...and thus a new Guild was Born!
- Formed from the thoughts of SkelletonKinG and Stonerbabe came the nascent entity called Reaper Madness.
- Shortly thereafter occurred the cataclysm.
- Stonerbabe, now restless and driven by other passions, left to meet her destiny elsewhere. Scully, bereft, wandered the wilds and unfrequented places, seeking answers to questions that could not be answered. He sought the advice of drunken demigods in the dimly lit corners of overcrowded taverns, talked to the spirits of long dead lounge rats, suffered the diatribes of naked witches dancing in the moonlight, and endured the silence of a cranky Enu.
- With the aid of The Infernal Walking Salad he endeavored to obtain assistance in setting things right once again. After a not so thorough search (which turned up little), and in an act of total desperation he chose his Cavia porcellus: Nagual. What was he thinking!
- And so it came to pass, Nagual passed the mantle of leadership to ArrowyNN. ArrowyNN offering many thanks and gratitude to Nagual for his help. His valued friend and ally, knowing his task was complete, set off to parts unknown...
Like many of the guilds you’ll find in Dofus, we strive to employ the principles of honor, loyalty, and respect. Failing that, a good kick in the pants may be in order. We’d like to think that the reason people join a guild is because there is strength in numbers and it makes for a more enjoyable gaming experience. Additionally, being the social creatures we are, it means people will always remind you of your most fantastic failures, tell others about them, and laugh wildly all the while.
Better people make for a better time. We would much rather take the decent, respectful person and help them grow and develop, than a disruptive force no matter what the level. Oh, and it helps to have a sense of humor - trust me, you’ll need it.
Who Part IIEdit
There are no minimum level requirements to join. After all, a Level 50 character who is also a butthead is just a Level 50 Butthead. We believe that bringing someone in early and giving them a place to grow is more likely to engender respect and loyalty.
It is expected that experienced players will help where they can with those who are new to the guild and to Dofus. On the flip side we ask that new members, especially lower levels, be patient, not BEG for handouts (it’s better if you contribute something to the cause - even your own), and realize that we all have to start somewhere and higher level guild members may be have higher level priorities.
Both P2P and F2P are welcome to join.
Enjoy yourself and the company of others. That’s pretty much it.
All new guild members are assigned this rank. These players have no assigned rights. While in approval status the nominated player must hunt with at least 1 officer (or above) before they are approved for promotion. Players also must donate 500 XP before being considered for promotion. XP is set to the default 10%
- Minimum Level: None
- Minimum Guild XP: 500 XP
The minimum XP is set to 10%. These players have no assigned rights. Everyone will spend time here - it's called "doing time."
- Minimum Level: 22
- Minimum Guild XP: 3000 XP
This rank has the primary duty of protecting the Collectors. After proven reliability and performance, Defenders will be permitted to receive kamas from a Collector. Players are given rights to manage their own XP, but we require a minimum of 5% at all times for any rank above Servant. This is our guild and it needs to grow. Players henceforth are given the right to invite new members.
- Minimum Level: *
- Minimum Profession Level: 40 (in at least one profession)
- Minimum Guild XP: Negotiable
The purpose of the Manufacturer should be self-evident. They make and procure items for the guild/guild members. They are permitted to access items and materials from the Collectors. A good Manufacturer can make a guild something special. A Manufacturer has a right to profit, but they are expected to offer discounts to fellow guild members.
- Minimum Level: 33
- Minimum Guild XP: 8000 XP
This rank is considered a grooming post for higher positions. Emphasis is on helping newer and/or less experienced guild members, active identification and recruitment of suitable prospects, and Keepers of the peace. They should be the first to be contacted for information regarding the guild and Dofus.
- Minimum Level: 44
- Minimum Guild XP: 20000 XP
This rank has to have demonstrated integrity and trustworthiness. They are permitted full access to the Collectors and will work closely with Manfucturers and Guild Leadership on distribution of collected resources. There will only ever be 1 Treasurer at any time.
- Minimum Level: *
- Minimum Guild XP: *
The highest rank the guild has. Besides the obvious qualities needed to be promoted to this rank, these players need to be adept at handling all aspects of running the guild. Their focus is guild success and advancement, and everything that comes with it. Promotion to Officer is a closely guarded secret involving an obscure and arcane Dofus ritual.
Oh, and if you are not sure what qualities an officer needs to hold this rank, then you are not quite ready…
Officers have full guild rights and access to the Collectors.
Not a rank as such, but obviously it has to mean something. When we figure it out, we’ll post something…
If the leader steps down, aside, leaves, etc…, the officers of the guild will select the next leader based on a simple majority vote. Choose well…
Placement of the Collectors is not a topic open for discussion. The Officers/Leader, with coordination of the Manufacturers, will make the decision. They are expensive to maintain and need adequate strength/power/people to defend them. Therefore it is a decision not to be taken lightly.
Collectors exist for the good of the guild. Period. Access rights have been laid out above.
Please keep in mind that this (Dofus) is not a perfect medium and that context is sometimes difficult to derive, jokes hard to detect and fathom, that delays occur and if someone doesn't respond IMMEDIATELY to your post it doesn't mean they are mad/upset/mean. Maintain your composure, stay calm, and things will work out just fine.
That’s about it for now, have fun, don’t be a butthead, and hopefully we’ll see you around. If interested in joining, contact Arrowyn or Asza.
