Deep in the primeval forest, lays a castle that has long since been forgotten by the races of man, Vampires, Elves, and all other lesser folk. This castle was once a beautiful gleaming white utopia of ivory stone, with the crystal shrine in back as it's shining crown jewel. Even an outsider could acknowledge it's fine workmanship in what remains of it's walls. But, now it has fallen into ruin. It's walls over grown with moss and brush. To an outsider, it would appear to have been abandoned, centuries ago, but is very much inhabited, and in fact, thriving! The moss has in truth been allowed to grow, acting as natural decoration and the brush has in truth, been cultivated. It's towers have been deliberately rebuilt around trees, roofs torn down, and it's interior terraformed, all to give it a more wild and natural feel to it, to suit it's savage inhabitants.
The Alpha lords, Ladies, and their immediate families each lead the 8 lesser Icewolf packs, but they themselves all make up the 9th ruling pack. And, it is from this castle, that that their leaders rule supreme over all of Avnov. The castle's true name has long since been forgotten over the centuries. Renamed for it's overgrowth, It is now only known as "Castle Ire", The Emerald Castle.
Note:Note: the directional key up in the corner is not wrong. The castle faces East, with a lake right at it back, on the western side. But, all the games from which I took the tiles and sprites to make this have their castle entrances facing toward the viewer, which from a bird's eye view, would be south. So I rotated the directional key. Also, the pink areas are blank spaces I have not filled in, because that was the limit of my creativity. I Just can't figure out what to put there. If anybody has any ideas and wants to try finishing this, feel free to download it and try your luck. and please send your modified version to me. If I like it, I'll use it and give you props.
Note: Special thanks to Nintendo, and Squaresoft. This castle was made using the overall frame of both versions of Hyrule Castle from The Minish Cap, spliced together, and re-tiled using tiles and sprites that are mostly from the Saiken Densetsu games, and some designs of my own making, such as the Celtic markings in the stone.
ANCIENT AND MAGICAL ICEWOLF DEVICES
Moon Crystal and Crystal torches:
Long ago, the Lycan ancestors of the Icewolves were able to imbue crystal to absorb the permeating excess lunar energy of Lycans and their kin, give off light. Some of them require a blast of lunar energy to activate, while others activate just from being in close proximity to one with Lycan blood. Others will activate when exposed to moonlight. They come in various types with various level of light ranging from nearly blinding, to a soft glow. these crystals are commonly used to serve as torches around the castle.
Icewolves live at one with nature and as such will also use dead wood with florescent mushrooms growing on it for lamps. Normally, these fungi wouldn't be able to generate enough light to do so, but through the use of Druid shamanism, they have been adapted to also feed off of the excess lunar energy of an Icewolf, to give of stronger light.
1. FOR THE SAKE OF IMMERSIVE ROLE PLAYING, THE USUAL GUILD AND FORUM DIRECTORY ARE NOT TO BE USED. THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY INTO CASTLE IRE, AND THAT IS THROUGH THIS LINK. http://www.gaiaonline.com/guilds/viewtopic.php?page=1&t=24688873#371968861
ALSO, PLAYERS MUST USE THE LINKS GIVEN IN EACH AREA'S DESCRIPTION IN EACH THREAD'S VERY FIRST POST TO GET WHERE THEY WANT TO GO, GOING FROM THREAD TO THREAD, AS IF YOU ARE TRAVELING ALONG A REAL PATH. THE PLAYER MUST ALWAYS MAKE A POST IN WHAT EVER THREAD THEY ENTER, EVEN IF THEY ARE MERELY PASSING THROUGH. THIS WILL GIVE OTHER PLAYERS THE CHANCE TO INTERACT WITH YOU, AND YOU CAN INTERACT WITH THE ENVIRONMENT.
2. IF A PLAYER IS ON A THREAD AND SEES THAT ANOTHER PLAYER HAS POSTED LESS THAN AN HOUR AGO AND IS STILL ONLINE, THEY MAY REPLY TO TO THE OTHER PLAYER'S POST TO INTERACT WITH THEM AND SEND THEM INSTANT MESSAGE TO GET THEIR ATTENTION AND LET THEM KNOW THEY ARE INTERACTING WITH THEM. THEY MAY THEN, INTERACT FOR UP TO A DAY. IF THE PLAYER SEES THAT THE OTHER PLAYER'S POST WAS MADE AN HOUR AGO, OR LATER, THEN THEY JUST MISSED THEM AND IF THEY WISH, MAY PERSUE THEM INTO THE NEXT THREAD. IF THE OTHER PLAYER IS OFF LINE, THE PURSUIT HAS FAILED AND THE PLAYER LOSSES TRACK OF THE OTHER PLAYER.
ALSO, WHEN ENTERING A THREAD, ALL PLAYER MIST POST WHAT THREAD THEY CAME FROM, AND TO WHICH THREAD THEY ARE GOING, AND WHERE AT IN THE THREAD'S AREA THY CURRENTLY ARE AT. AS SOME THREADS COVER AREAS THAT ARE SO BIG AND DIVERS, THAT ALTHOUGH WITH THE WEREWOLF'S ACUTE SENSE OF HEARING, THEY MAY BE ABLE TO HEAR ONE ANOTHER, THEY MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SEE OR REACH EACH OTHER, DUE TO A WALL OR OTHER STRUCTURE. REMEMBER TO USE YOUR IMAGINATIONS AND THOROUGHLY IMAGINE WHERE YOU ARE WHEN ROLE PLAYING.
3. ALL THE RULES IN THE AVNOV GUILD ALSO APPLY
------------------Pay no a attention to any of the stuff down below. it's going to be removed, once I go through it.--------------
ALL MEMBERS HAVE TO WEAR THEIR RACE'S FORMULA, 24-7. THEY CAN'T EVER TAKE IT OFF AS LONG AS THEIR CHARACTER LIVES, IT'S A PART OF THEM.
3. THERE IS NO RULE 3.
4. THERE IS NO RULE 4.
5. GODMODING WILL NOT BE ALLOWED. IF WE SEE ANYBODY TAKING VAST AMOUNTS OF PUNISHMENT IN THE HUNTING GROUNDS AND NOT SHOWING THE EVEN THE LEAST BIT OF WEAKNESS, ONE OF THE GMS WILL POST THAT THAT PLAYER HAS FALLEN IN BATTLE AND THEY'LL BE OUT FOR THE REST OF THE FIGHT.
6. NO TRYING TO SKIP LEVELS. The GMS DECIDE IF YOU GO UP A LEVEL, OR NOT.
7. NUDITY IS NOT A TABOO HERE.
8. NO RACIST, HOMOSEXUAL, OR SEXIST BEHAVIOR, OR STRONG DISPLAYS OF RELIGION. THE REASON FOR THESE ARE AS FOLLOWS.
C. ICEWOLVES HAVE SPECIFIC AND FAMILY AND SOCIAL STRUCTURES, AND EACH MEMBER HAS A ROLE. THE CHILDREN DO AS THEIR PARENTS COMMAND AND THE CHILDREN NEED BOTH PARENTS TO INSTRUCT THEM. eVERYBODY MUST DO THEIR PART IN THE ICEWOLF COMMINITY, AS FARMERS, HUNTERS, HOUSE BUILDERS, ECT. EVERY ICEWOLF IS BORN INTO ONE OF NINE DIFFRENT PACKS, OR "BREEDS" UNDER THE RULE OF AN ALPHA LORD AND LADY
D. ICEWOLVES ARE PRIMAL AND HAVE NO RELIGION, SAVE FOR REVERENCE FOR THE MOON, THE SOURCE OF THEIR POWER. THEY ARE HOWEVER, AWARE OF THE EXISTENCE OF GODS AND DEITIES, BUT LIKE ANIMALS, THEY SERVE ONLY NATURE ITSELF. AS SUCH, NATURE GODS ARE CONSIDERED FRIENDS, BUT NO HOMAGE IS EVER PAYED TO THEM.
THE HIGH GM IS ONE OF JEHOVAH'S WITNISSES AND THEY DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE IMMORTALITY OF THE SOUL, THEY EVEN TEND TO FIND THE CONSCEPT TO BE OFFENSIVE TO THEIR GOD, JEHOVAH, AND THE ONLY HOLIDAY THEY CELIBRATE IS THE MEMORIAL OF CHRIST'S DEATH ON NISSAN 14. THEY TEACH LOVE FOR OUR FELLOW MAN, COMPASION, MORALITY, RESPECT, AND ABOVE ALL ELSE, TRUTH AND LOYALTY TO GOD. THEY CONSIDER LYING TO BE ONE OF THE WORST SINS, RIGHT NEXT TO MURDER. SO, WHEN HE PROMISES SOMETHING, NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES, HE WILL SEE IT DONE, AS HIS HONOR AND SPIRITUALITY IS AT STAKE AND TO DO OTHERWISE IS A STAIN ON HIS FAITH, AS LONG AS THE PROMISE DOES NOT CONFLICT WITH HIS FAITH. THEY ALSO FROWN ON HOMOSEXUALITY, ZOOPHILISM, AND EVEN FORNICATION, AS THEY BELIEVE THAT SEXUAL ACTIVITIES SHOULD ONLY BE DONE BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN, UNDER THE UNION OF MARRAGE. IT'S THE REASON WHY HIS CHARACTER IS SUCH A COLD FISH... BECAUSE HE HAS HIS MORALS. THOUGH THEY BELEIVE THAT THE WIFE SHOULD BE SUBMISSIVE, THEIR MEN DO NOT BELEIVE THAT WOMEN SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE DIRT, BUT RESPECTED INSTEAD. THEY ALSO BELIEVE THAT ALL OF MANKIND IS A BROTHERHOOD, REGUARDLESS OF RACE OR NATIONALITY AND CARE FOR TOTAL STANGERS LIKE THEY WOULD FAMILY. IF ANYBODY WOULD LIKE TO ASK MORE ABOUT THEM, FEEL FREE TO PM HIS MULE, SHAPELESS EVIL.
HOWEVER, DESPITE HIS BELIEFS, AND DESIRE TO AVOID ASSOCIATING WITH CERTAIN PEOPLE, BECAUSE OF HIS BELIEFS, HE HARBORS NO HATRED TO THOSE PEOPLE, NOR DOES HE WISH ANY HARM TO COME TO THEM. FOR THE SAKE OF HARMONY, WE ARE EXCLUDING ALL REAL LIFE RELIGION, HIS INCLUDED, FROM THIS RP AND APROACHING IT FROM A SCIENTIFIC/MYHTOLOGICAL DIRECTION.
WE DON'T FOR INSTANCE, WANT ANY CATHOLICS AND PRODISTANTS ARGUEING ON HERE.
THAT MEANS AS A COMPROMISE, THERE WILL BE NO SPIRITS OF THE DEAD EXCEPT FOR GOBLINS AND FEYS, NO ACTING AGRESSIVLY RELIGIOUS (UNLESS IN CHARACTER), AND NO HEAVEN OR HELL. INSTEAD HELL WILL BE REFERED TO AS MAKAI OR THE DEMON WORLD, AND HEAVEN WILL BE REFERED TO AS SIDHEKAI OR THE FEA WORLD (EXCEPT BY HUMANS). NEITHER OF THEM ARE SPIRITUAL REALMS AND ALL ENHABITANTS OF BOTH WORLDS ARE AS ALIVE AS YOU OR ME. THE TERM "SOUL" OR "MORTAL FLAME" WILL ALSO BE ONLY USED TO REFER TO LIFE IT'S SELF, THE VERY ESCENCE OF LIFE. A FORM OF PURE ENERGY THAT CAN ONLY BE FOUND IN LIVING BEINGS. WITH OUT IT, YOU SHRIVEL UP AND CRUMBLE TO DUST.
9. NO POSTING COMENTS ON THE TOPICS THAT EXPLAIN HOW TO MAKE A PROFILE. THEY ARE THERE TO GUIDE, ONLY AND POSTING COMENTS ON THEM PUTS THEM IN DISSORDER.
