UPDATE! The circle is now up and running! Contact "Noz Hamilton" for an invite!

What: Motorsport-themed circle & events.
Faction: Dominion.
Where: Mostly Deradune, sometimes Nexus or other locations.
Themes: Deradune roleplay, motorsport roleplay, racing roleplay, Dominion roleplay, fun.
Recruiting officer(s): Noz Hamilton
Founding date: 17.10.2015

A Draken man spurred his red uniblade down the dusty road. The machine's motor roared and its single wheel cast so much dust and dirt aside that it all formed a dust column which could be seen easily all the way to the depot where other racers and mechanics were keenly watching. Other Draken, Chua, even some Cassian (most of them lowborn, although there was some Highborn strolling around, placing bets) and Mechari.The uniblade rider wasn't far from the hastily constructed goal. A few more seconds and the Draken guided his uniblade to the goal and pulled the machine to a halt. "Three seconds faster than the last time", said a Cassian mechanic who walked up to the Draken and congratulated him. "Let's have a look at the uniblade - next time it'll be another three seconds faster, eh?"

Ganzorig of the tribe Ironmaw watched all this from a hastily-built podium where he had all the mechanical and electronical equipment he needed for proper overseeing. The Draken glanced at the Chua beside him, the one who was responsible of many repairs and tinkerings in this particular area. "What you think?" Ganzorig asked and pointed at the red uniblade and its Draken rider. The Chua pondered this for a moment and replied sternly: "Red one goes fastest."

"Boss", another Draken appeared near the podium. "A visitor." This new Draken pointed at the Highborn Cassian who marched toward the podium, escorted by a few other Cassians. The Highborn man wore a stern expression and started speaking from afar: "Ganzorig, your uniblades cause my velocirexes to be jittery! And that isn't good, now, is it? No jittery velocirex can participate in a race."

Ganzorig sighed. He'd need to move the velocirexes and other non-mechanical steeds further away from the main road and that wasn't always such an easy task. "Let me think about a solution", he agreed. He didn't afford to anger any of the Highborn Cassians, or any of the participants. In the end, the entire mission of Deradune Racing Association was to promote the motorsport hobby in a fun and relaxed way.

Hello! The initial IC story there is a tad long and it didn't cover up everything, so here goes.

I am void, and I am here to present you an idea for a circle (and possible events, naturally) that I am brewing with one friend here in WildStar. This thread's purpose is to see if there would be interest in this kind of idea. The circle will be made if there is enough interest. :)

So, Deradune Racing Association. Pretty much tells the major theme in the name already - racing (including mechanical and non-mechanical steeds). Somewhat inspired by Star Wars' Tatooine podracing (nothing as aggressive!) and Thousand Needles racing in World of Warcraft, and of course, primarily by the actual motorsports in real life. The circle would be centered in Deradune unless another location fits better - the reasons for Deradune to be chosen is that it is suitably low level area, it has already loads of Draken and Chua, and enough Mad Max/Tatooine feel to it.

A short list of themes and activities I'd like to bring forward with this circle concept:
  • Roleplaying for tech enthusiasts, both the racers and the mechanics. And of course for the stablemasters who take care of the velocirexes, etc.
  • Social interaction within the Dominion.
  • Promotion of nice locations within the game.
  • Events that include racing, mechanics' job, betting.
  • Events that include showing off the newest tech, the strongest velocirexes, the fanciest tricks made with hoverboards (yes, I think the hoverboards could be included as well!).

So... yeah, I think here's most of it. What do you think? Worth a try? Not worth a try? Feedback's appreciated!

Thank you for reading! Have a fine day. :)

It's always worth giving something a try. I don't actively play Dominion side, but I'm sure you can find plenty of interest there.

You could consider using the hoverpark blocks and such to create a sort of training facility, too. Would be an interesting idea for an RP hub

I may play a highborn Cassian, but she'd totally attend this sort of thing as a spectator (not an active participant. That's for those of lower social status...). She used to go to this kind of activity as a sort of social, team-building activity with her squad in the navy, as she was the only highborn and the Mechari didn't know what fun was anyway; the rest of the squad often brought her to "lower class" places ;)

I say go for it! Would be great to see this sort of thing take off, as it looks like it has a lot of potential for some really fun roleplaying!

Looking forward to see you there! I hope we get enough racers, though, that we can start taking bets too, heheh. I think even Highborn Cassian would be interested in such an activity. ;)

If I were you, I'd advertise this circle at the next Golden Jabbit or any other public event, maybe give a date or a location.

I hope to be there on Axton, cheers man. Sounds like it'll be a blast if anything. Very wildstar-ish and promotes some freedomistic roleplay on Dominion. Nexus isn't fun if you aren't speeding through it on a massive motorcycle with five meter exhaust pipes fuming with hot fire :thumb:

How else do you plan on showing those Exile pups who the real bosses of Nexus are. ;)

Haha, indeed!

We are intending to set up the circle this weekend. Unfortunately (or not!) the name Deradune Racing Association is too long, so we need to shorten it to Nexus Racing Association - this of course may also mean that we can be found all around Nexus and not just in Deradune. :) I will update this thread once the time is nigh for the circle to be opened!

Thank you all!
