Summer Announcements (2019)

There have been a slew of changes going on that we'll now address in this post. Discord Server BDI has had a Discord server for a while, but beginning in May of this year, Gudrun began to set it up as an actual RP server. It's thoroughly gated behind a bot check, an age verification, and a number of...

Hiatus: How BDI Finally Broke Me

It's with a heavy heart that I make this announcement. I will be stepping away from BDI for the foreseeable future. This post will not be tactful or spare the details as to why. I've been an op in BDI for nearly 9 years. With the exception of Amy, who was brought on at the same time as I was, this h...

Re: Marilsani Negotiations

The Lord Admiral and the Sithire exchanged a look. The latter gave the slightest inclination of her head to the other, and he took up the burden of the conversation from that point. At least so long as the discussion remained focused on the needs and wants of the navy. "We can arrange a tour and ins...

Re: To Arangire Uzzo Salksilek, Thron ul-Bain ul-Silbranth

The reply comes a day or two after Arangire Salksilek's reply, written in the same neat hand of Sithire Auxerre's scribe. In black ink, written on premium vellum, the letter is brief. Arangire Salksilek - Your report is most troubling for the people of Mhernettla and Elgaria as a whole. It would not...

Re: Marilsani Negotiations

The choice of five years was deliberately high, if only to provide a place to negotiate from. They had expected the ambassador to balk, but not to provide additional assets and support. While Auxerre's expression hardly wavered beyond the polite mask that she wore during such discussions, the Lord A...

To Arangire Uzzo Salksilek, Thron ul-Bain ul-Silbranth

Written in a neat scribe's hand in crisp black ink on impeccable vellum: Arangire Salksilek -- It has come to my attention that communication with Sithire Wisplight of Elgaria has gone dry. After the downfall of Mhernettla, I find this most curious about our eastern neighbours. As a noble of Mhernet...

Re: The Devil's Tower

The government of Drache would very much like the infernal machinery, the experiments and any and all research notes available.

Re: Marilsani Negotiations

The discussion at the main negotiating table probably hadn't taken nearly as long as the Lord Admiral would have wished, but he served at Her Grace's pleasure and would not keep her waiting. She lifted a hand to gesture one of her ladies in waiting over, exchanging a soft whisper with the woman whom...

Re: Marilsani Negotiations

The Sithire sat quietly while the two diplomats hashed out the starting ground for their negotiations. She could have inserted herself into the proceedings, but there was little enough need for that. Brokering the arrangement should rain down enough fringe benefits. What interests Transdariania kept...

Re: Marilsani Negotiations

The noblewoman had no head for the matters of shipwrights and the navy. Just as well that the Lord Admiral, Anskar ul-Sangrith Daranek, and his aides had been invited to attend the negotiations, if only to vet the designs presented by the Marilsani delegation. The blueprints and paperwork were passe...
