Hey all. As some of you perhaps have known for a very long time now, I had planned to open up recruitment for BoK once the current story had reached its conclusion. Now that we are so close to that point, I had figured that I could coast to the end smoothly with only half the amount of human players that I had originally fielded for. However, the amount of active players in the campaign has dropped from 3 to 2. Without huge involvement of NPCs (which I know my players hate), completing the campaign at this stage is going to be an arduous process. Therefore, instead of sticking to my original plan and recruiting new players after the completion of this story arc, I am instead going to open up recruitment now right before the final confrontation for Part 1. So if you've been waiting a while to join in on the RP... now is your chance! Of course, the old guidelines from before are still in place for those wanting to join: 1. Character must be a female. Non-negotiable! 2. The character can be of any typical fantasy race- human, elf, dwarf, orc, gnome, etc. 3. The character can be any sort of class from fantasy-style games like D&D, Fire Emblem, Shining Force, Ragnarok Online, etc. I leave this part open since I like to give people the freedom to choose whatever they want to be, including classes that aren't typically seen often (like swordmage, dark knight, etc.) 4. If you plan to join the RP, you MUST be able to commit some time to it- this means you should be posting within a few days of my posts that prompt a response from you and you should make yourself available with me or other members to discuss strategy or anything else. In the past, I have set a time limit to make posts, but have removed that requirement as it became unnecessary (and I myself had broken it many times). I don't want to have to institute it again- keep in mind that when you take too long to post you're not only making me wait, but the other players as well. 5. BoK is a drama-free zone! If you have concerns or complaints about me or another member, please speak to me in private about it and keep it out of the RP itself. If you can abide by these rules, we can move on to the fun part! -Submit your ideas to me either in this thread, through forum PM or in the chat. If I do not respond to you right away in chat, I am most likely away or asleep. -I'll need a proper description of your character so I can sketch her for the RP itself. -Once all that is said and done, I'll create a character sheet for you and we can choose your talents, perks and class path. Then you're good to go! HOW WILL SELECTION WORK? Choosing the next member of BoK is not a simple process. Many factors are going to go into who I for the RP. This includes but is not limited to, your RP history, RP quality, how well you get along with others, how I think you'd fit into the RP at large, etc. Is this being judgmental? Absolutely. We've had a few issues arise in the past however with former members, so I feel having a bit more control over who gets chosen is going to work best for the RP going forward. Think of it as a 'screening'. So if you're someone new I've never met before and think you don't have a chance to become a member, you couldn't be more wrong. I actually enjoy the chance to see what new people are capable of! In fact I'd say that having a clean, clear slate would be more beneficial since you don't have anything against you. So please, don't have any reservations whoever you are and toss your character ideas at me! I look forward to speaking with a lot of you soon. I'll most likely have recruitment open for a month or so- however long I need to in order to reach my goal of 4 new members. If a new member is chosen, I will update this thread accordingly. And if you have any questions about BoK, feel free to ask me here or in private. Thanks! Here is a link to BoK for the record: The Blades of Kriegmar | Undertow IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO APPLY FOR A SPOT IN THE ROLEPLAY, KNOW THAT THE DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 1ST, 2016.
