The lore of the Republic is built around a challenging of the tired rhetoric of Good vs. Evil as a standard method of story telling. We recognize that Good people do Evil things and more often than not it is a matter of perspective when we are merely attempting to servive. This is not to say that there is no sense of morality, but rather a more realistic approach to how we define our culture and nation as a whole.
The obvious center of the Republic lore is the Silver Sun. This allows us several concepts to play with in our background. A sun of silver is either literally the moon or methaphorically a rejection of the standard symbology of a golden sun. Many early tribes of man worshipped the sun as a golden idol. Rejecting this notion allows the departure from the mainstream and gives life to cynical views of standard deities or leads to the exploration of more creative alternatives.
We’re Not Your Traditional Roleplay!
The Republic takes a different approach than most guilds to RP. Our roleplay is encouraged through our structure, the events we host, the environment we create. It is not enforced through strict rules that hinder true freedom to explore your world and your character. Roleplay that happens spontaneously through actual immersion is far more enjoyable and true to the spirit of the concept than something forced or carried out only on a set of forums.
Our background stories are limited and very short allowing all the members of the guild to contribute through live events that are planned to a minimum to draw out a more realistic and natural flow. In the Republic, you will find secret socities not advertised in public; you will find rumors that will force you to pick a side and find your “truth.”
We are bringing ROLE back into ROLEPLAY where everyone has their own story to discover.
