Akuma Kyodai - The Demon Siblings' refuge
xadrow posted a topic in Clans et peuplesBienvenu sur le topic pour Akuma Kyōdai. Akuma Kyōdai est un projet fantastique japonais/asiatique, ayant pour but d'être un projet décoratif et Rp. Situé au Sud de New-Stendel, Akuma Kyōdai est une île peuplée de Yōkai et d'Oni, des créatures mythologiques nippones, dirigés par deux sœurs qui ne s'entendent pas particulièrement à merveille, Hikari et Yami. Le projet avait (et d'un certain côté a toujours) une vocation d'être un projet qui ouvre la porte vers l'apprentissage d'une nouvelle langue: l'anglais. Partant à la base d'un gimmick personnel, le projet est conçut pour essayer de lancer un approfondissement de la connaissance de cette langue (certains diront barbare) à travers un univers différent et en forme de jeu. Toute étiquette, panneau, livre ou élément est à la base écrit en anglais, et une traduction est produite là où nécessaire. Vous pouvez ainsi, lorsque vous êtes dans le channel mumble du projet ou encore sur ce sujet même, communiqué librement en français ou en anglais. Vous trouverez toutes les informations les plus importantes concernant le projet, incluant des explications sur l'architecture, le RP, les membres, les commerçants, les dons faits au projet, le recrutement de nouveau membres, des rapports sur le progrès du projet et des offres de loteries. La discussion n'est pas restreinte aux membres du projet, donc vous êtes tous les bienvenus. Cabinet d'Architecture *Note: Le cabinet est en cours de rénovation, mais vous êtes toujours libre de jeter un coup d’œil. Bibliothèque des Loristes Hierarchie et organisation du projet : - En cours d'édition - Comment rejoindre le projet? Pour rejoindre le projet, une petite présentation s'impose. Vous êtes invitez à écrire ci-dessous: - vos motivations pour rejoindre le projets, - montrer (si possible) votre travail précédent ou vos qualités de constructeur, tout style confondu, - expliquer en RP pourquoi/comment votre personnage veux s'associer avec une communauté de Yōkai et d'Oni recluse du monde "civilisé". Si vous préférez, vous pouvez aussi me l'envoyer en MP sur le forum. Une fois cette candidature traitée, vous rentrés en phase test (durée variable dépendant de l'investissement). Durant cette période, vous êtes Ronin. Vous serez invités à construire votre demeure sur le territoire, construction pendant laquelle vous apprendrez les nuances de la constructions asiatique (si vous ne les connaissez pas encore). Une fois la période de test passée, vous passez Bushi. Les Membres
[Accepted] [Project] Akuma KyōdaiPREFACE: Avant tout, je voudrais faire une petite dédicace à TheGaudis pour avoir spoiler ce projet dans sa candidature de Chevalier (c’est un type un peu relou sympa comme tout, donc allez-y jeter un petit coup d’œil). De plus, la demande de ce projet sera rédigée intégralement (à l’exception de la préface) en Anglais, principalement car mon niveau de français, bien que tout à fait correct, ne me permet plus de m’exprimer de la façon que je veux depuis que j’ai commencé mes études au Royaume-Uni. Je m’excuse d’avance de la potentielle barrière linguistique que ceci pourrait poser, mais en même temps je cherche à innover. Si vous avez quelconque soucis vis-à-vis de la compréhension même du sujet, je peux répondre en français, bien que cela ruine mon petit gimmick. Bon, allons-y. 悪魔兄弟 Akuma kyōdai Overall Presentation of the concept: The city is based off a fantasy Japanese universe, filled with spirits and demons (Yokai). It mixes both traditional Japanese housing styles from the countryside and a fantasy skyscraper section with high density housing because of requirements for living space. The purpose of this town is mainly aesthetic and lore related, but also to be used as a potential reference for people who seek to spice up some of their builds, or learn about different Japanese building styles. Alternatively, it can also be used for housing players in dire need of a home. As an added feature of the design, the city will be multilingual, i.e., both French and English. The reason for this choice is to open up to a potential English community, but also to provide a helping hand for players who seek to learn English in a more in-depth manner, meaning, every message board, book and feature will have its name in both French and English. This concept might be awkward, but we feel like this could be a valuable tool in the expansion of the community and the server as a whole. This choice will in NO WAY discriminate any player who wishes to join, and the team is more than ready to speak in both languages if required. Joining the project does not require you to know both languages, but it’s a useful bonus. Technical Details: -Project name: Akuma Kyōdai -Dimensions: Approximately 600*400 given the shape of the land (water areas included) -Max height: 256 -Used area in this area: surface, underground and sky for floating islands. -Objectives: mainly aesthetic, complimentary RP to another existing project (to be revealed later on), housing. -Leaders/Founders: Xadrow -Other participants: TheGaudis, Glieps, BA06 -Location and Overall Border: Lore: NOTE: This is the role play section. For the purpose of this highly irregular project, I have prepared an even more irregular presentation of the Lore of the village: a full-on theatrical video. Because I am conscious that not everyone’s level of English is the same, I’ve decide to put the text of the video as a spoiler underneath it. I will apologize for there not being a translation, but I really couldn’t have something as epic as I wanted it to be translated into French… it just didn’t work for me. Also, if this project is accepted, expect an extended lore in the RP Tavern or in the potential forum thread (if we ever get there). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVCDPkh91rU&feature=youtu.be Environmental Work implied: - Flattening out certain high hills and removing all grass for the build. - Cutting off the north by making a river, making the landmass an island - Adding the sakura belt - Terraforming the middle area for dense housing, while trying to keep the water flowing through (see on explicative maps further) - Adding 2 large floating islands and smaller floating chunks of land. - Naturalize the area once finished building. Construction Style and Details: Being heavily inspired by Japanese mythology, the building style goes accordingly: it will mainly consist of Japanese shrine like buildings, including small houses to temples and a manor/palace. On top of that, some of the streets are intended to feel kind of oppressing, with tight passages among tall buildings (similar to some scenes in Singapore in “Pirates of the Caribbean 3”). The main materials will be wood and derived blocks (using both traditional Minecraft blocks as well as the full extent on the specific wooden blocks offered by the server, such as flower pots or overhangs/supports). The roof will be made out of netherbrick with a red slate trim. This detail is the key element of this project: a vivid red and purple roof contrasting with a light/mild and soft colour set for the main housing. For most builds, the white walls will be made out of white marble for the richer houses and wool or snow for the less fortunate. Except for functional buildings, skyscrapers and landmarks, including roads and decorations, cobblestone or any stone affiliated block is preferably not used, if not even banned. The reason for this is to keep a traditional look to the city, while at the same time show that it’s more of a small village instead of a huge industry filled metropolis, hence there will be little to no glass, metal or carved stones included in most buildings (some exceptions may obviously occur, as with all builds). Eventually, Aka and Ao, the dragons from the Lore, will get their place as protecting guardians of the city, and will get life size versions built as well. Whether we will build them flying in the sky or underground still remains to be seen. One of the key themes of this project is oppression: the woods, the dense city and the temples will be made in such a way that you feel small or weak in front of the later. This can be explained lore wise (Yokai scare humans by nature), so it should feel mystical and unknown to people who venture onto the paths around the land. Buildings are also a lot larger in size (each floor is 5 blocks high) to add onto this idea of immenseness and oppression, and is justified by the fact that most of the Yokai are a lot taller than humans. Building would go as follows: -the south idle housing will be built first, slowly growing into the larger city, with the market very closely following; -The sakura forest and orchards, as well as the farmlands will come next; -temples, shrines and towers follow; -The floating islands, each independently to be finished before passing onto the next one. The reasoning behind this building order is to have a suitable project to show to people as soon as possible, and to avoid having a huge build site for too long at a time. Ultimately, this could also allow for a potential redesign of the floating islands at a later date, as they are not concrete as of yet. The city will be planned (mostly) as follows: The following screen shots are examples of the style that will be used for various buildings, as well as concept buildings for main monuments: 1. Idle housing 2. Temple 3. Lumberjack camp 4. Off road 5. City road 6. High tier house 7. Dragon tower 8. City skyscraper 9. Blacksmith 10. Harbor 11. Farmland and houses 12. Shrine 13. Market 14. Trees 15. The Palace Building would also include adapting two bridges that exist already (the small one coming from Icarus and the large one inside of the terrain) to fit to the style of the project, as well as rework the pre-existing roads into the off-road style. The sand bridge leading to Säbhia will not be touched (unless something arises in the future diplomatic relations with the latter) and neither will the large bridge leading to Icarus (as requested by Glieps, owner of Icarus). As a final note for this section, I (and all the future members of this project) am aware of the prices that come with building a city, especially this size, and we are willing to take our time to make this dream come true. Politics and Society: On the political standpoint, the city is a kingdom based on a militaristic hierarchy, with the power evenly split between two Over-Shogun, the Yokai sisters, impersonated by yours truly. Any by-passer is considered a Ronin; this means all players, in the eyes of the system, are called Ronin. Anyone who wishes to help with building or anything to aid the project within the first few months receives a citizenship’s offer, which includes a plot of land for a home. Citizenship afterwards would require a little token of kindness, whether it would be a small contribution of resources or silver coins (to still be determined). Getting the rank of Exalted Elder means you are an important and respected member of the project. You can partake in decisions for larger community buildings. However, the Daimyo of the land are the only ones allowed to supervise larger builds and have the final word on whether a certain aesthetical choice should be approved of or not. They follow the Shogun’s will unless told differently. The reason for this is that the project will try to marry a few different styles together, but the base concept needs to be kept. The Daimyo are chosen again by yours truly, myself. * The ranks of the players are displayed by the roof crests on their houses. There will be 4 crest designs, each associated to a rank. If a player gets a new rank, they are to update the crest themselves. A registry will be held on who is on what rank. If a player is found to fraud their crest, they will be banned from the project. * The habitants are peaceful and neutral, but due to their Yokai nature, if war should arise, they would fight to the death. The town does currently not partake in any alliance, organisation or corporate, and it’s standpoint on the matter is that it would rather stay on its own. Much like traditional Japanese society, the habitants, although open to regional trade, stick to themselves. The philosophy is that most humans cannot be trusted. * The Dragon Festival, celebrating the Mother of Dragons (probably around spring), is an event that will be held at least once a year, where anyone is welcome to join for food, drinks, potions, dance and all sorts of fun. This will held in 3 potential locations: one of the orchards, the main square or in one of the dragon’s dens. * If an Exalted Elder, Daimyo or Shogun leaves the project for any reason (including banishment of the project), it will be considered as the Death of said person, and a feast will be organised to morn him and send him off to the city of ghosts (Amaterasu). They will also receive a tombstone in the Yūrei no niwa (Garden of Ghosts). Final Notes: One of the main personal objectives of this project for me is to intertwine its existence and its lore with other Japanese inspired projects, and try to create a link in such a way that if you think of one project, you can’t help but think about the other ones. It wouldn’t be to create a new union, but to have a unified RP I can build later tales on (and maybe an event or two in the process?) I’ve been working on this project for over a year, refining, reviewing and restarting several times, in hopes to please most people. While I know a few elements might look a bit like Amaterasu (dragons, Yokai populace…), I’ve done my best to create an original story and style, with a universe that works alongside the former. If you find there is something that I was unclear about or you have any questions, please ask away, I’ll be more than happy to explain anything you wish to know or learn about. Neighbours terms and Agreements: - Current land “owners”: - bygdaddy21 - diamond57 - cynfor62 (aka Thomas62630) - Flareheat - 3 more houses with owners I could not identify as of yet because they haven’t got a sign saying it’s their house. A Scribe (Sadaroh) is currently working on the formalities as it would seem all these players would have abandoned the houses. - Icarus: Accepted -Caras Galadhon: pending [moderator’s project] -Valmont: pending [moderator’s project] -Säbhia: pending [moderator’s project] My most sincere thanks to: -TheGaudis: For helping me with everything, from concepts to organization, to how to proceed with the formalities of founding projects. I’m not kidding when I say that if it weren’t for him, this project would probably never have seen the light of day. -Stalroc: For honouring me with his voice acting for the Lore video, as well as his acting performance and for his support during my concept, design and finalizing stages -Kélaïre: For its beautiful location for the filming of the Lore end scene. -Icarus: For accepting my project to be placed next to theirs. -Appalahuacs: for her amazing performance of Xadrow during the Lore end scene. -Sadaroh: for relieving me of my fear that someone was preparing a project on the same land as I was, and for helping me out with the abandoned houses. -Novi: for making a generous donation of 5000 Silver Coins ( PA ) under the condition that the project would be accepted. More people to come eventually Post updates: -26/09/15: TheGaudis joined the project Glieps joined the project -29/09/15: added confimation that Bygdaddy21 has moved out of his previous home. -1st/10/15: added end artwork -4th/10/15: received a conditional donation of 5000 PA from Novi -10th/10/15: added screenshots of the Palace design -16th/10/15: BA06 joined the project To be filled in eventually Thank you for reading, thank you for your time, and thank you for your interest. I hope to see you all at the ceremonial opening when the Sakura trees blossom.

Tales of a Blood Slime
xadrow posted a topic in La taverne (RP)PROLOGUE ...You walked into the tavern, dripping wet from the storm outside. It was dark, poorly lit by a few candles across the main counter. A rather brutish looking man was cleaning a beer glass behind it, looking at you with a dubious stare, scanning for anything that might make his business even harder than it already was. The people in the tavern all turned as you came in, staring intensively at you as you walked down towards the counter. Each step was as if you were on the point of tripping a bear trap. "Une chope s'il vous-plait," you asked. The mood brightened up into a sudden uproar, and people started cheering, chanting and dancing as a olden band played in one of the corners. It had turned from a empty room to a dinning hall. Beer and food flew over the tables, a few dwarves were on the point of smashing a table with an axe, and a bunch of men were showing off with an arm-wrestling contest. "Qu'est-ce qui se passe?" you gasped, shocked by this sudden mood swing. "Et bien, vous avez fait preuve de quelquechose que mon entreprise n'a pas vu depuis un peu de temps. Quelqu'un qui parle français!" answered the barman. "Comment-ça? N'est-ce pas coutume sur New-Stendel de parler français?" "Si, évidement que se l'est!" he replied, making signs with his hand to come closer. "Mais visiblement ce n'est pas la coutume de tout le monde." He pointed a table near the chimney, where a client was having a glass of wine by himself. Though lit by the fireplace, his face was covered by a cloak, making him unrecognizable. There was a red mask on the table, and a rather peculiar large scroll next to it. "Ce client est là depuis bien une semaine maintenant, mais il ne parle pas un mot de français." explained the barman. "Quelle langue parle-t-il alors?" "Anglais," he answered, and spit in a jug next to him on the floor, the slime ball resonating in the brass pot. "Et comment a-t-il commandé sa boisson?" "Il y avait Sieur Stalroc sur les lieux lors de son arrivée, et après une longue discussion avec lui, il commanda un verre de vin pour l'étranger... Mais c'est toujours son premier verre, et il est encore à moitié plain!" He had another look at the man, raising an eyebrow, before addinG: "Ce n'est pas que je ne veuille pas servir un étranger, mais il est mauvais pour le commerce. Les gens n'aiment pas quelqu'un qui ne chante pas avec eux quand ils sont un peu dans les vaps vous voyez...". You looked at the client again, intrigued, thanked and payed the barman, and slowly made you way towards the hooded figure. "Mind if I sat with you?" you asked. The stranger was a little shocked at first, but he look at you, and with a polite hand gesture, offered you a seat. the cloak shrouded his face, but he wore a long robe like pair of pants and silken belts. From one of his bracelets, you could recognize a few oriental symbols, though you didn't know what they meant. you heard a sudden drop fall onto the table, clearly coming from the cloaked face. A drop of red ooze glimmered in the fire light, crimson and gelatinous. The stranger quickly placed his hand over it, and cleaned it off with a single soft stroke, leaving the table cleaner than it was before. "Sir, pardon my rudeness, but I was wondering where you came from," you asked. The hooded figure turned towards you, slowly, and took his cloak off. What was revealed was a humanoid figure made out of red gelatin or slime, with pitch black eyes and mouth. He looked at you, perplexed. " You too are a rather special human I see. Only few have asked me anything to be honest, let alone anything about myself. Humans seem to be afraid of the unknown by nature, yet here you are asking a civilized question." He stared for a while, before saying: "I come from far away... LOST CHAPTER: Hellfire and Goo...

I hope you enjoy my writing and hope to see you soon in game. regards, xadrow - Kawaii Akuma
[justify] Hello Ladies and Gentlemen. It is with great pride that I would like to present my Citizen rank application. IRL PRESENTATION: My name is Alexandre, but people call me Alex here in England. It’s shorter and easier. Online I’m mostly known as Xadrow, or even Kawaii Akuma for the few who know me via Steam. I’ll be turning 21 in July. People clearly don’t really read through the IRL section of these presentations because I’ve been asked my origins by people who up voted my previous application, so I’ll just repeat myself : I’m Belgian, born in Antwerp, from 2 Belgian parents. I am not English, I only study in an English university. I choose to write all my official statements in English because of several reasons, some more justifiable than others; though you will rarely hear me speak English on mumble. I’m still happy that I manage to surprise some people when they hear me speak French. It amuses me to be honest. I’m nearing the end of my Engineering Degree, and my passions remain the same as about a year ago. MINEFIELD- MY ADVENTURE SO FAR: LINK TO MY PRESENTATION AFTER BECOMING A PEASANT: https://www.minefield.fr/forum/topic/53757-pr%C3%A9sentation-xadrow/?hl=xadrow LINK TO MY VILLAGER APPLICATION: https://www.minefield.fr/forum/topic/59046-accept%C3%A9-villager-application-by-xadrow-candidature-de-villageois-par-xadrow/ I‘ve been playing “properly” on Minefield for a little under a year now, and quite a few things have happened since then. From small to large, here are a few things I’ve managed to get involved in: -I was invited to join the team behind “Le Gorafield”, although I’ve not invested myself as much as some other members, I’ve made small contributions when it came to drawings or buildings. -I successfully launched my own project, Akuma Kyodai. This project took me a long time to prepare, way before I started really getting into Minefield. It turned out to be better than I expected, with a huge territory I can continuously improve on, and a surprisingly great feedback from the community, who seem to either enjoy the style or were captivated by the time and effort I put into it (you can click on the banner Icon in my signature for more info ). -I was offered a role as an Architect for the Neo-Dominion. I’ve since made plans for the rebuilt ruins of Rupture Farm, redesigned the Citadel’s Bank, have been working on redesigning the whole exterior of the Citadel, and have given my input on several other structures the alliance intend to work on. -I rebuilt and redesigned the entire city of Amaterasu, as well as help the moderation create the event that came with it. The quests were written by TheGaudis, Zovsky and myself, while the different assets were designed by the AAA. The interiors were decorated by Ymeria and myself. All the redesigns for the buildings, city layout and exterior decorations were my work. I am really proud of this project, mostly because of the time and effort I put into it. Amaterasu was an icon of Japanese architecture well before I got any interest in the building style, and I found it sad to see such a monument descend into the shadows of a bygone world. The redesign happened way before I was invited to join the Neo-Dominion, so it was a happy coincidence I would say (and for the curious people, I rebuilt it on exact measurements, all in creative, without world edit). It also happened that I was working on Akuma Kyodai at the same time, and, for the more astute people, you may find links between the lore of both projects (wink wink). I feel like to sharing a little gif from Dicsi here, it feels so appropriate: Apart from these, I’ve also been offered a house by Vimill in the “Bourg de Koturno”, I gave Kefka advice on his building style for his town Yasumi no Shima (prior to launching my own project), I won one of the top prizes during the “Novi vide ses Bourses” event, won third place in Nouvelle-Azur’s 2015 building contest and managed to get myself known, for better or for worse, as the guy who speaks English on a French server. MOTIVATIONS: So why would I like to become a Citizen (Citoyen)? Well, first off, I’ll be honest, it allows me to choose a new craft from a wider selection, which will probably be a herbalist (herboriste) or a carpenter (menuisier), I haven't completely decided as of yet. This in turn will allow me to expand my project even more than what I currently can. This choice will be added in my later RP. Secondly, I would like a better horse. This again may sound silly, but ever since I got the villager horse I’ve got issues to travel without it. Thirdly, I’d be lying if it were not for the prestige. Being a citizen would be proof that I’m a known and integrated member of society. It would mean I’d have managed to create a name for myself, and that people acknowledge my place in the community (this is under normal circumstances, I could show several examples contradicting my point). But one of the more “worthy” reasons I’d like to become a citizen is because I’d like to prove something: I’d like to prove that even if you don’t follow the norm you can still be recognized as a good person, a productive member of society, and that it is possible to succeed and have fun with people who might not speak the same language as you. My motivation comes from everyone who’s been either kind or brave enough to have even a few basic words with me in English, from older and newer players alike. I’ve been fascinated by this community, for its madness, for its skill, for its determination and for its wits. I feel that if I manage to be offered this new rank, it would serve as a message that it is possible to change people’s minds with just a few words in a foreign language. So, what if (theoretically) I was accepted as a citizen? What would be next on my agenda? Well, from that point on, I’ll be continuing my work on Akuma Kyodai and the Neo-Dominion, but I’ll be working my way up to becoming a merchant (commerçant) at some point, and, who knows, maybe build a new castle or something, add a new volcano in the Neo-Dominion desert, build a temple in honor of Aelfyr, anything could happen… I have no interest in having a house in either capital. This might change at a future date, but I’ll probably go about pursuing a new residence when I launch my Knight application. MY MOST SINCERE THANKS TO: -TheGaudis. My adventure would never have come to this point had it not been for him. I could go on and on on how he’s shaped me into the player I am today, but I’ll save that for my future applications. He’s a good friend and mentor, let’s keep it at that. -Stalroc. This man may as well be an unofficial godfather to me just as much as TheGaudis. He’s a bright man and a magnificent architect, which I strive to surpass on a daily basis. He’s also the reason I’m writing in English on the server, so you can blame him instead of me from now on. -Zovsky. On top of helping me with the write up for the quests for the Amaterasu event, Zovsky recognised my building skills and invited me to join the Neo Dominion core group. This was a large event for me, and the ties of friendship I’ve built with him thus far will not fade anytime soon. MANY THANKS TO: - All the members of the Neo-Dominion: they are a wonderful bunch of people who have a great drive and strive to show what they are capable of; - The Dwarves of Galianor: For the times we used to work together, as I still find your work was interesting and, to a certain extent, rather brilliant; - The Vampire Bund: For showing me that the Role-playing etiquette has not died yet; -The Frowin Nation, for the kind offerings you have bestowed upon me and my project; - The Moderation team. I feel not enough people thank you for the time and effort you put into all of this, from reading our applications to all the work you do in the background. If it were not for you (and Hooder in particular), I would not have been able to offer my vision of Amaterasu to the players. - Anyone who’s been reading this. Wow, you’re really dedicated aren’t you? ROLEPLAY Here comes the annoying bit for whoever is actually really interested with my RP. In this applications I will only present the section that is relevant to the actual application. However, there are quite a few parts between this “chapter” and “LOST CHAPTER: Hell Fire and Goo…”. These events can be read in the RP tavern under the thread “Tales of a Blood Slime”. I am also aware that some chapters are missing… quite a few actually. They will appear one day, I promise, but I haven’t had a lot of time to give recently when it comes to writing. https://www.minefield.fr/forum/topic/59816-tales-of-a-blood-slime/ CHAPTER 3.5: Into the Black Smoke 世話をする (*take care*) [/justify]
AKUMA KYODAI, un nouveau splash pourquoi pas?
xadrow posted a topic in La taverne (non RP)Préambule RP: [justify] Des Yokai demandent de l'aide : Akuma Kyodai est un projet situé au Sud de New Stendel, entouré par les sables désertiques de Sähbia et Khérinops d’une part et par des courants d’eau manant vers Icarus et Valmont d’autre part. Cependant, autre que la ligne de crash menant vers ces deux dernières villes, la région est mal desservie au niveau du transport, avec les splashs les plus proches étant ceux de Picbois à l’Ouest et de Kélaïre à l’Est. Je fais ce petit topic pour faire appel à la communauté de Minefield pour m’aider à financer le splash d’Akuma Kyodai. Il reliera la ville à la Capitale de NS et sera le point de départ pour plusieurs autres points de voyage à visiter sur le projet même qui ne seront que accessible via celui-ci. Le splash de base coute 10 000 Pa. Actuellement il y a déjà 4200 dans la cagnotte prêt à nourrir des piafs gourment. Il manque donc 5800 Pa. Vous me ferez remarquer qu’en effet je suis un peu sot si je crois que j’aurais cette somme plutôt faramineuse sans redonner aux gens qui soit assez généreux une petite récompense pour leurs dons. C’est pourquoi je lance en même temps la première vague d’achats de maisons sur Akuma Kyodai. Pour cette première vague il s’agit d’une petite dizaine de maisons, la majorité situé dans la banlieue sud du territoire, dans ce qui sera une des futures forêts denses prêt de la zone du palais. Ces maisons à un unique étage sont relativement petites, faisant souvent pas plus que du 9*11, mais peuvent être décorées librement et sont assez haute que pour accommoder un grenier. Un sous-sol peut aussi être discuté. Les prix varient entre 200 et 300 Pa. Pourquoi un prix aussi élevé ? Ce prix accommode pour le futur cubo de la maison, ainsi qu’une petite compensation pour le marbre blanc utilisé pour les murs (eh oui, c’est cher le marbre blanc). Cependant l’offre ne se restreint pas à quelques médiocres maisonnettes cachées dans une forêt de cerisiers (invisible pour le moment certes, mais ayez un peu d’imagination). Il y a actuellement 3 maisons dans la ville dense (marquées en bleu sur la carto ci-dessous). Ce sont des maisons très collées, de façon similaire à Alessis, qui ont une surface plus large et montent à entre 3 à 6 étages. Les trois maisons actuelles coutent entre 350 et 450 Pa. Enfin, pour un don supérieur ou égal à 500 Pa, vous recevrez une maison sur commande dans le cœur de la ville, avec entre 5 à 7 étages et de surface raisonnable. Cependant il y a un maximum pour ces maisons-là, et cette offre est valide pour 4 âmes généreuses.

IRL PRESENTATION: Hello. My name is Alexandre, but people call me Alex for short. Ingame, I’m known as Xadrow, or even Kawaii Akuma by the odd few who know me well. I’m turning 20 in July. Unlike you might think, I’m not English, but Belgian. The reason I write in English is because I’m currently studying in the UK, and my French is too rusty for my liking. My likes have evolved ever so slightly since the last time I presented myself, but not all that much: I still play video games (way too much), and I still play music, draw and I’m continuing my Engineering degree. I have, however, developed a particularly high interest in all that is Japanese Culture, from history to entertainment… okay, entertainment mainly, but I do like their history too. MINECRAFT AND MINEFIELD HISTORY: [LINK TO MY PRESENTATION AFTER BECOMING A PEASANT: https://www.minefield.fr/forum/topic/53757-pr%C3%A9sentation-xadrow/?hl=xadrow] I’ve been playing Minecraft for almost 4 years now. I’ve often visited Minefield, and I’m one of the main helpers of the Keysington project on Nabes [https://www.minefield.fr/forum/topic/54696-accept%C3%A9-keysington/?hl=keysington]. On top of this, I've helped in Kelaire and I've been asked to help design the Kutzenbach manor. I’d like to eventually build my own little town, as well as show my skills on the server. I specialize in Asian styled builds, but I’m a rather versatile builder, and I follow instructions well. Here are some screenshots of my work on another server and in singleplayer minefield: MOTIVATIONS The main reason I’d like to become a villager (villageois) is because I really don’t like Questing, and without a job I can’t get any real form of revenue, so my pockets are emptying rapidly. Although Questing is a big thing on Minefield,I don't enjoy it, and I’d like to get a few Silver Coins to set up my projects, maybe attend a few more events and such. Although this rank would be more of prestige than of use, I'd like to get more involved in the community, and a rank up might help with this. Finally, I was peer pressured into it by quite a few friends (mainly TheGaudis). If I was accepted as a villager (villageois), I would like to be a Lumberjack (bûcheron). ROLEPLAY (note: this section is slightly longer than what is asked for, but I couldn't fit the thing in just 25 lines. Also, originally it was over 60 lines, so I did a LOT of editing) Lost chapter: Hell Fire and goo… Wh… Where am I? What are these sounds whaling in my ears, cries for help? All I can see is fire and ash in a crimson sky, as two roaring beasts clash with claws and teeth, shredding skin and limbs. The smoke burned my eyes as the gust created by the two behemoths blew towards me, corroding and burning all in its path… I was born in this world of war, bloodshed and the slaughter of thousands of Yōkai fighting for a trivial sister’s feud… The next thing I remember was waking up in a devastated and ruined city, where all had turned black from the fires during the night. The bodies of countless lives that had been lost in the conflict, burned to a crisp, lay before my eyes in a horrific display of the cruelty of the world. Suddenly, an old man, barely capable of walking, slowly made his way through the street, clearly horrified and on the brim of falling in tears at what had become of the city. As he came closer, he noticed me, and looked at me, quite intrigued by my presence, and, as I would discover later, my mere existence. The old man lifted me up, and held me up in one hand. At this point I realized that I was but the size of a mouse, and I felt sliding through his fingers, like if my body wasn't solid. I fell, but his second hand caught me before I hit the ground. “There there little guy,” the man said, with a reassuring voice. “Everything is going to be alright. Yare yare, what a mess this place is.” I could hear the tears in his voice, as he looked onto what remained of a former food cart near a shop. He sighed. And slowly moved his hand up to his shoulder for me to sit on it, then slowly started making his way towards the Sakura Forest. … My new found father’s name was Akumajin. He told me the tale of the Yōkai Sisters, who caused the bloodshed and destruction. As the years passed, my father seemed to enjoy having more and more serious talks with me, about sciences and literature. However, I noticed that in all the references on Yōkai history, in all the books and scrolls, very little to no information existed concerning my origins. It would take me another few years for me to ask: “Oto-san, what am I?” My father looked at me, deep into my eyes, telling me without any words that I was, indeed, an unusual creature, even for the Yōkai. It was a dreaded question, which my father had anticipated, but had hoped never to have to answer. “From what I've gathered over the years, I believe you are a Slime. Slimes are a rare breed for this time and age, most of them died out during the wars before the Age of Peace.” This information alone was rather sad. Though I wasn't alone, I was rare around here. I slowly felt like the weight of judgement had been dropped onto me from the heavens, and I fell into the darkest of places I had been since my birth. “Hey,” my father said. “Don't worry. I'm sure there are more of your kind out there, you just need to find them. If you feel like you're failing or lost, Don’t believe in yourself, believe in the me that believes in you, and you'll manage to find your path.” He patted me on the head, and I felt his warmth pulling me out of the darkness. I wasn't alone, and I was the son of Akumajin, the old man in the Mori Shrine. He looked towards the horizon. The Sakura trees were in blossom, spring had arrived. With a small pat on my back, he stood up, and slowly walked towards the altar. “You know what; I think I might have a mission for you.” He picked up two large scrolls, which he then gave to me. They were heavy, and were probably about a meter wide. “When the time is right, head towards the west, where you will look for Hikari and Yami, the Yōkai sisters. Give them these scrolls, and make them understand that I gave these in person. They might not like this, and you might get into trouble with them, but I hope they’ll understand… From what I have heard, they are currently still fighting in the plains of Shin-Stenderu (tr: New Stendel)… or something like that.” I looked at him, and saw hope in his eyes. From there on, it wasn't long before I took my best hakama, my bokken and the scrolls, setting off towards the west, following the request of my father, and seeking out the Sisters. My journey had just begun, yet I felt like it had already started years ago. I would later come to realize that my “childhood” years would turn out to be the best, but that, is a tale I’ll tell on another occasion... 世話をする (*take care*) Merci d’avoir eut le courage de lire jusqu’ici et merci de votre temps.
