Welcome to the guild! Thank you for becoming a part of our oddball family.
It can be daunting to hop into a roleplay (RP) guild, especially if you're new to RP. There are stories to catch up on, character relationships and dynamics to discover, and in general learning to become a better RPer. This thread is here to connect you to all the things you need to know in general about RP and about Blue Skooma.
Anything with a * next to it is necessary information and are rules we expect you to know and understand. Anything else is supplementary to help you as you begin your journey with us. Please feel free to contact an officer, senior officer, or myself with any questions (GM: @Vulano, Sr. Officers: @Gnarlyarchfiend, @WildCat800, @Furryf0rm3r)

From bartenders to guards to mercenaries, if you're looking for the perfect niche for your character, here's where you can start! Find all of the needed contacts for getting involved in our factions in this thread.
Weekly story events every Monday and Friday @ 10pm EST meeting in the tavern.
Officer Meeting in Discord (general members welcome to attend) every Tuesday @ 9pm EST
Additionally, there is typically casual, unscheduled RP happening around the tavern in Cormount at most hours of the day/night. Member-hosted faction events are also subject to occur outside of normal event hours; you may check the calendar on the forum for a reference, to see what events are being hosted. As a guild, we seem to be most active with RP between the hours of 7pm EST and 2am EST, though of course these are loose hours. If ever you want to RP but don't see any RP happening, don't hesitate to give a little shout out in the guild chat (or ask an officer to, if you're nervous), and most of the time there will be a handful of people willing to RP with you.
