How to use The Altar

The Altar




Thematic Music

Before you is the altar room at Eternity's End said to be a direct conduit of worship to the mysterious "Outer Deities of the Beyond".
Over the door is the inscription "Et vitam impendere vero".

It is said that those heroes that are relentless in their pursuits and offer up a sacrifice to the voidfire pit are awarded knowledge and karmic retribution from the beyond.


The current Atlar monitor is William Imm

Purpose:

The Altar is designed to lightly reward players for regular activity at Eternity's End.

Claiming Awards:

To claim an alter reward you must post All in character posts apply to include the pub, adventures, the arena and all other IC postsin character 7/7 days in a given week starting on 12:01 am Monday through 12:00 pm on Sunday, OR, you can also qualify for a larger bonus by posting every day of a given month (same time restrictions). Special Holiday bonuses will also apply.

If you are in a time zone other than EST and that will affect your qualifications, please note that in your submission.

If you were unable to post IC due to in game restrictions, include any applicable check-in posts, that were added to the Guestbook. Be sure to use standard posting format for your character. For more details read checking in, below.

You must link each post to qualify you for the bonus, only 1 per day is required. To determine your post's link, please right click the post number and select "copy link adress". Paste all of the links in appropriate order in this thread. It is helpful to label them as Mon, Tues, etc.

If you qualify for a full monthly bonus, compile all weeks of a given month acceptance posts from your private thread. Add in any rouge days from the beginning or end of the month. Compile these links and post them to receive your monthly reward.

IC post: You are not required to, but for the purposes of RP your character can indulge in a "sacrifice" at the alter which can be anything you decide though it should have some personal significance to the character (a drop of blood, a strand of hair, an enemy ear, whatever suits you). In story terms, if your dedication proves true (you posted as per requirements) your sacrifice will be accepted and you will be rewarded with appropriate XP and WBL rewards.


The Rewards

To claim your reward (weekly or monthly) you must post in this thread within 3 days of qualifying for it.

If at any point the RPGCrossing site goes down site wide for more than 1 hour in a 24 hour period you will be given a pass for the altar for that particular 24 hour period. Loss of internet connection on your end does NOT constitute a pass. While we sympathize with various factors beyond anyone's control such as weather and the like, we cannot reasonably account for it.

For the sake of simplicity you do NOT need to be at the inn to claim your bonus, though it is assumed this occurs at the next available chance your character has at the Inn. The bonus, however, is immediately added to your character.

If you qualify for a 7/7 weekly reward you will be given 1% of the total required experience and WBL to reach your next level.

If you qualify for a full month of posting you must compile all posts, from the previous weeks that you have claimed in this thread as well as any straggler days from partial weeks for the month. If qualified for you will recieve a bonus 2% on top of your weekly bonuses for the month!

Leveling from this bonus cannot occur for your character if you are in an adventure until your GM allows for a rest point that qualifies for leveling. In most cases this will occur at the end of the adventure.

If you ever qualify for a special Eternity's End token bonus it is delivered via Jammayich, a crazy golden imp that sometimes tokens in various places (in this case, somewhere in the PC's Private Chambers.


Jammayich

GM PCs may ONLY qualify if they A) have met all posting requirements for their own games at Eternity's End, and B) Have completed all other responsibilities that they have elected to perform (as noted in the assignment thread in the GM Suite) at Eternity's End.

For GM use:
 


Checking In

If a character is capable of posting IC and it is reasonable for them to post, then they should do so. However, players may not be able to post due to any of the following reasons:

1) Waiting on the GM to post a reply (such as to a question) before taking a vital action.

2) Waiting on player to post, before taking a vital action.

3) It is during combat, and it's not your turn to act.

There are even more circumstances than the above, but the rule of thumb, when in doubt, post IC.

If you're worried that the GM will disagree with your decision, toss a note up in the guestbook and game ooc as to why you feel the game is being held up, so they know why you think there is a hold up.

DO NOT check in when the party is waiting on an IC response from your character, this automatically disqualifies you from the bonus. An established pattern of this behavior may be construed as cheating and result in a ban. Similarly, be sure to link your posts appropriately. Linking unqualifying posts will be asked to clarify your link to an appropriate one. There is no excuse for linking improper posts and being unable to link an appropriate one when prompted or to sign in the guestbook when others are clearly waiting on a response for you (ie being grossly prompted). You are aware if you met the appropriate posting rate to meet a bonus for the week, feigning ignorance is not an option. The first time either circumstance occurs the PC becomes disqualified from receiving Altar bonuses for 1 month. The second time the Player is banned from the game.

See Room 13 for details.

Holiday Bonuses

If you post IC (if at all possible, if not an OOC is accepted) on the day before, of, or after during Nov 24 and Dec 25 and Jan 1 you gain an in-game bonus of a +1 bonus to any 1d20 die roll*. This bonus expires in 90 days from when it is awarded and must be claimed in the usual methods listed above.

*this bonus follows standard rules for bonuses (they don't stack with each other short of use of a hero point). This bonus must be declared at the time of the roll and not retroactively.

If you earn all three of those you also are awarded (when you claim your third bonus, indicate you have all three) a special bonus of an Eternity's End token.


EE TokenThe token operates exactly like a potion of cure moderate wounds and operates at a CL equal to the level of the owner, it may be used as a swift action, and only used by the owner. After being used, the coin remains but is powerless and cannot be recharged. It is of negligible value but you are free to keep it as a collectible, trade it, or otherwise use it for RP purposes. It is a unique artifact and cannot be destroyed by normal means.

To award this token, post the picture below and award the token in the private thread of the awarded character as well as all rules listed in this fieldset. "EE Token" must then be added to the character inventory.

To use this token the PC must link the post in their private thread concerning the token. The GM must then change the character sheet to read "Expired EE token" and write in bold: THIS ITEM IS EXPENDED on the top of the post of private thread concerning the item to ensure the item is not used again.




Again, if you qualify for accumulated bonuses such as posting for all three holiday season bonuses and/or posting for every given day in a month, and expect your accumulated bonuses to be honored, YOU MUST INDICATE you are qualified with linked posts for these bonuses, you need only link the GM post stating your posts were honored which can be found in your private thread or in the altar thread. Either one will do.

It is a large effort to keep up with the weekly altar bonuses. Researching your previous bonuses is not something the staff can realistically do, so please be mindful to include these links to receive your appropriate accumulated bonuses.

Flacari Avant

Flacari enters the room, looking around at the alter. When she was first explained the use of the room, she figured it would be a good place to honor Chimon, the Kami who raised her, and taught her, until his death. Flacari found an unlit votive candle in an alcove, and brought it before the alter. She lit the candle using one of the sconces as a source of fire. She then plucked out seven hairs and offered them to the fire in the candle. Once her hairs had finished burning, she turned the candle upside down quickly. The lack of air quickly extinguished the fire, but the wax that had previously liquefied had started to form a small pool below it. Once done, she quickly exit the room.

Vargas Yscar

Vargas kneels before the altar, unsure of exactly what he should say or do, but certain that out there, some where, something was looking over him, as it had been when he escaped from the fae realm and he was, and remains, thankful to it.

Quirk Idiosynchratis

Being well versed in the act of worship Quori steps up to the altar. Believing himself to be divine, he pricks his finger and allows a drop of blood to fall onto the altar. His offering is what he believes is the biggest sacrifice he can make.

Flacari Avant

Flacari wandered the halls of the inn, looking around for whatever it was that would come to her. She remembered other paths she had taken before, and made sure to avoid them at all costs. It wasn't until she was here that she realized that something was amiss. She knew she had purposefully walked in the opposite direction of this place, yet here she was.

Since she was here she walked over to where she had previously placed the candle, except this time it seemed to be right side up and lit.she decided to repeat the process from before and upended the candle, extinguishing the flames, and allowing some of the wax to run away as it saw fit.

Flacari then turned away and left the room.

Flacari Avant

Flacari enters the room, with two mugs in hand. Her father... or at least the demon whom she associates as being her father, always loved kumquats. She walks over the the sight of the candle she had played with previously. Again it was upright, and lit. as before, she upended the candle, snuffing it's flame, and spilling some wax. This time she takes a sip from one of her mugs, and upends the other one onto the aforementioned candle.
