Announcements / A sudden chill in Ring 97
« on: December 08, 2020, 09:29:34 PM »
In Ring 97 a cold wind blows in, carrying with it billowing storms. Snowflakes begin to fall, and muckboys complain loudly about ice drifts in the canals. The great trashfire sputters and cracks, billows of black smoke growing tame. The less dedicated of the possessionless ascetics find thick clothing to be suddenly within their supposedly non-existent budget.

But above all else... something strange happens in the factory of the toyfolly. A great whirring of gears, shouting, complaints. The ever-constant billowing smoke from the factory stops. Angry toyfolly gnomes run this way and that across the ring, and the familiar stocks of toyfolly equipment across the city grow lean.

Meanwhile, the snow continues to fall...

There will be a seasonal winter event on Sunday the 13th, beginning at 10pm UTC.

[ :: Year 1 :: ]

Rumors spread of changeling madness afoot.

Tales of strange chaos far off in the rings. A mad ringrunner attacking men  in the ward, nearly blind from cataracts. The disturbance was swiftly put down... however.  Something is wrong. Deeply so.

In the ponds, men who before walked with slouching backs now walk with purpose.  Conversations around the fire grow ever quieter, with suspicious and hostile looks given to outsiders. Bug infested and rotten bread is shared more freely. The muggers of the ponds seem almost a touch thoughtful as they open their subjects bowels. And with the fall of Ticker, the number of men in the ponds begins to swell...

Correspondence / [The Guildmaster of the Union]

Good day, I hope it finds you well. As your secretary, I hoped to contact you quickly to resolve any potential confusion.

I heard of your incident earlier today. Of course, in emergency meeting, the other guildmasters unanimously have chosen to pardon all charges and clear any record of incident, as they fully expect you would do for them!

So as not to be presumptuous, I'd never issue direct advice to a guildmaster. That said, were I to make a powerful and well supplied enemy, I'd perhaps seek allies within the Peerage, and assure any further incidents take place outside the public eyes.

We hope to see you in the next session of parliament.

Ever in service to the benefactors of our square,
- Secretary Milo Bhesk

Had a number of people ask for a delay, so we'll run an hour and a half after planned time so they may attend.

Announcements / Prelude: The Woodlands
« on: September 10, 2020, 01:37:11 AM »
This Sunday, I will be running a prelude. This prelude will likely be PvP heavy, and only one PC will survive this prelude. Those participating will receive level 5. The winner will enter the gameworld with a reward, but there will likely be no further direct plot ties. Throwaways welcome.

[ :: Day ??  Year ?? :: ]

With little reason or cause discernable, a seam to the Plane of Fire opened in the very heart of "Trash Island".  Fires began to spread, and many efforts were put towards closing it-

But the seam remains.

And as the day ended, as all other seams blinked in and out of existence....

The seam of fire remains. Trash isle smoulders.

Announcements / A small note on the Recondite
« on: August 23, 2020, 09:30:05 PM »
Starting when this post goes up, simple approval from any DM is needed to roll a new Recondite. Any DM can give you the green light, so hit us up on discord! This is largely just to encourage players to contact us with their concept first, and give players a chance to ask any questions of the lore or conventions before rolling, it should be a largely simple approval. The number of recondite at once isn't really limited, unlike the winespills, so don't feel put off by existing characters at any time! If you do not have discord access for any reason, always feel free to submit an application instead.

Thank you!

Correspondence / Re: Letter for James Vernon, Marked "Urgent". [DM]
« on: July 11, 2020, 08:20:30 AM »

When this was only a matter of the Council, we had much recourse. Room to maneuver, politic, negotiate and influence. Now that House Sunpurse has made its position known, and by proxy, the position of its lady- We do not. While sunpurse is notoriously... uncooperative, they are a great house. And if the lord or lady of a great house brings something as to law... it is.

Ideally, this should have been dealt with, with the council, before it came to this. Our power exists in issues below the interests of the Lords. Should one decide to step in, in even the smallest way... our room to maneuver becomes small. This is why it is vital we move quietly, and manage issues before they become set in stone. Subtlety and back rooms are our greatest weapons, and a shouted word is as a dagger to our heart.

The council's demand is insane. And were it still only the councils, perhaps, I'd have words of help for you. But as the Reeve's words echoed, so too did Sunpurse codify it into law. While the accord does not grant retainers powers, the powers- rightfully so- granted to the lords are without limit. The word of a lord or lady is as law, without exception.

The remaining hope I have for you is to use our most powerful weapons. Go to this insane councilwoman, and negotiate with her. I have little doubt she will unfortunately soon sit upon parliament, by any matter, and we must begin to influence the non-table seats to be more sympathetic to our guild. This woman was threatening to chop off fingers, just a few hours past. And while such threats were mitigated into a legal trial, it betrays a state of mind. A state of mind a clever tongue can shape like clay.

As for a our seat on Parliament- it is held by Lady Valentina, of course. I have heard some concerns it sits empty... it does not. She simply has not chosen someone to sit for her in proxy, yet. Her standards are exacting indeed, and parliament holds great power.

- James

Notices and Bulletins / The Wonders of the Velvet Wedding

Let it be known!

By the grace of Lady Valentina Velstra, it has been decided all who brought gifts before the wedding shall be rewarded with a rare, magical flower from the Velstra gardens.

And, let it be known, the couple ascendant have not forgotten their promise of reward to he who shone the most in combat! Therefore, they put out a call- below, let all sign what name shined the most, to them, during the war. The soul of the Ward who deserves a lordship above all others, and we shall take note.

Quote from: The Guildmasters Signatory
With the refounding of Ticker Square, place has been made in parliament for two lesser guilds to rise to the heights of a seat and property. Reserved for lesser guilds of considerable power, prestige, and political involvement, a guild who attains such heights is the equal to even the highest guilds. To attain such position is to gain considerable political power, clout, and freedom within Ticker Square- though to get it is a great difficulty indeed. Though rarely do those who attain such sit still... for to one with such position, the word "Coterie" echos loudly.

The position of Signatory Guildmaster is granted only to high quality player factions.
Quote from: Faction Requirements
Application: DM approval required, no application needed.
Special Requirements: Must be in charge of a player faction or petty guild that has had sustained longterm success under their leadership. Must be a prominent PC with a loyal following.
