Site Updates


7 November, 2018
We've only been open 3 days now and already things needed updating! Below is a list of the changes we have made or areas we've expanded on!
  • Guidebook: Updated World Lore information to include a what life is like inside the bubble section for our Naturals
  • Guidebook: Slightly expanded the deity section (though more will be revealed as we go)
  • Guidebook: Added information about praying at shrines
  • Coding: Added information about shortcodes (can be found here: Shortcodes
  • Guidebook: Added information about children's ages and levelling
  • Guidebook: Added the NPC account
  • Quests: Gave an example of what a PQ should look like/how it should be run
  • Threads: Added auto-archiving to threads; once your thread is complete, click the 'Archive' button to automatically archive it!
  • Threads: Auto-drafts are now enabled! HOWEVER! There is a bit of an interesting side-effect. The system will auto-save your post every 60 seconds. If you hit 'preview' during that time, the system will revert your post back to whatever it saved it as the previous 60 seconds ago. So keep in mind when hitting preview it's probably best to copy your text so that you aren't put back 60 seconds in time.

Added these two things to the guidebook:

Training: Twice a season characters may train to increase their stats. A training thread must 1. use the {training} prefix, must include one other character, and must have 4 attack/defense posts each. Regardless of who the 'winner' is, both participants will receive +1 stat points to be distributed to either strength, dexterity, or endurance Though threads do not have to be finished in the same season in which they are started, the stat point cumulation applies to the season in which they were started

You can always create an organization. If you would like to establish an ongoing group that has a goal or focus (bounty hunters, mercenary, thieves, etc), we'd encourage you to do so! You must have a place to meet (requires a PQ) and at least 3 members to be considered an organization. Once you have done this, contact an admin to set up the information for you. Organizations will receive one magical item per season to be used as a reward for active member participation.

Added this about changing races (accepted to either attuned or ascended)

Only an Accepted may change their race (either becoming an Attuned or an Ascended, although hybrids are possible with other races - see below) and must complete the change for free prior to level 3. After level 3 there is a cost associated with the change.
In order to change your race as an Accepted you must:
  • Have the required MP (free for levels 1-3. After that, the MP required is 150 x your characters level (so level 4 requires 600MP)
  • Visit a shrine of the Old Gods (to become an Attuned) or visit a shrine of the New Gods (to become an Ascended)
  • Pray for the change (depending on your character there may be additional requirements to prove your willingness to change your race! These are determined IC.)
Your current stat distribution will remain the same, however you will trade your Accepted rewards (such as magical items) for the race-specific benefits of the race you are becoming (i.e., will gain animal shifts as an Attuned up to your current level, or sunlight resistance and upgrades as an Ascended)

Hybrid species are possible. In order to become a hybrid you must have a hybrid pass. Once the pass is used your level will be temporarily split and you will have to go back and satisfy the race-specific requirements for your new race. You may not level up your 'original' level until you have reached the same level in your new race (i.e., if you are a level 4 Abandoned and have become a hybrid with an Attuned, you must complete all of the levelling requirements for levels 1-4 of being an Attuned before you can level overall again).

Discord announcements, since not everyone is on discord!



05/17/2019 - Shrine update

Good evening, guys and dolls! A quick (but important) announcement regarding shrines. :3
As the site is growing, Odd and I are feeling the pressure reply to shrine visits in a timely manner. For this reason, we are changing the frequency of prayer threads.

We want to make sure we can give you guys the best response possible, and when there are a LOT to get through, it's not always easy. You can find the updated rules about shrines in both the Guidebook and the Rules, but here they are as well for your convenience!

Guidebook: You may only pray at a shrine twice a season, if the thread is not specifically intended to satisfy levelling requirements (this is subject to admin discretion). Keep in mind that communing with the gods should be looked upon reverently, and is not something which should be abused. Your original prayer thread must be completed before praying again. Failure to do so or repeated abuse of shrines will result in IC consequences for your characters!

Rules:

A character may only pray at a shrine twice a season if the thread is not being used to satisfy levelling requirements.



05/22/2019 - Fae update

REMINDER

Even if you have been given OOC permission to post in the Fae boards, remember that they do not like-non fae. There are some exceptions to this rule of course, but until some sort of agreement has been made between the groups, they do not want you there



06/02/2019 - Training thread update


Just a note that the Training prefix is ONLY for fighting / training. This is what gets you the +1 to str or end. You can train/teach people in regular threads for MP (training them in something you're an expert in) but not for stats. The guidebook says,

Training: Twice a season characters may train to increase their stats. A training thread must use the {training} prefix, must include one other character (not belonging to you), and must have 4 attack/defense posts each. Regardless of who the 'winner' is, both participants will receive +1 stat points to be distributed to either strength, dexterity, or endurance. Although threads do not have to be finished in the same season in which they are started, the stat point accumulation applies to the season in which they were started.


I'll let you keep all stats gained this way in the past because of the confusion.



06/03/2019 - Accepted Character update

THIS IS AN IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING THE ACCEPTED RACE

Since COTF began, Odd and I wanted a way to make sure Accepted characters were just as cool and fun to play as any other character, even though they didn't have 'magic powers' so to speak.

To that end, we created the WIllpower ability. However, we've noticed that this ability doesn't really see much limelight, and it's not easy to coordinate in a thread. And so... we've changed it. Significantly.

INTRODUCING YOUR NEW ACCEPTED ABILITY: CHANNELLING

All humans, called the Accepted, are born with (or immediately acquire in the case of portalling-in) basic channeling. Because of their beloved-status, Accepteds can use a power called channeling to call out a minor deity or god (depending on level) to assist during times of struggle, danger, conflict, etc. Basic-channeling will result in a genie, sprite, or other lesser deity depending on location to appear when called upon. Upgraded-channeling allows the accepted to call upon Frey, Safrin, or Ludo. Mastered-channeling gives the opportunity (decided by dice roll) to potentially call down Vi, Mort, or Rae.

This ability can only be used once per season and is up to admin discretion. It should be used in times of actual need, and is not meant to be used simply for conversational interactions

If you have any questions at all about this, please feel free to fire them to the Helpdesk - and thank you, all of you, for helping to continue making the site as fun as it is. :B



14/6/2019 - Challenging update
We added a new way of challenging leadership: Trial by combat! Fight! Die (probably)! Read all about it on the leadership page! https://cotf-rpg.com/misc.php?page=leadership
