I think I've managed to get 2 of my characters to Vita's list. Zakilevo and Kurlock. Wanted to get a third one in at some point XD

Allison was a hoot to play with.

I miss her.

Like a hole in the head.

One can argue that if a year old interested player doesn't know anything about something happening before his time then perhaps that something wasn't that impactful after all. I never heard of this Alison. I've heard plenty about Jonsu and Mathurin.

D'awww. *blushes*

Man, reading this was a blast from the past. Loved the parts about Fontan and LoF. I'm just coming back, but I used to play Tal conDoin in Fontan. A minor player, and my only character to have a decent impact I think.

Fun times though, from LoF through the Sirion War and all. All the big names were hit though, I think. From Gregor to Basileus, Hamilton and all. There was one though...Zhakev? I can't remember, but I feel like it was an Eastern European name. He was a player in Fontan, not sure if he would qualify for this list.

Welcome back Tal! Fontan is sadly long gone but there's plenty of PvP action on EC, or if you fancy some PvE masochism both Beluaterra and Dwilight are desperate for new nobles.

Haha I appreciate the welcome!

I'm definitely back on EC, and I've made a foray into Beluaterra ( Where has my beloved Atamara gone?  :'( ).

I'm debating where to go in Dwilight. I prefer PvP to PvE, but it looks like I'm going to have to take what I can get.

There's basically no PvP on Dwi and BT.

On Dwi the Lurias have plans but we need additional numbers and on BT I'm always looking for new blood to assist in Ar Agyr as we've some prime real estate to recover from the hordes.

I love this thread. How's that yearly poll coming? How would it be set up?

My general policy has been to not add living characters to the list. However, I definitely think she'll qualify once deceased, so I can add her to the 'waiting list' of living but famous characters. Garas and Glaumring too.

There have been some exceptions, mostly to those who have been paused for several months, or whose characters come from the Near Origins (~2003) of BM. These are quite the rare exception compared to the other names on the lists. I'll consider Glaumring for an exception, due to joining Dwilight so early and still being around. Possibly Karibash too.

Also, I was planning to make it an annual community event (poll each noble on each island) at some point, but I don't know how likely that'll be, with my diminishing engagement level.

Colonies are not an afterthought, though there are decidedly less names there.

Ultimately, as I said above, I'd like to make it an annual event (say, over Christmas/NYW week, when things are more relaxed) where each island's nobles vote on the most worthy noble who deceased/deleted/retired over the past year.


Glaumring is now 110years old as a hero.... I don't think he'll ever get on a deceased list, ive been trying for decades!

I've recently learned that the oldest dead hero in BattleMaster was 102 years old (second oldest 97, and youngest 16, with 3 more at 17). So, once Glaumring or any other ancient hero older than 102, at least they'll set a new record for oldest dead hero. ;)

Today is Thank Wimpie for Being an Awesome Dev Day. Give Wimpie some gratitude for his constant bugfixing, pestering of admins to get things done, and general Wimpieness.

Maybe KK at 135yo? https://battlemaster.org/stable/CharacterDetails.php?ID=6647&InWorld=8

Fissoa could use a war...

Ha! Luria better get to it, because things are too easy right now, and getting the urge to just sprawl over in every direction until we trigger a new invasion for y'all.
