Re: "Strapping Tape"

It's tape with reinforcing fibers, which is much more resistant to tearing than duct tape. E.g. https://smile.amazon.com/T-R-U-FIL-795-Filament-Strapping-Tape/dp/B01FYJKI8U/ You run two strips of tape down the length of the core. They will be parallel, not crossing, so they are on opposite sides of ...

Re: Symbol for Coinage (Mark / Schill / etc)

Shill: a curving branch of leaves, so a leaf-like shape could work, but "s" (as already suggested) invokes that sense of curvature and is easy to type, and obviously also stands for shill. But if you don't want a letter, it could also be ~. Mark: the coin shows two blades (which clearly means that 5...

Re: Character database issues

Thanks, since I do not travel in that accursed land.

I assume someone will tell us if we need to submit PELs and BGSs by another means.

Re: Character database issues

The Host, eh? I blame Orsgul! It was bad enough when the darkened interfered with couriers and the libraries, but now they've shut down all BGSs! This means war!

Anyway, thanks for working on it and the update.

Scroll tap and writs

Can a writ be scroll tapped? Masterpiece explicitly says that it cannot be, but I can't find anything either way regarding writs. Presumably the answer is either "no" or "once per event".

Re: Fflor Religion, Gods, and the greater use of language

There aren't really gods in ToV unless you consider the spirits and guides as such. You could certainly invoke them. Curse of the Stranger who ever wanders, the Longing of Dearth for something that seems ever out of reach, the Mark of Thorn for any wound... You can also invoke the various heroes and...

They do ok on fancy combat and brutal ladies, too. Probably better at the latter though. ;)

Re: Spirit Champion?

Purely from a player perspective, I would suggest: 1) Talk to followers of other spirits about what has strengthened their spirits and strengthened their bonds with their spirits. 2) Clearly define the things that your spirit expects of you. Could be behaviors, code of honor, special days/festivals/...
