In Character Introduction

In a motley cellar of an old manor between dusty and decaying tomes sits a large thick book titled ôOrder of Saradominĺs Lightö. Opening the book and glossing over centuries-old pages the book tells of the rise of the order in response to the God Wars which played Gielnor in the Third Age. The order though not as famous as the White Knights or the other Saradomin orders it achieved some renown, power and influence. After the end of the of the God Wars the order entered a sharp decline with many of its members leaving the order or their lines dying off over the ages. Now the title of Marshall sits with Francois dĺfrontenac, the newest noble to inherit the now honorific title. Does the story of the order really end there? Francois dĺfrontenac doesnĺt seem to think so, small contingents of unlanded knights, roaming monks and devout followers of Saradomin have been seen entering the shambled estate of the dĺfrontenac family. Rumours are abound of Francois dĺfrontenac raising money for an expedition to retake the orderĺs old fortress.

OOC Introduction

The Order of Saradomin's Light or more commonly referred simply to as "The Order" is a Saradominist holy order, much like the White Knights. Its purpose is to purge Gielnor of corrupting influences on Gielnor such as Demons, Zamorakian cultists and the vile Goblin tribes. It consists of holy men and women, knights and devout followers of Saradomin fighting for Saradomin and his followers. The order currently controls very little territory and holds little influence ľ however, as the story progresses that will change.

Rules:

1. Don't god-mod, auto-hit or engage in meta-gaming.
2. Please adhere to Jagex rules.
3. Do not harass or bully other members.
4. Keep an open mind in roleplay and out of character
5. have fun :)
6. we have a zero tolerance policy towards racism, sexism and any form of discrimination.
7. If you've read and agreed to these rules put "Zamorak smells" in your application.
8. don't be a jerk or a creep.
9. What the admins say, goes.

Making mistakes:

Look, we all make mistakes or mess up whether it be in our personal interactions out of character or accidentally breaking a roleplay rule like unintentionally meta-gaming. In these cases, its best to admit you made a mistake and ask for help. I myself am not the greatest roleplayer by far (I suck at combat for example).

Time commitment:

We don't ask much in terms of time commitment if there is an event you want to take part in that you can't we can reschedule. We all lead busy lives I go to University and have social obligations to keep to.

Policy on Realism & Magic:

On Realism:

In the past many roleplayers on World 41 have taken a very, very narrow view on realism. While we certainly though don't think that a warrior in full steel armour should be able to do a flip, we do feel that we can give "realism" lee-way in favour of keeping the story going and bringing out the more fantasy elements of it.

This also applies to the aesthetics of the world the more unrealistic/fantasy-esque elements of Jagex's RuneScape we largely embrace.

A very narrow understanding of History has often also been applied to Roleplay on World 41 in the past. Particularly ideas about religion, gender, social and so on. They tended to be quite restrictive we don't adhere to this as it clearly contradicts RuneScape's well-established lore.

On Magic:

Magic is more than encouraged and will be a major theme in the roleplay. We take a high/medium-fantasy approach to magic. In our world enchanted weapons, magical beats and fantastical elements are all present. Any disputes about magic whether it be in a story, in a fight or a war are subject to reasonable discussion with the parties involved. We prefer not to have strong rigid rules surrounding this instead improvising on the go.
