Welcome Home Recruit IronMonk


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Band of the Red Hand IronMonk. Best org at DM so you made a great choice.


*hands a brew* (No spilling that now or the Redarms will be after you)  :D


I'm Tay, the Executive Officer and I'm in charge of Raw Recruits (that's you). If you have any problems, feel free to PM me or add me to msn. Now the others will be along to say hi soon and the MG will be giving you the amazing Official Spiel when he gets back from his leave of absence on Sunday. So you have plenty time to prepare yourself, tie down any loose clothing, secure your teeth and generally make sure it doesn't blow you right up the flag pole.  :o  ;D


Have fun here and I look forward to seeing you at the off sites for your training.

Welcome IronMonk!  Glad to see you took my advice and showed up here!  I'm Jea, current Captain-General of the Archers!


*hands a brew tea and some extra special chocolate fudge brownies*  Those are my two specialties, and as I do not drink brew, I have tea instead! ;)  Oh yeah, *hands a flaming shot as well*  And thats the archers official drink, lol!

Sory about the delay in posting the Official Spiel, but as has been mentioned, I wasn't around over the weekend since I was back home with no internet. And in between catching up and cursing my erractic internet, I've finally found it here!


I see you've been warned about the Official Speil! It's on its way! But are you ready? Holding all your Brews tightly? Got your hat and coat safely on?


And a M-G Brew for the eagle-eyed Bander who spots a difference with the spiel!


*official spiel*


Welcome IronMonk! 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, Taymist 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 newspaper, The Hornsounder

- posting in the monthly roll call in the Band's private boards here 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 very 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!Keep an eye out for one! 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 Lottery set up in our Dicing with Jak O' the Shadows board, which you will see once you have signed up for the private boards here at DM. There are also several games 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 Regiment, and can fight anyone in the Band! We'll give you a practise fight so you can get your bearing until you are ready to challenge a Bander. Also look out for our festivals of various games using the dice roller and ORG Game. There are many staff members for the Game who will be willing to help you out.


Once you have been added to the list for the private boards here, 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 you have a Facebook account, search for the group 'DM Band of the Red Hand'. Click to apply. Then PM/email Tay, Horn or I to say you've requested to join, and we'll accept it. I'm using Facebook as another way to communicate with Banders!


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 IronMonk a Marshal-General's Special Battle Brew*
