Vega's Plots

Plot Notes
Hawt Cycle 721
From Last Cycle
This Cycle
  • Feast!
  • Daia's Lions
  • Build a boat!
  • Consequence : A big wayward hound has arrived at camp, which takes to chasing Rover around, harassing him relentlessly when he shows his face around the Beacon in the following summer. The dog doesn't appear to have an owner when asked around. But if Vega catches him, she'll find he has a collar with a tag that reads : Felix. The dog is a bloodhound, with a droopy and wrinkled, sad old face. But it wags its tail a lot when Rover is around. Yet, Rover seems terrified of the animal and swears it's going to bite him when it gives chase.
  • Consequences: The local smith in Faldrass, Rengel Lostand has offered to do business with Hopetoun, and sends word that he's willing to keep a copy of the diagrams of the machine pieces that are needed for maintenance. In return for the steady business that is sent his way, he'll offer a small discount on nails and construction tools to the Hopetounians. Please submit this to the Hopetoun tracker.
  • Consequences: A supply line is set up with cadouri runners, with planned exchange of special ingredients (Spices and such) for finished jams.
  • Consequences: Mavis and Reggie will ask Vega to be her child's Godmother at some point, when they've settled down on the idea that they are having a child together. Sometime in Ymiden they will approach her with the proposal.
  • Consequences: Wealth Points: When writing up the business plan for Nella's Kitchen, add 5% of WP cost to the business set up.
  • Consequences: A Honey Badger Cadouri comes to Vega, and tries to get her to teach him how to be tough and fight. He won't take no for an answer. He doesn't care.
  • Consequences: A ranger's outpost will be set up in mid Ymiden. Since Elise is the ranking Ranger on Faldrass, she will be it's chief. Feel free to make a proper dev entry for her, to ensure that she gets permanent seating on the NPC roster, same for Refed, who is due for a promotion for his work here as well. Elise is now a Veteran Ranger, and Refed is a full Ranger in rank by mid Ymiden. Also, please do write-up the Ranger Outpost, such as it will be on the Dev forum. Thanks!
  • Consequences: The push to preserve and store the new-found surplus will create a run on resources needed to do so, such as salt and containers of glass and clay. The Hopetounsfolk will need to find an ingenious solution to the sudden crunch!

Vega's skin has a reflective metallic sheen with a red glow. Her eyes still swirl biqaj colours, but one colour is always bright red which glows like fire. She has a bright red glow in her chest, situated directly under the mark of a heart (Daia mark) in the middle of a glowing silver dragon on her chest (Xiur). She's unnaturally warm to the touch

√ Yellow dragon wood (we have)


Hire on the workers and master craftsmen needed to work the materials to the level that is needed.- By whatever means are available to you, but Xiur will be watching.
√ Letter to Darius
√ Letter to Saoire

Build the beacon - determine the size, shape, height, material, etc. Will it be constructed or grown.

  • Arrows x 40 (paid 1gn in ledger)
  • Longsword Enchantment Permanent Enchantment Vega's intricate rose scar has transferred to the hilt of her longsword. As such, she can activate the Molten enchantment within her sword by mentally focusing on it. This Enchantment allows her to burn through anything that would normally be burned by magma/lava, while maintaining the strength, edge, and edge of her blade. In addition to this, Vega's use of this ability has burned away impurities in Vega's blade, so that it is sharper and stronger while in either form. All previous abilities of the Death Forged Rose are lost and replaced by this. here
  • Image
    Melody:
    A masterwork sea blue crystal sword forged from the body of Perfection. This sword is nearly as hard as Adamantite and slices just as cleanly. On the flat of the sword several words will appear when the blade is held in the right light that only Vega can see. The words are: "May You Never Break".

    Melodic Ballad:Melody is unique as it 'sings' when the blade in swung creating a bright resonate tone that sounds similar to the sharp peal of an echoing bell. The sound is not loud enough to startle anyone but it can be heard even amid the din of an ongoing battle. The Melodic Ballad creates an aura around the wielder roughly twenty feet in diameter that will cause enemies to be put on edge and be innately intimidated by the wielder. Enemies will be more likely to flee, especially if they do not possess at least Competency in Discipline. Something about Melody's sharp piercing voice; although beautiful seems to unnerve opponents, while leaving allies completely alone. This effect is dependent on Vega's opinions of the people around her. [NOTE: This effect is strengthened slightly and it's radius of effect increased by ten feet when in use alongside the sword Harmony


    March to Arms: Vega will find over time that, after using the sword for several trials [20 trials] that Melody will return to her hand if she focuses enough on the sword, the blade with resonate with it's telltale song before flying into her grasp, as if borne on an invisible wind. This effect can only be achieved if the sword is within her line of sight. This ability cannot be used to harm others as Melody will always move around obstacles before returning to it's master's hand.

Chuckles' Core Fire Entity Core If the Core of Chuckles is placed in a source of fire or heat for a full season, Chuckles will become Vega's companion. He has a desire to travel, to see the "fires of the world" which he will bring up constantly. He dislikes water and cold. He is also especially sarcastic toward anyone that isn't Vega or a Fire Defier. He is only kind to others if they are actively working with fire in a kind way. If his elemental body is damaged, he will revert to his core. If his core is damaged, it will explode and he is dead. here
Hopes Fiddle: Approved here
The fiddle itself is, as it seems to be, an antique and beautifully crafted instrument with a lot of history. When played by one of Xiur's blessed, however, it provokes one of three emotional responses in all those who hear it. The response is directly linked to the kind of music Vega is playing and the emotion will be the one she is trying to instil. For all three, this imparts a feeling, does not determine anyone's actions but provides a "nudge", nothing more. The responses Vega is able to provoke when she plays this fiddle are:
a) Hopefulness: with upbeat and cheery music, those who hear the fiddle being played will have a boost to their resolve and feeling of optimism - Vega can not make them feel optimistic that X or Y will happen but can instill a general feeling of being more up beat.
b) Peace and calm: with gentle and slow music, those who hear the fiddle being played will feel calmer, less inclined to violence or anger. Again, a general feeling, not one that she can target as feeling peaceful towards X.
c) Entranced: with a haunting melody, those who hear the fiddle will be focused on the music, pulled in to the emotion of it and will feel the urge to focus on that.
Vega can use this ability once a trial and so long as she keeps playing, the ability will work for up to an hour. However, she has to be playing, it has to be heard etc.

Mirror of Perfections: On their way out of the cavern Vega found one of the mirrors at the bottom of the lake. It is a golden hand-mirror that seems to constantly show the onlooker the best possible version of themselves. Some would consider this an artist's tool as it will always show a perfected version of the world reflected in it. Those that look into the mirror always report feeling a swell in self confidence. Found here

Mistral Reward: You have been given 200gn for returning the children to Mistral Village from the grateful parents. (in ledger)

Crystal Pendant: Within the dusty remains of Perfection's crystal you find a beautiful crystal necklace on a golden chain. There is a perfectly faceted diamond shaped crystal as the pendant.The crystal constantly shifts between hues of gold, crimson and orange while occasionally becoming colorless. The colors seems to have something to do with your current emotional state, similar to how Biqaj eyes work. Though the pendant glows especially bright when Vega is angry, as if feeding off the fire within her. Found here

A very old coin. Proof that it was a treasure map, no matter what Arlo says! here

Vega's skin has a reflective metallic sheen with a red glow. Her eyes still swirl biqaj colours, but one colour is always bright red which glows like fire. She has a bright red glow in her chest, situated directly under the mark of a heart (Daia mark) in the middle of a glowing silver dragon on her chest (Xiur). She's unnaturally warm to the touch

Re: Vega's Plots

Original
Thunder Priestesses
Image
The Thunder Priestesses are one of the three most powerful factions in the city of Rharne. This women-only faction was created by Ilaren’s first female Champion during the 280th arc to unite the Immortal’s supporters. Their overarching directive is to govern religion in Rharne, gather intelligence across Idalos, and advance Ilaren’s goals in the Immortals War. There are between 1500-1600 active Priestesses spread throughout Idalos at any one time, with about 600-700 of those living in Rharne.

Within Rharne, the Thunder Priestesses are viewed as Ilaren’s eyes and ears. It is rumoured that they see all and know all through their network of sisters spread across the many regions of Idalos, and many Rharnians see them as the city’s champions and protectors. If the Lightning Knights are the city’s sword, then the Thunder Priestesses are the city’s shield.

The sisterhood is split into four branches, each with its own specialization. The Clerics oversee religion, the Healers provide medical aid to their sisters and the city, the Emissaries act as ambassadors for Rharne, and the Warriors act as Ilaren’s personal agents. While the Priestesses in each branch have varying skillsets, the faction is widely known for its prowess in Unarmed Combat, regardless of specialization. All sisters are taught defensive combat skills in order to protect themselves and each other should the need arise.

A Thunder Priestess can usually be recognized by her attire. Novitiates wear white robes, while Priestesses and above wear dark purple robes. Inside the Lightning Cathedral, the robes are always worn unless one is visiting or leaving. Outside the Lightning Cathedral, the robes are sometimes traded in for more practical clothing. Emissaries often choose to wear attire that aligns with the city they are visiting, whereas Warriors tend to dress in leather armour and gear.

The Oath: Upon joining the Thunder Priestesses, a new member must swear an oath of allegiance to Ilaren and the sisterhood, in which she promises to place the mission and goals of the faction above her own self-interest. After the oath is sworn, the new member is required to complete the ritual with a shot of whiskey.

The oath is repeated as follows:

“I pledge an oath of loyalty to Ilaren and the Thunder Priestesses.

I swear to place the interests of my sisters above myself, to serve Ilaren with integrity, and to show bravery in times of fear. I further swear to faithfully support, protect, and defend my sisterhood and the citizens of Rharne against those that wish us harm.

May I always find courage in myself, strength in my sisters, and faith in Ilaren.”


Priestesses are allowed to marry, though this is discouraged since a partnership and/or family is considered a distraction from the faction’s directive.
Requirements
For Joining:
  • Your character must identify as female and be at least 16 arcs old
  • Your character is required to join the faction as a Novitiate, unless special permission is granted by a Prophet to begin as a Priestess. No character may begin as a High Priestess, Head Priestess, or Matriarch.
  • Your character must not be marked by any of Ilaren’s enemies, specifically Faldrun, Chrien, and Edasha.
  • Your character must swear an oath of allegiance to Ilaren and the sisterhood, in which she promises to place the mission and goals of the faction above her own self-interest.
For Remaining an Active Member:
  • One job thread per season detailing your character’s work as a Thunder Priestess
  • One additional job thread per season if your character has chosen to reside within the Lightning Cathedral
Benefits
1. All Priestesses earn Fame for their membership in the sisterhood. Novitiates earn +2 Fame, Priestesses earn +5 Fame, High Priestesses earn +8 Fame, Head Priestesses earn +10 Fame, and the Matriarch earns +15 Fame. Fame is stacked (ie.if a character starts as a Novitiate and gets promoted through the ranks to Matriarch, they have the potential to earn a total of +40 Fame points).

2. Faction-sponsored travel is free, though personal expenses must be paid for by each character.

3. Sisters have access to a world-wide network of Priestesses and safe houses.

4. The Lightning Knights are closely allied with the Thunder Priestesses. Each Priestess (L2 and higher) is usually paired with a Lightning Knight for protection, though the Knights tend to go above and beyond their role as bodyguard and frequently become one of their most trusted partners.

5. Each character is awarded the following knowledge upon joining the Thunder Priestesses: “Faction: Thunder Priestesses,” “Thunder Priestesses: The Oath,” and “Immortal: Ilaren”. For newly-made characters, these are in addition to the 5 pieces of starting knowledge.

6. All sisters are given access to free Unarmed Combat lessons (held every morning at the Lightning Cathedral), as well as any training that aligns with their chosen branch.

7. Characters may choose to take up residence within the South Wing of the Lightning Cathedral. Living within the Cathedral is free, though players must write a second job thread detailing their PC’s work as a Thunder Priestess. Novitiates share a windowed, semi-private room with one other Novitiate. Semi-private rooms are 400 square feet and contain two beds, two desks, two chairs, two chests, and a fireplace. Priestesses and High Priestesses have their own 300 square foot private room with a window. Each private room comes with one bed, two chairs, one desk, one chest, and a fireplace. Head Priestesses and the Matriarch reside in 600 square foot rooms. The bathing chambers, kitchens, and dining areas are all public.
Branches
Image
Four distinct branches lie beneath the Thunder Priestess banner, each with its own specialization and mission. The Clerics govern religion, the Healers provide medical aid to their sisters and the city, the Emissaries act as ambassadors for Rharne, and the Warriors act as Ilaren’s personal agents in the Immortals War.

Once a Novitiate completes their training, serves at least one season within the sisterhood, and meets the minimum skill/knowledge requirements to advance, she may select one of the four branches to join and is promoted to the role of Priestess. This choice is usually made by each Novitiate depending on their individual skillsets and interests. On occasion, however, Novitiates may find themselves directed to join a specific branch based on the faction’s needs. Priestesses rarely change branches once a choice is made, but making a change is not unheard of.

1. Clerics: The Cleric branch governs religion across Rharne and is the first point of contact for Ilaren’s worshippers. Theses Priestesses are the caretakers for the Lightning Cathedral and the face of the faction at all public events in Rharne. They often volunteer their time to support the city in good works projects. Since the Clerics’ ultimate mission is to spread word of Ilaren and increase her mortal followers, they also send out missionaries to cities across Idalos.

2. Healers: The Healer branch provides medical aid to their sisters, to the city of Rharne, and to allied cities across Idalos. Healers, like all Priestesses, are well-versed in Unarmed Combat, but they tend to be defensively-focused. While many of these healers are also members of the Order of Adunih, their primary loyalty is to Ilaren and the Thunder Priestesses. They sometimes support the Emissary branch as ambassadors or the Cleric branch as missionaries, and may travel to disaster-stricken or war-torn regions in order to provide their aid.

3. Emissaries: The Emissary branch acts as ambassadors for Rharne. These Priestesses are often spread throughout Idalos and are tasked with strengthening ties with Rharne’s allies, keeping up-to-date on any changes in global politics, and gathering intelligence on other cities, factions, and events that could potentially impact Ilaren and Rharne.

4. Warriors: The Warrior branch is the most secretive of the four branches, and their existence is not widely known outside of the Thunder Priestesses and the Lightning Knights. Warriors act as Ilaren’s spies and agents, and they are frequently sent on missions with the specific intent of advancing Ilaren’s interests in the Immortals’ War.
Rankings
Level 1: Novitiate (Daughter)
Novitiate is the first rank within the Thunder Priestess faction. The newly initiated Novitiate wears white robes to denote her status. She is expected to attend training in the form of classes and tutoring in order to learn about the sisterhood’s goals and branches, as well as the skills needed to advance. She is also expected to complete daily chores within the Lightning Cathedral so as to help with its upkeep and test her devotion.

Each Novitiate is assigned a Priestess as her mentor, who guides her through her daily activities and is available to answer any questions that may arise. The Novitiate’s mentor often helps her select a branch that best aligns with her skills and attends her graduation ceremony. Many Priestesses continue to interact with their mentors even after they’ve been promoted from the Novitiate rank.

Once a Novitiate completes their training, serves at least one season within the sisterhood, and meets the minimum skill/knowledge requirements to advance, she may select one of the four branches to join and is promoted the role of Priestess. This choice is usually made by each Novitiate depending on their individual skillsets and interests. On occasion, however, Novitiates may find themselves directed to join a specific branch based on the faction’s needs.

A ceremony is held to commemorate each Novitiate’s graduation. Here, the Novitiate trades in her white robes for robes in a dark purple shade and completes a short ritual. The ceremony is open to anyone in the faction, but, at very least, her mentor and a Head Priestess representing her chosen branch will be in attendance. The graduation ritual varies depending on the branch:
  • Clerics light a candle to signify that they will lead Ilaren’s followers through the darkness.
  • Healers re-pot a small plant to symbolize renewal and continued growth.
  • Emissaries write the Oath on a piece of parchment before burning the paper to ash. The action symbolizes their loyalty to Ilaren, as well as the ever-changing nature and relevance of knowledge.
  • Warriors cut a thin line into the palm of their non-dominant hand with a dagger to symbolize their willingness to bleed for Ilaren’s cause.
After the ritual, the Head Priestess pronounces the Novitiate an official Priestess and may introduce her to the Lightning Knight Liaison who she will be partnered with. The pair each throw back a shot of whiskey and, with that, the graduation ceremony is complete.

Skill Requirements: N/A
Mark Requirements: N/A

Level 2: Priestess (Sister)
A Priestess acts as a representative for her branch, and she wears a silver chain-linked bracelet as a reminder of the connection between herself and her sisters. Her trials consist of improving her skills, mentoring Novitiates, and accepting low- to medium-profile assignments. She will often be assigned a Lightning Knight as a guard, and so some of her time is also spent building trust with their partner.

Priestesses are given assignments from the High Priestesses and Head Priestesses, and are expected to accept their orders without argument. Depending on the branch and the assignment, they may find themselves asked to travel to other cities. Though they are given as much advance warning as possible, they must always be prepared to leave Rharne should the need arise.

Level 3: High Priestess (Sister)
In order to advance from Priestess to High Priestess, a sister must have Ilaren’s trust and are sometimes asked to complete a test of loyalty. All High Priestesses are given Palenon’s blessing, and must show a high level of competence in the skills required by their branch. Much like a Priestess, a High Priestess acts as a representative for her branch and spends her time improving her skills, giving assignments to Priestesses, and accepting medium- to high-profile assignments. High Priestesses wear two silver chain-linked bracelets to represent the increase in responsibility that they have accepted.

Mark Requirements: Mark of Palenon (Favored or higher)

Level 4: Head Priestess (Sister)
The Head Priestesses lead each of the four branches. There is one Head Priestess per branch, and each wears a gold chain-linked bracelet to symbolize her leadership over her branch. The Head Priestess’ role is to organize missions for her specific branch, to resolve conflicts between sisters, to oversee the recruitment and training of Novitiates and Priestesses, and to communicate key information. Each Head Priestess is also expected to liaison with the other three Head Priestesses, the Matriarch, and Ilaren in order to understand the current and future state of the sisterhood and Rharne.

To become a Head Priestess, a Sister must meet the skill and mark requirements and be voted into the role. When a Head Priestess position opens up, any High Priestess within the branch may be nominated or self-nominated to run for the position. Branches typically groom 2-3 High Priestesses to take over the role of Head Priestess should the opportunity present itself, but even those who have not been groomed for the role may be nominated as long as they meet the selection criteria.

Each nominee must have at least two Sisters who second the nomination, as well as the approval of the Matriarch. All of the Priestesses and High Priestesses in the branch will then participate in a ballot vote. The Sister with the most votes will become Head Priestess of the branch unless, in extremely rare circumstances, the Matriarch overrules the selection.

  • Intelligence or Investigation (Master)

Mark Requirements: Mark of Palenon (Adored or higher)

Level 5: Matriarch (Mother)
There is only ever one Matriarch at a time. She governs all four branches, and represents the Thunder Priestess faction as one of the four mortal members on Rharne’s Council. Her role is to lead the Thunder Priestesses, to set the tone and vision for the faction, and to work directly with Ilaren to help achieve the Immortals’ goals. She has the final say in all matters related to the faction, and her authority is exceeded only by Ilaren herself.

The Matriarch wears a gold necklace with a lightning bolt charm, along with four gold chain-linked bracelets to symbolize her leadership over all of the faction’s branches. She is selected by Ilaren from the small group of Head Priestesses who lead each of the four branches and remains in her role until she either retires due to age, passes away, or, in extraordinary circumstances, is removed from her post by Ilaren.

Skill Requirements:
  • Leadership (Master)
Mark Requirements: Mark of Palenon (Exalted)
Key Locations
Lightning Cathedral: The Lightning Cathedral is the Thunder Priestess’ headquarters. It is located at the very top of the city of Rharne, and is often a point of focus for visitors due to its immense size and beauty. The Cathedral houses a variety of public, private, and secret locations, and even sisters who have been part of the faction for several arcs don’t know all it contains.

Sisters often choose to live within the Cathedral during their time in Rharne due to its convenience, as all education, training, and meetings take place here. The Immortal Ilaren also resides within the Cathedral when she is in the city, which adds to the location’s allure.

The Cathedral is broken up into wings. The North Wing contains the training grounds and classrooms, while the South Wing contains all residential quarters (including Ilaren’s) and living amenities. The East Wing contains a large number of meeting rooms for both public and private events, as well as a public space for meditation and prayer, and the West Wing hosts the command centers for the Matriarch and each of the four branches. In the center of the Cathedral is the faction’s ever-expanding library, which leads outside into a circular courtyard and garden.

Safe Houses: The Thunder Priestesses have safe houses scattered across Idalos in each region where their members work. The location of these safe houses is known only to Ilaren, the Matriarch, the Head Priestesses, and those who may have a need for them (primarily the sisters belonging to the Emissary or Warrior branches). Occasionally, in dire situations, a Lightning Knight may be allowed knowledge of or access to one of these safe houses - though they will find that the house’s location swiftly changes soon after the Knight’s need for it disappears.

Every safe house appears non-descript to outsiders, and is often so common-looking that even those living nearby may forget its existence. There never any markings or indicators of the house’s connection to the Thunder Priestesses, save for its caretaker. Each house has a caretaker - a Priestess in the region - who ensures it remains livable. She may or may not reside in the home herself. Caretakers are chosen based on their combat and medical skills, their ability to be discrete, and their capacity for withstanding interrogation and/or torture.
