The Zephyrites are an order of pacifist skyfaring nomads and followers of Glint. They are known for their specialized air magic, unparalleled access to exotic goods, and secretive, reclusive nature. Their centuries-long history has brought them many tragedies, but they maintain their ideals of peace and harmony as they work to rebuild and move forward.
We are a NEW RP guild that's just starting up! We would like to expand a little bit, especially with strong and experienced RPers who can help us lay the foundation of what the guild will become!
Plot and Story
For centuries, the Zephyrites have served as protectors of Glint and her legacy. Their sky ships are an ideal place to hide things that shouldn't be found. As an order, they hold countless dangerous secrets, some of them known only to the Masters.
We're planning internal guild plots to give our Zephyrite characters some secrets to keep, but we hope to have a few more members before we begin. Individual plot lines are also highly encouraged, so if you have something Zephyrite-centric you'd like to run, let's make it happen!
For those who are caught up in the Living World story, we also do scenes responding to those events. The guild is presently caught up and RPing in 1332. There's also a full Zephyrite-relevant timeline (WITH SPOILERS) available at our forum, for all your backstory needs.
Events and Collaboration
We're also interested in cross-guild RP, open-world RP, and public events. Do you need a contact that can get you all the rare, exotic items your heart desires? A place to serve as a neutral meeting territory for difficult negotiations? Transportation to that hard-to-reach area? Somewhere to stash that dangerous item where no one else can find it? You could NPC those roles or do it off camera, but if you'd like to collaborate and expand your story through us, we'd love to get involved!
The Festival of Four Winds will be our guild's yearly public event and we'd be happy for involvement from other guilds there as well. More on that as we get closer to summer.
- To be an asset to the RP community to be used to further immersion and flesh out the world through interactions with other RP guilds.
- To serve as a central group for Zephyrite or Zephyrite-adjacent characters to meet with and RP with other Zephyrites.
- To provide a space for "good"-aligned characters to have deep and meaningful story arcs with like-minded players, while still getting the feel of a "secret society" guild.
- To flesh out the Zephyrites in an interesting and believable way while remaining as lore-compliant as possible.
- Balance. There are no activity requirements. Play when you want, games should be fun, not an obligation.
- Harmony. Members should show kindness and support to one another, OOC, as much as possible. However, it's also important to hold each other accountable when we make mistakes. We are all trying to do our best. Give criticism with kindness, accept criticism with grace.
- Peace. Members should not start fights or harass anyone in game, for any reason.
- Equality. We value all people regardless of race, sex, gender, sexuality, ability, socioeconomic status, RP experience, or any other OOC factor. Moderation and power hierarchies will be as flat as possible, whenever possible.
- Trust. We are, at least OOC, a safe place. We will not tolerate bigotry, slurs, or hate speech. (Profanity is fine, unless used in violation of other rules.)
You can also see some RP Guidelines on our forum.
You can find an application here, but you can also jump onto our Discord or find a member in game! Nothing in the application is a trick question, we just want to get a handle on who your character is and where they'll be starting out in the guild. If we can figure that out in game, application isn't always necessary. Toss a profile up in our forum, don't be a jerk, and we'll be fine.
We have a flat hierarchy with no singular guild leader. For now, these people have volunteered to be our contacts in game!
