    It's Ascension Time!

    [​IMG]

    • Who: Anyone who wants to participate in the (re)birth of the second-oldest faction.
    • What: A political-themed plot with lots of planning and little combat. If you aren't into verbal sparring matches or debates, this plot probably isn't going to be very interesting for you.
    • Where: Right here.
    • When: Right now. That's right, people - the Elysian Celestial Empire is a Player Faction once more.
    • Why: Simple - I was so moved by the genuine concern and honest passion expressed by @xImmortalxBeauty and @Zack, I just had to do something to satisfy their sincere requests.
    • How: Via using the Quick N' Easy Character Template™ shown below:

    Code:
    <Instructions: Replace the carrots ("<" and ">") and the text within them with your own text. Once finished, delete the "Social Connections" section (unless you completed it) and delete these instructions. DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING ELSE, AS IT WILL MESS UP THE FORMATTING.>

    [/quote]

    Here's an example of the above template:


    Lastly, for those of you wondering what the political factions in Elysia actually are:

    There's two religious ones and two political ones; although it's effectively impossible to be a part of both religious parties or both political parties, most Elysians - especially Senators are affiliated with one political faction and one religious faction. My apologies if that's a bit confusing, as I typed this up in somewhat of a hurry - please send me a PM either here or on Discord if you have any questions.

    The Populares consist primarily of Caelisolans (though also include a handful of Patricians) and comprise 47.51% of the Senate, or 238 Senators. They (unsurprisingly) favor populism, the reduction of the vast social inequity between Patricians and Caelisolans, the removal of the restrictions barring Caelisolans from the higher orders of civil servants, the equalization of the distribution of psomi between Patricians and Caelisolans, and the reformation of the notoriously Patrician-biased welfare and education systems. Most Populares tend to be relatively youthful and representatives of the poorer suburban and agrarian districts.

    The Optimates, in contrast, consist entirely of Patricians and make up 48.90% of the Senate, or 245 Senators. They (also unsurprisingly) favor conservatism, the preservation of the pre-existing Patrician-dominated aristocracy, the preservation of the restrictions barring Caelisolans from the higher orders of civil servants, the preservation of the current distribution of psomi between Patricians and Caelisolans, and the preservation of the welfare and education system's current structure. Most Optimates tend to be relatively old and representatives of the wealthier suburban and urban districts.

    The Sacrae (Purists) comprise primarily of Patricians (along with a dozen or so Caelisolans) and tend to favor the belief that Elysians - and only Elysians - have souls, the concept that Elysians are superior in affairs both temporal and spiritual, and that non-Elysians should be looked down upon with, for barbarians have no place whatsoever within the ranks of the Church or society. Their ranks include 223 of the 501 Senators, 3 of the 7 Exarchs, and 73 of the 159 Episkopos.

    The Mollesco (Moderates), on the other hand, consist of Caelisolans (plus a couple of Patricians) and tend to favor the belief that all sentient individuals have souls, that Elysians are equal in all affairs, and that those who wish to worship the Lord (and correct the errors of their beliefs) should be allowed to do, regardless of race. Their numbers include 220 of the 501 Senators, 3 of the 7 Exarchs, and 71 of the 159 Episkopos.

    Apolpgies for the lack of a post this week @META_mahn and @paladinrpg - due to a hectic work schedule and familial politics (essentially being told "either return the laptop or find another place to live"), I haven't really had the time to sit down and write up a post. :oops:

    Wow, that's harsh. But I haven't had much time myself, between sick daughter, some temp work, and a hamster funeral...
