❢The time has come, my dear maggots and roachesthe time of the cleansing so quickly approaches,We ask for the heads that are swollen with mudwe ask for the hands outstretched from the bloodIn leverage we pull those so clean from disgraceShe damned help the humans clean filth from their race✵So gather your arrows and sharpen your stakeIn might of our thunder the mountains will quakeThe oceans will part, our cause will bend treesThe stampeding footsteps like thousands of beesYour Brothers by brother, she Mother by kinFighting in justice through unholy sin✵In allies we find those so willing to giveAnd deem all opposing unworthy to liveSo offer your armies and glory beholdThe future will offer long life and age old✵✙ The Order of The Damned ✙ What is The Order?The order is a power faction dedicated to controlling, categorising and refining the vampire population to a base-few individuals, which will mean culling 90% of its current diseased unless they meet The Orders [high] standards, upon which occasion said diseased will be permitted to live under The Orders watchful eye, and should even the smallest of lines be crossed, [which includes complaints of killing members of the public from trustworthy sources] execution of said accused will be imminent. Why do The Order wish to do this?To ensure a safe future for the regalia public, as well as bring dignity to the vampiric curse. On top of this, both Luthien and Frank are both expected to live longer than most naturally would, and wish not to deal with the problem that is their own kind in what will be their long future, and as such, Luthien is taking precautions to eliminate the problem entirely. How does The Order work?The order directly and in its purest form is a council of high Vampires** dedicated to leading the indirect actions of its sister covens, factions and members, however Its authority covers ONLY what regards vampirism and The Order directly. We are not asking to own your factions, but simply own the vampires within them. All other matters are entirely to the coven/faction/members. **[High vampires are vampires descended from what is considered to the order as a noble bloodline, which depends entirely on who created them and where the original culture originates from.- Note that these are not backed up by the lore, nor do they offer any special treatment from, or apply to anyone but vampires, those from within the order, or those wishing to play along. We simply wanted to add a little more complexity to the hierarchy of the good RPers and the otherwise undesirables. Our personal bloodlines- including Luthien and Franks, will be released shortly] How will this affect my faction? Should you harbour no vampires, not at all. However, should the order find out you keep vampires amidst your kin, they will ask for the said damned to be turned over and executed, or categorised amidst their books and then kept watch over by the order, depending on the final judgment of the Redwood or Blackwood in command. Resistance is only mildly inconvenient, and force will be executed swiftly and without warning. What are we asking?We are asking for the pledge of assistance in these dire times. We need able bodies to help vanquish the infinite waves of foul and damned creatures that threaten the future and safety of the Regalian public. We will back our actions up in both RP AND PvP. [Now don't tell me killing some little wampires doesn't sound fun.] What do we offer in return?To any particularly loyal factions or those wishing to partake in the unity of many for one just cause, we will offer a finely crafted uniform of The Order, made by myself, Luthien. I will release it in several styles and colours, and you will have the ability to edit your own face onto its clothing, using your preferred program. We also offer protection and the actuality of the term "one for all, all for one." Should you stand by The Order and abide by our laws on vampirism, the order will stand by you, offering her refined diplomatic skills should you find yourself in a sticky situation. It is most important to note;We are not recruiting individuals, but seeking alliances. Should you wish to join The Order directly, do that which will impress us, and WE will invite YOU. Also note that The Order will not recruit ONLY vampires. We are most interested in those who offer legitimate part in the greater good. OOC NOTES;Please note that the order are not posing as "good" vampires. They do not consider themselves good or evil. They consider themselves what they are; not morally torn on the decision to take life in order to sustain their own...To those whom this may put off..the survival of a few vampires in light of the demise of many is worth the small price, no? We are happy for you to hunt our heads once we have accomplished what we are setting out to achieve, but for now i do hope differences can be put aside. We will declare war on any factions hosting large amounts of vampires in hopes that it discourages the creation and recruitment of more. Our surrender terms will be the curing or execution of the masses, by either The Order themselves, or whomever The Order may turn the delinquents over to. Help us take down the filth, and hold The Order up as example for those of Vampiric kind, an example for the Vampire roleplayers of Massivecraft.
