Victor Warrick

Name: Victor Warrick
Race: Human
Age: 39
Born: 1 Cylus 678
Title: Baron of Warrick
Skills: 60 Melee Combat, 20 Ranged Combat, 40 Shield, 30 Mount, 50 Deception, 50 Tactics, 30 Leadership

Not a tall man, with tousled blonde hair and beard. His heritage is as plain as if someone has tattooed ‘Warrick’ on his forehead. Broad shoulders and piercing blue eyes and there is no mistaking Victor. A family man, Victor was devastated by the loss of his only son. Usually fair and even minded he has encouraged his daughter to follow her hears desire in her pursuit of a career in the Iron Hand. Though with John’s death he regrets the decision and would deter her if possible. Although recognises that encouraging training and the increase of her skills would serve better in the long run.

An ambitious noble, Victor wants the best for the name Warrick and preferably his own children. This may be to the determinant of his nieces and nephews. Whatever ambitions he keeps however, he holds close to his chest. Victor appears as a genial man, an gruff temperament which gives way to an easy smile and an awareness of those around him that helps him to appear kind.

Somewhat immature, Rafa is determined to keep his past in the shadows and pursue a brighter future. A lanky young man, who wants to prove himself. He has messy dark hair and stubble that covers his jaw.

DOB: Arc 698
Title: Sergeant
Skills: Ranged Combat (30), Animal Husbandry (50), Mount (20)

A former stable hand, Kit is an adventurous young man with a love of animals. The rebellion saw him join up to the Iron Hand and put his passion to good use. Having lost his sole surviving relative during the battle, Kit has formed a fast friendship with Rafa and the pair have quickly become inseparable; despite Rafa’s dubious moral character. A keen learner, Kit is uncertain if he will ever be forgiven by Malcolm Krome for shooting him in the arm and intends to avoid the Warden if possible.

Shorter than his dark-haired counterpart, Kit has messy blonde hair and more freckles than it’s possible to count. An energetic soul he undergoes a remarkable transformation and becomes much calmer when working with the Volareon and other animals in the mews.

[Rynmere] Development Thread

I recently finished a thread with Sintih and I was asked to post the information here for review and to help make it official lore for Rynmere. As the information in the thread is in scratch format, I'l try to restructure it a bit better below and I can format it however desired if it gets accepted. I've also included some information below that I've come up with since but that Sintih hasn't written about IC yet.

Possible additions to Rynmere military Lore
Arming Sword Standards
The arming sword, also known as the knight's sword, is the main weapon that comes to mind when people think about war. Most basic infantry units are equipped with this weapon in combination with a shield. Because of this, the arming sword carried the title of "war sword". The arming sword is an overall light and versatile weapon that can both cut and thrust in combat. It is usually accompanied with a shield of some description, combining a versatile offense with a solid defense, and creating a form with high survivability. But the arming sword can also be used on its own or in combination with a smaller off hand weapon. In case no other weapon is used, the free hand can be used for grabbing, grappling or attacking opponents as well.
With many arcs of practice, the Andarian smiths have mastered the creation of these weapons. This has resulted in a set of standards for the creation of the arming sword for the Iron Hand.

Andarian Standards
  • Weight: between 0.9 and 1.2 kg (1.9-2.6 lbs) depending on material and years of use.
  • Length: between 80 and 100 cm (31.4-39.3 in) with a blade between 70 and 80 cm (27.5-31.4 in)
  • Blade type: Double-edged, straight
  • Hilt type: One-handed, cross guard, pommel
Iron Hand Basic Close Combat Styles
Like any major standing army in the past or present, the Iron Hand has distinct styles to their combat. Any squire taking training with the Iron Hand will come in contact with these either by facing off against them or because they're learning them. Having unified or basic styles within the army allows for greater efficiency in situations. Knowing that there are certain things every member of the Iron Hands is capable of allows for better teamwork between the knights when needed. While each style as designed for a specific set of weapons in hand, there are many specialists (or eccentrics) that use "exotic" weaponry with certain styles to create their own hybrids, that add parts of each style together or that combine a style with things they learned in far away places before joining the Iron Hand into a style that is uniquely their own.

(names need to be lore-ified still)
Balanced Style
A simple and predictable style that lays the foundation for a solid skill in combat and for other forms to be created from it. Due to its ease of use and simple techniques, the balanced style is taught by many knights and stewards to beginning squires. You'll be hard pressed to find a knight who knows absolutely nothing about the balanced style. While it can't measure up in power with the power style and isn't fast enough to keep up with the speed style, the balanced style provides a good fall back for any fight. Having counter measures against both Power and Speed users, the balanced style can adapt quickly to enemies in order to assure survival. Often, knights will use the balanced style to test their enemies and find out what style they use in order to learn their weaknesses before using their own style to finish them off.

Power Style
Based primarily on powerful strikes to break the enemy's defense it sacrifices speed to gain power. Using strength and power, the power style causes more damage with a single attack than the other basic styles. Due to it being used mostly with two handed weapons, the reach and power of the style is particularly effective against single opponents wielding melee weapons. The power style is also known for using the body itself as weapon, knocking opponents down before finishing them off. The speed of the style does leave many openings for faster or ranged opponents to make use of but a patient user could lure enemies in with a fake opening and end a fight with a single swing of their weapon.

Speed style
Made up of short and quick motions to attack and defend, this style can be chained and combined almost indefinitely, making it very hard for slower opponents to get a technique in. Using speed and precision to attack, the style does less direct damage but relies on bleeding opponents out or taking them down with a single hit to a critical opening in the enemy's defenses. While the style doesn't allow for locking weapons with stronger opponents or blocking direct hits, the finesse used by the style often sees blows being redirected away from the user. Mostly used with two lighter and shorter weapons, the style has a great weakness in its range, requiring the user to get really close to an enemy before being capable of striking true.

Variations of styles
While a sword and shield are a basic equipment combination, the preferred style of the user will change how these weapons are used in combat. As a balanced user, the shield might block attacks while the sword will attack. As a power user, the shield might be used as a bashing weapon and the sword as nothing less than a hammer. As a speed user, the sword and shield might be used interchangeably with the shield blocking an attack one round and then delivering one the next while the sword does the opposite.

Other Information: Ignatious Spekkle is the owner of Spekkle's Apothecary in Andaris. He is in his late sixties and has very limited social skills. He is a kind soul and fundamentally a good man, but he is unaware of personal space, likes to let his gaze linger over long on the female form and has an unfortunate, and chronic, case of halitosis. He is good at his job but limited in his ability to think outside of the norm. He loves a good meal, tends to drink too much and has a loud laugh which is often heard from outside the shop.

The Rusty Anchor

Image
Located at the Docks in Andaris, The Rusty Anchor is a pub with the seafolk and sailors as target clientèle. It doesn't look all that clean and great from the outside, more like a shack than a tavern, but the inside is surprisingly tidy. Wooden tables and chairs are scattered across the chamber, empty rum bottles hold candles and are placed everywhere. At the far wall of the room a hearth burns with a pleasant warmth.

The Rusty anchor has a rather limited choice of drinks one can get, but it's cheaper than the city's Inns (per mug, that is), and the sailors doesn't have to walk to the Andaris proper to enjoy them. Of course, since the customers are rather rowdy, there are the occasional brawls that start here, but the owner of the place is pretty competent in smothering those quickly.

There is entertainment aplenty to be found in the Rusty Anchor, most of which come in the form of games of chance. Any who asks may borrow a set of dice or cards from the bartender. Recreational drugs can also be bought, though one has to know who to talk to. Often there is at least one dealer present at night, who will gladly exchange his wares for those with the coin. Officially though, there are no such people present.

Geoff

Image
Race: Biqaj
Age: 57arcs
Title: Geoff the One-eye, Old man Geoff
Skills:Storytelling21, Socialization53, Weapon: cane48, Intimidation 79, Sailing42
Languages Common, Rakahi

Geoff The One-eye, or commonly called 'Old Man Geoff' by the regular customers and friends, is the owner and bartender of The Rusty Anchor. With his grizzled appearance and eye patch over his right eye, he's rather the stereotype old sailor. However, he is a pleasant man to talk to and while his sense of humor might not be all that funny as he thinks it is, he is liked by many.

In the past, Geoff was a sailor who never married or raised kids, preferring to call the sea his home and his ship, 'Anne de Chantraine', his bride. When he grew too old to conquer the waves and his ship was eaten by the ocean, Geoff decided to give up sailing and started a pub instead. He can often be persuaded to tell tales about his adventures in the past, but whether they are true of not is not something one can be sure of.

Despite his friendly nature, Geoff does not tolerate troublemakers and if a fight starts he will make sure it is canceled right away, using his skill in intimidation to freeze the troublemakers in their spots. Should that not be enough to break up a brawl however, he will throw them out using his cane as if it were whip. Often he will get help of the regulars, all of which are rather fond of the old man and his pub. Yet, it isn't that Geoff hates a brawl, no. Rather, he has spent quite a bit of coin on his ramshackle tavern, and would rather not see his property damaged. Despite not holding the outbreak of a fight against his customers, if they break things he expects them to pay for the damages, and can be really convincing to make sure they do. Those that start a fight but cause no damage to the furniture often get off the hook with just a warning.

The Silver Outfitter

Image
The Silver Outfitter is a mid to upper class store, specializing in jewlery and high end, formal outfits. They have had moderate success, and have decided to expand recently into glassblowing and footwear.

The shop has a small area for customers, as the vast majority of their products are personalized orders. There is a handful of jewlery and intricate stitching out, to simply provide an idea of the skill level.

Behind the counter, the shop is divided into two large rooms. The leftmost room is the sewing room where clothing orders and measurements are done. One wall is filled with bolts of cloth of all colors and styles, while a set of mirrors in the corner allows the clients to view themselves from all angles. The back wall of the room is windowed, revealing a high-walled courtyard, barely ten paces across.

The right room is the jewelry and glassblowing shop. A large workbench dominates the center of the room, various furnaces and tools fill the walls. Clients are rarely allowed in this room, and a thick oak door seals it off from the rest of the building. It is often sweltering in the summer, cooling to a tolerable heat during the winter.

Two sisters own the shop, having started it after their husbands passed away while on a fishing trip.

Shop NPC List

Moderator's Note: Players are welcome to use these NPCs if they're writing about this location.

Victoria

Image
Race: Human
Age: 31 arcs
Skills: Sewing: 55, Drawing: 50, Etiquette: 50, Detection: 25, Negotation: 45.


Victoria is the more outgoing of the sisters, and is often the only one customers will ever meet or deal with. She is bubbly, outgoing and cheerful with a memory for faces and names.

She loves sewing and has a fascination with the latest fashions, jumping on board every season without a second thought. She has a small band of dedicated customers who provide the majority of the work the store receives, and Victoria is to thank for that.

Brianna

Image
Race: Human
Age: 29 arcs
Skills: Jewelry Crafting: 80, Business Management: 65, Singing: 75


Brianna is incredibly dedicated and talented, but would not be in business save for her sister. Brianna has a shrewd head for numbers but lacks the refinement that most of her clientele require. She more than makes up for that by producing incredible jewelry and running the business from behind the scenes. She is perfectly okay with the arrangement, and is grateful that she is not required to speak with customers.

She used to be far more outgoing and social, but the death of her husband was a blow she never fully recovered from. She has a tendency to sing, wordlessly, heartwrenching melodies as she works.

Some new Faction VII peeps to play around with

****************************************************************
Name: Vesper
Created by: Vex
Race: Human
DOB: 89th day of Vhalar, 692th Arc (24 Years Old)
Title: Crook [Faction VII]
Skills: Logistics: 35, Smuggling: 35, Writing: 10, Mathematics: 10, Unarmed Combat: 5, Blades (Short Sword): 5
Other Information: Contrary to belief, not all members of Faction VII are known for their martial prowess or their rugged appearance; Vesper is a prime example of this. A bookish, timid man, he caught the eye of Chief Vilhelm's contacts within the Rynmere University after displaying particular interests in logistics and mathematics. Forced to drop out of the university in 714, he was quickly swooped up and employed as a bookkeeper for the various illicit activities being run in Lowtown. Not the most intimidating of men, Vesper has proven himself reliable and is often left unsupervised by his superiors for the day-to-day operations, though he often has in his company one or two bodyguards to watch his back when he has to move about in the seedier parts of the city.
Name: Vandal
Created by: Vex
Race: Mixed Race (Human/Biqaj)
DOB: 23rd trial of Cylus, 694th Arc (22 Years Old)
Title: Crook [Faction VII]
Skills: Bludgeons (Mace): 30, Intimidation: 25, Unarmed Combat: 20, Endurance: 15 Smuggling: 10
Other Information: Standing at six foot two and weighing in just under two hundred pounds, Vandal is a growing force to be reckoned with within the Andaris crew of Faction VII. Although only having joined in 715, he has proven himself more than capable in operating within the system. He’s not the brightest of men, and has shown little aptitude beyond that of martial skills, which has left him relegated to the more menial tasks within the crew like bodyguarding and extortion, though he has had a hand in smaller raids in the past. When not assigned to any one task for the crew, he can often be found hanging around the docks, as he’s always found a closer connection with Biqaj than with humans.

He even got married to a nice Qi'ora girl and had a few kids... but it was so boring! So he... well, he ducked out. Said goodbye, abandoned his family, left home. He didn't even tell his wife- one night he was just gone, with divorce papers left in his stead. He traveled for a while, but then he met a human man who trained him in the art of war, and signed him up for the military in Rynmere. Karluck's been around ever since, and has been a recent addiction to Steward Irri's squad of knights.

However, she is a very powerful mage. She knows Defiance magic- particularly the element of air- and she's very good at what she does. She hasn't revealed her arcane arts to many people, given the opinion of it, but she does believe in using it if a situation is dire enough. She worships Kata and hopes to earn a blessing from her someday, which is fitting because Alice loves destruction, ruin, chaos, and insanity almost as much as Kata does. Crystalice is a new member of this squad, because it was hoped that Steward Irri could control her.

He's a valuable member of the military, despite not having much of a fighting skill.

The Little Garden

Image
The Little Garden is a tall, sturdy building in Venora, often covered in ivy during warmer seasons, and appears bright and welcoming on most days. Due to the beauty and excitement of other shops surrounding it, this place looks lackluster in comparison, and as a result, has not always received the attention it deserves. Large, and with plenty of space, this could be the ideal home for children in need, but instead lacks proper funding and the woman in charge is often run thin doing everything by herself, i.e cooking, cleaning, sewing, which often leaves some other items such as leaky roofs, drafty windows, etc, to go unchecked. The few older children try to help with the chores and the care of the youngest residents, but labor is still in small supply.

If one were to walk inside, they would see just how plain it is. The floors are a dark mahogany, but the walls are a dull grey or white with the paint chipping in various places. Some of the children's clothing is too small, or too loose, often rotated or handed down among the youths until the matron can afford to buy a new outfit, often out of her own pocket money. Very few toys litter the halls, but the children make due with the best they can. Despite its desperate need for money, the bright spirits and faith of the matron keep this place from falling into disrepair.

Maybella Dawson

Image
Race: Human
Age: 35 arcs
Title: Matron
Skills: Cooking (45), Business (50), Teaching (50), Baking (30), Singing (25), Medicine (25), Gardening (25)


Ms. Maybella is an honest, hardworking, and truly compassionate soul. She cares deeply for the children she looks after and does her best to keep them fed and clean. Originally born to an upper class family, she was always very fond of children and planned to start a large family of her own, but after being slighted at the altar, decided not to settle down, and instead care for others without a man. She used her dowry to buy an old house and got a contract with Sabaissant and filed all the formal zoning papers. Soon enough, the Little Garden flourished, but after some time, her own money started to run low and the taxes haven't quite cut it.

Likes: Children, generosity, art, coffee, blueberries, Vri

Folklore

Variously known as "The Love-lorn Scholar", "The Scholar Who Loved and Lost (His Clothes)", "The Learned Fool", and "The Scholar's Lament", the story of the University Scholar who mistakenly thought himself too wise to be tricked and paid for his arrogance by losing all of his clothes is often trotted out by those making the argument that arranged marriages are superior to random love matches. It is also told to new students as a cautionary tale, but it is most commonly heard being belted out as a drinking song or in the bard corners (and shows an increased number of requests whenever one of the nobler students has recently done something offensive or obnoxiously haughty).

THE LOVE-LORN SCHOLAR
I loved a girl by the name of Pearl
And she said that she loved me
I stroked her hair and she purred like a cat
And I thought we'd soon be wed.
But she had her eyes on something else
And that's how I lost my hat!

I loved a girl by the name of Anne
And she said that she loved me
I sang along when she played the flute
And I thought we'd soon be wed.
But she had her eyes on something else
And that's how I lost my boots!

I loved a girl by the name of Clare
And she said that she loved me
I took her out to ride in a boat
And I thought we'd soon be wed.
But she had her eyes on something else
And that's how I lost my coat!

I loved a girl by the name of Grace
And she said that she loved me
We rolled quite happily in the dirt
And I thought we'd soon be wed.
But she had her eyes on something else
And that's how I lost my shirt!

I loved a girl by the name of Joan
And she said that she loved me
We kissed each other as confidants
And I thought we'd soon be wed.
But she had her eyes on something else
And that's how I lost my pants!

I loved a girl by the name of Rose
And she said that she loved me
She let me pay for all her food
And I thought we'd soon be wed.
But she had her eyes on something else
And that's how I woke up nude!

I loved a girl by the name of Belle
And she said that she loved me
I felt that I was smarter - she took me for a ride
Though I thought we'd soon be wed.
But she had her eyes on something else
And that's how I lost my pride!

Northern Krome House

Image
The Northern Krome House is home to Baroness Sophia Krome and her husband Jersey Krome, aswell as their son Lord Xander Krome. The house is quite new, built only by the current Duke of Krome. The building is built in a very Venoran style, as is currently the height in all things fashionable. The house has sprawling gardens that are filled with many different plants and even the occasional water feature. It is rather small with only 4 bedrooms, however the whole building is spacious and well suited for entertaining guests but not housing them. The rooms are designed to be welcoming and open so guests can roam easily and many people can fit into the house. The house is run by a team of eight slaves, all coordinated by Xander Krome, acting Steward of the house. The building is well furnished and the inside much matches the out, Venoran in style and especially in cost. The house is often considered unKrome like, with the highly expensive decor and gardens, few Krome people would spend so much money on creating a house. However, if fits well with the countryside in which it stands. It is located east of Pathos Bay, built on the outcrop from the main land. The house is not tactically in a sensible Location with sea to the North, East and West. Although, the house was never built with the intention of being used as a fort or for military purposes at all. The household has been known on several occasions to entertain guests, especially those of the noble kind.

Race: Human
Age: 19
Title: Handmaid
Skills:Sewing- 40, Competent, Discipline- 40, Competent, Cooking- 30, Competent, Detection- 30, Competent, Etiquette- 60, Expert

Elisa was brought into the household most recently to serve as a handmaid, mostly assisting the Baroness. She does, however, help with other chores around the house too. She can occasionally be found helping in the kitchen or sometimes even in the gardens when not assisting the mistress of the house. Her young mind can often get the better of her and she might sometimes find herself eavesdropping on the lords and ladies who come too and from the house. This can make her a valuable asset to any who may wish to learnt eh secrets of the house, although her tongue is not easy to force.

Helart

Image
Race: Human
Age: 20
Title: Man Servant
Skills:Storytelling- 40, Competent, Discipline- 35, Competent, Singing- 40, Competent, Pick Pocketing- 30 Competent, Etiquette- 60, Expert

Helart serves Jersey Krome, much of what the boy does is not so much hard work. His master tends to ask him to sing or tell stories, normally for the entertainment of the bored man. He is a quite content slave and he works in the service of his house without a falter in his belief. Even though he may steal the extra bit for himself here or there when his master is not looking. Like the other members of the household he is well trained in presenting himself and the common etiquette needed to interact with nobles.

Bolrick

Image
Race: Lotharro
Age: 30
Title: Gardener
Skills:Poisons- 30, Competent, Discipline- 35, Competent, Cooking- 30, Competent, Gardening- 55, Expert, Etiquette- 60, Expert

Bolrick is a friendly man, although he prefers to keep to himself.He does not enjoy being enslaved but he does his duty and remains as free as he can within his uncontrollable boundaries. He is a great gardener, who knows also a thing or two about poison with some such plants growing in the garden. He is not terribly loyal to his masters, but he also has no reason to betray them and hears very little information of importance in the garden.

Cannie

Image
Race: Human
Age: 64
Title: Cook
Skills:Discipline- 30, Competent, Cooking- 60, Expert, Baking- 35, Competent, Etiquette- 60, Expert, Teaching- 20, Novice

Cannie, partner of Badon, is the cook of the house and also mentor to young Ilrae. She is the longest serving member of the household besides Badon who is equal with her. She is a very skilled cook and also a good baker, her skills are more than satisfactory for the lords and ladies of Krome and no guest from further off has ever complained. She takes great pride in her work and has no time for idol gossip or chit chat.

Badon

Image
Race: Human
Age: 66
Title: Butler
Skills:Intelligence- 45, Competent, Discipline- 40, Competent, Endurance- 35, Competent, Detection- 30, Competent, Etiquette- 60, Expert

The oldest of the household, and partner to Cannie, Badon is the joint longest member of the household. Being the butler he sees and hears a lot, learning many things he should not. However, Badon's loyalty does not lie with the Baroness or her husband it instead lies with Xander. Badon would do anything for the boy he saw grow up, this includes going as far as sacrificing his life. Even with this he is still a great butler, never a complaint to be seen from the guests.

Ilrae

Image
Race: Human/Aukari
Age: 15
Title: Kitchen Hand
Skills:Baking- 42, Competent, Discipline- 45, Competent, Cooking- 40, Competent, Detection- 45, Competent, Etiquette- 60, Expert

The boy is a promising cook, and with a mentor like Cannie he could certainly take her place after she eventually passes. The boys only flaw is his big ears, he is always listening about for rumours around the house and looking for the secret goings on. The boy is also young and not very loyal making him easy to manipulate and question.

Enar

Image
Race: Human
Age: 13
Title: Serving Boy
Skills:Discipline- 20, Novice, Cooking- 25, Novice, Detection- 20, Novice, Etiquette- 60, Expert, Persuasion- 45, Competent

Although clumsy and unskilled, the boy is close with Xander. He has managed to find Xander's soft spot for fatherless children and there for can easily persuade the man to go easy on him. His lack of ability to do his job is found frustrating among the other members of the household who have to pick up his slack. The boy is loyal to a fault to Xander, making him a valuable asset for the man.

El'tila

Image
Race: Sev'ryn
Age: 29
Title: Resident Priest
Skills:Meditation- 45, Competent, Discipline- 40, Competent, Singing- 35, Competent, Storytelling- 45, Competent, Etiquette- 60, Expert

El is always there to give his wise and care filled assistance to any in the household. He is often there to remind the people of the immortals as well as keep the religious standings of everyone high. He is only loyal to the immortals and knows little of the secrets of the house.
