Sacred Obia'Syela
« Topic Start: April 27, 2017, 04:51:28 AM »
First conceptualized in late 2015, this project has been in the works for a while, waiting for an ideal confluence of events before taking shape. There is a long-term, epic plan that I have in store, assuming the realm survives long enough or thrives well enough. But for those of you who see my posts, I challenge you to find the last time I ever described anything as epic.


Anywho, here's the wiki I hashed together that describes the events immediately leading up to the realm's creation. I hope you all enjoy what I have in store.

Great work, looking forward to see how this unfolds ;)

Was actually getting a bit bored with the daimons and their surprise attacks.
Can't wait thill their gone or somehow change into some other role.
They are constricting the players from doing anything else, because fighting them depletes resources and investing resources into anything else, a war with the other humans realms for example, is almost immposible and atleast self destructive.

The whole idea that the daimons can strike any time any where with great force makes any move on anything else far too risky.

The previous invasions where quicker, cleaning up the continent then leaving it almost complete destroyed.
However the build up from that was slow, it did create room for many new opportunities for lots of players.

Right now there is nothing to do but wait thill the daimons attack...
Hopefully this new will change that.

Well now, this is interesting! The last realm that was created in the North (BA in Ossmat) did not last long, although they claimed to be friendly towards us, secretly.

Anyway, this has potential. Might mess with Nothoi's plans since they claim Keffa though!

Why isn't Rania ruler yet?
EDIT: Oh yeah you lost everything when becoming Prophet of your new religion.

Yeah this is my first time foundign a religion and I did not realize all the titles would go away. I'm hoping that anyone can run and vote in the elections (because I forgot to check the settings) otherwise Obia'Syela will be pretty short lived!

Sooo atm, Yao Ling, accompanied by an army from Nivemus, is in Keffa. Rania, unconscious from her ordeal, lies naked in the gravel of the crater where she'd arrived. Yao Ling navigated her way through the hundreds of lessor Daimons protecting Rania to cover the younger noblewoman's modesty with her own cloak.


OOC...I tried preaching and the followers of the Portal took exception to that, wounding her, so now Rania really CANT respond to messages.


Gotta love how the game mechanics sometimes serve to reinforce the RP!

JeVondairs are pretty much like some sort of tectonic plaque. You KNOW they're there, you KNOW they're always moving and you always keep forgetting about them due to the glacial speed of their plans. That's when they pop a volcano in your garden and cover your lawn in ashes and lava.

Damned JeVondairs.

So! I've read the RPs (very nice writing btw, especially from story-making point - both JeVondair and whichever dev/mod plays the daimon lord), and I have this weird question, and I don't mean it as anything. Surely not anything other than curiosity.

My question is (and I wouldn't have to ask it if I had a noble on BT)... from OOC POV - is Rania really leading a daimon unit? Or is it a regular unit RP'd out as a daimon unit? Or I could really ask - are devs/mods involved in the new event/story/realm/whatever ? Because, you know, that could really reinforce the awesomeness.

There is a daimon militia unit loyal to the realm, in the capital region. Its effectively just like any other militia unit, so not controlled by any players. GM involvement is through the daimon lord.

Nothoi, army of Nothoi. Bunch of Daishi zealots, most of them.  ;)

From Keffa...

Can I get some help/advice please?

That's in reaction to the previous realm's distance from capital. Peasants take a few days to update their opinions after taking a region.

Now then, I don't suppose either of you dabble in theology? The Heralds of Obeah can use some work and any ideas or experience is welcome!


Here are some ideas I have for
Realm titles:
Ruler = Archon
General = Ecclesiarch
Judge = Inquisitor
Banker = Chancellor


(I may or may not be playing Dawn of War atm so...)


Religion Titles
Founder = First Herald
High Priest = Cardinal
Priest = Chaplain
Noble (Full Rank) = Herald
Noble Follower (non-full member_ = Scholar
Follower (adventurer rank)= Adept
