Title: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Dagon Fai Ur on March 05, 2006, 07:03:23 AM
Cherri and I have been working on this idea for a while now and the Chán'vai will be added to the site on the next upload, I thought it was time that we submitted our proposal so that we can hopefully get started soon after the upload is complete.

Idea

After becoming acquainted in the Thirsty Herald, just outside the city of Strata, Cherri and Dagon agree to begin a journey to the magical city of Elving where Cherri will show Dagon where she has been educated in her magical abilities. After acquiring a guide the two begin their journey to Elving. During their trek, various other parties join to accompany them as they all share a common destination: Elving, and the idea of strength in numbers for this long trek sounds comforting.

The size of the party becomes even more comforting when the group notices some unusual phenomena’s occurring during their journey. Fearing their is some dark cause, or source, for these occurrences, the party agrees to visit the Magi Council in Elving to hopefully gain some answers, or at least alert the Magi of the odd events occurring throughout Santharia.

Upon their arrival in Elving, Cherri, Dagon and the others find The Twin Towers to be entirely deserted. Initially believed to be a possible attack is dismissed with the absence of bodies, but nevertheless, the disappearance of the Magi is a large concern. Cherri and Dagon, and some of the party agree to adjust their journey in order to resolve this mystery. Are the Magi aware of the dangers building in Southern Sarvonia, or has the same dark power taken all the Magi in Elving captive, possibly eliminating the one force that stands in the way of whatever it hopes to achieve.

One problem quickly arises, where can they look? They have no leads. The night after they depart from Elving, unsure of what direction to take – Cherri has another dream. To this point she was unsure of their meaning, but they give her a lead with little proof, but it is all they have. The dream leads them to Rimmerins Ring, the territory of the Baal Ogres – but most disturbing of all in Cherri’s dreams is the presence of a Mage, cloaked in black, conjuring a spell of catastrophic proportions.

It becomes known that the mage has removed the most powerful magi from Elving in hopes of scouring the Twin Towers for the mythological artifact, the Chán'vai. With this artifcact, the holder wields incredible power and the ability to wreak havoc throughout the world of Caelereth.

Dramatic Personae

Dagon – Dark Elf Warrior
Cherri – Elven Mage
- Guide (PC or NPC)
- Party Member
- Party Member
- And more...

New Players
Once the story begins new players can be admitted at any time. The opportunity arises upon our arrival in Elving or even during our journey between the Thirsty Herald and Elving as well as from Elving to wherever the Magi have been taken (or fled to). A common goal is the opportunity – to unravel this mystery.

Co-Mod
Cherri, of course, will be my Co-Mod for this story.

Please make sure you read here for all the rules and such for Story Development if you have not already.

And I am not sure about getting this up and running by the next update as we are fairly strict about the integration of new stories and the reliability of the proposed moderators.

I merely mentioned the Chán'vai is going up next update because for those who don't visit the dev board frequently may think the Chán'vai doesn't exist :)

Cherri and I both understand the time it will take to approve this story and get it up and running. We just thought it was better to make sure that our main artifact was approved by the dev board mods and admins before proceeding too far with the idea.

Dagon, both of you have not enough roleplaying experience so far. So you need to practice a bit more. Look at Luca's thread on top of this forum.

Quote:
1. Experience It is a general rule of thumb that story mods should have  three months of continuous Santharia RPG board experience. This is not only to ensure that you know enough of how the board itself is run and about the site information itself, but also to give us a little piece of mind that you won’t vanish on us three weeks into the story because you got bored.

Cherri mentioned that during our RP in the Thirsty Herald *ponders* Oh... I should remember... I'm pretty sure it was just going to be a long walk, which was why we need a guide... *shrugs*

Cherri? Explain maybe? :b  

As for experience... "officially" from the date that I was titled... the 26th of March will be my 3rd month on the RP board. Generally, I was assuming that this story wouldn't be approved for a while, nor is there any real need to rush into things. I merely hoped to submit our idea and work out all the kinks so that when Cherri and I are ready to run our own story, the story will be ready for us :)

Okay, this idea is again ready to be looked at by the admins. I do have the minimum requirements of activity, and hopefully my participation on the dev board is a reassurance to anyone who has any doubts :)

As for the questions earlier asked. I will try and get in touch with Cherri and point her in the direction of this thread. Again, she was the one who planned out the route and that. I developed the artifact and we both did the story so... this is her area of expertise :)

Post by: Cherri Rowandyn on April 03, 2006, 02:09:23 AM
Ta dah!!  Okay so much for a grand entrance.  Sorry I am late, RL gets in the way sometimes.

Okay first off how we are getting there.

I thought that we would trek (and I am only going to name the places on the map and not go into a alot of detail.  If you want to know where it is look on the map like I had to :b  ) through the Yar' Dangs (which we will need a guide.  Someone already volunteered a while back and said just to let them know) then we can take either the West approach to the Desert or the East.  Dagon and I need to discuss that one still either way the result will be the same we will end up in Bardavos up through Mehmetsh, the Sharadon Forests to Seraia then Klinsor, Marcogg before the Auturian Woods and from there to Elving.

I have read about all the above mentioned places, or at least the ones I could find and their provinces.  Not every place listed on the map is listed undera province so that you can pull details from it.  This is not something that I can help and do not think that we should be penalized for progress, but I think we have enough major cities to help bypass the minor little places that are not listed yet.  I only made mention of them so that you could get a good idea of the way we will be traveling.

As Dagon said, there is no rush with this as both of us are still RPing in the tavern and at Voldar's thread.  In the Voldar thread Capher will be extending on an idea that I mentioned to help out the plot line.  Both Dagon and I have been active in our RPing and both us of have contributed at least one thing to the Dev. site.  Dagon has done more that I have.  He is very active with new players and coming up with new ideas.  That has to count for something.  I believe I was approved in January 06 and have roughly been here for three and half months or so.  And while my life does not revolve around Santharia, I make an effort everyday to post something worth while in my RPs and when something else strikes a cord in me like my herbarum post, then I will propose the idea on the dev board.  I check periodic the dev site and see if anything interests me and if so I add my two cents worth.

You really can't ask for much more than what we are already doing.  Both Dagon and I did not expect to post an idea for a story and then get approved.  We expect that it will be months before the kinks get worked out so that it satisfies everyone, which is damn near impossible to do.

So far the cheif inquiries I saw were how will we get to Elving.  That has been explained.  Second thing is we don't warrant enough time here, okay only time will take care of that.  If three months is not enough time to be taken seriously then someone should change the requirement to say six months.  That way time will not be a factor.

What other questions mayhap can I answer next?

Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on April 03, 2006, 07:51:23 AM
Lady Cherri, I think I have to clear up some things here concerning story mods, for you devoted a whole paragraph to it.
Contributions on the dev-board don‘t define your ability to mod a story nor have they any influence on the decision, if someone is able to mod a story. Having a lot of new ideas may help more, for you need this trait to bring your story forward. Helping out with newcomers is very appreciated, but I don‘t see, in which respect this helps to run a story. It is not so, that  those get a story to mod, who „deserve“ it, for they are very active. We see activity in role-playing as a sign, that the person in question has the time and dedication to go on with a story when the first enthusiasm is over. You say „I make an effort everyday to post something worth while in my RPs“, but that is not enough for modding a story. You need to do this AND mod it, what means, writing for one or more NPC‘s, planning in advance what should happen, write intros, summaries and what not. Co-ordinating the whole thing, write to members who don‘t post regularly , comment on posts which are not ok.  

Now to your story:
You put some work already in the plot, but generally a mere travelling story , from place to place, even with the goal to find something (the globe), is not enough to keep the story alive over a longer time and to finish it. You have already some more ideas, but they need still more elaboration, mail them to the admins, if you want to keep it secret.

I like your beginning, but two members are definitely not enough, so you should start with at least two, better three more. Eight is a good number for such groups, so not everybody has to post each day, if he/she is not addressed directly, and the story flows nevertheless.

The desert:
What do you mean with: „then we can take either the West approach to the Desert or the East. „?? Please more detail here.
Not such a good idea to travel through it, for you need a guide for the whole Rahaz Dath and I don‘t know of only one char who is actually a Shendar guide who knows all secret ways through it (normal Shendar don‘t know all routes!) . A NPC would be a solution, but he/she would be as time-consuming to play as a normal char.
In addition, the treck through the desert has one disadvantage - other new players can‘t  join, for their chars, if they are not very special , can‘t just travel into the desert and meet you. The Shendar are no touristic entertainment and very rarely lead foreigners through the desert, if they have not a good reason for it. The voyage is hard and long. The normal way would be to take the ship from Strata to Varcopas, then to Ravenport, if you want to go to Elving.  

I would like to know a bit more about these unusual things you are planning.

The next thing I feel a bit unwell with, is your description of the towers of Elving being entirely deserted. This is not a minor thing history wise, and as you are not allowed to play a king, I would prefer, if you could avoid it and come up with another idea, f.e. that just a  few important mages are gone missing.

How do you plan to end the story? With the defeat of this black mage?

Generally the idea is not bad, but you need some more smaller things to make the way towards your main goals more interesting.

Post by: Dagon Fai Ur on April 04, 2006, 08:54:23 AM
The actual movement from the tavern to Elving will not be soley based around the journey alone. There will be variuos confrontations with bandits, or something that will give the players a chance to have a fight... or something *shrugs* Or, if we decide to change our plans to venture to Elving by way of the sea, well... I'm sure I can think of some interesting things aboard the ships that could prove to be fun for the characters.

Did I actually say that the entire towers of Elving were deserted? I thought I specified that only the highest magi, or council of magi were missing... the most powerful magi that would ultimately be the only ones who would be able to stand against this dark sorcerer. How the dark sorcerer did that would be explained later... well, at the conclusion to the story, as most good stories have... a nice little "wrap-up".

Also, I couldn't find Ravenport on the map. But, as for the entry of additional characters. When we arrive at each stop we could briefly venture into the city, as I doubt the ship would immediately depart when we arrived. Perhaps we would stay over for a night, or so, get into a few local conflicts perhaps before venturing onward while picking up a few extra players along the way.

I do understand your skepticism as to our modding ability. But I believe Cherri was just trying to demonstrate our commitment to the dream, no our activity on the dev-board does not make us adequate story mods, nor should it influence your decision whatsoever. I simply think that what should be taken into consideration is the amount of time and effort Cherri and I have devoted over the past 3 months to Santharia. Cherri does have commitments that may deter her from being as active as she would like, having a little one and all, but I (being the 17-year old high school kid) have plenty of time to ensure that everything is taken care of.

I don't mean to sound like I'm trying to contradict you in any way, as you obviously have far more experience than I in Santharia. We simply are dedicated to the progression of the story that we have started in the tavern, and would very much like to have the opportunity to continue it.

Ravenport is on the Manthria map.
No stops between Thalambath and Varcopas, so you need to keep that part short.

I would like to have a more thorough layout mailed to the admins (please copy me onto it, I'm not checking admin mail daily), your plans when to use bandits etc...

Dagon, three months is nothing in experiance which counts really. (Maybe we should change this to six, Cherry is right). And everybody who is/was storymod can tell you about the frustrations which show up after some time. We want to be sure, that the story doesn't die after half a year. But that doesn't mean, that we are not willing to allow this story, but we want to see it layed out properly, so that it will run smoothly.


A note to Cherri: I don't have to look the map up, it is mostly in my head - at least these southern parts :p

Any story mod will tell you they were unprepared, to some degree, to the time the story has lasted. Usually what happens is the plan out to a certain point and can't often go beyond that point. Not because there are a lack of people but the plotline comes to a halt and the mods lose interest because they don't know what to do next. Also, because they lacked the knowlegde and understanding of how things work when they started which resulted in poor planning.

3 months is the minimum we will allow for story mods (and I think it was set thinking about co-mods instead of actual moderators)



Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Dagon Fai Ur on April 05, 2006, 12:49:23 PM
Can 3 months (Dagon) + 3 months (Cherri) equal to the 6, collectively? :b

I will try and work out a thorough layout to be submitted to you in the near future that will hopefully flesh out the plotline and ensure that we will have enough ideas to run this story to its end :)  I hope... :b

Sorry if I sounded a bit umm, itchish, shall we say.  Dagon has got some really great ideas and hopefully we can get some newbies (which we are still ourselves) involved and stay longer than a week or a month.  Dagon and I will get together as needed and finish getting the finer points worked out.

Post by: Cherri Rowandyn on June 22, 2006, 10:06:23 AM
Okay, I have not proceeded with this story line so that I could gain some more time under my belt.  I am now coming up on I believe my 6 month anniversary or at least close to it.  Dagon, however, will no longer be around as I am sure you all noticed, so I am taking over this story line.  Progress on plotting an acceptable course shall commence shortly.  I will say that I do not believe this will be sea voyage.  It was never really discussed to begin with and I think would make for a very boring story which others would grow quickly tired of, you can only do so much aboard a ship unless someone wants to become pregnant (assuming there will be other females aboard) and can have only so many storms and fight so many pirates before it become redundant.

Anyways, I shall go and begin to gather the information requested.  Please by the way set out exactly what is needed all at the same time so that we can prepare everything and submit it at one time instead of getting one peice here and there causing un needed frustration and anxiety.  Thanks!!

Orril, I believe we are going to be making the Dark mage an NPC.  He doesn't really facto in until halfway through the story so you would probably get kind of bored.  Cherri and I still have plan out the route, NPCs, plot ect. so it may take a while, especially considering my predicament in this next coming month.

I don't really know, what you are wanting us to do. I ask for a detailed story line, where you plan to go, what should happen where etc. And that you take into consideration, what is written about the Rahaz-Dath, the Shendar and where ever you plan to go afterwards. The sea voyage was just a proposal to make it easier for you - you can make a pretty short chapter out of it (even without pirates, for there are none currently) and go on with the main part of your story.

Drasil, he doesn't have to start in the Thirsty Herald. Most new people just tend to congregate there because of the simple atmosphere and it is a quick way to get to know people and learn a bit as well.

People can jump in anywhere they please when it comes to stories, as long as the Mods approve their joining.

Kalina, from what I have gathered from Cherri and what we have worked out, the story starts from the Thirsty Herald so IMHO, it might be best if he started out there.  It was just a suggestion however.

Quick question about the Shendar.  I would like a little clarification please, and try not to bite my head off and tell me to go read the Shendar posting because I have already done so.

"However it is to stress, that the features which they have in common outnumber the ones by which they differ by far, so they have f.e. one representative for the "outside" world, their leader called the "Hrul Zhaeón"."

Now the Hrul Zhaeón is a rep. for the outside world at the .  Is this rep. to act only in  a political sense going to Court and meeting with other dignitaries and delegates or could this rep. also be used as a guide through the Dangs.

I would think that since the Hrul is an elected rep. that he would be too busy to show travelers through the Dangs, which leaves to question can anyone in say the Kir'rii settlement act as a guide?  I believe that is the closest settlement to Strata that was set up to help travelers pass the Dangs, which apparently is a pretty common thing.  At least the Shendar posting says something to that effect, tho it is not the big money maker.  Agreements were reached that the Shendar help travellers through the desert, receiving goods and more control over trade in these particular areas.  At least this is my understanding.  If I have misunderstood, then please let me know.  We are kinda stuck on this right now and would really like to move forward.

No, the  Hrul Zhaeón is the one who represents the Shendar in the outside world on the level of Thanes, so he would not be able to lead you. But as you said, you can hire a special guide in Kir'rii through the Yar'Dangs. If you want to go to Thalm'bath, you might find your way on your own along the coast. If you want to cross the whole Rahaz-Dath, you need a guide. If I would have the time, I would love to play this guide, but currently it doesn't look like this. Send me your plans for crossing the desert and I can propose some nice adventures - things I have in mind for the desert but not yet written down in detail. There is no way for you to cross the aj'nuvic grounds, for these paths the Shendar don't use with strangers.

*turns to Cherri*  I guess you were right.  We should edit chapter one accordingly when you next sign on.

*Back at Talia*  Thank you for your assistance.  If you still wish to play the guide when the story gets approved, we would love to have you.

*Grins at Drasil* We would most certainly like to hear some more about these adventures you have in mind.  It would be wonderful to have to as our guide, but it is understandable if you are too busy.

*pinches Thorgas' cheek affectionatly* What would we do without our favorite rotund dwarf and his obsese pig?  The story is already mage heavy so you may be one of the only magi to get in, if we decide to set up a restriction such as that.

Hahaha thanks. But mages are supposedly rare; if you find it impossible to fit my character in your story, then you can have Phinehas instead, provided that Lady Sturmwind finishes the entry about them.

Well , as far i understand, you Drasil and Lady Cheri are at the end of getting your own story ....

That said it will be my honor if any of my Character could join , a seducer ( Tiras ) or a mage slayer ( Malavon ) .

Mage Slayer would be interesting for later in the story though it may not work in the beginning.  If I talk to Cherri, I think we can work you in in a unique, interesting way.

We could actually use both a seducer and a mage slayer.  I think after I talk to Drasil we could find a place for you more in the beginning of the story so you could get into things and not have to wait around...if you would be interested.

Yes, your character can play in more than one story.

Haha, we know how hard it is to make a story, much less have it approved. I, for one, admire both yours and Drasil's determination. Keep it up!  :grin:


Title: Re: The Chán\'vai Myth
Post by: Drasil Razorfang on April 11, 2007, 06:16:16 AM
Mala, I\'m going to ask that you only put one character in for now as we will probably be cramped for space anyways.  Also, I am assuming you remember your old role that I described to you via PM.  I am going to ask you continue to fill that role as you are built into the story as such.  Jiro, you are going to get a special role as well.

Also guys, there aren\'t \"sides\" in this story, unlike war of the fallen.  All the evil players are NPCs so that we can control their actions to channel the story in the right direction.  The side of the PCs also has a decent number of NPCs that will probably be assigned to various players.

Pyth and Thorgas, you guys are still in.  Actually, built you guys unofficially into the storyline.  The story applicants that are approved thus far, that I can remember, are as follows...

Cherri
Drasil
Thorgas
Pyth
Jiro
Malavona
Callie

All others will have to apply when the story officially opens.  If you name was on that list and I forgot it(we gave you specific permission to join somewhere) just tell me and I\'ll add you to the starting list.  I believe we were shooting for a party size of around 10, so there are still 3 more spots for PCs.  If necessary we could probably open it up further, but not by to much as it would just get hectic.


Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Phyth Glenfield on April 11, 2007, 06:20:39 AM
Um, just one thing about the story. You guys said it's starting in the Thirsty Herald, and our characters meet and go off from there. How exactly is that being done, if you can answer that without giving anything away. The reason I ask is, Cherri is now the mod of the Herald, so she can't leave it, plus I (and others I'm sure) would like to be in both.

Just curious.


Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Kareesh Valendar on April 11, 2007, 06:23:31 AM
I think, at least this is how I would do it, is have it at a different time and in the thread. 'Cause if we meet in the actual Thirsty Herald thread, there's always a chance of it getting side-tracked and other people getting involved. But, that could just be me. *shrugs*

EDIT: Ha! I got to it before you Dras! Ha!


Title: Re: The Chán\\\'vai Myth
Post by: Drasil Razorfang on April 11, 2007, 06:23:57 AM
Remember they are two seperate stories, thus take place at two seperate points in time.  Therefore it is possible to RP in both, just like it would be in any other story.  Also, the TH bit won\\\'t be RPed in the actual TH, but in a thread in the Chan\\\'vai story thread.

Title: Re: The Chán\'vai Myth
Post by: Drasil Razorfang on April 11, 2007, 06:29:59 AM
I\'ll have to talk it over with Cherri as we don\'t want to fill up the story completely before it actually goes on the boards, but you defiantly meet my requirements.  Which character do you wish to join with though?


Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Fenmarel Leislasa on April 11, 2007, 06:47:03 AM
I'll join with Fen.


Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Cherri Rowandyn on April 11, 2007, 09:22:55 AM
Well, well.  And here I worried about meeting the requirement of having at least three to four ppl to begin with. 

As far as numbers go I would like to start the party out kinda medium with a diverse group of people.  I believe Drasil has got that part well handled.  But this story will expand so we can accept new people who we deem can hold their own well enough in RPing to join the story, as they come.  There will be some additional rules for players other than the 10 Commandments of RPing, which are standard.



Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Hylphán on April 11, 2007, 08:48:30 PM
@Drasil:  I would definitely be interested, if you would have me...

I'd be willing to join, but only if you don't find enough other players. I'm busy enough with Voldar, so I wouldn't want to take away the chance for new characters to join:)


Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Cherri Rowandyn on April 12, 2007, 02:32:06 AM
You haven't entered any of your characters?  Now we will have to do something about that!

Title: Re: The Chán\'vai Myth
Post by: Drasil Razorfang on April 12, 2007, 04:47:09 AM
...Cherri you weren\'t supposed to tell them that.  :rolling:  Now I can\'t use the excuse \"I have to ask Cherri\" whenever I want to put something off until a later date.

@ Fen:  Yup you are in!

@ Simmone:  Please join with Naya!  She\'s my favorite of your characters and will fit best into the story

Hylphan:  While you know I want you in the story, I\'m slightly afraid as it would be violating one of the rules we laid out before.  In order to join, we need to know that you make a meet a minimum requirement in posting content and seeing as you haven\'t RPed anywhere, we cannot verify anything.  Perhaps you should join Voldar or the Herald for a final Yay or Nay?  I\'m sure you will do fine.  If you do not feel like joining these stories, we can wait list you and if no other people ask to join, we can bring you in on a trial run.  Is this ok with you?


Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Simonne Miller on April 12, 2007, 04:53:01 AM
All right, if you really want me to join with Naya, I will join with Naya :)


Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Cherri Rowandyn on April 12, 2007, 05:40:57 AM
I did because Drasil is the co-mod, my right hand man with the same equivallant power as I have when it comes to our story.   ;)  Ohh, how I am just itching in anticipation.  I really hope you guys like this story as much as we do.  We have put alot of planning into and I would hate for it to go strong for a month or so then go kaput.   :cry:  That would make me very sad indeed which then leads to anger which then leads to me  :fish: people. 


Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Hylphán on April 12, 2007, 07:55:07 AM
@ Drasil:
     How 'bout I start posting in the Herald with a few posts, then you can pick me up when the group gets going?  Would that be acceptable to all moderators involved?  Please let me know and I will write up a good start to be posted later today...

Thanks guys!

Depending on how things work out in the Thirsty Herald I would love to join in on this, if I am welcome, but this is very dependent on The Thirsty Herald.


Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Khel on July 21, 2007, 03:06:01 AM
Would there be an appointed amount of people?

Maybe you would look at their previous posts and such... I know that would take a long time. I'm just wondering, I haven't had any experience with a moderated story like this. But it sounds fun! To have a purpose and such..


Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Cherri Rowandyn on July 21, 2007, 03:11:20 AM
Drasil and I have to talk about the amount of people to start out with.  There will not be a limit as to how many good players get accepted throughout the story.  I do know that.

As far there being a criteria yes there is a criteria.  Why do you think I keep such close tabs on you guys in the Tavern.   ;) 

So as you see Roland, alot more than you intended does depend on the posts in the Tavern thread.


Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Roland Hampton on July 21, 2007, 03:15:07 AM
No matter, soon Roland shall die in the Thirsty Herald lol

All I mean is its not exactly Rolands kind of thing really, but depending on how things go in the Tavern he may would want to go, but not so sure, guess well have to see


Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Khel on July 21, 2007, 06:22:51 AM
I think despite all their differences, most of the members in the Tavern at the moment would compliment each other nicely on a quest =)

I hope this, or something like it, could work out in the future!  :grin: I'd like somewhere else to play.

Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on August 22, 2007, 06:06:44 PM
Are you still interested in me as a third co-mod who does the landscape descriptions, (maybe the weather) and so on? (Only for the time you are crossing the Raház-Dáth)

And in my two guide NPCs (the older women and her grandson)? I'm too busy to do real CDs just now.


Title: Re: The Chán'vai Myth
Post by: Drasil Razorfang on August 22, 2007, 10:55:18 PM
I'd definately entertain that idea and if I remember properly Cherri was keen on your joining as well.  Would you mind sending us the NPC descriptions of the characters so that we could submit them with the rest of the proposal?
