Title: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on March 17, 2008, 01:13:03 AM
Capher, gathering our Ai'nuvics and horses is a good idea, however, I see some problems if we want to stay true to what is written on the site:

"Territory. The entire area enclosed by the Vale of Brownies, stretching out between four mountains, named Chieftain, Sorceress, Life, and Death. The Rimmers Ring and Santhala lie just to the east, Wind Bay just to the north, Kor Donion to the west, and the Quallian Forest to the south-west. However, entrance into the Vale of the Brownies is extremely difficult, if not impossible, from any direction other than the west. Through the Gate a deep gorge is twisting for a thousand peds along the course of the stream from the Vale to the outside. This gorge funnels all outside commerce through a narrow, easily defended knife-cut winding through the solid rock of the mountain. In all other locations, except for the south, the valley is bounded by steep mountain slopes and/or cliffs. A mixed forest covers much of the valley, with a thick jungle covering the low southern slopes, eventually becoming inpenetrable, even for Brownies. A deep stream, the Snake River, waters the entire valley, eventually flowing out of the valley through the gate. This stream has two tributaries, one of which flows out of the southern jungle, the other of which flows from the Bottomless Lake, at the base of Life Mountain, fed by the Diamond Falls.  Return to the top"

If the dwarves know a secret tunnel or passway under the mountains , where a dwarf fits through, this is one thing, Compendiumwriters just don't know about it, but a tunnel big enough to allow riding animals to pass? Then, we need to take this way out then as well, for there is no other way to leave the vale if we not repair the broken bridge, or the brownies seek help and repair this bridge themselves - it is or was till now their only connection to the outsite world! Though Talia will of course be glad, there is no actual need to bring the animals in.

 I think we should leave the place somewhat intact when we leave (with a repaired bridge), though of course it would not alter what is written on the site.

While the shortcut idea convenient, I agree with Talia on this. So, who knows how to fix a bridge?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Simonne Miller on March 18, 2008, 07:01:23 PM
I think if enough Hamm'rer clan Brownies swarm over that bridge, it could be repaired soon... It's one of the biggest clans, and they specialise in building ;) Tulpje could get them to do it, if someone tells her that the bridge needs repairing :)


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on March 19, 2008, 01:23:38 AM
That is a good idea Simonne and I will be willing to allow that to happen.

My thought was that as soon as Capher got his powers back he would secretly leave the group at night when they were all sleeping, fly back to the gorge and raise the bridge back whole.

But whatever you guys think is the better plan I will go with.

I can edit or even delete my last post if you all decide that the brownies should repair the bridge and then we can go to the Vale, gather our friends and come back out with our animals waiting for us.  So, just tell me what you decide and I will follow.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on March 19, 2008, 08:58:44 AM
Though a little extreme, I agree it would be better that we rebuild the bridge before re-entering the Vale. Then again, i'm the one who argued that you couldn't follow a halfling from a crumb trail.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on March 19, 2008, 06:29:54 PM
Why not have a compromise? I think the idea that the dwarves know a hidden, small passage through the mountains into the vale is a good idea. No compendiumwriter would know of such a path. Back in the vale we should confess to the Brownies - we should have done that already while coming to them initially - that we cut their only traderoute and connection to the outside world (we didn't know about the dwarven connection). So as our Brownie expert says, they could rebuild it while we are busy in the vale and outside. The dwarven tunnel could be a quicker way back, a shortcut from the dwarven taverns into the vale.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on March 19, 2008, 11:45:20 PM
Okay, so... sans the animals; we move through the secret path, the bridge gets repaired, then move out through the proper entrance?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on March 20, 2008, 12:20:45 AM
I like the compromise, Talia. Good work. but you always have great ideas.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on March 22, 2008, 12:07:14 AM
I edited my post and now just have to wait for Tulpje to answer. If there is more editing to be needed, then please say so.

Thanks.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Simonne Miller on March 22, 2008, 12:15:03 AM
I'll read it soon and I'll try to answer soon but I can't give a guarantee that an answer will come this weekend...


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Tulpje Sweetshade on March 22, 2008, 03:46:36 AM
Heh, that went more quickly than anticipated. If I need to edit something, just tell me.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on April 01, 2008, 04:18:19 AM
I think I can post tomorrow morning and then just Terra needs to go up the tree (if she chooses to) and we can leave the vale.

When will you arrive, when the healing is done or a few days earlier?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on April 01, 2008, 08:02:33 AM
Terra will if she must, but she may need help and guidance. She needs to face the unknown power within her, it is only because it's unknown and explained away as coincidence that has it remain a final faceless fear. I think afterward her telekinesis will remain her her control for a few hours, perhaps even in be some what stronger for a few hours. After that she will not be able to control it directly till much later in her life, at an age where her body begins to fail her.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on April 01, 2008, 11:30:09 PM
Once Morc, Teri and Ken reply I think we should make the trip through the mountain as fast as we can (writing speaking) and then be in the Vale. We say good-bye to Brenna and then we find Ta'las and then we can all join together.

Tulpje then explains about the bridge and while the Brownies fix the bridge we can talk about our adventures; you, Talia and Terra your healings and what you have discovered about yourselves and Ta'las of course and we will tell you of our adventure and the meeting with the dwarves.

Once the bridge is finished, we say our good-bye's and thanks and then go get our mounts and head for Ximax.

Those are my thoughts and ideas at least. Anyone else have suggestions or other ideas?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on April 02, 2008, 05:27:56 AM
No :)

Terra Primrose wants you to be alone on the tree, but if you cannot manage, ask for help - it is up to you what you are writing ;)

To your magic abilities: I would propose, that you are still aware of them (you were not till now), but that they are not  readily available , maybe a little more than before, if you focus very hard. In time of danger, when they are needed, I would call on them and not wait, till you are old.

For Capher:

My avatar:

My riding cat along with my hunter companion. This is a rare pic, for it was a bug in the play which showed both. Normally now either you can ride or your companion is present (was different before, which is a pity)

Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on April 02, 2008, 06:51:30 AM
Perhaps some one could climb the tree with Terra and get her settled, then leave her to face the air, and the wind magic within her.

As a result she would gain control of the power for a time during the healing and perhaps a few hours after, and she would also become and remain aware of it. After a few hours it would no longer be readily available to her, only in times of need. Was thinking that her power could become readily available again in her old age, where is could compensate for her aging bodies frailty in mundane tasks.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on April 03, 2008, 05:24:55 AM
That is one awsome site Talia. If i should perhaps join would I be able to play with you or against you?

From what I saw it looks like a very complicated site. I have the old World of Warcraft game for the pc and actually I thought it was pretty lame. It did not do anything for me so it sits on my shelf gathering dust, but this online site seems much more interesting. I can see how you like it so much Talia.

BTW, your avatar's were pretty interesting as well. 


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Talas Anthavin on April 03, 2008, 09:17:46 AM
Terra,

Ta'las would definitely help in that regard.  Once Terra is settled, Primrose can shoo Ta'las away so the healing can be completed.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on April 04, 2008, 10:34:29 PM
I'm away till Sunday. Will post the rest of my post later. Terra, Ta'las, you can continue if you wish, there comes nothing which would interfere with you, just some dreams of the place of my birth.

Capher, in principle we could play together, but you would need to get an European account, not an US one. Should be possible, if you cna pay via paypal or so. I would have to create an new character on an english server (would be fine with me), for I doubt you would be happy on a German server ;) More later, have to hurry.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on April 04, 2008, 11:24:29 PM
Anyone know where Morc, Ken and Terri are? We cannot go through the mountian without them. If they are going to be gone for awhile I could just puppet them till at least we get to the Vale.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on April 05, 2008, 07:53:20 AM
I know where 'Teri is! But not Morc. Woefully absent. I hope it'll be alright with him; also, Ken just took a walk. Said he'd post as soon as he got back. That... could be next week.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on April 07, 2008, 10:27:11 PM
Well, perhaps Teri you can puppet Morc and Ken will just have to find us, or a dwarven patrol will and give hiim a gentle shove in the right direction.  We need to get to the Vale, the healing is almost over and I, for one, would like to be there when it is all finished.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on April 08, 2008, 06:04:37 AM
I'm done with the healing! Someone can come and pick me from my branch, I might not want to come down! ;) But not before Terra has posted, please.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on April 08, 2008, 11:19:05 PM
Do you like your branch that much, Talia? Do you not miss at least your AJ, if not the rest of your traveling companions?  :grin:

I am sure Terra will post before we get there and Ta'las can help you both out of your branches... ;)


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on April 08, 2008, 11:35:05 PM
I will try to read up Talias last post and post myself in the next few days.

In the mean time a sample of my craft in Second Life, this is a DJ set I recorded a little less than 2 months ago. You will hear my real voice at times to.

My DJ Set (http://home.shatteredeloquence.org/DJMortusAllen.2008-02-23.155823.mp3)


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on April 09, 2008, 06:44:27 AM
That's a great music, Terra, and quite some time running! Unfortunately some technical problems, especially when the female voice sings in the first third (just can't remember who it is) What exavtly is your work here? The composition of the whole?

Capher, Talia would like to come down, but somehow she is still captured by her visions, not her real self yet, a bit afraid of leaving the peace she has experienced in the tree.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on April 09, 2008, 12:38:57 PM
As a DJ I select and play usually a 2 hour "Set" of music, also do voice overs announcing what I am playing next, maybe greeting people as they arrive and try to play requests as well. My regular material consists of Evanescence, Nightwish, The Breath of Life which I bring in from Belgium of all places, Lacuna Coil and Within Temptation. Maybe I will take a Snapshot of one the virtual clubs I DJ at the weekend.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on April 10, 2008, 01:44:22 AM
Wow Terra, I listened to the music, very nice. I was wondering do you do the light show too? When I was listening to your music on windows media player as the music played a psychedelic collage of different shapes and colors would cover the screen and as different sounds came in, the colors and shapes would change with the music.  It was like being in the "70's" again!

@Teri, I wish to move this along, so if you do not post by tomorrow then I am just going to puppet the whole group following Brenna through the mountain so that we can get to the Vale.  I am a bit anxious to be with the others and more: to get moving toward Ximax.

I understand that RL interferes that is why I am willing to just puppet us through the mountain and that is all.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on April 10, 2008, 06:16:57 AM
No light shows, lags older computers to much. ;) Bearing in mind this is all within a 3D Environment run on peoples computers. I often wonder about clubs with all the flashy "Lights" that cause lag, and everyone complains about it. Anyway here is a pick of the club me and Noxluna built for me, she actually pays me to DJ, I have given up arguing against it.

Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on April 10, 2008, 09:52:23 AM
Perfectly fair, thank you. I'll try to get one in... Sorry for failing you all again.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on April 10, 2008, 11:01:49 PM
Teri, you have not failed us. No need to apologize. RL gets in the way, and I really understand.  If you wish we can give a couple more days to post or if not I can puppet our way?

@Terra, nice enviroment; about how many people can you get into there without breaking the fire laws?  :grin:  Just kidding, really how many people can you get in there, or does it not matter? 

So the light show is just something Windows Media Player does on its own to music being played. Interesting. You should see how the colors and shapes changes depending upon what kind of music is being played: country, rock, hard rock, soft rock, pop, R&B, Jazz, classical, and the techno music you play.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on April 11, 2008, 01:04:16 AM
No, Capher; if I hadn't just made that post, I would hope you would have puppeted me. Really, a small thing story-wise, so no big deal. Also, I lumped Ken's post right in with it, save everybody some time.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on April 11, 2008, 01:15:32 AM
Capher, on Windows Media Player, it's called a visualization. It's basically just a very simple program built into the player that takes the waveform of the song - waveform being the pattern of the vibrations that make up the sound - and interpret that data into something on your screen, using patterns, shapes, and colors. There may be some math involved in what colors it chooses, but I'm not sure. I've seen some interesting things on it: listening to a file related to a drama/mystery I'm watching on youtube, and one of the symbols that they use in the show appears on my screen. It was kinda creepy, but not intentional.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on April 11, 2008, 03:59:56 AM
The club is rather small, it's only 26 meters by 21 meters, I think we were getting pretty close to 16 people in and it was starting to full in, so I would guestimate we could accomisdate 25 to 30 people, absolute max would be 40 which is the limit for the number of people the whole region will support. 30 would be a good number for us though and people could still get to their homes.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on April 11, 2008, 10:36:23 PM
@Teri, thanks for the information on the media player, I did not know it.

@Terra, interesting. So do the people really dance to your music? I mean do the 3d figures actually move or do they just stand there and talk while the music is playing?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on April 12, 2008, 02:17:41 AM
Yes Capher, peoples avatars can and usually do dance to the music, and it is quite a lot of fun. And there are is a great community of DJs in SL (Second Life.), and a fair number of inside jokes about us to. LOL I do enjoy it a great deal and really missed it for the stretch that I was not DJing. Recently Debuted at another club, Noxluna had a club owner come in to listen to me and landed a great one time trial gig, maybe it will become a regular gig, it pays almost twice what I would normally make.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on April 19, 2008, 02:26:46 AM
I hope it works out for the best for you Terra.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on April 19, 2008, 05:20:13 AM
Oh it is, I just don't have enough time to make any real money out of it. Noxluna Djs about 20 hours a week and makes enough to cover her SL Premium, and land Tier fees, even enough extra to help with her real life bills while she is unemployed. It is lots of fun and I never would have expected starting Second Life I would be doing something that would put me at the center of peoples attention, never was terribly social at RL parties.

As far as Noxluna and my Second Life together we are now living in the same virtual home, the one I pictured earlier where I "Lived" has become out retreat, should we need a change of scenery of the "Sim" is down and we can't get to our main home. Noxluna has 5 rentals set up, and we have The Moody Dragon next door as well. Things are pretty good for us other than a rash of network/server problems the SL has been having, we have not seen our bunnies in about a month now, we have been soo afraid of "Letting them out of their carriers" in fear of us loosing one to an "Asset Server Issue.", we have become quite attached to them and they are our eqivilent of our babies. Even though they can be easily replaced it would not be the same.

I just bought a newish computer, got it REALLY cheap at work, P4 3.0Ghz, 1GB RAM Hyperthreaded, PCI-Express slot, 80GB Hard Drive for less that $100, then I spent about $400 on a new 512MB Graphics card and power supply to run it all. Going to swap in my old hard drives, DVD Burner and 2GB of RAM from my old system and it should last me a few more years. :)


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Laell on April 19, 2008, 06:34:15 AM
*ish jealous*

I'm struggling to play NeverWinter Nights 2 on my quaint little Toshiba with a 128MB video card... which ought to play NWN alright, technically. But it's a chipset, rather than a real card. What that means, for the rest of us, is that part of the processor's memory is dedicated to video applications. It runs a lot of games alright, Halo, for instance, which works real smooth except when there's a lot of models on screen Models, for those just coming on, are the three-dimensional objects in a game or program that are rendered, or drawn, live; as opposed to sprites, which are drawn beforehand and simply pasted into the program. But even in Halo, when I de-animate the models *koff koff*, it pretty well clears up, regardless of the area size.

Back to NWN2: It checks cards for capabilities. Hardware textures and lighting, in this case. A chipset isn't capable of doing hardware textures and lighting. In order to play NWN2, I have to use a hack program that forces the game to be blind to the card's inneficiencies. *sighs* I need a new compy.

I did learn a good thing from my troubles with NWN2: Whenever you buy a laptop, always buy a gaming machine, and never one of those cheesy so-called "business" laptops. Even if the most graphically intense thing you ever play is solitaire; you will never regret having done this, and it will stave off obsoletion.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on April 19, 2008, 08:40:05 AM
Well SL runs on my 4 year oldish "Cheesy Businiss Lappy" alright. Well 7 frames a second with a 32MB graphic chipset. ;) So yes while it does not run well it does not crash either... Except for when I do somethig extremely stupid and my frame rates drop below 0.5. LOL Yes I know I need a better Lappy, but with this one I can laugh at all the bling'tards with so called high end dual cores, and people with significantly better machines that whine SL will no longer run on their machine. LOL

Oh, you will be here soon! Wondered a bit when somebody would come and pick me from the tree. it is still my shelter...

Terra, there is a place on my tree where I could feel save - make up your own refugium, maybe with a cave in the trunk?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on April 25, 2008, 01:33:09 PM
Thats is a good idea Talia, Terra has the struggle of fightign her fear and getting up the tree first. Ta'las would likely have to guide her back down... A little.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on April 26, 2008, 12:25:15 AM
Anyone know where Teri, Ken and Morc ran off to?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:

Just to let everyone know, I haven't given up on my plans to take Ken out of the story, simply postponed them.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on April 29, 2008, 08:35:37 PM
Are you tired of playing him? Maybe take him out for a time and let him come back later?
He is needed in the end!

Well as of Sunday I have officially been a resident of Second Life for 1 whole year. My Partner Noxluna planned a nice big surprise "Rez-Day" party for me and it was absolutely great! Had a lot of fun with all my SL friends. I started a blog about my Second Life, what few picture were taken of the party will be posted in the entry soon. Will have to get all the "In-Laws" in her side of the family together for her Rez-Day in 6 months. LOL

Just wanted to make that a bit clearer - you have your own tree, Terra. (Ta'las, you probably don't know, that I'm sleeping up there in my tree) There should be no contact to anybody.

@Terra: Your link is still loading while I write this, so no comment to it.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on April 30, 2008, 04:57:21 PM
Who's been...? Oh, no, I remember. Yeah, I need to get back with them. Thanks for reminding me.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on April 30, 2008, 11:39:20 PM
Yes Talia, I knew that, perhaps I should have been clearer in my posts. I liked the idea of Terra's having a sheltering hollow for her to start out in.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Talas Anthavin on May 01, 2008, 08:37:32 AM
Sorry about that guys - I'd forgotten you would be in separate trees.  I'll go make the changes.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on May 03, 2008, 03:50:53 AM
No problem, Ta'las.

People, I sent you an email, but as my mail troubles me in the moment not allowing me to send mail from my Santharian account, it may have landed in your spam. Look out for the heading!


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on May 03, 2008, 08:18:53 AM
I got it, and am considering a reply.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on May 04, 2008, 01:48:34 AM
What he said.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on May 05, 2008, 04:33:16 AM
Thanks..

The mail to Morc came back today as undeliverable. Does anyone know something about his whereabout?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on May 06, 2008, 04:26:51 AM
...? I haven't heard anything from him. His last posts around here - I guess he did post in the Voldar city one last time. Sorry, no help here.
:( Would be very sad to have lost him; although I know he's led a busy life this last little while.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Simonne Miller on May 06, 2008, 04:34:39 AM
He's not a part of Voldar, I think you meant Nyer city :)

I checked his profile, he was last online a month ago, so sending a PM probably won't work either...


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on May 06, 2008, 06:09:47 AM
The strange thing is, that my mail was undeliverable (is that a word?) , I got a failure notice. That means either, the mail is invalid or, I assume, his mailbox is full.
Busy or not, a short note that one is not available at the moment should be possible most times.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on May 06, 2008, 06:55:49 AM
I have not heard from Morc either, I hope he has not vanished for good either. It would be a terrible loss if he does. 

So I should just puppet all of us to the Vale?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on May 06, 2008, 07:24:12 AM
That's the only thing I can think of...? What about Ken and all his balking?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:

First a note to Ken's leaving or staying.

I quote "him"

Quote
Based on the above data, I have concluded:

1. "I have no tale to tell." Aside from the incident in the Vale, and the subsequent move to the dwarven caverns, Kenriil has had, and will continue to have, nothing progressive or unique to add in the way of storyline.

2. While less adept than most, Kenriil is still a warrior, and therefore nothing unique in that sense.

3. Kenriil is a member of that eight.

4. Kenriil will be a member of that nine.

5. Yes, there's more this side of the line: Kenriil is authored by someone who already authors a character active in the story. If all other points were impeached, I feel this one stands on its own merits.

The only point I can agree with is the last, 5. But I don't see this as a valid argument, if the character is needed in the story.

Let me tell you my sight of your points:

1. Why does he have less a story to tell than the others? His personality himself is his story.
2. He is not needed as a warrior, but as I said elsewhere already, he is the group's philosopher and though his nature alone, which makes the others reflect themselves he belongs more in the "Aminah-Group". what makes him unique as well is his race.

4./5. Maybe we should question - and we did already - that law of the "eight members are the best number"

********************

I'm not sure if these are all the reasons why you want to take Ken out, maybe you are just tired of playing him? (for the moment)
Of course every "plan" can be altered, but I thought about giving Ken a crucial part at the end of the story. Well, Capher thought as well, that Talia's sword would be the sword of fury...

Well, I have a proposal:

Take Ken out of the story, for a while, now. He doesn't want to go back to the Vale because of this incident. That is understandable. Why does he not go back with the dwarves and Morc with him? With the intention to join the group at Ximax again.

When Ken will be with us again is then depending on when you are again in the mood to play him, either in Ximax already or later. And Morc might find his way back or not as well.

What do you think?

Post by: Aueniteri on May 06, 2008, 11:42:26 PM
If you have something in mind, then I'm willing to keep him in. It isn't that I don't enjoy playing Ken, or that it's hard - quite to the contrary. I've never written a character so amusing or fulfilling. Mostly, it's that I'm already in the story, have played several distinct and some other long-term parts(Garrek); I guess I could say that I feel like I'm pushing myself over onto the story a little too hard.

But then, I could counter-point by noting Ta'las, who has taken it upon himself to fill the task of narrator for us on our side-quest; I respect him a lot for that. Final word: It might be a good idea to put Ken and Morc together, going around the other way for story purposes, as well as the fact that Morc is gone without warning. When he comes back, we'll be ready for him.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on May 07, 2008, 12:45:06 AM
i agree with you Teri about Ken and Morc, however in the future I would like to see Ken back again, if only for a short period of time, perhaps he shows up at just the right time when we are overwhelmed with enemies and after they are defeated, we talk, catch up, and then he goes his way again. That way if you wish to play him now and then, that would be the way to do it. inmho,

I forgot the "eight thing" is it connected to the poem? If it is I do not have the poem as it was on my old hard drive when it crashed. I look forward to the revised one, Talia.

And for the life of me I cannot recall what I had planned for Ken. When I was taking care of Laurie somehow I lost all of my notes concerning TH and Voldar.  I have been trying to recollect my thoughts on both, but have not had much luck. 

@Talia, I finally read your e-mail you sent to me. I will send you a reply soon.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on May 07, 2008, 01:06:18 AM
I posted and puppeted Morc. However I also puppeted Teri, Ken and Brenna as well. I hope it is ok, if not I can always edit it and let Teri and Ken speak for themselves as well as Brenna.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on May 07, 2008, 06:29:59 AM
Updated poem above under "What happened" last post!


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on May 07, 2008, 07:43:49 AM
That's excellent, Capher! Thank you!

EDIT: Also read the updates, and just about edited the first post to make "dresciptions" not say "de******ions", but realized I would have to reformat everything to do that. Not worth it. Most of us remember how ezBoard would censor the word "descriptions" if you added any font tags to it, so we should know what it means.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Talas Anthavin on May 08, 2008, 11:26:12 AM
Hi everyone,

I hope its ok that I've taken a bit of artistic license with Brenna.  Both about returning with one or possibly more party members, and also with her potentially showing up later.  I'm sort of thinking that if we don't meet up with another dwarven character that perhaps as an NPC she may have a small part later on in the quest: specifically the part in the poem that mentions 'earth' will help.  She is an Earth Guide, and maybe could be involved in finding the Anvil.  If not, no big deal - I think it's vague enough that it could mean anything.



Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on May 08, 2008, 03:25:11 PM
Yes, that would be a great thing to have her with us. A dwarven leader would be very useful, for apart from Capher nobody knows the dwarven tongue, and though we might not need somebody versified in travelling underground in the Zirghurim Mountains, when meeting the Kurakim Dwarves in the Prominent Mountains a dwarf at our side might be very helpful to  find our way and to build up some trust if we meet one the the resident dwarves.


I looked out whom we are to meet in the Prominent Mountains:
Quote
  KURAKIM  DWARVES, THE
The Kurakim Dwarves (Thergerim name Kurakergerim or Kurakergerim) are the most important Thergerim clan of the three known to reside in Northern Sarvonia. Located in the recesses of the craggy, conifer-clad Prominent Mountains, they are undisputed masters at smithery, as with most dwarves, but even more notable for their masonry. Many of the great bridges, fortifications, and cities in the region were built by Kurakim masons and architects, sometimes in conjunction with human effort or elven magery.

They share a very close bond with the Injerín elves and have forged lasting trade links with the Shaded Forest region. Once a belligerent and war-like clan, the Kurakergerim have become more philosophical and patient during their association with the elves of the Folkmore, though both dwarf and elf will gladly take up weapons together against the frequent orcish raids.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on May 08, 2008, 11:08:25 PM
I'm making a new thread for us all, if that's alright; if not, we can move whatever I post in it to somewhere else.

EDIT: Ack! I almost thought I didn't have the sticky-toy. I found it, though.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on May 09, 2008, 12:14:54 AM
Good idea, then Capher can pick me from my tree . Terra is nearly finished with her healing again, then we can move on soon.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on May 09, 2008, 01:23:08 AM
Talia, you want me to come to your tree and help you down? Or just meet you on the ground by your tree?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on May 09, 2008, 03:53:10 AM
Well, I think Talia needs somebody who convinces her, that she has to get down and face real life again - the tree was a refuge for her where she had the feeling nothing can hurt her, time did stand still. Now she tries to prolong this time by just not coming down, but sitting on the lowest branch pondering, how long she could stay there..


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on May 09, 2008, 08:43:00 AM
Terra is essentially finished her healing, what was unknown to her and frightened her for so long is now know and does not frighten her any longer. Once she comes down, over the following few hours the conscious control of her telekinesis will fade back into her subconscious only to rise again to her conscious as an old woman, unless there are other events that once again elevate her control to her conscious mind. She will sleep well though the night till she is fetch, as with the subconscious use of her power, her conscious use of it has drained her and so she sleeps.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on May 11, 2008, 12:56:44 AM
@Talia, understood. Capher will have to have come up with a reason to get Talia out of her tree...it sounds funny.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on May 11, 2008, 01:13:01 AM
I wanted to write us a pretty, heartfelt reply today... But I'm currently stranded two-hundred miles from my computer, with no reassurances until monday evening... Even then, the likelihood is minimal. In about two weeks, my abilities should return to normal. In the meantime, we learn to phone text... And not for replies, sorry.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on May 15, 2008, 03:10:45 AM
I am not doing well. As I have told those in Voldar I am experiencing a lot of pain, numbness, paralysys all over my body and not all at the same time.

Good news; my son Allan proposed to Jaimie, his fiance, in Dec and they are going to be married on July 27th 2008, Lord willing.

Take care I shall be back as soon as I can...


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on May 15, 2008, 04:33:29 AM
I hope you have not got one of that perseverant viruses! Sounds like one! Get well soon!

The 27th is an excellent date... our family luck-number..

Take care Capher, take your time and get well. Our best wishes will be with you and the happy couple to be.

Anyone seen or hear from Ta'las lately?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Talas Anthavin on May 20, 2008, 10:20:33 AM
Yep - I'm still around, Terra.  Work's been busy lately, but I've checked on things every day.

Capher - I hope you get better soon.  Take care!  :)

Has anybody heard of Capher?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Simonne Miller on May 21, 2008, 04:33:07 AM
He has taken a fall in the shower and since then has been having some health problems again.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on May 21, 2008, 07:23:19 AM
Just realized that July 27th is my birth day to.

I have not heard from him since his post on the 14th, I hope he is getting better.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on May 23, 2008, 06:32:03 AM
No problem Ta'las, I know how that is, will be on vacation next week. I need it and I am glad they arranged to so quickly, my spring is getting dangerously tightly wound.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on May 28, 2008, 05:56:00 PM
People, how shall we go on? Puppet Capher until he returns?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Simonne Miller on May 28, 2008, 07:25:39 PM
That might be best, since we don't know when he'll return. I'll make a post soon to fix that bridge :lol:


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Talas Anthavin on May 29, 2008, 09:22:00 AM
Yes, its probably best to puppet Capher for now.  Very soon we should leave the Vale - does anyone know if Aminah is still around?  I feel bad because she's had to wait for so long.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on May 29, 2008, 12:14:25 PM
I have nothing against someone puppeting Capher, but I'd rather not do it.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Rookie Brownbark on May 29, 2008, 02:39:37 PM
I'm still around...very much so. And I found something to do whilst waiting :lol: But I haven't really been reading all this time - I think I got up to when they met the dwarves, but not the conversation they had with them.  And about three quarters of the way through the healing process.  I remember earth water and fire anyway.  Would anyone be so kind as to fill me in on what's been going on since that point?

Oh, just realised I haven't changed to my Aminah account.  But it is me, honest.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on May 30, 2008, 06:49:25 PM
Well, Roo....aminah, healing is finished and all are about to gather in the Vale, except Morcanaan and Ken, who are taking another path. Once united we can leave the Vale and meet you somewhee outside. I have to take a look at the map first where it would be probably, or you have an idea.

it is a pity the council tree was not written when we came here!


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aminah on May 30, 2008, 07:03:56 PM
Actually, it was reading this which made me realise how undeveloped it was.  So, as I write it you may start recognising some stuff.....;)

I'm not quite sure how you're planning on getting up there - are you walking all the way or taking a ship?  Docks would be a good meeting place, or actually anywhere along a road would work too....


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on June 01, 2008, 01:06:11 AM
I didn't think of taking the ship, but of walking, but that would be an idea. We would have to invent a harbour though, but there must be a town or village to be able to get to Parda and then from there at least to Caelum. Maybe there we have to take the path along the Shivering Woods. Let's see what the others say.



To Capher: You have surely read what I wrote about his illness. It looks bad and he probably will not come back, though I will never give up hope. He doesn't give up either, but you never know. How shall we go on?

I have a proposal, but I don't know, if it is a good one, anyway: We (whoever is willing to do it) puppet him until Ximax. We hurry getting there (rp-wise), mostly meeting Aminah and maybe a little encounter near the shivering woods or elsewhere to strengthen our ties to Aminah. In Ximax he goes to the orb while we are going to the dwarves. We will see then, how to go on. Maybe he has returned till then!


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on June 09, 2008, 12:28:47 AM
Sounds like as good an idea as any.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on June 09, 2008, 07:04:31 AM
I guess it's up to me to hue for him at the moment, then. Oh, dear. I only hope I can do him some justice.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on June 12, 2008, 08:09:34 AM
Well, why not! If you prefer, I can do it as well, but not before Monday. I'm away at the weekend (and tomorrow), and busy.

I got a mail from Allen JR that Capher is slightly better now, still in hospital though. I will write more for the whole board tomorrow night.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on June 25, 2008, 04:56:58 AM

Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Simonne Miller on June 25, 2008, 04:59:05 AM
I should have posted as well. I had the time, just procrastinated too much. I'll wait for Teri's post and then get one underway for Tulpje ^.^


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on July 06, 2008, 04:45:06 AM

Well, I just got a mail from Capher today. He is as well as the circumstances will allow it, but will probably not come back before a month or so. Why don't we just have a pause this long. Just Terra and Ta'las could move on a bit.

I can write an email tomorrow to wake all sleepers up.

I just realised, that I will be very busy at the beginning of August (have to watch over my grandson, exciting and exhausting!) , probably till the tenth or so, let's gather again on Sunday, the 10.08.2008?

Yeah, I'm back... Kinda. Might be a while before I caught up with two weeks worth of posts, though. A lull sounds good, but I can be really back in a few days' time if necessary :)

Hi all;

Just a quick note; I am ready to continue the story if everyone else is.

Sorry people, I was thinking about writing a mail to all to re-invite after my grandson had left and I was back from my weekendtrip and now I find you are already here ! My forwarding of new posts has not worked, I fear, though I looked into it two weeks ago. So I thought I would know, when somebody posts!

Well, now I'm back for at least a week ;) Then family has decided to have an one week long holiday in Istrien (Croatia)


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on August 23, 2008, 01:14:29 AM
Wow Talia you sure a busy woman...I wish you and yours all the best and from my heart...I thank you for being my friend.

How come your avatar does not show up?

@Terra and Talas...your posts are so romantic and comedic at the same time. I smiled when I read your last two posts.

Post by: Terra Artemos on August 23, 2008, 10:40:24 AM
Thanks Capher, kinda mixing in the insecurities when I first started getting involved with Noxluna, only Nox had to fight for every e-kiss at first. LOL We have become very close, she sent flowers to my work for me for our 9 month e-dating anniversary. Now in SL we own over 20,000 square kilometers of land over a quarter sim. Even plans to get together in the future. :)

Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on August 26, 2008, 12:57:40 AM
Ha, I'm going to read all this stuff tonight, sorry for my absence!

I was busy, indeed. We planned (well, my son did) to have a week long holiday in Croatia next week and today we had to learn, that our rented flat was not available. So I had to look for another today, and that takes time to find the right one which is affordable!

Edit: I'm sorry, I've again spent time on the dev-board instead of here, but the Luci-stuff upsets me so much! Teri, you don't have access to the moot, or do you? Would you sign an email to Canadian official sites to protest against the decision to set her murderer free after he was sent to prison for life?



Capher, didn't you know I love you? ;) :)


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on August 27, 2008, 12:09:31 AM
Talia...I am not up to speed with this Luci event. I am not sure who you are talking about....sorry.
However no murderer should should be set free unless of course he was proven innocent in a court of law.

@Teri, understood. I liked your last post so much I am having a hard time responding. I keep on rewriting. That is a writer for you...lol I will get it eventually.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on August 27, 2008, 12:11:01 AM
What? Please tell me I read that wrong and Luci's Murderer... Yes Talia VERY upsetting. :( Meh, it's a Tuesday I guess I should expect such things on a Tuesday. Trying not to get overly upset just yet... I have a day of work to get through yet and being my first day back for the week I have to deal with the incompitence/lazyness/uncaring of my Monday guy to. Talia if you can guide me in the right direction for the e-mail thing would be very much appreciated. Seems trying not to get upset just yet is not working so well. :(

EDIT: Must admit I have not been following it as well, I have been more focused one seeking happier things. Though I will be honest... Completely consistent with what I have come to expect from the legal system here. :|


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:

Upcoming holidays are stressing! Puppet me please if I do not write anything in the next two days, for then I will be gone for a week (Croatia)

Tera, Capher, you have access to the moot, so if you want more details, read, but I tell you it is abstruse and upsetting. I thought Canada was a civilised country *sigh*
Capher --> *points at In memoriam of Ana (http://www.santharia.com/treasures/tribute_to_lucirina/in_memoriam.htm) page*


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Talas Anthavin on August 28, 2008, 07:51:06 AM
Talia,

I don't know a lot about what happened in this case, but I can tell you that if most Canadians knew about this, they would speak out against it.  I do think Canada is a civilised place to live, though this sort of event is happening more frequently now.  I also know that most Canadian citizens are often at odds with our legal system, which seems to be fraught with loopholes and other miscarriages of justice such as this.  I am ashamed that this happened in my country.

Is there a place that I can find out more information about this?



Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on August 28, 2008, 11:26:29 PM
Talia thank you for the link. I now know, remember, Luci and her tragic death. Do not be concerned though for God promises that He will avenge the innocent: whether in this lifetime or in a pit of darkness and fire burning forever and yet never dying...that is the ultimate punishment. A punishment I cannot even conceive.

On a happier note have a great holiday with your family.

@Ta'las-all of our countries at one time or another have made us ashamed...do not be too hard upon it, I personally think Canada is a good country; though some of their laws I do not agree with, and I am sure some of the U.S. laws you would not and neither would a lot of other countries around the world, but I love my country and though our judicial system is flawed, as is most others, tell me of a better one!
So I say that to you as well...though your judicial system may be flawed and some criminals fall through the cracks in the end they shall receive their just punishment.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on August 29, 2008, 12:57:02 PM
As upsetting as it may be Talia, I still cared about Luci(Ana), and would like to know. I am thinking I have access to the Moot as Terra Artemos, and not as Mortus Pryde. I have not gotten the Terra Account set up on the dev side. Wonder if I can. Will try if not will contact Arti about the account matter.

As for the justice system... well I am strongly of the belief that if one is "High Risk to Re offend" and was convicted of a violent or abusive crime, they should not be let out of prison, worst of all EARLY. This is something that happens far to often in Canada. Not haven't read the latest on Ana, I do not know if this is the case there, but that does not change what is happening in general.

I skimmed through the new posts and I think I don't need to post immediately. Just pick me from my tree (where I would like to stay in some way, because the experiences there pleased me and I'm kind of out of the world still). Well, puppet me, if need arises.


@ Terra , Talas: I don't have the time to write you some PNs copying the moot, maybe next week. Fact is, that Lucirina'a husband was sententenced for life (=25 years or so) by a jury, but now he is free due to law which allows this.

OK, I', away now for one week... trying to forget sad things on a sunny beach..

Should I post it in the Healing thread? Where should we meet up? I want my next post to be in it.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on August 30, 2008, 09:44:15 AM
No worries Talia, and yeah, completely and utterly consistent with our judicial system. :(


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on September 01, 2008, 01:49:47 AM
@Teri, yes I think both of our next posts should be in the "Healing Thread" so that we all can come together and then part from the vale together as well...bringing Tulpje along after we give our thanks and gratitude to the "Brownies" especially Primrose and the more other prominent Brownies that helped Terra and Talia heal.

I have a few questions as well...after we leave the vale is that when we meet our "Mindsoother?"

Then after meeting her do we then take a ship north, land as close as we can to Ximax and then head for Ximax?

It may be that I may have to wait until Talia comes back from vacation for these questions to be answered, but perhaps others know the answers and can tell me.  Thanks.

Talia: I had Arti sort out my accounts, so all that is good. Reading little bits as I can.

Will try to post in the next few days when I get time.

*waves*

I'm back, after 5 hours in a traffic holdup, one of these 3 1/2 in one piece before a tunnel through the Alpes. I never encountered such a thing before. Normally it takes 6 to 7 hours driving or so (without breaks), this time we needed 14 1/2 (with short breaks).

I have to unpack and tidy up first a bit though, maybe tomorrow I have all runing again.

Hey Talia welcome back. I hope you had a great vacation!!

I still do not see your avatar when you post. I see the others just not yours, how come?

@Teri, our conversation's were very interesting as well as our inner thoughts, I thought. Very well written on your part. I hope you did not mind me puppetting you a bit in my last post?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on September 11, 2008, 06:32:51 AM
I had my picture removed for quite some time, Capher, I did not identify any longer with princess Anakerie. I hoped Faugar would have the time to do a portrait for my person's entry, but he is so busy. Only recently I choose to have one again and to take one of my own paintings.

Now, let's see, if I will come down from my tree ;)



Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on September 12, 2008, 01:10:41 AM
I love the avatar...you did that???  Great job, Talia.  I hope you come down from the tree as well...all three of you. ;)

I'm terrible down because of the death of our beloved little cat Merlin which meant so much to us, I'm back as soon as I'm able to.

Sorry to hear that Talia. Even pet critters of all types become like family.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on September 19, 2008, 01:33:38 AM
I understand too Talia as my beloved Sheltie, Chelsea was her name, died on Sept 11. While the trade centers and pentagon were being attacked by terriorists, I was cremating my best friend besides my wife and family.

Take all the time you need to grieve.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on September 19, 2008, 12:31:39 PM
I've seen a man, my best friend, go down for days when his cat was carelessly run over. So yes, I've seen the pain. Here's a goodwill and a little sympathy.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on September 21, 2008, 12:04:58 AM
The romance between Terra and Ta'las could be exploited by Eckra sometime during our journey or even at the end when we finally face him...I believe it is something that should be explored at least.

We all have our weaknessess that can and probably should be considered to be exploited by Eckra himself, or someone or something he sends to thwart our mission. This is just an idea, but perhaps we should look at our character's weaknessess on our own and see where such vulnebilities lie and then perhaps we can implement it into the storyline, however along with our weaknessess we should also look into our strengths and also the way we have grown to overcome most of those weaknessess, so that Eckra or his minions may at first exploit us, but then we overcome them.

Of course each new challenge we face as we travel toward our goal should be strengthening us for the next one, whether we realize it or not and sometimes we won't even realize we have that strength or power or ability until we are called upon to use it.

Just an idea for us all to comtemplate as we continue on...including our soon to be newest addition to our little group.

On the other hand you may all just disregard the idea as bad and I am good with that as well...I do not want to dictate to anyone of you how or what your character does or thinks.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Talas Anthavin on September 21, 2008, 02:14:31 PM
I think its a great idea, Capher, and I wouldn't dismiss it at all.  We should probably discuss this a little more - I haven't thought it through yet myself.

Eckra has actually begun to find his way into Ta'las' subconscious mind, though he would likely see the Shendar as little more than a link to the others in the group who are a greater threat than a simple desert warrior.  If you look here at the  dream  (http://www.santharia.com/adv/index.php?topic=4287.msg233006#msg233006) he had just before Terra and Talia started the last phase of their healing, Ta'las' forays into his Second Reality have provided an opportunity for Eckra to begin his nastiness, whatever we decide it could be.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on September 26, 2008, 12:16:07 AM
May I remind you, that I'm still sitting on my tree and that I need somebody to convince me to come down? It is however already the next morning. I think you all are still  a night back.

And here (http://home.arcor.de/salixgrey/Katzen/Merlin_Sommer_2008_kl.jpg) is one of the last pics of Merlin, though it does not show what a lively and lovely cat he was, always ready to show us his love by jumping onto us, shoulder preferably,  rubbing his head against ours, putting softly a paw to our face, throwing himself in our way when he wanted something to eat, so that we always had to walk carefully when he was around...


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on September 28, 2008, 01:59:44 AM
Talia, he is a very nice looking cat.

I had no idea that it was the next morning and that you need someone to come and get you....sorry!

I am bad bad bad to have not noticed the time...

Is there anyone in particular that you wish to have to come and convince you to come down or do you not care?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on September 28, 2008, 05:49:15 AM
I think it's alright. We just need to sleep the night, then start the next morning. Then one of us will go fetch Talia. I think at this point it could be either of us, Capher.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on September 28, 2008, 10:29:05 PM
It's ok, Capher :)

Anyone can come and fetch me...

Ta'las, I'm not sitting in Terra's tree, but some (50?)peds away in another on the lowest branch. I'm not sure about the time you picked Terra either - I don't have the time to reread all just now.

I have visitors right now and have to leave tonight and will only be back on Tuesday night, so might not be able to react to your whistle, Ta'las (though it was a good idea).
Sorry for the inconvenience, but we are looking hard to get a room for my older daughter who moves to another city to study there (biology) . It starts next week and she has not yet a room.. 


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:

Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Talas Anthavin on September 30, 2008, 09:28:16 AM
Talia,

My post was vague about how far Terra and Ta'las walked.  It was implied that we spoke for a bit and eventually came to your tree.  We're definitely not standing at the base of the tree where Terra's healing took place.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on October 02, 2008, 09:54:22 PM
Oh , I was not sure about this, for you wrote, you didn't see me. I'm sitting on the lowest branch, so seeing me should not be a problem. Hmm, maybe I'm on the other side, but on the other hand, I'm looking in the direction of the camp and the life below me. Let's see, maybe I can figure out something tonight.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Talas Anthavin on October 04, 2008, 12:21:27 PM
Sorry Talia, I did not pay attention to that in your last post.   :sorry:

We could say that Ta'las does have the wrong tree - he has made mistakes before, and right now he is thinking only about Terra. :)  Perhaps Terra and he could be close enough for you to hear or even see them together, but maybe facing the wrong direction? 



Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on October 05, 2008, 05:35:02 PM
I'm thinking if you people show up, we'll be getting up in the morning, fixing the time problem.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Simonne Miller on October 05, 2008, 05:39:48 PM
I have no idea when Tulpje is... I think somewhere inbetween Capher / Teri and the other three...


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on October 06, 2008, 12:01:54 AM
do not worry Tulpje, I am sure you will find us...why don't you and your owl wake Teri and myself up!


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Simonne Miller on October 06, 2008, 12:53:34 AM
Hmm... I have a question for you guys. Would it be possible for me to switch characters? I have a second Brownie, Roosje, and I actually like playing her better than Tulpje, plus she'd be a more logical choice to accompany you. If you'd rather have me play Tulpje though, that's fine by me.

For your comparison: Tulpje Sweetshade (http://www.santharia.com/adv/index.php?topic=769.0)
Roosje Greenfields (http://www.santharia.com/adv/index.php?topic=5712.0)

I was thinking that if there's ever a chance for me to switch between these two, it'd be now... And the poem would still apply, so Talia need not worry about that ;)

What do you say?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on October 07, 2008, 09:08:26 PM
I have no problem with Roosje replacing Tulpje, however you will have to come up with an explanation why? Also I was curious about the night with your character: does she shine when the moon light hits her or is she more like a ghost, especially when she rides her fox through the forest and vale?

But I defer to the others answers as well.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on October 09, 2008, 06:28:33 PM
Hmm, I would miss Tulpje, on the other side... why don't you post for a short time with both?

Ta'las, Terra, which time is it in your conversation right now, morning or evening? I might have heard you whistle..


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on October 10, 2008, 03:22:43 PM
I don't mind either way. Tulpje was fun, but I'm sure Roosje will be alright, too.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Simonne Miller on October 11, 2008, 02:25:51 AM
I can try, Talia... But I really don't have loads of time, so I don't know how long I could keep it up.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Roosje Greenfields on October 12, 2008, 05:07:25 AM
Alright, I will try to post tomorrow with at least one Brownie... If someone could please recap at which point of time everyone is? Most important for me would probably be Capher and Teri, but for reference sake I'd like to know the others as well ;)

No definite promises though, it all depends on if I translate chapter 16 tomorrow or not. If it's finished, I will post, if not I'll probably keep translating until late in the evening, and then the post will be... some time later...  :undecided:


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on October 12, 2008, 10:29:44 AM
Moving forward, it's the same time for all of us. Capher and my last posts were set in the eve before, but now we're all in the morning. I'm thinking mid-morning-ish?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Simonne Miller on October 12, 2008, 03:55:56 PM
ok thankies


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Roosje Greenfields on October 13, 2008, 03:17:56 AM

But I defer to the others answers as well.

Well she definitely doesn't give light, so I guess she's more like a little ghost. But when she's riding her fox, she's likely to wear her red outfit, which means that only small parts of her skin are actually visible (like, just arms and head). Though that might be even more disconcerting... when you see this miniature head with miniature arms float by :P

As for the reason why, that's rather easy. She's a messenger anyway, so her superiors might send her with you to help, since they want to show their good will, and Tulpje is dependant on her superiors who still have to decide what they'll do with her. It's easy enough to have them decide not to let her go with the group ;)

But I'll try to play them both for the moment, like Talia suggested...


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on October 13, 2008, 10:20:02 PM
i can imagine the first time someone sees you on your fox at night it would not only be inconcerting, but down right frightening....

And you always seem to have the right answers to my questions...I should think about my questions more carefully...the old adage: "put brain in gear, before mouth speaks." comes to mind. :fish:


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on October 15, 2008, 05:56:41 PM
Sorry Tulpje, the forwarding of new topics did not work.

I was not sure, if Talia knows you  or if she was already in the healing process when you arrived. I did not find it immediately and gave up. Therefor I did not mention your name.

Well, let's move on!


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on October 21, 2008, 08:43:23 PM
Sheesh people how long does it take for two people to find a tree?   ;)

And how long does it take for a brownie sitting on top of a fox to answer a question?   ;)

I guess when you're in love, time has no meaning... :rolleyes:

And Roosje, you are probably very busy. I understand.

But like Talia said, "Lets move on."  :thumbup:

By the way Ta'las and Terra, your romantic expressions are very nicely written.

And where is Teri?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Simonne Miller on October 21, 2008, 10:57:05 PM
Sorry, but during the week I really don't have any time to write any kind of decent post, and I don't really want to write a not decent post... And this weekend my boyfriend was here... But I will try to post next weekend for Roosje and Tulpje.

Hmm..it is fall, right? Both in Rl and in Caelereth?  The way love is being spread around you would think it was spring!! :heart:

I understand fully, all of you. Roosje, your studies must be keeping you very busy and of course who could not ignore their Bf/Gf in RL, just to make a post. :rolling:

Terra, I can imagine all of the vomit you two must have to clean up after they read all of your "gushiness" :rolling:  Keep it going though, it may catch on and then everyone will be singing..."What the world needs now, is love, sweet love, its the only thing that the world has not enough. What the world needs now is love sweet love, not just for some but for everyone..."

LOL Well Capher, it appears that I am a fall lover. Last month was the 1 year anniversary of when we started E-Dating, and 9 months of being exclusive. :) Damn it was that long since she was chasing me down, and fighting for me to return her kisses? LOL She is a very special woman, could hardly ask for better and if I did would likely never find her. And lucky in SL the vomit cleans it's self up.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on October 25, 2008, 12:12:56 AM
Actually fall is my favorite of seasons, when the trees turn color and all of those reds, golds, browns, oranges and varied hues of those colors brighten up their respective trees it is just gorgeous. Then there are the walks in the woods, a bit bundled up to keep the chill out, holding hands with the one you love as you scatter the leaves beneath your feet and watch them fly and swirl in the Autumn wind, as you see and hear squirrels and chipmunks scatter under the leaves and underbrush foraging for nuts and other food to keep them through the long winter that lays ahead...Yes, it is a most romantic time, not to mention on a clear night how close the moon looks, even when it looks yellow...

Aahhh, what a time to remember...


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Tulpje Sweetshade on October 27, 2008, 06:00:49 AM
Ok well, they're not too great posts but i wanted to get them done now or it would have had to wait yet another week.

Capher: not studying, my studying days are over since this summer. I'm actually working eight hours a day, plus translating a book in my free time... so my creative energy (and my time) is kind of going mostly there at the moment, hence I didn't have too much inspiration for my posts. I'm also pretty tired at the moment, and the weekends are just too short ;)


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on October 29, 2008, 01:03:50 AM
Well congrats on graduating, Simonne. I did not know.  What book are you translating and where are you working? What is your job, I mean.


All the little pieces of the puzzle will come together slowly as we continue our journey...my new apperance, and the cane are just a couple of them. Talia if you need to know what has awakened in my character and how it will affect the storyline, just pm me and I will tell you. Or you can be like the rest and just learn along the way.  There are many pieces of this puzzle; the poem you wrote, the attraction between Ta'las and Terra, loosing Tulpjie and gaining Roosjie, running into our mind-soother, who I am sure is waiting anxiously for us to get moving so we can meet her and have her join our party. Then there is Eckra and his minions which I am working on introducing slowly into the story, as well as our continued search for Kurik's Anvil and the Sword of Fury.

I cannot believe how long it has taken us...how long has this story been going? Two years, perhaps three and we have only recovered the Heart!

Which by the way I have forgotten. Who has the Heart anyway?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on October 29, 2008, 04:08:36 AM
Morcaanan.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Talas Anthavin on October 29, 2008, 09:00:29 AM
Yes, I was wondering about the Stone too.  It does seem to be more elusive than not, but maybe there is a reason it has gone back to the Tenthrum - for now, at least.  Perhaps Capher – or someone else – felt it was safer to keep it with Morcaanan, Ken and the dwarves as the group travelled north, and that it would come to the group later.

Remember this post? http://www.santharia.com/adv/index.php?topic=4289.msg236839#msg236839  (http://Remember this post? http://www.santharia.com/adv/index.php?topic=4289.msg236839#msg236839)

I wrote it just before Morcaanan and Kenrill went back to the dwarven halls, with Brenna. Even then, I had been thinking about briefly bringing her back into the story as an NPC.  Perhaps they (Morc, Ken and Brenna, or Ken and Brenna, or just Brenna herself) could meet up with the main party in Ximax with the stone.

This might fit with the first stanza of Siroled’s poem:

Earth will assist and Wind will help,
but only love for life can beat the dark.
Those raised in the centre
will besiege the cruel
if facing the enemy in themselves.


Just a thought – but we do need to find a way to get the stone back to us.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Aueniteri on October 29, 2008, 09:10:14 AM
And does anyone know what happened to Morcaanan? I remember something about him getting married, or something similar.

Capher, playing in your story was the very first thing I did here . And I started in winter 2001/2002!


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on October 30, 2008, 09:36:07 PM
Wow! Talia, 2001/2002-that makes this story six perhaps seven years old...and the best thing about it is that people are still playing, interested in it and even some want to join it.  Is that a testament to a good story? Or faithful writers? Or both?  I suspect it is both. For we have a great story and great writers to keep it going without it growing stale.

Congrats to all of our writers, past and present and those yet to come, and to you Talia who kept this story going when I was unable...

Did not Morcaanan give me the Heart before he left? If not then Brenna will have to be brought back into the story to give us the Heart if Morcaanan does not show up in the futrure sometime.

Oh yea, I remember how the original group met in the Thirsty Harald way back when. Let me think... Talia, Terra, Koldar, Avour?, Capher... and I am missing some one from the original group I think. Starts with a D? How the wayback files for WAY back. :)

Talia, feel free to post when you have time, I can't think of anything for Terra but more mush till Talia comes down. She is still a little shaken from heights so I don't think she could make even a short climb at the moment.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on November 09, 2008, 12:36:50 AM
Terra it was a "G" for Geen Firefleet or feet, I believe.  I do not recall anyone in the begininng with a D, however I could be wrong...my memory is not as good as it used to be.  Do you remember Bium? Avour's creation and the episode between myself, him, and then afterwards with Talia?

I think that was the most hilarious episode ever written on this site.  People should read it. I believe they would laugh till tears rolled down their eyes.

Talia do you still have all of those old posts? I recall once you were going to compile all of the posts and write a novel or a story. Or am I mistaken?

Is Teri having computer problems still?

No, Capher, I have no idea how to create something like this, I found it accidentally.

No, this is no missile, I think it is what this rabbit imagines. Have you moved your mouse over the rabbit after some time?

A carrot! Forgive me of my eyesight. And no, Talia I never thought of moving the mouse over the rabbit.


Teri,  :rolling:

I guess many of us are very busy in RL and in other endeavours...I reallly liked the tenth anniversary part of the dev board. What did you all think?

I am looking forward to our families celebration of Thanksgiving. Allan is coming home for a few days before he heads back off to college. This is his last year and then where he goes from there is up to God. I have not seen him since this summer, though we talk almost every weekend for a few minutes between his duites.  I have another grand-child on the way, my daughter in law, Alison, is due around the sixth of Dec. That will make five grandchildren. I feel blessed and yet old at the same time...lol

I also decided to stop writing in my blog...though I am not sure why; perhaps because I am not sure any are still interested reading it. Most are very busy with their lives, friends, work, school and family...and I do not blame them.  Or perhaps I just need some encouragement to continue on, or it may be that this part I have come to in my life is the most difficult part. I am really not sure.

Anyway enough of me rambling on...

You mean the blog of your life? Please don't stop, I may not have much time but I always read it! And I'm sure many others do as well, I know for a fact that Rookie also reads it.

I was busy this weekend, my parents were here in Prague with me so I didn't have much time to write any post... I'll try to get one up in the coming week, if not it'll be for next weekend ;)

Capher, if you need encouragement to continue writing, please read on.

I'm not an effusive sort of person, and I do not like to make a big deal, as I know it embarasses some people.  However, I do read your blog, and very often when I find myself having a difficult day, or having to deal with a challenge at work, I am reminded that there are some people who've gone through much more than I.

I also think, that you could take some encouragement from your own writing, Capher.  Right now, you're blog is at a point in your life which is nothing short of an ordeal, yet you are also writing about how wonderful your children are.  You have such amazing clarity of vision - to be able to see past your own struggles and focus on what was so important in your life.

Take care Capher,

Ta'las.

Thank you my friends for the encouragement.  :thanks: I think perhaps I have too much time on my hands now, now that I am not writing for Voldar and it almost makes me think that perhaps I should try and revive Voldar somehow...that will take my mind off of myself and onto other things.  I will think about it...

On another hand; I want to wish everyone in the U.S.A. a Happy Thanksgiving!! and hugs from me for those who in the world who may not celebrate this holiday as we do, but still think of the many blessings that have been bestowed upon us all by a loving and long-suffering Savior and God.  :hug:

I hope you all have a great week!!

Oh no Capher, don't stop writing your blog! I told you already how important it is that you continue!

Thanks for your wishes for Thanksgiving! When do you celebrae it? We do it already on end of October.

And to yor boredom, perhaps we should speed up a little here with this story?

I'm not very busy here lately either, I'm sorry. I'll try a bit harder, but I will be very busy next time, Christmas is so near!

Well that post took some time to come... Sorry about that ;)
Hopefully a Tulpje post will follow tomorrow, but I'm afraid I won't be continuing with her. I don't have *that* much creative energy ;)


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on December 07, 2008, 02:38:32 AM
Roosje, just want to point out that Terra is not there quite yet, though soon enough. Think you were referring to Teri? Do not worry. Terra will be there soon enough. Just have quite a few things to do first and will need to check on our new Saturday guy first.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Tulpje Sweetshade on December 07, 2008, 02:42:07 AM
Woops, I did, in fact, mean Teri. You guys and your similar names :P I'll change it when I get back to Roosje's account ^.^


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on December 07, 2008, 04:52:35 AM
It will be sad to see Tulpje leave. I hope we all get to say good-bye to her before we leave the vale. If not, then it was nice knowing her.

And you two love birds get in the hut will you already.  :rolleyes:  We have to get going...Eckra is not waiting, he is building an army and he already is conquering parts of his old kingdom. (Oh that is a spoiler) sorry.

And such a notion makes an old dragon sweat when he has such young warriors and adventurers as his back. *Is soooo tempted to paraphrase lines from 300.* LOL


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on December 11, 2008, 12:35:30 AM
What is "300"?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on December 11, 2008, 04:51:41 AM
300 is a fairly recent movie about Greek mythology/history, in particular the Battle of Thermopylae.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on December 12, 2008, 12:24:30 AM
Ah,ok. I guess I will go and have to rent it and watch it then, so that when you adlib whatever it was you were going to, I will know what it means...thank you for the information Terra


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on December 17, 2008, 02:49:05 AM
I would not strain yourself to much. Was a passing compulsion. Still a great movie though.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on December 18, 2008, 01:06:55 AM
I rented the movie "300" It was great! I just wonder how historical it was? I plan on reading what actually happened, if there are any historical records. Thank you Terra for advising me to see the movie.

You are welcome. I am guessing the other are getting busy with the holidays. I have yet to grapple with the evils of commercialism and Christmas shopping myself. It seems at least in my household it has become a senseless holiday based on material things. Will be so happy to be free of it.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on December 18, 2008, 05:33:15 PM
Who waits now for whom to continue???  ;)

Roosje?

I'll do a short final post today, and open a new thread for the voyage to Ximax, then everybody who wants can post still in the old one - or not.

I assume now, that just Roosje is with us?

Morganaan is on the way elsewhere, do I rememeber right, with Ken ???

So, on the way are then:

Capher
Ta'las
Terra
Teri (where is sshe?)
Talia
Roosje

We will meet Aminah on the way.

Whom did I forget?


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Simonne Miller on December 18, 2008, 07:10:53 PM
I will post soon...ish.

I think you have everyone!


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Capher on December 19, 2008, 12:40:01 AM
I was wondering when we were going to get moving but I did not want to push anything as I have been doing so lately and did not want to sound like an old nag...not that I would ever be...lol

Talia, you have all of us. I am sure Aminah has been waiting a long time to get into the story and Morcaanan still has the Heart! Somehow I or someone else perhaps, needs to find out a way to retreive it from him.  I have an idea, but I would like to hear from you all first if you have any ideas.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Terra Artemos on December 19, 2008, 05:10:25 AM
I am more or less waiting for Roosje before I respond, don't want Terra cutting off everyone. :) But I am anxious to move ahead as well. But patient enough to let others speak there piece.


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Simonne Miller on December 19, 2008, 06:09:32 AM
Sorry, no post tonight... I have a terrible cold, my throat and head are hurting because I have to cough so much, and my nose is hurting because I have to blow it all the time, plus I had team building and it's pretty late... And tomorrow there's the christmas party from work that I'm going to... But this weekend, promise! ;)


Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Ta'lia of the Seven Jewels on December 20, 2008, 10:32:37 PM
Oh, hope you get better soon!
And I did not post either, I'll try later...



Title: Re: Leaving the vale OOC:
Post by: Roosje Greenfields on December 21, 2008, 05:43:17 AM
Ok, my post is up! I made sure that nobody has to wait for me to leave, I will post again once the party is actually leaving the vale ;)

And Capher: sounding like an old nag I mean, pushing the story ahead is the job of the moderator. If you don't do a little bit of pushing every now and then, the party will spend a very long time on a single scene, usually ;) We don't mind some nagging pushing to get the story along! ;)

To all my special friends on TH; Have a very Merry Christmas! I love you all... :heart:

Thank you Capher! :heart:

I hope you all started good in the new year!

Tonight my husband is gone for three weeks on a business trip (not too hard, have you seen the latest James Bond? he will be accommodated in the residencia up there in the desert! With swimming pool)), my older daughter, who is currently occupying my comp is on a birthday party, so I might be able to get something going.

If not, all will be back to normal on the 6th, then school starts again (the 7th) and the daily routine will start again. Until then I'm gone, without internet, but maybe some snow!
