I look forward to this ancient evil finally being destroyed, for good. Kevralyn Soulfire Matriarch of House Tul'Draka Wed, 24 Apr 2019 20:47:32 +0100 Subject: Upcoming Vote on the Valleys Role - by: sarahb While there is much that lies in the proposed implementation, there are some things that would seem to merit advance discussion before such a vote. It is my understanding that the Valley have been responsible for writing and updating the Laws of Orin Rakatha since this role was passed to us around the time of the Cataclysm. I also understand that the Valley has generally sought to do this in a relatively benign way, in part perhaps so that others cannot claim we have been misusing the tool to benefit our own ends. My further understanding is that the Mystics must then act in line with these Laws. If any of this is incorrect I would appreciate clarification. Given that the proposal is to devolve power in a distributed way, what would be the anticipated impact of how the Laws of Orin Rakatha are updated and maintained? Are we proposing Laws could be modified by a committee of Nations for example? All Nations? The Nations to whom the Oracles are associated (such as the Shadowsfall and Fortress of Pentar)? If this accountability transpires to be something the Valley no longer wishes to have, it is still our duty to ensure that any transference of power is done in a responsible way. This should strongly include consideration of how others might seek to misuse or take advantage of any future arrangements to their own ends.

Sun, 21 Apr 2019 22:21:58 +0100 Subject: Menagerie Sector Site Visit - by: bambam Lucy It does look like it’s gone quiet over here, to be fair I sent Caradac a message over four moons ago and I’m still waiting on a reply now ! Maybe I sent it to the wrong personality :) Looks like drinks back over the tavern it is then. Maybe we should pick Twighlight up on the way that fellow always has some interesting stories or information to divulge. Sat, 13 Apr 2019 19:13:58 +0100 Subject: What is going on around us an open conversation! - by: andyreagan Driedyn It is nice to meet you also. The list I gave was my personal list and I will detail why I feel they are there as I get time. I am sure others will have a very different view as you do and I respect that. It is useful for us to debate this because it allows us to share information and maybe find some common threads to explore. As I said I am have been out of the loop for many years and have essentially little information about the Fortress of Pentar other than what I have gleaned from speaking to people in recent weeks. I understand that Nations are made up from a myriad of people each with their perspective on what their nation stands for. As I said I am still learning but for some reason they are choosing to make war with us. I guess when you have different factions there will always be a power struggle within as to whose agenda will be prosecuted by the Nation as a whole. From my experience people who deal with Hepaths play a very dangerous game not only for themselves but for those around them. I am happy to say that maybe not all or even the majority of the Fortress are "chaotic" but some certainly use agents of Chaos to augment themselves or to do their bidding. I dont know how much information we as the Valley have about them or their history and political situation but it does give me cause for concern when a portion of their nation actively court using Hepaths. I have never met Kiara but I have met and fought the Dark One when he wielded that axe when it was tainted by Chaos. I have no idea of how he resisted that taint or even if he did. I do hope your faith in Kiara is well placed. Given the current taint of Hatred on the axe and Kiara's desire to follow Law it is an easy step to see how that desire could be fueled by Hatred. I am not saying it is but Hatred can be insidious and subtle when it needs. I think it also interesting that this talisman of Law is once again being actively put in a place where it can be exposed to Chaos. I just wonder about the bigger conflict between Law and Chaos and what it means for a weapon of Law to be tainted / corrupted by Chaos. I guess my fear is that I don't know and we have allowed it to be put into that jeopardy once again. Briefly why the Concillium is a threat in my view. Ever since we arrived on Orin Rakatha we have been in conflict with them over our ability to teach magic. I believe they still want to have a strangle hold over who can cast magic and want to control people through that medium. The current Chancellor has a personal grudge against the Valley and he currently has significant resources available to him to apply pressure should he wish to. The Dymwan Well I have lost count of the times we have been in conflict with them since our arrival here. I will agree currently things are cordial but this is a personal view I dont trust them given their track record of deceit and at times desire to destroy swaths of people on Orin Rakatha. Please dont think that is about a good / evil. Those who know me will confirm I have no issue with evil casters I dont particularly like necromancers but can tolerate them if need be. I do know Tornado so I have to trust that his actions with the Cadre are in our best interests but I am genuinely wary about it. I hope that make some sense of my concerns and look forward to continuing this debate. Melkeron Fri, 12 Apr 2019 09:03:31 +0100 Subject: Althea / Dunstan - by: andyreagan Hello Cirith I am still trying to catch up with how things have changed since the Cataclysm and my return to the Valley after spending from what I understand many years as the Oracle. Sadly I remember little of what happened. What I am after is some information about Nodes as I understand it we need to go to magic ones on a regular basis to renew our ability to cast magic. I could be wrong in that. I have in my years come across power nodes to various aspects of the spheres so do we need to do that also? If we do where is the one aligned to the good sphere? Melkeron Thu, 11 Apr 2019 09:03:38 +0100 Subject: website observation - by: robb Drow are OK in my book, I have fixed it :) Sun, 07 Apr 2019 13:31:29 +0100 Subject: Impeding group dispels? - by: sarahb I seem to recall being purposely blinded so someone could follow up with a dark engulfment so I'm assuming that you need to see it (rather than 'feel' it)? Flash is a weaker spell than blindness though I assumed the dispel on the cryostasis was perfectly fine :) Sat, 06 Apr 2019 04:26:23 +0100 Subject: A new report - by: sarahb Ligner Larrsson has prepared a report of the "Where the Wind Blows" mission (with the decisions around the Temple of 4 Winds) that is available here: Tue, 02 Apr 2019 07:22:24 +0100 Subject: The Making of Magic. - by: adrianbaker A very big thank you for all the Monster support on the last event it was needed and appreciated. Jordan's cackling Witch and Rob's moaning Ice Node monster ;-) , loved seeing the Floppy Hat wearing WC Mage played by Mike and being thus ignored as a pleb. Loved Matt's Mist Shaman and Ian's being a Thinking Hordeling, oh and Neil on loudspeaker as the LoX Announcer!!! I bet the chainsaw tree surgeons that we saw later must have had some weird feelings about the announcements :-) Big thank you to Ant and Jennie for the wonderful food. Thank you to all the Crew, the Refs and my fellow party members - The Witch-Hunters, also a frozen Vilk hunchback doing Bane 8!!! Mon, 01 Apr 2019 00:27:02 +0100 Subject: Aether Town - by: sarahb Further to the earlier declaration, I would like to update on the following: The Darkbringer, Guildleader of the Black School of Magic, has been confirmed as the Director of Magical Research within Aether Town. Shard Farsight, Guildleader of the Grey Wardens and Chief Advisor to Lord Quicksilver, has accepted an offer to reside temporarily with the Labyrinth of Xenos over the next six moons.
