2007-02-28 [Estantia]: about which bit?
2007-02-28 [Ravenclaw]: the whole bit. I mean is this a game or is it more of an experiment?
2007-02-28 [Estantia]: it's both, the point of the rp is to sort out the cultures and form these agreements.
2007-02-28 [Earoluim]: I have returned with a blessing from my leader, I wish to apply formaly now for the leadership of the minorities party.
2007-03-01 [Ravenclaw]: Ok I think I get it. it's like an RP study to build specific races and cultures. Cool!
2007-03-01 [Estantia]: basically, but it works like a government of sorts I think.
2007-03-01 [Piercedskull]: I ddont like the goverment
2007-03-01 [Estantia]: yes, and? that doesn't mean you won't like this.
2007-03-01 [Piercedskull]: Quuu

I will accept your Clan's blessings, but make certain that you have posted this in the comments on Lycan Clan, and be sure to help the owner with the Were Clans, which will host multiple Clans (because of the diversity of the races). I will change the above House Leader when I have seen your comment on her page expressing the same.
Also, in case more new people show up wondering what to do, and any of you reply to them, make certain you tell them to read through old comments on this page. I am going to delete some chat here to keep them small.
"Estantia: yes, and? that doesn't mean you won't like this."
Actually, I think that pretty much anyone would like this form of government, because it is THEM. That is a fun way to work in teams. Elftown Clans are the focus of this group for now. Let's keep on task for just a while, then we can get slacky. See what the Elfin Clan has done so far. Recreate their successes.
2007-03-02 [Ravenclaw]: So as in the government we would vote on what specific species have certin traits. Like one person wuld believe that werewolves are solitary creatures whereas I believe they have a tendency to "pack". We would discuss it and come to a reasionable conclusion. Btw an intresting fact: someone who disagrees with the way the governemnt is run is called a Disestablishme
2007-03-04 [xido]: Yes, Ravenclaw, I think you have it perfectly correct. The Clan will be the ones to decide the standard based on all the facts brought forward. In the meantime, the Clans are hangouts for creative people to do more to bring everyone together, and work on fun projects as a group. It serves multiple purposes: RP, project, and Council of roleplayers and Elftowners. The RP Council of Elftown Clans will work toward defining how Elftowners would like to do things, and the ECM is an outlet that will help define this as time goes by.
Great insight, Ravenclaw. ;)
2007-03-04 [J. "dragonruler" Rouse]: So I'll be contributing to the decision of my clans' traits? Correct?
2007-03-04 [Estantia]: That's the idea :)
2007-03-04 [Ravenclaw]: gotcha... now the only thing to do is to figure out what species I would prefer to gravatate toward. Werewolf, Vampire or Shape Shifter... those are y usual 3 but I prefer shape shifters in general. You never have to stick with one basic form and they aren't inhibited by the rules of teh full moon as most wearcreatures. Would it be possible for me to start a shape shifter clan???
2007-03-04 [Estantia]: hm, I'm actually a human shapeshifter, and as we generally keep the peace between all the clans it makes sense to be able to change (for example being a species other than human when visiting the vampires would make sense...)
2007-03-04 [Ravenclaw]: but then again a vapire's hightened senses would tell him/her that the animal form before them is infact a human. Unless the skill level of the shape shifter is rather high. A teenager visiting a vampire in the form of a cougar would be found out. But someone in their 30's would be much more dificult to detect. They might possibly be able to fool a werecreature as well.
2007-03-04 [Estantia]: They would of course be detected, but by appearing in a form other than human it means that vampires may be less tempted to make a snack out of them, making shapeshifters pretty good diplomats.
2007-03-04 [Danboo]: hello xido
2007-03-04 [Ravenclaw]: ah i gotcha
2007-03-06 [xido]: Hello Danboo (and everyone else).
I have an idea for you, you shapeshifter, you.... In the eventual proposal for Elftown Clans on the House presentation, there was going to be a choice of 'Multiple Clans'.... What if, say, a 'Multiple Clansperson' would be a member of an unspoken Clan of shapeshifters, and those people with more than one Clan would be subject to certain rules of the Clans, as per each Clan's own decision on who would be eligible for entry into the ECM session of a Clan's race.... I know that sounds funny.
But each of the Elftown Clans will have the chance to enter one of the Elftown Creature Marathon Contest List sessions as a group, and if the Clan decides that Shifter Clan members are not allowed to join in the final cut for session media, then it would be a decision made by the Clan (and not from the Houses - GOP and MGP) as to whether the final Clan-post was going to be from 'true' races of the Clans or not...
I did not plan for a Shifter Clan, and the <poll:73926> currently does not have a choice of multiple Clans/races. We will have to do some more discussions on this, but I think it might be a viable option in the future. ;)
