Welcome Colmana!!

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the BotRH! I'm 12th of the infantry Regiment! Which is one of three Regiments[with their respective drinks](Infantry[Guinfantry], Cavalry[bandy], Archers[Flaming Shot]) Here you'll get to meet the band members as they try to recruit you to their Regiment! Don't Choose yet as you need to go through the Raw Recruit phase. Don't Worry, Corki(our Marshal-General) will be around to fill you in on all the official stuff... in the mean time...

Yeah, you kinda picked an odd time to join, It's evening for you, but for a large number of the members it's the morning, so you only get strange people like 12th and myself saying hello to you. And I'm not even sure that 12th is a real person, I'm starting to think he's just a machine of some sort. I'm starting to think of him as "Automated Response Unit #12" *winks at 12th* (just kidding ^_^)


BUT! I promise you lots of people will show up later today (while you're sleeping), Corki will be one of them and he'll give you his Official Spiel about being in the band.


*waits with baited breath for the much anticipated Official Spiel*

Here it is!!!! Every Banders' favourite post!!!! ;)


*official spiel*


Welcome Colmana! An email explaining important information about the Band is currently sitting in your inbox! Take a read!


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 new 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 (currently a Battle Project, so speak to Horn if interested)

- 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 4 free strikes. This enables you to break Band Law 4 times without being punished my 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 4 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, and 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!


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...
