    (single target) "Qitorien twirls and spins with surprising complexity, long ribbons in each hand. The silk and elegant movements center around [target1], appearing discordant somehow with just one person."
    (two targets) "Qitorien twirls and spins with surprising complexity, long ribbons in each hand. Centering around [target1] and [target2] the silk and elegant movements weave a unbreakable tale of love, binding the happy couple within the Argisan."

    (target) “With somber gravity and respect, Qitorien places each hand over an eye, left and right, fixing his deatheye on [target/"you"], as if he perceives [target/"your"] future death amongst other shadows of the dead present.”

    Awesome! And thanks for the quick response. This is going to rock.

    Another quick question (I think the answer will be no, but its worth a shot). 

    Will recording devices be available? 

    An issue that arose within Achaea, was when some Gods decided it was OOC to post live event 'logs' to city/org/public news boards.

    Although this made sense IC (and I fully understand the decision), it removed a platform for creatives to mass-share our work over. Also, because posting logs was considered OOC, many great works were lost as they couldn't be recorded for posterity.

    These live events are a cornerstone of the cultural identity building process, especially in the early life of an organisation. From what I saw happen in Achaea over the years, there's a snowballing effect, with creators bouncing off one another and carving out cultural elbow-room. Removing a public platform for them to share over, somewhat diminishes this process of cultural evolution/definition, as it makes it harder for ideas to circulate amongst the group imagination.

    Will posting live event logs be considered OOC or IC? And as Starmourn is powered by advanced technology, will there be a way to 'record' (i.e. take an IC log of) an event, and then mass-distribute it across the stars (i.e. post it somewhere IC that target audiences can read it)?

    Thanks for all the hard work you and the team are putting into this, it really looks like you're creating something ground-breaking. 

    We had similar issues in Midkemia. I understand as well. What we ended up doing often is recording it and then editing it to make sense in the context and without OOC identifiers, etc, before posting/"writing" it somewhere.

    By ‘Arts’ I mean: Can you create (i.e. write) within Starmourn? When I say create, I refer to things like, but not restricted exclusively to, the creation of paintings, and the creation of musical, theatrical or ritual performances with the EMO command?

    By ‘Academia’ I mean: Will you be able to RP a ‘scholar’ character, and publish academic literature/research like in Achaea’s journals and library system?

    I began playing Achaea in 1998 and continued to play it heavily for a decade afterwards, then on and off for another five years after that. The ability to be creative within Achaea’s communal and fully realised RP environment was what drew me back again and again.

    I know many players look down on this sort of game playing style, but this was the key reason I played Achaea for so long. I’m a writer first and a gamer second, basically 😊
    We've got lots of tools to support these aspects of gameplay. You'll find that our "arts" system on-par with Achaea and our other Iron Realms games, including comprehensive emoting options, through to custom item creation tradeskills, and many more!

    Books though, they are so last millennium! We use datashards for storing written works, which you can share with others for limited or indefinite amounts of time, and cities will have the option to have a central datastore where they can collect datashards for membership viewing.


    YES PLS K THX
    um, I mean. I’m really looking forward to all of this! 😊
