PostSubject: Windrose Scouts Signup   Wed Sep 02, 2015 6:59 pm

- The Windrose Scouts -
Link to approved IO application.

Founder
Russell | @Solilo

Second-In-Command
None Presently



Overview

An organisation that focuses on gathering information, the Windrose Scouts (WS for short) was formed by a Burmy named Russell, who dreams of creating a full map of the world. His reasoning for forming the organisation was to gather friends and allies who might help him achieve his dream, whilst he also helped them achieve theirs. As such, the WS doesn't just map the world, but they also investigate various mysteries and oddities that are found in the world, both in the name of creating a world map, and to discover the reason behind mystery dungeons and their ever changing properties which prevents such places from being mapped.


Features of the Windrose Scouts

Being so focused on gaining knowledge of the world, one of the WS's main purposes is to investigate various rumours. These rumours are posted on a board in the library and any WS member can take a rumour and invesigate it. Once the rumour has been investigated, the character(and as such their Rper) must produce report of a minimum of 500 words, documenting the rumour and clarifying whether said rumour had any truth to it, or was completely false. Each report submitted concerning a rumour is eligible for a reward, though it is encouraged to work in pairs and write a joint report if writing at length is harder for you.

Reports about rumours are not the only reports that can be submitted in exchange for various rewards. In their quest for knowledge of all places, members may also submit 'Basic Reports' about the general appearance, features and native populations of a specific dungeon. Basic Dungeons Reports are only eligible for rewards if they are the first report submitted for a dungeon, or happen to contain something that a previous basic report did not.

Another feature of being a member of the Windrose Scouts is access to the 'Collection Box', which contains items that can either be taken for free, or have a trade tag attached to enable simple trades between WS members.

Due to the investigative nature of the organisation, it is also possible that in the future, the Windrose Scouts may be responsible for discovering new dungeons through various WS exclusive mini-events. So if you decide to join, keep an eye out for those opportunities!

The Windrose Scouts are based in a secret location that will become known only to it's members and is referred to by most as 'the library'. This precaution was made to prevent outlaws from using the information they gain for criminal activities and the location itself serves as an archive for all of the information they gather, as well as a residential area for all of its members.

It is worth noting, that anyone who joins the Windrose Scouts will have their home dungeon automatically switched to the location of the library. This is not optional.

Short Version: Features;

• Exploring various rumours and phenomenon that are otherwise inaccessible.
• Forming reports based on your findings and discoveries in exchange for rewards.
• A mini trade center of sorts, catered to and exclusive to WS members.
• Potential mini-events exclusive to WS members.
• Discovering new dungeons.
• All members get a free personalised journal item.

 


Entry Requirements

There are a few requirements for joining the Windrose Scouts, including the form you will have to fill out a bit later if you decide you want to join. Most of these 'requirements' are things that need to be settled in-character because of the circumstance that surrounds WS and it's secrecy.

As such, you cannot have your character merely walk into the library and join like you could with, say, the Guild and one of the requirements for joining is that you must discuss with me, or another member, how you will find out about the Windrose Scouts. You will never be able to find out the location of the library before becoming a member so please keep that in mind.

To become a full member, your character must also undergo and complete a small challenge of sorts. These are not designed to be hard, and are more Russell's way of testing your character's, well, character. In-character, Russ will make up a challenge on the spot, but I will likely lay out a few options for you to choose from, and discuss with you beforehand what sort of challenge you wish to take.

There are a few more, solid rules that concern both joining the Windrose Scouts and being a members. These are as follows:


Out of Character Rules

  • » A member of the Windrose Scouts cannot be a member of any other organisation. This includes being part of a Guild.
  • » For a character to become a member of the WS, they must have some interest in exploring and discovering more about the world. As the head of WS, I will personally check character bios to make sure your character is suitable and that they aren't just being made to join so you as a RPer can gain the perks the WS offers.
  • » No outlaws can join. Characters who occasionally do something morally grey are fine, and reformed outlaws are fine. But no one who is classed as an outlaw will be accepted.
  • » Upon joining the Windrose Scouts, a character's 'home dungeon' will automatically become that of the library's location.

In-Character Rules
Note that breach of any of these rules is grounds to remove your character from the Windrose Scouts.

  • » Characters must report all their findings to the library. If you accept the role of investigating a rumour, you will be expected to produce a subsequent report. (This goes for OOC too.)
  • » Members must not reveal the location of the library to non-members, under any circumstance.
  • » Characters must complete one challenge, the nature of which will be decided by Russell, before they are allowed to learn the location of the library and become a full WS member.





If your character is eligible after going through those OOC rules, then feel free to fill in the form below! Please note that signups are a process rather than just a matter of 'accepted' or 'denied' and as such apps will likely be edited multiple times before they are approved. When a form is fully complete, I will do one of two things. If your form is accepted, your character's name will be included in an acceptance post that I will post in this thread. If your character is denied, I will likely message you the reasons why. I will not post in this thread to deny a form, so it is advised that you keep an eye on your PMs when waiting to be accepted. Denied signups will be deleted from the thread within a week of being denied.

If a signup has neither been approved or denied but is still in this thread, then it is likely that the RPer still needs to do the pre-joining Rps that enable their character to join. Or I haven't read it yet. The Rper will know which is true for them. ^-^'

Once again, to apply for a place all you need to do is make sure your character fits the prerequisites, and fill in the form below! Please consult the notes that follow the signup form before filling it in.

Code:

[size=11][b]» Character Name:[/b]
[b]» Original Bio Link:[/b]
[b]» Link to Character's Records:[/b]

[b]» Knowledge:[/b]
[b]» Challenge Complete?:[/b]

[b]» Challenge Thread Link:[/b]
[b]» Challenge Report:[/b]

[b]» Other Notes:[/b]
[/size]


Signup Form Notes;
- Please make an attempt to use direct character record links rather than broad ones, unless the character is the first to be posted in your records. This means that the link I click will sent me directly to the specific post that contain's the appropriate character's records.
If you are unsure how to do this, just edit the post with the appropriate character in, click send, and then copy the link in the address bar after the thread re-loads. The url should have a set of numbers following the thread name as it shows up in the URL.

- The 'Knowledge' and 'Challenge Complete' sections should be answered with either 'yes' or 'no' and should be edited accordingly when your character finds out about WS( for Knowledge) and when they complete one of Russell's challenges( for Challenge Complete)

- Challenge Thread Link basically just asks you to link the thread you completed your entry challenge in. Please use the [url=LINK] [/ url] codes rather than posting long thread links.

- Challenge Report is essentially a writing sample and must be 250 words or more. For it, you must write a report of the challenge that your character undertook in order to become a WS member. This field is here to prove that you can write the reports that investigating rumours entails. Please keep in mind that rumour reports are expected to have a higher word count of 500 words or more, so if you're feeling especially creative it is encouraged that you strive for at least 500 words with this sample.

- Any other notes to do with your character or their circumstance should be noted in this last section. Miscellaneous information that might be needed, or should be known. Such as, if your character was previously a guild member or is a reformed outlaw. Etc. Stuff I should know to be able to take into consideration when i'm looking through your bios just in case it isn't clearly available information. Stuff that could be key to leaning my decision to approval can also be noted here, such as traits that would make your character good for being a WS member etc.



If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me and I will add significant ones to an FAQ section in this thread ^-^
