Moonlake taking up the thread
« on: May 03, 2013, 07:16:09 PM »
I've been meaning to declare myself for the Weavers Guild and since 1'm 2/3 of the way done with 3 inter-related subs, I might as well take the plunge now.

That's fantastic!  Just remember that you can only be on one guild quest at a time.  You will have to finish all the Weaver Guild requirements before starting the Strolenati stuff, or vice versa.  Looking forward to seeing your stuff, in whichever order you choose to pursue it :)

I see, lucky that you mentioned this, else I'm fully going to multi-task and do bits and pieces for both Guilds at the same time. I guess the actual order of completion would depend on whichever sub that Mathom releases his clutch from first.

Well, I've been doing scroll additions for a while ever since I became less active on posting and really I have two of the scroll additions already written up in Word and the ideas for another two already in my head but not officially written down. Also, my days of lurking really paid off in terms of finding suggested subs. Actually, I was surprised myself at how productive I was yesterday in terms of completing the requirements for the Guild.

Ha, very clever Moonlake.  I'm enjoying reading about your world, but will need to change the guild requirements going forward -- only one of the three subs should ideally by a stub or a 100-word/Short and sweet sub.

Well, I had written up the Short&Sweet sub and the stub already and then browsing thru the forum, found the Weaver Guild and declared myself for it after reading the requirements. In retrospect, it did look like I'm being slack and exploiting some kind of loophole in the requirements.  :lol: And yes, you should change the requirements to make sure this doesn't happen again. :wink:

btw, I'm expanding my Kalimon overview sub. I originally thought what I put out would be interesting enough for a 3.5 but it looks like my assessment is slightly off so I'm adding a few more details that you pointed out in your comments. So make sure you revote on it.

No worries -- I've already modified the quest requirements going forward, and am really looking forward to reading your expanded sub on Kalimon.  It's a nifty world (imagine having Pokemon suddenly pop up all over the place where there were none before!).

I am in concurrence. It shouldn't be a separate Guild requirement, it should be the overarching Guild rules. Stubs and short challenge subs should only be counted if explicitly stated in the specific quest rules. Some actually do state that if I remember correctly.

I am looking forward to more details too. You threw out a lot of bread crumbs....where is the witch's house?!?!?!

Well, in this particular incidence for the Weaver Guild, it says a stub is allowed but doesn't explicitly refer to short challenge subs.

Anyway, I revised the Kalimon overview sub already and threw out a somewhat expanded version. I'm now waiting for Dossta's and your revotes. I haven't gone into details into the magic still (though I added a few details to clear things up a bit more) because I'm going to put out another sub devoted entirely to the topic later. But yeah, let me know how you like it and I will make clarifications where I could. But really, some of the aspects I haven't worked it out myself. Also, I have all these ideas on the World of Kalimon post-Elementallion but again, these contents seem more suited to further subs. So yeah, I'm afraid there might still be bread crumbs floating around.

As guild master, I have decided not to challenge Moonlake's shorter sub, on the grounds that it wasn't specifically forbidden when he began the quest (and I did say that one of the subs may be a stub, so his other one is covered under that).  I'm fine with it -- this once :P

I've decided to make another minor revision for the Kalimon sub (slight expansion on Inhabitants and addition of a very rough Location section with short descriptions of 2 locations of interest). I've asked ppl to hold off from voting for now until the new edit.

Awesome, looking forward to it!  And don't be afraid to go big -- sometimes it's better to roll a LOT of stuff into one sub and have a very complete, very useful submission, than it is to spin off a bunch of smaller average subs.

Well, I admit I was being a bit slack with the Kalimon sub in addition to not having fully worked out some parts yet. And actually, the comments I received so far were great- I got the ideas for 2 locations this morning whereas previously I could think of nothing and I think this has to do with your comment (which sort of gave me some kind of motivation to develop the world further  :up:).

I'm just done with 1 location and the write-up of it ends up pulling out a few more details abt the World besides just adding a location of interest, an aspect I quite like myself. Anyway, back to the revision for me.

All right, done with the revision now. Added stat. info. on Inhabitants and 3 locations of interest.

Congratulations, Moonlake -- your apprenticeship application has been accepted, and your contributions to the archive recorded.  Welcome!  Feel free to clear out a room in the tower; I'm afraid that some parts of this place haven't seen the light in ages.  No matter.  We will continue to dust the cobwebs off the Citadel and breathe new life into these old tomes, for as long as we call ourselves Weavers.
