There is a group of people, relatively small for most gatherings of Fallen London’s more Erudite or Societal upbringings, and certainly more varied than such, who gather at one of their “members”, for lack of a better term, abode. Meeting once a month, on a seemingly random day, the invitations themselves are extremely hard to procure, and depend on the host of the next meeting. The purpose of the meetings themselves are known only to those who attend the gatherings, whom themselves are the only ones who know the parties exist in the first place. A study of tautology, if you will. However, for those who do know, it is not of significant importance to the Fifth City, as a whole, for the dinners and the conversations that accompany them are simply that: dinner and conversation. There is no theme, set or otherwise, dedicated by these meetings, and the topic may vary, from the current economical state, to the latest attempt of the Revolutionaries, to one member’s stay at the Polythreme, or maybe the Iron Republic, to the state of affairs of the Rubbery Folk. In fact, for such a casual collaboration, the amount of secrecy and complexity might seem frivolous, or downright mad. But, then again, this is Fallen London.
[i]Now that the introduction is finished, Welcome One and All. This is my attempt at a casual roleplay for those of us who wish to simply play our characters in a little dinner of sorts. I will state the rules momentarily, but for now, I simply wish to establish that this is just me, wishing to act out my character in a more detailed sense than the game, and to give my character a bit more sense and depth, as well as to pass the time. Now, before I explain further, the rules.
[/i][ul][li]No Godmodding: For those of you unfamiliar with roleplay terms, Godmodding refers to enacting an action or thought of a character you do not control. This includes: Having your character doing something, then stating what the other person’s character feels about said action; If in a match of fisticuffs, automatically hitting the other character without the controllers consent/ automatically dodging attacks and basically being untouchable; etc.[/li][li]No Permanent Death: Rather straightforward, I think. This is meant to take place in Fallen London, and perhaps even be in between stories of your own character.[/li][li]No Joining for the Sake of Conflict: Fallen London is a place of fighting and blood, but please don’t just jump in to start/win a fight. This is a dinner party, not the Docks. A fight may occur, if the characters involved are arguing and it escalates as such, or two characters politely agree to a friendly duel to the death, but try to also be good guests.[/li][li]Be Polite to Each Other: An obvious one, which I think we will have no problem with, seeing as from what I’ve seen, the Fallen London Community is very polite.[/li][/ul][i]
I think that covers that. If you are still interested after that lengthy rule gathering, here are the ways to join. First, fill out the below skeleton for your character, and send me a private message. I would prefer to keep the talk in these posts to in character as much as possible. If you are accepted, I will reply, and place you in the guest list below. Second, that’s it, there is only one step.
Strongest Connection (Including ties):
Favorite Attribute (Does not have to be strongest):
Information That May or Not May Be Important (Your Affiliation, Club, Significant Other, Vehicle, Ship, Other Oddities (Soulless, Rubbery, Been to the Iron Republic, etc.)):
How You Acquired This Month’s Invitation:
Any Other Relevant Or Irrelevant Information You Wish To Provide:
A quick note: As this months meeting is taking place at my character’s abode, here are the ways you may acquire an invitation: Through either pickpocketing, persuading, killing, or spotting and simply taking them from either a member of high society, a devil or deviless, a rubbery person, a spy in the great game, or by persuading or finding one from the three sisters of Hunters Keep, [i]or from visiting the Iron Republic and somehow finding it in all that anarchy.
