  1. I guess I am more wondering if there's a connection between the various structures. For example, is there a function to there being 1024 pillars and 1024 Arks and Ark cities?
  2. I ended up giving Prince of Thorns a second chance a couple of years ago and since then I've plowed through all 15 books. The Girl and the Moon was definitely a great wrap-up of the cycle as well as of its own trilogy. I enjoyed the Book of the Ice more than the Book of the Ancestor (which I also bounced off the first time) but I just finished a re-read of the latter to refresh myself on the connections and it gained a few points on the scale. The only annoying part about it being the end is that I am left with too many unanswered questions about the world! Has anyone seen an attempted timeline of how long passes between the end of the Broken Empire/Red Queen's War era and the migrations to Abeth? Why did the Missing build 1024 pillars, 1024 Arks, etc? The number comes up a lot. What happens between the two migrations from Earth to split humanity into four very distinct tribes? Clearly, we're not meant to get everything explained, but that doesn't mean those questions won't bug me for a long while. Also, a spoilery one for the Girl and the Moon:
  3. The main thing to know about henna is that real henna gives some shade of orange/red and nothing else. You can mix with some other plant powders to push it towards shades of brown, even getting it to a quite dark brown with indigo, but the henna itself only contains reddish colour.
  4. I have been using henna for years with (I think!) good results. I am covering quite a lot of grey these days as well, and it works on that too. The key is having a good henna and using the right process for dye release. The henna powder needs to be fresh or frozen while fresh. Dye release is okay-ish with just water (cold, not warm) left for 12-24 hours depending on climate. Something acidic in the liquid is better, I usually use some apple cider vinegar. Lemon works too but can be harsher on the hair and scalp. With good dye release, having it on for 2-3 hours is usually about right. This site is a very good resource for everything to do with henna and how to dye your hair with it: http://www.hennaforhair.com/
  5. Our concern with D) is that opt-in likely won't get that many responses, but if we can find an easy system we may give it a try.
  6. Hello everyone! This message was also sent out to those of you who have an active email registered with the game. With a new year just around the corner, we're looking at changing a few things up on the game, and we'd like to find the best way to communicate to our players about news and upcoming events. We understand that MUSHing today is very different from 10 years ago, with fewer and fewer people having the opportunity to stay logged in for long periods to catch scenes. Given this, we want to find out how we can ensure that at least planned events/scenes reach as many people as possible. If you could take the time to respond to this quick poll, it would be greatly appreciated! I would like to learn about news and events from: A) The game's webpage (https://www.westeros.org/BoD/Announcements) The game's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/BloodOfDragonsMUSH/) C) The game's subforum (https://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/forum/16-blood-of-dragons-mush/) D) Via a mailing list (either all registered players or opt-in) E) Other (please describe your suggestion) Thank you and happy new year! Nymeria & Balerion

  8. Address: bod.westeros.org: 3000 Guest Client: http://www.westeros.org/BoD/Client/ Webpage: http://www.westeros.org/BoD/ Forum: http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/forum/16-blood-of-dragons-mush/ Current/Upcoming: King Baelor and much of the court has just returned from Sunspear and the wedding of Prince Daeron to Princess Mariah. We have now entered the last year of Baelor's reign. Blood of Dragons is set in the low-magic, medieval-inspired fantasy world of George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" (and HBO's "Game of Thrones", though the game is strictly based on book canon). The game is the only MUSH operated with the approval of George R.R. Martin, together with whom the game's owners also co-authored "The World of Ice and Fire". The game takes place 140 years prior to the start of the first book, "A Game of Thrones". King Baelor I Targaryen still sits the Iron Throne, with his uncle Viserys doing what he can to manage the king's increasingly erratic behaviour and see to that the realm is properly governed. In Dorne, Prince Marence -- who never recovered fully from being poisoned -- has abdicted in favour of his son, Prince Maron. The new young ruler is immediately tested as the Iron Bank comes to Dorne on the hunt for a man who defrauded them. This choice of time period allows players to explore a less defined period in the history of Westeros while still experiencing how past events referenced in the books may have played out. The roleplay is focused on the political and social interactions at the courts of King's Landing and Sunspear, with players taking up characters from various noble households. Players have a choice between CGing a character themselves or taking up a previously played, fully pre-generated role. Choose the latter option and you can often be ready to roleplay within minutes. Blood of Dragons is focused on offering high-quality roleplay in a rich, immersive setting with a strong sense of history and continuity. A key ambition of the game is to stay as true as possible to the world-building of George R.R. Martin and in doing so offering an authentic experience of Westeros in the time of the Targaryen kings.
  9. This topic is for reposting upcoming events from the in-game Events calendar. The referenced "game time" is GMT-6 / CST. Old events are deleted from the topic semi-regularly.
  10. On the game +cdb/wanted will list the currently most suggested characters. We'll occasionally try to post a sample of where it stands at here in the forums. If you are a prospective player and none of the wanted characters appeal to you, or if you are a current player who would like to see a particular character in play, please post to this topic as well. Prospective players interested in PC family members can post here and ask if anyone wants to recruit them for their family. A good idea is to post some general ideas for the kind of character and concept one is interested in. Current players can recruit for family member, characters otherwise connected to their character or just characters they would like to see in play. Keep in mind that these character suggestions may not have been cleared with the Admin and are not guaranteed to be suitable. NOTE: If you post a recruiting message for a specific character, try to remember to remove it if someone takes up the character.
  11. Curious about the MUSH? Use our convenient browser-based login to try out the game: http://www.westeros.org/BoD/Client/ The above link will log you into the game as a guest, which means you can ask questions on the Guest channel, browse the CDB (character database) and check out if the game seems interesting to you! If you experience any trouble logging in or if you have any other questions relating to trying out the game or getting started on the game, ask them here!
  12. Hi everyone, I think you have all noticed that we have hit a slow period following the summer and the Dorne plot. We have also ended up being more absent than we expected thanks a couple of short-notice trips. In any case, now we need to look at what we want to do during the rest of the autumn on the game, and perhaps even plan as far ahead as next year since time seems to fly. We are in the last year of Baelor's reign, so we have a few little canon events to work in, but much of that is background material rather than something that offers a lot for PCs to do. So that is where we need your suggestions! Please give some thought to what you would like to see on the game. It could be specific plot ideas or more general thoughts about types of roleplay you would like us to facilitate. A constant issue for any game is new player recruiting & retention, so if you have any thoughts on that, do add those as well. You can also submit your thoughts and suggestions via +jobs or via email to [email protected] but we thought it might be handy with a topic here on the forums for discussing ideas as well.

    That the message regarding ad blockers shows up is intended. However, it should not be showing up if you have whitelisted the site as the first poster reported. If you haven't whitelisted the site, then it will show up.
