Syliran Knights, Knighting Quests, And Volunteerism

Postby Samuel Longwell on July 24th, 2016, 8:48 pm

I think it's a great idea that would greatly improve how Syliras is run, freeing up valuable ST time. I don't think I currently have the experience necessary to volunteer, but I hope enough people do step up to get this off the ground.

Syliran Knights, Knighting Quests, And Volunteerism

Postby Sayana on July 24th, 2016, 9:00 pm

For those curious about what Knighting Quests are like, below are two samples. I believe they are the only Syliras Knighting Quests, but if there are others, someone please correct me.

Markus's Knighting Quest (Completed)

Pycon Knighting Quest (Ball, Nivel - retired, Archaillist - inactive) Ongoing


I don't know the Ravok-equivalent threads.

Syliran Knights, Knighting Quests, And Volunteerism

Hi all. I know I just got back from a long hiatus but if you need more volunteers for this, I'd be happy to do it. I am a grader and I have experience with Syliras and the Knighthood (although obviously I'd brush up on that) so I feel confident I'd be able to help out on this one.

I do have a few questions, although I'm sure you've already given these some thought. Would other members of the Syliran team be allowed to take over if for whatever reason one of us was unable to complete a quest? If so, will the forum have a place for us to keep notes, even in broad strokes, on the ongoing quests so that a team member wouldn't be starting completely from scratch? Also, I assume similar rules to an ST finishing up an old quest line would apply here? Finally, is this going to be something that requires a baseline level of activity to remain a part of the team or is it going to be more similar to a grader situation where, if someone doesn't do something for a while, they still have the opportunity to pick it up at any time?

Syliran Knights, Knighting Quests, And Volunteerism

I do think this is a great idea, and hope that if there ends up being a Ebonstryfe and Knight team they could perhaps tie in these threads going on at the same time on the two sides, though without directly making the pc's oppose.

Since Sayana brought it up, here are some of the Ravok equivalent threads.

For Ravok there are really two sides to things, the military side(Ebonstryfe) and the religious side(Black Sun).

Both have their own rituals and trials one must pass to become a member, which are detailed in depth on their respective lore pages.

Usually for the Ebonstryfe there is a smaller trial to become an apprentice, and then the actual crucible thread where one is marked by Rhysol and becomes a full soldier of the Ebonstryfe, which would perhaps be the closest thing to a knighting quest.

I could only find my own, but I know Irriari and Sevris both passed one, but for the life of me I can't find their respective crucible threads. There might be others also but I know both of those had one. And I think technically Annalisa Marin passed the Black Sun test to become an acolyte, when she gained her second mark.

Clyde's crucible

edit: And Sayana found Sevris' crucible

And Irriari's incomplete crucible

Clydes Stuff

I am actually in RL a super intelligent hamster from Rhode Island, with a 7 year plan to take over the world.

Update 6/2/18- 1:10AM EST: His 7 year plan a success, and several weeks ahead of schedule, Clyde leaves to oversee the world he has taken over.

No new threads after end of Spring 518-Will still be checking for PM's occasionally, but focusing on a new character.

Graders note: :
Please be aware Clyde is a master Magecrafter. He therefore should not be gaining full xp(or possibly shouldn't gain any at all) for simple tasks related to this magic, such as low level MC items, particularly for repetitions of creations he has done before. Feel free to contact me if unsure of a instance of his magic use compared to his skill level.

Orin's Questions:

I do have a few questions, although I'm sure you've already given these some thought. Would other members of the Syliran team be allowed to take over if for whatever reason one of us was unable to complete a quest? If so, will the forum have a place for us to keep notes, even in broad strokes, on the ongoing quests so that a team member wouldn't be starting completely from scratch? Also, I assume similar rules to an ST finishing up an old quest line would apply here? Finally, is this going to be something that requires a baseline level of activity to remain a part of the team or is it going to be more similar to a grader situation where, if someone doesn't do something for a while, they still have the opportunity to pick it up at any time?


Yes, I think tag team taking over threads would be more than acceptable if people have to leave for a while or vanish... the goal is to get these knights and their quests finished.

I'll give you a subforum in Miz Discussion Forum for the Syliran Team.

You guys can decide your own rules. I won't boot anyone for activity, but if the crowd wants to vote someone off the island, I'll be fine with that.

Clyde's Input:

Since Ravok has an ST now, this could really evolve into an Ebonstryfe thing too.

Syliran Knights, Knighting Quests, And Volunteerism

Postby Pulren Marsh on July 25th, 2016, 12:49 am

I volunteer to assist any team that helps long term player plots propel. I've been waiting on Oceanus a long time and long ago with Lu I had a similar wait with Zintila. My grading needs to pick up but if I can be considered and help this get off the ground, I am 100 percent on board for Syliras and Ravok.

I'd be happy to help as well. Watching quests get started and dropped repeatedly over the years has always been a painful experience, and this seems like a good way to sort that problem out.

Syliran Knights, Knighting Quests, And Volunteerism

Postby Aladari Coolwater on July 26th, 2016, 3:28 am

I don't know if I would quite yet qualify, as my post count is not nearly as high as some of the other volunteers, but I am an active grader, and would love to volunteer if I am eligible. These quests are very exciting to read (when they do go through) and I believe they would be a lot of fun to create with a character.

I would also be more than happy to join an Ebonstryfe or other away-team, as it may be, if there is a need for those folks.

I'm afraid the answer from me is going to have to be a No. Looking at my schedule, I'm not going to consistently have the time, and I'm not going to take on another commitment when my activity levels are so erratic.
Very busy at work. May not be around much for a while.

I would like to volunteer eventually. I'm planning on retaking the grader test when the 60 day cool-down is done.

I would love to see this off the ground, and help with any way I can. Can people outside the Syliran Team give like suggestions for quests or plots? Of course I doubt there'd be a shortage of stories and ideas, but I think at least giving ideas would be okay.
