Xorison as well as the other myriad of structures in Whiteamber county provide a location for more meaningful gameplay.
In our daily jobs and other MMOs, after days and months and years of grinding we can come to thinking "what is the point"?
Purpose comes from change and community from stability.
The most satisfying gameplay experience comes from balancing these 2. Let's break from our world of reactive governments and small town thinkers and enjoy a virtual realm where we can practice our free will with proactive dreams and prove there can be a better way.
The Fools Journey
Xorison offers training services in Disguise, misinformation, dance, song, slight of hand, as well as forensic and interrigation.
Disguise -> performance and access
Dance + Song -> express ideas + connect socially
Misinformation -> protect truth + detect lies
Slight of hand -> magic tricks + investigation
Forensics + interrogation -> investigation
Xorison can provide training in exchange for goods and services, however training focuses on the following:
Prevent assasinations that would cause excess destability
Train performers in plays depicting tales of the lantern man to remind people to look beyond appearances for the truth.
Gain information on people and situations which could cause imbalance.
:: The training operations of Xorison are similar to Waerd guile schools but with a focus on life and protection rather than death and assasination. The style of this organisation is that of Jesters, Fools and Mummers as Drasean roots instill a desire to spread joy even in the darkest situations.::
As a neutral force and out of neccesity via its location, Xorison provides security to people travelling through swamps and deserts for major events.
Such as: sedecims, tournaments, pilgrimages and refugee movements.
There is no fee for Xorison escort services save for transportation expenses and access to events and information.
When there are no major events, Xorison will protect and investigate matters along major routes on borders between Hexcliff and north Vorhut, Hexcliff and south Blackwall as well as Hexcliff to West Genera.
Xorison runs a caravan of Quality wagons as well as coastal and river transport services.
::Primary inspiration for this network is the webway for Eldar Harlequins from Warhammer 40k. The Eldar webway is a network known by Harlequins better than all others, and because of this great understanding they can make decisive actions and create large change despite only being individuals.::
Forewarned and forearmed, the power of otherworldly beings is unknown.
Xorison through investigation on its network will connect information to the appropriate people to prevent catastrophic or supernatural world events.
Shapeshifters and possessive spirits are currently the primary entities suspected of creating malice.
Xorison will forge contracts relating to tackle global and supernatural events.
:: A good reference for this is the Nights Watch from Game of Thrones (a force neglected but open to all to protect the many but external to political military)
Inquisitors from Warhammer 40k are also somewhat of an influence as Xorison tackles threats through investigation through investigation and planning rather than battle and warfare.::
