“Cultivating Passion, Desire, and Decadence.” The Verdant Meadows <<VM:RP>> was created for those that find that character development and character interaction take utmost precedence when it comes to role-play of any kind. While our adult-theming of a "Pleasure House" comes with it's stigmas, it is our goal at The Verdant Meadows to contribute positively and create an experience focused upon the writing and relationships with both our members and the wider community. At VM:RP, our mission is to: Create an authentic, grounded experience that focuses upon the Pleasure House theme; where worker/client relationship focus upon the experience and character growth rather than a quick interaction. We, also, do not plan on expanding the theme beyond the business. This means no secret death cults or crime family using a pleasure-house as a front. Cultivate a community for both the Free Company and for the wider community. A place where The Verdant Meadows Lounge is seen as a home for our members and an entertainment and role-play venue for all players across the Crystal Data Center. For now, we're in a recruitment phase, so no public events are scheduled, but we'll be opening doors to the wider community soon! Become a venue to host private parties that collaborate between Free Companies or RP groups. The Verdant Meadows would play it's part in these events as hired Companions/Entertainers/Staff/Venue, but, ideally, would create a larger group RP event for all involved to enjoy. A good example of a cross-collaboration event would be a Bachelorette Party. What we're looking for: Companions of All Kinds: This isn't a simple courtesan role where you're character is to be treated like a product to be bought, but treated with dignity and respect. Events are lined up to give characters in this role the ability to further develop skills and talents: music, art, social etiquette, and, most importantly, how to defend one's self. In an IC capacity, our Companions have the freedom to select their own clientele: we hope this will encourage our Companions to feel comfortable including personal RP as apart of the larger "Verdant Meadows" story. Security (Limited Recruitment): Known as Custodians in our walls, the "security" role are individuals paid to see that our Companions are well protected within The Verdant Meadows and provide security should it be requested for matters outside of the pleasure-house. General Staff (Limited Recruitment): Not all who might wish to apply are interested in the "adult-theme" of The Verdant Meadows and, thus, we created the General Staff rank. We don't have specific positions to fill, but encourage players seeking this role to be creative! Chef, housekeeper, etc. It's a role to make your own. The Verdant Meadows is not interested in: Drama, Gossip, and/or Rumor Mongering: It should go without saying that these are undesirable traits. If you cannot share the spotlight, help foster inclusion with the members of this Free Company, or treat players as simply side-characters serving your OC’s story, then there will not be a place for you in The Verdant Meadows. We’re more than happy to bring the development you desire to your character, but not if it’s in a destructive manner. Being a Quicksands Alternative: The Verdant Meadows has an adult-theming, but this isn’t permission to treat it as anything less than any other Free Company. While we want mains, alts, and characters of any level, we’re not a place to park an inactive character. Furthermore, with a focus on character interactions and development, we’re not a place to get a quick ERP fix. Weekly "Life or Death" scenarios: High-stakes drama has it's appeal, but with The Verdant Meadows operating as a legitimate place of business, we are not looking to be besieged by voidsent weekly, participate in assassination plots, or constantly having members whom flirt with death while making it The Verdant Meadows' problem. If you're interested in learning more directly, the best way to get in contact would be to join our Discord Server or chatting in-game when online "Malcolm Wavrick"!

Red Lantern Society is tentatively opening it’s doors to players looking to explore content built by adults for adults. A delicate name inspired by the hanging crimson lanterns of Kugane’s own pleasure houses and districts, the Red Lantern Bordello serves as the focal point for the Society’s business – a brothel nestled in the quiet Lavender Beds, featuring breathtaking views both within and without. Founded and managed by Tsukiko Tanshi, an exile from the Far East who entered into the profession as a means of making sure both she and her father would never need to risk themselves in their refugee status, the business is built two-fold; to allow prostitutes, companions, and other variations of erotic workers or those who dabble in the business a place where they can work safely and without threat to their person, and giving those who have no place to go but offer skills that can support the brothel under the Silver Lotus Rehabilitation Clinic. Our desire as a free company is to add to the community in a positive manner; we’re adult-focused and aware of the stigma that comes with that, but we wish to bring together creative players and characters who are interested in not just participating in a brothel and rehabilitation atmosphere, but also engage with the community as a whole. We want to network, entertain, adventure, and just generally enjoy ourselves while maintaining high-quality interactions that leave those who choose to interact with us feeling comfortable about returning, and bringing friends. We are not an entertainment company in the grandest sense of the term. While we might hire a performer to entertain for a private party, we do not encourage the application of those who absolutely need a stage to stand on. We’re not a theater troop, we’re not a cabaret, we’re not a discotheque. Our entertainment comes in the form of quiet and intimate lounge nights where patrons can enjoy the company of those who work in the brothel, loaning out staff and services to other free companies who might need some extra hands for an event they’re running, exclusive and playful events where all business members can enjoy a night off while getting to know one another, and more – on top of the obvious. We’re small, and wish to remain such. We do not encourage the application of those who are looking for constant activity online – while we’re still figuring out just how many we want our ‘small’ to be, chances are that we will experience content and activity lulls harder than other free companies because we’re aiming for high quality over high quantity. We’re not looking for dramatics, and we are firm that our members are expected to maintain a positive face in the community, both in-game and on any media related to it. We’re adults entertaining adults, and expect all involved to behave as such. We’re currently looking for: ✓ Employees of all types - the dual aspect of the free company is intentional, as the business is built to be able to support itself while offering characters the opportunity to develop their own skills. Is your character someone who lost their job and needs a place to get some funds between work? A trader who knows how to find a good deal? A craftsman who needs a purpose? A mercenary who wouldn’t mind a stable bed and a good meal in exchange for keeping a few workers safe while they go about their duties? Get in touch! You do not have to play a sexual character to be in the free company, you just need to be okay with knowing it happens. ✓ Alliances and Associates – we’re out here to network and ally businesses together. We want to add flavor to other free companies with the same heart as us. Do your broody sea swabbies need a night of decompression at a comfortable place? Does your bar need a few pretty faces to sling drinks and get those meals out? Do you have a job that might need a bit more muscle than what you’ve got on hand? Look us up! We want to help build your stories and add to our own, and keep the world feeling a little more alive. ✓ Freelancers – already in a free company and don’t want to leave, but you want to explore that side of your character? Hey, we want to help that. Freelancers are pseudo-members of the business, and the pool that we dive into if we don’t have what a client needs, which is going to happen with our size. We don’t care what free company you’re in, even if it’s another adult business! We just want to help you get out there and have some fun in a different way. You’re never pressured to join, and you’re always able to decline an offered job. Get your role-play, even if it’s not your current FC’s focus! ✓ Community – we’re not interested in unfriendly competition. We know the market has plenty of adult-centered venues and free companies, and we want to work with them however we can to enrich everyone’s play. If we end up not being the right brothel for a prostitute or companion character, we want to be able to suggest another that might be more up their alley. When we have characters who have reached the point that it’s time to move on, we want to be able to help them connect with people who will keep that angle going, and we want to be on the list for people to feel good about doing the same with us. ✓ Roomies – if you’ve got yourself a character that is capable of making a room and you want to lend a hand, we’d love to take them in! Room assistants are OOC members (usually) who have kindly donated characters to help us build up private rooms that expand on the brothel and rehabilitation clinic, as we have a small plot and space is limited. We’re happy to help finance decorating, and have several crafters and gatherers on hand. Can’t think of an idea for a room but want to help? We’re constantly considering ideas, so if this interests you, just let us know! We’re not interested in: ✗ Drama & Gossips – we support in-character drama, we don’t endorse out-of-character dramatics. If you can’t play well with others, can’t share the limelight or take the time to help others who are struggling, you aren’t going to find a fit in the community we’re building. We are also very strict about our confidentiality and hold a ‘what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas’ mentality for a lot of what we do. What people come to us for is their business, and we expect our members to respect that. ✗ Underage Players/Characters – while we may sometimes run an event made for all ages (a good example is our Wolf & Rabbit hunt, which is a playful hide-and-seek in the open world), the business itself is by adults, for adults. We require anyone who enters into the building with the intention of interacting to be over the age of eighteen, both in-character and out, and this extends to prospective members as well. This extends to your guests, as well. Please, don’t put anyone in an uncomfortable situation, it’s not okay. ✗ Expecting Handouts – this is a big no-go. While we allow alternate characters as well as main characters, and characters of all levels, we’re not a parking space. Our small size comes with the expectation that those who want to be a part of the free company are willing to help build it up, and this goes even into Discord. We get that the head space for a character can leave as fast as it came around, but if the only time that you’re around is when there’s gil to be made or you show no participation in collaborative discussions, we’ll consider ourselves an ill fit and you’ll be dismissed. This did get long, so if you got through all of that, you’re wonderful. Have questions or are interested? Feel free to send me a PM here, or contact me on Discord @ Tsukiko Tanshi#9604. I’m happy to answer anything, or even begin networking!
