Applications for Dementlieuse nobility
« on: December 15, 2015, 06:22:33 PM »
Hello all,

After some discussion with the team, it has been decided that there will be a requirement imposed on those who wish to play a noble in Port-a-Lucine and the Core more broadly. While increased interest in the city is and remains to be a productive, powerful, and positive force for roleplay on the server, the granting of nobility to players has historically been a privilege awarded for excellent roleplay elsewhere and based on the discretion of the DM team. This policy has been unenforced for some time now, but given the massive upswing in activity (and a plethora of new noble characters), the team has decided to re-impose it. Therefore, no new noble houses may be created for or in Port-a-Lucine (this includes nobility from elsewhere, such as Richemulot, Mordent, and so forth), nor may new nobles be created for existing houses, without a PM request, sent to me, which states clearly:

Quote
Name:

Character Name:

Account:

Other Characters/Accounts:

Brief Biography (no more than a paragraph):

Statement of goals and methods (no more than a paragraph):

It will be significantly easier to join an existing House than it will be to make a new House. Additionally, all sanctioned Houses will have to submit a write-up for the thread of Dementlieuse Houses, so information is consistent and available to those who want it.

Since Vengeance's policy was last enforced and now a number of player Houses have been invented, and we do not intend to penalize these Houses that have contributed to roleplay in Port-a-Lucine. A list of player Houses which are retroactively approved (or were bestowed in the meantime by DM grant) follows:

Sallembier
Voclain/de Coursay
Marceaux
Delaroux
Valois

If you have created a noble character and your House does not appear on this list, you will need to contact me via PM and potentially submit an application per the rules above. This is not intended to be a damper on roleplay (and good applications won't be refused), but rather an encouragement to think about other kinds of roleplay in a city teeming with narrative possibilities.

NOTE: This does not list noble houses created with DM approval prior to the end of Vengeance's tenure; for those houses see this list.
