[EVENT] Remembrance

Posted 3 weeks ago :: Last edited 1 week ago by junijwi
UPDATE: Mystery Gift assignments have been sent out, either through Discord or deviantArt Notes. Your deadline is the end of this month! If you have any questions or concerns, please note/DM Juni in response!

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.

P.1 - Mystery Gift

World of Orrison is hosting its Secret Santa event this November! In part, this is to avoid overlapping events with other groups. You can participate by joining the prompt, and there are some pretty hefty rewards this time around! If you miss the signup window or cannot draw, there is an alternate option for completing the prompt as well, but you can only submit to the prompt once so choose whichever will be more fun for you!

P. 2 - The undertaker

The Undertaker allows audiences with the general public during this month, and it is especially apt to hold service after Ynoch sacrificed the last pieces of herself to save the community and purify the Artifact which was responsible for so many deaths in October. It is understandable that the public is uneasy, and he hopes that memory can relieve some of this uneasiness. In his stories of Ynoch, he speaks of Ynoch's most favored children, lost to the last age.

Despite being preservers of history and memory, the Corvigere are shy creatures of few words. There is valuable knowledge hidden in what they have to say, but it may take some effort to find it.

From now until the end of the month, NPC dialogue will be available in the comments of this news post. The Undertaker and an Assistant will be here, and if enough knowledge is gleaned from them, it may unlock some additional prizes for all participants! Note: responses from NPC's will likely be done only once-a-day.

Hints About Ynoch's Favored.
- Talk to The undertaker -
- Talk to Evvy -
  • They begin with the Space fysa.
  • They appear the most different from chimia than any other subspecies.
  • They were one of several types of chimia.
  • They ascended to divinity.
  • It's strange that they died out, as many had foresight.
  • Ynoch may have Protected them from the Senescence.
  • They are close to all deities, not just Ynoch
  • They were the largest and fiercest Chimia.
  • They Live Underground
  • They were called the Chimoraa.

Talksprites are not required, but if you'd like to make one you can use this template (or any format you wish, honestly)!

The Undertaker's voice is low, its soft rumbling sending vibrations through you. Its words are slow and halting, the words strangely spoken and stressed, but clear.

Ynoch was loved... But more than... she was adored, she loved others. And more than... she loved most, she adored the ones... who are now, gone from this world...

Arthur is moved by the Undertaker’s words and after building up some courage he takes a step forward.

The loss of Ynoch cannot be stressed, and many will mourn her death for many weeks to come. But at least she will live on in the people she touched and the lives she influenced.

He shifts the scrolls he’s carrying in his arms, a few tumbling to the ground. Arthur lets out a bit of a nervous laugh at his clumsiness. Despite the mess, he eventually manages to select a blank one, pulling a quill from his overflowing satchel before he speaks again.

Forgive me, Undertaker, my memory often fails me, but I believe I came here to record some information…

A moment of silence passes as Arthur takes a moment to desperately try to recall his purpose for being here.

Could... could you perhaps tell me the stories of some of Ynoch’s children? I wish to preserve these tales in Ynoch’s memory.

The Undertaker tilts his head at Arthur's approach, then bows his head as if accepting the words of greeting. There is a chirring sound, perhaps of amusement? Or maybe appreciation.

Eldest son... you do not... remember with your mind. You remember with... your bones.

Another clicking, chirring sound, which is definitely amusement this time.

You know of... the Chimia... They were the first... and now are the last. The Chimareu... the ones who loved fire... they left Ynoch. The Chimoraa... they were her beloved... and the Chimeko... they stole many things... It cost them dearly. Which story...?

Arthur smiles weakly at the large Corvigere before him, not fully understanding what the corvigere was trying to advise him to do.

If I could remember with my bones, Undertaker, I would.

He sets out an inkwell on a flat stone nearby, situating himself on the ground as he prepares to begin writing. He takes note of the three names, the metal tip of his quill scratching across the rough parchment page.

Tell me of the Chimoraa first, father. I think the people need to hear more of Ynoch's love. Thievery and punishment would probably not be the best place to start...

Arae listens to the Undertaker first with interest, then with just a hint of sorrow, their eyebrows knitting together as they think about his words.

I... couldn't agree more, I think. Ynoch has given us so much, always, um... I think it will become very important to keep that spirit alive. To uh, honor the lives, the people she felt for so deeply - past and present. She isn't truly gone, if we don't let her be...

The Immanu trails off, shoulders slouching a bit, suddenly worried they've said too much or overstepped a boundary.

I'm sorry... that's just my thinking, of course.

Are you a... philosopher, Rii'Heis? Do not apologize... for thinking. It is the power... of your kind.

The Undertaker settles, laying their head down near Arae so to better regard them. He seems relaxed.

There will always... be another. It is good... To encourage the spirit... new deities may yet... rise to fill the void. Ynoch did begin... as only an egg. Just like you. We must foster goodness... and remain vigilant.

Vala wanders closer to the great corvigere, after coming in quietly, tears fresh on her face as she clutches her staff closely. Her light dim and languid in the way it drifts across her fur.

Mother..... I miss her dearly, but I know she loved us all, and I love her too, so her memory will never die, so long as we remember.....

The little chimia trails off for a moment, before taking a deep and steadying breath. She moves forward to lay a gentle hand on the great paw of The Undertaker, her voice a little stronger.

Please, will you tell me a story? What's your favourite? I want to know more about my family, if I have one.

Evvy Talksprite

A human woman idles near the entrance to the Undertaker's cavern in Terralai who calls herself Evvy. She is known to be his companion, assisting him everywhere, and knows more about him and his stories than anyone else. She addresses you as you leave.

You look like someone who still has questions--?

Loch pauses on his way out, turning his head to watch the woman.

Who doesn't, with everything that's happened?

He hesitates, shifting stiffly from one foot to the other. A cloudy breath billows up towards the sky as he huffs.

D'you know what he means? About, uh, the ones she loved most.

There is quite the contrast between the two-- Loch in his jacket, and Evvy in her sheer clothes. She doesn't seem bothered by the cold at all, though.

Reminiscin' bout the Age of Preiyer, m'pretty sure. There were a lot more different kinds of us, 'n I think he was hoping some of them could come back. Yanno, with Ynoch making children, again. He thought there were going to be more after the four-eyes, so... he's mourning the loss of them, too, I guess.

Honestly, Loch's a little colder just looking at her. He might've offered her his jacket, if she seemed at all affected by the chill.

He looks over his shoulder, back towards the Undertaker and the crowd surrounding him. He picks out the chimia between the corvigere's ears.

You mean Vala? Is she one of them?

[Talk sprite coming soon!]

Otto gathers enough courage eventually to step forward and approach Evvy.

"Uh... Excuse me. I was wondering- Well, I don't mean to bother or pry, but is the Undertaker alright? He seems rather distraught by this all. I don't blame him, of course, we all are. But it seems like a great responsibility to try and offer comfort in times like these."

Otto's shyness seems to make Evvy more outgoing. Perhaps an attempt to put them at ease?

Aw yer e'scused. Your worries are appreciated- don't worry for us. The Undertaker's a professional mourner. He's seen the deaths of soo many others. He's seen the death of entire species, of the entire world!

Evvy seems to realize she's being a bit too cheery about something that's supposed to be solemn and serious, and clears her throat.

It's, uh, honestly a relief. Ynoch deserved rest-- she's back with Fys now. So you take care of yourselves now, yea?

Iphae touches down outside the cavern, his wings stirring up some of the freshly fallen snow. He takes note of the woman standing by the entrance as he casts a somewhat nervous glance inside. Iphae had his own quarrels with The Undertaker, quarrels that The Undertaker was most likely unaware of. He wasn't sure if he was quite ready to speak with the corvigere face to face.

Iphae decides to talk to Evvy while he gathers his confidence.

You live here?

A simple question just to get the conversation rolling. Iphae walks over to stand next to Evvy under the maw of the cavern, tired of the snow falling and melting on his feathers.
