|Subject: Application Information: All New Applicants Start Here Thu Sep 23, 2010 9:41 am|| |
Thanks for your interest in The Highland Confederacy. To help us to start the process and get the sails full of wind, please fill out the application below. To do this start a new thread in this forum with your character name or proposed character name in the subject. Applications are in-character and out of character in nature. Thanks and we look forward to getting to know you.
Before You Apply
Please make sure you have read the founding documents for our society: the Articles of Confederation, and the Bill of Expectations. These are posted permanently in the Confederacy Crier. These two documents govern the responsibilities of our membership towards one another, and towards others in the POTBS world.
In Character Section
IC Intro: Please introduce your character to the Confederacy in an in-character manner. This would most likely be in the form of a letter to the Officers. It doesn't have to be long, just something to introduce who you are and why you are interested in the group IC. Feel free to browse this forum for examples of the kinds of communications created by other applicants.
Character Description: Self explanatory. Note this doesn't necessarily have to be the back story. That can be written later.
Out of Character Section
Player Description: Name, anything you might want to tell us about yourself that will help us get to know you.
Official Forum Name: (name used on FLS official forums)
Profession: We are a Trading Company and as such we are looking for Freetraders and Privateers for the most part. Whichever you choose you are not locked into it, but this gives us an idea of what you are planning. We do accept Naval Officers on a case by case basis but these are more rare in the Confederacy as an over-abundance would not fit with our story. If you are wishing to join as an officer, please make that clear in the app and include a good RP reason for being assigned to the Confederacy.
What is RP to you?
Why would you like to join the Highland Confederacy?
Any questions (about anything in our founding documents, for example)?
As soon as possible you will be contacted by one of our officers. You may find that other society members also respond to your recruitment thread with words of welcome and/or questions. Please feel free to respond. The officer will verify that you have read the founding documents and that you feel this society would be a good fit with your needs. He or she will also do their best to answer any questions that you may have.
If this exchange is satisfactory to both parties you will be admitted as a member of the Highland Confederacy, which will give you full access to all society forums. As soon as possible you will also be extended an in-game invitation.
Deoiridh D'Alembert, Freetrader.
