The dormant isle of Gildorym, lies within the Korrin Archipelagio, a collection of unexplored and rarely navigated isles off the Sword Coast. For thousands of years the isles have been left more or less untouched. Not for any lack of wealth, merely becuase seafarers interests have been more directed towards the Moonshae isles to the south. If you were to catch a wayward fisherman on the outskirts of the Korinn, you may hear omens of the isles harboring the deep sea goddess Umberlee's protection. A result that has achieved favorable results for many, as the Pirates of the Moonshae rarely delve its waters, in fear of her punishment.
The year is 1398DR, and Maer Dauldon Longstride, a lesser noble from Waterdeep, was having increasing trouble improving his standing within the city. The markets were controlled, the courts influenced by others, and he came to the dawning realisation his enemies were tightening their grip on his house. So he sought elsewhere, sending his men to delve into the rumor thick taverns, and peak their ears. It was there, they heard rumors of the treasures and unpopulated lands not far off the Sword Coast, north of the Moonshae Isles. Scouts were dispatched across the sea, to investigate these claims, when they returned he was greatly pleased. They talked of untouched isles, rich with resources and harboring only primitive habitants. So his mind was set, and he planned his expedition to the archipelagio to find an isle worth colonizing. He raised notices throughout Waterdeep, an expedition of fortune and adventure, seeking hardy men and women looking for a new life. The answer was resounding, he had enough men and women to fill two Boats, and it was a push even that that. Leaving with what little assets he had remaining, he departed from the harbor in the summer of that year.
They sailed the hard seas of the Sword Coast, pushing into the Archipelagio. Many islands were barren rockland, some had plains but the soil was poor and infertile, so they sailed on. Months passed and the voyage was becoming fruitless, food was running scarce and fever was spreading throughout the ships. Maer Dauldon, reached an impass, seeing many ships on the horizon he was left to an impass for he could surely only make one more journey. So he prayed, he prayed to umblerlea. Ordering his men to pull a Goat from below, he sliced its neck, offering his blood and body as sacrifice to the Bitch Sea Goddess, so she might bless his voyage.
The crew grew dark, knowing their lords plea could attract the territorial goddess's Ire. They were not far wrong, the rain began, and the waves crashed, throwing the ships astray. The ships could not see further then 100 yards, through the thick waves that tossed them about the ocean. Maer Dauldon, opened his looking glass and thought he caught a glimpse, of a cliff, with a lone figure dancing on his edge. Spinning in all manner of directions, when he stopped, the waves crashed down on the ships and all was silent..
The boats were destroyed, but they were not without luck, they had struck land. Landing Maer Dauldons vessel on the shores of a strange new land. Collecting what resources he had left, and carrying his sick and wounded from the ravaged vessel, making his way inland, through dark woods until he found a peninsula of grassland. With no way of return home he thought better to create shelter, he began build homesteads and farms so they can outlive the winter. He began ordering the exploration of the isle, sending out scouts to the four corners of the isle. They returned with news of great mountains in the north, thick jungle in the west, and a barren arid land to the south. They also spoke of a Tribe, who called themselves the People of the Black Blood. simple folk with not much in the way of technology, but seemingly peaceful.
How wrong they were. After the 7th day on the isle, sightings were reported of strange figures in the dark nights, howling in the distance, and then eventually one approached the homestead. The beast was covered head to toe in fur, held claws twice the length of a mans hand and bore the face of a wolf. Its anger grew and to began to tear at the settlers, hacking indiscriminately at men women and children. Tearing them apart. 12 settlers died that day, before the guards struck down the beast. Maer Dauldon attempted to build a barricade, around the settlers, but it was not enough. Attacks of wolfmen began to launch themselves against the clutter of buildings. The second attacks fought off, but many more came, stronger and larger then the last. Eventually Maer Dauldon Longstride himself was struck down and dragged off into the night. It wasnt long before all hope was thought lost, when a lone ship was spotted on the horizon. The ship contained his son, Richard Longstride, who had sold his fathers estates and assets to hire a retinue of men, to search for his Father. He marched inland to inspect the sheer chaos and after hearing news of his fathers disapearance, he sent men across the land, searching every corner of the isle for the tribe, slaughtering every man woman and child of the Black Blood Tribe until not one remained. They called it the cleansing. But with it, no evidence of Maer Dauldon was found. He was also told by the settlers, that Maer Dauldon wished to name the isle after his late wife, Gildorym. And so 7 years on, the settlement grows strong. The retinue of men returned home, paid well and sending word to Waterdeep that the isle had land and riches. Richard erected huge battlements to defend the town should any lycanthropy epidemic arise. Trade flourishes and the town Prospers. He decided to name the town after his father, in his memory, convinced is now too far gone to be alive.
With the ship that sent the retinue back to Waterdeep, He dispatched for more notices to be raised in Waterdeep. Scattered throughout the markets, and Taverns. For the Isle of Gildorym, seeking settlers & adventurers, for a new life, for Fame and Fortune. Report to the Docks and find the Salty Sealion on the first day of every month. Travel is free, and rewards fruitful..

Gildorym currently has two factions, and is looking to expand for more. Keep in mind these factions dont relate to the guilds or organisations players can create freely.
The City State of Maer Dauldon, The home of the intitial settlers to the isle. Only 8 years old. But standing as a bastion in the darkness of the Isle. They welcome all travellers and allow persons of approvable morales to reside within its walls. Its Lord, Richard Longstride, strives tirelessly to keep the town safe, from what lurks outside.
The City State of Filara, A recent expedition from the sword coast, by Lady Nyos has landed in the eastern side of the isle. Immediately setting up a palisade and the necessitys.

- No Meta Gaming - Using knowledge outside the world (chat/forums) to benefit you ingame. You are however, allowed to use Faerun or game lore provided its possible for your char to know.
- No Power Gaming, when you RP an action, "Attempt" it. IE "Richard attempts to put his hand on Johns shoulder, to hold him down."
- Your character must fit within the world setting - It must have an authentic RP name - You must have an RP skin that relates to your character. - If your character RP dies, your new char must have no recollection of the death. Seeking out revenge on the person who killed you is considered Meta Gaming.
- Your character is to be in RP mode at all times. No Jump running, it makes no sense. You cant suddenly decide if the situation isnt going your way, to turn around and say "I wasnt RPing" the way the admins will see it is you were breaking a rule and will favor the other side. So RP at all times.
- Use the RP PVP system written [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
- RP out your characters Age or Race restrictions if there are any.
- You must have a legitimate reason to kill a player.
- All players are expected to be friendly and helpful. Trolling, abusing or spamming other members will result in the banhammer.
- Global is not to be used as a general chat channel, it spams chat, and makes it hard to RP. Use minimally. - Not to abuse any loopholes or bugs found in the server, report them, so we can fix them.
- Dont block climb,
Build & Griefing rules
- You can build anywhere you like in the Wilderness. But be aware, people can grief it in RP. Towns offer the benefit of protection. Please respect the land, keep it tidy, dont leave pools of lava lieing about.
- If your griefing, you must do so IC. Also, you must do it when the owner is online so they have a chance to RP out the event.
- Griefing cattle is forbidden, its a nightmare for farmers to gather cattle, so doing it will result in a warning and if it reoccurs, a tempban. - All buildings must fit in with the Faerun setting (think medieval!).
- Buildings made of wood, dont have stone rooves! It doesnt make sense, it would fall down, if we find it, we'll ask you to change it, or remove the whole building.
- Dwellings of more then 3 players in the same place are considered a town. Only Donators may build a town and the location/name must be agreed. - If you cut down a tree, try to get all the bits of wood so it disapears, and replant after. Keep the landscape beautiful!
