Duty Session 373: Karluin Reclamation - Town Wake Finished 1634698882 Even with the defeat of the fifth floor boss, Karluin is still a monster-infested ruin filled with precarious traps, ancient dangers and just plain old fashioned half-collapsed architecture. Though dilapidated, the goblin settlement in the area is deeply rooted and will need a good deal of effort from intrepid Adventurers to clear out... But it'll all be worth it. Once reclaimed, the fortress of Karluin will be a second or third home for Adventurers making their way up the tower. It's not like they have much choice; the way up is right smack dab in the middle of the old fort, and leaving it to rot will just make getting to the sixth floor that much more difficult.

The long task begins with exterminating monsters still lurking in the castle-town surrounding Karluin's mysterious central keep. Only then can the walls be secured and progress can begin on securing the fortress' heart.

The workshop is still small in it's developing stages and not entirely free. Plant Hwyaden is asking that those wishing to share their expertise and research the ongoing anomalies in the higher level recipes consider allying with the workshop using a Discovery Contract, which prevents abuse from either side.

OOC Note: This is a social/research scene where information will be shared and research done on the crafting system. Right now the Workshop has a focus on Artisany, Forging, Cooking, Tailoring and Alchemy. Though all crafting concepts are welcome, those listed have better support.

A 'Discovery' Contract is simply that the restoration of higher level recipes or the creation of any new recipe inside 'Ikigai' is the property of the creator, but that a portion of money made from that recipe going forwards goes to bettering the Workshop and Plant Hwyaden as a whole.

Assisting people who are unable to defend themselves as they trudge slowly through dangerous environments on a preset path. When implemented well, they're a chore - when implemented poorly, they're a nightmare.

The merchant guilds and the People of the Land will pay handsomely to see this convoy deliver its goods - and its people - to the destination, and your group is needing to head that way anyway for your own reasons, so it's time to hitch up and hit the road. It can't be all that bad of a quest, right? Two days of travel will fly right on by.

Duty Session 399: Karluin Reclamation - Town Uta Finished 1640296649 Even with the defeat of the fifth floor boss, Karluin is still a monster-infested ruin filled with precarious traps, ancient dangers and just plain old fashioned half-collapsed architecture. Though dilapidated, the goblin settlement in the area is deeply rooted and will need a good deal of effort from intrepid Adventurers to clear out... But it'll all be worth it. Once reclaimed, the fortress of Karluin will be a second or third home for Adventurers making their way up the tower. It's not like they have much choice; the way up is right smack dab in the middle of the old fort, and leaving it to rot will just make getting to the sixth floor that much more difficult.

The long task begins with exterminating monsters still lurking in the castle-town surrounding Karluin's mysterious central keep. Only then can the walls be secured and progress can begin on securing the fortress' heart.

After all this time, something finally seems to have changed. The shopkeeper's dialogue has changed, explaining that while repairing their cellars, they found a passageway into a deeper part of the underground. Since then, rats have been finding their way up through the previously sealed passage.

Now, they are seeking brave Adventurers who are willing to, once again, explore the tunnels beneath the city, in order to seek out this new source of rats.

Festival: Monster Race Uta Finished 1651941000 Last year, the Quick-Feather Peko Ranch organized a Monster Race to promote its services. This year the ranch has been evacuated. Somehow, the Monster Race seems to have been organized again.

Who did it? Is it still an official endeavour of the Quick-Feather Peko Ranch? Did someone else do it? Is this a mere event for the sake of entertainment, or is there a more sinister plot being hatched to the detriment of our Yamato Aventurers and their allies, the Uncrowned? Come and find out!

(Spoiler alert -- it's a mere event for the sake of entertainment)

The event will work pretty much like a Peko Race, with the IC difference that people will be riding monsters instead of pekos. Characters who do not have the Handle Monster concept themselves will ride alongside an NPC Monster Handler who will control the monster, while the PC Adventurers take care of the challenges. People who do not have a monster ride can borrow one for the duration of the race. Show off your monster ride if you have one, and make up your own temporary one if you don't!

The concepts to be rolled will be: Law, Etiquette, Evasion, Handle Monster, Magical.

Unfortunately, the vast maze of tunnels under the fortress-town has proved all but impenetrable to average reconnaissance teams. Elite explorers have been called upon to penetrate the dangerous depths, eliminate threats found within, and track down the source of the goblin infestation once and for all.

Whoops.

The ruin gets busted open and a bunch of skeletons, goblins, and probably goblin skeletons spill forth on THURSDAY THE 13TH at 7:30pm EST! Be there, or be... I dunno, safely ensconced in the tavern with a warm cup of cider, maybe? I'm not your boss.

(Prior attendance is not necessary to come to Part 2, but it would really help me if you tag the scene so I get an idea of how big it's gonna be!)

Duty Session 519: Fireball Solves Everything Shenmi Finished 1663789157 Scattered throughout the forests of Eastal, a number of structures which are believed to have been used for religious rituals in honor to The Burning Goddess lie abandoned. It is said that some of them still contain Igneous Stones, specially crafted rocks used to stabilize and control flames. The secret of their manufacture has been lost to time, and scholars all over Yamato are willing to pay well for some samples to study in the hope to re-discover how they were made. As usual, the encountered challenges will require a variety of skills and ability to be overcome, but due to the special attunement of these structures with the element of Fire, the cooldown time for flame-related Artes is reduced dramatically, thus making this mission a favorite of people who specialize in this style of combat.

Valentine's Day Festivities Reminisce Finished 1598398200 n the past, certain limited time events would usually be announced using bulletin boards or other out-of-game announcements. However, with the approach of Valentine's Day, many of the Root Towns are beginning to put up colorful decorations. Landers dialogue now seems to include mentions of the upcoming holiday. In Japan, it is customary for girls to give gifts to the men in thier lives for this particular holiday, leading to much whispering and gossip amongst the Landers.

While each of the Root Towns are hosting some manner of simple festivities, a more elaborate festival is being hosted within the Ninetails Dominion. Part in thanks for the aid of Adventurers who supported them during the recent Wave of Calamity, and in part to draw more business to the region. Setup has already begun in Dun Loireag for what promises to be a night of revelry.

(OOC: Social event to celebrate IC Valentine's Day. Shop owners/crafters may have booths to sell their wares. Cooks may have food stalls. Adventurers may host booths with games of chance. Socialize, exchange gifts, eat, drink, dance and be merry.)

The Growling Dark Proteus Finished 1598482800 The Madra Feargach Caverns are one of the early 'dungeon' areas that people ran through in ETO before the Black Wave.

But that was before the Black Wave. Someone has decided to check on the area now to confirm some theories.

It will be mysterious. And perhaps also dangerous.

Duty Session 591: Fireball Solves Everything Nyanta Finished 1681233955 Scattered throughout the forests of Eastal, a number of structures which are believed to have been used for religious rituals in honor to The Burning Goddess lie abandoned. It is said that some of them still contain Igneous Stones, specially crafted rocks used to stabilize and control flames. The secret of their manufacture has been lost to time, and scholars all over Yamato are willing to pay well for some samples to study in the hope to re-discover how they were made. As usual, the encountered challenges will require a variety of skills and ability to be overcome, but due to the special attunement of these structures with the element of Fire, the cooldown time for flame-related Artes is reduced dramatically, thus making this mission a favorite of people who specialize in this style of combat.

Now running rampant, the mad monkeys need to be put down to restore some semblance of holiness to the shrine. Perhaps Longwang will award a blessing to those who fight to cleanse this sacred space?

Meet the... Marchioness? Wake Finished 1682280000 There is news coming out of the Fourland Dukedom. The Baroness of Eas is deep in negotiations to expand her territory. Rumors hint at the Baroness Wake to have the title of Marchioness conferred upon her. Among those more closely tied to the talks going on behind the scenes, there are some jokes relating to the Adventurer getting fleeced by having to pay a duke's ransom for the promotion.

Seeking help from her fellow adventurers, Wake has put out a call for experts in commerce, cartography, and politics (as well as the generally creative!) to help her turn the tables on this seemingly lopsided deal. She's outmaneuvered two Dukes before, but this time she's going to need more than her own cleverness as all four of them have a say in matters.

This scene will not use an HP Bar, but +rolls are to be expected and will matter! Good ideas will shape the future of this nascent city-state.

Maybe it's own planty bits could be used in her experimentation...

As the city is surrounded by water, it is also particularly prone to infestations of slimes. Landers are reporting that they are having trouble getting water into some areas of the city. They are asking for Adventurers who might be brave enough to face the sewers and waterways beneath the city to clear out some of the slimes in order to help get the water flowing again.

Floor 1: The First Push Misa Takayama Finished 1595026800 Brave guilds, parties and soloers have been slowly poking at the first floor of Aincrad Tower. Progress has been slow due to uncertainty, low levels and a desire to avoid testing the Death theory. A wall has finally been hit where a larger push will be required to overcome it. As such, a strong, coordinated charge into the floor has been organized. Notices have been made. All Adventurers are invited.

Hellooooooo Adventurers! This is your host Misa Takayama. I'm going to be running a scene for the first major push into floor 1 of Aincrad Tower. THIS IS NOT THE FLOOR BOSS FIGHT. That will be coming later. But there will be fighting of mobs. EVERYONE IS INVITED. But I highly encourage to-be-eventually-formed Scale Emblem Alliance members to join in. It'll be a good hook for the formation of the guilds and subsequent alliance. After all, our whole alliance is basically focused on clearing the tower. But as I said, everyone is invited. I'm sure the majority of you have some reason to challenge the tower and the mobs inside.

It's unlikely to be card combat as I expect numbers to be too high for that... Though if the numbers do turn out to be small, I'm certainly happy to give a go at bossing in the card system. But I will try and come up with things to at least use dice rolls for.

I hope people will enjoy this!

Apocalypse I-b - The Retreat Liminality Finished 1594510200 10...       9...         8...

The old year is coming to an end. Some players are gathered in Ezzo Empire squares. There are no guilds here. Only people celebrating the coming of a new year. Comraderie.

7...        6...         5...

The excitement rises with each number subtracted. People hold eachother by the shoulders, smiling up at the enormous letters displayed in the skies by the administration. Other people are at various New Year events. A group of Grunty Races try to make it over the finish line in time to win their prize!

4...        3...         2...

The visual display grows dim for a moment. Someone calls out about a strange building appearing at the edge of Lia Fail. A massive tower on its side? Something... then, a little flicker. And then... a sound.

A single tone.
