LF Guest Designers

Posted 1 week ago :: Last edited 1 week ago by junijwi

We are going to be looking for guest designers for a Valentine's Advent. I'll be reaching out to people within the next few days ideally, and you'll have the rest of January and half of February to finish a design for the advent.

For those interested, please apply here! If you have designed for us before, a portfolio is not required, however we will also be prioritizing people who have not participated in an advent yet!

Here are also more details on the upcoming advent:

There are two tiers of sales- flatsales for $40 each, and auctions from $60-$120. There will be no designer fee for this advent. Each type of sale has their own rules:

Flatsales

  • Flatsales are $40 each. There will be a 24 hour window where both designs in a set can only be bought together (for $80), then a down time for an hour, and then after that both designs in a set will be free for individual claims.
  • Every adopt will be assigned a theme by the moderators! We will randomly draw a tarot card from the minor arcana.
  • You will be matched with a partner! You will design a character based on either the upright or reversed meaning of the tarot card. Your partner will design a character based on the other meaning of the same card. The idea is to create a pair of characters who could be (but not necessarily are) tied together by fate-- that their lives are apart right now, but their themes overlap and complement one another and could even complete one another. This way, they can be used by the buyers together OR apart.
  • You can sign up in a predetermined pair, or ask to be matched randomly to another artist.
  • We will choose 8 artists total- that is 4 pairs making 8 designs. They will be sold one pair a week starting on February 14th. (Valentine's Day)

Auctions

  • Auction SB is $60, AB is $120
  • Every adopt will be assigned a theme by the moderators! We will randomly draw a tarot card from the major arcana.
  • You will be matched with a partner! You will collaborate on a design for the tarot card for the character. One person will do lines, and the other will do colors.
  • The sale amount will be split evenly between the artists.
  • You can sign up in a predetermined pair, or ask to be matched randomly to another artist. You can request a preference for either lines or colors.
  • We will choose 8 artists total- that is 4 pairs making 4 designs. They will be sold all on March 14th. (White Day)

Questions, comments, concerns? Please feel free to leave a comment on this news post!

[EVENT] In the Wings

Posted 2 months ago :: Last edited 1 month ago by junijwi

It's difficult to covet the distant past when the present itself is so uncertain. The Undertaker has once again opened the invitation to Terralai to all, however this year it is in honor of the large number of those recently lost, rather than those long forgotten... And the Undertaker themselves will not be found there, as for the first time in decades, the corvileyr has taken to the skies for a pilgrimmage to Luto'Eyn.

In the Wings

With the dismantling of the spire, a large breadth of the wilderness has become more accessible to travelers, looters, and scholars. The site of the greater spire itself was once too irradiated with magic to consider exploring-- but now, the risk seems worth the reward. As well as this, Aelius' son, Orry, has begun funding expeditions into the wilderness, expeditions which are spearheaded by Petrel themselves-- what or who are they looking for?

The game has been completely cleared, and in one week to boot! We're blown away by everyone's contributions, and greatly underestimated our player base-- this was a huge learning experience for us, and we'll be keeping it in mind as we plan future events. For those of you who haven't gotten a chance to participate, we apologize, but hopefully we'll have more chances for you in the future! We're already working on content for the next event so that we'll be better prepared to accomodate everyone come this March. In the meanwhile, we'll be providing a further opportunity for small prizes and to talk to some NPC's later this weekend. Thank you all again! We're honored to be playing with you!

Nov 15 - Nov 21

Exploration Rules

The game is similar to minesweep! The board is hidden and you must uncover it to earn prizes. Revealing a blank square will reveal all adjacent blank tiles (but not any hint or occupied tiles). Numbered squares will indicate how many occupied tiles they are touching, including diagonals. Revealing a numbered square will also reveal a hint about the adjacent tile(s). There are good and bad tiles! Both will give prizes, however the bad ones will put your character into peril. When in peril, that character cannot search until you recover- but you can also switch to a different character instead.

Search

Once a week, you can search a tile! Let us know the letter and number of the tile you would like to search. Use the following form and comment in REPLY to the weekly comment, and feel free to add flavortext about your character's search, who they're searching with, etc.

## Searching
**Character:** [ML link](Name or ML Code)

**Tile:** Letter & Number

Extra Search

You can draw (halfbody sketch minimum), write (300 word minimum), or roleplay (5 post minimum, chat rp allowed) your character searching or use one of the scenarios your character stumbles into in order to get an additional search, once per week! Use the following form and REPLY to the moderator's response to your first search attempt for that week. There is no time limit for extra searches- you can do all of your extra searches on the very last day, for example.

## Extra Search
**Character:** [ML link](Name or ML Code)

**Submission:** [Link](Art/Lit/RP)

**Tile:** Letter & Number

Recovery from Peril

Draw (halfbody sketch minimum), write (300 word minimum), or roleplay (5 post minimum, chat rp allowed) the scenario of danger your character encountered OR draw/write them recovering from it in order to recover your character and use them again! You should reply to the comment that put you into peril.

## Recovery
**Character:** [ML link](Name or ML Code)

**Submission:** [Link](Art/Lit/RP)

refreshes every 5 minutes

"-" is an explored tile which contains nothing
"#" such as 1, 2, 3, etc are tiles that contain hints and are touching objectives
"O" are objectives
"X" are objectives which also cause peril


Prompt & Raffle

The Undertaker tells stories during the 11th face of Mylic. Stories of ages past, stories of adventurers long dead... Their stories are our stories, and if we forget them, we are forgetting ourselves. It is also important to pay heed to the living-- reaffirming one's bonds is the way to secure memory, long after your own passing.

Does your character have someone they miss from their past (deceased or no longer interacting)? Do they have someone they fear to lose?

Enter in this month's prompt or spend wagers to enter the raffle! You can spend wagers by submitting a claim (click Add Reward and add the raffle tickets and quantity you'd like. Then attach a number of wagers from your inventory to match).

Raffle rewards (one per winner)

Deadline is December 12th

  • 1 General MYO Slot
  • 1 Choice of Morph
  • 50 Esse
  • 20 Esse
  • 20 Esse
  • 20 Esse
  • 1 Odd Tune
  • 1 Odd Tune
  • Some of the prizes from the search game above will be added to this raffle if NOT found/claimed!

Winter Design Exchange

Hosted by Lasombra

In the discord server, members are hosting a winter design exchange! Those who participate enter a design they've created, and will get a randomized one at the end of the exchange. Please check the #event-signups channel if you're interested in participating. I've copied the rules here as well:

  • Sign ups are from November 1st until the exchange ends, on December 18th. Please be sure to DM your submission to manectric ź™®#0022 on discord before then if you want to be included. On December 19th (probably right after midnight est) they'll be distributing designs to their recipients.
  • You don't have to participate if it doesn't work out! Lasombra will be randomly distributing one design to everyone who submitted a design to keep things simple, and this way no one will lose out on a design because of a partner that didn't finish. No pressure to submit and nothing lost for other participants if you don't! šŸ˜Š
  • The recipient of the design will provide the MYO Slot and any materials needed to make the design viable on site.
  • No species morphs or expensive fysa/aria, please! To keep things simple and affordable, please only do designs that might need color morphs, human morphs, or chance stones/fysa i's. (The exception to this is free subspecies morphs, such as a luto morph on a luraa.) Make sure to note which morphs are needed when you send lasombra the design so they can tell the recipient.
  • The theme of the exchange is "Getting Colder"! Please design with the end of Autumn, Winter, etc in mind!
  • Any species accepted! As long as they follow the specific species' rules, feel free to do whichever you'd like.
  • Your submission must include an unshaded full body with a transparent background for the masterlist. Extra art is allowed, and additional forms in the case of Daemon (coda/requiem) and Leyr (corvileyr) are welcome. Flavortext is also welcome!
  • Please keep it secular! Not everyone celebrates the same holidays, so please avoid concepts like Thanksgiving Luto or Santa Luraa.
  • Sharing WIPs is allowed, but please only do so behind a spoiler warning! They'd like to keep things a surprise for anyone that wants it to be one.

[EVENT] In the Wings Epilogue

Posted 1 month ago :: Last edited 1 month ago by junijwi

The wilderness of Orrison is not to be underestimated-- but neither are the explorers of Orrison, either. Many are ravenous in their pursuit of wealth or discovery-- with an appetite that could inspire, or strike fear into, the hearts of others.

orry.png

Orry seems quite satisfied with progress, in his own way. Those who know him well might even say he's excited-- even as his expression hardly falters, his normally hidden halo appears in brief flashes at the mention of certain pieces of news.

petrel.png

Petrel on the other hand seems quite vexed-- again, in his own way. Those who know him well would say that he's being even more irritating and vague than normal. What more could there possibly be to find out there?

In any case, for the remainder of the month, Orry and Petrel are open for questioning! Respond to their respective comments to start a thread, using your own characters to write queries in character. Talk sprites are not required. You can ask questions in simple text chat roleplay, or by writing out literature roleplay responses. They will try to reply every few days, though we ask for patience if there are a lot of threads ongoing! You can finish your own thread at any time by replying with -end-, or a moderator may do the same if they feel that the thread has hit the end of useful information. You can only have one active thread at a time, but by ending a current thread, you can start a new thread with new characters or questioning a new NPC.

[ADVENT] The Reforged

Posted 3 months ago :: Last edited 2 months ago by junijwi

The Reforged

October 2021 Advent


Adoptable Advent


Whether for better or for worse, those who undergo the hardships of life come out as changed people. Many of those featured in this advent underwent trials rivaling tests given by Ilya, and have come out stronger for it. Whether they use that strength to help, to harm, or to hide, is ultimately a telling aspect of their character.

For every week this month, there will be one Free Raffle on Mondays, and Guest Auctions on Saturdays featuring designs made by guest artists! Auctions will post previews 12 hours ahead of time (4 AM CST) and open for bids at 4 PM CST. Keep an eye on sales for all upcoming advent designs!

advent_october_ft1.jpg

There will also be a large free-for-all flatsale at the end of the month, on the 31st.

All designs will be $80. Previews will go up at 4 AM CST, and claims will open at 4 PM CST.

It is first come, first served, but buyers can only claim one design in the first 24 hours. After 24 hours, multiples may be purchased.

Gift Advent


Many twists of good fortune are attributed to Ilya's favor during the 10th month of Mylic.

Once a day for the month of October, you can visit the advent page to claim a free gift! If you visit every day, there is also a bonus prize at the end of the month.

You can visit the advent page through the gift box on the user menu (top right in desktop, or in the menu on mobile).

Current Events

October 2021


Raffle Prompt


When humans first came to Orrison, they wore masks to blend in among the myriad of magical creatures. This tradition has persisted up to today, and has spread among all the species-- during Ilya's month, it is common to wear mask or costume to confuse malignant spirits. Masks decorate dwellings, front doors, shops, and other places as well.

Complete Ilya's Children to get the award for this year, plus be entered into the raffle!

1 MYO Slot
1 Choice of Morph Item
1 Fysa Tincture
20 Esse

Hello all!

We are going to be looking for guest designers for an october advent. I'll be reaching out to people within the next few days ideally, and you'll have the rest of september to finish a design for the advent.

For those interested, please apply here with an updated portfolio! Some advent specific questions have been added so i encourage all to apply even if theyve done so before.

August 2021

Posted 5 months ago :: Last edited 5 months ago by junijwi

Hello all! First, we'd like to thank everyone for a wonderful first year on the site! All of our members have been lovely participants in the events thus far, and we're very excited about how well the lorekeeper system has worked for us.

Moving forward, we will be adjusting the schedule for future events for Orrison to make activities more sustainable for both members and moderators and to avoid burnout! The cycle will generally be:

  • 1 month for developing content (new fauna, system updates, site updates, feature updates, rebalancing, lore additions and expansions)
  • 1 month focus on adoptables (guest designer advent/schedule)
  • 1 month plot event (2 big prompts a year, 1 big chat RP event a year, for 3 plot events a year total)
  • 1 month break

With minor prompts in all months as well! Having just wrapped up the huge plot event in July, we're on a break month for August, and will be working on content in September. That being said, this month you can complete the Bounty of Ivei 2020 prompt for the old achivement and a bunch of rep, and we'll also be doing Newcomer invites!

Newcomer Invites

It's time for Newcomer Invites!

This month, anyone who already owns an Orrison character (whether closed species or a human) is able to also extend an invitation to their friends. Invited friends will getĀ 10 Esse, enough to purchase a First Time Owner Slot. If your friend completes their MYO before the end of the month, you can also getĀ 5 Esse! You can invite multiple people.

People who join this month but don't have anyone to invite them canĀ still submit for this prompt, and instead of rewarding 5 Esse to your friend, your 5 Esse for completion will go into a raffle for the event! Anyone is elligible for theĀ raffle (be sure to enter the raffle by clicking on the enter button).

NEW MEMBERS

  1. You must not have claimed Newcomer Invites rewards in the past; your account must have 0 Esse and no Characters/MYO slots.
  2. Submit to this prompt with the following:
    "I am a Newcomer and I am being invited by ___."
    OR
    "I am a Newcomer and I am joining by myself."
  3. That's it! Once approved, you'll get 10 Esse which you can use at theĀ MYO Shop.
  4. Create your MYO! Once complete and accepted, your friend can also submit to this prompt with a link to your character to claim their 5 Esse.

CURRENT MEMBERS

  1. Once your friend completes their character, submit to this prompt with the following:
    "I am a Member and I am claiming the following invitees."
  2. Add the characters of all completed MYO's using their ML codes (MYO-###).
  3. You may submit all at once, or multiple times. Newcomers who have already completed their MYO'sĀ are allowed to invite others and claim their esse as well!

RAFFLE

Be sure to enter yourself in theĀ raffle for all the unclaimed newcomer esse! Though it is listed as 1 prize for now, there will be multiple 5 Esse prizes (one for every unclaimed newcomer).

Bounty of Ivei 2020

Don't forget that you can also submit for the Bounty of Ivei prompt for 30 rep and a bag! This is a food related prompt, where you can draw food, roleplay, write a recipe, or even cook food!

Luraa & Updates!

Posted 6 months ago :: Last edited 6 months ago by junijwi

Hello all!

First, thank you all for your participation in recent events! Spirestorm was great fun, and it was wonderful to see everyone's characters participating and actively changing the story. It means a lot to us that participants devote their time and passion into developing Orrison into this collaborative narrative. Most of the events of the most recent chat rp event have been summarized here!

With the completion of this event, the eras have shifted and we have moved into a new age! You can read about the Age of Dusk here! This has mostly had an effect on the weather of the world, influencing technology and storm chasing (which is now known as haze dancing).

Finally, last year's prompt is open for submission if you missed the Award/achivement for it! And this month you can complete the After the Storm prompt for an Award and also a Free Luraa MYO!

[EVENT] Spirestorm

Posted 7 months ago :: Last edited 6 months ago by junijwi

The strongest Aria Storms happen at the beginning of May-- however this season has passed in an almost unnerving calm...


SPIREBREAK

Chapter 1

  • Duration

    June 4 - July 10th

  • A storm swells within the spire, trapped until it reaches a breaking point. As the fury of its elements are unleashed, a force echoes through the collective dreamscape, alarming all.

WARDSONG

Chapter 2

  • Duration

    June 15th - July 6th

  • Aria's song seems to have had different meanings for all those it reached, however its warning is clear-- adapt or perish.

CROWNFALL

Chapter 3

  • Duration

    July 8th - July 10th

  • The power unleashed seems to awaken a god or... few? Fys must be confronted, but help comes from many unexpected places.


Spirebreak

Chapter 1

Storm season passes without incident- instead of the harsh torrent of the aria storm and the following clarity of weather, the world is plagued by a persistent and annoying humidity and drizzle. The change causes unease, which only grew as time passed.

The weather does not deter work in Kinstead. Aelius erects a barrier around the lesser spire, and rumours spread that whatever work is ongoing within its limits are what are causing the lack of storms. Many wonder if he's 'solved it'- if his goal was taming the forces of nature and fixing the problems his ancestors caused with the Senescence.

Through this calm, those in Immitheus are able to take the opportunity to fortify their city, and they even are able to help repair the teleport in Ichorrai by referencing the technology they uncovered. Life even returns to a resemblance of normalcy in Ichorrai and Ynochrin.

Then the spire breaks.

A great force rips through the spire itself, causing the entire world to shudder. Quakes plague the earth, exposing new ruins and burying old ones. The crystal spire itself cracks and even shatters, its coloration warping and darknening in jagged splotches and veins through the normally blue crystal, and the sound of it is like superheated glass exploding. From every crack and break spews a miasma, not unlike the storms that it normally produces, but much heavier, much thicker, and absolutely unceasing. The miasma covers the world in a matter of days, darkening the skies.

At the same time, everyone in the world experiences a dream simultaneously. It begins as a whistling scream echoing the sounds of the spire's destruction, and plunges each individual into their own personal vision:

You stand in a vast cavern where a great beast sleeps. The cavern is so large, you cannot see its dark edges, and the darkness is so heavy that your eyes hallucinate stars as pinpricks in the blackness. The breath of the creature before you is laborous and ragged, and you can smell the sickness and pain rolling off of its body even from a distance. Someone is holding your hand, and though you cannot see them in the dark, you know who it is-- a loved one, a family member, a stranger... the figure varies from dreamer to dreamer. They say that it has been a very long time since they've seen you, even if you had only seen them just yesterday in the waking world. Then they apologize. Fys is waking up, and that cannot come to pass. If Fys' dream ends, then it will reclaim every shard of its soul, one way or another, and every being on Orrison will die.

The Aria's lullaby has been interrupted, her song changed to a scream, but now she is free to use her voice to freely guide you- to wield your intelligence, your determination, your strength, or simply your life. Is the beast in front of you Fys? Surely it cannot be-- though it is large, it is too small to be the entire world, you think. You feel it may be someone else, but someone important. As you awaken, you feel both a deep dread and the sense that you are loved- both by Aria's voice, and by whatever awakens beneath your feet.

The lesser spire is visible from Ichorrai, and also is the first settlement hit by the miasma. With Aelius gone, protocol is swiftly broken and those who shelter on the top of the city are allowed within the Sanctum, collared or not. This is proven to be a good call-- the moment the miasma hits the barrier, it hisses and bubbles but ultimately does not penetrate. Those who are consumed by the miasma seem to be in great agony before simply vanishing.

Precious minutes are saved with the teleport, and those in Immitheus are able to find similar defenses mirroring those in Ichorrai within their city. A barrier is erected and the people are safe. Those in Ynochrin seem to continue to be protected by Ynoch's tree, even though the goddess herself was dead. At Kinstead, the initial blast inside of the wall erected around the spire destroyed much of what was built there, however a blue splinter of the spire landed near the outpost itself and seems to be offering some minor counteracting effects... Lastly, Lireah's weather magic conducted by the Kheiraa there seems to also protect it from the miasma.

Ā 


Prompt Submission


There is one event prompt due July 10th! You will gain an award for participation for this event, as well as entry to this month's raffle. You can submit one time for this chapter. In addition, last year's event prompt can be completed to gain last year's event award/badge!

Chapter 1 Raffle
(one per winner)

General MYO Slot
Luto MYO Slot
Luto Morph
20 Esse
20 Esse
1 Odd Tune
1 Odd Tune
15 Scrap

Participation in Chapter 1 is NOT required to participate in other chapters.


Wardsong

Chapter 2

Aria exerts her influence and those who work alongside her wishes seem bolstered by extra energy and inspiration. In the destruction of her spire, many pieces of the original column of crystal still exist, hovering in place where they broke, but many smaller pieces were sent flying miles away from the force of the blast, landing in perhaps the most convenient of places. The shards which have been discoloured black spew miasma, but those which remain blue seem to repel that miasma...


Discord Research


PROGRESS must be completed to succeed this step of the plot. Mercenaries, merchants, explorers, and others are able to roll to accumulate RESOURCES. Scientists, researchers, scholars, and artisans can roll to convert RESOURCES into PROGRESS.

In the discord server's #event-signups channel, you can make a daily RESOURCE or PROGRESS attempt with one character on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. In performing this action, you roll a 1d20 (one twenty sided die) to measure your success. Before making your roll, you state which character you are using and their intended action. While you can leave it vague, specifying your actions may positively or negatively affect your chances of success depending on its difficulty, your character's specialty, and other flavortext.

Please use the following form to make an attempt:

Character Name: Name
Masterlist Entry: (put the link in carrots to turn off preview)
Action: Either "Gather Resources" or "Develop Progress".
Flavortext: Optional but may affect the result positively or negatively.

Then, you can make a roll with the following command:

>>roll 20

A moderator will reply with your results.


Crownfall

Chapter 3

It was discovered that those who disappeared in the miasma were actually transformed into enormous monsters controlled by the re-awakened and corrupted godling Fys. The bodies of these people could be found inside the mass of miasma that formed the monsters, and they could be retrieved by destroying their forms. Those who were retrieved were in a deep slumber.

The miasma itself was a result of the spire becoming corrupted. Aelius swallowed a remnant of the god Fys, and attempted to use it to control or remove the spire, a manifestation of Aria. This backfired however, and the spire instead became corrupted by Fys' influence. Portions of it transformed from aria shards to fys shards, and when the two crystals touch it causes explosive force, which shattered much of the spire.

unknown.png

This sent many shards scattering across the world, and the changes also transformed what normally would be aria storms into a fys miasma. The force also awakened the sleeping Fys, their influence causing hallucinations, spectres, and other phenomenon.

Sophia, Vera, Dakota, and Rieka went through one of the fys shards which acted as a portal to Kinstead, the site of the blast, and there they confronted Aelius who asked them to destroy him while he still had control of the artifact inside of himself. They fought a fys-influenced version of him, and retrieved the remnant of Fys, a glass eye.

The moment they ended Aelius, several others who had been in contact with spectres of Fys were pulled into Fys' last dream. Zeffer, Lelune, Rowan, Pumpkin, and Veraiddhel were again asked by Aelius' dying spirit to find Fys and put it back to sleep. They dived deep into the dream, encountering several visions such as what might have been Mylic, before Lelune located Fys' eye and embraced it. Having already bonded with Fys during the course of th event, the daemon's embrace purified the eye of Fys, stopping people from turning into monsters in the miasma and awakening the affected dreamers.

Another group found research in the labs of Immitheus which indicated that scientists once tried to create vessels to summon and trap the gods in. Lastly, a group went to Luto'Eyn through another portal of fys, a corrupted pool beneath Ynochrin. The mountain was being disturbed and controlled by another eye of Fys, hinting that there might be many more yet out there.


Discord RP Event


On July 8th and July 10th there will be a roleplay event held in the server.

Each member may participate on ONE day (either July 8th or July 10th) with ONE character (the character does not have to be the same as the one used in previous chapters).

Please comment below to sign up for a day!

The rare trait Coda allows a daemon to reach its fully awoken form and assume the form of any of the other species, as well as start learning that species' fysa.

The rare trait Requiem allows a daemon to reach its fully awoken form and assume their true form similar to fys, more references are in the species sheet.

[EVENT] Archivistry

Posted 9 months ago :: Last edited 9 months ago by junijwi

The 4th face of Mylic is a month for study-- and it a favorite month of naturalists.

Normally, those who find the most interest flora or fauna and present it to the Archivist for her records may be given a boon... This year, she has a special request.


Archivistry

Chapter 1

  • Duration

    Apr 5 - Apr 18

  • The Archivist moves. She believes there is a possible link between Immitheus and her lost Archives in Lireah, and asks others to help...

Ascension

Chapter 2

  • Duration

    Apr 19 - Apr 31

  • After uncovering the secrets of Immitheus, teleportation to Lireah has been found-- along with its current inhabitants...


Archivistry

Chapter 1

Lireah was the original home of the Archivist. It is the home to her original archives, a spiralling conch structure of a library built into the mountainside, and a testament to her dedication to the preservation of history. Lireah was so important that she feared any who had control of it might have too much power-- so with the help of her archivists, she detached the entire city from the earth and floated it into the sky. The Archivist has no idea where it exists now-- its drifting course is controlled by those who live on it, and she believes it unlikely there are any leyr who survived the storms left in her city. Her best hope is that the library's seal remains in place to keep her treasure of knowledge safe inside.

The Archivist holds the belief that wherever the library exists, it might still be accessible through the old teleportation network that used to connect all of the major cities of Orrison. Ichorrai's is broken now, its outgoing pad destroyed when refugees fled to the moon-- only its incoming pad is in tact. These structures used to be vital pieces of infrastructure-- but while all the cities were connected, they were also divided by politics, power, and war. Many of these systems were not left unguarded or out in the open, and she knows Immitheus' is somewhere in its deep belly.

Now that the threat of war has ebbed, the Archivist herself has left Ichorrai for Immitheus to oversee the plumbing of the old city's depths. This year, her boon will be granted to those who provide the greatest assistance.


Discord Research


In the discord server's #event-signups channel, you can make a daily research attempt with one character on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays. In performing this action, you roll a 1d20 (one twenty sided die) to measure your success. Before making your roll, you state which character you are using and their intended action. While you can leave it vague, for example, the default "searching Immitheus for a teleport pad", specifying your actions may positively or negatively affect your chances of success depending on its difficulty, your character's specialty, and other flavortext.

Please use the following form to make an attempt:

Character Name: Name
Masterlist Entry: (put the link in carrots to turn off preview)
Action: Searching Immitheus! Or other flavortext.

Then, you can make a roll with the following command:

>>roll 20

A moderator will reply with your results. Some rolls in combination with interesting actions may merit Esse, Items, or other rewards.

Ascension

Chapter 2

In the inner workings of Immitheus, through delights and dangers of the maze that exists of the city's infrastructure, explorers finally found the teleportation portal. Passage was secured!

It was a wonder to learn that Lireah still sailed in the sky-- and even more of a wonder, still, to learn who piloted it. They are descendants of Rhotian rrex who won a gamble with Viis-- unable to escape to the moon and dying of poisoning, several crews of sky pirates proposed a race to the flying city of Lireah against Viis. Rather than race itself, Viis chose a champion-- it promised the one team of rrex that whether or not they won the race, they would live... but if they did win, they would become true gods and all the other Rhotians would die.

That team of rrex chose to throw the race, allowing the species as a whole to survive. Viis took them and reformed them so that they would survive in the new world-- it saw that their bones remembered Kheir, remembered her smallness, and remembered her resilience. It reverted them to their old forms-- and as a gift for their wonderful racing, gave them back Kheir's lost wings.
