    What is the Balance of Power?
  • NellaundraNellaundra Member Posts: 1,556 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    I hate my keyboard today.


    Balance of Power is an event in which you take on the persona of one of
    history's Legends. These Legends may be from Achaea, from earth's history, or
    from one of earth's myths. When a Balance of Power is announced, you will be
    able to become one of the following Legends. The syntax is: JOIN BOP <arena>.
    You will be automatically assigned an unused Legend that you will play during
    the event.

    The Legends are:

    SAHART, Founder of Shallam         SERVELAN de Vermiis, the Orator
    Blademaster MATIC Ridley           King SOLOMON, the Wise
    GLANOS, Founder of Ashtan          Lord NICATOR, the Chosen One
    CALLISTO, the Father               Aleister CROWLEY, the Beast
    LEONARDO da Vinci, the Artist      Sir LANCELOT du Lac, the Warrior
    Madame BLAVATSKY, the Mystic       ORPHEUS, the Musician
    SINOPE, the Mother                 King CHARLEMAGNE, the Conqueror
    PLATO, the Philosopher             PARACELSUS, the Healer
    BABA Yaga, the Witch               King LA'RAMHIS, of the Tsol'aa
    JOAN d'Arc, the Martyr             PASIPHAE, the Beloved

    Upon becoming a Legend, you will be deposited into the Matsuhama Arena, in
    Delos. Once the Balance of Power has been started, you must try to slay the
    other Legends, to become the last one standing. The abilities you will have are
    as follows:

      - Syntax: HEAL
      - Heals some health.

      - Syntax: MEDITATE
      - Heals mana.

      - Syntax: SHOOT <adventurer> <direction>
      - Inflicts damage.

      - TOUCH WEB <target>
      - Webs someone. Unlike normal web tattoo, it does use mana.
      - WRITHE to unweb yourself.

      - Puts up a magical shield around you. Uses mana, unlike normally.

      - TOUCH HAMMER <target>
      - Destroys someone's magical shield. Uses mana, unlike normally.

      - POINT WAND <target>
      - Does more damage than the flame bow.

    In addition, you will find that you have the skills of Vision and Survival to
    do with as you please.

    @Sena: Agreed. Solomon, Crowley, Leonardo, Lancelot, Blavatsky, Orpheus, Charlemagne, Plato, Paracelsus, Baba, and Joan can easily go. Years back, I suggested some replacements:

    LUCAINE Pyramides
    Queen CATARIN deSangre
    Duchess CASTOMIRA Brangwin
    LUCIUS Errikale, the Serpentlord
    Lady ELENTARI Lokelinde-Danial
    MARAN La'Saen, Seraph of Creation
    ZARATHUSTRA, the Freedom Fighter
    DAWN Illoriel, Keeper of the Light
    Emperor PIRAEUS the Great
    ANAKE, the Betrayer
    HINGAR, of House Kortul
    Duke SEVERIAN Marcella
    AGITH'MAAL, Tsol'teth Overlord
    Overlord GRUUL, of Arn

    The reason it didn't get changed was because BoP has this nasty habit of breaking Achaea. I suspect that's still the case, and you'd likely have to fix it before addressing these other issues.

    Can we call it fate's day night instead?

    Wish I could like 5 times for Hingar alone. Can't see Maran getting in, since the character still exists, but the rest all look good. Maybe some more modern heroes such as Gawain, and perhaps reserve a place for Travian Shea since the poem has been canonised?

    What happens whenever a BoP is run on Achaea's servers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoxnZefvkUs

    That aside, I'd love to see BoP as a regular entity with actual IC characters and lore.

    As long as the following characters are included, this gets my vote:

    If we want to use Achaean legends, we gotta use Achaean legends.
    Tvistor: If that was a troll, it was masterful.
    I take my hat off to you.

    Waiting for the day they're selling being represented as a BoP figure as an auction item.

    Dear @Sylvance,

      Thank you for suggesting me in this list, I am honored!  Back then I had no idea that wanting to kill everyone and become the best would "actually work" or anyone would actually care to remember.  Most of you have achieved much greater than I so you all get my vote for being legends!
