Lore Questions: June (2018)

Postby Neus » Fri Jun 01, 2018 9:57 am

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.)

Now, before starting making questions, I'll note to others that players are allowed to choose what opinions their characters are going to take, and that even NPC vampires can have different opinions than the majority.

*Burp*- With that, lets begin!
Can we have some info as to how Vampires work with each other?
a)How elitist are they when it comes to culling inexperienced vampires?(For example, will they give a newcomer some leeway if they do something dumb, or will they kill him?)
b)How rare is it for one to encounter Huggessoa personally?
c)Are there any written/unwritten rules between vampires that haven't been mentioned yet?
d)How do vampires learn to use silvermists?s (IE:Is it Instinct, or do other Vampires frequently tutor others as how to make it?)
e)Is essence any good for spellcasting?

1.) Are the statues of memory seen within the colossal tower purely a gameplay element or can they serve as some narrative use?

2.) How are they created? Does it require something or someone powerful?

3.) Do other towers besides the colossal tower exist across the world?

1)Will male children of a Wyverntouched and a Naga be Wyverntouched, or whatever race the wyverntouched is a halfbreed of?
2)Can a Wyverntouched be born of Wyverntouched parents, both the mother and the father? The baby would technically still be half-wyvern.
3) Are Wyverntouched eggborn?
4) Can Wyvern's speak in their natural form?
5) Do bot male and female wyverns breed with humans?
6) Can Wyverntouched venom have different side effects than one another?

Here's some Wyvern related answers to some of your questions since they've been previously asked.


1)Will male children of a Wyverntouched and a Naga be Wyverntouched, or whatever race the wyverntouched is a halfbreed of?

Wyverntouched can only be made with direct involvement from a Wyvern. So this case would result in a human.

Can a children of a Wyverntouched and another race, result in Wyverntouched? Or is the only way to concede a Wyverntouched is by getting laid with a disguised Wyvern?

No, a Wyverntouched is only created by a wyvern and a non-wyvern.



2)Can a Wyverntouched be born of Wyverntouched parents, both the mother and the father? The baby would technically still be half-wyvern.

No.

So if two Wyverntouched went at it, the child would just be human?

The child might have some physical features of a wyverntouched but they won't be a true wyverntouched.



3) Are Wyverntouched eggborn?

While not directly stated, I think it can be inferred that, between the fact that Wyverntouched are far more humanoid than wyvern-like and judging from answers to other Wyverntouched questions, a Wyvern mother would birth the Wyverntouched while they were still 'human' and not lay an egg and a non-Wyvern mother would just give birth normally.


5) Do both male and female wyverns breed with humans?

Yes.

And I feel like this has been asked before, but only male Wyverns can successfully.. 'mingle' with humans, right?

A female could as well! Unlike SL1 wyverns, we don't know how long SL2 wyverns could become humans.

I know you answered that once somewhere, but it's not findable in Lore questions so Again:

1.)Are Bandits in the BDPs real people ICly or nah?, and should we probably more or less ignore the Mechanic part of it with it's BDP Bandit Dens?

To add onto Shujin's question.

1. If the Bandits ARE people, then do they simply disperse once the BDP vanishes?

1a. Would the Bandits not be prone to infighting with the other monsters then, if they weren't part of whatever hivemind the BDP uses to keep that from happening?

2. If the Bandits are MONSTERS, are they similar in composition to whatever race they were created as? I.E. organs, skin, bones, racials, etc. Or do they just dissipate or something upon death.

Throughout my duration of playing the game, I always thought that it was weird that there were plenty of signs and the oracle cards used for contracts. With that being said; What is the literacy rate of Sigrogana and its citizens, as well as how literate are the citizens compared to the other civilizations like Alstalsia and Karaten?

1) When someone is inflicted by void poisoning, and dies due to it, do they have a soul that is directed to Lazarus, or is their fate just an empty nothingness? Do souls die / cease to exist with the body under the effects of void poisoning?

2) When you're affected by void poisoning with no hope left, when Mercala cannot help you anymore, does transforming to a Lich give you a second chance? Does becoming a vampire? Does becoming any specific type of corruption?

3) If you kill yourself, or are killed while affected by void poisoning, if the cause of death is not the poisoning, (assuming the answer to the previous question is you lose your soul / spirit to the void) does your spirit live on forever? Does it just cease to exist straight away, if not, or can a spirit still continue through the stages of void poisoning when it's deceased?

4) Can you get void poisoning from Majistra? (I know it would be super duper rare if so, but I mean "is the chance of it happening above 0%, even if like 0.01% or something?")

5) Can you train to minimise the risks of void poisoning when using void magic, or is the chance one that never changes probability? If you can minimise the risks, how difficult is it, and how much of your life would you have to dedicate to doing so to get desirable results?

1- A lore blur says that "Unprotected use of the Void can cause Void Poisoning". Is there 'really' a method of using it safely, or is this only limited to Majistra's method?

2- Is Void Pollution a mess created only exclusively by Black Bolt, or can you ICly choose to generate it on will?

3- How long does Void Pollution take to naturally sap away the environment's focus and degrade?

4- Assuming Void Pollution a significant hazard, what happens when someone sticks around it for too long? Is it deadly?

5- Is Void Pollution strong enough to destroy the environment? Such as kill plants, poison water, etc...

6- Can you use Void Energy to enhance and power potions and make a more 'physical' version of Black Elixir?

7- Can a Void Magic specialist develop a way to slightly reduce the chances of contracting Void Poisoning with their Voidveil for a more constant usage of their magic?

8- Does Nullstone protection help on reducing the chances, if anything?

9- Last one. Which one of those two options is more plausible to roleplay a voidgate teleportation? (Can be both, if applicable.)

(PS: No Soras were harmed on option A.)
(PS²: Just kidding, they were.)
