I agree about the absurdity of conversations that last two days and two nights. but in terms of age - especially long-term characters - passage of time throws up interesting questions.

Yeah, it's all subjective and based on the story being told.

This is the way.

I prefer to use real-time, myself! I don't imagine any of my characters have really had 4 day conversations, for instance.

It should be noted though that time is a nebulous concept at best on Thain. The answer to any question about how much time has passed between two events is always "however much time is most interesting for the story".

@Kyssyt,
I did the math on that about 10 years ago, and if it hasn't changed, 1 year RL is equal to about 30 years game time on Thain. So, 12 years RL would be about 360 years on Thain.

What's 12 RL years in Thain years?

You know, this Melphaecto woman may be a bit harsh, but she at least has a code.

Vaurin is looking like the hero we all need after all.

"We meet again"


"We meet again"


"Lonely?"


"I try to keep myself busy"


"You weren't like this"


"People change"


"Oh, come on"


"Go to hell"


"We're almost there!"


"I thought these little conversations had been left behind"


"There's not a whole lot changed"


"Go to hell"

Ashan waved the thoughts away. Though the visions had stopped long ago, he often found himself considering, sometimes out loud, the events that led to such an important shift in his person. At the time they looked like a necessity. Survivalism.

He looked at his garden. Deep inside Ashan knew that it didn't mean much to him. At best, it made him stay focused on lesser matters, which was good. At second best, it allowed him to pay for a prostitute a week, maybe two if sales were good. At worst, it wasn't worth dying for. Nothing was left for him to die for. Nothing commanded the power to force him into taking the actions necessary to just feel alive.

"No one likes you"


"What?"


"No one will miss you if you go"


"I don't need anyone to miss me"

Though he needed to ask questions, he felt as if doing so would be a confirmation of weakness. In a way it was, as the unbreakable Ashan started to doubt about his very essence and what was really his ultimate fate. By purposely pondering he was making it obvious to his consciousness that he was not sure about anything.

He stood in front of a mirror; he had read one or two books in which the character did so in order to adequately explore his inner self, or something somewhat similar ("Eh, I haven't got the best of memories"). It was ridiculous, humilliating and plain childish, but he was not about to turn his back on himself.

He wanted to know who he was. The chanting began. A green light bathed the walls and bones were broken and flesh was torn apart. He must have done it a dozen times.

"Stop".

"What?"


"You look like a little dubitative adolescent".

"That's the problem".


"But you know".

"No".


"Yes".

"Yes".

"You are the Formless".

"I am the Formless".

"What if I told you that everything you have done up to this point is a lie? What if I told you that you were born a vermin, that you've lived like a vermin and that you'll die a vermin? What if I told you that you were swept into a maniac cult-like religion by a few well placed words? What if I told you that, despite what you seem to think, you are not the owner of yourself? What if I told you that the man you always dreamed to be is miles away from what you are?"

"I would agree."


"And you don't care?"

"Oh, I do. But I'm now in control."


"You seem to be awfully sure of yourself."

"I have nothing to lose."
