[Discussion] The Entire Eyktol Region

Postby Gossamer on January 22nd, 2017, 4:05 pm


Okay I've had a few questions so let me clear some things up. The Benshira rewrite will go through the WD forum process. The Citys will not since cities traditionally haven't been subject to WD. If you are interested in taking on a city here in Mizahar, you need to be an active moderator or be in the process of joining the moderation staff. If you build it, type thing, you need to run it. Here's what I am looking for in a city.

1. A clear concept that is wholly originally to the Mizahar world.
2. An abstract that can become the basic outline of a new codex. The abstract must include:

  • a brief history of the city
  • a brief blurb about how the city is organized
  • a brief blurb about the city's government (if any)
  • a brief blurb about employment, trade, crops, etc.
  • a brief blurb about faith
  • a brief blurb about demographics

The last idea we had for a city was Alvadas and it turned out fantastic. It was so well designed that we could not say no. We also had a very tragic situation for Lhavit. A very enlightened and fantastic design was turned in and but was not followed for the final product (after approval) resulting in a ton of city rewrites. There is no need to stick to any sort of original design or faith of an existing Eyktol city. We will be replacing all of them including Hai.

There is no need to stick to what an earthen view of a desert city would be. If it is remotely unoriginal, we won't entertain it. It has to be something a player would be drawn too.

Update.

I've kept my promises. Eypharian has been updated to the re-write with the exception of the Hierarchy section which was never rewritten. That needs scaled down because its stupidly complex and unnecessary.

Yahal's Gnosis has been updated with quotes removed and images changed.

There are two cities being worked on currently. We still need a third adopted. Register via the HD if you want to take a stab at it.

I've seen nothing on the Benshira rewrite. I hope to see some progress there soon.

It's up? It's up! Aaaah! I wanted to pop in out of lurker staus and express my excitement over finally seeing the Eypharian project come to a conclusion, as well as offer the Eyph discussion thread as a resource for ideas for the Benshira. Particularly the first couple pages, where Hirem and I spitballed a bit on what direction the Benshira might take. Given that both of us are retired, I'm not sure if it'll be any help at all, but I wanted to throw it out there in case even a little bit of it is of use to someone. All the luck in the world to those who are volunteering their time to make this project happen :)

For the cities being worked on, are they taking the basis of the original cities, or completely recreating? I ask because I love the idea of Hai as a home for the cursed, deformed, and rejected, raised like slaves by the "government", even if the factions and history need scrapped. I would love to adopt the city if it will go by the wayside otherwise. However, I wouldn't want to have two cities of that same idea.

And much love to those who are currently working on these huge projects. If you need any help at all, call me and I will do my best.

Yes, I'm doing the Benshira!

Thank you so much, Rosela! That was helpful - and so was the Eypharian article as a whole, what with how interconnected the two races have been throughout their history.

Hi all, I thought I'd let everyone know I'm working on the re-write of Ahnatep. As it stands currently, Languish, because Ahnatep already has a lot of importance to people's storylines it won't be completely nuked from orbit. Instead, it is to be re-worked to become more original than it is currently.

I wanted to drop a little note for Dovey (and anyone, I suppose): is there anything you think should be included in Ahnatep in relation to the Benshira race? I'm all for interconnectivity and so it would suck to pass on the opportunity to make the Eyktol region more connected, story-wise.

Other than the two races' mutual disdain, and the information already in the Eypharian article, I don't have much to give you just yet. Gossamer hasn't reviewed my overview yet, but assuming she approves it, Ahnatep would need to keep its marble catacombs - that's where the Benshira of Ahnatep waited out the Valterrian. I assume that's all right? That's all I have for now.

Are there any updates to the Benshira? And would it be possible to add some input to it?
As for Ahnnatep, I imagine the slavery would remain, at least I hope? I don't know if it plays an important role to other characters, but it is important to Makah'a's history.

No updates on the Benshira yet, sorry! But yes, I'd love your input.
