Re: OOC 3
Is Domitius now an actual SwordLord? May I ask if he got the title through taking the PrC, or some other path?

Re: OOC 3
Yes, Dom is a Swordlord.  Character builds are down to PCs to share, if they choose to :)

Re: OOC 3
What are the paths to SwordLord? The PrC I know about. I'm getting ready to enter the duelist class myself, maybe.

Re: OOC 3
From This page  http://rp.baileymail.net/doku....ter&s[]=duellist


There are three main routes to becoming a Swordlord.

Swordlord (Fighter Archetype) – the mainstream approach used by the majority of Aldori families and their troops. When they achieve level five they are known as a Swordlord Elect (Think Brown Belt). Level six gains them full Swordlord status (Think Black belt)

Swordlord (Prestige Class) – The best route for anyone who didn’t follow the Swordlord archetype – and even some that have. Qualifying for and achieving a single level of the Swordlord Prestige Class earns you Swordlord Status.

Duellist (Prestige Class) – An unusual way to qualify, but still possible. Someone trained in a different class, but proficient with an Aldori Duelling Sword, may well be given Swordlord status when they qualify as a duellist. However, they will have to prove their ability in a duel.




In Restov, Masters in other styles are often given the honorary title of Swordlord.


These are the ways to become a master duellist in the traditional style. Falcata and Buckler


Buckler Duellist (Fighter Archetype) – the approach chosen by most characters who choose to make a career as a Traditional Duellist. When they gain Level Six they are known as master Dualists.

Duellist (Combat Feat) – This feat give a character with basic falcata and buckler skills a boost. Someone with this feat and, at least, BAB 6 might be awarded Master Duellist status.

These are the ways to become a master duellist in the modern style.  (Rapier)

Learned Duellist (Fighter Archetype) – This is a career path taken mainly by fighters with an aristocratic background, of one sort or another. It is a good way to improve your status in aristocratic society.

Duellist (Prestige Class) – this is the most common career path for a Modern Master Duellist, as it offers a straightforward route into high level duelling for characters from many classes. Rogues and Bards are the obvious beneficiaries by any ‘combat’ character will have proficiency with rapiers and light blades, and most other classes can learn proficiency with at least one light blade. It is a common route for NPCs with the Aristocrat NPC class, as it can help them gain and maintain status in Aristocratic Circles.

Re: OOC 3
While I still want to do some work on Aldori Troop Types, I have expanded and updated the main Aldori page.  I don't think I have changed anything previously written, but I have expanded it and added a bit more context

stolen_land:brevoy:aldori

It will be useful for anyone who is interested in RPing an Aldori heritage, and (possibly) for those of you on the Diplomatic Visit to Sirian

Yeah. It was the shortened version that I use for the wiki  :(  Try this one.

Re: OOC 3
I have been talking to a couple of people about different types of building -  which has prompted me to put some of my floor plans on the wiki.  Some of these go back years before this game started ...

Well, I'm glad there no table for mortgages.   Let's never get that realistic.  I play fantasy games to escape that kind of thing.  ;)

Re: OOC 3
*grin*  Don't go to the bank for a loan ....  they charge interest :)

Seriously though, those are mainly there to give people a bit of an idea about different levels of accommodation, and also to show that there is flexibility.  However, you can still describe your own homes  :)

I often draw plans for buildings (etc)  when I am not feeling up to anything more serious.  They also help me to get a handle on some elements of my own RP, so many of those were done with characters (from other games) in mind.

Posting them now was convenient -  partly because of a couple of conversations, and partly because I haven't been feeling all that good this week, and messing around with a wiki page doesn't take a lot of thought  :)

Re: OOC 3
I have been doing a lot of work on the spreadsheets that I use to manage the finances recently, and have redesigned them to meet the new criteria we have spoken about, and to automate them a bit more.

Rather than individual spreadsheets for each holding, I have one for Midmarch, one for Greater Tusk and another for organisations that have developments in multiple settlements.  The last includes sheets for DELEM, V&A, WSM, Church of Abadar, Pharasma etc - which has made it much easier to create the financial information I create for each character at the start of a campaign round.

To save a bit more time  (extracting data and posting it separately takes a while) I am considering publishing complete versions of all three spreadsheets on the wiki.  That doesn't make any real difference to the settlements, as their data is published anyway,  BUT it would make the financial data for the businesses public for the first time -  although most of it could be extracted from the other sources anyway.

Does anyone have any problems with the new, more open, approach?

Re: OOC 3
I have added a Regional Organization page to the wiki - that gives a basic overview of  the largest businesses, churches and charities in the region.  The Finance details for DELEM, V&A, WSM, Abadar etc are all linked at the top of the page.

I have also added spreadsheets to the top of the Midmarch and Tusk pages, with details of current finances (under the new system) for each settlement.  I have left the original  Spreadsheets in  place, so you can cross-check.  If you aren't happy, PM me.

I'll get on with individual finances later in the week.
