Re: Mages and confessions

The difficulty is the OOC right to an OOC opinion about Lore does not give your character ICly the "right" to that differing opinion IC against Order PC leadership. Opinions differing from the standard set by the Order leadership is heresy. I agree with that sentence, but in subtles way, I believe ...

Re: Mages and confessions

That's also my interpretation of the sentence. But the idea I am willing to promote in that matter is that when it comes to compare helpfiles or discuss subtelties, it should be considered there's not one unique OOC truth, and that differing interpretation of the Lore are possible. And I think that'...

Re: The Stranglehold of the Holy Order

"Actually, I DO find the Order scary powerful and oppressive." Do other people feel that way?
I do, that was mentionned in my first post in this thread.

Re: The Stranglehold of the Holy Order

I am agreeing with Deadhandsome on the desastrous side effect of IC blackballing on the Order's population, and the motivation of seekers.

We could have racist priests/knights, alcoholic ones, or simply characters who do not make consensus on the player base.

Re: The Stranglehold of the Holy Order

> No good Davite admits to being a mage and then doesn't turn themselves in to the Inquisition. Well, that kind of sentence is an inquisitorial interpretation of the lore. There are other valid interpretations: - though the mage is a good davite, and knows not being pyred will make him become a demo...

Re: The Stranglehold of the Holy Order

What do you believe is the correct way to consider the Order's situation? That question might be the correct one actually, since from the point of view, the opinion may differ. I would personally ask "Is the order RP enjoyable for everyone?", and I'd answer it could be more enjoyable: - For what I ...

Re: The Stranglehold of the Holy Order

Hello alls, I'm the player behind Helena, Cerise, and Purity, three acolytes who did not manage to become priestess. Is the order a powerfull, broadly oppressive regime? I can't judge from the outside, since all my characters were orderites. But from the inside, I must say it is very oppressive. Act...

Re: From OOC Discussion : Opening Up Southside.

I'd be happy to see southside become more lively. Not only because I also think it's a great place to RP, but also because northside's RP would benefit from it too. > Absolutely agree with you on the splitting of the game! While there are some things in there that I don't personally agree with - lik...

Re: From OOC Discussion : Opening Up Southside.

My feeling is that it is only the hazard of the current existing characters which make a place lively or not. 10 months ago, southside was lively enough to find RP and build stories there. My feeling is that with some IC efforts, freemen will easily come more often in southside. That being said, I'd...

Re: Blackballing

(I'm posting links because I had a hard time finding them) I'm not on discord, and did not feel any bad atmosphear in the game, so I'm not sure of the extent of that problem, and can't comment about that. The review on mudconnect is, in my opinion, more detrimental to its author than to the game. An...
