    Red vs. Blue: Darkfall
    [​IMG]
    RvB: D is a community-driven perpetual PvP initiative in the spirit of Halo: RvB, and similar in format to EVE's RvB.

    There is no commitment required of members, it is designed to be a drop-in, drop-out environment for the community to participate in RvB: D and PvP.

    Currently Recruiting:
    • Warriors of any experience
    • Low-level Crafters
    • Leaders with shot-calling and/or organizational experience
    Players of any alignment may choose to join either Blue Reign, or Red Throne.

    The Blue Reign:
    Founded in the rolling hills of Mercia, these heroes worship Auros, god of the sun. They stand their ground with hammers raised, a force for good. They value perseverance, courage, and blind bravery. They have little use for mercy and rule over their lands with an iron fist, doling out justice however they see fit. They have no courts, no due process. They are paladins of decisiveness, action, and devotion to their order. Stand against them, and you will be judged.

    The Red Throne:

    Formed within a secret series of acid caves in Nagast, these heroes are servants of Melek. Bound by a blood oath, they are driven by a lust for violence. Although they are seen as evil, they feel there is no need for the paltry morality of their foes. They live their lives through instinct and reflex, and take the world as it comes. They dance naked under the midnight sun, casting hexes upon their enemies. They take prisoners with the sole intent of sacrificing them to Melek. Above all, they fight tooth and nail for their coven. Nothing is beneath them.

    How it works:

    RvB: D will consist of two clans, Blue Reign and Red Throne. These clans will be permanently allied, but perpetually hostile. Blues are welcome to participate and will not lose alignment due to the alliance. RvB is a longstanding tradition and does not refer to the alignment system in Darkfall, that is merely a coincidence. Players of any alignment may join either clan.

    These clans will engage in endless battle in the territory between and around their holdings.Currently, this territory is in Dwarf Lands, centering around the chaos banks to the NW and NE of Thorsland. We plan to eventually obtain holdings as we grow, but we will only ever possess two holdings, and they will be located in close proximity to each other.

    [​IMG]
    Blue Reign and Red Throne will be the sole members of the Purple Commonwealth Alliance. This will be an entirely apolitical alliance, it will not participate in external Darkfall politics, siege warfare, or asset damage, and will not be hirable for mercenary work. In the event that external forces intervene in RvB: D fights, events or holding ownership, "Purple" will be declared and RvB: D will act as a single unit to repel the attack.

    [​IMG]
    Each clan will procure and provide a continuous supply of low-rank weapons and armor for use in fights. Currently, the clans will be supplying r20 weapons, bows, and staves, along with Leather and Scale armor. The rank of supplies will fluctuate based on clan financing, but will never exceed r40 and equivalents. "Purple" events will be organized to fund the gear of both clans. We are intentionally trying to create a space for low-level crafters to find usefulness as they grind their way towards masteries. Donations of gear will be accepted but we prefer donations of raw materials so we can help the crafters we recruit level.

    Applicant Details:
    RvB: D will be a moderated community, and all applicants MUST read through our Rules and Structure before making role requests in the RvB: D Discord.


    Rules:

    1. Membership does not require commitment. Players may come and go as they please.

    2. No rage tells or salt. RvB: D is a PvP positive community and negativity will not be tolerated.

    3. Even fights may be requested but must never be expected. Darkfall is an open-world game and will be treated as such by RvB: D.

    4. You may loot RvB: D kills, or you may leave the graves to be recovered. Gear will be continually recycled within RvB: D. Abuse of the gear supply system will not be tolerated.

    5. Gear above the current supply rank may be worn but will not be refunded if lost.

    6. PvE spawns are considered Purple Commonwealth territory and are not valid spots for engaging other RvB: D members in PvP.

    7. RvB: D members may choose not to engage blue aligned players at their own discretion.

    8. RvB: D will be moderated and will have high community standards. Trolling, hate speech, and harassment will not be tolerated.

    9. RvB: D will not tolerate any behavior that disrupts RvB: D functions, reflects poorly on the RvB: D community, politicizes the RvB: D community or invites political retribution against the RvB: D community. Offenses include but are not limited to: trade ganking, bind-camping, griefing, asset damage, or siding with an external siege force. Members must drop tag to participate in any activities of this nature.

    10. RvB: D management reserves the right to corrective action for community members, up to and including temporary or permanent bans from the RvB: D Discord or from the Blue Reign and Red Throne clans in-game.

    Structure:

    1. The clans of Red Throne and Blue Reign will be permanently allied, but perpetually hostile. They will fight in the territory between and around their holdings. Currently, this territory is in SW Elflands, centering around Tughri and Inarith.

    2. Red Throne and Blue Reign will be the sole members of the Purple Commonwealth Alliance. This will be an entirely apolitical alliance, it will not participate in external Darkfall politics, siege warfare, or asset damage, and will not be hirable for mercenary work. In the event that external forces intervene in RvB: D fights, events or holding ownership, "Purple" will be declared and RvB: D will act as a single unit to repel the attack.

    3. The Purple Commonwealth Alliance may seek to obtain two holdings with close proximity, will only obtain these holdings via purchase or donation, and may choose to sell its holdings to obtain new locations, but will only ever seek to possess two holdings simultaneously.

    4. RvB: D may declare "Purple" to facilitate events outside their immediate territory, including roaming for PvP and raiding cities external to the Purple Commonwealth.

    5. Ranks will be handled as followed: Drop in/drop out members will be ranked as Recruit. Long-term members will be moved to Lieutenant to gain gate access. Only management will be ranked higher than Lieutenant.

    6. Each clan will procure and provide a continuous supply of low-rank weapons and armor for use in fights. Currently, the clans will be supplying r20 weapons, bows, and staves, along with Leather and Scale armor. The rank of supplies will fluctuate based on clan financing. "Purple" events will be organized to fund the gear of both clans.

    7. Members of the RvB: D community are expected to read and understand the rules of the community.

    Discord:

    https://discord.gg/fqqhMKw

    This is a community Discord, anyone who has read the rules and structure of RvB: D can request the "Community" role even if they are not ready to join one of the clans in-game. This role is used for all of our membership so they can retain community presence while they drop-in/drop-out of RvB: D.

    Choose your sides, warriors. The war is now.

    while i think it is an awesome idea there is one problem i see with this.

    Mages are your only viable option period.
    In a game where gear is the only equalizing factor vs the mage and even that struggles you are attempting to place an entire system in place where they can't use above r40 gear meaning the only playstyle is mage. Destro and Heavy-Hybrid are useless in your system as they will stand no chance where as your mages can be 100 everything hitting for stupidly high numbers because the best gear they will ever wear is r40.

    I may be misinterpreting Whispers post, but it seems gear is not limited to r40. I interpret it as r40 is a general baseline that they feel is generally effective enough while being affordable enough to keep the fun going. I understand that does not address the concern about destro and r40 gear, but it does seem to put the majority of players in passable gear. Please correct me if I am mistaken. Regardless of how the minor details get sorted out, the concept sounds like a lot of fun.

    This, there are no gear limits. The goal is to supply gear continually to players who need it, so that they are not limited and can go fight whenever they'd like. We will only be reimbursing up to a certain rank level though, we want to employ low-level crafters and give them a solid market for their work as they grind towards masteries.

    Nice, it would be real neat if BPG would listen and actually put a faction system into the game.

    We understand that everyone wants to finish their characters, but we definitely don't require a maxed character to participate! Just for reference, recommended skills to join would be:

    Lesser Magic: 70
    Greater Magic: 50
    Spell Chanting: Enough for Sacrifice
    Witchcraft: Enough for Witches Brew

    Melee 2-hander: 50 for Whirlwind
    Archery: 25 for Disabling Shot

    I'd be down to join in and at least stream the conflict every once in awhile.

    Blue for me obviously.

    Understood! Do you all have signature templates that we can customize and use? These mini-games sound amazing. I can't wait to participate.

    How do we opt for the side of the battle that's under powered? I want to fight for the under dog :)
