[INTRO] Welcome Straith


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Band, Straith (nice name btw) great to have you with us.


I'm Tay, the Band's Training Officer and Captain General of the Infantry. Look forward to seeing you at The Barracks for your Raw Recruit week. :D


*hands over several brews*


Corki, the MG will be along soon with the mind blowingly amazing Official Spiel, so hang onto anything moveable (like your head, arms, etc) :wink:


Hope you'll try out the Org Game once you're settled at the off site boards. Get a chance to beat up everything in sight !! Lots of fun.


Meanwhile, the others will be here shortly to say hi, so make yourself at home.

Welcome back to the Band! I'm sure a lot has changed in 7 years, so feel free to tell of times well before most, if not all, of us joined! We'd love to hear them, and we'll share some of our's in the 2 years that the Band has been an ORG again.


Now spiel time! Hold on to your hat because your socks are gonna get blown away!


*official spiel*


Welcome Straith! An email explaining important information about the Band is currently sitting in your inbox! Take a read! Also check your PMs too! ;)


Basically, the Band of the Red Hand is the Travel and Music ORG at DM! By signing up for the Band, you have joined the successful Raw Recruit Scheme. By signing up for the off board site, you will be able to experience the whole process to the maximum! The Executive Officer, F Horn of Valere, or I, will assign you to one of the three Regiments (Archers, Cavalry, Infantry) for a week, where you will be given various tasks to perform, hoping that you will get a picture of what time in each Regiment is like. After a week with each Regiment, you will be asked to pick your final choice of a Regiment.


While being a Raw Recruit, there is nothing stopping you from earning points like any other Band member. Points lead to promotion within the Band. Below is a list of possible ways to earn points:


- writing reviews on places to visit/holidays you have been on

- writing reviews on music albums and gigs

- replying to other people's reviews and asking questions

- composing Jak O' the Shadow verses

- getting articles published in our monthly newsletter, The Hornsounder

- monthly roll call in the Band's private boards at DM

- any DM project we may have, which includes our Quote Project (speak to Amavia and Angyl)

- and much much more I cannot think of right now!


If you complete your time as a Raw Recruit within 3 to 4 weeks, you will get a special award (called the Raw Recruit Stripe) which you can add to your siggy as well!


While being a Raw Recruit, you get 3 free strikes. This enables you to break Band Law 3 times without being punished by the Redarms, the Band's own police force. If they see any Law breaking, they will either drag you up for a trial or give you a fun spot fine to do (usually 100 lines of something witty). Channeling is a major no-no in the Band. As is spilling Battle Brew, our beloved drink! Once you have used up your 3 strikes, or join the Band's ranks officially, you will face the full force of Band Law like any other Bander does!


Of course, we are not all about working 24/7, as we do let our hair down now and then! We are famous for our bar brawls, which happen frequently! Expect one soon! We also like jokes, tales, funny pictures - things that will make us laugh!


We also have many games - at DM, which can be found in the stickies, or the new Lottery set up on our new Dicing with Jak O' the Shadows board, which you will see once you sign up for the private boards here at DM. There are also several on the off board site as well! Also, take the lessons to learn our ORG Game, based on the luck of dice! You get the selected weapons of your division, and can fight anyone in the Band! It is currently being revised, but the ideas will all be the same! There are many staff members for the Game who will be willing to help you out.


Once you have signed up for the private boards, you will also be able to participate in our lottery game, which takes place in the Dicing With Jak O' the Shadows board. It is a lot of fun, and your winnings can buy you various goodies!


If I have left anything out (which I expect I have!), do not hesitate to ask questions! Someone will be able to answer them for you!


One last thing...


*hands Straith a Marshal-General's Special Battle Brew each*

*swoons from the Spiel*


All forms of the word Spiel when discussing The Spiel should be capitalized. The Spiel has earned it. :D


So, once more a recruit hath come before us to gain acceptance into the Greatest Org at DM!! Your journey will be fraught with difficulties and dangers. And once you are in doesn’t mean you will have instant acceptance. You will have to strive to gain the respect and acceptance of the members of The Band. Some say that I am the most stubborn about giving my friendship and respect to anybody. Prepare yourself for a long and arduous journey.


*looks at his sun dial watch for 15 seconds*


Whew!!! That was rough wasn’t it?! Congratulations!! You have gained my respect and friendship!! Welcome to The Band!!! See you in the Infantry!!


Oh, and as Tay said above; definitely check out the Band’s Org Game. We have our second festival coming up soon and it helps to have some experience in The Game for that. Not required, but helps!


Glad to have you here!


*Passes Straith a Combat Cognac*


Drink up! It’ll put hair on your tongue, and then burn it right back off again!!

Straight, a word of advice... be VERY carefull around Deathdealer/footman/Pinky/Grim/SalonParlorOwnerThingy


He's well.... the pride and joy of our Regiment. But that's beside the point.


Just be very VERY carefull around him!!


Don't say you weren't warned *shifty eyes*
