Hello, Highborne peeps!
As mentioned on Facebook -
Matt and I have been discussing some sort of initiation ceremony for those who have joined the nation (including passing citizenship tests etc) over the course of the previous year to take their oaths to Highguard together at the Easter event. This might be an annual festival and could fit in nicely with Saturday being the day of the dead, and Sunday being the day of rebirth for those who have come in. (Winter Solstice, from the death of the old year to the birth of the new, maintaining the wheel etc)
There could be lots of roleplay opportunities for teaching and cleansing and preparing for the oathtaking, also the chance for those who wish to reaffirm their oaths, both within chapters and across the nation - and for the newest citizens it would be a great celebration of their new status.
Please share any ideas you have below - maybe about how your chapter might take part, or what the ceremony could/should look like, or what it might involve? All thoughts welcome!
