This thread is for signups for a long-term event chain that will be run by myself and several other DMs over the coming weeks. There are some provisos to this event chain:
1- Your PC's inventory will effectively be sequestered from the main server areas for the duration. The whole plotline and accessory events will take place over the course of 2-4 weeks RL time.
2- The sequestered areas are kinda bare bones, so stores will also be rather limited. Pack accordingly.
3- The event chain is comprised of one major plotline though it will feature many smaller plots and one-off event stories. Attendance to all events in the plotline are NOT mandatory, and in fact the party will be broken up at times and thus no one will actually be at every single event.
4- The event will be risky. It will be dangerous. DMs will be supervising. Deaths or permanent RP injuries may occur but aren't planned and will never be pursued to "spice up the narrative." Ultimately, as always, you will be responsible for your PC's life.
5- To go with 4, it will be pretty rewarding, both in terms of RP and play experience, but also in terms of bonus exp, skill gains, and loot.
6- New alts that are natives to the Expedition region may be allowed, depending on their backstory. If you're interested in taking this route, send me a PM with your character and their history.
Due to the nature of the plot and the already-in-motion setup for it, there will only be 4 Factions that can participate. If your PC is a member of any of these factions, you can sign up. If your PC is in the process of trying to get into one of these factions, there will be a handful of events for each one in the coming 1-2 weeks to get them squared away for the plot launch, so you can jump into them then (sign up in advance).
Events will generally take place in the evenings EST on weekdays, afternoons and evenings EST on weekends. This makes it hard for European players unfortunately, but hopefully we'll have some more DM support on our end to expand the times so that it's more flexible. Stay tuned.
We want at least two PCs representing each faction, with one having a larger presence due to story considerations. We'll have to massage the numbers based on party compositions and factions and such, so if a lot of people sign up, not everyone will be guaranteed to go. Capping at 10-12 PCs, we're still ironing it out.
