The Communion is a Neutral, Tamriel-Wide Community Role Play Guild that organizes individuals to create an immersive, realistic, lore-appropriate underground world in the Elder-Scrolls Online role play community. The Communion, an elite criminal syndicate which is thought to be just a 'bed-time story' or 'myth' invites organizations into the fold of whom are worthy and align with The Communion's larger purpose - true freedom by eliminating slavery, ending corruption in the highest places, and dispelling the real evils of Tamriel. Although each independent and guild within our hub has it's own aesthetic and theme, the overall aesthetic of The Communion bridges both Robin Hood and "the mob".

Those who view themselves as a criminal with purpose, part of the underground, or in need of protection from the truly corrupt are all invited to join. This means that anyone from the highest of mob bosses, lowliest of criminals, and even innocents who are battered and beated by those who are truly evil can join for the benefits, protection, job opportunities, and connections.

With a hand that reaches far and wide, this criminal syndicate is made up of both guilds and independents all across Tamriel. The complete list of guilds you can find below, with our independents also listed on our Member Page of our website.

In the past few generations, The Communion's coordinator is none other than House Rousseau at-Rabiah - which is held to be the upmost secret. House Rousseau at-Rabiah has a very public, legal presence in far-reaching political realms that must be maintained to uphold the goals of The Communion. Although House Rousseau at-Rabiah serves as the overall coordinator and upholder of the Code, the overall path of The Communion is guided by a 'round table', which is made up of elected officials approved by the overall coordinator. These individual serve as 'bosses' in their area, assisting to coordinate The Communion and receiving payment for doing so.

The Marquess Rhea Rousseau at-Rabiah is known as 'Rose' in the underworld, with her true identity unknown. To this day, no one has uncovered the true identity of 'Rose', save for those she trusts that joins her organization. It is said, that those who try to reveal her identity... are never heard of again. Out-of-character, House Rousseau at-Rabiah works to actively coordinate all guilds and individuals involved, help with guild organization and promotion, and holds community plot-lines.

House Rousseau provides services akin to an 'insurance policy' to all those that join. Annual dues are paid (IC only) to House Rousseau, purely to keep these services provided that would realistically cost coin. This coin is earned back two or threefold through the jobs offered by The Communion, so the annual dues serve as an acknowledgement of loyalty and continued belief in the groups' goals. At no time does House Rousseau have any IC or OOC control over any group - this is a service provided only. Annual dues end up costing around 250 gold per individual, per year. This is, again, only an IC payment. No OOC coin is passed. The payment remains the same with no negotiations, to uphold their promise that all groups and individuals will be treated neutrally by House Rousseau. These large list of benefits can be found in the spoiler just below, and are all carried out in-character:

Those who join are protected under the Code of Honor which upholds the concept 'honor amongst thieves'. As House Rousseau also will uphold the Code, they will never act in any other situation except in violations of this Code without request. Meaning, your group will also be its own separate entity, outside of House Rousseau influence, save for violations of the Code. For example, part of this Code is that no violence can occur on Communion neutral territory (like the House Rousseau Inn or safe houses), but if an assassination occurs on those grounds, House Rousseau would uphold the Code.

(Please do keep in mind that only Communion members can enter this event as it is meant to be a social event for our hub, so if you are wanting to participate - check out our website and join!)


C3732209-1484701940616644large.jpg


Tʜᴇ Eᴠᴇɴᴛ

"Hit Me With Your Best Shot", hosted by House Rousseau, will be one of the first of many social events for The Communion! This time, we challenge you to an in-character drinking competition! "Hit Me" will seek to find the drinking boss who can “hold their own”! All races are invited to attend or participate, although no magical ability can be used for events unless specified.

The "Hit Me" competition is about more than just holding your alcohol! With each drink, the participants are expected to compose a verse boasting their own reputation while challenging their opponents. As the drinking progresses, the intensity of the ridicule, boasts, and taunts increase as the drinkers become less and less inhibited. The goal is to maintain verbal skill throughout the competition without showing the effects of alcohol. Modeled after an actual Old Norse drinking game that will be adapted to Elder Scrolls, the contest will challenge brains against belly!

All should be aware that the boasts and 'burns' should be kept to in-character only and should only be made in good fun and jest! A simple teasing game to get to know one another!


The shots start pouring on February 17th starting at 9pm EST!!
Gathering will begin at 8pm EST!!

Location: TBA



Tʜᴇ Jᴜᴅɢɪɴɢ

The "Hit Me" competitors will start at a base roll, but this can be increased with participation prior to the event! Competitors can achieve rolling modifiers. Along with modifiers, there will be “special rolls” that will help dictate exactly what happens to your characters in role play during the competition. If a specific number is rolled for your character, the action attributed to that numbered roll must occur.

Each person can achieve rolling modifiers by:
• Sharing forum role play posts on the Communion website about practicing for the competition. These should be at least 2-3 paragraphs long at the minimum to count!
• Participating in a practice that is set as an event by your guild GM, with your guild GM sending a screenshot with @names of those present for proof!

Special rolls will have actions that will dictate random role play ‘drunkenness’ occurrences during the game. Be aware these may change as you continue to roll:
• Vomiting.
• Falling over.
• Laughing uncontrollably drunk.
• Drunk-philosophical.
• Overly flirtatious drunk.
• Angry drunk.
• Goofy drunk.
• Emotional drunk.

With each round, the lowest rolls up to half will pass that round. Those that roll one of the half highest rolls will have to subtract one point from their overall health. Once you hit zero, your character is out. Modifiers will include:
• Resistance to one of the above mentioned rolls. These can only be used once, meaning if you roll the number that means "goofy drunk" more than once, and you only have 1 modifier placed there, you will only be able to ignore that once.
• Additional points to overall health.



Tʜᴇ Rᴜʟᴇs


1. All attendees and participants must exhibit good OOC sportsmanship. If your character will not do so IC, please make it known OOC that there are no issues or concerns.
2. All participants must show up on time for the scheduled competition. The competition will start on time and will proceed with who is available.
3. No poisoning drinks, no magic,
4. Throwing up in-character will disqualify you from the competition.
5. Last minute sign-ups will be allowed, but all of those individuals will only be allowed the base roll for winning said competition.


Tʜᴇ Aᴡᴀʀᴅ

The infamous title of The Communion's IRON GUT, that your character
will hold in character with a special tag on the website and on Discord!


Tᴏ Cᴏᴍᴘᴇᴛᴇ

To become a competitor, you can just show up last minute, but you will only be given the base roll with no modifiers. If you would like to earn modifiers and have your points calculated and presented on this post, sign up by responding to this thread with (please keep in mind that this information will be given to Rhea Rousseau In-Character and should be considered your in-character signing up to the event):

1. Character Name.
2. Character Race.
3. Handle in-game.
4. A picture of your character!
5. Boasting Quote for your Competitor Pair Card.


Tʜᴇ Cᴏᴍᴘᴇᴛɪᴛᴏʀs

Your face will be here!

Edited the first two paragraphs to clear up some questions I have received over time:


"The Communion is a Neutral, Tamriel-Wide Community Role Play Guild that organizes all individuals or guilds who consider themselves to be a part of the 'criminal' or 'underground' element. The Communion, headed by House Rousseau, creates a neutral organization for discussions and cooperation between both allied and rival criminal groups. House Rousseau provides services akin to an 'insurance policy' to all those that join. Annual dues are paid (IC only) to House Rousseau, purely to keep these services provided that would realistically cost coin. At no time does House Rousseau have any IC or OOC control over any group - this is a service provided to the organizations who join only. Guilds who are criminal themed, under ground themed, or are allies to such can join!

Those who join are protected under the Code of Honor which upholds the concept 'honor amongst thieves'. As House Rousseau also will uphold the Code, they will never act in any other situation except in violations of this Code without request. Meaning, your group will also be its own separate entity, outside of House Rousseau influence, save for violations of the Code. For example, part of this Code is that no violence can occur on Communion neutral territory (like the House Rousseau Inn or safe houses), but if an assassination occurs on those grounds, House Rousseau would uphold the Code."
