Whittling the BL Down
The BL topic became too bogged-down to use. This topic is for finding out exactly what we ALREADY agree on in regards to the BL and nothing else. The planning process will be broken down into steps in later threads - we can't let these assassins destroy us in the actual staff group!

What we know or agree on:
-The Black Lotus will kill the corrupt/unworthy High King, Rowan, using Freeling (not necessarily for that reason).
-Brick Boy will try-but-fail to save the king.
-The Black Lotus will kill the Outlaw coordinator.
-FNJ and OoL will investigate the BL in their MOCs.
-Later, Nerogue and the Outlaws will team up to destroy the Black Lotus.
-The king is in Worsan.
-The king has two brothers, Sadon and Borin, who are the heirs to the throne.
-The BL is recruiting Outlaws to its ranks and sending them to Worsan.
-Freeling will kill the last member of the BL inner council.
-We will leave some loose ends to tie a later story onto.
-Rainos and Enalica do not incorporate their Black Lotus into their foreign policies, whatever individuals may decide. Instead, the alliance will likely take advantage of the chaos.
-The king's brother will take over Mythron.

What we do not yet agree on (to be decided on in this order once this thread has served its purpose):
-Why the BL will kill the king
-Who started the BL
-What the BL is doing with its Outlaw recruits
-Exactly why the BL kills the coordinator, and what the coordinator thinks of the BL.
-How the Mythronian High Princes fit into the plot, and which one becomes king.
-Order of events
-December events (probably not to be decided until November)

Quoting George Marshall

Sorry, we need to be serious and work this out here. It's too ugly to joke around right now. Funny, though.

Anyway, does everyone have anything to add to these lists? If not, please say so - I want to get this done and get on to the breakdown.

That the king wasn't very good. Sorry, I'm doing my best to prevent chaos by stopping topics other than the exact limitations set down in the first comment from distracting people. We're not taking suggestions at the moment, only that which we have already agreed on.

Ian ..... was looking for you in the questions thread to see if he can add a small elf lord-dom in Mythron. Just a heads-up.

We need opinions too, because opinions eventually make up the content.
I'm sorry you had to join at such an insane time, it's never been like this before. This is why it's so important to have a staff group!

We do need opinions, but we're slowing down and taking it step by step. Right now we're laying foundations for a less hectic opinion session, not adding more ideas. We'll get back up to speed soon, though.

Do you agree that the second comment is accurate? I'm trying to find out what parts of this mess are unanimous opinions and which we still need to work on.

Did I see this? Yes; we're holding off on opinions. FNJ he had something to add to this list, so once he does so, we can move back to planning new details.

No, it looks like my other post disappeared. *Sigh* I guess I'll have to rewrite it once we get word from DTFNJ.

Sorry I wasn't around yesterday.... :/

Anyway, here is what I think we were all good with when we had version 10:



We are fuzzy with the past present and future stuff, and C-6 is fuzzy. But everything else I think we were all good with, let me know.


Here is what they were so we won't have to go find it. If you don't agree with one of the things here, comment about it and then I'll just delete that section and say FUZZY like I did with C-6


-----Timeline of MOCs---

() = People
Letters = 2-3 weeks for each letter (This is when the MOCs are posted by us, the admins)
Number = order of when the MOCs will be posted (Some may be posted on the same day or same week)

A= Pre assassination
B= During assassination
C= Directly afterward
D= Coordinator assassination
E= Conclusion

Before A, people will be putting rumors in their MOCs about the Black Lotus in their UC builds, thus getting everyone on MOCpages wondering about this big Black Lotus thing and building up suspense before the assassination MOC by Freeling.

(Freeling) A-1. Freeling joins Black Lotus.

(Brick Boy) B-2. Brick Boy fails to protect the king because of his love (He can show that he stumbled upon the plan in his UC or whatever).

(Freeling) B-3. Freeling assassinates the high king.

(Gilbert) C-4. Gilbert sends his side-character to Worsan to purchase weapons. Enalica is busy restructuring and Rainos is not fully extending itself to wipe the Mythronians out of their mountains.

(Caleb) C-5. Agrees to assist Rainos with weapons and lead his faction to by raid southern coastal outposts and small villages to distract Mythron.





(Feeling) C-6. FUZZY!!!!!





(Object) D-7. Black Lotus kills coordinator & Sozo rises.

(FNJ) D-8. Nerogue and the outlaws team up to tack down Black Lotus.

[Hopefully E 9-11 could all be posted in the same week, even cooler on the same day, but we'll see how it plays out]

(Object) E-9. Finds half of the new members of Black Lotus and destroys them.

(FNJ) E-10. Finds half of the new members of Black Lotus and destroys them.

(Freeling) E-11. Finds the man who brought him into the whole mess and deals with him - resulting in the final death of the Black Lotus assassins.

(Gilbert & Caleb)C-E. During the Black Lotus chaos, you decide what happens to the Eastern coast of Rainos and the supply line (maybe the supply goes down, and then later you will face Mythron.)

-----Outcome---

After E-11 (To be played out by the Admins in any way they want to present it)
1. The king's brother takes over Mythron.
2. Sozo becomes the leader of the Outlaws.
3. Brick Boy gets whatever he wants from his new king.
4. Darvainian is recognized for his heroism.
5. Trust is restored between Mythron and Nerogue.
6. Enalica is established.
7. Rainos is suddenly the powerhouse with Enalica as its ally.
8. Mythronians at the Eastern boarder of Rainos are left with a smaller supply line thanks to Enalica's intervention of raiding Mythronian villages/outposts/forts/etc.
9. New government in Mythron improved, but they are in a dire situation with their men at Rainos and Enalica at the seas....

What will happen next?

No problem - it was nice to have a day off. I edited the second comment to reflect most of this, although there are one or two parts we should go over again now that it's time to build this thing back up. Ready to advance to deciding who/what/why the BL exists?
