The Ex Umbris Charter
HomeForumsDiscord

Ex Umbris is a community guild and we intend to have a very good reputation on our server. We intend to be skilled, knowledgeable and honourable players with the shared goal of enjoying the game from level 1 to where we finally log out.

Ex Umbris is about having fun, we are a guild that has come together in order to have fun exploring virtual worlds and challenging the content that the devs have prepared for us.

Ex Umbris is a guild that works as a team, has fun and is able to overcome any obstacles laid before it!

Ex Umbris is not an Uber guild, we are a guild of players that fall between the monikers of casual and hardcore.

Ex Umbris as a guild will be focused on exploring the many aspects of the game: exploration, crafting, perception and when we get to the right points in the game we will be raiding.

Ex Umbris does not recommend power levelling to the end of the game, but instead taking your time to explore the game before the "end game".

Ex Umbris a mutual support community, Ex Umbris would like our members to help each other.

Ex Umbris is not a PvP or a RP guild, however we will have members that enjoy both activities and we will do what we can to support both play styles (as long as they do not detrimentally affect the rest of the guild).

Ex Umbris is a home and a family, not an isolated guild locked away from the rest of the server.

Ex Umbris is firmly against the secondary market and the effect it has on games that are not intended to have it.

Our guild members are players and citizens of the MMOs we play. We understand that we have benefits and responsibilities as players and game-world citizens. Foremost amongst these benefits and responsibilities are Community participation, the ability to experience Game Content, the concept of Mutual Benefit, the protection of a positive Guild Culture, and the importance of Guild Organization.

Community

Our guild will contribute positively to the communities that we inhabit. Our name will be known and recognizable and be associated with honesty, integrity, good gamesmanship, and knowledgeable, skillful play. To the best of our ability, we will maintain good relationships with other guilds, individuals, and organizations on our server of choice. We will maintain a presence on server boards, class boards, affiliate boards, and the official game boards.

Game Content

Our members will have access to game content they desire and which is reasonably achievable. We will maintain a guild size that will allow us to viably progress in all spheres of play. Game progression is an ultimate, but not overriding goal. The pace of forward progress in the game will not be mandated, but will be a direct result our membership’s desires and availability for participation.

The games we play have their roots in traditional PnP, Computer and On-Line RPGs. Our guild will support many forms of role playing.

Mutual Benefit

The members will contribute to the guild and the guild will contribute to its members. Our guild is a "family" guild. There will never be required game play timeslots or events. Tithes on in-game loot or cash will likewise never be required. Member's voluntary contributions, time spent in guild events, direct assistance of membership, et. al. will be recorded and recognized. Guild event loot is a privilege, not an entitlement. Transactions between members following this principle are always highly encouraged.

Culture

The guild culture will be supportive of a wide variety of play styles and lifestyles. All age groups will be represented. Respect is a key ingredient in allowing a diverse membership to coexist and thrive. We will protect our guild culture from inappropriate, disrespectful, and disruptive behaviour.

Guild Organization

Our guild will maintain an organization to run the affairs of the guild. The organization must include a guild leader. The guild leader is ultimately solely responsible for achieving the goals set forth in this document. He or she may seek volunteers, arrange for a vote, or otherwise appoint lead persons and officers to support him or her in this endeavour. The lead persons and officers must recognize their responsibility to support the goals of the guild according to the guild leader and this document. These lead persons and officers must further recognize that their position confers no additional privilege over other members of the guild.

Recruiting

Recruiting is open! All who would call Ex Umbris home may, if they are so inclined.
