The new realms will be created quite shortly. Feel free to start emigrating now, if you wish.

Nice. That's kind of exciting. ;)

I realize the changes will happen on December 21st.

But when does the emmigration process change to the new mode?
And when are the new realms available? It would kind of make sense to have them available before the deadline.

BM General Discussion / Come Join Outer Tilog

On the slow paced island called the "colonies", there is a unique realm full of treachery, darkness, corruption and ,... democracy. It's a place dedicated to creatures and degenerates who wouldn't be tolerated anywhere else. Their water is poisoned. their mead is black, their minds are demented, but still the nobles share a unique kind of humor.

A huge black abyss parts this ancient place, giving shelter to  thousands of demons and imps - and the cult  worshiping them brings terror to the peasants. Darkness rules the hearts and minds of the landed nobility and they wallow in their madness.This place is called Outer Tilog and it's waiting for you.

I kind of wished that the game mechanics were more easy to understand. To be honest I liked the testing a lot and I still like the general idea of Spellmaster, but I quit because it was just too complicated - especially the rituals.

Not this again.

Secede (v t, v it): To take the Duchy one is Duke of (containing at least one city) and form of it a new realm. Cannot be done with the last city in a realm. (Used to be impossible with a capital.)

Change Allegiance (v it): To take the region one is Lord of or the Duchy one is Duke of and join it to another realm. Cannot be done with the last city in a realm. (Has always been possible with a capital.)

Please make sure to keep them straight.

However, in this case, yes, the restriction on secession with the capital of the realm is gone. I'm...not sure if that was deliberate or not, but at least now the two options are in balance with what their restrictions are.

Thank you for clarifying this. So both options are actually a possibility for O.T. city. Good to know ...

I got the information that it is possible for a capital to secede and that it happened on Atamara already.

Letter from Garm Tanngrisnir Crownguard   (6 days, 17 hours ago)
Message sent to everyone in message group "Schemers and Dreamers" (13 recipients)
Can a capital secede now?  They didn't used to be able to but I received a letter from my nephew on Atamara that the capital of his old realm seceded to the enemy.

It does feel a bit like there is a build up to something as you say.

Well, it all started a few days ago, when a few high ranking and longstanding nobles voiced their concerns and mentioned that Duke Valak might try to secede soon.  Also, some of the  autochthonous degenerates (Delirus included) felt that a bunch of "normal"  human beings were taking over the Duchy of Outer Tilog without talking very much and without honouring the (crazy) traditions of the realm.  Being paranoid and insane in nature, quite a lot of nobles plotted against the mighty duke, trying to weaken his position  by stabbing him and banning his lords. That is the true reason why Delirus issued both bans. Of course, as far as he is concerned, the true reason could always be the black mead he constantly is consuming. In any way, Duke Valak proves to to be quite resistant so far. :) So the plot goes on ...

In order to state the obvious, I'm the player of Delirus Ironsun.  8)

No, I'm not a member of any clan. While I do know some BM players in real life, NONE of them has a character in Outer Tilog.Yes there is some plotting and counter-plotting going on, but, at least as far as I'm concerned, it is purely IC.  I  don't know what else to say about this, but I'm certainly ready to answer any questions.

Yeah, it would definitely have to be the same duchy each time, with the duke auto-changing to be the current ruler.

Sounds like a good solution.

Unfortunately this doesn't look like a bug, so I'm posting it here.

Lord Removed   (6 hours, 45 minutes ago)
message to all nobles of Corsanctum
Scribes find out that due to confusion about the political (or feudal) hierarchy, Conan Ironsun, Regent of Corsanctum, Margrave of Well of Mimer is forced to relinquish his lordship. He, as Regent, cannot hold allegiance to a Duchess.

Estate Vacated   (6 hours, 45 minutes ago)
message to the knights of Well of Mimer
Scribes find out that due to confusion about the political (or feudal) hierarchy, Conan Ironsun, Regent of Corsanctum, Margrave of Well of Mimer is forced to relinquish his estate. He, as Regent, cannot hold allegiance to a Margrave. These 50 % of the region are now without a knight.

What exactly is this? Can I be appointed as Lord again?

That certainly would be a good thing.

Well, during the first days the new editor drove me crazy and I still have my share of problems with it.

Whenever I'm including scribe notes, I have to use the plain html option (or get crazy), which means my messages are more work to write. For an example, with the old system I didn't have to to use "br" or "p" for getting into the next line.

When I don't have to include scribe notes, the new editor is working ok and it's quite comfortable to create a nice layout for your letter.

Frankly, I'm in love with BM since several years, and this is the first time I'm thinking twice about  recommending the game. BM is based on letters and text. Now, if sending letters gets complicated and you have the choice of using html OR don't sending scribe notes at all ... well let's just say it's  very uncomfortable, especially for new players.  >:(

So SM3 launch isn't going to happen anytime soon, as it seems. Will it happen at all? Sure hope so. :-)

Roleplaying / Re: Evalynn and Aeolus - A Love Story
« on: October 12, 2011, 09:19:47 PM »
A night in Al Arab
Finally Evalynn and Aeolus meet again, in the beautiful city of Al Arab.

After finishing up her duties for the day, Evalynn's scribe brought her a letter from the fiduciary asking her to travel to Itor Boss to do some trading. She made her way to Lord Ironsun's estate so she could report in and let him know about the assignment. Plus she really wanted to see him before she had to leave. She knocked softly on the door.

Aeolus was justabout to leave his estate to take a walk in the moonlight, when he noticed that someone was at the door.

"Ah, Lady Evalynn! What a pleasant suprise to see you. Are you alright?"

Startled by the deep voice from behind her Evalynn jumped. She laughed at herself as she realized it was Aeolus.
"Good evening Aeolus," she said as she tried not to blush. "Oh," she smiled as she remembered he had asked her a question, "I am doing well. I just stopped by to talk with you about how things are going. And I wanted to let you know the fudiciary has asked me to travel to Itor Boss again. Was there anything you needed me to do before I head out?"
She paused for a moment. Her stomach felt like it was full of butterflies she couldn't explain.

She regained her composure and continued. "My lord I have been contemplating an idea I wanted to run past you also. I wondered if you would consider hosting a masquerade ball." She tried not to rush as she tried to explain. "With the country facing difficult times I feel that this could be a great opportunity to unite and strengthen old and new ties. To rebuild friendships and brotherhood as well as be fun for all." She looked up into his eyes and smiled, trying to see if they would give her a clue to what he might be thinking.

The Duke listened to Evalynn's soft voice and had a hard time to stay focused.

"A masquerade ball? What a nice idea. Didn't have one of these in years. It could get a bit difficult to get a lot of nobles together in times of war, though. If you would like to organize such an event in Al Arab, you have my full blessing and help. You even could use the great hall at my lordly estate, if you like.  But - by Tersea - Where are my manners?" The duke bowed slightly, smiled at Evallynn and softly took her hand, performing a traditional "kiss on the hand".

"It is such a pleasure to see you, my Lady. I wish I could come with you to Itor Boss, just in order to spend more time with you. " He sighed. His heart really wanted to talk about something else with Evalynn, but unfortunately there was more business to discuss.

"There is a small matter you could help me with. We need some more focus on authority in Al Arab. Could perhaps tell your men to enlarge your estate? If you need any gold for that, just say the word." But even while he was talking about business, Aeolus just couldn't stop to smile. It was obvious that he indeed was very happy to see Evalynn.

Evalynn loved listening to Aeolus as he spoke. She was mesmerized by his voice and she was excited to hear the news of the realm.
She blushed deeply when he took her hand.
As he spoke about the desire to travel with her, her eyes lit up and she seemed to beam from happiness. Just knowing that he enjoyed her company as much as she enjoyed his made her smile.
"I will be glad to get things set up to enlarge the estate." she replied to his request.
Then as they discussed the possibility of hosting a masquerade ball her eyes danced with excitement. "I understand that we can't leave Ibladesh defenseless and that not everyone will be able to attend. But I think even just extending the invitation to the realm could be a benefit for all. Plus the good it will do for Al Arab as this land is graced with the company of good friends and countrymen." She realized that they had started walking and she found herself falling into step next to Aeolus. She looked up at the beautiful night sky then continued.
"Thank you for giving your blessing on this. Your support and approval means so much to me. You seem to have such confidence and faith in me that sometimes I feel like I could spread wings and fly when I am with you." she giggled as she realized how absurd that must sound.

Walking next to Evalynn, Aeolus looked at the sky. It was a clear and beautiful night and the stars above the city seemed to sparkle - just in order to make the moment even more beautiful for the two of them.

"I believe that my confidence in you is well placed, my dear lady. You still are a young noble, but yet you have done so much already for Al Arab ... and for me."

Speaking those words, Aeolus smiled softly and took Evalynn's hand while they where walking down one of the nicely arranged parkways of the city. Then he couldn't help but giggle himself.

"By the way, I think you are mistaken, my dear lady. You are the one that makes me fly - or at least I'm feeling that way right now"

As Aeolus said those words Evalynn smiled. Time could stand still. For the world was perfect,walking hand in hand with the man who held the key to her heart.

And that way time seemed to stop indeed, as Evalynn and Aeolus were walking hand in hand, silently enjoying each others company. After some minutes - or had it been hours - Aeolus seemingly tried to say something. However, he didn't manage at first. Breathing heavily he finally made a second attempt:

"My dear and noble Evalynn, I would like to invite you to my estate again, when you return from your mission in Itor Boss. There are a few things I would like to tell you. Until then, please accept this humble gift"

The Duke reached under his mail shirt and revealed a golden neclace with pendant fvrom his neck. The precious peandant was beautifully ornamented with different kinds of metal, featuring the letters DoA, skilfully arranged around a potrait of Aeolus - with crown and scepter.

"This is the last remaining insignia of the holy Diocese of Aix, theocracy of Church of Ibladesh. The realm I founded, ruled and lost. I have no kingdom to give any more, but this peace of memory shall be yours now."

Taken by surprise Evalynn studied Aeolus. Full of love and adoration for the man standing in front of her. A sudden realization of what he said as she traced the letters DoA on the necklace he placed gently around her neck.

"He must of carried a heavy burden founding and ruling," she thought silently as she looked closer at the magnificent picture of him.

Her face probably seemed puzzled as she was lost in thought. Suddenly a small understanding of the man she loved registered on her face. She looked up into Aeolus eyes as a deeper look of love and care settled over her countenance. As she struggled to find words a melody from a famous waltz entered her mind. Softly she began to sing,

"We are the lucky ones
We shine like a thousand suns
When all of the colour runs together

I'll keep you company
In one glorious harmony
Waltzing with destiny forever

Dance me into the night
Underneath the moon shining so bright
Turning me into the light

Time dances whirling past
I gaze through the looking glass
And feel just beyond my grasp is heaven

Sacred geometry
Where movement is poetry
Visions of you and me forever

Dance me into the night
Underneath the moon shining so bright
Turning me into the light

Dance me into the night
Underneath the moon shining so bright
Let the dark waltz begin
Oh let me wheel - let me spin
Let it take me again
Turning me into the light."

As the last words of the song left her soft lips she reached out to Aeolus and curled into his arms in a loving embrace.

Aeolus softly and carefully took Evalynn in his arms. He had fought many battles, ruled two different realms, and commanded armies, regions and cities. But during all this time, he never felt this blessed - this happy. There was so much he wanted to tell her, explain to her, before making the next step. But, frankly, timing never had been his his strong point. So he decided to give in to the moment for once. There was time for explaining and talking later. And so, the Duke felt completly humbled and richly blessed at the same time, as he closed his eyes and gently kissed the one who was so dear, so special to him.

When he finally opened his eyes again, the sun already was rising. Still at a loss for words, Aeolus just looked into Evalynn's eyes until he finally ws able to speak.

"That ... ähm ... that was some fine poetry, my dear lady. Befitting a beautiful and noble person, just as yourself. There are, however, some things about my past I should tell you, now -" Aeolus took a deep breath and continued. "Now, that we got closer to each other."

Evalynn was curious what he wanted to tell her as she gazed lovingly into his eyes. She could still feel the soft kiss he had bestowed upon her. Her stomach was full of butterflies again as her heart seemed to be in a flutter. Yet she had no expectations as she stood before Aeolus.

She didn't want this night to end as they watched the sun peek over the mountains, threatening to drown the twinkling stars as it began to wash the sky with an array of color. The sun was a reminder of the duties and tasks that loomed before them. She smiled as hand in hand they walked back towards their homes.

As they were walking home peacefully, Aeolus finally managed to speak.

My dear lady ... the thing I wanted to tell you is that I was married. In the city of Aix, back when I was ruler, I married Lady Tsukiko D'Anglos and Pontiff Sinted himself conducted the ceremony. We were in love, but after some time I fell into a deep, mystical meditation that lasted for several weeks. Tersea must hve been with me, because I survived all this time without eating or drinking. However, when I woke up, my city was rogue, the realm I founded was no more and my wife was gone. I spent months searching for her, but it was in vane. Finally I asked Sinted, the blessed to legaly end our marriage in front of the church and our gods. It ws no easy step, but Lady Tsukiko had vanished and i had to continue my life somehow"

Aeolus looked somewhat sad, but also relieved, as he continued.

"I don't know how much of that you already knew, but I felt like telling you myself. You know that I do care for you a great deal and I thought you have the right to know."

The noble was a bit shaken from going through this memory all over again, but one look at the face of Evalynn, eased all of his pain and he smiled at her.

Listening with an open mind and a loving heart, Evalynn smiled in return. She didn't know what to say when he finished. The realization of all that he was explaining and all that he been through weighed heavily on her heart. Words seemed hollow as she searched for what she wanted to say.

She had no idea about the dukes marriage. A portrait hanging in the dinning hall came to her mind as she remembered her first evening with Aeolus. A graceful, elegant beautiful lady who held such a special place in Aeolus life and in his heart. She was touched that the man standing before her had spent so much time waiting and searching for his wife and she was sad that such a beautiful marriage had ended in such a way.

She thought about the Diocese of Aix, she had heard a little about it in her studies and time in the church of Ibladesh. She remembered hearing something about how the region of Aix had sworn vassalage to the Church of Ibladesh but that was about all she knew about it.

Looking again into Aeolus eyes she realized how hard this must have been to share with her. And how much he truly cared for her.

"Thank you for sharing this with me." she said, her voice soft and comforting.

"I want you to know how much I care for you Aeolus. And I don't know if I will ever fully understand the things you have gone through." She paused as she continued to find the right words to reflect what was in her heart.

"I admire your love and marriage to Lady Tsukiko D'Anglos. And I think you would of been a great ruler if the fates had allowed." she smiled at Aeolus and then frowned as she saw Captain Heinrich approaching.
The Captain offered a respectful greeting to Lord Ironsun and then to Lady Evalynn as he reached them. Then he turned to Evalynn.

"Ive come to report that the men are ready and everything is in order to travel to Itor Boss on your command."

Evalynn sighed. "Thank you captain."

She turned to Aeolus as a dull ache settled in her heart.

Aeolus truely was touched.

"Thank you for your understanding, my dear Lady Evalynn. This really means a lot to me. May Tersea protect and guide you during your mission."

Then he bowed deeply and lovingly smiled at the lady of his heart.

"This has been a truely wonderful night and I hope we will be able to see each other soon after your mission"

After that the duke softly kissed Evalynns hand and nodded towards Captain Heinrich.

"Your mistress is a very special lady indeed, Capatain. Take good care of her."

"Thank you Aeolus, I really enjoyed our time together." She curtsied and kissed his cheek. "Farewell for now."

The captain acknowledged what the duke said with a nod and then saluted respectfully before he and Evalynn departed.

Before they had gone far Evalynn turned around to smile one last time at the man she loved with all her heart.

Well, that's all for now. Perhaps there's more to come :-)
