    It's that time again, isn't it?

    I'll see you soon, kindred.

    For once there are no great foes, not this time

    No masters bearing shackles intent upon putting us to labour

    We have spent so much time here, kindred, yet our new allies do not what we are, nor what we are truly capable of

    Have we failed to help them understand? Is the fault our own?

    Regardless of the answer it does not matter, we will show them better, and we will learn to co-exist better, we must learn

    We must, as it is time again

    We must come together, kindred, for the Great Bonding

    It is time for Communal

    They will understand what we are


    // So just a little exposition here, this is to be a mostly passive worldbuilding and atmospheric event, but obviously this is subject to change and how it unfolds on the night won't guarantee that.

    // As you may have guessed yes both vorts and humans will be part of it, though troublemakers and those the vortkind don't want attending will be kept out, as this is a deeply personal affair for them. I don't expect any major conflicts, this is closer to a festival or a great cultural tradition for the vortkind than a threat to deal with, and its purpose is to help show this deeply spiritual side of the vortigaunts more, to the benefit of both current vort players and all the humans that attend.

    // I will also be looking for a few event characters, shoot me a PM and I can fill you in on a few details.

    It is different, incomplete, this time

    We must gather before The Communion, for we require a prophet

    To represent us in gathering

    To guide us in hardships

    To dictate our very race's fate

    There is nothing more urgent

    I shall see you shortly

    [​IMG]

    // Before the main event, which is still some weeks away, there are to be a few events focused about bringing the vortigaunts together to discuss this occurence IC, and who the prophet to represent them in the final large gathering will be. This prophet will dictate the future of a lot of my events and the overall direction of the entire faction so it's an important choice to make. I will be using this to help all of you understand exactly what this is, and to give you some roleplay we can use in the actual event so it's not a case of all waiting for it to be told to you.

    // First gathering is next week, is the 14th of May good for you? That is a Sunday. I'm thinking about 10pm GMT.

    // Just a quick reminder that the first of these is going to be tomorrow at 10pm GMT (11pm UK time, 6pm East Coast time) as nobody has voiced any concerns with the times.

    // To clarify this first event is one of several preludes to the main event and is pretty much vortigaunts-only this time about. We will be discussing what the event is actually going to be, both IC and OOC, and we will be addressing the changes that have happened and will happen with the faction to come. If you have time I do suggest you try come along as it won't take too long and will hopefully clear up a lot of troubles some of you as vort players have been having, as well as getting any concerns you still have heard at the time.

    // Shackled vort players can bring a character OOC and just attend for the OOC section if you have anything you want to say, or want to better understand the IC side of things for your Rp, character, and understanding of the faction.

    // apologies folks but my internet went out shortly after my last forum post and doesn't seem to be an issue I can fix, but rather a problem with my provider. I'm afraid it's looking like I'll have to postpone as I won't have access tonight short of mobile tethering, which won't cut it on my current data plan. Next week for sure, sorry, it'll hopefully be back in a few hours

    // Internet just came back on now, looks like we'll be rescheduling this for next Saturday or Sunday as I wouldn't want to exclude the people who went out of their way to make time tonight and have now since gone offline due to how long I was unreachable. Roughly the same time is expected. Sorry for the delay folks, thankfully this first prelude really is just exposition.

    // I will write up a thread to actually explain what was proposed for you properly for tomorrow, and I'll make sure to put it as clearly as possible so don't get too worried about this being a plot to erase your individuality. it's not. it's best described as a mental to-do list that every vort knows, kinda gets the urge to follow, but nothing is forced upon you, or how you do it. You do it your way, and you are generally expected to cooperate to achieve it.

    // This has been part of a long long process to slowly bring vorts back up to a better standard, and I fell it's a good direction to go to give us a stronger driving force and a purpose for our characters for those who otherwise feel lost, and isn't overwhelming as to force people who want to do their own thing into something else.

    // Hey I totally didn't forget to set up when this was next, or forget to make that post (shit, I'll do it after work today sorry guys) how does same time as last time work for everyone? This will just be a discussion like before to wrap up the election process now we've had time to digest and consider. I will be making a little OOC notice for us to address any and all concerns before we start it.
