Title: H-NA Productions' RP 2 - ERROR:422 (Outgame)
Post by: NejinOniwa on March 15, 2008, 02:04:42 pm
Why, hullo thar.
This is the Ingame Thread's bullied little brother. He is a bit nervous.

Anyway: Have any questions about the world, or the RP? Or are you interested in joining? Get your answers and your character sheet approved here, for great justice.

Brace for copypasta on Character Rules. There's one new thing in there though, so make sure you read that.

Quote from: "Chara Rules"NAME: This one is pretty obvious. Make up one.
CLASS/RACE: If you're a vampire, write that. If you're an old-school Elf, scribble it down. If you're a three-headed monster frog, punch it in. Class is NOT job.
ORIGIN: Just make up some weird country or island or something if you're lazy.
AGE: Once again, pretty simple. Brat or geezer?

APPEARANCE: The general looks of your character. Fatness, pink hair, peg leg or Super-Moe - anything that ways goes here. IMPORTANT: Make sure you write down your Weight/Height here.
PERSONALITY: All random personality traits and quirks go here. This section might be seen as important, since the quality of roleplay is largely based on how well one adapts to one's character. Much innovativeness and fun ideas encouraged!
BACKGROUND: So here you write a little something to make that random planet your character comes from a little less random, and your character's appearance a little less shunkan idou plot device-ish. Once again, tap away at the keyboard as much as you like!

STATS SECTION: Here you have 120 points to spend away with as you like. The base stats will be:
Strength
Dexterity
Intelligence
Karma
Mind

With the last one being stuff like willpower and stress tolerance. You can have maximally 20 in a single stat (unless you have REALLY good reasons to do otherwise).
The rest will be spent on SKILLS and ABILITIES. Skills can be anything from Swordfighting and Navigation to Climbing or Singing. Most skills are pretty self-explanatory but if you have something that isn't all too obvious then write a short note about what it is.
NEW!Job Skills - While some characters will be off-the-road and old-school fighters or so, some will also have had some sort of employment or general work-ism. Given that all these come with a few set necessary skills, which generally encompass the same things, you are allowed to compile all those skills into a single value. For example, a Sailor could have the following skills from his job:
Navigation
Swimming
Sailing
and so on. If you character was a Sailor, then, all these skills would be compiled into a single Job Set, sharing the same value. Important is that one character cannot have more than one Job Set at a time.

Abilities are special stuff, like inborn talents or special effects, and can be stuff like Resistance to poisons and alcohol, Natural armor or (!) Mikuru Beam - it's your choice. I won't dictate point costs much, but use these as guidelines:
Lesser 5p Lagom (moderate) 10p Greater 20p

EQUIPMENT: Here's this section again. It's pretty basic - use you own judgment and get yourself fitting weapons, items and stuff like that. I recommend not having too many weapons as well - the basic issue of carrying the stuff is still De Facto (no hoipoi capsules people ). Now three examples of stuff you DO NOT HAVE:
MOE SLAVE GIRLS.
NUKES.
MECHAS.

since the second two are just cheating, and the first one is just NOT ALLOWED. If you absolutely must, then kidnap another player (although I won't be responsible for the consequences! )

Now some advice on BALANCE:

BASE STATS
6 is bad, 10 is normal, 13 is good, 16 is extreme and 20 is way overkill.
SKILLS
1 is total newbie, 5 is beginner, 10 and you've got all basics down, 15 and you're starting to learn special stuff, 20 and you're good at special stuff, 25 and you've mastered almost everything, 30 and above and you're probably legendary and making up own techniques and teaching people.
Powergaming IS allowed, but i'd not say it's encouraged ^-^; Also, a very low karma will make you eternally followed by misfortune and stuff. Karma is important (and lowering it a way of punishment ) and the only base stat which fluctuates rather heavily depending on your actions. One the other hand it might just also be that little thing you don't care scrap about, like Charisma in DnD - but it's also a way of determining who gets caught in the pitfall, and such; In other words, the DM's bully button. >:3


So there. Have at it, folks! Give this thread your best. ^^

I think I took a huge misstep in designing my character.

I've got no ideas how to play its role.

And it doesn't help much the fact that I've never earlier RP'd, so i'm really clueless.

Hey, hey, hey... ^-^
We've barely started and we're losing confidence? Ah well. Bound to happen. But fear not - now that my compulsory social time is over (I was forced to watch the Eurovision Song Contest national qualifiers with my family ^-^; ) the demon's here to halp! >:3
First off, remember a few words of wisdom from our friend 4chan/b/ - EVERYTHING IS A REPOST OF A REPOST. Simply, you don't have to be thinking in original ways to pull something good off - a good ripoff can do the trick just fine as well, while people trying too hard at originality might just fall into the enormous pitfall of FAIL.
Thus, my tip is to find characters with similar characteristics and in similar situations, and then see what you can use for your own. And while it might sound depressing to say, the fact that there are limits to man's logic simply tells us that most things we may just realize all by ourselves and think of as the greatest idea ever, most likely have been realized and thought before. 4chan/b/ may be the worst place on the internet, an ocean of piss and a radioactive pit filled with scum, camwhores, oldfags, newfags and total stupidity, but just the fact that it allows the more prominent sides of humanity to be openly represented allows it to yield some of the more impressing wisdoms available to its userbase. You just have to realize it.

Anyway. Back on the subject, if you haven't read much fantasy stuff I realize you're pretty hard out, so as another example of a small, tricksy character that still manages to be pretty damn useful would be the Kender Tasslehoff Burrfoot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tasslehoff_Burrfoot) of the Dragonlance series. Read up on it, and perhaps get yourself a copy of the first Dragonlance book (or the newly-released animation) and you might understand what I mean. And while the natures of your characters' structures may be different, I still believe it would match pretty well with the situation.
Other things to look for would be, naturally, similar anime characters; Currently I'm not getting any perfect matches for ideas, though. I can allow you to change some of the elements of your character, though, since you've posted nothing yet - that might enable you to add in one of the classic plot-device transformation-to-bigger-form abilities, like that of Natsume Maya from Tenjou Tenge, Nel from Bleach, and others. This also fits in pretty well with the "moe-powar" element you've put into it - despite it being somewhat of an alien element in most RP situations.

Unfortunately, guys, today I also have some Seriose Business for you. Cue, loads of criticism that i hope to be constructive and not bash you away from this project.
Crucial thing #1: The style and flow of the RP is really, really important. Sorry to say this, smokey-kun, but your first RP post is a typical example of an RP's No Can Do's, especially in a situation as this where you've gotten far far ahead while some of the players might not even have gotten the opportunity to read in on the setting. Also, summarizing events can be really annoying for other players, since it doesn't give them the ability to react - that's why I prefer sort of a "step-by-step"-mode when RPing.
And the second crucial thing I'd like to say here - PLEASE REFRAIN FROM META-ROLEPLAYING.
Yes, it's true that you, as players, know what's going to happen. You know there's going to be a quest, and that a possibility for rewards exist - otherwise there wouldn't be much of a reason for an RP. But think in the mindsets of your characters! That's the most important thing there is when RPing - For example, to take Smokey-kun as an example, what is Crazy Ox most likely to do in the situation he's in? First of all, think of the character. He's a nomad, a shaman, a desert traveler, with a murky and somewhat blooded past. How is he likely to be as a person? Is he likely to be trusting, witty and opportunistic constantly, or is he likely to be somewhat suspicious against everything, with not much knowledge of how things go in the cities? Is the travelling mage Techno likely to be a outward person with a happy smile on his face showing his magic to his companions just because 'hey, they're my companions', or is he likely to be somewhat cautious to everyone since he knows that if his secrets are discovered they might even put him to the torch and set an army after him for being dangerous, and like Fai of Tsubasa Chronicle, never use his magic unless nothing else possibly can work?
Secondly, consider the situation. Crazy Ox is, while not as totally stoned as Eliano, still pretty drunk, and not very likely to be thinking with his clearest head. Is he likely to even care about his companion to the left? And if he would, wouldn't he rather shove him up again, and give him another mug of booze? Would he really act suspicious by drawing a heavily drunk man he's never heard of or seen before up to his room and attempt to extort his secrets from him? Frankly, the only person I can see doing that is Haruhi Suzumiya, and if she was in a world like that she'd have other things to do anyway.
Lastly, consider their knowledge of things. Yes, you know most things about the others' characters - but the important thing is that YOUR characters themselves, DON'T, unless so specified. You as a player know that VonDaab's Imp is flying around under the roof, but your characters haven't even seen her once - and in fact, the only character that could even at first sight recognize that as a possible reality would be Inuchi, and perhaps Techno - neither Ox nor Lenoria-san, or my Eliano for that matter, has any knowledge whatsoever of magic and the such, and at first sight a flying midget wouldn't be anything but a really bizarre hallucination. Just like that, a random drunkard rambling about a stolen boat could with no great amount of cynicism be taken for just that - a rambling drunkard. "Oh, another of those people," you'd think, and just go on with your dinner, perhaps sparing a thought to get him off the floor.
When RPing you put yourself in the role of someone else than yourself, embracing every aspect of that being at your best. You can allow your own personality to flow through - and that always will happen, since nobody is perfect - but you can't let your knowledge do that. I mean, if Luke Skywalker said, "Look here, Obi-Wan, I know you're supposed to be an old friend of my father, but since you're going to die at the end of this movie anyway I can't spend too much time learning stuff from you, so just give me my lightsaber already, ok?" or, "Man the Deathstar wouldn't even be a challenge if I had Strike Freedom Gundam instead of this damn X-Wing!", sure, that would be pretty funny as a parody, but if you saw that in the actual movie you'd go, "Wtf?" and wonder what the hell was going on. Those mistakes can't be allowed to happen.

TL;DR - You ARE your character, not yourself in another world. And slow down - neither Auto-pilot nor CRUISE CONTROL will help you if you don't even know where the road is.


Man, what a rant.

Added after 12 minutes:

Oh, oh. Forgot a few things.

In light of the "Slow Things Down" policy, please refrain from doing too much slapstick-style one-on-one action. It might be okay from time to time, but remember to give the whole group an opportunity to read through and react before you go on. No plan is perfect, and improvisation is crucial to RPing as well. ^^

Also some Syntax-related business: To get some nice Order into the whole business, while writing posts try keeping to the following guidelines:
Punctuate and format. Seriously, bad grammar is such a turnoff. And long, long posts from side to side for rows and rows over and over have little charm, while the same post divided by space and paragraph will be much easier to read.
Individualization by Color. Last year we had the procedure of using color to identify expressions of our characters - for example, dialogue would be formatted as "Character-specific color and citation marks!" and the same characters internal thoughts would be Lettering in the same color, and italics... . This worked pretty well, from what I saw, and is also a way to flesh out our characters more. Therefore, next time you post, pick a color for your char's dialogue and thoughts, and stick with it. I've picked Dark Red as Eliano's color, by the way, to start things off.

Now, TO THE HEAVENS AND BEYOND!!! WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE!!??

Post by: NejinOniwa on March 15, 2008, 08:07:23 pm
If you're up for it, then, I guess there's little I can do. Since you've posted no RPing, the only damage done will be the loss of a character which I thought, at least, was pretty funny to make to fit in. But I guess that just like playing a Psi as your first chara, this thing is pretty hard on you to as a first go. Naturally, permission granted.
To ease the burden on you I'd recommend a somewhat more "native" character - simply, from the area covered by the map (or close to it). The first thing that came to mind was a Halderan soldier, since their system is pretty well-defined and makes up for easy creation of a character - but I guess you already have an idea, so go for it.

Post by: VonDaab on March 15, 2008, 08:23:57 pm
Well I was thinkin making a bit more "normal" character, a character that doesnt fly, is normal human sized and doesn't exist only for the comical relief.

Btw, how's the so called "fantasy races" avaible in this world. I mean, is there like elves and dwarwes, etc..?

Oh, there's so many questions now.

How much has gunpowder(or something similar) technology been researched?
And what would the time-era be if compared to this world?
Title: H-NA Productions' RP 2 - ERROR:422 (Outgame)
Post by: NejinOniwa on March 15, 2008, 09:52:54 pm
Ha! Good thing I picked this for stage, otherwise I'd be frantically scribbling things together right now. Well, here's what I'll give you...

First off, the "Fantasy Races".
Answer is as follows: YES, they exist. NO, they are not available. I know, I'm sully, but to explain the situation more in detail, ever since the Xenocide Wars many, many millenia ago, the non-human races have secluded themselves from the outer face of the world by different means. I won't go into it since that's a major spoiler point, but over the world there exist Enclaves of the more prominent races such as elvenkind hidden by powerful mechanisms, while other races were entirely wiped out or pushed to the brink of extinction.
Thus, the nonhuman sentients left to this world are living for themselves - and none at all, or diminutively few, are ever seen outside the enclaves; let alone among humans. Thus it is a disturbingly small chance to encounter one of these beings, wherefore I see it as inappropriate to RP one without the proper knowledge. (Which I and I alone would be having.)

The second and third questions are a bit tricky.
EWAR is a world that is divided. That means other parts of the world have different progress. Also, some parts of the world know of and use Ra, thus greatly differing in their scientific progress as they not use much of traditional science but rather magitechnology.
Because of this I won't go much into the parts of the world off the map for this RP. Covering Quarmote and around-lying areas, though, are pretty easy. Easier, at least.

While gunpowder or any similar equivalent doesn't exist in Quarmote, the Halderan military's special Exper units use a great deal of scientifically experimental weapons - and being a very large economic force in the country, they also supply the market with technology and chemicals. Minituarization is advanced enough to make analogue clockwork devices the size of a normal watch, and sophisticated artificial coloring chemicals exist. Healer Expers have developed somewhat advanced medicinal technology, and some attempts at Bio-weapons and modified poisons have been successful. Experiments with Nitroglycerin have been performed as well, but due to the lack of control that we as well experienced before Alfred Nobel came along, the use of it is extremely limited. Electricity is accepted as a phenomenon and some understanding of its mechanisms exist, but there is hardly any usage of it due to materialistic limitations.
The spread of the technology is thin, though, because of economical reasons, as well as military secrecy. Some chemical formulas have been sold to major merchants and companies in Peltair, as have some of the more advanced devices, but the sky-high import price doesn't make them very attractive products; and Peltair has little ability to produce them on their own. Similarly, due to the long-time hostility between Haldera and Vassica, with the exception of some naval trade there exists no form of exchange at all between the nations - and least of all with advanced technology, which is the only thing Haldera has to counter the vast Vassican supremacy in military strength number-wise.

I believe the Time-Era question is hard to answer, but mainly what's above should answer it. It's sort of a rough mix, something like a 16-1700's with a touch of 1800's and minus gunpowder and plus lots of weird stuff. At least that's what goes for Quarmote.

Post by: NejinOniwa on March 16, 2008, 11:08:40 am
Not where you are! How do you expect to grow coffee in the desert, eh? ^-^

Added after 21 minutes:

To remind you all - desert covers 70 percent of the continent. Mountains make up for another 15 percent; they may be somewhat colder and contain some usable valleys, but little land inside - and only the 15% of the continent, largely consisting of the coastline and some larger lowlands, are usable for cultivation. With the exception of the small mountain valleys, the cultivated areas are the following:
HALDERA:
The Bloodmarsh around Haelsport and surrounding areas; Nath, Telum and the rest of the South; The Alyn and Thevan Valleys around Alcir, and other valleys in the surrounding Sakrim Lardomni mountain range; The land around Lake Osine southwest of capital Osinia, which also contains the royal preserve; and the area between Lake Zamicron and Luthisport in the far east.
PELTAIR:
The Sandisdale valley, and some of the lower valleys in the surrounding Watcher's Range mountains; the entire flow of the Aebairun river, from the west end of Watcher's Range connecting to Fort Milsvide, Ost, Izcrath and Sempara;
the outer parts of the Windmarsh surrounding Ost; the canal delta around Izcrath (these things are enormously spread, and are the sole reason for Izcrath's xbox hueg size on the map, btw); and lastly the Thiram area in the west.
VASSICA:
Casa Boña canal delta (same reason for map size as Izcrath); the entire North-west region which consists of almost nothing but small villages and farms; the South-west region around Tavacruz and Tava-di-Mienna; and lastly the vast oasis spreads around Charn.

Needless to say, "Cultivated Lands" in this case means quite forcibly so - basically, everything that's not built on sand will be torn down and replaced by farmlands, even if it's just a single yard. Water isn't too hard to come by, but the vast part of the land is totally useless for growing anything but Cactae. Scientific efforts have been made with some success to create desert-living hybrids, with outcomes like the Cactus Grapes and Hornwheat. Quarmote is living hard, but it's doing it fairly well.

I'll be trying to give you some more updates on the world as we proceed, and I'll try to get at least one rant in during the day. I'm supposed to study maths, though, so we'll see how that goes.
Oh: And I'll be trying to give some more effort to the mapmaking, too. I've got zoom-detailed mapping of central Haldera, as well as maps for the entire nation and East Peltair, on paper, and I'll be trying to fix them up into digital form sometime. Vassica though, is aside from the continental map entirely unmapped, so the ones I make as we RP will be the first frontier break! Yay!

Edited
Okies so instead of just completely remake the character, I will keep the appearance of the chara and edit only the personality, background and skills, if that is okay?

I had lot of other character ideas but because of my lazyness, I will slap 'em all into one and make this one it.

Neijin, just tell me what is good and what's a big no no, and I'll edit them.

Hm. Well, usually I'm not much for throwing in opinions on how people should make their characters, but when you're asking me for it I might as well go all out.

First of all, long ears. Not okay, I'm afraid, since that just makes her look like a: some sort of alien or inhuman thingy or b: a crazed buddhist monk. And EWARan elves don't have anything near those, either, so I suggest you just go for a traditional look, or at least something much closer to it. Gomen~ ^-^;

Secondly, midgets.
You'll have to realize that you're dealing with a society that, in terms of these things, think in ways that are like ours some two or three centuries ago. With that in mind, man-dwarves - meaningly, humans of small stature, not half-dwarves - are simply freaks of nature; while they may be human genetically, their appearance suggests otherwise, and is likely to bring a huge "Wtf!?" from the Quarmotians. If you're ready to RP with something like that, then I'm fine with it as well - but if you don't think you can pull off RPing with such a naturally prejudiced character, or something, then you should skip the midget-act. You could of course make her very, very short, but in the eyes of society full-grown females are not below 150 cm, with somewhere between 160 and 175 being the norm. But naturally, it is ultimately up to you - I'm just trying to max up the RP experience...points ^-^;...for everyone.

Thirdly, what exactly do you mean with "Regeneration"? And if I don't know what it means, I can't really judge if it's power level is OK either.

Fourth and comments in general: After reading the cooking thing I thought, "OMFH, it's Raine!" for some reason, and lulz were had. Just add some sort of mechanical- or even better archeology-mania to it and you're all set XD Also, Deka-ribbon for awesome. -w-
Also, to fill in your blanks: you say "Somewhere in Haldera", so I'd say probably Alcir or Waterhill. Alcir lies just at the edge of one of the many valleys of Sakrim Lardomni's mountains, and Watergate is a small village further north, right in the middle of the mountains and on one of the highest plateaus - thus giving them great mining resources. While Alcir holds two of the nation's bigger military garrisons and training camps, and thus has a need for weapon supplies constantly, it is a little bit too big to be called "small village"; Whilst Waterhill is a small, windy village located just at the head of Haldera's biggest river, the Mienrun, and has control over the ancient, huge flood gate that controls its flow, fostering some unique abilities.

And before I'd never thought of a Halderan wearing a Kimono, when I think about it, it fits in pretty well, huh. ^^

So if I make her look like she'd be a little kid? Make her 120cm tall, so it would go well as a kid.

Okay, normal ears then.

Regeneration, as like some mystical way of wounds healin bit faster than normal, noting like regen from fatal wounds. Only small cuts and bruises.

That Deka ribbon doesn't really seem so practical.
Archeology? hah, sounds good, *adds to the list*
Can she has a fedora hat and whip then? just joking...
Waterhill sounds good, if thats the place with the mining recources?

The kimono thingie isnt the final design. Might change that.
Btw, what is the clothing "fashion" around the world?

You just made one right there, buddy ;)
Thanks to the recent invention of artificial chemicals for coloring, people counter the bleakness of the desert with bright and flashy colors in blue, green, red and yellow. The commonfolk don sand-colored clothing in Vassica, and in Haldera dark-green and gray is the most ordinary. Black is used almost solely for the military and royalties, and due to the abundance of minerals sewed-in metal or metal cloth is quite common, even in the lower classes.
Silk is an extraordinary rarity, that you can get your hands on if you're lucky and rich, and happen to catch a shipment of it - otherwise there is lots of cotton farming round the major lakes, giving the somewhat overly warm wool a good competitor. Expers in Haldera also use synthetic materials at times, when they succeed in making them. City people around the continent also favor the Tesh, a small piece of cloth draped around the lower parts of your stomach, just above or covering the beltline, and covering one's butt. Robes are quite fashionable in Peltair, especially among women, and many are lined with metal ingrams and such. Dresses are somewhat out of fashion, and only the old stickups still use them among the nobility, Finally, the Temple Order of Haelfyre have a loose dresscode of black, red and orange, and masking for all higher priest/esses; Whereas the Church and Knights of Luthar have paladin-style white, steely silver and gold, with some black for the Knights.

...and I just made all of that up in less than 5 minutes. -w-

Oh, I'm an endless source of questions.

How are the metals in this world, I mean, do we just call steel steel or does it have some other name.

And the rare metals, like gold would be one of the most expensive or is there something even more expensive like Mithril or something?

Post by: NejinOniwa on March 17, 2008, 06:27:05 am
Actually, a stream of questions is the best thing a bored author can get XD

Gold, silver and coppers mainly fill the roles of coin metals, and also as trading stock in raw form. Mineral names are the same as ours, at least in Imrish - in Nimaxari and Vassican Nimaxari however, they have different names (naturally, since it's an entirely different language).
And the equivalents of "magical metals" such as Mithril, are different alloys that either through treatment by science or Ra impregnation has attained certain abilities. Pure scientifically modified materials are extremely rare in Quarmote as of today, but even more so are the Magitech Alloys, since their existence is unheard of and not in the least understood. The "rare metals" used in common mechanics however, are materials such as Wolfram, Lead and other Rare Earth minerals.

So I can assume that they got pretty similar Periodic table compared to the real world?

So more questions.
How is the flora and fauna?
You don't need to make a list about the whole world yet, it would be enough to know what kind of animal world the area we are at moment is populated with.

And what kind of calendar system are they using, like in, do they got 7 or 10 days in a week? 24hours in a day? What's the progress in astronomy?

Language, in what stage are they in literature? Blockprinting?
Arts and culture?

Oh this is getting silly.

Post by: NejinOniwa on March 17, 2008, 01:15:34 pm
Silly, my boi? Not at all! I'm just getting started, over here - I haven't even gotten halfway into the linkage between science and magic yet, so don't be saying hey yet!

The Periodic table is pretty similar, yes. To make it easy, and yet hard, for me, I've been constantly trying to link together the pieces of the puzzle between our physical laws and the principles of EWAR - it gives me some free ride, but it's also one hell of a work making up magic-stuff that works with our laws of physics - or at least most of them.
Granted, there are some changes in both names and minerals, but essentially the stuff is the same.

Literature is a pretty advanced process by now, and since a few years ago all Halderan military reports are made on a standard-issued typewriter. Not field reports, of course, only those made in base, but still. As I said, the world at large is around 17-1800-ish, so yeah.

And the Arts & Culture department - well, that's a bit of a problem. Someone once made up the idea of Opera, but everyone hated it, so now it's just a singing practice. Theaters are quite well-seen, but exist only in the larger cities - where they do, though, spectacular light shows and some extraordinary Special Effects can be seen in usage, though.
Fireworks are pretty advanced as well, but due to the lack of gunpowder or any reasonably good equivalent they are fueled with pressurized Hydrogen gas or organic variants as Methane or Propane, which of the former is produced only in the ancient Flood Gate of Waterhill, by unknown procedures - and the latter are taken out of organic distillation processes as byproducts, or distilled out of imported petroleum. The trouble with the fuel thus makes fireworks a very expensive thing and an extreme rarity, but the massive amounts displayed at yearly festivals such as Reld Tide (midsummer) and the Midwinter festival Eldara Uvéni Ëlithein(which translates roughly to "Burning the Shining Fires") makes them a spectacular and exciting rarity for the citizens. The process of coloring flames is well known, though - for example, the southeast watchtower of Osinia, Seastower, burns its lighthouse-like flame with a blue color during the whole winter.

The calendar system is roughly the same as the corrected Gregorian calendar - based on an older system from before the foundings of the Quarmote kingdoms, the 365 day year is divided up into twelve 30-day months. The final 5 days of the year are assigned no month, as they are literally "moonless"; neither moon, nor sun rises over Quarmote during the deepest midwinter, during which not even the southernmost parts of the continent gets to see any light at all besides the stars and the brights fires of Eldara Uvéni Ëlithein, which are held during these pitch-black days.
Days are measured in 24 hours with 59 minutes and 60 seconds each, but AM and PM is replaced by the Zenith/Midnight system, Which is parted as such: 00:00 - 05:59: Midnight & Past. 00:00 is midnight, with anything after that being x hours and x minutes past midnight, just as normal. The last 30 minutes are sometimes changed to "x minutes to morn shift" instead of 5 hours and x minutes past midnight.
06:00 - 11:59: To, Fore & Zenith. With 12:00 as Zenith, x hours and x minutes to Zenith makes up this stretch. As said before, though, some refer to 05:30 - 06:30 as "morn shift hour", and give it past and 'fore as for that.
12:00 - 17:59: Zenith & Past. Same rules as above, and "eve shift hour" falls between 17:30 and 18:30.
18:00 - 24:00: To, Fore & Midnight. Same rules as above, and "eve shift" between 17:30 and 18:30.

Astronomy is mainly used for charts at sea, but those are pretty advanced - and the observatories on the high platforms in Sakrim Lardomni, the Hilt and the Watcher's Range give excellent positioning statistics for the entire year. The Heliocentric model has been in use for the entire lifetime of the three nations, and some observations of other planetoids in the close vicinity have given good ideas of how the world cycles around the sun and functions on a cosmic level - however, there exists no real big interest for astronomy as a science, and it is still mostly viewed as a tool for navigation at sea and land.

I think I mentioned that a few posts before...but what ever. -w-

There are different coinages for each nation, but they differ little in value - and due to the abundance of metal, the coins are almost always made in pure coin metals as silver or gold, with no alloying process. The Halderan Crowns are somewhat heavier than their Vassican and Peltairan counterparts, though. More on that later, but I have to go eat dinnerz nao.

Yeah, the reason beliza didn't reflect that has to do with few things.

One, as Smokey had already posted about Crazy ox's actions, that made it feel like it had already passed some minutes after the accident, therefore beliza might've already reacted to the thing without it being described.

Two, Beliza isn't really the type of person to lash out rage at other people, more likely just get grumpy and even more sarcastic about things or something.

*Gundam Wing theme plays in background for no apparent reason*

TEH DEMON IS BACK, IN FULL FORCE  ;006

So let's get this party started for realz.

While gone I've been writing on the EW story, and doing some major editjobs on the existing parts. I'm also thinking of how to integrate this stuff into the story itself, and if I get lucky we might see some of them characters around Luthisport halfway through Book One. Frankly, this has been the greatest boost to my writing since I started - I owe you all lots of thanks for getting me up and going again. Really, I do.

Anyway, to answer Smokey-kun's question, today's rant will be on Fauna.


RANT MODE!

Being a continent largely made up of deserts and mountains, Quarmote has  some pretty distinct wildlife.
I'll let you in on a secret: Quarmote wasn't originally like it is now. Once it was a frozen land, ravaged by Glaecim's twists of mood and the Raevaesh storms. And with little life having been "imported", there aren't much animals that were natural to the environment from the beginning. Indeed, most of Quarmote's wildlife are the results of man-ipulations -w- on the wildlife that survived the very, very swift environmental change that the continent went through - Cactae, for example, are extreme modifications of Fir trees, bred to survive in desert grounds.
_____
*temporary break*
MISAO FUKK YEAH!!!
*nosebleed rocket*
Er. Sorry.
_____
As a result of most wildlife being man-bred results of what previously was arctic resemblants, you won't have to worry much about poison. While there doesn't exist much stuff that is dangerous to humans by nature. Cactae can of course be pointy, but that's another thing.
Anyway, the most interesting flora is yielded by the deltas and wetter lands such as the Halderan south. There are few big forests on the continent, but smaller ones spot the coast and riverlands like dots on a leopard. Quarmote's trees aren't very special for the most part, but the abundance of some of the rarer species such as Red Talpfer - famous for its ever-crimson leaves - the silver-leafed Talmian’s Lament, the dark Tulevin and the Coronet Oak - one of the biggest tree species in the world - make its leaven forests havens for much wildlife and also, very pretty. That is a stark contrast to the great forests' stark miles of nothing but Fir - the Corkan Forest is quite close to Tolkien's Mirkwood in moodyness - and the ranges of twisted, stickly, bush-like Fyelborch covering the mountain plateaus, fighting against the wind from birth.
One mentionable rarity, though, is the Ashwood tree. It is small, rarely over 4 meters tall, and its stickly branches yield only a few, dark-green leaves. But the wood itself is worth more than its weight in gold - the coal-black ashwood is very light, very durable, and thus an ideal material for construction of smaller mechanisms or longbows. Its characteristic smell of burnt charcoal also keeps it from being popularized among nobles, and thus exploited and turned extinct.

Damn, this rant didn't get very far. But meh. I'll continue tomorrow. Until then, folks, POST ON! LET LIVE THE THREAD!

Naturally you haven't.
Nimaxari is the language I've written single-handedly for EW and EWAR, with the runes being the language's own alphabet. They're really handy - but then again, it's necessary, with Nimaxari phonetics being what they are.

There you have the reason I didn't get any high grades in French - on my final test, I even accidentally substituted "blanc" for "shiroi"... >_>;



Anyway. While we're on the language topic I guess I should inform you of the language status in EWAR. Most of the world uses the modernized Imrish language (which is what in the books, and here, are written as English); This includes Haldera and Peltair. Vassica, however, is sort of like France in their ability to speak other languages than their own. Most Vassicans only speak their native Nimaxari-va, or Varis as it is called among the locals, fluently - aside from those living in the more connected cities and routes (such as the Pilgrimage route, the Capital and the port cities) most locals can only speak a few words in Imrish understandably. Again, think France.

I almost forgot about this RP. But don't worry people, I'll be back in the RP very shortly.

I'm kinda pressed for Time right now though, so I'll have to leave a comment in the RP itself later.

Greatz! Now all the players have come back to life! I'm overjoyed ^-^

Also, I must say I wasn't entirely truthful to you guys before. I haven't finished the entire storyline.
Or, should I say, hadn't. Actually I finished it with some detail planning today during my break at work today ^-^; What looked like a burned-out Nejin taking a nap on the crew room table was actually something ENTIRELY else. Yes, I'm fuc­k­ed up ^w^;

There might be a rant later tonight, and/or tomorrow, since I've got an extra day off school - but as I mentioned before, maths studies will come before that then. But until then, I'll just tell you this - you're up for one haelishly far-fetched chase. Bye for now!

Now, anyway...

Looks like we're moving pretty slowly. I'll try to open it up a bit, but please - if you've got an idea for a post, post it - as long as you avoid double posts - as it is now we won't get anywhere. Also, I'd like a bit of Roll Call before we move on to the next stage - all active players, report in, either here or in the Ingame thread, so I know we're on (if someone's dropped out you can say that, I just need to know so I won't have to mess with my calculations inbetween).
Also, Toki - how do you plan on getting away from the inn? Because I need to know whether you'll be happy or mad at me if I make something up ^-^;

Anyway, the sooner we get away from that damn inn, the better. Intros are always boring, but I think I can manage to speed this all up quite fast if we just get on with it.

Scaringly enough, when I was in the US last summer, almost half the people I met thought I was a girl - despite height and no trap mode. Even the steward on the damn British Airways flight to N.Y. was all, "Would you care for a refill, miss?" and I was like, WTF IM A GUY!?

Also, on dishes. Most vegetables and stuff exists either in normal or cactus mutant form. In the latter case substitute the first 2-4 letters for ca-/cac/cact,  like cucumber -> cactabre (ok, spelling change, but whatev) - or potato, which is grown in both normal and mutated form, which is called sand potato. The latter is in stock.

As for meats, either pick something cow-ish or chicken, or take something like the Hegren. Hegrens are basically pseudo-domestic ostrich-like desert birds that make good food.

Maybe, Im not sure yet. I really should come up with some desing that would suit her best. IMO this design covers too little when you think that where we are now is a big hot deser(?). So maybe some light cloak is needed... hmm hmm...

I really need to take some time to think about that.

WAT, COFFEE!?
DO NOT WANT!!!
*Nejin is a tea-person*

First I thought, "Big hot dessert? I thought we'd just ordered our food!"
Then I realized what you were talking about, and that I'm - as always - too damn tired for this shit.
Alas, it's as you say, but not...right now. It's currently a few weeks past midwinter in Quarmote, you see. That means roughly 2 hours of sunlight daily, and the temperature stays at a quite comfy 25 degrees (well, relatively comfy at least) during the dark hours, with a peak at some 30-ish at zenith. Summertimes can peak over 50 degrees in midday in uncultivated areas, though, and since the sun's up almost all day long it normally stays over 30 degrees at all times; with the exception of the high plateaus and mountains, where cold winds can draw things down below 20 even in midsummer. The coldest place on Quarmote is Sakrim Lardomni in Haldera, with the coldest temperature ever recorded there being 10,4 degrees, by the head of the Icy River on the South Plateau's lake - as you can understand, the normal rule of "deserts are cold in the night" don't apply to Quarmote in general, for reasons confidential. Wait, I'm ranting now again, ain't I?

All in all; Nothing in that design covers too little for wintertime Quarmote, as there's virtually no sun to shield yourself from at all - but when the summer - or the vernal equinox, even - comes, you'd better get ready, and pray to Haelfyre for the Expers to have invented sunblock. ^^

Now then, I need to get working on my captain boy again. AYE!

Just wondering, since with summer over, I at least have returned here again, and it seems at least some of the pieces necessary for this puzzle are present; Is the RP still not-dead-enough to bring back to life? If so I could think of ways to flip things up a bit (Fastforward YAY!), otherwise it'll just die out. I'd like to know before I try making any worthless efforts.

Who said anything about cold weather? Cold weather is AWESOME, because otherwise wearing a suit is impossible without overmafuckmaheating yourself to death.

Also, if anyone of you ever get an opportunity to bath in ice-cold water (and then I literally mean Ice-Cold, as in a small hole in the ice wherein water is liquid and fukken cold), DO IT. It feels MAJESTIC after.

Been there, done that, was AWESOME, but requires a visit to a 100'C sauna to give it the maximum OMGWTFBBQ AWESOME feeling.

Finally, someone who agrees with my view of the world! Yep, cold weather is awesome. Not only for the snow and skiing, etc, but also because it's actually possible to wear a suit without overheating like a computer without heatsink or fans! YAY!
That said, glow ball warming is teh sux... -_-


About the RP: It seems we're about 4-5-ish, and more might trickle in. That way the RP works fine - I just have to get my act together and speed up the whole process more than just a bit, in fact. That way we'll actually get somewhere ^^

So, as long as those here stay we'll be fine, and if we get more people on the train that'll be damn good as well.

WHY HELLO THERE THREAD REVIVAL HOW YOU DOIN'


A short announcement.
In the spirit of blatant ripoffs, I have written a story (or half of it, at least) based on the histories of Crazy Ox, and with small modification (that is, she never really got to the inn), Beliza (EG Smokey and VDB's characters). It's pretty much Crazy Ox' one-man mutiny against his band of nomad warriors, and the such, possibly including some backstory as well.
IF WANT, I will translate.
IF WANT, please tell me, or I will do other things first.
