Hiya Jack!! Welcome to the Band!


As her Magnificence, Royal Shinyness of the Stars and Queen of all that is Wonderfull, Karaj mentioned before, I'm the other RLO of the Infantry and I can't WAIT to get you in our Barracks :)


*Hands the Recruit a Guinny or 5 and slaps him on the shoulder*


Put your feet up, hold on to your socks and any other free hanging bits and pieces, for when our MG throws his Spiel at you it will literally blow you away! (hopefully right to our offsite boards lol)


Welcome home, Jack!

Ah, I see I have been welcomed well! Anyway, 'tis not me who is being welcomed. So, jackdaw, grab your hat and coat, and make sure your socks are pulled up high as you are going on a journey like no other journey you've been on before!


*official spiel*


Welcome jackdaw! 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...


*hand jackdaw a Marshal-General's Special Battle Brew*

Just like The Exorcist, that gets better every time I see it!! Thank you Corki for that particularly moving Spiel!


*Looks around for his socks*


Forgot to pull my up and hold them!


Well, welcome to the Org with more abbreviations than any other Org! I’m Footy the Lieutenant General (LG) of the Infantry or second in command of the besterest Regiment in the Band. Corki, the Marshal-General (MG), the grand poo-ba, the big cheese, the all knowing (of very little), all powerful (unless he gets in a fight) leader of the Band, gave you the Spiel. The Infantry Recruit Liaison Officers (Those that will help you during your introduction to the Band) have already greeted you.


In retrospect, while looking back in a historical sense of the past before now, I’d say the best way to enjoy the Band is while drinking large amounts of any of the numerous tasty beverages we have in the Band. Drink them, drink them all, and drink them often. I’ve only survived as long as I have by staying in a state of perpetual fog induced by drink!


Once you’ve drank enough (HA!! Like that is possible), come check out the Org Game and learn how to stab, beat, trample, or shoot somebody until they yield!

Your account has been approved. So now head off to the recruit board. Sign into the Recruit task thread, and Horn, the XO, will be along later to give you the dates of when you spend your time with each of the three Regiments.

Welcome to the Band, JD :D lovely to have you join us.


I'm Tay, the Band's Training Officer for recruits and the Captain General of the Infantry. I'll see you when you get to the Barracks. Meantime have lots of fun and if you have any problems, just shout me.


Oh yeah, and don't include anything in your sig that you don't want to. There's absolutely no requirement for that at all. Most people just include things like the Orgs they belong to or any bandings or bondings they have. Totally up to you. :)




Kait, your sig is too long and its going to get reported to admin sooner or later if you don't change it. If you have a picture sig, two lines of text is the maximum.
