Re: Looking for a Spouse
That's right, Vatul is looking for a spouse to advance the Feyranti name and culture.
Before I get to her personal advert, I will provide a little bit of history about the Feyranti, and their reputation:
The Feyranti were originally dracnari before they were viscanti master race, bred in a combination of elfen and a variety of other races to become some of the most beautiful. Obviously elfen were used to soften up the harsh angles, but this is not a good topic of discussion to speak of with any type of Great House. They have their own races that they once started from, and now only vaguely resemble, Taint Power(tm).
The Feyranti Estate, which somehow connects to the first dracnari ancestor, there is wealth to be found there. The Blood Mines are owned by the Feyranti, and they often recruit viscanti children who are supposed to arrive at Saint Gathlyn's but unfortunately never do. This wealth has made them powerful, and renowned for their in-fighting and greed which is explained through the quest of the Feyranti Heirs (QUEST FEYRANTIHEIR).
Brona was the original founder alongside Akasha. Feyranti notable Daevos, the Midnight Dragon was the son of Brona. He was a Warlord, and a well-known one back in Old Magnagora. The Feyranti, or Iron Feyranti are a Blood House, they are usually archtyped as warriors of the highest caliber, Nil-bent on acquiring honour and glory for the Empire. I would like to think of Feyranti as Julius Augustus Caesar-like, rather than Nero, but it is Magnagora.
As far as I know, Daevos and Zalana created the Feyranti Estate in Magnagora proper, along with some clans that held resources which I no longer have access to. The family structure and established culture is uncertain, but it appears to be militaristic as far as I know. The lines have dwindled, and the Feyranti need many strong heirs to take on the name once more.
The symbol of the Feyranti is a dragon.
The House d'Sifal are banner-men to the Feyranti, not much of them is known to me.
Iron, ammolite, silver, and crimson are the colours of the house.
The motto of the house is, "Strength Through Adversity."
The original patron of the Feyranti was Lord Fain of the Crimson Masque
(Bless HIS glorious name, grovel before HIS might)
. The current patron is the Lady Enchantress.
The Feyranti own a ship that sails the Sea of Despair, it is christened, "The Crimson Lady." Yishka Feyranti is the Captain.
The Feyranti own the Blood Mines where midnight caiman reside. The mines produce blood diamonds, which are said to have strange arcane powers.
The Feyranti possess an estate in Magnagora proper.
Possible existing cultural norms or traits:
We like viscanti, but we are willing to accept those who have drive and ambition to forge themselves as notable members of the Empire.
Temperament. Prone to rages, acts of unspeakable violence when control is lost. Control is key.
Decadence. Indulgence. Greed. A hunger to transform and empower themselves and others.
Honour and discipline. Discipline and control are not the same thing.
Strength rules. Any kind of strength. Physical strength in battle, or battleworn is
Children require discipline to survive the harshness of unlife. Old traditions are made quite clear - Feyranti children are spoiled, but not so much that they become brats.
Currently matriarchal, as a brood of Dragons is often focused on a Broodmother or Queen. The Broodmother usually has the final say, but input is welcome...Until it isn't.
While there is a militaristic air towards the archtype of a Blood House, and the history of Daevos. There is mobs like Yishka, who seems to be mercantile, and scientist in one. The mobs on the estate are similarly aligned. There is no expanding on research or historical events like i'Xiia's creation of the Necromentate, or the d'Vanecu's assistance with a variety of experiments.
I'd like to see more NPC Feyranti.
Developments I've made:
The Iron Brood is what they call themselves from the inside. Or simply the Brood.
All are spoken of as dragons. But to earn the mantle of a title of dragon, i.e. "Dragon of Dusk," or "the Dragon of Midnight," one has to do some great works on behalf of the family.
All dragons receive cloaks, stoles, and recently shields denoting their heritage. More dragon stuff to come.
- Artifacts. I have some useful ones.
- I have too many cartels. I can customise a lot of stuff for you.
- Manse and shop. I can sell things to make a lot of gold to expand some influence.
- Magnagora has a lot of clans for combat, resources, and fighters. I am usually doing bard, nihilism, or geomancer. But I am willing to branch out to learn some things for others should they be interested in joining.
More members. Expand upon culture, do research about Feyranti, uncover some more stuff. Regain old resources. Expand, expand, expand.
What I am seeking in a character spouse for Vatul:
- Male, age inconsequential
- Must marry into Feyranti
- Must be active enough to adopt children, and take care of said children with my character
- Race preferences (but not needed for application, you can be whatever race): Orclach, viscanti, loboshigaru, human.
- RP-oriented and combat friendly person
- Strongly encouraged to be Magnagoran, no enemies of Magnagora please.
- Rich in-depth interactions required. RP skills desired. Heavy IC immersion.
- Ambitious and active, dormancy is fine as long as it is in short periods. Tell me when you're gone for a bit!
- Shows ambition, has accomplishments worthy of her attention. Serving Magnagora well gets her attention too.
- Involvement. You're doing things with Gods. You're doing something that help Magnagora. Whatever it is, it's a part of your character.
- You like the occult. You like culture.
- A gentleman, not the fedora type. Old world nobility or something similar often attracts her, that includes their cutthroat behavior. Manners. Decorum. Mr. Darcy but with murderous intent! Wait, that's not quite right...Maybe a Lestat, Armand, or Alucard. Not too dramatic though.
- Romance. She wants to be swept off her feet, if that happens to be after they murder or slaughter people for research or interrogation - then so be it.
- Their own individual, someone who has gumption and a pair of cogs on him. Strength, not arrogance.
- Takes their time to be with her, showering her with courting/poetry/truth. She's eccentric, she wants to be someone's muse but treats her as what she is with respect.
The rest is ICly, really. I have already mentioned my resources and the family stuff. If you are interested, contact me IG with an OOC message or tell.

I appreciate what you do and I want to say thank you.
Re: Lusternia Megathread: Economy Edition
So this is basically unrelated to the current topics but you called it an economy megathread so I'm gonna pitch this anyway: make artifacts rentable with gold. This does three good things.
First, it creates a constant gold sink - temporary artifacts means anyone keeping them would continuously be removing gold from the system. There were probably be some growing pains here due to the whole 'people have way too much gold stocked due to zero reason to burn it ever for the last decade' thing.
Second, it lowers cost of entry: it's essentially easier to grind gold than it is to grind credits. Further, people are generally way more free about tossing around gold, and unlike credits it's never bound; it'd be pretty easy to give a couple nice things to a youngling.
Third, it makes the first taste free. By giving people samples of artifact bonuses, you're creating a pull for them to shell out later.
alternatively just delete every single artifact when stuff goes f2p
Re: Lusternia Megathread: Economy Edition
1: divorce goop from being able to buy anything generally worth over 100 credits. If a newbie works hard and earns goop to buy an artifact vial, cool. At no point should --anyone-- be buying a 2k credit artifact which isn't actually worth 2k credits due to the currency it was purchased with. Buy a cubix, spend 1k goop for a skin, bam! A cubix of gnomebone is yours.
Things I think should definitely be kept as goop-purchasable no matter what: vials, bandoliers, pipes, packs/pouches, noses, skins of any kind, aethersuits and their parts/pieces, gnome weapons, prayerbeads, zimoru, stasis/privacy gems.
2. The admin need to understand that people purposefully bought many of these items listed as tagged items because they produced Czigany coins. I can assure you that 95% of people who bought urtraps didn't buy them mostly for the cookies, and most people only use them for silver cookies (xp).
We get it that things have changed, and they're gonna change more. It still stings, so it may not be a bad idea to cushion the blow. Work on increasing the rewards of our investment within your system: removing the goop cap is a good start.
Another would be to remove the concept of "sticky" goop. Frankly, if goop is no longer worth credits in any way, there shouldn't be an issue if I want to buy an artifact vial for someone else, or even one of my own alts. Nobody is going to be grinding up mountain of goop to supply their alt-army with cherub-bone vials. Probably not.
3: Allow us to spend goop on more things than consumables. I'd trade goop for personal customizations, or essence, or to extend the decay on something I can't rune, or any number of things. Be creative!

It has just come to our attention that Ixion has just crossed the threshold of travelling to every
location in the realm and achieving a 100% explorer ranking. He has been given a special honour.
Penned by My hand on the 17th of Urlachmar, in the year 514 CE.
You squeal in excitement.

You give a pained sigh.
Re: Good Vibrations!
The gods continue to help Versalean with his strange little obsession, and I'm really grateful. Latest contributor was
. An interaction that lasts less than 5 minutes can literally get me bouncing around my living room like a gummy bear.
Re: General Dissatisfaction
The retire value thing is a pretty bitter pill, especially since there's a changelog that
gave retire value to goop-only artifacts that had lost it (changelog 1524). So coming along after the FTP announcement and saying "someone made an oopsie, here's some tokens so you can spin up some worthless gold, truefavors, and rope" does seem a bit disingenuous.

Re: Retiring with Cartels?
Hello! Just to offer a bit more clarity on this point: we can move the designs, or change whether they are public/private. We do also have to do it manually, for every single design.
That doesn't mean you should never ask! There are some times where a genuine mistake is made, or something happens where you really need the designs moved. In those cases it's totally fine to ask (and you can do so by messaging Us in game). But it does mean that we're unlikely to move your 50 private designs to another cartel if you're retiring or passing the cartel on, etc.
We will also only ever accept such requests from the Trademaster and/or cartel owner, and will clarify with the recipient TM/cartel owner if relevant that it's okay to move things (in the case of transferring between cartels).
