  4. Robyn's Entry - Sir Vere De Pression

    i was actually worried the name wouldn't fit in my story
  5. Name : Sir Vere De Pression Gender : Male Race : Human Age : 42 Family : Wife (deceased), Daughter (missing). Allegiance : (former) Desecrated Circle, (former) Dull Dagger (guild). Worships : (former) Immerxil, (former) Arkh, (now) Exalia. Class : (former) Vindicator, (now) Theurge (apprentice). Appearance : Tall and sturdy (Human standard). Very short hair (near bald, i dunno what's this haircut called xD). Wears light-grey-robe (supposedly, Exalia's pilgrim clothing) Weaponry : None. Excels on melee weapons and hand to hand combat. Wears small Rosary as substitute catalyst necessary to cast minor light and healing magic. And by Theurge standard, his magical prowess is actually sub par. Attitude : Doesn't talk much, suppressing his anger and self-loathing issues. He moves between small settlements, almost anywhere with Exalia's shrine built, preaching. Hates weapon and violence. Backstory : He was a war orphan. Adopted and raised as a Vindicator by the guild master of Dull Dagger, a notorious guild from a distant kingdom that follows a strict code, secretly founded to do the King's dirty job. Mainly coercion and espionage. For those who heard the name for the first time, Dull Dagger sounds like the least intimidating name a person could come up with. But for those who are aware of if, Dull Dagger is the ultimate terror. The guild would have a chipped dagger sent to their target in advance. It was supposedly as a warning, although for the target, it simply means death. Then they would ambush them the next day (always) in broad daylight, attacking them and anyone who interfered. But never with the killing blow, befitting the name, leaving the target not quite alive, nor dead. Despite the guild's fame, it's member are pretty much unknown. As they all lived a double life. Vere himself was a young Royal Guard in the kingdom-- hence the ' Sir '. He was always quiet and the King was very fond of him. One would guess it's because of his harsh upbringing. But it's actually because he started to question his life choices. He's well aware of the wrongdoing of the guild, but never really question it. At least not until one day, the job was a daughter of some noble. His targets are usually corrupt, to begin with. Mostly those who oppose the King, but this time, it's a young innocent girl. The Noble was too important to be left impaired. And that was the first time Vere-- more importantly, Dull Dagger, ever messed up a job. He killed the noble and then begged the King to spare the daughter. Disappointed, the King forgave him anyway, granted that Vere would fill the position of the noble he just killed. He took the girl as his wife out of pity, partially as an atonement. From that time, Vere's life was getting more hectic. He resigned from Royal Guard, moved to the border to take the role of Viceroy and is rarely home. He was overwhelmed by his new job so much that he even started to stretch his orders from the guild. It was then that the member, and his adoptive father, started to question his loyalty, albeit they never really confront him that much. As time passed, Vere was blessed with a daughter, a pretty girl with a red-ish hair like her mother. The couple named her Salma. It was somewhat a turning point for him. He started to come home more often and is more talkative. Learning a little bit late that it was love that led him to wed his wife, not a pity, nor atonement. Sadly, that small happiness didn't last. His adoptive father died not too long after. No more barrier to contain Dull Dagger's jealousy towards Vere. And just like that, a chipped dagger was stabbed on the door of his manor. Reminding his wife of a past terror. Little did she know, it was Vere who put that dagger the first time. She dispatched a messenger, and then proceed to travel lightly with Salma to the capital. Vere on the other hand, upon hearing the threat, rushed back home. Hoping he'd make it in time. But it was too late. He found the carriage in the middle of a lonely road, with lots of dead bodies scattered around. He silently cried, turning corpses one by one, hanging on a very little hope that his wife and his daughter were not among them. That hope was immediately crushed when he looked inside the carriage. There lies his wife, with torn clothes, broken limbs, gouged eyeballs and on her last breaths. Vere really cried this time, slowly pulling his wife closer to his chest. She resisted. Apparently, Dull Dagger told her everything before having their way with her. Vere asked about Salma, but his wife refused to answer. She hates him, she said. And if he loves her, he needs to prove it by killing her, just like how he killed her father. He couldn't, there's no way he would. He just hugged her tightly. Until the sun was set and warmth left her body. Vere left at dawn. Lost. With a vow of revenge. His first target was the King. Then started crossing the name of every Dull Dagger member he knew. Heads after another. One by One. Years after. He grew tired of revenge. Wanted suicide but too afraid to kill himself. He didn't fear death. But the thought that he would meet his wife --and possibly his daughter in the afterlife terrified him. He wandered from land to land, settlement to settlement. His guilt is the only thing that kept him sane. He stumbled upon an Arkh' Grand Shrine, stayed for some time, Arguing with the Head Priest if Arkh is the god of justice, would death be his punishment, would his sins be forgiven, or would his late wife forgive him. The head Priest just smiled and told him that Arkh would care not about his sins, but what he would do to balance it out. All life needs balance, the Priest said. But what Vere needs first is hope. Thus, his new life as a Theurge begun. Roleplay : It was a cloudy night, yet it was so bright. And it was not the moon where the lights came, but from the raging fire burning up housing in a settlement near Emerald Hill. It happened quickly, not even an hour after the warning bell was rung. "Bandits!", the Nightwatch screamed. But it was in vain. The settlement was at it's worst luck to be attacked by a group of bandit this organized. Not too long after, everyone was forced to gather in the town square. Surrounded by small numbers of armed bandits, while the rest of the group is busy separating males and females and some other looting whatever is not eaten by fire. Vere is on his knees, a little bit to the front than the rest of the people, hands interlaced, head facing down, praying. Two bandits sit in front of him. Mockingly asking for forgiveness. "Oh, Exalia, can you forgive us? and give us more loots on the side!" they laughed, pulling his robe and poking his head with the hilt of their weapon. Vere still prays. "And please some women too!" the other bandit added. More rubbish line keeps coming, but seeing no reaction from Vere, they decided that he needs a little motivation. So they pulled a girl by her hair from the group. Dragged her in front of him. People screamed. Vere looked up. "Please..." Vere shakes his head slowly. "Please what!?" the bandit shouts, quite happy that he got his attention. Vere looked back down. "If you want me to stop, Pray to the god so that I would!" the bandit mocks him again, and this time, pushing his head more strongly. He's sure that he terrified him so much. All he could hear coming out of Vere's mouth was "please have mercy..." muffled by the cries of people. He looks annoyed, raised his blade, signing to the crowd to shush. Then he lowered his head near Vere's mouth. Trying to listen to his prayers. Crystal clear this time. "God, forgive me. And please have mercy, upon my enemy..." the bandit moves back, a little dumbfounded. Then he turned his face to the priest who's now staring at him. He scorned, full of disbelief. As he realized that the eyes staring him now are not the eyes of a holy man. "Because I don't!" Vere completed his prayer. "Who arkhhhh..." before the bandit could finish his sentence. Vere jabs at his throat. He throws another punch at the bandit's jaw, disorienting him. Grabs his head and rams it on his knees before slamming it to the cobblestone. Fresh blood streams from the bandit's head. He's gone. The other bandit who was still pulling the girl's hair panicked. Unsheathed his sword and charged blindly. His fate is no better than his dead friend. It took Vere few moves before the bandit was on the ground, with his own sword at his throat. Vere casts enhancement magic on himself before charging at the rest of the bandit. It is done. Most of the bandit is dead. Some ran away. Vere just stands there near the corpses of another mindless murder he just committed. Looking up to the night sky with teary eyes. Hoping that Exalia would forgive him. He felt sick, tired of battles, yet these things keep happening. There is always something that keeps pushing him over the edge. This ordeal feels too heavy. Maybe there was another way. But all he does best is kill people. And he hates himself for that. He turned to the crowd. Some covered their eyes, some stared at him with contempt. Vere knows those looks. If his late wife still had her eyes at that time, she would throw the same look at him. "I'm sorry", Vere closed his eyes, not sure what he's apologizing for. The ferocity he had just shown or the fact that he could've prevented needless casualty had he do it before the bandits burned the settlement. "Forgive me". Vere said that as a parting word. Not really expecting forgiveness. Then disappears into the night.

  10. Update on search for temporary FF substitute game!

    well, jokes aside, maybe change default naked spite into a new 3d model? a new default (naked sprite) for each class, then limit the interchangeable sprite amount into weapon and shields.

  18. Flamefrost Rebuild

    one question. will the forum be down too?
  19. Flamefrost Rebuild

    relaunch huh? just a personal opinion as a player : hopefully it will come with better quest (Naerath lore included). and better yet, with main quest - sub quest categories. but if we're talking about me, in game like this i usually prefer grinding over quest for level up. since i don't really like my story time interrupted simply because i'm not strong enough to do a certain quest (and battles can get quite distracting most of the time). so i did just that. when i get the gist of stuff and reached considerably high level, i started doing quests. then it finally hit me, this game doesn't have a main story . or maybe it does but i just don't get it (?). it just look like a bunch of villagers asking you favors and stuff. while the game has many interesting gameplays (and roleplays), a missing story to hold them together just doesn't sit well with me. as a result, i started my never-ending glimmering forest run for fun ( Robyn it all the way!! ) and got bored of it. fast. but luckily the Wardens are nice people, so i keep coming back from time to time. kinda sad now that the game will go offline temporarily tho. i really hope it will come back soon ( and better ). it has been a really fun experience. thank you so very much.

    96 quantity??? how much space you've got?
  22. Suggestion: Shrine Wipe

    was there a shrine wipe? (will there be one?) traveling with new toon is harsh, especially the one with minor faction. and demolishing lvl 100 shrine will take forever
  23. Coolest New Name Contest

    there aren't any newcomers around eh?
  24. Shameless Advertisement Are you tired going miles away to craft? And when you get there, only to find out enemy faction has claimed the place? Well, Fret not. We can help you. (unless you're Weyah. Weyah can't even help herself ) I've planned this since before I created Luke (months ago) and just been realized moments ago ( not even as Luke, lol ). It's a centralized crafting area (every craft that is available to settlement) and my personal stress-free herb vendors, because herb-gathering is too mainstream. Mind that since my herblore level is not high enough, the vendors will not sell most flowers for potion effect (yet). But I will certainly mantain the vendor level around 6 to 39, where most useful herbs are sold. Also, I will probably never put any settler in Smithery aand Arcane Tower, since both have surprisingly high upkeep (and the stuff sold are not even worth it). The only thing missing in this settlement is House of Import (because it eats up around 55k gold a day just to function as an Auction ) And since it's not only me who can benefit from my own settlement, i might as well share. So, if you are a Pirate, and not a fake one (like @Weyah), or at least Ally to Gatecrasher, Here's my Emerald Hills : Legends : How to Enter Emerald Hills : Open Map (press M or click the map Icon) Click on Cities & Dungeon Click on Emerald Hills (auto walk) When you've arrived, just click on the gate and Visit Morph's Settlement. PS : If you're Fatekeeper or it's allied Faction, Andvarri 's settlement in Emerald Hills also has everything, tho, last time I see it, the Buildings / Vendors are not packed near the gate like mine. PPS : Neutral Faction may and may not enter someone's settlement ( depends on your own PVPness and attitude towards neutral shrines )
  25. Recrafting Guide : Master Artisan

    *INSERT COOL TITLE HERE* Few things to note : Skills needed for general re-crafting : Mining (for Crystals needed to enchant) Conjuration (for Gems needed to put mods in) Disenchanting Enchanting Equipment-Related Crafting ( Blacksmithing / Jewelcrafting / Woodworking / etc. ) Let's cover our Basic Needs. I am re-crafting 2 pieces of my medium armors in this guide ( hence the crafting skill used is blacksmithing ) DISENCHANTING Now that we have covered our basic needs, first thing we should do is disenchanting. And here's where most people are confused. Which Container gems should we use? First, what are you disenchanting for?. Do you just want the blueprint?. Do you just want the rarity?. Do you just want the mods?. Do you just want the skill exp?. If you only want the Blueprint, or Rarity, or Skill EXP, you don't need a container. But if you want all of that along with the mods inside, your equipment HAS TO BE WITHIN 5 LEVELS BELOW the container gems. All the available Gem levels can be multiplied by 5. So, if you're crafting a level 22 Shoes, your wanted container is a level 25 gems. And if you want to craft a level 48 shield, your container needs to be level 50 gem. Most of the game mechanics use this 5 level range rule. In this guide, I am crafting a level 59 Legging and Shield, so, my gems are level 60. In my case, I want to keep cooking mod inside my legging as is, and I don't care about what's inside my shield anymore. CRAFTING YOUR ARMOR Related crafting guide is self explanatory. IMPORTANT If your new equipment changed in level. CRAFT IT TWICE. Mainly because you cannot raise an equipment level above yourself (although you can still craft from higher level blueprint), and all the excess skill points will directly translate into armor effectiveness or weapon power. So, going by that rule, crafting equipment yourself will ALWAYS be better than getting it done by someone else. The only exception is if that someone is at the same level as you. my level 51 legging and level 50 shield, smithed first time to 59 second crafting for best result ENCHANTING We're onto the last part of the guide. Enchanting is only slightly different than disenchanting. We're putting Mods we get from disenchanting into equipment we just crafted. The Catalyst is Mineral Crystals, and the extra components are Contained Mods from disenchanting and Runes . Now, the confusing part is that the equipment level MUST BE at least the same or below the crystal, and the Contained Mods gems (and Runes) CANNOT be above equipment level / range. What you can put inside the equipment depends on it's rarity and your enchanting level. Legendary Equipment with high enough enchanting level can contain 5 at most ( 3 stat mods, 1 skill mod, and 1 rune --- or ---- 3 stat mods, 1 skill mod, and 1 exp mod ) As I've said before, I want to keep my Cooking mod inside my legging, and replace everything in my shield with a new ones. All done now, here's the Finished product :
