A letter has gone out to all of great skill and all who would heed the call.

"Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Professor Blackstock. Recently a guild of sorts has opened up North of the city of Falador. This guild seeks to pioneer new technologies using a mix of magic and machine. I would like to help lead our world into this new age, but I cannot do it alone. I am simply a former druid with experience utilizing divine energy and a lot of ideas, which is why I am sending this letter. To every blacksmith, diviner and craftsman or woman out there I would like to humbly invite you to my own guild. I wish to create a housing for the greatest minds of our time so that we may collaborate in our efforts and create inventions capable of changing this world and shaping it for the better. If you are interested please follow the map enclosed. I hope to see you soon."

Hello! So with the release of Invention I thought it'd be a cool idea to start incorporating some aspects of it into rp. This group is essentially going to be very similar to the Wizard Tower rp group, although there are going to be some key differences. Just to get these out of the way now I'll start listing them off:

* Almost all Races and Religions are allowed - No, this doesnt mean you can come in with your Mahj, Demon, Vampyre or Custom race and expect it to go off without a hitch. There are limits. Examples of accepted races would be Dwarves, Humans, Gnomes, Goblins (Preferably Dorgeshuun) Elves, and Aviansie. If you can think of another race you'd like to play as feel free to put it in your applications and I or an admin will be happy to look over it and use our expert (not really) judgement to give you an informe answer on why or why not it was approved so we can update the list of accepted and unaccepted races accordingly.

* You're free to come up with devices and inventions - That's the point of this roleplay group. Coming up with inventions. As long as you run it by me or an admin oocly so there's no issue of it not being feasable or too overpowered (for instance a tesla coil capable of vaporising anyone within 50 feet).

* This RP is NOT a private one - I fully intend for our inventions to be incorporated into public roleplay. That is if people want to accept them. Some will, some won't, but if for instance we create something similar to a modern day cattle prod or taser (these are just examples) I would like to offer people in public roleplay the chance to use those. If I get a lot of negative feedback about this I'll reconsider, but personally I believe it would fit with the theme of Invention since it's about creating devices that will hopefully be widely used, like bringing electricity from Dorgeshuun to all cities.

Those are the main differences, and I'm happy to answer any other questions you might have!

In-Character Rules

* No fighting, period. Debates are fine, they're healthy and further the field of inventions by pushing ideas into possibly new and strange directions. When it becomes an issue that starts to affect others or even just escalates to an unstable level between only 2 people that's when actions will have to be taken to prevent it from happening again.

* No exposing our labs to unauthorized individuals. This also means no removing inventions from the lab area to show to others. They either have to have permission to come in, or you have to have permission to remove a device or object from the labs. When a device has been completed and archived this rule no longer applies to said device, although it will apply to any and all schematics, regardless of completions status.

* Keep your work area safe. Make sure any inventions you attempt to create are safely contained during testing to ensure minimal risk of injury. Do not attempt to test your invention in an open area. Doing so may cause injury to yourself and others which we would like to avoid at all costs.

* Test subjects will be provide upon request depending upon what type of subject is required. Please do not test devices on anything else during the WIP phase of development.

I really don't understand why we must go over these. They're the same general rules as literally every other RP group ever.

* Try to be civil. Obviously some people aren't going to like others, I can't change that. Just don't actively be rude towards one another.

* No godmodding, metagaming, etc. Plain and simple, though this applies more towards your inventions, which brings me to my next rule.

* Lore. Follow it. This is the great thing about Invention, it's a blank slate. It's literally the process of creating new things, so do just that, but within the parameters of what lore would allow you. For instance, no making a machine to draw you into the shadow realm while it's on. Why? Well most people don't even know the shadow realm exists, much less how to get there. I'm a leneient person though, so as long as it doesn't contradict lore or force me to suspend my disbelief to unreasonable levels it'll probably be fine.

* Before beginning work on any invention (yes, creating these will take time and effort, oh my god!) always come to me or an admin for approval. I treat every invention as a storyline, so make it a good one. The more complicated it is, the longer it'll take to make, which is why you should always get it approved. Wouldn't it suck to complete your project only to be told your work was voided due to a flaw in lore you didn't notice? Although, if it's a minor one I obviously won't scrap the project, I'll simply say the device didn't work as planne and you need to find another, more lore-friendly way of making it work.

Tell me if I missed anything!

Upcoming Events

3/3/16 @ 8pm EST - Factory RP (will explain more during the rp). Due to a lack of responses on whether this time is good I postponed it. Please try your best to get in contact with me ASAP about preferable times for rp.

Application

Character Application
Name:
Gender:
Race:
Religion: (Optional. If you'd like this to remain a secret, even Out-of-Character, I will not count excluding this against you.)
Profession: (This generally is one to two of either Diviner, Engineer, or Smith. Smiths craft the parts, Diviners provide the power and Engineers design the machines. I reserve the right to close off any applications for one of these professions temporarily if there is an overwhelming number of them compared to others. Mainly Engineer, as most people will likely want to be the ones inventing.)
General Attire:
Brief History: (I don't require a huge 1000 word essay on your character if you don't want to. As long as you can summarize their general history, how they were qualified to receive the letter, and reasoning for joining in anything over a paragraph or two I'll be happy with it. Most of my best characters' history were made from improving when asked about it.

That is all I have to say on the matter. If you have any comments or concerns please voice them in the thread and I will address them the moment I read them. Other than that I hope you enjoyed reading, i hope you kept an open mind and finaly I hope to hear support for this idea rather than overwhelming criticism due to how bad the skill is. Trust me, I promise this roleplay will not be nearly as bad as the skill. Anywho, can't wait to hear from you all!
