Another Month of Remembrance

Postby Alison » Thu Sep 21, 2017 1:12 am

Alison gently smiles at herself when she leaves Tar valon square behind her and the last words of Mierin Sedai reverberating in her mind. She smiles as few novices walk past her on their way to classes.

With a deep deliberate hands she grabs the gold and silver ribbons from her backpack as she heads into the classroom.

With deliberate care she wraps the golden ribbons around her upper wrists as well as her boots.

"What are you doing, Alison?" asks the accepted standing next to her.

"It is the month of rembembrance. When i attempt to let others remember those Aes sedai or Gaidin or friends that has gone before, to be remembered. To bring their thoughts, adventures into the present. We will never forget those that have set the foundations for the future.""

She stands and examines the intricate patterns. Each and every ribbon represents friends and family that she has met and interacted with.

OOC - post your memories here. Lets remember those that has contributed to the White tower, to the world and even just brought a smile to our face

My list of those that has impacted my life here on wotmud. Its not chronological, so bear with me.

Razhak. For my very first death was by him in 4kings. Many many years ago.
Shamara Sedai , for steering the current version of myself in the right direction. Thanks for that.
Elyse sedai, Hope and Etain sedai for keeping hope in my heart when i felt like running away.

Khahliana sedai that taught me the basics of understanding that you need to be independant and strong
willed.

I think this ones name i will elave out , but definately teaching me about dlining and how to counter
peoples game mechanics.

To Frey and Dartes. Two of my longest running friends in this game that i have never personally met, yet
feel a kinship with throughout all the years.

Remembering Lyren sedai's most important lesson , if you want to pk and good at it. Go pk. The lesson finally sank in
Lyren sedai.

The current Aes sedai that I interact with and pk with , Carlia sedai, Mierin sedai , Firimei sedai. You all inspire me
to want to be aes sedai. Thank you.

(List is longer, but basically those are the hearts and minds i feel should be mention)

Lovely idea, most of mine are old and gone.

Jason - still here! We have known each other a very long time. He's a continuum of wonderful things - he is funny, devoted, generous and kind, to name a few of his qualities I admire. He has remained one of my longest continual friends here on WotMUD.

Iliana, Aphrodite and Nest - A Blue (former Green), Brown and White I truly admired. Iliana for her general wonderfulness as a human. As a character here, I think she was one of the most well-rounded. Aphrodite for her dedication to role play. Nest for her embodiment of the Whites, and truly her own brand of person.

The Grays - Rebeka, Riasa and of course, Mikaela. Mikaela I looked up to immensely when I started here and joined the Gray Ajah. She has inspired me to be thoughtful and helped my very young self attempt to play the role of a much wiser individual. I think with some success, despite what others may have thought or still think!

Alayla - Reminds me the most of some of the individuals I spent my early years of mudding with, and some of the characters I have named above. These individuals that made me so excited to become a part of the White Tower. Having had the opportunity to see her transition from an Accepted to Sedai, she has proven herself time and time again to be one of the best we have had and ever will.

Vayus - Was my newbie helper. I met him when I Was like sub level 10. He is perhaps most famous for dying all the time in PK.

Sisters that have grown with me and been a reliable presence - Lara, Rhianna, Wynoa, Melyssan, Jul, Joinde, Yinia and many more.

My other men and women that have always made me laugh - Zeduis, Keruk, Flarn, to name a few.

Elysia - I have been so impressed: You have an incredible ability to approach a problem thoughtfully and work around, over, under and when need be, through them. You have a hard job and thankless job. So thank you for doing it so well.

As Alison has suggested, no list can be all encompassing. But this is a start to mine.

I have been touched by so many over the years. Some who have been my friends, others who I have strived to learn from and emulate.

Nate, Keruk, Tarinen, and Darqal all became people who have meant so much to me in much deeper ways than just the game. These people have become or were true friends beyond Wotmud. Their friendship has meant everything to me.

The old Wisdoms, so many whose names I have forgotten over time but who remain such dear memories to me. They taught me how to roleplay and how strong a community this world could be.

There are those who have taught me, motivated me to strive and fight harder. Some I know, some are just passing acquaintances, but all have my respect and appreciation for the things they have taught me, both directly and indirectly. So many old Sald Cav, Paj, Braxas, Elrad...plus those I've already mentioned, Nate, Tarinen, Darqal. Those who just motivate me to work harder and be better such as Tuk and Ludn. The one who ALWAYS has a positive attitude even though he gets sacrificed in every pk: Mronz. All these people have contributed to who I am as a pker, either directly through teaching or indirectly. Some just motivate me to be better and fight harder. All are people I respect.

The ones who have put so much time and effort into this game, Elysia, Itesh, Tamarlyn, Cynthiel, Elodin. I've been lucky to have such great watchers over the years. I love all the imms and appreciate them so much but these have personally impacted my life in this world and I appreciate what they've shared with me.

There are so many others, friendships old and new. This community is amazing, even when we're bitter and jaded haha. I'm so glad to have been a part of this for the last 13 years.

I have been touched by many players as well. Sometimes I liked it. Sometimes I was weirded out. I have always recovered.

I'll bite. A lot of the Lancers that first taught me to pk, including: Nash, Lancelaut, Koagan, Gulwinid, and Maple. Also Oak, such a fun guy to exp, smob, or just shoot the shit with. Same with Terinor! Also Atienne and Santino, who helped me break my teeth on same-side pk and made me come to love the Compies before they went entirely inactive for a while. Also, Amielia and Archaela, two old Accepteds that were some of my first friends in the game and I always hope will turn back up sometime.

While scanning some old manuscripts I stumbled across one that should never have gotten so dusty. This seemed like a good opportunity to acknowledge those that were with me. I remember each and every one of you still today for your participation in this amazing Tower Quest that Elysia put together. My apologies if I've left names out, an official post was done ages ago that listed everyone's name, rank, affiliation, etc. It was lost when the old boards went down and I cannot find a copy of that. These highlights will have to do:

It was a journey that started in Tar Valon:

* R HP:Healthy SP:Bursting MV:Fresh > The Warders Practice Yard
The ground here has been cleared of all vegetation and the earth has been
compacted to provide good footing for the warders and their students to
practice on. The tall trees surrounding the clearing provide shade for the
men practicing. Racks are scattered across the clearing and along the
walls. The teachers often watch their students duel each other with wooden
practice swords.

A sign hangs on the wall.

This chamber seems to serve as both a meeting area, and as a mess hall.
It is in perfect order, and well maintained. The walls are bare, as are the

glass-sconced candles set high into the walls.

(Also this: Carly says 'the spam!')

Then to Stedding Shangtai, which was my home for many months!

Covril says 'Jase Sedai went to the place that was once eastern Jaramide and that later was western Elsalam.'

You arch an eyebrow.

[emote smiles brightly, clearly delighted.]

Iliana narrates 'Have fun Browns: Cvril says 'Jase Sedai went to the place that was once eastern Jaramide and that later was western Elsalam.''

Gesin narrates 'YAYAYA!'

Naji narrates 'hrmm, one moment.'

Gesin narrates '*gets out her books*'

Shante narrates 'alayla should know this!'

You narrate 'Western Kandor'

(Also this: A pirate chats 'Arrrr, Laci keep ye hands off me jewels!')

In Chachin:

In the Cosy Cottage
The centerpiece of the front room of this cottage is a large round table
covered by a white and yellow checkered table cloth. A variety of potted
plants have been placed in the windowsills of the cottage and a vase with
flowers stands on the table, adding to its homely feel. Two large and
comfortable chairs face the plain stone hearth.
[ obvious exits: S ]
A chair made of red oak rests next to the table. [2]
A large round table built from black oak dominates the center of the room.

A warhorse has arrived from the south.

You say 'I'm looking for a woman by the name of Jase Flavian? She is Aes Sedai. Perhaps you have seen here'

Jase sent us in search of Chianna.

(Also: Someone bellows 'It's awfully quiet, have you all died?')
(And then not too long after: Gesin narrates 'Wow, that is an Aes Sedai killing room.')

Back in Chachin we find what we hoped for, but not without a price:

You bellow 'no!'

You bellow 'A member of the Yellow please come!

And upon returning to Tar Valon the Tower mourns one of its own, but we're joyful with our successful completion of the quest:
