action -- Being born into a House of such in-action, and sloth, and personal knowledge gain, his transformation into a Faithful Lord has brought out a much more industrious side of his being. Whether this is by design of the <redacted>, or a motivational pull from Hederai's own essence, is unknown to him.

Hederai enjoys libations, perhaps overly so. He is a fan of spiced brandy, and smokes a little too much spice, especially after long patrols or a hard day with his Faithful Brethren. Like the works of fiction he reads, it is a means to 'escape'.

Hederai is a decent violinist, having learned in his youth from Olide Driamusek, and taking lessons once again with the ancient man. He is working on a system of music notation (OOC: Not classical, but probably something more Japanese or eastern.) using Cavilish Cipher.

Hederai is incredibly paranoid, and power-hungry. He believes that he was 'chosen' for a reason by Muk Utep, that he might live life as a Surif for so long, and be plucked from their ranks to serve as a Faithful, only serves to enhance his ego in this belief.

Path of <redacted>: Training Continues : Apr 07, 2015

It was late afternoon on Waleuk, the 28th day of the Ascending Sun
In the Year of Drov's Vengeance, year 24 of the 22nd Age
Hederai's training in the <redacted> has differed quite drastically from the <redacted>. Where the <redacted> turned the mind's eye inwards, to expand pathways and links between the psionic mind and fleshy, useless body, the <redacted> turns the mind's eye outwards -- To the minds of others. Like a probe, Hederai has found he can investigate other's minds, picking away information they would not readily provide, or simply soak up their thoughts like a sponge for later use against them.

As the <redacted> required hours of meditation, visualization (of Muk Utep and the lineage tree spread away from him), and communication (repeated mantra), Hederai spent many collected hours and weeks in isolation within the Tower of Lirathu. With the <redacted>, Hederai has taken a more hands on approach.

He has had Nori, his Aide, collect vagrants and derelicts, mutants and those without family, alcoholics and spice-addicts. Hederai has invited them for 'a few drinks' in the Heart, having them imbibe copious amounts of alcohol, and then (perhaps cruelly) using them for experiments within the jail-cells before quietly executing them. He investigates their past, their present, their relationships and their desires. He begins as a stranger, and leaves their mind as a 'friend', familiar with their details and confident that they have nothing further to hide, before he slides a knife into a particular artery Hederai knows bleeds them out quickly, and painlessly, easing them out of the suffering of this life.

Yasir had a glorious beard put it was nothing to Rhodrans!!! I loved Yasir. He will be one of my favs for sure. I really enjoyed all my RP with Julien and Hederai as well. Julien and Rhodrans trip out to the Pymlithe grove was great, as well as the hunting trips with Yasir.

Flaire was a great aide. I couldn't have asked for anyone better, and his combination along with another pc i won't name was so much fun and made my life so much easier being an Aussie player. That time in Tuluk I think was the best for me, and Tuluk had been doing so much better, the closing was a big shock. I hope Flaire comes back. Theres a log of a certain secret mission to 'Nak I'd love to see.

I stored b/c I didn't have time to do what was needed and the game was won. Can't spend 20+ hours / week on arm anymore.

Hederai and YASIR made Tuluk not only bearable but possible.

Yasir aka 'Faithful Lord Hardass', was probably my favorite Tuluki Templar ever.  He was an inglorious son of a bitch.

Having only been able to find those things on my first try 30 minutes earlier, my relief at providing the Big Game was only tempered by my anxiety that I might have just gotten a sponsored role or two killed.

"BadSkeelz Fucks Up While Hunting" pretty much characterized all my time riding around in the northlands. I once had to spam-ride through a room of gortoks to instant-hitch Flaire's inix after we had taken so long talking in a room that respawning gortoks chased us off. Then there was that time Nori led me in to a pack of clubtails and all four aggroed on me. Protector Subguild best subguild 2015. Shit, even back on Torgun I had to spam-ride through the entire Sun Legion clan (including Yasir) when they finally tracked us down on our poaching mission.

Kholdarian and Koeishna Oash were the first two nobles I ever interacted with, and they were amazing to my little newbie brain at the time, and I wonder if they're still out there. They antagonized my PC ENDLESSLY in Trader's.

I know Dyrinis and Halaster retired, but to where? Could they ever be coerced to come back? I've had no luck with Tlaloc, sadly. Maybe now with the new magick changes...

The Bynner! God. I loved Ratshet. My PC at the time was a Kadian merchant from Tuluk who had come south for some work. She and another merchant wore silk dresses in public (we were both complete newbs to the game, so excuse us our one time of indiscretion). He hemoted having a boner after looking at them.

Moontug is indeed a frowny face that he's not around anymore.  Back when IRC was prevalent, he was one of those who constantly served as an example of how to be responsible with it and an excellent roleplayer.  He was the first one who showed me emotes that weren't just his actions, but livening the atmosphere of the game.  He and I were friendly at the time that the 'It's in my Belt' log submission was made; I was still pretty noob at the time, but he showed me even friends OOC can still kill each other.

I don't miss Bhagharva.  I stand by, to this day, that what he was doing with his whole playing a Red Robe while staffing the Guild was pretty crooked.  Nothing like having the same uber NPC guild assassin chasing you around the city with no regard to her own life, and even dying to soldiers a couple times in a row, until she got you, because you did a random break in on his templar's mansion.   ::)

Sorry about Kholdarian.  When I was newer to the game, probably in year two or three, there were a few posts in a short amount of time about how to deal with linkdead pc's.  I was stuck in the Oashi mansion because of weird circumstances that I won't go into, and he was either linkdead or very afk, and I killed that PC in order to try and use his helm as a disguise to get out.  He played another PC after that, which I played with, but I don't think he ever recovered really from that lack of consideration on my part.  I probably turned him off from the game enough that he just left, which is a shame.

Pai'ta, if it's the half-breed Drovian, was actually very close to my Haruch Kemad character, known to the public as Kiraam.  That was one of the first elves where I roleplayed the internal struggle of being associated with a breed (even though it was a manipulative relationship; Haruch Kemad are literally close to no one).  It kind of opened up the world of elven mindsets to me, along with direct tutelage via email and discussion with Zagren about how the eastside is organized and works, Haruch Kemad's place in it, all the eastside tribes and their roles and relationships, and how elves are disliked not because of the things they do, but because a well-played elf makes sure they win in every relationship/interaction (not necessarily to the other person's detriment).  It's all just jealousy of the superior race, the elves.  ;)  If you're still around, pof Pai'ta, you had a large part to do with my current love of elves, so thanks for that!

Edit:  To respond to the below post, rather than derail further:  I meant from the city-elf's point of view, not an objective one. :P
Title: Re: Whatever happened to...?
Post by: Dunetrade55 on August 14, 2016, 02:20:22 PM
Not to nitpick the wording, but I believe it would be fair to say that a well played elf ICly TRIES to win every relationship/interaction (not that this is always possible but find a way to make it a win despite being a setback anyway, even if this requires a bit of, baffling retroactive rationalizing) they are involved in, OOCly, some lines should not be crossed, in my opinion. It's not bad RP to lose despite being presented with certain advantages (and who's to say that the appearance of having lost isn't setting the other party up for some sort of sucker punch). I realize that's probably along the same lines you're getting at.

But then I'm risking a derail which is in poor taste when people are genuinely complimenting memorable characters, so I'll contribute a remembrance. (so if anyone wants to squabble about it, can make a thread)

I remember, Bryl, was it? That old dusty gemmed Rukkian half-elf that once lived with the Red Fangs and had like, a million stories to tell (and possibly more bite marks).

Moontug is indeed a frowny face that he's not around anymore.  Back when IRC was prevalent, he was one of those who constantly served as an example of how to be responsible with it and an excellent roleplayer.  He was the first one who showed me emotes that weren't just his actions, but livening the atmosphere of the game.  He and I were friendly at the time that the 'It's in my Belt' log submission was made; I was still pretty noob at the time, but he showed me even friends OOC can still kill each other.

Moontug was such an incredibly descriptive writer, as well as super chill in IRC (I really do miss the IRC room), and I think I learned a lot from the way his descriptive emotes brought life to the world, too -- something I also picked up on from Clegane and Socko (both of whom I also miss terribly as players, though I certainly know Clegane is polarizing).

I don't miss Bhagharva.  I stand by, to this day, that what he was doing with his whole playing a Red Robe while staffing the Guild was pretty crooked.  Nothing like having the same uber NPC guild assassin chasing you around the city with no regard to her own life, and even dying to soldiers a couple times in a row, until she got you, because you did a random break in on his templar's mansion.   ::)

I won't lie, Ihsahn did do some pretty wildly lame stuff (though that bit about the Guild assassin is a particularly new low), and there was a fair bit of sleaziness to some of it too, but as a staff member, Bhag had a great ability to concoct creepy, fun, enjoyable plots, and I miss those a *lot* (he made a PC of mine vomit up a slug once, which I immediately wished up about as awesome, and Sanvean later emailed (or in-game mailed, back when that was a thing) a snippet of him from the immortal channel cackling about it). His conduct could've been better in terms of playing the game, but when he was just running it... it was good. It's the same reason I sort of miss Dyrinis, because while at the time it'd be things like, "oh great, another monster for no reason that's going to kill five PCs," *not* having those things around turns out to've been... well, they really did add something, I think, as unexpected as it was. It's only with their lack that it turns out there was some thrill and fun in having them around, and I kind of miss it. Current things are very exciting, because my god, *it's something*.

Sorry about Kholdarian.  When I was newer to the game, probably in year two or three, there were a few posts in a short amount of time about how to deal with linkdead pc's.  I was stuck in the Oashi mansion because of weird circumstances that I won't go into, and he was either linkdead or very afk, and I killed that PC in order to try and use his helm as a disguise to get out.  He played another PC after that, which I played with, but I don't think he ever recovered really from that lack of consideration on my part.  I probably turned him off from the game enough that he just left, which is a shame.

Awww! We were all newbies and did some kind of shitty stuff once upon a time, in all honesty. If it's any consolation, I don't think you did turn him off of the game -- I recall once a very long time ago discovering he had (or perhaps is still continuing?) to play, but I don't know if that's *still* accurate. He certainly didn't quite post-Oash, however, so you can wipe that from your conscience, at least. The two of them were great -- if I'm remembering right, aren't the wagon ruts that are STILL in the room description southeast of the bazaar from when one of them got hit by... geez, I don't even remember whose wagon it was, but hit and crippled or something? I remember them casually smoking spice in the Trader's, too, and being so totally intimidated by how flagrantly they were violating the law and didn't care.


Pai'ta, if it's the half-breed Drovian, was actually very close to my Haruch Kemad character, known to the public as Kiraam.  That was one of the first elves where I roleplayed the internal struggle of being associated with a breed (even though it was a manipulative relationship; Haruch Kemad are literally close to no one).  It kind of opened up the world of elven mindsets to me, along with direct tutelage via email and discussion with Zagren about how the eastside is organized and works, Haruch Kemad's place in it, all the eastside tribes and their roles and relationships, and how elves are disliked not because of the things they do, but because a well-played elf makes sure they win in every relationship/interaction (not necessarily to the other person's detriment).  It's all just jealousy of the superior race, the elves.  ;)  If you're still around, pof Pai'ta, you had a large part to do with my current love of elves, so thanks for that!

That's definitely the same Pai I meant. I was playing a tween (I had literally special apped her in at age 10) Nilazi that was honestly kind of 'out' as a Nilazi, but was untouchable due to being the favoured pet of two templars that treated her like a mom and dad. My character *hated* her, and would stalk her around and stare at her and just generally be creepy and poorly socially adjusted. She was my third character after I started to 'get' the game (the first being the one that interacted with the two Oash above, and a second being a Tor agent that worked for Riandra), and did some amazing things that I don't think I can really talk about, still. She's incidentally also the one that vomited up the slug. Pai was great, though, I remember meeting her player back at an APM many a moon ago, but it's all sort of hazy after that.

Bhagharva concocted some insanely creepy stuff, like the Naenn'Tru, that changed how I looked at the game forever. That being said, Staff back then seemed to just come up with stuff on the fly and inform rather than brainstorm. So a lot of his stuff was off the cuff, and like a DM that does stuff off the cuff without a whole lot of follow through/planning, there end up being plot holes. Big ones.

Samoa, I didn't realize you were still playing! That's so cool. Moontug is one of my all time favorite players, too. He does a wonderful job of inhabiting his character and evoking atmosphere and he does it all the while with totally unpretentious writing. He's the real deal.

I've had so much fun every time I've played with Socko, too. He's amazing. I just so love our playerbase. We have a ton of rad new players even since those guys have left.

Bryl was amazing. I was involved w/rp with him during the time w/the red fangs. But anything at all more than that would be too much.

I lost my PC two weeks before the HRPT fight between Nak and Tuluk.  I made a dwarf because I wanted someone with a chance not to be useless in 2 weeks time, so I could enjoy the HRPT.  He was mobbed by the Byn at the first contact and I had to flee immediately, so I still missed everything, lol.  I believe I counted 10 of them taking swipes as he fled.  I was afraid I'd fall off my inix and die trying to find my way to safety, riding around with 6 hp.

I never expected him to live so long!  I had a lot of fun with him.

I always wondered if I just never managed to track her down again, or if the grief was too much for her to deal with.

While I'm wondering, I'm curious what exactly did happen to Virren's lover after all.

Ashad.. I remember him as quite a nuisance, but he was involved in stuff and also got things done, in ways that were sometimes useful to the Templarate. I suppose he was gradually working his way up the long list of people to be disappeared, but the Deluge got to him first. It's been a long time now, almost seven years, heh.

I don't know what happened to Virren. Probably storage? I remember the PC went missing a while and then came back a month or so later, only to disappear again sometime in late 2013.

Faithful Lady Templar Qoriya Tenneshi, the White Hammer, went on to serve the Sun King for a long time, eventually retiring from public duty mid-2014 at the age of 75. She was promoted to High Templar and given the task of training the new Negean Faithful in the unified templarate. There's a lot to say about Qoriya, though much of it will always be too IC-sensitive to discuss.

Post by: ale six on August 17, 2016, 12:10:16 AM
I always wondered what happened to Torihan.  I never got to kill you and bury you next to your daddy like I promised I would.

Torihan was probably my favorite character ever (yes, ever). Unfortunately her story didn't get as climactic an end as I would have liked, but it's still so amazing. I decided to share it here, because it's been long enough, I think? But uh, March 2014 spoilers below, for the cautious.



Torihan began as a nobody who got a job in Tuluk working for Salarr as a weaponcrafter in order to feed her sick NPC father. Her daddy was a true Tuluki patriot and always pushed his daughter to be as good a little citizen as she could be, but Tori had a restless streak to her and resisted him. Her mother disappeared when she was young and her father would never speak of it. I'm sure you guys can see where this is going.

For a little over an IC year, Tori had a mostly normal and unremarkable life. She stressed about her job, she fell in love, she smoked spice when she could beg it off of someone rich enough to buy it for her. She bought a dingy hovel in the Warrens where she lived with vnpc dad. I kept her as poor as I could on purpose, because I wanted her story to be about struggle and loss, and it's hard to do that if you're flouncing around in silk. I probably got more deep into solo RP with Tori than I'd ever gone on any previous PC.

If people had been watching very very carefully, they may have noticed some things off about Tori. She was never, ever out of breath. Her hair would blow in the wind on days when there wasn't so much as a breeze. She wasn't a performer, yet had a pitch-perfect voice the few times she sang along to songs in taverns. Even Tori didn't notice this about herself at first, and then it kept happening, and she tried her hardest to just ignore it.

Then one day in the Firestorm, Tori witnessed Kradj-da Kurac get brutally murdered by an angry half-giant. The shock of the bloody scene gave her an overpowering need to flee. The Faithful showing up soon after didn't calm her at all, in fact it only strengthened the urge. For some reason, she started hearing the words of a lullabye in her mind, one her mother had used to sing to her. She couldn't get it out of her head. She went home, and smoked all the spice she could afford. It only helped to calm her a little. So she went up on the roof of her tenement building and started singing the lullabye to herself. She started floating. At first she thought it was just the spice, but it wasn't.

Tori was in a constant state of terror after that. She kept her mind walled as much as she could. She tried desperately to pretend nothing was wrong, that she was normal, to resist the magick she had awoken inside her. But of course, she couldn't hold it back. Every so often, she would sneak up onto the roof of that tenement in the warrens in the dead of night and whisper her evil spells.

Around this time, Torihan went along on a Salarri business trip to Allanak. Being a Tuluki in Allanak, she got the expected amount of harassment, and somehow even managed to attract the ire of Ellandris (Lana) Borsail, who would continually harass her via the Way thereafter. This becomes relevant in just a sec.

I can't exactly relate the circumstances of how on the GDB, but one night in her tenement, Torihan lost control of her powers and killed her father. (Taijan actually created an NPC father for me to kill, which was so absolutely amazing - I'd intended it to just be a solo RP scene.) After murdering her father, Tori was in a total panic, so she asked her lover (a fellow named Jak, played by a relative Arm newbie as I recall) to come over and save her. I basically was resolved to put my character's fate in Jak's hands at that point; if he had killed her, it would have been a more than fitting Tuluki end. But instead the power of love prevailed. Jak and Tori buried her father's body in the tenement room itself, since it had a dirt floor. From then on I left really incrimidating HEY THERE IS PROBABLY A BODY BURIED IN HERE ldescs in my apartment, but nobody ever broke in while Tori was still living there to my knowledge.

As one might expect, this whole thing basically turned Tori into a self-loathing, terrified, suicidal twisted mess of a person. My goal all along was to hit the emotional payload of being a Tuluki mage who experienced actual loss as a consequence of manifesting, and man, I hit it in spades. Tuluk was actually really scary to play in OOCly while knowing at any point I could be arrested and killed just for being a mage, but the conspiracy and murder angles of the story were just as fun to play. I kept Tori there because she had nowhere else to go, from an IC perspective, and also because I wanted to play out a scary and suspenseful story rather than go run to safety somewhere less threatening.

There was actually one point after all of this where Torihan was a witness to a death in the Sanctuary (some guy came in and attacked someone and was then pulverized by soldiers). Witnessing this actually got her a closed-room interview with not one but THREE Faithful Lords. I was pretty sure she was going to be discovered and die during this, but somehow she survived. Just a bit later one Faithful Lord Theron tracked her down in the Tooth with more questions, which Tori answered as truthfully as she could while leaving out the interesting parts, like how she murdered her own father, or how her mother was disappeared. Luckily, Faithful Lord Theron didn't press her hard - in fact, he seemed more interested in Tori's short trip to Allanak and her encounters with Lana Borsail. Apparently Lana had been telling the northern templars that Torihan was a southern spy as part of her vendetta.

Tori was strong enough by now that murdering a southern noble was a possibility, and she was crazy enough to do it, and had nothing much left to live for anyway. She believed Lana was the reason she'd attracted the Faithful's attention, and if she could just take her out, she could live in peace afterward. The first Ocotillo Festival was happening right around this time, so Tori began making plans to attack during that.

Inexplicably to me, the very next day Theron got into Torihan's head and told her something along the lines of "Hey, come meet me at the Heart. I know you're a magicker". Needless to say she was gone from Tuluk faster than you could say NOPE. I have no idea how Theron learned about her (but there were plenty of ways she could have slipped up by then, so it wasn't that surprising), and I also have no idea why he gave her such warning. It felt kind of like Theron wanted her to escape?

So, Tori fled Tuluk for good. At this point the only person she could speak to, ironically, was Theron himself (she was too afraid to speak to any of her old friends and acquaintances, as she didn't want them being killed for associating with her). She made her attempt on Ellandris Borsail's life, and failed (somebody nerf templars pls omg). At this point I was running out of things for Tori to do... she was lonely and isolated, afraid of both major cities, and unable to find anyone to connect with in Luir's or Storm or elsewhere.

I did think hard about having Tori return to Tuluk and let herself be executed, and it's possible that may have eventually happened.  But, for RL reasons, I ended up having to store the character. So I guess, to answer the question, Torihan just sort of faded away into the wind somewhere. I still miss her.

Hopefully somebody else enjoyed reading this, but even if not, I really enjoyed writing it.  :P

What happened to Merchant Ita of Salarr?

I don't have the full facts on it, but I have a little bit of the circumstances.

My understanding is that Salarr wanted to transfer Ita to Allanak for the foreseeable future. She donated a massive amount of coins to Poet's Circle (she was an Apprentice bard, I want to say Irofel), gave her Arabetti owl away for a friend to watch, and wasn't seen again for a very long time. It was sort of assumed then that she had stored.

However, that was not the case, as a very long while later she appeared again. If I recall (I could be wrong), she was no longer a Merchant at that point, having been demoted in Salarr (I believe part of the reason being a lack of activity). I also believe that the Circle wouldn't let her reclaim her Apprentice status, either, unless she proved herself to them. They had doubts to her loyalty (remember, that time she was away, she was virtually in the south). She wasn't happy with the situation.

I think she stored shortly after that, but I don't know that for sure.

I remember this scene as Red, the youngster trickster extraordinaire, when somehow he told Qoriya that he saw some speshul physician's toolset that was mastercrafted by Ashad Lyrun, my own long past character. I remember Qoriya got all twisted up about someone else owning that toolset, violence in her eyes and everything. Knowing the background story was super fun.

I played Theron and although most of that characters life was a disappointment, and largely my own fault, I think one of the more interesting parts of his life was his interaction with Torihan.  You're an amazing roleplayer, I must say.  If I didn't kudos you, I will now.

You're also correct.  I wanted you to escape and kill Ellandris, so we could pin it on a certain sorcerer.  It didn't work out that way, as Arm rarely does, but it was a fun time.

I played a friend (?) of Ellandris Borsail, who knew about her kidnapping. It's cool to know there was a whole fleshed out character on the other end of it. Thanks.

This is a textbook example of how great this game can be when all the stars align. I played Ellandris, and to her, persecuting Tori was just a thing she did because she was bored (and because I think nobles should be horrible sometimes. Also because I thought you were an awesome roleplayer and needed an excuse.) It's really cool to read about the backstory behind everything that happened on Tori's end. Thanks for playing along and behaving in such a realistic, thought out manner.  If you had managed to kill me I wouldn't have even been mad!

D'awwww. Thanks guys.  :-[ I was surprised when I heard Torihan was even mentioned in this thread. Who knew a crazy whiran who's most notable achievement was a foiled assassination attempt would be remembered two plus years later?

Honestly I'm glad I failed to kill Lana, OOCly -- it probably ended up being a better story than had I succeeded and then had to store shortly after anyway. Luckily despite racking up lots and lots of kills on my templar back in the day, I still sucked at PvP.

(SuchDragonWow -- the Theron/Tori interaction was definitely awesome. It was great to see a Faithful react to me in a way that wasn't "filthy abomination, I shall kill you in the most one-sided and expedient way possible!" Though of course if you had done that it would have been fine too.)

I can't exactly relate the circumstances of how on the GDB, but one night in her tenement, Torihan lost control of her powers and killed her father. (Taijan actually created an NPC father for me to kill, which was so absolutely amazing - I'd intended it to just be a solo RP scene.) After murdering her father, Tori was in a total panic, so she asked her lover (a fellow named Jak, played by a relative Arm newbie as I recall) to come over and save her. I basically was resolved to put my character's fate in Jak's hands at that point; if he had killed her, it would have been a more than fitting Tuluki end. But instead the power of love prevailed. Jak and Tori buried her father's body in the tenement room itself, since it had a dirt floor. From then on I left really incrimidating HEY THERE IS PROBABLY A BODY BURIED IN HERE ldescs in my apartment, but nobody ever broke in while Tori was still living there to my knowledge.

A certain Faithful with a glorious beard and hat found this and began to try to find WTF happened. Nothing really came of it.

I played Arj, also.  Arj and Ayla were lovers but we never really roleplayed that out much.  They met in the Luir's market when he was still working for Kurac, and he had a huge soft spot for bards, as anyone who knew him would know.  They would eventually have a daughter, Sera, who was playable age by the time of his death, and we had a few people ask if they could play her, if I remember right.

Ayla died in childbirth.  I'll always feel bad about this one.  The player is a very sweet person who offered to store for my comfort.  Basically, I found out she was played by one of my pals, and I have trouble portraying things properly when I know who is on the other end.  I was going to store, and she stepped in and said, 'No, don't, I will.'  I feel like I could've come up with a better solution.  I'll leave any further discussion up to her, but Ayla was a great PC.

Dar! I remember Red! He was so extremely fun! I was playing Emme, this little blonde Kadian sort've but not really hunter, and we had such good talks and good fun. She was such a lay about. I was like, I'm going to see exactly how much of a lay about I can be and mooch as much as it's possible to, without doing any work whatever. She took these instrument lessons from a bard and was always just HORRIBLE at it. I sort've meant for her to improve, but she never did. She make the strings sob for mercy.

What happened to him! I looked for him for months after and you were gone.

Whatever happened to Holten Ironfel? Did the Plainsman finally get him? That guy was the best bard I've ever seen. I like how he wasn't so much concerned with the performance arts and was more concerned with history and stories.

That was ages ago, heh. Memory is hazy but I believe he died in a flash powder accident. I didn't like his poetry style but I later modelled my own Irofel after how I perceived his personality.

I mean. That HAD to have been Creek but it was so long ago I don't remember being a Bynner and Salarri. Gavin was both, but he wasn't a Legionnaire and was also as boring.

I'm going to have to disagree with you about Gavin. He was certainly not boring and I enjoyed interacting with him quite a bit.

It IS true that he never accomplished his goal, which as I recall was to be a renown gladiatorial warrior of Tuluk. I don't think it would have been impossible, but I think that his approach (working in Salarr) didn't lend itself well to goal realization. The trick of Tuluk is always affiliations and taking advantage of organizations and connections.

At the risk of derailing the thread, here's some brainstorms on how it would have been possible to accomplish something like that in Tuluk:


The most difficult part of the situation at the time was that a regular sparring/training session would have been very difficult. The Partisan's Arena sparring portion had been closed by staff, making it extremely hard to spar cross-organization or practice together, and the Tribal Levies had not yet been created. Thus, any proposal would have needed to have strong merits other then merely combat practice/training.

Anyways, sorry if that was a ramble. I was hoping to give you some insight into how to realize goals, since it seems to be discouraging you. A lot of the same types of approaches can be applied to Allanak for any given goal.

Ratshet? Bueller?!
Title: Re: Whatever happened to...?
Post by: Riev on August 17, 2016, 08:52:29 PM
Well, initially he started off Tuluki. He knew he needed to learn to fight like a gladiator, so he joined the Byn. While with the Byn, Agent Tasok offered him a VERY lucrative position and the chance to go back and be stationed in Tuluk. I was still under the old guard where you had to be with Salarr for <x> years before you could leave, but at the time he REALLY felt it was his only way to get 'back home'. He eventually gave himself to the Dasari, and wanted to be a cook/chef/own his own patisserie. (its actually because of him that a VERY favored tart recipe exists again).

Back on sortof topic:

What ever ACTUALLY happened to High Templar Elithan? I was there for Serilla, but I feel like I don't remember Elithan's departure at all. And that one Guild Leader that was a mutant, and also a Sarge in the Byn? Whoever that was, that guy was hardcore.

Doshek was killed, but I don't know more than that a Blue robe and other Guild members were involved. The names Rujileto and Little come to mind.

Elithan retired in 2009, around the age of 80. Maybe the player will provide more details.

Yeah, Chaska, my Jul Tavan mostly played in Tuluk, was allowed to store-unstore a couple of times because he was so long-lived that I needed breaks once in a while (probably not something they would allow to do nowadays)

He was with the same mate for more than a RL year which was also strange because I didn't know the player at all but we would see each other almost daily.

Now when you say tall, is that from sand to top of their head?  Or their length?

I'd always been under the impression that was length, which was still downright frightening, but if it's the former, that's fucked up and I think we need flamethrowers in game.

Sorry, I misspoke about their size, they are actually more like 9 feet ("over 7 cords'). And that is "from leg-tip to leg-tip." There's no indication in the desc of how tall they are. If they're based on real life tarantulas, then presumably they are 3 to 4 feet tall when they are crouched down?

Musadir, he was a cool dude up in Tuluk back in the day, seemed like he was seriously in some shit.  I think he was an assassin for the Faithful or something?  I hated how my militia corporal died on that guy and always wondered how he ended up getting on.

Tasim, he was I think a Tor something or other, my Kadian character Jan's lover.  I kind of wondered how his shit went after I stored (sorry dude).  And also Sergeant Syl (Borsail Wyverns, god I loved that character) and Xing (a hunter that I loved playing around back then).  This was all 2010ish.

I've played Shaze. Let's just say that his service got him so involved in things magickal, that bad things were simply bound to happen. One way, or other. Shaze was during a very rare period in my life where I actually had 'time' to play. It was my second Aide character in my entire gameplay. My first one was Sop the Borsail kid, but I stored him for some reason that I dont remember and went inactive from Arm for a year.  I thoroughly enjoyed playing with Takharion. So much, that I havent manifested as a Nilazi for many rl months, pretty much the entirety of his service to Takharion. Only when my IRL respite was ending and I knew I will become very very scarce and too rare to be an affective aide, I've actually allowed myself to manifest and well ... the rest I'll keep unknown.

A lot of practical sorts tend to be, the only way you can permanently engender discipline in Arm is by being a hardarse.

And particular people like Salarr need to be willing to step aside from the Law to get stuff done.

Bear in mind my perspective is from a military man in Allanak who rarely if ever saw people not from Allanak 'behind the scenes'.

Lots of the old crew from the era, I already know the endings of, but -

early 06 - late 07 end of the world times:
Expansion Division - Bryn? Hawk? Arun? I know Bryn wound up in Tuluk, and I know Arun we SUSPECTED of being a traitor.

Serba?

Venom?

Deadeye? (I know there've been several; this one was of the less-than-savory celf persuasion.)

Pretty sure Githclit killed Arun, or had him killed. I forget.

Ontopic: I dont remember many people and actually dont think many people remember me either, kind of sad considering I have been playing a few years now, but I chalk it up to having a terrible senile brain (despite being young still)

Bryn became the aide to a Hlum noble, Ranak. At some point he insulted the Lirathan Precentor in public and left Tuluk. I think he joined the Byn and died after backstabbing a silt worm...

I honestly thought that was a super cool path for a Hlum noble, to actually marry into a House with a REAL noble wife.

I don't think it led anywhere other than a few fizzled ideas and what felt like a quick storage. But what a great way to have PC representation that "In Tuluk, we are ALL his Chosen People. You just might not know it yet"

Yeah, I actually could have played in Lyksae even longer. The House was open at the time, and I had a few apped in Lyksaen Warriors (Armaddict played one, briefly). Two of the three died after a RL week, and I had already been playing the role for over a year and a half. RL circumstances popped up, and I figured it was as good a time as any to call it quits and say Ranak did lead a great life thus far. Lyksae was closed after I stored, and I felt like a doofus.

Barkin's death actually set off a staff-backed plot to get back at Tor for the Warrior's death. RL years later, when everyone had forgotten about it, Qoriya convinced Lyvren the Blue to grab Barkin's greatcloak from the Tor academy office where it had been hanging on the wall as a trophy, and send it back north as part of some deal. It was a very interesting dynamic between Lyvren and Qoriya.

Damn, yeah, Albie was like, THE iconic, newb helping half-giant who showed me the ropes, sometimes deliberately incorrectly. I remember when I was like, oh god, this Byn grind is boring, someone save me, and then... the Albie arrives from the south, rejoice! Could always count on Albie to help you out and point you in the right direction, he was like a fixture, he was so badass that a full-blooded elf decided he was an acceptable mount and would ride around on his shoulder. I was SO sad when Kadius got his contract, felt like the Byn had a big hole in it. Albie was a skilled mediator, in that he didn't really do much other than encourage you to cheer up and push through, and usually that was enough to defuse a shitty situation before it could roll downhill.

I couldn't play a HG as well though, and after my experience playing one, I have to say, it's really not the role for me.

Staff probably did (because the PC vanished shortly afterwards), it wasn't on the half-giant, just the elf riding him about. I know MY elf went NUTS after Albie drug him out of the gith wagon (OOC: I was linkdead and they would have eventually respawned and possibly murdered my PC on the second or third respawn), but it was k ind of funny and cute when you were a newb breed and didn't know any better, later I was like, oh fuck, that was BAD.

My elf was like, if you ever speak of this to anyone, the secret elf council will have me murdered, so please, do not... you have, my grudging thanks, but, I need time to think about this. It was not a fun experience RPing through that when my PC was broken emotionally from the background I provided him. I was like, holy shit, I got drug. But the harsh tone to elves riding takes a funny tone in meta humor, like, if you want to take a barstool from an elf, just drag it around, they'll get off.

Don't feel bad because your character didn't do some big, mega-cool thing. Because in Armageddon MUD, even the small things have an impact and while you may not have had your character mentioned, I guarantee somebody probably remembers them and may have been influenced by them.

Before this thread gets hijacked, I'll put it back on the rails.  Whatever happened to Danashj?  I was playing Hurlen-da Kurac at the time and it was very early on when I wasn't sure who he was, yet.  We talked quite a lot over the Way and I think it helped me get a sense of who he was and then she just kind of vanished.  If I recall she was Koranth's aide and that was a scary spot to be.

Oh that was me. :)
After many years of playing (my first PC was 2001) Seren (aka Lucky) was actually my first and only Bynner.
The Byn was a really busy clan at that time and it was fun and new finally having that combat-clan experience.  Besides that though, I really just liked that character and the RP and relationships she had with various people.

That rainbow hair was tedious to maintain!  I spent many leave days junking dye packets to re-dye that hair.
I occasionally had help with it and those little moments are some of my favourites from Lucky's life.

Lucky was awesome.  And the Byn at that time was pretty epic between her, Koman, another Sarge who may or may not still be living, Drogan, Rolan, Heejo, and a bunch of other crazy bastards I can't recall at this moment.  My recollection is that Albie started to drift away from the Byn at approximately this same period due to a couple of things, including the Byn re-establishing operations in the North (which was a really big deal to Albie - he hated the filthy Northy Witches) and some other things.  He was still "henching" for Fale at times and eventually went over to Kadius on a brief but supposedly very well-paying short-term contract.  I think it actually broke Albie's heart when he felt like he had to leave the Byn.  He had been in for over 20 game years at that point, I think.  Best HG I've seen.

Was always iCly ambivalent to Heejo, my characters couldn't tell if they wanted to hug him or slip poison into his booze. Well played character, lots of depth and fun, and he'd involve you in some good shit even if his PC didn't like you, or maybe they did, was hard to tell. Definitely a powerful PC you could hate the shit out of and they wouldn't just come over and curb-stomp you into oblivion, which is something to be thankful for. My only objection to his leadership policy was the whole "no sharps allowed" thing, but that was completely allowable as his decision and was likely a general consensus with others he assosciated with. I never did know if that policy was inspired by the simple fact that they slowed missions down, or a certain bad event having a long-term effect.

Koman was pretty awesome too (loved those raunchy tunes, btw). Lots of memories. Great PCs guys, shit. Lucky was cool too, didn't get to interact with her as much, definitely pulled the whole breed thing off well, without it leading to the untimely demise of her character, was fun to talk to on off days about backstory, hair dyes, flowers, and random events that had happened. Drogan was cool too. Then there was that fat, trinket-bearded merchant, Harar or something? Guy had some kind of weird long-term master plan I never did figure out, ah well, wanted to see what it was, but wasn't so fortunate.

Harar was awesome. His master plan was actually to put together an independent group along with some other well established PC's during that era who had all agreed to throw in together secretly when the time came. He was in the process of making uniforms for the group and seeing about the prospect of getting a warehouse and eventually a wagon.

The end result was supposed to be more or less Firefly in Zalanthas riding the wagon around, taking jobs, and looking for trouble/profit.

Sadly, he ran into some barriers that prevented him from ever getting it really going.

Markus dying was Sis' last straw. I as a player was fucking pissed cause I really wanted Sis to use do X and Markus was the right one to really turn her into what she could have been. She ended up up north, was made into a spy and I retired her when mushashi asked me to play a delf.  Incidentally, my d-elf got dead from the same "psycho" whiran. I hope that bitch got karma docked.

Not quite sure who you mean, but I would guess they stored.

I think they did, but that one heck of a cool lord.

Man, especially with the earlier days the Byn was just fucking amazing, because when I was a noob back then that would be my number one spot to go to. I was there from the time I had my character beaten the shit out of when he didn't answer properly to Lucky up until the very end. Koman and Heejo were also some of the best PCs I've ever been around, and the same goes with the Templar Twins back when Tuluk was still around.

Let's see, OH! Pikks, dude was fucking a legendary badass! Loved that guy, and Niall made the Byn playable and enjoyable for me, and Murdle the unbreakable, the ever-present murder-stump Sarge (actually essential to have one of these for taking out the trash). I remember a LOT of wild plots with those three Sergeants involved, was a GREAT, game defining experience for me. Then there was Gavin and his fucking chair (whatever happened to that chair?), and Silteye wiping boogers on my breed when they were both Runners (yes, I saw those hemotes, but I decided my PC likely wouldn't notice, also wiping boogers on the breed decked out in gith armor is kind of redundant). There really was this weird, crazy dynamic going on at that time that I seriously enjoyed, every moment felt fresh and exciting. OH, and Harle, she was cool too.

Then outside the Byn there was Materi (I think that's how it's spelled, been so long) and another merchant whose name I wish I could remember, and Lin the lantern-seller who tried to sell my first PC to gypsies, then got me near ROFL stomped by a carru, I was straight out of chargen and was like, OMFG this shit is so intense.

I think it was more of a stool than a chair. It was his "We're out on contract and fuck if I'm standing around" seat. I HONESTLY feel like a gith stole it from me during an altercation, and he just always had more important shit to do than make himself another one.

It was probably stolen by a noble and still sees use to this day. I know if I was rich and powerful, I'd be like, (swirls ~goblet) That Bynner looks so comfortable in the field. Aide, I must have that chair, see to it.

I have the best memories of playing around Heejo (and Lucky and Koman and the sarge-she-who-shall-not-be-named) as Drogan (and at least one other).  One of the tops had to be busting the soldiers of His Arm about The Valley of "Should Have Sent the Byn in the First Place" when the Byn had to extract some folks from like... all of the spiders.

Also, manipura beat me to +10'ing that Rahnevyn rocked as an Imm.  Just all around great times and these months are 100% the reason I kept playing Arm.

Totally agree with that sentiment and that period and those players are the reason I recently came back after getting frustrated over too many stupid deaths shortly thereafter and taking a break for about two years. Made me super happy to maybe see that person we aren't talking about who is rumored to still be kicking around but probably isn't and potentially never existed in the first place.

That crop of Bynners (including Niall and Pikks) that we took out on a 3 Hour Silt Cruise was definitely a lively bunch.

I've long wondered what happened to Kalila and her sister Sergeant Taleer, and their mute little brother Bish. Last I heard of Taleer was her getting bit on by a bahamet up north. I believe something came up with Kalila's player and they couldn't play for awhile (there was an IC illness rationalization) but she and my character just drifted apart. I hope they still play.

No apologies to the pickpocket who I threw off a balcony for (accidentally) insinuating that he might have known anything about Kalila's disappearance, though.

I'm trying to remember the name of a noble from Tuluk. He was described as corpulent, and hired me on my first ever PC. I remember I took a couple week break moving back from my internship for a last year an college and never managed to contact him again, or the guy who taught me how to not die who worked for him. I still remember collecting gemstones to give as a gift, and the guy who showed me where they were losing his shit when I found like 5 in a row by pure dumb luck.

Dragean, with too many damn titles to remember, had a courier called Sivridel, who seemed to sort of be his right hand man for a bit.  At least for the short bit of time that I knew him with my very first merchant.  I made a couple friends/acquaintances early on with that PC and was annoyed that she died early and didn't get to actually be secret partisan or apprentice to any of them.

I enjoyed Dragean. When I was playing Red, he would share Tuluki lore and historic lectures about various stuff. I almost agreed to join his group when he mentioned he had ovens with draft hoods and I could Mastercraft any type of Candy I wanted. But at that time I had a flare of breediness, a suspicion of being set up to be killed, and I was really tired of playing the Tuluki scene, so Red ended up doing other stuff. But Dragean was definitely an awesome dude. I offer respect to anyone who is capable of bringing life to a scene, and a wealth of lore and backstory at a whim.



Another awesome Noble that I enjoyed playing with was Iancu Oash. I really liked how he drove his wagon. He brought to life the parking woes of having a personal wagon, as well as road rage/racing when he bypassed other wagons, or manuevered through the crowds and streets. I loved watching him drive wagons. It's sad when you infiltrate a house and enjoy spending time with your Mark then with your own kin.

Had some very good times around Dragean "Lord Erector" Tenneshi, and his wife Aristarche. It caused a lot of headaches, but I really enjoyed the Tenneshi/Winrothol rivalry throughout that period. Always fun, but often predictable, guessing which "side" new nobles and templar PCs would take in that mess. The quality of the roleplay from Dragean and also Sinjinn Sjir was always inspiring and uplifting to me during that time. Tuluk was poorer after the three of them had stored.

I think personally the interaction between Dragean Tenneshi and Raleris Winrothol was some of the best Tuluki RP I have seen in my various stints in Tuluk.

I think a lot of commands and decisions got made to spite one by the other though, at some times.

My Elf had Flaire pinned for a rat the moment he met him.

And
If Flaire was a spymaster, then Hederai Negean was an elf.

And Hederai Negean and the other Templars from that time were so badass they might have been elves.

jk I liked Flaire. It's sad because the iteration of Tuluk before it closed I thought was going pretty swell. Lots of different factions vying with and against each other. Good Leaders, Great Minions.

It was the best time I've had in Arm and I had a lot of good times.

Tuluk rocked then b/c Staff had shaken things up w. the how Tuluk worked.

Tuluk rocked b/c it had such a crap reputation for RP, so the players there put on their A-game and shit was blowing up.

And i'd submit logs. but they're not taking them atm.

One day I'll post Drazen's logs.


Drazen. Best elf, criminal, trader I have even seen, with an amazing personality.

Drazen was the greatest criminal PC I have ever played with. I am bloody glad you still play. I was Zuun/Threeleg, OOCLY I knew obv. my PC would die in Tuluk but thought I would play it out, and those times were some of the best hanging out with you.

I still grin when I think of the sloppiest murder ever committed by career criminals.

I still wonder how so many soldiers, Templars and HG fit inside my shoebox apartment for the death scene.

Julien and Rhodrans trip out to the Pymlithe grove was great, as well as the hunting trips with Yasir.
I forgot to respond to this, but Julisen was so hella gay that she didn't notice or understand things like that trip to the Grove, which was effectively a date. Poor Rhodran (and the other male PCs who chased after Julisen who never noticed or registered they were after her).

She was instead banging her 14 year old templar cousin, and helpfully explained to Yasir how women work after Yasir got a sex slave.

The "rasp" "wheeeze" original Dealer was killed by a drovian. I enjoyed that dude. I loved to hang in the Guild at that time as Two.

You're thinking of Broker, I think, but yes. Fabulous PC.

What happened to Rythe, Stump, and Milo from the 2011ish Byn days?

And what happened to Kolo? And Torgun?

Stump was played by one of my buddies outside of the game.  He was up there with the best played dwarves I've ever seen, and just a vicious little double dealing bastard.  I'm sure he can comment more about his end, as my own recollection is probably not fully accurate.

I reckon you recollect Torgun's well enough. isFriday seems to think so.

Milo if you're reading this know that I picked up your sword after reversing your disarm and used it for many many years. It ought to be in Kadius with Torgun's kid by now.

I admittedly was a massive noob when I played as Hairdo in the Byn, and some of the things I did with Hairdo I laughed at, while at other times I utterly cringed. I'm afraid I can't get the logs out on this thread due to sensitive stuff, but man were those the noobish days.

Ale six, it's nice to know that someone who plays this game puts that much thought and heart into their characters. And that sometimes, there really is a whole living breathing character with reasons behind certain acts.

I played a friend (?) of Ellandris Borsail, who knew about her kidnapping. It's cool to know there was a whole fleshed out character on the other end of it. Thanks.

It goes deeper than that, in fact, a bit more behind the scenes.

Aon Uaptal, who was kind of ticked that Theron let a pesky mage loose, decided to manipulate her into kidnapping Ellandris.

The entire reason he wanted to do so? He just enjoyed messing with Ellandris for kicks. He thought it would be amusing to have her collared in the Quarter somewhere.

Theron just wanted her dropped into the Silt Sea (easier), but I nixed that. Felt that 1)it would be a crappy death and 2) he felt he needed to have her over for tea since she had rescinded his invitation to her birthday party. Yes, Faithful Lord Aon Uaptal (also known as Lord Templar Snorvellus Tor) had been invited to Ellandris Borsail's eighteenth birthday party. Briefly. I actually had a Tor signet ring, a medallion, and a blue templar's robe, so I had actually considered dressing up in costume and actually going. (Perhaps a...10 percent chance of success, but it would have been so epic).

So that entire plot was born, in part, solely because a character thought it would be 'funny'.

----
Incidentally, loved the templar scene in Tuluk at the time. Certifiably zen-scholar-badasses. Too bad what's-her-name Uaptal messed up her candidacy for Lirathan-ness with her dalliance with Theron. :(

Who were the folks who got roads named after them in Tuluk?

Roads named after people.
Radoon, Medichi, Khann, Ysania, Eldor, Piory, Chakal, Garas, Natascha, Rhydun, Sartakryn, Hekorz.

Which one's were actually players people have played with and who were they?

Mdichi and Khann of course, were legendary merchants of Kadius and Salarr respectively.

Radoon, Ysania, and Eldor were Kadians. Piory and Hekorz I -THINK- were rebels? I have no idea who the others are. Anyone care to chime in?

Garas Lyksae, founder of House Lyksae. Rhydun and Sartakryn were both Kuraci, I believe. Piory and Chakal, not sure. Could be v/NPC templars or maybe even PCs from pre-occupation Tuluk. Or rebels, yeah, that's possible too.

Drazen. Best elf, criminal, trader I have even seen, with an amazing personality.

Drazen was the greatest criminal PC I have ever played with. I am bloody glad you still play. I was Zuun/Threeleg, OOCLY I knew obv. my PC would die in Tuluk but thought I would play it out, and those times were some of the best hanging out with you.

I still grin when I think of the sloppiest murder ever committed by career criminals.

scumbag c-elf + scumbag droof = all levels of win. was a beautiful time and here's to playing like the next step is to the mantis head.

ps: Zuun got clipped owing Drazen coin so all bets are off. pay up or get f**ked. ;) :* <3

pss: what happened to Corporal Hardass? He was later a Sarge in the Legion. Drazen's nemisis in the early days whose hobby was shoving punch daggers into his face during botched hits. Never bothered to remember the PC's name b/c he was just the unbribable "Corporal Hardass."

Aon was such a joy to play around.  I'm glad how that turned out, really.  Bogre, it's a tragedy how all of your characters seem to meet their end.  Whatever happened to (insert character played by Bogre) ..?  Guess.   :D


Incidentally, loved the templar scene in Tuluk at the time. Certifiably zen-scholar-badasses. Too bad what's-her-name Uaptal messed up her candidacy for Lirathan-ness with her dalliance with Theron. :(

On the other hand, I still feel bad about how this turned out.  Less so about my character, and more for Valeska.  There was very little documentation about that sort of thing, and what I thought would be a quirky little mistake ended up costing so much.

Post by: Large Hero on August 26, 2016, 10:26:08 AM
What happened to Rythe, Stump, and Milo from the 2011ish Byn days?

And what happened to Kolo? And Torgun?

Stump was played by one of my buddies outside of the game.  He was up there with the best played dwarves I've ever seen, and just a vicious little double dealing bastard.  I'm sure he can comment more about his end, as my own recollection is probably not fully accurate.


I played Stump, "the burned, scarbound dwarf." His real name was Karkarek. His short backstory: he was born a slave to a minor merchant family. They were traveling outside of Allanak in their cart when the family's child knocked over a lantern with oil, and the wagon burned. He escaped, the family died. He was free. After healing in a cave, he returned to Allanak.

This is when I started play.

Mentally, he never stopped being a slave. His focus was "find the most powerful master who will accept me as their servant." He was afraid of losing his master again, and wanted to serve someone who would be strong enough to stick around. Not having a better idea of how to begin, he joined the Byn. I believe he was recruited by Sgt. Lantry Stetson.

Stump met Sgt. Rythe, and decided that he was strong and smart enough to be a master, for now. (Lantry had a kind of nihilist 'whatever' quality to him. Like he wasn't afraid of dying. That made him a bad candidate, in Stump's eyes. Rythe was a more salt-of-the-earth guy who'd fight to stay alive.)

They Bynned it up for a while. Then, Rythe got into some trouble with Lord Templar Koranth. Rythe fled the city, along with his lovable idiot sidekick Milo, who was amazingly well-roleplayed. Forrest Gump on Zalanthas. The guy was consistently hilarious, without being unrealistic. A total gem. (If Torgun killed this Milo, I am sad about it).

Stump became paranoid that Koranth would be after him too, as Stump was known to be friendly with Rythe. So Stump left the Byn and set out to track down Rythe. Problem is, Rythe had his barrier up constantly those days, and Stump could never pierce it.

Eventually found him in Tuluk. Rythe had lost Milo along the way, or so he'd said. They made plans to start their own mercenary outfit...

But fate intervened. Stump was hunting in the North to make ends meet while waiting for Rythe's mercenary outfit to start up. While out in the wilds one day, he was captured by a Whiran, who said she was going to kill him unless he did something for her (I forget what, but Stump did it. Some task within Tuluk).

He returned to this Whiran, and they got to talking. She seemed reasonable enough. She bragged about killing some important and powerful people. Stump said, "hey. This person is stronger than Rythe. I don't need Rythe anymore." And so he had a new master.

The two of them agreed that Stump should return to Allanak and become a Byn Sergeant again. So, he did that. He put his all into being the best possible Bynner, with a dwarf's single-mindedness, in order to become Sergeant as soon as possible. It happened pretty quickly.

This was the era when Russ, Ryatt, and Stump were the Byn Sergeants. Albie was also a common, beloved fixture.

Stump did the things the Whiran told him to do. They had a special method of communication to avoid being found out, and never were.

Eventually, the Whiran told Stump about her master. This was a certain infamous sorcerer. Stump went to some secret place out in the desert, and they talked. He was doing quite well now, with his focus. A sorcerer! Hard to beat that. His dwarven mind didn't care about anything but having the most powerful master possible, and so he didn't care about the downsides of buddying with a sorc.

Highlights of this time period:

* Hearing that Hawk (that Hawk, the mul) was spotted in the Red Desert. The other Sergeants wanted to go after him, and so a big posse went. We chased after him. Stump was the only one who managed to keep close on Hawk's heels through the storm (Stump had direction sense). Hawk was riding on, but I kept seeing him two or so rooms away. Now, Stump was a dwarf warrior with Exceptional strength who had OHK'd PCs before. He had decent skills and very nice STR/AGI/END. He probably could have chased Hawk until their mounts tired, engaged, and hung in (maybe) long enough for the rest of the Bynners to catch up and join the fight. Maybe. Maybe not.

But Stump knew that Hawk had some nebulous dealings with his new master, and so he stopped the chase.

When he got back to the other Bynners, they were watching some buddy of Hawk's. A human. He was trying to get away from the group, and failing miserably. Stumbling in and out of the storm, lost without direction sense. Clearly not a fighter.

Having spoken with the sorc, Stump knew this guy was a Nilazi. Stump told the other Bynners that they should leave this one alive, in case he had information on Hawk. In reality, he wanted to keep one of the sorc's other minions alive in case the boss wanted him.

This particular Nilazi went on to do some CRAZY shit in the game. Hawk, as we know, had his own tale.

I've posted elsewhere about how fun stuff has resulted when I've decided not to kill people. This is what I think of when I post that.

* We eventually decided the other Byn sergeants needed to go, because Reasons. Ryatt, I believe, offed himself dying in a spider hole? The sorcerer killed Russ.

Rythe still believed Stump was his main man. I think Rythe was a Byn sergeant again, at this time. Or maybe just an influential guy in Allanak? Either way, he was apparently an obstacle. One day, he told Stump he was riding alone to Luir's. Stump told the sorcerer, who captured Rythe and had him in a cave.

Stump rode to the cave. Rythe was stunned. Asked Stump, "why?" In his usual emotionless tone, Stump asked him what he wanted done with his body, figuring he owed him that much. He buried Rythe near Mal Krian, at the sorcerer's camp Stump would soon move to.

* Finding Firalis dying of thirst in the middle of Luir's, a broke bum. Stump thought he could mold him into something useful, and took Firalis back to Allanak. Firalis joined the Byn, and later the Arm. He would later show up to the sorcerer's camp in some weird suicide mission.

Probably my greatest Arm regret is not being online, when Firalis went to the camp.

Because Stump was also at the camp. Stump, who was the one responsible for getting Firalis into the Byn and Arm in the first place. Who gave Firalis his first combat lessons in the Byn.

It would have been an awesome Vader vs. Luke type moment, with the sorcerer looking on...but we weren't online. Ugh!

(https://thesystemsscientist.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/luke-skywalker-dart-vader-darth-sidious.jpg)

The camp grew less populated over time. I started getting busy. Like many things in Arm, it ended with a whimper, not a bang. Stump, at least, completed his focus.

Pretty sure Rythe was a Byn Sergeant at that time, because I remember how enraged Takharion was at losing something like four Byn Sergeants he was dealing to try to attack that camp with just like that.  ;D

Yeah, that makes sense. Stump+Sorc wanted to kill Ryatt/Russ/Rythe so nobody competent would be able to lead the Byn on attacking the camp. ALL ACCORDING TO PLAN

Thanks. Stump was my favorite (and I think best) Arm PC. :)

I'm pretty sure that's how Russ died. I know that the goal was to kill all the Byn sergeants. Stump was never explicitly told "hey I killed Russ," but that's probably what happened.

Speaking of dwarfs, what about that Burned guy from Kadius, or was he a human?
Title: Re: Whatever happened to...?
Post by: Large Hero on August 26, 2016, 10:55:32 AM
Burned was a human named Burned.

A funny Stump story:

Stump was on his way back from Tuluk, having decided to become a Byn Sergeant in Allanak again, on the Whiran's orders. He met some guy in Luir's. My request tool shows me this was "the weathered, thrice-braided man." The guy asked Stump to escort him to Allanak.

They're riding along.

Braided guy: "I, uh, don't really have the coin to pay you" (or something along those lines)

Stump: <notices guy has a wood crossbow> "You'll pay me with that crossbow."

Braided guy: <protests>

Stump, as they continue to ride along: "You have until we reach Allanak to give me that crossbow."

They were attacked by two Gith. Stump was guarding the guy. Stump is fighting the gith, and I guess Braided Guy thinks this is his big chance. He attacks Stump.

Problem is, as aforementioned, Stump was a dwarf ex-Byn sergeant with exceptional strength who'd just gotten done with an RL month+ of hunting in the grasslands while looking for Rythe.

Stump disengaged from the Gith, one-hit the guy to death, then drove off the gith. Shrugged, continued on to Allanak, with crossbow.

Pretty sure Rythe was a Byn Sergeant at that time, because I remember how enraged Takharion was at losing something like four Byn Sergeants he was dealing to try to attack that camp with just like that.  ;D

Yeah, that makes sense. Stump+Sorc wanted to kill Ryatt/Russ/Rythe so nobody competent would be able to lead the Byn on attacking the camp. ALL ACCORDING TO PLAN

I played said sorcerer!

Russ was to secure Hawk's loyalty.
Rythe was to ensure Stump's.
Ryatt died on his own.

All of them together died to confound and enrage Takharion, and also to screw up his plans to attack the camp.

Torgun was always a little insulted by that, but an AoD officer really isn't that important in the scheme of things. Killing Byn's the smarter play.

Stump was definitely one of the better played stumps I've met. I particularly enjoyed that spider ambush we had on the Red Retreat's balcony. He was a good character to work with and talk to.

Hey. What happened to Berk? He was this guy in Byn who was intensely anti Tuluk. My Tuluki character and Berk were pretty fun rivals. He was this very rude and coarse fellow. A true Bully of the Byn :).


I actually got a negative note (I'm still proud of it) on that character.


In reviewing the logs we noticed that you (as Avell) have been giving the Giant's Fist host the name 'BerklovesTuluk' as your name.  Please refrain from doing this as it is silly and breaks immersion.  It would be the same as giving names like 'SeymourButts'.  This has been noted on your account, but no other change has taken place.

Beldyn.  A couple of female bards, don't recall the names, sat around the Sanc and told folks the Beldyn was the father of another gal's child.  Beldyn was not the father and got angry.  In his most usual style he threatened to punch the two bards that were telling lies about him.  The Bards complained to the Circle and Beldyn was forced (ordered by Lord Raleris) to apologize  to the women for threatening them. (I never knew the Circle had that mush power around the Ivory) He did as ordered.  Beldyn was humiliated and demoralized by having to apologize for threatening two folks that were lying about him.  He decided from that day forward he would take no more orders from Lord Raleris.  He went to Lord Raleris, who he had served for about 10 IC years and asked to retire from the House Winrothol.  He told the Lord why as well.  Lord Raleris would not let him retire because he had swore a life oath.  Beldyn asked the Lord what would happen if he just left.  The Lord said he would be branded as a deserter.   As Beldyn would never desert and he would never take orders from the Lord again, he decided that death was his only option.  He dropped his weapons and allowed Lord Raleris to slit his throat.  On his knees and bleeding out, Beldyn used his last strength to salute Lord Raleris.  The end.  That's the way , my character, Beldyn ended.  He was a fun character.

There were other pieces also happening, as I recall.

At a public event where Warreners were getting feisty and uppity, gathering in a crowd that threatened to become a mob, Beldyn made the first attack against the Warren's speaker. Sherris joined in to assist her comrade, and together they killed the citizen in question. Sherris was plagued forever after by PTSD and guilt over killing a citizen who had done nothing. Raleris was furious at the whole situation. He also assumed that Dragean had set things up with the riot somehow, but never proved it. The Faithful were not very happy with Winrothol.

As to Beldyn being teased, it was Youko Elkinhym (full ranked Circle Bard, one step under a Masterbard) and Fanny (independent hunter and Youko's mate) who were involved. Beldyn made some comment to Fanny that he never kissed people he liked, he only poked whores. Youko made a comment about how she thought he had been mated to Sherris and fathered her child... Things got crazy from there. Fanny felt bad about the whole incident exploding the way it did, as it was never intended to become a public or great issue. Youko was just furious at being threatened and got the Circle involved.

At that point, Raleris had a somewhat rough history with the Circle, including believing that they had fixed the bardic auditions so that Sherris would fail (on Elrum's word, who got it from a Rusarla Masterbard). He was so enraged that he made a comment about wanting to kill a Masterbard (which Elrum promptly reported to the Circle).

Tuluk was a pretty busy place. There was always something happening somewhere that was affecting public events, but any given person only saw a fraction of it.

Post by: Cutthroat on August 27, 2016, 12:18:58 PM

Beldyn DILL, haha jeez. Raleris actually got himself close to being charged with treason by the Lirathan Order for his approach to and handling of the Ajinn museum mess (and a couple of subsequent episodes). Safe to say he wasn't too popular with the Lirathans, and probably the Circle, around 2012-2013.

A good day to catch up on posts...

I'll fill in on three PC's of mine mentioned here:

1)  Brethel - I had to actually look back but he was stored.  Playing Brethel was a lot of fun but I had to step back at times.  Rokov and him were a hoot to play, we'd have contests on how many Aides we could have sex with at Allanak parties.  I think in the end he was getting old (easily the longest Arm char I ever played) and I was bored with the Merchant life at the time.  He did move Kurac out of Allanka though I don't remember the slave collar, but it might have happened after Rokov was made a noble in Tuluk and that one Templar was really pissed off at Rokov.  This was quite a few years ago.

2) Russ - Was great to hear the story on Stump, Large Hero.  He was a character that Russ wanted to trust, but never really did.  Russ was as dedicated to the Byn as I think I've ever had a character.  I still remember chasing Hawk...we had him but Stump seemed hesitant to jump in and Albie just didn't react fast enough.  Russ was being pressured to capture Hawk for Borsail.  He first tried to trick him but when the gig was up on that, that's when we chased him.  And looking back, Russ kind of figured that the other guy was Nilazi.  And yes, Russ was plucked out just outside of Allanka returning from some Byn thing, left way above the sinkhole to fall to his near death at the foot of some crazy hooded figure who was laughing.  Then Hawk finished him off, poor Russ couldn't even move and plead for his life.  He was a great character.  You're all bastards!

3) Dealer - There were a number of dealers but I did play one with the Guild at the time of Broker, was the one who found him, I think.  Dead from a Drovian.  This Dealer would sit in the Gaj and read future for people.  He was pretty good at it.  He was also a spy master and a Psionicist.  He was quite strong by the end and then I (the player) messed him up and accidentally wayed a Arm Soldier while his mind was cloaked...classic screw up.  This was also at the time the Beast or whatever was killing in the rinth and the Guild was having problems with it.  So Dealer made it look like the Beast had killed him and cloaked with his mind and walked right out of Allanak, knowing his time there was over.  But he vowed to keep tabs on the Guild and help where he could.   One of the imms was even helping him out with that, having one of the Guild Leaders think out her thoughts for him, was great.  Then he walked into a raptor and died.  Crap...if he could have set himself up somewhere, it would have been classic.  Stupid little typing errors can make such a big problem.

Does anyone remember this family in Allanak. There was the Mother, The elder Son, and the Younger Daughter. I only remember that daughter was called "Equi".  I dont recall the other names. I totally loved that family. Very very very well roleplayed out. I loved the Mother, who rped out being afraid very well. And the elder son's stubborness, and the younger daughter intelligence/malleability.

I was the dreadlocked, haggard elf (Ripples/Singer/Whatever else) who sort of ... inserted himself into the life of that family. Conspiring with Solych the Blue to scare them, then leveraging their safety. He had hopes to corrupt and recruit Equi to be his operative. But ended up storing later on.

What happened with that family in the end? Did they all die out? Store? I recall the elder son died to something stupid.  

There werent movers and shakers, but very very realistic roleplay. I enjoyed watching them most thoroughly.

I expected Nuway to become a very epic character and he was so close, but he was killed by some tuluki sympathizers. Even he himself was beginning to love Tuluk, his original home. He had left Coco and Juanna at home coincidentally before this incident. He traveled on foot a great bit - and /always/ had to re-tame that sunback after resets.
Ranger / Master crafter who was born to tuluki patriots that didn't like the way things were done. Born to the city, but without tattooes. He escaped the city and lived in the grey forest successfully, bio wise and playing him. He gathered bugs 'n animals and things to speak to as friends. I started playing him with the story of a rantarri that destroyed his tree-house home. ... So, you all know, I didn't realize how similar that was to tarzan until after saying it.
So he ventured into the city of tuluk once more, afraid but prepared for the worst. ... he learned a great many things just by watching and observing, but he didn't dare speak - so he traveled the road and ended up in luir's where things made a little more sense.
He made some friends and learned even more about civilization, very discreetly. (this was before the tent apartments in luir's unfortunately) He ventured forth in search of a safe home again, but he couldn't stay in the outpost. He traveled through the canyons and mountains and such and found a suitable location. - he soon discovered and befriended the sunback Coco. He began training and teaching him the things that he learned while setting up camp in this new location.
Sooner or later he wanted to see more of this world he had missed out on and traveled the expansive desert to allanak. He didn't like allanak at all, but spent a good bit of time there in case he was missing the charm everyone else was enjoying.
He did happen to find a lot more work there, though. And he figured now that he was a part of this world he might as well fully embrace it.

Like with all my completely mundane characters... Some /really/ epic thing happened to him that I don't think I should mention just yet. -- but he definitely told people about it.

So much solo roleplay, ya'll... with bugs and lizards and birds...
I'm so glad people enjoyed being around him as much as I did sharing him. Being an unknowledgable tribal is difficult. -- sooner or later /I/ was getting annoyed with how much he didn't know.

if you ever meet a character that /actually/ sleeps outside on purpose. ... it's probably me. I might as well throw it out there.

Also, same character...what ever happened to Mister Steak, I think was your name? I recall my Byn unit at the time actually broke into your apartment, stole your things, shit on your rug, and left a single coin in the shit. I laughed so hard. I remember you caught me once stealing your worm hide that the Byn, my own unit, had just brought to you and sold you. You left it in that apartment and I went to steal it so you would hire us again to get you some more....and you actually walked up while I was in the process of doing it (needless to say you didn't hire us to go get you more)! LMFAO I liked Mister Steak.

Mister Steak is not allowed to talk about Mister Steak yet as Mr Steak's year is not yet up.

Eriit. Both her sons died. Her daughter was really abusive to her. She ended up cutting ties with the daughter. She went on to work for Borsail as an aide. I think her entire existence centered on work at that point.
She was sapped in the bazaar and carried off to the empty kurac pavilion and woke with no pants. She lived her entire life afraid to go to the bazaar.

Purloiner/Voice wound up leaving UnderTuluk in a huff, living in the Mantis Valley for a good long while, finally finding some peace once he threatened to kill off Tuluki nobles if people didn't leave him alone, and eventually getting stored because Borsail reopened for play and I desperately wanted to play a Borsail noble.

Havel was an angry old man that would sit in the bar and pretend to not be magick and yell at everyone and joke. He definitely took advantage of his age.
He ended up getting noticed, though, and gemmed.

Whatever happened to calling it the Bard's Barrel?

The Bard's Barrel was destroyed in the gith invasion of Allanak in 2007. Everyone inside was killed (including the bard) and the interior was totally wrecked. Afterward, the tavern was rebuilt with the patronage of a Red Robed templar, Great Lord Samos Rennik, and renamed Red's Retreat. Thus, it's not the Bard's Barrel anymore due to IC outcomes that were player-driven; the players had a choice to defend the Barrel or other areas of the city, the Barrel was deemed of lesser importance and so it suffered the consequences.

Trader's Inn was burned down due to player-initiated mob action. A single PC started a riot/mob/arson of the tavern, and the other PCs who were present didn't do enough to prevent the blaze from spreading, so it burned down. Later, staff built the dome there in order to provide a more central base of operations for PC templars.

When my PC Templar Lyvren oversaw part of the attempt to save the Trader's Inn, a shadow she called over the area, from the Highlord, morphed into a dragon shape briefly and stayed there forever. I think it's currently mentioned in the desc for the Temple exterior as the obsidian sucking away all the heat.

Sarge Huss was actually doing pretty good until the mob took weapons from the fallen NPC bodyguards.  Then they almost killed him, but he escaped.  Right at the same time, the rest of the unit arrived, but the Inn was already hopelessly ablaze.

Funny thing is people were outside watching it burn down but thought Huss was still trapped inside!  He'd crawled away on a busted leg and started getting way messages like "Jump out the window!" and "Sarge, nooooo!!!"

I remember Sarge Niall was a tuluki, and the southern Templars had to save him from a pair of silt worms or silt horrors with a couple of fireballs.

Well, save -us-. But they were intent on eating him first.

They also did not let the opportunity to rub it in go to waste, although they didn't milk it for all it was worth.

They were dujaats. Another glorious excursion under the command of "Lord Templar Forgets-He-Can-See-In-The-Dark" (Torgun's proposed yajah name/theory behind a certain pattern of mishaps).

I do remember having a badass fight with Niall against a silt horror on the way back from that RPT; he got wrapped up there too.

We tried to save Pasheen even though she was a coked-out crazy Stormer, but were stymied by the "only one body can fit in here" code. Couldn't throw her to safety without also blocking off the tunnel.

Those two dujaats...Niall was so new, I suddenly forgot his name in the shock of something unseen draining his HP at an astonishing rate.  All I could remember was my last PC's name, I drew a complete blank....so I was just yelling "Help me" in the dark and hoping someone recognized his accent lol.  Like you could notice that in the scroll of combat in a large party.  He was only saved because one of the dujaats missed a charge and it echoed his ldesc to the room.  Someone rescued him then...one of the half-giants.

I remember the silt horror but I don't remember getting hosed up by it.  Probably did.  Sponsored roles...he sucked at fighting for awhile.  That was an exciting RPT!  I was sorry that Pearl got killed. 

The templars got him good later.  Lord Templar Kitrix burned a cross into his forehead over some fabricated charge in a terrific scene.  I got a lot of RP over that for the rest of Niall's life.

2) Russ - Was great to hear the story on Stump, Large Hero.  He was a character that Russ wanted to trust, but never really did.  Russ was as dedicated to the Byn as I think I've ever had a character.  I still remember chasing Hawk...we had him but Stump seemed hesitant to jump in and Albie just didn't react fast enough.  Russ was being pressured to capture Hawk for Borsail.  He first tried to trick him but when the gig was up on that, that's when we chased him.  And looking back, Russ kind of figured that the other guy was Nilazi.  And yes, Russ was plucked out just outside of Allanka returning from some Byn thing, left way above the sinkhole to fall to his near death at the foot of some crazy hooded figure who was laughing.  Then Hawk finished him off, poor Russ couldn't even move and plead for his life.  He was a great character.  You're all bastards!

3) Dealer - There were a number of dealers but I did play one with the Guild at the time of Broker, was the one who found him, I think.  Dead from a Drovian.  This Dealer would sit in the Gaj and read future for people.  He was pretty good at it.  He was also a spy master and a Psionicist.  He was quite strong by the end and then I (the player) messed him up and accidentally wayed a Arm Soldier while his mind was cloaked...classic screw up.  This was also at the time the Beast or whatever was killing in the rinth and the Guild was having problems with it.  So Dealer made it look like the Beast had killed him and cloaked with his mind and walked right out of Allanak, knowing his time there was over.  But he vowed to keep tabs on the Guild and help where he could.   One of the imms was even helping him out with that, having one of the Guild Leaders think out her thoughts for him, was great.  Then he walked into a raptor and died.  Crap...if he could have set himself up somewhere, it would have been classic.  Stupid little typing errors can make such a big problem.

The End: No Redemption

It was dawn on Detal, the 121st day of the Descending Sun
In the Year of Jihae's Defiance, year 12 of the 22nd Age
 
Figuring that putting Hasan down was the only way to redeem himself for his
botched assassination attempt on Kitrix Borsail, Takharion spent the good-
will capital that he had been accumulating with Hasan through Corra to lure
him in close enough to strike.  Takharion hoped that neither was aware of his
failed attempt on Kitrix.  It was clear that Corra did not--she believed that
the meeting was being arranged to discuss Takharion acquiring assistance for
causing Hasan's demise.
 
As crazy as Ariannah's death had been driving him, Takharion was no
sorcerer's tool, and never would have used an upstart to bring about the
death of another templar.  At least, he wasn't that far gone yet...

Unfortunately, Takharion's strike went directly into the sorcerer's
bodyguard, and Takharion's life was snuffed out shortly thereafter.  His last
emotion was irritation, which was fitting.

I played Stump. It's pretty hard to believe you knew that Stump was a double agent, given the insane, OCD methods he used to avoid detection.

If supernatural means were used to discover he'd occasionally travel alone to weird places in the middle of the desert, that'd be fine. But you'd know, then; it wouldn't be a suspicion.

Everyone knew Shaze was not a normal human, though. It was obvious from the way he acted.

Seriously. Swear to god. Shaze was completely mundane. I think Shaze dissapeared from Takharion's service two rl days after his complete manifestation. Everything else before that was done by mundane means. And great vast reason for me taking so damn long to manifest, was Takharion. I enjoyed playing with him so much, that I postponed manifestation for as long as possible. Only true reason I did manifest as Shaze, was because I had a RL project coming up that took me from the game for probably over a rl year. So I would've been gone, one way, or other.  That whole "we all knew Shaze wasnt mundane" kind of shows where assumptions get people.

One of the best aspects of playing him was how much he vehemently hated magic and the gemmed, but ended up the "gemmed templar" anyway (as you can see in the posted bios). The interactions with  Corse/Corra/Moraz were some of my favorites. He thought of the gemmed as dangerous weapons, not people, and never really thought they would have their own thoughts and feelings.

I specifically remember when Corra did or said something overly familiar, contradicted him or something, and he looked across the table at her and said that if she ever did it again, he would kill her. And meant it. I loved oppressing the shit out of you guys and you all seemed to eat it up. How... Armageddon.

I remembering being told to execute Corra by Lyvren (I think before we even got the Gem on her) and then having it immediately countermanded. I think that was Corra, anyway. Was she the whiran who poisoned herself and then collapsed outside the Merchant Gate?

Torgun only ever bothered to talk to the Whirans when he needed someone brought to him quickly, which sadly never worked out.
Title: Re: Whatever happened to...?
Post by: Delirium on September 13, 2016, 02:46:30 PM
That was most likely Corse. He was a drovian. I remember a story about him collapsing outside the merchant's gates after fighting off an enemy.

Which reminds me... did Corse really just accidentally fall into the pit or was it FOUL PLAY? Curious minds have wanted to know ever since!

Edit: there was no "pre gem" for Corra. She manifested when she was 8 years old and started play at 13. She was mentally unstable in a lot of ways from manifesting so young, sheltered and naive in some ways and jaded and broken in others. She adjusted more as she got older, but she always remained unhinged in subtle ways.

I think she was nearing 30 when she died. Though the "real" Corra could be argued to have died years prior.
Title: Re: Whatever happened to...?
Post by: BadSkeelz on September 13, 2016, 03:43:11 PM
Was it Tuu, then? I know it was a female Whiran who may or may not have been Gemmed. Always been Corra in my mind.

I always assumed Corse's death was accidental (especially in retrospect, given how lethal that particular hole proved to be). Believing that certainly kept Torgun feeling guilty, since it was his idea for Corse to scout around there in the first place.

Whatever happened to the krathi Kaya? I remember her manifesting as a Trooper and taking custody of her from the Sarges, and then spending like 30 minutes trying to find a damn NPC Templar to Gem her. I didn't interact with her much but thought she was badass.

I was Kaga, an unmanifested ruk working for House Dasari, and Siko, an unmanifested ruk working for House Kadius in Tuluk. Never manifested, well, Kaga did, but she ran away immediately. Does anyone remember that?

I remember Corra! Sweet times.

I was Dayna, a byn runner who manisted on a spider-killing contract. We were looking for the three spider holes and killing any we found. She was a viv/weaponscrafter. A dwarven woman befriended her mother when she was pregnant, stole the baby when it was born, and killed the mother. She then raised the child, Dayna, to assist her in the killing of 1000 undesirables. She was halfway through when she was caught and Dayna slipped by. Then there was a cool bit I can't say anything about, and then she manifested. About a month went by, and she told a single friend about her history. The number of times I got wayed then was hilarious. Stored out of boredom. Was back when I didn't -quite- know how to play a witch (was casual friends with a normal) but I got kudos twice for her anyway.

I remember Dayna, she was, psychologically, a monster, but my undesirable cared about her anyway (he was also sort of a monster, in a different sense) and never spoke of her secret purpose. I was too newb to understand my Tuluki breed PROBABLY should not be making friends with gemmers, but his backstory was ugly enough to allow for it, as his cultural education involved being locked in a closet his whole life and beaten with a wooden axe when his caretaker would get sauced, until he managed to escape and ran away from home. Truth be told OOCly I'd guild sniffed her and had a feeling she was a mage, but ICly I knew my PC would know nothing of the sort so went with it until the manifestation.

All the gemmers that PC knew, a total of two, he met in the T'zai Byn. Also, that particular manifestation was a pretty epic oh shit moment.

Corra was a wind witch. I'm not really sure what she did or how she died, she was a gemmed.

I LOVED your breed dude. He did seem pretty messed up. When I was Dayna, I watched your death in the arena. It was pretty sad and I think I stood up for a moment when you bit it.

Whatever happened to that gaggle of Wind Gickers who were messing w. the SLK for like 2 months in 2011? There were 3 (?) Us and the Arabet got 2 (least I think 1 was a wind witch...). It was super fun. No gank summons. Just good RP.

I figured it was. I was devastated, considering her fight for a good life after she had left a particular group of people. HOWEVER! Rathustra did something very, very special to give me some closure.

My char had a child with her in her sling who would've suffered the same fate as her mother had he not sent me a log where the child survived, by hanging in the papoose on the edge of a rock. Where he emoted a grebber finding the child and taking her with him. I sometimes still hope seeing this NPC and VNPC in game as a PC :P

Can i post it here? I'd love to.  It's not a long scene. Screw it, I'll just do it anyway.

Quote
Above a Colossal Cavern [U, D]

 

A few shards of sandstone clatter into the yawning abyss below as the scarified, hard-featured man shimmies between handholds.

 

The scarified, hard-featured man thinks:

“Just... a lil' closer...”

 

Straining, the scarified, hard-featured man reaches with a calloused hand for a tattered papoose precariously dangling from a projection of stone.

 

There's a grinding of stone as a lump of sandstone cracks and crumbles from beneath the scarified, hard-featured man.

 

The scarified, hard-featured man feels his heart stop.

 

Gritting his teeth, the scarified, hard-featured man hops, his ragged sandcloth gear flapping in the wind.

 

Hitting the rock-face hard, the scarified, hard-featured man finds purchase, cutting his hands on a jagged hand-hold.

 

The scarified, hard-featured man thinks:

“Krath...”

 

A small noise from the papoose attracts the scarified, hard-featured man's attention and his expression shifts from pain to wonderment.

 

Reaching out as far as he can, the scarified, hard-featured man takes a tattered papoose, quickly bundling it against himself and the wall.

 

The scarified, hard-featured man looks inside a tattered papoose, his eyes widening noticably.

 

The scarified, hard-featured man thinks:

“I don't fuckin' believe it...”

 

Shhing the papoose, the scarified, hard-featured man begins to climb towards a nearby platform and his waiting scavenging gear.

 

Quickly scooping it from the papoose, the scarified, hard-featured man soaks a bit of sandcloth in water and offers it to the sunburnt child, which suckles greedily.

 

Showing surprising tenderness, the scarified, hard-featured man brushes back the child's hair and squints up towards the gash of light overhead.

 

The scarified, hard-featured man mutely watches the child suck the sandcloth dry, his windswept visage indecisive.

 

The scarified, hard-featured man sighs and offers the child a wry, world-weary smile, slipping it back into the papoose, which he slips over his shoulder before taking to the wall, climbing toward the light...

 

Good luck with your next character.

 

Rathustra

This has been an issue for me in the past, because while my PC wants to get things done, I'm sometimes in clans where I don't have anyone capable or interested in helping out and so I end up being stuck. When someone IS both of those things, I can generate a bunch of work and fun and all sorts of things.


On the main topic: Does anyone remember Corporal Kelsin, in the Tuluki Legions, circa like 2004? Rapist, abuse of power, real close with Elithan (supposedly) so he always got what he wanted? He was my first "I fucking hate you" PC and he did it so well.

There were a lot of characters I've had who've met some of the more famous ones mentioned here, and if it's appropriate, I'd like to mention on a half-giant named Albie and one of my characters in the Byn who met him.
Title: Re: Whatever happened to...?
Post by: Refugee on September 16, 2016, 06:05:20 PM
Albie was awesome.  He was the heart and soul of the Byn in his time.

I remember a conversation with another sergeant, before a spider nest raid that we felt was very likely to kill us all. And we decided that if anyone survived, it had to be Albie, because he was the heart of the Byn and if he was there, whoever came after us as sergeants would be OK.

I remember playing this Tribal whose tribe have suffered a massive calamity specifically due to Allanak, it's forces, and it's sorcerer-king. By all accounts, that tribal hated "everything" Allanak, but had to infiltrate Allanaki society to provide his own tribe some heads up.

So I'm sitting in the tavern, hating on all Allanaki in my thinks and I watch this scene of Albie and some other HG braiding each other's hair.

And I was just ... I mean ... how the fuck do you maintain hatred when you see "that" scene? It was soooo beautiful.

Lord Mallor?

I designed a funereal slab for him with marble and rubies. Had VNPC slaves building it in the Tor Academy main hall on the first floor - it was intended to be a crematorium. I submitted it, it was a Master Craft. Shortly after that, my PC went insane and I stored. I don't think the staff ever actually implemented the slab, which is a real shame. Also not the first time I submitted master crafts that never got implemented because my character died/stored.

Personally my Tor dude was all down for getting cremated, but then he outlived Mallor and a few other people.

I have a good memory of Koranth.  I played Hurlen-da Kurac, and you were my first interaction with a Templar.  Hurlen was driven to brew his own top coin whiskey, but all I had available to sell Koranth was Tarkons swill.  I remember thinking, as I handed over the cask, "Man, I'm gonna die over some swill."  When you threw the glass I laughed out loud.

There was supposed to be a designated cremation area, that's what I'm saying. Mallor commissioned my character to make it. I designed it, and it was in the process of being build ICly (my Kadian Merchant PC brought in a bunch of onyx stones and I dropped them with ldescs to indicate slaves were building them into a thing). I had acquired the rubies necessary to do the inlay of crimson scorpions along the edges of the slab, I wrote up the mdesc, sdesc, approximate weight (flagged as immobile), value, everything. I submitted it as a mastercraft, and had received feedback. And then nothing for awhile, a few RL weeks later stuff happened and I stored. The item was never implemented even though virtually it was being worked on.

So that was the dude with the metal weapon?  I mastercrafted that with some NPC help.  Was pretty neat.  I feel like it was made for a woman Tor, though... Eh.

I played Koranth Tor, thanks for having a fond memory of him! I think he executed a few Nilazi so feel bad to admit that I'm not sure which you are speaking of. I know there was one that Koranth burned to death, that was a pretty neat scene.

Caved my PCs chest in with a hammer, while inside one of the jail cells, if that helps.  If you had been a little less careful, I might have escaped via a secret plan.  It made the scene very stressful, as I thought I had a chance the whole time.  Good times.

I operated that Nilazi almost exclusively in the city states.  I'm surprised it took as long as it did to get found.

I definitely had a rukkian tagalong/lackey/co-rogue mage.  He wasn't my PC's boyfriend, but if that's what everyone thought, that'd be sort of hilarious.

The PC had every intention to start a cult, and had initially picked that Rukkian to head it.  But, he was getting paranoid that the rukkian couldn't be trusted, and was strongly considering killing him.  He had already "accidentally" gotten his friend killed.  It was while considering this that my PC got caught.  He suspected that Rukkian turned him in, until the end.

What happened to "The Devourer?"

Not sure. You mean the Nilazi elf? He was mentioned a few times when I played an Akei in '07-'08 but then I never heard about him again. Stare of Many Faces met with him a few times, but Stare's player doesn't play Arm anymore, afaik.

Yeah, the rukkian knew.  At least, he knew my PC was something wierd.  Dunno if he had a strong idea of what Nilazi was.

If he was upset, I guess I/my PC did a better job being a potential cult leader than I or my PC thought.

I stored him after a number of things I wanted to do fizzled out.  I told staff he was retiring to Red Storm, so I'd bet that's where he is.  He was enormously wealthy when I threw in the towel, so I can only imagine he'd either been mugged for his many ruby rings, or he just lived the last 25 years in luxury.

Asil was a Tuluki citizen and once employed by the Order of Jihae. As such he was held to a higher standard than most employees of House Kurac by Tuluk officials. He was tasked to assist the Order of Lirathu with some diplomacy matters but repeatedly failed to deliver. Additionally, he badmouthed the Order of Lirathu to Lyvren the Blue, and associated with magickers in his capacity as a Kuraci. Not a healthy thing to do when you're a Tuluki.

Eventually, Qoriya decided Asil had gone from vaguely useful to useless, and tasked a shadow artist with killing him. The hit was planned to take place the same evening as another Lirathan PC disappeared Asil in the Heart due to misunderstanding the situation, or being over-enthusiastic. I don't remember those details now, five years later. Raleris was involved in the stupidly thin cover up involving kryl. Raleris took quite a bit of blame for that and even got a hate-painting sent to him by Kurac. Qoriya and Advisor (?) Ailin-di Kurac eventually settled the matter to return relations to neutral again.

the something, snaggly-toothed man was the first memorable pc I ever interacted with, in Tuluk. God, I wish Tuluk weren't closed.

This guy seemed to get the drift that I was relatively new. He occasionally taught me without being obvious about it. He was a subsistence clay grebber who was on the lookout for Kadian hunter openings and eventually snagged one. He ate erdlu stew at the Kadian bar, while I lived on milk. He was so happy to snag the position. He had a lot of energy. He didn't tell me which position he had gotten but it was probably hunter, most of them are. I wonder whether he died to animals, or died to the flood. I died to the flood; well, specifically, to leaving tuluk in the middle of the flood. I wonder if anyone remembers my stupid breed.

He had a gwoshi for awhile. Chosen Lord Raleris conspired with the Muarki to have that gwoshi stolen... Later on Raleris told the story as how he saved Dragean's life, because those Muarki wanted to have Dragean killed. Simultaneously bragging, of course, that it was stolen. I think that's why there was always an NPC with Dragean's mount after that.

They had an impressive level of hate. Amusingly, most of the things Raleris accomplish he'd compare to Dragean ("unlike SOME people, who did [horrible view of the thing here]"), while Dragean would do the same thing ("[large words that mean "I did this stuff"] and [large words to vaguely reference something embarrassing to Raleris/Winrothol]").

I'm not sure I've seen any other rivalry that compared to that one.

I really liked the last male noble of Dasari. He was my boss, I grebbed stuff for him, I was an unmanifested ruk called Kaga. I was actually in on secret things for once in my Arm career. I suppose my lack of apparent skills were obvious in the days when you could sniff out a main guild witch, but I think few enough people did that (I love playing unmanifested people in Tuluk) that they didn't really suspect me of being more than some human girl who disliked hunting and picked the ranger guild.

I've played Shaze. Let's just say that his service got him so involved in things magickal, that bad things were simply bound to happen. One way, or other. Shaze was during a very rare period in my life where I actually had 'time' to play. It was my second Aide character in my entire gameplay. (...) I thoroughly enjoyed playing with Takharion. So much, that I havent manifested as a Nilazi for many rl months, pretty much the entirety of his service to Takharion. Only when my IRL respite was ending and I knew I will become very very scarce and too rare to be an affective aide, I've actually allowed myself to manifest and well ... the rest I'll keep unknown.

OMG, I loved Shaze. My offpeakness prevents me from getting actively involved in any of the really big plots, so my fondest memories are of relatively mundane but no less fabulous scenes with fabulously played PCs. I played Djabe, the AoD corporal who somehow never got the opportunity for her amazing combat skills to shine, and was so sad when Shaze died. Djabe even had a tiny little crush on him.  :-* Losing both Shaze and Corse as regular people to just hang out and socialize with was depressing. If Djabe had found out Shaze was a Nilazi, she would have gone nuts. Haha.

Whatever happened to Dekken, the Borsail aide, and Kolo the other Borsail aide? They were my psionicist's best friends. We had some of the BEST scenes. Damn. I should submit logs.

But anyway, Lucky and Dekken. Oh my God. I sent the guy a kudos with a STANDING OVATION. I have never ever in 12 years sent anyone a kudos with a standing ovation where I actually got up from my chair as I typed the last words. It was his first character.  :o

EDIT:

Kolo is still too recent, my friend! She got old as dirt.

This sounds like Basmir, Lifesworn to Kadius.  I played one of (if not) his first lovers.  He was a delight that used my young girl unmercifully to kill his enemies (resulting in her death, of course).  Loved him.

I am pretty sure you are thinking of Seulif? He was like this ancient Tuluki PC who worked for Kadius and then also Salarr for a bit? He was very well played. He was like the fuzzy-headed or escru-headed man or something? Is that the dude? If I recall correctly, he was found dead on the streets of Allanak and Kadius accused Salarr of orchestrating his murder. Midge of Salarr was accused of hiring someone to kill him or having her hunters kill him or something, but she loved that dude so no way jose. He quit Salarr but she let him go on good terms and they remained friends right up until he was found dead, so it really bummed her out that someone apparently convinced Sharlo she murdered him!

I am not sure how he actually died apart from Salarr definitely didn't do it! Also I'm unsure if Kadius actually believed Salarr did it or if someone was just trying to pressure Salarr through Kadius with a backroom alliance because boy oh boy did Salarr have a lot of enemies at the time.

Man Allanaki politics were great at that point in time. I have only ever played one character that even brushed that level of politicking and alliance making/breaking and marriage-arranging and marriage-unarranging and betraying. It's really exhausting and takes a huge time commitment but merchant politics in Arm can be top dang notch.

And is this Cammul Tenneshi the same one who wrote that play called, "Dog and Man" or something like that?

Yes, Cammul Tenneshi wrote Man and Dog back in 2005 I think, played by Galdun. I played Jochebed, his smile-scarred butler bard. We had much fun -- Tuluk's golden years were certainly that time, 2005-2006. Jochebed thought he was the coolest kid on the block, but that award clearly goes to Holten and Methyas, in hindsight. He got to write songs from the front, and even fought in the war, though he wimped out on all of the big offensives. Cammul himself was there at the front, and took Soldier's accounts and wrote some great material that's still around (in Tuluk).

Funny fact about Man and Dog -- Jochebed and Mae Konviwedu had been practicing for about a RL month for the play, and it wasn't an easy one to pull off. A lot of timing, waiting, and getting the pace right both IG and OOC so it wasn't a boring thing but an exciting thing.

So, the day of the play, literally the IC day, Mae was out like...Hunting? And got killed outside of Tuluk.

Step in...Zeiri! A soldier from the Copper War who was an understudy at Cammul's request. He got his spot in the limelight...A no rehearsal performance of Man and Dog! He did wonderfully, and the play was a hit when it was first put on. There were attempts to rekindle the play later on, but i'm unsure if it ever actually happened, as Tuluk's closing was announced just around the time of the performance.

We have logs of him and the play somewhere?

Speaking of which, what happened to that player/character who referenced that play in the last bardic contest in Tuluk before the city closed for play?  I believe it was Jargon.

This is going waaaaay back but whatever happened to Two-Noose Tanoske? (spelled?) He was this Kadius dude with a ponytail back in like, uh, 2005-6? Maybe? I don't have any logs from back then? I couldn't sleep last night and he popped into my mind and I was like damn that dude was fun.

I don't remember that, but you can probably help me remember who that Kadian was...Silif? Does that sound right?
We all know the OG Fat Man (Cammul Tenneshi) was the real boss.

What ever happened to that Kadian Assassin...Seif? Sulif?

I am pretty sure you are thinking of Seulif? He was like this ancient Tuluki PC who worked for Kadius and then also Salarr for a bit? He was very well played. He was like the fuzzy-headed or escru-headed man or something? Is that the dude? If I recall correctly, he was found dead on the streets of Allanak and Kadius accused Salarr of orchestrating his murder. Midge of Salarr was accused of hiring someone to kill him or having her hunters kill him or something, but she loved that dude so no way jose. He quit Salarr but she let him go on good terms and they remained friends right up until he was found dead, so it really bummed her out that someone apparently convinced Sharlo she murdered him!

I am not sure how he actually died apart from Salarr definitely didn't do it! Also I'm unsure if Kadius actually believed Salarr did it or if someone was just trying to pressure Salarr through Kadius with a backroom alliance because boy oh boy did Salarr have a lot of enemies at the time.

Man Allanaki politics were great at that point in time. I have only ever played one character that even brushed that level of politicking and alliance making/breaking and marriage-arranging and marriage-unarranging and betraying. It's really exhausting and takes a huge time commitment but merchant politics in Arm can be top dang notch.

Yes, I agree. When I was playing Githclit, I was surprised at the level of scheming going on. It was a great time in Nak Politics for the GMH, for sure.

Alas, they are on a computer long dead. Cammul's fat presence must only live on in memory. But he predated Dragean by quite a few years, and somehow they happened to do the same things (ride around on Ratlons, eat copious amounts of food in public). Go figure (I always thought he was a copycat).

Cammul later resurfaced (unstored) and returned an emaciated zealot, but not for the Sun King, but Skellebaine. He tried dosing Nobles a few times, and I think was either killed for it by the Templarate or stored again.

I remember Silif. I remember wondering how long it would be until he snapped and ditched her.

Leisera was pretty unhinged by then. Silif was right about her (though evidently I didn't portray it as well as I hoped; she was supposed to be paranoid AF, not a control freak - fine line, I guess). All her plotting and scheming over the last several years of gameplay had turned around to massively bite her in the ass and she was dealing with that.

Hahaha, yeah Midge assumed Silif was a spy when she hired him, but she always had the philosophy that she didn't care about spies on her crew as long as they were interesting and still did their jobs. At one point she had six hunters on staff and knew three of them had been sent into Salarr by other orgs but as long as they still did work she didn't really care. The only time she ever bothered punishing a spy was when one of them stole a crossbow from someone else on the team, and even then if he'd given it back she would have said hey, take a beating and we're even. But he didn't.

I felt really bad that that PC ended up with a reputation for killing a lot of people because apart from once, every time I PKed somebody with her it was either a legitimate accident or someone who refused to accept a minor punishment for doing dumb stuff.

SPEAKING OF whatever happened to... does anyone know what happened to Khrel-Kas Kurac? With a totally different PC years later, I ended up being the one who stumbled over his body and damn I wondered what could have actually killed that guy.

Khrel... A grisly death in a locked compound room, wasn't it? I remember trying to investigate at some point because Khrel was the last one in possession of an artifact I wanted oh so badly. It might have been a staff assisted death for all I know.

Whatever happened to the "dusty" something man who would troll Torgun on a semi-annual basis? I seem to recall the first meeting being over Dusty pickpocketing some gloves or something. He threw some pocket sand in to Torgun's face (giving me a "handful of colorful sand") and ran off in a fun chase around town.

Another time, at a Kadian party in the Red's, Dusty pick-pocketed Torgun's helm out of his lap and gave it to the beggar outside.

What happened to Merchant Ita of Salarr?

Is it bad I went through here just to see if I was mentioned?

Basically I got a full time job and a boyfriend, who is now husband, and didn't play as much but since I wasn't a sponsored PC(I started her at 15 and worked my way up) they couldn't force store me, so she was demoted to Merchant Trainee after 15 years of service. I tried playing again after that for a bit but couldn't get back in to it. I'd taken her as far as I could without turning myself into a PC shop. :-D She was eventually force stored as when I did try and come back a year and a half to two years ago I suddenly didn't have a PC at all.

Sure had some great times though!!! Set up trade arrangements with the Runners(or maybe the Soh? Or both?) to get the needed furs for those popular kyrl armor. Are kyrl still a thing? She spoke fluent allundean and bendune, and was getting pretty good at mirukkium. No, she wasn't a linguist, she picked all those up IG. Master level at everything except like tent making or something. Those that didn't work with her should know she was OBSESSED about organization. You didn't mess with her crafters hall and move things.

Of all my PCs, she's my favorite. I think because I'd been previously known as a mudsexor, but IC things happened and she wasn't interested in that. It made for a lot of other fun though.

She donated a massive amount of coins to Poet's Circle (she was an Apprentice bard, I want to say Irofel).

Basically half her fortune she gave to the circle. I have it in my notes but I think it was about 60,000.

And... I think it was Irofel? Is it bad I don't actually remember? Her lack of memory for faces and names was totally all me. The only reason my other PCs remembered people was because I kept a file with sdesc and names and little notes on them.

I played Mallor. The Pyre wasn't being built in the Academy. It was in the courtyard outside, in front of the large double gates.

I didn't exactly die in a fire - I was killed by a fire elemental during the events that occurred around the volcano rising outside of Allanak. I've lost all of my logs and every scrap of information I had on Mallor, unfortunately.

Also, I had no metal weapon. That was a copper spear commissioned by Khem Tor at some point in my lifetime. I don't know if she got it before I died, because I can't remember if I ever saw it or not.

I still have all the logs I saved of Irminia's conversations with Mallor. And yeah I knew it was within the gate to the Academy from the road, but forgot that the first "room" was an outdoor courtyard. I loved making that "crematory" and acquiring the rubies and setting "arrange" descriptions for the stones to show the progress, etc. But I'm pretty sure it never got implemented, even though it was approved and "virtually" complete, needing only the slaves to finish the work (coded implementation in the room) and Minnie (or her replacement) to sign off on its completion and declare it done. That thing was magnificent. Was so sad when I found out Mallor kicked the bucket. He was awesome.

OK, a couple people asked in this thread and I felt up to typing a bit of it out, so here's the super abridged story of Midge, former feral bush kid turned eventual Salarr Agent.

Jik-Tanil was a tribal kid who got separated from her family at a super young age and raised herself in the bush like Mowgli. She just ran around in a loincloth and a spear for the first while I played her because 1) I was playing my first ranger!!! and 2) I wanted to try Hard Mode. After a few IC months of this, she acquired enough basic gear to interact with people, and I decided to take her into Allanak for the first time.

Apparently she wandered into Allanak just as news had broken that some Muarki had been murdered, and the first thing that happens to her is that a templar shakes her raggedy ass down and more or less accuses her of murdering the gypsy. She doesn't speak great sirihish and is terrified and just kind of gives him all her money and runs away. The templar and a noble (I want to say it was a Borsail? This was ten years ago...) corner her in the Bard's Barrel and try to press-gang her into work. Again, she is a feral just-about-nonverbal bush child.

At that point, someone in the bar mentions that a guy called Khortoc Salarr is hiring hunters. She decides to lie because maybe if she Works For Someone, they'll leave her alone. It works. She tells them she works for Salarr. The templar and noble let her go. The noble makes her hilariously sit at his table and fidget a bunch while he drinks, though. Good on that guy.

A while later, she ran into Khortoc Salarr, and broken-englishly explained that he HAD to hire her because it was IMPORTANT.

... Fast forward thirty years...

Anyway, yeah, she was a fun PC. Since she eventually became literate, there's a whole bunch of her IC journals still floating around in game, or at least they were last time I encountered some. I've thought about posting them on the Logs section but they go into some stuff that's frankly still pretty IC so I dunno.
 
Someone asked how she died, and again, I think it's still a little too IC to get into here, but she left Salarr under pretty hilarious circumstances.

There was this guy, Rance Kurac, who was her stoner bro, and everybody thought they were a couple, so when she got knocked up actually-by-her-mindbender-boss, they decided to pretend the baby was the Kuraci's. He drove Kurac's most expensive wagon off a cliff and got in a lot of trouble sometime around then. They tried to murder-corrupt-betray themselves out of some shit they got into. Midge really cared about being able to have a human baby because at one point in her life she got impregnated by a bug NPC and had to have grubs dug out of her. Then someone threw the grubs down a steam vent in Allanak and she felt emotionally attached to them, so after that she decided she needed a kid to help her get over the loss of her grub-children.

During all this, the House Head of Salarr offered her I think 45,000 coins and a marriage into the family if she killed this other NPC, Raital Salarr. She hated Raital's guts but in the end she couldn't kill him because he helped Khortoc the mindbender escape from some shit, and she was pretty loyal in that way.

So instead she and Rance fucked off into the desert as outlaws for a while until ~~things happened~~ and she had a really cool death. Later on a future PC of mine found what I think was the SKELETON OBJECT OF HER BABY.

That was kind of disjointed but I have sadly forgotten a lot of the details and I don't have access to my logs right now! Ask away if anyone has any specific questions.

I had the lavender-haired half-elf once. I forgot her name. Her eyes were somewhat shaped like an elf's, with a black-blue color, but the rest of her looked human.

She was a pickpocket/stonecrafter and spent 99% of her time conversing with people in a disjointed way that was totally disconnected from reality. Like Silteye's sister basically, I played her too. I remember one thing Pearl/Pasheen said, that (something something something) and the sky wouldn't stop bleeding.

The half-elf herself died up in Tuluk despite being a 'naki to using kick by accident in a tavern brawl in whatever the cheap tavern was called. Someone said ooc: I would suggest running. Good times.

Before this thread gets hijacked, I'll put it back on the rails.  Whatever happened to Danashj?  I was playing Hurlen-da Kurac at the time and it was very early on when I wasn't sure who he was, yet.  We talked quite a lot over the Way and I think it helped me get a sense of who he was and then she just kind of vanished.  If I recall she was Koranth's aide and that was a scary spot to be.

Quote from: BadSkeelz
She survived Koranth and stored a little while later. Maybe her player can shed more light; I hope they did well in Virtual land. I always enjoyed our scenes together when I wasn't scared shitless by her boss.

I suck for not seeing this WAY sooner.  :-[

Skeelz is pretty much correct for the most part. Danashj was kind of a bumpkin to start, so the whole Aide thing was really glamorous to her (occasional backhands not included!  ;) ). When Koranth got 'reassigned', it was a bit of a shock that she didn't know how to handle too well. She had the option of serving Lyvren Oash, but considering the history between she and Koranth, was very paranoid of the idea. She decided to strike out on her own and open a teensie clothing shop in the commons.

I then went on to play several sub-1 day rangers because holy crap am I bad at that class!  ;D

Templars are here
Dudes are here
the sole elf is here

one of the crowd says 'is that statue an elf?'

I was his crazy little sister, Pearl. My real name was Pasheen. As usual, I never got into trouble or did anything of significance, but I was part of why he joined the Byn with me and thus led to his becoming sargaent and getting involved in fun things. I feel a little proud of myself for that. He also had a notion of vengeance after my death. I wonder how that turned out.

I played Sergeant Barzel 'Silteye' and he is still one of my favourite characters. Joining the T'zai Byn as a reasonably wealthy individual (even after several bricks of spice were confiscated from them) was a strange experience. I, and Barzel, absolutely adored Pasheen and as a character who was family-focused watching her die was truly terrible. He was the first to climb out of that cave/hole and ran all the way back to the skimmer without waiting for anyone else. As soon as everyone was back in Allanak he bought a keg of Oash spirits and holed up in their apartment and proceeded to drink the entire keg then passed out and spent the next two weeks moping around the apartment mourning instead of training. He then spent the next several years unsuccessfully trying to leave the T'zai Byn.

Barzel went through several failed relationships trying to replace his family. Finally he managed to leave the T'zai Byn so he could focus on avenging his sister's death when he met his death at the hands of a former Runner he had trained and kicked out of the T'zai Byn in the desert outside Red Storm. He had always thought of that particular person as something of a joke but the punch line turned out to be Barzel himself! It's a pity he couldn't contact Corra, the Whiran, when he tried as she had promised him a one time escape from certain death and he knew he needed it then.

Whatever happened to Grieves, the dastardly scoundrel who did Barzel in?
Whatever happened to Barzel's first lover (who he truly loved and wasn't trying to use to replace his lost family) Orphet/Ordo?

Also WTF happened to Trooper Salter? The willowy, slate-eyed man. The Unit went to Red Storm one time, partly training and partly so the runners/troopers could spend a days somewhere other than the Gaj, and the next morning Trooper Salter was no where to be found and no one knew (or admitted) what had happened. I always wondered about that.

Post by: Delirium on December 21, 2016, 08:40:47 AM
I don't think Corra herself could have helped him at that point. She had been <redacted> by <redacted> and was completely powerless. But she did have a certain extremely powerful protector that could have, without him knowing the difference. Alas! We had plans for Silteye. What a shame.

I had such a cool death. How, when and where. I had wished up before having to leave about getting a cool death and was wanting to store anyway, because of that whole 'I have to store' thing I do. At least I went out well, instead of leaving my peeps to wonder what happened.

You: A Nilazi with a dead beetle (I think) and a few dead creatures following you into the Rinth.  You had such beautiful, long fingernails.  I shadowed you for a while, but I lost you in the bends.  Call me?  (Except I saw your body on the pile a week later.  But still: nilazi.  Call me?)

So I think this was almost exactly 2 years ago.  I was always curious about this plot/person.  (If it's still relevant, then don't call me.)

Whatever happened to Grieves, the dastardly scoundrel who did Barzel in?

I might be mistaken about it. But if I recall correctly, the Guild killed him for killing Silteye. I might be confusing things though. I was playing a character at the time and I caught hint that the leader of the guild liked silteye and he was recently dead. Long and behold, my character turned into an old friend of Silteye, his comrade in arms, his confidante, his best friend. Used a corpse's rep to get myself vouched in. Then I participated in the kill of the dude who did Silteye in, despite buying that guy a drink for overcoming a complicated challenge just a few rl days ago.

Thinking back ... I might be confusing silteye for some Salarri Corporal warrior that got owned by shoot arrow/ride ranger. Whom the guild killed. It's been awhile ago. I forget things.

Whatever happened to Holten Irofel? And Methyas Groot?

I vaguely remember hearing something about Holten perishing due to explosives. My PC at the time was in the Legions and I'm pretty sure it was Eunoli or a Jihaen telling me about it.

No idea about Methyas. Possibly storage as the death of Bards usually cause rumors/templarate documentation. Never saw his death mentioned anywhere. He was kind of outdoorsy IIRC, so maybe one day he didn't return from a hunt.

Was that the Reborn Lord? I remember the Plainsman, the Reborn Lord, and Lord of Storms. Though the latter two might've been different names for the same guy? At one point though there were definitely three sorcs who all knew each other, and weren't actively trying to kill each other off.

Oh man I remember this guy. He harassed a PC of mine who was out mining glass one day and I was a new enough player that I didn't really get how terrifying it should have been. I was sitting there like "what's with this dude" and then he started magicking and it kind of clicked "ohhh right this is bad."

There was a bony, brown-haired woman sorcerer around at the same time who IIRC was also part of Rouge Dude's entourage? If that helps? I don't remember any of their names and I didn't keep logs back then sadly.

found a log. here's most of the folks I chilled with back then:

The bald, black-goateed man (Rouge/Rogue Templar)
The silver-haired, amber-eyed woman (Radia)
The lean, burn-scarred man (Plainsman/Donjolo)
The runty, one-eyed dwarf (Tawlin)
The pearl-haired female half-elf (Aliza)
The bald, vine-tattooed man (Enki)
The spruce, dark-fleeced man (Orpheo)

this was in April/May 2006

I think I know what became of all of them except Rouge Templar

It definitely makes me understand why people are never like "What ever happened to Riev's characters?". I mean. I never even APPROACH the level of some of the players here.

That one time? Where I had a cool Legionnaire? And I did NOTHING with it? ... Ugh.

I remember your last Legionniare who was a Byner and Salarri hunter before becoming a solider on two characters, one which was in House Salarr (Zenthar).  I think it was Tulay was the other one, though I might be recalling someone else.


I mean. That HAD to have been Creek but it was so long ago I don't remember being a Bynner and Salarri. Gavin was both, but he wasn't a Legionnaire and was also as boring.

I like my characters when  I play them, but in retrospect, nothing cool happens to me and I'm incapable of making cool things happen. C'est la Arm.

If you played Gavin Riev I can't believe you don't remember my favorite character.  Lefty, you single handedly trained that HG into a beast.

Hey. What happened to Smiley.

Smiley was  a human that my Jaxa Pah (as well as Templar Solych, I suspect) was grooming to become a leader of the Guild. Which ... sort of required me to remove a looooot of opposition on her path to glory. Then at one point, we were talking over the way and suddenly she dissapears.  Did she die? Did she just log off and then I've never encountered her? We had some cool scenes and loyalty trusts going.

If Bowl Cut hadn't been blackout drunk and murdery in regards to Samim that would have been the turning point for her to flip to the dark side. She was a devout and loyal descendant of a Tor officer who enlisted in AoD, then was asked to aide. But she was also a subguild sorcerer. There had been no IC reason for her to pursue learning spells, she never even tried or knew she could, and she'd never considered a Templar could ever be wrong.

I generally had a plan to wait for something that would cause her to waiver in her belief before she went down that route. She didn't run so she never had that chance.

I enjoyed playing around Bowl Cut as the aide for however long that lasted. He was a great character. I was generally left unsatisfied with Samim's ending because of how/why it happened. I'm not really all too surprised when it happened because of his temperament. Just feel like it could have been much more awesome as a revenge story. Oh well.

For that matter: What ever happened to that Crazy-fuck bowl-cut haired Templar's Aide? That guy was pretty awesome for an aide, and I've always been disappointed that I kept trying to pin shit on him that I knew wouldn't stick.

As the player of Alme (the short, pech-haired man), Balthazar's aide, getting to play closely with bowl-cut was a real privilege. I can give him (and Laura) the highest praise: he made me log in every day, and made me hate to have to log out.

People gave Balthazar a lot of shit, ICly and OOCly, for being "too crazy, too over the top," etc.

But LauraMars gave the character internal consistency and depth that not everyone got to see. As his aide, Alme got to see it. I don't think I've seen another character better at embodying opposite extremes. Balthazar was unhinged, but consistent and believable; there was a method to the madness. He was dangerous and unyielding, but at times also vulnerable and uncertain. He was funny, but also tragic. He was often foolish and had unrealistic ideas, but was also cunning. What made Balthazar so good is that he could shift between these different extremes while clearly remaining the same, consistent character. It never felt forced, and if you learned to look for the precursors and signs (as Alme eventually did, due to how much time he spent with Balthazar), the shifts in behavior could be predicted. What's more, Laura was confident and fair enough in her roleplaying as to allow Balthazar to be influenced. If a character knew how to press his buttons, Balthazar could be calmed or enraged, or led to believe or doubt something. It takes skill and guts to let your character be malleable like that, and I take my hat off to Laura for it. In short, Balthazar was a very "real" person to me.

Balthazar is my favorite Armageddon PC, and the experience showed me that LauraMars is one of the best (perhaps the best) roleplayers in the game, for my money. She absolutely nailed the character.

Some memorable scenes involving Balty:
* In the first job interview, Balthazar dangling Alme over the edge of the city wall, while interrogating him about his thoughts on eating erdlu meat
* working with Lady Alisima Oash (another great boss that Alme was spoiled with the privilege of getting to RP with) to convince Balthazar not to marry his erdlu in public, in order to protect him from the political backlash
* being forced by a Great Lord to give up Balthazar's prize erdlu; an intimate dinner with the Great Lord, Balthazar, a Borsail Lord, and another individual, to follow
* after a failure, Balthazar summoning Alme to a private room in the temple, and with rage and violence, very successfully convincing me both ICly and OOCly that Alme was about to die. Alme successfully pleaded for his life while hiding underneath a table (sometimes it's good to be short)
* a dangerous public confrontation between Balthazar, Alme, Mint, Alisima, the wonderful Valorisk, and another individual
* many others


Alme got a lot of shit for being Balthazar's aide, as Riev noted above. Which was funny, because Alme was my experiment in "taking a 'lawful good' character and involving them in Allanaki politics." Alme was the kindest and most altruistic character I've played. He tried to help everybody, and worked to save several characters from death, even when they treated him poorly. His motivations were a lot like Varys' in GoT, who seems to work for "the good of the realm." Toward the end of his career, Alme's sense of morality began to wear down, but he was still very "lawful good."

It's funny, because I think a lot of people hated Alme out of a suspicion that he was turning Balthazar against them. On the contrary, he (usually) counseled Balthazar to be more cautious and less violent.

Well met, sandwich man!

Ratface definitely was in the mindset of "this aide is either too big for his britches, thinking he can control a Templar, or he really IS able to influence a Templar, which makes him dangerous".

I loved that he was one of the few people who understood "taking business into the alleys" and that it wasn't an outright death sentence to go in there. He was willing to "learn" and picked up on things very quickly.

Ratface just didn't want to give up his favorite toy (the assassin that managed to kill a noble) and unfortunately, that toy let slip some damning information. I HAD to play Ratface true to character, which was to try and protect his assets and pin it on someone else, despite the fact that NOBODY EVER believed Alme was behind any of it. And as I've mentioned to people before, he'd probably STILL be alive if I, as a player, kept to the idea that Guild Bosses should stay in the alleys. I was bored and wanted some RP sessions, so I went to meet with someone southside and got caught.

As a player, I never believed Alme would get blamed for the assassination, but Ratface thought if he made the story believable enough, there would be some doubt, and he wouldn't have to give up his toy.

Well met, sandwich man!

Ratface definitely was in the mindset of "this aide is either too big for his britches, thinking he can control a Templar, or he really IS able to influence a Templar, which makes him dangerous".

I loved that he was one of the few people who understood "taking business into the alleys" and that it wasn't an outright death sentence to go in there. He was willing to "learn" and picked up on things very quickly.

Ratface just didn't want to give up his favorite toy (the assassin that managed to kill a noble) and unfortunately, that toy let slip some damning information. I HAD to play Ratface true to character, which was to try and protect his assets and pin it on someone else, despite the fact that NOBODY EVER believed Alme was behind any of it. And as I've mentioned to people before, he'd probably STILL be alive if I, as a player, kept to the idea that Guild Bosses should stay in the alleys. I was bored and wanted some RP sessions, so I went to meet with someone southside and got caught.

As a player, I never believed Alme would get blamed for the assassination, but Ratface thought if he made the story believable enough, there would be some doubt, and he wouldn't have to give up his toy.

You hit a perfect storm of bad luck: 1) Alme happened to be sneaking around at the time and saw Ratface in the Commoner's Quarter, and then found him in the Ginka, and 2) Balthazar happened to be logged in at the time.

Alme was dangerous...he was able to influence Balthazar, to a degree (and as I said above, this is only because LauraMars was a fair and skilled enough roleplayer to allow that to happen; Laura was definitely OOCly aware of the times Balthazar was ICly being manipulated, and was cool enough to go with it).

But like I said, Alme tried to save people more than he tried to hurt them. He saved Ratface from death in the jails at least once, because unlike Balthazar, Alme knew that it was better to work with the Guild than to fight against them. Alme thought saving Ratface's life would be the start of a mutually beneficial business relationship...but I guess Ratface had other ideas.

If Ratface was more amenable to chilling out a bit, he could have been rich. But, when you started trying to get Alme killed directly, he needed to go.  :)

I remember I crit failed on someone and my 'not-so-mundane' identity got revealed. Thankfully it was some Red Stormer Half Giant raider. So I'm walking along the tradesman street, all wondering on what to do about it and there stands Balthazar. You! Come with me!

Holy fucking shit, that was fast! I fumble along with him to his dome meeting place expecting to get me head ripped off and it's just an info shake down. Ooooopphhhhhhh. I remembered this moment IRL where I think to myself, "I should probably start breathing again."

I had one interaction with Balthazar and it was terrifying ICly and even OOCly. I was Seren, a fresh Oash servant. I ended up storing soon after to play in the Tablelands, but the fact that Balthazar was around in Allanak always made me question my decision. Great job.

Balthazar was a shit head. We actively plotted on him for rl weeks but I think no one pulled the trigger because he created bonkers conflict and kept everyone anxious and alarmed.

I loved playing with him.

This was my goal. Glad to hear it worked and that most people enjoyed it.

Large Hero (whose lavish praise has made me blush) is correct, Balthazar could be influenced - and rather easily, if you knew what buttons to push (of course, if you pushed the wrong ones...). I created him with such a thing in mind. I wanted him to be a weak character who still had a great deal of power, since that seems like a common "Templar" archetype few people are willing to explore in this game. There was a hilarious scene in the jails where someone (Ratface?) successfully negotiated his way out of execution by feeding Balthazar a sob story about how he was actually selling spice to make money to buy his poor sister an erdlu.  I think Alme may have been feeding him these lines. It worked though (much to my OOC amusement), and the guy walked free...that day.

Not as many people caught onto the whole 'Balthazar can be manipulated!' thing as I'd hoped.  I guess they were scared to try it. Understandable. But Alme was fantastic at it, and was a perfect lackey in general.  His willingness to play the 'straight man', obsequious toady, and act as a buffer between the public and a dangerous nutcase was nothing short of heroic. 

And yes, Alme saved many, many people from horrifying deaths.  A lot of characters ended up owing Alme their lives without ever even knowing it. It was a precarious tightrope to walk, and the poor dude got nothing but shit for it.  Only Alisima Oash (who was an out of this world character too OH YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW /craigmiddlebrooks) really understood the relationship between Alme and Balthazar. But she knew Balthazar better than anyone.

Also The Wanderer, the amount of OOC frustration and rage I experienced when Valorisk got snuffed was extreme. I was legit so mad, I actually cried. They had such a great rivalry. Practically every scene together was electricity and scary conflict. I was sad to see it end (and even sadder that I had nothing to do with it.)

This was fantastically amazing of both of you. LauraMars was the recipient of my first ever efforts to seriously manipulate another character in the game. I'd been playing for seven months and was legit shocked when it worked. Alisima accomplished many, many goals by letting Balthazar play with her hair. Literally nothing more.

Alme is perhaps my favorite Aide character ever. It was so enjoyable to watch his struggle, and to see how he supported his own goals, Balthazar's goals, and often my goals. He had this fabulously cocky side that I'm not sure how many people got to see. And there was a sense of kinship I felt with Alme in some ways. Like I could tell when he was thinking, "don't worry, we'll fix that (whatever new crazy thing Balthazar had done now) later." (Or maybe that was just me?)

I honestly doubt I will ever find the sort of crazy, awesome, exhilarating RP again that we shared. You took me on such a ride, but I loved every single moment of it. Thank you for teaching me so very much. I would not be the player I am without you. <3

Post by: Large Hero on May 02, 2017, 09:29:54 PM
Balthazar and Alme have just concluded a meeting about political matters. Let's put Balthazar in blue and Alme in green.

At long last, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar stands up from a large round table in the center of the room.

You stand up from a large round table in the center of the room.

You say, in sirihish:
     "Shall I make arrangements to have your party in some weeks, at the time we spoke of? I have not yet made those arrangements, given...events, Lord Templar."

Pointing a finger towards you, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "This is at the forefront of my mind, Alme. But outside these walls...not a word. Not a thought. Not a single breath of what we have spoken of will pass your lips."

Immediately bowing, you say, in sirihish:
     "Of course, Lord Templar."

Addressing your earlier question, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "Oh. Well, I suppose we may as well. It seems less exciting somehow, all things considered. Perhaps we will just make it a small, general announcement on Meleth's Circle. "

You ask, in sirihish:
     "So...not a party. Only an...announcement. Wine, food - no?"

With a wave of one hand, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "No, no. Just an announcement, I think that should do. Oh, and Lady Alisima and I have quite repaired our friendship. "

Rising from his bow, you say, in sirihish:
     "That gladdens me, Lord Templar. It is good. It will strengthen you."

His ugly features assuming an expression of regal sacrifice, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "I see now I was wrong, all wrong, to shun her. It is not her fault I am marrying someone else."

The short, pech-haired man's eyes pop wide.

You say, in sirihish:
     "Oh. I thought. You were marrying her. Lord Templar."

Shaking off his noble expression and gazing in shock down at you, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar asks you, in sirihish:
     "Whatever gave you that impression?"

In deadpan, blunt logic, you say, in sirihish:
     "I assumed your announcement was of marriage, and I was not aware that you were involved with anyone else."

With a dreamy chuckle, moistening his lips indecently, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar exclaims to you, in sirihish:
     "But of course I am, Alme. The love of my life. The ginka of my eye!"

You ask, in sirihish:
     "...Lord Templar?"

Seeming in quite good humor by whatever thought occupies that...brain of his, chuckling to himself, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar asks you, in sirihish:
     "Yes, Alme?"

You ask, in sirihish:
     "Who..?"

You say, in sirihish:
     "You've, ah. Never mentioned their name. In my presence. "

Beginning to look rather severe, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "Of course I have. I must have referred to her hundreds of times."

You think:
     "No, never."

You notice: A dangerous glint appears in the sallow, bowl-shorn templar's wet grey gaze.

The short, pech-haired man turns slightly, away from the sallow, bowl-shorn templar's eyes.

You say, in sirihish:
     "Ah...please, indulge your servant's faulty memory, Lord Templar. "

You say, in sirihish:
     "Sometimes, I am very stupid and forgetful."

Tapping the side of his nose, all good humor restored, as he indulgently chuckles at you, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar exclaims to you, in sirihish:
     "Oh, my dear servant. My dear and loyal servant. Aaah, Alme. My good servant Alme!"

Quietly, still looking away, you say, in sirihish:
     "I am that, Lord Templar."

His gaze sparkling like he has just recieved thirty years worth of birthday presents at once, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar whispers to you, in sirihish:
     "It is a surprise!"

You ask, in sirihish:
     "To...me?"

Clasping his hands behind his back and beginning to pace, his expression noble and lofty once more, well, as noble and lofty as such an ugly face can be, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "To the city! They must be surprised by the most excellent union I am about to..."

The sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "Well, that I am about to embark upon."

With resignation, as if unwilling to probe further, you say, in sirihish:
     "Very well, Lord Templar. It shall be a surprise."

Nodding sagely, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "Yes, Alme. Yes. Well, I must go and see my sweet, lovely erdlu, Sapphire, before I meditate."

Changing topics quickly, you say, in sirihish:
     "You asked me the other week to probe into House Kadius, Lord Templar. I cannot do this effectively, yet. But I have a plan. It will be very easy."

You ask, in sirihish:
     "I do not think you care overly much if that Zhaka Kadius dislikes you. Am I correct?"

After a longing glance to the door, and the things which might lie behind it, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "Oh - do you? Wait - Zhaka Kadius - he dislikes me? How strange! I was under the impression he favored me, given the amount of donation he has shoveled my way."

The sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "But I do not care what a peasant thinks of me, no."

The short, pech-haired man stops, suddenly, frozen.

Alme remembers something Balthazar said on a prior occasion.

You think:
     "Earlier, he said..."

You ask, in sirihish:
     "Why does Sapphire need a wedding present, Lord Templar?"

With another indulgent chuckle, giving you a warm, comrade-like slap upon the shoulder, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar exclaims to you, in sirihish:
     "Ah, my clever servant, Alme. I can't keep anything from you!"

The short, pech-haired man regards the sallow, bowl-shorn templar with uncloaked, wary suspicion, his squint not abating even as he's clapped.

Coolly, slowly, you say, in sirihish:
     "I've heard it said...that I don't miss anything."

The sallow, bowl-shorn templar just chuckles and nods, continuing to pat you on the shoulder.

The short, pech-haired man lifts a hand to his head, and rubs the bridge of his nose and forehead, as if he were suddenly struck with a great headache.

Briskly brushing his hands together as he sets off for the door, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "Well, I really must meditate."

With a hearty chuckle, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar opens the door.

Striding forth from the meeting chamber, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar exclaims to you, in sirihish:
     "A most excellent servant you are, Alme! I confess, all my troubles seem to melt away to nothing when we speak!"

The short, pech-haired man can't seem to move.

Just assuming his servant will follow him, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar walks west.
You follow the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, and walk west.

The sallow, bowl-shorn templar begins to stroll towards the stairway, his head up, his stooped shoulders back, arms swinging at his sides. He doesn't seem to have a care in the world.

You say, in sirihish:
     "Lord Templar...I, ah...left my...bag...containing your letter. In the room. And it isn't...proper."

You exclaim, in sirihish:
     "For me to be there. Alone. Very...improper. Will you, ah. Accompany me. Briefly. Back into the room. Yes!"

With a gasp, swinging around to notice you behind him, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar asks you, in sirihish:
     "You did? My letter - in the room - really???"

The sallow, bowl-shorn templar exclaims to you, in sirihish:
     "Alme, how could you be so irresponsible!"

The sallow, bowl-shorn templar hurries back in, peering about the meeting chamber.

You close the door.

You say, in sirihish:
     "Oh. Silly me, Lord Templar. I have it with me. Pardon me for wasting your time. "

The sallow, bowl-shorn templar looks from the door to you.

You notice: A suspicious look begins to cross the sallow, bowl-shorn templar's homely face.

You ask, in sirihish:
     "Where, ah. Where will Sapphire be? During the announcement?"

Beginning to slowly reach for the door handle, his gaze fixed upon his short little buddy, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "By my side, of course."

You say, in sirihish:
     "Why? Why of course, Lord Templar? She isn't normally by your side."

You think:
     "ARE YOU GOING TO MARRY YOUR FUCKING ERDLU"

The short, pech-haired man smiles, in an utterly false manner.

Beginning to sound quite baffled at your current attitude and demeanor, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar asks you, in sirihish:
     "Because - we are - why wouldn't she be? Given the circumstances?"

You say, in sirihish:
     "The circumstances! The circumstances of a...Templar. Making a wedding announcement, to a Lady of Allanak! Yes. A highborn, human lady of Allanak. "

You exclaim, in sirihish:
     "A Lord Templar would want his trusty erdlu at his side, yes. During that announcement. The announcement which does not otherwise involve the erdlu!"

The short, pech-haired man looks at the sallow, bowl-shorn templar almost beseechingly.

At this speech of yours, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar frowns deeply, he frowns darkly. He frowns most forbiddingly at his servant, you.

Looming over you, his features grim beneath the mushroom-shaped dome of his haircut, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "Alme, I am beginning to be troubled by your persistence...on this topic."

Skipping the questioning of it, skipping the why-the-fuck of it, and coming from a different angle, you ask, in sirihish:
     "Why...Lord Templar...must it be -public-?"


After spending some time considering your question, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "Because, my servant. It will give the people hope. It will give them encouragement. It is..."


The sallow, bowl-shorn templar flaps his hands in circles, grasping for just the right words to say what he is about to say.

The sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "It is the right thing to do. Besides, my endless devotion to my future wife cannot be understated, no! "

You think:
     "I have to kill this fucking erdlu."

You say, in sirihish:
     "And the Lady Alisima. Knows that you are...going to marry...your erdlu."

The short, pech-haired man says this slowly, bluntly, with barely-concealed derision.

You think:
     "By the fucking Highlord, save me."

With a pleased smile that bends his perpetually grimacing mouth into a more upwards-seeming direction, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "Ah, no. I told her it was a surprise."


You notice: The sallow, bowl-shorn templar watches you closely.

(The short, pech-haired man seems to have a delay in his reactions, as if his brain were processing too much.)

Slowly, with very practiced neutrality, you ask, in sirihish:
     "And you think she will be filled with hope and encouragement, on learning that she will be passed up in favor of your erdlu, Lord Templar?"

Looking past your shorn scalp at the wall beyond, his features once more suffused with noble suffering, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "She does not think that way about me, Alme. We are only friends. She has stated repeatedly that she has no romantic interest in me."

You say, in sirihish:
     "...and you would prefer Lady Alisima. To, ah. To..."

Struggling with it, you say, in sirihish:
     "To Sapphire."

Nodding his head sagely, wisely, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "In truth, I do feel much the same way for her. A great deal of strong affection - a great deal, a very great deal - she is very wise and very sweet - but that is where it must end for us."

Turning a fraction away, and nodding just as sagely, but at the wall, you say, in sirihish:
     "And the true depth of your affection can only be returned by Sapphire, your erdlu."

Instead of answering you, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar just exhales a sigh, intaking the sight of the ceiling as if the answers to the world's most puzzling questions were written there upon the tiles.

Murmuring the single word, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says, in sirihish:
     "Sapphire."

Beginning to turn towards the door, his movements energized, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar exclaims, in sirihish:
     "I must go and see Sapphire!"

You say, in sirihish:
     "You know, Lord Templar. A noble marrying a highborn is a ridiculous idea, isn't it? Marriage. Marriage is...a contract? Yes? It's not...a relationship. It's a business arranagement."

You exclaim, in sirihish:
     "You can't enter into a business arrangement with an erdlu!"

Whirling around to gnash his teeth at you, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar exclaims to you, in sirihish:
     "It is a union of hearts!"

Thunderously, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "And you can't tell me what to do! You are a mere peasant! You can advise! You can suggest! But no - you cannot order me."

You exclaim, in sirihish:
     "...you will hand Valorisk Borsail every victory in all your future rivalries, with this, Lord Templar!"

You think:
     "Appeal to that. It will work. "

His grey gaze flaring wide, his expression one of pure lunacy, shaking his fists at the ceiling, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "Valorisk Borsail...Valorisk Borsail...I demand he be present at the announcement, Alme. I demand it."

After a long pause, you say, in sirihish:
     "...allow me to accompany you to see Sapphire, hm? If this is to...go on, I should buy her a bloody present! A...collar, from Kadius, maybe."

You think:
     "I just want to see where she's kept. The guards. That sort of thing."

Nodding his head a few times as he strides for the door, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "At last, you see sense."

They depart.

That scene remains one of my favorite Armageddon memories. It was a glorious culmination of weeks - MONTHS - of story build up as Balthazar dropped hints of his affection for Sapphire everywhere I could realistically slide them in. I have never laughed so god damn hard at anything that has ever happened in this game ever. I'm talking uproarious laughter of the sort that made my husband enter the room and ask "What the fuck is going on right now?"

Alme's portrayal of frustration and confusion and shocked surprise was so picture perfect (and so indicative of the emotions his player must have also been experiencing), it still causes me a delicious shiver of  sadistic glee whenever I recall it.

Peering at your face, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "Are you crying because you're sad, or because you're leaking? No matter."

Striding a step closer to you, hooking fingers into your gem to pull your face close to his own, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar asks you, in sirihish:
     "Any last words, elf?"

The silver-eyed, sleek elven male shudders, flinching as the sallow, bowl-shorn templar's fingers near your dull black gem.

Loosely folding his arms across his chest, quite chipper in demeanor as he remarks, the short figure in a golden-beaded, crimson silk greatcloak says to you, in sirihish:
     "I can't wait to hear you scream."

You say to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "His... Shadow... Protects."

Giving a sharp nod to the soldier holding you in his grasp, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar says to you, in sirihish:
     "It does. But not you."

Someday I'll share more, but I just want to add to the accolades. Valorisk+Alisima+Balthazar... Holy shit you guys.  Thank you for the amazing fun.   

Also Alme and Ratface...someone did think it was possible and was hunting.

It wasn't totally a "This couldn't ever possibly have happened" but there was a weak link for motive. Ratface was just a poor 'rinthi who got put in charge of something he didn't have the balls to control.

If Alme HAD gotten pinned for the whole thing? Oh man would I have OOCly felt terrible.

LauraMars and I have put together the follow up scene to the one LargeHero shared. All of our own POVs are color coded for you. Balthazar is in green, and Alisima is in purple. Enjoy!



_______________________________________

Reaching to take his hand and lead him deeper into the estate, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "I've been meaning to ask. Do you only eat that which the Highlord provides you with?"

Allowing his hand to be taken as he follows her, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "Yes."

Grand Dining Hall [E, S, W, Save]

[/color](The whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen trails the fingers of her free hand through a stone fountain.)

A Marble Staircase [E, W, U, Save]

[/color]As she leads him up the stairs, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Why? Our food is perfectly wonderful."

Top of the Staircase [N, E, W, D, Save]

A Wide Hallway [E, S, W, Save]

(Stationed partially behind the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar frowns, though the expression is not much different from his normal one.)

Alisima unlocks and opens the door.

An Elegant Bedroom [E, W, Quit, Save]

[/color]Behind them, Alisima closes and locks the door.

Alisima thinks:
     "I do hope I'm not putting my room into danger with this."

As the door is shut, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "I feel the act of nourishing my body with the Highlord's bounty brings me closer to His Will."

Clearly considering that as she crosses the room, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "I see. I can understand that. What else brings you closer to his will?"

Alisima unlocks and opens the balcony door.

A Small Balcony [E, S, Save]
   Carved entirely out of white alabaster, this balcony juts out
prominently from the main building.  The railing, made out of a rare white
marble, gradually curves its way around the second level of the estate. 
   From this height, it is possible to see the dusty bazaar to the west, and
the stadium far off to the southwest. 
An elegant azure and black floral arrangement rests here.
A gracefully woven agafari basket swing hangs here.
The sallow, bowl-shorn templar has arrived from the east.

[/color]As she walks over to the edge of the balcony, you close your amber-clasped azure silk shoulder bag.

As he trails her through the fine room and out onto the balcony, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "Meditation."

Curling her fingers around the balustrade as she looks out over the city beyond, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "I've never tried meditating. It requires being still for too long."

As he frowns at the heat-hazed city skyline that sprawls out to the west, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "It is one of the few things that I feel I can do well."

(The whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen seems to clench the railing momentarily, her knuckles turning white.)

(The sallow, bowl-shorn templar seems oblivious to your tension, just looking out at the view from the opulent location.)

Stepping away from the edge and turning to watch him instead now, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "What else do you do well?"

Alisima thinks:
     "there isn't going to be a single good lead into this conversation"

Alisima thinks:
     "it's going to be horrible and awkward and painful the whole way through"

Alisima feels a little worried that his temper may turn on you.

With a glance at the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, and a self deprecating smile that contorts his unlovely features, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "Kill people, perhaps. But I would be more interested in your answer to that question, Lady."

Arching a brow at him, seeming more than a little surprised by the turnabout in questioning, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Me? Oh, a number of things to varying degrees, I suppose. I'm good with plans, with people generally, with seeing potential in a person"

Running her fingers lightly along her hair as though to check for any strays that may have escaped her bun, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "I do hope more will present themselves as I get older."

(The sallow, bowl-shorn templar's gaze flicks to your fingers as they play with your hair.)

Alisima thinks:
     "bluntly, or gently?"

Feeling uneasy, Balthazar thinks:
     "Those are not leaves I see, growing up through her fingers - they are simply strands of hair."

Alisima thinks:
     "is there any way to be gentle?"

Pursing her lips with indecision the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen huffs out a soft breath.

After a momentary silence, in which he simply looks at her, Balthazar  says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "I have little doubt of it."

Balthazar thinks:
     "Simply strands of hair. Simply strands of hair."

Trying her best for a gentle tone despite her blunt words, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Balthazar, I'm sorry, there's no easy way to say this. You can't marry Sapphire."

Balthazar feels incredibly surprised.

(The sallow, bowl-shorn templar looks rather dumbfounded at your words.)

(The whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen's tone is really quite firm for all its gentleness.)

Taking a step back from her, Balthazar exclaims to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "How - how did you know of that, my Lady? That was meant to be a surprise to all the city!"

With the blind obstinacy of the mad or very foolish, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "Also, certainly I can. It is meant to be."

Keeping her voice as soothing as possible, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Do you trust me, Balthazar? Do you like me at all? Believe that I am smart and make sense?"

Alisima feels like you aren't certain this was the best direction to take, but you're committed now.

Seeming quite baffled, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "But of course. Yours is one of the finest minds in all of Allanak. I am sure you will be the Oash Senator - or whatever else your heart desires - if only you --"

The whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen seems to wait to see if there's more forthcoming.

Taking another step backwards, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "Well, if only the rest of the city will see that...er..."

His brows beginning to lower as he peers at her, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "I cannot think how you learned of this matter."

Extending both of her hands, palm up, to him, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "If you trust me and believe in me, then please take my words to heart. You cannot marry Sapphire. Not if you wish to retain any semblance of command of this city."

Ever so gently, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "I am thinking of you, Balthazar. You cannot rule through fear when you are the laughingstock of the city. Reputation matters, and you will ruin yours."

Spluttering out a few arguments, Balthazar asks the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "But Alisima! That - she is necessary to my...health. This seems quite obvious to me. Who would dare gainsay it?"

Balthazar feels angry.

Lifting her jaw imperiously, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "I could gainsay it. You want me to order you about, no? I have taken great care with that offer, and have done nothing to harm you. You have not climbed the steel dragon naked and painted purple."

(The sallow, bowl-shorn templar's fingers, half-shrouded in the silk sleeves of his robe, begin to curl into fists at his sides.)

Gentling her tone again, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Instead, I ask you to reconsider."

The heat normally reserved for naughty commoners beginning to bleed into his tone, as he steps forward to take back the space gained in retreat, Balthazar asks the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "You would interfere with my marriage, Lady Oash?"

Balthazar feels his temper start to quicken.

Softly, her voice laced with regret as she takes a step closer to him, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "You cannot marry a bird, Balthazar. She is unable to sign a contract. Please come back to yourself now."

Alisima feels afraid.

Grinding his teeth, his features reddening, his hands fisted tight, Balthazar exclaims to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "She is not just a bird!"

Balthazar feels defensive of Sapphire.

Soothingly, with every outward appearance of being calm, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "You're right, of course. I'd prefer not to be beaten by you this day. Can you calm yourself?"

Bellowing out in frustration at the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, with every appearance of being not calm, Balthazar shouts in sirihish:
     "I would never beat you!"

Balthazar feels insulted at the very idea.

(Hiding her hand in the folds of her cloak, the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen digs her fingernails into the flesh of her palm.)

Beginning to laugh an uneven, mad laugh as he rakes both hands through his hair, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "Ahah. Hah. That is - the very suggestion, Lady. Quite upsetting."

Leveling a bland look at him, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "And yet you are quickly losing control of your temper."

Alisima feels quite afraid, despite his protestations.

With a dark mutter, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "You are disparaging Sapphire. I daresay that would unbalance anyone."

Slowly taking another step toward him, closing the distance between them by half, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "I apologize. I am not trying to disparage her. But the point remains that you cannot marry her."

His grey eyes glazed with a lunatic's fervent belief as he begins to talk VERY quickly, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "But I need her! She is not just a bird, Alisima, I - I -I-I begin to see now that you may find this strange, but she is not just a bird..."

Offering her hand to him once again, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Then tell me about her, Balthazar."

Alisima feels deeply uncertain about all this.

Clenching and unclenching his free fist, as the other clasps hers, licking his lips repeatedly, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "When I look upon her, she is - there is nothing there but her, she is not anything she should not be."

Closing her fingers around his, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "And what do you see when you look at me?"

Alisima feels like you would rather not know the answer to that.

Alisima thinks:
     "If he compares me to that BIRD, I might just wallop him."

Alisima feels like it is QUITE a lot of effort to keep your calm here.

Shaking out his fist and reaching it to touch a strand of her hair that had escaped her bun, a regretful smile twisting his thin lips, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "You are...one of my lovelier hallucinations."

Frowning slightly at that, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "I am a hallucination?"

(The sallow, bowl-shorn templar grinds his teeth.)

Alisima feels so terribly confused.

His fingers tightening in her grasp, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "I...don't think so. But your face changes, things are not always...quite right."

With a coaxing smile at her, Balthazar asks the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "It is hard to describe. Alisima...let me marry Sapphire. I am sure it will fix all that is wrong with my sight. Will you truly stand between us?"

Balthazar feels his control over the situation rapidly escaping his grasp.

Shaking her head, her expression filled with sadness, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "You cannot, Balthazar. It would ruin you. It would ruin me, too. Do you wish to hurt me that way?"

Alisima feels so bad for this terribly unstable man.

Balthazar feels stunned.

(The sallow, bowl-shorn templar's homely features look as stunned as they ever have.)

Seeming far more interested in the latter half of her statement, Balthazar asks the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "-Ruin- you? Why should it?"

Alisima thinks:
     "Oooh, I might have gotten him with that one."

Closing the distance between them until she stands a mere hand's breadth away, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "You think Vallie is the only person who believes we are sleeping together? He's not. Our reputations are linked, whether we are or not. Would you then throw me over for what people will see as a bird, though you know differently?"

Alisima thinks:
     "A BIRD!!!!!"

( A variety of emotions play across the sallow, bowl-shorn templar's features at the conclusion of your speech: frustration, lunacy, sadness, despair, and ultimately, anger.)

Gently, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Alveron asks me how you are. Commoners speak our names together. I have asked you to act on behalf of me and my House. We are intertwined, Balthazar."

Balthazar thinks:
     "Sapphire, no!"

(The whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen never once moves her gaze from the sallow, bowl-shorn templar's face.)

With a sudden, explosive exhale of breath as he yanks his hand from her grip and claps both of his hands around her upper arms, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "Then -you- must marry me."

Starting in surprise but making no move to break free, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Why?"

(The whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen trembles lightly in the sallow, bowl-shorn templar's hands.)

Feeling not terribly certain at all, Alisima thinks:
     "He won't hurt you, he won't hurt you, he won't hurt you."

His unromantic proposal continuing, his big soldier's hands clenching her biceps more tightly, Balthazar asks the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "You are all I can stand to look on, besides Sapphire. If your hair is vines half the time, if your lips are petals, what of it?"

Alisima feels your arms begin to bruise where he grips them.

With a soft intake of breath, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Vines? My hair is vines?"

Alisima feels like that was a very foolish thing to say.

With a few unhinged laughs, ignoring her question, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "It isn't so bad. Perhaps it won't get worse. You are still not as bad as -- and the things you say are somehow always true, despite everything."

(The whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen winces ever so slightly as the sallow, bowl-shorn templar laughs, his fingers continuing to dig into her upper arms.)

(Gritting his teeth, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar forces his fingers to loosen their grip.)

Watching him still, without moving, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Not as bad as... what?"

Post by: Zenith on May 03, 2017, 07:27:46 PM
.... continued.

Wrenching his hands away from her upper arms and turning to grip the balcony rail, looking out at the city that tumbles to the western horizon, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "The rest of it. "

(The whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen catches her breath a moment and closes her eyes as the sallow, bowl-shorn templar releases her and turns away.)

Resolutely, as if aware of how grimly unpleasant a prospect it is, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "Marry me. "

Stepping up beside him, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "I am not in charge of my own marriage, Balthazar. You know that as well as I."

Balthazar thinks:
     "Sapphire, I won't forsake you. Perhaps a private ceremony."

Sounding quite angry, his hands white-knuckled as they grip the rail, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "Then take me to someone who is. I promise you, a moment's conversation will be all that is needed."

Stating it without emotion, as if it is simple fact, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "I will likely be married to an ambitious cousin, or perhaps a Valika to better secure the position of House Oash. I imagine I will remain an Oash, either way."

Balthazar feels his thoughts linger on the bag in his pack.

Turning to look at him once again, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "More than a moment's conversation is needed, Balthazar. My House will not marry me without political gain."

Alisima thinks:
     "Thank the Highlord for that."

The gradually rising sun sending the long shadow of the Oashi mansion stretching like a giant's hand across the city, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "I - will do what I must, then. Whatever I must."

Leaning his weight upon his hands as he turns a glare upon her, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "Whoever I must truckle to, whatever rings I must kiss, any letters that must be written."

Gently, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Start by calming your mind, Balthazar."

Offering a poor facsimile of a smile as she reaches to gently trace her fingertips across his jaw, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "You're worrying me."

Alisima thinks:
     "very much, in fact."

(The skin of the sallow, bowl-shorn templar's jaw twitches involuntarily at the touch of your fingers.)

Taking a steadying breath, prying his fingers off the rail, Balthazar asks the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "Am I?"

Balthazar feels his pulse pound in his ears.

As she brushes her thumb across his cheekbone now, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Yes."


Balthazar feels compelled to smash and destroy something.

Feeling barely in control of himself, Balthazar thinks:
     "No, no. You will frighten her."

His wire-tense stance loosening a fraction with every breath, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "Then you must tell me how to stop doing so."

Balthazar feels unsure as to why, exactly, he is frightening Alisima.

Slowly dropping her hand from his face, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Is my hair vines at the moment?"

(The sallow, bowl-shorn templar rakes a rather clinical glance across your face and hair.)

Feeling your attention wander momentarily, Alisima thinks:
     "I wonder if creatures of Vivadu are made of plant life?"

Turning from the rail to look at her more fully, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "No. Not at the moment."

Continuing to watch him quite closely, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Would it soothe you to let it down for me?"

Some hint of wry pragmatism bleeding into his tone, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "My Lady, it's impossible to say."

Reaching up a hand to catch the single stray strand of hair dangling at the side of her face between his fingers, you ask the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "How can you stand to look at me?"

Balthazar feels hopelessly angsty!

Holding perfectly still as he toys with her hair, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Why should I be unable to?"

Smoothing the lock behind her ear, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "I am half convinced you're not real, most of the time."

With a hint of a smile, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "I assure you I'm quite real. Are all your hallucinations so solid?"

Alisima thinks:
     "maybe the walls are what he thinks are other things?"

Alisima feels like you have no idea what to do with the fact that your hair is sometimes vines.

Seeming unable to stop his fingers from traveling further into her hair, seeking some sort of fastener or pin, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "I am...uncouth. I am poor company. My face is hardly a joy to behold. There is also the issue at hand."

Alisima feels more curious than disturbed.

Turning her head enough so that the pins in her bun are easier to reach, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Yes. Do you think I need only sweet, beautiful things in my life? That I am so shallow? You are a thousand times more interesting than the rest of them."

Feeling honest, Alisima thinks:
     "Because you're fucking mad beyond compare, but it's still interesting."

As he coughs out a completely sane laugh, extracting a pair of pins from the voluminous confines of her bun, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "More interesting. Hah. "

Her lips curving into an affectionate smile, Alisima says to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "It's the simple truth, even if the reasons behind it are anything but. You make me very curious, and in some ways I wish to help and protect you."

(The whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen's bun begins to droop as the sallow, bowl-shorn templar pulls out pins.)

His amusement holding a bitter edge, sliding out another pin, laying the discards atop the railing, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "Protection."

Balthazar feels like laughing hysterically, if it wouldn't further worry her.

Her completely serious gaze finding his, Alisima asks the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, in sirihish:
     "Would you rather I stop?"

Feeling the grating see-saw of city politics grinding away at his mind, his failure of sobriety yanking at his ankles like a silt horror's tentacles, Balthazar thinks:
     "I would go back to Yaroch if I could."

Feeling oddly vehement about it, Alisima thinks:
     "you're MINE"

As her hair tumbles down her back, the last pin causing it to give way, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "No."

As her hair falls free, the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen lets her eyes briefly fall closed and sighs with enjoyment.

Alisima feels wonderful when your hair falls free.

Sinking both of his hands into her mass of hair, fingertips massaging her scalp, Balthazar whispers to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen in sirihish:
     "Lisi."

Alisima feels your scalp tingle pleasurably.

As she opens her eyes to look at the sallow, bowl-shorn templar, the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen smiles very much like a well-fed quirri.

Balthazar feels the smell of her hair enter his nostrils.

Grasping the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen's shoulders, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar turns her gently around, facing her towards the city and her back towards his chest.

Looking out over the city as she leans back against him, seeming much more relaxed than before, Alisima whispers to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar in sirihish:
     "You're mine, Balthazar. I'll paint it on your chest if you need reminding, but you're mine. I protect what's mine."

The sallow, bowl-shorn templar runs his fingers through the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen's hair, exhaling a sigh that ruffles the back of her loosened locks.

Alisima thinks:
     "My Templar. My Aide. My Circle. Mine. My City."

Balthazar thinks:
     "You can't protect me from everything."

Alisima thinks:
     "even if I have to protect you from yourself."

Instead of responding, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar drops a kiss onto the top of the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen's head and curls his arms around her waist, hugging her close against him.

Alisima thinks:
     "what the fuck am I going to do with you?"

(Breathing in, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar draws the scent of your hair through his nostrils.)

The whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen crosses her arms over the sallow, bowl-shorn templar's, seeming perfectly content to simply stand there.

Hesitantly, hopefully bringing it up, still holding her close, Balthazar whispers to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen in sirihish:
     "Perhaps - Sapphire and I - could have a private ceremony?"

Alisima feels that moment ended with a splash of cold water.

Balthazar feels like he's only partially joking.

(There is an element of humor in the sallow, bowl-shorn templar's voice - though he doesn't seem to be wholly joking, either.)

Not turning her gaze from the city stretched out before her, Alisima whispers to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar in sirihish:
     "Can you explain to me why you need to marry? Either Sapphire or myself?"

Alisima thinks:
     "I cannot believe I am on par with an Erdlu."

Alisima feels rather offended by that.

Unwinding one arm from around her to begin stroking her head and hair once more, Balthazar whispers to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen in sirihish:
     "I simply can't escape the notion that it would somehow help. Perhaps the Highlord is telling me to do it."

Leaning just a touch over the railing to allow better access to her hair, Alisima whispers to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar in sirihish:
     "I doubt the Highlord would be pleased by one of his servants taking a marriage contract so lightly, actually. Imagine how the Houses would react."

His head-massaging hand pausing mid-stroke, you whisper to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen in sirihish:
     "I don't take it lightly! I take it very seriously."

The whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen shifts, turning in the sallow, bowl-shorn templar's arm until she's facing him, her back to the railing.

The sallow, bowl-shorn templar frowns at the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen as her position shifts. He does look very serious.

Her words gentle but firm, Alisima whispers to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar in sirihish:
     "I am certain you do, but you must see how it would appear to be otherwise."

Smoothing loose locks of her hair back behind her ears, Balthazar whispers to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen in sirihish:
     "I'm taking your word for it."

Balthazar thinks:
     "For now."

Ball of his thumb tracing her lower lip, Balthazar whispers to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen in sirihish:
     "And I don't want to hurt you."

Sighing as she rests her chin on his shoulder, Alisima whispers to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar in sirihish:
     "Tell me more about what is going on in your head? If I know more, perhaps I can help."

Resting his cheek atop her head, Balthazar whispers to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen in sirihish:
     "Perhaps later, my Lady. Will I ease your mind if I promise not to marry Sapphire until you tell me I may?"

Alisima feels MUCH better about that.

Satisfaction coloring her tone, Alisima whispers to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar in sirihish:
     "Very much so, yes."

Giving her a firm squeeze, Balthazar whispers to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen in sirihish:
     "Very well, then. I promise I shall not marry Sapphire until you tell me I may."

Alisima thinks:
     "that is not ever going to happen."

Amending the very promise he just promised, Balthazar whispers to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen in sirihish:
     "Or unless the Highlord Himself tells me I must do it. You have to admit, I couldn't argue with that sort of thing."

Alisima thinks:
     "THAT is not ever going to happen, either."

Snuggling closer as she is squeezed, Alisima whispers to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar in sirihish:
     "Alright. If the Highlord himself tells you to marry Sapphire, you may. HOWEVER, you must have one witness who can tell me it truly happened and was not a hallucination."

Balthazar feels frustrated.

Balthazar thinks:
     "Although, Sapphire would be a witness."

With a nod against her head, petting her hair with steady strokes, Balthazar whispers to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen in sirihish:
     "It shall be as you say. But, Lisi - I still do not know how you found out!"

Relaxing into him as he begins to stroke her hair again, Alisima whispers to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar in sirihish:
     "I forced it out of Alme. He mentioned something about the wedding and I made him tell me."

You contact the short, pech-haired man with the Way.

A frown in his voice, Balthazar whispers to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen in sirihish:
     "Oh."

Alisima sends a telepathic message to the short, pech-haired man:
     "I just told Balthazar that I forced the information about the wedding from you after you mentioned it. I am told I have a very intimidating stare if he asks for details."

Balthazar thinks:
     "Under the circumstances, I suppose she will advise me not to punish him. Still, I hope he is not as free with all my secrets."

Lightly, Alisima whispers to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar in sirihish:
     "You left me very curious."

Inscrutably, Balthazar whispers to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen in sirihish:
     "Hmm."

Reluctantly, the sallow, bowl-shorn templar takes a step back from the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen.

Meeting her gaze as he puts a bit of space between them, Balthazar says to the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen, in sirihish:
     "I should go. People have been bursting through my mind wall all day."

Balthazar thinks:
     "I must also apologize to Sapphire."

*And they exit, with no more meaningful interaction*

That was a fun read! Thanks. Alme debated telling Alisima, because he wasn't sure how close she and Balthazar actually were; if Alisima secretly hated him, she could really ruin him with the Sapphire wedding knowledge, for instance. But he couldn't just ask Balthazar if he trusted Alisima. You couldn't just ask Balthazar simple questions. You had to dance around him - if you were too direct and blunt, he was liable to flip out on you.

But he also knew he had no chance of changing Balthazar's mind himself, given that he was only a peasant in Balthazar's eyes. Telling her was a gamble. It turned out to be one of the best decisions he made.

I have so many more great logs from that time period. One of the Golden Ages of Armageddon for me, to be sure.

Looking out over the city as she leans back against him, seeming much more relaxed than before, Alisima whispers to the sallow, bowl-shorn templar in sirihish:
     "You're mine, Balthazar. I'll paint it on your chest if you need reminding, but you're mine. I protect what's mine."

The sallow, bowl-shorn templar runs his fingers through the whip-thin, kanjel-eyed teen's hair, exhaling a sigh that ruffles the back of her loosened locks.

Alisima thinks:
     "My Templar. My Aide. My Circle. Mine. My City."

Balthazar thinks:
     "You can't protect me from everything."

Alisima thinks:
     "even if I have to protect you from yourself."

Balthazar: You crazy mother fucker. You write like a mad man ic. You were nuts as well. I interacted with you once, and it was absolutely amazing. I forget if I threw kudos your way.

Also, I'm so sorry what happened to Sapphire.

Me and a guy, he is long stored, were planning on giving you an erdlu painted silver. It was going to be hilarious.

I forget if he decided not to do it because of morale reasons, or because he thought you would break his neck.

Maybe both.

Alisima: Fucking lul, I love your character. Everytime I played with your character they felt natural and like an actual person, not that most times I interact with people I don't feel them come alive.

I had the lavender-haired half-elf once. I forgot her name. Her eyes were somewhat shaped like an elf's, with a black-blue color, but the rest of her looked human.

She was a pickpocket/stonecrafter and spent 99% of her time conversing with people in a disjointed way that was totally disconnected from reality. Like Silteye's sister basically, I played her too. I remember one thing Pearl/Pasheen said, that (something something something) and the sky wouldn't stop bleeding.

The half-elf herself died up in Tuluk despite being a 'naki to using kick by accident in a tavern brawl in whatever the cheap tavern was called. Someone said ooc: I would suggest running. Good times.

You!! I've been searching for you my whole life!
You were the mad woman my character, Drov swore to protect like his little sister. ... I think... after you got into some trouble with guards in allanak or something.
I was just on the verge of using rescue and killing every guard in tuluk... when I heard the ding. That crazy breed got tattooed on his back with the rest of his life with a big smile and wild eyes.

I think he did, yep.

Notable accomplishments besides murdering a bunch of people included:

Scoring permanently wanted in Allanak, Tuluk, and probably Luir's
Keeping a skeleton from a victim in his house to talk to because he was lonely
Sneaking into Nak anyway because Storm was boring
Working for the blue-robes while also being ostensibly wanted to be served a death sentence
Living through the deaths of like ten lovers and probably all of his enemies

etc.

Kolo was awesome! All the people I played with I really had fun with - thanks you guys. I hope nobody's salty that they didn't get to kill him. That character expected assassins coming until the day he stored.

I had a character who was mates with Pikks (the black-skinned half-elven male), Albie's sergeant in the Byn.  When I met Albie the first time he was confused why Pikks was talking to this breed, and he not-too-subtly pointed out the obvious to Pikks "Uhh.  She's a breed." 
My PC looked between the two of them, a little perplexed, and after Albie trundled off Pikks just explained, all matter-of-factly, that in Albie's head, he's a sergeant, not a breed, and that was that.
 
Years and years later, with another PC, I was in the Byn with Albie.  Pikks was long dead at this time, and Albie knew it, but when some random PC "the black-skinned half-elf" came walking by, Albie stops what he's doing and peers over at him, looking all sorts of confused.  "Uh.  Sarge?"

Yeah, Albie was pretty great.

Lots of the old crew from the era, I already know the endings of, but -

early 06 - late 07 end of the world times:
Expansion Division - Bryn? Hawk? Arun? I know Bryn wound up in Tuluk, and I know Arun we SUSPECTED of being a traitor.

Serba?

Venom?

Deadeye? (I know there've been several; this one was of the less-than-savory celf persuasion.)

Wow, amazing that someone remembered Deadeye. I played him back in 2007-08.

You are Moebius.
Keywords: murky-hued tendril-bearded elf Deadeye
Sdesc: the murky-hued, tendril-bearded elf
Objective:
Long Description:
Code Generated Long Description.
You are 44 years, 0 months, and 10 days old,
 which by your race and appearance is mature.
You are 90 inches tall, and weigh 7 ten-stone.
Your strength is very good, your agility is very good,
  your wisdom is very good, and your endurance is above average.
You are neither hungry nor thirsty.
Your health is 94(94), you have 118(118) mana, 112(123) stamina,
and 92(92) stun.

You are:
Tribemember of the Haruch Kemad, jobs:
A member of the Sandas, jobs:
A member of the Blackmarketeers, jobs: leader
Relationship to the land is malign.

He was a Nilazi c-elf and was up to all kinds of wierd shit with rinthi folk, the merchant houses and also the d-elves and sorcs who were alive at that time. He was a Haruch Kemad member and also ran the Blackmarketeers out of the eastside.

A favourite passtime of Deadeye's was to <do creepy thing> scaring people. The other was of course exploring - right from the sewers of the rinth to the far reaches of the Mantis Valley and also the deepest crypts of UnderTuluk. Terrorizing the rinth with <creepy stuff> was another fun activity!

He would always be seen wearing a different kind of cloak and had his hands in quite a few shady deals going on in the Rinth/Nak and the Pah.

After so many years, I guess its safe to mention that he'd made a deal with a psionicist who needed his help, and in turn gave him the ability <to do terrifying stuff!>

Over the years, some of the personalities Deadeye interacted with : Stare, Ankha, Venom, Raynai, Brethel, Midge, Khortoc Salarr, Kon, Kija, Dancer, Falcon, Dolly, Ink and Slash, to name a few.

Deadeye died an ignoble death when he stepped off a 3-storey tower and fell to his doom in the Pah.

Ha, I remember playing with Deadeye when I was playing Rash.

Rash died in Tuluk because I didn't know Tuluki templars could do (x, y, z) at the time, after he got so much heat on him for stealing Samos's keyring and magick sword that he wasn't even safe in the 'rinth anymore.  We had cut some deal with the d-elf Pah dudes, so I was "safe" in the d-elf outpost, but I got bored one day and flew to Tuluk.  Derp.

Pip was one of my longest lived characters. Henn (the player of Henn) doesn't play anymore, but that player really rocked the mud for me. We had such a crazy life. We traveled the known, worked for Tor, Kadius, and then on our own, made enemies of templars, shared apartments with templars (and assassins), lulz'd with Fangs (while we also were terrified of being murderized by them), tried to hide from sorcerers, and traded with everyone and lied to everyone at the same time.  We were shameless exploiters and lucky opportunists.

------

I also played Fanny. So many awesome folks all around Tuluk. I hope that the playerbase increases enough that we can have more places to play again. Is it snobbish to think that some of the best players played in Tuluk?

It's been a few years, but I'm back to playing a little here and there.
Title: Re: Whatever happened to...?
Post by: chrisdcoulombe on May 14, 2017, 01:44:15 PM
I interacted with Pip across two of my characters.   Pip was great.       I played Dryl the dwarf that, with the help of Pyron was able to steal a Wagon full of <stuff>. 

Pip is standing out on the outer circle and Pyron is piloting the wagon horribly.  Dryl is so wasted from drinking <stuff>.  We stop and talk to Pip and I think some Desert elf.  Pyron and Dryl give  them a bottle.  Pip and that desert elf look at each other with some emote of surprise and say "<stuff>"!?   

Also I played Aray, who became a private in the AOD.  Aray had become friends with who he thought was a crafter,  Gul Forager.  Gul and Aray had been friends for around a year before he discovered that Gul was a witch.  Gul and Aray hated elves and loved to play dice.  They were basically best friends.   

They concocted some reason to start a fight with this elf named Az, who I believe was a Sando, but could be wrong.  Any way as it escalates there is this Ruk named Grell?  I think.  Grell got accused of doing a bunch of damage to the folly.

Aray steals some <stuff> from the Templar's quarter and tells Gul about the <stuff> and that Grell was suspected of damaging the folley.   Aray tells Gul we could use this opportunity to teach that Az a lesson.       

So, Aray and Gul change into rinth gear and walk up to Az's safe house,  Aray eats <stuff>.  We pretty easily wipe that safe house with two long lived characters a warrior and a viv.  Inside there is a chest with like 10k coins and some custom boots that belonged to Az.

Gul takes the boots and starts wearing them around and Az sees Gul with the boots on.  Gul Shirks off Az, but Az being a Jaxa has some power.   

Pip comes and talks to Gul about it and suggest that Gul got the boots from Grell.  So Grell ends up getting blamed for the whole thing and is eventually killed.

Oh right, the stolen wagon... I think I was with Smorte, who I don't think plays anymore, who was Pips old Tor buddy and roomy at the time.

Pip really liked Az, he made some beautiful armour. Pip never went into the narrows, but he was really impressed by the whole Jaxa situation, it seemed so fragile but fierce.

I interacted with Pip across two of my characters.   Pip was great.       I played Dryl the dwarf that...

Also I played Aray...

Glass was murdered by Black because Shank told him to. Orders from on high. Then Black took her position. Very Armageddon chain of events.
Shank was a brilliant staple too.  I went through a few rinthers in a row, and heard this one story he used to tell about a stolen sword and a crazy woman just as many times.

Whatever happened to Shank?

And the Dealer before Glass was a short guy -- he ran with a guy named Gantz, Gentz?  I was one of their whores.
It hadn't been a year yet. Now it has.

Shank was a Rinthi mul assassin that I made specifically to avoid high-profile/leader roles, because I figured he'd be a little too thick/temperamental to promote to a leadership position. I was wrong - he joined the Guild thanks to Broker, the slurp-tastic disfigured freak who was the ranking Guild PC at the time and was amazing. He carried a little spoon he'd eat soup with, and since he was missing part of his cheek and his teeth were exposed, half of it would run out back into his bowl. I loved that dude. Then there was the rest of the crew - Dealer and a number of others, some of whom might be alive but not playing, so I'll refrain from mentioning.

Broker died, Dealer and Shank pulled double-duty as leaders. Dealer ran the public stuff, Shank ran the Rinth side. Shank hired two ruffians out of the Byn named Plague and Gantz who were two of the best Rinthi scumbags anyone could ask for. Then I had life issues, which happened a few times in Shank's life, and when I came back, things were topsy turvy. Dealer died, Plague got promoted, Plague died, and some chick named Glass was in the Guild now, and acting like she was in charge--and also double-dealing with the Templarate. She had a small crew that were loyal to her. So Shank told Black, hey, you take care of this Glass problem, you move up. He did, and Shank kept his word. Black got murdered, Shank was de facto in charge again, Blue came around. Blue came in charge, then quit playing.

Shank played a long, long time in a desolate empty westside Rinth (or at least desolate and empty as I was now offpeak), unable and unwilling to leave it because it's home and the Guild is his family, and I got bored. I stored him for another role.

Edit to add: Shank kept pieces of all of his favourite members of the crew. He had Broker's spoon, one Dealer's cards, Plague's earring, <Redacted because unsure if people knew he was in the Guild>'s ring, and <Redacted also's> bandana all in a pouch on his person. He also only ever killed 3 PCs, one of whom was the crazy woman nauta mentioned. The story was 100% true.

She had a small crew that were loyal to her. So Shank told Black, hey, you take care of this Glass problem, you move up. He did, and Shank kept his word. Black got murdered, Shank was de facto in charge again, Blue came around. Blue came in charge, then quit playing.

Shank played a long, long time in a desolate empty westside Rinth (or at least desolate and empty as I was now offpeak), unable and unwilling to leave it because it's home and the Guild is his family, and I got bored. I stored him for another role.

Edit to add: Shank kept pieces of all of his favourite members of the crew. He had Broker's spoon, one Dealer's cards, Plague's earring, <Redacted because unsure if people knew he was in the Guild>'s ring, and <Redacted also's> bandana all in a pouch on his person. He also only ever killed 3 PCs, one of whom was the crazy woman nauta mentioned. The story was 100% true.

Shank was pretty cool :). I was that tribal that just hang around that awesomesauce wheezy/slurpy dude for no obvious reason. Had life issues/tribe responsibilities as well, but what little time I've managed to spend with you guys was totally awesome.

Glass was murdered by Black because Shank told him to. Orders from on high. Then Black took her position. Very Armageddon chain of events.
Shank was a brilliant staple too.  I went through a few rinthers in a row, and heard this one story he used to tell about a stolen sword and a crazy woman just as many times.

Whatever happened to Shank?

And the Dealer before Glass was a short guy -- he ran with a guy named Gantz, Gentz?  I was one of their whores.
It hadn't been a year yet. Now it has.

Shank was a Rinthi mul assassin that I made specifically to avoid high-profile/leader roles, because I figured he'd be a little too thick/temperamental to promote to a leadership position. I was wrong - he joined the Guild thanks to Broker, the slurp-tastic disfigured freak who was the ranking Guild PC at the time and was amazing. He carried a little spoon he'd eat soup with, and since he was missing part of his cheek and his teeth were exposed, half of it would run out back into his bowl. I loved that dude. Then there was the rest of the crew - Dealer and a number of others, some of whom might be alive but not playing, so I'll refrain from mentioning.

Broker died, Dealer and Shank pulled double-duty as leaders. Dealer ran the public stuff, Shank ran the Rinth side. Shank hired two ruffians out of the Byn named Plague and Gantz who were two of the best Rinthi scumbags anyone could ask for. Then I had life issues, which happened a few times in Shank's life, and when I came back, things were topsy turvy.

I kept your stupid plains ox in <that Guild place> for an unreasonable amount of time before I finally snapped and killed the stupid thing.

That was such a great Guild crew. Erv/Suckface/Broker, Dealer, Shank, Plague, that turquoise-eyed woman I remember only as Gems, Zee the mul, Dar's tribal. And then the spooky upper echelon of Laughter and Tears that a lot of the lower level PCs never even met. Like, I don't think Laughter ever even met Gantz. Laughter used to occasionally meet members of the crew southside and they'd like sneer and side-eye at her as some soft, shitty southsider without knowing she was their three-levels-up boss.

I remember when Laughter had no choice but to kill someone. Hork asks her for orders. She can't order Hork to let a guy live. So we kill the guy, and she immediately runs into the backroom, grabs Plague's hat off his head, and vomits explosively into it.

Plague took that shit in stride.

The Luirsman (or possibly Tuluki, I have an uncertain memory of him showing me his hand tats) drovian who was the representative of the witch's quarter to the templarate a long time ago and wore a rope knot puzzle around his neck. Might have had black hair. He was ninety-two or something like that when I met him, and I asked him if he worried about keeling over, and he told me he was not going to keel over. I wonder if his death was something that could be shared, 'cause he sure ain't around now.

I remember when the Guild killed off some Amar dude for killing a Salarri Corporal (Or was it Silteye? I forget). But that guy was a Htanya's pet at the time. So we dragged his corpse off and sawed it apart, then spread the severed limbs around all over the place, making it look like it was the Scary Abomination that killed and torn him apart.

I remember I crit failed on someone and my 'not-so-mundane' identity got revealed. Thankfully it was some Red Stormer Half Giant raider. So I'm walking along the tradesman street, all wondering on what to do about it and there stands Balthazar. You! Come with me!

Holy fucking shit, that was fast! I fumble along with him to his dome meeting place expecting to get me head ripped off and it's just an info shake down. Ooooopphhhhhhh. I remembered this moment IRL where I think to myself, "I should probably start breathing again."

Ooh I was that Red Stormer Half Giant raider. Tosser.

(Of course you didn't get outed by a random HG)

Mined witches was the reason he always carried a pickaxe, after he was eventually told about them.

Bio entry 5:

I have a lotta spice and it must be the best because I always want to have more if I don't have more I feel sick and bad. That is because spice is good.

I sometimes say hello to people and ask them for some coins and sometimes they are not dumb and give me some and sometimes they are and run away and that means I will not ask them for coins next time I will get the stuff because I am smart.

I have a lotta stuff and pals but a lot get eaten by beetles but that is okay because that is how the known works. Some slavers Yellow-Hair Man and a dwarf called Grond came to Storm and said they wanted to catch muls and make them slaves again and I made them scared because I got mad and they didn't come to fight they musta gone a different way. I gotta look after my mul Stormer pals. I will kill those slavers if they come back by being big and hurting them.

A lotta people know me now and say hello Tosser and then I say yes I am Tosser, I am a stuff getter. Some people said I was a raider but they are dumb because raiders are bad and I am a good person stuff getter and smarter than them because I am better at not getting eaten.

You were Tosser? Hahaha. Kudos man. I was hoping that we'd have some fun interactions together. Now that you knew my identity. I heard that at some point, you were digging for worms, because my BS got you thinking that mindworms lived underground.  Big Huge Kudos.

Hilarious, that your next character ended up being in the very same clan as me. Also a pretty colorful dude, whom I kept feeding people.

Submit stuff and I will pick and choose stuff so people know how great Northlands and Team Evershine was.

So is the original submissions request working? I'd like to submit logs but some are saying it doesn't work, so what should I do?

On second thought, maybe it's the wrong place to ask this question.

Since it's been over a year, I always wondered: during that big HRPT battle where we moved on Ten'Serak(?) or whatever, do you'all remember when the main army breaks its march upon seeing a magicker all in flames resting in the desert there?  And we just slaughtered the shit out of it.  I always wandered: was this a PC who had just gone AFK in the wrong spot?

The space between the two front lines was entirely closed off, but could be fallen into - the fall was one-way - there was no way to climb back out.

See, what had happened was....

I was investigating the area around Ten Serek for a third party (neither Allanak or Tuluk).
I fell into the inescapable space between a giant wall and an Allanaki army behind gates on the other side.

I spent three real-life days trying to find a way out, and had eventually decided to invade a kryl cave in that space and steal their source of water before I died of thirst.
I magicked myself into neigh indestructibility, and sat down to restore my mana/move points right outside the cave.
I went to pee.
IIRC, I came back, and an army had beaten me to about half-way through my hit points before I stood up and started slinging fireballs, etc.

If anyone has a log of this, I would really like to see it.

I am still curious why Corra summoned my char to her imminent death. :P

You shared a keyword with someone extremely dangerous who she'd been ordered to kill. I felt awful.

If it makes you feel any better, it's one of the reasons I tried not to resort to summon on PCs again unless it was the only avenue that made sense.

Brutal.

<.< I'm glad that damn spell is long gone.

Whatever happened to that gaggle of Wind Gickers who were messing w. the SLK for like 2 months in 2011? There were 3 (?) Us and the Arabet got 2 (least I think 1 was a wind witch...). It was super fun. No gank summons. Just good RP.

And Pitch. What happened to Pitch? Lusts nearly PK'd him in the Pah during the start of the Asil shitstorm...


I played the purple-eyed breed ( don't think that was his sdesc )
He was not aware of the others.  The first time he summoned the SLK merchant PC, it was by accident.  He was a big game hunter/poison procurer by trade.  He saved the SLK from the trap he'd sat for whatever beast he was planning, and sat with her for several game hours sharing food and water with her before helping her find her way home. Actually, I think he ended up magicking her home at no small amount of risk to himself.  He kidnapped her several times after that, and she would tell him stories about the tribe, and he ended up somewhat obsessed with Lusts for Blood due to a great respect, if not jealousy, over her hunting prowess.  He would converse with Lusts over the way often, and I think they even had a friendly war game (at least from my PCs point of view) of hunting each other. 

He had actually been trading with the Sun Runners previous to being outed as a witch by a Sun Runner (I hope a newb) identifying him while 1.invisible, 2.facewrapped and a 3.wearing different clothes/cloaks when living his two different lives.  Ended up dying while Invis and roleplaying with the Arabet you mentioned.  I did not know the loophole/feature/bug about a certain protection spell and [leave] exits that he used to kill me, so I died. :D  It was a very fun character.  I wish I could remember the SLK's name that he would kidnap for "dates nights."

Whatever happened to Lady Ru? What happened to Pappintia?

Since it's been over a year now and I have a little time (work Internet down, woo!), this is what I remember about Puppy:

She was a great bastard/aide and so of course the other aides loved to hate her. Ru was constantly fielding requests by other nobles, on behalf of their aides no doubt, to pretty please look the other way if Puppy got killed. But Ru was all no way, I love Puppy.

Then Ru fell madly in lust with this commoner that eventually became her concubine. The concubine and Puppy got along like cats and dogs and Ru finally got tired of the concubine whining. So she dropped some hints around about how she and Puppy were on the outs and how HORRIBLE it would be if something happened to her. I think she was dead like two RL weeks later. Maybe coincidental, but Ru took credit.

Ru ended up marrying into Oash, which was totally logical after the way she fucked Borsail over with the Senate thing (by lying to the one Borsail about what the other Borsail that Ru just HATED had failed to offer and playing off the Fale support of Oash like a last minute thing she had no control over). I had some RL health issues in my family and got really depressed. Ru wasn't really suited to Oash and I didn't have the mental energy to dig myself out of the hole I got in, so she stored to focus on the virtual babies she was making for Oash.

She was such a pretty little liar.  8)

Been well over a year so now I can be (only slightly) more detailed about Puppy's death. Only slightly because I never found out anything else.

She was on the balcony of Red's, just chillin out by herself, sitting on the bench. The curtain was closed. She'd been parked there for several minutes. I was alt-tabbing to check out a website at the time, back and forth every 10-20 seconds. I tabbed back to the game and noticed a hooded figure was attacking her.  By the time I had a chance to type "stand" it was all over. I never saw him show up, even though Puppy was sitting on the bench, which faced the balcony which he must have climbed up in order to reach her. I never had a chance to type "look figure." I checked back on the log, and there's absolutely nothing there. The guy wasn't there, then all of a sudden he was attacking her (or she?) and then she was dead.

Puppy was much loved by some, much loathed by others. I assumed it was a planned assassination, but it could just as easily have been a spontaneous PK by some random stranger who had just recently buffed up his climb skill.

I the player knew I wouldn't have been able to muster up even one tenth of her cunning. So instead I had my PC trust her way more than everyone advised they should and tell her things that they never should have told her in a million years. All the kudos to you, Ru.

Maristen.

Mmmm, no. He actually died of a severe coughing illness and passed relatively peacefully in the Kadian compound.

I'd enjoyed playing him tons, but after a few years I was burning out fast and was curious about new roles. I took pleasure in filling orders and didn't want to become absentee or not give people good service because I was losing drive, so I stepped aside so someone else could move up and have fun.

What a fool I was for not playing with Maristen and Macian more! Sadly, my PC was too busy being a crazy person and a pawn of nobles and templars.

Why must the killer have climbed up the balcony?

Because she closed the curtain when she got there. So he was either already there and hiding on an open balcony with no place to actually be hidden in broad daylight, or he climbed up after she got there, also in broad daylight with no way for someone to miss someone climbing over a balcony to stand right in front of them.  Though upon further thought, it could've been something magic.

Thanks guys, it makes me all happy thinking back to then and knowing you had fun too.

My character was intimidated by yours ICly, Large Hero, but he never forgot him and was grateful to have gotten hired (by all rights you probably were looking at me like I was a doofus or potential gicker when I said I liked playing with flowers). When Mari was given those blood-stained bands, it helped strengthen a core part of his personality in regards to care and respect for hunters that had been beat into him in the Byn. Even when he gained his ring, he kept Kor's armbands.

Those words recall almost halcyon times, sleepyhead.  :)

(winces) Must have sucked to tab back and see you were in a fight. I try to not tab so I can't see the screen unless I figure I'm with people I 'trust' or 'secure'. Otherwise, I shrink my web browser so it fits half the screen and overlay it over half the game client so I can see if the game starts scrolling and someone is talking to me or something starts happening.

My character liked Puppy, but didn't trust her at ALL. He was damn sure that he was outmatched by her when it came to scheming and plotting, so he made sure to keep things casual. Especially after one incident that involved an employee of his that had him second guessing himself. It was well done overall.

I loved Maristen. A sensitive soul. Glad I convinced him to leave the Byn (hah!) and join Kadius! My PC didn't help Maristen very much, but Mari had the best mentor you could ask for in Macian. What a fool I was for not playing with Maristen and Macian more! Sadly, my PC was too busy being a crazy person and a pawn of nobles and templars. Getting Way'd by Qoriya wasn't a comfortable experience, let me tell ya.

- Rulon K.

What was so uncomfortable about it? Once was about contest prizes and the other about making an arrangement to meet after he was transfered north. Maybe it was the timing that second time. Other people had far less comfortable conversations with the old lady over the Way, I assure  you.

I never saw him show up, even though Puppy was sitting on the bench, which faced the balcony which he must have climbed up in order to reach her. I never had a chance to type "look figure." I checked back on the log, and there's absolutely nothing there. The guy wasn't there, then all of a sudden he was attacking her (or she?) and then she was dead.

Why must the killer have climbed up the balcony?

Because she closed the curtain when she got there. So he was either already there and hiding on an open balcony with no place to actually be hidden in broad daylight, or he climbed up after she got there, also in broad daylight with no way for someone to miss someone climbing over a balcony to stand right in front of them.  Though upon further thought, it could've been something magic.


Or they could have shadowed her in, which in that environment I would imagine entails RPing staying a step or two behind, using the folds of the curtain to your advantage to stay unseen before slipping fully onto the kill side of the curtain.

Or they could have unlatched the curtain and snuck onto the balcony then latched it again.
Code: [Select]
emote unlatch curtain
sneak e
latch curtain
hem keeps back, partially shrouded in the folds of the curtain while watching ~puppy
kill puppy

Edit: Or like you added in your second post, it could have been magic.

Post by: Lizzie on June 16, 2017, 12:09:34 PM
Latch wasn't a command then. She also had max scan/listen, and theoretically, she would have seen anyone behind her, because she had to close the curtain - behind her.

I should emphasize - I had ZERO problem with her being assassinated. I was absolutely fine with it. I think the scene would've been more fun for me with some context (like an actual emote, or even a tell puppy "Hah, finally got ya!" not an hemote that I might have missed), something before the beep. Whoever did it, I have no "problem" with it at all. If I did, I would've filed a player complaint, and I didn't do that. So it's all good.
Title: Re: Whatever happened to...?
Post by: manipura on June 16, 2017, 12:54:08 PM
Latch wasn't a command then.

I'm pretty sure it was.  There's a GDB thread stating changes to latch/unlatch from May 2014 and I'm very sure she wasn't killed before 2014.
 
Omitted in my initial post and conveniently left disabled in the first push yesterday... mea culpa.

Delays are now applied to 'slip', 'palm', 'unlatch', and 'latch'.

As with most new features, I try to balance out positives with negatives so that players need to make choices.   Here's one in the interest of time vs. stealth. 

I hope that this will dissuade those folks who are aliasing their 'get', 'put', 'open', and 'close' commands to their stealthy equivalents from doing so.  I find this practice wrong for many reasons, but perhaps coded delays will make those folks think twice about what it really means is happening IC.

Hide and sneak is frustrating when you're the one not doing the hiding or sneaking.  But when you're the one not hiding or sneaking, you also have no idea of knowing whether the sneaky is hemoting and semoting the fuck out of the scene.  I've always thought the best assassins are the ones who go in and out without leaving a trace of who was there or what happened.  Just because your max scan didn't see them, doesn't mean they didn't hemote extensively or have a long conversation of thinks with themselves.
 
I don't really want to derail the thread any more than it already is, I just wanted to point out that this is one of those times when you can't really say "this happened, this didn't happen" because it was a sneaky scene, and you really don't know what happened on the other end of things.

If you are sitting down or otherwise preoccupied you will take a large negative to your perception (scan).

This is to reflect that you are not constantly moving about on high alert.

It's not his/her fault you weren't paying attention. For all they knew, you were preoccupied with Waying or something. A great time to strike.

Why not just assume the best of your fellow players and accept that you got a cool death people actually talked about?

Ratface caught him doing some stuff, that he assumed was enough that Wanderer put him in charge just so he would keep his mouth shut. Then all the people who did stuff, and helped Wanderer out, died off slowly, leaving Ratface almost nothing to work with and ICly (and OOCly) not know how to run any sort of crime syndicate.

This whole class of Kadian PCs were so much fun. Rulon, Siamaca, Maristen, and Macian. I was really disappointed that the role I was in at the time meant I couldn't interact with them as much as I wanted to.

Speaking of merchants who were around at that time, whatever happened to that port-wine stained Kuraci agent? I sadly cannot remember his name. Mr Gorbachev looking guy.

(grins) We'll bump into each other again sometime, maybe Refugee. That's the best part of this game. It's like meeting the same person as they reincarnate (even though they might came back really, really different). He left the game, I'm still wandering around in it. <3

(pokes Badskeelz and grins) Silly.

Maristen was head over heels for Lucith, but he didn't really go spreading it to keep things professional, though he didn't lie either. I was trying to go through my logs to see who introduced them, because I think it was Ellandris (moment of awe for that sharp-minded, red-haired Valkyrie who was NOT afraid to whip out a blade and fight). He was devastated when the man died and had limited interest in anyone else after.

My character wanted to stay pretty far from yours, Friday. He thought she was pretty unpredictable and potentially crazy. Those rare time we sat peacefully and she calmly spoke to him though, were wonderful. He thought she was very smart and wished he could speak on her level. I was grateful for those moments. Then we'd get back to.. is she going to unlock this door or am I going to have to climb out the window?  ;D

Hey, that's my headcanon! That no PCs ever really die, they just get reincarnated (when you create a char, that's your character's spirit inhabiting a former VNPC) ;)

LOL. I was kinda heated about that plant at the time. Like.. did that just happen? The only thing that would have shocked me more is if you'd have all picked up some furniture and walked out. Then it would have been.. "I just got robbed!" To be fair, though, the plant was settled and paid for afterward.

I've always remembered that afternoon when we were all tipsy and had convinced Ru that the key to the door was missing and for a moment she was convinced that she was trapped. It wasn't a panicky moment, just lazy and mellow as we sat and talked and she just matter of fact declared that we would be stuck in there forever.

Sheesh, I started a post and it turned into a tribute to everyone I've ever played with.
Just know that whoever you are, you've probably invested enough in your character that you've created someone that I have or that I hope I will get to meet. I've yet to meet anyone, new or otherwise, that I thought was a waste of time. Even that scary guy with the penis tattoos all over his body that chased one of my characters all over the grasslands... thanks.
Some of you I've wanted to play with many times and have at some point done so successfully. Some of you I bumped into on accident and got sucked right into your imagination (weird guy that lived under Nak and lived on mushrooms and moss). Nothing beats a text game, despite the difficulties of conveying some emotions, and even as far back as fifteen/twenty years ago, when some of us played Dark Moon Raiders, I've had some great interactions with people. Take time with the newbies, they have a lot of fresh ideas, and it's always interesting to see new things from people.

Was Maristen your first PC, WithSprinkles?

Yeah, he was.

With all the amazing stuff he made, for all the stuff he got rolled up in, and for as long as he lived, I thought sure there was a vet at the keys.

I've yet to really post in this thread, partially because there are so many awesome characters that I've encountered over the years, but I'm lucky enough to know how a lot of their stories end.  There are a few that stand out in my mind where that isn't the case.

1) Thadia the ex-Bynner.  In this case I know how the story ends, because I may have...helped...co-write that part.  It was essentially unavoidable due to IC circumstances, but it stuck out as one of the more regrettable PK's, mostly just due to the PC's composure in death. What I want to know is what happened to the character before that point that led to there!

2) Su, the dwarven merchant.  This PC sticks out as one of the most realistic, useful, and interesting Indie merchants in my mind.  Where did he end up?

3) Nijaal of the Sun Runners.  I always loved the bizarre messages I got from this elf when playing a merchant back in the day.  Where'd he go?

4) And Keriyah.  I don't want to know, because I can guess.  But I gotta know!

Where did Maristen get the idea for bloodball?
Title: Re: Whatever happened to...?
Post by: WithSprinkles on June 18, 2017, 11:18:52 AM
(smiles) Thanks, JDM. That means a lot from you. I was nervous talking to your character at first, but mine ended up being very fond of yours. I'm glad I got to make stuff for you!

Errr.. well, Barsook. If you remember from working with him, when Mari ran events, sometimes I liked to try and come up with random silly games. They didn't always work out how I imagined they would (lord knows), but people seemed to have fun? In all my craftings, I only saw one wooden ball object and thought that it would be cool if a ball were introduced to the game that was more versatile. I just never personally got around to it due to workload. It was my hope that a ball could be made that people could look at and think of more uses for, you know?

When one of my crafters was looking to make something in leather, the idea of a ball came up as we were speaking and we pitched ideas for the design. Chirys delivered in that aspect and while we were talking about the specifics, she, Zhaka and I brainstormed about a game to go with it.

As we were talking, I started to remember an Aztec game. It had a hard ball that had to be shot through hoops at either end of the field. I knew that a popular Zalanthan game should be properly brutal and bloody and that to get it off the ground, it might be a good idea to get it into the arena. Just the idea of having teams, sponsors and involving lots of people was very attractive and exciting. Something kinda dark made me think it would be fun to tie prisoners up and have them get pummeled to death for points as the goal. It was a rough outline, and as I laid out the notion, Zhaka, who was very good at coming up with names for things, dubbed it "Bloodball".

The House would have to profit to go along with the idea, so we thought of selling team tattoos, uniforms, masks, gear and all kinds of stuff provided by House Kadius to launch the sport and we proposed it to the houses. They loved it and wanted to make teams immediately.

It ended up being a little difficult to execute in practice, but thank you everyone who ran with it and tweaked the rules when it was obvious I knew NOTHING about coded combat (first character - Merchant). I'm happy it kept going a while! It was awesome seeing people enjoy the game and throw themselves into the frenzy of what ended up being.. I dunno? Zalanthan rugby? What would you even call that?

It is my hope that over time it will continue to get love and be everything we hoped for. Even if that game doesn't last though, that crafter made a great object. Be creative and come up with something else for it, folks!

I loved Maristen.

What a great and successful first character.  He and Ellandris had such a special relationship. Everyone assumed they were lovers, but they never were. 

This is a little log of his wonderful roleplay. This scene happened when Maristen's life was under threat by a Kadian. Ellandris took him into the Borsail estate and let him stay there for a little while to shelter him until she could sort out the problems.

Firmly, you close the curtain.

You say to the short, slender man, in sirihish:
     "Now they're all gossiping down there that I'm up here violating you."

The short, slender man laughs and presses a hand to his mouth.

With a rolling shrug, settling herself on the bench, you exclaim to the short, slender man, in sirihish:
     "Oh well!"

You sit on a small, black marble bench.

The short, slender man says, in sirihish:
     "Would that be so ba -- "

The short, slender man cuts himself off.

Blushing, the short, slender man says, in sirihish:
     "Apologies."

Waving to the seat beside her, quirking a brow at him, you say to the short, slender man, in sirihish:
     "Oh my. I think you just flirted with me."

The short, slender man sits on a small, black marble bench.

At your seat, you say in sirihish, her serious expression broken by a laugh:
     "That's adorable. I always thought you liked men best, though. I mean - that was the impression I got. I guess I could be wrong."

At your seat, the short, slender man says in sirihish, shyly:
     "It's not very proper for me to do so. I'm always very aware of your dignity."

At your seat, the short, slender man says in sirihish, continuing softly:
     "And I am fond of both men and women, I suppose. I just do not often speak up about what I want."

At your seat, you say in sirihish, leaning her back against the sun-warmed stones of the building, looking at the short, slender man, maybe a bit shyly:
     "I don't mind if you flirt. I think it's cute. And honestly, you are awfully pretty for a commoner."

The giant red sun sets over Allanak's west wall.

At your seat, the short, slender man says in sirihish, smiling with slightly flushed cheeks:
     "Thank you. It's never with disrespect. I have liked and respected you a long while."

At your seat, you say in sirihish, tucking a stray curl behind her ear as she looks at the short, slender man:
     "I've liked you for a long while, too. But I just never acted on it. I didn't want to complicate things for us."

The short, slender man glances out over the view with the setting sun and the fading light catches highlights in his dark hair as he turns back to smile at you.

At your seat, you say in sirihish, her own sun-browned cheeks flushing a bit as she looks at the short, slender man:
     "You make it difficult to be resolute, sometimes."

At your seat, the short, slender man says in sirihish:
     "I'm happy that you know. At least I was able to say this. And share it with you."

Feeling uneasy memories, you think:
     "I don't want things to be complicated."

At your seat, you say in sirihish, looking quickly down at her knees:
     "Once I loved a commoner boy. He was my age. And he played the lute so nicely, and had lovely golden curls."

The short, slender man tilts his head at you.

At your seat, you say in sirihish, her tone wryly honest, as she sneaks peeks at the short, slender man from time to time:
     "And then another noble hired him, and tried to use him as a political lever against me, and he got scared, and ran away to the labyrinth and was killed."

At your seat, you say in sirihish, leaning her head back against the wall:
     "I was a wreck about it. If something like that happened to you, I would feel even worse."

At your seat, you say in sirihish, reaching out a hand to tuck a lock of the short, slender man's hair behind his ear:
     "This Axhimas thing is making me think it's all my fault, somehow, if I didn't like you so much, this wouldn't have happened."

You feel the troubled sensation of guilt that powerful people feel when their lives warp the very balance of reality around them.

You think:
     "And normally you don't see it. But then one day you notice it."

At your seat, the short, slender man says in sirihish, quietly:
     "Oh.. I see. It's horrible you had to go through that and that it is a reality of the world we live in. Lady Consul, I will tell you something I was told when I loved someone once before.."

At your seat, the short, slender man says in sirihish:
     "It hurts to hear and I was so mad at him when he said it but.. Someday, I might die. I know, being the strong smart woman you are, you know that. "

At your seat, the short, slender man says in sirihish:
     "If and when that happens, I will be happy knowing that I told you. And I feel wonderful knowing you think of me as yours."

The short, slender man winks.

Feeling your heart melt, you think:
     "Awww."

At your seat, you say in sirihish, her expression shifting to display a delighted sweetness at the short, slender man's words:
     "You're such a dear."

You think:
     "Oh, I will cry if Axhimas kills him! I'll cry and then I'll MURDER HER."

Macian was the best. She was very meticulous and methodical in her crafts and watching her with the other crafters, seeing how people flocked to her for quiet assurance in the Hall was a pleasant constant.

I keep seeing LauraMars logs and I want to get as good as that at THINKS and FEELS. Playing with you was great because you were so expressive, it made me want to figure out how to do it too. Ellandris was just incredibly wonderful and I'm glad I got to play alongside her a while.

There was that one aide years ago that drank agvat and kumiss with us that one time, I think. He was influential (as I recall it) and people were really wary of him. I remember that one of us stumbled and he went down on one knee to examine the street more closely. I didn't get why he did it then, but of course he did it to alleviate embarrassment over the fall. I think that was the same guy, anyway. Forget his name. I was regretful when he was presumably murdered.

My PP was aiming for Left Hand, coordinating all sorts of shady shit and had intentions to lead a "reacquisition team", but I ended up storing because I got a sponsored role.

I will forever miss you, handsome pickpocket whose name I don't even remember.

edit: And that time Omar's scripts client-side had him suddenly emote something pretty scary and magickal, and he had to OOC "please disregard that, I still have old scripts set up".

I still wonder if he was magickal, or if it WAS just a script, but I laughed OOCly and let it go because it definitely wasn't a coded effect.

I actually picked up a mannerism IRL from Murdle that I use all the time.

Whenever my cat comes into the room I look at him and go, "Hellows!"

Murderous Murdle. If I remember right, I think he was ordered to dispatch a mekillot or something, but I'm obviously not 100% on that. One of the scariest and fun Byn Sarges I ever had!

I was playing a stump Legionnaire at the time.  Murdle came into Tuluk and attacked the NPC guard outside the Sanctuary.  Or maybe it was an NPC templar there, I don't remember.  Anyway, NPCs and PCs alike cut him down.  I got in the killing blow.  I thought it was sort of poignant since my earlier PC, Sergeant Niall, had been so close with Murdle.

Though I ranked Wisdom lowest at chargen, he ended up having the highest wisdom ranking of any PC I've ever had (above average).  So I figured he needed to be played uniquely.

The IC story is that he was transferred back to Yaroch.

That's what happened.  He and Alme even had a fantastic little scene where Alme brought him a new erdlu (Ruby!) and said goodbye to him in Yaroch. Tears were shed (by me).

OOC, I stored (nobody made me) because I didn't know where else to take the character. I felt he had been backed into a corner by events.  Balthazar was a ruined man, politically speaking. His continued activity in Allanak would have jeopardized Alisima's career, and he'd always promised her that he'd never get in her way. I'll admit I was also a little fatigued and demoralized by my interactions with clan staff at the time. So, I was happy to call an end to the tale for all these reasons.

No regrets, other than the fact that players didn't kill him.

Since this is past a year...

I figured you did...what sucked is he was blinded...if he hadn't been blinded, he would have killed all the kryl (I think there were three).  I have to say, you two deserved to die, you were being greedy.  Wanderer did not.

I was stunned when he died.  He was pretty much maxxed and absolutely awesome.  Then of course, a month later, they added more to his "type" of character (or perhaps I'm remembering wrong).

I've had some pretty memorable characters in my long, long time on Arm.  Can't even remember them all, Lawrence, Othes, Brethel, Dealer, Russ, Dune, but he might have been my favourite.  Almost 25 years of characters.

From being in the Byn and being a pain in the ass, to manifesting years later.  His jealousy of his rinthi love, who was pretending not to be rinthi, betrayal of that group (you all know who you are *cough* Kankfly *cough*), killing that Hostess in broad daylight for a certain House and the flight, the play of the Templars with his guild persona, the development of that small group,  all up to those three kryl, we had really bad luck there.  Just before we had the gith in our heads too.  That group could have done some damage.

I love letting characters build their own history, and he definitely did.  Did he fokin ever!

Man he was fun.  Too fun, was hard to get into the flow again.

Sorry he left Ratface in a bad position, he really had no choice.  It really seems to be a trend in the Guild.  Wanderer was pretty much left in charge because Blue's player had a hiatus.  Love playing in the Guild, but its hard sometimes to get continuation because people die off so much.

In all honestly what did happen to Sera? Last I remember was dropping them off in Morin's.

Wow, I'm flattered anyone mentioned her!

Sera went on past her Allanaki days to live a fairly safe, quiet life of chitchatting, lounging in Luir's for a good while before retiring (being stored) to live on in an even safer, quieter life back in Morin's, hoping to find another logger to have a family with. Her VNPC (grand?)children are probably populating Morin's even now.

I could have played with her into her later years probably, but she had calmed down and adventured much less while at the same time I had much less time to play her. I never really pictured her doing dangerous things into her later years if she didn't have to, and she'd gotten to a point where she didn't.

Aside from some interesting affairs her life wasn't especially remarkable, but she was a real commoner with real commoner, regular-sane-people ways that only wanted to get by to smile and enjoy the next day. So she avoided trouble and danger every chance she got.

That's maybe not what most people play Armageddon for, but I liked what she brought to the world anyway.

whatever happened to tithian's bathtub

lol, this sounds like a story worth telling.

Time to tell the story.

Lord Usurer Tithian Kassigarh, who was totally beloved and definitely not despised by anyone, received a giant marble bathtub as a gift from Raleris Winrothol. Tithian, being really disgustingly rich, already had one of the nicest bathrooms in Tuluk and did not need a giant marble bathtub.

Because Faithful Lord Yasir Lyksae was generally furious with Tithian at any given time for slights real or perceived, Tithian had the (very large and heavy) tub delivered to Yasir. This of course mad Yasir very mad. Almost as mad as the time Tithian sent him a pair of fine silk pantaloons.

If memory serves, Yasir had the tub deposited back in the courtyard of the Kassigarh estate, only for Tithian to gift the tub to Yasir a second time at some point near the end of playable Tuluk.

Tithian had a habit of giving his enemies very expensive gifts in the hopes that it would win some of them over, and make the others feel maybe a tinge guilty for obstructing him.

Post by: bcw81 on September 16, 2017, 05:40:33 PM
Woah woah woah there buddy. Tithian never gave Yasir 'pantaloons', he gave Yasir 'knickerbockers'. There's a very subtle difference there. You see, knickerbockers are for the poor people and Yasir loved himself some free-flowing kilt/pteryges action anyways, so despite being silk it was taken as a slight.

Onto the bathtub, Yasir had no need for a new bathtub because his tiny templar apartment was already too full - and adding another bathtub to the seven bathing rooms I had seemed like a task of boredom. Plus, I would have had to murder a perfectly good half giant once they'd come into the Pyramid to drop off the tub - and who wants that? Besides the logistics, there was also the oddity of GIFTING A GODDAMN BATHTUB.

Yasir thought Tithian had poisoned it due to their previously ultra friendly relationship, and Tithian's malcontent ways.

She was definitely banging important people. A Borsail Lord, an Allanaki Templar, and a Kadian Agent were among her "important-and-banged" list.

This romance thing made me think of this female assassin that I was trying to entwine in a romantic partnership with a character who later ended up leading the guild.  She betrayed me like three times. It was so weird

First she snitched me out. When I enterer her apartment, she had a templar waiting for me behind a closed curtain. I walk into the apartment, neighbouring rooms curtain is closed. I quickly steal her apartment key, tug the curtain open, there is a templar behind it. I open the door and bolt.

Somehow I forgive that. Talked the templar off my back. Second time. In her apartment, I am teaching her cures and poisons. I give her terradin and she asks me if I got cures to terradin yet. I say no. She stabs me with it :).

I forgive that too after KOing her, but geas her to watch, track, and gather info on a Kuraci agent, in preparation for an assassination.

She gives up the plan to assassinate her to that Agent.

Romance is a powerful thing. I ended up suffering 3 betrayals from the same person, just because I had the hots for her and had a desire for a stealth/crime based romance plot.

I'm curious what happened to that character to this day. She dissapeared  at some point. I looked for her. Dont remember if I missed her, or just wanted to kill her.

Sounds about right!

Tithian was an experiment in bringing a shady ostentatious crime boss concept to Tuluk. It proved to be harder in execution when new... ahem... debt collectors would be hired, receive their uniform, and then disappear or die immediately.

Fun fact: Tithian's employees were all issued letters of marque that were supposed to function as a get-out-of-jail-free-or-at-a-discount card if they were somehow jailed in the course of fulfilling debt recovery duties. Sometimes, they might even work, depending on the Templar that jails you!

I played Axhimas. She -hated- Maristen.  She and cohorts were furious when she was cock blocked by the family and her murderous plans were foiled. Good times!

(laughs) I'd wondered who was behind the screen on that one. Glad to see it was yet another vet and I'm glad I got to play with you!

It isn't -quite- how your character might have perceived it, though. It only went down that way because Maristen, though angry and shocked, didn't hate Axhimas (though he didn't like her much either) and didn't want her to die. Since he felt that way and wanted the two of them to somehow coexist, her plans were outed and she didn't end up face down in the street. The option was on the table then, but afterwards, not again as we both know. That knife literally cut both ways.

My PC loved Maristen and tried to kill him anyway.
He got promoted and became autonomous. This ran counter to my PCs more fuedal outlook on life. She felt  (rightly or not) that she'd been a king maker, but she wasn't getting the collaboration, or information she thought she deserved. My PC was very disappointed in Maristen. I the player thought he was amazing and i'm a Mari fan.

Oh my gosh!

You just made me gasp aloud and burst into tears and laugh happily all at the same time.  Thank you so much for being so amazing. Ah.. the memories and the bios. Never as many as a person wants to write, unfortunately.

That PUSH into adulthood that the both of you gave my character was very disorienting and immersive. It actually changed the way I approached the game as a player over time, helping to take me a bit out of 'care bear' mode and into the mindset of 'Murder, Corruption, Betrayal'. I can't say that I'm perfect even now, but I appreciate that kick out of the 'nest' so to speak. Mari would have never lasted without grief, betrayal and anger tempering the more gentle aspects of his personality. Funnily enough, if it hadn't been for this event in his life, he might not have been family at all because he'd have likely remained too soft to have survived.

Two things:

Barzalene - My favorite memory was laughing with you, drunk off our asses in the gardens in Tuluk with one of the hunters. All of us trying to make our way back the the compound and almost failing miserably as we kept falling into the flowers.

ShaLeah - The one memory that stands out is trying so hard to suppress laughter and almost clinging to one another as it slipped out uncontrolled anyway after one social event ended in that 'grand announcement'.

Things like what? Banging?  It's human nature. Might as well get annoyed at people who get bored with people who never do anything, except spar.

Not to derail with my angst musings, but I've seen a direct correlation in propensity for mudsex and "people who never do anything".

I'm going to jump in to this discussion.

I once played a character that people perceived as "never doing anything" and she also had a lot of mudsex (a lot of it faded) as her profession was a rinth prostitute.

She also got more than a dozen people killed via rp, and knowing how to cry on demand to the right people.

Her name was Mouse, and she died because I forgot to change her outfit in the rinth.

edit to add: she also sexed a zombie with twice the normal amount, and was involved with all sorts of crazy stuff

Anouther time, a guy in the rinth refused to pay her, so she sat in the folley until quick came in.

She burst into tears and not ten minutes later Quick walked back into the tavern with the guys dead body.

Then he gave her a present, It was a fan or something silly like that.

If I remember correctly, Tor closed and they were conscripted into the militia. The last of them was declared a traitor and executed in the arena some time later. It was a strange time. I miss the Tor Academy, had some great RP there, and nothing says badass like being an Academy Graduate.

Meso was the dwarf declared a traitor and executed, but he was not the last. There's actually a log submitted about that event: https://gdb.armageddon.org/index.php/topic,47850.0.html

The actual  last of them, Shrinty, rose to the rank of corporal in the Arm of the Dragon. She was killed in action against tarantulas in Descending Sun, In the Year of Lirathu’s Agitation, year 77 of the 21st Age.

Unless Shrinty isn't counted as the three. I remember her talking about three brothers who might be the "Real" three unstoppable Tor dwarves.

Kalaski was AWESOME! My PC at the time(Ita) thought of him as a father figure and after her died she named her beetle Kalaski. I'll let the player say what happened as the truth was kept hush hush IG, though that was back at the beginning of 2011, so I -think- we're good now. :-D

Were you along when my Arabeti teamed up with a pack of Soh to chase down what we thought was a witch on the Pah, but it turned out was just an afk mul in a cave?  I'd tracked it for a couple IG days to this cave, and we mustered a small army, me with my little Arabet and an entire warband of stinking Soh.  We wait outside waying each other since we couldn't actually talk to each other due to language barriers, then I finally opened up the cave, heart pounding, and we all charge in with a cacophonous roar of Kahs and Sweet Breezes!  ... We stared at the afk mul for a good 5 minutes, beeped it, looked at each other sheepishly, and went our separate ways.

Also, I really suck at finding ways to get involved in cool sekrit stuff(tm). And when I do, the key PC responsible dies or stores the next day. Or gets stored. I STILL MISS THAT PESKY WHIRAN GWOSHI DANGNABIT!

Oh, and guess what, I had a rather interesting and competent character all the cool gypsies at the time want to roleplay with. Character dies. I make a character all the cool gypsies at the time want to kill. I store that character because my gypo app got approved. And guess what, the cool gypsies who are still playing hate my guts and my new PC gypo gets excluded from all the cool stuff.

Dakota,
pss: what happened to Corporal Hardass? He was later a Sarge in the Legion. Drazen's nemisis in the early days whose hobby was shoving punch daggers into his face during botched hits. Never bothered to remember the PC's name b/c he was just the unbribable "Corporal Hardass."

His name was Corporal Jargon, I played Juk the Legion Assassin, Private who worshiped Jargon.  This was during the time of the Faithful Lords Aon, Yasir and Theron.

Juk always thought Jargon was a serial killer, who targeted women, who he would bring into his apartment.  They would always go in, but never come out, nor be seen again.

Riev -
On another note, what happened to the Byn Sergeant Rush? I played Trooper Ghral.

How about Byn Sergeant Tor?
Title: Re: Whatever happened to...?
Post by: Riev on March 08, 2018, 04:30:11 PM
Rush, despite about 4000 coins of "please give us work this totally isn't a bribe", was considered an enemy of the state for paying off a very notable band of Raiders to not target his Troopers/Mercenaries if out on a contract. He was seen as aiding the enemy, and was put to the Cuddler.

After a riot started over the situation, Rush was still "follow"ing the Templar in charge and actually was RELEASED from the Cuddler, and could have escaped. I decided, as a player, that there's no way I was mystically detached from the strapped-in machine, so I went back out there and changed my ldesc to still being there. Then I was killed.

Whatever happened to Jarls?

He was a long time ago, but some of you are mentioning characters that were around before I was alive.

He was a dark-haired human assassin, as far as I could tell, who seemed to enjoy trying to kill certain people. The only criteria he seemed to care about was great skill in a fight or a lot of power. He loved killing him some of those sorts of guys. I was in the stands at the Arena in the room where he tried to kill a Salaari agent. I remember that. We had actually been talking about him a few moments prior, and how he'd killed this very capable half-gith a short while back.

He had blue scales and seemed from the beginning to have gith strength, but he could have just been a warrior guild or something.

I don't remember much about anyone from that period of time. He was easy to get along with, although I wasn't that close with him. I think he was Byn, and earned a reputation for being the guy to beat.

I am not sure how Jarls ended but I do want to state that the entire time he was wanted in Allanak and everybody assumed he'd fled to Red Storm or Luir's he was living in Kolo's closet. He was in Allanak the entire time.

Kolo did odd jobs for him back when she was a kid before he was well known as a super murderer. So naturally once he became a wanted super murderer she was excited to have the chance to pay him back by hiding him from the law. They used to have long ruminations about life and the universe while he hid under her furniture.

Additionally, he badmouthed the Order of Lirathu to Lyvren the Blue, and associated with magickers in his capacity as a Kuraci. Not a healthy thing to do when you're a Tuluki.
Lyvren and Qoriya's minor friendship was the best thing ever.

Also the time I held your stolen hammer namesake to ransom. I really hope that tea was poisoned ;)


It certainly was the best thing ever. It was disappointing neither of us got to Luir's that time, to meet up.

Man, Pip and Henn were awesome.  Great played characters and always a joy to be around.  What happened to the 3 Tor dwarves that were completely unstoppable?  I can't remember their names for the life of me, but they were pretty amazing.  I think it was around 2010 time frame.
Three shortstops without a period between them. Meso was one, I remember his auto-firing emote parry trigger. Loved that guy.

Hai!  I was Wind.  I remember that elf and your partner in crime, Dust Cloud or something. 

Were you along when my Arabeti teamed up with a pack of Soh to chase down what we thought was a witch on the Pah, but it turned out was just an afk mul in a cave?  I'd tracked it for a couple IG days to this cave, and we mustered a small army, me with my little Arabet and an entire warband of stinking Soh.  We wait outside waying each other since we couldn't actually talk to each other due to language barriers, then I finally opened up the cave, heart pounding, and we all charge in with a cacophonous roar of Kahs and Sweet Breezes!  ... We stared at the afk mul for a good 5 minutes, beeped it, looked at each other sheepishly, and went our separate ways.

There is a sorcerer spell called 'Disguise'. It makes you appear as a different species entirely, but at the cost of making you afk for 30 minutes. That defiler fooled all of you!

Whatever happened to Holten Irofel? And Methyas Groot?

Holten opened a very, very, very trapped bag and blew himself up.

LauraMars is correct - Methyas was indeed summoned by a magicker while out on a hunt and slowly killed. It’s been 13 years and I’m still dying to know who was responsible.

What happened to Val (short for Valerosa, I believe) from way back in 1995? She was the grey-eyed swordswoman, I believe, of House Kurac but she left after a dispute with the gypsies. I always wished I could play a character as well as her player did with that one.

Speaking of Balthazar and Alme...

When we went down on that sewer mission and Cona died. Balls Hazard, inflicted with loosetongue, shouted: It is that I wish this one is dead instead of Cona!

In front of Alme.

You send a telepathic message to the scarred, dark-haired man:
     "You're Baal'hazred, yes? Balls. You know me. You wanted me to die, on the trip to the sewers. If you don't remember. No hard feelings, though! I'm Alme. How can I help?"

...

At your seat, you say in sirihish:
     "Cona had a good mind on her. Bright and winsome. She was kind to me. Quen, also. We weren't close friends - I have no friends, you see - but I wish they weren't gone."

Whatever happened to the elf named Falk? I played Ashier/Ash (that nickname was a nightmare, in terms of people accidentally waying me), and she was one of the first two characters I ever met on arma.

I was such a cute newbie, making friends with all the elves and half-elves like speciesm wasn't even a thing. <:

(smiles) Thanks, JDM. That means a lot from you. I was nervous talking to your character at first, but mine ended up being very fond of yours. I'm glad I got to make stuff for you!

Errr.. well, Barsook. If you remember from working with him, when Mari ran events, sometimes I liked to try and come up with random silly games. They didn't always work out how I imagined they would (lord knows), but people seemed to have fun? In all my craftings, I only saw one wooden ball object and thought that it would be cool if a ball were introduced to the game that was more versatile. I just never personally got around to it due to workload. It was my hope that a ball could be made that people could look at and think of more uses for, you know?

When one of my crafters was looking to make something in leather, the idea of a ball came up as we were speaking and we pitched ideas for the design. Chirys delivered in that aspect and while we were talking about the specifics, she, Zhaka and I brainstormed about a game to go with it.

As we were talking, I started to remember an Aztec game. It had a hard ball that had to be shot through hoops at either end of the field. I knew that a popular Zalanthan game should be properly brutal and bloody and that to get it off the ground, it might be a good idea to get it into the arena. Just the idea of having teams, sponsors and involving lots of people was very attractive and exciting. Something kinda dark made me think it would be fun to tie prisoners up and have them get pummeled to death for points as the goal. It was a rough outline, and as I laid out the notion, Zhaka, who was very good at coming up with names for things, dubbed it "Bloodball".

The House would have to profit to go along with the idea, so we thought of selling team tattoos, uniforms, masks, gear and all kinds of stuff provided by House Kadius to launch the sport and we proposed it to the houses. They loved it and wanted to make teams immediately.

It ended up being a little difficult to execute in practice, but thank you everyone who ran with it and tweaked the rules when it was obvious I knew NOTHING about coded combat (first character - Merchant). I'm happy it kept going a while! It was awesome seeing people enjoy the game and throw themselves into the frenzy of what ended up being.. I dunno? Zalanthan rugby? What would you even call that?

It is my hope that over time it will continue to get love and be everything we hoped for. Even if that game doesn't last though, that crafter made a great object. Be creative and come up with something else for it, folks!


Maristen was my character Sander-da Kuracs best friend :)

Oh dear, I remember an overly friendly PC, might have been an Ash, iirc (she seemed to turn up EVERYWHERE for a while, even the rinth). Did you ever convince a crazed, murderous, star-handed elf in Luir's to try haggling down the price of a skirt a Tan Muark was trying to sell? If so, doing that pissed off the Muarki, who then bribed the Fist to murder my elf, my elf then stalled them in the cell long enough for a Lady Templar to way the Sergeant "HANDS OFF THE ELF!!!", which, had him so confused he settled for just kicking my elf out of the outpost for a year. That was wild.

EDIT: It's complicated by the fact that I've run into like, a dozen Ash PCs, so, the chances are kind of slim.

Nope, sorry! Though I kind of wish that was me, that all sounds crazy. :D

It's amusing that that name choice is haunting me an entire year later.

Some extra info, seeing as there are so many damn Ash's: my Ashier was a Byn Runner. He died on a patrol when someone said "Wow there are like a million spiders down there, whatever you do, don't go south." and I managed to typo "l s" to "; s" and instantly die. He met Falk when she tried to pick his pocket and failed, then Wayed him about how she was trying to put a toy soldier into his pocket, which he actually believed, because of course he did. Later there was some stuff about Falk helping him to pay the sergeant back for a beetle he lost (because I didn't know how to rent it) by stealing a mount ticket for him.

Ashier was my first character and I think I made every single newbie mistake possible. :p It was a cringey time.

Also, same character, whatever happened to the little girl that Markus had adopted, I think I called her Pearl but she called herself Killa, much to Markus' dismay? Markus made a special Templar's Heart soap just for her in an attempt to get her to at least try and stay clean. I don't think she ever did. She did however draw a lot of dicks on my walls.

The russet-haired girl or something.
Hahahaha! I taught her to draw dicks on things as Drov.
We drew dicks on so many things.

... or maybe she taught me. xD

Yup that was her.

A little late, but that was me. Markus called her Jade, but she much preferred Killa because it was a terribly fierce name in her mind. She was my first and last breed, but one of my most fondly-recalled characters of all time, primarily because of how weirdly fun it was to play an angsty bundle of hate and the dynamics between her, Drov, Markus, and the TUFF HIDES group they were all a part of.

She ended up dying on a pretty unfortunate hunting accident trip with Markus, if I recall correctly, but Drov was definitely the one who taught her to draw dicks on everything. Man, that was such a fun time and really hooked me to this game. I love you guys! I've always wondered what happened to those characters as well.

I think that was Valeric (GDB handle) She played very well thought out characters but left some years back to pursue another mud. Not sure if she ever came back?

Still was pretty cool. He was stealthy, AND you could talk to him at the bar. A lot of roguish types end up sort of just vanishing in between jobs, or pretending to be something they're not.

I remember being an elf or two and he would be there, a reliable oasis of elf rp in a vast as shit desert of humanity. The first time it wasn't so bad 'cause there were like three other elves besides us, who moved between Allanak and Storm and Luir's, to where the money was at. I think the authorities left us alone because we were either paying them off or not strictly bothering anyone they cared about--- I wasn't around at peaktime enough to learn which it was. I made one of the girls a special tho fruitcake which is still creatable by unclanned people, although I'd have to look in my documents to see how to make it. I think they were hunters and grebbers for hire, although they showed the signs of knowing more unsavory ways to make money, like any good elves would.

Hey you, elf woman I made a tho fruitcake for, how did you kick the bucket? We were in a loosely-knit group of elves with Still (not a breed in sight, bravo!) and I think we all ended up either storing or dying--- well, I stored, anyway. I just assumed the rest of you died to those nasty, greedy humans because they just go berserk over the loss of a black pearl ring, don't they--- even though they could literally make another one without stepping out of their apartments and they wouldn't be able to drop it in the room. Man, we should have really taught them a far more valuable lesson than I assume you guys were teaching them when I wasn't around.
