Rebirth

Post  Pishkirlin on Wed Mar 17, 2010 10:57 pm

Use this thread to post screenshots of the greenies you have hired.
You'll get 5 sangreazuls (up to 25) for each one of them if they don't leave the flag and don't go dormant after 10 days. If they will become officers (with at least Broad experience in the duty puzzles and Proficient bnav) before April 23, you'll get 20 additional sangrazul for each new officer.
Even if you can only get 25 azuls in the first stage, the best strategy is hiring as many greenies as possible, because you never know who can go dormant, leave the flag or become an officer. This mini-mission can award up to 175 sangreazuls, if you hire Mortesecca, guess who he is and train 5 greenies.

I would like to remind everyone that there is a riddle in the current statement of the Blades of Ascalon:
And when the good omens appeared in to the sky, the White Fers, who first prophesied, regained his powers and came back to the Realm disguised in green.
And he descended from the Kingdom of Eternal Light and Glory and his soul abandoned its volatile form and reincarnated into a body that the Flame cannot consume.
For the the day of wrath has come.
And the Black Knight, the Great Thief, stood in the midst of the White Pawns.
And I heard the Nation singing: "Sorkhi-ye to az man; Zardi-ye man az to."
And I saw the White Fers bringing back what the Knight stole so that the Pil could forge anew the sacred sword with all his craftmanship.
And the Dragon left Sicily.
And I saw the Blades piercing the flanks of their foes
And this, I, Rastaban beheld.
Who can find the solution to the most clues and solve it?

Ok, some thoughts to get it started...

And when the good omens appeared in to the sky
Pish's portrait? xD

the White Fers, who first prophesied, regained his powers and came back to the Realm disguised in green.
Mortesecca -> the green knight -> Whitefers! Our JC from yesterday. (he was a greenie, no offense, Sir... lol)

abandoned its volatile form and reincarnated into a body that the Flame cannot consume.
This is probably who we are looking for, the new body Morte is using. The all consuming flame is the flag of Azarbad... who could be the only one that the flame cannot consume?

For the the day of wrath has come.

:S

And the Black Knight, the Great Thief, stood in the midst of the White Pawns.
This just made me think of Azarbad when yesterday stood among us "white knights" lol.

And I heard the Nation singing: "Sorkhi-ye to az man; Zardi-ye man az to."
That's from the Iranian fire festival, they sing it while jumping over a bonfire and it means: "Give me your beautiful red color; And take back my sickly pallor!" And it made me think about the thing Azarbad stole from us a while ago and we needed to get back and never did lol.

And I saw the Blades piercing the flanks of their foes
That just made me think of yesterday in the blockade lol.

Ok, those are my first thoughts, just to post something now lol :S

Mortesecca the Green can finally regain his powers, but we have to find him first. He promised he would have come back as a greenie, so we have to look among them.
Blackseagull, in the other thread wrote:

I hired the green knight under your noses.

Congratulations, Princess Blackseagull!

This definetly refers to when Azarbad shouted something about wrath and doom.


Azarbad shouts, "The roar of flames! The clatter of steel! ZOMG! Azarbad the Great is upon you!"

And I saw the White Fers bringing back what the Knight stole so that the Pil could forge anew the sacred sword with all his craftmanship.
I don't recall Whitefers bringing anything back from Azarbad.

It would be too easy if it were taken literally and I had traded with Azarbad at some point in full visibility of a flaggie, now wouldn't it?

Instead, I'll posit that the White Fers recovering that which was lost refers to the previous mission (as Blackie noted) and perhaps has something to do with that green trinket. After all, in this thread, Azarbad wrote,

Azarbad the Great wrote:"Don't worry, Mistress. He can't regain his power as long as I am in possession of this green trinket."

Depending on how you read it, this part:

Pishkirlin wrote:...the White Fers, who first prophesied, regained his powers and came back to the Realm disguised in green.
And he descended from the Kingdom of Eternal Light and Glory and his soul abandoned its volatile form and reincarnated into a body that the Flame cannot consume.

may mean the White Fers, not Mortesecca, was reincarnated into a body that cannot be destroyed by Azarbad. When combined with his greenie status and the account name, he is definitely disguised in green. Further, when added to:
Pishkirlin wrote:For the the day of wrath has come.
...and...
And I saw the Blades piercing the flanks of their foes

we may be in for a battle with Azarbad. I don't know if it is specifically in reference to the blockade but it could also reference the Knights taking up arms for war (as when we switch for a blockade or probably war to Blades of Ascalon to fight).

And I saw the White Fers bringing back what the Knight stole so that the Pil could forge anew the sacred sword with all his craftmanship.

The trinket makes sense for the forging of a green-hilted sword to be used against a specific evil as in the old stories. A long sword is traditional in the European tales but a curved blade would be more appropriate for Azarbad and Ascalon traditions.

Did anyone notice if Whitefers had a trinket?

The account name and password for Whitefers are also interesting, but Pish will have to weigh in on if I am supposed to share as I won't share account information without permission. I could share the translation instead of the exact details as well. Pish?

I have merged the posts about Whitefers in the Nowruz thread here because this is the right place. I couldn't make my first post here because otherwise it would have been obvious that the statement was a reference to Rebirth. Now Blackseagull has solved the mystery, we can continue here.

Yes, Blackie already pointed this out.

I think this is a metaphor, re-read what...

and think of how the BK hunt event is called. Wink

Aye, aye... Blackie hinted at this as well. But I believe this sentence hides anyway more clues.
The trinket makes sense for the forging of a green-hilted sword to be used against a specific evil as in the old stories. A long sword is traditional in the European tales but a curved blade would be more appropriate for Azarbad and Ascalon traditions.
We already know that Ascalon was a falchion from Richard Johnson. But this is not the point, although I believe one of the clue that has not been solved yet has something to do with forging the sword.

The account name and password for Whitefers are also interesting, but Pish will have to weigh in on if I am supposed to share as I won't share account information without permission. I could share the translation instead of the exact details as well. Pish?
Go for it, I don't mind sharing the details.

We know the GK visited Ascalon a couple of days before the blockade as Malamati during a GP led by Azeitona (he failed to recognize him and didn't recruited him though). I am wondering now why he chose to come back as Whitefers this time.

This is a late post, but I assume this thing is still on since no solution has been found.

This leads to the question: What was it he was blamed for?

Taking in account that he was blamed for something, "White" may refer to pureness and innosence. He was once blamed, but now he is "white".

Riddle wrote:The dragon leaves Sicilly
The history geek inside me immediatley thinks about the Normans in sicilly. The Normans where former vikings and vikings used "Dragon Ships". "The dragon leaves Sicilly" could mean a Longship leaving some island.
But this is probably irrelevant and nowhere near the solution.

Apparently the Royal Encyclopedia of Ascalon has an entry about it.
This passage is particularly interesting:
"the Malāmatīs deliberately tried to draw the contempt of the world upon themselves by committing unseemly, even unlawful, actions, but they preserved perfect purity of thought and loved God without second thought"
Now that would explain once for all Mortesecca's dark side.
"White" may refer to pureness and innosence. He was once blamed, but now he is "white".
5 Somehow that must be true.

My memory may be rusty, but even when browsing through our archives on the Theft of the Privy Purse, I fail to see a dark side of Mortesecca. Unless you count alcohol intoxication and yelling as evil. (in wich case I assume Azeitona and Our highness Pishkirling would be dark as lucifer himself Razz)

What did he do to redeem himself? I am sure whatever he did was of vital importance to the flag.

Well yes, I meant that and other dark aspects of his character and life:
Yppedia wrote:Fond of natural sciences, he became a member of a local academy. However due to his morbid interest for human corpses and black magic, in 1981 he was banned from that academy.
Wich leaves the question: what did he do to redeem himself? I am sure whatever he did was of vital importance to the flag.
I don't think it is matter of redemption. Like Al-Khader himself, his behaviour can be sometimes considered morally controversial but it actually follows a greater, divine scheme. It is like being dark is part of his own essence somehow. Black and white are part of the same design.
