  1. This month's fishing competition will run from May 9th to 16th . The requested fish for this month is the Holy Mackeral. Holy Mackeral are caught in Gravewater Lake in Malas. It is reported to have been caught by fishermen as low as Adept level (80 skill). The prizes for this competition will depend on the size of the fish you can catch. The biggest fish will win you five thousand gold per stone of weight of the fish. The second place fish will win you three thousand gold per stone of weight. Third place will win two thousand gold per stone of weight. An additional million gold check will be awarded to any of the top three fish that are over two hundred stones in weight. All fish must be caught during the week between the 9th and 16th at 6 pm eastern. Winners will be announced at 8 pm on the 16th at the docks in Trinsic. Fish you have caught for the competition may be turned in at the city herald in Trinsic, to Governor Thom, or you may of course bring them with you to the docks. Please note that the herald is fairly weak so if it won't accept your fish it may be full and you may have to try again later. Multiple fish may be turned in, but only the largest of your catch will be considered for the largest fish prize. Fish will be returned upon request of the fisherman. The top fish, if not returned, will be made into a trophy and displayed at the Bayside Stadium in Olympus. Any other unclaimed fish are subject to being made into steaks and/or pies and sold for the funding of future events. (Note: I am usually in game or online between the hours of 4 pm and 10 pm eastern. Ask for me in the RP Community Chat, PM me here, or icq me at #270755567 to arrange delivery of your fish)
  2. It's good to hear from you, feel free to drop by anytime and check things out. I'm glad you got a chance to check out Olympus at least, there's been a lot of changes recently.
  3. Murder in Olympus! Guardians powerless to find killer in their midst By Katrina Hawkins In the early evening hours a few days ago a poor innocent woman was brutally murdered in the Guardian's town of Olympus. The woman, known only as Priscilla, was stabbed multiple times and left in the woods in the residential district of Olympus. After asking several Guardians, all of whom denied even knowing of the murder, I finally found one who would at least admit to knowing about it. The Knight Alexia became belligerent and denied having the ability to even give an interview, even when confronted with the fact that it's never been against the rules for any member to give interviews. The details surrounding this murder would lead any intelligent person to the conclusion that the attacker had to have came from Olympus. In the brief time I spent talking to members of the Guardians and the Emperor himself I identified two likely suspects, neither of which have been arrested. The Knight Alexia is an alcoholic with severe mood swings and a violent streak. When I questioned her on the murder she denied being able to talk about it, even going so far as to suggest it was none of my business, as if the people of Trinsic have no right to question what is happening. During the short time I was talking to her she cycled through several moods, at least once she got almost violent with me for simply asking questions, and drank quite heavily. She obviously has no regard for the people of Trinsic, despite claiming to hail from here. According to my sources the evidence points to Priscilla being killed by someone who was enraged, and most likely from Olympus. Even if she didn't kill her then Alexia would be a good place to start in any official investigation since she obviously is capable of such acts. The Praetorian Laurana is likewise a person with severely violent streaks, mood swings, and more then enough ability to have carried out this act. As most of us already know from dealing with her in Trinsic Laurana is very easy to provoke into threats of violence, and it's not so hard to imagine her taking the next step, as it's been rumored she's done on several occasions. A day before the murder Laurana was seen in Trinsic assaulting someone who got in the way of her finding and most likely harming Priscilla. She is a highly trained warrior that uses a poisoned blade most of the time, but also carries multiple weapons on her person. My sources have stated that Priscilla was stabbed with at least two weapons, one of them previously poisoned and of the type that Laurana usually carries. My sources also state that Laurana was extremely drunk the night of the murder. In that state it's not hard to imagine an argument turning deadly, especially with someone as prone to violence as Laurana. The people of Trinsic deserve to know that the Guardians are handling this investigation properly. After my talks with them however it appears that they are trying to sweep this under the rug, most likely because the two people most likely to have committed the crime are members. With this information it is obvious that there should have already been an arrest in this case, as it's obvious that one or the other of these two women had a hand in the murder of this innocent woman. Instead the Guardians are chasing mystery women and shadows. I think it's time for the people of Trinsic to ask themselves if the Guardians are truly capable, or desirable, protectors of our fair city.

    Looks good Eban... might want to work on hiding the effects of your smoking a little better though
  5. I need a list of events you want to see happen at the Honordays festival this year. So far the only suggestions i've received were to have a fair/market day. I'll be using the meeting this week (yes there will be one and i'd like as many people as possible to come for it) to discuss this as well as a few other things both IC and OOC.
  6. Honestly Charlie, just for the sake of trying to correct any misconceptions you may have about what happened last night I would like to say that I knew who you were the minute you walked in the door of Galehaven. I rped with you just like I would any other person up until the point that something I had been waiting on happened. We didn't ignore you asking to join, I even asked you a few questions about why you wanted to do so. Eban told you what you had to do, talk to Thom or Piper since nobody in the room had the authority to interveiw or add you to the guild. I had personally been waiting on Kodoz to show up, and I didn't give him a chance to rp with anyone else. I needed to do that to advance a story that i've been working on and it was your bad luck to have been there when I finally got the chance to get it done. If youd like to come back as Sherri or anyone else for that matter i'd be happy to continue rping with you so long as it's done in a respectful manner and kept IC.
  7. Pete nine-fingers won. This was taken right after he got the winning score in the shootoff against Bullseye which for some reason irritated the other pirates and a free for all broke out.
  8. Casino night needs a lead still as does everything except the stuff posted in this thread. I was planning on taking the joust and bards night but could certainly use some help with them if anybody is up for it.
  9. I've edited my first post to show the dates and times for events. If nobody has a problem with them i'm going to try and get a post on Stratics with the full list while I get rules for some of the events that need them gathered up.
  10. Soo... you were really drunk last night huh
  11. Think we should probably go for two weeks on this one with one event per day if possible. Although we could run a lot of the smaller events during the feast in addition to the egg hunt. So something like this... Zeus - Opening Closing/Ceremonies - opening October 11th Olympus, closing October 25th 7 pm Temple Mars - Jousting Tournament - Saturday the 17th 9 pm Market/Jousting arena Ceres - Egg Hunt and Feast - Wednesday the 21st 8 pm Galehaven/moonglow fields Posiedon - Community Nets - Tuesday the 20th at 8 pm Castle Vulcan - Mining Event - Monday the 19th 9 pm Market Apollo - Bards Night Championship - Saturday the 24th 9 pm Galehaven Vesta - Trades Baazar - Sunday the 18th 7 pm Trinsic Artimes - Archery Tournament - Monday the 12th 7 pm Trinsic Barracks Mercury - Casino Night - Thursday the 15th 8 pm Galehaven Hades - Humility Hunt - Friday the 16th at 7 pm barracks Venus - Healer's Challenge - Wednesday the 14th 8 pm Infirmary Minerva - Treasure Hunt - Friday the 23rd at 9 pm Vault Hera - Zoo Collection - Thursday the 22nd at 8 pm Olympus What we really need is to figure out which events people are interested in running so we can schedule them. I know Scarst wanted the archery tournament. If anybody else wants an event now is the time to request it and tell us when you'd like to do it. I'd like to have 2 people be on hand that know the rules in case something comes up and the one running it isn't able to make it.

    GM Imbuing

    Didn't have any choice in the matter on the laptop. I could have Vista or... Vista. And i'll point out one other fun little fact. As cluttered as mine is I have a MUCH cleaner pack then Kodoz ever had.

    GM Imbuing

    With a little help I managed to GM imbuing tonight.
  14. I think we can squeeze it all into one week honestly. Nothing says we can't run more than one event a day, or even at a time. There are at least 3 events on the list that we've all pretty much supported that could and probably should be run over the course of the whole week with winners decided at the end of the week. We should get a vote together and finalize the events by the end of this week if at all possible. It's rushing things a little but we still have to decide who is running them and when which will probably take longer to plan out.
  15. He may just be the god of suicidal tendencies and reckless behavior. That would explain his insistence on calling Laur cupcake for sure.
  16. Aneirin could do that but the god of suicide isn't on the list haha. I prefer the idea of the joust over the pvp event. The joust is more accesible and it is something we're known for doing. I was planning on restarting the monthly jousts after the celebration. If we did do a pvp event instead then i'd suggest gm only armor and weapons. It just makes it more challenging and more skill based. Piper's net tossing idea could work too. Better than being killed in 5 seconds by a bunch of stinking pirates with potions haha James firebombing the place would be a little past mischievous I think... As far as the riddle event I suggested... i've been thinking on doing that for a while now and have a couple of ways to do it to minimize cheating and griefers from ruining it for everyone. The taming event would probably be our best bet. I'm not sure who else would have problems with an animal fighting event but I know Thom would never be ok with it IC.
  17. Zeus- King of GODS.... I like the idea of the opening and the closing ceremonies. Mars - GOD of WAR..... I had already planned a joust for this and if we do the Naval Battle with UP that will cover doing a pvp event. Ceres- GODDESS of the Harvest... Purple egg hunt sounds good Poseidon- GOD of the SEA.... Naval battle with UP Artimes - GODDESS of Flight and the Hunt...Archery Tournament Mercury - GOD of Mischief.... I'd be interested in what James could help us come up with for a pranking oriented event. Hades- GOD of Death.... Humility hunt was just meant for this. Venus - GODDESS of Health... The doctor challenge sounds like a fun one Minverva - GODDESS of Intelligence.... Combination of riddles and treasure hunts. The main idea would be to come up with riddles describing a location and provide a map with the marked treasure on it. In the chest at the location would be another riddle and map leading to the next. In place of spawned creatures for the chests we could use areas with a natural spawn. Hera - GODDESS of beasts... I like Aneirin's idea for drake collecting for the zoo or we could do a lower level taming contest oriented towards collecting points for rideables, or one of the lower taming level pets in the zoo.
  18. I'll be there if I can Tyr. Not sure how much help i'll be though.
  19. Let it be henceforth known that the Purple Guardians of Honor are severing diplomatic ties with the Village of Aegis and with those of the House of Silverwood. This resolution was reached after the culmination of several incidents including numerous insults borne against not only the Empire's ideals and its very Honor Itself, but also against its members on a personal level. Though the Empire has given aid when necessary, it continues to be met with reproach and contention by these parties. In addition, jurisdiction is claimed by Aegis and Silverwood over legal matters when there is none. The Empire's sovereignty is often called into question and wholly discredited. Most recently, a high-ranking official acted decisively in quelling a threat to an innocent woman who was unaware she was in danger, and this resulted in the public berating of both the official and uninvolved members present before the leadership had the opportunity to investigate in a more private and appropriate setting. While the Empire will continue to provide emergency aid for civilians in times of hardship, it will not endure vilification for the sake of restoring diplomacy with a land that does not desire such allegiance. This will also include the severing of trade routes between the two lands. Regrettably, this will cause some shortfalls with the Hidden Valley Ironworkers, who send tool shipments to and through Yew, but the Empire will compensate for losses by offering employment opportunities on reconstruction. Until such time as Aegis and Silverwood wish to take measures to rectify the situation and pursue more civil relations, Imperial citizens are advised to proceed with caution when passing through the greater Yew area.

  20. Last night a meeting of the Council of Honor was called. In attendance were the Emperor, Empress, and the Senators of War, Commerce and Inquiry. Ceremonial uniform changes were discussed and changes were finalized until such time as the full Council can vote on the changes. Squires will wear full Iron suits. Knights will wear Iron suits with Bronze arms. Centurions will wear Iron suits with Bronze arms, gloves and helm. The Imperator will wear a full Bronze suit. Senators will wear Shadow suits with Bronze arms, gloves, and helm. Blue sash and purple cloak. Head of State will wear a full Gold suit. We would like to standardize the sash colors of all ranks for ceremonial uniforms. If you have suggestions please contact your Senator to have your suggestions brought before the Council.
  21. Either day works just as well for me as the other.
  22. I need to leave for an undetermined length of time. Considering the current situation in Olympus I felt it was wise to appoint somebody to help Piper lead the Empire in my absence. I have decided that Kodoz Tiberius will be the one to do so. He has a long history of service to the Empire, as well as being the Emperor before me. Piper will have final say, but in her absence Kodoz will handle anything that needs to be done. I will return as soon as I am able. *signed* Thomas Gryphon *seal of the Emperor*
  23. I will not be apologizing for that considering first of all that I did not call her undead, and second of all that happened what... a month ago? I didn't argue it because the way you are playing her she can be considered undead. According to your own definition she is undead. "who have died, but continue to exhibit some characteristics of living beings, as consciousness, movement, or speech" She doesn't have to be able to speak to fit in that definition. Whatever you want to call her is fine; wandering spirit, ghost, whatever. Fact remains that according to the way you have been playing her she is moving and she is conscious of things going on, that makes her undead. And I don't recall anyone referring to her as a vampire. Charlie wasn't kicked for being undead, and if you didn't want to be compared to or called undead all I can say is you either shouldn't have killed her or you shouldn't have started playing her again after you did.
