Every year at the end of December, the House Rousseau at-Rabiah leadership team takes a few weeks to look back at the rest of the year introspectively. Through evaluation of what has worked and what opportunities for growth we see, adjustments for the new year are made and announced. This year, we have some great new changes that will help bring our focus inward towards one another and streamline inefficiencies. If you have any questions about this list, please contact your Capo or attend the scheduled voice meeting.

In the past year there has been a consistent theme of officers being over-scheduled with one on ones. While we encourage our leadership and membership to meet and in no way want to brush off role play, this has created an environment where just to meet leadership, a member has to request a one on one. In addition, this has created an environment for leadership where they rarely get to casually role play with the guild as a whole or participate in private role play due to over-scheduling.

Moving forward into 2018, to facilitate a more relaxed, realistic role play schedule for our leadership as well as our leadership team being more present in public, casual settings for your character to meet organically. We will be setting some guidelines on how to navigate meeting the leadership team and presenting problems or suggestions that arise in-character.

Keep in mind that certain events still will be scheduled. These include events that will be very important for either the guild as a whole or a division of the guild to be in attendance in an effort to help others plan to make these meetings. In other words, moderate to large sized events will be scheduled, while one on ones and small group role play will try to remain organic.

Goal: To create a more organic in-character environment where all characters can mingle and meet naturally, present in-character concerns and suggestions realistically, maintain officer enjoyment, and preserve a healthier out-of-character experience.

This past year, we did a really awesome thing - The March War! This really awesome thing, though, was very exhausting! We frequently had three community event offerings a week and this really detracted from our ability to role play inwardly and focusing on member stories. Our goal for the next year, as already announced, is to focus on our family in-character and out-of-character, which includes our hub guilds.

To be able to do this, our community event offerings need some reworking to free up our calendar while also providing for the community like we always have. In addition, we want to ensure that these events we host for the community are enjoyable for us as a guild. We never want things to feel stagnate and we are infusing our community events with our organic role play theme!

Goal: To streamline our community offered events in a way that promotes community interaction while respecting organic role play, focusing on guild, and keeping things fresh!

With The March War, we reached out not only to our hub guilds, but the entire community. While this was a great effort with a great culmination of participation throughout the season, it impacted our ability to focus inward - which includes all of our allies! Our goal for the next year, with focusing inward, is to bring new life and participation to our hub guilds.

We are honored to organize these two hub guilds, creating a community of people in-character to serve as jobs, connections, and plot development for your characters. The Concourse and The Communion are directly written into the House Rousseau at-Rabiah story, being the populations that we serve. This creates an opportunity for members to connect with allied members in such a way that we would not need to create NPCs for plots or jobs we wished for our characters, but to encourage the natural development of connections and stories through organic role play with our hubs.

Goal: To solidify the living world created within the entire House Rousseau at-Rabiah family, which includes our extended families in The Concourse and The Communion.

If you are a member of House Rousseau at-Rabiah, the coordinators of The Communion and the Concourse, are a GM of the Communion or Concourse, a guild member of any of the guilds within the Communion or the Concourse, or are an independent within the Communion or the Concourse - please join our new joint discord!

Please also ask in the discord to join the in-game guild for Embassy of Freedom!

Our two separate discords are being joined into one to prevent cluttering of additional discords - as we all know you have a ton - as well as helping to build connections within our overall story! We seek to help you build both 'light and dark' connections within our guild story with all of our amazing hub guilds and independents in an effort to create a truly living world of a stratified society from the beggars, to criminals, to nobility.

Please get your guild members to join both on the websites as well as in the discord, if you are a GM with us! The only way for this to be successful is with your involvement both IC and OOC! Let's make the Communion and the Concourse even more alive in 2018! We are so blessed to have such a positive community that supports one another, let's give it some TLC!

If you are not yet a member of the Communion, Concourse, or not a member of a guild within the Communion or Concourse, please apply before joining our discord. You will need to be a member of the Communion, Concourse, or a member of one of our hub guilds to be in the discord.
