We have the following BGA initiatives that you should be aware of:
Caedenite Map: We STILL need people to help finish translating the Caedenite Map - only two more people needed to get it done! We’ve had it for a year now and we really want to get it finished but everyone has too much stuff they’re tied up in. We don’t know 100% what it reveals when translated, but it could be important, or part of a long chain of clues and we need to get it solved before we can figure out the next steps. We may want to show the map to the cadenites in some way - either by showing it to the ghosts or showing it to the weird thing with eye hands, which claims to be OG Cadenite, as part of the map needs knowledge (cadenite) and I think we are trying to bypass this by studying it? Talk to Nisira (Jess) for more details (though I now have pictures).
Invocations: We continue to research invocations in preparation for one which will likely be performed by Archon’s father the king of Plyth in an attempt to “deal with” that which slumbers. Talk to Nisira (Jess).
Eternus: Eternus is a spirit from the after who is somehow tied to the shrine we brought back from Caeden. We’ve fought him before. His job is to guard the town the from outsiders. If we give him a body, he can do that. He needs hearthstones. As far as we know only the Garians who were working with Braig know where Hearthstones can be found.
Blight Cure: We are working on curing those afflicted with Blight. Everyone who has the blight can pitch in. Materials have been collected (tissue / blood samples from the afflicted, root of vir, sap of vir). Need Prophets! Have some ritualists and alchemists helping, but that kind of skill is also useful. Talk to Mirna (Katrina)
Investigate the Trouble With the Home Tree: Possibly related to the blight, if you care about the Home Tree and want to figure out what’s wrong with it, Gwanwyn Anwylyd is investigating! To pitch in, talk to Gwanwyn (Marie).
Researching the Branded
Nico is reading a journal that has recorded locations of vir groves and branded prison camps. If you want to learn about the branded and form a strategy for our next foray into the origin, help him out! The journal itself requires Branded knowledge which only he has but you may learn a thing or two studying it with him! Talk to Nico (Dan Venskus).
Shifter Research: The Branded
Steelcore Compeer will be working with Mattias to learn more about the nature of the Branded from a shifter angle. If you want to get down with your inner wall of flesh, talk to Steelcore (Peter).
Fytheias is hunting down and brutally butchering vir. It’s revenge time, baby! Talk to Fytheias (Andy).
Training with Lord Igneus
If you are looking to firebro it up and have a real blast, then look no further! Fytheias is training with Lord Igneus. If you want to join up, talk to Fytheias (Andy).
Hunting The Worm
Unclear as to whether or not any BGA is happening this time to do with this or if it’s just an activity that is happening this event ping me if you find out.
Artifice Research: Weapons
Valerius Decimus is researching artifice weapons with braig, specifically working on a spear to help Archon. He’ll be working with Braig using the True Forge. If you want to join in the fight and learn how to build amazing weapons with the power of artifice and the True Forge, hit up Valerius (Ryan).
Prison: A prison is being constructed by the automatons we built in our last BGA cycle. It could be improved upon (right now it is merely a physical prison in progress).
Zephylin: Mithra and I are looking into building a Zephylin, a flying boat thing. I think we have all we need to make that happen, but if you’re into artificer plot we’re taking a detour from constructs to experiment with airships! Talk to Vesper or Mithra (Paul or Liam).
Constructs: There are several ways to work with constructs:
1.) As a solo artificer
2.) Working with a ritualist
Option one will get you an upgradable utility slot item, or you might be able to build prosthetics for people. Option 2 will let you build a new automaton (we currently have 2 that artificers can control). Note that Mithra and Mirna are both working on different things this round so you will need to find another ritualist. Vesper will be back on this plot again after airship construction wraps. It looks like no construct plot is happening this round, so if you are interested then congratulations: You are the organizer! Let me know so I can update this.
Feel free to post additions or updates to this list, and I will update it.
