The Wandenreich's first assault, intended to measure the strength of the Gotei 13 and gain a foothold in the human world and Hueco Mundo brought them to two important revelations. First, with Yhwach still dormant, they lack the power needed to directly attack and defeat the Gotei 13 with losing most of their forces. Second, they were completely unaware of the number and strength of unaffiliated spiritual beings residing in the Human World and Hueco Mundo.
What came next was expected. With the loss of nine Sternritter, and no change in orders, Haschwalth determined there was only one way to proceed: Building an army with more than just quincy. On his order, agents of the Wandenreich descended on the human world and Hueco Mundo, offering untold power to any who would help bring an end to the Gotei.
As promised, with the site officially moving into the 1000 year blood war arc for the foreseeable future, OC characters may now officially join the Wandenreich in their war against the Gotei 13.
Joining the Wandenreich is as simple as signing up in this thread, and grants you access to a number of special benefits, though it does carry in character implications as well. Your character will be expected to follow the rules of the Wandenreich, and take on their mission of revenge against the Gotei 13. It should go without saying at this point, but joining Wandenreich makes you an official enemy of the Gotei 13 (assuming you weren't already).
Joining the Wandenreich has a number of special benefits for your character. Most notably, your character will be shot with a special version of the Heilig Pfeil, not unlike the version quincy use to restore the lost powers of those who use Letzt Stil. This process imprints on the target's soul and, along with a Wandenreich cross, grants them a portion of the quincies' power. This includes:
- The ability to manifest and use your own spirit weapon, governed by your existing racial mastery (up to Mastered level equivalent). This weapon can only be a variant style weapon and you cannot duel wield.
- Upon reaching HL you are granted the ability to manifest Vollstandig. It should be noted that Vollstandig does not stack with mask or segunda etapa. Quincy who join the Wandenreich unlock Vollstandig immediately regardless of rank.
- The ability to be granted a schrift once you have reached appropriate strength and proven yourself an ally of the Wandenreich.
It should be noted that these powers come with the requirement that you remain a member of the Wandenreich, and as with all Wandenreich powers, Haschwalth may, at any time, use Auswählen to strip you of these powers should you leave the Wandenreich or otherwise act against its interests.
On top of these inherited powers, you also gain access to a number of small benefits as a member of the Wandenreich. This includes access to canon quincy and Wandenreich items, the ability to use the quincies' shadow transportation, and the ability to receive medical treatment on par with the Gotei's 4th division.
You may also, with slightly more difficulty than quincy, apply to become a Sternritter and receive a schrift.
One final note concerning Shinigami that desire to join the Gotei 13. This is allowed though it will be much more difficult that joining with other races. Because of the Wandenreich's primary goal of destroying the Gotei 13, you will likely be more heavily monitored, and will not receive even the most basic of the above mentioned benefits until you have proven yourself an ally in character. This is determined on a case by case basis.
Sign-up is fairly straightforward, simply post with the account of the character you want to join and write up a description of how your character came to join the Gotei. For example:
-Were they recruited by a Quincy?
-Did they come themselves after hearing the Quincy were recruiting and offering power?
-Has your character had any previous interactions relevant to joining, such as being a criminal, from a race normally considered a threat to the Gotei, etc...?
This can be as long as short as you want but try and give at least some description of how and why it happened for the sake of the record.
