Tucked away in the beautiful labyrinth of paths and walks inthe heart of Gridania’s Lavender Beds sits the modest yet welcoming home two brothers who have made it their life’s work to help others in need. They’ve prided themselves on creating a home that is warm, receiving to those who are seeking a cozy place to call their own. Adventurers old and young are invited here to rest and relax among friends. They offer a small boarding home where one can find work and refuge. Partially backing this small venture they have created a tavern within the heart of the home, giving any weary traveler a warm hearth, hot meals and hearty drinks made by their very own brew master.
In truth, the humble little sanctuary is more than meets theeye. Behind the tranquil façade of welcoming faces lay a small network of scholars and specialist alike that have banded together to study and further their understandings of the interworking in Aetherology. Here lies the true core of Ecclesia, the group of theologians that practice and continue their work in the Sharlayan tradition; giving value and respect in knowledge above all else. Prizing themselves on understanding, learning, history, magic and science, believing that such attributes are the fundamentals in mastering all fields of study both martial and aetheric. Using their humbled skills to fund the hostel operating as specialists and investigators for hire. Exploring hunts and evils that concentrate on more unusual natures. Experts on voidal phenomena, missing persons, beast of unknown nature, and aetheric troubles. There is no issue that the Ecclesia will shyaway from, ready to work tirelessly on any pursuits.
Ecclesia welcomes friends from all walks of life. A home forlost travelers, offering work in our hostel to those that would seek our shelter. Always searching for those to help care for our tavern and board. For those seeking more periled adventure, there is always a need for academic and martial masters. To gain entry into our circle of knowledge, merely approach with a steady and true heart.
Ecclesia RP Style (Tavern style RP/Long term Story DrivenRP)
Open/Tavern Style RP:As mentioned, Ecclesia is both a tavern style RP as well as a place to work on long term RP story arcs with friends. Our main goal here is to interweave personal RP story into a longer driven story arc that others can help further with you.
Our tavern style events will revolve around ourboardinghouse and open tavern on our property. These will be more or less social gatherings with various free form themes and purposes. Any of our members are welcome to play host, creating endless potential for fun lighthearted RP. Our home is also available to host any events for other companies looking for a space to rent, contact us for specifics.
Linear/Story DrivenRP: With planned DMed events, the company does continuously offer small RPplots (jobs/assignments) to participate with on a regular basis. While we all have our own internal stories to develop we do seek out players that are in it for the long game, ready to work with others to give and take from each other adding to the community as a whole. Collaborating out-of-character with members to insure that everyone can contribute to the wealth of our company’s success.
Ecclesia for Hire: Ecclesiais always looking for work, collaborating with independent players outside as well as other companies. Freelancing jobs/assignments are always welcomed. Perhaps you’re character needs to be hunted or has a bounty, or in need of help locating desired relics? Curses, voidal concerns or issues with missing persons all can be furthered with our help. We do ask that if you are interested in becoming and or in need of a protagonist or antagonist that you speak with us ahead of time. Making plans and accommodations to set limits and boundaries will ensure that everyone will have fun while contributing to all characters.
Ecclesia is a neutral group, both good and bad alignedcharacters are welcomed, we love antagonists as well as our heroes. We have places for the more domesticated characters wanting to settle in, work on honorable trades while becoming part of a family. Tavern maids, and brew masters to chefs along with a need for scholars, cartographers and wardens, there is literally a place for all. Wedo not aim to succeed or fail in all ventures, every task doesn’t always have to have a perfect ending. Joining is not a requirement to participate in any of our activities, we are here first and foremost to make friends, contacts and write a great story.

Rules: Lore: Though we aren’t lore elitists, company RPshould always fall within the realm of lore, we strive to avoid contradictions with established lore to ensure that open company RP will always have a set jurisdiction of boundaries and norms to rely on. With that said, there is room for charactercreativity and of course you are welcome to do what you like with your personal RP. Any lore related questions arewelcomed, we have access to a wealth of lore information. Using the lore in more creative ways is encouraged!
Participation: Participate, the best way to build anin game family it to keep communication alive both in character and out of character. Interact with your fellow company mates, the last thing we would ever want is for you to isolate yourself. Ask for help or RP whenever! Inactivity without a heads up will make us all sad and most likely leave you without a home upon return. Just let us know you’re going to be off line.
Admiration for your game family: Respect your fellowplayers and their characters above all else. To live a creative life we must lose our fear of being wrong, so encourage each other and challenge the story in the most positive way possible. Communicate ooc when coming across complicated story arcs. Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. No powergame, metagame, or godmodes. Yourepresent us when you wear our name, please keep this in mind. Rude behavior in public will not be tolerated. In areas of high population (like a city tavern) we ask that you conduct yourself accordingly.
Realistic characters need only apply. Again, this is acompany that is built for those seeking long term story development. Character skill, development and story layering happens within a reasonable amount of time. If you are inviting others into your story, be respectful that they may need to develop with you at times, don’t jump too far ahead without them.
Discord: We do infact have a Discord. Just messageour GM or any player should really have it if participating in the FC.
CONTENT: Hi, Cev here. As guild master or FC leader Iwanted to create a place where RP and Content could mesh well. I will not turn you away if you aren’t interested in RP but keep in mind that is the main focus of this FC. I would like to carry us through certain raids and content as a CASUAL GROUP. I don’t want people hating one another or feeling bad that we didn’t succeed. This isn’t a static or hardcore group. Can’t wait to meet you all! ^_^
