PostSubject: Phorphyria   Fri Sep 14, 2012 2:17 am

West of Broken Sea , in the far north of Aeria lies a formation of twenty or less isles , with hills and snowy mountains.
Accounts from both Elven and Man scholarship suggest there resides an isolated civilization , far away from the outside world.
The portion of the supposed site of the islands are themselfs supposed to be behind the Abyssal Mist that rounds a fair large portion of the sea , traveling trough it is impossibile , according to sailors , even pirates.
It is said that in ancient times , people of Pychecko landed on the isles before the Abyssal Mist where they found themselfs witnsesses to a tribal war between human-like being which they called Stromae and a race of unkown amphibians sentinent species.
As the explorers brought with themslefs their technology , they sided with the Stromae and with their aid , Stromae succesfuly downfalled the rival species which eventualy perished bound by the torments of war.
With the rest of the islands for themselfs , Stromae soon settled on them and began constructing cities over the villages of their rival species.

Centuries passed , the Stromae soon began to develop more advanced mathemathics and thus enforcing and building great cities and monuments dedicated to their gods and fellow Pycheko brethen.
They established their capital on their largest island , Phorphyria thus , in time , adopting the name for the whole civilization...but as the time passed , a mysterious thick mist ravaged their connection with their human brethen and soon isolating them from the rest of the world....for nearly 400 years.
Today , Phorphyria is facing devastating population issues and food distribution and thus , the elders of the civilization enforced a holy ritual in which two teen males or females fight to the death for the right to claim their ancestor`s weapons and armors.
These weapons are very dangerous and posses constant magical power that infulenced from harassing Aeria`s very magical source in them.

Lore : Phorphyrian civilization resides behind a thick mist named as "The Abyssal Mist" which prevents both Phorphyria and outside world from communicating.Due to this , Phorphyrians grew unaware of the outside world , enforcing their belief that Phorphyria is the only world.

Religion : While at first of their civilzation begining , Stromae adopted the common religion of Pycheko`s people but today the civilization is separated in religious sectors by the following:
Lunari , Solari , Samaritari and the neutral ones.
Lunari are the part of the population that represent the moon as the supreme deity and their ancestors , thus , every night , rituals are being held in the honour of Madolissa , the Celestal Blesser.
Solari are the part of the population that rever the sun as a source of insipartion and even a god amongst mere stars.Everyday , people gather occasionaly in piazzas to dance and celebrate the birth of Rifoften , the Solar god.
Samaritari are the people that still consider war as an art and everyday they train themselfs in arenas and occasionaly provide spectacles of true streight , bloody or not.Samaritari make the bulk of the civilization`s order and army.
The neutral Phorphyrians are those that still adopt the outside world`s religion and refuses to adress to the others , daily entering minor confilcts with the other religions around the civilization.

Military:Altough the numbers of militarists are slowly decreasing , Samaritari live in islands fortified with stone walls and towers , where inside these walls the military trainings occure , the daily routine.
The soldiers are nambed "Bo`Rahtu`Si" meaning "Dark ones" , these soldiers weld 11 -12 cubids long spears with heavy and gigantic shields carved with symbols.
They wear a helmet that hids their facial expression , their armor is as heavy as their shield and recruits spend 3 years training only with the armor.





Arhitecture and cities : The Phorphyrians benefit from large ammounts of stone deposits , quarries and gold mines.What they lack in resource is the food due to small fertile land.
The vast quantity of stone and quarry is used to build platforms which raise the building`s streets high above the terrain , on the platforms , they construct buildings from quarry or stone , rarely wood ( low social classes).
For religious places, they use the quarry and stone to build magnificent and great monuments , often Pyramids with lower levels.





As for their water transport , they have an unique system of double trail aqueducts that transport water from natural reserviors to the City`s fountains.
They have bridges extended over rivers to unite the isles togheter.As for the streets , they are higly closed and thus , to make the commerge around the civilization more quickly , ships transport food even from one point to another point on the same island.

On the highest point in the isles , where earth touches sky , resides an old , ancient temple of unknown arhitecture.Nobody made to the top of the temple due to ravaging wind storms and beacuse of the never ending winter on the top.
The temple is belived to be haunted with the spirits of angry gods , ready to unleash the most horribile things on Phorphyria.Of course , it is just a rumor....is it?



(If you like it maybe I can develop the lore more ^^)

MY GOD. When I re-read it I found 200000000000000 grammar issues :/

Also , if this lore gets integrated , I`ll use it in my character`s backstory :)

I would try refraining from making lore until you have played the server for at least a month. You don't even have an accepted character yet.

Besides the fact that your formatting is non-existent, the page is covered with typos, your lore contradicts or differs from set lore, and does not seem to add to the lore besides your own character's backstory, I am going to say no.

The reason is because I feel like you are trying to be speshul snoflak.

While I love the notably Ancient Greek spin on things you are presenting, perhaps you should try to present it within the current lore? Perhaps there is a place where this could fit, if you're willing to speak with a couple of the admins. = )

I really appreciate the intiative, I do, but I have to agree with Pho that one should put time and dedication into the server and its lore before starting to add to it. = )

I'm not saying no forever, but for now, I'm afraid I can't accept this. So I think that leans more towards a pending status than anything.

In the meantime, while you do learn the lay of the server, and how things work, perhaps try and add to the formatting and function of the thread? Couldn't hurt, and would certainly help. = )

I still think this should be integrated into Kerodil lore instead of Pycheko lore, because finding a group of savages in Kerodil feels way more likely, since they already exist there. Plus, while we like to help our players fit in and give opportunities for them to bring their ideas to the table, we're sort of out of room for any type of large landmass, island or not, which is why integrating this into a pre-existing one would be great. I think I mentioned that to you in the PM.

You also didn't have the reptilian species included in the first version... we actually have quite a few reptilian species for you to choose from. I suggest picking one of them, instead, since they already have lore (or will have it soon) and would be more easy to integrate.

Well, first, I'll wait and see what Blitz has to say. But the Kerodil idea has already received a welcoming, and I would recommend you go with it, instead.

Pycheko was feudal states with the technology of mud farmers 400+ years ago. highly unlikely. any kind of ship during that time would be no more than a fishing dingy or a primitive trading vessel

Quote :
common religion of Pycheko`s people
Arushyikans were mostly ignorant of Dieties in that time and didn't make up their own as well.

Kerodil it is.

Sorry Roby, but, you gotta rewrite it if you want it to work. Talk to Munroe.

Wow , why does everybody get so mad , I just posted it so the admins can guide me trought it , I did not say " HERE IS MY LORE , PUT IT IN UR LORE OR DIE , FAG HURR DURR".
As for the playing on server, gmod forribidens me beacuse it crashes everytime I try to start it up , i`m waiting for the next update.
And for an accepted character , I couldn`t get on server due to my gmod issue aaaand , I think I`ll wait till this lore can be altered and introducted so I can specify it in my char`s backstory when I`ll do one....
Aaand , I also notice you noticed that I have some good problems in Aeria`s lore , that`s beacuse I still getting it read to understand it , this lore was just to give an idea to admins and maybe work something togheter with me.

PM me your steam names , the admins , so I can contact you more often.


If an admin is somehow intersted in this lore , maybe we can both talk about it. IF not , then , sorry to waste time :/

try renaming your garrysmod folder and letting steam make a fresh copy from scratch?

Also, please uh, make a thread in Help and Support, this is not the place for this.
