Knightsbridge Consulting is a roleplaying cabal is Secret World Legends that has been active since 2012 when The Secret World was introduced. Our players are creative, smart, friendly folk who enjoy interacting with one another and adding their stories to the larger SWL universe. We are a ROLEPLAY cabal. What this means is that this is a cabal where we provide opportunities to interact with other roleplayers via writing/plot prompts. We have a participation requirement of a filed case report each month. A case report can be fairly short or it can be long. It is the summary of what your character did in an given case. You can take a look at the case files section of the forum if you'd like to see what the cases are like. You can also see the different styles of reports.
The main thing to remember is that the roleplay you engage in is up to you. Are you someone who prefers in game? No problem! Find someone to RP in game. You can work your case there, using the game world as a stand-in for a case location. You can RP social activities or anything else you choose. If you are someone who prefers docs, forum, or Discord RP that's no problem. You can essentially RP your cases however you want. The only hard and fast requirement is that you submit a case report. We are not inflexible and if a cabal member needs an extension or something comes up, all you have to do is let us know. Real life comes first, but the cabal cannot survive without participation.
We try to provide as many avenues for RP as possible for everyone. Ultimately, YOU are responsible for reaching out and communicating with others if you are looking to RP. Our members are awesome but none of us are mindreaders. If you are looking to do something with someone just give a shout in the forums or Discord. It's as easy as that. Do you have ideas for group RP? Talk to any of the Senior Consultants and we will support you in any way we can. The point is to have fun and work together to create an environment where every player can find something to enjoy.
KBC is a neutral company in the Secret War, but it has agreements with the major factions that allows it to employ their agents full time, and work contracts for the societies as well. It used to be a Templar cabal in TSW because of the game limitations, but now it's faction-independent. Anyone can join.
We expect our Consultants to give their priority to KBC, except for situations out of their control - both in terms of time allotment, and which way they should side in case of a conflict of interest. Someone who sees KBC as a side job should apply for our Freelancers Project rather than as a Consultant. If you apply with us, we should be the main cabal for your character.
Aside from the RP opportunities within the cabal, we are committed to contributing to the RP community at large. Craft Ramsay began with hosting the annual Ealdwic Ghost Tour on his own in 2012. Knightsbridge consultants enjoy keeping up this tradition of community involvement.
We continue Knightsbridge's mission of hosting interesting events that are open to all players. Knightsbridge hosts UPSTAIRS every so often at the upstairs bar of the Horned God in Ealdwic. These are casual drop-in RP events where players can show up and meet others just to socialise.
LORE is an event we present at the end of each month. Players enjoy musical sets inspired by the Secret World legends--the lore of the game. We have a pub quiz where players compete for the monthly lore championship, all in good fun.
In addition to our regular events, we are always working on pop up events in association with other players or groups in the community. It makes us very proud to be known in the Secret World community as a cabal that works well with others for the improvement of the community at large. Our members share in the responsibilities of hosting and running events. We are always looking for players who enjoy interacting with others and who will bring their enthusiasm for the game to our events. Players who are members of Knightsbridge Consulting are expected to reflect our values as a group. That is to be helpful and welcoming to others. The most important rule at Knightsbridge is to have fun!
Our forums can be found here on our site. We have both in-character and out-of-character forum communication to keep our members connected and informed regarding all the activities we manage. This is where forum RP happens, discussions about the game and characters occur, and where we keep up with everything we having going on at any given time. The forums are ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL to being a productive cabal member and participation is required. We try to provide space for our members to develop their characters as well as their investigative plots. The Knightsbridge offices are a place where characters come and go, hang out together, work together...all of the things that you might expect.
Yes, there is such a thing as Secret Twitter. This is one of the ways players can add to the immersive experience of RP outside the game. Secret Twitter is a network of players who have created in-character Twitter accounts. Knightsbridge and many of our Consultants can be found on Twitter. It is a fun way to interact with other characters in the game. You will even find official NPC accounts for many of the characters there! While Knightsbridge Consulting does not require our Consultants to join in the Secret Twitter experience, we highly recommend it.
Discord is an absolute necessity for any of our Consultants. It is where we do our most up-to-date communication regarding the cabal. It is a place where we have real time discussions about all sorts of different aspects of the cabal. It is also used for investigations and IC communication for those players who may not have time to get into the game but want to interact in character. Knightsbridge does require that our Consultants join Discord. We also have general channels that are open to the public for those who may want to check out the cabal or simply hang out with friends.
