/////// I sent this PM on elben aator forums but not too sure how to include more than 4/5 people so feel it may reach more on here. ////////////
I just wanted to clear some things up about this event and how it is planned to go - I'd like to get everyone in the know of these guidelines but unfortunately can't send this PM to everyone! Please forward this onto anyone who is interested in knowing more about the event for RP or wish to be involved directly.
1. This is not a huge surface vs underdark raid - there will be a lot of people involved, but not in the conflict itself.
2. Those who just want to PvP need not be involved.
3. The confrontation regarding entering Lunar temple and ending RP/PvP will be selected - through RP (and of course know can be trusted when it comes to staying IC and not ruining other peoples fun)
I'm open to ideas and of course, your character can change any of the events that are coming with enough RP (IG) - though if this happens I urge you to post on the forum IC with your RP (of what happened etc etc).
On the chosen day - from the Underdark perspective:
There will be three groups:
Group 1 will be the mages preparing for the ritual, in Sorciere.
Group 2 are the scouts/warriors sent to Lunar Temple - No more than four, including one mage (with the gatestone).
Group 3 are the priestesses - No more than four - to enter through the portal for the final confrontation.
These numbers can change determining how many will be available on both sides to be fair.
Mages will stay in Sorciere during the ritual and after.
Priestesses will send any of the scout/warriors away depending on how many people have attended once in the Temple.
There is to be no PvP (CvC) unless in RP form until the portals are opened and the RP is finished on both sides.
Strictly no KOS, please.
There will be a period of maybe five minutes or so before the priestesses go through the portal allowing RP to be had by the males sent (and the female mage). This might give time for a change or circumstances through RP which would put a twist on things
One the priestesses enter Lunar through the portal, there will be further RP, and then OOCILY we agree when we're ready on the go ahead with any PvP.
All of those selected to be involved (yours too Nedy please) should remain dead if defeated until the RP is finished unless brought back through RP means. No spawning.
Once the confrontation is finished/ RP concluded with Lunar, if the drow are to triumph and the gatestone remains intact all drow players will leave through the opened portal, if it is destroyed, we must return to Szith on foot.
Of course, this is OOC information only and should not be used IC unless you know of these plans IG.
Rothe of all houses should not RP knowing private information (unless told IG) as they are not trusted by house members therefore would not be involved in such sensitive plans. Any Rothe wishing to be involved must use initiative IG, as would anyone seeking information that is not readily available.
Resurrection rules are yet to be confirmed as there's a conflict of ideas at the moment - feel free to add your thoughts here.
DM Cefar will be aiding us in this event, to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible.
Please continue to RP both in the forum and IG about this event, I hope this has cleared any OOC confusion anyone may have had. If you have any questions or wish to change any of the above information, let me know and we'll work on it. (Nedy, let me know your thoughts on the event)
