Welcome to the Unsung Adventures!

We aim to create public RP out in the world of Eorzea and have chosen Balmung as our main server.

While the Unsung started in Buscarron's Druthers in the Shroud and still see it as their main base of operation, they are now travelling far and wide across Eorzea.

Our focus this year will be on travel, adventure and cultural RP. If that sounds like a fun premise, or if you have your own initiative/idea for public overworld RP, please feel free to join our Discord. Our main goal is to create more public RP that makes the world feel more alive, so we welcome a wide variety of initiatives. Our events cater mainly to the EU timezones, but people from other timezones are more than welcome to join in.

The story

It started so simple. Buscarron's Druthers got its very own levemete so adventurers could come and make life a little easier in that small part of the Southern Shroud.
A Twelvemoon later and the loose associates dubbed 'The Unsung' are in the proverbial doghouse. The charge? Defying Gridanian orders and with the blessings of their levemete to boot.
For good reason, some might say. Either way, they have one more chance to make amends. By making a pilgrimage across Eorzea to visit the Guardian Stones, meeting and when needed helping the locals along the way.
There's more to the story, of course, there always is. Come find out and get some gil, adventure, and camaraderie along the way.

OOC Information

Hello and thank you for taking the time to look over the information of this RP initiative. We're always looking for more people to RP with, so here is some OOC info that might be handy to know if you'd like to join in.

Our goal: RP out in the world

In cities, towns, or out in the wilds - we want to RP in the beautiful world of Eorzea.

Everyone is welcome at our pop-up RP and events, though we do expect people to be considerate and respectful to other players.

We're always looking for people that love to initiate RP, either by hosting or joining events or simply by starting some pop-up RP.

Feel free to pop into our Discord or simply show up at our RP. We have a pop-up gathering at least every other Thursday in the EVEN weeks that's on the RP Calendar.

Unless otherwise stated our events are on Balmung, but we are open to joining RP created by other people on other Crystal servers.

Activity

TIME ZONE: Our focus is on Central Europe, 6 hours ahead of ET/EDT. People from other time zones are more than welcome to join us, but please do keep in mind that most of our events will take place during hours that are friendly for the EU.

ACTIVITY: Our scheduled pop-up RP is bi-weekly on Thursdays.
People are encouraged to plan their own events and pop-up RP throughout the week on top of that. Our Discord has channels like LFRP and opt-in event planning channels to make that easier.


PLATFORM: All group RP is done in-game but we have a channel on our Discord where people can share short tidbits about what their characters get up to. This way you can add to the feel of the place even when you're too busy to be in the game.

Code of Conduct

Our rules are simple, don't be a jerk, don't be a creep, respect the lore and each others preferences and RP styles. Please do not come here for just ERP and hookups, there are enough places that cater to that already.
With all that said, we RP in public places and it is not up to us to try and tell people how to conduct themselves if they're not part of this initiative. Please adopt a 'live and let live' attitude towards those with different styles of RP both in an outside of this group. As long as people aren't disruptive, they have just as much right to be there as anyone else.

Event etiquette

We've set up some guidelines around attending events, so we have a baseline on the kind of behavior we find most helpful. These count mostly for scripted events that make use of DMs, and not so much for freeform gatherings like the bi-weekly gathering at the Alehouse.

BE ON TIME
Please be on time when attending an event, and if you’ve signed up, please show up. Life happens, we know that, but try and let the DM/Host know if you can’t make it or are running late.

STYLE/THEME/LORE
While we adopt a live-and-let-live attitude to differences in styles and preferred themes, we ask that people keep the more outlandish aspects of their characters to a minimum during DMd events unless it has been cleared with the DM. If you are in doubt, ask.

NO EXTRAS
Do not bring extra characters with you unless you have cleared this with the DM. Handling a certain number of players can be hectic enough without the number doubling due to things like pets/extra companions played by one person. The same thing counts for bringing in other player friends from outside the Discord - please clear it with the DM so they don’t get overburdened.

NO IS A VALID ANSWER
Respect a DMs decision if they refuse to play around a certain character or theme. They are entitled to their preferences just like anyone else. Unless otherwise stated, all characters must be IC adults to join.

BE MINDFUL OF WARNINGS
Some DMs might post warnings for their events, like if there is a high risk of injury or if there’s certain themes that may not work well for everyone (like horror/violence). Keep these warnings in mind. If an event crosses into something that you find unpleasant or uncomfortable, please walk away from it. Take feedback to an admin/the DM after the event has ended when needed.

Discord rules

The following rules are the ones we maintain on our Discord, and we hope that people keep them in mind during RP in FFXIV as well.

RULE #1: RESPECT EACH OTHER & THE SERVER
Always be respectful of one another and the goal of this server, which is create RP together. Do not fall into the trap of naming & shaming, it will not be tolerated in any way. If someone isn't comfortable with an RP scene, let them leave it without hassle. If you have a quarrel with another person on the server and you can't work it out together, you may bring it to an Admin, but do note that we do NOT take sides in personal arguments.

RULE #2 RESPECT THE LORE
While we believe anyone should be able to RP what they like, there is a time and a place. Please be respectful to the lore preferences of other players and do not force 'out there' concepts on others without their consent. If you are in doubt, feel free to discuss it on Discord.
On the flip side of that, we RP in public and lore bending WILL happen. Do not harass people for being less strict, simply disengage from the RP. If you feel like you can't get away, feel free to poke an Admin, but we will only step in if we feel the lore is disregarded or an unconventional concept is being pushed too hard.

RULE #3 MATURITY
We expect a certain level of maturity in our Discord, and part of that is knowing what is and isn't appropriate in public channels. While darker themed events and RP interactions are allowed and encouraged, overly explicit or sexually focused events are not.
This Discord is also NOT for sharing media containing nudity, sexual acts, or excessive amounts of violence. Do not create events that are about hooking up for ERP, or roleplay sex workers.
This game is rated Teen, so there will be minors around. Keep that in mind and act accordingly in public RP. What you do in private is, of course, not our concern.
If in doubt, or if someone expresses discomfort with the level of maturity in the RP, take it to private channels.

RULE #4 ACTIVITY
We won't do activity checks, but we DO appreciate (pro) active people who understand that making events happen isn't always about personal gain, but for the community at large. Be kind to our initiators and hosts, share your feedback, and don't be shy about trying to initiate some RP yourself ^^

RULE #5 HAVE FUN!
Fun is mandatory, please comply ;)
