    Travelling egg

    The egg used to reside at Winds Sanctuary. It was quite happy there aside from some people persisting it should be turned into an omelet. These people enlisted the help of the Shades to try and achieve their evil goal. They, the Shades of Necro, sucked the souls out of hundreds of Aramors thus leaving them empty. Using a strange floating stone they twisted these souls into an energy beam, which they shot at winds. But their aim was slightly off which caused the egg to bounce away and luckily it landed on this tiny island in the middle of a lake. The reason it didn't break as well its floating is of course residual soul energy used in the shot. Some of which it must have absorbed. From this its easy to deduce that Angien are one part aramor, one part shade and one part parsley which the pre-bellians prematurely added to it in anticipation of their omelet.

    The Oak Moon

    Apparently, the word 'druid' is related to 'door'; as such, a druid would be either a gate-keeper or one who opens doors...can someone confirm the etymology? If so, the 'keys' would be magic formulae and incantations, and so I got to thinking of compiling a tome of such keys for use in rituals. Such formulas always occult some kind of knowledge. So that's the task. Create magical incantations (it's usually verse, which translates to 'rhytm' more than 'rhyme'). Deadline is 'till next Sunday. If there are enough, we can compile a tome. The selection process will be supervised by Loreroot elders. Each accepted formula will get you silver, while the best ones have a chance at anniv creatures, gold and spellstones.

    Weaponry of the Land

    Howdy MD! As it's the anniversary, a time of celebration and commemoration, I'd like for us to take a moment to reflect on things that may have been forgotten by some folks. The premise is simple: I want you to do some research on Land Weapons and send in your findings. For transparency's sake, I plan to make all entries public after judging is complete, but if requested I'm willing to redact parts. So without further ado, here are your research prompts, use as many or few as you like, but I do expect some details from each prompt to be in your submission, even if you don't directly address the question. However, the final two are mandatory. What is a Land Weapon? How many are there? Where are they? What do they do? How are they activated? How are they powered? How are they controlled? What would happen to it if a Land were to lose its Weapon, or access thereto? For each Land that contains a Land Weapon, imagine you are a citizen with full control over the Weapon and explain how you'd use your Homeland's Weapon to help your fellow citizens. For each Land that contains a Land Weapon, imagine you are an infiltrator who has seized control of the Weapon and explain how you'd use it to disrupt your enemies. Some might say this is a cheap data-mining attempt, so to offset said cheapness I'll be personally sponsoring a Tainted Angien, to be rewarded if: 1. There are at least 10 entries, each with at least one interesting idea in them. Doesn't have to be original, but it must to be interesting. 2. The judge(s) determine that one entry stands above the rest as particularly insightful, well-researched or creative. So now it's an expensive data-mining attempt! Take that imaginary critics! I'll also be sponsoring a pack of Molima-related resources, which includes 5 glue, a skull and some garbage, maybe a couple others (I need to check what he costs again to be sure, will do so once I return to the mainland), as well as one History of the Elucubration Creature item (I promised this item to Zleip as a sponsorship for one of his quests in the past, but that was years ago, so I'm invoking the statute of limitations. Sorry Z!). These rewards will go to either first and second or second and third, or may be distributed differently, pursuant to possible further sponsorships. NOTE: It seems the History of the Elu items aren't working...I hope they're fixable! I'll make a bug report. Speaking of which, other sponsorships are, of course, very welcome! Entries are to be forum PM'd to me. They can be as long or as short as you like and may include images if you wish to do so. Anybody willing to help judge would be greatly appreciated. The only prerequisite being that you have what you consider a good baseline knowledge about Land Weapons. I'd like to specifically request Chew or Mur to help judge this (and especially to help redact the published answers!) if either of you have the time/energy, but if not we shall make due! If nobody wants to be a judge, I'll instead write up some criteria and have each participant mark other entries, and average that score with my judgement on the same criteria. Get crackin', folks!

    Thy quest, this anniversary, were one of simplicity - and I affirm that simplicity and elegance were key. Give form to the above winged-being, with guidance proceeding: Of its lore, one paragraph. This should be consistent with the above story, although thou'rt encouraged to elaborate further, with artistic licence. Points shall be awarded for well-written lore, consistent with the aforementioned tale and of its character in combat. Of its character in combat, one sentence. The statistic, nor the vitality of such a creature were of little consequence - this sentence should merely explain of a single unique ability. Points shall be awarded for elegance and simplicity, as well as how it may usher a change in the present strength of rituals. Of how it doth change combat, within the realm - one paragraph. I do note quite the preponderance of rituals that do use the Freeze-Aura, and I encourage those that enter to think of how one may counter a multitude of Freeze-Auras, that may restore balance to combat thereof. I do note that presently, the Anti-Freeze-Aura were in fact nullified by the Freeze Aura, if one doth freeze the holder of that aura, and thus it were presently an inadequate counter-ritual. Points shall be given for the following: - How it may counter rituals with multiple Freeze-Auras (especially if one canst counter it without making those rituals stronger, if one doth add this new creature to it) A small bonus shall be awarded if there are interesting interactions with currently existing abilities of the realm. I should like to offer a Lorerootian Root Warrior to the best entry, although I would that those who do give rewards of the Anniversary of the realm should appropriate a prize in its stead. Entries to this competition shall be open to the end of the Anniversary. One may enter multiple times, of which the best scoring entry shall be used.

    How can you know there is a connection if you cant think what they are? Im a bit confused because that justification could work for anything. How do you know? ---- An example is: Personal opinion with no fact: I think angiens are linked to necro Personal opinion with fact: I think angiens are linked to necro because on the gate you can clearly see an angien carved. The difference is one is a guess/theory (And theories are good, so no issue there) but it isnt backed up with anything. The second has a backing, it doesnt actually explain much more than the first but shows you have thought about it and did some research (and found something). I think these kind of posts, if they are to work, need to start with "Here is something I believe, here is some reasons why I think its true, Do you have any opinions" because it shows you arent just asking for answers and opinions (which may have taken much research and time to reach).

    Unlucky essays

    I say 'unlucky', but i hope otherwise. This is a writing contest, in which you shall answer 5 questions with 1-2 paragraphs for each, something like a mini-essay. where to post? Easier to do it here, since i shall publish them here at the end even if you send them to me any requirements? Yes, I want two things: clarity (as opposed to 'mystical') and feeling (inser the 'i' in there, feeling is as important as reason) Rewards? An anniv creature for the best overall submission, teleport to pc, earfocus, mirtorit, sendtogazebo, voice etc spellstones, whatever else of interest i have and you want judge- this is important; you might not want to enter this knowing that i will be the only judge. I have a reason for this time for completion? A week from tomorrow Now, for the questions: *The idea of 'living your life' ( having great fun - a hedonistic view) occurs naturally - and it seems obviously correct. But i found a definition of happiness which says 'happiness is a good flow of life'. To me, these two are in opposition - which one am I to adhere to? * greed brings misfortune - all warn against it, few resist it. Taking two steps back, greed appears to be a stimulating, animating, natural mechanism that moves things (killing in the process). Are we supposed to run from it, fight it or love it? * it seems to me that the more you lie to others, the more you start lying to yourself. And the more you are sincere with yourself, you can't help but being so with those around you. Is that so? If it is, instead of demanding 'the truth and nothing but the truth', we'd ask for honesty with the self. The result - an onest society in general, with a few exceptional liars. * ibelieve we all know the truth. We can't spell it, but we know it. The motionless sea of knowledge, the infinite wisdom at a fingertip, from which we extract small incomplete truths..but if we know, deep down, the truth, what is the value of this: amicus plato, sed magis amica veritas. * there's a book that claims god (mkay) made man rule over the earth (or the creatures of the earth). I don't know...the more you live, the more you notice how all species figth eachother, how ours is just another, strong against certain, weak against others. But, when a (barely alive) little virus can wipe out easily thousands...what am I supposed to think of people who insist 'we are superior'?

    I want to see both more cooperation and more conflict between lands. I'd like to propose that lands/kings should be able to implement toll roads (or bridges/gates/doors/ports/etcetera). On attempting a movement to another scene the player would be prompted to pay the toll, if they decline they are denied access and remain in the same scene. Payments should go into land treasuries. This would be a pretty powerful tool, but other lands could respond in kind or even declare war. Hopefully we'd end up with some treaties preventing certain tolls. This concept could be expanded in that "Location X" requires the possession of "Item Y" without actually requiring that item to be given up. Any thoughts?

    As the title says its a regular Hangman style tournament with a few tweaks. You have a Sick patient and you need to save him!! What do you have to do to be a part of it? Register! Post your Player name and Player ID here in the thread to get registered. The registration ends on 18th of this month at 11.59 ST. Then you will be pitted against each other. So what so you do in this game? 1. You gather 3 words for 3 rounds for this game. Each word should've been mentioned somewhere in the MD Wiki. It should be less than 15 letters in total. Can be a set of multiple words like 'Marind Bell' but should be less than 15 letters in total. The word should not be a player's name and should not contain any special characters in it. 2. I have my 3 words. What next? You will go against a player selected randomly for 3 rounds per player. Before the start of each round, the opposing player will send me the word by FORUM pm. I will present the word to the attempting player to guess. For example, if the opposing player gave me the word Marind Bell, I will present the word to the attempting player as - _/_/_/_/_/_ + _/_/_/_ The attempting player will Guess one letter. For example 'L'. Then I will mark all the L's in the word and present the letter as _/_/_/_/_/_ + _/_/L/L If the person guesses a wrong letter, For example 'Z', It counts as 1 strike against the attempting person. Each player gets upto 9 strikes in total over all the three rounds. 10th wrong attempt will mean the game will end irrespective of how many rounds are remaining. Unless you have certain Tools. 3. You mentioned Tools! What are they? Each Player will get 5 tools to help them out during the course of the game. They are: 1. Murder: Kill the Man Instantly. Can be used by the opposing player at any point of the game. Attempting player loses the round instantly. 2. Slice off a Limb: Can be used by the opposing player at any point of the game. Adds a strike from the attempting team's total number of guesses. After the round is over, the effect gets canceled and the original strike count is back into consideration. For example, if the Attempting player has 8 strikes will now. And the opposing player wants to slice a limb off, the total strikes of the attempting player will increase to 9 for that round and the next mistake means he is out of the game. However if he manages to complete that round, his total strike count goes back to 8. 3. Xray: The attempting player can use this at any point of the game. Select one empty slot. All the slots with the same letter in the word will be exposed. 4. Antibiotic: The attempting player can use this at any point of the game. Their strike count reduces by one for that particular round. After the round, the strike count gets back to the original count. for example, if the attempting player has 9 strikes, they can use this tool to reduce their strike count to 8. after the round the strike count will be back to 9. 5. Philosopher's Stone: attempting team instantly wins the round. Can be used after the player gets 10 strikes to win the round as well. This can also be used to continue the round after the opposing player uses the Murder tool. And vice versa. The opposing player can use the Murder tool right after a player uses the Philosopher's stone tool. Each tool can be used only once by one player over the course of the game. Effect ends with the end of that round. 4. You explained all those BS rules which I probably wont understand till i actually play the game, but you never told me how to win!!! The person winning the maximum number of rounds wins and goes to the next stage of the tournament. 5. Ok.. But What if there is a tie? I will give the tie breaker word. The chance to guess the letter will alternate with each guess between the players. The first person to guess the word wins. The person with the lesser number of strikes gets the choice to choose whether they want to go first or second. If there are any unused tools left, they can be used in the tie breaker as well. I know it sounds a little complex, it'll be way easier to understand once you start playing! 6. WAIT A MINUTE! YOU FORGOT THE MOST IMPORTANT PART! What about the rewards? Apologies. I almost forgot. If there are 5 or more than 5 players, there will a wishpoint for the first place and 5g for the second. if there are less than 5 participants, 5g for the first place and 3g for the second. The plushies and anni crits sponsorship will be decided by the TKs. Good Luck! Let me know if there are any doubts. TO REGISTER, PLEASE STATE YOUR PLAYER NAME AND PLAYER ID BELOW IN THIS THREAD. Participants: Aia del Mana Jubaris Ledah Bayek Pipstickz New player *Lintara* MRF Ivorak Mallos dst Round List: So after randomisation and stuff I came to this : A. Bayek Vs Aia B. Mallos vs Jubaris C. Ledah vs New Player D. Ivorak vs Pipstickz E. dst vs Lintara F. A vs B G. D vs E H. C vs F I. H vs G. (Finale) So we need to finish this by 24th of this month. So that I can host the grand finale on 25th or 26th.. Whichever is more convenient. P.S. I understand That F has to face an extra round of combat than G. But that was also randomised coz I cannot find an alternative and it has to be like that :|

    Ann. 4456 - [2018-04-18 01:06:15 - Stage 13] - Permalink - Posted By Chewett 0 likes Like The Mystery Tournament 3 - Experience the illusion rework for yourselfBeing able to run a tournament requiring specific creatures has always caused issues for those who do not keep a stock of them. Therefore for a long time now I have been planning tournaments using the illusion system. Before these were impossible due to the poor state of the illusion system. After the rework that has occurred over the past months I have been able to get it into a stable state where you can be given a number of creatures to fight with, preleveled to whatever you need.It just so happened that Sunfire appeared at the right time with his tournament and has graciously agreed to help test them out. If you wish to use them and want to participate in Sunfires tournament you will be put into an illusion mode and be given a range of creatures to use.A small reminder: This will be the first large-scale test of the illusion system since I have reworked it. I have done extensive testing locally and so far had no issues with it. If there is an issue with your account after the illusions please contact me and I will endevour to fix it. I have taken numerous backups to ensure I can restore any lost data.This first test will only be giving you illusionary creatures, the second steps will be to modify stats however it is not currently safe to do so. I am going to need to disable access to the illusion system after the test so I can safely remove people from illusions they are currently in. Until this is done I cannot push out the next illusion changes.For those participating, you might notice a new creature in the illusion setup, cid 65.

    what you described sounds more like a paid visa to me some of my own thoughts: implementing a "fee" for resources (base resources not what you get out of the processors) that are collected in that land (through trade or with tool) and then brought out would be more like a toll you could make "free" quantities: people that collect less than X amount dont get a fee noob protection: people with less than X AD have a smaller fee example: player A enters Land C with X herbs, collects herbs in Y quantity and leaves the land with Z Herbs, the difference gets calculated: more than the "free" amount: the fee gets calculated based on Y and taken from Z, player A leaves with Z-fee less than the "free" amount: no fee, player leaves with Z with jump to leader, leashes or other jumps you could also try to "smuggle" stuff out since you dont use "proper ways"

    Sure, if implemented a certain way, things like you suggest could possibly happen. If implemented another way, they won't. Aside from that, Kings have in the past been given authority to affect AP cost on their gates (Ann. 1949, 1950) and the AP cost of all scenes in the Tribunal were raised under similar but separate authority (Ann, 1884) So, while this isn't exactly your extreme example, it comes close and it's already happened historically.

    In memory of Awiiya, I should like to play this same game, this anniversary of the realm. Yet, the common citizens, of which I were also, oft cannot perceive time as trees may. Hence, I should think to play it in a shorter period of time, yet without losing the patience and resilience that it doth nurture. The rules for such a game are as follows: I possess, presently, a flag, which at any time, may be taken from myself by another. For one to take it, she must post within this thread, as a reply: "I, (name), have taken the flag from Aia". For example, if Lintara were to take the flag, she would say "I, Lintara, have taken the flag from Aia", and if Shemhazaj were to take it from Lintara, he would say "I, Shemhazaj, have taken the flag from Lintara". One should also quote the previous holder of the flag. However, as one doth grasp the flag, as with saplings, one's branches do lignify, that thou canst not reach out to take the flag again, once one has held it. Thus, within this Forum-Thread, one may only take the flag once, and thus may only post within this thread once. One should ask, what were the purpose thereof? Ah, but if one canst hold the flag for twenty-four hours, without another taking it from them, they shall win this contest. As this were not a game that doth require great effort, but merely one of great patience, there shall be but a single prize for't, and that shall be to the one who doth win. To prevent alternate-vessels from partaking in this contest, one cannot participate if one's player number were 259394, or greater. Additionally, existing alternate-vessels may not partake of this contest. Alteration or revocation of a post will be treated with disqualification from this contest; however, if two people do manage to take of the flag at once, the last to take of it shall be the one in possession, until it is captured anew. I shall sponsor a Pimped Grasan to the winner, unless the Treasure Keepers do decide to give a reward in its stead. This contest shall run until one were declared victor, even if it doth pass the end of the Anniversary.

    Masks and characters

    In a few hours' time I'll give the start for the contest, I am announcing it so you can be prepared (it being a speed contest). The task is to find out 10 MD characters' name, by looking at masks. How so? Each of the masks below is decorated and each decoration has a coresponding letter (from the english alphabet). Once you garher all the letters of a mask, you must form the word. Also, each of the letter has a corresponding mini riddle - example: letter J would be named 'a cane' (all our letters were drawings/ideograms at first, so look attentively). Send the answers via forum pm. This is a speed contest, with the first two who make out all the names getting an anniv creature.

    Hey hey all, it’s been a while! Back when I started, I began to collect old avatars that I loved the look of, had a bit of history and generally didn’t want “wasted”. Now that I’ve been gone for a while though, and will only be back gradually, I think it’s time to open up the vault and let people take their pick. I’m not necessarily looking to trade these (though may choose to), feel free to state here or in pm (forum please) which one you are interested in and why, this will act as your “bid” I guess. If I feel like it’s a good bid and the reason is sound then it’s yours. If I don’t think the reason is great then it may come down to a case of trading...but I’ll try to be fair.

    This month's contest has ended and Ledah has won after returning 3 heads! Congrats Ledah. The point totals for this contest was as follows: Ledah - 216 Aia del Mana - 180 Fang Archbane - 108 Pipstickz - 108 I am changing the scoring process to hopefully emphasize a bit more activity (fighting) required to be able to win. Points per head given = 12, points per head returned = 24 (both down from 36). In light of this change and applying it to previous contests the overall point totals are as follows: Aia del Mana - 337 Ledah - 108 Fang Archbane - 72 Pipstickz - 72 Nepgear - 36 Signups for the next contest are welcome as always. I am going to reduce the amount of players required for the extra rewards to 5! That is, a wishpoint (one for mp3/mp4/mp5 upon reaching 5 signups) and a swordsman creature (to the first mindpower to hit 5 signups) to the winner of the contest. Two gold coins will be given to the winner of each mindpower level, unless there is 5 signups for a mindpower level in which case it will be given to second place. I will give an assortment of herbs to the winner of mp5.

    Golemus Golemicarum & Necrovion

    I would like to add mine thoughts to this discussion, although I cannot claim to be of Golemian or Necrovian descent. While I had never had opportunity to visit the Island of the Gateway myself, I had heard that there doth lie upon it an Aramor Assembler - such a landmark doth not exist upon the mainland. To assemble an Aramor within this construct, one doth require many resources, and one who were able should then obtain an Aramor Fenth, that may create eight Aramors. I would wonder what doth occur when one attempts to construct an Aramor, but without all the required resources. Perhaps, if one were to assemble one without a Fossil, or without a Crystal - the resulting Aramor mightst be formed, yet incomplete. If I do recall, Golemus were an island that had many constructs, of many scientists. Mayhap, the Aramor had been one of them - one that had taken many iterations, until one had stumbled upon the correct recipe that were within the Assembler today. If such a scientist had attempted to construct an Aramor, but had not known how to do so, mayhap, an Empty Aramor might have become. I do note that the Empty Aramors do wander Golemus, bound to none, while all other Aramors within the realm were bound to another being, as a creature of allegiance. Perhaps it were the absence of the soul that were bound - thus making one an Empty Aramor - that thus doth make these unable to be bound in the same way. Thus they mightst be fated to roam the island for eternity - as they cannot be sacrificed at an Altar. Of the Shades, I cannot claim to have expertise. Yet, I believe that it may have been Khalazdad that had once studied them, and found them to have been formed of imbalance. Perhaps it were the eternal cycle of roaming of the Empty Aramors that doth bring about the eternal roaming of the Shades, within Necrovion - for the imbalance that were formed of an eternal being, never to return to naught, must bring with it another. In another realm, one mightst consider the presence of matter, and anti-matter, that were formed of one another. Mayhap, this were the Shade and the Empty Aramor - a soul without a vessel, and a vessel without a soul.

    Golemus Golemicarum & Necrovion

    So...you're saying empty aramors are shades that have been changed somehow and in reality they're searching for what they lost and that 'thing' is in necrovion (i.e. the stone of twisted souls might restore them)? That during their invasion of golemus they became empty aramors and are now forced to roam the land? But, what were they looking for in golemus in the first place? And where were the 'viking' ships built - on the mainland?

    In a utopian MD with more activity, perhaps the chained quests concept could fit nicely with this; imagine tiered quests, starting with one a newb could complete that rewards land-specific resources, leads to a more complicated quest that requires or suggests you to pay a toll to access a certain place the price of which is a resource gained by the first quest, leads to a more complicated quest that could end in citizenship? Also - perhaps as a player gains more cartography, tolls lower naturally? Or maybe volition? I'm not sure...maybe even land loyalty, though presumably citizens get through free, I dunno. But that could help prevent full closure of any location. Dang it, foiled again! Good thing I didn't put 100%! I almost did

    Tolls

    A25 has all the tools needed to implement this very well. If I remember this from years ago, then at the moment it should be even better and easier. You can literally create NPCs to receive items and 'unlock' scene arrows, etc (and a lot more). The only thing I can't recall is whether this is player specific or not. I think if one person pays the toll, the scene would unlock for a short time for every player, not just the one who paid. But I'm sure that may possibly be implemented too. That said, I love the idea.

    Masks and characters

    (Decoration-letter) Eye 'bags' - a pencil's top Extra set of teeth - a snake Third eye - a ladder Arrow piercing - a line taking a 90 degrees Love in its eyes - zorro sign 13 in its eyes - levitating over a pole Double nose - bow with no arrow Small moustache - a caterpillar in motion Big moustache - a pipe Earring - a shoe Nose pierce - half of a 4-leaf clover Wrinkles - more than half of an hourglass Hair ( two hairs) - potential raisin...missing top Cheeks - tau cross Colored eyes - coiled rope Alternately colored teeth - a lizard's mouth Eyebrows - a cave's mouth This is bound to give you troubles, but visualize! Extra hint: there are two names of four letters and two of five. And now, the masks:

    Mystery tournament III

    I have signed up with no clue about what creatures I have that are untokened. Not saying that will change your, or other peoples minds, just saying.

    Alt Problems Yet Again

    For clarification and this isnt Chews fault, as hes a rather busy wookie, all previously reported alts of mine are still considered alts. This means we can not trade, fight, adept, etc, for the time being. Im sure itll get fixed some day so, no need to worry my dear Aia.

    Unalting

    Thanks Chew! A few more specific questions if you have the time: Player x and y were considered alts but are played by different people. Time passes and neither requests unalting. It's possible they'd be unalted regardless? And what if y requests it but x does not, would x be notified if the request was granted? And thanks for trying to help, Fang. I was more interested in the general answer, not the implied specific case that I wan- ...I mean, my friend wanted to know about...

    Travelling egg

    Can't say, i have to read more. The question i want to answer is basically what causes the creation of a system in which parts maintain themselves. Like, tge sun has the earth gravitating around it, the earth has the moon diing the same. Gravitational fields exist (and fight), yet there is no conglomeration; the collision didn't complete. So i'll have to read about the moon, i suppose, i hope i'll find a site that explains it in laymen's terms. (Maybe the structure of an atom is similarto that of a solar system, in which case i could read about the atoms instead...not sure)

    Travelling egg

    I did a little bit of reading and thought about updating the topic...no definitive conclusions I was reading on some site that although Newton's and Einstein's equations work, we don't know what gravity really is. Brilliant, right? On another site, I read that if we think of gravity as attraction, we're going nowhere. And it might be true. This might be the wrong example, but a stronger man will be accompanied by weaker underlings, whether he wants to or not. Is it really attraction here? How exactly does that happen? But then, if the equations work, then gravity, being a force, is g=ma, where a is acceleration. But a means the object is accelerating (moving). In a system of two objects, you either have them moving against eachother, or in the same direction, but in both cases, for gravity to happen, we're talkibg collision, right?

    Golemus Golemicarum & Necrovion

    It was shaping into quite some theory there hehe...but for all it's worth, i still haven't heard of a connection between nc and gg, stated loud and clear. It still seems easier to look at the lands first and then at creatures inhabiting the land. For example, in the cube, the two aforementioned lands are on the same side. Or, if you look at the old man's land, you can see a gate of sorts; and the cryptic poem talks about a road that leads to a deserted land (which one??). ...but i have no theory whatsoever...so i'll just question others' theories

    Research clues should not be shared publicly. Let's try to keep in mind " Shades rule the obscure side of this world, ballancing for all that is oposing them." Balancing is not the same as "Mirroring" someone mirroring my actions would be, depending how you define mirror, either doing exactly what I do, or doing an inverse of what I do. Balancing something is not as simple as inverting the actions of what you're trying to balance, it requires that you have knowledge of the system as a whole and act in a way that preserves the integrity of the system when such actions that you are balancing is disrupting that integrity.

    Golemus Golemicarum & Necrovion

    It's a bit confusing, tbh...you said shades are whole, while empty aramors aren't - doesn't that make empty aramors some kind of shades? I thought Nc shades decided to invade Gg (since they are at war) - that's how i looked at that statement... Now you're saying they come from the island? Does that mean shades inhabit the island as well, not just necrovion? And tiny men, too? What's the relationship between tiny men and aramors, if they came on ships built by tiny men? Friendship, loyalty, contract? They don't seem to mingle in Golemus..

    Golemus Golemicarum & Necrovion

    Isn't their connection to the land an effort to give said land character? If we assume creatures to be various manifestations of the psyke, they were 'added' as an extra layer...or not?
