Independent organisations, or IOs as they're also referred to throughout this thread, are a feature that was added to the site to create a wider variety of different roles for the site's various characters. This feature allows users to create their own organisations and thus no longer limits members to being only 'Guild Members', 'Outlaws' 'Shopkeepers' or nothing of interest.
However, with new features comes new rules to keep things fair for everyone. This thread contains the rules and guidelines for Independent Organisations as well as a list of all the current IOs.
Current List of Independent Organisations
Each of these will include a name and brief description of the organisation. New members can apply to be a part of these sorts of organisations when they post their first character, however they must bear in mind that some organisations have specific requirements for joining. To find out more about any organisation, visit the appropriate thread in this linked
If anyone has any questions about any of the listed organisations, it is wise to contact the user who heads the organisation you are curious about. The user who heads each organisation will be listed under the name, along with the character associated with the head or founder role and a link to their character records. Deputies/Second-in-commands will be listed underneath the heads once they are chosen.
As their base location is kept secret, WS members are normally introduced to the organisation through other characters. As such you will need to organize how your character learned of the organisation. The WS also require the completion of some sort of challenge before you are classed as a full member.
An organisation that investigates rumours, mysteries and oddities in the name of expanding their knowledge of the known world. Their ultimate goals are to create a map of the world and to discover how mystery dungeons work.
Members of this IO must take up a position in the kingdom that is suitable for the character, as those who don't do their share of work are not tolerated. Those joining this IO are also not permitted to affiliate with other IOs whilst they are a part of the Blacktooth Kingdom. A character that joins must also switch their home dungeon to the Black Spear Mountain Range.
A kingdom rules by a powerful queen, the Blacktooth Kingdom is a place where many can work in peace and not have to worry about a lack of food and dorm. So long as a pokemon seeks to live a peaceful and productive life, they'll be accepted with open arms. The mighty queen works to protect her citizens and empower her kingdom so that no pokemon ever dares to mess with it, to create a peaceful place where pokemon can live happily and without worry.
---Tribe of the Renewed LifeBreeze | @Silver
In order to enter the Tribe, one must first brave the Tribe's territory and the strong pokemon that live there, patrolling the borders to keep outsiders out. One must have a thread with the Tribe Leader, Breeze, to join the Tribe, in which she will have a discussion with your character to decide whether they are fit to join the Tribe.
An organisation that provides a sense of community and purpose in a world of chaos and darkness. The goal of the Tribe is to provide a purpose, light, and order to pokemon who are searching for something beyond their normal lives. Every action of a Tribe Member is for the good of the Tribe.
---The Steamrise InnIva | @Jax
In order to become employed at the Steamrise it is a two step process. First you must put in an application. You may apply for any position you think may be needed. If your services are not needed, you will be told such. After your application is approved you must have an IC interview with Iva, like a real job. She will decide whether or not you get the job.
The Steamrise Inn is the physical manifestation of a dream. It has been designed to be able to house nearly any pokemon, with towering ceilings, three stories of rooms and a cozy outdoor area for our larger clientele. If the Steamrise can't satisfy you we'll give you your money back! Equipped with a bath house, large kitchen and mess, fully stocked bar and a private beach, the Steamrise is the ultimate in hospitality! As an employee of the Steamrise Inn you will receive a monthly wage based on how many pages you've RPed.

Rules for Creating an Independent Organisation
- To apply to create an IO, you must be of at least Member rank on the site. This means you have at least 250 posts and your username is likely to be coloured light blue.
- The character that is the head/leader of the organisation cannot be a guild member or a shopkeeper at the same time as running your IO.
- Every organisation must name a second-in-command, or a 'deputy' once it surpasses five members. (These five members not including the IO's creator). In order to do so once your application has been approved and locked, just contact an admin with the details.
- If a deputy/second-in-command goes inactive, you will be required to select another one within two weeks of the deputy first going inactive.
- An IO will not be approved if there is already an IO that is the same, or too similar.
- IOs whose head and deputy go inactive will be archived and disbanded. In order to reform a disbanded organisation, you must re-submit an application form.
- After your IO is approved, you must submit a brief description of your organisation and it's aims, and a separate brief description of the entry requirements for your organisation to be added to the list of IOs.
- Optionally, you can also cite a colour that you'd like the name of your organisation to be coloured in on the list of IOs. When submitting a colour please use an appropriate hex code. (Should be formatted: #??????)
- All NPCs present as part of an IO must be applied for and approved separately in the NPC Applications board.
Guidelines for Creating an Independent OrganisationHow to Start an Organisation
Applying to start is probably the easiest part of running an IO. To do so, you'll have to fill in the form linked here
. However, there are some things you need to consider when starting your own IO.
First and foremost; what will your IO's aims be? If your organisation's aims are too similar to those of other organisations, then it's possible that your application will be denied. As such, it's wise to consider this first and foremost before building the rest of the organisation.
Once you've found your IO's aims to be acceptable and sufficiently different, you'll need to make sure you have a character who can run the organisation.Maintaining an Organisation
When creating an IO you need to be sure that it can run even in your absence, or if it is really dependent on your input, you must be sure to have a dedicated second-in-command. Organisations that are not maintained correctly will only fail and failed organisations are likely to be archived if they no longer serve any purpose.
The features you create for your organisation must all be approved during your application form, and if you wish to add any at a later date you must contact an admin to get the feature and your organisation re-approved.
Also part of maintaining some IOs are budgets, which require much time and effort to be put in by the founder and second in command of an organisation. To learn more about IO budgets and how you can get one, click here
