I don't know if many of you know, but I'm VERY happy about the new RP hub being in Ebonheart. A few months ago, the Black Rose Cartel was mainly based on criminal RP. Namely Skooma smuggling, I ran the operation, however I found that it became the only type of RP available at the time. (Since we didn't have many officer event organisers other than EoS) I couldn't really handle finding jobs for everyone in the guild for what was meant to be a small operation, so, regrettably, I took a break. However, I'm back, and I wan't to relaunch the Black Rose smuggling operation in a slightly remodeled format. I want to reduce the direct involvement of The Cartel, bringing this secrecy and epicness of our presence, we will run the operation through the VERY well placed Argonian Npc's and the wonderful Goldscales :D.
I was thinking of also bringing Talion in for some more unarmed/ persuation based DESORP mini events for this new side of the guild. HOWEVER I want to make one thing clear, we need to do this while retaining the awesome military and combat RP that I love so much.
Thank you for listening, be sure to put your suggestions in this thread.
I really like Skooma Smuggling business, it opens many possibilities of RP, like we can use DESORP in every aspect of it. Smuggling, Persuasion/intimidation of some big mouthed brats, Selling skooma in high prices, bribe guards and etc. So Urvel you have my full support, I will do my best to assist you both IC/OOC.
As you already know, I support this 125%
Best part is that the smuggling RP fits perfectly with the Cartel concept, and is easily integrated without necessarily 'stealing' attention from the main plots.
It is great how this idea offers a wide variety of opportunities for character development & criminal activity. I bet this could grow fairly large if enough peeps invest in this.
I will do my best to bring Goldscales into this scenary, since both you & Xeirseus seems to have taken a liking to my Trading Trickster XD
Well, Urvel, as you may know, Hunts ran a drug empire while you were gone, and had to stop it because Xinz'r told him to seize all illegal activities because of his new rank. If i simply had misunderstood Xinz'r and he meant all non-cartel-related i'd gladly join in. With hunts' distribution-techniques and contacts in various undergrounds in combination with Urvel's better smuggeling techniques they'd probably make quite the funds for the cartel, and it wiykd out Hunts with a job to support him and Saunters without the external need of cartel missions.
Hunts' influence is the strongest in the Gold Coast, due to his Dark Brotherhood past there. Then would be riften, stormhold, Abah's landing, mournhold, Davon's watch, Dominion lands, Covenant lands and finally whrothgar (He's hated in wrothgar).
“If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected .”
