Old Ironsides

As summer creeps to a close, there are some who have become restless for adventure. With the spirit of Krokar in mind, an expedition south of 'Souls has been proposed in order to establish a trading post in a promising area off the Atlantic coast. Livestock, materials, and goods in tow, Tybalt will lead a crew of explorers to Searsport, Maine where they will come upon a shipwrecked vessel that they name Old Ironsides. It is here that our pilgrims will establish the Old Ironsides Depot, creating a foundation for honest trade, fair prices, and a favorable future.

The Crew

Whether itching for a change, hoping for a new beginning, or simply providing their expertise, these brave Krokarans have offered themselves for the virgin mission to Old Ironsides:

Promote-a-pNPC Mini-contest

Did you know that our pNPCs can climb the ranks just the same as played characters? So whether you'd like to help Ilse or Elias out of Flotsam, teach Gavin or Taseko a new skill, or earn a new co-rank yourself using another of Krokar's many beloved pNPCs, the month of September is prime time for promotions! Throughout September, we're requiring only one qualifying co-rank thread for promotions as long as a pNPC is involved. You may also accrue co-ranks but your character will need to occupy their promoted rank for one month before moving up to their next rank. So grab a thread partner, choose a thread prompt, and show Krokar what you've got!

Rules
  • Qualifying threads must be started in September.
  • All threads must be interactive. No ROs will be accepted.
  • A minimum of one pNPC must be involved in each thread.
  • Threads do not need to be archived but must meet completion requirements.
  • Members may accrue a maximum of four (4) co-ranks but must occupy their promoted rank for one month before being promoted to the next.
  • Players may submit the same thread as their thread partners.
  • Since co-ranks are required for promotions, you must submit one thread per co-rank.
  • Completed threads must be submitted by October 15th.

We wanted to make a separate note to clarify that one of our well-established pNPCs, Hazel, will be inaccessible for use in this mini-contest as she will be accompanying our Old Ironsides pioneers. :)
