The Covenant Takes Flight OOC

Post by Balsa » Thu May 03, 2012 4:54 am

We don’t have an OOC thread for the IC thread, and I think we will be soon encountering situations where having one would be prudent, so I’m going ahead to make such thread.

So, huzzah, here’s the OOC thread.

To start off, Beohrt, Smoke, were you expecting any involvement with Asemir? And, related, were you planning on getting involved with Asemir’s fight against Valkner in any way?

Also, as an aside, Smoke, looks like you and I are finally RPing in a thread together. :P

Hmm. I wasn't planning on it per se, but now that you mention you haven't RP'ed with Smoke, I'd kinda love to see an Asemir/Arice strategy session. Valkner has enough supporters to keep everyone busy. It's a big place.

I'm fine with it either way. Arice, I guess I should read up on his wiki article. lol

Things have changed a little - Arice is now a Vankyr as you probably gathered. I think he could get involved, it would fit in with his moral intolerance and his willingness to fight for justice and what not.

Yeah, who'd have thought it? 9 years on and we're in a thread together! Let's do another in 2021!

We really ought to not pass up this chance to actually write something together.

Hmm... I'm thinking how this would work out. I was planning on having Asemir and Valkner fight it 1vs1 since we're planning on having Asemir take a place in the Academy, he's going to need some way to solidify his standing with the rest of the faculty. This duel could easily be it.

Agreed. It does need to be one on one. There could be other things for Arice to do, equally critical. Here's one thought. Valkner rules a planet, and he has something set up where he drains a bit of life energy from everyone on the planet - like Palpatine with Byss. What if he's set up something similar at the Academy, where it drains a little something from everyone? If there's an alchemical machine or something doing that, figuring out how to deal with that could be Arice's job.

I sorta thought that the drain was already in place. :P

Also, I realize that Asemir is going to be resistant to mental attacks given that whole Sera-in-his-head thing that he's had to learn to deal with for the past half-century or so.

Then no need to consult Golasj Murt. Cool. Just Asemir against Valkner, boom boom.

It'd certainly be a surprise for Valkner, since I doubt he's had much contact with Ingr'Nysk, let alone an Ingr'Nysk-that-had-another-Force-creature-in-his-head-and-he-is-insane-probably-Can-I-use-more-hyphens?.

Edit:
The one thing that might add some significance to your challenge is that, if I remember right, the loser's name and legacy can be stricken from all remembrance.
Does this mean we have to purge Valkner from the wiki? :lol:

No.

He's eeeevil, but he's memorable. I wish we'd done even more with him than we did, but this will still be significant.

That would fit well with his engineering skillset - something I've let fall out of the limelight a bit recently? Shall we do that ?

Double meaning!

Freaking Valkner.

I'm sorry if I jumped in - but the reversing the flow idea was too cool to let slip - it's Cyraan all over again! And it should help the challenger out and gives Arice a decent reason to be there, are you guys okay with what I did?

Let me know if you need a retcon, if not it's up to you how much it effects Valkner, just thought it would be seriously cool and and it's a nod to when he brought Cyraan's moon down onto Cyraan a bit.

Beorht, in regards to the AvV (Asemir v Valkner) fight, let me know when you'd like me to move that forward with a declaration or something.

Proceed at your discretion. I've got enough surprises and unintended consequences lined up that hurrying up to endgame isn't a big deal for the thread's length or whatever.

I may do a short post jumping to the next day with Asemir contacting Atreyu about the challenge, and you can respond to it when it's an appropriate time.

I'm thinking about a post with Asemir at the parade ground waiting for Valkner, with students and teachers filing out to watch. Is that appropriate, Beorht?

Go for it. There's also a picture on the Sith Academy wiki now.

Nope, it's solid.

I may be able to get something written today, but we'll see. I'm going to Toronto - a friend's getting married - so you'll either get a post today or, like, Sunday night or Monday.
