  1. Wouldn't it be possible to code a new soul anchor subtype that upon initialization inserts itself into the head of whomever possesses it and deletes the physical item? That way when the spawning happens, it automatically puts itself in the character and nobody's the wiser?
  2. What if my mother already died in her sleep
  3. Weird flex coming from the guy that specifically put in place the lore that caused this in the first place and did everything he could to establish a city outside of it. If you read any of my posts here you'd know I asked a variety of questions to understand the character and the things they're going through such as their thoughts on the nation they aligned themselves with, their encroaching death, and their religious views. But no you're right I hyper focus on the gayness. Ok boomer All of this said it's not my place to say whether this is an acceptable application or not. You have the makings of a tajaran character and it seems to fit in the lore so I wish you the best of luck. Something to note, you'll only be able to select Delvahhi or Siik'maas when you create the character as somebody felt making Zhan-Khazan unable to use two extra languages made sense on a biological level.
  4. Alright. My final barrage of questions then: What are you looking to get out of the species? You've mentioned a desire to engage in the conflict that being such a subversive character brings but are you fully prepared for other Tajara to actively insult, berate, and treat your character as an outcast? We have numerous players that themselves play homosexual Tajara and find themselves unwilling to continue because they don't enjoy the fact they were put in labor camps, the stigma toward the acts, and the generally unfavorable experiences that come out of being one. There's also the fact your Tajara aligned himself with the ALA which during the Second Revolution were notorious for utilizing child soldiers, terrorist attacks, and extorting the very people that your Tajara himself spawned from. Most Tajara retire around 60, as Tajara themselves do not live very long with most of them dying around 70 with the oldest living one being 84. How is your character coming to terms with his mortality and the fact he'll soon be unable to provide for his mother back on Adhomai who herself is on the verge of death most likely.
  5. How did he find work as an assistant for a government official during the first revolution if he only spoke Delvahhi? Also, when did he learn Basic?
  6. Alright, I wasn't aware the first bombardments took place under the first revolution, as there was a period of almost twenty years between the two revolutions I assumed you befuddled the timelines or something. How old does this make your Tajara? Given the ending of the first revolution in 2432, and the starting of the second one fully in 2451, the math there tells me your character's likely around 46~ give or take assuming he started working when he was an adult at 16. Your Tajara's likely to hold some pretty traditional views on things, especially being through two revolutions like this. Does your character prescribe to any form of religious sect? Those that reside in the DPRA tend to be more religious than those that found themselves under the stranglehold of the atheist PRA. Also, is your character planning on renouncing PRA citizenship for DPRA?
  7. Before I get into the obvious, why was there a bombardment on his village before the revolution even set off? The implication of such is that he lives in Northern Harr'masir and within NKA territory. Why was he able to find work as an administrative assistant instead of some menial position if he was facing such harsh discrimination for being Zhan-Khazan which weren't in place until after the attempted coup and the assassination? As for the homosexuality. The implications of them being found out and your desire to produce conflict on station relating to it imply that the character will be open about his homosexuality, is this something you're looking to further present on the Aurora since your Tajara will be safely away from Adhomian society? On a second note, why was only the boyfriend killed and Akh'kar faced only being shunned?
  8. This is the way. If a member of the staff refuses to allow me to even say thanks for handling my issue I'll just make another ahelp specifically for that. Nobody's going to go through the trouble of banning you or anything for expressing gratitude for handling your issue. That said if you have another issue with something else, just make another ticket. Yes, obviously the best practice would be going "is anything else needed?" but not everybody's going to do that, so it's just something we should work around.
  9. Then there's the question of bluespace gates. Kyres gave the suggestion of twice as fast as the fasted bluespace drives, being just 91 days to travel 500 light years, which is more sound until you realise it still takes half a year to get to the furthest reaches.
  10. Then you're faced with people questioning how fast it is. @BoryaTheSlayer
  11. Right now bluespace travel makes very little sense for the setting. The slowest possible drives take 50 years to travel just 500 light years with the fastest taking 182 days. This means that in the time frame of how fast shit is going in our lore, there's no way most of these places in the far reaches of the frontier would be discovered or anybody would be getting anywhere/creating bluespace gates. This doesn't even account for pre-warp which is where most of the discoveries and such occurred which is even SLOWER than bluespace drives, so right now these numbers are all fucked.
  12. Things are normalizing. I'll likely be able to return, just with less time than usual. Expect a smaller presence from me.
  13. This is never easy. Life is a series of responses to change in course and I'm facing a new one. I likely won't be returning for some time. Some are aware of the situation and some aren't. I will try to make a return at some point, but don't count on it being soon. Every single one of you are my family and family is never forgotten. Godspeed, spessmens
  14. This just makes me want Judges now. Please execute me, Oscar-senpai.
  15. You can make it weighted through code as well, so it imposes a slow-down when moving.
  16. Okay, first - in your application, there's a system near sol that acts as NT's command hub. This is adverse to our actual lore regarding NT's command hub located in Biesel itself. If your character's going to work in Tau Ceti for extended time, it's expected that they'll at least know what's going on in the system. Secondly, he managed to obtain degrees in electronics and a masters in organizational leadership while living in the frontier working on a small ship floating through the cosmos? Something seems a bit off. Thirdly, discussing your character is important on the application because it's expected that you'll be making characters that are believable, especially within the realms of the server and for the roles you wish to play.
  17. I plan to condense Tajara lore into five/six pages. The central page that will have better organization of the timeline in it, the central ethnicities, and everything it has but with the non-faction related material in it. Then the S'rand'marr page, for information on S'rand'marr and Adhomai itself. Then the three factions and pertinent information to them each. With regard to the subfactions/cultures of the nomads and such. The final page will be the cultures section which will involve art, religion, language aspects, and integration of other species into Adhomai and Adhomian culture. As for your final question regarding direction, I feel I didn't take it in a dark way. Instead a more fleshed out and grounded way. While it's true I tend to go darker with my themes, it's merely a consequence of my subject desire to keep things "realistic" with how they're portrayed, regardless of sensibilities. If the direction Tajaran lore is heading allows for a more positive traversal, then so be it, but if it doesn't, oh well. I'm not going to adjust theme away from what makes sense purely to make a statement. I have no agenda on the matter.
  18. >mouse spawns and raids the kitchen, dies >minutes later, mouse raids the kitchen and dies >minutes later, mouse raids the kitchen and dies I've gone to cryo and rejoined as a maintenance drone just to sit in the kitchen and protect the food from rat players that decided to do this over and over. Arguing that they're protected because they're players is about as bad as Nanako arguing that killing rats is ganking.

    Even during events I am unable to escape the misery of cat lore.

  21. From what I understand the war is ending soon(tm). So that won't be much of an issue. Considering all the sides except the DPRA have enacted some form of draft, it's hard to say that "no you can't be in the war" if you're playing a male character, but there's nothing stopping you from playing a female that's ambivalent about the whole thing. As it stands the most important thing is going to be ending the war, which is going to happen regardless of whether I'm put in or not, so I can't really say much on that. A grand majority of our lore for Tajara is related to a war that was going to end someday, which is something of a minor oversight. As it stands, there's many factions that allow for being involved in the culture without being part of the war. The nomads aren't a solitary entity, the Parivara are notoriously centrist when it comes to war, and then there's the newly redesigned Free City of Crevus which is undergoing changes to better fit the setting on Adhomai and to reform it, by Alberyk. When it comes to wanting to subvert what's typical, all it takes is a bit of time making a backstory that works. Realistically sky's the limit. The biggest issue for me is travel time. It's exceedingly hard to put in place the idea that somebody can work on the Aurora, yet be involved in anything on Adhomai, since our only written lore dictates that it takes at least a solid month of travel by bluespace to get to S'rand'marr. I'd hopefully be working with the loreteam to work something out, probably with Bluespace gates to rectify that.
  22. Personally I'll be focusing on fleshing out aspects of modern society, such as the social programs, the usage the PRA gets out of the vast amount of space from the equator, and the conflict between the borders of the line at the equator itself. There's a lot of untouched concepts like the fractured allegiances in towns all across that front and what the lost of numerous areas like Ferro'biyn and Ron'Tul meant for both the Republic and the ALA. There's a lot of news articles with most of them not even being on the wiki. So half the lore is not readily accessible unless you're willing to sift through seven pages of shit. I'd like to condense the articles down and bring summaries into the timeline page.
