Chivalry

From AchaeaWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Chivalry is a skill that may be thought of as having three distinct parts. The first part, Falconry, involves the raising, training, and use of falcons. The second part of Chivalry is archery. By gaining the abilities to assess wind direction and speed and use different kinds of weapons (longbows, crossbows, darkbows) you may attack from afar, or shoot at a cowardly opponent who has fled to the skies. The third and final part of Chivalry involves an assortment of aggressive abilities ranging from howling a Battlecry, to Engaging your unlucky opponent, to boosting your prowess with Fury.

The skill of Chivalry is available to to members of the three knight classes: Infernal, Paladin, and Runewarden.

Knights also share the skill of Weaponmastery and each have their own unique skill; Infernals command the dark art of Oppression, Paladins wield the holy power of Devotion, and Runewardens possess the mystical talant of Runelore.

Details: The art of Falconry is a noble one indeed. It is a sport reserved solely for those of chivalrous breeding, for a bird as noble as the falcon would never respond to commands given by one without honour.

When you initially gain Falconry, the first thing you must do is find a hatchery. At the hatchery, FALCON REQUEST.

Hatcheries are located in:
* the Mhojave desert near the Ruins of el'Jazira
- the Ashtan resource hub
- the Cyrene resource hub
- the Eleusian resource hub
- the Hashan resource hub
- the Mhaldor resource hub
- the Targossas resource hub
- the manor of the Grand Merchant Collective, in Delos
(*) this is the only public hatchery.

Each hatchery gives out a different breed of falcon. The breeds vary in appearance only: capabilities are identical.

Your falcon comes to you with assorted statistics which have been randomly assigned.

If you cause your falcon to die, you will be refused another falcon. There is absolutely no excuse for killing or conspiring to kill your falcon.

Below is a list of commands that may be used once you have gotten your falcon.

FALCON ASSESS : See information about your falcon.
FALCON RECALL : Recall your falcon to your wrist. Requires a falconry glove.

FALCON FEED RAT : Feed the corpses of rats to your falcon.

Inspecting your quiver will show you how many of each colour arrow you possess and what venoms they have been covered with.

Further, you may dye any number of undyed arrows the colour of your choice. However, you will find yourself unable to do so if you have arrows of that colour envenomed within your quiver.

Colours you may use are red, blue, purple, green, black, white, grey, orange, gold, and silver.
