Lore Character

  • Character Name
    Captain J.D Sjielt
  • Character Story
    The Sjielt fammily is descended directly from the familial line of Armeonious Sjielt, a very close follower, perhaps even companion, to the goddess sjilea. Few know the legitimacy of Captain J.D Sjielt's claims to this bloodline, but he certainly strives to live up to the legacy of his matron goddess. Although his success in leading his mercenary company(as well as several other endeavors) wavers, his ambition and resolve are unrivaled in his homeland of Ithero. However, this has caused problems in the past, as his foresight does not quite always match that ambition. He has had several squabbles with the Itheri government, as well as foreign powers, and is currently laying low for the time being, in a distant Vrovonic island.
    Familial Bloodlines
    While worship of any given god was not nessesarily promoted or shunned in Armeonious's homeland of The Daggerlands, the thought of a god such as Sjilea frightened or even disgusted many Ashfolk. Ameonius was born in Sjilea's nation (the name of which has been lost to the histories), but moved to the Ashland towrd the beggining of his life, with the goal of helping settle and civilze the new born nation. This was an ambitious goal, even for a worshipper of Sjilea, but he never swayed from the goal, no matter how clear the Ashfolk mad it that they didn't want his help. Eventually he looked at the whole of the task he wished to achieve, and decided he was painting with too broad of stripes, and decided it would best serve his goddess to accomplish one goal at a time, until all were complete, and his task was finally accomplished. Eventually, he succeeded, in a way, helping settle a small town that would come to be known as Cana Laro'. Many of the now godless folk in the area listened to his preachings, and decided to adopt some of Her values. The history of this city is lost to time, but what was known is that Sjielt would move on to marry a daggerlands woman, before he was forced from his new home by mobs of anti god ashfolk still clinging to the shock of their recent "Awakening". His wife (Palina Meive) had to be left behind, and Sjielt was forced to flee to Ithero, where, in his middle age, he found an unexpected acceptance from the militant nation. Eventually, he would marry again, and his family would hold power in Ithero for quite some time, before, their bloodline supposedly faded away. Today, there are only three claimants to their ancestor's bloodline: Anthony Sebastian Sjielt, a recently impoverished native born Itheri, who claims to be the third cousin and closest surviving heir to the bloodline; John Daniel Sjielt, who moved to Ithero with his father as a child, whose father claimed to be the great grandson of Palina Mieve, and a third, unknown figure, who has been pulling puppet strings behind the scenes in the name of the Sjielt bloodline.
    Early Life
    When J.D Sjielt was young, his father moved to Ithero, with an understanding that the Sjielt family was powerful in Ithero, and that he might be able to set up a better future for his son. Sjielt (Sr.) had grown up in intense poverty, however, and rumours among the lowest classes always tended to be a few decades behind, and a few fold too grand. By the time he had worked up enough money to buy a ship to Ithero, the last Certain descendant of Armeonious (an Allie Fen Sjielt) had just recently died off at the young age of 18, leaving the last of the families fortunes to be decided. They were originally going to be given to Anthony, as there was no other claimant to dispute his own claims, but at that time, Sjielt Sr. arrived in Ithero, laying claim to the Will. At the same time that the two began to quarrel, a third figure arrived on scene, revealing his name only to the Itheri Admirals. The Will was set aside to be decided at a future date, and is still undecided today. Anthony and John's relationship was very shaky at first: John distrusted Anthony, with a suspicion that he was the reason for the death of Allie Fen. Anthony distrusted John's claims of heritage, and saw him as a pauper and charlatan, who simply came to Ithero to sieze an opportunity. At this time, John was at the age of 13, and Anthony, 15, and the church was disgusted by their quarrels. The church and the admirals threatened to give neither the will, until they could find a balance between eachother. This, was Very rough for the two. Anthony was cold, calculating, and distant, as well as very proud and dignified. Pride, however, was the only quality the two shared. In his young life, and still, John has been an avid drinker and flirt, very passionate and chummy, and VERY compulsive. The two formed a bond, however, through an unexpected art: Swordsmanship. The art put aside words, and showed each just how the other thought past their facade, Anthony learned, that while John would take unexpected, low reward risks, he thought very quickly and accurately. John learned, that Anthony was VERY competitive, and the thrill of victory, or the absolute tragedy of defeat, would often keep Anthony up at night. Each taught the other to work on their flaws, and formed an unbreakable, if also somehow unstable bond. John learned tact, to some extent, and Anthony learned the value of enjoying his life, win or lose. Life was all just a big game, after all, as John would often quote. You see, John grew up in absolutely horrible circumstances. In his youth, he developed a strange philosophy. He saw everyone around him, saw how even the poorest of his peers seemed to live in luxury, and he found himself to be the protagonist in his own game, a riddle set up for him to lose, over and over again, until one day, finally, he won. It is unknown as to weather or not this policy is truly felt, or artificial however, as he has had many very stages of unbearable depression in his life. Many of these can be found in his array of books and weekly journals. Some have questioned the mental stability of this eccentric mercenary captain.

    Sjielt Co. Foundation
    Sjielt Co. was founded by the church as a way to force the two to work together. It was started with a very very small fund, just enough to start buying and peddling fish in the streets of Calastore. However, instead of peddling the low demand, high supply of fish, the two split the money in half. Half was put into an interest bank account, and the other half was used to buy a wagon. With this, they would travel the city, offering to clean home owners chimneys, for little pay. Afterwards, they would load the soot into sacks on the cart, and take them to a craftsman, by the name of Artimenner Smith, who would use the soot as a material in fine dyes and inks, which he would then export to Ar-Selukk and Aloreh. They made a decent haul doing this, but the task itself was not the goal. Anthony had thought far ahead, and slowly observed the methods the man used to make these fine materials. Within three years, the earned enough to buy a small building, when they met a privateer, by the name of Trevor. The man had lost his job as an Itheri navy man, and bought a small ship, which he would rent to other larger sailors and merchants. However, the Sjielts saw opportunity, and hired the man as a mercenary. Anthony knew the coasts well by this time, and the three made a small fortune exporting their dyes to Selukk and Aloreh. They ended up hiring several other mercenaries and workers. Soon, the company grew out of control, and became an international company, with chapters throughout the world, and a net worth equal nearly a quarter the value of Allie Fen's will. This angered the unknown claimant, who attempted several times throughout the next few years to assassinate the two, and since, a shadow war of sorts has been waged between the claimant and his supporters, and Sjielt Co. The will became somewhat forgotten, as the years past, but Anthony and John still hope to defeat this enemy, and claim their rightful legacy, as one.

    Towns N Stuff

    So I havent been keeping up with everything the best, but reading back through the forums, im not finding much about how towns are supposed to work. I remember mention of a tax system of some sort to encourage larger towns, but cant find anything about what it takes to start a town. That said, is anyone making any plans for starting towns yet? I personally wouldnt mind trying my hand at running a town again, although this time around hopefully the server qill be active enough to recruit more than 5 active players im not certain where i want to live, although genaian isles has a nice vibe to it. Ill probably end up going where the most friends go qorst comes to worst though. I think ill be making a new character and whatnot, but should be getting the old group back together (me, tommo, veggie, lemon, jeff, remus, a couple new guys, maybe some of the oldies like sywave and maybe talking some of the other ithero guys into joining forces). hows everyone else looking though? Any other towns or groups looking to get back together, cause some havoc? Clearwater? Salacia, harvikir? What about them roreg boys?

    Sellt's Diary 05/13/2018

    Will we be adding more in game rp features, and/or maybe a collection of some sort of rp rules (like for govt positions and the like)? I'm sure you guys are sick of hearing about it by now, but it would be cool imo if you guys took a few pages from lord of the crafts book in this regard and tried to build up a bigger rp community, that's actually active and not just people telling stories on the forums (which is still really cool imo but I feel like there's just more potential). I would actually suggest building up a small team of joint mods and active rpers and pvpers, to plan out rp based pvp, pve, maybe even dungeon events?

    Some General Questions

    We had the same issue and ended up just using 1.7.10, but I'm pretty sure we did actually find an unfinished version for 1.10... if I recall, it worked well outside of one little issue, but I'll have to check and get back to you on it.
  11. Burnside

    Some General Questions

    Regarding the first issue, why then are we getting rid of heroes? I understand that the previous system got a bit stale and mundane, but heroes is really adaptable and can do exactly that... If you'd like I could show you the system tommos developed in our own private server. We've tested and used it extensively and it's very very customizable as well as balanced, especially when combined with a few other plugins I could recommend.
  12. Think they said late 2018, but not sure

    Towns Plans

    Hey guys, was just wanting to try and get a list of people who are wanting to make towns, who all will be joining them, what nation's there playing, ect. If you do want to join a town but don't know where, say so and maybe someone will try and get you to join them. I personally will be recreating the Sjielt Company, although under some.... Different management. Will probably be joining a town in the Genian isles, but nothing's set in stone. If you want to join, let me know. Allways looking for new recruits
  14. Aren't they nuking heroes?
