Kyphis the Bard Posted July 10, 2011 Report Share Posted July 10, 2011 (edited) [quote name=Announcements] Ann. 1896 - [2011-07-09 03:33:48 - Stage 10] Memory stones functionality is done. They work in the following way: If you have a memory stone, and a spell, you can use all the casts of that spell at once to "memorize" that spell into the stone, enchanting it. The memory stone will then transform into an enchanted stone, named after the stored spell. This is a usable, tradeable item. When someone uses it, it will grant that person a limited number of casts from the stored spell, till the casts get consumed or for a period of 6 month. When casts run out or 6 month pass, the spell will vanish from that persons spells. Memory stones are a resource type of item and its gathering will be possible soon.[/quote] [quote name=Announcements] Ann. 1899 - [2011-07-09 07:38:06 - Stage 10] Acquiring memory stones Aranna and Lone Wolf were granted the stone detector item to be able to gather the memory stone resource and make it avaiable on the market (at prices or requirements they decide). This is not a guild, it is a freelance activity and a temporary way to make memory stones available and analyse market evolution and use. The tools can be taken away from them at any time but their trade benefits and/or gathered stones will remain as their reward. Aranna and Lone Wolf are supposed to be competing traders of the Memory stone resource so be sure you check both their offers when you wish to aquire a memory stone from them. This is experimental, discuss it on forum.[/quote] Firstly, I would like to point out that at current there is not a Guild for the gathering of Memory Stones. This post is just about discussing which land it should be allied with should a formal guild ever be established for this purpose. To this end, I would like people to respond to the above poll. I think it would be a good idea if a representative from each interested land would post an argument for why it should be in their land. Remember of course that this is just getting your opinion, Mur as always has the final say and may have already decided a land for this guild, should he ever make it a guild. I believe this guild would be most suited to the Archives. The Archives are a neutral land, and we already have a treasury for supporting our projects. Most of our members are also adept spell casters, allowing for spells to be added to memory stones in the same place they are purchased. As we are required to remain Neutral, wars and other political developments should not impact our probability of selling wares to any person, nor should we have much difficulty harvesting the memory stones when required. I would also like to see this guild located in the Archives, as I believe that it will help to promote interest in the MDA. Because a lot of the duties that the Archivists and Legend Speakers perform are not widely publicized, a lot of people ignore the Archives. [[i]The following is purely my own reasons, and not representative of the archives in any way beyond myself[/i]] I do not believe that the Guild, if created, should be associated with Marind Bell, as they now have the Water Gatherers. As a main land, it would also make situations complex in the event of war, even if the guild is itself neutral. I do not believe that the Guild, if created, should be associated with Loreroot, as they already have the Woodcutters. Again, they also have complications in the event of war, however in the past we have seen that Lorerootian Alliances tend to be more liberal, so this is less of a concern. I do not believe that the Guild, if created, should be associated with Necrovion, because their land already contains many, many secrets and natural resources. I also believe they would be the most likely to close borders in the event of war or other political instability. [color="#C0C0C0"]Note to the Mods: If the King/Queen of one of the four lands requests that one of their subjects posts be removed from this topic, I'm not going to mind (ie, you have free reign to edit this topic without discussing/notifying me). Primarily this is in relation to the idea it be a leader chosen representative who presents the argument for that land.[/color] Edited July 10, 2011 by Kyphis the Bard Watcher and Pipstickz 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
