You hear a whistle from a shadowed alley, and a pair of fingers beckoning you closer.
"Don't worry I aint going ta rob ye" The whispered voice was gruff and the accent was that of one brought up on the wrong side of the street.
"A sliver fer ye time?" The pair of fingers now flash with the shine of a freshly minted silver coin. You can't help but lean in a bit closer. The man stayed deep in the shadows but the smell of rum and the salt of the sea assaulted you.
"Ye ever hear o the Brethren? The lads and lassies that run the Arch from the shadows? How would ye like ta be on they good side?" He gives you no time to answer.
"Aint like the Captain's getting all that business and coin from them nobles, wanting ta be Kryta's lap dog. They ferget what the people o the Arch sacrificed fer they freedom, that it were us that rebuild this city many times with out selling our souls ta the consortium. As Commodore Cobiah Marriner once said. Lion's Arch is a port of our own. We've build it over and over, and we'll defend it against any that try to take it. We the citizens make it a free port, not beholden to any nation, open to anyone in need of a home to call their own. We'll teach them how to protect it against any threat, using charr weaponry, asuran innovation, and human courage. The port would be open to any and all, so long as they'll fight for our freedom and help to keep the waters clear."
The man moves just a bit and you catch sight of a smile surrounded by a red beard. The coin is flipped from his fingers as he chuckles. "We the ones that make it the free city, it up ta ye ifn ye wish ta stand with us."
With those last whispered words, there is a yell from inside the bar and the sound of breaking glass. The barkeep yells at someone to take it out side. In that moment of distraction the man is gone, and all you can do is look at the silver coin at your feet.
To those that RP in Lion's Arch we welcome you to join the Brethren Court.
Think of this as a way to get on the same shard as all the other Lion's Arch RPers. There is some story line going on with the Lords and in time perhaps you will be asked to join the Court as a Lord. But there is no push to do so, this guild is open to all. Those that just RP in the bars, those that just go on dates. Those that own a business or ship in the Arch or even those that have a toon live there.
We take Lionguard, pirates, mercenaries, bandits, butchers, bakers, street rats, heroes and anything you can think of. We are trying to get the LA community back together. Much like TCRP this is a way to organize events, or find events in the city, as well as get on the same shard as everyone else. There will be gambling nights, and fight nights, as well as any other event some one can think of. There will be a return of Whale of a Tail as well.
If you are interested in joining the guild you can post here, or ask any member of Brethren Court of Lions Arch (BCLA) that is online. As well as mailing or messaging Erik the Bloody.
Thank you, and May the wind be at your back!
