Year in Review: 2015

Good times and bum times, I’ve seen them allAnd, my dear, I’m still here! These Stephen Sondheim lyrics run through my head as I think about this improbable project called Lusternia. While the notion itself was fantastic that I would create a new online game, at no time did I look forward and imagine I’d…

I Am The Vanguard Of Your Destruction

I am deathly allergic to all forms of improvisation, spontaneity, and fun. So when I logged in to Lusternia on the morning of the thirteenth to cries of “hey, who is taking the last dream god?”, and I looked and saw which role still needed filling, and then said, “well, I guess I can if…

Second Hand Shoes

We all know that sometimes, when a Divine returns after a long time away, they’re not quite the same. We all talk about it – though we pretend we’re not, and do it behind closed doors. In our community there is a taboo against questioning whether the Divine you’re interacting with now is played by…

“What is Elf on a Shelf, anyway?”

One fateful day off, as I sat in front of my computer with a steaming cup of coffee, it dawned on me – Elf on a Shelf is a terrifying, horrible concept that has further polluted the beautiful idea of the holiday season. What mad, commercialism-driven fiend developed this evil toy that watches people from…

Notes on Suicide Prevention

It is difficult to discuss suicide.

In the…

Kate von Roeder, formerly Visaeris, is dead. Many of you are aware from the forum threads. And now, I find myself with the second post this year about suicide. Again, someone I knew. Fantastically talented, passionate, willful, always brilliant and interesting. Kate epitomized some of the best and worst qualities, but she never did it…

Good Gods Gone Bad

If there’s one thing everyone has an opinion about, it’s how a Divine should behave. You learn this almost immediately as an admin. Be aggressive and vocal in your org, but don’t be too commanding or too opinionated. Be friendly and encouraging, but don’t be too snuggly. Be a visible presence to prove that you’re…

The Enchantress and the Silver Lady face off in Boston

It happened suddenly. The skies darkened slowly, the subtleness of Drocilla’s touch upon the lands causing the air itself to become denser with Her will as She arrived in Boston. Noting the change immediately, Lisaera arrived on the scene to protect Her beloved city (yes, city, because sadly Boston isn’t a commune – just go…

The kind of work a patron does

It’s been a few months since I threw on the silver robes and started livening up the place with storm clouds and moonfire. By and large, I’m loving every second of it. The players of Serenwilde never cease to amaze me with their creativity and their passionate responses to every kind of stimuli. Were they…

Divine Relationship(ping)

Isune has always been a romantic. In her first incarnation in Celest, one of her most memorable actions was swooning over Lacostian, a wise and handsome god of the Third circle. Did he ever share those feelings? Or was it merely platonic? These questions were never truly answered when Lacostian vanished from the Basin of…
