Trials of Morality

Details

Overview
The Trials of Morality

Every being has a form of morality, whether they dabble in the dark arts, seek to do good among others, or perhaps even sacrifice themselves for the sake of others. The Trials of Morality aim to shape your character into their personality and beliefs. Every character is expected to go on this journey, but at their own pace and time. The Trials of Morality is completed to give benefits in activites such as rarer loot. It is necesary to complete the trials of Morality to particpate in the Grand Hunt. 

 

Detailed Information

All characters require two prompts to be completed. You must complete one juvenile prompt and one adult prompt! The prompts must be completed to the best of your ability. Trials are considered core lore pieces, so putting your best effort in is highly encouraged!

You will be able to pick if you wish for this to be considered Wild, Domestic, or Aether Moralities! There is no difference between the options aside from how the trial will appear on your dragon's page.

Up to four characters are allowed to have their Trials completed per submission, per player. This means if you are completing the trials as a collab, then each player may use 4 of their characters.

When calculating your Experience make sure you add in the Rite's points as well!

PROMPTS
Finding a Mentor

Try as we might, we can’t always learn everything that we need to all on our own. Sometimes we need to look to others for guidance, has your dragon found someone to help teach them what they need in life? Were they just a passerbyer who taught them something valuable? Perhaps they might have been your parents or simply a very knowledgeable friend.

Depict your dragon with someone who is helping to guide your dragon! Were they a welcome mentor or perhaps did your dragon wish they would disappear?

LEArning Lessons

Does your dragon learn to mind its manners the hard way? Were their parents good teachers or did they have to learn things without their guidance? Everyone experiences these situations differently, and it can define who they will be when they grow up.

Depict your dragon as they get into trouble, or help someone who has gotten into trouble. This can be them being scolded or caught during the act, or having a teaching moment with another character or companion.

Memories

There are many moments that make up a person’s life. Some of these moments turn into memories that they cherish far into adulthood while others are ones that haunt them forever. Perhaps it was just a moment where they achieved something that they’re proud of, or a moment when they ended up embarrassing themselves infront of someone they admire. Maybe they simply witnessed a beautiful scene that they found deeply profound!

Depict your dragon in a situation that they will remember forever, wether that be for better or worse.

FIRST STEPS

Every dragon needs to learn how to get around. Some learn to fly, others learn to walk and some learn both. It’s not always an easy task for everyone, and some may do better than others in this task.

Depict your dragon as they learn to walk or fly. Do they manage to do it wonderfully, or do they struggle?

 

Where do you find your food?

Food is one of the most important things for a dragon. Without it one would slowly wither away, but not everyone gets food the same way. Some hunt, some fish, some scavenge, some gather- and some do absolutely none of that! Sometimes dragons chose to buy with crystals or steal the hard work of others.

Depict your character seeking out their preferred foods. This can be literal preferred or just their favorite. Do they hunt down an animal for meat, or are they fishing? Are they seeking out special vegetables or herbs, or do they prefer the simplicity of a truly home cooked meal? Perhaps they are simply a scavenger, stealing what they can find, be it another's kill or the pie someone left out on the window?

How do you protect your own?

There are things that we treasure deeply. Sometimes its a small gem that was a gift from someone, while othertimes it is another person entirely. They are something that we must keep safe at all costs, but how?

Depict your dragon trying to protect something precious! Do they hover protectively near the precious thing, set up some traps, or do they end up having to fight with someone that means harm?

Trial of Safety

Perhaps the most meaningful part of raising young is finding them the safetest place they can grow. Being vulnerable, your young depends on your keen choices to keep them safe. Some are better at this than others, and it often shows in their choice of nesting location and materials.

Depict your character either choosing a location for a nest or building a nest. Do they bring sturdy items? Do they choose a place where they are safe? Or have they gone a bit astray and found a place that is frankly not quite safe, or at the very least practical?

Trial of Territory

while no one can truly own or tame the wild lands of Empyrean, there are those individuals who will claim dominion over stretches of land, happily claiming it as their own and defending it from those who would try to take it or pass through unwanted.

Depict your character defending their territory. They may be defending the territory from another of their species, or a creature that is unwelcome.

Where do you find your food?

Food is one of the most important things for a dragon. Without it one would slowly wither away, but not everyone gets food the same way. Some hunt, some fish, some scavenge, some gather- and some do absolutely none of that! Sometimes dragons chose to buy with crystals or steal the hard work of others.

Depict your dragon obtaining food! Do they work to obtain it themselves or do they feed themselves through alternative means?

How do you protect your own?

There are things that we treasure deeply. Sometimes its a small gem that was a gift from someone, while othertimes it is another person entirely. They are something that we must keep safe at all costs, but how?

Depict your dragon trying to protect something precious! Do they hover protectively near the precious thing, set up some traps, or do they end up having to fight with someone that means harm?

Peacemaker or Instigator?

Sometimes we may be faced with whether or not to do the right thing, wether that’s aiding someone or leaving them to figure it out. Perhaps a creature is suffering and you have the option to try and heal it or put it out of it’s misery. There are countles ways to handle a moral dilemma.

Depict your dragon in a moral dilemma! Do they decide to help? Do they watch the situation from a distance? Or maybe do they make the task harder for everyone involved.

Where is your Place?

Home is where your heart is- or was it hearth? Perhaps the phrase is determined by the one saying it, but either way everyone has some place that they consider their home, wether its a cave they filled with pelts, a cottage they’ve stolen from some pesky little human, or a caravan that they pull with them in their travels! Maybe your character simply has a location that they love to spend their time in or are happiest when sitting with their beloved.

Depict your dragon where they feel most at home! It can be a literal home, or a more metaphorical home.
