    Not sure if this is a bug or not, but I used to have access to the back entrance of Loreroot (acquired from the wishshop)  I no longer seem to have this ability and I wasn't sure who to direct this to, so have lodged it here.
     
    Thanks for your help in fixing.

    Having been like my esteemed brother in arms, Lucius Tarquinus, am one of the founding members of the alliance. Together we have seen many changes in the realm. Much has been uncovered through the efforts of the members of the Children of the Eclipse and many festivals enjoyed by the masses. Evolution is a strange thing and as we grow we see the world from a whole new angle.

    The moon was once found and shone in a darkened landscape but, the code was lost in the sands and minds of a few now departed. The moon, though hidden to many has inspired a strong following as has been alluded to. We did not shrink from membership but were forcefully ejected and not permitted to return.

    Instead we chose to stand tall for our faith and what we represented: respect, loyalty, ethics, honour and all that is good in people. I would throw my ancient weight behind this petition. Ever have we been steadfast to our faith and cause. The badge was but a symbol of our dedication. We shall continue, in anonymity if necessary as it was in the beginning, but would be all the better for being known in the realm.

    Hear us as we give thanks O'Goddess.
    Help us to find within,
    what you have shown us without.

    Open our hearts that we may deliver
    on your promise of peace,
    through the just treatment of others.

    The we uphold the rights
    of the downtrodden
    and be their champion.

    That by our deeds you shall
    be known as a gracious,
    and benevolent Goddess.

    But whose wrath once awakened
    is a mighty foe
    That will not be set aside.

    Teach us to love others
    in the face of their indifference
    or hate.

    Strengthen our bodies
    that we may always
    serve you till our final days.

    Accept us now, O Goddess,
    your humble servants
    To carry your word to the unremembering.

    My heart gravitates to her,
    My skin radiates in her light,
    My being pulsating in her presence,
    She is the one who reflects all that I am

    In her shadow I walk,
    Traversing space and time,
    I am versed in her mysteries,
    She is the one who enlightens me.

    Bathed in her radiance,
    She bestows life upon me,
    Lifetime after lifetime,
    She is the one who restores my soul.

    The waves of her tide beckon me,
    Gravitating and pulling me closer to my destiny,
    To walk among the stars,
    She is the one I serve eternally.

    O, wondrous Lady of the Moon!
    How radiant is your face that shines on me
    in silvery rays that lavish my skin in silken kisses.
    How wonderful you are,
    Great Mother Goddess,
    that hath given beauty to the Earth,
    that hath showered it in Love,
    that hath given your Priestess the Power to walk in your footsteps.

    O Radiant Mother!
    As the moon penetrates me with its magical light,
    so do I sing to you!
    Your Love hath given me Light,
    and your Strength hath given me Magic.
    In the light of the eternal Moon
    do I sing praises unto you!

    Blessed is the Crescented Lady,
    Mother of Life,
    Giver of Magic.
    Blessed is She,
    my protectorate,
    that watches over me!
    Blessed be!

    In evening's silent passing
    I wait upon thy greeting
    To usher in the nightfall
    And shelter souls a-sleeping.

    I sit beside the lake-side
    Observing thy reflection
    And gentle lake-waves glisten
    And grant to me direction.

    I gaze upon thy splendour
    So radiant and charming
    Yet thou art mine defender
    So vigilant and calming.

    So asks this one thy blessing
    To weave the threads of wisdom
    To understand thy bidding
    And sing to thee thine anthem.

    And cleanse us in thy moonlight
    When shadows fall upon us
    And grant to us thy foresight
    Thy loving and thy kindness.

    Thy light were overshadowed
    In morning's timid peeping
    But still thou art my vision
    O'er all things ever seeing.

    Having been like my esteemed brother in arms, Lucius Tarquinus, am one of the founding members of the alliance. Together we have seen many changes in the realm. Much has been uncovered through the efforts of the members of the Children of the Eclipse and many festivals enjoyed by the masses. Evolution is a strange thing and as we grow we see the world from a whole new angle.

    The moon was once found and shone in a darkened landscape but, the code was lost in the sands and minds of a few now departed. The moon, though hidden to many has inspired a strong following as has been alluded to. We did not shrink from membership but were forcefully ejected and not permitted to return.

    I will be honest. I have not been active recently, but I was absolutely disgusted to log in and find that the once 30 member-strong alliance: The Children of the Eclipse, the thing that I and so many others had put so much effort into was disbanded...

    Due to lack of members?

    Was there not a request placed by Pipstickz to the Council to have the member count reduced so that it could be returned to us?

    I have chosen to try one last time.. to give one last small effort toward regaining our alliance.

    I petition that the Children of the Eclipse be returned once and for all to the members who worked so hard for it to be what it had been. Please post if you support this effort. I know it is a stretch, but I believe that there are those in the community who would want to see the Children of the Eclipse alliance revived and returned to it's founding members.

    Please post if you support this effort.

    Karak reacted to Tarquinus in Petition: Return of the Children of the Eclipse   
    There has been some frustration among CoE players about the loyalty mechanic and some negative undercurrents in the MD community in general. That said, I think Lord Pip's coup did much to awaken us to our disconnection from the game, and more importantly, its "reality". I am not talking about "roleplaying", as much as I like it, but about the nature of MD as an experience, as allegory, and as a means of communicating in a different way from what you usually find on the Internet.

    In my view the CoE still exists. It doesn't have official status (i.e. a badge), but it started without one. Several people have shown that they still believe in what the CoE stands for, and I think it is time I came out of my semi-dormant state to show my support.

    But this is more than a matter simply of popularity. There are two issues: belief and focus. As to the first, we believe in fairness, the sharing of knowledge, and the development of [i]character[/i] - not in the sense of a character in a game, but in the sense of a person's ethics, behavior, and beliefs. As to the second, I have felt for almost a year now that the CoE has needed to change its focus with respect to the reality of MD as it has been revealed. We will show you entertaining (we hope) characters on the way, but I think we should examine what "the moon" means to MagicDuel and why the sun never sets. The CoE is not a collection of cultists devoted to a rock floating in space.

    For a time we were the largest alliance in MD. There's no reason that can't happen again. I fully support Amoran's petition, but I would like to say that I appreciate the idea that changes happen in MD because they are earned.

    Congratulations to all the questors, remember there are still 5 silver coins to be passed on those uncovering the resting place.

    I find it deplorable that such a paragon of the realm be subjected to the ignorance and harassment of an individual with acknowledged power.

    It is also sad the a priestess of the Moon is so besmirched by an unbeliever and lover of the sun. This is clearly an effort due to fail to besmirch all our priestesses.

    I think a reward is suitable but based on active days rather than anniversaries. As activity is more an indicator of commitment.

    As for alts, perhaps if it were permissable that under a system of honour we could link our alts to our main account then elect which alt between them recieves the WP garnered by the main account.

    This system, to be successful, would rely on others not abusing this linking to target alts or devine another's purpose for playing multiple identities, particularly those who convincingly play alts that have not had their common owner linked.

    [font="Trebuchet MS"]The Moon has long been served by the dedicated and devout. In this realm her place is largely forgotten and many newlings walk the realm without memory of her touching our realm.

    A quest has been set forth for all knights of valour and honour to find that which has been hidden from the Sybil, the Goddess's earthly connection, the Moon Chalice. For the Sybil and her priestesses this chalice holds the key to greater communion with the Goddess.

    A short while ago a small portion of wine passed my lips and the Goddess took her avenue to instill in me a vision that continues to haunt me to this day.

    [indent][font="Arial Black"]There was a crescent moon, a bloodsoaked cloth, a dripping blade, an open grave and a stairway.
    And a command burned into my soul: "Find the key my faithful servant."[/font]
    [/indent]
    I have spent countless hours in study and the time draws near for a gathering of those who seek either for personal glory or for faith to join together and set out to recover this lost relic.

    As the time draws near look for messages or calls to arms that will signal the great gathering and blessing that will be required to ensure that those who seek the chalice have been blessed by the Goddess.[/font]
