Currently Recruiting 12 Members (Active) to fill our Current 4 Squads.

CLICK HERE TO FILL OUT AN APPLICATION

 

Our Community is being created to bring to life a living, breathing and interactive story telling experience where each player will have moments where they are highlighted and moments where everyone is at center stage. Where you feel engaged immediately with the community and where you can learn, develop and grow within the lore that Square Enix has provided us. Not new to the lore? Wonderful as you grow in our community through progression, meaningful rp encounters and involvement you will be able to help shape the future of our community by hosting varying events of both Adventure and Training. 

 

Now Recruiting for Crossworld Linkshell (Activity will still be monitored, Character Sheets Still used, Discord still accessible and all RP done on Mateus).

 

Where did Oracles of Empyrean get their Concept?

So we intend to run this very akin to how a Jedi or Sith Guild would in a Starwars game except we will be utilizing the Mythos of Final Fantasy, Eorzea and Othard. New members will be assigned to 'Core Groups' which will help them grow, develope and learn the methods of the Oracles and when they achieve the rank of Acolyte they'll be assigned to a specific Oracle. They will host individual training sessions / missions for their Acolyte and record the encounters on our site. Each Sunday we will calculate your attendance and give out Skill Points on which you can spend to grow your character - Eventually your character will achieve one final rank before making it to Oracle on which they'll be faced with Five Trials. These Trials will determine whether or not your character (RP Method) is ready to become a full fledged Oracle on which they can then help foster the future as the Oracle that had been responsible for their care had.

 

Why all these steps? Ranks are important but story is far more important to us. This method allows us to help keep people on the same footing, ensure standards are met along the way and that everyone is treated the same. We want people to feel connected to others and we want this legacy to be built. As you rank up you'll be highlighted by attending beautiful ceremonies and as you grow through all these methods your character too becomes an ambassador to our home. In the end we want to make sure we can tell a story and one that we all can be proud to retell. Memories are far more important to us and the trip we take then whos on top and whos on bottom.

Initiate
2 week Trial Period - Assigned a Squad

 

This rank is our starter position within our organization. Those coming on board will be given a in character meet up prior to being invited to get that in character connection started. Next once invited they’ll assigned a Squad. Squads are led by an Oracle. In these squads they’ll be able to go on small missions (small events) doing anything from escorting to hunting. General good work which will build the immersion of the world up while building connections with your fellow squad mates.

After two weeks of activity you will be promoted to Acolyte. A sign you are a full member with our company at that point.

 

Acolyte.png

Acolyte

Full member rank - Continue progression

 

As an Acolyte you will be still attending squad events but also allowed to attend the free companies main story events as well. You will continue to work on building a connection with your fellow squad mates. This rank is all about charting your path, building further bonds with your free company mates and finding your niche among the collective. 

Once you acquire a cumulative of 60 skill points you will be eligible for promotion.

 

ADEPT.png

Adept

Veteran Member- Undergo Trials - Path to Oracle

 

As an Adept you will be experienced enough to finally undergo a set of five trials. These trials will make sure (in character) your ready to lead your own squad or at least make sure your ready to bare the title of Oracle. You’ll still attend squad events, free company events and as said the special trial events.

 

Trial of Knowledge - an event will be organized to introduce some final fantasy lore into your characters journey. These events will reflect the past but they don’t necessarily have to recite lore simply reflect it. Perhaps journeying through some old ruins, walking a path well traveled or even visiting a place where the Oracles had treaded before.

 

Trial of Self - by this point enough should be known about your character that a small event can be held where your character squares off against something that haunts them, some unfinished business or perhaps just dealing with an issue that had come up prior. This trial is very focused on you the player, a small event with you as the star.

 

Trial of leadership - you’ll take point during a mission. You will be assigned the leader a night, making decisions and orchestrating others. Success or failure this trial is meant to give you as a character and player insight on the day to day of an Oracle.

 

Trial of communication - more of an ooc event. You’ll get together with your Oracle and they’ll go over the procedures that they need to do weekly to best arm and prepare you for the next stage. Showing you the forums from their perspective, going over mission requests and logging attendance. Very important trial to arm you with needed knowledge.

 

Trial of the Empyrean - the last trial. This is an event that will be organized anytime there is someone ready to take this trial by an Empyrean. Your Oracle and Yourself will wear for this event special robes created by the organization to undergo a ceremony that is special to you and your Oracle. A final farewell for the Oracle and their squad member as you will be granted at the end of this trial the rites to be promoted to Oracle. A separate promotion ceremony will be held in front of everyone to honor the moment.

 

ORACLE.png

Oracle

Squadleader - Mentor Rank

 

Oracles are the free companies mentors. They lead squads, run small squad missions and record attendance. They are in charge of small groups but also a part of the governing body of the organization as they will be invited to meet with the Empyreans twice a month to go over progress, present ideas and influence in character direction for the oracles labor. They are also responsible for providing information about members (how they are progressing and so forth).

 

This is a vital role as we will only open recruitment based on how many Active Oracles we have and how active their members are. They are also important as they work with other squads to ensure they have cooperation being bred and making sure if one of their members can attend an event they are hosting that week that they convey to another Oracle if they can take said individual for their day of training that week as to ensure everyone has ample opportunity. It’s part of the reason a squad will only ever comprise of 4 slots (that includes the Oracle).

 

Oracles are invited to tough events every other week that’ll be hosted by the Empyreans as this is meant to tether the Oracles with the Empyreans. Plus important too as the Oracles are tethered to their squads. Very important this cycle as it keeps everyone connected.

 

EMPYREAN.png

Empyrean

Member of the conclave - Administrators

 

Empyreans work for the collective not the other way around. What do we mean by this? They strive to crest custom content for the free company - they work on recruitments, interviews, trials, Oracle missions, and the Main story event. They also run website administration and discord. 

 

Also responsible for running a squad and following the same guidelines as previous ranks. While each Empyrean is responsible for all that has been noted including administration of peer to peer issues the following are what each Empyrean will be focused in.

Once more Norvalla mobilized to the shroud to aid this time a local garrison that was being stretched thin. The guardsmen at the location had been doing around the clock guard duty protecting the Twelveswood from various intruders as well as vigilantly staying observant of strange noises that were occurring on a nightly basis for over a weeks time. Exhausted and growing sloppy Norvalla was hired to alleviate the guards by taking a shift for an evening to keep vigilance over the shroud just North East of Fallgourd Float. Norvalla had a great showing for something that appeared to be a relevantly easy task. So they split up into 4 teams and spread throughout the outpost to ensure they would be able to watch every angle they could. The teams were as follows:

Fjola Eryut worked alongside Malachar to the South side of the Outpost.
Sarah Muril worked alongside Shar Dotharl to the west just outside the Outpost.
Llanore Aldavaul worked alongside Soroix Proctie along the rampart to the west.
Ryslo Suramlo worked alongside Noir Ackerman & E'tihl Tia to the East.

These teams would throughout the night identify movement and heard the eerie sounds of an echoed wail that moved about the shadows on which the branches of the woven canopy casted. Only the large pallid glow of the moon over head provided them any means of sight. One after another starting from the west, moving along the south and finally to the east they each identified a unique characteristic of what was prowling about. It was at the east where the attack was sprung and a large Ahriman appeared ravenous and hungry it did not hesitate with its aggression. Slowly the entire group moved toward the direction of the conflict with a second Ahriman revealing itself behind Malachar's group. With two of these winged monstrosities present everyone moved in to engage. The Combat was long but thankfully the group managed to fight these creatures back and eliminate the threat.

Hope you enjoy what you see and will come visit, perhaps even stay!

Finally after a week of preparation it was time for the heroes of Norvalla to save the day. After an, admittingly foolish plan, took place Arnvidar was taken captive willingly. Legatus Remus taking him prisoner. In exchange for a lack of an all out assault, murder, and chaos all around Remus offered them a contest of sorts to earn the boy back. And so they did exactly so. All the while the Legatus watched and studied the group, wondering why Arnvidar had put faith in these people over any other. A more traditional standing military even.

Remus finally got his answer. They demolished the challenges with ease, each one allowing a different member of Norvalla to open their skills up. After finally rescuing the two, Remus hold true to his word and allowed them to go free... but not before he shot Doctor Titus dead, ending the project forever...

Again Norvalla heeded the summons to come to the Shrouds aid - This time they sought out a new fledgling among the Wood Wailers. A young girl who went by the name of Mora Greensword. She was a Highlander, rare as it is for their kin to become Wood Wailers let alone live within Gridania considering the rich history between Ala Mhigan's and those of the shroud. Not because they are not allowed to live in the shroud but they are often met with old prejudices that are hard to die or to be forgotten. With her being accepted into the Woods Wailers it was a big deal and a great achievement for her family, yet her being taken captive by a group of poachers would certainly stain that achievement with failure and could put the family in harms way - from those said prejudices that always linger there on the surface. Not only that but the Wood Wailers themselves could not act, not directly since they didn't have proof enough to convict the 'poachers' on the kidnapping nor could they lable them poachers yet without solid proof of them doing just that.

Hence why Norvalla got involved. They were a third party and with connections to the shroud from a few of its members the had enough clout to take this task on without upsetting the balance of things between the elements and Gridania. They met up, gathered and ventured forth. At first it was a stealth operation and they made it really far into the fortress until a few poorly timed moments of bad luck hit them and the guards became away of their presence. The rest of the encounter would be a hard press fight with Norvalla coming out on top but nearly losing the objective when the Hostage had nearly passed away from a inflicted wound done by those who had captured her. Managing to stabilize her wound Norvalla took her to the nearest outpost to be tended to properly while they had also managed to secure a few of the poachers for questioning as well as conviction. Roric had also discovered a missive which linked the poachers to a slave trade.



Next day Mora Greensword sent a letter via Mog Mail to the group--

"Thank you Norvalla for rescueing me last evening. As you can tell I'm alive and well thanks to your quick actions and to the skilled practitioner's of the Conjurer's Guild. I just wanted to express my graditude which I fear I may never be able to do so properly but.. thank you! From the bottom of my heart thank you."

We had 13 members actively participating this evening within the event plus we have 24 truly active members in our home with 7 alts in our community. We hope to hit 30 active members soon as we feel an active community is a healthy one and since we have a RP system and events running very often cliques do not seem to be an issue at all!

Recent Announcement on our Discord that we are proud to share!

We just added a NPC Page to our Website as well! This is where you will find gathered information about NPC's you have all run across (Major NPCs Only) and a place to keep new players informed as well so they are not completely lost as our story grows larger and larger. Each season will have its own unique NPC page, Chapter Pages and so forth. We really want to drive home the message that Norvalla is all about that Roleplay. Right now we have information on Yorah but soon will have Information about Remus as well! Definitely look forward to the work and events we've got in store for everyone!
