  1. I've been waiting for this. I actually, truly believe this could solve the issue of "late" translations. We fans are afterall invested in the game. Giving us a chance to actively help solve the communication issue - can't really go wrong here Thanks for this! *scurries of to write email*
  2. (Oh, yeah, and there was this as well....addendum to the Kronos centered idea. It's a bit like "CF lore reimagined - from the point of view of a fanatic Kronos follower". Derp.) ------------------- “When you join our ranks, we will not ask you 'Can you read? Can you add numbers and write a hundred words in mere minutes?' - we will only ask you 'Are you willing to learn? Are you willing to see and to listen, and will you remember?'. For no matter where your story began and your journey started, this is the first step that you must take with us: to learn the traits and knowledge of our work, not only to wield a sword and draw a bow, to forge a dagger and carve a staff – but also to notice the moments when history unfolds, to preserve them through written word and retelling and songs of the bards. But above all, we will tell you about the past, that which began and ended, that which echos can be heard even now, and that which has not yet shown it's true effects. For those who know the past, may know the future, and grow ever nearer to His side.” - Mentor Izahja Lea'nin, Head of the historical Faculty The Creation Different Races may speak of different beginnings, for each have opened their eyes at a different time – but all of us know of The Creation, as the gods tell the story of how our universe was made. Thus is the story of Valkyn, the Allfather, and The Beginning of all life, as written in the chronic of the gods. Before Time began it's journey and Kronos stepped into this realm, Valkyn was the first of the gods who encountered the great Wyrm Etemal. Some sources say Valkyn ambushed the beast without mercy, or maybe there had been a great battle fought valiantly. No one remembers why those two great beings fought, but we know of the outcome – for this is the moment our Universe began. Valkyn won over the beast, and he ripped it in two – forming Yaemir and Lyssa, King & Queen of Wyrms. This first act of murder was, at the same time, the very first act of creation – and many argue that by thus linking those two inseparable, Valkyn doomed this universe on it's very first breath. Or, maybe, it was a curse laid upon him and his kin by Etemal in his dying moment. Fact is, and here all historians agree, that almost all acts of creation from that day on were overshadowed by darker events or laid upon the creator a dreadful price to pay. Nevertheless, ignorant or simply uncaring, Valkyn proceeded to form the two beasts as he willed. And they say he formed them to be the base and backbone of our universe, as he twisted Lyssa to encompass and guide, her breath the eastern wind and the light on her scales the stars to which we look at night. And we know that at this moment He stepped into this realm, Kronos, god of time and brother to Valkyn. And he saw what had been done, and he advised his brother – for Valkyn had created the five heavens and room beneath for hundreds of worlds to spring into existence, but how could he be there and start every single creation, be the point of every beginning for time eternal? And so they consulted, and Yaga, their sister, stepped up to them and counseled them – for every beginning needs an end, and every end will be a new beginning. And Valkyn took Lyssas Unborn and hung it in the sky to be the Moon, and he took Yaemir's fire and hung it in the sky to be the Sun, and then he divided both to form Night and Day, and thus the endlessly flowing river of time was formed – and on clear and cold days, you can see it's waves mirrored in all colors on Lyssas scales, high in the sky. This is the legend, as the gods tell it, of how our universe was created and time began to flow between and around and in everyone and everything. ------------------- PS: The totally meaningless name of that Head of Faculty was totally Kraahks fault. I'm innocent. Really.
  3. So, after rummaging through some old stuff on my PC last night, I found a folder of stuff I wrote for the CF guild I was part of. Back then, they were searching for a concept. A lore upon which a guild structure & possible guild RP could be build. So I wrote a few possible ideas, focused on the gods. Of course - I mean, there's not much else you can focus on in Crowfall Lore. Now, seeing as that guild didn't make it, and wont get back to being a Crowfall Guild either, I was thinking....what a shame. That stuff shouldn't just catch dust here, no? So, here you go. If anyone wants to use it, for their guild, or their RP concept, or a story or really whatever - you are very welcome. I'd love to see it living on in some form PS: I know that there's some new info with that lore centered Livestream. I have not updated these concepts since then. So don't come to me throwing owls if something doesn't fit anymore Guardians of Time, Keepers of Memory “The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” - Leo Tolstoy When given an eternal life, one tends to disregard the passing of time. The coming & going of seasons becomes the never ending circle of life itself, one battle follows another in this great war of the gods. But there are signs, markers, and if you can read them, understand the meaning, then the ever repeating murmur of flowing time will be like a language to you, the voice of our god whispering secrets into your ear. We follow his calling, we witness and record, we stand beside the river that is time – for one day he will speak to us plainly, and we will know the secrets of the broken moon and the steps we must take towards a brighter future. For we are [...] – blessed with immortality, to stand guard eternal until time itself ceases to exist – until we ourselves can see time clearly. This idea focuses heavily on the God of Time, all seeing Kronos. Following the idea that he knows past, present & future and witnessed Geas death, it is highly likely that he also knows the outcome of the war against the other gods and, above all, against the hunger. Combining this with the idea that by studying the past we learn more about what might happen in the future, this concept opens up ways for a religious, scientific & historical/bardic approach – or a mix of all three. Travelers, searching for Home “Not all those who wander are lost.” - J.R.R. Tolkien In a time were gods walk between us, worlds shatter and countless lives are lost each moment, isn't it only reasonable to search for peace, for that place and feeling we call home? For the gods created us, but not in their likeness – we are only pawns in their game of war, doomed to forever fight in battles not of our making. Tell me, why should we labor for beings that never reached us a helping hand, work for a cause determined by someone else? They cursed us with immortality, then gifted us with worlds to call our own like you would throw a bone to your dog. But we are not mindless beasts to do their bidding for eternity. We are proud warriors, architects, artisans & bards, and we follow a dream to one day be free. Until then, let us build a refuge, a place that is truly ours, a place to return to that is home and hearth and peace of mind. For we are [...], not by grace of gods or decree of man, but by choice – and we shall follow our own creed and create our own myths. This idea can either be about rebellion & the search for a true purpose, following Halup as the first Crow or renouncing ties to all gods; or depict indifference, following Illaras example. Depending on the choice of gods, details & thoughts may change, but both concepts focus on the idea of crows building their own community, being independent & a force upon themselves. This opens up ways for a social, EK centered approach while at the same time offering explanations for heavy PvP under every flag – while fighting only for our own. Priests of the holy Trinity “Dance like the Maiden, Laugh like the Mother, Think like the Crone. “- Wiccan Wisdom All worlds must die, all life will end, but were one story finishes, another will begin – for all endings are beginnings, and all beginnings lead to an end. But the hunger halts life before it's time, destroys worlds before the seed for a new on can be laid. So we look to the guidance of the three goddesses that are one, the three faces of life – and we believe that there are still three of them, for the concept of life itself can't be killed, and we can find it in every world, clinging to existence. This is our calling, our creed, to build and nurture, to save and protect, to grant the gift of passing where death is the kinder end. For we have been given the gift of eternal life, and a holy purpose to defend all those who look up to the three goddesses. We are [...], we are the eyes and ears of the three faced goddess, and we are their hands to help up the fallen & keep away evil. This idea focuses on the three goddesses Cybelle – Gea – Yaga, embodiments of the three faced goddess found in many cultures and religions. Believing in all three of them as the combined circle of life enables us to fight in every faction, as each of the three stands for one aspect of life & swore allegiance to one faction. The core idea would be life, in itself, as something to be protected and revered, while at the same time accepting that death & destruction are on part of it. This concept relies on a heavily religious approach, combined with PvP and/ or EK building, this can be measured differently or even change over time. Followers of the All Father “War is what happens when language fails.”- Margaret Artwood When the hunger came, he who we call the All Father, the first God, raised up from the Dragon Throne that is his heirloom and his alone, to battle the Hunger that threatened to destroy all he had created. And he vanished into the heart of the universe, but the Hunger kept growing, and no mortal, god nor immortal crow has ever heard from him since. But he was the first God, the mightiest of them, and still the Dragon Throne stands and the great Wyrms keep our universe centered – so he must still be out there, battling the Hunger whilst his siblings, his children and their creations fight each other in mindless battle to decide who might inherit the Dragon Throne. But he is not gone, for he cannot cease to exist, and the Dragon Throne is only his to sit upon. In his absence the gods should seek consent between themselves and work together to protect his creation – instead they turned to petty squabble like children when the father turns a blind eye. So it falls upon us to counsel wisdom and cohesion, to form alliances and defend the Dragon Throne in the All Fathers absence. For we are his last loyal subjects, the guards tasked with the holy duty to defend what he brought into being and to unite all of creation to await his return. We are [...], the first and the last of the holy Crows under his command. This idea centers around Valkyn, the All Father, Oldest of the Gods and the one who created the whole universe. In his absence the great war started, instead of alliance the gods worked against each other. It is unlikely that this outcome would please the Creator, and one would suspect that seeking to protect his creation would be his highest goal – after all he vanished battling the hunger. We know that even before Valkyn vanished there had been crows, Halup is revered as the very first crow, fighting in Valkyns army. It's not to far fetched to think that some other, very old crows might still hold to Valkyn instead of fighting for one of the other gods. This highly religious concept focuses on social aspects & diplomacy, while providing a good reason to fight – without restriction to one faction.
  4. Ich hab mal Nein gewählt - obwohl ich irgendwo da in der nicht-wirklich-eine-Gilde von Kraahk (auf einem Balkon) sitze. Aber ich bin eben nicht in einer aktiven, spielenden Gilde. Die letzte in der ich war hat ihren Gildenleiter irgendwo in der Schweiz verloren. Glaube ich. Nichts desto Trotz, und das ist der interessante Part! Gibt es das Discord dieser Gilde noch. Und es sind dort noch Leute aktiv. Und ab und an geht es in den kleinen Unterhaltungen sogar mal um Crowfall Ich bin da also ähnlich wie Kraahk der Meinung, das die Menschen das wichtige sind - nicht zwangsweise in einer Gilde, aber eben einfach zusammen. Ich glaube das nennt man dann Community, ja. Ich habs aus diesem Grunde aber auch nicht wirklich eilig, mir eine neue Crowfall Gilde zu suchen. Und außerdem kenne ich die deutschen Gilden eigentlich fast alle - und viel schlimmer - sie mich!
  5. Zuerstmal, ist es meiner Meinung nach normal zu Anfang motiviert zu sein, und diese Motivation dann langsam abzubauen - außer es wird aktiv gegengesteuert Tatsächlich erinnere ich mich immer gerne an die Tage zurück, wo das Crafting System noch ganz neue war, und niemand so richtig wusste, was da nun Bug und was Feature war. Wir haben Stunden damit verbracht, unglaublich umständliche Listen von möglichen Kombinationen anzulegen und darüber zu fachsimpeln, wie das alles funktioniert. Da hat man sich gefühlt wie ein Pionier Natürlich ist so eine Situation nicht aufrechterhaltbar. Es ist aber nicht das "Älterwerden" - sozusagen - das bei mir das Interesse etwas gemindert hat. Da fallen einige verschiedene Faktoren mit rein, unter anderem Community Angelegenheiten, aber für mich persönlich auch die Realisation das ich 1) wirklich kein PvPler bin 2) dieses Spiel - und ich finde das tatsächlich gut! - nicht gedacht ist alleine gespielt zu werden 3) ich keine akitve Spielergruppe hatte 4) aber aufgrund der nur graduellen Änderungen nie das Bedürfnis hatte, mir tatsächlich die Mühe zu machen Leute zu finden die mich mitnehmen würden. Als Crafter, sobald das akute Gefühl von "Oh, neu, aufregend, shiny, muss ausprobieren und verstehen!" abgeklungen war, sah ich tatsächlich nicht mehr den Sinn darin Dinge zu craften die nach zwei Tagen wieder weg sind weil entweder der Hunger sie geschluckt hat (ich bin immernoch ein Fan dieses Bug-Euphemismus ) oder es eben einfach einen Reset gab. Die damaligen Tests - und ich kann leider nicht einschätzen ob das jetzt mittlerweile anders ist - waren eher gemacht für die PvPler als die Crafter. Macht ja auch Sinn. Also, was würde mich wieder aufheben, motivieren, zurück an Deck holen? Ganz einfach. Wirklich. Kann direkt umgesetzt werden, von dir, ja DU @Kraahk ! Rate mal! Ich geb dir nen Tip. Es fängt mit 'L' an und hört mit 'ieder' auf. Und nein, ich rede weder von Lachmövengefieder noch von Lederhosenmieder (und ja, das gibts anscheinend wirklich). Ich mein. Du weißt verflixt nochmal ganz genau wovon ich rede!! 😤😜 Jetzt aber mal ernsthaft. Potentielle Gründe wieder aktiv im Spiel unterwegs zu sein: EKs funktionieren = ich kann Kraahk helfen seins aufzubauen. Ich hab da so luftige Ambitionen Alternativ: ich finde eine Gilde die mich motivieren kann & es schafft nicht nach meinem Beitritt zu schließen, inaktiv zu werden oder den Gildenleiter zu verlieren. Ich weiß. Hohe Ansprüche. Potentielle Gründe wieder aktiv im Forum unterwegs zu sein: well, I'm here, aren't I? are you happy now, ha?! shameless 😒
  6. Nachdem mir soeben ein kleines Vögelchen gezwitschert hat- wen will ich verarschen, es hat mir gekrächtzt und mir mitteilte das es hier ein "wer lebt noch und warum?" Klassentreffen gibt, sowie eine Wetterumfrage...dachte ich mir ich schau mal vorbei. Ich muss ganz ehrlich sagen das ich momentan nicht mehr viel mit Crowfall zu schaffen habe. Ich hab nach dem ein oder anderen Test irgendwie den Faden verloren - weil der mir nicht mehr so ganz rot ersichtlich war. Hinzu kommt natürlich das in der (deutschen und internationalen) Community irgendwie eine Flaute herrschte, da kann man sich auch von anderen keine Motivation ausborgen wenn man die eigene verloren hat. Was mich auch zum Thema bringt - was könnte man machen damit hier wieder mehr los ist? Ich als Hobby Schreiberin bin zum Beispiel von diesem angekündigten Wettbewerb sehr angetan. Da werd ich mich sicherlich beteiligen - zudem ich ja gesehen habe das es wohl mehr Infos über die Lore gibt. Spieltechnisch bin ich mir nicht sicher ob irgendetwas mich grade so richtig aufputschen würde. Ich finde es sehr angenehm das anscheinend wieder mehr Interesse daran besteht die Community direkt anzusprechen und einzubeziehen - das lässt darauf hoffen das wir als Spieler wieder das Gefühl haben, das unsere Stimmen Gehör finden PS: ich benutze auch kein Facebook
  7. Wie ich auch schon im Discord meinte....was genau suchst du denn? Solls ne rein deutssprachige Gilde sein? Soll sie aktiv sein? Aggressiv pvp betreiben oder sich eher auf Crafting & Handel fokussieren? Wenn du möchtest das wir dir bei der Suche helfen, musst du uns schon ein paar mehr Infos geben
  8. ....dunkel, duster. Mensch Kraahk, ich weiß ja das du kein photogenes Genie bist aber....
  9. Ta-Dah, habs gefunden. Karte gibt es hier - und anscheinend sollte es die Wilden Schweine in jedem Starter Gebiet geben.
  10. Die Schweine sollte es noch geben, mir wurde auch letztens ne Karte gezeigt die hier irgendwo im Forum rumfliegen soll...ich geh mal auf die Suche. Brb PS: auch von mir noch herzlich willkommen hier bei uns
  11. Ups, da bin ich wohl spät dran. Egal, als Ausrede zählt sicherlich, den gesamten Zeitraum vom 30.12.2017-02.01.2018 gearbeitet zu haben, oder? Nicht? Wünsch euch nen Frohes Neues, schön das doch noch so viele, und auch soviele Neue, hier anzutreffen sind
  12. That seems far more complicated then just opening one threat - that's what you normaly come to do in the forum anyway, right?
  13. I have it every time I log into the forum, actually. Try selecting a random post, it will then update & recognize that you are actually logged in. at least that's working for me
  14. Dann herzlich wollkommen hier Es gibt reichlich RPler, vorallem natürlich im englischen Bereich. Links zu den deutssprachigen Anknüpfstellen findest du im Post den Kraahk oben verlinkt hat
  15. Akineko

    Wer ist aktiv?

    Umgangssprachlich, nicht wirklich gut zu übersetzen - erst Recht nicht mit meinen nicht vorhandenen Französischkenntnissen. I guess you could go with shenanigans?

    Wer ist aktiv?

    Und da bin ich wieder mal an diesem Punkt wo ich nicht weiß ob ich lachen oder weinen soll ^^ Ich tendiere tatsächlicher eher so zum Lachen, wenn ich das mal so sagen darf. Schön gemacht Dravo *Applaus* Aber mal vom ganzen emotionalen Backlog abgesehen den hier keiner von den neuen Leuten kennen wird - Mensch Dravo, du solltest doch wissen das es nicht nur Schwarz und Weiß gibt. Falsch und Richtig? So funktioniert das also mit dem Abgrenzen von Anderen So, und nun zum erfreulichen Teil! Es sind immer noch Menschen aktiv, ja! In diversen Discord Channeln, Foren & Chaträumen versteckt finded sie, wer wirklich sucht. Falls du irgendwelche Fragen hast @MInga scheu dich nicht Sie zu stellen - es ist immer schön wiedermal neue motivierte Leute hier zu haben PS: lass dich nicht verunsichern von dem ganzen Gildengewurschtel hier - meistens sind die meisten von uns offen und unvoreingenommen ;p
  18. Nein, das war kein Subtext. Das war Krähengeflüster. Das was du manchmal hörst, wenn das Radio knarzt und der Wind zu laut durch die Bücherseiten raschelt. Oder, um es noch ein bisschen komplizierter zu machen und Dravos Kommentar mit zu integrieren: Wir sind noch da. Nur nicht mehr hier.
  19. Well, you said it yourself. "Currently". I can't imagine they'll leave it that way. And with the building system & all the clutter stuff they apparently plan, you'll be able to build at least a nice stage. And at least the chat should work before launch - and if you have a working chat, RP is possible. And for what it will look like....well we have lore to build upon. We can make our own settings, they've already been made. Free merchants City, A guild for storneborn. It's like any other game where you can RP - find an idea you like and get it out there.
  20. There are already EKs & guilds planning RP. But as Kraahk said - there will be, most probably, no seasons or quests or settings done by ACE. They have their hands full creating a game - a game full of possibilities. If you want a "server", and for future reference this should be an EK, that specialises in GoT RP, make it! Take your EK, find a bunch of people interested, and recreate King's Landing. It's possible. There doesn't need to be a dedicated RP server like you would find in other MMORPGs, because every EK could be an RP server. The problem is getting the people together. As always. Now, you could probably even RP a campaign. If every involved faction agrees to it. Maybe, in the future, if the RP community for this game is big & healthy & active, the Devs will even agree to dedicate some Campaigns to RP. But it's far to early for that ^^
  21. You busy bird Thanks! I couldn't read as fast as they were streaming
  22. Ups, das zeigt mir auch gleich mal das ich meine Posts ändern muss...... Kraahk, mein Liebliches Federvieh, nimm mal bitte DM komplett raus
  23. Hey und herzlich willkommen Wichtig wäre natürlich ob du eine rein deutssprachige Gilde suchst, oder ob es ruhig international sein kann - und ob die Gilde jetzt schon im Spiel aktiv sein soll. ^^
  24. I have the same issue, running 53.03 The only Addons I have are Addblock Plus & a Youtube Downloader. Plug ins: Widevine (Google); Schockwave & OpenH264-Videocodec (Cisco)
  25. ok. ja, hatte erst nach dem posten gesehen das du das ganze erst vorn paar Minuten gepostet hast.
