[Syliras DS Office - Dusk] XP and Threads

Moderator's Note


Hello everyone!

Please make a post here letting me know either what thread you would like a moderator's help with, or what thread you need XP awarded to, and include a link to that post. If you just have a question or need clarification, feel free to post here or PM me. Once I have completed these, I will delete your post and mark it on this list as COMPLETED.

When I first see your post here, I will add it to the list below. If you do not see your post on the list, that means it may have been delegated to one of the AS's. Please keep in mind that we are sort of overwhelmed in Syliras, and that it may take a few weeks to get your threads graded. We do our best to keep up with them, but there's only so many hours in the day. :)

A note on how I award XP :
I've been asked "how long should posts/threads be in order to earn good XP?" How much XP your character earns depends on the length of each post, and how much you use each skill within the thread as a whole. My general rule is that if you're a novice, for every post with at least a few sentences (preferably a paragraph) of descriptive use of a skill, you get 1 XP for it. Up to 5, which is the max per skill. So if you make five posts with really good description of your character using his/her longsword, you'll get five points in Longsword. You earn progressively less points for the same actions as your skill level advances. Which makes sense logically because if you've got 65 points, you're not gonna really learn anything from spending an hour doing overhand whacks at a dummy like you would if you had 5 points. Now, you can also earn 5 points in one post, but it'd have to be reeeeeeeally long (like, uncomfortably long) and that thought kind of irks me. Just as a personal ST preference, I prefer if training threads are broken up a little, which gives me the ability to grade a post or two and go deal with real life, and come back to it without having to search through seventeen paragraphs to find where I left off. :D To summarize, I am looking for your character to actually practice a skill, not just mention it (To earn Cooking XP: "She chopped her vegetables while the water came to a boil, added a handful of spices and a tiny sliver of butter, and once the pot began sending up plumes of steam she added the sliced carrots and potatoes and slammed the pot lid onto it" instead of "She cooked some soup"). Also, this applies only to XP - Lores and swag are arbitrarily given based on the feel of the thread and your writing!


Welcome to Syliras, and let's make some drama!

If you posted a thread here for grading and it's disappeared without a grade being assigned, it's been moved to one of the AS's offices for grading. Please check there (usually Paragon at the moment) and be patient! You will be graded, I promise.

PLEASE NOTE: Finals are over, but summer is eating my soul. As such, as of the end of June I will not be accepting any new quests/modded threads until I finish some of the ones I've already started/agreed to. My apologies for this, but I don't want to be unfair to those who have been waiting for replies!

Hi !
Greetings Miss Dusk!

Kouri, one of the players/members mentioned that Archon retired already.
If ever you got time to please check on this link and mod for me, I'll be glad.

Thank you,

Note: I can wait till other pending-active modded threads were finished...
Note: The player behind Alisha was still adjusting to Mizahar life, please bear with her.

(Assist her if it needs...)
PS: I dislike long threads. 2 to 3 pages, more than that? too risky...
When it comes to writing, 300-800 words per post (less than 1,000). More or less three replies per week...

Hi Alisha,

Thanks for the polite request but I'm sorry to say Dusk is retired too (you can tell from the grey name). Syliras' local DS is Accolade, so give him a shout instead :)
