Re: Questions Regarding Racial Stat Boosts

RE: On Gondor The goal we have is having documentation for the places that people come from. To ensure that Guides and staff have a basis for approving or declining applications and for players to have a common basis for what they know about our IC/IG world. As not every player is equally knowledgea...

Re: Marriage, Rites, Old Ways.

The second set of links there, yes, need to be brought into context with newer infos. The idea of the "Rights of Free People" is at this time, a historic document about Rhovanion culture in the ages before the Fall of Dale. It needs a bit more context within that framework. If you mean should player...

IC Posted Role - Bathhouse Manager

A squint-faced man sits amongst the gathering of Ironwood Inn patrons and Utterby citizens and comments, "Aye - he was -singing- -singing- I tell you, and I don't know what he called the tune but it was a laughter. Drunk as I've seen him, though that's not saying much." "Seems Master Eastmaer is on...

You need Men of Shadow to bridge the gap between Evil and Men of Twilight. No one disagrees with that, okay, I don't at least.

We've taken a potentially deviating stance on Dorwinion for purposes of playability and player inclusion even if, yes, that means we might be at odds with how some, even the most prominent Tolkien scholars interpret the scant information about the area. Yes, that's known and excepted. We came up wit...

Re: Master Crafting Policy - New!

Indeed.

Alice might submit her request as a one off unique special master bathtub, or a request for a fancy repeatable item, ie a clanned craft.

But yes, that request might spawn the. creation of basic craft Bob and others, and Alice can ultimately use.

This was actually a mistake on my part when I made the craft, as I forgot we had some other water type objects available to also use. So - I'll be updating this for more options. :)

Re: Undisclosed punishments

1. Honestly, a lot of the time assumptions that staff have interfered with one's skill/craft gains are simply nature coded restrictions. Which, might be annoying, but are indeed intentional but not indicative of a punishment, secret or otherwise. Most often when players inquire if they have been "no...

We actually have the concept of a "lottery" (which was very Hunger Games, very ceremonial, etc) during the Angrenost Beta run. It lead some very interesting, albeit angsty backgrounds.
