The game is so full of evil we should be battling, do we have to have such evil characters on top of that? It's all I am asking, some kind of normalcy. The wedding was nice even though not everyone attended. I understand not everyone has time to devote to the game at a certain time.
I want to see more fun and happy events. I want to see a way to bring people together that is not all out fight and battle and someone dies. It gets very depressing!!

But it is up to the guild, I am simply saying that parties and small hang outs and get togethers, while fun don't always suit everyone.

We have to cater to many different sets of skills and likes/dislikes. We're all unique, as far as our styles go. I really hate to say it, but you're both right. We can't ask people to change for a game, and I'm very damn well not even going to go down that road.
09/11/2012 08:03 AMUsing the LO as an example they have the story line of them creating an undead army using powerful weapons from the era of the Lich King to control the Undead and are taking control of the ruins of the Scarlet Enclave, that plot is going on for months now. If we could get a plot like that where the bad guy isn't in our 24/7 and we aren't out to see it end so soon then we'd have more fun with it.

We need to find a balance, yes. I have nothing against the LO, but we're -not- the LO. Imperion has a great set of stories, and a great set of people, but again, we're our own set of people and characters, and we have our own stories.
I am going to ask that we wrap up what can be wrapped up, as far as Vira, Alen, and Ash go, and we put a pause in Tyrael's story arc and get ourselves in order, IC and OOC. I'm asking for you all to help me with this, we need to get everyone together, in game, on skype, or on the guild site, and work things out. I see a lot of drama and flames boiling up here, and I want to stop it.
We need to decide where we want to go with things. A larger, more involved story-line where we're not fighting someone off constantly would be good, I think. We're looking for people who are capable of working together, not fighting with each other. And, to be honest, that's what I'm seeing, is arguments that could be more civil. I want to move this off of the forums, for a number of reasons.
I also want to have a conversation about where we want the guild to go.
Admittedly, Mia does have a point that guild interviews do have a place. On my other server, I have interviewed many people before inviting them to our guild to make certain that they are a good match. If not, I would refer them to another guild that would better suit what they wanted out of of the game.
As far as interviews go, I think it is a very good idea, and something else we need to discuss as a group
09/10/2012 06:08 AMShould we ask for an in character oath to protect and serve the Fellowship and to promote unity by making sure anyone who joins is aware we are all bound by it? Yes, most definitely. If a new recruit is aware that we are all bound by it, it may help them to realize that they are a member of a group of people that share the same ideals and such.

I am hesitant to force an oath on anyone. If they want to join the guild, they can prove to us that they will try, and abide by our rules, but I think it's a bad idea to choose to force
a character decision on them. That's not why we're here. We're here to have fun, and the help others have fun.
09/10/2012 08:21 PMBut my only point was that we are limiting the amount of, to use the DnD personality chart we lose out on Lawful Evil, Neutral Evil and Chaotic Evil. Simple as that.

Yes, we lose out on some of this, but at the same time, I don't want to open up the Fellowship to evil, because as a concept, that's not what we are. We're aiming to be a group of characters that help each other, and yes, we fight evil, but on such a large scale? Maybe.
It's not all about fighting evil, nor is it all about not fighting evil. I keep reiterating that we need to find a balance, and we will, eventually, but we need to talk things out. Alright?
Now, I think that's all I wanted to say. I am open to talking to all of you, privately or not, just we need to be careful.
Let me also say that I'm not trying to ostracize anyone, understand that. I know I can come across harshly, but I think that's necessary right now.
