  1. [quote name='Novato' timestamp='1292684161' post='75671'] This question could look like very stupid. However, a lot of things is write about Role Player and I still don't understand what I think it's essential to just THINK about take side of rebel or not. What are Rask's politics for Necrovion? How it's different from Jester politics? I don't want to be rude, but just say that it will change is not enought. I can only see the most superficial effects of the current politics and, personally, I don't see what's wrong. I am NOT taking sides here, but I think that the most important aspects are hiden and maybe it's one of the reasons that only few people are interested by role play.

  2. [quote name='Fyrd Argentus' timestamp='1292595899' post='75624'] Thank you for that story, Rask. It deserves more than a pickle, but that is all I have to give. I will leave the slot at the top open for a story on current events. [/quote] Thank you. Your kind words is reward enough in this case. It was my pleasure to tell that story.
  3. [quote name='(Zl-eye-f)-nea' timestamp='1292539818' post='75602'] If it were me leading the rebellion, I would not be doing things behind curtains and in the shadows.[/quote] I just want to voice mt agreement. I find all the behind the scenes activity hightly frustrating and discouraging. It is not just with the rebellion either. It is little wonder that the world seems dead, if no one is willing or prepared to do what they do for the world to see.
  4. My Mother told me the following when I was still small... "I met the Rajj, your Father, during a time when he would spend day and night in front of the Howling Gates, either meditating, or telling stories to those who wished to learn. I was drawn to him by his stories, I would spend countless hours lingering near him, hoping to hear more of what he have to say. Then came the prophecy..." My Mother had memorised the words of the prophecy, and repeated them to me, but I can no longer recall what they were. In anycase, it was how her life became bound to my Father's. "One I will enslave, he had said... who else could he have meant, except me, who is already a slave? There were some drama before the Rajj chose his wives, but they seem insignificant now. I do not know exactly how long I served him, sitting by him day and night in front of the Howling Gates. I watched him tell stories, and I even repeated some of them myself. All seemed well, but I could tell he was becoming troubled. A burden was slowly being placed on him one which he did not comunicate to me. Then one day I followed and watched him as he went into Necrovion, claimed it all as his own, and crowning himself 'Rajj'. Thus came the Desert." Now that I think about it, such a fantasy was so easily created, and passed on... Even to this day I could not forget the Desert. But, back to my Mother's story... "The Desert flurished, the Rajj came to adopt the ritual of washing himself with sand. It was also a great pleasure when he would allow me to perform the ritual for him. It was also not long before he started talking of Heirs, and was also Crowned by the Shades as the First King. In fact, it was the first Crown in all of the lands. Three children he adopted... Marvolo, Peace, and Malichi." I suppose at this point, my Dear Sister, Peace, and Brother Marvolo could each tell their stories... My Mother never told me what happened to Malichi. However, she did tell me how I came to be... "I do not know why the Rajj desired further children, were the adopted ones not enought to fullfill the prophecy? Nonetheless, he wanted children from the womb of his wives, and so I obeyed. And in time, you came into the world, my Dear Rask, named after a famous man from my old world." Unfortunately, I never knew my Father. It seemed that he had disappeared into his Desert before I was born. My Mother have always spoke fondly of the Desert, and my Father, but, she could not hide the sorrow in her voice... "Life went on in front of the Howling Gates. I continue to sit at the Gate to the Desert, and it is now I who tells the Rajj's stories. As I watched my belly swell and felt your strength growing inside me, I wondered... He told me to live, and so I do... But what do I live for, when the man who owns me no longer calls my name? I think, he had wanted one of us to take his place, to bear the crown... His three wives, three adopted children, and two babes yet to be born... Yet, he left us too soon, I don't think any of us were ready..." Often would my Mother talk of the hopes she had for me. She said that while she was a woman and a slave, born to serve and obey, I would be a man and raised to be a ruler. She told me that she wanted me to be as a wild beast, unrestrained, independant, and proud of my own strength... Sometimes I wonder if she regrets raising me the way she did... For I left her, when I saw the way she would stare at the sky, waiting to die, I left her, to find my Father's Desert. I will not speak much of the time I spent in the Desert, challenging the merciless sands. It is enough that I survived, and stood again at the Howling Gates. It was to my dismay that I saw the land my Mother so loved fall into desolation, with a neglectful King holding the crown, and the people milling about as an abandoned herd. And so I declared my presence, and began my quest. I still labour toward the same goal now, as I sit in front of the Howling Gates, as my Father did, and as my Mother did. Much have happened since my arrival, but I believe those are not my story to tell...
  5. [quote name='Jester' timestamp='1292449118' post='75520'] "Using alts to increase the number of rebels of a land will be punished" I read that, but it didn't say anywhere that its not possible. For example, you're not supposed to use alts for adepts and worshipers, and it will be punished, but its fairly easy anyways and I haven't heard of anyone being caught. Be realistic, if its possible, people will do it, whether or not it will be punished. As to the issue of a person having two active roles, I don't think that's very limiting. How many people do you know with two completely separate characters in all of MD? Not enough to make it a deciding factor. "Having 100 alts rebelling will achieve next to nothing towards overthrowing a king. There is no need for an alt limitation on rebels." If there was only the 100 alts this would be true. What if, however, there was a difference of only 10 people between the members of a land and the Rebels? Alts could make a huge difference. Also, think of people from other lands being recruited by members of the Rebels in another land. Someone in Necrovion could ask someone from GG to make a simple alt, have them act interested in Necrovion, log on for 30 days, and then rebel. This whole situation is far too easily abused for my liking. [/quote] Considering that the rebels do not have an automated system for dethroning a King, then anyone who used alts to inflate the number of rebels to a significant extent will come under the scrutiny of either Mur or the Council. In which case, they will most likely be found out and punished, with no damage being done to the position of the King. If you are indeed worried about the potential impact to newcomers, what I said should be enough to reassure you. On the other hand, if your concern is merely for keeping your crown, I would suggest that you try to live up to the expectations of your position. You would not have to worry about rebels if you were actually an active and dutiful King. I would also point out that in your initial post, you are essentially threatening to punish innocent newcomers for your own unjustified paranoia.
  6. From Mur's announcement, dated November 11, 2010: "Using alts to increase the number of rebels of a land will be punished" If you have time to complain on the forums, Jester, please at least fix the Necrovion Land Laws page.

  8. [quote name='Rasiel' timestamp='1291531607' post='74456'] According to me, i hope you do not think me ignorant just because i am young. If there is a tie Jester will judge the two papers. [/quote] It is your quest, so it is your right to judge. Thank you for the answers.
  9. [quote name='Rasiel' timestamp='1291531265' post='74454'] It will be judged on correctness. [/quote] Then the question becomes: correctness according to whom?
  10. Perhaps the criteria for winning can be elaborated? Will it be judged on correctness? or will it be judged on thoughtfulness?
  11. [quote name='GlorDamar' timestamp='1287274088' post='70478'] Ha... you mistake my meaning young one. I meant no blessings upon you, only an observation. I mean to oppose your ascent as I did your father's. You'll have to get creative if you mean to take up his mantle... I know his old tricks and I have no need to keep your secrets as I kept his. [/quote] I was told, the true measure of a man is in the calibre of his enemies. I look forward to meeting you in the field.
