As we all know, RoB killed off any and all vyre rp. Now, while the majority of people are looking at how Vyre rp is dead, I look at the shockwave. Many characters' plots revolve around the idea that Vyres are scary and powerful. These groups are the Myreque. These groups are the For**. So, I make the following proposition:

Timescale the quest to the 6th age.

This way, characters' stories are not ruined. This way, characters' stories need not be voided. I now as all of you, vote on this. The fate of Morytanian RP rests on this.

It didn't kill rp, it made it better IMO.

Werewolf rp is completely unaffected besides the fact that they have more freedom now, humans can now safely travel to and from Morytania, ex-vyres can now adjust to human life (again), and not all vyres have to willingly go through with the transformation.

That's not the point of this post. The point of this post is to discuss whether or not to timescale the quest to the 6th age.

We could scale it to 6th age but it's not so we shouldn't. It doesn't really affect /that/ much if it's a fifth age quest. At most people just have to make a few minor retcons to conversations, but not that much has gone on in morytania that would be impacted by the quest.

I'm in favor for it, but then I'm probably going to do it anyway for my own characters. Some minor changes here and there to adjust for those who don't want to. It's no big deal. I'm looking forward to how the world and community reacts to the consequences of the events of the quest. "Ptolemos, the friendly, informative Mahjarrat."

To address this issue, the 'Foryx' have always considered all of the Myreque quests to be in the 6th Age, simply because we had no idea what would happen so we were left with two options:

1: Scale the roleplays back to the 5th age and potentially void literal years of roleplay

2: Or scale everything to the Sixth Age taking some creative liberties as to why Saradomin and the other gods didn't get involved (essentially saying that they didn't want another cataclysmic event like the Battle of Lumbridge.

In my opinion, Vampyre roleplay has been drastically changed, but saying that the quest has destroyed everything is simply giving up. That being said, I'm as happy about the changes as most of the Vampyre community is. However, with some work I believe we can have some good roleplays regarding the reaction to this new leadership and the new Vampyric society.

Just the 'Foryx' thoughts.

I don't think it's killed vampyre roleplay at all, only changed it. We already knew that the quest was going to take place in the 5th age, and would change things accordingly without rapidly changing events that have already transpired in the 6th age. Lots of Mory roleplay has been centered about power struggles, at least in the public realm, that shouldn't have happened anyways because they simply don't make sense.

All that really needs to be done, is amending events in your characters backstory and roleplay history to concern what transpired in River of Blood. Not that big of a deal in my opinion.

I agree that this should be considered Sixth Age in W42 canon, and I've thought it should be that way since LoV was announced.

But this is a big change, not a death. Morytania needed to evolve somehow, and this will be an interesting change.
The purpose of life is finding the largest burden that you can bear and then indeed bearing it.

Half my vyre's entire story was based around regretting vampyrism, and his entire story was fighting other vampyres to let humans have safe travel, well in to the Sixth age. This lore negates him entirely. The True Asgarnia -

I don't see how it is death, just timescale it to being 5th age, and now start over fresh, it isn't dead at all, Vyres are still scary, ppl will still see them scary, the sixth age didn't happen over 100 years later, so they would still be scarey and untrustworthy, most Vyres would still be mean to human, some would consider being the same nature they had (which would result on vampyre hunters) But ROB didn't kill it, it just made it hard for vampyres to have said "ok zammy is back" when everything was in the 5th age. over all keep it in the 5th age, and just think of something new.

Over all i seen rp of vampyres be mostly "oh human? Hi yes, now insult me I will punish you." In Morty, Vampyres would be the rich class, while humans be the poor pretty much. So really nothing changed drastically, like I said, it just made things time scaled in being 5th age, Vampyres can still mean, scary so nothing really changed.....
