Once I get the calendar up, there's going to be some surfing opportunities too.

A Profusion of Rum and Coconuts - Syka's OOC

Postby Gossamer on September 11th, 2016, 12:23 am



Question for the masses. I was thinking originally that the Founders of Syka would keep Myrian and Dhani out of the city in order to keep the 'war' out of the settlement. Do you guys think this should hold firm for the Codex or should we allow these two types of PCs in the city since they really have no where else to play?

I'd love to hear your thoughts.

A Profusion of Rum and Coconuts - Syka's OOC

I think that would have to be the case, given the bone-deep and from-the-cradle-learned hatred Myrians in particular have of the Dhani. And I can't imagine the Dhani are raised with much toleration of the Myrians, either, since they've been stuck in a cave for hundreds of years because if they ever left it, the Myrians would kill them on sight.

That said, if the settlement is tolerated by Myri and she ORDERED that her Children not pursue their race's vendetta within the confines of the settlement, they would likely obey her. She's the living mother of their race, after all: they'd skin themselves alive if she asked. Ditto the Dhani, mainly because they know their Queen would ACTUALLY skin them alive if they defied her.

A Profusion of Rum and Coconuts - Syka's OOC

Postby Emergence on September 11th, 2016, 1:17 am

I'm working against myself here, but oh well.

I do not think Myri would ever say 'hey dont kill the Dhani in this specific place'. She is all about conquering and that would go against a lot of what she stands for. I haven't read much on Dhani lore, so i cant say anything on that. Also I do not think Myri would recognize the settlement of Syka very much. In fact I think she would find offense to it existing and instead would want to conquer it herself. Therefore any deals helping them out wouldn't make sense, in my opinion.

Also if the founders of Syka have enough knowledge of Myri, the Dhani and the Myrians, no I don't think anyone would want that in their city. There would only be two solutions to that problem. Either keep it as it is now, expel both races from the settlement, or only allow one in and expel the other (I vote allow Myrians, who likes snakes anyway, they eat sheep and stuff)

Sorry, not a part of Syka at all but wanted to throw my 2 cents in

A Profusion of Rum and Coconuts - Syka's OOC

Postby Konrad Venger on September 11th, 2016, 1:25 am

Myri has said EXACTLY THAT before: namely, in the construction of the Zinrah Blockade, which basically says "I've made a deal with Caiyha, and you can't kill ANY Dhani in this cave system, or even go inside it... but any you find in the jungle are fair game". If sheer, unbridled conquest was her sole goal, she and the Myrians would have spilled out into the wider world centuries ago... and probably been wiped out when the world unified against them (the alternative being annihilation by the Myrians). She's a much more subtle thinker than that (probably comes from once being human).

The very fact that Syka EXISTS means that Myri MUST have allowed it. Nothing happens in Falyndar without her or her Children learning about it (above ground, anyway). An entire foreign settlement simply would not have been ignored or passed unseen, and if it was discovered, the Taloba Army would have been dispatched to raze it and massacre everyone inside.

My point being, if Myri saw some advantage to allowing it to remain, she would. What that advantage is, and how the founding of Syka was negotiated, I couldn't speculate on, but I do know that you can't keep a "secret city" in Falyndar. She would simply find out.

Hmm... as to your second point, I agree. Myrians are ferocious warriors, but they're quite an orderly people, very prone to obeying the law. They also don't transform into Escalade-sized snake monsters that can be very tough to take down, and aren't naturally backstabbing like Dhani.

You are assuming an awful lot, Konrad. Myri isn't all-knowing all-seeing. Her sphere is simply war, battle, and victory. :)

I say we only allow one race, as this solves the conflict problem.
Like Emergence, I think the Myrians are fit for this category.

That's not to say that Dhani can't roleplay around here.
Sure, they won't get into the city, and it might be a dangerous place for them.
But would they not be able to roam around the fringes?

A Profusion of Rum and Coconuts - Syka's OOC

Postby Konrad Venger on September 11th, 2016, 1:31 am

As a goddess, no, she is not... but as a ruler and a queen, she regards Falyndar as her exclusive domain. Myrians are scattered throughout the jungle, not just around Taloba, and they're all raised to venerate her, her wishes and her teachings. So I find it really, really hard to swallow that an entire city/town could be constructed without her finding out about it somehow. And when she does, she'll destroy it.

Still, if you do go by YOUR logic, Emergence, it does sort of solve the problem: Myrians would not be allowed into Syka because they WOULD tell others about it, and word would get back to Myri, and then, well, we know what happens next. So, logically, there would have to be no Myrians to ensure the narrative of Myri and her Children being ignorant of the place.

Yeah, Izu, I had the same thought about outskirts or beyond the city walls. If the wording of the edict is "within the city/settlement", that could hold true... but outside, in the jungle/beach/plains AROUND Syka, maybe they could roleplay there?
