Lore and Shit

Post  Sneak0070 on Mon Apr 15, 2013 12:42 pm

Right. So I'm at school, pretending to help people with math until 5:30 today. So I've got a few ideas for backstory lore, and if nobody cares, I'm going to be writing some up and posting it here throughout the day.

But first: What the hell is the country name, and did we make an official decision on the naga and spiderfolk races?

Dunno. But my personal opinion is, Spider-folk/Naga = Awesome.

If we tell people to install the mod, and they don't do it and things look funky to them, I'd say that's their problem. But that's my .02

Sneaky!!! Let the ideas commence. C'mon, I'm bored and just pretending to work anyhow Very Happy

Glad I'm not alone! Here, this is what I have so far for the human lore. I'm think it be best to have a seperate lore for each race, to show their own point of view, so this is the human one. I have some ideas for the elf lore too, but it's hard to do too much without knowing the finally word on what races are allowed. Right now I'm writing it like they're not, though I've left opening for them.

HUMAN LORE COMMENCE:
Spoiler:
There have always been humans in [COUNTRYNAME]. Well, not always, but for as long as memory exists. And it’s always been a struggle for them to survive against the near constant assault of the undead. But they have indeed survived, if only barely. In the face of such strife, many turned to religion, blaming them heathens among them for their current struggles. Their king, [HUMANNAME], did not share in these beliefs, but the people did, and he took the leader of the cult, [CULTNAME], as his head advisor. Under his guidance they made sacrifices to the undead, in attempt to appease them. It wasn’t until a band of elves showed up at the front gate and offered their assistance that any progress was made against the undead hordes.
With the elves and their magic, the humans were able to drive back the undead into the wilderness. Grateful to his new allies, [HUMAN NAME] granted the elves a nearby peaceful forest to build their home in. The human and elves have been on good terms ever since, despite the best effort of [CULT NAME]. Many years later the dwarfs came and set up their own town. Despite the fact their elven friends did not approve of the dwarfs careless mining behaviors that would destroy landscapes, the humans where amazed by their creative inventions. The humans and dwarfs became quick friends.
Then. Then the orcs came. They ravaged and pillaged the country side, even worse than the undead had in years past.

EDIT:
Got some more crap. I... have no idea for dwarf lore. None.

ELF LORE COMMENCE:
Spoiler:
The elves worship nature. Their attention and care for nature caused [GODNAME], their goddess, to grant them the ability to do magic. They lived in peace for generation, until their leader, [ELFNAME], started to practice dark magic and became corrupt. He was eventually defeated by a group of elves, led by his own niece, [ELFLADYNAME], but the land was corrupted beyond hope, and the elves were forced to leave their homeland.
They found [COUNTRYNAME] and took pity on the humans they found there. Despite the wishes of the [CULTNAME], the king’s advisor, King [HUMANNAME] allowed the elves inside the city walls. With the elves’ assistance, the humans were able to drive back the undead horde and bring relative peace back to their lands. As thanks for their help, [HUMANNAME] gave the [FORESTNAME] to make their new home. Through their magic, the elves have grown three massive trees that form the center of their forest home.
Then the dwarves came. The elves strongly disapprove of their behavior towards nature. Their careless mining behaviors destroy the natural beauty of the mountains, but the elves can take no action. The humans, their closest allies, are too intrigued with the dwarven inventions to care what harm they cause to the environment, and the elves are unwilling to outright attack an ally of their ally, but they do not permit dwarves within their city.

Not bad. So the idea is the humans are allied with most everyone at this point, with the exception of the Orcs, because Orcs.

Yeah, but they have the internal conflict of the cult. Because there were cultists mentioned yesterday. And who doesn't enjoy a nice cult now and then?

Hey I'm a fan. Ofcourse, if we're sticking with the Cults as they were previously considered, (IE. Cults of the Elder Gods), they're really *everyones* enemy, although mostly indirectly.

Yeah, I hinted at them not liking the elves either. I figure at some point in the point something will be done about them, but for the start, they'll be a mostly human problem and cause tension between human and elf.

So, do we have anything official at this point? Or are still throwing things at Eli and Sight and seeing what sticks to them? Very Happy

If you get on the server, assuming they haven't changed anything, they have some books that have the approved races, which are humans, dwarfs, elves, orcs, anansi(spiderfolk) and coatl(naga).

They also have the relationships between the races, and how each race approaches magic.

No official backstory or anything like that, that I know of.

Also, Sight spent most of yesterday streaming himself working on painting the map. It looks pretty awesome so far. ^-^
