The following are some of the aspects of the guild which make us unique.
Writing Standards | We are interested in RPers who put clear effort into their posts. You don’t have to write an essay every emote, but you shouldn’t be consistently slinging one-lines of dialogue either. We wish to recruit paragraph RPers who include actions with character speech. Everyone makes typos, but if your posts are misspelled with zero attention paid to grammar, you won’t be a good fit for us. “Nods and smiles” RP is not our desired niche.
Dark, Serious RP | We place huge emphasis on staying true to our goals of serious, lore-accurate vampire and noble house RP. We are not a good environment for people who are more interested in flirting and partying than using the serious atmosphere we provide to launch memorable stories.
Overarching RP Themes | Our guild has two main pillars of RP: the Crescent Pact, a vampire coven which employs werewolves and witches, and House Valeio, an Imperial noble house which runs an Academy. It is required to be a part of the Crescent Pact to be a part of the guild. We don’t accept characters who would never serve vampires or who would refuse to join a coven. We also have a heavy religious influence, both our public deception of worship of the Divines and our true religion of Daedric worship.
Individualized Roles | The roles available within the Crescent Pact are vast and varied. From noble house staff, to Academy teachers and students, to guards, to dedicated blood servants, to vampires and werebeasts seeking shelter–so long as your character falls under our overarching themes, chances are we have a specialized role for you.
Freeform RP | The bulk of our RP is based around daily/nightly unscripted, freeform RP. This means our members meet up in one of the guild houses and RP whatever they please. One night that might mean an adventure, sparring, or magical study, and another night that may mean casual socializing or a tense witchy sacrifice in the woods.
Regular Events | We do have frequent events, from DMed plots to freeform social events (such as arena series, classes, and markets), but our focus is always on daily RP rather than a reliance on events. We want people to stop in and RP whenever they want, not just when there’s a scheduled event.
Character Sheets | We utilize a detailed, immersive character sheet system. While every member of the guild is required to have a sheet, you also aren’t required to use it if rolling and combat events aren’t your thing. But for those who do enjoy sheets, you can expect to find a dynamic system of character perks, progression, and individuality which makes dice rolls feel meaningful rather than purely random.
Teaching/Learning RP | We have an in-depth Academy with its own engaging system of teaching and learning RP. This makes it rewarding to RP students and instructors in a variety of topics—schools of magic, combat training, and lectures on virtually any topic imaginable. While participation in the Academy isn’t required to join, it is encouraged!
Character Advancement | We believe logical progression is one of the most important parts of RP. As a result, we are always willing to work with you to progress your character in a way that will be enjoyable for everyone involved. We put value on every member of the guild and love to help everyone carve out a niche where their character can flourish.
Lore Focus | Lore is very important to us. While we do use supplemental fanon to fill in the blanks–such as about the day to day lives of vampires and thralls, which are not addressed in lore–we believe in adhering to the game’s canon wherever possible. As a result, we do not allow custom/fanon bloodlines for vampires, since there are already plenty of varied and interesting lore bloodlines to pick from. When it comes to things such as unique applications of magic, we are much more lenient, provided your character isn’t demonstrating god powers.
