Ajah Letter

One of the things that Us reds 'really' need to look at (as it's just me myself and I) it where we want to take the Red Ajah. We have a solid base as to what we stand for, but the Red Ajah will drastically with the BT now announced as the WT "equal" in the world.

 

 

The Red Ajah

The Sisters of the Red Ajah are the guardians of humanity. The Reds are at the forefront of the battle against the Shadow, doing what must be done to protect not only themselves, but everyone else. They are reviled as man-haters, as cold-hearted witches, as the cruellest of women – but this is not who they are. Look closer at the Red Ajah, and you will see… Reds love men. Not like, but love with all their hearts. They go to extreme lengths to save some of them – those poor men who can channel – from hurting themselves and others. Their Sisters feel sorrow and pity in their duties for they know that the channeller is harmed. But they know that in so doing, they are prolonging his life and ensuring that he will not destroy everyone he cares for while rotting alive.

As a Red you can do anything you choose except bond a Warder. A Red cannot know the next man she will have to gentle – and how cruel of them would it be to ask an Aes Sedai to gentle her own Warder? The Reds are selfless in purpose, forfeiting everything by becoming that which men most hate and fear, while keeping them alive. But for all the Red Ajah does their Sisters are still hated and shunned. The Reds embrace the hate and are made stronger for it. Nowhere else will you find the unity and pride of the Red Ajah.

If you think the Red Ajah might be the right Ajah for you, contact Maegan Sedai, Head of the Red Ajah (MSN: arie_designs@hotmail.com ; email: arie_designs@gmail.com ) or visit their site

I'm thinking of Opening up the Reds Halls to allow *gasp* Male Channelers the chance to LIVE in the Tower. Alongside the Red Sisters.

 

Literally stating them as Brothers of the Black Tower... or something nifty like that. *pines for Telcia's awesomness of words*

In 997 NE the face of the Red Ajah changed drastically as everything the Red Sisters had believed was shaken from its very core.

I assume this is the letter we send out to accepted or novices?  If so... I think this should work... let me know if I'm wrong on the premise of this and I'll rewrite.

 

Dear [Accepted's Name Here],

 

Didn't expect a private message from the Red Ajah, did you?  Well, before you hit that delete button please give us a few minutes of your time to explain a bit about who we are and what it is we do here at the DRPSW and why YOUR CHARACTER might fit with our ajah better than you might first think.  If you're not the least bit interested after this letter, no worries... we're sure to play together in the future no matter where you go; however... if we've gotten your interest a little bit feel free to reply to this message and ask for more information or a chat with one of our friendly members.  We'd really love to hear from you!

 

What Was...

In DRPSW history, way back in the Age of Legends, the Red Ajah was like all Ajahs... simply a group of women and men who had a similar interest or goal.  [sUPER SECRET RED AJAH KNOWLEDGE ONLY ALERT!]  While the Reds do not know what that goal had been prior to the breaking, they do know what it became thanks to an ancient Ter'Angreal which recorded a secret message from a brother of the Ajah to his sisters.  That male, in a heartfelt plea to his sister to protect the world from him and his fellow male channelers, begged his sisters to take up the cause of preventing another breaking of the world... namely by gentling male channelers where-ever they found them so that none would have to endure what he had.

 

What Is...

The Reds of Jordan's book series carried out their mission to protect the world with a zealousness that is frightening to behold, here at the White Tower DRPSW, the Reds can be just as zealous but their passion for their cause is out of a sense of duty, pity, and even love for those men who most often revile them for their actions. 

 

Few people outside of the ajah truly understand how difficult it is to be a Red sister, hated and feared by even her fellow Sisters of the Tower (not to mention all male channelers and a lot of the world) ... constantly suspect and alone even among her peers.  For this reason, the Red Ajah is often seen as the most insular and 'family-like' of the ajahs.  Where there is often vicious politics within ajahs that can literally tear ajahs apart, the reds work with such a focus and lack anyone else who they can turn to, that they are almost forced together. 

 

In a world that hates you... when you must do the most terrible things in order to save the world and prevent men from rotting alive... who else can understand you but other reds?  As a side note: our ajah on the ooc level often draws back old players again and again who miss the friendships they create within our ajah that extend far beyond the DM website walls.  Really we are a great group to work with.

 

What Will Be...

With the Black Tower and the White Tower on a tenative peace and the Amyrlin Seat having acknowledged the Black Tower as the White's equal... the Red Sisters have begun to feel tensions they've never had to face before. 

 

Some do not believe any male channeler is safe to be near; some can not forget the sisters who have died by the Black Tower's hands and those who yet remain as their prisioners... unable to return home ever again and so their bitterness and heartache over the recent decisions of the Hall have grown. 

 

On the far opposite side of the spectrum, some Reds have believe with their whole hearts that this is the first soundings of the wardrums calling the Ajah together once again... male and female reds whose hearts beat with blood as true and pure as the crimson of their banner.  These bold Sisters have begun to dream of, and speak of, reunification and some truly mad or hopeful Reds have even considered going to the Black Tower to speak with them about the secrets of the Ter'Angreal ... despite the tragedy of the last visit.

 

If the Reunificationist Reds leave the Tower in the hands of the Traditionalist Reds, what direction would the Ajah take?  Would the Red Ajah do more than bump heads with the Hall of the Tower?  Would drastic measures be taken... or would the Red Ajah somehow, amidst all the fear and madness, find a new and just as important purpose?  Perhaps some new way to protect the world from another breaking?  Or... can the Moderate Reds, whose ideals lay between both extremes, keep the Tower's largest Ajah from falling apart at it's seams?

 

The Red Sisters call themselves Guardians of Humanity... does your character have what it takes to see that title through to whatever future that title may have at the DRPSW?  All the Ajahs offer you a concept to play as a full Sister... a healer, a warrior, a philosopher... but, we reds come to you offering a challenge:  Can your character help us change the future of her world?

*jaw drops*

 

Longer than I expected. I'll have to read over it a few more times and think on it. It reveals almost a little too much of what we may be planning, but this isn't a bad thing. *nods*

 

Very well done. I'll post again my thoughts. :D

*shrug*  Thanks.  Sorry to overwhelm.  Do what you feel you need to with it (shorten if you like) I sincerely don't mind.  I was just throwing out a suggestion to be helpful.  I'm far from playing a red right now and can't say I have the best grasp on things when compared to those of you who have been here while I was off doing the RL thing.

 

*hugs*
