Goddess like Lusternia's Lisaera?

I love that immortal! I'm tempted to go back to Lusternia just to soak in the Lisaera lore and energy... but I won't. Any other muds have an immortal like her?

I love this: (ignore the links)

"
Mysterious and changeable, Lisaera exhibits a threefold nature that is
reflected in Her varying Manifestations, much like Her awakened Moon Spirit.
Walking also in the garb of all Seasons, She is of the mind that there is a
time for everything in the natural course of awareness: life and death, light
and darkness, joy and sorrow, aggression and peace, and that the wise would
endure and learn to rise from all circumstances.

Tending towards the spiritual and magical facets of nature, She is also fond
of rituals and often harnesses the powers of the elements for Her own uses.

Her symbol is a silver chalice wreathed in ethereal vines."

If you like religious roleplay and good sound descriptive Gods/Goddesses, I would give Threshold a try. They have one of the best religious setups I've seen.

Muds that require payment are out of the question, thanks though.

But if Threshold has "one of the best religious setups" you've seen, then you must've seen others? Which muds were those?

Within the last 8mths or so, the required registration/payment for ThresholdRPG has been removed. You are actually free to play it without being forced to contribute.

Re: Goddess like Lusternia's Lisaera?

I don't recall Threshold ever being required pay to play. Just a registration fee or upgrade type fees which were always voluntary and reasonable.

Anyhoo,

I'm seeking out those other Muds, but the three I remembered are now defunct. You have to know this was years and years ago. Currently, I'd say Threshold has the best descriptive and variety of religion if that is what you like.

There are religions and gods in NW, but I'm not telling you about them, you have to be in the game to find out ;-P

Threshold does not require payment. We have an optional "pay for perks" model, but character advancement and development are not connected to it. You do not need credits to train skills or advance levels. You can reach the maximum level, train every skill, join any guild (class), etc. without needing a single ThreshCredit.

And the religion system is probably one of the most robust systems of the game. You can read about the deities here:

Journey Beyond the Threshold!

Check it out.

But correct me if I am wrong, isnt joining a religion one of those perks that you have still to pay for? The last time I played Threshold was just as everything was going free.

However I have to agree, Thresholds religion and the changes in it are very detailed (Aetherial Shift if my memory serves sounded like an interesting time to play) and if religion is now a freebie definitly worth a look-see for the OP.

Re: Goddess like Lusternia's Lisaera?

I'm currently checking it out, and so far I'm impressed (in character creation phase still, though). I just wish the deities which no longer exist (Vivoria, Calpyso, Chronos, Kylamane) were still present. There would've been more diversity that way... instead of the basic deities. I understand if you had to cut them back because of lack of funding though... someone obviously has to play them and perhaps since economy is bad you don't have the resources for extravagances.

Actually, they got cut several years ago to try to balance the game out more. Having a goddess of magic and luck in one made almost every thief and mage go there. That made it incredibly difficult to balance out the other religions. Since Threshold's main conflicts follow around a religious theme, having an inherently overpowered religion made it very difficult for other religions. Chronos was Calypso's direct opposite. She was the goddess of Fate which opposed luck. Vivoria had the same problem as Calypso since she was the goddess of life.

Kylamane's religion is actually now stronger than when she was an actual goddess. She has a very devout following with several players. I can't really give their stuff away, but you might be interested in checking it out.

Sorry for the delayed reply. It's been busy!

Violette,

I'm glad you gave it a try. They are definately my fav when it comes to religious variance and style. It can be an interesting game, just make sure you give it a few weeks for immersion into the environment and I'm sure you will enjoy your stay.

Good Luck!
