    There's multiple mountains but I honestly don't know which one is the highest.




  • MihaketiMihaketi Member Posts: 65 ✭✭✭
    Joke answer aside, I think thematically it would be that one mountain that the Fellowship of Explorers leader hangs out on. Redwing?

    I don't know that just doesn't feel right. I mean it's like a few rooms off of the highway compared to some where the areas are like HUGE and sprawling with BIG CLIMBS.

    I feel like Skyreach may be the highest point, as it is atop the Mountains, then you have to climb multiple levels, it seems it is likely the biggest peak?

    Do you mean Skythrone? If not, where the heck is Skyreach?

    Also, I feel like (if you that's what you meant) Skythrone is probably a bit shorter these days than it used to be. :blush:

    Skythrone is joining with Spinesreach to become Skyreach!

    With Ylem being the source of most things, would you say Steampunk is more and more everpresent on the Horizon? We are still rather gothic over on Sapience, but Albedos comes off as distinctly Steam-punk.. so would it be theoretically possible for the more...fantasy sections of Steam punk to be possible as a result? Things like steam-punk body augmentation and such, of course. The mixture of steampunk with biological parts?

    Rapid fire question round:

    What's the average height of all the playable races? (to clarify, I don't mean the combined average height, but rather the average height of each individual race)
    Do vampire minions (the new ones) have sentience, or are they just blood animated corpse puppets?
    What about golems?
    Are monks telekinitic as well as telepathic?
    How long is a piece of string?
    What exactly is a raloth?
    Is the gender of a God defined by Their vessel, or preference, or something else entirely?

    And finally,

    Why ARE Nazetu so darn slimy?

    Yes, monks are telekinitic. We can pick people up and throw them with mind wrench as well as some other skills that could be considered telekinitic. We're also well known for picking up our monastery and moving it with our minds. We also have moved Moghedu in the same fashion.

    Everything I've seen suggests yes to the first. I've always assumed golems basically lack sentience, or even if there's anything like it, the powers of animation essentially overpower it by making the golem so tightly bound to the teradrim that it has to do everything that it's been ordered or trained to do. ICly, they aren't supposed to have souls, but I think vampires aren't supposed to either?

    1) As a general baseline, but recognizing that a wide degree of variance exists:
    • Arqeshi, Horkval, Nazetu, Ogres and Trolls stand about a head to a head and a half taller than the average human.
    • Grecht, Grook, Orcs, and Rajamala stand about the same height as the average human.
    • Atavians, Kelki, Mhun and Tsol'aa are almost the average human height, but perhaps half a head shorter.
    • Dwarves stand about a head to a head and a half shorter than the average human.
    • Finally, Imps stand about two heads or more shorter than the average human.
    2) Yes. They are sentient, and they exist under the sole dominion of their creator.

    3) Golems are not sentient, but they also exist under the sole dominion of their creator.

    4) Yes, as explained by Kerryn.

    5) As long as you need it to be, as explained by Teani.

    6) There are ways of finding an answer to this question IC, which I invite you to pursue.

    7) Gods are above such things as gender. Many fit some standard of masculinity or femininity, while others - like Slyphe - are more difficult to categorize. Shell, while influencing a God's expression of gender, is not the sole determining factor.

    8) The Nazetu are indigenous to hot, humid tropical islands! The sliminess is a hypersecretion mechanism that prevents them from overheating as easily. It is for this reason that the level 75 racial abilities for both Arqeshi and Nazetu involve cold in some fashion.

    Are many telepathic abilities the result of accessing a dimension (like Dendara or an elemental plane), or more of a gestalt subconscious network comprised of all sentient beings that Telepaths can tap into more readily than others? Or is it sort of a combination of the two?

    Do the various races have traditional singing styles that are analogous to ones we find in real life? For instance, Rajamala perform something like Chinese Opera, Dwarves have something like Yodeling?

    Not an answer, but a pause for clarification - what do you mean by analogous?

    Certainly, in those Aetolian cultures that are clear parallels to real-world ones (e.g. the Rajamala follow Aztec cues, the Indyuk follow Inuit cues), you can draw the reasonable inference that their music is along similar lines to that of their real-world counterparts. Where comparisons are less apt, err on the side of caution, or assume that the races in question have multiple traditions and be sure that any RP you create around a musical tradition is potentially open to the existence of others. In many cases, Aetolian music will break down by region more so than race; each of the cities have distinctive styles that thread through the lands they control.

    I'm trying to imagine a dwarf yodeling, but I just can't.

    Tellsoff to stop monks?
    (Oasis): Azzello says, "I'll still never forget the first time I saw Toz throwing hammers."
    (Oasis): Azzello says, "I freaked out and thought they had somehow managed to pull me into them."
    (Oasis): Azzello says, "So I tumbled away from my team and into theirs."

    Probably not, since Telepathy is the equivalant of taking a battering ram to someones mental gates.

    Whereas tells is more like getting a phone call. Which you then ignore, and send to voicemail (i.e. messages)

    With the displacement of the Tsol'aa after the Aalen incident and the destruction of the people of Tasur'ke, I know that Tsol'aa culture has primarily moved on to worship of the late Lleis, or at least Her tenets, as well as overall reverence for nature in general.

    However, prior to this, did the Tsol'aa have any kind of faith or elements of their culture that have been lost to time? My assumption was that Tsol'aa put emphasis on ancestor worship, if anything, but mostly only cared for living in communion with the area around them. Any clarification on this would be appreciated.

    A great deal of the Tsol'aa's original worship (and customs) were not recorded and, subsequently, lost to time. The Tsol'aa have undergone several diasporas in their history. You might see it crop up down the road with some developments with the few surviving Tsol'aa denizens.

    What is the lore behind the Radiant Valley in the Shamtota Hills? And the broken sceptre pieces with the beam of light in the same?

    I know the beam of light is part of the Niuri starstone quest. Don't know if it has any other lore, but there's that at least.

    I'm about 97% sure that the Radiant Valley used to be a landmark room from the necromancy/devotion era. That was one of its two possible appearances based on which side was winning, and when the landmarks stopped, it stayed permanently in that form.
  • MelanthaMelantha Member Posts: 112 ✭✭✭
    Oh, how interesting! Thank you both for the answers.
