Those who believe themselves to be free
have no chance of escape.

This moon belongs to the suit of Souls. To apply to join, write a piece depicting a twist of fate placing your Gladiator on the path to joining Fortuna, state which suit and card you would desire to apply for, and then PM the bundle of it to The Strongest.



Fortuna's titles, explained.

King: Those who are tied most closely to Fortuna's will. They are the core executive and administrative power of Fortuna.

Queen: During Fortuna's field operations, the Queen acts as the King's partner.

Jack: The Jack takes on the role of being a diplomat stationed within Fortuna's own base, and they are the closest voices to Fortuna from the outside.

Ace: The Ace is a member of one of Fortuna's support casts, able to be called upon to aid whenever the full extent of Fortuna's capabilities are authorized.




Fortuna is. This is the basic truth. All things have a source. This, too, is truth. For every inferno, there is a spark. For every alliance, there is a meeting. For every slumping corpse, there is a killer. For every revolution, there is a voice. Ours is not to seek knowledge of this plan. Ours is to render Fortuna’s will upon the world. We are the invisible cogs within the clock face that move the hands and the great hammer that breaks through the walls to let Fate flow as Fate will.

King: Tantalum

There is nothing new under the sun. Behind the thin layer of the world that we perceive is an immense series of actions and reactions. We are those privileged to seek out the reactions that lead to leaping advances in what we call knowledge. Cause and effect drive our research and development. The world around is moving all the time, and through all its furious machinations we observe.

King: Infinitum

Queen

Jack

Ace




Fortuna is the Goddess of Fate and of Fortune. We are her humble servants, instruments of her will, serving in her name. It is our destiny to further the development of the knowledge and wisdom of this world, to form a united force worthy of Fortuna, to seek out what Fate wills and to ease the minds of those who would not bend in the face of the storm which it is our fate to create, that the world may move according to its destiny.

King

Queen

Jack

Ace





Chaos is an illusion. All is occurring as it is meant to. We are the animated proof of this statement. Even as our comrades shape the world around us, we know what occurs, and we ensure that it runs like clockwork. We see through shadows. Smoke and mirrors do not distract us. Where the hammer swings, we are always there, guiding its motion to ensure that it remains on the proper track.

Well you diffidently have my curiosity! I'll likely be an independent until Hollywood's storyline runs it's course, but do you mind explaining what this is a little bit? You've got four suits there, so I'm assuming you've got something big in mind.

I'd like to know more as well.. This seems like it would need more than just 4 participants.. Consider my curiosity piqued.

Formed by the trio of myself, Tantalum, and Infinitum, Fortuna is going to be the story-driven clan here in the wRHG. The four suits are differing divisions within Fortuna's overall framework, and as the clan develops, the different suits will find themselves with differing tasks in the coming days of Fortuna. The Bones represent Fortuna through their actions, primarily. They are the movers and the shakers in the wider world. What has been prophecised by Fortuna is made true by the Bones. The Minds are Fortuna's research and intelligence branch. Taking in data collected to keep Fortuna on the cutting edge of technology, as well as aiding in determining the course that fate wills Fortuna to take. The Hearts are the diplomatic branch of Fortuna, acting as her primary liaisons with the organizations and denizens of the wRHG. Lastly, the Souls perform as the security and police force of Fortuna.

We're going to change up how the clans interact with one another, here, because Fortuna will not exist in a vacuum. The other clans will become involved in our ever-growing tale, and we're going to make something memorable together, thanks to the fact that we plan to start up inter-clan events and interactions, the likes of which we hope will get people really fired up to be joining them (ideally, them mostly turning their desires towards joining Fortuna's ranks).

I find it delightful that I tricked you lot into coming here, and you took to it so well. While I won't be joining (I'm much too independent and making silly little not-clan clans, I can't POSSIBLY join), I do wish you much luck.

Hmm, the story-based clan.

Anyways, the theme is good and I loom forward to what each suit will go for in the long run. The descriptions are there sure but the product, I shall wait. :)

Good luck, The Strongest.

Ultimately, it is our hope that the four suits work together in a meaningful way to the story. I, too, look forward to the storied histories that will come out of this organization's future members and affiliates.
