Hi, I’m Vasher. A little background on me as a player, I started in IRE in 2000 and have played fairly consistently. Though I have not played Achaea in more than 10 years, I’ve primarily played in Lusternia during that time. What I’ve come back to is a completely different game.
For about four days now I’ve had a divine curse on me that causes this https://ada-young.com/pastebin/B3SzaI2N to happen about 3 times an hour. I received this curse after Astarod defiled a shrine in some temple on Meropis. He was subsequently afflicted by the divinity but not in the same way I was. I’m unsure of the differences between the two but it appears his was a one time affliction, and it was cured by my healing rite.
Normally, I’d be happy with some divine interaction even if it was negative like this as it’s an opportunity for roleplay and development of my character. However, I’ve not once through this process been spoken to by the divine that did this. Thinking oh this is an in character punishment for me healing Astarod I attempted several in character ways of removing it, including under going a purifying ritual in a flame of Deucalion’s order.
From speaking to others, it seems that the only resolution to this is time which really feels more like an OOC punishment to me. Honestly, if Tianondria had not also been cursed, (which I’m not sure why, she was just there when I put up healing rites) then I wouldn’t know what this was for. It doesn’t show up on GODFEELINGS or PUNISHMENTS.
All I really want to do right now is bash and this has put a complete halt to it. I suppose what I’d like to know is this common in Achaea? Divine punishments with no interaction? There are a few other things I’ve seen and heard from my patron which has made me question if this is just how things are there? Am I doing something wrong in not being able to cure this?
