Well well well, before the bad stuff happened to the forums and all olden topics lost and all that, I held an association of sorts for travelling ponies, and now the time have come to restart it, under another name: The Travellers Blessing.

This herd is a group of travellers willing to help each other out, and fellow travellers. We seek to make the roads a cosy and safe place to traverse.

Spoiler: So, first a wee background for this herd, written by the most brilliant Valentine. • show

[center]Long ago, after the twin sisters banished the evil Discord with the Elements of Harmony, Equestria was finally free to grow
and prosper as its founders had wished.  Unfortunately, the chaos that Discord wrought upon the land was great and
widespread, leaving many ponies, though free, still no better off then they were under his rule.  A group of Unicorns
from the newly founded city of Canterlot could not be at ease knowing that others suffered throughout the land.  This group
banded together to from a Blessing whos sole purpose was to go to every corner of Equestria and help their brethren where
they could.  As word spread of the great deeds of these travelling unicorns, they became known as the Travellers Blessing.

Time passed, and through the years some unicorns settled down in the towns they assisted, started new settlements of their
own, or just became too old to continue travelling.  Slowly, their numbers dwindled, and it became apparent that for the
survival of the Blessing they needed to recruit new members, and began to accept others who shared their goals, even if
they were not unicorns.

Eventually, the Travellers Blessing completed it's goal and Equestria was a land of plenty and happiness for all of it's
citizens.  It's members pleased, but not satisfied, gave themselves a new goal.  Over the ages it has been in existance, the
Travellers Blessing has been to all corners of Equestria and have seen many things.  Their new goal, to help and assist
anypony who wishes to travel the land; giving them help, safety, and comraderie.

This is how the Travellers Blessing of today came to be.

So, if you care to sign up I have a wee form to fill, note that this herd will have no real rank system as  travelling ponies are loosely organised and often far from others.

Spoiler: Lyrics by Magus • show

Far over the Canterlot Mountains tall,
To Luna's keep, Celestia's hall.
Timberwolves howl in the dark;
The dragons come to leave their mark.
The clouds turn pink,
Our spirits sink,
Equestria fell to Discord's might,
But we returned, him for to smite!

But vict'ry was tempered with mourning.
Suffering ponies, our actions scorning
Showed us the pain that Discord had left,
And though we'd won, of joy we were bereft.
For traveller's aid,
A Blessing we made.
From fair Canterlot out to the world
We travelled Equestria with banners unfurled.

And over the years our numbers grew small,
For our group unicorns alone did call.
And so at last we opened up our herd,
And in non-unicorns our group conferred.
And then once more
In days of yore,
We walked the paths Equestrian
To help the lost pedestrian.

Now, long after those dark days,
Our Watchers strong still guard the ways.
And though we finished all our founders willed,
And we the land with peace have filled
We carry on,
With every dawn,
To finish now our herd's new goal:
To help each stallion, mare and foal.

Once again we climb the mountains tall,
In triumph over Discord's fall!
Our friendships held, our honesty stood strong.
Our kindness grew; our laughter in song
A generous gift
Friends to uplift.
The Traveller's Blessing, wanderer's friend,
Equestria's roads we still defend!

Activity: (This means how active we are, right?) Pretty high. I'm on this forum almost every day, even when away from home. When the game comes out I will not be able to access it as much as I do the forum (unless it somehow runs on my phone...) but I will try to be on as much as is possible.
Planned Race: Unicorn
Reason to join: I always love having an option to explore and travel in any game that I play (this is one of the reasons Skyrim has kept me amused for so long) and exploring is pretty much exactly what I want to be doing in LoE. To have a big group of ponies to travel with really appeals to me.

Planned race: Pegasus
Reason to join: I enjoy being in a group, but not -in- the group. If we travel together, don't expect me to walk beside you. I'll keep my distance and watch from afar, thank you. However, I do enjoy traveling and seeing new land, as well as protecting my friends, and coming together with a ragtag bunch of misfits to explore dangerous territory. So I figured, why not make it official?
... Just don't expect me to talk much.

I think it's just because there is now a LoE discussion and herd subforum. There were a few guilds on the old forum but they got buried and forgotten.

Reason for joining: Normally when I play MMOs I end up never talking to anyone due to my insufferable shyness. I certainly don't want that happening with this game, so I figured it was best for me to kick my fears aside and join this herd before it was all filled up, dear Celestia I hope it's not all filled up.
     So why this herd? Well traveling good sir, traveling! It's my favorite thing to do in any game and I'd rather not do it alone.

And I can only concur, it was meant to encourage the use of guilds, but turned them into a grinding machine...

Oh, don't worry! Her wings are hidden, so she usually looks like a unicorn, and all royalty are alicorns, not just Celestia and Luna. It was a bit clear with that in the season two finale. ^-^

Well, I was talking ingame, this herd is after all for the game, and the team have clearly stated that winged unicorns are not to be playable.
I'm sorry but the restriction is not on me, but on the creators of Legends of Equestria.

When I first saw this herd, I was like <That name totally sounds like it it could be something in Morrowind. Maybe the name of an inn. I like it.> But then I read the description, and didn't really see how it fit well in the game, so passed on it. But it's getting so popular, and going back, I'm warming up to the idea (helping ponies pass through the Everfree, and escorting / party-filling on more dangerous missions... good potential). So here goes.

Activity: Mild. Three to five hours a week.
Planned race: Earth Pony.
Reason to join: I explained in the preface. Though originally an opportunity passed by, I have followed this thread due to its incessant activity, and have warmed up to the herd's mission / began to see the potential in its role. Also I just love the name.

Well, I could start one, but I will hardly manage it, this forum is too active for me to do it prober, and I have tonnes of stuff to take care of.

On a side note, remember that one may make some three characters in the game, and I would like that only one character per user in this herd.
Just for a good order, and that's why I asked for the OC name too, so that one may have other herds to join with another character.

Wait a second... as in Princess Parfait from Cucumber Quest? If so, that's fantastic. ('course if not that's cool too)

No, sorry xD It was just a username I use a lot

It's only reached a moment of inactivity. Though I must admit, I've checked this thread quite a few times to see if anything new happened, and was disappointed to see that nothing did. Herds don't serve much purpose now, and I'm sure that when the game is released the activity will come forth once again. But we should, at the very least, keep this thread alive to attract new members.

I'd like to think it has started up again. While I don't check here every day, I'm sad to see it isn't in the list of New Replies to My Posts.

So how's about we get a discussion or some-such going in here? It may be fruitless to talk about LOE-related things without any new information regarding the game, but how about other MMO's? With all the anti-hype around every tidbit of information released about The Elder Scrolls Online, some of my curiosity has been sparked about our little community (intended).

I'd be interested in gaining a better sense of how some of my herdmates like to play. Do y'all have a lot of experience with MMO's? Which have you played? Why do you play? What do you think of full-fledged RP servers and that kind of playstyle? How do you like to play? (Let's sew some threads of conversation and community.)

Personally, I've played City of Heroes (but fell from that because I was just soloing, and when I wasn't having fun, I knew I had to stop) and Phantasy Star Universe (on the XBOX, which was little more than a glorified chat room. For all it was lacking, I had fun with my little group of friends (she did it again!), and regret nothing. The voice chat definitely helped.) I tried to start Star Wars Galaxies and Final Fantasy XI, but couldn't get into either (for much the same reason of no sense of community).
I'm... tenuously watching TESO (if only because I'm a huge fan of The Elder Scrolls. I mean, just look at my avatar and tell me you remember Morrowind.)

I suppose that means I play (or am at least interested in MMO's) for community. As long as I'm doing things with others (working together), I can have fun. I've never really RP'd (even tabletop, heh...), but am quite open to the idea (if I have friends with whom to engage in such silliness). It seems to be a pretty popular interest in this community, anyway. I've always had the most fun in dungeons and whatnot, questing with friends, actively doing things, and am hoping for plenty of that in LOE (or at least more directed activity than farminggrinding or sitting and chatting).

I've been avoiding TES Online news, because I figure it's going to be 95% complaining, which may or may not be eventually justified...  >:/ I'm a TES fan too, though I've only played Oblivion and Skyrim. I can only hope that the TES MMO is at least half as hilariously buggy as its predecessors.

MMO-wise, I played WoW for about five years. My main reasons for playing were a) trying to find unusual, amusing things to do (e.g. convincing newbies that I was a NPC) and b) being in a community of cool people. I eventually quit when most of them left and the game lost its "mystique". So yeah, community's one of my main MMO interests too. Weird though it might sound, I kind of enjoy having a large ongoing game to play over a long period of time, as opposed to single-player games which I usually finish in a week or two.

I too have never really RP'd (barring that one time I went to a RP server in WoW and ran around with a character called "Feeéeeéeetus" and tried to convert people to the "holy womb") - can't say I have a whole lot of interest in it, but there is a nonzero chance that I will eventually be dragged into it here. It's ponies, after all.

I´ve played so many mmos, I played WoW for about 7 years, since the beta, and of course vanilla WoW was the best. I played Guild Wars, and i´m going to buy GW2, I played city of heroes and villians. Warhammer age of reckoning, which i think were better than WoW, but none of my friends played it, so i went back to WoW.

I were in guilds in all of these games, but I hope that herds in LOE are nothing like that, saying ding everytime you level up and things like that, and saying grats on achievments.

About TESO, I wonder how they´re gonna pull it off, since all the other Elder scrolls games were singleplayer, I think they´re going to have a hard time making it into a online game, and all the fans of the other Elder scrolls games are probably going to flame it, I´ve played Morrowind, oblivion and skyrim, and those are the best rpgs i´ve played, personally I don´t want any people bothering me while I play, I play games in my own way, but i´m not going to judge it until I play it myself.

Post by: Travius Trott on 2012 May 29, 05:56:46
Oh, on the topic of MMOs, I've tried quite the few, most noteworthy for me I would say is WoW and Mabinogi.
The former is mostly because it was a way for my family to have some fun together, yes my parents play it, both in very high levels, I left it mostly because it seemed to me that everything in the gave was centred around your level. One could not become a mater blacksmith without being in level 85 too, annoyed me to no end that it was all about how epic you were, and always there would be some that are way stronger than you.
Heck, it even infected the guild system, and most, if not all, guilds are now another way to grind to get the highest level, and one have to be lvl 85 to get be able to level the guild up prober.
Pardon that rant about levels, I'm just not fond of it being central to everything in a game.

As for Mabinogi, I really like it's skill system, and combat system, though I admit combat is fairly hard, especially with high latency. But also you can still play it without hurting anything ingame, which is a thing I really hope that LoE will have too, I mean really, a pony killing something in blood-lust, something I hope not all will do.
Back to Mab, the reason I rarely play it any-more is because it's clearly too hard to manage by those that have the rights to it, as there are a huge list of errors that only the management and support staff could fix, even the EU servers were closed down because they had somehow failed to update them prober when they upgraded the generation. So, no new cards to new players, until they closed it down.

As for TESO, I will try it when it's complete, and I do hope it will be grand.
But as Daswed said, they have as of yet only made singleplayer games, so I'm mighty curious to see if they manage to do it right, or completely wrong.

Also, LoE will be the first where I will try to be social, all other games I've only played with friends.
This herd was also something to kick it up with,  me being social.

Well let's see... How about we talk about our main interests / hobbies? I don't know. I can't think of longevous topics. It's up to us to keep them going by asking questions and elucidating and telling stories and relating anecdotes and making arguments and analysing points of view and I'm getting away from myself.

For me it's music. I'm an instrumentalist, though I also enjoy singing. I play soprano and bass clarinet and bassoon primarily, as well as tenor sax, flute, and I'm working on trumpet and ukulele. I intend to start practicing jazz improvisation this summer. Any suggestions?
Title: Re: [Herd] Travellers Blessing.
Post by: PrincessParfait on 2012 May 30, 04:26:42
That's really cool! I always admired people who could play a bunch of instruments 'cause I can't so I don't think you'd want my suggestions.  :P I always wanted to learn to play the piano.

I guess Mine would be drawing and animating x3 And I'm a messy painter as well. There's something so relaxing about mixing paint and coloring on a blank canvas and just paint whatever I want. Makes me happy. Lately I've been learning watercolors <3 Sculpting stuff is fun too.
Traveling is another of my interests too.
Title: Re: [Herd] Travellers Blessing.
Post by: Travius Trott on 2012 May 30, 06:31:06
Music eh?
I've never learned to play anything, though I love listing to instrumentals, especially string based music hits a soft spot in me, organs too.
Have recently taken to like brass instruments.

As for me, I'm also into drawing, though never learned to paint prober, and stick to paper, pencil, and digital arts. Mostly pony as of late, but have started going back to animeish or mangaish style. But I have sporadic outbursts of art, and sometimes I can not even start drawing because of a lack of inspiration.

I also love learning about cultures, mostly far eastern, such as Chinese and Japanese. Which have also given me a love for travelling, it's not for nothing that Travius is a travelling pony.
Title: Re: [Herd] Travellers Blessing.
Post by: daswed on 2012 May 30, 07:17:32
I´ve never learned to play a instrument, but I was once told that I was a great singer. I just like listening to music, and I´ll listen to anything, from classical to death metal. When it comes to drawing i´m probably the worst there is, I can´t draw at all.

One thing I think i´m good at is writing, I never write fanfics or anything like that, but if I find something that I like, I can write so much about it.

Another thing we can talk about is where everypony lives, I live in Sweden.
Title: Re: [Herd] Travellers Blessing.
Post by: Sotha on 2012 May 30, 11:41:05
I listen to a lot of classical and jazz and a whole bunch of other stuff including Splashdown, Queen, Planet X, Radio Head, Porcupine Tree, etc. Like downtempo and trip hop.

I can't really do piano either. I mean, I have a good understanding of chord structure, at least (with a little bit of theory), but as a solely wind player, I can't really look at music with the perspective piano players need to have (from my understanding), what with having more than one voice at a time, playing the overall flow of the song. It's something I need to work on.

I've never really been able to draw, though. The most I could do was construct abstract patterns. I started trying to sketch ponies, but it fell out of my interest. So eh. It's cool that you two enjoy it, though. Did you do your own avatars, by any chance? (this is to Travius and Parfait)

I much prefer game design. No, not programming (though I intend to start working on that too... someday). I mean traditional games. Abstract strategy board games, playing card games, CCG's (at least that style), table top strategy war games, themed board games, etc.

I like to express myself via design. Which somehow poetry fits into, though visual art doesn't. I suppose it's how related language is to logic with syntax and expression of rhetoric. Guess that's why I'm studying to be a chemical engineer, at least.

I've always wanted to travel (and fully intend to.... someday), but have never left the U.S. Huh. :c
I'm in California.

Heheh, but really, we're getting to know each other better because there's not much else to talk about right now, and I bid you welcome!

So nice to see you guys growing and getting along fabulously!

You know, we Haylanders seem inactive, but that's because our primary means of interaction is through a Skype group, I'd highly recommend this, it's a great way to get to know your comrades and can be quite a good laugh at times, anyway just thought I'd rear my ugly head in your thread to see how ya'll were doin', better be off to do really super secret important herd stuff now (not really, but still  ^-^) Take care, Travellers Blessing!

A Skype group is a good idea. And we could definitely use it for vocal chat in the game.

Well, then there's the issue of someponies not liking to talk over skype.
Like me, and with my recently broken mic it's rather hard to have voice chat.

But it could be arranged to make some kind of herd chat over it.

Yeah, that can be an issue, but it's always nice to have a more conveinient way to chat to one another, even in text, that said, I've seen it's helped alot of people handle thier dislike of chatting over skype to have people they already know as friends chatting themselves, not that I am trying to be patroniseing to you, sorry If I sound that way ><, but even as a simple text chat it's a nice Ice Breaker 'n' a place for your herd to chill and have a laugh with one another

Ozzy: I'm not sure I understand all of what you're trying to say here. It's helped a lot of people handle their dislike of chatting over Skype (do you mean voice or text?) to have people they already talk to or at least know from the forum talking on Skype, so as to draw them into it / add a layer of familiarity to the system?

Travius: When you say you don't like to talk over Skype, do you mean you don't like using it period? Or that you just don't like voice chatting over it? 'Talk' is kind of ambiguous when used in this context.

Besides, isn't Skype structured in such a way that you would just invite a bunch of different users (herd members) to join together into a group conversation, which is by default text-only. And then at any time someone in the group can start a call, which invites everyone online to the voice chat, which they can decline or drop out of at any time?

Sorry I suppose I was a little vague, I meant using thier voice in skype, and yeah you have a point, if it's a particularly large group of people it can be pretty impractical

There is also a skype group the LoE members as a whole, that seems to be working pretty fine so far allowing anyone to call at any time, that has around 20+
participants so far

In any case it was just a suggestion I thought I'd make since I've done it with my Herd (Which yes is smaller) and it's worked out wonderfully, always nice speaking to ya'll, safe travels to ya  ^-^

Lookong at the herd members so far it seems pretty friendly, and i've always liked travellers' associations.  It doesn't seem to be closed just yet, so here's my app:

OC Name: Feather Scroll and Juniper Blossom (i have two oc's)
Forum Name: The Wandering Magus
Activity: (Note that I will not judge on activity) uncertain what you want here, but i am pretty much around every day and plan on being that way in the future when the game comes out.  I will probably be in the nearest quest location in-game, trying to do all the quests in sequence.
Planned race: (If not decided yet then leave blank.) One to be unicorn, still deciding on juniper.
Reason to join: (Any reason will do really, I am just more curious on that regard) i am interested in travelling based herds and soloers in general (which travellers generally are).  If you're not soloers then i am also interested in being part of a group of wanderers, possibly helping out combat-wise as a crowd control-healer-buffer (i played loremaster in LOTRO).

Oh, two new members!
shall write ya up right away.

As for the skype thing, I love skype use it now in fact to chat with some groups, it's just that I voiced my concern that many does not want to use voice chat, and thus would make it seem required to have a skype, which might cause some to leave, and less that would join.
But on that note, it might be a good idea to have a chat, but also that it's mostly for chilling until the game is out.

I refuse to practice anything. I've been belittled and shamed for even attempting the simplest of things for the first time, expecting me to get everything correct. It's happened too many times before, and it's how my screwed up parents raised me.

skill is only 1% talent.  99% of it is just plain hard work.

You know, being able to write is also a great thing, take me, I can not write a good story to safe my live.
So if I wanted to make a comic it would likely be boring and plain to boot.
I tend to work in a too systematic manner to write stories, so I stick with making systems for roleplaying.

And I myself have only learned Drawing trough practice, practice, practice, and more practice, and still I get stuck at the poses.

Say, I've noticed that the other herds are making their own banners.
Should I make one for this blessing too, or do you all think it's rather unneeded?


A big herd should have a big banner.

If you could do that, you would go down in history.

Although it may be unneeded now, we won't have to worry about it in the future. And it would be a nice  little addition and would give the thread a bit more color. I think you should do it!

I'm envisioning something of field at sunset, and a group of silhouetted ponies traveling across the field in front of the sun. The herd name could be cast over the sun, or in the field.

I don't know, just a quick idea.

If you have the skills to do so! ^-^ maybe with the name in Unical lettering? (the font used for "NO ADMITTANCE EXCEPT ON PARTY BUSINESS" in the Fellowship of the Ring)

I'm not the most artistically inclined; I'm sure that other members here are much more talented than I.
Nevertheless I'll see if I can't throw something together and see if my idea is worth anything or not.
So I'll take a crack at it tomorrow... after exams.   >A<


This is the lettering you mentioned, right. Because if it is, I love it!

I was thinking, since Travelers blessing is a old herd according to the backstory, the banner should have something to do with it, unicorns as you said. A really old banner since the founding of the herd.

the font that was mentioned earlier, in the spoiler.  And all right then, if you think so.  I would think maybe adjusting contrast and exposure and stuff, and using alpha to selection, and then crop, might work.  And idk if you vector, but if you want i can try in gimp.

I think I will end with making three things, a herd seal, a herd icon, and a banner.
The first one, small and only a silhouette of the icon, which will be a horseshoe with a unicorn in it and the herd's name written under it.
And the banner is more tricky, as it's kinda hard to make something look old and wide at the same.

And the icon/shield be like those medieval shields!

Banner, how about a faded, stained, slightly worn at the edges parchment with curled ends?

Hmm. A horseshoe with a unicorn silhouette / cameo. That makes a lot of sense. Good one, there.

If I had anything to suggest, it would be that traveler's lanterns are cool, but then I'm just a Morrowind fan.

As far as titles go, would it not be best to figure out what the different roles are actually for first?

I thought the titles were kind of obvious, but here's my idea:

Trailmaster - head of the herd
The Watch - fighters and tanks, main physical protection for travellers
Guides - know-it-all in terms of location.  Have the layout of the Everfree memorized, etc.
Scouts - fast fliers with stealth, scout out locations for dangers and also look for potential recruits
Trailblazers - scout out new locations, like the scout. Can be merged.
Trackers - search for lost ponies and items, seek out mobs, quests, etc.
Loremasters - know-it-all in terms of spells and abilities, buff and debuff experts, cc, etc
Songmasters - know-it-all in terms of stories and quests, roleplayers, etc
Recruits - new members who don't have a role yet

Sounds like it could be cool... just keep in mind that as we know almost nothing about gameplay so far, there's a good chance that half of those roles won't be possible or relevant. Even if they are, I imagine most people wouldn't want to limit themselves to a single role.

But like I said, it's cool!

i was just kind of basing it off the whole "warchers of the roads" sort of theme, and trying to think of the mmo equivalent.  I imagine recruits would like to know who's the expert at what and stuff, or who to hide behind if they're being chased by a mob.

But instead of Songmasters - how about Bards? And instead of Loremasters - how about Scholars? Simply because one does not simply become a master at the second rank XD.

Clearly the title should depend on your skill level, and if you were bad at singing you'd be stuck with "Screecher" forever.

In seriousness, I'd kind of prefer Bard or Minstrel to Songmaster, just 'cause the former two sound more musically diverse. ovO

Minstrels and Bards are storytellers, not always musicians.  They can tell the stories while lightly strumming a lute or just telling slightly poetically without music.  Music is just another way to tell the story!

For a pure storyteller, Loremaster would be a good title, but that one's already been taken.
Maybe switching around some names and making the skills-expert Scholar and the stories-expert Loremaster?

When I hear 'Songmaster', I think of a group sitting around a fire. I think camping.

Bard has always felt like a more solitary affair. But that's just me.

I really think it just depends on the sense Travius is trying to go for with this herd.

When I hear bard, I think of a pony who travels town to town, telling tales of epic proportions, and sings songs that will be remembered through the ages.

Who is accepted, welcome here!

Also, I'll try to get the 'icons' and banners sketched this day, and uploaded.
I kinda, failed the first attempt, the banner ended looking like something from a western.

And now for the title things, they do sound interesting, I wanted to keep ranks off this herd to make all as equal as possible.
It's sounds like a good idea.
But also, that more players can have said 'title' or purpose.
I'd have to think more about it before I can tell my proposals here, I'm still reading all the info trough.

we fixed the titles so that there was only one "master" (you) and all the other ranks except recruit were equal  ^-^

Yes, I did notice, pardon my absence, a lot of unexpected things happened this weekend, so I could not properly read trough all the proposals.
But well, if all do agree on adding the titles, specialisations, or what to call them, then I shall not stop it from happening.
In the olden herd I tried to start, from the dark times, I called myself main spokescolt, to mark that it was only that I handled all the essentials of the herd, but did not 'rule' it. But Trailsmaster have a  nicer tone to it, I'd say.


As for the picture/images you proposed, I do quite like them, pardon that I had not quite been able to show what I have a of yet, as I've had a quite busy weekend.
Especially that the unicorn is cloaked, I should also try to use that as reference. I'll try to mix up something this day, I should not have any unwanted disturbances this day.
I will also try to get some useful stuff for my programs, as I think I will make it in vector, but with filters that make it more 'olden' and such.

Got some previews done, with different fonts, I'm not sure which of them to use though, and neither am I sure of the dimensions a banner should have.
Spoiler: Examples in here. • show

Font A

Font B

Font E

Would also like to comment on the icon, if that's okay. I think it would look better with the horseshoe the other way up, like in Magnus' pictures, because it is difficult to see the horseshoe unless you look closely.

So, I'm rather sure I will work with "Font C" then.

Now the question is, should I make one for each 'title' or just keep it with 'member' and 'Herd-master for now?

Maybe just put up all the titles, and have members choose which one to put in their sig?

Trailmaster - head of the herd
Guides - know-it-all in terms of location.  Have the layout of the Everfree memorized, etc.
Lorekeepers/Scholars- know-it-all in terms of spells and abilities, buff and debuff experts, cc, etc
Bards- know-it-all in terms of stories and quests, roleplayers, etc
The Watch - fighters and tanks, main physical protection for travellers
Trackers - search for lost ponies and items, seek out mobs, quests, etc.
Scouts - fast fliers with stealth, scout out locations for dangers and also look for potential recruits
Recruits - new members who don't have a role yet

Then I shall make it with all these titles, and then cut the titles down later, was it not agreed that Bards had another name, Minstel or something like that?

I can rather easily change these, they are rather simple, once I had finished the the basic stuff of it.

Now the question remains, I feel that we lack a few titles that I usually associate with travellers, Traders and Tinkers.
The former is kinda obvious.
The latter, could also be called artisans, and are those that craft stuff, and such.
Also thinking that scout and guide could be mashed together, to better fit the origens of this herd as a blessing.
And the final proposal that recruits are renamed to Associates.

Well, personally I am most sure that crafts and the like is to be added to this project, as I'm fairly certain that combat and chatting will not be the only features the game will precent.

if scouts and guides are combined, maybe keep it as guide? To let ponies know who to ask for directions.

Trader sounds like a good name, although now it becomes less a Blessing and more just a common band of travellers.  Same with tinkers/artisans, since they probably need crafting facilities, which are difficult to move, if not impossible.  This would sort of invalidate their "traveller" status.

Associates is a good name.

I had in mind keeping it as guide.

Also, Tinkers are defined by that they are travelling craftsmen, or ponies in this case, hence why I chose that word.
Stuff like tin-smiths, silversmiths, and also tailors uses little to no facilities for their work.
The only reason I brought up Artisans was that it's a more known therm for craft-colts.
And, the first ideas for this herd was also to keep it as a place to help travellers, thus Traders and Tinkers are quite welcome here, from my perspective that is.

Ah, i see.  Well, i suppose having a sort of association free for various travellers seeking protection would be useful.  If that is how the herd is, then tinkers and traders would be quite welcome, yes.  I had been more expecting a sort of "rangers of the wilds" theme from LOTR x3

wouldn't it be cool to have an enemy herd? We have no reason to hate any herds at the moment but i think it would make rp more juicy!

What? Like highwaymen? Highwayponies? Those who seek to exploit travellers for their own personal gain? A Traveller's Bane?

I approve of Associates, as well as the proposed changes for absorbing Scouts into Guides, and recognising the traders and artisans. (I feel that artisan would give a better representation for the same reason as choosing Associate over Recruit. One would not necessarily want to be, for example, "a craftsman (usually itinerant) who mends pots, kettles, and other metal household utensils, esp. in a clumsy, bungling, or imperfect way" (oed.com). It just seems less directed than artisan.)
Though I'm sure this infrastructure of our herd will need to be reworked when the game is actually released, I suppose it is only for the best that we get things as ironed out as possible at each step of the way.

Well, for an enemy herd, I would never, on purpose, provoke, annoy, or otherwise do something to spark a rivalry, but it might happen if a group appears that have conflicting interests, exploit, and is a general nuisance to travellers.
And in such case, it will likely start with a polite confrontation, which may or may not solve the differences. It's the last resort to end in a negative view from another group, even if this group prove to be one of the most powerful ingame.

And, I'm glad to see other opinions on the subject of artisans or tinkers, it's true that the former sounds more refined, but the latter is likely more correct in this context, as I mentioned before, tinkers are those with a profession in the crafts, but have no single place to stay.

Also, I'll start working on the new banners then, with associate, trader, and artisan/tinker, the last one I will make one for both and will put up a poll for it.

Quite true, I might have to rewrite all of the titles, and they are after all, purely symbolic as of yet. Likely I will work these out as symbolic 'ranks' within the herd or something like that.

The original intent was simply to let others in and out of the herd know what your intended specialization is, not make ranks x3. Aside from trailmaster, of course.

Indeed, quite true, and that's also how I caught it.
But games with 'guilds' tend to have 'ranks' where on is given more privileges when having said 'rank'.
So, I presume that LoE will also have a herd system alike to that, and so that when in game the pony is marked with a symbolic rank, that does not affect anything, save for being a marker.
All this will depend on how it will be in LoE though.

Umm, now that I think about it, it's rather unlikely that LoE will include 'rank' names that can be changed and are visible to public, of the same reason one can not draw a CM for their own character, it might be used to be offensive, so, scratch the thought of naming the ranks for an in game effect.
Pardon that I did not think that one trough prober.

Though, there might be 'unlockable' titles, as suffixes and prefixes.
As for your question, I have no idea, I think it might be applied to the title itself, with a tag that says 'suffix' or 'prefix'.

If I could just suggest a more specific title/banner for an alchemist.

With the possibility of potion making, I'd say it's a profession that deserves its own banner.

For instance, an Inn in Ponyville (or somewhere else!) would be a good place. We could then organize Traveller's meetings, organize tours/missions from there and just roleplay.

It's a good thing to think about now, but at this point it's hard to determine a location, seeing as we know so little about the game.
   We know of Ponyville, Everfree forest, Canterlot, and Cloudsdale so far, unless I missed someplace, and I think we can cross out Cloudsdale for obvious reasons.

It's a good thing to have in mind now, but presently it won't do much good as we really don't know much about the locations.

Well, I do concur with Lurk on this, an inn, taven, or something like that would prove a fine place to stay.
And well, I do not know the exact locations and such. But I'm fairly confident that there will be places like them.

I don´t know all the towns that are in the game yet, but Cloudsdale is not a option, because you´ll need to create wings for all the unicorns and earthponies or carry them up there. Canterlot could be a option, but it seems pretty far away, since they need to go b train there in the show. And the Everfree forest is way to dangerous to be an HQ. I think Ponyville seems the best because it looks like it´s in the middle of everything.
But if they create a map with all the towns in it, we can choose which town we think is the best location for the HQ, it may not even be a town, it can just be a inn by a road somewhere in Equestria.

As long as Watchers are on the outer ring the Everfree can still be used I think.  Plus there's probably at least one rest location, Zecora's hut for instance (which is going to be in the game).

As for the HQ, lore-wise, having the HQ in Ponyville doesn't make much sense. Canterlot would, but depending on how the game maps are put together, Canterlot might end up being way out of the way for being the capital city of the Equestrian principality (kingdom?). Then again, with the racial trifecta and starting locations, it would make sense for the game to be in a loop (perhaps vertically) between the three starting locations. Eh... hopefully there will be an inn or some such establishment in middle-ish area or city.

depends on the location :]. Obviously not in a boss dungeon.  But i imagine there would be places with relatively low-level mobs that shouldn't be too hard to clear out and keep out for the Watchers.  The one-hit free xp mobs, i mean.

Mobs like hydras i would expect to have limited range.

In LOTRO (yes, i keep coming back to that, but seriously it was the game where i had the most experience with groups) we would sometimes just meet in this one glade filled usually with lvl-7 wolves, and the lvl-75 guardians just wipe the place clean for the lower lvl members to come in, and then we have our chats like that.

I think that while it would definitely be good to have an established presence in the Everfree, it would be a little nonsensical as our HQ. But that depends on how the game world is laid out.

Were this pretty much anything but a video game, most travelers would seek to avoid the Everfree Forest, so as not to risk any of its extra dangers. And likewise, Traveler's Blessing as a whole would likely be centered in Canterlot (thinking back to its story), or at least in a hub of travel. Hypothetically speaking, we could just be the "Southwestern branch" or something along those lines depending on where we are based (e.g. Ponyville, that backwater town). We can always retcon the story to fit what works best logistically.

Hmm... Your point makes sense, though at that point they wouldn't be called HQ's. Because, you know, there can be only one headquarters.
Many smaller meeting places -- or perhaps gathering places -- in interspersed locations including the Everfree, and one central HQ (for, uh... larger meetings) in... a central location. Perhaps Canterlot. But I've been over this.

Since, we´re travelers, we could have many small HQs.

Fellow Watcher!

Hmm... Your point makes sense, though at that point they wouldn't be called HQ's. Because, you know, there can be only one headquarters.
Many smaller meeting places -- or perhaps gathering places -- in interspersed locations including the Everfree, and one central HQ (for, uh... larger meetings) in... a central location. Perhaps Canterlot. But I've been over this.
depending on how big the herd gets and how many players are online, multiple gathering locations might work... [glow=red,2,300]But i don't see too many members actually online consistently.[/glow]

True, even I see it. By the way, about those titles. Is someone giving those or we choose actually what fits us?

so much conversation, not enough time.

and I suspect that Travius will have distributed the titles by the time the game starts.(hopefully  :P)

We should locate the HQ in either the center most town; or at the town more known for commerce, as it would theoretically get more traffic.

Dunno if ponies here like it or not, but made a little song for you all.  Not much, work in progress x3

Far over the Canterlot Mountains tall,
To Luna's keep, Celestia's hall.
Timberwolves howl in the dark;
The dragons come to leave their mark.
The clouds turn pink,
Our spirits sink,
Equestria fell to Discord's might,
But we returned, him for to smite!

Once again we climb the mountains tall,
In triumph over Discord's fall!
Our friendships held, our honesty stood strong.
Our kindness grew; our laughter in song
A generous gift
Friends to uplift.
The Traveller's Blessing, loyal knights,
We stand for everypony's rights!

I can't comment on the tune, as I have yet to listen to the Hobbit trailer and sing it out, but I can comment on a couple things.

The last line seems a little weak. We stand for everypony's rights? That's a bit generic. 'T'would be better if tailored more to what Traveler's Blessing's mission statement purportedly is. I imagine you're roughly following the story outlined in the title post?

You could probably add one to two verses in the middle to better flesh out the founding of the group, and what it actually did post-Discord. And then your second verse can act as a transition to a final verse (which would make five total, by how I'm drawing it out, which seems like a pretty good amount) set in present day to describe what Traveler's Blessing stands for today. Of course that all is only if you're trying to engage Valentine's background story in song.
And with such length, I'd also have to suggest melodic variation in perhaps the third and fourth verses, with a return to the theme at the end. Or whatever. You know what I mean.

The HQ, or meeting places, I would like to keep that till the game is out, or that we have a map of somekind to look at for reference.

And, a song? Mighty curious.
But I have to mention that this herd is not one that is to seek combat, only resorting to that rarely, this game will likely precent a lot of those rarities though.
Though, we are to be helping travellers in whatever way we can, though being a member makes it easier to help each other out, and be helped.

Well, strictly speaking it's not a rank, but more of a role, and as of yet I have no system to keep track of it, so just chose whatever one you want and use the banner for that.
If you can not decide then there is always the 'associate'.

So, I noticed that some 'alliance' group appeared.
'Herds of Equestria' they called it.

So here there is basically three choices, to join it, to stay out of it, or to go against it.
But I trust that the last option is one that I would not support, and I will leave a poll up for the other options, also feel free to voice your own opinion on the subject.
The main reason I am not all determined to have up join it is that I like to know just who this herd is allied to.

On the alliance, I think being a part of it would be good, although we should probably not be TOO reliant on it.  Maybe be a sort of cursory friend, but staying neutral?  Kind of like the Switzerland of herds?

I have no idea :P which verse should start with F-E-D-D ?

oh, and added some more verses, as requested!

Far over the Canterlot Mountains tall,
To Luna's keep, Celestia's hall.
Timberwolves howl in the dark;
The dragons come to leave their mark.
The clouds turn pink,
Our spirits sink,
Equestria fell to Discord's might,
But we returned, him for to smite!

But vict'ry was tempered with mourning.
Suffering ponies, our actions scorning
Showed us the pain that Discord had left,
And though we'd won, of joy we were bereft.
For traveller's aid,
A Blessing we made.
From fair Canterlot out to the world
We travelled Equestria with banners unfurled.

And over the years our numbers grew small,
For our group unicorns alone did call.
And so at last we opened up our herd,
And in non-unicorns our group conferred.
And then once more
In days of yore,
We walked the paths Equestrian
To help the lost pedestrian.

Now, long after those dark days,
Our Watchers strong still guard the ways.
And though we finished all our founders willed,
And we the land with peace have filled
We carry on,
With every dawn,
To finish now our herd's new goal:
To help each stallion, mare and foal.

Once again we climb the mountains tall,
In triumph over Discord's fall!
Our friendships held, our honesty stood strong.
Our kindness grew; our laughter in song
A generous gift
Friends to uplift.
The Traveller's Blessing, wanderer's friend,
Equestria's roads we still defend!


I think some of the verses screw with the melody a bit, but that also fits with the suggestion to change the tune around a bit for the middle verses.  What do you all think?

Hmmm... It could work out, 'cause timberwolves are evil and the next words proves it, so going down with tone should occur in exponentiation the... "fear"? =P
But after that, we would have to start "in" with... F? And go up by E-E-D or E-D-D.

I have no idea :P which verse should start with F-E-D-D ?

oh, and added some more verses, as requested!

Far over the Canterlot Mountains tall,
To Luna's keep, Celestia's hall.
Timberwolves howl in the dark;
The dragons come to leave their mark.
The clouds turn pink,
Our spirits sink,
Equestria fell to Discord's might,
But we returned, him for to smite!

But vict'ry was tempered with mourning.
Suffering ponies, our actions scorning
Showed us the pain that Discord had left,
And though we'd won, of joy we were bereft.
For traveller's aid,
A Blessing we made.
From fair Canterlot out to the world
We travelled Equestria with banners unfurled.

And over the years our numbers grew small,
For our group unicorns alone did call.
And so at last we opened up our herd,
And in non-unicorns our group conferred.
And then once more
In days of yore,
We walked the paths Equestrian
To help the lost pedestrian.

Now, long after those dark days,
Our Watchers strong still guard the ways.
And though we finished all our founders willed,
And we the land with peace have filled
We carry on,
With every dawn,
To finish now our herd's new goal:
To help each stallion, mare and foal.

Once again we climb the mountains tall,
In triumph over Discord's fall!
Our friendships held, our honesty stood strong.
Our kindness grew; our laughter in song
A generous gift
Friends to uplift.
The Traveller's Blessing, wanderer's friend,
Equestria's roads we still defend!


I think some of the verses screw with the melody a bit, but that also fits with the suggestion to change the tune around a bit for the middle verses.  What do you all think?

5 verses = 5 times song loop ovO

About this F-E-D-D : nevermind, forget it lol

EDIT:
Just found out:
Proper rhythm ends and "Equestria fell to Discord's might," and after this line I can't imagine how to sing "But we returned, him for to smite!"
Also, how do you think we should start second verse? First line doesn't fit with loop. I mean, it doesn't fit with "Far over bla bla bla".

I'm sorry! I still haven't actually listened to sound of the song and see about its rhythm. I'm too busy listening to Janelle Monae's The ArchAndroid right now...

The new verses are nice. The third feels a little weak story-wise -- I mean, while it was a part of the history of the group, it just doesn't feel like material one would want to epic in song, but that's just me. I really like the fourth, though. Especially its opening lines, with "Our Watchers strong still guard the ways."


As for this Herds of Equestria business, while their goal seems amicable, I think we should remain respectively neutral. Not join it, but not be against it. If the entire purpose of Traveler's Blessing is oriented towards travelers, it just seems unsuiting to extend itself past that.
Also: It seems that I can't vote...

The third verse can be left out if you want x3 I just decided to summarize the whole thing since that's what you suggested before.  Any other suggestions for improving the song?  What do you think of the ending to the last verse now?  I changed it a bit after you noted it sounded a bit weak x3

I can't seem to vote either...

When you say you voted yesterday, does that mean that you voted on this poll yesterday, or that you voted on a different poll yesterday. Because my hypothesis was that it is the ponies who voted on the previous poll held on this thread that are unable to vote on this one.

Mmm, yeah. There's a subtle difference between summarising a story and in my words, epic-ing it into song. Or I'm just spouting nonsense.

I like the revised fifth verse. The ending actually feels personal to Traveler's Blessing.

It´s like Minecraft, When I played it, it was before everyone were doing videos about it, so I didn´t even know you could punch blocks, but I kept playing, and after awhile I figured out how to craft things, and built my first dirt house. Games aren´t harder than what you make them.

True, but I like to think if I know what to do, it will take faster to accomplish, and I won´t get to play the game as long as i would want to.

also, I notice a lot of associates didn't bother choosing a title, or if they did didn't put the banner in their sig even if they don't have anything there yet.

Maybe they´re lazy, or doesn´t know how to pick their signatures, or maybe they´re waiting until the game gets released to choose what they want to play.
well, i hope not too lazy 'cause once the game starts we've got some TRAVELLING to do ovO
Not laziness for me, just an inability to decide which title I would like x3

And I have to switch to the title from my hearties.. :'(
Dang those new signature requirements!  >:(

There´s nothing forcing you to change it, not that i´ve seen.
nah, it's just that you can only have one image, and Trilight probably wanted both but had to decide on the Herd :]

Yus... :c

it's 12:03, afternoon, where I am x3

oh, and I wrote a few more verses for that song, could you please take a look and tell me what you think? x3

Far over the Canterlot Mountains tall,
To Luna's keep, Celestia's hall.
Timberwolves howl in the dark;
The dragons come to leave their mark.
The clouds turn pink,
Our spirits sink,
Equestria fell to Discord's might,
But we returned, him for to smite!

But vict'ry was tempered with mourning.
Suffering ponies, our actions scorning
Showed us the pain that Discord had left,
And though we'd won, of joy we were bereft.
For traveller's aid,
A Blessing we made.
From fair Canterlot out to the world
We travelled Equestria with banners unfurled.

And o'er the years our numbers grew small,
For unicorns alone did our group call.
And so at last we opened up our herd,
And in non-unicorns conferred.
And then once more
In days of yore,
We walked the paths Equestrian
To help the lost pedestrian.

Now, long after those dark days,
Our Watchers strong still guard the ways.
And though we finished all our founders willed,
And we with peace the land have filled
We carry on,
With every dawn,
To finish now our herd's new goal:
To help each stallion, mare and foal.

Once again we climb the mountains tall,
In triumph over Discord's fall!
Our friendships held, our honesty stood strong.
Our kindness grew; our laughter in song
A generous gift
Friends to uplift.
The Traveller's Blessing, wanderer's friend,
Equestria's roads we still defend!

That's why I see 50 posts per page, makes it a lot easier to see what's happened.
Mostly just chatting and talking about the new signature things.
To which I would like to add that it's perfectly fine if ponies chose not to use the banner, it's merely for those that want to say that they are proud members of this herd.

I like the song, and while  the first verse is more fitting to Canterlot in general, which is good by the way, as that where the blessing started, but well I'd say that the blessing is not that old though.
of what I understand Discord's time is more than 1000 years in the past.

Three posts while I wrote this...

And, two of them revealed that two ponies here live in same time as i.

QuoteLong ago, after the twin sisters banished the evil Discord with the Elements of Harmony, Equestria was finally free to grow
and prosper as its founders had wished.  Unfortunately, the chaos that Discord wrought upon the land was great and
widespread, leaving many ponies, though free, still no better off then they were under his rule.

That's Discord's rule... right?

I had to decide on the herd and take my OCs out of my signature :'(

Group hug? :'(


PS. Magus, what happened in Fallout Equestria? Did the main character find this pop star mare?
*group hug* :')

huh? Lilpip became filly-fooling marefriends with Homage and Velvet Remedy married Calamity...

Hmh, through all what I've read, I thought Lilpip will find Velvet and they will live together on the upper grounds.
Uh... how far are you in your reading?
Spoiler: show
She found Velvet singing as a sort of prisoner to a band of slavers who worshipped/served a dragon, killed all the slavers, used grenades to explode the dragon from the inside, and went on other adventures wherein she found that her crush on Velvet had been all facade and that she actually hated Velvet as a pony rather than an idol.


I didn't read too much of it. Just few chapters lol It didn't actually catch me enough to keep on reading.
Spoiler: show
Why did she hate her?

That's sad, you should keep reading, it gets better after chapter 20 ^-^  and EPIC by chapter 40!
Spoiler: show
Turns out Velvet is so pacifist she even would SUPPORT slavery, and refuses to kill until a particularly horrific event in the later chapters causes her to snap and massacre scores of Raiders who were holding gladitorial fights to the death for three-year-old foals IN FLUTTERSHY'S COTTAGE.  Lilpip herself snapped at a town called Arbu, where she found out everypony there was a cannibal and went on a rage killing stallion, mare and foal without any regard to age or innocence.  It gets... dark.  But it's always darkest before the dawn, and as Pinkie said, even while high out of her mind and manically depressed on PTM drugs, "it will all end with sunshine and rainbows".  And indeed it does.


Spoiler: show
FLUTTERSHY'S COTTAGE?! EPIC! I'd love to see a cartoon out of this :3 :3 :3

Ack, I leave this topic just to sleep, and it gets 5 more pages...Do you people ever sleep?!


That's why I see 50 posts per page, makes it a lot easier to see what's happened.
Mostly just chatting and talking about the new signature things.
To which I would like to add that it's perfectly fine if ponies chose not to use the banner, it's merely for those that want to say that they are proud members of this herd.

I like the song, and while  the first verse is more fitting to Canterlot in general, which is good by the way, as that where the blessing started, but well I'd say that the blessing is not that old though.
of what I understand Discord's time is more than 1000 years in the past.

Three posts while I wrote this...

And, two of them revealed that two ponies here live in same time as i.

You live in Denmark right? I´d rather be a Dane than a Swede.

There should be a comma between "Denmark" and "right", Mr. Perfect ^-^

oh, and Travius, you might want to take a look at this:

Quote from: Equestrian on 2012 Jun 15, 12:12:28

This is not an alliance.
An enemy of one herd is not necessarily an enemy of another and a friend of one herd is not necessarily a friend of another.
You may become allies amongst any of the herds, those whose become members and those who have not.

There are more details about this treaty should spring up through the evolution of gameplay. Enjoy! Politics :yay:

Reason to join: I love traveling, I love helping and I think it's better that I join a group whose people I will (eventually) grow familiar with and can chat with them every day than to play alone.

Accepted.
And, well I myself have my doubts once in a while, that's why I made my OCs, so I have less of a chance to back down from this race.
In any case there will be the option of making three characters to one's account so, I do not stress on it.

I'll have to use my imagination too, as I can't be a zebra/pegasus. (Pegabra? Zebrasus? I have no idea...)

But I suppose an average pegasus will just have to do. I'll imagine the stripes are there.

I mean how much more species could there be? Zebra, cow, griphon, donkey....nothing more that i can think off as now  ovO

Well i hope someday they  decide to add a couple more races  :0 i mean..right now they are making the game and everything...they should concentrate  on making the space and the cities and all of that...but when the game is done, maybe a couple expansions  ovO  lol

I mean how much more species could there be? Zebra, cow, griphon, donkey....nothing more that i can think off as now  ovO
Would say minotaur...but i think we should stay with characters that stand with two legs  lol , and iron will´s sheep assistants didnt even said a word, and i would leave Alicorns out of the page for now, they seem over powered.


Zebra.... Yes.  ovO
Then I will be a happy pony zebra mix....thingy. Whatever you call it.
goat? llama? buffalo? deer?

Money? I will pay a good 60 bucks easily to keep this game going. Well, if it turns out as good as we all hope it will be.

Maybe they should do something like Minecraft did...sell cheap access in Alpha, make it more expensive as time goes on  ovO

Indeed, and if it ever becomes Pay-to-win they will most likely be sued, though they might accept donations to keep up the servers once the game is up.

I tend to avoid MMO's where you can buy items that improve your performance in game with real money. That's just unfair and should be punished by banishment to the moon.

Agreed. I assume stuff like that is mostly the province of shady Korean MMOs, although I'm sure there are others.  :/

I´m not playing any MMOs at the moment, but here´s another example: In Team Fortress 2, there´s some servers where you can buy premium accounts on, and if you do that you´ll get cheats on that server, such as unlimited ammo, don´t have to reload their guns, more health and not being able to catch on fire, and those are just some of the cheats you can get, but fortunately the people who are premiums, they are terrible at the game even with the cheats, so they are just a little bit harder too kill.

But it´s different in a MMO, because if a player buys power you may not even be aware of it, you might never see this player, perhaps not even be on the same server, but in TF2, the server where the premium players are, are usually the largest server with the most players on, and are the most fun to play on because so many random things happen on them. So it effects the game more.

For those that want to play a game for fun, without paying, it's generally bad.

Huh?
What is the problem?

Disappeared o.O


Odd, I see them perfectly fine.
From where have they vanished?

Weird, Bard's title doesn't appear for me.
Maybe your browser blocked images from certain sites? What do you see instead of the title?

Error lol And I'm using photobucket myself.
x3 would it work if uploaded to, say, imgur?

Totally no idea.
so you can see all the other banners, just not the bard one?

That's about right.

If being a unicorn is bad, I'll happily swap her into an Earth Pony!
And thanks for welcoming me! :D

Yeah! It starts like this:

Stop! Collaborate and listen!
Trott is back with a brand new invention!
Something - grabs a hold of him tightly!
Flow like a seapony, daily and nightly!


It's a pretty cool song. I wonder who wrote it?

Brilliant to see you join this herd!
I see you already have received a manner of welcome.

Also, that's what I expected I dare admit, as this herd is after all a blessing, but I had hoped to have more earth ponies.

Welcome! You're welcome! So, reading, eh? What have you been reading lately?

I've just been reading J.D. Salinger's Nine Stories, and T.S. Eliot's book of poems about cats (Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats), though I intend to continue a book on Molecular Symmetry and Group Theory and start The Three Musketeer's by Alexander Dumas.

Welcome to the herd Book Smarts! :D

Since we're apparently on the topic of books now, I was at an antique store a few days ago and saw a large box filled with a collection of Mark Twain novels for $95 and I'm seriously considering buying it. (Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is one of my favorite books)
I checked the date they were printed, and I think they were from the 1940's if I remember correctly, which is old enough to get me excited! I love it when books are old, and if I ever find a first edition of a book I feel the need to buy it, regardless if I know the book or not.  x3

But I did manage to find a 1944 printing of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass for $5 that day! I was a happy pony.

Well... It's a book about saving for the future by using the Stock Market and getting the most of tax free money accounts which will lead to  you having a rich retirement,

I'm hoping to finish this by July and go into reading the I ching

I never read The Adventure's of Tom Sawyer and his other books, but I did read the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn which was deep and at the same time enjoyable.

I've yet to read Tom Sawyer as well, though I have a copy I found at a flea market; I just keep forgetting about it. x3

I do remember finding an abandoned box of old books at the flea market that day. The oldest one I believe was from 1911, bad condition though.
     One of the books in there was a first edition copy of Lord Hornblower, which I've seen go for a decent amount.

This guy is selling the exact copy I found for $350.

My parents thought it would be a good way to prevent me from forgetting French since I wasn't living in a french-speaking environment. They were 140% right. Although I had many a sore throats during that reading.

I've read the first three Drizzt books. (up to Exile, I think). I've definitely enjoyed it so far, and intend to continue, but I just have so many piled up I'm not sure when I'll get around to it.

Same with the Discworld books. I've read Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic, and have many of the books downloaded from some random online archive, though I would prefer to read them physically.

I should get back to the Discworld books too. Read three awhile ago and enjoyed all of 'em.

Recently I found a book titled "classic short fiction" and started skimming it, expecting it to be boring. It turned out to be mostly full of really bizarre stuff, which is a good thing in my book (no pun intended). If any of you are remotely interested in ridiculous postmodern stuff, you should check out "Lost in the Funhouse" from that book - it's publicly available online, IIRC. Somewhat inappropriate for this forum though, so I'm not gonna post a link.

I've also been meaning to reread "A Series of Unfortunate Events" sometime...  X3

I remember them being children's novels; which I find odd because they're about this guy going through extreme lengths to murder these kids and, in the process, make their life a living hell.
Maybe it's because I haven't read them in years, but from what I remember about the books, they didn't seem very child oriented. Throughout each book it goes on and on about how miserable these kids are, and whenever a shred of happiness is given to them, it's shot out the window.

Well, just a warning - the ending doesn't wrap up all the mysteries, and so some people think it's kind of a frustrating ending.  :c I thought it was okay, but I would've liked some more answers too.

Just because they're full of dire, dramatic stuff and frequent murders doesn't mean they're not aimed at children - well, maybe somewhere around the 10-14 demographic. A lot of kids like that stuff! I read them when I was pretty young, and still loved them.

Come to think of it, I remember hearing a quote by the author about that - paraphrased, it was along the lines of "I write the kind of books I wanted to read as a child - books about horrible things happening to children." :/

More or less the same here I have to admit. Though I'm the Trailmaster.
But I did expect this huge amount of unicorns for a blessing, and then the word blessing is suddenly not off.

Though Races and classes are two different things, I'm sure.

According to the: What pony will you be thread, only 20% of the population are earth ponies, and 50.4% are pegasi.

I'm sure once the game releases, we'll see that earth ponies will wind up far superior to the others. lol

We don't know what they have in store for us, it could be one role for each pony species, or it could be every pony be any role they want.

I would be very impressed if they managed to implement that. But then you have to remember that Unicorns have magic, which the other two races don't. Same with Pegasi, but with wings.

While this is an interesting idea, it will most likely never work.

I still barley have a clue on what it is: a shooter game? A sandbox? I just have no idea, it never seemed to capture my interest.

a team-oriented shooter, mostly.

Everypony gets a role/specialization (heavy-weapons, bombs, sniping, spying, healing, incinerating, scouting, engineering-machines)
Then tries to beat the other team in one of three ways:
1: capture a flag (intel)
2: hold a point for x minutes
3: escort a bomb to a point within x minutes

Title: Re: [Herd] Travellers Blessing.
Post by: Wafflestomp on 2012 Jul 04, 22:32:11
I have played alot of MMOs. :p

I enjoy MMOs because I enjoy the group environment. It is my personal belief that video games are best played with other people. So I tend to gravitate towards the genre. So imagine my surprise when I find out there is a MMO that has ponies?!? :D
Title: Re: [Herd] Travellers Blessing.
Post by: Sea Foam on 2012 Jul 04, 22:47:58
     The reason I haven't played that many MMOs is because I never had anyone to play with. I would try to get some of my friends into a game, and it would work for about a week, but they would never get as into it as much as I hoped they would.  :'(
     At that point I would play on my own until I grew bored of the game and that wouldn't take long. Eventually I gave up on the idea all together.

     I'm just hoping that this game will be different, now that I have others to play the game with.

I loved that game, mostly just for the visuals and insane speed. I was pretty awful at it (died constantly) but it's still probably my favorite racing game... which isn't saying that much, I guess. That, and cruising around trying to smash the other racers without crashing myself was a lot of fun.

Oh look, I'm going to get to the finish line!

*some guy derps around and gets blue shell*

FFFFFFFFF-

*12th place*

True story. My little brother was playing and he lost because of this stupid shell.

All this talk of blue shells kind of makes me glad I never played Mario Kart games much  :I (outside of Super Mario Kart, which didn't have those things.)

Well, I did also play MK64 with friends a fair bit when I was younger, but always in that ridiculous "battle mode" thing, not so much the actual races.

If you guys are still taking applications I wouldn't mind joining.

OC Name: Cobalt Cloud (Link to bio in signature.)
Forum Name: Trege
Activity: Pretty active usually.
Planned race: Earth Pony
Reason to join: Well it would be nice to join a guild the moment the game
comes out, and another herd I wanted to join I think may be inactive now plus games are always more fun in groups and my OC
is based around defense so it would make a good defender, although tracker or guide would be cool too. (Do you have to earn the titles or just pick one?)

(Is this herd mainly roleplay or just general helpfulness to other players when the game comes out?)

Grand to see a new member, I shall write you up in just a minute.

As for your questions.
One does just choose a title for now, maybe later I might ask that people send me a message with their choosen title so I can add the info to the list.
And, well, this herd is made both for helpfulness and RPing, the latter for only a minor part. As the others said, mostly for helpfulness.

Ah cool, I like guilds that plan to help new players, it makes the community stay on good terms in MMOs, I'll probably be a tracker or a guide.  :D

If you are interested in a defender role, why not consider being a Watcher? Oh wait, that's what you meant by "a good defender." Trackers and Guides are cool, too. (I'm just biased.)

I seem to be having trouble setting one of the titles as my signature, I'm not good with forum code so can anyone give me an example of how to resize it to fit the same width and height as the other members herd titles?

Code (for Watcher) Select
[img width=475 height=112]http://i1128.photobucket.com/albums/m486/TraviustheTrotting/TBBLWatcher.png[/img]
Otherwise just substitute in the url for the image you want.

I'm liking this code thing. Other forums I've been in haven't had that option.

I went with guide it seems to fit my OC the best though I'll probably have him tank as well when the game comes out.

Thank you! Although I see why you think of that, it does not involve Voltorb. Simply, a combination of a part of my name, and a fascination with electricity.

I've thought about it a few times, but it's extremely annoying that if you leave the topic even for an hour or to go to bed, it will advance so many pages it's insanely difficult to catch up. One of the main reasons why I left the Pinkie'd RP. And I really, really didn't like leaving it as I not only wasted a bunch of time (and other people's time) but can't rejoin and "fit in" at the same time.

I much more prefer Real-Time RP. I am not sure if anyone here plays Warcraft 3, but one of these 2-4 hour RP maps is where I'm at. Everyone starts at the same point, and everyone stays more or less together throughout.

So unless there's some mythical voodoo technique to be a good RP'er on the forums, I'm really not eager to start.

Brohoof. And I also play LoaP and Fantasy Life on occasions. As for W4...Doubt it'll come out anytime soon, unfortunately. SC2 is still a major moneymaker w/ almost no competition for Blizz, WoW isn't doing too badly either. They really have no reason to spend money to make that game. But I would be preordering it for sure if it ever would come out.

 think that Mists of Pandaria will be the last expansion, or maybe not because they are grinding the game ofr money now. I played WoW for 7 years, but it wasn´t until Cataclysm came out when it started to be boring for me, and I only played it because my friends did, it got to easy.

If they make a WC4, I really wonder what they're going to do about the storyline... in WoW they killed off almost every villain in the series.

I haven't kept up with that stuff in awhile, but I'm pretty sure they've explicitly said MoP will not be the end.

And hey, I played WoW for 5 years then got fed up with Cataclysm too - although I also left because most of the people in my guild did, and the general community for that game is crap.

I loved that game when I first got it. I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of Fallout 4(which'll hopefully be on the Skyrim engine) whenever that comes out. I'm also pretty mad that Bethesda had to step in and cancel that Fallout MMO. It looked like it was going to be great. Hopefully TES Online will make up for it, but I honestly doubt it will. I prefer the Fallout universe.

I don´t think that TES online is going to be as good as the other games, because the elder scrolls games and fallout are meant to be singleplayer games, It may be a great game, but I like to play the games in my own pace. Fallout 4 in the skyrim engine would be epic.

I'm going to reserve judgement on TES Online, but I kind of share your skepticism, given how central immersion and exploration are to the other games in the series. And... now that I think of it, balance is very important in MMOs, and Bethesda has repeatedly shown that of all the things they can do right, game balance isn't one of them. Guess we'll have to see if they shape up.

Aha, found it!  Well, sort of.  In Google Cache.  Gotta love them caches, creating copies of previous universes and realities and all.  Let's see if I can get a copy here.

so, apparently pasting large amounts of text onto a google doc crashes it :P  but if anypony just searches "Travellers Blessing the Roleplay" on google you should be able to find the cached pages.  Apparently it was still around until July 2nd

Hello fokes! Just came by and say hello and wanted to join your herd for my OC. But i have a question, is it alright to have multiple herds (like am in one now)? Cause i used to do it with other past mmo's. What do you think?

I was wondering does anyone here plan to take their title seriously just for fun?  :D
I'll probably balance learning about the game maps and such with goofing off.

(PS Welcome Amtrack and Zaddist, It's cool seeing how big this herd is getting, and seeing more earth ponies too.)

(Also since we are allowed 3 characters in-game and if herds have no player limit I wonder if having all 3 characters join the same herd would be allowed.)

I'd be surprised if anyone had a problem with having multiple characters in a herd.

As for the title: definitely! I mean, it's probably a role I'd fall into even without the title. Years of theorycrafting and min-maxing in other games has left me permanently stuck in that mindset, I think - not that I mind.

Post by: The Wandering Magus on 2012 Jul 26, 21:44:01
I love roleplaying, as most of you who know me can probably tell, but I also love quests.  I'm thinking of maybe splitting my time between being a Bard and being a Lorekeeper, although if I learn enough of the layout of places like the Everfree I might become a Guide.  Bard is my main focus though
Title: Re: [Herd] Travellers Blessing.
Post by: Rissian on 2012 Jul 26, 21:54:40
I mainly like being a guide because of my OC, but I can remember game maps pretty easily after awhile, and it's fun when you have nothing else to do.

(I also love life skills in games, one of my Mabinogi characters is a tailor/combat witch.)

If I make a crafter character it will probably be a pegasus, I can imagine resources would be easier to get with them, and making stuff would probably be easier because of that.

My 3rd character will likely be my other OC Spring Melody, not sure what skills I'm going to have her learn in game yet.

Sometimes roleplaying is fun though I usually just goof off on them, I'm not a serious or hardcore roleplayer but it is fun sometimes.  :D

Herds are the name for guilds in this game to fit the equestrian theme; they're the same thing aside from the name. As of right now, herds are used to gather a bunch of ponies together so that we can get an idea of who'll be in the herd come launch and to just talk about general things from interests to the game itself. I'm sure that when the game is released there'll be more benefits for being in a herd such as buffs.

Indeed, although not every game has concrete benefits for guilds; I think the main idea's usually to have a cohesive group of people to hang out and play the game with.

Of course! The only reason I added that last part is because I've been seeing more and more MMORPGs adding guild benefits on to their guild systems. I wouldn't mind if LoE had guild benefits or not, I just felt the need to add that.

I don't think the former has been decided yet, since we won't really have any activities for quite awhile yet. As for the latter, I'm pretty sure we'll have something like that in-game.

I wouldn't suspect that this herd requires consistent activity, or ever will. I know there are some members of this herd who don't post in this thread at all, and possibly some who aren't even around anymore.  :o
Just speculating on the last part, don't really know for sure.

Also, the closest thing that we've discussed regarding a private chat box, is a possible Skype group, but nothing has come of that yet. In game, we most likely will have a private chat box.

Say, I sound a bit foolish, but how do I add... (oh god, I'm dumb... :c) a picture to my signature. Preferably a customized version of the "Watcher" banner for TB... Yes, I am stupid. Don't you say I'm not! >:O

Of course you´re not stupid for not knowing.
You go into your profile setting, then go into forum profile, scroll down and you´ll see the signature option, then you have to have a link for your picture (photobucket, imgur) and insert the link there, you have to put [img]before the link, and /img in brackets after it.

OC Name: [army name/service tag] Silent Strife, BB-788/[regular name] Moonshadow (I go by either one of them, preferably BB-788.)
Forum Name: BB-788
Activity: Not much. I check the forum from time to time.
Planned race: Pegasus
Reason to join: When LoE comes out, I'll need a job. In TB, I'd like to be a guardian of travelers. Anyone I pass in need of help can count on me to protect them with my life. A guard can be replaced, but a traveler's life cannot. The outside world can be hazardous, as I to the lives all who threatens a traveler's. I would really like this job. My insistence towards violence being the way comes from my time in the Vaktov-erm... It's a long story... Just call me BB-788.


Greetings and welcome to this herd! ^-^

I noted that your signature seems to refer to the members of this herd as a 'Traveller's Blesser', and I have to tell, while there is no read word for it yet, but if anything I think it should be something more like 'A member of the Travellers Blessing' although that's rather long I admit.
Also, I see why you thought that Blesser was the right word, as the herd's name end with Blessing, but that's just the word for a group of unicorns, not that it means that it's all unicorns, but the name is a reference to the history of this herd.

That's also something rather important that we have yet to settle I think.

Just a mere opinion, Maybe we shall call ourselves "Angels". After all, we ARE the blessing of Travelers, right?

Well, I daresay that's a bit too fancy, as to say we think ourselves as something elevated from common ponies, or that we fancy pegasi, which is certainly not the goal of this herd.
Pardon if I sound rough here, but I think if any single word is needed for this herd then it should be something rather humble.

And, as I said, the name is more a 'reference' of this herd being founded long time ago by a group of unicorns, and also to symbolise that we are to help all travellers of Equestria in need, no matter their allegiance.
So, yes, we are in a way a blessing to travellers, but I'd prefer that we do not try to force that out to all around us, as this herd is also a place where Travellers can have a chat, and have companionship.

As Ezio said, there is still a lot that needs to be done before this game will be ready for anyone to actually play.
For those who haven't seen this, here's the checklist before the game even hits alpha, nevermind beta.

They've confirmed it in a topic that it will be rated with Fantasy Violence, so I'm pretty sure we're going to see a plethora of magic spells and a whole bunch of shiny attacks for us Pegasi and Earth Ponies.

Yeah, that was an awesome game, although the main things I remember from it are a) tower defense and b) campaign hard mode being ridiculously hard. I mean, I beat every mission in SCII on Brutal with not much trouble (okay, more trouble on the last one) and thought that WC3 hard mode wouldn't be that much worse... very, very wrong.

Pretty much. The unfortunate thing is that we're but one of the three(?) herds that are active and have quite a lot of members. This forum needs more people  to create more herds or participate in the existing herds. :/

I don't think we will anytime soon - we're too big for that. Of course, there's no telling how many people we'll have once the game actually starts; things might have changed quite a bit by then. There will also probably be a lot more guilds around once the game actually starts  :P

you never know, Herds are sometimes one of those things that seem really easy to make on paper but difficult to actually create in practice.  I think all the dead herd threads are testament to that...

I think we're the kind of herd that's "Too big to fall". Besides, once the game comes out, folks from various poni communities are going to flock into LoE, meaning that this herd can only grow.

Also, to clear up on something, the Haylanders did not fall, they are merely just waiting till the game is more complete to accept more members.
And, as long I'm on these forums, and not too many ponies in the herd misbehave, then this herd will not Fall.

Aye, quite true, the trouble is to get the concept up and out to others, while also being interesting enough for ponies to be willing to join.
This herd's forte is that it's the largest herd here, so ponies will be more likely to want to join here than the smaller herds, unfortunately for the smaller ones I must admit.

I don't think I'd want to cheer for China - based on what I've heard, they're ridiculously harsh towards anyone who doesn't get a gold medal. Apparently one Chinese athlete had had the windows of his house smashed by angry people because he got a bronze or a silver. Creepy as hell.

Welcome back!

I trust you had a glorious time at the Gala. ^-^

Well, I had a grand time!
Got several things, even played a wee bit of LoE.


Bring on the costume pics!  :D


Umm, 'bout that... I forgot the camera in my luggage while I was in the con. X3
But at least some 20 pictures were taken of me I admit, I was one of the too few cosplayers there, a Trixie I were. :/

Wow, I wish I was there :). No conventions in Canada though :/. Not where I live at least.

It was rather curious I admit, but not cheap at all, not cheap... :I
Let me see, it cost me abouts $500 in all, and most of that was the flight to the place and other transport, actually, that was just a very rough number to give the idea that it was not cheap to go there. >:/

But I have no idea of how Canada have it's conventions, if any at all, that I do admit.

To tell truth.
Yes, as I deem the price to be a minor cost for such an event, though my wallet thinks otherwise, it was well worth it, if only to learn a tiny bit about how much those in Stuttgart loves their Mini Coopers, really there was too many of those small cars, too many to be real at least one per street... ^-^

Well, the plushies were sold out in less than an hour of the con's start, and they were expencive. :I
But I myself got two blind-bag-ponies, two posters, one of Octavia and another of Trixie, I also got some pony tarot cards, and that's about it.
Also, some person gave me a drawing of Trixie and Fluttershy hugging because my cosplay reminded him of it, I think that was it, but least it's the first time one have given me anything just like that, and of this I must say I'm touched. :'(

But those were maybe the worst parts, I found out about a Brony Community of Denmark there, and will check that out this day.

Jaywalkers, those are the silly ones that just walk over the road where they like are they not?

Do they not know that there are giant metal boxes that weight more than 1 tonne that are running past at high speeds?
Also, I'm the odd kind that would not want a licence for driving, as I do not like most of them, and they are too expensive for my liking. But that's merely me being barking odd.

It's nothing bad. You just have to take it easy at first. Then move up to larger streets, and integrate yourself into the flow of traffic. And go on scenic drives to nowhere in particular.

I still don't care for freeways myself. Just so much traffic. Stop and slow. Speed up and keep up, but not too close. Cut in front and cut off. It's grating on the nerves.

Mmm. I totally know what you mean. But Dreamworks plans to make the movie into a trilogy, and it will all head towards the same ending as the books, apparently. Because, you know, the book series is going to be something like twelve books long once it's finished.

And the TV series is meant to bridge the gap between the movies (which apparently will have a time skip of something like five years). Which means two seasons (of twenty episodes each), then the second movie, then two more seasons (what an odd episode count), then the final movie.

Which probably isn't good.

Because they know that young children will pester their parents into seeing it, and 99% of any media industry is more concerned with profit than quality. Why should they care if it's a well made movie? As long as it brings a profit, they might as well show 2 hours of a baby defecating itself.  :l

Thing is if you don't grind to get high-end stuff you won't be regarded as a good player of your class. So, many players are obliged to do those massive grinds to be able to participate in the hardest of raids and get the even higher-end stuff (which is another grind basically). Though you are true at one point; in LOTRO I've grinded so much and now I'm fed up with playing the game at all (only go there occasionally to chat with my kinship/guild). Just waiting for the next expansion to release.

Look what I found :D
Spoiler: show
The service can be downloaded and played for free, following an account registration procedure. However, a new player receives only a damaged orange jumpsuit, a pair of grey shoes and a tool for gathering vibrant sweat from creatures. As such, although one is able to participate for free, more involved gameplay is difficult without depositing funds. Players with little or no money are initially limited to the following actions:

    Using the service as a 3-D virtual chat room or exploring the virtual universe.
    Using an in-game process called "Sweating" or "Sweat Gathering" to extract bottles of "Vibrant Sweat," which can then be sold to other players for PED or changed to items.
    Collecting "fruit", "dung", and 6 sorts of precious rare stones which can be sold to other players to raise funds.
    Performing numerous "jobs" for other players - for example, acting as a trader, or buying predefined amount of crafting materials at specified rate for crafters.
    Performing several missions (quests) that can be completed without any in-game equipment or money.
    Trickery: cheating, and stealing.
    Finding abandoned items or PED lying on the ground.
    Begging, which is largely frowned upon.
    Take part in newbies missions in order to receive free tools and ammunition.

Players may purchase items needed to kill Entropia's tougher creatures--which are often likely to yield a higher number of valuable items than their weaker kin--or they can participate in the "Mining" and "Crafting / Manufacturing" professions, which can produce salable items to fund further gameplay. However, an element of risk is involved in all of these activities, and the expected payback is usually less than the funds required to initially partake in them.

Many players attempt trading as a fun and seemingly attractive method for acquiring PEDs, but has typically low margins. One exception to this is trading so-called "uber" items, which are rare and efficient versions of normal devices. Such items can retail in-game for the equivalent of thousands of US dollars. The Entropia Universe entered the Guinness World Records Book in both 2004 and 2008 for the most expensive virtual world objects ever sold, and in 2009, a virtual space station, a popular destination, sold for $330,000. This was then eclipsed in November 2010 when Jon Jacobs sold a virtual resort on Planet Calypso for $635,000; this property was sold in chunks, with the largest sold for $335,000.

What do you plan to do with your year off? Go to Sweden?
Title: Re: [Herd] Travellers Blessing.
Post by: Julius on 2012 Sep 05, 23:13:02
No... Though travel is involved.

My plans are to go to Aruba, the U.S. and possibly Europe. There's many reasons for me to take a year off. You see, the main one is that I don't know what to study in college yet. It's all pointing towards music, but I'm not too sure about that, even if I love it so much.

I want to find out what I want to do. I'm also going to be moving to the States next year, so I want to... Get used to the place, to the people. There's only so much you can learn on a computer, even if you interact with others, it's not the same. I want to see for myself how it's like before I move there.

I want to change some bad habits before moving away from Venezuela too (Now now, don't go thinking bad things about me. I mean stuff like not being so lazy and exercising more, you silly ponies :l ). Perhaps mastering my english would be a reason... Though I'm so good at it already. Really, my accent is almost completely gone, my grammar is great (If I do say so myself), I THINK in english...

Anyways, those are the main reasons. I really need to find out what to do. There's no way in hay I'm studying something that won't make me happy, so I need to make sure... I guess in a way, you could say I haven't found my Cutie Mark yet. Silly isn't it?
Title: Re: [Herd] Travellers Blessing.
Post by: The Wandering Magus on 2012 Sep 05, 23:20:32
Any subjects in particular you like more than others?  If you like studying languages you can try translation.
Title: Re: [Herd] Travellers Blessing.
Post by: Julius on 2012 Sep 05, 23:49:43
As a matter of fact, I HAVE translated before. Recently even, when a cousin from North Carolina visited. Since she doesn't speak Spanish... It's hilarious at times, but man, all that talking makes my head hurt, not to mention my mouth.  X3

Languages... I'd like to learn French and Italian, but that's about it for me. Even if learning other languages is easy for me i just don't like that.

And subjects I like? Well that's kinda tough for me. For example, I love videogames. I know my way around a computer, and if there's something I don't know, I can find out in no time. You could say i'm "Tech savvy". Then, would I not like to study programming or something related to computers? The answer is: NOPE. It bores me to death. I enjoy the end product, not what comes before that.

Oh! Here's something that deeply interests me: Mythology, Magic, Fantasy. To be honest with ya, I believe in it. I believe in magic, no matter what others may say. Hay, I even believe that somehow, Equestria is real for Muffin's sake.  :l

But if I was to study Mythology, where could I apply that knowledge? How would I make money with it? I hate the idea of being a teacher, and I can't think of any other way to use that knowledge.  :/

Ahh... Music, I Love it so so much. Feels great to create it, listen to it. It's amazing. I think the one thing I love most is music, and I'm barely starting to venture into it's creation. How awesome would it be to finish playing an epic videogame like, Final Fantasy or Mass Effect, and seeing your name on those credits, saying that you were part of the team who made the music for it. The music that made you feel Happy, Sad, Scared, Confident, Overwhelmed, Nervous, Amazed... The music that made that game such an amazing experience.

Sadly... Music's not a field where everyone wins. I want to study something that will make me happy, but I got to make sure that it will provide me with money too. Sadly, this is not a fantasy world, as much as I'd want it to be. Sadly, I don't have wings to lazily glide around through the sky with some pegasi, Sadly, I can't go around defeating monsters and saving the world with magic. I wish I could fly... I wish I could cast magic... I wish I could go to Equestria too... But...

This world isn't like that, it's all about the money here, so you got to think about that too.

So... I don't know. That's why I'm taking the time off to figure it out. I really have to think it through.  :c

You know Julius, writing could be your niche. It took a long time to find mine as well, but it's that creativity, that open mind, that makes great writers (do I hear Tolkien or C.S. Lewis around here?). Another interesting thing, Tolkien was just as sane as I am (which isn't reassuring now that I think about it...  lol), yet he literally believed in magic, and worlds beyond this one. I don't care how corny that sounds either. Magic is proven to be a real thing, and the scientists that can't explain it merely call the believer's in it crackpots and nutjobs.  :l

Just explore your possibilities, and see what the world has to offer. You may be surprised where you end up; I certainly wasn't, and I'm not even halfway through yet.  :)

Yes. That is definitely a good reason to take some time off, and sort yourself and your ambitions out.

As for me and music and money and education, I love the maths and sciences, especially chemistry, and I love designing things (like games and gizmos and musical instruments). And so I'm studying towards a Chemical Engineering degree with music on the side.

Yeah. My high school had a senior project, and I did mine on musical acoustics, and designed a clarinet with two potential keyworks. One with a chromatic layout (almost finished making this one), and one suited for one-handed play (the keywork is too complex for me to actually be able to make, right now). I've also worked on an air-read / valve-work (hopefully for better pressure management) version of the sheng with greater range and chromatic capabilities, but that one's all conceptual right now.

And there are a couple other projects I'm considering, but haven't really worked on.
