  1. Here's the link: It's still severely lacking, and I mostly worked on my characters on the character page, but since this is a wiki, you guys are free to edit in stuff however you want. We can use this thread for discussion regarding the thread too
  2. I've started venturing in the Alleyverse, and have read the four threads that make up the main plot. What other things should I (or any newcomer) read to be up-to date in what's going on in the Alleyverse?
  3. Hey Everyone! Just going to post a clear and simple guide to tell how to create threads, why to create threads, and which threads to join. Here we go: THREAD CREATION: Creating a thread goes like this. First, Decide what you want the alleyverse thread to be, the main three are: Guild, Location and Discussion: Guild: Character RP is allowed, but does not always happen. (See threads: TUBA, Canton of Combat, People you wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley) Location: This is specifically an RP thread. Set in one location. If someone posts in character in a location thread. They can't post with the same character in another location thread without first leaving the location, characters can't be in two places at once. (See threads: Waystop, Devaan's training ground, Tomb of the forgotten) Discussion: There is NO RP CHARACTER RP in these threads. (See threads: Alleyverse characters, Alleymemes) Now you know the main three thread types, here's how you make them: A GUILD thread is made by creating the thread, choosing the title (usually the name of the guild) and tagging the thread with the "guild" tag. You then type out the introduction post (usually a summary of the guild, and how to join) and letting others join the guild! Pretty simple! A LOCATION thread is a little more complex. First, create the thread, then title it what the place is called (EG: Elendel Basin) and tag it with these tags: First, tag it with "RP" Then, tag it with "Location" Then, tag it with whatever era the location is in. At the time of this post that would be "era 2" Then, tag it with it's plot relevancy. One of three: "Main plot", "Side Plot", or Character development "CD" Then make a post with your character (or an NPC that you have written for the location) and give a brief overview of the location. A DISCUSSION thread isn't that hard. all you have to do is title it, then tag it with "discussion" and "OOC" (Out of character). Then post an overview of the thread, and discuss! JOINING A THREAD: Joining a guild thread works by simply talking with people either in or out of character. Joining a location thread involves having your character exit the previous location thread, then arrive on the thread. Joining a discussion thread is just by discussing with people. On the thread. thats it. FINAL THOUGHTS: I would like anyone who has made existing threads to tag them with this criteria, it will help differentiate the threads. if anyone has any questions, comments or concerns, just post here and I'll respond ASAP.
  4. A simple but fun concept, what do you think your character's song or leitmotif would be? Or if you can't think of anything for now, you could also just describe the song and I could try to find one for you Characters and their themes (contact me if you want to be removed from the list or change the song):
  5. Planning thread for era 2 planning
  6. We have a wiki for the Alleyverse. Check it out, make an account, be sure to contribute. This is the link to the wiki. Voidus is creator and head admin. Shout out to him for all he does for the Alleyverse!
  7. So, there are often new members joining up. People can get confused, so I am here to help! If you want to join, you have two choices: 1. PM @Archer with a character 2. Post your character on our coming-soon character thread and we will help work out the bugs. Then, post in one of the RP Topics. The current ones are Devaan's Training Ground, Shattered Oaths, The Alleyway Bar, The Newcago Court, and Divided We Fall. If you want, you can also post in CDS (Character Development Scenes) to get started. Be sure to read up on the Rules of Warfare, and also request an invite to the PM. Once you're all set, you can start RPing! Or join a guild! Or both. If you have any questions or concerns, PM Mraize, Kidpen, Voidus, or Archer. Or me! And welcome!
  8. The Ghostbloods would like to announce that with recent break through with Chromium Feruchemy, we are able to accurately* allow you, yes you, to see your own future and where you need to be next**, via the Spiritual Realm! We ask you to place your hands on the Chromium ball and tap the Unkeyed storage. Possible side effects but are not limited to nausea, vomiting, insomnia, dizziness, stupor, memory loss, hearing voices, insanity, and not understanding why one needs to be in that particular place at said time. These side effect grow more severe and apparent the more one taps this ball. Customers served {4} *we can not guarantee when your future will happen, though it will likely occur between one and thirty days (foresight past seven days is quite rare), we can only say that it 75-95% possible to occur (This is because not all of Renarin's visions were correct.), one's actions can increase or decrease the likelyhood of one obtaining their future **similar to what Hoid does with Fortune ***only about 5% are afflicted with the physical and mental side effects , 80% are afflicted with the condition of not understanding why one needs to be in that particular place or time., and 15% are not affected in any shape or form.
  9. For all worldhoppers out there. Come and get some invested jewelry. First selection: Awakened Earring: First Personal Assistant. Name: Corin Abilities: An extra sense. While wearing this, it will provide any information known to it about the area you are in up to ten feet in any direction. It remembers questions and has a sense of humor. Metal: Aluminum (For more human personality) Tin (For its sense of your surroundings.) Cost: While active, it will feed on 25% of your all your senses until you take it off. Look: Just an aluminum tin stud with a bent back. Infinity Gauntlet: In honor of Avengers: Infinity War, this one is on special sale. Abilities: When fingers are snapped, half of all living things within a five-foot radius crumble to dust. Metal: Unknown Cost: Feeds on the wearer like Nightblood. Be ready to remove from package. Drawbacks: Besides the cost, invested objects are resistant to the Infinity Gauntlet's effects. Look: See Image. Note: The gems are normal. Copper: The memory maker. Can store memories and retrieve them for the wearer like any coppermind. Acts like a personal assistant and automatically restores clarity and organization. Look: Just a copper stud of the same design as Corin. Cost: Stores all of your memories as well. There are no secrets to the Professor. Name: Professor Metal: Copper Sold. Any takers? If there is a better place to post this for Alley Verse members, let me know.
  10. These are the Alleyverse elections. We are electing somebody to be our mayor of the Alleyvillage. They will be elected and everyone will have to do what they say, except Voidus, because he literally created the universe. If you create the universe, you kinda transcend this kinda stuff. Also, he's a mod, so he has that going for him. That's not to say he can't be elected, just that it would be redundant. So, the way it works is through a democommunicapitelectocollegsyste system, which is completely original. The way it works is that there are three parties, the pro hemalurgic party, the anti hemalurgic party, and the indifferent party. These are separate from guilds. To become a candidate, this is all you have to do: 1. Be nominated by someone else. 2. Accept that nomination. Name the party you plan to run for. Then I'll make a poll for it. This is definitely not a joke and should be take completely seriously. Nominations: Anti Hemalurgic: @Archer @AonEne Pro Hemalurgic: @ElephantEarwax Indifferent: @Gancho Libre @The Forgetful Archivist
  11. Would you guys in the RP be supportive of establishing a monetary system in the RP? If so, what do you think it should look like?
  12. This is the poll for the official Alleyvillage leader.
  13. 31. Silva* 32. Amalek* 33. Jackson son of nun* In this discussion, if you are willing to participate in it, requires one to explain why they chose the person above in the poll. Please explain why they are the most powerful. This will also help determine the order of the powerfulest** characters, I do not mean to hurt feelings and such but to satisfy curiosity. As such is said, I hope that you vote honestly and not for yourself. Votes are made public so that we can know if you did such a thing. Please note that I will be using 17th Sharder usernames rather than their character names for ease as well as people who are not as familiar with the characters. Some questions to answer or consider. Is it because they have the most Investiture? Are they the most dangerous? Are the the most secretive or have the most to hide? Do they have knowledge of events(Future, present or past) that they otherwise should not know? *If these numbers are your vote please comment them ** A word that I just made, literally right now. Because why write most powerful when you can be lazy.
  14. I know that several people have asked, and Voidus is working on getting it for us, but this is my way of getting them to do it. Put all of our support into a single thread so that they can see the need.
  15. In the beginning, there were the universes. Every possible one existed separate and apart form the others. Nothing connected them except for the primordial vacuum that they floated in. This vacuum is known as the Void. It is impossible for mortals to understand the Void in its true essence. To attempt a description, I will use the metaphor that I was told once. The Void is like the alleyway between buildings, but on a inter-cosmic scale. The universes are like different buildings in a city, and the Void is like the Alleyway in between the two buildings. There was a being who resided inside of the Void. His name is Voidus. similarly to the Void, it is impossible to understand his true form, but to try to understand him, I will use a quote from a very helpful member of the reptilian royalty. He stated that "A Voidus is pages upon pages of Epic profiles, It is a spike in the back in a dark alley. It is a slowpoke with a horriffic crab monster parasitically attached to its tail. It is, to put it simply... the void that is in all of us." Voidus wanted one thing, to be able to push the bounds of knowledge, and sell cookies while he was at it. So he used his ability to maneuver around universes to found an organization that would accomplish these goals. They would push the bounds of the most complicated and elegant of sciences, Hemalugy, and sell the spikes in cookies. The trick was actually getting people to buy their products. The members of this organization were the People you wouldn't want to meet in a Dark Alley. The people who would stab you in the back with a spike. Those who were connected with Voidus. Who shared his purpose, his drive. They played to their advantages, selling cookies in the backs of dark alleys. This was the foundation of the organization modernly known as the Dark Alley, known as the DA for short. To accomplish their second goal, Voidus realized that they would need a base of operations. To do this, he set up labs on the various worlds, because communication was impossible between the universes for anyone that wasn't a cosmic being. Unfortunately, these labs kept on rediscovering the wheel. They would make the same discoveries, once one on Earth discovered something, one on Nalthis would discover the same thing a week later. He realized that they needed a way to communicate, to share ideas for the progression of science. To accomplish this he founded the allies. He took some of the essence of every single universe, and wrapped around a single spike that he had stabbed through a random universe, to spike out its cosmic stability. He inserted the spike into the void, and stabbed it into it. This new found place, where bits of all the universe were connected, became the alleys. They became the shortcuts between buildings in the cosmic city. This was to be the Head Quarters of the Dark Alley. The World Spike was ahemalurgic spike that literally holds the alleyverse together. It was placed by Voidus in the beginning. To help prevent accidents, <REDACTED FOR SECURITY REASONS*>. Visually, the Alleys looked like an endless plane of alleys cutting through a city of empty buildings. Truly infinite, they followed no logical order, shifting and moving themselves to create the shortest path to what ever place a person needed. Its important to note, that the alleys are not under our control. As members of the DA, Voidus lets us manipulate the alleys to better achieve our mission. People who aren't members of the alleys don't have access to their spacial warping abilities. They aren't able to move the alleys like we can. The allies were connected to the different universes through their allies. Anything that was perceived to be a Dark Alley in the multiverse, could be used to teleport into any part of the allies by a denizen of the dark allies. To cover his creation from the rest of the multiverse, Voidus created a more physical representation of the alleys. If the Alleys were the cognitive realm, subject to the perception of Voidus, or whoever needed to use them and was granted power by voidus, this was the physical realm. Subject to the physical laws of earth and the cosmere and randland (these were the universes closest to the alleyverse) it was what most would consider the normal part of the alleyverse. It was built using the alleys as a base, a foundation, which were built using the world spike. People eventually found out about the allies. This physical plane was where they could safely reside. (for non denizens, the allies posed a danger. without cognitive manipulation it was nearly impossible to avoid the hordes of eldritch horrors that populated this plane.) On this physical plane, people gathered into guilds, each one with a goal. Many guilds rose to oppose the DA, but they eventually fell as they weren't strong enough. Other guilds survived for many years. Then, the plague struck. This was known as the plague of inactivity. It destroyed many guilds, most of their members left, either to join the infected, or to escape its horrible effects. The DA was able to survive, because of the Allies, and the fact that it could always retreat to its original labs on various worlds. It was the only guild left in the wreckage. Eventually, activity returned to the Alleyverse. With new guilds such as the Canton of Combat, TUBA, the Ghostbloods, the Liebrary, among others. you can see this modern history of the Alleys by reading various records. *Please note that the defenses of the world spike have been written and recorded, and when the RP reaches a point where they are necessary to reveal, the DA will provide a description with timestamps to show when they were finalized.
  16. Rules the Guild Wars Tournament and match ups below. The Tournament will be renewed every month to ensure that guilds don't earn the reputation of being the worst. The Guild War Tournament is a duel of Honor and Valor, no deaths will be occurring. There is another tournament going on at the same time. This is the Challenge of Champions Tournament. This tournament is to see who is the best at fighting, this will renew every month as well. To participate Challenge of Champions one will need to sign up here via quote. We high advise Rp when participating in any duel or tournament. Important Note: Separate RP Threads will be made and tagged with the name of GuildWars: GuildvGuild. Ex. GuildWars: DAvGB Rules: Guild Matchup:
  18. I have some questions, and am going to address them, but first. I am going to take on a project, I am going to become The Architect of the Alleyverse. I am going to create something similar to the national mall in D.C. where there are buildings from each organization (DA/LA/TUBA/GB/Liebrary/Bakeries/New Arena). If each group could respond with what type of building they would like that would speed this up. I am not sure the program I will use to create it, but it will be made. Now on to the questioning. With the recent revelations in the alleyverse, I am going to adress all of the members of the guilds that were involved. 1. Why were there so many people that joined the DA and then switched or were unloyal? 2. Why do you oppose or support the DA or foin the LA? (Not propaganda about why it exists, why you believe in it.) 3. When did you choose to join the fight for any side or switch sides? 4. Why be so closed door on your dealings within the LA/TUBA? 5. To the people that switched, why did you switch sides? When you see this please tag people and bring them in, I do not wish to tag 20 people in a single post, but I will tag a few, becasue I feel that this should be made public for all Sharders and Ally[ers]. @Archer @The Forgetful Archivist @MacThorstenson @Mraize I will now answer my questions so this is not an interrigation. 1. I cannot say for sure, but I believe it may be associated with the eccentricities of the DA, and the hemalurgy. 2. I support the DA because it is freedom. We choose what we want to do, and do it. I choose give out cookies, after the first to join, and to trick new members out of their souls, and I respect those who oppose me. 3. I chose to join the DA when I found it, in the intro threads. 4. I cannot answer this, as I was not a part of it. 5. I cannot answer this either. And last, to make everyone feel welcome, some Certified NON-Hemalurgic cookies as refreshments.
  19. So after making the rules of warfare and the guide to alley combat, we need some moderators to judge the outcomes of duels and assassinations. there are three types of moderators, they all shoul Non-bias: people who join this type must cut off all ties to any guilds involved with the alley-verse, they can judge all fights and make some important rules decisions, at least SOME experience with the alley-verse is required Bias: people who join this can still be affiliated with guilds, but cannot moderate actions between any guild that you are in. for example, lets say @LopenTheTwoArmedHerdazian wants to become a bias moderator, he cannot moderate a fight between the DA and the LA because he is part of the DA, but CAN moderate a fight between tCoC and the ghostbloods, because he is not affiliated with either guild. Rep's: each guild can nominate 1 or 2 members to be a rep, they can still fight, but they can't moderate, they (along with the leaders of each guild) help make decisions on the alley-wars rules, record deaths (who is dead, and who has been revived) and assassinations. Non-bias people are non-combatants, therefore they cannot kill or be killed. Bias people and reps can be killed, but that will not stop them from being able to moderate.
  20. It has come to my attention that, with all of the drama going on in the present, we are in need of a justice system, where we can try and punish any troublemakers who disregard the laws of the Alleyverse. If this is better suited for the Guilds forum, just tell me. Here is how it will work: One person will come to this thread demanding justice. The other will try to defend themselves. Then, a chosen group (some who are affiliated with the defendant, some affiliated with the prosecutor, and one who knows neither) will vote. If there are any suggestions for this system, please say them!
  21. @Mraize Has been screwing with us this whole time. He claimed the Ghostblood's were disbanded. This is very false. I discovered the plot when I saw this message: And this one: You can already see the beginnings of this. @PrinceDusty has joined TUBA. Clearly this is a plot to try and assassinate the whole of TUBA. I waited to publicly release this because Mraize has been a friend of the Liebrary for a long time. But if he is going to attempt a complete clearing of the guilds, then he must be stopped. I still hope for peaceful resolution, but I fear this may not be possible. I would like to apologize to @Archer and @Stormblessed Dolphin for having @MacThorstenson lie to them about the identity of the person who tipped him off. I wanted this to be known by the members of TUBA, but didn't want them to know it was me. Using Mac as my intermediary was my solution to this problem. Please. We beg of you. Join us in the fight against these traitors. @Nohadon @Voidus as well. We will all need to rise up against these people if we want to avoid complete death. Join us. Fight.
  22. Recently, there has been quite a bit of activity around here. The Canton of Combat, the Liebrary, TUBA, the Sticknaughts, the Sons of War and the Ghostbloods were all founded at most a few months ago, and a number of rules were put in place to allow more regular interaction between guilds, as well as Mediators to enforce these rules. Additionally, the Dark Alley removed themselves from the RP, claiming they were too powerful due to the use of Hemalurgy (which, I will say, I consider a fair reason). But that’s only the visible things. Because under the surface, much is happening that is not easily apparent. First of all, the Canton of Combat and the Liebrary. The Canton is more or less openly affiliated with the Dark Alley. It’s leader, Nohadon, is a member of the Dark Alley, and as the thread of the Canton of Combat shows, Hemalurgy sees frequent use. The Liebrary is said to be independent. However, it’s leader Kidpen is a member of the Dark Alley, and so is one of their most active members, The Forgetful Archivist. This alone already lends the Dark Alley a lot of power despite not participating in the RP. But it doesn’t stop here. I Think I am Here (who will henceforth be referred to as “Itiah”) has created the Sons of War, who have the explicit goal of sparking a guild war. A few days after founding the SoW, he contacted me in a personal message. From this conversation, I gained the knowledge that MacThorstenson might still be affiliated to the Dark Alley. Of course, this is not the most trustworthy source, which is why I did not act on this. I did discuss this with other people, however, and we noticed that The Forgetful Archivist and Kidpen (as well as MacThorstenson himself) had recently viewed Itiah’s profile, which could be an indication one of them, or even more of them, could be related to the Sons of War, either by being contacted or even by initiating this activity. The MacThorstenson story does not stop here, however. On top of his suspicious activities in intro threads, where he still advocated the Dark Alley despite supposedly being unbiased, he has been found to be active in PM conversations between members of the Dark Alley (screenshot below), which suspiciously also include Kidpen. Lastly, consider the mediators. The ones wo signed up are Nohadon (DA affiliated), MacThorstenson (supposedly neutral but secretly DA affiliated), Kidpen, Grey Knight (aka Potato, who claimed he was affiliated only with the Canton of Combat, but is shown to be affiliated with the Dark Alley through the same PM that incriminates MacThorstenson), ElephantEarwax (DA affiliated), Tineyed Navigator, Mraize, Gancho Libre and Snipexe. First of all, notice how these are either DA affiliated or part of the Ghostbloods or Sticks (who are neutral by default). It could not mean much, the Dark Alley is big, of course. But consider this. There are three conceivable ways that a roleplaying guild disappears. The first is though going inactive. The second is through joining another guild (typically the Dark Alley). The last one is through all members dying in roleplaying, either directly or through causing one of the first two. With TUBA being so directly opposed to the Dark Alley and having such a close-knit and active core, the first two options are unlikely to happen. The third? The Dark Alley may control the forces that stimulate a guild war. Even if they do not, they will support it. They control two of the four guilds that would fight in the guild war – the Liebrary and the Canton of Combat. And then we get to the scary part. Because who leads the combat if we get a guild war? Exactly. The mediators, who in large number (including their “Unbiased” leader MacThorstenson) are affiliated with the Dark Alley. This war, obviously, would lead with TUBA – and, depending on their affiliation, the Ghostbloods – losing, perhaps even being exterminated. And the Dark Alley is once again in full control. Now, even if this is simply a coincidence, and not intentional on the DA’s part (which, I have to say, I doubt), I think it clearly shows how the Dark Alley has far too much comparative power, and therefore TUBA will not participate in a possible war, as we cannot reasonably be expected to trust the neutrality of the Dark Alley and the members who are affiliated with it, and we would like to exist for longer than a few months, thank you very much. On behalf of TUBA, Leyrann (note that more proof can be provided if needed) --- Also some out of universe comments. I am a long time member (7 years this summer) of a social group on Dragonmount (the largest Wheel of Time fansite). There are a total of eight social groups on that site, even five years after the release of the last book. Each of these social groups has their own subforum, with again several subforums of themselves – my own social group, for example, has a total of 10 subforums, though several of them are restricted to certain ranks only. Though activity is, obviously, dwindling with the lack of new content, several of these subforums are still active, and in my first few years, when there was a steady influx of new members, all of them were active. I hope for the 17thshard to someday arrive at this point as well, with a sizable, healthy social group community that can become a “home” on the internet like Dragonmount became my home. Right now, however, this is not possible, because any guild that forms is immediately gobbled up by the DA one way or another. I hope for TUBA to be the first guild to remain active without ties to the DA, and I hope for more guilds to spawn eventually (perhaps, depending on their alignment, the Ghostbloods can be another one), from which such a community can grow, but this does require the DA to take a step back, as right now their presence is so overwhelming it’s suffocating.
  23. So recently I've seen a lot of posts about the "Alleyverse" and from what I've seen it sounds really interesting. So I was wondering if there was a specific post explaining it fully and the factions and whatnot, and if there isn't could someone please explain it here Thanks
  24. So after talking in the rules of warfare thread, @Mraize, @Archer and me have come up with how the combat system should work when A fight breaks out, each person starts with a certain amount of HP (lets say, 100 for now) it's turn-based combat, with the moderator deciding who gets to go first. the person who goes first gets to attack/move first, they can do up to three actions (other effects can increase this limit, like feruchemical speeds). Possible actions include: Making an attack Moving more than 20 meters in any direction Saying things over 50 words long Bonus actions include: Saying things less than 50 words moving less than 20 metres Burning/tapping metals Breathing in stormlight the person who goes second gets a reaction and three actions the reaction must happen before any other actions can be made. Once the first action has been called, the moderator describes it, and the second player must react, then counter, which the moderator then describes, the moderator chooses how he decides the outcome, suggested decision-making processes include: 1. Dice rolls (similar to D&D) 2. Most likely outcome the moderator then subtracts the HP from the players and makes "debuffs" (like bleeding, concussed, unconscious, etc) then the cycle repeats until one of the players either yields, (in case of a duel) dies or is knocked out. the moderator will then pronounce the outcome of the fight, and then the fight ends. of course, there are many variations, it's not just a single recipe, so the moderator may change up the rules a bit, especially in mass or team combat. so moderators, use your descretion!
  25. New info has come to light; the Dark Alley has spread their sinister web even to Sanderson himself! Someone must inform him of the truth! Quick, at the next signing, someone must reveal the truth to disillusion Sir Sanderson!
