LedZepMan - welcome to the Band of the Red Hand ORG!!!


Recommended Posts

I am so surprised no-one has started a welcome thread earlier! Anyway, time to correct that! So welcome to the Band, LedZepMan!


The Band is currently going through a transistional phase at the moment since we are moving back to DM, so please bear with us. Things are quiet (or busy with some of us), but I plan to change that with an activity-based points system. So the more active you are in posting in certain threads, the better for you in getting points, and then promotions!


I have asked you to be added to the Band's usergroup, and I will get back to you to let you know once you have been added. For now, just relax and hopefully a few Banders will be along to help you and offer some expert advise.


And wait for the Official Spiel - for you shall be wowed!

*Soars in through the open door and lands neatly on his feet right in front of LedZepMan.* Another recruit... how cute!


*Pats Led on the head.* That rhymes... I think I'll call you Led.  ;D

You may call me Loran... the Master of Mischief.


*Passes Led a couple Flamin' Shots and downs one himself to show Led how it's done.* Do it quick... it feels amazing.

Anyway... watch out for the bandies that will surely arrive. They're newly brewed and quite weak.


Anyway... I'm one of the Archers so drop by our Range sometime. ;)


Before I forget... Welcome to the Band Led!  ;D

*Slams back several Flaming Shots*


Holy that stuff is AWESOME!!!


*Bows to Loran, and stumbles slightly from the total awesomeness of the shots*


Thank you all for the shots and the welcomes. Cant wait to chug a few barrels of anything and join in the super awesomeness of a tavern brawl.


The next time I see you all, may the brews be flowing, the women tolerable, and the brawling marvelous!

It seems like I am slacking with my posting of The Official Spiel for new members. Maybe I should have less M-G Brew...


Anyway, time to correct the wrong, so here is the Official Spiel!


*official spiel*


Welcome LedZepMan! 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...

*shakes is his little booties as he accepts the M-G Brew*


Everyone was right, the spiel bloweded me away.


*guzzles his first M-G brew down, careful not to spill a drop, and staggers in amazement*


Thank you MG sir. I am truly inspired and honored, and my tongue is beating up my mouth for not having more M-G brew.


Can't wait to get started on my other training weeks. Hope to meet lots of people.
