A city floating in the center of a lake, Ravok is a place of dark beauty, romance and culture. Behind it all though is the presence of Rhysol, God of Evil and Betrayal. The city is controlled by The Black Sun, a religious organization devoted to Rhysol. [Lore]

Weakest Aspect of Ravok: I don't think I'm experienced enough to answer this question.
Greatest Aspect of Ravok: I don't think I'm experienced enough to answer this question.

What's one thing you want to improve upon as a writer this season? Cut down on my flowery language. Weird adverbs and adjectives can really make my writing unhelpfully fluffy, and I want to stop that.

Would you consider writing a short thread (1500-2000 words) in an effort to rebuild one of the buildings that have been destroyed? Yes I would!

Briefly explain your basic perception of Ravok. Theocratic Venice governed by the god of Evil and Chaos, where the citizens live peaceful lives mostly free of crime and danger (compared to the rest of the world), where arts and business flourish in safety.

Most people dislike social/party threads for various reasons. What is one way you think a festival or holiday could be celebrated that would get around this stigma? I like social threads if they aren't cardboard. I'm not sure about which celebrations exactly would get around the stigma, but I would like to see more than one holiday in the year. Perhaps a celebration of the arts, where PC and NPC artists and craftsmen display their best work in an attempt to win the attention of Rhysol or the Black Sun?

What types of plots interest you the most? This season, social and job threads are my starting points – I want to get to know Artigan as a character before I decide what's most interesting.

What types of plots fit your character the best? See above.

You may ask one question of your ST. Where have all the good men gone and where are all the gods?

Character Name: Rhyson Halfhame
CS: Rhyson's CS
Purpose of Residence: Resident of Ravok, and Private Investigator Extraordinaire!
Duration of Stay: Indefinite or Until He Gets Kicked Out
Do you want to participate in the Buzz on the Lake? Yes
Need Moderator’s Assistance: No.
Character Goals:
  • To become an established investigator, quite possibly in service to one of the Noble Families of Ravok.
  • To brush up against one of the forces working in Ravok, like The Black Sun, Rising Dawn, Ebonstryfe, etc.


Weakest Aspect of Ravok: Totally new to Ravok, and I couldn't say just yet. Ask again come Summer.
Greatest Aspect of Ravok: I'd definitely love for there to be more artwork of Ravok, because as a concept I think it's brilliant for visualizing through art. But I guess that's up to Miz's artists huh?

What's one thing you want to improve upon as a writer this season? I want to work on revising, being persistent, and also on tuning in a bit more to my go-with-the-flow style where I just get acquainted with the setting but don't get hung up on tiny details.

Would you consider writing a short thread (1500-2000 words) in an effort to rebuild one of the buildings that have been destroyed? More to write, more to learn, more to experience! I'm all for it! I've been looking for the cure to those painful times when I've got plenty to spare on Miz but nothing to respond to. Sounds perfect!

Briefly explain your basic perception of Ravok. So picture Venice my dude, only instead of being heavily Roman Catholic, they worship a dark god of EVIL. But my dude, the Ravokians think this god is the shizzle. And there's a bunch of these priest cats, and they kind of run things with the help of these mafia toughs, man. It's like Scarface meets The Borgias all up in this with a sprinkling of Indiana Jones, my dude. This city's legit.

Most people dislike social/party threads for various reasons. What is one way you think a festival or holiday could be celebrated that would get around this stigma? Well if you were to ask me, the worst part of social/party threads is getting hung up on waiting for somebody's response for days, especially if there's a lot of players. The easiest way in my mind to get around this would be to have a built-in IRL timer, where unless the person gave warning of their absence, should the timer expire the next person in the post order could go ahead. Or you know, just don't have a post order I guess. I don't really mind social threads anyway.

What types of plots interest you the most? Plots where you can explore character, and relationships. Mizahar, I'm sure, could be amazing for a big region-wide event, as I haven't participated in any yet. Maybe even inter-region event, though that would be truly massive. At its core though, Miz lets us explore characters and relationships through threads. So I like to plot how my character and others will get into amusing, scary, or downright forbidding scenarios, and then when we get there, see where the characters take us!

What types of plots fit your character the best? Mysteries, intrigue, crime, and lots and lots of self-reflection. My character's basically tailor-made to be put up against different personalities, where he will then deconstruct them to the point that they are little more than a simple puzzle piece to him, and then a big part of the plot revolves around how this particular puzzle piece fits into Rhyson himself.

You may ask one question of your ST. Hey Proph. So... Nice weather we're having, huh?
