Rage Zone / Re: Players behind Ascalon - greed at its finest

Yeah. I don't play in Ascalon for the history or RP, all I play for is the gameplay mechanics.

Since I've been banned from discord for some time now, I'd just like to let everyone know that this game is dying and soon we'll be gone. Don't worry. The shittiness of this game and its community is catching up to it, and so is its lack of moderation or direction. Hawks'll get everyone else to quit too sooner or later. I'm interested in the seeing the wargame between Hawks after we all quit. So have fun I guess. You won't have to deal with the piece of shit Ascalon people anymore. Wargame to your heart's content.

The realm has been doing well despite the rise of the Void in South. We are currently looking to recruit more members

Yeah when my last knight never answered and literally ran around with the people raiding my settlements it pretty much confirmed that person was a spy.

I mean when more than half of the people who take Knight Offers are spies, its a problem.

Stories to tell / Argylle One-Eye
« on: October 25, 2017, 01:34:01 AM »
Chains shook and men screamed, the maelstrom of battle was almost a formality at this point. Halfhaven banners flapped proudly amongst the ranks. Ascalonian light cavalry had harried the brigands from Ryegard to Nadeston which had worked perfectly in Lord Halfhaven's favor.

The House held a war council the previous night to clarify the order of battle. Knights and scribes surrounded the war table where Lord Halfhaven had already visualized the military situation. He looked to his sons, first calling his youngest son Ancel forward. He had recently been made Lord of his father's northern estates, Nadeston particularly. "Ride hard for Rindletown and raise the levy there. Move west here and then head north there to cut off this 'Argylle's' avenue of retreat." Feanor pulled Ancel to him softly, "This is a chance to prove yourself Ancel. Do not fail our House again. You should take a journeyman of the hunter's guild with you so your company doesn't get lost." The young man nodded, red of hair and dressed in a tarnished suit of Wakesworth plate, and bid his father farewell without joy or grace. He knew the men of Rindletown and knew they were men of the fyrd, equipped with their work clothing, spears, and not much else. It wasn't like he hadn't been expecting such treatment since the return of their "beloved" Dorian. Ancel caught eyes with Dorian before his departure with a look of envy concealed only by the warmth of kinship. His steps echoed fiercely as he left the keep, hand on his broadsword and followed by his retainers.

"Dorian come here!" The Lord and his son were almost twins, now both past their youthful days. Dorian stood nearly the same height as his father, with long braided black hair covering his armored shoulders. Feanor wore proudly the indicative fur cloak of Northmen Lords which was set against his silvery black hair. The two embraced with smiles and exchanged familial chatter making for a much lighter scene. "You'll be entrusted with some three hundred gold to recruit some sellword company to our ranks. The Band of the Swan should be arriving within the day. Seek them out." Going over the organization of the battle he spoke, "I shall lead the center, some two hundred spears and axemen. Dorian you shall lead the right with your sellswords. Ancel should take the enemy unaware from the rear."

Shattered shields and at least fifty dead and dying men were scattered about the grassy melee. Lord Feanor had withstood the brunt of the starving brigand's assault taking substantial losses while Dorian's men made headway chewing through the enemy's left flank. The battle had lasted for some three hours with no sign of Ancel's force. Halfhaven banners stood as strong as the men carrying them however and kept the troops in good morale. At the penultimate moment of the battle the bandit leader, a towering Northman by the name of Argylle broke through a section of the Halfhaven shieldwall with his bodyguards. A chaotic fracas ensued with Argylle cleaving a bloody path through atleast a dozen Halfhaven soldiers. He killed men with a single blow of his battleaxe, lifting full grown men off of their feet. After receiving a message of his men's plight, Lord Halfhaven rode hard for that part of the line. Dismounted and with his visor lowered, the Lord of Starfall engaged the Bandit known as Argylle with cold steel. Men around them ceased fighting for a moment as they watched the 6'9 giant battle the Lord of Starfall, encased in a suit of light blue plate with a fluttering blue cloak emblazoned with the sigil of his House. Battleaxe was parried by longsword again and again, leaving white chips in the blade. The clamor of steel gives a man a rush unlike any other and this was no exception.

The duel seemed to have lasted almost thirty minutes when the unfurled banners of Ancel Halfhaven arrived at the rear of the bandit host and within minutes had begun to scatter what remained of the outlaws. As for Argylle, he continued fighting as his men fled all around him. Only his bodyguards continued to fight to the death, two of them single handedly slain by Dorian Halfhaven. Only after a swift riposte from Lord Halfhaven exploiting a wide sweep sliced his left eye open did he surrender, and all his men were either dead, captured, or routed. The giant was bound in chains and made ready for the slow march back to Starfall.

This is the story of how Argylle One-Eye became sworn to House Halfhaven.

Andrew says move on you two. Drop it and move on. Who cares. Stop trying to win or have the last word.

 ;D  You're right Andrew.

Lasar to me, as someone who wasn't playing in year 1, is a player myth of MF. I've heard of his reign and the rebellion he caused since I first started playing. Thats some magic right there. If you were active from year like 5 onward you couldn't really miss the de Renais' spread out over the Fading Sea (or whatever). As for Arescod, Richard and Roran were different characters for sure. And while there were other living Arescod's they all had a personality or charm. If you were a ruler of the world you knew at least one Arescod from some banquet or feast, or war.  :o

There was a quote here before a moderator removed it.

Back to business:

That said, rereading this topic makes me want to add player culture group systems in to the game.

That would be really good honestly. I've had this feeling as well, like weird "Eastern European" and "Asian" cultures didn't feel right. Every area does by now have its own history and culture, in some form at least.

Jesus. Yeah I post for the first time in a board in four months let me make all these accusations and try to quash discussion. Yay. No it isn't that serious, Stonedman gets hate because of the way he played. I played with some of his dudes and it was fun. Was he a good guy, sure. Did he play like an ass, certainly. And I called him a twat as an old guard forum shitpost type post, not even a funny post, get this insecure stick out of your ass Weaver no ones been "spreading rumors" about you for 120 days. Seriously man.

Sorry Weaver not everyone had fun in the EI, thats just a fact. Being you I don't think you are the best to have a perspective on that. Plenty of good parts about it, but there were bad parts to. It was like talking to an AI. You are literally one of the only(this is a tenuous statement, perhaps the only person) people who had a sense of power and have the choice of whether someone can do something or not. Otherwise you die. That's not fun :/. And if you are telling me tons of people live and played in the EI under your fun reign i'm already laughing.

Let me edit this in. You don't need to make it about slander, dude I can have an opinion. You are so quick to defend and judge. "How dare you think this, I am righteous and it was fun! Just don't be stupid lol"

I was looking at the Legendary Families section of the wiki and I've seen there aren't any. Who could be?
o be honest, I'd put Stonedman there even if he was a twat. Eirenikos, Symmachus, Calinus, Arescod, Lasar maybe. Lasar is an almost mythological name to some people. Like he never really existed.

So the Lowlands are almost gone and Ascalon owns land on the northern coast. I'm pretty sure thats unprecedented. What Strenvale just joined Ascalon, are Rothrik and Blancbaston the same? Rathgar is just a small Kingdom in the northwest. A pity though I'm sure they are still powerful. And the Imperium isn't just filled with Weaver's characters anymore, yay! This is a wild thought but maybe it'll be filled with some new interesting people instead of the masked dudes who don't let anyone do anything.

General Discussion / Re: What is an Artifact worth? (In Credits)
« on: October 19, 2017, 10:15:12 PM »
Oh god, I don't wanna say how much I'd cough up for it! I'm sure a lot of people have wasted their artifact. Mine is tied to the founder of my House and so it'll always have a small sentimental place for me at least, and a reason for war at best. What's yours Andrew? The people need to know.
