1. All potential members must register for the website to enable them to read guild rules, guild philosophies and be aware of upcoming events. If any rule is unclear, feel free to whisper me ingame, or mail me.
2. Any and all rules can be covered by this 1 basic law. Respect others. Sure, we mess around and joke, but there's a limit, and once its crossed, you can end up offending someone, which can lead to bigger problems. So keep relaxed, laid back, and respect others. There is another, equally important rule.. Whatever you do... DON'T FEED THE DRAMA!! Many a guild has been put asunder by the Dreaded Drama Beast. He is a vicious creature that thrives on ignorance, misunderstanding, rumor and countless other things us humans are known to have/do in abundance. If you encounter a problem with a guild/nation mate , guild/nation leader, please try to disengage from the situation and if necessary discuss it with Jilesponie or Warmonger or StihlMe and we will take steps to deal with the problem w/o it escalating or bringing reprecussions to the ENTIRE guild.
Warmonger or Jiles will deal with any and all drama beasts RELENTLESSLY!
3. Be Active "Guild experience is earned when active guild members progress in their personal quests, and guild crafting." We must have active players for the guild to progress. Active entails more than logging on and sitting in town. Long periods of inactive behavior can result in you being booted from the guild. Two weeks without logging in w/o discussing it with an officer (cause we worry) can result in getting you booted from the guild.
4. Town Quests and Dungeons
Town Quests are one of the things members can do to help the guild. We get not only guild points, but points for town stats, and you get exp as well. Each member may do 5 per day, I would like if everyone tries to do at least 1 a day whenever possible. Consistent completion of Town Quests is strongly considered when guild assistance or benefits are distributed.
Guild Dungeons/TC: the name says it all! This is a guild and how we function as one is greatly reflected by this activity. It is not just about the rewards we can get, or even the points the guild aquires, (although those are great too ), it is an indicator of members' desire and willingness to work together as a whole for the betterment of the guild. That should be why you joined this guild. Plus, they're fun, and that is why we play!
Because of the importance of guild dungeons/TC to everyone, officers are requested to attempt one GD/TC/Guild Raid/etc. per week. This demonstrates their responsibility to their post, and their willingness to help newer members of the guild, as we hope they were helped when they arrived. Members are asked to try to attend GD's and TC's when they are online and available, level permitting.
Nation Dungeons: Although not mandatory, attendence to them will be taken into account for contests, officer positions, gear sharing, and any other perks that guild membership may entitle you to. NDs are the main way the guild contributes to the nation. Since we are the leading guild in Sunrise we want to set a good example for the nation, so please help us achieve that goal when you are able.
Note: The most important thing we can do for our nation is treat it with respect. Proper conduct in chat and nation activities is not only a reflection on our guild, but a REQUIREMENT for continued membership.
5. USE OF GUILD CRAFT SLOTS
The guild craft slots are available to all members of the guild. With that in mind please use the following guidelines(not rules) when setting crafts, so that all members have a chance to access the GC.
This is probably the one thing that will not be tolerated, in the guild or nation:
Begging for gold/items is unacceptable. You will be warned once. Excessive begging (more than once!) will not be allowed; we can help you help yourself by giving advice and pointing you in the right direction, providing you with presents at various levels, teach you ways to make money, item infos, pro advice and so much more. Actively contributing members are sought out by leaders and officers and even other guildies for things they need, and usually don't have to ask too long for skills, info, advice, etc. Remember, we are here to give hand ups, not hand outs!
7. We Do Not Support Botters!
ANYONE caught botting by Jilesponie, Warmonger, Stihlme, or other respected officer of Sunrise, will IMMEDIATELY be considered for kicking! Second chances are given, but it is rare! If u want to be in this nation, DO NOT BOT HERE !
NOTE: Being caught means we used SEVERAL techniques to get your attention while you are actively engaging mobs and healing. There are other indicators we look for also. If we are unable to contact you for an extended period of time you may be booted on the spot. The botting issue is very heated atm, so we suggest not AB'ing AFK for long stretches without watching your screen at the least. We also ask that you acknowledge any contact from guild/nation leaders as quick as possible w/o bothering your play, this will reduce the chances of a misunderstanding and bad feelings.
OK So you will take notice that the rules list is fairly short. We rely greatly on our ability to choose ppl who are like minded, with regards to wanting to build a home here and that we can share our resources and knowledge for the good of everyone. We are pretty laid back when it comes to how you want to play the game, adult content in chat, and even respectfully roasting officers and leaders. However we are VERY serious when it comes to maintaining the concept, integrity, and spirit of an actual functioning guild, where ppl share and help each other grow and get stronger as a whole. We will take whatever steps are necessary to preserve those ideals. So please take a moment and seriously think if u share these same ideas and want to help us grow while WE do the same for you. If you dont share these traits it will easily show and u wont fit in here.
THANK YOU again for joining and have fun! Thats why we're here!
Sincerely Jiles & War :)
