PostSubject: A rare oppertunity   Sun Mar 08, 2009 1:33 pm

Alrght so I did some research and decided to go for Mortal Online instead of Darkfall, not because Darkfall is bad or MO is better but just because it seems to offer a atmosphere and community that suits me better then DF does.

I have discovered a rare oppertunity we could take advantage of by starting a RP project.
You might not know, it isnt even fully explained yet, but in MO you get the oppertunity to start your own cult/religion, and its not just rp but the god you make up can even become a official 'higher god' if it gets enough followers and land in the pantheon.
Currently, no other guilds or groups in the MO community have started their own religion, I was thinking this offers us a beautifull way of contributing to the game and MO community without having to battle all those big things that already formed in DF (like wessex and hyperion).

Now I like you guys a lot, your nice people to rp with, so I am asking you if you would like to join me in setting this up, I havent decided what kind of god or how the cults rules would be though I have some ideas, I would like to refine them with some other folks I know I can trust.

You can visit the MO website for information about the setting, there isnt much about religion yet though they have confirmed in interviews that it will play a major role in the game (i.e. temples will have to battle eachother for religious influence, burn temples, defeat herretics and be able to build religious structures etc)
Also, the MO community is still in its creationphase, there arent many guilds yet, you can see a list here: http://www.mortalonline.com/forums/1524-mortal-guilds-list.html

So.. anyone interested?

Tindrem is pretty much the logical choice to start a religion from, its the power center of the world ^^

we will have to decide what our deity stands for though:

Nice for rp and community interaction / wanted precence in towns and cities made my players:
God of Wealth / Trade (professions/trade)
Godess of Balance / Unity (guilds/groups/towns)
Godess of Forgiveness / Mercy (rp, being friendly to others, rising morale)

Nice for game purposes:
God of Wealth / Trade
God of War / Death (soldiers, war, being cruel, making people fear us)
God of Magic (wizards, mages, defence against magic combat etc)

i vote for polytheism! Very Happy

a god of politics (including war(and fighting) and peace and other political stuff)
a god of economics (trading , crafting , ...)

so economic god is about gathering resources , crafting stuff , trading , getting food , building things,...

politic god is about fighting (mellee magic and ranged) , expension , exploration , war and peace , diplomacy,laws and justice,...


and maybe a better name for the econimics god so we can add more stuff to his stuff (like science , knowledge, education)



ps1: http://www.mortalonline.com/forums/1405-information-summary.html
ps2 : can i be prophet? Razz

ps3: if we want to make a mortal online guild lets make it so we can post something on their forums in 2 weeks or something so we can grow quickly to have a lot of followers ready to make our gods the best gods in the worlds Very Happy

I'm going to play Darkfall first because Mortal Online doesn't look like it's going to be released any time soon. But it does look interesting. (I am a bit skeptic about the graphics though, graphics that good mean you can't have large fights)

When I read about gods I found the idea of a No-God quite interesting. Which could be seen as humanity. Humanity replacing Gods by worshipping a No-God could mean they indirectly worship themselves. You could see it as a reversed biblical God. Not creating man to resemble God, but creating God that resembles mankind. (Or in fact is mankind)

Thats not really true dagren, SGW has the same engine and I "heard" (closed beta) that it runs fine with 20 people in one spot.

And thats a interesting concept indeed!

On another note, I was looking for names (latin names of course) and the best result I got was Clementia, which means humanity, indulgence, mercy

so cheers The Temple of Clementia cheers would fit pretty well.

20 people is 10vs10. That's not a lot in my opinion, I'd like to see warlike battles. Sure on a high-end PC those graphics will be fine. But unless you can disable tons of effects a lot of players will have serious framedrops when there are too many people in the same area. Using the same engine doesn't mean it has the same graphics either. Razz But I do admit the Unreal 3.0 engine is really, really good for as far as I can tell. Smile
By the way I didn't say they can't pull it off, I'm just saying I'm a bit sceptical. ^^

Normally I'm not a big fan of latin names, but it does seem to fit with the culture in this game. Very Happy And Temple of Clementia does sound pretty good.

opulentia means wealth, riches, power, might, opulence, splendor

Opulentia is a medical term though, and not a very flattering one Razz

Indeed, "Orpulent" is an international term for calling someone fat, Orpulentia is a drug I think.

Anyway I am going to see if I can create a forum somewhere somehow someone... ow wait... yes somewhere... The Temple of Clementia will do.
Btw Dagren, your idea of the no-god is very nice but I am not sure if it really fits the game at the moment of starting? wouldnt a traditional god (like in the roman times) fit in better with the setting etc? for the rp...

Temple of Clementia (Templum Clementia) means Temple of Mercy / Temple of Humanity btw if that isnt a catchy title I dont know what is...

i cant found anything on opulentia being a medical term for fatty or drugs.

i did found opulent but thats a cactus.


also the tinremenes are known conquerers also they are arrogant and have slaves , so mercy doesnt really seems fit for them Razz

Did you ever even look at the romans? 0.o they conquered entire civilizations and still had gods of mercy love and kindness Razz
They might be arrogant but they are still human.

Anyway, the name is just a name Clementia will do, its the thing the goddess stands for we should decide.
