The Below is just a peak of what we are offering!
Norvalla is a roleplaying community that has given itself a theme of being a Charitable Organization that strives to bring good will and fortune upon those who have been forgotten and lost in the wake of the war between Eorzea and Garlemald. Out of character we hope to harvest, create, a work together with our members to make this a home that will stand the test of time. We strive to build ourselves up piece by piece and learn from the mistakes we make along the way. We plan to do player vs. environment content outside of our normal roleplay focused events. On top of all this we simply wish to make this a place where you can meet folks and make friendships that will hopefully last well after this game has come to an end. Welcome to Norvalla!
Roleplay System Version 1.0
Yes we do utilize a roleplay system that has been balanced to allow new members not to feel hampered against older members while still giving reward to those who are active within our community and participating within our events. Not only that our Activity Point Tracker is what shall gauge people's progression rank wise as well eliminating the status Quo of a leader choosing people to be promoted and hopefully eliminating the special treatment you often find in other systems that are simply regulated by 'leaders'. You gain levels, you gain abilities and you gain promotion opportunities as everything is tied with activity. You grow based on what you put into our community. We do use Character Sheets which our members DO NOT need to setup as leaders will do that for you, and you customize them the way you feel they should be. Failure is less common in our system as well which once you join you'll see the detailed system information within our forums.
Our Community wishes to bring New Members into the fold at a lot quicker pace. We don't want people feeling disconnected, out of place or feeling as if they need to struggle their way into the group. So when new folks join us they will be paired with one of our Knights (or above). Our New Members will start as Recruits but after a little bit of time they'll be promoted to the Rank of Squire. As they progress they'll be taking on small assignments with their Mentor and taking up larger missions with the entire Free Company. This process is in place so when the New Member becomes a Full Member (Knight) they'll be able to Mentor a new member themselves. This process we hope will help fight against the formation of Clique's (We understand they cannot be entirely stopped but we will be actively trying our best to slow their growth).
Member's that just join our ranks are initially marked as a Recruit. It is here they are introduced for a short period to our community, delve into its confines and learn about how things work. During the period on which they are a recruit we plan to engage them, get them involved day one into a Mentor Program which Recruits and Squires alike are assigned to a Knight individually or at times in Squads depending on the number of Knight(+) we have available. After you achieve a certain amount of AP (Activity Points) you will be given a ceremony on which you will be elevated to the rank of Squire. The follow will explain each of the ranks a little better but it is very important to understand that your out of character rank is 'New Member' and your in character rank differ's.
Recruit - Brand new member to Norvalla. They have been interviewed, processed and assigned a Mentor. The first rank of many that a member is granted and a rank that helps identify new faces to the Free Company so current members can provide aid and welcomed greetings.
- Squire - The Second Rank a Member will Achieve. This rank is a representation of the dedicated efforts of a New Member, their progress through our system and their understanding of it. They are engaging other's and are a part of the community (Involved in events with and without their mentor, joining the Main Story Event and Social Events too!). They are well on their way to becoming Knighted.
When you achieve the out of character rank known as 'Full Member' you have now entered the rank of being a Mentor and someone that can be looked upon as a guiding force for our community. The first rank you achieve as a Full Member is Knight. Knighthood is important as it opens doors for you to host events with new members, lead in character and provide solid feedback to leadership to help and aid in Norvalla's Growth. You are a beacon of a future that has yet set its course. From Knight you will advance to Knight Lieutenant where you will be granted access to leading a Small Squad of New Members in times when Knight's are in short demand. You can take new members on one-shot missions leading them into the fray against Bandits, the wilds or even providing succor and respite for the lost. You are nearing the end of the Full Membership Status for when you leave Knight Lieutenant behind you enter the Status of Veteran Member. The following is a brief Synopsis of the Full Member Ranks.
Knight - Your a full member now and with it comes the opportunity to lead new members into the greater aspects of Norvalla. Just as you had been raised by a Knight (or higher) you will be given the opportunity to meet someone new, engage them in RP through interactive missions and develop them into a strong asseset for Norvalla's cause. You will also at times take point in Story Missions and will be a guide for the future success of the Organization.
- Knight Lieutenant - You have risen yourself to a prominent role within Norvalla. You have trained, honed and introduced new faces into the ranks of Norvalla's old guard. You will be looked upon for future leadership roles as you continue to grow and continue to aid in the mentorship of new members alike. You may be at times asked if you'd like to raise a Squad (A group of Squires / Recruits) in times when Knight's are in short demand and may even lead missions in the Main Story Event or side ones.
Veteran Member's have been with the Free Company for sometime and have gone through the paces. They have seen what is successful and what isn't. Due to this not only will new member seek their guidance, leadership will often go to them and inquire their opinion, their perspectives and their advice. They have the eyes and ears of the community upon them as they have demonstrated loyalty, commitment and a passion to remain with the collective. They have groomed, helped bring in new members and have been a willing participant to many events, stories and affairs. These individuals are the roots of the community where as the Full Member is the trunk and the New Members the Branches. Veteran's start off at the rank of Knight Captain and can work their way up to Knight Commander. Conclave Members fall within these ranks as well, however they have taken on more out of character responsibilities and commitments giving them the out of character rank of Conclave Member rather then just Veteran Member. As stated Veteran Members are very important and in some way an extension of the Conclave itself.
Knight Captain - A commanding role among the Membership of Norvalla. Not only have they been around for a considerable amount of time but they have also put in the paces and have helped many Eorzean's during their travels. They've taken on tasks, faced challenges and have been a presence among Norvalla for sometime. They mostly take point in Missions and are sought out for their experienced council.
- Knight Commander - The pinnacle of the Norvalla Structure. They are a commanding presence in keeping Norvalla on task. They understand the mission better then anyone as they have faced the horror's of those who suffer from them. They are leaders among the members and even though there may be a day when there are Multiple Commander's does not diminish this rank. They are often Kind people who welcome new folks alike while remembering where Norvalla has been and their advice, their words and their council are always appreciated.
