The Rangers Guild. (Please read first post, thank you)

The varied peoples of Middle-earth at times found unity in their pursuits, and all too often experienced deep rifts. Engage in lively conversations as we banter about the differences between the Alliances, and recruit for our People as well. Remember, keep it friendly.

The Rangers Guild. (Please read first post, thank you)

Postby Raistlin_warog » Sat Aug 21, 2004 3:52 am

Raistlin (the half beast or warog) leader of the rangers of the north went to find his old friends and loyal followers and make new friends, his plan was to go and defeat grauldimir a Fierce dragon who now inhabited The ancient lair where smaug once lived. He intended to overthrow lonely mountain and take the treasures of the dwarves, splitting it evenly between himself and fellow members of the quest but it would take hardship and sacrifice to get there and raistlin new it. He needed to find a sword that could kill the balrog: Alfarin, the balrog that killed his parents, it was rumoured to be in the dragon's horde, he would meet a dark elf on the journey: Daman who was in dire need of help, Raistlin and his companians would have to kill, the dragon, and the balrog, but then he would have to help his new friend daman and Daman's people...

Hey Raistlin I remember your free drinks. I mean I remember you.:P

I wouldn't mind joining this quest. Sounds like fun. Did you check to make sure there weren't any other threads like this first though?

I think there is some confusion here.

While "Lite" Role Play is not discouraged in existing Alliances or Guilds, it is not the main focus of this Forum.

Pure Role Play should be undertaken in either the Prancing Pony (for Tolkien themes) or the Green Dragon (for other, older themes that Tolkien drew on). In other words, if you are starting a new thread merely for role playing, you will have to use the Role Play forums.

I can move this thread if you wish. I suggest you read the Prancing Pony guidelines as well.

And Raistlin_warog, it is not necessary to invent a new ID to start another thread.

raistlin walks into the room slightly bruised,his hair singed and very tipsy and asks "can anyone..hic..fix swords? i got in a skirmish..hic..with a bouncer who happened to be a balrog and he stamped on my sword." He sits down with a sigh, falls off his chair and falls a sleep on the flour snoring loudly. This is a ranger who hasnt seen acction for a long long time.

Welcome to both djerna and yourself then.

To answer your question, yes, there can be light role play in a Guild or an Alliance. My point was that if Role Play is your only intent, which is how your opening post makes it appear, then this should have been started in the appropriate Role Play forum.

If you have read the Announcement at the top of this forum, then you are aware that the Alliances and Guilds forum will soon undergo a review and re-structuring.

If you wish to leave the thread here that is fine, it will simply be reviewed along with the rest of the Forum at that time.

I hope this information helps.

I don't know Raistlen. The Prancing Pony will require a longer more detailed introduction then that and your IC posts have to be fairly long. Longer then we've been doing at least. I suggest that you keep it here.

Well let me see. Your rp thing sounded good we could go with that at first. Its going to be a light RP of course so the posts don't have to be really long. We should some bios up though. Get the RP going. That should be good for now.

But still you need to decide if this is going to be a serious RP or a goofy RP.

Well the Green Dragon is almost the same as the prancing pony. Like I said I suggest we keep it here.

And here your not allowed to make ooc threads. Not anymore at least. There still are ooc threads but those are older and they are doing some houscleaning so no more ooc threads allowed.

Just post your bio. Then I'll post mine and whenever Riot comes on she can post hers. Then we start posting ic in this thread and we can make the ooc in this thread also. Oh and you need to put up that you have a new alliance on that sticky on the top of the forum.

Oh don't worry about it. I was terrible at this when I first started and I haven't really improved.:P

Ok you need to have the name of your charactor, your age, your appearance, personality, race, and a brief history. If you want you can include your abilitys and your weapons but thats not that important.

I can't believe I'm saying this..., but I think a Guild for Rangers is a nifty idea. You'll want to Edit your first post and add some rules and guidelines for members. Create a "Ranger's oath", perhaps a guildhouse, and a range of "levels" a member may attain. Ie; new members are "recruits", more experienced members advance to "forester"etc...
have the advancement be based on something that shows the poster knows somthing about the Dunedain and/or rangers in general.
Check out the firs post in thr Bards Guild and others for idead on how to set it up.
Then you go back and re-edit the first post whenever a new member joins or someone advances.

Yes indeed, the Edit function is your friend.

Good luck! (Good greif, an orc encouraging a ranger... :shock: )
