[ 22] Wish: Nayr's Darkness Spell Removal Idea
Sun Oct 14 07:01:15 2001
To: all
I also feel removing this skill would too greatly weaken mages. Yes, it helps in tough areas or with bad recalls and the like, but this spell is so crucial to a mages defense I fear removing it would be like taking away the mages right arm. At this point the cleric/warrior class has been made so strong that there are fewer and fewer high level mages. Taking away darkness will continue this trend. Correct me if I am wrong, but Tynian himself has written that mages are primarily support characters. Well, don't take away the foundation of that support.
There are other ways to make areas more difficult rather than taking the easy way out by making the mage class even more undesirable to play. Write tougher areas. Make the mob AI more intelligent. Has anyone ever seen a mob cast sunlight? Or naturalize? Two spells which easily counteract darkness and I have never seen a mob cast either.
Now, I realize Tynian and Nayr, who I am certain are very busy people in RL, may not have the time to recode large parts of TFC. But I feel that without this recoding, without an increase in the sophistication of the basic game engine and areas, TFC will continue the downward trend indicated by Tynians recent note about statistics.
Tweaking the pk system, or individual class skills and talents should be considered only one small part of the effort to attract and keep players here. The no-frills aspect of TFC has always been its strength. Please don't make it one of its weaknesses.
Respectfully,
Wish, Black Knight of the Black Conclave

[ 21] Wish: Ignorance
Tue Feb 8 12:17:54 2005
To: all
Sometimes I catch even myself doing it: talking about something
of which I know absolutely nothing. Deplorable.
When I see or hear someone else doing it, I just have
to shake my neckless head and sigh. When will we ever learn?
The Nashite faith transcends followings. It transcends our
petty squabblings. To state otherwise simply exposes a deep
misunderstanding of crucial truth.
It is undeniable that Nashite believers of all followings have
a profound connection to each other through Lord Nash.
One's ignorance is exposed, however, when one believes
that this connection necessitates a political alliance
between followings. It does not.

[ 23] Wish: Fair Warning
Tue May 29 12:52:47 2012
To: all
I realize most will not care, but I am giving fair warning
that my pacifist days are coming to an end, and I will no longer
be abiding by the Code of Three for purely personal reasons.
I reserve the right to do what I please with any non-Nashite corpse
that happens to find its way into my inventory. Yes, that is a
double entendre.

Wish, Foul Sepiod of the Nashite Magi

Current Description: 05/08/13

As he notices your gaze, Wish nods pleasantly in return, his dark eyes meeting
yours.  It's honestly hard not to stare: his eyes are unusually large, as deep 
and bottomless as the sea itself, gazing back at you from a face - and body - 
covered in dynamic tattoos that shift and respond to his every thought. He is 
clearly Elven in bloodline, from the delicate curved tips of his ears, to the 
wiry grace of broad shoulders, narrow hips and long legs. His hands draw your
eye; lithe and strong, though stained at the fingertips from mixing tinctures. 
The clothing he wears is a motley mixture of the ritualistic and the sybaritic, 
worn with a confidence and ease that creates a pleasing whole. Only the slight 
trace of pastry crumbs upon his robe distract from the overall impression of 
intellect, grace, and strength.


09/14/2004:

Before you stands a strange elven man with mesmerizing, translucent skin. It flashes and wavers with many bright hues, helping him to both blend into his surroundings, and convey his quickly changing emotions. His eyes are uncommonly large, even for an elf, and you begin to feel uncomfortable when you notice that they never seem to blink. With those menacing eyes he seems to be boring into the cold depths of your very soul...
Wish has summoned you!
You are blinded!
You feel unclean.
Someone throws sand in your eyes. You are blinded!
Wish has a special twinkle in his eye.
Wish is in perfect health.

Character History:

The Maid’s Diary

We spent five days on the rocks before they came, the ship cracked open like a rotten oyster. Our noble Captain and the handsome Lieutenant Kendell worked tirelessly in an effort to bring her safely off the reef, however their efforts were all for naught. We were attacked just prior to our moment of triumph, the pirates swarming aboard in the cover of darkness. They must have seen our night fires. Knowing these waters far better than us, they had understood our predicament and must have relished the opportunity to take such a prize.

Within minutes, much of the crew was dead, including our Captain, and his beautiful wife, my Mistress. She had always treated me well, and I would like to think I had become more than a simple maid servant to her. I would have gladly died in her place. The pirates, unfortunately, had other plans for me.

I was taken aboard their ship, along with a young Elven boy whose name I never learned. How he had come to be on our ship, I know not. I had only seen glimpses of him during our first bright days of sailing, fetching water for the crew, or scrubbing the copper pots in the mess. Perhaps his family had sent him to sea, as is so often done with young lads whose family is without means. When I had asked Lieutenant Kendell about him, I was taken aback by his reply: “Why the Captain agreed to take on that pale little worm, I can’t fathom. He belongs on an Elfish ship with his own kind, not with us.” Then he spat on the deck, showing his true colors, and erasing any understanding that had come between us.

I was shown uncommon courtesy by the pirates, especially by the brutish Captain Vahzlune. Later I learned of the reason, but at the time I was pleasantly surprised. I can’t say they treated the boy the same. Imagine my shock to see one such as his youth bound and shackled to the mizzen mast, and left to the elements. I pleaded with the Captain to release him, but he would have nothing of it. I resolved to do what I could for the boy, despite my own circumstances.

It quickly became apparent the reason I was afforded such courtesy from the crew: their Captain had tired of his pleasure slaves and was in search of a young virgin wife. Ha! The very idea was laughable - my maidenhood had long since been lost, and the Captain was a vile demon, without honor or any other redeeming qualities. Still, I knew what game I must play in order to remain safe from the hands of the pirate crew.

The days passed in smooth sailing across the vast sea and into strange, maroon tinted waters. With each passing mile the boy's treatment worsened, and yet I was powerless to help him. The crew berated and beat the boy almost incessantly during the day, and I am certain did more unspeakable things to him at night. The breaking point came when I found him stuffed neck deep in a barrel of rotting and putrid squid that had been left out on the deck for weeks. More physical pain he had endured, but this torture was too much. The blank look on his face and his complete unresponsiveness sent me into a rage. I angrily confronted Captain Vahzlune and demanded his release, to which he icily replied "My Dear, if your feelings for this boy are so strong, I shall certainly release you both." I needed no more hint of his evil intent than the ever so slight smile that crossed his face. I have managed to secure a small dagger and am resolved to escape with the boy at the earliest opportunity. I only hope I have not sacrificed my position with the Captain in my zeal to protect the boy.

The Captain's Log

Clear sailing, SSE. Wind, due east. Uncommonly warm and cloudless. No sight of other sails for many weeks. Water, rations, rum all in good stead. Three crew members tortured and flogged at the grate for drunkenness. Two perished, and one soon shall. Three bodies given up to the deep, including the young maid servant taken from the trading ship. She was not who she appeared to be, and I now bear two deep scars to show for it. I expect to reach the Outland Frontier in a fortnight. There I am sure to find a purchaser of our cargo. Perhaps of slaves as well.

The Journal of Dr. Sotto, Chief Barbegazi Scientist

Day of Discovery

At last, after months, no years of searching I have found an appropriate subject for my work! Last night I received word from my agents in the upWorld that a ship has entered the bay with goods to trade, along with a special cargo: an Elven boy, still too young to have acquired the tattoos customarily given to adolescents of his kind as part of their rites of passage. Blessed be the Lord Barbegazi and His infinite grace! I must quickly make arrangements to purchase the boy and have him brought to my laboratory here in the Great Temple. Secrecy is the key. Although my work is sanctioned by Our Lord, perhaps my methods would be frowned upon.

Day of Delivery

The young boy has been brought to me and sits, at this very moment, motionless as a statue in my office. My fortune has been even greater than I had hoped, since he appears to suffer from some mental retardation that has left him nearly catatonic, and unresponsive to pain or discomfort of any kind. That will serve us both well in the days to come, for the nature of my work requires a...willing subject.

Day of Disruption

No magic, no spells, no alchemy. My work is not of this kind. Mine is of a more "biological" nature. Today, after years of research, and countless days spent in preparation I am finally ready to prove my theories in the honor of Lord Barbegazi and his glorious kingdom! Long have I extolled the wonders and virtues of the Ocean world, particularly the incredible creatures that live within. The nimble and intelligent dolphin, who swims so effortlessly and streamlined; the ferocious, and single-minded shark, who cruises tirelessly in search of prey; and the fascinating Cuttlefish, the focus of my research, with its unique chameleon-like ability to instantly change shape, size, and color.

It is from the living skin and sepia ink of this amazing creature that I have created a dye of indescribable potential. Once injected into the skin of a select group of Elite Barbegazi Priests, the eyes and ears of our Lord Barbegazi shall be extended at will into the upWorld, helping to secure our home and protect us from the malignant races above. To test and verify its qualities, I shall first inject it into the skin of my young Elf, tattooing his body with it from head to toe, as shall need be done to the brave Priests. I must remember not to forget his corneas.

Day of Despair

Somehow, I have miscalculated and my experiment has gone awry. Although I successfully completed the operation, and my precious elixir has been embedded deeply and permanently into the skin of my young Elf, he does not appear to have any control over the colors and images that now flash and pulsate randomly across his body. I can only assume that this is due to his reduced mental state. I should have anticipated this. The weakness of his race is a well-known fact. Had he been of strong Barbegazi stock, the results would have undoubtedly been better. All is not lost, however. I shall pickle the boy and save him for future dissection.

Awakening

An infinity of painful pin pricks. That is what I recall as my first real memory. Before that, only glimpses of the sea, a kind and beautiful face, and a horrible stench. My second real memory is much more vivid, and I often return to it fondly. It is of my tentacles wrapped around the scrawny neck of my tormentor. My unblinking eyes stared into his bulging ones, and I knew that his death was my moment of birth. I tossed his body aside like so much flotsam.

Taking in my surroundings, I realized I was deep underground, in a room expertly carved out of rock. It was furnished with tables upon which stood any number of glass tanks, tubes, and books. I bent to look into one of the tanks and saw an odd little creature staring back at me, its skin changing colors quickly and effortlessly, until finally it appeared to blend in with the sand, disappearing before my eyes.

I fled the room, somehow avoiding detection from the many gnomes that seemed to be roaming the stone corridors. Finding the exit to the surface was easy, and those few guards not sleeping were preoccupied with reading a strange little book. I managed to slip by unnoticed into an empty tavern above.

I remember the moon shining dimly through the windows, and the sound of snoring coming from one of the rooms above. Just then, a movement across the room startled me. I looked up and gasped. Before me, partially reflected in the Tavern window was the creature I had just seen in the tank! Metallic colors flashed across my skin. My arms and tentacles undulated like kelp. I ran.

That is what I saw. That is what I still see. What I was before I came to be in that place, I can't say. I only know what I had become.

The Truth Revealed

Many years have passed between now and that night in the empty tavern. My travels have taken me across the world, and I have seen many strange things. I have sought out an explanation for my appearance, and in so doing have acquired the knowledge of a powerful mage. I have stolen to stay alive, and thereby acquired the skills of a master thief. I have hunted to quench the fires of anger, and in so doing earned the trophies of a warrior. Although these actions have fed my hunger, none has satisfied my needs. Only one path has brought light to my life: the faith of Nashite.

My beginnings, my appearance, my ordeals, have all been preordained. The kind and beautiful face I see in my oldest memories can be of just one person: Lord Nash. It is but the first of several direct encounters with the Lord Nash that have revealed my true purpose: To forever praise Lord Nash, thereby drawing together all the souls of the land for the future destruction and recreation of the World, in cycles eternal.

I am Wish, the Cuttlefish. Foul Sepiod of the Black Conclave. Foul Sepiod of the Nashite Magi.

Wish is my favorite "invertebrate." Like Rath, Palmer and Kain, I was absolutely saddened when Wish became Anathema and I had to sever much of our in-character contact. I have admired him as a storyteller, a roleplayer, and an area writer for years, and am delighted he's spending time on TFC again.


Silonch
11-20-11
I think Wish (and for a time Dundrave) kept me sane (or as sane as I can be) during the last few years of the Conclave. I could always find Wish about, and talk about the old days, or just sit on FT and feel comfortable with family. I never got to tell all these guys how much I appreciated their support and tolerance. Wish was always good for some fun RP, or just a chat. And he had the best quotes. My favorite quote of all time came from Wish. He told Grismal (I am paraphrasing here, I can't remember the exact quote), "What, you killed Silonch? Isn't that a little bit by Godzilla killing Bambi?" For eons, every time I saw Grismal I would make big doe eyes at him, just for fun. Yes, I know Bambi was a boy but big buck eyes didn't sound as good hehe. Also - In true Conclave manner, Wish knew more then he ever revealed. I have so much respect for his game knowledge and skill. I adore you Wish!
