The Finer Things Club is a wiki-club of fine gentlemen (and gentleladies) dedicated to a life of chivalry, courtesy, and the liberal arts. The club appreciates the humanities: art, history, philosophy, music, politics, literature, poetry, and more. These topics are discussed in a highly civilised manner, and the members are amongst the most culturally-submerged individuals north of the equator.

Their greatest opponents, through bitter and heartache, are the Mathematicians, believed to have been conceived from the pits of Tartarus.

Requirements to Join

In order for one to join the Finer Things Club, one must promote a civil life headlined by the fine arts, and indulge in the humanities by choice. The requirements are as follows:

  • The gentleman (or gentlelady) must lead a chivalrous lifestyle and be intellectually advanced.
  • The gentleman (or gentlelady) must be adequately knowledgeable in the social sciences; that is, the field of history, politics, and geography.
  • The gentleman (or gentlelady) must have a keen appreciation for the classics (art and music).
  • The gentleman (or gentlelady) must be able to carry on a conversation maturely, using first-class grammar, spelling, and mechanics, and be able to defend and debate their opinions, again, in a civilised manner.
  • The gentleman (or gentlelady) must be kind and worldly; show courtesy to all and be willing to accept new ideas. Do not be opinionated or stubborn.
  • The gentleman (or gentlelady) must independently indulge in activities such as reading or writing, ideally in a classical sense.
