    What if I told you that one day you could be the ruler of your own kingdom?

    How about something you can help grow and feel proud to

    belong to? A community that works like a family.


    All this can all happen in a beautiful castle town you can call home. Serenite has a unique charm to it.

    House Serenite of Grunvald is a town based RP light guild. You are not forced to take on

    any positions or roles, the roles below are purely optional. You simply have to

    respect role play. We do not require that members have Team Speak. We do have it

    available for out of character conversations and to help new players. If you have an

    interest in this house, you can message me here in the forums in order to setup a meeting to RP

    an invitation in game.


    Serenite will always have the Titan of Love at its center and heart. Why

    because it is with the love of our fellow Serenites that the town will succeed.

    Our pride of who we are and where we come from defines us. Every Serenite is

    first and foremost a soldier who would die for his family and kingdom.


    Our role play is similar to Game of Thrones. We do not care what other guilds

    call themselves. They are all houses to us. Order of Vengeance in our native

    tongue is House Vengeance. Pax Lair is House Pax Lair and so on and so forth.

    When we speak in role play we say house and not guild. In order to have a

    structure similar to what you see in GOT I have drafted up a few positions to be

    held within our House.


    Anything in this guild charter is subject to change. As the members of Serenite

    grow along with Serenite positions may not be needed or new ones may arise. Only

    the Duke, High Council and the High Priest can edit this document.


    Positions:


    Duke- This person must be a highborn (see below). He is the king of his realm

    and he only bows to the king of all the realms which is Lord British. The Duke

    at one point will choose a highborn to ascend to the throne. This person will

    own Serenite one day and lead House Serenite. Right now that is not even a

    thought for us, but I know in the future I will want to pass on the Scepter and

    Crown of Serenite to its new ruler. As it is in Game of Thrones, no one rules

    for ever. This person will have to exude a pride and love for Serenite equal to the Dukes.



    Vassals/Minor House- Anyone who possess title and land will join House Serenite

    as a vassal. They will be known as their own House and operate as one. The

    leader will be joined as an officer to the guild so they can invite people into

    their house. They are responsible for recruiting for their own town and can have

    other officers/positions under them. Minor Houses will have a similar guild

    structure to House Serenite. Minor houses can one day become a major house by

    forming their own house/guild.


    High Priest - The High Priest is the spirit of Serenite, he holds the only

    position above the High Council. He is revered by Serenites residents. He can

    command anyone in the kingdom including the High Council in the absence of the

    Duke. If and when the High Priest needs to mobilize the army he will have to convene

    with the High Council before doing so.

    The High Priest can also reside on Serenite Hill if he chooses to do so and is

    not obligated to do so. The High priest enjoys a lot of liberties and command

    over Serenite.

    Priests of Serenite(Healers) Priests perform the weekly Service under the

    High Priest supervision. They also train the acolytes. The priests however are

    only in control of their acolytes.

    Acolytes - Acolytes do to being under the High Priest are respected individuals

    in the realm who devote themselves to selfless acts of Love. They also aid the

    priest in their weekly service.


    The High Council- will be for all the officers of the house. They will assist

    the Duke in decisions. The council will be leaders of the guild and can execute

    administrative orders and round up our armies if our captain of the guard is not

    present. You can be a member of the High council and take another position.


    Town Mayor - This person will aid in getting everyone settled in and

    move stuff around the town and decorate. The Mayor will also settle disputes

    among residents and create laws that the towns members must adhere to in order

    to have harmony in Serenite. The laws are simply in place to give the town a

    certain look. The farm lands are in their areas and the housing in another.


    Master of Coin - There must be some sort of order with the merchants within

    our kingdom. Inside this mini guild the merchant guild master will make sure

    there is order and assign positions, gatherers, blacksmiths, weapon smiths and

    so on and so forth.


    House Ambassador- In this position the Ambassador will help foster relations with

    other houses.


    General of the Armies of Grunvald- Serenite is rich in history

    and lore. The towns of Grunvald were taken only when the Dukes of Vengeance,

    Malus and Serenite decided to unite their armies. Once the armies were

    United, they were able to overcome our enemies.

    These houses may have their differences, however when faced with a common enemy they have

    united in the past and hope to do the same in the future. The General in times

    of trouble will command the armies of all the houses of Grunvald.


    Lord Commander of the Guard- This person will be responsible for rounding of

    the knights to defend Serenite VS our enemies and PVE town raids

    He/She will also be in charge of training the knights. The Commander has to be a

    master of combat. There will be duels for these positions.

    Captains- Captains are higher ranked knights that can now

    assist in training new recruits and leading organized groups within the army.

    Knights- A Knight s primary focus is on homing their combat skills. It is their

    duty to heed to the call to action by their Lord Commander and Captains.

    Archers- Are same as knights only specializing in archery skills.

    Squires - Squires that have passed the tests put forth by the Commander

    graduate to knights or archers depending on what skills they are trained on.



    Kings Guard- the Kings Guard is a culmination of both the player and the town.

    He will wear the best armor and weapons in the entire House. The KG is not a

    position gained by role play, it is gained by prowess in combat. To become the

    next Champion you must beat the current one by wining 2 out of 3 duels.

    Serenite's honor will be his blade. There will be times where we want to avoid

    large scale war and or settle disputes and or guard one of our officers or

    highborn when we decide to RP outside our town.

    The Kings Guard once chosen will undergo a ritual that has been handed down

    from Arch Mage to Arch Mage(see below) for many generations.

    This ritual confers upon the Champion powers of un death. Like Avatars they are

    immortal only their power comes from death itself. The KG mind undergoes severe

    changes and will lose touch with any and all humanity. Because of these powers

    of un death their thirst for blood is like no mortal can ever fathom.

    Serenite depends on his ability to never lose a fight. If he loses we lose. Our

    champion is our honor.


    Shadowblade- The assassin trainers. The Shadow blade counts on his ability to

    live in the shadows and assimilate. He is both spy and assassin. Their blade always

    finds its mark in the shadows. There can be more than one Shadowblade.

    Every kingdom needs the ability to perform certain actions discreetly.

    The Shadowblade has also excelled in the art of assimilation and espionage. When

    those talents are needed he can find his way into any group or groups to attain

    information for their House.


    Rogues- Trainees under the shadow blade. Once they pass certain test put forth

    by the shadow blades the assassins can graduate to Shadowblades. This test will

    usually be an assignment where the assasin must prove his skills and can end in

    capture or death.


    Arch Magus of Serenite- Due to Serenites affinity with Obsidian stones, the

    mages of Serenite are renown throughout the realm. The sorcerers of Serenite

    descend from the Obsidian times. This person will be good at making mage builds

    and train the new mages. He will be in charge of the mages when they head out to

    combat with the knights. He is also responsible for passing down the secret to

    transform the Kings Guard into un death. This process is known as “The walk of

    death”.

    Arch Magus Apprentice - Arch Magus will choose the most worthy of the magus to

    learn how to perform “The walk of death”. He also operates as a Magus

    Magus- These mages have undergone the Rite of Passage . This is a test put

    forth by the Arch Magus. They are combat ready and can join the knights in

    combat. They can also lead groups of Apprentices into combat.

    Apprentice Magus - These are the mages in training until they take the “Rite of

    Passage” .


    Recruiter- Once we get above 30 members there will be only one recruiter.


    Highborn- Highborn are heirs to the throne. In this position a lot can happen,

    they can also take on any of the other RP positions like the High Council. Their

    character must take the surname Serenite. They must also have the look of a HB.

    Because of the desert sun and close vicinity to Obsidian shards throughout the

    generations, Serenite's highborn have taken on a unique look. They have pale

    skin purple eyes or blue eyes, and their hair is also blonde. Those that are

    born with purple eyes are sorcerers and magic comes to them naturally. Lore

    experts say that the only living blood line that can be traced back to Obsidian

    times are the Serenite highborn. It is common lore in Serenite that because they

    have lived close to the Obsidian shards of Grunvald it has conferred upon them

    the ability to learn magic at an accelerated pace.

    Highborn are to be treated like royalty in RP situations. Highborn live in

    Serenite hill next to the Dukes keep. They must have a Lord pledge or higher.

    He/she must be able to afford a town sized home or better. All pledges can

    aspire to be HB. They can start with the lowest pledge and work their way up.

    Upon my relinquishing of the throne to another highborn, he/she will also live in

    Serenite keep.

    There will only be 5 highborn at any given time. Like we see in Game of Thrones,

    highborn usually kill each other. One way to be rid of another highborn would be

    to trap them in a lie that would be seen as treason against the crown. They will

    be executed publicly and banished from Serenite for ever. So careful being a

    high born, there is a lot at stake and you will be competing with other HB for

    the Dukes favor. The truest and most virtuous way to gain the Dukes favor would

    be to show him that your love for Serenite is greater or equal to the Duke

    himself. Only through your actions and love for Serenite will a highborn be heir

    to the throne.



    Elf Lord- The elf Lord oversees the elven nation within Serenites walls. These

    lands are in the forest area of Serenite. The elves were created by the Obsidian

    sorcerers long ago and some earlier refugees settled in Serenite. Elves helped House Serenite secure

    these lands and since then have shared Serenite in complete harmony. Any elf by

    decree of the Duke is to be treated with the upmost respect and admiration for

    their ancestors sacrifice for Serenite. The elves of Serenite also have a unique

    similar to highborn look which is pale skin and lavender eyes with blonde or

    brown hair.


    Citizen of Serenite - This is the most important role of all. A citizen can

    hold an official position with House Serenite or they can simply go about their

    business. We welcome them all - explorers, miners, merchants, elves, orcs,

    crafters and pirates. These people are the foundation of our town and we live

    and work together every day. All citizens can choose to be members of House

    Serenite. Or they can be members of another House or even be unbound to a house.

    Not at all no that does not represent our RP. My members were being harassed on a non RP level so that devolved from RP long ago. I am not going to RP with someone attacking my guild on a non RP level.

    Serenite is the best guild I have been part of in years. Friendly players with some of the funniest conversations I've had in a good long time. Great team of people to help learn more and more about the game.

    Yay!

    Serenite is clearly far away from home but maybe it's time this hunter takes a trip outside South Paladis! I'll be visiting your town for sure!

    This sounds very promising. I have a small group that are joining the game and are all heavy RP focused. I'm excited to hear that there may be groups out there to join. I may try and reach out to someone in team speak otherwise if anyone can PM me to help get us moving in the right direction that would be helpful too. Looking forward to role playing!
