Angiejuusan - Yes, there will be a listing of basic information of Pern with explanantion on things. I will slowly but surely expand the herbal/healers knowledge as well. So that you have some ideas of what you are working with. This will help you with playing a healer. Especially a 'Trauma' Specialist. As part of their course training is Surgery and anything related to sudden trauma injuries. INcluding Threadscore, even though they only have 'dummies' to work on.


Also so people are aware, Whers have a more special place in this game. I will be making sure an entire page gets handled for them, but there will be details. Whers impress to whoever feeds them, period. They also get a deeper bond to a person if there is blood involved, the bondeds blood. But all rules will be put there.

All dragon names end in th, all Whers end in sk. No human will ever be given a name that ends in either of those - it would be considered controversial and rude to the creatures who use that classification.

You will be allowed ONE firelizard at the start of the game, choose it wisely. I am thinking about using a random generator for this - jsut for the hell of it. By the way there are no white firelizards, just white dragons. Only Gold, Bronze, Brown, Blue, and Green Firelizards. Firelizards will also NOT recieve Mutations anytime in the near future.

I am thinking that randomization of what firelizard is recieved makes it easier and more fair. The only reason I snagged a Gold for Morrigan is becuase I am trying to make sure that I can handle most of the hatchings in the game - first and foremost - till I have taught others how Skies of Fire Hatchings will run.

:D I hope that is all information easy to handle?

I still remember the dumbest complaint I ever heard about Shadow of Mordor and the LOTR setting in general: "Why can't we have healing potions like Skyrim?"

When I saw that I just had to step back and just marvel at it for a moment.

Sweet and Chrystal, PM sent. Sorting out my thoughts on her took a bit more time than I thought it would! :D

I am already starting all the information that is for this game. I already got a decent amoutn done. I will TRY to have a section done a day - based on how much information that section needs. Tomorrow morning I will be working on the Craft Halls and their details. Basic information, and the Rules for creating characters within the craft.

*collapses* After Crafts I move to Holds in the Game and their basic details - locations - stuff like that. Basically each Hold tithes to a specific Weyr, based on the territory they are in. Tithes are how the Holds pay the Weyrs for protection and the 'policing' dragon riders do at the moment.

After Holds I move to Dragons. Where I will write out the details about dragons for THIS game, and link to the information that is for Normal Pern. I will also be including dragon statistics. 50% of Perns dragons are Greens, shocking right? I am putting in place that all greens are given firestone when they are a turn old. This is to prevent any possible clutching, because Greens rise four times a turn and we would be drowning in dragons...

I will also include impression guidelines for those dragons.

Rules for Candidates, Weyrlings, and Riders... >.< Hopefully that will help.

We will also have Game mandated Timeskips that happen at certain times. So I will try to give people enough warning so they can tie up their game scenes in a proper time period. Basically the opening of the game will be

Skies of Fire : Act One - or something like that. Where basic details willb e in the first post, links to all the threads... and then when that act is going to be finishing up I will give you like a three week warning, and then we will move to act two so on and so forth.


Caela - that is perfectly fine :D

If two characters are allowed, I may bring in Dean (with a name change) as a younger fellow. He's usually already an adult (and is typically Angelo's dad, but not always) but playing him as younger and as a Candidate would be fun...

As per rules I am setting up - we will be allowing 8 at most per person. This is because Pern is very character focused, and I am also making the posting size minimum 1-2 paragraphs per character. :D

And I will never hit the 8 character limit...

I figured 1-2 was a good base, because it makes it challenging for some players, but makes it where more advanced players can crank out posts for all their characters more easily.

Do not worry, I hit the max on my own - because I am trying to get a good base for the game going.

As a side note - roleplayer preferences are very important in this game.

So I may actually separate the characters based on who is playing them. Basically you turn in your profiles, we make a Wiki subsection tied to the Games Character section - where your name will be the link and then all your characters will have their own sublinks, but the main part of it will give basic deatils about you and what you do and do not RP in the game :D

Pern is a place it is very hard to limit yourself on. I would like at least a 2-1 ratio of gender, basically every 2 females means 1 male character? XD LOL I am always willing to help people with male character. I generally ask that becuase it makes it easier to keep the game more balanced and fair...

But if someone really only feels comfortable playing all males and all females... I will merely ask they play a varied amoutn of sexualities... IF they are comfortable with it.

Now that I think on it, Angelo as Dean's father this time around would be an entertaining reversal...

Sounds good to me! Just so you know sometime next week I will hopefully be making character profile skeletons and all that shite... depends on how my candle work goes.

I have to draw my stained glass designs, do the lining - wait 8 hours... color the glass - then wait a week for it to be cured... then make the candle bbase and set up the wics... XD

lol Sweet, that sounds fair...though as I said, males aren't my best but I am willing to experiment on you guys!

I did have one male character that I felt turned out really well in a former game. He was meant to be an NPC and around for only like one or two scenes and he just took on a whole life of his own in my head, hopefully that can happen again.

By the way guys, I will currently be pushing for more Green and Blue Riders - if you make a Dragon Rier now previously mentioned... XD AKA we have a couple browns, at least a bronze... and stuff... but we need blues and greens.... they are quite honestly more important to the game than other colors. Greens and Blues make up almost all of the populatio of dragons and as a result they are the largest part of the Threadfall force.

I am willing to throw in a couple more characters. I have another male in mind. An older male who will ride a blue. And a female to ride a green. I would like the female to have a firelizard. I do need to get more research done. But I can wait until you have all the info up. I am surprised at how much detail you are going into with this.

And did you say you have a few guys lined up? Angie I never knew you were a guy. But seriously, I have no idea who is who on this site!! The guys seem to be shying away from it. Or that just may be me thinking the ones with female names are females.

Ignore this old lady please... :o

I am actually making several male characters XD Is what I meant. I have four intended. But they are heteros aligned - because I am not comfortable roleplaying guy on guy in detail.

But yeah, you can wait till I get everything up :D And then work on it. Firelizard wise I am definitely pushing for more males than females, and trying to limit the golds but allow more rnge for the greens. As a note green firelizards are terrible fekking mothers and often abandon their clutches in weird places. In one game I was in a freen left her clutch in a store room pot... and they got eaten when boiling water was poured in... XD

I am laughing here, no what I meant was actual male writers joining the thread. I like the perspective of males and how they write when they are really good at it. I was just curious.

Finding males interested in Pern is like Impressing a Gold Dragon. Super rare, and super beautiful.

Hence why I like Angiejuusan so much XP
