Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Band Rodelle!!  I'm DJ the XO of the Band.  I'm in charge of the recruits for the Band.  *hand a barrel of brew*  It's great to see you here in the best Org on DM!!  I'll be sending you a PM shortly, so please check your PM box.  If you have any questions, please let me know. Feel free to post on any of our threads.  Jumping in is the best way to get to know the other members of the Band.  Oh, hold onto your socks as our MG will be by shortly with the official spiel!

Welcome Rodelle! I'm Nyn, the Lieutenant-General of the Archers, meaning I'm their second in command. We look forward to seeing you in the Range during your week with us and in the meantime here's a line of flaming shots and a plate of our own Jea's fidge brownies to tide you over.

And yeah, I'd hold on good and tight to those drinks during the Spiel! :D

Welcome to the Band Rodelle! I'm Kara, a member of the Infantry and am also the Quest Mistress (you should have a pm from me to that end). I'm pleased to make your acquaintance and will look forward to seeing you in the Barracks for your RR time.  ;D


Here, have this Guinny...make that 3...to keep you occupied whilst waiting for the Spiel. And beware..it has been known to blow peoples clothes clean off, so make sure you've got everything strapped down tight! ;)

Before I forget...The Official Spiel!


*official spiel*


Welcome Rodelle! 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, Direwolf Jon, 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

- writing restaurant reviews!

- 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 Brid 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...
