Viden Development Thread
Welcome to the Viden Development Thread!

All PCs interact with their environments, thus all players are invested in the cities they RP in. Why, then, should we as staff be so selfish as to stop you from helping us to build this beautiful world that a part of us all lives in? All development projects must be approved by a Prophet... but, trust me, as long as you haven't developed a spaceship which crash-landed... we're all pretty easy going!

Here, you can post ideas and creations you have for Viden and the surrounding area. There are many things you can develop, whether it be a new Location, a City NPC, or even some new Flora & Fauna. Templates for these commonly developed (and needed) items are below. But that is by no means a complete list of things that can be added to Viden, so if you have an idea for anything else... feel free to post them here also! Games, sayings, celebrations, fables, even snippets from one of the many tomes kept in the Prime Atheneum, they're all welcome!

[Viden] Development Thread

Whisper, you might want to change Euri to Mur. Because new folks, like me might get a bit confused, or at the very least think that one is the same as the other and then ask questions to make sure they are right.

*smiles*

Anyhow, more ideas/ suggestions, in a bit.

Name: Kioo Tulki

Price: Since they're quite rare and bring good luck, the Kioo Tulki runs for about 300 GN, or 600 GN if trained.

Habitat: The Kioo Tulki can only live in extremely cold weather, like that in Viden. Many weaker ones even die during hot months like Saun, because they need the cold to keep their internal temperature down. They're immune to the cold, so many make their dens just by burrowing into the snow.

Diet: The Kioo Tulki survives mostly on ice, snow, water- and berries! They don't need much actual sustenance, so they can survive on anything they find, and berries are a special treat for them if they find them, and can keep them going for a good long while. Feed one some berries and they'll love you forever.

Lifespan and Development: A Kioo Tulki lives about the same average lifespan as a cat- anywhere from 16 to 23 arcs. The mother will be pregnant for about two seasons, and can only have up to two kits in one litter. However, Kioo Tulki can be pregnant as early as 1 arc old, so they have plenty of pregnancies in a lifetime. They're small things at first, and are born without their antlers- which develop after they're 1 arc old, in the earliest Cylus after that point. They can fly almost from birth though, and are proficient flyers within three seasons.

Frequency: The Kioo Tulki is actually a bit of a rare find. It tends to blend into the snowy mountains around Viden, and is adept at hiding itself if it thinks a predator is near. However, when you do find one, it's considered very lucky. Some are taken as pets, due to their docile nature. They're more likely to be found in captivity than in the wild, in fact.

Temperament: Totally harmless. The Kioo Tulki is a shy, sweet creature that has very little offensive qualities. Their only defense is to hide, run, and be clever. They make very nice pets as a result.

Appearance: The Kioo Tulki is often called the Ice Fox, due to its fox-like and icy appearance. A small thing, it is the size of a fox, with soft blue fur. Small paws, a small head, and a long, very fluffed out tail make up its body. The Kioo Tulki has large, pointed ears, and has two antlers growing out of its forehead. These antlers are made of pure ice. They're beautiful, like crystals, and tend to break off once an arc, usually before Vhalar, and grow back to full size by Cylus. The Kioo Tulki also has a small ice crystal growth around the base of its tail that looks like a gem, and a few small ice formations on its head, by the base of its antlers. It also has very pretty, graceful blue wings on its back. The Kioo Tulki can fly with ease, and often will be found flying around its owner's head (if it's domesticated).

Abilities & Weaknesses:: The Kioo Tulki is considered lucky because, more often than not, following one will lead you to good things. Whether it leads you to shelter from a snow storm, or to hidden treasure, if a Kioo Tulki finds you to be trustworthy, it'll lead you to good things. People who own them as pets hope to use that luck to their advantage. Kioo Tulki have also been known to be great finders. If you've lost something, merely ask your pet Kioo Tulki, and nine times out of ten they will bring it to you. They're extremely intelligent creatures, and while they are shy and timid, they make very loyal companions. Their weaknesses would simply be how small and docile they are, and how they can't stand heat.

[Viden] Development Submissions

Name: Aurora Glider

Price: It actually is illegal to buy or sell Aurora Gliders because they don't take well to captivity and can be dangerous. However, if you conquer one, and mount it, it will accept you as its owner. Even so, there are fools who sell young Aurora Gliders on the black market, going for around 650 GN a pop.

Habitat: No one really knows where an Aurora Glider makes their nest- as one has never been found. However, their habitat tends to be very high in elevation and very cold. Very few Aurora Gliders have ever been seen outside of the mountains around Viden.

Diet: The Aurora Glider survives on fish. These large creatures tend to dive into the waters around Viden and Scalvoris. They can hold their breaths for long amounts of time and they'll dive down, catch as much as they can hold, and then shoot up into the sky again. Aurora Gliders can also survive on land prey if they struggle to find fish.

Lifespan and Development: The Aurora Glider is actually fairly common. Despite only laying one egg every five arcs, and only being able to lay five eggs in one lifetime, this bird is a survivor. It can be found along the coasts of Viden and Scalvoris, and even in the mountain ranges of both of those regions. A few rare ones may even be found in the mountains of Northern Gauthrel. The Aurora Glider mates for life, and they live for around sixty arcs if they die naturally, though many die before then. An Aurora Glider is considered a child for the first five arcs of its life.

Toxicity/Hazard: The Aurora Glider can be fairly dangerous when threatened. It's a large bird, and its talons are extremely sharp. It can pick up whole cattle and other large animals in those talons. Its wings also have a powerful gust affect, easily causing snow and wind to flurry, and can knock a grown man down with just one flap. The Aurora Glider is a predatory creature, and it tends to enjoy snatching up people to take home to their nests for food.

Appearance: This beautiful bird is huge, easily the size of a large tower, and much bigger than any humanoid species. It's got a large blue feathered tail, and even larger wings that start out blue but are white on the ends. It has strong legs with large talons and a bulky torso, also with blue feathers. The Aurora Glider tends to have a mane of blue feathers on its head that resembles a mo hawk, and looks like blue flames rather than feathers. It has a short, sharp blue beak, and deep set, small eyes.

Other Information: The Aurora Glider got its name due to its habit of gliding through Aurora Borealis and Aurora Australis in the sky. The colorful night light formations are often seen with an Aurora Glider. This graceful bird loves to soar through them, as well as through snow storms and very windy skies. Its powerful, large wingspan makes it adept at this.

Hi Avrae! Thank you so much for getting these done for me! I love them, especially the Kioo Tulki... I want it as a pet! Though you made the same error I did when first creating fauna - you used the flora template!

I don't need loads of extra information, but if you could write a line or two for these categories, that would be great! If you need to shift around what you currently have, that's fine :)

*Face palm* I can't believe I did that. I've been doing both flora and fauna developments lately and I guess I mixed them up. So sorry, Whisper! I'll add that stuff once I've had some sleep and pm you once they're fixed, okay? <3

Videnese Snow Setter
Image
Developed by Duncan Oisin
Price: Pup - 15gn, Untrained - 30gn, Trained (Dogs trained for specific jobs; Hunting, Tracking, Guarding etc.) - 50gn

Habitat: Videnese Snow Setter (Snowies) are perfectly breed for even the coldest of Viden weather, and can work comfortably in the region year round. However, they are not capable of withstanding blizzard and storms, or particularly hot weather.

Lifespan and Development: The lifespan of the Videnese Snow Setter ranges from 12-15 arcs, tending to live longer than average dogs due to their hardiness and active lifestyle.

They develop along a similar timeline to most dogs, reaching physical maturity at approximately one arc, and reproductive maturity at an arc and a half. As pups their fur is fuzzy and much darker in colour, lightning as they grow. The Videnese Snow Setter sports a double coat that protects them from Viden's harsher elements; an undercoat that is short, soft and dense, and a topcoat that has thick, water repellent guard hairs. Coat colour ranges from pale honey to a deep auburn, but is always in the golden-red colour range. Due to their short undercoat and longer topcoat they appear to "glow" when in sunlight, prompting the nickname "Faldrun's Hound".

The Videnese Snow Setter has a coiled tail and perked ears, standing at 1'3-1'8 from the shoulder and weighing 20-35 pounds.

Diet: Due to it's energetic temperament and generally active lifestyle, the Videnese Snow Setter requires more frequent meals than the average lap dog. Their food should be high in protein and nutrients.

Temperament: Psychologically these dogs tend to reach maturity at approximately two to three arcs, and are friendly, happy animals that work very well with their masters. The make fantastic companion animals, but can be trained to hunt and track game. They are highly intelligent, but grow bored easily, so can be more difficult to train. They do not make ideal guard dogs, as they will not protect property, though they are very protective of family members that they have bonded with. They are high energy and are very active, with a high tendency to bark and howl.

Viden Academy Fitness Centre
Image
Developed by Maebella
The Viden Academy Fitness Centre was opened in the 607th arc. It was originally considered as a potential on-campus site for Menochoros practitioners as the martial art had gained a sizeable number of followers by the early 600s. However, there had been calls for a number of physical activities to be made available to Videnese students and a number of non-Academy affiliated citizens also indicated their interest. As a result, the Fitness Centre was designed and built to be used primarily by the students as it allowed them to keep their bodies in shape while they were expanding their minds.

While the centre is part of the Academy, it is open for everyone in Viden to use, which includes visitors to the city as well as residents who are non-students. Upon entry to the campus, the Centre can be found nestled off to the left, set apart from the rest of the buildings which are noticeably older. The Centre is a large building comprised of two storeys above ground, as well as a basement level as well. It is made up of a number of different rooms, which facilitate public training spaces and teaching spaces for small or large groups.

After passing through the double doors that mark entrance to the establishment, a visitor will pass into a small reception area. Here they will find a wooden desk with a variety of forms and a noticeboard on the wall, which advertises a variety of classes. All visitors will check in with the receptionist before going about their business to ensure that their payments are up to date and to make sure that they make use of the facilities that they want to use. Whether you're signing up for classes, practising or exercising alone, or seeking general information, it is necessary to go through the receptionist. For those seeking work, they'll be redirected to the Employment Contractor.

There are two doors leading out of the reception area, one on the left and one on the right, which lead to corridors on either sides of the building. These corridors provide access to stairs that head underground, stairs that head upstairs and a variety of rooms. The ground floor is largely dedicated to Unarmed Combat while the first floor is largely dedicated to Armed Combat.

There are washing facilities underground with attendants and food facilities upstairs with a variety of food and drink available and ample seating areas. There are a number of teaching spaces available, as well as sparring spaces and private session rooms. For those who aren't taking classes or engaging in specific activities, there is a gym on the ground floor and a number of fitness trainers are usually available, both male and female. Most of those who work here are human although there are also a number of Eídisi and a few Ellune.

Location NPCs

Moderator's Note: Players are free to control NPCs in this location without moderation.

Ashton Reed

Name: Ashton Reed
Sex: Male
Race: Human
Age: 23
Title: Fitness Centre Receptionist and Organiser
Skills: Writing - 76; Logistics - 76; Rhetoric - 62; Intelligence - 60; Leadership - 40
Details: An excellent organiser and great conversationalist, Ashton is quite an accomplished young man to be working at a job that many would consider menial. He might be better employed as a someone's personal assistance but in truth, the Fitness Centre would fall apart without him as he ensures that the scheduled times for the use of different rooms never clashes and that people always end up where they're meant to be. Anyone watching him can see that he takes pleasure in the work and even when he isn't actively helping a visitor, he can be found scribbling away in a notebook or organising the notices on the noticeboard.

While he may seem like a harmless sort of character, in truth, Ashton watches a lot of comings and goings within the Fitness Centre and has ways of learning interesting tidbits about the individuals who pass inside. Unbeknown to many, he actually collects information on every single person who comes in and relays certain pieces of information to the Directorate that he garners from eavesdropping, careful probing in conversation and other methods. Needless to say, he has more than one reason for working in a seemingly menial occupation.

Taeli Yorrick

Name: Taeli Yorrick
Sex: Female
Race: Human
Age: 31
Title: Women's Washing Facilities Attendant
Skills: Rhetoric - 76; Etiquette - 55; Logistics - 40; Caregiving - 40; Discipline - 26
Details: A quiet, unassuming woman, Taeli has a tendency of fading into the background of wherever she is. As such, she is an unobtrusive character to have as an attendant hovering nearby while you're washing. She's exceedingly helpful and happy to chat to anybody although she is something of a dreamer and can often be found staring into space.

Zoran Otto

Name: Zoran Otto
Sex: Male
Race: Human
Age: 35
Title: Men's Washing Facilities Attendant
Skills: Rhetoric - 76; Logistics - 55; Caregiving - 40; Discipline - 40; Etiquette - 26
Details: Zoran is little bit of a smart arse with a sarcastic sense of humour and a tendency to joke with anybody that he comes in contact with, even when it isn't wholly appropriate. It's something of a mystery how he ended up working in the Fitness Centre, especially as an attendant but he doesn't seem too bothered by the job - at least outwardly. In reality, he finds it boring and somewhat menial work but it has its advantages. Zoran is actually gay, a fact that isn't known by many who encounter him. He's always quite respectful towards those who come in to wash and would never openly stare, but he wouldn't be above checking out the odd man while he's dealing with his belongings.

Akkarin Liddy

Name: Akkarin Liddy
Sex: Male
Race: Human
Age: 56
Title: Fitness Centre cafeteria chef
Skills: Cooking - 76; Baking - 76; Logistics - 65; Rhetoric - 54; Leadership - 45; Business Management - 40
Details: While Akkarin has to deal with customers from time to time, he is mainly a man who works behind the scenes. He prepares an array of dishes, both savoury and sweet, and enjoys creating new things with whatever ingredients he has available. He has a temper and will often snap at his staff, largely commanding through fear although he has a fair amount of leadership ability as well. He doesn't come across as being much of a people person (he isn't), and he'll be fairly quiet when he does have to deal with customers. Better to remain silent then to bite their heads off.

Instructors
Unarmed Combat Instructors

Ilani Toren

Name: Ilani Toren
Sex: Female
Race: Eídisi
Age: 115 arcs
Title: Great Teacher; Menochoros Martial Artist (Aurelian Order); Menochoros Instructor (Advanced)
Skills: [Xypha - Favoured] Unarmed Combat (Menochoros) - 100; Endurance - 86; Strength - 73; Meditation - 68; Discipline - 63; Teaching - 55; Linguistics - 51; Medicine - 35 (Fluent in Common, Ancient Tongue and Leni; Conversational in Rakahi and Xanthea)
Details: Initially pursuing a Letter in Medicine at the behest of her parents, Ilani chose to travel after she finished it as she had a far greater interest in Linguistics. Before she went on her travels, the woman began studying Menochoros and has spent many arcs honing her skills in the martial art. Although aged and expected to step down as Great Teacher soon, Ilani is still fit, sharp-minded and eager to open the minds of others. Additionally, thanks to her knowledge of languages, she can converse with and teach those who may be new to Viden from places that don't use Common or those who may not be proficient in it.

Lida'via

Name: Lida'via
Sex: Female
Race: Sev'ryn
Age: 27 arcs
Title: Menochoros Martial Artist (Argent Order); Meditation and Discipline Instructor; Menochoros Instructor (Beginner & Intermediate)
Skills: Meditation - 76; Endurance - 65; Discipline - 54; Teaching - 51; Strength - 47; Unarmed Combat (Menochoros) - 42 (Fluent in Xanthea and Common)
Details: While seeking their Familiar, the Sev'ryn may travel quite far afield and that's precisely what happened to Lida'via. The city of Viden might seem quite a far cry from the warmer climes that can be found to the south but something about it seems to appeal to the woman. She has a great respect for what she views as quite spiritual philosophies behind Menochoros, which has led her to pick up some skill in it and decide to teach it. Furthermore, as someone quite used to meditation, she can see its benefits to the martial arts and finds herself eager to help those who seem to struggle to reach such a state of mind.

Arlen Travi

Name: Arlen Travi
Sex: Male
Race: Mixed (Biqaj x Human)
Age: 35
Title: Idalosian Mixed Martial Arts Instructor (Advanced); Boxing Instructor (Beginner & Intermediate)
Skills: Unarmed Combat (Idalosian Mixed Martial Artist) - 76; Teaching - 51; Strength - 47; Endurance - 47; Unarmed Combat (Boxing) - 40
Details: Originally from Rynmere, he found Rynlism too stifling, especially after he was marked by Xiur. Viden allowed him to worship Xiur openly and remain close to home, and considering his interest in different combat styles, he was drawn to the place where Menochoros began. Although Arlen found that he preferred more physical combat styles, he was still content to remain in Viden, especially as there were openings in the city for people with his skill set. As such, he has found himself teaching others more martial styles that he felt the icy city lacked.

Arlen is shorter than the Eídisi within the city but he has a rugged confidence that shows that he shouldn't be underestimated because of his size.

Cyneheard Thrace

Name: Cyneheard Thrace
Sex: Male
Race: Lotharro
Birthday/Age: 29
Title: Boxing Instructor (Advanced); Idalosian Mixed Martial Arts Instructor (Beginner & Intermediate)
Skills: Unarmed Combat (Boxing) - 76; Strength - 67; Teaching - 45; Unarmed Combat (Idalosian Mixed Martial Arts) - 40
Details: A member of the all-male, Cyneheard grew up in a manner that involved quite rigorous activity. Perhaps a little reserved and introspective compared to others of his race, he's still large enough to rival many Eídisi in height and many regard him as potentially hazardous to their health when they come across him.

It isn't wholly clear what brought him to Viden or what causes him to stay but if asked, Cyneheard will joke that he was attracted to the passion of the blue-skinned women, something that he seems to find extremely humorous
Blade Instructors

Wyllum Tariq

Name: Wyllum Tariq
Sex: Male
Race: Human
Age: 26
Title: Tariq Heir ("Lord" Wyllum); Sabre Instructor
Skills: Politics - 77; Etiquette - 63; Blade (Sabre) - 61; Leadership - 52; Teaching - 48; Strength - 37
Details: Son of Lord Tyburn and Lady Silva Tariq (née Yalta), Wyllum is seen by some as an aristocratic brat who was born with more money than sense. He's extremely arrogant and seems to enjoy lording his sense of superiority over others. However, given that he's one day expected to take on the full weight of the Tariq name, he was encouraged to give something back to Videnese society; he chose to teach. Despite his rather difficult personality, Wyllum isn't a terrible teacher and when giving instruction, he can be quite charming as well as helpful. Known for a love of alcohol, he also seems to have a thing with his fellow Blades Instructor, Bella Tollan, which is at least partially competitive.

Bella Tollan

Name: Bella Tollan
Sex: Female
Race: Human
Age: 32
Title: Rapier & Fencing Instructor
Skills: Blade (Rapier) - 76; Endurance - 55; Teaching - 51; Strength - 42; Seduction - 37; Intimidation - 32
Details: A small and pretty redhead, many people are fooled at first glance into thinking that Bella Tollan isn't a threat. It's something that she's fully aware of and she enjoys toying with people's perception of her as weak. Often underestimated, she's quick and frequently manages to draw shrieks of fear from men far larger than her. While obviously excellent with a rapier, she likes to show that there's a much of a mental component to using a blade as actually physically wielding it. The woman has a particular interest of messing with the minds of others, including her students.
Archery Instructors

Delenn Xycan

Name: Delenn Xycan
Sex: Female
Race: Human
Age: 38
Title: Short Bow Instructor
Skills: [Taithir - Favoured] Ranged (Short Bow) - 76; Strength - 65; Teaching - 51; Endurance - 45; Hunting - 45; Stealth - 37'; Mount (Horse) - 32
Details: Proud, dignified and not someone to be trifled with, Delenn bears fantastic strength, which is a must for the use of a short bow, a weapon that she's more than proficient with. Although she seems to have a preference for Viden, she's been known to travel to Rynmere to take part in mounted hunts for sport and will often help the hunters of Viden when it proves necessary as she is a hunter as well as an instructor. Although quite a direct woman prone to being blunt to others, especially her students, she does have a soft spot for those who seem talented with a short bow and can be seen being a little kinder to her favourites.

Noran Quayle

Name: Noran Quayle
Sex: Male
Race: Mixed (Sev'ryn x Human)
Age: 34
Title: Long Bow Instructor
Skills: Ranged (Long Bow) - 76; Fieldcraft - 62; Strength - 58; Teaching - 51; Hunting - 47; Endurance - 32
Details: Born to a Sev'ryn mother, Noran was initiated as a hunter at a young age and proved himself as having a fair aptitude for it, particularly when it came to shooting his prey. Although his mother always took excellent care of him and he loved her dearly, he found himself seeking a male role model as his own father was unknown to him. Incidentally, he left his original home of Scalvoris, travelling around Idalos as he found himself unable to settle. He found a kindred spirit in the figure of Jona Piqard and although there was only a decade between them in age, he vowed to follow the man wherever he went. They became hunting and travelling companions, eventually settling in Piqard's native city of Viden, taking up teaching positions to have something to do with their time when not hunting for the city's food or for sport.

Jona Piqard

Name: Jona Piqard
Sex: Male
Race: Mixed (Biqaj x Human)
Age: 45
Title: Crossbow Instructor
Skills: Ranged (Crossbow) - 76; Tactics - 62; Strength - 55; Teaching - 51; Hunting - 45; Stealth - 37
Details: Not your typical Videnese citizen given his Biqaj blood, Jona is someone who stands out due to his height (6' 5") and difference in colouring from the typically tall Eídisi and Ellune. Furthermore, he has inherited the colour-changing eyes of the Biqaj from his father, which makes him a fascinating individual to those who encounter him as Biqaj are not a common sight in Viden. He spent a spell working with the Rangers, learning a great deal about tactics and how to hunt humans as well as animals. He worked as a bounty hunter for a few arcs, which brought him to places beyond the icy city, at which point he met Noran Quayle and found himself inexplicably linked to the younger man. He returned to Viden with Jona and took up teaching positions so that they had something to do when they weren't hunting for food or sport.

[center][b]Developed by Maebella[/b][/center]
The Viden Academy Fitness Centre was opened in the 607th arc. It was originally considered as a potential on-campus site for Menochoros practitioners as the martial art had gained a sizeable number of followers by the early 600s. However, there had been calls for a number of physical activities to be made available to Videnese students and a number of non-Academy affiliated citizens also indicated their interest. As a result, the Fitness Centre was designed and built to be used primarily by the students as it allowed them to keep their bodies in shape while they were expanding their minds. 

While the centre is part of the Academy, it is open for everyone in Viden to use, which includes visitors to the city as well as residents who are non-students.

[b]Name:[/b] Ilani Toren
[b]Sex:[/b] Female
[b]Race:[/b] Eídisi
[b]Age:[/b] 115 arcs 
[b]Title:[/b] Great Teacher; Menochoros Martial Artist (Aurelian Order); Menochoros Instructor (Advanced)
[b]Skills:[/b] [Xypha - Favoured] Unarmed Combat (Menochoros) - 100; Endurance - 86; Strength - 73; Meditation - 68; Discipline - 63; Teaching - 55; Linguistics - 51; Medicine - 35 (Fluent in Common, Ancient Tongue and Leni; Conversational in Rakahi and Xanthea)
[b]Details:[/b] Initially pursuing a Letter in Medicine at the behest of her parents, Ilani chose to travel after she finished it as she had a far greater interest in Linguistics. Before she went on her travels, the woman began studying Menochoros and has spent many arcs honing her skills in the martial art. Although aged and expected to step down as Great Teacher soon, Ilani is still fit, sharp-minded and eager to open the minds of others. Additionally, thanks to her knowledge of languages, she can converse with and teach those who may be new to Viden from places that don't use Common or those who may not be proficient in it.
[/tab][tab=Lida'via][b]Name:[/b] Lida'via
[b]Sex:[/b] Female
[b]Race:[/b] Sev'ryn
[b]Age:[/b] 27 arcs
[b]Title:[/b] Menochoros Martial Artist (Argent Order); Meditation and Discipline Instructor; Menochoros Instructor (Beginner & Intermediate)
[b]Skills:[/b] Meditation - 76; Endurance - 65; Discipline - 54; Teaching - 51; Strength - 47; Unarmed Combat (Menochoros) - 42 (Fluent in Xanthea and Common)
[b]Details:[/b] While seeking their Familiar, the Sev'ryn may travel quite far afield and that's precisely what happened to Lida'via. The city of Viden might seem quite a far cry from the warmer climes that can be found to the south but something about it seems to appeal to the woman. She has a great respect for what she views as quite spiritual philosophies behind Menochoros, which has led her to pick up some skill in it and decide to teach it. Furthermore, as someone quite used to meditation, she can see its benefits to the martial arts and finds herself eager to help those who seem to struggle to reach such a state of mind.
[/tab][tab=Arlen Travi][b]Name:[/b] Arlen Travi
[b]Sex:[/b] Male
[b]Race:[/b] Mixed (Biqaj x Human)
[b]Age:[/b] 35
[b]Title:[/b] Idalosian Mixed Martial Arts Instructor (Advanced); Boxing Instructor (Beginner & Intermediate)
[b]Skills:[/b] Unarmed Combat (Idalosian Mixed Martial Artist) - 76; Teaching - 51; Strength - 47; Endurance - 47; Unarmed Combat (Boxing) - 40
[b]Details:[/b] Originally from Rynmere, he found Rynlism too stifling, especially after he was marked by Xiur. Viden allowed him to worship Xiur openly and remain close to home, and considering his interest in different combat styles, he was drawn to the place where Menochoros began. Although Arlen found that he preferred more physical combat styles, he was still content to remain in Viden, especially as there were openings in the city for people with his skill set. As such, he has found himself teaching others more martial styles that he felt the icy city lacked.

Arlen is shorter than the Eídisi within the city but he has a rugged confidence that shows that he shouldn't be underestimated because of his size.
[/tab][tab=Cyneheard Thrace][b]Name:[/b] Cyneheard Thrace
[b]Sex:[/b] Male
[b]Race:[/b] Lotharro
[b]Birthday/Age:[/b] 29
[b]Title:[/b] Boxing Instructor (Advanced); Idalosian Mixed Martial Arts Instructor (Beginner & Intermediate)
[b]Skills:[/b] Unarmed Combat (Boxing) - 76; Strength - 67; Teaching - 45; Unarmed Combat (Idalosian Mixed Martial Arts) - 40
[b]Details:[/b] A member of the all-male, Cyneheard grew up in a manner that involved quite rigorous activity. Perhaps a little reserved and introspective compared to others of his race, he's still large enough to rival many Eídisi in height and many regard him as potentially hazardous to their health when they come across him. 

It isn't wholly clear what brought him to Viden or what causes him to stay but if asked, Cyneheard will joke that he was attracted to the passion of the blue-skinned women, something that he seems to find extremely humorous[/tab][/tabmenu]

[tabmenu][tab=Wyllum Tariq]
[b]Name:[/b] Wyllum Tariq
[b]Sex:[/b] Male
[b]Race:[/b] Human
[b]Age:[/b] 26
[b]Title:[/b] Tariq Heir ("Lord" Wyllum); Sabre Instructor
[b]Skills:[/b] Politics - 77; Etiquette - 63; Blade (Sabre) - 61; Leadership - 52; Teaching - 48; Strength - 37
[b]Details:[/b] Son of Lord Tyburn and Lady Silva Tariq (née Yalta), Wyllum is seen by some as an aristocratic brat who was born with more money than sense. He's extremely arrogant and seems to enjoy lording his sense of superiority over others. However, given that he's one day expected to take on the full weight of the Tariq name, he was encouraged to give something back to Videnese society; he chose to teach. Despite his rather difficult personality, Wyllum isn't a terrible teacher and when giving instruction, he can be quite charming as well as helpful. Known for a love of alcohol, he also seems to have a thing with his fellow Blades Instructor, Bella Tollan, which is at least partially competitive.
[/tab][tab=Bella Tollan][b]Name:[/b] Bella Tollan
[b]Sex:[/b] Female
[b]Race:[/b] Human
[b]Age:[/b] 32
[b]Title:[/b] Rapier & Fencing Instructor
[b]Skills:[/b] Blade (Rapier) - 76; Endurance - 55; Teaching - 51; Strength - 42; Seduction - 37; Intimidation - 32
[b]Details:[/b] A small and pretty redhead, many people are fooled at first glance into thinking that Bella Tollan isn't a threat. It's something that she's fully aware of and she enjoys toying with people's perception of her as weak. Often underestimated, she's quick and frequently manages to draw shrieks of fear from men far larger than her. While obviously excellent with a rapier, she likes to show that there's a much of a mental component to using a blade as actually physically wielding it. The woman has a particular interest of messing with the minds of others, including her students.[/tab][/tabmenu]

[b]Age:[/b] 38
[b]Title:[/b] Short Bow Instructor
[b]Skills:[/b] [Taithir - Favoured] Ranged (Short Bow) - 76; Strength - 65; Teaching - 51; Endurance - 45; Hunting - 45; Stealth - 37'; Mount (Horse) - 32 
[b]Details:[/b] Proud, dignified and not someone to be trifled with, Delenn bears fantastic strength, which is a must for the use of a short bow, a weapon that she's more than proficient with. Although she seems to have a preference for Viden, she's been known to travel to Rynmere to take part in mounted hunts for sport and will often help the hunters of Viden when it proves necessary as she is a hunter as well as an instructor. Although quite a direct woman prone to being blunt to others, especially her students, she does have a soft spot for those who seem talented with a short bow and can be seen being a little kinder to her favourites.
[/tab][tab=Noran Quayle][b]Name:[/b] Noran Quayle
[b]Sex:[/b] Male
[b]Race:[/b] Mixed (Sev'ryn x Human)
[b]Age:[/b] 34
[b]Title:[/b] Long Bow Instructor
[b]Skills:[/b] Ranged (Long Bow) - 76; Fieldcraft - 62; Strength - 58; Teaching - 51; Hunting - 47; Endurance - 32
[b]Details:[/b] Born to a Sev'ryn mother, Noran was initiated as a hunter at a young age and proved himself as having a fair aptitude for it, particularly when it came to shooting his prey. Although his mother always took excellent care of him and he loved her dearly, he found himself seeking a male role model as his own father was unknown to him. Incidentally, he left his original home of Scalvoris, travelling around Idalos as he found himself unable to settle. He found a kindred spirit in the figure of Jona Piqard and although there was only a decade between them in age, he vowed to follow the man wherever he went. They became hunting and travelling companions, eventually settling in Piqard's native city of Viden, taking up teaching positions to have something to do with their time when not hunting for the city's food or for sport.
[/tab][tab=Jona Piqard][b]Name:[/b] Jona Piqard
[b]Sex:[/b] Male
[b]Race:[/b] Mixed (Biqaj x Human)
[b]Age:[/b] 45
[b]Title:[/b] Crossbow Instructor
[b]Skills:[/b] Ranged (Crossbow) - 76; Tactics - 62; Strength - 55; Teaching - 51; Hunting - 45; Stealth - 37
[b]Details:[/b] Not your typical Videnese citizen given his Biqaj blood, Jona is someone who stands out due to his height (6' 5") and difference in colouring from the typically tall Eídisi and Ellune. Furthermore, he has inherited the colour-changing eyes of the Biqaj from his father, which makes him a fascinating individual to those who encounter him as Biqaj are not a common sight in Viden. He spent a spell working with the Rangers, learning a great deal about tactics and how to hunt humans as well as animals. He worked as a bounty hunter for a few arcs, which brought him to places beyond the icy city, at which point he met Noran Quayle and found himself inexplicably linked to the younger man. He returned to Viden with Jona and took up teaching positions so that they had something to do when they weren't hunting for food or sport.[/tab][/tabmenu][/googlefont][/style2][/style]

[Viden] Development Submissions

On hold
The Slumberlands
Image
Developed by Aur'Ren
Legend has it, a location near the very center of the Tundra holds a vast ocean of destroyed ships. The location has often been described as a “Graveyard”. There are several ships, of both older an dnew age covered in snow as a result of consistent blizzards. The area is hardly accessable to those who have no knowledge of it. Even those who do have an idea as to where this “graveyard” is generally refuse to make any attempt to access the location. The journey is far too perilous for a small crew, let alone a single man. However, one small tribe of people have found a way of life within the treacherous tundra. They have taken to ice-fishing, and making use of several wooden ship hulls to forge shelter from. Some say that the people here have adapted to become carnivores; as they have nothing to live on outside the fauna for there are a lack of plants. Those who choose to reside here fight for survival on a trial, by trial basis. Those who venture to this area alone are typically killed long before they make the three trial journey outside Viden to the Slumberlands. If one so happens to stumble upon this land; they would find that an incredibly small population of Lothar, human, and ellune reside here. Typically, newcomers are welcomed with open arms, fed, and then returned to the path from which they came. The people found in this location are survivors, excellent combatants, and typically possess great skill in hunting as to battle against the large beasts they must face in order to survive.

Upon closer inspection of some of the ships; they appear to have frozen “waves” of ice surrounding them. Could this location have once been a body of water that suddenly froze all at once, and laid waste to the hundreds of ships? The area is a mere fifteen kilometers wide, and long; full of what could perhaps be great reward, or great peril. Several of the ships still contain supplies, and well preserved food; so frozen that it is inedible.

Details: Nathaniel is the “Leader” of the Slumberlands, and if one wishes to cross into the territory they must first gain express permission from him. While he does have a tendency to be open to welcoming new visitors into the land; he will viciously slaughter those who he distrusts. His people see him as a benevolent, generous ruler; he is more than willing to instruct would-be tribesmen on how to survive in the Tundra.

Price List

The People of The Slumberlands do not accept Nel, and will only trade their fish, and other rare items/fauna/etc for something of greater value. This requires skill in negotiation
Off Topic
Npcs are to be discovered with roleplay. There are several other NPC tribe-members one will encounter as they make the journey toward this location. Some of these NPCS will assist the player in moving forth into "The Slumberlands" Others, however will make attempts to drive the plaer off course, and kill the player before he reaches the Slumberlands. There are many secrets to be found in this location, and all of them must be uncovered in roleplay

Your character will roleplay a MINIMUM of four threads in order to learn of this location.

Reaching this location takes three trials from Viden, and will require five threads to access.

This location requires no moderator attention, but if one wishes to explore the cause of the massive shipwreck please contact a moderator.
The Sleepy Scatterer
Image
Developed by Aur'ren
Price: 500 GN
Habitat: The Tundra
Lifespan and Development: Sleepy Scatterers only live for approximately five arcs in the wild, and can only survive in the tundra. They are apex predators, and pack animals which are never caught alone; if there is one visible the likelihood is that dozens are in the area. They appear to be nothing more than normal canines, but upon closer inspection one will discover they have hind legs similar to rabbits. With lightweight bodies that contain a high percentage of body fat; they are an ideal source of protein. As a result of their powerful, and extreme muscle density they are capable of sprinting in excess of 60 mph. These creatures stand at approximately three feet in vertical height, and males weigh 20-45 pounds whereas females weigh 60-95 pounds. Their coats are consistent of two layers; the first layer is always coated in several ice formations as a result of its exposure to the elements. However, what keeps them warm is the coat beneath the first; consistent of a special body oil that seems to convert the cool air into heat as to help them maintain their bodily temperature. They are mammals, and carry their young in a pouch located just above their gut until the young reach the age of one arc and can sustain themselves. They have incredibly sharp teeth; that easily cut and pierce through even the most blubbery, and tough flesh. These creatures are found scattered about the entirety of the tundra, and will attack a lone human on sight.
Temperament: Aggressive
Abilities:Incredibly fast runners, Cold-proof oil on their hides, very strong with their high muscle density and sharp teeth; small claws on the forepaws.
