Re: Xiur's Champion: For Vega and Friends.

Thread/Link: The Point of Hope
Condition Satisfied: HIre the Workers. Build the Beacon
Potential Complications: I don't think so.
Summary:
This thread is the "crafting the beacon" thread focusing on Rover (Business Management Master, Expert Logistics). Also - the NPC suggests we need more metal and Vega sends "the boys" up to the smith on Faldrass. He gives a letter to Vega to try and cut some kind of deal with the smith. I will thread that if it's something Darius wants (will check with him) long term.

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: Xiur's Champion: For Vega and Friends.

Thread/Link: Size Doesn't Matter
Condition Satisfied: HIre the Workers. Build the Beacon
Potential Complications: I don't believe so.
Summary:
This thread is the "crafting the beacon" thread focusing on Herman (Construction, Engineering, Physics, Design).
The following things happen.

1. Vega and Herman discuss a "dumb waiter" affair for the beacon which hangs underneath the spiral stairs and will transport goods. It will also improve structural integrity etc and allow them to have ovens in Nella's Kitchen.

2. Vega and Herman go and see the road which is being built - Vega suggests using bags of sand underneath to keep it warm in winter, cool in summer (like the resort used to) - Rover (who's leading it) agreed and gets Vega and others to make bags for the sand.

3. While she's making the bags, she talks to Herman - asks him if he'll make designs for the following buildings:
- An Inn
- A Community Centre / Meeting Hall.
- Houses
- Mills (Water and Wind)
- A Barracks - training area
- A cool storage for meat
- Clever storage solutions.

We won't assume anything until it's reviewed, of course.

 ! Message from: Pig Boy
The Road is constructed and it appears to work just fine, although it will need some maintenance during the colder seasons.

The dumb waiter will work as described, lending structural integrity to the stairs up.

You can assume success at convincing them to start the other projects as described here.

Re: Xiur's Champion: For Vega and Friends.

Thread/Link: Forging Ahead
Condition Satisfied: HIre the Workers. Build the Beacon
Potential Complications: I don't believe so.
Summary:
This thread is the "crafting the beacon" thread focusing on Reggie (Smithing)
The following things happen.

1. Vega and Reggie use the portable furnaces Vega has in her crafting kits for heat.

2. Reggie talks Vega through what he's already done - shows her the pulley system for the "dumb waiter" and the understide of the stairs frame which is going to stabalise / strengthen the structure.

3. He shows her the ovens he's making and the metal rings for on the top of them.

4. They discuss how those rings could be used and between them come up with an idea for a "simmer pot" - a metal box with an indentation in the middle which holds a pot. Bottom of the indentation are three warm metal rings, the indentation is made by a sleeve which is surrounded by orange sand - so the rings and the pot are kept warm, but not over-hot.

5. Reggie agrees to make a few of the ovens and ring-tops for Hopetoun (not just Nella's Kitchen) as well as a few of the "simmer pot boxes" - and Vega will fernagle one for her and Arlo's camp.

We won't assume anything until it's reviewed, of course.

3 + 4. All set for the structure of the whole thing

Re: Xiur's Champion: For Vega and Friends.

Thread/Link: Going Clip Clippedy Clop on the Stairs
Condition Satisfied: HIre the Workers. Build the Beacon
Potential Complications: Vega's emotions
Summary:
This thread is the "crafting the beacon" thread focusing on Mavis (Jewelcrafting and Alchemy)
The following things happen.

1. Mavis shows Vega a "hood" she is working on which uses prisms to frame and intensify the Beacon

2. They agree that Mavis will have alchemificate cut glass (in the shape of a crescent moon) so that it glows in rainbows of colour - these will be placed on the railing of the stairs, so it twinkles and glows.

3. Mavis will do the same for the roof of Nella's Kitchen, but with cut glass that she'll make look like stars.

4. They talk about "why Nella's Kitchen" and Vega gets pregnant-emotional. She shows Mavis the parts for the sign for Nella's Kitchen that she has.

5. Mavis designs the sign for her (Expert Design) - she has Nella, sitting on a crescent moon to the top left of the sign. On the bottom right are a couple (him with a hat, her with a lot of hair) sitting with an older man smoking a pipe (Jonas / Arlo's dad) who has a young child on his lap - the child will be waving to Nella. Mavis will make small jewels for a string of pearls around Nella's neck and stars in the sky. She will also make a shiny / shimmering reflection in the pool the people are sitting by. It will be the same scene, except the child's hand won't be waving to Nella, it will be holding her hand.

6. Vega decides Mavis is an agent of Syroa, and cries.

We won't assume anything until it's reviewed, of course.

Re: Xiur's Champion: For Vega and Friends.

Thread/Link: The Expedition: Lets Begin!
Condition Satisfied: HIre the Workers. Build the Beacon
Potential Complications: I don't think so.
Summary:
The fourth survival training thread. In this, three of the Saoire NPCs (not Herman or Mavis) go with Vega on a hunt. However, they come across a litter of eight newborn Dinili, and their mother who has been killed. They bring the babies back to Hopetoun and bring the corpse back for resources gathering.

I've put it up for normal review - it's an FYI (so you know I'm keeping my side of the "train them, Vega!" bargain! )
 ! Message from: Pig Boy
Noted, that this is the fifth thread underway. So you have the go ahead to make use of the full expertise of the cadouri from Saoire's school.

Thread/Link: A Sharp Pane
Condition Satisfied: HIre the Workers. Build the Beacon
Potential Complications: Vega's emotions
Summary:
This thread is the "crafting the beacon" thread focusing on Mad Eye (glassblowing and design)
The following things happen.

1. Mad Eye explains how he'll make the beacon itself in a frame of / hood of glass - that will further focus the beacon and will protect it against the elements, etc.

2. He offers to make Vega large pickling jars for making bulk produce in Nella's kitchen.

3. Then, he suggests that they have a beautiful display and purchase area, filled with large glass jars, bowls etc displaying the products - these will be made with glass made with the orange or green sand to keep things warm or cool as needed. He'll also make small pots / jars for taking things home in that people can buy.

4. Vega says that she'd like to send some to Saoire's school - Mad-Eye suggests a meeting to discuss it and agrees to arrange it.

We won't assume anything until it's reviewed, of course.

Noted, you can presume these actions pass without significant failure or consequence. I will take a closer look when I review, but you're good as far as the beacon stuff is concerned.

Re: Xiur's Champion: For Vega and Friends.

Thread/Link: First, Aid.
Condition Satisfied: Prepare for the arrivals
Potential Complications: Vega's emotions
Summary:
This thread is her preparing for the arrivals.

The following things happen.

1. When the Order of the Adunih vessel runs into trouble during the freeze (the one bringing Ari'sora), they have to come ashore. That's 12 people stuck in Hopetoun for a while.

2. Vega makes them a camp - she uses her Fieldcraft capstone BambooVega has lived in the wilderness, or on the oceans, all her life. During that time she's seen a lot of extreme weather conditions. She has learned the art of building a camp which withstands the elements. Like the bamboo bends in the wind, rather than snaps, Vega has learned to set up a camp - large or small - which protects against the elements. Wind, rain, sleet, snow - they are all protected against. By putting a windbreak in just the right place, by having hot stones or warm sand around, things don't get broken, spoiled, etc. The upshot of this is that, subject to her having the resources she needs, Vega can make a comfortable and functioning camp in even the most extreme of weather - the inhabitants will suffer no ill effects from the weather in all its forms. They may not be warm in snow - but they won't be cold, won't be wet, will not stay awake hearing the wind howl, etc. One camp protects against all potential elements / weather conditions.

If the camp is of the usual size (eg: Vega, Arlo + NPCs) - then it takes half the time it usually would to set the camp up.
in order to make them super comfortable / safe.

3. She has a "run in" with an angry Order of the Adunih administrator - she uses a different capstone here. This is her DSM-II Psychology Capstone "Bottom Line Up Front" is an expression which more or less sums up Vega's way of being. She is not a trained therapist, nor is she a learned academic - far from it. However, time and again Vega has simply broken through to the heart of the matter and spoken the truth. She would hate - truly hate - to be a therapist, but she doesn't need to be one. With her innate understanding of people - and her unique means of talking - if Vega is presented with a problem, then she cuts straight to the chase and says it how it is. Somehow, she manages to give advice in such an obstreperous manner that it works. The mechanical impact of this is that a PC or NPC who is experiencing a trauma or a situation where they would usually seek a therapist can, after a chat with Vega, somehow feel like their problem has been worked through with to the point of having a much greater insight. Fundamentally, one "BLUF" conversation with Vega is equivalent to intensive therapy or soul-searching. where she calls out the guy on being an "unmitigated ball of phlegm".

4. Once she has finished the camp - she talks to the administrator and asks for help with the soon-to-be-there people. Mainly, she wants medical supplies from him. What they can spare now - and then what they can send over.

I won't assume anything until it's reviewed, of course.

Re: Xiur's Champion: For Vega and Friends.

Thread/Link: Second, Shelter.
Condition Satisfied: Prepare for the arrivals
Potential Complications: Vega's emotions,Mavis & Reggies Sex life.
Summary:
This thread is her preparing for the arrivals.

The following things happen.

1. Vega agrees to help Reggie and Mavis have a baby. (It was your consequence!)

2. She makes them wait 10 days, though, to make sure.

3. She goes and works with her cousins to set up a camp for the new arrivals. This will be a camp of 30 people. At this point, she figures any more can stay on the boat (and they can be helped there).

I'm deliberately quite speedy about "and they make a camp" - because she's directing people to do things (cos, pregnant) - and I don't feel that it's good story to explain her telling people to do things, then them doing it - it felt grindy? So I just had her tell them, and assumed it happened. HOpe that's ok - let me know if not, thanks!


I won't assume anything until it's reviewed, of course.
