Team Spirit arrived in Aeden Aqueous

Not so long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away happened devastating changes a small group of old republic sympathizers could not tolerate. Into exile we had to go. (( Star Wars Galaxies had a huge revamp called NGE which ruined the game in our opinion )) We left our home, Misty Island, a small river island where we had built a small town with love. We closed our shops, said goodbyes to our friends, took the last glance behind and left Corellia and the whole galaxy. Suddenly our wealthy group was refugees looking for a new home and new challenges.

One of our scouts, Goupi, who left first, had sent an interesting report about a strange living planet, Atys. She wrote that people were friendly, the nature was beautiful yet dangerous but most importantly it might provide us great possibilities for our new beginning.

About a week later the main group arrived on a refugee island. The first reaction was quite shocking, however. Our skilled fighters and crafters realized their old skills were mostly useless in this strange new world and there was nobody to really guide us. But we had no choice, we had to learn the basics of magic, how to use a pickaxe to gather materials and so on. We also noticed we have to swim a lot, but as we lived on an island before that was not an issue.

As we just arrived in Atys, this planet is still a big mystery to us. But most of our members have seen many other planets and lived long before we came here. We love peace but we are also ready to defend our homeland. We lost some members while travelling here, so we might try to compensate the loss. But generally we like the atmosphere of a small and tight group and want to preserve long lasting friendships.

We came here to stay. However, new worlds are discovered all the time so we might leave one day to explore and seek new challenges. But we would really like to make this our permament home where to come back after adventuring few months somewhere. This pretty much depends on the owners of the planet and what kind of new possibilities and methods they give us to build our new home. We like to have our own small village to design and build, houses we can decorate and our own civic structures we can place and utilize.

We also hope to find many new friends, like we have already found. It seems that this planet has extraordinarily nice inhabitants.

Re: Team Spirit arrived in Aeden Aqueous

Welcome to Atys.

Other spacefarers have settled here succesfully such as The Ballistic Mystix http://www.ballisticmystix.com/sagaOfBM.jsp

The world of Atys is subtle, strange and challenging.

Atys gives holds it secrets tight and they must be teased out. At first glance the lakes may seem simple with a few different creatures scattered around, then you may find that some creatures are more resistant to certain magics or weapons. So you may ask whether clothes made from materials dropped by those creatures are also resistant to those same magics or weapons. Crafters have their own secret recipes and spend ages discovering new 'hidden' combinations of materials.

Fighters may need to select their weapons and how they fight to hunt a particular creature.

The lakes are varied and you will find your own favoured hunting or foraging grounds. Just the other day I got lost right near to Fairhaven and found a hidden valley filled with creatures, plants and foraging spots. This was a place I had wandered past many times and was surprised to stumble across it.

Travel a bit and you will find strange new creatures, new lands and new challenges. Sometimes I will just stop and watch a sunset, creatures coming down to a waterhole or enjoy the varied seasons.

There are marvels like the Flaming Forest which burns down to ashes and cinder, but the grows to be green and verdant only to be consumed by flames again.

I have been here many Atys years, but I am still learning and finding out more.

(P.S. The forums are full of things about the 'new' changes, don't forget that these are layered on top of a very complex living world)

Re: Team Spirit arrived in Aeden Aqueous

From the shattered galaxy remains, not noticed by the aggressors, a small gray shuttle prepared its engines for the hyperspace jump. Nobody could really follow the jump not only because it was technically difficult to do it but also because not even the small group of refugees had known the precise direction. All that they wanted was going far away from their home turned to ashes.

After the random jump finished and the stars once again took their places in the dark depths of the space, first calculations suggested a route towards a small green planet. So they approached. And as the distance grew thinner all people inside the shuttle felt more and more sleepy. They tried to fight dizziness but nothing could stop it, not even the best of their old home drugs.

And in their green foggy dreams they saw a tall woman and they knew she was Jena, nobody needed to be told so, and extending energy branches from the ground to the sky they felt the Kami powers, diffuse, allowing them to land, allowing them to be. The tall woman of their dreams then looked at their bodies and thought they were adepts of freedom, individualist still lovers of small communties, she saw through their opened dreams their pretty houses they were once proud of, their fights, and their encounters with unknown monsters and mages. They felt her eyes digging into them...

...and they woke up. The shuttle was completely shattered on what seemed to be a small island. Nothing could have been recovered, no instrument to track their old galaxy, no means to communicate back anymore, none of the data devices that stored their knowledge. And when they looked at each others they staretd to laugh. They were all trykers. Small creatures of the lakes, delicately built over their strong wills of freedom and individual initiative, over their love for warm homes, comfort and small communities federation.

Large zabraks lost their horns, wookies were hairless, humans shrinked, rodians were no longer green, twi'leks had no lekus: we were homins, and of all homins trykers. Some of us couldn't remember their names anymore and strange enough the others couldn't remind the lost names either. We looked like children again and we get delight in that.

When facing first attack we have all of us remembered strangely the kitin war, about the unknown forces that made the portals for us, and about the reconstruction. New hope and new fighting force raised, and our arms raised to fight again, and our arms were crafting once more to continue a history we didn't even know we knew, to make a new home.

Salute all homins, honoured to live among you.

Re: Team Spirit arrived in Aeden Aqueous

Welcome to the Lakelands! Maybe you can help us figure out how to work these stolen wrist-laser thingies? I just can't figure out the ammo plan. Resin and oil just seem to gum them up!

Go throw something at Spriteh to get your guild listed on the sticky. He's really big so he's an easy target.

Hey, I heard that ¬¬


Also, having just flicked through your forums, I notice one of your members is named "aen". Unfortunately there is an NPC bandit boss in SoR named "Aen the Desert Blade", so they will be unable to use aen as their character name though perhaps you already found that one out because you already chose a different name

Re: Team Spirit arrived in Aeden Aqueous

Hi,

I see that the Team Spirit Guild is a bunch of Star Wars Galaxies players. I was wondering how I would go about joining the guild, since I played Star Wars Galaxies too. I mean, if you want me, I would be thrilled to be around fellow men and women of the movement. Could someone help me pinpoint where I need to be, how I go about signing up? I'm assuming all guild members are Trykers, yes?

Regards,
SpiritCrawler
