A thread for the various guilds, churches and companies of the League to introduce themselves, that new League characters may find a group that suits.
Carta Bellamarina [bellamarina.coraline.org/] is a diversified trade guild operating out of Sarvos. It has interests in banking, shipping, heavy industry and all sorts of trading.
I am particularly looking to recruit for:
Bellamarina Militant - the mercenary arm of the Carta. We are rebuilding after heavy losses in recent wars and I am looking to make our Anvil company an elite archery unit. The aim is to be disciplined, heavy armoured but able to move fast all battle, good shots, and shoot lots of arrows. It will require commitment in kit and in practice on and off the field.
I want us to be known as the best and charge accordingly. Which in turn means that we can be well equipped with magic items, potions, enchantments and pay well. Then we can flash the cash at the many bars, eateries and other entertainments like proper mercenaries.
Pm me or talk to Silas van Hoepenkak di Sarvos on the field.

Encourages new players to also consider the option of starting without a group, and enjoying the game arriving and finding your place!
It is just as valid an option as joining anyone who might post here; you trade starting in a group with pre-known peoples for entering play with a strong excuse to introduce yourself to as many people as possible. You are not associated with anyone else’s actions or good/bad impressions they have given others, and you will be able to find out in play what the groups are really like in person. It is always very hard to judge in these sorts of threads as you get no real feel for the reality of the groups, or the reasons they are recruiting openly.
I promise you that you will find a group easily, as there are lots of styles of play, and no one will turn down someone who shares their views (likely as you are in the same nation!) and especially who are bringing extra game and resources to the team! More importantly, you might find that you really gel with a group, or even just a person, who didn’t advertise@
I’m a new player looking for a troupe to join. I played one event before as a trial (and have switched nations since) but would really like a few ties before jumping in so I’m not completely alone. Any suggestions (I’ve hunted around and couldn’t see any, but could easily have missed it)?
