Another Family, Fellow Wanderers Rejoice
« on: October 17, 2016, 01:09:42 PM »






We're back. Or, uh, I'm back.



"You were gone?"




Nice job clicking on the topic, my wide-eyed doe. This is the part where I inform you I'm looking for a few good dudes or dudettes. 

When I write out "a few" in my posts, that means one. I'm trying to fill out the final spot in the greatest family in the history of families (yeah, staff-approved). Well, on second thought, that's a lofty title to both claim and aspire to (I hope). We're currently in the running, then.

If you're not instantly attracted to the possibility of just the two of us against the world, I am a little hurt. You and I could wander until death inevitably parts us, bombastic tracks blaring in the background. We'd probably fall down a chasm and end up eating each other to survive, though.

Doesn't matter! There's a third in the mix AND he or she is superior to me in every way. Whoa, talented mystery person. Tantalizing.

Now don't rush to the Armageddon homepage and place your storage request -just- yet. It's important to note that we won't be starting our adventures upon selection (expect a little bit of a wait).

Unfortunately for some, there are requirements for applicants to this trio. You can neatly fill them out in PMs expressing interest in the role. Here we go:
   - Experience in the major cities (Tuluk, Allanak, Luir's, and yes, I'll take Red Storm experience into consideration). Please detail yours.
   - The ability to exist without combat. If you absolutely despise social RP of any kind, this is most certainly not the role for you.
   - The longest length of time you've had a single PC. It's preferred you have one that's lasted for 5+ months (that's real time, not Zalanthian time) of relatively active play. We're not interested in people especially prone to storing and/or silly deaths.
   - You're cool with being a proud member of the human race. GAH, I fucking hate elves. 
   - Detail playtimes! Sadly, and I know it blows, you'll be passed over if you're unable to play at peak.
   - Some moderate to high dosage of creativity. It's a mega plus.

While it's not a requirement (hence not being listed under the requirements), floating me a short description and a main description for the potential PC shows sincerity and desire. If accepted, we can change them accordingly to fit the family characteristics.

Lastly, the gender of the final member is not set in stone and can be shifted by preference.

I haven't chiseled the closing date of this call to arms in stone, but you can expect it to be somewhere around the 25th of October.

*I'd like to note that bribery is an excellent way to get a leg up on the competition. Extortion will be met with a stern rebuke.

Whoops. Neglected to mention that we're not seeking magickers.



Edit: While I'm at it, you don't need experience in -every- city.

when i last asked staff about things like that, i was specifically informed that i was not able to dictate in my family role apps whether my family members were magickers/karma classes or not.

so i do not believe you can do that either. you might want to put in a request with staff to confirm, but from my previous experience it isn't up to you whether the applicant happens to app in a karma-subguild like an elementalist or not.
I could give a shit about wholesome.

I suppose someone could just not tell them and make it all the more fun when they start spewing fire at some point.

If an applicant would like to try and sneak one in, more power to them, m8. If they're going to write out the PC openly flaunting its status and that the family's consequently housed a rogue for however many years, I'm declining that freedom.

In line with the above, we're not actively seeking them.

I want to do this, but I wouldn't respect myself if I left my current role.

Its about the same for me in all honesty, plus I really shouldnt shirk on what I got going just for a rolecall.





(Even if I take into consideration how amazing it might be to get stuck with TheWanderer)

This scene triggers and scares some repressed-memory part of me, from when I watched this movie as a young kid, and I ain't even joking.

This is closed. Thanks to the applicants and I'll get back to you within the next week or two.
