IG RP Opportunities

So you are now a proud member of the Emperor's own. Or perhaps you are curious about joining? Sure you've seen IG here and there. Sometimes patrolling, sometimes on quest with you. You've read the write up you see that there are various positions, but what does it all mean in the end? After all the main thing to do here on Belariath is to RP, and well you wanna get those hours in as well for your work logs.

Patrols:
The most basic of things to to when on duty is to do a patrol. As the IG are the ones that protect the interest of our Emperor that can include patrolling the streets of any of the towns (valencia, Nanthalion, Sha`Shir and Har`Amrun), patrolling the roads between the towns, guarding the various portals that are set up for quick travel, patrolling inside the inn, guarding Unigo/Umbara assets, and patrolling the shops.

Joint patrols
The IG have joined up with the Nobles of the Empire as far as jurisdictions are concerned and as such, a joint effort to work together has been established. What this means is that an IG and a member of a Noble house can work together on patrols or other RP opportunities. So long as those involved that outside of Noble lands the IG has jurisdiction, things should go fine. This includes working with the Temple guards that are normally in charge of helping out with the temples.

Spar
What better way to test your mettle than to do so against fellow IG members, or even perhaps against some of the Noble guards, or even the arena gladiators. So long as it is done either at the IG HQ or at the Arena a member of the IG can ask for a spar and have that count towards their daily work log. Training is very important. An IG should always train themselves to be better than they were yesterday.

Obstacle Course
Oh you'd best believe the IG have an obstacle course! Sparring is fine and all, but there are other ways for one to better their body and mind and that is with obstacle course events. Strength, agility, intelligence, resistance. This can either be free formed or one could roll dice specific to the type of obstacle being performed. For instance if you are competing with another member of the IG, you could both roll a !rstat str to see who climbs to the top of a rope first. Be creative with it but please do not go overboard with it.

Jhore/horse Training
If you are of a mind to be one of our Jhore riders you can also RP out training/taming the Jhore. There is a Jhore pen at HQ and if you are doing the training of Jhore then the RP should be here. There can be an obstacle course available for the horses and Jhore.

Illusion Room Training
The ultimate level of training. This requires a member of Unigo/Umbara trained in the ability to use the illusion rooms in order to conjur up various levels of enemies or obstacles in order to test the might of a squad. Please note that this is a prefered thing to do in groups (at least 2 or more IG) to help test team work. See the illusion rooms page for more info: http://belariath.com/locations/unigo/index.html#IllusionRooms

Quest/events
Both quest and events that involve protecting the empire are good RP opportunities to both join in on some fun as well as get in a work log for the IG. Go forth and represent the Emperor! Just be sure that it's a quest or event that is actually dealing with protecting Imperial assets. Don't go helping out that crazy old lady with getting her pet saber tiger back and expect that to count as an IG issue (in other words if you are on such a quest do not put on your IG tag and do not make a worklog for it). If one is unsure ask either The commander of the IG, the secretary of the IG, or an OP.

Naval RP
While this can count as being a part of the patrol section, it is noteworthy enough to have it's own section. Those who have joined the IG can actually be recruited to be a part of the Imperial Navy, either for long term, short term, or just various excercises. This means that a patrol can be done whilst on a boat traveling between the various seas owned by the empire. The noble in charge of Thallis, and his people are good liasion points for RP involving Naval RP. Remember that there is a Massive Portal system that's used to transport Imperial ships to and from the Sha'shir/Har'amrun areas that could also be a part of a guard patrol.

On the fly events
These require op permission to use NPC's but if you want to spruce up your patrols you can add in some NPC baddies to the mix and get around to doing something other than just watching. Remember as these are events and not quest, keep it simple. Don't try to go all out with it and come up with crazy mechanics and the like. Just simple RP to make the patrol a bit more of something to do.

Woah! Really? An Imperial Guard can put on their work tag in any channel and claim they are patrolling? Even while making out with someone? I can see why it probably wouldn't be allowed if the making out was done in a private area (private bath, private booth, inn room, etc.). But, if the act was done out in public (public bath, inn room, forest, Arena, etc.), then one could claim patrolling inside the inn (or wherever) or guarding Unigo/Umbara assets while having sex and still get paid?

You're expected to RP in the respective channel the actions you do while patrolling. As for sex while on duty, just like everywhere else where slacking on the job is concerned, it could get you in trouble with your boss if they find out. Or maybe they won't care.

Actually, I'm not an IG, but I do serve a Noble House. When it comes to having a lecherous lord, it can lead to one thing or another, but the whole patrolling point is that you are keeping an eye out for trouble. When Matwyn was having fun with me, Miranda decided to do a little stage play about "Old Man Stormbringer" and Lord Matwyn put an immediate stop to it. So, just having fun with someone doesn't detract from doing your duty. Hope I'm making sense. :lol:

Having sex isn't patrolling. So no.
