    Hello there guys,

    My guildies and a lot of the RP'ers of our shard are trying to stand up what will be effectively known as the Order vs. Chaos RP PvP theme on the Catskills shard and I would like to know if there any RP'ers that would be interested in this concept.

    First, I want to say that our guilds (those we've invited to join the theme) have yet to really talk about the details, so based on feedback the concept has been ever evolving, but I think we'll be in great shape real soon. This is a private, player-ran theme that has two alliances, so any interested guilds after the founding would have to apply to join.

    CONCEPT
    The concept is centered around two warring alliances; one Order, one Chaos. A guild chooses a sign to align with, clears their war lists, and joins the alliance --- those that cannot clear their lists, for whatever reason, can still align to a side and would just have to manually handle war declarations. There is a common set of ROE's for all guilds and also specific ROE's for the battles.

    Guilds write storylines and battle plots and submit them through a special website; which members review, give feedback on, and collaborate together. All stories must be able to be executed with little to no EM involvement, so that we're not bogging down the EM's.

    Battles can be anything that your creativity allows; seiges of cities, rescue missions, artifact finds, prisoner escorts, caravan swarms, etc. etc. Member guilds would converge into a pre-determined area (city, dungeon, swamp, island, whatever) at a pre-determined time, and bring on the old school GUILD WARS. We would declare for either a set amount of time, # of casualities, or anything we stipulate in the battle's ROE's.

    CONTACT
    If you would be interested in joining such an RP PvP theme, please let us know through ICQ (on my signature) or email me at [email protected] . Also Bianca (from CoD) is available and will help me organize this theme, it was partly her idea. Her email is [email protected]!


    Looking for feedback, questions, suggestions, etc... Thanks so much!

    sounds fun like the old order/chaos days. have everyone who uses a shield running an imbued order/chaos type shield. join factions, order will be true britannians. chaos should be shadowlords. fights over the sigils and base control could provide a lot of fun and rp possibilities

    We would not be joining Factions because this would be staged RP wars... not all "factionites" RP, most make fun of the RP'ers. :)

    But yes, the shields would be worn during our battles.

    It is very nice to see this out in the open and getting input from everyone. This looks like a very promising theme Pandora. For those who do not know Pandora, she is very talented and energetic. When she puts herself in to an idea she usually gets great results. If you are on the fence about this theme, give it a shot it might just give you that classic RP feel that many of us miss.

    Glad to see it out in the open now for discussion.

    Could you elaborate on the gear limitations?

    Are skills at a cap to gm or is it ok to be 120 in skills?

    Will there also be a designated color for order and chaos guilds?

    Knowing this is tram based RP PvP and no factions involved will their be designated cities for order and chaos to call their home city?

    Concerning archers since they wont be able to use a shield to identify themselves as order or chaos, do you have a solution for this?

    All valid questions to which we do not have exact details on just yet, we're having a pre-meeting to go through some of these issues and ideas. If you'd like to join such talks, PM me and let me know.

    I'll give you my opinions...

    Gear limitations so far are leaning to GM gear only, 1 slot pets (maybe 2 dunno on that). We're willing to work through that.

    I do not see a reason to limit skills.

    Designated colors is a good idea, but some guilds like to wear guild colors.

    Guilds will not engage is large scale wars outside of the RP storylines, so I see no need for "designated cities" --- old OvC did not have that.

    I don't think identifying rival sects will be an issue because they are orange... your same sect is green. Remember its TWO alliances. So wearing a shield would be nice, but probably not a requirement for identification.

    Looking forward to your PM! :)

    I do not think it was ever some big secret, we just needed some time to sort through the details, at least to present a basic starting to point to the guilds we chose to invite to the theme. There will be more talks with interested folks that are bound to make the idea evolve. But we're very excited to bring this concept back into our shard, for Catskills certainly needs a little boost in this area of play.

    First chat happening tonight; 11 guilds (each having multiple folks attend) on Catskills are participating in these discussions to see if we can get it going!!! Amazing job that my guildies have done [ Amroth (Adam), Marinus (my husband Jim), and Pandora (Mariza) ] in organizing and putting all these people together to share and collaborate on ideas for this theme.

    So nice to see Catskills come together like this after all this time. :thumbup1:
