Some NPC Clarifications



A recently question prompted us to clarify a few things regarding pNPCs (and in turn, cNPCs), so we wanted to share these clarifications with you guys.


Namely, creature NPCs -- that is, all non-canine/non-Canis species NPCs -- do not count towards pNPC or cNPC limits unless they are Canis-species ghosts.


Played canine ghost characters have always been, and will continue to be, titled as Creatures, regardless of species, but if they are a pack or another character's NPC, then they do count for the limits imposed on those NPC types. Hope that makes sense!


Dalimil Arrives at Outpost



Dalimil Kovachev has arrived at the Outpost again with five new horses for trade. See the next post for details!

Horse Requests


The Outpost trader Dalimil has come to 'Souls this month. She has horses for offer:


  • Gelding, bay. Spirited and obedient.
  • Mare, blue roan. Loyal and obedient.
  • Mare, chestnut. Reliable and calm, cart trained (more valuable).
  • Gelding, chestnut. Loyal and obedient.
  • Stallion available for STUD only: Milos, gray. Milos is a very large example of a Svantevit horse, one of the largest owned by the pack. His impressive size makes him an ideal stud for some, though small mares undergo a risky endeavor. He is a gray, rare amongst the Svantevit horses and rarer still amongst stallions chosen to stud.
    • Fern (Vesper)
    • Blanche (Salvia)
    • Stud opportunity (Saul)

Request Rules


  • Requests are NOT A GUARANTEE of approval. The 'SA approves or denies these requests based on the application received and in the order of applications received. Don't assume your horse is owned until you receive a PM confirming the claim.
  • Packs may request horses for communal stores. Pack claims, however, are considered after player claims. We usually give 1-2 weeks for claims to be made, after which time we consider any claims made by packs.
  • Your character may claim a horse if they already have a horse companion. Like pack claims, however, these claims are considered after those who already have a horse.
  • Keep in mind the typical description of a Svantevit horse.
  • The horses are offered as is -- changing genders, descriptions, personalities, etc. is not permitted.

Request


Please reply here with your request. Even if all the horses have already been requested, it is worthwhile to post anyway: someone else's request may not be approved.

Accepted Trades


The following are some examples of trades that might be accepted for the horses to give players an idea of what might be accepted for a Svantevit horse. This shouldn't be used as an exact guideline: we'll obviously accept other items! However, keep in mind the approximate value of each of these items when formulating your trade:


  • Stud opportunity: Well-made saddle, ten smoked fish
  • Stud opportunity: Well-made saddle, five horse blankets
  • Standard horse: Well-made saddle, three bottles of alcohol, twenty smoked fish, and five horse blankets
  • Standard horse: Trained Luperci slave/servant
  • Extra trained horse: Five scavenged human books on useful subject (e.g., not a novel/fiction)
  • Extra trained horse: Well made saddle and bridle, five bottles of alcohol, thirty smoked fish, and seven horse blankets
  • Extra trained horse: Scavenged human sword, 30 arrows, a book on native plants

Character Name: Wayne McCoy (though foal will be property of CdC)
Mare Name: Fern
Link to Horse Information (if available): clicky
What is your character offering in exchange?: Well-made saddle, about two deer's worth of dried jerky, two tanned deer pelts, and well-made medium-sized leather carrying bag.
Describe Projected Foal (25 - 100 words): A colt blessed with superior size, inherited both from his draft mother and destrier father. He will be a rich chestnut color at birth, but his father's grey genes will turn him pure white within a few years. As a stallion, he will be unusually mild-mannered, a combination of the even-tempered Svantevit standard and his mother's extremely gentle demeanor. He will be ideal for a working, cart-pulling horse though too gentle to be ridden into battle.

Character Name: Salvia Eternity (for Salsola)
Mare Name: Blanche
Link to Horse Information (if available): details.
What is your character offering in exchange?: One sword, three reindeer pelts, x2 jars of whale oil and tarrow, small bag of dried herbs (sage + chives)
Describe Projected Foal (25 - 100 words): An impressive colt, one clearly taking the best parts of his parents. Born gray like his father, he will bleach quickly to pure white. As an adult, he will be gelded and used specifically for heavy labor within the pack. It is unlikely he will be used for riding, in order to keep his back strong for the hauling and dragging of fallen trees and other heavy objects.

I got one of these last time, so please feel free to deny this! But its been a good while and nobody requested the last stud slot, so here goes!

Character Name: Saul (for Vinátta)
Mare Name: Signe
Link to Horse Information (if available): First horse listed
What is your character offering in exchange?: 10 hand-carved wooden bowls, 2 books (one on fishing, one on "handcrafts"), 5 blankets and a full elk worth of dried meat.
Describe Projected Foal (25 - 100 words): http://25.media.tumblr.com/41c4e0974c37 ... 1_1280.jpg While born a very dark grey, almost black at the beginning, the colt will lighten to a more fleabitten grey in his later years. A headstrong colt who doesnt know his own size, he can be quite clumsy. Despite this, his fathers even temperament and his mothers hard working personality will begin to affect the colt around three years of age and he will calm down into a more stable creature.

Note: With the Outpost, dates that you OOCly post your request don't really matter. You shouldn't post a request in an old horse trader topic once a newer one is up, but as long as there are open slots, players can apply. It's up to you guys to backdate your threads around the time Dali was at the Outpost. c:
