The Truth is Light and Air.
The perennial tides of continuance.
Hidden in artifice.
Go, seek, and ascertain.

A trailer made by one of our lovely guild members
The Melorian Circle, a sect who would describe themselves as researchers and truth seekers. While new, they and showing the beginnings of activity, it has been difficult to ascertain the objectives and mechanisms of the order as much is shrouded in tradition and ritual.
They seem to be practitioners of individualism on the surface with each fully-fledged member able to seek out whatever interests them. They oft’ send out representatives to offer counsel and work as emissaries but for what purpose is anyone’s guess.
There had been rumours in the past about The Circle. Some say that they practice arts experimental, forbidden and taboo but nothing has ever been proven and any evidence evanesced. They are mostly to be found on excursions where there is something unique or odd to be found; particularly of supernatural or magical nature. What is known is that without the backing of larger organisations such as the Kirin’Tor, they are seemingly eager to build up more mercantile and political connections.
What is this guild about IC?
It is a place for those that study and practice the magical or supernatural arts. To find those that will support them in their endeavours and encourage pushing them to the forefront.
Like a university, they research, educate, explore, and contribute back to society in their ways while still offering their members the freedom to progress by whatever means they deem most fitting. A younger order with seemingly great ambition, inspired by the need for greater powers to combat the ever-increasing dangers they face. As for alignment, that is very much up to the individual so true neutral would be alignment chart or some would say morally grey. Even with that said, all is never what it seems and for every light, there must be a shadow.
What is the theme? (The vibe)
It is kind of open-ended, while making this we have been inspired and influenced by other fictional organisations.
When working on this, I took particular influence from The Council of Tirisfal, The Black Harvest, The Unseen Academy (Discworld), The Lodge of Sorceresses (The Witcher), The Colleges of Magic (Warhammer Fantasy), The Inquisition ( Warhammer 40k), The Heliopic Brotherhood of Ra and the Oannes Society (Hellboy), The State Alchemists (Full Metal Alchemist).
If you like any of these, do check us out. We will be having similar themes, concepts, and styles while putting our unique amalgam spin on it that fit the universe. If you do not know or like any of these, that’s fine too because we want to create our own stories and won’t be relying on these for anything more than a feeling and encourage characters to be diverse and creative.
How about OOC?
Our primary goal with this guild is to produce emergent immersive stories. We want high-quality stories, interesting characters, and as much immersion as possible.
How will we do this?
- By encouraging actual stories involving and surrounding our characters (sometimes supported by a tabletop system to simulate aspects of reality). This will hopefully allow our members to feel progression risk and achievement in their roleplay while being flexible to not become a dice game.
- Yet, meaningful narratives are incredibly important to us and we want our players to be truly immersed in the stories and feel a part of a bigger picture. As such, we want more story-driven events and avoid just fillers where possible.
- Ideally, we want a mixture of character stories and planned events driving our guild story so we aim to have a few weekly events and hopefully that will give character prompts to action.
A key feature of this guild: we want all of our members to be creators, so everyone takes part in creating and running (smaller or larger) events rather than leaving it all to a select few.
What do we want from you?
Most importantly to enjoy yourself and want to participate. There is no point otherwise. The best way you can help us is by making a character you find interesting and engaging. Think about what defines them, their motivations, and if they have a purpose. The whys and whats. With this, I am sure we can create amazing experiences.
Are there restrictions to this guild?
While we encourage those who roleplay more magically inclined or influenced characters, all backgrounds have potential and that’s because everything can be researched, taught, and collaborated. After all, when you’re out on the field all skills can become the most valued.
