“Family isn't defined only by last names or by blood; it's defined by commitment and love.”
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.
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.
“When the roots are deep, this is no reason to fear the wind.”
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!
