Lore Questions: February (2018) (probably)

Postby Neus » Mon Feb 05, 2018 12:54 pm

This is a new topic for Lore Questions because the old one was about 26 pages. (No, I will never stop copying this part.) The format is roughly the same, but some guidelines;

1) Try and format your questions appropriately. As in, make it easy to read and answer.
2) Try and limit the number of questions you ask per thread. I don't mind answering them, but don't get crazy and ask me 20 things, especially if they require detailed answers.
3) Try to avoid asking extremely specific questions, such as 'Did anyone ever die of food poisoning in Cellsvich?'. Answering these is difficult, because not everything is set in stone, so giving a definitive answer on it not only restricts me in the future, but it might influence other players' character concepts that involve it.

That said, if you have any questions, you can post them in this thread! I will post answers at the end of the month/start of the next one.

Thanks! (And yes, if you had questions from the previous topic that I didn't answer before I closed it, you can post them here, but remember the formatting guideline.)

1. Had there been any cases of disease at all? Something that isn't a cold, a fever- something that you usually can get every day. Like an actual disease that killed someone?
I'm only asking if there had been case of disease that's very fatal because there's no medicine, or anything. Can't seem to find anything about it.

2. Considering that slavery is questionable, and tend to be legal in only one place: considering Law's End. How do people feels about slavery of Monster races instead, like Goblins, and snakemen for instance? Tarson tend to buy monsters off your hand, but had there been any attempt to use them for cheap labors?

3. How big can Ice wurms get? Are they just commonly dog-sized, or can they get into massively, terrifying size?
Hope, the Blacksmith in Lispool, mentioned Ice Wurms. So I want to know how big of a threat they can be.

4. Are there loan sharks in a place like Oniga, where gambling are legal? Or is there some kind of law against forcing the gambler to pay the debt?
- 4a. If no protection law, will they be safe if they escapes from Oniga to Sigrogana, or Chatauranga?

5. At this point, how much money had Hikari amassed with all these donations she've received?
- 5a. Is she actually selfish?

6. Is it possible to be apart of the Mage's Guild?

7. I can't find any informations regarding to Shaitan Madness. Lore blurb regarding to Phobos mentioned of Shaitan's Madness, and Hope don't provides much information. What happens if a Shaitan enters this Shaitan's "Madness"
7a. And how do the Church handles this "Madness", which grandly was cause of their mentality issue?

V2 -

8. Mercalan marriage. Any idea how procedure usually go? Just christian styled marriage? Any special feature that Mercala faith usually have in there?


9. Clarify this, Ereshkigal - the Goddess that House Damraye mentions her alot. Do they considers the Goddess the second coming of Zera, braving the labyrinth of Death itself? I figured out the answers. It is a yes.

Considering the politic. How do other houses feel about Ereshkigal, especially negative since they are very zealous about Zera.


10. How much, in term of economy, does Black Doors usually have on local villages, and or towns? Is it very good economy, because it mean burst of adventurers, and such?

11. Humans. Why do humans still remain? The benefit of being the Patron race means longer lifespan, and having divine protection of their God from the Corruption. But why do Human exists?
11a. Is it because many humans that remain have some kind of view similar to Kinu's? Like they see gods as worthless?

Is it possible that a person (more specifically, player character) can get dragged along with a BDP from wherever BDPs come from?

Random Thought I had:

When you have a fighting style that is mainly absorbing Focus and you are litterally draining your opponent to zero FP, and it so happens to be a Vampie.
1.) Would they feel an intense hunger afterwards?
2.) Would it even go so far that if you kill them in that state that they might ash?
3.)Or is the Focus simply already so converted into essence, that it matters nothing to them?

This question might sound strange at first, but I am serious.
4.) How does Tarson earn his money? All he does is paying, paying and paying. And even if he gets the money from Remedia, considering how many monsters he buys and probably needs to replace that would still be heavy losses he would make there just from that.

So about cuisines, let's take cream puffs for example. Given the fact that portals connecting different regions exist now. What is the likelihood that different cuisines such as the recipe for cream puffs, were spread from one region to the next where it is at least plausible that there are places and or restaurants in various areas that serve international cuisine such as cream puffs in each area?

Oh yeah and also. What does an actual Mercalan Sermon sound like? As in, what do priests preach when they preach about Mercala in all of her glory?

Smite me if this was already asked or clarified, but:

1. We know that spirits that a character holds (via the related talent) will be lost if they lose a fight. But for the sake of roleplay, what exactly causes the character to lose their spirits? Is it due to the user losing consciousness? The beat-down making them weak enough to lose their grip on the spirits? The spirits getting disappointed in the user and floating off?

[12:53:18 AM] Chaos: that's cruelty to animals
[12:53:20 AM] Chaos: you have to shoot it

Do monsters in BDP's have to eat? Do goblin-like enemies photosynthesize?
