  1. What's new in this club
  2. ((The Bargain Knight: Part Three))
  3. " It turns out our knight had an incoming job. Though the letter never reached him, it didn't have to as he met with its sender before it arrived at Whitebrim. I was lucky enough to come onto the scene as they were still arguing about it, and potentially sending another party of their own to look for Gervant in Fallgourd, again. Apparently being closer, Fortemps sent their own to Fallgourd to investigate the first time, and something had put them off the first time around: leading to our hire. Drillmonte himself summoned us up when they decided to get loud about my questions. He has mellowed a great deal since I saw him last, even coming up the lack of stiffness towards outsiders was apparent. I am guessing his ordeals since, and the lives lost in between have softened his approach a little: even if his men could use a good reminding. Said men were however much more pliant than I expected when he chastised them just as loudly as they had been below, and tossed informing me of what they knew in their faces before he excused himself to see to the afternoon drills in their absence. That done, they allowed me to read the letter, finally; and filled in a few blanks, and though there were still some things they left out, I can't say what that could be until we find out, or find Gervant. I suspect still however given their character, that Gervant's lower status and mismatching, earned greater name has something to do with it. Many of them have served Durendaire for generations, where Lesaille only came to serve them after the Calamity when Falcon's watch was buried under snow and ice along with the Pass once leading into Western nearby. Given some of the comments made during the conversation, I believe he may be among the last of his kin; as one of them mentioned how he should have died in the avalanche in the pass with the rest of those what tried to escape the even colder climate changes in Western Coerthas to Central. In any case, we found the job he was after; as well as one of the debtor's men: who likely is the tool of a monetarist. I'm requesting Grace's help with this one. Comphas is letting that man go when he's done with the Serpents. I would like to see where he goes -- or rather to who. Eventually, his employer will pick him up. Finding out who it is will help us know what we're dealing with, and perhaps help us find out how much he owes. If we can get a hold of his ledger through the lender, maybe we can find out how much money he needs and discern what other jobs besides collecting Dullahan swords he might have gone after. Speaking of, we found his chestplate. Pretty likely he's gone to Hyrstmill to have it temporarily replaced, given the best smithy in the Shroud is there.. and very close to where his own was cracked and discarded. Hopefully, we find the man himself.. but I doubt it. If he were that close to Fallgourd still they would have found him by now. Perhaps the best thing to come of being attacked in the inn, is that we know that his pursuers are still looking, and think he's still alive. Which means unless he's gotten himself cleaved in half by a soulkin; means he probably is. Here's hoping that's a correct assumption, on both our parts. Folk like him who care and actually prove it to their own detriment, are rare. I hope he's alive, if only so he can stay that way long enough to see and feel the reward of it one day after if not when he gets home. ~Faruhn'li Rhalakos."

  5. " Not one for long reports. The dagger they got from the Toll sounded like it might be more than it seemed, so I asked the ladies to bring it up to the Paw for examination. Turns out it's whitesteel: an alloy made with a mineral the Ishgardians have a monopoly on in Whitebrim. Not cheap, or easy to come by. Next to impossible unless you're sworn to one of the Houses or have a shite-ton of money and the connections to get one made in Ishgard with all the honors. Given our knight didn't have any money and the state it was in I would say he kept using it, and it was important enough to leave at home: probably because he wasn't going wherever as Durendaire: if not because he didn't want it to see any further levels of disrepair he couldn't afford to fix. I'm heading up there tonight to see if I can't track down it's maker. The smith's mark isn't hard to memorize. --Drax "
  6. ((The Bargain Knight: Part One))
  7. " Our first stop in finding out about Ser Lesaille's whereabouts was his temporary residence in Revenant's Toll. Though no longer there, his rent has been paid through til next year; and many of his things are still within. Or were. While asking around about his last appearance and any known destination, we came across more than a few individuals whose opinions of the knight were varied thanks mostly to his habits of reducing his fees for Freelance work when being employed by those who were most in need. While many of the less skilled locals admired his sacrifice and helpfulness in the community; the expectation of similar price cuts this left on his peers was far less than welcome. In other words.. he made as many enemies as he did friends; and continued to pile up debt as a result of his price cutting. One such incensed individual was caught by the locals trying to loot his things while we were present; and was caught trying to abscond with a decent amount of personal effects, including a dagger that may or may not mark him as a man either in service to House Durendaire.. or to whom someone among them owe a debt. This in itself is curious, as Durendaire takes care of it's own, and is the richest House in Ishgard even to this day: still having management over both Whitebrim itself, and the compromised Stone Vigil. Further, while trading for pantry goods to take with him on his travels: he asked for a specific hot meal to be wrapped up, Lentils and Chestnuts: well herbed. As a Falcon's Nest man, his tastes have been confirmed as being very bland when it comes to food. We can only guess at this time that this dish was meant for his friend in Fallgourd: whom some children who pointed out 'Bo's theft pointed us towards when asked about Gervant. Our next step is to follow the trail to Fallgourd, after a visit to Whitebrim. I admit I don't look forward to it, and wonder if I shouldn't ask Lan to use his and his cousin's connections to better pry at Drillmonte or at least his aides in particular: none of whom have any love for me to say the least. ~Faruhn'li Rhalakos. "
  8. Friends of House Fortemps have sent us a bill to find and return a missing knight to Ishgard. Ser Gervant Lesaille was last seen leaving Revenant's Toll where he made his second home while stationed in Coerthas; and has not returned. It has been discovered he has run up a sizable debt of undisclosed amounts, which he paid with gil from an unknown source. Some contemplate the possibility fo approaching a loan shark; and that these individuals may or may not be in pursuit or have already caught Ser Lesaille. Regardless, Ishgard does not abandon her sons; and we have been requested to bring him home: hopefully alive, and if not: to have the peace of resting with his family at Falcon's Nest in death. ((Each part is usually followed by a report, and in a post after it a link to a log of the RP as it happened either here in our forums or in-game. Those posting logs are expected to clean them before posting as much as humanly possible, with as little OOC as possible. We recommend using chat filters to help with this, both in removing things like rolls, FC and party chat from the roleplay.))
  9. First and foremost: every character type, race, and sexual preference is welcome, within reason. Crafters, mercenaries, clan or tribal types, Aldentale is designed to have a place for everything and anything short of Garlean loyalist characters, and even then there are exceptions and antagonists needed, right? Smaller and family/clan/group stories aside, Eorzea, Gyr Abania and Doma are all at war with Garlemald at current. That said, any Garlean loyalists while welcome, would be a group apart from the rest of the FC and considered antagonistic until otherwise stated. We just ask that if you intend to play an antagonist that you make sure to state it when you apply, or with which character. While right now we only have three 'group' types to start new members off in and a few members, as we grow; we hope to expand the number and perhaps even shift leadership of some of those existing groups to other players! We also do not intend to stay solely inner-FC oriented! We will be attending others' events, and be taking 'jobs' from outside the company on a regular basis when possible. So how does that work, and where do you fit in? Whether you're joining our FC or looking to hire us in character; or just make connections: the first best step you can take is to join our discord at this link: https://discord.gg/Pet4HXz The nice thing about discord, is that we don't have to be online in order to get your messages; and can respond as soon as we're able. As many of us have alts we play and roleplay regilarly, this is a more reliable form of communication coming in, whether you're here to join or to hire. If we don't get back to you right away, be patient; most of us are on daily but also work! We'll get to your response as soon as we can! If you're looking to become a member, application is simple: Drop into discord, let us know you're interested; and with what character: we'll talk a little about them OOC to get an idea who they'll be working with the most and what initial group they'll be with. From there we'll follow through in game with an introduction or interview RP to get you situated in character too! If you want to hire us for a co-op event or just because: Pretty much the same as above, discord is a must for inter-FC communication! We just need a general outline of the job, where to meet you in game and what characters to look for to start! Please have a look at our rules page to understand both how we work on this side of teh brackets as well as see some of teh jobs we -won't- take; and have at least a rough outline of story done for our admins so we can keep track of our end too: including a basic do and don't list (things like don't abuse this npc, guard this person until x happens, or bring this item to X place that kind of thing.) That said just to cover the few things we do don't do for jobs IC: 1. No primals, no Ascians, very few higher voidsent. Primals and tempering are a real threat in the world our characters live in; the only known cure for tempering is death. Ascians are on the same level and sketchy; we don't mess with that. Higher voidsent is something we'll do, but not on a regular basis, so please check first. 2. No fantasia RP, few extreme makeover jobs. This one's a no brainer: fantasia is a game service, and is not recognized as something to be RPed outright here. There are ways around this, but they are difficult to explain in RP, especially changing races. We try to avoid these unless they have a solid, believable explanation. 3. No major cannon characters. Knowing about them is one thing, but we don't play, or play opposite of major cast roles from the world, such as the Scions, Grand Company or City State leadership. If you are hiring and choose to include us in an RP of yours involving these characters, give us a heads up ahead of time so we can minimalize and adjust contact with that element please. Otherwise, we take all jobs. Caravan, crafting, mercenary, spy work, curses, research, and even at times thieving, dungeoning.. just about everything and anything else you can think of. When I join.. how do jobs work? What's the process? First your character would be set with a starter group after or during their interview! Each starter group has it's own specialties and feel. Ferret and Nhagi's group is fairly well rounded and run by the male Keepers of the Sleeping Panther clan. Those uncertain and still trying to figure out their place will probably end up in their group. Those interested in joining the clan or existing clan members, interested in management or starting their own group, if not forwarding the Company's growth or intending to do research, usually stay in this category. Lan and Mishinko's group deals with the grey area jobs and occupations: from organizing street fights, thievery, smuggling, gambling both legal and illegal, spy work, to high end prostitution, drugs and more. Most with those kinds of skills and connections tend to end up with them; Landgrent often handling the Eorzean side of things while Mishinko handles the far east and runs his own theatres as taikomochi (Male original version of Geisha or in Hydaelyn they're called Geika, for those unfamiliar.) Drax's Group is merchant and crafter; with a heavy Mercenary overtones. Much of what they sell in the shop upstairs is either made by the members, or brought back from varied locales by the Mercenary end of the grouping. Mant mercenaries end up here, along with engineers, and craftspeople. There's three kinds of jobs no matter where you land: Company Jobs, External Jobs, and Retroactive jobs. External Jobs are jobs we're employed to work from outside companies and always dealt with entirely IC. If you get an offer for an external job, this type has to be roughly reviewed and approved by an FC admin, and communication and RP done with the one hiring before moving on it. Internal Jobs, are those set up entirely by the members of our FC. Anyone can make a job, so long as it stays within our rules and has a rough outline. Inform us if you make one so we can announce it in discord and pin a Job thread you make here in our forum for folks to follow in case something happens and someone gets behind on info, etc. Retroactive jobs, are jobs that are constantly available and can be taken up IC, but can also be used OOC in certain situations: like character or player absences when you yourself are busy or can't be on.. but your character is still around. Some jobs will have extra rewards, such as decorations, glamors, and more! So watch the Jobs threads and channel in discord! We will try to help you with room costs, as well. Our current plot is in Mists, Ward 16 Plot 44.
