The Warden's Reliquary is an Out of Character linkshell dedicated to forging long-lasting OOC & IC contacts within the confines of the traditional Seeker of the Sun role-play theme. The general rule of thumb is to keep it tribal-related. We also welcome miqo'te characters that are:
☼ Exiled from their tribe.
☼ Keeper and Seeker mixed.
☼ Interested in exploring their heritage and/or tribal life.
☼ Have tribal roots. (Example: Raised tribal, now a city miqo'te.)
In order to join the linkshell, you have several options, all of which are detailed in this thread here.
A an ever-evolving work in progress, our role-play primer might also offer some advice and tips for those who are new to tribal role-play or need brushing up after joining.
NOTICE: The Temple of Azeyma associated with the linkshell was relocated during the last housing ward drop. It is not open to the public quite yet! Please be patient.
Ⅰ. You and your character must be over the age of eighteen.
- No underage.
- No exceptions.
Ⅱ. This is not a safe space.
- This rule does not give you a free pass to treat other members cruelly. We require basic human decency.
- Swearing is allowed in our linkshell and Discord to a moderate degree. This mention is merely a courtesy that some members do swear.
- Seeker of the Sun society has numerous topics that can be downright explicit or gut wrenchingly violent. We expect you to compose yourself with a certain level of maturity when these topics are broached, despite the general tomfoolery and joking around of the linkshell.
Ⅲ. We expect a reasonable level of participation.
- The staff will perform inactivity purges each week or every few weeks. If you feel that you were purged due to an error please contact myself or a mentor.
- You are welcome to bring guests to linkshell events! In fact, you are very welcome to. Please don't bring someone until you have informed X'shah or J'tehn. If those two are unavailable, please contact another mentor.
- We understand that certain individuals might be hesitant to jump in or timid about being a newcomer—we ask that you are mindful of this rule—and please show initiative or seek out a mentor (or the admin herself) to help ingratiate you or strike up one-on-one role-play as baby steps.
- If the other player is carrying the conversation IC and you are contributing little, this linkshell is not a fit for you.
- If you can't be bothered with standard punctuation and capitalization while role-playing, this linkshell is not a fit for you. (I don't care about how you type when not role-playing.)
- Do your very best to employ proper spelling while role-playing so that people take you seriously. Deploy a tool like http://www.rptoolbox.site/ if necessary and you know you aren't the best speller. If you are unwilling to meet us halfway and at least try, this linkshell is not a fit for you.
Ⅳ. This is not Party Grindr.
We don't care if our members ERP. It happens. People are free to do as they like. However:
- This linkshell is not a fit for ERP-centric characters.
- This linkshell doesn't exist for your character to score tail or find a romantic relationship.
- If you unironically call your character a futa, shemale, trap, loli, c*ntboy, or d*ckgirl this linkshell is not a fit for you.
- You are welcome to opt-in and utilize our affectionately nicknamed "#degeneracy" channel in the Discord to discuss sexuality and adult topics.
- If you advertise to the world in your search info that you are on the prowl for ERP (ex: listing f-list by putting /c/ in there, using sexually charged wording like "busty") this linkshell is not a fit for you. It's fine if you have listed something like "M/E/RP" but that's pushing it as it is.
Ⅴ. No poaching.
- Feel free to announce events that you, your linkshell, your friends, or your FC are hosting. Please ensure that tribal Seeker of the Sun can comfortably attend.
- If we notice that you are not participating in the community and are using it purely as an advertisement venue you will be removed.
- This linkshell is not intended for recruiting purposes.
Ⅵ. We are lore-bending, not lore-breaking.
- No half voidsents. No half succubi.
- No tempered or those that can temper.
- The echo is fine to a reasonable extent.
- No female Nunh. No female model Nunh.
- Voidsent beings, black magic, white magic will not be treated lightly and should be reacted to in accordance with lore.
- No halfbreeds. Keeper & Seeker mix is fine. Highlander and miqo'te/Au Ra and miqo'te et cetera is not.
- We discourage our members from promoting certain stigmatizing stereotypes involving Seeker of the Sun. Please refrain from "abusive nunh" backstories, nunh utilizing independent Seeker women as property and other related tropes.
A word on moderation style: this is a hobby. This is not a job. We aren't going to talk to you like we are robots, we'll level with you human-to-human. X'shah's (the linkshell administrator) personal moderation style, unless the offense is severe, is to lightheartedly ask that you stop the behavior. Attempting to engage in an argument with a staff member will be flat out ignored. Follow the rules. If you feel like a mentor has treated you unfairly or you take issue with a rule, approach X'shah and speak with her.
