Acolytes Mission Statement

The Acolytes are multi mmo gaming community and we have just recently opened a branch for Warhammer Online. Yes, we know that the release dates are still quite a ways off, but we are trying to get a good core of people started off early, developing friendships and bonds, tactics and plans, so that we as a whole will be better prepared to take on what both worlds have to throw at us.

Our goal from the very beginning, will to be a mature and active guild, that and to have fun at what we do. We also plan to do our part to continue the ongoing story behind both games. We willparticipating in PVP, and we plan on taking down our enemies with no looking back!

We will be playing the Destruction side of the conflict, and plan on having certain objectives for our guild and it's members, so that we all can be as successful as possible.

We expect all Acolyte members to treat each other in a courteous and respectful manner at all times. People join this guild to help one another, to have fun, and to form long lasting friendships; therefore, it can only be assumed that a friendly attitude is desired towards all fellow guild mates, it's allies and the game itself.

Everyone from around the world are more then welcome to join the ranks of The Acolytes. Currently we have a wide variety of Americans, various other Europeans, Australians, Norwegians, Canadians and even a few Texans in our guild, and our membership is open to everyone who wishes to apply and pass the 10 day trial period. Our first and foremost objective however will be PvP, but all playstyles will be welcome. Roleplay is encouraged, but by no means required.

If you're interested in reading more or applying please visit the Recruitment Section here on our forums: http://www.the-acolytes.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=229

You will find step by step guides.

Any questions just post here, PM, visit our forums or pop on IRC for a chat!



Membership & Participation

We are looking for mature players who are willing to join the Acolytes. We want people who love to play MMO's and want to have fun while playing! It will be a requirement to be on our Ventrilo server when the game launches for large scale PvP battles and/or raids.

The Acolytes also require that you have somewhat of a unique name. Names with numbers and phrases will not be allowed, other then that let your imagination run wild for the most part. We encourage our members to be on as much as they can to help progress their character and the guild.

We will have a lot of members that are on a lot, but we realize there are more important things in life then gaming. We want our members to enjoy themselves while they are immersing themselves in AoC.

If our guild can accomplish that, people will want to be around as much as possible. If you feel that you would be a good fit, please finish reading the rest of the required information on our forums and submit your application at the end.

Character Names

As stated at least two places within our documentation, character names are required to respect the likely rules for an RPPvP server. It is a bit early to have the actual rules themselves, but as other MMO RP server rule sets indicate, they are normally pretty much the same. For mere help on deciding on a name click here.

Don't use:

* Common modern names such as Bob
* Names comprised of multiple words (Nounverb, Verbnoun, Adjectivenounverbnoun etc.)
* Mis-spelled yet obvious words
* Names specific to well known historical or modern day celebrities, political, religious figures
* Names that will obviously be offensive to a specific group of people
* Names which are one letter off or very similar to established character names

After you have Applied:

To make your trial period go as smoothly as possible we have listed below some helpful tips.

* Your character’s name must be of some type of RP name or your application will be on hold until a more appropriate one is chosen.
* The application itself must be filled out correctly with both the questions and answers, preferably in different colors as this makes it easier to read.
* Sloppy and/or “leet” themed applications will be rejected promptly. The Acolytes pride themselves on maturity and cohesiveness, if you wish to be a part of this group, a well constructed application is necessary.
* If several parts of the application are viewed as substandard then your application will not be processed, please make every effort to present a quality application the first time you submit it.
* The Acolytes believe in team building and mutual respect, well do not tolerate those who bring unnecessary drama and tension within our guild.
* Please try and have your application filled out properly the first time you submit it. Incomplete and/or non profession applications have been and will continue to be rejected by the Recruitment Officer.

Recruitment Process

Every single new recruit must read the required information and then fill out and submit application. One of our Recruitment Officers will find your application and will start your trial period. Also they will upgrade your forum rank to Apprentice. This will allow to you access more forums, but still restrict you from our members area.

Your trial period will last 10 days. During those days our members will read your application. Some of them will post a good luck wish or even want to ask you a question. In the mean time you can browse our forums. You can post questions you might have, show off your knowledge of the game lore, in sort getting familiar with our guild and our members. Also you can socialize with our members on Ventrilo or our IRC Channel. It is highly suggested that an applicant be active in chat, an applicant that posts and isn't seen since is... less than likely to be admitted, we want active members.

During your trial period our Senior Members and Officers will vote yes or no. They will base their vote on any combination of the following factors:

* Overall layout of your Application
* Content of your Application
* Quantity of your Forum Posts
* Quality of your Forum Posts
* How well they got to know you as a person
* Your MMO Experience

This doesn't imply you should flood our forums or present yourself as the founding father of Nilihum, just be yourself. When the number of yes-votes exceeds the number of no-votes after those 10 days, you will be granted membership of the Acolytes.

He pushed the door open glad to finally enter into a tavern lit with a warm fire. The roaring air outside became just a whisper as he shut the door with bloodied hands. All was quiet and yet he knew there were those watching him, waiting to see what he would do next. He shrugged off the prying eyes and looked for a place to set his sheild. He would keep his blade with him as a precaution for even he knew that death waited patiently for those who let down their guard.

Once settled at a small table in the back corner away from the rest of the patrons he accepted the chalice of wine presented to him by the fair tavern girl. Her hair fell down her chest covering the jewels of her bosum. He had been in many topless taverns but in none were there any that were good to look upon. This must be the tavern he has been looking for ...

"Hear me," he roared as he stood up with chalice in hand. The patrons all turned and with a suspicious eye looked the traveler over.

"I have crossed barren wastes of land filled with the blood of those too weak to live. I have fought beasts and demons that no man should have ever known existed. I have sleeped in the carcus of dead animals to stay warm in the cold of the night. All of this to find a place to call home."

He stepped into the middle of the room looked about the room.

"Tonight I have found either the place of my death ... or the beginning of my new life. With this chalice raised I toast the mighty Acolytes, and if you not be Acolytes then let the bloody fight begin!"

He stood waiting ... is this his new home? Or will he fight until they overtake him?

One stood and for a moment made no move. Then he approaced the traveler until they stood face to face.

"Raise you chalice and be counted one of us!" he said as he patted the traveler on the shoulders. All those others within stood and with drink in hand they chanted "one of us!" and then drank up.

"So friend," the one who approaced continued, "my name is Avery, who might you be?"

The traveler finished off his wine and wiped his mouth ... "My name is Thornrage"

Greetings aspiring Acolytes and guests!

I feel it is my duty as an Erudite of the Acolytes to warn you about our guild. Certain Acolyte members are known to hump our visitor's legs. We do not encourage this behavior and I strongly advise if they do approach you; do not make eye contact and just back away slowly!

These leg humpers are very cleaver creatures and once they latch on it's very difficult to get them off until their done. Therefor, we provide all guests with a survival kit including; mace, beating stick and a cattle prod for a last line of defense.

One last thing, please fasten your straight jacket and prepare for the ride of your life. ;)
