Hey, so it's a discussion, where we can... have a discussion. The thread's up with one of those "everyone can say hello to each other" setups that are so popular nowadays.

Ye Rules of the RP:
  • Don't be a dick (out of character)

Okay, now that that's out of the way, I would like my motto to be "Sure, Why Not?". If you think something would be really cool to have happen in the story, just post it here or PM me and either I'll handle the needed NPCs or you will or we'll figure something out. The only reason you can't just outright do it, despite me more than likely saying yes, is just so that we don't have eight of the "really cool things" happening at the same time. I mean, I'm more of a referee than anything else. I'll move the plot along if you folks can't think of anything you want to do, but for the most part, it'll be pretty open after the first few posts.

Some "hidden" background for Yorth Redbeard: He's married and has two children. It was an Arranged Marriage for business purposes—they don't love each other, but can tolerate each other well enough for short periods. He sends letters home via one of his items—sometimes he gets letters back.

Regarding your post, Daltar, I'm pretty sure you meant to say "decline", not "decadence". They kind of mean near-opposite things. tongue

Hello, Luthen here!
SKJAM: I figured that might be the case. But Felix's branch of the family is somewhat minor. So any knowledge of their trading partners would be via osmosis. His branch is more crew and the occasional navigator, rather than captains and dealers.

Also, I'm about to go on music camp for the weekend, so just have Felix follow along. Or something.
You must agree, my plan is sheer elegance in its simplicity! Tumblr

We're going to need some background information on Engate's Keep and Core Gems. For a centuries-old lich who's supposed to know Rylaath like the back of his hand, Roland isn't exactly pulling his weight as a master of lore.tongue

[up]Oh, sorry, I meant to put a footnote. Roughly speaking, it would be a gem used to to control a magical system, like a barrier or what have you. If the entire system were a computer, the gem would be like the central processor.

IŽd suggest him bursting through the door, apologizing for being late as there were some complications with the operation or something of the like and then someone would explain what to do to him.

...Come to think of it, I think Roland and Mak'karath are going to get along very well. The old folks are going to have quite a bit of fun at the party's expense.evil grin

More on-topic: How much leeway do we get for purposes of universe-building? Of course we'll try not to touch anything plot-relevant, but are we permitted to make up bits of history / geography for flavour?

Might want to edit your post, Pyrite. Pretty sure I indicated Jian Yu is paying attention to the kobold now.

[up][up]I'm fine with you creating towns or smalls cities or minor characters to your heart's content. Like when you signed up, you made up Most Holy Order of St. Gregor, and Totemic created the Sun Empire, and Moerin just invented a "neighboring kingdom"; those are all a-okay in my book, since they create... something... that makes the character have more depth, but at the same time is ambiguous enough that we can merge them together into some sort of coherent setting without having to retcon a ton of stuff.

Just make sure that whatever you make up out of the blue is populated by "normal" races (pretty much any flesh-and-blood race that people created in the signup is good) and not, say, a goblin city, but you probably weren't going to do that anyway.

Oh, and you can assume that the kingdom has an ocean on the east and north-east borders, a few neighboring countries to the south, a marsh somewhere on that southern border, a pretty big lake somewhere, a big forest in the north-west, and a big desert way out past the south-west border where a bunch of semi-lawful border cities lie. That should give us a good bit of leeway with whatever you want.

[up][up]I noted that. I don't think your conversation necessarily precludes Roland nearly tripping over the kobold, but I'll change the wording a little.

I was referring more to the second paragraph, where you said Jian Yu was staring at Roland. But hey, whatever works. tongue

Ah, that part. Unfortunately, due to the constraints of time zones, just assume that the first two paragraphs of my post start before your comment on the antagonistic members, the third after nman's statement on exploring the town, and the last two after the kobold starts ranting.

I'd rather we not get into the habit of having posts in an Anachronic Order. Trust me, it will get really confusing later on. Let's try to keep things sequential, time-wise.

I understand where you're coming from, and I'll try my best. But if my guess is correct, I'm on the other side of the world from most of you - so could I request a little leeway on that issue? Otherwise, my character is going to be perpetually one step (or a few) behind the others in terms of conversation.
