Welcome Sykans!

If you are playing your PC in Syka in The Fall of 522 be sure and register! I will use the information you provide in your registry entry to plan for Syka Events this season and further your personal plots. It is important to not give generic answers but to be very specific and thoughtful responses.

Before you start playing in Syka for the first time, you'll need to speak to me about accommodations, job, or whether you have coin enough to support yourself. If you want to start a business or get a loan for a home, there are funds available via a loan from The Founders of Syka.

There are also leadership positions available in the form of Guardians of Syka. Also let me know if you are interested in one of those positions.

Syka requires certain skills. For example, if you do not have a Wilderness Survival skill of Expert or higher, you cannot leave the confines of the Settlement to venture out into The Maw without an expert guide. The entire list of the Syka Recommended Skills is as follows:

Wilderness Survival: E+
Weapon: C+
Hunting: C+
Foraging: C+
Carpentry: N+
Construction: N+

N = Novice, C = Competent, E = Expert, M = Master

Thank you all!

Gossamer

The Syka Character Registry - Fall 522 A.V.

Postby Tazrae on September 3rd, 2022, 3:07 am

Character Registry


  1. What is your name?

      Tazrae Ardera
  2. Who are you? Be as lengthy as you'd like.

      I'm a simple Innkeeper, ranger, would-be warrior, a Guardian of Syka, and an aspiring Archaeomage.
  3. Are you a resident or tourist?

      Resident
  4. Tell us one dream your PC has for the future.

      Taking the role of Guardian seriously, Tazrae takes her duty to Syka seriously. Taz has invested time and effort into seeking out new forms of protection for the denizens. These forms include helping make magic openly accepted in Syka, encouraging new people to explore the jungle and learn new things, and most importantly learning about the past.

      Taz has also learned that as of 522, of the old guardians of Pavena... a cohort of ancient and off-world creatures that are not only sentient but keepers of knowledge long lost. With her discovery of Reclaimed Knowledge - the ancient Pavena Library - Taz has taken an interest in the history and what befell Pavena. To that end, she's been curating a collection of knowledge and cultivating a friendship with many of the old ones so she can expand her abilities and help others find a way to do likewise.
  5. How do you plan on supporting yourself?

      Taz is a business owner that supports her efforts nicely.
  6. What would be considered your PC's absolute dream best day?

      Tazrae's dream best day is probably the numerous afternoons she spends at her Palapa, watching the sea roll in and enjoying the peace of a lazy Syka afternoon. She'd like to be there with loved ones, but sometimes the Ixam are more than enough.
  7. What one aspect of your PC do you really want to explore this season?

      I really want to finish developing new magics this season. I've lacked time in the past but I think I'm freeing up time as the busy season at my real life closes in.
  8. Does your PC have any goals this season?

      I have a whole list of goals found in my plotnotes.
  9. If you were here last season, what skills did you work on and why?

      I worked heavily on weapons, and I'd like to continue with that. I'd like to expand my compound longbow, whip, blowgun, and a few other assorted weapons to make my character more lethal.
  10. Tell me why you chose Syka? What are some of its good aspects? What are some of its drawbacks?

      I absolutely love the setting.
  11. Is there anything you'd like to see changed or improved?

      I'd like to see people keep their promises, stop dropping threads, follow through with their plans and generally stop disappointing me as a player and as a storyteller. I know this isn't going to happen, but I'm starting to be numb to it all and just go through the motions and nod and smile when people make me promises and never keep them.

      The only thing you can count on in this game is solos. I'd like to see that change.
  12. What does your PC add to Syka?

      You'd have to ask someone else that. I don't see her having that much value other than as providing a place for people to gather and eat.
  13. Do you have Wilderness Survival at Expert or higher? Y/N This means you are now a Sykan Ranger.

      I have Wilderness Survival at Master. I plan to max it one of these days just for fun.
  14. Additional Comments?

      Talk to me if you want a relationship with Taz. Keep your promises. Don't speak in silence. Don't be an asshat and I will be your friend.

The Syka Character Registry - Fall 522 A.V.

Postby Adisa Niobe on September 3rd, 2022, 10:56 am

Character Registry
  1. What is your name?

    Adisa Niobe

  2. Who are you? Be as lengthy as you'd like.

    I am an animal healer, working for Nora.

  3. Are you a resident or tourist?

    Resident.

  4. Tell us one dream your PC has for the future.

    Adisa's ultimate goal would be to master Animal Husbandry, Medicine, Herbalism and have her own business healing animals. As well as figuring out how to live life without her husband.

  5. How do you plan on supporting yourself?

    Working as an animal healer for Nora.

  6. What would be considered your PC's absolute dream best day?

    Running around barefoot on the beach without tears welling up in her eyes.

  7. What one aspect of your PC do you really want to explore this season?

    To work on her personal relationships since work is all she has right now.

  8. Does your PC have any goals this season?

    To increase her Medicine and Herbalism skills and to get to know others in the hopes of giving herself a reason to stay.

  9. If you were here last season, what skills did you work on and why?

    I wasn't here.

  10. Tell me why you chose Syka? What are some of its good aspects? What are some of its drawbacks?

    It's a really cool location that I've never explored before. I'm mostly a city girl, so it was hard for me to come up with a story I felt comfortable telling in Syka. Also, the Wilderness Skill was a barrier to entry. It's the skill I've used the least and had no idea how to even begin to design a character around it. It's taken me years to figure out.

  11. Is there anything you'd like to see changed or improved?

    For now, no. This is my first season here so I haven't experience anything yet.

  12. What does your PC add to Syka?

    Adisa's an animal healer, so if anyone has any animals they'd like to bring her way, she'd love to see them.

  13. Do you have Wilderness Survival at Expert or higher? Y/N This means you are now a Sykan Ranger.

    No.

  14. Additional Comments?

    I'm new to the area and getting my feet wet, so please keep that in mind. Also, I love to plot. I'm not good at having PCs standing around for the sake of standing around. I really want us to have opposing goals in any threads we come up with to make it easier to write interesting stories.

The Syka Character Registry - Fall 522 A.V.

Postby Shade on September 3rd, 2022, 4:13 pm

Character Registry

  1. What is your name?

      Shadekas, but you can call me Shade.
  2. Who are you? Be as lengthy as you'd like.

      I'm an ex-Nykan Monk who recently moved to Syka to fulfill a favor to a friend that was something of a life debt. I was glad to do it, but here I am something of a fish out of water. In Nyka, Monks rule the city. We are no better than thugs though, and it was a way of life I didn't exactly enjoy. I liked having enough to eat, but my consciousness is bigger than my mean streak and I didn't fit in. I constantly fought with my own kind and bent the rules to see people taken care of. That wasn't exactly going to get me to lead a long and healthy life. You go against the grain there, you feed the fishes.

      Here, I want a more settled life. I was under the impression my duty to that friend would be up after a period of time here, but I see my stay will be longer. To that end, I set up a shop and a business built a home, and am trying to make a go of it on a more permanent basis. Let's face it, the values of the Settlement are more in line with my nature and demeanor which are almost identical to each other. I might keep my thoughts to myself, but I don't hide who I am.
  3. Are you a resident or tourist?

      Resident.
  4. Tell us one dream your PC has for the future.

      I would like to start a family and see them live in a place that's safe for them to be themselves and experience true happiness. It would be nice if one or two of them would enjoy being jewelers or floriests as well.
  5. How do you plan on supporting yourself?

      I own Bangles and Blooms. You won't find it on the link map yet, because I have to finish a few 'build' threads in a previous season before Gossamer will let me put it up.
  6. What would be considered your PC's absolute dream best day?

      My best day would be one filled with quiet moments of pleasure. Good company, enough to eat, decent weather, and a roof over my head. Truthfully, there's been a lot of best days here. Did I mention a beautiful woman by my side, maybe with a baby or two in her arms? If ladies don't like babies, I don't want anything to do with them. I'm all about family.
  7. What one aspect of your PC do you really want to explore this season?

      I might have decided to open a partial florist shop without knowing anything about flowers. I think I'd better change that this season, right?
  8. Does your PC have any goals this season?

      I want to become more of a 'regular' and work on my WS. I'd love a little romance thrown in too, but I'll be honest I prefer a slow burn to a hot fling.
  9. If you were here last season, what skills did you work on and why?

      Last season was really rough for me to post. IRL I was ill a great deal with re-occurring pneumonia, at work the rest of the time, and experiencing full-fledged burnout. But I was flat on my back enough that the burnout is cured and I think I'm ready to launch into some new writing.
  10. Tell me why you chose Syka? What are some of its good aspects? What are some of its drawbacks?

      I like that Syka challenges me to learn new skills I don't really have an interest in outside of my online writing fantasies. I enjoy the setting, and honestly who wouldn't want to live in paradise? I like the danger aspect too. The settlement could be in true danger at any moment of the day. Hell, out picking flowers I could die. That adds a lot of spice to threads and gives me something to think about.
  11. Is there anything you'd like to see changed or improved?

      I love the number of areas that Syka has now. When it first started, it didn't have enough areas. I feel bad that new areas come in that are needed, PCs then show up and want to have their own businesses that infringe on the NPC businesses, but the Storyteller can't trust the PCs to stick around enough to get rid of the NPC businesses to give the PCs full and unrestricted access to a niche.

      The example I can think of best is the doctor situation. We didn't have a doctor for years in Syka, then one was put in, and multiple pcs want to show up and be doctors but there are already three here. It's kind of hard to navigate. It wouldn't be a problem in a big city, but since Syka has such a small population, it can be a bigger issue.

      Do I want the city to get bigger? No, not really. I like this small size. But do I want more and more varied areas? Yes.... keep putting areas in! I especially like the jungle locations I can't get to. More of those!
  12. What does your PC add to Syka?

      I don't know exactly what he adds, but I do know what I want him to add. I want him to be a voice of reason, a level head when drama erupts all around the Sykans. Shade is unflappable. He has a cool head in the face of chaos. Remember, he grew up around the Aperture, so he is used to this huge pit in the middle of his city spewing out god knows what - monsters, diseases, zombies, etc - at any given moment... so he's almost immune to all hell breaking loose and getting excited about it.
  13. Do you have Wilderness Survival at Expert or higher? Y/N. This means you are now a Sykan Ranger.

      No. I'll be working on it though.
  14. Additional Comments?

      If you'd like to build a relationship, hit me up for threads. I don't usually reach out because honestly people rarely follow through unless something is in it for them or it was their idea. But I'll be glad to help anyone with plots that want help.

Postby Shiress on September 9th, 2022, 6:28 pm

Character Registry

  1. What is your name?
    Shiress

  2. Who are you? Be as lengthy as you'd like.
    First and foremost, I am a mother. My four-year-old son, Ian, is my life, and there is nothing I wouldn't do for that little boy. I'm probably overprotective, but I don't coddle Ian as much as you might think.

    My second passion is being a physician. I was born to be a caretaker. Something Rak'Keli, The Goddess of Healing, observed about me also and marked me in Spring 522.

    I am also very stubborn and hard-headed and have a bad habit of putting myself into dangerous situations and not really realizing it. One might even hazard to say that I am drawn to danger, though I would argue that danger is drawn to me, maybe even hunts me.

  3. Are you a resident or tourist?
    Resident

  4. Tell us one dream your PC has for the future.
    I dream of a future of peace and contentment. A future where my son can flourish and grow in a protective environment and one that offers comfort and reassurance. Something neither of us has ever had.

  5. How do you plan on supporting yourself?
    I'm the children's Pavillion doctor. Syka's resident pediatrician.

  6. What would be considered your PC's absolute dream best day?
    A sandy beach, beautiful sunset, and a caring, honorable man to spend it with.

  7. Does your PC have any goals this season?
    Better learn to defend myself and learn all that I can about being a medic for the Sykan Rangers.

  8. If you were here last season, what skills did you work on and why? Medicine. A doctor should always strive to be better.

  9. Tell me why you chose Syka? What are some of its good aspects? What are some of its drawbacks?
    Syka was chosen for me when I fled Zeltiva. Had I known of Syka's beauty and kind community, I feel as if it would have been my only choice.

  10. Is there anything you'd like to see changed or improved?
    Nah, you can't improve on perfection.

  11. What does your PC add to Syka?
    Drama. Definitely drama.

  12. Do you have Wilderness Survival at Expert or higher?
    I do not but plan on remedying that this season.

  13. Additional Comments?
    I'm ready to write!
