Despite Evie's very clear instructions I have not managed to work out how to post a picture but the following link might be of interest http://www.st-melangell.org.uk/English/Church/stmelangellchurch.htm. Melangell is a real Saint, though from Powys not Cassan, and her Church still exists in a remote Welsh valley. Her shrine has been rebuilt within the last 30 years and it is a place of pilgimage and healing. Her name is pronounced Melangeth (with the th something like the ch at the end of loch).

Beautiful place. Thank you, Revanne. I didn't realize St. Melangell was a woman and it stands in perfection that she is for the protection of hares and for healing. Another wonderful place to add to my list of places to visit in the British Islands. I will have to stay for a whole summer.

Horses? thought Aliset. What about the injured MAN lying there!  MEN!!!  Heavens above, she would never understand the lot of them!  This was why God created women--not as an afterthought, but because He'd realized the world needed more sensible creatures than this flighty lot to serve as stewards of His creation!

I was rereading the last few additions and this quote once again gave me a good giggle. Evie, your words fit perfectly with the ideals of St. Melangell. ;D

Mod hat on

Chances are fair to good that this has been simple mistakes, but can we please be a bit more careful about where we post off-topic discussions that are related to the game?   The game thread should be mostly game posts; the off-topic-but-game-adjacent posts go here, in the Out Of Character thread.

Thanks!

Mod hat off

Have fun!

Thanks for the reminder, I will look more closely next time.

Thanks DR😊. Just get carried away sometimes
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

I actually purposely posted the link and the pics in the game thread, because anyone reading this at a later time would never have know to reference the info from St. Mellagell in the OOC thread. I thought the info there was relevant to learning more about our good priest, Father Columcil. So that is why I did it.

That makes sense, but generally speaking, the game thread is for game posts; everything else goes here.  :D

Bynw this is your shout but would it be possible to have a new thread for characters? I canít always keep a track of who is who and having to trawl back through lots of pages is not always feasible.

Also it occurs to me that if we get to Rhemuth then there are a few character decisions to be made. Did Albin become Duke of Carthmoor? Who is King's champion?  What is the Title of the Gwyneddian Crown Prince and how is Javan coping with being in his father's shadow for so long? Who  is Liam's heir and does he share his fatherís desire for close ties to Gwynedd or does he feel his father has betrayed his heritage?

Just a few thoughts for starters :)

Here's the characters thread.  http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/index.php/topic,2121.0.html

It's closed to replies because there aren't any openings right now for new characters, but you can still view the thread.

Hope that helps! :D

I think Kelric would have become King's Champion when his father was no longer able to do it for whatever reason. I'm   trying to work on a story  about Eirian and Liam  and the evolution  of ties between Gwynedd  and Torenth. I'M new at this so it's going Very slowly. Not as talented as the rest  of you but trying

I suspect revanne meant one for keeping up with NPCs though. I have trouble keeping up with who Rayne/Phyre/Feyd are myself and what each is doing, who is still in play and who is out of action,  etc., so I think an NPC thread is a good idea. It can be separate from the main characters thread, since that has been closed already.

Rayne was originally supposed to be Phyre, but I couldn't find the correct name at the time.  It probably turned out better that I didn't, and we ended up with one more bad guy.   ;D

What happened to the side bar that used to list new posts. I don'T see  it anymore and it did make it quicker to get to the posts. I am currently  having to go to the home page  then the game page then the thread and then the page . Lot more clicks. I do use a tablet but it's the same one I always use, Of course my kids always say it is operator error

Speaking for myself it's not so much talent as confidence and practice. I hadn't written anything creative since school days a loooong time ago and  I felt sick when I posted my first story ( which I've yet to finish because I had vastly underestimated the time it takes me to write anything) but everyone was so encouraging which is the joy of this forum. Looking forward to when you feel ready to post something.

Kelric would be the obvious choice for King's Champion but I'm wondering about Brendon.I don't remember anything being said in canon about it being a hereditary post and it would be a way of Kelson affirming his trust in Brendon.

Oh, okay, sorry.  I misunderstood.  A number of the NPCs are Bynw's creations, so creating an NPC Character List is probably best left to him, but last I knew, he was feeling pretty ratty, so I don't know how quickly that might happen.  I'll ask, though.
