    Obviously, the admin need to turn it into a hunting/influencing area.
    Everiine said: The reason population is low isn't because there are too many orgs. It's because so many facets of the game are outright broken and protected by those who benefit from it being that way. An overabundance of gimmicks (including game-breaking ones), artifacts that destroy any concept of balance, blatant pay-to-win features, and an obsession with convenience that makes few things actually worthwhile all contribute to the game's sad decline.

    Tune the gold down though, getting 300k in a clear was more than a touch overkill.

    The divine voice of Avechna, the Avenger reverberates powerfully, "Congratulations, Morkarion, you are the Bringer of Death indeed."

    You see Estarra the Eternal shout, "Morkarion is no more! Mourn the mortal! But welcome True Ascendant Karlach, of the Realm of Death!

    Why does Eventru's kick you out when Elostian's doesn't?
    A whisper from the trees and a frosty presence tells you, secretly, "But you are strong, little 
    flower, and wise." The voice shifts and expands, becoming more real. "And everything you just said 
    in the ritual made me feel safer. You should, too."

    That's actually a good question.

    I think that's entirely up to the Divine, personally I think it's a shame, because it was such a well designed and well written place.

    Anyway we're steering off topic. More profiles please!

    Eventru's gone @Aison

    Was a minor event where Eventru and Lyreth fused to become Valtreth.

    And you should totally make your own post here. For sure.
    @Kiradawea I know he's gone, it's the reason I stopped playing. :( and because of that I feel I have no reason to create one of these, as great as they look. I am enjoying reading everyone else's, though!

    Character Name: Llewell Broadleaf

    THE ESSENTIALS

    Race: Elfen
    Gender: Male
    Guild: Spiritsingers
    City/Commune: Serenwilde
    Order: Maylea (Llewell doesn't have a clear understanding of what Maylea stands for. He's mostly in the order because She's interesting, and has a lot of history to read)

    THE LOOK

    Hair: Flaxen and straight, almost a bleached blonde and cut shoulder length
    Eyes: Sharp, wintery blue
    Height: A bit under two metres in height
    Build: Generally thin, but with good posture.
    Defining Features: He seems to try and keep his hands clean no matter what he does.
    Piercings: None
    Scars: None

    PERSONALITY

    Strengths: Has a great respect for nature and older people. He's a designer, and will generally show that he likes you by designing you things (Qistral's ladybug starleaf throne comes to mind).

    Weaknesses: Distrustful of people outside Serenwilde, even people who he believes to be allies at the time. This leads him to lose a lot of business, as he rarely jumps to serve cityfolk as an artisan.

    Attitude: Generally quiet and polite.

    Morals: Might be described as Lawful Evil for the most part. Llewell is a bit dark, and doesn't see the harm in killing communemates if they aren't productive or are "leeching from the commune" in some way, like simply sitting around while Serenwilde is being raided. The Leaves in Serenwilde keep him from this..for now. To quote his motto, "Nature is harsh and unforgiving".

    Pet Peeves: Snugglers. Oh god, people who snuggle and romp and lick each other piss him off to no end. Also, people who whine that they can't advance or better themselves, and just sit around.

    Best way to piss me off: Not being useful or having a purpose.

    Best way to get on my good side: Better yourself, show respect to elders, perform rituals for public display.

    FAVORITES

    Color: Silver, white, blue. Llewell loves ice, and icy tones. 

    Tertiary: Ecology

    Tertiary Skill: ForestSmudge. Nothing like remotely hitting enemies with burning damage/stun from a few rooms away.

    Primary Skill: Wildarrane, Ecology

    Location: A frost-laden grove of maple. (his manse)

    God/Goddess: Maylea, but he would give anything to join Auseklis' order if Auseklis was active.

    Guild Master/House Head (all time): None.

    Artifact: a plush doll of Shashi

    Commodity: Snowballs.

    Animal: Snow mammoth

    Item owned: a frost-clasped mandolin of ancestral spirits. a whimsical throne of Czigany memories

    Village/forest/region: Icewynd

    NPC: a spirited snow phoenix with wings of black frost

    Memory: Llewell once created a tapestry for Maylea, and was asked by Her not to submit it, because She felt it was too personal. She may not have thought much about the incident, but it gave Llewell a lot of respect for Her, as well as himself for hitting so close to home. 

    Song: None. Llewell doesn't even like listening to other people's bardic songs, and only has one himself because it helps his ecology smudges.

    Drink: Almost any white tea with flavor.

    MINDSET

    Goals: Destroy all of the cities, covering them in trees with the help of Glomdoring. Llewell sees Glomdoring as an enemy, but not as much as he does the cities, and he'd rather team up with the Wyrd than the cityfolk if given a chance.

    Ambitions: to help Serenwilde turn to a  mindset where people carried their weight or are kicked out. 

    Nemesis: Gabriella, who is one of the higher ranking people in Maylea's order. He looked up to Gabriella for a long while and also had a bit of a crush on her,  but she started being condescending and rude to him (or so he feels), and was largely unapproachable. He feels he would have advanced in Maylea's order if she had been more approachable and better explained Maylea's tenets, which he still doesn't understand. He feels she is scatterbrained and uninteresting, and he scowls every time he thinks of her. 

    Rival: Lyethal, who annoys him to no end.

    Best Friend: Niina. Caerlyr to a lesser extent, who helped him found a family and then jumped ship and joined a city. What a pitiful wench.

    Idol: Everiine. Llewell looks up to Everiine as part of the "old guard", and sees him as a reminder of how Serenwilders should act. 

    Best personal achievement: Winning fifth place in Beauty one year with his throne.

    Worst personal achievement: None, yet.

    Proudest moment:  Also none yet.

    Most shameful moment: Also none yet. Geeze, I need to play Llewell more.

    If I could make one wish: Destroy all of the cities.
     
    SUMMARY

    Why you should hate him: Unless you're older than him or an elfen, he doesn't like you. He's a grouchy old man, despite his youth.

    Why you should love him: Because even if he doesn't like you, he'll help you out no matter what.

    Why you should fear him: You shouldn't.

    Why he is harmless: He's not especially confrontational, and would rather sit back and let things happen. In combat, he's more of a supportive person, spamming smudges from a distance (and he's quick about it too). 

    If he ruled the world, you'd best expect: Imagine a forest mixed with Hallifax. That forest would cover the first world, and he'd be sitting somewhere in it, finally at peace.

    Everiine said: The reason population is low isn't because there are too many orgs. It's because so many facets of the game are outright broken and protected by those who benefit from it being that way. An overabundance of gimmicks (including game-breaking ones), artifacts that destroy any concept of balance, blatant pay-to-win features, and an obsession with convenience that makes few things actually worthwhile all contribute to the game's sad decline.

    This is a useful exercise for a thing I’m working on so here we are.

    Also here is an excellent example of character building from True Detective:



    Very much a love letter to Ligotti

    Character Name: Kaalak Mittani

    THE ESSENTIALS

    Race: Human, previously Elfen

    Gender: Male

    Guild: Matrix Research Institute

    City/Commune: Hallifax

    Order: Lady Isune

    Background Summary: Started in Magnagora as a Nihilist. Went to Celest and joined Celestines, serving as administrator for several years. Moved to Hallifax as a retiree.

    THE LOOK

    Hair: Long black hair pulled in a ponytail, now greying in an increasing number of streaks.

    Eyes: Brown

    Height: Six one.

    Build: Build of an endurance runner.

    Defining Features: Kaalak is 250 years old. He has noticeable laugh and frown lines (more of the former) adding character to his weathered face. Overall he appears to be in his late thirties. There is a slight point to his ears reflecting his Elfen origins.

    Piercings: none

    Scars: Several, all decades old now.

    PERSONALITY

    Strengths/Weaknesses: Strengths and weaknesses are context dependent.

    Kaalak is highly analytical, perceptive, and occasionally creative. He has firm convictions. Or he’s an arrogant asshole. A little of column A, a little of column B. Somewhere in there, there is a sense of humor. He is a perfectionist.

    Attitude/ Morals: Since his arrival in the Basin, Kaalak has always considered himself a ‘Servant of the State.’ Kaalak views this ‘State’ in abstract almost amoral terms: specifically a society of mortal individuals is best viewed as a Machine, specifically some sort of dynamic engine. The overall politics of the Machine or the direction the Machine is going is … not his concern. Specifically Kaalak views all individuals with in this system as cogs of varying size proportional to their contribution to the society. Whether the cogs are tightly interacting in lock step, or given to wandering flitting between different functions, or if they spin doing seemingly nothing at all; Kaalak considers all of this to be simply the equilibrium of the Machine at a given time. Kaalak’s attention is only drawn to cogs that disrupt the function of other cogs; specifically individuals who harm other individuals and derive personal pleasure from their actions. Said individuals are detrimental to the Machine’s health and function as a whole as they detract from the Machine’s resources rather than contribute to it. Such individuals are Sadists.

    These aberrant cogs damage the Society-Machine by each sadistic action they take; and more broadly by their continued existence within the society even while they take no action. For the Society-Machine to continue to function these aberrant cogs must be removed permanently. In lieu of termination, the resources of the aberrant cogs must be limited or removed at every opportunity. The resources sanctioned to be removed include the aberrant cogs’ resource of time, political influence, or physical ability to harm another i.e. their weapons or hands.
     
    When an individual in the society is aware of an aberrant cog, has the resources to limit them and the mindset to do so then said individual is compelled to act for the benefit of the Society-Machine. This mandate may not necessarily be sanctioned by the political ruling body of the Society, but that is irrelevant. An individual aware of the destructive element is mandated to act purely based on their awareness of the sadist. There is no higher authority. In addition, there is to be no glory in acting as an executioner-regulatory mechanism for the Society-Machine. The individual purely serves the function of an adaptive immune response in the context of the Society-Machine. The individual’s will becomes temporarily co opted or directly parallel to the desire for self-preservation of the Society-Machine.

    In a poetic sense the individual temporarily becomes a literal servant of the society/state, rather than any discrete internal political body.

    Once no target is present, the individual is to return to basal society-contributing functions.

    If an individual takes action that is too disruptive to the Society-Machine, another cog in the Society-Machine will become aware of him and his actions and judge for his/herself whether those actions deserve terminal sanction. The success of one of the two aware components in conflict is a function of each component’s respective resources and stochastic events. Ultimately, a self-regulating equilibrium is established within the Society-Machine to remove sadists and also remove aware individuals who may take acts so extreme they themselves function as sadists. That on average, the strong survive, is ultimately beneficial to the Society-Machine’s long term robustness.

    FAVORITES

    Color: Black. Goes with everything.

    Tertiary Skill: Tarot

    Primary Skill: Harmonics

    Location: Libraries everywhere.

    Divine: Elostian, Isune.

    Artifact: a plush doll of Gorgulu, Devourer of Souls. If I had a Volucer doll, it would be my favorite.

    Commodity: Silk or Cloth

    Animal: I don’t recall Kaalak ever having a favorite animal. Could be wrong.
    Item owned: Whatever piece of clothing Lady Nihmriel has generously tailored for me.

    Village/forest/region: Arthar’rt Observatory, Presidio of the Damned

    NPC: Volucer, Master of Her Majesty’s Air Force, hands down. Uuken Exley, Butler of Erudio is a close second.

    Memory: Kaalak’s favorite memories are late night impromptu philosophical discussions with Lord Elostian with thinly veiled references to thermodynamics, evolution and quantum physics. Wherever you are sir, I salute you.

    Song: No real ‘favorites’ but for no reason at all Kaalak sometimes burst out in show tunes or Sinatra songs. There is no rhyme or reason for this. Sometimes members of Lady Isune’s order are unfortunately subjected to this when I think the aether is empty.

    Drink: Yes.

    MINDSET

    Goals: As a member of Hallifax Kaalak is finally enjoying a creative outlet as a member of Lady Isune’s Order. Unfortunately for him (and possibly the Order) for Kaalak, creation involves an above average amount of frustration and effort. Kaalak feels personally very fortunate that Lady Isune and his fellow Order mates put up with the grizzled old cantankerous human who fusses and rants about this design or that project from the alcoves of his aethermanse. His goals are to finish his list of projects and make a specific bird happy.

    Ambitions: Finish projects before you start others, damn it.

    Nemesis: None. All have fallen on the swords of their own hubris. Some enjoyed a little push.

    Rival: Akyaevin/Esano and Celina. Kaalak enjoys annoying Akyaevin ad Celina when the opportunity presents itself. Akyaevin has on occasion tried to target him during revolts and on other occasion when Kaalak becomes too much of a jackass, but so far Kaalak has managed to dance away from earthquakes and chasms like the Tarot’s own Fool. Celina has learned the only winning move it not to play and thus Kaalak is rather annoyed that she is not around. VERY. ANNOYED.

    Idol: Way way back when Kaalak was very young I believe Neerth was his Idol.

    Best personal achievement: Quiet work.

    Worst personal achievement: No regrets.

    Proudest moment: One of the more recent ones was learning that Kaalak could successfully keep up in a rap battle. First time I ever tried to wax lyrical. Who knew?

    Certainly another one was getting the Celestines to build a bust of Neerth, a former Celestine Administrator (iirc) and all around excellent roleplayer, in the novice area of Celest. Having the opportunity to see Neerth return and see his well-deserved monument was a very fine moment indeed.

    If I could make one wish: Wishes are ineffective. Make plans instead.

    SUMMARY

    Why you should hate/love/fear/ him: These are dumb questions, seriously.

    If he ruled the world, you'd best expect: Kaalak isn’t interested in ruling the world or in ruling in general. He believes society generated by the accretion of events and random interpersonal interactions is much more interesting than any plan he could personally envision, because it generates a greater diversity than his imagination can encompass. That is about the extent of Kaalak’s ‘humility’: realizing the universe is significantly larger (and more interesting) than his personal sense of self. You cannot beat the Chaos of life into Order…but you can manage events to generate systems that support your own ideals and improve one’s own personal condition. In accordance with is worldview, Kaalak prefers to work behind the scenes and apply pressure where/when his intelligence indicates tipping points are likely to occur.

    Celina says "Well I was only mocking out of obligation."

    Kaalak you just made me it crystal clear why the cog imagery, metaphors and allusions are detrimental to the core identity of Magnagora.

    Bit of a necro, but I just couldn't resist!

    Character Name: Siam Star-eyes

    THE ESSENTIALS


    Race: Shadowsinger Faeling Demigod

    Gender: Male

    Guild: Harbingers

    City/Commune: Glomdoring

    Order: Viravain


    THE LOOK


    Hair: Black

    Eyes: Heterochromatic emerald and sapphire star-eyes

    Height: Tall

    Build: Athletic

    Defining Features: Heterochromatic emerald and sapphire star-eyes and a body of shadows

    Piercings: None

    Scars: A wound that never healed which spells out @Narynth's name - this was from a long, long, long time ago; Narynth did it for fun


    PERSONALITY


    Strengths:


    He is approachable, very friendly and believes in the best and the potential in everyone, even if they don't see it yet. He is very loyal and is willing to contribute in whatever ways he can. Very often, he encourages those who sees a lot of potential in to step up, most noticeable when he was the Prince of Shadows and the Librarian of Glomdoring. He makes it a point to talk to you personally and he can be quite shameless when he wants results.


    He is unfazed by defeat and is always ready to give pep talks should things don't turn favorably.  This is most noticeable during the Glomffpeak Raids Era, or whenever the latest library contest didn't churn up a lot of entries.


    He is strongly against the very idea of giving up, of being apathetic. It is a weakness he nips in the bud should he sense it.


    Weaknesses:


    Over the years, he has woven for himself a reputation for being seemingly talkative, flippant(hello Wyrden Potato, ha) and comical. He attempts to add levity to situations where it can be otherwise inappropriate. This often leads to people underestimating him, which leads to them being surprised when he gets serious and gets things done. Very few people have seen past this.


    Attitude: Friendly, distant, comical, empathetic


    Morals: He is amoral.


    Pet Peeves: DON'T YOU DARE GIVE UP AND GO EMO AND WAIL AND BE ALL MISERABLE IN FRONT OF HIM.


    Best way to piss me off: DON'T YOU DARE GIVE UP AND GO EMO AND WAIL AND BE ALL MISERABLE IN FRONT OF HIM.


    Best way to get on my good side: Design things, write books, be cordial, and put up with him when he tries to be funny.

    Worst personal achievement: Becoming a reclusive Dirgesinger, so much so that Tacita had to replace me.

    Proudest moment: Library wins. Each and every one of them.

    Most shameful moment: Swearing at @Raeri once a loooooong time ago. He has never forgiven himself for that.

    If I could make one wish: get his personal Wyrdling

     

    SUMMARY


    Why you should hate him: He will outlast you. A lot of people who have been quite unpleasant(even downright rude) to him are now gone.

    Why you should love him: He will give peptalks even after all of you died 999999999 times, lost something, etc.

    Why you should fear him: He will outlast you. A lot of people who have been quite unpleasant(even downright rude) to him are now gone. Oh, and beware the Siam that wears the SD-attitude hat.

    Why he is harmless: He is kind.

    If he ruled the world, you'd best expect: a moonless Wyrden sky with lots and lots of auroras and veritable armies of Siam-pixies and Siam-butterflies


    Viravain, Lady of the Thorns shouts, "And You would seize Me? Fool! I am the Glomdoring! I am the Wyrd, and beneath the cloak of Night, the shadows of the Silent stir!"

    I just edited my one, not a lot of difference but changed his ambitions and some of his looks (It's on this page, just scroll up).

    A character who actually accomplishes a goal I have set for him? I love you Haezon.

    Why she is harmless: He is unlikely to ever be in a position to consign entire populations to anything. In the meantime, he's more a theoretician than a field researcher, and he's quite happy to experiment on pigeons

    Scars: When he's injured, he oozes a colorless fluid which does double duty as blood and a sort of sealant. When it hardens, it's indistinguishable from his original flesh, so no scars.
    Doesn't blood, uh, normally work as a sealant?
  • IleeinIleein Member Posts: 630 Mythical
    Yep, but usually it's a bit more temporary!
