Tacea / The Seven Daggers
« Last post by Xiong Teng on Mar 13, 20, 08:30:30 PM »
    All geisha are devoted to the Dragon Queen of Tacea above every other earthly concern, but of all the geisha, only seven are permitted to serve at her left hand. These seven men, selected through a Territory-wide tournament, are called the Queen's "Seven Daggers".

    These men are the left hand of the Queen of Tacea. Not only are they her weapons and the tools with which she enacts her will, they are also her shields. A Dagger protects the Territory Queen, but their most critical duty is shielding Tacea from the consequences of training a Queen to be a warrior. The role of Dagger comes with great honor, but also great pressure: should their Queen ever be pushed to the killing edge, the Daggers must act to take her down (preferably without killing her) and defend the people around her.

    While some Territory Queens have elected to permit non-geisha to participate in the Tournament (most notably Yuki Natsuhana in 189AP) it is not traditional. The final placement of each geisha in the tournament is not terribly important, except for the first place geisha, who will serve as the Sword of the Queen if the Queen does not have another warrior she prefers. All winners of the tournament will be blood-bonded to the Queen, even if she is their heart-bonded Queen.

    Rarely, a geisha who serves in the Daggers will find his heart-bound Queen after taking the blood-bond to become a Dagger. What happens then depends upon the preference of the Dragon Queen: he might be freed to serve his Queen or he might be kept in the service of the Dragon Queen. If he is freed (or if a space otherwise opens on the Daggers) then the Dragon Queen may choose another male to replace him.

Announcements / Incoming Update to BR Boards
« Last post by halyonix on Mar 13, 20, 07:42:31 PM »
As a heads up to the forum - our web hosting company is forcing an upgrade on our server to PHP 7.3 (we're currently running version 5.6).

This will happen within the next few months, but there is no set day for when we will be upgraded. It is possible, even likely, that there could be an outage of the site during this time frame as a result.

We are researching how this is going to impact the site in the process. So far, it appears as though we can upgrade both PHP and SMF (our board's front end software) to a stable, compatible version. We are running tests on other software to validate this process. There are other potential complications around the key mods used on the board, and whether they will be fully compatible, which we will hopefully know after running the tests.

We will do our very best to keep the board up to date via this thread. Expected downtime has yet to be determined but we can reassure the community that we do run backups on the site regularly so we don't expect data loss.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
