Newsletter July 2017

Lusternia Gets a Facelift Website Facelift! Check out the new website. We've updated the entire look and feel which should be sleeker and easier to navigate around. Most especially, the new Portal page is an easy access interface to view in-game news, messages and logs. Unfortunately, we have not yet been able to resolve the artisanal/bardic section and therefore are pausing these contests until we come to an arrangement that works best for everyone. Note that we will probably combine the bardic contest with the library contest and keep it all in-game. Be sure to check out the audiobooks in ...

Trialante, the Untamed Muse

It was Avechary, 477 years after the Coming of Estarra, and the word in the Serenwilde was sparrows: Sparrows on the ground and sparrows in the trees and sparrows up in the sky. They sang a song that rang in the hearts of Serens who were present in the forest. Along with the sparrow song, there rose the lovely voice of a fae, and the songs' harmonies led Serens to begin to search for their source. Kerith Sweetpaw was the first to come upon Little Lleucu, a will-o-wisp fae, in the ruins of the former Spiritsinger Guildhall. The fae was ...

Battle for the Wheel

Hail Basin, I, Lebo Needles, have requested and been sanctioned to allow this report for the Order of Shallach to be seen by all. It is rather rudimentary; I am still getting used to writing reports, but I hope it suffices and informs anyone who could not be present in Lirangsha. Cordially, Lebo Needles Shallah's Squire Month: Dioni 475 CE Order Member: Squire Lebo Needles Business: Routine Visitation of Lirangsha As per our revived Codes, I, and my stead Snickerdoodle, made way to Lirangsha for the quarterly observation of the Heart of Shallah there.

Duum for the Humanistic League

In the month of Estar, 475 years after the Coming of Estarra, the cities and forests of the Basin of Life were visited by two humans by the names of Elsa Fallows and Constance Walker. They claimed to be members of the Lusternia Humanistic League, an organization they described as being devoted to research about humanity, human history, and human origins. Their goal was to find new topics of research for submission to the League. Elsa Fallows first approached New Celest, meeting Caleb, Skanylla, Kreon, and Tridemon. She asked them for leads on human populations or genealogies, explaining that she ...

When the Bells Toll in Magnagora

The Curse The bells tolled for midnight in Magnagora, hailing the arrival of the 22nd of Shanthin in the year 471, as the Crimson Lady sounded her horn with urgency, suddenly making way for the docks. Aboard the vessel, captain Yishka Feyranti was met by Geomancer Sabella, Shango d'Cente, and Avurekhos Feyranti, before other concerned citizens gathered to hear her words as well. Hearing that the skeletal captain operating the boat taking Magnagorans to and from the Spectre Isle appears to be missing and things upon the island itself are amiss, Magnagorans split into groups and set off to investigate ...

Mamaac the Melder and the Sword of Serenity

It was not long ago that Serenwilde was visited by the half-formed named Xarriv the Reaver, who had followed the memories of Charune, Lord of the Hunt across the Void and into the First World, wreaking havoc, and then was banished back to the Void by the Horned One Himself. And yet, mortal memory is short, and life is full of its daily troubles; many distressing events had occurred in northern forest in the short time since the banishing of Xarriv. It was no surprise, then, that questions on Xarriv's origins and whereabouts were cast aside while Serens attempted to ...

Gaudiguch – From the Ashes

STRANGER STRANGERS It was a quiet summer day in Avechary, 471, when strange happenings began in the City of Freedom, one of those insufferably hot days where all you want to do is curl up in a corner and nurse your hangover with a cold bottle of the next hangover. Dancers weren't dancing. Thinkers weren't thinking. Brawlers weren't brawling. Even the whores weren't whoring. Perhaps this opened the door to those sneaky up-to-no-gooders, providing them the perfect opportunity to nose about. As Letarne may tell you, they certainly looked as though they thought they could go about unnoticed, snooping and ...

Deception and Madness Unleashed

Chiku Swiftpad had never really been outside the Shanthmark Lodge. She was devoted to her studies, and more than a little determined to exceed the others in their meditations and their trials. It was a pleasant surprise to her, therefore, to be called before the Soothsayer Adaeze with a personal mission - and one that would take her far away from Shanthmark at that. Adaeze explained that the Lodge had been in possession of a box, or more specifically the parchment contained within it. None of them had ever been able to read more than a few words, for it ...

By the Power and Will of the Collective

Like so many things, it began with the celebration of successful innovation and well-deserved congratulations to the team involved in its construction. What could go wrong with a Resonance Tower that could broadcast directly into the minds of every citizen...? Then came the static... --- [ NOISE IN THE MACHINE ] -------------------- > Estar 19th, 472 CE: We heard some strange static earlier. Just a little glitch though, nothing to worry about. Sublime Opus Nelras and that new citizen, Halberdier Trueflight Iytha, checked on the new Crystal Resonance Tower and all was functioning as expected. Perhaps a minor miscommunication with ...

The Tale of the Black-Striped Warrior

In the wake of the marriage between the centaur elder Tokota and his beloved Adushoc, the Serenwilde found themselves embroiled in a mystery. Shadows grew, whispers murmured, and strange visions danced at the corners of one's eyes. At first, this occurrence was time: a minor ill omen that seemed to some like the awakening of an ancestor or other unknown spirit. However, as the autumn days grew longer and colder, these signs turned exceedingly worse. Indeed, several days past before a shriek cut through the communetop shops, forcing Aeldra Ladyn, Selenity Sweetpaw, and Anita and Ejderha Strongleaf to race to ...

The Turning Tides of New Celest

During the month of Tzarin in the year, 471 ACE for reasons still not known the Tide Lord Murlough of the Red Tide began expressing displeasure that the city of New Celest worshipped and venerated the Supernals while knowing nearly nothing of the Tide Lords and often ignoring them. Daebach was the first to come to the aid of Lord Murlough trying to appease the Tide Lords vowing that the people of Celest cared for them deeply and defended them with their lives, but Murlough was stubborn and would not be swayed from his conviction and insistence that while the ...

Factions Roundtable!

Now that all of new guilds have been released, I thought it would be nice to give a little closure and behind-the-scenes insight to our overall process for both the events themselves and the development of factions. I wrote up a couple questions and nudged all of the admin who helped out to give their answers. Enjoy!Why did you choose the guild-ending event that you ended up doing?CelestWeiwae: I wanted to give Celest a reason to see that the current layout of guilds wasn't working, but I also didn't want a full repeat of Old Celest blowing up. The main ...
