Northern Ranking Characters
« on: 25 May 2014 at 12:26 PM »
With the return to the North well under way, the following characters are going to be made available for play. Some will come with various prompts and things to consider or include, but by and large we are open to suggestions and input and the character opportunities are as sandboxy as we were able to make them given the storyline and the world we have created!

Please note that all these characters do come with a few required details, and all of them - due to their rank - come with a six month trial period. If participation in plots and/or general posting isn't deemed suitable, or the Player is not able to follow the admin prompts as required, the team do withhold the right to remove the character from that Player's possession. We do not intend to make good of this clause, but we will be reviewing all adopted characters regularly.

It should also be noted that all Ranking characters will come with some Out Of Character responsibilities - this will mostly amount to assisting the Team keep track of the political stance of that character's Hold or Hall. More information on that is included on the OOC Rank Responsibility (TBA) thread.

The Holds of Pern



Opinions


Changing Opinions
These are the political stances as of the first of June, 2014 and should be considered the opinion of the Lord and his Hold upon adoption. These opinions may change throughout the process of RPing, and Played Characters are certainly encouraged to form changing opinions over the RL/IC months as the year progresses. However, such changes should take realistic time, and make some form of political sense; how will a change in stance benefit the changer, and what negative impacts is it going to have upon the Hold/Halls they are now disagreeing with? Etcetera.


Current Opinions
Negative: 6
Neutral: 5
Positive: 4




Restrictions & Opportunities


Lords:
Minimum Age: 38
Restrictions:
+ No more than two (2) under the age of forty (40)
+ Will have married at some point between 25 and 35
+ Will have been fostered to a neighbouring Hold for political purposes as a youth
+ Will most likely have a Jr. Journeyman rank in a Craft that is of use to his Hold
Ladies:
Minimum Age: 16
Restrictions:
+ No more than five (5) under the age of twenty-five (25)
+ Younger she is, the less likely she is the first wife of the Lord in question.
+ She may not be a character in her own right, until further notice; only Lord Holders are presently adoptable.
+ However, we encourage the Lady to have an LPC profile and be available for adoption in the future to another Player.
+ You as the original creator and primary partner of RPing, will have significant say in.
Children:
All couples must have at least one child.
We will allow one (1) couple to be childless, in the event that:
a) The wife is over the age of twenty-five (25)
b) The husband is over the age of forty (40)
c) No other special circumstances, changes, edits or allowances have been made.
d) There is some internal drama reflected upon the childlessness of the couple, and it plays a part in their day to day life.
Remember: Children, and particularly sons, are especially treasured by the Pernese, and being childless is a big deal – especially when neither half is particularly young.





Character Availabilities


The following Lords are available for creation. Each of them comes with a few minor points that must be included in their profile. Their ladies, at this point in time, are only available as LPCs for whomever creates the Lord. At a later date, individual Players will be able to put their lady up for Adoption and seek out an RP partner. At this stage, however, only the Lords will have any notable part in the plotting; this is largely due to the IC stigma against women.

The Halls of Pern



Opinions


Changing Opinions
As of the First June, 2014, all the Halls of Pern are of a negative opinion regarding the return of the Dragonriders. As a result, and to express their disgust with the theft of their Journeymen for so many turns, the Halls have made void any Dragonrider who previously claimed a Craft rank, demoting them and making it illegal for them to wear the Knots of a Crafter.

Those that were stolen, but did not Impress, were offered their rank and home within the Hall once more; those that denied were stripped of all ranks and acknowledgement .

The Stolen who Impressed were the cause of much debate; however, when a vindictive Weyrbrat* made a snide comment that they were allowed to ‘choose to stand’, and the gossip reached the ears of the Masters, the Conclave opted to ban them from wearing Knots as they did the original Riders from before the Plague. The fact that all were forced to Stand for at least one clutch fell upon deaf ears.

Eventually, the Halls as a whole will be won over; however, this is going to take a long time, and the Team does not foresee it happening anytime within the next six months, though individual Masters will respond differently. Until a Master is adopted, however, it will be retained that he is of a Negative opinion unless stated otherwise by a Team Member.

Two (2) Branch Masters may enter the game on a Neutral attitude towards the Dragonriders, so long as they do not otherwise claim an exception (eg, youth or are Mistress Tawna). Explanation must be given in the profile about why their opinion has or will shortly change, and the change should be expressed in the RP Sample. Consideration should be given to the Character themselves and explain why they are changing opinion and how the change is going to affect their life and that of their family, both long and short term. The Team will not accept ‘just because’ styled characters.




Master Crafters


Master Crafters are the Master of their Crafthall; they are responsible for overseeing all that goes on within the walls of their Hall, as well as managing the political end of things. They are the ones that have the final say on who may or may not Walk the Tables, who may or may not enter the craft, where their Branch Masters and Journeymen are assigned, and so forth. Despite their Mastership over the entier Hall, they do still speicalise in a single Branch - they are not masters of every branch.

Master Crafters are always men, and have been throughout Second Pass history. These men often marry, and have families, and their children are as likely to enter their own craft, as they are to be used as political pawns and sent off to be educated at another Hall, almost always in exchange for an equally ranked offspring of the other Hall's Master Crafter.

Branch Masters


Branch Masters - almost entirely made up of men - are those that have studied one particular branch of their given craft, and earned their master's knots. There may be more than one of any given branch (and very often there are several). Aged almost always 35 upwards, these men are speciality teachers; they are as well known for taking on personal Apprentices as they are for vanishing into the realms of hermit like lifestyles, rising up only when a new discovery is made.

Due to the shere availability of Branches for each craft, these will be listed as they are created, with the exception of Lady NAME, who is the only female Branch Master currently alive.

The Dragonless

Following the Plague, many hundreds of thousands of dragonriders were lost; some, however, found it within themselves to soldier on, despite the loss of their lifemate. Some of those characters are going to be made available for play. Before adopting a dragonless, however, one should seriously consider the type of character these men are going to be. Severely mentally and emotionally damaged with the loss of their dragon, these people are not going to look kindly upon the return of dragonkind. Heartache, jealousy, rage - these people are, by far, going to be the most hardheaded objectors to the return of dragonriders. There will be the odd one who goes against the grain; these are to be incredibly rare.

Additionally, there will be available 3 ex-goldriders, who will be brought to the Weyr through barely-legal (as it were) means, the objective for them to partner up with the current goldriders, and teach them what their duties are, for old Tsuen was a less than adequate teacher and all the girls' education in that area is severely lacking. These women are unlikely to be pleased, and the pain they must suffer at being around goldriders who have whole, healthy dragons would very likely be exquisite.

These guys will need to be played carefully and their opinion must change through RP only. None may start with a neutral or positive attitude.
