Messages from the Enclave / Mayoral Proclamation
« on: June 21, 2018, 07:34:02 am »
Friends,

Of course I shall be running for the position of your Mayor once more.

It's not fair to leave you in the hands of the swarming reprobates and scum who think they have the balls to keep this ship on the straight and narrow.

Have any of them fought and won battles single handed? No, they haven't

I half expect that idiot, the self-proclaimed Duke of Corruption to file his paperwork, and campaign for shitbaths and vomit soup for all!

Netherese Library / Re: Blackstone research (any DM)
« on: June 06, 2018, 10:12:20 am »
A library steward replies as follows:

- Former groups of knights or adventurers, who officially served to some land or kingdom, of which already extinguished or broken, with clear reference to its members or the region of which they lived. Includes groups from the silver age, or before it. Among references, possible groups such as Eternal Flame or others new or strange names that may arise during the research. With or without relation with gods or noble houses.

"Can you be more specific, please? There is nothing on the order of the Eternal Flame within our collection. A member of House ReSchotti was looking for something similar a short time ago.."

- Legends or stories about lost or fallen deities or entities, plus any reference to influential people of the past, who have some sort of power and command post, without necessarily being directly addressed to some noble house.

"This is somewhat of a vague and longwinded request! Is there anything in particular you are looking for..?"

- A detailed study of the relationship of the dwarves and the present noble houses, looking for historical references to the names of dwarven clans associated with current or former noble houses.

"Nobody has seen it fit to detail such a topic I am afraid. Why not speak with members of the houses first, again we will pay well for such information I am sure - can you be more specific?"

- Careful study of everything she can find do about gnoll beliefs, especially those associated with the Dukarrus caravan attack happened some days ago.

"Sorry, we don't carry any information on the detailed background of how gnolls operate. They are monsters first and foremost, though! And nobody has given us any information on such recent events! We are a library, we do not deal in current affairs unless someone presents us with the information"


- Research on legends, rumors or stories (even children's stories) made available in the library about important figures in the past, whether real or not, folk or not, of the human race, dwarf or elf.

"We have plenty of children's books, from "Grumbo The Mad" to the "Rhymes of Bispin Crisp" - again what are you looking for specifically?

- Careful research on the isle of the sauros, seeking to know which people, or even the noble houses that lived in the area, and what caused the invasion in the region.

"There are no books on the isle at present, feel free to write one and we will pay you for it. We hear there are strange things in the old keep, however, and plenty of riches to be found.."

// Basically library research should be about more specific stuff rather than "can you tell me lots of historical people", and events that happened a few days ago wouldn't have made it into the library in such a short period of time.

Announcements / PCs in Multiple Factions
« on: May 31, 2018, 07:36:29 am »
As a heads up if you are only allowed to be in one faction per character you're playing (so your Skettus character can't also be in Reschotti and the Arcanist Guild at the same time)

If you are intending to be a spy in another faction you need to drop us a note / application, and to keep us updated with anything they want to steal / spy on and why you're doing it.

Also if you are playing an alt please don't have them join a rival faction to your main character. It becomes very messy with crossing over information and can lead to unintentional metagaming, which is never fun for anyone.

As always if there are any questions give one of us a shout

Cheers.

Groups & Concepts / OOC Stuff
« on: May 17, 2018, 10:02:47 am »
A place to discuss / suggest / recommend and advertise your group concepts (for example you want to start a group of highwaymen and are looking for people to kick it off with you)

All stuff here is OOC, and you should try and also recruit IC as much as possible once you are up and running!

Setting Information / Re: Faction: Knights
« on: May 09, 2018, 06:40:15 am »
The doors to the knightly keep are now open to members of the following faiths:

Amaunator - Led by Templar Marshall Bresbane, Order of the Everlasting Light
Jergal - Led by Grand Master Jareth Solent, Order of the Pallid Mask
Jannath - Led by Warden Kyra de'Pont, Order of the Red Rose
Tyche - Led by Chaplain Horace Madden of the Priory of the Pure Mind


There is also an aspiring knight, a Thomas Rayne of the self-named "Knights of Rayne"

If you want a bit more information on any of the above come and speak to me or another DM.

Concepts relating to other faiths will be looked at on a case by case basis, however the above have NPC support within the faction.

If your PC does awesome stuff they can, of course, earn NPC support. So go and bring the awesome!

General Discussion / Pick Pocket, a discussion
« on: April 23, 2018, 12:20:19 pm »
How can we make the use of pick pocket interesting?

Should we just disable it?

Should it be on a timer?

Should there be things you can't PP?

Open to suggestions!

« on: April 22, 2018, 12:55:18 pm »
Some perks and positions on Netheril: Age of Magic require an application. This is mainly so the DMs know what characters in factions want to do, as well as letting us know that players of certain sub-races know the ins and outs of the particular "creature" they are playing:

The Noble Houses

House Reschotti - can join as an Initiate without an application
House Skettus - can join as an Initiate without an application
House Dukarrus - can join as an Initiate without an application

Thieves Guilds (plural) - Contact a DM to discuss a concept.

The Swords of the Lady - open to other faiths, contact a DM to discuss

Church Membership - Official Clergy can be applied for on creation, also able to earn the spot IG

Special titles / names - Lordships can be earned IG, or applied for on creation. Other positions such a family members of current Houses, and cannon organizations can be applied for

Prestige Classes - These are to be earned in game through roleplay and activities, and can be applied for during a character's life. Contact a DM to discuss.

General Discussion / Player Handbook Discussion
« on: April 13, 2018, 03:29:55 pm »
Sorry, I should have locked that thread so people couldn't post in it!

If you want to discuss the content of the player handbook do so here!

So from what I understand the server takes place during "The Golden Age". But according the the brief history...

The Gnome's were liberated during the Silver age. Specifically 1472 as stated in the Gnome race description. Though remain treated poorly it makes no reference to them being slaves.

am I missing something? Did they get enslaved again at some point?

I've heard this mentioned by people in Discord, how would people want / expect it to work?

What features would you want to see from something like that?
