Now that you guys are a guild (
) it got me thinking (
For a while now I've been trying to build the Blessed Order of the Quest as an RP community, but I've realized a better way of going about it.
The way I see it there are currently 3 RP guilds (only one has an actual guild tag): Poets, Boot-Q and Shadow Hands of Norrath. There may also be guilds that are interested in RP while not necessarily being an RP guild (Shortbread Army, etc).
So here's my proposal: I'll take the Boot-Q site and make it a bit more universal so it can be a place where the RP community as a whole can meet. Each participating guild will of course get their own forum, but here's the real purpose of doing it: we can all plan events, help each other and resolve disputes as kind of a UN of guilds. Each RP guild may have a different reason for being (music, chaos, order, etc) but we can all be together in one place.
My intent for doing it this way is so there can be a place random role players can go and write stories and meet other role players. The closer the community is the stronger we can make our mark on Norrath and the more of us there will be.
I'll be mucking with the Boot-Q site all week and have just reserved the url www.companionsofnorrath.com
for the community. I figure the alliance of guilds could be known as CoN. This Companions of Norrath idea was kind of my intent with Boot-Q, but Lav's story gave that a mind of its own. I think of Boot-Q now more of a group of vigalantes trying to restore order, not a council of guilds.
This alliance may also be the beginnings of an in-game guild council where folks can make decisions about game things like not waking the Sleeper etc... and settle disputes, but I get ahead of myself.
Let me know what you think.
