    Default VIGIL I: We don't have a cool title yet...

    +

    Whereas GLoG concerns itself with redeeming evil-doers (and healing the sick and sheltering refugees etc.) and AMEN is evildoers, VIGIL takes a more neutral approach. VIGIL doesn’t concern itself with good or evil, but with kicking people who need to be kicked. It is dedicated to preventing threats to the Nexus, both massive-scale and small-scale, from muggers and exploding taverns to apocalypsoi and demonic invasions. Of course, given that evil-doers tend to be the ones who cause those things, VIGIL tends to be pitted against the forces of evil more often than not, but it doesn’t care that they’re evil, just that they’re causing trouble. Calling it a 'Good' organization is likely to draw the ire of some of the more morally relative members around. Maybe. Some members do call it a Good organization. This is because it is formed from the merging of the two organizations, WATCHTOWER and HALO. Both were similar in that they fought off those who need to be fought.

    VIGIL is an organization that exists to stop some bad things from happening. No one is entirely sure which ones, or why.

    To join, you might want to look at this membership form. However, as this is still a new organization, the membership process is not completely hashed out.
    MEMBERSHIP
    Spoiler
    Show

    Prospective Members should fill out the below form and submit it to any member.
    Spoiler
    Show

    Name:
    Age:
    Sex:
    Species:
    Profession:
    Reason for joining VIGIL:
    Special skills/items you believe will aid/have decided to contribute to VIGIL:
    Other Information:


    Additionally, prospective members probably should prove their worth to the organization. The proof is open-ended, and can be decided by any member, with proofs ranging from a simple interview or test of skill, duels in the arena, even to accompanying a member on a mission. ((OoC note: Players of prospective members are encouraged to discuss the terms of their test in advance with the player of their 'interviewing' member, in order to find a test suitable to both players. Not everyone wants to run an entire adventure for a new member, but on the other hand, some people might find a simple interview or test too simple for their tastes.))

    Accepted and proven members gain access to more secure and important rooms. Higher level members have higher clearance. And so on. The organization is, as with most things in the Nexus, prone to change according to the desires of the members. If you have any questions, ask someone either in the OoC thread or in the IRC.

    VIGIL is also accepting applications for cleaning, nursing, secretarial, maintenance, security, or other miscellaneous duties, without the full responsibilities of membership. Prospective staff members should apply to, and be interviewed by a senior member for suitability. VIGIL staff members will receive quarters if requested, and will be allowed full run of the bases except for where they logically wouldn't.


    The Bases
    Spoiler
    Show

    VIGIL has at least three different bases. Although a single member may generally prefer one or another base, there are plenty of opportunities for VIGIL members to serve in the other bases. In fact, this is encouraged.

    Mountain Base
    VIGIL's mountain base (formerly WATCHTOWER's base) is a limestone fortress located halfway up a cliff, overlooking a lake high up in the mountains. Built by mages, the fortress is dominated by a large central tower supporting a magical observatory that can be used to spy on locations across the world. Another notable feature of the tower is the airship gantry built into adjacent cliffside, which is home to a pair of airships and a small fleet of ground vehicles.

    The mountain base is full of magical secrets from an era long past, including a library full of arcane knowledge, labs, holding pens once home to twisted experiments, ghostly servants, and a dense network of catacombs beneath the tower which may still be home to a legion of eldritch nightmares.

    Suggested Location Tags: Front Gates, Courtyard, Training Grounds, Hospital Tower, Member Quarters, Labs, Mage's Library, Observatory, Airship Gantry, Catacombs and others.


    Undersea Base
    The undersea base was HALO's base. It has teleporters that go to specific sites in Inside, it has a submarine ferry system that brings people from the surface down, it has an infirmary and many other things - some long-forgotten. Scattered throughout the base are various rooms, hallways, bedrooms, recreation rooms, and so on. There is a semi-mystical feeling here, full of long-lost secrets.


    Sky Base
    Most people don't know this exists or even what it contains. Most people probably didn't even know this existed. It was a forgotten part of HALO, and is being re-used now that the bases are combined.




    BASE NPCS

    Tower Servants (Player: Anyone)
    Spoiler
    Show
    Recently discovered by KR, these magical servants were created by the original inhabitants of VIGIL, but only recently re-awakened. They appear as ordinary humans of various appearances, some male and some female, and all of them different looking, though they share the same vaguely attractive, but neutral features. All of them wear form-fitting knee length grey coats, buttoned all the way up the front and embroidered with a single eye on the left breast, in addition to dark trousers and shoes. Though solid seeming, and able to interact with physical objects, closer inspection will reveal that their physical 'substance' is made up of thousands of tiny magic sigils, constantly shifting and moving past each other to create an illusion of solid presence.

    The Tower Servants, though unable to speak, write or communicate beyond simple body language, have a limited intelligence and ability to learn, and a natural compulsion to clean, garden, arrange, and just generally make themselves useful at all times. They can also understand speech or written instructions and can thus be commanded to perform specific tasks or assist specific individuals, with tasks as complex as leading them to specific areas of the tower, doing laundry, putting items away in specific places, or even cooking basic meals.

    They are unable to participate in combat of any kind, and will generally ignore intruders of any kind, though they cannot take orders from those they do not recognize as inhabitants of the tower. If a servant is 'damaged', either by physical force such as a sword thrust or by a spell, the servant will dissipate, and reappear in 24 hours, seemingly unharmed.

    Though mute and meant to be perfectly servile and unassuming, some of them may seem to manifest subtle personality traits. Whether this is a genuine phenomenon or just wishful thinking and a desire to project human traits onto inhuman (but human-like) constructs is uncertain.


    A Perfectly Ordinary Cat (Player: Kris on a Stick)
    Spoiler
    Show
    This is a perfectly ordinary cat. A white cat. With a black collar made of some mysterious, stone-like material that's immune to scratching or chipping of any sort. A close look at the collar will reveal faintly etched runes in the stone, which seem to glow slightly in the presence of magic, and brightly in the presence of powerful magic. Despite being perfectly ordinary, the cat has a few powers. First of all, it can understand language, and speak any language that exists, in the realms of mortals or gods, with a voice that would sound perfectly androgynous to all those who hear it. Second of all, it seemed to have the ability to bypass any and all barriers, physical or magical, slipping through stone doors or forcefields of any sort as if they were air. This ability would only seem to work within the confines of the fortress, however, though this is hard to prove since the cat does not seem to be able to leave the fortress by any means.

    The cat is highly bitter and sardonic, and will likely taunt any hapless members or visitors it comes across, though it will help them grudgingly if asked, and in fact seems to appear specifically when help is most needed.

    The cat seems to be able to control the Seen Servants mentally, and exhibits some degree of control over the tower's magical functions, turning lights on and off or activating other forms of magic at a whim.


    There are surely other NPCs in the other bases; I either don't know them or don't have the time to put them in yet.




    Membership/Leadership Lists
    * Although the members are relatively known by the players in the organizations, they are either too complicated, out-of-date, hashtagged, in fluctuation, or so on to be put in right now. If you have a dying urge to see the membership lists, go back and look at the HALO and WATCHTOWER threads. What's important right now is to get the thread up, not to have a flawless first post.

    Leaders: These four leaders are in charge of the general direction of the group. Their permission is not needed for every individual action a member makes, but things that affect the organization as a whole or that need a mobilization of the entire VIGIL should go through them.

    Spoiler: Out of Character Notes
    Show

    1. Conflict is great! It's the heart of any story, and there isn't much to roleplay without it. However, no randomly destroying the place, or doing something to it that'll produce a similar effect (for example, no placing a massive time freeze on the entire area forever). You're allowed to damage it, but destroying it just takes the fun out of it for all the other players. If you do want to run a plot in which a base or the whole organization gets destroyed, though, feel free to run your idea through OoC to see if other people like it and are willing to roleplay it out!
    2. No godmoding/godmodding. It's not permitted in other ACRONYMs, and it isn't in VIGIL. The occasional mishap's OK, repeated offense isn't.
    3. Please try and keep posts longer than one or two lines of speech. Description is appreciated. One-or-two-liners that don't do much are OK once in a while - but not regularly.
    4. If you want random smashy hahaN00BlulzFun, here's not the place. Anything spammy, random, or just plain annoying, can go! Of course, if your silliness is in moderation and well-roleplayed, and considerate of other players, then welcome in.
    5. Romance/Fanservice/Secks/WOOHOO!/Whateveryawannacallit is acceptable here, but remember to curtain once it goes past the snuggling stage, and be aware that there may be IC repercussions for dropping the curtain whenever you're online, as this is a thread with a mission. And said mission does not involve ******* like rabbits.

    Wenomir arrives through the permanent portal. He's been here before, of course, but now that Watchtower and HALO are both VIGIL, he feels like he needs to be come more familiar with the place.

    [Mountain Base]

    Thariza, on the other hand, arrives in the tower. She for her part has never been in Watchtower's former headquarters, having spent her time in the underwater base, the field or the Dancing Fox Inn.

    Carrie starts to salute, but then realize that she technically outranks Weno and isn't sure if she should salute, but figures that she can salute if she wants and...
    Suffice to say, her returned salute is hesitant and awkward. Oh, um, yeah, guess I am... Inspirational leaderlike confidence! So... like it here?

    Thariza may run into a human, dressed in a black military uniform and slinging a sniper rifle across his back. She'll probably notice the scarred flesh running across his left cheek.

    "I suppose so," Wenomir says. "I've been here on business once or twice before. Usually to share some information. I don't really know people from here all that well, though, apart from Tobias and his sister. I knew Sam Goswell back when we were both in GLoG."

    "I was in HALO, yes," the Charr says. "I've never been here, so I figured I'd drop by and take a look at the place. Name is Thariza Brighthorn."

    "Gud day everyone!!!" Said one of the heads of a large two headed ogre, as he walks towards Carrie and Wenomir. "Grrritzz za name, punchins mah game!" "Where does I signs up!"

    "Quiet you donkey", said the other head as it socked Grrritzz in the mouth. "How rude of you." "Murris on duty captain", said Murris as he began to salute, with Grrritzz following suit soon afterwards

    Carrie nods. Oh yeah, I, uh... I know Sammie pretty well. She realizes that calling the woman 'Sammie' probably gave away just how well she knows the super-hot badass redhead.

    Wenomir doesn't really pick up on that. As far as he knows, it's just a pet name between friends. Then, however, an ogre shows up.

    "You've come to the right place. This is one of the three bases of VIGIL." He looks back at Carrie. "Of course, our former two groups had different recruitment processes."

    [Mountain Base]

    "Oh? A fellow soldier, then," Thariza says. "I was in the Iron Legion of the Charr before winding up here. What's your speciality?"

    "My unit was for special ops that a normal squad couldn't handle, ops that required precision and stealth," Boris says. Kind of like a smaller, more specialized Ash Legion, actually. "Myself, I'm a sniper. I get called in to hit targets from a kilometer away."

    There is a loud knock at the entrance to the Mountain Base of VIGIL - perhaps loud enough that the two soldiers would notice.

    "My job was, and still is, I guess, to protect snipers, cannons and gunners while in the field," Thariza begins to explain when she hears knocking. "Looks like somebody is trying to get in. Let's see who that is." She heads over to do just that.

    Behind the door is a rather short man, who bears a cheeky grin on his face. He wears a drab green knit cap, matching his long, drab green deel. He clicks his heavy, brown boots together, meeting Boris with a salute. "Hello! This is VIGIL, yes? Stalwart defenders of justice?" At this point, Boris might notice Winchester model 1895 that lies behind the man. "I seek entrance into this organization." The smile remains on his face as he waits for a response.

    Thariza will let Boris open the door, instead standing a bit behind him and to the side. She's a rather large woman who resembles a bipedal sabre-toothed cat.

    Wenomir tilts his head, confused. He's not sure why Carrie is nervous.

    Outside Mountain Base
    Another person is here!
    Charlotte, a 15 year old teen with olive skin, a narrowing face with tranquil green eyes, and long brown hair tied in a ponytail by a red ribbon, stands here, her tallish, somewhat attractive (She's 15, okay?) form clad in a black, red trimmed skirt, black shirt under a red hooded cloak, and black, red trimmed snowboots. Her hands hold a long silver spear, positioned behind her head and resting on her shoulders.
    She knocks on the door.

    I doubt Boris would recognize an American rifle from almost a century before his birth. And he doesn't, he just knows it's an old rifle. He rolls his eyes a bit at "Stalwart Defenders of Justice," but at least he doesn't look hostile. "Sure, come on in. What's your name?"

    The man is taken aback by the cat-like humanoid, but his grin only grows when Boris speaks. "I know that accent - you're Russian, yes? Greetings, товарищ! I come to you as a fellow militant and revolutionary!" When he says 'comrade' in Russian, his accent becomes incredibly apparent - this is a man from Mongolia. "Did I say it properly? I can read your language, but alas, cannot yet speak it. Perhaps as the relations between our two countries improve, I will have a chance to better study it." He fixes the saber that rests at his belt. "Ah, yes, I am Karljaav. It's truly a pleasure to meet you - a Russian - in such a strange land as this." He extends his hand to Boris. "Is this cat-creature a companion of yours?"

    "The cat-creature's name is Thariza, Thariza Ebonhorn," the Charr says, a little tersely. But she is used to people being taken aback by her appearance. Even in the melting pot that is the Nexus, Charr are somewhat original-looking.

    There's a phone call to the new Org. I'm not entirely sure if they have a special emergency hotline or just a phone number, but there is surely one of those things for perceptive citizens to report threats and the like.
