Hiya

Are you currently accepting articles on sub-cultures within races? Specifically, I'm looking at doing an Air'riela write up but wanted to check in terms of it being currently 'no races'.

Thanks!

We've had this conversation in chat before re: Air'riela.

My response then was no. I suppose I can amend that to a tentative "if you can produce a reasonable write-up." What I absolutely refuse to allow at all is a huge honking write-up. A brief description about the Air'riela I'll allow - they have this general appearance, this is what they do and where they're found and a brief glimpse at their cultural flare.

Absolutely under no circumstances (as I've told you before) are there going to be mentions about mysterious gypsy powers that they definitely have (because now they don't). I mean you can say that they're rumored to hold powers (but they don't actually have them).

So. REALLY SUPER BRIEF WRITE-UP. If you can't do that, then no. The chat convo we had about NO will hold.
That's it.

Great - that's actually exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for - I don't like (as you know cos we've chatted about it) the mesaka thing / the line drifting thing, never have used either of them, don't like them.

But a brief "there is this group who folks mostly don't like / trust and who have the following cultural strangeness" works for me.

Fab! Thanks

I was thinking that the combat primer on swords needs an extra category on Longknives. These should include tantos. Longknives is practically the niche in between daggers and shortswords...think elven blades for instance.

Each type of combat category explicitly states that these are examples of bladed/bowed weapons. There's about 3-5 examples each and that is all. More will not be added in.

Serale Nimh,

I have seen several references to a Primer on Politics. But I don't see any thread.here that show any work in progress.
Is it currently underway? Or, is it just pending?
If the latter, can i help?

Best,

Hi Cam!

Politics is currently being worked on behind the scenes in our Working Group! It's a very vast, very detail-oriented set of many write-ups and may take us some time to iron out (due to life and just the detail required). We will have it up, I hope, in the near future. If you have plans to get involved in politics, don't let the lack of write-ups dissuade you. Veterans will still be happy to answer any questions that you have as well as help guide you IC with plots to help you along!

Thanks,
Nimh

I really thought politics would be removed from the game, given that most if not all positions bar the governor ones have been completely filled in by NPC's. Though I might be wrong and this is simply BECAUSE you are reworking the politics system/primer. If this is the case, my apologies for bringing this up.

I can't speak to the primer, as I am not involved. Politics is far from removed. The issue seems to be one of interest. Not interest in the positions per say, but interest in the threads and time it takes to network, move up the ladder, etc..

Positions have been filled by NPCs out of need, and yes, I suppose, to a degree to maintain some moderation control over things. That said, it is not (that I have been made aware) a removal of anything political.

Maybe Nimh or someone privvy to the primer rework could make further comment.

As Shal said, we have not removed politics from the game (that'd be silly--some people really enjoy that stuff!). Faust and Tiyribi hold governor positions at present, as an example of high-ranking PCs.

What we are no longer going forward with is allowing PCs to hold the HIGHEST ranking positions. So we're not having any Archprelates or Emperors that are PCs, for example. They are more behind the scenes, creating plotlines and driving forces for the PCs to work with, so to speak. Jacob does a better job of explaining that particularly thing but that's the general gist.

A Primer to Natural Materials - Aelyria

There will be no other lists of materials. Please see the note at the bottom of the primer!
