First Post Club      16.05.2012 13:10:48 --- 1 Year, 11 Months ago  
The idea is to post one's first ever post as a player, which might amuse, intrigue or otherwise divert the KH community.

The process for finding one's first ever post is:

1. At the end of a thread (any thread) there is a button labelled "Favorite", press it.

2. This does some stuff ("Your favorite is being processed or somesuch), but eventually one is presented with an interface containing (amongst other settings) a section labelled "Forum Settings" and in that a link labelled "My Posts". Click that link.

3. This gives a list of links to your posts; if you have more than a few then only the latest few will be displayed. Change to viewing the earliest posts by pressing the "End >>" button.

4. Now you are looking a list of links to your earliest posts. Click on the last of these links.

5. This takes you to the thread containing your earliest post. Scroll down from the top and the first of your posts you find, is it.

6. Get the quoted text of that post, by pressing the "Quote" button. This put you in editing mode, but instead of editing and posting, just select all the text and copy it (i.e. copy and paste).

7. In this thread ("First Post Club", post a reply message: a) push the reply button, b) paste in the text copied at 6.

My first post is:

Given that long coastlines have proven difficult to defend, perhaps we should be looking to enhance our position in Asia Minor away from the coast? Both Bolu and Gerede are landlocked and abut Sinop, which has proven eminently defensible. In addition, Sinop has now started to grow in population, so its reinforcement with an adjacent shire may be wise. Gerede does have a border with the Akritian castle in Yenice, but they do not seem a current threat; it has the further advantage of bordering with the outpost of our brother-in-arms in Ulus, strengthening opportunities for mutual support.

Within Europe there are opportunities too: land-locked Baranya flows with honey (if not milk and honey). Bulgaria have ten knights crammed into one shire: perhaps they be encouraged to expand west, which would provide a buffer between Rome and Hungary?

We should be cautious about too rapidly reclaiming our Adriatic coastline. It may well lead to involvement in Italian politics, which has many perils that may not be matched by rewards.

We should encourage our Macedonian allies to adopt a similar focus on land-locked shires, whilst not undermining Rome's vital interests. Assuming they take Kosovo, their next move would ideally be Sterea and not Montenegro, and then a coastal province (perhaps Thessaly). This will leave us free to pursue our eventual interest in re-incorporating Montenegro followed (more importantly) by Serbia within the Empire.


NB: At that time there was no Serbia, and a large number of Roman knights were Serbian, so the goal of conquering Montenegro and Serbia was to give those Knights a place to build their shires.

I have to translate,my fourth post,first three was ,hi people,how to..etc.
I will try a bit at least picturise in english, arhaic style i wrote that post,but my arhaic english is not so good ,so..



TRANSLATION:

True it is,that new I am,but i recieved for this state's council invitation...

Peace they ask,would they give same to us?because from old butcher never new friend is!
What he gives to us?
That,what we already with our weapons gaining?
with Croats peace for I never am,there is no enough space on this world for them and for us.

But,when already,older and wiser heads than mine wants peace,let there be peace.

Let be known that He recognize us as Empire,let adress He to our brightening Tzar in official letters as Tzar of Great Serbia.

As much I can see it is better to abdicate not!
Defeat he will represent as acomplishment,so bad blooad will be among them,and that cheers us,
but,if someone better knows his temper,if vanity of his would accept it hard to do not sit on throne,if that would lead him in conflict,brawle and plottings more than now against their sordid (filthy) breed...then...

On war retributions add 100 silver to send to ecumenical Patriarch as a sign of humility and compensation for burning orthodox temples.
So it be known and seen,who is higher!

So that's from my side,brothers Serbian knights.

Uhm, I really can't quote the first post, as it seems that - surprise, surprise, I don't have access to the Templar forum. (I wonder why... )

So I'll give ya the third, which is on a public forum. It was soon after the infamous Flavioratus grasped the power from the incapable hands of the former Grandmaster, and the Viking king of that time was condemning the action.

QUOTE:

Later, in the castle of Krete...

The night was dark and only the sound of waves hitting the rocks the castle was built upon were disturbing the silence which veiled. The peace of the shire was recently troubled by bloody events and only for little time now the guards could return to their usual patrolling. Unrest could be still read in their eyes and their minds were troubled. A flask of wine was passed among the guards of the tower above the gates and quick prayers for forgiveness there were whispered with each gulp.

Suddenly, a sound of a galloping horse coming from the harbour could be heard. The guard raised his head over the rampart and hailed: Who rides there?! State your name and bussiness here!

With tired voice the rider answered the claim: I'm Mikal, emissary of the Thane of Norway. I carry news for your leader. Open at once!

With exquisite delicacy, the guard scratched his butt, pondering: Hmm, if I awake now the captain of the guards with this sleepless one's request, I'm up for a week with only bread and water. On the other hand, if I send him away for now, the master may not be pleased when he'll find out and this may bring much more nasty things to me. Muttering in discontent, he addressed the emissary with slow voice: Hey you, keep your voice down. The captain is in deep meditation and you don't want him disturbed. The master is not here, he's in campaign. Come in, quietly, and rest for the night! In the morning you shall meet the captain and you may talk to him.

As the gates of the town opened, Mikal was received in and sent to a guests' house. The guardsman returned to his duty, waiting impatiently the mornings with its new troubles.

In the morning, the captain of the castle met the Viking envoy: Our master is still on distant lands. Hand me the missive you are carrying, or take the voyage to the sunny Italy. Last word we received, he was camped with the rest of the army on the land known as Toscana.

I, Borna, as a new chancellor and foreign minister of Kingdom of Croatia, by authority given to me by my fellow king Ban Moroplovac,I am honored to declare that Kingdom of Croatia will always defend Bavarian and Italian independence and may God sharpen our swords as we fight together against the intruders.

Croatia will protect and serve the new pope, defend all Christian kingdoms against infidels , and may God be always on our side, in times of peace and in times of war.

But until that time arrives, Croatia will enjoy the peace and prosperity.

Also there might soon be a great tournament in Croatia , for all nobles of all nationality to test their strength, skill and win silver.

Once upon a time on this land where the Ilirs who opposed many many time ago the Romans. When the Romans crushed the Ilirs they put settlements on this land. The Nation was born under the king of Constantinople's request to aid them against the raging barbarians that roamed the land and so the Croats came to the deffence of the Eastern Roman Empire. The Croats putted up a brave fight and pushed back the Barbarians on their lands. The king of Constantinople granted them land in the balkans (east of mainland of Italy) and so they came.... with their swords and killed most of the native cultures of Avars and Romans. Only the Romans stod a chance against them in their mighty cities. The Croats settled near those cities and merging with the native Romans.

So there become 2 minor states of Croatia (not unified) 1 was Posavska (land) Croatia and 1 was Primorska (on the sea) Croatia. Croatia was under the control of Karlo the Great (french king) but Posavska Croatia didn't want this so they raised up and rebelled against them . Primorska Croatia as being loyal to French sided with them and defeated his Croatian brother and claimed both lands. Then the Franks spread Christian faith among the Croats and so the Croats became a cristian country. The First Croat that unified all of Croatias land is Rex Chroatorum Tomislav in 925. The King of Contstantinopole granted The king of Croatia control over the Dalmatian cities. Croatia controled Zahumlje , Dalmatia , Styria , Bosnien , Panonia (Posavska H.) , Macva and Bosnia. Croatia's allies were Duklja , Constantinopole , Vatican and some minor states. Arch enemies were Venice who wanted to cotntrol dalmatian cities. http://www.hic.hr/books/pavlicev/images/s01.gif
BLUE- control of Croatia
Light BLUE- temporary power (wars on either side) it was frequently lost and gained during wars
Purple- part of Dalmatia and mostly the kingdom of Duklja

QUOTE:

To the pope in Vatican
I Ban Moroplovac herby ask you to bless my people as i rightfuly claim Croatia for the glory of all chrisendom countries Croatia will stand fast with Vatican as we always did...

For the Glory of my people
your friend and vassal Ban Moroplovac of Croatia


this is a formal request to grant my country to this game as you did to Duklja.

info about Croatia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Croatia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Croatia_(medieval)

==================
I guess this was something like my petition for the Kingdom of Croatia, in the nations-RP part of the board.

Also I remember Borna's first post well. It was me teaching him how to be a chancellor for the Kingdom of Croatia at the time


Parata sedes tua!

The life of Sigfried reach the 18th spring in a sunny day. It was a day like any other, until the old seer Sigfried called him father come and told him the story of his real parents: Sigurd the Dragon's Slayer and Brunhilde the Maiden, Queen of Iceland. It took some time until the young realize the importance of the moment and the words reach his mind..
Even the Christianity is spreading fast all around the world, the old ways are still strong and many people still worship the Old Gods.They didn't died yet in the hearths of the people and their power didn't fade yet.
His father was a man of great deeds, but what impressed most the young boy was the fact he had a mother who keep him in his arms, smiling, a small treasure filled with love.
The anger grow inside until become a river, he rise the fist to the skies and his cry hit the heights like a challenge:
- ODIN !!
He think over and over again about Odin's revenge on his mother who made her to kills herself in the end. A tear drop from the Sigfried's soul badly hurt. Ravaged, exhausted, he fall asleep here where he was, insensible to the cold of the earth.
In the morning, the only father he knew, the seer, come with new clothes and his horse was also prepared to go.
The long journey of young Sigfried live just started!

QUOTE:
Its raining lightly.
I'm still on the road with my squires.

While entering in a dense forest, one of my soldiers saw a camp fire.
We've aproached quietly. Around the fire 7 bandits were sleeping and next to them a girl tied to a tree. As we were protectors of the Chivalric code it was our duty to save the girl.
Soon we've launched a surprise attack on the sleeping bandits. Me and my brave men were 10 at number and we have not encountered any resistance. The bandits near the fire were killed almost instantaneous.
The girl waked up and wa begging us not to kill her. I told her that we are here to rescue her and asked if there are any bandits left. She told me that this forest is crawling with bandits.. and that there are 50 or more bandits near the camp.
Bad news indeed. I've talked with my men and asked their advice. We were only 10 at number.

Gurth, my chief protector adviced me to wait the bandits in the shadows, and, once more launch a surprise attack on them. It was a good plant, and we have applied it.
It didnt worked as we wanted to. We were outnumbered 6 to 1 and soon we were surrounded. Despite of our courage, we will not see the daylight.

Just when the odds were against us, friendly faces appeared: it was La Hire, Hadrian, Geraldo..it was the French Army.
God sent them. We were saved.
8 of my squires were already dead; Gurth were one of them.. .
This person followed me all over the Europe, and now he is dead. He earned a shot that had to be mine.

La Hire helped me to bury all this brave men, protectors of the Chivalric Code.
The last of my squires fell in love with the young lady we have helped, so I've let him go freely.

I've saluted the French army and continued my journey and quest.

The Roman Emperor at Byzantium greets the Christian monarchs!

When Constantine the Great founded the city that was named Constantinople after him, he made it the capital of the largest empire the world had ever seen and he submitted it to our Heavenly Lord Jesus Christ.
Centuries have passed and several of the Roman provinces have become Christian realms since then. We, Balbok, Emperor of the Roman Empire at Constantinople or now Byzantium welcome you, the monarchs of these realms, as our cousins.
Other provinces have been captured and subdued to the evil cult of a false prophet. Still there live Christians in those provinces. They live under oppression and cry for help. We are hopeful that our cousins will not ignore their agony.
The Roman Empire will continue the legacy of our great ancestor and serve our triune God with all our power. We hope that the revered Patriarchs of Constantinople, the Vatican and of the other dioceses will succeed in keeping the faith strong and pure.

May our almighty God help us all in serving his cause!

Balbok, Roman Emperor at Byzantium
