    Default 17th Advance Sanctuary Guard now forming! [RP-PvP focused Guild]

    So here's what I am considering; World PvP has always seemed neat to me, but with PvP servers being so malignant and with such horrible community spirit, the idea of forming this on a RP/PvP server never particularly appealed. Plus, I have long wanted to try out a more military setting within the Guardian faction, and think that it would present some interesting plots and character ideas.

    I -think-, however, that this could work on Faeblight! I know a number of Defiants are aching for some more world PvP, and if enough roleplayers are interested in this we could give it to them. Both from a gameplay perspective and an RP one, this guild could lead to some neat times. So please; Read the following, and tell me what you think! What I should change, what works, and what doesnt are all things I am hoping you can help me with so I can make this work.

    Name and Purpose
    Tag Name: Sanctuary Guard
    IC Name: 17th Advance Sanctuary Guard

    Motto: "Power without justice is meaningless, but justice without power is equally so."

    OOC Purpose: A guild for Roleplayers who enjoy civil PvP, both in Warfronts and World PvP. Guild will have a weekly program for group warfronts, in addition to world PvP alongside IC 'campaigns' roleplayed in Defiant territory.

    IC Purpose: The 17th Advance Sanctuary Guard is Sanctum's eyes and ears in enemy territory. Based out of a camp in Scarlet Gorge, the role of the 17th Guardsman is one of the spear, not the shield; Instead of defending as the typical Guard unit does, the 17th is almost always on the attack.


    Events
    While participation in events is highly recommended, I will never discount a player for having to put the real world first. This is a game afterall; And these things are here to be enjoyed, not a chore!

    - Weekly 'campaigns' in Defiant Territory!

    In the roleplayed form of an IC dispatchment to various locations within enemy lands, we will have a time set aside once a week to all get together and seek out Defiants to challenge in world PvP.

    - Weekly group WF runs!
    Once a week, we will have the guild get together for an afternoon or so of back to back warfronts! These will help build group strategy and create bonding between our members.

    - RP get togethers!
    On no particular schedule, by which I mean as often as possible, we'll RP lighter stuff such as off-duty time at various taverns throughout Telara or other less militaristic events.



    Hierarchy and Rank Structure:


    Advancement within the team's rank structure would require two things:
    A) Active participation in the guild's IC engagements, to warrant the promotion
    B) The Prestige Rank required to bear the title of said rank

    Captain
    The highest officer rank in the guild, held only by three players who each hold a specific jurisdiction; Namely- Commanding Officer, Head Tactician, and Head Trainer.

    Lieutenant(Grades 1 ~ 3)
    The junior officer rank. Given to players who exhibit excellent leadership qualities in both PvP engagements and roleplay. Very few players will be granted this rank. IC and OOC is allowed to take command if a ranking officer is not present. Are expected to possess an acute understanding of how to play their class and role. Are given a grade of 1 to 3 depending on skill and IC factors.

    Sergeant
    The highest of the grunt ranks. Given to players who are active in their participation of guild RP and PvP events.

    Corporal
    The standard grunt rank, denoting a full member of the team. Given to players that are level 50, and have fully met the guild's joining requirements.

    Irregular
    The lowest grunt rank, denoting a recently joined character or one who is not yet level 50. Has restricted access to guild facilities.

    Free Auxiliary
    Outside the standard hierarchy; This rank is reserved for roleplayers who wish to be involved with the guild but are not PvPers. Appropriate characters for this rank are supporting roles such as the family of Guardsman, camp cooks, and any civilian role that might have reason to accompany the unit.


    Charter and Code of Conduct

    I, a member of the 17th Sanctuary Guard, do hereby declare and promise to uphold the following ideals to the best of my ability, in order to be a positive citizen of the Faeblight community and in the wider PvP community.

    I promise to maintain a cool head during PvP, and remember that this is just a game in the end. While I want to win, and will try my very best to do so, I will not resort to personal attacks on my opponents in chat or on the forums, irregardless of if they choose to do so.

    I promise to do my part to keep the RP community's spirit, by encouraging roleplay in the game world whenever possible and by participating in it whenever able. While I will not engage in roleplay during warfronts for the simple sake of practicality, I will also promise to integrate world PvP into my roleplaying with the guild whenever possible.

    I promise to do my part to keep the wider Faeblight community's spirit by keeping my actions in the public chat channels civil and within reason. I also promise to never intentionally troll, nor encourage or abide trolling in any form.

    And finally, I swear to uphold and stand by my guildmates; To encourage and better them; and to ensure that the whole guild is enjoying their time in the game as much as possible.

    I like this idea Remissus. Really has potential. Looks like you've really put some thought into it. Been considering trying out my RP skills. I'll have to think on it. Availability is mostly my issue, but even if that stops me, others should get in on it! Sounds like a great idea! I would think about changing the Camp Follower rank though for folks (and I might fit into this category). When I think Camp Follower, uh.. I think "prostitute" to put it bluntly. What about "Free Auxiliary" maybe?

    Ack! Yeah, I'll change that. ^^; Wasn't aware that carried those connotations.

    And thanks for the reply! Hope you'll consider joining in when/if I can get this off the ground.

    I really enjoyed the thought you put into this idea. If you ever do get this off the ground update the thread, I would be interested in a rp-pvp experiance such as this.

    Just about the only time I take an interest in PvP is when RP is involved. I would love to participate - and I'm sure most of Synergy would, too - once this gets off the ground. Consider my heals to be your heals!

    I think that this is a great concept. I know a few members of Resurgence, would be interested if you are able to get this off the ground.

    I would make an alt for this. Always been interested in RP and if I could destroy some filthy defiant it would make it even better.

    Make the Guild already!! I'm all jazzed about it . Played my alt that I'm going to use for this in Warfronts yesterday and realized I'm pretty awful in melee PvP. I need a LOT of work. I might have to pick a keypad type thing for my left hand, cuase hitting buttons on the regular keyboard whilst running about is giving me trouble. I'll take pointers from anyone that has 'em. Right now my PvP role as Warrior appears to be "Target" . I will be "Tharpe" in game for this so if anyone sees me flailing about...have some compassion please cuase it's ugly right now.

    Wow! I'm pretty psyched to see there is so much interest in this idea!

    I'll get a guildlaunch set up for us in the next hour or so, and once we have 7~ people signed up we'll set a date to assemble this in-game. Guilds wishing to be "allies" with us, and be offered participation when we do world PvP campaigns and the like, are also encouraged to check out the site once I update this post with the link. Looking forward to playing with everyone!

    Small update - The site is established, but I'd like to wait to link people to it until my graphic designer finishes a banner and some imagery for it. ^^

    Anyone wanting to get a new/current character ready for this, we are looking for the following criteria in our characters:


    IC - Must be capable of following orders and respecting the chain of command. Characters with a bit of 'attitude' will need to keep it in check IC, or risk IC demotion/sanctions. Just a heads up to you the player. And naturally, your character's reasons for fighting are totally up to you. We welcome anything from sellswords to zealots. :3

    OOC - Level is not a major issue, but characters at 50 will have an easier time. Guild will arrange leveling sessions to help get everyone there. Prior experience with PvP is not needed, as I will be attempting to arrange to have veteran PvPers teach the ins and outs of each role.

    Site is up! My graphics designer still hasnt gotten a theme ready for the site, but I'd rather not wait any longer.

    Any players who wanted to join, just follow the steps in the Guild Information section of the forums! Any guilds that wanted to be allies with us, and participate in PvP events, is welcome to shoot me a PM on Guildlaunch so I can give you access as well.

    Just keeping us in the limelight! This should be a hoot folks, head to the site and sign up for some mayhem. When we're big, maybe we can give guided tours of Meridian "...and over here Ladies and Gentlemen is where they used make their unnatural machines" .
