During Season One, we ventured into the mysterious history of House Rousseau at-Rabiah without solving the riddles - perhaps foretelling for the future. During Season Two, a vicious man fooled many and took over Ra Kotu, causing the family and their allies to have to take it back! During Season Three, a series of murders escalated into an all-out battle against the Worm Cult. And finally in Season Four, a war in the Alik'r against two opposing Marches brought the family and allies together to defend their own.


House Rousseau at-Rabiah will be four years old
this upcoming May.

Year after year, leadership has provided the bones of the story that is then organically manipulated by our members and allies. With our last season, The March War, we invited not only our allies, but the community inside our plot. For the next season, House Rousseau at-Rabiah leadership is going to celebrate you.


Your stories.
Your plots.
Your characters.

Instead of leadership creating the 'bones', our family, whom we consider to be both our guild members and allies from the Communion and the Concourse, will provide the stories, plots, and characters that will serve as the foundation of our next season. We call forth our members and allies to work alongside us, developing organic stories, job postings, mini-arcs, and role play that features your characters and connections with others.

With this next season, House Rousseau at-Rabiah Leadership plans to:

Foster House Rousseau at-Rabiah's members personal story arcs by assisting with mini-arcs, events, and job posting that feature your character and development you wish to have or help present.
Deepen our roots with each Division and it's members by encouraging organic job postings carried out in-game, establishing meetings, holding unique division events or mini-arcs, and even occasionally have a Division-hosted community special one-time events to garner advertisement for that Division.
Establish stronger connections with our allies in the Communion and the Concourse. We will be creating events and job postings for both that encourage our own guild members to reach out! Standard meetings for the Communion and the Concourse in-character membership and in-character leadership will be carried out alongside occasional unique parties and events. Also, we will be assisting our allies' plots! So many of our Communion and Concourse members supported our March War, we want to give back by interacting with your stories!
Spend time doing the personal role play development and organic role play with our family, which includes our own guild members and allies, that we did not have time to do with a constant, organized season.
With a basic 'background' environment of rebuilding after The March War, role play will be offered of that nature. This also allows us the perfect amount of 'relaxed' substance that can also be added to by organically created plot that develops through what all of you put forth and ally plots we end up participating in.


This means you as members of House Rousseau at-Rabiah, the Communion, or the Concourse can, after The March War has concluded:

Contact leadership about connections you wish to see, events you wish to put on, mini-plots you'd love to put forth, or ways you'd love to help!
Let leadership know if you are of an ally guild and wish to have our members participate in your plot or ways that we can connect with your plot! We will to help and partake!
Expect that TLC! We want to deepen our roots together, do events and plot lines we have been waiting forever to do. This means yours as well!
Run your own events and job postings! We want to help establish both our members and allies as being able to host events for the guild they are a part of to help foster connections!

Look for an overall guild meeting to discuss these things, explore new ideas, connect with others, and bring your excitement sometime in December!

Please know that House Rousseau Leadership will be taking a 2-week break following the conclusion of The March War on November 19th. We will still be around for role play, but it will be organic without 'set events' and we will be focusing on personal role play and down time after such a great season!

The House Rousseau leadership team would love to help you coordinate your event and/or plot line to share with the guild! In Season Five, our goal as a leadership team is to use our organizational skills to assist our members in carrying out their own events or plot lines to be featured and successful. We want you and your character's story to be in the spotlight!

To involve your plot, you have a few options. Your plot line can surely happen organically through random events and have nothing scheduled, so none of this is 'required'. Much of our RP will happen that way! We do know, though, that many members will wonder how to get involved and wish for help to bring their event, plot line, or idea to success!

We also want to offer our services as a leadership team. We are are available to:

✔To help prepare a post with art/writing/organization.
✔To advertise your event.
✔Set calendar dates for your event and find a suitable day for your event to coordinate with others.
✔To DM or assist in rolls during if desired.
✔Or any combination thereof!

You need not utilize our assistance as this is not a requirement to organically role play with us. As always, with organically presenting events and plot lines, please keep in mind our Organic RP Rules and Roll System. We have a set of questions, though, if you would like to receive assistance, that are to be answered at your discretion. If you do wish to utilize leadership, please send the answers of these questions to your Capo (Division Leader)!

Do you want your event scheduled, want leadership to help you prepare a post with art/writing, help advertising, set calendar dates, organizing prior, or DMing during? You may pick, any combination thereof. If you request no assistance, it will have to work out organically. If you do wish for assistance with any of the stated areas. we can help do that! Please indicated on this question which parts you would like help with!
What sort of length are you wishing for the event? Mini arcs should be about 3-5 events in length maximum, unless we discuss and agree on more.
Details/major plot points of your event if you have not already shared and feel comfortable doing so. You do not have to share if you do wish to, but please refer to the below guidelines if you do not wish to share. If you do wish to share, please know that all details will be kept secret by leadership.
What resolution are you seeking?
How can we involve other divisions or one of our hub guilds - The Concourse, The Communion, The Naughty Chair?
Does your event or plot overlap in story or location with other members or hub guilds events or plots?


Details to keep in mind if you wish to not share details of your plot or your event OOCly to leadership or wish your events or plots to be presented organically:

If your event or mini-arc has explicit themes, to be posted as a set event on the calendar instead of just through organic role play, you will need to be part of the Undisclosed. Please see our Undisclosed rules for definitions of explicit themes.
If your event has any themes that may be triggering or extreme, please warn others at the beginning of the event.
If your event may significantly alter another character in some way you must warn that this is a possibility prior to the event and respect any boundaries of members. I.E. Getting jailed, serious injuries, venturing to distant locations, pausing their own role play or story in some way.
If any event may significantly effect the guild or our hubs in some way, you must okay this with leadership prior.
If your event is following some other type of DM system or organic RP system than what the guild uses, you must inform others of your guidelines prior to their participation.
Unless otherwise informed, your event will be considered to follow our guild DM system and guild organic RP system.
