[A] The Gnome Alliance Science Institute

The Gnomeragan Institute for Research, Development and Advancement of the Sciences, also known as the Gnome Science Institute, the Institute of Science or simply GIRDAS is a federal organization within the Technocratic Republics of Gnomeregan, headed by Gnomish Gearholder of Science and Development, Celinda "Blinkie" Blackcog.

The organisation was founded to streamline the research and development of science throughout the Alliance, but was eventually reconstituted into a federal agency within the Technocratic Republics.The Institute consists of several sections, the primary ones being the Science League and the Student Corps. These are further divided into "Fields" with their own goals, methods and resources. Research and development by the League is conducted throughout GIRDAS facilites all across Azeroth, whereas the education of the Student Corps is mainly centered around the GIRDAS HQ in Ironforge's Mystic Ward.

Other branches include the Operations Division, working side-by-side with the Science League to ensure the stability and smooth running of the Institute's proverbial machine, and the Security Department, also known as G-Sec, federal protection and police agents employed specifically to protect GIRDAS assets and interests, often working jointly with Alliance military or city guards.

The Institute operates out of the Ironforge Mystic Ward with a policy of "Job by skillset", offering jobs to any gnome who is a member of the Alliance, tailoring them to each individual's skills and interests - A wise policy, given the rate at which the dangerous business goes through subjects...


---------

<Gnome Science Institute> is a Roleplaying guild Alliance side taking gnomes of all classes and interests. The Roleplaying itself is contrary to the IC description not very centralised, but rather the Institute is a backdrop for character driven Roleplay, as well as a source for plots revolving around political maneuvering, covert resource handling, and classic mad science.

Recruitment is normally handled with a simple OOC whisper or IC letter, followed by a rather standard IC interview, but a full application on the forums makes my ego grow little, so either way works just fine. In Character application letters take the form of job applications due to the nature of the guild.

The Defias Wiki has an article on the guild here; [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I am, I must admit, very tempted to join... Are the Demonology, Magikology and Netherology still open? What are a basic description of all three? Isn't Demonology mostly frowned upon in the Alliance, also? Would I be able to RP in Magikology while only RPing fire magic (the reason being that my character wishes to keep his Warlock-ness secretive)? However, Demonology is so very tempting...

From the GAIRDAS Wiki entry:

Wiki wrote:Magikology

The art of spellcrafting is as ancient as time, having been practiced before the shaping of our world by those who came before it. The Magic Society delves into all magic, not just the arcane, natural or otherworldly, elemental or otherwise, seeking to understand the mystical ways in which it moves and functions. After the death of Malygos the Spellweaver, Magikology has been a very busy, and very dangerous field to work in.

Wiki wrote:Demonology

The Union of Demonic Study relies heavily on protective magics, recruiting Paladins, Priests and even Shamans to help ward themselves against the dark powers they study. In spite of the risks, the study of the Burning Legion, and other demonic forces, is extremely important and conducted relentlessly. This is one of the primary factors leading to the Institute gaining a reputation for dangerous experimentation, even though all experiments involving demonic powers are conducted in remote "Safe Zones", far from Alliance civilians.

Wiki wrote:Netherology

The dark cosmos that lies beyond the Great Dark, known as the Nether, is home to both demons and other spirits. The study of this environment specifically rather than its denziens falls to the Department of Netherology. Their work ranges from the inspection of residual magic to study of the stellar phenomena leeching across the Outland skies. Their work usually goes unappreciated, but those with a passion for the Field never let this bother them.

Etular wrote:Isn't Demonology mostly frowned upon in the Alliance, also?

As noted, the "Union of Demonic Study" isn't just a collection of Warlocks running rampant for the lulz, but an organized, dedicated research union who employ Warlocks to summon and control Demons, while also having specialized "Wardens" to keep both the Demons and the Warlocks in check. As well, all their major experiments are conducted in mentioned 'Safe Areas', which could be anywhere from the middle of the desert to a minor Horde settlement.

Because the Science Institute is supposed to be a major Alliance corporation it's quite unrealistic to believe that Alliance authorities would allow them to conduct these experiments without such precautions.

I've read the Wiki Article previously. Speaking of which, it mentions that neither of these fields has a teacher/Head Teacher. I've just thought, if that were the case, whether or not these courses were still available?

Assuming they are, should I sign up on the website?

They are still available, yes. It's preferable if you post an application on the forum, but for ease's sake a simple IC letter in-game works as well.

Due to seeing other people "bump"ing their own Guild threads, I feel almost obliged to do the same with this.

To make this a more useful post, however, and update on my former post - I have joined the guild and find it absolutely excellent. I advise anyone who is interested in joining such a guild to highly consider it - they will not regret it.

Good thing you did. I have a question. Does this guild also handle medical science? (Not to join but other RP reasons)

It doe have Biology and Alchemy courses, but I think Merandil/Blinkie might be able to answer better - as I'm somewhat unsure of what you mean by "other RP reasons". Please, elaborate.

Just exploring options. As an apprentice healer/medic I consider it normal that I would try to get in touch with institutes that could yield relevant research to my domain Smile
Might be handy to get in touch for specific solutions in case we need a hand with something ICly.

GAIRDAS
Sounds like something enraged Alliance warriors would yell thirty seconds before a usual Wintergrasp loss.

On another note, excellent idea, particularly how it represents the rapid "modernization" of Azeroth, and a shift from traditional theological ("Light"-based) to technological guilds. I predict guilds like this will emerge Horde-side too, come Cataclysm and its Goblins.

I was briefly in the guild, and whilst I did not feel it was for me. I'd heartily recommend it for very science-focused gnomes and gnomettes. And well any race!

Medical science would fall under both Biology and Alchemy as Etular said, as well as possibly Magikology if you're going the "Healer" route rather than the "Doctor" route.

That's flattering, but in all honesty I just wanted an IC excuse for crazy mad science >:3

Hello everybody, the Allied Science Institute is no more, having been revamped into the Gnome-only "Gnome Science Institute", now a federal agency supported by the Tinker's Court rather than a corporate entity.

I hope this doesn't disappoint anyone, since we only had Gnome guild members when we reformed anyway!

Do you guys work in collaboration with Aperture science like tests and is there a way to sell test subjects for profits in such test tracks?

Y'know, for science.

For the last time I won't be your test subject! Very Happy

Considering the topic is about 3-4 years old and i have never seen this, doubtful.

There was not -that- long ago a gnome guild but i think it didn't go well either, don't think there are any active gnome guilds right now.

We have far too many gnomes in Wild Tempest, please can someone take them off our hands? Our alpha gnome, Coppersocket gave birth to too many gnome litters and now we can't look after them all on the basis of morality. Sad Please take them all off our hands thanks.

I really wish I had the time and energy to run the GSI, but with so few gnome RPers around the guild's been inactive for about 3 years now, sorry to say. It's not much more than a guild bank tab full of Engi mats right now.
