Arda's time has drawn to an end, as all good things must. Remember it with fondness, and may it rest in peace.

Goodbye, everyone, I loved you all and Arda very dearly.

Former members may still log in and view all the old posts (now showing all posts, not just in-character and profiles), but the board is unavailable to new registrants and officially read-only. The CBox is still functional and many people still stop by to say hello.

This site's host, InvisionFree (zIFBoards), is transferring all the boards they host to their updated platform known as ZetaBoards as of an announcement on 7/17/2017. Arda has been converted as of January 2018. You can expect to see some visual changes when you visit, but all data (posts, accounts, forums, etc) remains intact.

Additionally, Photobucket stopped allowing hotlinking from its free accounts in 2017 so many images are currently "missing."
All files are still safely stored and awaiting transfer to a better hosting solution. You can read here for more info.


Per an additional announcement on 5/7/18, this board is being converted a second time, this time to TapaTalk from ZetaBoards. Details pending further information.

B.A.D.I. - A guild for you?; For good/neutral characters.

A while back I created an NPC organization in Arda, bent on the destruction of demons and other occult creatures. Of course, this was right up Sartana's alley, and made for a good bit of IC detail, and back story; not to mention giving a bit more purpose to his adventuring. It was called B.A.D.I.—The Bureau of Abyssal Defense and Investigation. It was neat, and I gave it a lot of thought, but it never really saw a lot of use. So, now, I figure if people are interested, maybe I can make it into a guild. I've tweaked it a bit to accompany being a Player-lead organization. Details are below!

..But if you're too lazy to read it, B.A.D.I.'s a good/neutral only mercenary guild that you can gain ranks in, which earns you items and fame. You do this through special, DM-lead missions. Guild member disappearances have put BADI on edge, and provide for an interesting, albeit dangerous, guild plot.

Well Sarty, after reviewing everything I am definitely interested in joining. Put me down as a Magic Master and if being called a water magic specialist works I'll go with that.

Wow, great idea! :w00t: Obviously, I can't join, but still, this is a lot of effort and I hope it will be a great success.

By the way, for the Stealth Layman, what's a "pock pocket"? :unsure:

Anni, Hanzo, and Mere: You're all more than welcome to join and I'd love to have you in the guild. Unfortunetly, even if you are all quite strong, you must start at D-class members. I hope you dont mind. It's just that, I'm trying to keep the guild realistic, and even powerful members must prove themselves before they're trusted with tougher missions.

We're gonna have to special-order your uniform, Anni. :lol:

Dmoney: If he ever turns good, I'd love to have him. But it'd be nice for 'The Sinners' to get a good roster of members together; a guild war would be fantastic.

The Narrator: Helping out would be great, though I'd be cool if you were actually in the guild as well. I'm cooking up a few ideas for roles like scholars, teachers, or sages in the guild. I dont know if Tob would fit them, though. XD

Dark Wraith: Thanks. And dont give me that look. D:< You know what I meant.

Arthur: Of course you can join. Good to have you.

Winter: You don't have to join if you dont want to. :lol: I'll definitely sign you up, though.

-------------------------------

Five members so far? Pretty good. ^__^ It'd be awesome to have a few more, though. I was hoping for something like ten. And remember, if anyone has questions or suggestions, feel free to post 'em.

Hmm I like the idea of this guild. I was going to have Anika join the sinners, but it isnt really her style. They are more hard core evil characters like killers. Anika is more of a rogue looking for her place. I think it would be good for her to find a home within B.A.D.I. It would definitely be a twist since she has always surrounded herself by evil characters in the past. I think it is time to see where a little positive influence leads her. As for the title i was thinking something like magic layman [oracle] but if I cant do that I would go with magic layman [protection specialist]
Name: Anika
Gender: Female
Race: Human
Class: Seer, oracle
Occupation: Dark Enchantress

Age: 19

Skills: Scry, alchemy, Heal

You guys are all set to join. Anika, I put you down as a [Protection Specialist] only because some people might not know what an oracle is, okay? But you can change this anytime you like. It's just a title, after all.

And I missed your last question, Arthur-- yes, all spells count. Even ones gained by PrC classes (though not ones gained by items).
