Introductions and Group Management / ⚒The Sons of Iron⚒
« on: January 31, 2022, 09:11:12 PM »
⚒THE SONS OF IRON⚒



The Sons of Iron are paragon dwarves, meant to be the heroes of their kin. Each Son tends to represent one facet of what being a Dwarf means, some more for the honor, others more for the ale, others for runes, others for wealth, and so on. As such, they thrive to right the wrongs done by some Ancestors, such as in the 94th, and have the whole package: They toil in the mines like no dwarves in ancient Gathol Zirin, the forge said to almost run on its own, by the very hands and pickaxes of some Ancestors themselves, who are happy to collect their due in gold, jewelry, gemstones, magic and ale, filling the Vaults within the mines. With current events taking the Sons focus towards Little Tickertown and the Peerage, comes great opportunities for involvement in all sorts of plots, which is what is happening right now, ranging from the 92nd to 100th. Be a fully committed Son of Iron, former Golden Grinner, a fanatic or simply an "Ironjack", most dwarves can fit in.

Quote from: Fehit Leondrucs
Thelisa Sunspyre, Regent of Willowgrove. An Envoy of the Royal Thieves whispers to you. We are watching you. We are glad that you complied with our request of leaving the simple crooks, the small, commoner thieves, not only unmolested, but under your protection within the boundaries of Willowgrove Park. The criminal community is ever grateful.

One can't help, however, but wonder. Has anyone made such request on behalf of local changelings? No need to answer. We'll find out. We have left the Park, but our eyes and ears are always there. Your 20000 groats worth purse stands out. You may hear from us soon enough with a new request. For now, it seems you're rather busy trying to establish rule over those who don't need it.

hours later into the night...


Quote from: Fehit Leondrucs
This is the Envoy, of the Royal Thieves. Let it be known, that we have nor had any qualms with House Sunpurse. An Oath has been made this evening to reinforce that, no Royal Thief shall target nor threaten a member of Sunpurse family, by extention, nor its servants. This includes the extended family.

Quote from: Garth Winespill
To the so called Royal Thieves- you scorn the name of monarchy itself with your foul bravado. I shall personally bring you to justice- your spying of the Lady Thelisa will not go unpunished. The groat stolen shall be procured and given to the needy, and your shadowy cabal will be brought to heel.
So says Garth, son of Norbert. Think not that you are safe from the hammer of justice that is those of pure and good heart. Theft is not a craft- it is neither noble nor does it bear purpose beyond your own selfish means. The Bannerhouse's agreement with your false guild will not spare you.

Quote from: Aeryn Hastings
I must admit I am /very/ confused! Though I suppose I can be confused a lot lately, you know, well, given everything, but anyway, that's besides the point.
The point being, of course, well, you already know the point, because I think I've said it, or is it that I was going to say it just now? Anyway. Thievery seems /very/ evil, but so does attacking random people like the Sunspyre does. Maybe it's two evil people against each other?
That's good, right? [Huffs]

Hark! A messenger of the Royal Thieves shall be making an important announcement in the King's Commons within a few moments.

Quote from: City Whisper by Fehit Leondrucs
*a plain voice slightly muffled by some mask* Hark, Loyal Subjects, I am The Envoy of the Royal Thieves! The official announcement was made around a candle ago, and since so few dared come to the King's commons to hear it, it shall be whispered in your ears... *ahems*

Quote from: City Whisper by Fehit Leondrucs
- 'As per open letter penned around 3 cycletime ago, The Royal Thieves announced their coming to rings 100 to 97 to the local Thieves Guild, the Knaves of 99, with three crime options to be chosen for introduction, all of them to fund charity.

Journals and Musings / *A brand new logbook*
« on: August 29, 2021, 02:21:41 PM »
*as an old logbook gets its last page filled, its replacement quickly gets filled with several rushed entries at once*

Quote from: The Burglar
We broke in the tower and reached its library. The Tome was warded, I had to make a copy and quick, the others kept defenders at bay. Only The Thug was slain; he had it coming for having heavy steps, dead men tell no tale. I am sure to have copied the last entries, yet, no one seem to be able to read it, memory gets slippery... Boss says it's time for next phase nonetheless

Quote from: The Scout
We now set to scour the 98 to 100, for the next mark lies there. Report any and every underworld activity and players, assess all major entities.

Quote from: The Smuggler
The Code has been pushed in the main bookstore. The word shall spread.

Screen Shots & Obituaries / Andrick of Orza
« on: August 21, 2021, 05:41:09 AM »
Andrick was a delight to play.  I thought  a lot about this PC before making him, I read all I could on forums about Orza, and I wanted to make a good representative of it, but still, a bit different. A well spoken and clever fighter, trying his hand at politics, who would get too passionate and reckless most of the time. I'll post here the two first entries of his efuss comments, which were made to introduce the PC to DMs OOCly:

Quote
[Andrick is in his prime and he is out to play! Finally managed to join Orza, which has always been his dream ever since he was awakened as a child. A street-shiv self trained prodigy, always inspired by the Gutter Knives, Butchers and Orza. However graceful and even plastic his knivery skills have become, subtlety was never Andrick's thing, and now in the new life among Peers, he aims to sharpen another weapon for his collection, a silvertongue.

Quote
PERSONALITY:
A man capable of murder and worse, in the name of friendship. Talented with words and knivery, no backstabbing, but rather facing the foe by feinting, dodging, taunting, plastic graceful moves. The predisposition to take risks is to overcome fear, a constant struggle to be brave, self-conscious about cowardice, overcompensation by intimidation, defying. He craves for love, trying to captivate with boldness and style. Highly susceptible to influence of friends, buying any mildly reasonable idea, he will do it all for those he loves, careless of any consequence. Sly smiles and friendly smirks to win people's hearts, assuring eyes to win their trust, Andrick is loyal to two entities: Orza and friends, the house being his best friend, ever grateful and proud about becoming a bannerman of such force in the Ward.

The PC himself had no clear goals, aside from impress everyone, make  a lot of friends, and get benefits from that. My goals for the PC was for him to be one to embrace his friends goals, and fight for them, even risking his life and jeopardizing the friend's plan for being too reckless.

Don't expect great screenshots, I'm one of those who doesn't take them when he should. There's some loot, I might post the screenshot here later if I manage to get it.










The list of thanks would be too great, the DM and player base  in general is amazing, my apologies if I've gone too far on certain occasion, and I'll be around with a new character soon!

Bouncer-Retainer,

I am stationing my Auxiliary in the abandoned Spinning Groat. They are to be advised to start kicking out every squatter without Retainer clearance. I should do the same when there. They shall be stationed there for undetermined period of time. You and your men may do whatever you wish with those without a badge, they may be requested to flash it, and will be advised to do so. Should you find this against your liking, we may solve this through Duello.

Signed,
Retainer Andrick of Orza

Notices and Bulletins / *Andrick's Taunting Whispers*
« on: August 15, 2021, 04:13:14 PM »
*after much commotion about Duello on the Bridge, a long inspired whisper was issued. The tone seemed to be directed towards public opinion, in order to draw some publicity, favor, and captivate the most common of men*

Quote
Greetings to the fine folk of this Ward, this is Andrick of Orza. Some things must be clarified. Dark fire beings were recently summoned by our bridge, voluntarily or not, by Oathbreaker Aatish Aldebrand, when many a defenders risked lives to preserve our Ward. I was one of them. Midbattle, engulfed by flames, it was noted Aatish was the source of the fires, and put her down was a must to save us all.

Fires receded not too long after my nearly successful attempt, perhaps because of it. Few cycles after, Duello was called by Moonspear on Andrick, and promptly accepted. It was ruled that most appropriate challenge for the situation of Oathbreaking, the Duello Codex III, the Duel of the Fates, with no modifications. Duello issued by Moonspear was then retracted, and called simply a -PUNISHMENT-

Word used by Firebrand, proceeding with spells alongside some in the crowd. I left sight, but halfway to Castle pride hits, had to go back. Welcomed back with dispel, wrongly thought Aatish did it, I charged. Facts said, now opinions. Moonspear loses honor by the day employing service of oathbreakers who retract Duello. If you can't handle duello, do not call for it, just try and murder me in the streets.

It suits you better once your honor and prestige is null anyway, Moonspear of the Nothing, living in its own disgrace and leftovers from the Counts table, support from his faceless Knaves who'll stab them in the back soon as they are no longer needed. Not even the spine to go for  Dangerous Changeling Crookjaw in an attempt to recover the Castle they claim is theirs. Welcome to our so NOBLE fifth House.

Signed,
