COL Questions

Aug 2002 - COL HAS MOVED!! Ta'Vaalor and Solhaven are now where to find the HQ's of COL.  Be aware that there are NEW questions as well...

I prefer that Everyone have fun in the exploration of finding out the answers themselves but I know it is hard for some of our young to journey thru areas they are not familiar with or quite equipped to wander in so if you wish to find the answers, you can email me below and I can help you in your quest for the answers.

I do hope, If you can, to at least try to explore the areas for yourselves and enjoy the experience and learning of the history of the lands.


What is COL in the first place?!

"The Council of Light? Uncle CoL? Many whisperings are heard about this society, if in fact it is even a society at all. Accounts continuously arise from people who've encountered everything from overheard code words to tales of strange encounters with its members.

It's said to be a secret society, and little is known about this possible non-existent entity. Incautious adventurers who ask too many questions are said to be "taken care of" permanently. While obviosly nonsense, it still should be stated that the reports of such events often arise.

Lately, in fact, rumors have abounded about strongarm tactics and open displays of aggression. Of course, these are all rumors. In fact, I shouldn't be spreading them. It's all ficticious. Of course there's no CoL. Forget what I just said. I was joking about the whole thing. Heh heh, erm...heh."

-- Lord Grindoll Hevucita

COL is a secret society that any character with a training of 3 or higher can join (given that they aren't already in another society such a VOLN, or have not previously resigned from COL).

To advance in ranks, you must gather creature pelts, offerings such as robes and metal aventails, and answer questions (which CAN be learned without any help or guides like these by traveling the lands!).

Each rank yields a certain "sign" for the acolyte to use at the cost of mana or spirit.

Once the society is mastered by an acolyte, the Grand Poobaah... takes your soul. Woops!

"Ah, Master Lleonie," smirks the Poohbah, "I see that you have completed your training. Good. Now all can be revealed to you."

"We so like it when a candidate with your qualities falls into our clutches. You were so easy to corrupt. We gave you a few paltry powers and you gave us your soul. Your greed for power blinded you, Lleonie. Didn't you think there would be a price? Look into your heart and see yourself as you truly are; corrupted, blackened, stained by evil! Even though you were given several opportunities to resign, you stayed on. You walked, nay, you ran down the path to damnation!"

"Now our job is done. When the final battle begins, it is to us that you must rally. You are beyond the reach of my adversary. As a graduate of the society, you will retain your powers, but you are also bound by your oath of secrecy. I'm sure my friend the Dark Assassin won't have to pay a call to close your mouth!"

This seems to be very discouraging to many adventurers. But once again, it is their decision of whether they want to follow the path of "evil." In reality, you do not get spirit killed when your "soul" is taken away. You are just bound to COL on a level of roleplaying. When time comes (and assume it won't be any time soon), your character must rally on the side of evil - Luukos's side. So really, it's up to you. If you are a player with great mana capacity and could use the extra boosts the signs give you (or the ability to regain your mana with sign of wracking), then this is definitely for you!
