Valtharal

Personal
Descriptions: 

For a half elf, Valtharal is actually quite elfish looking for a half elf. His tall and lithe body combined with his rather prominent ears likely giving many people that impression at first glance. Though his ever present stubble is one of the few indications that there is more to him than it seems at first glance. Said stubble and the bags under his eyes are two of the main things that keep him from being downright attractive. Though, he is certainly nice on the eyes even with that fact.

On the subject of eyes, his own are a rather piercing yellowish color. When hit by the light at just the right angle one might even think they shine. Though that is likely down to how the light reflects off them than anything truly out of the ordinary.

His right arm is usually wrapped in tight bandage like cloths which go from just below his elbow all the way down to wrapping around his fingers. Though the reason for this is unknown, as he seems to have no real trouble using the appendage.Even still, the fact he tends to wear long sleeves means the most folks will see is the parts on his hand.

Compared to all of these things, his black hair and olive skin seem rather mundane actually. Though that seems more a side effect of so many things sticking out as uncommon.

Vaxia - Winter Solstice/Tournament of Champions

Forums: 

Its that time of the year again when Ramsalon hosts its yearly seasonal all get out celebration in the middle of the harsh winter.

There will be fighting, there will be games, and there will be fun.

ATM the date is tentative as it is understandable around this time of the year things can be hectic.
Also we may break this up into several days depending on the signups and such.

As per the usual there are 3 main competitions:

Brawlers - no magic allowed
Sorcerers - only magical abilities can be used
Free for all - anything goes!

You can have as many characters in as you can handle - though XP will only be award once (either all to one, or split evenly). Any prizes earned will go to the character that earned it.

When signing up please note the following if interested in having in this celebration:

Which competition on which character
mini game(s)
Gambling
Entertaining
other ( a wild card if you have an idea to pitch!)

Alternative dates or if slow post is desired.

Remember the sooner you give this information, the better planning we can do.


Just a quick tally

Competitors

Sorcerer's

    Stephyr
    Azura

Brawler's

Tournament rules update
Considering since we now put all characters at an equal power level to ensure the fights are not one sided, this has created a tendancy for some fights to drag out.
In light of that we will be introducing 2 new rules for the tournament:

  • There will be a ramping environmental damage factor - this means that not only will the competitors have to worry about each other but also the very arena trying to knock them out. The longer the fight goes the more dangerous it will become

  • Healing will have ramping increased difficulty with each heal - this means with each heal it will become harder and harder to heal, so those that depend on healing to hold out will have to learn how to me more strategic with where they may place their heals and not look at trying to spam them

Also so far, for the sake of time and fun for everyone, i will be looking to make as few fights as possible.
So far it looks like we can just 'jump' it into being the finals to determine the champion for each category.
I will draft up some npcs for just in case, if we get some late entries - so please signup by this friday the 29th if interested

There will be some goodies in for spectator, and maybe an underlining adventure ;)

Moving part to Sunday. Will need to work sa v in. Will update after nap, cuz ow.

Blood Nuts and Burglaries

Forums: 

A nutty cache is missing.

A damsel(?) in distress (maybe).

A thief to be unmasked!

For nuttiness abounds in the depths of winter and so do nut thieves. The Nutfather, elderly leader of the Squirrel Mafia of Ramslon, has a problem in need of a solution.

The Nutfather Saga is an ongoing alternate-universe saga in which the players play the woodland critters of the underbrush world of Ramsalon. This is a great session for player brand new to the site to get started with!

How this will run is as follows:

* Post if you'll be coming and which character you'll be wanting your XP under.

* Tell me what sort of critter you want. Previous examples: Dog, cat, mouse, squirrel, pigeon. Anything that would work in the domestic or semi-wilderness of the fantasy urban environment. One critter, up to three skills. Let me know which skill you want stronger than the other two. Or two skills at equal strength. Or one trick pony if that's your deal. All old concepts are welcome, new ones as well.

* I will put together a temporary animal companion for that character with stats and skills balanced against your fellow players and add them to your sheet for the game. Roll and post as your alternate 'you' and we'll see if we can solve a mystery or two. Preferably without a horse head getting dumped in anyone's bed. ;P

I'm aiming for fast posting but will also do slow if coordinating a time to all be online is a pain.

A Harrowing Harvest

Forums: 

Saga: 

Characters involved: 

On the eve of a harvest auction, four intrepid folk found themselves in different parts of the grounds set up near the Ramsalon Farmlands. Declan, perusing for things he might be able to bring back to his bar, finds some curious, foreign fruit that he inquires whether it could make a good jelly or jam. Nearby, Sephtis was asking about children's preferences in fruits, along with whether there were any particularly over-ripened fruits for her picking. Jessica and Moreaaiwe honed in on some seasonal cider, getting close just as things began to take a chilling turn.

Declan, gesturing toward some fruit while talking with the vendor, is slapped by a vine as his hand passes over. The stall-minder, perplexed, was unsure what to say to him or Sephtis; at the cider stand, a pavilion close by lost a strut, creating a small commotion as pretty particular pesky produce from Candenord was beginning to lash out at auction-goers. Jessica moved to assist with getting that stand back on its pegs, while Moreaaiwe worked some clairvoyance to find several past symbols that were related to things now happening in her present time. From there, Declan searched for direct clues to the source, while Sephtis kept eye out for other mischievous vines; eventually, her supplication helped subdue a handful of rotten-seeming stocks. Jessica worked her fire magic to decimate the tendrils in her area, while Mo worked her own wiles to connect the dots of the past, while simultaneously bringing some respite to the uneasy throng.

Jessica was one of the first to discover that handling some of the affected fruits or vegetables leaves a bit of a numb sensation where it touches the skin; Declan helps with some of the sorting out just as the rest of the citizenry begins to collect any suspect fruit and centralize it into the auction square for an impromptu bonfire. Moreaaiwe divines an odd sensation of ultra-concentration, while Sephtis keeps an eye out for any odd produce that gets dropped or left behind on its way to the bonfire. But, at the center of that, the assembled fruit starts melting into a contiguous blob; its condition is supported by the left-behind bits that leave splotches of rot on the ground where they rested. Soon, Moreaaiwe sends Scaramouche to track down an old acquaintance from the city, tied to an event at the docks a year prior. While waiting, Declan attempts to copy a leafy symbol he sees on some of the crates hauling the Candenordian goods, with some struggle. Sephtis gets to smashing the remainder she can identify.

Soon, Jessica noticed that the efforts to start the bonfire were falling flat, and, with the help of some boosting magic from Mo, helped light the pyres underneath the oozing blob. Sephtis built upon her previous work with the strange portals, opening one in the center of the mass so it would collapse on itself and abate, somewhat. Declan managed to get the images right in his head, and makes a good enough artistic replica to take with him for further research. And, sooner than expected, Wareish the Druid appeared, brought on by his own findings and the eventual news of what was taking place. He honed in to their exact spot with Scaramouche's help, and a short discussion ensues while Sephtis and Jess finish more of the rotten mess in the square.

With hints at a lingering entity bent on decaying things to an unknown end, Wareish strikes up a dinner deal with the group to put together notes and decide a future course. Witherbark's spite is starting to heat up in time for winter - how hard could it hit Ramsalon to compound with the cold and snow?

XP: (Declan left early, but met the average posts, so will receive equal. May his player recover in due time!)

Declan: 3 Intelligent XP; 2 XP
Jessica: 3 Magic XP; 1 Intelligent XP; 1 Physical XP
Moreaaiwe: 2 Support XP; 2 Magic XP; 1 Charismatic XP
Sephtis: 3 Magic XP; 1 Intelligent XP; 1 Physical XP

Reputation:
All gain +5 with the Ramsalon Populace.

If a kind ASH2 - Full SH would be so kind as to add the XP and rep for the characters (well, more than one, due to not being able to edit your own Cs with this stuff), I am grateful. Thank you for the in-house feedback, and I look forward to continuing this saga a little earlier than a year from now. Stay tuned!

Vaxia - General Reputation Groups

*Place holder for the moment for organizing purposes.*

The following are considered general reputation organizations which represent larger groups such as a general population of a city, rather then a more specific group.

These organizations often provide reputation which can come into play in keep track of a character's general reputation and overall notoriety or infamy.

Witherbark's Spite: A Harrowing Harvest

Forums: 

As summer in the Ramsalonian area winds down toward autumn, the farmers look forward to harvesting their crops to sustain their livelihood. Though, it seems that some farms on the fringe may have gotten more than they bargained for in accepting some unknown seeds from an undocumented source. What transpires may yet present a danger to the local food supply for this year.

Edit - Flyers will be posted throughout Ramsalon, inviting citizens to attend the harvest auction. This event is advertised as a means for those who wish to obtain seasonal gains not gone to larger markets; at the same time, it allows the farming community to request help for the remainder of the harvest season.

A light bit of investigation, with possible fighting and/or necessary skill use to avert crisis. Character death/serious injury possible, but not a major probability.

Slow-post over a roughly two week period with daily to every-other-day posts, based on folks' busy times.

OOC Edit - I should be technically able to run this now, start date still the same. Will update with the location on the day it starts. Counting five so far, any other takers?
