Talk and Rumors: Elira, Lyra, Matlal, Tse Gaiyan?

Post by Rias »

Recent rumors and public conversations have been plentiful centering around the following names: Elira, Lyra, and Matlal. Many townsfolk of Shadgard are commenting that they recall talk of Lyra in the past, and the Town Hall meeting that was had where a debate occurred over whether Lyra and her "lucid" or "awakened" infested should be helped or hunted when they were in want of supplies during that winter. Now the name Elira is coming up as well, and many recall hearing from adventurers about a place called Elira's Inn in the infested town of Tarueka. Lastly, the name Matlal is being mentioned as some sort of antagonist who has hindered, harmed, or possibly even kidnapped one or both of Lyra and Elira.

What's more, a man named Banam, a field scout of the organization called Tse Gaiyan, has been attempting to spread greater awareness and education to the people of the Central Lost Lands regarding the resen infestation. According to him, Tse Gaiyan is a society dedicated to both the research of resen-infestation and to attempts to keep the resen presence in check and contained, if not eradicated. The field scout says Tse Gaiyan needs more recruits if they're going to have any hope of making a difference against the enormous outbreak of resen-infestation in the Lost Lands, and he and his companions are intending to better establish their society and its resources in the Central Lost Lands region as soon as they can secure the manpower and the resources to do so.

==========

I figured I'd just make it official that this event chain is back on! Anyone interested in getting involved that isn't already, feel free to claim your character has heard the above rumors around town as a starting point to lead to asking for further information in-game via board posts, ESP, while in crowded gathering places, etc. Ask for info, offer to help, just try to keep up on the goings-on, or try to ignore it all if that's your thing.

While Tse Gaiyan isn't officially recruiting yet since Societies aren't finished being set up for the game, they'll be keeping their eyes on anyone who shows particular interest in their cause as resen-related events unfold. On the flip side - don't go and commit a character to Tse Gaiyan just because it's relevant in the current event line. Remember that only one Society can be joined, so if a character isn't long-term interested specifically in the study and/or fight against the resen infestation, it's perfectly fine to work with Tse Gaiyan in these events without planning to officially join them as a Society. We've also got other societies in the pipeline, so only commit to the one that will hold your (and your character's) genuine interest for the long haul! (See this post for what those societies will be about, even if not all set in stone quite yet.)

Seeing everyone start making plans and setting about different tasks has been awesome! Just a reminder to make occasional use of the THINK/RITUAL commands when going about doing things specifically for events. It doesn't mean you'll get a GM response, but doing so gives the GMs little snapshots of the efforts people are going to, which goes a long way toward keeping us informed of what everyone's doing in regards to the events and gives us the opportunity to react to certain things if we feel it's warranted.
