Greetings Kelon. I'm actually reworking the guild page so don't be surprised if this thread gets deleted as I can't seem to edit the original post for some odd reason.

The guild website likely won't go live until this weekend.

In the meantime, I'd love to know what drew you to the guild.

That's fine, I'll be happy to have a look at your website when it's ready. I basically had a look through the DC guilds today and found that your guild interests me most because it's based on role playing a band of Knights that work together for a common goal "peace and prosperity". Have a look at my short little introduction to my character.

Kelon seems to be a perfect fit for the Crusaders :) note that not all Crusaders must be knights. Crusaders come in all sorts of forms... some may act as spies and look like beggars... it's not how you present yourself, it's your actions that make you a Crusader.

That being said, the knights at the forefront are the most representative and for Kelon, it makes perfect sense to stand proud in armor and possibly the white hawk emblem of the Crusaders upon his shield.

Welcome aboard, shield brother.

You've inspired me to post something about my character as well... I'll have to get to work on that.

Thank you. I was wondering a little bit more about the guild though. What's currently being worked on other then the website? (Ranks, wiki, etc?)

To be honest, not much is being worked on aside from the website/lore and graphics for the site.

Given the guild's lore, I take it you have no problem with Kelon having been an orphan who was raised in the orphanage of Whitehawke to be the man he is today, choosing to become a Crusader?

Alright, well I guess we can get to ranks and other things later then. What are your ideas about the lore? I'd be happy to help.

As for the Guild's Lore.. and my character that will work fine.

The lore is just what's posted above. Basically, the town was started as a keep, run by a female Knight named Lady Aribethia Wyath. She served as Knight Captain over a small band of knights. They raised the orphanage, which took in the children of soldiers who lost their parents.

Lady Aribethia ran both the orphanage and the knights who still went out into the land and did their good deeds, but Whitehawke was growing from a keep into a township. Over time, the knights who had become known as The Band of the Hawk got older but raised the orphans with skills and the morals of knights.

While some children who grew up there became members of the town working as blacksmiths, cooks, whatever... others who were more skilled at combat became mercenary 'heroes for hire', representing the Band of the Hawk. The white hawk emblem was a trusted symbol. These mercenaries went out, did good, got paid, brought funds back to Whitehawke to help pay for the orphanage, the new group of orphans and the town itself. This was very much their home so they wanted to take care of it and the orphanage that gave them the life and skills they had.

Meanwhile, descendants of the original knights like my own character, Ayden Wyeth who is Lord of Whitehawke continued in the traditions of their ancestors for the most part as leaders of the Band of the Hawk.

Now that Tamriel is in a bit of upheaval, Ayden called upon any willing members of the Band of the Hawk to take up noble arms not for money, but just because it's the right thing to do, and become CRUSADERS who would help all and try to make sure that whomever took the crown in the coming war would be a good and just person, not one corrupted who would cause more pain and suffering.

SO what this allows us to do is more 'core' members of the guild can be CRUSADERS, and anyone who wants a more relaxed RP experience or can't play often can simply be a mercenary in the Band of the Hawk - wandering, doing what good they can, but not at the forefront of the crusade.

If you like, Kelon can be a descendant of one of the first knights who joined Lady Aribethia in setting up Whitehawke.

Heya!

I'm really interested in your guild. I've never RP'd outside of the few times I played pen and paper RPG's when I was in high school, but I know I really wanted to for TESO. I was just curious if you guys take in RP newbs?

BTW I was wanting my character's background to be coming from an orphanage. Funny I stumbled across this page.

Nice to meet you.

Not having much RP experience isn't a problem - so long as you keep an open mind and give it a decent go.

So for online, there's two ways in which people generally RP - On forums and in-game.

On forums, it's basically a post-by-post type of narrative where players go back and forth as if they were writing their own parts of a greater story which evolves with each new post. We can discuss and try that later if you'd be interested in developing your character.

In-Game, most people RP in 'hotspots' like taverns but personally, I prefer to stay and type in character chat to add to the overall immersive adventure. Whenever you're not busy kicking butt, you basically converse with other player characters around you as if you are you are your character. Mind you this is in /say so it's in proximity of your character not like, guild wide chat.

I'm certainly happy to help you develop your character and their voice if you're interested :)

Given the lore above, can you tell me what you were thinking for your character?

I only have a very rough outline for the character because I haven't acctually sat down and written a back story yet... Something I am going to do in the next few days. However I do have some bullet points I was going to shape it from.

-Redguard
-Bore to a fisherman and a house wife
- oldest of two children
- lived on the southern coast of Hammerfell in Rihad until age 8, When mother, father, and younger brother were murdered in their own home. (Obviously all that would have to be altered if you admitted me)
-as an orphan he learned that he without money he must steal to survive. to steal he must be sneaky.
-survived off of what he could manage to take from the markets
-living on the streets made him profficient in combat with a knife or dagger

So yeah, I have a lot to change and would need it to fit within the narrative of this guild but I could make it work. Heck all I have is the outline and I dont even have anything after age 15

This all actually works perfectly for the guild lore.

After the attack, it's likely a Band of the Hawk mercenary was dispatched to check the attack out - SO if you wanted, you could have been taken to the orphanage in Whitehawke right at age 8 where you can still learn those skills... OR... everything up until you're 14-15 but still quite young could be the same and maybe you tried to pickpocket one of the Band of the Hawk mercenaries who had grown up at the orphanage and was now out in the world -- caught you... realized you need a home as he once did and people to put you on a more 'righteous' path before you turn into a complete bandit and end up dead on the side of some random road... the Merc took you to Whitehawke where after an adjustment period, you found a PURPOSE in life, and a home.

That's perfect. I would dip the age down to about 11 though. I like it. I will work on developing it into a cohesive story and have something better than bullet points within the next few days.
