1) Consent is key. Want to jump into an RP with someone? Have a great idea on how to get involved in a story? ASK. I promise, having an OOC talk about your ideas isn't going to ruin an RP. It might, however, prevent you from headaches and drama down the line to hash out what you're getting into. Not getting consent is often called "godmoding" where you step in with some grand idea and force it on everyone else. Just because someone doesn't call you on it right then, doesn't mean it's okay.
2) You represent the guild. You may not be an officer or the guild leader, but this guild name is displayed prominently beneath your name at all times. When interacting with others - especially outside our own guild - think about how your actions can be taken from an out-of-character perspective. If you are RPing and think another person is taking your asshole character too seriously, try talking to them to make sure they understand there are no hard feelings between you as players. And if you're being an asshole OOCly - such as during hard modes or raids - keep in mind you're making the entire guild look like a bunch of assholes. This isn't fair to your guild mates, and if you get a reputation as an asshole, you may be removed to prevent it from spreading to everyone else.
3) We are primarily an RP guild. While we enjoy running delves/raids/etc. together, in the end, we're still role-players. That has always been - and always will be - the main focus of this group. We strive to balance everything with that. If you're looking for a hardcore raiding guild with trash talking and min-maxing, we probably aren't the place for you.
4) The officers and the guild leader are here to help. If there is ANYTHING bothering you, talk to one of us. This can be something as simple as needing help with an RP hook into a story or as complicated as a problem you may be having with another player. We've been RPing a long time, and we've probably seen it before and, if we haven't, we can at least offer some outside perspective or make sure that the issue isn't conflicting with our guild rules and conduct guidelines. We would rather know about something BEFORE it gets out of hand then find out after it blows up in someone's face. No one likes drama bombs. Let us help defuse them for you if we can.
5) Be active. Players who have not logged in in 30 days may be removed from the guild at the guild leader's discretion if no prior arrangement is made. If this happens to you, don't fret! You can always ask to come back and in most cases it won't be an issue. Still, do yourself a favor and if you think you'll be gone that long, let an officer know. As an RP guild, we want to have players that are engaged. We're not a place to shove an alt you never play. If you join us, we want to play with you!
6) Involve others. We know you have specific friends you like to hang out with and RP with, but we are a guild. Involve others, invite everyone in the guild to join you, be it dailies, RP whatever. The guild will grow and prosper the more we have involved. We'd like to avoid having cliques pop up.
7) Be mindful of our minor members. While most of us are adults and we don't mind a little mature humor or subject matter, be aware of your audience. We do have a few minors in the guild, so it's a good idea to pay attention who might be logged into the game or on TeamSpeak before you bring up certain topics. No one's saying you have to keep it squeaky clean, but be mindful of what you're saying and who will hear it.
8) Respect your fellow guildmates. If someone has asked to stop doing something because it bothers them, please just stop. There's no need to argue about it. And if someone is doing something that bothers you, try talking to them about it instead of getting angry or upset. We're all friends here and keep in mind it's unlikely anyone is specifically out to piss you off. Try not to take anything too personally or seriously. But if you ARE offended, simply asking nicely should suffice. And no, this doesn't only apply to an officer asking you you to stop - just respect each other. On a related note, topics such as politics and religion can often get heated, so it is recommended that they are avoided in guild chat and on TeamSpeak if at all possible. If you are asked to drop a topic - just drop it. For more information on how to address conflicts, please see our Dispute Resolution Guidelines.
