~Kahli~ The Ancient City of Legends (RP-PvP) The ancient city of Kahli was lost to the world during the Fall. Many centuries have spanned since its horrible demise. What became of its peoples, temples, stories and lore? Only recent whispers from a mysterious sorcerer bring hints of this locale’s vibrant history. In the years since The Fall, the territory became a place of peril, one which harbors only the bravest of souls or those fraught with such depravity, they are shunned elsewhere. Settlers here must prepare themselves for engaging warfare and political betrayal, for your neighbors might not be your friends, and your friends might be too distant to render aid. Many free rental rooms await claiming by individuals! Numerous outposts abound and await claiming by guilds or guilds-t0-be! Dozens upon dozens of properties are available for open, unreserved claiming! An entire underworld town lies beneath Kahli, affording those wishing to settle there the ability to choose exactly where their home should be placed! Will Kahli's people band together to fight against raiders from beyond their borders? Will the outpost guilds make war or peace amongst themselves? Will the Virtues hold any sway within this land of strife? Only time will tell. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ~ Guidelines ~ (See Expanded Location Descriptions, Intent of Free Housing) See expanded location descriptions to determine role-player preferences for each location.

With waters most bountiful, the lake provides these skilled anglers robust opportunities for their craft. Would you like to join the members of Pax et Fortitudo or the greater PaxLair Alliance in their fishing endeavors? If so, bait your hooks, friends, for the waters and fine fishing companions await! Contact @Erich Ruhl for more information. Boreus Village A Well-Defended Trading Role-Playing Community (Claimed by @Adam Crow, 4 Village, 12 Row Lots) A place of beauty, for sure, with Boreus standing stoic, overlooking the majestic Shimmering Lake, but to claim this village presents considerable risk. Central to many nearby settlements, could these villagers one day face a war upon all fronts? Fortunately, Boreus Village is a considerably defensible village featuring 12 Row Lots, 4 Village Lots, and some castle wall reinforcements. Making their home here are Gerald and Kendra Higglesbottom, a decorations and crafting merchant, and are oft seen nearby whilst paying homage to the likeness of Boreus. Quill and ink awaits you, oh village leader! Scribe the tale of this land, and weave your grand vision into Kahli’s rich history. Contact @Adam Crow for more information. Dragon Bone Hill A Dragon Lore Centric Role-Playing Community (Unclaimed by Guild, 1 Village, 14 Row Lots) The lore of Kahli is amuck with mention of giant scaled beasts known as Dragons. This unsettled outpost once likely was a stronghold for either dragon worshipers, riders or perhaps even tamers. Within, there is a giant statue of a dragon, staring menacingly towards its gates to warn any that enter, should they cause harm to these peoples, surely the wrath of a dragon would befall them. Contact @Elgarion for more information. Gardeners of Kahli A Mercenary & Farming Role-Playing Community. (Claimed by The Gardeners of Kahli, 1 Village, 9 Row Lots) The Gardeners of Kahli were originally simple planters - farmers who learned quickly that there were those who would rather not grow things but take them, and destroy what they could not carry. They created a small compound where they could unite in common defense as well as support those who wished to help grow the things that their families in other compounds would need to survive. Though more farmer than warrior, more hunter than fighter; they continue to strive for honor - their Devotional just outside their compound exemplifies this. They maintain their way of life, not only by farming, but by hiring out to honorable folk, to defend those who wish to harm others, and to provide security, of sorts, to gatherings held in Kahli at the tavern, as well as keeping the wolves and bears away from other peaceful compounds. They are very good at that, for the tales of anyone even seeing a predator were quite old, and often embellished. The tales were handy for keeping the children home at night as well. The Gardeners are located inside a walled compound with a Greenhouse and Fountain. It is located to the Northeast between the devotionals Honor and Valor. (RP-PvP, Crafting) Available as Mercenary/Guard for events. Contact Ordezko at email@example.com for more information. Gluttony Tavern Apartments A Traveler and New Arrivals Role-Playing Community (Claimed by the Old Man of Kahli, @Elgarion and @Andartianna) The tavern appartments oft are visited by outsiders from town seeking temporary lodging, but also some choose to prolong their stay. Their reasons, unknown. Perhaps if one were to sit aside these travelers at the tavern, one could ascertain this. Take caution, however, for who knows what the goals are of those coming to Kahli. Could they be here to lift your purse? Perhaps to take your life? Or perhaps they are soon to be life long friends. Contact @Elgarion for more information. Just next door to the apartments is the Courthouse of Kahli run by a traveling group of magistrates intent upon providing law and order to small remote areas such as Kahli. If you have a legal case to persue or perhaps you'd like to inquire about magistrate openings and lodging for magistrates, contact @Andartianna for more information. Gluttony Tavern & Stables A Tavern & Stable Worker Role-Playing Community (4 Free Village Basement Rooms) This tavern and stables combo is a place mirth and relaxation in an otherwise dark territory of warfare and strife. Perhaps this is the meeting place for dispute settlement? Could there be truce here? Would everyone abide by this truce? Only time will tell. Will an enterprising innkeeper set up shop in Kahli, bringing their shrewd business sense and tales from afar? Or might they be after your coin, and water down their drinks like the swindlers they are... Contact @Elgarion for more information. Horsemen of the Vale A Role-Playing Community of Warrior Clan Horse Riders* (Unclaimed by Guild, 2 Village, 21 Row Lots) Albeit it has been centuries since man rode upon beast, an art long lost to the peoples of New Britannia, the Horsemen of the Vale remember their heritage and hope, to one day, to ride again into battle as their forefathers had, striking down their enemies with lance, blade and hoof. Will your guild claim this outpost featuring 21 Row Lots and 2 Village Lots, readying their peoples for a time of mounted warfare and exploration? Rest assured, oh Avatars, man will once again ride upon the beasts of the Vale. *Name of outpost and theme for outpost is negotiable. Contact @Elgarion for more information. Helboer An Norse Themed Role-Playing Community (Claimed by @Helvig Ingvildsdottir, 6 Village, 10 Row Lots) A group of people who seem inspired by norse culture and viking design have recently started renovating a long abandoned and run-down farming village surrounded by defensive walls and towers. In addition to several homes, the settlement sports a community farm, a bathhouse with sweat lodge, and a meadhall that is open to the public. These people are passionate about their freedom and independence, and follow no leader. It seems currently their spokesperson is a rune priestess that supposedly origins from early medieval Scandinavia. Contact @Helvig Ingvildsdottir for more information. Magi of Kahli A Role-Playing Community of Reclusive Magi* (Unclaimed by Guild, 13 Row Lots) Many knock upon the gates of the Magi of Kahli settlement, but unless your interests are magical in nature, it is unlikely one would garner a response from those within. The secrets of these Magi run deep, and the mystery of their origins even deeper. Dare you attempt to lay assault to these powerful spell singers? Good luck in that endeavor, for their walls are strong, and the power of their spells are indomitable. *Name of outpost and theme for outpost is negotiable. Contact @Elgarion for more information. Oracular Rise A Role-Playing Community of Oracle Devotees and Worshippers (Unclaimed by Guild, 1 Town, 20 Row Lots) Certainly those wishing to seek counsel with The Oracle must tread here, but will the lords that reside over this small plateau be welcoming to outsiders? How might they represent The Oracle’s desires as residents of the Confirmatory’s plateau? Will they take the wise guidance of The Oracle gently to others within Kahli, or will they interpret The Oracle’s soothsaying as justifications for war and strife within this already beleaguered town? Contact @Elgarion for more information. Sequanna Parish An Open Themed Role-Playing Community (Open Housing, 1 City, 1 Town, 5 Village, 72 Row Lots) The largest of settlements and probably the least defensible. Could there be a single guild willing to unify this immense village? Overlooking the Altar of Sacrifice, this parish offers much housing and opportunities for building a community. With 1 City Lot, 1 Town Lot, 5 Village Lots, and 72 Row Lots, what Lords and Ladies might attempt to claim this territory and spawn their own civilization within the ruins of Kahli? This village offers 4 vendors: a magic vendor, and the Eagleton sisters (Juliana the Banker, Talia the Cooking Merchant, Jessica the Crafting Merchant). And within the center of the parish, looking upon the city lot, is the Statue of Sequanna. Will her gaze upon the lord or lady who inhabits this home influence them to lead this territory with virtue? Will love ensue upon this place of potential light within the otherwise darkened land? Or will this lord look down upon the Altar of Sacrifice with a devilish grin instead, and rule their territory with cruelty and tyranny? Contact @Elgarion for more information. Shanty Town An Open Themed Role-Playing Community (Open Housing, 35 Row Lots) Could there be peace within this tunnel like array of Row Houses? With no larger lot, this location does not lend itself well to be ruled, but perhaps there will be Order when one most suspects Chaos? Holding 35 Row Lots, this location certainly offers a shady location to inhabit. With difficult to find alleyways concealing Sid the Black Market Dealer (Weapon Merchant), there is little to rely upon here other than your neighbor and your wits. Tread carefully friends, for here you might find the most vile... or perhaps the most forgotten. Can you bring this territory to greatness? Could Shanty Town ally itself with The Southern Watch, which overlooks it nearby? Contact @Elgarion for more information. Southern Watch A Role-Playing Community of House Serenite (Claimed by House Serenite, 1 Village, 5 Row Lots) A small walled location atop an only slightly larger plateau, The Southern Watch contains 3 vendors (Decorations, Pet and Banker) and a single access point. With 5 Row Lots and a Village lot, only a small group can lay claim to this location -- but can they keep it? For its mountain views and highly defensible features will be highly sought after. So very recently, whispers amongst the local tavern patrons have hinted upon the new residents of the Southern Watch. It seems caravans have arrived, and sounds of construction atop the hill of The Watch can be heard echoing throughout all of Kahli. Raise high above the towers, flowing defiantly in the wind, are the gold and crimson banners of House Serenite. Contact @Duke William of Serenite for more information. Stargazers of Kahli A Role-Playing Community of Astronomers & Astrologers (Unclaimed by Guild, 1 Village, 9 Row Lots) The heavens above speak to the world below in a subtle yet premonitory voice, twisting our fates into a web of their design. Many believe that each star, each planet reveals our futures through their elusive patterns and foretelling alignments. Does your guild look to the stars for guidance? Even the Cabalists take great value from what the skies say to us. Featuring 1 Village Lot, 9 Row Lots and a grand village sized orrery, a guild intrigued by the constellations above would find a good home here. Contact @Elgarion for more information. Syvlan Outpost An Elf Themed Role-Playing Community* (Unclaimed by Guild, 1 Village, 13 Row Lots) This small outpost is dedicated for those wishing to role-play as elves. Could this outpost be of the Vertas elf variety? Friendly to man, saddened by the great calamity at Blood River? Or could this outpost be claimed by those loyal to the Obsidian resurgence in New Britannia, bowing to the Cabalists as they lay siege to our cities? Only you could say, Avatar! *Name of outpost and theme for outpost is negotiable. Contact @Elgarion for more information. Temple of the Four An Ancient Cemetery Honoring the End of the Obsidian Reign (Claimed by Lord Kala Sharee and the Obsidian Remnant Role-Players) The inhabitants of Kahli’s varied greatly after The Fall. Remnants of the Obsidian Empire even exist here, Hidden within the Vale, and through the centuries since, some of these Obsidian structures were repurposed, as was the Obsidian Keep at the now named--Temple of the Four. Now adjoining the keep, lay an array of honored dead, each resting under the forest shade and the gentle gaze of three Oracle guardians. But what tales await us of the Four... of the Forty Four?Is there a tie between the remnants of the Obsidian Empire and these fallen? To what purpose could the Oracle’s likeness have been constructed to watch over these fallen? Why does the Fourth look separately upon the Fallen, set away from the Three? And most importantly, what stories of heroism might these souls harbor, and if one could speak to the dead, what wonders might one learn from the ancient past? Much of what has transpired within the borders of Kahli since the Fall can be learned at this Temple, but much of these ancient runic writings have yet to be recovered and translated. Are you a scholar hoping to unearth the teachings hidden within these scripts? Or perhaps you hope for finding ancient artifacts and treasure. Whatever your motivations, always remember, brave Avatars, that the Oracle watches you closely! Contact @Elgarion for more information. The Obsidian Remnant A Role-Playing Community of Obsidian Devotees (Claimed by Lord Kala Sharee and the Obsidian Remnant Role-Players) A remnant faction of the Obsidian Empire has returned to Kahli. To what purpose? By all indications, these dark beings loom in their towers above and have shown little interest in what transpires in the valley below. What plans are they forging? Are those of Kahli in danger, as they were so many years ago when the Obsidians of old twisted common townsfolk to their wicked Fomorian armies? Can these mysterious Obsidians be trusted? Bartered with? Counted upon when raiders come from beyond the borders of Kahli? That cannot be certain. Who amongst the peoples of Kahli will be the first to broker an alliance with these questionable neighbors? Who amongst them will be the first to declare war upon them? Contact @Elgarion for more information. The Wizard's Grove A Role-Playing Community of Librarians, Magi and Lore Seekers (Claimed by the Old Man of Kahli, @Elgarion) Elgarion has chosen a quiet life for himself, nesting into a quaint tree home near the western border of Kahli. Beneath this druid tree, lies an expansive basement. On its first floor is a grand library, featuring all the lore and knowledge he has been able to acquire. It is believed the wizard also allows those of like mind and interests to inhabit the various rooms beneath the library. Contact @Elgarion for more information. Westreach Outpost A Role-Playing Community of Spies & Negotiators* (Unclaimed by Guild, 8 Row Lots) What civilization is complete without its spies, diplomats, and negotiators? People accustomed to barter and agreement? Those cunning in the ways of espionage? Few societies can thrive without such talents. If ye seek a specialist in these regards? Contact those within the walls of Westreach. But take caution, Outlanders, for when one strikes a deal with those so privy to clandestine information, perhaps mere exposure to such folk puts your secrets at risk! *Name of outpost and theme for outpost is negotiable. Contact @Elgarion for more information. Windsinger's Mill A Role-Playing Community of Craftsmen & Millers (Claimed by the Old Man of Kahli, @Elgarion) A name of old. The Windsingers. Lady Eora Windsinger of Kahli has lived within its borders her entire life. The lady's bloodline can be traced back to the early ages of Kahli's ancient history, and she believes she is the last of her line. Once, her kin rode upon the dragon friends of Kahli as valiant knights and protectors of the Vale. But since the Fall, Kahli's kinship with dragons perished with its peoples, and the last dragon of Kahli died away during the Age of Survival centuries ago. Eventually, her line shed their armor to adorn the garb of tradesmen. And her? She is but a miller, speaking oft of her heritage, dreaming of a day when man and dragon will once again take to the skies together. Would you like to join in her endeavors? Crafting, milling and trade? Free rooms are available that seek to aid her! Contact @Elgarion for more information. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Parting Words from Elgarion… Avatars!
