Hoowah, Seburd Hedz Klan! Hoowah, Bluud Gud!
A new orc clan has emerged to reclaim the Yew orc fort. The Severed Heads will be mainly blue (unless it is your express wish to be red, in which case you will still be welcome but prepare for statloss.)
We will RoE with the other RP guilds and the main goal here is ROLEPLAY. If all you want is to be a PK with a funny name, contact the ice island orcs.
We are set up in a small house just a screen away from the Yew orc fort.
As of now, there are only a few members, but hopefully we will grow in time.
Do not worry about the language! It is easy to learn.
Go here to find out how to create your orc!
If in doubt, ask in IRC or send Xutag or myself a PM. As for your skills, the most important thing is no magery. Once your orc has reached the rank of Grunt, you will be allowed to make a mage if you still wish to do so.
Pease do not macro your stats up to 100/100/25 nor your skills up to GM. 70 weapon skill is more than enough for a starting orc, and no single stat should be above 75.
There will be equipment restrictions, and we will provide what you need to start with. Your very first mission is to acquire your own orc helmet from an orcish lord.
We will use a rank system that is a mix of Europa's orcs and the Shadowclan. All starting orcs will be Runts (the equivalent of Gruntee) until they have proven themselves worthy of the grunt title. This would typically take a few weeks, tops. You must also have 100 STR to become a grunt.
Bloodlines will be as follows:
Choppa - Axe orc
Stabba - Fencing orc
Slasha - Sword orc
Smasha - Mace orc
Twanga - Archer orc
I strongly recommend all non-mojo orcs have archery as a secondary combat skill unless they are playing a Twanga. It will make fort defense much more effective. We also need some orcs with stealing and some with stealth. Remember, we are not really too worried about reaching 7x GM - we want a clan that is strong as a whole.
Mojoki/Mojo/Mojoka are the orc mage ranks, same as SC/BC. Again, you may only make one of these once your orc has reached the rank of Grunt.
The higher ranks will be Warboss, Nob, and finally Elder.
For those wanting to make stealthers or anything other than the standard orc archetypes, we can figure out appropriate titles, but we will keep things simple to begin with.
We will start as Runts, only myself and Xutag are grunts for now just to have some structure, so there will be no mojos or Bosses to begin with. We will determine who is the rightful Warboss through klomping after a while - might makes right. The warboss must be prepared to defend his title every now and then when an orc grows strong enough to mount a challenge.
These "klomp fests" can vary in style, and for the first one in a few weeks, all the grunts will have a group fistfight without armor or bandages. After that, the we will have two klomp fests per month,
We will RoE with the other RP guilds (Yew, HS, etc) and if the clan members think it prudent, we might war some non-RP guilds. That will be up for discussion later, but I'm thinking it could be fun to have agreements with some of the non-RP guilds too. We will occasionally raid dungeons and other RP towns, if we're not busy defending the fort.
Language will be based on Europa orcs language - SC/BC are based on Tolkiens dark speech. If that is your preference, then that is fine - as long as we understand each other and sound orcish. We can always chat in /guild if you are unsure of how to say something. If you used to play SC or BC and want to use that language, no worries. We won't be too strict, the important thing here is to have fun.
Our first interaction with Yew was one of the funniest times I've had on IPY2 in my 6-7 weeks here. And with the early growth spur of the clan, there should be many more of those to come!
So PM myself or Xutag with your orcs name, or come into #ipyrp on irc.stratics.com or post a thread in our forum.
Hoowah Seburd Hedz! Hoowah Bluud Gud!
