A Palace Emissary Reduced to a Slave
« on: August 26, 2017, 1:29 AM »
Ateraan is filled with Political turmoil and has some harsh areas with grand roleplay. There are all kinds of positions of power and of servitude in the game and in the southland this is very much the case.

Recently a the Palace Emissary Kristo got into trouble with the Overseer's leader, the Master Warden. He now is being reduced to a slave to be purchased by anyone at a slave auction. If you want to learn more about this harsh environment or the roleplay in this land log in.

The event is Monday night at 10 PM Eastern Standard Time.

I don't really see why.
Slavery is not an uncommon feature in fantasy based Roleplay games.

You could probably find lots of features in lots of RPGs that aren't approved of in modern society. For instance, I have seen very few protests against the genocide that is the main feature of almost every hack'n'slash Mud.

I object to the intent, not specifically the content.

Your reply proved me right, Molly. I'll stop over your mud and smoke a blunt with your horse when I get off work. Apparently s/he has the good stuff, again.

The intent? What are you talking about? This post is in Promotions Thread. The intent is to promote the game through an exciting roleplay event that is happening on Monday. Why in the world would you object to that?

I took epilogy's comment to be sarcastic.  As if anything in muds are controversial.  It's text, who cares.

It looks like a fun event.  I wouldn't mind showing up and throwing a few rotten tomatoes at the humiliated slave and shouting SHAME!

While I find the strange troll with a hatred of you mud amusing, I do not find it warranted. This is a nice rp event, scheduled for a time in which a good deal of people will be on, and able to participate. I enjoy a good rpi mud. provided it is done properly.

*edit, woah, this guy has some serious issues. Issues that shouldn't be posted in public... get the buggart off this promo!

To bring the event full circle you might be interested to know that there were many bidders at the auction and a record was set for the highest bid ever for a slave sold in the Southlands at over four and a half million coppers (4,511,000 to be exact).

Here is the announcement:
=====================**********=====================
                              The Teacher Slave Kristo is sold to his
                              new Master Torat for 4511 crowns!
=====================**********=====================

What's more interesting is that the Purchaser who happened to be the Guild Master of the Warriors in the City of Darmahk was the actual slave of the former Palace Emissary Kristo brought low to slavedom.

Guild Master Torat was said to have mentioned he was determined to own this slave in order to make him do some of the menial service tasks Kristo had forced upon him during his time as a slave.

Some said that was epic kharma.

The roleplay for this particular even stretched across both kingdoms. I was in the north when the auction happened. New Worlds is rich with these kind of roleplay moments!

For those of you who missed this event you have a chance at a similar event even though not quite as exciting as the Palace Emissary.

In this case a Druid from the Northern Kingdom has sought for Fealty in Southern Darmahk. After several weeks of placating to the Council of Leaders and the Darmahkian people, he failed to convince them of his qualities to live in this harsh city. The result has been the order to put the Druid on the slave block for any citizen to purchase. This, according to the southern leaders, will teach him the lowest lifestyle of someone seeking fealty.

This event will begin Sunday evening at around 7 pm eastern standard time.

Has Epilogy ever been any other way?

The Druid ended up being sold to someone other that the Warrior Guild Master (this time a Trader) and the price was slightly lower that the Palace Emissary. A mere 2.5 million coppers.

This is not unusual there was a huge double trial this last weekend for some murders, but I'll make a new thread on that.  ;)
