    @Makarios If I may ask then, are we headed towards the Splinters being done and the "spark of life" restored to completed shrines?

    I spent most of the event getting lagspikes and dcing, so I eventually gave up and went to bed.  :(

    Ya know, these Tsol'teth give horrible experience and gold. Especially for a place where you have to tumble every minute or so.
    Huh. Neat.

    I'd be very curious to hear about other possible endings, but I totally understand if admin would rather not due to spoiler effects for future possibilities.

    @Makarios So I'm guessing we should prep for month 3 of the event?

    We'll have event posts up once they're all written and such, but I'm fine noting that the big part of the event is wrapped up. Obviously, you've not seen the last of the Tsol'teth (and their new god!), but you guys did a great job in the Underrealm and got all the barriers up, so the Tsol'teth at least are much more limited in most cases now.

    The Tsol'teth are very much an ongoing antagonist - their roster is very, very scary.

    You guys did very well though, we were expecting one of the worse endings at a couple of points in the fighting earlier!

    Will we be able to go past the barriers and poke around some more soon? Apparently there were many places people didn't reach.
    - (Eleusis): Ellodin says, "The Fissure of Echoes is Sarathai's happy place."
    - With sharp, crackling tones, Kyrra tells you, "The ladies must love you immensely."
    - (Eleusian Ranger Techs): Savira says, "Most of the hard stuff seem to have this built in code like: If adventurer_hitting_me = "Sarathai" then send("terminate and selfdestruct")."
    - Makarios says, "Serve well and perish."
    - Xaden says, "Xaden confirmed scrub 2017."

    I don't think they'll nuke any organization after what happened to Shallam.

    That said, I'd be completely down for joining the tsol'teth and adding my voice to the choir.

    What is a drop of rain, compared to the storm? What is a thought, compared to a mind?
    Yes, fucking yes.

    I really do regret that no side seriously attempted to join the tsol'teth in this event.

    I'm allowed to dream, but was that ever on the table, @Makarios?

    There is no greater love for a character than to want to see them die a most glorious, heroic death.

    Which is exactly what I see when I picture Deucalion fighting the many-armed meld-god, the Divine Conflagration searing the surroundings with an incredible heat, Caefir fighting as wraith-like apparitions of ash surging around inside His aura, their souls linked to the flame, as the servants of the Genesis guard themselves against the flame with the full power of the meld.
    But the Genesis has eight arms to hold you.

    Or, in Deucalion's case, eight arms to hold buckets to dowse Him.

    We'd have rolled with it if someone had come up with something to offer, but the reality is there's very little that the Achaean population could offer the Tsol'teth that they couldn't just take.

    The tsol'teth remind me of the Auditors of Reality: Incredibly powerful, but woefully shortsighted and reliant on group supervision to ensure a carefully ordered plan involving far too many chaotic elements.

    The big difference here being that that Auditors were still subject to certain rules that can prove fatal if broken. The Tsol'teth aren't really answering to anyone and the Gods seem to content to let them whatever they like (heretical or no) without intervention.

    Perhaps, this implies that the Gods themselves are subject to some sort of rule (or maybe they haven't particularly cared until the Tsol'teth wheeled out their FrankenGod) and we are all their Susans.

    In all fairness, noone expected the deSangre inquisition.

    Can you answer my question now?

    Deucalion has cowardly declined the challenge of Atalkez to engage in mortal combat.

    You hug Aurora compassionately.

    If the Tsol'teth race was introduced, it would have to come with some restricted RP guidelines...which naturally our playerbase will not follow :/ .

    Yeah, plus it will be hard to be a tsol'teth when they are wiped off the map :tongue:

    I'd see the tsol'teth as being analogous to humans as far as stats go.

    A: Depthswalker can use every stat in the game effectively.
    B: The tsol'teth have a known history of genetic alteration--let them emulate the stats of any other race before specialization.
    C: Racial identity is hubris and self-superiority, so I don't see any Achaeans ever having a problem with this.

    It's actually pretty simple. Release tsol'teth as a playable race, everyone swaps over, voila, tsol'teth dominate Sapience.

    Now now, let's not forget the ones (note, plural) who were copy/pasting the thing with Slith/Thoth as it happened onto CT. Entirely word for word, whenever a new message popped up. Or the ones who copy/paste tells... Not paraphrased, literally the entire thing: <insert dragon TELLs line> tells you, "You are a bumbling idiot for copying this entire fucking thing." ... Onto CT.
