Rynmere OOC Social Thread

The door to each of the known families and other signifant individuals opens as a loud knock is heard revealing a tall, yet elegantly dressed man. He holds a letter in hand and offers it forward. Once received, he bows respectfully and goes on his way.

To the Seven Noble Houses of Rynmere:

The House of Andaris formally invites ye to a celebration hosted in their esteem. The grand fete will take place at the Andaris Gala and Winery on the 64th Trial of Ashan at the 18th break. The honor of your presence is requested.

Regrets only,
Lord Quincy Andaris

OOC Info

So this party is technically for anyone apart of the Noble families. IC that's just the way it goes, the elite are just a bunch of selfish meanies :D But OOC we obviously want everyone to be able to join the fun, even you lowly peasants that make the world go round :D. Few things though:

1) Each Noble invited (anyone with a family name) will have a +1 where they will be able to bring a date, IC I think that'd be a given, social prototypical and all. I would suggest to anyone not apart of the families and has an IC friend who is, to make use of that relationship :lol: If you'd like, we can possibly get you a job as a waiter/waitress, musician, cook or something like that if interested. Might have to talk to Kingdom about that. I'm just spitballing ideas here.

2) Wear something nice. Maybe buff out the armor you knights or give the boots the ol' spit shine Warricks. We are the 1% after all 8-)

3) And most importantly, have fun and rub elbows with new people!

Flora and Fauna have been added to the Link Map. There isn't much on it currently, but people have been asking for info on Jacadon and Volareon, so it is all up now! Enjoy!

If you would like to create a animal or plant specific to Rynmere, post your finished idea to the Development Thread for consideration and approval.

UPDATE
Doesn't look like much but I spent a few hours writing Rynmere Housing information up today. Hopefully this helps answer any questions new or old players might have, and influence the RP a little.

UPDATE TO RYNMERE LORE
Marriage & Divorce
Arranged marriages within noble lines are very common in Rynmere and often women don’t have a choice regarding who they marry, especially if their parents or even grandparents find a suitable match for them before they do. It is not unusual for two people to wed without ever having previously crossed paths, and couples generally begin their journey together as man and wife as complete strangers. Though love is not always formed within these sorts of arrangements, a strong working relationship is typically built over the years (arcs) as divorce is out of the question, in fact it doesn’t even exist within the Kingdom of Rynmere.

Rules of engagement are simple, with no women under the age of fifteen and not men younger than seventeen being permitted to marry, the only obvious exception being the king. Unlike other territories across Idalos, it is the male’s side of the arrange who must put their best foot forward, offering a handsome dowry of a sum amounting to no less than one thousand gold nels, or a house on an acre of land. A woman has no power to refuse a noble suitor if their parents are in agreement and the terms of their exchange are met.

After arrangements are made a public notice is put up in the city and any local newspapers in order to ensure that there are no grounds for prohibiting the binding, a close blood relation, existing spouses, children, debt, or religious vow all to be acknowledged by family or members of the public who might know more details. If the terms are agreeable and no nasty rumours come forward, the wedding date is set and the marriage goes ahead as planned, however, if there are grounds for concern the parents have the power to call off the wedding with the other party publically shamed for their misdeeds.

Under two Virtues of the Seven (thou shalt not betray, and thou shalt endure), there are no grounds for divorce for the noble or common man, including heinous acts of rape, adultery, and even incest. Taking a barren wife (for it is always believed to be the female at fault), is no excuse for a marriage to be dissolved, and couples are expected to live under the same roof for the rest of their days. Even those forced to endure a torturous binding dare not speak of what they suffer, for if any ill fate were to befall one of them, the other would be suspected of arranging their murder and spend the next season in the dungeon awaiting a (un)fair trial, where they are later put to death by way of hook, blade, hanging, or fire, depending on several factors including the method in which their spouse was slain.

For a noble, marriage cannot take place in a season with an odd amount of days (trials), or during fasting in Cylus, both of which are considered extremely bad luck. This means all weddings take place in the season of Saun, the hottest part of the year (arc). Commoners, on the other hand, are able to get married during any season bar Cylus. Treasures are exchanged during the ceremony, and though these have traditionally been family heirlooms, rings, or swords, it is up to the individuals involved to choose what it is they gift the other, with men going all out to outdo their forefathers, siblings, and friends.

After the wedding, the couple are locked in a room for three nights, with no food, but access to water and sweets. It is believed that during this time the marriage will be consummated with even the bitterest of rivals emerging as two bodies now one of mind. In the event of a second marriage (obtainable only by commoners), often viewed as a sign of wealth outside of noble lines, this tradition is forfeited in the belief that only one marriage can be sacred, even while a second is and sometimes must be tolerated.

UPDATE
The Rynmere Gazette is now in action! Would love to find one, two, or even three PCs who want to have their character's work for the paper. Posting the gazette will count as a job thread.

UPDATE
The Iron Hand is getting some love. I will be adding info sometime over the weekend, between mountain climbing, hippy adventures and cook off! For now it gives you a bit of an idea on what armor looks like for every level. Pictures are surprisingly hard to find (thanks for the help Nir'wei & Elyna). Might need two more for the sailors. Want something light I think, I guess sailors don't want to sink if they fall overboard? Any questions, concerns? Send it to my PM.
