So, you’re interested
in joining the Daoine Sidhe? Well, first of all, please make sure
you have read our web page and our help file (help daoine, claninfo
daoine). This will help you get a better understanding of what we’re
Secondly, double check
to see if you have fulfilled all of our requirements as listed below:
- Have a minimum of
- Have earned at least
1000qp for every 50 levels. (Level 1-50: 1000qp, level 51-100:
2000qp, level 101-150: 3000qp, level 151-201: 4000qp. If you are
a level 1, 2-class remort, you will need 5000qp. If you are a
level 100, 3-class remort, you will need 10,000qp, and so on.)
- Have Klaatu say,
in front of witnesses, that he *wuvs* you.
- Speak Gaelic.
- Have a BA in Celtic
If you fulfill these
requirements and have a good sense of humor, then you can begin
our application process. If you are a little short of the requirements,
don’t worry! Just take the time to gain the necessary levels
or quest points and apply later.
Okay, okay, so the
last two aren't really requirements for joining... but you do need some knowledge of
Now, onto the application process!
To begin, write a note
to Daoine on the Personal board. (You put Daoine in the To: field.)
Although we do not
have specific guidelines for our application notes, we will be more
impressed by a note that describes why you want to join Daoine,
what you plan to give and get out of joining Daoine, role playing
in your character, or just describing your character. Those kinds
of notes will have more meaning than a note that just says, “I
want to join Daoine because Daoine is the bestest!! I am [level],
[race], and [class].”
After you have submitted your
application note, you will move onto the interview phase. Although
we will try to contact you for interviews, we will not always check
to see if you are online.
It is your responsibility to
take the initiative and request interviews from any fae online.
However, if the person you are requesting an interview from tells
you that he or she is busy at the moment, do not harass the person
every ten minutes asking, “Are you free, yet?” This
will likely cause the person to give you a bad review and could
possibly kill your application. Also, do not request an interview
if you know you will need to leave in ten minutes.
After the interviews,
if the Sidhe believe you are someone we would like to have in our
clan and you truly want to join us, you will move onto the first
test, the prank. Your mission is to think of something mischievous,
devious, and just all around silly to do. It is advised that before
or while your prank is being played out, you contact a few of the
fae online at the time to watch the prank. Or even play the prank
on them. ^_-
When the prank is complete,
post another note to Daoine on the Personal board describing what
you had planned, the results of your prank, and your log of the
event or where we can find the log file online. Also include the
names of the fae who witnessed your prank.
This test is to prove
that you can and will be mischievous, as that is a major focal point
of our clan. You need to be able to handle pranks being played on
you within the clan and outside the clan, all in good health and
If the majority of
the clan feels your act of mischief was well thought up and silly,
you will move onto the next and final stage of our application process.
You will be given a quest to find or kill a mob, find and deliver
something from the fae assigning your quest to a mob, find and deliver
something from one mob to another, or find something and deliver
it to the fae assigning your quest. (One of the above, not all of
Of course, mob names
will not likely be provided, so when applying, it’s best to
learn about the areas around your level (higher if you are a remort).
Speedwalks, hunt, door type spells, and portals are forbidden.
This test is to prove that you have a formidable
knowledge of the mud and that you do indeed like to explore and
quest, which is another important part of our clan’s theme.
If you have made it
to this point, then Congratulations!!
You have proven your worth and have been accepted into a world of
laughter and mirth. You will be welcomed onto our sacred grounds,
given a tour of our hall, and all it and your kin have to offer.
The fae come in many
different forms and sizes, from pixies to leprechauns, centaurs,
and even the occasional gryphon or hellhound. So don’t be
surprised when you find yourself sitting face-to-face with and anthro-dragon
intent on giving you an interview!
We've even found a human changling or two among our ranks!
If you have any questions, feel free to send a tell to Mirrim,
Tori, Shakala, Torasin, or any of our clannies.
