Lore Questions: May (2017)

Postby Neus » Mon May 15, 2017 10:15 am

This is a new topic for Lore Questions because the old one was about 26 pages. 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- Why is Ki Awoken's aura red colored, if Ki is seen as blue or golden most of the time? Is that blood mixed with Ki?

2- Can Ki be shared in a non-healing way? (Such as, to empower a friend's attack, RP-wise.)

Dragon Ball Z Questions, Part 2

Time to start this shitshow again.

1) You stated in last month's questions that Ki is much more flexible compared to magic, and how much you can create your own attacks varies in difficulty, but is generally easier. Just how easy would it be for an above-average practitioner, then?

2) How long would one have to train for to be considered as a master of Ki?

3) Is there such as thing or phenomenon as being born with a high level of Ki, or a natural aptitude with manipulating Ki?

4) Are combined attacks (i.e. Bros. Kamehameha, Family Kamehameha, Father-Son Kamehameha, Father-Son Galick Gun, etc) possible?

5) In last month's questions, you said Ki barriers are impossible. Then, what exactly is Body of Isesip?

6) How exactly does Serpent Strike work, in terms of Ki manipulation?

7) Is it possible to sense out other Ki users?

8) Just how painful and stressing on the body is Ki Awoken?

9) Last month's responses gave us the answer that strong emotion can boost the power of Ki. How overwhelmingly powerful would rage or grief have to be in order to trigger a dramatic power increase in a Monk?

10) Hypothetically, if a Monk had a power level as per DBZ rules, what would it be, destiny dual Monk and not?

EDIT: 11) Taking a break from the DBZ shitshow for a moment. Would someone missing a limb who would be undergoing the Vampire ritual regain their missing limb upon becoming a Vampire? As in, would someone without an arm prior to becoming a Vampire regain it?

EDIT2: 12) Do Vampires bleed any slower than normal?

13) In light of the Reapers coming very soon, how long do Reapers live, and where do they come from to emerge out of Lazarus?

Is a demon capable of getting back the soul of someone? Even if they were taken by a God?

If so, what would the price be for such a trade off?

The material used to make a Mechanation, would it effect the abilities it has? Such as a Mechanation made using Galdric is faster, due to it being made of lighter materials. But the main question is, if a Mechanation is made of Etherium, would they, in an RP sense, be able to regenerate like a weapon would?

I imagine, it being a Mechanation, it would take longer, instead of it being instant, but that's my opinion.

Are extraplanar creatures inhabiting BDPs restricted to that BDP? If so, why can I bash them over the head, take them prisoner, and drag them out to Sigrogana without issue?

A few Youkai seem to exist natively on Sigrogana, without a summoner (Firefoxes, for instance). Is there a reason for this, or is it just reused assets (i.e they're different creatures in actuality, despite looking identical)? If they are extraplanar creatures on Sigrogana, how did they get here?

How is the container for the Llarian Scar hooked up to the body of the Mechanation? How does the scar ultimately interface with the body?

Has the Majistra family made any attempts (successful or otherwise) to get their portals working across planes?

Come to think of it, how much research has actually been done concerning other planes of existence?

There is a mage NPC in the tavern in Cellsvich every now and then, who mentions Karaten being "on the verge of a breakthrough", although he's extremely vague about it. Is this past rumors simply referring to the Mechanations, or something else?

I know the question on ages for each race has been answered, but there are some that were left out of the last time.

Humans live around 80 years typically.
Kaelensia typically live about 1.5x longer than humans. (120 years typically)
Corrupted typically live about 1.3x longer than humans. (104~ years typically)
Vampires and Elves live a looooong time; Vampires can live indefinitely, and no one's actually seen an Elf die of old age.
Zerans live about twice as long as humans. (160 years typically)
Wyverntouched live about 1.2x longer than humans. (96 years typically)
Glykin can live about twice as long as humans. (160 years typically)
Mechanations can exist indefinitely, as long as they are properly maintained.
Redtails live about 1.5x longer than humans. (120 years typically). However, some tales say that Redtails can live forever by stealing the luck of other mortals, which usually leads to that mortal's demise soon after. (Could this be true? Maybe, but recall what others say about a certain other race that isn't actually them...)

I don't see Hyattrs in the list.
My question is, if a Human and a Kaelensia were to mate and have kids together, would the child have a mixed life span of both?
A human lives 80 years and a Kaelensia lives 120 years, would that child from them live to be 100? You should know how I got to the 100 for years and if it works that way, would the characters born of these age as slowly as both races?

1) Do the gods have servants, excluding their mortal worshipers, beyond Mercala's Shine Knights?
2) If so, do they range greatly in power? For example, Mercala having other servants much stronger than Shine Knights? Or is it more of a 'some gods have their own take on Shine Knights'?
3) If yes to 2, do any known hierarchies exist among said servants to any god? Are some of the most powerful servants known and perhaps revered in some religions, particularly in Mercala and Zera worship?

When was Sun's Ichor founded, and when was it denounced?

8) 40 years or so. It's mentioned the children of the original Sun's Ichor are rumored to be running around and playing at vampire hunting, so it would be around that timeframe. That would also make the Church Knights a '40 years or so' order, since they were established after the Sun's Ichor was denounced.

4) Can you clarify whether you meant around year 40 or so, or 40ish years ago/before the start of SL2?

What exactly is Brain Food? I've had a few theories of it being jello, kraboid claws, something with fish bones, etc. Never sure what it was though. Of course, it's probably only very loosely IC anyway, but I've always been curious.

How are books produced? I mean how are their contents copied? Are tomes made in a different manner? Scribes, Monks, Enchantment magic, Magic pens, some type of Chataran Steam based printing press? I assume mass production but that might just be a game play abstraction, along with how easy it is to make the books themselves.
