    How about...

    faespeak (Elfen)
    • You speak softly and reverently to the fae spirits beyond mortal comprehension, smiling contentedly as you catch fragments of their sing-song answer.
    • Elryn speaks softly and reverently to the empty air beside him, smiling contentedly at some response only he can hear.
    • Elryn speaks softly in a lilting voice while looking just over your shoulder, as if talking intently to a figment who exists only in his mind.
    • You speak softly in a lilting voice, imploring the hidden fae spirits to guide Elryn in the service of the natural world.

    Does this mean faeling will get it too?

    "Fairwinds" by Irillia Shevat.

    Second place:
    "Airsit" by Irillia Shevat.

    Third place:
    "Sparkgaze" by Synbios Gordian.

    Congratulations to Dean Irillia and Aeromage Synbios for their winning entries. Prizes will be distributed via mail. The winning entries have been detailed at the bottom of this post for your perusal. 

    In service,
    Provost Zyphora Windwhisper


    ------------


    FAIRWINDS
    o With a sweep of your hand, you call upon the four winds and cause temperate, fair zephyrs from the north, south, east, and west to flow through the vicinity. 
    o PersonA sweeps her hand through the air, causing temperate, fair winds to sweep in from the north, south, east, and west and to flow airily through the vicinity. 
    o With a sweep of your hand, you call upon the four winds to surround PersonB in temperate, airy zephyrs and intone benignly, "Fair winds and clear skies go with you." 
    o Temperate, airy zephyrs rush in from the north, south, east, and west to surround you as PersonA sweeps her hand through the air and intones benignly, "Fair winds and clear skies go with you." 
    o PersonA sweeps her hand through the air, causing temperate, airy zephyrs from the north, south, east, and west to surround PersonB in a column of air, and intones, "Fair winds and clear skies go with you." 

    AIRSIT
    o You gesture lightly in the air, and a swirling column of wind forms around your feet and lifts you a short distance above the ground, allowing you to seat yourself comfortably in mid-air. 
    o With a gesture, PersonA causes a swirling column of wind to form around her feet and lift her a short distance above the ground, where she seats herself comfortably in mid-air. 
    o You gesture lightly in the air, and a swirling column of wind forms around your feet and lifts you a short distance above the ground. Turning to face PersonB, you seat yourself comfortably in mid-air. 
    o With a gesture, PersonA causes a swirling column of wind to form around her feet and lift her a short distance above the ground. Turning to face you, she seats herself comfortably in mid-air. 
    o With a gesture, PersonA causes a swirling column of wind to form around her feet and lift her a short distance above the ground. Turning to face PersonB, she seats herself comfortably in mid-air. 

    SPARKGAZE
    o You allow sparks of lightning to course through your body as you glance around you with a calculating gaze. 
    o The faint scent of ozone fills the air as lightning surrounds PersonA, as he gazes calculatingly about him. 
    o You fix PersonB with a calculating gaze, as sparks of lightning bleed out of your eyes. 
    o PersonA fixes you with a calculating gaze, as sparks of lightning bleed out of his eyes. 
    o PersonA fixes PersonB with a calculating gaze, as sparks of lightning bleed out of his eyes.

    And She touched the Architect's heart, a place that no other had claimed with their artistry."

    It is only a little pressure on the understood boundaries of yourself."

    Tangential, but are emotes as a concept IC? I like the idea of a contest but it feels like that would be OOC?

    There are some things you can't avoid, or otherwise they would never be able to be done and a few Guild additions categories fall into this.

    Avurekhos says, "Dylara's a PvP menace in my eyes, totes rekting face."

    The eye of Dylara materialises in your hands and flings itself around your neck, tightening incomprehensibly until it is irremovable.
    Perfectly clean, this eyeball has been wrenched from the socket of Dylara. It has been animated by some unusual force, constantly looking around itself as if in shock or fear. It is bathed in a light covering of white flames that roll endlessly over its surface. A single chain of empyreal metal pierces either side of the eye, allowing it to be worn around the neck.

    re: @Elryn's -woods emotes, I feel as if loomshade is a bit too much like gloomshadow...
    1:  Stretching your branches, you cast a gloomy shadow over your surroundings.
    3:  Stretching $(his$) branches, $(name$) casts a gloomy shadow over $(his$) 
    surroundings.
    1t: Stretching your branches, you cast a gloomy shadow over $(lname$).
    2t: Stretching $(his$) branches, $(name$) casts a gloomy shadow over you.
    3t: Stretching $(his$) branches, $(name$) casts a gloomy shadow over $(lname$).
    Pose: $+(name$) stretches here, casting a gloomy shadow with $(his$) branches.
    TPose: $+(name$) stretches here, casting a gloomy shadow over $(lname$) with 
    $(his$) branches.
    Regarding the other two, dapplelight is possible, but I would like it to be accompanied by another Wyrdenwood emote too. Takeroot will have to be two separate emotes (but alike in form) because, at this present time, we cannot have emotes be shared between two races; so, it will most likely turn into something like wilderoot and wyrdroot

    We will add faespeak to our list of currently debated emotes (i.e. @Orventa's elfmotes and allure). 

    ---

    Regarding guild emotes (a la the Aeromancers example), we only add those sort of emotes upon request of the guild patron, and after they have vetted the emote a bit with the guild leaders. Given that you guys did an emote contest, I am certain we will eventually see the fruits of that soon!

    Can it not be the same emote name? I know tailwag has different effects for races that have them.
  • DaraiusDaraius Shevat The juror's taco spotMember Posts: 4,301 Transcendent
    Is tailwag shared? Lobos have wag and aslarans have tailtwitch.
  • AnitaAnita Member Posts: 556 Mythical
    wag itself only works if you're a race with a tail, too.

    Nah, I was thinking along the lines that Elfen drew out the Fae, so they probably have that kind of weirdness that means they see/hear things others don't. Faelings are part-fae already... So they don't really need the same sense. I'd probably suggest they emote something that evokes their internal faerie nature (well, dark/evil faerie now), but they have plenty of emotes already. Regardless, it's possibly too commune-specific. City Elfen may not want to talk to those disruptive and vicious little creatures.

    Well, those two kind of do replicate the existing ones but with a bit more specifics - dapplelight is just a reskin of canopy, you could argue. (Which I would much rather have as a demigod racial, anyway!)

    Hmm, as for other alternatives, how about:

    rainpetals (Wildewood)
    1: You sway your blossoming branches and release dozens of fluttering petals and glowing spores that gently rain down about you, filling the air with colour and light.
    3: Elryn sways his blossoming branches and releases dozens of fluttering petals and glowing spores that gently rain down about you, filling the air with colour and light.
    1t: You sway your blossoming branches above Vorjel, showering him in a rain of fluttering petals and glowing spores that obscure his form in a swirling cloud of multi-hued colour and light.
    2t: Elryn sways his blossoming branches above you, showering you in a rain of fluttering petals and glowing spores that obscure your surroundings in a swirling cloud of multi-hued colour and light.
    3t: Elryn sways his blossoming branches above Vorjel, showering him in rain of fluttering petals and glowing spores that obscure them both in a swirling cloud of multi-hued colour and light.
    Pose: Elryn sways his branches here, raining down petals and glowing spores throughout the area.
    TPose: Elryn sways his branches here, surrounding Vorjel and himself in a rain of petals and glowing spores.

    shedleaves (Wyrdenwood)
    1: You flex your powerful boughs and shed a handful of razor sharp leaves that fall slowly to the ground below, their drifting path weaving a mesmerising and unpredictable aerial display of death.
    3: Elryn flexes his powerful boughs and sheds a handful of razor sharp leaves that fall slowly to the ground below, their drifting path weaving a mesmerising and unpredictable aerial display of death.
    1t: You flex your powerful boughs towards Vorjel and shed dozens of razor sharp leaves that fall all around him, bladed death drifting on the breeze in a mesmerising display.
    2t: Elryn flexes his powerful boughs towards you and sheds dozens of razor sharp leaves that fall around you, bladed death drifting on the breeze in a mesmerising display.
    3t: Elryn flexes his powerful boughs towards Vorjel and sheds dozens of razor sharp leaves that fall around them both, bladed death drifting on the breeze in a mesmerising display.
    Pose: Elryn flexes his powerful boughs here, shedding razor sharp leaves that drift to the ground.
    TPose: Elryn flexes his powerful boughs here, shedding razor sharp leaves that drift around Vorjel in mesmerising and unpredictable patterns.

    Apparently wag isn't an emote, but a hardcoded feature unique to loboshigaru. 
  • VersaleanVersalean Member Posts: 662 Mythical
    The emotes that upset me hardest are the human ones. They are just so... :|

    I mean, don't get me wrong, making humans interesting in any fantasy genre is difficult, because, faced with any fantasy race, the reader's question is "How are they different from humans?". But still. We can do better than this. It's as if the standout thing about humans in Lusty is that they don't stand out. But even if that's the case the emotes could fit it better. It could certainly be that I'm a loren00b and Just Don't Get It. If that's the case, I'm willing to bet I'm not the only one.

    Scenery

    1u: Feeling uninteresting, you blend into the scenery.
    3u: Versalean blends into the scenery, deeply uninteresting.

    To clarify for everybody, most emotes aren't hardcoded. We do have a few that are (and generally, they're from very, very early on in the game's history) such as 'doff', 'mm/mmmmmm', 'ah/ahhhh', 'greet', 'swear', 'ok', 'wag', 'ring', ''brandish', 'flex', 'roll', 'toast', and several others which I didn't list.

    Luce said:

    This can only happen for hardcoded emotes, which is easy enough to do, but still requires it to be brought to myself rather than just simply added. Generally, as much as I love adding simple new things, this goes to the back of my todo list because I have far bigger things to work on at any time (such as factions or bugs). Doesn't mean it's not doable, but we try to avoid it if at all possible because even on the new features front, there's higher priority stuff on the backlog.

    Can the "ah" emote please be targettable? When there's a group of people talking, I'd like to show which one I'm reacting to specifically.

    You give Hoaracle a look of comprehension.
    Kerith gives you a look of comprehension.

    Or is this too difficult because it's one of the hardcoded ones?

    In general, an emote is only hardcoded if it does different things for different people or has a failure message (e.g. tailwag, where races with a tail rag it and races without one shake their rear end, or doff in which it doffs the hat you're wearing and gives an error message if you don't have one).
