Well hello folks. Long time no... Sei?
I was feeling all nostalgic last week after discussing old gaming groups and games with a friend, so I came back and wound up spending several hours reading through old threads. After running into a little login problem and getting that fixed, I've found myself reading through the... good lord, somewhere in the vicinity of 4000, in game posts that I have access to. I've recently gotten to the point where Morgan accidentally resurrected a goddess.

While I have fallen away from play-by-post gaming (obviously) I have been keeping the nerd cred up with something called HEMA, or Historical European Martial Arts. It's lots of fun and good exercise.

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello to everyone, and thank you all for being awesome.

Hello Spat! Not much play by post from me either since Covid began, perhaps ironically.
Glad to know you're well! It's been tons of fun. You and Morgan really did awesome.

I still miss playing this and wonder how things were meant to go from what we did.

I'd argue you two were nearly as important as Makenshi to the game. I don't think we'll ever finish off the game in play, but maybe if Makenshi comes back, he'll write a summary on how the game would have ended, and we'll get to write our characters endings.

Well, the more I read the more I'm fired up to get back into it, but that would be dependent on Mak both coming back and accepting my return.
I'm only just now getting to the point where I stopped playing (just finishing chapter six now), and I have to admit that there have been a lot of cool and interesting player characters over the years.

Well I did ghost on everyone, which is not cool, and I would totally understand if he felt uncertain about having me join up again just to maybe ghost again later.

Well. Having read through everything (twice in some spots) and taken a few notes, I can see a few spots where we/I dropped the ball on a few threads.

-Eve's body bit. I think that might be/have been our way into Sanctuary. Destroy her body and the head regrows a new body, then she might be able to let us in.

-The Isabella being captured thing was something that I somehow entirely misconstrued as the guy hinting that she'd been a plant/fake.

-When visiting Vulcar's tomb we were so focused on the book regarding the godforge and capturing the paragons that we never got around to asking about the "some other books" that were also missing.

-Morgan really should have/should ask Shade to allow him access to the recovered shard of the godforge so that Morgan can hopefully do his seer thing on it.

-Asking L'arabel about whether she remembers much about her time being dead (I think there are four of Val'erin's coins rolling around at this point, and only two have Morgan examined? Unless the one Brood has is the same one Leon had)

-Did we/were we actually going to do something with Hywel?

-We also apparently failed to look into Venturo, who was mentioned a couple times as suspicious, but that has kind of been resolved (exposed as Deimos)

And probably more besides, although some of it might have happened/been resolved in threads/Secret text I don't have access to.

Interesting Nevh still hasn't been made a hybrid.

I think Zilira was going to go through Hywel's mind, like she did with Nallaul. Otherwise Hywel is still imprisoned. I was more worried about Tris being released.

I suppose Hywel's capture at the end of chapter five and the entirety of chapter six occurred on the same day, so anything that happened to him would happen in the two week gap that hasn't been expounded on quite yet.

Is T'rissafay actually released as of now? The last I find mention of her is when Nall and Tel'shar are discussing his attempted (successfully technically, albeit briefly) assassination.

Side note. I've also done a quick look over the things Morgan would want to do in that two week period, and even with only needing two hours of sleep a night he needs some sort of "be in three places at once" spell. That's kind of been the story of his life from the end of Chapter 1 onwards.

It might still be impending, but I don't think the king can legally hold her. Unless.... Hywel was technically her slave? Maybe she could be held on slavery charges. Diplomatic immunity might also be in play.

So I read through the last half dozen pages of the OOC and now I feel like kind of an ass. As good as it would be to start the game up again, your mental health comes first, so do what you feel is right, and I hope you're still moving forward. Don't shut down. Remember, if you're going through hell, keep going.

That said. Holy crap, you do HEMA?!? Awesome! What club do you train with? How long have you been doing it? What weapon(s) do you train and if more than one, what's your favorite?

I've trained with Always thought the name was a little edge-lord, but the people are pretty awesomeBlood and Iron since early 2018. Sadly the chapter I went to was killed by Covid and all the **** surrounding it, and has closed their doors with no plans to reopen. Fortunately, BnI, and other clubs, offer live online training. It's not as good as in-person, but it's something to keep me going until things open up enough for me to start training with my peeps again.
I've trained mostly Meyer, as well as Capo Ferro, I.33, Roworth, Leckuchner, and a smattering of other stuff here and there. So weapons: Longsword, dussack, sabre, messer, sword and buckler, rapier (solo and with dagger). I used to say sabre was my favorite, but I think rapier has firmly supplanted it (I spent a moderately disgusting amount of money on a Castille rapier just before Canada went into lockdown). I never really much liked longsword despite it being the golden boy of HEMA, but I still train it some since I figure I should at least be competent with it.

Are you a fan of Scholagladiatoria or Skallagrim (YouTubers that are HEMA folks)? Skallagrim is the reason I even know that HEMA is a thing, and I actually used to train with the guy before he moved to the other side of the country.

For your Seis'kerta The Next Generation, my suggestion would be to use basic pathfinder plus the Mythic rules. I think the Mythic rules does a pretty good approximation of how you've presented the whole godling thing. Raising your mythic level would represent unlocking more godly power.

Wrote this while I pondered what Morgan might have been up to in the two week interlude between chapter 6 and 7. Good lord it's a pretty long list. I think I figured out who the unknown gods are too. The clues were all there, but I just didn't put them together.

It shouldn't be too hard, but can you guess who Morgan is talking to?

The maidensnatcher?

My theory on the new gods, is that they're time travellers from a bad future where Zera won. I've always strongly suspected that Sulion and her brother are Morgan's kids by Zilira.

Correct.

And are you talking about The Lady in the Light and Tinker? A lot of that stuff is not visible to me (private threads or secret text), but that is one possibility that occurred to me. A couple of things don't fit too well. Tinker's eyes are hazel (which Morgan's are as well) but all of Zilira's kids have grey eyes. Also thematically at least the Lady in the Light doesn't seem to have much in the way of parallels to either Zilira or Morgan.
Mine is that they came from alternate realities. There was a vision when Morgan touched Mask's fancy "I survived death and all I got was this stupid coin" coin that suggests that they came from destroyed realities. Different "threads" and realities is a subject that has come up a couple of times in the game, time travel hasn't. Shadow could be an alternate reality version of Aldamil for example.
I'll have to go look over that vision again.

OK, so I'm three pages into re-reading chapter seven, and yea, you're definitely right. I'm pretty sure Sublime is Vulcar's daughter.

Just remembered that Zilira chose to make the grey eyed thing inherited by her children with Vulcar the first, so it's not something she HAS to do, also she is able to sense people of her own bloodline, so if she meets Tinker and Lady she might be able to tell.

EDIT: I'm might edit a few more vignettes into post #3072
