Gotland
« Topic Start: August 24, 2017, 05:54:32 PM »
I thought of you folks, when I read this:
Quote
BOZEMAN, Mont. -

Mountain goats led to a large-scale rescue effort in Gallatin County, Montana on Sunday.

The Gallatin County Sheriff's office said a family of three from Spokane was hiking on the Bridger Ridge Trail Sunday morning when they stopped to photograph some mountain goats. The goats knocked some rocks loose and sent a bowling ball sized rock rolling into a woman's leg. Sheriffs say the rock caused an "injury and severe laceration." The family called 9-1-1 for help.

Since it was such steep terrain, the woman was flown off the trail, then transported by ambulance to Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital. The rest of the party was taken out by ATV.

Sheriff Brian Gootkin said the group was well prepared for the elements with food, water and head lamps. He said, "Mostly, we respond to good people doing good things who have a bad day. I don't know how you prepare for goat assassins, but I'm glad we could help these folks out."

This is exactly whats going to happen to Jomorosh very soon.
Thinking he's on a relaxed hike to victory, oblivious of the doom that awaits him...

I am shamelessly turning this into a shameless Gotland recruitment thread. ;D
As Gotland is growing it needs knights and lords to govern and take tax gold.
So if you have a character available in Beluaterra that can stand a bit of absurdity and general bluntness, come to Gotland!
Even a simple visit to Gotland will be an interesting experience for every noble on the continent.
But most of all the many opportunities for a good career is why Gotland is such a wonderful destination, Lordships and even positions of leadership will lay waiting.

Some of the unique/extreme things that make Gotland a special place to play in:
  • The right to war, every noblemen has the right to demand war if the realm is at peace, the ruler has a week's time to declare war if a referendum for war by a simple majority the nobility wins. Gotland will keep looking for war even after the invasion with other human realms, preferably competitive, set wars not total wars as to keep up a healthy environment for dynamic wars in the future.
  • Duchies may arrange their appointments as they wish, the duchy of Gethsemene and Fianik to a lesser point allow region lordship to be challenged by a duel till surrender. They also deal with allowing temples or guild houses of certain religions or guilds to be build.
  • Government members have to keep the nobility updated on what they are doing as much as possible by law, the code of the Herd dictates these (constitutional) laws. The Code of the Herd is written for all nobles and all nobles may change or add any part of it(with a 3/4 majority in a referendum).
  • The Gotland long beards are a small group consisting of three of the most senior members of the realm(most days in realm) with special veto powers over the rulers diplomatic decisions. A 2/3 minimal consensus among the three is required.  They can also force new elections for ruler.
  • Goats are cool.  8) Gotland worships a goat god and consider goats holy animals, referring to almost everything as having something to do with Goats.
    (for example: Goat quests for pausing or going inactive, butting of heads for dueling, 'the Herd' for the community or parts of it or the lengths of beards referring to the age and experience of a certain character).
  • We just started our official religion with a bang: two portal events and some epic role plays that can be read here: https://forum.battlemaster.org/index.php/topic,7967.0.htm. The events are still ongoing and unresolved, so you aren't to late yet to jump in at this crucial decisive moment of history and make a change.

Check out Gotland's wiki page for more information: http://wiki.battlemaster.org/wiki/Gotland

If you already play/played in Gotland then consider sharing a bit of experience in this thread, what you liked or disliked or found unique or just a good anecdote.

Need to make sure that guy you killed was really dead? Look no further, for Gotland has all your double-tapping needs fulfilled!

we are not even giving the daimons a chance for a burial.
Even though in Ossmat they roleplayed destroying Jomorosh body, it did manage to return to it's (former) capital.
Once it did it sat there for a while untill the local guards captured it.
We are still not sure what we just executed and how... :P

Pretty epic moments latley on beluaterra and Gotland.
Netherworlds last daimon Lord and King daimon Jomorosh killed in Ossmat, Haji the new capital of Dominorum taken over and Fianik the capital of Netherworld taken, all simultaneously or shortly after each other.
Then Angmar suddenly declares to defend Spearhold in a Federation causing lots of discussions on the faith of this last daimon worshiping realm.

Invasion Collapse   (33 minutes ago)
message to everyone on Beluaterra
Taking no risks with the possibility Jomorosh might use latent magic and the energy of the three portal stone beacons to strike from beyond the grave, Gotland executed the last daimonlord's shriveled, desiccated remains. It remained an arcane mystery how the daimonlord's corpse survived Ar Agyr's annihilative actions, but reappear they had in Fianik.

With the remains fully disposed, the three beacons of portal stone lights faded and the Netherworld regional holdings collapsed into independent self-ownership.

Allthough it's nice Gotland is mentioned here explicitly it is a bit of a lame end to the invasion.
There was no gm response to in game involvement, sacrifices, rituals and plenty of rps surrounding these portals.

I also wonder what Vita was planning before Jomorosh would be killed, i am sure he wasnt done yet...

It's an end, that's all I will remember from this event.

Now we can finally start ripping each other apart  ;)

Haha, yes i think Vita wasnt paying attention here.

Noble Rossyth from Thalmarkin killed Jomorosh.

Also only two of the portals where placed by Gotland, I do not know who put the third.

never say never :P
Honestly, no realm has enough nobles to start a real colony.
The colony they are trying to form right on Gotlands border with fiercely claimed lands has no chance of peaceful relation with Gotland.
They'd have to defend that colony.
Nothoi is going for a continent wide war i presume.
