Re: Small Ideas - AIN'T NO COMBAT THREAD
To make it easier, I would like to see PATH GO Dash/Sprint/Gallop be toggles. As in, I toggle gallop on, and any time I PATH GO it automatically tries to Gallop if able. Yes you could probably do this in a system, but would still be a time saver for some people.

More Bene art.
This was a lovely surprise from
, he called it Benoli. I giggled.
Re: Thank you!
I am VERY THANKFUL for the recent shapeshifter hood changes. Thank you, Tiur!
Re: Thank you!
After some long days, I was finally encouraged to make the final push...
Closing your eyes, you begin to concentrate upon a distant, focal point. Just faintly, you suddenly feel the nuances of the shifting essence within you. Tilting your head skywards, you take in a desperate gasp of breath to relieve the growing pain in your chest. However, it does not ease off but rather, continues to climb. The essence within you roils furiously, eliciting a sharp, agonizing pain to the center of your chest before exploding outwards, sending a burning wave of force rippling down your limbs. Before your very eyes, you see the structure of your body change and alter as the energy sweeps downwards. Feeling abruptly contented and filled deep inside, you finally realise that you have embraced your new form as Yeleni.
A visible ripple of energy flashes across the skies above, celebrating the ascension of Seraphina to Yeleni.
So many thanks to
and all the rest of you lovely people xoxo
Re: Drawings of Aetolia
Eleanor drew this excellent drawing of an unkempt Zaila and
! With just some generic pose/personality suggestions, she did a stellar job and made a very *them* picture.

Re: Zaila Tenor
This isn't a bump so much as it is a shameless ripoff of Aishia's art posting system.
For Zaila's earliest look, you can go back to the first post in this thread! I have it hidden under spoilers!
but for here - screw 'dem spoilers!
I'll try to put these in relatively chronological order with explanations! I have had more art than what will be here, this is just what I have available on this computer. If I find and add more, I'll post again!
Mint Panacotta Zaila Chibi - This was her earliest formal dress look! From back in her late teens in Spinesreach. Art by Eleanor
This would be a late teens/early twenties Zaila shortly after joining Enorian the first time: showing off the scarring she usually keeps very well covered by clothing. Art by Eleanor
These three are from the second big Zaila style shift. This would have started a few months after she joined Enorian and broke up with her fiance-at-the-time. (which I started calling Punk Rock Zaila after how Tacitus described her at the time.) The previous three were all drawn by Eleanor!
This is a sketch from the same time period, but after she got endgame finally (somewhere in her mid-twenties). I decided the most Zaila version of an endgame chance would be changing the word "buxom" in her description to "voluptuous" (I made her boobs even more ginormous)There was a less-forum-appropriate version that this was the concept sketch for: Zaila's super-packed bra (she stowed everything in there) bursting open against the strain and random items flying EVERYWHERE! This art by Temix! (not aetolian)
(I might be easily amused)
Same period, but Zaila has put on some weight post-endgame. Started focusing more on her music hall (Two Tenors' Talent Tabernacle) and commercial enterprise after she was got a shop. Art by Eleanor
Clearly in the same period, but I'm not exactly sure when! I thought it captured a Zaila expression so well! Timeless! Art by
This was based on a poster
designed to advertise a Zaila-Themed drink in her shop, I thought it turned out totally awesome! Drawn by Eleanor
After a handful of IC years in her Punk Rock phase, Zaila decided she needed to get back into shape and get more actively into fighting. She was terrible at it, but she went into it stylistically whole heartedly. This was her look through her late twenties to early thirties. Chibi by Eleanor. Full body Art by
During that phase, Zaila left Enorian and got married - pictured here in her wedding gown. This was around the first time she joined Bloodloch in her early thirties. Full body Art by
While in Bloodloch, she eventually ditched the combat gear for that old formal dress she had sitting around.
And just for fun, I had Zaila's then-toddler daughter Galena also drawn up Art by
Zaila's rogue period came to a close in her late 30s after she got cursed with diseased flesh-eating barnacles that she had to get removed. This was a picture of while the damage was freshly healing
Art by Eleanor
A fairly self-conscious, private and vain creature, Zaila started wearing a veil to cover this like she typically covered the rest of her scarring out of public view. After rejoining Enorian, she got this fancy veil and started wearing it and then went Full Enorian on her outfit as well. This is her mid thirties. Art by Eleanor
Same period shameless pinup drawing! Art by
While in Enorian, Zaila rejoined Omei's congregation and and an orderite brought Zaila back into order. Then the Jox conflict started brewing and Omei started logging in again, saw Zaila, and demanded that Zaila stop wear that veil OR ELSE. So here are two different Artists' interpretations of Zaila's messed up looking, scarred-over face!
Art by Eleanor
Art by Artist I Need to Track Down
Naturally, I had to get her full body and chibi versions made veilless, now
She went through another combat-education phase, and this captures her general disposition during most of this period up through leaving Enorian and joining Duiran.
This is the most recent Zaila that I believe I have! Seen here with her Wyvern she calls Sandy (not his real name, obvs) that was her wedding gift from Kalak. She demanded he get her a real gift since he proposed with a "scrumptious cake". This was during her settling into Duiran phase in her early 40s where she was happy again - be it for ever so brief a time.
WHEW - lots of photos! Time to get an updated one!
Re: Ankyrean Archives: The Podcast
Highlight for me was
attempting to do a Scottish accent and then bailing on it almost immediately.
Re: Ankyrean Archives: The Podcast
It's a bit weird to hear someone not involved with Sunder at all say that it came from Source. Jory built it up from a system he made for a different IRE game and adapted it to be used for Aetolia.
As far as the episode itself, having a list of topics pre-set to talk about may help to curb down the amount of random offshoots that you get. It seemed to be more stream of consciousness than anything, but if that's the intent then feel free to ignore!
Re: Announce post #3028: The Terry terror is gone!
I just want to say and share how absolutely adorable the prize I picked is. It's SO cute and fluffy!!
It's an oversized jumping spider named Itse.
This charming jumping spider is enormous compared to its kin, despite being roughly the size of a medium dog. Rather than the nightmare-inducing product one might expect of an oversized spider, this slightly squishy-looking pet is instead eminently adorable. Fuzzy, light gray hairs look almost like pettable fur, and while it has more than enough eyes, the two most prominent are huge doe-eyes approximately where eyes 'should' be. Two large pedipalps guard its mouth, but their movement also reminds of a squirrel anxiously gnawing food, or an excited child covering their face.
An oversized jumping spider looks weak and feeble.
It can only be worn in the following location: shoulder.
It has adorable delivery messages!
You slip a red rose inside a carrier tube and fasten it to an oversized jumping spider's body. The spider swiftly departs to deliver the item.
With gravity defying leaps, an oversized jumping spider enters from the northwest.
Benedicto opens a carrier fastened to an oversized jumping spider and retrieves a red rose from inside it.
With two small hops and a giant leap, an oversized jumping spider bounces to the south.
With gravity defying leaps, an oversized jumping spider enters from the north.
He's still figuring out the right directions but he still made it to
in the end! Throwing a ball for it isn't different from other pets but he fetches it with adorable hops!
So much love for this and the admins! Thank you
