Historical View: The Great Orpik Corpse Event

Part 1: The Setup

Rincewind had pked Orpik. A short time later, he joined the Nashite Magi. This caused an uproar among nashites, as it effectively put him out of reach. Totec, also a member of the Magi, grouped with Rincewind then watched a mob kill him without helping. He then took the corpse - and logged out.

Part 2: The High Council's response

[ 15] Dundrave: Rincewind - Orpik and Totec
Sun Sep 7 17:17:48 2008
To: all
I have betrayed by a fellow follower once, that is why I left the blue cause, to join a following with Honor
It disappoints me that a fellow Nashite would bring HARM to another Nashite, disregarding the Ancient Laws of Nash.
If Isolas ordered his Ordained to take a corpse of a follower for discipline reasons, then please disregard the rest of this note.
While I disagreed with Isolas's choice to allow Rincewind to worship, it was his choice.
If the corpse of Rincewind is not returned, I will personally issue a vote by the High Council of the Black Conclave of Nashite to petition the powers to be, to remove any false worshipers of Lord Nash, including Isolas himself.
Lord Nash does not need worshipers who know not the meaning of what it is to be a NASHITE.
The ultimate decision will be in the Arch Lich's hands.
The decision may very well be forced though, as Tynian has set a precedent of returning corpses when betrayed by their own followers before.
Rincewind killed Orpik. Orpik's corpse is Rincewind's to do as he pleases.
If the all the above comes to pass, there will be no quarter for those who have soiled and profaned upon the Name of Lord Nash.
Dundrave,Blood Zealot, Minion of the Arch-Lich

[ 11] Totec: Mea maxima culpa
Sat Jan 9 21:43:44 2010
To: all
This is quite a monologue. Consider yourself warned.

I have left and returned to this world many iterations. The time I spend away seems to grow each time, but it's hard to forget a place where I have spent thousands of hours of my real life since 1996.

I blame Corri for my latest resurfacing. After a continual stream of updates on her adventures and her genuine kindness both OOC and IC, I let the white-washed memories of TFC lure me back for a login.

At first, all is well:
1) Grand Master Shaman, decent base stats. Check.
2) Thunderclap for golding/random hunting. Check.
3) A warm greeting from mainstay immortals and mortals alike. Check.

Six hours of golding and equipment hunting later...

I'm following around two good OM's, hanging out, cloaking them and what not when Sam decides to charm me and mob kill me with a dragon worshipper. Sam then proceeds to loot items and gold from my corpse. I haven't even attempted a steal, kill, or loot myself in the short time I've been around after a year hiatus. I have to say, I was surprised.

After coming out of my stupor and then anger for having wasted 6 hours of my time here only to be slain without provocation by a paladin, I had an epiphany -
I've changed. I am guilty for what Sam did. I've led multiple campaigns to pervert good alignment, have condoned and encouraged kills of betrayal, and on many occasions have been a nuisance. Sure, I can hide behind roleplay or "it's a game" as an excuse for my behavior, but the reality is that I truly had no regard for the real investment we each put into our virtual selves. I've been a jerk.

To what few of you remain, I am sorry. For those I had part in driving off, it is only fitting that I be welcomed with such disregard as Sam has shown me. As a player and a person, that treatment is what I deserve for years of transgressions against any decency and sportsmanship; not the kindness Corri, Darkclaw, Isolas, and others have always shown me.

I leave behind my disdain.

Whenever it is in my capacity to do good, I will strive to do so. I will buy organic groceries, demand of our producers responsibly manufactured goods and services, donate often, and reduce my resource consumption. And when I play games, I will strive to exemplify good sportsmanship, help others, and manifest by proxy whatever in me is civil and kind.

I don't know to what extent I will play again, if at all. But thank you, Sam, for indirectly coaxing out of me apologies long overdue.

  • Totec was one of those listed by Corri as being someone she would like involved with her Triat Mastery Quest in a conversation the Initiate has with Cordir.
  • Totec is mentioned in the history of Corri.

Wolves and Sheep
[Chosen of Fate Board 17] Arcanum: Totec, wolf in sheep's clothing
Tue Nov 14 22:36:36 2006
To followers of: Cordir
Totec says (common), ' Kill Arcanum, he denies me bread'.
Now, I was actually buyign some bread so he didn't have to leave guild and fall into Paython and Waylin's trap, I didn't have any on me at the time. I thought we were supposed to be allies with these people. Until I see further proof that this was just a "accident" which I am sure that will be that claim I will not aid any Magi. I apologize if this creates bad karma but I don't like allies telling enemies to kill me, doesn't sit right.
Arcanum Dra'sai, Chosen Defender of Fate.

Scorpion and Frog
Background: Totec had dragged Corri down into the cell of torment in the River of Despair. Totec had been pked a few days previously and the pker gave Corri Totec's Red Dragon eye (light).

Totec says (in common), 'In a moment of physical weakness'.
Totec says (in common), 'In a precarious situation'.

Corri nods simply, acknowledging the exact truth of the words.

Totec says (in common), 'Listen here, sancha, I'm at a loss'.
Totec says (in common), 'You hang out with scorpions'.

Personal Timeline:

07/22/2006: Totec is created.
06/18/2007: [ 16] Totec: player file wipe / Sun Jun 17 22:22:35 2007 / To: all / Hegemons will be hegemons. We pwn you.
04/20/2007: Totec invites Myst over gossip to portal to him, utilizing a wizmark she had placed there previously. Myst tells Sarai, whom she is exp'ing with, to rest, and portals. Combat is engaged - and Sarai, who failed to rest, is involved in the conflict as an aggressor, when Myst attacks. As a result of the conflict with an Ally, Cordir slays Sarai, has the Chosen of Fate member name her three most valuable items, and orders them to be given to Isolas as reparation, along with a personal apology to Isolas, Totec, and a public note to All.
07/11/2007: [ 19] Totec: re: Mish and fines / Wed Jul 11 04:14:38 2007 / To: all / Avangeline. Nuff said.
07/12/2007: [ 23] Totec: re: mish ID / Thu Jul 12 01:59:27 2007 / To: all / I believe very strongly in the RP aspect of TFC. That being said, you want me to believe Mish has ties with Guido, Merrick, AND Avangeline?! It is so obvious this isn't realistic in our fantasy context. You may as well put space aliens from Stargate and explosive ammunition into the game. Way to suggest something to totally ruin the integrity of TFC. I pwn you all.
07/15/2007: [ 27] Totec: Re: Cadee / Sat Jul 14 02:07:20 2007 / To: all / As the thread moderator, I am banning bards from further participating in the discussion of Mish's services. Please ignore any song-like banter on this subject.
