Lore Questions: October (2021)
(10-13-2021, 12:17 AM)Shadbase Wrote: One big dodo raid questionline:

What exactly happens when a Doriad is born? Like, we know -how- they're born, but do they just... form all right there, 0 to 100?
      - Do they 'live' before then as a forest creature, or the tree they come from?
      - Do they learn the basics of the world from the Akashic Record, or similar?
      - Is the process different for every Doriad?
      - Does a doriad -choose- to be born, or are they just thrust into existance?

1) Yes. One day a Doriad simply steps out of the tree.
2) Not really.
3) They have a basic understanding of the world, but from what isn't known.
4) Not extremely.
5) They are simply born.

- (Why can't Corrupted become Vampires?) Corruption trumps everything, more or less. Nothing special would happen if they completed the ritual.

In particular, I'm wondering if you could expand on 'Corruption trumps everything' at all?

For example, you say here that they couldn't become a vampire, so does this mean that it can't be overwritten by a God's blessing? Or could a Glykin, in theory, go and become a Corrupted since it'd 'trump' the blessing of Glycon?

Correct. Corruption can't be overwritten by anything. Generally, only humans can become corrupted - in normal circumstances God-touched races cannot be corrupted.

If Chimera can safely eat undead, are they immune to food poisoning? To what extent can they eat typically inedible materials?

1) Yes, homunculi follow the same basic shell construction.
2) Generally, yes. It's hard to define an 'extent' - they can eat most things.

If they can, what kind of sicknesses can they get? Are certain races immune to cancers, but not immune to viral/bacterial infections?

1) Homunculi and Doriad can get sick. Mechanations cannot.
2) Assume most that normal races can get.

- Outside of BDPs, where they normally manifest.
- Their relationship with mortal races or other monsters.
- Intelligence level
- If they have keener senses, like a dog would.
- Tactics, if any.

1) Barghests are basically ghost dogs that hunt the living.
2) Generally they haunt forests at night if the forest is particularly haunted.
3) Animalistic.
4) Yes.

Why did the Church choose Lispool as their headquarters, and did Mercala or the current Voice at the time have any say in it?
The Church was established in year 40, though it is unclear when the legend of Kraken's dying breath supposedly cursing the entire continent of Lordwain took place: did these two events coincide (assuming it actually happened), or was Lordwain still more of a tundra or a verdant landscape back when the Church took dominion of Lispool (and by extension the entire continent)?

When I eventually get back to working on the history pages, I'll detail this stuff, so please wait until then.

- Would Fate the watcher will come back to watch us on our daily lives by now what would be at the present?
- If so? Would some people acknowledges it even today?
- And also able to visit when near-death like the usual?

No, SL1 lore doesn't have anything to do with SL2.

Probably not in Cellsvich, no.

Does it see with its eyes or through something akin to tremorsense? It looks like it has a sort of spine in the back, so is it vaguely skeletal in appearance?

1) It's an ice elemental, essentially, yes.
2) Yes.
3) It generally detects things with tremorsense, though it has some limited sight.
4) Yes.
