So last time I gave the backstory and what happened in Nomi's first clash with politics in Midkemia, let me remind you all that I refer to Nomi as a third person because Midkemia is a role-playing world, and I don't really attach myself to Nomi! Anyways, the clash with politics left her with a city disfavor and a sense that she had very few friends in Sar-Sargoth compared to how many she thought she had, because of how few people stuck up for her! So after a discussion with Rhiarinn (one of Nomi's biggest role-models and her Clan Leader), Nomi calmed down a little bit and tried to just avoid making trouble. But come on, how good can a goblin be at avoiding trouble, anyways? Anyways, Nomi's groundrules were not to accept help from enemies anymore, though the head leader of Sar-Sargoth broke that very rule while she was still in the process of telling Nomi not to.
A few RL days later, there was a Clover Hunt, and one of Nomi's citymates decided to capture the pixie who was in charge of it. With Nomi's back-story in mind (she hates being trapped and hates fire), she had a lot of sympathy for the pixie and threatened to kill Devlin if he didn't release the pixie. Naturally, a few people didn't like that much at all, and stood up to Nomi. I had a pretty fun 1v2 fight against Tora and Firengaud (Firengaud is one of the better PvPers of the game) and won twice, so Nomi was feeling pretty confident when she went back to Devlin. Unfortunately many more people were there, and when Nomi tried to kill him, she got squashed pretty quickly.
They started demanding the pixie summon an artifact from Elvandar, threatening torture and worse. After the pixie got started, fights broke out, and eventually the artifact, a runeblade (with weapon stats of 150 damage, 150 accuracy, 150 speed which is great considering average weapons in Midkemia have one good stat around 170 and two okay stats at 60) was summoned. Moredhel, the main race of Sar-Sargoth, go pretty nuts over these artifacts, but they didn't let the pixie go afterwards. Lilah, a leader in Sar-Sargoth, took the pixie to a special set of rooms called the Hall of Worlds, and that was when Nomi popped out of the shadows and killed her.
Taking the jar, Nomi ran off and freed the pixie, letting it run free. Once Lilah came back to life, she kicked Nomi from Sar-Sargoth, and enemied her as well. This was when I decided to stay gone. I actually waited a really long time to talk to Rhiarinn for kind of long, but the RP was more politics and she was just so focused on politics that she didn't see any of the signs that Nomi was about to leave. Nomi never seriously questioned her once before, let alone four times in the course of an hour, so I was rather surprised at her astonishment when Nomi quit Raven (one of the Guilds in Midkemia) and didn't rejoin Sar-Sargoth, instead joining Krondor and leading their forces against Sar-Sargoth. To Sar-Sargoth, this is betrayal, but to Nomi, they betrayed her when they allowed Lilah to kick her from her home simply for doing what she thought was the right thing, then refusing to speak about it!
Nomi's pretty happy in Krondor now, she's treated very well and is having a lot of fun making new friends. A few of her older friends from Sar-Sargoth have forgiven her already, but a few others broke her heart with an impressive amount of hatred. One player even snubbed (the equivalent of /ignore) Nomi simply for not killing her and offering tips instead!! That was rather disappointing just because of the absurd loss of RP potential, but I guess some people just aren't up for it sometimes. Next blog will go over something that, as an avid PvPer, is much more fun to talk about: PvP!!
