Seth + Violet

THE HANDSOME BARD, AND THE BEAUTIFUL BAR MAID
So far we have discussed human interaction, now we shall discuss what you can expect from the two computer generated characters, Seth, and Violet. Both of these characters are similar to their human counterparts in that they also do not appreciate being jumped upon. They don't object to flirting, and will accept the flirts of all warriors, but they appreciate it when you start out slow with them just as you would another player. Here are the lists of options that you will see, and the charm points needed for each.

Why do you not receive any experience when you marry Seth? Good question! BUT, knowing Seth he probably feels that the honor of being married to the greatest catch in the realm is reward in itself.
Neither Violet or Seth will visit the Heart Shaped Bed with a person married to another. Violet will tell the guys they are a "Dirty Old Man", and Seth, well Seth is just plain NASTY!! You will NOT like what he calls a married warrior who inadvertently or otherwise asks him to the Heart Shaped Bed! As usual, both of these encounters are recorded in the Daily News.
MARRIAGE TO VIOLET:
A marriage to Violet, Turgon's fair daughter, is an excellent source of having children, which is of course another forest fight for each child born. There are rules that are best followed when married to Violet to keep her happy and making babies for you. Do not flirt in any way with another female, nor can you accept a flirt. She doesn't appreciate it when you have a little meeting even with another NPC from an IGM. If it moves your score on the Old Man's Table, and she was not the one to do it, she will either divorce you, or not give you a baby for that day. You must increase your charm daily, you will lose up to 5 charm points each day you are married to Violet. Unfortunately your marriage to Violet will be over in a week or so, I've heard of the marriage lasting longer than that, but I assume it is rare. Upon your divorce from Violet your charm will drop to 50.
LORD v4.0x Note: When players divorce each other, or have a divorce with Seth/Violet, your charm drops to 50 percent of what you had.
MARRIAGE TO SETH:
The singing Bard, who is so wonderful that at times he has even been known to double your gold in the bank by singing to you, is THE catch of a lifetime. As Seth's wife you are also under the same rules that apply to Violet's husband. Seth does allow his wife to visit him at work and he will allow you to flirt with him, but he doesn't feel you should do it often. If you flirt too much, you make this stud "unhappy".
The joy of being married to Seth is the forest fights you get for each baby born. If you stay out of the clutches of other males, IGM's included, Seth will bless you with a bundle of joy every day. If Seth is not happy, he will not tell you why, and neither will he give you a baby.
If you have enough charm, and have not been with any one else, your wedding will be classified as a "White Wedding", and it will be rewarding. You will receive 5,000 experience points, the envy and respect of the other warriors, and the announcement in the Daily News of the rare event. 10/15/02 Note: This also applies to regular player marriages, where you have zero Lays, and are virginal.
Another fun way of flirting with Seth is if he is married to another and you choose to flirt with him anyway. If your charm is high enough you can make him "Falter". I cannot give you a specific number needed because it varies, but if you succeed in making Seth falter, you will receive a nice chunk of experience points and the incident will be written into the Daily News. His wife will be sent a message that another woman has successfully flirted with her husband.
A warrior that can make Seth falter is a stunning beauty indeed! Before attempting this, I suggest finding out what his present wives' charm is and then get 250 more. If he tells you that you are X number of charm points away from even being considered a woman, that is a hint as to how much more charm you need. If he tells you that you are silly, you are being told that you are so far away from having enough charm that it is funny. If you are playing a game with IGM's where you can purchase charm you can have a good time playing around with some of these little known "female" features.
One thing you should know before you take the big step with Seth, he does not take to divorce lightly. When you and Seth divorce your charm will drop to 30 and it won't bother him one bit. He'll be back to flirting with, and marrying other warrior maiden's in a heartbeat. 10/15/02 Note: Under LORD v4.05pb+, the player's charm is dropped by 50 percent instead of being dropped to 30 (for females) or 50 (for males).
Now I ask you, did you ever think there was so much involved in "Writing Romantic Mail"? It just goes to show that there is much more to the game LEGEND of the RED DRAGON, than what you see on the surface.
