Lady of Darkness
Militha is the only child of the Crescendum family. As she turned out to be a female, she was given training both in the physical and the arcane arts. The Crescendum family valued strength, and so she was pushed to her limits every day. Not once did she end the day without feeling tired, and often she was sore as well from her weapons training and time spent mastering her concentration necessary to use the arcane arts. It was not a short time before her family deemed her ready to go to the surface world from Unlit City. In fact, it was not until she had spent two years studying and learning how to use weapons that they let her go. By that point, she had mastered enough of the ways of her kin to feel comfortable on her own. She was now truly a lady of darkness, and the dark-knight guild welcomed her.


A female humanoid is here. She has skin like sleek obsidian, glossed almost as though a thin layer of glass was put on top of it. This thin layer is undoubtedly her sweat, based on the scent which comes from her direction. There would appear to be something wrong with her eyes, based on her gaze. But this gaze is simply an open, predatory stare, almost as though she is challenging you to cross her. This is supplemented with an ever present smirk, giving her the air of arrogance and self-confidence.

  1. There's a lot I want to say, but let me first of all thank Kryton and Paeix for being such fun opponents. Quinace also deserves a nod of recognition. Savanti, you'll get quite far by not giving up.

    Ozaru, I don't want to be that one asshole by singling you out, but... You have such potential for becoming an elite player but it's wasted on paranoia and pettiness. If you put more effort into your RP and tried to have fun instead of focusing only on PKing I think you'd do better. People aren't out to get you (at least I'm not), but playing the exact same way all the time means people go, "Oh that's another Ozaru character, I know exactly what to expect from him."

    The Knights seemed to disappear once I explicitly refused the oath... Well, now that I'm gone I hope you come back!

    I'd like to see the Consortium members spend more time playing outside of the late Friday/early Saturday surge, and less time being with one another to the point where nobody ever sees them alone. Several members are guilty of this. Ilromie, you're a goddamn coward who talks big and doesn't have a foot to stand on. The one time I didn't see you on at that specific time, I saw you scurry away from me like a rat at a time I was hunting Terrath... I came across you at random east of Valour, passed by you (without attacking), and you logged off well within a minute of my merely passing by. Valindra wasn't as bad... In fact I was enjoying our relationship. Were it not for the fact that I was focusing primarily on PKing I might have actually considered a career as a Herald.

    The whole Darkhan business made things fun. I remember I was all set to take the oath and one of the Immortals, who was swapped into the fanatic priest, had some interactions with me. "You have forgotten me" were words spoken, which reminded me of one of the old Disney movies I watched over and over as a kid.

    All in all I had fun. Not a terrible ratio I suppose. Kryton was a brute... Now he's definitely the big dog.
    1. And I'm really sorry for disappearing, I didn't exactly have much choice last month.

      You're pouring cold water on this with these post-delete negative call-outs.
    3. You're right Dav. I'll not do that in the future.
    4. So let me follow up again... I want to apologize for my needless callouts and brash conduct. I'd rather not be remembered for that over all the other stuff I did. I'll admit I didn't like Ilromie much sometimes due to some of our interactions (I was trying to attend an event at one point and Krask kept interrupting my participation, which ultimately led to some hurt feelings after I accidentally hit Istina). With that said, I can't really fault her for her actions. Just because I didn't like them at times doesn't mean I had to act out as I did a couple days ago. And I'm sorry.

      First, no need to apologize. AR is a very aggressive game, where we are literally killing one another, but, its pretty silly to trash talk after logging off / deleting. itd look especially dumb coming from "the elite". of course many of us enjoy a good dumpster fire because there's something wrong with us. but its not what we needed. what we need is for our players to be nice guys once they get off the game, even if they just logged off a nec. we need to maintain mutual respect for one another on the forums. i know sometimes that's as challenging to do as being good at pk'ing (if not more so) but that's definitely how to prove that we love this game and key to it flourishing. plenty of us with work to do here.

      1. Ah Militha, my old nemesis. Well done. DK in strife felt a little awkward but you had a swagger about you that made it work. You tip-toed on the line quite nicely and created tension for the rest of us.
        1. Ah yes, that reminds me. The primary reason I went Strife was access to tenacity. I wanted to show what could be done with it, since people were talking about it at one point in the patch threads along with the Warlords stuff...

          Another thing which heavily worked in my favor was the addition of the tracking command. It's definitely not as OP as the golden road was but still pretty strong. It might need to be adjusted a bit to not work in areas like the Void or Shadow Grove.

          elaborate on what you mean by "not work in the void"
        3. as in, you can't track someone in the void rooms if they enter them (same goes for the Shadow Grove). I was finding it really easy to get through the shadow grove by simply tracking my opponent's movements, which kind of defeated the purpose of it having a random layout if you ask me (at least from a PKing perspective).
        4. you know how you can't track someone in a watery room? Something like that, applied to those rooms is what I'm thinking of as a fix.
        [reply to Quinace]
      2. Noooooooooooooooo, I was planning to give my final death to your sword!
        1. My thoughts....superb roleplay, every interaction I had with Militha was great, you brought out the 'knight' aspect of the dark knights very well,especially being a member of Strife. You were a terror on the field that I could never overcome. Some of your RP I'll be forever traumatized by though I was giggling internally the whole time and trying to figure out how in the hell to play it. The oathing business, I was very proud of, even after a suspicious Imm put the kibosh on it with their own RP, it still made for a great time. Thank you for being a challenging opponent!
        2. I enjoyed our interactions as well, Savanti.

          Make no mistake, I had seriously been considering the oath until it became clear there were consequences if I actually did it. Being an outcast isn't fun (I know this from personal experience), and that seemed like the obvious consequence, so I decided to take the strong suggestion from the fanatic priest that I should reconsider my decision.

          After that, I was wondering when or even if ever I would be considered anathema because it seemed obvious that I could handle any of the Knights one-on-one. I enjoyed pushing the limits at first, and was basically gaining souls with Mourneblade before my final note to Thandus and the Archons when I decided it was time to stop being so passive.

          Overall, I enjoyed being a figure similar to the Green Knight from the tale "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" - a challenger to the heroes, though not one without honour.
        [reply to Savanti]
      3. Once you had mourneblade maxed, coupled with shirk, it made things extremely difficult. Very tough fight from there on. Weapon and combat advantage was putting out joke damage compared to what I was taking. Had to replace the voulge with centurion's just for vuln damage. You absolutely destroyed me on the eastern road.. sanc fell and the triton dirted me...just a brutal beat down. Not sure how I survived that one at all. Lucky RNG with the centurions polearm is what prevailed in our last fight.
        Good run, Militha. Look forward to your next char.

            Like Nadrin said, we do have a uniform process now. Which is a good thing. Instead of one singular opinion could make the move to HoE at a whim.
            But, I still think it's good thing for the community to voice their opinion with +1's and -1's. That shows a character was elite status in their eyes, and that player deserves that recognition in their GY.
            I encourage the community to give that opinion. I always liked it when everybody chimed in with a +1 hoe(Ygin for example).

            That's basically what I do at this point. It honestly doesn't matter because as stated there is a new process but I for sure am gonna still recognise anyone who's character I feel meet the standard. With that being said well done.

          This was a great character. I especially liked the angle of trying to honor an old God and making rp choices based on it. I enjoyed all our interactions. Well done and wish you the best of luck with future characters.

            I feel like our playtimes are misaligned or something. Out of Linisan, Skeggi and Hardulf I only fought you once on Linisan (beat you up after you underestimated me and attacked in town) and had one chance for a duel on hardulf but you had to go.

            If you’re upset with the scholars why not just kill them? I’m sure you could have rp’d a reason for it.

            Not going to cheer/boo/yawn since I barely interacted with you on any chars but it looks like the feedback is overall positive. That’s nice.

            Would have been neat to see how you would have done against Szrevan. I found that to be a hard fight with a dark elf DK. Much harder than fighting an uncaballed fire warrior I’d suspect. That’s not a dig at Kryton, I’m not saying he is bad, just pointing out how strong mico tenor slith warlord is.

            I was really looking forward to fighting you with my new char (if our times ever matched up). Good luck with the next, hopefully see you on the battlefield.
            1. Perhaps ironically Kalist, *you* taught me how to play the reworked class... Remember Aelaldric? I fought you at one point on a different character, then figured out some other things later as I went along on Militha.

              And I did fight Szrevan once in a duel to the death. He destroyed me as you might expect, though my gear was nowhere near as good as it was when I was at my peak.

              Re: Aelaldric haha nice, that was a fun char.

              Oh man I didn’t even check szrevan record before I said that, militha is old AF!
            3. Oh and as for the timing... You tended to come on at around 10 PM my time, and since I now work full time and have to be up at 6:30 in the morning, any extended fight would generally hurt my sleep. I found work about a year ago after a period of unemployment. I was able to fight Linisan I believe because I didn't yet have commitments... After a while, I wasn't able to come on until 5:30 PM on weekdays due to my schedule and travel time. I actually earned an effective promotion a few months ago, and this meant among other things that I had increased commitments - commitment to my team, commitment to my job, commitment to meeting deadlines, commitment to responsibility for making things happen, and more. As such, I didn't log on as much later on in the day because when I have too little sleep, it can become dangerous for me to be driving (I've avoided accidents but that doesn't mean one wouldn't happen). Commute time is half an hour each way so it's not insignificant.

          2. Oh dear, another friend dead and gone! I, too, have wished on occasion that my comrades were more present at different times. Not that I'm around more... but my off hours get so lonely in the taverns!

            While we never danced your preferred number (it's not a jig I know well...), I always enjoyed your presence. I deeply appreciated how much a massive PK side player like you engaged with the Consortium. You consistently attended events and submitted works. Watching your and Savanti's relationship develop just through the written works was a joy. And while you apparently have hard feelings about never getting to come to blows with the Polymath, I adored the tension you two created while still maintaining the peace of the taverns. Sorting out teams for Kesaria's puzzle room and doing it with you is one of my favorite memories of recent times for the interpersonal aspects at play.

            I also want to thank you heartily for actually applying for my gifts and entertaining the questions! It turns out not many will! You were unique and lovely. Cheers!
            1. It was out of respect for Valindra that I avoided doing anything in the taverns. Ilromie just irritated me and I found it annoying that she never seemed to be around aside from what for me was the Friday night surge and yet was talking about ruining of immersion due to a simple statement I made when it ruined *my* immersion to see her on at the exact same time every week, and no other times. I understand the whole situation of not being around at other times better when you put the way you did though, Trillian.
            [reply to Trillian]
          3. The surge is meant to bring people together for ranking, end game, and pk. Of course that is when I am going to schedule my limited time so I can be available. Preferable to logging in during the dead of night just to hoard rares.

            Its disappointing to see you carrying a grudge because I called out your obvious anachronism. Next time you see my on my way home while you're fighting someone else, let me know you want to go 2v1 and I'll happily oblige.

            1. Elegy for Another Dark Lady

              Who will polish Mournblade now?
              Who will shirk her duties?
              Who keens for her among the Drow?
              I sing of grief and cruelty.

              Who will share the latest gossip?
              Who will trash the Knights?
              Who will bring my favorite outfit--
              A tutu—to a knife fight?

              Who, who, who? I am an owl
              Or something less familiar:
              I hoot and scream and cry and howl.
              To hear it might have killed her.

              But here she lies: gone, dead, and so—
              I close another chapter--
              A mourning song, who’s next to go?
              I sing of what comes after.

            2. Militha, ye were a most impressive dark-knight. I enjoyed our fights despite bein' on the losin' end most often. Ye know the ways o' yer guild like no other. Always appreciated the civility between us within the walls o' the Rest. Ye kept me on me toes and fer that I have the utmost respect fer ye. Best o' luck on yer next.
