other [ The Celestial Dance Network ] - A tribal/traditional Seeker of the Sun & Keeper of the Moon community.
X'shah Zinbhe posted a topic in Linkshell HallThe Celestial Dance Network is a Crystal datacenter-wide community that serves as a hub to help tribal/traditional-themed Seeker of the Sun & Keeper of the Moon miqo'te role-players find role-play with other tribal/traditional-themed role-players. We offer a Crystal datacenter-wide Discord as well as two optional linkshells currently located on Balmung. We welcome miqo'te that are: Exiled from their people. Keeper and Seeker mixed. Have tribal/traditional roots. (Ex: Raised tribal/traditional, now a city miqo'te interested in exploring their roots.) Discord: — Join our Discord! You will land in a #lobby area. A member of staff will with you as soon as possible to tag you appropriately and send you to the main section of the Discord. ☾.｡.:* ★ What We Offer ★ *:.｡.☽ An environment that proactively strives to maintain a casual, comfortable, immersive atmosphere to build your character's story. Weekly gatherings to make contacts with new characters as well as other events that include themes such as sparring, story-telling, festivals, tavern RP, hunts, and more. A lore-friendly community with designated sections and channels exclusively for character-building, including but not limited to sept/clan-crafting, prompts, and lore discussion. ☾.｡.:* ★ Community Rules ★ *:.｡.☽ We are aware that our ruleset and tone section presents us as a strict community with high role-play standards. That simply isn't our intent and you will find, contrary to the language here, that the staff promotes an easy-going atmosphere. It's important to us that we explain our expectations and tone in a "no-nonsense" way so you can assess if this community is a fit for you or not. The reality is that we're a bunch of shy folks flailing around trying to get along, have a few laughs, and enjoy the game together. You and your character must be over the age of eighteen. Swearing, dark humor, dirty jokes, ribbing one another, and spicy memes prevail in the culture of this community. Topics of discussion from time-to-time may turn adult and tribal life itself isn't unicorns & rainbows IC. You can expect that adult topics will pop up in discussion or in role-play and we expect you to handle it maturely. In addition to our policy regarding minors and characters who are minors, all characters are expected to be no older, mentally or physically, than a wizened senior citizen at the very most. This is especially relevant if they're going to be romantically involved. Seven hundred-year-old "ten-year-olds" are not acceptable, nor is any other form of “loli” character, no matter how old they “actually” are. Leave personal differences and cross-server drama at the door. Every person who applies to the community will receive a fair shake. If they prove that they are not a fit for the community the staff will remove them. If you have a negative personal history with someone who joins the community before or after you — you are welcome to speak to the staff — but unless you provide compelling evidence you must accept that until they act out you have the option of blocking and ignoring them. There will be no Final Fantasy server drama or bashing in this community. No one server is "better" than the other. This is not Party Grindr. Let us be abundantly clear: we do not care if our members ERP in their own private time. This particular community is not a fit for ERP-centric characters nor does it exist as a venue to find a romantic relationship for your character. If you are going to be hosting 18+ events with sexually explicit and/or incredibly violent themes or you are going be organizing role-play that involves brothels or related "adult" establishments in-game—you must include a disclaimer in the advertisement or call for role-play. Transgender characters and players are welcome! We have transgender characters and players in our community, and out of respect for them ... No futa, dickgirls, shemales, cuntboys, traps, or similarly labeled trans-fetish characters. The staff considers these terms as "pornography categories" and they are typically used as beacons to find ERP. This is not a fit for this community and can be offensive to some transgender members. We will perform regular inactivity checks. This is nothing personal. We will occasionally remove members that no longer appear to be active and have zero presence in the community. The key is communication! Talk to a member of staff if you are going to be inactive or on hiatus. If you feel if you have been removed by mistake or wish to rejoin, all you need to do is follow the steps above to be reinvited. Be courteous of your fellow community members. Confine extensive discussion/spammy joking to Discord out of respect for the chat bar of other members. Be mindful of people who may have epilepsy in the Discord. Don't post gifs or imagery with rapid flashing that could trigger seizures. You are sharing the spotlight with other members. Keep in mind that most in the community has crafted their own culture, location, backstory, and headcanons for the branch or sect that their character is from. In order to avoid stepping on the toes of other community members, we ask that you not claim your character is the definitive tribe. Instead, we recommend an informal (or even formal!) nickname for their people based on your own preference. Do not project your own lore on established NPC's in-game. You can very easily craft your own branch of NPC's. This is not an echo chamber. Constructive criticism done in the spirit of civility is welcome in the community. If you want to start an in-depth discussion of politics and religion we recommend you find another outlet. The staff is not interested in moderating extensive political or religious debate. In fact, we don't care to moderate heated arguments at all. Take it to private message. Feel free to announce events that you, your linkshell, your friends, or your FC are hosting. We ask that you not use our community as an advertisement venue for other Discords, linkshells, or Free Companies. The nature of an open community such as ours presents the unfortunate reality that new members will join that may disregard the rules, are new to role-play, display poor role-play etiquette/quality, or they simply don't mesh with you and are not your style. We ask for your patience and understanding with us as well as we go through the process of serving as examples while they grow as a role-player, the staff speaks with them, or they are removed from the community. Communicate with us. We are human and might miss something. We cannot fix a problem if you do not come to the admin or mentors and speak with us. Weekly gatherings are community-focused events. Please run it by a staff member when you intend to bring guests to them! We ask you to put effort into your role-play. Please use spellcheck and use proper grammar/punctuation/capitalization to your best ability. No one is perfect and we all goof up, it happens! Respect the "tone" and vision the staff have for the community and role-play. If you role-play any of the bullet points disallowed in this section this is not a reflection on you. These are our preferences, it has nothing to do with you. We are lore-bending, not lore-breaking. We generally err on the side of lore when there is a question. In Character Actions = In Character Consequences. Things do not happen to characters arbitrarily. Every reaction your character receives is based —is not conducive to the specific tone we aim to set for this environment.off of how their actions are perceived by others. It is unrealistic to expect they will be universally loved for acting in annoying or aggressive ways. If your character gets into a fight, and especially if they do so often, do not expect them to get out of it without at least a few scratches. While this is a fictional environment, having characters who reliably get away with everything they do—physically, or in terms of their reputation Limited alt interaction is allowed, but discouraged. It shouldn't give either alt an undue or unfair advantage, or deprive other players of RP. Don't self-RP or use alts for self-promotion. No tempered or those that can temper. This is a rabbit hole that we'd rather not go down. The echo is fine to a reasonable extent. Voidsent beings, black magic, white magic will not be treated lightly and should be reacted to in accordance with lore. Female Nunh/Female model Nunh is not a fit for this community. This is not a statement on gender roles, transgender, or identity in the real world. Rather, Seeker society selects the strongest male to be Nunh. Even if such a character identified as male, their condition would be seen as an abnormality that would prevent them from ever being made Nunh, as the viability of healthy offspring is an important consideration in the selection of a Nunh. No incest role-play. No non-miqo'te species. This community is focused on miqo'te. Tone down the "abusive Nunh" trope. In this community, Nunh are family. They are trusted members of the community. We do not allow this trope to be prevalent in backstories as it is simply unrealistic to expect one man to completely dominate a tribe that likely outnumbers him fifty to one. A single man cannot control a host of strong, independent women. Yes, we know about Coeurlking, no, we don't care. The "alpha Nunh" and "beta Tia" trope is not welcome. We do not know where this trope came from, but in this community, it goes in the trash. Here, Nunh, Tia, and female miqo'te are equals who love and respect each other as family. A Tia is not 'below' a Nunh or for that matter a female Seeker. Birth control exists, women can have sex freely, there is plenty of evidence of strong adventuring Tia in-game as well as female Seeker being sexually liberated. Female Seeker outnumber male Seeker by quite a skewed amount—imagine how many propositions they receive. Finally, subhuman treatment of Tia would imply that the majority female society is accepting of it. This is insulting towards huntresses who grew up with sons, brothers, and fathers in their precious family unit. No halfbreeds. (Au Ra/Miq'ote, Hyur/Miqo'te, etc.) The chance of these happening is exceedingly rare. We don't feel it is fair to allow every player to access these—as it would no longer be rare. We don't consider Fantasia/race changing something that can happen IC. If your character starts speaking about a previous life of them being another race, don't be surprised when other characters IC think they're pants-on-head nuts. Sexually suggestive search information or those that contain f-list links (also represented as /c or /c/) are not a fit for this community. You have a limited amount of characters in your search information and it's telling when some choose to advertise their sexual preferences they have no business pushing on unwitting players—especially players that could be potentially very young due to the rating of the game. No overpowered characters. Characters who can casually wipe city blocks off of the map, time travel, teleport to other worlds, or withstand a haymaker from Titan will not be a good fit for this community. Such characters tend to pressure other players into making their characters that powerful, or risk being made irrelevant in combat RP. The general rule of thumb is that if your character's strength even approaches the WoL's, much less surpasses it, then they are too powerful for this LS. No cult-like polygamous role-play where the Nunh controls the Seeker women sexually. As stated before, the thought of one man controlling multiple women in a society where the women are both seen as equals and outnumber him is simply ridiculous. This will not fly here. No cutesy purring/nyah/meow behavior: This community is a conglomeration of warrior societies, not a furry convention. Behavior like this diminishes the gravity we are trying to cultivate, on top of being grating to a significant portion of our playerbase who may have joined this community to escape this behavior. Be self-aware. Do not make this community a hostile or intimidating environment for others, especially for the purpose of browbeating another member into ERP. We have noticed that the prevailing method of attempting to coerce others into ERP is not overt advances, but rather, a more subtle pattern of unwelcome misconduct or behavior that's based on sex and pervasive enough that a reasonable person could find it intimidating, hostile or abusive. Don't repeatedly have your character pursuing theirs if they aren't receptive. Don't comment on every screenshot of women (or even other characters) posted with how "hot" they are, etc. No miqo'te born in Othard/Kugane. No miqo'te that have spent over a decade in these lands. The staff has determined—as per the lore—that these types of characters are not a fit for this community. Trade with these lands has opened up in recent years—and indeed there are miqo'te with Eorzean totem there currently trading—so if you're character currently trades in these lands having newly sailed over they are certainly welcome. Being influenced by the various cultures of Othard is also welcome. Our community simply isn't a fit for miqo'te characters that were raised for any extent of time more than a few years in these lands, as per fitting the lore. We will not be accepting ancient Allagan experiments, extradimensionals, nor extraterrestrial characters at this time.
MoenMoen posted a topic in Linkshell HallMaelstrom Command RP LinkShell Community AKA <<FLEET>> Grand Company / Military / Law Enforcement / Adventuring We are a LinkShell focused RP community – meaning that while we do have a Free Company, no one is required to join the Free Company to be considered a fully fledged member of the community. You don't have to leave your FC friends to play with us! We're always accepting new members, and we love helping out with events for other RP groups too. For more info on how to join, or how to ask us to help out with you event, read the info below! (Last updated on 10/18/2018) Though we are a military group, our IC flavor is a little bit different than your typical military setup. In a nutshell, the Maelstrom is comprised of former pirate crews, each whom had agreed to serve whichever Admiral might be sitting in Limsa's high seat at the time. When Merlwyb won the most recent Trident competition, declared martial law, and essentially established herself as the permanent leader of the Limsan Navy, many former Knights of the Barracuda made the switch to the newly reestablished Grand Company of Limsa Lominsa (the Maelstrom). Overall, they're an organized military group, with a clear rank and uniform hierarchy, that operates in a slightly more chaotic good/chaotic neutral alignment than similar groups. OOCly, we are a largely community run group, meaning that the members are given as much creative power as they would like in creating events and deciding what direction we would like to go as a group ICly. We are constantly collaborating: planning events together, taking turns DMing, finding ways to tie our character's backstories together, etc.! Our focus as a community is to help each other move the personal stories of our individual characters forward, using the backdrop of Limsan lore and a loose military structure as a force that helps drive it all forward – with Sylb (MoenMoen) acting as the safeguard/protector, and the social main tank, for the community. We value quality over quantity, and real life events over RP pretendy time. Event attendance is never required! Above all else, we are determined to be a safe place to share ideas, grow as creatives, and to have fun, dangit!! We avoid drama like the plague, encourage one another, and have each other's back at all turns. As a bonus, we have cultivated an atmosphere that is a genuine safe place for members of the LGBTQA+ groups to hang out without worry of judgement or bullying. Who we are ICly: Officially commissioned personnel in the Maelstrom Grand Company! Maelstrom Soldiers Knights of the Barracuda Yellowjackets Foreign Levy (Adventurers) Privateers (Trade, War, & Black Sails) Mealvaan's Gate assessors Who we are OOCly: Friendly nerds who love to chatter and hang out and goof around! Human meme generators Housing fanatics Glamour savants Artists & writers Emoji addicts Mighty Punishers Interested in learning more? Check out our RPC Club page for the full deets on how to join:
Ever thought about meeting other mages? Discussing your passion for magic? Your love of casting? Your desire to research? Well, now you can! I’ve setup both an in-game Linkshell (On Balmung), and a discord server (Open to anyone from any server https://discord.gg/RVRjMfC ), for practitioners of all forms of magic. A place to discuss headcanons and lore, to make connections, setup roleplay and everything in-between. It’s early days, but if you’re interested at all PLEASE do join!
LINKSHELL LORE⸻OOC RULES⸻APPLICATION⸻THE CLOAK & DAGGER EBONGUARD is a lore-compliant hybrid IC/OOC criminal network linkshell on Balmung. While oriented primarily toward morally-ambiguous lawbreakers, the linkshell is open for any interested parties to join—after all, picking up the telltale black linkpearls is a simple enough task in and of itself… WHAT DO YOU MEAN HYBRID LINKSHELL? Ebonguard being a hybrid IC/OOC linkshell means basically: the linkshell is meant as an in-character means of communication and exists on an in-character level (as does the network itself), but OOC chatter is not only allowed but encouraged! While the linkshell has a Discord that all members are required to join in order to maintain membership in the in-game linkshell (as our Discord is where major announcements and the like are posted). having an OOC channel in-game is important for organizing and communicating with each other. However, RP over the LS takes precedence over OOC chatter, so members are expected to be polite and respectful if there is a shift toward IC happenings in the channel. WHAT IS EBONGUARD LOOKING FOR? Ebonguard is a criminal network LS, but it’s open for characters of all persuasions and alignments to join due to the fact that, well, it’s an actual linkpearl from an in-character standpoint. As a result, there’s no real restrictions on the sorts of characters we’ll accept. Anything that fits within the scope of the lore goes! This doesn’t mean that every applicant will be accepted into the linkshell, though, since the linkshell itself tends more toward grounded characters with fantastical elements in the background, as opposed to characters who spend every night trying to take over the world or signing a new Void pact. Due to the nature of the network, there’s no IC power structure, and so characters who fulfill any sort of role or archetype are welcome, from information brokers to honest thieves to sellswords and beyond. WHAT KINDS OF EVENTS DOES THE LINKSHELL RUN? Ebonguard has over the course of its run, done story-driven events, criminal shenanigans such as heists and cons, and social events geared toward letting members of the network get to know each other. We are currently looking at getting a longer DMed story going for the LS; for updates about it and to see what has been done so far, check out our scenario tag! The Cloak & Dagger is run by the leader of the linkshell and is intended to provide a hub for the linkshell members to use as they wish. It is located at The Goblet Ward 11 Plot 55 and is currently looking for volunteers who are interested in helping to run a public event on a roughly-monthly basis on Sundays (as schedules allow). For more information, please see this post! The venue is open for public use at all times regardless of membership status. IS EBONGUARD OPEN TO COLLABORATION WITH LIKE-MINDED INDIVIDUALS OR GROUPS? We would love to have the chance to collaborate with other groups, especially other crime-centered groups regardless of whether that’re free companies or linkshells. If you are interested in bringing Ebonguard along for a plot you’re interested in running or if you are interested in collaborating with a plot that Ebonguard is running, then contact us and we’ll see how best to work things so that everyone can have fun! (And toss you a link to the Discord.) WHO CAN I CONTACT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS? The officers of Ebonguard are willing and capable of answering any questions! We are: Leonnaux Altoix (contact first if possible) Aran Aethersmith/Lucien Korbinius Edda Vincents Gwannes Oskwell Additionally, you can contact us directly through the Ebonguard tumblr. We also have a club here on the RPC that houses updates prior to the Linkshell Hall being reinstated and our Crime of Opportunity prompts, which are prompts that we post to our Tumblr biweekly. They are free for anyone to use regardless of whether they're part of the linkshell or not, and they're free to be used however people see fit, so if you see one you like don't be afraid to take one!
