Re: Suggestion: Bardic Right of Invitation into Ahalin

Physicians of a certain rank and above would also, arguably, be a good potential source of RP. That might be trickier as depending on what is needed (IE actually coded healing/treatment versus just RP stuff) as actual face-to-face might be required in some way.

Re: Mages and confessions

On that note, I honestly feel like this recurring unending phantom fear of not wanting to do X thematic thing because Y might happen is getting to be all but crippling. The shadow of doubt at other people's motives on the OOC at this point has taken away so many things (Top Ten Activity names, displ...

Re: Mages and confessions

We can't control how other players choose to have their characters view our characters — and, sometimes, we don't grasp how we come across. I would humbly argue that this is a difficulty we are currently struggling with as a community and have for a time. Wherein when people aren't seen/understood ...

Re: Reversing the Autoguildings

RPing something that started as a bug is a bit awkward because some of those scenarios suggested might lead to negative IC consequences for the GLs and/or the applicants from no fault of their own.

Re: Mages and confessions

How arguably is a Priest or Inquisitor knowing some one is a mage and "letting them get away with it" long term not some form of collusion or consortion? Because it's been argued any form of knowing repeat communication with a mage as an Orderite is problematic if not heresy or worse. But what ultim...

Re: Mages and confessions

But it doesn't help when order leadership tend to have differing interpretations. So let's say you are a priest during one GI, and they held a certain interpretation, however in comes the next GI who interprets it differently. Creates a bit of a problem. I'm not sure that's different than any chang...

Re: The Stranglehold of the Holy Order

The Cardinal has maybe spoken up on something as frequently as 4 times in the last two OOC years I've thus far hesitated to wade into this thread, for a number of reasons. But I think the difficulty if there is one, arguably, with the Cardinal as a vehicle of staff intervention isn't in them being ...

Re: Mages and confessions

What I feel is needed, is that inquisitors don't use their IC power to lock the Lore to a single interpretation, IE don't begin to believe that their interpretation is the only acceptable one from an OOC point of view. I think there's a lot of confusion about the IC and OOC line here. OOCly people ...

Re: Exotic Pet for Each Race

Do we imagine pets like things people would bring around town with them or pets they might keep in their house? If the question is more what might be thematic pets for each race - I might propose. Vavardi - I can personally envision Vavardi keeping songbirds, it seems to fit the culture. You could g...

Re: From OOC Discussion : Opening Up Southside.

How does the Order know a seeker is a mage? The reeves that a seeker is Brotherhood? The Bluebird Bouncer that a freeman dressed in silks is not gentry? These are all minute details cast to the side for the benefit of code and/or theme. I'd argue ICly those things aren't known to the -players- in q...
