Syka Submissions - Locations, Ideas, Etc

Postby Quzon on September 4th, 2018, 7:23 pm

Submitting what would be Quzon's home when he gets his plot of land. He'll not be taking a loan.


Quzon's Quarters

Quzon's five acres of land can be located due north passed the rocky shores of Sharktooth point. It is there that the Reimancer used his arcane to carve his home into the side of a stone cliff further inland away from the shore. He's claimed the acre of land in front of the cliff with the rest stretching back to claim as much as the raised landmass as possible.

He's set up his tent in front of the cliff, but any visitor would spot the three stone steps leading up to a wooden door at the base of the cliff. Upon entering Quzon's home a visitor would stand in a small area that acts as a foyer. The wall of which being incredibly thick to be used for structural support.

A right turn at the entrance would lead someone into the Myrian's current bedroom. With the focused efforts of of Reimancy, the area features flat stone tiled floors covered which he uses comfortable pillows as chairs to sit on. It also has a bed where the Myrian sleeps. The only artistic decoration of note is grating made of stone at the head of his bed. Its the same earth grating that he uses for his windows.

The area to the left of the entrance on the opposite side of the grating acts as Quzon's Common room where he keeps his body building equipment. It also is where his hearth can be found near the far back wall, which doubles the area into being his kitchen space.

If the Myrian needs any more space, he plans on adding a stairway into a hallway leading from the left area that goes deeper into the ground, then possibly move his bedroom from the front to the back.

He'll eventually make the following various other sections as needed:

Taren's villa

Postby Taren Coballon on September 9th, 2018, 5:22 am

Image


Taren’s parcel of land consisted of maybe an acre in length of pristine white sand beach and then stretched back into the deep, dark, and dense jungle. The first acre or so of land rose several feet above sea level before it levels off however the back two to three acres were uneven with the small cliffs. A couple of game trails crisscrossed along the back of the property, birds nested in many of the trees, and the land housed a large variety of fruit, nuts, and vegetables common to the entire area. The entire area untouched by people and the wildlife showed no fear of him at all.

A small stream, filled with a variety of fish, lined with rocks that meandered thru the land that eventually flowed over a small waterfall and into a pool just before it ran out onto the beach and into the ocean. The cliffside was a short climb of twenty five to thirty feet in most areas and housed several small overhangs and even a small cave or two that might be able to hold a few people in emergencies.

For the time being, Taren had pitched his hammock under the shade of some palm trees with a good view of the sea and had quickly built a lean-to on the edge of the beach to protect his belongings to allow him time to clear the area of enough foliage off the land. Eventually he plans to build a lofted room or two in the trees near the beach and have a common area under the area.

Just north of the Saw Mill is where Roulette would love to settle down, as long as it's not already taken. This way she could begin to learn the trade of carpentry while having the benefit of being relatively close by to the workplace. A small trail will lead from the Saw Mill and right up toward the small bungalow-style home as it sits on stilts just in case of high tide. A single ladder will lead up into the only entrance of her abode. The home features one bedroom and a sitting area that shares the kitchen. The windows are numerous and allow for as much light to come in as possible. The exterior features a small outhouse attached to the left flank of the house with a proper door for privacy. At the top of the roof is a built-in rain collecting system that provides the abode with all of its fresh water. Otherwise, there is a nearby small, freshwater creek within the jungle that is naturally filtered via the plant life.

Until her home is built, she will live in a tent (from the starting package).

Syka Submissions - Locations, Ideas, Etc

Postby Kamilla on April 8th, 2019, 6:55 pm

I’m not sure where this would fit in the Codex(or if it would even go there)but I thought it could be an interesting little addition to Syka’s culture. I am currently trying to think of sayings or traditions too.



Jungle Fever

A traditional Syka game invented by none other than Stu. Found at the bar and available to any that want it, is a bottle containing a rolled up page with the rules written on one side and the dares on the other, as well as a 20 sided dice. The only rule to those who wish to borrow the bottle and its contents is that they return it to the Tidepool Bar when done.

Rules :
Rules:
-Players take turns rolling a dice, adding up their personal rolls.
-Each number corresponds to a specific dare and can only be rolled once, in the case of a double, the player ignores the roll and rolls again until they get an unrolled number.
-If a player refuses or fails a dare, they roll again, adding both rolls to their total. Repeat until player successfully completes a dare.
-The game ends once all 20 numbers have been rolled or the players decide to end it.
-The winner(the Jungle King) is whoever has the lowest total when the game ends.
-The Jungle King then gets to choose one dare for all the losing players to do.
-In the case of a tie for King, the players take turns rolling dares, both doing them until one fails.


Dares :
Dares:
1-Strip and dive into the ocean.
2-Climb a tree and pick a coconut
3-Get buried in the sand until your next turn
4-Do 3 cartwheels in a row
5-Spin a bottle, kiss the player it points to
6-Dance with no music for 1 chime
7-Spin a bottle, serenade the player it points to
8-Do push ups until you falter(0 fails)
9-Spin a bottle, switch clothes with the player it points to
10-Act like an animal of the groups choosing for 1 chime
11-Eat a handful of beach sand
12-Cuss at the top of your lungs
13-Spin a bottle, sit on the lap of the player it points to until your next turn
14-While blindfolded, take a bite of a food and guess what it is
15-Spin a bottle, be spanked by the player it points to
16-Don’t look. Find a shell thrown by another player
17-Pretend to swim on the sand
18-Spin a bottle, massage the player it points to until your next turn
19-Play the rest of the game naked
20-Dare decided by other players.

Everyone is approved. Kamilia, you don't have to submit this simple game to the World Forge Forum. I can add it to the wiki as I get time as is.

Syka Submissions - Locations, Ideas, Etc

Postby Kamilla on May 2nd, 2019, 8:53 pm

So, I was going through the NPC list and I thought a tracker might fill out the roster nicely, perhaps for rescue missions or things like that. I tried to make him amusing too.

Image
Name:Ken Chi
Race:Kelvic(Green junglefowl)
DoB:Summer 515AV
PoB:Syliras
Title:Ranger, Lead Tracker
Skills: 76 Wilderness Survival, 65 Tracking, 60 Giant Machete, 57 Bodybuilding, 51 Seduction, 39 Land Navigation, 27 Falconry
Gnosis:1 Mark of Eywaat
Additional Info:

One day the remains of what seemed to be a pirate ship washed up on the shores of Syka and amongst those remains was a single live, colorful, chicken, seemingly the only survivor of the wreck. It turned out that the chicken was actually a green junglefowl and a kelvic, Ken.

Since his arrival in Syka, Ken has proven himself to be an asset to the settlement, fancying himself somewhat of a hero, he quickly found his place amongst the rangers. He is extremely brave and is always willing help, especially when it comes to heading out into the jungle to find lost settlers, having had a hand in the locating and rescuing of the majority of Sykans who’d ventured further than they could handle.

Despite all his heroic qualities, his vice seems to be women, professing his love to any that catch his eye but never committing to one. He claims to be ‘mostly’ a vegetarian, but will never say no to snake meat.

Postby Sophia Sunshore on May 22nd, 2019, 9:37 am

I wanted to contribute something to Syka, and of course it's going to be a plant! I hope I have covered everything information-wise.

Image


Name: Purple Talon Flower

Type: Flower

Frequency: Common

Location: The Rainforests of Syka. The plant is found in the understorey layer, usually growing in clumps beneath taller trees.

Description: While a fairly common flower, the Talon Flower is not easy to find unless one is comfortable in the rainforest. It is a shrubby flower, growing to a maximum of 45cm tall. Each shrub grows 4 or 5 branching stems from its base and they are covered with tiny leaves. The leaves are flat and rigid, and quite sharp should you poke the tip of one. The flower itself very eye-catching, and each branch holds 2-3 flowers that are about palm-sized. Each flower has 5 rich purple petals arranged in a star shape. The ends of the petals split into ‘fingers’ and curve inwards, resembling something akin to a sinister hand or talon - for which the plant is named after. The flower has a single style that curves from the center and 80+ stamens that fill the bowl-like middle of the flower.

Uses: The flowers or leaves do not have any special uses, although if bought into domestic cultivation it would make a very attractive ornamental plant. No part of the plant is toxic and cannot be used for poisons. If many flowers were gathered, it could potentially be used to create a purple dye. The main use for the Talon Flower however, is in the roots. When gathered correctly, the roots contain a substance that can aid in reducing a fever.

Everything is approved. The Herbarium can be posted next season pending Sophia's training. Jungle Fever is in the wiki. Ken Chi is in the NPC masterlist but I removed his gnosis since rank four gods and goddesses no longer have gnosis powers unless they are special cases. And while I love the flower, I have no other fauna to go with it so its going to sit a while until I come up with a sort of flora/fauna list for Syka. I want to figure out how I want to do it before I go further. The flower can be mentioned and used in thread however.

Thanks guys!

Kamilla's Abode


Located South of the Syka Commons in a mountaun wedged between Treasure Point and Stairstep Falls is Kamilla's home. The cave like entrance can be found by simply following the Cobbled Pathway south until one comes across a neatly carved out oval shaped opening into the small mountain. If one were to peer inside, they'd see a simple staircase leading upward and deeper into the mountain.

Carved out of the mountain with the use of reimancy, Kamilla's home can be found at the top of the stone staircase, where the tunnel opens up into a large dome like cave covered in smooth stone. There is no wall on the opposite end of the cave, instead, what seems to be a shimmering veil separates the inner part of the cave from the patio, which overlooks a good portion of the jungle and Stairstep Falls to the south, while the Treasure Point and the Suvan Sea can be seen to the ease and finally, Syka can be seen in the distance to the north. A few simple seats and a table can be found on here, and in the right corner is a small sapling of a growing lemon tree.

Coming from the staircase, inside the cave is the large main hall where a bed and large chest of drawers can be found against the right wall, while on the immediate left is a door leading to a small storage room. The left half of the large room contains seats and a dining table with a small brazier in the center, as well as some counters. A single stone column, hollowed out and used as a fireplace, obstructs the otherwise panoramic view on the opposite end of the cave just within the protective shimmering barrier.

Because of the stone walls it is almost always pleasantly cool, in comparison to outdoors, within the cave, unless there's a fire going, though during times like these Kamilla usually lowers the shimmering veil to allow the air to flow freely through her home.

While the entire area is very simplistic and bare bones, it suits the mage's tastes just fine. The modest home has some charm to it, it is spacious and uncluttered and when things are quiet, the sounds of the nearby falls can be heard as well as that of a small stream running along part of the mountain. Her claim stretches from the beach and back into the jungle.
