I'm sorry for how long that took for me to post... I haven't had Writer's Block in ages.

Skummy, not sure how to progress with Metheryl/Divankul. I'd be happy if you want to just go ahead and post again with Reynis' location?

All right. I'm back, jet-lagged to hell and back, but I'm here. Will be catching up today, and writing tomorrow!

Heartstone Estate Freyr



Freyr did feel a little out of place as Elmer and Amayl advised the lord admiral. He flet as if he were eavesdropping on a conversation that did it was not his place to be involved in. But this did concern him. By inserting Rivka, his only child, into this family their fortune and status became entwined in his. It was hard to say though who was the better choice. Casim was young it was true but he had seemed calm and confident. Freyr mostly worried about why they were attacked and how they planned to respond. He intended to bring it up in the meeting, it did not seem an appropriate dinner time conversation, especially with ladies present.



He had not really noticed Carndas staring at the lady. He was startled as she jumped up and began to yell at the new guard. Once she was seated again he stood.



“Carndas, wait outside.” He told the guard before sitting back down. He did not want to offend the matriarch of this family before the contract was finalized.



“My apologies. He meant no harm I’m sure.” Freyr said speaking both to Amyl and Mancel. “He is new and still needs some training in etiquette. Rodin, I believe is his surname. He is a commoner, but he saved my daughter’s life. He showed bravery and a sharp eye. I will make sure someone speaks to him about his manors. I’m sure he meant no offense.”



-------------------

Heartstone Estate rivka



Rivka smiled, glad to have the topic changed. But she was startled by Amayl’s outburst. She bit her lip a little as Cardnas was dismissed. She almost wanted to interject, tell him to stay, but she couldn’t contradict her own father and it likely wouldn’t serve her well to offend Lady Amayl. But she did lock eyes reassuringly with her guard, hoping he would know he wasn’t in trouble. She felt safer with him or Thomas near.
Hey dinth! You good if I skip this ahead to the meeting? Who would Freyr want present?

Yea go ahead and skip to the meeting. Freyr wouldn’t bring Rivka unless they asked for her to be there. He would mainly want to talk with Mancel but wouldn’t object to Casim or Elmer being there.

How's everyone doing? It's been quiet in here for a while.

Hm, for me, life is all right. Been working on writing/illustrating a children's book (so ****ing sick of bunnies). Trying to find work, as usual. Got a stupid cold. But all is well.

Yeh I'm sorry about that. I've gone completely cold on writing in general for the past couple months and have generally just been playing video games instead. I could likely force myself to post but as there isn't anyone waiting on me right now I'm not going to pressure myself overmuch to inevitably produce lower-quality content as I have been doing for the last year or so. Just waiting for my enthusiasm to return (hopefully it does, though it might not).

Totally understand. Though I haven't noticed a drop in quality at all. And it'll come back... might take time, but you'll come back and have a renewed passion for having taken the break.

Mrow I hope you find it Kotor, I've been battling infection and also too much work on late, then there's the fact I have been working on more mechanics for a larp group I run which drained my mojo for a bit....

I'm going to work one something tonight though!

Hello everyone ^^ I'm new to the Collective, and I was hoping that it'd be alright if I dropped in and joined here.

Name: Tabitha ("Bith")
Age: 19
Race: fully human... most likely
Birthplace: unknown
Appearance: She is about 5'8" (173cm) tall with long, blond hair and silver-blue eyes. Quite pale and well-developed in figure, only the scars and callouses lining her hands visibly mark her history as a lifelong slave.
Skills/Talents:
-unstable, sporadic, and largely unhelpful magical potential
-has held down a wide variety of jobs, typically as a result of her masters/mistresses attempting to distance themselves from her as much as possible, and is relatively quick to learn any new tasks
-scaring off potential suitors with her unbearably loud speaking voice
History/Personality: Having been abandoned by her most recent owner, Bith has now been left to wander and fend for herself... again. She approximately as trusting of other people as she is ignorant of why so many of her former masters have managed to "lose" her so far. Bith is rather hard of hearing but very faithful and hard-working.

I'm being interrupted as I write, so I will fill in more details later. Please let me know if there are any areas I should flush out further. It's been years since I roleplayed, so I'm sure that I'm more than a little rusty.

Hi Mira!

Glad you want to join us. Thought I'd write up a little bit to help prepare you for what you might be walking into... I'd strongly recommend reading the Codex and Census (at least of the active members). If after all this ridiculous info you're still keen, I'd encourage you to put your character sheet in your own post in the Census, and just edit it whenever you have a new character. We also have a Wiki to keep track of our characters and events in the timeline.

I saw on your intro post you were looking for something to get you back into roleplaying. So I should warn you that this is a roleplay more suited to people willing to wait months at a time for posts (it happens :( ) as we tend to write larger posts. If you want something rapid-fire, this is not the place. But if you're willing to wait it out, take your time, read a lot, I'd say Aradia's gotta be one of the best roleplays I've ever taken part in.

I think for your character the best thing you could do is understand where you are in the world before you start to play her. What sort of things do you want to do? Adventure? Serve? Fight your way to the top? Marry and settle down? Own chickens? (I'll also just add: Slavery is illegal in mainland Aradia, although some slave-owners do still operate on the down-low. Slaves (or escaped/freed slaves) are more likely to be found in the Tropics.)
