Hello potential guild-mates!

The Tribe (Horde, Aggramar-US PVE CST) is opening its doors and actively recruiting new members. Since the guild's creation in December of 2004, <The Tribe> has become a widely recognized guild tag with an honorable reputation. Our core values of honesty, integrity, and fostering a community that values friendship over a piece of loot is what has made us successful through all of the ups and downs that this game has presented us with over the years. We will continue to uphold these principles through Cataclysm and beyond.

Our main activity as a guild is raiding, and we fall somewhere between "casual" and "hardcore" in terms of our approach. While we are 8/8 in Dragon Soul (as of 2/2/12) we've gotten to that point much slower than hardcore raiding guilds because of our "RL-friendly" raiding policies that are forgiving of the fact that people have families/kids/school/jobs. We prefer to utilize a single 25-man raid per week whenever possible, but since we go out of our way to accommodate out-of-game obligations, our members' availability to attend raids can fluctuate. This means that in any given week we may run only one or two 10-man timers all the way up to multiple 25-man timers - whatever gets the highest number of available and qualified Tribe members raiding. We strive to keep a good balance between being fair and accessible as well as putting our best foot forward to be successful in raids. This is just a small part of what makes us The Tribe; if you're interested in learning more about our policies and governance, check out our guild charter here: http://www.tribeofwarcraft.com/tribe-charter

In addition to providing an accessible raid experience, our guild participates in lots of diverse activities - PvP (we have a High Warlord and a Battlemaster), non-raid achievements, grouping/leveling for new characters and alts, etc. But the real reasons behind what makes The Tribe so great is all of the extra, non-game-based "content" that we offer - primarily a great community of friends who participate on an active forum (over 110,000 posts). You can check out our forums here: http://forum.longlivethetribe.com/ Don't let what you can see as a guest fool you, though; most of our boards are members-only. Our forum topics range from guild news to off-topic goofing around to serious, class-specific theorycrafting/coaching and everything in between. Additionally, we create our own events - we do an in-game "Secret Santa" gift exchange around Christmastime, we organize competitions (scavenger hunts, world PVP events, hide-and-seek, etc.), and we even have an annual RL party in the Chicagoland area over 4th of July weekend each year that has affectionately come to be known as "Tribefest".

We're looking for players who:

* Are mature (the average age of our members is roughly 30) yet still have a good sense of humor

* Want to be a part of a friendly community and don't view the social part of the game as a "necessary evil"

* Have the ability and desire to raid successfully, but not at the expense of real life commitments or guild relationships

* Can take advantage of our scheduled raids and other scheduled activities (typically 8pm-11pm central time, 2+ nights per week - attendance not mandatory)

* Want to help their guildmates by organizing or participating in other impromptu guild activities like PvP, unscheduled instance/raid groups, crafting, etc.

However, if you're interested in getting realm-first raiding achievements, always doing hard-mode versions of encounters, guild policies that actively exclude less-skilled players rather than try to help them get better, etc. then we can tell you already that we’re probably not a good fit for you. If you do meet our criteria and The Tribe sounds like a place you could call home, then we encourage you to apply here: http://forum.longlivethetribe.com/viewforum.php?f=19 Also, feel free to catch us in-game - whether it be an officer or member, you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone that doesn’t like to talk about the great guild that they are a part of.

We're excited to hear from you!

Cristalia, Chieftess of The Tribe

How is Ayup? (And Byup, Cyup, and the other yuppers...)

Ayup is doing well! I only see him in RL nowadays but he hasn't lost his sense of humor or found his pants. =) Byup and Cyup are almost as big (and hairy) as their dad and probably twice as smelly. I'll try to bug him and see if he won't check these forums a bit more often.

I hope your recruitment drive is very successful. The Tribe has always been a fixture on Aggramar, and is inhabited by some pretty great folks!
