I'm still waiting for Toph to post the follow-up to the Dwarves me mentioned working on this past monday...
Raven, good to see you!
Or your type font.
While you are here, what is the satus of your... following? Do you have one? WHat are they like, and how do the majority of people know/worship Sa?
I would like to know before implimenting some ideas with offical gods of High Ithol.
Oh, it'll be good... I just need to get the time to write it. :D
In other news, where in the world has Thought gone? I think we're all waiting for him to post for his characters...
You are? Shoot. For some reason, I thought I was waiting on you. I'll definitely have something up tomorrow.
Perhaps there is a connection between a lack of posting and people waiting for each other with little to communication on what to post.
We should work on that.
In other news, does anyone want to talk about Timmy? Where to go, what to do and all that jazz? Anyone have anything in particular they would like to see happen?
Forgotten, I've moved the dwarves along. We can still go with our original plan if we collapse the tunnel :D
I do want Timmy to request the aid of the Agni'Vohda at some point... I have some stuff I want to write for them still to set up how they work more fully.
Also, Forgotten. Those western continents... I've put a beast and a biome on them... can I put a sentient race? Don't want to trample on your plans too much.
Okay. I have two in mind that I'll put there in the next two weeks. One doesn't speak Common (but their language has already been spoken!)
If you're willing to share, what are your overall plans for that part of the world? Want some help?
Huh, as far as I can tell, it's just you, Topheh, who is waiting on a response from me (artun to agni). Anyone else?
I'll tell you my plans tomorrow. Late night at the moment. And... YES. I would LOVE some help with shaping the western continent.
@Pen: Was that enough disillusionment?
And Are you still hanging around here, James? Just want to know if you are here.
Its fairly simple overall. My main focus is on two things: creating a slightly more ordered/safe area than the ravages of the the Eastern continent, and building multiple kingdoms. That's not to say that i want a West=Peace, East=War dicotomy, just a little more balance. I am also planning on opening up a relationship between East and West given that the majority of the East have no idea there is a West...
Another fun idea is if a dragon race was native to the West, as opposed to the others.
The main problem I am having is that embellishing a continent by myself, especially when i have many evil plans I wish to carry forward, is quite expensive.
And you're right, the continents need a name.
I propose Westeros and Easteros.
No, I'm not drawing either of those names from anything, really. Why do you ask?
Now I have a question, Thought don't you need the owners persmission before you can modify a greater plane?
Also, just cause I haven't posted, doesn't mean I'm not paying attention. I'm keeping an eye on things from afar....
Joran, no, you don't. I'll explain why, in a moment, but rules aside, if you'd rather I change the action, please do feel free to say so. I'd be absolutely thrilled to work with you to develop something more interesting.
Anywho, traditionally, demi-planes were the ones that were under the sole ownership of the god that created them (and so yes, one needed permission to meddle with those), while greater planes were the ones that devolved to public control after a week or two of exclusive control (and so, no, one did not need permission to meddle with those). I checked through the rules to see if that had changed for this iteration, but there was nothing along those lines, either way.
I'm quite glad that you're still watching. Post! We miss the dear old god of death.
EDIT: Forgotten, Topheh, given that only worshippers of Azgo are on the western continent, it seems only proper that they get to name it (and you've been quite good with the naming, Forgotten, so I'm sure you'll come up with something awesome). I have no ideas about the eastern continent, alas. Perhaps "Susan"? That's always a LoC fave.
And yeah, Thought is right. Minor planes are player-owned, but major ones are... modifiable. Which, of course, means you can modify it right back.
Hey guys! Sorry I basically dropped off the map like that. This has been a pretty crazy semester for me for a lot of reasons, but now school is done and I suddenly have lots of free time on my hands. And what is LoC if not a free-time-filler? My god was originally going to be a good counter-part to Thought's god, and I wouldn't want to start anything new so close to the end of the game. So I guess if anyone has anything they want to tie up or get done before the end, I can play the nice guy who helps you complete your goals, rather than the bad guy who messes them up. :D
Thought, if you're still around, might you delete the bit about the Azure Dragons felling the Behemoth? I've a longer post in progress to tie up that loose end.
(And while we're at it, I'd like to make Gold dragons from the "death" of Artun's beauty.
And then have the Gold and White Dragons maim the Zizu... )
Most certainly, Raven, consider it done!
I had thought you were done, there, so I had just wanted to make it clear that your beasties were victorious.
Ara, all things considered, your children (aka, the suns) have been much abused, in no small part by TASOE. Seems like a good time for Good to make a comeback.
I like Gold Dragons.
If we still want dragonborn, I have an idea for that. We still want dragonborn from the last orb, yes?
Oh, and a thought for the endgame. I can't remember another game where the gods have been *quite* so asinine to the mortals. What if the mortals banish us?
Well Ara, if you are looking for something to do or some one to play, I do have this exarch of order over here that could use a bit of screen time......
And Thought I was just making sure. I've been clueless to what to do since I've nearly destroyed the world once indirectly..... I figured the world could have used a reprieve from constant death, but then again it wouldn't be a LoC otherwise now would it! This has given me some ideas, that I'm mulling over. Maybe we aren't at an end game just yet!
Also Toph, this would be an awesome tie-in to your earlier suggestion how it ends. If I remember correctly new gods arose on that new plane oh so long ago, and this could be the precurser to just that!
I reccomend picking up another domain. It helps.
Well, the problem with Culthet is that we need to get rid of all the gods, AND kill off all of the mortals. That's... honestly, I want a more positive ending than that
we don't have to kill off everyone....... but that doesn't mean a large chunk cant go off in a massive cataclysm
I am probably biased by only having participated in this game once, but I am unsure if our goal for the endgame should be to establish a loose continuity of some sort withm previous games rather than examining the ending that fits this LOC the best and allowing it to stand independently.
Merely my thoughts however.
Oh, and great to see yuo again Ara! Hope to see you posting soon. Do you want in on the Hero of the Ages storyline I am trying to revive at the moment?
Wait a sec... Forgotten, did you just kill off Cantorix?
And yeah... the Culthet idea was nice, but... I'm liking some other ideas now too!
It might very well get him killed, yes. But not yet, no. Sorry for any confusion or lack of clarity.
Currently, he's on the frontlines battling dragonspawn and has just slipped into the rage that is inside all black dragons. Although now that i think about it, his death might be interesting...
Forgotten, what do you think about turning the Impaled Leviathan into a sort of "Eternal Proving Ground" for the dragons, where the Dragons make it their mandate to continuously attack the undying Leviathan and the dragonspawn it births, keeping it (effectively) pacified ad infinitum?
That sounds fun.
I'm a little sad that its at the Moot, but that doesn't seem likely to change. I'm all for it.
I'd like to gather all of the dragon colors together at the Mootstone, if possible. Can we make those Gold dragons quickly, and can we get some non-violent White Dragons as well?
Raven, would you say that there are two groups of Balor now? Those that I created, and then those that are the body of the behemoth, or would you say that there is only one group (all immortal mini behemoths)? Also, and I guess this would go to the admins as well, does that make the Balor an exarch race? Just curious how to play them.
As for the leviathan (and the Zizu), my thought had originally been to use their bodies to construct the demiplane that was eventually going to be TASOE's body. Seemed that ruin husks of exarchs would be appropriate. Not that things have to go that way, mind, but I thought it would be good to share what my thoughts had been.
Forgotten, by any chance would Azgo like to kill one of the First? If we're heading towards end game, I thought it might be nice if Azgo finally got revenge.
@Everybody but in response to Pen: Why yes, I would quite enjoy the destruction of a Firstborn. I think it would add a lot of weight and credibility to Azgo's machinations in-universe. And I would like to do that regardless of endgame distance.
There seems to be one prime candidate among us. James said that Pruinus was fair game for destruction, and it seems that no one is particularly interested in either interacting with her or her creations (come to think of it, there is not a lot of mantle passing about here. Onus' giants and Gelab Duhr, Rimmon's Nightwalkers, Pruinus' Nix). It would also be nice thematically: first to challenge Azgo, first to be destroyed.
My original plan was to help the Firstborn in their battles against the godbeasts and then slip away in the later part of the battle for some assassination. But it seems that both A): the godbeasts are not the threat they used to be, and B): Agni, Father Thorn, and Zebus are either partially inactive or frozen in time during a conversation everbody is waiting for someone else to advance.
So what If I instead sneak out through the Abyss-Great Beyond link and do some more subtle work in dispatching Pruinus untill the very end?
Comments, thoughts, problems, questions?
@Ara: No problem at all. To be honest, I'm not sure what I "need" per say as I have not planned anything too detailed nor specific. Nobody seems intent on controlling him despite earlier approval and the plan for him was lost with James. So basically I am commendeering him for the time being to launch an arc of my own. You could do a whole bunch of stuff. He could use an adventuring companion, a player controller, or some brainstorming on cool things he could do. If anything appeals to you or you have a question, feel free to ask.
@Raven. Yeah, I want every dragon color there when we make some dragonborn with the last orb.
@Forgotten. I was actually about to do something with the Nix... but... I... appear to have forgotten what it was, unfortunately.
Shadow, are you still around?
And yes, let us please move this Thought/Pen/Me/Shadow/Sa(?) thing forward. TASOE, we must find you!
Ah, thanks. Would have missed it. Won't be able to reply till tomorrow night, sadly.
I think TASOE is... where... TASOE is.
Veok, Forgotten, expect tags for both of you by the end of the night. Actually, Raven, can you brief me on what the other side of the Umbrage looks like? (I assume there is another side, but I'm being forgetful.)
Ah, Thought, sorry to confuse you. I was giving you (as Artun) or Toph (as... Agni) the chance to create Gold Dragons. I'm waiting for Gold Dragons to be created to meet at the moot, so Toph can create Dragonborn.
Hey Toph, you there?
You said you wanted the Insuannen hunted yes? Did you have any other plans/ideas with them?
I'm sure something will come to me soon, but that was about as far as I got with them. Going to try and get an exarch out of all of this since Raven so helpfully prevented the LAST time I tried to make this exarch by inventing stupid translation magic
Thought- I haven't had time to get into it, but Agni isn't really sure which part of him is... him... anymore.
Sorry for vanishing. I should post4 in the next few days. Things got hectic at work.
Like a mid day breeze, here and gone.
And before anyone gets ansy, I did not kill anything! I just sent it flying out of my realm! :P
Hey Joran, nice to see you again!
In other news, it seems it is my turn to vanish for a time. Starting Friday, I won't be able to get at a computer for about ten days or so. If anyone has anything pressing that they want from me, ask and ask quickly.
Well, I'm off for ten days or so. Here's my actions when appropriate:
Unless someone vehemently disagrees with my self-chosen mission, Azgo will move to engage the thousands of Balor in the East when the planning meeting is finished.
If this moves faster than i anticipate, and someone is waiting on Azgo to attack the Balor or if Thought wants to describe the attack from his side, then Azgo unleashes the Craterspawn hordes on the Balor. Their tactics are mainly to harry, contain, and cripple rather than a full out do-or-die attack. Azgo seems mysteriously absent from the battlefeild however.
Maybe that will be necessary, maybe not. But its there.
Sorry guys, had a crazy weekend and missed the reset. I'll get it up after I get this post finished to move stuff along.
I think its fairly obvious that this game is drawing to an end. I think a logical ending would be the battle of the Gods with TASOE, followed by a week of 'aftermath' posts and then we call it finished while we still have some motivation left. What do people think?
Also, Raven, please find me on Steam... or tell me if you had any particular plans for the Gold Dragons being created. If not, I'm probably going to make them momentarially.
Still here. You said if I didn't have any plans, you were making gold dragons, no?
Well, I figured someone *cough* THOUGHT *cough* might, you know, help me not double post. Guess I'll make some dragons...
Veok, will Sa get upset if Agni moves the Beacon to rejoin the other Suns?
Back in black!
I hit the sack!
I've been too long I'm glad to be back!!
(Intense Rockout session including enough fireworks to make the 4th of July look like a sputtering sparkler, free money falling from the sky by the armful, and water buffalo)
YES!! I"M BACK!!!
And i see that not all is well. Let's talk.
*blinks slowly in your general direction, dazzled by your exuberance*
Yeah. Looks like we may have lost Thought, which is... a problem, given our proposed endgame.
Still, one superbeast to kill, and then some strange spirits to find and banish from existence or some such thing. Not *that* difficult
Terribly sorry, Toph. I fell into the cleverly disguised trap called Bioshock Infinite. Send food when available, I'm getting desperate.
Anyone care to advance the moot, or what is going on then?
I'll be in mibbit if possible.
Yeh, I'll advance the Moot in a little. Keep hoping to have more to respond to, sadly :|
No, I know how to get to Mibbit and search for rooms. But every time i search #LoC, the room doesn't come up. There apparently is no chatroom called #LoC Lords of Creation.
Oh, that's probably because its empty
Type this in: /join #LoC
That will get you there.
Okay, enough is enough. Lets settle some things.
It seems that we've all fallen into some sort of unspoken pact to let the game die out on its own. Is that tue? Is this game over, or not?
I have more i want to post but there has been little activity as of late. I have been hesitating to post out of doubts in its effectiveness. So are we going to plan and carry out the ending we wanted for this game or are we going to suffocate it to death like the many people who joined this game and vanished?
I apologize if i come off as aggresive, but I am growing tired of ambiguity.
The problem is that all of the endgame necessitates Thought (or taking control of Thought), since TASOE is the only loose end (well, and the Zizu) in need of resolving.
So that was set up when Thought was around, and now he's not.
I suppose the question then becomes, are we okay with puppet-ing Thought to trap / exile / susan his god?
It certainly would be poetic justice to make TASOE it/themselves a puppet deity :D
But yeah, at the moment the main 'plot' of the game is... a little stalled as it relies on him... doing things. I'll try again to get in touch with him and get him to move things along, or at least move things to a point where we don't have to wait for him to post before we can move on. If not... we'll find other means to... extract... the information. And yes, that means Azgo gets to have fun while we all look on and feel vaguely sick to our stomachs.
As for the rest...
Yeah, I'll move the Moot along. Sa, I've been waiting for you to continue the adventures of the Azer Galfe, but I'll do something with that if you aren't interested.
And I'd still like to come up with a way to recreate the one destroyed orb that made the black dragons. Any ideas, folks?
That said, lets come up with a few new things to talk about as well. Anyone have any ideas? I'd love to flesh out the Chitrachs a little more if there is anyone who would like to interact with them. Plus I still have another race for the new continents that... I'm working around to posting. Hopefully my paper will be done in the next hour, then I'll have plenty of time to post again.
I vote for the destruction of Ka'Vah. He's helpless at the moment anyway. Perhaps fate took away his power for a purpose...
Possible Loose ends/posting ideas:
1. Insuannen and the Itholians
4. The West, anything really
5. Healing the East's wounds
6. Update on the Giants and Gelab Duhr
7. Update on the Agni'Vodha
8. The Moot
9. Destruction of Pruinus/Leaf
10. Creation of new Monsters (I'm up for a lot of stuff)
11. Actuslly using the Forge of Thereus for something besides aesthetics
12. Creation of Dragonborn
13. More description of what the Plane of Fire is
As for new things, like what? Anything seem lacking?
Also, I'd be more than willing to interact with the Chitrachs.
Ah. Indeed. I knew there was another Exarch I needed to kill
Here's my list of goals.
1) Develop the mistrust of the world for the Gods and create an organization that worships the God before the Gods (the one who made all the firstborn)
2) Introduce at least two new races to the west
3) Return all the suns to the sky
4) Make the Dragonborn (this will happen quickly, I think)
5) Resolve Sil Arkesh and... whatever I called the new home of the dwarves in the mountains.
6) Develop the Source of Fire more, perhaps through the use of the Forge of Thereus.
7) Make some more exarchs. Do I even have one? Ka'Vah doesn't count.
8) Find TASOE, banish him, and... in some way draw the game to a close by doing so. Perhaps we all get sucked out into the void or something :D
... Of course I have an exarch. I'm posting as him right now *smacks self on head*
I'm present..... I'm just not doing anything. I never got a response on my last post, so I assumed I was being ignored by the gods present. And until he's addressed or has something to contribute, he's simply hanging out and listening and gathering what info he can on the personalities and thought proccesses of the other gods.
The game is ending. I've got no strings or loose ends to tie up anywhere else, so I'm in for the main action. Which is currently stalled by the absence of our primary antagonist.
I've not really had a lot of time to make even minor posts between work, keeping up with posts and then going to origins. I'll try to post after work if I can find time (posting from phone at worl now). But i'm also not going to start anything new in a declining game when I can save the idea for a new one. If we decide we aren't finishing this game soon, then its a dofferent animal.
If Thought doesn't reappear by Thursday/Friday, I will begin using Sa's domain of prophecy to "puppet" TASOE, mostly in terms of correctly predicting what he will be doing, ergo handling what he is doing.
I got ahold of Thought. He's completely swamped with a variety of things and apologizes for not being able to post. He proposes we basically make up a location for where TASOE is, although he did state "Oh, so you just want to know where TASOE is right now? When I left off, I was going to have him jump out of Shadow and slap down Seg/Artun" When I expressed surprise that TASOE was hiding in Shadow's God, he stated: "TASOE is always where there is evil, and Shadow's evil, so.... "
So, it seems to me that we have our next steps. TASOE leaps out (of somewhere) as a mass of evil spirits, strikes down Seg and Artun just as they are about to spill the beans, and then races off, with our gods in hot pursuit. We have one final, world-scarring battle, banish the spirits of evil (or imprison them in a newly reforged mega-sun... in continuing the theme of 'Agni's a jerk', I half feel like ending the game by making the world a desert would be... fitting. :D Or, you know, I could just make Summer, as we've defined all the other seasons by now.
So who wants to start this whole thing moving? Sa getting a 'bad feeling about this' seems like an appropriate way to begin to me!
Regardless, Dragonborn creation is incoming, as is some drama over in the West. Going to try and have the former up tonight, the latter up tomorrow, as well as a few more tags to try and get things rolling. Got to find Umbra and kill him, too :D
Hey! Tell him I object to being called evil. I don't think my god is evil. Deceptive as all hell, but that doesn't necessarily mean evil.
Once this "chase" begins, Azgo will probably slink away to destroy Pruinus and/or Father... Bramble was it? That all right with everyone?
And as a side note to Toph: If Paren does not heal Cantorix, he will die. Not to say that I want Cantorix to live, or want him to die, but that is a decision you must make.
Fine by me. Looks like Pen has vanished somewhere as well
And... oh, yeah, that. :D
