Seekers of Secrets.
« on: September 12, 2019, 04:28:33 PM »

While not so receptive to broader Acha society, Merry Berry finds herself quite at home within the ranks of her own little Tribe, the Seekers of Secrets. The Seekers are a strange, loosely-knit bunch who share a general interest in hunting for the paranormal, forgotten, or otherwise hidden secrets of the Swamp around them, and sometimes even the world beyond it. Some are more serious about this passion than others, but all are welcome so long as they have a legitimate interest in their adventures.

Even though Merry is the Founder of the tribe, she doesn't hold an especially high position within it that garners her any undue respect. However, she does try her best to accompany most of the Tribe's expeditions herself, and often finds herself bringing home the widest collection of interesting objects (and stories) from her exploration- things that are something of a badge of honor within The Seekers. Practical value of the items gathered in a ghost hunt or investigation means very little to most Seekers, as they prefer to think of the value of their work in the stories it comes with.

Members of the tribe are not officially ranked, and all are treated equally under the rules, such that there even are rules. However, those with more gumption and propensity to join in on interesting and dangerous expeditions and hunts are generally seen as more dedicated and respectable on an unofficial level, and often find themselves taking home the more interesting fruits of the Tribe's labor.

Those who do not participate in the grand expeditions the Tribe prides itself in are still welcome to join in the fun however, especially in telling stories of their own. Even moreso than all kin naturally do, Merry and the other Seekers enjoy telling and hearing tales of supernatural occurrences, real or embellished. On nights of the full moon, despite wind or rain or snow, they often hold open meetings where anyone at all interested can share and listen to tales of other kin's stories of being chased by ghosts, stumbling upon ancient burial grounds, or other strange and interesting occurrences. Often these nights are accompanied by free food gathered by the tribe, so it's fairly common for kin to arrive and make something up on the spot just for an easy meal- but Merry doesn't seem to mind.

When not telling stories, The Seekers enjoy doing exactly what their name implies- uncovering mysteries and secrets hidden in the swamp. This may come in the form of ghost hunting, exploring unusual places, or simply tracking down the source of rumors. However, the most common designation for this is considered an "expedition" or "mission."

In a meta sense, an expedition can be defined as a roleplay involving one or more members of the tribe with a goal in line with the tribe's as a whole; that is, uncovering interesting, new information (no matter the quality of it). The more kin that are involved, the more prestigious the mission is considered- after all, the more kin are interested in the answer to the question posed by the expedition, the more "valuable" the information to be gained is. While there won't be a distinct point counter system or anything, generally, the more active a kin is in this pursuit, the more respect they will have from the rest of the guild.

Some time in the future, there will likely be open roleplays dedicated to the most interesting questions posed by the tribe, which will be tagged as Seekers: in their title. If any of those are active, they will be listed under the header of this post! Kin that are not members of the Seekers are welcome to join in these roleplays as well, if they have any interest. Perhaps we can make a few friends along the way.


Seekers Members.

There are simply two tiers of members in The Seekers: Core Members, and Interested Parties. Core Members are those actively willing to participate in most missions thrown their way. Interested Parties, on the other hand, may or may not be interested in missions, or they may just want to hang out at the big group gatherings and eat, drink and tell stories.

The graphics used here are from the free-to-use graphics thread located here. I'll make one for everyone free of cost, of course.

To apply to join the Seekers, all we need is the following:

Code: [Select]
[b]Username:[/b] Your own username, so I can reply when I have your graphic finished and posted.
[b]Kin's Name:[/b] Self explanatory.
[b]Kin's Image:[/b] This is usually an uncert. But if you have a version with accessories, that can be used too, as long as it's on the official base!
[b]Core Member, or Interested Party?:[/b] Do you think your kin is interested in following the Seekers around on jobs, or have they arrived just to tell stories and play games? Interested Parties can always graduate to Core Members later on, so don't stress too much about this!
