Hello Friends & Lovers
The Blackwood Tribe is a new RP-lite static group I'm starting on Sarlona, as part of the role-play guild Drawn by Fate. You can find more information about Drawn by Fate here. We will be meeting once-a-week for a 3 hour play session.
The Blackwood Tribe is a nature-based group of wildmen and women, who make their home deep in the forest. The wise elders of the Tribe have ordered a young band to venture forth and leave the forest, to go to the city, and learn about the rest of the world.
As a nature-based group, your toon is limited to the following:
Race Restrictions: Half-orc, Human, Elf
Class Restrictions: Barbarian, Druid, Ranger, Bard (Elf-only)
Alignment Restrictions: None
Naming Restrictions: First name must be relatively IC-ish. Surname must be "Blackwood"
Biography: Put your character's history in your biography. Length is up to you. This group all comes from the same Tribe, so we're not going to spend the first meeting listening to someone tell us about his character for an hour. If there's something important about your character's backstory, BIO it, and it will be assumed that everyone will read each other's BIO on the first day. You may also post a more in-depth biography in this forum so we have a better idea of where everyone is coming from. If more information is requested on the backstory of the Blackwood tribe that is something we can all create together.
You may mix and match as you please, however, Bard is reserved for Elf only. In the case of the Elf-bard, your character is limited to being either a Nymph or a Nature Spirit loyal to the Tribe who has agreed to assist the adventurers on their journey. Elves of other classes are normal/wood elves. The Nymph motif is limited to the Bard.
You may build your character however you choose, but you are not allowed to multiclass.
Group Rules:- Roleplay Lite:
Stay in-character. Party chat is strictly IC. Guild chat is openly OOC.
Other OOC chat should be limited to tells. Please don't fill up party chart with:
** comments like these because they are annoying **
If you have to run afk for a minute or two just /tell the party leader. It will be assumed that ALL /tells are OOC.
During Group Runs Guild chat will be used for coordinating & directions. Once that has finished, keep the chat In Party. I don't have a working microphone so Voice chat is optional.
- No Twink Gear:
Some players may be starting fresh on Sarlona. To keep things fair, no twink gear. Auction House and Brokers are allowed. Guild chest is allowed. Guild presents are allowed. Trading/Passing within group is encouraged.
A quick note on passing equipment... Let's say you find a +1 Holy Great Axe in the chest, but you are a TWF Ranger, and there is a THF Half-orc in the party. Either pass the Great Axe to the Half-orc in the chest, or /tell her if she wants it. - Characters Start at Level 5:
I cannot role-play on Korthos or the Harbor anymore.
This group is starting at level 5. If you need help leveling up your character before the first meeting, I will be happy to you assist you. That assistance will be OOC.
- Premium Account Required:
We will be doing a bit of Premium content. Every now and then a guest pass is fine, but you're going to have to hold your own. Interested participants should post, in this thread, which packs they own or have access to and a schedule will be written up accordingly.
- Hard Streak:
We will be doing all quests on Hard, once and done.
If there is a specific piece of equipment you need/want from a quest/chain, you are free to farm it in your off-time, but you cannot out-level the group.
Those are really the only rules at this time. I'm a pretty laid-back group leader. If there are specific questions, feel free to ask in this thread, send me a PM, or contact Gova in-game on Sarlona.
- As of right now we don't have a set meeting schedule. We're looking at either Wednesday Mornings or Tuesday Evenings.
