I know there are a couple here (that I haven’t wrangled already) looking to possibly make an alt/character/take a roster on Arx. I am always happy to be a connection for people. I don’t get super involved in main plot thing, focusing on the more narrower Grimhall plans or stuff to do with Crafters Guild. Orchid is a little commoner who is heavy into woodworking stuff, agriculture, and helping build up Grimhalls. She’s a timid creature but I’ve been in talks with a couple people about bursting her out of her shell.
I also have an in works little bit (for when OCs open) who is going to be a Malvici. The write up I currently have for her concept plan: A noble who is basically the person who keeps <twin player, they can decide if to reveal> in line. She is scholarly and/or a socialite that is a healer at heart. She was conscripted into the duchy military as a medic and left as soon as she could. She is part of the Mercies. She strives to create connections and alliances for the family. Be it by political, social, marriages, or anything in between. This makes her a possible candidate for Voice or a Minister involving social aspects. She semi-acts as a spy for Martino since he is concerned about how far into the dark side <sibling>is going. She is overall a kind person who tends to keep all the secrets, until it works negatively against her or her family. Like <sibling> she is into charitable things but legitimately does it over doing it for a cover. She very much cares about helping others. Also a Discipline of Lagoma.
Since there is still a weekish until OCs open there is potential for the concept to be tweaked.
As for connections I am open too:
- Spouse (either girl, unless said otherwise)
- Family member (sibling, possible parent, cousin, aunt/uncle), no child for either since Orchid is to young for PC age child and future alt is likely to be to young too.
- Employee (both noble or Orchid but in different aspects)
- Apprentice (for Orchid)
- Anything else. I’ll make up reasons if you have ideas/roster selection you think would not make sense hanging out with either of them.
P.S. If you want an in for main plot stuff, I am not that kinda girl. I’m also happy to help write up everything for an OC if you’re not big on the CGing. I am not a good person to ask about stats things. Not my forte.
I am also happy to be a background contact via Edris if there’s anyone incoming that thinks he dovetails for that or he appeals in some way after you look at his page on the Arx website!
While he’s probably most suitable as a background contact for someone with strong ties to the North or to the Oathlands, I’m definitely open to suggestion. He’s been based in Arx now for the last two years, so could have a broad source of contacts from that as well. When I created him as a roster I had a lot of folks who were really really nice and helpful in being willing to be contacts as part of the app (I don’t think you need to do that as an OC!) (but thank you so much Lou, previous Jamie, and Deva in particular with accepting that sort of tie with a player that you didn’t even know!) So I’d be very happy to pay it forward with other folks.
And if background ties are a little awkward (I really enjoy those right out of the chute but I know other folks prefer just getting to know people on screen), Edris is super outdoorsy/nature oriented, is often chaperoning pages/squires about the city, tries his hand at dabbling in various social situation as he’s trying to be a good representative for Elwood, ect so he can find himself in most areas ICly. Always happy to chat on game (though @mail might be best since it’s summertime and RL can bite me unexpectedly when I’m on) and PMs here is fine too.
Hopefully this is okay to piggy back on this thread, if not I can put it elsewhere!
@mietze You are totally fine too. Keeping looking for friends stuff for one game in one post makes it easy for people to browse for a way to make connections.
