---------------------------------------

GENERAL SYNOPSIS
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!

 

It is important to note we do utilize a RP System that utilizes Character Sheets and /random. The system is designed to keep new members and old members practically in line with each other but reward people for their own character strengths and weaknesses allowing people to be stars in critical moments during our story telling process. It is also our way to measure activity by rewarding members with AP (Activity Points) which will be the main factor when it comes to promotions. We've decided to promote people based on what they give and provide the company and eliminated the 'Special Treatment' that often occurs in companies where friends are the only ones promoted (Obviously if your in a FC you should be a friend but were more concerned with special treatment of 'Close' friends). We believe in transparency and this is one of this mechanics that keep things fair and even across the board. Also our /Random system has a greater success rate for characters then standard dice systems where its primarily off the number game.

 

OUR ORIGIN

Norvalla is born from the single idea that those who are forgotten should not be. To serve the people who are displaced by war, who are victims of famine, who suffer losses and who are forgotten by the Hero's and Lords of the land during this tumultuous period of strife. Three individuals came together to craft the Idea that would be seeded as Wanderlust first but would begin to grow into the Organization known as Norvalla. Ayame Tatsuya, Kodama Tatsuya and Yezekael Telesphore are those three individuals who had decided the average day to day labor's of being Mercenaries was not enough and so the idea of doing work for good and charitable cause was the better of the two paths. Of course this is still akin to the work Mercenaries would take, however the way on which individuals are paid for their work is much different.

 

As the seed grew so did the structure of which Norvalla would stand upon. Having a need to keep some resemblance of order among the projected goal of the organization a rank structure was formed. Where new members would be welcomed within the Free Company by being a part of the old guard and assigned someone of the Knight Status and Above. The goal of this assignment is not to place command over the new person but to give them an immediate connection to the Organization. To help integrate new folks and give them a way to engage immediately.

 

OUR EVENT SCHEDULE
Currently we are just recruiting and doing Light RP. Once Shadowbringer's has been out for a week we will be hosting regular events weekly and biweekly. The following is what we plan to host throughout a month.

  • Main Story Event (We are utilizing the world as our Canvas!)
  • Training Events
  • Promotion Ceremonies
  • Player Vs. Environment Events (Map Runs, Raids)
  • Social Gatherings
  • Mentor Events (Which are organized into our Academy!)

 

New Member Ranks.png

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 differs.

 

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.

 

Full Member Ranks.png

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 asset 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.png

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.

We have recently added a few new faces to Norvalla! We are proud and pleased to welcome Aerdyn, Dredly & Mikh (Meekah) to our home! We are looking forward to adding more new faces, new players (as well as old) into our growing RP community! Our focus once the first week of Shadowbringer's is done is to get back out into the open world and contend with the issues that are growing within Eorzea!

@Darshendros the Eternal Your solid and I'd recommend you 10/10 no sweat (I mean how can I not one Elezen to the Next!).

 

Also I understand there are a lot of Free Companies out there and many with rich histories but we do promise a unique experience one that will enrich our members with a deep growing storyline that will peel back the layer's of the world around us. We do work in accordance to the Main Storyline, however we never interact directly with that Main Storyarc that the Warrior of light walks. We currently after a week of Shadowbringers being out plan to deal with the 'Thinning' of Aether and contending against a Mysterious force that works in tandem with the forces that are effecting the world (but on a much smaller scale). 

If your looking for Open World RP - Looking to delve into Combat, Investigations, and other various Situations please come check us out. Our Unique Pen and Paper System is extremely forgiving and caters strongly to RP and Storytelling. The dice in our system work based on a Success and Failure ratio rather then a straight numerical one. New members and Old members do not have massive gaps between them and our abilities in our system are designed to allow you to customize your play the way your character is built. So please come check us out I promise you wont be disappointed.

Welcome to Norvalla! We have grown some since we've last posted and we super excited to really start pulling back the skin so-to-speak on the first event that'll chart our story as a FC. If your interested in engaging us from the ground up now is the best opportunity to meet other like minded individuals who wish to engage the world as it is intended and not hide behind the doors of some Inn or Tavern. TO get their weapons used, their wits sharpened and their skills honed!

We are super excited to announce our Second part of our Prelude to Season 1 of our Free Company's Storyline has gone off without a hitch! We had a total of 9 members join us on our journey as we investigated a mission Brass Blades Squad in Pearl Lane. It was a great test to our system and it seems to have gone off well allowing our members to engage the world around them, obtain information and share what they wanted and how they wanted. We are definitely looking forward to this Friday as we delve finally into Chapter 1 of Season 1!

Norvalla would like to congratulate two of our newest members, 🍾Sailis and Unika💐 in their Eternal Bond. Thank you for letting us enjoy that moment with you both!

 

As Yezekael pointed out, above, we had a great time Saturday, with the roleplay. Talking with others, we found ourselves very involved in the story. By being this involved, it has given us more depth, not only to our Characters, but also to our Story. Some of us have been working on investigating further, the mystery that has begun to unfold before us, individually and in pairs. These investigations done outside the event/mission times, is great fun. Now we will hopefully get to compare results and find out how close we are to being accurate!

We here at Norvalla have gone through a significant change! One that some may view as negative but we here at Norvalla we have always been about Open World RP, Creation of character stories, Adventure and not hiding away in our free company day in and day out. We also believe in transparency and being open about the things that go on within our home as its important people know exactly what they are getting into. Some may think this is a foolish way to recruit being so honest but not me. We had a recent exodus of folks who did not agree with the direction of our company. Our direction has always been this:

Open World RP
Adventures
Charitable Work
Pen and Paper-like System
Unique Roll System (Uses Success / Failures rather then a flat d100).

Norvalla was born from another Free Company which had existed for about a month prior. It was not going anywhere and when Norvalla was created from a previous 'birth' it started to see members join, events created and structure built. Individuals did not agree with this and thus we had our exodus. There were other issue's but those I'll keep in the past. If you join you will be joining a Free Company in the process of rebuilding. Joining a Free Company at the ground level is such an awesome opportunity to find yourself to be apart of something great and a great chance for you to make it something you want to be a part of! We also are introducing a meaningful way for 'New Characters' to find a path as well in our home with the introduction of our Academy. The Academy helps provide skills, knowledge and so forth through field examinations, studies and what not helping lead them into doing the labors that more 'experienced characters' will do from the get go. This allows everyone who joins us a chance to make a name for themselves as well as focus on the creation, development and building of their new character providing them ways to garnish experience.

We here at Norvalla are still growing! We have been hosting atleast one RP event a week up until recently (This post) and have plans to extend our events now from 1 RP event to 1 RP event and 1 PvE Event. We do believe that RP communities still should be invested in the game and still should enjoy the experience of gearing up, doing seasonal events, helping one and another with map runs, gathering Ponies, birds and doggies and so forth. If your looking for a Free company that'll not only provide excellence in story telling but one that'll play the game with you come check us out!

Phase1.png

We are currently on Phase One of the Norvalla Project! We are excited to break down our growth pattern into what we have (2 phases!) The first phase is the most important as it will help us establish a foundation on which we can stand. Plus its always important to build a core fundamental group on which you can expand, grow and ensure like minded individuals (not zombies!) are working together to have (what is most important) fun! So we'll be using an RP system, Building Events both PVE and RP and Recruiting. When we get to a certain member count and activity percentage we will move onto Phase Two which will invoke more concepts and increase RP events. We will be focusing too on character story arcs (Your personal stories) so get them up on our calendar and let people join you on your own story while we build - and Join others too!

Hearing the call for action over the linkshell members of Norvalla gathered up at the Shroud where they would meet up with Ryslo Suramlo to see about handling a task that involved the sightings of corrupted elements that have been causing havoc within a very specific area of the shroud. It was a relatively simple task laid out before them and one that had very specific and forward details on how to handle it. The members would lay out a trap and lay low waiting patiently to see if they could gain an element (no pun intended) of surprise over the culprits (the corrupted Elements). So the members broke themselves up into smaller groups hiding among the tall grass and brush located in the general area. Each member making their figure and form as small as they could keeping to the shadows and to the natural cover that was given to them.

While they laid low the members spoke softly over the pearl as the cover of night protected them mostly but seem to also provide assistance to the identification of the corrupted aetherial forms of the energy based beings that are the elements. Llanore and Arnivdar had notice them moving about first along a western ridge and soon Noir, Lucas and Sulwyn had made note that they had seen movement to the north not to longer after the previous sighting. Confirming this Fjola would denote clear enough confirmation that the sightings are / had moved to the north. They were moving on the group unknowingly to them (The elements), however poor Llanore was unable to stay well hidden as the elementals charged her position and attacked. This sudden engagement threw Llanore off and she had taken serious enough injures on the opening volley.

Soon Sehra and Linelle along with those proficient in melee stances engaged the elemental forces as a battle commenced. The corruption of these elemental beings must have weakened them rather them empowering as they combat would be swift enough that no further injuries to the group (other then Sehra having taken some damage from one of them) would be done. As the elements fell in combat (knocked out in a sense) the corruption faded and combat would end. The members of Norvalla took a moment to speak with each other before heading back out having achieved their task. Ryslo would hang back and inform the conjurer's guild of the three entites left behind so rituals could commence to not only appease the elements of the force but to ensure the wounded elements would be restored to their proper state.

We had great fun tonight in the newest of our adventures! 

 

I borrowed the following from our forums. We record our events so as to actually build a living and referable history for both our members and Norvalla itself.

This synopsis is barely a taste of what actually went on, but you can't expect us to share too much or you might not come visit!

A relaxing day at the company house was quickly shattered as some visitors came to the door. It turns out they were Maelstrom soldiers, and they were here to arrest Arnvidar! After the others rushed to his defense and tried to fight with words to get him back they began poking holes in the Captain's story that he wanted to take the man all the way to Gyr Abania to stand trial, instead of just throwing him in a prison in Limsa. The Captain quickly retreated, and after taking some time to question the shocked Maelstrom guards, they gave chase.

Only to discover the worst case scenario. Garleans. The Garleans quickly escaped, with Arnvidar and Mikh, in tow as prisoners. The group engaged the remaining Garleans. Despite their professional military training and experience in war, the heroes of Norvalla managed to easily shatter their formation and break them apart. After defeating them, and taking three captive, they decided to hurry back to lick their wounds and prepare a rescue operation...
