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.

Correspondence / [The Guildmaster of the Union]
« on: September 17, 2020, 11:44:28 PM »

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

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.

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!

Notices and Bulletins / The Wonders of the Velvet Wedding
« on: July 08, 2020, 06:41:38 PM »
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.

[A sign is staked, next to a dead goblin]

Article 20

Membership in the guilds shall be offered to those of demi-human blood freely. These creatures shall be allowed within Ticker Square freely, and shall be allowed rank of Guildmaster should they prove right.  However, those of monstrous nature- such as a vile recondite or mongrels- shall be at no time permitted entry, except under escort of an authority of the square. Rather a race shall be considered monstrous shall be at all times left to the parliament of Ticker Square.

People of Ring 99

Upon the tearing of the last bunting, Ser Nicholas Velstra, "The Red Lion" shall be wed to Valentina Webber, joining her now and forever to the Velstra family, and through this, enriching the entire peerage.

All who serve not the copper torc shall be invited. However, those of demi-human decent are asked to stand in the back, and retainers shall be allowed the front.

Rejoice, make merry, and cast aside worries of lesser things. Four things shall take place, upon this most rarified of occasions:

- A gift giving. He who offers the greatest gift to each Ser Nicholas and Lady Valentina shall be granted a gift in return each.

- The saying of vows.

- A great show of combat skill, in the name of the Lady Valentina. The full blooded man or woman  who shows the greatest display, if any, shall be granted a rare gift... A minor lordship, and the chance to begin a lineage of their own.

Come all, and attend. For this shall be a wedding for all to remember, for a thousand generations

Players with the streamer role may post links directly to VODs of previous EfU event streams here. Please include what the event was (More detail is better, but no more then a sentence), the date it occured, and a direct link.

Notices and Bulletins / -- Building an army --
« on: June 04, 2020, 01:06:09 AM »
[A rumor spreads through ticker square. The army looming... vastly too great for Ticker to defeat. Certain doom lingers over the square. The guildmasters begin to gather options, each. It is left to the people of Ticker Square, however, which are chosen... A flier is maintained, outside the Rumor Mill.]


The Ticker Square Defense Initiative
Ticker will survive

If we are to survive this, a very great army must be assembled. Failure to do so will mean nearly certain doom. So far, the following options have become known.

[Done] The Third Company: Elite Mercenaries from the deep rings, they offer one of the strongest and most well trained forces. They desire 100,000 groat.
The Sibilant Empire: A vast army, with incredible supplies... This option is lost.
[Done] The Remnants of the Arbiters of the Hundred Scrolls: They desire the right to prosecute freely those not in direct service to a guildmaster.
[Done] The Seventh Company: "Elite" Mercenaries from the deep rings, they offer one of the "strongest" and most "well trained" forces. They also came at a great price.
[ ] The Cobbledogs: A maddened street gang. They want a tamed hound of unmatched quality.
The Jade Constructs: Incredible creations of magic... This option is lost.
[ ] ...

[Space is left for more, in the future...]

Correspondence / [Eviction Notice from the Golden Legion]
« on: June 03, 2020, 09:10:34 AM »
[A letter is sent to all the former guildmembers, impersonal and cold]

Good day, valued citizen of Ticker Square.

A reminder that, as of receipt of this notice, your right to own property is in forfeiture. To own property in Ticker Square now requires one enter into direct and personal service of a guildmaster.

We have been offered contract to remove squatters, should compliance be lacking.

Guildmasters Tchammorar, Sparrowbroth, Uld and Klink will be glad to accept your service, at time of your choosing!

We hope you are having a great day, and look forward to seeing you.
- The Golden Legion

Announcements / Large Ticker Event
« on: May 25, 2020, 06:46:18 AM »
At 1pm MST on Sunday May 31 there will be a event for Ticker Square centric PCs.

See you there!

City Sending by Secretary Ramus Bhesk of the Merchants Guild : The Guildmasters have heard your concerns! Let it be known the diseased creatures known as "Recondite" shall be allowed in the square, under the following conditions, from this point onwards!

City Sending by Secretary Ramus Bhesk of the Merchants Guild : First, they shall not enter the square, while they are  under risk of violence or strife. Their troubles are not tickers, and they shall not join us. Let them enter to do buisiness, not hide from their own consequence!

City Sending by Secretary Ramus Bhesk of the Merchants Guild : Second, they shall remain only a short time! If one of the Recondite remain in Ticker Square overlong, makes idle, or loiters, we ply upon our mercenaries to throw them out, where they are no threat to any!

City Sending by Secretary Ramus Bhesk of the Merchants Guild : And finally, they shall be granted no protection, nor protection papers, while within. Such is the judgement of your guildmasters. Make your buisiness quickly, then begone after.

Prominent Figures of the City

Information on the figures here can be gleaned by most PCs who have spent time in the City of Rings.

This thread is subject to change, and will be updated from time to time as the story progresses.

Player Characters who grow to become especially prominent in the gameworld may also earn inclusion in this thread.

Announcements / Prelude: The Reemergence of the Recondite
« on: April 18, 2020, 11:42:59 PM »
This coming friday, I will be running a prelude. The exact details will remain quiet, but you will be given early access to a new subrace and association. This prelude will likely lead to a hard and PvP heavy life. If you are interested, please shoot me a PM on discord to discuss it. I'm looking for a relatively small number of people, for the moment, who are interested in playing a long-term serious PC.
