Nalyd, your post was fine, but there's one thing I'm uncomfortable with:

quote:
Seoth had been born over fifteen thousand years ago...
Fifteen thousand. Do you see what's wrong with this? Here, I'll give you a hint:

quote:
Sometimes the debates between scholars over precisely when the first historical reference to a deity occurred can get quite heated. Some say that the first allusions to gods were written in manuscripts over one millennium old. Others state that the oldest reliable records clearly referring to a divine being date back only eight centuries.
Combine this with the fact that I have hinted that the demon war took place relatively early in the era of gods, and that Mangroankeen was imprisoned one thousand years ago. So I guess it's safe to deduce that even the oldest gods (such as Tuoni and Sliross) are only between one and two thousand years old. So, you just might want to divide Seoth's age with ten.

Plus, this is something I want clarity about, did your character fight in the original demon war? 'Cause if he was born roughly around the beginning of the era of gods (lets say ~1500 years ago) and became a god some sixty years later, he was definitely there.

Just trying to retain a logical time line here. Sorry if it causes you trouble.

Nalyd knew that he was forgetting something. We really need maps, timetables, and overall area descriptions here.

Maps we have... enough, I think, but maybe we should get them into a single place. Maybe the beginning of the next OOC thread. I'm worried UBB will eat this any second now. A timetable, though, we definitely need. I'll give it a shot within the next few weeks. Blame NaNoWriMo for my hurries.

2000 years old seems a little young for an entire existence.

By the way, Nalyd finished the post. Read it. And post, damn you!

Only hell is that old as far as the gods they could be a thousand or two thousand years older. However I will point out I am not the one who made the time line everything just more sort of fell into place.

Nalyd, I think it has been strongly implied that the world is older than that... but gods ain't. Gods have made Kalandha what it is, but they are not responsible for it's original creation. This is how I see it, and have seen it from the beginning.

As for the time line, I am currently rereading the RP. There's an awful lot of things to account for, so I'd appreciate if everyone PM'ed me the ages of their gods and any major events they participated in. I know most of them have been posted either on this topic or the IC, but I might miss some things, so it's good to have a failsafe.

Ah. Okay. That makes more sense. Sorry to be difficult.

Dammit. Now Nalyd wants to RP again.

Edit: And we're having another purge? That was fast.
