SUMMER

Angkar: Wet season. Precipitation is common during the late afternoon and evening hours. Vegetation grows significantly during the summer, but flooding is a danger due to the monsoons that ravage the country. The rainforest sees evenly distributed rainfall throughout the season.

Ashoka: Desert: Extremely hot and dry. Violent, heavy downpours following long dryspells. Jungle: Hot and humid with frequent, violent rainstorms.

Morrim: Relatively hot and dry, but with a chance of thunderstorms from time to time. The heat may cause forest fires.

Soto: Hot and humid, tree cover is dense while ground growth is restricted. Thunderstorms see the most amount of rainfall during the season, and it can be very windy. On occasion, there are flash floods that can destroy homes and farms built on flood plains.

WHAT IS ELENLOND?

Elenlond is an original free-form medieval fantasy RPG set on the continent of Soare and the Scattered Isles, which are located to the south in the Sea of Diverging Waters. The four chief nations of the western side of the world—Ashoka in northern Soare, Soto in western Soare, Morrim in eastern Soare, and Angkar, the largest of the Scattered Isles—continue to experience growth and prosperity since the fall of the Mianorite gods, although power struggles within the countries—or outside of them—continue to ensue.

  • CURRENT EVENTS

    Angkar: To honour the reinvigoration of the ancient city of Mondrágon, the majestic Queen Eulalia has permitted the opening of a Coliseum where people from around the world and all walks of life can test their combat skills against one another. Many have already done battle in search of honour, glory, prizes and money.

    Ashoka: In an otherwise peaceful times, Ashokans are beset with the relatively minor inconveniences of wandering undead and occasionally-aggressive giant rock worms. There has also been some controversy over the recent re-legalisation of human sacrifice.

    Morrim: Rumour has it that Emperor Leofric de Hollemark is mustering forces for a war. Though the threat from Soto’s forests has passed, the forces previously employed in watching the forest now linger at the border. Rumours also circulate of a small group that has been dispatched to make contact with the tribes of the Do’suul Mountains.

    Soto: The Sotoans have defeated the fey and liberated themselves from Méadaigh’s oppression! Preliminary efforts have been made at rebuilding the city of Madrid, which had been captured at the beginning of the war. However, the Sotoans are hindered from recovery famine. Méadaigh’s magic caused summer to persist in the Erth’netora Forest through the winter. Her power has been withdrawn and the plants die as if preparing for winter – even though it is now summer. The Sotoans must sustain off what food they can get, what creatures they can kill and what can be imported into the city from Morrim and Angkar.

    Welcome to our home, a world in which anything can happen. From sprawling deserts and vast forests to massive volcanoes and luscious hot springs, Soare and the Scattered Isles are beautiful places just waiting to be explored. For the brave and the bold or the cautious and the wary, creatures of all kinds roam the earth, looking for adventure or for a place to call their own. Species of all kinds - the well-known and the unknown - thrive here, though not always in harmony.

    Elenlond is an original medieval fantasy RPG with a world that's as broad as it is unique. Calling on characters of all kinds, the sky's the limit in a world where boundaries are blurred and the imagination runs rampant. Restrictions are limited and members are encouraged to embrace their creativity, to see where they can go and what they can do. It's no longer just text on a page - it becomes real.

    Unter friedlichen Umständen fällt der kriegerische Mensch über sich selber her.

    A Burst of Sun
    Another season has rolled around and spring has given way to the mighty power of summer! The crickets sing at night, the grasshoppers flit up from the fields at the sound of your step, the moths beat in confusion around the lantern. In Morrim and Ashoka expect dryness and the beams of the sun beating upon your head; in Soto and Angkar expect air as wet as water and thunderstorms that thrash the treetops. All around the world, however, different people expect different things for themselves: some expect happiness, others suffering, some love and others desolation, some adventure, other contentment and others peril. What do you and your characters expect?

    Autumn Comes to Soto
    We do know one thing: the Sotoans expect their futures to be brighter now that the war is over. This thread marks the end of our long-running Soto plot, so if you haven’t joined it already and would like to, now is your time! Just so we can all move on with our individual character plots, I will have to spoiler it for you: Méadaigh loses the war. After that, Soto faces a long period of rebuilding, particularly in Soto. This effort is hindered by the fact that the plants are exhausted from their unnaturally extended growth period and have gone into dormancy. What does grow at this time grows in soil that has been sapped of its fertility and is the weaker for it. Until nature falls into its old cycles again, the Sotoans will continue to face hunger.

    Keep your eyes out for updated descriptions of the forum descriptions for Soto, which will reflect the changes to the landscape from the war.

    Staff Changes
    You may have noticed there are some new faces amongst the staff – please congratulate Qayin and Mel for ascending to the rank of moderator! We are sure they will be very helpful both to pre-existing staff and to the members. Meanwhile, we have let Neri retire so she can have a little more time to herself.

    OTMs
    There’s some more people for you to congratulate: Lilieth has won character of the month and Juul, Shiro and Gale have won an award for their collective efforts in An Untimely Frost!

    Current Events Submissios
    We’re working on another Town Crier, so if your character have been up to anything noteworthy (such as blowing up a town, creating a plague of frogs or causing big waves in fashion circles by covering themselves in live ants) or if you just have any ideas for recent events in any of the countries, please PM your submissions to Shrista!

    Summer Cleaning
    Following the completion of the Activity Check (see below), we'll be doing some general housecleaning. Any thread that has not received a reply since 2016 will be moved into the archives, along with any threads by members who are no longer active, and open threads that haven't received a reply in 60 days. If something gets archived mistakenly, or you need it removed from the archives, please contact a staff member to retrieve it. We're more than happy to help!

    Sometime after the Activity Check, we'll be launching the Elly Awards. Be sure to keep an eye out for remarkable threads, writing and characters so you'll be ready to nominate others for their hard work!

    Suggestions for YOUR Summer Cleaning
    Time marches inevitably forth and, because of that, things tend to get outdated. Thus I'd like to suggest to everyone to take a few minutes to adjust some things so they're more up to date. Have a look at your character profile just to make sure the age and other basic facts at the top of the profile are still accurate. If you change all these before the end of the Activity Check (see below), then you won't need to post in the "Profile Edits/Updates" thread like normal: these will be taken into account when the Compendium is re-done.

    Also, it might be a good idea to update your character's mini-profile. To do this, go to the top toolbar on the site, and go to Preferences > Edit Profile. Have a look at your signature: are all the threads listed there still active? Also, if you're feeling really ambitious, you might want to update your thread tracker.

    I'll be taking a leaf out of my own book and be doing this myself!

    Activity Check
    We do not require you to make xx number of IC posts—the exception to this being the players who have a Sovereign character; information can be found below for Sovereign characters. Please fill out the following form with your information, post here, and the staff will update the lists every few days, depending on how many responses we receive at a time.
    Code:
     
    [b]Player Alias[/b]:
    [b]Characters to KEEP[/b]:
    [b]Characters to ARCHIVE[/b]:
    [b]Characters to DELETE[/b]:


    This form should be filled out and posted in this topic. So, if I were to fill this out, it would look something like this:
    Quote:
     
    Player Alias: Ephie
    Characters to KEEP: Nevneni, Aniketos, Zeno, Kist, Kupselion, Chimaed
    Characters to ARCHIVE: N/A
    Characters to DELETE: N/A


    If the character name does not match the username, please give us the username (ex. Kestrel Sumner instead of Shadow).

    Please declare any NPCs as part of your characters to keep/archive/delete so that we know what to do with them. If you are not using your NPC accounts, you may wish to have them deleted.

    Since Sovereign characters are an integral part of the world in that they afford players a great deal of plotting opportunities, the Activity Check is slightly different for these characters. If a Sovereign character has not made at least 1 IC post in the past month, we require that their player makes at least 2 IC posts by the final day of the AC (see below); those posts will need to be linked in this topic or they will not count. If the player does not make these two posts, the Sovereign character will be demoted and the position opened up for someone else to take. Characters who are demoted will not be reinstated. If activity drops immediately after the AC, staff will contact the individual players. To recap:
    • If you have not made an IC post with your Sovereign in the last month (after April 31, 2017), you must make 2 IC posts by the end of this AC.
    • Either link here to your 1 IC post, or your 2 IC posts, depending on which category you fall under.
    • If you do not meet this requirement with your Sovereign character, your character risks being demoted.

    Absences will, as always, be considered. However, please note that lack of muse is not a valid absence, unless that lack of muse stems from sources such as work/family stress, illness, etc. If you have posted an absence and are posting with other characters, we will assume that you are well enough to post with your Sovereign, meaning that you are still responsible for fulfilling that part of the AC.

    If you have a posted absence, please link it here.

    The activity check will run from today, May 31, 2017 until June 21, 2017. Players that do not post here by the end date will have their accounts deleted if an account has less than 10 posts or archived if it has more than 10 posts. All inactive character profiles will be archived regardless of post count.

    Feel free to PM any staffer if you have questions!

    The activity check is

    CLOSED.


    Now that I have your attention, I have just two announcements to make!

    First, we have formulated some guidelines for our Skype and Discord chatrooms, which you should check out posthaste!

    Second is just a quick reminder to send in any Current Events submissions to Dnan on Shrista's account! This could include anything remarkable your character has done or just random ideas for goings-on in the world of Elenlond!
