One for Sorrow ~ A Rhyme about how the number of Magpies you see can inform you of your fate
One for Sorrow
Two for joy
Three for a birth
Four for a death
Five for silver
Six for gold
Seven for a tale never told
Eight for a wish
Nine for a kiss
Ten for a hunt you should not miss
Eleven for health
Twelve for wealth
Thirteen beware, it's Jormag himself!
The Magpie Mercenaries are a group of loosely structured mercenaries based out of Hoelbrak. They were originally founded by four Norn, a Human and an Asura, with the purpose of being able to see the world of Tyria and getting paid while doing so. Since then they’ve grown, some of the founders have moved on, while new people have taken their place. Most of the recruits have been Norn but the group doesn’t seem to judge on race, just if their ideals fit those of the pack. The guild is based in a lodge near Hoelbrak and has formed close ties to each other, more of a family and a pack instead of just a group of sellswords. Due to their current composition they tend to be more on the “heroic” side and less on the “bad guy” side.
The Magpie Mercenaries is a role play guild where actions have consequences. The world can be gritty and if you kick up enough dust, the world is deadly. We expect mature out of character behaviour and tolerance for in character rudeness and malicious intent. If you make in character enemies, they will be your enemies next week too. Only way out of a sticky situation is making it better yourself.
Helping you with plots and other RP matters are the guild officers. Contact them freely, ask for tips, ask for help getting involved and offer feedback on what's going on.
