[A] Lichbanes

Post by Gunnell on Sat Feb 13, 2010 7:00 pm

The Lichbanes have returned!

<Lichbanes> is a heavy roleplaying guild, themed around the Ebon Blade and focused on realistic, lore abiding Death Knight roleplay.

Who are the Lichbanes?

From an in-character standpoint, the Lichbanes were a militaristic sect of the Ebon Blade, formed with the intention of hunting down and eliminating the Scourge's Lieutenants and it's agents who would hide amongst the population of the Alliance, Argent Dawn or otherwise.

After the fall of the Lich King (Given that there is a statue in Dalaran signifying his defeat we generally accept that server wise the Lich King has fallen) the Lichbanes have turned their attention to the elimination of those Scourge forces that remain active throughout former Lordaeron, as well as their own personal conflict against the Scarlet Crusade and Onslaught.


Aims:

We seek to create a 'home' for those Alliance Death Knights who wish to roleplay Knights of the Ebon Blade without joining organisations with different motives - In a sense 'regular' Death Knights'. Our primary focus is heavy roleplaying although will gladly take part in World PVP should the appropriate (IC) situation arise.


Changes

In its absence, Lichbanes has been thrown into B&Q (look it up) and received a new makeover in regards to both theme and structure. Taking influences from both The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and the Hereditary knighthoods of Great Britain and Ireland the Lichbanes has since turned from a random collection of Death Knights into more of a knighthood based around the three specialisations (Blood, Frost and Unholy). Upon joining the Lichbanes the recruit will choose their path and become a Disciple who are essentially Squires of the Knights.


Lord

Ranking leader of the Lichbanes. Little needs to be said here.

Commander

The Commander is second only to the Lord and thus responsible for the Lichbanes should the Lord not be present. He (or she) holds authority over the Darkriders and thus also those below them. Whilst priority in regards to recruitment is given to the Darkriders it is also a responsibility shared with the Commander 'though they are not permitted to assign, nor ascend Disciples.

Darkrider

Amongst the Lichbanes there exist three Darkriders representing each discipline that a Death Knight may follow with it's respective Darkrider leading his/her subordinates. It is their responsiblity to see to the organisation of their discipline such as organisation and training, as well as the assignment of Disciples and select those they deem worthy of Knighthood.

Knight

Knights are the mainstay of the Lichbanes. In the past the Knights were an assortment of Ebon Blade soldiers who volunteered or were chosen to serve under Lord Gunnell, however under its new guise such lack of organisation and discipline has been discarded. Each Knight follows a discipline and rides into battle alongside those who have also chosen their path. There are three types of Knight within the Lichbanes:

  • Rider of Blood
  • Rider of Frost
  • Rider of Unholy


Disciple

Disciples are essentially squires assigned to a Knight, Darkrider or in rare cases the Lord or Commander. In the case of the former two they will always be placed under one who follows their discipline Those who join the Lichbanes regardless of title held prior to service begin as disciples and (as stated many times before) choose the discipline they wish to follow with their equipment issued accordingly.


Recruitment:

As you likely already guessed, for the most part we only accept Death Knights however rare exceptions can be made for characters who would fit into the Ebon Blade theme (EG: Necromancers who were 'freed' at Light's Hope, the presence of a free willed Lich in the Ebon Hold it is not impossible to assume there are a number of these amongst the Ebon Blade).

We are willing to accept all roleplayers, regardless of experience although you should have a basic understanding of the so called "Do's and Don’ts of roleplaying (EG: Power emoting, metagaming, etc), lore and also a possess a good grasp of the English language).


What can you expect from <Lichbanes>?

  • Active and dedicated members.
  • Weekly events.
  • Plotlines
  • Realistic and lore abiding Death Knight role-playing
  • Roleplaying outside of major hubs including Northrend and former Lordaeron.



Interested in joining? Contact a member of <Lichbanes> in-game.

Also note that this thread is very much a work-in-progress with more information constantly being added.

Before anybody brings it up - Yes, I am well aware of Theramore Navy however it has been some what lax in the activity recruitment and we've grown lazy in the recruitment department.

It is down to general nagging, my own favouritism of Graham as a character (and Death Knights in general), support for Lichbanes to return and also seeing many Death Knights riding about without a home that we decided to revive it.

So now I have given you a premature answer, please do not bring up the subject.

It has generally been established that I am some how related to Etular. However unlike him I actually go ahead and create these guilds and then make a new one two we- Why am I saying this?

But the theramore navy was so awesome, unlike all those Death Knights especially now after the Lich Kings ultimate defeat :_:


But has any Guild actually been able to defeat the L.K yet? the Statues should only be acknolwedged if he's been defeated on the realm. :3

Another DK guild?

Let me remember how many of those I've seen...

Six?

And none existed for more than a couple of months.

Make it seven with Lichbanes who "have returned", although I've never seen them. Still, good luck on gathering all that remains of decent DK population after everyone (including me) rerolled a paladin in 3.2 - 3.3. xD

I have only seen three in existance - Ebon Hold on Horde who were probably the best, Hand of Mograine who lasted about two days, and us.

Non of this is final, as alot of people are split between the Navy and Lichbanes thus either 'idea' could go forward.

There was also House Ravencrest & two or more variations of <Knights of the Ebon Blade>.

One more question, though.

Wrath of the Lich King ended the Scourge and the Scarlet Crusade stories (Defeat of the Lich King... And a couple of major blows to the Scarlet Onslaugh which appeared outta nowhere seeing how back in pre-TBC we kicked their asses in Stratholme & Tyr's hand.)

What will you do in Cataclysm? Hunt that one remaining necromancer that is left to plot in Duswood? xD

Also... The whole free necromancers & liches thing... Varian said Death Knights are OK with the Alliance but he never mentioned the other two, so you'll have to plot a deception for your not-so-legal Magi friends. That is if you ever get to find an IC necromancer (or IC lich?! Beats my time traveling terminator concept by far xD)... Personally, for 3 years I have only seen two, and both were far from Ebon Blade concept.

Fairly sure the House Ravencrest was not a "dk guild". Can't say about the variations you speak of, but about that one I'd say no. Smile

That is if you ever get to find an IC necromancer
*waves* Hello Smile
However, don't expect to see him much, I plan on racechanging him, and not getting too involved with anything really.

Either way, since there will be no removing of the DK class with Cataclysm, I don't see why there should be removing of DK-related guilds and concepts. Doesn't make sense, it'd be like saying "DK's aren't allowed to rp any more" or "it's ok to rp a dk in any guild, but NOT in a dk guild".. I mean.. why not? Sounds a bit incoherent to me ^^

Surely they'll move on, same as every other class. That's how I see it, at least Smile

Hmmm...seeing as there are hardly any DK RPers left on Ally side, do I take that this guild is no more then?

Some of us have been talking about DK rp in the channel /LFDK and been thinking about a death knight council of sort since the death knights need to find a new purpose now that the Lich king iis gone.

Nice one Zinkle, very mature -.-

Graham, I'm just looking for a DK guild. Hence why I checked if this guild still existed or not.
And as Ezlbag said, some of us DK RPers would like to have "a place to go to, to seek out other DK's". For some DK's (mine included) (still) feel uncomfortable amongst "The Living". So we talked about a council, like that Horde's War Council and the Stormwind Council etc, etc. Some organisation outside the guilds, so we won't have to rob the DK's away from the guilds.

However, that council thing is better to be mentioned and explained in a different topic then this one, maybe. As soon as we came to an agreement (the dk-players Ezlbag mentioned) we shall post a topic about it, on this forum I guess. Since it's still ideas for now.

He was never an officer.

Also, I do believe it fell on its arse and died.

Good luck with your recruitment. The Death Knight niche is unfilled at both factions at the moment!
