I've mentioned this before in the chatroom, but I should make it formal in the OOC thread.
I'm done with LoC
Everytime I post it seems more and more forced, like this is a chore rather than fun. I'd write a final post or something, but I don't really know how. Zo-Att is gone, and I have no other way to express that.
Sorry if this inconveniences anyone.
I think that's a feeling probably most of us are feeling to some degree, unfortunately. You'll be missed, you crazy destroyer pervert, you.
Heh, well, you *have* been doing this for many, many, many months now... its probably time for a break. Stay safe, Mecha... and don't dissapear from chat. You're too much fun to just vanish on us.
I put up a new thread on our forum. I'm interested in talking about whats working and what isn't in the game. Please take a moment to post. Thanks!
So... I've kinda gotten to a dead end with Ymalos and his races sequestered away on their little planet. I was thinking that Raktem could crash into another planet. Anyone want to roleplay something on their planet?
You could reply to my emmissary... the Vok'Dar have a proposition for the Trolls that might alleviate your problem *nods*
Is it just me, or has this game slowed to a crawl due to people not really having anything to do?
Well, then lets make something for people to do then. I vote we figure out some way to get our people moving between planets so we can have some more varied interactions.
Imho (in my humble opinion) Age 1 was a little booring, its high activity levels was mostly due to the intial hype and large player base... Age 2 was a little better however we kept loosing active players and finally in age 3 we are too few I wonder why btw... after all the appearance of civilization shound enhance not reduce the option for role playing...
My opinion might be a little biased however since I dislike gods drama and like more to shape things :p
Also we wasted the opportunity of a funny event with Yrie invasion, it might have being cooler with the gods playing their parts trough mortal proxies but with the big boom the fight was over (I never got to send my crusade of sorrow there /cry).
I think that maybe recruitment or restart mighr reignite the interest (even if I'm not sure that its a good time to restart... maybe we can wait a few month for that), in game I guess we can try to introduce some kind of conflict that is not based too much on direct divine involvment for example or find a way to get players more attached to the races that they created :p
Well, my opinion is that people have reached a stable point. There is nothing imminent that can be considered reason to post, and people don't seem to have any idea of what to do next. A couple of things gods did (not pointing fingers) seemed like they could be interesting at first, but then they sort of just got annoying/boring. Also, if somebody does something with one of their races, they can do it without any other race involved, or touched, or even noticing that it is happening. Unlike in the last game, where if one nation did something, a lot of other people would notice, and respond, which would provoke more responses, etc.
People just seem to have run out of ways to make this game interesting at the moment.
I thought those were more like giant space flower fixed gun torrent type things rather than spaceships? Or am I thinking of other space flowers?
As for me, I admit a lot of the reason I haven't posted much lately is real life getting in the way and burn out. I am working on trying to get a few things up and running though, like the goblins on Khendras... I think that's how it's spelled anyway
Why? Well, I was sitting down to type a response and it had vanished! Thats why!
They are in fact space ship flowers made specifically for interstellar travel for mortals after Yrie's explosion.
Hehe I have a feeling that we are going Star Treck :p (I have nothing against that :p), still so sad that we have no humans, anyone willing to contribute in shaping them (I guess that aldii stopped for good this time..)
Here's an idea, why don't we just skip making humans at all?
Oh great. I *did* just invite the 'lets eat the life off of a world' people to the party, didn't I?
Also, Rocktown isn't run by another Blattaria, is it?
Hehe. Yeah, it was sorta buried in there, wasn't it? Its the same proposition I'm making to these other 6 races and that I made to the Foulspawn.
I use a program called Graphviz. It takes some getting used to the syntax, but once you get a handle on it, its pretty easy to use.
And replied to.
Anyone else want in on this meeting? I'm afraid I only had so much PP last night
@Toph- yes, rocktown is run by another Blattaria... which I actually put as Blattia in the wiki, yay for typoing my own race o.o; And yeah, mayyyybe not such a good idea to invite the race that considers the universe a buffet
YOU ARE IN! Thats what the guy talking to your trolls wants!
Blah. I meant to have the Vok'Dar talk in rhymes, but I forgot. Time to make sure that that is what happens from now on.
Did I miss smoething? Why are the Vok mentioning "without the need for the old susurrus?
Just to warn you, I'm going to be quite busy until tuesday, so not only will my plots languish a bit, but the reset might be delayed... you all know the drill by now, though
Anubis, classes are not a guide action. Class are not taught.
Really? I thought you did teach classes, but as whole power sources? So it's less like 'goblins can now be wizards' so much as 'goblins learn to channel arcane power'.
Wow Aboleth. You *really* don't like those things, do you?
...Aboleth, in the interest of fairness I'm going to ask that you retract that last action. Not fairness for me, fairness to you. I have more PP than you, and get 2 extra PP instead of just one every reset. I don't want the World Eaters to die, and I will nourish them back to full, then counter attack against the trolls with my 1 PP left.
I don't want to get into a nourish/denourish war here, hence why I posted this warning.
EDIT: Besides which, how does a mortal have the ability to channels a god's maximum power??
EDIT le EDIT: Oh, he's an exarch... still seems a bit contrived though, especially because he has no idea where any of the World Eaters he's denourishing ARE.
Vengeance would have something to say about such an action as well, I'd imagine.
Yes, last LoC proved that nourish wars are a very bad idea, so I motion for Veok to retract that last action, and you both to go on and ignore this.
Note: See my short essay on this topic in the group forum if you want further reading material on how to do wars the right way. Look here.
I think he meant to say Aboleth.
But yeah, I second the suggestion to retract it, it isn't exactly sportsmanlike after all. I'm not going to tell you what to do, but you would be pretty upset if someone did the same to you.
Alright, it was pretty bad of him to wipe out all of the World Eaters like that (okay, exceptionally bad) but I might have goaded Aboleth on a little by having the World Eater regenerate even though he put PP towards destroying him... kill the delegates, they'd probably just end up eating everyone anyway
EDIT: In fact, since there are only two of them and I agree with you killing them, feel free to do so without any PP Expenditure... and I think wiping out a race when you have no idea where it is is more than a little meta-gaming, but since you were retracting it anyway no harm no foul.
I am a little curious though, how would you respond if the Dhorem did this to the trolls? It's practically exactly the same circumstance after all, except you were active when the World Eaters chowed down on the moon.
EDIT le EDIT... again... I need to think of all these things at once, I really do: Shadow, if we don't teach classes or even power sources to races, what would be the equivalent to teaching the goblinoids divine classes? Divine Magic? Nourish a religious organization?
I don't know how I would respond, cause it never came up. Aldii was OK with the trolls eating them and by the time I started trying to kill them again, she was inactive.
Reset will be a little late tonight, but... you know the drill
Also, I'd like to formally propose that we scrap the current ascension system and return to the LoC2 method of self-picking domains in order to try and drum up some new blood for the game. Thoughts?
Also, for any former players who are lurking, please consider coming back or at least trying to play again for a week or so. We all hit massive amounts of burnout a few weeks back, but... I think we can get this to be a ton of fun again, and I don't want to just give up on it quite yet.
I agree on the ascension or at least anyone interested should be able to post the domain he or she wants and then anyone can volunteer to ascend them (to keep the family three stuff going)
I wish that you had proposed this when I was on the waiting list...
Bad, bad news. Dad just called me, telling me he got an email from our ISP. Apparently we went over the bandwidth allowed for last month, due to me being stuck at home for the second month in a row with absolutely nothing to do. Apparently downloading and playing WoW was a bad idea... He said that he's going to have to cut off wireless access for everyone but himself so...I'm screwed. Big time.
Of course, I haven't really been interested in LoC lately, but...ugh. I am so screwed.
So *thats* where you've been. WoW would definitely eat up your bandwidth really fast. Hope you get things worked out!
Oh, you have? I just tried picking a race that wouldn't be high on people's list of demands... I'll change that
I was the gnomes in LoC2. Variety should be... important.
Don't feel you have to if gnomes are right for the concept man, I can't expect every race I want to be on the waiting list forever
That said, it's true you had the gnomes last LoC... what is it with you and gnomes anyway?
Contact Anubis? Only if you want it to be. I didn't specify if Desire was visible to mortals or not, so whatever you want to do there fine.
Contact it is, I've been waiting for someone to actually care about the goblins Editted my post to include Desire.
So, if there's no more comment on the rule change... I'll implement it in 24 hours. Again, I proposed eliminating the ascension system for self-ascensions of self-picked domains from now on.
Then it is done. Making changes to all relevant places... now.
Thats a good question, Aboleth. Where *do* we want to go first?
I'd like to reach Verda eventually, but I was thinking of starting with Lor'quhan... mostly because Anubis and I have been talking for a long time about what might happen when an Illithid tries to eat the brain of a Manyu... or a Blattaria for that matter. Thoughts?
Wherever you want is fine. Prayog will happy as long as there's bloodshed. If I suggested the world eaters instead of the blighted spirits, how would webweaver respond?
well, webweaver is still hoping to use them, but he might laugh at your single-mindedness and aquiesce :D
Hello, everyone. Sorry I haven't been here for quite a while-- I had to go take care of some more important things.
So, how's everyone been doing? And what all did I miss during my absence?
Xeadin! I was just wondering if you were ever going to show up again
And... *chuckles* What haven't you missed? Its been what... four months? Make a god already!
I will in fact make one, but under whoes god should mine be ascended under? And what Domains are still available?
Well, I guess I could make a God of Illusions.
Starting Domain: Illusion
Appearance: Kevmet appears as an elderly man with a black robe that hangs down to his ankles. He has sharp, icy blue eyes and short, blonde hair that is brushed back. He has a tall physique, and has a stout attitude-- in general, he is outgoing. He is infamous for his riddles and puzzles that leaves others that he meets guessing. He is very easy to keep track of, yet nobody knows what dirty tricks he has up his sleeves.
Holy Symbol: A standard rectangular shape with bevelled edges, and an illusory image that looks like an old lady at one glance, and a young woman the next.
How's that, Topheh?
Here's a picture of Kevmet:
Looks great to me. Feel free to post anytime. You start with 6 PP and gain at a rate of 1/day.
Reset has happened... I'll get updated points to everyone tomorrow... its been a long day
Looks good to me, Xeadin. Welcome back
And again, points are coming :\
Don't mean to rush you, Toph, but could you please get the Vok storyline moving.
Heh. Now that that week of doom is over, I intend to do *JUST* that. Look for a slough of posts everywhere tonight.
Edit: Slight change of plans... I've been trying to think up something for the past hour and my mind is completely creavititied-out. So... 75% chance of posts happening tomorrow, not tonight.
So, I understand that there is a daily PP accumulation going on. I haven't responded in the IC Thread for about a week, so I may have 4 or 5 PP to spend-- but when resets occur, do the totals get reset to 0PP or does it not affect PP totals?
So sorry to bother you guys... it's been a while since I've been on here, so I'm a little lost... again...
Soft minds sometimes need a little refresher now and then, you know?
Resets only affect artifacts this time around. You should have however many PP you had before + the number of days since you last spent PP.
Okay. Thanks, Topheh.
And any idea how to add a god to the Wiki? I've been having trouble trying to add Kevmet to the LoC: Lightvoid Wiki...
There you go, Xeadin!
Eklu, I'm very curious as to where you're going with the goo-planet... curious and somewhat worried!
Well guys, I think its time. I'm going to point at the big elephant in the room.
The game is dead and/or dying, and I think its about time we wrap it up. Posting has slowed to a trickle, and I'd rather go out with some sort of planned end than watch it limp along for another month or two.
So I'm thinking that next week's reset (not tomorrow, but the week after), will be the last reset, barring a sudden resurgence of interest. In that time, I'd love it if people could put some final touches on the game... put adventure seeds in, wrap up loose ends, etc, etc.
After that... well, we'll wait and see. Definitely give the game a rest and let us all recover before starting another iteration.
For those who want to know, these are my plans for what I'd like to do before this all is done:
1) The Vok-and-friends move on to Verda in my last post, leaving the end of the game in conflict for people to play with
2) Install and promote Ravnos as a false mouthpiece for Dvrgr
3) Really flesh out my Order
4) Create a more dynamic situation between the Quori and Eye-Kin
5) Send Karhedron searching for Kythandrin
6) Something big involving the Potentium, but... not sure what yet.
I am aware of the world's state of affairs, but I was not informed that there was an elephant present.
In the future please attempt to keep me in the loop as far as large mammals are concerned.
Thank you in advance.

I think that this would be a good time to wrap things up. It would give us all some time to take care of all the stuff that's keeping us from posting. Also, I agree that it would be fun to leave the whole vok war thing open for a campaign.
P.S. Moondoggy! You're back!
Doesn't seem like a whole lot has happened since I had to quit, eh? Not that I really expected it to.. To be honest, I shouldn't even be on right now- my dad apparently thinks that I shouldn't have internet. Ever.
Okay... this is the last reset of Lightvoid. I'm going to give everyone double their usual PP to wrap up any loose ends. Anyone who doesn't feel like posting anything, I'd love to have your PP... I've got a large variety of things I'd like to sprinkle throughout the universe, and I'm gonna need a little bit more PP than I have to do that.
Veok: We should probably talk. I'll be on chat all day. Also, thank you for reminding me about the Blighted Spirits. I... forgot about them They live to fight another day, it would appear.
Heh. I forgot how fun this could be. Now I don't want it to end
Veok, here's what I'm thinking.
I kill one/both of your exarchs (one being Harbringer, but I don't know that) And eat them all up. (yum!)
As the 'transformation' takes place, I have something I want Webweaver to do to Cragnas.
Then, the Harbringer destroys Webweaver from within and the hordes scatter.
Well, my font color changed again. My intent was that Webweaver already "ate" The Harbinger (the "flesh" of Fulrit).
So go ahead to step 2?
Toph, I'm leaving it up to you to conclude the IoW storyline, and explicate the final fates of any other groups I've missed.
Well, I somehow doubt anyone else is going to post, but as I haven't had the time to write a closing post... we'll delay the end until I do so... yes, I am quite selfish :P
And with that, Lightvoid draws to a close. Thank you to everyone for playing and reading. Expect information here soon about the next iteration (name TBA) of the game, and please look at the group forums for the most up-to-date information and to contribute to the planning and rules of the next iteration.
Well, finally got the courage to actually post here, so... um, yay
I have... no idea how long ago it was by now since I just dropped out, but I'd just like to apologize for doing so. Especially since TSO had his hands in pretty much everything that went on, and so his lack couldn't have made things easy... I could make excuses about how I started up a new course, and how work took off, and how I suffered a huge load of burn out, but plenty of other had the same issues and kept posting (kudos to them by the way, they deserve it). At first it was a few days off to take a break, then it was longer, then I was too embarrassed to post again after such a long absence. In retrospect I probably couldn't have continued on in this LoC as I STILL have no idea wth I should have done at that point in the game, but at the very least I could have blatantly said I was dropping off the radar and written TSO out of the game instead of leaving all his actions hanging out there, not to mention the people I was interacting with at the time.
So again, sorry. I hope this LoC ended up ending well despite my laziness.
Calling all would-be gods, spirits, primordials, and Lovecraftian Horrors!
Got an idea for a rule change? Want to vote on the workings of the world? Complaint about a previous iteration of the ruleset? Come to the LoC forums (link below) and vent your opinion!
This is our chance to smooth out the rough spots of the game we've all known and played! Plus, the quicker we can come to a comfortable consensus, the quicker we can launch LoC4!
Heh, although it should be noted that we are going to take a nice healthy break before starting the next iteration, yes... anyone interested in helping with the process, please come to the boards.
Anubis, glad to hear from you again. No worries about the burnout... such things happen. Come on chat soon, k?
It's too bad I couldn't do anything in the end of the game, but ah well. I'm still without internet, so it's not anything I can affect.. Work on Creos has been off an on, and I got a fairly interesting (in my opinion) planar setup written out. My book's up to 18 pages now, it'd be more if I wasn't a lazy bum, lol.
Hopefully I'll get internet back for LoC4, I really loved it. 'specially early on.
Well Hunter, you and your wiki-fu are always welcome back. Hopefully we'll see you around soon!
To those wondering, planning on LoC4 is coming along nicely. If you're waiting for it to start, we hope to be ready to begin by the end of the month.
Hello one and all, long time no see. I was Drahthor all the way back in Lords of Creation 2 and got burned out back then because of.... well because of some things. Anyways, Im at the start of a long and boring summer where my home RP group is going to be out of town, so I thought I might swing back by and try my hand at some Deity action again. I see that my timing is pretty good, as you guys are between games at the moment. Just want to say I would be interested in playing in Lords of Creation 4 when it gets started if that is okay with everyone (notably the game moderators).
Hey, Ritreaude. Glad to see you back in the game. You did miss quite a lot (as I have... ) but I guess LoC 3 had its own problems along the way... which is normal for almost every game made. You're bound to hit some hurdles in progress. I'm in the middle of creating a couple of games myself (well, one of them is complete; the other I have yet to finish...)
I've also finished my first novel- Magi Chronicles: Bashiro Prophecies. You all can view it here.
Anyway, glad to hear from you again.
Hello, guys, aspiring god here hoping to be ascended.
Appearance: A tall, bald goblin with a big smile, covered in patches of craft-related materials(paint, clay, grease, as if he just left a workshop).
Holy Symbol: A candle, burned down to a nub.
I haven't yet looked over how the current game is flowing, but I had played the old one under my old name GhostVampire (I can't even remember how I spelled it.). If there's space in this game I would like to join in.
Edit: I saw there's another thread as well. I'm sorry if I've necroposted on this thread.
