I thought about posting this in General Questions, but I wanted more of a discussion.
Theris is not currently a member of any city or any house. I did this because I want to take some time to experience the game world as a neutral entity; I'd like to explore the places and people who exist in the game without having to worry (too much) about a good portion of them trying to murder me. I think that joining a city would cut off some of those opportunities for me, because it seems like no matter what city you're in, there are people from another city who don't want you walking into their territory. I realize that conflict between groups is what makes the game interesting for a lot of people, but I think that if I ever do decide to align myself with a faction again, I could make a much more informed decision if I've had a while to explore each city and talk with its citizens. I know the best way to learn about a city is to join it, but I really don't want to deal with changing my citizenship a lot (leaving Mhaldor cost me my head last time!) or creating a bunch of alts that I'm just going to throw away later.
However, being a rogue is lonely. I don't have many people to talk to, and I don't really ever know what's happening in the world. I'd like to join an organization, perhaps a clan or city-unaffiliated house, that would give me an active and enjoyable community to be connected to without getting me on anybody's bad side.
Basically, I'd like to know if there are any good neutral organizations out there, with active members, which are fun to be involved in.
